The Storm Before The Calm

Why?! Why?! Why?!

Now what?

The bombing in Manchester! Why did they let it happen?!

Who are “they”?

Whoever is in charge of the country’s security! I mean, there have already been recent incidents of terrorism. They don’t label some of these incidents as “terrorism” because there’s evidence that they’re not related to religious extremists. But, to me, every incident that causes terror is terrorism!

So what do you want the country’s security to do? Didn’t you read somewhere that the country is already on high-alert?

Well then, it’s not high enough! I mean, kids have been killed. Ariana Grande’s fans are mostly teenagers, maybe even younger. They were probably even accompanied by their parents to watch the concert.

Who is Ariana Grande?

Oh come on, God, You know everyone.

That’s true. So back to my question. What do you want the country’s security to do in order to prevent this kind of incidents happening again?

I really don’t know. But I think they should do a better job!

Well, let’s hope they’re reading this. So how did the bombing happen?

It was a suicide bomber. He (or she) was probably among the audience in the concert.

I see. So he managed to slip through security and be among the crowd?

That’s what I said. Why are we going round and round?

Because you don’t exactly know what you want to know.

Yeah, You’re right. There are many people who simply do not understand what is going on in the world right now. Like terrorism, natural disasters, climate change, obnoxious leadership, etc. Some even say these are the “End Days”.

What do you understand from that?

End Days? The end of the world. Where there will be chaos, starvation, hale and brimstone kind of thing.

Do you believe in that?

I used to. Not anymore.

Why?

Because I am aware of the truth. The truth is we are forever. Unless otherwise.

Unless otherwise? Now what is that all about?

Well, messengers are now everywhere doing their best to spread the truth. But some are not exactly so keen on being messengers.

I know. Anyway, what is the truth?

That we can change the way the world is being right now.

How? How can you make a change?

I can’t change the world per se. But I can change how I feel about what is happening in the world right now.

Good. Now answer your own question.

What question?

The question that you started this conversation.

Oh. Why?! Why?! Why?!

No, that was just emotional rant. The other question: Why did they let it happen.

Okay. Why did they let it happen? And the answer is: Change is from within? I don’t understand.

Everything that’s happening in your world right now is the storm before the calm.

Neale’s book.

Have you read it?

Um, no. Sorry Neale. I will soon.

Describe to Me what you imagine the storm before the calm is like.

What comes to mind is the Yolanda disaster. I mean, really. It was the disaster of all disasters for the Philippines. People were really scared. People were praying for their lives, their loved ones, and their livelihood and their homes. Most of these were wiped out in just a couple of days. It was heart-breaking to see so many people heart-broken. And most of them thought it was a sort of punishment for their sins.

God’s punishment?

Yeah. Which is so far from the truth.

What is the truth, my dear?

Before Yolanda, no one knew of the places that were affected, let alone what sorts of lives people were living there. But during and after Yolanda, people all over the world became aware of the poverty and hardship that those affected were quietly living for years, or even centuries. And the whole world came to help. So that’s sort of the calm after the storm. The calm is awareness. And with awareness we can initiate oneness…Oh okay. Are You saying that terrorism is a sort of awareness? And it will initiate oneness?

Yes. How can you solve a problem if you’re not aware exactly what it is all about? You have to have all the information before you can begin to solve any problem.

I agree with that. So are You saying we need all the information? The country’s securities need to get all the information about the bombing in Manchester before it can solve the problem? So it can prevent future tragedies from happening.

No, child. No matter how much information one acquires about a tragedy, future tragedies will still occur.

I can’t believe You just said that! And You said to solve a problem it is best to have all the information. Now You’re telling me tragedies will still occur.

The problem I’m talking about is of the soul. In order for tragedies such as these to stop occurring it has to come from the soul.

So how do we come from the soul?

Change.

Change. As in change from within?

Change from within is enlightenment. What is enlightenment?

