Healing Perspectives


Focus on YOUR development, and love others. 

NOT neglect to love, and focus on others’ development.

I’m learning to embrace the first line and thus let go of the second, as I understand the depth and healing power that the first contains.

When I use to not agree with someone’s sense of morality, lifestyle choices, responses to others, or whatever area I may see life differently, out of fear I would feel some sort of obligation to let them know (spoken or not) to help fix, change, or influence them according to what I learned to be right and true. Unfortunately, this concern with others’ progress in their personal development caused me to respond and act in ways that came across as disapproving, critical, prying, and unloving. Often I made the situation worse. It hurt, I couldn’t understand why?

Our heavenly Father taught me a different perspective and focus that is far superior. Instead of being concerned with others’ development and trying to alter it through “correction” of my disapproval, I now know it isn’t my “disapproval” that is needed (spoken, and especially unspoken for people sense our “spirit” above all else in a situation), but my love. And not just my natural love, but a love beyond myself yet flowing through myself, divine love, for it holds a wisdom natural love doesn’t contain. Thus, I needed to focus on my development of this love and simply love them. It isn’t just how we respond to others but the spirit behind it; be it fear or love, that makes the difference.

Ironically, the people causing the most pain and harm are the ones who need the love the most. But usually those are the ones who receive it the least. So by unintentionally “withholding” our love by focusing on the wrong thing, we are creating more harm than good. When people are harming themselves and/or others, whatever guidance they need outwardly is far more effective when it comes from a spirit of love, for it’s love that is lacking and is causing the “issues/problems” in the first place.

For example, when teenagers are “unruly”, we try to correct them in doing what is right. When we neglect to truly love them in the process, they feel judged, which feels like rejection, therefore, they feel more pain on top of the pain they already felt. Only love heals, thus all we do is to be done in and with love, which comes from a place of love, not fear.

In this, I see the power of acting from a place of understanding, compassion, and healing when addressing another instead of “disapproving” and “correcting,” which to the recipient can feel like judgment and rejection. We all need more compassion given and received in our lives, for this care speaks love to our souls, the very love we need to become better, and heal as we need to.

We have never walked in another shoes; it is impossible because it would require living their exact lives from their perspective to fully understand where they are coming from and how they are struggling. But how grateful I now am for all the brushes with various “wayward ways” I’ve had throughout my life, because it gives me a greater ability to give true compassion. But even having gone through similar situations, I’ve never faced exactly what someone else has, thus there is no room for my judgments. It simply doesn’t help. Therefore to criticize another’s response or choice isn’t helpful, but only desiring to help them from a compassionate sincere heart.

Love heals. We all have had much hurt and pain in our lives. So in our desire “to help”, it’s love that is needed for every situation. It isn’t “letting someone get away with something” … they suffer the consequences enough. It’s creating an environment of love and help, allowing someone the room to grow and learn, which is what they need.

Regardless of any situation, love, care, and sincerity for another’s wellbeing are what’s helpful and beneficial to all. Our heavenly Father counsels me on how to see and think in alignment to this love. Then his love through grace helps me me to walk in it. Divine love guides us in ways far beyond what we are able to do on our own for it is a much higher superior love as it knows the depths of the souls of all mankind. Thus he shapes our love in a way beyond anything we could accomplish on our own because he knows what we do not. He can “see” what we cannot.

This intimate instruction is essential for our soul development and to grow in his “kingdom”, where divine love reigns and governs all. It’s the real. Only God’s love is truly real, for it is everlasting. All else will fade away. Thus, as we come into harmony with this love in our soul we embrace what is truly real and everlasting.

 Be to others as I am to you.

Above is another instruction of our heavenly Father to me. How does he come to me? Gentle, tender, patient, and always ready to help. He is never condemning, guilt producing, or rejecting, even in the subtleties that we have in such intimacy. There is no fear in his expression of love to me. His love is always waiting for me to embrace it, never forcing itself upon me. This is how I am to be with others. Never forcing my will or what I think they should do, but realize they have their journey and learning to do, and my role is to speak words of life that energize them on this journey. As our heavenly Father is with me, so I’m to be patient as they learn, and willing to help as they are willing to be helped. This helps me to grow as well. And this is what I would desire from them. Be and do to others as you desire them to be and do to you. 

