These are so synchronistically presented at a time when we are about to step into a freedom we have not known for so very long! We must adjust, manifest, forgive and master ourselves….

Imix 9 The Nature of Cycles
I am Imix, Guardian of the door to New Beginnings; where there is completion, new doors open unto you. Take time now to think of something you have recently completed. It can be as grand as ending a huge project or saying good-bye to a loved one, or it can be as simple as having finished washing the supper dishes. Choose one event that you have completed to focus on today. What doors have opened as a consequence of finishing this activity? How do you feel as you end this task or event? Is there a feeling of accomplishment, joy or desperation? Are you ready to release any ties to the event in order to keep moving forward? Many times, there is a sense of guilt associated with endings. You are trained from youth to keep seeking new goals. Often the goal becomes the reason for doing the deed while much is lost during the journey.
We suggest you pay more attention to what is occurring each moment. While you are washing dishes, are you feeling gratitude for the meal you just had? While eating, did you pay any mind to the plants or animals that have given their life for your sustenance? Did you give any attention to those involved in the processing, transportation or sale of those food items? While eating, did you give thanks to all involved? Have you ever wondered about the factory workers or pottery makers that spent their time creating the plates and cookware you used to prepare the meal? Do you consult with your body to ask what it needs? Do you mindfully chew your food in order to assist your body in the digestion process and thus retain the nutrients needed to support your health?
As you end the process of the meal by washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen, wherein lies your thoughts? Are you focused on future events? Are you planning what you will do with the remainder of the evening? Are you still in the moment, giving thanks for your many blessings surrounding the meal?
It is important to pay attention to endings of cycles, no matter how trivial they seem. Paying attention to what is happening in the moment will allow you to find satisfaction and joy in all things. Many of you start tasks with the goal of completing them, yet no joy is found along the way. When you come to the end of the journey, there is just a hurried sense of getting on with the next project. You were taught this method of living in your schools. You were given assignments with deadlines, day after day. They were to be completed by the deadline or you would be punished with a bad grade, no matter how good the output. The same filtered over into your work life. Once again, you were given deadlines to fill. Many times the quality didn’t matter as much as the quantity of mass-producing items. The deadline became the main objective.
You didn’t have time to sit back and look at what you had created because you were already being pushed into the next event that has a new deadline. Many, especially in the business world are juggling several deadlines at once. It is no wonder that so many are dying of stress related diseases. It is no wonder that joy is lacking in your life. You have not remembered to stop and smell the roses. Those of you who have distanced yourself from Nature are having the most difficult times, for Nature is healing and restorative. There you will find peace and balance. Look at the forests and natural wonders of the world. Nature has no deadlines, yet all is done on time. The seeds know when to sprout. The leaves know when to fall. The birds know when to migrate. The bears know when to hibernate.
You can learn much from Nature through observation. Take time to quiet your outer world and go within. Think of ways you can become more balanced. Find ways to become more in tune with the natural cycles of the world. With the advent of technology, your world has become out of balance.
Let us take a look at the farmers of old, before corporations possessed them. They arose at dawn and had a good, solid meal. Off to the fields they would go, breathing in clean, fresh air. They were always available to help their neighbors, whether it was to build a barn or plow a field. Sharing of tools and work animals was commonplace. As the sun went down, they would retire for the evening. The family lived together as one unit, usually four generations in the house, each having jobs to do. There wasn’t the stress to run off to the city to punch a time clock. Families knew their neighbors. Children learned to caretake animals and grow their own food. Entertainment was provided through their music and art.
As the industrial age pressed upon them, the farmers got farther away from planting with the moon cycles and their known ways of forecasting weather. Even larger cycles such as allowing the soil to rest in the winter were changed when the advent of pesticides, green houses and other unnatural means of producing food were introduced. Your foods now are full of toxins. Fruits and vegetables are transported 1500 miles or more from where they are grown which necessitates unnatural means of ripening and food storage. How many farmers live off their land? Very few, for most are forced into monoculture farming, raising only one or two crops each year. This also creates a burden on the soil, depleting it of valuable nutrients resulting in food products that lack minerals necessary for health.
