Respect versus Submission

I’ve heard many people say “never forget where you came from” or some variation of this warning to always honor your parents and respect your heritage.  But what if you were born out of place or even in the wrong time?  How do you respect your parents when all you were taught growing up is in opposition to your natural, authentic nature?  Many people who don’t understand the difference between respect and submission, end up confused, frustrated and angry.

The thesaurus says that respect is similar to veneration, affection, appreciation and recognition. It says that honor is similar to respect, veneration, recognition and honesty.  But, it says submission is similar to surrender, obedience and subservience. 

At some point in the process of becoming a mature adult and finding your way in this world, you must decide what is true and right for you. Just because mom never went to college or dad works in a factory doesn’t mean you must do the same. Just because all of your grandparents and half your aunts and uncles are school teachers, doesn’t mean you have to be one too.

But, just because no one ever in the history of your known family has never done something doesn’t mean that you can’t do it either. So what if every woman in your family is a school teacher, goes to the Methodist church, bakes cookies on Saturday afternoon and lives in the same city, in the same state, even the same neighborhood as multiple generations before her? If you truly feel in your heart that you’re meant to travel the world, save endangered species and never call anywhere home for more than a few years, then this is your true nature coming through. Your longings, desires, and joy are God expressing himself/herself/themselves through you.  If you ignore these longings and desires you may end up living a dull gray existence and miss real life altogether.

You can appreciate everything your parents, grandparents, and other relatives taught you and still be your own person. If someone is disappointed in you or angry at you for being your own person, that is their problem, that is an unresolved issue in them and has nothing to do with you.  You can live a full, exciting life and still be grateful for your parents and what they taught you, whether it was good or bad, or whether it resonated with you or not; it taught you something. Quite possibly, it taught you what you do not want to do and who you do not want to be.

Do I believe we have soul contracts? Yes, I do. I belief we all agree to certain things before we incarnate in this life. And I reiterate, longings, desires, ambitions, joys, and peaceful expression are the Great Creator expressing and living through us.

What Do You Really Want

As I read and/or listen to news reports, as I shop, drive, and just scan the internet and regular television programs, I have to stop and ask myself, what are people really trying to accomplish?  More than 50% of television shows are so called ‘reality’ shows. If this is really anyone’s reality, I’ll go back to riding my unicorn while talking to trees and sweeping stardust. News shows rarely if ever broadcast any ‘good’ news. 99.9% of what they report is child abuse, murder, rape, theft, and general gloom and doom. Even the weather is relayed in a depressing manner. OMG it might snow/rain/ or if you live in a drought area, heaven forbid, the sun is going to shine another day.

So, as I was meditating this morning, I had to ask the Spirits what is really going on and what is the purpose of life? After the usual balance between light and dark, positive and negative, and the one I always have to bear – just spread the word and don’t worry about who accepts it or how they interpret it, I came up with this . . .

We all want a nice home, transportation, clothes and food. But if we have these and we’re still not happy, if we are able to make ends meet and are surviving, why are so many so willing to lie, cheat, steal, even murder to have more? Why are governments more worried about what is happening in other countries than in taking care of those in their own countries? Why are most people never satisfied with their accomplishments and triumphs?

Before I moved here 5 years ago, William asked me where I wanted to be in 3 years. My response was “to be a spiritual counselor and energy healer.”  Well, I’ve learned 2 very important things, first, I already was a spiritual counselor/energy healer and I still am, both and so much more. Second,  not I nor any other spiritual leader or healer can help and/or heal anyone who doesn’t want to be helped and/or healed. All we can do is stay open and ready for those who needs us.

But my greatest sadness is that so many are either partially or completely ignoring any and all things spiritual for the sake of the next promotion, raise, house, car, or dollar in their pocket. Guess what, none of those things are going with you when you cross over, the spirit world provides for your basic needs and in the spirit world those needs are completely different.

So, do you want to spend your entire earthly existence worrying about material possessions while the earth and all life forms including people are being made to suffer and even destroyed because of humans’ selfish desires? Or do you want to learn respect, consideration and love for what you have been offered and be able to take those things with you when you cross over?

Authenticity

A big word with an even bigger meaning. Authentic is more than real. It is the deeper truth under the surface reality. Are you authentic? Even with yourself, do you really understand and know yourself on the deepest levels? Would you share your authentic self with anyone? Just some thoughts for your weekend.

Do You Know What You Believe

I keep seeing pretty pictures with the words: Ask, Believe, Receive.

Okay, but, shouldn’t it be: Ask, Receive, Accept.  ? 

If you don’t know what you believe, how do you know what you’re really asking for? Your mouth says one thing, you may even think with your mind what you say with your mouth. True beliefs live in your spirit. When you ask, always be sure you know your spirit and truly believe what you’re asking – then all you need do is receive and accept.

New

Hello – I know it’s been some time since I posted, but I’ve been busy and life has taught me a few things lately.

But here I am and before the post today, I must tell you that you will notice a difference in me and my writing, I’m much more truthful and determined. So, you have been warned. 🙂

Today’s message is this, most humans are completely off track. Their agendas are based on wrong thinking and selfish interests. My father always said to decide if something is truly important, determine if the matter will have an impact or make any difference 100 years from now. So, lets break this down. Will the styles worn by the Kardashians make any difference in 100 years? I doubt it. Will anyone care or even remember Justin Beiber’s shenanigans 100 years from now? Probably not. Will Honey Boo Boo, Lizard Lick Towing or Hard Core Pawn even be remembered in 100 years? If they are, I’ll be glad I’m already gone, because that’s a world I don’t want to live in.  

But, will it matter if wolves, polar bears, and orcas are extinct? Yes, it will because the entire Eco-system will be off balance. Will it matter if the rainforests have been destroyed? Yes, because our planet was designed by the Creator as a giant terrarium, and if the rainforests are destroyed there will not be necessary moisture to sustain healthy weather patterns nor will there be adequate oxygen for healthy air to breathe. This means most of the streams, lakes and rivers will be drying up and humans and animals will be dying off because of contaminated air. Will it matter that fossil fuel companies used dangerous chemicals to mine and clean the fossil fuels? Yes, because the only place to dump those hazardous chemicals is into to the water, or the ground and the chemicals will still leach into the water supply.

Yet, people continue to idolize the Kardashians, Justin Biebers, and big industries of the world while the food chain, water and air supply are being destroyed. 

Will it matter 100 years from now that people felt this way?

Yes.
