The lid is open...glean what wisdom you can
"Live not in ignorance. Do not waste your precious life span in differentiating and judging your fellow men, but learn to long for the love of God. Even in the midst of your worldly activities, live only to find and realise your true Identity with your Beloved God. Be pure and simple, and love all because all are one. Live a sincere life; be natural, and be honest with yourself." - Meher Baba.
~ Be a Light in the Darkness ~
Well, this is the ultimate challenge. Until then...
“I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there’s a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it get, stick your chest out, keep ya head up...and handle it.” - Tupac Shakur.
"Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up...This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed." - Terence McKenna.
I am going to provide a list of contents for easier navigation some time in the future as well. The themes may generally be described as follows:
Love vs fear
I have decided to display them on my website primarily for any readers of my books who wish to make use of them and explore the subjects on which I have written in more depth.
Thus it is said:
The path into the light seems dark,
the path forward seems to go back,
the direct path seems long,
...true power seems weak,
true purity seems tarnished,
true steadfastness seems changeable,
true clarity seems obscure,
the greatest art seems unsophisticated,
the greatest love seems indifferent,
the greatest wisdom seems childish.
The Tao is nowhere to be found.
Yet it nourishes and completes all things.
- Laozi (Ch 45)
“There is no greater misfortune than underestimating your enemy. Underestimating your enemy means thinking that he is evil. Thus you destroy your three treasures (simplicity, patience, compassion) and become an enemy yourself.” - Laozi.
Look in the mirror first. The sage knows (is centred in) the Light but keeps to the dark (transforming it).
Humanity, as a race, exists essentially to develop emotionally and, through this, the love that is 'Christ.' We will spread out across the universe engaging those of the dark, identified with the power aspect of God and patriarchy, and bring...them into the Light of God/dess. Thus, the intergalactic wars will finally be resolved. These 'Jedi knights' will know both dark and Light thru their experience, and bring love and wisdom to all, showing no fear, but through surrender to the outer forms allowing the Creator's Light, the power of love rather than love of power to shine forth. Humans have been inheriting power to control the masses but the sorcerers and dark spirits hiding in the shadows are the ones who call the shots. Since the dark ones won the war in Atlantis, we have been kept down in lower vibrations - that is why people have been stuck in their egos, separated. Now the Light is returning, human consciousness is being lifted up. This world is only a holographic illusion so our true nature is not of this world but that of loving oneness. This planet will no longer be for those who wish to stay in fear and identify with the 3D physical body. The 6th race is being birthed, so there is to be an entirely new humanity, not so stuck in their heads! The Second Coming: millions of Christs are hatching from their old lives.
- Tell me a story...
- Only we can keep ourselves from drowning in the sea of life....
- Yes, I see the resemblance now! Mmm...I had a desperate couple of days. Feels like I woke up this morning and picked myself up without the need for mouth-to-mouth resuscitation! Phew! ;)
What we need to do to achieve that connection is to clear out that cess pit level of low vibration. And so we draw into our lives people, experiences, what have you, that make sure that we can no longer do that, that this has to come out and be processed. And we have to clean out this emotional debris that’s disconnecting us from who we really are.
If we’re prepared to walk this journey, take a step back and realise that it’s actually an experience that is going to set us free rather than a really negative bad thing or at least something to do with the fact that we’re not good people – must have done something terrible in a previous life; I hear that all the time – these challenges are to help set us free by clearing us out. It’s important we understand that.” – Author unknown (from the web).
The noble character traits of tolerance, patience, compassion, mercy and fairness are honed on a playing field of struggle and striving. There are tasks you must master on this path that develop these God-like character qualities. Challenging circumstances are given you to stimulate your higher self to influence your evolutionary animal nature.These natures are designed to eventually harmonise, and your decisions indicate how well integrated these two divergent natures are.Growing into an eternal child of the universe starts here. The physical life is rugged and full of unknowns that colour how you respond to your environment. Yet you receive celestial universal help along the way.
More and more look at your lives with the universe view. It will help you get on through this lifetime in the physical form. You are growing a little each day through these choices of living on a world that deviated from the divine path in ancient times.As you ponder these ideas and shift your awareness to your universal self, know that Christ consciousness is your goal. You will be successful progressing level to level, from uncertainty to wisdom on the path of eternal life. You will always be experiencing something unique, and what joys that adds to your life!” - Our Divine Mother (10 October 2010, Centre For Christ Consciousness, www.ctrforchristcon.org).
"Every experience you have in this lifetime was written for you to grow into the light you were meant to become." - Suzy Kassem.
