A New Dawn A New Day

My Dear Friends,

A new dawn, a new day and I’m feeling good ๐Ÿ™‚

Its funny what a simple great night’s sleep can do for you, it gives your mind and your body time to rest, to regenerate your cells and give you the energy to push you through another day. And today, I’m feeling good ๐Ÿ™‚ Yesterday, I was caught up in the worries of the world, my empathy and compassion for our world and humanity was at its highest level, and although I have tried to manage my response to this level of empathy, it just got the better of me. Maybe it’s the ‘Human’ side of my being that reacted where my ‘Light being’ side of me would have stepped aside and said, ‘Yes, I see all that is going on in this world, now, let’s chill a little, send out our understanding, our love and compassion to the world and trust that they will receive our blessings and act accordingly’.

When I awoke this morning, I looked out of the window, I watched the sun rising across the sky and where I am in the East, I thought ‘I wonder what today will bring to our world as the sun rises from the East and continues to share its light across to West’? I wonder how many others will look up to the sun in wonderment and ask the same question! Each day brings us a new chance, a new life and a great opportunity to live!…To make a difference to not only our own lives but to the lives of others too, but it is our choice and who am I to try to tell people what to do, or how to act!….I am a nobody in the great scheme of things, I’m just little old me, yes I care about our world, yes, I can about the lives of everyย person on our planet, yes, I care about our environment and I want to see peace and harmony prevail….But, who am I?….This is a question I often ask myself…Who am I and ‘What can I do today that will really make a difference?

Well, today is a day, to smile, to hold my head up high, to share my love, my joy and my compassion to whoever wants and needs it, so here I am, a humble man living in Shanghai, sending out my love to you all ๐Ÿ™‚

Blessings my friends,

Namaste, with Love

Hollow Words Bring Us No Hope!

Published 27/07/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

It’s been a while since my fingers touched this keyboard and my heart has spoken words to you!

I, like many others, have been lost for words as we watch the unfolding dramas of our 21st Century world, our so-called civilised societies which have been caught up in wars for no reason, and whole communities within these civilised societies turned against each other in the name of race/colour and religious belief.

As I look at all that has unfolded over this past year alone, I shed tears, tears for mankind, tears for our world and tears for our future. As we continue to look at each other with hatred in our eyes, it is like we are caught up in an elaborate computer game in which the players manipulate the drones to follow their lead, to fight and to die at all costs, and move on to the next stage of the game in search of more power and wealth!….Elaborate computer game….Is it our real truth?

……….Elaborate computer game….Is it our real truth?

As we become more fixated with games or war, of power, ofย seekingย greater riches and strength, we lose track of who were are!….We no longer socialise face-to-face, we only communicateย in a digital world, we have, or are certainly losing our abilities to communicate, to connect to others with empathy, to see the pain in someone else’s eyes and to understand their point of view, as we push forward relentlessly to reach our own goals…to win at all costs!

I see hundreds of innocent men, women and children mowed down as they watched the fireworks and celebrated a national days holiday, I see thousands of displaced men women and children forced from their own countries due to war, to the greed for control and power, I see innocent families held hostage in a Church and a Priest murdered….All for what!….

Where, my friends, does it end!….

We are all born into this world equal, we have no belief systems, no hatred and no goals to attain…life takes all on different journies, some of the beliefs we take on are good, and some are bad….it’s a flip of a coin which pathway we decide to take, what we choose to believe and how we choose to behave…!

Anyone who is not working towards the truth is missing the whole point of living!

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, Your behaviour does!

My heart sends out love and compassion to all those in pain, to all those who are suffering and to all those who need some love in their life.

Namaste, with Love

Always

My Day’s Filled With Nothingness!

Published 22/04/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I’m so sorry once again for being away from my blog so often, but I have once again been experiencing difficulties getting through to my blog due to the ‘Great China Firewall’. I do hope that I will be able to connect more often because I miss the interactions with you all, I miss reading your posts and I miss the ‘Group Heart’ that you are all so much a part of in my life ๐Ÿ™‚

My day’s are filled with ‘Nothingness’, I guess I mean filled with no challenges, no pain, no anxiety, no wanting, just peace ๐Ÿ™‚ ‘You should be grateful’, I hear you say ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes my dear friends, I am so grateful, so grateful for all I have in my life because I am truly blessed, truly blessed with the awakening in my life, the spiritual journey that I am following, the lessons that have come to me during my lifetime thus far, the pains I have felt, the challenges I have faced, the love I have found and lost, the people that have come into and out of my life, grateful for each and every day.

