Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
And I forgot to say that you are so right with the need to focus on beauty or positive things from time to time, in view of the many dreadful things we read about or research into. Our continuous BALANCE is required so that we can continue to be effective in contributing to a positive world.


The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant ... if we remind ourselves that even though the world has taken a turn for the worst there are still many many beautiful and positive things left.

I think that forums like GLP and also stuff such as the headlines in the MSM can have a negative effect on us. If we constantly read negative things we also can become negative ourselves. To counteract this I have an upturned box at the side of my computer. On the face of it I've written -

I am happy.
I am joyful.
I am secure.
I am good fun.
I am not anxious.

And I read it all the time. This may sound crazy but it has actually helped improve my mood no end. Try it and you too may be surprised :)

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
This is not crazy at all, dear AC. This is a good example of how to change through increased awareness, and your experience is proof that it can be done!!!

Another method would be to do five-minute writing sessions at the beginning and the end of each day. If, for example, I feel insecure, I would write I AM SECURE ten times. And each time after writing this, I would write down immediately what comes into my mind. For example:

I AM SECURE - well, I am not feeling like it just now
I AM SECURE - the first time I drove by myself I had a great feeling
I AM SECURE - when my boss was angry at me yesterday at 14.oo, I felt really knocked down

etc. etc. The more precise the information (e.g. at 14.00), the more you will focus on when you feel secure and when you are not. If you continue to do these sessions for a couple of weeks, and then read it all through, some sort of pattern will start to emerge which will help you understand yourself better, and how to combat the problem better.

Congratulations on your progress, AC.hf

IF WE TRACK OUR ACTIVITIES


If we take a long hard look at how we spend the 24 hours of our day, how many of those hours are spent in a "profitable" way, not in the sense of HOW MUCH MONEY DID I EARN IN THAT HOUR, but DID I SPEND THAT HOUR TO ASSIST SOMEONE, OR TO IMPROVE A SITUATION, OR TO UPLIFT THE VIBRATION OF THE EARTH? Or, did I spend that hour drifting around, procrastinating, recovering from some self inflicted excess, living in a virtual reality or swallowing "entertainment"?

Just as we periodically throw rubbish out of our rooms/flats/houses, we should similarly periodically "clean out" or lives and our MINDS, in order to accelerate on a path of joy and fulfillment.

How can this be achieved? By TRACKING OURSELVES, writing down what we do, what we eat, where we go, how often we rest, how long we sleep, what we buy, when we "clean". Tracking oneself is not a method of JUDGEMENT, for is it not an order to change this or that - it is simply WRITING THINGS DOWN.

However, after a week of writing things down, and re-reading all that, we will gain MORE AWARENESS of our habits, our successes, or "failings". A pattern will emerge, and because we are increasingly AWARE OF THESE PATTERNS, they are increasingly easy to change IF WE WISH. Thus we will become more effective, happier and more loving to ourselves and others.

IF WE PAY ATTENTION TO THE REQUESTS OF OTHERS


How many times do we actually MISS THE POINT of what someone is trying to tell us, simply because we are engrossed inner own affairs, or because we go off at a tangent as soon as we recognize something familiar, or because we do not have deep enough empathy to TAKE WHAT THEY ARE SAYING SERIOUSLY. If someone makes a small request, which is easy to fulfill, DO WE BOTHER TO DO IT? And why is it THAT WE CANNOT BE BOTHERED?

The word BOTHER means that we consider the person making the request as someone who is ENCROACHING ON OUR OWN SPACE and TAKING UP OUR TIME. This ensues from the idea that we NEVER HAVE ENOUGH TIME, so we try and protect our boundaries and only give into that which seems EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

If, however, we consider small requests as big important requests, cosmic laws will kick in, and there is great likelihood that people will answer with alacrity to your own needs, especially when it means a lot to you.

REAL LISTENING and trying to find out how someone ticks and what is valuable to them, is a way of increasing understanding, communication and - ultimately - PEACE.

