Are You Willing To Do The Work?

What are the goals you have for your life? Do you truly believe that you can achieve those goals? Are you willing to do the work to reach those goals?

A WAKE UP CALL TO MY SISTERS….

Uncategorized

Do you know why I call you Goddesses? Because that is what each and every one of you who reads this ARE! You are a Divine Extension of the Infinite Mother, but you don’t know that! You refuse to accept your perfection, you somehow think you are less than what you are! You are afraid to accept the fact that Infinite Power lies latent within you waiting for your recognition and acceptance of it’s Presence.

And what does that cause? It causes weakness! It causes craving! It causes attachment!! It causes you to look for others to satisfy the need to feel worthy. It causes you to look for a man that makes you feel special. It makes you crave the presence of another to say nice things, and treat you a certain way, and as soon as he deviates from the pattern of making you special you suffer! “If only he would keep calling me beautiful?” Pouty face. “If only he would kiss me like he used to!” Sad face. “If only he noticed me and would give me his attention.” Frowny face.

You refuse to accept yourself as beauty-full, you refuse to accept that you are complete, you refuse to love yourself completely because you think you need a man to fulfill you that acts a certain way, talks a certain way, walks a certain way, blah blah blah blah blah!

And the kicker is that you accept a man that is not full in his presence! You continually choose men that are lost, that are scared, that are fragile! And because of what the romance movies and books and all the bullshit that the media has told you, you somehow think that you will be the one who will help him, when he doesn’t want to be helped! You think that somehow his unreconition of his Divinity is means for you to jump in and show him the way, when all along he was never ready.

In your misunderstanding of your own Divinity you attract a man with his own lack of recognition. You are now two halves of two wholes. In order to enter into complete union in a romantic relationship you must be 2 wholes of two wholes which can then unite into the Infinite Whole.

But it all starts within your Self! You can no longer look for your beauty outside of your self, you must look within. You must walk in your Divine Presence and a man in his Presence will match you. Are you okay with settling continually for weak men that do what they want with you and throw you back? Men that say and act a certain way and all the while something seems missing within yourself? Men that refuse to acknowledge your Divinity?

You see sisters, these men have no power over you, and they will never make you feel a certain way. In understanding that your emotions can come in response to a man’s words towards you, you can just as easily tell yourselves that. No man will ever satisfy the hunger for Eternal depths that you seek if he does not even know who he is, and more so, if you refuse to accept who you are. You are all that matters in your reality. Your emotions belong simply to you! Your thoughts belong simply to you! You have control over those thoughts always! It is up to you!

Recognize your Goddess Presence sisters, know who you are, refuse to accept a man that is anything less than in his Divine Presence, and watch your world transform! It is always up to you!

All My Love,

IT IS NOT ENOUGH…

Uncategorized

 

Tonight I want to speak on a message of unity.

My dear brothers and sisters it is not enough that we are white, black, brown, gay, straight, bi, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, tall, short, skinny, fat. It is not enough that we separate each other based upon superficiality. It is not enough because this is not who we are!

Each and every one of us incarnate on this planet, as well as the multitudes of other beings, and not who we think we are. You, in your fullness, in your Divine Presence, are that which we call God! We are the Infinite Presence which we call Spirit. Call it what you like but we are unknowable! We are the unknowable in a form that we pretend is us!

We have lost our way dear brothers and sisters. We look in the mirror and say, “This is me! Zach, this white skinned, blond haired, 6 foot tall, CrossFitter, vegan, lover of all things, raiders fan, brother, son, friend, coach, writer, speaker, grandson, blah, blah, blah.” But this is not me. These are labels I give to myself in order for me to feel a sense of identity. The name Zach was given to me by my parents. Zach is not who I am, Zach is a way to identity this form. All of the great avatars, the great saints, have said we are something more than our conscious conception, more than our labels. Rumi said we are not a drop in the ocean we are the ocean in a drop. Jesus said you are the children of divinity. Seek if you are wanting and you will find that it is said by all the great masters.

And yet we perpetuate this idea of separation. We say I am Christian and I must fight all other religions. We say I am white and I must battle those with skin different than mine. We say I am straight and being gay is wrong. And yet we so rarely look to the other and say, “I am you.”

We so rarely take the time out of our day to ask ourselves, “Who am I?” We so rarely, if ever, ask ourselves, “Who am I when my eyes are closed? When there is no sense activity occurring, who am I? Who is witnessing this experience we call reality? Who is the witness?” These can be very enlightening questions for they take us deep within the Truth of our being. They take us to the depths of our soul, to the core of all Life, which is God.

We aim so intently to define who we are because we are afraid to seek into the unknown of our hearts. I am a bitch. I am cocky. I am a tool. All of these labels we give ourselves in order to protect our hearts from the unknown, and what are the fruits of these labels, sorrow and fear. As we put labels on ourselves we disconnect ourselves from the unity of life, from the unity of all our brothers and sisters. We use labels others have perpetuated to define us and increase our separation. “I am an American and we have to protect our borders. I am a Christian and those who don’t follow the word of Christ will suffer his wrath. I am a white and those with different color deserve less.” We can see these very clearly in our every day life…so I am offering a challenge.

My challenge is to begin to ask yourself who you are. My challenge is to question the beliefs you have and ask yourself if those beliefs fit the guidance of your heart. My challenge is to go forth into your day and recognize yourself in all forms. My challenge is to walk with a Presence that goes beyond conception, a regality that only the Divine Perfection could reside within. And as you do this, to witness that regality among all your brothers and sisters. My challenge is to look into the eyes of your brother, sister, mother, father, son, daughter, and observe the Eternalness in their soul. My challenge is for you to let go of everything you thought you were and become what you have always been!