Next, the food is whisked off to processing plants that further destroys any remaining nutrients. Thus, by the time the food reaches your table, it is void of nutrients and has had the life force irradiated out of it. Much of what each of you consumes today is not only toxic, it is completely unnatural. Much of the obesity that exists is due to the body storing all of these unnatural items that it doesn’t know what to do with. This creates liver dysfunction and clogged cells throughout your body.
Why have we gotten off on this tangent? To show you the importance of paying attention to what is going on around you each and every moment. Did you think when we started this dialogue that washing dishes was quite a minute part of your life? In one sense, yes, it is. However, when you take time each night as you wash the dishes to pay attention to the various aspects previously mentioned, you will find that some important life choices were involved in the meal.
How important is the job you invest so much of your time in? Is that job beneficial to you or simply a means to an end, an end that never comes? What percentage of time that you engage in this job, including morning preparationand the drive to and from work, do you find joy and satisfaction? If the percentage is low, then we encourage you to find another way to support yourself. Many of you are in great fear of changing jobs or other areas of your life because you are attached to the material rewards and what others expect of you.
There are a growing number of people who are making great changes in their lives. They have looked around and found how dissatisfying their lives have become. They discovered they had hooked into a system that treats them like a robot. They have been robbed of life savings from mismanagement of their funds while they are over-paying for services that are free in other societies. Many are lonely, for they live so far from loved ones. You have lost your sense of tribe and forgotten how to share with your neighbors. Many of you have become overly attached to the technologies that surround you. Just how many televisions can one watch at a time? Why do you need five clocks in one household? Is it all that difficult to walk into another room to throw your trash away rather than own eight trashcans?
Look around your environment. How much stuff do you have that you don’t enjoy? Perhaps you want to enjoy it, but are too busy making money either to make ends meet or to buy a new house, toy or car that is bigger and better? Step back; take time to re-discover who you are. Have the courage to step out of the box and reclaim the wishes of your childhood. When you were a child, many of you had more time to dream of things you wanted to experience or accomplish in your life. However, you got busy or others stomped on your dreams and you let them fall to the wayside.
Take time now to reflect back on dreams you set aside. Are they still valid? Do you still want to motorcycle across the country or climbMt.Everest? Do you still dream of having a log cabin in the woods surrounded by a white picket fence? What dreams do you wish to explore? What is hindering you from fulfilling those dreams?
We encourage you to look closely at your dreams and find ways to make them reality. Peer pressure keeps many from speaking out. We suggest you move forward anyway. Seek out those who have stepped out of the box and moved forward with their lives. These are the people who will support you the most, for they have already pressed through their inner fears and the ridicule from others around them. You may be astounded to find out how many live vicariously through them, sometimes feeling resentment and sometimes feeling joy and a sense of hope that one day, perhaps they too will find freedom in their lives.
You may need to make great changes such as leaving a church, ending a relationship, changing jobs or moving to a new location. Each one of these takes great courage, but the rewards are well worth the effort. If you are not ready to make great changes, start by allowing yourself to dream. Many of you have lost the art of imagination, yet this is the keystone to any great change. If you can visualize it, if you can feel it, if you can taste it, then you can create it! Have the courage to move forward. Have the wisdom to live in the moment, paying attention to what is happening around you. Everything is literally an attitude away. If you are not happy, do not blame others. The belief codes you have chosen are steering the boat to whatever course you are currently on.
Have you ever wondered why some people can forgive others of great transgressions or why some people are always happy, no matter what circumstances they are in? It is because they have learned to hold themselves responsible for their own actions and allow others to be responsible for the choices they have made. Talk with these people and learn from them. They are your greatest teachers. We hope that the next time you wash your dishes, your mind will expand to the point where you will know that all things are possible and that your happiness and joy in life is truly a gift and your birthright.
