Our Little World!

Our world may be the most craziest, mind blowing place…but…when I ‘touched’ heaven I realized that this world is the gateway. We ever search for that love and happiness down here, never realizing it is doing just that. You cannot truly appreciate happiness unless you have experienced sadness too. And in this emotional world we will not appreciate unconditional love unless we have experienced the conditional love that this little world brings. And we cannot love anything properly unless we learn to love ourselves first, and to do that we must experience it all emotionally so that we can feel and appreciate them all.

We go through some very difficult things, and when we see another struggling as we have, we have much empathy, compassion and love for them because of those experiences we’ve had. We have created all of that from those experiences and the more we experience the more love, understanding and wisdom go hand in hand with it.

It is a hard world, but when you ‘touch’ heaven you will appreciate each and every step we have taken down here. It has given us a gift in its pain, an understanding in its craziness…but most of all, created a love within us beyond words because of it.

It is hard to understand this in the beginning because we are so focused on just handling so much input. But slowly we begin to see the wisdom behind it all, understand we have been given something so beautiful, so profound in its understanding to be even at a loss for words…because there really is none. I touched it, I felt it, it is so much all at once…but all you can feel is that love, an acceptance of everything…because of what I had experienced and understood down here.

My understanding goes so far as to want to stay here a little longer, simply because I can now see what it is all doing. And in that understanding I can appreciate that I have attracted every single thing to me that would give me that beauty of understanding of what unconditional love is, by going through it all. And this little world has changed in my eyes because of that. I have begun to let go so many things and even just stop and appreciate so many things that are around me…butterflies, birds and yes, even those humans zoom, zoom, zooming, inside and out πŸ˜€

Its destiny is a gift, something once seen and touched you will know it has all been very worthwhile. And that is its miracle, from such a tiny place in this huge universe we will be given…everything we could ever want…unconditionally. And the love and happiness we had ever searched for, is just waiting until we are ready to understand it…by being on this little world! β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    1. Thank you, may you too enjoy this little world and the beauty it shares πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

    1. Than you Avigail, it is indeed a beautiful world. When we finally ‘see’ it through the lens of understanding, it leaves us speechless…as love always does. It is ever something felt with our whole being, like looking into our lovers eyes, not a word need be spoken. Thank you for sharing πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  1. Our journey is full of so much learning and many surprises. We don’t realize it at the time, but each step we take moves us closer to who we are supposed to be. The dark times makes us embrace the light and become loving compassionate beings. Beautiful post, Mark πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you kind lady, it is indeed a very beautiful place even if we can’t see that at first. But slowly our hearts are guided inward and touch that ‘other’ place inside us and show us something wonderful. May your journey be that something wonderful Michele, and find the release that unconditional love is. And thank you for sharing the love that you are πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  2. Dearest Mark, as we progress on our individual Journeys shedding that which no longer serves purpose in our lives, we are nudged closer and closer to a state of Bliss. We have to do the work and in that work yes we learn deep compassion in those who are suffering which is such a great Gift to receive. Everything means something, all hopefully leading us to a consistent state here on earth that is heaven. I know I’ve found that state and yes it is lasting longer and longer. Even when doing the mundane everyday things there is a sense of peace and joy. Once we come to befriend Unconditional Love, there is no turning back. I AM so happy for you that you have another notch in your belt. Good for you!!! xoxo

    1. It is indeed a very powerful place when we finally reach it within ourselves Amy. And I think this thing called life, even though difficult, is teaching us its beauty that drives it constantly. It just takes some time, hard work and yes, even happy events within it so that we can indeed appreciate what we have arrived at. And yes, we will most certainly never go back as it is such a beautiful and profound place. And we have found the true us among a little world that seems such a mess but is an incredible place to guide us. Thank you for sharing Amy, sharing you in those incredible photo’s that mother nature is. xox πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  3. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all be given a glimpse–a reminder of sorts–of what awaits us beyond this . . .oh, how it might change things.

    1. Oh yes indeed Kristine, a little touch of that to boost us along. But I suppose that’s what love is, to remind us of what is to come. I think that is where we build a little faith in where we are going. Thank you for sharing kind lady, may that love blossom in your heart too πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    1. Indeed it is Val, so many adventures good and bad is ‘balancing’ that understanding within us until we can begin to see its beauty.
      May its understanding visit us all dear lady, hold our hearts and let us see the wisdom that it all is πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  4. Another profound post Mark, with such depth of wisdom.
    Only by experience can you feel, only by feeling the lower depths of emotion can we truly appreciate the higher of love and joy.