As my mind molds to divine love’s ways, I’m seeing the wondrous results and effects of these realizations as they produce outward growth for others and me. I have much to learn and desire our perfect Father to search my depths and fill them with his divine love. It’s truly being made into a new creation, a better version, of me. My essence stays the same, but the expression of that essence from my thoughts outward is different. It’s a welcomed change that continues to grow.

Focus on love, and let it become your desire and delight by seeing the very real beauty it creates .. this is what I keep hearing.

I am finding all the answers to all I’m truly seeking and desiring in this instruction, is it really that simple? We’ve made life and knowing of our heavenly Father complicated by living in a lack of love. We connect to Him through his love by becoming in harmony with it, and his ways are always governed by love. Life gets much simpler, easier, and freeing when we start becoming a part of his love for it brings all into harmony and peace.

So I’m learning to keep my focus on my development in the love of divinity and all it entails, and as for others to simply love them with this love I’m learning of and gaining for my own by God’s grace. And I find it brings about what I was really hoping for in the first place.

May we all get close to this love and live in and by it and leave it at that.


A Free Will to Love

A Free Will to Love


Love is a choice, always.

I woke this morning to a glorious sunrise. In a still small voice I heard, “I love you. Will you choose to embrace my love today?” Amazing how each morning our heavenly Father wakes us with the beauty of the skies as if to remind us of the choice we have and the new beginning it can create in our lives. For the future grows out of the present moment.

Love is always a choice. Its voluntary nature makes it powerful and beautiful in our lives and in the lives we give it. Is there any feeling greater than to know that you are truly loved by another? It’s a sincere receiving of care from another that never ends and penetrates the depths of our soul. It’s the greatest gift we can give and receive. If we feel we have nothing to offer, we couldn’t be more wrong. We each are capable of giving the greatest gift one could give, love. And from our place, role, and purpose, whatever they may be on this earth, no one can fill them with love but us.

In this life, we have the “free will” to love or not to. We don’t have much freedom otherwise, we don’t choose when or where we are born, who are parents are, who raises us, our gender, ethnicity, IQ, or genetic makeup. Even our jobs are based on the state of the economy at the time. Some have had good homes, some not. But regardless of all these, we can choose to love or not in the situations we are in and with the people who cross our path. And interestingly, it’s this element of our will that remains with us for all eternity for it is essential for our eternal state, which is one of abiding in love. Thus, the most important expression of our will is our ability to love.

Loving by its definition always come from the “free” will of the giver (and the receiver for that matter), for it can exist in no other form than completely voluntary. Otherwise, it isn’t love but something else. This “free” will experience of this earthly life, under the sovereignty of our perfect Heavenly Father, is serving this purpose, for without an exercise of our “free” will in this realm in this way we couldn’t exist in eternity in love.

In eternity, beyond this earth life yet starting in this earth life within our soul, there is only love. Two opposing things cannot hold the same space at the same time. In the eternal, the domain of our all loving Father, only love abides in souls for it is the creative force behind his harmonious structures and systems, which keep eternity eternal. It is what creates coherence and peace, where the absence of it creates chaos and unrest. Chaos and unrest eventually self-destruct, thus they can’t go on eternally. Thus only those entities of harmony and peace can continue forever, which we are being made into. And love is the creative energy manifesting and sustaining that eternal state.

Our heavenly Father’s most powerful attribute expressed toward us is his perfect love, for this is how his spirit connects and relates to us. If we want to connect to him we must choose to connect to him through his love, for this is the only way we can connect to him. There is no other way; not some ritual, perfect morality, or by default. So he patiently waits for us to choose to love him in return. He is always there with us, but if we decide not to walk in the ways of love we choose not to engage his spirit. So he waits. And if we choose to love Him, then in time we learn we are deciding to love all of his creation.

So it is a love not just for our children, but for all children. It’s a love not just for our pets, but for all animals. It is not just a love for our wellbeing, but for the wellbeing of all. It’s not just being nice, but it desires to care for another soul perfectly. It’s not just a respect and honor with some people some of the time, but with all people all the time. His love is all consuming. It sees all souls and loves all souls with a genuine care and concern. It’s absolutely breathtaking.

