As new people join us - Marcos from Patreon, Xanthe, welcome! - I wanted to share a story with you all. As we grow and expand, I want to remind everyone whether they are a reader, excited participant, or gawker - yes, we have a few and that's okay - anyone who graces the space with your presence, I want to remind you that ----
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSCIOUSNESS YOU BRING INTO THIS SPACE.
How you manage or do not manage your energy affects those around you.
This is a personal journey, but sometimes it helps to look up and witness the people around you -
You might just have your mastery reflected back to you.
That being said I am loving the Ryver community set up by Este - who has been given full sovereign reign to 'manage' that space. I love that we can create story boards, have a conference call (we must try it), post pictures and more. Plus, each master of Self can configure their own settings determining what level of communication they want to receive. To try it out, email Este at email@example.com. But first, please read this story and consider making a commitment to honor the Banyan, if you feel passionate about the space.
I want to create a space that is everything we hoped the other consciousness-related groups would be - no advertising, no feeding, no one trying to make money or prolong dependency on workshops, sessions, etc. If you are new here, be sure to read our manifesto too. I also wrote recently about Divine Will Boundaries - you can click on the category called Boundaries to your right. Bare with me as I have to say the same thing in multiple ways.
Now time to check out the latest Banyan Tree Story. In honor to you and your self-awareness!
The Banyan Tree of Being
What a lovely place to gather as masters -
Under the golden branches of the majestic Banyan Tree.
The community of self-realization had loved the concept - as I had.
A place to gather, a place to visit, to BE in mastery.
I cherished the space that was shown to me by El Morya.
I was honored we hosted Babaji on his occasional visits.
I loved what it represented in all that we share here - in this space.
Enlightenment is not all rainbows and butterflies - we all know that.
Yet, the Banyan Tree is a place to put that aside.
Not to fix anything, not to release anything.
Yet, the human self can get confused.
Some loved the way they felt under the Banyan Tree -
so they wanted to fill it up with light - to give back.
Others felt they needed to be filled up with the golden light of the Banyan Tree -
so they visited it frequently to fill themselves up, when they felt they did not have enough.
Forgetting - the Banyan Tree is neither a place to give or receive - but only to BE.
The Banyan Tree could handle the weight of these human needs from time to time.
But there it was - more needing - needing more -
The Banyan Tree knew needing is the same - whether it is to give or receive -
for giving and receiving are based on energy exchange.
Being - on the other hand - is based on no energy.
The absence of energy dependence, or energy addictions.
Being under the Banyan Tree means being in your pure consciousness -
without the need from any external energy source.
On Saturday, I went on a long walk through the snow-packed woods -
my feet crunching the bright white snow beneath with each step.
I went to visit the Banyan Tree and noticed something -
the branches were drooping, sagging under the wight of the energy exchanges going on -
of giving and receiving energy - of needing energy.
I noticed the ascended masters there had left.
At first I blamed myself -
I had not been clear.
Second, I blamed myself -
this was my creation.
No, I swept that aside.
This was our creation.
It was not a problem after all.
It was a remembering of who we are - the I AM. The I Exist.
My human self wanted to fix it.
No, my master self said.
The only thing to do is to be.
So I found myself floating alone under the Banyan Tree -
in pure consciousness - without having to fix or repair anything about me or others or the tree.
Only in awareness - conscious observation.
In breathing deeply in my cross-legged stance, levitating under its branches -
I watched and observed, with awareness of all that is, with awareness of the I AM.
In my state of pure consciousness, the branches began to lift again.
They un-flolded and reached toward the skies.
I noticed a few of you levitating there with me -
In the state of being - without giving or receiving.
I smiled in your direction.
Sparkles of gold began to fall like snow flakes from the tree's tops -
Not to give anything for me or us to receive,
but to demonstrate the magic -
the magic of being - the magic of being in a pure state of consciousness.
The invitation always stand to join us - to join you -
to join your master Self under the majestic branches of the golden Banyan Tree -
not to fill yourself up -
not to heal your illusory human wounds -
not to give in gratitude -
only to BE - for that is your greatest gift you can give to the worlds you inhabit.
You are responsible for the consciousness you bring into the worlds you inhabit -
your worlds - not for anyone else - but for yourSelf.
I took a deep breath, in honor of remembrance.
I took a deep breath, in honor of this space.
I took a deep breath, in honor of you.
Most of all, I took a deep breath, in honor of ME.
