Saturating and Consumed

             Because I have disorders (and disordered thinking), my learning tends to be quite different from the way others interpret their lessons.

             Food and cooking are just a couple of examples that I’m still struggling with.  However, I am beginning to comprehend quite a few kitchen concepts.  And today’s message had a very culinary quality about it, which made perfect sense (to me).

Absorption

             When we leave a soup on to simmer all day, every morsel is soaking up the flavors of all the goodness around it.  When we spend time in loving situations (including Self-Care), and seek out beauty, we soak in all of that lovingkindness.

             The recommendation right now is to leave guilt, stress-thinking, and competition behind.  Seeking out the nurturing waves of Positivity which will seep into our souls and heal us.

             The other direction we’re receiving is to leave our regular rotation around the card altar and heed the words on my second newly-flipped August page.  (This illustration wasn’t the best, so I’ve replaced it.)

"The love I give is the love I receive."

The love I give
is the love I receive.”

“I accept myself totally and completely.

As I love and accept myself exactly as I am, right here and right now with all of my so-called flaws and imperfections, I find it easier to accept others in the same way.

When I put conditions on my love, for myself or others, then I am not loving freely.  ‘I will love if,’ is not love.  It is control.

 I am learning to release the need to control others and allow them the freedom to be who they are.

I am learning to create peace within, and I am doing the best that I can with the understanding, knowledge, and awareness that I have at this time.

As I open my consciousness to tap unconditional love, I connect with new levels of spiritual power.  I see a blanket of benevolence covering the planet, helping to transform Earth’s consciousness from fear to love.”

Book Number 8 in her series

Book Number 8 in her series

             All 825 pages of it.  If we still had bathroom scales, I’d weigh it for you.  I love reading things with this much heft to them, I really do.

One thought on “Saturating and Consumed

  1. Wow. She must be making them a lot of money. Publishers rarely allow authors to write books of that heft.

    I definitely need less stress. Before I had even eaten my breakfast I heard people (my new neighbors are moving in) in my backyard discussing about whether or not to bring their fence and shed up against the tree. My tree. About 40 feet inside my property line. I plastered a smile on my face and went out in my pajamas, no less, to say, “Hi!”. They can’t believe that my property line would be so far into ‘their’ yard. *sigh* There was no nastiness, thank goodness, they seem nice enough. But they also didn’t believe me. Guess we’ll be weedwacking today to find the survey stake at the back of the property. And I’m going to see if I can find the original survey of our property. Not a great way to meet the new neighbors. They will also be the first around here to fence in their yard. None of us have and the kids just ran from yard to yard playing or riding their bikes. The times they are a-changing.

    Since her first book exploded out the gates, she’s basically been able to do whatever she likes, no one “allows” her anything. Also, she says that it takes her four full years to write one. So, yeah, that might be equal to other authors dropping one a year that is a quarter of the size.
