do the best you can

...with what you have.

better will come : this is the promise.

it's also the rule, according to divinity. the part that is ours to do is to shift the objective.

what is our best? are we (actively) doing it?

also, the 'what you have' part needs focus (intention). dreaming is the space occupied by our future selves : living is the space now occupied. if all are not living their own best, none are. possibility : dream it : live it...

no. matter. what.

whatever we have imagined is what we have created in mind, and (by divine law) have created in our world. it is with this law in mind that we are able to design (and redesign at will) the whole world. mind is connection to source, and is the place existence goes for direction. heart is connection to mind and is the place we go for guidance. body carries out the work. by design, we are the producers, directors and actors in the end result, our lives.

it is ours alone to decide to recreate the focus, or not. we may, by our decree to do so, create the focus of our own existence into whatever we desire. should we grant ourselves the courage, we may bring to our selves (and to all others) love. possibility : peace : goodwill : caring : sharing : being : as one of the denizens of our mother earth. 

let us look upon one another as fellow denizens, and create ourselves tolerant, kind, and even understanding. 

yes. we are that powerful.

: should we create (allow) ourselves that powerful.

the thing we learn when we go looking for a way out of the mess (we've created) is that the way forward involves helping each other. we must look back to understand and heal division, and thus we may create the ability to learn the lessons and decrees (which we are usually loathe to do), and then (forward) think and live into a better way. it is necessary that the way forward is for the good of the all, as the only way any of us experiences 'good' is for all of us to. we are designed by the creator to help each other as well as ourselves : this is our mission here. the thing that creates this possible is to first see the possibility in mind... the shift involves looking forward to who we desire to be, and then create ourselves worthy and capable, which is to say able. we may create ourselves worthy and able if we will think ourselves worthy, abundant and happy ... which we may do if we are willing to give up fear (and its entourage). we are so afraid of ourselves, each other, our planet, and our soul's place in the cosmos that we limit living, favoring (creating) instead, a culture of surviving. we end up eating ourselves alive, horrified at who we have become, and (because we think ourselves so) powerless to do anything different.

if we don't write our own stories they have no choice but to write themselves (be written for us), without individual (our own) input. we have forgotten that there are only 7-8 billion of us : there is a whole universe out there, and it really is on our side : all we have to do is be aware of this simple awareness and apply it to all of us. whatever we choose to program (by only our thoughts and actions) into the universe : eternal source happily and without prejudice gives back, in kind. this is our special, one of a kind gift, directly from divinity. it is only ours, and as long as we breathe, we have no choice but that we participate : with the outcomes being what we say they are. our choice is to choose (dream, create, live) the outcome : or not.

when we intentionally look toward love (our gifts), we create our own ideas, and thus delve to create our own way. conversely, when we take action only on the ideas that others (employers, partners, children, parents, contemporaries, clergy, governments, etc.) have for our contributions (and our time), we begin to sense that we 'should be happy,' but feel as though we are aging in place, unable to conjure forward momentum, and ultimately either settle (have our story written for us) or cut and run (write our own), intentionally.

i'm looking forward to it!

i'm looking forward to it...

is a statement we make all the time ... usually one we use in a way that is hopeful, or that holds a seemingly impossible connotation - or the possibility of a nice weekend. the question that seems to beg in this moment is, what energy is actually getting created with the statement?

remember, we are always creating (whether or not we are aware of it) : our thoughts are the most powerful force in creation. all that is, is first a thought. conscious thought (awareness), then, is the golden key to unlocking the secrets of conscious creation. to say we are looking forward to one thing or another issues the thought into the massive, boundless creative consciousness of the universe. back of the thought is : i am creating in my mind the thing upon which i cast my vision; thus 'looking forward,' in combination with 'i am,' is a powerful way toward manifesting personal vision. yes, it's that powerful.

forward looking statements create the space inside for committing (manifesting) in our very own now. by envisioning those things we look forward to, we are putting ourselves and the universe on notice that we have (consciously) begun the interior work of tuning in to a new version of 'now' for ourselves, our lives, and our world. to follow 'looking forward' with inspired action brings 'i am looking forward' into 'i am now' by the power of objective desire : which is the force by which the universal intelligence creates : by seeing the result and working backward to get there...

although it may seem like a small thing, when we make a statement (any statement) that begins with 'i am,' we are actually issuing a decree into the heavens of our own self-dom. ('i'm' counts too!) to say 'i am strong' creates in our brain (and in the universal intelligence, and in our own mind-body) the very power of creation itself that may overcome any perceived or real weakness we have experienced . to learn to call upon the healing of the divine intelligence, with the conviction of a healed person, brings healing. to call upon the universal abundance with the feeling of being abundant brings abundant living. to say or to call upon lack or anguish or sorrow or hatred or violence, in kind, brings those things as well.

