Love is a truth. You can throw things at it, yell at it, call it names, hide it, cover it, refuse to acknowledge it, deny it or ignore it; it will remain.
Love is the foundation of each interaction, every relationship and all of life. None of this would be here if not for love. We exist in a world of form; birthed from Agape. You are the outsourcing of God’s love.
The acceptance of oneness is a gradual process. As you look into your own eyes and find your inner light, you simultaneously discover the light in each other. We are ever seeking beings, pushing forward always for more. Expansion and growth are the methods of our evolution. As you begin to love truly the One that is you, you naturally notice the love that is me. Love is not an end, it is the beginning. There is no end to Agape, for the One that you are is infinite.
Love yourself and set free the bonds of ownership and duty that bind your relationships. Love cannot be owned and it is not exclusive. It is a force.
Love is a fierce knowing of truth; an acceptance of every dark and wonderful, passionate and violent, hideous and exquisite facet of life.
To experience Agape is a fearless act. There is nothing that cannot be said or done or looked at. It is acceptance without judgment. You are here because you are a fellow Master. If there is anyone who can pull off Agape in this controlled, violent, angry and divisive world – it is you. You were chosen to do this. You have all that is required.
This Quest is not for the feint of heart. This is the Ultimate Quest. Fearlessly look into the eyes of all life that is before you and love. Whatever it takes to unconditionally honor – give it willingly.
There is no loss in love. You have enough for me and the rest of us as well. Contrary to what you’ve been told, love multiplies as it is shared, exponentially.
If we just practice acceptance, open our eyes and see the love that surrounds us, we would be astounded. We think that it will take so much effort, when in fact our reward will be beyond description.
Agape is freedom; our gift to the world comes from our very own heart. See the One that we are and love yourself without reservation. It is a simple, yet revolutionary act.
You are the One we’ve been waiting for.
Thank you for being here. We meet tomorrow, for the conclusion of this Quest.
With so much love,
Hello! Today marks the halfway moment on this Quest. You are “Just as far in as you’ll ever be out.” (Anna Nalick – Breathe)
What does that mean? It means we have a choice. Right now. We can still go either direction, and with equal effort get where we are headed. We know what going back to duality looks like. What will it take to get to Oneness?
To proceed from here on you must be willing to see through the illusion. We have a saying in our house, you have to “buy the rubber suit”; a reference to the old Godzilla movies, where you could actually pick out the zipper on the monster. If you wanted to get the most out of the show, you had to ignore the zipper, and believe the costume.
For us to reach a state of unity we’ll have to remember, with or without a zipper, that this is all a finely tuned performance. I am not my body. I chose her to express and experience a lifetime. She’s been here a few years, has a history and a future. Yet she is not me. I am a light, a force, a unique aspect of Divinity. I chose every moment she experienced. None of those moments define who I am. they were merely scenes in the play of my life. This is the truth for each of us.
In order for us to embrace Oneness, we must remember there is a rubber suit and notice always the light beneath. Life demands that we play our roles – we are light workers in costume. We look like fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers or orphans. We are privileged and poor, suffering and celebrating, vibrant and ill. We are doctors, lawyers, therapists, plumbers, engineers, scientists, musicians and teachers. This time, in this life, we have picked one, two or a dozen of these outfits to wear; these “rubber suits”.
There is difference between pity and compassion. Have compassion without pity, for pity separates and compassion unites. In this life you may appear to be more fortunate than some others. If that is true, and you are moved to share your abundance, then do so. Always give in a way that honors the recipient without creating a state of being beholden or subservient. The roles we choose are many. Rest assured you have at one time walked in everyone’s shoes, as they have in yours.
Without these shoes we are One. There is no difference – we’ve all come to serve. What are we serving? We are propelling our own evolution – individually and collectively, by playing out our roles. We are serving the ultimate gift – we are offering love. It is what emanates from our very pores and right through these shoes and rubber suits.
When you engage with another who appears to be in need, you have been gifted. He or she is shining a light on a part of you that you need to see – whether it be compassion or indifference; their presence has called it forth. There is no right or wrong, there is only experience.
From here on in, in order to proceed towards Oneness, we’ll have to remember the “rubber suit” and honor the light within. Every time.
