Transcending History

Art by Holly Sierra

Humanity is awakening from its slumber with the desire for change, the passion for transformation and the fire of alchemy. We’ve all been releasing the past and collapsing timelines like crazy over this past year. It feels like the ballon of all that humanity has been holding onto from the past is simply being deflated because the current energies will no longer support it.

For thousands of years, we have allowed those outside of us to dictate what is truth. The truth and mis-truths are now beginning to surface. For eons of time, “His-story” has been written in our textbooks and declared as truth. Whereas “Her-story” has been hidden and disregarded. She’s been walking behind the veils, hidden in mystery. But today’s world calls for a re-balancing that requires the revelations of truth with the unification and full participation of both the masculine and the feminine.

Humanity has come to the point in which we are asking: What is the Truth?
I venture to say, the truth doesn’t reside in the “story”, his-tory, her-story, or the media’s story for they are only stories. I dare say we’ve all had experiences where our families or friends gather, many stories are shared and years later the same event will have sprung into many different versions of the same “story”, depending on the storyteller. None are right nor wrong. They are simply different perceptions based on how each of us are experiencing life, just as we are all different aspects of the same Infinite Source. Therefore the stories will differ according to the storyteller.

The ancient ones told wonderful stories. We are all entertained and drawn in by a good story. So they often spoke in parables. What better way to hold our attention long enough to open our hearts to allow more Love to flow into our being.

These stories, these parables, are not sacred Truth to be interpreted as the law of the land with concrete rules of judgment and persecution. Those are the laws of man. These poignant stories were meant to introduce us to the laws of the Universe. These parables, when heard with an open heart, can stimulate the human mind to expand our consciousness to see and hear with the Divine Mind of which we are all a part. When we let go of the “story”, with an open heart and mind, the essence of the Infinite Source has a place to enter our awareness and our consciousness expands.

It is important that we know the truth. But since we are in constant growth and expansion, the truth is also in constant expansion. Do not judge or regret what has been obscured, for nothing is ever lost. By opening to that which is now being revealed and transcending the old with love and compassion, we can allow it to simply dissolve of its own accord. We need not place blame upon those who have written or decreed otherwise. Nor do we do not need to initiate new wars to bring it to justice. That is simply a waste of our precious time and energy. Instead, why not release that which no longer serves and create anew.

All the Wisdom and Truth we will ever need lies within us. Seek and ye shall find. Be still and awaken to the truth. As such, we each stand in the sovereign truth of our own Divinity.

Have the courage to be all that you are and to always live a life inspired by Love.
No one of us is more or less important than another. Together, we can walk with the purity of heart as exemplars and allow others to recognize that within them self.

This can all be done with ease and grace, free of the drama of duality’s highs and lows when we’re flowing in harmony with Source and surrendered to our heart’s desires. I’m feeling huge gratitude for all the revelations of truth. And I’m reveling in the freedom of transcending our antiquated history.

Transformation of Anger


Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

The year of my Ultimate Love Affair

self love

It’s a dark rainy day here in the Pacific Northwest and I’ve never felt more content. There was a time I might have allowed days such at this to depress me, especially when they string themselves together for days or weeks at a time during the winter months. Instead, I recognize the value of snuggling in with a warm cuppa whatever pleases me in the moment and a keyboard at my fingertips. Today is December 29th, the day before New Year’s Eve. As we are often wont to do, my mind is wandering back over this past year. As I’m doing so I realize. . .

This past year has been my most Stellar Year ever!!!

And I have nothing, not a single thing to show for it. I have accomplished nothing. I have not moved to a new home, initiated a new relationship or a new job as so many others have done this year. I haven’t added anything to my life. In fact, I have less now than I had at the beginning of this year. So much of my prior life has dissolved over the past few months and I’ve passed on many of the physical things that no longer resonate with me to be shared by those who will benefit from them. Therefore, not only have I nothing to show for this year, I own less than I have in a very long time.

Although I haven’t gained anything in the material world, what I have gained has no measure. I am more abundant, happy and content than I have ever been. How do you measure such things?

