Expressing Love and Compassion - December 2014
I just came across something I had printed off awhile ago with the title ‘A Synopsis of Bashar’s Basic Message.’ Bashar is a multi-dimensional being channeled through Darryl Anka. The sentence that caught my attention was:
“You are loved so unconditionally by Creation that you can even choose to believe that you are not loved.”
That spoke volumes to me about our human condition and how inhumane we can be to ourselves and others. So many of us have deep wounds of our soul that we have brought in with us from many past lives. These core issues often profoundly affect us in this lifetime. Many of our core issues relate to being unloved, unworthy, inadequate, deserted, unimportant, and the list goes on.
We are not even conscious of how deeply buried these themes are. We have had lifetimes of programming and conditioning that taught us to put our needs last and it was preferable to sacrifice and suffer. This was used to keep control of us and not allow the expression of true love and compassion, which is only available to us when we are able to love ourselves first. When we love ourselves, we naturally take care of our needs and have a life of balance, and fulfillment on all levels. There is no critical judgment of others but rather empathy and compassion.
At this present time in our evolution it is not appropriate or of service to ourselves, our loved ones or our planet, to come from martyrdom and self-sacrifice. The gold stars are instead awarded now to those who come from their heart, loving and accepting themselves and others, and able to express that love and acceptance freely without strings or attachments.
My understanding is that many of the children being born at this time are not incarnating with the heavy duty karma that the previous generations have brought in to resolve. Thank goodness! Many of the newer children are role models for us in embodying and expressing love and compassion, sorely needed in these times of extreme polarities.
Gregg Braden from his book Walking Between The Worlds states “Our own science now has demonstrated that your DNA is directly tied to your ability to forgive, allow and love through the expression of your life. The science of compassion, loving, forgiving and allowing is nothing new. It is an ancient as well as universal science.” Look at areas of your life and question where you can demonstrate more love and compassion for yourself that will ultimately emanate to others.
If you are a parent, you might choose to get a babysitter more often and do something you love to do, or work fewer hours, or take that dream vacation now instead of waiting for enough money, time or whatever other excuse you use to put it off. I remember years ago as a single mother of 2 working for a communications company, when I found out I was getting laid off. I had already booked a trip with my kids to go to Disneyland for the first time and a Caribbean cruise with a girlfriend shortly afterwards. At that time I still had my poverty consciousness issues and really struggled with allowing myself to go on one let alone both of those trips. In the end, I did decide to go on both trips and have never regretted it. My kids and I have some of our fondest memories together from our trip to Disneyland.
One of my survival behaviours has been to strive to accomplish more and more. One of the deep core issues I brought in was that I was deserted and have therefore felt unsupported. To be able to heal and release this issue in this lifetime, I co-created the perfect karmic family and relationships to demonstrate that to me.
At age 53 I am finally making headway on resolving this core issue, knowing that my support comes from within so I don’t need that mirrored back to me any longer. What can you do today to express love and compassion to yourself? Are you out of balance with too much ‘doing’ and ‘striving’ or the opposite of avoiding, procrastination or hiding? Do you treat yourself with love and compassion or constant thoughts of self-criticism? Know that you deserve love, understanding, forgiveness and compassion and that you are loved and supported beyond measure.

|Food Sources of B Vitamins|
|B vitamins are required for energy metabolism. Good sources for most B vitamins include whole grain products such as whole wheat pasta, and whole grain breads and cereals. These foods also provide plenty of fiber and other essential nutrients. An exception is vitamin B12. It is not found in whole grains, vegetables or fruits. It is found in meat, eggs and dairy products. Thus vegetarians, as well as adults over age 50 (who may not absorb vitamin B 12 well), may benefit from foods fortified with B12. |

|Fresh Cherry Crisp|
Description: What says summer more than cherries?
A fruit crisp offers the luscious flavor of a fresh fruit pie without the fuss of making a crust. Celebrate the arrival of cherries with this rich-tasting crisp. The nut-studded topping works great with other fruit combinations too.
This is a delicious cherry crisp made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product.
The nutritional benefits of cherries are pretty big, particularly when you consider their small size. Many of the health benefits of cherries are related to the natural chemical that gives them their color.
Anthocyanins give flowers, berries and other fruits the colors ranging from red to blue. Some of the best food sources of anthocyanins are red grapes, chokeberry, eggplant and, of course, cherries.
These pigments attract pollinators, act as a “sunscreen” and protect the plant from radicals formed by UV light, so they act as antioxidants. The antioxidant benefits are transferred to people when the fruits or vegetables are eaten.
Anthocyanins are also natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. They inhibit the production of COX-2 enzymes, as do over the counter and prescription pain relievers. Natural anti-inflammatories are believed to reduce the risk of many types of cancer. But, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.
Cherries contain melatonin, another natural pain reliever and COX-2 inhibitor. Melatonin also helps to regulate sleep cycles and has been sold as a natural sleep aid. Reduced levels of melatonin have been associated with heart disease and increased cancer rates in night workers. The human body naturally produces melatonin, but primarily in darkness.
Constant artificial lighting present in most homes and work places reduces the amount of melatonin that the body produces. So, one of the health benefits of cherries to modern day man has to do with replacing some of the melatonin that has been lost to artificial light, unhealthy work schedules and unnatural sleep patterns. And, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.
Cherries, like most fruits, contain vitamin C. The proven and suspected health benefits of cherries and other vitamin C rich foods are too numerous to be covered in this recipe.
