I have seen far too many times than I’d like to recount the abuse and misuse we place upon ourselves. We can give love, attention and kindness to others but fail to give it to ourselves. Becoming unbalanced we drain ourselves and can’t seem to find any reasons as to why. Generational curses and religion bind us with thoughts of who we shouldbe and what needs to be done in order to be sinless. That sounds like pressure and God’s yoke is easyand burdens lightso what are we missing? The truth is this, to sin is to miss the mark of unconditional love, period. Unconditional love isn’t earned, it’s simply given. Yet, conditional love is how we’ve been taught to love others as well as ourselves. We all have done this so there isn’t any blame at all. We teach what we learn. It’s time that we retrain and teach in a different way. Do you agree?

To sin, means what exactly? How much do we really know? According to Wikipedia, sin is an act of transgression (sin, trespass, violation, wrongdoing) against divine or natural law. Sin can also be viewed as any thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between an individual and God; or as any diversion from the perceived ideal order for human living. So, if sin is an act of transgression against divine or natural law – what is divine or natural law? Webster’s Dictionary stated natural law is: a body of law or a specific principle held to be derived from nature and binding upon human society in the absence of or in addition to positive law and divine definition is this: of, relating to, or proceeding directly from God. To miss the mark is to see division and inequity. To miss the mark means to judge according to the limited mental knowledge we consume. There is only one consciousness that knows all and sees all, the master of the Universe, God; only God can judge.  

What is the definition of love?  Biblically -1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version (NIV) states:Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And, according to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, love: strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties maternal love for a child. We claim love is unconditional, but all the conditions are artifacts we use, when giving love. Condition is all we seem to live by, all we seem to know. 

Do we love in an unconditional manner, or do we condemn and hate the unfavorable? The unfavorable can even be us, after all the worse condemnation is condemnation of self. We cannot change the world unless we first change ourselves. Changing the misconception requiresallto be healed, not just a few. We are here to learn that unconditionalis the only way to love. Limitless, pure potentiality at its best is love. Harming oneself and another by placing boundaries on the level of love being given, based on their circumstances and learnedbehavior; how is it that we claim to love in this way? 

To sin: is to notsee yourself and others how God perceives you, perfect. To be sinless: walk in acceptance and love. To be sinless: embrace who you are, flaws and all. To be sinless: avoidance of comparison; you are you, embrace, don’t reject that fact. To be sinless: is to see love in another, through the awareness in you

1 John 4:18 states: There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.When we are fearful or doubtful, we are not walking in love; but in disapproval of ourselves. This disapproval bleeds into our relationships, finances and so on. Fear wreaks havoc on our lives and will take over if we aren’t aware of what’s true for us. The bible states God’s people parish from lack of wisdom and this is because we have taken on the beliefs of the world as opposed to staying close to the spirit who lives in us. The mind is filled with hogwash from eons ago and we base our lives on the intelligence of our minds. When we do this, we turn away from our spirit. If we decide to live through our mental conditioned self (ego) instead of who we are internally (spirit) we become divided. Division leads to ruin. Ruin leads to death. 

We were not to become like the world but be lights of the world, by being transformed and renewed through the retraining of our minds. The bible instructs us to be diligent in retraining our minds to not adapt the societal divisions of the world. In Romans 12:2 we are told not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.We fear the unknown based on limiting beliefs of the world. This isn’t love. Fear and love cannot coexist. Fear harms, love heals and restores. Fear divides, love conquers all. Let me be clear, our way of doing things based on mental concepts or conditioning alone, will neverwork in leading us to our destiny. We must be present and aligned in order for limitless pure potentiality to flow within us. 

But how do we usually practice love? I don’t know about you but here’s what I see: Conditional love given when things go how we thinkthey should. Usually we love ourselves when our life is in order, just how we like it. Otherwise, we beat ourselves up, feel guilty and wonder what we are doing wrong. We compare ourselves and our lives to everyone else. We then push ourselves to go the extra mile, hoping someone would notice. Simply put, we look for gratification and love in others. We love our spouse when they take the time to give us the attention we crave; otherwise we complain and withdrawal, we might even be mean. We openly love and praise our children when they are making straight A’s and enjoying extra circular activities; otherwise we continuously let our disappointments be known; compare and punish for falling short of what we expect them to be. We are courteous and respectful to the CEO, nevertheless the Janitor can’t even get a hello. We praise the rich, look down on the poor. And finally, we walk around with fake smiles and shattered hearts, not knowing how to mend it at all. We have been hurt. We have become broken pieces of what love is supposed to be. Sounds like loving based on condition to me. 

