September contains a number of both positive and negative themes. They are meant to teach us to grow in peace. Whenever something is negative we are called to realize that we could have peace instead of what’s happening. If we keep choosing peace then it removes layer after layer of illusions and by healing them we find the peace and wisdom that awaits us within us.
This month the Buddha’s influence is very strong. He realized that it was our mind alone that creates everything and that it is we who are dreaming the dream of our life. The more peace we attain through meditation and forgiveness the more it allows the peace and wisdom that is part of our primordial mind to come up in place of our misery. What the Buddha realized is that all pain comes from attachment. It is the holding on that is an attempt to take the place of bonding. And only bonding brings success, intimacy, ease and flow. Everything we try to get from outside of us will lead to disillusionment and shattered dreams. Rumi said it well:
There is a basket of fresh bread on your head, yet you go door to door asking for crusts.
September is a month of cumulative effect. All the unfinished business of the year wants to crowd in to this month to be healed. If you are on the path of healing, which would save you from so very many problems, you are not dismayed when the next problem comes up. You could have peace instead of pain. It’s just the next thing to heal and as it states in A Course in Miracles, simply be at peace and trust in Christ. If we work at what is still unfinished the year can end in a new paradigm full of the abundance of life. This year is meant to be a birth year, a leap forward. We are meant to reach a new plateau to go beyond any gloom that September may bring. Your sad outlook on life is just the gloom personalities of your ego darkly coloring your perspective. Neither Heaven nor your true self gain by dark glamor and negativity. That comes only from your ego, which wants control of your mind and your life.
This month your heart can lose the heaviness and hardness it has encased itself with. As letting go occurs you find yourself in a wonderful flow that brings the treasures that are waiting in your own heart for you to heal. Let all your dreams be healing dreams. Scarcity is your excuse about your purpose. Gloom is your dark glamor; it is the opposite of you letting go or forgiving. Jewels of beauty, abundance and even transcendence await you this month if you are dedicated to healing. You are meant to raise your standards in every area of your life.
You are the child of Heaven Itself and deserve every good thing. Love yourself and let yourself be loved because this is what will uplift and heal you. You can’t love and have a grievance at the same time. A grievance speaks of old guilt pinned on another blaming them for thwarting you from getting what you want outside yourself. If you examined those situations elucidating the deceptions of your subconscious you would see that bonding and only bonding is true. You would also see that where you suffered and separated you used a painful event where someone needed your help as a way to become independent. While this allowed you to do things your way it only led to the pain of being a victim. Instead choose love, truth and letting go. Heaven is always available to help you if you open yourself. Real prayer is spending time with the Source. Forgive whomever you need to forgive and let God hold you, His precious Child. Give yourself to September and let it be as remarkable as it can be.
