The barriers between you and your greater good are not barriers in themselves. They are things of thought. It is because of this that all things are possible to faith. Jesus summed up the whole proposition when he said, "It is done unto you as you believe." In interpreting this saying, however, you must pause after the word as.
When was the last time you thought of yourself as a gift? (Have you ever?) Not the arrogant swagger of one who wants others to regard him/her as "God's gift to the world," but rather a humble recognition and acceptance of oneself as a divine creation and an instrument of Spirit.
Blessed holiday musings to you during the time of year when humanity resides within the one moment called Eternity. This past weekend millions and millions of hearts participated in a celebration of Awakening. It was a time when many quietly resided within their lives, within their own pleasures and within the great deep peace that flowed from their inner beingness. My holiday wish for you is that you gift yourself with the time and space to absorb all of the Divine Light structures that are making their way here this week because of that event.
We are intelligent beings living in an intelligent universe that responds to our mental states, and insofar as we learn to control those mental states, we shall automatically control our environment. This is what is meant by the practical application of the principles of Science of Mind to the problems of everyday living. This is what is meant by demonstration.
"There is a formula that goes like this: "Peace of Mind" comes when persons or a society are "centered." Centered-ness comes from certainty. Certainty comes from only one place: the recognition of patterns. So when a person or society has recognized a pattern as great as all of Creation, there is great certainty and centeredness and there is great Peace of Mind." - Ian Xel Lungold
As the summer here in North America begins to wind down I've been reflecting on the powerful current of transformation that is whipping through our lives right now. Are you feeling it? My goodness I have! Many of us are being asked to change in irrevocable and unprecedented ways. The message from the Universe seems to be, change is inevitable and it's choice or coercion, which would you like? I tend to dabble in a bit of both choosing and being coerced, how about you?
Living during this time in Earth's planetary history comes with a unique set of challenges. Learning how to increase your life force by returning to inner balance, while being exposed to the many external influences we interact with on a daily basis has the potential to rattle the best of us. It is crucial, however, during the amplified energetic cycles of 2012 not only to maintain, but to increase your "inner awareness" attention.
Are worries and nervous tension giving you a psychic headache that won't seem to dissipate? You may still be feeling the residual affects from the latest solar flare activity or you may be tuning into the energy of the turnaround of Mars [in Virgo] within the heavenly picture. This is the shift where the red planet halts its forward movement and begins doing back flips for the next 80 days or so. The week is also being amplified by last night's New Moon which coincidentally kicks off the Chinese lunar New Year of the Black Water Dragon today.
If you want more than you believe you can achieve, you're out of balance. And if where you are standing is less than what you want, you're out of balance. And so, you, individually, have to find your balance.
There is a phenomenon that is causing awakening Humanity to feel frustrated and powerless over the challenges surfacing to be healed in all of our lives at this time. When we awaken and begin to understand the power of our creative faculties of thought and feeling, we attempt to control our behavior patterns in order to improve our lives.
