Drowning in Duality

As a solution to several requests, what follows is the note from the Love Quest, which is a Face Book event.  These will continue until 8.27.2012.

I sort of planned to explore today what oneness isn’t.  I think that it is easy to talk virtually about love and light and unity and then blame your boss or carry anger for what your ex-lover “did”.  In perfect synchronicity, my everyday life has been swimming in duality.  Actually, if it wasn’t for the Quest and all of you, I’d be drowning.  This has turned out to be more than I bargained for!  In no uncertain terms, I am dealing with duality.

These Quests began in the Spring of 2011 and were never intended to continue past the first one.  It was suggested as a way to explore in “real time” with each other what it means to love yourself.  I was a different woman then and walked around with a large wad of blame in my pocket.  After the first Quest, we all wanted more and here we are today, with monthly journeys and no end in sight.  The fact that Face Book shut down the first account hardly seems to matter.  Love prevails!

But what is not love?  It seems to be cropping up everywhere I look this week.  The whole notion of “what you believe is what you create” makes little sense if you are thinking about illness and poverty and physical harm.  Yet, the law of attraction exists. 

So what’s the deal?  Today I find myself dealing with issues of health and money and watching highly evolved people whom I love deeply doing the same.  It all comes down to self loathing.

It has to stop.  We’ve all watched “The Secret” and “What the Bleep” and read Neale Donald Walsch and Abraham Hicks and heard Mike Dooley and many others. We actually do know how this works.  We’ve been inundated with teachers because the programming runs so deep.  We’ve learned well, it is the un-learning that will set us free.

There are two thoughts that separate and isolate us.  One is that we are somehow “different”.  Two is that “No one would understand”.  Both are false.  A few years back I attended a seminar and the scariest part was this: you stood up and told the group, 100+ people, the worst secret you could muster up about yourself.  I was terrified.  As I listened and then took my turn I realized that appearances reveal nothing and second of all my worst was pretty much status quo.  We’ve all been there.   We’ve all done “worse” and we all deserve love in spite of it.

Duality is screaming to get our attention! Who are you?  Are you someone who hates?  Are you someone who loves?  Do you buy all this love and light jazz or are you convinced it is the physical you that is real?  We are being asked to choose.

Believing in the love that you are is the ultimate statement of truth, of faith.  Whatever is showing up for you right now – debt, fear, illness, anger, hatred or loss of any kind is merely a test. It cannot be ignored, and it is multiple choice.  It is not pass/fail; there are many ways to complete it successfully.  Within you is the right answer, the one that suits your heart.  You know what to do.  You came for this.  Remember.

Your spiritual evolution will continue in the most perfect fashion, following whichever blueprint you construct right now.  It is my deepest belief that tells me you are love.  We are not different from each other at all, and you would understand.

It is faith that will see us through.  Faith in love or light or God or Source or whatever term you use.  Faith in something beyond what these eyes are seeing.  You are not your body.  You are not your stuff.  You are divinity; an intricate piece of the fabric of life, woven into oneness.  You have done more than read these words today; you have possibly saved a soul.  As I turn on and shine my own light, I illuminate those within my world and there is no telling how far this light now reaches.

For darkness is only eradicated with light; with you.  Take care of your issues that show up today, completely and with a strong heart.  Yet do not embody them.  For they do not define you, love does.

We are so much more than we know.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

With so much gratitude, I will see you tomorrow,