IF WE DEVELOP PATIENCE WHERE IT IS DUE

Lack of patience can sometimes relate to too much ego. We might like to be the "star of the show", we might like to impress others around us, we may like to soak in admiration. Convinced of our superiority, or striving to achieve same, we interrupt others to make our mark, to make ourselves noticed, or to make sure that our self-interested motivations are not overlooked. We write excessive "memos" to our bosses, stating our rights and point of view, taking up time, creating a war on paper, thinking we are at great odds with another, when what we actually did was refuse to hear the other person out.

We cannot be patient, and hear another out, if we are full of anger or resentment. We cannot rationally and measuredly assess a situation if we are colored by hate and prejudice. As always, it is our mandate to research into the real source of these outbursts in ourselves, to discover the hurts and wounds which have left us sensitive, and which lead us to over-react if approached. We are often not under attack: we are simply approached. It is the unhealed wound which senses - erroneously - that we are under attack.

Only when we have cleared all these burdens from the past will we be able to encounter others with fairness, allowing them to tell their story without interruption so that we can better understand them and the real picture. Impatience is an overall term for not being able to wait, for SOMETHING ELSE impelling you to speak, shout or stop the flow of another. Sometimes, stopping the flow of another - if you asses it to be violent or erroneous - is justified, but often it is a reflection of our unprocessed feelings.

How patient are you? How difficult is it for you to take three breaths before replying? How difficult is it for you to listen to someone who immediately irritates you? How much of other people's story are you unaware, all of which culminates in this very moment? How do you wish others to treat you when you are impassioned to speak your mind? May we all improve our patience, for it is a way of learning more.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE DO NOT RUN ON AUTOMATIC


We all have certain habits, beliefs, customs, convictions and experiences which colour our immediate reactions to other people, or to words being said. How much of our conversation is actually original, in the sense of original new thoughts, as opposed to trotting out old concepts, phrases and strategies? In fact, how are we to react to someone, whether we think we know them well or not, for things are always changing, and there is no logical or obvious way of "knowing" exactly what stage that person is at, or what they might just have learnt, or what assistance they might just need.

This is where GODLY INTUITION comes in. This ADAPTS to the situation, each time anew. The GODLY CORE WITHIN will tell you how to approach someone, what they need, if there are any dangers, what it is possible to talk about, and what one should withhold at that specific time. It will also tell us to STOP, if that is the best stance at that particular time.

If we are connected to this source of wisdom within, if we listen to this small still voice and act accordingly, then we will NEVER BE RUNNING ON AUTOMATIC. We will be running according to divine advice, which is always specifically and specially crafted for the listener, and which will ultimately benefit all who actually act upon it, and all who are on the receiving end of this action.

IF WE REMEMBER THERE IS SO MUCH MORE WE DON'T KNOW


We are often so convinced about out own opinion. It is based on facts and situations we have experienced at first hand and which have affected us deeply. Yet these occurred at a certain time between certain people of certain mind-sets, under certain influences, and all these perimeters have the potential for change in a single second.

So if we find ourselves in difficulties, we can step back, take a deep breath and say the following to ourselves:

REMEMBER THERE ARE SO MANY PLACES TO GO,
REMEMBER THERE ARE SO MANY SEASONS TO GROW,
REMEMBER THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WE DON'T KNOW.

IF WE ARE PREPARED TO TAKE TIME TO REPAIR OUR RELATIONSHIPS


Many relationships suffer due to "stress", lack of time and lack of communication. This very valuable exercise, which only takes 10 minutes of our day, is capable of saving marriages:

Partner A says nothing, just listens. Partner B has 5 minutes to talk about anything they want to, without interruption. The sentences should begin with "I" or "I feel" The word "you" is to be avoided. This is about expressing personal feelings, not about accusing others. If there is a break, or silence, then the partners should sit out the 5 minute slot in silence.

Then, partner B says nothing, just listens. Partner A now has 5 minutes to express their feelings, in the same manner as above.

When this 10 minute "ritual is over", both partners go off an do something by themselves. They do no talk to each other for the next half an hour.

