If we focus on all that is wrong with the world, the only thing we receive is more of what is wrong with the world. If we focus on the war on __________ (fill in the blank), we get more of whatever we are declaring war on. Why? Because that is our focus. The universe is not concerned about the human perception of good or bad, moral or evil. All things are neutral and it is only our perception which affects our experience. The frequency at which we vibrate and send out into the universe will come back to us like a boomerang. It is the interpretation of that frequency that humans have trouble with since they repress those things they don't want rather than expand the love for the things they do.
Love of one's self is essential to the spiritual path not as a narcissistic pursuit but as something much deeper and more mature. By loving one's self, one is intending to serve the highest in themselves to the best of their ability at all times. This means drawing in any disparate parts of the self immersed in shadow into the illuminated sphere of our consciousness to be worked on not stowed away and repressed.
This means treating every situation, no matter how horrendous, as something to serve with our best and merge with as fully as we can with our presence, embodying the force of union so connected to love. This doesn't mean if a situation is distasteful to remain in it but only to be so completely aware of oneself that one can know how to erect necessary boundaries in any given moment or act accordingly not react disharmoniously. Ultimately, the more present we are or united/loving of the moment, the more able we are to act from greater depth. Things are now transforming with greater speed and intensity. We are embarking on a path to dismantle our conditioned identity of self because it is a limited sensibility that arrests us from actually realizing and actualizing the incredible potentials that are natural to all life.
Part of the realization of knowing you are all that is comes from knowing that consciousness is eternal Love. There is nothing else but Love and any manifestation of the opposite emotion is purely based in ego. Love can actually be experienced with everyone and everything. This Love then becomes unconditional. It's one of the reasons so many of us are drawn to animals since they offer us that emotion that many humans experience challenges with.
Love is knowing the deservability and worthiness of all. You are Loved so unconditionally by Creation that you can even choose to believe that you are not Loved.
Physical reality exists within you and you can make it whatever you choose. RIGHT NOW, you have the power and you are the power that drives physical reality. It doesn't exist without you and your creation. So why choose to defend yourself against experiences or events which you consider harmful when you can promote all the wonderful things you love and experience those things at a much faster rate? One goes with the flow and one goes against the flow. We've gone against the flow far too long to learn, but that learning has come to an end. It's now time to apply what we've learned.
The apex of change occurs on December 22nd, 2012 in the early morning hours, but on the eve of the new world, it's time to start reversing the vortex and manifesting every single thing that connects you with everything you are. It will be the first time on earth that there will be more people emanating positivity rather than negativity. Critical mass will be reached.
You are all that is and the time has come to show your greatest power...love. Michael Forrester is a spiritual counselor and is a practicing motivational speaker for corporations in Japan, Canada and the United States.
