Seeking out Inspiration

Wanted to share some quotes that have inspired me today. Inspiration comes not from waiting for it to show, but from seeking it out. Today I seek out inspiration and am inspired by what showed up.

A few quotes by Alphonse de Lamartine

  1. “A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.”
  2. “Experience is the only prophecy of wise men.”
  3. “Habit with it’s iron sinews, clasps us and leads us day by day.”
  4. “Limited in his nature, infinite in his desire, man is a fallen god who remembers heaven.”
  5. “Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.”
  6. “Private passions tire and exhaust themselves, public ones never.”
  7. “Providence conceals itself in the details of human affairs, but becomes unveiled in the generalities of history.”
  8. “Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated.”
  9. “The people only understand what they can feel; the only orators that can affect them are those who move them.”
  10. But my most favorite of all…

  11. “To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.”

So what I am inspired by is that I can be larger then I know myself to be. I aspire to be infinite in my desires and be closer to God in my actions. I can love for love’s sake…

What is the Message…

This morning I woke up from another vivid dream. I had been dreaming about SM & I was having a conversation with him as to why I saw him the way I did. In the dream SM never seemed to be interested in answering what I wanted to know, it was almost as if he would only explain what his purpose was. He explained that he wants his wife, TR, to know that everything is going to be OK. That his passing is as has to be & that there is nothing wrong.

See SM & TR were newlyweds and at the time of his passing they were only married 6-8 months. Of course loosing her newlywed husband is a tragic experience for TR & I asked SM “How am I going to tell her in the mist of this grief?”

SM replied “don’t worry she will contact you when it’s time!” This kind of gave me a sigh of relief – since I didn’t have to find the right moment to tell her.

When I awoke from the dream I felt a great sense of peace & tranquility. See on the day of the accident I went down to see TR and I was there consoling her for a few hours. I knew I had to tell her how I saw SM, but did not dare. I was there for her & I had to consider what her needs were. She cried a lot and kept saying “what am I going to do without SM?”

Then during the funeral services I was holding back the urge to blurt out what I knew. I felt guilty, all that time, that I knew something & said nothing. The funeral service was gigantic – it was not the appropriate time to tell her this! Hundreds of people were there and hundreds more could not be. See SM was a powerful man & he contributed to so many people around the world. He was bigger then life & bigger then I even imagined.

Condolences poured in from all over the world. There even was a conference call, the night previous, for all the people that knew SM, and could not be at his funeral, to express who SM was for them. Interesting enough there more then 100 persons on the call. People from India, Japan, Australia and even New Zealand. That is how big his presence is in this world.

Now, celebrity nudes with this vivid dream, I am at ease knowing that my gut feelings are confirmed – it was not the right time to tell her.

It’s funny, most people (or at least the myths & tv movies) believe that ‘ghosts’ have unfinished business, that is why they hang around. But from my experiences, it is not them – but us – the living who keep them from crossing over. They are complete & it is time for them to go, but we have a hard time letting go. We call them back to this realm.

So anyway, the message that SM wanted TR to know, is that because of her, he can go complete. She fulfills and completes what was not there for him. It was her love for him that allowed him to be fulfilled.

Having been loved and being ‘love’ was important for him in order to complete.

The Soul’s Purpose

I’m still thinking of SM & his passing. He passed February 8th to be exact. I was working in his group to create an event and in the process of creating the event I learned a lot from him. The event is going to start on the 26th and I wanted to back out, because SM would not be there. But you know what – it would not honor SM if I do back out. So therefore I am moving forward anyway. He would have told me to do that anyway.

There are many things that I will have as a memory of him – thanks SM for the generosity – but one thing that he always said, sticks with me the most…

“We as human beings are always given by the little voice that runs in our heads. Do you want to have an extraordinary life? Well then – thank that little voice for sharing and then get on with the task at hand – fulfilling on our soul’s purpose!”

–SM

The task at hand IS fulfilling on our soul’s purpose. We are driven to be bigger then we know ourselves to be. We are driven to wonder what else is out there.

The one thing that I allow to stop me is wondering if I can do it.

