RUMI KNEW





    I agree with Rumi; everything you need is within your own heart. Even the Bible says that "we" are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Temples and churches are beautiful, but where did man ever get the idea that God just hangs out in a building waiting for us to show up? It would make much more sense for the Divine Spirit to dwell in that which is a reflection of itself.

THE SOUND OF TRUTH




-Channeled Message received 3-18-2013 @ 3:00 PM-


    Looking to man for spiritual authority will often lead to ponderous burdens upon the soul. Looking to Spirit will bring freedom, joy and lightness. Yet when an individual learns to teach in harmony with the truths of Spirit, he or she will be considered wise. You shall always know the truth when you hear it, for it will give your heart wings and lift you up. It shall evoke no fear nor condemn any person; it will radiate with love, tolerance and peace.

KNOWING or KNOWING ABOUT?




    Don't try to fit the Divine Spirit into your ideas and concepts. God is bigger than our limited understanding, and spirituality is a relationship, not a classroom of dogmas and opinions. Would it be a fair assessment if no one ever got to know you, yet made all kinds of broad statements about what your personality were like? Don't go by rule books, religions or popular views. Don't even go with your own colored opinions on what God might be like... Instead, meditate, pray, have a conversation and ask questions. You may very well be surprised at how the answers will come! This journey on the spiritual path is interactive and a partnership. The one who set the journey in motion need not be shrouded in mystery, fear and complete non-understanding. Although we may not be able to ascertain all the answers from our finite perspective at this time; we can gather certain facts and information that can bring us a lifetime of peace and comfort. Don't be satisfied just to "know about" the Divine, but seek to know it personally. There is a big difference between the two.

THE PURPOSE OF BEING



   
    We are not pawns put here by some cruel chess master; nor have we come into being to undergo suffering disease and trials. We are here to make a journey, a journey back to our Creator. We may not know all of the hows, whys and whens but one thing is clear... we are here for a purpose. Perhaps that purpose is as grand as to realize the divine power within ourselves and one day soar like the angels above the confines of this material existence; or maybe it is as simple as learning how to love unconditionally. It matters not what our reason for being is, and most of us will never come to know it in a lifetime. But we can keep our attention focused on the higher realms of being and aspire to be like the one who put us here. In doing this with a sincere heart, we will in fact change our lives and those small crevices of the world that we may touch in our daily affairs. And by doing this, we will at least in some small way fulfill our higher purpose, leaving this world a better place than we found it.

THE ULTIMATE COMFORT




    Every human being is free to believe what they wish to believe. But for me, there is no hope in a religion that belives not in the eternal spirit of the individual. For what is spirituality without spirit? Are we to believe that God is some impersonal energy source that formed our complex universe out of some static law of cause and effect? Is the purpose of mankind to return to the dust after his body perishes or to merge with the universe like a mindless drop of water returning to the ocean? I believe that the cosmos is more multifarious than this, and the purpose of man more than just death and decay. I have seen spirits with my own two eyes, and there was no mistaking that they were present. But more than this, if we look at the wonders of nature that exist, even on our tiny planet; it soon becomes abundantly clear that something more than just mere law or chance was involved in its forming. And what better comfort is there in this life than to know that something, somewhere created us, reflects itself through us and loves us? What greater peace can there be than the thought that God wants us and desires to be with us, and one day will welcome us home to a place that is beyond our limited words to describe.

LIGHT IN A DARK WORLD




   In all that you do today, do it with honesty and integrity. Treat others well and keep your word when you give it. Speak the truth and do not compromise your morals. Do not go with the crowd but have the strengh to be yourself. Don't be afraid to say no and stand up for what is right... Be a light in a dark world and overcome evil with good.

THERE CAN BE WORLD PEACE




     There are those who rule with selfish intent, and there are those who live with honest intentions. When those who rule with selfish intent begin to oppress, destroy, lie and manipulate; it is time for those who are honest to bond together and make sure that those who are deceitful are removed from the place of power. This is not done with war, hatred and weapons of mass destruction. But rather it is done in wisdom and peace. The truly wise person will use his voice for change; the truly wise leader will make sure that there are laws that ensure that change is possible when it is needed. There need not be bloodshed, war and upheavel. There need not be oppression, greed and dishonest gain for the chosen few. There need not be the exchange of billions of dollars between national leaders while the common man and woman suffer lack and hardship. There need only be wisdom, love  and kindness... then all else would fall into place.

THERE'S NO ONE BETTER




    Don't ever feel bad about yourself or put yourself down. No one is really any better than anyone else in this world because we're all the same inside. Just because someone else may be thinner, have more money or a higher paying job doesn't make them better. The old saying that goes, "you can't take it with you when you die," is very true. When our bodies cease to function, our spiritual selves will depart this world, and our former looks, wealth or social position will not matter anymore. We are all spiritual beings and all pretty much have the same thoughts, concerns and emotions. Material substances and the reflection in the mirror cannot make us better than anyone else, they just fill a three dimensional space for a time. Then we will return to our true form which is spirit. And spiritually we are all one with everyone and everything... None of us are better then anyone else, we just are.

ARE WE WISER IN THE NEW MODERN WORLD?




