Once upon a time.

I was sent this today with no reference to where it is from ... yet it FEELS like it is from one of Neale Donald Walsch's children's books.
It is rather beautiful and I feel many adults will benefit from it also. Quite long but worth the read.

Once upon no time, there was a little Soul who said to God, "I know who I am."

And God said, "That's wonderful! Who are you?"

And the Little Soul shouted, "I'm the Light!"

God smiled a big smile. "That's right!" God exclaimed. "You are the Light."

The Little Soul was so happy, for it had figured out what all the souls in the Kingdom were there to figure out.

"Wow," said the Little Soul, "this is really cool!"

But soon, knowing who it was was not enough. The Little Soul felt stirrings inside, and now wanted to be who it was. And so the Little Soul went back to God (which is not a bad idea for all souls who want to be Who They Really Are) and said,

"Hi, God! Now that I know Who I am, is it okay for me to be it?"

And God said, "You mean you want to be Who You Already Are?"

"Well," replied the Little Soul," it's one thing to know Who I Am, and another thing altogether to actually be it. I want to feel what it's like to be the Light!"

"But you already are the Light," God repeated, smiling again.

"Yes, but I want to see what that feels like!" cried the Little Soul.

"Well," said God with a chuckle, "I suppose I should have known. You always were the adventuresome one."

Then God's expression changed. "There's only one thing..."

"What?" asked the Little Soul.

"Well, there is nothing else but the Light. You see, I created nothing but what you are; and so, there is no easy way for you to experience yourself as Who You Are, since there is nothing that you are not."

"Huh?" said the Little Soul, who was now a little confused.

"Think of it this way," said God. "You are like a candle in the Sun. Oh, you're there all right. Along with a million, gazillion other candles who make up the Sun. And the sun would not be the Sun without you. Nay, it would be a sun without one of its candles...and that would not be the Sun at all; for it would not shine as brightly. Yet, how to know yourself as the Light when you are amidst the Light -that is the question."

"Well," the Little Soul perked up, "you're God. Think of something!"

Once more God smiled. "I already have," God said. "Since you cannot see yourself as the Light when you are in the Light, we'll surround you with darkness."

"What's darkness?" the Little Soul asked.

God replied, "It is that which you are not."

"Will I be afraid of the dark?" cried the Little Soul.

"Only if you choose to be," God answered. "There is nothing, really, to be afraid of, unless you decide that there is. You see, we are making it all up. We are pretending."

"Oh," said the Little Soul, and felt better already.

Then God explained that, in order to experience anything at all, the exact opposite of it will appear. "It is a great gift," God said, "because without it, you could not know what anything is like. You could not know Warm without Cold, Up without Down, Fast without Slow. You could not know Left without Right, Here without There, Now without Then."

"And so," God concluded, "when you are surrounded with darkness, do not shake your fist and raise your voice and curse the darkness. Rather be a Light unto the darkness, and don't be mad about it. Then you will know Who You Really Are, and all others will know, too. Let your Light shine so that everyone will know how special you are!"

"You mean it's okay to let others see how special I am?" asked the Little Soul.

"Of course!" God chuckled. "It's very okay! But remember,'special' does not mean 'better.' Everybody is special, each in their own way! Yet many others have forgotten that. They will see that it is okay for them to be special only when you see that it is okay for you to be special."

"Wow," said the Little Soul, dancing and skipping and laughing and jumping with joy. "I can be as special as I want to be!"

"Yes, and you can start right now," said God, who was dancing and skipping and laughing right along with the Little Soul.

"What part of special do you want to be?"

"What part of special?" the Little Soul repeated. "I don't understand."

"Well," God explained, "being the Light is being special, and being special has a lot of parts to it. It is special to be kind. It is special to be gentle. It is special to be creative. It is special to be patient. Can you think of any other ways it is special to be?"

The Little Soul sat quietly for a moment. "I can think of lots of ways to be special!" the Little Soul then exclaimed. "It is special to be helpful. It is special to be sharing. It is special to be friendly. It is special to be considerate of others!"

"Yes!" God agreed, "and you can be all of those things, or any part of special you wish to be, at any moment. That's what it means to be the Light."

"I know what I want to be, I know what I want to be!" the Little Soul announced with great excitement. "I want to be the part of special called 'forgiving'. Isn't it special to be forgiving?"

"Oh, yes," God assured the Little Soul. "That is very special."

"Okay," said the Little Soul. "That's what I want to be. I want to be forgiving. I want to experience myself as that."

"Good," said God, "but there's one thing you should know."

The Little Soul was becoming a bit impatient now. It always seemed as though there were some complication.

"What is it?" the Little Soul sighed.

"There is no one to forgive."

"No one?" The Little Soul could hardly believe what had been said.

"No one!" God repeated. "Everything I have made is perfect. There is not a single soul in all creation less perfect than you. Look around you."

