A Tribute to Randy

A Tribute to Randy

Last Thursday, I wrote about the need to live in the present moment. We never know how long we will be healthy enough to enjoy our adventures. We have no idea how long we will live.

Since then, one of my friends passed away. A youngish guy, maybe around 60? He was an essential member of our channeling group, bringing through a wealth of information. He channeled messages from several non-physical energies. Three weeks ago, he channeled a message from Mother Earth.

Last week, he told us that after 30 years of physical discomfort, his pain was gone. For a reason no one understood, after channeling the message from Mother Earth, his pain had evaporated. He felt better, and had more stamina, than he had experienced in years. Four days after that, he crossed over.

This man was a thoughtful, brilliant, talented, compassionate, hard worker. I don't have the details, but my understanding is that he worked hard around his property Saturday morning, laid on the couch to rest, and passed in his sleep. Not such a bad way to go. No need for illness, surgery, or suffering. Yet, a complete surprise to the rest of us.

When I heard the news, my first thought was, "What is point of being psychic if you can't see something like this coming?" Then I wondered, "Would any of us have wanted to know?" No, I don't think so.

In tribute to Randy, I would like to put into writing a few ideas he shared.

* His mantra, "Everything is working out perfectly. That's how we see it and that's what we experience." He marveled at the speed with which things manifested.

*"Don't worry about getting it all done. You never get it all done."

*"When you slumber at night, your consciousness leaves the body. It is just as easy for the consciousness within the body to leave it, as it is for you to fall asleep. It takes no time whatsoever. It is instantaneous and it is the decision of the soul."

*"Why do people die? Why do people live? So long as you are creating experience, so long as you have a desire to live, to experience, to share, to teach, life force from Source flows through you. When you lose the desire to participate in life, sharing your experiences and creating new experiences for yourself, life force stops flowing through you and you cross over.

"You have many opportunities, many windows, to cross over. It is your Higher Self and, somewhat, your consciousness that dictates how long you live. Some have predetermined dates: you finish your mission or you have a contractual agreement with another individual for balancing their energies, then you exit through a window.

"Life force is vitally important. As you bring that life force through you, your health improves because it allows the cells to express their divinity and to absorb the energies from Source. Don't allow the mind to dictate restrictions on the body. Allow the body to express its divinity. Many individuals strangle the life force right out of their bodies. What do you see? Disease. That is ‘dis-ease.'"

Randy talked about living multiple lives at once. If something happened in this life, the opposite happened in another life. If someone survived a car wreck here, they might have died in the other life. While he passed from this life, he may live in a different life.

Randy channeled:

"All possibilities can be expected. Through your Higher Self, through the various energies of your multi-dimensional being, all possibilities are explored.

"In an accident, you are lucky to survive. Your Higher Self and you, your subconsciousness, experience death and experience ‘lucky to survive, but injured,' and ‘lucky to survive and uninjured.' All of the possibilities in between.

"The realm of possibilities exists because that is what you are here for: to explore, to create, and to experience. You may not remember it in your consciousness at this moment, but your Higher Self has a complete listing of everything that occurred. All situations, all possibilities. There is no limitation. That is a wonderful blessing for every one of you. You do not need to wonder ‘why' or wonder ‘what if,' for as you reconnect with your Higher Self, you will know."

"Our Higher Self can split itself off to actively participate in every single life simultaneously."

So, Randy is gone from this lifetime, but he may be physically alive in another lifetime. What I know for sure is that he is "alive" in the non-physical world. That his soul and his Higher Self are relaxing, recuperating, and reviewing all that occurred in this lifetime. It's a pause. He may choose to reincarnate again, he may decide to remain in the non-physical realm as a teacher for us, or he may make a different choice. As he often reminded us, "The possibilities are limitless."

Thank you, Randy, for everything you shared with us: body, mind, and spirit.

