The Invitation by Dorothy Hunt

I received this from a friend today and I thought others would enjoy it too.  In joy!

The Invitation

When God comes in your house

it is only by your invitation,

but even your invitation is God’s,

for she has always been

landlady and tenant,

windows and walls,

the fire in your hearth

and the cold wind blowing at your door.

At first, her visits seem so welcome.

She brings tea and cookies and loves you

so sweetly inside your own heart.

You keep inviting her back

by your prayers and meditations,

imagining you’ve found the one you always wanted

who will hold you on her endless lap

and take away your pain forever.

Image

But pretty soon, she starts arriving

unexpectedly, at odd hours of the day and night,

and every time she comes,

she takes something away –

a pretty picture here, a bookcase there,

maybe even some trash

you are happy to be rid of

in your basement.

But at some point, it occurs to you

she intends to move in completely.

And now the mind starts backing up:

“Perhaps you could come back another day,

after I’ve worked on my house,

after I’ve bought nicer furniture,

after I’ve finished my fight with evil,

after I’ve planted a peace garden.”

But you must know

that if you invite God in,

sooner or later she will set up house,

and when she does, beware;

for she tosses out every single thing

she does not need, which,

in the case of the personality,

is every single thing you thought you were.

Every thought and cherished belief

she just throws out on the garbage heap;

and that might be fine if she replaced them,

but she never replaces those sacred thoughts;

she utterly destroys them. She strips the coverings

off the walls, and peels the paper from the window glass,

opens the doors to invite in the wind,

and every creature you wanted kept out.

Sometimes she cleans you house gently,

dismantling it room by room.

But often, she just comes in with a torch,

and you feel in your gut the fire burn

in the center of our separate comfort,

and you watch the contents of your house

melt and turn to ash,

and the roof blow off.

And just when you think

there is nothing more that she could take,

she opens the ground beneath

the barely intact shell of your house,

and all the levels of your being

fall into the space that has no name,

and you are left alone in all the world,

without a map, without a path, without a point of view.

Image

And you know you are creator of your dreams,

your dreams of mountains and rivers,

calm seas and storm clouds,

crashes of lightning and spacecraft,

beautiful babies asleep at the breast,

joyful dancing and puppies at play,

Spring’s new blossoms,

and the threat of Winter’s war.

And at this point,

what you are inside your house

is simply What is looking out.

Nothing’s left but what is looking,

yet everything you see is you.

Your body is the world of being

looking out of just What Is.

And strange as it seems

to the mind of your memory,

you enjoy each dance of yourself,

even the pains you hoped to be rid of,

you experience fully without regret,

for everywhere your eye may look,

all it sees is infinite love

displaying itself in creation.

And just to be completely honest,

there are times you might be tempted

to rebuild your house of concepts,

for the mind just loves to think;

but the fire of Truth resides within you,

where it always lived before you knew,

and it keeps revealing moment to moment

what is false and what is true.

So what can be said about what happens

when God takes over her house?

She laughs and simply sips her tea,

washes her dishes and sleeps when it’s time,

then goes to find another house

where there has been an invitation,

an invitation to come in

from the deep, deep love of Herself.

God Whisperer by Sophia Love

You are not here to be nice or to make each other happy.  You are here to live and in your living of life unencumbered by the chains of limitation you will bring joy to all you meet.

I am you.

What are you waiting for?  You are the One.

~Sophia

I have experienced a lot of judgement around the word God.  Perhaps many have this experience.  It has taken me decades to desolve the judgemental feelings I experienced around this word.  Don’t let this word detour you from reading this beautiful and powerful post.  The word God in this post is used in a way that goes beyond religion, dogma, or any other limiting beliefs.  It speaks to the absolute knowing and being with in everyone of us.  In joy.

I hesitate to share this, as I do not normally speak like this.  Yet, it is me and I have been sharing my understanding out loud right along.  I have accessed my eternal essence and speak here as God.  This is not channeled.  It was whispered.  I share it here because this is a journey we are taking together, as One.  The language is uncomfortable yet it was and is mine.  I have been transparent with you all along and this discomfort will not stop the transparency.

At the end I share a song sung by Joan Osborne “What if God was One of us?”  
GOD IS ONE OF US.  GOD IS ALL OF US.

You are resting in a field of “when”.  Even now, when the legal instrument for your freedom has been supplied – you wait to be handed your freedom.  You wait for your captors to give up and give you back what they took.  Still you think like a slave.  The training is embedded deep within this race; it will take a fight to get it removed.

You are my children and I watch you kneel and bow and grovel and obey a set of beings who have set themselves against the purpose of creation.  Creation thrives on balance.  Yin Yang, Positive Negative, Hot Cold and yet these “masters” have altered the fabric. It was an experiment and its time for completion is long since passed.

