Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly.
As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."
In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."
All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet? What reflection do others see when they look at you?
TODAY'S INSPIRATIONAL POEM
The Time is Now
~ Author Unknown
If you are ever going to love me,
Love me now, while I can know
The sweet and tender feelings
Which from true affection flow,
Love me now while I am living,
Do not wait until I'm gone
And then have it chiseled in marble,
Sweet words on ice-cold stone.
If you have tender thoughts of me,
Please tell me now.
If you wait until I m sleeping,
Never to awaken,
There will be death between us,
and I won't hear you then.
So, if you love me, even a little bit,
Let me know it while I am living
So I can treasure it.
"When we take one step toward God,
He takes seven steps toward us."
-- Hindu Proverb~
TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE
It's Time To End The Fear ...
(Another Way Of Looking And Learning About It)
by Michael Bonamassa, Sr.
It seems that our children today are so far advanced than those during the days of my growing up years. I know that this has a lot to do with the computer and advancements in technology, however, in watching these children and my grand children, and the people of today, it seems like they and the majority of people today are focusing their attention mainly on intellectual development.
There seems to be an increased desire to engage in educational courses and to progress in the educational field. Indeed, this is a matter of great pride. However, together with the intellect, it's extremely important for them to focus on the development of our mind. These are the two wheels on the motor of life ... the "mind" and the "intellect." If they are not balanced, one is fast and one is slow, and as a result, one is powerful while the other is weak. This imbalance will prevent a person to progress successfully in life.
Together with the development of the intellect and being expert in our career and work, we must also pay attention to our intention to increasing the natural powers of the mind so that the mind can become positive and be able to hold the elevated force to liberate ourselves from the chaos and stress of the ways and the problems of our world.
Everything in the Universe is connected because everything ... bar none ... is "energy." Our planet is connected to our solar system and our solar system is connected to the galaxy, our galaxy is connected to the billions of other galaxies in the Universe.
Many, if not most, of the media specials ... including the Internet and even the movies ... continue to spread doom and gloom prophecies and predictions of 2012 and the Mayan calendar ending on December 21st. As a result, fear is running rampant. If you still aren't aware of it, all you have to do is look around at what's happening in the world, even in your local surroundings, and you'll see that everywhere you look, the rigid frameworks that once dictated the way nations, cultures, and individuals experienced themselves in our 3rd dimensional societies are disintegrating. Governmental and financial structures are crumbling beneath the weight of centuries of misinformation, mistrust and greed, and people the world over are not only yearning for, but in many cases actively demanding a new order based on truth, transparency, compassion, inclusion and love. All of this gives plenty of fodder to the doom and gloom prophets to promote this fear.
The problem is that the closer we get to 12-12-12, the more the discomfort, anxiety, and sense of urgency will be rising to the surface because at this point in the time continuum, we are all, quite literally, running out of time to play in the third dimension. But, this is "good", not "bad" and that's the way we should be looking at it. Remember ... "when we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change."
A deep internal shift is stirring as the long-promised awakening is truly manifesting. Many of us are suddenly finding ourselves experiencing feelings, situations, and emotions that we have no frame of reference. In simple terms, the format, structures and framework right down to the thoughts we think, and the emotions we feel, are changing.
We are now shifting into a fourth dimensional consciousness and will accelerate further into a fifth dimensional experience. However, even though most people on the planet are not prepared for this shift, it is nonetheless happening. And for those who are unaware of what’s going on, it will not be an easy or comfortable transition. Look around you and you'll easily recognize who I'm talking about ... they are those people who are lost in materialism and the extremeness of their views, whether they be religious, societal or political in nature.
Yet, this can be a wonderful, enjoyable time as well. With some basic information about what the shift is, and an understanding of what “dimensions” are, there are simple tools to help manage our thoughts and feelings. Everyone has the ability to evolve to greater consciousness and move gracefully and joyfully into these higher vibrational realms.
In order to accelerate ascension as a multi-dimensional being in this human form, the beings of higher consciousness have constructed a tangible pathway. This pathway is comprised of a number of steps, specifically designed to guide us happily and safely from the “everything that we are not and never were” restriction of the 3rd dimension, to the freedom and fullness of “all that we truly are” in the upper 4th and 5th dimensions, to which we are most assuredly and inescapably heading.
One way of looking and achieving success in the ascension process can be found through the "mastering of alchemy." I believe no one can explain it better than Jeff Self, the founder of Mastering Alchemy (www.masteringalchemy.com), and an international speaker and author who has been leading seminars and teaching healing, clairvoyance and personal energy management courses since 1980. If you are new to alchemy and would like to learn more about what it is all about and how it might benefit you, you will learn the complete pathway to Mastering Alchemy by clicking here. I might add that this will take you to a page of the website at which you must click on the video with Jim Self in it at the bottom of the page. Know that the video is a 49 minute video that you might want to leave until you have enough spare time to sit at your computer to view it in its entirety.

