Writer’s Soap Box . . . Forget or Not to Forget?

I’m going to do a book review on my other blog, but I wanted to talk about a question that I got from one of the stories in a collection of short stories titled Beyond The Pale, edited by Henry Herz. The question is: Is it a gift to be able to forget? The author of the story believes so. I, on the other hand, think not so much.

We are born forgetting. We are a species that has forgotten. Our whole makeup is to forget unless we put in the effort to do otherwise. This forgetting has been the cause of so many problems, such as forgetting the harm that someone has inflicted thereby (un)intentionally enabling them to repeat the offense. It makes it easier for us to make the same mistake without feeling like a silly-willy dum-dum that doesn’t learn. But most of all forgetting can hamper our progress of being self-made (this includes the aid of community and Spirit.)

With this small list of reasoning against forgetting, the author of this story believes even still, to forget is a blessing- it’s a small part of the story but as a writer, I hooked on to it. We don’t want to remember the painful memories. We can let past lovers be those past lovers. That’s it. Those are the writer’s two reasoning for being in favor of forgetting.

Now, I’ve made my share of mistakes but if I could I would keep all the memories. I believe that when we know better we do better; most us anyway. I also champion the idea that if we were able to remember why we’re here, where we came from, when did we arrive, and how are we to live, then life would be a lot easier. I don’t agree that we need negative reinforcement to grow. Forgetting enforces such method of encouragement.

As far as the people of my past go; there are people in my past who I still remember, and their presence is just a strong as people who I’ve forgotten. This argument is not valid, and I beg to differ with the writer, Peter S. Beagle. We need our memories. We need not forget. Again, forgetting has caused enough problems. I for one think that it’s time we start remembering and taking actions based on what we hold deeply due to cumulative experiences. It can only make our individual and collective consciousness elevate to the rafters.

I don’t know. What do you think? Forget or not to forget?

I’ll place this right here

My Allurement for A Growing Consciousness.

Okay, Ancient Alien theories aside, humanity has been evolving for a while now. Reason being is allurement for pleasure or pain. It used to be said that it was love or fear but that is black and white, absolute, and there is no such thing in this world of polarity. Besides you can love pain and fear pleasure so with a little deeper thinking one can see that it truly is what will bring pleasure and what will bring pain.

The allurement of my soul is consciousness. I, personally, love the thought of awareness and how far I can go with it. After all, consciousness is the true spiritual journey; God created the Earth so that through it humanity could know Him/Source/Cosmic Intelligence. For me, this means that I get to enjoy the process of exploration. The peeling back of the layers of self, I love it. The discovery of the depth and width of others, I love it. Coming to terms with the joy and love of life even if it’s through the pain of failure, you guessed it- love it.

We’ve come a long way since our days of Simple Consciousness. To today’s mind of Self-Consciousness, Simple Consciousness seems, well, simple. We’ve gone from being aware that there are animals to our understanding that we are animals.

Just the tip of it.

Now we’re on the move again and that means we’re growing, evolving to Cosmic Consciousness. This means we are realizing that we are one with the Universe. Capital U because the universe is a proper noun. With the realization of the Universe comes our awareness of the Creator in it and all throughout it. Once we meet up with the Creator comes the rule of love, which is the basis of the Cosmos. Finally, and I love this, we become free of all fears of evil, disaster, and/or death. Cosmic consciousness- got to love it.

But that’s not all, I’ve learned that there is a God Consciousness; in which we become one with God. God is in every thought, movement, and deed. Now that’s the consciousness I’m working toward. I want to be like Jesus and say that the Father and I are one. I want to maintain it to the point that I see mountains move. This allurement of God Consciousness is my pleasure even if I must endure pain.

Divine Purpose & 3 Basic Challenges.

There is a job to accomplish on this third rock and I for one will overcome and get my part done. Such unbridled acceptance of responsibility comes with the awareness that there is a task that you and only you can accomplish. Am I saying that it is completed without challenges? No.

