Are you a Jedai?

The ancient Jedai Priest used the language of light to tune the planet like a giant harmonic bell.  The translation of the word Jedai is “the way of the word” or “the power of the word”.  The language of light is that of Unconditional Love, and it will bring harmony to the planet.  The way or power of the word is sharing the truth of Unconditional Love that embraces both the love and fear as a part of our conditional experience.  As we individually embrace our own love and fear we create personal balance of our experience and minimize our own projection of fear into the world.  In doing this we become a mirror for those around us as an example of a balanced human being embracing their own love and fear.  The more of us that realize this balance the greater the opportunity to create balance or harmony for all human beings and our planet as a whole.

 

Are you a Jedai?

Are you interested in having a career or part-time job living and sharing Unconditional Love?  I am in the business of evolving consciousness and I am currently looking for full-time and part-time messengers and managers.  It is as easy as introducing me to a friend.  Check out my affiliate program:

The Solution to Terrorism

The solution to terrorism

To have a long-term solution for terrorism we need to understand the way that terrorism has become a part of our consciousness in everyday life. We also need to understand why terrorists kill and share it through social media to inflame terror in us. Although it is important to look for short-term solutions to create safety from the immediate threats of terrorism, they are not a long-term solution to terrorism itself. We cannot fight terrorism with behaviors that are propelled by our own fear.

We need to see and acknowledge the fear inside the hearts of terrorists themselves. This does not mean that we should not immediately take action to protect ourselves and others. It is important to do our best to swiftly create safety right here and now while moving toward a long-term solution that will last for future generations.

The root of terrorism is the terrorist’s projection of their own fear of not accepting the world just as it is. The world just as it is means a world filled with the diverse and evolving potentials we all have as human beings. Terrorist’s project their own fear of not being enough, not having enough, or not being in control, and take it out on others. They do this by trying to control and manipulate people by terrorizing them. This limits their potential to be a part of an evolving compassionate, all-inclusive, and supportive race of human beings working together to support the vision of a healthy, peaceful, and abundant world where all people coexist while celebrating and enjoying their differences.

The way to reflect to terrorists that it is their own fear that they are projecting, is to create a mirror large enough for them to see that the fear within themselves is being projected onto others. This mirror is truly something we each can be a part of. In fact, it is each of us that need to be a part of this mirror so that there is no doubt in the truth that is being reflected.

As human beings we experience life through a nervous system designed to sense fear to help with our survival in a conditional world. As we embrace this fear as a part of being human we begin to own our fear as an individual without projecting our own fear into the world. As we own our own fear, we allow the space for a greater love of who we are as a human being to become a mirror for others around us. We begin practicing owning our own fear together. As more of us practice owning our own fear together, as a part of being human, we become an even greater mirror for the world as a whole. Then we can be a mirror large enough for terrorists to undeniably see, that the terror they are inflicting on the world, is really the fear that they don’t want to face inside themselves. As the world sees the behavior of a terrorist as a behavior that is determined by the terrorist’s own fear, we can disarm a terrorist’s greatest weapon that is “terrorism” itself. When the majority of us as humans practice together owning our own fear, we are able to reflect the inner fear that the terrorist is projecting onto the world at large. When this is done, there is nowhere terrorists can hide from facing the deepest fear inside themselves that is propelling their behavior and creating the projection of terror and fear.

As individuals working with owning our own fear, we need to move past our own fear of fear that causes us to be caught in our own heart-head loop trying to avoid it or figure it out. As Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. To begin moving past the heart-head loop, and the constant thinking that we are experiencing from the acts of terror and fear in our everyday life, we need to learn how to stay grounded in the depth of love and wisdom that we are capable of as human beings. In this way we can act swiftly with clarity, Integrity, and authenticity within ourselves. We can act to immediately provide safety while reflecting acts of terror as a deep fear within all terrorists that is being projected on us. Terrorists avoid experiencing their own fear by making others experience fear in their hearts. They do this rather than being honest with themselves and owning their deep fear of humanness itself. Once we see this clearly, we can continue to practice living a courageous and sensational life together, without the fear of fear, or the projections of terrorists that can consume our thinking mind. We can move forward with the vision of love and clarity as we create an all inclusive world of peaceful coexistence.

