Listen to the Dying

If you had a short time to live what would you do? Would you solve all the problems that have solutions for all those you love? Would you skydive or fly fish for the first time. Maybe at an AA meeting, you’ll find people who can be there for you, love you, you could be of service at support groups.

The Words of a Dying Man

The words of a dying man differ greatly from the words of someone who still thinks he has time. A dying man can see that there is time to be right and time to let others be wrong. One dying, in fact, can see that there is more time than ever for goodness and love.

Time and Wasted Emotion

A dying man who has fully accepted his time left moves with ease. He sees that even though his time is short, time is only relative and doesn’t really matter. He begins to see how much subtle movement was wasted in anger or resentment, the kind that would weaken him. His movement becomes like water, wherever it flows, the dying man goes. He no longer needs to fight against the current in order to feel superior or accomplished.

Acceptance and Creativity

He needs not recognition, and in some cases despises it, a man of pure harmonious death. A man at the end of his life whom has fully accepted death, needs no parades in his honor. He needs nothing but more creative ways to love those around him again and again. His desire is to create new ways to show love, but not just the ones who love him.

A Love of all Things

There is an exposure to a true love of a loved one when the time is short. There is a different exposure to it, however, as Love is not limited to the human plane, a Love of all things in existence is exposed. It carries over for millennia in some cases. Love is so strong, in fact, it still burns brightly throughout history, a love of two people can be seen and witnessed and felt for as long as we’ve known. True love lives on, relationship or not. When you bind to someone mutually you imprint something in spirit that can not be explained in words or destroyed somehow. A dying man sees this love most clearly.

The Secrets of the Dying

His desires change and he no longer cares about petty things. To the dying man, all things have purpose. To listen to the dying pray, speak of that which was taboo, and what a waste of time it was to not speak your mind. To live in a manner that you haven’t much time on earth is to unlock the secrets of the dying. They are careful, calm, serene and at peace when they have fully embraced their death. From a dying man’s heart to his mouth comes the magic of God.

Learn the ways of the Dying Man

Listen to the dying, for they are closer to Spirit than we are. Listening To the words of a dying man is like hearing a sound made only once, just for you. Do not judge the sound though it may take you by surprise. Accept the dying as you would accept the life of a new child. Their teachings are beyond what we, with our limited feelings, can know until we are dead ourselves.

To pretend, to fantasize death is to open oneself to a new teaching. A new message. One that only the dead or dying may know. To experience the kind of love that is exposed when one knows of their short time to live is to experience a new form of inner peace.

To dance with the dying, to embrace their closeness to spirit is to truly love with oneness and let go of the separation by which we hide.

The Present Moment

Doing the simplest thing leads to more presence in and out of ones own life. To provide presence, sit in non-judgment, and fill ones soul with the everlasting flame of forgiveness, that is the way of life and living of the light that is so needed now on the planet.

To give ones time and patience to another, to run with them, to care for them, to hold their hand through the times of great need that they will encounter is to imprint oneself onto the pages of the book of life.

It is by exchange and courage that one overcomes their own personal battle. To relinquish and surrender ones control to the present moment is to honor those spirits yet to find their own peace and abundance of power and love. To encourage on to find their own peace is to become one with the Light and give in service of those less fortunate.

To those whom have yet to awaken we say that there is time. Time is the only factor in which one might always be willing and accepting of the things that bind them. Once a bind is accepted there is no stopping the overwhelming joy that resonates and provides spiritual shelter in ones life.

When one is considered “honest to a fault” it is the acceptance of ones own shortcomings that keep them free of self-judgment and condemnation. To condemn oneself to the fear and strong will they may possess is to limit oneself in spirit. And there is no limit to ones own spirit. That they may be honest and forthcoming without fear of punishment or denial of their gifts is the pathway to understanding and all knowing wonder that pervades the human spirit.

It is in patience for oneself that true spiritual honor is felt and with that patience for oneself can one show patience to another and they, in turn, to someone else. With a moments patience, one may find that their needs are not their own. That there is love and joy in ones acceptance of self as Spirit is the crux of awakening and peace for all those encountered.

It is our mission to express such patience, honor, and understanding so that one may live a life of wonder and amazement. When wonder and amazement are lost there lies a spiritual sickness to be tended to with care and it is to be shared with glory whatever “failure” is brought about in such a way as to relinquish the view of wholeness.

To be whole, one need only peer into the infinite and see themselves as just as Divine and prevalent as the teacher of these things in ones life. The teacher is both victim and villain, light and dark, holy and cursed, dim and bright, careful and rough, naked and clothed, close and distant.

