I am Therefore I am: February 2014

Describing the path of our Love with God, a path of remembering our Oneness with Him.

Friday, February 28, 2014

YOU are ...

You are the author, director, producer, and creator of what happens to you. That is the free will and cocreative power given to you by God. Many people will say that they did not choose a certain experience to happen to them. Of course, these experiences are always "bad," and therein lies the problem. Everything is viewed through a lens of good and bad instead of the God perspective that we are eternal and we have come here to remember our Oneness and Love relationship with Him through our experiences, "good" or "bad." Everyone around us, from our loved ones to those with whom we have minor encounters, has come into our life through our request to help us remember, and we serve the same for them. We each help the other to remember that we exist in a dream of separation and we need only to awaken from the dream. As Jesus showed, no one can truly "die," nor can we ever be separate from any other part of the One. This doesn't mean that we don't get angry or hurt when someone betrays us or we don't grieve when someone close to us dies. This is our humanness. But we also see these experiences as gifts and blessings for what that person gave to us to help us better see ourself, for the Love they gave us while in a body on earth, etc. This carrying of a higher perspective and the allowing of these experiences to awaken us is the marrying of our divinity with our humanness, a very holy union that produces a truly
authentic being.

Never Separate

The only reason you feel separate from God is because you believe you are separate from Him.

Addictions

Addictions are created from false beliefs people have about themselves being sinful, which creates the appearance and feeling they are separate from God, thus they look to something (the addiction) to fill that pain of being separate.

Nothing Can Substitute

We are a sugar addicted society, because we miss the sweetness of God's Love, but sugar cannot satisfy this longing. Nothing can, except Him.

So Many Disillusioned

Many of our young people have lost the ability to make choices from a right Mind. I am not defining this as right and wrong, because that implies absolutes, and there are no absolutes. What I am describing is the ability to discern what is "right" for that individual and what is "right" for that person's contribution to the whole. We have lost an entire generation that has grown up in an extremely materialistic and "what can you do for me" society. This has been modeled for them by society and often by parents who have become lost in this dream of unreality. What you see is individuals sleepwalking through this illusion with a complete absence of a center. They do not know what it means to operate from a space of Truth.

What Are You Truly Giving Up?

It is difficult to give up this world if you still think that you are sacrificing something, that you are giving up your happiness, even salvation. It is even more difficult to give up this world if you don't have full faith that what lie behind the appearance of this world are joy, peace, and Love.

Certainty

There is a certainty, not a belief, behind who you are. This certainty comes from God --- it is that simple. You are One with Him and He is your identity. Your identity does not come from what your job is, how smart you are, how you look, where you went to school, etc. Don't look to anything outside of yourself for confirmation of who you are.

Intrinsic Worth

You are not the role you play in this dream. You associate your worth with the appearance that you are something of importance to others, but this is illusory. Your self worth does not come from the role you play but rather it is intrinsic.

We Miss The Point

How often do we rush to get something done so we can be free to be still, pray, or be with God? We miss the point. The stillness, the paryer, and the communion in the "free" time is no different than the stillness, prayer, and communion available to us all the time, even when we are doing an activity.

Where Is Your Belief?

Jesus was able to heal those who believed. Because their thought/belief was in alignment with the Kingdom of God, those he healed were able to receive what he gave and the effect was complete. It was a round peg going in a round hole. When we believe that God has our highest good and that we can receive blessings, this is what will happen to us.

Do Not Seek ...

Do not seek any longer for the things you do not want. It sounds simple, like why would you ever seek for things you do not want, but that is what you have been doing all your life. In Truth, God is all you want --- you just don't realize it.

Never Forget

Throughout history there have been many atrocities committed on groups of people. When it is over, you have heard the phrase "never forget." When this is said, it is the same as saying never forgive. When we forgive, we don't forget what happened, but we don't dwell on it either. True forgiveness means to see the experience in a different light, a much larger perspective. There is no anger, hatred, bitterness, resentment, or self pity remaining when we truly forgive. If we look back, it is for this important reason. God wastes nothing. Out of every tragedy can bloom roses if we allow it. So when we look back, look back for the gratitude, for the roses, that came out of the experience and allowed us to move closer to Him.

