What You Believe In ...

What you believe in, you create. You are what you think, because your thought is that powerful. God created us as an extension of Himself, Herself, through thought --- a Love thought --- and you have the same ability to create.

Your thought, your beliefs, your intentions, create the reality you "see". If you think the world and others are out to get you, then you will be presented that reality. If you think that Love is the essence of everything, that it is behind all appearances, that is what you will see. The Universe bends to your desire.

Unfortunately, many never see this universal law 101 for what it is. So if they think the world is out to get them, they bring people and experiences into their reality which show them this, and then they believe it, which reinforces their belief, which brings them more of the same, etc. It is like a dog chasing its tail.

Not a very good system unless you understand the inherent good and abundance in everything and you take responsibility for your actions and thoughts. Then the system works as God intends and life flows with a beautiful joy and simplicity. When you understand how it works, and you put out what it is you want --- joy, abundance, kindness, compassion, Love, peace --- then you bring those fruits of the Kingdom to you. Concentrate and be grateful for health, not be worried about disease. Be grateful for financial security, not energizing the worry over being financially strapped. Even if you don't think you have health or financial security, PRETEND as if you do and feel grateful for that. It is not really pretending as it actually changes you at a DNA level and brings to you what you need.

So be very careful what you energize with your thought. Is it fear or Love? Is it judgment or compassion? Is it abundance or lack?

What is the difference between these two statements? I see the world as it is? And the world is as I see it?

If You Had No Self Judgment ...

If you had no self judgment, you would be Divine. Actually, you are already Divine -- this cannot change! But you would feel your Divinity, feel God's Presence within you, to the state where it brings you to tears of gratitude.

This is where you are headed! This is your inheritance. Jesus said you would do greater things than him. Do you not take him at his word? He raised the dead and fed everyone gathered from one fish. Wow, what does that mean you are capable of doing?

You will do greater things because you are as holy as him and he showed us the way. He showed us that when we do not believe ourselves to be sinful --- which is having no self judgment and allowing God to fully work through us --- then we have no limits. Miracles are only seen as miracles in a world where there appears to be limits and where people think they are limited. In Heaven, miracles are the norm :)

But didn't Jesus tell us that Heaven is within us and that we can have the Kingdom here and now? So what appears to be limits in this reality is just that, appearances.

You are holy beyond measure. You just don't recognize it --- yet. This is why you are here at this incredible time on Earth. If you want to recognize it, be willing to drop what prevents you from recognizing it. Pretty easy and logical, right? Funny how people want to hold on to certain beliefs and don't do what they know is in their best interest.

God waits in infinite patience and Love for you to recognize who you are. Again, it is only about recognition and remembrance, for you are already there. How willing are you to drop what is false in you, how badly do you want it? If you want it, truly want it, you have to be consistent. You have to constantly witness your thoughts and beliefs and bring yourself back to Truth when you fall off center. When you have an emotional reaction, like anger, ask what is the belief behind that. And keep witnessing and unwinding that belief system, because it is a contorted ball that affects everything you do.

When you will fall off center (which you will) and don't live up to your expectations, then have compassion on yourself. Self compassion is the single most important thing you can do to bring yourself into God awareness. It is truly what heals you above anything else, because self compassion allows you to drop the self judgment. When you drop the self judgment ..... then only God is there. And having self compassion allows you to have compassion on everyone and everything. Then you see only through eyes of Unity, which is all that exists. What a beautiful and holy endless fountain of compassion and Love that becomes. And then life becomes very magical.

You Don't Have To Say, Do, Think ....

You don't have to say, do, or think certain things to be accepted by God. You don't have say, do, or think certain things to be your Real Self, to be in the Light, to be awake or "enlightened."

You are already complete and perfect as you are --- NOW. The big misconception of the spiritual path, really any path you see yourself on although they are all "spiritual," is that you have to change yourself in some way. You have to do this practice, or abstain from doing something else, say a certain prayer all the time, or eat certain foods, etc. etc. etc. Ask yourself what it is you believe that you must do to earn God's Love, to be in Grace, to fit in. What do you think you need to do change yourself? Do you see how your belief that you need to change yourself is preventing you from seeing how incredibly holy and Divine you are, right now.

Your divinity, your holiness, is your inheritance from God. There is NO THING that can change that, regardless of what you believe about yourself. For what you believe and what is Truth are completely different.

Accept yourself NOW in this moment, exactly as you are. Isn't the most amazing and blessed thing that we don't have to do anything other than be who we really are? We don't have to add anything --- we just have to subtract, release what is false that covers up our recognition of the purity that is inherent. You see all these flaws in the diamond, but the diamond is completely perfect, no inclusions or flaws. This is how God sees you all the time. If you don't believe that, ask Him, and then be really ready for the answer. Because He waits to tell you this. He waits to tell you how much He loves you. You just aren't listening. You have to take away the chatter of the world because it is false and leads you to believe something about yourself and others that is not true. God is One. If He is Divine, which I can wholeheartedly assure you He is, then you are as well, because He is ALL that exists.

