I Can't Remember A Time I Wasn't...

Updated on April 3, 2013

"You are either the creator or the clean-up crew."

Lela Hayes

What People Say

Many of the things I have read and heard in my life have inspired me. I have found that being a person requires much attendance and reading something inspirational gives me a boost towards being a better person. Today, in my part of the world, we are celebrating Easter. I really appreciate the path Christ walked to be the teacher he was.

My husband and I went to a church called Unity of Boulder on this Easter as we have on many Sundays past. On this particular Easter the Unity Choir, directed by Norma Bigtree Groverland, performed what I would truly report was life-changing music and theatre. The imagination it took her to see this service and actually manifest it is mind-boggling, but I saw, heard and felt it and I came away much better than I was.

This service brings a depth to God that I did not know about before this. I found out that God wants us to be our best, but something else I learned is that God doesn't judge us for it if we're not. It is we who judge ourselves and then we judge others and then we find them guilty. I did an experiment on this for the last week. I listened to what I was saying about other people and it surprised me how often I was judging them in my mind. Without a blink they were guilty. I did this experiment because I took a course called "Course In Miracles" a few years ago and I read parts of the text again in different places from time to time. One passage I read said (in my interpretation) if you really want peace then stop judging. I realized I was guilty and I was judging. Early this year in my New year's message I said my commitment to EVERYONE is to love you and stop judging you so I wanted to see how I was doing on my promise.

What I really wanted to know was whether I was fit to be Empress of the Universe or not. Well, the plus side is if I judge you and find you guilty, I will forgive you immediately. I am prone to enjoying telling people what to do, but I think I am a pretty good candidate for Empress because I don't care whether anyone does it or not. I have made this commitment to love you and to forgive you and to not judge you. I don't know how many other people you know who will commit to giving you this, but if it helps you, every once in a while I will write an article and I promise to make it as joyful, uplifting, and inisghtful as I can. When I say that it makes my life better for you to have the best life possible, I really mean it.

As I said,"I can't remember a time I wasn't", so as far as I can tell, regardless of what is happening right now, I am a common denominator because I can't remember a time I wasn't here. This leads me to believe that the light is approching, because I am starting to see where I could not, in the past. I have mentioned before that I would be running for Empress of the Universe sometime soon and, well, the time is here. In the comments section, just say a yes or no on the Empress thing and we'll count them up when it is over. Don't fail to cast your vote.

The story to this thing about being the empress is explained in the article (link below) I wrote called, "I Bow To My Higher Self". I do love you and I'm not judging you.

      Lela,

      You are such a sweetheart. Your true nature shines for all of us to gaze into the lens of self and possibilities. Some will revel in the beauty, while others fear to see their own true magnificence. Thank you for sharing your beauty and grace dear one...And I am honored and humbled in the reflection of who you are, who I am and who we are becoming in our journey of life.

      Blessings in love and light

      Ellen

      Bravo Lela,

      Your prose comes from a place of authenticity and awareness. Judgements, intolerance or indifference arises from fear. Every human being we come into contact with, be that good, bad or indifferent (human concepts) is a mirror reflection of ourselves. More often than not, the individuals we try to avoid, is in fact the aspects of ourselves we simply do not wish to address and look at. What a wonderful opportunity to bring to the surface any conflicting concept toward each other, and look at each human as the Divine they truly are. No matter where they are in their own evolution..

      Blessings and hugs

      Ellen

      Hi Frog,

      Thank you for your insightful comment. My being the Empress is my attempt at humor which I assume your being the Frog Prince is as well. I don't see the harm in this type of satire so I will respectfully decline your request to let it go. My family and friends kid with me about it often and it is a source of laughter and joy for us all.

      I see the judgement that we all carry around as being the barrier between one another. As I said in the article, it surprised me that I was evaluating everything in my mind all the time and coming up with a charge of guilty so often. It takes a great deal of awareness to be tolerant and kind to one another and it really is time for the people of this world to bring their awareness to this acceptance, because like it or not we are all connected and what affects one affects us all ultimately. It's good to hear from you again.

      Blessings,

      Lela

      My God is a loving and forgiving Creator. The whole concept of fire and brimstone and eternal damnation is meant to be a fear tactic in my mind. Your Creator gave you free will to make choices. Remember that while making them. Very insightful piece of writing.

      Empress? Let that idea go. Just be you.

      Hi aviannovice,

      I hope you enjoyed my humor. I know I enjoy yours. I love the birds, too, but because I feed them every day, I think their judgement is that I don't give them enough food and I don't get it out as early as they would like. Thank you for stopping by to read this. I have gotten behind on the articles you have published, but I'll catch up soon. You're the best!

      Blessings,

      Lela

      There is sometimes too much human in humanity. I think that's why I prefer to be around the birds so much, as I see them for what they are. Sadly, they judge me as a human...

      Dearest Favorite Nephew,

      I love that I have you in my life and every word from you brings me great joy. Thank you so much for reading this piece and thank you for the positive vote. Once I become Empress, I will make all things right, but for now, I will bring as much joy and light to the world as I can possibly find.

      Hi Ellen,

      Thank you for your kind and insightful comment. As you can see this is kind of a quirky piece, but I have a sense of humor about life and sometimes I just like to show a little of it in my articles. You are such a wonderful person and I am so glad we have found each other here on Hubpages. You are a truly dear person, too. Thank you for the light you bring to us all.

      Blessings,

      Lela

      Excellent. Indeed judgement is a human concept. Divine does not sit on a throne with a pad and paper judging the choices we are making. We has humans will be the final judge of our lives and the lessons we integrated while on this earthly plane.

      Blessed Easter to you and yours dear one. Thank you for sharing this amazing experience.
