In today’s society, life is dominated by social conflict and a battle of opposing extremes. One needs to turn from this conflict and strive to be in harmony with the natural flow of the Universe.
We can start by not attaching ourselves to any one thought or ideal, but see them as a part of the whole. Don’t just see the words, paragraphs, and pages, but see all as one and the spirit behind them. Don’t miss what is written because of the words.
JAMES: This is something that is starting to resonate with me so strongly. My shiatsu therapist, Daniel, wrote me this a few days ago: The soul is one and each of us is a point of entry into the material world. But we are one soul at some level. God experiences
the world through each point of entry and the experience of each informs the
whole. Our ascension in the spiritual path raises the vibration of everyone
you come into contact with.” One year ago I had a visionary experience in the Amazon that told me the same thing in a very profound and mystical way. My path over the past year has been trying to effect this understanding/being in my daily life. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes more challenging. The universe has been giving me the tools though…this is “the easy”. I just have to be open to the “natural flow of the Universe, something I believe/understand more every day. My trip to the amazon just “happened” unexpectedly. I signed up for the Ready, Set Live course by “accident”. My shiatsu therapist who I met out of a need to “cure” a stiff painful neck problem has become a partner in mutual spiritual growth. My dearest friend JP came into my life profoundly mirroring areas in my life where I have been stubborn and negative. I feel an urgency now to open up more and more to the natural flow. The challenge is for me to not become attached to the everyday emotions rooted in my insecurities and fears that blind me or take me away from the universal flow…and it does feel like a challenge at times! I would love to hear from others how the Universe/Source/God has manifested in your lives in beautiful ways and how you work with the challenges/details of the everyday in a way that permits you to align more fully with the natural flow.
Blessings, peace and love
EL: Isn’t this experience amazing, beautiful, gratifying and blissful? My friend, the course of getting there for everyone seems to be different. I am truly looking forward in other people’s input towards the question you have posed.
My two bit is as follows: in the path that is so naturally unfolding before you, you are going to find that all answers are within you. You are a direct link to creation. You are of creation. Everything else is secondary. They are only important in sparking the truth within, but it is within your journey that the answers are found. We each walk the path as the student and the teacher. We must follow our heart and make the best of this journey. In my life and teachings I have learned to see beyond how life has been presented to me by my fellow-co-creators. When we learn to trust our spirit, and put aside what we have been injected with all our lives and recognize all the false characters we have been introduced to, we naturally align with the spirit that is flowing through our veins and reside within us. We learn to trust the Source. As our understanding of the source and our unconditional love grows, the doubt and fear is replaced immediately and a sense of peace and ease sets-in. With that, the alignment with the source and going with the natural flow seems the only natural thing and all else loses meaning.
JAMES: A little light bulb just went on! Thanks to what you’ve said here and what I’ve learned in class and from your literature all of the answers are within in me because I am of Source. If I align my physical self with my inner self (energetic self?) everything will flow. My emotions are an indication of whether this alignment is taking place or not. Those times when I feel my path to be challenging is an indication that maybe I am trying too hard and not “going with the flow”. In light of this, my comment that I feel “an urgency now to open up more to the natural flow” seems to be contradictory. If I am in a hurry to get to “an improved place” I am discounting the “power of the stream, its speed, its direction and its promise”. With my statement I am, in fact, paddling up stream and working against the natural path. Rather than try so hard to find the natural flow I should pull up my paddle and let the stream guide me. The natural flow is already there and I am in it. Wow, that takes a load off my shoulders! I feel more relaxed already.
Live in Light!
