Slow Down!

On my way to meet up with a friend, I thought I was going to be late so I speeded up. I started noticing that every time I got to a junction the traffic light was green and I couldn't cross over. At one point when a car drove by, I noticed the letters on the registration plate were the same initials as my friend. I thought to myself: "I bet you he's running late too and it's his way of telling me to slow down."

I arrived at our assignation on time but my friend wasn't there. He was a few minutes late.

Later I told my friend that although I had "received" his message to slow down he still should have been on time. :-)

There's no pleasing some people.

Being a Director/Conductor

Of all the jobs and professions there are, there are four that fascinate me the most: film director, music producer, music conductor and writer.

What do they all have in common?

Behind the scenes, they are directing or conducting whether it's the flow of energy, light, frequencies, or thoughts.

I reckon in a parallel universe, I am working as a film director, music producer or a conductor.

I am the conductor of all thought-forms.

The Cosmos in Motion

When I was a child, there was this game I liked to play when I was by myself. I would see my body as the Universe and see this solar system as a tiny cell. Whenever I moved I would imagine myself as the cosmos and thinking all experiences into being.

Years later when I had a vision of myself as the Cosmic Being, I realised that my childish fantasy had been spot on. All that I am experiencing are actually in me.

I am the cosmos in motion.

For my Cosmic Friend



Years ago after I wrote a piece called The Cosmic Being, I did a search on the Internet for any photos or works of art that closely represented what I was trying to describe in the piece I'd written.

I found a work of art called Cosmic Being by Bear Brown, which I believe is not only a masterpiece, it reminds me of a half-awake dream I once had where I saw myself as a purple formless entity shape-shifting into a body. I've been meaning to email the artist and thank him for his work.

I've just discovered the artist passed away years ago.

Thank you, Bear Brown, for your wonderful gifts. I hope, wherever you are, you are being the Cosmic Being that you are.

Delays Are Not What they Seem

I've been wondering about this car I've seen in our neighbourhood. When I first saw it, it looked as if it had been in a fire or some bad accident. Over the last few months, someone has been slowly restoring it. I've been wondering who was doing the work.

I've also been wondering about a pregnant friend I usually see when I walk to the bus stop. She told me a while back that her baby was due in August. I've been wondering if she's had her baby. I thought that maybe one of these days when I walk down her street, I might see her kids and ask them.

While I was walking home yesterday, I started feeling so hot it was as if my body was on fire. It wasn't "heat" as in the weather, it felt more like a heat coming from inside of me and it was so intense I decided to rest at a bus shelter until I had "cooled" down. After about ten minutes, I continued my journey.

On the way, a man approached me and asked if I knew where a particular road was and I said I didn't. A few minutes later I noticed the road and looked back for the man but he was nowhere in sight. So I backtracked and caught up with him. I told him I had just seen the road he was looking for and suggested he walked with me. He said he'd already asked two people and he was beginning to think he would never find the road he was looking for. He said not many people would have gone out of their way to help the way I was helping him. I told him it wasn't any problem.

Later, as I was walking down my pregnant friend's street, I saw her house door was open and her husband was standing outside with their son. I also saw her other son riding his bicycle on the pavement. I asked him how his wife was and if she'd had her baby and he said yes. He called out his wife and she came out and was very happy to see me. After we exchanged hugs, she said she had a baby girl and had just arrived from the hospital. I told her I'd been thinking of her and wished her and her family well.

A few minutes from home, I noticed two young men were fiddling in the car I'd been wondering about. I told them how I impressed I was at the work they'd put into transforming the car.

Hmmm! Is it possible then that my journey home had been delayed by the intense heat I had been feeling and that man that appeared to be lost so I could be in perfectly synchrony with my friend who had just come back from the hospital; and the young mechanics?

Delays are not what they seem.

Note to Self - On Being Unique

"In this infinite jigsaw puzzle called life, there is a special piece with a perfect shape and size that only I can fit." When the Pieces Fit
I believe one of the biggest cause of unhappiness in the human experience is comparison. Instead of people experiencing life in their own unique ways they're comparing themselves to what someone else has.

There have been many times when I've been "asleep" in my relationships and instead of accepting the individual as he is, I've been comparing the person concerned with either a previous relationship, someone else's relationship, or someone's yardstick of a relationship, and I've found myself getting frustrated. Then I've "woken up" and remembered that as we are all unique, each relationship is like no other.

