An Open Heart

When we talk about coming from an open heart, how can we do that and stay there? First, visualize your heart opening like a flower that is announcing itself to the world and is giving a blessing of its beauty and Love to every person that encounters it. This is what you give to the world and to everyone who comes into contact with you when you come from an open heart.

Coming from an open heart means that you acknowledge and express the Unity and divinity that runs through ALL. It is based on respect, non judgment, and compassion. It does not mean that you are not hurt at times by others, but these times are manna, opportunities for you to stay heart centered, to grow from these so that your flower can unfold even further, increasing the blessing you can provide the world and the next person you encounter.

It takes a warrior to live from an open heart when you are hurt, when you want to judge and attack and go back into your protective shell which you falsely believe keeps you safe. We are only safe in Him, and we can only know Him when we live from an open heart.

When the hurt arises, you cannot allow it to turn into a trail of false judgment and recrimination thoughts that justify your closing of your heart. You must immediately go to forgiveness. Only through forgiveness can you heal that person, the world, and most importantly yourself, because as you forgive others, you forgive yourself.

A Microcosm

The whole is represented through each part, because only unity exists. A grain of sand reflects the full body of Christ and is a microcosm of the whole, just as each of us does the same. This is why you can see God in everyone and everything, for He is truly in ALL.

With Love

Creation is God's Will. We were created out of Love, and as we create out of Love, God knows Himself as Love to ever deepening levels. In everything you do, in all of your tasks, in all of your relationships and interactions with others, do it with Love. Ask yourself how you can create something or do a task with Love instead of dread. Ask yourself what words you can say that will be a blessing to that other person --- this doesn't have to be profound --- it is more your intention than what you say. And do everything with great gratitude, because when we create and interact from Love, we are very grateful.

A Purpose

Everything shares a purpose with you, from the "living" to the inanimate. If you were to look at something and you had no history with it, no past, no preconceived ideas of what it was or what it was for, what would happen? You would see it for what it really is, the purpose each part of God shares --- to help Itself awaken.

Meaningless

Because the vast majority of people believe the appearance of the world and not the reality that is behind it (God), we talk and debate about completely meaningless concepts. We discuss things like who is to blame in a certain situation ( this is pervasive), whether one political party should be in power, whether being gay is hereditary, etc, etc, etc --- all meaningless from a God and Unity perspective. When you rise above the false, there is no blame, no judgment, no debate of what is meaningless because it is false and does not exist. Do you want to help the world? Then raise your consciousness and become a bright Light that shines away the false. Then all "problems" --- the famine, the wars, the judgment, goes away, because darkness and falsity cannot exist in the Light.

Money and Abundance

Money is not your savior, nor is it the root of all evil, but the vast majority of people in Western society treat it one of these ways. It is a vehicle through which God can bless you, one amongst many vehicles. But in order for Him to do this, you can't put it before Him --- you can't make it your God. Nor can you fear it as if it will run out. When you do this, it does run out, because you have... created a belief around lack. Each of us is a powerful manifester, and what we believe, we create. Remember your Source --- God is your Source, not the vehicles --- the money, the job, the investments --- He blesses you through. The vehicles can and will change, and if you become attached to them and see them as your Source, you may suffer unpleasant times.

Remembrance

Jesus returned to Christ in his recognition as he remembered his Oneness with God. Christ is Love, and as each of us returns to Love, we walk the same path he did.

Changing How You See

Forgiveness is the vehicle through which you see that this world is not real --- forgiveness of others, forgiveness of experiences and events and the world itself, forgiveness of yourself, and forgiveness of God. For when you forgive, it helps you see from a different perspective. It helps you to leave that attack/blame/judgment mode and see with true vision of Unity and Love. When you do this, the appearance of the world, which is false, falls away, revealing His Kingdom.

Laughter

God loves to laugh, for He is joy. When you laugh, He experiences fun and joy, for He is expressing through you.

Sunday, July 21, 2013

All Fleeting

When we say this world is not real, we mean that there is nothing here of value. There is nothing here you should identify with or attach to, nothing here that you want to keep or use as a goal, for it is all fleeting. It is all forms that come and go. Only God, and your relationship with Him, is eternal. Be in the world but not of it.

Build It On A Rock

Don't try to live up to the expectations of society or the world. Don't look to these places for your salvation. This is building your house upon sand. This is building your house, your identity, on what is false. Can you even say what you are trying to live up to --- does it even matter? What is false is false --- it doesn't affect what is Real. Even if everyone and everything around you operates in the false, it doesn't change what is Real. It doesn't change what is within you, for that is Real. You can "pretend" that you are something you are not, but it doesn't change Truth. Build your house, build your identity, on the rock that is God. Build it on your divinity, on your Oneness with Him and all that is, even when everything and everyone around you "appears" to tell you something different.

