Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.
We want you to think the thoughts that match what you want until
you believe them. And when you think the thoughts that match what you
want until you believe them, Universal Forces will give you the proof of
your belief. But if you need to see it before you believe it, it cannot come.
You have to believe it before you see it.

FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The desire of gold is not for gold. It is for the means of freedom and benefit.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

You are an inspiration, viva.  ::hugging:kiss: This thrills me.

::grapevineHappy Happy Happy Incarnation Month, Sandra, Nancy, & Elena ::grapevine This is a great month to have incarnated what with 32 days in it ::cool!!

Evey ... Phewwww! Relief. I feel relief reading this! Thanks Katherine! Is it looking for love in ALL the wrong places to think we can get/give unconditional love as physically focused humans. No matter how much we so want to and want others to do this, is it something we should be looking for Source to do and not our family/loves/mothers. Doesn't it feel so much better to let everyone else off the hook about how they love us?   Boy are you right about PHEWWWWW!!  Throughout my upbringing ... even though deep down I knew something was askew ... I allowed myself to be conditioned to put our loves above all else, especially husbands/wives.  And being a female, of the baby-boomer ilk, it was demonstrated to me, through word and deed, exactly what and where my role was in the food chain of marriage.  My Darlyn ate it up.  But, he also returned it triple fold.  What a big huge mountain of an awakening I had, after he left this earthly reality to move on to other adventures in consciousness, was how much I relied on him to see me with the eyes of Source...how much I relied on his view of me for my view of myself.  Looking for love in all the wrong places.  And although I FELT I was off kilter somewhere, his love and appreciation ... his unending constant flow of that energy ... was like a drug and I felt like I was being fed intravenously by Source.  Now, it's a new ball game.  He gave me the gift of awakening when he changed forms and I am re-learning the power I have ... the magic I am ... the freedom in finding the unconditional love for me.  And, although the depth of my love for him is without boundaries, I am having some kinda fun re-discovering love in all the Source places. 

Page 175:  When you allow your society, or even one other person, to dictate to you what you should want or how you should behave, you will lose your balance, because your sense of freedom - which is core to your very Beingness - is challenged.

Sometimes, when drugged by what-is love, you don't know you aren't free until you are.

Page 175


It is not my role to fix the feeling of lack within others; it is my role to keep myself in balance.

 

When I allow society, or even one other person to dictate what I should want or how I should behave, I will lose my balance, because my sense of freedom--which is core to my very Beingness--is challenged.

 
So that explains why I get so hurt and/or angry when muggles try to influence me to behave in a way that contradicts my very soul....my Beingness is being challenged ::idea_new::idea_new lightbulb moment.

 

The muggles are NOMB!!  (none of my business).....love NOMB Katherine::singer




Thank you and I Love you!!!

MasterCard priceless, Sandra & Katherine!!!   

viva ....my VR becoming reality    Your Never Never Land has manifested 

 ::woohoo 


I have a place where dreams are born, ::music
And time is never planned.
It's not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

You'll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.

Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land  ::music

 

Page 176:  Lordy lordy ... for me, most of this page is highlighted (and could have been attached to my previous posting, as well).  What to choose..what to choose....

You do, however, have control over your own Connection to Source, and when your dominant intent is to maintain your Connection while leaving others out of that equation, then you will be free of trying to please others (which you cannot consistently do), and you will be able to main a consistent Connection and feeling of Well-Being.   (my bold) 

Huge reminders splashed all over this page for me ... and although I don't need to say it ... it can all be applied to every square on my game board, not just the 'careers as profitable sources of pleasure' square.  I look upon a couple of granddaughters and step-granddaughters with smiles of pleasure at their willingness not to be boxed in or to relinquish their connection to Source in order to please their parents/teachers/buddies, etc.  (Although, there are times when I wince a bit when I see my son & daughter-in-law trying to figure how to hold on to these wild cat tails ::LOL)  As Abe has been telling us, those incarnating, now, are coming in with the ability to hang on to WHO-THEY-ARE, and they are not about to hand over their freedom to someone who isn't feeling connected to Source.  My granddaughters (teens) are not "Abers" or following any outwardly seeming spiritual path ..... all paths are spiritual ... but I see their Connection and dominant intent within to keep Connected, even as they thunder and roar and resist the masses. And I can see the fun and twinkle in their eyes as they play with vibrational reality, even in the face of stark contrasting consequences.  THEY ARE FEELING THE FUN and are going to make huge energy changes as they expand the U.  They are reminding me constantly of my own freedom.  Awesome.   They are going to be ones who follow their hearts ...pack their own lunches... as far as careers as profitable sources of PLEASURE go.  They will be breaking the molds and classic definitions of what careers have been before they came into the picture.  There will be "little vivas" running around all over the place ::devil.  I thrill at the thoughts of what is in store for them ... and us ... as we expand.  ::wow

And I'll bet every single playmate in this group with kiddies has seen/felt the same things in some way or another.

