God’s View of the Death Penalty – Excerpt from IF GOD WAS LIKE MAN

IF GOD WAS LIKE MAN Through Barbara Rose, PhD

So if God was like man, would his justice system include the death penalty?

Should I kill you if you break a law?

Should I strike you with lightning, which is electricity, if you commit a crime? Would the threat of a lightning strike help you grow or evolve or truly learn the effects of your intentional actions? Would it help you make amends?

Do you seek to make amends when you have hurt another? Do you ever wish for the opportunity to do this? For your growth?

So if you seek to change or grow, shouldn’t all of humanity seek to do the same? Shouldn’t or wouldn’t it be beneficial if those who committed unpleasant acts had the opportunity to right their wrongs in some way? Or should they simply be put to death?

I ask you, if I were to judge you, how severe should the crime be? One lie? How about thinking a hurtful thought?
What about having an unkind motive for an act, regardless of the goodness of the act itself? Should I strike you with lightning and end your life abruptly for an unkind or unloving motive?

Isn’t premeditated murder based on an unkind or unloving motive?

Yes, it is.

Don’t you punish based on motive?

Yes, you do.

So if God was like man, he would be wise to give those who committed unloving acts based on unloving motives the opportunity to correct and learn from their ways, change their belief system, evolve, grow, heal, and then set an example for others who have done similar acts. In that way all would benefit.

I do not command you to kill. I have no commands.

So who made you the commander of others?

Why don’t you simply command yourself? And if there are individuals who are a danger to society, put them in a place where they can spend the rest of their lives in contemplation. In that way they may be able to correct, or learn, or grow, or heal. Then you will have created a situation where growth is achieved, and thus the cycle is complete. For to end people’s lives does not cause an ending at all. They are very much alive after this life. So you are in essence cheating yourselves out of the growth and evolvement of souls who choose to come into a life to evolve. As they evolve, humans make mistakes, commit misdeeds, and behave incorrectly.

Just take a look at your own life for a multitude of examples.

Do not judge severe behavior. Screaming at a child, causing a child’s self-esteem to diminish, committing murder, rape, or incest, stealing the belongings of another – these are all actions by people who have not yet evolved.

These actions all cause pain; some of them cause long-lasting pain; but all of the pain can be healed over time and with the help and support of others who have experienced it, and who therefore seek to help others evolve rather than destroy the opportunity for growth.

How to Stop Worrying About What Others Think About You

SelfLovreRx

By Barbara Sherry Rose, PhD

I know what it feels like to worry about what other people will think of me. I used to feel tremendous fear and anxiety during that phase of my life when I was facing a choice of either moving forward into the field of broadcast journalism or into the field I am in now and will be in for as long as I live.

Fear of what others will think has prevented many people I have spoken with from following their own truth. Instead, they held themselves back and remained unfulfilled inside.

Nobody can force you to make the positive changes you would like to make in your life. Nobody can make your choices for you. Did you ever stop to consider whether all of the people whose opinions you are concerned about ever come to you asking for guidance about their lives?

Think about it for a moment. Who are “they” to begin with? Family, friends, neighbors, people who live in your part of the world? And what do “they” think? What if they told you they think the direction you are contemplating is fantastic and wonderful? What then? Would you then have a new worry about success or failure? Would you worry about whether you were good enough in your field of service?

You see, all of the above–what people think, what you think, success, failure, being good enough–it all comes from the passion you feel about what you are doing, being, creating, and expressing from your heart. That is all that matters.

Suppose you love to teach children. Does this mean that you need to receive the award for most popular teacher every year or a PhD in education to make a true and lasting difference for the children? Don’t people and children feel your care? Yes, they do. Don’t you feel it when someone truly cares about you? Yes, you do.

Do they need a certain title or a certain appearance to touch your heart and brighten your day? No, they don’t. What matters most is purity of motive. Moreover, that is what you really feel coming from other people, their motives.

If your motive is pure and from your heart, there is no such thing as failure. Whether a business succeeds or a financial venture profits has nothing to do with the goodness in your heart or with your true worth.

No one gave you this goodness and no one can ever take it away.

The feelings you have about yourself are completely based on how you view yourself. To transform your self-view to match your ideal, you can come to trust and rely on the process of receiving the higher perspective from God through your writings.

Trusting the Process

It does take time and many small experiences to build that trust. As you experience receiving new realizations, support, and the pure views you can have about yourself along with how to integrate these pure views, you will come to find that this process is so pure, and so priceless.

