The world needs you in it, trying to solve some of the problems with grace as well as intentional, spiritual ways. In this, The Way of Spirit book is a guide to knowing how to do that with joy.
Sometimes, though, you may require some assistance in ensuring that you don’t overextend yourself, or that you don’t—on the other end of the spectrum—become overly dismissive of the terrible things in your world. The key is for your best self to have this purpose in its sights: to ensure that the world that you know is as well assisted as possible without feeling that you have to solve everything. In this, there’s reason to see how you might interpret world events in ways that both aid in your growth and bring you contentment rather than suffering.
When the world was created, it spiraled along with the grace of many beings who worshipped all things. The world took a while to invent, so as to insure that it was, above all, of good intent. How does one rise to the challenge of creating a world in which one can thrive and also feel pain?
“It’s going to be somewhat of a characteristic of life,” they considered, “that suffering is inherent. After all, we were not born of singular Goodness, as we were conceived, too, with the premise that sometimes bad things happen. This is our purpose: to create a world in which others can thrive without the need to feal badly too often when terrible things happen.” In this, they created the world, and in this, you create every day without needing too often to learn things that are terrible lessons.
When things happen in ways that feal terrible, say to yourself: “This is part of my creation. This is something I need to figure out and allow into my thinking as something I’m creating.”
However, there’s never any reason to feal badly about these creations, unless you have been the direct cause of the terrible event. In this, there is reason to look at your actions and correct some things about yourself. But in many cases, there’s reason to say, “It’s terrible, I can’t do anything about this, and I will continue to strive to do my part in whatever part of my world I have control over, to be helping out when I can, so that in total, we will all do things that will help resolve the world crises.”
In this, the terrible things will feel a bit smaller, and you will find that in this offering of love to the world, you will feel better, as well as find in the terrible things some good that will come from them, as all things work towards good in the long run. You can’t see this from your perspective, but they do, and we will ensure that in your future you will see all good come from all bad things. So do so.
The way of spirit requires your best self to thrive. It’s not just something that you consider perfect, your best self. It’s something that you consider as well to be contrary. We’ll explain.
The contrary self is perhaps the most important thing that you need to be acquainted with in your life. The major disputes of the world are not because of contrary actions or even contrary thinking: it’s due to lack of contrary individuals like yourselves dredging up the basic ideas that have to do with human health, service to others, and redemption of the planetary goals in regard to how you use as well as value the earth and all of its many resources.
All the things that you feel are required in the world are required in the world. That’s what we call your contrary self moving you into directions that are required to live in better as well as more compassionate ways.
Now, in getting to the point of realizing the contrary self, you will need to allow yourself to choose a contrary path, which we will help you realize in The Way of Spirit book. So see this as an endorsement by Rose to use the book to connect with not just your contrary self, but to realize also the path in which you can create the most spontaneous as well as fully alive self that you possibly can. We hope you will! Enjoy!
The recent Grammy broadcast featured a ton of great musical performances, two of which provided an interesting contrast. As a friend noted,
“Annie Lennox rocked the Grammy’s with more Inner Fire, Heat and Passion than 30 horn-headed, masked dancers and 1 sadly clad Madonna. Madonna paved the way for many of us to take our own power, where did she lose her way so badly? In the role model category for my generation – Annie’s got her wrapped.”
This is where the families of intent information is so helpful—orienting generalizations to help us find our intent in life–our soul’s design for expression. And the families of intent can also help us better understand others.
Annie and Madonna have slightly different intents. Annie is an “artistic pot-stirrer” (Sumari-Sumafi/Zuli aligned), not an outright “reformer artistic pot-stirrer” (Zuli-Sumari/Vold aligned) like Madonna. Both are “imagers,” concerned with outward appearances, such as body image.
Because she’s a reformer in addition to pot-stirrer, Madonna has a bigger challenge in some ways. She is especially challenged now because she’s also fighting her age rather than going with it. So in her desire to reform is something of an intensity to perfect her body, rather than trying to perfect her world as she’s done in the past.
Both women provide excellent examples of the nuances in our own understanding of people, especially role models. In this, we can use the intent information to help us really understand where people are coming from, what their challenges might be, and apply that understanding to our own lives in pursuit of our desires.
