The Little Soul and the Sun by Adele Maria on December 11, 2009

Once upon no time, there was a little Soul who said to God, “I know who I am.”
And God said, “That’s wonderful! Who are you?”
And the Little Soul shouted, “I’m the Light!”
God smiled a big smile. “That’s right!” God exclaimed. “You are the Light.”
The Little Soul was so happy, for it had figured out what all the souls in the Kingdom were there to figure out.
“Wow,” said the Little Soul, “this is really cool!”
But soon, knowing who it was was not enough. The Little Soul felt stirrings inside, and now wanted to be who it was. And so the Little Soul went back to God (which is not a bad idea for all souls who want to be Who They Really Are) and said,
“Hi, God! Now that I know Who I am, is it okay for me to be it?”
And God said, “You mean you want to be Who You Already Are?”
“Well,” replied the Little Soul,” it’s one thing to know Who I Am, and another thing altogether to actually be it. I want to feel what it’s like to be the Light!”
“But you already are the Light,” God repeated, smiling again.
“Yes, but I want to see what that feels like!” cried the Little Soul.
“Well,” said God with a chuckle, “I suppose I should have known. You always were the adventuresome one.”
Then God’s expression changed. “There’s only one thing…”
“What?” asked the Little Soul.
“Well, there is nothing else but the Light. You see, I created nothing but what you are; and so, there is no easy way for you to experience yourself as Who You Are, since there is nothing that you are not.”
“Huh?” said the Little Soul, who was now a little confused.
“Think of it this way,” said God. “You are like a candle in the Sun. Oh, you’re there all right. Along with a million, gazillion other candles who make up the Sun. And the sun would not be the Sun without you. Nay, it would be a sun without one of its candles…and that would not be the Sun at all; for it would not shine as brightly. Yet, how to know yourself as the Light when you are amidst the Light -that is the question.”
“Well,” the Little Soul perked up, “you’re God. Think of something!”
Once more God smiled. “I already have,” God said. “Since you cannot see yourself as the Light when you are in the Light, we’ll surround you with darkness.”
“What’s darkness?” the Little Soul asked.
God replied, “It is that which you are not.”
“Will I be afraid of the dark?” cried the Little Soul.
“Only if you choose to be,” God answered. “There is nothing, really, to be afraid of, unless you decide that there is. You see, we are making it all up. We are pretending.”
“Oh,” said the Little Soul, and felt better already.
Then God explained that, in order to experience anything at all, the exact opposite of it will appear. “It is a great gift,” God said, “because without it, you could not know what anything is like. You could not know Warm without Cold, Up without Down, Fast without Slow. You could not know Left without Right, Here without There, Now without Then.”
“And so,” God concluded, “when you are surrounded with darkness, do not shake your fist and raise your voice and curse the darkness. Rather be a Light unto the darkness, and don’t be mad about it. Then you will know Who You Really Are, and all others will know, too. Let your Light shine so that everyone will know how special you are!”
“You mean it’s okay to let others see how special I am?” asked the Little Soul.
“Of course!” God chuckled. “It’s very okay! But remember,’special’ does not mean ‘better.’ Everybody is special, each in their own way! Yet many others have forgotten that. They will see that it is okay for them to be special only when you see that it is okay for you to be special.”
“Wow,” said the Little Soul, dancing and skipping and laughing and jumping with joy. “I can be as special as I want to be!”
“Yes, and you can start right now,” said God, who was dancing and skipping and laughing right along with the Little Soul.
“What part of special do you want to be?”
“What part of special?” the Little Soul repeated. “I don’t understand.”
“Well,” God explained, “being the Light is being special, and being special has a lot of parts to it. It is special to be kind. It is special to be gentle. It is special to be creative. It is special to be patient. Can you think of any other ways it is special to be?”
The Little Soul sat quietly for a moment. “I can think of lots of ways to be special!” the Little Soul then exclaimed. “It is special to be helpful. It is special to be sharing. It is special to be friendly. It is special to be considerate of others!”
“Yes!” God agreed, “and you can be all of those things, or any part of special you wish to be, at any moment. That’s what it means to be the Light.”
“I know what I want to be, I know what I want to be!” the Little Soul announced with great excitement. “I want to be the part of special called ‘forgiving’. Isn’t it special to be forgiving?”
“Oh, yes,” God assured the Little Soul. “That is very special.”
“Okay,” said the Little Soul. “That’s what I want to be. I want to be forgiving. I want to experience myself as that.”
“Good,” said God, “but there’s one thing you should know.”
The Little Soul was becoming a bit impatient now. It always seemed as though there were some complication.
“What is it?” the Little Soul sighed.
“There is no one to forgive.”
“No one?” The Little Soul could hardly believe what had been said.
“No one!” God repeated. “Everything I have made is perfect. There is not a single soul in all creation less perfect than you. Look around you.”