At the beginning of 2017, I knew this would be a year like no other. While others were writing their lists and repeating their new year’s resolutions like mantras, I made a choice to step into the unknown and allow my Soul to lead the way.

Without realizing it 2017 became the year of my Ultimate Love Affair.

And everything in my life has changed because of it. Although Love has been courting me for quite some time, this was the year I finally fell head over heels in Love with my self. I always wondered about that phrase to “fall in love”. Shouldn’t it be to “rise in love”? This past year I finally understood the depth of “falling in love”. For this past year I have delved deeply into a passionate loving relationship with my human self, nurturing all those fallen parts of my self that got bruised or lost along the way. All those aspects of my self that had been hiding in the shadows for fear of not being good enough to be loved. I simply made a choice to open my arms and invite them all into one big love fest. . . the good, the bad and the ugly.

As a result, what I have experienced this past year has been an ever expanding Love of self. The parts of me that felt most unloved immediately pushed themselves to the front like two year olds with their demanding “me first” attitude. Oh how much I learned from these wee wise ones that our society had sent to the corner for an extended “time out” because they didn’t fit into the pre-made boxes. No wonder they became so vocal! (she says with a chuckle and a wink of the eye). With the patience of Love, each one was intimately heard, honored, and embraced until my Inner Sanctuary became more quiet and spacious, which reflected in my outer world as well.

The more I loved my self, the more I began to love my physical body in ways I had harbored judgment in the past, seeing it as the blessed temple that embodies all of who I Am. Thus I cleared much of its density, activated my LightBody and began the process of rejuvenation, which progressed to the integration of both my human and Soul attributes as my SoulBody. (see my prior post “Behind the Scenes of Soul Embodiment” for more about the SoulBody). This is a new way of being and I’m still playing with it much like a child with a new toy. I’m like a kid at Christmas bubbling over with joy because I just unwrapped the gifts for which I have been yearning for a very long time, lifetimes. Walking this planet as a conscious embodied Soul is what I have always aspired to do. Indeed we are constantly changing and expanding our consciousness so this is not the end of the story. It is a new beginning as we embark upon another new year.

By choosing to live in a small home, free of the cost and eternal maintenance of extraneous things, I am experiencing a spaciousness of both time and space. Time has dissolved, allowing me to live free of the mind’s restraints and cycles that held me captive. Without the interference of those disruptive aspects that have now come into the fold of Love, time becomes irrelevant for I am able to live in the moment. The past has been freed and the future has no need for planning.

This opens a whole new world of potentials beyond anything the mind could envision!!! Words like abundance have disappeared from my vocabulary because I now live in the infinite that only knows abundance so there is no need to speak of it anymore. I simply live it because Love knows no other way.

I now have the spaciousness of an open clear mind, able to recognize and honor that each person has their own soul path for their own unique growth and expansion. Therefore, there is no room or reason for my judgment or interference. This has freed me to love them where they are because there are no more battles to fight, personally or for the collective. For even the human collective has its own soul path which needs to play out without my interference. The most beneficial thing I can offer to the world is my own Love of self which ripples throughout the entire consciousness. Herein lies my peace and contentment with life as it continues to reveal itself unto me.

There aren’t any shadows lurking in the corners anymore because my Light shines brightly. All of my love and light dimmers have been loved into higher service. So BRIGHT it is!!! I know this can frighten some people because they are afraid of what they may see. And that’s okay because I will happily hand out sunglasses for those who would like more time in their own sacred darkness along their unique soul path until they are ready to remove them with their own divine timing. BTW: I also have some rose colored glasses available for anyone who chooses to partake of the Ultimate Love Affair. 😉

Amidst all the chaos and turmoil happening in the world around us, my experience has been a year of sweetness as I continually immerse my self in Love. Tears of gratitude and joy are overflowing from my depths for the courage it has taken to face that which I was afraid was unlovable. Today I can honestly say, I so Love ME, all of ME. I feel this Love as my Soul feels it for my human self. I’m simultaneously feeling the Love my human self feels for my Soul.

