A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you..”

The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED… I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.

Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.

By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however.

He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.

Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.

Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”

All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed – Jim told him the story.

The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!

His name is Jim!” Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.

“How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.

Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.

All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!”

* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust

* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends

* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness

* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment

* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective

* If you plant hard work, you will reap success

* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation

* If you plant faith in God, you will reap a harvest

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

Wondering whether you’re spiritual or not? You’re probably confusing the signs! Here are a few commonly misread signs that say you’re more spiritual than you think!

Can you be spiritual if you’re dozing off during the seminars at the church, uninterested in the scriptures, and constantly thinking about worldly matters?

Do you really have to be disconnected with the world in order to connect with the absolute reality of life and religion? More importantly, is religion and spirituality mutually exclusive or inseparable?

These are just some of the questions most people seem to ask at some point in their lives.

The worst part is that they usually end up concluding they’re not spiritual and will therefore not even try to get there. In reality, however, it’s the little things that define your state of spirituality.

And, when you put the pieces together, you’ll realize you’re possibly more spiritual than you think!

For the most part, religiousness has little to do with spirituality. Religion implies adherence to the ordained principles of life. Spirituality, on the other hand, refers to a state of enlightenment and consciousness, being able to see beyond materialistic boundaries.

You can be spiritual without being religious, and this is an observation being increasingly accepted across most intellectual groups.

Here are a few “little things” you should keep an eye out for while evaluating your spirituality. You might end up scoring higher on the scale than you expected!

7. Being Able To Register Infinities

Ever wondered how the universe seems to be in perfect harmony with other elements? Have you ever gazed at the stars, visualizing the billion galaxies that seem to co-exist without knowing about each other?

Do you think about the infinities, recognizing the presence of something much bigger and better than the humans that trod this earth?

If you have, you’re more spiritual than you think. You’re able to see beyond materialistic limits. Everyone isn’t as gifted as you!

6. Channelizing Positive Energies

Thinking positive makes you feel positive, channelizing happiness into your aura. If you can control your emotions and connect with the spirits of the universe, resonating positive energies all around you, you’re more spiritual than you think.

Instead of whining about the evils, you’ll focus more on being the change agent. You know you can make this world a better place, so you start by being better yourself. The mere realization about this reality makes you more spiritual than most others. Because you’re not blaming it on others; you’re taking responsibility for your fair share of evil!

On a similar note, if you’re channeling positive energies through your aura, you’ll keep away from negativities and toxic people. For whatever reason, you’ll simply not be able to get along with them! You’re determined to serve your role as the agent of positivity and happiness!

5. Philanthropic Inclinations

You don’t need to be the person who gives all and keeps little (or nothing) for the self. As mentioned previously, it’s the little things that count.

If you’re helping one other individual at a time, even if it belongs to another species, you have what it takes to connect with your soul and the spirits of the universe. You’re closer to your destination. You can register the presence of beings other than the human race, and you’re willing to help them. It goes a long way to say about your spiritual apex.

4. Nature Inspires

There’s nothing like revisiting your roots, experiencing nature in its original shape. If the natural landscapes inspire you, or you seem to have a built-in passion for travelling and discovering the wonders of nature, you’re closer to self-actualization.

You use the natural balance to unwind, letting go of negative energies and replacing these with freshness, optimism and dedication. When you’re closer to nature, you’re closer to your spirit and soul!

3. You Choose to Forgive and Forget

Cherishing negative energies and emotions in the form of bad memories and resentment take you away from your spiritual roots. You know this, so you choose to forgive and forget not because the wrong-doer deserves it, but because you don’t deserve to be held up in the net of negativity.

You feel easier, lighter, and better when you decide to forego. And you’ve realized this is how it is meant to be. If this is the case, then you’re definitely more spiritual than you think.

2. You Honor Life and Truth

Every life (even if it’s a bug) is sacred, and deserves to be honored. In the same way, every truth deserves to be respected. If you’re standing by your principles and values, you’re definitely more spiritual than you think!

1. You Don’t Harp About It!

As the wise people say, if you’re saying it, you’re most probably not it. Wise people don’t claim to be wise. Likewise, spiritual people don’t claim to be spiritual. It’s a pathway of constant self-discovery and realization. There is no end! If you’ve achieved it, you must’ve taken the wrong turn.

So if you think you’re not spiritual, you’re most probably closer to your destination than you think!

 

DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?

Posted March 2, 2016 By Mark
CebuanoDanskEnglishFrançaisDeutschPortuguêsРусскийEspañolУкраїнська

Each one of you wishes to exercise your free will and experience happiness. Your free will depends upon the knowledge you have of your own power. Your happiness depends upon the love that you give and receive.

Like all conscious races at this stage of progress, you may feel isolated on your planet. This impression gives you a certain view of your destiny. Yet you are at the brink of big upheavals that only a minority is aware of.

It is not our responsibility to modify your future without your choosing it. So consider this message as a worldwide referendum, and your answer as a ballot.

