I am going on a road trip so it will be a week before I can post another blog, please enjoy this blog, read through the others and share with your friends and family. YOU are Loved ♥
Murder, war, disaster, scandal, political games, and gossip are indeed entertaining. They might even make for good movie material, but do you really want those things in your life? What you focus on grows…. One of the things that makes this 2012 era so amazing is the shift in consciousness and the opportunity to move beyond these ego based activities. Remember, nothing is good or bad lest you make it so.
Spirit works at a whole different level of energy than ego does. And one of your greatest challenges is knowing the difference! Making a clear choice is sometimes difficult because you do not understand the ego, separation mindedness, often feels very good. Think of five things you enjoy doing that bring you pleasure. For me it is TV, Movies (at a theatre), Good Food, Warm Comfortable Clothing, and Sex. Each of these can be a source of ego or Spirit depending on the energy I bring to the experience. (Divine Love)
Knowing the difference is not really that difficult. Keep it simple! Ego is all about separation, while Spirit (Divine Love) is about Unity. If the experience creates Unity, then it is sourced by Spirit and lifts you up. The feeling it brings is peaceful, serene, and joyful. Ego on the other hand creates separation. The feeling can be good, elating, and powerful or painful, boring, and lonely; however, the end result brings you and those around you – down. Sort of like, “what goes up must come down.” Can you think of an example?
Take TV or Movies for instance. The whole family can gather in the evening to share in entertainment, Unity! The family can each enjoy the experience on their own level and share the Love which makes up a family, or they can force their opinions and viewpoints about the experience on the rest of the family creating separation. Or take sex as an example, the experience can be all about the pleasure and your partner is simply a means to an end or it can be a joining of souls for the mutual experience of Divine connection!
“A Course in Miracles” and books written to explain it are a great source of wisdom concerning the concept I present here today. I highly recommend you take the course, it will tell you at the beginning that it is a required course. If you have difficulty with the course, then try some of the other books written about it, like Marianne Williamson’s “A return to Love” or Gary Renard’s “Disappearance of the Universe”. I know there are many more books as well, like “The Voice for Love” by David Paul and Candace Doyle which is one of the best I have read. “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle is very good at explaining ego, so you may give it a read as well.
Once these concepts are internalized and expressed, life will take on new meaning and value for you. Colors will be more vivid and relationships will be more fulfilling. Miracles are a daily experience and if you are not experiencing this then maybe it is time to wake up and re-align.