Note to Self:

I don't care how happy you are;
I don't care how beautiful you are;
I don't care how loved up you appear to be;
I don't care how together your life seems to be;
I don't care how successful you are;
I don't care how enlightened and highly evolved you are;
I don't want to be you nor do I want what you have;

All I want is to experience the WONDER of the One Self in my own unique way, thank you very much.

Besides, when I'm too busy being the One that is me, there is no other to compare myself with.

There is only One Enocia!

Old Friend, Old Street

Two days ago I started thinking about an old friend who lives in the South of England and wondered how he was.

So yesterday as I was walking home I noticed this man walking his Dalmatian dog. When he walked past this woman, the woman flinched, as if she was scared. As a huge fan of Dalmatians I wanted to play with the dog, so I speeded up so I could catch up with them. I asked him how old the dog was and he said he was five months old and his name was Alfie. I asked him about the lady's reaction and he said she was scared of the dog. Alfie was very friendly to me. My friend asked me where the local park was and I told him it was just up the road and I was going to walk through it so we could walk together. He said he wasn't familiar with the area. I asked him where he lived and he said he was from the South of England, in the same town the friend I'd been thinking of comes from. He said he and Alfie drove down, which took them three and a half hours. He said he was spending the weekend at a friend's place and his friend runs a bar at Old Street and lives close by.

After we arrived at the park, I wished him a good weekend and continued my journey home.

Isn't amazing how I think of an old friend and I meet a friend who comes from his town and is staying with a friend who works in Old Street.

I believe meeting this friend was my "old" friend's way of acknowledging my thoughts about him. While in the human form, we are separated in distance, but in Spirit we are always one.

Love Makes You Act Out of Character - Part 2

I have put out an intention to see and experience zillions of examples of how Love makes people or animals act out of character.

I received the following email today (See below).

Positive Intentions

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Author unknown
I have observed that when someone is being critical of me, if I don't get defensive, I can see beyond the person and the words to the positive intention behind the criticism.

For instance, my mother has a problem with the way I cough which she reckons is so loud it startles her. She has got a point though because the other day on the bus when I coughed next to this passenger, he was startled and he glared at me. If looks could kill I would be a goner. :-)

Because of my mother's aversion to my cough, when I do need to cough I've discovered a way of coughing without actually coughing. I just clear whatever it is by thinking it away or just think "cough" a few times and my throat is clear. This comes in very handy at night.

My mother recently brought it to my attention that I cough whenever I'm in the bathroom. She even suggested that I go and see a doctor, even though she knows I don't do doctors. I told her there was nothing wrong with me. It did make me realise that it's a habit I have cultivated over the years. Now that I'm conscious of that habit, I've stopped coughing in the bathroom.

I am very grateful to my mother for bringing my habit to my conscious awareness and reminding me about the power of pure thought. She's definitely my spiritual guru. :-)

I see and experience only positive intentions.

When life gives me lemons, I make lemonades.

Things that Make Me Go Bwahahaha!

Before I went to the supermarket to pick up two items, I thought to myself that I wanted to be in and out of there in no time at all as I wasn't in the queuing mood. After I got the items, I looked for the checkout with the fewest people. One had two people but one guy had a huge trolley of goods. There was no way I was going to stand behind him. As I was about to look for another checkout, the guy with the trolley moved away. I asked him if he didn't want to use that checkout and he said no he was going to use another. So my intention did come true, I was in and out of that supermarket in no time at all. Bwahahaha!

When I got on the bus, I noticed my favourite seats were all taken. I decided the bus was way too crowded for my liking so at the next bus stop I got out and waited for another one, which I hoped was going to be empty. While I was waiting at the stop, the bus driver of the bus I was on announced to the passengers that he wasn't moving for a few minutes and advised passengers who were in a hurry to get one of the buses behind. A lot of the passengers got off the bus. Now that the bus was nearly empty, I hopped back on the bus where my favourite seat was now available. Bwahahaha!

Actually, I'm not as evil as I sound. I never take anything for granted. I'm always thanking Love for providing for my needs.

Still, it's good to pretend to be the villain who wants to control the world.

Bwahahaha!

A Whole New World - My Mother's Dream

My mother shared two vivid dreams she had last night. She has given me permission to share them on my blog in case anyone finds them helpful.