Neither your scientists nor your religious representatives speak knowledgeably about certain unexplained aerial and celestial events that mankind has witnessed for thousands of years.

To know the truth, one must face it without the filter of one’s beliefs or dogmas, however respectable
they may be.

A growing number of anonymous researchers of yours are exploring new paths of knowledge and are getting very close to reality. Today, your civilization is flooded with an ocean of information of which only a tiny part, the less upsetting one, is notably distributed.

Bear in mind that what in your history seemed ridiculous or improbable has often become possible, then realized — in particular in the last fifty years.

Be aware that the future will be even more surprising. You will discover the worst as well as the best.

Many of those who study our appearances point to lights in the night, but without lighting the way. Often they think in terms of objects when it is all about conscious beings.

Who are we?

Like billions of others in this galaxy, we are conscious creatures that some call “extraterrestrials,” even though the reality is subtler. There is no fundamental difference between you and us, save for having experienced certain stages of evolution.

As with any other organized society, a hierarchy exists in our internal relationships. Ours, however, is based upon the wisdom of several races. It is with the approval of this hierarchy that we turn to you.

Like most of you, we are in quest of the Supreme “Being” or “State of Being.”

Therefore we are not gods or lesser gods but virtually your equals in the Cosmic Brotherhood. Physically we are somewhat different from you but most of us are humanoid-shaped.

We are not mere observations; we are consciousnesses just like you. Our existence is a reality, but the majority of you do not perceive it yet because we remain invisible to your senses and instruments most of the time.

We wish to fill this void at this moment in your history. We made this collective decision on our side, but this is not enough — we need yours as well.

Through this message you can become the decision-makers. You, personally. We have no human representative on Earth who could guide your decision.

Why aren’t we visible?

At certain stages of evolution, cosmic “humanities” discover certain scientific principles regarding matter. Structured dematerialization and materialization are among them.

Your humanity has achieved this in a few laboratories, in close collaboration with other extraterrestrial creatures — at the cost of hazardous compromises that remain purposely hidden from you by some of your representatives.

In addition to the aerial or space-based objects or phenomena known to your scientific community as physical “UFOs,” there are essentially multidimensional manufactured spaceships that possess these expanded capacities.

Many human beings have been in visual, auditory, tactile or psychic contact with such ships — some of which, it should be noted with caution, are under the influence of hidden powers that govern you, which we often term “the third party.”

The relative scarcity of your observations is due to the dematerialized state of these ships. Being unable to perceive them yourselves, you cannot acknowledge their existence. We fully understand this.

When most observations do occur, they are arranged on an individual basis so as to touch the individual soul and not to influence or intrude on any organized social system.

This is deliberate on the part of the various races that surround you, but for a variety of reasons and results. For negative multidimensional beings that play a part in the exercise of power in the shadow of human oligarchy, discretion is motivated by their desire to keep their existence unknown.

For us, discretion has been motivated by the respect of the human free will that people can exercise to manage their own affairs so that they can reach technical and spiritual maturity on their own.

However, humankind’s entrance into the family of galactic civilizations is greatly expected.

We can appear in broad daylight to help you attain this union, but we have not done it so far, as too few of you have genuinely desired it because of ignorance, indifference or fear, and because the urgency of the situation did not justify it.

Who are you?

You are the offspring of many traditions that throughout time have been mutually enriched by each others’ contributions.

Your goal is to unite, while respecting these diverse roots, to accomplish a common purpose, a united project. The appearances of your cultures help keep you separated because you give them far greater importance than you give your deeper beings.

Shape, or form, has been deemed more important than the essence of your subtle nature. For the powers in control, this emphasis on differences of form constitutes a bulwark against any form of positive change.

Now you are being called on to overcome the identification with form while still respecting it for its richness and beauty. Understanding the consciousness behind form allows us to love all humans in their diversity.

Peace does not mean simply not making war; it consists in becoming what you, collectively, are in reality: a fraternity.

The solutions available to achieve this are decreasing, but one that could still catalyze it would be open contact with another race that would reflect the image of what you are in a deeper reality.

Except for rare occasions, our past interventions intentionally had very little influence on your capacity to make collective and individual decisions about your own future.

This was motivated by our knowledge of your deep psychological mechanisms. We reached the conclusion that freedom is built every day as a being becomes aware of himself and of his environment, getting progressively rid of constraints and inertias, whatever they may be.

However, despite the actions of numerous brave and willing human souls, those inertias have been successfully maintained for the benefit of a growing, centralized power.

What is your situation?

Until recently, mankind lived in satisfactory control of its decisions. But it is losing more and more the control of its own fate, partly because of the growing use of advanced technologies that affect your body as well as your mind and will eventually have irreversibly lethal consequences for earthly and human ecosystems.

Independently of your own will, your resilience will artificially decrease and you will slowly but surely lose your extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. Such plans are on their way.

Should a collective reaction of great magnitude not happen, this individual power is doomed to vanish. The period to come shall be one of rupture.

