As the response of my Brother Dave so modestly was given as a comment to my previous letter I’d like to share it here with all of you since it is so much written to the point and gained so much delight of mine when reading it. I do hope Brother Dave will not mind if seeing it as a post of mine – it is also some way of mine to honor his views and showing also my gratitude to him.
Enjoy these sage passages like I did !
With compassionate and unconditional Love as always
i have never read the works of Dr. Joseph Murphy. However while still in the US Navy, back in the 1970′s, I was deployed for a short time to a remote Navy Air Station called Adak Alaska, located in the Aleutian Islands. It was there at the Naval Air Station that I had what was perhaps my first great “spiritual” breakthrough. It was there that I was introduced to the works of the Edgar Cayce, and found my life forever changed. Suddenly the orthodoxy that I had been indoctrinated with for all of my early years just fell away, and things I had always known within, suddenly made sense. In an odd synchronicity, I found other kindred spiritual souls in the military, including my unit’s “intelligence officer”. Who would have ever expected that? This began then my “opening up” to all the thoughts that had been forbidden me from my early upbringing. Before this time I had already been questioning the belief systems I had been raised with, but had lacked any sense of direction. So it was that the Cayce readings gave me direction and allowed me to expand my spiritual search to ever greater realms and philosophies.
These times also remind me of the illusionary world that we live in. As we look about, our world, our conscious minds seem to see much chaos, anger, confusion and disruption. But if we learn to see with our spiritual minds and beings, we can pierce the veils of illusion and see then the many, many powerful threads of spiritual love and awareness that interweave the illusions and slowly but persistently reshape them. Even in places we would least expect them, there are individuals and spiritual leaders who are actively holding the space for humanities growth and ascension. What is not obvious to the conscious mind is the tremendous growth that has already occurred behind the scenes.
I believe strongly what we should not do is give strength to the illusions, by seeing them as conflict. For that very word, carries a great disruptive energy. As you dreamed before and felt in your life, we need to leave behind us the “battle” and focus on the energies of our being in balance with all that is. Balance is not a middle point between light and dark, good and evil or any other illusion of oppositions. Balance is when we just allow our energies of love to flow without judgement or fear. There is no conflict, no difficulty, only a moving with the energies of the universe.
For a few days, I felt conflicted, confused, battered, tired, worn out, even sad. But then today I feel free, the energy flows and there is no conflict of any kind. What I notice most of all is that within myself, the days of illusion, days of difficulty and conflict, come less often and last for shorter and shorter times (as humanity perceives time) and the days of balance, joy, love and flowing freely with universe come more frequently and last longer. But more importantly the transitions are less and less noticeable, and more and more natural.
I still find a challenge in releasing some preconceptions and in letting go of “the material details” of life. Yet, each day I feel within my spirit, more of that freedom that joy that we all shared, before our incarnations into material (3D) experience. Likewise while I remember more of the time before, I worry less of the moment that is now. I know that this experience is but a moment in the greater story of our infinite journeys. A moment that we chose. Our challenge then, if anything is to enjoy the moment. Not the illusions that sprang out of it, but the moment, the now of being in this experience. And to do this every moment, knowing that we are already free and living in the infinite universe, now. The time is always now. It is not something we wait for, or hope for, but something we live, NOW. And each and every soul has their NOW. But when we live our NOW, we help others to live their NOW. We are all interconnected. We do not need to change the world, only to change ourselves, and the world will change with us.