“What a difference you will find when you arrive in the higher dimensions where there is harmony and peace, such a gentle energy that you can feel it totally embracing you. Each soul you meet will surround you in their love, and you could hardly imagine such a beautiful peaceful feeling. You will feel as if you are floating around on a cloud of gossamer. There is not the slightest presence of discord or negativity, and the joy of being there is an ecstatic experience. Whereas the Earth has become your living Hell, so the higher dimensions will be your Heaven. What you can be assured of is that every soul you meet, is there through having raised their vibrations to those higher levels. You cannot therefore meet with Beings of a lesser vibration, who will have found their own levels elsewhere.” - SaLuSa(channelled through Mike Quinsey, 19 January 2011).
about the little things in life,
never stop dreaming
or give in to strife.
Never stop building bridges
that lead to promising tomorrows,
never stop trying
or give in to sorrows.
Never stop smiling
and looking forward to each new day,
But most of all my friend…
never stop shining in you own special way.
Never forget that all storms can clear,
the grayest sky can turn pure blue.
Remember, brighter tomorrows are near…
And of course, I’m always here for you.

“Someone asked, ‘Why is there suffering?’ Baba gave this succinct reply: ‘Suffering is essential for the elimination of the ego, just as it was necessary for you to scrub and scrub in order to wash the stain from my coat.’" - Meher Baba.
“You will not just be moving to a new level of existence where all fears, all doubts, and all anxieties have dissolved and all that you could possibly ever need or desire is abundantly and freely available, but to a level where peace, harmony, perfection and beauty of such an intense nature preside that not even a thought of a need or a desire could ever occur to you. You will be creating with your Father a state of endlessly uplifting wonder as you uncover within yourselves new skills, new talents, and new abilities to extend Reality continuously for your ever-increasing delight.
It is God’s Will and yours that you awaken to enjoy the infinite divine wonders with which your talents and abilities constantly present you. You were created solely for the joy, the happiness, the ecstasy, and the bliss that existence at One with God provides for you eternally. Your diversion into the dream of separation has demonstrated very convincingly for you the insanity of attempting to separate yourselves from God, and that dream, that nightmare of horror, suffering, privation, and, yes, at times, despair is to evaporate or fade away like a wraith that you were not even sure you saw. Not the slightest fragment of that horrendous illusion will ever again unsettle or disturb you once you awaken into the glorious wonder of your Father’s loving Presence. All are saved, all will awaken, because all are already at Home in God, and the impetus to become awake and experience that state is irresistible.”

“The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.” - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.
“Spirituality lies not in the power to heal others, to perform miracles, or to astound the world with our wisdom, but in the ability to endure with right attitude whatever crosses we have to face in our daily lives, and thus to rise above them.” - Sri Daya Mata Ji.
“Thank you for the tragedy, I need it for my art.” - Kurt Cobain.
“Spirituality is about authenticity. It is about embracing what is, even if what is, is painful. This is a shock to people who seek spirituality as a way to turn away from pain. We have begun to dance in the shadow of spirituality if we try to use it to bypass the pain that we feel. True spirituality calls for us to be braver than this. It calls us to recognize the magnificence of our being to such a degree that we do not run from what scares us. It calls for us to go deeper. And so I shall… Will you?” - Teal Scott (A Call To Go Deeper).
Quotes from Emmanuel’s Book III
By Pat Rodegast and Judith Stanton
“Things take different forms, but they are not the form they take. You all take different forms. You are not the forms you take.”
“Whatever your predicament may be, YES will not solve it. It will dissolve it. YES is not obedience or acquiescence. It is an embrace.”“Be present in your suffering. Do not try to avoid it. When you are not present, illusion is given the chance to build enormous storm clouds of terror. Say YES to whatever is there before you. See what happens to terror when you jump into the middle of it. Find out what happens to pain when you accept it.”
“There is no one way to live your life. There is only the step-by-step adventure with no knowable distant plan. When one is saying YES, it does not matter upon what the foot rests at a step’s completion. Wherever it is, it will be the perfect place to say YES again.”
“Here is a practice to help you familiarize yourselves with the gifts of this flowing and transcendent word – YES:
Sit in your inner silence for a time and breathe the word YES in and out of your heart. Allow the mind to soften its hold. As you allow yourselves to experience physically breathing into the next moment of YES, you will find your belly and chest filling, softening all the No’s you ever learned to say. Let the knowings of comfort, of truth, of Love come to you, and receive them as your own. Let YES become your mantra, your magical key, your silent friend.
Can I will myself to say YES?
