See Love or the Call For Love

See either Love or a Call for Love

The United Nation’s International Day of Peace is Saturday, September 21. Imagine all the people in all Nations of the World stopping for 24 hours to think about Peace! Peace with other countries, counties, family and neighbors! We don’t have to hate. Do we? Do we have to judge or condemn? If a trusted adult tells us that others are offensive we may tend to believe them especially when we are young. We are taught and most of us believe and accept but we certainly don’t have to. For example my mother was prejudiced against a certain race. I had played with some of these kids at school and liked them so I did not accept her belief but I did obey her and not go to their house. As it turned out my sister married a man of that race and low and behold, she changed her mind. A mind is a beautiful thing to change. Mom was a lovely person but she accepted her conditioning and passed it on. It reminds me of the Roger’s and Hammerstein South Pacific song, “You have to be taught.” But we do not have to accept society’s teaching. Hate is a choice.

Could it be that a part of our mind enjoys hate? Think about how you feel when you are in the “hate” emotion. Doesn’t it make you feel strong and powerful and above all right! Years ago I worked in an office with a young man who was mentally impaired. He was from a rich family and he annoyed me and I disliked him. Looking back after years of spiritual work I wondered what that was about. I think I hated him because he reminded me of my own mental impairment. I always thought I was stupid! We project onto others that which we have inside yet do not want to see or admit. It is projected out and seen elsewhere but heaven not in me! When I think of him now, I send love to him wherever he is and I believe his soul receives it. I know mine does.

Hate and anger are harmful to the hater in many ways.  Have you ever tried to be nice when you didn’t want to? What does that type of mental activity do to the brain/body? Check out the Every Day Health website, https://www.everydayhealth.com/news/ways-anger-ruining-your-health/ this site document from various studies, the side effects of hate and negative emotions on the heart and brain, creating stress hormones causing depression and even inflammation.   The ego is the “Master Judge” in our mind that runs our lives until we understand we are in fact miserable and see through the fog and decide to change our thoughts and choose peace. The ego very wisely uses projection and hate as a road block to love. We choose the ego until we decide not to. We however have a choice because we are a decider!

Hate is offensive.  When we see angry people it is very ugly and distasteful. We feel a churning inside. TV and movies offer a heavy diet of violence and hate an onslaught to the nervous systems.   To be honest we need to admit the hate we see reflected in the world outside, is also within. If we can admit that then we are no longer in conflict and it dissipates. Instead of pulling the “wool” over our eyes we just look honestly and in looking, it dissolves. If we don’t fight it or put up obstacles we avoid a pile of buried guilt being placed deep within the psyche to emerge unexpectedly, which it will. Look squarely at the angry person and see either love or a call for love.

Try it. You will access a place of peace. You do not need to say aloud “I love you” merely think it.  Your mind is choosing love instead of the ego’s automatic response of disgust or hate.   Anger is their momentarily condition but not their reality. In giving love, you receive it. You don’t know what or if you will “do or say” anything.  The situation will depend on wisdom within from the higher Self within.  You can always think LOVE.

This quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln: “To defeat an enemy, make him a friend.” You could also say “To defeat “my(ego)self”, make myself a friend and see love or a call for love.”

If I exclude love from others; I am excluding love from myself. With compassion we no longer condemn.

We are the same, we all ONE people. The Spark of the Divine is within everyone, so I challenge myself to look for it in others and REMEMBER…..It is also with ME!

Give up the grudge & grievance

IMG_1077

It is hard to believe that our grudges, grievances, worries and envious thoughts do us

more harm than good.  That is because they hide the light.

We actually hide it from our selves.

We are the culprits and are the victims of our own thoughts!

Our mind is as twisted as this snag on the Pacific Crest Trail.

Today devote some time to bringing all dark thoughts to

the Light within.  Shine the light on them and honestly look at how they hurt

your beautiful Mind.  Do they make you happy?  Do they bring you peace?

Recognize the light of Truth is within YOU and no where else.  Replace all attack

on others or yourself with acceptance.  It is as simple as not believing the thought!

As long as we attack and judge we cannot know the Light and we are keeping

ourselves in misery and away from salvation.    Say the following:

“I will there be Light.  Darkness is not my will” and allow Peace to flow over you.

You are Loved!

Let Love Surround You Today

Sunriver meadow

You are loved!

You may not feel loved right now but only because you need to allow it in.

Let it surround you and hold you firmly. Let it rock you gently. Feel it.

Take a breath and gently let your body feel love rocking it.

Undoing the blocks to love may make you weep. Let the tears come.

Let them run down your cheeks and heal your heart.

You are remembering the sweetness of love. It is always there.

Allow it. You are loved. YES. Love is YOU because it resides within YOU.

You have blocked it because our society does not focus on it. Even laughs at it.

That does not matter. In the quiet place of your mind you can acknowledge

love and let society go. It is not important. Not as important as love.

You can recall LOVE at any time, any place, any where, no matter what chaos is

going on around you. Go to LOVE. Be safe. Love is safe.

You are not the ego. When you listen to the ego you do not feel love.

The ego does not want you to know WHO or WHAT you are.

The ego is not YOU. Your powerful mind can choose either the ego or the Love within.

It is a choice. See it as YOUR choice.

You are Loved. It does not matter if someone else loves you are not.

You are still Loved. God is the love within.
