Our Utmost Importance

Happiness is our utmost importance to living happily ever after.~Ani Po

“Everyone holds a mix of opinions, beliefs, and expectations on a myriad of subjects. When you give your attention to something, that Vibration becomes activated and comes to the forefront. And the more often you focus upon it, and cause it to come to the forefront, the more dominant it becomes.

You have the option of making a good-feeling aspect of another person dominant in your Vibration or of making a bad-feeling aspect dominant, and whatever aspect you regularly choose will become the Vibrational basis of your relationship. When your happiness becomes your highest priority, and so you deliberately keep active the best-feeling aspects of others, you will train your Vibrational frequency in such a way that they will not be able to rendezvous with you in any way that does not feel good when it happens.

The only way for anyone to be consistently happy is to understand that the feeling of happiness is simply about alignment with the Source within. When you are in your Vortex of Creation, you are lined up with all-that-you-have-become and with everything that you have asked for. There simply is no substitute for that alignment.”

Allowance

Negative emotion is your indicator of resistance, while positive emotion is your indicator of allowance. And they are on the same meter: allowance; resistance. Allowance; resistance.~Abraham

Which do we choose? Do we notice the difference? Take note. As one will lead us to happiness, the other shall lead us to an opposing. Which do we choose?

Align With Source

Source is there for everyone at all times. We are always there. And so when you are aware of the presence of Source and when you are not offering a vibration that prevents you from your alignment with Source, then you have those wonderful moments. And you can do that all the time. And people refer to those who are doing that as masters. But all of you can do that. It is the mastery of focus. That’s what it is.

—Abraham

Align with Source

Universe Knows All Things

The Universe knows all things and is responding to the vibration that you are sending. When you are sending your vibration on purpose, you are orchestrating what the Universe is aligning for you.~Abraham

Abraham quote

Living By Faith

There are those who know and those who don’t, either way they share a common denominator…Faith. We can knowingly move forward and unknowingly move forward ultimately arriving on time. The key to arriving is faith.

Faith is the knowing that everything will work out, in your favor, even when the current situation does not dictate as so. When everyone gives up, the believers press on. When we activate our faith we essentially are tapping into a universal law of attraction.

As a man thinketh, so is He.~Abraham

If a person continues to have thoughts “I am too busy,” “I cannot do that,”We are never going to make it,” or “my life is going nowhere,” than the basic laws will assuredly grant the persons wish. If, however the person knows that everything will occur or arrive exactly as it is intended, filling this persons life with more abundance…then it shall equally be so.

We now return to Ani Po, as she witnesses the Warrior and Pilgrim living by faith (Note: this story is based on true events):

One day Ani Po was driving with her friend Mamani, when her friend noticed the gas gauge was lit and needle on empty. Alarmed she expressed her concern to Ani Po. While Ani Po was not worried, Mamani began to get anxious. Ani Po told her about a similar situation and how everything turned out in her favor…

Ani Po: I was driving a Holy Man to a destination about two to three hours away. He was to giving a sermon to a congregation. Offering to drive him, we were on our way. Only thirty minutes into the drive I noticed the gas ’empty’ gauge light come on and the needle was indeed on empty.

To not raise alarm, keeping it to myself and hoping to find a filling station soon. At this time, thoughts of determination filled my being and somehow knew we would arrive safely and on time.

Even though I had thoughts of arriving on time, I informed my passenger…

“Father, I just want to let you know that we are on empty and have been for some time.”

To which he replied: “Are you worried?”

“No, something is telling me we are going to make it.”

“Then I am not worried. The Lord will get us there safely and I can feel your faith is strong.”

They arrived safely and on time. In pure joy and amazement, slight disbelief, Ani Po gave thanks to that which needs no label, “Thank you For showing me The Way.” Ani Po saw firsthand the power of faith as she wholeheartedly believed she would arrive exactly when they were intended to…thankfully it was the time her passenger was expected to arrive.

During the ceremony, Ani Po whispered to parishioners, “Do you have any gas I could use to get me to a filling station?” After numerous replies someone alerted Ani po, “there is a filling station just a half of a block away.”

Ani Po: “still not sure I will make it as we just drove two and half hours on fumes all the while the gas ’empty’ light was on.”

Still with no luck finding gas from a parishioner, she starts her truck and drives to the filling station with no troubles. She could have merely walked to the filling station, but instead she knew that her truck would start yet again and arrive on time. After arriving safely, filling up her tank, getting in and driving her friend home to the monastery, they both agreed they had witnessed a miracle.

As Ani Po finished telling her story, Mamani interrupts, “that’s great, but I do not think we are going to make it.”

Just then the engine stopped and they were stranded without gas. While Mamani released her anger, Ani Po just smiled, knowing that in a moment they would be rescued. While the Warrior (Ani Po) remains calm during adversity, the Pilgrim (Mamani) loses hope, feeling lost once again. Ani Po reached over and laid her hand upon her friends, “Mamani it is going to be ok. Help will arrive for us very soon.” Timely, a stranger taps on the window asking if they needed gas.

So what is the difference in these situations? What happened differently between Ani Po and Mamani? Was it coincidence or a miracle? Could it have happened differently? All of these questions remain unanswered, but Ani Po knows better as she lives purely by faith. In doing so, She arrives exactly when she is intended to…no longer giving her reason to doubt The Way.