Thus can we provide an opportunity for new "mental spaces" to open up, for a deepening of our understanding of each other, and for increased acceptance and compassion.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Well THANK YOU for that, dear AC. It was amazing to see all those different mushroom varieties - increases my awe for nature no end. These are my thoughts as follows: there is indeed a vast network of interlocking systems, formed by and furthered by the mycelia, and this is able to pass on information about danger or food availability, or joy. Many experiments have been done about plants responding differently to different sorts of music, and obviously, if plants are loved and well-cared for, then they flourish, AS DO HUMAN BEINGS ALSO. We are a vital part of the whole network, and due to some superiorities, we are also the GUARDIANS of the network.

What is uppermost in my mind is that we all - plants and mushroom included - have a DIVINE BLUEPRINT, which means that - in optimal conditions - we will grow according to a certain plan. This does not just mean physically, but on a spiritual level. We, and everything else, are here to fulfill a specific duty.

The only thing I would counter in the (second) video is the use of mushrooms for a psychedelic "spiritual" experience. There is a very strong trend - supported by "dark" forces - which suggests that drugs is the answer. From my own experience (and I have never taken any drug), I can only say that spiritual experiences arise from increased awareness and growth. Colorful kaleidoscope visions, and other visions, have had nothing to do with taking external substances.

Thank you again, Ac. We are indeed all connected, similar to the internet, by the common ground we walk upon.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE OVERCOME COMPLACENCY


So many of our daily actions, and also our daily contact with loved ones or colleagues, have become routine, almost predictable. If this is the case, it is good to take a step back from this familiarity, and see WHAT IS EXTRAORDINARY in these people. What is their unique quality? Is there another way that we could react to that?

In addition, there is something else that it is good to always keep in mind - that THEY MAY BE PROGRESSING ON THEIR LIFE'S PATH, meaning that what you thought you knew about this person does not actually apply any more. So we have to "relearn", spend time with them, and see what changes in thinking have occurred. Perhaps, because we have made rapid forward progress, we may view others as being in a pool of stagnation, but maybe they are just progressing at their own - albeit slower - pace.

The solution is to have an actively enquiring mind and no set views about a person or situation. This involves some effort on our part, or we may chose to wallow in complacency, and then WE eventually find ourselves in a place of stagnation. This is the eternal dance - moving together, and sometimes moving apart, to meet again and readjust our thinking, and learn from the process.

IF WE ALL SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE


The plethora of languages on this planet has hindered its evolution into a peaceful global community. We tend to feel closer to those who speak our own language. A feeling of respect and kinship must be developed between all human beings, and language is a great unifying factor. English is the obvious choice for this. This does not mean "losing" great traditions of cultures, it means retaining the best of all traditions and cultures.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Interesting perspective, AC 69543936. Thank you for your comment.

As I see it, trade has been a MAJOR UNIFYING FORCE in the past, and in order to exchange good, people needed to understand each other and learn each others languages. There was relative peace, for example, in the general areas of the Mediterranean all the way to India, at around the time of Jesus, due to prolific trading.

There are still countries like Kenya where 60 languages are spoken (English is just one of them). The result of that is that anyone entering university already speaks three languages: their local tongue, Kiswahili, and then English, which is used at university level.

Using one language ALONE will not bring peace. It will bring nothing, actually, if our level of spirituality is not raised (as you have pointed out). But in COMBINATION with all the other suggestions in this thread, it will make a huge difference.

Thank you for your thoughts, AC. Indeed, much is repetitive, if one has read the whole thread, but many have not, or just read the first post and respond to that. Or have no desire or patience to read on, or are distracted by something, or are looking for the answer to a certain problem only.

There are so many ways of seeing, and so many degrees of "receiving" information. I might say something 20 times, and then someone might turn around and say WHY DID YOU NOT SAY THAT BEFORE! NOW I UNDERSTAND. And I would reply BUT I DID SAY IT BEFORE - BUT YOU WERE NOT IN A POSITION TO HEAR IT BEFORE.

