Lessons in Humility

Every day each of us has an opportunity to turn away from our ego-driven lives and learn a lesson in #humility. The definition of humility is “freedom from pride or arrogance,” according to Merriam Webster. Each time we turn on the news we have the opportunity to see how pride and arrogance operate in negative ways all around us.

Every time someone decides his or her way is better than another human being, or that some humans or animals are more important than others; we experience the pride and arrogance that separates us as a nation.

Let’s forget about what separates us in politics for just a moment to recognize how the entire world is polarized to be better than, smarter than, and stronger than all of the other nations in the world. We are led to believe that the reason we “must” be stronger is for safety. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Yes, we need to stop dictators like Kim Yawn OOOn and any other dictator from killing and harming others. This, of course, takes force. Or does it? What stopped North Korea’s dictator recently from continuing to test his powerful death missiles seems to be a recent meeting of minds. What exactly was exchanged in that meeting between Pompeo and North Korea? Was it whose weapons are stronger or bigger? Or was there diplomacy used to help assuage Dictator Kim to put down his weapons?

I’d be very interested in knowing exactly what happened behind those closed doors. Perhaps, what we see in the news is a really all a big show or a play that was born of a secret negative society to make President Trump look stronger than he is. NO ONE really knows. If entire countries can think that a chemical attack on innocent children is people creating “fake news” to further their political ideations, then anything is possible in my mind.

How much of all of the governmental challenges of our nation is our personal problem to deal with and how much is your worry and concern actually helping the issues in politics?

What polarizes us as a community and country are strong, organic feelings that result in a combined voice of many. This unification is what calls us to a higher cause. We are not made stronger by polarizing our negativity and our truth to separate us from the rest of the world or society. We are made powerful by uniting with one another for a greater, more durable and positive cause.

I look at the world’s big causes right now and continue watching which ones are actually causing people to act and rise up in powerful oneness. The “me too” and the “children’s gun control” causes are the movements that are revealing dark lies and bringing light into our world to exposes and erradicate more darkness. The movements that separate us like White Supremacy and Religious rhetoric are only making the world polarized in a negative way.

One might argue that each are arguing for a cause and both have a right to an opinion. That might be true if one opinion didn’t harm people and the other liberate those harmed from abuse and murder. But, anyone who has eyes to see can see that humility and power can go hand in hand whenever the cause is just and is to protect the innocent and powerless.

Maybe It’s Time to Change What I Believe About God!

I watched a television show called “#Westworld,” that totally took me off-guard and changed my point of view for about 48 hours. The premise of the show is that a creator-inventor fabricated a fake Wild West with humanlike characters that people could pay large amounts of cash to experience a virtual world.

The writer #Michael_Crichton obviously metaphorically wrote a story of creation where each creature that is created and programmed forgets the day before and sets out on a new day with the intent to fulfill the script that had been programmed into his or her body.

However, these virtual characters must react with a new set of “visitors” from the outside world each day, who want to experience things like a old time shoot out, killing someone, having an affair with a prostitute, falling in love, or simply be a voyeur.

The twist happens when the characters that had been used and reprogrammed as other roles in the Westworld begin to self-actualize  and become humanlike.

My husband and I were kind of mesmerized for 24 hours and actually decided we wanted to watch the rest of the first season, when we realized that #ONDEMAND let us watch only the first episode for free and the rest would cost $29.99.  Then we decided against watching. We don’t like to watch a great deal of television. When we do, however, we want it to be part of the already expensive cable package we already pay for.

Long story short, I realized that I had gotten the lesson that I was to have received from watching the first show of the season. I am not a robot programmed to fulfill a purpose here on this Earth. I am an actualizad creative human being made in the image of the creator  but animated by the vast Spirit within, who gets to choose everyday whether I want to be a part of this amazing world lesson.

Yes, I do believe everyday is a choice. We can choose to move toward the light or allow our egos to drive us to making choices that negatively impact others on the Earth or who will eventually come to the Earth for similar lessons.

The majority of the people around us are making negative choices are all around us, being influenced by #negative_entities and operating solely on their egos. We see it in the president and his cronies. We see it in most of our large businesses and factory farms. We we it in the advertisements on television trying to make us believe in illusions more than fact. We often don’t imagine it, though, that there are, in the ether, negative spirits coercing us to move off of the path of light toward a more negative path.