As another year draws to a close. . . Here I AM, having experienced the melding of ME. . . My Energies, my human and my Soul. . .All of ME as the purity of Source.

Therefore, THIS has been a Stellar Year!!!
Although I have little to show as manifestation goes, what I have is ME.

The Gift of Emotional Freedom


The events of this past week have all of us pondering deep questions about ourselves, society and the collective consciousness concerning sexual abuse. The blow up surrounding Harvey Weinstein set a whole chain of events in motion. There are many perspectives I could delve into from my personal one, to the feminine or masculine collective, to that of society in general. The only one I can honestly address is the question that popped up for me personally.

Why was I not drawn to join the “#Me Too” movement on fb/twitter?

I too had stories to tell, just as so many other women have. Notice I said “had” because none of those stories are active or vital for me anymore. That doesn’t make them any less real or excuse anyone’s behavior. It simply means I have done a lot of inner healing and my old stories no longer impact me so I chose to let them go a long time ago.

Because I was not pinged by these stories, i.e., emotionally upset, I could have shared my story from that aspect. From a spiritual or psychological aspect of how I no longer carry this anger, how I’ve healed this wound within me. Perhaps that would inspire or help other women to heal within themselves and honor themselves with self love and appreciation.

I am humbled by the outpouring of men who are embarrassed and apologizing for men in general. I could have written about my gratitude for their supportive words and actions.

But I was not drawn to actively engage, nor repelled into silence. Although I have immense compassion for the men and women who have been sharing their stories and those who are still not comfortable enough to speak the words, I have been watching it unfold as a neutral observer, emotionally unaffected by it. So again I ask, “Why is that?” This morning I awoke with a very clear answer to my question.

I am not drawn to engage in this public movement because I am not emotionally affected by it. Coming from a pure heart, I do not see victims and perpetrators. I see human beings playing out their stories. Stories that have been stored in the human mind matrix for eons of time.

Notice the similarity of these two words: Stories…. stored.
Stories are our own perceptions of events that have emotionally impacted us. There are many things we’ve experienced in life that did not get stored in our mind matrix. We experienced them in the moment and they simply passed on through. For instance, do you remember anything eventful about your last drive to the grocery store ? Unless something emotional happened it was basically a non-event , no story. It’s only our emotional experiences that are stored in the human mind matrix. They can be happy, sad, anger, grief, shame, or any number of emotions that stored these stories in our mind matrix. In addition, these emotions are also stored in our physical bodies, stimulating a chemical reaction interpreted as pain. I can attest to this as a physical therapist. How often I have worked with patients whose trauma/stories were released once the emotional pain was released from the physical body.

I have come to realize that emotions are the link between the unconscious and the conscious mind. When an emotion is pinged by a present event, the mind matrix acts very similar to AI (artificial intelligence) and pulls up all the unconscious stories that relate to that emotion.

At this point we have a choice. We can play out the old stories by pointing fingers at others to substantiate ourselves and continually add to the emotional clusterfuck. This what we have become accustomed to doing until the mind matrix goes into overdrive and we become emotionally overwhelmed either throwing us into depression/unconsciousness, acting out in a violent way, or eventually bursting us free by saying “Enough!”.

Once we’ve screamed “Enough!”, we think we need to dig into all our fears and shadow stuff, poke around and process all the details. But what if we could simply remove all dissonant vibrations from our energy field without going through the mind matrix? Why not release it emotionally without getting caught in the quagmires of the mind? What does that mean? It means I don’t need to know the details, what it is, where it came from, who did what to whom, or how to overcome it. Source doesn’t care about those things, why do we? Isn’t it time we learn to trust our Self enough to drop the protective walls constructed by our mind to see ourselves as whole and perfect, just as Source does?

