Enjoy.

------------------------------

942) History is alive! History are the factual stories, recorded events, and memories of a peoples recollection through circumstance. It is their lives remembered for an instant longer than their span of life permitted. Some of the richest history becomes life long lessons of triumph and tragedy. True that certain periods of history can become embellished over time to fit one ideological stance. However each subsequent period of humanity will garner the eventual truth and fit the remembrance in contrast to their present period. History remembered always runs in parallel with a people and a society. This is a common reality for those who are wise and earnest enough to discern for themselves what is real and what is mere fabrication. History is life and death recorded for our benefit. If we are but humble enough to receive it with open minds we shall continue to become wise by grace. Otherwise if we reject history as a guiding light we become fools wanting to be punished again just like our ancestors. What is worse being innocent through ignorance of ones history and repeating it? Or being completely arrogant by knowing ones history and making the same mistake as your fore bearers? ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


943) From the point of view of the majestic Heavenly realms the mundane experiences are wondrous. Due to the fact paradoxically the dynamic and marvelous reality that Heaven engenders on a total basis of the miraculous. From a mortal human point of view it is the extraordinary to be chased after at all costs. The opposite is also true in the Heavenly paradise where uncommon experiences are that of the mundane ordinary activities amongst the living. Often we forget as humanity that we all are united in a common struggle to improve our lives. Where in a spiritual sense we truly are one Spirit under God. Our mundane lives are interwoven constantly with the Divine which imbues the miraculous. It can be stated with confidence that God(dess) and the Heavenly host occupy the realms of the mundane. In equal proportion to the majestic extraordinary realms of Absolute Love.

Observe a newborn child of any species and how they gaze with total awe and splendor to their surroundings. That is but an inkling in scale as to how the wonder and absolute love of God(dess) see's us all in totality. No matter what form of activity be it in mundane or extraordinary circumstances we may find ourselves within. Treasure your moments of life be they boring with complete normalcy and those few spikes in life where we feel closest to the Divine. Both are Holy and sacred in an unconditional love and wonder to be had and fully cherished. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


944) Desires are not just from the heart. Desires also encompass the mind and soul as well. Desires can be altruistic or selfish, they can also be benign in nature. Desires from the heart are usually selfless, but they can also be conditional in nature. Demanding more in an outcome than what is truly necessary. Desires from the mind are elaborate and far reaching in scope, whether intended for good or ill. Desires from the soul are the one's that last the longest. For the desires of the soul are the purest in all of creation. Where they stem from the gentle "Mind and Heart of God(dess)" within us. Desires that are unconditional in nature are always attributed to the Soul. Our "Free Will" is the deciding factor of the intent of a desire. Be it for goodness sake or for a devilish despicable outcome. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
