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.😊 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  – 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 – 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.

We have no soul/ spirit?

Hi friends! I wanted to talk about how a lot of people debate on whether we have a soul or not. I’m assuming that atheist are the ones who believe that once we “die” that’s it. Materialist believe that conciousness/mind and self-awareness resides directly in the brain. In other words, they believe that we are flesh robots! It’s the neurons sparking that create our minds.

brain-1845962_640

Most scientist and medical researchers take that stance on conciousness. I’m no professional, but I want to give my personal opinion. I don’t even have to use spirituality or philosophy to prove my point that we have a soul. Our conciousness is not the brain! Our soul uses our brain! So I’m going to use a common sense approach. The first step is to know what the human brain looks like.

live_brain

Yes, this is the human brain. The human brain is made of gray matter. This is made up of about 100 billion neurons that gather and transmit signals while the white matter is made of dendrites and axons that the neurons use to transmit signals. The brain is composted of about 75% water and is the fattiest organ in the body, consisting of a minimum of 60% fat.(The Human Brain – Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). So, as you can see, it doesn’t contain thoughts or self-awareness inside of it on it’s own. There’s no projector or computer chip hidden inside the brain. It’s just an organ made of flesh. It also doesn’t hold electrical sparks inside of it without a force behind it. The force is you by the way. Without you it’s a lump of matter! Now, what can we compare the function of the brain to? How about a television!

tv-2213140_640

As you can see, the television is made of matter too. It’s Just a different texture and not made of cells. Now, look at the brain and television. Both are dead without a force to operate it and bring it to life. Both is just a clump of matter. The television is powered by energy in the wall. Hey! Guess what! We are also powered by energy. Did you know that we are made of energy!? Yes! That’s why the brain and heart has electrical impulses when you the force is behind it! Also, that is why we need food and the sun to maintain our energy! We are energetic beings. But, since we are souls, we don’t need to plug in the wall! We are the energy! Now we all know that the television needs signal to show a picture.

raisting-1010862_640

Now, for you materialists, are you assuming that our brain made of matter is receiving signal from some artificial satellite giving us humans self-awareness and mind? Well, that could work if we all thought exactly the same like robots! But we don’t! That’s why we are debating on whether we have a soul or not. No two people think exactly alike! Have you noticed that televisions have the same channels! People from all over can view the same program on the same channels. That’s because it’s using an artificial satellite/ signal. And no matter how “smart” your television is, it’ll never be self-aware or conscious like you. It can only receive energy from the wall, satellite signals, and preprogrammed features. Now you on the other hand, where do you think your brain get it’s signal from? No, not just the neurons. Neurons are just:

neu·ron
ˈn(y)o͝orän/
noun
plural noun: neurons
  1. a specialized cell transmitting nerve impulses; a nerve cell.
 As you can see, the definition says nothing about you being a neuron. The neuron and cells is not conscious . It’s just a nerve! So, again, where is the signal itself coming from? Hmmm…sound spooky…..lol🎃😄! The signal is coming from your soul/ spirit silly! You incorporate your conciousness into your brain. You create the mind of the brain. Mind is not tangible. When you tell the brain to move your leg, then it moves. Your brain doesn’t tell you to move your leg then you move it. Your brain doesn’t control you, you control it! When you dream, there is no projector to create images in your brain. That is you your soul in dream land. And yes, if the brain becomes damaged, your soul won’t be able to use certain functions of the tool you use to interact with this plane of existence. The same way if you smash the television screen, you won’t be able to see the picture anymore. But that doesn’t mean the source the picture came from is destroyed. Why? Because the signal is not tangible, just the television! If you unplug the television, the tv is dead. But, the source of energy/ electricity is not! It just went back to it’s source. Just like the tv signal went back to it’s source because it can no longer use that set to shine through!
Sound familiar huh? When our soul can no longer use the body and brain to interact with this plane of existence, our energy and conciousness simply go back to it’s source. Energy can’t be created nor destroyed. Conciousness, mind and self-awareness is not tangible. So it can’t be destroyed! That’s how God was able to give us eternal life. He made the real us intangible!