How are we loving and complaining at the same time? We are not. How are we loving and angry at the same time? We are not. How are we loving, yet condemning, placing blame and pointing fingers? We are not. We are either choosing to love or we are feeding the conditioned picture of division and condemnation, which is simply serving the dysfunction of this world. Anything divided will not and cannot stand. If we are complaining based on falling short of the perfection, we think we should be living up to we aren’t loving ourselves; this is beating ourselves up unnecessarily. 

We are on a journey in this life and we will get to our destined place, if we know and practice the truth that sets us free. There isn’t any love in condemnation. To love is to be free. To love is to allow. To love is to grow. To love is to nurture. To love is to embrace the newness of what can be. To love is to love yourself and others exactly as we are, expressions of love. Love isn’t based on habituated illusions of what we think shouldbe.  

We know in order to receive, we must give first. If we aren’t giving love and acceptance to ourselves, how will we continue to grow? Voids that won’t go away is a sure sign that love needs to be replenished on the inside. If the love we see is limited to outside sources, does that mean love can only be conquered through something or someone else? Think about that for a second. The storm and the calm can only be felt first, within. So, in other words anything that rest outside of you can never fill the emptiness that’s felt within you. But on the contrary, once the emptiness has been filled on the inside, outside desires begin to come into fruition, automatically.  

Fall in love with the essence of life. Fall in love with the beauty in, through and around you. Begin to wake up and feel life, in totality again. Fall in love, in spite of. Make a choice to walk in love. Fall in love with the being that is, you. Far too many times than not, we see love and joy in everything but ourselves. But, how is this so? How can we see in others, what we refuse to see in ourselves? If in fact we areable to perceive greatness in others, doesn’t that mean, what we see in others, is also in ourselves. Love is unconditional. Love is you. 

 

Detach from all expectancy. Allow people to be who they are. Every individual is on their own path of evolution.

When we allow ourselves and other people to freely be themselves while offering acceptance of individuals or circumstances; We do one of the two: 1. Grow in love.  2. Separate in love.

When we decide to grow together in love, relationships and circumstances bring the best out of us, not the worst. Growing in love, we realize there is a continual effort to build one another as well as the relationship. All parties are aware of this and equally participate in the growth of themselves, their relationships and others. There is lightness of flow, happiness that stems from the heart and a willingness to give without expectancy. The relationships provide peace, harmony and unity. The choice to walk in love has been made the key priority.

When we decide to separate in love, we acknowledge the fact that we are not good for one another. The situations or circumstances breed anxiety and fear. The relationship does not promote growth or embody love. There is constant discord and the unwillingness to compromise beyond oneself. Criticism, attack and blame seem constant. However, we don’t judge ourselves or the other parties involved. There is no blame necessary, as we have all played our parts.  The good. The bad. The ugly. We are aware and simply decide we are better off apart, well wishes given. No malice, hatred or bitterness felt. We separate in love, while allowing true fruitfulness of love to take form for others and ourselves.

Awareness of either choice is key. Remember there’s always an effortless flow to what’s supposed to be. In order to allow that flow, you’ve got to move yourself out the way and allow our Creator to dictate what relationships and or circumstances come and go for us. When we allow, we then enable freedom that offers a detachment to the outcomes we have formed for ourselves within. We then no longer feel the need to dictate or control how things take place or unfold outside of us. We simply allow and place our entire expectancy on our Creator, never on a circumstance or an individual.

Decide to make the choice to remain aware our own internal compass, our own continual growth. Decide to allow things to take shape naturally. Decide to drop feelings of animosity, blame and bitterness. As all these emotions come from an unwillingness of acceptance, to what we think or how we feel things should have been. When we attempt to control the outcome of circumstances or relationships we imprison ourselves emotionally and mentally.

