The Story of the Little Girl, the Boat and the Sun

There was once a boat who asked everyone to come on board.

The boat said proudly, “I will protect you from the storms and the strong winds, my dear ones. Come on board, everyone!” The boat bobbed up and down on the water as one by one everyone got on board.

Then a little girl asked as she sat down, “Where are we going, Boat?”

The boat replied, “To look for the sun. The clouds have taken away the sun. Let’s look for the sun.”

The little girl looks at the water, a little puzzled by what she sees. She points down and asks, “What is that?”

The boat answers, “Why, that’s the water, dear.”

“No, I mean, what’s that in the water?”

“You mean the reflection?”

The little girl nodded, “Yes.”

“Why, that’s you!” The boat replied.

The little girl’s face lit up, “Wow, she’s beautiful! Her eyes seem to shine like the sun!” Suddenly, the little girl straightened up and shouted, “Boat! I found the sun!”

“Where?” The boat asked, looking around.

“It’s in my eyes! The sun is in my eyes!” The little girl replied, “The sun is in me!” She stood up and said, “I have to go, Boat. I have already found the sun. I hope you find the sun too, Boat.”

And she turned to the others on board the boat and wished that each of them will find their sun.

So she disembarked, walked on the water and stepped ashore.

She turned and shouted, “Don’t worry, Boat! Don’t worry, everyone! I’ll come back and help you find your sun!”

 

Beauty Sleep & Coffee

There it is again, God! Another article that says coffee is bad! Why are You sending me these warnings? Am I getting addicted to coffee?

Only you can answer that question, child.

Yeah, you’re right. Alright then. Tomorrow morning, I’ll drink soy milk instead and see how it goes.

The only way to find out whether you have a crutch is to remove the crutch.

That’s a good word for an addiction – a crutch. Yup, maybe I should stop drinking coffee for a while. These days, or rather, these past few nights, I’m finding it hard to fall asleep right away. Even though I’ve only had like 4 hours of sleep. Like now. It’s already after 11 and I’m still awake. Usually by 9:30 I’ll be dozing off while reading. But now, even when I’m lying down, my eyes don’t want to stay shut.

You know very well that sleeping is not only about closing your eyes. It’s about communing with Me. Sleeping is when your body will slow down its vibration, slow down its energy, in order for the soul to be able to take charge and be free of its confines for a few hours. Sleeping is your soul God-ing. Ever hear of dancing freestyle? Well, sleeping is your soul flying freestyle.

Cool! So what happens when the body has trouble sleeping? What happens to the soul?

The soul will struggle to be free, of course. That’s when you think your mind is going crazy thinking all sorts of thoughts. In actual fact, it is your soul persuading your mind to calm down so that your soul can fly free for a few hours. This struggle between the mind and soul is what you believe to be the cause of your sleeplessness in the first place.

Like what’s happening to me now. I started writing this because I can’t sleep. And the cause of my sleeplessness may be the two cups of coffee I had this morning.

Is that your usual? Two cups?

No. I usually just have one cup. This is brewed from ground coffee via our coffeemaker. The other cup was instant.

So you have ground coffee as well as instant coffee at home?

Yup. The ground coffee is supposedly healthier. While the instant is…Well, for an instant cup of coffee – just add to hot water. It’s convenient. The brewed coffee tastes much better though.

So why don’t you have two cups of the better-tasting coffee?

It’ll be too strong for me! The last time I had two cups of brewed coffee one after the other it gave me a buzz all day! I was like a busy bee!

Isn’t that good?

Yes, in a way. But I don’t want to be dependent on coffee to become busy. Or to be able to accomplish anything. That’s why I’m planning to go cold turkey with coffee for a while. Maybe I won’t drink it everyday. Maybe just on the weekends like I use to. Besides, I really need my beauty sleep. And I need lots of it! Haha.

So goodnight then, dear one.

Goodnight…I hope.

Goodmorning, God.

So how is it going?

How is what going?

The cold turkey.

Oh. Okay, I guess. I’m writing here and talking to You, which is good. And I have a very strong feeling this is for posting on my blog.

That is entirely up to you. Did you sleep well?

