The Perfect Key is You

We’re created 
in perfect key – 
the frequency 
of Love 

Listening to fear
will make you tone deaf 
to God, Love and yourself 

Everything strikes 
a cord
It just depends 
in what key
someone is playing
and in what key
someone is listening 

Like tuning forks
in the road
calling us 
more deeply
into what we are 
or what we’re not –
Love or fear

The perfect key is Love
The perfect key is You 

 

 

Love & fear are Both Hiring, Which Company Will You Choose?

When a child falls and hurts themselves, many surround them, help them up and help them heal. When an adult falls and hurts themselves, many surround them, point out what’s wrong with them, try to decide if the person is worthy of help, and reminds them about their fall.

The Creator of your understanding has chosen you and you’ve agreed to be here to do something that only you can do. Through prayer and meditation we can go deep inside our hearts and get our own performance review from our Boss. As we review our job description with the Boss, we find our job description is our vision, dreams and purpose. Our individual job descriptions may differ in how but the what is always the same, and the what we are supposed to do is love. There is not one person, past or present, who our Boss has ever given the job of judgment to – deciding who is or isn’t worthy.

Our job is to love, nothing more, nothing less. If we find that we have been doing things that are not in our job description, we’re not doing our job, thus missing the mark and our calling. Perhaps we changed companies and didn’t even know it.

The only two companies we can keep and work for is Love or fear. They’re both willing to have you work for them at any moment you choose. I assure you that you are much more qualified to work for Love, since it is Love that created you exactly like itself. Besides, I heard an inside scoop that the more of us that decide to work for Love, and accept the jobs of healing that Love offers, the more others will too. And in doing so, in just a little bit of time, the company of fear will be bankrupt, because in the spiritual economy, every investment in Love withdraws everyone away from the illusions of fear, and all the jobs of destruction fear offers.

Your Road to Damascus

Acts 9:3-9 New International Version (NIV)

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

 So there Saul was living his life, mercilessly persecuting those who believed differently than he did. Along the road to Damascus he was struck blind and heard God say, “Why do you persecute me?” He didn’t ignore this, or try to write with some type of scientific explanation. He understood the importance of that moment, and began an intimate relationship with the Creator. In this intimate transformation, he became Paul, and a disciple of Jesus Christ. His sight was brought back to him but with a renewed vision, this time living from his heart and following the intimate and personal voice we all hear from deep within our hearts. 

What was your road to Damascus? If you haven’t had a road to Damascus experience thus far, it can be challenging to appreciate those who’ve had this type of experience.  

The lives of every person we encounter are never as simple as presented. In a facade-filled society where protecting perceived prestige and titles is a norm, it becomes challenging to appreciate those who are willing to reveal their past mistakes and challenges.

Those who are willing to share their testimonies are sometimes labeled in negative ways. The very urge to label someone who has the courage to share their testimony with others demonstrates how sharing our personal testimony stirs a remembrance within others about the roads to Damascus some hold secret. Thoughts or statements in response to someone sharing their struggles such as “I would never”, “I can’t believe she did that”, or “Why would he share that?” come from many who claim various forms of religiosity as bedrock for their lives. It’s interesting how those who claim Christianity as their religion will quote various individuals, who, before their moment of transformation had bad reputations from less than honorable lifestyles. If it isn’t obvious, the irony is simple: people will quote scripture from those they themselves would have labeled as “undesirables” and “criminals” but who are now considered spiritual leaders, yet will reject people who have come from the depths of prostitution, gang life, drug dealing, alcoholism, and incarceration among us right here, right now as living, breathing miracles, and in-your-face testimonies of the true healing power of our Creator regardless of religion, but exclusively dependent upon Spiritual Relationship. 

It’s in the complete and honest dialogues of our challenges and shortcomings that true teaching-learning experiences blossom. I am not advocating indiscriminate & complete personal disclosure; we have to be careful with that. I am advocating that our personal road to Damascus experience can be the greatest foundation of compassion we have with ourselves and each other. To a greater or lesser extent we all have our own personal road to Damascus. A moment we saw beyond our physical sight and beyond ourselves with great perception in order to glimpse the impact our thoughts, words, and actions are having upon our family, community and world. Never underestimate the power of your personal road to Damascus, and never demean someone else’s personal road to Damascus.  

