Impeccability


Leslie Temple-Thurston brought out a CD called Impeccability – it is inviting, calm and full of truth. The word – impeccability – is quite a loaded word and indicates, to me, a way of life: Have you ever felt out of sorts with your living space? Hark those words that your mother might have spoken about keeping your room clean! There is much to be said for a tidy living space.

If you do not feel good about whom you are, whether you realise it or not, you will project an unseen image of low self esteem and this will only lure people who wish to lay prey to your loss of self-worth.

Ask yourself the question:
“Does this truly work for me or not?” Now, based on your level of consciousness, your answer might not be the same as your neighbour’s, and that is not to be judged.
It is not about who is right or wrong, it is always a question of: “Is this workable for me in light of my personal growth, or not?” This personal growth is always spiritual no matter what the situation, because that is all there is. So the choice you make is one of workability for you – God is not going to judge your choice – Divinity does not judge. Your choice is your own, just be aware that all thoughts and actions (no matter what they are) have their own set of consequences. So the question is simple: Are you prepared to accept the possible and probable consequences (positive and negative) of the given situation? Think about this, it will be wise to do so.
There are many issues in the media that simply serve to reinforce our own perceptions of life and diffuse our spiritual sight.
Spiritual sight is not the insight of a guru or master on a mountaintop; it can be, but I am not intentionally giving it a religious or esoteric meaning here. It is the second sight you acquire to be able to witness your own actions, but not to judge them.

It is when you expect things in return that people, including friends, can disappoint you.

So many times I have had the question about the validity of past symbols in our modern era. This includes religious and esoteric symbols of healing and knowledge.
I refer now directly to those lovelies who used to be on board with bright new ideas, but lately have withdrawn their light, because of the fear of change.
I say to those who refuse to change that GOD IS CHANGE – AND THAT IS THE ONLY CONSTANT.
Then there is also the use of symbolism and ceremony, which is a good thing to use when you want to celebrate an emotional victory or to signify the breaking away from/of something, such as a ceremonial dance or simply the burning of a piece of paper with some words or symbols written on it to signify the end of something in your life. It is healthy to do this, as the situation creates an energy that results in a particular mindset, so do not scoff at it for it has great value. It is simply something that is tangible to us and serves to give it concrete meaning.
The goal here is to continuously move away from situations that produce negative thought patterns (like mulling/worrying over something or someone) and negative imagery (like violence on television) and distance yourself from willingly taking part in negative ego-talk (like arguments and ego-puffing – a defensive behaviour to protect the ego from imagined insult). It is extremely tempting to indulge in drama; the small ego thrives on this.

As within, so without.
Quaint words you might say, but oh so true. It is astonishing to think how many straightforward answers there are to life, but they are simply ignored as quaint words and phrases, never to be taken seriously or deemed as too silly and direct to have any real bearing on the way we run our lives or how our governments rule our countries.
Herein lies the awkward silence of truth recognised, but ignored for the benefit of psychological comfort.
The age-old question of how we as a species are going to survive given all the signs to the contrary linger on almost everybody’s mind. The only way we will achieve domestic harmony and international peace – for the most part – would be for, at least, most people to agree on a single concept regarding our outlook on life.  
That agreement is none other than a spiritual one. Whether you believe in a god or follow whatever type of religion or spiritual path, or not, is pointless if no one will be left around to continue these beliefs. Whether you feel yourself to be spiritually minded or not, is so totally not the point, it is the basis of our existence as humans and Divinity’s experience as Humanity.  Having respect for different beliefs and people of other cultures is paramount to our survival. You might think yourself above this and pride yourself in your accomplishment of giving other people their own space; this is a sign of stagnation and should be guarded against. To think that you would ever stop growing and experiencing, even beyond your human form, is right up there in the cuckoo’s nest – not only in the nest, but well hidden under mommy cuckoo.  
When you begin to sense that integrity in all things is the most important attribute in life irrespective of your belief structure, then you have mastered a great feat. The only thing remaining now is to implement it. And how to do this? The answer is simple, yet complex in our way of life: Do unto others, as you would have them do onto you. Although a simple sentence, it is a complex concept for most. How on earth is humanity going to do this? It goes against the rules of our civilised way of life. Think about it…
Even our ancient prophets and also today’s prophets had/have issues with this. For most it would be an impossibility to achieve given our current world order. There is not enough trust and honesty you might say. This is true for now, but if we wish to survive as a species, then there is no alternative. What to do then? Realise who you are, even if the full picture will be hidden from you.
You are a spiritual being of great glory and incomprehensible grandness, all of humanity is.
“Those who wish to wait in their choice, thinking, is this real? will have a harder time making any kind of decision. Whereas we have told you that God works slowly and that you have plenty of time to do this and that, here is one subject that’s now at hand, even in this room… even as you read. You’re not alone in this. Have you noticed that governments are having to wrestle with the same thing? So are corporations. So is organized religion on Earth! It’s all around you, and at some point you have to take notice, and ‘connect the dots’,”… …“as it describes a Human in recognition of a situation.”
“Some are asking, ““What am I going to do with this question?”” If it’s true that you’re eternal and that you’re only here for a short time, hiding in duality, then the real test is for you to find out if this is actually so! This is a good start. Unfortunately, there will be no empirical proof for you, as there is in 4D science with other questions of physics. Instead there will be interdimensional proof… all around you. Will you let your cells talk to you about this? They know. Will you let your emotional-self marry the intellectual-self and give you an answer? It requires that you let go of old paradigms and ask God, ““Please tell me what it is I should know.”” Then within free choice, it’s up to you to decide if any of this is spiritual fact or not.”
Quoted from the Kryon Channelling: Perceptions of Masterhood II.
You can choose to read the above words as hooey and esoteric jargon, or place value in the meaning it conveys to humanity’s continued existence.

