Master Within and this Will Manifest in the Outer.
Message from Ascended Master Buddha.
Perhaps the most confusing lesson for many with regards to how to make the world a better place is this desire to try to first change things in the world around us.
We try and try to change our environment and we find ourselves hitting up against walls.
We rail against injustice when we see others perpetrate atrocities and we become angry and hateful in the process.
Do you see the madness in this approach?
When you fight hate with hate, you merely increase the hate in the world.
You are doing the opposite of what you want to do - you make the world a worse place.
Instead, may I offer a piece of practical advice to get out of this trap?
The first place to make better in the world is within you.
Fight the hatred within you.
Fight the anger within you.
Fight the jealousy and envy and anxiety and fear within you.
When you conquer these things within then you will find peace within you.
You can then show others how to do the same thing.
They will, in turn, help others and you will see the world change.
How to fight those things within you?
Surrender them to the Creator.
Ask the Creator to take it away from you when it rises up within you.
It shall be done.
Change within and you shall see it manifest outside of you.
Ascended Master Gautama Buddha
Many times we hear the saying "Follow your heart and you can't go wrong." It would be nice to agree with the statement but we humans have two hearts that send us information. Unfortunately, it can be hard to discern between the two.
We have what is called the lower heart which is where our bodily desires reside. Through this heart we express our addictions and desires that stem from fear. Following this heart impulse can lead one to misery and strife.
We also have what is call a higher heart which is where our Divine desires reside. When we follow these desires we find ourselves in a place of grace, joy and happiness.
Both heart impulses can feel right in the moment. Let us say that we really like another person and our heart is telling us to be with this person. We will often follow that impulse and wonder later why the relationship ended in such acrimony.
Do you wish to learn how to discern the difference between the higher heart desire and the lower heart desire? Keep reading and I will tell you the simplest way to discern which heart is talking to you at any one moment in time.
I will provide an example of how the lower heart can interfere with your life. Let us say that you have always had a passion for wanting to heal others. You have been attracted to the healing hearts throughout your life and you find yourself presently engaged as a physical therapist. You find this work rewarding and the healing that it brings to your patients brings joy into your heart.
At the same time you dream of starting your own company that manages groups of physical therapists. You reckon that having such a company will be able to multiply your healing effect to more and more people while at the same time provide you with the satisfaction of being a business owner. This excites you and enthuses you.
Being one that likes to listen from the heart. You feel for an answer as to whether or not this is the right path for you. You feel the excitement of the opportunity and you conclude that, yes, it is the right choice. What is happening here, however is that your lower heart is becoming excited about being a successful businessman. While there is nothing wrong with being a successful business man, the attachment or desire to become one can lead to misery and choices that lead to calamity. The lower heart was creating the feeling of excitement, the feeling of, "go for it!"
Allow me to use this example to illustrate how to really discern if this heart decision was one from the high heart or the low heart.
Follow these steps.
Step one, get into a relaxed state by sitting in a quiet room with dim lighting. sit in a comfortable chair or lay down on a bed. Close your eyes. Breath in deeply and hold the breath for a few seconds then let the breath flow out and relax. Repeat this 5 times.
Step two: Ask the following to your Higher Consciousness, "Higher Consciousness, is starting this business venture for the highest good of all?"
Step three: Feel the response from the heart. If the response is muted or not there at all then you know your answer is, "No." If the response feels like Joy and Happiness then you know that the answer is, Yes."
Follow this simple three step strategy and you will be less likely to be led astray by lower heart desires.
You, of course, have a choice in life.
If you wish you may disregard this advice.
In either path , I wish you well on your journey!
Enjoy Life without Addiction.
Message from Ascended Master Buddha.
The true key to life is to enjoy every moment without being addicted to any person, place, thing, thought or action.
When we are addicted we crave the object of our addiction. This craving is what creates the suffering we see in life. When we crave sleep, for example, we become angry when we can't. When we crave a football game, we become angry when we miss all or part of it. When we crave to be right in a conversation, we explode into anger when we are proven incorrect.
This list can go on and on. Craving produces suffering for you and others around you.
The key here is to enjoy your sleep or your football game or your debate without craving it. When you are detached from it, then you don't create suffering if you happen to not receive the sleep or the football game or the winning of a debate. You have no emotional reaction other than the feeling of certainty that another opportunity will occur.
Once you liberate yourself from craving, your mind, body and soul becomes peaceful and at rest. You will have a more pleasant day that will allow you truly feel more happiness and joy in your life because you won't be frowning and upset.
Would you like more happiness? Allow me to provide practical advise:
When you feel upset or anxious because you are not getting what you want, then realize that you have an addiction. Also realize that addictions are hard to remove without help and that our Creator can remove them for you.
Allow the Creator into your process to remove your addiction by identifying the addiction and asking Creator to remove the addiction from you forever. Thank the creator and then note how you will no longer feel anxious or angry when the former object of addiction is not available.
This is a sign that your addiction has been taken away.
Have faith that this can be done and it shall be done.
Who Made You The Opinion Maker?
Message From Ascended Master Siddhārtha Gautama.
Many of us on Earth have many opinions about everything under the sun. Many of us are not shy about expressing our opinions either. We are quick to jump into debates about what is best or not best and the ramifications of not choosing the position that we like.
Opinion makers have a tough time, however. Opinions are easy to create so the opinion maker who is attached to their opinions is constantly defending their position with many other opinions. We who become attached are then taken for a wild ride as we go from one argument to the next defending words and ideas against other words and ideas.
We become so attached that the clash of opinions start to make us worry. They can also make us mad. In the process we can develop bitterness. Bitterness then leads to diseases such high blood pressure and heart problems. Soon our health deteriorates and the rest of our life can quickly follow into disfunction all because we value our attachments to our opinions.
My practical advice to you is to throw out your opinions. When others ask what your opinion is of something, simply say, "I need to think about it more before I have an opinion." Afterwards, don't think about the topic and you will never have an opinion of it.
Being without opinions will soon make you realize that life doesn't stop. Indeed, life without opinions is a life full of options waiting to be explored.
Cut the cords to opinions and become happy!