abundance : i'm looking forward to it!
world peace : i'm looking forward to it!
unconditional love : i'm looking forward to it!
stress-less : i'm looking forward to it!
healing the earth : i'm looking forward to it!
manifesting desires : i'm looking forward to it!
great relationships : i'm looking forward to it!
extraordinary life : i'm looking forward to it!
fulfilling my purpose : i'm looking forward to it!
my best self, living my best life : i'm looking forward to it!
freedom : i'm looking forward to it!

this is a primer list for me, but all of the above exemplify the desire/vision i give to the direction of my own dreams ... and the life i have chosen to live here. very, very importantly, to state that i am 'looking forward' opens my mind and creates a space in me to envision my dreams, while living my very own best now (which is actually all any of us ever has). looking forward shows me what (the result of) my dream looks like, so that i may consciously create intention into it. 

knowing what i am looking forward to gives me courage to consciously create my experience of now within joy and satisfaction : living into my own best within each statement (dream); and looking forward to each attribute creates space within me to see them materialized ... and also ability for even more of these miraculous thoughts, and therefore, things! 

you may ask if i have achieved the above list, to which i answer : i am(!) closer (and more certain) with every single thought i consciously (choose to) think into it. i have done the work of dreaming my own best, and taking inspired action around surrender. i set intention, and therefore create a space inside for 'this or something better;' and live in the knowing of attracting my desired outcome ... and then persevere. having actively released my dream (and my fear) into the universal consciousness for fulfillment (and absolution) means there is only now being myself in each moment/now, within each 'i am' statement : consciously, actively, intentionally being who i say i am. i know(!) i am, and i am grateful. for me, there is no better way to spend my time than consciously creating my life as i will (desire) it to be! ...with the possible exception of sharing a view of possibility with you.

what i find in this exercise is that each of the 'i am' statements is absolutely self-fulfilling, and brings 'looking forward' into the realm of 'now' by creating my vision so : moment by moment.  

it (really) all began for me with stumbling into conscious gratitude : i find myself frequently in gratitude for gratitude. it's a concept that can sometimes get lost in the myriad of challenges we face as a population ... it's also the beginning of creation of so many attributes within becoming who we say we are in life. gratitude opens in us the ability to see ourselves prosperous, happy, joyful, abundant, and mindful; no matter the set of circumstances we are facing. gratitude inherently has the power to transform/transmute negativity. to actively search for (and also find) beauty inside and outside ourselves creates possibility by allowing us to be (feel) uplifted, which is the language of the angels. 

your list can be whatever you choose! the most important part of each forward looking statement is the intention behind it. let's look a bit closer at expression itself. the way we are taught by the sages through the ages to bring about life as we would have it be, is that we dream it (plant the seed, create it - first in mind, become very clear about what we want, thoughts become things, etc.), and then look inside ourselves and discover potential (possibility) and pathway (gifts) toward our own determination (passion) of our own best outcome (forward thinking list) (dream). 

we may not, and probably won't, know all the in's and out's of getting 'there;' however, the first thing we must do is create a space inside ourselves (where heaven goes for its instructions on how to show up for us) for possibility, by creating the vision : and then (the hard part) leave the details to the universal intelligence. this in no way means that we sit back and wait for our good to drop into our lives (although that is a possibility), rather to begin to 'hear' the universe speaking to us by the messages sent to us, in a whole host of forms. as we 'hear' guidance, we then learn to take inspired action toward our own good, and for the good of the all. 

we learn to discern opportunity and see ourselves moving forward within our own best vision and version. of course, life itself does happen, and at every single moment the nuance of change is happening around us. it is ours to create ourselves better within it, and to (choose to) find the golden nuggets of inspiration, beauty, gratitude and love inherent in each and every nuance. 

so, to say 'i am looking forward to it' actually makes a statement that we are looking into a future we are (actually) creating(!) ... by beginning with the end in mind, starting from right where we are, right now. should we begin (choose) to consciously create, there is an unlimited and wholly available pool of infinite source we may draw on. we simply may not want too much (!) (think world peace, or planetary environmental stewardship) (really!)! 

while there is so much enlightenment and peace and joy to be found within the ability we give ourselves for forward (which is actually a form of 'now'), it may not always show up as pleasant or happy or peaceful (although it may), but if we will consciously create ourselves open, accepting and grateful, there will always present a way forward (into the now of our choosing), thus creating momentum for greatness in perception of our individual walk-through here; and for satisfaction and experiences we ourselves create.

so, feel free to look forward to it, and consciously create your very own way into it, through consciously creating your very own vision of your  best self, living in your own best version of now ... dream, because you can ... and i can too. what beauty we may co-create!

the gift

gifts! who doesn't love them? when we are gifted we feel important, loved, and cared for and about. what's not to love about the possibility of treasure within the package of a lovingly given gift! although it seems as though not all of us understand exactly how we are supposed to accept (receive or develop) gifts, we are (nonetheless) constantly bequeathed (from first breath of life), and therefore honored ... if we choose to be.

