Summer is finally here and as of yesterday the summer solstice was experienced as the first day of the season. Here in the States public schools for minors is out of session until summer school semester. For children to catch up on their grades or to leap ahead in their grade point average. Much like I mentioned on the Father's Day entry I'm not a parent in this lifetime.
However I was always the kid going to summer school just to catch up in my grades. I always maintained a B grade average as a student with rare A- making it to the dean's list. Mathematics and the sciences I struggled and to this day I only learned math up to pre-algerbra. History and social studies I always excelled greatly full of intrigue for such topics.
Today's trio of "Jewel's of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements are on the topics of: Excellence, Approval, and Faith. In the series of #1042-1044 written in late June in the year 2010. Enjoy them as I do in sharing these inspirations my spirit guides enjoy sharing with me.
1042) Nothing in this life as a man, woman, or child will ever by perfect. It may appear just right, but perfection is only for the spiritual in nature belonging to God himself. Release the need always to be perfect in living your lives for it is an ego trick of the mind as a fool's errand. We are more than the simple dog chasing its own tail. In pursuing a higher standard I dare not stipulate to settle for less if you are capable of better. The breath of life is filled with promise always giving 100% of its own essence. So meet it half way in Excellence in joining your promise to that of the greatest expression of your own life long lessons.
Be still and focus only upon what you can accomplish today. For the tasks of tomorrow do not belong here right now. At least not until you have met the per-requisite in lining up your ducks in a row. Worry not for that alone drains you of the strength and awareness to carry out your tasks in a sensible manner. Be concerned, but delegate that to the back of your mind only to leave your duties up and center before you. Worry will only zap you of a much deserved enthusiasm when it naturally occurs throughout your days.
Keep an outlook for the divine this will allow the sublime holy one to recognize your interest in the majestic in life. This will bind you up in kinship to all that is of grace allowing you to share your struggles with God in earnest. Such a partnership may be uneven, but that too is alright for it is the father's good pleasure as our maker to be engaged at all levels of our life with our willing permission. In centering yourselves in excellence you will rise above many others needing to repeat their work due to faulty errors. This will draw positive distinction upon you to those that matter as the influence and authority makers in life. The handiwork of those committed to excellence is often the fore runner of virtue and conviction of purpose in many other outlets in life. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1043) When one seeks the acceptance of another person outside of your own dignity. You may very well have set yourself up for failure unless the other person is truly compassionate with you. Which only occurs in the minority of cases. A demanding parent as a disciplinarian is more a dysfunctional tyrant than they may ever admit to or realize within any lifetime. An innocent child's trust and respect is only a parent's or caregivers to lose if the adult continues unproductive behavior if not outright dysfunctional ones.
Men and woman as they mature that continue to seek validation of their own internal worthiness outside their persons. Speaks louder to personal insecurity than any other respective truth. As an individual your worthiness stems from the divine within your very being. Or the honorable inherit in all of us until we are taught to fear and hate ourselves or others in life. Our best outlook is dependent on where we prime our focus in life be it God or some other life sustaining philosophical discourse. Our discriminatory thoughts often reflect a bias that is punitive against our self-esteem. The so-called inner critic is the metaphorical devil on our shoulder trashing us every chance we empower it to do so.
Instead re-direct your focus to what is divine in that silent place where no person can ever reach. The inner sacred temple of the heart or mind as the very altar of your own essence otherwise known as your "Highest Self". This is hallowed ground where everything about you is authentic and without taint of this chaotic world. All that you hold dear as unconditional love and every treasure that you have bound on Earth is also bound in Heaven. This is the abode of the sincere intuition and where angels lay awaiting your permission for them to aid you at every sensible turn in life. This is the place between moments where time is just a figment and only the presence of God is real. Through honesty and humility you find the prism of your divine essence intact awaiting your realization and acceptance. The limitations of humanity have no bearing here just the gratitude that you have valued your self-worth greater than the worldly white noise. Telling you incessantly how to think and live for a transitory happiness that only leaves you with a gritty remorse.
The opportunity is yours to realize your authentic self made in the Image and Likeness of God. Not as the world sees you nor how those who would point out your defects as a person just so to weaken your mind and heart. Here the Great Divine sees your limitations as stepping stones for personal growth. Not to define you, but to release you from the burden that such traits are a work in progress, that is all. Allow your heart to feel nurtured from within your own sacred being that is within your inner temple of the soul. Whatever you need is offered 100% always by God. Just be willing to have an open mind and heart to receive it with gratitude at the proper interval and not before. By loving yourselves spiritually you nurture that inner child that always is craving attention. This is the fountain of youth if not life in order to always fill your spirits to overflowing with self-acceptance and self-approval. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1044) All of Creation is in song with the smile of God(dess) that is brought forth from the Alpha to the Omega. For our combined recollection of such a Divine Will provides for us the ability to experience Faith in every turn of our lives. As we remember we light ourselves up as examples of the unconditional love that is available to be experienced by the faithful. We are the most blessed irrespective of our chosen religion or spiritual tradition in life. A faith or any faith in combination with others is but a mere vehicle taking us on the journey to live side by side with the divine presence of God. Our personal tribulations are kindling to be added as fuel to help mold our essence. In order that we may overcome our weakness in order to transform them into our strength in service to each other eternally so.
When in our shortcomings we forget the presence of God in our divine midst. We cheat ourselves of the glory of redemption that is at hand for the combined good of this reality. Our focus becomes skewed, our senses warped, and thus fear has a greater influence on us than our love of life itself. Despair, guilt, and shame become our jailer's unless we choose to take a step back and remember we have the key to our own liberty in our faith with God. With the Holy Spirit as our spiritual adviser can we claim our innocence in order to start over where before we stumbled. This is the way out of a place of prejudice against ourselves in order to make seen at least only to us the substance of our belief if not our love in and with God(dess).
All we need do is find within ourselves the courage to enlist whomever inspires us in Heaven. Be it the ascended masters of: Jesus the Christ, Mother Mary, Mohammad, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, and so forth. These are just some of our spiritual siblings by means of the Holy Spirit of God. As we live by faith let us not trump our brother or sister's spiritual conviction as less than. To do so makes a mockery of our own divinity. Only with humility can we find the wisdom together to walk in peace and forgiveness when we offend each other by mistake or on purpose. This will become the sacred path to awaken gratitude for our faith when we live by the exemplar fashion of our forefathers. Trusting their good counsel in order we may experience God in every era humanity has with him on this Earth and beyond. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another. ---Helen Keller.
The doors of the heart open inwards. ---Louise Hay. "2014 Hay House World Summit" (Interview by Robert Holden)

God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them. ---1 John 4:16
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. ---Proverbs 3:5-6
