SPIRITUAL GROWTH GUIDE: for Ascension Preparation & Expansion

😇  First, a Spiritual, (prophetic) Message for Today:

IT IS A NEW WORLD NOW, one that's intended to be governed by divine knowledge and wisdom. for... The floodgates of knowledge have been opened. And the time has come, that the struggle to understand shall be over, the blindfold has been lifted off. Therefore, let that which has been hidden, now be received with greater ease.

📚 Now, Today's Enlightenment Lession, 

The FUNDAMENTALS of PERSONAL SPIRITUAL GROWTH An enlightenment process for Ascension Preparation & Expansion

Today I would like to address the basic pricipals which facilitate spiritual growth & ascension, through developing our "FUNDAMENTAL STATE OF BEING" which simply put is the Attitude of Mind, Heart/Soul & Spirit/Lifeforce energies. 

This is the "state of our overall wholeness/wellness of being." 

Our state of being is what governs/dictates how we approach & interact with others & life in general.

I will begin by emphasizing, Forgiveness, which I believe is "The Key Principal" in regard to ficilitating (or excellerating) spiritual development & assention into our higher states of being. 


Is the doorway to enlightenment & wholeness: that is Recieving forgiveness for ourself, enables our ability to also forgive others.

FORGIVENESS begins like all areas of higher spiritual learning, through the inner healing of ourself. 

Because, in order to be able to help others in any area, we must learn through becoming whole in that area first for ourselves.

So, we must begin by forgiving ourself for not being perfect. In this, one becomes able to accept & love one's self "as is today," in order to feel confident enough to allow for growth & change tomorrow. 

For, through forgiving ourself for our own imperfections, we are inabled to understand that, 

"human perfection 'Is Not' required to be worthy of receiving love for ourself as is today," 

Therefore this also 'enables' us to give love without expecting perfection from others as well.


FORGIVENESS of SELF & OTHERS, IS also, THE FIRST GIANT STEP onto THE PATH OF ACHIEVING LOVE, PEACE, HAPPINESS and WHOLENESS (or Serenity) IN LIFE. This means, achieving a balance or harmony between Body/Mind, Soul and Spirit.

Here forward this is what leads us toward true inner peace, happiness, unconditional love and respect/or appreciation for self, others and for life it's-self as a whole. Creating a "Stability of Being," resolving inner conflict with the duality of self, is "SERENITY".

The result of practicing these Sacred  Principals is, that we start living "inside of serenity," by developing this, "a more selfless mind set."  

Therefore, we begin living life more abundantly on earth as well as in spirit. This is because, when we realign our attitude of being; we are no longer obsessed with the "I want" of humanness or the physical worldliness. Needs are met and that 'is enough', and "I am enough" for become satisfied/full; therefore self is set free to rise and abide on a higher spiritual plane. This 'is' the process of assention...

ASSENTION is about spiritual growth; achieving a higher level of spiritual maturity. This means moving away from a self-centered (humanistic, ego driven) lifestyle. It is by gaining more spiritual knowledge & wisdom/understanding, that we mature emotionally & spiritually, which causes us to "Ascend/level-up" to a higher level spiritual plane.

In simple terms, we are here Learning to Live & Love Divinley in this physical world, as we learn & mature in the spiritual realm.

Now, Let's Move Forward To

*The Foundation for Achieving our "Higher Self" is tied to learning, understanding & practicing the following basic, "fundamental principles" of human, spiritual growth.


because we never stop learning as long as we remain open, the following Principals should be considered

"The Infinite Loop" as each principal, builds upon & supports the development & expansion of the next & all others infinitely ascending to a higher level...

1. Hunger for Knowledge & Understanding/Wisdom-seeking

(which leads to)

2. Awe of Life Force/Creator & all creation it's-self, (which leads to)

3. Gratefulness, (which leads to)

4. Humbleness, (which leads to)

5. Respect (which leads to)

6. Forgiveness & Kindness (leads to) 

7.Compassion & Mercy (which leads to) 

8. Acceptance & Peace (which leads to)

9. Contentment.& Happiness (leads to)

10. Well-being/Wholeness 

(all envoke the expression of)

11. Unconditional Love 

(which manifests a state of)

12. Selflessness/Serene living

*As one spiritually progresses, the order of these principals in practice, does not have to remain rigid in approach. As the need for growth & understanding in certain areas varies over time, & per individual.

     However, for maintaining a healthy, well balanced life, it is a good to regularly check for areas of need for growth progress in all areas. 

And this is most easily done through:

*Reflection while in a prayerful, meditative state by:

*Focusing on each of the 12 Principals (in order). 

