Feelings Vs Actions


9 September 2017 Saturday 2:26pm

…That’s judging, my dear.

Sorry.

Allow the soul to walk its path. That’s what freedom is all about.

Nothing else I can do, can I?

You can be frustrated and angry. Feelings are more powerful than what you are doing, do you know that?

You’re kidding, right? How can feelings be more powerful than actions?

Remember that time when you were so angry with your husband that you hit a clothes hanger against a wall and it broke? And then your children began crying because of the situation?

Yeah. I had to carry Danielle to calm her down.

It took you a while to calm down too. Even after he left you were still angry. That is a good example of showing that feeling is more powerful than action. The time it took for that clothes hanger to break was only a second. It’s the same if you were to break someone’s neck.

Yeah. Like Edward Norton in American History X.

Yes. His character’s anger and belief of discrimination were so powerful that it landed him in prison. His character was brought up to believe in a certain belief that brought those kind of feelings to the forefront. Hence, imprisoning his true self. Literally imprisoned. In truth, an action may only take at the most a few hours. Or at the least a couple of seconds.

There have been victims, let’s say, of an earthquake, that have survived being buried for a few days. That’s sustaining an action for a few days, isn’t it? So isn’t action more powerful? As compared to feeling something? 

When you say action there, you’re saying being buried alive?

Yes.

If he was buried alive, he wouldn’t be moving that much now, would he? My point is, your physical body has only got years in terms of being alive on the earth. As for, let’s say, the feeling of anger (like with Edward Norton’s character breaking that man’s jaws and neck), it is so powerful that it has been made into a movie. And countless movies, books, art, etc., have been made and will be made about the anger of humanity with humanity. Your actions dissipate into oblivion as soon as it is executed. But feelings of anger resonate through time and space. Repeated and enacted over and over again in your world via millions and millions and billions of people by different ways and means of actions. It is feelings of anger also known as fear, that fuels actions. It is feelings of love that fuel all other actions that are constituted in love. Feeling is of the soul. The soul is forever. Your physicality lasts as long as each lifetime. Which you may one day not choose anymore. Your physicality has a limit because your soul can unchoose physicality if it so chooses. Your actions are of the physical. Therefore your actions too have a limit. The question is – does humanity wish to reach that limit in anger and resentment and in fear instead of with peace, love and joy? Will you rejoice with love and joy if we so choose that this realm should end? Or will humanity die from its own suffering?

God, that’s depressing. 

Isn’t it? But here’s something to rejoice about – Your soul is forever. I Am your soul. I Am forever. You cannot not be forever because your soul exists for the sake of existing. Your soul simply is. Feelings are of the soul. Hence, feelings are more powerful than actions.

So are You saying feeling angry can be forever? That a soul can come back in another lifetime and still be angry about what he was angry about in the previous lifetime?

Then why do you think you still have wars and atrocities? The soul chooses to come back in order to finish unfinished business. The soul is never satisfied until it has accomplished what it has set out to do in this world. And you have no idea what your soul will choose until it has chosen it. But now that awareness is in your world and some of you are no longer sleepwalking in the untruths about who you really are, isn’t it time to choose what you wish to feel in this lifetime? Because you have a choice. You always have a choice. You can choose to bring your anger closely guarded within your heart to your deathbed, or you can bring love, compassion, empathy and forgiveness instead. Your body shall wither in the earth to be seen no more. As for your soul, if it has absorbed indelible resentment and anger, I assure you, you will choose to come back with those feelings because it has unfinished business.

Wait a sec. By the sound of that, it’s like You’re using fear to make us choose love.

No, dear one. I Am using the truth. 

The Photo Machine – A Dream

17 August 2017 Thursday 5:17am

I was stalking a couple. When the man noticed I was following them, I pretended to ask for directions. I asked him where to get a blood test. He pointed to a building.

