Finding Peace Within…… While We Walk In The Chaos Without.

Do not be discouraged on your quest to self-realization, for when you stumble do not say to yourself that you have failed, instead you should say that you have not succeeded yet.  For is not a saint a sinner who did not give up?  Do not be hard on yourself, but be very hard on the things inside you that prevent you from achieving your goal. 

Like a child do not hesitate to ask “why”, and please do not settle for the answer, “just because”.  The answer will be found within you, but just remember it doesn’t come FROM you, remember where all true answers come from.     

Yes indeed it is difficult to practice, yet practice makes perfect.  Our soul is like learning to play an instrument.  Proper and regular practice allows gradual mastery.  Like a child who sounds horrible when he first harshly hammers at a toy guitar, the parent allows him to make noise because they know that it is the first steps to becoming a wonderful musician.

It is your yearning and desire with proper intention that will bring you good fruit when harvest time comes.  What merit does it bring a person to accumulate all sorts of knowledge and not use it for their own correction?  In fact wisdom used for anything else but the individuals own self correction only grows the arrogance and self-glory which separates them from true attainment.

What arises the strongest emotions in a parent?  When a child seemly achieves everything naturally without much effort?  Or when the child struggles and remains steadfast in their effort with a proper attitude toward failure as well as success?  Surely the heart flutters more in the latter case.  Let this perspective be the approach towards your spiritual development.

Do what you must do to the best of your abilities and with your purest intentions, and then step back.  Do not even care about the results of your action.  Asking such questions such as, “did it bear fruit”.  Your actions will sometimes bear good fruit, other times bad fruit or no results at all.  Sometimes the fruitation is ripened into a beneficial result a long time after the seed of your action was planted.  So find pleasure in the intentions that your actions were done by, and do not expect any particular result.  It is in expectation of a certain result from your actions that bring disappointment and sorrow knocking at your door.  LIVE BY AND THROUGH YOUR HIGHEST INTENTION MOMENT PER MOMENT AND DO NOT LOOK BACK.  Do not look back because life is only in that present moment, therefore leave the ghosts of the past moment in peace. 

What does it benefit a person to look back at a good deed done?  Nothing good can come of that, but pride in oneself.  Pride is doomed from the start because it is built on a faulty foundation.  It is assumed that you have done something good yourself, instead of understanding that good fancied you at that moment and decided to flow through you.  What is a prideful heart?  Is it not-self adoration….like staring in the mirror too much?  Being happy for a job well done is not pride, however returning again and again to the memory of that job well done and speaking about it to others is the very definition of pride.  No good can come from it, and even great harm can be done with it.  How can someone infatuated with themselves, direct anything towards another at that moment?  No prides foundation is truly weak, and to build upon it will surely cause that whole thing to crumble.  Do your job and step back…..that path to true happiness and serenity.  Live by your highest intentions and you will be happy because your happiness does not depend on the result.  Caring about results is living on the surface of your being.  Caring about your intentions is living within the depths of  your being.  Define success by acting with the right intention, and do not define success by the results. 

Be joyful when wisdom visits you and you are used as a tool for its purpose.  However never believe that wisdom belongs to you, that is the true indication of a fool.  If you understand that you are being visited by wisdom then how can you take the credit for what it has done through you?  Really have you of yourself done anything at all?  Or did wisdom find a use for you and like the wind pushed you into action?  The same for all truly good and beneficial things that occur towards, through, and around you.  All beauty within you is not from you, but can infinitely dwell within you. 

How can wisdom, grace, or anything of virtue come visit you if you already believe that you have them?

Interesting Free Site

Found what they have to say very interesting.


No charms, magic or astrology involved with this site.


Change only me!!!!!!

