“I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God”_ Sufi Proverb
A new world is rising. Fire is burning. The fire of the soul. The fire that needs no explaining, the fire of consciousness, the fire of love.
The dream starts becoming reality and is unstoppable and limitless, because it comes from the depths of the heart. We are being called. We are being awakened.
There will be no space for limitations; no space for old heartless actions. The New World is alive and it’s revealing itself. The rainbow warriors are going to war, war of love, and covering the planet with it. There is no space for anything else in their hearts because they are governed by it, by pure Love.
This transition is happening right now and even though it might take another 20 years for the massive changes to be in place, we are already creating, supporting and nurturing this new reality.
The inspiration is in the air, there is no stopping this cosmic force and energetic wave. We just have to surrender to the order of the all.
Overwhelming? Yes it is. But how wonderfully amazing at the same time.
If you are aware of the New Order you know in your heart and you can feel the fire burning right now reading these words. Something is calling you right in your soul to find out what you are here to do, and how you are going to support the New Era.
Many of us are experiencing the crisis and falling apart only to be rebuilt in the new shape needed of us to live in accordance to the new.
There isn’t really much we can do, apart from surrender to the light of the soul, pick up our swords, and launch into the greater battle. There is no greater sword than kindness, love and compassion. It’s time to arm ourselves with divine truth, share the infinite love from our hearts, and raise the world’s vibration.
Be brave, because you are called into this battle. You are called to give unconditional love to the world, to be compassionate to the ones who are blind to love, to be kind to the ones who hurt because they lack love. So be the rainbow and shower everything with love. Flow from love, it’s a brave act to renounce ego and to embrace love.
Call upon the power within you for divine guidance, submerge into the light and continue the change and daily evolution. Find in your rebirth a way of becoming your true self and a greater self than you were yesterday. Lead by example of living in your truth and being love itself.
Be brave, be you, and be the light.
Stay strong and stay in tune.
Connect to your heart daily and to the wisdom of the heart.
I AM is the name of God. I AM is known as the “Lost Word”. The word “I AM” has never really been lost. But the true meaning has been. The power that goes with understanding what I AM is and has been lost. I searched for the best book I could find on this subject but couldn’t seem to find what I was looking for so but through the hundreds of metaphysical books I had read I knew that I AM was important enough to have one book on the subject…… I took the best of the best from the best authors on the subject (in my humble opinion of course) and compiled this little masterpiece of the great I AM. Within its pages if you apply what you read and understand you may just be surprised at the results.
It is with this in mind that this book was born.
Your I AM-ness, your Consciousness, is the way in which you change your world. Whatever you attach to I AM you become. As you affirm with feeling, I am illumined, inspired, loving, harmonious, peaceful, happy and strong, you will resurrect these qualities that lie dormant within you, and wonders will happen in your life. When men and women help you in the realization of your dreams, they are playing their part and are messengers testifying to your beliefs and convictions. You wrote the play, and other men and women execute the parts conforming to your concept of yourself.
The emergence of Zen as a distinct school of Buddhism was first documented in China in the 7th century CE. From China, Zen spread south to Vietnam, and east to Korea and Japan. As a matter of tradition, the establishment of Zen is credited to the South Indian prince-turned-monk Bodhidharma, who came to China to teach a “special transmission outside scriptures, not founded on words or letters”.
This beautiful documentary takes you into the very private world of The Zen Mind – the mind searching for enlightenment. Journey across Japan from the small zen centers of Tokyo to the enormous zen monasteries in the remote mountains and glimpse into the secret practices of a zen monk.
Zen is a school of Mahāyāna Buddhism. The Japanese word Zen is derived from the Chinese word Chán, which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna, which means “meditation” or “meditative state”.
Zen emphasizes experiential prajñā in the attainment of enlightenment. As such, it de-emphasizes theoretical knowledge in favor of direct realization through meditation and dharma practice. The teachings of Zen include various sources of Mahāyāna thought, including the Prajñāpāramitā literature and the teachings of the Yogācāra and Tathāgatagarbha schools.
“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.” – Rachel Naomi Remen
So what is healing? What does it mean to be healed? What are we constantly looking for and trying to fix?
I have experienced so many different healing technologies, and the more I discover the more I find everything is essentially the same, or trying to reach the same.