we sometimes ask about the reason we have come here ... and the answer, actually, is that we agreed to! the soul of creation (from which our own bodies, minds are individually sparked) only desires its own next (evolved awareness), and our world has proven a remarkable laboratory for the physics of change.

the cosmos is ever evolving and expanding, and only asks (requires) us to as well. our bodies are vessels, and carry out the inexhaustible, insatiable requirement divine spirit has for awareness. we are given opportunity at every moment throughout our lives to create. the closer we allow ourselves the courage of who we are, divine love, the more confident we are in our place here, an individual expression of the cosmic energy of change. we (may) know(!), for example, that life is to be created, lived, enjoyed and connected, and that love is our common denominator. it is ours to choose to create, live, enjoy and connect, and to love.

belief and knowing are two different things : what we believe is a product of what has been taught to us, in one form or another : for example : religion, in all its forms. belief (actually) may have its provenance within, or become a product of knowing. knowing is that which is (inherently) known : the source creator's presence within one's heart of hearts : the seat of the collective soul : the seat of one's own spark of soul : the still small voice inside : the ability (willingness) to know our own best answers : and the (respect, acceptance and) honor we may in turn give to our indelible gifts, through giving and sharing with the world. the difference in belief and knowing is simply finding the attributes of the divine in us, regardless of what we have been taught. the attributes of good in us were given names in our education, but we knew them, as earth knows rain. beliefs will change throughout our time here, (which is a natural order), based on the changing world we live in : knowing is divine, and therefore, immutable. knowing is the acceptance of guidance, the march toward the light of love which exists inside us, which is the divine spark of life in each of us : the first and greatest gift of all ... love ... divinely gifted into all beings with first breath of life (opportunity) : a co-creator within it all : mother earth's indelible gift to our lives here.

when we are first born (hopefully we are fortunate enough to be not afraid), we are individually given a whole cadre of gifts; starting with breath of life. we are connected to source in a wholly dependent way. we have absolutely no conception of responsibility, or of fault, or of blame. we are pure because the world has not yet had its way with us, and therefore we are free to choose how our senses perceive all there is. opportunity is as perennial as the coming of flowers in spring, and we only know ourselves as sensory beings. the hope of our care, growth and change is given within each suckle of our mother's milk and of our father's loving touch; themselves gifts to us, as they may be allowed.

as is the way of it, we change and become more of who we are in the world with each passing day, imperceptibly growing, learning and accepting ... should we happen upon learning appreciation for all that is, we may expand appreciation. ...and as is well understood, what we bless, expands. the dichotomy, of course, is that whatever it is that we think about expands : blessings or curses. this is (again, also) ours to choose ...

as is (also) the way of it, life shows up : as it does. it is up to each one of us to allow it to be remarkable. no matter who we may be born, we are all gifted ability (knowing) for beauty, love, peace, kindness, compassion, and equanimity, along with first breath. as is the way of belief, we grow and learn where we have been dropped into the soup of humanity, and are (usually) taught to believe that life is hard : this is the accepted way among us, but not the way it must be, if we wish, if we will. life is hard because we have so chosen (believed) the path hard (or because our education of the way we are with each other has given 'hard' as the only lesson), also, the way of the world as we have believed (created) it is such that survival sometimes depends on making choices for our lives that may (do) not lead to ability within living well. we get caught up in 'surviving' as opposed to 'living,' and must become concerned (focused) on whether we are able to eat (or feed ourselves and our families). life spins out of balance. 'struggle' : whether we may shelter ourselves and those in our care from life's fury only adds to angst when held up against others; or our children are starving. it becomes then a stretch (or a seeming impossibility) to find (believe) good in the world. the way forward is certainly ours to create (transform) also. thinking peace, goodwill, brotherhood and love has the power to create more of the same, but in order to create these things, we must be willing to think on the good in us (in order to attract those things into our way forward); and be (our own gift of ability for) good in ourselves.

the 'gift' we are come here to accept 
is the gift of discovering our gifts : 

and our way forward within the gifting (forwarding) of our gifts, for the good of the all, including ourselves.

being 'good' in the self has nothing to do with status or with wealth. good in the self is a (nother) indelible gift : ours to share, to celebrate, to be : or not. 

and so as we release fear and delve to relearn our part here, we may recreate our lives 'good' (first in mind). there (may) become moments of caring, and thus access to yet another gift of the divine intelligence that creates us good; we have it in us (by divine decree) to create ourselves kind, loving, creative beings, offering to all other beings (each a spark of the same gift) within the sphere of our home (as we know it, as we don't know it), ability to create good within themselves, within ourselves, and within our world.