Selamet! Imix 9
MAYAN MESSAGE DAY 62
Ik 10 Manifest Your Dreams
I am Ik. Welcome to this blessed day in which exists all possibilities. Of the myriad of choices available, what will you choose? Do you know that you are in control of your destiny? Do you realize the importance of your words and how they ripple throughout the entire fabric of the universe? Have you any realization of the impact your thoughts, both positive and negative, have on yourself and others? Thoughts and words fueled by your emotions are the stuff that manifestation is all about. Today we will focus on the gift that Tone 10 has to offer, that of manifestation. With the increased energies of this day, you will have before you a palette to choose from.
What is it you desire? What forgotten dreams lie within you? Have you a problem that needs resolved? Is there a fear you wish to overcome? Have you an addiction to a food or substance that you would like to regain control over? Is there a relationship you would like to establish or reconnect?
Choose one to focus on today. Take a few moments now to center yourself and release the worries of the day. Clear your mind of the clutter that distracts you. Focus on your breathing, letting your breath flow in and out at a normal rate. Relax your muscles and let your mind wander to an issue you would like to work on today.
Allow yourself to dream big. Do not allow your mind to talk yourself out of anything, ever. There is nothing that you cannot accomplish. There is no-thing that you cannot move closer to. Many times what you desire is an attitude away. Once you break through barriers of protection you have created, you will be amazed at what you can experience and accomplish!
Now, lock onto one thing you would like to manifest in your life. See it clearly in your mind. Use all five senses to make the visualization as real as you can. In your mind’s eye, look at what is happening around you. If there is some part that you don’t like, change it until the dream feels comfortable and gives you joy.
What sounds do you hear? Focus here for a moment. Smell the surroundings, making it as real as possible. Feel the sensations surrounding you, perhaps it is the touch of a loved one or the fabric of the interior of your dream car. What words are being spoken by you or others in the visualization?
When any fears or doubts come in, let them flow by. You do not need to rationalize what can or cannot be done, for this left-brained activity is what has kept you from attaining your dreams. Pay attention to what emotions are present. If there is anxiety, sadness or anything that feels uncomfortable, push them aside. Remember this part of the journey is just a dream; it is like trying on new clothes and looking to see how you like them in the mirror.
If concerns over money arise, set them aside and know that you will be shown ways to purchase or obtain this item. If your desire is a mate, let go of a specific person and allow the right and perfect person for you to manifest. Perhaps it is a new job or relocation that is the object of your desire. Visualize your day-to-day activities at this new place. Check your attitude and how you present yourself to your new co-workers and neighbors. Perhaps you wish to be called by a different name. Introduce yourself to others using that name and notice how it feels to you.
Use this process for whatever you wish to manifest in your life. The main obstacle to obtaining the life of your dreams is the wall of protection you have built. You can begin dismantling the wall in this instant by releasing the fears you have of being hurt or unworthy. Work past your issues of trust that stem from lies and hurts from the past.
Have the courage to move forward and take the steps necessary to create what you wish to experience. Let go of the need to impress others and your concerns about what others may think of you. This is your life; choose what you want. Allow others to choose their own path of experiences. Learn to support each other no matter how crazy one’s dreams may appear to be.
Which is better, to have lived life to its fullest or to have simply lived? Which do you prefer, a humdrum life or a life brimming with happiness and joy? Regain your sense of adventure and wonder that you had as an inquisitive child. Find joy in everything you do. Remember yesterday’s example regarding washing dishes? There is joy to be found in even the most menial tasks.
In the next few days, take time to return and visualize your dream into existence. Find ways to clarify your dream. Perhaps you will write affirmations on paper and put them in prominent places where you will see them. Some people enjoy making visualization boards by pasting the objects of their desire on a wall and spending time dreaming the dream, using their emotions to generate the courage needed to take action. Others simply write down their wish list in order to clarify what they desire.