This break, however, can be a positive break with the past as long as you keep this creative power alive in you, even if it cohabits, for the time being, with the dark intentions of your potential lords.

What now? Should you wait for the last moment to find solutions? Should you anticipate or undergo pain?

Your history has never ceased to be marked by encounters between peoples whose discovery of one another occurred in circumstances of conflict and conquest.

Earth has now become a village where everyone knows everyone else, but still conflicts persist and threats of all kinds get worse in intensity and duration.

Individuals who have many potential capacities cannot exercise them with dignity. This is the case for the greatest majority of you, for reasons that are essentially geopolitical.

There are several billion of you, but the education of your children and your living conditions, as well as the conditions of numerous animals and much plant life are under the thumb of a small number of your political, financial, military and religious representatives.

Your thoughts and beliefs are modeled after partisan interests while at the same time giving you the feeling that you are in total control of your destiny — which in essence is the reality, but there is a long way between a wish and a fact when the true rules of the game at hand are kept hidden.

This time, you are not the conqueror. Spreading biased information is an effective strategy for manipulating human beings. Inducing thoughts and emotions, or even creating organisms, that do not belong to you is an even older strategy.

A great roller wave is on the horizon. It entails very positive but also very negative potentials. At this time wonderful opportunities of progress stand side by side with threats of destruction.

However, you can only perceive what is being shown to you. The diminishing of many natural resources is inevitable and no long-term collective remediation project has been launched. Ecosystem exhaustion mechanisms have exceeded irreversible limits.

The scarcity of resources whose entry price will rise day after day — and their unfair distribution — will bring about fratricidal fights on a large scale, from the hearts of your cities to your countrysides.

This is the reason why, more than ever in your history, your decisions of today will directly and significantly impact your survival tomorrow.

Hatred grows… but so does love. That is what keeps you confident in your ability to find solutions.

However, human behaviors, formed from past habits and trainings, have great inertia that leads to a dead end. The critical mass has not been reached, while the work of sabotage is being carried out cleverly and efficiently.

You entrust your problems to representatives whose awareness of common well being inexorably fades away before corporatist interests.

These putative servants of the people are far more often debating the form than the content. Just at the moment of action, delays accumulate to the point when you have to submit rather than choose.

This inertia is in many ways typical of any civilization. What event could radically modify it? Where could a collective and unifying awareness come from that will stop this blind rushing ahead?

Tribes, populations and human nations have always encountered and interacted with one another. Faced with the threats weighing upon the human family, it is perhaps time that a greater interaction occurred.

There are two ways to establish a cosmic contact with another civilization: via its standing representatives or directly with ordinary individuals.

The first way entails fights of interests, the second way brings awareness. The first way was chosen by a group of races motivated by keeping mankind in slavery, thereby controlling Earth’s resources, its gene pool, and the mass of human emotional energy.

The second way was chosen by a group of races allied with the cause of the Spirit of Service. Some years ago we did introduce ourselves to representatives of the human power structure, but they refused our outstretched hand on the basis of interests that were incompatible with their strategic vision.

That is why today individuals are to make this choice by themselves without any representatives interfering. What we proposed in the past to those whom we believed were in a capacity to contribute to your happiness, we propose now — to you.

Few of you are aware that non-human creatures have been involved in the centralizing of power in your world, and in the subtle taking of control. These creatures do not necessarily stand on your material plane, which is precisely what could make them extremely efficient and frightening in the near future.

However, also be aware that quite a few of your representatives are in fact fighting this danger, that not all alien abductions are conducted to your detriment, and that resistance also exists amongst those dominance-oriented races.

Peace and reunification of your peoples would be a first step toward harmony with civilizations other than yours. That is precisely what those who manipulate you behind the scenes want to avoid at all cost because, by dividing, they reign.

They also reign over those who more visibly govern you. Their strength comes from their capacity to instill mistrust and fear. This considerably harms your very cosmic nature.

This message would be of no interest if these manipulators’ influence were not reaching its peak and if their misleading and murderous plans did not materialize within a few years from now.

Their deadlines are close and mankind will undergo unprecedented difficulties for the next ten cycles [years?]. To defend yourselves against this aggression that bears no face, you need at least to have enough information that points to the solution.

Here again, appearance and body type will not be enough to tell the dominator from the ally.

At your current state of psychic development it is extremely difficult for you to distinguish between them. In addition to your intuition, training will be necessary when the time has come. Being aware of the priceless value of free will, we are inviting you to an alternative.

What can we offer?

We can offer you a more holistic vision of the universe and of life, constructive interactions, the experience of fair and fraternal relationships, liberating technical knowledge, eradication of suffering, controlled exercise of individual powers, access to new forms of energy and, finally, a better comprehension of consciousness.

We cannot help you overcome your individual and collective fears, or bring you laws that you would not have chosen. You must also work on your own selves, apply individual and collective efforts to build the world you desire, and manifest the spirit to quest for new skies.

What would we receive?

