A FEATHERED MESSENGER by Bryan Moss

A bird saved my life! Yes, you read this right. A tiny bird, like the size of a wren, saved my life. On a Thursday, after work, I was running an errand. The only parking spot from the store I was shopping at was a couple of blocks down from it. After parallel parking I was walking on the sidewalk and getting ready to cross a side street…. to continue walking towards my destination. At the edge of the curb of the street was a telephone pole’s shadow crossing the end of the sidewalk along that curb..Just as I was about to cross into the shadow and step off the curb, “Chirp!”, I noticed a tiny dark “blob” move from the side of the sidewalk towards me, coming from within the pole’s shadow. I stopped and noticed it was a wren. “Chirp” exclaimed the wren. She was looking up at me. Then she took a couple of more tiny steps and flew off. “WHOOSH!” A car had just then come from the main street’s side (my left) and took a fast, hard right turn cutting into the street curb I was about to walk off of!. Then it continued speeding on down that side street.
Then the realization hit me. If I hadn’t of stopped and noticed the “shadow” and heard her “Chirp!” I wouldn’t of stopped walking and probably would have been hit by that car!
I was, as they say, God smacked!!
As I reflect on this experience I’m very grateful for my fine feathered Friend/Angel. She taught/reminded this energy worker of a couple of things:

**Being Present…Reflecting on my spiritual journey there was a time when I would’ve blown off that “Chirp!” and kept walking as usual. Who knows? Maybe then I would’ve noticed the noise of that car and stopped and looked before stepping into the street? Maybe not. All I do know, on a first hand basis, is this time I noticed the “Chirp!” and looking below me was a tiny ball of a shadow within the larger shadow. Upon hearing the second “Chirp!” it registered that it was a bird, which eventually showed to be true as she walked into the sunlight. I gradually learned about the virtues of being present after I started meditating for a while. Then I found it gradually worked it’s way into other areas of my life.

**Be Supportive:…All life emanates energy and is interconnected one way or the other. Support one another, some way and some how. You don’t need a lot of money. Smile to someone as they cross paths with you. Pausing and allowing a car into the lane, even though it’s “ahead of you and then it’ll be in front of me”.

** Be Grateful Of EVERYTHING…My tactile senses seem to be more ‘sensitive’ since that day’s “saved by a bird”experience”. I’m on full ‘alert”, but not ‘alert’ in a fear based way. I guess I mean more heightened. A little hard to describe. So forgive me if I sound like a nut case.

All of these “messages” were delivered to me on my journey. Some would say God sent the little bird to save me. Others would say the bird was an angel in disguise watching over me. And yet others would comment how we’re all interconnected–trees, air, water, sky, animals, dirt, sand, flowers, grass, wind, fire, sun, moon, stars….and we’re all designed to be responsible and watch each other’s backs and be there for one another. Without prejudice, without judging, without ignoring one another. Regardless of our daily routine of distractions. Computers, cell phones, mirrors, social media, any kind of media, that tiny voice in our heads, traffic ALL have seeped into our lives slowly but surely. Becoming preoccupied in our “own” worlds we gradually loose any connection to anything alive, thus, we stop being present.
As an energy worker I view all energy as being in different levels/ways/forms (live’s experiences) while providing me the gift (lessons) of making choices. This is discernment on a whole different level.
Do I take the red pill or blue pill?
Do I blow off that piercing “Chirp!” and (without paying attention) keep walking into a speeding car?
I’m very humbled and grateful for these past hours of reflection. And humbly, I bow down to my fine feathered friend and say, “Thank you for the lessons!!”
Later gators,
Bryan

November Message of the Month – The Power of Love/”Prayer”/Combined Energy with Intent

by Shiela Reed

The regular theme for this month has been about Love – and the appearance of “different forms” – yet as we find the root of the intentions, the ones done with the “love” and of “trust – in divine right timing” with the collaboration of the two is what has been swirling around this month.  I wrote this earlier in the month and had not posted it and find today that it seems to fit with the “theme”…. so it is shared with you out of heartfelt gratitude and love as the message of the month.  I truly hope you have found your way through this month and find these words and the heart and love behind it, as the “cherry on top” for November….

