Why A…Journey of Freedom 02.12.0

It is important to begin each Journey with an intention. Why are you doing this? What do you expect to examine? What do you hope to gain? Without an intention, there is no focus; this is a basic concept in goal-setting. When the intention is set at the start, it becomes the measure, the standard, for every interaction: Does this interaction live up to my standard? Does this interaction help or hinder my goal?

Today, take some time to think and write about what freedom means to you, and why you are interested in delving into yourself and your Self to discover more about freedom.

Why

The simplest answer for me to Why is: “Focusing on Freedom feels like the next natural step after Creation”.

“Journey of Creation” really put me in touch with Divine Co-creation: trust, faith, and reliance on the Divine. The Divine is in everything–in me, in every molecule-atom-energy pulse, in every breath, in every thing. There is nothing that is not God. All of the activity in All of Life is God in Action. Every molecule-atom-energy pulse within “me” is God in Action.

God is total Fulfillment, absolute Peace, perfect Creation. What has God created that isn’t these things? Nothing. Every animal, insect, plant, mineral, or element is perfect.

When I am in harmony with God, with the perfection that is in All of Life…what more is there?

That is freedom.

That is Why I want to do this “Journey of Freedom”: I want to dig in to this, to really, fully bring this quality of trust, faith, reliance on the Divine as total Fulfillment, absolute Peace, and perfect Creation into my being, into my existence, into my life, into my expression, into my work, my career, my service, my relationships–everything.

I want to live in perfect faith in the perfection of God’s creation, including me and my life.

An Open Letter of Gratitude

Dear Mary, Lita, and Amy, (and anyone doing the work), 

On Thursday, Amy completed day 40 of Journey of Creation. On Friday, she sent me an email with six words: “Feeling SO much gratitude for you”.

Six words. And I felt it.

So I went into the feeling of gratitude and returned it to Amy.

That then expanded to thinking/feeling about all three of you: the three people who have given me so much over the past five months. I wept with gratitude for the three of you, for your being, for your willingness, for your courage and beauty and creativity, your actions, your contributions, your lives. (I still have tears of joy and gratitude, and I began this over an hour ago…)

Here is a small metaphor for what you gave me, what I saw in your actions, and what you/we are contributing to humanity through accomplishing these Journeys.

When geese fly in a “V”, the lead goose bears the full-force of air resistance, breaking it up, distributing it down both sides of the “V”, so that each subsequent goose in line feels less and less of the air resistance. The geese collectively understand that a) they benefit from the work of the lead goose b) the lead goose gets tired at some point, after bearing the full force of the air resistance. Thus, the geese rotate the position of lead goose. A goose from down the line of the “V”–one that has received benefit of all the geese ahead of it–flies to the front, taking over the lead, and allowing the now-former lead goose to drop back and rest, to fly in the wake of the “V”, where there is less wind resistance.

I was the lead goose on the Journeys from 2013-2019, and I was tired. The three of you flew in and took over. I have been able to rest, to rejuvenate, to follow in your wake using less of my own direct energy, and allowing you to bear the wind, break the force.

And I feel it. And I am so deeply grateful.

This does not mean that I haven’t been working–my “wings” have still been flapping! But being caught in your currents has meant that my energy, my love, my life-force could be utilized in other ways. And I am so deeply grateful.

As for what you/we are contributing to humanity: Everyone is a goose whose consciousness is flying upward, whether they know it or not. Everyone is in someone else’s wake (think of any spiritual leader who has served Love–that person was a lead goose). We are now at a point in humanity’s evolution of consciousness when people are realizing a) that they are part of a collective, which they both contribute to and benefit from b) that they have what it takes to be the lead goose– everyone has a contribution to make.

Much of humanity remains unconscious, flapping along in a current created by others ahead of them, sometimes drifting away, sometimes resisting. But everyone has the potential to become the lead goose, whether they know it now or not.

Every contribution to the upward flight of humanity’s consciousness benefits everyone. For the Journeys that you each lead, you benefited all of humanity: everyone was in your wake. The work was with words, the force was invisible, the effect silent; everyone moved. Feel your power. I do.

This is always true, whether the work you do (or anyone does) is a Journey, or a massage, or a drum circle, or a shaman’s flight, or any other modality that increases awareness, that shares the Love and Oneness within you. When I am lifted, All are lifted. When one finds the Light, Light is opened to All. You lifted me; you opened Light for me. And I am so deeply grateful.

Anyone doing work to uplift humanity is doing the work of the lead goose. More and more people are understanding this, more and more people are becoming lead geese.

Thank you all for being lead geese for me–for all of humanity–over these past several months. I commit to you, and to all, to carry forth Love and Oneness for the benefit of All.

Om Namo Namah.

 

Love Lighthouse –Journey of Creation 02.11.40

Guiding Thought

There are no degrees of Love. Love is Whole, Full, and Perfect. Love in action is Creation; Love’s creations are Whole, Full, and Perfect. When I express Love, I am being creative in its Truest sense. Creativity is Love in action, and produces activities, relationships, and experiences which are Whole, Full, and Perfect.

Reflection / Contemplation

Love is my natural state of Truth.  I previously created a lot of my life and relationships outside of my conscious alignment with my Love nature.

Love, being All there is, is never out of alignment with me. My free will enables my ability to create my relationships from whatever I am focused on and in vibrational frequency with.

