๐Ÿ’› The Identity Crisis

Precious Jewels ๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ

Sharing this piece woven from the golden threads that are showing up in front of me as I quietly navigate these turbulent days leading up to the US presidential inauguration. Little gems that reflect the sparkling richness and potential of this time, even as unimaginable horrors seem to unfold around me. Beginning with a nugget of my own lived experience (in response yesterday to a MeWe post thank you Christy), flowing into messages from Jesus, from journalist Anand Giridharadas, and from pastor/writer Patricia Pearce (thank you Sajit). With love๐ŸŒบ

“From the moment I was born, I've lived as a ‘minority’ in so many ways. A finely skilled observer of the ‘system’ and the ‘power structure’ from the outside looking in. Dancing at the fringes of the mainstream. Working at the bleeding edge, excavating the wounds and healing into ever more expansive inclusiveness. Never quite fitting in. No matter how carefully and cleverly I disguised and/or ‘pretzeled’ myself. Being both the catalyst and the ‘go-to’ as well as the ‘whipping boy’ when it suited others. And today I am feeling so infinitely grateful for all of it. For I AM Here Now. And the biggest gift for me of 2020 is the realization that it is no longer of any consequence to me what anyone thinks, says, or does. Every one is free to be exactly who they are in each moment. As am I. And every one is simply doing the best they can in each moment. As am I. For in truth there is no other. As within so without. And so I am coming to trust myself — my True Self — fearlessly, deeply, and completely. Noticing and embracing the familiar feelings of loss, grief, and and loneliness that so often accompany this movement. With my Soul firmly in the driver's seat, growing in confidence, loving unconditionally, blessing indiscriminately, and listening to my inner knowing. Acting wholeheartedly on each powerful response as it arises from the infinite still point within. And doing what is mine to do with fierce compassion, joy, and certainty!”

“The world as a state of being, as a whole, has entered a time, brought on largely by A Course in Miracles, in which readiness for miracle-mindedness is upon it. A Course in Miracles opened a door by threatening the ego. All those who, with egos weakened, walked this world with the hope of leaving ego behind, with miracle-minded intent, have awakened human beings to a new identity. They have ushered in a time of ending our identity crisis. Not since Jesus walked the earth has such a time been upon humankind.”
A Course of Love, C:P.5.
“Leaving the world of ideas and perceptual identity to be a free flowing free spirit, connected to all and free as a bird to indiscriminately bless others, is the answer everyone has looked for and no one has really been able to put into practice... Disease, violence, and racial animosities rage through the land. Our work is cut out for us. This work is to teach about true identity and to encourage others to remove their energy from any and all conflict. — Journey into the Unknown, J125.6 and J181.2
“When we gaze out into the world of ideas, we see conflict based on identity, false identity. Our very powerful blessings encourage choosing love over fear or choosing soul over false identification with the mind/body vehicle. This is how we support the new earth in its infancy, through union... I've asked you each to not judge, evaluate or condemn each other. This includes putting people you don't know into categories for any reason but specifically, perceived income level, gender identity, skin color or behavior, anything that turns your brother or sister into someone who is automatically not as good as or less than. The reasons matter not. It is never, ever true. No one is less than for any reason, not even someone on death row. Everyone is an expression of God, at differing levels of awareness and maturity. End point. Please see innocence and not guilt in each and everyone you encounter. The buck stops with you.”
— Journey into the Unknown, Messages in Union and Relationship, 52 and 82
“It's scary out there right now. It's going to be scary for some time to come... what has been revealed, is ugly. It is what makes democracies die. In the despair, it is easy to lose perspective. I certainly do all the time. But from time to time, I step back and try to remember where we are as a country on the arc of things. And I see then that this is both a very dark time and, potentially, a very bright time. It's important to hold these truths together. When I look down at the ground of the present right now, I feel depressed. If I lift my head to the horizon, I see a different picture... We are falling on our face because we are jumping very high right now. We are trying to do something that does not work in theory. To be a country of all the world, a country made up of all the countries, a country without a center of identity, without a default idea of what a human being is or looks like, without a shared religious belief, without a shared language that is people's first language at home. And what we're trying to do is awesome. It is literally awesome in the correct sense of that word... We are living through a revolt against the future. The future will prevail.”
Anand Giridharadas
“... white culture does not exist as any true expression of identity. Instead, white culture has rested on the idea of dominating those of other ethnicities and cultures. White culture in itself, apart from this role of domination, seems to be a void. A non-thing. This in part is what is occurring in the uprising of white supremacy. As the nation becomes increasingly multi-cultural, there is no sense of identity, no sense of selfhood for white people apart from that of the dominator. It it this restoration of a true and life-affirming identity that is needed now. Who are you as a “white” person? You are immigrants of many cultures, lands in which the skin color of the people happened to be fair. Can you see the absolute absence of meaning in this? How fragile an identity it is that relies upon skin color?... It is then the task of all people, especially white people in this country, to address the roots of this assumed supremacy, roots which exist in the mind.”