If we can get there, as often as possible, our travelling will be easy. Then Oneness will be all that we see, and our path will be brilliantly lit with the lights of our seven billion souls.
We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
Thank you. It is an honor to be here.
As we begin our third day, it becomes important that we look at all of the relationships currently in our lives; our physical, daily life contacts. You do not exist in isolation. Even if you live alone, you have a mail carrier, a grocer and a landlord. You have a job and work mates. Each of these counts.
It is never true that you can see yourself as One with some of us, but not with others of us. One is a singular mindset. It sort of blows out of the water words like superior, prejudice, privileged, bigotry and segregation. This is not to say those thoughts don’t exist, they do, yet in the face of One, they become illusion. Can I declare with a straight face that one finger is better than another? Better in what way? All are necessary to the function of the hand. I will admit that my ring finger surpasses my thumb when it comes to wearing certain jewelry, yet I would mourn equally the loss of either.
We are here for different purposes. We have incarnated to evolve and in this year, 2012, we have a ticket on the fast train to enlightenment. Our beginnings and paths differ, but not our goal.
So, what does Oneness look like in a sea of faces and bodies and nations and religions? It looks like love. It means no one is dismissed as irrelevant; old or young, patriot or anarchist, Muslim or Jew, gay or straight, black or white, yellow or red, Republican or Democrat, off-world or on-world. “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.” (Lilo & Stitch, 2002)
As we contemplate Oneness, start at home. We are One. All of us, together, speak a singular voice. When you hear someone that irritates, frustrates, offends or annoys you, resist the urge to correct or ignore or dismiss. Breathe. It’s all you and all okay. These are not lesser versions of Oneness, and they are not wrong, they are merely alternate expressions of humanity. Each expression is divine.
We are One unique fabric called Man. Our richness and texture is expressed in our diversity. We are 7 billion+ threads – woven together with a Master’s touch. Relish the One that we are. You can see it everywhere, your mirror, your family, your street, your town, and our world.
Start local, real local. Appreciate each component of you, and then move out to your community. “Nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten”
Without any condition at all, I love you. You are the physical manifestation of One’s thought; a perfect intention, every detail a miracle. Your light illuminates our home; this planet is a beacon of love. See your reflection everywhere you look, it is – and you are gorgeous!
You are the One we’ve been waiting for.
See you tomorrow,
Welcome to our second day! With a full heart, for all the love found here, let’s begin.
It is not true, not ever, that you are alone. Now, you may feel alone and look lonely, yet this is part of the illusion. The illusion of separation has been so powerfully magnified, we have even imagined isolation. If only you could step way back and see the magnificent being that is you, surrounded by the rest of us, you would know for certain this could never be true. We are One.
You’ve been given this body, these eyes and heart to explore in tangible, physical ways what it is to love. To love in human form is an honor. Not every being has had this opportunity. You do. The physical world you inhabit is exquisite. Your eyes behold each finger, toe and body part, while sensing each gentle breeze, hot shower and passionate embrace. Your nose smells home cooked food today and memories fill your mind of another time and meal. Your senses are inundated 24/7 while your heart beats out “Love-Love-Love-Love”.
To make sense of it all is a challenge. You look on the scale and see a few more pounds or hear your mate or child or parent complain and you imagine yourself imperfect. This is illusion and deep within you sense the truth. All the while, your heart is beating “Love-Love-Love-Love”.
The din of society, government, anguish and fear threatens to drown out the truth of your heart. You heart will not be silenced. As long as you are here in the physical, it will continue, synchronized with mine and everyone else’s; “Love-Love-Love-Love”.
To love is a privilege. One such as you only comes around once. There is no other who walks in your shoes. Only you understand what resides in your heart and propels your life. This is good news. It means, my fellow human, that there is no one who is better equipped to love you than yourself. For regardless of relationship, you will always be the closest friend you have. Love yourself.
Be careful and tender; listen and allow. There is a reason for every emotion, thought, word and deed. You would not waste your time here in fruitless pursuits. You are a component of divinity, an integral part of the fabric of humanity. We are not complete without your particular thread.
Be patient with yourself. Treat yourself as you would an honored guest – you are. Here now to help us all, you have arrived right on time and with all you need. Trust yourself, love yourself and be yourself. You are uniquely suited to do so!