We are all trying to connect with the pure unconditional love, the creating force, the force that is right within ourselves but we have somehow forgotten is there. So we run around like headless chickens looking for the answer everywhere but within. Although it’s easier said than done…
To really look within, to really connect with your truth and the light of your infinite boundless soul can be very simple. Yes, believe me, it can. We humans have the great ability of complicating things and making our lives harder. If only we could truly believe in our own endless power, we would be able to see how easy it is to connect to our divinity and that we don’t have to go far to find it as we have it inside ourselves.
Accessing this power can be equally easy, but again the complexity of the human game gets in the way of the simplest of truths.
The point I’m making here is the following: yes, there are various ways which lead to the same end place of Love and Peace, but we don’t have to make it such a hard road for ourselves. We can BE the road and claim our divinity. We can look inside and connect with God; there is no other way of saying it. But yes, truly believing in this possibility is the grand part of allowing it to happen.
Totally and completely surrendering yourself to the power within you is the way to come back to your origins to go back to where you came from to be who you are meant to be, and to experience full abundance and joy, to play with life and of course, to connect with others.
Healing can help, that’s for sure. It can clear your inner eyes to the truth. It can guide you to the realisation that you are the Guru. And whatever you have been looking for externally, it’s not anywhere but within yourself.
Through Andrew’s hands, I had the opportunity to experience OFT healing, which is no more than connecting to the true Original Feeling: the feeling of coming back home, the home where we all came from.
During this experience, I was taken into a journey. A journey in which my emotions travelled through time and space. Old emotions and feelings that I’m very familiar with came up, then I was taken through the pain which accompanied those emotions. The tears were intense and overwhelming, the pain was very real, things I no longer remembered appeared and things I have never been able to forget, too.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ― Rumi
After each emotion that rises from the depths of your unique infinity, you surrender to the breath. Oh yes, the breath, the mechanic that keeps us alive, letting the air in all the way to every cell in your system. Expanding you into awareness and taking you to other dimensions.
And just like that, the healing does its magical work, from the inside out. It starts to smooth your gentle soul, bringing you Home, bringing you to connect with you, bringing you to God. Your body may start dissolving into blissfulness, you are no longer aware of where you are, nor who you are, because you have just crossed the bridge beyond the universe.
Coming back from that place is not easy, or is it us complicating it again? But once you are back, you bring the experience with you, and you know for a fact that you can go back home because you are home.
It’s funny how the pain shapes you. It creates this wall between you and connecting with others. But our destiny as human souls is to break them down with an open heart, a heart that maybe has been broken so many times, a heart that may be tired of pain but a heart that because of all its suffering became mighty, and now it’s really cracked open, ready to embrace and swallow life in its fullest. A heart that knows home is within, and that healing comes from Pure Love.
Let the light of love heal you. But know the place it comes from is right there, within you.
“Love doesn’t need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.” _ Deepak Chopra
In Conflict, that’s how we live most of the time.
Not with anyone else, but with ourselves. In fact, the only reason we have conflicts with others is because we first have an internal aspect of ourselves that we do not accept.
So, we grow into fighting with our own existence. We fight against time, every minute we live is a minute taken away from our life. Right? We are accustomed to the idea that one day “this life” as we know it will be over and it will no longer exist. So what is the point?
Since I was a little girl, I have had this crazy urge to know why we are here. If we are gonna die.. What is the point? Okay, if we are spirits.. souls.. why are we here? Where did we come from? How was the universe created? Is there a God? Where is he/she?
What is the point? Where do we go? What are we?
So many questions…
Well, there was a point I just pretended they were no longer there. I did like everyone else I knew and got on with my life – better not to think of such grand life mysteries.
Luckily for me, I chose a very intense way of learning more about the absolute truths of infinity.. My way was, and still is, LOVE.
I decided love was to show me the way and guide me into light itself (I’m only aware of my choice at present.. it wasn’t so clear in the past).
Enough with the philosophy talk.. let me try and get practical here .. If you read one of my previous articles and discovered my Valentine’s day odyssey, you will be familiar with my heart having a voice of its own and becoming an actual moving power.
So I had some sort of revelation about love, how it actually works when it comes from the heart, and how it liberates your soul..
See, I have been in love so many times.. and every time I had a different lesson to learn, many times I learnt nothing , many times it was just pain (and in those times pain was the teacher).