๐Ÿ’› To So Love the World
       Tuesday 12 January 2021

Precious Jewels ๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ

Life is full of every moment gifts. The more open and still I can be, the more they seem to show up. Or perhaps the more able I am to recognize, receive, and integrate them. Expanding my ability to live as Love in Form, in the world exactly as it is now. Seamlessly, both Human and Divine. Giving everyday meaning to the phrase “For God so loved the world...” Here are two that arrived in my inbox in the last few days. Beautifully encouraging me to persevere. To love unconditionally and bless indiscriminately — taking action as it arises from within — wholeheartedly! Remembering that every single one of us is simply doing the best that we can. Imperfectly perfect as we are, right here and now. The first message is from Jesus (thanks to Rick Greathouse), and the second from Hannah Arendt (thanks to Anand Giridharadas and Ann Heberlein). Take your pick, or enjoy Both/And!๐Ÿ˜ƒ With so much love to all ๐ŸŒบ

“Dear Brethren, It is I, the one known as Jesus. Let us stay with the assault on the U.S. Capitol Building as a case study on how the maturity of soul can affect thoughts and behavior. There were those who were called to drive or fly to Washington DC and didn't. They didn't think it was the right thing to do. There were those who gathered to hear the President's speech but did not go past the barriers to the steps of the building. There were those who went past the barriers but stayed on the steps. Then there were those who entered the building, after force was used. In all of these examples, soul maturity played a significant role. Then, there were the heartfelt prayers of love and peace sent by those who were watching events unfold on TV. These helped this situation from getting even worse because those who were able to listen, heard love's viewpoint. We have much to do and together, we have the power to change this world into one that only reflects our true nature, which is love. Love and Power, Jesus, your brother in Christ”

From Anand Giridharadas, 12 January 2021 —

“For me, this strange, unsettling moment in American life is defined by the feeling that nothing is possible and everything may be. Last week was the insurrection. Next week, with luck and without a working Parler app, is the inauguration. In between there is dread and hope. There is a philosopher for every moment, and it's hard to think of one better suited to the mixed bag of this one than Hannah Arendt — the German-born, Jewish, American political philosopher and author of such enduring works as ‘The Origins of Totalitarianism’... Today I'm bringing you my interview with the author of a new biography, ‘On Love and Tyranny: The Life and Politics of Hannah Arendt’. Ann Heberlein is a Swedish scholar and author, and I knew I wanted to talk to her when I read these words about what she believes we today can learn from Arendt: “to love the world so much that we think change is possible.” —
And a taste of Anand's interview with Ann Heberlein:
“What can we learn from the iconic political thinker Hannah Arendt? Well, the short answer may be: to love the world so much that we think change is possible. This is a moment when so many people rightly feel the opposite. “It would be wonderful to live, if not only world history was so awful,” Arendt once wrote in a letter to her friend Kurt Blumenfeld in 1952. It is easy to sympathize with her feelings. The world and humanity often disappoint us... Arendt had been reconciled with the incompleteness of life, with the fragility of the world. She believes that it is a duty to love the world. Amor mundi, “love of the world,” means caring for life so that it can continue to exist. We must be able to love the world as it is, in all its brokenness and imperfection. To achieve that requires hope, hope that change is possible, hope for the future. Hope is necessary.” — Ann Heberlein