I can’t find any specific meaning online—

No, I’m asking you, child. What does enlightenment mean to you?

Well, it’s being aware of your truth. Being aware of our Power Within. Being aware that we are all one. Being aware that what affects one affects the rest of us. Being aware that change is a personal decision. That change is from within. That you can only change how you feel about something. That what is happening is happening. What matters is what meaning we give it.

Bingo!

Huh?

Those last two statements—put the word Manchester in there.

Okay. What is happening in Manchester is what’s happening. What matters is what meaning we give it. So what meaning do we give it?

What does it mean to you?

To me, it means our children will always be the ones affected by our decisions with regards to how we treat each other. Those decisions will affect us as well because we are the children of the future. As long as we are treating each other the way we are treating each other now, usually with terror, then it will never stop. Generation after generation will suffer. It’ll be a vicious circle.

That is the meaning you give it. The bombing itself may mean something else to someone. But I assure you that each and every life affected by such a tragedy is not for naught. Everything has a purpose. Any major change in your life has a purpose. It is for you to experience who you really are. You are a divine being.

You mean don’t be judgmental. Like try not get revenge and all that.

Does God judge?

No.

Well then.

Oh man. That’s hard. When a loved one has died in such a tragedy, it hurts so bad that all one can think of is retribution.

I have sent you nothing but Angels.

Bad Angels.

. . .

Sorry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Silver Screen

18 May 2017 Thursday 2:30pm

 

“Nobody imagines the screen too big.”

Yup, another alarm that woke me up this morning. But no worries, I went back to sleep.

What time is your real alarm anyway, child?

I have two actually. One is at 4:45. And the next one is at 5.

Why do you have two alarms?

There was this one day when I went back to sleep after my 5am alarm went off. And needless to say when I woke up an hour later, I went into panic mode. I had to get my son ready for school within half an hour!

So what happened?

All’s well that ends well, I guess.

Did it happen again?

No, not really. These days, I get enough sleep. Maybe it’s my new bed.

That’s good to hear. Or maybe because you’re at peace with yourself?

Yeah, You could say that too. I guess when you accept and bless everything all the time…well, not all the time. Most of the time, you’ll be at peace with yourself. With your soul…Um, God?

Yes?

We forgot about the alarm. That statement we’re supposed to discuss?

Ah yes. “Nobody imagines the screen too big.”

Yup. That one. Are we talking about the silver screen again?

Why do you call it the silver screen?

I dunno. Let me look it up…Okay. Urban Dictionary says “The real name is called silver lenticular screen, is a type of projection that was popular in the early years of the motion picture industry. The term “silver screen” originated in reference to the actual silver content embedded in the material that made up the screen’s highly reflective surface. The term “silver screen” has passed into popular use as a way of referring to projection screens in general and motion picture projection screens, and also known for being used in theaters.”

Did you know about that?

You mean about the projection screen having silver content embedded in it? No. But when You asked me to look it up, the thought came to mind even before I looked it up. Two plus two equals four kinda thing, You know?

Word association, you mean.

Yeah. That’s what life is all about. Or rather what soul language is all about. Soul language is all about word association.

Like your name.

What about my name?

Joy.

Yes, that’s my name.

Are you—

Oh no.

Oh no what?

Oh no, don’t associate me with the word “happiness”.

Why not?

I’m not happiness. All the time, anyway.

When was the last time you were sad?

Major sad?

Yes.

When Dad died.

And since then?

Since then…maybe one and a half months ago?

Why?

Um…never mind. There are some things a girl likes to keep to herself, is that okay?

That’s perfectly okay, child. So we can establish the fact that even though you are called Joy, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re happy all the time.

No, I don’t want to establish that. Let me just say that to me, the word “joy” isn’t about being happy all the time. To me, it’s about being at peace. Isn’t God also called joy? So I prefer that we establish the fact that God is joy because God is peace. God is love. Love and peace seem to go hand in hand with joy. Am I right?