We can “love” within limits, but we when we break through those limits we immerse ourselves in the love of our heavenly Father, the love of divinity. By embracing the love of divinity, we become connected to the divine and partakers of the divine. We come into harmony or alignment with it in our mind, soul, spirit, and strength (will), thus grow in accordance with its truths and ways.

Love seems straightforward. But at first it isn’t because many of our thoughts, habits, and automatic responses have been programed in a lack of love. We may feel we love because we love our child or spouse, but I’m finding there is much to know of love and it goes very deep and very wide. Thus, it takes awareness, willingness to learn, persistence, patience, and most of all a desire to change in accordance to its ways. But when we desire it, then our Father is there to help us in every way … for this is what he has been waiting for.

So, how will I proceed this day? Will I choose to forgive or to hold onto pain and seek retribution? Will I choose to exercise understanding and compassion or judgment? Will I choose to see someone as they are today, or hold them to the past? Will I choose to act out of care or convenience? Will I choose to give or to take? Will I choose to change or justify? Will I choose to help or blame? Love heals and unites, thus it’s always the better choice. Of the choices above, when we choose the former we create a better tomorrow for us and others.

Multiple times a day we have choices to make within our personal sphere in this vast universe. What characteristics will our space take on? What do we want to reflect to our heavenly Father and to others? One of love?

Increasing in loving-kindness is a personal endeavor because a growing love comes from the state of our soul, our soul perceptions, and our understanding. Our perfect spirit parent is ready to teach each one of us. Are we listening? Or are we too busy with other things? This too is a choice.

When we choose to lovingly care for others, we are also choosing it for ourselves. And here is a magnificent secret to our lives, if we want to be loved, we must love and choose to do what is loving. So, is there really any other choice to make?

May we all grow in the realm of divine love a little bit more today. We can’t change our lives and the world that has lacked love in a day, but we can one day at a time. Is there any better time to start?





Ever felt that life was urging you onto the next phase, stage, or stratum of life? That’s where I’m at.

Lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes in my perceptions and understandings about the heavenly Father of us all. At times it felt like everything was turning upside down, and sometimes it still does. But he has taught and shown me enough of his divine love that in an odd way my footing has never felt so solid. (I use “he” for simplicity sake, for God is spirit.)

It’s like there was a shell from the residue of this world around my perception of him that blocked me from seeing him as he wanted me to, thus how I saw myself and others. It feels like that shell broke away, and the immense love and care that I perceive is absolutely beautifully glorious. Being infinite, I know I’ll always be learning and growing in my connection to this utmost perfect divine spirit, but what I’m “seeing” is a love that is far beyond what most have imagined, naturally for he is far far beyond us in spirit and nature, yet he remains closer to us than our breath, for he is of perfect love.

Seek and you will find …

If we diligently seek to know the truth, we end up growing in love. When we expand and grow in love everything changes; our perception, our focus, and how we see ourselves, others and our heavenly Father. Over the years of seeking truth, he has manifested himself to me by teaching me life-changing truths, counseling me through many situations and dark nights of the soul, and giving me love I lacked. He has changed me from the inside out to such a degree I no longer recognize who I was as me. He has brought a depth of love into my life that I can give to others that I never knew existed and I only want it to increase and magnify to fill all and all. There is no doubt, by what has transpired in my life that his hand has been shaping, guiding and leading, for everything has grown more beautiful. His essence form is the most caring, majestic, and loving spirit who always wants to guide, lead and help us. But as love is gentle, tender and patient, so is he toward us and he waits for us to come to him. He never forces himself on us. But when we are willing to listen, he is always right there. He is the perfect spirit parent of us all.

We perceive and know God’s spirit according to our level of soul development or maturity. As we transform in our soul, we perceive everything and everyone differently including God. My perception has changed to such an extent that there is a new foundation rising up in my life extending from my morphing soul, one constructed of his divine love. Though small, it’s like my feet have moved onto a new platform. I have so much to learn of this love and still much growth to occur in my soul to be the reflection of this love as I desire.

