I am/we are a perfect expression of perfect LOVE here and now…..Richard Bach
I was in a mall in Yakima Washington when I bought my first copy of ‘Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah”. As I came out of the bookstore I looked for a bench to sit on. No bench in sight, I perched myself on the masonry that surrounded the flowers in front of a store, leaned my back against the wall and began losing myself in the mastery of this small book.
Illusions touched a chord of awareness that lived inside of me. After reading Illusions I began looking at life in a different way. Questioning what was accepted as truth and asked if it really was true? Then I would get entrenched in what I considered life, becoming the sleep walker in the dream once again as I forgot to question what I was accepting.
When I felt small and helpless in the illusion of my life, this book with the blue feather on its front cover would re-appear for me to read once more. Each time I read this book I would move out of the complacency I was in and back into being a questioner not quite realizing that I was actively creating my life. That knowledge would come at a later time. Over the years, I have had and given away many copies of this very insightful book.
Here recently a dear friend of mine asked me if I had read Illusions II? There was an Illusions II? Well no! I had not read it so, I ordered it immediately. I am now in the process of reading another Richard Bach writing that brings not only my brain to life, my heart re-awakens too. A sweet reminder for me to question what I have lived and why I have chosen to live it. To wonder why I have drawn to me certain lessons, their relevance and purpose of these lessons in my life. Yet, most importantly the writings remind me to question what I have believed, which allows me the freedom to discard or move past the experiences that I have outgrown.
The teachers for our life lessons come in many forms. Sometimes a simple writing, sometimes it may be a person or an experience that wakes us from our slumber so, that we may question and create our dreams. If we never question we stay sleep walkers in life. We keep the knowledge of being the Creators and choosers of our life path buried inside. Without this knowledge we feel as if we have no choice but to be carried away in the current we have been told is life.
This is a powerful time of awakening. As you attract to you those things that make you look inside don’t shut them down in fear. Instead allow yourself to question. Why did I choose this? How has it assisted me? Is it still assisting me? What fear keeps me from letting this go? What would I prefer in my life? How do I create it? Who do I ask for help? Why do I not allow myself to ask for this help? Remember, this is an amazing journey of your design not something that is just happening to you.