In the first dream mum found herself on the first floor at a branch of Marks and Spencer (a department store) where she likes shopping. She noticed the floor was empty and wondered where all the stock was. She was told that everything had been moved to the ground floor. There was a woman with her two children on the same floor. As there was no power on that floor the escalators weren't working. The kids walked down the escalator anyway but mum and the woman found walking down the escalator difficult so they found another way to get down. When she arrived downstairs she realised that the floor not only had a superabundance of stock, there were many shops and banks there too. It was like entering a whole new world of abundance she never knew existed. However, mum didn't feel like she belonged there and wanted to return to the floor above. Just before she did, she woke up.

In the second dream, she was with a celebrity whose daughter passed away years ago. As the woman was upset, mum tried to console her. Before mum left she reminded the celebrity of a passage from the Bible which she believed will help her get over her grief.
"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee." Isaiah 60: 1
Mum said she doesn't usually remember her dreams and was surprised how vividly she could recall her dreams. I reminded her that she's been religiously listening to a relaxation CD that she got from a hypnotherapist she saw recently. I said it seems like she's being shown things about herself in the dream.

This is what I believe her dream means.

In the real world, that particular branch of M & S has four floors including a basement, but in my mother's dream there were only two floors one with no stock and the ground that was superabundant. I believe the first floor represents that part of her that struggles and feels pain etc. The ground level with all the wonderful shops and stuff represents her true self that is whole, happy, and has all her needs met superabundantly.

(It's interesting how the kids had no problem getting to the ground floor as children are still very much open to their true self).

Mum was curious enough to explore the ground floor of plenty, as indicated by her getting to the ground level even though she struggled to get there, why didn't she want to stay on that floor? Is it possible she's not yet ready to be her true self?

It reminds me of a conversation I had with her after her visit to the hypnotherapist to help manage her pain. I asked her why she would want to manage the pain when she could get rid of it. I said there must be a part of her that wants to hold on to the pain for whatever reason. It seems to me that part of herself not willing to release the pain is represented in the dream as her eagerness to return to the floor above. At least she woke up from the dream before she returned to that floor.

I believe in the second dream, the upset celebrity represents my mother's own sadness and frustration that she feels about herself. The good news is even when she's feeling down, her true self is always consoling her and reminding her of the Truth of who she is - Light.

Mum said when she woke up this morning, she repeated that verse from the Bible to herself.

Even though my mother's dream related to her personal experience, I can also relate to it. I believe there are indeed two levels of awareness - surface mentality of lack and belief in separation; and the deep mentality of oneness. I believe that every moment I am being guided by the One in me to my good.

The Light is here now.
There's a whole new world awaiting those who listen to their hearts.

Thanks for the message, mum.

Pure Smile

During my bus journey, I noticed this young woman who I thought had a lovely face and even looked familiar then I dismissed the thought. About half an hour later as I was about to get off, I noticed the woman again and she was getting off at the same stop. When she looked in my direction, I smiled at her. She returned my smile. Then she pulled out a piece of paper and wrote something down.

When we got off she said to me that she'd been attracted by my smile. She said she was a portrait photographer and would be interested in taking my photos. She gave me her mobile number which she'd written down for me. I promised I would text her later.

After I texted her, she thanked me for my "pure smile."

Aww bless! I've never been told I had a "pure smile" before. I hope we do get to work together.

There's magic in a smile.

Love Makes You Act Out of Character

As Shakespeare once realised, this world is indeed a stage filled with people taking on many different characters. By "characters", I'm not just referring to personalities but what is expected of human behaviour, animals, nature, etc. However, when Love takes over, people start acting so out of character it's akin to madness.

Part of the human programming is that we are meant to either be in defence or attack mode against the "enemy" seen and unseen. Where there is only Love what is there to defend yourself against? A few months back, as I was chatting to this woman who had a cold and was coughing and wheezing, I felt like giving her a hug and I did. If I was being true to my human character, I would have run a mile away from her as the script says I'm not meant to be so close to someone with a contagious illness. That's Love for you, it made me forget my lines, again.

Another character portrait is we're meant to keep on trying to fix and change ourselves to fit someone else's idea of what is perfect. In the eyes of Love we are already perfect and there's nothing to be added or taken away. Love says, just be yourself. When you are being yourself by doing what you love, you naturally draw people and experiences that resonate with you as a unique individual.

Even animals are now acting out of character these days, i.e. being friendly with animals they are meant to be "enemies" with or even acting strange around humans. I've written elsewhere about this cat I've seen on a lead who follows his human friend everywhere. The last time I saw them, they were both in the library. A cat is not supposed to be on a lead like a dog following his human friend everywhere! That cat has gone bonkers!

