A collection of view points, stories, and observations for your discernment
body sees the world from a different view point. Everybody has
their own ideas about what they see. A person's point of view
is effected by everything they ever did or learned in their lives and
because everybody has their own unique life, the way they each of us
view a situation may not be in agreement. Truth is truth
and stands in any light and any situation, under any rules. Does
this mean then that philosophies and opinions are not truth? If
view points and philosophies do not agree with each other, then what
are these things we call points of view? Are they only paths
to take in search of truth? Like different bus lines in a city
that eventually all end up at the central terminal in town, regardless
of where their scheduled stops took them? For as long as
we have been thinking beings, we have been trying to convince the world
that our view point is the one and only way to go. We do it on
a grand scale at time employing the name of God in our cause.
The Catholic Church was a great one for pushing their view point, to
the extent that they sent out armies to kill the infidels. People
who just did not think like they did. Innocent people who did
nothing except worship a different way, to the same God. So they
call their god Allah, or Buddha, or the great pumpkin, or what ever,
but it is still the God force they are involved with. Just
a few years back a big time leader of Islam put out a death contract
on some poor stiff for writing a very interesting and amusing book that
did not agree with what this "messenger from Allah" happened to fancy.
The Catholics, Muslims, misc. Christian groups, all are still engaged
in this same conflict of view point and still killing those who don't
agree with them. How can this be doing God's will?
How many Southern Baptists have worn the white sheet and hood in persecution
of some body who just happened to be a different color, on the out side?
How many Irish Priests are engaged in the horrible things going on in
that country in the name of God. Here are two Christian denominations
fighting and killing each other, just because they think their way is
better and should be the way for all. I am not knocking
organized religions at all, i am only knocking the old energy thinking,
driven by fear that these organizations still harbor. Organized
religion is the way of the world to date for almost every country on
earth. They are necessary for early education and connection to
knowledge of things spiritual. It only seems that they,
as individuals do not practice what they preach. Look at Jim Bakker,
Jesse Jackson, Jimmy Swaggart, and all the rest of the hypocritical
bible thumpers in the world making millions of dollars from trusting
believing followers? Is that something that is preached in the
teachings of Christianity? What did Jesus say about riches?
How big was Jesus' mansion? How many servants did he have on the
pay roll? How much did he rake in every year? Did his dog
have an $5,000 air conditioned dog house, like Tammy Fae's little pooch?
Does anybody else see anything wrong with this picture?

Good and Bad
The older i get the more i see how relativity plays in my life.
As we grow and our needs and desires change. Our tastes may even
change. The type of music we like, or the way we wear our hair.
What we like and dislike may change as well as we grow and experience
life. How can this be? We are the same person as we were,
are we not? I don't know, you tell me. They say the
life of a body cell is only around 7 years. Well that means that
i have had about seven body changes in my life so. Which
one of those bodies is me? I feel like the that "old ax"
that had been in this one family for 200 years. The handle
had been replaced 4 times and the head had been replaced twice, but
some how the old guy still gave it credit for being 200 years old, and
in the family that long.
Notes from home
Over the last
few years or so, as the grid has shifted and i have become more
sensitive to spiritual influences i started finding little notes that
i had written to myself the night before, or earlier. These notes
were never very long, and most times only a few words. I rarely
remember anything concerning their creation but most of the time i just
discover them amid the perpetual rubble on my desk. I can
remember my very first one, which was, "Fragment your ego." I
had no idea what it meant at the time and i have come to the realization
that the more i understand of this enigmatic phrase, the more i discover
how much more there is yet undiscovered. Among other
things it has enabled me to get in touch with past life skills and knowledge
by just calling up the personality, the fragment of my ego that used
to know these things. Some times the notes are more on a level
of a saying or motto. When ever i find these little notes
from home, i always study them and save them. They often do not
make any sense at the time, like the Fragment ego one, for example.
However eventually they absorb enough data around them to enable me
to see the patterns being woven by the turn of events following the
message. Everything is answered in time. I have learned
that if i can not figure it out, then that means i am not ready to yet.
