Clipped-Wing Light Beings ~ Value of Discomfort
Video Journal Written Journal
I am, I feel so honored to have these journals flow through me. Perhaps in coming centuries people will be more aware of the alchemy that is possible through simple writing – when you are in Heart. It is such a magic. Do you ever wonder why that is? I know many of you have started or continue to journal. I know it will prove itself to you, even guide you within, guide you into fuller and fuller awakening. It is amazing. I have a sense of a possible “ why ” - which has to do with who we are . This, more than anything, is what has been robbed from the people alive today – and for recent centuries. We have had stripped from us the awareness that we are divine . We've been given idols and heroes to look up to and ascribe greatness to – with never a hint that we have our own greatness, within. Well, it is not exactly our own. In some mystical way it is well beyond that, for remember, we have had our identify falsified . So when we say “our own” - no, it does not mean that – but rather far greater than that. It is most urgent that, before we explore anything, any idea or subject at all, that we first be reminded or remind self of Who we are – that we are Source . Unless we start from there, we will
be tempted to play it small – just as we have been taught. By belief in the small self, the ego, the false identity, we clip our own wings . We trim our Light down to a candle flame. Well, my friends, we are a Sun – we are the brilliance – and the darkness – of Source . At the very least, we are divine . So let us all center down deep within before we go on. Get in touch with the real Self – then let us take the journal journey, together, ever centered in Heart. The magic of the journals is the magic of us – of the true Self . In these days of the clipped-wing Light Beings, Higher Self must get creative to put in an appearance on the 3D stage. It need not always remain this way – but for now it seems to be that, as long as we hold off our majesty at such distance – adopting the lesser self in its place – that our divine nature comes through when we journal. Journaling is not carried out from the perspective of mind – it is very much a Heart thing when I speak of it. I know that other sorts of journaling are possible and honorable, too, it's just that they are not my way , which is to always go deep . Since the mind cannot convey me to such depths, my joy is to go deeper within. This Heart that I Am is the same Heart that all are – for we are ultimately One. While this is something that most people don't encounter in any one lifetime, yet it is accessible , if only they knew. Not only have we been suited up in this lesser self of the ego or mind for this life, but all traces of anything deeper being possible have been all but erased from both history and our society, which is run in a very small way. So I come to remind you – you are Source , my friend – you are us – you are me. Please notice that “me,” turned up-side-down is “we.” I share this with you to help you get the fragrance of our overall oneness . You need not experience it directly to know it exists – or to suspect that it does. Yet the knowing – just knowing that it exists – opens a new portal that for many hasn't been opened before. Many think, in their mind-centric way, that all this talk of oneness is just allegory , meant to represent an idea or a philosophy – rather than something more real than that false identity they don't
know they wear. Well, it is not. It is real beyond anything 3D can deliver up – including those false identities. Yet it is not necessary to experience this just yet – or even in this life. I mention it because you already have – many, many times. You carry the records of all of your lifetimes in the body you work with, there. The moment you leave a body in its death you come once again into our oneness – and then you know. It's time and past time we quit thinking of self as our body or as our mind . That's rather like saying you are your suit of clothing – or your car. It's just about as ridiculous, too – yet it takes getting rid of some old beliefs before we begin to really see this. You'll know you have truly seen or experienced it when you have your first great laugh – at your expense – for ever having believed you could be that. So stay in Heart with me. Your great Wisdom is to be accessed there. No, it doesn't abide there – for Heart, itself, is not a place. It's more like a portal – a portal into the All That Is, That Was, and That Ever Shall Be – into the beyond, and even beyond that. That doesn't matter, though – just keep centering down in your chest. It helps keep you in contact with everything deep. So why is it that simple paper and pencil, that journaling can be so magical ? How can it manage to take us to the heights as it does, and to the depths, too? Why is it like that? Well, you've heard of projection , right? That's where you take what's within you and project it out on what you see. Perhaps the journal helps us do a bit of that. One thing I do feel is that we connect with our divine reality – our deep inner nature and being – via the journal . As long as you follow a few quite simple guidelines you're just about guaranteed to be successful at it. Yet these are strange guideline s, for they are of Heart, and Heart is a “place” like no other on earth, or even in 3D. Everything is different in Heart. What is right-side-up in 3D is upside-down when you go within. All the rules have been changed , you'll soon discover. Nothing remains quite the same. So the first guideline is to completely drop all expectations of any kind. That's right – we don't journal to get from any point A to
any point B. We don't use the journal for that or for anything. Journaling is an experience – it is a flow, and when you really connect with it, it is a Heart flow. It is divine. So to drop expectations is mandatory, since those are creatures of mind and of thought. They have no place in the Heart. This is a sizable challenge for some when we first start. Why is that? Our life has taught us to use things to seek an advantage of some kind – always trying to best someone or something, to improve in this way or that. Well, best drop all of that right now. It will keep you from connecting as deeply as you might like. Are you feeling this? You will be if you made your way down deeply, within. You'll be moving from thinking to sensing , and there's a huge difference to be discovered between them. Thought abides on the surface of 3D life – that's why it is so linear – it has no choice. Heart, on the other hand, is quite unlimited – literally no limits exist for it. So it's important not to take any of this to thought. If that seems strange