this (release of fear) good we may choose is an acknowledgement, a sweetening of our angst, and further, commitment within us for reciprocity; each of us sharing our inspired gifts, each of us giving in order to share ... each receiving the blessing of each other's gifts. this is the way it is done above, so may it be below. the gods enjoy each other : and divine light is born ... the light of good within us also.
think good : do good : be good.
namaste(!) to all the relationships i'm trying to have in my time here : and wow, you do learn here about forgiveness : and as they grow and change and become more of their own way, may i also grow with them - and become more of who i am in the world ... and co-create within them a way forward that is from the heart of good; and therefore, find the good (gifts) (love) in me also.

blessed be the gifts : may i honor and fulfill their own chosen way in the world, for the benefit of creating my own best self, living my best life ; creating the dream i dared ; doing my sacred work : ability within purpose : action within ability : contribution for the good of the all ! ...lofty but doable... and well, why not?

i am that, i am.

i am also grateful : so, thank you. i accept with a lovely anticipation : to know that i am capable, and i am loved, because i love : and in so doing, honor the gift of life in me.

good begets good

for heaven's sake, be good! 

break it down : for heaven's sake, be good! in order to bring heaven into the world we live in, bring good into the world we live in ... the good in us is divinity in us ... as we read, study, and hear over and over and over in all spiritual teachings and texts throughout the ages; throughout the history of mankind. the light of spirit in us implores us to be good : to and for each other. to be kind, caring, compassionate, loving and forgiving of each other, and to ourselves.

the truth is: we get what we give. this is a universal law, and it works exactly as it says it does. bringing good into the world is shining the light of good in the world, and it is ours to do. it's actually a great way to envision the way of things; and to wake up every day in the world. 

it is absolutely positivity, but also so much more ... in the grand scheme of things, looking toward the good in every single situation and obstacle has the potential (if we allow) of dissolving the angst (fear) around it, and therefore allowing for opportunity to explore (think into it) a good outcome.

the opposite of good is fear.

think about it. we face life : we may see opportunity, or we may see tragedy (depending upon our very own perspective) : every time, in every piece of information we process, in every decision we make, and in every action we take. the belief we give to how our lives are affected really all boils down to choice. ours is to choose to have a great day (even within current circumstance), or to create our outlook miserable. existence becomes more about who becomes a victim : lash or be lashed. it seems that most of us rock along with catcher's mitts on both hands : doing what we must do to get through another day. life slowly becomes callous and hard, and we begin to think (create) the expectation of crisis as natural order.

we see atrocities being perpetrated upon each other, (including - surprise - the ways we entertain ourselves) and feel helpless to correct the harm being done in the world (it never seems to end well in real life). in reply, we arm and steel and tell ourselves that our only recourse is war, in all the forms there are. we choose our weapons and are inundated with who is wrong, who is being wronged, and how we will keep ourselves and our families safe. we have greatly expanded our perception of enemy, and this has become the way among us. 

there simply must be a better way.

what if we consciously, confidently decided that each and every moment of each and every hour of each and every day was going to be met with a commitment we make to ourselves (and to each other) to do and to be good? that we will send good into the world, and that we are aware of the good being returned to us. bad news is bad news, but, it is always our choice to reinvent : to create, and to find counter-balance within good news also. don't worry : the storms pass - they always do.

what if we genuinely, with awareness, with intent, give ourselves the gift of a good perspective? ... and did our own little bit of good : wherever and whenever we are given opportunity to do so...

in the quest for justice we have believed we must fight : and so the battle lines were drawn. what if we reinvent the fight and create the call for compassion. there is so much angst among our race, and it is a very easy thing to get swallowed up by it all : but there is also, in every moment, the option of using our (very) big brains to create (think) a good outcome if we will. when we find ourselves faced with obstacles, challenges and everyday woes, we (also) have the option of looking at them in a way that will create hope within us for the best possible outcome - no matter what.

there is great comfort in the old adage : if god brings you to it, god will bring you through it ... regardless of your particular choice of word for the creative energy that is the creator, or source. if we choose, we may bring about healing : for ourselves, and for our world; but we must choose. 

this is not (necessarily) about fooling ourselves. this is about bettering our world, one person's viewpoint at a time. there are millions of examples, but to bring perspective is a wholly personal choice ... no matter what.

acknowledgement is a master tool in the arsenal : to look upon the world with our heads hung and reinforce our angst to everyone we communicate with brings more and more angst, and therefore, more and more fear. we believe what we tell ourselves : to see the world in a way that allows ourselves and all others to see beauty will serve a number of purposes : it magically, automatically has the indelible power to transform any situation or occurrence to make us (ourselves) feel better, and when we feel better, we are able to see our way forward : how we talk with ourselves and with others tells our truth about how we see the world, and our perception of how it is all showing up. the very good news is that we ourselves are the master craftsmen of our view.

we are powerful : never let anyone tell you differently. we are at any moment able to change our minds, our hearts and our way of being in the world, with only a thought to do so. should we think the thoughts of good, set our intention to notice and forward good, and always be present to the good we are (constantly) given opportunity to share, we may, one smile at a time, change the world. 

should we stand up to our fears and awaken every day and say (claim) :

'i live, share, and partake in an abundant, loving universe!' 

