Meditations by Dorothy Maclean, Commentary by Freya Secrest
“As you bring your problems to Me, they are solved according to your attitude. If you bring them to Me as a duty, yet keep a tight rein on them, holding them in mind and weighed down by them, you keep them with you. They cannot be resolved unless you let go of them and let in an attitude conducive to the joyful solution of them. Lightness and love are absolutely essential….” from Wisdoms by Dorothy Maclean
When looking for deva messages that speak to my practice of Incarnational Spirituality to share with you this month, I found several that highlight the ways I am learning to reframe my attitude and choose, again and again throughout the day, to live into the sacredness of my life.
Central to my inner experience of the sacred after times of silent attunement or moments of wonder and awe is a sense of connectedness. I look to give that sense the room to ‘bloom’ in my daily life by initiating the attitude of joy and appreciation that Dorothy’s messages point out. I find this invites and unfolds the Sacred in everyday ways that on my own I could never imagine into being.
My most recent experience of this practice has come up due to a recent move back to the midwest. There are many details to juggle to transfer the many structures of support, like bank accounts and driver’s licenses, and new ones to set in place, like snow removal and car repair connections. Such tasks can use up much time and generate frustration in me. When I make my first step in these tasks with my attention on cultivating a joyful attitude, I have noticed my sense of overwhelm is lessened and a response of connectedness meets me as I move through my tasks. When I can hold this attitude, 'solutions' come up alongside any ‘problems’ and I have greater ease at making any needed adjustments. Attention to attitude helps me make the space for new possibilities to emerge.—Freya Secrest
Rows of us, like the spikes of the plant, seem to be calling you to come up, to leave the denseness of human life and join our gaiety and movement. Don’t you see that all of life can be enjoyed in this spirit; don’t you see that your gloomy view of anything is but an unnecessary weight having no reality except in your mind? We know well that when you are born on Earth you are plunged into levels of world thought which are dinned into you until you accept them as natural and even argue that anything else is unrealistic, but now at this time we add our voices to urge you to look up, rise and only accept into your consciousness that which is good. Accept your problems as something delightful, a game, happy events from which new awareness comes, for such they are in reality. Let them lift you up instead of weighing you down, for indeed that is why you have them.
There is an answer, a way out, to all that befalls you, and it is up to you to find it. You won’t find it if you look for it on the same level which presents it; it would not be a problem then, it is only a problem because your awareness is confined and caged. But the problem is an opportunity to extend yourself, to let in more light, to rise and enjoy more of life Someone else may point the way for you but the problem is one of your consciousness and one which only your consciousness can solve. You cannot blame anyone else – that is, and be accurate – and its solution depends on your movement.
This is the sort of things we see so clearly in humankind and which you often see so clearly in another, but remember it applies to yourself. When you find yourself in a difficult situation, rise and laugh at yourself, keep the touch of lightness and that in itself may show you the way. Be grateful for the opportunity for growth and movement. Don’t bemoan your fate and pass on negativity, find and spread the light. Life is a pattern of growth and expansion of Light and Love; act on it as such and transform your world. You humans and we angels are of one substance and we take every opportunity to emphasize this, to bring a spark of light to your life, as we do to the life of a plant, and to join our worlds with yours in joy. We do love all life so much, and so will you when you rise and see that all is very well. In your attitude is the way; rise and find the way." --Lavender Deva from Seeds of Inspiration by Dorothy Maclean
