To me, this has got to be, by far, the Best writing in this whole thread. I keep re-reading and re-reading, and each time, come away with new insight. So, when Deb and I talked tonight, we had a great discussion about this latest post. As so often happens between us, when one of us shares an insight, it sparks another deeper insight in the other! And so, levels of meaning keep expanding and expanding. And we both want to share them with you…so here goes…

In the scope of multiple occurrences
“scope of multiple occurrences” - we perceive this on 3 different levels…
1-the planetary alignment 12/21/12
2-the events on our planet from wars to weather to corruption to compassion etc
3-our inner work to release what no longer serves our highest good
Within the Universe at this point
With many energies touching one another
all of these energies touching each of us in some way
There are semblances of types that are
“semblances of types” – a form or appearance that is deliberately misleading
ah, how often have we heard “nothing is as it appears” !

occurring.....

This issue seems not to come too often
We may be incorrect on this, but is the alignment every 26,000 years?
Yep, not too often! LOL
In this rotation of energies
Rotation of the energies – all the heavenly bodies spiraling thru the Cosmos
So, something of great import
Is purposed to occur

shortly.....
The Mayan predicted alignment for 2012?

There is likened to be a gathering of energies
That will put forth entities that encompass
“entities” – possible UFO disclosure?
A method that has gone before but will in the
‘method that has gone before” – much coming to light now about our
true origins (star) and previous visitations in ancient advanced civilizations
who left signs of their presence around the planet (pyramids, hieroglyphics,
writings, symbols, etc), so, visitation will be the same but not the same
Near future show itself under warded yet
“under warded” – meaning under protection, shielded from danger or harm

unfettered.....
(yet "unfettered", free to accomplish its purpose)
makes perfect sense in the scope of the dynamics occuring
in the bigger picture (2012 Ascension concepts)

It will come at a time of expecting with a show
many of us have a preconceived expectation of what will occur
Of the unexpected in a maze of events
That have to be noted, yes, but give less
Than what has been expected

unwarranted....
"unwarranted" (unexplainable) maze of events

And then as suddenly as all are disappointed
disappointing (at first),
Then comes a second breath that will take
2nd breath – can be either us going within (meditation), or another occurence
Forward that which has been disposed
that will take forward– magically giving birth to
that which has been “disposed” – two meanings here, both can
be appropriate depending on where we are at in awareness:
1-receptive and/or prepared
2-disregard or throw away
And now the presence owns itself with no definition
(presence owns itself) can be either the individual “we” take ownership without limits (no definition), or again another occurence

Deafening quiet....

With the spark of creation of the moment comes
An appealing warmth that chooses to embrace
The points of heaven that have been left abandoned
(points of heaven abandoned) - what we have 'forgotten'
And so, now there comes a new expression of that
creating a new expression of our Divine Selves in the Cosmos
here on Earth...the physical Light Being

Which owns itself in the Cosmos....

It is time to listen to this new voice that is heralded
Pinioned between points of residence and long occurenced
“pinioned” – bound
“between points of residence” – not only our current physical focus, but
our multi-dimensional selves
“long occuranced” - (all time as One)
Of which has never before been presented
A New Awakening coming from the distance

To embrace ITSELF...
(recognizing and acknowledging the I AM That I AM) 2012’s Ascension within!

Love, Deb


Am sure buzzed with this writing...can you tell? hahaha

Journey WITHIN The All That Is (Part 1)
by Peg 6-23-04

All appears silent …

then Suddenly – Awareness!! …

that ----- I AM !

I Am Aware of My Beingness

I sense a floatingness –
----A suspension within Allness

I open my proverbial “eyes”
----Smiling in discovery, the vastness within Me – that lies

A surreal feeling, almost dreamy

I breathe - in and out - gentle and slow,
I pulsate to the rhythm of the flow…

----In sync with the grand symphony –
----The sounds of silence – music of a different kind, to me

So much - sooo much - potential within this playground
----In joy, I burst myself out, by intense directive of thought
----And through a myriad of “ME’s” – I found
----The power and purpose – long sought

The expansive omnipotence of what Creation is

And have come to know – I AM … All That Is !


