SHARING THE CELEBRATION
Awakening to Spiritual Partnership
Dear Spiritual Partner,  

   

River of Love I am so grateful for the many sharings I have received in celebration of my 70th birthday. They arrive daily from North America and around the world - Europe, South America, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, from young, middle-age, and elderly people, male and female. The flow of emails, video recordings, audio recordings, images, and poems is a river of love. It thrills me, and I love sharing it with you. Sharing a river of love, swimming in a river of love, and shaping your life into a river  of love are experiences of authentic power and creating it. The gifts of the heart that are flowing to me reflect the gifts of love that flow to each of us daily, moment by moment, lifetime by lifetime. In the new and unprecedented phase of our evolution that we have entered, love stands at stage center. Previously that position was occupied by survival. Our evolution now requires more than survival. Our fulfillment also now requires more. They both require love.

 

Love is abundant, but our experiences of it are sometimes scarce. In some cases, there is very little experience of it, but love is always there, like the sun shining above an overcast sky. Under the overcast, we see only gray. Above it, all is vibrant and colorful, clean and clear, unlimited and inviting. Creating authentic power is distinguishing between love and fear and choosing love, no matter what is happening inside you or around you. It is the purpose of your life, the path of your fulfillment, and the source of your joy, all in one. Fear is the overcast. Love is the unlimited and vibrant sky. Creating authentic power is recognizing when you are under an overcast and using your knowledge of clouds, sky, and sun to remember the sun and where it is. You do that when you are consumed with anger, jealousy, or resentment, and decide NOT to act on it. You do it when you are in the grip of an obsession (such as holding a grudge), a compulsion (such as workaholism), or an addiction (such overeating, smoking, gambling, or sex) and decide NOT to act on it.

 

When you deliberately choose to act instead from the healthiest part of your personality that you can, a part that is grateful, for example, or appreciative, patient, or content, the overcast no longer shapes your experiences. You reach for the sun, and the sun reaches back to you. You invoke healing, and the Universe responds. Even if the part of you reaches for health is very small, that is the part the Universe backs.

 

Sending your gifts of love to me is a choice of love. Sending your gifts of love to any one is a choice of love. Choosing to receive the love of others is also a choice of love. Choices of love are the only choices that can change your life, and only you can make them. I am grateful for your choices of love. I strive to make them also. Each time I do, I become a cocreator of a world based on the intentions of the soul - harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life - instead of a cocreator of a world based on fear - discord, competition, hoarding, and exploitation.

 

You can see your sharing on http://seatofthesoul.com/events-and-programs/garyis70/. You can also go there to enjoy being immersed in love. If you have not already sent a sharing, you can email it to garyis70@seatofthesoul.com. Please give us a week or so to post it.

 

The Seat of the Soul Institute will always support you in making choices of love.

 

Love,

 

Gary

NOTE FROM LINDALinda Francis 
 
SHARING THE CELEBRATION

I have been so delighted by the beautiful responses we have received from people all over this wonderful planet who have been appreciating Gary and celebrating his birthday with me. You have made this 70th birthday celebration so special, and I'm very grateful for you. What you're sharing with Gary, I'm letting deeply into my heart as well. I feel the love and gratitude I see in every sharing on Gary's birthday page as a gift to us all, because it reminds us of how much love we feel for everyone when we are aligned with our souls, and how connected we all are.

I have a story about Gary's sharing that I want to tell you. I met Gary in the summer of 1993 when I was 45 and he was 50. We discovered that our birthdays are one week a part. More than that, he is a Libra with Scorpio rising, I am a Scorpio with Libra rising, and we both have Aquarius moons. Those of you who know a little astrology - and I know only a little - might recognize how remarkable this is. The astrologer who did our charts as a gift for us was astonished.

 

By September I had moved to Mount Shasta where Gary lived. During our first October there together, Gary's friends planned a birthday party for him. Since I had arrived the month before, I knew very few people in the area. To my surprise and delight, Gary decided that he wanted the celebration of his birthday to be a celebration of both our birthdays! I was so touched. We called the week between his birthday on October 17 and mine on October 24 our Birthday Week. We have been celebrating our Birthday Week together ever since, and the celebration always lasts longer than a week.

 

It is such an honor for me to be in the Earth school with all of you. Thank you with all my heart.

 

Love,   

 

Linda
