What Do Cows Drink?

God, what does Y-E-S spell?

Yes.

So then what does E-Y-E-S spell?

Eyes?

Um…Never mind. It doesn’t work here.

What is it about, child?

There’s this video that Danielle showed me last night. It’s someone asking what those words spell. It’s kind of like a trick question but it isn’t. It’s very funny in the sense that the answer is so obvious and simple but some people just can’t get the right answer. Maybe because it doesn’t register in their mind that it’s actually the word “eyes”. They keep pronouncing it either as “ee-yes” or “ease”. The one asking is usually overheard giggling and laughing which makes the prank even funnier.

So it’s a prank?

Well, no. Not really. It’s a trick question…Well…No, not really either. Um…I don’t know what it is.

It’s a trick of the mind, my dear. When you asked the first question, it influenced the answer to the next question. Try doing it the other way around.

I don’t think it’ll work. And it won’t be as funny. It’s like fear, isn’t it? When we put a seed of fear into the mind, it’ll influence how we see the world.

Precisely. So what do you think will happen if you put a seed of love into the mind instead?

Then we will see the world through the eyes of love.

Yes. Through the eyes of the soul. By the way, did you fall for it?

Fall for what?

The trick of the mind?

Nope. Danielle asked me the question before she showed me the video. She was disappointed when I immediately answered “eyes”.

Why do you think that is?

Because she’s asked me trick questions before. I fall for some. So I’m sort of ready for her now.

You’re getting honed.

Yeah. Um…God?

Yes?

What do cows drink?

Water.

Argh. You’re no fun.

The Followers & The Challengers

12 May 2018 Saturday 3:55pm

“Dear Neale…I have been wondering about the role of personality in the mechanics of the mind and system of the soul. I observe that some people have personalities that seem to make it easier for them to operate successfully in our culture — i.e. follow rules and religious doctrine while others are challenging rules and not accepting of structures that govern and make the rules. Can you discuss the role of personality?”

This was on Neale’s website. Neale wrote an explanation but it’s sort of complicated for my kind of intellect.

What is your kind of intellect?

Um…I’m simple? I’m of a simple intellect.

No, dear. You wouldn’t have come as far as you have with just a simple intellect. The soul is simple but complex.

But I just said that Neale’s reply to the query was complicated. And now you’re saying my intellect is simple but complex. If I was also complex then I would have understood what Neale was talking about.

I said the soul is simple and complex. The soul knows no rules. I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that rules make life complicated. Therefore the soul is simple because the soul is free. The soul is also complex because the soul knows everything. The knowing of everything is immense, to say the least. And isn’t the soul life? Isn’t life complex? Therefore the soul is also complex. Now, let me ask you – do you always know exactly what your soul is up to?

No.

Why do you think that is so?

At first, I think I know what I’m doing because I’m thinking of the conscious purpose of what I’m doing while I’m doing whatever it is I’m doing. But later on, I’ll realise that what I was doing had a different purpose altogether. It was a subconscious or even superconscious purpose – the purpose of the soul. Does that make sense?

Read it again – what you just wrote. Does it make sense to you?

Yeah, it makes sense.

You have just created a simple explanation of something complex such as what the soul is up to. The soul is me. The soul is capable of anything. In your world, the body, mind and soul have to act as one in order for you to experience your life agenda. It is these acts which are the physical evidence or components of your personality. Your personality is actually what others observe of you. When others see you act out kindness, they will say you have a kind personality. When they see you act out gratitude, they will say you are thankful or polite. When they see that you’re a forgiving person, they will say you have a generous or tolerant personality. When they see you act out violence, they will say you have a violent personality.

Woah! That was quite a leap there. From kindness to gratitude to forgiving to generous, then bam – violent! C’mon, you gotta ease me into it, God. Maybe put in anger or resentment, or piqued in there somewhere before we jump into violence.

My apologies. But you must agree, dear one, that violence in your world does show up violently out of nowhere sometimes.

I agree. Anyway, we haven’t really discussed the real query – what’s the role of one’s personality in connection with one’s mind and soul? And why are there personalities who prefer to practice religious beliefs & doctrines as compared to those that challenge them?

Let me quote the exact words used because they are key in explaining exactly what the topic is about – which is about personality. The exact words are “some people have personalities that seem to make it easier for them to operate successfully in your culture — i.e. follow rules and religious doctrine while others are challenging rules and not accepting of structures that govern and make the rules.” Do you know of any personalities who are examples of the first group of people mentioned? Let’s call them the Easy Followers.

Um…

Never mind. It doesn’t matter. How about the other group of people? Let’s call them Challengers.

Yeah. Neale and his friends, I guess.

Are you one of Neale’s friends?

I like to think so.

He does too. So do you call yourself one of The Challengers?

Like yeah.

Have you always had a personality that is a trait of being a challenger?

Nope. I’ve only just recently become a challenger. Like about 5 years ago. That was when I realised my life purpose. Before that, I would have called myself an Easy Follower because at that time I was operating by following rules and religious doctrines.

You forgot the word “successfully” in there somewhere – operating successfully by following rules.

I don’t think so.

Fair enough. So to get back to the query: What role does personality play in being Easy Followers or in being Challengers?

I’m not sure. But I think one can already deduce by what we call each group. Which I think is not very nice of us to do so.

Do what, dear?

You know, call people names by their personalities.

What do you think the names mean?

One name may mean that the personality of the person prefers to follow rules because it’s easier – easy life. While the other is not so easy – a challenging life.

Don’t you consider yourself one of the Challengers?

Yes.

Is your life challenging at the moment?

At this very moment, yes! This conversation we’re having is really tough! I’m afraid of offending someone.

You, afraid?

Always.

But tough?

I try.

Would you consider the role of your personality as being afraid and being tough when it concerns the “mechanics of the mind” and the “system of the soul”?

I suppose so. Being afraid is of the mind. Being tough is of the soul. Afraid and tough – that’s an odd personality combination, though.

Not really. Love and fear go hand in hand in your world.

For now.

Yes, dear. For now.

How Did We Ever Survive Without Mobile Phones?

mobilephone_artistic2

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!