So, after clearly explaining how we have a soul, does anybody still think we have no soul!?

A Divine Quest

Hey friends! I go to a site called Heaven Letters. This is a wonderful site. The writer of this site is awesome. Very great writer! JI go to this site from time to time for inspiration and encouragement. I would like to share today’s Heaven letter with my friends!😁 Enjoy! 

 

A Divine Quest

God said:

You have heard the advice: “Don’t be on a fool’s errand.”

You may look at this guidance in several ways. One way is: What else is there in the temporal Life on Earth but a fool’s errand? HA HA!

All the running around you do and all the dreams you dream, and soon or late, dreams change their appearance, and, soon or late, you walk out of this worldly Life and wave a fond good-bye and enter the Highest Heavens which, I remind you — you have never left.

To enter the Highest Heavens is everyone’s Destiny.

At the same time as this is true, you do not always feel confident in your Destiny. Regardless, you are on a Divine Quest. As you seek, so shall you find. I am wanting to clarify that in your seeking intimate and ultimate Truth, you are not a fool, and Life cannot quite be a fool’s errand, for your God’s Honest Truth will come to you.

That which you seek is your Self, beloveds. Whatever quest you may believe you are on, no matter how worthy-seeming or worthless-seeming, it is your Self you are seeking. To seek your Self – this is great privilege and happiness. As you come closer to your Holy Self, the greater the mastery you reveal. Closer to your Self are you as you continue in Life. Surely you will come to see your growth. Hail to you, Beautiful Soul of Mine.

Living Life on Earth is your project. Everyone has the same yet so different a project. Yes, there is this Infinite Oneness, and there is also the Wonder of Individuality.

No two human Beings are alike. There is a whole world of Oneness, and there is a whole world of separate uniqueness as well. Instead of one ribbon of Life, each Child of Oneness is two-ribboned, two-pronged, We can say.

You live in a world filled with wonders of diverse kinds. The world is entirely filled with royalty that looks like royalty or may look like ruffian-ship and poverty of one kind and another. Nevertheless, all the differences are on the surface. In the Depths, there is Oneness. There is Oneness, Beloveds.

Surely you know you live in a magical world where anything can seem to be or not seem to be.

Just think of all the varieties of language, of countries, of soil and scenery, and waterways. What a great Kingdom of Kingdoms you live in. What a blueprint I have given you. This is your Destiny, and you will fulfill it.

You hardly dare dream of what is coming around the corner for you. You are going to meet something Great, for your destiny is embedded within you. Of course, you are made for Greatness.

The Greatness you are made for consists not of ego. O My Goodness, ego can’t even light a candle to you. One way or another, ego will trip you up. Even when ego delivers the honorariums you like, somehow or another, it will lay you low. In Truth, ego plays tricks on you. Ego will cheat you. The best ego can do is to lead you on.

In the world, you have had bouts of ego. As powerful as you are, ego has had its way with you and trounced you. At the same time, no matter how ego may have had its fun with you at your expense, there is absolutely nothing lacking in you. You have paid attention to the blackguard ego who seems more real to you than the world of Spirit that may elude you.

You are learning all the tricks of the trade of this Great Life on Earth right now. Faster and faster, you become closer and closer to your Destiny.

You and I, We meet head on.

Never Buy Frozen burritos Again! Save Money Now! 💰

Hi friends! I want to give you a great money saving tip! If you’re like me, sometimes after a busy day you want the taste of a homemade meal without the big fuss. So we order out to get the closest thing to home cooked. But ordering out can be very expensive. So why not make your own frozen dinners! You get a home cooked meal, and it’s way better quality than the frozen dinners at the grocer. I used to fall victim to the packs of frozen burritos in the frozen food aisle. They were expensive and cheated me on the filling! I was chewing on tortillas and barely cheese and bean! So, I created the perfect solution! I simply made my own burritos and froze them. It’s very simple to do! Here is the recipe!

super-soft-flour-soft-taco
One pack of flour or wheat tortillas.
download (2)
One can of refried beans.
cheese_shredded_cheddar
Shredded cheese of choice.

