There is NO place for settling. Keep moving.
Another confirmation from nature: a rolling stone gathers no moss.
In his book, “Proof of Heaven,” Dr. Eben Alexander documents his seven-day brain dead life-after-death experience. In his death state, his soul/spirit took a journey through the Universe to Heaven. He said the sound “Om”” was omnipresent throughout all of time and space permeating everything.
The following is for you, Truth-seekers, who are aware America is in her youth. Put aside any religious tetchiness. Ancient wisdom IS—I AM THAT…I AM. (I reveal a word containing this hidden truth in my article. You who find it type it in your comment.)
“Om, according to the ancient scripts of the Vedic civilization, is the sound of life. It is the infinite vibration that shimmers through the Universe, providing life and sustenance to everything. Om is the beginning and will continue till the end; the one constant that unites all of creation at its deepest level.” – http://www.omvillage.com/meaning-of-om-symbol.htm
The Anatomy of the Symbol of OM:
“OM” – The Sacred Sound
Sounding the tone of “OM” creates a vibrational frequency of harmony in the body. The sound of the “OM” is the sound of creation and symbolizes the infinite. It connects our inner world to the greater outer and beyond, it aligns our energy and creates a feeling of openness and expansion…
“The ever present OM, is the pulse of the universe and the source of our whole being.”
The symbol represents states of consciousness
1 –This curve represents the waking state. 2 – This curve represents deep sleep or the unconscious. 3 – This curve represents the dream state (which lies between waking and deep sleep) 4- The dot represents the absolute state of consciousness which illuminates all other states of consciousness. 5 –The semicircle represents maya (or the veil of illusion.) it separates the absolute from the other three curves.”
For those who read all, here’s my secret nugget…
Recently, I received a surprise visit from a friend I haven’t heard from in a couple of years: my great blue heron. She (We haven’t been formally introduced, so I choose “she” is a her.) first entered my awareness around 3 or 4 o’clock one morning.
I was awakened from sleep by what I interpreted as a scream. I sat up to better hear. Instead of someone screaming, I heard screeching. On this—her second—visit, I saw her standing by my back stream, exactly where I saw her my first time. I was in the midst of my physical, emotional, and spiritual transition, so I interpreted her visit as my sign to investigate her message to me.
In Native American lore, the heron embodies wisdom and patience. Herons are intelligent, resourceful, and very determined. They are at home in three elements: Water, Earth and Air. Comfortable in multiple elements, the heron will have one foot on land, and one foot in the water while breathing air (and air being its medium for flight) patiently waiting for its dinner to swim by. Comfort in multiple elements is symbolic of easy transitions. My “transition” was very challenging.
One article I read spoke of liminal spaces.
“liminal: a barely perceptual sensory threshold; of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition.” – Merriam-Webster
In ancient cultures, the action of the heron having one foot on land, and one foot in the water has been recognized as “a sign of liminality – of crossing into a space that is neither here, nor there.” This is what Eckhart Tolle refers to as the “Now.”
This spoke to me of my transition, my in-between place. I was neither here, nor there…which reminded me what my daddy used to say to reel me back from whatever excuse or rationalization I was giving him for whatever I was in trouble for!
“That’s neither here nor there.” he would say. True! I was desiring escape from my uncomfortable space.
Blue Heron’s message to me: I am not my environment. I am not my body. I am not even my circumstance. She showed me I CAN move through my in-between places, people and/or things, calmly and patiently. I CAN maintain my stability. I CAN remain focused. I CAN BE present.
When you find yourself in liminal spaces, an in-between phase, remember Heron’s tranquil stability, ready and set for action when her perfect opportunity swims by. Until, her wise stillness is mirrored on the water’s calm surface.
My transition is my Now. I am learning: I touch my feelings in-between my upgrades—“opportunities;” I feel my emotions; I stay in my now; I breathe inspiration in my tranquility; I love my life, and I love my life lessons.
As I utilize my Mastery Systems’ (www.masterysystems.com ) life upgrade coaching tools, I remember:
I touch. I feel. I stay. I breathe. I love.

So, what fills “empty” space? I’ll get back to there tomorrow. (Remember: September is paradigm shift month.)
God’s Love IS Forever Now. God is jealous for ALL to love Him. In intimate communication, we know He loves us/all, Jesus intercedes for us/the world, and Holy Spirit works overtime to teach us Christ-likeness, Jesus’s compassion, and God’s mercy and majesty.
God’s righteous judgment is right, and mercy is the grace of God.
“For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” James 2:13 (ESV)
Not that God doesn’t judge. He does and He will! His judgment is to lead us into repentance and into the narrow way wide with Grace.
Holy Spirit’s nudges are gentle. Listen to your heart thoughts. When a family member, friend, enemy, acquaintance, teacher, stranger, movie star, singer, politician…comes to mind, speak their name in prayer. Prayer can change someone’s eternity. There’ll be no rising from the final fire.
“Father God, I desire __________ with me at Your Son’s wedding.” Now, rest. THEY will do the rest.
I anticipate You at my BIG Fat Heavenly Wedding feast!!!

Yes, some days breathing is an exhausting exercise, although your breath is more than inhaling and exhaling air. Read how being fastidiously persnickety is my recipe for health, happiness, and wholeness.

Have you asked yourself why you feel the need to control your child, your spouse, a sibling, a friend? There are many possibilities, but fear is the most probable. Usually, it has nothing to do with them; it’s all about you.
I can’t remember one scripture where Jesus said that one person has greater significance than another. I do recall Him warning, “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy.”
Fear is a dictator. It ruthlessly controls, with no checks and balances.
Control is a thief. It wants to dominate—to exercise oppressive restrictions over another’s freedom. It robs personal expression—the liberty to be one’s true self.
Let’s get free, and give others their freedom.
Remember: True Love gave free will.
Thank you, God, for lettin’ me be myself, again…and again, without condemnation. Just as I am.
P.S. This fourth verse of “Thank you” says it all:
Flamin’ eyes of people fear, burnin’ into you Many men are missin’ much, hatin’ what they do Youth and truth are makin’ love, Dig it for a starter Dyin’ young is hard to take Sellin’ out is harder. – Sly & The Family Stone, “Thank you” (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
So often when things change in our lives, we have such a resistance to the change. This is because when people see a big change appearing they are often fearful that it is something bad. But it is important to remember that when something big changes in our lives, it means something better is coming.
There cannot be a vacuum in the Universe, and so as something moves out, something must come in and replace it.
When change comes, relax, have total faith, and know that the change is ALL GOOD.http://bit.ly/1ClUDSl
“PROMOTION is coming, and you will see how it was TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Beloved, what you’re coming THROUGH and are about to come OUT OF….. FELT like it was gonna take you outta here. The pain & pressure was so REAL that it’s almost like you have the “literal scars” to prove it. What your MIND was put through. What your HEART was put through. What your EMOTIONS were put through. Even changes in your BODY!
But don’t give up! You’re right where He wants you to be. You were intentionally HAND-PICKED by the strategic plan of God! The whole time there was something He was coming after; the TARGET of His BURNING, INTENSE LOVE for you. But not just you, but the MANY SOULS you’re called to!
That the REAL YOU that REVEALS HIM would now COME FORTH IN PURITY & POWER, and how everything else in the way got to be BURNT UP & BURNT OUT! Our God Who Is a Refiner’s Fire has chosen YOU to put you IN IT, for a reason!
But only for a season.
He says you’re ALMOST THERE, and you shall be the UNDENIABLE PROOF. PROMOTION is coming, and YOU’RE coming out as PURE GOLD!!!”