I am offering a free video that teaches us how to practice moving past our fear of fear, seeing things as they are, and acting with deep clarity to establish a future world where all human beings can live a loving, truthful, and sensational life.

VISION

I thank you for allowing me to share with you my process of accepting my fear of judgment and blame. I have been doing this through a form of psychology I was taught at a young age known as Self Integrative Therapy or Meditation Psychology. I started this process because I wanted to be able to express myself in a way I could be understood without any feelings of judgment or blame. During this process I have done things that directly challenge me with these fears. I have started my own business, became a model, and started writing letters about this process, sharing it on the Internet and with all my friends. I felt by doing this I could find an expression of my self that could be understood. I have been writing these letters To the “One” I Love, “One” meaning the “One” I see in all of us. This is because I look for the unconditional in all of us, even though sometimes it is not completely understood. In doing this I accept my fears of you and accept you as you and not the conditions I am seeing. I felt that if I found an unconditional expression of myself, that the unconditional you I see in you would be able to understand me as my unconditional self and not the conditions you are seeing. I wanted to share this process with you because my dream is to share a place we can get together and support, learn, and share with each other in finding our own individual unconditional expression, before any beliefs or conditions we may have, for the love we each share. I want to share with you this psychological balance, I was taught as a child, between what it is we feel inside and what it is we want to share in our world, in a way we would understand. This place would be in the form of a retreat center. A place where we could learn to approach our lives unconditionally and learn to live unconditionally in a world of conditions. This retreat center would be based on the understanding of each other and our experience rather than what’s right or wrong. It is the understanding of each other and our experience that allows the opportunity for change. The more of us that learn to live unconditionally, the easier it is for others to do the same.

To feel unconditional love
We must unconditionally love.
When we are unconditionally loved
our mind and hearts are at ease.
Truth lies in the
unconditional love
of
each other.

Living Unconditionally

To the “One” I love,
In getting to know each other there are many fears between us that keep us apart. These fears are from the many different experiences each of us has had growing up. These fears have created conditions to the Love we each share. In getting to Know each other we will come across these conditions or fears each of us have. In supporting each other in learning, understanding and accepting these fears together, we can share them in away we each can understand. For every fear that comes up we each are the extremes. By accepting each other with every fear, we are completely accepting the situation allowing for each of us to find our own unconditional expression to the experience. Supporting each other in accepting our own fears, we are helping each other find our own individual unconditional expression or gift to life. Your unconditional expression of life is your gift to me, and my unconditional expression of life is my gift to you. The more of our own fears (conditions) we accept, the more we understand each other, the more our love becomes unconditional. The more our love becomes unconditional the more our expression together becomes our gift to life. In supporting each other in finding our own individual unconditional expression or gift to life, we must first understand and accept that we live in a life created by conditions, meaning not completely understanding. It is unconditionally loving meaning completely learning, understanding, and accepting these conditions that allows us to explain them in away that can be understood or accepted. It is through accepting these conditions that allows us to live our unconditional expression, which is the expression that allows the opportunity for change. For example if I were to completely understand and accept or unconditionally love myself and all my conditions, I would be able to explain or express myself so that you could change your understanding of me as me and not the conditions you are seeing. Because our everyday life is filled with so many conditions I am asking you to sit with me and practice unconditionally loving ourselves for ourselves and each other. In doing this we can increase the amount of information (conditions) we can learn, understand, accept, unconditionally love in each moment of our lives. I am also asking you to continually share with me and me with you ways we learn to accept our fear with unconditional love. In doing this we can learn, understand, and accept to live an unconditional life in a life of conditions.

To feel unconditional love
We must unconditionally love.
The path to
unconditional love
is to
love.
This starts by
unconditionally loving
our 
fear 
with
love.

