Distilling our Human Experiences into Soul Wisdom

JosephineWall

As I was falling asleep a few nights ago I recall feeling like I was the LA freeway with a multitude of timelines moving through me, much like all the cramped lanes of traffic with cars jutting from one lane to another. I wasn’t aware of the specifics of these timelines, simply aware that they existed within me. I was sensing the merging of timelines, much as the freeway going through the city eventually merges from the congestion of multiple lanes to only one lane the farther it gets from the city. I knew there was nothing I need do as I slipped into dreamtime.

As I moved through the following days memories of certain periods of my life began resurfacing. This happened often enough that I put aside whatever I was doing and sat down to be fully present with each of these memories as the observer without engaging. Whenever I did this there was a freeze frame, of sorts, and I was able to observe the layers of what I had experienced at that particular time. To my surprise, it was NOT what I thought had happened. What I remembered was only a tiny aspect of the multifaceted event that had taken place.

One of the most important things I’ve learned since my spiritual awakening many years ago is the mind’s propensity to judge and label things before putting them in linear order based on its past experience. Whereas the Soul lives in the present with an expanded nonjudgemental perspective. When I surrender to the Soul, my human self has access to this expanded perspective. Taking it one step further, when I befriend and trust the orchestration of my Soul, the process of living as a Soul in a human body becomes one of ease and grace.

Therefore, as I was experiencing these memories I asked my Soul, “What is the purpose of my remembering so much of my past right now?” I have a very intimate relationship with my Soul and I often get direct answers from my inner voice or via my journaling. Other times these answers surface in dreamtime while free of the constructs of the mind. This time I got the answer in a book I was guided to read.

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.

It became clear to me that as a conscious multidimensional observer I am currently remembering my past in the same way my Soul experiences life. I am being blessed to experience all of these timelines/stories running through me while simultaneously being distilled into their wisdom. I get to choose if I would like to continue each timeline with my new judgment-free perception, or if its purpose is complete and ready to be dissolved.

Some of these timelines which I thought had been resolved occasionally circled back around into my consciousness. That’s because timelines are not as linear as we think. Just like the cars that jut back and forth between lanes on the freeway, there are aspects of ourselves living in multiple timelines that need to unravel from one before they can be released from another. This is THE lifetime in which we are clearing and distilling ALL timelines as we transcend our human mind to expand into our multidimensional Self Knowing. This is a sacred gift from our Soul that we’re not usually conscious of until after our human death.

However, this is a gift that is ever present and happening behind the scenes for all of us AND we have the ability to access and utilize it while still alive in these human bodies. All it takes is surrendering our human mental perspective to that of the Soul’s. Sounds simple, eh? It is. True spiritually is always simple.

It is only the mind that turns spirituality into arduous tasks such as healing wounds, shadow work, affirmations, incantations, etc, etc. . . for fear of losing its self importance. Although our mind may think it’s in control, it is short lived. Perhaps that’s why it fights so hard for self validation. What the mind does not realize is that it’s being offered a promotion, rather than a death threat. Even most of what we call our spiritual practices are being run by the mind. Therefore, we are awakening and communing with our Soul in altered states of dreamtime, meditation, napping, nature and things such as these, until we break free of the constructs of the mind to consciously realize and embody our Divinity.

The Soul is eternal, free of judgment, without any need of validation. When we surrender to our Soul we know we are always on the right path, our own unique path of Enlightenment. Notice I said, “path OF Enlightenment” not “path TO Enlightenment” for enlightenment is not a destination, it is our infinite growth and expansion. According to the Soul we can’t get it wrong because it’s all human experience being distilled into pure wisdom. We are each experiencing life according to our Soul’s journey. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, for each is on their own Soul journey to be honored just as we honor ours.

The past few mornings I’ve awakened with a sweet smile on my face, feeling the innate pleasure my Soul feels as the first rays of dawn glisten across the forest, listening to the harmonies of birdsong, enjoying the fresh morning breeze across my face while still snuggled under my warm duvet. Soul embodiment allows the Soul to feel and experience as the human, and the human has the gift of the Soul’s distilled wisdom which we call Self Knowing. This might be what some call “Seeing through the eyes of the Soul”. For me, it is living heaven on earth, enjoying physicality with the gift of the totality of my Soul’s wisdom distilled from my human experiences which I now realize are all sacred.