I am thrilled to take this Quest with One such as you. Thank you for showing the way.
You are the One we’ve been waiting for!
See you tomorrow,
The Voice of One
(Today's blog is the beginning of our 18th Love Quest. These notes will continue for seven days)
We begin today our 18th Quest!
We are in a fast moving, spectacular time in our lives and in the life of our planet. With each passing day, we become more aware of our unity. We are inextricably entangled, creating and experiencing the results of our work simultaneously. As time speeds up, it becomes more and more challenging to separate out where things start and where they end.
We are on this Quest to explore Agape. Unconditional self love takes on a much larger scope when Oneness is part of your self definition. We are indeed the same stuff. This week will be about what that looks like in our every day.
Quantum physicists speak of entanglement. Entanglement IS the dream. We are walking and talking, loving and living in a mutually agreed upon reality. I exist on a back drop of what you believe you see around me. I most likely agree with your perception.
As we wake up, our consciousness expands to include other beings, dimensions, truths and possibilities. We see things we never noticed before. We are gradually realizing our world works much differently than we were taught.
We are One. What does that mean? It means that in some intricate and beautiful way, we are connected. To illustrate, imagine being on the other end of my stick, sort of like a see-saw. When I sit down, you can’t help but be affected. You feel my reaction, and immediately I feel yours – up, down, up, down. In the same sense, you sense my pain, my joy, my love and my anger. You have to. This is how life works. We are One organism, opposite ends of the same stick.
We are becoming aware now of the power we hold. It has been deliberately manipulated so that we’d compete with and fight and fear each other. We are not each others enemy. We are connected, very literally. To perpetrate anger at another being only intensifies pain, illness, war and hatred. The results of each are internalized in all of us. No one escapes. We are One.
When you look in the mirror today, with gentle smiling eyes, say hello to the world. Love who you see standing there. He is a child of God. She is walking divinity.
As we inch towards Agape, we will alter our world. That smile and gentle encouragement is felt by every bit of life in existence. We have access now to this truth. With help from many places and races, our minds and hearts are opening up.
As we individually love, it all changes. Generosity and compassion become the order of the day. Empowerment insists on it.
Love yourself and we will be blessed exponentially. We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.
See you tomorrow,
We are swimming in a sea of shoulds. The list of what we must do in order to ascend is almost as long as our 3D list. These 3D lists were created by those who would keep you so busy being you, that you’d lose the very essence of your being. It would appear that we’ve traded one list for another. While it is true that there are things that inhibit spiritual growth and others that propel it; none of them exist outside of you.
What this means is that any activity can become a sacred activity. It is the state and intent of our heart that determines our experience. In much the same way that you can manipulate the body to orgasm, you can orchestrate the body to spiritual heights utilizing certain practices. There is a difference however in the depth of orgasm as well as the radiance of spiritual light that you reach. That difference would be determined by the heart. This is your most powerful organ.
In fact, the heart becomes critical not only to the fact of life (if it beats you have life and if it doesn’t, you don’t), but also to the quality of the very life that you have. Where the heart is involved there is a deeper level of intensity, a richness of sensation and completeness. Satisfaction and sustained effects are only possible in any lasting way, through the heart.
You have all you need for bliss. Just love. Once you find and accept the divinity that you are, your every waking moment will emulate Agape.
To achieve bliss is not possible in isolation. We are One. The One that you are, is evidenced everywhere. You cannot be alone.
There is no sea of shoulds, there are oceans of possibilities. What you will never know is the path of another soul. It is not possible to know the motivation of another; it is only possible to discern your own truth. For truth is something that you feel. It has a frequency all its own. You recognize its vibration. It is felt deeply and resonates throughout your being.
Self love brings us to a point of knowing. It becomes the salve to heal all wounds. Once you understand that all pain is self-inflicted, you can heal.
We are here to transform a population. My evolution is yours as well; we are One. Our method is self-transformation. We are on the path of Unity; the road of the pure of heart. This is the place we each are headed.
What I call love and another terms divinity are in fact one and the same. Both are the recognition of an inner God. This is the ultimate destination no matter the course chosen. It is the discovery that love, when felt for every nuance of you, is the truth dwelling in every flicker of light and life you encounter. It begins and ends there, at your core, your heart, your divine self.