I have and ALWAYS will believe in the power of “prayer”/good vibes/ love intended energy… whatever you want to call it… at the same time I am fully aware and also believe in “divine right timing”… so.. how does that fit together? Let me share a personal example….
Today (Nov 11 2018) my very elderly dog, Bosco, who has been with me through MUCH in life.. good and really not good… 16+ years worth at this point mind you… he is my “soulmate dog”.
Well, he woke up and had a new “issue”… his back right hip went out just while walking across the floor. To sum this up, here are his “issues”: separation anxiety most of his life (he is a rescue dog and has been with me since age 1 – our life together is yet another story 😊)
heart failure (meds since age 12),
Chronic Dislocated back left knee
And today this…

I share this to also create a story for you… I full well know and realize he will not be with me forever. Which is true of anyone or anything, ourselves included. So, while we KNOW this, I myself continue to be amazed at how I can still get so “off center”, that I am not present for today’s joy’s in my current life and become so enveloped with fear. Yet, embracing and then releasing the pains of the future that tend to so easily trap me in fear and worry is not as easy as “a wish, or desire, or words”… even knowing “nothing here we try to hold, is forever”… it takes that regular and frequent checking within, re-centering, re-grounding, and “catching it” before it goes into a “loop”…

I was already in a loop from the previous week, which was already added on to by the previous week… and I “knew” I had some things to “tend to”, but I chose to “put it aside”, wait, do it differently, I really don’t know.. except my inner me told me to address it back then, and I didn’t. My ego/mind latched on to the “fears” and away we went with story after story of “what if’s”…

So flash forward to today and this event…

I was in tears, I feared the worst, even knowing “if it’s time, it’s time, there is nothing I can do about it”… I did my best to allow myself to feel the fear, say it out-loud, let it fly into the wind, and accept what was to be, without having to “know it” right now. Of course I found myself wanting to “control”.. but what this situation did do was force a shift on me that desperately needed to be released…so, as it started to “unfold”, I felt my heart reference point say “let go of the pain”… this one situation is NOT what this is all about….
I then knew from my heart that my intentions for asking friends and loved ones for “prayers/good vibes” was to request the energetic support for me and Bosco to go through WHATEVER was to be next…
That is exactly what I believe these “requests” are about. A true self asking other true selves for “support” in a time of need… even when asking for something specific, our inner selves already are connected to the Divine and knows what we need… the mind just wants to be involved… so, even though we “pray” for healing and may mentally have an opinion about what that looks like, deep within, when we truly trust and have faith… we know whatever comes, is simply meant to be. We just may not be able to see the type of “healing” that we actually “really” need.

So, as I let go, and allowed for whatever support came forward to come to me and Bosco… I was able to release the majority of the previous several weeks worth of “stuff” and be in a place I needed to be, so I could lovingly be present in this important moment for me, my current situation and my honored relationship with my sweet furry companion.

As we went to the vet, Bosco was calm, and I knew within it was all “ok”.. whatever that ended up looking like, didn’t matter as much anymore. I surrendered… today, the news was not catastrophic, there were options, possible solutions, and while that made my mind stay on the background, I felt in my heart, the whole event was needed for healing… not just in Bosco…

And with that, I find great humbleness and gratitude in the power of “prayer”… I was not “alone”, the “energy field” of lovingness and truth was all around, and I felt safe to be present in my space, in each moment, with him and each situation the rest of the day.
Thank you friends for “holding space” for us today… know I will always intend to do the same for you.
Much love
Shiela