Should you decide that such a contact take place, we would rejoice over the safeguarding of fraternal equilibrium in this region of the universe, fruitful diplomatic exchanges, and the intense Joy of knowing that you are united to accomplish what you are capable of.

The feeling of Joy is strongly sought in the universe, for its energy is divine. What is the question we ask you?

“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”

How can you answer this question? The truth of soul can be read telepathically, so you only need to clearly ask yourself this question and give your answer as clearly, on your own or in a group, as you wish.

Being in the heart of a city or in the middle of a desert does not impact the efficiency of your answer. YES or NO.

Just do it as if you were speaking to yourself but thinking about the message. This is a universal question, and these mere few words, put in their context, have a powerful meaning.

This is why you should calmly think about it, in all conscience. In order to perfectly associate your answer with the question, it is recommended that you answer after another careful reading of this message.

Do not rush to answer. Breathe and let all the power of your own free will penetrate you. Be proud of what you are! Then do not let hesitation get in the way.

The everyday problems that you may have can weaken you. To be yourselves, forget about them for a few minutes. Feel the force that springs up in you. You are in control of yourselves!

A single thought, a single answer can drastically change your near future, in one way as in another. Your individual decision of asking in your inner self that we show up on your material plane and in broad daylight is precious and essential to us.

Even though you can choose the way that best suits you, rituals per se are essentially useless. A sincere request made with your heart and your own will, will always be perceived by those of us to whom it is sent. In your own private polling booth of your secret will, you will determine the future.

What is the lever effect?

This decision should be made by the greatest possible number among you, even though it might seem like a minority.

It is recommended to spread this message, in all envisageable fashions, in as many languages as possible, to those around you, whether or not they seem receptive to this new vision of the future. Do it using a humorous tone or derision if that can help you.

You can even openly and publicly make fun of it if it makes you feel more comfortable, but do not be indifferent, for at least you will have exercised your free will. Forget about the false prophets and the beliefs that have been transmitted to you about us.

This request is one of the most intimate that can be asked to you. Making a decision by yourself, as an individual, is your right as well as your responsibility. Passivity only leads to the absence of freedom.

Similarly, indecision is never efficient. If you really want to cling to your beliefs, which is something that we understand, then forcefully say NO.

If you do not know what to choose, do not say YES because of mere curiosity. This is not a show, this is real daily life. We exist. We are alive.

Your history has had plenty of episodes when determined men and women were able to influence the thread of events despite their small number.

Just as a small number is enough to take temporal power on Earth and influence the future of the majority, a small number of you can radically change your fate as an answer to the impotence in face of so much inertia and so many hurdles. You can ease mankind’s birth to Brotherhood.

One of your thinkers once said:

“Give me a hand-hold and I’ll raise the Earth.”

Spreading this message will then be the strengthening of the hand-hold. We will be the light-years long lever and you will be the craftsmen to “raise the Earth” as a consequence of our appearance.

What would be the consequences of a positive decision?

For us, the immediate consequence of a collective favorable decision would be the materialization of many ships, in your sky and on Earth.

For you, the direct effect would be the rapid abandoning of many certitudes and beliefs. A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions for your future.

Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved forever, in all fields of activity.

Power would become individual because you would see for yourself that we exist as living beings, not accepting or rejecting that fact on the word of any external authority. Concretely, you would change the scale of your values.

The most important thing for us is that humankind would form a single family before this “unknown” we would represent!

Danger would slowly melt away from your homes because you would indirectly force the undesirable ones, those we name the “third party,” to show up and vanish. You would all bear the same name and share the same roots: Mankind.

Later on, peaceful and respectful exchanges would be thus possible if such is your wish. For now, he who is hungry cannot smile, he who is fearful cannot welcome us.

We are sad to see men, women and children suffering to such a degree in their flesh and in their hearts when they bear such an inner light. This light can be your future.

Our relationships could develop in stages. Several stages of several years or decades would occur: demonstrative appearance of our ships, physical appearance beside human beings, collaboration in your technical and spiritual evolution, discovery of parts of the galaxy.

At every stage new choices would be offered to you. You would then decide by yourself to enter new stages if you think it necessary to your external and inner well-being. No interference would be decided upon unilaterally. We would leave as soon as you would collectively wish that we do.

Depending upon the speed to spread the message across the world, several weeks, or even several months will be necessary before our “great appearance,” if such is the decision made by the majority of those who will have used their capacity to choose, and if this message receives the necessary support.

The main difference between your daily prayers to entities of a strictly spiritual nature and your current decision is extremely simple: we are technically equipped to materialize.

Why such a historical dilemma?

We know that “foreigners” are considered as enemies as long as they embody the “unknown.” In a first stage, the emotion that our appearance will generate will strengthen your relationships on a worldwide scale.

How could you know whether our arrival is the consequence of your collective choice? For the simple reason that we would have otherwise shown up long ago at your level of existence. If we are not there yet, it is because you have not made such a decision explicitly.