The Joy of Death

Art by Jan Burgess

While rooting around looking for something in one of my desk drawers, I came across a folder of accumulated notes. I don’t remember what I was looking for. It was the result of the looking that struck my fancy.

I opened the folder and began shuffling through the bits and pieces of paper. Some were paper clipped together, others were stuck in there haphazardly, without any specific order. The more I read, the more I realized they were notes from my past life.

I say past life because nothing I read pertained to life as I am now living. Most were spiritual notes, affirmations or bits of journaling. There were a few sketchy business plans. And the notes from a teleconference I had taken. This folder held the notes of where I’ve come from, my past life while still living in this physical body.

A huge grin spread across my face with the realization that I am no longer living a life that needs lists, notes, affirmations and business plans. That was my past life. In my current life I am living in the moment. I Am the creator of this life rather than the victim of it. In this life I am no longer a spiritual seeker, for I am aligned with Source. In this life I trust my Inner Guidance without the need to search for opinions from others. In this life I am a Sovereign being making heart choices free of any perceived obligations. In this life I realize energy is in service to me, I am no longer attempting to control it or direct it, I can simply choose it.

I didn’t need to read every piece of paper, for I knew there was nothing of value in this folder anymore. Instead I created a small fire pit with some kindling out in my garden. One by one I fed the bits and pieces from that lifetime into the fire. Once the last spark was gone I covered it with dirt and returned it to the earth. From earth you are born, to earth you return.

I then went back inside and opened my clothes closet. There hung the costumes of a persona that no longer exists. These were all bagged up and carried out to the charity shop. A bathroom drawer with makeup that hasn’t been touched in years all cleared out, thrown into the trash. Last of all I returned to my desk and filled the trash can with old files that belonged to she who has passed on. She who knows who She is without the need for diplomas, certificates, records and validation.

Death can be a sweet thing when we realize it doesn’t really exist. We do not die, we simply transform, evolve and continue to expand our consciousness. How many past lives have I already lived in this one? Too many to count. The difference is that I was never conscious of dying to the old and transforming into the new. This time I Am fully conscious of putting a past life to rest with ease and grace. The best part about this was that none of this was on my “to do” list. I did not angst over clearing out my closet or my desk drawers. When it was time I simply stepped out of one life into another and released the old manifestations thereof. There was no struggle. There was no mourning. It was an act of Joy!

Multi-dimensional Resolution

multi

Years ago my daughter and I were deciding where to meet for breakfast. After offering several choices, she said, “Mom, people don’t like to have so many choices. It confuses them. They like to choose between A or B. That’s enough.” At the time, I thought, “Oh how strange. Why not have lots of choices?”

Looking back on it I realize I’ve always been a multidimensional being, experiencing multiple choices rather than living within the limited constructs of duality’s either/or. I’ve never perceived life choices as right or wrong. I’ve always branched out to consider…. if this isn’t working for me, how about trying something different? From my perspective, there are always more choices.

Somewhere along the line, I realized she’s right. Too many choices often confuse people. The human mind will instantaneously engage each choice in a separate gerbil wheel without the ability to connect them or settle upon one in particular, thus creating a three ring circus within themselves without resolution. Humans are accustomed to living concrete lives with one right answer, one right belief or one right approach. Everything else is considered wrong. But I have to ask, “Right for who?” What’s right for you may not be right for me. That’s when my mind jumps to choice C, perhaps a compromise or something completely out of the box.

Although I have been living multidimensionally to a large degree, I have also been living linearly. I usually consider the multiple choices and put them in a linear sequence. Although that has been working well for me most of my life, something has changed. We are no longer living in the energies of a 3d linear duality. Planet earth has moved into a new space in the universe where the foundational energies have expanded into a quantum field of reality. Linear time/space is no longer being supported in the way it had been.

What’s Different?
Instead of stacking things in a linear sequence, I realize I am the center of my energy field with infinite potentials floating around me. Once I make a choice, all the resonating potentials and supportive energies gravitate toward that particular choice like a magnet. Voila! All is in divine order and I simply need to be present in the here and now to step into it.

Unless . . .
the mind short-circuits it by attempting to make sense of it all. The human mind, with probability as the operative, has never been programed to function efficiently in a quantum field of infinite possibilities rather than a predetermined probability.