WHY THE HEART’S PATH?? by Bryan Moss

When sharing with others that I co-created a website called The Heart’s Path I’m often asked how the name came about. Instead of giving a “new agey” kind of explanation with a lot of “Peace..Love..Doves…” I thought I’d give a more 3d, scientific based answer to support that thinking/acting from our Hearts is the true path.
Conventional scientific data shows us the average adult heart beats over 100,000 time as day. Doing so, it circulates approx. 2,000 gallons of blood throughout 60,000 miles of veins, arteries and other blood vessels. In recent years, science has shown that pumping blood may not be our heart’s main purpose. While mainstream science has always regarded the brain as being the master, throughout the ages ancient traditions regarded the heart as the true master organ of emotion, thought, personality, and then some.
In the early 1990’s a scientific discovery was reported and published in the journal NEUROCARDIOLOGY. While studying the relationship between the heart and brain scientists discovered about 40,000 sensory neurites (specialized neurons) that formed a communication network within the heart itself. These 40,000 neurites are in addition to the neurons that exist in the brain, along the spinal cord, as well as other smaller organs. This illustrates the profound communication that exists within the human body. The scientists came to regard the heart as the ‘little brain’.
As mentioned before, the relationship of the heart within the human has been described in the scrolls and scriptures of some of the most ancient spiritual traditions. The role of the heart is realized to have heart-based wisdom known as heart-intelligence, intentional self-healing, access to super learning abilities, precognitive abilities, independent communication with other organs, and more.
They discovered the heart’s little brain can work in harmony with the cranial brain AND can work independently of the cranial brain to learn, think, recall, and even sense our inner and outer worlds on its own! This entirely makes sense as an energy worker because I’ve experienced how our cranial brain (ego/logic) can’t comprehend anything outside of its own realm. Where as the Heart (love) has no limits and has no problem accepting anything the way it is because it comes from no judgement and acknowledges the divinity and beauty in all things/experiences. Again, our cranial’s brain has limits. The Heart’s brain is limitless.
The game changer is the resonance of energy between the two. The cranial’s brain would love to keep us in its world of struggles and confusion and ‘superiority’. All low vibratory resonances and yet, no comparison to the Heart’s brain functions coming from the higher vibratory resonances of unconditional Love and Grace.
I find that these scientific discoveries definitely support the saying, “Coming from the heart…..”. When making choices in life listening to our intuition (feeling with our Heart) can bypass all of the mumbo jumbo brain noise in the head and can be considerably more accurate. So when it’s time to react in any given situation, instead of going on auto-pilot from logic, taking a pause, and thinking about how I would react if I came from the loving space of my Heart is proving to be more effective along my spiritual journey. At first it takes practice to retrain myself from taking knee jerk reactions/thoughts from my cranial’s brain. But slowly and surely I’m getting the hang of it and the rewards from asking my Heart what to do are limitless, and thus, taking me along “The Heart’s Path”..Peace you Beautiful Souls.

 

 

October Message of the Month – One Thing at a Time

by Shiela Reed

One thing at a time. Slow your breathing and you’ll slow your mind, then everything else will follow. Take your time. It is all OK as it is.

It is so hard to slow down and focus on one thing at a time. I often find myself racing from one thing to another without being consciously present in any of it!  This is actually detrimental to any progress and a misguided notion that we “should do more”… for example, I am a firm believer that multi-tasking is a myth and has misguided MANY of us! As we become more and more separated and distracted from being fully present in a moment or task, we ultimately find we aren’t really being “good” at any one thing at all!

As I’ve become more aware of this, I have found this is a root of much of my anxiousness. I actually feel better and in tune with my inner voice when I pay attention to this “signal” and remind myself to slow down. Lately this has been extra intensified and with all the energetic shifting going on around all of us, I know I am not the only one.

For example, right now I feel a strong need to “de-clutter” more. But letting go of things feels difficult. I know this is a sign that I have some work to do in this area. I’ve tried a little at a time by focusing on one area or theme. i.e. clothes, stored items.. things where I KNOW I have things that can “go” and I won’t “die” if I actually DO get rid of them, (haha) but you know, I still only end up being able to ditch a few things! What the heck?! I can actually FEEL the anxiety underneath, the “fear” of “what IF” I need this “someday”?! Another “thought” is about how the item reminds me of something, someone, or an event/time.. and I worry I will “forget” the memory.   I take a next step and wonder WHY is this coming in like this?  What is the REAL reason I am holding on?..
Knowing from my inner heart space that this is necessary for me to “make room” for anything new, why is it still so hard? I also know that it pulls me into the past, which intuitively I know can serve a purpose, (understand and learn from the past type of thing) but can becomes a problem when I can’t “hear” or “see” a flexible future. Instead I feel limited or restricted. Those are signs that I’m not in the moment or trusting my heart. Instead there is an overlay of a fear of something…

So I keep going back to “one thing at a time”, over and over and over. Resetting myself… starting by just realizing it and then trying to just focus on the moment and asking myself if this (item, situation, person, feeling) is important for me or to my “best/ true inner self “.
Sometimes it is, and is clearly only “for now”, sometimes it is not, but I have to acknowledge there is something deeper going on if I cannot “let it go”.   Either way, it is important to not get caught here and thus not be able to move on, one way or the other.

Therefore, right now, all I’m able to do with those moments, is to practice another form of “one thing at a time” and realize that some things I’m just not ready to deal with, so I set it aside and work on NOT getting caught up in a mental loop about it.