*Pausing on each, to reflect/focus on your STATE of BEING

*To consider: your daily, general mind set/thoughts, routine behaviors, characteristics/choices, likes, dislikes, & feelings, interaction with others; all of which indicates your true "Spiritual Attitude" = State Of Being: Mind/Heart/Soul.


Regularly doing an Internal check by focusing on each of the "12 fundamental growth principles" (one at a time in the order listed above) Insures maintaining one's Spiritual & Emotional stability, it also insures ongoing, continued, growth/progress.

As you can see,
This "State of Being Attitude" Check, works similar to the way we check, maintain & balance our Chakra Energies during meditation. 🌱

Warm days are waning,

We lean to earth’s edge,
As our desire suspends us,
We drift beyond time and space.

July 30, 2015 Article ~ Originally written for a writing prompt to #MakeWiseHistory 
(see prompt *guidelines at end of this article)
**NOTE: "Caliburn" is Archaic speech for Excalibur


LOVE,  How Can I Define it?

LOVE  How Can Love be Defined, what is it’s worth?
Love is a word which has nearly lost it’s meaning for many. Because love as a word has been misused, it has been used to manipulate & now love is even attach to things “I love my car, ice cream, wallpaper... for crying-out-loud!”
    But getting to the point, “true love… real love,” ‘is’ unconditional and emotionally, it’s made up of many things. For this reason, it is nearly impossible to explain what love is in words. Yet, most of us see that ‘love’s value’ stands far above all else in this world. For it is love, ‘the eternal unseen’ force within each of us, that seems to give life even beyond the length of our own human existence.
    But how can we know what love is, how can we teach love? We can speak of our expressions and acts of love, we can even speak of how love makes us feel, but Love itself seems indefinable with words alone. For “love” encompasses every aspect of our being. Therefore, love itself can only truly be defined by one’s actions, it can be observed, “what we do for the sake of love”. For to love someone, is to unconditionally surrender our self-defenses; it is to sacrifice our own needs and pride at times, for the sake of another, sometimes even at the risk of our own well being.

It is written that a man named Jesus once said to his disciples, “There is no greater love then this; that one lay down their life for their friends.”
~: New International Bible :~

(Tanka style poetry)

I trounce you darkness,
Put my sword to your cold heart,
Your hatred shall not rule me,
For I am the power of light,
I Caliburn be love.

“I Caliburn Be Love” Tanka Style Poetry &Article
 by Dolly S.J. Piper 2015©
Steam Trunk Publications™

We all need love. Scientific studies have proven that, those who are shown love thrive and those who are deprived of it wither & in some cases one can even die when deprived of love. It is only love, which can fully open our heart to experience the best of life. Without love there would be no passion in life. It is love which takes us to heights of ecstasy; and love can also plunge us to the very depths of agony. But even though sometimes love can bring us the greatest pain in life, we cling to it; for love is the very essence of our soul, love is that which makes us human. To put love into words, I believe that the following biblical text defines the essence of love best:

"The Way of Love"
If I speak in the language of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the ability to prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge of the universe, if I have all faith enough that I can remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I sacrifice my body in order to boast; but do not have love, I receive no benefit.
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. Love is not glad about injustice, but it rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all that is positive, love brings hope to every circumstance, and love enables us to endure all things. Everything else in this world will pass away, but love last forever… 
~: New International Bible 1st Corinthians 13 :~

IN CONCLUSION, ‘My definition’ of love is this: first, to qualify love and loving I must say, “if it ‘does not’ fit within the guidelines of the above prophetic text, "The Way of Love", it’s not love.”
     I believe that, love is the substance and sustenance of our very being, ‘it is’ the light and life within each of us, that “unseen” yet clearly demonstrated force within. That which many have called “Creator/the Divine/God.” Love, it is our only true legacy from ‘self’ in this world, that ‘essence’ which is to be passed on for generations to come. Our love transcends the physical, ‘it is’ the sacred part of our-self, made eternal. Therefore, the love we share with others is the only thing of worth we have to give. But that is surely the greatest wealth of all! For it lasts beyond the life we live on this earth. 
“Namaste” (ie.) for this within us, I respectfully & humbly bow before ‘you’

CHRONIC PAIN, the pain of Fibromyalgia is like being crucified daily, but unlike crucifixion, no one can see your suffering... Your ability to live life freely has been robbed & that is the sword thrust in you! ... But, death does not come to relieve... Then there are times when the pain disappears, just long enough to remind you what it is like to live free... Then again! ...the Banshee comes screaming, sadistic bitch! This is my life, Dolly S.J.

