From my personal notes - October 30, 2011:
The reason I am not writing a new blog post is because I am spending too much time on the Internet. I am allowing this to distract me from spending time with myself. In order to write a post I need to allow the message to come to me. The past two that I have written are not formulated in my mind. If they were they would not resonate with the reader. They are from inner wisdom. It may be too much to say they were transmitted from a divine source, but then again that is the only way I can explain it. Whenever I schedule time and try to write, it ends up coming from a place in my mind. I hit numerous roadblocks and the writing fizzles out. Though I have only written two posts and a couple responses to questions, I know the feeling of letting the message flow through me. And I know that when I spend so much time on the computer browsing the Internet and on Facebook, I distract the message from coming to me.
It is selfish of me.
When we do not allow ourselves to be our truest expression we rob the world of something that belongs here. Distractions are everywhere and they are plentiful. There are the obvious distractions of drugs and alcohol. Then there are those that may not seem as harmful such as television, Internet, music, video games, chatting on the telephone, reading books, watching movies, food, porn, shopping... The list goes on and on. Some of these may seem less abusive but all can be distractions none the less. Each of these activities are not bad in and of themselves. One might say all are fine but "moderation is key." However, even better than that is to say "be aware of your purpose." Why are you reaching for your cell phone every five minutes to check if anyone has called? Why do you spend the majority of your time at home playing video games or on the Internet? Why is there always an electronic device within an arm's reach of you whether you are on the road, at home or at lunch? Have you taken the time to think of why this might be, or asked yourself "how is it affecting me?"

How many times have you sat down at the computer to check your email and a couple hours later you find that you have managed to visit Facebook, do some online shopping, catch up on current events, see what the celebrities are up to, play games, and read your favorite blogs (don’t leave yet!). What were you planning on doing with that time? Me, I was planning on doing nothing with that time and just allowing myself to be me. To exist. To enjoy my own company. But for some reason I spent it taking up company with messages, ideas, and news about things that may or may not be true. Why do I allow the lives of other people to be my entertainment? Why do I let someone else's brain do my thinking? Why is it that I cannot imagine being alone with myself? We spend so much time listening to other people tell us about doctrines and dogmas and rules- what is right, what is wrong and why. We spend so much time letting others tell us how it is when all of our answers and our truth are within us. The more we allow the voices and messages of other people to speak over what we have inside, the weaker our inner voice gets until we may not even hear it at all.
Steve jobs is a perfect example of a human being who paid attention to his inner voice and lived a life that was true to himself. He was brilliant and created amazing things. But ironically the things he created have served to be distractions for many people from embodying who they truly are. The lesson learned is to not let someone else's truth and life overshadow your own.
The reason I bring all this up is because right now in this life we are being called to end the SEPARATION. We are in a time period in which the Universe* is asking us to come back to who we really are. It is calling us back to the truth. To simplify things for the point of discussion, there are two sides in this Separation:
- There is the real You. This is who you are in your soul, your God self.
- Then their is your ego, your personality, the part of you that you can change superficially with thought and behavior. This is your false self.

Unfortunately a lot of what we do in our personal time is being used in a way to distract us from seeing the truth. The consciousness is rising. And while people are waking up, the pull towards these distractions will become even stronger. The greatest resistance to growth only comes when there is a threat to the way things are. Now is the time to get to know who you are. Now is the time to understand how your reality relates to your beliefs.
We have a right and responsibility to take part in our lives. Yet, we also have the choice to not take part. We can allow ourselves to be distracted. Or we can show up and be who we were born to be. While this life is your own, you share it with every other piece of life in the Universe. We are all one part of the Whole. How are you contributing?

Now before I go on throwing that word around I should share with you that I will use the terms "God" "The Universe" "The Mother" "Prime Source" and "The One" regularly and I will mean the same thing every time. You say pot-ay-to I say pot-aw-to.