My purpose here is not just to offer solutions BUT TO TRIGGER ACTION. It would be wonderful if someone said OH, GREAT IDEA - I WILL PUT THAT INTO PRACTICE IMMEDIATELY.

Your idea, AC, is that I stop because everything has been said. In one way, that is true - much has been said. On the other hand, the state of affairs on this planet has not improved, so I will continue whenever inspired. Your assessment of me of someone who does nothing but write on the internet is completely erroneous, LOL!

One person, if a good leader without ego and ulterior motives, can have a great effect, yet the greatest "leaders" intentionally make mistakes or dissolve their organization SO THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL IS FORCED TO THINk FOR THEMSELVES, AND FORCED TO TAKE ON RESPONSIBILITY. Thus it is not up to me to just continue a thread like this, but for OTHERS TO CONTRIBUTE AND MANIFEST WHAT IS BEING DISCUSSED HERE.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
I recently met a woman who could not hear or talk. She was one of five children who could not. And both parents could not either - their inability had been passed down to all children ... and this inspires the following:


The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE CONTROL AND IMPROVE OUR GENETICS


If we look around us presently, we see that a percentage of our populations are afflicted in some way by hereditary disease or ailment. Although they can also have happy and fulfilling lives, sometimes leading as inspirational figures, this is not an optimal situation. The quality of our "genetic material" is generally on the decrease. How can these limitations be improved, or even avoided?

Leading edge medical research and technology will, when released and fully available, be able to make a difference in certain cases. But what about the other cases? Would a person with a very highly developed spirituality and extremely strong sense of personal and global responsibility, who also KNOWS that they carry a defective gene or hereditary illness, make a deliberate and conscious decision to have a child?

This, initially, may seem like "giving up on one's rights", but if CHOSEN by the individual, as a way of improving the "genetic pool", then that is not their sacrifice but their deliberate contribution, freely given. If everyone were to develop this level of conscience, everyone would have a perfectly working body.

I think that is an idealistic way of looking at this OP. The idea I do like but how could this be implemented? Every single person on this planet has billions of air pollution and plastic pollution particles inside them. Superoxide's which can be formed when this pollution enters our systems are causing oxidative stress in our bodies, ripping our cells and tearing our tissue apart with their explosive power. How can anyone at any time tell if they are defective or not? Also technology to clean up the mess we've caused in the air, water and soil would have to be developed first before we can prevent these particles entering our bodies and causing harm. As an individual how would you ensure that you aren't full of these damaging particles?

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Indeed, you are right, AC. This could be described as "idealistic", indeed even to try an approach the subject of "peace on earth" could be said to be idealistic, but the alternative is to let the situation degenerate even further, to let the situation continue to go unchecked, to resign oneself to it all with a sense of "there's nothing I can do about it anyway".

The thing is, every single individual can do something about it, and this is what this thread is about - encouraging the growth of awareness. For example, your information on the effect of plastics in the body has grown my awareness of it, as a non-scientific person. THANK YOU.

I agree. At the moment, there is so much pollution - probably much more than we suspect - that our ways of measuring it or assessing it are limited. At least, that is what is TOLD US. I suspect that technology on earth is far more advanced than the general public knows; if we can see our own houses and even washing lines with the help of google maps, WHAT CAN THE MILITARY SEE?

Similarly, on a microcosmic level, I suspect that there is technology which is capable of identifying defective genes/cells. On another level, there is certain "cleaning up" technology WHICH WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE because our level of spirituality is not high enough to use it responsibly. Thus we would use it to kill, rather than preserve life.

Here one may ask: WHO IS WITHHOLDING SUCH TECHNOLOGY? The earth is presently in the claws of a cabal with domination worldwide. They are keeping certain things to themselves, especially if it benefits themselves and harms their enemies. And the technology which is denied us because we are still acting as if we are in Kindergarten, is withheld by galactic observers until we GROW UP and can use it responsibly and ethically.