Conditions

To the “ONE” I love,
I want to share with you my feelings on change. As far as who I am as Me I don’t ever change. From the past, to the present, and on to the future, there is no difference to who I am as ME as Unconditional Love. This is my true being or true nature. What does change is how I choose to respond, react, and express myself to the outside world. This choice of how to respond, react and express myself is made through the experience of a world based on conditioning. Because of the multitude of experiences, I am conditioned to defend myself from the endless amounts of information. When a new experience gives me so much information all at once, and I don’t have time to figure it out, I choose in haste a response from my memory of reactions from past experiences, to stop the overwhelming amount of information I feel in my heart. Because the decision is made quickly, I choose a response that I have seen or done a lot in my life. If similar experiences come up in my life, which they always do, and I don’t take the time to understand the experience, I choose the same response until it becomes a reaction I don’t have to think about, and in turn becomes my expression.
Because the expression is from not completely understanding the experience, it is not easily understood, unless someone has similar expressions or lived similar experiences. Since the reaction is now an expression I use it, so as not to add to my thinking, until the time comes when I am forced by life or decide to completely understand the experience so that I can be more easily understood.
I can’t change who I am as Me, but I can decide to understand my experiences as Me, and not my reactions, and change my expression so that I can be more easily understood. To completely understand the experience I would normally have to think about the experience so that I can explain it in away that I can accept the experience as Me. By accepting the experience as Me it is completely understood. However if I understand that the experience is a part of who I am as Me, and not my expression or the expression I am seeing, I can go directly to understanding and accepting the experience, giving me the opportunity to change my expression so I could be understood.
I can go directly to accepting the experience because even though the expression is different in every experience the information is felt in my body in the same way. Therefore the information can be accepted physically, instead of mentally trying to think about it in a way I can understand and then accept. In this way of accepting my experiences physically I can understand and accept much more information than if I had to think about it. If I do not completely understand or accept the experience my response, reaction, and expression is conditional. On the other hand if I completely understand or accept the experience my response, reaction, and expression is unconditional. The more experiences I have where my expression is unconditional, the more I understand, and the more easily I am understood.

To feel understood
I must understand.
Do I want to be
conditioned
by my humanity
or
unconditioned
by Me?
To feel unconditional love
I must unconditionally love.
The path to unconditional love
is to love.


What does it mean to be conditioned by my Humanity or unconditioned by Me? My Humanity is conditioned to think or want from an experience by the fear of understanding something I don’t accept, or the fear of not understanding something I do accept. If I accept one fear and not the other or neither in an experience, then my response is from fear or not completely understanding the experience. Therefore my response is conditioned, meaning from fear or not completely understanding the experience. This causes my Humanity fear, of not being able to explain something in a way I can understand and accept, to become the expression of Me. On the other hand if I understand and accept myself as unconditional love I can accept both fears / extremes, allowing my response to be unconditioned or completely understanding the experience. Therefore because my response is from unconditional love meaning complete acceptance, I become an unconditioned expression of my humanity, allowing me to be understood. Unconditional love or complete acceptance is possible, I just have to understand/accept that it is unconditional love that I really want or fear!!!

The more my expression is
Unconditional
the more my Mind and Heart
are at ease.
Do I want to be
Conditioned
by my Humanity
or
Unconditioned
by Me?
To feel understood, accepted, Unconditionally Loved
I must understand, accept, Unconditional Love.
The path to Unconditional Love 
is to
Love.
Truth lies in the unconditional love
or acceptance of
each other.