When I first became conscious of living in the quantum field, my mind was so confused I lost my ability to make any choices. I was no longer logged into the rational mind, nor was I proficient at “allowing” and “trusting” the gravity of my own innate knowing. Therefore I muddled both processes which left me in no man’s land. During this period of time I have never felt so lost in the drift of life and yet life continued to carry me forward of its own accord.

Finally . . .
by practicing a newly minted perception, I’m able to catch myself and withdraw whenever something’s not working. That brief pause is enough to break my mind free of the old programing, giving it ample space for my innate gravity to draw what it needs to me. Sometimes a pause with a deep breath is enough. Other times I need to divert my attention to something that feeds my soul, like a little sky gazing or a walk in nature, before I return to the original project having given it ample space to reorganize itself. There’s a reason we call this being “spacey”, because our mind goes blank, making space for more of who we are to be present. When I sit gazing into nature, it often feels like there’s another being inside me enjoying the sensuality of living on this planet. This is my multidimensional creator being, present with me in the here and now.

Our whole world is a changin’. . .
The frequency of our planet has expanded to include new bandwidths. We are becoming multi-dimensional humans, no longer living as solo instruments. We’re being introduced to a whole orchestra of percussion, woodwinds, strings, and horns. We are becoming the conductors of infinite choices. At times we may feel unprepared for this shift in consciousness,confused by so many choices or feeling like victims without any choices at all. And yet, at the very core of each of us, there is an innate harmony that brings it all to resolution if we allow it to find it’s own way rather than force our human mental agendas upon it. There is new music in the omniverse and we are the expressions of it.

This, my friends, is what we’ve always called magic or miracles. When in reality, this is the organic way of life throughout the omniverse. We’ve just gotten a little side tracked along our limited path of humanness. As we realign with the core of our divinity, infinite new creative potentials continually appear. The more our consciousness expands the more multi-dimensional resolution, magic and miracles will abound!!!

Initiating the Tribe of Joy-Beams

wendy-andrew-art

 

I’m a WayShower, an Ascension Trailblazer, an Expander of Consciousness, call me what you like, it matters not, I’m not into labels. Who I know myself to be is a very ancient soul who came to this planet on “Mission Gaia” eons ago. I remember traversing the omniverse to arrive with a small group on the “eve of form”, spearheading a very gradual process that took many lifetimes to fully descend into the density of the third dimension.

Mission Gaia was dreamed into being to experience the gift of separation to learn about the creation of form and more fully know ourselves as the Divine who thrives on expansion and the flow of creation. During this process, we forgot who we are, which introduced a certain amount of distress, anguish and adversity.

Over the years many joined us along the way. Eventually we became so embroiled in the underworld of forgetfulness we have had to fight our way back to the light. At first we became Warriors of Light, wielding our swords to fight against that which appears to oppress us. Once our remembrance began to return we graduated to LightWorkers, working hard as healers or for causes to safeguard the planet and improve life for all of humanity. Some have branched off to become LightBearers, those who are consciously increasing the Love and Light for others to follow in their wake. Others have been working behind the scenes blazing trails into the unknown to create a new foundation from which to build upon and expand as the old crumbles away.

A few months ago a message from my Inner Being informed me that as of this September Equinox 2016 “Mission Gaia”, which began eons ago, is coming to a close, all contracts successfully complete.

Success!! Success!!! Success!!!!
Mission Gaia complete! What a celebration that inspired!!

Together with our “teams” of starbeings, ascended masters and angelics, we have raised the frequency of the planet to her original vibration, anchored a new crystalline grid, and transformed our physicality into crystalline LightBodies. Gaia has been anchored into her new trajectory on her way back Home to become a teaching planet for the entire omniverse and the honored “Hearth for the Universal Councils of Peace”. What a delightful Hearth that will be to gather around with all of our Star families sipping on our cosmic elixirs.

With the conclusion of Mission Gaia we are now being given new choices. Some will leave with bells on their toes because they are complete. Some will reincarnate to experience the New Earth as new seedlings. Some will hang around to facilitate the current transition with causes that are near and dear to their hearts. Some will step into a whole new playground of creation with their transformed physicality to wield these new energies like children filled with wonderment brandishing the nifty tool belts we’ve acquired over many lifetimes. The choice is a personal one and all choices are equally honored and valued. What does your soul want to experience? The options are infinite because we’ve died to the old and risen from the ashes as the Phoenix gliding into infinite new potentials.