:exactly::exactly: Donut Whisper and Lovely Leslie

OH Susan I know exactly what you mean when you say What a big huge mountain of an awakening I had, after he left this earthly reality to move on to other adventures in consciousness, was how much I relied on him to see me with the eyes of Source...how much I relied on his view of me for my view of myself. Looking for love in all the wrong places. And although I FELT I was off kilter somewhere, his love and appreciation ... his unending constant flow of that energy ... was like a drug and I felt like I was being fed intravenously by Source.

My Umberto did this as well and now I know what Source feels like!!

Sandra great quotes. One was perfect for a conversation I was having last night!! I will be passing it on.

Balance finding my BALANCE ::TU:kiss: Nancy

Tomorrow I have a meeting scheduled in one of the rooms in our building. Yesterday I got an eMail telling me that the room will be under construction.
So this morning I decided to send an eMail to the office manager telling her my opinion about her actions.
Before I started my action, I decided to get closer to the vortex before I do anything.
When I open my eMail , I saw that she sent me massage this morning titled "Appreciation breakfast"
I decided not to do anything , the UM is arranging all the cooperative components

How fun!  I went to my favorite internet music place and pulled this song.  GREAT!!  Thanks for the rec.  Then, I went back and loaded in the title "Freedom" and pulled ALL those songs.  SO FUN!  I'm still listening through the list.  Now Playing "Mother Freedom" by Bread!!!  ♥ ♥

Look at step 1 and say:

Hey step 1, I see you are here. But you are not real at all. From my IB perspective you do not exist at all. So why do I see you ? I see you because I (my IB ) created you. I created you from my broad perspective to be right now right here . And I did it for the purpose of expansion. Wow, you look so real, I am a magnificent creator to create an ugly step 1 like you. I really really appreciate my powers. I am great ! If I can create you I can create anything.

Okay I will Joseph,

Evey says to Step 1, "Hey step 1, I see you are here. But you are not real at all. (no--no you are not!)

 From my IB perspective you do not exist at all. :)So why do I see you ? I see you because I (my IB ) created you. I created you from my broad perspective to be right now right here . And I did it for the purpose of expansion. :):shock: (aha, can you give me an Amen!)

Wow, you look so real, I am a magnificent creator to create an not so ugly step 1 like you, in fact you are a smallish step one moment::devil. I really really appreciate my powers. I am great ! If I can create you I can create anything. And so off to make the icing for my sweet cake...::devil

I LOVE the love that we give to each other on this thread. I'm going to have an appreciation LUNCH!

You guys are wonderful.

And so is today's page. It's so funny how the topic is 'career', but it goes to the very basis of what it means to be human, and have a good life here on this planet.

So I, too, underlined almost all of the page!

Page 176
"Most people do care more about what others think about them than they do about how they personally feel, but there can be no consistency in that form of guidance."
[...]
"An interesting thing to note is, those who care about how they feel--who consistently hold themselves in an attitude of good feeling emotions; who are connected to Source and flowing positive thoughts outward toward whatever they are focused upon-are usually seen by others to be attractive, and they are often the recipients of much appreciation and approval."

Barbara you are such an uplifter and that was the sweetest post! Thank you! I love you! DonutWhisperer thank you for the translation!! and Leslie and Nancy you are both so lovely! I adore our playgroup and all the loving support we bring for one another too!! My cup runneth over... really, how abundant is our miraculous thread!! Joseph, I can't wait to draw my clients into the vortex!!! Thank you!!! I will call you when my empire expands! ♥ Katherine, I am so glad you loved the song too!! it feels powerful! In the morning I sing along to it in my bedroom and laugh so much! ::hugging hugging all of you!!

p. 176 "Most people do care more about what others think about them than they do about how they personally feel."

I have been reading the best book on Warren Buffet this past few months and Buffet talks about how he has an inner scorecard and not an outer scorecard, and how rare that is. Truly he does what he does for himself and not for others. He is completely wonderfully selfish and he summons abundance of all things to him. He never does anything to be rich or acquire things but rather to follow his bliss which is finding great businesses to acquire. He is a living legend and total Aber in his own way! I love it! I want an inner scorecard!

"When you care about your alignment with Source, which is represented by the way you feel, and you work to maintain your Connection, anyone who is then your object of attention received benefit from your gaze. You cannot uplift another unless you are connected to the Stream of Well Being yourself."

Lately someone who is not into spirituality asked me what the Abe teachings were about, and I told her that it is about being selfish and caring about your own needs, which is counter to what we've been told most of our lives, because then we can open ourselves fully to others to give others such gushing outflows of love and support!

I know the teachings involve a lot more but I find myself saying this a lot to people lately when I try to find words that they will relate to and make it simple.

Truly, this must be why we all have so much love for each other on our forum. We are all being responsible for our own emotions and taking care of ourselves and our needs and we are able to flow so much love to one another as we are so TITITO!

::grapevine::grapevine::grapevine::grapevine I just love Abe, our playgroup, the amazing summer we are having, and how great life is!

Freedom.. ::music