Hang out and do something else and when it is appreciate, i will zip
right through the task like i have been doing it for years.
Teachers and Students
I am tool user. I need
tools, to do things better than others. If i don't have
them, I'll make them. If they do not exist then i will invent
Learn the instrument, not the
tune. When the instrument disappears, it is then the music
Music is a common language spoken
by many varied and diverse people of different tongues. Regardless
of the strangeness of the spoken words, like love, it is understood
by all who hear.
if power does not make you humble,
then you have no business using that power. If control does not
inspire you to serve and help others, then you should not be in control.
If not me, who?
If not now, when? When you know the answer to both of these
questions, then you have earned the right to complain about things that
annoy you, but not before.
Absence of fear
After doing your best and struggling against
all odds during your life to achieve your little piece of the dream.
After trying again and again and failing, you still persist and keep at
it, never giving up. After doing everything you possibly could all
your life long, you Still, finally come to the realization that your life
was really spent running in circles and you haven't accomplished anything...
big deal, so what? You'll get it right next time around, don't worry
about it. The trip was the treasure, not the accomplished goals,
they are only trophies of the mile stones in the grand adventure, remembrances
of all the people and lives you touched getting to this point. You
may never know the good you did in some body else's life. How many
people you helped down their road to success. You can be sure your's
was not REALLY wasted. You are looking through the little
window instead of the big one.
Ripples in the pond
I like to think of our lives here together like ripples in a pond. We are all making little ripples in the still waters. Every deed we do is like tossing a stone out into the calm still water. The stone sends out a ripple in all directions. These ripples interact with ripples made by other lives and contracts dropping into the waters of the pond. Once you see your stone sink in a little splash and kerplunk. You do not think of the ripple. You tossed the stone, and now the stone is gone so you move on too, not thinking of the ripple the stone has made. That ripple keeps going outward, toward the shore, and as it passes the ripples made by all the other stones, tossed by all the other lives that touch, intermingling and changing the shape of both, as they pass through each other. By the time your ripple reaches the shore, it has passed through the waves of many many others, changing each a little and being changed in return. What sort of stones am i throwing out into the pond? Are they love, kindness, understanding, compassion, tolerance, or are they something else. I really need to know the answer to that because when my ripple reaches the shore, i need to claim it and be identified by it. What has your ripple passed on to the others that it touched? You may never know in this life time, so it is best not even to pick up the stones from the ground that look like fear, distrust, hatred, prejudice, ignorance. You do not need to be tossing those in anybody's wake. You have free choice now, pass them by and toss the loving stones that make others "feel at home" when your ripple passes through theirs. Once the stone is tossed, even retrieving it will not halt the ripple it caused to flow outward. In the words of Omar Khayaam:
"The moving finger writes,
Splash and play and make happy waves in the big pond of ours. (love makes the best waves ever)
Hints and nudges
Our guides, teachers, angels, what ever you want to call them are constantly
giving us nudges and hints on the problems and decisions in our lives.
There are not too many things that can slip through the veil but these
hints are one. One of the most effective and frequent of
these hints involves repetitive number sequences. They can be
numbers on the face of a digital clock or a license plate, or a shipping
crate. It does not matter where you spot them, they are hints
that tell pass us messages from spirit, through the veil.
I am not speaking of checking the clock every two minutes just so you
can catch a number, i am speaking of casual glances at a clock or other
display of numbers. Not deliberate, but just casual or even
accidental. Often i wake from a sound
sleep to see my bedside clock with 11:11, 12:12, 2:22, 5:55, etc.
Or casually glance at the digital clock anywhere i happen to be and
see these repetitive number sequences. It was a great puzzle
to me when it first started happening back in the early 90's and
i knew it was a message from spirit right from the start because it
went so far beyond the limits of probability that it could not be simple
coincidence. I would catch 11:11 sometimes 10 times during the
11:11 Beginning of a whole new level or phase of development. Another dimension or frequency of experience opening. A way or path opening for you. Stargate 11:11
