Ugliness is the only guardian angel a woman has.
~ Yiddish Proverb

How can ugliness be guarding a woman? That is so weird.

What is ugliness to you?

My feet. Nowadays, I find my feet really ugly. They’re looking really old. They’re wrinkled, full of veins and discoloured. And sometimes even painful.

Alright. Even though you think your feet are ugly, do they still serve their purpose?

Yes, of course.

Do they guard you against being a handicap and not able to walk?

Like I said, yes.

Then that is exactly what that proverb means. Your feet, which you find ugly, are your guardian angels, which are guarding you from not being able to walk.

I guess so. But men have feet too, you know.

Yes, they do. But do they find their feet ugly as much as women do?

No, I don’t think so. Most beauty products are targeted at women. There’s one product that you apply and keep on for a few hours, and then wait for a couple of days—the skin will start drying up and you can peel off the outer layer, revealing the layer below which looks as soft as baby’s skin. I’m thinking of ordering.

What’s stopping you?

Fear. Fear that it’s all just hype. I’m thinking, killing off the upper layer of your skin is really drastic. My feet may even have a bad reaction to it. You know, like an allergic reaction.

But you won’t know that until you try.

True. There are a lot of things I want to change in the way I look. Not just my feet. But they aren’t my priorities right now.

What are your priorities, dear one?

This. This is my priority. These words. This conversation with you and what I’m putting out there into the world.

Why is that your priority? Why is putting out these words into the world your priority?

It’s my purpose. I’m a messenger for The New World. It’s my job.

A non-paying job.

I get paid plenty! I have peace in my soul. That’s more than I can ask for.

Glad to hear it.

Anyway. So why is ugliness the only guardian angel a woman has?…Wait…I think I got it.

What have you got?

The explanation—Women’s beauty, including inner beauty which is love, can only exist when ugliness exists. Without ugliness, also known as fear, how will we see the beauty of women in this world? What I can’t explain is, why only women? Don’t men have beauty too? Don’t men have love too that must be guarded?

Of course, my dear. But with the state of the world right now, is men’s beauty showing up?

Most of the time, no. That’s why we still have wars.

 

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. 

Memory & Intention

29 June 2017 Thursday 2:54pm

“When you come from your memory, you create one kind of experience. When you come from your intention, you create another kind of experience.”

That’s Neale’s tweet.

So what about it?

Can You like explain what it means?

Why don’t you ask Neale?

Well, You’re Neale and Neale is You anyway, right?

Right. And I Am you, you are Me. Along with everyone else.

Yeah. And You’re instant.

That I Am. Alright, then. Let’s get started. Do you know the meaning of the words “memory” and “intention”?

Sort of. But to be more specific, I can look them up.

Do that.

Okay. “Memory” means “the mental capacity or faculty of retaining and reviving facts, events, impressions, etc., or of recalling or recognizing previous experiences.” As for “intention”, it means “an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.”

Let’s keep them short. Memory means previous experiences. Intention means to determine an action mentally. Is there any action that you do often out of memory? As in from previous experiences?

How about brushing my teeth?

Alright. You were taught how to brush your teeth by your parents. Am I right?

Yup.

Now, can you think of another way of brushing your teeth that is not from memory? As in, it wasn’t the way it was taught you?

Yes, actually. I’ve been told to brush my teeth with the other hand once in a while. Just to wake up the other side of my brain. Or something like that.

Which hand do you usually brush your teeth with?

My predominant hand. My right.

Do you know what the word “predominant” means?

Sort of. Not exactly. I know, I know. Look it up…Oh-kay. “Predominant” means “having ascendancy, power, authority, or influence over others: preeminent.”

So you use your right hand, which has more power, to brush your teeth.

Yup.

Have you tried brushing your teeth with your less powerful hand?

My left hand? Yeah, sure.

How was it?

Uncomfortable. Slow. And tiring.

Why do you think that is?

Because I haven’t been doing it that way all along. I’m always using my right hand for almost everything. So when I use my left, I’m not used to it.

But you can do it?

Yes.

So what if you keep using your left hand from now on to do everything? Do you think your left hand will be as powerful as your right?

I suppose so. My son does it. He’s actually left-handed. But when he’s using the laptop, he uses his right to work the mouse. I suppose because he had to ever since he learnt how to use the computer from young.

Why didn’t you get him a left-handed mouse?

Well, he didn’t ask. And he seemed okay with it. In fact, he’s used to it now.

So it was simply understood that he was okay with it?

He never complained. And I suppose getting use to it worked out for the best. Now, in a way, he’s ambidextrous. I suppose You want me to look up the meaning of that too.

You can if you want to.

I want to…Oh wow. It actually has a few meanings. I thought it only means “able to use both hands equally well.” It also means “unusually skillful, facile.” Or “double-dealing; deceitful.” Or as a slang, meaning “bisexual.” So, anyway. That’s what the word “memory” is all about. When I come from my memory, I will create one kind of experience. What kind of experience would that be?

When you brush your teeth with your predominant hand, how does it feel?

Easy.

When you brush your teeth with your less-than-trained hand, how does it feel?

Uncomfortable.

But will you still do it?

Once in a while.

Why?

It’s good to train the other side of my brain?

Why?

So I don’t get Alzheimer’s?

So you’re thinking of the future?

Yes. It’s better to take care of my health now rather than wait for it to deteriorate in the future. Does that make sense?

Very much. Let Me put it another way for you. It’s better to take care of what needs taking care of now rather than wait for it to deteriorate in the future.

How can You be sure what needs taking care of now will deteriorate in the future?

Everything deteriorates, my dear. Except your soul.

That sounds like we’re done here…Oh wait. No, we’re not. How about the word “intention”? When I come from my intention, I create another kind of experience. You haven’t explained that.

You explained it actually.

I did?

When you “intentionally” brush your teeth with your less-than-powerful hand, how does it feel?

Like I said, it’s uncomfortable.

But is it good for you?

Yes, because it’ll wake up half of my brain.

Why don’t you want a half-asleep brain?

Because I want to be as healthy as possible.

There you go. To cap up, creating your reality from memory produces normal results. Creating your reality intentionally awakens the soul. And an awakened soul is magnificent.

Awesome! Um…Do you think I’ll get the same meaning from Neale if I ask him?

The meaning of everything is the meaning you give it.

So does that mean a yes or a no?

. . .

Never mind.
