Anger And Joy – It’s All Good

Art by Maria Chambers

Theres ‘s an old African saying that I made up that goes like this:  There is no such thing as being too happy or too angry.  Now some may take umbrage with that, immediately warning that someone will pay for it.  That the angry person will harm someone else or themselves. Or the happy person will be throwing salt into the wounds of those who are less than joyful.

Expressing Our Soul

Art by Maria Chambers

Some people say they are not creative or expressive. But in actuality, they are expressing all the time. Perhaps not in the traditional way we know that to be, through an art form, music, writing, theatre and other forms. But being in physical is a form of expression. Our body is expressing on our behalf all the time. It expresses repressed emotions in the form of illness and imbalance. Same for our mind. And our life. Whatever we see around us in our environment, the people, the events in our personal lives, are all forms of expression, telling the story of our life. Continue reading

True Passion

Years ago when in my twenties, I left New Jersey and a controlling Greek father behind, and drove, with a college boyfriend, to a small midwest town named Iron River, Wisconsin.

log-cabinWe lived for almost a year in a small cabin type home in the woods, along with another young couple.  What could be more exciting and new?

What started out as just a vacation ended up being more.  I worked at the local fishing pole factory, since jobs there were scarce.  My days involved wrapping wire around fishing poles, and inadvertently inhaling solvent based glue without proper ventilation. (Back in the early 70’s). Continue reading

There’s No Price To Pay

It’s o.k. to feel good.  Now, on face value, that statement may seem self evident.  But when you consider our history as humans, and even our own personal history from this lifetime, feeling good seemed to always come at a price.  Some kind of compromise was involved.

I’m sure you are familiar with the statement, “no pain, no gain.” Or “laugh today, cry tomorrow” or “if it tastes that good it must be bad for you.”. How about ” sinfully good” or “guilty pleasures?”. We often ratchet back feeling too good, especially if there is someone close to us that doesn’t, or even in ‘consideration’ of those in the world who we perceive as suffering.. We allow ourselves just so much…just so much joy, whether it is in the form of money, health, good food, or just feeling good.  It’s o.k. to feel good.  There doesn’t even have to be a reason, really.  Haven’t you just felt good, and things didn’t necessarily need to change a bit in your life?  You are most likely experiencing that more and more.  People around you may be wondering what has gotten into you!  What cult have you joined?  How can you possible feel good when you look at what’s going on in the world?

Well mostly the rest of the world is still in suffering mode.  It has become very addictive to play victim, of family, of their job, of the economy, of the government, of illness, of their emotions.  We know what that’s like.  We are still sometimes in that knee jerk response to life.  It’s hard not to be.  But the difference is that we now know we have a choice in how we want to perceive things.

 For example, while it does feel at times that we are just along for the ride relative to this ascension process, and while it seems we have little control as the human self, as our body and emotions go through a major transformation, we are realizing that we are not just these human selves, that we are also our soul and our soul initiated this process.  It wasn’t just thrust on us.

We are advanced souls and we wanted to be the first to go through this process, where we, as spirit, integrate and live intimately within the human body.  We ascend and remain here on the Planet.  Then from that place we can use our avatar abilities like never before.

But as the human we have had such a history of struggle, we tend to carry that with us into this process.  So when we have those moments of feeling good, we may tend to temper them.  When I was in the ‘work force’ I would feign sickness to take a day off.  I didn’t have vacation days, so I had to justify it to my employers.  But other times I would genuinely get sick so that I could justify not doing something my heart wasn’t into.  This is a pervasive coping mechanism in our world.

Why?  Because we can’t allow ourselves to feel good, and sometimes that involves saying no to outside demands on our time and energy.  I spent years, decades going through the motions at the Christmas holidays especially, with friends and family.  I finally extricated myself from the traditions I no longer felt connected to.  Even though there was some residual guilt.  But I told myself I’ll live with some temporary feelings of guilt, but I no longer need to get sick to get out of commitments.

This also applies to no longer needing to take on any energies or emotions on behalf of others.

What happens often when we begin to feel good, whether it is emotionally or physically, is we begin thinking we should use that energy, whether it’s to do some chores, whether it’s to take care of someone or an obligation.  It’s like when someone wins the lottery and their first impulse is to give some of their money to charity or to their friends or their family before they spend any of it on themselves.

The same can be happening emotionally, giving away the energy that we need to spend on ourselves.  And then if we choose we can share the overage with others.

And of course our mind will try to rain on our parade without us involving anyone else.  It will try to convince us that those feelings are false, and that we are just kidding ourselves.  That the sooner we get back to reality the better.

But the feelings of joy are who we really are.   Not the feelings of guilt or obligation.

We are in the process of integrating our dark and our light.  It’s not about hiding from our feelings.  But as ascending masters, we are understanding more and more it’s also about owning only the feelings we want.  We get to choose if we want to own the guilt or pain as our truth.  It’s always our choice to believe that other’s needs come first, or that we are not worthy of feeling unconditional love from our own soul.

It’s a bold human who chooses to feel joy without a price to pay.