Clarification is a good thing! 
about the topic, “Submissive – Dominate Intimacy” Couples Role Playing

I often present somewhat controversial subjects on my profile page; such as the current offering on “submissive/dominant” sexual intimacy. Whatever subject I share, I always try to present all subjects in as unbiased manner as possible. Therefore, sometimes I’m sure some people may think my life must be pretty weird or kinky. The truth is, I am a free spirited person, but I actually live a very simple, ordinary lifestyle. However, I strive to share subjects which I hope are going to make people think beyond what they already know from personal experience. I try to present topics which are interesting, stimulating, & informative. Therefore, so far I have shared a wide range of topics; from the practical, science, fun, funny, & even supernatural phenomenon.
Now getting back to my current topic, I think it is very important to mention at I realize there’s always a huge risk of misconception or misunderstanding with controversial topics that I present online. So I want to clarify a couple things about this month’s current topic because of the intimate nature of it. It is important that you realize I DO NOT, support any practice or behavior, which is physically or emotionally harmful to anyone.

The current subject “Submissive – Dominant Intimacy” is about sexual role playing between consenting adult partners, it is sensual sex play which does no harm; it is for the purpose of stimulating healthy passion & excitement usually in long-term relationships. Healthy, consensual, sex play or role playing, between couples often helps to keep things fresh, which encourages ongoing desire between partners. It is extremely important to maintain sexual intimacy between partners of any age. Because human touch & emotional acceptance is as important to human health as is food, water & sleep.

What is “Submissive – Dominant” couples role playing?
1.)    It is ‘Not’ “Sadomasochism,” Sadomasochism is a practice which involves potentially dangerous behaviors such as: physical beatings, gagging, choking, touchier, forced sexual situations & practices which cause extreme emotional humiliation to a partner. Also, heavy bondage & restraint equipment is used, with which a person is unable to free them self on their own.
2.)    Submissive – Dominant role-play, is a situation means one person is in charge & the other surrenders to their instruction. Usually,  partners use costume such as sexy lingerie such as bustiers, & thongs etc, is set in a special, sexy room at home, or somewhere new, & (per agreement between partners) may use blindfolds, masks, “soft restraints” (such as cloth ties) sexual toys, (such as ticklers, soft paddles, fur cuffs, vibrators etc) whatever is comfortable for both partners. A partner is never restrained in such a way they cannot get free if needed. The intensity of interaction is always seductive, exploitative, teasing, pleasing & never harms or frightens. There is always a “safe word” which means STOP NOW; the reason for this is because sexual verbalization can often be confusing in the heat of passion.
3.)    The Dominate partner gives verbal/non-verbal direction & asserts what I refer to it as “compassionate control,” this requires being in tune with their partner’s comfort level/needs. The Submissive partner maintains an attitude of surrender during their entire intimate encounter. Both roles requires being in tune with your partner. This is why S & D, works best with committed or long term relationships.

4.)    It is not unusual for couples to switch who is the dominant from time to time.

Many couples participate in some version of sensual play, it is part of healthy interaction between them, it keeps things fresh & even often improves a couples ability to communicate more openly & honestly with each other. The key is trying new things sexually, which both partners are comfortable with & this of course, requires open verbal communication. Sensual play usually starts before entering the bedroom, it isn't just "sexual" in nature, but it is intimacy. Sharing quiet, private moments, cuddling on the sofa to watch a movie, laughing & talking about interests, a touch or hug in passing, cooking together, loving words spoken over the phone on a lunch break & never, forget to say "I love you," it doesn't always have to be in words, but those words are very important! These exchanges are the things which prepare the mind for more deeply intimate interaction later.

Statistics show that couples with an open intimate relationship, tend to remain monogamous & in long-term relationships.

If you have any questions about the current topic, please feel free to ask me! Also, please comment, your input on this subject is important. Thank you!

A "Tribute Poem" to my love, following this article

Tea & Petit Fours "On Chantilly Lace"

People who know me well, know that I live with a disabling illness, which makes my immune system very sensitive. Today I woke up feeling so bad I couldn't get out of bed. I was suffering with terrible bout of hay fever. Much to my delight Mick showed up with lots of love & adoration; he brought me a box of my favorite French Petit Fours & my favorite tea. Mick kissed me on the cheek & told me I was beautiful, I knew he really meant it too, when he stood up he pulled his phone out of his pocket & took my picture, LOL! 
     Mick always seems to see me through the eyes of his love! Because of this amazing man's love & affection, my life is filled to the brim with happiness. I truly am blessed beyond measure! It is because of him that I have the confidence to share the following with you... Mick's photo of me, "NOT at my best!" So, excuse the puffy eyes, no makeup, hair a mess, & my PJ's,... (it's all for the arts & the love of my muse) by the way, don't expect to see many photos of me like this, LOL!
    When a woman feels less then able to meet life head on, & her love sees her only as beautiful; she needs nothing more to bring her bouncing back to her confident best self. When someone is down, a sincere expression of love is always the best boost for one's hope & confidence.

