Love what is given by your nature
Do not sell your liberty
To save another’s sensibility
We shall arrive at the moment of reason
In the course of our soul’s season
Deep within is our divinity
Quarry it in your silence
Voice it in your parlance
Let this treasure gild your nature
Let its force be your reliance
Simplicity serves our common purpose
Patience is architect of variety
Harmony an agent for peaceful society
Stride confidently into a new day
Leaving yesterday to history
Regret illustrates discontent
And the need for true affinity
Leave arrogance to its vanity
Lift your chin to the orbit of the sun
Let you light make its mark upon the galaxy
New horizons stretch out wide
To meet inner eye expansion
Free of fearful gravitation
A star borne in the heart of humanity
Rejoicing with innumerable variation
Emotional congestion thwarts love, brooding and snarling, it lives in the shadows of fear, vengeance and betrayal. This towering babel of infractions of love, finds its foundations in the souls of men, its walls in his heart, and its smeared windows in his confused mind.
Attachment to form is the architect of pain. This multi-storey self trembling under the seismic activity of a fraught imagination and eventually crumbles beneath its igneous layer of egotism.
Life is governed by inexorable conditions. The world springs from the nature of our soul. In its pure state, the soul is fluid and transient. In its unnatural state, it is in the stasis of self, buttressed by beliefs and expectation, providing the soundtrack and narration for its masquerade as it parades through the apparent world. Desire is the float that carries the self aloft but fear halts its procession.
Fear is the harbinger that warns the soul of moral decline. Fear demands the penalty for transgressions are paid. Progress of the soul is not by linear procession, but by ascension of state. The egoist self lives in ignorance of this from human existence to human existence until the monolith of pain becomes too cumbersome to bear. The conditions of egoist thought and action lie within the soul. The ego subscribes to birth and death, it is governed by time. The soul is governed by the Law of eternal Being. The soul must pay for infractions caused by the wilful ego upon the whole. It is aided in this by the Law of Cause & Effect.
The world mirrors the soul’s state of consciousness. The ego is ignorant of this and projects its faults onto others. The truth living in the soul, known or unknown, is of unity. All life is one. Therefore, all humans are shareholders of transgressions, blame and vice. We are here because we are liable in making amends for our past actions that have imparted upon the whole. When the soul becomes aware of its reason for being in human form, its ascension of state accelerates and its moral nature overthrows the false master.
However, this metamorphosis is not without suffering. The mirror of truth is an unwelcome intruder to the ego, while it is the window of freedom for the soul. The inlet of vice must exit through the outlet of suffering. Denial of feeling the effect of wrongdoings eventually overpowers the capricious ego and turns the finger of the projectionist firmly inward. The ascension of the soul marks the decline of ego. The ego’s surrender marks the maturity of the soul indicating its maturity and awareness of its union with all life. Then the star seed of human consciousness shines brightly amongst the firmament of men so that the performance can match his promise.

Future projection can be mentally and physically exhausting. A constant pull to achieve more, leaves you feeling as if there are not enough hours in the day. This is particularly the case if you are bombarded with messages and status symbols from the world around you. These messages give advice on how to look good, what you should wear, how to spend your money and what you need to achieve happiness.
When a person is unsure about their choices, they are heavily influenced by the world they inhabit to provide answers. Personal choices such as relationships must live up to a list of criteria. A relationship is acceptable if it lives up to the expectation of society. A feeling of discontent arises when a relationship breaks down and blame is directed at the other person for not conforming to the ideal that society dictates.
If you are not sure what brings joy and contentment, you can be easily led into other people’s perception of happiness. This leaves you dependent on outside influences to answer any questions about relationships and other matters in your life. If you are out of touch with who you really are, it is difficult to have a fulfilling life.
To tune into your true requirements for a happy fulfilling life experience, be still and ask for the truth to be revealed from higher self. We are all unique and we have diverse ways to express feelings of joy. What works for one person may not work for another. You may feel exhilaration when sky diving, but to someone who doesn’t like heights, it would be a scary experience.
Allow each person to be as they are, to act in a manner they wish, and to see the world with their own eyes. Life experience teaches you what you enjoy and what you don’t enjoy. Focus on the feeling an experience gives you. If it makes you scared or upset, leave it alone, if it makes you joyful, stay with it. Feeling determines the quality of your experiences. You may participate in an activity because it is recommended by a friend or magazine article, but you find it unfulfilling. Trust your feeling body, it is your feedback mechanism from the universal field. Sometimes we focus on an upcoming event and how wonderful it will be. When the time arrives, the feeling is an anti-climax. Trying to project feeling unto a future event uses vast amounts of energy so that the event can never live up to the promise.
How you feel now is crucial to what you are attracting into your life. Focus on the feeling within, let go of stories and dramas playing out over and over in your mind. Feel the feeling behind them. Feel the pain, grief or fear that continually attracts unwanted experiences. Feelings of fear focus on creating unhappy experiences. Feelings of joy attracts joyful experiences.