However, this time pure unconditional attachment-free love is the master and professor of my life learning experiences.
Let’s rewind.. to a week ago.
Tuesday evening, 24th of February, I was on my way to meet this person.. The one who triggered this nuclear chain of events.
Life has this way of teaching and showing us things, even when we assume we have it all figured out, it will show us another aspect that we didn’t quite know was there, or was even possible.
I’m a rather stubborn person. I used to be terrible, now I’m just stubborn (I’m sure along my path I’ll have much to learn about this particular subject).
When I’m convinced a person no longer deserves my love and attention, I completely move on and don’t look back, not even if a part of me says it might be a mistake. Now, I know this reaction is led by fear and Ego, trying to protect my feelings.
The truth is that if you have truly moved on, there is no need to avoid, run or ignore an ex, because they will no longer affect you. If you had to take measures to remove this person from your life and away from you, it’s because they still have some power over you and maybe you haven’t learned what you were supposed to.
… I’m making a point there I promise …
The fact is this: I honestly thought this guy was on his way out of my life and this door was just about to be closed forever.. I didn’t want to have anything to do with him.. no friendship or any kind of contact .. He has already moved on and there is no point in keeping in contact.
I was so very sure and very happy to say goodbye once and for all, wish him all the best and tell him how much I wish him well. So I can be totally open to new people in my heart.
So I’m on my way to meet Mr Nuclear (having in mind it would be a quick one), collect my favourite book “Awareness” by Anthony De Mello – which I bet he didn’t even open in the last 3 months – and say goodbye.
So, he says “ Hey, my meeting has been cancelled. Do you have plans? Should we have dinner?”
I wasn’t sure what to say, as I didn’t want to spend much time with him. It was a bit pointless, I thought..
But being polite and all, I told myself “surely it won’t kill me”, plus I have some things I would like to tell him..
We ended up at Vinoteca in Farringdon. If you are a Londoner, you might know the place. It has a rather cosy atmosphere – but this is far away from the point.
As we sat facing each other …. Discussing how things ended, it was hard to hear him as I was trying to focus and not let my tears come out … The whole event was very civilised, but there was something else, a feeling I’m still learning about … The feeling of doing exactly what I was meant to be doing according to my destiny and soul…
I went on and told him how much I have been through in my spiritual journey since I had met him, so many doors have been opened and how happy I am. In fact, I have never been happier and so sure of who I am and what my life purpose is.
I found my soul mission, and guess what, that’s one of the reasons you are able to read this article … because I now know what my soul desires, and this is only a small part of how I wish to communicate with the world.
He opened so many doors… I was trying to explain to him about karmic contracts and this feeling of knowing him from before incarnating on Earth. The look on his face always amuses me… that “WHAT are you talking about?!” expression…
Does it mean HE Is The One? We are meant to be together? I have no idea what so ever…
I haven’t even had the chance to get to know him well in this life … (I want to, but only time will tell if I will). Would that be as friends or in a romantic way? Again, I have no idea!
The point is, it doesn’t matter … I love him for what he has done, I love him because I remember our agreement made before incarnating in this life … I love him with no reason for loving him, even though he has one thousand faults as well as his one thousand qualities. It is what it is. We both felt this ridiculous familiarity from the first day we met. It is something one can’t explain; it has to be experienced.
I love him beyond this life and I want him to be happy, with me or not, it really doesn’t matter.
I guess this is what happens when you surrender yourself to love. You set whom you love free, so you can experience Freedom itself.
“I have no fear of losing you, for you aren’t an object of my property, or anyone else’s. I love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine” – Anthony De Mello
Your Soul grows into light and awe. You are in Love with Love itself. Your happiness doesn’t depend on the person, it never did, this love makes everything clear and bright and you find yourself within it.
On that Tuesday evening, I had another magical experience, not because of him, but because once again I was fully in my path feeling and following my truth wearing no masks and talking and flowing from my heart (if he is reading this he is surely saying, well he is the reason and the trigger of it all – it may be).
It seems like life still has some more lessons on this matter installed for me. What they may be, I don’t know, but I will be sure to share them all with you.
He said to me “Now What? It doesn’t feel like I’ll never see you again.. Don’t be a stranger, stay in touch”.
I still don’t know if he really meant it or not, or if I will actually even see him again..
As we walked out of the restaurant, we laughed about the whole thing, he said no one had ever written about him before.
