In the French motel that we stayed at last night there was the phrase written on the walls - stencilled in quite a large script as part of the decor, not grafitti - "la meilleure façon de réaliser ses rêves est de se réveiller" (the best way to realise our dreams is to wake up).  Quite surprising to find such a profound pronouncement in such mundane a context!

    As I Began to Love Myself ~ A Poem on Self Love


    As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.


    As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody. As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me.

    Today I call it RESPECT.


    As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.

    Today I call it MATURITY.


    As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.

    Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.


    As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.

    Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.

    Today I call it SIMPLICITY.


    As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for

    my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew

    me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude

    a healthy egoism. Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.


    As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since

    I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is MODESTY.


    As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry

    about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING

    is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT.


    As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me

    and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my

    mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.


    We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others.

    Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.

    Today I know that this LIFE.


    Author ~ The origin of this poem is uncertain. It is believed to have been written by *Charlie Chaplin on his 70th birthday, however some give credit to Kim & Alison McMilen, for a poem titled, “When I Loved Myself Enough”.

    ABRAHAM'S DAILY QUOTE FROM YESTERDAY:


    "Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, “Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,” that is the perfect vibrational stance.


    Excerpted from Kansas City, KS on 9/17/03


    Our Love,

    Esther

    (and Abraham and Jerry)"


    I love these reminders that EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING PERFECTLY.

    Just now, whilst re-reading Seth Speaks (thank you again, Chris, for that nudge), it sorta dawned on me that the above idea is intimately tied up with one of my own key life lessons - that despite all signs to the contrary, with life becoming more and more challenging on all sorts of levels, I have to hold the faith that EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING PERFECTLY.  This is obviously easy enough when life is smooth and pleasant, but more recently I have to tell myself again and again that everything happens for a reason, it's all part of the divine plan, all is well - and that's why I keep getting these reminders popping up.  WOW, I'd never thought of this being a personal lesson before, but it does make sense ...


    Just felt the need to share ;-)


  • fredburks's picture
    2 weeks ago

    That's powerful, Julie! I find that the more I open to taking personal responsibility for literally everything happens, the more aligned I become with All That Is. And at the same time, I know that we are all co-creating this together, so it's not just me, but everyone who is co-responsible for everything that happens. Thanks for sharing your realization!

Hey Fred

I was just having a general look around the forums and can see there's a lot of history and stories in there.  I was amazed that there were hundreds of comments on the most commented post, going back 10 years or so - obviously a lot more activity at that time.

I was interested that there seemed to be a lot of posts 'removed at author's request' - what's that all about?

Nice to see that active members have recently expanded to the 4 of us ;-)

    I'm going to walk around here more now that there's no CAT to hold me back. Lots of minerals and mining and TELLURIDE who's name sounds pretty cool but the town's mostly just expensive. Somebody needs to map this continent more.


    Nicholas R Mann from your bottleneck of the proverbial woods wrote Sedona- Sacred Earth which is amazing. Maybe I could be trained in geomancy and do the landscape over here...


    Otherwise further southwest has a major nexus. I'll have to look it up.

    TEENAGER KILLED BY CHICKEN BURGER - what a ludicrous headline I read in the paper today (and this wasn't a tabloid) - a tragic situation for all those involved - but nobody transitions before they are ready - so much blame flying around - so many lessons - perhaps one of these might be something to do with personal accountability and being responsible for ourselves and what happens around us.


  • juliemartyn's picture

    I've just been thinking - as we do in quiet moments - and I've just consciously realised that everything in our lives, even our life itself, is a gift and not a right - EVERYTHING, irrespective of whether we judge it as good or bad in the moment. I know it's an old cliche  but all too often we only appreciate something when we lose it  from our lives - even the unpleasant stuff has value - sometimes we need it for a lesson, but we also need to become aware that we don't always need to SUFFER to learn our lessons - in theory, anyhow ;-)


    APPRECIATION is an important key - living in gratitude for what we have, not stressing and obsessing about what we lack.