I believe as more and more people continue to wake up to Love as the only substance and presence they will experience a world acting out of character - a world that is always loving, safe, and abundant. Those who insist on being true to character will continue to experience the world in the same old attack and defence mode.

Each to their own.

Love makes me act of character, thank God.

Expectations - Revisited

A couple of days ago, I chatted to my mother about pink cars and how I never used to see them until I started expecting to see them and now they are all over the place. I said I've even seen a pink bus, lots of pink taxis and several pink vans. Mum could accept the idea of pink cars but she couldn't imagine a pink bus or pink vans.

"How can there be pink vans?" she said.

"I saw one recently and it was a company van," I said.

"Who in their right mind would want to paint their company van pink?" she said. "How come I haven't seen any?"

"That's because you don't expect to see them," I said. "Because I expect to see them, they pop up wherever I am."

"I bet they all come out just for you," she smiled.

"Exactly! All pink cars and vehicles love me."

I told her about one part of London where there is a pink car parked and she said she'll look out for it.

Just this morning I spotted a dark pink company van with the name "Triumph."

I believe there's power in expectations. When I expect to see pink cars, I see pink cars.

"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." Psalm 23: 6

"When you are awake to God's personal nature, then you experience God as a loving friend and companion who is always there to guide, nourish, provide, protect and support you every step of the way either through you or through other channels." The Impersonal and Personal Nature of God
A month ago at a bus stop, I noticed this man and a Ginger cat on a lead beside him. He told me his cat follows him everywhere.

When I stopped off at one library yesterday, I saw the same man and his cat was right beside him. I was surprised to see the cat in there as I have seen a local cat trying to get in but the staff members have always chucked him out. Perhaps, they didn't mind this cat as he was on a lead. As the man was leaving, he lifted his friend on his shoulder.

I believe the cat represents God as a constant loving companion and friend.

Feeling the One in All

The wonderful thing about knowing that there is only One Self expressing as the all is meeting up with friends is such a doddle these days.

For instance, I had arranged to go out with a friend this coming Saturday but I kept having a feeling that I didn't want it to happen and maybe we should do it another time. I've just received an email from her saying that she can't do this Saturday and can we reschedule, which suits me fine.

On my way to meet up another friend recently, I had this feeling I didn't want to get there on time so I slowed down and arrived 15 minutes late. He arrived around the same time. I still gave him a hard time though for turning up late even though we had been in perfect harmony. Well, it's the principle that counts. He shouldn't have been late. Haha!

When I listen to my feelings, I'm being the One in all.

Waking Up from the Dream of Duality

In the dream of duality there are experiences of bondage/freedom, good/evil, heroes/villains, light/darkness, conservatives/liberals, lack/plenty, sickness/health, life/death, pain/pleasure, etc. People always choose sides and play equivalent roles.

Speaking of dreams, last night I watched Total Recall again for the umpteenth time. It is one of my favourite movies.

When Hauser, a secret agent, is sent to Mars to infiltrate the resistance movement who want to overthrow their oppressor, Cohaagen, Hauser falls in love with Melina, one of the resistance fighters, and joins their cause. Hauser's memory of his trip to Mars is then erased and a new memory is implanted identifying him as Quaid who works as a construction worker and has been married to a woman called Lori for 8 years. Unbeknownst to Quaid, Lori is a secret agent working for Cohaagen and there to keep an eye on Quaid. Although Quaid is happy enough in his job and marriage, he yearns for something more exciting. He also keeps dreaming of life on Mars and being in love with another woman, Melina. He even suggests to his "wife" that they move to Mars but Lori refuses. When Quaid visits a travel company called "Rekall" where you can have memories of a holiday implanted, Quaid starts remembering snippets of his previous journey to Mars. Quaid decides to visit Mars for real to discover why he had gone to Mars before and to investigate why Cohaagen doesn't want him returning to Mars.

To cut a long convoluted story short, Quaid is reunited with Melina and the leader of the resistance movement and discovers an alien technology that can provide free air for everyone on Mars. Cohaagen tries very hard to prevent Quaid from activating the technology but Quaid succeeds. The people of Mars are finally free from their oppressor and Quaid is free to be with Melina, the woman of his dreams.

As we can see, in the film, Quaid went from being on the side of the villains to becoming a hero and liberating the people of Mars.