It was then that the Little Soul realized a large crowd had gathered. Souls had come from far and wide ~ from all over the Kingdom ~ for the word had gone forth that the Little Soul was having this extraordinary conversation with God, and everyone wanted to hear what they were saying. Looking at the countless other souls gathered there, the Little Soul had to agree. None appeared less wonderful, less magnificent, or less perfect than the Little Soul itself. Such was the wonder of the souls gathered around, and so bright was their Light, that the Little Soul could scarcely gaze upon them.
“Who, then, to forgive?” asked God.
“Boy, this is going to be no fun at all!” grumbled the Little Soul. “I wanted to experience myself as One Who Forgives. I wanted to know what that part of special felt like.”
And the Little Soul learned what it must feel like to be sad. But just then a Friendly Soul stepped forward from the crowd.
“Not to worry, Little Soul,” the Friendly Soul said, “I will help you.”
“You will?” the Little Soul brightened. “But what can you do?”
“Why, I can give you someone to forgive!”
“You can?”
“Certainly!” chirped the Friendly Soul. “I can come into your next lifetime and do something for you to forgive.”
“But why? Why would you do that?” the Little Soul asked. “You, who are a Being of such utter perfection! You, who vibrate with such a speed that it creates a Light so bright that I can hardly gaze upon you! What could cause you to want to slow down your vibration to such a speed that your bright Light would become dark and dense? What could cause you ~ who are so light that you dance upon the stars and move through the Kingdom with the speed of your thought–to come into my life and make yourself so heavy that you could do this bad thing?”
“Simple,” the Friendly Soul said. “I would do it because I love you.”
The Little Soul seemed surprised at the answer.
“Don’t be so amazed,” said the Friendly Soul, “you have done the same thing for me. Don’t you remember? Oh, we have danced together, you and I, many times. Through the eons and across all the ages have we danced. Across all time and in many places have we played together. You just don’t remember.”
“We have both been All Of It. We have been the Up and the Down of it, the Left and the Right of it. We have been the Here and the There of it, the Now and the Then of it. We have been the male and the female, the good and the bad; we have both been the victim and the villain of it.”
“Thus have we come together, you and I, many times before; each bringing to the other the exact and perfect opportunity to Express and to Experience Who We Really Are. And so,” the Friendly Soul explained further, “I will come into your next lifetime and be the ‘bad one’ this time. I will do something really terrible, and then you can experience yourself as the One Who Forgives.
“But what will you do?” the Little Soul asked, just a little nervously, “that will be so terrible?”
“Oh,” replied the Friendly Soul with a twinkle, “we’ll think of something.”
Then the Friendly Soul seemed to turn serious, and said in a quiet voice, “You are right about one thing, you know.”
“What is that?” the Little Soul wanted to know.
“I will have to slow down my vibration and become very heavy to do this not-so-nice thing. I will have to pretend to be something very unlike myself. And so, I have but one favour to ask of you in return.”
“Oh, anything, anything!” cried the Little Soul, and began to dance and sing, “I get to be forgiving, I get to be forgiving!”
Then the Little Soul saw that the Friendly Soul was remaining very quiet.
“What is it?” the Little Soul asked. “What can I do for you? You are such an angel to be willing to do this for me!”
“Of course this Friendly Soul is an angel!” God interrupted. “Everyone is! Always remember: I have sent you nothing but angels.”
And so the Little Soul wanted more than ever to grant the Friendly Soul’s request. “What can I do for you?” the Little Soul asked again.
“In the moment that I strike you and smite you,” the Friendly Soul replied, “in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could possible imagine ~ in that very moment…”
“Yes?” the Little Soul interrupted, “yes…?”"Remember Who I Really Am.”
“Oh, I will!” cried the Little Soul, “I promise! I will always remember you as I see you right here, right now!”
“Good,” said the Friendly Soul, “because, you see, I will have been pretending so hard, I will have forgotten myself. And if you do not remember me as I really am, I may not be able to remember for a very long time. And if I forget Who I Am, you may even forget Who You Are, and we will both be lost. Then we will need another soul to come along and remind us both of Who We Are.”
“No, we won’t!” the Little Soul promised again. “I will remember you! And I will thank you for bringing me this gift ~ the chance to experience myself as Who I Am.
” And so, the agreement was made. And the Little Soul went forth into a new lifetime, excited to be the Light, which was very special, and excited to be that part of special called Forgiveness.
And the Little Soul waited anxiously to be able to experience itself as Forgiveness, and to thank whatever other soul made it possible. And at all the moments in that new lifetime, whenever a new soul appeared on the scene, whether that new soul brought joy or sadness–and especially if it brought sadness–the Little Soul thought of what God had said.
“Always remember,” God had smiled, “I have sent you nothing but angels.”