***

Journey WITHIN The All That Is (Part 2)
by Peg 7-19-11

(I had a dream a couple of weeks ago, and though I can’t recall the specific details of it, I awoke with the thought, or should I say question, what if we all represent a ‘memory’ in the Mind of “God” or All That Is? That root connection of One, uniquely expressed by the many, has always fascinated me. I have long felt that Source Creator experiences Itself through our individual experiences, and learns and grows along with us.)

Breathing in – deep and full
Breathing out – gentle and slow

Floating softly within the rhythmic wave of My Being
Moving with the graceful pattern of the Universal Symphony

I relax into the Concurrent memories of the myriads of “Me”
---Patiently awaiting the awakening of each
---To the sentient awareness that “we” are more than what appears to be

Existing far beyond just single physical points of expressions
Simultaneously playing in a vast array of realities, paradigms, and dimensions

For just a moment, My senses focus on the 3D world
And I marvel at how its theme of polarity makes for such perfect and divine partners

With each choice, a fresh canvas to create
---Each painting - a living work of art - continuously changing
---Against a backdrop of light and dark - in mirrored silhouette

A challenging playground, fueled by the imagination of master thinkers
---Whose thoughts and ideas have the potential to summon
---The best - or not - each chooses to be

Yet its ultimate purpose, to grow and evolve, no matter the choice
---Calls us to the ballroom floor…

And so, between the Light and Dark of the floodlights…

I gently smile and say…
Shall we dance?


Love...Peg

Occuring shortly, unfettered, unwarranted - deafening quiet - "That" which owns itself in the Cosmos to embrace ITSELF.

Suddenly, "THAT" becomes the definitive and the determiner. Hmmm, anybody have any thoughts of THAT?

When Venus crosses the Sun
And interjects her energies into
The Heart of the Solar King
It is a time for a whole new
Awakening of the presence

Within...

For so long within this realm
A patriarchal principle has reined
And given the results of that reining
Now a new energy has been set forth
In an attempt to change that force to

Reception...

As the Venus crosses the face of the Sun
She wipes away all that was begun
And inserts a new way of being
That allows for the freeing
Of limitations that have deterred

New Visions...

New ways of being, unlimited
No longer are there any restraints
All is become to the fullness
Of the majesty of the being
Of One assisting Itself

To Emerge...

And in that, hands reach out
To assist one another across the land
And each one divining for themselves
Through the approach to another
In assistance in a way that is needed

In Giving...

As has been proclaimed before
And now repeated here again
The only thing we can take with us
Is what we have given
That is the substance

Within....

Love, Deb

What wonderful writing. It seems to me to be about the sacred feminine that is now coming into the world, the gentle guiding hand, the principle of suggestion instead of coercion. Part of the beautiful writing of our beautiful new world....
Love, C.

debabbott 06-12-2012 09:17 PM

Oh WOW, C., I witnessed this in motion today at my son's nursing/rehab facility. I came in and my son was sitting on the patio with others and I joined them. Now, one has to consider that among the "group" present, there were totally cognitive individuals as well as those who are experiencing what is traditionally called dimentia states. So, as we all were sitting there sharing, it was like we encompassed all who were there without negating anyone's current experience of the moment. As I suggested to Sean, there are some there who are living in their own dimension, which is just as real to them as our dimension is real to us. So, there tends to be a respect in that regard. What may be delusional to us, is another's current experience. So, that is what all of us at the table were respecting without any discussion. It was like a given. We respect this man's space in the way that he chooses to express whether it seems delusional to us or not. For him, it is his dimensional expression of the moment. WOW, and there never was a word said among us all, we all just did it automatically. Isn't that amazing?
Whew....

