I Intend To Do and Say The Right Thing at The Right Time.
All of This I Intend for My Highest Good...and the Highest Good of All"
Simply put, our FEELINGS tell us if we are on the right track for us...or not. Note I said: "for us." There are always those who would tell us differently.
There are those who would tell us not to trust our own feelings, our own intuition, our own choices...because they say: 'you can't trust yourselves!'... Well...according to them maybe.
We have complicated our lives so badly that its no wonder we get stressed out... All the great teachers, and that includes Jesus and Buddha, told us to be in the NOW. If you haven't read Eckhardt Tolle's book "The Power of Now" ...you should. Oops...pardone' the word 'should.'
If we SLOW DOWN enough, stop giving the Past power over us, stop projecting fear into the future...and determine to trust the Inner Guidance that IS THERE for us... we can learn to rely on the Divine within us: by following our true feelings. We KNOW...we cannot FOOL ourselves when what we are doing is NOT for our highest good or way of Feeling Good. We can talk over it, around it...and temporarily suppress it...but we still know.
Forget about 'the past.' Stop worrying about the future. Live in the present...the NOW...and Go with the Flow. Sure. Sometimes we will crash into boulders. Maybe we needed to get our own attention. It doesn't mean it's 'bad'...it just IS. Stop already with those miserably annoying labels of Good and Bad. And learn to trust your Feelings--not other people's ideas.
It takes practice. So what if we make some choices that turned out to be a bit muddled to big time disastrous... Life goes on. So do we. Seth knew exactly what he was saying when he said: "Stop taking life so seriously." Argue with that if you want to. Its anybody's free choice to be either as happy or as miserable as they choose. Yes. CHOOSE. Even in the midst of what we might call miserable situation -- some people know how to find joy...and peace.
The Pleiadians said, in response to a question from a workshop attendee: "If we could narrow down those things that we should focus on and Intend...what should they be?" Their answer was.
1) Joy, 2) Clarity, 3) Safety, 4( Harmony.
It covers everything. Yes. It does. Including love. You can take any three of those four intentions and they will always equal the 4th one.
Intention is a direction we set for ourselves. Not to follow anyone else's ideas...but where it is that WE want to journey. Eventually, as the greatest teachers have said..."you will throw away the 'rule books' and the 'how to' books when you realize it is ALL within you." ALL of it. Until then, choose the ones that make you Feel Good about yourselves...!! Not the ones that scare the hell outa you and constantly encourage self-judgment.
If one says: 'but, there is a lot more to it!'...please feel free to complicate it as much as you think you should. All of us tend to be drama queens...oh well, beats martydom and sainthood.
We would all be better off by following our own hearts and wish others well on their journeys. Just, as the Beatles said: "Let It Be." Don't worry if some condemn you or say 'you are wrong.' Condemnation and judgment may make one feel temporarily self-righteous and the Ego might do a little Whoopee Dance...but it will end...and the result will not make one truly Feel Good. We REALLY need to just focus on that image we see in the mirrow. THAT is the role we chose to play this go-round.
I love it that Seth said: "In the course of your lifetimes, You have done it all" ...We have done it ALL in our many, many reincarnations. That alone should keep us from pointing fingers, eh? Actually, we are not here to 'save the world' ... we are here to expand and evolve ourselves, thereby being a benefit to All That Is.
Abe has told us that sometimes people ask "Aren't I being self-centered and selfish thinking only about myself!" ... but I think most of us realize that by taking care of ourselves first and foremost and focusing on our OWN growth, we are actually giving the MOST to others... It doesn't mean 'we don't care and we never help' others...If one thinks it DOES mean that ... one might have to ask oneself "Why do I think that?" That kind of self-questioning could lead one on a very interesting and self-revealing journey.
Don Miguel Ruiz's very popular "The Four Agreements" fits in here very well. The Agreements are: 1) Be Impeccable With Your Word; 2) Don't Take Anything Personally; 3) Never Make Assumptions; and 4) Always Do Your Best. ... Now...don't use those ideas as clubs to hammer yourself over the head with into making you "Good!!" Bottom line its about honoring yourself.
Just imagine people actually BELIEVING they are good. This was John Lennon's intent when he wrote my favorite song: "Imagine." We DO end up seeing what we -really-believe in.
Wanting, Visualizing, and Intending to Be in the Right Place at the Right Time, Saying and Doing the Right Thing at the Right Time...for one's own Highest Good which INCLUDES the Highest Good of all....
It really doesn't have to be any more complicated than that...
As we 'go within' when we meditate...we know exactly where to find that Peace That Passes All Understanding... It's there. Always has been. Always will be.
