~ Re-post from 4.20.2012 when it was called "Paradise" ~ Someone reminded me of this one, catching and sort of re-working one of the lines. I like it ~
"Thrive anywhere. Regardless of product used, money spent or effort given, the battle seems won by the weed."
So, thank you for the reminder! This is what we are meant to do.
We are meant to "Thrive Anywhere".
A field of yellow catches my eye and I turn to enjoy the view. This little patch of dirt, squished between cement sidewalk and highway, is awash with color on this rainy spring morning. I am surprised. I drive by here every day and have never noticed. A closer look offers an answer, these are weeds.
Relentless and persistent, dandelions thrive anywhere. Regardless of product used, money spent or effort given, the battle seems won by the weed.
A dear friend of mine loves them and looks forward to their emergence. It does seem to be merely a preference instead of a fact that dandelions are an eyesore. You’d be hard pressed to tell the difference from a distance between a field of daffodils and a field of dandelions. One you plant, the other you pull.
We have in our midst many “weeds” that are about to be pulled. They must be. Like the plant, once they gain strength in an area they choke out all other life. All resources support them. Nothing else can thrive. It is the way weeds work, in human and plant form. They know nothing else but to infiltrate and dominate.
“Weeds” are not less than the rest of us. They are not supportive however and it is time to get rid of them. We can no longer thrive with them in our midst. The movie bearing that name illustrates what has been happening.
This is what we are doing as a race. We are removing those that would take over and destroy the rest. It is necessary in order to continue. Hating the dandelion or getting angry at it is not productive. A clean removal of the entire plant must be accomplished. We have discovered the root and we are digging it out. We want a field of different flowers now. We want to plant them ourselves rather than being overrun.
We are wildflowers, every one. We are looking now for fertile ground. Whether we find it or not depends on how we get rid of the weeds. The normal stuff isn’t working. It is time for a new plan.
Twice I’ve removed persistent, giant, deeply rooted weeds. The first time I hated that weed. It had destroyed parts of my fence and numerous, expensive ornamentals that I had carefully planted. I dumped a quart of gasoline on it – in the process killing not just the weed, but everything else. It’s been years and still nothing grows there. The weed is gone, but at the expense of all life.
The second weed was more of a small, ugly, relentless bush. We wrapped a chain around it and a truck pulled it out. It took effort, a group of us, planning and precision. It was taken out, roots and all, and has never returned. Flowers grow beautifully in its place.
We are seeing the depths of the roots of our human “weeds”. They need to be removed, not destroyed. Respect for all of life demands that each action benefit the whole. Once these weeds are gone, we are going to need fertile ground.
We are gardeners, not weed killers. Once a dandelion is removed at the root, you only need to drop it on the nearby soil, exposing the root. It can no longer grow and will naturally decompose, nourishing the ground beneath.
We are being called now to proceed with wisdom to activate the love that we are. It is this love that supports all of life.
We are seven billion and more powerful than the weeds. They have no choice but to yield to our decision. All of life flourishes when love dictates each movement. You have come to show the way.
These “weeds” in our midst understand only dominance; divide and conquer. They require removal if really aggressive and re-education. Proceed with love. Hatred is a fruitless enterprise. Growth is paramount. Collaboration for mutual benefit is what we are here to do.
You have come now to energize us all with your love and your light – to nourish this beautiful home called earth. Love in every moment. This is how we get to Paradise.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
This ego is a construct of this dimension. It is true that your personality remains with you always – you are who you are – yet your personality is not your ego.
The essence of you (your personality) is what is recognized by others you have known. The experience of meeting someone for the “first time” and feeling immediate familiarity happens because you’ve been together before – as other versions of you. In the case of “love at first sight” the prior connection was an important and loving one.
This doesn’t always mean you’ve been lovers in your “past”. Love is expressed deeply in many relationships – parent/child, brother/sister, lifelong friend or beloved grandparent each create a bond that spans lifetimes.
So what is love? Love is the fabric of you. You are birthed from Source, an element that holds the identical components of our Creator. Everything God can do you can do also. This is not blasphemy, it is truth. The love of God is all encompassing, unconditional, eternal and free. This is what you are, and it defines where we are headed. Life is an evolutionary progression. We are experiencing now just a moment in an eternal string of potentials.
This human that is you today has developed thought patterns, necessary to keep you focused in this dimension; the patterns of ego. As we begin to prepare ourselves for Ascension, we let go of them. They are no longer necessary. They were needed to keep us here, “believing the dream”. This life was set up so that we’d experience it as if it were real. It is not, and as we gradually uncover the truth we simultaneously increase our vibration – Ascension.
Our bodies are doing this by prior agreement. Ascension was always the plan. It is not something to worry about or wonder if you’ll be ready for. You are on the list and your body is fully aware. As our planet raises her vibration, so do we. This is a simultaneous, beautiful event and we’ll enjoy it as One. There is no test or tool necessary, it is already done. We are Ascending right now.
Our fears were creations of our ego and a part of this dimension. Ascension puts them behind us. Where we are headed, there is only love. There is no loss in truth. There is only Agape.
Love is what is felt for everyone. Oneness is understood. Punishment is not even considered an option; there is no blame. We do, in fact, love everyone equally. There are some we favor and harmonize with beautifully – these souls we gravitate towards and dance with again and again. There are none we hate.
This is life in the next dimension and our natural state. Our ego is not bad; it just can’t go where we are headed. We can seek justice and work to correct what does not serve us without adopting a divisive belief system that segregates us. These are habits of this third dimension. We can drop them right now. All it takes is a decision.
We’ve played our parts and are acting our roles as we agreed to do before arriving. With free will, we colored them in our own unique way, using a pallet of ego. They are not, in truth, who we are. This was and is a grand production, believable and captivating. We’ve done a great job.
It’s time for new roles, with less acting and more truth. Our bodies are already preparing. It is our minds that have to get ready now; it’s almost time to take the stage. We were meant for this part. It’s going to be the greatest show in the galaxy, produced with perfection.
We are the ones we are all waiting for!!