We are all One

Quote from a Channeled Message - We are all One

"We are all one" in that we originate from the same Source, the Divine. We are all connected through the Divine. We share life experiences and energy with one another, but we do not have to share with any energy that is at a lower frequency than where we are presently.

If you can, visualize a spider web out in nature which has a great depth to it. In other words, from the top to the center, it would be similar to a funnel. The area around the edges is large, but can be held within view. Visualize this spider web, with dewdrops from the morning mist, so that there are dewdrops adjacent to one another, on every fiber. Each dewdrop reflects that of the other, yet each dewdrop is an individual.

At the present time, until you reconnect with Source, you are individual dewdrops. You reflect to one another the divine within, but you each hold a singular space to experience without the influence of others. Occasionally, through your path, you will coalesce with another and share the energies, the experience. Without that coalescing, the experience of a separate dewdrop does not have a direct affect on you in this experience.

Live Now

Live Now

Lately, I've heard messages about how we make things more complicated than they need to be. When I started this work, I had endless questions about how psychic ability and spirituality worked. I interviewed psychics. I took classes. I listened to channeled messages. Now, I find it all makes sense. It flows together. It's simple. Once I understood (as best I can understand) the system, I discovered that life really is about enjoying the moment we are in.

After years of study, the advice circled back to what I've always heard: Live in the moment. Have fun. Life is an adventure. Live now.

A week ago, I moved my mother to a "Memory Care" facility. She no longer remembers her life, her husband, or her adventures.

We expect to sit back in our golden years and reminisce about all the fun we had. Maybe we will. Maybe we won't. My point? Later in life, you may not be able to savor the memories. The reason to do something is to wring fun from it right now.

A recent channeling brought this message through: "Think about what you are placing your energy on. If it something you are not interested in, it's a waste. Use that energy to make yourself happy, to make yourself feel good, no matter what it is you are doing. It does not matter [what it is]. Feel good about it. Focus your intention and take control of your life. It's a glorious thing."

"Have fun with it all. Kick up your heels and be a little frisky. We will be right there cheering with you."

Who is that Ghost?
Quote from a Psychic - John Hunter

When my wife had our second baby, we were exhausted.

One night, my wife was up with the baby and my wife fell asleep. When she woke up, she saw an energy being, a ghost, holding the baby and making sure she was okay. Holding her, rocking her. My wife is not into all of this, so it was pretty dramatic. Because she was exhausted, she kind of shrugged, said "okay," and fell back asleep.

The next day, she told me what she had seen. I deal with this quite a bit and I told her it was okay. I asked myself, "Who was this person?" and I got "Grandma." Maybe it was my wife's grandma?

My wife thought it was freaky. She knew it wasn't her grandma, but she didn't say that. She was overwhelmed. I reminded her that I protect our house and that things aren't coming in and out unless they are positive.

A year later, we were visiting my family in Idaho, going through a photo album, and there was a picture of my mom in her late 20s or young 30s. My surprised wife said, "That's the woman who was holding our baby."

That is when I realized my mom was watching over us.

Updating our Blueprint

Updating our Blueprint

We all want to create our life exactly as we desire it. Some parts of our life are designed before incarnation. While in the non-physical realm, we work with Spirit Guides to plan our life experiences. We set up challenges and pleasures. We work with other energies to coordinate our arrival on earth so we can share the experience. We draw up the blueprint for our life.

Once here, we work on our lessons and have our experiences. Sometimes, we want to bring a new aspect into our life. Maybe we want more adventure, or financial security, or love. How can we open a new avenue while on the physical plane? How can we update our blueprint? There are three elements to manifestation: intention, voice, and heartfelt emotion.

Intention. Intention can be positive or negative. With a positive intention, we can think, "I want to expand my role in life" or "I want a bigger, more-fulfilling job." Or, we can create from a negative intention, for example, "I don't like so and so, and I wish them harm." The thing is, our mindset toward the outside world reflects back on us. If we focus on the negative, we see more of the negative. If we wish harm to others, harm comes to us. Instead, we can wish others well on their journey and reflect back well wishes on our journey. Expanding our love towards the outside word, expands the love coming to us. So cool.