It was then that the Little Soul realized a large crowd had gathered. Souls had come from far and wide ~ from all over the Kingdom ~ for the word had gone forth that the Little Soul was having this extraordinary conversation with God, and everyone wanted to hear what they were saying. Looking at the countless other souls gathered there, the Little Soul had to agree. None appeared less wonderful, less magnificent, or less perfect than the Little Soul itself. Such was the wonder of the souls gathered around, and so bright was their Light, that the Little Soul could scarcely gaze upon them.

"Who, then, to forgive?" asked God.

"Boy, this is going to be no fun at all!" grumbled the Little Soul. "I wanted to experience myself as One Who Forgives. I wanted to know what that part of special felt like."

And the Little Soul learned what it must feel like to be sad. But just then a Friendly Soul stepped forward from the crowd.

"Not to worry, Little Soul," the Friendly Soul said, "I will help you."

"You will?" the Little Soul brightened. "But what can you do?"

"Why, I can give you someone to forgive!"

"You can?"

"Certainly!" chirped the Friendly Soul. "I can come into your next lifetime and do something for you to forgive."

"But why? Why would you do that?" the Little Soul asked. "You, who are a Being of such utter perfection! You, who vibrate with such a speed that it creates a Light so bright that I can hardly gaze upon you! What could cause you to want to slow down your vibration to such a speed that your bright Light would become dark and dense? What could cause you ~ who are so light that you dance upon the stars and move through the Kingdom with the speed of your thought--to come into my life and make yourself so heavy that you could do this bad thing?"

"Simple," the Friendly Soul said. "I would do it because I love you."

The Little Soul seemed surprised at the answer.

"Don't be so amazed," said the Friendly Soul, "you have done the same thing for me. Don't you remember? Oh, we have danced together, you and I, many times. Through the eons and across all the ages have we danced. Across all time and in many places have we played together. You just don't remember."

"We have both been All Of It. We have been the Up and the Down of it, the Left and the Right of it. We have been the Here and the There of it, the Now and the Then of it. We have been the male and the female, the good and the bad; we have both been the victim and the villain of it."

"Thus have we come together, you and I, many times before; each bringing to the other the exact and perfect opportunity to Express and to Experience Who We Really Are. And so," the Friendly Soul explained further, "I will come into your next lifetime and be the 'bad one' this time. I will do something really terrible, and then you can experience yourself as the One Who Forgives.

"But what will you do?" the Little Soul asked, just a little nervously, "that will be so terrible?"

"Oh," replied the Friendly Soul with a twinkle, "we'll think of something."

Then the Friendly Soul seemed to turn serious, and said in a quiet voice, "You are right about one thing, you know."

"What is that?" the Little Soul wanted to know.

"I will have to slow down my vibration and become very heavy to do this not-so-nice thing. I will have to pretend to be something very unlike myself. And so, I have but one favour to ask of you in return."

"Oh, anything, anything!" cried the Little Soul, and began to dance and sing, "I get to be forgiving, I get to be forgiving!"

Then the Little Soul saw that the Friendly Soul was remaining very quiet.

"What is it?" the Little Soul asked. "What can I do for you? You are such an angel to be willing to do this for me!"

"Of course this Friendly Soul is an angel!" God interrupted. "Everyone is! Always remember: I have sent you nothing but angels."

And so the Little Soul wanted more than ever to grant the Friendly Soul's request. "What can I do for you?" the Little Soul asked again.

"In the moment that I strike you and smite you," the Friendly Soul replied, "in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could possible imagine ~ in that very moment..."

"Yes?" the Little Soul interrupted, "yes...?""Remember Who I Really Am."

"Oh, I will!" cried the Little Soul, "I promise! I will always remember you as I see you right here, right now!"

"Good," said the Friendly Soul, "because, you see, I will have been pretending so hard, I will have forgotten myself. And if you do not remember me as I really am, I may not be able to remember for a very long time. And if I forget Who I Am, you may even forget Who You Are, and we will both be lost. Then we will need another soul to come along and remind us both of Who We Are."

"No, we won't!" the Little Soul promised again. "I will remember you! And I will thank you for bringing me this gift ~ the chance to experience myself as Who I Am.

" And so, the agreement was made. And the Little Soul went forth into a new lifetime, excited to be the Light, which was very special, and excited to be that part of special called Forgiveness.

And the Little Soul waited anxiously to be able to experience itself as Forgiveness, and to thank whatever other soul made it possible. And at all the moments in that new lifetime, whenever a new soul appeared on the scene, whether that new soul brought joy or sadness--and especially if it brought sadness--the Little Soul thought of what God had said.

"Always remember," God had smiled, "I have sent you nothing but angels."

Have a Golden Rayish kinda weekend ... remembering it is the Concious Convergence. July 17th & 18th (should you care to google it)

Love Light and Laughter of course

Thank you for this wonderful story! I´m an actress living in Sweden. I have been guided by the angels to do a monolog. (They also guided me to your website) Some weeks ago they told me that the theme in the monolog should be about "beeing yourself" And that´s just what this story is all about! To be the light that we are. Thank you once again! With Love and Light/ Annika

Beautiful :) I posted it to my facebook wall so others can enjoy the story and smile and just be :)

Andrew said...

