This blog post is a response to a challenge by Litebeing to Spread Magnificence Beyond Time and Space.
I love movies in the Fantasy genre. The Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, The Labyrinth… The journey, the perils and triumphs from which emerges an unlikely Hero. I think all fans of these movies imagine themselves as that emerging Hero.
But, this is only a fantasy. Or…. is it?
Thanks to some personal Heros in my lifetime, I have seen behind the curtain and know that the ones running the show are no bigger than I am. They don’t have access to knowledge I can’t access. So what is really going on?
People Are Inherently Bad…
This is the premise that dictates we need a government to “look out for us.” This is why we need priests to “intervene” for us. This is why I believed I needed a Savior. So I took notes. I did not want to forget one iota of of the valuable information these enlightened leaders were so gracious to give me.
To say it is confusing when politicians, high ranking officials, ministers widely known and local, police and teachers’ bad choices are paraded nightly in the media news is an understatement. It led me to question, “what is going on with the world?”
For too long I allowed the rules set up by others to dictate my beliefs. I allowed religion to tell me I am a sinner and vile unless I have a Savior and to obey church doctrine (blindly following even when it changed). I allowed government to tell me how to live, and how much money I am allowed to have, to regulate resources that Earth supplies us all in abundance. Teachers teach what is currently approved, often not truth. The general population is reacting, pushing back against the control. The belief in separateness and lack creates a Me First mentality. But this post is about MAGNIFICENCE. How does that come about?
Learning Who I Am
Learning that our leadership is corrupt opened my eyes. There is no savior. I must become my own savior somehow. I must go whithin to find my beginning and truth. The false leaders have shown me much of what is wrong and distasteful in humanity, do I possess or display any of these characteristics? In some cases, yes! I have at one time or another acted out in ways I now forgive myself of. I have a shadow side. We all do, this is part of being whole. What sets us apart is where we choose to spend most of our time.
In this introspection, I learned I am not separate. I am part of everything, connected. I feel what others feel, and not just the people. I feel the trees, the birds, the animals and water and wind. I feel everything. How can this be if we are not connected? In Exodus 3:14 of the Bible and the Torah, God tells Moses to tell the Israelites that Ehyeh asher ehyeh sent him. This translates I am who I am. When I say it out loud, I can’t help but sound like I am speaking about myself. I am. I Am. I AM GOD. I am not separate- I am part of the whole. I iubegan to act and create in love and inclusive of the best interest for all.
Facing the Ego
Today I read a fascinating article about Trump as a spiritual teacher. Understanding the ego and putting it into is proper place (we do not eliminate ego, it has a purpose) will bring us all together, but ego likes to separate and divide me from others.
Squaring up to ego is a challenge I choose to face. I am rewarded by getting to know who I truly am and the power to create my own reality! As ego peels away in layers like an onion, something new and magnificent is realized. I gain new understanding about myself and about my world.
People are Inherently GOOD!
I have broken the shackles of control! My mind is no longer swayed by what main stream media and entertainment create for us to focus on. I see the light of the good happening in the world every day and all around me! I have become a part of that light and am empowered. When I see the good that people are creating, I want to share it and create more. The tide is turning and the Universe is on our side, cheering. I am magnificent… we ALL are. A beautiful new world is emerging and I am going to build a bonfire and burn my old notes.
