A Higher Perspective

When I was growing up in the 1950s, my mom,  dad,  sister and I would all sit on the couch and watch TV together. Most of the programs were G-rated, even though that was before ratings.

When we were watching and a commercial came on, I would ask my mom, “Is the show over?” I really wanted to see the end and feared I had missed it.

She often teased me about this because I asked that so often.

Now in my adult life I still have that feeling that I am going to miss the “heaven on earth” promised by the Golden Age of Aquarius. That passes quickly as I observe little things that are the beginnings of The New Earth, NOW.

This last Sunday I woke up to a moment of Heaven on Earth as I saw the sunrise and the full moonset. I don’t often get to see the sunrise here in the mountains, as there is often cloud cover or fog in the early morning. Seeing the Full moon set is also a rarity. We had what is called here “a bluebird day.” Spectacular clear blue sky with white barked aspens, which are  leaf-less, giving a stark, beautiful backdrop to the Grand Tetons on the horizon.

I haven’t missed heaven on earth as it is here now in these serene moments that I get to receive into my awareness.

Thank you, Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature.

Sananda has taught me that we live in a holographic Universe. The great is in the small and the small in the great. Rumi has taught us that the one drop of water contains the whole ocean.

So, my dear readers, we can collect these moments and add them to the collective consciousness of heaven on earth until it is evident for all.

Don’t worry. Be happy. We didn’t miss it.

Be aware of the moments you are adding to the whole. My higher self often reminds me, “one grain of rice” — as a thought, happy feeling, compassion, joy, appreciation, being the love that you are — does add to the creation, no mater how small.

 These small actions can tip the scale to goodness for all sentient beings living on earth.

So smile today– laugh, jump, dance or Love all the good that is here just for YOU.

Mother Teresa reminds us: do small things with great love.

You will reap the reward of feeling very good. 

The videos today from Lorna Byrne demonstrate how we can help ourselves, and Mother Nature, by growing in LOVE.

LOVE, Feelings and Water

“Some people feel the Rain, others just get wet.”  – Bob Marley

When we understand our relationship with feeling, Love and Water we can make great strides in our spiritual growth.

Water is the mystical element and is a demonstration of Love in the physical realm. When we contemplate all that Water is and does the conclusion leads us straight to Love. Water can be a solid, liquid, vapor and merge so eloquently into air that it becomes an invisible dew point. In its natural state, it is colorless and tasteless. Water contains the essence of the Divine Mystery, LOVE.

A vivid reminder of the Divine Aspect of Water came to me while driving through Eastern Oregon. Driving East for miles and hours, on the left side of the highway was Badlands State Park. A very desolate landscape. So much so that you could easily see why the region was called “Bad Lands.” Very dry with no green to be seen. No visible birds or animals, desolate and depressing.

On the right side of the highway the scene was the complete opposite. Wind turbines had provided the electricity to pump Water from the nearby creek to create a lush and thriving green farming landscape. Lots of activity with the prosperous feeling of a rich farm and cattle ranch. The flowers, green alfalfa, horses and bustling farm activities made me feel happy. Water had turned The so-called Badlands into a beautiful and productive lively landscape.

We know this to be true, that Water is life. An important part of our spiritual growth is to let Water help us heal our emotional body, our feelings. Our feelings, our Love nature, hold the keys to our connections with our truth and our own mystical Divinity. Water is One, and connects us with all that is. The Persian poet Rumi remarks: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” We are like that. We are one with All in our spirit. Water teaches us that oneness.

One of my favorite articles about Water is found in Restoring the Earth: Visionary Solutions from the Bioneers, by Kenny Ausubel. A contributing author is Jennifer Greene. Though her article is only 10 pages long it is concentrated wisdom of the holy aspects of Water gleaned from a lifetime of studying Water. Each time I read her article I learn something more and am inspired to do more of my own research with Water as Love and the Divine Mystery. Water, Love, is always available and part of me—Oneness in form.

The introductory paragraph holds the keys to the profound beingness of Water.

In this sacred element of nature, she reveals a magical dance of cosmic forces played out through this remarkable vessel of universal dissolution that is so forgiving, yet powerful enough to wear down a rock over time with its Watery persistence.

We can hold our glass of Water with Love and gratitude and make that Water more pure, and healthful and add to the Love of all Water.  As we respect and Love Water, our own feeling nature will be healed and will contribute to the healing of humanity and Grandmother Earth.