We have a responsibility to ourselves.

Belief vs Knowing (2)

Quoted from a piece that was written by Lee Carrol in the 10th Kryon book about channelling…
"Channeling, by its basic definition, is actually the way that all scriptures on Earth were written, the Holy Bible among them. Think about it. When you stop to consider who wrote the Bible, you begin to realize that Humans did. When you then further examine how that all came to be, you begin to understand how channeling worked to bring us spiritual energies back then and perhaps continues to fit into ongoing spiritual information today.
After the death of Christ, the man called Saul became the apostle Paul and a follower. After he had his spiritual experience on the road to Damascus with an Angel (who some say was Christ), he was a changed man. With his newfound excitement – and while in prison for his beliefs – he then wrote letters to friends in Ephesia, to his friend Timothy, to the Galactians, and Corinthians, among others. He was a highly spiritual man, one who founded many Christian churches and helped guide the doctrine, but when he was writing letters to friends, he probably had no idea that his words would be seen someday as the holy word of God.
Long after Paul’s death, his letters were discovered and slowly became scripture. So, you might ask, what was it that made simple letters to friends become Holy Scripture? The answer is that it was the energy of the words and the profundity of the information, as seen and examined by other Humans of the faith. This is channeling at its best!
About 1,400 years ago, the prophet Muhammad had a similar experience. He received information directly from an angel, and it spawned the nation of Islam, a huge spiritual belief system on the planet today. By the way, before you go to the next thought, I’d like to remind you of the prophet’s basic message: unity! On the record is the fact that this great prophet was to unify the tribes of the Arabs and give them one God, the God of Israel! I tell you this to remind you that in only 1,400 years, you get to see what men of power have done to a divine message that you might not be as familiar with as you are with our Western religions.
The Pope, representing more than one billion Catholics on the planet (almost a sixth of the world’s population), also channels (but don’t tell him that). The church authorizes a system where he sits in the “Chair of St. Peter” (a Vatican relic) and gives spiritual information. This information, according to ancient church doctrine, is absolutely infallible at the moment the Pope gives it (not later after processing), and comes directly from God. The process is called Excathedra (Latin for “from the chair”) and it’s the Pope… channeling! Charismatic Christians have a real-time information system called Glossolalia, or “speaking in tongues”, whereby one person gives a message in a worship service in a strange language that they don’t know, and another will often stand and interpret it. When it’s not a show (sometimes it is), these messages are uplifting, and are accepted as messages from God –channeling, once again.
The actual definition of channeling is ““the word of Spirit (or God) as given to a Human or Humans for their enlightenment and information.”” In recorded history, it was often given by a messenger-angel who started the conversation with “Fear not.” (Own insert: I always wondered about that until I realised that having an inter-dimensional creature unexpectedly show up, walking through walls, might be a very frightening experience!) Those two words also carry a larger message: An angel of God will never give you a message of fear. It’s often one of liberation, escape, fulfilment, action instructions, or just plain joy! Today’s channeling messages haven’t changed in this respect, in that they’re still often given by an angelic entity who first speaks of the love of God.”
What has caused some of the greatest struggles in history on earth? Spiritual arrogance! The notion that only a handful of certain people have been picked out who qualify for redemption is what has been behind murders, massacres, vengeance, retaliation and wars. Our ideas about whom and what God is has caused more pain and suffering than anything else within humanity. Whether you read the Bhagavad-Gita, the Book of Mormon, the I Ching, the Talmud, the Yoga-sutras, etc,etc,etc, does not qualify you to condemn another or relegate their belief to a blasphemy, just because it does not agree in totality with your own. There is nothing wrong with having different interpretations. Why haggle over the meaning of words in the Quar’an or what the Bible says? Have we truly listened to what our holy books are saying or are we content with the watered down interpretations given us by so-called experts? The basic message of all the scriptures is the same; it is the interpretation that differs from culture to culture. Enrich your knowledge and read, but I caution you to read with an open mind and an attitude that will prevent you from becoming a slave to what a certain book says. People, even those who are divinely inspired, still write books by their own hand and people have their own thoughts about things and interpret things in a way they are able to understand.
