Fear



What do we have to fear? Nothing!
Whom do we have to fear? No-one!
Do you know why?
Consciously becoming one again with our Highest Self,
Gives us three great privileges:
Omnipotence and practising it safely in the knowledge
That true Power is with God alone,
And that this God, the living God within, will always
Show us where and how to do so.
This makes us feel intoxicated without needing any wine.
And because we have come home into the awareness
That we are eternal beings of light and immortal,
There no longer is any death for us,
Merely transformations
From one life-state into another.

St. Francis of Assisi

You Are Special



Whenever the mind of our small earthly self – or someone in our environment – tries to convince us that we are a small, useless and worthless human specimen, it is good and right to take the part of our Highest or God Self and reply: ‘That’s what you think, but you are wrong. It’s not that you are lying to me. Your belief is a false one and you are merely saying such things because you do not yet understand your own true nature and the purpose and meaning of our earthly existence.’

The truth of the matter is that every one of us in their own way is a special and unique being, who is precious and loved beyond compare. In the entire history of the whole of Creation there has never been and never will be another being quite like me. My eyes, hands, hair, handwriting, smile, voice and mind are unique to me. No-one walks, talks, thinks, acts or even meditates exactly the way I do. Nobody can paint my brush strokes or has exactly the same taste as I have for food, music, dance and other artistic endeavours. Nobody can perceive things quite the way I do and no-one can feel my feelings. And there has never been someone who laughs exactly the way I do, and what makes me laugh or cry can have quite a different effect on someone else.

Each one of us is different from everybody else who ever walked the Earth and all of are specially gifted in some way. Even if others pursue the same creative activities as mine, everybody has their own special and unique way of expressing themselves. In the course of our evolution as individuals and many lifetimes, every human soul develops its own set of abilities and it is likely that there will always be someone who is better at some things than I am and superior to me in at least one way. And this applies to each one of us.

The Great White Spirit, our Father/Mother Creator, has provided each one of its children of the Earth with a different set of gifts and talents that have taken many lifetimes to develop. Therefore, it is important to be grateful for them. We have been granted the gift of another lifetime to take good care of them and further develop them, to the best of our ability. The whole range of that which has been bestowed upon us produces a vibration and a sound that is uniquely our own. The entire human race is like a room filled with billions of musical instruments. Listening to the symphony we are producing together, we may at times get a sneaking feeling that some of the instruments in some way sound better than ours. Do not allow yourself to be disturbed by this, as this is intentional due to the fact that every instruments is a unique creation. This ensures that no-one matches exactly anyone else’s sound. No matter how hard we may try to sound alike, it’s impossible.

We are all tiny particles of a vast whole, and the functioning of one is as important as that of all the others for the wellbeing of the whole. Every single one of us is rare and precious in the eyes of our Creator, who holds the Great Plan of life in His/Her loving hands and designed us to be exactly the way we are. And whatever anyone imagines this being to be, even the greatest sceptic is bound to admit that we and our world cannot have appeared out of nowhere.

Humankind is not some kind of a random and haphazard appearance or cosmic joke. All of us are in this life so that we may learn to love, appreciate and accept ourselves, just the way we are, because that is the way our true Father/Mother, who loves us totally and unconditionally, wants us to be. Everybody contains the seed of perfection and the only thing anyone has to do to achieve it, is to constantly give of the best they are capable of. This is the only way ever more of our Divine qualities can gradually be brought forth from within the very core of our own being.

Wherever we may find ourselves, we are always at the right time in the right spot. We have been placed there to do our share of making our planet a better, happier, more peaceful and beautiful place for all its inhabitants, including ourselves. At this special time of transition from one age into another, each one of us is expected to fulfil one specific task on the Earth plane. It is a job that can only be carried out by us and which is rightfully ours is waiting to be found and worked on. For this purpose it is essential that we follow the guidance we receive from the wise one or the living God within, who at any given moment reveals its presence to us through the world of our feelings and our natural inclinations. We are in this life to dream and pursue our own dreams and not those of others, no matter how dear they may be to those around us – even our parents or grandparents.

Only by never imitating others can we hope to be true to our real and Highest Self and find our special assignment. Through acting in accordance with Its will and desires, refusing to follow the drives and urges of our lower earthly nature, whilst giving of our best at all times, hand in hand with God and the Angels each one of us is meant to develop their own precious and unique set of gifts to its highest potential and full flowering.