You can add any filling that you like, just make sure that it’s room temperature and it’s not dripping with moisture/ juice. If so, you will get soggy tortillas. For the bean burritos you can either heat up the refried beans in a saucepan and then let it cool to room temperature, or you can dump the beans out of the can into a bowl and stir it until it’s smooth. I usually loosen up my bean filling by heating and cooling  it to room temperature. Now that you have made the mixture pliable for spooning, lay out a single tortilla. Spoon your desired amount of filling onto the tortilla. Please don’t add too much filling or it will spill out when you fold up the tortilla! Then add your shredded cheese. Now it’s folding time!

d9cc0a4c58ce18ac86bf51c5d2228e72

You may not fold it properly the first couple of times. But don’t become discouraged. You’ll be just fine as long as you don’t add too much filling. Once you have all your burritos folded, wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Then put all the wrapped burritos in a large freezer bag. And now you have your own homemade frozen burritos!

Note: You can heat them up in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven.

Enjoy!

Are You Possessed By The Green Eyed Monster?

Hi friends! I wanted to talk about jealousy/ envy. This is a strong emotion that God gifted us with that we often misuse. Yes, you read right! This strong emotion is a gift. It wasn’t an emotion that was supposed to torment us, give us low self-esteem, and make us feel unworthy. It’s an emotion that was meant to pull out the best in us. It’s an alarm in us that reveals our deepest insecurities and desires of our hearts. You can learn a lot about yourself by examining those you are jealous of. Let me give you some examples. Perhaps you and your friend is overweight. You both get along perfectly as friends  because you both share the same insecurities of your bodies. But your friend decided to start eating more healthy and started exercising and lost a tremendous amount of weight.

belly-2354_640

So now you are feeling insecure and jealous of your friend. Misery loves company, and now you have no one to be miserable with. So now you lost a good friend because your envy caused you to lash out at her. You say things like ” You think you are better than me now” and ” You look like a skeleton” ; despite the fact you think she looks great. Instead, the right thing to do would be to notice how her new body makes you feel. Your jealousy really is your heart calling out for you to better yourself also. You’re miserable in your body and it’s time for YOU to make a change! Who else better to help you make that change than your friend! Let her be your help and inspiration! Get tips on how she was able to accomplish her goal so you can too! Before you know it, you both will be sharing in the victory!

stock-photo-beautiful-women-working-out-in-gym-together-499280881

Let me give one more example. Perhaps she is now in a new loving romantic relationship. Now you feel jealous and lonely.

woman-228178__480

Perhaps you never really thought about being in a relationship until you saw the happiness it brought your friend. Instead of trying to sabotage the relationship she’s in, notice how her relationship makes you feel. Perhaps it’s time to open up your heart and get in the dating scene. Maybe the ” I don’t need a man” club is not working for you anymore! If your friend found a healthy relationship, use her relationship as inspiration to move forward in your own love life. She might even know someone she could introduce you to!

This advice goes for anything you are jealous of. Whatever you are jealous of, put it as one of your goals to accomplish! It’s your heart telling you what paths in life it desires. Use the person you envy as inspiration! Watch them and get as many tips and advice from them as possible!

Get Rid Of The “Bad” Apples?