Whoosh… if we knew then, what we know now would we have still signed up for this under-taking. I don’t know about you but my hand still would have been the first that shot up into the air to volunteer.

No doubt about it ascending has been a bit of a bear to endure, but I have to ask, when did ascension become a disease, riddled with symptoms? When did we become victims to the suffering of ascension? Isn’t that the old mentality? Just like everyone else, my old life has been disintegrated, home, marriage, career, friends, etc. I have experienced my share of pain, discomfort, fatigue and bouts of disorientation that have raised the bar on fear and anguish. And yet, there has always been an element of excitement and gratitude at the core because there is a reason we continue to endure.

As we’ve already learned during the dark ages, suffering can become a self-perpetuating cycle. Ascension is not self-perpetuating, it is expansion. In 3d linear time, things happen in a prescribed sequence. Now that we’ve gone beyond 3d, we’re living in a quantum world where everything is happening simultaneously. What that means for us is that alongside our aches and pains, self-love, compassion, peace and joy are equally present for us to draw upon. We get to choose. And the choices are infinite!!!

So. . . here we are Mission Gaia complete, sashaying around in our new LightBodies with new choices presenting themselves. What now?

When I sat down with my Soul team and asked what my new mission would be I was given one word 💕✨💕 JOY!! 💕✨💕

No instructions, no destination, no to do list, no goals. One simple word, JOY! I have already chosen to hang around to play with the unseen beings together with the seen, while maintaining a physical body. This has always been my dream and I’m already living it. Since Gaia has ascended and I’m hanging out with her, does that mean I’m an ascended master? I’ve no idea what an ascended master is supposed to look like or how to act. I’m told that’s exactly as it should be. A master creates in the moment. For me, that means creating with Joy because Joy is the hallmark for the New Earth.

Thus, I am fully committed to “Mission JOY” and the newly initiated “Tribe of JoyBeams”. If you are so inclined, I invite you to join the Tribe and accept Gaia’s invitation to live a life of JOY in whatever way you choose to do so to create anew and do it with JOY. Imagine a whole Tribe of JoyBeamers uplifting the world 💕✨💕

Humanity’s Gift to the Universe

05615826ff64e5719c30c181514e04a52

This morning I awoke in a new time/space reality. I could feel it before I opened my eyes. For a while I lingered here, feeling into it, savoring it, least it disappear once I set my feet on the ground. Everything feels much clearer with a silky quality to it. The rubble of thoughts are held at bay, or have they disappeared altogether. Perhaps some of both. In their place is a sweet contentment.

When I open my eyes the old world feels dense in comparison, not as thick and heavy as the discrepancy between dreamtime and awake time as I used to feel. Simply more dense than where I am now. The tonal qualities I’m hearing are very different than I’m accustomed. It’s not unusual for me to hear tones. However, at the moment it sounds like a retuning, much like when I retune my harp strings, until each note settles into its new vibration.

When I look around the room my eyes, and consciousness, are acting much like a camera. They telephoto in on something, such as a bouquet of flowers and see all the layers and components of it as long as I’m focused on it. I see/feel the vibration/life of each flower, the color, scent, vibrancy, its song, potentials of its growth, how it unfolded (the past/present in the now). I feel the interaction and appreciation of one flower in the bouquet to another. When I withdraw my attention from it, I can tell I’ve changed what I was focused upon simply by my having given it my attention. In this case it was my appreciation and wonderment. As an experiment I changed my feelings to ho-hum and it diminished, still there but not as palpable.

Then I shifted my attention to the nature outside my window. I’m able to observe the tree’s reaction to the first rays of the golden sun. I’m experiencing how the elementals interact, how they find a new balance with each other moment by moment. No wonder I always find myself staring out into nature. Look at what I’ve been comprehending without even know it. I’ve always known nature has much to teach us, but I did not realize the teaching was this subtle. The longer I observe the more my heart is opening. I can feel the effect we (nature and I) have on each other. It is not just my observation that changes the energy, I am also being changed. This is done simply by my conscious observation of it. I can actually feel the vibration changing. This brings tears to my eyes. This feels like our Home vibration with an expanded consciousness/understanding we never had available to us until now.