Like Quaid, there are many who consider themselves to be freedom fighters and here to save humanity from their oppressors. I believe that as long as you're seeing yourself as fighting another you're still in a dream of duality. Once one dream has ended, sooner or later you're bound to dream up another version of duality.

How does one wake up from the dream and live in Reality?

You have to wake up and realise there is only One Light expressing Self as the many, whose nature is love. Where there is only love there are no villains or heroes, good or evil, light or darkness, there is only infinite expressions of love. Put another way, there is only the One appearing as people doing what they love and loving what they love.

Realisation of Love's omnipresence ends all dreams of duality.

Camphor

Yesterday my mother shared some snacks with me that her Nigerian friend had given her. When I had some I thought they smelled like camphor.

Fast forward to this morning. As I was sending a Facebook friend a link, a security notice came up asking me to type two words which were "the" and "camphor."

I wonder if Facebook had heard my thoughts earlier about the snacks.

I reckon it was just God playing with me.

Enocia

The Impersonal and Personal Nature of God

As I see it, God/Spirit/Love is both impersonal and personal.

God's impersonal nature is rather like the sun that shines indiscriminately on all regardless of their beliefs. It's then to up to each individual to use the energy according to their needs. If you don't know how to use the energy, then you get burnt.

God's personal nature is rather like parents who will do all they can to guide, nourish, nurture and protect their children. However, God's love goes a lot deeper than human parents because God knows each individual intimately, therefore, He knows what is truly best for each individual for all time.

I believe when you are awake to God's impersonal nature, although you experience His grace, God is still very distant. You feel as if you still need to figure things out for yourself.

When you are awake to God's personal nature, then you experience God as a loving friend and companion who is always there to guide, nourish, provide, protect and support you every step of the way either through you or through other channels.

When you are awake to God as the only One expressing as the many, then you experience God actively being both personal and impersonal in every moment. For instance, when I catch a bus, God is the bus driver taking care of all passengers' needs in an impersonal way as well as meeting my own personal needs.

God is all there is.

Curiouser and Curiouser - Revisited

As I was watching Live and Let Die starring Roger Moore as James Bond, it suddenly occurred to me that it was very similar to the "nightmares" I had earlier today.

In the film, there are a few explosions started off by Bond and he wasn't injured. In my first dream, I was in an explosion but I wasn't injured. In the film, someone puts a poisonous snake in James Bond's bedroom but he spots in just in time and burns it with a blow torch. In my next dream, a snake appeared in the bedroom and tried to attack me but I called on God and it disappeared.

Is it possible that what I had considered to be a nightmare was simply me dreaming the future? It's funny how I didn't feel like going out and just wanted to relax. When I realised that movie was on, I wanted to see it as Roger Moore happens to be my favourite James Bond of all time.

This dream called life is getting curiouser and curiouser.

No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper


"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." Isaiah 54: 17

"He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him." Psalm 91: 15
It took me ages to fall asleep last night. It's been the same pattern for the last few nights. I then had two dreams that were quite disturbing.

In one dream I was in this building and there was this explosion and even though I should have been dead, I was alive and I kept thinking to myself that I need to open my eyes. When I did, I woke up. I reminded myself of Love's omnipresence but couldn't go to sleep for a few hours.

Eventually, when I fell asleep this morning, I had a dream that a snake came into the bedroom and was trying to attack me. I kept calling on God and the snake vanished into thin air.

I've been attacked in the other realm before where I woke up with an invisible hand trying to suffocate me but I remembered a passage from the bible Psalm 23: 4 "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil" and the hand left me.

So whoever you are, stop wasting your energy as it's not going to work.

Love is all there is.

After writing a piece earlier where I discussed what I had learned from academia, I went to browse at the bookshop. A young woman sat next to me with lots of books about universities in the UK. She's Italian (which happens to be my favourite language to listen to) and she's thinking of going to uni to study International Relations and Japanese (my second favourite language). She's a bit worried about how she'll fare in the UK system and I assured her she'll be fine. I've even offered to help her with her application letter.

I love how the Universe organises these encounters. Formidabile!

Group Hug

So earlier today I noticed the letters "HUG" on a car's registration number. In thought I returned the hug to whoever was sending it.

As I was checking friends' posts on Facebook a few hours later, I noticed a friend had sent a Group Hug hours before.

Even though I wasn't online at the time, I still received the hug as the desire to hug is very real; at least that's what I believe anyway.

Thank you, friend, for the group hug.

Hugs to you too.