๐Ÿ’› Patience
       Saturday 9 January 2021

Precious Jewels ๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ•ธ

Early the other morning, a bobcat walked by not six feet beyond the glass patio door where I was sitting. The sun was brightening, melting away the fine coating of snow that had fallen overnight. She strolled in from the woods through a gap between the house and the fence, ambled by me so suddenly and so close she had me blinking in disbelief. I called out to Colin, and together we watched this powerful creature round the length and breadth of the patio and disappear back into the woods through a gap in the far corner. We'd had a brief yet loud exchange just moments before and I knew there was a message for us in her visit. Why on earth else would the magical feline venture this close to our house? A quick search produced this “The bobcat is a symbol of patience.” How perfect! Patience with myself first, and patience with my precious husband, as so much is swirling and changing all around us. And today I see Celia Fenn telling us “to be patient and allow the old to fall apart and disintegrate. This is not easy. It demands of us that we draw on all that we have learnt and mastered ... feeling the Oneness at the Heart of All Things.”

This is the year of being a wholehearted SOULfull oasis of patience, peace and compassion. Right here and now in the midst of all that seems to be crumbling into chaos. It is time to be the change for real. To step up and walk the talk, with ourselves first and with each other. Less talking about oneness. More living oneness without separation. Less talking about love. More being the love that's called for. Less talking about acceptance. More radiating understanding and acceptance. Less talking about the light arriving on the planet. More shining our own, nourishing by our very presence, healing simply by witnessing in stillness. Attending to all that is arising from the infinite peace, compassion, and abundance of the still-point within. Listening for what is uniquely ours to do. In brief, less talking about New Earth. More being an example of the kinder, gentler world that is arising. It is here right now. Awaiting our willingness and availability to claim it and bring it through our bodies into form. Each one of us doing the best we can do, one moment at a time. Your part is everything. My part is everything. And together we are infinitely unimaginably powerful. Are you with me? With so much love ๐ŸŒบ

“Stand up and be counted. Be part of the solution to the problem, instead of the problem itself. Shout this from the rooftops. There is something very real inside all bodies, all forms. The eternal soul wants to claim dominion on the earth after being shut out for millions of years. A human body being consciously driven by a soul will produce very different effects than one being driven by ego. Show your love and consideration for all of creation and be patient with your sisters and brothers. They don't know what they do, to quote the Bible again. It really isn't their fault that they think and behave as they do. Show them that there really is a different way by simply living the new way, the way of Mary. When called to action, show others the way of Jesus, in a way and manner that only you can do.” — A Journey Into the Unknown, J70

From Celia Fenn, 8th January 2021 —

“Dear Friends, January will continue to be a turbulent month that will offer many surprises. 2021 will be much the same. 2021 is a Bridge year...from the Old Energy to the beginning of the next super cycle of 2 000 years called the Age of Aquarius. As we put our foot on the bridge to move forward, we are still surrounded by the effects and echoes of the old. So January will offer us an opportunity to complete old issues and do a final release. By mid year we will be half way across the bridge, and by the Lions Gate in August we will be approaching the other side and we will begin to discern the shapes of our new lives.

So, for now we need to be patient and allow the old to fall apart and disintegrate. This is not easy. It demands of us that we draw on all that we have learnt and mastered in recent years regarding our shadow, projection and staying in the Sacred Heart of the Unified Field. When we understand that there is no "us" and "them" and that what triggers us is simply an aspect of our own (collective) and shadowy energy. Then we can move into the Heart and begin to see with Love and Compassion and a feeling of the "Oneness" at the Heart of All Things. This will become easier in the course of the year as the Aquarian energy becomes more tangible and we begin to see what our path will be.

Remember, that at this time there are several timelines/dimensions running at the same time in the same space. We are. choosing where to go and what to manifest and we need to have a very clear idea of what resonates with our Heart and Soul, and to follow that. Stay calm, dearest friends, stay in your Heart space and keep focused on what you are creating. You are Loved and you are Supported by the Angelic Realms and by Archangel Michael, as well as the Galactic Families. The "Bigger Picture" promises a Golden Age of Peace once the old is gone and the New arises. Love and Peace to All...especially my friends in the USA at this time.”