The Journey Within
All my actions today and in this very moment are focused on you who is reading this ... every word, every expression. I dedicate everything to you through this article and thus
all my actions are focused on YOU.
Each of my words in this article is inspired by man's suffering and inability to free himself from pain. In our search for happiness as humans, we have crossed boundaries, built monuments, sailed through unknown seas, reached the moon, wandered through the stars, and built devices to observe the galaxies. The problem is that in this search for happiness, we have always searched outside ourselves.
Although we are told that the capacity for happiness resides within ourselves, we are still waiting for someone to build a ship that can make the journey to the depths of our inner self, when only we can do it by balancing the energy of the Ego with that of our Souls.

(a channeled vignette)
The Christ Consciousness Of Oneness
Slowly, but surely, you are coming to the understanding that you ... as SOULs ... Spirits Of Unconditional Love ... are evolving to the world of "unconditional love". Before you can attain this new level of "being," you have to achieve that level of awareness ... that state of consciousness called the "Christ Consciousness of Oneness."
You see, you are not evolving as a "Soul" ... an individual Soul ... because that still places you in separateness. You are evolving as the Soul of All That Is ... as a collective consciousness where you have reached the realization that you are ONE with everything ... ONE with the Creator ... the Source ... God! It is in achieving this level that you evolve from the world of total physicality and fear to the world of the absolute Light and Love. It is in this re-membering as a "whole" that you will use the lessons of conditional love to fully understand the Love of All That Is ... absolute love ... thereby continuing your evolution to newer states of "being".
This is why you speak of moving to a different dimension ... a dimension where you can live in the physical while being in the state of consciousness of who you really are. This is where you will experience a "new beginning" in the infinity of change and into experiences that may or may not involve the tools of the "physical body," "time and space," or "duality" ... depending upon your choosing through the natural Law of Free Will that will still prevail.
Know that a true Heaven on Earth will only take place fully when the collective majority have reached this state of awareness ... this state of re-membering who you really are ... this state of Oneness ... and have crossed the bridge of the 4th dimension into the 5th ... something that has yet to be fully understood by many.
For this reason, it is necessary for you to go through this period of turmoil (a time of tribulation) until you open your spiritual eyes to see and release the "judgment" which is inherent in "conditional love". You have been in conditional love since you were knee-high to a grasshopper beginning with the belief of a Santa Claus, and it is now time to learn from its lessons and move on. When and until you finally reach that point of awakening and awareness ... that point of re-membering that body is not who you are ... you will continue to be shown more and more acts of judgment through an increasing demonstrative level until you finally reach the conclusion that this is not for your greatest good.
For this reason, you are experiencing things in this millineum that you have never experienced before ... or even dreamed of ... prior to this time. Things like mother's discarding new borns in trash dumpsters, pre-teen children committing sex crimes, teen students maiming and killing classmates, raping and abuse of the elderly, and finally, the tainting of your nation's reputation which was built by welcoming the sick and the poor and honoring the inherent human rights of all people, and last, but not least, the animalistic terrorist attrocities that defie even the most primitive form of humaness.
It is time dear ones ... time to awaken, discover and become aware that you are not "bodies with souls" ... humans having a spiritual experience, but rather "souls with bodies" ... souls having a human experience. Time to let go of "conditional love" and its inherent judgment and embrace "absolute (unconditional) love" is getting short.
Listen to your heart and its wisdom;
it will tell you what it needs ...
listen, take heed.and act on it!

A Special Blessing to You and Yours ...
Until next week ...
These things, we warmly wish for you-
May you have a sunbeam to warm you,
Have a moonbeam to charm you,
And a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you.
Love and Light,
