You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf
This engagement with the mindsets of the will-to-good, this adventure in truth is one I want to share with others. When Guy introduced me to love and forgiveness skills, it gave me a point of integration for the learning of a lifetime. When I contacted him to tell him I was starting to teach this material in Derry, he gave me unqualified permission to do whatever I wanted with the course materials he’s given me. I have taken him at his word.
I’ve been going through a tough time this last year, as tough a time as I’ve ever been through. I don’t know what the alternative would have been like but I’ve been working with these ideas intensely in the last few months. The goodwill patterns have been a golden net that has held me, cradled my pain, helped me find what I need to learn so I may know my suffering is not in vain. The waves have kept on coming but I’m surfing and this is my surfboard.
The more each of us allows these patterns to emerge from within us, the more truly we become ourselves, the better it is for both us and the world. If we could heal the planet…well we can, we are. This is how. Each of us knows within ourselves the will-to-good, it is as innate as our eye colour. Following our hearts, we will find own way of dancing into truth. May light guide and love hold you always.
Dancing into Truth
I am spirit on earth and I dedicate myself to channelling love and truth into my life.
I am a source of light in the living body of potential ever growing in unity with all as the universe and I flow harmoniously in change together.
Love is my nature, truth is my will.
The essential masculine and feminine principles of god and goddess in all their forms dwell within me.
The ecstasy of their intertwining is the divine spark of life into my deeper nature.
I am a wild child, a responsible adult and a wise elder.
I encompass within myself the wealth of human experience.
I welcome the fullness of life with its joy and sorrow as I work and play.
Accepting into memory all suppressed experiences I release them with love and forgiveness.
I love and do as I will.
The truth of my experiences and purity of my heart enable me to govern myself.
I share a vision with all people building a world based on freedom and cooperation.
The universe flows through me and I use this power to create, nurture and heal.
My love embraces violence and pain and transmutes them into peace and enthusiasm. I respect the autonomy of each and choose not to interfere with pity or harm.
I create my won reality as I provide myself with the experiences I need.
A divine presence guides my ego and shapes all I think, feel, say and do.
I lovingly and willingly surrender to the beauty and perfection of all that I am.
I feel my connection with all facets of this universe – the earth, the water, the sky, plants, animals, spirits and other beings.
The divine within me recognises and appreciates the divine within you.
My mind is a messenger bearing inspiration and intuition.
I am sincere, I honour my word and I fulfil the responsibilities I choose.
In perfect love and perfect trust I share the truth within me.
Life’s experiences reflect my behaviour as the wed of cause and effect constantly reminds me of my path: whatever I send out returns magnified.
Through the veils of illusion I see clearly the stillness that moves me.
I am healthy, happy and free as earth’s abundance provides for all my needs.
I celebrate the cycles of change and recognise illness, adversity and confusion as opportunities to grow in wisdom and understanding.
Realising the grace of the divine within me I laugh, sing and dance in the everpresent now.
I am birthing a new magical being within myself as part of the planetary transformation of consciousness and evolution of homo sapiens into homo veritas, true human.