Practice

I want to live with Love not Fear!!!
To the “ONE” I love,
I want to thank you for the continual opportunity you are allowing me to share with you my process of getting to know (understand and accept) Me as Unconditional Love. I feel I was born into a world I intuitively Knew everything, and yet I Knew nothing at all; I intuitively Understood everything, and yet Understood nothing at all; I intuitively Accepted everything, and yet Accepted nothing at all; Where I Unconditionally Loved everything, and yet Unconditionally Love nothing at all.
My Life all along has been teaching me to Know…Understand… Accept… Unconditionally Love Life, allowing for Life the opportunity to change. I find that all of my reactions or expressions from an experience or lesson in Life stem from either Unconditional Love (completely understanding and accepting) or Fear (not completely understanding and accepting). If I accept the situation and not myself in the situation or I accept myself and not the situation this is only accepting 50% of the experience, and so my reaction \ expression is from fear or not completely understanding and accepting the experience. If I accept both the situation and myself in the situation I am 100% completely understanding and accepting the experience. This allows for my reaction or expression to be from unconditional love, giving that part of my life the opportunity to change.
Continually expressing or reacting to the experience with fear only adds to the fear of the experience making it harder for that part of my life to change. The more I completely accept my experiences of life the more my expressions or reactions of life come from unconditional love. This makes my expression or reaction easier to understand, giving life the opportunity to change. Knowing that life will continually give me the experience I need to learn until it is completely accepted, I accept as much of the experience as possible at each opportunity making it a little easier every time.
An example for accepting fear is; if I were to learn how to sky dive out of a plane. If every time I stepped up to the edge of the plane door I closed my eyes, this would be a reaction so as not to feel the fear of looking down. Doing this would never give me the opportunity to accept this fear. On the other hand if I opened my eyes and stood in the door way as long as I could before jumping, eventually after so many jumps I would accept all the fear. This would allow me to stand in the door way completely accepting the experience. This is an extreme example of fear that can be felt in an experience like many others.
However Most of my fears are so subtle they are covered by my reaction of thinking (I think to understand or know and “I only fear what I don’t understand or know”). I am at the most peace in my life when I am not thinking and my expression is completely unconditional (this includes anything I enjoy doing, generally something I do best). To be able to unconditionally accept a situation or fear I must be willing to Feel it. Anticipation (fear) of fear is worse than the experience of fear alone (one fear is easier than two). When I acknowledge…understand…accept…unconditionally love this part of my life I can start being open to change.
If there is an experience in life that I wish to start change, I find that I can increase the amount of information (fear) that I can learn…understand…accept…and then unconditionally love in any one opportunity of that experience. So as an example; if an experience would normally take me 5-10 times experiencing it to completely accept it and find the unconditional expression, I can completely accept it in 1-2 times of experiencing it.
I do this by Accepting (unconditionally loving) my fear with love. I first keep my eyes open to the experience and acknowledge that it is my own fear I am facing. I then relax my body to feel my fear by breathing into my lower abdomen where the center of my being, the core and source of my unconditional love lies. Next I acknowledge every inhalation as the unconditional breath of Life and I acknowledge every exhalation as the unconditional breath of Death. It is when these three forms of unconditional love meet in each moment between Life and Death where I am in complete acceptance of my experience, and my mind and heart are at ease. This is accepting (Unconditionally Loving) my fear with love, and this is what I practice.
I practice with my eyes open because this is how I face my everyday life, and I want to take this form of learning or accepting into my every day life and learn or accept my experiences as I live them. I breath into my lower abdomen because it relaxes my body so that I can tell how it is reacting to my fear. Sometimes I tighten my stomach or hold my shoulders stiff. By continually breathing into my lower abdomen I can acknowledge these tensions and continue to relax my body. At this point my mind races with thinking and my head is filled with Fear of the Unknown. This is where I start to follow my breathing. I follow my breathing because it was unconditionally given to me at birth and is unconditionally taken at death. I call this returning to the basics of unconditional. While breathing into my lower abdomen, with my eyes open, and acknowledging each inhalation and exhalation, I allow myself to feel the small quivering tension of fear in my chest. This fear comes from whatever I am thinking of or whatever experience I am facing. I then focus my attention to the point of complete acceptance or unconditional love, between the unconditional breath of life and death, and the point or source of my own unconditional love in my lower abdomen. This allows me to completely accept both the experience between life and death and myself in the experience between life and death.
Like jumping out of the plane, the more I allow myself to feel or accept the experience of fear in any one situation, the sooner it is completely accepted, the sooner I come to the unconditional response. The more unconditional responses I learn…understand…accept…unconditionally love, the closer I get to my unconditional expression of life. The more my expression or explanation of life is unconditional, the more of life I know… understand… accept… unconditionally love, the more my mind and heart are at ease.
I practice this 15-30 minutes 5-6 days a week sometimes twice a day, with the least amount of distractions possible. This is where at first it was most difficult, but after awhile when it became a part of who I am, I look forward to this time with myself in silence.
Because I need to breath to live, I also take this practice everywhere I go and practice in every aspect of my life and learn or accept my life as I live it. I do this because I know the more I practice something the easier it gets and the more it becomes a part of me. I want to do this form of learning, understanding, and accepting because the sooner my expressions become unconditional the more I know about me as unconditional love, and the more my mind and heart are at ease. To feel unconditional love I must unconditionally love, and it is unconditional love that I really Want or Fear!!!