Some among you might think that we would make you believe in a deliberate choice of yours so as to justify our arrival, though this would not be true. If that were the case, what interest would we have in openly giving you access to these opportunities for the benefit of the greatest number of you?

How could you be certain that this is not yet another subtle maneuver of the “third party” to better enslave you? Because one always more efficiently fights something that is identified than what is kept hidden.

Isn’t the terrorism that corrodes you a blatant example? Whatever, you are the sole judge in your own heart and soul. Whatever your choice, it would be respectable and respected.

In the absence of human representatives who could potentially seduce into error you ignore everything about us as well as from about those who manipulate you without your consent.

[There seems to be some text missing in the translation here.]

In your current situation, the precautionary principle that consists in not trying to discover us no longer prevails. You are already in the Pandora’s box that the “third party” has created around you. Whatever your decision may be, you will have to get out of it.

In the face of such a dilemma, one ignorance against another, you need to ask your intuition. Do you want to see us with your own eyes, or simply believe what your “authorities” say? That is the real question! After thousands of years, one day this choice was going to be inevitable: choosing between two unknowns.

Why spread such a message among yourselves?

Translate and spread this message widely. This action will affect your future in an irreversible and historical way at the scale of millennia. Otherwise, it will postpone a new opportunity to choose until several years later — at least one generation, if that generation can survive.

Not choosing stands for undergoing other people’s choice. Not informing others stands for running the risk of obtaining a result that is contrary to one’s expectations. Remaining indifferent means giving up one’s free will.

It is all about your future. It is all about your evolution. It is possible that this invitation will not receive your collective assent and will be disregarded. Nevertheless no individual desire goes unheeded in the universe.

Imagine our arrival tomorrow. Thousands of ships. A unique cultural shock in today’s mankind’s history. It will then be too late to regret not making a choice and spreading the message because this discovery will be irreversible.

We do insist that you do not rush into it, but do think about it… And decide. The big media will not necessarily be interested in spreading this message. It is therefore your task, as an anonymous yet an extraordinary thinking and loving being, to transmit it.

You are still the architects of your own fate…

“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”

CebuanoDanskEnglishFrançaisDeutschPortuguêsРусскийEspañolУкраїнська

The glitz and glam of Hollywood as portrayed in Western culture unforgivably showcases a standard of living that most Americans will never achieve. These unrealistic lifestyles projected onto the public mainly through television feature material objects like gorgeous condos, fancy cars, designer clothes and… money, and the importance of having it.

While this illusion is being projected onto the public through TV shows like The Real Housewives of New York City, or Keeping up with the KardashiansCNS News reported data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau showing that approximately 86 million private sector workers are supporting over 150 million Americans who are receiving some type of government benefit.

Clearly, there is a disconnect between reality and the influences presented by unrealistic societal norms.

It’s no wonder that a recent study conducted by San Francisco State University found that people are more inclined to spend money on material items rather than personal experiences in which memories are created. Even more interestingly, people are aware that creating memories outweighs material purchases in the satisfaction department; however, they still choose material items.

“People actually do know, and accurately predict, that life experiences will make them happier,” said Ryan Howell, co-author of the study and associate professor of psychology at SF State.

“What they really underestimate is how much monetary value they will get out of a life experience. Even though they’re told experiences will make them happier and they know experiences will make them happier, they still perceive material items as being a better value.”

Television, movies, social media and celebrities are all vehicles for advertisement. These advertisers have one objective, and it’s a financial one. Instead of portraying quality time spent with family, expensive material objects are viewed as sexy and a must-have, even if it means going into debt to obtain it.

Howell suggests that material items give people a sense of satisfaction simply because they’re tangible and usually have a set price. Memories, however, are much more difficult to measure with money. “We naturally associate economic value with stuff. I bought this car, it’s worth $8,000,” said Howell.

“We have a hard time estimating the economic value we would place on our memories.”

The study included surveyed individuals both before and after they made a purchase. “Prior to the purchase, respondents said they believed a life experience would make them happier but a material item would be a better use of their money,” reported Science Daily. “After the purchase, however, respondents reported that life experiences not only made them happier but were also the better value.”

“There were just huge underestimates in how much value people expected to get from their purchase,” Howell said. “It’s almost like people feel they will get no economic value from their life experiences and therefore they feel this tension in spending money on them.”

During an additional experiment, subjects were asked to prioritize value “when making a purchase gravitated toward material items, while those asked to prioritize happiness chose experiences.”

Of course, happiness means something different to everyone, but it’s an emotion or feeling that should be felt by all, and how you achieve it should come from within and not what you see on TV.

One of the biggest influences of happiness is your exposure to the great outdoors. A study conducted in the UK by the American Chemical Society found that those who spent more time in nature were far happier than city-dwellers. In addition to feeling happy, energy levels are boosted and our immune systems strengthen, resulting in an increase in one’s feelings of vitality and well-being.

“Nature is fuel for the soul. Often when we feel depleted we reach for a cup of coffee, but research suggests a better way to get energized is to connect with nature,” said the study’s lead author, Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester.