Once your intentions are clear and stated orally, mentally or in print, your Angels and Guides will start working to assist you in manifesting your dream. Know that the intention must be clear. Let go of expectations of the exact circumstances that will lead to your desired result. Keep working daily on releasing any blocks and fears that pop up along the way.
Watch for synchronicities that are like signposts along the trail that help you stay on your Path. Know that at any time you can choose a different path or change the goal. You will find that once you release a specific fear, another door will open and allow you to move closer to what you wish to experience.
Let us say that you want to purchase a car. Your initial dream was a used car in decent condition because you still had the block that you can’t afford a new car. Once you release the blocks associated with not enough money, you allow yourself to dream bigger and go for a new car. As you get more excited and the reality of a new car becomes more attainable, you start looking at new cars on the road and visiting several car dealerships. Then while test-driving a new Prius, something clicks and you can see and feel yourself driving a car like this.
Now that you have taken steps to manifest a new car, your visualization sessions will be more pronounced. You can remember the smell of the new Prius, you have chosen the colors you want for the interior and exterior. You see yourself driving to work and home. You hear the sound of the engine and feel the wind as you drive with the window down.
Next step is how to finance this vehicle. It is not uncommon for people to receive an unexpected inheritance or to be the recipient of a gift from another. Perhaps at the dealership they are able to give you an offer you can afford, even if you have a history of bad credit. Dream the dream, make it as real as possible. Look for ways to make it happen. Let go of thoughts of lack and unworthiness. Break through old fears by pressing forward. Fill your heart with joy and gratitude for the blessings you already have. Experience the dream as though it is already happening, for it is.
There are many movies and books available that offer suggestions on how to create your reality. They are all valid, although they have different approaches. Know the uni-verse is just that, one voice, and it is here to support you in any activity or event you want to experience.
We do wish to give a word of caution at this time. Although this process can give you more wealth and abundance than you can imagine at this moment, know that material objects are not a source of joy and that with them comes responsibility. We do suggest a life of simplicity, not one in which you become bogged down with toys that need a lot of maintenance.
The other main ingredient to living a life of joy, is gratitude. Be thankful in each and every moment for the wisdom you have and the knowledge you are gaining. In this moment in history, humans are waking up and living consciously very rapidly. Seek to find ways to simplify your life and create joy in yourself and those around you, for this is where you will find satisfaction in all you do. Simply adding material objects to your wish list will not create satisfaction. However, enjoying the fruits of your labor as well as the path you took to obtain them will ensure a life filled with joy and satisfaction.
Know that all things are possible, yet each comes with a price. There is much unrest in your world and obstacles to overcome. Have the courage to move forward and change the laws that no longer serve you and your society. Change the way your children are educated. Force politicians and business leaders to spend your money more wisely.
Pay attention to your ecology and your economy. Most societies have handed over complete power and control to leaders entrusted to represent the people. However, you have found that this type of government has failed you miserably. Instead of complaining, gather together, rise up and demand that changes be made that ensure a future for your children. Pay attention to changes you can make in your life that will make the world a better place.
Know that your thoughts carry much weight and can be more harmful than throwing plastic bags in the sea. On other days, we have talked more fully on the impact thoughtforms have on your world, so we will not further deliberate on them today. We wish to simply remind you to watch your thoughts, words and actions and to maintain control of your emotions each moment.
This can sound like a huge responsibility and it is. However, with practice and mindful living, you will find it easier to be centered and in joy each moment, no matter what is happening around you. We take leave of you now and wish you the best in creating your reality. Know that you can call on us anytime for support and assistance and for those of you who are here to learn patience, remember to take one step at a time! Do not give up hope that all is possible!
Selamet! Ik 10
MAYAN MESSAGE DAY 63
Akbal 11 Forgive the Past
I am Akbal with the Tone of 11. Welcome to this grand and glorious day of new beginnings filled with the anticipation of future dreams. What do you wish to create? Your future begins now, in this moment. No matter what you have chosen in your past, the Path you walk today will create your future.