Truth lies in the unconditional love or
acceptance of each other.
I am living my life with Love not fear!!!

Unconditional Love

Acceptance is unconditional Love!
Do I Fear that which I seek?
To feel Unconditional Love
I must Unconditionally Love.
The Path to Unconditional Love
is to
Love.
Accepting
(Unconditionally Loving)
My
Fear
with
Love.

To the “One” I Love
I want to thank you for all the lessons (fear) I have learned (accepted) since my last writings. The more I learn (accept) about myself the more I am finding that I am learning (accepting) something I once Knew Or felt. When I was younger I Knew and felt what Unconditional Love is. As I was living my life I started getting so much information (fear) I couldn’t understand (accept), I reacted in ways I best knew at the time to stop the pain, suffering, and sadness I felt in my heart. The more reactions I learn to stop or ignore the fear I feel, the further I grow from Unconditional Love. When I find that it is Unconditional Love that I am looking for, I continue on my path and Accept my Fear with Love. I Know that if I completely Accept something or someone, this is Unconditional Love, and to feel Unconditional Love I must unconditionally Love. Acceptance is Unconditional Love, and Truth lies in the Acceptance of each other.With all the Fear that’s in the world, where do I start Accepting? I start by accepting where I am at in my life, Mentally, Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually. By Accepting or Unconditionally Loving myself in these four areas I create a balance and a base at which I can learn, grow, and change with life. The more I learn, grow, and change in these areas; the more I find ways to express how I really feel;and the more I have the opportunity to learn, grow, and change with life. When I Accept or unconditionally Love myself in these four areas, I am ready to share my Unconditionally love with someone else. The path to unconditional Love is to Love… I start by Accepting my Fear with Love. Acceptance is Unconditional Love and Truth lies in the Acceptance of each other.

If it is Unconditional Love
that I Want
does it matter how I’m taught
to Accept
my
Fear of it.
When I want something to be different it means I don’t understand
So a wanting heart means I don’t understand.
“I only fear what I don’t understand.”
So a wanting heart means I am afraid.
Thinking is one of my reactions to fear.
So a wanting heart causes me to think.
To be Human is to be afraid.
To be Human is to want or think.
To be me is to Unconditionally Love.
My Humanity teaches me to
Learn, Understand, and Accept 
Me as 
Unconditional Love.

Unconditional Love is taught in many Ways, in many cultures, from East to West. Growing up, two Ways that I was mostly taught, amongst others, were Judeo-Christian and Buddhism.
In a quote from the Old Testament, Exodus 20:20-21, it is written: Moses Said to the people, “Do not be afraid [misunderstand] for God has come only to test [teach] you and to put the fear [thought or information] of him upon you so that you do not sin [miss the mark]. Then the people stood at a distance while Moses drew near the thick darkness [no thought or fear] where God [unconditional love] was. ”
The New Testament teaches us about God through the example of Jesus Christ. Jesus himself is an example of Unconditional Love. The definition of sin is to miss the mark. The mark is Jesus Christ as our example, and Jesus is an example of Unconditional Love.
In one of the important scriptures of Buddhism known as the Heart Sutra (Heart Teachings) it is written: …The Bodhisattva [Enlightened Being, Soul, Spirit, Buddha Nature] lives prajna paramita [original compassion-wisdom or Unconditional Love] with no hindrance in the mind [no Thought], no hindrance, therefore no fear exists. Far beyond deluded thoughts [fear], this is Nirvana [a world of Unconditional Love]. All past, present, and future Buddhas [people who accept Fear with Love] live prajna paramita [original compassion- wisdom or Unconditional Love] and therefore attain Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi [Enlightenment or Unconditional Love].
I know that in world of right and wrong, that started from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, I can not live without fear; but I can learn (accept) the Truth by Accepting my Fear with Love. Acceptance is Unconditional Love and Truth lies in Acceptance of each other.

Do I Fear that which I seek?
To feel Unconditional Love
I must Unconditionally Love.