For anyone reading this that views others in our communities who are currently or were previously afflicted with alcoholism, drug addiction, prostitution, gang affiliation, drug dealing or any other forms of negative lifestyles as “less than” perhaps this writing is a personal road to Damascus of sorts for you. A moment for you to reflect upon any self-righteous indignation you may carry towards or about those you would consider “less than,” “beneath you,” “unreachable,” or “beyond help.” Carrying this type of view about anyone is a poison that blinds us to the reality that the Creator has placed within all of us. A reality we must see in one another so that we can remind one another of the greatness placed gently within everyone by the hands of The Great One.  As disturbing as it may be to your ego, your labels, judgments, and opinions cannot hold the translation of anyone’s life, including your own. The Creator alone holds the final translation about everyone and everything.

Perhaps if you take a moment to go beyond your physical sight and look deep within your heart you’ll see nobody sets out to become a prostitute, addict, and place more value on money than human lives. Perhaps within your heart you’ll hear a still, small voice saying, “They are my children and deeply wounded. You might have wound up exactly like them if you went through exactly what they did. If you’re so perfect then shouldn’t you have more than just labels and judgments to place upon the altars of my hurting children’s minds and hearts? Don’t you see them as a part of Me? Don’t you see them as part of you? Why do you persecute yourself? Why do you persecute Me?”

Hurt, pain, loss, tragedy, condemnation, and persecution in various forms is what moves our youth into negative lifestyles; offering the exact opposite is what’s required of us to bring them back.

Youth Gang Intervention Tip About Activities

Youth Gang Intervention Tip About Activities: 

Activities in and of themselves are not gang intervention. Baseball, soccer, chess, yoga, creative writing, painting, basketball, poetry, spoken word, music, football, boxing, MMA, etc., are all good activities. The intervention comes into play before, during and after the activity, where the facilitators of the activity connects with the youth, and guides them in developing powerful, internal metaphors that instill resilience, fortitude, honor, healthy choices, and a powerful healing vision that the youth can and will focus on and apply in challenging situations when they’re away from the programs and activities.

A program will only rise to the level of the people facilitating it. Allow the Creator of your understanding to facilitate your programs through you with the most powerful force there is – love.

The Sacred Bundle of Light

It was a time of great difficulty for the people. There were wars, rumors of wars, famine, unwholesome reasoning, unskillful desires, contrived malice, drugs, alcohol, and a thick fog of hopelessness that began to take over the land. It was a time when many no longer believed in their own voice, so they couldn’t believe in the voices of others. The people wanted things to be different, yet they attacked all those who thought or acted differently. It was a dark time when rumors, gossip, and other forms of violence held the people’s attention, while peace, healing, and solutions were mocked. Warriors were perceived as cowards and cowards were perceived as warriors. Drugs, alcohol, violence and jealousy were treated as friends, yet friends were treated as enemies.

In the midst of this great despair many cried out to the Creator for help. Since no prayer ever goes unheard or unanswered, the Creator immediately sent help. The Creator sent a sacred woman to the people. The sacred woman carried a sacred bundle of light that was to be gifted to the world. The sacred bundle of light she carried contained the answers to the prayers of the people, as well as the memories of what human beings are, so that we could once again see ourselves and each other as nothing less than sacred blessings, miracles and gifts.

The sacred woman’s journey from the heavens was a much shorter trip than the journey she took after she arrived on Earth. Once on Earth, the sacred woman had to endure many things on her journey to deliver the sacred bundle of light to the people. Before the sacred woman was given the sacred bundle of light to carry and deliver to the people, she was first given the highest possible levels of love, gratitude, fortitude and resilience. The sacred woman was met with the violence of those difficult times. She endured many disappointments, attacks, betrayals and condemnation. The sacred bundle of light was given to her to deliver to the people because the Creator knew, that although she will experience pain, and she may stumble, she would never be detoured by the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional violence that erupted upon the land during those days. The sacred woman was charged with delivering the sacred bundle of light, so the darkness of those times held not even the slightest chance of victory over her.