However, if you understood that you could move past this daily challenge of right and wrong to a higher state of consciousness, in a place some call heaven, perhaps, you would find yourself making more choices like the Buddhists, who believe that selflessness is godly.

There was a time I thought that #Christianity was filled with people who were “godly.” But it seems that most of the mainstream Christian folks have turned their back on the greatest message of Jesus, which is to love and not judge others. Christians have become like the Sadducees and the Pharisees of the New Testament. And as Jesus is here today in the clouds, (the people fighting for the rights of downtrodden and helpless) turning over the tables in the Marketplace set up just outside the walls of the church. Leading the rebellion are those who have been abused by people calling themselves Christians, thinly veiled in narcissism, people abusing children, animals, people not as smart as them, and taking advantage of everyone and anything they can for self gain.

I have realized that I have a choice. I have to call it like it is in my life. I once proudly said I was a Christian, because I thought the word meant to believe in the words of Christ. Now, however, the word “Christianity” has come to mean dual-minded and self-righteous and judgmental and greedy. I want nothing of this kind of person. I will, however, maintain my beliefs that Jesus, the God-man, was the perfect role model and will continue to follow in His footsteps, but I will no longer call myself a Christian, for fear I might be lumped into the pile of ego-driven judges that drive the right wing and those fighting for the rights of the “good people” who want the world to be all white.

I want no part of it!

CREATING A LIFE WORTH LIVING SERIES, by Bo Sebastian #2

Releasing the Old

You can put periods at the end of sentences in your life. You can edit what you may. You can sift through all that you have collected. You can throw out or give away that which no longer serves you. But, in the end, what surfaces in your consciousness is what needs your greatest attention and most likely needs to be released.

Moving to a new home is one of the most terrifying changes anyone can face in life. Moving is even harder than divorce and facing a death of a loved one. Moving changes everything in your life. Every single thing!

* * *

During the days prior to my move to Florida, my heart, sometimes, felt as if the world had tromped on it and given it back to me to be revived. I had been travelling the road of moving for three months, and every day seemed to get more difficult.

One day, however, I decided, the difficulty that I had been perceiving must change NOW! Here’s what I did to make this change happen:

  1. I went through every room in my house and put aside, in a pile, every article of clothing, every kitchen gadget, electronic gismo, and beautiful thing I owned.
  2. I made three piles. One pile to give to someone who was in need, one pile to sell, and one pile to store in a place other than my home.
  3. I took down every piece of artwork and released all gifts that were from any exes in my life and sold them to the highest bidder.
  4. Lastly, I asked some friends for help.

Asking for help was probably the hardest part for me. We all must have our rocks that we lean on, once in a while. Three friends came to my aid the next morning to help me move the rest of the large articles.

What this process did was that it got rid of my extra weight that I had been trying to take with me on my move. So much of what I had gathered in my life was no longer needed or even served me. These articles were simply heavy weight that I needed to purge.

This process was ritualistic and wonderful. I laughed. I cried. Mostly, though, I released feelings and emotions I did not know that had been buried into the simple framework of my nostalgic things.

 Don’t Look Back

When all of my belongings were on the truck, my car had been hooked up to the moving trailer, and every last paper had been finalized for the sale of my house, my soul finally let go.

I got on a plane and headed for Fort Lauderdale International.

The following day, the moving truck arrived at my new home in Florida. My family helped me move into my apartment. I have not looked back since.

Life is amazing every day. I want it to stay this way—totally present, exotically rare, and perfectly wonderful.

I meditate every morning and also pray with fervor. I feel the guidance of Spirit with me 95% of the time. During the times of resistance or fear, I use simple affirmations to get me back on track.

In the following chapter, I will give you definitions and guidance as to the simplest ways to pray and the most effective directions to use the Laws of the Universe to benefit your unique life. Always moving you forward, never backward and with the knowledge of God Principles, you will inevitably surge toward your—individual—perfect path.

THIS SERIES WILL CONTINUE EVERY DAY. I WILL PUBLISH IT AT 10 AM EVERY MORNING FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND LET THEM KNOW IT IS A SERIES THAT WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES AS IT WILL YOURS.
