Perfect Timing

Acceptance and Detachment

Acceptance allows One to live in the moment and experience true freedom from external influences as well as anxiety over the future and “what ifs” about the past. Through the acceptance of what is we are able to more appreciate and enjoy what we have while knowing that everything is in a constant state of change and evolution.

To detach One’s Self from someone or something is to remove the power of that person or thing over You. It means that Your Peace and Happiness is not reliant upon this external object outside of Your Self. This doesn’t mean that You don’t care as some have supposed, it simply means that you do not allow your caring to harm Your Own Well-Being.

I have stated before that One reaches as State of Being in which Everything matters and nothing matters, all at the same time. This is the simplest way I KNOW to describe it. While You are concerned about everything that exists there is nothing that can happen outside of You that will disturb Your Inner Peace.

When an illusory event seems to be capable of stealing Your Peace, ask Your Self, “Is this under My control?” If it is outside of Your control then it is outside of You and You must let go of it. Worry and anxiety over things We cannot change is the source of pain and misery for many people. We could rid the world of depression and anxiety IF We could teach others to live in the moment.

Own Hero

The state of depression comes from longing for what was or from not accepting what is and allowing it to take its course. There will be ups and downs, peaks and valleys throughout life. How they are traversed depends upon One’s perception. One can soar over them or one can crawl and stumble, it is YOUR choice. Behind every stormy sky, the sun awaits to share its light and warmth.

Live in the moment. Life is continually evolving, nothing stays the same. Whatever situation You find Yourself in at the moment you can be sure that there will be changes to it. To Know Peace, accept what You have in this moment no matter what it is and open your heart and mind to that which is your desire. Maintain positive thoughts and speak positive words. You create Your Own reality with YOUR thoughts and words – Don’t dwell upon what you don’t want…

Creation

Live Your Life in The Everlasting Now – For in Every Breath, in Every Heart Beat, THIS is where Eternity is found. This is where You will find Immortality…

Love Each Other,

An Enlightened Person

Religion vs Spirituality

There is more conflict caused by disagreements and arguments over religion than any other issue on this planet. Why? Shouldn’t One’s choice of religion and whether they choose to follow a particular religion be a matter of personal choice?

Enlightened Beings have been attempting to bring this message forth since the beginning. The message has been to “Seek The Guide Inside”, as The One known as Jesus said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is within You.” Religions have attempted to record the history of Spiritual experiences in order to share them but how does one convey a Spiritual experience in a book? It can be referenced but it is a poor substitute for The Real Thing.

Too many religions have become exclusionary. Most religions of the world, if not all, begin based upon the teachings of Enlightened Beings but then quickly stray due to the egoistic tendencies of men. It is the way of man to interpret Spiritual teachings in a manner that benefits them.

The Judeo-Christian religion was based upon ten commandments and quickly turned into countless sub-laws and rules of men that had nothing to do with the original instructions in many cases.

Religious leaders of this time will quote these ancient texts and demand that their followers abide by these rules and yet the very leaders and their organizations do not follow them. You will find Christians who will be obedient in “tithing” 10 percent to their local church but will pass right by the hungry and homeless in their own neighborhoods. Why? Because it is easier to give 10 percent than to give ALL as Spirit asks for. It is easier to tithe than to forgive and love those who we feel have wronged us.

Religion requires faith and trust in what is unseen and for some this is the door that opens the way for them to experience The Spiritual World. For others, the hypocrisy and exclusionary philosophy of many religions close the door and send them in another direction to find what they are seeking.

No one can tell another how to walk their path, each must find their own way. Some will find the beginnings of their Enlightenment in the Ancient Texts but the deeper One goes the more it is realized that The Spiritual Experience MUST be a personal one.

Path To Enlightenment

This is why I have titled this post Religion vs Spirituality. Not to insinuate that they are in conflict with each other, but to explain the difference. Religion is devised by and administered by men, Spirituality is actually having a Spiritual Experience. While religion is based upon faith, those who profess to be Spiritual are, in my experience seeking to KNOW.

I do not judge anyone for any reason, a person is free to believe as they choose and to follow any religion they like, or not. All are here to learn their own lessons and to find their Own way back to The One, and ALL eventually return to Oneness.

Just because someone isn’t following the same path you are on doesn’t mean they are lost. If you attained Enlightenment in a certain manner, it doesn’t mean that another must find IT in the same manner that You did… Indeed, it is unlikely that anyone will have the same experience.

Not Lost

I see the same kind of arguments within the so called “New Age” movement. I see debates over who has the most DNA activated, the color of auras, channeling, exclusion of others that don’t believe in their particular philosophy. Again, WHY is it necessary that ANYONE believe in the same way that YOU believe about ANYTHING?

Every Being on this planet has evolved to the point they are at through countless individual experiences that make them completely unique and therefor, no other can expect another Being to accept their beliefs just merely based upon faith if that is NOT the way that they are “wired”. Some Beings simply MUST know things for themselves, this is NOT a bad thing. It is the key to finding The Truth. The hunger to KNOW. Many who claim to have faith stop at a particular point of comfort while the True Seeker NEVER stops because they KNOW there is more.

Spiritual Evolution

While becoming Conscious or realizing Oneness does result in a “KNOWING”, it also creates more questions than it answers. I can promise You that IF You have not had a Spiritual Awakening you may be under the misconception that attaining a certain degree of Enlightenment will allow You to know all you want to know.

The Truth is that IF You have a True Spiritual Experience, while it will replace your faith with Knowingness, it will also cause you to question Your Own sanity. You will try to recall or remember events that occurred and in some instances may lose days of your memory and in some cases even weeks.

The Spiritual Path is One that everyone is on, even those Who do not realize it. It is a never ending path. We are ALWAYS learning, We are ALL students and We are ALL teachers. If We are open, We will learn from everyone and everything. Stay open, stay in the now, in the moment so You don’t miss a thing!

Religion is faith in The Unseen, True Spirituality is KNOWING The Unseen…

Judge No One, Forgive Everyone, Love Everyone –

We are ALL Brothers and Sisters.