It is important for you to realize that your current level of consciousness, those views that you currently hold about yourself truly cannot be transformed at the same level of awareness that you have now. If that were possible, then you would have already transformed your views of self, and you would feel pure self-love and acceptance.

To receive the higher view or perspective, all you need to do is write from your heart and ask your Higher Self to give it to you. Then, re-read what you receive.

Transformation in Difficult Situations

01-spring-bold

It is no doubt that so many of you are going through deep challenges on many levels of your life. Some of you feel pain and confusion. Others feel torn, not sure of the “right” path to take. And many of you feel a sense of disillusionment as you face your challenges and wonder what is the best course of action to take.

So here is your answer.

The only course of action to take stems from the deepest truth within your heart. Your head will drive you in many directions as the ego loves drama, as well as creating scenarios within the mind that take you off into many different directions, except into your heart.

You see, life on Earth right now is forcing each and every soul to awaken to your complete Divine essence on all levels. Not just in career and relationships, but with your essence, your truth, what you really came into this life to be, feel, do and experience as your grandest Self – your Higher Self in physical form.

So the “challenges” are here to get you to honor your truth – to move you out of fear and uncertainty and into what your authentic alignment with Divine Source means – living it all out in every area of your life.

This requires tremendous courage. It requires you to reach deep within and ask yourself what feels so true to you? Ask yourself. Allow the head games to be washed away by connecting solely to the core of your heart center – for it is in that core where your Divine essence, and all of your answers dwell.

When you can be and express your truth, in all areas, on all levels, without fear of any kind, you will come to know an inner peace, a relief, a sudden burst of inspiration, because you have consciously connected to your Divine Source Energy, and this is the energy that will clear the way for you.

So many of you are beaming on all levels. Please continue to reach out and help those that have been living in fear, reach out and share more of your services, your heartfelt guidance and your messages – they are so deeply needed now.

Trust and know that every situation with which you are now faced is there to bring you into a Higher level of Spiritual growth, and into full alignment with your Divine Heritage.

You are all one. You are all Divine. You are all here to share, be and express every glorious facet of your Divine nature.

I strongly encourage you to take a bold step into your deepest truths – into your heart – and if you feel fear or uncertainty, look deeper into your heart. It is your heart essence – your pure spiritual alignment from the heart center that will lift you above any and every seeming obstacle.

There will be many opportunities to come for you to stand in your truth. I guide you to do so at all times.

Please keep one thing in mind at all times – always put out, or give, or do only that which you would like to receive in return. Another suggestion for you during your challenges and transitions is to give yourself the advice you would give to a dear friend who is in your shoes. This will help you much in clearing away the fears and uncertainties that have been keeping you stuck on any level.

You are so deeply rare and special. Every one of you. You are so vastly needed – even your smile makes such a difference. Trust that you are going through a few challenges because they will take you to a Higher place – and that is to your Highest Divine Essence while in physical form.

Sacred Relationships

0-pink-tulips_HiRes

Source through Barbara Sherry Rose, PhD

1. What is a “Sacred Relationship”?

2. How does this differ from the relationships we have had in the past?

3. Why is this change taking place?

4. How can I change my perspective to adjust to this new paradigm?

5. What will happen if I make this adjustment?

6. How are the roles between men and women changing now on the Spiritual level?

THE ANSWERS

1. What is a “Sacred Relationship”?

A Sacred Relationship is one where all of the encoding on the cellular level from the eons of conditioning among humanity are now evolving to “catch up” to your spiritual evolution.

What this means is that the roles men and women have played are now coming up to the Light to be “re-adjusted” and awakened on all levels.

This is a time of great transition, as the old and outmoded ways of belief and actions are consciously replaced with a spiritual harmony, respect, and gender neutral preferences. What I mean by “gender neutral preferences” is that you are to view each other as pure spiritual beings, without all of the games and programming that have not served you well in the history of humanity.

This is a time where “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” plays its greatest role.

There will be more of a shared sense of purpose, a shared spiritual service in whatever form of service you chose to come into this life to express, however, in this new relationship paradigm or view, you will no longer have a “war between the sexes” but will honor each other as equal spiritual beings.

The games of old no longer work, and quite frankly, the reason why they never worked was because many of your societies and cultures have conditioned you to react and respond, rather than be and be pure, transparent, and genuine with all of your intentions.

So in this new relationship view on Earth, you can have more open telepathic communication, more of a “knowing” that does not need words to be expressed, and more of a spiritual intimacy that transcends the purely physical intimacy, however, physical intimacy will continue to be as delightful and pleasurable, even more so as you share purely.

