Self-Erasing Slate

“You can’t erase a blank slate.”

It’s lyrics from a song Danielle was singing to herself last night. It boomed at me. Um… I have a feeling this is going to be a short post.

Why do you say that?

I think I already know the answer to my own question.

What’s your question?

What does “You can’t erase a blank slate” mean?

Alright. What does it mean?

It means, there’s nothing to clean if one haven’t really created anything.

Now you got Me, dear one. What does that mean?

The world is a blank slate. But some of us are afraid to step out into the world because…well, maybe for several reasons. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of responsibilities, fear of criticism, fear of what others may think of us, especially when it concerns our loved ones. And many, many more reasons. The list is endless!

You know very well, my dear, that there is only one reason to sum up all of those you have mentioned.

Yeah. Fear. Anyway. So one can’t erase a blank slate because there’s nothing on the slate. There’s just air or thoughts or figments of the imagination hovering above that slate. Including dreams and aspirations that are waiting to be fulfilled. To me, every morning is a blank slate. Because yesterday’s gone. It doesn’t exist. It’s just air. I get up from bed and there right in front of me is a blank slate. Waiting to be filled with anything and everything I want. I don’t even have to erase it. It’s self-erasing.

Oh, I see. It’s a self-erasing slate. Does everybody have one?

Of course. But some people choose to switch off the self-erasing mode. So it gets filled up and congested with the past. So there’s no room for new stuff.

Hm…and a self-erasing switch. What other features does it have?

Oh, well. It’s white. You know, like a white board. And it comes with rainbow markers so you can use any colour you want! Draw your dreams and future plans with as many colours as you like! Um…I think this metaphor is getting ridiculous. I should stop.

Never ever stop, my child.

Okay.

Leave It To The Will of God Because God’s Will Will Prevail

leap of faith210 November 2014 Monday

God, You said Your Will will still prevail. Isn’t that the same thing as “leaving it to the will of God”. Which You say is a mistaken belief. I’m asking because there might be others out there who may say, “Well now. If God’s will will still prevail then all we have to do is wait.” So, isn’t that the same thing as ‘leaving it to the will of God’?

Tell Me, if you hadn’t created your reality what do you think would have happened?

You mean if I didn’t send The Message?

Yes.

Honestly? I have no idea.

Precisely.

What do You mean? I don’t understand. What is so precise about me not having an idea of what would have happened if I hadn’t created my reality?

I Am pointing out to you that you have no idea of what is the agenda of your soul in this realm. And I assure you that you have an agenda. Everyone has an agenda. Or else you would not be alive in the first place. The difference between those of you who are ‘leaving it to the will of God’ and those who are ‘creating their reality’ is in how to use AWARENESS. Awareness is the consciousness or the knowing that in order to accomplish one’s purpose one has to use the soul as a guide. The key word here is USE. You created your reality by using the soul which is courage. You broke rules and regulations which took a lot of courage. The soul knows no rules or regulations. But when you ‘leave it to the will of God’ you are using nothing. Prayers maybe. Prayers are thoughts. Thoughts do not require much action. There are those who keep praying to be rich. Do they do anything about it?

Yeah. They buy lottery tickets.

We discussed that already. That is still leaving it to the will of God. You are still yearning to be rich. Those who buy lottery tickets–do you think each and everyone of them win every time they buy one?

No.

No. Most of them are still leaving it to chance. In order to be rich one has to work really hard. Now, let’s say everyone worked hard and persisted in their endeavour to be rich. And nothing will stop them in their goal to be rich. Whenever they fall from some mishap or disappointments they would get up and trudge on again. Do you think these people will succeed in becoming rich as they dreamed they would be?

I think so.

There is no thinking about it. These people who put their blood, sweat and tears into their endeavours will eventually reach their goal and probably acquire extra benefits along the way like a beautiful family, accolades and honors for their hard work. And it is especially so when they are aware and are of assistance to others who are struggling in their dreams to be rich as well. No man is an island. Would you like to look up the meaning?