Voice. When we have a desire, we should voice this wish aloud. Our voice box produces the sound which gives our wish a physical vibration, allowing it to align with other vibrations on the same frequency. Sometimes when we voice something new, it takes a few tries to get the right words. We can experiment with the wording until we click with the right combination.

Emotion. The third element is our heart, our emotion. When we have a strong emotional connection to our dream, and we use the right words, we power our desire.

Our voice organizes and aligns the masculine energy. Our heart organizes the feminine energy and brings things into physicality. The combination of voicing and feeling opens a communications stream with our Higher Self allowing us to update the experiences we seek. Think of it this way. We have a blueprint for our life. Now, we are modernizing and refining that blueprint, maybe even adding a room.

Sit in meditation, breathe in the white light of universal love, expand your consciousness, talk to your angels and Guides, connect with your heart's desire, then voice it. Focus on your wish and bring it to fruition. Look for evidence of your manifestation. When you find that evidence, express your gratitude. Gratitude signals the universe that you want more of what you just received.

It's a lovely cycle of dreaming, manifesting, and gratitude.

Let me know how this works for you.

Quotes from Three Recent Channeled Messages - Simplicity

It is understood that you become distracted as you travel around in your experience. But as you experience this life, is the distraction worth your forgetting who you are? The abilities that you have? Life would be so much easier for you if you sit back and relax and enjoy. Don't complicate your consciousness with minute details.

* * *

To this day, we are still trying to interpret things that are so clear, but we want signs and symbols to give them credence.

* * *

Live your life in joy and love and gratitude. It may sound simple and it really is. Humanity makes it complicated, and there is no need. Love each other. Live in peace.

Past, Present, and Future Lives

Announcement: This Sunday, March 5, the Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be held at the Reid Park DoubleTree Inn from 9 AM until 4 PM. I will be there and I hope you will be there too.

Past, Present, and Future Lives

Are you fascinated by the idea that we live multiple lives? We can live hundreds of lives on Earth, and we can also live in other places throughout the galaxy.

Today, I'm sharing new information about past, present, and future lives. During a recent channeling session I asked how past lives influence current lives. I heard that both past and future lives can influence the present. This can occur because we live these lifetimes simultaneously.

This is what I heard:

"If you had drowned by the river in three or four different lives, you would not have a love of rivers. You would shy away from them. Perhaps someone else would say, ‘What a lovely river,' and you would say, ‘Thank you, but I'll pass.' But, if you are on your 600th life, and those experiences were many lives ago, you could now re-affirm the beauty of the river without feeling in any way jeopardized or threatened.

"Past lives, current lives, and future lives, are all coloring the life that you call ‘here and now.' They are all superimposed on this physical vessel which is carrying the memories and the knowledge. This is why if you need to know something from the past, or need to know something now, or need to know something from the future, it is all visual, all apparent, all seen by those who seek. All that has colored your past, and that will color your future, can be seen right now.

"The amount of energy and power which you give to the past and to the future, affects your here and now. We say, ‘Be focused, be centered, be aware of the here and now.' It has its own gifts."

"Live in the here and now because energy can be exhausted worrying about things which may not happen."

I asked, "Do you think we are living multiple lives at the same time? Are we living our future lives right now, while we are here?"

The answer:

"Absolutely. Yes.

"Where you are headed and where you have been, are all one."

Just as experiences earlier in this current life influence the way we think about things now, experiences from previous lifetimes, also affect this lifetime.

A few months ago, I went to a psychic reader and asked her about the challenges my mother and I have faced. She told me that we had lived 80 lives together, and were circling around the same issues. In some lifetimes, I hurt her. In other lifetimes, she hurt me. I think that we are each working with the theme of standing on our own, and not being told what to do. Neither of us will be bullied into doing something we don't want to do.