2. How does this differ from the relationships we have had in the past?

Typically, chaos and discord seem to precede newfound clarity and resolution. So you might see an increase in the divorce rate, as you outgrow the one you may be with, while you are aligning with your Higher purpose, and your partner does not support your spiritual growth.

Many of the relationships you have had in the past seemed to require “vows” – forever. In this new view, the relationships will allow for personal freedom on all levels. “Faithfulness” will come from one’s genuine heartfelt desire to be with you, rather than a legally imposed order – that as you may surmise, has not really worked in your societies anyway.

As you and your partners awaken on all levels, you will not be able to keep secrets from each other, because you will literally be able to read the other person’s mind.

So there will be a special level of intimacy that will be experienced as your genuine desires are both known, and respected.

During this transition, it is imperative that you learn how to verbally communicate anything that you may feel, so that it can be cleared up immediately.

Another area will be sexual preferences and desires. Certainly sex will continue to be most pleasurable, however, you may not feel the “need” for as much physical sex, however, when you DO have sex, it will be a sacred and spiritual merge, and quite powerful to say the least. The “power” will come from its purity. The passion will erupt, and you will engage in sacred sexuality that transcends they now typical “one night (empty) stand.”

Know that it will be and feel far more powerful and real than what has previously been the norm with respect to your experiences, which will make it that much more delightful. However, in some cases, you may not feel this “need” to merge on this more physical level, but when you desire to do so, expect it to be more powerful.

3. Why is this change taking place?

Because you are awakening to your spiritual nature, and as a result your physical experiences will evolve and awaken along with your spiritual experiences.

Once you grow and awaken on a certain level, you really cannot go backwards in your evolution or awakening.

All is motivated by pure love.

Being that your essence is pure love, you (as humanity) are awakening to your highest expression of Self, and are more consciously becoming one with Divine Source, so naturally as you become more conscious or awakened, your physical life, and relationships are naturally going to follow suit.

This is a positive awakening, and you did choose to come into this world of form to awaken on all levels, to know that you are not, nor could you ever be separated from Divine Source, so you will begin to experience more of a pure, unconditional love for all, equally, and transcend the view that “your partner” is more “special” than any other spiritual being.

As you awaken to this fact, ALL of your relationships become sacred, because you are all One.

4. How can I change my perspective to adjust to this new paradigm?

View every single being as if you are viewing yourself. Make no separation between “you” and “them” because there is no separation that is all within the erroneous thought system stemming from ego.

So as you act towards another, first before any action, or non-action, ask yourself just one question: Would I like it if this person behaved this way towards me?”

That is the ONLY question that you need to ask yourself, and this will spare you from much unnecessary discord, confusion, and it will certainly spare you from most of the pain you go through in the outmoded views that have been lodged within your cellular memory that you have carried over from lifetime to lifetime.

If you can remember to simply view each person, as if it were YOU, then you will adjust to this new paradigm, and you will find much more inner peace and joy with respect to all of your relations, with every sacred spiritual being on Earth.

5. What will happen if I make this adjustment?

You will come to know an inner and outer peace that you may have never experienced before. You will feel a sacred connection to all people, and will feel the oneness that you share with all of humanity, as you may have felt this shared sense of “oneness” with just one “special” person.

Now, you will feel this interaction with all people, and it will bring you a great deal of joy with respect to how you both relate to, and are treated by others.

Please realize that all “others” are truly a part of you.

It may take many to adjust to this new view, however, this is the next step into awakening to your Divine heritage while still in a physical life.

In truth, you are all One, so now you can play this out on the physical level, and marvel at the results that come from Love on every level of your life.

6. How are the roles between men and women changing now on the Spiritual level?

They are becoming more of a shared spiritual experience. They are beginning to be perceived as spiritual humanity, rather than “man and woman.”

This is the truth, and as all truth is eternal, you will come to find that as your views begin to evolve and awaken, the “war between the sexes” will cease.

You will look for common ground in your spiritual heritage, that will carry much more meaning than motives based on physical means to the ego’s trap of a perceived victory or end.

So you will slowly adjust and actually LOVE the awakened way much more so than they ways of old that were created by your egos.

As a result, you will feel much more inner peace, and the confusion that used to prevail in relationships will be transformed to a spiritual sacred shared experience, which will help you to experience the bliss and joy of Home, that is within your soul memory.