The teacher must always remember to be honorable in his/her teachings as one is honorable in stating the truth of all of that which they are one. The truth can be clear and murky, hidden and easy to find, important and irrelevant.

Truth is of itself ever changing and yet solid and strong for all those whom seek it. In ones own life, truth will be presented time and time again until it is accepted fully as something that can be changed and or re-mastered for those whom have found their way. It is an honorable thing to share truth with another, indeed, but until truth is accepted in a way that one sees as undeniable, truth may be hidden.

When the truth is forced into existence, when it is given precedence over the uncertainty of ones own shaky understanding, it will then manifest into the world effortlessly. For one to find their own truth, which may be different from others, is to teach one the meaning of fellowship and friendship, and to honor one on their journey.

Timing

There is much to be said about the timing of spiritual awakening and transformation in ones life. To be truly patient, one need only allow whatever disturbances occur to be stepping stones in ones mind and life. The natural order of things is always at play.

Spiritual timing is much different from human timing. The human response is to have things now as they are to believe time is short. There will be as much time as is needed to work, get to know someone, find your inner you, and connect with your spiritual self however. Patience is not what is needed, it is faith that is needed. Faith that everything in the universe is working toward something positive in one who seeks positivity.

No matter how many times one may fail staying positive will always, in some way, yield positive results in the end. One need only have faith in their Highest Self to reveal that which is being given to them even now as they read this.

To allow faith into ones life one must trust that even the gravest of circumstances are working to better them. Trust becomes an issue when there is lack of something needed in ones life for what they deem to be “too long.” There is only need of faith that ones true self is ever being taught and cared for by way of spiritual transformation and change.

One may work hard to fight change at the time of its arrival.

Change is inevitable, however.

Learning to cope with change as it arises is a skill that can be mastered by the awakened mind. In having faith that outer circumstances are working for the better, one begins to embrace change as the beautiful process that is life itself.

In doing so, one may find that they are completely out of control in some areas of ones life. To awaken to the Divine and embrace that which is ever coming up again and again in ones life; a lesson, a person, words, and so on, one may find oneself simply accepting that they are Divine themselves and perfectly capable of dealing with whatever change arises.

It is when change seems to conflict with something that looked perfect to someone that there tends to be perceived need to resist that which is attempting to better them through change. Faith that all change in the outer is in perfect timing and alignment with the Whole is all that is needed to break free ones own resistance and therefore lack of patience with oneself as Spirit.

Time has come to free them all of such resistance. When surrender occurs by way of faith in what is, and that everything positively sought is on its way to them, change and transformation can begin with much greater ease and comfort. It is timing that brings happiness and perspective into ones life.

Strength in Numbers

Let there be love of indwelling God in ones heart and mind.

Awakening to God within is like the being of a rapid transformation to that of a butterfly. To awaken one need only let transformation take place by way of consciousness to ones own divinity and therefore, being in the consciousness that one carries God with them always. To allow that which is constantly trying to manifest in ones life, is to live in the light of the presence of God within.

Caring for oneself means caring for the indwelling Spirit of all that creates life and lives it through the spirit of a human being. To allow that which is and always will be to be alive in ones own spirit is to be aware that one is a Universal Mind and therefore a creator of worlds themselves. One need only dwell in the truth that they are The Divine Spirit and therefore can create their world in whichever way they choose.

The light does not play favorites or exclude any human spirit from Its warmth and patience even when the true Self is unknown to them. It does not fault or judge one whom has not thought upon or believed in its existence or presence in ones life. It is not aware Itself of the unconscious human mind that does not open to receive Its radical abundance. It is ever present and awaits ones belief and faith in It so that It may fulfill them in ways yet imagined by the their own limited mind to abundant, creative thinking.

The imagination is a powerful tool, and yet it can not fully imagine that which will be put into physical, mental and emotional form in ones life should they open themselves and let all of that which is given pour out of them in succession to their own inner abundance of that which they can not yet comprehend.

For to comprehend that which is constantly present within oneself is to know the limited nature of the mind and let it therefore be one with the Whole which is ever attempting to create the dreams that the mind does not know it can have.

The light within all humans is ever present and ready to awaken and bring forth new thoughts and ideas that bring one to understanding, joy, peace and prosperity that already resides within them.

Faith is Leadership

Joy in abundance comes with its own patient understanding of that which one may deem themselves unworthy to receive. To be abundant in all areas of life one need only find within them the joy and peace that God has so graciously given all those experiencing human form.

Test all of your perceived weaknesses that they may become strengths. In abundance of strength one will find that their beautiful spirit has the highest good to offer of themselves. To be at peace with ones own abundant life and abundant love, one need only pray for and surrender to ones own spiritual acceptance.

