Tremendous efforts are needed to dissuade the common theme of attack and overcome that is held by so many people in this world. Peace can never come from overcoming others. Understanding relationships and finding radical new ways to achieve peace are necessary for the pursuant of freedom. Each and every one is part of the new wave of love and compassion that is needed today. It is time to stretch the current framework and create a new world.
It is important to recognize the dynamic of mutual engagement. Whether between individuals, groups or whole nations, it takes both sides to hold the relationship together. As an example, visualize a shoe lace that is intertwined as it laces the shoe with adjoining pressure, pulling the parts of the shoe together. This automatically tightens the grip of both sides of the shoe. This joint pressure holds the shoe together. But when the pressure becomes unbearable, the lace breaks—“the tie that binds them”. This breaking or bursting is usually seen as the fault of the other, but is actually the result of both sides pulling against each other—intertwined needs and emotions that keep them engaged. It is not love that binds them–it is fear.
What we are witnessing today is the bursting of pressure of two sides of the polarity so that we can transform the planet to a whole new way of being–a planetary shift like the world has never seen. We are moving out of polarity and into compassion, trust and love for one another. You are a part of the magnificent planetary evolution and that is why you are here.
Understand this. Trying to overcome another person, group or nation, by intensifying the pressure, always results in disruptions and even wars. Warring nations have been held in the same pull of intertwined relationships for centuries. Currently, it has escalated to levels never experienced before and is occurring on all fronts.
Poisoned attitudes and ideas for achieving supremacy are delivered to each other through the media of all kinds, and accelerated with the internet. Poisonous ideas, like venom, need an antidote to dilute their power. This passage of time requires people taking a stand for peace, with conviction; not just politely standing by waiting to see what will happen.
When you pronounce Truth it will be recognized. Freedom is just that—freedom from fear and freedom of speech. Persevere in spreading a message of peace, love and harmony. Do not give others authority over you or be beguiled by false platitudes and toxic ideas. Do not let fear make you feel small and insignificant.
Why are people afraid to take a stand? It stems from fear of punitive action from those in authority. Childhood experiences of being scolded by a teacher or older authority, have conditioned people to be afraid to speak the truth or take a stand against the prevailing culture. People who are in fear seek leaders who represent authoritarian parents or other adults in their childhood experience. It is time to reclaim your own authority, your inner spiritual greatness. It is time to be discerning from your own inner guidance. Bow down to no one, and ask no one to bow down to you.
In unraveling conflicts at all levels, ask the question, “When does a defense become the offense? When are we the perpetrators and when are we the perpetrated upon?” Every time we attack another, be it in families, work or the world, we tighten the interlaced pressure that will finally burst. We push others into a corner and they then counter-attack. We are locked in the stranglehold of intertwined relationships based in fear. Today’s world (and workplace) is a web of egos battling and competing for power and validation. It takes more courage to put your “gun” down–both figuratively and literally, then to attack and blame others.
Be a shining example to the world of acceptance, compassion and integrity. Open hearts with a divine message, bless those before you, and forgive your enemies. Prepare a way for a new generation and be passionate in your commitment to deliver Truth. Truth will cut through the confusion like the sun breaking through the clouds. Bask in the sunshine of our approval and share that same light of love and forgiveness with others. Blessed are you who do God’s work.
RELIANCE ON UNIVERSAL LOVE August 16, 2010Posted by Danna Beal in Personal Freedom, Relationships, Universal Love.
If you want to truly make a difference in your workplace or anywhere else, you can only do it when you are strongly rooted in authentic power stemming from the power of universal love. Again, I am not talking about the sentiment of love. I am talking about the power and source of all that is, the source of all creation. It is love. Only our judgment of ourselves and others obscures the love from shining on and through us. Love awaits us—it is in a state of suspension for each one of us who has not yet fully realized and accepted its grace and splendor. But it is our choice to do this or not to do it.
Choice is the function and the main component of free will. Unconscious choices directed by the ego rather than by the wisdom of the inner self are the source of our chaotic lives. Choice without spiritual intent can lead to pain, despair, and destruction. However, choosing differently is always an option within the time you are here. But as fair warning, the longer we wait, the more severe the consequences tend to be. We unsuspectingly bring ourselves to points in our journey where we feel pain that is often the precursor to awakening.
In the world of the ego, reliance is found with other people and things. Reliance is the act of counting on something or someone outside the self for some perceived needed support, validation, or assistance. But relying on things outside yourself will never provide security. The only reliance that will ever give you any kind of certainty is that of your inner guidance and connection with the source. Reliance on love is the straightest and purest path you can walk. Choose no other.
Choosing love over the ego requires having the experience, even if only briefly, of relying on love. Communion with spirit will allow love to expand in your heart and will lead to genuine freedom, peace, and joy. Therein lies your safety and security, because this source is constant and unchanging. It can never be reduced or taken away, except by your own choice. Who would rely on anything less than the promise of universal love? Know these two things: 1) Love asks nothing and receives everything, and 2) Pain and suffering are the result of misguided intentions that block love.