The fairy bride picked the lock
And tiptoed through the summer wood
She gave no mind to life behind
Or shadows thrown by bad or good
She gave no mind to wrong or right
Or screeching call of owls at night
She listened for the haunting cries
That called her from her blushing bud
Ferns unfurl a tickled fronds
Laughing at her slightest brush
Dewdrops glisten with green eyes
Meadows sway with lightest hush
A captive note arrests her breath
Dreamers weave intricate maze
Lithe and quick she shines the light
Illuminating shadow glades
She gives no mind to life and limb
Or captor’s hiss from deep within
Her purity will seize the thread
Dangling loose from dreamer’s web
She spins a silver spool of light
To catch the rays of stars at night
Now innocence can spread its wings
Making haste for freedom flight
She gives no mind to where they fly
Or how tall grasses lift her high
She clicks the lock and in she glides
All nature hails the fairy bride
Emotional maturity is necessary if you are to be part of a loving relationship based on mutuality rather than dependency. If the feelings are mutual, the input is equal. The initial step towards emotional maturity is honesty. Do you love like a child needing attention, praise and reassurance? Do you have a desperate need to hold onto the other person for your emotional security? Do you constantly end relationships because you find faults with the other person? Do you crave the excitement of a new relationship?
Connect with the universal field of awareness to know the truth. The truth helps you move forward. Accept your tendencies in a relationship without judgement or blame. Ask for truth to be revealed in a loving, compassionate way.
If you are easily manipulated in a relationship, or if you tend to be the one who is in control, take time out to develop emotional maturity. Remember, the source of love is within you, not in the relationship. Love comes from you and is expressed in relation to others.
Emotional immaturity is searching for love outside you.
Emotional maturity comes from realising you are the source of love.
If you are at the end of a relationship, or in a separation period, use the space wisely. Time out from being part of a couple allows you to focus on meeting your own needs. Set your intention to connect to your true source of power. Keep repeating your intention every day until you begin to open to the extraordinary power of higher self.
Concentrate on your breathing patterns. Watch the breath as it moves in and out. Breathing happens, you don’t need to force it. It is natural to breathe. Also, it is natural to love. You don’t need to force it or strive for it. Focus on your heart. Feel a warm glow igniting your heart centre. Allow it to expand throughout your whole body and energy field. Practising this on a regular basis lifts your energy vibration and connects you to people and situations that are in harmony with love.
The habitual pattern to look for love on the outside takes time to change. You may find you alternate between sourcing love within yourself, to needing validation and praise from others. Allow whatever frequency you are on to be as it is. Accept what you are feeling now and keep your intention strong for self-acceptance.
When you are accustomed to needing another person for love, whether this is a partner, a parent or a friend, it is magnificent to feel love’s pure energy arising within. It is then you realise the truth, you are love. You are not dependent on others to feel love. Open to this powerful energy that is your life force and allow it to permeate every part of you. Let the overflow expand into the hearts of those around you.
Be the love you wish to receive.

When we seek to separate anything from the whole it sets in motion the Law of Cause & Effect. Dualism underpins the condition of man, and both ends of the pole are always seeking to balance. If something tips the balance at one end there must be compensation at the other end to restore equilibrium.
The soul of the world is whole and refuses to be fragmented. Acting through the subjective self, man seeks pleasure of a thing without the pain. Contrivance to sever the sensual from the moral is trying to dodge the effect after the cause. It is trying to get one end of the pole without the other. The Law of Cause & Effect steadily counteracts any impunity. The Law is infallible. The uninitiated may say this Law does not touch them because they have no knowledge of such things. Conscious or unconscious the Law works for everyone alike. If the lie is on the lips the condition is in the soul. The subjective self is mortal but soul energy is immortal and pays the cost for infraction of the Law during human experience.
When we act from Being, or the whole, we add value to the world. When we act in self-interest we subtract from the world. Conscience balances the scales of right and wrong. Justice balances the scales of good and evil. Where there is subtraction at one end, there must be addition at the other.
Being, the whole and source of Life, is a perfect equation. There is no compensation or comparative required in the absolute of Being.
The soul must carry the burden of responsibility for inequality in the man. Too much thinking, must be balanced by feeling & emotions. Turbulent thought is fuelled by turbulent emotion. Fear and desire is the see-saw of emotional imbalance. Craving and aversion are poles of agitated thinking.
Fear is the emotional equivalent of aversion; desire is the emotional equivalent of craving. Weakness of mind allows emotion to overpower and cause imbalance, thinking becomes distorted by desire causing obsessive thought about the subject. Weakness in the feeling body, allows mental activity to reduce its immense power to a battery to fuel thinking. The stronger the desire, the more it impacts upon the mind, interfering in the natural flow. Desire produces thoughts of craving and needing something or someone to be happy. There are always two ends in polar thinking, at one end is desire, at the other end is fear. Fear weighs down desire by producing thoughts of aversion, lack, or worry causing agitation.
The effect of dualism in man is caused by attachment to form. This results in the need to identify with thought form as ‘who I am’ and the associated likes and dislikes.
The world one experiences are the effect created by the scales of emotion and thought. The world exists to allow true Being to become conscious. It is a tough exterior to protect the seed of consciousness until it is ready to comply with universal law. The world created through emotion and thought reflects the soul’s state of consciousness.
There can be no premature ripening or cracking of the shell until the soul’s energy is a vibratory match for universal source energy.
