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).
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.)
“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.”

is this view of what I just picked up from the hold shelves of my local library.
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.
