Michael’s Musings (my business Facebook page) is where I comment several times a week on matters that may arise in my personal life, on the public news, or simply observations of my metaphysical outlook on life. These musings are also reproduced here on my website for your perusal and enjoyment.
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: From a reader. My question is: is it better to stay oblivious to negative truths as this will keep you in a more positive place OR is it better from a consciousness perspective to always seek the truth no matter how unpleasant ? A very perceptive question! There is no single answer to this because it depends on the nature of the person and on their spiritual fortitude and focus. I know of quite a lot of people who 'never' watch the news simply to keep them in a more positive frame of mind. This works well for them. However, let me add another perspective to this. Many people who live in the cities seek a weekend in the country simply so that they are able to rest and relax, recharged for the work-week ahead. However, if the city environment drains them of energy, and the country recharges them, they live at the mercy of their environment all the time. If you are spiritually in a place of inner peace, the city will not drain you of energy, and you will not need to recharge in the country; it will simply be a wonderful and natural place to be. This leads us into the second half of the question. From my viewpoint, it 'is' better from a consciousness perspective to seek the truth of what is taking place on a daily or weekly basis . . . but without any judgement or attachment on how it is, or on how it should be. It is as it is! In this manner the false mainstream news will not upset or negatively affect you. As you realise the depth of the duplicity we have all been involved in for so long, you simply smile as you learn that, like in a stagnant pond, the scum is all floating up to the surface and being exposed. Some people are willing to look at it, while others still pretend the pond is clean. So there are no rights or wrongs to this question. We each follow our intrinsic nature to either investigate or to ignore and dismiss. The main thing to realise in all this turmoil is that it is all 'good.' Not at all nice, but certainly very necessary. You can assist the process of integration with the new in your own life by constantly and CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love! ... See MoreSee Less
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: This musing is a reply to Shanicat's question below, regarding the soul. The main thing to remember here is that we do not 'have' a soul, we 'are' a soul, each one of us. It seems there is a cabal plan to reset humanity — and having read the script I am sure there is — and we can be certain that it is not for our wellbeing. It is all about control. Rudolph Steiner saw a probable future where we are enslaved automatons, and this is what the struggle is all about right now . . . opposing a global vaccine that will completely change humanity for the worse. We would lose all freedom, all rights. We would indeed be human sheep; a flock mentality of labour to be used and abused. The purpose of the global vaccine is to drive all inclination toward spirituality away from the soul's we are. Once we lose connection with the immortal soul we are, we go into a kind of limbo. Not death, but not living from our own creativity. Shanicat, we are eternal Beings, the souls we are do not die. However, being controlled and consigned to a living hell is not exactly creative living! The soul cannot be 'eliminated' but it can certainly lose its way with regard to life and living. And many on this planet are already lost souls . . . 'not' dammed or doomed. Just struggling in the illusion. Okay, the main point here is that 'we' are the creators of our lives. The cabal have unleashed a pandemic of fear into humanity. Those like yourself who are more awake 'feel' the falsity of it. You are more heart/soul oriented than the mainstream of people. They are more brain/intellect, more deeply in the illusion, and unfortunately, this includes most leaders and governments. If you look at history it becomes obvious that for centuries the cabals have been moving humanity to this point, and like sheep we have been herded along, perfectly happy as we were dumbed-down and entertained with meaningless rubbish. The intellect is so convinced of its cleverness that those people are the most easily fooled. They cannot believe or accept what is currently taking place. They reject what the many people like me keep saying over and over. They are clever, they know, so I/we are stupid. And they use their anger to reinforce their righteousness. Shanicat, each soul is on its journey. The souls that have connected with their spirituality will continue that journey, while the souls that are lost in the lies of religion — and there are also truths in religion — have surrendered that connection for a false teaching/programming. Other souls meander through lifetime after lifetime with nothing other than money as a security. We are now in the end-times when 'each path is leading to its own world'. We are each making our choice by the way we live moment by moment. Do not let fear govern your choices, Shanicat. It will fail you. Do not let the preservation of your physical body govern your choices. It will fail you. There is only one choice that will serve you and deliver you from evil. And you know this choice. It is the powerful choice of CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love! ... See MoreSee Less
With all my heart, thank you dear Michael! Having just reread your books beginning with Talking With Nature for the 3rd time since 1997, I am freshly inspired by your astonishing/vulnerable/enlightening journey into Self-Realization. Your “Michael’s Musings” response to the Q by Shanicat is so totally resonant with the need of the hour...”Don’t give up on this year...keep loving.” THANK you...with a full heart of love...for this timeless message...that speaks from Truth.