When we are determined to check off every item on our soul’s To Do List, the Universe is set for us as well as being in the position to hold us to the Universal Laws and our Divine Personal Vows and Oaths. It seems that if we are going to be agents for the Universe, soldiers in the Army of God, members of the Kingdom here on Earth then we better know the rules, truths, and regulations. That’s because we have to be able to contain all the Universal Energy sent to us in order to check off said goals.

One of the first challenges we face is that of confidence and determination. When we’re advanced in the process of task completion, we just don’t receive much verbal praise. It’s like no one checks on us because it is known that we can and will get the job done. In times of crisis, we turn to Spirit but often hear, “You got this, I believe in you.” This isn’t wanted or desired when we’re facing a herculean challenge. Plus, hearing the famous, “If God bring you to it He’ll bring you through it;” or, “you’ll receive no more than you can bear” is not wanted at the time since it seems too little too late. But it’s true, it’s our initiation, it’s our delivery on a promise that we’ll get a job done. We have to stand in our individual spot because just as we are born alone we are given individual tasks and make our personal vows.

Once we accomplish confidence and determination, there is dealing with staying in our own lane. In other words, jealousy. It is easy to look at your neighbor’s plot and think that the work is less, the supplies are more, and the praise is greater. But this is a quick way we unintentionally block ourselves from the way and road that is for us; most times easier than we assume. God is not one to dole out more for one than for another, different, yes, more, no. Many times we are accomplishing the same thing just at a different level because we are all one. One soul, one matrix.

After individuality and acceptance come keeping our pride in check. Upon accomplishing something it’s easy to say I can do this with out you. Or, I am just a powerful creator like God. Such nonsense makes it easy for the Universe to say “okay, create.” There is a co-creation. And it can just as easily go the other direction- we don’t claim our own works. Unnecessary modesty or false humility. With that, we say “Oh, it was all God.” When in fact we’ve worked hard to get the energy anchored here on Earth to accomplish the job. Either way, it’s a pride issue that has to be dealt with in order to check off things.

That’s it in a nutshell. Well, the middle part at least. Or should I say the bright side of our part of the allegiance and contract with the Universe?

Flash Cooking: The Collective Consciousness of Imagination for Writers

There is a belief that when the Universe gives you a Dream you aren’t the only one to receive this specific dream. As a matter of fact in the book The Dream Giver, it even states that Ordinaries can receive the same dreams and that not everyone accomplishes them. This spiritual formula is also used for writers.

While we are sleeping, our minds travel to lands unreachable while in the form of matter. These lands are wondrous and beautiful. Green, white, purple, gold, and yellow in color. They include halls of healing, learning, playing, and planning and remembering. I think writers travel all these halls because writers need to know how to do all of them. The collective consciousness has selected these individuals to carry the weight of being true teachers for the self-taught and seekers while in the flesh.

When you combine the travels with the assignments a writer receives you get the turtle eggs on the beach situation. Like the baby turtles, many are given the dream of becoming a working writer but few make it from the beach sands’ organic ingredients to the waters of fluid thoughts and creations.

The imagination is a powerful thing and the imagination of a creative writer is an experience with the Divine.

Jumping in Head First: Spiritual Awakening of the Soul.

It is not my belief that God expects us to mysteriously find out who we are as spirits. Instead, we wake up to who we are by being. Following our bliss and doing what makes the soul sing. No matter the twist and turns your journey may take, at some point in time you will be able to say aha! You will see how the broken road you’ve traveled was guided every step of the way. That’s one of the eternal beauties of life on this planet. That is part of the joy in the mystery.

When we do find out what our life is about we are able to move and manifest more quickly. We still depend on Divine grace but not for pulling a small rabbit out of the hat, no. We, as true awaken spirits, now pull hares out of the hat. Pigeons and dragons, especially dragons. Oh, the roar of the dragon when it has been pulled from the birthing hat which we all wear as crowns.

I love the possibility that each and every one of us can pull the beast from our person. I believe that there is an abundance of good souls facing down the bulls in their lives. I say that because I’ve gone through the process of waking up to my soul- at least on a deeper level. See, the process of waking up to the soul takes decades and come in layers; what you know about ourselves at 20 become almost obsolete at 50. Not that what we’ve learned when we’re young is no longer useful but there is a deeper need from God calling us the older we get.