    Let go. Be fee. Allow others to do the same damn thing. Repeat! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do I not take offense when I am filled with words, actions and thoughts from the past? How do I learn to love, when the life I have lived, so full of abandonment, addictions and at times even hatred from those who claim to love and support me throughout my existence? What was the meaning of the experiences after all? To avoid love or live in pain either choice is one in the same.

How do I continue to do what’s right – I’ve been taught that life is supposed to be a fight. Now I see I have been misguided, entirely. God said his yoke was easy to carry, burdens light. So why do I feel as though I need to fight? I don’t actually. There aren’t any fights other then the wars created within me, stemming from negative thoughts I have decided to carry.  If I simply let it all go would there be any controversy, it simply would not be.

How and why do I fight to remain in control, control of everything outside of me? I realize this type of thinking is pure insanity. We are to work on things we can change; allow the rest to take form and be shaped by life’s universal energy. So what can I actually control? I can control me! I decide to take control by deciding not to focus on or judge things that’s happening outside of me, but instead do my part to transform my current version of reality. But how to do that is the key and that is to begin by transforming thoughts of fear, anger and hatred to acceptance, freedom and genuine trust in my creator.

I am aware that this type of trust that I speak of can only come from my spirit, my heart. I can control my emotions based on what my spirit tells me, not what my mind thinks it knows. I can control who and what I allow to affect my energy. This is where my work is to be done.

How do I remain true to who I know myself to be, if every person around me is trying to change and shape me into what they want me to be? After all, we were born to be unique, grow into whom we were born to be, a magnificent masterpiece filled with an abundance of love given to circulate more of.

The Lesson: Learn to love in order to dim the pain. Hurt people generally hurt other people way more then they likely know. Love trumps hate but very few people practice love, but would rather argue, disagree and make that their ultimate truth. Closing off to their core, their nature and this is to love, unite and create abundance of everything desirable, everything lovable, everything true within you.

Fact is this – until we change the cycle of hatred, anger and violence we recreate what we hate, as opposed to putting out flames by deviating from the fuel that adds to the flame.  In order to produce what I love, I’ll simply make the shift from the insanity of trying to control things outside of me to working on what’s inside of me and putting on God’s armor daily! (Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV)

How far our power goes depends on what we choose to think, feel and meditate on. These emotions align with the forces of the universe, which in turn deliver the creations that we’ve decided on. Good, bad it really makes know difference. We will receive what we believe whole-heartedly and this is one of life’s laws. (Isaiah 59:21)

We are multidimensional beings. We aid in creation but don’t hold the power to dictate how it comes into fruition. When we are creating we are creating out of love or out of fear, the two never coincide. Here is how to discern the differences in the two and to determine what it is you have been creating for yourself and the impact it has on others around you.

When we create out of fear we are telling the universe we aren’t enough and to throw at us, what it wills. When we create out of fear we are often double minded, confused and unable to make solid decisions. This implies lack of vision and we all know from the good book, when we lack vision, we parish (Proverbs 29:18). If we feel incomplete and lack, we begin chasing external things to feed the soul. This will always leave us feeling empty inside. Always. When we create in fear we attract people, places and situations that drain us. When we create in fear we encounter people that don’t have our best interest at heart. When we create in fear we are not using our power; we often play the victim role. When we create in fear we walk in doom, one thing after another. We now feel powerless and often wonder what’s the point of it all. But get this – you can turn away from creating a life of fear, into a life that provides and promote a life you love.

Its when we align our mind, emotions and will according to the divine plan is when we feel whole, happy, complete and at peace. When we create in love, we are hopeful and optimistic for all. When we create in love we know longer have to seek externally. When we create in love, we love what we have as we are grateful souls. When we create in love there isn’t any resistance, things flow naturally there’s know need to question. When we create in love we have a sense of solid protection, we know that no weapons formed against us shall prosper, ever (Isaiah 54:17). When we create out of love we embody confidence, joyfulness and creativity that brings wisdom, passion and excitement to all who encounter us. When we create in love we create acceptance and unity. Being in full acceptance of our own works is key to living happily.  But how can we be in acceptance of our works if they promote fear, lack and inequity? Therefore pay attention to how you treat yourself as well as other beings equally.