Authentic Happiness is a Choice You Can Make Now

Find out what your level of happiness is and then improve it.“Authentic Happiness” is the name of a website developed by Dr. Martin Seligman, Director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania and founder of positive psychology, a branch of psychology which focuses on the empirical study of such things as positive emotions and their impact on an individual’s life.

The site has several very illuminating and fascinating scientifically tested questionnaires, surveys, and scales to help you gauge your current level of happiness and satisfaction with life; from there, you can improve your happiness by using proven techniques. Questionnaires and tests include:

  • Authentic happiness inventory

  • General happiness questionnaire

  • Brief strengths test (character strengths)

  • Gratitude questionnaire

  • Grit survey (your level of perseverance)

  • Optimism test

  • Transgressions motivations questionnaire (your ability to forgive)

  • Compassionate love scale

  • Meaning in life questionnaire

  • Approaches to happiness questionnaire

  • Satisfaction with life scale

This is a small sampling of the questionnaires offered that give you an accurate look at your worldview. But, you don’t need to take tests to determine whether you’re generally happy or generally unhappy. Just look around you at your circumstances; listen to your inner self-talk; and take note of your feelings throughout the day.

So what do you do once you’ve found out how you seek happiness, and how your approach to life either positively or negatively affects your happiness?

Authentic happines is a choice you can make now.You can turn to the Silva Method for help in creating authentic happiness in your life. Here’s how:

1. First, learn the technique for getting into the alpha state. This is the state of relaxation and light meditation where your worries begin to dissolve, your creativity blossoms, obstacles become more transparent and your whole body gives a huge sigh of relief. Most of our days are spent in the beta level, which is the brainwave state of alertness. Unfortunately, it’s also a very stress-prone state so it’s a good idea to take some time every day and relax into alpha – a slower, mellower yet still aware state of mind. This is the first step to happiness – being able to relax yourself and self-soothe when you’re in a stressed out frame of mind.

2. In alpha, you can use various  creative visualization exercises to paint a mental picture of how you would like your life to be. It’s a way to use your imagination with a purpose – conscious creation based on what you want, instead of what you’re trying to get away from. If your thoughts are centered on what’s wrong with your life, you will find it hard to be happy. Focusing on what you want is not denial, as some might think. It is a command to the subconscious mind that states, “This is what I want!” What you focus on, expands so if you want your worries to sort themselves out, you need to give your mind a better command. What’s wonderful about this is that as you shift your focus to what you want and start acting on the inspirations you get on the topic, you’ll find that many of your current worries will disappear or work themselves out.

It’s much easier to be happy when you’re proactive than when you’re reactive! In fact, learning how to be happy “on command” will help you deal with difficult situations in better ways.

3. You can also use this relaxed state of mind to do some powerful self-work exercises:

  • building even greater self-awareness so that you know your “unhappiness triggers”

  • reprogramming your outdated and disempowering beliefs and creating positive, empowering beliefs

  • learning to perceive things from a new perspective

  • using gratitude to create instant happiness

  • creating positive new thought habits – for example, you can train yourself to not procrastinate, using the Silva Method’s Three Fingers Technique

You can also use meditation to simply sit and “be” with yourself. This is something many of us don’t take the time to do, in this hurry-up world. You can use this time to listen to the tone of your mental chatter – and gradually change its tone, if it tends toward the negative (if you find yourself complaining, blaming, judging or being angry or resentful, you could do with a change of tone. If you change the way you look at things, those things will change! Annoying people will become “just people”; frustrating situations will become “just situations.” You will learn to make better choices in how you interpret people’s actions. And, you will learn to enter a deep state of meditation where you feel a strong unity with all there is, giving you a sense of belonging and acceptance instead of feelings of separation and loneliness.

Authentic happiness comes from within!The real truth is, happiness is a choice that only you can make. It does not come from any external factors – once you have your very basic needs taken care of, you are free to choose happiness as your “baseline” mood (of course you’ll have great days and bad days; that’s part of being human; but you’ll quickly regain your equilibrium and feel happy most of the time). If you find yourself thinking, “I will be happy when… (I am in the perfect relationship, I have a new job, I live in a better place, I am healthy, etc.)” then you are denying your own power to create happiness. Authentic happiness comes from within. No recognition, money, prizes or status can make you as happy as simply making the choice to be happy. In fact, being happy makes it much easier to attract positive situations and people into your life.

It does take practice, though, because it’s not an easy choice to make when circumstances are bleak. It takes self-work to be able to transcend the negative thoughts, emotions and the events that you may believe are the cause of your unhappiness. When you realize that you are the cause of your happiness or unhappiness, you become empowered to make positive change. As former US president Abraham Lincoln once said, “People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Thought Adjuster. 
Subject: “What Will You Leave for Your Children?”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Your media is doing a great disservice to the generation growing up in these times. The moral deterioration of humanity is becoming evident in what is projected on television. Your movies, your music, your television programs, your internet, and even your news, are focused on subjects which a few years ago would have been considered trivial, trite, reprehensible, and lacking in professionalism. The media is not the cause of the evils of humanity, merely a consequence, contributing by perpetuating the problems.