Yes, you’re right. You keep using the word “establish”. Do you know what it means exactly?

That’s what dictionaries are for. Establish can mean “to show to be valid or true; prove.” Sample sentence is “to establish the facts of the matter.”

What else does it mean?

There are eight of them!

Read to Me the first one.

“To found, institute, build, or bring into being on a firm or stable basis.” So what’s this got to do with the silver screen?

Oh, yes. The silver screen. Nobody imagines the screen too big…Okay. So what’s the latest movie you’ve seen lately?

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 last Sunday.

How was it?

Honestly? Noisy.

How come?

I was a little bit overwhelmed with the special effects. You know, the CGI.

Then why did you watch it?

Well, the kids like it. I thought of buying them tickets and they can watch it by themselves. But we all might as well coz we were gonna have dinner out together. Family bonding sort of thing…So anyway, we still haven’t established the “silver screen” thing.

Ah yes. So do you think the special effects or as you call it, CGI, too big for the silver screen?

Um, no. In my opinion, filmakers would be short-changing us if they didn’t go all out to get as creative as they can when it comes to what they want the audiences to watch. And learn for that matter. Because I believe all films are lessons for everyone who’s watching them.

But you must agree that there is a thing called censorship?

Yeah. Google says the meaning of censorship is “the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc., that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.” I guess filmmakers know what is acceptable and unacceptable. And they work within that paradigm. (Ooh, big word.)

So do you agree with our alarm statement?

Nobody imagines the screen too big. Hm…I don’t know. Too big for what?

For miracles, my child. The silver screen is now being used to portray life in the past, present and future. So do you think nobody imagines life too big for miracles?

I don’t know. If we don’t believe in miracles then what else can we believe in?

Precisely.

Decisions, Creations & Dying

Problems of Youth Today:

  1. Looking for love in the wrong places.
  2. Entitlement
  3. Celebrating sadness

This was on a talk show just now. Can we talk about this more? After all, it’s concerning the kids of today. And my purpose is to help the kids of today.

You sound like you’re tweeting.

Huh?

The rhyming. You’re rhyming.

I can’t help it. That’s what comes out.

I’m not saying it’s bad, dear one. In fact, it’s very good. It has longer retention power.

Yeah. Even I can remember some of my own tweets because of the rhyming. And I’ve got 22,700 tweets out there.

And there’s more where that came from.

Well, for as long as Twitter is around. Or I’m around. Or whoever goes first.

Oh, don’t worry. Knowing how resourceful you are, Twitter or no Twitter, you’ll still find a way to get it out there. And you will always be around. Always.

Yeah, I know. But some people would call those words “blowing my own horn”, You know?

Do you care?

Nope.

Then why dwell on it? Besides, my child, if you do not believe in your own magnificence, do you actually think you would be where you are now?

Most certainly not. But I believe there are still people out there who find it hard to believe that these words are actually God’s words. They think I’m making it all up.

Of course you are.

I knew You were gonna say that.

You are making everything up. Not only these words. You are creating  everything. You are a creation creature. Answer Me this: From the day that you have been able to make your own decisions, who have been making your decisions?

Me, of course! Who else would be making them? I mean, there may be loved ones or friends who will give advice and all that, but eventually the decision-making will still come from me.

Even if they tell you not to make a decision?

Yes. Advice is thought expressed with words, either written or spoken, which my thoughts will assimilate. The final decision not to decide is still decided by me by the action of not deciding. Does that make sense?

Yes. And well said.

Thank You. It’s tough sometimes.

What’s tough?

This writing out my thoughts in the form of conversations with God. Miss Doubt shows up once in a while. She’ll say, “Are you sure God would say that?” And then I’ll start amending some sentences because they sound weird. God’s words should flow freely.

Who says?

Me.