I use to say that this living wasn’t for the faint of heart. I now see that those with a faint heart are the ones that are needed on the front lines because they have the greatest amount of faith, and God loves faith more than he loves himself. No matter how slow they move or how many times they give up there will be a journey that will be manifested by them showing them who they are; because we are eternal and our purpose is to be like God no matter how long or how many lifetimes it takes. So move at the speed of a turtle or slowly sink into the waters if you feel that that’s what’s best for you but know that your hesitation only delays your awareness of the thought process of God and therefore the many gifts that God has for you- including the cool walking and talking with the angels.

In order to do this, you have to be willing to say “I want something different than everyone else” because you are different than everyone else. This my friends take unconditional faith and love, trust and obedience. Qualities which we witness unfolding within ourselves, qualities which we are born with. It’ll happen the more times you repetitively jump in the deep end of spirit. Each time you come back up you’ll look and feel different, more radiant, more stunning, more beautiful because, after all, God loves beauty. Don’t attempt head first diving if you’re not ready just to show off. Just know that it’s safe and the water’s fine and it will support you.

Of course, I say all this now that I’ve awakened to that point of no return and I expect everyone to follow my lead. So think of this post as encouragement to take the leap, head first in the deep end, knowing that if no one else got you God got you and you are never without a life preserver.

Speaking It Into Existence

I learned a very important lesson last week that didn’t explain itself until I was in the shower yesterday.

The magic, the rabbit out of the hat, of Earthly manifestation is a result more of divine spirit at work than the power of the human mind and determination of spirit. Yes, there is a responsibility on the individual to do what needs to be done in order to be a container ready to receive, but, the actual deliverance falls square on the shoulders of God. Why? Because our focus is supposed to be on serving each other not on how will we meet our survival needs- and survival needs are the things which we usually concern ourselves with because as it is said: When in Rome do as the Romans do. But, doing as the Romans will lead to spiritual degradation.

If we are more focused on how we will pay the rent, then our minds are filled with Earthly concerns and not on how we will be the connected Spiritual Beings that we are; living under the harsh circumstances of an appearance of individualism.

I have noticed that when we are practitioners of the various healing modalities and we give in to the fears of how and when will the money arrive we become motivated toward “serving” in a way that attempts to manipulate the process of manifestation of the money/jobs. We muddy the waters and unintentionally make the path that we must take as healers, and beings in general, harder because we can’t fool or disrespect God. Personally, this wouldn’t be too much of a problem if we didn’t have to walk the walk while we’re talking the talk and providing for the whole of creation. In other words, when we are trying to manipulate God to provide when and how we need according to our understanding we can’t think straight and not only can we not see the road before us but we can’t remain the open container for Spirit which is a you thing and not a we thing; but life is a we thing so sadly, it’s a problem.

Having our needs provided is not a test of our ability to walk with and talk about God. Again. waiting for money is not a test of worthiness in the eyes of anyone who is abundant (hint: we all are abundant.)

Sabrina, I said, receiving the money to move is a matter of time because self does not deny self you focus on gently manifesting healing stories that entertain. Be the messenger, Sabrina-Louise. That’s it; nothing more is required. Plan the release of your stories according to your container, not your pocketbook. So, I will! This doesn’t mean that I’m going to skimp on the quantity but instead that I will focus on the quality of my container

I think it is best to look at it like an expense account, do the job without any cheating or manipulation and you will be reimbursed- that’s a promise like the showing of a rainbow after a good rain.

Performing to the Best of Our Abilities- Why?

As I continue to go farther than I’ve gone in a long time, I sit and ponder if I’m doing my best. I hope that I am. I pray that I’m tackling this elephant of a project to the best of my abilities because I’m giving all I have to give. That’s all any of us can do after all: give the best we have. And, even though others may judge our performance lackluster, that’s not always the universe’s point of view.