You Can Always Go Deeper

There are an infinite number of steps on the ladder of remembrance of our union with God. Don't make the mistake of thinking that you are at the top, because you will not deepen into Truth and you will not be open to where God and the River of Life wants to take you.

Which Thoughts

How do you tell if your thoughts come from the ego or the Mind you share with God? Ego thoughts are fear based thoughts, even if they are "clothed" in something pleasurable. Ego thoughts always revolve around the past or the future, never the present moment. Your true thoughts originate from the Mind of God, of which you are a part. These thoughts are based in the present moment, and they always revolve around Love (compassion, gratitude, etc.). You feel a deep peace with these thoughts.

Preferences

What you "see" is what you "prefer" to see. Your eyes do not interpret. Your mind creates the colored frames through which the eyes classify what they see. These colored frames are based on your belief system, which is unique to each individual. To see what is truly there, which is Love, you must "declassify" what the eyes see. You must step away from your belief system and realize that it alters and frames everything in your life.

Expectations

Expectations arise from fear and are a way of trying to control the future. They come from not trusting and surrendering yourself to God. They take us out of the present moment, because expectations are always in the future.

Seeing Only Yourself

Heaven rejoices when you see yourself in others. Seeing a common interest reinforces unity and the truth that God is One, God is All.

Right And Wrong

Right and wrong are arbitrary and are based on perception. They are determined by you through your belief system. As your belief system changes, so does what you view as right and wrong. Further, everyone else has a different belief system and a different view of what is right and wrong. Anything that is variable is not of God.

Acknowledging Our Oneness

When someone mistreats others, they are doing it because they feel bad about themselves --- almost always at an unconscious level --- and they want to punish themselves for their "sins" against God. Because this is so harsh for someone to acknowledge and feel, they attempt to project this self hatred out and away from them, which of course is impossible. The only way to stop this dynamic is to recognize the lack of self love and that this can only be healed through God's Love and acknowledging our Oneness.

Sinless

To have a vision of heaven, all that you need to do is see others as sinless. All you need to do is see yourself as sinless.

What Is Valuable To You?

If you only had a short time to live, how would you spend it? Would you spend it with your loved ones? These relationships are all that is real in the world. The encounters between God and in God are written as a permanent record of Love. Love is the only thing you take from this dream into Heaven.

Meeting Your Self

As you move along the journey, you may lose friends with whom you have had long relationships. You will gain new friends, often total strangers, and it will seem that you are very comfortable with them after only one or two encounters. You fit with them like two adjoining pieces of a puzzle. When the timing is right, pieces of the puzzle go in easily, and you call to you those pieces with whom you have an interlocking relationship. You are very comfortable with them, because you are meeting your Self.

Accepting

When you have no regrets about the past, when you know that everything happens for a reason and that there is only perfection in the body of God --- regardless of the experience --- then you have surrendered and you are accepting of what IS, living fully in the moment and knowing His Presence.

Two Mirrors

You walk through the world as a mirror. Your mirror reflects what you believe. Your mirror can either be one of the ego and death or God and Life. When two mirrors who reflect God and Life meet, all of the angels sing, because this is Creation expanding. This is God meeting, remembering, and loving Himself, Herself.

Every Smile

Every kind word you say, every smile you give, is a seed of Love. These seeds grow into mighty oaks whose branches spread over a huge area, providing shelter, shade, and Life for all who encounter them. You never knew that something as simple as a smile could reach so far and create such huge ripples of Love in the body of God.

What Is True About You?

Someone else's judgment of you only bothers you because there is a part of you that believes it could be true. When you judge yourself, you are not sure of who you are. When you drop the judgment of yourself, judgment by others will have no effect on you.
