Jesus teachings on the 8 attitudes to follow.

The 8 Attitudes, taught be Jesus, interpreted by myself…

-Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Be grateful always. Share and give in trust, for I Am always provided for. To be poor in spirit is to manage and invest in resources wisely and not to hold on too tightly to any ideas, resources or people. A poor man of spirit gives what he cans, the means often are creative and from the heart…

-Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

We often fall for the dream of illusion and fear over the unity of oneness and love. When we feel guilty, ashamed and afraid, we act in ways that are not aligned with natural law and this feeds more guilt, shame and fear. To mourn is to acknowledge this in humility to God; for when we forgive ourselves, the light of God enters.

-Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are the simple-minded, who strive for simplicity, peace and harmony with nature, with natural law. They will be blessed with abundance and resources. Those who call and respect the earth, whom do not hoard but generously share wisdom and love will be living examples of the second coming of heaven on earth.

-Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

They shall be blessed with wisdom and a great deal of gifts that will help them fulfill their divine purpose. They who seek to know the laws and align with them will be guided because they are open and focused on knowing themselves.

-Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

When we forgive and accept one another, we free the parts of ourselves that are frozen and full of judgment, shame, guilt and fear.

-Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

When we are honest with ourselves and another, and when we work to heal our past through forgiving and accepting, we become more pure of heart. When we are aware and choose oneness over reacting out of guilt, shame and fear, it releases burdens, which makes it easier to be present. This makes it easier to see Essence, the divine nature in all beings.

-Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

God is peaceful and seeks refuge in those that match its energy. God is attracted to those that strive for unconditional love.

-Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Those that strive toward unconditional love face challenges/resistance from many sides. Rigid beliefs and God-fearing “others” oppose those that believe in the ability to be One with God, to stand for justice and peace in the face of persecution, guilt, shame and fear. Bless them for their courage inspires people.

Channeling "my" higher self

You need not fear the ego, but forgive its sometimes relentless, pitiful and justified ways. Your forgiveness tells me you are trying and for that you can love yourself for.

Habits, tendencies, and life lessons can be a challenge. To become self-realized meaning to know and act from the true self is a surmountable and courageous act, living in a dream that often feeds illusion, separation and fear, over oneness and love. Challenging it may be that doubt ensues within every spiritual warrior; as is remember- “the greatest battle with the spiritual warrior is the self” and that it doesn’t just disappear. You just become more aware and so with this doubt, you must feel it and take responsibility for your part, as it is with you and you must separate from it so that it does not become you.

Do not fall back asleep to the dream; you need not suffer no more. Stay true to yourself, for your convictions are real and can help people.

You doubt because still there is fear of completely letting go. You must let go for you will grow in it and you will see more clearly.

You doubt your tasks and what I tell you but trust what you do, as it will help regardless. Where you see fault, learn and grow to do otherwise but trust too that your presence is enough.

Thoughts meandering: integrity…ego, the global citizen…

I am not my thoughts.

It seems that one might believe it so much that they become critical, judgmental, and/or emotional to react as if everything I think, I should say. Clearly, all thoughts are not true and so, oftentimes, I ponder to myself without sharing. Oftentimes, I have few words to make sense of what I think and so when I speak, simply out of discomfort, I feel dumb.

I am comforted by what Gandhi has to say about this:

“Experience has taught me that silence if part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man, and silence is necessary in order to surmount it. A man of few words will rarely be thoughtless in his speech; he will measure every word. We find so many people impatient to talk. There is no chairman of a meeting who is not pestered with notes for permission to speak…All this talking can hardly be said to be of any benefit to the world. It is so much waste of time. My shyness has been in reality my shield and buckler. It has allowed me to grow. It has helped me in my discernment of truth.” (Gandhi, 62)

Admittedly, I often sit in discernment of my thoughts. My ego-ic parts still run a muck at times and although I am much more capable of discerning the truth from my ego, I still at times, just want to shut it up. To me, it is like hearing an abusive person tell me the lies I have been told my whole life. I am so grateful to have grown from feeding the ego-ic thoughts however, and will say that it is helpful to let them be, more so than give them energy by reacting to them.

Clearly, I need to meditate longer, or do I? I have met a good deal of powerful healers and non-reactive teachers to observe that there is that chariot in their being, a great deal of light, gifts bestowed, beside a shadow/ego that just doesn’t budge. Perhaps it is the case that we can never get rid of the ego-ic machine but rather it is the awareness of who we are that is naturally good and of service to God/love that keeps our integrity intact and in service to the higher good for all beings. It is an ego that directs itself to God, to loving and serving another to make him greater than himself that separates him from the demise of shadow.