Due to my growing understanding of the amazing love and nature of our Creator that’s starting to consume my life, I’m allowing this blog and my YouTube Channel to embrace that change as well. I’ve wrestled with leaving the trail I’ve journeyed, but what presses upon me as more important is allowing his reflection to grow truer, that means letting go of the past. When we start stepping ahead, we can leave the past behind.

The heavenly Father wants us to know him, and sometimes, often, by letting go of the past and embracing our present, which he has crafted, helps us to continue to move forward in him and with him, a movement deeper into his perfect divinity.

How true are the two commandments given to us by our Christ: love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love others as yourself. Love of divinity is what is needed for all of us. And really this is what it all comes down to, isn’t it? All else is a distraction from the attainment of our deepest and truest desires.


Evolution of the Spirit Mind

Evolution of the Spirit Mind


The ways and laws of the Old Testament in the Bible were a reflection of mankind’s understanding of who they believed God to be and what they thought God wanted according to the image they held of God. Thus they had animal sacrifice, stoning, harsh judgments, and various laws. They saw God in a certain way and everything was filtered through that image.

The church system does the same thing today. Water baptism, communion, tithing, “corporate” worship, and their understanding of what being a “good Christian” means is based upon their image of God and how to “worship” and “serve” Him.

It’s deemed that today’s reflection is a more “loving” reflection of God. Yet, the image is still based upon mankind’s ideas and not the true nature of God, which is made evident from the countering acts that are contrary to a “loving” God. A glaring one is the unkind treatment and attitude of indifference to other creations of God’s creation. This kind of treatment to others isn’t found in divine love, for divine love protects one from suffering. But this isn’t seen as odd or even contradictory because of mankind’s perception of who they believe God to be. For example, be kind to your neighbor, but perpetuate mass cruelty to animals. It’s all contradictory and we will find contradictions in what isn’t truth, which is always sown in divine love. When we start learning of the love of the true God, that truth holds no contradictions because it reflects the real nature of God.

God’s reflection can’t be contained in a book, even the Bible, only man’s understanding of who He is.  Anything, even “words” of God, that pass through the mind of man is always limited to that mind and the perceptions it holds. The image of the OT God was true and real for those who followed it, as we can see by the acts they took in the name of God, just as much as the image is true for the church today, but that doesn’t make it the true reflection.

The truth is what is real. It never changes. What is real is the love of God that fills ALL in ALL, because this is what divine love does. What mankind perceives is always connected to and limited to their ability to perceive certain qualities or receive a certain understanding. We can’t truly know and believe what we don’t first perceive. We are all limited by our perceptions. This is why we want to see or perceive from divine love, and that alone, for that is what is truly real, and how we come to know God’s true nature, and thus be a part of Him.

What I’m learning is that divine love, the love of God, extends to the smallest creation and to every living creation, thus why when we start growing in divine love we have a growing and deepening love for all of creation, even ants. It is a true concern and care in which we desire NONE to suffer to ANY degree. This is why I’ve been talking so much about the animals, it is the growing understanding of the extent and nature of divine love, the true reflection of the heavenly Father.

This love extending to all without boundary, limitation or cessation is a reflection of God’s love. It’s a love that desires not only that none should perish, but that none should suffer. Divine love prevents suffering. It prevents fear. This is why it is so powerful, desirable, beautiful and magnificent in our lives. These torments can’t exist in its presence. This is why when we are fully in this love suffering and fear cease to exist. This is why there is no suffering for eternity; the perfect love of God in our lives prohibits it. And praise God for that!!

So now you must be wondering how can suffering exist here?

This is an unreal reality. It’a a picture of a place without God’s love that is why there is so much confusion about who God is, because it lacks His love. How can something exist without the love of God who fills all in all, except that it is an unreality, like a dream state, a deep sleep, or a “death” state. Death, the absence of love, doesn’t exist in the reality of divine love. This state is exactly what it prohibits.

Does being aware of this “dream” state make the love we know and give any less significant? No, on the contrary, we can only understand the true nature of this dream state from the perspective of divine love, and when we are in divine love that love never lessens but only grows deeper and continually increases.

