Who Cares?  The Sacred Heart Cares #whocares #caring #SacredHeart

So often in life we may feel as though no one cares about us, or that no one understands, or that no one can really feel the way we feel, and no one care about us the way we wish someone/life/the Universe or God would care.Angel Carol by Shauna Nourha

When we think and feel this way, we are thinking and feeling from a place of separation.  The ego sees us as separate from God and from one another.  The soul is One.  We are always connected with each other on the soul level, and we are always One with God in the aspect of our soul.

Recently, it came to me that, when I am caring for myself, because the Divine and I are One, then God is caring for me as well.  It is literally impossible for us to care about ourselves without that also being God caring about us, for the aspect that cares is God.  Even the aspect in us that cares is the Divine, because it is our soul that cares.

Caring is an essential quality of the Divine Self.  Caring, as an energy-intention, is a divine quality permeating the Universe with its potential for realization in any and every moment. Divine caring is what is called, in the Catholic Tradition, the Sacred Heart of God.  The most sacred caring is not the casual, “Oh, sure, I care,” but the deep caring of Soul to Soul.

Caring is essential for life, and essential in life.  Without caring, life becomes impossible.  Caring might be called the essential heart of life, for caring creates life, caring nurtures life, caring gets up and tries again and works hard to ensure there is enough of what we need for life.

As we open ourselves to embodying the Sacred Heart of God, or deep, soul-felt caring, we find that we must also care about others at a deeper level, even a committed level.

For as we open ourselves to the energy of caring, we discover that indeed, the soul of each and every human being is connected with the Divine, and is connected with our own inner soul essence.

To see this level of each other, we must look beyond ego to see the other’s soul.  When we see another person’s soul, it is only good.  All of the negativity that we believe we see in others is either a projection of our own ego self, or a projection of their own ego self, or a combination of both.

When we see others as souls who are also an expression of the One Divine Self, we must love them and care about them, for not to love them is not to love and care about God.

I know how hard this can be.  I occasionally try to force myself to look for God in some public figures, whether media figures or politicians, who don’t seem to be showing me who God is, yet I believe and trust that God is in them.

In personal relationships, I am aware that I used to be so focused on asking for what I need and wanting my feelings to count, that I was not also focused on caring about the other person.  The reason was that I grew up feeling as though my feelings never mattered, but the truth is that the only way we can heal and move past such issues from our past is to begin to practice caring about others in each and every interaction.

The Sacred Heart of God naturally cares about everyone and what everyone needs in each and every moment.  May we all pray and meditate on becoming One with the Sacred Heart of God.

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
