Filters

Standard

Last night the campus security officer patrolling the hall stopped in to say hey. I’ve seen him around but don’t know him all that well. Our hours are completely opposite. He saw the pictures of my kids on the credenza and asked about their ages, what they do and where they go to school. I gave him the cliff notes and promptly turned back to the work I wanted to finish before leaving for the day. Looking around the office he says, “I bet you’re one of those women who goes home, cooks dinner and then sits down in front of the TV to eat and watch Oprah.”

“I don’t watch Oprah,” I said, looking down at my work.

“Oh, ok, then, probably The View, or Dancing with the Stars, or Biggest Loser or TMZ,” he rambles on.

Still working, I look up at him and just stare thinking, “What a complete idiot.” Wanting to lunge across my desk at him, I calmly stated, “No, I go home, make dinner for my son and I, and then I write, walk, or if I don’t have to work the next day, I head out to dance. I might catch a movie on Netflix.” The interesting thing about this exchange is that while it was happening, I could feel where the wanting to lunge at him was coming from. In the end you can see I kept my composure and was very diplomatic. I used being in the moment and mindfulness to filter my own thoughts and words before acting on them.

I love that saying, “To assume makes an ass out of u and me.” It’s so appropriate here. I’m a petite blonde, dress professionally and while at the office always behave in a business-like manner. However much of my life, I’ve been viewed as the stereotypical cute dumb blonde thing, even when my behavior is quite the opposite. It seems this stereotype is following me into middle-age and beyond. This is where the wanting to lunge across the desk at him comes from. I have always dressed and behaved professionally, so why does this continue? It can only be the autopilot thinking that comes along with living as human.

Very obviously this gentleman has no idea how to filter his thoughts or words before they escape his lips. He spoke from his own experience with no thought that what he was saying might be considered offensive. In my post Living Integrity, I talk about choosing thought, word and deed carefully.

“Acting with integrity means examining the words before they fly out. Words have power, words can have sharp edges, or not. See? Your choice. Will you let those words go? Is it really necessary? Or can you simply make your thoughts known in a more respectful manner?”

Living in Spirit means using filters, it requires mindful choices, deliberate words and actions. Check your mouth at the door like you check your teeth after eating to make sure nothing is stuck in them that might be undesirable. We are all part of the Whole, be kind to one another.

” When we operate from the realization of self-responsibility, we are empowered to create an experience of life that is creative, meaningful, joyful and of service to the Whole. This is our true destiny.” ~ Dr. Jim Lockard

Manifested Love

Standard

This most recent and very remarkable meditative vision validates my lifetime of intuitive events, prophetic dreams, and psychic abilities. We and all that surrounds us are part of God, Collective Creators, All That Is, the Spirit Within and About.

February 24 2012 – 5 a.m.

“I am one of many, yet we are as one, connected, intertwined with no means, method or desire to be separate. Collectively in what can only be called great love, the most encompassing love, which is a state of being, we are Creators. I exist as my Creator, or rather I am the Creator of my “self,” the body manifest on Earth. I am, you are as you exist physically on Earth. There is nothing but Love, no strife, no pain, no opposites.

The colors are many, vivid, alive, moving and flowing. All character is clothed in fluid pastel colored hues. The air is alive with excited conversation, planning a path of events. There is a joyful sense of knowing in the midst of this natural beauty and being – nature, but aware nature living as part of the Spirit Collective.

During this time, I am comfortably aware that earthly reality provides the opportunity for individualization, individual creativity and autonomy, something we cannot experience as part of the Collective. Yet even at the core of this individualization, there is a creative story and interweaving of all personalities that is agreed upon in the purest form. Finished with our discussion, we agree it’s time to return.

Me, my self, as a conscious representation of the Whole, begins to return to this place. I feel acceleration, traveling along a thread of energy and am completely aware that I‘m returning to the physical state – still always connected to the Whole that is all that exists.”

Now, back in the physical, I open my eyes. I’ve returned and feel a sadness and yearning because of this new knowledge and awareness. I feel homesick, but have a heightened sense of purpose and know that you dear reader are the reason I write. We are more than this…

“…as God’s purpose is to glorify the individual man (or soul) in the earth, so the highest purpose of an individual soul or entity is to glorify the Creative Energy or God in the Earth.” 338-3 ~ Edgar Cayce