This past year or so I have been working on my inner self, connecting with my Divine Self, opening and anchoring my channel pillar of Divine Connection in service to Mother Earth and the Heart of Humanity, this journey has opened my eyes to the hidden, my mind to the nothingness and my heart to the love and compassion that is so much a part of our existence. It has been a difficult and extremely challenging year which has brought me directly into the face of Karma, with Aspects, with Past Lives and with all the baggage left to me in this spiritual lifetime by endless reincarnations before me. And, although it has been a challenging, worrying, fearful and shocking experience, I have prevailed, I came out the other end of my learning with new knowledge, with open eyes, open heart, and a very open mind. My meditation practice has taken me on journeys through space and time, I have met with previous selves, seen their life, felt their pain and taken up their reigns in this lifetime, my life has changed, changed for the better, and I look forward to more days of ‘Nothingness’ in my life, day’s in which I can be of service to Humanity and Mother Earth.

I look forward to connecting with you all again soon my friends, may your weekend be filled with love and compassion and on this Full Moon day and as we enter into the Wesak Period, may you all be blessed with the Love of the Buddha ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste with Love

Spread Your Light Through Kindness

Published 07/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

CW5c_qYWsAAN9TS.jpg

My Dear Friends,

I’m back!

It feels like an eternity since my last post, sorry we have been away for so long!….. My wife May and I have been away for Christmas and the New Year, spending time with family and recharging our batteries in readinessย for yet another year back here in Shanghai.

2015 was a very interesting year, one in which was full highs and lows, my heath took many twisted turns for the worst and I had that death experience in the beginning of December, that experience in itself gave me a severe wake up call, it focussed my attention towards myself, to my life and to my future, it helped me realise what is important and what is not and brought greater realisation re the 80/20 principle, so now we are back and forging ahead into 2016 I now need to focus more on myself to my health and what means most to me and really start living the 80% for me, my health and my family, and engaging ย in and enjoying what I love to do, my spiritual practice, my channelling, healing etc and spending the remaining 20% on work and paying the bills ๐Ÿ™‚

I will continue writing as often as possible and this year I intend to pull together a book filled with my spiritual posts from this blog, my tweets, short self-help articles, items of inspiration, photography and general information on compassion, love, peace and happiness. I have been meaning to do this for many years now and now I feel that the time is right to get this done, so if you have any connections or experience in how to create and publish a book, please let me know because I have no idea where to start!

My focus for 2016 is sharing my light through kindness and I will look at every opportunity to share the gifts given to me with as many people as possible, I will shine brightly in 2016 and give out my love, my support and my healing energies to all as needed.

Blessings of love and light to you all and my wish that you, your family and your friends are blessed with love, good health, peace and happiness for 2016.

Namaste with Love

A Channeled Message I did From Lord Buddha

Published 17/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

CSSs7aBWEAAhOlS.jpg

My Dear Friends,

I just came across a channeled message that I channeled from Buddha back in September whilst I was undergoing an intensive channeling and meditation training session.

The message is so clear and means so much to me, I hope it will mean much to you too!

Namaste, with Love

Always

The breath of life is on the lips of all beings

Innocent hearts are filled with joy and compassion

Cluttered minds create resistance and block the light of God from reaching the souls of many.

Practice stillness, contemplate peace and live in the compassionate light of God and support the birthing of new generations that will come to the light with grace and ease.

Many tears will flow and help wash away the pain, and the smiles that follow the tears will be filled with the innocence of a child at play, this joy will be everlasting joy and will reach the hearts of all beings, bringing ‘Oneness’ and Peace on Earth.

My channeled message from Lord Buddha dated 15th September 2015

 

 

 

Is the mess in our world only God’s problem?