“How can one defend oneself from this bombardment of the absurd? The world requires examples of authentic lives. Develop your spirituality and live your lives dedicated to the will of the Father, so you can be examples to your peers. Develop authentic, sincere, and deep relationships with those around you, so they can feel inspired to follow you along the higher path. Be the peace in the middle of the storm so those who are confused by falsehood, and live under the weight of anxiety, may become motivated to ask for the source of that peace.

“You arrived at a time in your civilization when you have to decide if you will use the greater part of your resources and your time for self-satisfaction, or invest all in an effort to grow – what Michael called ‘fighting the good fight of the faith’. When a civilization cares only about self-gratification, it loses the momentum to keep evolving and it inevitably destroys itself. It happened in Mesopotamia, it happened in Greece, and it happened in Rome, to cite only a few examples. How is it that you don’t notice the symptoms of a historical disease that has been described in detail in your books and by your wise?

“The will of the Father will prevail in the end. It depends on you if you will continue on that path of growth, industry, exploration, philosophy, and true science, or if you will motivate your youth towards the easy pursuit of success and material rewards that are achieved with minimal effort. It is your choice to take one more step towards light and life in this world, or repeat another cycle of regression and re-discovery.

“The world needs adventurers and explorers who will dedicate their lives to find something beyond themselves to produce something that perhaps only the succeeding generations may enjoy, as you are able to enjoy the many comforts available today. What will you leave for your children at your departure from this world?”

Time for Collection

Creation is MY investment and MY gift to MY children. You are the assets within MY creation. Your worth is measureless. You were born into wealth wearing the crown jewels I placed upon you at birth. You then decided to create lives of your own for the sake of experience but always with the promise that you would return to ME with your wealth in tact.

I gave you leave to explore the elements of space and time; not to seek out your fortune but to simply experience and interact with MY creation. I expected that you would have invested your assets wisely to enrich your experience and know the WHOLE and ALL of ME, though you appeared to be separate from ME. Many have forgotten their roots and cannot comprehend ME. They have forgotten WHO I AM and where I AM. I AM the long forgotten SOURCE for many and for others I AM a being wholly separate from them; a ruler who sits above in a place called Heaven waiting to meet out judgment at an appropriate time.  The truth being, you were and are never without ME, in spite of the myriad journeys you have taken.

What many of you do not know is that I take the journey with you for it is impossible for ME to be without you and for you to be without ME. The difference is that I AM aware whilst many of you are not. The Creator is always in attendance on creation; forever observing HIS assets as they sojourn in time and space to see whether they are allowing their experiences to rob them of their birthright or whether they are using their birthright to maximize the experiences which will in turn yield returns and enable them to find their way home. I AM constantly nudging you from within that you may recognize MY presence and in so doing your creative ‘creator’ abilities.

Many have lost memory of their inherent wealth and seek to fill a void with that which is of a material nature, transient, as its worth is meaningless in the place where they must return to. Those who have come into remembrance and knowledge of the treasures they bear within themselves have wisely invested their timeless assets in choices amenable to longevity of spirit. Their wise investments have earned them ‘spiritual dividends’ stored in their cosmic bank accounts. For it is that which is stored herewith that will determine their next placement.

For those unable to recall their Source and homeland, I have paid special attention to; mercifully recognizing that they needed and are in need of assistance. I have sought to purchase their passage home through the ones I have sent time and time again to provide the vehicle for their return. Yet many have spurned this offer in preference to extending their journey. So I watch as these ones gamble their assets on unwise investments and forfeit in the process the most valuable gift bestowed upon their birth; their sovereignty.

There are those who remember who I AM and who know where they have come from yet they have chosen against ME. They have surrendered their spiritual assets in favor of the material and worldly ones and seek to create a kingdom for themselves in a material world that has no reality.

It is COLLECTION TIME. I have come to reap the returns on MY investment.  I come to assess how my assets have fared and to determine where next they should be invested. Those who have earned high returns will ascend to places where nature will support the accumulation of greater spiritual dividends.

Those who earned little during their experience as they bought into false doctrines and precepts and in so doing surrendered their sovereignty and freedom for imprisoning chains; will be freed by MY hands and be given another opportunity to regain what they lost in places  more supportive to the pursuit of self awareness.

Those whose spiritual coffers are totally bare due to their malignant choices, preferences and investments in barren affairs, will struggle to survive as they flounder for the breath of life. Ever merciful, I offer a lifeline as I extend MY hands offering assistance. I ask them to choose ME as their new partner that I may inject fresh capital of light into deadened assets. A few have accepted this offer in wisdom as they know that they are spiritually bankrupt. I will be their Trustee in Bankruptcy; and so will decide how and from which placement they shall repay their debts and thus begin to regain the assets they willingly abused and lost.