The Poem below is dedicated to the man I love ~ (This photo of me was taken by Mick Manning)

On Chantilly Lace

Today he brought me tea and Petit Fours,
Then bending down, he whispered in my ear,
Saying, “You’re so beautiful today my dear;”
As I sat up in bed pushing back, my untidy hair,
With a blush and shy smile, my eyes began to tear,
I think that, “This man’s love... it truly is so rare;”
His love's like Chantilly lace, is precious and so fair,
Nothing do I cherish more then, this love we share,
Thought of life without him, is more then I can bear.

DON'T JUDGE - You don't know!


HUMAN MORALITY: A short Article & Music Video collection.

Especially online, we cannot know what a person has been through in life! Everyone has had joys & tragedies, good & bad experiences, successes & failures, love, heartbreak; in this we have no choice... But it is the hardest parts of life which build strong character in us, in this we do have a choice... We can allow the hard things to mold us into a bitter, angry person, OR we can allow those things to make us a strong, more compassionate & loving person.
   The import thing  about living a good & honest life is, that a person learns above all, to 'not' judge others. Appearances are often deceiving, it is not how a person looks, the tone of their skin, how they dress or even how someone expresses their self creatively; these are not the marks of the quality of a person's character. Instead it is the way someone  treats others which speaks of who they are as a person.
    When we look at another person we certainly cannot tell what a person has been through. In addition, we do not even know what good that a person contributes to this world. For in most cases, the most honest, compassionate, kind, & giving people remain true unsung champions of mankind... What these heroes give to the world, is usually given quietly, in private, without receiving any accolades.
    It is human nature to be somewhat judgemental, but the next time you meet someone & feel that desire to judge because of what you think you see... PAUSE, REWIND, & REFLECT, on 'your own' imperfections, then wait,,, It is important that all of us give time for a person to prove who they really are, It is  important to look for the inside to shine through, to look for a person's true spirit their character & that takes time. Don't be narrow minded, or you just could miss out on being blessed by the love others want & have to share with you.

It is my belief that the greatest purpose in life which we all serve, is to bring hope to others. How we bring hope to others, is by honestly & openly sharing our triumphs over adversities in life; it is these experiences which are our miracles!

Read why I believe in miracles & link to one of my Facebook friend's miracle story.
By, Dolly S.J. Piper



A story about sharing "faith & hope" from the Bible NASB 
(Read the "Living Water Principal" Bible story below my personal article)

Read my personal article below this photo & link
READ ABOUT MY FACEBOOK FRIEND’S MIRACLE BIRTHS (see her picture below). Link Here, to read her Facebook post

Biblical Miracles Do Still Happen Today

By definition a “miracle” simply put, is an event or experience, which defies scientific, medical or other common explanations.

Why do I believe in miracles? 

Because I have experienced them in my life; for example: When medical treatment failed to help me. Through prayer I have been instantly healed of:

1. Over twenty years ago I was diagnosed with a severe liver condition, which I was told will kill me if I did not get medical treatment to correct the problem. So I did get treatment, but the medical treatment failed to correct the problem. Yet with prayer & faith I continue to defy that diagnosis. I am not only still alive but also I continue to live a generally healthy life, still without any of the signs or symptoms of liver failure.
2. In 1980 after being told that I was going to die because there was nothing else the doctors could do to help me, after two people prayed together with me & I was instantly healed of terminal abdominal cancer & epilepsy.

3. in 1993 I was in an accident which broke my back & almost severed my spinal cord in my neck. I was told by doctors "not to get my hopes up too high," but possibly with intensive physical therapy, I might be able to recover from being bed fast to use a wheelchair. After prayer I began to recover quickly within six months I could walk again using a walker for support, within two years I no longer even needed the walker & within four years, I was able to power walk a mile in seven minutes!

3. Several of my family members have had similar experiences with instantaneous healing of terminal cancer & other illnesses. Also, following a simple prayer, my mother instantaneously recovered from a massive stroke. Mom left the hospital healed of all signs & symptoms of the physical damage from that stroke. Following that stroke, mom lived a happy, healthy life until she passed 5 years later when she was 86 years old.

