To laugh, is to release all the stress you have been carrying. You could have been carrying it for along time. Yet in just a few moments the stress can disappear, with a laugh coming from the belly which originates in the heart.
Laughter is “God,” for we are born from the One Source, and the Source is Pure Existence, and Pure Consciousness, but more so, Pure Bliss, Joy, and Laughter! When we are most happy, we just laugh and laugh and with laughter we express the inner purity of our essential blissful nature.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. –Anaiis Nin. . One day, you will waken and be so focused upon your greater good, that anything other than, shall fade off into the distance.
Guest Starring co-author Charles White, Special Appearance by Aaron T. Huss . The Erymanthian Boar is indeed delicious! Gilbert and Aaron are a great hit with the crowd on Mount Olympus. Aaron informs us that he must leave to fulfill one of his many creative, visionary and decision-making responsibilities. It turns out that Gilbert also has other commitments. Aaron fades from view, and I seize the opportunity to ask Gilbert a few more questions whilst his chariot is being prepared.
I believe there is no such thing as THE TRUTH. Instead, I believe that each of us is a unique being on our own spiritual journey and the collection of beliefs we hold at any given time is our personal truth – that which makes sense to us based upon what we’ve learned and experienced to that point. There is always a higher, more empowering truth to reach for.
Would you to know how I am changing my life happening TO me to CREATING it? Choosing my life in 10 second increments. Every choice creates something. I can choose towards the future I would like to create. That’s how.
I like to organize things. Okay, as an organizer I’m borderline compulsive. When I shop for jeans and the sizes are mixed up on the rack, I have to put them in order (you’re welcome, Walmart). Planning ahead is also part of my organizer syndrome. That includes planning trips in detail, even short ones. A few years ago I planned the exact route I’d take to run an errand so that I’d get back to work on time. But on that excursion something amazing happened that I could never have planned or even imagined.
In this time of digital sharing, there are all sorts of templates available for all of our work, if we choose to use them. This is particularly beneficial if we are in an area of work where our job is a matter of filling in the blanks and securing specific information about a group of clients. That, however does not always fit the modality of what we need if we are working on a larger project that includes others to help achieve our goals. For those times, we need a plan.
So long as we are living and working in society, it will be necessary to wear the mask that society wants to see. But we need to remember always that our spiritual quest is an inner journey. How can we maintain constant awareness of our spiritual journey while also knowing when to wear our mask of practicality?
The comedy and tragedy masks are symbols of theatre people world-wide and date back farther than our memories can even conceive. The idea of existing behind a mask is something actors are applauded for time and time again. Is this such a bad thing?
A written financial plan is critical in today’s ever changing landscape. . I’ve heard it said that “the only constant is change.” .
It’s clear that our world changes very quickly in the technology age. .
At some point, you will find your life in transition, whether it be a change you plan for, dream about or something that hits you right out of the blue. Change can be unsettling financially. A written financial plan based on current realities will help you make informed choices when faced with change.
I’ve been used as a mask on numerous occasions. It’s been cathartic and stifling on different occasions. I was not my true me or higher self. Other human beings projected their needs and wants onto me. I was their mask. .
As a young girl Marie created a “Silent Mask”whether used at school or home. She quickly learned if a teacher or her father was angry with her to be quiet. She got to be a real expert at being silent which further strengthened her “Green Mask.” Her “Silent Mask” was light grey with a closed mouth. It was in this state Marie gained tremendous solace through communication with animals. Animals understood her.
Worzel Gummidge is a character in a late 1970’s British children’s program, a walking, talking scarecrow who had 3 different heads for different occasions. .
How many heads or masks do you have? Are they all authentically you? .
And what is the difference between a head and a mask? .
Think about it, really think about it; are you “different” depending on who you are with? .
Do you feel there are aspects of yourself that you should keep hidden?
We need a certain sense of direction to assist in reaching our life goals. In order to accomplish our desires, a plan is necessary. I think of a plan being like the tiller of a sailboat. Without one, the boat is subject to the forces of nature without any direction. The tiller allows to steer through the water to wherever we seek to go. Otherwise we drift aimlessly on the water.
Every day of our lives, we exchange energy with another person in some form or another, whether it be the waitress, the bank clerk, the gas station attendant, our partner, our kids or our colleagues. In all of these interactions we probably say the words, “Thank you” at least a dozen times a day. But have we ever taken the time to really understand the essence of the words, “Thank you?”
A mask is something you hide behind. Something that distracts you from reality. .
When I think of a mask, the Masked Balls of Vienna, appears as a most beautiful vision of twirling partners dancing the Strauss waltzes. The masks are such elaborate pieces of artwork. They were worn by the upper classes and nobility along with lavish costumes. Eventually, the common people of the era were invited but the dress code still stood, a mask, tail coats and extravagant gowns.
Although the Hellenic influences of my childhood were not in the forefront of my training and education as a deep-trance medium for ‘the Work’, which was focused primarily on the here and now, my affinity for the Xotika: Devas, Nature Spirits and Elementals, was highly valued and I was soon considered an expert on such matters by those in our circle.