And you know what he ended up saying? He said, "Sean, I am so proud of you how you have come through this without any complaining at all, you just smile and carry on like nothing ever happened."

And of course, I observe all of this beautiful tender amongst these individuals who have been drawn together in this place and I am continually amazed at the caring that goes on amongst them and Sean and the little bit that I contribute. It is always truly beautiful, to say the least.

My son gave me the best compliment today as I sat and talked with the all of them on the patio. He said:

I saw your old spark again today, haven't had a chance to see you in a round table discuss in quite a while. You make everyone laugh
and you set the tone for conversation. They got a kick out of you today, I did too.

That made me feel so good. Anyway, I guess I'm done spouting. We are doing good here, thanks to all of you and your continued prayers and intentions.

Love you, Deb

I now have tangled quotes
Sitting beneath my tongue
Harboring there, for a chance
To express that which so deeply
Furnishes me with a passion to be.

And now, I so listlessly present
Yet another portion of myself
That seems to be in need to
Venture forth in a means of timeliness.
Savoring every moment, holding still.

I shake my head in an attempt
To draw myself into the margin
Of gathering of the thoughts that
Wish to present themselves
On this day of rendering.

Shaking my head still, I step up to the plate
And center myself in a way for presentation
That will ultimately give note to the degree
Of matter/manner that wishes to be expressed
So, here I am exposed expressing....

There are many continuities that are pressing forward
At this time, many coming forward to say their peace
And many others, listening and wondering from whence
They stand and where forward they should come.
Now is the time of reckoning for all it seems.

Choices, choices, now is the time for choices to be made
And for each to realize the consequences of each choice
That is made. Yes, a time of reckoning, surrender and
A deliverance of what the soul has made to be complete
Within that which is to be offered for the sustenance.

As one gives, so is one given and obtained and received
So is all comprehended, acknowledged and accepted
In the conception of the idea of one created for the benefit
Of all experiencing this moment with an open mind of conception
And fruition coming to be. No longer statutes addressed or expected.
Only true virtue of the moment received.

Now, what do we derive from this movement?
Ah, it is all a shaking away from that which no longer serves us
And a deliverance it seems to carry on in the way that feels
Total abundance wrapping itself around in accordance
With that which was equated to the intention set forth.

And now here we sit in abundance....

Love, Deb

OneLight 06-13-2012 08:03 AM

It is amazing, isn’t it, to realize and experience that as we become more connected within ourselves, we can witness not only the affect of our choices for us, but their effect on others around us. The connection between us all, vibrationally, is profound…and as we continue to recognize this, our intentional choices for us provide us an opportunity to serve all in some way. More and more at this time, whatever we consciously choose for ourselves, rapidly teaches us something. The choice is, do we want to learn in a loving joyous way, or a harsh and difficult way. As you say, there are consequences to all we choose, both for us and those around us. Sounds crazy, but there it is!

I like your phrase “tangled quotes sitting beneath your tongue”. It really does feel like that sometimes…”knowing” what you want to say, and wanting to find the pertinent words in how to say it!

Another excellent rendering….thanks….

Love...Peg

Have you ever had an experience where you walked into a situation
and someone started feeding you information that you had no idea
what was going on? But by the info you just heard you surmised
a situation that you later learned did not exist? Anyway, my point
is, don't let anyone catch you offguard and overload you with data
that cannot possibly process towards a beneficial outcome. Therefore,
after receiving more info from another source, I had to backstep
and withdraw my participation.

In other words, slow down, (I am speaking to myself here), slow other people down and get all the facts first before responding and then one can always say, "I'll have to think about that."
Because, now, I have to go back and say, "I am so sorry but I misunderstood and I cannot participate." Which is alright too. The above
just banishes a step. ahahahha!!!