AC; you ask "how can we ensure that we are not full of damaging particles?". We cannot ensure it, but we can take over full responsibilities for ourselves and our food intake and our surroundings, making no compromises. People who eat meat/fish, or who do not pay meticulous attention to what they "consume" on all levels, and who are bent on living a hedonistic and selfish lifestyle, will not like these words, yet such action is necessary. The alternative is self-destruction.

Yes this is true we are all responsible for our own health no exceptions. But when everything around us is polluted we have to look for different options. What do you know of Alchemy OP? I believe that this is a way to purify our body, soul and spirit. This would lead us to a much better world if everyone engaged with these processes. But it seems that this subject puts people off because on the face of it it's all tangled up with black magic and sorcery which it really isn't about that. It's simply a way to purify and to perfect organic matter and the self. I believe that Alchemy should be taught in schools. This would lead to a much more compassionate society where we not only respected ourselves and others but also the Earth which gives us our strengths and life. If you know of this subject do you have any tips for a budding Alchemist?

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Hello AC: the word "alchemy" conjures up so many associations in different historical and international contexts - the search for the elixir of eternal life, the turning of metal into gold, the search for purification. So I am wondering what you mean in YOUR CONTEXT, and what process you mean exactly.

Indeed, purifying our body and spirit is essential, and they are intricately entwined and interconnected. If we have a blockage in one part of our bodies, it will be connected with a certain mental stance or mental "blockage". Physical digestion problems are linked to problems in our lives which we are not able to digest. If we have a problem with our knees we are invited to ask ourselves how we can become more humble. If we are weaker - or always receiving injuries - on the left side of our bodies, then we are invited to ask ourselves how we override our feelings, not giving them full expression. So whatever we do for our mind affects our body, and vice-versa.

Black magic is practiced by those who know that thoughts and actions always have consequences, and who use that knowledge for negative purposes. The knowledge that thoughts and actions affect others can be used in a positive way. It is a question of motivation. Magic is a word I am not keen on, because nothing is. It may look like something impossible (like magic) but there is always an explanation. Sometimes, the explanation or the phenomenon is beyond our comprehension, but there is still a cause. The use of high spiritual powers is often the cause. Or our own lack of awareness.

Purifying oneself means paying attention to our physical vehicles, and also paying attention to our MINDS. If they are cluttered, confused, fearful, under stress, or unused, then they will stagnate. Continuous growth is essential, combined with continual experience-gathering and the gathering of WISDOM. The more DIVINE WISDOM one accumulates, the less "dense" one's body will become. Wisdom is stored on photons. This means that the more wisdom one acquires, the "lighter" one's bodies become. There are very large celestial beings whose bodies are made of photons - of light - only.

Yes, this sort of information should be taught in schools. The whole school system and curriculum requires changing. Subjects such as meditation, communication, physical disciplines which encourage spiritual growth (yoga and practicing the bow and arrow come to mind, as a method of increasing focus) should become mandatory, to say nothing of art/dance/music, which are still at the "baby stage" or what they could develop into.

Thank you for your interest, AC. I hope I could explain a bit further. I am interested to know what your practice of "alchemy" is and how it can encourage spiritual growth.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you for your interest, AC. I hope I could explain a bit further. I am interested to know what your practice of "alchemy" is and how it can encourage spiritual growth.

Thanks OP I love your wisdom filled replies and never fail to learn something from them.

My understanding of Alchemy is that it is the study of consciousness's relationship to matter. I shall use what I consider to be a 'cornerstone' of Alchemy to explain my interest and use of Alchemy. As within So without.

To me this means that everything we see in our phsycal reality is a reflection of what is happening inside of us. It's as if you're breathing out your reality into existence. Knowing that what is inside of you is being played out in front of you leads one to attempt to 'purify' oneself so the physical experience becomes more fulfilling.

So how does one do that? Well, I read a great piece of wisdom a while ago which goes like this -

'The tragedy of the masses is a tragedy of the mind. It is a failure to recognise themselves in other people ('s behaviour).'

