Be - Not Do
Ascended Master Hilarion
Those who wish to become closer to our Creator decide to embark upon a self improvement that consists of much action.
This is quite understandable. Many on the planet are waking up and wishing to live with a healthy mind, healthy emotions and with a healthy body. All three aspects, when healed, propel you towards the Creator and towards your Divine Purpose here on Earth. Look around you and see how many are changing their diets, changing their exercise, changing the way they react emotionally to events in their environment.
To witness this from the realm of Shambala is truly a delight and a humbling experience. You are awakening as a global consciousness.
For those who are feeling the need for change, the temptation is to want to change all at once and be done with it. The impulse here is to do and do and do. This forcing of change, however, can lead to disillusionment and defeat - not to mention exhaustion from always doing!
So here in the heavenly realms, we suggest that you take it easy and focus upon one doing at a time. For example if you are feeling the impulse to quit caffeine, then just focus on quitting caffeine instead of trying to both quit caffeine and launch a new yoga routine at the same time. Give yourself space to breathe. Master the quitting of the caffeine then move onto mastering the new yoga routine. During the mastering of new habit, just be and enjoy the moment in a relaxed manner.
It is an old saying but it is worth repeating: "Stop and smell the roses."
From Ascended Master Hilarion on 5.27.17.
Fear can afflict us in a way that cripples our daily lives and robs us of the simple joy of existence. The fear that I am specifically addressing today is the fear of being alone. Many of us have this fear while living on Earth because the illusion of separateness from our Creator is so strong that we fear if we are alone that we will shrivel up and turn to dust.
I am here to tell you that this is an illusion and the help of our Creator is just a whisper away.
This fear of being alone manifests itself as a fear of not wanting to offend anyone, of wanting to serve people so that we are liked by those people. If the ones who are close to us receive this type of service based upon fear, the opposite usually develops - instead of liking us these who are being served out of fear will grow to hate us because they see that we are fearful.
This service out of fear helps no one. Instead, serve out of Love. But how can one shift from fear to love? That is the challenge for most! We are so fearful that we are afraid to even try. The advice here is to start with only one person - yourself. In this way we are in no danger of losing friends and family with our sudden changes.
Are you willing to practice on yourself this Service out of Love?
To practice Service out of Love is to first genuinely Love. Love's meaning is actually the same as acceptance. So the first step in this experiment is to simply accept yourself as you are. Try this every morning: Look at yourself in the mirror. Look at all that you consider flaws. Look at the wrinkles and the bumps and the features of your face and body. No breath in deep and say to yourself, "I accept my body just the way it is." Breath out in a relaxed manner and let your body go limp. This should feel good. Say to your reflection with a smile, "I love and accept me." Repeat this five times. Why five? This is the number that represents our Inner Divinity. Inside that body that you are now accepting is a Divine Soul that came directly from the Creator.
You see, we are a part of the Creator and we were created to experience life in a state of joy and happiness. The first step towards getting back to joy and happiness is to simply accept yourself as you are.
I leave you now with these words in hopes that they help you in some way to allow you to receive our Creator's Love, Acceptance, and Joy in your life.
