The Practice of Universal Loving-Kindness

As the world becomes increasingly polarized and the news stories are filled with hate, it is a wonderful reminder that we need to get back to practicing kindness.

We need to remember that we are all One Self. There is no “other.”

There is only one. There is an illusion of many, but just as all of the drops in the ocean are part of the same ocean, we are all the same Source energy, partially manifested in physical to give the appearance of many.

We are deeply connected to all that is. There is only an illusion of separation.

Offering love and kindness to others is an offer of love and kindness to ourselves.

I found this charming music video that reminds us of the benefits of practicing Universal Loving-Kindness.

What Happens After this Life?

by JonMark

This came through on 29 January 2004.

REJOICE in the Lord Always, AGAIN I say REJOICE (song stuck in my head).

Today has been a day of GREAT pondering for me.

On the way home on the train I began a long dialogue with myself about the “after life” and its existence. I must admit that a part of me truly fears death and this is where my faith appears to be lacking. The more I looked into the fear the more I realized it was not so much the act of dying but the perception of the finality of it all.

Whether you believe in the resurrection of the body or in the reincarnation of the soul it all conveys the same theme.  The mutual theme is that this life, once it is over, is not the end of our being-ness, there is more to come.

No one has ever come back and proclaimed what it is truly like on the “other side” of this life. Many have had glimpses of what the next world looks like and have documented them for us to read. In my own personal spiritual life I have spoken with souls that have crossed over and yet I have yet to be met face to face by one who would tell me of the other side of this life.

Let us ponder that just for a moment. This is it! Once we are done then we are done, finé, finete, finito,over and done with. But is it really?

I use this example to make a very important point. In all things, and in all ways we are told to live this day, as it is our last. Yet conversely, if we live every day, as it is our last, are we not merging our consciousness into the eternal now that does not end but goes on and on? Are we not reaching that place of “at-one-ment (atonement) that we hear so much about in the Bible?

Stop Multi-tasking — Start Being Present

I recently observed someone who had visitors. While the visitors were there, she had the television on and was splitting her attention between visitors and TV. In addition, she was also taking calls on her land line and her mobile phone – sometimes both at the same time. When she was talking to someone on the mobile (while the visitors were sitting quietly, but the TV was loud), another call was coming in on the mobile, so she cut off the call in order to take the second call, even though she did not EVEN know who the second caller was.

When I was driving home at about 11:00 PM a couple of nights ago, there was a car driving erratically on the freeway, weaving badly. I wanted to get past him as soon as possible to avoid an accident. As I passed, it was clear he was texting while driving 70 MPH on the freeway.

When I go through the checkout stand at the grocery store, I observe the person in front of me talking loudly on the cell phone about details of her personal life that the rest of us did not need to hear. As she carried on the conversation, she did not speak to the cashier who was waiting on her. She did not even acknowledge the clerk’s existence. Ninety percent (perhaps more) of her attention was directed toward telling her sordid story to the other person on the phone.

All of these people are examples of someone putting their attention somewhere other than HERE AND NOW.

As I was thinking about this article, my guidance came through on June 17, 2009. Here is what they said:

Dear Ones,

So many of you are desperately seeking something by trying to do more and more. You think that if you keep fitting more DOING into your time that you will get closer to the something you seek. It is actually creating a wider separation between you and the something you seek.

Some of you seek approval. This approval could come in the form of admiration by others, people telling you that you do a good job, or telling you how clever you are, how nice you are, how funny you are. No matter what form of approval you seek, you are seeking it to validate your worthiness so that YOU can truly believe that you are “good enough.” If you are seeking this kind of validation, it is likely that there would never be enough approval to convince you that you no longer need to seek approval.

Some of you are seeking control. The kind of control you seek is an illusion. You think that if you just do enough, you can control everything that happens and have everything be exactly as you prefer. Do you not realize that Source has ability to override your control at anytime? Do you not realize that by seeking control, you are not leaving room for the unexpected miracles of life to flow in? Those who seek control are resisting the benevolent flow of life.

Some of you are seeking security, which is a variation of control. The security you seek may be in the form of “safety.” If you are working hard to seek safety then you do not trust Source to keep you safe. Seeking safety may mean you believe the world is not safe. Do not forget that your life experience will validate your core beliefs. If you believe it is not safe, you will experience “not safe.”

Some of you are seeking security in the form of “money.” Again, we are sure you can easily see that seeking security in the form of money is a reflection of a core belief that “there is not enough.” Do you not yet know that Source is infinitely abundant? We shall repeat, for this is important. Source is infinitely abundant. Infinitely abundant.

A long time ago, someone who was paying attention heard the words “Be still and know that I am.” Source tells us to be still — be present — and remember that Source is all that is. Infinitely abundant. Take comfort in that.

If you can give up your busy-ness, be still, be present, you will realize you already are all that you seek. You are part of Source yourself. In ancient times they used the term “child of God” to express the knowledge that they are one with Source. It has since become a term used to emphasize separation between self and God.

There is no separation. There is only one. One Source. One “all-that-is.” There is no need for so much activity. Be still. Know that Source is all. Relax into this knowledge and you will realize there is nothing to seek.

Welcoming to Oneness

by JonMark

Another Channeling I received — in January 2004

Concept for you to ponder.  What if, as you channel your ideas, you realize we are nothing more than the ‘communal’ voice of the level (dimension) ‘above’ the higher self.

Think of our verbs, our nouns, and our pronouns as nothing more than the communal voice.  Regardless of the name by which you call us — be it “Sung Tu” or “Fred” or any other name — we are the same Universal Consciousness.

We are admonishing you to be open to this new way of thought and allow it to empower you as you embrace this new concept.  We feel it is important for you to consider the beings that you channelled at one time to be the utterances.

So it is possible to have the singular emanation which comes from the higher self of a particular human being also be from the greater whole.  During the early part of the previous century, there were many great minds who spoke of spiritual matters, but they over stratified

First, we would have you discourse with others on “Oneness.”  The truth is that there is no difference between the white man and the brown man.  We feel it is not driven home enough on your dimension.

There are many who agreed to be a part of the teaching of oneness before entering this plane and have chosen another way.  They have forgotten…. Continue reading

Change is With You

by JonMark

I received this from Spirit on 14 September 2008.


Breathe with us for a moment and allow your mind to entertain the idea of there being a new form of energy around you and soon to be running through you. When we say through you, we mean on all levels, in all dimensions and all times.

Know that the healing you seek is but a thought away. Know that the prosperity you seek is but a thought a way. Know that a new love that you seek is only a thought away. So we ask you now, what are you thinking? Wherein do your thoughts lay?

We know you realize and you have all heard for many years now that you exist in only but one dimension of hundreds upon thousand of dimensions. There are not just 12, there are not just 100 there are more than you can count. Whether you believe it or not does not change any of this, for what is, IS.

Many modern day prophets cry out that your lives are about to change over these next few days, weeks, months and even years. In fact, we do not know of a time when change is not happening somewhere in the sphere of your being. Your very cells are changing this very instant. Your brain cells are working overtime as you read this trying to comprehend where we are going next, what thought will be next.
