The West

The West

The Emotions
Dusk/Sunset
Fall

 

The mystery of life, of emptiness + fulfillment, loneliness + all-one-ness

We are containers of love

A journey of devotion

You have been given time + time is the pathway in which you lay your life day by day

With each lesson life gives you, meet it with the highest vibration of love

How you spend your time is how you love. What you spend your time on is that which you are devoted to. This is your "religion"

Your "religion" is your spiritual expression

Life is your love, your expression, your devotion

Activity



Begin to see your life as a sacred ceremony

How do you fill your basket of love?

And who do you offer its contents

How can you integrate more intentional ceremony in your everyday life?

How can you channel your emotions into expression?

Practice these new ideas

Watch how ritualizing ceremony + expression can help you honour each emotion and life event as it comes and move with the flow of life, lessening the need for attachment, blame, or playing a victim in any life circumstance

 


Cycle of wo/manifesting with the west, the emotions


Ace

Offering of love
Divine perfection is within us
When we offer love to others, our spiritual gifts move through us
As we give, the inner waters flow and guide us to harmony
The nectar of infinite love is already within our hearts
Sit in your inner garden + drink deeply the nectar of infinite love that pours from your heart
Meditate on kindness, attention, acceptance, emotional comfort + sustenance
(All forms of love with no strings attached)
Give freely without expectation
In order to do this you must find the source of constant replenishment within
Embody the giver of love within, + the outer world will supply all you need

Two

Friendship
I am open to receiving, I am ready to give
True friendships appear in my earthly life when the aspects of giving + receiving become friends within myself
Balance is the exercise. You have needs + wishes, and so does the other
You both have different strengths to be drawn upon
Each must be supported in their role of expertise, respected + thus enhanced

Three

Spiritual Kinship
Whenever others are gathered around me I will celebrate our lives
Only through sharing the blessings of life with grace do we create abundance
Love to to be shared with your spiritual family, what flows from you, will in the great circle of life eventually flow to you as well

Four

Materializations of love
I create my gift in a material way, expressing those intangible feelings that draw me to my people
Love thyself, then give freely from this love

Five

Letting go
The love you give may or may not be accepted
Not everyone will understand or be open to you
Can you let go without blame?
All the love that flows from you is to the great creator
No love is lost
Continue with your flow of kindness, generosity + care, maybe direct it in a new direction
Your rewards can be constantly happening within you as you let your highest qualities come through
Results are nice, but do not wait on them
Keep going, you will find your hidden strength
Your being seeks better + better situations for you

Six

Appreciate days gone by
The lessons of each love live on
Be grateful
These beautiful heartfelt experiences have been your teachers
Honour them as medicine for your journey
A kind goodbye to what was cleanses the cup to be filled with fresh love once again

Seven

Swept away
Swept away in an ocean of sensation, visions totally inspire you. This is a peak experience. You may have to increase your tolerance for bliss
Let yourself be happy
The wave may subside, but it will rise again
The illusion is that all future problems are solved by the wave of love
No, this wave has come because you were complete with your past
You fully let go + went ahead
When you are current, the current is strong
Ride the wave. Enjoy it. Live full of grace + be in the present moment
Give yourself permission to be fully yourself
Be whole
Be courageous enough to be fully who you are in each moment