It’s important to be conscious of where I place my attention or this could become overwhelming. This is taking a unique quality of concentration at the moment to hone this skill. I’m told the more I practice this and the more conscious I am with it, the more quickly this will become my norm. This is a marvelous manifestation refinement simply because we can see it in action and make adjustments in the moment.

I find this interesting because in 3d we originally slowed the vibration down so we could understand how things manifest. Now that we’ve done that, as everything speeds back up we’re able to realize what we’re experiencing with new awareness. When the vibration was slow our consciousness was so slow we were not able to realize it. It was our experience of it in conjunction with our expanded consciousness that has now given us that ability. An ability we could not have had if we had not lived in the density. I have a new appreciation for 3d/density. And I can see how easily we got stuck in it. I also see how the planet/humanity is being effected by the floods of photons we’re experiencing right now as our solar system is traveling through new areas of the universe, without which I don’t think we would have been capable of awakening. It is this Light and the amplification of Love by humans like you and I that has made this possible. How amazing as I sit here watching it AND changing it by my simple awareness of it. I have tears flowing in appreciation with intense waves of gratitude flowing simultaneously between me and the universe. This is Bliss.

I now understand that if I do nothing more that stare out into the forest with nothing more than appreciation for what is, no matter what that might be, I am changing the world, changing the universe. God created us in his/her image to know itself. Yes indeedy !!!

This is the Self realization we’ve all been seeking, that psychology nor science will never attain through the mind. It is the purity of nature and our ability to be fully human that holds all the cards in this game called Life. It is our willingness to go deep and expand simultaneously that expands consciousness.

We are the Master Creators of this Universe! And we’re doing it in all humbleness from our heart’s desire to become more, experience more and know more of ourselves in each present moment, just as God created us as him/her self. Manipulation and control has no place in the New Earth. They were 3d concepts we utilized as learning tools which we can now put to rest.

We have graduated to a new way of BEing with Life. We are creating anew. Our expanded consciousness is creating from the heart with the pulse of Love. We have far exceeded our expectations when we first set out on this journey eons ago. Look how far we’ve come! And look where we stand now as Master Creators embarking upon a New Age of infinite Well-Being, prepared to thrive in ways we never thought possible, ready to create beyond our wildest dreams.

No wonder humanity is being held in rapture by beings from all over the Universe!! Don’t take your humanity for granted it is the most Divine Gift ever created. YOU are that Gift!

Letting go of “Letting go”

07dbbb01795c912e5caddaff4ff7e9908

My facebook newsfeed is rampant with posts advising us to go into the mysterious darkness and “let go” of all those and shadows that have been lurking in our subconscious.

This emphasis on “letting go” has been going on for a long time now, as we’re letting go of the old and opening to the new. Any transition requires this of us, whether it be a transition from one home to another, one relationship to another, one job to another, or one state of consciousness to another. This is happening personally and collectively. Humanity is in the midst of one of the biggest transitions of all time as is demonstrated by the collapse of the old establishment. Thus there is a lot to let go of.

However I feel like we’re caught in a bit of a stutter here… let go… let go… let go… let go…. let go. . . . . .

Based on what I’ve been seeing in my facebook newsfeed there is so much emphasis on digging deeply into the darkness of our emotional wounds and shadow selves that it feels like we were getting stuck in a cycle of forever looking for what’s wrong with us rather than seeing ourselves as Divinely perfect, thus foregoing the Joy of living in the here and now.

I am not suggesting that we don’t let go of things, for that is the natural flow of life in order to grow and expand. It is important to release the emotional baggage which holds us back, but continually focusing on the psychological games of the mind only stagnates our lives. There was a time when the vibration of this planet was thick and dense. It took a lot of work to dive deeply into our unconsciousness to heal our old wounds and confront our shadow selves.

As the vibration of the planet rises, our unconsciousness is naturally rising to the surface without the need to go digging so deeply. Thankfully, this has become a much more organic process. What’s required of us now is to disengage from all the distractions, remain fully conscious, and allow these old energies to move up and out without engaging. I don’t live my life constantly digging into my past looking for things to heal or let go of, as so many spiritual teachings are suggesting. Instead I flow with ease and grace, allowing everything to naturally release in the moment as it makes itself known. In this way energy is in constant creative flow.