    Seemed like a bit of an insight for me .... just thought I'd share ;-)


     


  • fredburks's picture

    Yes, Julie. I fully embrace seeing everything as a gift, even the super challenging stuff. I find that the more I embrace the hard times, the easier it is for me to grow and expand. Take care and enjoy these wild times!

    "A soul does have the ability to create their own reality, but that is limited by the choices they have made for their life."

     

    I've just come across this idea from 'mastersofthespiritworld' which totally resonates with Seth's message, but I feel is not fully addressed by some current 'teachers' in our dimension (Joe Dispenza and Bruce Lipton spring to mind who, despite this, are still doing amazing work in bringing the mind/heart/body connection to the fore).  It seems to me that they bang the drum that if we all do the necessary/appropriate meditational and visualisation work, we are all capable of  manifesting everything we desire in this life, be it perfect health or abundant wealth.  This has the danger of leaving those of us who, despite our best efforts, have fallen short of our goals feeling that we've done something wrong or not done enough, when it's a case of our ego goals not being aligned with our life lessons.

     

    On a good day (haha), I've now come to the acceptance that my health challenges are still serving me and whilst that is the case, the best thing I can do is ask for guidance that I may understand the associated lessons and be able to move on!

     

     

  • fredburks's picture

    I very much agree, Julie. Though I know that in our most expanded Self each of us is all powerful, I believe we came to Earth to learn and grow, and many souls set up limitations before incarnating that would give us the lessons we desire to do that. So many here have set limitations that are not meant to be removed. It would be great if people like Dispenza and Lipton would touch on this, too. Thanks for your thoughts, and much love to your and yours.

    I never meant any pain or harm to come to you from any of my posts.  I try hard to understand the world, but try even harder to remain optimistic.  That is a choice.  NOBODY is born with optimism and if they are, it is driven from them at a young age.


     


    I make that choice every day, hour, and sometimes minute.  I can't stand too much negativity.  In fact, when I get inundated with it, I feel that this one small person has to change the world NOW.  That is usually the beginning of what the doctors call my mania.


     


    Negativity is dangerous for me so I must take it in small doses.  That doesn't mean I don't want to know about the world.  It just means that if I know too much too fast, I will typically end up in a hospital.  


     


    I love your quote by your picture by the way.  Everyone I know thinks I have a huge potential to be crazy.  The doctors at the psych ward can attest to that.  I really like your last post and just wanted you to know that I have just recently read this coversation and I didn't mean to ignore your post directed at me.


     


    I love you no matter what and always will.

    I myself have come and appear to have gone many times. This is all to do with chronic depression than anything said here.


    I love the honesty here, wether good or bad, we must always be honest with ourselves.


    On my journey I have been part of several forums, all of them transform and mould themselves as contributors come and go, however what Fred and his team created here with the Transfomational lead into the forum is something not found elswhere (not that I have found anyway)


    Around the time or just before this original post, I took a serious overdose and almost left this planet for good. It was only my strong connection to my daughters and their keen senses that I survived. Looking back it was extremely selfish of me to do that, yet I know now it was very necessarily part of my journey.


    Know this one thing, I love you all deeply, as you are all just me from another perspective and you have helped me pull through all of my troubles, even though I have been silent I have been thanking each and every one of you daily


     


    Thanks again Fred for you and your teams inspiration and hardwork in setting this all up. Long may it continue Cool

    Wow, Ian! That's intense!!! Thank you so much for your willingness to share of your pain and of even getting to the point of attempting suicide. I'm so glad your daughters called you back from the other side. I invite you whenever you are feeling depressed to reach out here and allow us to support you as well. I don't want to lose you. I love you, dear brother!

    "Always remember," God had smiled, "I have sent you nothing but angels."

     

    One of the most important lessons here may be for us to learn to love each other EXACTLY AS WE ARE.

     

    Our greatest tormenters in this life may also be our greatest teachers and perhaps we should learn to be thankful for all who become part of our journey, whatever part they play.

     

    With much LOVE and GRATITUDE to everyone.

So... Not sure where to start.

Our mainstream version of history for the last few hundred years is faulty. War isn't our natural heritage, it was beaten into us. All the wars since around 1800 have been to wipe traces of our true history from the planet. Even RIGHT NOW they are still attempting to obliterate it. NWO. Disney and McDonald's.