So this dream that we are partaking of is serving a specific purpose. In it we are learning many things, and above all without this divine love and only a tainted natural human love, this reality is what is created, everything contrary to God, even His very image.

This is going to be an interesting year ….


Asleep & Unreal OR Awake & Real

Asleep & Unreal

OR Awake & Real


The heavenly Father’s divine love is here for us, if we will only desire it with a true heart and soul longing. Love never forces itself upon another, it is against its nature, thus we must desire it.

If we honestly desire it, it means we are willing for it to change us and mold us in any way that it leads us, for this love of divinity always leads us deeper into itself, thus into perfection and more love. This is how we are purified to a pristine soul, for when we walk and abide in divine love we start to live in increasing purity for this is its nature. We can’t be a part of divine love and give this love, and remain soiled in our soul. This is why divine love is a great healer in many ways; it changes everything in our mind, soul, spirit, and body.

In receiving this inflow of divine love we are transformed into new creations, inside out.  Again divine love is love of divinity, the love of the heavenly Father, versus mere human or natural love. It’s a love that contains thus reflects the characteristics of the heavenly Father. 

This concept of how we receive divine love relies heavily upon mankind’s will to desire it. This leads to the idea of mankind’s “free” will. If they reject this love, then their will must be free to do so, right? Not exactly.

Our will follows our desires. Desires are shaped at a subconscious level by many things, that we are aware of and aren’t aware of, and thus are anything but free; therefore neither is our will free that follows it.

In this land of an unreal psychological reality, lies, fears, and images are the defining factors shaping mankind’s desires thus will. (unreal psychological reality = a perception of reality based on what is not real, i.e. lies and images)  All of these elements based in the unreal are contrary to this divine love. So in pursuing desires based upon them, we can’t attain what we all truly desire, divine love. So as our desires are bound by lies, “free” will is an illusion. There is nothing more binding than a lie we believe to be the truth. Our will is shaped by our desires that are shaped by the influences of truth or error around us. Only desires shaped by divine love manifest the real, a true inflow of the love of God. All other desires shaped by the unreal keep us bound to a lack of that love, thus the unreal. And what I have learned of divine love is it’s the true desire of every soul whether they realize it or not.

So if mankind’s desires can be shaped and influenced, which this is obviously the case, then my question is why doesn’t the heavenly Father’s divine love come and shape those desires for His love? If this love is a great power, which it is when we experience its nature and influence in our lives, why isn’t it actively influencing souls and crafting mankind’s desires? Is a lie that is unreal more powerful than His love that is real?

In the unreal this love isn’t known, for it exists only in the real. With the plethora and extent of lies posing as truth, this divine love isn’t known or recognized, thus it isn’t believed that it exists. Very few people know and believe it, so it isn’t seen among the masses, thus isn’t believed in. It’s similar to when people believed the earth was flat. It wasn’t questioned until more understanding and knowledge came along to the masses, then it was understood and accepted that it was round.

In “Stirring the Deep”, I’ve stirred my way right out of this reality. If we were in the real, the heavenly Father’s divine love would be influencing every soul and drawing it into itself. This is the nature of love: it cares, it never fails, and it looks out for the weaker, and it does for the weaker what it can’t do for itself.

When we come to understand and know the divine love of our heavenly Father, we realize that a place of suffering (created by an unreal psychological reality that is void of the love of God), isn’t truly real, but only a reflection of the state of our mind, like a dream. We go to sleep and enter a different reality, and yet in the dream state we believe it is real, until we “wake” up.  So, I’m wondering if we are in a dream state, a sleep state, in which we experience an unreal reality for purposes of soul development? And we awaken out of this sleep as we start to move into the real, the divine love of God?

In divine love, death doesn’t exist. It can’t. It couldn’t be a reality in the midst of divine love. This is why death can and will be destroyed; it is based on the unreal and only an illusion of an unreal reality.

So if this love is in the real and we are in the unreal, how is that gap bridged?

I pray for a great awakening in mankind’s soul perceptions to the reality of divine love.

By the way, Happy New Year. May it be one of a great emergence from the unreal to the real.
