I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Five and the concept of the service-to-others aspect of earning a living:
Service-to-others aspect of earning a living
Seek first the consciousness of love through meditation and analysis of action and thought, and that which is needed shall be given unto you according to the circumstances needed by you in your own opinion before this incarnational experience. All shall be given to you, for you see, no matter what the illusion of manipulation and manifestation may be, all this can be given unto you. All is indeed free. And that which is not, will not be. Each has designed for himself a special incarnation offering powerful experiences of lack and plenty, pain and peace. If you have little money, think not that you do not deserve more. If you have much money, think not that you deserve less. But whatever your environment, fill it with your love of the Creator and allow that love to reach to the infinity of the Creator’s laughing face, that His light may shine infinitely through you that you may become plenty to others. Q’uo, December 20, 1986
Q’uo suggested that each of us has planned incarnations within this third-density illusion which are full of qualities that we have chosen to help us move along our spiritual path. Q’uo suggested that we keep foremost in our minds and desires to love and serve the Creator: the Creator in the creation, in other selves, and in our self as well. In most cases we will be able to earn a sufficient amount of money to be able support ourselves at the simplest level of need.
Whatever the circumstances of our standard of living are, we have very likely chosen them before this incarnation. They will be a beginning point that will provide us a path to spiritual progress that we will very likely recognize to be of paramount importance. If we place our focus on our spiritual journeys, we will very likely also find a way to pay our bills. However, if we should ever have any doubt about how to manifest a means of earning a living that is of service to others, Q’uo suggested that we utilize meditation to find our innermost consciousness of love to provide the direction most helpful for us to travel. Meditation is a good means by which our guides, our subconscious mind, our higher self, and even the Creator can communicate thoughts, images, and words that can give the best direction in which to move and choices to make regarding how we may find work that is inspiring to us and of service to others. Most often this guidance is likely to be in congruence with our pre-incarnative choices.
The great value of groups that come together in order to serve is that they reflect two ways. They reflect out into the world, as is the conscious intention of such a group. One is able to create, as an offer to the community, projects and systematic attempts to serve that are able to be offered over a period of time with steadiness and stability. This takes a group of people out of themselves and lets them have a look at living their beliefs in such a way that they are truly of service to others.Q’uo, August 25, 2005
In this quote Q’uo is speaking of a general quality of how, when we work together in groups, that we have the opportunity of putting our basic beliefs of how to be of service to others into a means of living our beliefs. Each within the group contributes ideas and energy as to how we can be of service more effectively. This is a far more spiritually-oriented means of working that puts our core beliefs into action in a steady and stable way that serves others most effectively. It is a way of life and work that does not seek financial gain as the main reason for our work. Such financial gain may, indeed, also be realized, but it is more of a side effect of our work efforts that seek most purely to offer assistance to any who we may encounter in our chosen line of work.
In this quote Q’uo shared the overview of how our right livelihood of earning a living is undergoing a change of purification at this time:
You ask this day what is the proper attitude to take in discovering your “right livelihood,” as you call it, the means by which you offer your services to others in the manner in which you receive recompense for such. This is a question which is well worth consideration, especially in the times in which you now exist, for they are gradually, at the moment, changing into that which is of a more harmonious nature from that which has been based upon the exchange of monetary emolument, realizing no innate justifiable purpose for codifying and mystifying the nature of value. For those who would seek their own ends in a selfish manner have made that which you call your “monetary system” their method of manipulation. This is, shall we say, the old way, which has long existed upon your planet and in which all entities, both those positively oriented and those negatively oriented, have found themselves dealing with for the length of their incarnations. It is a kind of attitude which sees people as commodities and things to be used, to be valued in the using, without concern for the heart of being that beats within each, and has the potential of realizing so very much more in the simple accomplishment of a task and reward as if it were a carrot and a stick.
You seek this day and all days from now on, and have for some time, the means by which you may realize a more harmonious manner of choosing how you shall expend your energies, and for what reason you shall act in that manner, for you are all conscious seekers of truth. You are all those that have become aware that the universe in which you live is not made up of separation and individuals that have no relationship to each other, other than the monetary exchange between them. You realize that the One Creator exists in all entities and all things, and you wish to honor and glorify that One Creator in every instance in which you partake. Thus is the rightness of your livelihood defined: that which honors the Creator of all and seeks the Creator of all and reflects the Creator of all. Thus, my friends, as you ponder with your heart, with your mind, with your emotions, and with what you may call your intuition, how to proceed upon this new path of right livelihood, we would suggest that you utilize all of these assets that are yours in order to give yourself a rounded picture, shall we say, of possibilities. Q’uo, January 7, 2017.
This is, indeed, the work of the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life.
This morning I went outside and completed the transplanting of flowers within the flower garden in the center of the Moss Garden and also in the gardens along the parking area in the front of the house. It looks like there are just two more areas in the yard that will need some additional flowers. Then I used my large mower to cut the grass.
This afternoon I went outside and used my trimmer to trim all around the yard where the mower could not go. This is the longest and hardest work of cutting grass as what is actually happening is that I am outlining each garden, tree, bush, and walkway with my trimmer. After the trimming was complete I used my backpack blower to blow all of the walkways clean.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
The Touch Of The Spirit
I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the consciousness of love.
We find this instrument contemplating the lightness of our touch upon its consciousness. Would this instrument wish the Holy Spirit to come upon it in such power that it were struck blind? There are times when the spirit must come upon one or many in the boldest strokes of light and thunder. Yet far more often is the spirit’s influence felt in the light movements of the wind of love’s consciousness upon the texture and fabric of your illusion.
Yet if it is desired that greater light in greater strength strike the life, the pilgrim may seek to condemn, vilify and persecute those things which it does not understand. Then the spirit, soft and sweet, becomes dire and terrible and light becomes awesome.
May your ways be unbound by judgment and may the spirit touch you in peace, now and always. Amen.
I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:
We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.
