In All Activities

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 prayer, 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.

Behind The Appearance

God is not complex. By definition, Oneness means the same, without differences. There are no opposites --- there is nothing that counters Truth. There is nothing that opposes God. What we see as differences is only an appearance, similar to someone wearing a mascot costume at a college game. This is hard for most people to grasp as they see a world of bodies, but like the costume, the body is not real. It will go back to dust, as will everything "physical." Everything you "see" is only an appearance, and behind all appearances is the Oneness.

Nothing By Chance

Nothing happens by chance. There are no coincidences. There is a purpose for everything. When a difficult period or tragedy strikes, you have to ask what is the purpose for yourself. This may be difficult to do when you are in the midst of it, but it is important to ask this question when you have begun to come out of the grief or the anger. The purpose is not for God to punish you or because you are a bad person. God is Love, and you are Love. And He is trying to help you remember that. This Love can be seen when adverse circumstances are viewed from a much higher perspective. Again, ask yourself what it is that you are being shown. Often it is a false belief or system of beliefs that do not serve you and block your awareness of His Presence.

The Heavy Lifting

Let God do the heavy lifting. Actually, let Him do all the lifting. The belief that you can do anything of yourself is false and actually impedes what you want to achieve. You are His hands and feet to implement what He shows you, but you must turn to Him for even the smallest of decisions. If you don't turn to Him for everything, how can build faith to trust Him on the big decision?

Impetus For Change

Sometimes you will have a belief system that needs to be released and it will exhibit itself in a certain pattern or behavior when you interact with others. You may have someone you interact with on a frequent basis do a similar behavior to you, because this acts as a reflection for you. You are able to see how it feels to have this behavior done to you, and it helps you realize that you don't like it and that you don't want to do that behavior to someone else. That is the impetus for change.

Simplicity

Do you know how much you crave simplicity? This world is awash in details and things we have to do. It is an information overload mess --- information comes from every source imaginable, covering every topic, with huge numbers of perceptions and opinions. There is even a tremendous and dizzying array of spiritual writers. How do you sort it all out? You don't. When you stretch a rubber band beyond what it can take, it snaps back. When you move too far away from your center, when you finally say I can't take the static of the world anymore, you "snap" back. This has nothing to do with the validity of what is written or talked about in the world --- a lot of the spiritual writings speak of Truth. It has to do with the contrast that exists and you finally recognize between the static of the world, which is worsening as fear increases, and the stillness that is you. For you crave that stillness --- you crave that simplicity. It doesn't get any more simple than you and God and your Love relationship.

Everything Has 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.

Under Great Pressure

A diamond does not become a diamond without a huge amount of pressure and heat that is created by the earth. Similarly, your process of coming home to Him is not without "pressure" and "heat". There are times on this journey when we are releasing false beliefs, and these times can feel very hard. Even after the diamond is formed, it is still rough. This is when the polishing takes place, and a tremendous amount of friction is needed for that. So that you can be made into a perfect clarity and brilliant diamond which reflects Light in an infinite fashion, you too must be polished. This polishing is done by other rough diamonds, often someone you are close to. As they polish you, you polish them through the friction of your relationship.

How He Is Praised

When you use your spiritual eyes, you will see that everything exists to praise the Creator. The birds sing His praises. The grass and the trees grow to Him. The sun praises through its warmth, the stars through their brilliance. Everything calls to His glory. By the very fact of your creation, by your very existence, you praise Him.

The Sun Is Always Shining

The sun is always there, even when it is obscured by clouds. Your Divine Self is always there, even when obscured from your true awareness by a belief in a false self. Let your true self shine through the clouds. Just as the clouds are not solid, what you falsely believe about yourself as an identity in this world also has no substance. The clouds will always dissipate, and the Sun/Son is always shining.

Know The Answer

You do not realize how powerful your thoughts are. They CREATE your reality. You, and only you, have responsibility for what happens in your life. Don't be a victim, or victim like experiences will be brought to you.

Giving Love

Receiving Love is nice, but what you really want to do is give Love. This is where your true joy, the joy of God lies. Every time you love, you reenact Creation. For we were created so that God could love us. When you love, you are experiencing His Love, His joy.

Eyes And Ears

You have to have the eyes to see and the ears to hear --- God's eyes and ears. Each of us has a belief system which distorts this. What we "see" and "hear" is altered or shaped by the prism of our belief system. If we step back from that belief system, then we can begin to truly see what is there. Humility is borne from the knowing that we cannot understand many things --- we have stepped back from our belief system. Humility then provides the opening for God to reveal Himself to us.

How You Think About It

If there is a past experience that bothers you, then think of it differently. Think of how you would like to remember it instead of how you currently do. When you do that, you bring it to the present moment, and in the holy now is where God is. This is where the healing for this experience can occur.

What If?

You know that event or experience with that other person that you wish you could go back and change more than anything? What if you knew that this person, that adult or that child, had come to you to be the vehicle for that experience to happen? What if you knew that you had preplanned the experience with that person? Would that change how you look at that experience?

A Joy Filled Life

Why can you live a joy filled life, even under difficult circumstances? Because joy is your inheritance --- you both have and are joy as God created you from Himself, and He is joy. To believe otherwise is to believe in something that is not real, and there are a large number of people doing that. Many many are going through difficult life circumstances, and it is easy to become trapped into identifying with these circumstances, identifying with a victim mentality. But you are Spirit, and these circumstances are only something you are experiencing, not who you are. And its likely that these circumstances will change when you recognize that you have been given the fruits of joy, peace, abundance, and Love as part of the Kingdom.