'i am able to express goodwill to each and every being i meet!' 

'i am a blessed, grateful soul!'

'i see and celebrate beauty all around me!'

'children are beautiful and important!'

'i am the change i wish to see in the world!' 

our day begins with goodwill, hope and celebration. we were given free will : let us will ourselves good, and therefore create better, within ourselves and within our world.

we can, if we will.

namaste to you this day, you peace-loving, compassionate, good person, sweetheart, you ... here's a smile to get you started:

image and likeness

… and there were in the long ago frequent gatherings of the gods and goddesses . there was deep, abiding love and admiration among them for the forward thinking perspective and generous freedom they gave themselves and each other toward recognizing and developing their gifts; and the thought each directed  into creation. they all greatly appreciated and delighted in their shared contributions therein. they loved their gatherings and gave much attention to furthering their own evolution. in such gatherings it was common for them to muse the forwarding of their abilities, and to brainstorm new ideas.

one of the outcomes of these gatherings was that they had set in motion the building blocks of life, based indelibly within the coagulation of energetic spark of themselves : divinity : source. contained herein is the capacity and urging necessity to immediately and eventually create marvels in the great whole of the universe. they looked upon their creations over the aeons of time and introduced the capacity for life to expand itself; to grow, to change, and to evolve along with systems of support, indelibly and with great intelligence, and an attitude of experimentation. with a penchant for ever-evolving change provided by environment, the patterns of individual planetary make-up and ever shifting answered responses to imperceptible movement within development and expansion were allowed and perfected within evolution; and thus ability within form was created.

it became so that the gods were pleased with their creations and desired to further their pleasure by sharing enjoyment in the loveliness. the collective of deities determined their desire to share appreciation for their creations : earth, air, fire, water, the spark of creation. as such there had developed over time an idea within the collective gatherings of deities to bring to the realm a new being. it was in the realm done that the new species would be gifted in the image of themselves, which meant that each individual being within the new species would be given the gods' own attributes, first and foremost, ability to think : to create, and would thus be free to choose : dream : create all aspects of their way forward - as above, so below.

It was acknowledged that the new being would, from the moment of its first breath of life, share life-long connection with source, the creator collective, and with each other through the commonality of spark of life. the connection would be indelible, and would reflect the gods' own feeling toward each other. connection meant that their way among themselves created community essential to their way forward, as it was with the gods themselves. this was deemed good and appropriate, and further discussion began to take shape into the brainchild.

it was determined that one requirement would necessarily include a natural cycle of birth, life and death of individual vessel, as spark itself is as restless as the gods themselves. planetary evolution had shown itself to be integral to momentum, and it was reasoned that the new species would benefit greatly by following the well-established, proven pattern. as each would move through their own cycle, only a more enlightened spark remained, and thus would receive its own next mission, holding precious the lessons learned and gifts developed throughout individual and collective cycle.

as is natural order, growth of divine experience (yearning) for more of life, evolution became the resplendent outcome. each spark of life has in its essence, change, and each being begins and ends its brief time here in constant, unstoppable, natural progression.

as the new being would possess the powers of all of them, the gods/goddesses gave each of the new beings gifts of themselves to be discovered and developed : some would receive the abilities of interpretation of emotion in music, art, and beauty; all would be gifted the abilities of compassion, giving and understanding. the gods themselves are beings of love for themselves, each other and their creations, and so would the new being be also sparked from the love of the gods. some warriors were created for the purpose of preservation, and some of the beings would develop a gift of knowledge of ability to assist others and themselves with each and combinations of physical, emotional and spiritual healing. some, also, were granted the abilities of deep reason. all shared indelible requirement for sustenance, and some received each or combinations of the abilities of home, stone, healer, metal, hunter, and of gatherer. it would be up to each individual to find their gifts, and to develop them into contribution toward the good of the all.

deference in all cases was given to both the maternal and paternal nature of rebirth of spark itself for the gift of evolution; and there was a requirement for the attributes of both within each newly created being, as it is among the gods themselves. many of the beings would receive logic, and some would come here knowing they were granted free access to their power. and it was (also) that some were meant to search their lives long for access to their god-given gifts.

in their quest for creation of the new being, it was that the being would be fragile, and require an especially created environment within which it could thrive. the deities had been watching the development of planetary evolution and determined that the beautiful and richly blessed blue sphere would be a perfect (gift) laboratory for evolution of this marvelous new being. it had been long done that the gods were well pleased with the development of the blue sphere, and its ability for regeneration; thus they became satisfied that, with her permission, this would be their offering of a home for the new species. as they desired to share the lovely planet with their newly created masterpiece, the gods requested permission from the blue sphere, as her participation would be required. she was honored to serve, and grateful that her organization of their ideas was chosen worthy of the gods' grand experiment. she agreed, with the stipulation that there would be the balance of responsibility along with control within the gods' idea of the gift of dominion. she further asked and received her denizens' permission to support the gods' folly, and thus it was that the new home was secured.

