The other day in a conversation with my mom, she asked me how I felt about the Germanwings depressed co pilot who had deliberately crashed the airplane with all the passengers onboard into the Alps.
I normally pay little attention to current affairs as presented by the media.
The reason for this is that without the perspective of a higher vision, current events seem to happen randomly, resulting in a belief that the world is a dangerous place, and that disaster can and does strike at any moment.
But this is not true at all.
In fact, most of our world’s misery and woes come from exactly this unenlightened assumption.
Allow me to expand on this.
The Australian Aboriginal people have a charming practice which has run in their tradition for a very long time.
When a baby is born, before they even attend to cleaning it, the mother holds the baby in front of her eyes and looking into its eyes, she says:
“Welcome dear Spirit from Forever.
Know that you are LOVED and SUPPORTED on this journey!
I speak from behind my eyes, from the FOREVER part of me, to the part behind your eyes.”
This is a wonderful welcome into the world of human experience.
It also is an affirmation of the fact that the baby’s soul Spirit had journeyed from the realm of Eternity, to join the earthly realm in order to gain some practical experiences and become a player on the physical plane.
Now, in contrast to this, babies born in Western societies used to be smacked on their bottoms or backs, supposedly to help release any birth mucus and help them breathe better.
While this terrible practice of smacking babies and introducing them to pain at birth has been discontinued in hospitals, nobody has adopted the replacement practice of chanting the Truth to them, and nobody reminds them that they are welcomed, supported, loved and that they came to earth for a purposeful mission, to understand and transcend supposed limitations, and to spread joy.
If we practice raising kids who feel supported and loved and encouraged to remember who they TRULY ARE behind the dream of illusions, they will grow up to be strong, wise and loving adults.
The Germanwings co pilot was no more mentally ill than many millions of people who pop pills to alleviate the symptoms of their depression, a depression caused by an underlying belief that life on earth is meaningless; that you will grow old and become decrepit and ultimately die…and that you must protect your body since it is small and vulnerable, and that you are living in a world full of dangers and illnesses, at the mercy of catastrophes.
Most people on this earth holds this erroneous belief in randomness.
Even those who hold respectable jobs and seem to be functioning well outwardly, inwardly walk the earth feeling small and helpless and at the mercy of circumstances beyond their control.
The Truth is that we are raising kids and living ourselves with misconceptions about who we are.
We do not remember that we are loved, supported and HOLY children of God, that we are All powerful Co-Creators of the Universe and Masters of our destiny.
Allow me to remind you… And my hope is that these words you read will hopefully awaken a part of you that KNOWS this to be true…
You are responsible for what You see.
You choose the feelings You experience, and You decide upon the goals You would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to you, you ask for, and receive as you have asked.
Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is done to you.
Acknowledge but that you have been mistaken, and ALL effects of your mistakes will disappear.
This means that your sickness will evaporate, your poverty will be no more, your pain will have no hold upon your heart.
It is impossible that YOU, the Son of God, will be merely driven by events outside yourself.
It is impossible that events that happen to you were not your choice.
Your power of decision IS the determiner of EVERY situation in which you seem to find yourself by chance or accident.
No accident, no chance is possible within the universe as God created it…. And outside of it, there is nothing.
Sickness is not an accident.
Like all defenses, it is an insane device for self-deception.
And like all the rest, its purpose is to hide reality, attack it, change it, render it inept, distort it, twist it, or reduce it to a little pile of unassembled parts.
No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision.
No one suffers pain except when his choice elects this state for him.
No one can grieve or fear, nor think herself sick, unless these are the outcomes that she wants.
And…..NO ONE DIES WITHOUT HER CONSENT.
Remember this….no one dies without his own consent.
Nothing occurs but represents your wishes, and nothing is omitted that you choose.
It is impossible that anything should come to you unbidden by yourself.
Even in this world, it is YOU who rule your destiny.
What happens is what you desire.
What does not occur is what you do not want to happen.
This must you accept.
For thus you will be led past this world to where your TRUE and holy Self abides with them and Him Who has created You.
The secret of your freedom from this world of illusions is but this: that you are doing this unto yourself.
No matter what the form of the attack, this still is true.
Whoever takes the role of enemy and of attacker, still is this the truth.
Whatever seems to be the cause of any pain and suffering you feel, this is still true.
For you would not react at all to figures in a dream if you knew that you were dreaming.
Let them be as hateful and as vicious as they may, they could have no effect on you UNLESS….. you failed to recognize it is YOUR DREAM….
Remember this….no one dies without his or her own consent, and chance plays NO PART in God’s plan.
