A Fine Way To Live: Buddha with Zoe

A fine way to live

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: A Fine Way to Live

Buddha: We’ve spoken before about right use of mind.

Your mind directs your being. Towards what? Towards whatever it is concerned or focused upon. There may be no method in this. In life, behaving this way would be considered folly. A life of perpetual meandering. Now some people do behave this way. This is considered to be an undesirable or even mentally ill state of being. Unless you wish life to give you more meandering like experiences, focus yourself. Start with your mind: what do you wish to achieve? How will you achieve? Then be. And as you be, act upon your plan. This is a fine way to live in this, your world.

Live! Buddha with Zoe

Live, Buddha with Zoe, image dynamic flower
Live whilst you are alive

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Live!

Buddha: ‘Living’ is the experience you undertake as you have this so called ‘life’. But are you living? Or existing? Do not forget that ‘living’ in it’s true sense is an opening of possibility; the numerous and endless ways you can meet this moment now as you are alive in body.

Live today. Existence will still be here tomorrow. But it may change. Feel alive and embrace the experience of possibilities. Do not shed them for a meaningless existence.

I exist: I live- just in a different way from you. I still engage in the lives I live and experience them in their fullest. While you may not comprehend my meaning on myself, comprehend it for yourself. Feel like you’re living while you are alive.

Prioritisation: Buddha with Zoe

Prioritisation, Buddha with Zoe, Bluefish

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Prioritisation

Buddha: As I look on I notice that many of you have many things to do, places to go, errands to run. But where are your priorities- in being busy? I ask you to look at this today. Life will always present opportunities for events, for getting things done, but is this really how you wish your experience of living to be? Ask yourself this today. For many of you, slowing down will unlock a life worthy of living.

This is all.

Service By BEing not Doing: Buddha with Zoe

Be to serve, not do, Northern stones
BE to serve, not do

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Service By BEing not Doing

Buddha: It has been a while since you engaged with me Zoe. Your life has been taken up by self and selfless work and action. As you, and others like you, work to bring yourself into harmony with All that is, it becomes easier for others. Those of you doing this now are like pioneers; trailblazers who walk a path that allows others to walk after you. How does this work? By BEing, you energetically entrain others that coexist/coincide with you physically as well as through the remit of your work. You, and others, need not DO anything other than allow that which is existing in your space and time to BE and eventually flow from you.

There will be others who will read this and recognize this in themselves. This is good. I say to you, you do not need to DO anything with this unless urged from within. You need to worship the sacred, the eternal, the vivacity of life. It is by living and doing that, that you do the same service as others who lift humanity through their physical daily actions and work. So let us be clear on this. There is just you and your honoring of that BEing, that space within. Give it life, honor and respect and you do your spiritual work as you occupy your time on earth whatever your physical deed and action.

This is all.

Times of Suffering: Jesus with Zoe

Times of suffering

Conversations with Zoe and Jesus: Times of Suffering

Jesus: There will be times when you feel you cannot cope; you cannot find the strength to carry on. Perhaps a loved one will pass, a fortune lost or a child has suffered and died. Even in these times turn to us. It is not your destiny to suffer although during your life much suffering will occur. Turn to us and we will lift you; lift you from the pain and misery that can set in after a tragedy. Pain will and must be felt but life goes on and so too must you. Choosing to suffer does not help anyone and certainly does not serve the world, nor me.

We are with you, always.

Heed The Murmurings: Jesus with Zoe

Heed the Murmourings

Conversation with Jesus and Zoe: Heed The Murmurings

Jesus: So you think you can do this on your own, this life? This existence? 

You can’t.  You are all interconnected and interwoven, dependant of the well being of all, all than the one.  All of you at the day of reckoning will be held accountable to Us for your ignorance, misdemeanours and misnomers towards others.

Each of you must learn to turn the other cheek, help the stranger, love your neighbour before the ascent of your race is possible.  This is why highly evolved beings return to earth – to ease the suffering.  Thinking of the All not just the One.  The suffering tide is coming.  It will come in TV shows and books, churches, synagogues, mosques, earthquakes and hurricanes and it will ask each of you to look within and find the humanity, the strength, the willingness to help those who are weaker, more vulnerable and less able than yourselves.

For those of you who worship at the bank and in “goods” this will be shaken or taken away and a New world order, a New earth will emerge and fill the cracks, the voids in the old ones.

The prophets are in place.  The time is now.  Those that feel the move will move with it.

For those that ignore and refuse the inner murmurings (it’s in you All) there will be consequences.

Hail the new order has come and with it a new beginning, a new possibility a New Way of Being for you All.

Heed the murmurings, awake to the realities of your life and your consequential affect on the lives of others and you will hardly notice the change take place.

Resist and on your head be it.

Why Do I Not Intervene?: Jesus with Zoe

Why I don't intervene, http://conversationswithjesusandbuddha.com/i-must-be-found-jesus-and-zoe/ ‎
Why do I not intervene?

Conversation with Jesus and Zoe: Why I Do Not Intervene

Jesus: I am often asked why do I not come and stop or intervene the destructive acts of man.

I am a force – a force that is there, that can be tapped into.  I cannot and will not use my power to impose myself on any person, event, deed, nation.  I am here but I must be found.

Turn to me and I will help lift you – restoring hope, buoyancy and help through the trying times.  Let my light lift and guide you through your path and journey during life.  I am here and always near.  I am to be found not to be forced.

With love.

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.