I think I truly got the full impact of this these
last two days. After Sean's tip over in his
wheelchair yesterday and banging his head,
OneLight and I shared in the reading of Sandra
Helton's astrology for this week. What that said
to me was be like a little fly on the wall and don't
make any waves because people are going to be
out of kilter today. And so they were. When I
went to Sean's today, the staff was very tense
and frustrated. I told Sean what I had read and
he was in agreement so we both were extra caring
for his caretakers today so avoided any problems
in that area for us.

But yes, I too was very "feeling" yesterday when
Sean took a tumble. I thought, "OMG, after every-
thing that has happened now he has busted his head
on the concrete. Is he okay?" Thank goodness he was.
That boy has got a hard hard head, thank goodness.
Anyway, this just lent to me exactly what it says, "Chaos
around, renders my feelings."

So, thankful that we got through yet another situation
without further harm. Lots of feelings yes, because, I set
down some wheelchair motoring rules for Sean after that
little happenstance and he is more than willing to follow them.

Thanking The Big Elephant and Boglivia always for their
words of wisdom.

Love, Deb

by Deb Abbott

When situations seemed to be stretched
So as to appear beyond repair, look farther
Into that which defines the moment of despair.
And feel the next feeling that is apparent to be felt.

You see, within every circumstance, there is always
An option. One can take on the whole of the thing
Presented or one can divert their attention to something
More beneficial. It is always a personal choice to destine.

So, before one gets so totally sunk into what seems to be
The apparentness of the moment, the suggestion would be
Is to look for the alternative feeling that is being presented.
In each moment, there is always another choice.

So, in being aware of another choice, one then sets upon
Defining in a whole new way that which one has just so called
Experienced. Then in doing so, the whole experience then
So Changes form that it can not be matched with that before.

Therefore, in each moment, we are re-defining our definitions
Of our experiences. We are no longer prisoners of our experiences
But more so creators of new experiences to counteract
That which we do not reside within.

Now, we become the creators of our moment of existance
In a way that holds the light of oneself within
While shedding that light out to others in the vicinity
And then with a simple smile, we are able to hold our own.

And in holding our own, then we are able to share more of
Ourselves with those who are in union with our energies.
Perceptions open up to astounding revelations
Awareness reveals its own.

Holding hands with the knowing comes frequency exchange
And therefore, the movement forward of that which has
Designed itself to be read in this time
A nomar of knowing revealed, so let it be.

Love, Deb

OneLight 07-30-2012 08:54 PM

How subtle the confirmation that in all circumstances we have the power and opportunity to go beyond it if we choose to do so. To have the courage to step into the space of the unknown, to light a match so to speak and see what may be revealed. I don’t know what a “nomar” is, but for me, I substitute the word “cache”, which loosely means ‘a hidden storage space’; in other words to me, that fount of knowledge within each of us, if we just seek it out.

Very beautifully presented. Thank you.

Love...Peg

debabbott 08-02-2012 06:56 PM

Check this out...
 
As always, there is a strong possibility that I made a typo error. Check this out and see that you think. Is this what "nomar" means?


Noema (plural: noemata ) is Greek for the meaning of something. It is the mental equivalent of a schema or schematic of something. It is the "representation" of an experience of a meaning based system through its own self-referential process. It could also be considered as the projection of one's own experience onto oneself.

Noema is employed in phenomenology to refer to the terminus of an intention as given for consciousness. The mind breaks down external experiences into what we know as external reality. Noesis is the "thinking" process in such a manner that detects the meaning of the object itself ( noema ). It is the intentional thinking act which is directed upon the noema . In contrast to noesis (ability to sense or know something immediately), a noema is the object itself of perception or thought.

Something noetic has to do with something involving intellectual activity (from the Greek nous, "mind"). One can speak of the noetic faculty as the "intellect proper." Another Greek word for mind is novhma (noema), which translates as mental thought or perception: that which thinks of an idea.