4). THERE HAS BEEN TIMES I HAVE BEEN IN SUCH FINANCIAL DISTRESS, that I did not even know how I could make ends meet for even my basic human needs like food & shelter… But, through prayer in faith, I have received unexpected substantial amounts of money to help me get by; or sometimes without asking, I have been given food, clothing or other resources I needed. In addition, even in times when jobs were few, I have been offered the best employment opportunities. The point is, I have never had to go without for long; no matter what the circumstances may have been!

For those who believe in miracles & have prayed for a miracle, but not received it, there is always the question in their minds “Why didn’t I get the miracle I prayed for?” Is it lack of faith, am I a bad person & being punished, or am I unworthy for some other reason? I do not think either of those answers is correct. So following here’s my take on a possible “why” answer to that question:

"ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE & DO NOT DOUBT” this means “faith” in the Creator’s ability & desire to give what you’re praying for, (Mark 9:21-23 NASB). I'm impressed to “re-enforce your faith in miracles” based on this scripture & the following understanding on why your past prayers for a miracle may not have been fulfilled yet.

Our Creator does NOT live in a box! Therefore, to "receive a miracle" we must be able to think "outside of the box" what I mean by this is; have "no expectations" as to “HOW” our Creator will answer your prayers for a miracle. Having expectations as to "how" a miracle request is answered, can often limit your ability to receive that blessing. Just "Ask & you will receive" (Mathew 21;20-22 NASB); this is the key for opening the door for your miracle! Don't prevent the Creator's ability to give you what you're asking for, by limiting the way in which you think our Creator is going to give you what you’re praying for. Keep an open mind! (Before you pray, read below some of the alternative ways your prayers may be answered) then, BE BLESSED & RECEIVE YOUR MIRACLE NOW!



1). Following prayer, in addition to instantaneous physical healing, people have received miraculous physical healing through traditional medical treatment, & new or innovative medicine such as holistic treatment as well.

2). Following prayer, those who are having extremely bad financial problems; have received large sums of money from surprise inheritances, free contests, or other unexpected sources. Others have even been offered employment or business opportunities which came from unexpected resources. Families have been given free cars, homes, food, clothing, or had their needs met by other unexpected sources.

3). Following prayer, people have been reunited with family members which have been missing for years, or people who thought they were alone & had no living family members; have been contacted by family the didn’t even know they had.

4). After prayer, women who have been unable to conceive children have given birth, have been given a family member’s child to raise, or become able to adopt children unexpectedly.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOUR NEED IS, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF ITERATIVE WAYS YOUR NEED CAN BE MET, often in many ways you may not ever even think of. If a need is met by any unexpected means, that is your miracle!

Miracles are ‘not’ based on being perfect, good, or religious, miracles are based only on “having Faith!”

It is my belief that the greatest purpose in life which we all serve, is to bring hope to others.

"Living Water Principal" Bible story
Conversation With a Samaritan Woman

4:4 But he had to pass through Samaria. 4:5 Now he came to a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the plot of land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 4:6 Jacob’s well was there, so Jesus, since he was tired from the journey, sat right down beside the well. It was about noon.
4:7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me some water to drink.” 4:8 (For his disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies.) 4:9 So the Samaritan woman said to him, “How can you – a Jew – ask me, a Samaritan woman, for water to drink?” (For Jews use nothing in common with Samaritans.) 
4:10 Jesus answered her, “If you had known the gift of God and who it is who said to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 4:11 “Sir,” the woman said to him, “you have no bucket and the well is deep; where then do you get this living water? 4:12 Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.”

4:13 Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again. 4:14 But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in Hima fountain of water springing up  to eternal life.” 4:15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come hereto draw  water.” 4:16 He said to her, “Go call your husband and come back here.” 4:17 The woman replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “Right you are when you said, ‘I have no husband,’ 4:18 for you have had five husbands, and the man you are living with now is not your husband. This you said truthfully!”

4:19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I see that you are a prophet. 4:20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you people say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.” 4:21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 4:22 You people worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because salvation is from the Jews. 4:23 But a time is coming – and now is here  – when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers. 4:24 God is spirit,  and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 4:25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever he comes, he will tell us everything.” 4:26 Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am he.”

in Concrete Poetic Style (Shape poem)

 foot note:LATIN To mediate for, released, loosed, unloosed, unloosened, unbound, “paid in full” 


 With sorrows struck, feme sought for sleep,
Yet, she could not, she didst only weep;
With furrowed brow in dark of night,
Embattled fights by angel's aerial;
As a vigilant conciliates in prayer,
Feme pleas to mend rare paladin,
But solus, canst she burden part?
For only one, dost hold that heart,
And, heal that warrior’s scars of fray;
For 'tis grace, alone his sting is bought;
Tho in siege feme is bent thy willow bough,
