Day 3 – February 23, 2021
And so, it continues.
Knowing how to be is not the purpose of life. Knowing how to live and function in this human society is. Knowing when to stop and when to go. Knowing when to eat and when to sleep. These seemingly mundane tasks are the purposes which you have come to this continent to fulfill.
Why then you may ask, are we tasked with the illusion that life is a spiritual quandary? Well, my dear, it is that as well. But so often we forget what the past has wrought us. So often we forget what you actually came here to do.
If the purpose of life was strictly a spiritual endeavor, we would have no reason to incarnate. We would have no reason for the trees or the bees. No, my dear, it is not strictly a spiritual endeavor but a human one as well. With human obstacles and human emotions that you have come here to experience and understand.
We live in a society that is fraught with perceived injustices and discriminations. We created these obstacles as opportunities for enlightenment. We are creatures of creation and manifestation – those are key words in this era, right – manifesting that desired outcome or partner.
But what we so often are forgetful of is that the true and perfect partner or palace is not what we actually desire. We actually desire the hardships and the burdens. What is the purpose of this random human life if not to grow and expand? We cannot grow if we are not faced with challenges or obstacles.
And that leads us to step number 2, accept your position in life and cherish the opportunities it brings you.
Stop talking down to yourself or where you are living or who you are with. You are exactly where you are meant to be. You are exactly with who you are meant to be with.
Yes, we say that knowing that some of you may be in situations full of struggle and strife. There is a reason for this struggle. There is a reason for this strife. We did not place ourselves in these situations without reason. That would be foolish. That would be like the man in the castle with the perfect wife eating chocolates all day and not gaining a stone. No, we are here for that struggle. We are here for that strife.
Live this life you have set out for yourself with unabandoned joy. Each moment. Each opportunity. Each instance of hardship is your way of growing and expanding.
These words you use, “hardship” “turmoil” “strife”, these are just words that you have spoken into existence. They are not truths. Truths come with “opportunity” “expansion” “advancement”; these are the words of the soul here on earth.
You may ask us how we know this? We are not fools. We have been there before too. We have experienced that human life and made it out “alive”. Yes, we grew. Yes, we laughed. Yes, we cried. For these are part of the human condition and the human journey. To experience the life before you.
And now we will bring you to Step 3 – you weren’t expecting that so soon, were you?
Step 3 find your passion and live your life from there.
Passion is another of those key words people fret over. Let them fret. It is our purpose to assist you in this human journey and passion is part of that journey.
Find your passion. Find that passion that is inside your heart. Find that passion which is sung by the birds and the bees, the fruit trees and the fleas. Yes, there is a passion inside you waiting and bubbling to come out. Release it.
We spend so much time in our lives reading and watching instead of living and trying. Those who have passions show it through their eyes. They speak it through their mouths. They live it moment to moment.
What are we talking of here? We are talking of that feeling of unabandoned joy. That feeling of losing yourself in in the moment and in each second so that each moment or second does not matter and does not exist.
Find that space in your life. That space in your heart, where you shine like an apple seed. That space which is at the heart of the matter and shines like a star in the sky. Find that space and let it out. Let it free.
You may ask us, well, how are we supposed to find that? We have been searching for years and it does not exist.
Does it not exist, or do you just not accept what it is? First, figure out where your judgments lay. Perhaps your passion is not up to your standards. Perhaps your passions do not make your physical money and thus cannot be relevant to your existence.
To this we say, “hog wash” and literally “hog wash”. Fun turn of phrase right there.
Do not judge what comes from your heart but accept it with unabandoned joy. Accept your star that lays in the center of yourself and is asking to shine. All that fruit around it will not grow and let you multiply and manifest unless you release these seeds into the world.
But, you say, there is nothing to be passionate about. The world is in chaos and the children need food. To that we say, “so what”. What is the purpose of living if not to live? Live the life you have before you. Experience every moment and every second of the day. And in that day, do not judge that which you love. Do not judge that which is at the heart of who you are and what you stand for. For it is in those quiet moments where time ceases to exist where you really thrive and grow.
Find your passion and live it.
Our human asks us “how do we find our passions?”. To that we say, open your eyes and look around. Your passions are written on your walls. Like the hieroglyphics of the ancient Egyptians, your modern era provides the same keys and structure of those times.
Look to your walls. What color are they? What is hanging on them? Where are they in relation to space and time? Is it a city that you love? Is it a tree? Is it a bumble bee?
Parse out each moment of your day and determine at which point time no longer exists. Does the elevator ride up seven stories seem like freedom or does it feel like a bore? Does time exist while lost in the pages of a novel or while pushing a pram through the park? Does time exist in the night’s sky or in heaven’s milk? Find your time and parse out where it no longer functions. This is your key. This is your clue.
Next, look to the elephants in the zoo. What will they do once they are released from their cages? Will they stampede down the street singing hallelujah, or will they mind themselves in the corner and knit an afghan? When you are released from your cage where do you run? What do you sing? What do you create?
Stop devaluing the system in which you live. Stop devaluing what you do and what you love. You have a passion that is as great as Picasso or Leonardo, but you do not place the value on these moments of your time, so they get washed down the sink like last night’s supper.
Value your time and where it ceases to exist.
We cannot tell each and every one of you what your passions are or where to find them. Instead, you must trust your own heart. You must trust your own mind. And that will lead us to Step number 4.
Step 4, trust what is inside you to led you where you are meant to go.
We often look outside of ourselves for directions. We look to maps. We look to advisors. We look to the policeman on the street to direct the traffic of our lives. But it is really us, we are the conductors of our lives and we need to act like it.
Stop giving away your power of control to those around you. Start orchestrating your life the way it is meant to be lived, the way it is meant to be felt.
And the truth is, there is one way to do this. Trust that inner compass. Trust that inner advisor to show you the way.
But remember, do not judge the way. Do not tell that inner advisor that the stream should go south instead of north. Trust that the journey is the one you are meant to take. Trust that the obstacles you face are the ones that will help you to grow and make you stronger.
You say that your inner compass leads you to the “wrong man” or the “broken pipes”. Well, yes, what did you expect? Did you expect that inner advisor to lead you to the perfect life in the perfect castle with the wife and the chocolates? Why would it do that? What is the purpose of that?
Instead, trust yourself to lead yourself to the obstacles and the strife that is necessary for you. Do not judge those obstacles or strife, instead accept them in all their glory and with the fanfare of the ages. Accept what you place in your path with love and gratitude. For these are the moments of true expansion and growth. These are the moments in which you learn to live.
Trust that inner voice. Trust that inner journey. Stop asking for directions and look inside yourself to tell you where you are meant to go. Your journey is just that, your journey. How are you to succeed on this journey using your brother’s map? Put that away and pull out your own. Follow your own guidance, whether you deem it bad or incomplete it is the way you are meant to go.
Trust yourself and the rest will follow.
And with that, we leave you for today.
Blessed be and Hallelujah.