You can will yourself to say anything, but you cannot will yourself to believe in it. The first time you said No, you didn’t believe it either, nor the second, nor the third. It was just behaviour. With repetition, it becomes a habit and, finally, it comes to be a point of self-identification. So go ahead and will yourself to say YES.
Mind will tell you, ‘But I don’t believe it.’ Reassure mind, ‘It’s all right, just say it again.’ Mind will balk. ‘What are you doing? I don’t even know what the word means here.’
You peacefully answer, ‘YES.’
This depth of acceptance has to be a conscious, sometimes forced decision in the beginning. You are going against the habits of a lifetime. You are not aware of those times when you close your heart and say No only because it is such a highly developed skill at this point that it has become something you do without thinking.
YES requires practice.
Faith requires practice.
The allowing of Love requires practice.
It is all a choice.
Let me tell you something encouraging. For every YES you say, there is much more than one No that is cancelled.
One might consider it as though one day of YEAS cancels out three years of NAYS, just as one moment of Love can erase forever all the hate one has held in one’s heart. YES!
In the beginning your YES requires will. It demands courage. The YES may last as long as it takes you to say that three-letter word and then it will vanish.
Say it again. Find yourself a talisman to remind you. Some of you have those unfortunate watches that sound the hour. Utilize even that. ‘Aha, the bell of awakening, I will say YES now.’
Mind wonders, ‘How do I know what I am saying YES to?’
You don’t, and so begins the adventure…”
In God’s Reality, pain and suffering cannot exist
“You may wish to know how to build the energy of love within your being, it is my belief that the purest form of love comes from the emotion and mind set of gratitude. If you are grateful for all that you are, all that you have and the presence of your guides and the Creator within your being, you may find that the vibration of love simply evolves from your being. If you are able to practice creating the presence and mind set of gratitude you will find that love is very easy to access within your being and that you have plenty of love to share with others without reason. This would also mean that you can exist in a state of loving expression whenever you wish, whatever is occurring around or within you.” - Master Jesus (channelled through Natalie Glasson, ‘Christ Consciousness Mirror of Unconditional Love,’ 12 February 2012, www.omna.org).

The waiting is almost over as you prepare to terminate your support for the illusion and allow it to dissolve into nothingness. It was but a brief idea with which you played for a moment and is soon to be forgotten; and yet while you have entertained the idea of it, it seems to have lasted for eons, and that is what you have been experiencing. Be glad that you have chosen to awaken and withdraw your support from it. By ceasing to play games driven by fear and anxiety, you open your hearts to the divine Love field that has always been there for you and you realize that Love is everything and contains everything. You could compare It to the air that you breathe (as you occupy your bodily forms), in that It is all pervasive, but Its vastness is far beyond anything you can conceive of, and It could never be contaminated in any way because It is the perfect divine and limitless environment in which all of creation has its existence.
Because it appears to you that the illusion is very solid, very real, and very ancient, and because you have become very familiar with the pleasures and pains that it offers, your major hope has always been for an enormous improvement in the way that you experience it. You believe that if you can clean up your act by treating the environment with respect, greatly reducing pollution, ending wars, and honoring all people that you can achieve this.
Undoubtedly this is a great project, and as you release more and more of your unloving attitudes and beliefs, much can be achieved. Nevertheless, what you are presently experiencing is illusory, and when you awaken into Reality the issues and problems of your illusory world will be gone forever.
To awaken is your destiny; it cannot be avoided, and for this be thankful because what it offers you is eternal bliss. In Reality, fear, doubt, anxiety, loneliness, conflict, and the large selection of other unpleasant states that give rise to pain and suffering just do not and cannot exist because it offers them no space in which they could develop.
Reality is Heaven, Paradise, the Home of God. It is limitless, boundless, and contains all of creation, all that exists. There is nowhere and nothing else, and so, even as you experience the illusion, you have your eternal existence in this moment and in every moment permanently within God’s divine Reality as essential and inseparable parts of It; there is nowhere else that you could be. You are perfect divine beings forever ensconced in Heaven.
The nightmare of the illusion, which appears to hold you within it, is in fact something quite ephemeral that you have chosen to hold within your own minds. And you are changing your minds because you have decided that you no longer want or need an illusory place in which to play what are basically rather unpleasant games. You have decided that the time for playing games and hiding from God is no longer appealing or of interest, and so you are choosing to awaken to experience once more your Father’s heavenly Reality. It is a very wise decision, and one that you will never regret.