Love Comes as a Complete Package

A friend emailed me recently to invite me to two events. One was to the cinema. She said after buying one cinema ticket she got the other for free and thought of inviting me. She's even offered to pay for my travel card to get there. The other event is to play table tennis with her.

I told her I didn't play table tennis and was happy to accept the cinema offer. My friend didn't press me on the table tennis; I guess she'll find someone who will enjoy it more than me.

Life, for me, is very simple. I believe when something comes from Love, it's a complete package and effortless. If there are complications, it's not coming from Love. It's better to just walk on by.

Why I Believe in Backing Things Up

Words! Words! I'm so sick of words!
I get words all day through;
First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?
Don't talk of stars burning above; If you're in love,
Show me! Tell me no dreams
Filled with desire. If you're on fire,
Show me! Here we are together in the middle of the night!
Don't talk of spring! Just hold me tight!
Anyone who's ever been in love'll tell you that
This is no time for a chat! Show Me from My Fair Lady
Sometimes I find things that I've found frustrating in the past have ended up having important gems in them.

One example was my undergraduate years at university where students are considered to have no ideas of their own and everything has to be backed up by academic theories. Therefore, when writing a 2,500 words essay, I had to have read or looked up at least 10 books, not forgetting the journals, to back up my ideas. It didn't matter that the ideas were the same old recycled and regurgitated ideas, you still had to play the game. Given that I like to think up new and exciting ways of seeing things, I found it very frustrating churning out other people's ideas. It was only when it came to writing my dissertation that I was given a bit of leeway to express myself creatively, even that had to be backed up by theories.

When I started exploring who I am in spiritual terms, I realised how important it is to back ideas up. Just because the Scriptures say such and such a prophet or messiah experienced such and such doesn't mean I should just take it as gospel truth. Just because someone claims they are channelling some Archangel, Ascended Master or even God doesn't mean I should just accept it as truth. I need evidence to back up those claims. Can these principles be demonstrated in my every day experience right here and now? If not, why should I listen to you?

You could argue that given that my human self tends to only see things in part, it is possible that my human perception could be filtering out the evidence.

That's why I have core beliefs that help me see beyond human perception.

For instance, I believe my filtering systems or beliefs can NEVER get in the way of receiving my good. In other words, Spirit will always let me see what I need to see and will not stop bringing that message until I get it. One recent example was when I was deep in thought about something, my thought was interrupted and a vision flashed in consciousness warning me about things to come. After the vision, I returned to my thinking. See Intuition as Advance Warning.

I also have a core belief that what I need to know or what I'm seeking will come to me and they do in so many different ways. I remember one instance when I was in this forest and I was trying to figure out the quickest way out of it. Two dogs suddenly appeared. One of them was very friendly and even licked my face, while the other stood close by watching me. Their human friend was nowhere in sight. Then they ran off and I noticed them disappearing through a fence. I followed them and discovered a hole in the fence which I used to exit that forest. This is a demonstration of how answers can come in different forms and the answer comes and finds me.

A few weeks back, I had this vision where I saw what appeared to be a star constellation. When I mentioned my vision on the Internet, a friend sent me links of two websites that show various star constellations in the universe. After going through them and not seeing the ones that matched, I thought to myself that whatever I saw in that vision will come to me and I stopped thinking about it. A few days ago, a friend sent me a video by Delores Cannon about people who have volunteered to have this earthly experience. As I was watching it, I recognised some of the graphics in my vision. It was then I realised that the vision I'd seen was of the future. Again, I didn't have to go looking for the answer, it came to me.

I could list thousands of examples of truth principles in action, but I don't have time for that right now. My point is that before I accept someone's ideas as true, I want to see demonstrations of them in my life experience. And another thing, just because something is true for me doesn't mean I presume it applies to everyone. I am a believer in people exploring truth for themselves; in other words, self-realisation.

To anyone reading this, I implore you to take everything I've written with a pinch of salt. They are only my experiences and can only be theory for you until backed up by personal demonstrations.

Thank you, Academia, for teaching me about the importance of backing up ideas otherwise they are just words, words and more words.

Admiring the View

Earlier during the day, I was thinking how lovely it is to be admired for being me without making an effort.

Later as I was walking home, a man pulled up in his car and beckoned me over. I popped my head through his window and said, "Are you lost? How can I help you?"

"No, I'm not lost. I just had to stop to admire the view," he smiled.

"Oh I see," I laughed.

