Acceptance

When you surrender, you no longer fight against what you don't like. It is this acceptance of your situation as is that creates the opening for the situation to change.

What Ways

What ways do you search for God? Do you like to travel to far away places? Do you like to have peak experiences like climbing mountains? Do you look for Him in food or a bottle? Are you obsessive about exercising? Do you look for Him in relationship after relationship? The world has come up with some pretty interesting and some pretty destructive ways to search for God, to search for only what He can give to you, and to drown the sorrow of not having Him. But you do have Him. He expresses through you. You never need look outside of your Self. There is nothing "good" or "bad" with anything of this world --- we can enjoy all of it. The question becomes whether it becomes your God --- is it put in front of Him or used as a defense to keep you away from Him. Don't turn your face from Him any longer.

Unlearn

We cannot learn our way back to God. For we are One with Him and He is ALL. Oneness goes beyond learning and perception. Truth is self evident --- it is known, not something to be perceived. Truth is God. Truth is you. You know thyself, not perceive thyself, although the vast majority of people live in a perception of who they think they are, not who they really are. The way back to God in our remembrance (for we have never left Him) is to unlearn. We must recognize what is false, what is of the world, and not of Him, and then this reveals Him.

His Joy

You have His joy when "you" get out of the way. Your self blocks His joy; your Self feels His joy. When you feel His joy, you are most like Him. No one can take your joy away. That is Your joy.

What It Takes

To possess all that matters, let go of all possessions that do not matter. To understand all that is, let go of all knowledge and learning of the world. To be who you are, stop pretending to be something or someone other than who you are.

Same Journey

The discovery of your Self is the discovery of God. They are one and the same. Just as you see a reflection of yourself in a mirror, you must see yourself in Life, how you interact in your relationships, how you react to your experiences. It is this introspection and observation which leads to Self awareness, which is awareness of Him. And this is a process, a journey, that never ends.

You Can't Be Waiting

How do you surrender something that you really want? You can really want it and feel good about it happening. That is how you create it. But you can't be waiting for it. You can't think that you are incomplete without it happening. So you stay in the present, knowing that you are complete, perfect, and whole as you are, while at the same time feeling the gratitude of receiving this other thing that you want.

Vision

When we are told "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God", we are being told of a spiritual seeing. This vision is not of the eyes --- it is of the heart. Created in Love, by He who is Love, we "see" our Father through Love. This seeing is outside of time and space. It is infinite in scope and exists only in the eternal, holy Now.

Like Little Children

Humor, especially at yourself, is very important on this path. Do you see how children are naturally happy? That is for two reasons. First, they have recently come from God, and second they are not fully burdened down with all these crazy thoughts that adult egos generate. Jesus was very literal when he said to become like little children.

Be A Warrior

Self judgment stands in the way of you seeing who you truly are. Judgment stands in the way of you seeeing who that other person is. The stronger you judge them, the more you want to use them as a shield from knowing God. For they are One with Him, as are you. It takes a warrior to have the courage to release judgment of all people and situations and to know that you no longer have the illusion of control.

Truth

Jesus said "know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." Truth is self evident. If it is something that can be debated, it is not Truth --- that is people's perceptions about what Truth is, not Truth itself.

Dream!

Are you still dreaming? Not dreaming at night, but dreaming as you did as a child? When we dream, we create. Our thoughts are manifested. Sometimes it takes some time for the plant to shoot above ground once the seed is planted, and this teaches patience. This is your dream. You can have and do anything you want, but you must continue dreaming.

Have You Noticed?

Have you ever noticed that when you are fully joyful, your whole attention is given to that? When you are in awe at the beauty of something, your whole attention is in that. At these times your mind is not preoccupied with worry or problems or doubt. Which do you think is more real --- the times when your whole attention is given to joy or beauty, or the times when you are in worry or doubt? Even if you experience the latter the vast majority of the time, this does not make it true. The way to lessen the grip of worry and doubt is to acknowledge, as it happens, that it is not true.

What If?

What if you lived somewhere where achievement, looks, prestige, position and family of origin didn't matter? Where you were embraced and loved just for who you are. Now do you see how God looks at you?

In Christ's Name

When you pray for something in Christ's name, what does that mean? Christos means Love in Greek. Jesus became the Christ, He became Love, through his remembrance and recognition that he had never left Oneness with our Father. You can pray to Jesus, and that will always be effective, but if you pray in Christ's name, you are praying in, within and to Love. When you pray in Christ's name, you are also praying to Jesus, because he is One with Christ, as are you. When you pray in Christ's name, you are reinforcing that which you are --- Love.

