Blessings be dear one.
Coming back into beauty is important because this practise connects you with an energy flow beyond the ordinary. Even more important simply than noticing the beauty is the energy of appreaciation and gratitude of this beauty. The energy of this connects you with life-force energy and re-sets your connection with the surrounding life-force energy around you. You are then able to draw upon this energy and empower yourself, moving yourself beyond the competition for energy which many humans are currently experiencing.
Without doing this, you find yourself stuck within the blame-shame game and the pity poor-me party. Moving your connection – moving your addiction to energy – beyond the human game strategy frees you from the current webs of understanding, politics and spiritual development.
Unfortunately, at this point much of humanity is too caught up in this game and wants to remain attached to this game at this point in time… You will see a change in this over the next 8-15 years as more people come to understand the importance of moving beyond this “net”. For it is indeed a net – that traps you and holds and limits your belief systems. Take a step back, and look at who “gets” the power when you indulge in the blame-shame game or the pity poor me game… Much of your current corporations are actively engaged in energy manipulations so as to gain energy in this way, and gain a great deal from this – even when it is the anger that others hold against them for “wrong” behaviour. This game dis-empowers you, detaching you from the natural world around you and from your own spiritual truths and deeper sense of connection. One of the most powerful things you can do is step out of the game, and step deeper into connection with nature. Yes, still fight to protect nature – but do it from a place of connection to that beauty and wisdom of nature, not out of anger or fear or loss. When you blame a corporation for action they take – even when you “win” the action – if you are disconnected from the appreaction of the beauty of what you have been standing up for – you are accessing only a small portion of the energy… Remain connected to an appreaction and gratitude for the beauty of whatever it is you are “fighting” for – and you will find that your “fight” comes from a very different place – and has a very different energy foccussed around it. Indeed, you will find that the results you achieve go far beyond what you might expect.
There is so much more available to you as a race of humans and as a culture of humanity than what you are currently accessing. The building of your own personal energy through an appreaciation of beauty – and gratitude for this is but a first step along this path. And although we call it – in this moment “a first step” – in truth it is only a step. For there are many other steps, and some may be sideways into appreactiation and gratitude, and sideways from here into deeper practise of spirituality in practise. There are many elements to this practise and the beauty-appreaciation-gratitude practise is just one.
We wish to speak to you of the mechanics of appreactiating beauty. It is so much more than this – yet the words to fully explain are not yet in depth enough. Many of your spiritual teachings touch on this – but it is a process not yet fully understood by you.
It opens up the energy of your heart. And this is an “engine” of energy that humanity – at all the different levels – has vastly underestimated. The engine of the energy of the heart. Until this time. This time is the time when the opportunity to step into the ENGINE of this energy is beginning to mount towards a peak. To step into this heart. We speak of this energy as an ENGINE – as in truth what we are seeking to describe is a driving force of energy. This comes from the heart, and is of the heart, and comes through the heart. But the power of this is far more than what the words convey. Many of you know this energy as compassion – and those who stand within and work within the energy of compassion have been and are able to achieve far more than what is considered “normal” by the rest.
Standing, working or coming from within this energy flow – this engine of compassion – one of the aspects of what is actually occuring is that you are tapping into an energy flow that lies outside of yourselves and allowing it to flow through you. This inspires you, and moves you towards greater acts of compassion – which then link you back into the enregy of this, further nourishing yourself. The act of remaining within this flow requires you to see beauty – everywhere. And be able to appreaciate it and give gratitude for it. It does not matter wether you are giving gratitude to the godhead, or the plant, landscape or natural form – it is the energy practise of gratitude & appreaciation which is important here.
Opening to this flow, connects you with a force of energy, beyond yourself – a divine, driving, activating, empowering force of energy. You are building your ability to open more and more into this flow, in the same way that you might train your muscles for a race or test of skill. Appreaciation and gratitude for and of natural beauty is a practise which supports the building of the heart-muscle and ability of the heart to open to more, to allow more to flow through. Think of this as a muscle which you are strengthening through your daily practise of appreaction, gratitude and observation of beauty.
Try, as an exercise to spend 15minutes a day, in a space of appreaciation and gratitude for the natural beauty you see around you. You may wish to extend this practise, to sharing with your friends what you see and appreaciate within them, or in various situations in which you find yourself. Remember though, part of this practise is about dis-connecting from the human drama game. Bring your focus back to nature for this and try not to rely on feedback from others.
A suggestion: Scroll through, read what jumps out at you, and leave the rest. This simple practise still surprises me with the insights I gain.....
