Miracles

Miracles do not happen in contradiction to nature, but only in contradiction to that which is known to us in nature.

 

– St. Augustine

Time to Allow

From my perspective, it has become apparent that it is time for some people to decide who they are. Are you someone who allows or are you someone that resists, in the face of the unknown?

Are you someone who can see the beauty in the sharing of honest experiences? Experiences and personal truths that are made up of spiritual, paranormal and unusual events…these things being shared, even at the risk of ridicule?

Or, are you someone who chooses to ridicule the sharer, ultimately because you fear that others having these experiences may mean that the world is in fact changing.

But it is not your world, it is their world, it is their reality as they know it that it is changing. It is time to realise this.

Their changing days do not have to become yours. If you react negatively, it is from the belief that you do not have the power to keep your reality the way that it is any more. But realise – you always do. Everyone’s reality is different. This has always been the case and it always will be because we do each have our individual power. It can never leave you because it is you. You are the power that creates your world and you always will be. I am the power that creates mine and I always will be. It is time to realise this, it is time to allow.

Quote: Emerson

What I must do is all that concerns me, not what people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness.

It is the harder because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it.
It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; But the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

Emerson – Self Reliance

On Happiness

It is important to remember that the journey to find happiness will always seem never ending because the happiness you’re looking for is within the journey itself. You are not really on a ‘journey’ at all. You cannot ‘achieve’ happiness because you already have it. It is always there. You just have to notice it.

On the Higher Self

The higher self and the universe are always directing you into situations, people, places and experiences that are for your highest good; that is to say, they offer you the greatest expansion, the best and quickest path at the time to your highest joy. Let the universe take control. Trust in it because it is you and trust in you because you are the mighty, awe inspiring universe itself.

Quote: Prof. Jerry Waxman

There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, which knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.

Prof. Jerry Waxman from NYU

I have always known this. We stare in awe at the vastness and beauty of nature…because we are it.

Quote: Ram Dass “Souls Love”

Souls love. That’s what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do. Become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed-all the beings around you are souls. Be one, see one. When many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. We will be one. One love. And don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies-it’s all one. It’s one energy. It comes through in individual ways, but it’s one energy. You can call it energy, or you can call it love. I like to look at a tree and see that it’s love. Don’t you?
