The Lights are Too Bright Now, Balance, September 11th and Love

The lights around me now are bothersome where as before they were not. To make matters worse, today they installed a new flourescent light above my desk. I walk outside and the sunlight seems just as bad. I feel as though I am swimming in light. I think of that song that goes, "Blinded by the light...."

11 continues to show-up continuously. I ask myself, "Will this stop, or will it keep happening?" I also wonder, "Do I need to do anything else?" It's not that I want it to stop, I just thought that my goal had already been reached and that the signs would stop. Maybe this is an ongoing process.

The past few days I keep seeing things related to September 11th. They are sad reminders, but I wonder why they keep showing up.

Today the largest word in my ZoomCloud is "balance". I think Alex's joke about ZoomClouds being psychic readings might be right, because today I feel a strong sense of balance in my life, even though this morning I was a little shaky.

On a side note, I've taken care of something personal that I've thought on-and-off about taking care of for more than a year now. Now I can move on. As the song on the radio said yesterday on my way home, "Obladi Oblada Life Goes On...."

I think that yesterday was the first time in my life that I had ever experienced bliss. Spiritual bliss is love. Some years ago I thought I knew what love was, but now I know I do. What is even more special, is that all of you are a part of it.

I still have questions... lots and lots of questions. While I have access to my friend, I'll ask him.

By the way, some of you are spiritual teachers. You may not realize it, but we are each placed here to reach a goal of some sort, and when we cross paths with each other, we learn lessons that help us achieve that goal.

Lessons may be difficult to learn at first, but when you study them closely, they are truly beautiful. They bring us forward, and so we move on.

And, concerning Bliss and Love, I know you saw this post-- http://benedharmex.blogspot.com/2007/03/true-love.html --'cause you commented on it but, for other's, I append this quote:

"Know thou of a certainty that Love is the secret of God's holy Dispensation, the manifestation of the All-Merciful, the fountain of spiritual outpourings. Love is heaven's kindly light, the Holy Spirit's eternal breath that vivifieth the human soul. Love is the cause of God's revelation unto man, the vital bond inherent, in accordance with the divine creation, in the realities of things. Love is the one means that ensureth true felicity both in this world and the next. Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul. Love is the most great law that ruleth this mighty and heavenly cycle, the unique power that bindeth together the divers elements of this material world, the supreme magnetic force that directeth the movements of the spheres in the celestial realms. Love revealeth with unfailing and limitless power the mysteries latent in the universe. Love is the spirit of life unto the adorned body of mankind, the establisher of true civilization in this mortal world, and the shedder of imperishable glory upon every high-aiming race and nation."

Glad you liked that!

Thanks for posting the quote, it fits right in with what I said about Love in my post. I especially like this little part: "Love revealeth with unfailing and limitless power the mysteries latent in the universe."

Now I feel like playing that Beatles song, "Love, Love, Love...."

I spent so much time being frustrated that I couldn't understand more complex science, when it turns out the best things in life to learn are those that involve simple matters such as these. I guess that really, they're not so simple because even the most scientific people might not quite get it!