Tartaria. Giants. Global civilization and trade. California island and mud floods. 1000 years added to an already "trumped up" Roman calendar.

So, I have been seeing something in the sky lately and can't find anything about it on the internet or from anyone I talk to.  Actually, I haven't brought it up to many people and the ones I do think I'm crazy.  So here goes...

 

At night I've been spending a lot of time with the stars lately and they have been flashing at me.  I don't know how to word it, but there have been kind of flashes like from a camera almost happening several times a night coming from the sky.

    Please could you stay awhile to share my grief

    For its such a lovely day

    To have to always feel this way

    And the time that I will suffer less

    Is when I never have to wake

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    Those who have seen the needles eye, now tread

    Like a husk, from which all that was, now has fled

    And the masks, that the monsters wear

    To feed, upon their prey

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    doubled up inside

    Take awhile to shed my grief

    (Always) doubled up inside

    Taunted, cruel...

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved

    The blackness of darkness forever

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    Wheels are made for rollin'

    Mules are made to pack

    I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    Mud can make you prisoner, and the plains can bake you dry

    Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry

    Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to

    Which with any luck will never come true

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    Do I know where hell is?

    Hell is in hello

    Heaven is goodbye for ever, it's time for me to go

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    A wandrin' wandrin' star

    When I get to heaven tie me to a tree

    Or I'll begin to roam, and soon you know where I will be

    I was born under a wandrin' star

    A wandrin' wandrin' star

    Sometimes I get so caught up in what the world needs that I forget all it has to offer. I get trapped in this mentality that the Earth is broken and needs my help to fix it. It's true we can all work to make this a better place, but the resistance is what makes it fun.


    The Earth is wonderfully fantastic the way it is. It is all unfolding as it should. How do I know that? Because it is happening!!


    That's all the proof I need. Let's not get so caught up in the shadow side that we can't bask in the light.

    Book post gone... Comments all over the place anyway... Frayed thread...

    Toward the end of OPoC PDF book I've constantly mentioned a relevance.

    Asking the Nine about broken leylines. Said the Serpent line had been broken in GB. Like the beams in the DT.

    Then they co-opt that energy, in this case SEXUALITY. Which mirrors our psychic centers and provides the energies for "higher powers".

    Glad the WingMakers straighten all that out. What's what...

    And some of the more daring and less confused schools of Tantra and magick...

    Quite the unique (and Monique) situation we're in here! ODD to think most of the rest of the beings not in human form can't even fathom what it is we're experiencing, since only we can sense it! The matrix within the matrix. The hologram of separation.

    SPECIAL.

    Now we just need to convince "8 billion" "other" "people".

    EASY. How about a REAL challenge!!

    Most profound words ever out of my mouth during my '98 mushroom trip...

    "If we all get together, we can bring the LIGHT."

    Well, it's already here, always has been. Just takes some REFOCUSING.

 I just watched a great, great movie about the climate change pickle we're in by Jeff Bridges called Living in the Future's Past.  I think I saw it as a paid movie on YouTube Premium.
This non-blaming movie was very helpful to me to sort some stuff out.
For the first time since I was a teen I could see the modern world as a fragile and temporary energy system. He spells it out-it's a world built on "fossilized Sunlight". Everything (this email) is built on this cheap energy.
It was a gentle movie-I needed that.

    Your buddy Jane Roberts is mentioned near the end of Only Planet of Choice.

    Information through the Nine seems similar to Ra and the Law of One...

    Both sources state "the opposition" or "others" try to taint the more positive among us with DOOM and GLOOM visions or outlook if they can't corrupt us in desire for power and control. Best not to give in to that trap.

I am so sick of what is going on in this world right now and not being able to help.  I consider myself an eternal optimist, but this is getting ridiculous.  I used to think it was a small percentage of people that were harming this Earth.  

I'm starting to believe that there are more people out there with bad intentions than I imagined.  Maybe this is part of the awakening process?  Maybe this all needs to happen in order for us to realize how screwed up we all are?