You will begin to feel “at home” again while in your physical life, and that feeling is one of PURE BLISS, heart-centered Joy, and Divine Love that will permeate every level of your life.

So as you awaken to this level, naturally the roles between men and women will transform to match your new awakening, and what a Joy that will be for you, and for all of humanity!

A Message from God, Source – Why There is Upheaval in Your Life

Tile-2-Ans-God

Through Barbara Rose, PhD

This update comes through me from God, Source, Creator, Spirit, All That Is, by whatever name you personally give to bring clarity, understanding and resolution in your life.

Greetings, Hello, Shalom, Salam, Namaste’, Dear Souls,

Many of you are experiencing internal and external upheaval in your life. For those who are, this update is for you and anyone who needs this.

Just at the point when the fabric of your existence, your reality seems to be crumbling before your eyes, many have been feeling deep grief, sadness, a sense of personal failure, and nervousness as what was once in place in what you called your life, is shifting, and you may have felt inner panic.

Why does the structure of your life and your reality crumble? Many of you ask this question. The answer is simple. What you see as upheaval in front of your eyes is actually uprooting that which is keeping you from living the true life you are here to live.

The ways of old that felt so comfortable must be transformed in order for you to move forward in the manner in which your deepest heart and soul desires to.

This means that what you have been afraid to face, it is now directly in front of you, unable to be ignored, so you can finally transform your fears, overcome your false perceptions of self, and honor who you are, now.

For the growth that you came into this life to make to be experienced within, all that is hindering your deepest growth now must come up to the surface. Although this may feel unpleasant, I am offering you a different perspective now. It is actually a gift. Yes, the personality does not like to feel out of control. The ego desires to validate self from external circumstances.

Your soul, on the other hand, validates itself for being, and experiencing alone. There is not a chance of your failing in this lifetime. How can you fail at growth? Your circumstances may be going through a remodeling so to speak, even if it is one that you are resisting with all of your ego’s might.

The fight and resistance is what is causing the emotional pain. If you knew to remind yourself that in order for the remodeling of your life to take place, the life you truly desire in your deepest heart, then the old structures will have to be removed.

I shall give you an analogy of a kitchen. If you have broken appliances, leaks, rotted wood, and shredding electrical wiring, is this what you truly desire? No, of course it is not. So in order for you to have the “kitchen of your dreams” the old must be removed so your appliances can be replaced. Leaks can be fully repaired. Rotted wood is pulled out and beautiful new cabinets take their place. The shredded electrical wiring is literally pulled out completely, and your kitchen is given brand new, safe wiring that will last beyond your natural life.

Dear Soul, what you may have been focusing on is how the parts of your life are being ripped out, thus panicking, or feeling deeply saddened. What you have not looked at is all that the old is being replaced with.

This is what I want you to see.

If you feel like a failure, for any reason, please shift your perception to one of being a learner. You are learning, not failing.

When you are saying, “No, No” as the old ways are no more, I ask you to say, “Yes, Yes” to the new realizations, self love, higher purpose, your deepest truth and all you have been wanting to experience as your purest essence of Self for eons, this time is finally here. It is one to celebrate.

Behind every great transformation in life, there was change from the old. Transformation is the opposite of stagnation. Either you desire brand new cabinets, or out of fear, you ask to hold on to rotted wooden ones. Your soul is drawing these experiences into your life because it is actually paving the way for you to grow, as you go with the flow, into your pure, authentic self.

As the dust settles, after you have fought, cried, pleaded, bargained, and resisted, in a short while you will be able to look back and say, “Yes, I needed the old ways to be removed so I could move into the place I am now, both inside and outside in my moment by moment life.”

Focus on what you would love to experience when you feel afraid.

Ask yourself if the upheaval serves you well, although it feels temporarily uncomfortable.

Dare to shine a light onto the path you have always yearned to travel from the inside out, and as you see the light shining on glimmering gems that are new opportunities, experiences, friendships, and inner freedom from emotional suffering and tyranny, you will be glad for the temporary upheaval. You will know that it was the only way all you truly desire could replace what you knew deep inside needed to be transformed.

You will very soon feel inner peace if you have been feeling internal chaos. Remind yourself that when the old falls away, including how you are viewing yourself, if your ego feels temporarily bruised, know that this is creating room for greater growth that far exceeds where you are now. Move in the direction that your heart is pulling you towards. You path ahead is a glorious, sublime, exciting and blissful experience, because it is actually the real you that you are now growing into.

You are loved eternally. Be Well and Trust. All is in Divine order.