    My own greatest leaps in awareness was only after being plunged into a pit of despair.
    And only I could climb out of that pit by realising I was worthy of loving myself and appreciating myself.
    As I altered my inner belief of my ingrained childhood perception of feeling unworthy.

    Many say this Earth is a school, as we learn to break from the Trap, of our own imprisonment of emotional baggage , as we let go and see the beauty within ourselves.
    It is only then I feel we really begin to appreciate the smaller things around us and the magic in which all of us are created.

    Thank you Mark for this wonderful post my friend.
    Much love your way.

    1. It is a very beautiful place Sue. Even though we always seem to be in a very stressful state. But that is ‘conditional’ love’s purpose, to show us that pain and stress so that when a little happiness comes along we do indeed appreciate it so much more.
      Wait till you become that ‘unconditional’ love, I cannot explain it fully. I could use every beautiful word in the dictionary…twice…and still would not touch its meaning, its feeling, or what it truly is. I just stopped, silent (don’t tell my friends that, they’ll laugh their heads off), and tried to touch what it all meant. But it wasn’t the place for that either, you just ‘were’ something else entirely.
      And you have indeed come through this world with great leaps and bounds Sue, I’ve watched your heart be tested from many places and you responded as only that inner love can do…and slowly stepped beyond it. We will attract from this little world the very thing that is needed because love is such a powerful energy, and so we can become that unconditional love that builds it all. And I feel that we won’t fully feel that unconditional world until we finally let go down here. Even just to breathe is conditional and so holds us back, but not for long. Eighty or ninety years in the stream of things is but a small drop of who we really are but long enough to give us a gift beyond words. Don’t get me wrong, at times I have felt such a beautiful contact with another or an event that has left me in an incredibly beautiful place, like a little worlds miracle to give us courage to keep going and step into what is to come.
      We will get there dear lady, even though I talk about a big event in our lives to understand our fear, this is still something we gradually do as we go through those many events in our lives anyway, it all talks to us so that we can find that inner love.
      Thank you for sharing dear lady, may your heart always stand in that beauty. And much love to you also Sue πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

      1. Such a beautiful response and so wonderful to read your words and know dear Mark you have touched and felt that exquisite place of unconditional love…
        I guess my own near to reaching that experience is to stand in nature, breathing in the beauty and just expanding myself to touch all there is… I often feel like opening my arms outstretched twirling around like some Julie Andrews singing the Hills are Alive! πŸ™‚
        Feeling such gratitude for this life and all of its lessons… For all of them, led us to this moment in time…
        And we are on the cusp of such change… Holding our hearts open with love I know is my only weapon against the dark shadowy world which has to be dismantled. So dear Mark.. I thank you for seeing my own progress and for being a witness along our pathway of discovery together …
        Much love returned my friend β€οΈπŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’›πŸ™

        1. That is so well said Sue, being in nature does indeed allow us to drop ‘us’ away and just be open to something wonderful. Like a rest spot in this journey. Now if we can just stop destroying the one rest stop we have on this little world. Your heart is singing my friend and can only share what you have created, and will attract accordingly. May that beautiful understanding ever be behind that smile you share πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

          1. Thank you again dear Mark…. I always try to keep that smile… Its ever present more so, these days , even though we are witnessing many earthly changes… I know deep within those changes are ultimately going to help change us for the better.. Much love your way ❀️

            1. Thank you kind lady, and much love to you also. May it always create that inner smile πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  5. I like the idea that we are standing at a gateway. We can step forward but we also have a responsibility to care for our gateway. I like that.