The whole process is a bit like applying for a job, but this time we shall be luckier than we have ever been before. Just imagine, out of the billions of potential applicants we alone have the right qualifications. What more could anyone ask for? However, the fulfilment we are seeking on the Earth plane is not going to drop into anyone’s lap like Manna from the Heavens. Insisting on living selfishly and seeing life as an endless round of pleasure-seeking is not the way, that’s for sure. But we cannot fail when we strive to work for the good of the whole and allow ourselves to be guided by our innermost feelings, highest aspirations, hopes, ideals and dreams.

We are living in exciting times and we are on the Earth plane to learn how to reach out for the guiding, helping and protecting hand of the Highest Authority and the Brightest Light in the whole of Creation – nothing else is now good enough. Although some are finding this difficult, persevering is worth our while as this is our opportunity to learn once again to walk in safety and peace on our beloved planet and to evolve into one of its healers, guardians and keepers. Hand in hand with God and the Angels, each has to make their contribution to the blessing and healing of Mother Earth and all her Kingdoms. Writing this for you is part of mine.

Everybody eventually has to learn how to take care of the welfare of our world, so that it slowly evolves into a better place for everybody and everything that shares this life with us. This is by no means entirely unselfish, because although we are presently working for future generations, let us not forget that in coming lifetimes we may once again be walking amongst them in a different guise. And if that does not make every small effort we make worth while, then please tell me what is.

The following is the essence of a teaching of the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in Stella Polaris December/January 2010. It came to me as a confirmation I had written the above a long time ago. ‘Each one of you has their own special part to play in bringing greater light, i.e. spiritual understanding to your world. When you manifest and express God’s love in your daily lives and hold communion with it in the innermost sanctuary of your heart, you radiate and bring this love to the people around you. Your responsibility towards them gradually increases and so will the wisdom and knowledge you are given access to. God is part of each one of you and all of you are instruments and channels through which the blessing and healing power of the Divine infinite spirit is waiting to flow into your world.’

Eternity



Eternity is not the hereafter
And has nothing to do with time.
Every moment we live is part of Eternity.
It is the functioning of our existence
As it unfolds every moment in the here and now.
If we don’t get that here,
We shall not get it anywhere.
The world of spirit is not the place
Where it can be experienced,
That can only be done here.

Joseph Campbell

Do It Now



It isn’t the things we do, my Friend,
It’s those that are left undone,
That cause us most heartache,
At the setting of the Sun.

The tender words forgotten,
The letters we didn’t write,
The flowers we did not send
Become haunting ghosts at night.

The stones we could have lifted
Out of another’s way.
The words of heart-felt counsel
We didn’t take time to say.

The loving touch of a hand,
The warm and gentle tone,
We neither had time nor thought for,
Having troubles enough of our own.

The little acts of kindness,
That so easily slip from one’s mind
Are the only chances of acting like Angels
We poor mortals find.

They come in night and silence,
Those sad, reproachful wraiths,
When hope is faint and flagging,
And a chill is falling on our faith.

Earth life is all too short, my Friend,
And this world’s sorrows are too great,
To put up with a slow compassion
That tarries, until it’s too late.

That’s why it isn’t the thing we do,
But those that are left undone
That give us most of the heartache,
At the setting of the Sun.

The Greatest Glory



Life is a gift, so make it count and never give up on what you believe in. Be brave and make mistakes, because they teach us more than our successes. Instead of feeling bad about them, it is better by far to appreciate our blunders for helping us to become better people and to acknowledge that our successes in life could only grow from what we learnt from our slip-ups.

The greatest glory is not in never falling,
But in rising again, each time we fall.
Confucius 551-479 BC

Therefore, only look down on someone when you are giving them a helping hand to get up.

Changing The World
Do not try to change the world,
For you would fail.
Try to love it instead
And lo, you will see that
The world is changed
And that forever.


Sri Chinmoy


* * *


If we try to change our world
Without first changing ourselves, we are sure to fail.
But when we come to terms with its true purpose
And perceive it in a new light, we learn to love it and
For us, quite magically, the world changes forever.

As our inner eyes open, we begin to recognise
The good in all people and situations.
Our heart and soul then fills with compassion and love
For those who, trapped in the darkness of
Their ignorance and greed, still insist on creating suffering,
Maybe for millions, and therefore negative Karma for themselves.
We no longer sit in judgement over anyone
And that helps us to create ever more positive Karma
For ourselves and our world.


Aquarius
