The Fellowship of Awakening- March 5, 2014

Teachers of God,

We are standing above the 50 Cornerstones of this practice!! We are about to begin the process of putting the remaining pieces of our foundation together. We are learning the laws of Truth an it is well. A Good Time to be Alive! I know the review has been good for you. Let's look at the next few lessons.

61. I am the Light of the World.

62. Forgiveness is my function as the Light of the World.

63. The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

64. Let me not forget my function.

65. My function is the one God gave me.

All that I trust is Light. The Light I know is me. I am that Light that illuminates the world. I Am the Light of my world. I let go of thoughts that do not serve the entirety of my being. I am whole and complete and see others in that way. I have a calmness and peace that others recognize. I am unwavering in my pursuit of Peace.

I express the Peace within because it brings me joy. I have a purpose in this sensual world to bring the light of understanding and co-existence. I am the Peace that others seek. I am ever diligent to my role in this time and place. I am the personification of Truth, Justice and the Peaceful Way. My place in the Universe is to be that place; that sensual understanding of awareness that is Peace.

This week we'll be looking at another section of Chapter 7: The Gifts of the Kingdom. Last week we talked about it's Reality. This week we'll talk about the Totality of the Kingdom. It's about us. The us that we experience when we are with others. Are we constantly in conflict with others? How do we see other people and and how in the world are we supposed to trust anyone? What happens to us when our friends or family go crazy? What happens when we go crazy and someone comes along to pick up our pieces.? What are we seeking from others? What in the world could we possibly offer another person? Well it's easier than you might think. We are wired for this type of thing. Everything we see is a reflection of ourselves, right? So what could be the problem? Others show us what we think about ourselves.

Explanation of Images:

Are others taking from us? How do we see the people in our lives? What happens when someone asks something of you? Often we get irritated and impatient with others when they are asking for our gifts. Sometimes we present ourselves as asking permission of others for our well being. Approve of me, please. Like me, please. If we want to see others as our collaborators, then we have to choose to interact with them differently. Our fellow living beings are craving to be seen, just like we are. We want to be seen as the amazing unique creations and yet to know this in our souls we need to become aware of the unique and inspiring quality every single encounter. Do we honor and bless all those that cross our path? All of those around us are required for our wholeness, you know. Beggars we need not be, integrity and honor is how we can walk in the world and express that understanding in every sacred moment.