    1. Indeed it does Pam, like all we do it is up to us to stand in our love at any given time. It will share those experiences and test us in so many ways but slowly we will see that love. So that in eventually finding that self love, that is what we will finally give out and want to care for this little world that showed us so much. Great reply dear lady, and thank you for sharing your heart here too πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  6. It is in the living down here that we discover heaven, discover everything, all the layers that actually total the oneness❀️ Thankyou so much Mark for this post… received in gratitude. Hard days but getting there! Sending love to you down underπŸ₯°πŸŒˆ

    1. It is such a hard journey dear lady but I can feel you letting go of so much that has had a great purpose and now are becoming the change that they all taught. It is so raw dear lady and my heart goes out to you. But I know this world, though being hard, is truly guiding us towards something so profoundly beautiful. A re-meeting of our hearts to…everything…even Tom…beyond anything we can ever imagine. In my post ‘The Death’ the one thing that stood out as I was shown the journey, was that we are in separation now but from up there it is but a brief journey in that thing called ‘forever’, it is just a moment and from up there, there is no worry because we ‘know’ we will all be together again. Big hugs Barbara, breathe and feel what this little world is truly sharing in that incredible destiny that unconditional love is. Much love and light coming to you also my friend β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

        1. Hang in there dear lady, it is holding you with a great love, hard as it is to see with such pain. But it is there. Big hugs my friend β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  7. You are summing up so much with your post, Mark. We need to forget to go on this journey unbiased. I love how you said, this world is the gate. It is so true. This planet may be the best of teachers, when even definitely a strict and tough one. But I could imagine that you feel yourself in an intensity that you may not find anywhere else. And in that “feeling” lies awareness and insight. Love can be only appreciated and realized when we understand what love is not. As you said, it may be the craziest place, but it supports our journey so well… Thank you for this boost of awareness, Mark.

    1. It is such a profound place, bound in a tiny thing called ‘time’ so that we can achingly go through and feel so much. But that is the teacher, to feel something to its core so that it will be appreciated when found. I can always remember one of the first things Spirit taught me. When in Spirit form they all know everything…but do not ‘know’ it. They must experience something to ‘know’ it truly. While I ‘touched’ up there, I was amazed at being able to know something in an instant…anything with just a thought. But to fully understand required that experience. Just in that act of experiencing something gives an appreciation like nothing else, it makes us…us. And thank you for sharing your world too dear lady, it too gives much wisdom to all so that we can increasingly open to that unconditional love πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

      1. I couldn’t agree more, Mark. Only when we feel the essens of something and go through the experience we are able to learn a lesson. If we only hear it, it is not part of us. And that’s another good point. If we experienced something we have a deeper appreciation. Since I know how much effort it can be to make a soap, I appreciate others’ abilities to make it much more, just as an example. And in some things I am in appreciation because some are able to do things of which I have to say: the more I know, the less I know.
        Thank you very much for the insights you are sharing on such a heartfelt level, Mark.

        1. Thank you kind lady, and may we all reach that beauty inside us πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    1. My pleasure Jane, and in its understanding it will also bring so much more. It’s like anything we begin, it is strange, difficult and keeps us guessing. But like any work that we do, time will give us the experience to understand and become so much better at it, until it is second nature to what we are. And its destination is so beautiful to be beyond words. Thank you for sharing kind lady, you will indeed ‘know’ its beauty πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    1. That it is dear lady, and that connection goes on forever. And it does indeed touch everything so that we know it when we break through into it. Thank you for sharing Ka, may your path of discovery know it well πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  8. This is beautiful and much needed for me to hear. ❀️ it helped me take a nice deep breath and relax. The dots are all connected and connecting.I need not worry one bit β€οΈπŸ’œβ€οΈ

    1. We slowly stand back and begin to see the forest for the tree’s Danielle. And it is indeed a hard journey, but believe me the day you see it you will appreciate every step you have ever taken, it is that powerful a moment. You are loved by God…unconditionally β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

      1. As time goes by we gain that wisdom that love is Samantha. As a child we just live it. As an adult we struggle in trying to understand it. But when we touch that light within us we finally understand that it all has a purpose, we are indeed trying to find that love and happiness and slowly realize it isn’t ‘out there’ but how we approach the world inside ourselves. So we are constantly prodded, just so we can see ourselves and find what we are looking for. And it is there that we find our fears are the wall to that happiness. Understand those and we will understand love, they are beautifully (if very difficult), entwined in that search so that we will truly appreciate what we have had to endure to find that understanding. And as I said in the post, it is going through that , that we build that love, compassion and empathy…and in this case, for us as well when we finally understand πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    1. Each and every step is a blessing Linda, even though some are the terror of our lives. But especially those are the ones that build that empathy, compassion and love within us…they build such a beautiful understanding so that we will appreciate that unconditional love when we touch it β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½