If what is happening outside of you is a reflect of what is inside of you then this will manifest in the behaviour of other people. When bad things happen there is no point in pushing them away or trying to resist them because they are a reflection of your thoughts and behaviour. Saying this is nothing to do with me simply makes it stronger and it will keep on manifesting until you recognise it and cease being like that yourself. Everything that we do everything that we think has a consequence, that's just how energy works. Once you recognise this behaviour as being a part of you then your brain no longer needs to experience it, the lesson has been learned and it will cease to exist. It's the same as let's say opening a door. You don't have to think of where the door handle is because you know it so you approach the door open it and off you go.

How does this relate and encourage my spiritual growth? I would say that by purifying the 'bad' thoughts and behaviour from my experience space then develops for good thoughts and good experiences which in my opinion emanate from the 'hidden' Devine within myself. As within So with out.

I'm not great with words and I read something this morning which actually prompted my post on your thread. This was written by the foremost Alchemist on Earth (as far as I know) Kymia Arts and I shall repeat it here for you -

''The completion of the Philosophers Stone. It is marked by a “divine redness” that emerges from the many color phases witnessed over the past 9 months of incubation.
The Philosophers Stone is actually no Stone at all but manifests as a fine powder. Traditionally, it was know as “The Elixir,” getting its name from the Arabic word Al-Iksir, meaning “powder” or “essence.” The Philosophers Stone was known to be the Elixir of Life - “both for Man and Metals,” and could awaken within form the Divine Light of Truth that would project perfection and life upon the prepared subject. Through its proper use it could be used as a universal panacea, elixir of immortality, or to transmute Lead into Gold. •

In my post on the White phase of the stone, I touched on Purity and stepped my way through to explore the Peacocks Tail, mentioning that “the most pure are shapeshifters.” The Peacocks Tail is the infinite iridescent expression of the many colors/faces that a pure entity holds. This is do to the embodiment of beingness (the way by which purity is achieved) which itself is the eternal source of all. Being eternal, it must of course have an infinite amount of expressions wrapped up within its infinite potential as an infinite being.
But, the completion of the Stone leads us from Purity, through infinity (Peacocks Tail/iridescence) to CLARITY.
Clarity, comes from Latin: Claritas, which means “Divine Splendor/Brightness.” That word Splendor has a proto-indo-European root in it that means “to bear or carry.” The completed stone has achieved full clarity and now bears/carries the internal Splendor of the Divine - the Creator.
It has gone beyond its pure white phase of beingness to a state of Truth Realization where it now experiences itself fully as the source of ALL. Grand Unification.
This is the path. To isolate and putrefy (black). To remove your self-induced suffering/limitation and purify (White). To express your awareness of Self through infinite forms, identities, and talents (Iridescent). Then to embody infinity in a point of presence and become the source of all (Red). As above, so below.
As within, so without.''

This is the path I wish to follow. Hope I've explained my thought's on this clearly.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you also for your detailed thoughts , AC hf In fact, they are completely in alignment with my own. The only difference is the designation. I would not call this "alchemy": I would rather call it improving self-awareness and following the spiritual path, which means that our growth of mind is our main focus, which in turn improves everything and everyone around us (including our own health), as we are all part of the same DIVINE WHOLE.

On this planet there are a great number of terms and methods, including expensive "new age" courses which claim to lead participants to enlightenment, etc. All these designations tend to separate rather than UNITE, and it is this separation - in all areas (social, religious, national, sex, and a mass of smaller almost military-like denominations) which ultimately causes war.

The "mirror principle" which you mention is extremely important; if something unpleasant happens to us, we can just retreat and cry and considers ourselves the victim. ON THE OTHER HAND, one can take a step backwards, take an objective view and say I WONDER WHY THIS HAPPENED TO ME AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME? We can analyze the situation. We are in a particular place at at a particlular time as a result of a lifetime of DECISIONS, LARGE AND SMALL, WHICH WE HAVE PERSONALLY MADE. So everything we encounter HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH OURSELVES.

