Lead With Your Light Part 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the last post of this series we discussed the difference between longing and desire.

Longing has its focus on lack or what is missing. Like wishing, it places us in a position of limited possibility. What you focus on grows larger. Inside the web of longing, one tends to feel powerless to change their circumstance.

Desire is of the Father… it is the Formless Consciousness from which we create the life we choose. Desire is the stirring within your soul for All that tends toward Life. Desire is a place of Infinite Possibilities and Power! Inside desire lay the seeds of Wholeness and the key to the Authority of the Concious Co-Creator.

From the space of our God-Realized desire, we may  “Lead with our Light”!

Knowing, that everything you need lies inside the Kingdom within and is already in your possession, you are at peace!

We create, or uncover desire from becoming present to what it is we want in the deepest way possible. When you are ready to Lead With Your Light, you will seek:

  • Not the gift but the Giver
  • Not the thing…but the state of consciousness from which it arises

Life is consciousness. Life is spiritual not physical.

To the degree to which we can understand these basic Truths, we will create the life we want.

Remember that you already create the life that you choose consciously or unconsciously. Whether you live as a beggar or a monarch inside your Kingdom is up to you.

Do you desire joy, peace, wealth, luxury, security or opulence? No matter, they are all within you. Access your desire through your emotion! Feel the experience of joy, peace, wealth or whatever you desire.

Emotion = Energy in Motion

Many of us are used to the emotions of depression, lack, sadness and confusion. Expand your consciousness to include your natural state of Being. Feast on the feelings that tend toward Life!

“How do I do this?”, you may ask. Practice is the answer.

Proverbs 4:23 “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.”

As you shape your consciousness with your feelings of love, joy and gratitude you cannot fail to change your world!

In the next installment of this series we will discuss moving from “desire” to “conviction”.

LifeQuakes

Today is a day that will go down in history for those of us living on the East Coast. Many of us experienced our first earthquake. Yes, you heard me right! A 5.9 on the richter scale! It came without warning,  introductions or explanation.

I was on the phone with my sister when the rumbles began. It sounded like a freight train coming down the middle of my street. So foreign was the concept of “earthquake” to my experience, that I ran outside convinced that the source of the shaking must be something, anything but what it actually was. Mumbling to my sister, “I’ll call you right back”, I hung up the phone in a daze.  The earth stopped moving, but my mind was reeling in the aftermath of the sheer power of this experience!

There are words in a sacred text which declare “All that can be shaken will be shaken so that which cannot be moved will remain…”

Circumstances in life can appear suddenly with no apparent warning of which we are consciously aware shaking us to our core. Circumstances requiring our immediate and undivided attention which can leave us dazed, numb or paralyzed with fear wondering what just happened?

When the “aftershocks” have passed, at last we turn within to the business of rebuilding and putting ourselves and our lives back together. For those open to the gifts present in the hand of even the most adverse circumstances, something solidifies and creates a kind of fortitude that becomes immovable and unshakeable!

Consider the following text from Matthew 27: 51-53

51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

Metaphysically, quakes represents a “shift”.  A movement from one mindset to another,  a change from one course of action to another, a testing of stability and a separation of that which is temporal from that which is eternal. The old way of being, the graves, are opened and the mind is freed and resurrected. We are transformed and the veil of the illusion of separation between us and that which is Holy is rent in two.

The rocks of old core beliefs, behaviors and patterns… those things that no longer serve us are split and the sleeper awakens. Having been transformed, we seek to become vessels of transformation. We remember once again, humbled by the Power of our quake and empowered by its passing, that we are Conscious Co-Creators with God in our own lives. We remember that we are here to be about our Father’s business as citizens of the Holy City!

We appear unto ourselves as the Perfect, Whole and Light-filled beings that we truly are at our very core, no longer entangled by the seductions of our lives as something that we… and we alone control.

I close with a quote from the Tao:

Tao #16 ~ Cycles / Circles

 Empty your mind of thought
dwell in DivineUnity
being
Serenity

Watch the web of life
weave into existence
all that we observe
all moves within a circle
all life returns
to the roots in the soil

Source of serenity
absorbed in eternity
this is our destiny

Denial is catastrophe

Our lives are not circumscribed
we are not our bodies
Knowing the Tao
we release all fear
Being the Tao
We live forever…

Beloved know this when lifequakes come…

That which can be shaken has been created in order that what cannot be shaken may remain.

Don’t Lead with Your Need


“You must lay aside your greed; have no unworthy motive in your desire to become rich and powerful. It is legitimate and right to desire riches, if you want them for the sake of your soul, but not if you desire them for the lusts of the flesh.”
~Wallace D. Wattles Quotes from The Science of Being Great

In the month of May, I went through a Dark Night of the Soul. After my second year of lengthy unemployment, and some attempts at online marketing which were not yeilding the results I thought they should, I felt ready to throw up my hands.