I went to bed that night in peace, yet I kept waking up early in the morning and his face kept appearing in my dreams and morning meditation. I looked at the clock, it was 6:00 am, and I had that feeling.. that he was also going through the same sleep disturbance…
I texted him later that day and asked, already knowing the answer.. “Were you awake early this morning? On and off around 6:00 am?”
He said: “Yes”..
He doesn’t believe in these things.. But I know, I know what they mean.
I’m no longer in conflict, I’ve surrendered to it , I’ve surrendered to love.
“Loneliness cannot create love, it creates need. Love is not a need.Then what is love? Love is luxury. It comes out of aloneness, when you are tremendously alone and happy and joyous and celebrating, and great energy goes on storing in you. You don’t need anybody. In that moment the energy is so much, You would like it to be shared. Then you give, you give because you have so much, you give without asking anything in return – that is love …When the cloud is full of rain, it showers, and when the flower is full of fragrance, it releases its fragrance to the winds. Unaddressed, the fragrance is released.And the flower does not wait to ask “What is coming back to me in return?” The flower is happy that the winds have been kind enough to relieve him of a burden.” –OSHO
Are you running around in circles? Keeping busy asking no questions?
It’s hard to believe, but a lot of people live under their own shadow. Afraid to shine, afraid of what they could have been.They have no idea who they truly are. They have absorbed their own existence through the eyes of their external reality – they judge themselves through the eyes of everyone else but themselves.I guess it might be very hard to imagine a world where there is no one else but you. Because so many of us let everything else have such an impact in our essence.
But if it was the case, and you were the only human left on the planet with no one else to talk to or interact with, it doesn’t mean you would fade into non-existence; you would be still you, having to deal with a lot of yourself.However, living through other people’s opinion of ourselves is normally what we experience. We were programmed like that, so it’s not a surprise.
I’ve been and still am absorbed in the Hamster Wheel. It’s hard to stop running in the wheel, when it’s all we know and it’s all we have had.
Until BANG! Life shakes you out of it. It hits you in the head so hard that it forces you to get out for a moment and look around.
I know very much about those moments, I’ve had plenty of those. But that’s not what I want to talk about today.I want to explore this crazy frenzy of running like a rodent in circles like there is nothing else out there for me. Pretending I’m content with whatever crumbs I find on the way.Back to the Hamster Wheel … Whenever I fell out of it – because life had hit me in the head -I had the chance to look around from outside the Wheel and try to make some sense of why I have been there running round and round all this time.There is no questioning about why you are in the wheel, no time to ask – while you are running it.
But hey! When things get bad and you fall out of it, the minimum you can do is to question why you were there in the first place.You might try to change things around and stick to a plan and make sure you don’t get back in it, but unfortunately for me, all the previous times I was on the floor looking at the wheel, with my big hamster eyes, trying to find a meaning for the whole thing, I got sucked back into it, started running, and forgot all about my questions.It wasn’t until recently that life hit me hard enough to shake things up so much that the wheel was no longer working and I had a chance to stay out of it for a while – against my will of course.They say pain teaches you.
Death has this power.. It’s overwhelming, it changes things..Death puts things into perspective, it shows you how powerless you can be and how fragile life can be.It does make you wonder if you are doing things right, and what is the point in running around in circles.When my brother was murdered I went into shock, and I woke up. At that time in my life I went through so much inner change and discovery that I didn’t want to hop back on the wheel.
I knew for a fact my time was limited and I didn’t even know how long I had. For all I know tomorrow is no guarantee.It got me thinking about all my dreams that I left behind, all the passion I had in me and what I have been doing about it. Chasing my happiness in the wrong places without even knowing who I was.Outside of the Wheel, I started questioning who I was and who I am now.It made me look back and realise that everything I had been scared of wasn’t about living a meaningless life – because I’ve always done so much and also gave my best to live it fully and do things with no regrets. I was very scared because I didn’t know who I was.
I was afraid of embracing my own dreams and allowing myself to live them.So yes.. I woke up, I got out of the Wheel – I still have to hop on it from time to time .. But I refuse to stay there.I want to live, I want to get to know who I am, and I want to change the world and myself. I want to make a difference. Not for anyone else – but for myself.I’m nowhere near getting there, but the journey is ahead and I have started to walk it.
