Four Truths of Peace

The Four Truths of  Peace

Sept. 25, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Last week, I admitted that I knew nothing about peace, what it was or how to obtain it. On behave of all of us, I asked to know.

This week, I received an answer. To know peace, we must know—really know—these four truths:

  1. there is nothing to seek; we were given everything at the moment of our creation; we already have what we seek; we already have everything;
  2. everything is within us;
  3. we are all connected to each other, to God, to all life and to all things;
  4. we are all one; we come from the same Source and are made of the same materials.

To know these four—really know these four—is to know everything.

The question becomes: how do we know—really know—these four truths?

We go to the angels and ask.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

Thank you for answering our question about peace so promptly. The quickness of the answer is greatly appreciated.

We are willing to know—really know—these Four Truths of Peace.

Please lead us to this knowing. Please guide us to understanding, acceptance, and then, action.

Help us to live in such a way that we demonstrate these Four Truths from moment to moment.

Thank you.

And so it is.

Win and to hell with the consequences

AskAngelsCoach

Sept. 19, 2017

Hi Everyone,

If there was ever a time, all of us need to call upon the angels, archangels and company of heaven it is now.

I heard pieces of the speech the current occupant of the US White House said today, Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at the United Nations meeting in New York City, USA.

There is no doubt in my mind that this present occupant will do exactly what he says he wants to do: given any reason, he will destroy 27 million people and to hell with the consequences.

Winning and to hell with the consequences

At the moment, there are many world leaders just like this current occupant. They believe that winning at any price is okay as long as they and their families don’t have to pay the price of winning and don’t have to face those consequences.

I am still in shock that so many Americans supported this occupant even though he gave red flag after red flag during his campaign speeches.

For example, he said he loved war. No one asked what kind of war he loved. Did he love the Hollywood version where all the soldiers are always in clean, freshly pressed uniforms, have obviously received dental and other health care and have had enough sleep and food? Or, did he love the real war where body after body comes home in black body bags and real soldiers come back disabled or mentally ill?

For example, he said he admired Putin. How can anyone who understands American democracy admire a communist dictator or any kind of dictator?

No one challenged him about this. Not one person.

For example, when fighting broke out in his gatherings, not once did he stop and say to the fighters:

” This is America. We settle things at the ballot box, or in the court system. There will be no fighting at my events.”

Again, no one challenged his lack of appropriate response.

The American Press

Where was the American press, the Fourth Estate, the ones the Founding Fathers depended on to ask the hard questions and demand answers, to point out the facts and to broadcast truth?

Instead of asking questions and demanding answers, the newsmen were gathering points for getting their little gold statues, winning advertising dollars at any price, doing what so many world leaders at the moment including the present occupier of the White House: winning at any price and to hell with the consequences.

We, also, observe example after example of corporate leaders being willing to win at any price so long as they and their families don’t have to endure the consequences.

My Responsibility

Jessi Khohihagen wrote in today’s Life Book Blog http://mylifebook.com/blog/the-other-person-is-never-the-problem/

”Everything that upsets us about others can lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves, if we choose it.

No matter how much they irritate us, don’t share our same beliefs, or don’t do things the way we like, we are ultimately responsible for how we choose to respond (and for the consequences those responses have on our lives).

And this doesn’t only mean our external, verbal responses. It means our inner responses — the mental, emotional, energetic reactions that are triggered in the deepest parts of our being, and the destruction (or growth) these responses can cause in our lives.”

I choose to respond to this morning’s speech by remembering that nothing is free and everything comes at a price.

I do not know the cost of peace. It might be a cost I’m not willing to pay. Recall that the American president, President Richard Nixon said that “peace is greater than the absence of war”.

I do not know what peace is. I doubt that anyone knows. I cannot recall a time when this planet was without war.

Martin Luther King and Gandhi pointed the way to non-violence, not peace. Non-violence is not peace.

So, my responsibility is to find out what real peace is, and make that such a powerful part of the inner me that I continuously reflect this in the outer world.

The only way I know to do this is to ask the angels, archangels, and company of heaven for help.

Call to the Angels

Angels, Archangels, Company of Heaven,

Thank you for answering my call. I invite all humans to be part of this call and its consequences.