Be authentic. Be honest. Pay attention to what surrounds you. Remain in awareness of what thoughts are feeding you. It’s when we are in touch with our perfect, limitless existence that we begin to recognize and atone for our misguided focus of attention. We lose our power to create positively when our perceptions are altered. Let me be clear, all things created in fear is false and keeps us living a life of despair.

Once that shift of awareness takes place so does the way we create! We then begin operating in love, instead of fear and hate; this now causes us to walk away from all things false and into what’s true. Your ability to see things clearly has risen for you! It’s as if your eyes have just been open! Your ability to create magically now takes place and presents itself in physical forms. People, places and situations are now working with you, not against you. You’re now living a life you love, not one you hate. The universe now supports you and begins to bring you what fills your core, not only individually but also universally! Now, lets take back our power and choose to see things through lenses of love when we create, as this is, how far our power actually goes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the bible, the book of Genesis depicts a story of God’s creation of the beginning of time. Heaven and earth was made, the creation of man, woman and all living things. The Garden of Eden, Eden also means the presence of God, tells a story regarding the temptation the serpent brought to Adam and Eve in God’s creation of paradise. Now, the serpent, which according to the dictionary is known as a large snake or could also mean a sly or treacherous person, especially one who exploits a position of trust in order to betray it.

What’s most prevalent to me is when the serpent deceives Eve to believe the instruction given by God, she should supersede. In fact, the serpent goes on to tell Eve, she would be smarter and more “like God” if she did the opposite of what God told her to do, which is not eat from this forbidden fruit tree. Not only did she eat from this forbidden tree, she then convinced her counterpart to do the exact same thing. Although the story in the bible is said to have occurred eons ago, the same cycle is still occurring today. Has modern society become the new age Adam and Eve? I’d like to take you back into biblical times just to give a simpler understanding to what occurred then and how it connects us to the lives we all live now.

Just picture it, the beauty of colorful trees and leaves, the bright blue sky and vibrant colors of flowers and green grass. A place of indefinite serenity, happiness and unity! The freedom to be fruitful and multiply, a life of order; Heaven on earth with direct access to your Creator, it was perfect! Then imagine having life, as you know it, stolen. That’s what happens to us when we choose to believe the lies of the serpent. That’s also what happened to Adam and Eve, just read and see.

Adam and Eve dwelled in the Garden of Eden, meaning they dwelled in the presence of God until the serpent (devil, enemy, ego) came and convinced them to eat of the tree of what’s good and evil (judgment). Adam and Eve had been given specific instruction from God “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:15-17) However the serpent came to her with deceptive temptation and said, “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”(Genesis 3:4-5) and boom, just like that she had been deceived, her life and Adam’s, stolen. (Genesis 3:12-13Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”)

Once they ate of this tree, they began to see things differently. They now felt they had enough wisdom to judge accordingly. Then moment Adam and Eve judged what they perceived things to be, after eating from this Knowledge of Good and Bad tree their perception of life, themselves and God had changed from a limitless life, lacking in nothing to fear and adversity. After all how would they be able to judge accordingly, when they were not the creators of this Knowledge of Good and Bad tree? The enemy was able to deceive. Now Adam and Eve feel fear and hide from God, creating a false illusion of separation and anxiety. Eating fruit from the forbidden tree caused them to judge and forget their true God given destiny. Before this serpent came and deceived, they saw themselves and their lives whole, perfect and complete.

Eyes that once saw beauty now see imperfection, insecurity, and feel a false sense of rejection. The plan to steal, kill and destroy has begun to arise and take form. Realizing that you shouldn’t have eaten from this tree, shame and guilt is now causing you to flee and turn away from the very source that gave you life abundantly. (Genesis 3:10 -12 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked?)

We have all been given a God given destiny of pure limitless perfection. We lack in nothing! The story of Adam and Eve is a depiction of all the sons and daughters of God being deceived daily to believe we aren’t enough, don’t have enough, aren’t pretty, funny, or whatever it may be – it’s a lie! We are also deceived to believe we know enough about a person, situation or justice or injustice to place judgment. Fact is we don’t. We do not see all nor will we ever know all, God is the only creator, therefore the only judge. God made you perfectly anything to the contrary is a lie of the enemy. Let’s simply agree we aren’t the creators of the world we see. Lets turn away from all judgment and banish separation and conformity. Make the choice to return to our God given destiny, whole, perfect and complete and stay far away from that damn Knowledge of Good and Bad tree!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the beginning, it was finished! God did what He was going do for all of us already. God created Heaven and Earth, sent Jesus to bare witness and die for our sins, raised Him up on the third day that who ever might believe may always live!!! God has also sent many other spiritual teachers who held similar messages of peace, stillness and acceptance but it is now up to us to live and bear witness, when will we get this? We all hold the power to do this!! The grace and mercy offered is limitless. It is our responsibility to create a life of fruitfulness and vitality; thank goodness our power is limitless!

