Meditation for this 2002-12-30
"Learn to work with love, learn to make it gush forth within you, learn to project it onto all the creatures and objects around you and beyond, on the trees, the mountains, the oceans ... You will then become a beneficial presence for the entire world. Through thought, through speech, always try to add an element that is likely to bring improvement. Even if you are by yourself, remember to utter words of peace, of hope and of joy for all human beings on earth, knowing that they will produce results. Since we can only give to others what we possess ourselves, endeavor first to establish harmony and light within you, and then, once you feel you have succeeded in making this harmony and light real within you, project them into space. This is what working with divine love is all about."

Greetings Divine Ones! I pray that as we all take another step forward on our Path of Light that we will be fully aware of the unlimited potential that resides in us. May we continually evolve into Radiant Beings of Light and Love with out reached hands to assist as many as we can as we travel through life. No matter how bleak the times may seem we must remember that we are the Light of the World.Shine On My Sisters & Brothers. Shine On Into Eternity!

Each and every one of us are searching for the exact same thing, Love! Ultimately, that is all that is, everything else is an illusion. I have asked myself a number of times; Why are we searching so desperately for Love? We are searching for Love in such a desperate way, because on the deepest level of consciousness we know that we are Love. Not because of the Love we received from our mother, father and others, but because we are one with The DIVINE and that gives us the Love that we receive from our personal relationship with The DIVINE. We are created from Pure Love, so that makes us beings of Pure Love. However there is a problem, we have allowed the circumstances of this world to condition us in such a way that we think in an unrealistic and foreign ways when it comes down to our relationship with our true Higher Self, which is a part of the same Love. When we are separated from our true reality, we are separated from our Higher Self. Our Higher Self is our Spiritual Consciousness, it differentiates us from animals and other forms of creation. There is only one thing that is more dangerous than being separated from our Higher Self, and that is being separated from The DIVINE. I must give honor to animals and every other form of creation at this time. Being different from animals in the way that we are does not make us better than animals. The DIVINE created animals from the same energy of Love that we were created from. That makes them Sacred and Precious to The DIVINE in the same way that we are Sacred and Precious to The DIVINE.The only way to live a truly fruitful and never ending abundant life, is to be aware of, and fully conscious of, this Divine reality and state of being called Love. Everything is based on the foundation of Love. We must Spiritually return home and rest in Divine Love. I must recapitulate that The DIVINE "Is" LOVE, and we are one with The DIVINE. That means that you and I are also Love. In order to maintain our true state of being we must give and receive Love freely and openly at all times. Our Spirit feeds off of Love in the same way that our physical body feeds off of physical nutrition. As long as we are in this physical form we will be in search of ways to give and receive more Love.Our search for ways to express True Love will not always bring us pleasant results. However, we must not let those experiences distort our search for more ways to express True Love. We must do all that we possibly can do to continually move in and through the unselfish and Divine Energy that we call Love. When we do that, we are in the midst of The DIVINE in our consciousness, that is the place where all things are possible. Sometimes we have to do things that we would rather not do to achieve the kind of results that we need and should get. In no way does that mean that we should do anything that is designed to hurt a sister, or brother, or any other part of creation. Pain may result from something that must be done to bring fourth Pure Love into our life. However, pain does not have to be a part of the equation. If pain is a part of our equation, we have chosen to receive it and except it.Most of us see a relationship such as a marriage as being a lifelong thing, and most of the time that is the intent of both parties. But in reality that is not always the end result. I do not believe that every marriage is meant to last forever. I believe that we are to enter into a marriage relationship and every other kind of relationship whole heartedly. We are to give our all, give ourselves totally and honestly to the relationship day-by-day, as if that day is the last day we have here on the physical plain. That is the only way a relationship can work as it should. A relationship should stay together as long as there is growth in that relationship. When a couple starts to see that growth is no longer a part of their relationship, they had better do all that they possibly can do to reignite their motivation in that relationship. A way must be found to start to grow once again individually and collectively as a couple. If their efforts show that they are growing in different directions and further progress of the two becoming one is no longer fruitful, they need to agree that the best thing for both parties is to part in an amicable way. Most of the time when a relationship comes to the end of it's road, both people know it is time to dissolve it in its present state. However because of pride, jealousy and fear of what others will think and say, one or both parties continue to hold on to the relationship causing prolonged pain. This stunts the Spiritual growth of both people and sets up a possible scenario for hatred between the two of them.One of our big problems in life is knowing when we should let go of something. There is an old saying that goes something like this. Release that which you Love, if it is meant for you, it will return to you. We must understand one very important thing; "We Do Not Own The One We Love!" Some men and women take the marriage license as a form of ownership over the other person. Once they get that signed piece of paper they set out on a mission to control the other person. No matter what, we can not go against another persons free will. Free will is a Divine Law. I feel deep down in my Spirit that marriage is the way that it is today because man became untrustworthy. It had gotten to the point where a man's word meant nothing at all. So something had to be created to hold man to his word and commitment to others. That is why someone created the form of marriage that we are practicing today. Marriage in it's original state had nothing to do with a man or woman (minister) standing in front of a couple and reciting vows and the signing of a marriage license. Marriage between two people take place before The DIVINE and in the hearts of both individuals. Marriage is an institution designed to bring two individuals together to assist each other in their Spiritual growth and to also assist each other along the Spiritual Path of Light.We have to learn how to Love Unconditionally. We need to learn how to give freely and unselfishly. We need to learn how to receive openly. And we also need to learn how to release completely when the situation at hand dictates letting go. When we learn how to do these things our life will take on a new meaning and purpose. However, we must bear in mind that all of this takes time. I am still learning how to be consistent and how to be balance in every area I have mentioned here today. Being open and being balanced is the key to success in everything that we do.This brings me back to my number one soap box issue, which is Prayer and Meditation. We must commit ourselves to daily prayer and meditation in order to stay connected to Divine Direction and Divine Insight. If we approach every situation through the energy of prayer and meditation we will be able to function through the Spirit of Truth and Love. That does not mean that we will be free from making mistakes. As long as we are in physical form we will make mistakes every now and then. But when we become aware of a mistake we will be quick to find the best way to correct that mistake and move on. We will no longer seek to find someone or something to blame our mistakes on. We will take full responsibility for everything we do and everything we bring into our life. That is one of the many ways that we can and will Love ourselves.