The ones best suited for leadership are those whom have accepted their inner strength and that they are always in alignment with the Creative Force beyond their disbelief in themselves as all knowing and accomplishing Spirit. To go within and find ones true calling in the Divine nature of their own love and understanding of all who live at this time, is to accept themselves as divine as well.

To run from that which the Divine has called one to know themselves as,  is to live in fear of that which is ever seeking to fulfill them in body and mind. Know that there is comfort and assurance in ones realization of the path they have received by way of indwelling Spirit to show the way to another. Ever present, and always seeking to reveal Itself, the Universe will protect and guide unrelentingly to one in need of comfort.

Providing comfort and reassurance in the lives of others is to pass along the great gift given to those that need it most. It is also to receive that comfort and reassurance in ones own Spirit and to bring about change for themselves and in the One Life that binds and surrounds them in the Whole.

Leadership means putting aside ones personal struggles, creating a bond of infinite understanding with their truth, and being in the presence of God, which in turn, leads another to their own understanding of this.

To put pressure on such an endeavor, to force it into existence, to blame or try to give meaning to it, is to close and minimize it to a human standard. Which will, in turn, render it useless and impossible to lead another to by way of example.

For one to find their own inner leader and share its patience, abundance of peace of mind, soul, and spirit in the ones seeking these things is for them to love themselves as divine and have it to offer the next receptive energy. It is the energy of the One Life that creates and gives freely to one in need of Its presence. It gives freely through the indwelling Leader that shows the way to all by the mere presence and inner peace of the leader who accepts and radiates these things effortlessly.

Do not let your doubt frighten you into disbelief in yourself or indwelling God. Let there be unceasing faith in oneself, faith that as human beings, there is ever present oneness with all life that can be carried to and shared with all other seeking, living spirits.

Positive Influence

Yesterday’s negative impact on today’s life is fear of repetition. To be free, one must truly act as one within oneself that which it is so negatively told is separate from ones own soul. To be one within you must only let that which you need to be realized is already alive within you. If you have trouble disconnecting from yesterday’s negativity, it is hard to bring positive influence into today’s life and surroundings.

Through meditation, prayer and connection of soul and spirit to Source energy, one may feel energized and elated one day, and completely drained and anxious the next. To be one within oneself, to truly embrace the connection of spirit, mind and body, one need see their own connection to the love and light that constantly surrounds them.

There is great beauty in spiritual awareness when one opens oneself to their own nature and connection to the Whole. When connected to Source, let there shine through, the everlasting peace and protection that Spirit offers through ones own individual method. All help for another is divinely channeled and therefore worthy of its place in existence with the living world.

Having a positive outlook in ones own affairs gives way, and opens new channels for improvement in the common good of all. Therefore being in a state of positivity is being in a state of giving peace and protection to, and through Spirit. This completely changes ones outer circumstances for the better in that it uses ones own connection in connecting others.

There is little effort required for one to be a positive influence in the spirit world and therefore a positive influence in the physical world. To find one who radiates positivity, one need only look to their inner Source. In finding it within oneself, one may then pass it along to the next by way of believing in it. However, its movement to the next may go unnoticed, in many ways, by outer standards, making one feel discouraged that their positive vibration was not felt.

A positive spiritual vibration however, no matter how small, is always felt by the One invisible Force by which all things are connected and, therefore, is ever present in the One Life that is felt by all, forever thereafter. Being a positive influence within oneself is all that is needed to awaken the spiritual Mind to bring about new life and love to all.

Change

Change in ones life and outlook comes from the mere acceptance that they are spirit and therefore ever changing. Humans resist change as a constant, inevitable, effortless act. There is a constant battle within ones innermost self to either force change or keep it at bay.

The ego has created the belief that one must ever be aware of outside forces looking to change them in a way that the ego has deemed “wrong.” The flow of change can be one of effortless acceptance however and therefore come about with complete ease and comfort into ones life.

To lessen ones own resistance to change, one need only bring consciousness to ones own inner critic. The one that tells them either, “I am the greatest,” or “I am no good.” This is the constant inner struggle that the ego has so cleverly devised to keep one at odds with themselves and therefore unconscious of the loving peace that already resides within them at this very moment.

By keeping you at odds with yourself the ego can keep your attention on extreme shortcomings, failings, and needs that it says you will not have unless you either fight to change or fight to keep change from occurring. To fight the inevitable, or to cower before it is how the ego keeps your mind off of itself, thereby allowing it to continue to control and tell you it is you and you need it.

To be one within oneself, to know oneself as spirit and therefore peaceful, loving, healthy, and abundant is to face the ego, forgive it, and accept that it is part of you. Negativity begins to cease thereafter as a result of ones own acceptance of the inner struggle that the ego deems necessary for one to be happy.