Lovely story...it made things much clearer for me. Here's a good video I found. It's the final part of a 10 part documentary...but I think it sums up things nicely.

Ah thanks Blossom for the channel tonight, I have often said those very words "I MISS YOU" and I then think well that is it then, if I miss them then there is a recognition of who they are,they are a part of me, that part that I know is deep within me just waiting to come out and shine!I have thought what is it that I miss? what is in these words that touch my heart so?Do the words remind me of home? a lady said to me do they feel anything for us? can they feel? and yes can you imagine my reply, the love I feel that has come to me at times bring tears to my eyes, it is so beautiful and I spend my days waiting to feel that again and yet are they not simply reflecting the love that we are back at us?If they are an example of what we can be like when fear is no longer dominant aren't we amazing!

… we indeed are overcome with emotion at times (although many of you believe us not to have such a thing.) The beauty that is brought forth from the depths of Love within the soul into creations for another to purvey is indeed a human quality that thrills. It Lightens your planet. And accomplishments? Of course. We often find ourselves like proud parents. The bravery of some of your race is far beyond expectations and it fills us with hope. For indeed … YOU ARE PART OF US … JUST IN ANOTHER FORM AND DIMENSION. That is all.

Ami said...

Beutiful channeling, Blossom. I often feel this emotion: I miss them. Even if I can't remember... I miss them.
Thank you.

Amy Debeij said...

I read the latest channeling and recognised the feeling of knowing what I should be, but feeling as if I can't always keep it up :)

On the other hand, and if anyone else feels this as well let me know because I feel I'm sometimes the only one around, is during the day I'm all smiles and happiness :) Absolutely nothing can get me off this vibe at that time and I want it to last forever :)

There is a song which helps to keep me smiling: Break my stride by Matthew Wilder (youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY41o-iZStI )

It just feels right and happy just as we should be, happy with ourselves :)

Blossom Goodchild said...

Beautifully put Kerrie! and Amy ... that video was indeed uplifting! It cracked me up ... oh if only I could still get into that little green number!!
Thanks guys , your LOVE has brightened up my morning! Bloss xx

wanda said...

Once again Blossom, you have said what my heart has been screaming out to the stars every night. I KNOW it .. I FEEL it ... I have ALWAYS known. From early on in childhood, I always KNEW I did not belong here. I couldn't have been left in the right place.. LOL.
This latest channeling expressed everything We ALL are feeling.
I'm ready to get started. But, I understand on another level, that each "moment" that passes or approaches us is yet another opportunity for another soul to turn back to the light.
Hey yes.. I loved the radio show! Your spirit always makes me smile. Laughter really is the best medicine.
Namaste' to ALL beings of Light & Love. Really not that much longer, so let's hoist up those Lightswords.... It's time to shine !

The time is NOW!Love,light and gratitude Kerrie


BE YOUR LIGHT … and by doing so … you shall LIGHTEN UP YOUR WORLD

BE OF GREAT STRENGTH … For this ... you have in your souls
BE OF GREAT LIGHT … For this ... you are in your souls.
BE OF LOVE … For this ... IS your soul.~The Federation of Light~

Cath Clift said...

I just listened to Oliver's archived radio interview with you. Wow, what a wonderful chat, (Just to coin your phrase)...Full of Love and Laughter!

The FOL said that the result of the Gulf Oil spill would be "of shock value". Perhaps this is starting, as now that the spill is sealed, the media has begun to notice they can't find much of the oil. Did the FOL clean it?


Lisa said...

Blossom, thank you very much for the new channel. It was just what I needed to hear right now. Been feeling the shift in vibration a lot this week and have had many symptons of adjusting to it. Nice to confirm that indeed there was a shift. Also have been working on those core pictures or illusions around suffering and that somewhere in earths time a programming happened that told us we all had to suffer in someway and we have been playing out this suffering in many different ways and many different lifetimes. Many say at some point our dna was changed or at least if we believed enough that we are meant to suffer in some way on this planet, then the control and the changes on a celluar level are in place. You can't live as loving being if somewhere there is a kernel that we are meant to suffer. It has felt like it was a core thing in me that didn't allow me to truly be in my power or truly experience the joy in life. Like some part of me holding me back. It has been a huge shift these past few days and reading what they have said regarding our lack of belief in the truth and our belief that was can't do all this and more really hit home. Suffering is just an illusion! Experiencing love and joy is our true nature. Wow again big stuff in this newest channel. thank you and golden rays to you!

Andrew said...

Thanks for reminding us of this story 4 years onward. I felt I needed to comment because reading this made me "get it" that little bit more. You can imagine my delight when I saw that 17 yr old me had commented on this four years ago. I had forgotten this story. My previous comment says that I got something out of this story back then, but I know that this time, further into my journey I was able to 'get it', to 'see it' far more then I was back then. Thanks Blossom