To awaken, after burying yourselves so deeply in the illusion, is a very demanding task, and, as in a dream, it appears to have been an extremely long and drawn out operation. Even now the illusion seems very real as you make your ways most effectively towards awakening. Refocus on releasing all unloving attitudes and behaviors, and ask for help from your enthusiastic guides and angels to embrace only attitudes and behaviors that are totally loving. In your quiet times of relaxation and meditation put yourselves in mind of those you love and release or let go of any thoughts that distract you from this. Love is all there is, so remind yourselves of this and of how dearly loved you all are as God’s divine children, and the time until you awaken will pass easily and swiftly.
With so very much love, Saul.
“Your spiritual evolution has been advancing slowly but steadily for eons, with occasional missteps and diversions, but over the last three or four centuries your rate of progress has been accelerating exponentially, although it may not seem like that to you, and you are now approaching the level from which you will awaken and discover what marvels you have achieved. From almost total ignorance, aligned with just basic reactive behaviour, you have moved forward to an awareness of love, compassion, cooperation, and kindness and have started to use those concepts to engage with one another more and more frequently, and are delighting in how incredibly effective they are at dealing with every kind of problem and situation that you have to cope with in your daily lives. As you demonstrate this by living it, others learn to do likewise, and so these extremely effective concepts are literally exploding into humanity’s awareness all over the planet and are being put into practice to bring about the essential changes that will enable and bring about peace and prosperity for all on Earth.” – Saul (channelled through John Smallman, ‘Time is like an infinite slowing down of reality,’ 15 February 2012, www.johnsmallman.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/time-is-like-an-infinite-slowing-down-of-reality).
"The divine Love field enveloping the planet is available to all. It is there to assist you by merging with your individual energy fields so that your hearts may open in unconditional love and acceptance of all of creation and of yourselves. It is the infinitely inclusive and eternal field of Love in which you were all created and from which absolutely nothing is separated or excluded. When you awaken, the magnificence of this will fill you with joy and wonder, as you fully and finally understand that you all truly are essential components or aspects of the Supreme Being, God, the infinite creative Source within which everything has its eternal existence lovingly and securely maintained.
However, over the eons, negative energies resulting from your sense of separateness have established an atmosphere of fear in the illusion, and it has become very pervasive. You do need to make a very positive intent to open your hearts to the Love surrounding you and to release those fears which serve only to divide you from one another. And it is an intent that you need to maintain — by being aware that you can and do make the choice between fear and love in every moment. Choose love and release your fears. At first it can seem very difficult because it appears that there is so much to fear; and this is when you need to ask for and will receive immediate assistance from whomsoever in the spiritual realms you call upon.
Assistance to move from fear into love is constantly with you — waiting only for your call. So don’t hesitate! As soon as you sense anxiety or fear invading your energy field, make the call for assistance and you will receive it! While you are experiencing physical existence within the illusion, your bodies keep drawing your attention to your separateness; it is their purpose. And so you do need help to maintain your awareness that all are one and that bodies and their sense of separateness are distractions of the illusion. You have been under their influence for so long that it can seem insane not to react spontaneously to their demands for your attention, but the further you move away from fear and towards love the less power they have to influence and move you. And remember, the power that they do have is the power that you have given them.
Your choice to embrace the Love field surrounding you is the way to access your power and bring into your conscious awareness the realization that no one and no thing can or does control you. You are one with God and so His Will is yours. The small will that you chose to have and use within the illusion is as nothing compared to the Will that you share with God. Embracing the field of Love that is all around you will confirm this and enable you to engage with your true power: the divine energy field in which all sentient beings have their existence.
With so very much love, Saul."

You Are Extraordinary Torchbearers!
“Every experience of life is an opening to Me and nothing else. All the things that the little mind holds in judgment, all the commentary it creates on another, all of this is completely superseded, erased, when the communion of the heart becomes Real to you. Not only do you walk in another's shoes, feel everything that they have lived...but from the place of living Love you embrace them and realize they are an aspect of yourself on every level. This is what I am showing you as reflection. Everything that you see as outside has to be alive in you in some way or you wouldn't be able to see it. It wouldn't exist in your energy field.” - From The Messages from God (channelled through Yael and Doug Powell, 13 February 2013, Circle of Light).
P'taah's Message for December 2011
Channelled through Jani King
It is a great joy to speak to you this day because we indeed know you - know that which be your strivings, your courage. That which be the yearnings within the breast of you to become the more of who you truly are.