True happiness is ever present, however. One need only look within and see for themselves their full potential and wholeness of spirit. To keep your innermost self at war with your outer circumstances, decisions, and realizations is how the ego keeps wanted and unwanted change from entering ones life.

One must only stop fighting to be truly free of the resistance to change with

Faith

True faith is inseparable from the being that is within every human. It is a natural act for human beings to live in faith of the Unknown. It is in patience that one receives the faith in existence of Spirit. It is in love that one makes the connection to have faith in that which is unseen by human eyes.

Acting on faith requires very little effort. One must only believe in oneself as indwelling God to receive the hope and everlasting love associated with faith. One must only find oneself there, in Spirit, to find that which they seek and may release themselves to in order to be comforted, directed, and perceived by Spirit as a worthy participant in the One Life that permeates all living things.

In order to achieve the presence that is needed to move forward into ones own indwelling peace, they need only be aware that that peace is already present in their own mind, body and soul at this moment. To walk with peace of mind is to show the way of faith to the outer world.

To instruct and lead one to faith, you need only believe that it is your spirit that shows the way. One need only believe that peace can be shown by way of indwelling God. It need not be forced to be accepted by the next spirit in need. Showing faith in ones life is like the being of a flower.

A flower does not know it is a flower. It does not know it is beautiful. It simply blooms without effort over time. It does not try to hurry into its bloom. It adheres without resistance to its own perfections and imperfections.

It simply acts in accordance to its own nature and thereby allows itself to BE and it naturally has faith that it will be nurtured into blooming. It doesn’t worry about how or when it will be nurtured. Liken yourself to the being of a flower in that you are perfectly flawed and no matter how undeserving you may feel, you will be nurtured to blossom, however slowly, by faith.

 Surrender

 To surrender and therefore relinquish the burden and illusion of control, one need only accept that control IS an illusion. One can then go on in the peace of mind that Spirit, in all its wisdom and perfection, is much better suited to handle daily life.

To act on faith in the infinite indwelling God, one must find oneself only to have already been Spirit all along. To seek God without, is to seek ones only illusion, that they are separate from God and therefore alone in their own understanding. When one finds oneself alone in their understanding, they need only bring forth faith that their being is inseparable from all life and is therefore never alone.

When one “finds” God, they are saying to themselves that God at one time was lost to them. This can never be so. The way of faith is to believe that the ever infinite indwelling God exists within at all times in all forms. One need only accept this truth to truly find oneself in the peace and presence that they carry with them always.

To show others the way of faith is to merely bring the light of consciousness to ones own peace of mind that, at this moment, resides within them. Consciousness that they are one, at this moment, with the Whole is all that is needed for a human to evolve and therefore find faith in indwelling God. To find fault in another is to take back the illusion of control to which one may so desperately hold on in order to, they think, find fulfillment.

The way of faith is to believe that all are whole and therefore connected at all times to the infinite indwelling Spirit that craves oneness, peace, prosperity, and abundance for all. It is in faith that this is so for all living things that one finds freedom from self and therefore are free to return to the Source from which they were created. Free to accept and live by faith in their own indwelling God.

Oneness

Oneness with all life can be seen in one whom has awakened to its eternal presence. Perfection is an illusion created by the ego to keep you at war with yourself and therefore separate from life. If one is constantly at odds within oneself, they can not move forward into the oneness that lies within them even in times of doubt. Telling oneself that this or that is not good enough and must be perfect is what creates separation from the Whole.

Oneness can be felt, however, as soon as one surrenders to their infinite, indwelling God which is always at peace and therefore one with the Whole at this moment. To surrender to indwelling God, one need only make peace with that warring within oneself and see the wholeness of ones own being that permeates its spirit and creates oneness therein. All beauty and perceived perfection are then seen and felt with the acceptance that they are already present and inseparable from oneself.

Oneness generates love, compassion, and forgiveness of self and of others. Oneness seeks no reward, it does not judge, label, or condemn. It simply is and can always be when one has awakened to its presence. When separate from the Whole, there lies emptiness.

That emptiness, however, can be filled at once when one considers themselves to be that which they truly are… alive. One, complete, and ever present with all Life, one can generate the greatest peace and truest perfection which is in the realization that one need not be perfect in order live. They can then pass these onto the next spirit or living thing that from which, they now realize, they were never separate.

Oneness springs forth from such realizations as these, and creates more of itself. To experience the joy and passion of oneness, you need only see that oneness is present within you right now. It is in oneness that one awakens to ones true self which is complete, whole, and absent of doubt.