Thank you Michael! I just 'found' you via someone who shared your recent video on twitter. Love it 🌈. I see you are into gardening as well. Perhaps you like this tale, about little Princess Iris, her 'dark night of the soul' and ... a new gardener. And the rainbow. Yes, I guess we just have to 'hang in there'! ➡️ bit.ly/princessiris
To all our Aussie and Kiwi friends . . . I am presenting A WEEK WITH MICHAEL where we will explore the next stage of human evolution now unfolding, coming from a place of Love and empowerment rather than fear. In a world of increasing isolation, we must reconnect with our deeper spirituality and with Nature, and create the change we all so greatly desire. Carolyn and I both very much hope you will join us! “There is only one moment in time when it is essential to awaken. That moment is now.” Buddha
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: This involves a friend of mine, Neal, who has committed himself to spiritual growth. His current method is to read a page of one of my books every day, take notes, and 'really' digest and 'live' it to the best of his ability. Day 546 of reading one of Michael's books! Presenting Notes from Through The Eyes Of Love, Book 2! This begins with me, Michael, writing in my book. Michael: I have recently been reflecting on how Love has been so powerful in so many of my metaphysical journeys. In fact, I have been reflecting on Love. Somewhere in the Bible it mentions, “Love thy neighbour as thyself”. It seems to me that this has a rather abstruse meaning. Mostly we think of our neighbours as living next door, or within our immediate neighbourhood. The word neighbour actually means, 'a person or people in relation to others near or next to you'. This implies that thy neighbour means all the people who are in your life, no matter who they are or where they live. While you are physically with them, they are your neighbours. When you are thinking about them and having emotional feelings about them, they are your neighbors, no matter how far away they may be. I mention this because since entering the incredible experience of universal Love, I initially thought that I could Love all people anywhere, yet this has proven to be very nebulous. I definitely feel a powerful non-personal Love for the collective of humanity, but once that breaks down to individual people whom I do not know and who are not remotely involved in my life, I find that Loving them is no more than a conceptual idea of Love. Loving humanity is not a problem for me. This Love is based in the soul I am, not in my personality. Loving personalities requires your own personality to be lovingly involved. This begs the question; does unconditional Love have anything to do with personalities at all? Surely unconditional Love is based almost entirely on a soul level of expressing Love. Living on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, I can relate to, and Love, people in nearby Brisbane, but not in Belfast, or Boston. They are not my neighbors. Even though they are real places, those cities and their citizens are no more than a concept for me, just as I am for them. If I visit those cities, meeting the people and identifying with them, then I can Love them. If I read about news/drama in these cities, I can feel emotional for them, but emotions are not Love. We are only able to actually Love our neighbors in the ongoing moment of our lives. It is only by being aware of life in the ongoing moment that we are fully conscious, and Love is a conscious expression. I am humbled that I experience this Love. It begins by truly Loving self. If we are criticising self, or judging self, or comparing self, or punishing self, or needing another person's approval of self, plus the many other little negatives about self – then we are not Loving self. If we are not Loving self, we are unable to Love our neighbours. We can emote over them, but an outpouring of emotions, no matter how saintly or deep and expansive the feeling, is not Love. Note from Neal: Michael says, "Loving humanity is not a problem for me." Okay, I have my moments when loving humanity is easy and natural. And I have moments where I am boggled by it's utter stupidity. And I have moments in between. Humanity has not changed. Love has not changed. My ability to Choose Love and express it has changed a great deal. Often times there is no rhyme or reason to it. When I look at it from an intellectual standpoint it makes no sense. There are two men that I use as a case in point. One is a black man who's son lives in my neighbourhood. He thanked me one morning when I was doing my daily trash pick-up. We have spoken a few times, but never introduced ourselves. One morning I saw him sitting in his truck, and we waved to each other. Then my heart opened up to him. It was effortless. it flowed forth like a stream following the riverbed. A outpouring of Unconditional Love. I didn't have to to choose it, it happened all on it's own. Love came forth, and all I could do was experience it's wonder. I felt like a bit of a bystander, because I wasn't doing anything. Now everytime I shift