There is a noema corresponding to every act of memory, expectation, and representation. Noema is in the OED, which has shown its use for more than three centuries. It first was used in English in the field of rhetoric to denote "a figure of speech whereby something stated obscurely is nevertheless intended to be understood or worked out." In other words, a noema in rhetoric is obscure speech or speech that only yields meaning upon detailed reflection.

Peacham's 1577 Garden of Eloquence used it this way,

I love it.

The faires are abounding, making comfort
For what was once difficult to consider
Now, those who have been abase
Are rising like the Phoenix.

And those who have been hard harming
Are now running to the hills to getaway
From that which follows their negative ways
Watching that flee is most rewarding.

Much is being brought to the surface
To be cleansed and renewed
And so it is, in this time, that many will come
And many will go, and many will remain.

But only those who know within themselves
That they are sustainable, will they proceed
Into a much greater essence of becoming
Beyond what one has already known.

So, it is that while one persists, another desists
There will be another that will simply move forward
In motion to connect with that which is being presented
Without discord or negativity but simply with accord.

A simple flowing motion, designed without effort
Combining the mental, physical, spiritual energy
That encompasses us all to simply flow with the meaning
Of all life and to assist in the upgrade of humanity.

It then becomes a floating movement of energy that
Enwraps all that are conscious to receive and are ready
To further define themselves in the All That Is
In a way that particularizes each within the experience

OF THE ALL THAT IS....

The Next Moment of Understanding
 
The Big Elephant and Boglivia
08-20-2012
by Deb Abbott

In the midst of chaos
One can find their own
And remain unfettered
It is a simple act of nature
To look within and remain silent.

And then allowing the balancing
Of Silence to bring us to the surface
Of a commaradrie to focus us further
Within the dynamics of the soul's participation
In life's extremities and underlying causes.

And then, suddenly, everything combobulates
Into a union of cohesive gel that brings
Everything together in a union
Not found thus far before
But now present, resides within the bearer.

Suddenly, it seems that words are no longer
Representing that which is being presented.
And it is very difficult to understand all of the
Solutions presented without regard to direction.
Suddenly direction becomes of and in itself.

It is like a spinning spiral out of control
Yet holding on to its own
And ultimately falling back into the placement
Of it's being within the scheme of things.
But, for the moment outbound.

So it is with all that is going on.
There are many unexplainable circumstances
And events that we will have to percieve
In different ways of perception
Now is the time for all to open our minds.

If ever there was a flow, now is the beginning
Of one that astounds so many and yet keeps flowing.
Stand in the flow, and allow it to swallow you up
And let it know that you know exactly what you are doing
And then go with it and bridle it in to your own understanding.

Having done so, then take a deep breath
And allow for all that you know to own you
As you own it yourself in the quiet moments of your mind.
Listen not to what others may say
But listen closely to the tenticles of your hearts sayings.

It is a new time of understanding....

When choosing to dwell within the
Expression of love, there is no discord
No resistance, there simply is the mellow
Tenderness of accord.

Sweetness fills the air with another coming to presence
"Hello, Myele, we are so glad you have come to share with us."
Your presence enwraps us all with a particular mellowness
While lifted with a sense of suspense and intrigue
In a way that seems to establish an accord
Than runs through us all.

There is a tingle in the air, an excitement that lingers on
While the refreshing scent of being permeates this abode
There are whispers in the air of something amazing come to be
As well as venaculars unattended to explode in surprise
On certain levels of energy equations that have been disbursed.
And all the while visions awaiting.

In the meantime, all circling in accord, holding the space.
Continuing the energies that are swirling in an upward rise
In the Vortex of Occurance in this moment
Lifting all energies to the level of understanding and awareness
That we are all combining to get to "The One".
Then, realizing that we are all "The One".

As we continue along the inference of "The Spiral"
So do the energies enwrap us to ever exhange
And continue, in the moment, with one Accord...
Listen now, to the depths of the heart's knowing
And rise to the moment of reckoning....