consulting with their resident creations, the gods asked each what they would be willing to contribute to the continuation of the fragile new being they were proposing. the extant denizens of the mother planet, earth, each offered part of themselves for the delight and sustenance of the gods' experiment. the moon offered her loveliness, mystery and rejuvenating evening light; the stars, in kind, offered to us beauty and endlessness in our sky. the sun offered warmth and ability within creation of food, as it had for all other sentient and mystical beings. the blue planet herself gladly offered her gifts: oceans, mountains, trees, rain, seasons, renewal, deserts, meadows, rivers, air, etc. : pleased, the gods created earth the new beings' mother, birthing and sustaining all of them into her care. the beings were then given dominion both in the care of her and in the use of her gifts.

water agreed to create itself a life-force for them, fire agreed to warm them. air agreed to work with their bodies to enrich the blood and provide the pathway to connection with the gods, and the rich face of land agreed to the gifts of nourishment, shelter and the tools they would possess the ability to create. the fish and beasts agreed to sacrifice some of their great numbers to honor and sustain them, and the flora of earth agreed to be itself nutritious and healing. earth's infrastructure offered its beauty and brawn in service to the creativity of the creature's comfort, delight and abundance. the lessons would be learnt well by the new being, and it would flourish and prosper.

the new creation would have guidance available at their beckoned call : angels, ascended masters, light beings and healers the gods themselves have dispatched for their upward mobility. along with first breath the new being was also granted free will to be, do and have all each of them would or could create.

this marvelous expression of love from source was given the very power of creation : ability to think, and only breath of life and immortality was reserved for the creator collective itself.

the method of living would be entirely up to each individual to create from the depths of soul ... and available at all times to each and every one of them. ability was then tucked into the very center of each of them, accessible only by themselves : it would be far more readily attainable for some than for others, but available to each and every one all the same through conscious awareness of ability. it would be to each generation to teach the next the availability of awareness of their gifts.

within the realm of the new being, it was recognized that some would discover many gifts, others few, and some were only ready for still others. some, according to the new species' own version of free
will (an indelible gift), would require a number of times through the realm to awaken to the presence and purpose of their own power. it was that some would develop far more of their gifts than others, creating a 'caste' like system of understanding among them. there would be those who:

know they know.
don't know they know.
know they don't know.
don't know they don't know.

just as the gods love communing, sharing and offering perspective with each other, community would be crucially important within the castes. it would be theirs to chart the course of the idea of community in the overlap.

the being was granted (also) kindness, compassion, appreciation, gratitude and the recognition in each other of individual and collective gifts; and an insatiable, innate desire for furthering their own intelligence, education and awareness of their power. there was within divinity ability to grow and expand, and these gifts were (also) bequeathed to the new beings. thus the thought was that humanity would create itself an extension of the cohesive, peaceful, respectful and loving attributes the gods themselves have for one another. they had, after all, granted free will, meaning that the new beings, endowed with the greatest gift of all, divine love, would have in themselves ability to reconcile peace within their own justice.

the whole universe is conspiring to bring into reality
life as it is being created at every moment with our own thoughts.
within the idea of the way forward, the new being would also be bound by the laws of the universe the gods themselves deemed and bound themselves and the whole of creation to.

the newly created being, made in the image and likeness of the duality of themselves, would be at the same time beautiful and hideous; strong and weak; young and old. as is with themselves, each of us is father, each of us is mother, each of us is the child of both, all are welcome, none are excluded, for any reason. we, as they, are all included in the great one : themselves and ourselves, and all of creation, one part of the indelible spark of life itself. it was thus that community within the species was as natural as the gods' own love of gathering to share with each other.

each being is granted the spark of creation : the ability to think, in all its forms, and thus the furtherance of life, to do with what we will. anything is possible as we are imbued with divine ability. we are given to discover the gift of divine intelligence, and the ability to disseminate and to learn our way within divine law. we were also given free will to determine our own way within the confines of bodily mortality.

we are created, each of us, a spark of the infinite collective of divinity, each with our own work to do, journey to take, love to make, and life to create.

as was the idea within the creation of our species, we may, by using our gifts, honor each other, our lovely home and the divine love that created us to help each other along the way. may we look upon each other through the eyes of love and admiration, and create life good among ourselves and for each other. may our offerings be in service to contribution for the good of the all, and may our lives be joyful.

may we find it in ourselves to heal ourselves, as it is our right and duty to do. we were given the gift of ability, and no one may heal us but ourselves; as no one but ourselves sickened ourselves through our thoughts of fear : the self-inflicted wound. may we now learn to access healing, as is readily available and awaits only awareness, and be free of the many fears we gave (and continue to give) ourselves.