Just as the Creator had done for her, the sacred woman did the same for the sacred bundle of light. She placed all that she is within the sacred bundle of light before delivering it to the people. Through the sacred woman, life, love, fortitude, resilience, and the answer to the prayers of the people were lovingly wrapped inside the sacred bundle of light.

Coming close to death, the sacred woman delivered the answers that the people cried out for. She laid down her life and the Creator delivered the sacred bundle of light through her. The sacred woman is your mother. The sacred bundle of light she delivered to this world is you.

Unravel the sacred bundle of light you are by opening your heart and being a vessel thorough which the prayers of others are answered.

Stop Sitting in an Empty Courtroom Demanding a Retrial

For years I heard the voices of ridicule, critics, meanness, and hurt. I replayed them over and over again, especially in situations where amazing opportunities were presented, which of course led to sabatoge, self-sabatoge, and projecting that hurt onto others. Then one day in prayer I was reminded by God that I have just as many recordings of compliments, encouragement, inspiration, victories, and love; and I am in full control of the station, volume, and playlist in my mind. I asked God to filter out everything not of God from me, and I began to hear goodness, love, encouragement, inspiration, and love again – even from the voices of those whose loving and encouraging words were far and few between, but at one point or another they did say something positive. 

Sitting Bull has been quoted as saying, “Take from the road that which works,” and the only thing that will work is love. 

I had the great privilege and blessing to interview John Trudell before he passed away, and in our conversation he must have repeated this at least ten times, “It’s okay to like ourselves. As human beings we need to like ourselves. We might not like everything we’ve said or done, but we need to like ourselves to honor Creator and all of creation. It’s okay to like yourself.”

You have always been and will always be loved.

You have always been and will always be forgiven.

A Course in Miracles says, “Only my own condemnation can hurt me.” Stop sitting in an empty courtroom where you’ve already been declared innocent and demanding a retrial!!!!You are innocent!!!!

You are free!!!!

Accept it and remind the rest of us sitting in empty courtrooms demanding a retrial that we’re free, too!!!!

Yes, like and love God, and like and love what God created – you, You!

Ask the Creator of your understanding to rid you of any thoughts that are hurtful about you. Tell the truth about you to you. The truth doesnt hurt, the lies do. The truth is that you are a sacred blessing, miracle, and gift. Anything else is a lie. Stop replaying the lies. 

There is nothing humble about disagreeing with the Creator. The Creator made you wonderful, intelligent, handsome, beautiful, creative, and with wonderful gifts to share with all of us. 

There is nothing arrogant about agreeing with the Creator about you, and claiming it – replaying it until the truth is louder and more consistent than the lies. 

You are sacred.

You are a blessing.

You are a miracle.

You are precious.

You are a gift. 

You are amazing.

You are loved.

You are God’s precious child created in God’s likeness and image. Clean the mirror and change the station to see and hear you as the love you are once again. Be humble and agree with God’s truth about you again, so you can see all others in the same miraculous love we all are.

Receive Your Blessings, Miracles & Gifts

Do not press the self sabotage button…ever.When you feel unworthy of a blessing, accept it anyway.
When you feel undeserving of a miracle, welcome it anyway.

When you feel unmerited of a gift, receive it anyway.

The blessings, miracles, and gifts are never just for you anyway.

When you deny them you deny others of them. When you receive them, you accept them for you and those they are supposed to get to through you.

Blessings, miracles, and gifts will often appear when you feel unworthy for three reasons:
1.To remind you that you are worthy of blessings, miracles, and gifts.

2.To show you that you are a blessing, miracle, and gift.

3.To move through you to remind and show others that they are worthy of and truly are nothing less than a blessing, miracle, and gift.