It’s been such a theme this month that it has felt important to share. If for no other reason but to say “hang in there”. “One foot in front of the other”. “One thing at a time”. And I’m discovering that it doesn’t mean that each “thing” always gets “done”. Sometimes, it’s just being in the moment of whatever is going on, and then moving on to a next moment while accepting that becoming overly “obsessed” about finishing something, is probably going to end up counter productive.

So join me and pick one “focus” at a time and take it easy… Enjoy, appreciate, and fill it with love.
After all, it is what will provide us the support and solid base for all things that will come to us in our future.

Many blessings
Shiela

September message of the month – Hold On and Let Go

by Shiela Reed

Hold on and Let go – has been a theme for me this whole month it seems.  Each moment and experience in all areas of my life keep pointing out that we are always doing one or the other and sometimes both at once.

Oddly enough (or maybe not so odd by now 😉 , it seems to be the most prevalent times I can see it this way is when I’m centered and grounded and still in my own heart space.

I know it seems a little bit of a broken record, but it truly is the “make it or break it” pivotal zone in all we are… without it – we can never really be sure and trust that we are headed down our true path, because choices end up at the whim of our ego mind.

So as we have already moved through this month somehow!.. There is a new energy shift coming into October and one of my mentors through TransCODES shares some great information about this and it’s worth taking note, specifically  the following from  http://www.transcodes.com/blog/4592588517/22nd-28th-September-2018-Collective-Energies-Tips-(Week-39)-Equinox—Ready-Or-Not/11328430

“ETHERIC BUZZ ALERT from 25th September 2018: *** ETHERIC BUZZ ALERT *** Incoming Energies (Equinox, Full Moon and #OctoberRevolutionEnergies) overwhelming for empaths atm. Don’t beat yourself up for being tired or low-balling. Give yourself space and RELEASE ALL EMOTIONS #eyeofthestorm #bifurcation #collectiveenergies”

This is especially if you are already aware of being extra sensitive to energies around you.  It’s a very important time to be able to tap into your inner guidance and know when to “hold on or let go or do both”.  This shift will be occurring regardless of if we are “ready or not”, so being able to do this in the coming months in a way that is true to each of us, will likely mean we need to spend extra time grounding, lightly reflecting, letting go, and ultimately allowing our process and journey to unfold.  Oh, and also doing this over and over again and moment to moment sometimes. 🙂

We do not need to be passive during this, instead there is a need to be actively engaged and connected – but within our inner space where our “real us” is already communicating with our divine light.  This is our “true”…

So as we all contemplate the holding on, letting go, and yin/yang of it all – remember to be present in each moment  – allow yourself space to grow and heal and be open to trust in the unfolding while you continue to participate in the journey.

See you in October!

Much love and blessings

LETTING GO AND SURRENDER by Bryan Moss

 Every now and then I find myself reflecting on experiences in the past which helped me grow on my journey. I was thinking about how much us humanoids have a tendency to accumulate things. Thus, the “need” to have something. Some say you can’t get enough land, others collect knick knacks from buttons to automobiles, and yet some people do anything to acquire more money in any way, shape, or form. What are they looking for? Security? Safety?
 Over a year ago a MRI discovered “something” in my colon. Around 45 minutes after the MRI, in the time it took me to drive back to work and be working for a little while, a nurse calls me on my cell phone requesting me to see the doctor ASAP after seeing the MRI scan. (GULP!) I drop everything and GO!
 During the next thirty minutes or so it seemed like all of my past experiences, in this life time, flashed before my eyeballs. Every situation, person, object, possessions..I mean everything. Any grudges I still have (like with my brother since the spring of 2016), the extra, unused clothes in my closet, my ‘favorite’ knick knacks, some of my cherished wood carvings/sculptures, the rude coworker I put up with, my wallet, how recent is my cell phone, my books, my plants….all of these ‘meaningful’ things/situations/objects turned into blah, blah, blah….POOF! Instantaneously, they had no meaning at all. What became important for me was Self<–>Love. And not in an egotistical way. Self Love as in accepting and being grateful for the opportunity to be who I am. A loving child of Source.
 I AM THAT I AM.
 Within thirty minutes, between leaving work, driving, and the doctor entering the room– I had Let Go of the 3D world. All of the ‘importance’ of anything and everything didn’t mean anything to me anymore. Experiencing and Feeling Love was the center of my being.
 Thirty minutes later the doctor walks into the exam room and pulls up the MRI results onto the screen. “This is an infection”, stated the doctor, “and we’re afraid it could turn into colitis. I’ll give you antibiotics to take for it for the next 10 days. You should schedule a colonoscopy ASAP.”
  I didn’t come out of that exam room bummed out and beating myself up over the symptoms. Instead, I knew from my energy training and feeling that in allowing Self Love, I was safe and could get this handled. The doctor said the MRI Tech made a comment that he was surprised I noticed the infection going on in my colon when the infection was in it’s very early stages. I attribute that to all of the self management energy training I’ve been partaking in since March of 2016. Six weeks later (the earliest available time I could get a colonoscopy scheduled) the test results were clean as a whistle.
 “See you in another ten years”‘ said the doctor.
 It’s those last five minutes of that thirty minute travel period I recall the feelings of—-importance morphing into unimportance, neediness morphing into neutrality, which morphed into allowing myself to feel LOVE increasing the more I Let Go and Surrendered every/anything. I felt light as a feather (even lighter, if possible) by the time I parked in the underground structure, took the elevator to the 2nd floor, and viewed the MRI’s results. And I discovered waves of compassion filling my Heart for Everything. I totally let go and gave everything to Source. All of the material 3D stuff didn’t matter. Nothing. Compassion filled my 4th chakra. And all of this beauty from within my Heart. Not just thinking about it all, but Feeling everything.
  Thank you for letting me share.
Humbly yours,
 Bryan