When we are conscious with our emotions rather than the stories, we’re able to accept responsibly (= ability to respond) for our prior actions, without blame to ourselves or any others, in the same way Source sees us. Remembering we did the best we could in each situation, there is no need for blame. This dissolves the charge of the emotion and the story dissolves along with it. Each time we do this, more of the mind matrix unravels. As simple as this sounds, and it is simple, it does require vigilance so as not to retreat into our old patterns. The more often we do this, the more unconscious stories dissolve from the mind matrix until there are no longer any errant stories to draw upon.

This allows us to live in the moment, free of unconscious stories, free of the human mind matrix, free of the collective consciousness. We are now free to draw upon the wisdom of Divine Intelligence, instead of AI (artificial intelligence).

I realize this is why I was not drawn to engage in the “Me Too” movement. This is an aspect of my life in which I have freed my self of the emotional ping. And yes, I could get up on a soapbox and campaign with other women and men. Silence is not the answer for it only empowers the unconscious. Indeed it is important to shine the spotlight on this part of the human mind matrix by bringing it into the consciousness so these emotions/stories can be healed. It’s important to bear witness. But it does not feel empowering for me to re-engage in a story that is no longer mine. It feels more empowering and uplifting to hold this sacred space where suffering and abuse can be transformed by sharing my awareness as an avenue of healing that can be useful not only for these atrocities but for all emotional trauma.

When we are willing to consciously acknowledge and respond to raw emotion with love and grace, rather than the stories that have been stored, we empower ourselves to dissolve the old human matrix that has held us captive for eons of time. In this way we’re no longer engaged in AI. Instead, we’re engaged with the heart, which is the cauldron of Divine wisdom and creativity. We’re able to let go of what has been and embrace the new from which we can create a world that is more loving and gracious to live in relationship with all of humanity.

New Roles of Compassion


We have been witnessing one disaster after another, more so in this past year than ever before. Despite all the chaos, I have continually been guided to hold the high road, to shine the light, to remind others of the joy that is equally present.

I don’t tune into the media’s frenzy, engage in political or religious debates, or fight for causes. Nor do I judge those who choose to do so. I simply turn the other cheek, as Yeshua/Jesus says. I turn my face away from that which I have no control over and do what I can do in the presence of my own life and my immediate surroundings. I continue to do what my Soul is guiding me to do. And for each of us that may look very different, for we each have our own unique soul path.

However, with all the current disasters there are moments I question what feels like my lack of compassion. That’s when I remember the conversation I had with Quan Yin years ago with her reflections on compassion:

“Compassion is often misconstrued as sympathy or pity, which draws us more deeply into the stories of victimhood. But true compassion is quite the opposite. Compassion honors the sovereign right for each person to experience life according to their own soul’s journey. When we choose compassion we are free of judgement and there is no such thing as a victim, for both parties are playing a role in their soul’s growth. True compassion is fostered in our acceptance rather than our scrutiny. When we listen with the intent of truly hearing one another, compassion can find a place in our lives, giving birth to the unconditional Love and acceptance of all human beings, especially ourselves. That, my love, is the ultimate freedom that comes with compassion”
“So how does compassion couple with forgiveness?” I ask.
“Forgiveness is the ultimate act of letting go and freeing ourselves from the endless cycles of judgment, blame, shame and guilt. Judgment stems from our expectations and beliefs. It’s our own expectations, not someone one else’s, that set us up for the fall. Forgiveness is not directed toward another. It is a precious gift to one’s self. For-giving is the giving forth of Love. Once we love ourselves, compassion becomes a natural way of life. When we live in unconditional love and compassion, there’s nothing to forgive. You see, it’s all rooted in Love.”
“Well, that’s certainly a new perception. I always thought forgiveness was about someone else, us absolving them for what they did.” I replied.
Quan Yin smiles, “I think you’re confused, dear one. That’s called Love.”


Even with that knowing I will occasionally pause and question my soul’s guidance. How can I possibly post something joyful on fb when the rest of humanity is in despair? Where is my compassion? Should I not be feeling the loss others are feeling?

That’s when my Soul popped in with an answer:

“Humanity is moving through its own chaos and turmoil as it transitions into a new world. If you were to emotionally hook into every disaster present on the planet you would soon become lost in the anguish, despair and misery that is prevalent. If you gave away all your energy and resources, then who would be available to forge a new path and light the way for others?