my focus his way that Love is still there, flowing forth. The other one is a co-worker. An Orthodox Jew who is one of the higher-ups in the company. The first time I met his eyes BANG! that it was. That same outpouring of Love. And I feel it for most of the Orthodox Jews in the company. I have no idea why. I'm not Jewish, let alone Orthodox. I think religion is a rather silly thing for the most part. Yet, the Love pours forth. The funny thing is I do not Love myself as much as I love them. When I am holding my focus on those I Love like this I can feel it flow. I am Loving my neighbors far more than I love myself. When I shift that same focus to myself the flow stutters, becomes erratic, and becomes uncomfortable. My emotions / programming / filters / shadow self / etc block the flow. Disrupt it. The Love has not changed. It is my stuff getting in the way. And this is one of the things I am here to learn about. My list of homework keeps getting longer & longer. Michael: I replied to Neal's post. If I may make a comment: Love is not understandable. We attempt to intellectually define Love, but the intellect can never experience Love. Tough, huh? When you say that your Love is flowing to the the black mans son or the Orthodox Jews you see on odd occasions, yet you do not have it for yourself, you are moving into separation and illusion. You and humanity are One . . . no matter their colour or religion, ect. You cannot Love outside of Self, because there 'is' nothing outside of Self. Obviously this does not mean the body-self, it means the Being whom you truly are; that Being seldom realised. This is what Self-realisation, or spiritual enlightenment actually is . . that moment of recognising 'knowing' experiencing Self. And in that moment Self is All that Is. Self is the universe. I would suggest that when you feel this Love flow for others but not for yourself, it is a lifetimes-old connection that is so powerful that it takes on an emotional level that literally is indistinguishable from the Truth of Love. This changes when you fall in Love with Self. Hope this helps. It's a process . . . ! Neal . . . Michael Roads. Yes please, make comments!!! One of my challenges is surrendering the intellect. Your comment makes a bunch of sense; it pleases my intellect!!! It reaches deeply into other parts as well. Hopefully it will help other left-brainers move past their intellects! I have shared this because I am 'very' aware of the huge gulf in understanding the difference between emotions and Love. We do not intellectually choose Love, we allow the heart/soul to connect on a higher level and within the surge of energy we find that we are CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love. P.S. Thank's Neal. ...

MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: I'm going to have a little grumble today, so please bear with me. I read in a local paper an article 'Our Lost Paradise' about a woman who came to live on the Sunshine Coast in 1968. She lived just behind Mooloolaba beach in a lightly forested area filled with wild birds and abundant wildlife. This set me thinking, and remembering. When I came here in the mid 80's, Caloundra at the Southern end was a separate township, then natural coastal bush before Kawana, then more coastal bush full of wildlife and local ground orchids, before Alexandra Headland and Maroochydore. And so it continued north all along the coast with more towns, coastal bush, and a nice mix of people and wildlife; especially the iconic koala as far as Noosa. Now . . . it is one long connected Sunshine Coast City. Now . . . it is all about money, not nature. Our local councils have worked hard to help the Sunshine Coast become the fourth worst region in Australia for habitat destruction. Shameful. A short drive will reveal that this habitat destruction is continuing as coastal forests and bush fall before the bulldozer attitude of the councils involved. Sadly, this is a Queensland attitude. Australia is among the worst 11 countries for deforestation, according to WWF. And the state with the highest rate of land clearing is Queensland, who, in 2015-16, cleared about 395,000 hectares of native vegetation. This can be hard to visualise, but it's an area roughly the size of Sydney or Melbourne. I understand that people want to live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast . . . but sanity needs to prevail. People come here for the beauty and the council destroy it to accomodate them. Surely this is ridiculous. It began on the coastal strip and is rapidly expanding inland to the ranges. When I first visited Noosa Heads, it was a gorgeous place . . . now it is packed with people, hugely overpriced and overbuilt, it's once unique beauty completely lost. I avoid it. I ma lucky enough to live in a forested area well away from the maddening crowds! Okay . . . I'm done!!! It will not change until humanity once again returns to Nature. Only then will we find our true role as custodians of this planet Earth. Until that time — which I suspect is tied in with the Change that is upon us — I will smile at the world and focus on constantly and CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love! ... See MoreSee Less