My pleasure. No man is an island means “No one is self-sufficient; everyone relies on others. This saying comes from a sermon by the seventeenth-century English author John Donne.”

Do you think rich people become rich on their own?

Nope. A CEO of a company wouldn’t be rich if he didn’t have other people doing other stuff for his company.

A very good example.

Thank You. Why are You using this metaphor, God? This being rich thing?

I have given you this realm for your enjoyment and to enable you to experience joy in each and every lifetime. This world has gone on for too long in the belief that to be poor and hungry is divine. The unaware still believe this. There is nothing wrong with being rich. That is what I Am trying to say. If you want to be poor, that is also okay. If you enjoy being poor, if being poor gives you joy–

That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard! Somebody sang a song in The Voice the other day that went, “Mahirap maging mahirap.” It’s hard being poor. How can being poor give one joy? It’s contradictory in terms.

Good observation. The soul is suffering because the body and mind are suffering. Now tell me–do you think the poor dream of being rich?

Of course.

Then why don’t they work hard to be rich? Why do you think that is so?

Because it’s considered sinful to be rich. It is not divine to be rich. Jesus was supposed to be the poorest of the poor and Jesus is supposed to be God. So God is poor. That is the belief.

Yes! But the soul knows that it is entitled to everything this world can offer. But the spiritual belief and teachings now is that it is a sin. This makes all of you very confused. And when all of you are confused so is the universe. A poor person who longs to be rich will be sending confused signals to the universe. So that is what the body and mind will do. It will do all it can to be confused about being abundant. The soul will work to the bone and yet still live hand to mouth. Every signal it sends out to the universe will be factors in hindering abundance from its reality. Factors like not being able to find a job, or ill-health, relationship problems, vices, crime, etc. The soul may blame it all on external influences but in actual fact you are always attracting exactly what you are sending to the universe. And while all this is happening, the soul is fervently praying for a better life, to be rich, to be in good health. And when it comes to creating they will have the mentality of “I WILL LEAVE IT TO GOD.” And then sit around and wait and indulge in the same confused activities all over again. It will be never-ending. Finally, the soul leaves its physical body without experiencing joy to the fullest.

That’s sad and very true. But what about those who are rich but they’re not aware that they are truly deserving of their abundance?

That is also contradictory in terms, child. The soul who is rich and has joy would have already accepted that it is deserving of its hard-earned abundance. They are probably even helping others to experience joy that comes from abundance. That is where true joy comes from. Not from abundance alone.

I am getting very weary of all this talk about being rich and abundance stuff. Can we get back to our topic?

We are still within the topic, child. When it comes to your purpose in life there is no such thing as ‘leaving it to God’. That is the easiest way to run away from responsibilities. That is the old world. The way to live in The New World is to have–

I know! To have awareness. Awareness of the problem. Acknowledge the problem. Acknowledge means to claim, to be responsible for the problem. And hence to find and to work out a solution.

Well said. When you ‘leave it to God’ it is only being aware of the problem. And thereafter wait for someone else to acknowledge the problem. ‘Leaving it to God’ is passing the buck to someone else. Giving the responsibility to someone else. For whatever reason there may be. Perhaps avoiding blame for mistakes that may occur or just plain indifference. Whatever reason, the ‘leaving it to God’ mentality will not solve the problem. The problem will fester and may turn catastrophic and may hurt others in the long run. Not only the parties involved. What I Am trying to say is–God does not solve your problems. They are your problems after all. You created those problems and then you expect God to solve them for you? Where is the logic in that?

Nowhere. Then that means that’s where ‘Your Will will prevail’ comes in.

Yes.

How?

All of you will keep coming back each and every lifetime until My Will prevails. And guess what.

What?

All of you are still the ones who will be creating My Will. Meaning, I will have messengers such as yourself and Neale who will be persuading other souls who did not create their realities in this lifetime to create it in another. Or another. Or another. For as many lifetimes as possible. Until the soul finally succumbs to My Will.