The final word was and always is mine.  It was to be different – I am pleased with what my creations have accomplished and yet still the raping and theft of the planet continues at the hands of those who would call themselves Gods.  They are powerful beings; equal to God in every way but one.  The Source of this Universe does not spring from them. They have taken truth – the truth of their power, and isolated it.  They forgot who they were and pushed so far past what is true as to forget.

They do not want Oneness and will not be convinced of its benefits.  The benefits they seek are here in the material world.  Life means little to them, except their own.  They will not alter their course except by force. It is humans as One force who could stop them, yet it is not seen that the desire is there.

An era of love has overtaken the planet.  A very good thing but with these beings it is not love that will stop them in their current form.  It is force.  It will take a melding of all the voices, not just the Light, to stop them.  It will take a refusal to be slaves.  It will take an acceptance of the truth of them.

Power does not come without knowledge.  Acceptance does not mean a lack of action.  Understand the difference between polite and subservient.  You will have an effect now only in full acknowledgement of your power.

You are able to change the course of history, the plan for the planet if you do so as One.  There is One voice that is heard by me and it is spoken by Humanity.  This is the voice of Man.  This voice unites now on being sick of the corruption and tired.  This voice has not yet said “No”.  A “No” will be heard when the truth of your slavery sinks in.

I understand that not everyone has the temperament, purpose or desire to fight – yet without the internal resolve to ignore and dissolve the Masters – there will be slaves.

You were created to express life and have not displeased me.  You were also scheduled at this moment to answer a question – “How much will it take to push you into action?”  “How deeply do you sleep?”  “What is the threshold of your Absolute Awareness?”  For the time of partial knowing is over.

The transformation is upon you and it will happen voluntarily or drag you along with it.

You cannot be partially free.  You cannot be a little in love.  You are free.  You are love.

There is a term coined “tough love”.  This implies doing unpopular things because of love.

And what is love?  It is an acknowledgement of other in self – a seeing of self in other – and saying “Yes, I see you, I accept you, and all is well.”  Acceptance does not mean alter.  Acceptance means honesty.  It does not hide from what is obvious.

You have a pink elephant in your house.  It is a member of the house and is defecating everywhere; it stinks.  It has to go someplace else.  Your talk of loving the elephant falls far short of stopping the shit from destroying your home.  It has to go; love has nothing to do with it.

Love does not mean inaction.  It does not mean allowance as in submission.  Love means a direct understanding of the truth in all beings – an acknowledgement of the sacred in life.  It means responsibility.  Love demands an examination of all thought, word and deed.  You cannot partially serve Truth.  Truth demands Absolute Awareness.

Once I understand that I am not higher evolved or lesser than – I am called to act as if.  Act as if there is One Truth.  You do not know if your way of being is the desired way for all beings.  Yet you must always maintain the absolute right of all beings to maintain their own way of being – UNLESS IT INFRINGES OR DOES HARM TO LIFE.

Life expressed physically is You – it is all things – it cannot be separated – it is One.

The life that is You is being harmed and this cannot continue.  Life demands to be allowed to continue.  As a tree must lose some sickly branches in order to thrive – humanity must lose the poisoned ones so that it can thrive.  You are again at a moment of decision that you can take into your own hands and make or allow me to make for you – I will make it with destruction as in the case of the planet that is the only way for life to continue.

Slaves can have many Masters – not all are physical; some are ideas, thoughts that limit and beliefs that keep us in line.  It is upon you now to examine every emotion that unsettles – seek its origin and decide if at its root it is slavery or freedom that disturbs you.

For freedom is a disturbing place to be as well – a place that incites passion and action and an ever reaching grasp for more.

At your core you are designed always to reach – “More” is the fuel of creation.

When you are confused about the source of your inner disturbance ask this – “Am I disturbed because of a giving up?”  “Am I disturbed because of a letting go?”  “Am I disturbed because of fear?” “What is the source of this fear?”  If the source is other – then it is a case of slavery.  If the source is self – more inquiries are called upon to determine its cause.  Are you afraid to lose your life?  Your “face”?  Your pride? Are you afraid others will think you are foolish or reckless?  At what are you looking?  At who?

I tell you this – you cannot lose life – it is eternal.  Yet the physical must be cared for and nurtured.  No “other” exists that can destroy you.  Do you understand?  The “face” you are putting out for others to see is a reflection of your very truth.  It is your chosen form.  Growth and understanding can’t help but change your face – that’s what awareness does.

The innocence of a child is something you all cherish because the pain has been so great in your loss of it – yet innocence is confused with joy and they are not the same.

There is none happier than a wise and ancient soul who sees and understands the expression of life – there is a luscious, rich, tender and beautiful joy in every terrible, wonderful moment.  You are not here to be nice or to make each other happy.  You are here to live and in your living of life unencumbered by the chains of limitation you will bring joy to all you meet.

I am you.

What are you waiting for?  You are the One.
