A Story of Creation

Hi friends! I wanted to share a very beautiful article with you. Reading it brought me joy and I hope it does the same for you.ūüėä Enjoy!

A Story of Creation

My dear friends, we love you so very much,

Your lives were meant to be a joyful co-creative dance with the Divine and with one another. “So what has happened upon your earth?” you ask us. Why is life so challenging?

Let us tell you a little fairy tale¬† ‚Äď a story of how you came to exist…

Once upon a endless now the Source imagined a beautiful soul and in the very act of imagining you, suddenly your spirit was born.

Imagine you could invent the most amazing character in your mind.Imagine you could tell him or her, “I am giving you life! You are created within me. You live in my very own mind. I am dreaming that you will experience wonderful adventures within me. I am dreaming of your magnificent talents, your wonderful relationships, your experience of the abundance of my heart. I give you life.”

“I am in you and you are in me.

This is exactly, dear ones, how the Divine Created you. You are not separate. You live within the mind and heart of the Infinite. You are a creation of the Divine. You are within the Source, and the Source is within you... exactly as if you invented a character that is within your mind, and you are within this character. Can you imagine?

Take this a step further.¬†Imagine you said to this character that you created in your mind, “I love you so much! I can imagine so many wonderful things for you! I give you life within my mind. I can imagine all you can create.¬†Hmmm, if I give you free will, you may become even more than I can dream for you.You may come up with ideas, adventures, inventions and relationships even beyond what I can imagine in this moment. All things are possible in my mind. Let me give you free will and see what you will create. Let us see how you will take my Love, and create even more.

I will allow you all choices, but My promise is that I will always try to steer you into the most loving choices, no matter what you choose. 

And so, dear ones, in like fashion, God created you. Each one of you is lovingly dreamt into being by your Creator. Each one of you exists in the infinite field of Divine love ‚Äď in the mind of God itself.¬†¬†Each one of you is sourced from, and given life by the creator with whom you have never lost your connection.

Each one of you, through your free will, is given the power to experience and expand the Source’s understanding of its own love.¬†You, through your choices, are given the ability to expand the love of God! You take part in the expansion of the universe and in the expansion of Love! You matter.

So why do you suffer?¬†Why is there hatred, when all God dreamed for each and every one of you is love? It is only when you forget this connection at some point in your soul’s eternal existence that you begin to suffer. In forgetting you begin to feel that you must handle life alone or you feel that you must suffer to save others, or to “make up for past sins.” You feel that in your suffering there is great merit. In truth there is a lot you can learn from suffering. It catalyzes you to reconnect with the Source, and to remember the love from which you are made. However, in reality, you were never asked to suffer.

Some souls volunteer to suffer, knowing that the world understands suffering more easily than ease. These are usually those highly evolved beings who realize that even in spite of physical suffering, the soul does not need to suffer, or be unhappy.¬†The might be in physical pain or in poverty but they radiate love, joy, inspiration, and truth. They too are proving to themselves their Oneness with love in spite of all the world’s illusions.

Take time in silence. Drop into your hearts.  What feels like love in this moment, is love in this moment. You have an internal compass that knows what love feels like and always seeks to find its Presence.

At any time you can return to your God-given, loving guidance and shift back into streams of Grace. Even if you have challenges in your physical existence, you can in every breath, return to love… and in so doing, this Love will begin to transform and guide you.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.
— The Angels

Is the Grass Greener? part 5

Rebecca stared back into his eyes and said, ” Fine, I guess a cup of coffee won’t hurt. I’ll give you a call and let you know when it’s a good time.”

” Great! I’ll be waiting for that call sweetheart,” said Marco.

Rebecca turned around and started walking towards her car. She couldn’t help but to wonder if she made the right choice saying yes. On the drive home, ¬†she started thinking about how she felt like she would officially be cheating on John if she saw Marco again. Despite the fact that they’re only friends, she can’t fight the feeling of having a small crush on him. When she made it to the driveway of her home , her husband John was standing outside.

“Where were you? I’ve been waiting to talk with you?” John said.

“I was out to dinner with a friend. Either way, I needed time to cool off. ” Rebecca walked in the house and sat down in her recliner.

” Well, go ahead and talk; I’m listening,” said Rebecca.

John walked up and stood over her. “I really didn’t mean to upset you so much, it’s just that I wanted you to know how it felt to catch your spouse lusting after someone else. You know I’m not really interested in those kind of movies,” said John.

” I know why you did it. It’s just that I wish you would’ve ¬†listened to me rather than try and get even. I told you I only read the book because we don’t have any romance in our marriage. So I got my fix that way. Would you had rather I cheated on you!” Rebecca yelled.