I remembered my earlier thought about how lovely it is to be admired and my wish was coming true.

He asked me where I was off to and I told him. He was amazed I was walking home and he offered to drive me home but I declined. He also wanted to see me again but I said it wasn't a good idea. After chatting for a few minutes about stuff, I said goodbye to my friend.

Thank you, Universe, for being my no. 1 fan.

Quote of the Day - 2

"Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the ...most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." ~~ Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City

Cat Mystery Solved

On my way home, I noticed my cat friend sitting on a fence. I'd only seen him two days before so it was nice to see him again. He recognised me and moved tentatively towards me. He felt damp; he was probably caught in the recent downpour. Then he climbed down the fence so we could spend time together. After playing with him for a few minutes I said goodbye and he walked beside me.

A woman approaching from the opposite direction said, "Hi Pookie! Are you going home with the lady?"

"Is he your cat?" I said.

"No, but I do have a cat. Pookie comes through the cat flap to visit my cat and I feed him."

"I've been wondering where he lives. I used to see him on another road. I even asked this woman on that street if she knew where he lives but she didn't know."

"He does get around," she chuckled. "The postman said he once saw Pookie coming out of someone's house up the road and he was quite surprised."

"I'm not surprised. He's the most affectionate cat I've ever met," I said. "Do you know where he lives?"

"Three doors down, but they're always out."

"Is Pookie his real name?" I said.

"No, I've heard the kids call him something similar but he answers to Pookie."

After I said goodbye to Pookie and his friend, he accompanied her into her house.

At least that's solved the mystery about where Pookie lives. I love how Pookie has friends everywhere in the neighbourhood. We are even friends and I live three miles down the road.

In a way, Pookie is a bit like me as I have friends that I meet on my travels - humans and furry.

Thank you, Pookie, for being who you are. I love you!

Diet Tips

People often ask me how I manage to stay so slim. Is it because I have a fast metabolic rate; is it because of my beliefs; or do I follow a particular diet?

First of all, I do follow a special diet called eat what you love and judge no other foods as good or bad.

Second, what I ate yesterday belongs to yesterday. I don't see why I should drag it along with me to today or any other day for that matter. I prefer to travel light.

The Dish is Very Good!

A few days ago, my mother cooked this African dish with oxtail, pig's feet, tripe and fish which was served with rice. I only had some of the sauce with fish as I wasn't too keen on the other meats.

You would have thought that if I'm not into those meats, I wouldn't have had the sauce. It didn't matter to me that the sauce was flavoured by those meats I didn't feel like eating, I still enjoyed it all the same. Just because I preferred not to have those meats at that time doesn't mean I don't eat pork; I love bacon and sausages.

My mother's dish represents the Universe which contains infinite expressions of love. Although I prefer to focus only on the expressions that resonate with me, I still acknowledge other expressions that do not resonate as love.

It's All Good!

The Many Shades of Love

Love is all there is and appears in many different shades. Some shades are right up my alley while others not so much. Still it's all love.

For the last few weeks I've been pining for my dear friend, a cat I usually see when I walk through this particular neighbourhood, that I haven't seen in ages. I've been wondering where he is. As I was walking on this road, this cat approached me. He looked like my cat friend but I didn't think it could be him as this road was five minutes away from the other road. This one looked bigger. Then I remembered it's been a few months since I last saw my friend so he must have grown up and been exploring other neighbourhoods.

My friend rubbed himself against me and I stroked him. As I walked he followed me. It is you! I said. I've missed you. He didn't miaow like he used to but he just continued to purr and let me stroke him. When I came across a ledge on someone's front garden I pointed to it and asked him to hop on it so I could stroke him. He did, just like he used to. He also gave me a kiss like he used to. He accompanied me to the top of the road.

A few minutes later I saw another cat on this ledge that was a few inches taller than me. He miaowed at me. I reached out to stroke him. He rolled over on his back so I could stroke his tummy. I was rewarded with a few scratches on my wrist. As he was very close to the edge I warned him to be careful he didn't fall off but he didn't heed my warning. He lost his footing and fell off but he landed on his feet, as cats usually do. A dog might not have fared so well. After stroking him some more, I said goodbye. He didn't follow me like my other friend, he just ran off.

A few minutes down, I came across this man who had a lovely smile.

"Hello princess!" he said. "How have you been keeping in Christ Jesus of Nazareth?"

"I'm great, thank you!" I said. "How are you?"

"I'm surviving," he said.

