My message from The Universe today: "How is it that with so many brilliant beings on your planet, so few recognize that when one's life encounters turbulence, choppy waters, or setbacks, it's always a sign that things are about to get wildly better than they've ever been before?"

Why have you stopped searching for Truth?
Why do you simply ride the high horse of your self-righteousness
that you are protecting another "victim"
from an "assailant"
that is conjured from the fears of her own distorted experience?
That she is so terrorized from her own fears
of not surviving
of having her illusions ripped away
of facing her failures
and the condemnation of expectations she cannot meet
That she strikes out at others
spreading lies and falsehoods
so her own fears and failures are not exposed
You are not helping
You are not rescuing or protecting
You are perpetuating the violence
You are the instrument of injustice
With your assumptions and extortions
You send your storm troopers to enforce the lies
Causing more and more damage
based on the lies and fears of one
so terrorized by her own failures
that she clings with desperate fingers to the smothering denial of her addictions
to the false assumption
that it matters not
who she destroys
even her own child
As long as the truth is not uncovered
Where is Truth?
You have denied her
You have tried to smother her voice
Yet she is there
You have only to find your courage and look for her

If you are seeing hypocrisy,
then you are likely looking for hypocrisy
through the lens of your experience
Just as if you see an opportunity to work together
then you are likely looking for that opportunity
to join with others to improve this life
Since I have experienced lies, abuse, betrayal and violent deaths
The lens through which I view life is distorted by these experiences
To see opportunities for a different life, I must remove these distortions--
take off the glasses
clean the lenses
or whatever metaphor you wish to use
Rewind the tape of my experiences
And start with a clean, fresh tape
Is this possible?
I'm hopeful it is
For if not, we are condemned to struggle and disappointment and injustice
And I am so weary of those illusions
I want to see Truth and Beauty and Integrity
Wisdom and Grace
To deeply feel the knowing of the Universe
that all experiences are an opportunity
to see life in a different way
To clear off the fog of abuse and struggle
And let the rays of hope and beauty shine through
To not be mired in the sewage of fear
so deeply it seems we will never be free of it
To know we can scrape the poo off the shoes of our soul
LOL at the purple prose
Not to take ourselves so seriously
Not to overdramatize or chew constantly on angst
But to find the humor
of living life without the lenses of distortion
To see clearly with the eyes of our true being
that of love and beauty and opportunity

What if I look inside me
what if there are beautiful colors and patterns
that don't seem of importance in this world
that aren't needed for survival
perhaps they are needed more than ever
Perhaps they can call forth the beautiful kind of world I'm longing for
can calm the chaos and harsh words that seem to have descended upon us
like a smothering, toxic fog
that is choking the life out of everything it touches

Like a number of my friends, I feel the need for a break from the waves of negative emotions that have been generated over the last months.
However, I want to deal with these negative energies, not just cover them up or avoid them or stuff them down so they boil to the surface again and again. I want to dissipate this ugliness.
I listened to some of my favorite self-help gurus about forgiveness and compassion and focusing on the positive. All good intentions, but still a challenge for me. My overdeveloped sense of justice says people should not lie or bully or threaten or be greedy or, or, or...
As has been happening, mornings are my creative brainstorming time with my spirit guides. This morning, what developed was a way to move my focus from the negative to the positive.
If someone lies, I simply let their image dissolve to the word "Lies." Then I replace that word with its opposite. In this case, Truth. For a few moments, I allow the emotions and feelings of Truth to pour into me, filling me and immersing me. I imagine a world where there is only Truth.
I may need to do this repeatedly to retrain the habits of my brain, but it's a quick process to move my mind from negative to positive thoughts and emotions.
I'm also coming up with a list of opposites so my brain can easily substitute a negative emotion with its opposite. For instance:
Lies -- Truth
Threats -- Respect
Greed -- Generosity
Hatred -- Love
Violence -- Peace
For me, this process is simple, fast, and effective. I like it!
