In my great homeland of Australia, yesterday was RU OK day. A day where we check in on those we love to see how they are doing. A major focus of this initiative is suicide prevention. I took the time to check in with the greatest love of my life - life itself. I'm sure you won't be surprised by the response. Here's what life had to say...
The judgement of the flawed and imperfect, by the self-righteous, enters our world under the guise of righteousness and virtue. A spotlight shone upon those whose humanity is of an inadequate standard. But the true nature of this light is dark and sinister. A light cloaked in darkness. This is not the work of love. And our world is no better for it.
'Collective reconciliation only takes place when we make the same space in honour of the humanity of others.True reconciliation does not require a debt to be paid. Unconditional love puts no such conditions on anything.That’s what makes it unconditional. Reconciliation requires this type of love, acceptance and forgiveness. It’s a feeling. Not a ledger in the physical experience.'
'We are not, as we have led ourselves to believe, and contemporary personal development and spirituality teachers have taught us, the centre of the universe or powerful beyond anything we could ever imagine.At least this is not individually the case.We are a small part of what is a very beautiful, though fractured and flawed humanity.It is our ability to love and to extend love to any being or situation that is powerful and unlimited.'
Does our world yearn to be one of genuine equality? Or does it prefer to distribute equality and other similar traits selectively? 'On the surface, this piece is about Jack de Belin. But at its heart it is a commentary on humanity and a contemporary society that jumps at any opportunity to destroy a popular or easy-to-destroy target. What is destroyed, of course, is someone’s humanity.'
Religion is like someone putting a fence around God and expecting him to stay inside it while they take credit - and profit - for putting up the fence. How impressive. You put labels and restrictions on God. You imprison him and then claim wealth, power and influence as your reward. Did we ever think God would bow to or stay humbled by the religious and spiritual paths that failed him? And which still claim to speak on his behalf, and by doing so deny his own voice in the process. Not likely. And he hasn’t.
'You will hear capitalism blamed for our world’s struggles. How so? It’s just a thing. It did not put a gun to our heads and demand we abuse our world for economic gain. That was our free will. That was our choice.' We all have the choice to be gentle, or abusive, when it comes to our expression and demands in this lifetime. One person who chose to live with conditional expression so that his life honoured all life as sacred, was Jesus. He was not extraordinary. He was human. He had to be! In order to prove that living a life of unconditional love - which one can only do by putting conditions on their expression so that who they are honours life - was possible.
There is great irony in the fact that in the age of the influencer and in a global climate of outrage at abuse the only influencer we haven’t listened to, or taken seriously, is the most abused and violated identity of all. The only influencer who actually matters. God. Who better to know what life needs, than God. Or life itself, if you prefer.
"We can say we live in unprecedented times. But there's a reason. It's because the extent of our physical, energetic and psychological abuse of life is also unprecedented. That's how things work. If the level of abuse something experiences reaches unprecedented levels, then so too will its suffering."
God - and Life - have been failed by the religious and spiritual paths which claimed guardianship for our world, along with authority for their sacred word. As life cried out in desperation, making it clear a catastrophic breakdown was imminent, they were oblivious, participating wholeheartedly in the marketplace our world had become. The result? They are fired and the only 'way' that was ever going to work for life itself, takes their place. The way of conditional expression. God's contemporary word.
Short video - and text - exploring, 'Why Conditional Expression?' Perhaps a more appropriate question might be, 'how could it be any other way?'
To 'be and trust' is one of the key concepts of conditional expression and essential to our collective 'way'. That's if our way is to honour the energetic health of life. 'Be and Trust' were the first three words, repeated three times, that God spoke to me. Or at least the first three words he spoke, when I was actually clear on who it was, I was communicating with. Read on to see why!
Let me share a simple fact with the world. If the foundation for our lives, is our own lives, then our world will never be at peace. It will continue to suffer.But if the foundation for our lives is life in its entirety - the world and humanity and the earth - then it stands a chance.
That we live with conditional expression - where one places conditions on their expression and demands so the life they live is life-giving to life, rather than harmful - is our contemporary instruction from God and life itself. As such, we are also told that the health of the life we belong to relies on our obeying laws that support that life. Today, the first of four laws - the Law of Alignment and Expression!
So what does life actually need from us? Maybe it’s time we backed off the individual intensity and focused more on giving life its best year yet. After all, it’s the high income world that’s murdering life in the first place. So what can we do to give life the things it needs? Read on to better understand the impact our way of life has on life from life's perspective.
If our world is sick, it is because we make it so. Whenever a human being chooses a course of action and expression that prioritises them, as an individual, over the balance of life itself, life must suffer. Unfortunately for life, it is the default setting of the high income world to place little to no restrictions on the things we do and the lifestyles we create - collectively speaking, of course - all while making declarations of our great love for humanity and the earth on boastful social media posts.
Judgement, boasfulness and our rampant use of energetic tools of manipulation, such as the law of attraction, have been murdering the life we belong to. And those responsible are often people who portray themselves as inspiring and those who believe themselves superior to others. We are all going to be seen for what we really were to life. Not what we thought we were to the world.
Our world has become a 'my abuse of the world is okay, but yours isn't' type of world. And many who are most outraged by certain types of abuse account for some of the most abusive in other ways.
