Dear Ones,

Here is a poem written during the monthly creative writing class I attended at the beginning of May. The stance of the poem I feel to be good for me as a neutral observer of humankind.

Elsewhere in my blogs I express the stance I would take were I a transvestite (a crossdresser) or transgender person dealing with the Ascension clearing process through the Incoming Light. That process also involves neutral witnessing, I feel, but of a different sort: In that field ‘beyond right and wrong’ (to quote the great mystical poet Rumi) each of us stands alone with God, and assesses the what and wherefore of our human condition, the causal incidents of our Soul wounding, and that ruthlessly truthful Awareness that leads to an ever brighter Body of Light.

There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

At writing class last month, we had an assignment to write a story that included certain words. Each person in the class contributed one word at that moment; and the words were: candle, crutch, soar, sadness, transvestite, and excitement. 

My gift to the class was a poem that included all those words. Here is that poem for you; the title is “Hold a Candle” ….

“Hold a Candle”
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
5 May 2019

 

Hold a candle
Find a light
Hold it high
Against the night

What’s a hindrance?
What’s a crutch?
Find the surest
Healing touch!

Soar in laughter
Sink in pain
Sense the level
Strong terrain

Sadness catches
One and all
Then allows us
To recall

How excitement
May sustain —
Double, triple
Each small gain

Trust that
Each transvestite’s fear
May find comfort
Somewhere

Hear their yearning
Sense their call:
I’m God’s child
As are we all.

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

I do feel that we now have a chance to arrange world wealth in a more equitable way, so that all the people who share this planet have enough to eat, have adequate shelter and medical care, have a good education and job opportunities, are provided with safety and equity through the laws of their country, and have a chance for happiness.

On the other hand, I don’t believe in counterfeit as a quick way to achieve this goal. Here is my reasoning:

THE PROCESS OF UPLIFTMENT OF COMMUNITIES ON NEW EARTH

First, during these times of New Life on New Earth, the most important thing, I feel, is not the end result … plenty for all humankind … but rather the process of evolution of our communities into an understanding of the importance of this goal.

Upliftment and Cleansing of the Justice System Worldwide

It’s the same way with the upliftment and cleansing of the justice system in each of our communities. There’s just no point in a ‘lone ranger’ going in and attempting to eliminate criminal activities in a community. The process the world is undergoing right now, is the upliftment of each community, arranged by God through the grace of the Incoming Light. As the Soul wisdom of the people in each community matures, the elimination of criminal activities, and of the current widespread abuses and infringements of human rights, worldwide, will occur naturally.

THE OUTCOME OF COUNTERFEIT MONEY USE

Secondly, when people figure that global money is ‘rigged’ by a few powerful people (which it currently, most likely, is), and then go make counterfeit money as a way of evening the playing field, there are unfortunate results.

Magnification of Soul Wounding

Firstly, great power has the power to corrupt us greatly. For the truth of this, look to those who now hold great power on Earth.

When a person makes and uses counterfeit money, he puts himself in the same boat of the powermongers of Earth. The same temptations beset him as he clearly perceives to beset them. His Soul wounding is greatly magnified by the opportunity to act out, in real life, the promptings of his malware.

Increase in Personal Fear and Paranoia

Secondly, possession of counterfeit money quite naturally leads to fear and even paranoia. How could it not be so? One fears to use the money he had intended for the upliftment of humankind. How could he explain, to the powers that be, how he came by this money?

This fear and paranoia might logically lead to the following scenario …

Desire to Overthrow the Powers That Be

Introspection. Having ‘all the money in the world’ … yet beset by fear and even paranoia … this man might choose introspection:

What has gone wrong here? I see the injustices caused by inequity in distribution of world wealth today. I had hoped to level the playing field. I now have ‘all the money in the world. Yet I feel fearful of the government, of the financial system, and of others with great wealth. What misstep may I have taken? And in this way, through introspection, he might arrive at a different course of action.

Sedition. Or else, and to his great misfortune, he might reason otherwise … He might think: Ah, it is the fault of these powermongers that I feel fear. I shall choose, once more, boldly to act. And then, through the use of his counterfeit funds. he may foment revolution among the downtrodden. The likely result of this act of sedition will be his death.

WHERE DID HE OR SHE GO WRONG? WHAT DID HE OR SHE DO WRONG?

Where did he or she go wrong? What did he or she do wrong? Here is how I feel about it:

On Alignment with Divine

I feel we are not on Earth to play the power game, or to force other people to eat mud because they are playing that game. Rather, we are on Earth to increase our loving nature, the energy of our hearts …

  • through prayer and meditation, for the upliftment of humankind
  • through our own conversation with God,
  • our walking with Christ,
  • our singing the praises of Lord Krishna,
  • our reading of the poetry of the great saint Rumi,
  • our appreciation of the natural world,
  • and our interaction, in a kindly and understanding manner, with other members of our community.