Published 09/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

12227682_1230334320313704_2844078374001593465_n

My Dear Friends,

I came across this image this morning and thought…Wow!…

Isn’t that the truth?…Is poverty, famine, greed, war, disease, injustice in our world only God’s problem?

Should we wait for him/her to deal with it for us, or, should we stand up and be counted?…..Actually get up off our butt’s and do something about the problems in our world!

We are after all, guardians of this planet, guardians for our future, for the future of our children. We all have an obligation to take ownership of what goes on in our world, we are all part of humanity, we are all part of the problem and the possible solution….We are stronger than we think, we can do something about these problems and issues, we can make change, we can stop greed, we can stop injustice, we can stop starvation, we can ALL make a difference and change the future….

We are but a grain of sand amongst billions of other grains of sand, but we are all ‘One’, we all come from the same seed of creation and we owe it to ourselves, to our brothers and sisters of humanity, we owe it to our ancestors, we owe it to our children, we owe it to our grandchildren, we owe it to OURSELVES!

Today is the day for you to sit up, look in the mirror and say “I am part of the problem and, I am part of the solution’ and ‘I can make a difference to this world, our world’..

Go on my friends, do a pledge to yourself, stand up and be counted and be a part of the change you want to see in this ‘Our’ world ๐Ÿ™‚ Then go out and actually do something! Join a peace group, help out in a homeless shelter, sign a petition, stop using a product or buying food, drink or fuel from the companies that are polluting our planet, poisoning our children, draining our natural water systems, taking advantage of low wages and not paying their taxes. Stand up for yourself, for your family, for your future ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste with Love

Reach Out With A Heart Filled With Compassion

My Dear Friends,

A Kind Gesture…..What does that mean?

…….. It will mean different things to each and every one of us….

A smile is a good place to start, it costs you nothing but it can bring joy to the receiver ๐Ÿ™‚

A Hug goes a long way and almost certainly brings a feeling of love, caring and support to the receiver ๐Ÿ™‚

A helping hand…maybe something simple as carrying the heavy shopping bags for a person at the grocery store, cleaning the windows or cutting the lawn for an elderly neighbour….

Giving a bag of essentials to a homeless person, not always money….but a toothbrush, toothpaste, some gloves, some soap, a small towel, sanitary towels, some socks an old jumper, a warm hat…anything is good ๐Ÿ™‚

Just being there for someone…..no talking…just listening ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you can hold out you hands to someone this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste, with Love

My Dear Friends,

How often do you measure yourself?…..

We think we are too fat, too thin,

Too tall, too short,

Hair to short or too long,

Face too long, or too round,

Too poor, not smart enough, single, gay, disabled, black brown, yellow, etc etc….

But how often do you stop, think….. and realise….

How much your friends and family love you?…And..

How amazing you really are?

Never, Never Forget……You Are Perfect!….

You Are Perfect, Just The Way You Are…..

You Are You, You Are Special…..

And My Dear Friends, You Are Loved ๐Ÿ™‚

Blessings to you all for a wonderful weekend….Stop…Think….And…Remember…

You Are Perfect!

Words of Inspiration, Where Do They Come From?

Published 03/08/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

11709754_1197613320264544_7606110403020720044_n

My Dear Friends,

It has been a few weeks since my fingers hit this keyboard and linked to my mind in order to bring about a post to you on endlesslightandlove.com . I’m truly sorry for this absence of leave and I hereby take up my responsibilities for this blog once again and endeavour to bring you a today.

I have been travelling for the past few weeks, keeping myself out of trouble, connecting with nature, meditating and gaining some most needed spiritual rest. The past year has been challenging but good and my life is a joy so I have everything to be grateful for.

This got me thinking……Where do my words come from?

Im not an avid reader, I do read books and articles from time to time but they are mainly to do with my work and my spiritual beliefs, I don’t really enjoy writing and if i sit down and try to think of something to write about my mind goes blank, so I guess I’m as the old saying goes; ‘Lost for words’! So where do my blog posts come from; where do my poems, my words of inspiration come from?……..