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: Today 11 11 is a rather important day. You could regard it as a type of portal through which our thoughts and emotions have a more clear and powerful passage. Keep your thoughts and emotions high and fine today. Focus on your abundance, not the poverty of "I can't afford." Focus on the freedom of Love, not the chains of despair. Focus on peace in the world, not the conflict that rages in the human mind. We are all inclined toward lower energies, rather than the higher. Why? I suspect that we all carry lifetimes of grief of which we have no memory, and are unaware. Let me share a story: When my late wife died after 49 years of a very happy marriage, I was devastated. I had a photographic portrait of her that I particularly liked, and in the following months I would gaze upon her likeness longingly. As I turned away I would feel the Love energy sink into my solar plexus and turn to pain and loss and grief. One time as I turned away, she asked me, "Why do you do this? Why do you drop the Love energy from your heart to the emotion of despair? You could just as easily lift it to your crown chakra and feel Love lifted higher." I told her that such a thing had never occurred to me. So I practiced lifting the heartfelt Love instead of allowing it to plunge. And it worked. Instead of leaving her portrait with despair, I felt more uplifted by our Love. We are so used to pain and suffering, and loss and grief, endless lifetimes of it. It is time to be more conscious. Today is a good day to not succumb to that subconscious, deeply hidden, unrealised grief. Today is a good day to consciously and deliberately focus on the Love, the joy, the peace and abundance that is our birthright . . . and f-e-e-e-e-e-l it. In fact, today is a 'very' good day to CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose Love! ... See MoreSee Less
I always wanted to meet your lovely Treeny. I had been reading your books for awhile and felt love for her. I was terribly saddened when she died. I am grateful that the two of you had a beautiful marriage. Knowing this makes my heart smile. As always I am grateful for your messages and beautiful heart.
Love this teaching. Deeply committing to honor and embody the Divine and the spirit of Love in every chakra and toward every being.
It is my birthday today, I will enjoy it fully. I am allowed 2 persons a day as visitors, so I am celebrating it a whole week 🎉🎉🎉
Bless you Michael for your energy and words of encouragement.
Thank you Michael. I choose Love! ❤❤❤
A truly lovely lady I knew well
A beautiful useable story about our departed loved ones. Thanks!
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: Humanity has long suffered from a chronic condition known as illusion. So few people live in the dynamic of here and now - the only place that life exists - while so many live in a self-created mental and emotional illusion. The problems arise when most people are creating the same illusion, and when that illusion is fear based, then all hell breaks loose. This is humanity today . . . not everyone, but a majority. The direction of living in the helplessness of fear-based apathy is a direction for the disaster that has to happen. And we are in it. Imagine if all was calm and quiet now, and we were still cruising along in our illusion toward a pandemic of dementia . . . because this was in our probability path. I know this will shock some of you, but I view all the chaos and turmoil and death and disaster we are going through as absolutely essential to break out of a 'final' breakdown. So people are dying — there is no death. The Western World is totally lost in its delusion of the illusion that death is the END. Wrong, death is a new beginning . . . although in Truth there is no end and no beginning: all life is endless continuity. Why is this? Because all life is about the growth of consciousness . . . and put simply, much of humanity has stopped growing. So this little bit of political turmoil in the U.S along with some help from our covid friend is kicking all of us out of our apathy and complacency and kick-starting humanity back into growth. When we get stuck in the apathetic mud of more-of-the-same for too long, life is guaranteed to nudge us out of it. Right now, we are so immersed in the mud that a gently nudge would not work, so we get a good swift kick in the pants. Thank you, Trump. Thank you cabals. In the final analysis life always gets it right. When we lift our consciousness out of 'fear' and into 'Love' then the cabals will sink back into the karma of their own mud. Meanwhile, a focus on Love is the way to switch on your own growth in consciousness. This is why I so often suggest that you constantly and CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose Love! ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you Michael, you always have an inspiring message to share. I agree that humanity was/is sorely in need of a shove to get moving towards love and kindness.