On Our Relationship to the Caesars of This World

As Christ said: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” –Mark 12:17 (KJV, public domain) In other words, we need not fight the powermongers of Earth. Let them be the powerful ones.

Ours is the province of developing a relationship with the Divine that imbues all we see. As Djwhal Khul said in the “Great Invocation,” of aligning our minds, our hearts and our wills with the great Mind and Heart and Will of God. (1)

Transformation of the Hologram

In this way, through alignment with Divine, the entire Earth hologram transforms to the Light. All in a flash, and through our beings, through our own turning the the Great Light, enlightenment happens. This is the fractal reality of our Earth experience. This is our choosing of the optimum timeline and dimension. In this way, we experience that All is One, and One is All.

ON CHOOSING HAPPINESS

About money I have this to say: Ask God to work through us so that we may get enough money that we can be happy in the world. Or if we cannot garner that, that we may find work that makes us happy, and fulfills our daily physical needs. In this way we can feel happiness.

While powermongers spread a contagion of want and need amongst those those around them, we who choose the simple life spread quite the opposite. Simply by standing in our presence, our friends and work acquaintances will feel a contagion of joy.

ON TURNING AWAY FROM PUBLIC OPINION

One of the most important things in achieving inner peace, I’ve found, is to summon the strength of will to turn away from public opinion as a means of achieving self-esteem. What other people think of us is invariably based on their own Soul wounding. Why ought we kowtow to that? What would that bow do for us, but incline our own set of malware to include their own?

This is the power of aligning with God, or with our ascension team: It allows us to turn away from societal expectation, from the chidings of our families, our worldly organizations, and to follow our own hearts’ promptings.

This realignment greatly strengthens our electromagnetic field, allowing us to maintain that peace of mind, that state of happiness we had hoped to achieve all along.

So I find, so I feel, and so I hope for each of you.

May you all be blessed.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Centering Prayer to Heal the Victim-Aggressor Mental Filter (aka V— D— Syndrome) . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 1 May 2016
Previously titled: “Centering Prayer to Heal the Aggressor-Victim Mental Filter (aka V___ D___ Syndrome),” by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Yesterday I went to a morning “Silent Saturday” retreat at Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Encino, California …

Link: “Holy Spirit Retreat Center: Where People of All Faiths Can Come to Seek the Sacred” …  https://www.hsrcenter.com/ ..

… and there I learned the Method of Centering Prayer described here …

Link: “How to Do Centering Prayer,” 29 June 2019, in Wikihow … http://www.wikihow.com/Do-Centering-Prayer ..

This is a prayer technique taught through Contemplative Outreach, LTD., whose spiritual guide is Fr. Thomas Keating …

Link: “Centering Prayer,” by Contemplative Outreach … http://www.contemplativeoutreach.org/category/category/centering-prayer ..

It is a simple technique of shutting the door to the senses and the world, focusing on the heart. This center of Awareness could be center of the chest, or the physical heart, which is slightly to the left in the chest …

  • I found when I focused on the center of the chest, I homed in on the sound of my lungs, and their crepuscular motion.
  • I found when I focused slightly to the left, I homed in on the sound and motion of my heart, which practice I chose as my favorite.

Then one picks a simple Word, such as ‘Jesus’, ‘Abba’. ‘Christ’, ‘God’, ‘Father’, ‘Mother’, ‘Mary’, ‘Amen’, ‘Faith’, ‘Trust’, ‘Love’, ‘Joy’, ‘Grace’, ‘Peace’, ‘Let Go’, ‘Listen’, ‘Silence’, ‘Stillness’, or such like.

So, I am concentrating on my heart. Then a random thought arises. At this, in my heart, I say my chosen Word. There may be a stretch of silence, with no thought arising, during which my attention is purely focused on my heart. Then another thought arises. Once more, I say my favorite Word.

I took to this meditation immediately, and found it right away led me into the sort of Divine love described in the poems of 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim theologian, jurist, Islamic scholar, and Sufi mystic Rumi, whose sacred poetry is acclaimed worldwide.

I was practicing the meditation last night, while lying flat on my back in ‘corpse pose’, and noticed the victim-aggressor mental filter (also known on the clair plane as V— D— syndrome) playing out in my mind.

Shavasana

In electromagnetic field terms, I would describe this victim-aggressor mental filter as a filtering of the Incoming Light by a glitch of about three points of Light closure in my crown chakra (7th chakra old-style, located at the top of my head).

As I brought attention from the astral play caused by the crown chakra glitch, back to my heart by repetition of my chosen Word, I felt the glitches fill with Light, and the astral play suddenly ceased. All the actors vanished. I was left mainly in the near silence of my softly susurrating heart.

So there it is, and so I have found: Centering Prayer is a way to heal the victim-aggressor mental filter (aka V— D— syndrome).

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