Do Successful Entertainers Sell Their Souls?

Here's how I see it and this comes from my intense work and study on "soul" (you may want to listen to this It is the ego that drives people towards fame and fortune, popularity and worship. In ancient times, humans had their gods to worship, in these times humans have created all sorts of idols, from politicians, entertainers, sports heroes, super heroes, etc. to replace this inner longing for something that the human being knows/feels is bigger than it is. 

Because human beings have yet to learn that they are all that they seek outside of themselves, they continue to transfer their power to an "idol" So the rocks and stone altars have become the huge stages of the Oscars and Grammy's and the colossal sports stadiums. The politicians are entertainers, with too little charisma to make it to Hollywood. Money is spent and transactions are made to coerce, conform and pacify the masses and their gods. 

In the field of entertainment, particularly, as it is true in all the other arenas as well, a bargain is struck between the individual and the bargainer. The bargainer knows that he cannot "buy" another's soul but he can bribe another's ego to "sell out" go against principles that keep an individual in service to others and gain riches in service to self. 

The predator/or bargainer knows it is all a game and is keenly rewarded for all the pawns it plays on this chess board. the Predator knows that it is not the soul but the "Ego" that is a construct of the mind that is a construct of the "soul" and by creating the illusion that this bargain has caused one to loose their "soul" it keeps the prey constantly attempting to retrieve something that it never lost. It is part of the grand illusion, that says humanity must be "saved" by the horrific sacrifice of another. It is an illusion. 

"Soul" is not something that you have, it is something that you are. You may chose to deafen your soul's urging for what appears to give more gratification on a physical level, but "soul" is never lost, it is, and upon death, it leaves the corporal to blend more freely with All That Is in spirit. In playing out this illusion, at any moment, in any instant an individual can walk away. 

The loss is felt more by the predator, than by the prey, who regains his/her sovereignty and freedom. The predator may threaten, cajole, rankle and demand a "return" but the individual has the choice/free will to keep walking away or return. Knowing this, the predator will entice his prey with all manner of mind altering, spirit altering substances and relationships. This is desperation on the part of the predator, not control or authority. It is a grand illusion, an act, a play, theater played out by the predator and the prey. 

Both predator and prey are endowed with soul and free will, if they choose to play this deadly game they both participate in the acute and painful consequences, but soul remains, noisily at first until it quietly plays like background noise. 

Each person is soul. Soul is Divine Consciousness that has decided to live an existence in a particular reality. In doing this many lessons are learned and Divine Consciousness wishes to experience itself through many realities. 

There are Universal Laws that govern each reality. Once the corporal vessel decides that the corporal and its vain promises are more important than active connection to Divine Consciousness, the laws that govern that choice play out. This is when it may appear that the individual is "lost" however the entire process of service to self is a no-win situation in the long run, both are loser, predator and prey. 

Because the bargain that was struck is based on vaingloriousness and not on personal sovereignty and service to others, it becomes a vicious cycle of gain and loss on both parts. Cultures that are built on the glorification of someone or something outside of self, outside of Divine Consciousness repeat this ritual incessantly resulting in the rise and fall of many nations as is seen in human history. If we look closely at what caused the fall, we can see that it was pre-empted by greed, covetousness, selfishness and displacement of integrity. 

Therefore, I would say that humanity may be "lost" but the soul never is, it simply finds another corporal avenue to learn more lessons about reality within All That Is.

Example is Better Than Perception

Example is Better Than Perception

So, I am having this conversation with my inner self, you know the ole wise one, whom you often ignore but in times of trouble you sit down so you can listen, that one, right???!!! I am having a fuss-a-rama because I don't understand why we chose to be on this God-forsaken Planet. I have been wondering this for ages now, especially since we create our own reality, blah, blah, blah, blah.