may we each understand our place in the divine whole and know that it is by our own choice that we remain unwell. may we know that we are free to rewrite our story at any moment (first in mind), and that one by one the stories we tell ourselves may empower us with our god-given gifts and create overflow of abundance within us and into our world, no matter what we have thus far conceived and convinced. may we reward each other and ourselves generously within inclusion and contribution, and find gratitude for expansion of ability. may we know that our way forward is entirely our story to (re)write, and that we may, if we will, be on earth as it is in heaven.

may we be in our hearts ready for momentum and enthusiastic about our ability (will) to create our own next. may we know that the natural order of the universe is change and that our participation is divinely required in order to create change within (good)will . may we embrace doing the work of self creation (and recreation), and know that we ourselves are indelibly, incessantly creating along the way of living - in today, and this very hour, and this present moment. may we know that we ourselves choose what gets created, and that within each vanished second we have given contribution into creation by only the thought we chose.

may we move forward knowing that we are powerful, and that we are now and forevermore creating our world by our thoughts; and at any time may create any world we desire : would that we think our world good, peaceful, loving, kind, compassionate, contributing, caring, sharing; and that we may then create it so. and then we shall live it, as was deemed by divine law, by universal intelligence, and by our own special place in the hearts of the gods and goddesses of creation itself.

should we deem it so, we may change (recreate) the playing field ourselves, as it has been all throughout time : should we create it so. should we create it so?

"creativity is intelligence having fun" ~ einstein

the gods wondered among themselves what such a being would do with its awesome power (ability), miraculous gifts and latent talents; and created balance within nuance. they gave the mechanism for the beings' growth into the self, created the universal laws and handed the golden key of life into the hands of ourselves.

humanity was created, was fruitful and multiplied ... and multiplied ... and multiplied ...

these dreams...

someone asked me recently, what are you about?

in reply to reading a few of the posts here and in conversations we have had about my way forward in the world, i had a few responses, but knew that the answers i had given were insufficient. this question has remarkable implications within the framework of being in life as i say i am.

my friend asked me, most incredulously, if i honestly believe that the universe can and will take care of me. my unequivocal answer is : i do, even as i also take care of me. i am working diligently toward something ... i consciously thought about the answer to his question long after our conversation was over.

what i know is that dreaming a reality i choose means the qualities of a society wherein goodwill is the foundation of possibility, and all people may look at each other and see themselves cared for, loved and important is the reality . that contribution is the motivation for momentum and that divine gifts are the basis for each and all contributing to the common good. that the common good includes our care and responsibility to/for our mother planet, and that all of humanity knows (is educated) and creates action around the importance of, and responsibility (to ourselves, to our planet home) for clean air, clean water, resource care and sustainability; and that the most important contribution of all is creating a new version of 'good life' involving care of/for our own habitat, as well as ourselves and each other. 

that our children and ourselves are encouraged to discover solutions to genuinely level the proverbial playing field, eradicating poverty through the glad transference and sharing of ability; encompassing kindness, compassion and a peaceful way among ourselves by and for each other. that we are able to have a real, ready and achievable expectation of a good life by our own contribution, and to see love (gratitude, happiness, goodwill, peace, etc.) emanating into and from our own and each others' eyes. that we wonder how we may all help each other to be better, even as we express better within our own actions, thoughts and beliefs. that our children may inherit an earth that continues to be able to care for them, even as she has cared for so many of their ancestors : to breathe them, to feed them, to water them and to grow them into a better version of our selves. in a broad nutshell, i dream of a version of humanity wherein there is the willing, giving heart of love ... to all, for all; and respect, appreciation and gratitude from/to every single one of us ... and for our lovely, abiding home : earth.

this big dream includes the conscious repurposing of our thoughts : and the redirection of our aspirations. to choose to be better is to choose betterment for all, ourselves and all others. 

it is to choose compassion, to choose kindness, to encourage goodwill by actions we ourselves take in every single now, in each and every moment. it is asking ourselves in every moment and in every situation : 

how may i offer love in this moment? 
how may i be more loving? 
how may i help? 
how may i serve? 

this shift in perception is a process : it is generational, and may only begin when begun. 

there is no shame in reshaping the brass ring, although there is great resistance. 'this is the way it has always been' has become 'this is the way it will always be.' in my dream there is no get and have : there is give and share. there is no one who is or has better, but all share in good equally. perhaps in this dream 'ownership' does not exist. the goal of work is the creation of contribution toward a more benevolent and peaceful society. there is no religion or deity or human that is bloodthirsty or which makes others wrong for their own beliefs. there is diverse acceptance and a spirit of welcoming to all. within a societal shift to contribution and sharing and giving, there is no money, so there is no indelible requirement to harm other beings in the pursuit of it. there are no corporations, there is no monetary profit, and there is only using resources necessary for our care from earth. 

we have (in this dream) relearned desire, and desire is for the furtherance of good : for care of and for ourselves and all others : for care of and for our benevolent mother planet.

