When I Was Just A Little Girl…

I am realizing that I am awakening. All this time, I have been taking you on that journey with me. I thought I was awake yesterday but today I am more awake, so being awake isn’t just being awake, it is ongoing and continues to deepen as we trust in ourselves more.

We are a product of our actions and everything around ourselves mirrors who we are. If we love God who is love then we should mirror his quality traits and be like Him. It really is that simple. Why did we make things so complex?

Heaven on Earth

Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven…

We are God’s creation. We’ve been given the free choice in how to create. We are God’s Bride and the Mother of this beautiful garden we call Earth.

Up until now, we have created chaos and have been destroying all of God’s creation that was perfect. We created without Him. We have been creating in our own desires that did not reflect God. We created from our ego.

The state of who we are today is a mirror image of who we believe we are, which is not the image of God. We didn’t believe in God because we believed we were God instead! In our ignorance we have destroyed the beautiful garden God gave us.

Awareness is knowing that we are actually divine. We are in darkness until we remove all the things that are not a complement of our Creator.

There is much work to do…

We will never see until we remove the ego.

Today, I went for my daily walk in the park. I have this beautiful park just across the street from where I live. I make a point to go there everyday. I think they call it, “forest bathing”?

The more we slow down our selves, the more we will see the beauty that is right in front of our nose — We take so much for granted.

I love my walks. Today, I was thinking about a question that I asked God yesterday. I realize that we are all good at heart. I believe we all go to be with Him when we die. This place here on Earth is just temporary, but what is it for?

We all have a purpose. We all don’t realize we are in the dark. There is always a part of ourselves that is in darkness. We can never know the fullness of God while in our human form. We can only seek to know as much as we can about Him during our time here on Earth.

So, that was kindof my question. What about those people who do not do the work to “wake-up”, so to speak? What about the people who do not do the work on themselves to know their true self? What if a person continues to deny the goodness of God to continue to do evil?

All these questions really bothered me. I don’t believe that God rejects any of us. I believe that God’s love is unconditional. It has to be because God only loves — He is love!

So, what happens to all the people who reject Him? What about the Hitlers, the psychopaths, and the narcissists?

The Judgement

We are not hear to judge others. I mean, we can see and disagree with others but it isn’t our job to judge them. We can bring things to the light that are wrong, but we have to do it in a loving, non-judging way. It is tricky because when we judge someone we are acting in ego.

But crimes and wrongness have to be confronted.

It is wrong to allow someone to do evil to you. What someone does to the other he or she does it to God, whether it is bad or good.

Remember this parable?

And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Today, I realize that we are here to do good, yes, but we are also here to judge ourselves. According to Revelation 2:11 and 20:6, those who overcome Satan’s tribulation are holy. They have a part in the first resurrection (awakening), so will not experience the second death (they have done their work).

If we have no bad judgement of ourselves then we have done our work and are complete with Him.

If we continue to allow the world to oppress us from finding our true selves then we are not able to overcome Satan’s tribulations. All life’s challenges are here to push us to find our true self. If we allow them to burden and oppress us then we are not trusting God.

Granted, challenge is difficult but there is never too much that God will give us to be able to do some good with it. Just look at Anne Frank!

I believe that we are all God’s children, even the bad ones. What I believe now about the afterlife is that there isn’t a specific “physical” hell, but a hell that will exist in our self if we do not come clean about all our “sins” now.

We really want to deal with our sins now because what happens when we are in front of pure divineness is that we are now aware of who we really are, which is light but are in so much pain because we see what we could have been, what we should have done, and who we wronged.

We judge ourselves and the pain of that judgement when we know pure light so intimately is treacherous. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy!

So, it isn’t for us to just think; “Well, thank goodness I am not Hitler, the psychopath, or the narcissist”… Remember the tax collector parable? The more we understand about the light the more we have to be givers of it because now that we know, we have to try as hard as we can to help people see their truth too.

If we truly love each other we will want others to know their truth too. But we have to be non-judgemental and only loving. We have to allow people to be who they are and respect who they are in whatever place they are at. We have to be humble in our wisdom.

God is Good

My prayer is that we all will see His goodness and find healing and contentment in knowing who we really are.

When I was just a little girl,
I asked my mother, what will I be?
Will I be pretty?
Will I be rich?
Here's what she said to me...

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be

When I grew up and fell in love,
I asked my sweetheart, what lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows?
Day after day?
Here's what my sweetheart said...

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be

Now I have children of my own,
They ask their mother, what will I be?
Will I be handsome?
Will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly...

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be
Que sera, sera
