Today, I want to make clear why I write these daily blogs — at least for the last 129 days! Many times I use the #visionaryfiction because virtually all of my posts revolve around principles of self-awakening and self-awareness that focus on the possibilities that we possess as human beings. My take on transformation and true self-actualization relies on our hearing our own hearts, that internal, deepest, core Self.
Hearing that voice and evolving spiritually is a life-long process. We grow, and if we are growing spiritually, we need fresh revelation to write the new chapters of our lives. When I quit teaching, I knew that my heart was telling me to continue helping people discover, but now it would be through the medium of writing.
Visionary fiction, for now, accomplishes that means of discovery in story form, one to which I hope many will relate. In my first novel, The Fellowship of the Heart, I illustrate the self-awakening of a couple facing turning points in their lives. They come to the point where they hear their own hearts revealing who they really are as core Self, and all the implications and ramifications of that in all areas of life, which is why I have referred to my concept of choosing to hear our hearts over listening to ego as the Unified Field Theory of Humanity/Human Nature.
Every post that I have written, in fact all of my decisions, revolve around this principle, which is why I often tag with visionary fiction. I see it in relation to current events, historical movements — everything really. In terms of humanity, relationships, and reality, those who are in the true fellowship of the heart care little for politics, nationalism, or ego games of any kind. My friends, the fellowship of the heart is about no-nonsense reality, and that includes true love for humanity.
At times, we are required to respond to events around us. Therefore, when something occurs like the horrible incident in Orlando, Florida, I see it in reference to the decisions that the stakeholders, all the players, make in reference to their hearts and respect for ALL humanity. By the way, the whole game-playing of politicians of who says what words and what slant they take on it makes me absolutely gag.
I will refrain from saying any more here in reference to politics or politicians; I care deeply for those whose lives were lost and whose families and friends have been so drastically altered. The only consolation for any and all involved is turning to the voice of their own hearts; hence, I will share some words from my novel that you may apply in reference to anything you see fit.
From The Fellowship of the Heart:
Eric walked close to Edward and examined the carvings that Edward had been feeling. “Edward, I think that what the elders had to say to me through the vision that I saw answers to this. The group that left the mass of their tribe simply followed their hearts. I think that is the answer here — not running away but following our hearts, listening and receiving the message just when we need it most. We all, deep down, know the right thing to do. It’s like us back home. We battled — and it seems there are times to battle in such ways — but the time came to simply walk away. The time may come to return or find other means to express our purpose with our gifts and talents. We will know, if we listen to our hearts.”
Alaun joined them at the carvings, as they all had gravitated that way. “You have learned well, Eric, because there are times to battle, but more with ourselves than others. This I know: I have never been instructed by my heart to hurt a fellow human being. The greatest battle is always within to be clear about purpose, desire, and vision. Getting clear about those is not a one-time issue. You will learn that. Just know for now that those who oppose us in our purpose are not enemies to be despised and fought, but enemies who we should recognize and respect in some ways. It is not always easy, but we always have the right guidance. And sometimes, the efforts of enemies are confounded when we follow our heart. Sometimes, they become friends, don’t they, Stan?”
I want to add this because of what has happened in Orlando. Sometimes love and our hearts demand justice, but not blind, wholesale, egotistical hatred. If that is the camp anyone falls in, then that is not a heart response. However, sometimes perpetrators meet just ends, appropriately. No matter who dies, life energy has never been spent in vain. Lessons and energies continue; it is up to us to make meaning of those from our own hearts.
May comfort, peace, and blessing attend all of us at this time, and may we remember that our greatest battle is within to gain clarity in terms of purpose, desire, and vision.
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
