For myself, I am a teacher of self awareness of the ego. For others, I am a preschool teacher and a teacher of Tai Chi and so, I offer an excerpt from Samael Aun Woer’s Books, Fundamentals of Gnostic Education, p. 5, “ Fear is one of the barriers of intelligence. Students with fear do not dare to disagree, and blindly accept as articles of faith whatever different authors state. It is useless for teachers to talk about audacity if they are fearful. Teachers must be free of fear. Teachers who fear criticism, who are afraid of what people might say, etc., cannot be truly intelligent. The true objective of education must be to put an end to fear and to awaken the consciousness. What is the purpose of passing examinations if we continue being afraid and unconscious?”
Sat in Meditation, still, body supported. Asked my higher self to go to the ruler of karma, Anubis, in the molecular world/astral plane, ask for help in negotiating my karma, to pay my trespasses/debts with my acts of kindness. Told my body that I would leaving for a time and practiced leaving my body...”I am flying to the corner of my living room, I am flying to the corner of my dinning room, I can see my body sitting in the chair. I am flying above my house, I see the garden, I fly around the big maple tree, I fly above the rain clouds and see the stars, I fly towards the brightest star in the Ursa Major (Big Dipper) constellation, I enter their atmosphere and fly around the sky asking for friends of light and love. I fly home to my body.
9 Phases Qigong, holding last form (Dissolve) in physical stillness while sending my higher self on an out-of-body flight around the room, then outside around my neighborhood.
Deepak Chopra says:
"According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous?
Are you in the miraculous? Is this the time of your life to make the choice to live in the synchronization of your nirvana? Recall and share if you wish of some of your experiences of synchronicity that has occurred in your life.
My friend, Mikal, posts a daily affirmation that I would like to share with you today. I heard this same message years ago in my gnostic teachings from Samael Aun Woer. Beautiful how the same messages come through in all different kinds of faiths.
Deepak Chopra says: "Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.”
Thanks to Mark Harrison for being my perfect partner on this journey.
He has taught me devotion, respect and true love, letting go of judgment and expectations.
What are your relationships and daily events teaching you? What are the hidden meaning trying to tell you about your evolution into love and light?
Once you find the meaning, how are you going to use that information to change your world and evolve? How?
Hint: the world is full of competition, judgement and control... how do we change and evolve into neutrality, forgiveness and compassion?
My prayers are to connect with the angels. Travel in the astral plane to sit with the masters in the 4th dimension Mystery Schools. My prayers are to find eternal peace within. My prayers are to the angels to help me reach out to others and teach practical ways to find inner peace, spreading that internal peace through the world. Heaven on Earth.
What are your prayers? How do you achieve your prayers? What are your practical tools, practices, routines to reach your nirvana... to ensure your prayers are answered?

From every droplet of water in the air to the stars in the sky, there is beauty. I am part of the beauty, walking a fine line with a careful step along a beautiful path helping to choreograph the plan on Earth.
Right now, I'm working on walking the line of awareness, eliminating reaction to gain understanding and forgiveness.
What is your part in the plan?