YOU are compassionate by nature. 
There is nothing you need do to prove this to yourself or to others. There is no such thing as a compassion yardstick to measure how compassionate you or anyone else is. If you are not acting in a way that others consider to be compassionate, it’s because there is an old concept of compassion. You have been taught that compassion requires you to give yourself away in order to be compassionate in the eyes of others. You have since learned otherwise.

You have learned that the heart will always act compassionately free of the interference of the mind which is simply ego’s way of making you feel good about the person it thinks you should be. True compassion is innate. It is who you are and you demonstrate it with a humility in ways you do not even realize.

Your true compassion is the expression of your Soul, reacting as your GodSelf, seeing all in divine order. Source does not lower the vibration to match others. Source holds the highest vibration and says. . . come, come join me here in the joy of life.”


Therefore, I see myself in a new light of compassion. The same way the soul is compassionate, simple and pure, without lowering my vibration to match those around me. Each has their own way of expressing compassion. My expression is one of shining the light on the path of divinity that is available for all of us, without which we would all be wallowing in despair.

I share this because I can feel the angst of so many who are being pulled into the mire when their soul is asking them to be free of it. This is especially true of the empath who feels “everything”. That doesn’t mean we don’t reach out a helping hand. It means we do it with joy in our hearts because we see something much better for all of humanity. It means we honor the divinity of each person’s unique soul path. It means we are free of the old teachings of what is required to be a “good” person. It means we can hold out our hand just as Source does and say. . . Come, come join me in the Joy of Life.

The Love Affair of the Soul and the Human

Tree Spirits by Liza Paizis

Last year at this time I had one of the most lucid and profound dreams I’ve ever experienced. During this dream, a former lover from many years ago was walking toward me. I could feel an abundance of love coming from him. The closer he got to me the more love I was feeling. At some point I realized this love was not coming from him. He was simply the reflection of my love for my self. As he continued walking toward me this love became so overwhelming fear burst forth from within me. Fear that it would overpower and kill me. I wanted to scream out, “Stop! I can’t take anymore.” But the words would not come. From somewhere beyond this fear I knew I needed to simply allow it to engulf me. The only thing I could do was surrender to this overwhelming, overpowering destructive force of love. Once I released all resistance, I did indeed die.

I melted into a puddle on the floor. He who had appeared as my old lover disappeared. I was naked and alone in an empty abyss. The old me had died. Everything that was not of love had been obliterated and died along with me.

And then little pin points of light began to appear all around me, creating a mandala of sorts. The pattens kept changing, much like a kaleidoscope. Some of these pieces were glowing from within. Others were rather dense and murky, gaining clarity as they were drawn toward me from out of the darkness. I observed with fascination as this process continued, until I realized these were all aspects of me, pieces of me. Many of them had been hidden in the shadows, tossed away by my prior judgements. Others had been locked within walls that were now instantaneously melting from the Love radiating from within me. I watched as all of me, all of my aspects gathered together into wholeness once again dancing in beautiful patterns of radiant color and light. At this point I fell into a very deep sleep and slept for many hours.

When I finally awoke, life looked and felt very different to me. This was not a dream. This was the realization of my Self as the purity of Divine Love and the acceptance of all of Who I Am, as my Soul knows me to be. I could not have orchestrated or thought this into being with my mind, even from within a meditative state. I could only do this from an expanded state of consciousness. Therefore my Soul gifted me with this lucid dream. The gift of knowing that I Am Love and all the aspects of me are loved and honored without any judgement. This knowing that it’s safe for All of me to come home, to share the experiences that life has offered me, all the stories, all the pain, all the joys. Each one a facet of the Love and radiance of Who I Am.