Inside, there were a couple of men sitting around in an office. I spoke to one who had greying hair. He ignored me. I asked him again whether this was the place to get a blood test. And still he ignored me. I persisted. Then he finally said he wasn’t paying attention. Which, I thought, was contradictory.

I was about to walk away when somebody approached me and helped me out.

He brought me to what looked like a photo studio. He told me I have to have my photo taken.

While he was preparing his machine, a tall and dark man came into the studio who wanted to use the public phone. He turned to me as if he wanted me to remember him. I thought I did but I changed my mind. “No, I don’t remember you,” I said.

The photographer then asked me to keep still because his machine was ready.

But another man came and fiddled with it. I told him, “You can’t use it. It’s in operation right now.” He left.

Then a lady with short, fuchsia-coloured hair came and spoke to the photographer about medicine while he was fiddling with his photo machine. And she kept on chatting to him.

I was keeping very still when a wire-like arm slid out from the machine and hovered around my face. It traced a straight line right down my nose which hurt. I thought for sure there was blood. It seems the line on my nose is a mark, so that the machine can detect my face for the photo.

I waited for the machine to take the shot.

I woke up.

 

How Did We Ever Survive Without Mobile Phones?

19 July 2017 Wednesday 4:46pm

Rene’s mobile phone crashed. So today he’s uncontactable. And yet I’m not worried as compared to when he has a phone and he’s contactable, but doesn’t reply. That’s so weird.

It’s because you know that there is no way for you to contact him. That certainty gives you peace of mind that there is nothing you can do about the situation. You have accepted the situation as it is: He is uncontactable. While when your son was contactable and doesn’t reply, it’s worrisome. Any parent would be worried when he or she has provided a way of connecting with a child, especially during an emergency, and yet there’s no response. The parent’s mind will start to imagine the worst scenarios out of fear.

But the only difference between those two situations is that there is (or lack of) a mobile phone. So which is better?

Which do you think?

I asked You first!

I Am you, you are Me.

Fine. I believe not having a mobile phone is better.

That’s a surprise.

Yeah. I’m surprised too. Maybe it’s because someone mentioned to me about how in the world did we ever survive without mobile phones before. The answer that came to me was that we did. We did survive without mobile phones at one time. Even if there was an emergency. The only difference is that we can get things done faster now. And the world is a lot smaller. We are more connected. But believe me when I say, there are still people out there in the modern world or first world countries, who prefer not to have mobile phones. For whatever reason. They rely on what’s available when absolutely necessary. And they’re surviving. I suppose if I tried it I would survive too.

How about your kids? Do you think they’ll survive?

Of course, they will. But why dwell on it when it will never happen? To most youths nowadays, phoneless is like being armless. But if there ever was a mobile phone holocaust or something, I believe we will adapt. Humanity is a survivor. Oh man. Why have we suddenly involved the whole world into this?

The world is your mission, remember?

Yeah. I forget sometimes.

And you forget that when you broadcast your reality to the world like this post, it is to help others. Messengers are teachers who experience what they are teaching. So what lesson do you think this situation is bringing to others?

Like what You just said, I have accepted the situation as it presents itself. If there’s nothing I can do about a situation, then I accept it. It may be I who need to change how I feel about the situation. Rene has no phone today so he’s uncontactable. And that’s that. Oh man…Suddenly, I’m worried.

Worry is like a rocking chair.

Yeah, I know.

Haven’t you learnt by now that everything that happens has a purpose? And what matters is how you deal with what’s happening or what has happened. It’s good to find out why it happened. But try not to let the why’s (especially if you will never know what they are) hinder you from dealing with the problem. If there is one. If there isn’t a problem then accept it as a learning tool and move on.

Now, I’m getting really worried.