Take time to quiet your mind and relax your body. Take a few moments to breathe in and out, releasing the thoughts and cares of the day. Feel your muscles relax while focusing on your breathing. Take a moment to reflect on the circumstances of your life. Feel gratitude for each of the blessings that comes to your mind. Are there any areas of dis-ease or unrest you would like to change? Choose one, it matters not which one for you can return at any time and work on other issues.
Look closely at the problem you wish to focus on today. When did it first appear in your life? What were the circumstances surrounding the event? How did you react at that time? How did any others involved react at that time? Was there something that could have been said or done to resolve the issue when it first arose? If so, take note of this and let it be a reminder to you to have the courage to say what needs to be spoken when future issues arise, so they will not fester and become problematic.
No one has control over what another person feels, thinks, believes or how he behaves. You have control only of yourself and for many this control is rarely contained. Thus, the place to focus on your dis-ease is within yourself. What has caused this unrest in yourself? In what ways did you contribute to the problem?
If it is a physical malady you want to release, know that in most cases, disease is caused by stinking thinking. Thoughtforms that are negative glop onto each other, many times within the person’s auric field. When these collective thoughtforms become denser, they manifest as a malady in the body.
We know this is not true for all things, because many of your current diseases are caused by toxic foods, beauty products and environmental pollution, all created by yourselves. We suggest you take a closer look at the foods you ingest and the lotions you place on your body. Take an active role in cleaning up your environment. Plant a garden and learn to grow your food without pesticides and herbicides. What better ways can you spend your time than enjoying the world around you and learning to take better care of the Earth?
We return to the issue you are focusing on today. Be as objective as possible and honestly review your role in the situation that caused the problem to continue. Is there something you can do to resolve the issue? If you are unable or unwilling to resolve issues with other people, you can still forgive them for their part in the transgression. Simply understand that they made the best choice they could in the circumstance. No matter how you feel they should have reacted, they (and you) were both making choices based on your belief codes. It is only natural that each of you speaks and reacts within your comfort zone. This is why it is so important to be consciously aware of the belief codes that are driving your life.
Many therapists suggest that people write letters to those with whom they are trying to resolve issues. This has advantages, whether you mail the letter or not, for it helps to give the problem clarity. We suggest you write this letter in a way that you accept full responsibility for whatever transpired. This does not mean that you were fully to blame, however it is one method of pulling the reality of your involvement into the open.
It is easy for people to justify everything they say and do by blaming others for all that has transpired. By writing down ways you were responsible for the event, it opens the possibility for you to recognize your role in the upset. Find good friends you can entrust your story with. If your friends are objective and can speak openly and honestly with you, it may be good to relate the event to them and ask their input on how you could have handled the situation better. This entails that both of you have reached a level of maturity in which you can objectively look at both sides of the story. It is also imperative that you are able to receive another’s advice gracefully.
Generally, unresolved issues are relived by repeating your stories over and over to others. The reason is not to resolve the problem, but to gain support that will enable you to be the righteous one or the victim. We do not condone such behavior; it is very detrimental to all involved. As you mature and learn to speak your truth, with integrity, your relationships will blossom and the fighting that is rampant on Earth will significantly lessen. You each have within you the power to be peacemakers. However, your fears and the need to control others or force your beliefs onto others causes you much static.
Once again, we return to the issue that you are focusing on today. Are you able to accept your role in the event? What could you have done better in the situation? Muse on this for a while and in your mind role-play how you can act differently when the same or similar situation arises in the future. Many times, you cannot undo an event, but you can learn from it and make better choices the next time. That is what ascension is all about, learning to master and control your Self.