I know that you, the heavenly beings, know how dire the situation on this planet is: we, who live on a lovely, gracious planet that supplies us with an abundance of all good are in big trouble and have been for many generations.

Many of us humans have known for a very long time that there is no excuse for the famine, thirst, and hostility that exists on our planet. We have known for a very long time that there is more than enough of all good for everyone to be filled to overflowing, and there still be plenty left over.

We have known that it is many of our own rules and our obedience to them that have created hate-filled situations.

Lead us to right action and right knowing so that everyone on this planet experiences living in the overflow of all good, including the all good of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.

Help us to understand what true peace is and the cost of that peace. It might be a cost that all of us are more than willing to pay.

For example, part of the price of peace might be giving up beliefs and rules that don’t make peace.

Perhaps, peace is a very simple, easy thing to achieve.

We, the company of the planet Earth, don’t know.

Help us know.

Thank you.

And, so it is.

Hearing the Voice

Feb. 16, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Where can we go to hear the voice of Mother/Father God? Where can we go listen and know that what we hear is specifically meant for us?

We go to the inner us.

This is where Mother/Father God dwells. On the inside of us is where Mother/Father God speaks specifically to us and to our situation.

This is where faith blooms and hope ignites.

Get to the Inside
We get to the inside by turning from the outer and all of its distractions. Distractions include conversations, reading materials, electronic devices and other day-to-day activities.

We, also, turn from our emotions and thoughts¸ especially the feelings of fear and dread.

No. Not easy.

Entering the Quiet
Mediation in all its forms—walking meditation, yoga, tai-chi—all help us become still.

However, the best way to become quiet is to simply do that: become quiet, and then, ask to hear.

Don’t expect messages to come automatically; ask to hear.

As you’ve probably guessed, I like to ask the angels of all of us.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are so very grateful that we can go to you and ask.

It is with great thanksgiving that we open to being with you and to knowing that all we have to do is ask.

So, today we ask that we clearly receive the messages that Mother/Father God and you, the angels, have for us.

We ask that we be given the ability to understand what is said.

We know that we are constantly being given information, ideas, energy and support.

We know that we are protected. We know that no weapon formed against us can survive.

Most of all, we know there is a Power for Good in the Universe and that by asking we set this power into use.

We know that we were given the ability to use this Power for Good so that good flows in, as and through us; so that we live in the overflow of all good; and, so that everything in our world is good.

This knowing fills us with great joy and with peace.

We go forth with confidence knowing that because we ask, we receive and knowing that all is well and will continue to be so.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas Challenge—silently greet everyone you meet with:

You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Choose Peace

June 8, 2015

Hi Everyone,

Today, I choose peace. Sounds like a simple, easy choice doesn’t it?

We all know that it’s not.

To choose peace, I am willing to stop remembering and stop focusing on causes of upset and the results of upset:

  • Blame
  • Shame
  • Irritation
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Depression
  • Illness
  • And, anything that takes my freedom.

Instead, I am willing to  focus on my choice: peace, a peace flows in my mind, in my heart, in my body and flows from those places into:

  • my home,
  • my workplace,
  • my relationships,
  • my travels
  • and all that I be, do and have.

Today, I choose peace and all that peace brings:

  • Health
  • Prosperity
  • Freedom
  • Loving relationships
  • And a deep connection to the spirit world.

Today, I choose peace.

To have that I am willing to receive and accept support from the angels of all of us.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

We are so grateful that you are part of our world, that you surround us and enfold us with your love, peace and protection.

Today, angels, we choose peace. We open our hearts, our minds and our bodies to receive, accept and give peace.

Peace, we breathe it in, and breathe it out. Peace is who we choose to be.

As we live this day, help us to remember that for today, we choose peace.

We remember that peace is who we are, what we are and how we are.

Angels of all of us,

Help us get to the source of our upsets, that which brings us the opposite of peace: anger, irritation, fear, etc.

Help us to heal this source; to send it out of our experience; and out of our memory.

This day, guide us to be, do and have our choice: peace.

With love and gratitude, we thank you for all that you do for us. We thank you for your service.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Work Worsens

Jan. 27, 2015

Hi Everyone,

About a year or so ago, about the time of the U.S. government shutdown, a group of American federal (government) employees came to me for help.