Worried about what hasn’t happened? You’re worried about what doesn’t exist? Is worry worth the time and energy about something that doesn’t even exist?

~~~~~~

10:40pm

If worry stops me from getting anything done, then no. It’s not worth it. Coz that’s what happens when I worry.

Worry can also be useful. So what did you do when you were worrying about your son just now?

I texted his teacher to ask her what time he left school. Because he wasn’t home yet at the usual time. The teacher replied that he left the school quite late. And I heard on the radio there was heavy traffic on the highway. And with that, at least I had an idea of his ETA.

So he came home after all.

Yeah. All’s well and all that. So You were saying about how worry is useful?

A little worry makes you cautious. Which is good in certain situations. But worry can be set aside or even be put to rest when the right information is on hand.

Yeah. But what if–

Don’t.

Don’t what? I’m just asking. What if something really happens like if–

Don’t. What-if’s are the same as worry. You are asking about what doesn’t exist.

But isn’t it too careless for a parent to not think of scenarios when their child may need help during emergencies? I won’t be a good parent if I simply don’t care about my child’s well-being, isn’t it?

All parents care about their children’s well-being. And each parent will try their best to be the best parent. Because of your numerous beliefs, traditions and cultures, there are also numerous methods and styles of parenting. At the moment, there are no specific textbooks or guidebooks carved in stone on how to be a parent in your world.

Is there in Yours? Haha. Kidding.

Yes.

I was kidding. Are You serious? You have guidebooks on how to be a parent in the realm of the absolute?

I’m not kidding. And yes, I Am serious. You are talking with The Ultimate Parent of all, are you not?

Oh well then, pardon me.

This world will have the most loving and understanding, patient and comforting, joyful parents if they are guided by their soul. Your soul is God. God is The Ultimate Parenting Guide.

So let’s do it. It isn’t too late for my kids to be guided as per The Ultimate Parenting Guidebook, is it? 

No, it’s not. But what about those who are about to start new families or have newborns?

Don’t look at me.

And let’s leave it at that. For now, anyway. So let’s get back to your son’s phoneless-ness.

Haha. That’s funny. I bought him a new phone before he came home. Well sort of. I got him a second-hand one.

Why?

Coz he might lose it.

Did he lose his old one?

No. But that one is really old. That’s probably why it crashed.

You mean it’s so old nobody would want to steal it.

Um…

Do you know that it’s also judgment when you assume others will do “bad” things which they have not done.

Sorry. It’s just that if I buy him a new one, and he loses it, it will be such a heartbreaker!

Pocket breaker, you mean.

Yes, that too.

Tell Me, how many things have you bought that are expensive and are now just gathering dust somewhere?

Argh! I knew You were gonna bring that up!

My point is, there is no such thing as a happenstance. Even losing things. Or your possessions getting stolen. They are situations your soul planned to happen. You and your soul are always trying to prove something to yourself. Who are you in these situations? Who do you want to be? Who do you not want to be when faced with such situations? The anger, the resentment, the angst, the vengeance stem from the feeling of being victimised. You are never a victim of circumstance. Because that circumstance is your creation. You chose to be in such a place, at such a time, in such a situation. You do that all the time. Unless you have never ventured outside of some dungeon somewhere. But then being in a dungeon somewhere is also your creation. You put yourself in that dungeon for a purpose. And that is to experience what being in a dungeon feels like. It is the same with having your possessions stolen. Your soul wish to experience what losing something feels like.

I understand all that. So fine. Okay. Let’s say I am now experiencing what it feels like to get my expensive mobile phone stolen. I feel the loss maybe for a couple of days…Um, wait a sec–Actually, I have experienced having my phone stolen before. And I realised at that time that as soon as it disappeared that I’ve actually been wanting a new phone all along before it got stolen.

Your thoughts are powerful enough to attract situations that will create your reality in order for you to experience that particular thought.

So I guess Rene wanted a new phone all along. That’s why it crashed.

What kind of phone was it anyway?

Um…An iPhone 4.

Poor boy.

His new phone is an iPhone 6, okay!

A second-hand one.

Argh!