I slept well considering I was up until after 1am and had to get up again at 5. The lack of sleep will usually catch up with me after lunch. I’ll have a power nap then. It’s good to be a lady of leisure, haha. Which I think my ex will not be so happy about. I think he’s sort of hinting I should get a job to help with the kids’ expenses. Maybe I’ll apply at MacDonald’s or something. Haha…Actually, it’s not that funny. I really need to “upgrade” myself if I want to get back into the rat race. Or research about some online business or something.

There you go. It wasn’t the coffee, was it?

Um…What are You talking about?

The future is what is causing your sleeplessness. Which is not uncommon.

But You told me last night it was my soul struggling to be free that was causing those crazy thoughts in my head.

The struggle is your subconscious persuading your conscious mind to calm down. Your soul keeps saying, Everything will be alright. Accept and bless the situation. Do what you can do. Peace comes from having no expectations. While your mind argues, Everything will NOT be alright! What if I am mistaken?! What then? What if this?! What if that?!

That wasn’t what was happening to me last night.

It may have been. The “struggle for sleep” is a common problem in your world. Most of the time, it is the mind that wins the struggle. Or shall we say, your pharmaceuticals are the winners most of the time because most of you believe that lack of sleep can be relieved with chemicals. There is no chemical that will ever be able to heal the soul. Your lack of sleep is your lack of peace in your soul.

So we’re back to the subject of sleep.

Speaking of which, how did you finally fall asleep?

I continued re-reading Awaken The Species until I felt my eyes go heavy. Oh…and a cup of chamomile tea helped.

 

Punishment

There’s this thing that’s been going on for quite a while now that may need our attention, God.

There are numerous things that need our attention. Which one is it?

This one about the pending execution of convicted drug dealers. Families and their respective countrymen have been pleading for mercy for the government in charge to do away with the execution.

Alright. What is it that you want to know?

Can the government bend its rules?

How do you want the government to bend the rules?

Well, do away with the execution. You know, like maybe they can do life imprisonment instead.

That can be done.

I know it can. But the government is adamant on its stand with regards to the capital punishment for drug dealers. They say they have a battle to fight against dealing with drugs in their country.

Do you think their stance is justified? Is the punishment working? Is the battle against drugs winning? Is the country free of illegal drugs?

There hasn’t been any drug busts in the news lately so it must be working.

Are you always on to the news about drug dealing?

Um…no. Not really. And I know what you’re going to ask next. No, I don’t know whether the punishment against drug dealing is working. In that country anyway. So how do we solve this problem?

It is the same as the problem of migrant deaths, child. The effect is not the problem itself, it is the cause. Why are individuals dealing in illegal substance? Is it for the money? Then the problem is poverty. Is it for the thrill of the activity? Which is hardly likely. No one will purposely risk their life in order to be incarcerated or executed. Whatever the reason, your world believes the crime can be prevented at the level of the effect. When it is the root of the problem that needs the most attention. You create drugs and then you judge them to be “wrong.” You create drugs for a certain purpose and then when they are distributed illegally (which is simply another term for unaccounted distribution), you make a big fuss about it.

Governments make a big fuss about it because others are making a profit from distributing a substance that may be harmful to others and may even cause death. That is why there is a big fuss. But I think these convicts who are about to be executed have already learned their lesson when they served time for their crime.

How about this – put yourself in the shoes of the authorities upholding the rules and regulations about dealing with illegal substances. How would you feel if you relaxed the rules by not applying capital punishment to these convicts? What happens to your reputation?

I will give the impression that I am merciful and compassionate…I think. But then if I do it, as in, do away with the execution or do away with capital punishment, then other drug dealers will not hesitate to pursue or continue their life of crime, will they?

Even if they risk being imprisoned for life? People do not like being imprisoned.

I can think of a few who do. Anyway. So should we or shouldn’t we do away with capital punishment?

Child, you already know My stand when it comes to the word “punishment”, do you not?

Yeah. So we’re back to square one?

You are your own decision-makers. I can only give advice. And I can give you advice until hell freezes over. But it is of no use if you do not heed any of them.