“I’ve done nothing to deserve for you to cheat on me! Yes, I know, I’m usually busy. I don’t really have the time to be romantic. But maybe if you would dress sexy and fix yourself up sometime, perhaps that would grab my attention, ” John said.

Rebecca started to turn red in the face.

“Oh, I’m sorry! I’m only a nurse who work long night shifts! I don’t have the time to look like a super model. But I’m glad to finally know that you ignore me because you think I look disgusting. You aren’t so hot yourself! I don’t complain about your balding head or your extra weight! All I asked for was to be given a little more attention!” Rebecca got up and pushed John out the way. She rushed to their bedroom and slammed the door shut. She locked the door.

“That’s not what I meant. Rebecca! Rebecca!” yelled John.

She couldn’t believe what her husband just told her. She started to think about how Marco made her feel beautiful. Rebecca started to cry. She replayed Marco voice in her head telling her she could wear a paper bag to dinner and she would still be beautiful. Rebecca was confused on what to do. What she did know is that she didn’t want her husband anywhere near her. She never thought John would ever be so insensitive. John started knocking on the door.

” Rebecca! Let me in! ”

“Go away!” Rebecca yelled.

“Please! I’m sorry! Either way it’s my room too. Come on and let me in. Let’s talk about it. I didn’t mean what I said. I said it out of anger! ” John yelled. He started banging on the door.

“I can’t do this anymore,” Rebecca said. Rebecca opened up the bedroom door and walked out past John and towards the door outside.

” Where are you going?! It’s already midnight, ” said John.

“I’m going to go buy some sexy clothes so I don’t disgust you”, Rebecca said. She busted out the door and jumped in the car and drove off. She didn’t know where She was going, but she knew she didn’t want to be around John. Marco smile kept coming back to her. So She picked up her cell phone and gave Marco a call.

“Hello?” Marco said with a scratchy voice.

” I’m sorry I called you this late. It sound like I woke you up”, Rebecca said.

” Hearing from you is always a pleasure. Are you calling about the coffee date?”

“Actually yes. I know this sound crazy, and I’d totally understand if you said no, but would you like to join me for coffee tonight? I had a big fight with my husband and I don’t want to be around him right now. I think I could use your advice,” Rebecca said.

” Well yes, of course! It’s my pleasure! Where do we meet? ” he asked.

“Jonah’s Coffee shop on twenty third and Filmore. ”

“I’ll be there !” Marco hung up.

Rebecca smiled and blushed at his enthusiasm. When she finally drove up to the Coffee shop, Marco was standing at his car waiting for her. He walked up to her car and opened up her door.

” Wow, you made it here fast! Did you teleport!?” Rebecca asked.

“Ha! Practically. I have to admit I was excited when you asked to see me. I thought I’d ¬†probably never see you again. I wasn’t sure you really wanted to go out for coffee,” Marco said.

Rebecca and Marco walked in the coffee shop and took a seat. ” Well, I was planning on seeing you again, just not this soon. My husband just said the most horrible things to me and I really needed a listening ear,” said Rebecca.

“Oh, What did he say?” Marco asked.

“It’s a long story, but in short, my husband said he would give me the time of day if I fixed my myself up. I guess I ¬†look like a slob to him. We’ve been fighting ever since he caught me reading a romance novel. I told him I only read it because he doesn’t give me enough attention. So, he got me back by watching adult movies. And now everything is messed up between my husband and I. I can’t believe I’m telling you all this!” Rebecca laid her face in her hands in embarrassment.

” Don’t be embarrassed! You’re talking to someone who has had thire share of arguments in marriages. I think what he told you was horrible. You look absolutely beautiful to me. I have no idea what he’s talking about. Perhaps it’s the other way around. Maybe he feels insecure about himself. I know I never felt good enough for my wives.”

Rebecca smiled and looked down. “Well, he sure don’t act like he feels that way,” Rebecca said.

” You’ll get through this. I’m here for you,” he said.

“I think I’m ready for my coffee. Are you? Rebecca asked. ”

“Oh, yes!” he replied. Marco ordered two cappuccinos.

The waitress sat down thire coffee. ” Drink up!” Marco said.

Rebecca took a sip. “This is really good. But unfortunately it doesn’t solve my problem with my husband,” ¬†She said.

Marco started gazing at her with a blank face. “Is everything ok?” Rebecca asked.

“Oh, yes. I was just thinking about how you need to relax. I think I can solve your problem,” Marco said.

“Ha! Really?” Rebecca laughed.

“Is that your keys on the floor?” Marco asked.

