You are not alone

Conversations with Zoe and Jesus: You Are Not Alone

Jesus: We have said much of trust and faith- what is this? This is the absolute knowingness that you are not alone. That nothing is alone. This is true for every part of your Universe. Each person and being is linked and impacts another by mere thought as well as touch. You are magnificent and more powerful than you can ever know. Learn to trust this. Even as the flower fades and eventually falls, it is caught by the ground. It is loved. As it decomposes it brings nutrients and life to the soil and the soil is loved. This cycle continues whether you think of it or not. You are part of that cycle. Even when you fall you are caught. Whether you are mindful of Us or not, you are caught. We are yours, now and forever more.

Amen.

Race

Conversations with Jesus and Zoe: Race

Jesus: There is much talk about “Race” in your culture today.  So much associated with this.  Your past dictating your social future, etc.  In spirit we are all one with no concern over pigment of skin, caste and creed, kith and kin.  Unite as one and you shall find peace within.  Your skin is temporary.  It sheds, renews and eventually will lose its form and you will find yourself with us, without any thought of it.  Rejoice for this truth can be yours now.  Celebrate the differences in form that you have for so few years.  Work today to let go of mind or social based judgements.  We are all one.  Learn to look for this in those that are “different” and you will move closer to us.

Amen.

Build A Better World: Jesus with Zoe

Build a better world

Conversations with Jesus and Zoe: Build A Better World 

Jesus: You walk through the lives of many each and every one of you.  Ask yourself what do you leave behind?  Promise, faith, hope, smiles?  Anger, resentment, fear, alienation, isolation?  Make sure you are aware of the impact.  Think of the child responding to the mood of the adult.  What do you wish your legacy to be?  With each step, each glance, each phone call, each hug you interact with another.  Even in thoughts.  Nothing is invisible.  If you could see your “effect” or residue as tangibly as a badge of emotion on another- and you knew that they could also see the badge that your impact had- would you change?

Let’s build a better world.  It only takes you.  Together we will succeed.

Love.

Work: Jesus with Zoe

Working

Conversations with Jesus and Zoe: Work

Jesus: It is often asked of me why do I need to do this work?  Why can’t it be easy?  Better?  Different!

Work provides a focus for time.  It provides challenges, thrills, highs and lows.  It means productivity and ultimately civilisation as you understand it.

If everyone let go of work your worlds would become chaos.  Without focus, discipline and effort humans do not aspire to greatness.

So work is a way of striving for something better, brighter and bigger than you have.

This does not mean that I condone workaholism or results based efforts.  No.  I merely bring understanding on the importance of focus, effort, discipline.  So why not work?

More importantly learn to love your work.  Try this for one week – consciously engaging and positively expecting good things to happen.  Focus, effort and discipline can lift you to higher and greater things so do not dampen these talents with negative thinking towards your boss, job or colleagues.

Once you are striving for greater states it will become easier to meet me.  And this ultimately is my work for you.

With love.

Resist Nothing: Buddha with Zoe

Resist Nothing, http://conversationswithjesusandbuddha.com/resist-nothing/ ‎
Resist nothing

Conversation with Buddha and Zoe: Resist Nothing. 

Buddha: Let me explain what this means.

For mind and mastery to be complete there needs to be a full understanding of the nature of mind; the workings of mind and the ability from that therefore to direct mind.  “Resist nothing” does not refer to earthly pleasures or deliberately indulging in squalid, dirty, self gratification states.  However, the fear that that is where the mind could take one, means that one resists certain thoughts, urges and in the resistance, one becomes unable to see what is real.  In other words the fear of what might be real creates resistance so that reality is never quite achieved albeit heavily sought by the individual.

Your mind takes you in a myriad of directions always towards the same point though: truth, honor, trust, faith, strength.  Yet this is not the experience of mind that people have.  Indeed for most mind is perpetual thinking, perpetual thoughts that take you in a myriad of directions.  When one approaches a type of thought that one identifies as ‘bad’, such as what we have already spoken about- thoughts of squalor, deprivation, etc,- one immediately sensors those thoughts. Yet where do these thoughts come from?  Why would you sensor one and not all thought? For if we were to be fully present we would be aware of the nature of our thoughts.

I will try to keep this clear on this occasion.  Mind is strength, faith, focus, union with spirit.  It is a gateway to the essence, to the soul, to God, and the God experience.  The road to this is paved and littered with thought.  These thoughts are like leaves fallen from the trees in autumn and how we choose to respond to our journey, whilst in body, is often to become distracted by the thoughts that are on the path: to the point that we become concerned only with the nature of the leaves and the nature of do we like the leaves.  And we have forgotten that the purpose of the path is to bring us to union, union with ourselves in the arms of God.  Therefore resist no leaf.  As you are dedicated to following your path- the path to you, the path to union with God – falsehood comes only from focusing and identifying and creating relationships with thought forms.  Therefore resist nothing.  Accept all and continue on your journey where we will await you.

All Is Impermanent: Buddha with Zoe

All Is Impermanent, http://conversationswithjesusandbuddha.com/all-is-impermanent/ ‎
All is Impermanent

Conversation with Buddha and Zoe: All Is Impermanent

Buddha: Begin now to look at the world the way we see it.  This world is of temporary form- always shifting, always moving out, shifting each of your every lives.  This world that you live in is bigger, bolder and greater than the individual life that you currently inhabit.