If love is the sunshine, judgment is the cloud that obscures it.

Until each leader can face his/her own inner doubts and fear of reprisal, all attempts at leadership will fail in the face of conflict. Emotional instability and immaturity show up in the workplace, families and relationships. Unresolved issues, pains and insecurities, even though masked with attempts at artificial roles of superiority, eventually collapse when the pressure mounts.
The masks will fail to protect and the fears will overtake all circumstances. In an attempt to protect the self, the ego will resort to the strategies they believe carried them through stories in the past. These false roles will only result in further dramas, leading to larger catastrophes affecting the security and safety of many people. The emotional drama feeds on the hidden fears and frailties of the individuals.
Kindness is in short supply—based on fear. Illumination only comes from within—facing your fears and insecurities. Life presents opportunities and choices that lead to authentic power. Believe not in outside appearances but look within. The child, the neuroses, and the psyche are all competing for attention. Where you focus your attention builds strength of that which competes within you. Trust in your own inner guidance—even when you feel little support from the masses.
Vow to be witness to Truth. Be aware of wolves in sheep’s clothing and children dressed as powerful adults. Give up false pretensions and allow the Truth to emerge in spite of the power plays. Evolving levels of justice will be done. Trust in that. Rely on nothing else.

Peace: Giving Up Rivalry November 11, 2009Posted by Danna Beal in Personal Freedom, Relationships.

Rivalry in the workplace, families and the world feeds on fear and insecurity and is accelerated by the desire to be recognized or appreciated. Few can withstand the discomfort and pain of being criticized, attacked and blamed. The feeling is literally that of being stabbed and deeply wounded.
Fear, when it comes up, wastes the energy of every man, woman and child. It becomes you. If allowed, it can overtake your perception of the world. Fear flows through us like a mighty river. When blocked, it begins building up and getting stuck within the body, hardening like frozen ice or concrete, and, finally, stopping all the healthy, normal emotions and actions from flowing.
The pain is then absorbed into negative emotions creating physical illness, addiction or deep morose. Attempts are made to expel the pain by blaming, attacking or lashing out at another, which only leads to greater rivalry, competition and jealousy.
Fear, blaming, attacking and holding a ‘gun” at someone else gives the one doing it a false sense of superiority, a feeling that they are above the source of the threat of destruction. The pain they cause in others is not felt when they are in the attack mode. But this sense of triumph is short-lived because another enemy will show up.
This rivalry we are seeing in dramatic proportions today, actually stems from childhood pain that gets hooked in the relationships with others. The pain needs to be released by facing and experiencing it—the very thing that most people avoid. This resistance of understanding the self at a deep level occurs because people are afraid of opening up a dirty secret—that they are not worthy. However, what they do not understand is that it takes so much energy maintaining this wall of protection and image of strength; it is a false image. Keeping up the defense is quite literally exhausting.
Emotional assaults are occurring every day at every level in the workplace and the world. The prognosis for this ongoing dysfunction is not good. It is an unending process leading to the deep lack of self esteem. Self worth will never be found in perpetuating drama.
What can you do to help heal relationships? The only remedy is to stop reacting, attacking, defending, blaming and fearing to look at your own wound. Who is the source of pain? Why do you allow the attack and, most of all, why do you believe them?
Staying with the pain, not running away, and allowing it to arise so that it can be released, is the only way you will discover liberation. As you allow the pain to be felt, you will gradually recall and have memories in your psyche of other painful experiences. This is your opportunity to witness to yourself how you received these ideas and descriptions of yourself and how these fears have become you!
Discovering your true self, your beautiful self, is difficult to do when you have incorrect beliefs about yourself that block your experience of joy. Clearing out the fictitious thoughts requires the willingness to stay with your emotional pain, long enough to release it. This courageous act will strengthen your inner core of authentic power, for you will be facing your greatest fear. It only takes going to that place of pain, briefly. You do not have to replay this scene of emotional suffering in your physical world again. Allow the pain that is hurting you now to be the door to your release. And that can only be done by you, on your own journey, to the source of lies about yourself.
The truth is that we are glorious beyond our own belief– all these little beliefs that we have created are nothing but this— shadowy veils. These veils of protection keep us from being fully alive and joyous by filtering the light and shrouding us from seeing our true selves.