Well it’s time to stop wondering and start living larger then I know myself to be. In the memory of SM, I am getting on with my soul’s purpose. And I am taking on being bigger then I know myself to be on this event.

This I do to honor SM’s stand and the space he leaves wide open.

Perception is Key

For the last few days I’ve been wondering why SM’s visitation was so different. I’ve never experienced a spirit present itself like that. In the past they show up in my dreams – never in real life.

But in analyzing this visitation, what I saw that was different is only how I choose to pereceive it. See in the previous visits I’ve choosen to call then dreams or visions, never choosing to consider them to be my reality. I guess you could say that I was in denial that this is my gift. But SM’s visitation was real!

I realized that this is not the first time that the spirit presents itself in a physical way during waking moments. For example in Valmi’s Visit she presented herself as a light energy (aura) in the corner of my room. I chose to say that there way no way that I could have been awake and seeing this. And since it was at night and I woke up from sleeping, I chose to call it a dream.

Im my mother-in-law’s visit, the spirit was a physical breeze and the scent of her favorite flower, the violet, showing up in the middle of the day.

So in SM’s visit, what I experienced was a light energy. This time it was real! I was in a public event; many people around & I saw his soul’s energy leave his body.

I’m starting to accept that it will present itself in so many different unexpected ways.

What there is to do – just accept it – and honor it as the gift it is!

A Change Gonna Come…

Be the change you wish to see in the world!”
– Mahatma Ghandi

Times are changing and lately it seems like they’ve being changing daily!

Most of us are not used to drastic changes happening so quickly.

The stock market’s ebbs & flows no longer with the calmness of a backwoods river but lately it seems to come with the force of a hurricane.

From day to day the stock market deals with 500-600 points dips or gains. Every other day we hear of new record lows at the closing bell. 401k’s, retirement plans, saving are all dwindling down to nothing. People are losing their homes in record numbers.

In the last couple of months the price of gas has gone from $4.65 per gallon to $1.87. Many major retailers are closing their stores and every large industry is now begging to get bailed out. Changes seems to be erratic but most of all change seems to be eminent.

Most of us (including me) deal with change as an unknown and fear it. We see it as a stranger and hide from it, avoid it, and worst of all resist it!

So what is there to do??

Embrace it – Am I crazy!! – What did you say embrace it??

Yes! Change is the only real constant in life and as such there is no avoiding it. But there is no fearing it too! I can adapt to respond to the change. Now the next question that shows up in my head is “What do I have to change when its’ the world that is in disarray? I’m just being affected by it. It’s not up to me.”

Well the first thing that I say needs changing is THAT! Being resigned to the idea that it’s beyond my control. This mindset only leaves me as a victim of my circumstances.

Second thing that I can change is the way that I approach life. Instead of living a life of “expectation” I can come from a world on “Intention.” So for example: I’ve been griping that the government is violation our civil liberties and our right to freedom. I expect these to be my God-given gifts and I expect the government to grant them to me. I would rather be creating an intention of being free and at peace AND being in action to make that exist.

Third, and the most important is seeing myself as part of a bigger picture. Right now in this country, most of us live an individualistic life. We consider ourselves separate from one another and seperate from Source, God, Allah-Blessed be His name (I’ll call them all collectively as God). In this way of thinking, then the things that happen to me are BIG and MY circumstances do seem to be overwhelming and difficult to deal with.

But if I see myself as one with one another, then I can see that all of us are going thru some kind of change – TOGETHER. If I am one with God, then I can see that my problems are nothing and so tiny for God’s hands.

By seeing it this way I am no longer a slave to the ebbs & flows of my circumstances. I am free and at peace to be me and to be the greatness that God intended for me. But most of all I am free to do something about it!

Neale Donald Walsch on his blog says it beautifully.

There’s no reason to hang out in uncertainty or apprehension or fear about the future… Learn how to use change as the greatest thing that has ever happened to you, and how to embrace loss as not loss at all, but gain.”

This, in my opinion, is the only real way to deal with change. So I invite you to try it on and see how it fits for you and accept the flow of life.