With this knowledge learn to respect the earth.  Learn to keep the earth’s greatness in your mind and with every choice that you make be aware of consequence.  I say this to each and every one of you.Yet do not become fixed on the permanence of damage or sustainability or even on life itself.

Think of yourself as in transit. You are always moving from one form into another.  Birth, life stages, days, places that you visit- always moving in and out of form.  Not just within the lifetime of the soul but within the lifetime even of the day.  One moment is always different from the next, yet you remain.  So treat your host with respect and dignity, your host the earth. You are traveling through this lifetime and leave it well.

Begin to recognize that there are those that have gone before you who knew and understood this and worked to leave no footprint of themselves upon the earth. Take a step towards this. This will do two things: Firstly this will give the respect to the earth that it deserves. Secondly this will begin to train you in the nature of your reality right now as you sit and read these words. This moment, whilst real now, will be gone in a moment from now. Take from it what you need. Recognize the impermanence of all and become still and settled within that. Great is the suffering of the many who try and fix points through time, through desire.

Whilst great things can be achieved within a lifetime, within a year, within a month, a week, a day, all is just single moments threaded together. All is impermanent.

I taught to think of moments, of actions, of words spoken to others, of thoughts, all of these as beads on string. Each bead represents that thought, that moment, that desire, that action. This will be the legacy that the soul will carry forth from you. You will with you a string of beads and on that string will be your decisions whether you have been conscious of them or not. This is what you will take to what id beyond form. I taught that this is all that is important- a string of beads- and that isn’t even real in form but metaphysical.

Today I will teach you to value the impact of your life, your choices. Delve into your thoughts, your desires to help you become aware of the impact of your life and your choices, conscious or not.

Life is different today. Different in the fact that impact is greater, desire is greater, restlessness and suffering is greater and this happens at a time when many of you have more of that which is in form. Therefore switch your focus from your daytime job to give you things, material forms, and instead focus on your inner world. This is your real job and it matters not what you do in the world of form. What matters is how. Bring conscious awareness into your life, into your moment and learn to keep the focus on your internal world. learn to become aware of when you become out of yourself and learn to hold the moments where you are inside. Inside your body, inside your life, inside what you are doing- this is where you meet the present. This is where you are doing you inner work.

And this is all for today.

An Exercise in Kindness: Buddha with Zoe

An exercise in kindness

Conversation with Buddha and Zoe: An Exercise in Kindness

 

Buddha: Today we speak about the milk of human kindness.  Consider acting as if you are the kindest person ever placed on earth.  Try for one day, one hour, one minute to be kind in thought, action and deed.  Practice this.  After you have done so ask yourself how do you feel? Better or worse?  Give yourself a target time that you feel you can aim for and achieve whether this is one minute, one hour, one day, one week.  Work towards becoming the kindest you can be.  Even in the moments where worry, fear, anger and resentment arise.  Test yourself to see how quickly you can return to conscious kindness.

This in your lesson for today.

Mind is Strength, Faith, Focus, Union with Spirit: Buddha with Zoe

Conversation with Buddha and Zoe: Mind is Strength, Faith, Focus, Union with Spirit

Buddha: Zoë, you have been hearing my words in your head, ‘resist nothing, resist nothing’ and so on. Let me explain what this means.

For mind and mastery to be complete there needs to be a full understanding of the nature of mind, the workings of mind and the ability from that therefore to direct mind. “Resist nothing” does not refer to earthly pleasures or deliberately indulging in squalid, dirty, self gratification states. However, the fear that that is where the mind could take one, means that one resists certain thoughts, urges and in the resistance, one becomes unable to see what is real. In other words, the fear of what might be real creates resistance so that reality is never quite achieved albeit heavily sought by the individual.

Your mind takes you in a myriad of directions always towards the same point though: truth, honour, trust, faith, strength. Yet this is not the experience of mind that people have. For most, ‘mind’ equates perpetual thinking; perpetual thoughts that take you in a myriad of directions. When one approaches a type of thought that one identifies as ‘bad’, such as what we have already spoken about, one immediately censors those thoughts.

Yet where do these thoughts come from? Why would you censor one and not all thought?

If we were fully present we would be aware of the nature of our thoughts and the thinking process.

I will try to keep this clear and simple on this occasion.

Mind is strength, faith, focus, union with spirit. It is a gateway to the essence, to the soul, to God, and the God experience. The road to this union is paved and littered with thought. These thoughts are like leaves fallen from the trees in autumn. How do we choose to respond to our journey whilst in body? It is often to become distracted by the thoughts that are on the path to the point that we become concerned only with the nature of the leaves and the nature of do we like the leaves. And we have forgotten that the purpose of the path is to bring us to union: union with ourselves in the arms of God. Therefore, resist no leaf. As you are dedicated to following your path, the path to you, the path to union with God, falsehood comes only from focusing and identifying and creating relationships with thought forms. Therefore, resist nothing. Accept all and continue on your journey where we will await you.