It isn’t enough that you are black. It isn’t enough that you are white. It isn’t enough that you are Christian. It isn’t enough that you are Buddhist. It isn’t enough that you are gay. It isn’t enough that you are straight. It is only enough that you are Divine…pure perfect exactly as Nature made you and as you chose to come forth. You could identify with an oppressed class, but that is not you. You could identify with an oppressed race, but that is not you. You could identity with a thriving group, but that is not you. You could identify with a certain name, but that is not you. You could realize that you are nothing, and everything, and dissolve into Awareness, and you may very well find your Self.

You see, down to the atoms in our cells we all have the same atoms vibrating through us. We all breathe the same oxygen. We all live on One planet. We all live under One sky. We all share One Soul, and THAT is what you may call God, Spirit, Source, Consciousness.

We can only make changes within our consciousness if we recognize we are beyond what we conceive, that we are pure, perfect, infinite, and all beings are as well. We can only heal the world by first healing our hearts. We can only make a change when we become the change.

Do not allow the conditioning of your past determine the miracles of your future. Change your thoughts, change the world. Realize who you are.

All My Love,
Zach IAM

CUT THE BULLSHIT….

Uncategorized

Hello my brothers and sisters of Love,

It has been quite a while since I have written and I felt there is no better time than NOW to re-establish some thoughts!

I want to start off by expressing a very important, and incredibly profound, and dare I say, absolutely eloquent, statement to those of you who will read this…CUT THE BULLSHIT!!!

You, yes you, are so brilliantly talented and gifted and glorious it is beyond words! However, there is this part of you that holds you back…it holds you back from expressing yourself truly. It holds you back from allowing yourself the time to express the honesty you feel in your heart. And this part of yourself, the ego, then makes you question that inner honesty.

You see, my close friends, my dear brothers, I notice that they put on a front in front of others but when it is time for them to express themselves truly, they do so with me in quiet. They talk loudly and boisterously around other “men” about how they enjoy sex and how they could never go a week or a month without sex, and yet when it comes down to expressing the desires of their hearts, they cower like little boys. They suddenly become weak and fragile and utter how they wish they had a lover to truly spend their nights with simply holding.

This game that we talk is childish, nay, a child is true with their feelings, they cry if they need to cry and they rejoice when Presence lifts their hearts. This game is the ego’s way of obtaining power. You must go deeper…deeper into the stillness of the ocean that you are! You are not a wave in the ocean, you ARE the ocean!

When you truly are lying with yourself at night and it is only you and Spirit, where does your mind go? Does it go to the meaningless sex that your ego craves? Look again…does it not go to those simply moments of silence with yourself and a lover? Those moments of peace when the only sounds present are the beating of your hearts in unison?

CUT THE BULLSHIT!!! The only way you will ever bring anything into your experience is being honest with yourself, and with others. As you express what your feelings truly are it echoes out into the Universe and returns back to you. When you are speaking to others about what it is you want, express it fully! There is no need for you to hold back what it is you are desiring! The Universe already knows, there is no lying to your heart! When you are able to express that towards others you no longer hold yourself in resistance to allowing that into your experience!!

BE true to yourself always!

Are you afraid to truly ask the Universe for what it is you are wanting? Are you afraid that if you express it that somehow you may be let down as you have been in the past? Do not fret my dear brothers and sisters for our Great Divine Mother will always protect us, but we must have faith in Her! Just as our physical mothers have done the best they could to nurture us and give us all we desired, so the Great One looks upon us with great Love and wishes all our dreams fulfilled!

Do not let fear overcome the desires of your heart! Express them fully! Do not hinder the creative movement of Life by disregarding the yearning of your heart! The Great Father moves through us in full abundance and wishes for our success, for that is It’s success, and the only way we resist that is through our own disbelief.

Choose to believe in miracles! Choose to believe that you are supported in all ways from the bosom of the Mother Divine! Choose to let Love overfill your heart so that each moment is recognized as a blessing and a way to fulfill the the promise of eternal blessings that we have been offered!

CUT THE BULLSHIT! There is nothing strong about choosing to disregard the yearnings of the soul! By refusing to be vulnerable you are refusing to allow yourself the hope that there are great gifts waiting for you around the corner! The refusal of hope is the same as being caught in quick sand, allowing fear and concern to drown your Essence. You must choose Love and hope! You must choose to believe that the unseen Power is the power that creates worlds, and can surely manifest your heart’s desire, as that desire was placed their by the Great Divine!

My dear brothers and sisters, CUT THE BULLSHIT! You are glorious extensions of the One True Presence! Whether you wish to accept it or not, that is who you are and who you will always be! You cannot keep out perfection if you will allow it to come to you! Be honest with yourself, be vulnerable, and be honest with others! You will not remember the moments of trickery or falsity. You will remember the moments when in spite of all those that opposed the yearning of your heart, you held true to the belief in miracles! You will remember the times when the whole world opposed you, and you chose to follow the guidance within and from there observed the glory of the Infinite! You will remember the moment when you decided to say hi and watched the bounty of Divinity fall upon your life!!

My dear brothers and sisters, follow the call of your soul, leave behind the fears of yester-year, and allow the blessings that have always been yours! I Love You all so very dearly! You are my family! We are One!

With All My Love,
Zach IAM ❤ ❤ ❤