Ani Po’s situation was extreme and can be disputed, but still remains unexplained. Her and her passenger drove on empty for two and half hours, purely on faith. With this lesson in her back pocket, she understands the meaning of faith…lending more hope that All is Good.

Living by faith, we find hope;

Through hope, we find Love;

Finding Love;

We find The Way.

~Ani Po

Stepping into the Canvas purely by faith. In faith we see hope painted on the horizon, walking towards it we find Love. Even during times of adversity, it is the Warrior who asserts, “even though my current situation looks bleak, I know that it will end in a silver-lining, painting The Canvas as I see it.”

When Hell Freezes Over

As the temperatures rise, we escape to cooler grounds. From AC unit to AC unit, we find our cool once again. Paralleled…our lives are symbolic of these days.

As the heat rises, we retreat to cooler grounds. The temperature may not actually rise, but the heat definitely does. How do you stay cool? How do you find Calmer, cooler grounds?

From the time we get up to the time we go to sleep, we are tested by varying temperatures throughout our days. Staying cool is often difficult. While some will find calmness, others remain in chaos. Whether the temperature is hot or cool, that depends on our thoughts. If we are spoiled by the falsities of AC units and other means to remain cool, then we forget to rely on our true nature… that of peace, love, and tranquility. In tranquility we find moments that will cool the hottest of days. As the temperature rises on the outside, may the temperature on the inside be cool.

As within, So without.

Yesterday, while the heat was high, I saw this lesson firsthand. As to set an eighth or lunch in the heat directly under the sun, the state cool with thoughts of coolness. Two other people from work, came to join them but could not take the heat. They complained by nature, and typically complained whether it was cold or hot. That yesterday was no different.

As we sit in calmness we remain cool;

sit in chaos, remain in the heat.

~Ani Po

Stepping into the Canvas as cool as can be. Whether the thermostat is rising or it is cool, may your mindset be that of cool. Whatever the heat of the moment, remain centered in coolness…and you will forever be cooled. If we have thoughts of angst, we are sure to feel heat; thoughts of love and compassion, we remain cool for eternity. As a man thinketh, so is he.~Abraham

Lighting The Sacred Flame

In every culture we have rituals. Rituals of faith, sports, and  daily events. These rituals are merely rituals but also a catalyst of something greater. What do these rituals mean? What do they symbolize?

Note: Ani Po is Hebrew for I am here. When we come to a place of self-realization, we individually declare…I am here. Ani Po represents the self-realized.

 
When Ani Po was a girl, she noticed rituals within her church. She had to sit, stand, kneel, bow to the altar, and genuflect to the sacristy. Not understanding fully what these rituals met until she was much older.

 

When she was older, she learned rituals of sports. She would prep before the swim meet with certain rituals that claimed to bring her success. Often, she would play certain types of music to motivate her. During the meet she would consume dry Kool-Aid, to give her a boost of energy. Sadly, kids are now consuming Monster or Red Bull. Often times she saw kids drinking lemon juice to get them going. While on the blocks, before diving in for her competition, she would have certain bodily movements as a ritual: waving her arms in the air, shaking them about. All of these are merely rituals but what do they need?

Are the rituals themselves what brings us to our end goal or results? Are these rituals the means of how we get to that which we seek? These rituals are merely catalysts to where we are going, to what we seek and finally paradise.

”As a man thinketh, so is he.”

~Abraham

When Ani Po was a little older she would attend events where they spoke about sacred ground, sacred rituals, and sacred beliefs. She went on a retreat or camping event and was told about sacred ground, cautioning her from walking on this sacred ground. Similarly when we go to a cemetery, we are told it is sacred ground and we should respect those who lay beneath our feet. Paying respect in our hearts, we avoid walking on sacred ground. The reality of this is…All is sacred ground, if that is where our heart is.

Recently at a fire ceremony, Ani Po witnessed a sacred fire lit before observers. They spoke of the sacred fire with highest respect, and explained how to respect it. The sacred fire reminds Ani Po of when she was younger once again. When she was a little girl she witnessed a sacred fire and accidentally threw trash into the fire. She was scolded by an elder of the tribe, for throwing trash into the sacred fire and desecrating its very existence. This Elder explained to her that trash cannot go in the sacred fire. To her reply, “isn’t everything sacred?” Angrily, the elder pulls her away from the sacred fire. Another elder comes up to her smiling and explains, “You have far greater knowledge then he. You are correct everything sacred and don’t ever forget that.”

 
A ritual is only a ritual until the heart is applied…then it becomes sacred. The ritual is merely a catalyst of what could or should be. Without the sacred knowledge of love, rituals are only rituals. Without heart consciousness, the ritual is no longer sacred and is merely a ritual.

My heart was hot within me; and my body was on fire; then spoke I with my tongue, Lord, show me mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know my destiny. Psalm 39:3-4

Stepping into the canvas…lighting an eternal flame. What ever the catalyst, what ever the ritual…go further and see the end result as love. Love unconditionally and light the sacred flame within your being. The sacred flame, the true sacred flame, lay deep within your soul. Dig deep, find the sacred flame, light it and let it burn out of control. Once lit…your world will never be the same. Much agape to you…Ani Po.