Can you think of ways to rectify the situation? What will it take? Do you have the courage to take the necessary steps to right the wrong? Perhaps it is time to let go of a belief code that no longer works for you. Have courage to move forward in all you do. A life of wonder and bliss awaits all who have the courage to move past fears and focus on love and gratitude. Focusing on negative thoughts will keep you entrapped in a world of pain and suffering. This is the hell that many of you fear. It is a creation of your own mind. This need not be so. Many of you are so deeply entrenched in your negative outlook on life that you have drowned your sorrows in alcohol or try to reach moments of bliss by ingesting pills.
There is a better way, but you must first gain control of your thoughts. Stop blaming others for anything. Stop viewing yourself as a victim, no matter what the circumstances. If it happened in the past, it is over. Stop worrying about the future, because it isn’t here. Gain control of your life by living in the moment. Look around and find the blessings in your life and give thanks. A grateful heart will open the door to more blessings. When you are locked in despair and victimhood, it is impossible to see the blessings that lie beyond you. Like a horse with blinders, you keep yourself locked in a cycle of despair, not allowing hope to come into your awareness.
Most have to hit bottom before they will even look up or reach out their hand for help. At any moment, any one of you has the ability to have an “Aha!” moment and to choose a completely different path. However, you will never reach this point until you stop your runaway train of negative thinking. How can you do this? It is simple, when you are having negative thoughts, think again. Force yourself to think of something else. This may be difficult in the beginning, for like all habits, it takes practice to undo. However, it is possible, and with practice, it will become easier to let go of old thought patterns and enjoy new, more loving and positive thoughts.
Today we suggest you look deeply at the issue you wish to resolve. Accept the parts that you were responsible for. Forgive others for the role they played that was in disagreement with you. Forgive yourself for your part. Find ways to rectify the situation. Practice ways to react differently in future scenarios. Take any actions necessary to clear the negative energy, whether it is in the form of an apology, a conversation or simply the release of negative energies through the power of forgiveness.
Do not consider yourself a victim. At best, consider the event a valuable learning experience. Many times, the most painful situations you heal in yourself allows you to help another who is going through the same situation. This is the beauty of experience; being able to share and support your fellow man. It is our hope that your heart is open to see the beauty within yourself and all others around you. We invite you to call on us for support and encouragement. You have within you the power to resolve any issue that confronts you. Simply have courage to face these issues and infuse them with love so a clear resolution for what is in your highest good and the good of all can shine forth!
Selamet! Akbal 11
MAYAN MESSAGE DAY 64
Kan 12 The Path to Mastery
I am Kan. Greetings on this magnificent day in which you are given the blessings of fairness and equality! You are blessed with the gift of free will, which allows you to choose whatever path you wish to walk. Will you make choices based on fear or choices made from love of self, others and planet Earth? The choice is yours.
This day of Kan 12 supports your goal to integrate all that you have experienced. Reflect on the knowledge you have gained from your relationships with people, places and events. You have a unique set of circumstances that has given you much to reflect on. The question is how to integrate this knowledge so it becomes a part of you? How will you use these pieces of the puzzle to create your own set of rules and sense of identity? Once integrated, they become who you are and the source from where you pull your strength and courage. It is your wisdom and yours alone.
To be able to share your wisdom with others in a way that does not interrupt their walk of life is an art form. There is a fine line between sharing and expecting others to follow your advice. Whenever you give advice or suggestions to others, pay attention to the purpose behind your action. If on any level you have the expectation that they should follow your advice, your ego is in the way. If you feel any resentment or frustration when others do not do as you suggest, look within yourself to find why you have this pressing need to help or fix others.
Can you not see that when you push your ideas onto others, that you are disempowering them? Your actions tell others they are inferior and incapable of making good choices for themselves. This creates separation and is the basis for all unrest and wars among you.
Observe Nature. Have you ever witnessed a flower scolding another for not protecting themselves better from the wind? How do animal mothers teach their young? By example. When they are very young, the mother will keep them close to home until the time arises when the young need to learn to hunt and fend for themselves. Mother animals are well aware of the dangers that lurk in their surroundings. Yet they do not coddle their young and try to keep them from experiencing life.
