While attempting to write this entry for today, the second day of our Love Quest, there’s been a whirlwind of life swirling in to delay, well, everything. Please forgive the lateness of this post.
So what is an addiction? It is anything from your physical life that seems to have the upper hand. It is a physical process, being addicted. Those parts of us that are expressed non-physically have no addictions. It could even be said that without them (addictions), this 3D world as we know it to be, would cease to exist.
The movie “What the Bleep do we know?” illustrates this well, here. Perhaps addictions could be re-labelled “internally wired expectations that initiate repetitive action”. They are different for everyone.
You will see what you expect to see and respond accordingly; every bit of it as a function of your point of view.
An addiction to life and a bedroom floor to step on in the morning serves me. An addiction to sadness or fear – not so much. Both are “natural” in that the recognition of them is routine. I expect to wake up each morning after sleeping all night. This feels normal. If I expect to be broke if I lose my job – that feels normal too. Lots of people would expect the same. Yet it does not serve me. It is merely my choice. I will see what I believe is there, what I think is possible, what I expect. Everytime. This “broke” expectation is merely a decision. I can choose again.
The addiction scenario is our human journey. With awareness of Quantum Physics and our non- physical selves, we realize there is more control than we’ve been taught. Habits of emotion are not written in stone, they are “internally wired expectations that initiate repetitive action”.
You can be addicted to happiness, and no matter what your boss, your mother, or your lover says – the addiction will take over. You can be addicted to worry, and regardless of your income, health or current love life – you will fret.
We don’t know each other, you and I. Not so that I’d recognize you on the street. Yet I’m willing to bet that along with your addiction to living, you harbor habits that don’t serve you.
The key to recognizing them is in how you feel. A familiar set of emotional angst is a sure sign that an addiction has kicked in.
Just notice. This is part of you. It is not to be rejected. Eventually, it’s to be absorbed into a you with another set of habits. For now, just define it. Decide what you’d rather be addicted to.
How about happiness? Laughter? Joy? Expansion? Compassion? Hope? Fulfillment? Love? Abundance? Enthusiasm? Self-love – how about that?
On this spiral journey, the same information is understood on another level. We’ve talked about forgiving ourselves before. This time, consider that the thought grows beyond saying “I’m okay” into “I see all of me and I love me – yet this thought inhibits my power so I’ll have to find another one, and I will.”
Just rest there; accepting every nuance of what makes you – you. There is no one who can do so but you. Every thought, habit and action has helped create your current perfection. That perfect one is you.
You’ve come here to demonstrate creation. A key ingredient is agape. Love yourself without reservation; enjoy your exuberance! A god is without doubt, guilt or hesitation. You are a human extension of source energy, a god being human.
You are the god you’ve been waiting for.
I’ll see you tomorrow!

This is not a Quest I imagined. It is a trip already taken, a beginning. This is a spiral journey – once you “arrive” you see other destinations through the window. These are places you must now go. There is no turning back. There is only a returning.
Each path taken brings you deeper into truth; each step closer not to an end, but to another start. We are starting over.
How this looks through human eyes can be disorienting. Logically, as we’ve been taking these Quests since 2011, and alive much longer than that, it would seem that we’d “get it” by now. Life is not meant to be logical.
I’m compiling posts from these Quests for a book, and reading some from the beginning. I’ve changed and grown a great deal since then. Yet today, as we begin another, I find myself at a brand new door. This is not by chance. It is by intent.
We “get” now that life does not happen to us. Life is only possible because of us. There is this great quote from a book I am re-reading, “The Vortex” by Esther and Jerry Hicks:
“Before your physical birth…you experienced no discernible “relationship” between you and Source. You were Source. While you are focused here… the eternal, non-physical…larger part of you remains non-physically focused. There is an eternal, undeniable relationship between those 2 important aspects of you.”
We are gods in physical form. That much we know. Yet again, we are challenged with non-productive thoughts and activities. So what gives? Why do we look to each other and to a host of teachers to lift us up for a minute or a few hours or days? How come we don’t remain “lifted?”