This lifetime, I had the opportunity to break the cycle, wish her well, and move on. With the psychic's help, I did just that.

Back to the idea of simultaneous lifetimes. I want to add another illustration of how we can live multiple lives at once.

In her book, The Fun of Dying (Greater Reality Publications, 2010), Roberta Grimes writes:

"There is so much evidence for reincarnation that clearly something like it happens. It is a difficult process to understand, however, since time is not objectively real, so somehow all our lives on earth are happening at the same time. Accounts from upper-level beings suggest that we think of reincarnation not as a linear process, but more as a vat from which the bucket of each lifetime is dipped and back into which each lifetime is poured, and that is how I have come to envision reincarnation. But who knows?"

What do you think?

Quote from a Channeled Message
Quote from a Channeled Message - What have YOU done?

"Do not give your power away to what you see in print. Give your power to the things which have been proven true: your beingness and the way that YOU affect Mother Earth. Each day, you affect Mother Earth. Have you made the world nicer? Kinder? More gentle? In that case, the world is in a better place. If you have not, it is in a lesser place."

Who are Psychics Talking to?

Who are Psychics Talking to?

Psychics tell me that they generally communicate with one or more of these sources:

Spirit Guides (their Guides and/or the client's Guides)
Ascended Masters such as Mother Mary, Kwan Yin (the Oriental   Goddess of Compassion), Buddha, Christ, and Djwal Khul
The Creator by any name (G-d, Universal Energy, Universal Intelligence, etc.)
Their Higher Self and/or the client's Higher Self (the non-physical part of the soul/spirit)
A group which seems like a spiritual family
A collective unconscious
A cosmic library of images and information
Akashic Records (the energetic record of each soul's development)
A personal consciousness
A global consciousness
The quantum field
The Emissaries of Light
The spirit of a person or animal who has crossed over
The client's personal energy field
Nature's Intelligence (e.g., fairies)
Devas of the plants (Devas are flower angels and there is a Deva for each type of plant)

The information source accessed by each psychic is often linked to their specialty. For example, Mediums connect directly to the deceased person's spirit. The woman who works with flower essences communicates with the Devas of the plants. The gentleman who carves masks accesses a cosmic library of images, and the woman who works with Light energy communicates with the Emissaries of Light.*

A few months ago, I was at a channeling event and heard an interesting explanation of how the non-physical teacher came to communicate with us that evening.

The channeler entered a meditative state and brought forth information from a spiritual teacher. Then, people asked questions.

One guy asked how the teacher had found our group that evening. How had she been selected to speak with us?

The answer:

"When this body goes to her safe room in her consciousness, she asks for those who wish to speak to those who have arrived this evening in this place, to step forward. Some who step forward have tiny little messages and some have a longer discussion. They respond to the vibration that exists in this room. I matched the vibration in this room to answer the questions that that vibration would generate."

She went on:

"It is not a selection process. It is a matching of the vibration in this room generated by all of you, combined. That combined generation will traditionally create the questions that you ask. I am the one who is at the same vibration so I can answer the questions.

"Can I go into another group and communicate and answer their questions? Yes, I can.

"It is like someone who wants to be an artist and someone else who wants to be a plumber. The plumber may answer all the questions about plumbing, construction, and electrical. My interest goes in another direction. I am here because this is what I will say ‘turns me on' in my non-corporeal existence beyond the veil. I am here, looking out these eyes, so, the veil is nonexistent right here. Is that clear?"

The guy asked, "How many beings showed up just because we were here tonight?"

The answer:

"Multitudes. If they stood, and you looked over the top of their heads, you could see off into forever of all the people who show up when they are asked to come."

Bonus Question: The guy asked, "How old are you?"

The surprising answer:

"I am the same age as all of you. I am the same age as all sentient life in the entire universe. We all arrived together."

Every time I go to a channeling event, I learn new things. It was fascinating to hear how channeling works, from the other side's perspective.

