To Give

ara Giving-Antioch

How many times have you wondered why on earth you are here, bumping around on this plane of existence?  Hazarding a guess, I would say we all have wondered that a time or two.

I recently came across an old journal of mine.  It was dedicated to my thoughts, feelings and any messaging the Council of 12 would deign to offer on the topics I wrote about.  Like anyone else I have had my share of dark nights of the soul and in one particular deeply troubled time I questioned why I was here at all.  Astoundingly enough, the answer was offered up in the writing I am going to share with you.  I didn’t realize it at the time as my sole focus was on what I didn’t have, what wasn’t working, and what seemed totally elusive to me. It is rather evident I was still on the first leg of my spiritual journey.

To Give

What have I accomplished

In this precious moment in time

A flash of pure adventure

In a life that I call mine

I have learned about the struggle

I seem to live it every day

My spirit soars and beckons

As it knows another way

I keep following, lost and anxious

I want so to do this right

To learn and grow and impact

Without the fear and fight

Letting go of what I’m living

As in struggle, fear and woe

Leaves me lost and wandering

In a ‘me’ I do not know

To leave a life unheeded

To go before I’ve lived

Is such a waste of reverence

When I have so much left to give

 

Do you see the answer?

Life is all about what you can give and loving everything unconditionally as you do so.  Giving ceases to have real meaning if you feel deflated, disappointed or resentful after having done so.  It is indicative of giving without purest intent. To give simply because that is what you are here to do is an act of unconditional love.

When the time comes for us to withdraw our focus from this plane of existence we will not be thinking of how much money we made, who is going to quarrel over it, how many cars you owned or how much you suffered.  It will be about how much you gave that will ultimately represent what your life stood for—how many were impacted, how loving you were and always, always how much more you wished you could give if you had more time.

Life is a reverent gift.  It is a force of love that causes us to breathe and to pulse love from the moment of first breath.  It is a gift we are expected to give.  It is not about what we managed to get, how we can get more and how long can we keep it and certainly not about who got more than you did.

As I read my words from so many years ago I had to smile.  Even in my darkest hour the assistance from the unseen was making itself known.  We are all here to give to each other what we can.  Each of us came to this life with certain abilities.  Something no one else can do quite like you can.  Our task is to ferret out what those abilities are, commit to using them and to be of service to others.  In other words, we are here to give to others in our own unique way.

Giving is living.

Living Backwards

project03 template

The Council of 12 has always said we all live backwards.  We grieve the loss of a loved one when they transition when in essence they are retreating back into their full remembering.  We are joyful at the birth of a child when at a soul level that new, shiny being has just entered into their forgetfulness that will be fraught with challenges.  We look externally for love without realizing the only one who can love us as we know we should be loved is ourselves.

According to the Council of 12:  “You are already that which you seek.  You are already that which you wish to remember and know.  You are already that in all ways, at all times, all at once.  You are the universe unfolding deliberately by your every thought, every word, every deed. You always have been.  You always will be.  You have forgotten this.”

Just for today….try reversing your perspectives on all things.  It is there you will find clarity, solutions and your authentic power.  It is one thing to hear different concepts but one needs to try them on to see how they fit.  As the Council of 12 says:  “Anyone can read a book and ‘know’ something.  In order for knowledge to transmute to wisdom it must be acted upon.  It is the experience that breeds wisdom.”

Are you ready to give it a go?  I would love to hear what you reversed and the results!  Please leave your comments.  You never know how much your participation can inspire and uplift others. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

Just for today….remind yourself that you are a limitless field of pure potentiality. Your thoughts and feelings are the trigger of your creations. Everything is possible. Deliberately point your emotional compass and unleash your power. There is nothing grander than living powerfully, loving endlessly and creating effortlessly.

Life

Life doesn’t throw curves at you nor does it hand you lemons. Life isn’t about being dealt a certain hand of cards. Life doesn’t put obstacles in your way and certainly doesn’t create bumps on the road. When you begin to realize that everything that comes your way is there specifically because you ‘thought/felt it into being’ then your life will miraculously change–because you will think/feel differently. It has always been this way. You are in charge. When you know it you will then live it. You will Live Life instead of life living you.
