For All the Servants of Love…

Servants of Love

We Choose each other’s company and sit in each other’s embrace.

Come closer friends, to the edge of your seats, so we can glimpse each other’s true face.

We have made pacts and agreements from within,

So don’t imagine that we are merely what you see.

This moment, as we sit together wine in our hands, and flowers in our sleeves….

….We have passage from the seen to the unseen, for we travel alongside the messenger of faith.

We know the way from house to garden; we dwell with jasmines and cypresses.

Every day we enter the meadow and find flowers, newly bloomed….

….We harvest them by the skirtful; and gift them to lovers, everywhere.

So don’t hold back your heart; for we are not thieves

We are safe keepers, we are guardians.

Each breath that we take, carries that flower’s scent like a gentle breeze;

We are the rosebush rooted in the meadow of knowingness.

We’ve filled the world with the scent of that flower, sending a signal:

“Come, we are in this state.”

She detects our scents when we detect hers and though we seem meager,

She renders us grand.

We are the humble servants of Love and we are Love itself, lying in wait…..

All Through Eternity – Rumi Poem

love passion

 

 

Beauty unveils His exquisite form

in the solitude of nothingness;

He holds a mirror to His Face

and beholds His own beauty.

he is the knower and the known,

the seer and the seen;

No eye but His own

has ever looked upon this Universe.

His every quality finds an expression:

Eternity becomes the verdant field of Time and Space;

Love, the life-giving garden of this world.

Every branch and leaf and fruit

Reveals an aspect of His perfection-

The cypress give hint of His majesty,

The rose gives tidings of His beauty.

Whenever Beauty looks,

Love is also there;

Whenever beauty shows a rosy cheek

Love lights Her fire from that flame.

When beauty dwells in the dark folds of night

Love comes and finds a heart

entangled in tresses.

Beauty and Love are as body and soul.

Beauty is the mine, Love is the diamond.

They have together

since the beginning of time-

Side by side, step by step.

 

Deja Vu…Expansion of Consciousness

FB_IMG_1439974154774

Your physical body exists at a specific location in space and time. In order to relocate physically, you have to travel to the new location. Your mind, however, is free to roam to different locations and even to other points in time. In recent decades, remote reveiwing– the mental viewing of remote locations – has been developed into a highly disciplined method of obtaining information from other locations in time and space. This skill of consciousness allows us to be able to further realize our capacity to create our own reality.

 Many people have experienced their own versions of this skill in the form of deja vu, where scenes that you suddenly recognize in your life are scenes that you had previously viewed while in another state of consciousness.Your soul, or inner self, has the capability, not only to see, but to BE in different locations in space and time. Physical life is a projection of consciousness, which appears to be solid, which appears to be fixed in location, and which appears to run along a linear time line.

Solidity, space and time are all projections of consciousness in the theater of life. They are nowhere near as fixed as we have been led to believe.

When a particularly vivid example of deja vu occurs, it is not just the recall of a recent dream, it is more likely to be a real-time connection with your inner self – your complete consciousness – when time and space become flexible.

Your inner self can look into how a plan of action would work out by connecting with the actual event at the time and space location where the event will occur. It can be a little disorienting to be living your regular life and suddenly have a brief connection with your inner self that exists beyond our perception of time and space.

In fact, you can come out of such a contact with your complete, inner self consciousness wondering – just for a split-second – where you are, and what the date is today! Such an experience is an excellent example of the wide-ranging consciousness of your inner self. It has the ability to relocate to and directly experience other locations in space and time.

 As you progress in the development of your consciousness you will acquire more of the attributes of the expanded consciousness of your complete, inner self. Your daily consciousness is a tight focus, a subset, of your complete consciousness. That daily, waking consciousness is now expanding to incorporate more of the capabilities which you already possess within your complete, inner self.

Practices such as meditation and any activities that promote consciousness expansion, will support this type of inner development in accelerating rapidly.

Love is the Doorway to Telepathy

love is here

Our intuition provides us with the power of telepathy, and the one thing that amplifies its powers the most is True Love. True Love is Known. It just IS.  Its beyond reason…Its beyond words…

When we deeply understand and put our utmost faith in each other, then we’re able to connect on a profound spiritual level.

Not only does our consciousness get aligned, but also our subconscious. We are able to tap into our lover’s minds without any effort, and they can do the same.