A Labor Day message

Thoughts on Labor Day – America is already pretty great

by Shiela Reed

Despite our mistakes (for which we continue to learn) America is already great… (thanks John McCain for reminding us of this)

As I personally reflected on the funeral services of Senator McCain, I was reminded of a belief I have always carried deep in my heart. We must truly LOVE at our core, to be able to grow through hard times. I must love myself, despite my short comings and be willing to grow,  while along the way I need to feel HOPE for what lies ahead. When we are in that kind of “divine space”, we naturally can show this same graciousness to others. This is true of my own journey as well as the path of my country/nation.

We have MUCH to be thankful for and much to continue to learn and grow from. When we choose to focus on how far we have come by accepting and acknowledging our “mistakes”, misguided choices, and need to “remember” ALONG WITH having goals, visions for “better”, and HOPE for the future, we can be united.
If we choose to focus ONLY on the mistakes or how far we still have to go or have a desire to “erase” our history, we will tend to be divided.

It is much like our own individual energetic work, if we become stuck in the past, we will tend to be “depressed” as we lament over “what could have or should have been”.   It’s an ego illusion and trap.   Just as if we become so focused on the future there is a tendency to become overly anxious, nervous and fearful. Another ego trap…  both of which cause us to miss opportunities we have today.  

As with anything, there is a need for balance of the two. We cannot have a “peaceful” life of our own if we do not find our way to our hearts center and allow for the two to become one… yes, we want memories and we want to “learn” from our past. We would not want to ignore or “erase” those realities nor do we want to become “stuck” there as if they were the “best of days” only – otherwise we limit and stifle what comes next and the possibilities of “newness” in our future.  At the same token, we evoke fear if we only worry about the future and thus try so hard to “control” everything in it’s pursuit.

Maybe instead of always pointing out the “bad”, the mean, the hate… we could focus more on the “good”, the kindness, and the love that is all around us. Again, yes, it may not be “wise” to ignore an obvious “negative” situation and to “defeat” it and decrease the growth of it, for which the “light” may need to be shined upon it by “calling it out”… but it is THE WAY in which it is done and from where WE individually CHOOSE to do it… the spirit of our intentions is what will guide the growth of the outcome.

If it is out of love, then even the firmest of stances are heard and felt differently than of it is from an ego illusion based place of fear, hate, and/or judgement.

So on this US holiday for which we tend to reflect as both a nation and as individuals, I share my own hope that we all are able to be “open” enough to hear our hearts and share a deeper level of love that embraces commonality rather than division.  We can be firm in our ” heart based boundaries” with love and kindness. We can very much coexist even with differences.. after all, that is what makes us truly humbly grateful within ourselves and ultimately great together.

Peace, love, and blessings to all

August message of the month – Embrace the Journey –

By Shiela Reed

Sometimes looking around and appreciating where we have come from is more important than being “right” in a debate or discussion. Whether with ourselves or others, what if instead of being aggravated or “disappointed” or angry, we were appreciative, humbled, and excited about how far we have come in our life? Whether leaps and bounds or tiny steps – it doesn’t really even matter the “direction”… our labeling and judgement about it is what gets us side tracked and we end up missing the true point in our journey.