Birthing is an inside job. And thus it is for all Master Creators. Our desires arise from within and are nurtured within the mysterious darkness of the womb drawing everything it needs to manifest. The Black Madonna is the sacred womb of all creation, the darkness from which all things are born, simultaneously filled with Love and Light illuminating our hidden desires and releasing that which no longer serves us.

Dear Beloveds, go within, allow your secret desires to become illuminated via the Light of the Black Madonna. Surrender to her fertile womb of creation. Let go of the arduous work of “letting go” and allow it to resolve organically. See what happens when you refocus your attention to the seeds of desire that are sprouting within you rather than the arduous work of continuing to dig into that which has now become compost. Trust the process to allow your boldest dreams and desires to fully manifest with ease and grace.

WE are Master Creators. We are here to birth the new and we can’t do that when all of our focus is on letting go of the past. Isn’t it time to look forward, let go of “letting go”, transcend the old, rise above and finally, finally, finally move beyond it to birth something new!!!

Facts are Facts, Unless They’re Not

01c2f920d61482ab44d58e2eb4d436312

What are facts?
And whose facts are they?
What we consider to be facts are simply someone else’s published opinion or assessment. In these days of the internet that’s become a squirrelly proposition because anyone can write words on a page and publish them. A snippet of the whole can be take it out of context and called a fact. And since the advent of photoshop, even photos aren’t confirmation of the truth anymore.

So where do we find the truth?
No matter how many facts you accumulate, there is no truth to be found in facts because there will always be one more fact to be considered. That’s the way of a universe that’s in constant expansion. Today’s facts will always be superseded by tomorrow’s revelations. It used to be a fact that the world was flat. Facts are facts, until there’re not. So in reality, there is only one truth. That is your own Inner Truth.

How do you know what’s true?
How can you trust your Inner Truth?

By reflecting on how you feel. Unless you’re at peace about something, it’s not in alignment with Who You Are. That’s your unfailing truth meter. If you’re riled up about something it’s because you’re barking up the wrong tree, usually someone else’s tree. And if you’re attacking someone else’s opinion, attempting to convince them you are right, it’s your own perception of rightness you are attempting to defend.

I’m all for open discussions. Discussions that are rooted in listening rather than defending. When we listen with an open heart, we are open to hearing. When we’re busy defending, armed with an arsenal of facts, all of our attention is on what we need to say next, rather than absorbing or considering what another has to say. Therefore, neither party is able to hear anything and it becomes in internal self centered dialogue in the gerbil wheel of the mind.

I have to ask, what are we so afraid of that we need to have everyone agree with us and think the way we do? Are we so disconnected and untrustworthy of ourselves that we’re searching for acknowledgement from others?

It doesn’t matter how many others acknowledge and agree with you. Until you acknowledge Who You Are, you will never be at peace, always looking for others to acknowledge you. When in reality, you are the only one that can acknowledge yourself.

Thus, being at peace with your Self provides you with the ability to listen with an open mind, engaging when it’s appropriate or walking away when it’s not. Your Inner Truth never needs defending because it’s in alignment with Who You Are and you’re able to honor the Inner Truth of others allowing you to connect heart to heart.

These are all questions I asked of myself when I was blindsided by several people this last week during the disruptive energies of these two eclipses. Each time I choose to walk away. Each time my mind tried to argue that I was being a coward. Each time my heart was at peace because I did not choose to argue. Why would I do anything to disrupt my internal peace?

Peace is something everyone hungers for. We’re all tired of war and we desire peace. But peace is not an outside battle. It’s an inside battle of the mind. Therein lies the oxymoron. It’s time to lay down the (s)words of the mind and listen to and with the heart? Therein lies the peace that passeth understanding. It has taken many years of practice to find this peace within myself, knowing when to speak up and when to walk away.

So I thank those who blindsided me this past week. They facilitated these questions in my quest for truth, in my quest for peace. What I’ve come to realize is….. Facts are facts, unless they’re not.

The song “The Gambler” by Kenny Rodgers comes to mind. “You gotta know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run.” As one who is willing to gamble with the fullness of life, the way I know how to respond is when my heart is at peace. That’s a fact!!!