This is it...we are here....

I was sauntering upon the plain
When an impression came over me
I raised my head and listened
There was a soft voice that said,
"Look around you, feel the energies,
Walk amongst those that surround you
And listen. Let your heart discern from
Whence these others come."

It was then that I realized that I only
Had a portion of experience in my own
Existance and that I certainly needed to
Open my heart and ears and eyes to
The others that surrounded me in my
Day to day experience of this life and
The way that we all throw ourselves
Through it without much thought or
Consideration.

I realized, it was time that I gave some
Consideration to how I am choosing to
Live my life and how I am allowing myself
To Perceive of those around me. It was
Then that a Big Red Flag said, "NO MORE
JUDGEMENT." It was like I suddenly woke up.
And I started to "Listen" without judgement.
I started to "Feel" without judgement.

It was then that I truly heard.
And in the hearing, the voice that was yearning
To be heard, was "ME".............

More wisdom from the bottomless fountain of the BE :)
I so love it.

I observe more and more (like the Neil Diamond song) many
are and have been opening up their "Heart Lights" and "seeing"
beyond what is physical ... recognizing that each path will
eventually lead to the same place.

It is often said that we are mirrors reflecting back to each other
what we need to recognize in ourselves. Isn't it interesting that
when we judge another, it blinds us; yet, if we listen and feel
without judgment, it magically assists us in discerning old thought
patterns that no longer serve us.

I appreciate each thought provoking piece that has been written,
especially lately. They are really getting to the "core" if you
know what I mean.

I was sauntering upon the plain
When an impression came over me
I raised my head and listened
There was a soft voice that said,
"Look around you, feel the energies,
Walk amongst those that surround you
And listen. Let your heart discern from
Whence these others come."

It was then that I realized that I only
Had a portion of experience in my own
Existance and that I certainly needed to
Open my heart and ears and eyes to
The others that surrounded me in my
Day to day experience of this life and
The way that we all throw ourselves
Through it without much thought or
Consideration.

I realized, it was time that I gave some
Consideration to how I am choosing to
Live my life and how I am allowing myself
To Perceive of those around me. It was
Then that a Big Red Flag said, "NO MORE
JUDGEMENT." It was like I suddenly woke up.
And I started to "Listen" without judgement.
I started to "Feel" without judgement.

It was then that I truly heard.
And in the hearing, the voice that was yearning
To be heard, was "ME".............

Love, Deb

and the thousand other MEs. Ha!
Love ya Deb.
Sweet dreams to All tonight!

The Big Elephant lifted her head and turned to listen.
What she heard was a tender voice that presented
Itself in the form of an echo that reverberated the land.
The Big Elephant listened, listened, listened.

It is a time of listening, being totally open to listen
To that which is being presented without pause
Over and over again the stimulus comes
And we are once again presented with this cause.

The Big Elephant then planted the crown of her head
Against the root of the Tree of the Baobab and nudged
The one into being so as to be in union with the energies
That the Baobab provided. There sprang forth a mist.

And in this mist came forth a pulsing energy that presented
A mature knowing of significance to obtain therein what is given
A short but sweet significance is given to stand and hold that
Which is obtained within its ownself and spread forth.

Therein, in this moment was presented a total inhaling of the breath
Of a new idea of the way of being, breathing deeper, the stance remains
And then the fog clears and the ones can see that all along
They were standing exactly where they needed to be.

