Default Reflections On Life

We are all the Universe’s beloved children of the Earth and an integral part of Its Creation. Our true nature is love and every one of us is valuable and has a right to find a measure of happiness in loving and being loved. The awareness of those who still mistake themselves for nothing but earthlings is in need of the healing that comes finding a better understanding of this.

From ‘Reflections On Life’

It has been said that because two people argue does not mean they do not love each other and that because some folks refuse to argue is a sign that they do. I find it childish to fall out with each other because of a difference of opinion. When a situation has been duly considered from all angles, in all our relationships it is all right to come to the conclusion that it is better to agree to disagree than falling out. Wise ones bear in mind that whenever disputes arise, two persons can be confronted with exactly the same things and perceive them in a totally different way.

Depending on one’s point of view, all participants in any argument can be right and wrong, at the same time. That’s the way it has to be for human beings, because of the different lessons we all have to participate in on the Earth plane. With a bit of goodwill any dispute can be settled peacefully, simply by accepting each other’s views, even though they differ. The level of someone’s spiritual maturity reveals itself in nothing more clearly than in the ability and willingness – or otherwise – to agree to disagree with others in times of conflict.

Default Doing The Right Things

Doing The Right Things
People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centred.
You don’t have to like them, but love them anyway!

They are all part of your own family.
They are part of you and you are part of them.
They may not yet know it, but you being wiser,
Love them anyway!

People may project their own ulterior motives onto you,
And accuse you of having them.
Rest safe in the knowledge that the Universe
Knows their hearts as well as yours.
Do good anyway!

If being successful means that we can only win
False friends and real enemies.
Succeed anyway!

The good we do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do it anyway!

What could have taken years of building up,
Can be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway!

People who are in need of our help,
May attack us whilst we are trying to help them.
Help anyway!

Give the world the best that is within you,
And should it be rejected, do not stop giving.
Give anyway!

The Universal Law of Karma ensures that what we send
Into the world, has to return to us.
Give of your best and only the best is sure to return!

Bishop Abel Muzorewa
African Spiritual and Political Leader

Sorry, dear Friend, to have upset you in this way. I will remove the poem and if need be, i.e. if it cannot be deleted, replace it with an item that - I hope - will be more to your liking.

All the best - Aquarius

It was possible to delete the message with the offending item, so I did. If you never saw it and would like to make up your own mind about it, the link below will take you to it:

Default Message From White Eagle

From the StarLink of the White Eagle Lodge January 2012 comes a message from White Eagle:

‘Your loved ones are not dead and they have not gone from you. In spirit there is no separation. Contact with your loved one is always waiting for you through the power of thought, through the power of meditation. You have to develop within yourself a consciousness of the eternity of life. You need to love God, so that you know that God, being love and having all love for you, and you having love for God. In God’s consciousness there is no death. Your loved one is living in that love and in your spirit. Your loved one is with you.’

Thank you, dear Hazel, your kind and loving words are much appreciated.

Did you notice that the poem of ‘The Nothing People’ contains the same kind of warning as the parable of the barren fig tree? If that sounds interesting, you might like to read my insights into this theme by following the link below:

‘The Barren Fig Tree’

With love - Aquarius

Default The Edge

The Edge
‘Come to the edge,’ He said.
They said: ‘We are afraid.’
‘Come to the edge,’ He said.
They came …
He pushed them …
And they flew!

Default The Most Beautiful People

‘The most beautiful people are those who have experienced defeat, suffering, struggle and loss and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. These things do not just happen, they have to grow within us.’ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
