I recently learned some stuff. Sometimes there are cold days even when you are in the “summer” of your life. People don’t always mean what they say and that has nothing to do with how close a man is to God or how spiritually evolved a woman is. I learned that some people still keep themselves chained even after their restraints have been removed. Unwittingly clinging to the egos roadmap to freedom like a beacon to adventure and happiness when in truth it is an inaccurate legend full of detours and wrong turns that limit and inhibit us from the only thing that is real. I learned sometimes people grab their own coattails to stop themselves from running towards love. Perhaps because living from our ego is presently preferable and tricks us into believing it is the right thing to do. We blindly bind ourselves in the very leash we fear another will slide around our neck. We restrain ourselves from the very thing we want more than anything, that heady and precious Holy Grail -unconditional love. Today I learned that even people who preach of love don’t always recognize it straight away when our hearts are not free.
Today I learned I have been guilty of all these things! Today I learned someone is me.
I learned even the best people forget what is important and that when we get caught up in the intoxicating allure of being and doing “new” things we sometimes forget the lessons that are as old as time. I learned that when God gives you a precious opportunity for the Holy Grail it’s probably wise not to turn it in for something illusory. I learned that Love doesn’t wait for us to be ready. If we are authentically in alignment with Spirit we are always ready to love. I learned when our hearts are truly aligned with God, there is no shame or guilt or fear, there is only forgiveness and love.
Today I realized these things I thought I already knew, had still not been fully realized before but now are. I had to look in the mirror at myself as the past student of these many lessons, for their truth to finally hit home. There I found in my reflection, my compassion for other souls who are journeying through their own lessons now. And I saw clearly the reason for my own suffering. I see where my lessons entwine with others to bring me the pain that has opened me to my creator’s wisdom. And I am grateful for my sufferings. Yes, those other souls who hold anger and resentment toward me for things real or imagined are my teachers. In the conflict of our judgments and misjudgments , jealousy, fear and hatred lay the swords of my karma.
Over my lifetime I have looked deeply at each one to ask “What sword is this?”. I leaned into its sharp edge as it slashed through my flesh to let its lesson bleed out from my skin and my soul. Those lessons taught me so well and gave me such gifts that I came to love my teachers. And miraculously as I did this time and time again I learned how to send love to the ones who held the swords of my Karma because my beautiful life would not exist without them.
From those dark and unyielding depths emerged a warrior whose authentic heart was taught how to love unconditionally. I look deeply at her now, and in a moment of clarity my hand reaches into my heart and I send my deep unconditional love to all the students, all my teachers. With my palm as open as my warrior ‘s heart I send out an intention that the light and love in my soul, would be the authentic beacon to light the way to the freedom their souls crave- the way it has set me free. I do this every morning now on a yoga mat in a dimly lit room, just me and God and the Angels and Arcturians and Ascended Masters. There are no words to describe the bliss and power of those moments. The oneness with my universe starts as a seed in my heart and radiates out to enfold all.
Each day brings a new lesson that takes me higher into that oneness. My awareness is heightened and opened to every subtle nuance.
Today Sparky came over and wanted to do yoga too.
Today I learned how my dog feels when I pet him one minute and shoo him away the next. Maybe I could be kinder about that sometimes. I learned what that sad rejected furry look on his face feels like in the ache of my own heart as if someone had done that to me. I thought of people that I pushed away when I should have embraced them. I learned that humiliating sting was there to teach me and I was grateful for it.
Today I learned what freedom is. It lives in that soft tender part of my heart, where I have ached and bled. I found it when I reached past the aches to the secret chamber where I connect with all things. From there I gave love to someone else fully secure that I already had so much for myself that I could give some away without any conditions.
Today I learned that the greatest freedom in life isn’t found in being free of ties and obligations. The greatest freedom in life is found in reaching into your own heart, past your fear, past the aches to willingly give love to another. Today I learned the path to freedom lies inside of me. Not in the doing and being without any claims on you. Today I learned being truly free means wanting someone to claim you and knowing it will strengthen your free spirit and expand the light of your soul. Today I learned if you want someone to claim you and offer unconditional love, you should probably tell them.
Today I remembered the most important lesson of my life.
Today I learned real freedom isn’t found it is remembered.
Today I let go of the pain that has kept me restrained. Today I burned through the debris of a past that has held me prisoner far too long! Today I learned what being free really means and what really matters. Today I learned this has been what my life’s journey is all about, getting free…not free to live, anyone who is determined and has a bit of guts can do that. No my life journey is about being free to LOVE unconditionally and that requires remembering the wisdom, compassion and the courage we are all born with. Give love selflessly to everyone no matter if their sword has slashed you. Love them anyway! It is in this task the peaceful warrior is born.
Today I learned the picture of me wielding a sword astride a running horse on the cover of my Akashic Book is the symbol of the freedom that lies in my warrior’s heart. Not because I fight to the death with a raised sword, but because I have learned to lower my sword to feel the sting of a blade and be free to love anyway. Today I learned that I have come full circle.
Today I learned unconditional love is the kiss of the wind on your face as your horse carries you into a battle you do not fear. Because that kiss, that wind is Gods lips anointing you. When you feel the connection to Gods touch in everything you want to share it with everyone. Who they are and what they have done matters not. This love can only be given from a heart that is free. A warrior’s heart that has learned to lean on the swords of Karma and still rides like the wind laughing and full of joy and love for all life!

This Blog is the story of the miracles, challenges and lessons of my life journey. Years ago when I hit a personal "rock bottom" my despair led me to seek answers and my quest for truth began. Amazing events propelled me on a spiritual journey of transformation.. Miraculously, through these experiences my life has become my teacher and my friend.... I hope my words connect us and allow us to walk together for a time as teacher and friend to each other. The most valuable thing we have during this human experience is our connection to love. The love in our soul for a higher power and others is the only thing that is real. I honor these connections through my writing. Theses words are my gift inspired through the heart of Spirit for you. I hope by sharing my journey it will enlighten, inspire and ease yours as it does mine >> ... Peace... Georgia Rose
