The Fellowship of Awakening June 22, 2016
Teachers of God,
God is but Love, and therefore so am I.
I take the journey with you. For I share your doubts and fears a little while, that you may come to me who recognize the road by which all fears and doubts are overcome. We walk together. I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out, and now will lead you out with him. God's Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.
We're learning about being present these days. One major distraction is other people. Whether we're in love with them or angry at them or need to teach them a lesson or put them on a pedestal. Other people can distract us from the present. We need to learn of ourselves so we see ourselves in others. Admire beauty and talent in others because we are beautiful and talented. We also learn to be the presence of love and forgiveness and authenticity to the world. It's not easy, but the rewards are great. We are present to our lives. There is really nothing else to do. We're never alone. Never done playing.

Explanation of Images: Being present isn’t always an easy task, especially when we find someone attractive, influential, or powerful. We do gravitate toward certain others, of course. We form relationships and we work in communities of spirit to learn and grow. Sometimes we abandon our quest and seek the approval of another, and wander away from our task, our Hero’s Journey. The trick is to be be yourself at all times and be present to who the other is. Are they present? Are you interested in what they can do for you or who they are? The truth is we’re all at the banquet of this moment. We’re all related. We have the same parents and the same goals of being perfectly happy. We can begin now to see all our siblings as equal and deserving of our support and gratitude.