- Hi Polly:With all you have to do, keeping this website going or don't you have another one as well, I am so pleased that you took the time to respond to me so quickly. I do appreciate that.Except for my cold returning to kick me in the face, I am doing okay. But because it is supposed to be bad weather here this weekend, which is really strange since it was about 60 degrees on New Year's Eve and we are expecting flurries with none sticking to the ground tomorrow. I really think that is why I just cannot shake this cold that has been coming and going for over a month now--the extreme changes in temperature, the extreme cold weather, my getting out in it, and my lowered resistance to infections due to being under so much stress for so long. That is why I decided that if it rains or snows all weekend that I am just going to stay inside and try to get as well as I can. I had my son with me for over a week Christmas week, and two of my three daughters and one of my eight grandchildren spent the weekend with me, so I have had enough excitement for a while. If I have to stay in this weekend, that is fine because it may be just what I need to heal myself completely.While I believe that colds go away with time, I would like to ask you to send up some prayers for me that I will get over this mess, whatever it is. My doctor will not give me any medicine because I do not have a fever and am not having vomiting or diarrhea, but this living with it after this is really getting old. So I think that I might just need some help from a higher power. While I know that I can do it myself, I have not yet learned the proper technique of asking my angels for help and receiving an answer as I have never been able to hear any beings clearly, not yet, so would you please add me to your prayers in hopes that I will soon get over whatever is wrong and be back to my normal self?Another thing is that I am one of those people who believes that the more prayers that go out into the universe for a person, the better because each prayer sends energy out into the universe, so the more prayers for the same thing, the better. So if you would add me to your prayers, I would be so very grateful.I must go now as I have a lot more e-mails to read. I have not been able to catch up all week since my e-mail went out on me over the weekend, so rather than get upset about it, I just do the best I can each day and then go back the next day and do the same thing. One of these days, I will get caught up, but for now, while I am still feeling so bad, I am just going to do what I feel like doing and let the rest go.I hope you have a peaceful, sleep-filled evening and that tomorrow with be a great day for you.May your life always be touched by love and may you always feel the presence of your guardian angel walking closely beside you, guiding your every step.Peace, love and light,Patti