Quote - Working with Angels

Quote from a Psychic - Working with Angels

"The angels may tell me something to tell their 'charge' (they call their human their 'charge') and I will ask, 'Are you sure you want me to tell them that?' The person doesn't realize that I am having a conversation with the angels as I am talking to them. I may be talking aloud to the person about a particular point the angels are sharing, while having a different conversation with the angels as I try to understand the message clearly.

"Sometimes, angels express their ideas very quickly. If the angels say something a bit more difficult, I ask for another, or a more-detailed way, of saying what they mean. We all have filters, and I never want to interpret messages my way. I just keep asking until I receive clarity and details. Clarity and information help my clients.

"For example, the angels might show me a watermelon. I'll ask what that means and the angels will say, 'There are as many opportunities for this person as there are seeds in a watermelon.' I don't interpret. I don't say flippantly, 'Oh, you are going on a picnic.' That would be me. People don't want to hear from me, they want to hear from their angels. I just keep asking and interviewing the angels for more and more information. They are always kind and give as many details as I want. I love working with them. They are SO creative and I learn so much."

Acknowledging Who we Are

Acknowledging Who we Are

Psychics tell me that it is important to look at the big picture of who we are. We are energetic beings coming into physical bodies for lifetimes of experience. At the end of each lifetime, we return to the non-physical world to assess all we have accomplished and to determine if we want to come back to Earth and try something new. We live multiple lifetimes.

Even if we are uncertain about this cycle of reincarnation, the psychics say it is wise to wonder if it might be possible, because this view broadens our perspective. They say it is important to acknowledge and validate our existence as a conscious energy.

My question to the psychics was: How can we acknowledge that we have had past lives, and that we are in a cycle of reincarnation, when we can't remember our past lives? If it is important to remember our past lives, shouldn't the Veil be thinner so we can remember them?

Some answers.

1) Goals while on Earth

One goal of incarnation on Earth is to experience things so that we grow and expand. We react to the situations and people which are presented to us. We decide whether to respond to certain scenarios or to ignore them. When faced with a challenge, we may get angry and frustrated, or find a way to apply love to the situation. We face our fears and challenges, select our reactions, and move forward on our path of enlightenment.

Growth can come from experiences in our personal world, or from challenges in the larger world (if we choose to interact at that scale). Life is about our experiences and what we learn at whatever scale we choose to work.

Through our choices and reactions, we get to see who we are, and who we are not. Our primarily responsibility is our personal growth.

Another reason to incarnate on Earth? We feel things. We have emotional reactions. The variety of things we feel in a body are not available in the non-physical realm. We also taste and touch. It's a world of sensory input.

One more reason to be here? Manifestation. On Earth, we learn the basics of manifestation. If we figure out how to manifest whatever we want at this scale, we can return to the other side, apply what we have learned, and manifest at a larger scale.

It's all about us, one life at a time.

2) Why the Veil is Important

When we return to Earth, a Veil of Forgetfulness wipes our brain clean of past-life memories. The Veil allows the opportunity to learn from a fresh perspective. If we came in knowing everything about our self, remembering all we had done and who we are, we would miss the learning opportunity which is necessary for evolution. We can finish a life experience, then circle around again because we don't remember the last lifetime.

Another reason for the Veil is that it blocks our memory of the pain of previous lifetimes. We can acknowledge that we had a lifetime, without remembering the pain and destruction which we went through. We don't need to remember who killed us, or who we killed. This world hasn't always been a relatively-peaceful place.

3) Looking at the Big Picture

Psychics tell me that it is wise to acknowledge that we have had other lifetimes, even if we can't remember the specifics. When we can see ourselves as part of a series of lifetimes, we can see that any particular lifetime is not the "be all and end all," but the opportunity for us to try something new: a different race or ethnicity, a new economic circumstance, or a new kind of family situation.

John Hunter advised that we think big. We are in a learning process which involves trips from a non-physical existence, to a physical one, and back again.