But me, I am fricken curious as to why we would want to know what it feels like to be in 3D... all polarized and under the command of some force that wishes to control and dominate our every move, just so we can devise ways to overcome it and find a way out of and off of, this PRISON PLANET!!! I been asking and asking and asking and other folks have asked me, because of course, I should know, right?

Now, I do believe that my questions will be answered. In fact, I know that there will be and has been so many answers to my questions, coming to me in various ways.. Some right in your face and others a little more imperceptive.

So..... make a short story long, I got my sign, my answer my sign, today, right after I said...... 

"If we were living on a higher plane of existence and we decided to devolve to this one, we must have been bribed to do it. Since we didn't know what it was like, we must have had some snake oil sales men come along and say......" 

"HEY, WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO COME TO 3D EXISTENCE????? Aren't you bored living in Peace & Harmony???? Wouldn't you like to explore your creative abilities and see if you can design a way back home. DON'T YOU WANT TO SHOW THE UNIVERSE THAT YOU CAN BE A SUPER-HERO!!!! And overcome all obstacles, even the most dire, down in the mouth ones? Don't you want to feel what is felt in physicality, the extremes of emotions, the passions, the lust, the hate, the anger, the frustration, the injustice..... blah, blah, blah.... Wouldn't it just be AN INCREDIBLY AMAZING JOURNEY???" 
Blah, Blah, Blah.

I had this talk with my innerself, and said, somebody surely must have bribed us, that eventhough we may have been on a so-called higher plane of existence, we were not completely satisfied... We were missing something, and that is when the Tempter/Temptress stepped in. They had been there.... They were feeling euphoric about what they thought it would be like... Or that is what they told us... Cause there are Con Artists on every spectrum of reality. 

I am wondering if they just wanted to see what it would be like if we did it. So they claimed, they did it, when in reality, they couldn't have... Who would???? Only some sado-masochistiic socio-pathic, psychotic maniac would chose 3D!!! I mean really. I love the material world, don't get me wrong, green grass, trees, blue skies, water, pretty animals,, but come on, then you tell me this is all an illusion, and that the material world is a holographic cruel joke, and then you ask me do I want to stay here???? Pulease!!!!!

So, yeah, back to my sign..... 

I am cleaning out one of my kitchen cabinets. Had to get a stool in order to reach to the back of it. I have been here 10 months so far.... so when I unpacked and filled it with my spices, I assumed the cabinet was empty. And lo, and behold, I find a packet of soy sauce, and an old, I mean really old, fortune cookie. They don't have expiration dates on them, but it crumbled in my hand when I retrieved it from the back of the shelf. I'm like, okay, I wanted a sign and I am convinced now that this must be it, because, come on, how possible is that? Do we say alignment or what? Someone put that Chinese fortune cookie on the very top shelf of my kitchen cabinet when they lived here, and when they moved, they did not retrieve it but left it for me to find??? I mean, come on, how probable is that??

I stop dead in my tracks, I read fortune cookies, I feel they are often right on the money, except for the lottery numbers, but other than that, there is always some good message there. I put it down on the table top. Not gonna look at it right now, besides, that would be crazy if there was a message in there to answer this question I been asking all my life. And why do I ask this question, because I don't feel at home here. I feel like a round peg, trying to fit into a square whole. Someone, a dear friend told me that years and years ago. I have never fit in. I am not a trendy, I really don't care about superficial stuff and pop culture, and I really ain't fanatical about sports, politicians, religions or any of that stuff. I always was a bit tentative.... 

Somewhere in my mind it just didn't make sense... and I won't go on about the other stuff that don't make sense on this planet. Another dear friend said... "If it don't make sense, it don't make sense." I have to accept that, though it is excruciatingly hard to do so.

After a short pause I open the package and the fortune cookie reads as follows......


I am now convinced that we were tricked, conned, bamboozled!!! 

They told us that we can think about it all day and all night for millions of years but until we actually experience it physically, that is, unless we are a bonafide example of what 3D is, or unless we become a bonafide example of what 3D is, we may perceive, perceive , perceive.... but we haven't truly attained it until we make it to 3D!!!!! 

I am struck, like a lightening bolt just hit me. 
came along..... 
and told us..... 
you gotta do it..... 
in order to know.... 
what it is to go through it.......

HEAVEN????      HELLL????