“You are no longer interested in being (INSERT YOUR NAME HERE); you are interested in being the physical expression of divinity.” *
This is the ultimate truth, your purpose; it is completely attainable – now.
You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
Your body is hanging on. It desperately wants you here. You have to let go. Let go – everything you’re hanging on to because of fear, or are doing a certain way because of fear, or not doing at all because of fear – is time now to take care of. This is the end of duality. You have chosen this. You have confirmation many places – here, your body, an assortment of scribes and teachers. All of these sources are telling you:
- You have chosen this
- You are changing
- No one else knows how it’s going to go because you are creating how it’s going right now
You have to let go. You have to let go. YOU HAVE TO LET GO. It is time.
No longer do these very dense beliefs hold any fascination. You understand now the fragile nature of this dream. It’s been constructed, intentionally, by those who understood how it worked. For hundreds of years the plan has been laid and carried out. They utilized the power of emotion and set about to create a world of beings willing to give everything up for a cause. It didn’t matter the foundation, so several were chosen:
Our minds have been filled with words and images, all of them resulting in blind obedience, subservience, greed, violence and separation. We have been taught to ignore our inner calling.
Today though, it is more like our inner voice has a microphone! Shouting above the mainstream din are words of love, power, peace and unity. We’ve not heard this volume before and our bodies and minds are wrenched back and forth with the noise. The competing vibrations threaten to pull us apart, or so it seems.
Should we listen to the side that is familiar? “Obey” “Be afraid” “Send us your money” “Hate this human” “Fight” Should instead, we follow this other voice? “You and I are the same” “We are One” “Love is the answer” “Above all, love yourself” Which is right? Which is wrong? How do we discern? Help!!!
No one has a twelve step program for this one. This dimension is an addiction that’s never been released, until today. We are writing the steps right now. We are not doing so without help. We have teachers with processes and meditations, groups and seminars, books and workshops, videos and diets. If there was ever a time to utilize them, it is now. There is wisdom all around.
It comes from the core of us. We are each others teachers. We have come to show the way.
If you feel drawn to a particular web site, channel or conference – go there. It does not mean the others are wrong; there is truth in every creation. Some days a certain passage may sound brilliant and be just what you needed. While other days it would hold no relevance. Such is the nature of the times we are in.
Each day is a new adventure. I feel either ten, twenty, fifty or eighty years old in alternating moments. I cook when I feel loss or anxiety. Yesterday I got some unexpected news that set me back. It was a huge “IT IS TIME TO LET GO” message. This happened as I was beginning to do some preserving. Today we have a zillion jars of fruit preserves. Washing, coring, cutting, and cooking apples were yesterday’s therapeutic processes. Now I guess that’s not a bad choice, yet I wonder if I would have enjoyed the whole day a bit more if it included flexibility. I’m hanging on with an iron grip.
It’s time for some specific guidelines. I suspect unexpected news will come fast and furious these next three months. Perhaps, because we are used to naming things and following rules, we need to invent the list for our “3D ANONYMOUS”.
Here is the first rule: 1. Let go.
When surprised, frightened or angry, let it go. Today it’s a rigid belief – tomorrow it’ll be an entire dimension. This is good practice. Inelia Benz (ascension101.com) has some wonderful exercises that work for me, (perhaps I should have remembered this yesterday… ;). Yet it doesn’t matter how you do it, it matters that you do it. Let go.
I don’t know precisely what Ascension looks like, yet I do know that I’ll be moving from one frequency to the next. Like tuning in to an FM station on my radio, I have to let go of whatever happens to be playing on AM. Experience tells me that my FM station has fewer commercials and a richer sound; altogether a better experience. I am betting 5D will be much the same. In fact, I’m creating it to be.
Step 1. Let go. We have come to embrace our dreams. We are here to create the manifestation of truth – love. This is who we are.
We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
Our greatest and darkest moments are now readily available. It is a time of choosing. We are entering a period when all will be laid before us. The best of us. The not so stellar.
Assistance is available within. We know when a thought, word or action does not coincide with the opinion of our greater self, by how we feel when it shows up. If it feels bad then it is not in concert with your plan before you got here.