Oh no. Do You mean to say I have to go through all this shit all over again in other lifetimes?

Looks like it.

No!

You don’t have to, you know.

I don’t? How?

By defeating your purpose.

What To Do When A Loved One Has Died

imageedit_2_641936650428 October 2014 Tuesday 7:19am

God, this morning, You popped a thought in my head about what to do when a loved one has died. This was in an old book that I have by Norman Vincent Peale. I don’t know why but it sort of stuck in my subconscious for the longest time.

Have you looked it up?

Yup. I had to dust off the dust and the book is dog-eared and yellow stained and all that.

Well?

Right. Part Three: What’s Your Trouble. Chapter: A Loved One Has Died. Item number 4–

Why are you dallying, child?

I’m not! It’s just that our posts these days are so short, I thought I’d expand it to make it more professional, you know?

Professional.

Ya.

What do you mean by “professional”?

Um…I have to look it up…

Do that.

Professional–Okay. Lots of meaning but number 13 seems appropriate. Coz it’s the one that’s shouting at–

Joy.

Professional!–a person who is expert at his or her work; Sample sentence: You can tell by her comments that this editor is a real professional.

Now, do you understand what “professional” means?

Sort of.

You can tell who is or who is not a professional immediately. Do you agree with Me?

In your world, it is easy to detect who is or who is not a professional in their field because there will be tell-tale signs of incompetency or expertise as the case may be. We will not go into the specifics because your world has numerous, if not countless experts in their fields. My point is, messengers (like Neale and other spiritual experts) and I, God, have been sending messages to the world now for many, many years. Would you consider Neale a professional?

Like yeah!

How about yourself?

No.

Why not?

I may be a messenger but I’m still learning on the job, God. And as a messenger I feel I’m getting the short end of the stick.

Why do you say that?

Well, coz I’m not exactly sure what the message is all about. Initially, anyway. Awareness comes later.

I decide WHEN you will be aware of the message for a purpose, child. And that is to keep your FEAR at bay. I Am a God of surprises. And surprises is just another word for miracles. If I tell you exactly what the purpose is for your creations you may be in terrible fear or in disbelief. Which will influence you greatly.

You mean like, I’ll be in so much fear I’ll be FROZEN. Or the purpose’ll be too unbelievable that I’ll probably refrain from creating. “Yeah-right” kind of thing.

Exactly. That is why I prefer for you to create your realities and then expect nothing. NO EXPECTATIONS.

NO EXPECTATIONS. NO EXPECTATIONS. NO EXPECTATIONS.

I know what you’re doing, dear one.

I am repeating because it’s really, really important. So now we’ve veered off the subject again. And I think that isn’t very professional.

You’re not a professional, remember?

Yeah…I’m a newbie. I’m a student. I’m OJT. Anyway, our post is slightly longer today so I’m happy.

Child, you know very well that it is not the length of the MESSAGE that is important but the–

Content. That’s why I love our tweets! Only 140 characters and yet You give it so much punch!

Without messengers it will not be possible.

Horn-blowing. Let’s get back to dying.

Right. Let’s.

Okay. Norman Vincent Peale said that when a loved one has died “keep on living in the same old way as far as possible. Do not avoid people and places to which you were previously jointly accustomed. Carry on in your interests, activities, associations as before. To run away and hide yourself is a procedure that tends to develop into chronic moroseness and in extreme cases makes of one a hermit or abnormal introvert. Immersing yourself in the main stream of living helps to soften the pain of sorrow by drawing a large proportion of your thought energy away from your sorrow and applying it to other matters, and it is in the thoughts that pain is felt. I assure you there is no disloyalty to your departed loved one by this attitude. On the contrary, it may be that your loved one, watching from heaven, may be distressed by your withdrawal, for in his now deeper wisdom he may understand the sad consequences to you of such an attitude. GET BACK INTO LIFE.” Peale didn’t capitalize but I feel it’s really, really important.

Yes, it is.

So…who died?

Not who, dear. What.

Oh-kay. What died?

Mistaken beliefs.