Financially, I felt like I was drowning and needed someone to throw me a lifeline quick, fast and in a hurry! Spiritually, I knew that there was Infinite Supply. But when Pepco turned off my lights because I couldn’t pay the bill, I thought that someone oughta’ tell God that “Infinite Supply” wasn’t showing up in my bank account!

Suddenly, I was 9 years old again, hungry and hearing my mother crying about how little we had. My childhood taught me to believe strongly in “Not Enough”.  I had plenty of experience with lack and struggle around money. Now I was ready to choose a new experience!

I know now to ask each experience what it is here to teach me. I know that every experience, no matter how challenging, offers a gift if we have the courage to recieve it. Those experiences that have caused us to feel pain come up to be healed by us and to offer the opportunity of healing to us.

And so sitting in the darkness, I asked for healing and I let the learning begin.

As human beings we want to “control” our world and arrange our universe so that we can avoid pain and perceived suffering. Ironically, it is that need to control that causes most of the pain and suffering that we experience.

So when the lights came back on, my solution to not having that experience again was to get “busy”!  Busy looking for a traditional job which I told God I didn’t want anyway, then starting with an MLM, printing up business cards, setting up websites and other platforms to push product…the busy list was endless!

Part of my healing around the energy of money, was the divine opportunity to work one-on-one with Johanna Dolan, a Financial Coach. As we pull back the layers together, some very clear patterns have begun to emerge.  One of the major ones was the memory of “longing”.

Longing is defined as: “Strong, persistent craving, a yearning especially for something unattainable or distant.”  I knew “longing” now I wanted to learn how to “desire”. The word desire actually means… of the Father.  Desire is a strong feeling, worthy or unworthy, that impels to the attainment or possession of something that is (in reality or imagination) within reach: a desire for success.

Most of us confuse “Longing” and “Desire”. They are two very different things!

Longing = unattainable and out of reach.  It’s the carrot that the ego dangles in front of you on a constant basis.

Desire = attainable and within reach. Desires are of the Father and originate from Source.

Longing keeps the focus on what’s missing. Focusing on lack creates more lack. Inside longing, you operate from a place of “neediness” and you don’t truly believe that what you ask for is possible for you anyway. When you put this energy out into the world people feel it and you come across as inauthentic and self-serving.

Desire gives attention to that which you already possess whether or not it has become manifest in the tangible world yet. Inside desire you are present to every wonderful possibility! You know you already have what you have requested from the Father. Instead of “busyness” and struggle you feel an ease and a natural flow. Instead of leading with your need, you lead with your Light! When you put this energy out into the world, everything you create works! People respond readily to your love and authenticity! You create from a place of wholeness knowing that nothing is missing or lacking and that energy is returned to you in kind!

So in closing:

  •  Practice releasing resistance to your desires!
  • Let longing go!
  • Lead with your Light!

In our next post we will discuss how to create desire and build our capacity to allow desire to create a life we want!

What Keepin’ The Faith Really Means!

Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.
 – Rabindranath Tagore

Headlines are screaming about war and rumors of wars, you practically feel like you have to sign over your firstborn at the gas pump….and flooding, earthquakes and natural disasters are taking place all over the world.

Many are feeling some sense of pain, loss, confusion or at the very least…some trepidation about what’s next.

The fearmongerers are screaming loud and long…and gaining more support everyday.

The magnetic pull of the negative and panic-stricken collective consciousness bears heavy on the soul.

And so, I pose the question…what does keeping the faith really mean for us now?

In my humble opinion, it has to do with maintaining a place of balance, truth and sanctuary amidst the chaos and craziness created by the blaring of the media horns. 

It has to do with holding a space of sanity and peace for those who cannot or will not hold it for themselves.

Tao #26 has this to say about staying centered:

Heavy is the root of light
the faster we go,
we slow down time
standing still
we are the masters of speed

Thus the wise travel
all day without leaving their vehicles
the scenery is accepted
without undue excitement

My beloved friends, hold your course…stay on track! Be still and know God!

Be like a tree planted by the rivers of water and bring forth your fruit!

As the Psalmist said…”I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved .(Psalm 16:8 KJV).

Look not to the right hand nor to the left but remove your foot from evil. In this case, evil being everything that is unlike LOVE which cast out fear.

And my friends, not for nothing, are the Children of Light are also called “The Faithful”!

Another sacred text we know describes the essence of faith as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

You are anointed as WayShowers, Truthtellers, and Keepers of the Light!

Put on the whole armour of God and stand having done all to stand!

And I close with a quote from Robert Schuller, “Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.” 

The guidelines only ever point in one direction…”up”!

As above…so below!

Keep the faith my friends…keep the faith!