in our current configuration each generation wants a version of 'better' that has become little more than relentless pursuit within desire for the world of things. some of us wish for a new couch, while some of us are forced by circumstance to wish for shelter and food. we have created ourselves sick and needy by our aversion to caring for ourselves and others. we have created health a purvey of those who can afford to have (our version of) it, and have created diseases which match drugs we have created in need of disease, so the drug purveyors may create more drugs (and plenty of profit). 

we have created ourselves needy and greedy by our self-created need to get and have. and, we have created war with each other over our lust for control of each other, of profit, and of resources we deem precious (profitable). we seem to have forgotten that ebb and flow are the natural rhythm of our lives, and have allowed our fear of being without to create an incessant struggle to show ourselves and others our power to conquer. we have (also) forgotten that the balance of control within dominion is responsibility.

this is a tiny planet.

our version of a 'good life' includes (almost exclusively) the dreams of what we would 'buy' if we could. we beg and plead for others to share, with only the thought of a return of money. to consciously direct thought toward the cost of what we buy includes thinking about the toll of creating the world of things : the cost to ourselves, to our planet, and to our souls.  to spell all of this out, money itself (the man-made god which pervades our species and perverts our thoughts, creating a negative and ungrateful view of get and have) is, in reality, the single reason we believe ourselves in lack, suffering. 

money is only one version of abundance, and was created necessary within our man-made version of our vision of this good life we all so earnestly, incessantly crave and strive for. abundance itself is the frequency of the gods : abundance in all things is available at all times, to all of us. its primary activator is gratitude, followed by action and self-contrived ability. to see ourselves grateful and able means we are abundant, and means we have found the mechanism to unlock our own potential. 

what if we teach (and thereby become) the next version of ourselves (from day one of life) the joy within gratitude, the satisfaction of ability, the peace within love, the selflessness of giving, the momentum of contribution, and the reward in sharing what we have with all others, every moment : what kind of society could we then create? 

what if there is no competition, and therefore nothing to win or lose? what if our contribution could be enough, and living a good life involved conscious evolution to possibility of better? 

in this dream, i imagine that we all contribute, and we are all worthy. we are able and allowed to discover and to grow our divine gifts, talents and abilities into contribution that makes us (then) able to create better for ourselves, each other and our planet. and thus it is so.

these dreams : for a world in which imagination, kindness, contribution, goodwill, peace and love are our indelible way forward, and in which the qualities that create humanity 'good' are enough for all to prosper and become all they choose to be.

yes. there is unlimited, inexhaustible abundance available within imagining what is possible when we tune into the energy, the vibration, of divine universal intelligence : i do believe ... therefore, i am that, i am.

possibility is as plausible as we say it is : 
i'm possible is the reinvention of impossible.

thanks for sharing your time with me ... and thanks for thinking.

be extraordinary.

last night i came close to forgetting how close i am...

in the midst of a 'feel helpless' meltdown i wondered about reciprocity. i prayed, with the knowledge of my own contribution (and within gratitude for the knowing of ability within me to create), to be found worthy of the blessing of a miracle.

the struggle seems underwhelming : within my own integrity, who am i, i asked, to write about what it means to be a person who is living a self-created life? one in which i am who i say i am, one in which my dream (which i bothered to create and believe myself within) is brought by perseverance and ability within conscious awareness. the sublime knowing in my own soul that the ancient wisdom shared by divinity through the sages of the ages has been carried forward and lived in my own life, as is my chosen mission within purpose, and that the promise is, in fact, actualized. to know that i have dared greatly and believed that i am all i choose/desire to be, and so i am. that the promise : the extraordinary dream i have dared to dream, i have brought, and is my reality : the deeply satisfying, quiet knowing that i am now living my own best life(!), and that through the process of learning my (divinely endowed) power i have brought the flow of the eternal tide of ability and created my own version of possibility?!??!! 

you should know that in this moment, 
in this very now,
 i am. 

you should also know that what i write here 
is as much for me
 as it is for you. 

in reply to my question, who am i to write about it, 
lies its own answer : 
i am.

i know i am on task : i know in my own countenance that i have done (and continue to do) my (sacred) work, and that my dream is real because i have made (created) it so. i also know that the divine works in its own way and time, and that my good is on its way to me. into the face of doubt i stared, and realized that i have done (and continue to do) all i can. i am creating in the way that presents in need of creation. and that creation is good. 

i (ultimately) made the choice to search (again) for strength : which was granted, and so i stand ... ready, willing, accepting and in complete surrender. i realize (again) that i am ... all i choose to be in this, my own, one, only extraordinary life. 

i am.

dream poem :

this is as real and personal as i know how to be ... there is great blessing here : and i am its humble, grateful recipient. herein lies reciprocity : within gratitude : and i am (again) at peace with/in the journey.

thank you for being here : it is my wish that you find your miracle too ... 

wherever, however it presents.

namaste to you : namaste to me : namaste to the one : namaste to all.