While we are here to grow and learn and have a physical experience in our humanness and there is individuality in that, we also are part of a larger collective (society, communities, etc.) that very much impacts our world.
I often think about my own experiences and the impacts they have had on my journey and find even the hardest of them I have found appreciation for. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to see the growth we gain from the difficulties we encounter.

Similarly when we can appreciate the same flow of nature and our world… acknowledging that without rain, there is no growth or life. Without some natural “destruction” there is no “rebuilding” (i.e. fires, hurricanes, tornadoes). The earth system naturally will “rebalance” and it’s not about the “good or bad” of it.
It’s what ends up happening “with it” and after it that counts. Which way will it go? What is the overall reaction?

Nature and Earth – Gaia – will “balance” out. Our own energetic reactions is part of it all as well… if we (individually and/or collectively) react in extreme ways, there will be counter reactions from elsewhere too. It’s as if what we “create” gets “fed” and grows… panic, worry, fear, hostility… just as will safety, peace, comfort, and love. As we go through our own individual journeys and find our ways to become “balanced” (which is that ebb and flow of all the emotions in a closer, smoother and “truer” to our heart center) we can find a sense of peace here.

We will naturally know this state of being… it’s from where we came… embracing the journey through it all is when we can find peace and acceptance in allowing ourselves and others to truly be in harmony, despite our different paths.

As “kumbaya” as this all sounds, the realities of the facts are, not everyone will see it this way, and their journey may appear to be in conflict with our own. Take note and make your own boundaries as respectfully as can be done, and determine your own choices and own them.
At the end of it all, YOU are responsible for YOU and where your journey has been and where it is headed, all based on your moment by moment choices each day.

So, I hope you deeply embrace your journey from your heart, are open to the acceptance of your past by releasing all judgement, and gain exitment in allowing for your future to unfold without fear or restriction.
Much love and blessings

Compassion before Judgement

by Shiela Reed

Think before speaking.. sounds like it should be easy right?

Well, not always…  when tragedy strikes everyone tends to be so quick to jump to conclusions. Everyone has opinions, but that’s all they are, they rarely have all the information, yet they pass it around like they have all the answers and know it all or have always made correct and perfect decisions themselves.

Why does everyone have to pass judgement so quickly when there is always more to a story? It’s sad that all the opinions and rhetoric rarely ends up changing anything. In actuality we end up spending so much more time crushing, demoralizing, and knocking people down rather supporting and building each other up.   Where is the compassion for a fellow lost sole?  Or for ALL involved, even the ones we classify as being “their fault”?

As an energetic empath/sensitive these days I am actually more saddened and effected by HOW people are treating each rather than the events and disasters that occur. It’s interesting how easy it is to accept the sadness when there doesn’t appear to be anyone to blame. (i.e. natural disaster) But in reality, we tend to dig really hard to find SOMEONE to blame and condemn.

Is this a part of the human condition that we can never escape from? Are we “destined” to live in hate, fear, and judgement? Honestly I don’t think everyone is. There are plenty of people trying hard to NOT live like that because they don’t want to. But sometimes it’s overwhelming so it seems easier to hide and be silent. No, there isn’t really a reason to “shout from the roof top” that hey look “I AM RIGHT”!   It’s pointless if it ends up feeding a fight or battle or debate that has no end. Everyone chooses. The end…

So share a different view point, stance, or “opinion” in a loving, kind, genuine way, WITHOUT an outcome expectation that the “masses will see it my way” because THAT is when you are most likely sharing from your heart and likely to be heard…

I tell ya, I wish it didn’t seem so hard to “live in peace” all the time, but I recently heard a good reminder about how without the differences (in thoughts and opinions in this case) that everything would already be construed as “perfect” because it would all be the same.

Thinking on that puts it in perspective – because depending on the group you are part of, their definitions seem “perfect” to them and they want others to be like or with them… so it’s great when we think and act alike, and agree but we just don’t seem to know how to handle it when we don’t.

Although this too is just “an opinion”, one of which you may or may not “agree” with, it’s hoped that it sparks additional thought in your mind because in the end, one of the best things we can do is quiet our mouths long enough to listen and hear and contemplate about other possibilities before we jump to our own and assuming it as the “only way” or “right” one.

