DECEMBER 2014: Love from Above

"In the century now dawning, spirituality, visionary consciousness, and the ability to build and mend human relationships will be more important for the fate and safety of this nation than our capacity to forcefully subdue an enemy. Creating the world we want is a much more subtle but more powerful mode of operation than destroying the one we don't want." - Marianne Williamson

Love from above, and the realization that there are higher forms and expressions of love than what we may be able to imagine or interpret is one of the main keys to opening the door to a relationship with our Higher Selves. So often we do not have the eyes to see higher love, and therefore we cannot experience our Higher Self. Because true love does not just entail rainbows and butterflies... and a non-stop stream of yesses. True love often will say no, just as easily as it will say yes. But Love from above always has a bigger yes... and that bigger yes is always in service to the greater work of connecting us with our own soul.

Love from above is multi-tierd. To over simplify right within our own energy field and metaphysical structure, to whatever extent we can hear them is what some might call Mother/Father God. We might also think of them as our divine parents... our own inner Divine Feminine and Masculine principle. One thing is for sure... just as surely as a parent might be in a position to draw limits, so too will the Mother/Father God within. One could say that our own parents or parental figures in general are outwardly appearing manifestations of this inner parental system. These "parents" show us what it looks like to impose limits on our behavior, not merely for the sake of saying no... but to foster in us the ability to listen to another voice... and ultimately allow us to connect with and listen to the Light of our own Soul or our Higher Self... so that we can get our bigger yes. This is what allows us to form our boundaries and individuated selves from a place of love.

As we integrate these two inner parents, a synergy happens... and a child is created, which is not just a simple combination or compromise of the two... but a unique individual that was synthesized from this mutual respect of these two divine lovers. For this is what allows us all to become more whole brained functioning, and able to synthesis information in a way that is more holistic, able to take into consideration the bigger picture... able to delay gratification... able to say no or yes... whatever is most appropriate at the time... able to connect with our Higher Self... and our own Soul. In other words, this is a heirarchy, and just as in real life... there is no child without parents... so too, is it impossible to connect and reveal the soul without establishing communication and a working relationship between the Mother/Father God within.

Quite simply this is the main thrust of the Christmas story. May your find your relationship with your inner divine feminine and masculine growing ever closer and clearer. May you learn to re-parent yourself. and allow yourself the ability to begin to develop the Light of your own soul... for that is the babe being born within you as you become that Love from Above.
Quote Garden...
Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth." Say not, "I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path." For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals. ~Kahlil Gibran

We must not tamper with the organic motion of the soul. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why do you hasten to remove anything which hurts your eye, while if something affects your soul you postpone the cure until next year? ~Horace

Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don't see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself. - Marianne Williamson