I channel, I’m part of the global ‘Open to Channel’ OTC program that is created and presented by my dearest heart teacher and mentor ‘In’ Easa Mabu Ishtar’. We are a collective of students from all around the world who have different backgrounds, cultures, languages and religious beliefs who come together for the OTC program and channel from the Ascended and Enlightened Masters, we learn to open our channel and receive, information can come to us in various forms, it can be words, knowledge, mandala’s, written or graphical text, hieroglyphics, pictures, music etc, whatever the Masters deem important for us and humanity at that given time is received through our channel. I have personally received words, mandalas, sounds in the form of music, chanting in another language unknown to me, texts in a hieroglyphic format, mantras and graphical images, also channeled are answers to questions/problems etc that may come to me at another time and the answers come to me at the right moment in order to help someone out that maybe I have not even met yet!

So back to my original question…Where do my words come from?….Maybe some of them do come from this body, this consciousness and maybe some others come to me from the Ascended Masters, from Higher beings, from the Angels, Arch Angels or even from my own Ascended family members! Often I sit and think about this, I write a post and wonder ‘where did those words come from, i often sit and re-read a post and at the end think, Did I just write that!

Who knows!…..I’m just a humble man, I’m not seeking any fame or fortune, I don’t receive any income from this blog, I don’t receive any payment for any of my posts or for my time….All I know is, I write, I post and I try to help those in need as often as I can, my door is always open and my ears are always open to listen with the intent to try to understand and I offer my support to those who reach out to me.

So, I will continue to channel, I will continue on my own spiritual journey, I will always be there for anyone who needs my help and I will always offer my hand and my love to help humanity, mother earth and our environment.

It’s great to be back and amongst those whom I love ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste with Love

What Beliefs Are We Feeding Our Children?

Published 03/06/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

IMG_9570

How do our children learn to hate, become racist, judgemental or prejudiced?

We all come into this world innocent, we don’t harbour any belief systems, we don’t hold any hate in our hearts, we see every other human being as the same as us, we make friends easily irrespective of social, religious or ethnic differences and we love each other unconditionally…..

…….So what goes wrong, how do we learn these behavioural and emotional traits?

As parents, grandparents and siblings, it is our duty to help our children to grow, to learn and to evolve, to help them achieve the best life they can and live their lives in peace with love and compassion in their hearts, this is our duty…..

Is it yours?……….

Be a part of your child’s life, show them the right ways in life, allow them to meet with and integrate with other children from other religious backgrounds, countries and cultures, take them out and show them the wonders of mother nature, let them feel the warm sun on their skin, the rain on their face and the grass beneath their feet, teach them to respect nature and all it glory, teach them to love animals as equals and to foster if you can.

Our planet is under great threat, humanity, and our natural resources are under great threat, these threats including global warming, famine, severe water shortages and wars between countries, religions and ethnic races are just a part of these threats, animals are becoming extinct, wiped out from the face of this earth due to greed and we,…and our children can turn it around….

We can make a difference,

We can bring back love, compassion and a true sense of brotherhood for mankind…… for the benefit of us all!

Now is your chance….

Make a difference in a child’s life,

Make a difference for humanity.

Namaste with Love

My Dear Friends,

Today is February 14th, Valentines Day, so I thought I would send out this short message to remind you all that ‘You Are Loved’!

Valentines day is not just about a relationship from one person to another but its also about remembering that ‘You are Always Loved’ by someone, it may be a friend, a colleague, a pet or a family member, it may also be that you are loved for what you do, what joy you bring to someone’s heart through your blog, your charitable work, your artwork, you are an inspiration to someone…so please remember

You Are Loved..

Friendship.

What does it mean to you?

Can you be friends with your family?

Can you be friends with your spouse?

Can you really be friends with your colleagues?

How about friendships with your animals?

To me, they are all friends, my heart is open to all and I will take on many new friends as they come into my life. Some come into my life and stay, and some go, they move on with their life’s journey when it takes them on to new pastures. I too move on, some friends have been with me forever, some i have not seen for years but they are still true friends and they would be here for me in a moments need, I too would be there for them whatever the time of day, the time to get there and cost is irrelevant because I would get there as soon as i can. Friendships with family, often challenging but the love is there no matter the challenge.

