"Response to Angelwings" by Anxious to Begin - 4.16.17
Thank you Anxious to Begin. When I read your response, I can only describe it as an overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude. Thank you.
I never thought you were talking badly of Yosef in your post. I believe that Yosef is coming from a place of love. I don’t think he is a bad person at all, and I certainly would never speak ill of him. He has his own journey, as each of us do. I believe he is trying to help those who are looking to find their way in this life journey they are on. At least I truly hope so. My life lessons of late have involved teaching me to decipher who is who they say they are, and who is not. I tend to be very trusting and honest, and I sometimes assume (yes I know what they stands for!!) that others are too. So my lessons of late have been to teach me to listen to my intuition about whether someone is pretending to be something they are not.
I guess it was just the term “surrender”. It is probably from my past religious teachings in childhood, and it had a negative connation for me. I choose to use the term “acceptance”. Acceptance of who we truly are, and of God’s love for us. Acceptance that I have chosen to come forth into this lifetime with a divine mission. I’ve known since I was a child that I have a purpose for being here. Acceptance of my true self and my creative God power to change the world into the loving, healing planet that I know it can become. Heaven on Earth. Acceptance of my higher self. Acceptance of my human self, flaws and all. Acceptance of all the love and goodness that I know I am deserving of.
Sounds so Pollyanna doesn’t it? But I believe we can do this. Each one of us are capable of unlimited love, compassion, creativity, and so much more. When we can look at another, and see nothing but love for them, regardless of what they’ve done or who they are, then we will know we are there. And I am speaking of all of God’s creatures. I work on this every day. I’m a work in progress, as all of us are.
It’s wonderful when I hear other people speaking their truth, without pushing it onto someone else, or talking badly about someone. Just their truth. Some things may resonate with people and some things may not. We can learn from each other. I have come to realize that I am a teacher (yet still learning) and a healer, and that I am surrounded by people who I am constantly trying to awaken. They are seeking answers and questioning things. I try to get them to look within for their answers, and not listen to mainstream or others. To listen from inside. I really don’t have anyone who I can talk with about such in-depth and spiritual topics. That’s why I think I enjoy reading some of these posts. I feel a sense of comradery and a sense of belonging.
Anyway, I’ve rambled again. It feels good to have a place to say these things and for others to actually hear and understand what you are saying.
Thank you for responding to my post. I could feel the love and energy, and I had a wonderful day today!! I hope you did too. I hope all who read this have a blessed and wonderful day!
Blessings and Rainbows,