The answer as I’ve recently come to “grock” is found in emotional addictions. This is not a popular concept, yet is has become a knowing for me, not only intellectually but deeply. This Quest will not be an exploration of why humans are addictive; it will be my understanding of how they work.
Addictions are the reason for these Quests. Your ego is the voice of your addictions.
The trick to a satisfying journey is in choosing addictions that you find enjoyable and stimulating. This Quest begins with a discovering of the unsatisfying ones.
Addict is defied “to give oneself up to some strong habit” by Webster. I like that, “to give oneself up”. Even Webster knew – you are not your ego. Your ego is a voice for a choice you’ve made – an addictive habitual choice.
The word addiction has become hard wired to drugs and alcohol. We don’t think of emotional reactions as being hard wired. Yet we walk through our days without full on happiness or joyous engagement. We experience sad, mad, frustrated or anxious again and again and again. We “blame” the media, person, illness, mirror or bank account for these emotions.
This is not a call to blame you instead. That would merely add you to the things you are finding fault with. This is merely exploration.
You see, after many years and journeys, I have a better understanding of how life works. Even with all that knowing, old, repetitive patterns of sadness and fear now envelop me. They snuck in a while back, I’m not sure when. Here’s the thing about them and all addictions – they feel familiar. They are US. We recognize them and therefore let them in with wide open arms. Unlike a drink or a needle, these addictions are barely recognizable. I only just now have acknowledged I was “off the wagon”. It’s been months of confusion. Wow.
The Quest this week will again be intensely personal. It will be a working through another level of uncovering love, coming from a new perspective. You see, we like our addictions. This is why they are so hard to find. What started as a thought has grown into an emotion. This emotion creates a chemical cocktail that my/your brain craves. The longer you feed it, the more it takes to satisfy that need. This is how emotional addictions become every bit as powerful as substance addictions.
It’s time to stop the supply. We came to embody love in physical form. If anyone can do this, it is us.
We are the love we’ve been waiting for.
Thank you for taking this journey.

A short update on the energies
February 17, 2015
As many of you have noticed already, the heightened anticipation that is announcing the arrival of these new frequencies will make their voices heard in many ways. For some, the irritation it causes may feel like an itch you cannot scratch, because the vibrations themselves will set off reactions in your body that can be likened to an indefinable irritation that you do not know where it stems from, but that will cause your attention to be drawn to it anyway. For others, you will feel the highs of an euphoric uplift that may suddenly be replaced by an unexpected low, one that will cause your mind to cast about trying to find an explanation for this sudden dip in emotional temperature, but it will be an explanation it will fail to find for there will be no identifiable cause for it anyway. Nevertheless, your mind will likely find a hook to latch on to, something that is already there, and it will try its hardest to make it loom even bigger in your thoughts. In other words, this is a period of much fluctuation and of much fabrication of thoughts and ideas that are merely figments of your imagination, blown out of proportion by the advent of these new frequencies. For as we have already told you, the forerunners of these emissaries are already here, and what they signal to you, will set so much astir within with this mere whisper of the magnitude of this incoming flow of light, it is apt to once again trigger a whole host of false alarms within so many of you.
For as you are already well versed in by now, the human psyche has been well adapted to the old idea of shunning change at all cost, and now, as these incoming missives of that exact message are already beginning to be noticed by your own inherent alarm system that is yet to be fully deactivated, it will cause quite a stir in so many of you. For some, it will be like a veritable avalanche of alarm bells going off left, right and center at the same time, and so, you may be apt to go into panic mode. Be that as it may, we are once again here to remind you all that these procedures will always cause a whole host of side effects when they arrive, and so, our role is once again to remind you that all of this noise is simply a signal of the beneficial effects that these emissaries actually will have. For they bring on change in every way you can think of, and the change they bring with them is always one that is initiated by the light quotient that they carry with them. And this time, you can expect another record breaking event to occur, as this round of enlightenment not only builds upon every single one that has come your way before, it will also bring you all to a very new level of energetic transformation yet again.
