Well beloveds, it's a brand new month! For this body, it is the very last month of the 50's before it turns 60 on July 1, starting my best decade ever so far as my fabulous Louise taught me to KNOW. You know, Louise is the one exception in my life of teachers who stayed with Truth all the way through. Every one of my other living spiritual teachers at some point veered away from Truth and Principle, which is one of the main reasons I always teach from the dead authors. None of the living ones kept to the Path - they all got drawn back to the war path of darkness and fighting on one level or other. Every single one. No blame or shame - it's just the way of it. War is very attractive on a war planet.
And so as I prepare to enter this new decade, I am recommitting yet again to standing still and seeing the Salvation of the Lord in my life, whether anyone comes along or not. Poor Moses did not get to enter the Promised Land simply because he let the people irritate him til he got off his highlighted route, which made him too vibrationally different to ENTER. He lost his faith and focused on the people instead of God. Every time he turned his back for a minute the people would go into fear and fall under the spell of the world again. Around here that means turning to conspiracy theories, social activism (which is just anger and fear), tarot cards, psychics, digging up the past, studying the separation, activating victim consciousness, nursing grudges and wounds and hurt feelings, taking everything personally, arguing for limitations and about a zillion other things that go waaaaay off the highlighted route. As for me and my house, I am IN the Promised Land!
So many of the New Thought spiritual teachers end up like Judas, trying to force Jesus' hand into SOCIAL ACTIVISM and #resisting evil. He wanted Jesus to start a #jewishlivesmatter movement to liberate them. But Jesus told them all that their bondage was their Consciousness - to LOVE their oppressors if they wanted to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. This was of course rejected then as it is now. Judas thought if he turned Jesus over, He would finally FIGHT in order to DEFEND and save Himself. Just shows how little attention Judas was paying all along. He was a social justice warrior, not a Mystic. And we see how he ended up. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Cause and effect.
I watched all my spiritual teachers (except Louise) begin using GUILT to manipulate people into doing what THEY are now doing - using works of the flesh to fight instead of standing in Truth. In the end, it just proves they never really believed to begin with. It was all just wishing and hoping - which is why there is so little actual healing in New Thought anymore. They are mostly social services for lonely people who have no interest in letting go of their story. Which is why this Lodge is such an oasis in the desert. I lost hundreds of people in 2006 when I became the Boot Camp Sargent and made a mandatory reading list in order to attend classes/lectures. BEST thing I ever did. There were many many dead branches bearing ZERO fruit. SO boring. Darkness and fear are SO FUCKING BORING and have been done to death.
That was followed by a few years of imploring people, "HELP ME HELP YOU!" And then the folly and depressing nature of THAT became clear to me. And NOW, Jesus is like a fabulous broken record which keeps saying to me, "Teach My Course" and "LET GO JACOB, LET IT ALL GO." And that is the fabulous magic of it all. When I stand still and follow Directions, miracles and magic follow. I don't make my plans - I follow The Plan as it is given me. I'm standing still and STUDYING the LIGHT now. I continue to rise above the battlefield higher and higher, which has a lot to do with further leaving social media. I unfollowed about 50 groups on Facebook alone over the past 48 hours and now have in my clickstream ONLY what is vibrating HIGH.
And so, THIS has actually been the best year of my life so far!! That may sound insane to the muggles who are sure that this decade already sucks ass and is a nightmare. But that is because they have no Foundation. The rains and storms come and they are washed away like the sand they built on. It's not luck or happenstance. It's a choice - as everything is. Choose carefully possums. It could be the best month of your life so far - or not. Remember, our hashtag around here is #thisshitworks
