Keys to Learning

What is learning first of all, so we know what we are doing? Simply stated learning is becoming aware of knowledge, information, or the acquisition of a skill previously unavailable to an individual. This is my own definition based on my level of understanding. Oneness dictates we are all using the same all knowing, omnipotent mind. Or are we? When born into this 3D realm of humanness our minds are veiled in the forgetting. “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts,…” (www.poets.org/) As Shakespeare points out our roles here are various, they are not who we are, and they are scripted. How we play these roles are up to the individual.

I don’t know about you, but I have never been good at Acting, however I play my pre-programmed roles brilliantly if I do say so myself. <G> These roles guide your path through life, because we tend to do things we are good at. What if you desired to change directions though and learn something totally new to you? Is anything totally new? Of course not, because we are still operating with the One Mind. The veil makes our skills and knowledge unique to us and the path we have traveled before. The saying goes, ‘Life’s lessons are provided on a need to know basis’ (my paraphrase). So this is the key to learning.  Learning is really re-membering!

Necessity is the mother of all invention and learning. Have you ever had to learn something you hated or were not interested in at all? For me this was math and boy was it a struggle! It took me years of practice and finally understanding that math was useful in the everyday world to learn it. I had several teachers share wonderful “tricks” that helped me re-member math. It took focus and a desire to learn to even get started and the more I learned the more I en-joyed it and the cycle repeated. Having studied education and learning for many years now I know from experience learning is a process. There are techniques which facilitate learning and these are spelled out nicely in books and websites. I encourage you to explore and if you seek, you shall find!

The point I make here summed up – Learning takes emotion, desire, intent and practice. The choice to learn is not up to anyone else. Most of all though it is driven by need, even if it is just an ego desire to learn a skill or knowledge for the fun of it. If you have no desire or need to learn something the actions you take will be futile. I have studied Spanish, for example, for years, however my efforts where half-hearted and not driven by desire. At times I could have used this skill but I found others to translate for me and since I don’t need it on a daily basis. I have not become proficient in Spanish. I suppose this goes for any manifesting one attempts, e-motion is required! Those things that come to you easily have been learned before in a previous lifetime or were pre-programmed for this one. I am still amazed at how easy Radiology was for me. It eventually became boring though after a quarter century and I moved on. This is how life works though, we are driven in certain directions (for me it was the path of least resistance) by forces unknown. To truly succeed one must trust this path and learn to listen to the Holy Spirit and not the Ego. Ah, but this is another blog. Blessings on your Journey of Love!

E-motion Pictures

We are human and this means we feel emotion.  E-motion, energy in motion….  Is this all we are? Of course not, but this what makes us unique in this world.  When a person is immature emotions often get the better of them and as they grow they learn to harness this energy and direct its flow.  It is a tool for deepening appreciation and understanding of life itself.  Would you be afraid of a hammer or a pencil?  Of course not, they are simply tools for expression… for creating.  Emotions are also this … a tool for creating, expressing, and appreciating.  Even though emotions are only one aspect of our being we must learn to respect this aspect and indeed embrace this gift of being human.

With all this being said, there is a wonderful creation we have made to honor, practice, and appreciate the emotions of mankind, The Motion Picture!  Today it comes in many forms from home video & webcam to TV & Movies.  There is no greater tool for learning and appreciating emotion than this medium of TV & Movies.  And let us remember in the beginning they were called Motion Pictures for a very simple reason.  In fact they are E-Motion in Pictures.  So if a movie or television show does not bring out your emotions, I posit it does not deserve to be viewed and that it has failed its purpose.  When I watch a show I use two markers for success, one being that the show makes me laugh, and the other is I feel the need to cry.  The tears may be of joy, but if you are not crying then you are not connecting to your emotional drivetrain.  The key word here is feeling.  The shows you watch should make you feel and the deeper the better!

Now that you are connected to your inner feelings we can move on to the positive and negative of emotion.  Does it matter which type you are feeling?  Of course it does!  Negative feelings are important to sort out and movies can really help you do this without the dire consequences of doing it in person.  Do you know what envy feels like?  How about jealousy?  These are powerful emotions and learning to deal with them constructively is a prerequisite for Spiritual growth and for living peacefully in this world.  Will you need to sort through these emotions in person? Yes and if you have a good understanding of them from watching movies the process is less harmful and more beneficial.  The same can be said for positive emotions like love and respect.

The Universe provides all you need to grow and prosper.  Movies are a valuable part of the process when used consciously.  Never fear your emotions, nor should you avoid feeling them.  Allow them to flow and you will be the better for it.  When you make this a conscious process more the better!  I bless you on your Journey of Love and happy viewing.