We have the power to make anything take form, that’s the power God placed within us all! Yet and still we sit and wait for some kind of outer direction to take form. What is it that your heart is telling you? De-clutter you mind, sit in stillness and see what you’ll find – that internal compass you’d always been searching for is in fact inside. Your opinion and mental concepts is what separates you from your direction and ultimately causes more confusion. How will you ever trust which way to go if you continue to seek what your mental conditioning or concepts have to tell you? Your mind tells you all sorts of things, may even make you think its protecting you but fact is, it’s God, the Universe that has your back, not your mental concepts of heavily misrepresented facts.

This world has been going on for centuries and will continue to do so after you and me so do you really think our opinions hold that much validity? Why do we hold our opinions so dear to our hearts as if we are the ones who dictate how other people play their parts? God is the very flow of all that’s known and unknown. Our mind is limited to our perceptions based on a convoluted history, which happens to be what currently feeds our mental concepts and current reality. We sit and analyze all that we think is wrong, but who are we to say what’s right and what’s wrong. Why do you think the bible stresses the fact to judge NOT? Judgment clutters our mind and hardens our hearts. In order to be free and allow spirit to flow – quiet the mind and listen with your heart.

 

 

My wish for you is that you see, feel and know the value you hold. My wish for you is to see the beauty that lives within you. My wish for you is to push through your fears. My wish for you is to live life through compassion, offering love, non-judgment and living life full of passion. My wish for you is to be totally happy, vibrant and true to the very nature of you. Enjoying life, living a life that’s pleasing to you.

My wish for you is to know how much love surrounds your very being, after all that’s why God woke you up. My wish for you is to know that life is a gift; we live in a limitless world, lets not be afraid to take healthy risks. My wish for you is to know that life gives you exactly what you think it should. My wish for you is to regain control of the mind, which holds keys to unlock your soul.

My wish is for you to know that no matter what happens on the outside of you, it is ultimately to help make you, a better you. As I always say, life happens for us, not to us. My wish for you is to know that your Creator made you perfect, a special unique creation that can’t be duplicated – EVER!

YOU are amazing, special, wonderful and talented – believe that and live on those facts! After all we already see what doing the opposite has caused for all of us. It has caused us to have low self-esteem, thinking we don’t deserve a life fit for a King. It doesn’t matter what we have done when we ask God to provide a clear, clean and pure heart, we can then forgive others and ourselves; in doing that our freedom begins to unfold.

What the enemy intended to cause you your ruin, your Creator has turned into beautiful blessings instead! (Romans 8:28 Or that all things work together for good to those who love God, who; or that in all things God works together with those who love him to bring about what is good) My wish for you is to know your value and worth comes from what we believe about ourselves. The best trick of the enemy is to get you to believe you are unworthy and in doing that we create a life that mirrors and supports that very belief. Remember the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy and we all know what has control over our mind has control over our lives and begins eating at our souls.

My wish is for you to know the battle has already been won. Stand firm and take hold of your internal power that has been given freely to each and every one of us. (Ephesians 6:10 -13 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground)

My wish for you is to get out of your head; it’s now time to let the heart take the wheel instead. For generations we have allowed our logic to run our lives and in doing that we see what the world has become. My wish for you is to know that God is in control – as the old prayer goes, God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot control.

My wish for you is to understand and know, regardless of what other people’s lives may look like on the outside; there isn’t a person alive who hasn’t gone through some sort of struggle or travesty. My wish for you is to see the worthiness you possess even though life has been seemingly unfair. Trust me this is a skill that must be mastered but it’s worth it, every single effort. Every thing we go through inevitably supports the growth, healing and well being which enables the life God intended for all of us.
