Beautiful thread ExploitedAliens and of what I would have said has been said already. But here’s a few thoughts which I try and live my life
*Live by 'The Golden Rule' - basically love your neighbour as you love yourself. We are all one, what you do to another you do to yourself. But for
this very reason don't be afraid to occasionally take care of 'Number One' first. In order to fully love others you must also love yourself.
is a very beautiful thread which may help throw some perspective on these
*If you find yourself fretting over something just think 'will I care about this in a year?' If the answer is 'no' then why are you caring about it
now? This is great advice on many different levels. When you're an old man/woman how to you want to have lived your life. If you are not living that
life right now then start making steps towards it. A year from now you will have wished you'd started today.
*You get what you expect, including what you fear. Therefore fear nothing for ultimately it is all 'you' anyway. And expect the best. Don't
for it, know it. But at the same time concern yourself too much about the outcome for this throws in the element of 'want', and when you
want something you are telling the universe (your higher self) you don't have it, and the universe will respond accordingly. It is a tricky frame of
mind to hold but when you realise you are in complete control of your own destiny yet as a spiritual being everything you require is already within
you it will begin to come quite naturally.
*Be here now. The past has already happened, the future will never come. All you will ever have is the 'now'. Know this, understand this, and take
some time to go smell the roses
*Understand that everything is meant to be exactly as it is right at this very moment. Time and Space are merely illusions to make you believe that
everything that has, is or will ever happened hasn't already happened. They are processes of the Source in order to facilitate its experience of being
itself. But everything has
already happened and you are merely one of many awareness's of the one great consciousness upon an illusory
timeline. You are in fact God, experiencing himself as being you.
*Finally don't try too
hard to be spiritual. The very fact you want to be is enough and what is meant to come to you in this lifetime will come
to you. I'm guessing there's no ascended masters currently posting in this thread which means each of us still have many many lifetimes left to live.
Spirituality is an inevitable process and will come to all of us exactly when it is meant to.
"Lusting for spirituality can be one of the most insidious forms lust can take on. It is a craving for the benefits, trappings, mannerisms, speech
patterns, etc. It is making a goal of spirituality rather than seeking the process of moving toward it from wherever you are. A reasonable formula for
spiritual gain is simply accepting yourself exactly where you are in the moment, then exercising your right as a spirit to bring about an upward shift
in both energy and consciousness, and enjoying the beautiful colours, the illumination and the enlightenment which results naturally from the