If you have developed a telepathic connection with someone, then trust me, you will feel every emotion that they feel.

You might have noticed that sometimes you abruptly feel happy without any reason whatsoever, just because your partner is simmering with joy.

This happens because you truly care about them, and that is why you understand and experience things with them on a whole different level.

Telepathy endows a person with incredible powers of perception. Two people who have a telepathic connection can easily perceive if either of them is depressed or lonely.

Why is that? You must’ve heard people in Love saying, “Whatever you feel, I feel “. That’s not just a meaningless sentiment.

There’s a lot of truth to it. Unconditional love bonds two souls together. So, if one of them is undergoing a rough time, the other can feel a crippling and crushing feeling in his/her heart.

Telepathy helps two people to communicate through feelings, thoughts, images, desires and many other ways.

Some people have such developed powers of telepathy that they can even reach out to each other in their dreams.

When we’re immersed in love, we often visualise our lover in our dreams, because we deeply resonate with them. And the best part is that these dreams aren’t just vague, like most of our other dreams. They’re incredibly vivid and mesmerising.

The secret ingredient of telepathy is a firm conviction. You have to honestly believe in love and kindness, and subdue your ego if you wish to develop this otherworldly connection with someone. Disbelief and distrust destroy your ability to love.

 

Practice the things that empower your intuition, such as empathy. Doing so will help you to selflessly love people, and develop a telepathic connection with someone.

People who let their ego rule over their hearts distant themselves from love. Their disillusionment slowly transforms into disconnection that destroys intuition.

Telepathy between hearts is a magnificent thing! Hold on to it if you’ve been fortunate enough to develop it.

Flexibility frees you…

Flexibility is allowing people or things to change when they need to.  This includes allowing the external world to operate as it must without having to ask your permission.  Flexibility is the opposite of rigidity.  It is the ability to feel comfortable about yielding to things you can not control, or that you don’t have the right to control.  It is the ability to respond positively by adapting to changes that happen but are outside your control.  It is being able to let things and people exist in their own way, without attempting to control and direct them.  It is allowing others to control the direction of their own lives without hindering or obstructing their choices.  Flexibility includes not being afraid of having to adapt to new or different circumstances just because they are new or different.

If you are a flexible person, you find it easy to let others control their own life’s direction.  You respond positively when people change path or direction in life, or suddenly decide to do something you consider very different.  As a flexible person, you also know that the world makes changes without asking your permission.  You understand that external circumstances (things outside your control) have the right to change in their own way, and often do.  You find it easy to “go with the flow” and readily adapt when circumstances or other things change around you, or when the external world in general decides to throw you a curve.  You adapt to change in a flexible way because you understand the obligation to let go of control when the external world makes changes in how it operates.

Flexibility comes from understanding at a deep level that it is a basic human right for every person to choose his own direction in life, and to choose when to make changes and take his life in an entirely new or different direction.  This means you have the right to choose when and how to make changes in your own life.  It includes the freedom to change your mind, change your opinions, change your attitudes, change your direction in life.  Feeling free to make changes is an empowering attitude or quality that lets you choose how and when to change anything about yourself or about your life.

To be empowered to decide your own life’s direction and choose when to make changes in your life, you must not be afraid to stand up to well meaning father figures or other figures of authority who rigidly want you to follow a course that they approve of.  Keep in mind that someone’s disapproval is not enough reason for you to change your path or direction in life.  Only you have the real power to determine where to go with your life, and it is your will that decides when it is time to change, and only you can choose the course of your own life.  Realizing you have the right to chart your own course in life makes it easier to choose the direction and the changes that are best for you.

Every human right has two sides to it, namely the right as it applies to you, and the right as you must let it apply to everyone else.  And to be fair, the right must be the same for both.  The consequence of this is that you have the right to determine your life’s direction without interference from others, and others (and the external world and circumstance in general) have the right to determine their life’s direction without interference from you.  The more you recognize this as a basic human right, the easier it will become for you to exert control over your own direction or path in life, and let go of trying to control the direction of other people’s lives, and of circumstances that end up placing you in particular situations.  Understanding the true meaning of this right will help you stand up to rigid people who try to keep you from making changes in your life, and it will also help you understand your obligation to let others choose when and how to make changes in their lives.  You will find it easier to let other people control their own life’s direction, and this will increase your own flexibility.  It will help you to “go with the flow” of circumstances that you know are outside your right to control.

