Be all that you can be! No, I'm not talking about the US. Army, although, maybe they were onto something. Lately, I have come across what I consider a cosmic thread that has been intertwined in much of what I have been reading. This thread may represent the next step in our spiritual evolution. And perhaps it's not a new concept, but it has been rearing its head lately. And when that happens for me, I pay attention. This cosmic thread may have just been stated in such a way (or ways) that have made it abundantly clear, this is where we are to go as a species, as spiritual beings.
It began when I was reading the offering by Neale Donald Walsch, called Friendship with God, as well as some of his earlier books. The books insisted that we really have nothing to do in life. Rather we just need to "be". What? But, hey, we are such doers in our society that we will keep doing something until we get it right.
In trying to create our lives, we "do" because we may not know of anything else to do. This message was emphasized in a booklet by Walsch as well, called Bringers of the Light. This booklet stated that doingness will flow from beingness, naturally. This concept has been reflected in other works as well.
In the release from James Twyman, The Secret of the Beloved Disciple, the message revolves around the reemergence of the "feminine principle" as embodied by Mother Mary and that it is time for humanity to take its next step and "be" the Second Coming, if you will. The book states that it is time for us all to "be" what it is that we wish to be. It is time for us to "be" the Divine Light rather than insist that it must come from outside of us. Mother Mary insists that we are the "miracle." And in order to open the door to our next level we must realize (make real) that which we already are.
Becoming What You Want To Have
One of the gifts I gave to my wife, Brenda, for Christmas was the book, Walking Between the Worlds: The Science of Compassion by Gregg Braden. Actually, I had my eye on this book for sometime , when my wife asked for it for Christmas. One of the messages in the book is that that which you "most choose to have in your life, you must first become." When I read this, I almost could not believe it. It was like the universe saying, "listen up!"
I had also begun re-reading a book that was published in the 30's called the "I AM Discourses". The book asks us to call forth that which we choose to be and invoke the "I AM" presence. It asks us to be the spark of God that each of us is.
I couldn't help but recognize the synchronicity at work here. Why was this message coming to me (and us) at this time? In actuality it is a very simple message: "be that which you seek to be." I remember a few years ago hearing (and paraphrasing here) what one wise soul said, "In order for there to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nation. In order for there to be peace in the nation, there must be peace in the family. And in order for there to be peace in the family, there must be peace in the individual." Yes, it all begins with each one of us.

Where Can We Find Our Answers?
How often do we look outside of ourselves for our answers when all we have to do is be that which we seek to have in our lives? This "cosmic thread" of beingness is asking us to recognize its weaving into our lives. How simple! For a long time in much of what I have read, we have been told that we are already Masters, all we have to do is recognize it.
I decided from all of this that I would "be" at least one thing that I would choose to have in my life, each day. This beingness means embodying the feeling, the essence of what I choose to become. I could actually feel my heart center opening more and more, revealing who I really am, that which I choose to be when I did this.
As I choose and become loving, I begin to see this reflected in my life. As I choose and become peaceful, I begin to see this reflected in my life. As I choose and become compassionate, I begin to see this reflected in my life. It is the Universal Law of Attraction that is operating here. Our thoughts and feelings become the magnetic force which "pulls" these experiences to us in life.
When I hear all of the calls for worldwide meditations from James Twyman, Marianne Williamson and others, (primarily over the Internet) I recognize this spark, this beingness is being called forth. This beingness becomes a catalyst for great change, for the individual, the family, the nation, and the world. But until we recognize and embrace this beingness, we may continue to look outside ourselves for our answers.
What I Am Choosing To Be Right Now?
Some questions you might ask yourself are: "What am I embodying now, what am I being now?" It is a conscious choice? Did you deliberately choose that which you are being right now? As is pointed out in the Conversations with God books, we are human beings, not human doings. It is not that we don't "do", but again, let it flow naturally from what we choose to be.
It is interesting to note also that Pope John Paul II remarkably stated that there is NO hell (that hell is a state of mind) and that God is NOT a punishing deity. (Of course, the Pope was just verifying what a great many people already knew). This is certainly quite a shift. For centuries, the Catholic Church has claimed just the opposite. The point is that a great many people put their faith in false concepts that religious leaders were putting forth. And now people don't have to "be" fearful any longer.
The test of truth is putting it into your being. Do we dare to be all that we can be? In dream language, an army represents disciplined aspects of the self. So it is interesting that the "be all that you can be" slogan relates so well to the shift in consciousness we all are seeking. As we dare to discipline what we are being, what we are feeling, like the troops, we march in rhythm and begin to remember who and what we truly are.
Making the Shift
So, the cosmic thread comes full circle, beckoning us to let it weave its way into our lives. It is asking us to finally make this shift and make real what is already real within us. As we have entered this new era, it symbolically offers us opportunities for unparalleled spiritual experience and understanding.
May you all be blessed beyond your wildest dreams. May you all truly be all that you can be, and are already.
