"We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe.
All we have to do is listen -- feel and sense it with an open heart.
Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times,
it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane.
Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart."
~CJ Heck

"The Key to the Universe is Love, Together in a
Partnership with Awareness."

Robert Cosmar: Misplaced Values

I am often amazed at how easily people are influenced by the rich and famous. Like cattle, they are herded into the money-machine of society to beg and grovel for their own piece of the pie: success and fame. Little do they consider the great price that must often be paid for collecting more trinkets from the material world.

When I read the obituaries of many of the famous who pass on, it often says that they died of drug-related consequences. Instead of building an authentic image of themselves, they have been crafted or crafted themselves into an image that may be successful to the world, but inwardly they know it is a lie. In the end, they end up hating themselves and the life they have created.

Peace only comes when your heart and mind are centered within your being. Not until your mind surrenders to your feeling true nature does a sense of effortless acceptance rise from within and a recognition of the true self that you are. A beautiful life is one that is full of this awareness, because it brings the divine aspect of our natures into the mundane world of our minds and, thus into this world and life. You are not successful if you don’t have peace of mind and a heart filled with love.

Love can only exist within you if you are totally accepting of your circumstances. It is not a crime to be rich or poor, but it is a crime against the sacred part of you to be a lie to yourself. I am sure that there are those who have created wealth and fame from a love and a purposefulness within themselves, but what part of the ego influenced their choices and how pure were their intents? Only they know in the privacy of their lives. The end justifies the means, but at what cost to the quality of life and living?

Do not confuse happiness, joy, peace and abundance with things. They are things, and things only create a temporary euphoria that passes with time and space. Only the eternal values within the heart have the power to last, when all hope of being rich and famous is extinguished by the advances of age, disintegration of health, and the realization of knowing you might have been chasing dreams that belonged to others and not your very own.

The only lasting values are those we discover within ourselves, because they are the values we are born with and that makes them a part of the DNA of the universe and beyond.
