Libra 13° ~ Children blowing soap bubbles

Libra 13° ~ Children blowing soap bubbles ~ Keyword: ENCHANTMENT

“When positive, the degree is a consistent simplicity of character which enables anyone to maintain his touch with a transcendental magic of being, and when negative, a constant and idle daydreaming.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones

“Taking the road back to me.”

Well, let’s take a closer look at these soap bubbles!

This is the house that Jack built

Here is the popular British nursery rhyme—a cumulative tale–that actually does not tell the story of Jack’s house, or even of Jack who built the house, but instead attempts to reveal how the “house-building” is indirectly linked to other things and people. Through this method we hear the story of “The man all tattered and torn”, and the “Maiden all forlorn”, as well as other smaller events, showing how these are interlinked.

Inter-linked—like soap bubbles that cling together. It would be wise for us to think on these things that stick together, are attached, and which accumulate in our experiences of life—whatever it is we might think we are building, we don’t really know all that will be manifest until our building-story is complete.

Do you take the time to see how the things in your life are inter-linked or do they seem random and unrelated? Do you brush them away with the word “coincidence”? Do you roll your eyes when others use the word “synchronicity”? Do you fail to appreciate that you are the creator of your own reality?

News flash! Your reality is bubbling up from within you!

An unsealed letter in the palm of our hand? Buddha – looking at his own right hand…⁣⁣⁣

“In some portrayals of the Buddha, he is looking at his right hand. But is he only looking at it? Actually, when the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, he is making contact with the great hand of the Creator, that is, with the whole universe, with suns, stars and nebulae. And in the Creator’s hand, the Milky Way represents the line of Saturn.⁣⁣⁣

“If the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, it is because the hand is not simply a physical organ we use like a tool or instrument. It is imbued with a mysterious power, by means of which it communicates with nature’s subtle bodies. Like the Buddha, anyone who concentrates on their hand can connect with the universe. They will feel they are in the hand of the Creator, nourished by the energies they receive from its centre.” Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov⁣⁣⁣

Akashic Records – The Book of Remembrance⁣⁣⁣

The Akashic records are like the DNA of the universe. They are the soul’s journey over time, so every thought, word, and deed is registered in the Akashic records. Each soul has its own Akashic record, and there are collective records of all souls or all journeys.⁣⁣

The perception you hold of me, I will soon make you forget. Beneath the surface, you will find so much more. I have locked myself away within my soul’s core. I’m very selective of who I show all of my colors to. The only ones who have access to my realness are those…who walk in Truth.” Lena Hovanesian⁣

David Lanz ~ Cristofori’s Dream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kwa5E-Z_CY0 🎼 ⁣

The planet of sensation, Earth—where birds sing, flowers bloom, clouds drift, waters flow, and mountains spire. With eyes, ears and nose; fingers, hands, legs and toes, all of our senses ingest, digest and consume all that is about us. ⁣

⁣To each experience we attach a measure of significance through these sensate abilities. In the end we will have a story to tell—our astounding experiences and unique perspectives of what we have realized, those epiphanies of which we have become intimately aware. ⁣

Thus, born into such an amazing world and filled with such incredible personal senses, how might we plan, organize and construct for a future intake of our highest mental, emotional and physical endowment? We are the sum total of our experiences. Make yours a conceptual melody, won’t you, please? ⁣

This planet we call home, Earth, is filled to overflowing with stories. Some are mean and angry, full of hatred and misconceptions and loathing. But there are other voices! Listen to them! They speak of unfathomable beauty and joy! Indeed by such inspired voices has this cherished tradition of story-telling long been kept alive among us—at the cradle, on the knee, around the campfire, from the pulpit and podiums of great men and women come…⁣

A Bird’s Eye View ~ Messengers of Truth

In the early 1970s, a researcher testing the ability of pigeons to discriminate colors, discovered by accident that the birds can see ultraviolet (UV) light. The finding was deemed curious but not too important. “It was natural for scientists to assume that bird vision is like human vision,” says Geoffrey Hill, an Auburn University ornithologist and the author of Bird Coloration. “After all, birds and humans are both active by day, we use bright colors as cues. … No one really imagined birds might see the world differently.”