Then you are right. God’s words should flow freely from you. And then you are also wrong if you think you cannot amend some words that don’t seem right. Or sound weird, as you say. My child, every single word that is in your head is of God. The right and wrong words. Even your mistakes are of God. There is nothing in this world that is not of God. All of you are God. Even your acts that are against the law are of God. You made up your laws. And you made up the punishments when those laws are not obeyed.

Stop! Stop right there! Murdering or killing someone is of God? You are gonna get us into trouble if I post this.

Then don’t post this.

I know you only too well, my child.

Whatever. So answer me, please. Murdering or killing someone is of God?

A soul has an agenda when it shows up in your realm. And if in that agenda is to be murdered or be killed by someone, then that soul will do everything in its power to be murdered or be killed by someone. And this is a co-creation, by the way. All of you agreed to help each other’s purpose in this world.

I can’t wrap my head around that. I truly can’t.

All souls show up in your realm for a purpose. And if that purpose is to show everyone that murdering or killing someone doesn’t work then–

Then that soul will do everything in its power to be murdered or be killed by someone else. But for the life of me, I cannot imagine someone taking a knife, handing it to someone else and saying, “Here. Kill me.”

But you must admit, it has happened.

Actually, yeah. But not exactly like that. It’s called “euthanasia”. It’s legal in some countries.

There you go. You make up laws that murder is punishable. And then you make up laws that allow mercy killing.

But there’s a difference! To murder is to take someone’s life. And “euthanasia” is to…um…let someone die. Because that someone may be suffering.

Why the hesitation? Is it because you’re simply using different words to describe exactly the same act?

No! Murder and euthanasia are totally different! The victim of a murder is not suffering! While the victim…well, not exactly victim. The patient…yes, that’s it. The patient of euthanasia is suffering. That’s why he or she wants to die.

How do you know the victim of a murder is not suffering? If the soul wanted to leave your realm at the time of the murder?

He or she did not want to leave this realm at the time of the murder! That’s why it’s punishable by law!

That’s where you are mistaken, my child. Death is a choice. The soul made a choice to leave your realm at a certain time, at a certain place and in a certain way. And if murder or killing is the choice the soul had made, then it shall be done. Simple. What makes death complicated are your laws. Your laws about death are of your world. Death in itself is not of your world. Death is of the spiritual world. Death is the transition of the soul into My realm or wherever the soul chooses. The dispensing of the physical body is an illusion. Death has been a mystery since the beginning of time. A mystery which you will never understand while you are in your physical body. And you fear what you do not understand. And what you do not understand you try to make some sense out of by inventing your own explanations about it. And if you can’t explain it, you make rules and laws and scriptures about it. That’s how everything becomes complicated. And one of those things you do not understand is God. So you fear God. And since you can’t explain what God is about, then you create your own explanations and rules and regulations, to what you think will make your world less complicated. Which actually has the opposite effect.

Am I making my own explanations about God?

Of course you are. The question is – Does it ring true? Does your soul wholly and inexorably accept it as truth?

Yes.

If that is the case, then it is the truth. And for others too. Let Me just highlight to you that not everything in your scriptures are untrue. All scriptures are made with love because love is all there is. Discernment comes in when the soul feels unsettled with what it is “seeing” as truth.

That’s the thing. Why did others add or amend scriptures with the untruth? And please don’t say the word “agenda”.

Why not?

That’s the easiest explanation that we can give to everyone.

But it is true, my child. Others amended and added untruths to your scriptures because it was the agenda–

Argh!

Because it was the agenda of their soul. For a purpose.

And what purpose may that be?

So all of you can have fun searching for your own truths.

Another cop out explanation if I ever heard one. Anyway. We actually haven’t discussed what I was suppose to discuss with You. And that is the problems of our youth today: 1. Looking for love in the wrong places, 2. Entitlement, 3. Celebrating sadness.

Easy: 1. Love is everywhere, you only have to reach for it. 2. Nothing worth having comes easy. And 3. Why not? It’s part of life. Done.

I hate you.

And I love you.

Yeah. I love You too.