Fear

My heart is made for loving!
My fear is made for accepting!
Know-ledge
comes from
Accepting 
my 
Fear!

To the “One” I Love,
If fear, no matter how large or small, is Life as my teacher’s way of teaching me to learn, understand, and then accept myself—then what is fear to me? Fear to me is life as my teacher giving me information that I need to learn, understand, and accept about me. Sometimes Life’s information (fear) is easier to accept than others. Certain situations are easier because I have already learned and accepted parts of the situation from previous experiences. Sometimes if there was too much information (fear) in a situation I don’t understand or accept, I want the situation to be different, and I feel it in my heart. At this point I accept as much as I can. Then I react in the best way I Know at the time to protect myself from the pain, suffering, and sadness I feel in my heart.
I find that the more I accept the fear or information that life has to offer, the more I KNOW about myself, and the more I find ways to express how I really feel. The more I express how I really feel in a way I can accept, the more I have the opportunity to learn, grow, and change with Life. The more I learn, grow, and change with Life, the more I am happy; and all I really want out of my life is to be happy! I know that in a world of right or wrong I can not live without fear, but I can learn the truth by accepting my fear with love. My heart is made for loving, my fear is made for accepting. If life as my teacher KNOWS the Truth, by accepting all that it has to offer, whether it be right or wrong, success or failure, rich or poor, East or West, Life or Death… it will make whatever the truth is in-between easier to accept.
Knowledge comes from accepting my fear. The truth for one may not be the truth for another, but the truth for both lies in the acceptance of each other. Do I want to be right or wrong or do I want to accept the truth. The more I accept the truth of what my life as my teacher already knows, the more I am happy, and all I really want is to be happy!
I know that there are many Ways of living life that make it easier to accept the fear I face every day. I am learning, understanding, and accepting many of these ways, and I look forward to learning, understanding, and accepting so many more.
There was a Way that I was taught as a child of how to accept my fear, and I have lived this Way most of my life. I was taught how to accept my thoughts so that I can bodily know before my thinking. In this practice of observing and accepting my thoughts I notice that if I want them to be different, I feel it in my heart. If I want them to be different, it means that I have not accepted them yet.
At the same time I was taught to accept my thoughts so that I could bodily know before my thinking, I was also taught how to accept my fear so I could rest my heart in not-wanting. This helps me to have a complete loving acceptance of whatever I am facing. I know through my experiences that if I am to become better at something I will have to work at it through consistent daily practice. I now practice 15 minutes to a half hour 5 to 6 days a week. I know that as I practice I will get better at it, and I continue to take this form of acceptance into my everyday life and accept my fear with all of my love.
The more I accept my fear with love, the easier it gets. The more fear I accept, the more I know about myself—the more I find ways to express how I really feel. The more I express how I really feel in ways that I can accept, the more I have the opportunity to learn, grow, and change with Life. The more I accept about my life, the more I learn, grow, and change with It. The more I learn, grow, and change with Life, the more I am happy; and all I want out of my life is to be happy! The bonus to making my life easier and happier, by accepting my fear with love, is that I am accepting my fear of Life. This only makes me happier because it feels like I am doing my part in accepting life—-giving life the opportunity to change!

Do I want to be right or wrong?
or
Do I want to accept the truth!
When I accept something, it provides me an 
opportunity to change.
I want to live with love not fear.
Truth lies in the acceptance of
each other.
Love, Dawn Shining Eyes

Acceptance

The truth for one may not be the truth for another,
but the truth for both lies in the acceptance of each other.
If life is learning and learning is understanding,
and understanding is accepting, why do we not accept it?
“We only fear what we don’t understand”.
What is understanding?
Do I want to be right or wrong?
or
Do I want to learn the truth?
When I want something to be different,
I feel it in my heart.
When I want something to be different, 
it means I do not understand.
When I understand something , it gives an 
opportunity for change.
When I do not understand something,
it makes me think.
I feel there is so much to think about.
I want to live with love not fear!
My heart is made for loving!
My fear is made for accepting!
Know-ledge 
comes from 
Accepting
my
Fear!