Rebecca bent down to look at the floor. Just when she bent down, Marco slipped a pill in her coffee.

“I don’t see anything,” Rebecca said.

“Sorry, I guess I was seeing things. Don’t let your coffee get cold”, he said.

“Yeah,” Rebecca said. She started taking sips of coffee. All of a sudden, Rebecca started rubbing her eyes.

“What’s wrong?” Marco asked smiling.

“I feel really tired and a little dizzy,” she said.

“Well, it is two in the morning. I’m sure you’re just tired and stressed out. Let me drive you home. You shouldn’t be driving in this condition,” Marco said.

“Okay, thanks. I feel so strange!” Rebecca eyes started rolling around and her body became weak.

Marco helped lift her out of her seat and walked her to his car. He sat her in the back seat.

“Just sit back and relax; I’ll get you ¬†home,” he said. Marco got in and started to drive.

” Wait! Don’t you need my address? Where are you going?” Rebecca asked in a slurred voice.

“Just sit back,” he said. Just when Rebecca reached out her arm to stop him, she passed out.

Marco continued to drive and smiled.

Rebecca had another big argument with her husband, so she decided to take that offer for coffee with Marco. But it turns out that maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. Marco slipped something in her coffee that caused her to pass out. Now instead of driving¬†her home, he is driving her who knows where! Read the continuation to find out what happens next!

Is the Grass Greener? Part 4

As Rebecca drove she started to think about Mr. Albate. She really felt like she could use the good company. She took the number out of her pocket and started to think about if she should call him. After hard thinking and consideration, she decided to give Mr. Albate a call. She pulled over into a parking lot and made the call. Rebecca hand started to shake. Calling him made her more nervous than she thought. He answered the phone.

” Hello!” he said.

” Hi, this is Rebecca. I was your nurse last night.”

” Hello Rebecca! I’m so glad to hear from you. I didn’t expect you to keep the number!”

” Well, I wasn’t, but you seemed like such a nice guy, so I thought maybe a cup of coffee wouldn’t hurt.”

” That sound great! Are you free tonight? I’m out the hospital now, and I ¬†sure could use the good company and meal after eating that hospital food. I would love you to join me for dinner.”

Rebecca heart started to beat faster. Her husband John came to her mind. But she gave herself a quick pep talk convincing herself that it’s only a friendly dinner date.

” Okay, sure! ¬†But not tonight, it’s so last minute. I’m not even dressed for the occasion,” she said.

” No worries! he said. Casual dress is fine. Do you like pizza? I know a nice little pizza joint that make the best pizza in town! So how about it? ”

Rebecca smiled. “Okay! You won me over. I love pizza. Where can I meet you? I’m on the road now!” Rebecca couldn’t believe she just blurted out yes.

“Meet me at Leonardo’s Pizza. Do you need the address?”

” I’ve drove by it before. I’ll be fine. I should be there in about thirty minutes. Is that fine?” Rebecca asked.

” That’s perfect! See you in a few!” he said.

Rebecca hung up the phone. She blushed at how she could hear the excitement in his voice. She started reminiscing about how John used to sound that way. Rebecca started looking in the mirror and fixing her hair and makeup. She looked at the time and saw it was six o’clock in the evening. She again started to second think about if she was making the right choice. She started to wonder how John would react if she told him she went to dinner with a guy. She started to consider backing out of the date. But then she had a sudden flash back of John watching adult movies. The thought of it made her furious all over again. The memory gave her the confidence to start¬†her car, and make her way to the restaurant. She didn’t want her son to worry, so she called her son Jeff and let him know she was going out to dinner. When Rebecca made it to the parking lot of the restaurant, she began to get butterflies. She got out the car and walked in the resturant. Mr. Albate saw her and waved. He got up to greet her with a big smile and hug.

“Hello there! You look lovely this evening, ” he said. He kissed her on the cheek. Rebecca couldn’t help but to notice how handsome he looked dressed in his pollo shirt and khakis.

” Thank you! I don’t feel lovely wearing jeans and a t-shirt,” Rebecca said.

” Don’t be silly. You could wear a paper bag to dinner and look just as lovely. I’m so glad you took me up on my offer. You seem like such a nice lady. I’d love to learn more about you. Oh yeah, and call me Marco, ” he said.

Rebecca started to blush. ” You seem like a very nice guy too Marco, I’d love to learn more about you also.” Rebecca noticed him scanning his eyes all over her body. ¬†She liked how he actually showed interest in her unlike her husband.

“Shall we order? ” he asked.

“Yes, what do you recommend?” Rebecca asked.

“How about we share a vegetarian pizza? ¬†I’m trying to watch my waist line! Haha!”