Relationships

An authentic relationship is one where each person is secure in who they are and knows that they would still be that way, even if the other person was no longer in their life. In an authentic relationship, there are no games played, and there is complete honesty. There is immense gratitude for what the other person gifts them with in the relationship, but again, life is lived in the present moment..., and if the other person were gone tomorrow, there would be no regrets and this would have no effect on who they are. It is a given that if a person were able to interact in a relationship from this standpoint, they would have a strong recognition of their Oneness with God, because they are truly seeing God in their partner and in themselves. In order to know God, you have to release all falsehoods, which is authenticity. You may be thinking that Jesus would have to be in a relationship with Jesus to have full authenticity, and while this may be true, it is important to know the goal that you are reaching for and to strive for this in all of your relationships. Relationships are the quickest way we come back to a recognition of our Oneness with God, because others act as a mirror for us.

Trials or Opportunities?

Sometimes it feels like God has abandonded us or is punishing us if we are going through a trial or something we don't want to deal with. This is when a higher perspective is very important. God has only our highest good. He wants only for you to move closer to Him and remember the Love that you are. In order to do that, we have to shed false beliefs we have about ourselves and Him. Using terminology of trials or hardships is not the best. They can better be classified as opportunities of Love. When we see them from this perspective, we are able to understand what it is that He is asking us to do, and we are able to move through the "trial" in a much quicker fashion because we no longer resist it.

Judge Not Lest You ...

When Jesus said judge not lest you be judged, he was referring to the judgment you would bring upon yourself, not a judgment God would visit on you. For God is a God of Love, not judgment, and the Final Judgment will be one where God rejoices that we have returned to Him in our remembrance --- He will "judge" us as His most holy and sinless child. Jesus was referring to the psychological principal of projection. We project what it is we don't like about ourselves in an attempt to "get away" from it. But this is impossible, as ideas/beliefs never leave their source. When we judge someone or something, we are projecting our own self judgment --- the harsher the judgment, the more that person self judges, the more they see evil in the world, the more they see God as a punishing God, etc.

Your Faith

Your faith gives you the power to move mountains. Jesus told you so. You can also apply this power to keep yourself in bondage, to keep alive a false belief that you are limited, that you are only a body, that you are not His holy child.

What Do You Use As The Search?

A lot of people of fame and wealth are unhappy because they finally have what they think will make then happy and it doesn't do it. The vast majority of people are on an endless search for some thing. They want a better job, more money, a bigger house, fame, a better body, a better sex life, a better looking spouse --- the list is endless. If you never get what you think it is that will make you happy, you can justify your unhappiness by saying "well if I only had that."

A lot of these people are angry at God because he is not delivering the goods. The thinking is that if he loved them enough, He would give them what makes them happy. Do you see how the responsibility falls outside of them? They do not want to look at the possibility that happiness is their responsibility, nor do they want to look at the possibility that they already have everything which will make them happy and joyful. Many of those who get what they want in terms of money or fame are depressed, because they have achieved what they wanted to, and it has not made them happy. They cannot continue a search which has ended. This is why you see so many who are addicted, because they try to numb the depression and pain.

What they are truly looking for, what we are all truly looking for, is God's Love. Being in communion with Him is what gives us joy. Regardless of the outer circumstances --- whether you are rich or poor, old or young, black or white, president of the US or a homeless person --- you already have everything you need to be joyful. There is no search, because joy is intrinsic. It does not depend on anything "outside" of you, because all of this is temporary and fleeting. The fame, the money, the new house can all go away tomorrow. But your relationship with Him is eternal.

Like Little Children

When Jesus said that only those who were like little children would enter heaven, he was referring to innocence and non judgment. Judgment is the biggest attribute of the ego. When we judge, we cannot see the Unity of all that is. If you come from judgment, come from the ego, you will not "see" heaven. Heaven is within, but our judgment cuts us off from recognizing this. When we judge others, we are really judging ourselves. We are not to become like little children in a physical state but rather our mental state. When we see from Unity, we see with wonder, innocence, gratitude, and awe. These are attributes of how a child looks at the world until they are "taught" by adults to judge and to see the world as a cruel place. Each of us can return to that innocence and that wonder, opening the doors of heaven.

Guilt


Guilt establishes a need for and confirms the false belief in time. Guilt cannot be established without a past or a future. You feel guilty over something you have done in the past or something you anticipate doing in the future, even if it is in the next moment. Without guilt there exists only the present moment, the Now.

And You Don't


You ask God what you should do for all of your major decisions. Why would you not do the same for your minor ones? Do you not want to bother Him? Do you think you can handle the small ones by yourself? At what point do they become large enough where you ask Him? If you keep some decisions for yourself, even minor ones, you are saying that you know what is best for you in every experience, every moment. And you don't.

Your Salvation

Your salvation is up to you. It is not outside of you. It is not contingent on events in the world or what others do or don't do for you, as if they acted differently or said something you want to hear, everything would be okay. Your salvation depends on how you see yourself and your relationship with God --- how you see, whether you remember, the Oneness that is NOW and always has been. Whether y...ou acknowledge and KNOW that Christ is waiting to be remembered and reborn within you. That you are His most holy and blessed child, sinless and perfect like Him, as He created you from Himself. Rejoice, for your recognition of your salvation is up to you and eternally established in Him. Nothing "outside" of you can change this.