I asked John, "Why is it in our best interest to acknowledge the reincarnation cycle when we don't know it exists because the Veil of Forgetfulness prevents us from remembering past lives?"

The big answer is personal responsibility and empowerment.

John said, "Your goal is to identify where you are. It is empowering to know who you are, what you are, and where you come from. It allows you to be self-sufficient in your growth.

"We have to be responsible as conscious energies. We can think, ‘I am a conscious energy in a universe of other conscious energies at different levels and I am responsible for myself.' We can say, ‘In this life I want to know who I am, where I am, and where I am going.' This is a perfect set of questions for everyone to ask."

John noted that each lifetime makes us a stronger energy. Life repeats itself, but the scale grows. Conscious energies make progress. Growth never stops. Right now, we can take a snapshot of our journey as a conscious energy, in a physical body, as we are evolving into a higher vibrational energy.

When we are willing to investigate the bigger picture of our existence, we begin to take responsibility for who we are and we stand in our truth. We see that we create our lives and our experiences.

The Veil has to be thick enough for us to have fresh experiences. However, when we become interested in learning more about life, we can find ways to take a peek behind that Veil. We can learn from others' experiences and expertise. We can talk to psychics and ask questions about our existence. We can take classes to expand our understanding, or read blogs and books which open our minds to this amazing cycle of life.

What do you think? Do you remember previous lifetimes on Earth? Have you taken a class, or had a psychic reading which has helped you understand how things work? I would love to hear from you. You can send an e-mail to me at

Love Quotes

Love Quotes

Quote from a Channeled Message - Susan Sampson

"Unconditional love is the energy that creates absolutely everything. The universe, your body, the house, the chair, the air, the earth, the minerals. It is the building block. ‘Unconditional love' is the name that we give this absolutely all-encompassing energy that is not a subtle energy. It is like a drum beat in a song. It is heavy. It is light. It is unending. It is always there. Nothing exists without it. Our thoughts do not exist without unconditional love."

Quote from a Psychic - To-Ree'-Nee' Wolf

"The thing that holds the Universe together is love. People think that love is a passive energy. Love is the most serious dynamic force on the planet."

Quote from an Intuitive - John Hunter

Our capability, our mission in life, is to represent love. Love is the answer to everything. Love has the ability to transform negative energy into positive energy. If we are not threatened, if we don't go into fear, we can choose love.

If something comes my way, I look for the positive in it. What that means is that I am finding the love in that energy. Love is at the core of all energy.

If we don't choose to deal with something out of fear, which mean defense, we can choose the positive, or love. That changes everything. Love handles it all.

Love is at the core of existence. Love is at the center of everything. Our concept of love has to be defined. A few of the vibrations of love are acceptance, acknowledgment, forgiveness, and letting go. These words represent vibrations. Together, these vibrations create this all-encompassing vibration of love.

If negative energy is coming my way, I acknowledge it. That means I understand where it is at. It's not a highly-evolved energy, it's a low vibrational energy.

Then I accept it for what it is. I don't judge it. It's a lower vibration. I don't need any part of it. I'm looking for higher vibrations. That's acceptance and acknowledgment.

Forgiveness. I'm not going to judge anything. I know this person might not be feeling up to par. Whatever the circumstances, it's not about me. I don't attach to it.

Letting go. I don't want part of anything that isn't positive.

By enacting those vibrations of love in our personal space, we can see how negative energy comes in, and feels acknowledged and accepted, and there is no power to it. All that is left, is the positive.

If someone comes up to me and they are mad, I don't attach to it. I don't need to be mad because they are mad. I don‘t need to be scared because they are mad. I know there is a person there who is overwhelmed with emotion in some way. They are afraid of something. I just need to acknowledge that. That will calm them down. I‘m not going to feed their fire. I'm going to suffocate the oxygen, so they aren't going to want to deal with me that way.

