Yesterday, when I was watching the news, my True Self, who I call Eagle, came in.
Remember that you live in an experience world. When you have judgments about the news, you are involved in the drama of other people, and you become an actor on the stage. When you choose sides, you are involved in the drama as well.
OK, I understand, but should I avoid watching the news?
That’s up to you, of course, you have free will. But you might consider looking at the news differently.
You know that experience is never “good” or “bad”. It’s just experience and, as such, perfect because it leads to more wisdom and increased conscious awareness. So, when you are able to accept that everything you hear and see in the news is perfect, because it is experience, you are an observer. And, a true observer has no judgments.
If you want to become an observer, looking at the news without judging is an excellent training.
Have a great weekend!
This morning on my daily walk with Boofie, I was playing with my thoughts about “thinking”.
I know all thoughts create or, to put it differently: “all of our thoughts have vibrations that attract what we broadcast”.
My True self, who I call Eagle, came in immediately:
All of your thoughts create your personal reality. Negative and positive thoughts always come from the thinking mind. Negative thoughts create experiences you don’t like, and positive thoughts create so called “good” experiences. However, both are just what they are: “EXPERIENCES”. And all experiences lead to wisdom and more conscious awareness.
Only when you think with the mind of your heart, you create balance, harmony and perfection.
Have a harmonious, exciting and perfect weekend.
This morning on my walk in the hills with our dog Boofie, my friend Eagle showed up.
Eagle is the name I have given to my True Self, who lives in my heart. Most of the time she stays on the background, but today she just started communicating with me. I talk about “SHE”, because I feel her energy as female right now. She does not talk to me the same way as the Archangels talk to my wife and partner Marilyn as a channeler. No, the “speaking” I hear is more a kind of feeling, an “intuitive knowing”.
Anyhow, Eagle asked me to involve her in my writings when that is appropriate, because she has a lot of information for people. Of course, I agreed.
Eagle is very important to me. She is my True Self, my best Friend, my guide, my consultant and advisor. I gave her the name Eagle, because that name represents for me what she is. She is powerful, she has dignity. She lives in our world, but soars also close to the higher realms. She is part of our world, but at the same time she observes our world as a spectator. She is a kind of interface between Earth and the higher realms. Many indigenous people regard the Eagle as a messenger of the Beings of the Light.
I asked Eagle if she had a message today. Yes, she said: “the message for today is that peace is balance. Peace is not an agreement between enemies or opposite forces, but the acknowledgement of the unity of good and bad, light and darkness, love and fear, ego and shadow, yin and yang”.
So, now you know a little bit more about my friend Eagle. Have a great day.
Before my daily walk in the hills with our dog Boofie, I read a quote from Henry Miller: “Don’t look for miracles, you yourself are a miracle.”
I love that quote, because it feels so good to be a miracle.
I didn’t want to keep that thought all to myself, so in the hills I said: “Listen Boofie, maybe you won’t believe it, but we are miracles.”
He looked at me as if he would say: “I know that!” Of course, he was right. For animals, everything is a miracle. Only human beings use their logical mind, and because the logical mind defines everything that it can understand as natural, miracles become automatically supernatural.
Fortunately, we also have a heart, and the heart loves miracles. Isn’t it a miracle that we can fall in love, that we can forgive, that we can create children, relationships, and art. When we start living from our hearts we become living miracles. Boofie is already a living miracle, but I don’t tell him that, because he knows it already
This morning I walked with our dog Boofie in the hills again. It was a bright, fresh morning. When we reached a more or less deserted area, I started doing my exercises while Boofie was reading the “K-9 Morning News”. By reading the smells, Boofie knows exactly which dogs have been there already and which wild animals roamed around there during the night and early morning.
After this ritual, Boofie and I have our meditation walk. When I walk, I just allow thoughts to pop up. This morning I was playing with my thoughts about “All Is ONE”, because I felt ONENESS with everything around me at that moment. We quietly walked over the grass between the trees, and then, something beautiful happened: I started seeing myself in the trees, the plants, the rocks, and the California Poppies now blooming in all their glory. Not that I saw a picture of me in the trees and rocks, but I knew that the trees, the rocks, and all beings around me could feel me the same way as I could feel them. All cells of my body must have the same feeling when they become aware of the fact that we are one, that they are me and I am them. Yes, for me “feeling” is the key to ONENESS.
This morning I walked with our dog Boofie in the hills, when I suddenly became aware of the fact that I was not walking Boofie at all. He was walking me. My body followed him, but my mind was somewhere else. I experienced again that my father and teacher were talking about me. My teacher told my father that there was a problem. Half of the time in class, he said, I did not pay any attention to his teachings, because I was drifting away.
Actually, I am still that way. I love dreaming, and when I have to wait somewhere or when I am bored I automatically travel with my imagination in space and time. But, I can also consciously use my imagination to investigate things or to travel to other times and places.
Einstein already told us that knowledge could bring us from A to B, but that imagination will take us everywhere. I call imagination “traveling without limitations”, because we are not limited by time, space, our logical mind, preconceived ideas, or certain beliefs. It actually is the precursor of CREATION.
This morning I went with Boofie (our dog) to the Dog Spa. I had to wait half an hour, so I visited the card shop on the other side of the street. I walked along the cards, and suddenly one card with the quote from an unknown writer drew my attention. “There is a Bit of Magic in Every Thing”, it read.
I bought the card and returned to the street to investigate the magic in Every Thing.
The first thing I saw was an old woman who was quietly sitting on the street, waiting for donations. I took some money from my wallet and put it in her box, while the old woman looked up at me. At that moment, I received a tremendous gift. I looked into a pair of extremely beautiful, extremely wise and loving eyes. Our souls had recognized each other instantaneously, and that was MAGICAL.
Yes, I believe there is a little bit of magic in Every Thing, but sometimes it is much more than a little bit.
This morning it was raining, but Boofie (our dog) and I went walking anyhow, after all I’m from the Netherlands. In the hills, we met Leila, a beautiful female dog. Boofie liked her immediately, and started playing. We walked together for some time. Although it was raining, it felt like the sun was shining, because everybody was happy. It is all a matter of focus, I thought. Children splashing on the street puddles, don’t focus on the rain. The simply have fun, because they are their own sun (that rhymes). They shine, even when it rains.
On the way to the car I jumped in a puddle, splashing the water in all directions. Boofie looked surprised at me. I understand, I was surprised myself. I was a little boy for a while.
During my walk with Boofie (our dog) this morning, the word “PLAYING” popped into my mind.
Some years ago, I followed the Mastering Alchemy Programs of Jim Self, and Jim never talks about working. Almost everything he is doing, he calls PLAYING. So, during his lecture he was playing with his students, during the night he was playing on the other side of the veil. When he gave us homework, he gave us ideas or material to play with.
I LIKE THAT VERY MUCH!!!
So, when I started my walk with Boofie this morning, it was no regular walk anymore. It was the part of the day on Earth destined for playing with Boofie. It was amazing how different everything became. The houses, the cars, gardens, the hills, the woods, etc., became a part of the STAGE on which I was playing with Boofie. I saw also a lot of other players, but most of them did not seem to know that they were playing.
Using PLAYING instead of walking, working, travelling etc. makes that everything becomes more fun. Having a lifetime on Earth in order to gain experience is boring compared to gaining experience by playing. Did you ever see how a little child is gaining experience? INDEED: by PLAYING! Everything is new, everything is fascinating and everything stays new, because everything is changing constantly.
I realize that I now have been playing with my thoughts.