“The most evolved soul becomes the global citizen.”

I remember hearing this at the Science and Non-Duality Conference and it makes sense to me; the more unified one becomes, the greater their compassion and ability to serve. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Bob Marley and Jesus are the most notable in mind, all of whom praise and love God.

So perhaps the most evolved soul is the one who directs his attention to the divine, to God, who grants him his abilities, to be put to use to serve the greater good.

And so he merges into oneness to be all that he can be onto this life and serve for generations to come.

Medicine along the path: The gift of being shamed

This blog is a response to a good deal of criticism and negativity that came at me from a stranger whom I haven’t met…

There is no shame to feel sad that there are indeed people who say they are working on themselves and yet continue to project blame and shame onto you as if you are “wrong” or “bad.” When they do not know you and you not them, what cause is there to make wrong but feel the pain of the world. This indeed is the pain of the world for to make “wrong” and judge what could otherwise be useful, creative energy, of service to love/God, becomes suppressed and denied, consequently manifesting as guilt, shame and fear. So the cycle continues as traumas reenact to confirm the already existing belief that what is outside is “wrong” and that what is “wrong” is hopeless.

To view the world as “hopeless” is really suppressed and/or denied creative energy manifesting as guilt, shame and fear; for to deny oneself of his/her ability to create, is, in reality, what keeps us less than realizing who we are. So some may fear to realize that who they are is more than who they are being and so may be so full of shame, that to feel would be painful and think it better to give it to someone else.

To be aware of this is to realize that although we are One along the spiritual path, to be absorbed in the shame and blame of another is to hinder One’s ability to evolve, for to get caught in the negativity will only create more illusion, more maya to heal and clear.

Therefore, pay attention to those whom speak negatively and do not allow those whom abuse the gift of your presence to be given your energy any longer. Trust and have faith that all is meant to teach and learn that who “I am” is more than what many people realize in themselves.

May this be medicine for all evolved souls on the path of spiritual growth and development.

The Law Aligns with the Unconditional Love of God…

The laws align according to those who live in harmony with the unconditional love of God.

God would not interfere with these laws, as God would not punish his children, simply for not obeying. All God does is love and yet for some, the universal laws have been confirmation to have us believe that we are separate from God, undeserving, “bad,” or unworthy of God’s love. For many, too, the wounds of separation may be so great as to shun another, and therefore themselves, in disbelief that they become unaware of the natural law and succumb to illusion instead.

Oftentimes, to share this information will only create a defended ego. The defended ego lives in illusion, all of which is suffering. Illusion masks our ability to see truth to the possibility of heaven on earth. However, it is our natural state, that who we are is divine, eternally born from heaven. On earth, we have the potential to be vehicles for God’s work, if we so choose to awaken from the illusion, and realize that heaven is indeed in the mind, in our thinking. In this knowing, we can see every minute is a choice and all choices are opportunities to awaken and choose love over fear. It will be difficult indeed for making this choice may mean surrendering one’s ego to open-heartedly accept judgement, ridicule, and shame, for the sake of unconditional love, not seemingly felt or reciprocated in return.

When love is so often mixed with fear, it is difficult to discern. However, it is what we must do, for heaven on earth is not born of fear. Such is the case for me today that in a workshop, I was ridiculed and shamed for “being late” and not saying what the “others” wanted me to say to make up for breaking my word. I was an example for many and it was not personal; however it was a long draw for at least an hour, and many people were angry and impatient. It seemed a test, and to me, it was a test to be love. In this instance, I got to observe that in whose love I felt, I was deeply moved. In whose fear I felt, I was pained. How difficult, brave and courageous it is indeed, to be love, while in witness to a people that seems to feed the belief, that to give fear is to love and necessary for us to learn…

At times like these, I am grateful to know that God’s love for me is unconditional and that the truth be known, heaven, where God lives, is within me calling me to my rescue. It is choosing loving myself over ego that I do not become callous and closed off and blaming another for not being seen. It is choosing to love myself that I become energized to give more love-unconditionally, albeit, with a good deal of forethought still, extracting truth from illusion in process.

Blessed are thee who call to heaven, out of love, and who strive to love unconditionally.

While it is true that I have still yet to perfect and manifest what I wish on demand and I still feel pain and with lessons to learn, I carry in my heart- more trust and faith. I feel blessed with wisdom and perspective, more peace, love, and compassion, and a great deal of gifts from heaven that I have never been more present to in my life. And while I hear people tell me how much I must do, I see that the being overrides doing, so that I need not do too much to manifest, but trust and have faith that all is unfolding and all will come in good time.