For me, this is one of the best parts of writing… it forces me to slow down, think about my words, and what I’m really trying say from my heart.  So, take your time… with yourself and others before putting something “out there” that you can’t take back.

I hope for compassion without judgement for us all.
Blessings and peace

Shiela

It’s ALL Backwards by Bryan Moss

 

 Concerning 3D life in general, everything’s backwards.
                        COLLECTIVE SOCIETY / THE MAJORITY:
 We’re raised to believe ‘blood is thicker than water’, ‘put your loved ones before yourself’, ‘only professionals can help you’, ‘plan every step into the future, that’s the only way to succeed’, ‘you need to force your way to get results’, ‘life’s goal is enlightenment’, ‘the powers to be have your best interest in mind’, ‘don’t reflect on the past, just move ahead’, ‘showing anger and sadness isn’t being spiritual’, ‘standing your own ground is being selfish’, ‘worry about what others think of you’, ‘war and violence is part of being human’, ‘your “higher power” is only “out there” somewhere’, ‘you have to prove yourself “worthy” to be loved by your “higher power”, ‘only others can give you approval’, ‘meditation is for yogas and monks’, ‘go with the crowd’, ‘ignore your past’, ‘agree to do everything’, ‘you need to figure it out’, ‘an eye for an eye is the only justice there is’, ‘everybody is out to get you’……
                      THE AWAKENED WARRIOR:
 …realizes taking care of one’s needs first, so she/he has a balanced life, is a good solid base to start with. If you put others before yourself, energetically you risk falling apart physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually because you’re all ‘spent’. Then what good are you for them, or for yourself, to begin with?  Taking time to consolidate one’s energy is the first step on one’s journey. Once that foundation is established you can then decide whom to help when and where.
 The A.W. (Awakened Warrior) has learned expending his/her energy on ‘planning ahead’ and ‘mapping out every single step’ is wasted energy. The A.W. welcomes the journey of the unknown. Knowing that life is energy in different forms and it’s always changing, the A.W. embraces the unknown knowing it is useless to try to control any outcome.
 The A.W. realizes the force that created her/him is the same force within their Hearts, thus not having to give away any power and energy to anyone or thing ‘out there’. They know that any answer required is always carried within the divinity of the Heart.
 The A.W. walks in humbleness and gratefulness knowing any power required resides within the Heart’s loving chambers. Coming from there, the A.W. is never ashamed, guilty, or afraid to shed a tear in sadness or joy. Being able to express the Truth, when it is felt that Truth needs to be expressed, becomes a habit.
 The Awakened Warrior recognizes the loving soul in everyone, no matter how f____d up they may appear to be.
 The A.W. knows that “everything is perfect the way it is” and doesn’t have to use force of any type, for the power and wisdom of the Creator’s Heart is boundless and patient.
 The A.W. realizes it isn’t about going on the journey to achieve anything (hello? does that new agey word<cough> ‘enlightenment’ ring a bell?).
 The goal ISN’T enlightenment. The goal IS the journey.
 The A.W. learns to transmute any hurt and pain into lessons of wisdom. That being said, the A.W. embraces looking into the childhood years in order to reframe those experiences, as needed, to continue to grow on the journey. For she/he knows that to ignore those childhood experiences will only continue to bring more pain in the future and prevent any further spiritual growth. The A.W. knows not to be hard on her/his self as they realize any misgivings unto others, or one’s self, they created in the past.
 The Awakened Warrior has learned that the key to true love and knowledge is meditating, feeling, and enacting from her/his Heart. When the crowd panics and starts to run, the A.W. BREATHES, remains CALM, and quietly walks the other way. Nothing to fear. Nothing to hide. Choice and actions from the Heart are effortless and clear.
The Awakened Warrior’s true sword is her/his Heart. The A.W.’s true power is stillness and reflection.
 The CON JOB: As we grow up, we’re programmed to think like the Majority/Collective Society (Matrix) via their political, economical, religious and electronic programming. It’s all designed to let us be taken care of by ‘them’. You’re expected to ask no questions. You’re expected to rely on others and slowly give away any responsibility you were created to enjoy. And before you know it you have given up any power you could of claimed your own.
 PAY ATTENTION: The Awakened Warrior comes to realize if your interested in being truly free:
 EVERYTHING Is Backwards. Think about it.
