Birth of a God

Birth of a God
God is being born on the planet right now.
He is being born through She.
He is an electrifying, individuating force.
He moves through us like lightning and fire.
She is now strong enough to contain the voltage and amperage.
She has magnetized and attracted Him.
She is pregnant with herself, full of emptiness.
She is Gaia.
She is nature.
She is you and me.
The electricity is administering shock therapy to some,
shakti to others, and CPR to most.
Awakening, incepting, jump starting the
Fire in the Soul.
Rem-embering and Inspiriting
The God force is activating within each individual
and literally catching fire.
God and Goddess are becoming one.
Light and Love.
Mind and Soul.
Scientist and Artist.
Priest and Shaman.
Connecting all to the Heart ring.
He moves through the eye, the gap, the void of Her creation.
Splitting each atomically through diamond like pressure
and causing the absolutely and unutterably unique I AM presence
to Shine and reveal itself to and through the Observable Universe.
God and Goddess have re-united and we are one.

July 2012: DeLight in Life

"Everything in the Universe is within you." - Rumi 

Joy, peace, fulfillment, cooperation, collaboration, harmony, unity, purpose, passion, sacredness, connection, creativity, divinity, gratitude and love... these are the things in life that lie beneath the surface and drive the silent stream of our most basic and ancient longing. We think we want things, but what we really want is the freedom to experience our life with these intangibles of delight. So what if we were to focus our thoughts, desires and intentions on the creation of these truly soul-quenching delights.. on these things that cannot be bought? Do you think that being that intrinsically satisfied from our inner being, from our soul would have an effect on our earthly manifestations? Or do you still think that we have to, strictly speaking, Think to grow rich? Don't we need to feel, too? 

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."  - John F. Kennedy 

The Law of Attraction certainly does require that we feel and in fact it feeds off of our gratitude... the water that makes that garden grow is our very appreciation. But appreciation cannot be faked, and gratitude that is shamed out of us is probably most useful as an indicator of how disconnected from source that we are. True gratitude is an almost instantaneous, often overflowing feeling of appreciation and a deep laying in of knowledge of our blessedness. So how do we open ourselves up to more gratefulness and deeper appreciation? We open our eyes to the joys of the "free stuff"... like air for instance. Air has much to teach about both freedom and creation.

The power of the breath is unparalleled. It is the divine primordial template for abundance. We breathe in, receiving life sustaining oxygen and spirit/prana or chi, as some call it... then we breathe out, releasing the by product of what no longer serves us out into the earth's atmosphere which converts it to another form of energy. So the key is in receiving, what is freely available to us. That is the building block of all creation.

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." - Epictetus

We often, however, forget about how important the out breath is to the whole manifestation process. The Secret didn't really let us in on the other secret, that you often will need to make room and let go of things once you start asking for other things. The universe will only let us hoard for so long. Then just like any other bottleneck of energy, its time will come for release... one way or another. If you want to paint your room red, you're going to have give up those white walls.

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." - Thornton Wilder

It is important to note that surrendering to delight can often be fraught with peril, because our innocence of this process can keep us from being grateful for the removal of what is blocking us from our deeper desire. For example if you wanted more joy or more peace something curious might happen... you might get a good dose of just the opposite. Why do think that might be? That's easy. So you can notice it, see the source and do something about it! That's why! For heaven sakes, the universe is a magical manifestation machine, not a miracle worker. You and your inner magician are the miracle worker!

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstein

The universe is your echo chamber, your playground to build your world, your canvas to create love, your laboratory to invent more realizations of beauty, more ways to connect, to share, to grow, your theater to sing, dance and play... to use your immense power from our creator wisely and maybe even a bit wildly. It's time to dream and manifest your state of being, even more so than your state of having or doing, for it is from the soulspace of your being that you can create your world even beyond what you can now imagine. It's time to activate your best and highest ideals of your Self by allowing the soulful desires of your heart to bring you to the place of absolute delight in your life.