    The topic of today's blog may be a little deeper than usual, and there may be some folks who disagree... and that is fine. The question I pose today is this; are we wiser in the new modern world? I ask this because despite all of our new technologies and advances in science it seems we are becoming more complacent, easily led and dishonest. Politicians all over the world take seats of power and then try to rule countries according to their own agendas. They care not if the people are are poor, hungry and the nation teeters on economic callapse. Scientists, historians and archeologists many times feed us information that has been tweaked according to their personal viewpoint instead of what true facts present. A few examples of this is the very popular views that spiritual leaders such as Jesus Christ, Buddha and even Muhammad never existed... and this is just to name a few. We are told that such horrible incidents like the Jewish Holocaust never happened. Some even propose that Adolph Hitler was misunderstood and not such a bad guy. This list goes on and on of how such things have shaped the opinions and world view of many. After all, if someone has a phd after his or her name, or several other letters, it must be right?

    And so as we look at the new modern world and the direction in which we are all headed, I ask again: Are we wiser? Are we headed in the right direction? Should we trust some of the information coming our way as if it were gospel truth? Can we trust modern man with our well being, faith and even our mortal souls? This is a question that we each must ask ourselves, and we will all come up with different answers. I for one, believe that we are being worn down little by little by the barrage of dishonety, distorted facts warped agendas. I do not think that bigger computers, fancy tablets and smart phones are making us smarter at all.... But then again, that's just my opinion.

ZYPHRYN 9




    As I went on a quest into town the other night to fetch a gallon of milk and a candy bar, I happened to get into a conversation with a couple of guys who were on the checkout line. It turned out that these guys were in a local band called Zyphryn 9 and they had just put out their first album. As the conversation spilled over into the parking lot, local rocker RC didn't hesitate to whip his ipod out of his car and give me a sampling of Z 9's music. What I heard were a couple of instrumental tracks that sounded fairly well put together. RC and his fellow band mate went on to explain that their album was a mix of instrumentals and songs with lyrical content.

    Aside from the instrumental samplings that I heard in the parking lot, I have not listened to anything from Z 9's album... yet. But I will very, very soon. I like to support the local talent and so I thought it would be fun to blog about their album, and then maybe some of us can all hear it together and give them our opinions on Amazon.com

Below is a link where you can preview and purchase the entire Zyphryn 9 album.... I'll see you all on Saturn!

INSPIRED BY SPIRIT




- Channeled Message 3-16-2013 5:39 am -
 
 
 
 
Religion comes from within the heart, not instilled into the head.
 
As with many things in life; what comes from without is often false and manmade
 
what comes from within is true and Spirit inspired.

BENEATH THE COPPER MOON




    Sharing a poem today;



 
BENEATH THE COPPER MOON

 
Bronze moonbeams spotlight the hills
encrusting dreams in a shell of regret;
Dust drifts across the night
exiting the scene like those long departed.
Desert mood bleaches my emotions
like dried bones blanched by the sun.
No shadow traces my steps
I have abandoned myself;
The angels mock this cursed land
and leave me to a hell of my own making.
Summer’s last breath sighs on the wind
as distant stars shed diamond tears.
Orion’s bow is broken by anguish
as I turn to stone beneath the copper moon.

LIGHT A CANDLE TONIGHT



    Light a candle tonight, close your eyes and just let yourself sink into the santuary within. You may sit in the silence and observe your thoughts, contemplate your oness with the Divine, or just imagine you are sitting in a peaceful temple. Even taking ten minutes to do this each evening will leave you feeling refreshed, renewed and more mentally and spiritually alive.



 

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM




    Don't ever let anyone tell you that something can't be done. You can do and be anything you want to be. We only fail when we convince ourselves that other people are right about our dreams being impossible to achieve. But the good news is, nothing is impossible. With time, determination and little faith, nothing is impossible. Why not attempt to make a dream come true today.

WHOSE THOUGHTS ARE THEY ANYWAY?




    Without a human perception to promote it, fear would be almost non-existent. Is there fear in the mind of God? Of course not, it is our creation and brought on by the way we view certain circumstances. There is a certain level of fear that is healthy, that which produces the fight or flight response when we are in physical danger. But then there is the fear that is unessecary like; fear of the dark, fear of the dentist or doctor, fear of bridges or lady bugs etc... What fears do you have that would make your life easier if you did not have them? Think about them and see if you can't trace back where they came from. Usually that lifelong fear is not your idea, but rather the irrational idea of someone else who past it onto you in from their own worrisome life. Find out where you stand on these fearful issues, and then reject the uneasiness that has been planted within your psychi by others.

LAUGHING DOWN LONELY CANYONS




    I've shared this poem around the internet today, and I thought it would be nice to end the day by sharing it here. I wrote this yesterday and really enjoy the feel of it... I hope you do too.



LAUGHING DOWN LONELY CANYONS

 
Midnight creeps in under the guise of candlelight
throwing specters across the room
and dancing on the walls.
Night like a tomb seals my fate,
as isolation screams in shouting silence.
Looking for a window in a house of tears,
no hope flickers in the opaque future.
Life’s cruel joke delivers its punch line
in a fashion that cuts my soul to the bone.
No one here but the ghost of myself
mocking my own shadow
and laughing down lonely canyons.
 


ROADS




    Just because someone walks a different spiritual path, does not make them wrong. There are many roads in life that lead to the same destination. We should all support and learn from one another in our travels.