A False Identity

A False Identity

Why do the vast majority look outside themselves for who they are? They look to their education, their job, their spouse, their financial wealth, their body, their sexual prowess, etc. Some even look to "negative" identities like seeing themselves as a victim. It takes courage to look inside, because we believe that what we will find is heinous and sinful. Many people believe intellectually that God is within, but their belief often does not match up to their experience. Intellectually they may believe that God is a loving and non judgmental God, but the willingness to go inside and discover this is not there. For it takes willingness to wade through the false beliefs you have about your sinfulness. It takes courage to bring up, feel, and release the grief and anger that is present from the past, especially childhood. Only by doing this can you see that who you are --- inherently --- not what your parents or society told you are. Only by doing this can you come to see the Love that you are, and as you do this, simultaneously you see the Love that God is. And then He is there, within you, not intellectually, but for Real.

Heaven Is Here

Why is is that people are told they are going to a better place when they die? This comes from a belief in separation, a belief that there can be a here and there, a belief that God sits on a throne in Heaven. We are One with Him, with each other, and with All that is. There is no here and there, as there is nothing outside of you. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you and is Now. Jesus told us so. Experience Heaven, right here, right now, right where you are at.

Seeing The God Within

Seeing the God within someone who has hurt you or who has destructive behaviors does not mean that you allow that to continue. You must establish boundaries, which could mean that this person is no longer in your life. Can you forgive, seeing the God within, acknowledging your feelings or hurt, while doing what is best for you --- you make the decision with God as to what is best for you --- not from aner but forgiveness. We must never withhold forgiveness from anyone or any situation, especially from ourselves. There is only one Will of God, and what is best for you, what is the highest good, is also what is best for that person. Your highest good is what is their highest good (and vice versa), whether they recoginze it or not (often not). When you need to separate yourself from someone because their behaviors are not God affirming for you and you confirm this with God, then do it with great compassion for yourself and them. When you do this, you have created a miracle and you have put a lot of Light into this false world, which it so badly needs. Always allow Him to guide you in everything you do, because He knows what is the highest good for all involved.

Looking Outside Yourself

Look outside yourself. Don't look outside yourself for confirmation of who you are --- that needs to come from within as God is within you. But look outside yourself to take the focus from an "I" perspective. When we focus on "our" problems, difficult life circumstances, physical health or handicap issues, we reinforce these and we slip out of gratitude into a victim mentality. We lose the higher perspective we are Spirit temporarily experiencing certain circumstances in a body.

The more we concentrate on the "I" and the "mine," the more victimized we feel. How do we reverse this? Do something for someone else --- this puts us in a Unity perspective and while our "problems" many not go away, they are seen in a different light --- the Light of God. Run an errand for someone, say a kind word, maybe just be there to listen as they also go through difficult times. God will always give you opportunities to get out of yourself and help someone else, for this is what Love does.

Colored Glasses

Any bias you have serves as colored glasses which do not allow you to remain fully open to His Kingdom. A bias (which is a judgment) limits you --- you think it protects you, and you hold on to it, like it is gold --- but it limits you from seeing the infinite expansiveness that is God.

The Holy Moment

Do you notice how you only become fearful or anxious (and often guilty as well) when you are thinking about something in the past or something in the future? Watch your mind constantly do this. Recognize, even if it is for the fleetest of moments, when your mind is still and not thinking of the past or the future. Do you feel the peace inherent in this moment? This is your true nature, even if it is completely disguised by a mind which never stops spinning like a top and which has the purpose of taking you out of this holy moment. There can be no fear or guilt or judgment present in the Now because this is where God resides. As you increasingly witness these moments, as you are increasingly One with these moments, they will expand, and eventually you can "be in this world but not of it."

Unconditional

There is nothing you can do, nothing you can think, and nothing you can say which would cause God to stop loving you. That which you crucify yourself for is not seen by Him. Love looks past --- that is why it is unconditional. Unconditional means there are absolutely no conditions to earn His Love.

Feel It All

If you aren't willing to feel grief, you can't experience the joy of God. For God is joy --- this is our inheritance! We are Spirit, but we are temporarily living in a "reality" of matter with a body that has experiences. In this reality people hurt us, they "die," and at times we feel separate from God, our Beloved. So grief is a healthy and naturally arising emotion in this world. We come back to a recognition and remembrance of our divinity and Oneness with God through the emotions, for God is Love. If we block or suppress our grief and sadness, we block our joy as well, and we are not able to feel and experience "living and having our Being in Him."

Your Holiness

Your holiness is inherent. This can never be taken away from you because it comes from your Oneness with God. This is your inheritance! You believe you have become less holy (sinful) because of your actions, words, or thoughts, but you are deceiving yourself. Appearances deceive --- Truth remains. God is sinless. Your holiness cannot change because God cannot change.

I AM

Why are there so many versions of God --- God is this, or God is that? He cannot be limited by versions or distinctions. It is time for us to return to the one trunk from which all branches spread, the "I AM," which contains all versions, all paths.

Karma

Karma is illusory memory. It is not necessary suffering that must occur under the laws of the Universe. A God of Love requires no suffering. We are all part of the Sonship, but it appears that each of us is an individual representation of that Sonship. When that individual representation believes that it has separated from God, it also believes in sin and suffering, as well as time and space. When it operates under a belief in sin, it also believes that penance is required to even out the sin. Thus an act that it deemed sinful in one part of the dream must be counterbalanced with a "good" act. This individual representation remembers something in the past (time based) which must be cancelled out with a future (time based) act. So karma is integral to the illusion, maybe a "higher" part of the illusion, but still fully in the illusion. When this apparent individual part of the Son remembers and recognizes that it is not separate and that it has always been One with God, the concept of karma fades away. Any acts it committed in the dream were just that --- just misperceptions of a mind which falsely believed it had separated from God. There is no need to balance something that is not real. And the false belief in time folds into the Now.