Tucson Gem Show

Tucson Gem Show

I've written half of three or four blog posts this morning, but I'm not happy with any of them. I think I'm just repeating things I've already written. SO, let me tell you what is actually going on in my life - I've been going to the International Gem Show which is in Tucson, and buying all kinds of lovely pyramids, pendants, and pendulums.

The Gem Show is probably in 40 different hotels and a 100 tents located up and down Interstate 10. People come from all over the world to buy and to sell. Mostly, I go to the metaphysical and bead shows, but there are also high-end jewelry shows, fossil shows, and mineral shows. I've even seen a few dinosaur skeletons. So fun.

I buy metaphysical items to sell at our local Psychic Fair and on the Chakra-Balancing Jewelry page of this website.

At the end of each trip to the Gem Show, I lay my treasures on our dining room table and watch the collection grow. This year, I picked up a few ammonite pendants (fossils which look like snails, split in half), black kyanite, some large crystal pendant points, and three Shiva Lingam stones. What are Shiva Lingam? They are new to me. These are spiritual stones from India. At one venue, I saw Shiva Lingam which were four or five feet long. However, the ones I bought are only three or four inches long.

It's difficult to post photos to this blog, so I'm going to post a few on "My Psychic Search's" Facebook page. You can see the photos (and like the page) by clicking the link (above).

I have company coming this weekend, so most of the crystals have been packed up and moved to my art room. However, a few things which won't fit in my overflowing boxes have ended up on the table next to my meditation chair. Oh yes, that's where excess amethyst and rose quartz pyramids go. Perhaps their presence is the reason I so enjoy my morning meditation. All those good vibes on the table next to me.

That's what is new in my life. How about you? Anything interesting going on? You can let me know by sending an e-mail to

Quotes from Gina Stanfill

Two Quotes from a Psychic - Gina Stanfill

"We are here to experience things and the sooner we experience them, the faster we can move to the next thing we get to experience. But we spend a lot of time going in circles. I talk to people who have been married four times. What is the common denominator in four divorces -- that person. They may still be blaming their exes, and if they are, they will have a fifth ex. Until they decide that they didn't put what they needed to into those relationships, the situation is not going to change. The lesson for that person is going to be how to deal with relationships.

"We each have something we are trying to deal with and when we stop and think about it, we can see that we have common themes in our lives."


"I can help people see their choices, but I can't tell them their future because people are free-willing spirits with choices."

Choosing Compassion

Choosing Compassion

It's hard to write today's blog post. I'm demoralized by what I see and read. I've been wrangling with how to think about politics and all that is going on. I hear "All is in Divine Order," but it doesn't feel like that to me. I hear about "rising up and taking action," but I don't want to get sucked into anger and fear. I need a better way to think about things.

Psychics often remind me that people make decisions out of love or out of fear. It's always better to choose a path based on love, but how do we do that when things look chaotic?

Recently, I read an article by Thich Nhat Hanh which clarified a way forward.

When the President (or anyone else) does something which I think is harmful to certain groups of people, there are two ways to react. The first is an angry knee-jerk reaction. This sucks me into a raging moment and does nothing for my personal peace and tranquility.

The alternative reaction is to think about the people, animals, or ecosystems which are being harmed, and to have compassion for difficult situations. Because I want to help, I can reach out in love. When my motivation for action is compassion, I emphasize love in my life.

I can take the same action with either motivation, but I prefer to act out of love, not out of anger and fear.

You can read Thick Nhat Hanh's article by clicking here: He wrote:

"People often use their anger at social injustice as a basis for action, but that is unwise. When you are angry you are not lucid, and you can do many harmful things. According to Buddhism, the only source of energy that can be useful is compassion, because it is safe. When you have compassion, your energy is born from insight. It is not blind energy. With compassion, we practice in order to learn ways to protect the lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. Just feeling compassion is not enough. If we do not know how to help, we can do damage. That is why love must go together with understanding."

React not because you are aghast, but because you want to help others. Let compassion be your motivation.

If anyone has better advice than this, please let me know.