Look Behind

Don't be deceived by appearances. A tree looks dead in the winter but is very alive. Behind all appearances, behind all the evil and greed and separation, is God and Unity, for only God exists.

Gentleness

Gentleness comes from feeling God's Presence. Harshness is experienced when His Presence is not felt. When God is not felt, there is always self judgment, which is very harsh. His Presence turns the self judgment into self Love.

One Truth Through All

We are all receiving the same truth and each of us has the potential to be a great teacher and savior for the world. How can it be otherwise when we are One? It is not how much you have. It is how much you take away, how much ego you let go of, which reveals how much Truth shines through you.

Our Highest Good

Many people belive that God either punishes them or withholds something from them. Nothing could be further from the Truth. God is a God of Love and has given the Kingdom to you, in all its abundance and glory. Few people know what will make them happy, so they ask for trinkets of the world. Few know what will truly bring them joy, which is a Love relationship with Him. God withholds nothing from you that will bring you His joy, His peace, and His Love. If you feel that you have given your will to God and you are not experiencing the fruits of the Kingdom, He is likely pulling you closer to Him so you can experience at a deeper level. There is another layer of false beliefs you are shedding. You are given things when you are ready. We think we know what is best for us, but this is fool's thinking. Only God knows what our highest good is, and we need only to trust Him and get out of the way.

How We All Identify

Each of us identifies ourselves using "I." We say "I am angry," or "I am going to the store." "I am smart," and "I don't like what you are doing to ME." When we continue to identify ourselves this way, when we continually reinforce it, no wonder that we believe that we are separate from Him. And no wonder why many people believe that He is sitting in a faraway place called Heaven. And no wonder why many people assign Him the same qualities as we perceive in ourselves, like judgment, anger, conditional love. He is not that, and neither are you. You may perceive that, and this makes you believe it, but perception is an appearance, not Truth. Do not believe this about yourself or Him. You are not separate --- you are One with Him/Her/Your Creator --- whatever you want to call Him that stirs your heart in Love. And you are One with everything and everyone. You are not limited by time and space --- these are human ego constructs. They are not of Him nor of you.

Affirmations

Affirmations are only useful if you truly feel them in you body at the same time you say them. If you say an affirmation that you live in joy and gratitude, a feeling of well being and gratitude should rise up in you energetically. One affirmation felt in the body and the heart will be infinitely more powerful than the same one said thousands of time in your head in a rote manner.

Free From Conditioning

Your learning, your beliefs, has come from your parents, your teachers, religion, and society, all sources except you. What if you had not been taught anything? What if you were just open to learning through experience, from you experiencing your Self?

Put It In Drive

If you really want something to happen but you are fearful of it not happening, then you are drawing the fear to you, and it won't happen. To put it another way, you are giving the power of your thought to believing you will not have it happen. It is like giving gas to the car when in reverse instead of drive.

All That Is

God created a Son, of which we are a part of that Sonship, so that He could have an experience of Himself as Love, for God is all that Is.

Beauty

What is beauty? Surely it is not just an outward appearance that follows what society thinks is beautiful? Could beauty be so transient? Beauty is innate. It is self evident when seen with the eyes of God. Appearances change, but beauty remains. Beauty does not need to be announced or bragged about. If someone needs to do that, they don't recoginze their innate beauty. A rose is beautiful, not only because it is a pretty flower when it blooms, but because it proclaims its God essence always, even when it is dying. Regardless of your looks, your age, your physical or mental condition, you are beautiful, because God shines through you.

A Mirror

If you are having a particularly difficult time seeing God in a specific person or group, realize that you are resisting seeing God within yourself. That person or group is only acting as an angel, a mirror so that the resistance can be reflected back to you.

Through New Eyes

You are not going to change the world by seeing it as real and trying to fix it. Because when you see it as real, you cannot help but come from fear in your actions. And as the world and its systems crumble, as the poverty, famine, wars, blame, control, and greed worsen, it is certain that your fear will also increase. You can only change the world by seeing it through new eyes. And you can only do this by seeing yourself through new eyes. Work on yourself. Work to clear and release the blocks and false beliefs which prevent you from knowing your divinity and Unity with all that is. When you see the world with new eyes, fear will no longer be your filter, and His kingdom will be revealed. Then you will know best how to help the world through your words or actions. Remember though that a smile or kind word to someone in need may be more powerful than a large donation to a charity. God is revealed in the simplest of gestures from the heart. In all things be led by Him in each moment and be without judgment as to the words or actions He directs you in.