Love, Deb

Mother Baobab
 
1 Attachment(s)
The BigTree – Part 8
3nov12 by Peg

Mother Baobab was enjoying her day
feeling the warmth of the nourishing Sun
and appreciating the balance offered
by the cooling breezes of the Air
as it gently swirled through her leaves

She marveled at the simplicity of this moment
as she relaxed into the joy of just Being
who she is, as she is

And in this state of wonderment
she thought of her friend, The Big Elephant
whom she hasn't seen in quite a while
Even though Mother Baobab thought of her friend daily
she missed her friend's companionship

With keen understanding, the Air sensed Mother Baobab's thoughts
and with a smile, the Messenger Air carried these thought forms
over the land, bringing them to every distant corner
while covering all in between…

It seemed like no time had passed at all
as Mother Baobab felt the familiar vibration upon the ground
and smiled in excitement to see her friend, The Big Elephant
ambling toward her down the path, trumpeting her hello

How glorious it felt when The Big Elephant
wrapped her trunk around her in a big hug
No better greeting is more welcomed than that!
With the help of the wind, Mother Baobab
dipped her leafy branches down and
softly patted The Big Elephant's back in a return hug

The two friends spent a while catching up
on each other's experiences since their last visit
and then the two shared their latest knowings
happily discovering that each, in their own way,
continue to expand their awareness, perfectly in sync

"Isn't it a wonder" said Mother Baobab
"that no matter what we are going through in the present,
if we take a moment to just breathe and connect with our Center,
the turbulent storms around us seem to dissipate,
opening a path that assists us in unimaginable ways."

"Yes" said The Big Elephant,
throughout it all, I've learned to appreciate
the Teacher in every situation."

The two friends smiled at each other,
acknowledging that whatever manifests and comes forth
within the rhythms of life, all have purpose
which, as The Big Elephant said, gifts us
with exactly where we need to be.

Love...Peg

The Big Elephant was coarsing through Nature
When the Mother asked,
"Hey, have you noticed how much attention
that I am now getting?
Don't you think it is about time that the populace
lent me their ear?

Having been so lenient for so many many years,
Now, I find it necessary to demand, not only attention
But appropriate response."
The Big Elephant lifted her head in recognition and accord.
She knew The Mother Nature spoke of that which needs be.
It was then that she asked, "How may I assist?"

The Mother Nature smiled and the seas rocked in deliverance
As the moon crested to her assent. She then responded.
"You may assist by acknowledging and respecting every
living thing. Ahhh, you may ask, "What is not living?"
The answer therein lies within the question,
For within all, there is life.

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant was considering self-determination
And what all that involved.
When she discovered that the premise was based on
How one thought about themselves
And how secure one was with themself.

In this moment of thought, The Big Elephant lent herself
to encompass the fragility of her personage and of the
Manner in which she considered of how others perceived
Of herself and it was then that she came to an understanding.

The Big Elephant then felt that she had walked inbetween
Worlds of perceptions in the knowing that no one can know
Another as they know themselves. So goes then, that one
Cannot attempt to portray themselves for another but their own.

One must stand in their own knowing for themselves
Void of what another may think
In the doing so, the soul of the one presented
Is gracefully addressed within itself.

It is all inside that needs to be addressed.

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant found herself pondering.
Pondering just exactly what was the most
Important thing to her in this moment.
That didn't take long, it was her own Well-being.

She had come to realize, that if she was not in
Well-being that she certainly could not give of herself
In any productive way in order to help another.
So, she then focused on her own Well-Being.

What is it that I need in order to dwell in Well-Being?
The answers came simply and abruptly:

I must reside in peace in my heart
No matter what situation I find myself
I must know within myself that all is well
No matter what situation I find myself
I must know that no matter what the situation
That I exist within an all knowing situation
Of divinity that marks my way without confusion
Ever knowing that I dwell in abundance always
There is no lack where I dwell and I am safe and secure
In my knowing of existance that is me in this moment.

The Big Elephant then took a moment to embrace
The All That Is that dwells within her and she imaged
Her gratitude of Union with the One that she Extended
In this Manifestation in which she found herself.
Mission Complete came to her mind and she stamped
Her Energy onto the plains and the planes before her.
All was well in her world.

Then she rested.

Love, Deb

And So It Is !

Well said BE and Deb.