To the “One” I love!
I want to thank you for the opportunity you have given, to get to Know Me. I want to tell you what I have learned, up to this point in my life, because I know there is so much more to learn about Me. I feel I am always learning about me, whether I realize it or not; and the times that are the hardest for me to realize, are the times I learn the most! This is how I came to the conclusion that life is learning, not just about me, but also about survival in a world with so much uncertainty. So what is learning to me? Learning to me means that I am trying to understand something; and if I understand it, it makes it easier to accept it; and if I accept it, I can give the opportunity to change it. The more I learn about myself, the more I understand about myself. The more I understand about myself, the more I accept about myself. The more I accept about myself, the more I have the opportunity to change.
Why do I want to change? I want to change because life is always changing and because I am learning and growing. I want to always learn, grow, and change with Life. Why do I want to learn, grow, and change with Life? Because it causes me pain, suffering, and sadness when I don’t, and all I really want out of my life is to be happy! This is why I say “Change is Good”.
In Life I need a way to learn, understand, and accept myself so that I can change with It. What makes the most sense to me is that Life is learning, and if Life is learning then the Lesson or Teacher is my life. The first thing I accept is that Life is my Teacher and as my Teacher, Life Knows the lessons I need to learn, understand, and accept whatever they may be. As my Teacher, Life teaches me to learn, grow, and change with it.
To help the process of accepting a situation in life, I think about extremes in Life, like right and wrong, success and failure, rich and poor, East and West, Life and Death…. By accepting extremes it seems to make whatever happens in-between a lot easier to accept. In fact it helps me even more because I learn everything of what life has to offer in any one situation. This is great, and it helps me out in a lot of situations when I have the time to think about it.
Sometimes when life gives me too much to think about I do something to stop my thinking. When a situation in Life gives me too much to think about all at once, I react in a way so as not to think about it, learn it, understand it, and accept it. I find, however, that it is O.K. if I miss the lesson, for Life as my teacher always gives me another chance. No matter how many times it takes to learn, understand, and accept the situation or lesson, Life as my teacher is very understanding, compassionate, and patient. Life continually gives me the lesson until I make the time to learn, understand, and accept it.
Sometimes I have so many lessons that I can not stop thinking. At this point I start looking at what thinking is to me. Why am I thinking? I want to explain what is happening to me in a way that I can understand and then accept. If I can accept what is happening, I can give the opportunity to change it or just feel more at ease with it. Sometimes it feels like I don’t have enough information to understand; but I know if I had the opportunity or time to figure it out, I can eventually understand. This creates more thinking, but teaches me that I am thinking only so that I can understand something. I realize that if I want to learn, understand and then accept something, I have to think about it.
This brings up an interesting point for me because I have always heard that “We Only Fear what we don’t Understand!”. I have come to the understanding that thinking is one of my reactions to fear, no matter how large or small the fear is. In learning this about myself I want so much for my life to be different, because this means that I am living most of my life with fear, and what I really want is to live my life with love not fear! I know that I only want my life to be different because I don’t understand it, and it is making me think too much.
I stopped thinking so much and started asking questions about how other people live their life and how they understand it so they can accept it. In the process I have made many friends, all who I love very Much–friends that have found ways to live in a world of right and wrong. Because I have many different friends that I care about, I don’t want any one of them to be right or wrong. I only want to learn the truth! So the more I learn about each one of my friends, the more I understand them and the more I accept who they are. The more I accept who they are, the more I find they are saying the same things, just in different words. They are all describing life in a way so that they can accept it.
The more ways I learn, understand and accept of how others describe life, the more I know how I want to express myself so I can describe life in a way I can accept. The more about life I accept inside myself, the more opportunity there is for change. Just because I accept something doesn’t mean it is right or wrong–it just means that I accept it. I look forward to accepting so much more!

The truth for one may not be the truth for another,
but the truth for both lies in the acceptance of each other.
If life is accepting,
why do I not accept it?
I only fear what I don’t accept.
Do I want to be right or wrong?
or 
Do I want to accept the truth!
When I want something to be different,
I feel it in my heart.
When I want something to be different,
it means I do not accept it.
When I accept something, it provides an
opportunity for change.
When I do not accept something,
it makes me afraid.
I feel there is so much to be afraid of.
I want to live with love not fear!