The conscious awareness that Love is me, I am Love, attracts people, inspires actions and creates relationships built on the Love and Wholeness, I AM. Moving in my life from this foundation of Wholeness, Love is Created in every breath and in each step. The Power of Love is in us All. The super human opportunity is to yield to that, open wide to that Fullness and Be the Love. We are Creators!

Co-creating with Love! It is available 24/7, no limits or exceptions. We have the ability to adjust the flow we swim in. Doubt and fear contract the flow, trust and believing open it up. Being willing to be the conduit of Love means I am willing to address the small self and its insecurities.

I can lovingly be the Knower to this aspect. “I Love You”, I say to her as many times as needed to ease and end the static of contrast.

There is only Love.

Any ‘other’ is simply an illusion needing to be loved back to clarity. There are no degrees of Love. It is the foundation of All Life, and All of Creation. My Journey has supported revealing the Love that has been beneath the unforgiving aspects that I have claimed as me. It has supported the dismantling of measuring structures I created to qualify for Love, which needs no qualifications.

Being Whole, Full and Perfect, Love Is Me and All others. It is Us. My calling is to Know this, to hold this as the Truth that it Is. I, as Love, will be here, Loving. Without intrusion or a mission to change or enlighten any other. The beacon of my Love Lighthouse is mine to tend. I am of the Light in Creation with Love, in its Truest sense.

Peace Is My Heart –Journey of Creation 02.11.39

Guiding Thought

In the Light of Truth, perceptions and non-reality dissipate as fog in the sun. Only Truth is True. When I am aware of my reality in Truth, I understand how flimsy and meaningless are my perceptions. Only the Oneness of the Knowledge of Truth brings Peace.

Reflection / Contemplation

The Light of Truth has dawned within me like the suns first warming rays. I am the morning, a new day is being born. My fresh reality grows in strength and wisdom. Light illuminates each step of my path. This Light has been fully revealed as Truth. I am from the Origins of Light. The Christ in me is in touch with that Knowledge. The Child In me has proceeded with such devotion to unveil what was kept always an accomplishment ahead. Being willing to Be was all that was required to dissipate the fog.  Peace is my heart beating with the Oneness of existence. Throughout all time, space and dimensions only Truth is True.

Within me shows the Light, I AM.

Within me glows the Light, I AM. Within me Knows the Light,  I AM.

FREEDOM! –Journey of Creation 02.11.38

Guiding Thought

What do I value? How much do I value it? When I clarify these questions, I establish the value of my goal. I then consciously bring this value to all my thoughts and actions, measuring my behavior against the criteria set by my values. The means for accomplishment reveal themselves as I clarify my intentions.

Reflection / Contemplation

My Soul stepped boldly forward and spoke for this question…I value freedom-which viscerally felt amazing yet my mind was like what??

It required me to go inside to get current with my Soul.

Love is my highest value, or that is what I discovered in the first round, and that was easy to understand and feel in alignment with. Over this forty days I have been gifted with much trust and integration. I’m seeing layers below the surface and have been granted access to previously off-limit regions in my own realm. They were off limits because I didn’t have the capacity to honor them.

Bringing freedom, consciously, to all my thoughts and actions is the next evolutionary step in my life walk. Freedom to Love All life requires the dismantling of history. It is a remodeling project of great scope. The history I’m referring to goes as deep as what I have predestined for myself throughout my lifespan, what I have been taught my family and the collective about aging, health, even love.

Freedom means having a capacity to imagine beyond the borders of what Love is, for Self and other.

I was hardwired to a golden rule that said treat others better than yourself. Wow! The clarity of that simple sentence just hit me like a punch in the gut.

Freedom means that I am willing to know and be in alignment with Truth. It means that Love will be revealed in All that I see and interact with because I am opening to freeing myself from the lifetime behavior patterns, actions and thoughts which have had me thinking I’m doing different things yet not living a different experience.

It is so perfectly terrifying to step over the threshold of the known, cutting free, and committing to a life walk of true Freedom in Love. Terrifying because I’ve been taught that the unknown is scary, uncontrollable, and dangerous.

In this moment I declare, “I am free.” The energy moving through me, coursing through me is electrifying! The sun just blasted through my window in exuberant celebration of my declaration! From this moment on I embrace freedom as my highest value. This will be demonstrated by my thoughts and actions as I move through my world, anew.

“Behold! I make all things new!” Was heard ringing out in my Kingdom. I am free! I am free! I am free!

Revealing Light –Journey of Creation 02.11.37

Guiding Thought

I use my free will joyfully to create the good, the beautiful, the Holy, and the Perfect. This is appropriate use of my mind and will, and directly in-line with Perfect Love. As I experience my Holy creations in my life, I strengthen my conviction to Truth, and to my ability to co-create with my Divine Self.

Reflection / Contemplation

My Divine Self is an energy that announces Itself through sensations in my cell tissue. It is like being in a room where you think you have enough light to read until a caring person comes in and turns up the light and you are amazed by the difference! The Light turned up within me when in conscious co-creation reveals to me the magnificent possibilities my self is not aware of. I am Alive in alignment with Perfect Love. When I consciously connect with Perfect Love, I am in Holy Union with Light. Experiencing this strengthens my conviction to my Self and my place on the planet. Appropriate use of my mind and will enable me to create daily in unison with Perfect Love, the Source of my Divinity.

Through Her, with Her, and in Her, I Am.