Now here I am a year later and what a year it has been!!!
All these pesky aspects that have been awakened or released from their walled in prisons have been elbowing their way into my heart to be enveloped in Love. Some of them have been an absolute joy to embrace. Others, I cringe to say, have pulled me into their own darkness before I was able to see clearly by the spark of Love that was always present. The gift of Divine Love is that I have surrendered the fight. My arms are always wide open no matter what presents, or how it presents. Love always knows what to do. Therefore I simply surrender it all to Love and allow it to sort itself out without the need to defend or interfere.

This has been a time for diving deeply into realizing more of my Self and integrating this new expanded awareness. Nothing else matters to me anymore. It’s as if it doesn’t exist. A few days ago I tried reading a story someone wrote about her spiritual journey. In the past this would have been very engaging to me but it now feels very old and boring. That’s how my old stories feel to me as well. I have no interest in them or in the mainstream world that is no longer my reality.

A few days ago I asked myself: What do I want to do now that I have this new awareness? What reality do I choose to create? Today this question feels unimportant to me. It feels like it was coming from my human restlessness. How much of that restlessness is the human’s need to feel worthy of itself? My current perception of Love has quelled that question. Quite frankly I have no desire to “do” anything. I am simply basking in this new realization of who I Am. I don’t know what my life will look like from a human perspective and I feel no hurry to take any action in that direction yet. 

This morning feels very quiet, free of any external noise, free of any thoughts. I’m feeling the deep contentment of “I Exist, I Am, I Am Here.” I’m sensing my human aspects and my Soul embracing this new passion with and for each other. I feel no desire to take any action right now, no desire to “do” anything. Instead, I’m feeling drawn to savor this relationship, to go more deeply into this passion and expand upon it.

While reading the book “Act of Consciousness” by Adamus Saint-Germain through Geoffrey & Linda Hoppe, I came upon a passage that clarified things for me. “The divine distills every experience into wisdom.” Taking the liberty to paraphrase it further: The soul wants to experience just for the sake of experiencing. It doesn’t need to validate itself for it is already complete in the knowing that it exists. The soul takes everything the human experiences, distills it into its pure wisdom, drinks that in and falls more deeply in love with itself, again and again and again with every new experience.

Last year at this time when I had what I call my Enlightenment Dream, I realized “I Am Love.” I thought that was the ultimate sense of loving one’s self. Indeed, that was true at the time and. . . I have continued loving my self more and more and more. This is an ongoing expansion of Love, a love affair between the human and the Soul. This is the true relationship I have always been searching for.

I sometimes think I would like a partner. Then I realize I really don’t want to live with anyone else right now. I thought I did, but that was my old dream of home and family which I’ve already experienced in this lifetime. My ultimate desire is a relationship with my Self. I was thinking how nice it would be to share my experiences with someone or to offer my love through my actions with another.

In many ways I am already doing this. Isn’t that what my daily journaling is? Conversations with my Soul. Conversations with my I Am. Conversations with the different aspects of my Self, the aspects I have created to experience more of who I Am. What I am doing now is embracing all of my self into wholeness once again, consciously distilling all the stories into their wisdom and loving my self again and again and again.

Indeed, the Soul has already done this. But my human self has only recently become aware of this. Through the grace of my Soul, there is nothing that needs to be done, no searching, no processing. Simply allowing these aspects to present themselves, to come out of the human shadows to be loved and accepted, just as the Soul has already done. Like the prodigal’s daughter returning home, this is a sweet experience. It need not be difficult. It need not take any effort. I realize, the more I sit quietly gazing out into nature, allowing the space for this to happen, the more effortless it becomes. Ease and Grace has become my way of being and Love is Who I Am.

After so much struggle in my life, how simple and easy this feels to me now. How satisfying. How fulfilling. How empty I feel of the stories and the human yearnings. And how full I feel of my Self. Enlightened Embodiment. This is what it is. Embodying All of Who I Am, here and now in this physical body. Human and Divine in sweet delicious consciousness.

At War with Love


Many years ago while I was facilitating a meditation circle Archangel Michael came to me and asked our circle to hold Saddam Hussein in Love. I was a bit hesitant to ask my circle to do this, but after a brief discussion we all agreed. It was an interesting experience for all of us since it was the first time we’d ever done anything like this. I could “see” Saddam fading in and out of the middle of our circle. Eventually he disappeared altogether. At the time I thought we had failed in our mission. But Michael assured me that our assistance was effective. 