We know this because we live in a galaxy where there is a law of cause and effect. What you put in is what you get out. There is no one above this law, whether you’re successful or finding yourself in the dumps. But why must we do our best? Why are we wired to push and push and push until we break through in ways we never knew possible? I believe that just as we are wired to seek and to imitate a higher force, we’re designed wanting to do our best. Even those who don’t like to work will do their best because it’s just that . . . their best it’s what they’re wired to do.

Here’s a theory. Say we are, in fact, as science, mystics, and spiritual medicine people proclaim. Meaning that we are all within the creator/maker/universe and the universe/creator/maker is in fact inside of us because it’s all energy. This would mean that each person is likened to a cell within a body, each of us with a job to do in order to keep this body healthy; the body being every nuance in this creation such as the stars in the sky that light the way or the many planets rotating in the manner that we’ve come to expect. Everything moves as designed because everyone does what’s expected and everyone does what’s expected because everything moves as designed. This includes everything, it doesn’t matter what we’re working on, whether we’re doing little things like collecting aluminum cans and other metals for cash or heading million dollar companies, our effort contributes to the whole.

We are wired to do our best and only when we are not in our bliss do we doubt if we’re doing so. It’s like worry; blocking and preventing us from the true exchange of payment, light energy. So I surrender and release my concern of my performance and instead just perform. I sit in the truth that I help the all by doing me and as long as I follow instincts I will no doubt do my best not only because I am in everyone and everyone is in me but because I was wired to do my best.

Final Word: Broken down to the common denominator doing our best is unconditional love and unconditional love is made up of accepted efforts which are too small, incomplete, and undefined as of yet; but still, the effort is our best nonetheless.

Divine Responsibility: The Director’s Chair & Renewal

With the completion of a harvest, the choice becomes either gracefully surrendering to the stage of renewal or experiencing renewal by external forces of circumstance. As we age, we come to discover that being proactive beats being reactive any day. From our wisdom of cycles, we know exactly what time the bounty will come to an end; upon this realization, we begin to daydream on what is next. This is when the conversation with self about self begins and our prayers for a better life enter the universe. Wisdom knows that we don’t have to wait until stockpiles are empty before readying the ground for new seeds. In other words, we don’t need to hit the floor before we begin striving toward a better tomorrow. Plus, if we are truly grounded in the movie of our life, we can pretty much know what is next with a high degree of accuracy.

Many people embrace the statement/belief that life is always a mystery. To a certain extent, this is accurate. When we haven’t grasped the basics when our keychain lacks fundamental keys, then yes, life will remain an unsolvable mystery; excluding our ability to materialize Divine enchantments and miracles as these are keys of unintentional co-creation. But we can walk around with our ring half full only for so long, eventually, we must learn the master’s key of replenishment.

Mastering the art of supervision places the oars in our hands. True, for inexperienced sailors of the sea of this reality, that moment will come when the winds will be the winds and ships will be tossed wildly about. Until that whirlwind strikes though we should place our trust in our manifestation abilities. There’s a saying, “you don’t know what you don’t know” as if you are blindsided. I say, “you know what you know” and that’s what you go with because that’s what will materialize every time. Trust not in the emotions of this movie but in our ability to direct it. Know what needs to go on the editing room floor to have smooth transitions from scene to scene. Listen to a variety of stories on how main characters washed through cycle after cycle as these are guidebooks or director’s scripts.

We do not have to go kicking and screaming. There is no reason to fall to our knees crying. Know who is in the director’s chair of our own film- want ease then plan for ease. Pray; not for the grace and strength to go through what we create but for the clarity to foresee events happening according to our situation as only we know it to be. Above all pray for the Divine like timing with our pacing and execution of stages of life.

Check-In: Forgiveness 1,000 Times Over

The mighty teacher, Jesus, taught to forgive a thousand time over; no matter what is done to you, you shall love your enemies as you love yourself. For the most part, this advice, this wisdom, is followed but as always, when it comes to the manners of men, there’s a catch in our expression of the teaching. It has become common practice to forgive but not to forget. As a matter of fact, children are taught to forgive but never forget. That is not total forgiveness. It is not the act of forgiving a thousand times over, it holds on to the darkness and the cheap drama that we all should be avoiding. There is a difference between turning darkness into love and dealing in a deeper shadow. One of them can perform a total Divine transmutation of low vibrating energy and the other cannot.