Never assume! You know where that leads, don’t you?

“Sufficient unto one’s self.”

The Sabian symbol for August 17th Leo 25° ~ A large camel crossing the desert ~ Keyword: ADEQUACY

“When positive, the degree is uncompromising persistence and uncomplaining self-expenditure in any course to be followed, and when negative, ruthlessness in an unintelligent self-interest.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones

Paraousia – Paraousia https://youtu.be/tL1rb3DscIM

Wholly, holy, presence…

The camel carries water within itself, thus “living” water. And if we were to envision ourselves like unto the camel, then instead of seeing life as a barren wilderness threatening our survival, we might instead, also like the camel, realize we have all that we need to fully engage and even prosper in the “wilderness”. We might shake any gloomy outward view and instead base our perspective on the light from within. We each came here, you see, equipped not just to start the journey, but to finish it, and we may accomplish that in any way, with whatever attitude, level of understanding and way of being that we choose.

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.” Orson Welles

And that is the turning point from wholeness to holiness! In such a state—aware of one’s own living water within, this greater form of holiness will emerge—interdependence. When two or more come together in wholeness—each aware of its own self-sustenance—then the caravan, the group of the holy, begins moving and flowing, too.

On Humility⁣

“For the greater individual is the one who is the servant of all. And to conquer self is greater than taking many cities. For, here ye may find humbleness as against that which cries oft for expression, and the feeling of not being appreciated. Express it more in the greater amount of love upon those who may be aided through thy effort. For, remember, man looks upon the things of the day but God looks upon the heart.” Edgar Cayce, Reading 3253-2 Think On This, Make the world a better place because you have lived in it.⁣

On Rejection⁣

“To reject a human being, to scorn and humiliate them, is to declare that they are not one of God’s creatures. And no one has the right to declare or even think such a thing; no one has the right to place themselves between the heavenly Father and one of his creatures. If someone willfully cuts themselves off from divine love, obviously they are free to do so, but no one else can cut them off; no one has the right to exclude them.⁣

“Even the least evolved beings, even the most guilty, are sons and daughters of God. He has placed a spark in them – their spirit – which is an emanation of himself, and the presence of this spark means that they share something of his divine nature. ⁣

“When they make mistakes, they deserve of course to be reprimanded, penalized. But even if they need to be treated harshly and kept out of the way for a while, we should never forget that somewhere, buried deep down inside them, is a divine seed and that this divine seed must be respected and cultivated. When God’s children are subjected to humiliations, it is God himself who is insulted.” Omraam Daily Meditation⁣

Chicken Little went for her walk when an acorn falls and hits the top of her little head.⁣

“The sky is falling! The sky is falling! I must tell the Leo the Lionhearted! He’ll know what to do!”⁣

But on her way she runs into Henny Penny and then Ducky Lucky. She exclaims to them, each in turn, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!” They both believe her and so now all three are running fast as they can to tell Leo the Lionhearted.⁣

But now they meet up with Foxey Loxey, who asks, “Where are you going?” Their guard dropped entirely, the three now exclaim in excited unison, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling! We are going to tell Leo the Lionhearted about it!”⁣

“Do you know where he is right now?” asks the Foxey Loxey, feigning concern.In confused unison, they look at one another, then reply, “We don’t!!!”⁣

“Well, I do. Come with me, I’ll show you the way!” They follow Foxey Loxey right to his den. “He’s inside, go right in!” smiles Foxey Loxey.⁣

Again now, from the beginning! And give me a happy ending this time.⁣

Moral of the story: The expansion of consciousness is never achieved by jumping to conclusions.⁣