“Sounds great, me too!” She said. Rebecca started thinking about how she admired his sense of humor. John never was much of the type to tell jokes.

Marco called over the waiter. As he was ordering, she couldn’t help but to think about her husband. She started feeling guilty again about being out with another man. This was supposed to be only a “friendly” dinner, but she found herself feeling like a teenage girl on her very first date. His presence gave her butterflies. She started staring at him and found herself really attracted to his smooth classic appearance. The smell of his cologne made her swoon. The more she felt those emotions, the more guilty she began to feel.

After he finished ordering, he said, ” So, Rebecca, tell me more about your family.”

“Well, I’ve been married for 18 years to my husband John. He’s a high school teacher. We have one son together named Jeff who is now sixteen,” Rebecca said.

“Wow! You’ve been married that long and only had one kid?” Marco asked.

” Yes, Our careers didn’t allow much time to expand our family. Being a nurse takes up a lot of your time,” Rebecca said.

” How did you guys meet?” Marco asked.

We met twenty years ago at a local bar in town. At the time I was a bartender there, and John came in crying because his girlfriend had just dumped him. I was there to talk him through it. We were inseparable after that.”

“Wow, great way to meet,” he said.

The waiter came and sat the pizza down.

“Wow, this look delicious, Rebecca said. I’ll dig in while you tell me more about yourself!”

Marco sat back and took a deep breath. ” Well, I’ve been married three times. I haven’t had much luck in love. I was married under five years to all three. I have two kids with my first wife, one with my second wife, and none with my third. I’ve learned my lesson! No more wives or children! ”

“Haha! I’m sure”, Rebecca laughed. Despite her laughter, she actually found what he said quite alarming. She started thinking maybe he’s not that charming after all. She could see the embarrassment in his face as he continued.

“Yeah, I’ve been single for five years now. ¬†I’m just fine with focusing on my career, and taking care of my children,” Marco said.

“Oh, what do you do for a living? That’s if you don’t mind me asking,” Rebecca said.

“Oh, no, not at all, I’m an architecture, ” he said.

“Great career”, she said. She started thinking about how she couldn’t believe all those crazy things were coming out of the mouth of an handsome architecture. She was afraid to ask ¬†about his children. He already had enough working against him.

Rebecca phone started to ring. ” I’m sorry, let me take this call. ”

” Of course,” he said.

“Hello?”

” When are you coming home?” asked John.

“I’ll be home in an hour or so. But either way, don’t wait up for me,” Rebecca replied.

” Look, I’m willing to talk things out if you are,” John said.

Marco watched Rebecca with a look of concern as she talked on the phone. Rebecca looked at John back in embarrassment.

” Look, we’ll discuss this later, I have to go!” Rebecca said. She hung up the phone and took a deep breath.

Marco noticed her look of discomfort. ” Is everything okay?” He asked.

“Oh, yes, I’m fine!”

“You can’t fool me! Ha! I’ve been in three marriages; I know the look and feel of there being trouble in paradise. I don’t want to get in your business, but I’m here if you need my advice. I’ve experienced a little bit of everything!” Marco said laughing.

Rebecca smiled and replied, ” I’m fine, really. The pizza was delicious, thank you so much for the lovely evening, but I really should get going now.” After hearing about all his marriages, Rebecca didn’t feel comfortable confiding in him. He actually made her feel awkward and turned off.

“Of course! He said. I really enjoyed your company. Thanks for joining me. Is it possible to see you again? Perhaps for that cup of coffee?” He gazed at her with a look of desperation and uncertainty. He could tell she was turned off after hearing about his ex-wives.

” Ummm……..that really don’t seem like a good idea. I’m sorry. This dinner itself might have been a bad idea. I did break my rule of not mixing business with pleasure. I had a wonderful time, honestly. But I just can’t. Goodbye Marco. Rebecca patted him on the back and then turned to leave. That’s when he grabbed her by the hand and stared her in the eyes and said, ” please……”

Rebecca looked at him astonished. She resented Marco putting her on the spot. She already regretted going out to dinner with another man behind her husband back. And he also didn’t seem so much like the charming guy she imagined him to be. Rebecca couldn’t help but to wonder if he was the cause of all his divorces. What caused all those women to divorce a well spoken, handsome, architecture? But on the flip side, he was supposed to be just a friend and nothing more. And his company did help her forget about what John did. She stared back into his eyes and said……..

To be continued!

Rebecca finally made the call to Mr. Albate. She had a lovely dinner with him at the pizza joint that she ended up regretting. Now Mr. Albate wants another date! Should she?! Will she say yes? Read the continuation to find out!
