The Essential, Non-Essential ~ Bren Hill

The Essential, Non-Essential

Most of Western society views the perfect life as having a nice house, beautiful spouse, nice family, and a career that will pay the bills and then some. This is the American Dream. If the American Dream is what we should all strive for as if it’s the essence of life, then why is the divorce rate so high? If the American Dream is the essence of life, then why are there stories of millionaires who gave up their mansion for a cave in the middle of nowhere? If the American Dream is the essence of life, then why does it seem like the majority of Western society is not satisfied with their career?

There comes a point in a man’s life when he discovers that the essential turns out to really be the non-essential. If we all believed in the same thing, acted the same way, and were gifted with the same talents, the world would not be sustainable. So what then is the true essence of life? The only thing that is essential to any living creature is life force. You have the gift of life, plain and simple. While it was a gift to you on the day you were born, it does not mean that gift is forever yours: If you live life wrapped up in a lie, your life force will begin to fade. A lie in this instance is not used in the conventional sense of the word. To live life wrapped up in a lie is when you do not listen to your heart’s desire. It is when you do not express what is innately yours to express. Innocent children express themselves without hesitation. If humanity maintained this way of being, our life force would not be depleted and we wouldn’t need to ask the question, “What is my purpose?”

This issue of A Lightworker’s Journey features some people who knew what their purpose or calling is at an early age. Some people go through their entire lives not knowing what their purpose is, and other people know what their purpose is, but have difficulty putting it to practical use, while others know what their purpose is, but society gets the best of them­—dreams become lost only to be regained at a later date and time.

“We all love and worship the same God” ~ Pope Francis

“We all love and worship the same God.”  ”WE ALL LOVE AND WORSHIP THE SAME GOD”. Pope Francis opens the heart and mind of the Catholic church giving honor to the true message of Jesus Christ.

Yes Yes Yes, people who are awake know this, however religious leaders and their egos would not acknowledge it, instead pushing hate and intolerance for those who are different.

I’m not Catholic but i often watch the Christmas Midnight Mass, this year i heard something i had not heard before.. perhaps it was always said and i just didn’t get it. The Pope said (i’m paraphrasing), let your heart be open so Jesus can come in and love you . I had always heard it as open your heart and love Jesus… for me it is much more nurturing to think of Jesus coming to me, i was warmed by how the Pope put it. Then today someone posted on Facebook the below message from the Pope Francis.

“All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

Back in December I had heard a few news bites of his statement but it wasn’t until today i read it in full at Diversity Chronicle.

The light is growing brighter on the planet and true messages like this fill our cells with brightness. Let the light radiate from you, let it illuminate those dark places of fear within and without. The new age is birthed and growing, watch for these twinkles both huge and small and spread them, tell others or just let the light of your heart show in your smile.

Darkening: A Four-Point Plan by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

The gates are open and it is the SEASON (approximately 2012 – 2025) to create the needed change for our planet. We see it all around us now… SO WHAT TO DO, how to manage against what seems a futile task against the established path of entropy. Check out this article by Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee posted on the site Working With Oneness. Below are 2 excerpts that sang to me. ~rainy~

“Through prayer our hearts and minds can become aligned with the real need of the Earth and its wisdom which is deeper and older than our surface solutions. Hopefully we can be open enough to be guided towards the real work that needs to be done, rather than continuing the distortions of our present culture; a culture which rarely sees sustainability referring to the whole of creation, but rather as sustaining our present materialistic, energy-intensive lifestyle. Through prayer we can respond from a place of real wholeness, and a deeper knowing of the patterns of interconnection that run through all of life. Then our hands can work together with the energy of life, an energy that can restore and heal, that is responsive to life’s needs rather than just our desires.”

“To counter the darkening caused by the global corporations we need to return to what is most essential, the simple acts of care and loving kindness towards the ecosystem and each other. This is where healing will be born, in the small communities that are already growing around the planet—a return to simple human values that are not based upon greed. To act in our communities with care and concern—caring for a sick friend, cooking a meal with real love and attention—living with right action, mindfulness and common sense, and not being caught in the monster of consumerism that devours so much of our energy and light. How can we live simply and mindfully, with reverence for all of life? How can we once again learn to listen to life, the Earth, to our hearts, so we act in harmony with the real forces that underlie creation? How can we return to the values that sustain our souls as well as our bodies? What do we really need, rather than what we want? And how can we contribute, how can we help others and the Earth? How can we live the generosity that the Earth continues to teach us?”

Wind Speaks ~ Small Voice


In a whispered breeze or bellowed power

to Nature’s rhythm

The wind speaks of its duty to man, beast and plants

Over the high seas and rivers calm.

He does his cleansing and caressing to all,

Forever carrying a message for future generations.

“My duties are many. Many that Man does not know…..

I am vital.

On my currents are carried the future for the Universe.

I ebb and flow with power, beauty and love…

No beginning, no end”.

“I am Wind”

Small Voice


Seems everyone is clearing and releasing these days including elders. Just last week Small Voice found this treasure tucked in box and put away more than 10 years ago, how wonderful she kept it and it can be shared here.