It reminds me of a portion of Wayne Dyer's recent seminar airing on PBS called Wishes Fulfilled. It begins with a Biblical quote from Job 33:15-16:

"In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls upon men,
while slumbering on their beds,
then He opens the ears of men,
and seals their instruction"

Wayne goes on to explain that it is in sleep you enter the world of your subconscious mind. Sleep is its natural state, yet it rules about 96% of your waking life. Why? Because, as the quote above says, it is during this time the subconscious receives our directives/intentions (feelings) and seals their instruction for manifestation! He feels the last 5 minutes of our day, just before going to sleep, are the most important 5 minutes of our day.

He suggests we use those 5 minutes to re-affirm those intentions we desire to experience (e.g., the powerful I AM affirmations, etc) because in this way we are directing our subconscious to seal these instructions for manifestation.

This entire writing by the BE is just that! A beautiful directive to the subconscious in the last 5 minutes of the day! :)

Thank you for sharing it with us...

Love...Peg

The Big Elephant pondered in the moment
As she dealt with the physicality of her being.
There seemed to be some despondancy
That left her amiss and she didn't quite know
How to embrace this infraction on her being.

It was then that she so realized that she was connected
To those in her life that were going through scenerios
That she couldn't describe other than it was beyond her experience
And that all she could do was to be with them in the spirit of her soul
Yet knowing not the immediacy of the experience.

It was then, The Big Elephant realized the best thing that she could do
Was to simply provide loving energy to surround another in a hug
And to allow that energy to work in whatever manner was needed
For that one that struggled. So she allowed her energy to be with that one.
And for the moment, she felt that she had done all that she could do.

For, until one comes to the moment of reckoning, one does not know
What position they will take on there successive journey.
One can spout all types of recommendations but until one is, indeed
In the moment, does one find they have to deal with the physical first
And that the spirtual has not yet arrived.

But, when it does, all doubts are layed to rest and one knows that what
They have striven towards, does indeed exist and reside within their realm
Of consciousness - the realm of being, simply being.
And in that realm, there is no judgement, not criticism, no doubts
It is all free range knowing of who you are in the entirity of the Universe.

I so love you,
The Big Elephant and Deb

See, Deb?
 
You said you thought BE was inspired by MamaSaki's condition, but as you can see here, her poem applies to the families and friends of those taken in yesterday's mayhem. This poem is an inspiration on many levels. Love you so much for posting it.... Love, C.

Isn't that the beauty of the written Word...
it touches each of us in our own personal moment...
for each one, the meaning may be different...
yet the core essence - the energy of Love -
is the magical Power behind the written Word...
which connects us all !

Thanks BE and Deb...

Love you...Peg

I'm on the Verge of a New Awakening!
 
I am on the verge of a new awakening. It has to do with our level of vibration being in congruence with the new "cycle of time" that begins tomorrow, 12-22-12.

If one is in synch, then there will be no sense of displacement but simply like stepping on an escalator and continuing to move with the flow into a higher realm of understanding.

"I love you" is that flow of energy.

I love you,
Deb

The Big Elephant sensed something in the air
So she turned to find someone there
Someone she hadn't seen in a while
Someone she most respected and adored.

The energy then came to surround her in an embrace
Just like she had felt the first time it was presented
And she stood there and held this essence near
As the energy continued to grow and flow forward...

Taking her along with it....

She realized, again, that all is connected, all is connected.
As she was drawn forward with this loving energy
She embraced all in her life with a feeling of continuity
A knowing of singularship extended through many.

And all of a sudden, she heard her heart beat along
With billions of others in an orchestra of tones melding
Her ears perked as she cupped the tones that she was receiving
And she embraced the vibrations that were being emitted.

It was as if the Whole World came into unison at that moment
That one singular moment when all was in perfect harmony
And it held her as if she were floating above the ground
It was then that she knew the perfection of that connection

And she knew that all would be well....

Love,
Deb
