To Thine Enemies Silent Blessings Sent

Recently I was reading a poem, written by John Ruskin, and it got me thinking about life purpose. Our purpose my vary from person to person, but rest assured we all have one. On a planet that follows a  Law of Polarity, we have those who create good and those who wreak havoc…both are on purpose. Whatever our purpose, it is also said that whatever we put into this world is what receive. Thereby if we project negativity into the world, that is all we shall ever know.

I wish you some new Love of Lovely things,

and some new forgetfulness of the teasing things,

and higher pride in the praising things,

and some sweeter peace from the hurrying things,

and some closer fence from the worrying things.

~John Ruskin

As a greater whole, we see only the divine creation. Whilst looking closely we see all the imperfections. Whether they be at a global level or individual levels…guaranteed there are imperfections. How we handle these imperfections is how we see ourselves. If we only see flaws, then we ourselves shall be flawed. If we see the divine beauty, then so shall our true identity be exposed.

Regarding purpose…what we shall sow, so shall we reap. The Law of cause and effect states that whatever we put into this world, we shall receive. We can continue the ways of darkness, only to attract more black clouds into our lives. Or we can choose to Light the way, attracting more sunshine into our lives. How does one know whether their purpose is good or evil? Well, chances are those reading this are on a brightened path searching for more goodness in their lives.

A good man brings out good things from good treasures,

and a bad man brings out bad things from bad treasures.

Matthew 12:35

We have ability to master our thoughts and behaviors, but we cannot control the will of another. There may always be someone who will try to bring us down to negative levels. We must remain strong while giving them a silent blessing. One day maybe they will have a change in heart, but sadly…maybe they won’t. It is not up to us to change them, but only worry about the self. We can, at times of transgression, give silent blessing as Christ taught us. The Lord’s prayer not only asks for forgiveness but protection from future encounters from evil…

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thin is the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

Now and forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13

If we judge or blame another for their anger or their evil ways, we shall only add fuel to their fire. By sending a silent blessing, it not only self-distinguishes the fire mounting within, but may even extinguish their anger.

If an individual comes to the realization of no longer wanting to feel negativity in their daily life, they have an option to change how they feel. Asking for guidance is a good start, but  knowing it to be true is the destination. Again, those daring to read this posting, are probably on a brightened path…rejoice!

Stepping into the Canvas giving silent blessings. Not only on those who bring good into the world, but those who bring the opposition. It is positivity that makes us feel good, but negativity that brings us down. Rising above this negativity and blessing it…we shall change our own path. Through negativity it shall present its polarity. Again those reading this…chances are the negativity has made you strong. Rejoice!

Why You Gotta Be So Mean?

Have you ever met a person who is just down right mean to every person they meet? Chances are you have. We can choose to follow in these footsteps and/or remain in the shadows of those meanies (word adopted from one of my god children as he spoke of meanies on his favorite Riverdance show). We can also rise up from this unpleasant place, entering into a world of pure happiness. We are not meant to be miserable in life. If those others choose to remain there…in misery…that is their choice, not yours. Their reality does not have to paint yours.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

~Wayne W. Dyer

Being open to a new thought process, a process of Love and Peace, allowing us to find something far greater than we ever imagined. In these thoughts of Love and Peace we are creating a life of endless possibilities. Remain in the field of negativity and that is where you will remain. Step into the fields of Positivity and the world will know your name.

Ani Po experiences the negative sort quite often, but is well guarded in this art of misery. During a given encounter, Ani Po gave notice to a recent employer. It was not easy to do as it was, but when she sent words of apology towards an individual, as she felt a bit of guilt in letting her and the team down, she was met with some shocking words. Instead of words of encouragement, Ani Po was met with words of bitterness and hate. She was kicked in the shins with the other person’s words.

Ani Po is not always sure if the other person intentionally knew she was being cruel or if that is all they know. One persons reality can be so tainted in hate, that their reality is just that…filled with hate. Instead of giving that person a lesson in virtue, Ani Po quietly spoke under her breath, “Forgive them Father…for they Know not what they do.”

How often have you met a person like this? Do you dare speak up or what is true? or do you quietly bless them, knowing that the Laws of Karma will take its due course? Whatever the case, it is our best interest to stand tall, no matter what, remaining true to ourselves and protecting ourselves from harms way. How do we protect ourselves?

There are many ways and are accessible at any time: We can call on Angels to protect us…Archangel Michael, Raphael, etc.; We can call on our ancestors before us…Fathers, Grandfathers before us; We can also call on the Great I Am. We are never alone and there is always help available…sometimes the best medicine is merely talking to a close friend (Angels of the flesh)… getting it off our chest. Whatever way works for you apply this, but do not allow the other person’s negativity to affect your day. Their negativity is not your cup of tea anyway. You would rather have a cup of Agape Tea…why not pour a cup now?

