I have thought about that, how could there be no beginning?
That used to drive me nuts trying to figure that out. When I was a teenager I thought about that, I never was able to find anyone to give me an answer.
I believe today that is the way it is. Like the air I breathe how can there be air if I can’t touch or see it, I just go on in faith that I will have air, so God, to me, is like that.
God is much more than that, at the same time God is that. If I take time trying to get a certain answer it could drive me insane. I know the answers will come in time. I accept God, as God, it is simpler. I have felt the love of God and I have seen God in action through others and through myself.
My eyes see God, I see God through the sun, the moon, I see beauty; I look at the trees, and see strength. I look at the sky and see compassion; I look at birds and see oneness in the moment. I look in the mirror and I see the love of God. We are here forever; our Soul helps us remember that. Our Soul helps us remember the things we have forgotten. I came to believe we are all one; actually I am coming to remember we are all one.
Our Spirit is forever and are Soul lets us know that. When I am quiet and just listening, when I forget every thing I think I know about the spirit I get answers from within. When I make my mind clear I have experienced that I am one with the Spirit; I have no beginning and no end.
When I just am who I am and sit, I can feel the peace and I get answers to questions. I believe that is how God, the Spirit speaks to us. When I am in that state, I am full of peace, I have no fear; so I have no blocks from the Spirit, then God can speak to me.
My Soul then helps me to remember what I already know.
I believe that we are not here to so call teach, we are not here to learn, we are here to unlearn what we have been taught in our childhood, in society, in this material world. I believe we were born knowing all, since we are spiritual beings having a human experience we have developed some human habits and because we have the humanness within us we do learn and we do teach each other to remember who we really are so when I think about it we do teach each other to unlearn what we have learned as human beings and so we can remember the truth of who we really are. "Children Of God." Our Soul reminds us what we already know; we know all.
We came from God and we are still from God. The Soul tells us we are part of God, we live forever, when we get in touch with the fact that we are part of God, then we get a peace within ourselves and fear goes away. Remember all that I am saying is my beliefs and what I feel is to be true for me. Everyone has his or her own truth that is what is important. What is true for me may not be for you, that is because we all are unique and have are own special personalities that is a gift.
We all have something to share with each other; the gift of God is within each and every one of us to share.
I believe we help each other to remember what we already know, we just forgot, we have it so deeply imbedded in our subconscious mind.
We are Spirit, Soul, and Body. Spirit is God, the Absolute, the Word; we are a part of God. We are part of the Absolute, we are part of the Word, and some people say we are God. I believe when we get our human selves out of the way then there is God so that makes us God, that means we are Absolute. I believe the Soul is the Law, the Law tells us what we already know, but our humanness seems to forget. The Soul is the subconscious mind; the Soul provides the power and action within us.
The body is the shell, the human part the form we chose to live in; the body has conditions, the Spirit and Soul has no conditions. The Spirit gave us a choice that is how we have free will. The human part is able to act on that free will.
Have you ever acted on something and felt terrible?
I have! I have acted on something and felt real bad; I believe the soul is what our conscience is.
The Soul tells us what we already know, so if I am doing an action and it does not feel right then it is my Soul telling me not to continue that action. It is I, as the human being, who has to make the decision of listening, paying attention to the Soul, or doing free will. The Soul and Spirit are one, the Spirit and Soul work together, the Soul is like the messenger to the human; letting the human being remember what he or she already knows, "We know all." Since we’re spiritual beings having a human experience, we may believe we have a separation from God; we don’t we’re one with God. We just choose to express God in this experience as being human.
Masters seem to have that down pat; they can be in this world and at the same time not be of this world. They know the Spirit within, and they know what their Soul is telling them.
We are the same as they are; they just choose to use that gift more often. I believe that we can benefit from reading about these masters.
Take Jesus for example, Jesus said in the bible;
"The Kingdom of heaven is at hand," (meaning within) we all have it within it is up to us what we choose and how much we choose to remember. So the Kingdom of God is not a place it is "Within our deepest thought,"
kingdom of God is, "The consciousness of God." Have you watched little children? Little children open themselves to the love of God. We must be like children, be open and trusting.
Children do not know what sin is or what old habits are, they just trust and go with Love they go with the flow. Children seem to be more into remembering who they really are.