Insightful and provoking as always Michael thank you. I like many have been watching what the US election however from observing a consciousness trigger of the game in motion. I agree that much more is to happen but the outcome is already materialised. Human awareness is just to catch up in my humble view. Love and Light to everyone
Well put, thank you

MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: I get asked, "If the Light is winning, or has won, how come everything in life is still such a chaotic mess?" I'll do my best to briefly explain this. Most people fail to realise that the metaphysical always precedes the physical. We live in a metaphysical world of energy on many differing frequency levels. We each have 5 basic bodies. Most people know life as physical; this is the slowest and densest of the frequencies. Next comes the mental body; a slightly higher frequency which, by focus, we manifest our thoughts into our physical life. Next comes the emotional body, a similar frequency that, like the mental, can be lowered or raised, and added to the mental is expressed in our daily life. The mental and emotional combined with whole-brain, open heart, and active pineal energy make up what we will call the spiritual body. To consciously choose to grow spiritually begins the process of a far greater development of all the combined bodies, all of which occupy the same space/moment. Last comes the astral body, which, like the spiritual body, is on a 4th dimensional level. We are active in this body every night while we sleep, but mostly completely unaware. Okay . . . on the astral level the struggle between the two forces that we call good and evil, or light and dark, or right and wrong, whatever, has already been won by the Beings of Light. But this is on the astral level, and we are actually astral Beings in denial. Our task is to bring this higher energy frequency down through the spiritual, emotional and mental bodies until we manifest the victory into our physical lives. How do we do this? We do it by keeping our focus on Love and Light. We do it by not getting caught up in slandering those we see as opponents to our way of thinking. We do it by realising that all politics and religion is a way of distracting us from our quintessential Truth: every one of us is a magnificent, metaphysical, multidimensional, eternal Being of Love and Light. This is your Truth. If we were to all focus on our Truth, we could bring about the end of division and chaos in months. As it is, I expect this to draw out to at least 2025. Many people are unaware, closed, aggressive, blaming and angry. This is not bad or wrong, but it will delay the process we are in. This is why for years I have been saying and writing that nothing is more important now than constantly and CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love! ... See MoreSee Less
MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: I wrote this yesterday, so I thought I would share it with you today. Just a little insight into our brains.
A LEFT-BRAIN — RIGHT-BRAIN CONVERSATION
L-B — As chaos rises I find that life is very worrying. R-B — Worrying! What is worrying? L-B — All the chaos and confusion. R-B — No, I mean what is worrying? What does this mean? L-B — It means that I worry about my future. What might happen. R-B — You still have not explained worry to me. And “my future.” There is no future, there is only now, this moment. This is the only place of life. L-B — But the future is what is coming, with all its problems. With this coronavirus I might die soon, or in the months ahead . . . so I worry about it. R-B — Hmm . . . so what does this ‘worrying’ achieve? L-B — Er, actually nothing. But I can’t help but worry. It is what I do. R-B — So if I have this correct, you spend time worrying over a no-time state that does not exist . . . because this is what you do? If this is what worry is, it amounts to stressing about something that has not yet become reality. L-B — Well, it sounds stupid when you put it like that. But this is my job. I have been over-activated and over-developed since I lost my deeper connection with you. I am mostly alone. I have to work out everything in life. This is very stressful. R-B — You have my sympathy, but you live in an illusion. If you have Trust everything will naturally fall into place. This is the natural order of life. L-B — Trust! What is this Trust? I hear the word very often, but I cannot Trust. it is outside all my design parameters. I am designed for fear, for judgement, blame and anger, and to be very, very clever. R-B — Interesting, so you are clever via your intellect. But the intellect sees everything in the world as separate, whereas I see everything in the world as connected. How does being clever help when you live in a clever illusion? L-B — That’s ridiculous. I can see that the physical world is based in separation. Separate trees, separate people. These objects are not touching each other, therefore they are disconnected. R-B — So you do not inner-see their energy fields. All connected, all one unified field of energy. All One consciousness. L-B — What nonsense is this. You are wrong and I am right. Of course I cannot inner-see, it is outside my design parameters. I do not understand you. Does nothing worry you, or deeply stress you? R-B — We are very different. I consider that worry is interest paid on troubles not yet due. Worry is an investment that will pay no dividends, but it ‘will’ punish your health and wellbeing. So no, I do not worry. When the unfit, dominant left-brain person thinks they can run up ten flights of stairs and they nearly collapse, then I feel stress. I also wonder why they did not use my deeper conscious intelligence, instead of your subconscious intellectual more-of-the-same. L-B — So you think you are smarter and better than me! R-B — No, we function differently. You react with fear, I respond with love. I think we should come together as a far more balanced Whole-Brain. Working in tangent, you can work on the problems of the mental and technological world, while I show you the workings of a far greater metaphysical reality. Together, we can become Whole, allowing the person we are a far greater wisdom than while we are compelled to act as two separate entities. Together, we can create a new life for our person, showing them their true potential as a Wholistic Being.
Nice, huh? I suspect this is a common conversation even if no one is listening! May I suggest that to get through the turmoil of the next 4 to 5 years you would be far better served if you do, indeed, bring your brain into a natural whole-brain balance. In turn, this will make it easier for you to CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose Love! ... See MoreSee Less