This doesn't mean that you can't take actions to "improve" yourself. It is the recognition of what needs to be improved that allows you the higher perspective of recognizing that you are perfect as is. It sounds paradoxical because it is. Our very existence as Divinity in a human body is paradoxical. We can recognize our perfection while also recognizing what we need to change to allow more of that Divinity to shine through. For the Divinity cannot NOT be there. It is just covered up by the clouds of your false beliefs. By removing the clouds, the false beliefs, the Sun, the Divinity is able to come through in magnificent brilliance. You are not only in the Light, you Are the Light.

Forgiveness

There is not a need for forgiveness in the way that the world thinks of it.. We create the need for forgiveness in OUR mind. Through the thought that someone has hurt or offended, treated us poorly in some way, we believe that we must forgive to heal. And as long as we hold the belief that we have been hurt, there appears to exist the need to forgive.

But these are our thoughts --- not universally held and thus not real. This applies from the most "minor" to the most "egregious" offense that we see as having been done to us --- from a simple comment by someone you barely know to sexual abuse by a parent.

In our minds there is really no difference, as we believe the need for forgiveness exists. It's just that with an act like sexual abuse there are so many layers of emotions tied up that we create this expansive story in our heads which requires forgiveness. But once we feel and once we are no longer controlled by the emotions behind it, untangling that emotional web, we can see the act of sexual abuse or rape for what it is --- another experience in our life --- and release the beliefs and story line around it that require forgiveness.

Certainly, as we release false beliefs, it is more difficult to that around family members. A stranger may say or do something that has no effect, but it is much more painful if done by a family member. This is because the family member is a long term part of the story you have created and don't want to disentangle from. So even forgiveness --- not even considering a higher perspective where forgiveness is not needed --- becomes difficult.

But even though the family member is a leading character in your story, it is still a story and they are no different than any other part of God you encounter. Forgiveness can be an important step when you are in the middle of healing an experience, but it is only a temporary step which allows you to move to a higher perspective. Just as we can never truly be hurt because we are Divine, God has no need to forgive us because we have never done anything which requires His forgiveness.

Accept To Transform

You cannot fully recognize your divinity without first recognizing and fully accepting your humanity.

You must accept all, as He is ALL. This includes your anger, fear, self judgment, shame, guilt --- all the things you currently push away because you consider them "bad."

You neither push away or deny these "bad" emotions or thoughts, nor do you judge yourself for having them. You simply acknowledge them, without judgment, and ask where they are coming from. What beliefs do you hold that create that emotion with in you? If you determine the belief behind the emotion, you can see the belief as false and you can transmute that emotion into energy that is now powerful for you and the world, instead of one that you fear and it takes great effort to suppress or fight.

You can't transform something which you haven't first accepted.

Being A Victim

When someone acts like a victim, that is the most powerless thing they can do.

They believe that this is powerful, because they believe that this will bring them attention and pity. But that is a very sad way to live life.

Power comes from knowing who you are --- One with God and all that is. This is where your safety lies, where all of your "problems" are seen in a different light, where you have no fear.

For we are not of this world. We are in it, but not of it. When you recognize this, you can be who you came here to be. You can use the gifts God gave you to help the world. You play a role, but that is not your identity. You are Divine and holy, created by God as an extension of Himself, Herself, and this is where all power comes from.

When you don't recognize your true identity, you will always feel inadequate, feel fear, feel like someone or something is trying to get you. Everything of this world will pass away as it is only here as a vehicle to help us learn, awaken, and remember. If you try to make your identity in something that is false, you will always be existing on a foundation of shifting sand, and this is very unstable. Your foundation is God, which is eternal, changeless, and provides complete stability.

Don't give your power, the power given to you as part of the Kingdom, away to others, groups, governments, etc. Be a warrior, not a victim. A warrior understands their power and uses it wisely to benefit the whole. A warrior is gentle and compassionate. They have no need to demean another person or boast about their accomplishments for they know who they are, that they already have everything in them they will ever need to be complete and whole.

Guilt

Guilt is not of God and does not exist in the Kingdom, but in this reality it does serve to help us awaken to changes we need to make.

When we feel guilty over something, we need to ask ourselves whether that guilt is justified, whether we have done something that has triggered that internal God compass. If so, we need to take action to rectify the situation --- this is how we grow and awaken. This could mean saying you are sorry or knowing that you need to do it different the next time.

Also, no one can make you feel guilty. You control whether you feel guilty. If someone is triggering guilt in you, they are giving you a gift so that you can take a look at your actions, words, or thoughts and see if they are in alignment with God. It does not matter what they are blaming you for. It only matters that you recognize the guilt within you and then explore the source and beliefs behind that guilt. Maybe your child says you are not a good parent. If you see that you could be doing some things different, then do them different without condemning yourself. Self compassion is extremely important. But maybe you recognize that you don't need to change anything --- it is your beliefs which tell you that you are not a good parent and you just need to release what is false inside of you. Usually it is a mix of the two.

Many people stay in long term guilt and never know it. They usually project the guilt on to others as blame and anger, never pulling the projection in and realizing that they are the source of the guilt. This is why the world appears as it does --- everyone blaming other people, groups, God, etc., instead of taking a look at themselves.