You can only ever be Love by approaching EVERYTHING with love.
Think of the arrogance displayed by some people in the work place, does it get them anywhere? It most certainly does not inspire respect. You are very susceptible to becoming arrogant during your spiritual journey; the temptation to think yourself superior to another person or culture or nation is very subtle in the sense that you will probably not even notice this arrogance until someone points it out to you. Arrogance is sometimes so blinding that the person, culture or nation would never believe you even if you did point it out. Think of the self-importance that countries have heaped upon themselves because of the international aid that they provide (if only that aid was as large as their arms budgets). Even gestures of love have become a platform of arrogance. A spiritual master knows that arrogance and pride is the downfall of humanity. Everybody suffers from a bit of arrogance and pride now and again, even our most revered spiritual leaders, the point is not to judge yourself, but to be able to recognise this and correct your behaviour. Even so, there will always be those who will only judge each other by what they deem as their worst actions and see those people as unworthy or worse yet, a people that should be pitied and led toward the right path.
As stated in the Bible, in the book of Jacob, you should never say that it was God that tempted you, because God cannot be tempted and God does not lead anybody into temptation; because people lead themselves into temptation through their own desires.
Belief creates behaviour.
I once met a woman who placed great value in her spiritual knowledge. She was brought up in the Hindu belief and also displayed great appreciation for the more new age beliefs of e.g. the power of crystals, had studied Energy Healing and believed in regression therapy.
She cornered me one day and sat me down and we had a wonderful discussion about these things. She stated that she would truly want to just have one day without any seeming worries, and to be fancy free. The one thing I very soon noticed was that, even though she displayed an open mind about these spiritual topics, she was tied down by her beliefs. It is good and necessary to have beliefs, but not to the extent that would lead one into an obscurity of worrying. My goodness, can you imagine? Running to the esoteric store to find a particular crystal or incense that you must have now or the world will come to an end. The same goes for a person who would be going to church or join a monastery simply to avoid going to hell. The concept of hell and the consequent use of it as a tool to get people to obey their spiritual superiors is not part of what The-All-That-Is is, but it is your choice to experience that if you wish.
Being too caught up in the details of a belief structure, or basing your way of life on it to such an extent that you feel you hardly have room to breathe, is a sure-fire recipe for disappointment and disillusion and will only lead to frustration and unhappiness.
Don’t get me wrong – following traditions can be very rewarding in itself. It is foolhardy to poo-poo something that has meaning to another, but that does not mean that because you might wind a turban around your head every morning and hum to a crystal that you will achieve spiritual enlightenment (where am I going to find a turban at this time on a Sunday afternoon?), or by going to church every Sunday, God forgives you for being an absolute doofus to other people during the week and so we save the earth from eternal damnation. Good heavens, no!
Life is like soup – there are complex chemical reactions taking place to produce the various flavours and textures.
You are as much part of the soup as anybody else.
Seriously though, if you would like to read more about the soup theory, the meaning of ascension, what guides are and the validity of meditation, then purchase Kryon book 10 – A New Dispensation (Plain Talk for Confusing Times), authored by Lee Carrol and read chapter 7, or go to www.kryon.com and access the channelling section and find the channelling on What’s New and What’s Not.