Friendship is to be worked on with many or as simple as simple can be, with few words exchanged, you both go on with life knowing the other completely and loving each other unconditionally, without the need for words. Being there for your friend and listening without judgement is so special and appreciated by the other, which in turn will repay itself at a later date..no time limit needed ๐Ÿ™‚

How often do we recognise our friends, how often do we tell them how much they are loved and appreciated? Often not enough as we take the relationship/s for granted, they are always there, we are always there but sometimes a hug, a quick call, a note of appreciation is all it takes to say…

“I love you my friend, you are so much appreciated in my life, thanks for being there for me” ๐Ÿ™‚

So, my dear friends, thank you for being a part of my life, we may never meet face to face, but you are all true friends, your support of my blog is so appreciated and your kind words, comments and faves give me the spirit to do more, to help more people, to continue on with my spiritual journey and make my life and yours a better life, each and every day.

Who Does Heaven Love Most?

Published 17/01/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

heavenly-lights

My Dear Friends,

One man kills for peace
Another man lives for it;
Yet the first man loves his dog
And beats his children,
And the other loves his children
And beats his dog.
Would you be so bold as to declare
Which man heaven loves most?

Love’s flame glows
In both victor and vanquished.
Who has won?
Who has lost?
God lives in both master and slave.
Who is beating whom?

It’s been written, “All that has happened,
Has had to happen.
All that must happen
Must happen.”
So who can stand outside the circle of
Heaven
To Direct it’s grasp?

I do hope you all have a great weekend
Namaste with Love

My Way or The Highway!…Or Is It?

Published 14/01/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

1010125_979450085402130_8576082530423931245_n

My dear friends,

There are I believe many true words written in the image above. Words that reflect some of the problems we have in this world, where one country believes it is greater than another, one religion believes it is the only religion, one corporate which believes it is the only business on earth or one person who believes they are better than you or I, or one media outlet which believes it is the only voice or opinion to what is going on in our world!

When I sit down and talk to anyone, I use empathy, I listen with the intent to understand, I may not fully agree with everything that person says but I will observe their thoughts and treat them with respect in the understanding that they will offer me the same levels of support and courtesy. This is how I was brought up. I remember my grandfather talking to us children and saying that everyone we come to meet in our lives irrespective of their name, their title, the colour of their skin, their job etc was to be treated with the same levels of courtesy and respect and I have thankfully remembered those words all my life, I still get sad when I see people being treated badly, often on the street, in restaurants, service counters and of course the media, where people think ‘They’ are better and look down upon the people they are talking to (or often shouting at)!

Wouldn’t it be nice for once to have a world full of respect, where ‘We’ as human beings started to actually respect each other, to look at each other eye to eye, to look inside the eyes of the person we are talking to and to see their soul, to connect with empathy and to listen with actual intent to understand what they are saying or trying to say, to reflect on their thoughts and digest the emotions that are shown to us before we respond with our reply.

I believe that respect is a genuine staring place towards world peace, once respect is established, we can foster love, build relationships and live happier lives.

Just a thought…..

Namaste with love

What Is Your Calling In Life?

Published 08/01/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

IMG_5540

Having a Complete Life

How can we live a complete life, an ideal life that is full of happiness joy and fulfillment? The key to this success lies in making the best use of the limited time we have. We only have decades to live, and if we then subtract all the time we spend sleeping and eating, what’s then left isn’t much.

The sacred and spiritual task is the reason we came into this world. These specific tasks are different for each person, but most of them involve being of service to something greater than oneself. People who manage to actively work on their own sacred tasks are filled with happiness and joy, because they understand the mission, and they know what to do.
Their reward is a profound sense of satisfaction.

When they look back at their experiences, the people they have helped, the friendships they have made, they cannot help but smile. They have done a hundred out of a hundred things they wanted to accomplish. Theirs is the complete life, a life of meaning.

The sacred task is your primary purpose in life. I wonder if you have already identified it? If not, look for something that leverages your talents and abilities to serve a greater purpose. It will be a calling, something you are called upon to do. Discovering what it is will be your first step to start living the complete life of your own.

Have you found yours?

Food for thought my friends, food for thought!

Namaste with Love
Always