Several days later Michael called upon me again while I was in personal meditation. He asked me to once again reach out and surround Saddam with Love. Once again Saddam continued to fade in and out as I surrounded him in Love. Michael asked me to do this on a daily basis which I did. After a few days Saddam no longer faded out. I could feel him sitting in the energy of Love, sometimes absorbing it, sometimes at war with it.

One day he turned to face me with tears in his eyes. I was able to see his anguish, how he had been abused as a very young child. He said, “Until you appeared, I have never known love.” From that point on his presence was very strong and he never fought the Love that was being shared. A few weeks later he once again spoke with me, this time I could feel that he was a changed man. As he told me his story, often sobbing between his words, immense healing was happening within this man who has been acting with such incredible cruelty toward humanity. By the end of his story he offered his gratitude for my perseverance in continuing to love him, despite his actions. He told me he was a changed man and intended to do what he could to correct his errors. He also told me that if he did a complete about face with his actions he would be persecuted by his followers and lose any opportunity to make amends. Instead he would need to be working behind the scenes as best he could. He asked me to continue to love him and support his new efforts, which I was very happy to do. The world will never know how he changed his life from that point forward. But I do. Although Saddam has forever been written down in history as a evil terrorist, he was one of my Master Teachers. He taught me how to Love beyond that which we see with our human eyes.

I share this story because there is so much hatred being perpetrated in the world. If humanity is going to survive it has to stop!! WE hold the keys to stop the “War with Love”. For those of us who have known love it makes no sense to be at war with love. But for those who have never been loved or have been persecuted in the name of love it has become a war with love.

We are ALL born as Love Incarnate. Every single one of us. Hatred is something that is taught. Cruelty is something that is taught. Love is our natural way of being and yet we seem to have to fight for it. How screwy is that!!!

The Love I am referring to is not a love we need to conjure up from inside ourselves. It’s not a love that requires deserving. That is human love. I am referring to Divine Love, Love incarnate, the Love we’re born as. If you’d like to learn more about this Love, read my prior post “Crazy Love” .

Right now we are watching Native American tribes in Prayer at Standing Rock North Dakota protecting our waterways while being faced down by DAPL militia men with weapons. Militia who are being commanded by men who do not know love. Men, who like Saddam, may never have known love. Men who have been taught to use cruelty to demean and overpower other human beings in order to survive.

We are being given an opportunity to BE Love, to teach Love by being the example of Love. Even that may not be enough to penetrate the shields many have placed around themselves. What we can do is Pray Love, Pray Peace. We can do as I did many years ago with Saddam. We can unceasingly surround them in Love until they feel the presence of Love. If a man like Saddam can feel Love then presidents, governors, sheriffs and militia men can as well.

Our Native American tribes are teaching by example. I invite you to step up and join them by putting your own anger and indignation aside for the crimes being perpetrated against humanity. I invite you to find the peace within you, the Peace which passeth understanding. Together we can do this. Together we can eradicate the hatred, hostility and violence in the world. This is our opportunity to radiate our Love and Light to transform the world, one Loving moment at a time. For as the Lakota say. . . Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ. . . we are all related.

We are approaching the time of year when every major religion is preparing to celebrate their holy days of Love and Light. For many this is a time of gift giving. What better gift than to surround those in Love who are in most need of it, be it our family, friends, the militia, the homeless man on the street or our world leaders.

I acknowledge and honor the many who are already doing this. I bow to you in reverence for it is not always an easy thing to do amidst emotional turmoil. As a result of our altruism, I see our Tribe of Love and Light growing every day. Together we are making a profound difference in the world. A world that is weary of fighting this “War against Love”. A world that is learning to lay down weapons of destruction, be they guns or angry words. A world that is ready to pick up paint brushes of Love to create an enlivened vision for a New Earth that thrives on Love.
