“Can I do something?” is a far different question from “will I do something?” For the first is a question of ability, while the second is a question of ability rendered irrelevant by passion.” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough
Responsibility…Responding to all opportunities with the Ability God placed within You…..
We have come from our wilderness dimension….
We are called to express to others….The Light …The Way…
With every privilege comes a responsibility in it…
New responsibilities are required to step into the new dimension God is calling us to…
that new dimension, where we respond with the ability God gave us, for this time on Earth….to walk in the world and truly not of the world….expressing in form….our Higher Self…Holy Spirit…. seeding Light…showing The Way….
We are called to show others….The Christ shining through Us….
Ephesians 4:22-24 Christian Standard Bible
22 to take off[a] your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires, 23 to be renewed[b] in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on[c] the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.
The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.
He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, `Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
“There’s moments we all experience in life where we find ourselves having a funeral for dreams that we once really believed in.”
A sermon from Steven Furtick, Elevation Church’s lead pastor, inspired the song *listen below*as he detailed the funeral of the prophet Elisha in 2 Kings. Intending to bury another man, a pair of Israelites were standing near Elisha’s gravesite when they saw their enemy fast-approaching. Scared, they quickly threw the dead body into Elisha’s grave. Miraculously, when the body touched the dead prophet’s bones, the man came to life.
Elisha still had a resurrection miracle left in his bones, and God is still in the business of bringing dead things back to life.
“If we’ll trust God even with the seemingly dead areas of our lives, if we’ll believe in the power of God, if we’ll declare resurrection power over everything we sow, nothing will be wasted.”
“I didn’t survive the storm outside to allow anyone (including myself) to erode my soul” ― Vijaya Gowrisankar
The mind of an enlightened creator KNOWS that of themselves, they do nothing. But in each moment of decision, they can ALLOW, the great power and mystery of Love to direct their course. They can utilize time to refine their ability to hear ONLY the voice of Love, moment by moment, breath by breath, day by day, until time is translated into eternity. And the mind rests, reclines, in its perfect union with God. Events still occur. The world is still what the world will choose to be, unaware that there walks in its midst one who is awake, who needs to make no show. They merely ARE the presence of wakefulness, knowing that in each moment, they will now be INformed by the guidance of the Comforter, the guidance of right-mindedness, the guidance of enlightenment.
The Way of Mastery… The Way of the Heart
It’s not what you believe….it’s what you allow….
This is the true nature of the undivided balance….. ones wholehearted acceptance to that which they themselves are allowing….
“There’s truths you have to grow into.” ― H.G. Wells
even thorns bloom…..
While addressing that which is going on within …..for that’s all that is truly going on….be mellow with that which you place focus on….be gentle dear traveler….when finding freedom from what could have been…
No words or movements needed or required……are ever hurried….
“Love is holy because it is like grace–the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.” ― Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
“None of us is promised an easy life. There is nothing we can do to keep ourselves immune to trials, and we cannot eradicate painful feelings in our lives. But even the most difficult seasons are not absent of God’s love. And this love changes us. This is what I want to tell you: on the far side of pain we don’t prefer, we find transformation we wouldn’t trade.” ― Nicole Zasowski, From Lost to Found:
Seems we have always been next door to Heaven…..
Like a glimpse in the peripheral vision…..the feeling is ever so quick, yet runs so deep in the marrow… you feel the wind of its calling….its moment…and you touch that glimpse all day long and each time..the heart expands and the anticipation in the Spirit vibrates….
We watch as clouds shape shift and break out into beautiful colors of our imaginations…..
we squint to squeeze a bit more time into the sensation….
At that very moment…gateways are opening…bridges crossed, vanish…and the most splendid horrible relief comes over you….
Breathe deep dear travelers…we are stepping into a new life…and as that might sound so beautiful and full of anticipated happiness…
.…awakening was a horrible relief…and courage came….while we dared to bloom through it all….
All flowers, in time…bend toward the Sun…….
“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.” ― Zamyatin, We
