We Are All Pretenders

9 August 2015 Sunday

…Even if it’s just pretend.

You mean pretend to forgive?

Why not? All of you are always pretending anyway. Every minute, every second, every breath you take, you are pretending. All of you are always living within rules and regulations. All of you are living within the protocol what some of you have called “polite society.” You are pretending even when what you are thinking of is quite different. All of you are suppressing your true feelings all the time.

But if we show our true feelings, like anger, it’ll only cause trouble.

Trouble occurs when the other person, let’s say John, takes to heart the anger of, let’s say Mary. Besides, why did Mary get angry in the first place? Probably because she took to heart what John said or did. And on and on it goes. The vicious circle never stops as long as someone does not stop taking to heart the transgression of the other.

That’s what I mean. So John and Mary are not pretending. They showed their true feelings by getting angry with each other. That’s where trouble starts and may become worse until they grow apart and eventually part ways. On the other hand, if they ignored their feelings, as in pretend it isn’t there or suppress their feelings, then the situation will be…Well, peaceful, isn’t it? So my question is – what’s wrong with pretending?

I did not say pretending is wrong. I Am merely observing what all of you are creating. You have created a world where everyone is pretending instead of showing their true feelings.

But it will cause trouble!

It will only cause trouble when there is the intent to hurt. All of you get angry for the purpose of revenge. To revenge the transgression that you assume has been done unto you. There is no such thing as transgressions if you believe that the purpose of such a violation is for you to be able to envision the greatest and grandest version you imagine yourself to be. And that is to be God. God does not get angry. God does not seek revenge. If Mary chose the highest choice of not getting angry and not seeking revenge by getting angry, then the situation would not have gone to the next level (which, by the way, is a lower level when it concerns your evolution as a human race) of causing more of a rift in the relationship. The situation would have remained neutral. John also has a choice, seeking revenge by getting angry or choosing not to be angry. But if he chooses the highest choice of being God, no anger and no revenge, then he and Mary would have a chance to work out the rift peacefully. And this is not pretending. The soul never pretends. The soul is the truth. When a relationship is soul-based, the truth will always win over any rift in a relationship. I will not say there will never be any rifts because there will always be rifts. That is fear at work in order for you to know the opposite of fear, which is joy. One cannot exist without the other.

…I will never, ever get irritated with you, God. You know that. I love you.

I know, child. I love you too. But when you get irritated, or frustrated, or angry with yourself, you are doing the same to Me. You are doing the same to God. And if you are doing the same with another, then you are doing the same to God. I Am you, you are Me. As I Am another. All of you are God.

I know. I’m sorry when I get angry or frustrated or fed up with myself. Or another.

You do not have to apologize to Me, child. Since I cannot be hurt or damaged in any way, then there is nothing you will ever be sorry for. Love is never having to say you’re sorry.

Yeah. You’re so wonderful that way!

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. 

We Are iGen

Someone recommended I should read an article about how this generation is being ruined by our smartphones.

The article described how different it was generations before when we met face to face to socialise. Instead, this generation is staying home more and socialising via the smartphone most of the time.

The article, which is a long read with statistics (midway…yawn…scroll…scroll…scroll), concluded that this generation is simply going south till kingdom come.

Here’s my take: Remember when micro mini skirts were the rage? (“The indecency of it all! This generation will burn in hell!”) That didn’t last. If I recall correctly, maxis were the next fad. We’re fickle that way.

What I’m trying to say is, we’ve always survived every generation’s idiosyncrasies.

Remember when Mum & Dad use to say, “You’re always out!”

Now they’re saying, “You really should go out.”

We are what we create.  We’re smarter than we think. That’s why we will survive.

And by the way, the article said, apparently this smartphone generation’s decline began after 2012. Hm…my favourite year.