Giving A Gift


When you give a gift, especially a spiritual gift, it is only beneficial to the extent that you let go of the outcome. For instance, if you feel led by God to give advice to someone, let go of whether that advice is accepted. Once you have said what God has led you to say, your part is done. Also, you are not in a position to judge whether that advice has been accepted. Only God has the full picture to know when and to what extent your words were accepted.

Truth Versus Beliefs

Don't stand up for your beliefs. Stand up for your truth. There is a difference. We have beliefs, because we live in this false world. Your beliefs change, but your truth never changes. Sometimes it may appear that your belief aligns with your truth, but take a closer look. Don't use a belief as an excuse not to look at your truth, because there are times when you don't want to face your truth.

Past Victimhood

Acting like a victim is a defense you use not to proceed further into self awareness. If you are constantly blaming something or someone else, you will never pull that projection back in and see that you are blaming yourself. Yes, this is a hard realization, but you quickly go past this to a greater awareness of your divinity.

What Is The Will Of God?

Can we do something outside the Will of God? Since God is One, He is all that exists, and we are part of that Oneness. His Will cannot be separate from Him or the Oneness or you. If you do something that you "think" is outside His Will, is it truly outside His Will, or does it just appear that way, similar to a play on the stage that might appear real if you temporarily get immersed in it? Can you ever describe what His Will is?

Teaching and Demonstrating

In every interaction with others, you are always teaching what you believe. For you demonstrate through your words, thoughts, and actions whether you believe in illusion/fear/ego or Truth/Love/God. You not only teach the other person, you teach yourself, because we are One, and what you give, you receive. You may believe in fear and separation, which can only be temporary as Truth is all that exists (we can believe in something other than Truth, but this does not alter Truth or make the false real), but you can dispel this by teaching and demonstrating Oneness and Love.

Not From Lack

Pray from knowledge, not lack. For instance, instead of praying to feel His Presence, say a prayer of gratitude that you are One with Him and He is present with you always. Instead of praying to receive abundance, say a prayer of gratitude that His abundance is fully with you because you are One with Him and those are the gifts of your inheritance. You might say that you don't have that abundance --- your car is breaking down or you have lost your job. But you do have that abundance --- it is your RECOGNITION of this Truth that will create a physical manifestation of the abundance. As you say prayers of gratitude, feel that gratitude and joy in all parts of your Being. Feeling it, versus thinking it, puts it in a God space where it can manifest.

Cause and Effect

God is Cause and you are His Effect, His Love Effect. There is no other cause and effect, but if you believe this world to be real, you believe in another cause and effect. You see the events that happen and the people that come into your life as the cause, and you are the effect --- you are subject to the random experiences and people you encounter. You are subject (the effect) to the whims of the dreamer (the cause), but you fail to recognize that you are the dreamer. All that happens to you is by your choices that you make at a spirit level, which is hard for a ego personality mind to grasp when "negative" things happen. What is meant by the world passing away and the Kingdom of God within you? Simply that nothing exists but you and God, that He is the only Cause and you (the One Childship of which we are all a part) are His Effect in Creation.

You Judge What You Believe To Be Real

You only judge what you think is real. Do you judge what you have done in a dream when you sleep? Then why do you judge what you do in this "waking" dream? For it is also a dream, no different than your "sleeping" dream. The more you judge what you and others do in the world, the more real you believe the world to be (and the more fear this generates). We judge because we believe that we have separated from God and sinned against Him. We believe this to be true, but this is a journey we have not undertaken. How can you separate from God when only Unity exists? How can you sin against Him when you are One with Him? Is He sinning against Himself?

The Divine Speaks website (www.thedivinespeaks.com) has over 2050 statements and God will give you the "random" statement you need to hear at the time you need to hear it. Use the site with great blessings!

Rights and Wrongs

In Oneness and His Love, there are no absolute rights and wrongs. For it is only what is "right" or "wrong" for you in each moment as God leads you. What is "right" or "wrong" for you will change over time, just as it will be different for each person. The belief that there are absolute rights and wrongs goes hand in hand with the belief that this world is real, that we have separated from God and sinned, etc.

What about murder or rape? The more you know Unity and His Love, the greater any act like this, even hatred or dislike of another, becomes "wrong" for you. For you may want to make a distinction between murder/rape or just hatred toward someone, but there are no differences in illusions. These are all attacks that come from a mind which believes in separation. You choose either Love/God or fear/ego. Remember, everything that happens here is like a play on the stage. Someone who is asleep and not aware of their divinity may commit murder, but this is not for us to judge them as to whether that is "right" or "wrong" for them. That murder may become the basis for a huge opening of forgiveness and someone coming home to God. We never have enough info to judge anyone or anything.