to you, just consider that the body's heart actually makes neurotransmitters – brain chemicals. Your Heart can think – even the body's physical heart can do this – and your capital-H Heart all the more. This is Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy in Oz type of unlimited, very strange stuff. I recommend we all plant in our Belief Garden the beautiful plant called Thoughtful Heart . Its fragrance, when it blooms, reminds us that we don't need mind any longer for thought – not on our spiritual journeying. Mind's thought is terribly useful for 3D, but is just not needed here, in the Kingdom of Heart. Instead, we will have mind act as a consultant to Heart, backing it up and supporting us in our journeying there. My journals have shown me how I am reprogramming mind as I go, and I know those of us awakening are all doing this. As we feed mind our newly chosen beliefs to plant in place of the old programmed stuff, it creates a bit of a stir, within. We might get rather uncomfortable on planting a new belief. It may feel awkward – something just not right – for a bit. That's until we notice what's going on. It will generally be because the new belief isn't a compatible planting with some of the old
belief weeds growing there. As a result, those old beliefs surface and argue for their rightful place in the Garden. After all, they say, they've always been there – and they were there first – such stuff as that. This is why we were uncomfortable – we were sensing the jangling of shifting beliefs , inside. It is an absolutely ideal situation, actually. It gives us a fine opportunity to observe and evaluate those prior beliefs – and most often give them the boot, digging them out, so our new belief can flourish in peace. In Heart one of the things we discover is the value of discomfort. Self-observing shows us that discomfort is an excellent tool for our growth. Its presence shows us that something inside needs adjusting – and knowing what is ideal. So many people go through life with vague discomforts and feelings of dis-ease or even depression, yet without ever being able to precisely identify the cause. So for us, discomfort need not last long at all. We take advantage of the fact that this is the realm – 3D – of constant change . The only constant in 3D IS change, so that can work, like everything else – to our advantage. A lot depends on our attitude, our general perspective on life – and on owning that. Though our attitude is something that is our very own – no one can change it for us but us – yet most people have given their power over attitude away . Instead, they blame life, in some way, for what befalls them – and for how they feel about it – not realizing that they have full power over that, if they will but claim it. That's all it takes. An attitude of overall gratitude is a priceless treasure. It will do more to bring enjoyment into life than almost anything else. Our attitudes are largely a product – not of what happens to us – but of our beliefs. There is no thing more powerful in creating your life as it is than your beliefs . They are the structural underpinning of everything else. Just like any other belief, you can also plant attitude flowers in your Interior Garden. Attitude of Gratitude flowers will also bring forth change. At first, when you plant anything new, you may experience some days or weeks of discomfort – of feeling out of
sorts. IF you are self-observant, this discomfort is a great gift. It points you clearly in the most advantageous, the most beneficial direction to go. Taking on new beliefs will cause internal shifts – every time. Some of them may be so minor that you may not even notice the stir – but it will be there. You are changing your overall vibration , too, so it's bound to feel a bit different. You may find things happening, either in your thoughts or relationships or emotions that are surprising. You won't know where they came from or what they mean. It's a very good idea, in addition to a grateful attitude and dropping all expectations, to also empty out while you are at it. Drop all attachment to your previous beliefs and your current ones. Having beliefs is okay, but being attached to them – well, it just gets in the way. It can make things harder – much harder than they need to be. I often speak of the empty cup – of finding the emptiness within. This is what I mean by that – just letting go of all attachment to everything. Let us start with thought, for we've all been raised to be good little thought addicts, as well as good little consumers. We don't need that crap, my friends – and it's time to just see that – clearly – and let it go. You can't release what you haven't yet seen, however. A broad, general release statement isn't as powerful as it might sound. This may be largely due to how small the conscious mind is in relation to the rest – about 5%. Yet with this 5% people have proposed to rule their life. We can look around to see those results. While it may be obvious, yet we don't often see what's obvious, that beliefs are largely subconscious things. They are buried down deeper than our conscious mind has an access pass, so it isn't the best tool for the job of changing beliefs. It helps with the work, with the planting of new beliefs, but it can't tell you what else your Belief Garden is growing for you. Since you can't release what you're not aware of, it will take some self-observing and centering to begin to see what beliefs you've been programmed with. Just your constant watchful attitude is the
gem that helps you spot what's going on in the deeper layers of your being. As long as you remain in Heart, you'll be able to view those deeper layers. This won't be possible from the level of conscious mind. Once seen, you enter the choice point – that critical spot or phase where you get to decide, stay or go, keep or discard. Only then can your desire to be free of certain things bear fruit, as opposed to that broad, general desire to improve that's too unfocused to produce this success. This is very much you, in process of taking your power back. With every decision you make from Heart on any sort of belief, you're re-empowering the self. Now, finally, instead of all of that programming, over which you had not choice in childhood, you get to choose what your life shall be like. In choosing your beliefs that's basically what you're doing – sculpting your life. While the changes won't necessarily appear overnight, they will come. Be sure not to look for them, though – not to hold any expectations of any kind. If you do, then you slip back into the mental rut of doing this to get that – of using things instead of experiencing them. That's second-hand living – that's not Life. Endless blessings be yours, Namaste ~♥~