Who you are is extraordinary, likened unto torchbearers. That which be the yearning within the breast of you to know, to expand, to grow, to transform that which is the fear and pain, that which is the anguish of soul into freedom and sovereignty, into joy, into grand deliciousment, makes you the torchbearers because, beloved ones, you are not separate from your brothers and sisters.
You are not separate no matter how much it feels that you are isolated, no matter how much it feels that you are an island, no matter how much it feels that nobody really knows you. You are not alone.
And that which be your courage, that which be the desire within the breast to be the more, as you come more and more and more into the knowing, into the expansion, so it is because the consciousness of humanity is not isolated, not separate, so indeed you serve every being upon your plane. It is a grand service that you may render really.
You are not alone! You are awesome, powerful, multi-dimensional spiritual beings. Whether or not you know it. You have lived thousands of lifetimes whether or not you know it. You exist in every dimension unto the realms called angelic, whether or not you know it. You are grand and wondrous and you do not know it. You do not know it!
What is it really to know? It means that every fiber of your being rings with that knowing. Every cell in your body knows the grand truth of you. That is knowing.
There is no doubt in knowing. The knowing is of your heart. Your soul knows--that part of you, that grand multidimensional beingness of you knows that there is not one particle, not one facet of you, that does not exist because it is an Extension of Creation, the Source, God/Goddess, All-That-Is. That is who you are.
What is it, the reality called Divinity? What is it in truth? You know it is so simple. The truth is it is simply Love.
And what is Love? It is God/Goddess, All That Is. Love is the thing alone in your realm that in and of itself requires no return. That is what Love is. It is whole unto itself. Love is indeed the building block of your earth. In your world it is that which be the physical expression of reality.
Your bodies could not exist if they also were not the reflection of creation. Your bodies hold every aspect of your physical universe within. Your bodies exist in their cellular and indeed molecular structure through the light of that which is Creation.
Your body is a grand temple. Every cell exists in the light of creation. Your cellular structure is no different from that which be the floor that you stand upon, the chair that you sit upon. There is not an atom or molecule in your existence, in your world, in any world, in any universal galaxy, that does not exist because of Love.
Love is not simply some ephemeral pipe dream. It is not simply some idea-construct. Love is existence. And in your world, the polarity of that love is fear. And fear you know. You have dwelt with fear not only all of this lifetime but indeed every lifetime that you have known upon this realm.
The polarity of Love. It is fear that keeps you in separation from the knowing. It is fear that brings you diseasement. It is fear that brings you pain and anguish. It is fear that creates the negative judgment that you have about who you are and indeed the negative judgment that you project outside of you.
It is real. It is valid, the fear. It is valid. However, the good news is that you do not have to be controlled by fear. You do not and are not required to be driven by fear. However, you, being the powerful, multidimensional beings that you are, have the choice in your day to day life about how you deal with the fear.
There is not one of you who is not driven by, manipulated by, controlled by, fear. Not in every occasion, of course. Certainly not, because all of you here also know love and joy and laughter and play, exuberance, compassion - you know all of that. However we say to you, if there is any area of your life which is not expressing the wondrousness of who you are, then indeed it is based on fear. Lack of any kind in your life is based on fear which creates a perception of lack. Does this make sense to you?
Wherever you perceive lack, you are coming from a place of fear. Because the truth is that you really are Gods and Goddesses. It is not too grandiose a name for you, you know. You are really Gods and Goddesses. Mightily powerful.
If you doubt your power, my beloved ones, simply look at your world. Because no matter how you judge your world to be, you indeed have created it, hmm? You have created it all, co-created indeed. If ever you doubt your power to change your reality, simply stop and look at your life. Because no matter how you judge it, it is your creation and whatever you create is valid. There is no judgment about that, not anywhere. No judgment.
When you look at your world and you say, "But look at the horrors that are wrought in this world, how can there really be no judgment," we say to you indeed we do not use the words 'Gods and Goddesses' lightly. You are not judged. There is no body to judge you. You are in every way a Perfect and Eternal Extension of the Mind of Creation. No matter how your society may judge, we say to you there is no universal judgment. You are Gods and Goddesses playing a game and the game in this Now is simply called 'My Human Life Now', however it is.
"Walking a mile 'in the moccasins of another' from the level of the heart is transforming. As you allow Real Love to bring you true compassion, you also find compassion for yourself, for your own story of ego struggles, of longings, desires and fears. From this place of standing in the truth of Love, this miracle of life brings surrender so deep and so profound that there is nothing that can be judged. Everything is a dance with the mirror and everything becomes a gift when embraced by the heart." - From The Messages from God (channelled through Yael and Doug Powell, 16 February 2012, Circle of Light).