These are not the folks in Washington, D.C. who earn well over $100,000 a year, but folks earning less than $50,000 a year with families to support.

The loss of income was creating havoc so we asked the angels for help in increasing income.

When the shutdown ended and certain government employees were given their lost wages, the group thought their work troubles were over. They returned yesterday.

Work Worsens
It seems that work has gotten worse. Their stress has multiplied many times. Their quotas—how much they are to get done in an hour—have increased. Their managers and bosses—never pleasant people before—have gotten meaner and nastier. This seems to be the result of recent budget cuts by the Congress; however, none in the group were certain of the cause.

Heart-felt Desires
After much discussion—this took most of Monday—the group decided on three heart-felt desires:

  1. To survive this present circumstance physically, mentally and emotionally healthy and strong
  2. To be kind, compassionate and empathic to all involved in this situation including bosses and managers
  3. And, to have work that brings joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts each prefers.

Yes. A tall order. One that most certainly will take the help of the angels. Let’s ask them now.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful for your presence. We give thanks for your support and nurturance. Today, we ask for guidance.

Angels of all of us,
We know you are always near and that you know the circumstances and situations of our life. We need not repeat the details. You know them. You witnessed them. You are aware of what is happening in our work life.

We ask for guidance about how to survive and relieve this situation. We ask that you remind us of all the actions we must to do rid ourselves of stress and the ugly thoughts and reactions that occur when humans are overworked and under compensated.  We thank you for these reminders and encouragements.

We ask for support in being kind and compassionate to those who are causing the stressful situations and to all those who are involved in this experience. Help us to respond correctly but pleasantly. Help us to put out the fires instead of expanding them. Help us be the clean, clear waters of peace.

We ask for help in finding work that brings us joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts we prefer. Most of us don’t want to leave our present employer. However, we recognize that this might be necessary. Guide us to the right work environment and work for us. Help us to make good decisions. Help us to let go with ease, doing the least harm possible.

We thank you for helping us meet this challenge and to have serenity. That is, we recognize what we can and cannot change; we do what is necessary for us to be in the flow of love.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Law of Congruency

Master of Truth Recognition: Faith of God

August 31, 2014

Hello,

Part 2, Becoming a Master of Truth Recognition, starts with recognizing that at the very core of each of us there exists this place of perfect peace and purity where all things are known.

This place is called by many names. It is the place inside of us where God dwells.

Masters of Truth Recognition turn inward to this place often.

They do this so that they will be in peace, in balance and in alignment with the will of God for the greater good of all.

Peace, balance and alignment are necessary as one completes Part 2: Observing Others and Knowing Their Truth.

Faith In or Of

To enter this place, it’s necessary to do two things:

  • Change one not-so-little thought: “I have faith in God”.

Instead, change that thought and statement to, “I have the faith of God”.

Everything changes. By stating this, all of a sudden, you recognize that you have the power and other abilities of God.

Train your Self to think once an hour: “I have the faith, knowing and belief of God.”

  • Turn your life over to God. Do this by thinking and speaking first thing at awakening, at noon, and at dinner:
    • “I know that God is with me this day, guiding and directing my actions”
    • and right before going to sleep, think and say: “God, I thank you for all the good of this day;
    • I release all the negative.
    • I know that during my rest, you will renew, rejuvenate, restore and recreate anything in my body, mind, emotions and spirit that requires this work. I know that you will remove everything that doesn’t belong.
    • Most of all, I know you will place in my mind and intuition, and will awaken my empathic ability so that I have all the knowing, strength and courage to set aside my will and do your will in this coming day.
    • I thank you God and so it is.”

Yes. We need the help of the angels to accomplish this change.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

Wow! Angels. I never thought I would be enough to have the faith of God. Wow! Faith of God  changes everything.

I am so very grateful. I have the faith of God.

That means I know that I can create and organize the life that God wants for me:

  • a life of prosperity, health, empowering relationships and a life in which I use my special bundle of talents, abilities and skills to do good for my family, communities and world.
  • that I know beyond the tiniest shadow of a doubt that I can have whatever my heart and soul desire (the will of God). What a great feeling and a great knowing.

As I grow into being a Master of Truth Recognition, the faith of God will support and guide me. I relax into the faith of God. What a great thing!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Peace,

Barbara