He raised one fist and I did the same and we tapped fists. He touched his heart and wished me love and I did the same and wished him good evening.

On another road I saw some guys and one guy smiled at me and I said hello and he said hello.

On another road, a guy I usually see fiddling with his car was in another car. I asked him if that was his other car and he said it was his neighbour's car which he was fixing. He was too busy to chat but wished me good evening.

Love is all there is.

The Grass is Just as Green Right Where You Are

When I saw this woman on the road, who was looking really tanned, I asked her she'd just been on holidays.

"I've been to Italy," she said.

"You look really brown."

"Actually, most of my tan comes from here," she said. "The weather has been fabulous; you just have to go out and enjoy it."

"So true," I said and waved goodbye.

My friend had made a great point. While it's fine to go abroad on holidays, if one chooses to holiday in the UK, there are many activities to suit all tastes. Like my friend said, the weather has been fabulous too.

The grass is just as green right where you are.

Will is Now in Motion

So a friend asked me to help meet a need. As I knew he believed in God, I told him that God had already provided what he needed. As it may come to him through different channels, I suggested that he remained alert for his answer.

My friend said he had faith it may come to pass.

I told him I had faith it WILL come to pass.

Of course I could understand why my friend had used the expression "may happen" because from the human perspective we can only see things in parts. My human self sometimes frets when she can't see things happening fast enough.

How can I encourage my human self to keep on believing while speaking the Truth of my all-knowing Self?

I can say to her that whatever she is wishing to experience Will happen Now.

"Will" takes into account the human understanding of things unfolding in time and space which will manifest a few seconds later or a few hours later or a few days later or longer.

While "Now" is speaking the Truth of the Self who knows all possibilities already exist in the present.

I believe Will is Now/Infinite Possibilities in motion.

All that I ever desire and wish for WILL happen NOW.

Why Grace is Not Just for the Chosen Few

My brother and his wife hosted a party last night for my mother's birthday. My mother was expecting her niece and her partner to turn up but they didn't show up, which mum thought was very strange.

This is what happened to my cousin and why she didn't come.

My cousin lives in a town about 40 miles outside of London. Before they drove down, they stopped off at a shop to buy some food for the party. After they'd been driving for about 20 miles, my cousin had a thought that she didn't have her bank card with her, which she believed she'd left at the shop they visited earlier. Her partner didn't want to go back but she insisted that they return to the shop. He reluctantly drove back to the shop where she found her card. As they were about to get into their car they discovered some fluid leaking out of the car. When they had the car checked out by a mechanic he told them a part of their engine had gone wrong and if they'd continued to drive on the motorway, it would have blown up; and more than likely they would have been either badly injured or killed.

Mum said that it just shows how important our prayers are which must have saved their lives. I told mum that I believe the experience demonstrates Grace in action.

The God I believe in that is in all is a God of Grace.

Grace doesn't care whether you pray or not; whether you're a believer in a particular religion, teacher, saviour, messiah or not; whether you have the right attitudes, thoughts or not. It is the nature of Grace to save all and love all regardless. My cousin's partner is not even a "believer" and yet he was still saved.

If Grace intervenes regardless, what then is the purpose of prayer?

Because we're constantly being bombarded with the beliefs that our good comes from our efforts, thoughts and beliefs, one can get so caught up in that pattern of thinking that you can't see the wood for the trees. Prayer helps me to remember that I live by Grace i.e. good things happen not because of what I believe, what actions I take, or how often I pray; good things happen because the nature of God is very good. Even when I can't "see", God helps me "see" just like my cousin had insisted on returning to the shop even though her partner was dead set against it.

I believe God doesn't play favourites or rewards only the chosen few. Everyone is entitled to wonderful experiences whatever their beliefs.

I live by Grace.

A Real Legend!

At my mother's birthday party, which my brother was hosting, I noticed a relation's son looked like the younger version of the American singer, John Legend, whose voice I LOVE. I asked the boy if he knew who John Legend was but he said he didn't.

When my brother started playing music, the first song he played was "We Just Don't Care/PDA" by John Legend, which was amazing considering he hadn't heard my earlier conversation with the boy. It also happens to be a song I LOVE. I must have listened to that song hundreds of times. I had to get on the dance floor and I was so lost in the music that when I finished dancing, mum and her friends thought I was drunk.

Of course I was drunk - on John Legend.

And I didn't care who saw my public display of affection (PDA) for John Legend either. :-)