The rest have rejected MY offer. They have chosen to forfeit further investment in experience and thus coldly severed themselves from the Source of their lives. They have rejected life. and in so doing have determined their penalty.

NEW JOURNIES AND MOVING MOUNTAINS

Posted April 11, 2012 By Mark
CebuanoDanskEnglishFrançaisDeutschPortuguêsРусскийEspañolУкраїнська

Seraphin through Rosie, 7th April 2012
*
The point from which you start is not a starting point. It is a point of accumulation of experience. The point from which you start is not a crossroad where you ask yourself “Shall I take the high road or the low road?” It is a multi-storied multicolored multi-exit mulch-dimensional node offering an infinite number of possibilities. A door is not a door into an enclosed room. A door is but a line which, when crossed, can signify entrance to a completely new space WITHOUT LIMITATION.
*
The question is, Beloveds, do you cross that threshold or enter that node WITH OR WITHOUT AWARENESS. There are those who travel the world with their eyes closed, only to re-enter the close ferment of the familiar. They may have opened a door, BUT THEY HAVE NOT OPENED THEIR MINDS. Everything they have noted on their journey is either “different to” or “confirmation of” the concepts, views and convictions which are lodged so firmly in their heads.
*
Travelingthrough life in this way is like standing on a fixed spot. The traveler is stuck on his or her “standpoint”. But it is time now for EVERYONE to move on. There will be no more revolving around self. There will be no more secure positions from which you will be able to “survey the scene” from a safe distance. For all distances will be reduced, and all people will necessarily become involved in what is to pass. It will not be possible to say “STOP! THIS IS MY ROOM, MY MONEY, MY FIELD, MY WATER, MY FENCE!” since fences and systems or all natures are earmarked for collapse, and the world MY will expand into the word OUR through a huge jolt of global compassion.
*
When the walls fall, when there is no more door to traverse, when there is only truth in the open arena, you will stand naked at the very centre of the multi-dimensional node we have already mentioned. You will be crushed by a feeling of utter despair when you see your religious, social, political and financial systems tumbling, but you will be even more crushed to realize your LIFE-LONG SERVITUDE TO FALSE MASTERS.
*
This time, it will not be possible, as we have said, to view this from afar, from a position of sovereignty. The only way forward will be compassion. The only sovereign will be the heart. Using the heart does not mean constant smiles and immediate self-sacrifice. It means giving people wings. It means a strong and intense desire to raise the vibrations, expectations and potential of a dejected person in the form of opening a door and encouraging them to enter it, rather than constantly providing them with a huge variety of physical assistance. You aim should be to so electrify or enlighten someone with new insights, ideas and possibilities THAT THEY DO NO NEED YOU ANY MORE, THAT THEY DANCE AWAY IN HAPPINESS AND MOVE MOUNTAINS. It is not your job to move those mountains for them on a regular long-term basis.
*
And so it will be that you, children of earth, will grow into your potential, all encouraging all instead of isolating yourselves behind self-made fences erected out of fear. We of the spiritual hierarchy who have been separated from your planet for so long, will again become part of your world and will help you to travel this new and exciting journey.

I love you – Me More

Posted April 11, 2012 By Mark
CebuanoDanskEnglishFrançaisDeutschPortuguêsРусскийEspañolУкраїнська

I share this as we have a saying that I did with my children since they were mere babes.

I would say I love you to them

They would say I love you too

Then I would say me more

Then they would say me more, more (or me more two) – Yes it was a counting game as well

I would then say me more, more, more (or me more three)

and it would go on usually about me more 20 they would finally say “me more infinity”. 

This is what our Creator is saying to us – me more infinity and more!

 

“I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY”

I know, I said I/we love you too…

“NO, YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND…WHAT I AM TRYING TO TELL YOU ALL IS THAT THERE DO NOT ACTUALLY EXIST WORDS ADEQUATE ENOUGH TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU. MY LOVE IS LIMITLESS. I KNOW YOU INSIDE OUT, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, FROM BEGINNING TO NOW. YOU CAN SAY YOU LOVE ME THAT MUCH TOO, BUT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW ME LIKE I KNOW YOU. YOU WILL EVENTUALLY LOVE ME MUCH MORE AND MUCH MORE DEEPLY, AFTER SPENDING TIME WITH ME IN REALITY, BUT I DO NOT TELL YOU THIS TO MAKE YOU FEEL BADLY…I TELL YOU THIS TO TAKE SOME OF THE PRESSURE OFF. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE AT THIS MOMENT FOR YOU TO LOVE ME LIKE I LOVE YOU… I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF… BUT YOU ARE NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE YOU MIGHT PERCEIVE AT THIS TIME.”

Your mind

Posted March 10, 2012 By Mark
CebuanoDanskEnglishFrançaisDeutschPortuguêsРусскийEspañolУкраїнська

The mind is like the engine and the electronics in the car, but it is the soul who has the key and the heart is the ignition. The mind truly wants to understand the joy of living in God Consciousness, but it needs soul to give it guidance.