Children see and know the kingdom of God.
They just don’t know that they have knowledge of it. As time goes by they tend to get into the humanness and forget who they really are, they forget the God consciousness.
When I see a baby, I think of being like that; open and trusting with out fear.
That helps me remember
the oneness of God that I am.
I believe that we choose the experiences we live in life. We also have the right to change and re-choose what our experience is to be, that is why each day we have a choice on how to live the day. We have no control of people, but we do when it comes to ourselves. I chose to experience my life, I also re-choose as life progresses; I can start over anytime in the day. What a gift we have. We have perfection within ourselves we can share it with each other, we can express ourselves to each other and we can be ok with ourselves. We were given a gift, that gift is unlimited, be grateful for your gifts. I have perfection within me; I have poise, power, and love within me.
God the power, the All Knowing, is within me. The living Spirit is whole and is within me. The Spirit never dies, so I will never die, life goes on.
We go on to different experiences we never die we go to another existence.
I had an experience I was sleeping, I thought I was leaving my body it was so real it felt like I was blending in with the universe, kind of like in meditation it felt like I was out of my body. It was in November of 2002 it was like I was being guided of what death feels like. It was an awesome experience maybe as time goes by I will understand it better and can explain it better.
It was like I was leaving my body I felt myself go out of my body and I told myself to go with it don’t be afraid it is ok. It was so real I woke up and I just knew it was real. I don’t know if I was dieing, or if I was just in the state of when our Spirit leaves the body in the dream state. I have heard we do leave our body when we sleep I will continue to talk with God and meditate on that experience. I am grateful for that experience it was not the first time I experienced something like that. But it sure was another awakening for me.
We are blessed with Gods gift of abundance. You have abundance. I have abundance. You have all. I have all. You have it today. I have it today. We always have it. Like the trees they do not lack for leaves, so we do not lack we are just as important as the trees. The flowers bloom, so we bloom. Nothing can keep me from God except my lack of faith and we can have faith if we just believe. If we believe, we have all; if we believe we do receive, and so it is.
I believe I am a child of God. I am one with God. I am the place where God shines through, and so it is. I am never alone or lonely; you are never alone or lonely. I have God within me, you have God within you and because of that we’re all one and never ever alone. I do not choose my friends, God the Power, the Divine provides me with companions. I love, and love is within me. I have forgiveness within me, and because of that I forgive and forgive myself.
God forgives so I forgive, God does not keep my mistakes, God keeps my love, and so I keep love. Where there is God there is no fear, if there is God there is no sin, if there is God then there is not doubt. If there is God then there is love. If there is God there is perfection. With God there is all and with all there is God and so it is. God in every breath, God in every step we take.
Have you ever thought what would happen if you had no one except yourself?
That thought frightened me. I did not like to be alone because I thought I was alone so I had it in my head that being a lone is lonely. I now like to be by myself because then it is God and I.
That is when I can get out of the way and let God work through me. That is when I learn to let God within me out, and then I am able to let God out when I am with other people. So let’s all let the love out and share with each other we are never alone.
The saying that I have heard and have said at times about the teacher will appear when the student is ready. I believe means God is the teacher and the human is the student and when we are centered with God in that peaceful state of either meditation or just letting God shine through us then we do not need to learn because we know and are remembering for that time in that state of moment.
Because of the humanness we possess free will we have; we do need to learn. We are not in that peaceful serene state all the time.
That is one reason why I say, "I am grateful for others." When people cross my path I choose to be open to hear not just talk because as a human being I need to hear what they have to say, if I really do believe God speaks through others. So we as the Soul,
Spirit does not need to be taught. We or I should say I need to just remember; we as the human we I shall say me in this case I need to be taught from the Spirit.
The Spirit is within you so when you are centered with the Spirit you can teach others and you can teach me, that is how I perceive all this.
I remind you once again every thing written in these chapters are my beliefs and opinions; and experience in this life I have lived so far. I can’t wait to see what more I will experience in this journey in life. Also some of the words written are repeated using different words or expressions meaning the same things. I do that because I need to hear it more then once I repeat it for myself. It helps me really see what is being written, it helps me let go and let the spirit work through me on paper.
Thank you God.