It is simple to recognize yet not easy to analyze. Last night I received what I perceived to be a direct attack. I felt it immediately. Heat ran through my body and fear showed up; sandwiched between anger and blame. It was sort of shocking. I’ve spent most of the last twelve hours wrestling with it. I’m okay now, and I know what happened. The words in the attack did not cause the emotion. It was my immediate thoughts/reactions that brought it on. They went like this: “This is wrong!” “I must not be wanted.” “I should stop all this blogging.” “They don’t know what they are talking about.”
These very human feelings are merely knee-jerk and reactive. They do not embody love or unity. They are in fact divisive and very 3 dimensional. They are not where I choose to stay.
I choose to be inclusive, in a place where nothing is taken personally. In fact, words spoken by any of us are merely us talking to ourselves. Nothing is personal. I yell at my kids because I’m having a bad day. I react to a verbal attack because I am feeling insecure. This may not make me enjoy the behavior of my children or the words of my “attacker” any more, but it sure tells me what I can do to change it.
I can love myself. Its okay that I lashed out, this is earth. I am not defined solely by my reactions. I am love. As a being of light it is my intent to express my unique signature wherever I am. That’s what we are doing here. Source is experiencing itself through every thought, word and deed.
That makes all actions okay. None are “wrong”. There is a push now to recognize which choice coincides with our core truth and which veers from it. This is an internal push. Although I can’t speak for everyone, I suspect it is universal.
We are searching for our inner voice. Once discovered, we only need to pay attention. As we are challenged with conflict and upset, this could feel really bad. Once we recognize the feeling we can use it as a directional arrow – don’t go there.
What feels good does so because in that moment you are expressing truth. You are loving yourself without reservation. Regardless of what brings it on, remember how it feels. It is a statement of your divine truth. It is the whispering of Agape. When you hear it, you remember who you are.
You are the one you’ve been waiting for.
Today begins the second half of this Quest.
The path to Agape will take us to Oneness. Self love is love of the One that you are. The One that you are is a piece of divinity. We are connected. We spring from Source, and we have never let go. So we are moving in a circle, finding our way home, returning to the beginning, which is One.
The path to Oneness is Agape. Do you see how this works? Absolute love for you yields Universal Unconditional Love. There are in fact no separators between you and us. Once you accept yourself completely, we all start to look a whole lot better!
It is not that you tolerate or overlook our faults. It’s not that you would have made every choice in the same way that we did. It’s not that you even want to spend a great deal of time with us. It’s that you understand at a very deep level that we are alternate versions of you. Loving you means, by definition, that you love the rest of us.
It’s that easy and that challenging. Our world is a hologram. The best science today doesn’t know precisely how it works, yet quantum physics tells us what’s in our minds is projected out to become what’s in our world. What you think about yourself is what you will see in everyone else.
Fill your head with love and what will happen to your life will astound you. Imagine a world filled with people who loved themselves. This is what we are here for; to create and participate in that world.
We’ve been practicing for such a long time – trying out a little agape here and some unconditional love there. Never sure when the show was set to begin, we fell back often to self hatred. There have been so many reasons! Our bodies, our jobs, our grades, our past and our relationships each offer plenty of opportunity for failure, disappointment and blame.
Well its show time. We’ve had our dress rehearsal. We know our lines and we know how this story ends. This curtain will close on a myriad of wonderful depictions of unity. We’ve been singing songs of love and writing movies of success forever – now it’s time to sing them in our everyday and watch them play out on our streets. We’ve been telling ourselves our own story – we just never knew it was real.
It is real. Most of what we’ve been force fed is the lie. You have no enemies. God has no favorites. There are no mistakes. Judgment is an archaic idea that creates fear and diminishes your power. It is not possible to hold judgment while loving absolutely.
Your power resides in your love. This strength is yours right now. Call it forth. This light is what you are. Feel it rise up and watch the faces of your loved ones light up when you shine it upon them.
This is what you’ve come for; to love. Once you love yourself, the entire world is your Beloved.
We are One. One spark, here now to get this whole place lit up! Our light has been hidden beneath shame and sadness, fear and debt, servitude and low self esteem. No one has been able to convince you of your greatness – until now.
We know now that to claim our perfection is not arrogance, but truth. We are components of the One; self-love is the key to Ascension – Ascension for all of us.
We are the One we are waiting for.
It is an honor to share this time with you.
See you tomorrow,
