The Universe reminds us…
The Top 10 things about time and space that most people seem to forget…
10. You chose to be here and you knew what you were doing.
9. There are no “tests” and you’re not being judged.
8. Everyone’s doing their best, with what they know.
7. You already have whatever you’re looking for.
6. You are of the Divine, pure God, and so is everyone else.
5. Religion needs spirituality; spirituality does not need religion.
4. You’re naturally inclined to succeed - at everything you do.
3. You happen to life, life does not happen to you.
2. Order, healing, and love belie every moment of chaos, pain, and fear.
1. Following your heart is the best way to help others.
And… coffee, tea, and chocolate are proof enough that you’re adored from the unseen.
The truth shall set you free,
Oneness and swimming with polar bears.
We are on the Earth and of the Earth. We are consumers and will be consumed. There are animals that farm and exist other animals. There are plants that live off other plants and indeed other animals. Humans are not unique in the use of this world and its resources for our existence. We are unique in that we overuse, abuse and have moved out of sync with our environment.
If God beings are your thing, you would accept that God is omnipresent and omnipotent by all common understanding. That means she/he/it knows and has always known the path we would take as a species, and loves us regardless/has a plan/has no care.
My view is that we are all of spirit. The entire planet, its beings and minerals are all created from spirit. We are not created evil. Evil is a concept and a perspective. A lion killing a gazelle is not evil. Neither is a hungry crocodile. We co-exist not be not killing each other but by living in harmony with our environment and fellow being. Lions and gazelles, crocodiles and cows, polar bears and seals, these are all creatures that co-exist in a harmonious manner. And so can we with the rest of the natural world.
Yes, graphic may be an over-simplification but it is an ideal to which we would, as intelligent beings, want to realise instead of consuming out of “fear of not enough” until there truly is not enough for any Earthling. And that would not be fair to our non-human breatheren.
Spent much of the day watching this series. Intriguing stuff.
Dear Human: You’ve got it allllll wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering. But unconditional love? Stop telling that story. Love, in truth, doesn’t need ANY other adjectives. It doesn’t require modifiers. It doesn’t require the condition of perfection. It only asks that you show up. And do your best. That you stay present and feel fully. That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as YOU. It’s enough. It’s Plenty.
You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day.
Nature against Man; Man against Nature; God against Man, Man against God; God against Nature; Nature against God; very funny religion!
A poem by Julie Peters called Tantric Philosophy on “finding God in the softness inside my mouth, the deep bruise of birthmarks, the red-cheeked back of my hand, and muscles like meat before I tenderize them”. :-)
Julie came in 1st place on the 2nd of January with a score of 56.2 at the Vancouver Poetry Slam.