Therefore, it’s the hidden gem of self-forgiveness that we should allocate greater attention to, especially since it is the marker of how we are to love others. Like forgiveness of others, forgiveness of self allows you to transform dark into light. Yet, forgiveness of self produces a couple different side effects of love. With self-forgiveness, we can release self-doubt and/or self-hate. We can more easily accept the Divinity which surrounds us and the Divinity which is in us. Like the forgiveness of others which Jesus spoke of, self-forgiveness leaves behind traces of educational lessons in patience, understanding, compassion, clear sight, and/or even unconditional love. These are the qualities needed to forgive others as we are supposed to. These are the makings of reunion with Self. Self cannot be angry at Self because Self is all things love.

Our anger at and fear of the illusion of being separated from God is what cause the difficulty of acting out forgiveness. Therefore, while in our little self, it is wise to hold no expectations of others and believe that everyone is doing their best. Truth be told, this illusion and everything in it is what’s really being forgiven when we perform forgiveness on any level as we are the creator of the dream. The hard time remembering reality is what blocks the inner light of peace from shining outward on this planet- from performing forgiveness as Jesus instructed. That’s why it’s important to forgive a thousand times over and forget everything but the love and blessings. Reach beyond our truth that we can only give at the level of love that we have achieved. Instead, pull on the Divine reality that to really perform the act of forgiveness one must remember that there really isn’t anything to forgive.

We can’t be hurt and all is with the purpose of eliminating the need for this universe that we created. So, forgive and don’t hold on. It’s hard and the Great Mind understands this, deep down you understand this, I understand this which is why while we are weak in our forgiving there is a memory that does it for us. This memory is called Grace and while we’re in the dream we experience this Grace through the Universe- a reflection of the real home.

Forgiveness a thousand times over? Yeah, it makes sense but more importantly, it unites the Self and brings us closer to home. Earn that forgiveness and we eliminate the fragmentation.

From the Keyring: Trust in your Self

With so many self-help books in the bookstores and multiple healing modalities available to study, one forget that we are not broken. There is nothing to fix. This is all an emotional drama which will work out for everybody in the end. I know you may be sitting there thinking, I know a person or two who would beg to differ, in return I would remind you and them that most likely they’re stuck in cheap drama. Type of stuff we see on reality shows- cheap drama. The early process of teaching another how to treat us- cheap drama. We must learn to break away from that sugary sweet drama; but more importantly, we must learn that trusting ourselves is trusting in the wisdom of the Great Mind that created us.

If we stop and put serious thought to how we deal with the challenges of growth, then we would see that we find fault where there should be none since the Self is complete. How egotistical to believe that we can fix something we barely know about. Then again that is part of the human culture. Part of our thinking that something’s wrong, that we can’t trust ourselves enough to be part of the system that was designed by the dreamer as a reflection of reality, has caused the need for contemplation of how we process and live life. It’s scary and we want something to tell us that it will be alright. With that said we can admit our fear and still live in the light which shines the truth that we are not broken and we can trust us to take care of us. Even if we decide to close our heart; who are we hurting? To be truthful, as long as others have no expectations then they will not be hurt and/or disappointment, and we’re not hurting ourselves since 1) we were never truly ‘here’, 2) until the universe is no more, we will always have the choice of continuing to visit, and 3) in this illusion, we need carriers of the shadow, therefore, your black heart help make the world go around.

So, if a dark-hearted one isn’t broken and they trust themselves enough to remain as such then surely those who walk in the light can believe that they too can trust their choices. We are essential parts of the dream, as such we must answer the requisite of making choices, deciding whether we’re going to trust ourselves. I recall hearing that a bird doesn’t trust in the branch but in her wings. I evoke this truth when I begin to worry about my decisions. Our wings are strong, much stronger than those of a bird, the wisdom behind them is incomparable to anything on this planet. And this planet is one wondrous creation.