It is my feeling that besides me, all of the events and people sent my way are from the Creator.  We are all interconnected parts of a collective soul even if it does not feel that way to us in our present states.  Therefore all of us are under the influence of this unified field, and the only free will we have is to work with it or against it within our intentions.  Working towards the intnetion of creation is called the path of Light.  Working against it is called the path of suffering.  Our free will is in the path we take with our intentions, but it is still under the influence of the Upper Force.    Even the varying inner states and emotions and desires that awaken from seemingly nothing are sent to me from the Creator. Therefore I should not waste these moments sent by the Creator to pray and asked for different situations, because each moment is the Creators dialogue with you.  What is the Creator telling you through these events.  All things are from the Upper One sending me exactly what I need at that specific moment.  If it appears that there is an opposite force going against the Creator, it is only because the Creator wills it to be that way.  Even the evil within this world that has dominion for its alloted time will serve as a driving force to bring to completion the will of the Upper One.  Yes of course there is evil in the world, and evil is not the nature of the Creator, however it is allowed to manifest itself and exist for a purpose which becomes revealed as humanity evolves towards its destiny.  In fact the outward reality seen through events and circumstances are in some ways a mirror of our inner attitude towards the Creator and others.  Humanity is a collective entity and the Upper Force uses the individual for the benefit of the totality.  However these events and circumstances often go against the individual desires for that specific person.  However when we begin to want to work for the totality and realize the complexity of the system we realize that what is good for the whole is often against the individuals wants and desires.   Hence the reason why seemingly unfair events occur to individuals, however this view is from the separated individual and not from the perspective of the collective need.  However if an individual desires to work for the correction of the totality of humanity, then the individual blows and turmoil are understood, and put into proper perspective.  This does not make them any less painful however seeing things from our own narrow point of view is always painful.    It is through the proper attitude and perspective that all events can be justified as beneficial to the collective and from this correct attitude help from Above can be received during these difficult events.  When events cannot be justified a person cuts themselves off from the Upper Force and is left to deal with the events on their own, which is very difficult.  They then depend on other individuals which usually fall short and causes further suffering.  Only a connection with the Upper Force can allow a person to understand the purpose behind the suffering seen within our world.  This suffering is not for nothing, and proper understanding and work with the Upper Force through understanding of the Universal law can greatly begin to diminish the suffering occurring.  We can truly change our world by changing ourselves and once we are changed we continue our effort not for ourselves but to bring Light through us to others.  There is always work to be done.  First for our individual correction, and then as a way of passing the Light to others through continued efforts and application of what we have attained.  

I demand only that the Creator prepare me as a proper vessel to house his LIGHT. I am like a container and I am only as good as what I hold within me. So I do everything to demand the Upper one to change ME……not change things outside myself.  What do I know in this state of concealment what is needed to correct my vessel.

Therefore witchcraft, tarot cards, lucky charms and shrines ect, even if it is called white magic and used with good intention or to help others, it is implying that we know what is needed to benefit another.  We do not know what states, circumstances, and events are needed for their vessel to become a resting place for the CREATOR.  We often only see what benefits their earthly existence, and no matter how grand it may be all these accomplishments return to the dust or with time are forgotten.  There is nothing eternal in them and the Creator pays no attention to it, it is not important towards to totality.   The Creator benefits only the eternal part which is real and this often means at the expense of pleasure and Glory in this world.  The Creator promises not Glory in this world, but Glory in the eternal one.  Always do what you can in kind words and actions for another, this is needed.  However never pray for things, people, or events to change because we do not know what other souls need for advancement.  It is difficult enough to know how to advance along our own correction.  The path of suffering is the Creator pushing us to correction just like the narrow path of LIGHT to heaven is pulling us towards our collective destiny. So praying for anything other than to ask for ourselves to change is to imply that the Creator needs consultations and can be bribed with prayers.  This does not imply that we cannot feel compassion, empathy for others who suffer and connect our hearts to what they are living. However what happens must happen and is all within the blueprint of our collective salvation.  So be there for each other and help other people with our actions, however in our heart we should never feel that this should not be happening.  Do not curse the present moment because it is the only connection you have with eternity, and he who cannot accept the present moment cannot connect with the Upper One.  God does not in my opinion stop bad things from happening to good or bad people. However having HIM dwell with you during your deepest suffering give you the support, insight and strength to get through it.

Wait, Reflect, Respond

Interactions with the outside world tends to create ripples and waves on the surface of our emotions.  It is best to wait and reflect for a few precious moments to allow these emotional responses to dissipate.  These moments of inner stillness can allow the proper response to surface into ones consciousness from the eternal depths of our being.

When we respond to quickly to the ever-changing  dance of life, we tend to be seduced by the sudden emotions which urge us into personifying them.  Once they make their appearance they soon return from where they came from and we are left feeling somewhat manipulated, frustrated and helpless to their intoxicating nature.

Allow the waves to settle and from the stillness after the storm your higher self may be able to manifest itself and say the right thing at the right time.

Like continual fluctuations on the surface of the ocean so vulnerable to the outside influence of the seasons and environment, we to become led by the winds of change and the turmoil occurring around us.  However the depth of the ocean remain ever calm and tranquil in its solitude.  We to can find our calm and tranquil nature when we reside in our own depths, and allow the waves at the surface of our lives to come and go with the seasons.   Do what must be done on your surface of being, but then step back from the chaos at the surface and return to your depths. 

Find the place within you that is not happy or sad but is at peace with what is.  Find a place within you that is not dependant on outside things.  Love is an awareness and happiness is a result of flowing with and not against the present moment.  All desired things come from a proper intention and attitude towards the Universe and the Creator. 

A good response is as sweet as homemade cookies, you just  have to let the response bake in the oven a little bit.