Since you know you have the right to control only what is internal to you, you also know you have the obligation to let go of control when the external world makes changes in how it operates.  This understanding is what allows you to adapt to external changes in a flexible way.

If you are emotionally inflexible, or rigid, you don’t like change and you tend to have trouble allowing the outside world and the people around you to make changes.  This can make you heavy-handed, bossy and authoritarian with those around you.  You sometimes browbeat or otherwise hinder someone you care about from using his own will to operate his own life.  As an inflexible person, you are afraid of change because you are afraid of the unknown, and you will do almost anything to avoid the unfamiliar.

Love IS All…

mothers-day-vintage-graphic-graphicsfairy010

Love is the magic word that holds the universe together.

It is both an emotion and something ephemeral that lives like a fire’s glow.

Or the pink light on the clouds after the sun has set.

It is alive and yet, indefinable.

It causes the heart to beat more rapidly, feelings to show….

People to write, sing, dance and become totally immersed in its hold.

Love can beckon coyly, or flaunt itself with wanton abandon.

Love can live and grow seemingly forever, or vanish in a fleeting moment

When we least suspect…

And in the twilight of our years reflecting on the life we have lived….

It is the love which colors every turn and twist of our memory.

And when we pass from this earthly plane,

It will be the love that will light our soul on its journey home…..

By Alana Fairchild from “Journey of Love”, page 131.

 

 

How Compassionate Are You?

DeadLoved

Compassion is a tender and sympathetic form of caring. It is a warmth of heart that allows you to put yourself in another person’s shoes and give you a strong sense of what he is feeling. Compassion literally means that you feel the other person’s passion. It allows you to tune in to what is going on in someone’s life, so you can understand what he is going through. Being able to feel what another person feels in this way, allows you to help him and care for him in the best way possible.

When someone says “I really feel for you” it means he is compassionate toward you. Sympathy is the particular type of compassion you feel when you reach out to someone who is having a bad time, or who is in emotional or physical pain. But you are also being compassionate when someone is having a good time and is perhaps feeling elated, and you reach out and feel what he is feeling. This type of compassion is usually called identifying with someone or having an affinity with him. The Spanish word “simpatico” is a more accurate word than compassion because it is used in both of these types of situations.

Moreover, you are a sensitive person because you can tune in to who people are, and a caring person because you are responsive to their needs.

There are two elements to compassion: The first element is the ability to be compassionate, to be warm hearted, tender and sympathetic. The second element is understanding and recognizing what the other person is feeling. Just being a compassionate person gives you the ability to tune in to someone and be aware of what he is feeling. Being tuned in to someone in this way also helps you recognize what is the most compassionate thing to do in his particular circumstance. Your compassion allows you to understand how and when to reach out to him.

If you have trouble being compassionate, you find it difficult to tune in to what others are feeling. You tend to be somewhat apathetic and unemotional. Your friends would not consider you the most supportive person in the world, and you are probably not the first person they come to for advice.

If you would like to become a more compassionate person, learn to become more supportive of someone close to you. Purposely choose a specific thing she wants to do, which does not particularly interest you, and support her in that. If you think her project is unwise, you may decide to express that opinion, but if she still wants to do it, give her all the emotional support you can. Being supportive is good practice in being compassionate because it helps you understand the difference between true support, which is emotionally assisting someone in doing what she wants to do, and conditional support, which is supporting someone only when her project also interests you.

Compassion also comes from learning to understand what people are going through. Practice this by becoming a more empathetic and understanding person, by mentally putting yourself in the other person’s shoes, and seeing things from his point of view. This helps you identify with his situation, feelings and motives, and makes you aware of what he is going through. If you have a genuine interest in understanding someone, you are naturally willing to put some energy into finding out what he is all about, and this automatically improves your ability to be compassionate.

Practice listening to people’s problems and talking things out with them. Become a good counselor and advisor. This will develop your compassion by helping you see things from the other person’s point of view.

Also, develop a desire to grow by learning from others. Put some energy into developing a lasting friendship with someone you can learn something from, or teach something to. The potential for growth creates an exciting and dynamic connection between you, that is very conducive to developing a greater level of compassion for both of you.
