“Self-absorption in one’s own world is a key threat that undermines the expression of valor, and fear of consequence is the other.”

As there are two key phrases in this statement, I’ll take them individually. This was a major “pop-off-the-page-at-me” statement. Confrontation has never been my forte; often I’ve found myself acquiescing rather than standing up for myself. Participating in demonstrations where “power” might show up? Never! Not in this lifetime at least. “Timid” would be a great description of my stance. And for both reasons given in the statement above: self-absorption and fear of consequences. Continue reading

The Journey into My Heart — Compassion – I

Continuing with my series about the inner work I have been doing for a couple of months now, I investigate the Lyricus Teachings regarding Compassion. Links to source documents and previous posts in this series are at the bottom.

With increased awareness of Understanding, Appreciation and Humility within me, I consider which one of the remaining three Heart Virtues will be next for me to contemplate. I tend to think of Compassion and Forgiveness as fraternal twins: they look similar enough to be twins but not identical to the point of me being unable to distinguish them. They frequently show up together, or in quick sequence that feels as though they are there in tandem. Once Understanding, Appreciation and Humility have been cultivated, it is natural to find Compassion in my heart for almost anyone or anything. And once Compassion is present, Forgiveness is easily extended. It often seems easier to offer these two qualities to “others” than to myself but with the development of these Heart Virtues as a braided or bundled collective, I am finding that Self Love is growing stronger each day.

Since I am addressing the Heart Virtues one at a time, I choose to focus on Compassion next. Let’s see what James has to say about Compassion.

Many teachers have spoken eloquently about compassion as the deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled to the desire to relieve that suffering. In the context of the new intelligence that is seating itself on our planet, compassion is an active desire to assist others to align with the new fields of intelligence that are manifesting in the three dimensional world, aware that their desire and ability to align is distorted by their social enculturation; it does not accurately reflect their intelligence, spiritual inclinations, or purpose.

Once again, I find my understanding of this term expanded by the Lyricus teachings. There is a “new field of intelligence” emerging in our world that is born of the Love frequency. This frequency vibrates at a higher rate, above and beyond the frequency of the distortion that “en-‘cult’-urates” our planetary societies. This distorted, manipulated enculturation does not truly represent Humanity’s potential or the divinely designed Human Blueprint. The desire arises within those of us who are cultivating our inner posture of Divine Love to give assistance to our fellow – to help them realign. To me it is the ultimate in “teaching someone to fish and feeding him for a lifetime.” Even to assist someone to SEE that there IS an enculturated distortion is a huge and noble gift.

The Journey into My Heart — Humility

The next of the Six Heart Virtues that appears for me in my personal ordering is Humility. I have always been a prideful, arrogant personality. Yes, it’s true. As “pride goeth before the fall” I have taken more than a few spills in this lifetime. I have been arrogant, often believing that my way is the only way and that I KNOW what is happening at the front lines of duality and beyond. In recent years this attitude has softened but it still pops up now and then. The difference is that I can recognize it more quickly and release my position more easily than I could even five or ten years ago.

I have felt “entitled” most of my life. I have always thought that I deserved far more of material things than I was able to provide for myself in this lifetime. At times I was jealous and miserable, seeing the wealth of others. I “made do” with much less and then prided myself that I was somehow better than those who had more. This has been a stony path and my feet have hurt a lot.

So Humility is a key Heart Virtue for me to work with and honestly, I have not focused on this one so much. Why are we not surprised?! Well, let’s get to it. Here is what James has to say about Humility.

The soul expresses the love frequency derived from First Source. It is its most important purpose, while embodied within the human instrument, to circulate this delicate, sublime frequency of love to the human instrument. It will come as no surprise that it finds the heart a more willing collaborator than the mind. Humility is the realization that the heart, mind and soul co-mingle in the grace of First Source. That their very existence is upheld through the dispensation of love from First Source just as surely as a tree is sustained by sunlight. Continue reading

The Journey into My Heart — Understanding — Conclusion and Summary

Six Virtues of the Heart

Six Virtues of the Heart

This post concludes my exploration of Understanding, one of the Six Virtues of the Heart, as presented by the Wingmakers/Lyricus Teaching Order. Over the past couple of months, my inquiry has uncovered many blessings and benefits, one of the most valuable for me has been my increased stability as a “frequency holder” in the midst of increasing chaos.

One of my teachers spoke to me about chaos being an outcome of too much information flooding a system that is too small to contain it. It results in busting the old system (paradigm) apart. That is exactly what I see happening on our world; the flood of incoming Light = Information is resulting in the turmoil and chaos we see around us. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we hold our center of Light in the midst of what appears to be certain destruction. And it is, for that which no longer serves the Whole.

Simultaneously, this increased Light (which each of us carries within our body) is laying the etheric foundation for the New Paradigm which is emerging from the ashes of the old. Many of us are noticing the evidence of this as well. However, the act of holding a stable, high vibrational frequency in the current times cannot be underestimated — it is truly HEROIC!

Tomas and I were speaking this morning of the blessing that this increase in stability has brought to our partnership. To all of you who are the Keepers of Your Own Flame — hold the course. And Thank You for diving deeply within to bring forth this miracle of birth that we are witnessing and experiencing at this momentous time on Earth. Continue reading

Continuing on with my personal insights regarding the Six Virtues of the Heart, according to the Wingmakers/Lyricus Teaching Order materials, authored by James Mahu. You can access Parts 1, 2 and 3 of my series, if you missed them. Today, I continue my inquiry into Understanding.

Herein is the paradox of being human: our innermost structure is divine love and our outermost structure is a means of experience for the innermost structure, but we have become entrained by the outer vehicle to the degree where we identify with it more than the occupant—our true self—inside.

I have not thought about this before, nor have I associated this paradox with “Understanding.” The foundational energy, of which all structures and non-structures are composed, is, at its core, Divine Love. Ideally, the outermost structure that is the experience-gathering tool of that Love will express only that Love. However, the consciousness that resides within the outer structure usually cements itself and its identity to/with the outer forms and remains blind to the Light within that is its true Self.