Your society for generations has been filled with over-protective mothers trying to protect their young from experiencing the hurts they have gone through. Although there is nothing wrong with this behavior, it tends to create neurotic and fearful children who grow into adults who are always on the lookout for possible blows from others. Many of you are so distrustful of your fellow man that you do all in your power to stay safe within your little bubble of protection. Where is the joy in such a life?
As a result, there are generations of fearful people pressing their belief codes onto others. When one does not follow the prescribed path called “normal,” he finds himself ostracized by his peers and ridiculed for being a free thinker. This behavior has gone on long enough. It is time for each of you to take responsibility for yourself. Allow others to follow their path and discover what lies ahead without fear. Coddling or enabling others only stunts their growth and gives you an imbalanced sense of superiority.
Many of you will argue that you only have the best interest of others in mind. In some cases, this may be so. The true test comes in how you feel or react when others have no interest in what you are sharing with them. If on any level, you feel discontent when your advice is not heeded, then you can be assured that you are being overly concerned and righteous.
Perhaps others make choices you are certain will endanger their lives. It is important to share your knowledge with a child who has never experienced specific events in order for them to become aware of the danger. However, there comes a time when the child grows up, fully knowing the dangers that lurk ahead. She may decide to move forward in the experience anyway. This is her desire, the path she has chosen. Allow her to do so. Rather than forcing your opinions on others, allow them to have their own experiences.
Thoughtforms attach themselves to similar thoughtforms. When you seed your fears into another person’s consciousness, there comes a time when that person may adopt your belief codes. Sad indeed would the world be if all the river runners, mountain climbers and joy seekers had followed the advice of their parents and peers who injected their fears into these adventuresome ones. Without the adventurers, you would all still be living in the cradle of society with much of the land mass and oceans withholding their beauty from you. How much of this blessed Earth would still be untouched by human hands and hidden from your view?
Each of you is unique. We ask that you look at each other with a fresh set of eyes. Know that you all come from the same Source and that one day you will return to that Source. Instead of focusing on your differences, start to bridge the gaps of separation by recognizing your sameness. There is not one among you that is better than another. There is not one among you that is not capable of being a fully realized Spiritual being. Each of you has the capacity to live a full life. Support each other no matter how strange or frightening their choices may be to you. Know that each person is responsible for the choices they make. Allow yourself to be all that you can be. Work through the fears and frustrations you encounter every day. Dream big, for all is attainable.
When you see another that you judge as helpless or ignorant, do not be fooled. These people are just as capable as you, and many times have demonstrated more intelligence in their way of life. Many that are homeless are there because they do not want to live in society’s shadow. Many imbeciles are full of love in their heart and can be your greatest teachers. Do not feel sorry for those with congenital diseases. Instead of averting your eyes when you pass them, look them in the eye and smile. Push through uncomfortable situations and get to know your fellow man deeper.
When you look at others with pity, you are judging them as victims. When you ignore those who have less, you are judging them as inferior. When you are cold to others, you are telling them they are not worthy of your attention. Who is to blame for all the unrest in the world? Each and every one of you. In order to have a world full of peace, love and joy, each of you must find it within yourself first.
Sharing your experiences and wisdom with others is crucial. However, we see that much of what you have to offer others is done in a condescending manner. Although many of you think you are doing others a favor by giving advice, your approach turns them off and closes the door. Do not play god and assume that you know what is best for the other. This only creates more distance between you.
When you can share with others your experiences and truly not be concerned how they are received by others, then you are on the path to freedom. Whenever you share with others and have the fear or mistaken notion that your information is what they need, you set yourself up for failure. To be successful in all your endeavors, be satisfied in your heart that you planted a seed coming from your sense of truth and integrity.
Know that all seeds fall on different soil. Some of your seeds will fall on rock and wither in the sun. Others will fall on poor soil and the plant will struggle all its life. Some seeds will drown in the rain or be washed out to sea. Many seeds will be covered with soil and remain dormant for years. Other seeds will fall on enriched soil and sprout into magnificent plants.