Hi friends! A lot of us feel that the world would be a better place if we could just get rid of all the “bad” people in the world. If this or that person was more like us, we would have a heaven on earth! Right? I guess that would work if we all could Commit and come to an agreement on what’s defined as perfect behavior. But, we can’t because there is no such thing. The idea of perfection is instilled in each individuals mind. It’s an illusion. Most of the time we don’t even live up to our own standard of perfection. So I have to say it’s very hypocritical to judge others so harshly! And Of course there is taboos that I feel no one should do! And a majority of us would agree that certain things are just unacceptable. But just getting rid of those small groups who perform taboos won’t save the world. We all have taken on the role of judge, and we feel like it’s time to clean house to rid the world of “evil”!

hammer-719068__480

Oh wait! We can’t! Now we are arguing amongst each other. Since the creator of our brain gave us the ability to have free will, and our own unique perspectives, we can’t come to an agreement on good or bad? How? I mean everyone has the bible and ten commandments, right? No, and it’s not that easy. Take a look at the following example conversations:

These people say: “People who spank their children are abusive and evil.”

These people say: “Because no one spanks their children is why people  have become evil. People who don’t discipline is bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “People who eat meat are savages. It’s a life for God sake!”

These people say: “People who don’t eat meat are pushy and don’t want our bodies to be healthy. They are picking animals over human health! They are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “God only love people of the Christian faith! The rest is bad people going to Hell!”

These people say: “God is love. My Religion/ faith doesn’t teach death or Hell. People like you are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say:” “The death sentence is barbaric! No one should kill anyone! People who believe in that are savages!”

These people say: “Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. This person who killed someone deserve to die. People who don’t believe in the death sentence are bad! They have no regard for victims and care more about the bad guy!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “Same sex couples are wrong. God made man and woman. They are going against nature and God does not Love them. They are bad and going to Hell!”

These people say: “People who say God doesn’t love them have no soul. Same sex couples know no gender and you can’t help who you love. People are people. You people who hate them are savages!”

Who is right and who is wrong?

I could go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of examples, but I’m sure you guys get it by now. Some of you couldn’t stomach some deeper examples! But, I suggest you do this exercise with yourself, because you’ll get better at seeing things from other’s point of view. Anyway, who is right? Who is the bad apples that we can get rid of to make a better world? A heaven on earth? The best we can do is feed our ego, put our judge gown on, and live in the illusion of superiority swearing that we are the only ones with the right answer. Or, we can shove each other’s religious answers down each other’s throat. Either way we are still bumping heads and still don’t know who should stay or go because we all are claiming to be right!

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness ” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Are you the ultimate judge of right or wrong?

Why I don’t judge other religions

Hi friends! I want to talk about why I personally don’t judge other religions. As humans, we have this little voice inside of us that believe that there has to be something or someone bigger than all of this. There has to be a purpose to this life and our life. And we yearn for love, safety, and to depend on someone bigger and more powerful than us. Our soul has this natural urge to be at one with the source of our breath. Billions of souls all around the world is looking, searching, and yearning for God.

window-1231894_640

None of us has seen God with our bare eyes. So you, me, and the whole world is going off of faith, traditions, and our heart. God can’t be seen, but can be felt so subtly in our soul and heart. We all swear that our religion is the right one! Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jehovah witness, Mormon, and so on. All of them is different in belief or practice. But the one thing we forget  that we all have in common is that we all are merely trying to connect with our source. Longing for that love, acceptance, and help from our source. The one that we all share just in different ways. And yes, Christians I know the bible say I am a jealous God and their should be no carved images before me. But, it’s not your place to judge them. It’s God’s! All you are doing is placing hate in your heart! And God doesn’t condone hate. It’s a Loop of hate. How do I know? Because hate creates an uneasy feeling inside you. It torments your soul. It causes one to act mean and angry. And anger causes strife on others. At the end of the day, we all are walking by faith. We all are going by word of mouth. Taking a big leap of faith that our religious book and practices is real. That’s all we can do. Christians! Please stop sending other religions to Hell for their personal belief! It’s not your place. A lot of us is merely in a particular religion because we were raised in it. We were taught that particular religion from youth. Do you really think God would destroy someone from lack of knowing? None of us really “know”. We all walk by faith. To think you are only right is only feeding your ego and making yourself feel superior. None of us is superior! We are all down here having a human experience. All having faith that someone or something have our back that’s beyond it all!