My creed is this:  The place to be happy is here. 

The time to be happy is now.  The way to be happy is to make others so.

~Robert Ingersoll

Stepping into the Canvas with Agape in our Heart. This unconditional Love that carries us throughout our day will continue to pour onto those we encounter. The Tea served, will no longer be of Hate, Lust or Fear. No. The only Tea served is that of Love, Peace and Hope. Would you care to join me in a nice warm cup of Agape Tea?


Dog vs Karma: Which has the Bigger Bite?

Ever wonder why good things happen to some people, and bad things always happen to others? Some say it is Karmic Law or Law of Attraction that rule our days. Whatever we put out into the universe, we will receive. Thereby deducing to whatever thoughts or actions we send, we will receive on a similar frequency.

Up until the Warrior was 35 years, she rode a roller-coaster ride with continuous ups and downs. She used to think that when something good happened, something bad was right around the corner. While it was true about the ups and downs, this isn’t how it works. What she failed to see was: when feeling good, we attract more good; feeling bad, we attract more bad. Karmic Law or Law of Attraction, whatever the law…it has truth.

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

~Proverbs 23:7

At the 35 years old, the time of her shift towards positivity, she realized her thoughts  affected her daily outcomes. Whether good thoughts or bad thoughts, they attracted the same force into her life. We use the analogy of good and bad here, for the basic principal of understanding. Human consciousness sees two sides to every story: one has a ‘good’ outcome and the other had ‘bad’ outcome. We are the only sentient being that see dualities.

Understanding these principles better, the warrior begins making alternative plans throughout her days. Filling them with gladness, she in return gets more to be glad about. Pilgrims often stop her to correct her, “you can’t possibly see everything as good…it just doesn’t work like that.” Being young, the warrior might have shut down for 2-3 days with such a negative statement. Being stronger she smiles at the pilgrim, “thank you for your opinion, but in my world nothing ever goes wrong.” This might seem delusional, but in reality we are all delusional…why not be delusional and feel good, attracting everything we most desire?

Even though our Warrior has just begun to experience all that the Universe has to offer, even in her ups and downs of the roller-coaster, she has always remained virtuous. Her actions while not always perfect in her youth,  always treated people with the ‘golden rule’ in mind: “We are to treat people as we want to be treated.” Knowing what she knows now, she has adopted the ‘Platinum Rule.’ One step further than the golden, “we are to treat people as THEY want to be treated.” Because of our many diversities, we may not want the same things, thereby offering what the other person wants.

Have you ever heard the expression, “be careful not to burn a bridge? ”

Years ago, when the Warrior was yet a pilgrim herself, she was still in training as a healer and surrounded by vicious attack dogs. Her daily life was walking on pins and needles as she received her training from a leader who obviously was not happy in life. The Warrior was verbally abused, made to feel inferior. It was as if she was bitten by a large  hungry wolf. Not being able to ever sit and relax, her left cheek throbbed from continues biting. Turning the other cheek, she forgave the hungry wolves who abused her.

Twenty years later when she has nearly mastered her healing practice, the Warrior receives a knock at her door. It was one of the hungry wolves from her past. Feeling instant pain in her left side, her somatic response reminds her of the pain she endured just by the mere sight of this hungry wolf. Something is different this time.

The hungry wolf is weak and hungry. Not for blood, but for life. Worn and tattered, she asks for a hand out. The Warrior turned her cheek once more,  remembering to offer the Heart of Compassion at all times. She agrees to letting the hungry wolf into her house and offers her sustenance. The wolf explains that she has no work and cannot support her family in these trying times. She then asks for a job.

The Warrior smiles, offering her more compassion. She explains, “when I was young, you were the meanest person to me. You made me feel inferior, inadequate as a human being, and hated going to school everyday. Now you sit here asking for a handout. I am a forgiving person and I hope you have changed your ways, knowing that you cannot treat people with such indignity. I will see what I can do.” The Warrior and the wolf embrace, comforting the wolf…then they part and go their separate ways.

While the Warrior unfortunately did not have an available position, she was sincere and took the opportunity to express her Heart of Compassion. The irony here is that when she was young she got bit on the butt by a hungry wolf. Now the hungry wolf is getting bit on the butt by Karmic Law. When we live in the flesh, just as the Warrior experienced, the pain lasts only for a moment as it is only flesh healing with time. The bitten becomes strong, but the biter opens herself up to more pain later on. So which bite hurt more? The bite of the hungry wolf or the bite of Karmic Law. Who felt it more? The Warrior or the Hungry wolf?

Stepping into the Canvas with a softer step. Meeting mother earth with every step, giving her a gentle kiss. We walk softly among the pilgrims and other Warriors with better understanding of who we are and how we got here. In all our adversities and all our glorious moments, we have risen to this very day. This is our day to shine and not one person can take that away from us.