See your advice the same way. Some will be heeded and some will not. If you are honest with yourself, on reflection you can look back and find numerous examples of good advice that you took which led you to discontentment. It may have been advice from the heart and shared with love. It may have been advice that was beneficial to others, but it just didn’t suit you, and now you live your life as a result of it.
How many times did you receive “bad” advice that you didn’t take, only to find out that it would have made your life much more enriching? We say there is no good or bad advice, they are simply choices that are presented to you. It is up to you to choose those that feel appropriate.
How do you feel when someone insists you follow their advice? Have you ever felt inferior, stupid, mistrusted your intuition or told you are stubborn when you chose not to follow their advice? Does this bring you closer or separate you from this person? How do you feel when others share their experiences with you then tell you they support you in whatever choice you decide to make? Can you feel the difference? When you give advice, yet remain supportive, you will draw others closer to you.
If you receive advice from others and make your decision based on what feels right for you, then you will enrich your life. It is also important that the one receiving the advice not judge the one giving the advice. It is a mark of maturity leading to mastery of Self when you allow others to choose their path, no matter how different it is from your own. We invite you now to quiet your mind and to take several moments to reflect on ways you may be forcing your beliefs on others. Also, take time to reflect on ways you may be condemning those you feel are imposing their beliefs on you. It is a two-way door that most of you are involved in.
Pay attention to your interactions with others and be on the lookout for times when you are involved in either side of this issue. How can you best share your experiences without attachment to the results? Pay closer attention to the reasons why you feel it is important to give advice. Many times people are simply venting; they are not looking for outside solutions. It is wise to ask others if they are just venting or if they sincerely want your input. Honor their answer.
You all have different ways of resolving problems. You all are on a different path, with a unique set of circumstances. Learn from your differences. Share your joys and sorrows. Do not look at yourself or others as victims; this is a tough belief code to extract. Find ways to support and encourage each other. You will find others flock to you for support when they know your heart is compassionate and your words are kind. Those who play the role of victim will be attracted to those who impose their ideas onto others. These people need a savior because they have yet to learn that all they need is already inside them. The saviors are the ones who feel they have the right answers for others. This false sense of superiority will eventually lead to their downfall.
Without saviors, there is no need for victims. When each of you learns to support each other from a sense of balance and equality, the true essence of brotherhood will shine. It is in this environment that you will nurture a society of adventurous, free-thinking, healthy individuals. Until then, you will continue coddling others and creating victims and helpless individuals who need others to tell them what to do. Which do you choose?
If you choose a society of healthy individuals, what steps do you need to take to create this? Learn the fine line between supporting and enabling others. It is not always easy to see the difference. However, you will know what you are sowing by what is reaped. When a person returns to thank you for assistance you gave them and they are moving forward towards a more satisfying life, know that you were helpful to that individual. Do not expect this to happen, but rejoice when it does.
Know that others may resist your teachings in the beginning, but a seed was planted that may later be sprouted by another. Acknowledge your part and be appreciative that you have helped another along their Path. Do not expect this to happen, but rejoice when it does.
Find ways to assist without expectations. True Masters assist those who come to them; they do not seek the audience of others. They listen intently and offer advice only when asked. Many times the Master does not offer anything more than a question such as, “What do you think is best?” This allows the seeker the opportunity to use his capabilities to resolve his own problems. Thus a new Master is born, one who has the ability to take control of his own life, regardless of what others think.
We suggest you master yourself fully before attempting to create Masters out of others. Like attracts like. When you have mastered your own life, others who are ready to do the same will seek you out for advice and support. Until then, you are simply throwing your pearls before swine and your words will fall on deaf ears. When it matters not to you if others follow your advice, then know you are on your way to mastery, for no one else will be able to influence who you are. You will have become your own Master!