An example of this from my own experience; a child comes running to me, crying, and I ask why. It is because an adult has turned her out of a comfortable lounge chair. I could say THERE THERE, IT DOES NOT MATTER. WOULD YOU LIKE SOME HOT CHOCOLATE?

Instead, I take the child to the adult, and I ask the adult why he did this. He said WELL, THERE IS NO POINT IN ASKING THE OTHER CHILDREN TO MOVE OUT OF THEIR CHAIRS, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THEY ARE TOO IMPOLITE AND WON'T DO IT. BUT THIS CHILD IS WELL-BEHAVED AND POLITE, AND I KNEW THAT SHE WOULD LET ME HAVE THE CHAIR AT THE END OF MY LONG WORKING DAY.

The other way the mirror principle works is in personal relationships. If we see that our partner is uncommunicative, the chances are that we are also being uncommunicative. How can one recognize something in another without being very familiar with that trait ourselves?

This principle is evident in other very simple examples. The moment you decide that you need some green gloves, for example, YOU WILL NOTICE EVERYONE WHO IS WEARING GREEN GLOVES. Possibly you will be surprised and say I NEVER THOUGHT THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE AROUND WEARING GREEN GLOVES! But this is not actually the case. What is really happening here is that our level of awareness for green gloves has increased.

Regarding the quote below about the philosopher's stone, this sounds like a sort of parable which describes the purification process. What is clear for me is that no amount of physical refined "powder" of any sort is going to help us increase our awareness, and thus our purification. No amount of drugs will help either. This is a mental process, continued over time, which involves personal effort only, and complete responsibility for self.

Thank you for your contribution AC.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE CHERISH BEAUTY


Do we cherish beauty 100% of the time? Or even 51% of the time? If we did, the scales would tip from chaos, torment and corruption into peace, abundance and harmony.

But what or who is beautiful? How often do we consider ourselves as important “pieces” in a beautiful global jigsaw? Are we aware that everyone has a starting point, and that everyone sets out on a journey, looking for similar pieces in order to “interlock” and form a composite and beautiful whole? Do we conceive of OURSELVES as part of the BEAUTY?

When we see THE OPPOSITE OF BEAUTY in the world around us, it is easy to become depressed. How can we counteract this feeling, and how we SIMULTANEOUSLY help the scales to tip? To cherish beauty we must CHERISH YOURSELVES, and the DIVINE PLAN. We must also cherish the POTENTIAL (however small) in everyone we meet, as well as in every flower and blade of grass. We should also cherish all mistakes, for they are the fastest route to learning. We should cherish also those who evoke our anger and awaken us to our real role, which is to be LOVE CRUSADERS.

THANK YOU so much for your appreciation, AC 72851436. It seems to you that this is a "marvel"; my thoughts on that are that this has been a long, developing process, based on my experiences, learning step by step.

It is the result also of increasingly trusting intuition, and also trusting the "little small voice" in my head which provides me with the visuals and the ideas. The words are the ones I choose, and are the way I can communicate the concepts, yet the concepts themselves are "received" from a higher instance.

Some people call that "the higher self". Sometimes also there are unseen guides helping us and providing information.

What I am really trying to say here is that if someone has the desire, THEN ANYONE CAN LEARN THIS, if they have a conscience and if they wish to improve themselves and make the world a better place for others to enjoy.

Thank you again for your comment. Love from Colour Crusader

Cheers OP you are a great inspiration :) I've taken the advice you given on one of your previous threads or maybe this one and have been going within and asking questions. The other day I was at work and it was a pretty stressful time (new job lots to take in and act upon) and so I calmed myself and asked what do I need to know now? I carried on working for a while and then went to the store cupboard to fetch a container to put some stuff in. I picked up an empty cocoa bucket which was fit for the job I was doing and as always I glanced inside it just to check it was clean. Straight away I noticed in the bottom where in had dried after being cleaned was an absolutely perfectly formed love heart. That answered my question and brought a big smile to my face :)
