His Grace

When you come to know God and His gentleness and Love, you understand that His Grace is upon you. When you release false beliefs, you know that you are deserving of that Grace, and you know that His Grace can redeem and heal you of remaining beliefs and afflictions. Then it is just a matter of asking Him to use His Grace to do this. Ultimately, you know that without Him and His Grace, nothing is possible. For of yourself, you are nothing.

Abundance Through Faith

Can it be as easy to create abundance and "miracles" in our lives as Jesus did? Yes, but his was borne from complete faith and a knowing of his Oneness. As we grow and learn, as God helps us to remember how to move closer to Him in our awareness, we are given opportunities to build our faith. For if we were given everything, how would that build our faith? It is not that we are given things and that creates faith. This is the dysfunctional thinking of this false world. It is that we have faith and this creates what we want to manifest. Faith, intention, and feeling the joy of having what you want are the ingredients for you to create great abundance of all kinds. Once faith is complete, as it was with Jesus, you are "given" the Kingdom because you finally recognize that the Kingdom was never not there.

Relationship Manna

Our relationships are the manna through which we come to know God. They are the primary vehicle in this world through which we can see past appearances to the God within --- as we see the God within the other person, we will see God within ourselves. Too many people flee once the first sign of conflict arises in a relationship, especially in marriage, but they will repeat failed relationships until they become aware of what God is trying to show them. We must stay present in the relationship, even if that means feeling hurt and grief and anger. It is through our staying present and processing our emotions that we grow, because God is Love, and we must be emotionally open to know Him and that Love, to know that we are Love. Even if your spouse or friend does not remain present and open when conflict arises, this does not hinder your ability to grow from that relationship. In fact, these are your opportunities to learn true forgiveness and to bless that person for what they are giving you in terms of helping you to see who you truly are.

Seeing Past

It is very true that what you put into the world you get back. This also refers to how you see the world will be what you get back. If you see Love, you will receive Love. It takes courage and your Will to see past appearances, past judgment, past the hurtful words and actions of another, past the false, to what is really there.

The Path To God

When Jesus said "which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature," he was telling us that thought cannot take us to God. Joy, compassion, Love, and peace --- the gifts of the Kingdom --- do not originate with thought. They spring naturally from your true self and are felt. Because God is Love, the path to God is through our feelings.

Judging Another's Experience

When you judge someone else's experience, you judge it out of fear. How can you understand that experience for that person? Did you experience the same? It is difficult enough for the person having the experience to see a higher perspective, all of the purposes and long reaching entanglements for what happened to them. You certainly cannot know. You see only a small sliver and you view that person and their experience through your own colored glasses --- your experiences, your judgments and preconceived notions which have colored how you see things. When you take away the judgement, what remains?

Ask To Be Shown

It is true that God is a God of Love and abundance and will bless you richly, but this can only happen IF you believe this to be true. If you have beliefs that run counter to this, such as "I am not worthy" or "I am a sinful person who deserves God's punishment," these beliefs have to be cleared before God can truly reveal Himself to you. Many people hold these false beliefs about God and themselves, but they do not realize this, as these beliefs run under the surface like a bad computer virus. If your life does not reflect the richness that God has for you, then ask to be shown these limiting and negative beliefs and be willing to release them.

You Meet Your Savior

You meet your Savior in every day, in every encounter you have, as that person reflects God for you, if you allow them to. When you are talking to someone, let them feel the gratitude you have for them being your Savior.

What Love Does

A flower gives you its fragrance, its beauty, its essence, and it asks nothing in return. This is what Love does. It is ego or false thinking to believe that you if you give something, you have lost it, that sacrifice is possible, that there is only a limited amount to go around. The Kingdom is unlimited. What you give, you receive back exponentially because you are giving to yourself. This is why Love, and you are Love, gives without regard to Itself and without expectations. In order to be the Love you are, you must give as Love gives.

You Are Not ....

You believe that the role you play in this dream is who you really are, and this is false. You are not the forgotten grandmother, the high powered attorney, the abused spouse, the esteemed politician, the middle child. Each is just a role you have agreed to take on to act as a vehicle so that you might remember and awaken to who you really are. And wee play these roles in close relationships to others --- our family members, our friends, our coworkers --- so that through these relationships we can we can help each other remember and see God within ourselves and the other person. Often our relationships involve conflict, but it is only through pressure and heat that a diamond is formed.

The Path Of No Resistance

Envision your journey through life as the River of Life that takes you to different scenery (experiences). You can float effortlessly on the River, or it can be a trying experience where you fight the current. Unfortunately, many people are fighting the current now. As we progress on the path of remembrance back to God, it is a blessing when we understand the path of least resistance. This involves some dead ends where we think we are on the main current but we are on a side current that brings us up against the rocks on the side. These are not wasted experiences --- we learn what is right for us through contrast, by taking the wrong current. If we learn from these "wrong" experiences, we come to a high path --- the path of no resistance. This is where we have abandoned any pretense of thinking we know what is best for us and we allow the main current --- the God stream ---to carry us without any effort on our part. After struggling for so long against what IS, we finally recognize that of ourself, we are nothing and that our effort actually impedes us floating effortlessly. This is called full surrender, and this is the only place you can find His joy and peace.

Within You!

It is false to believe that another person can be an intermediary for you with God. It is false to believe that anyone knows more about Him or is closer to Him than you are. Why would you look outside for what is already within you?

Gentleness And Compassion

Gentleness and compassion must start with you. If you cannot do this for yourself, you cannot do it for others. Once you have learned to do it for yourself, you will be like an endless fountain of Love, compassion, and peace that flows to everyone you encounter. God powers this fountain, and it is infinite, because He is infinite. You can give fully, without taking away from yourself, because He is the Source.

It Is Up To You

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 has always been. Whether you 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 salvation is up to you and eternally established in Him. Nothing "outside" of you can change this.

Walk In Another's Shoes

Sometimes we are given experiences in order that we may see how misguided or cut off from our center we are. We learn to turn from judgment, where we have judged others who have a certain experience or condition, to compassion, where we truly see what it is to walk in another's shoes because we now must deal with the same experience or condition. It is easy to judge another from afar, but it is a whole different story when the "afar" becomes us.

Being In Attention

Paying attention is a worldly concept. Being in attention is of God. When we are in attention, we are fully in the moment, fully engaged with what we are doing and no sense of time and space. Everyone has been there at one time or another. Athletes call this the zone. This is where we fully harness the gifts of God, where true creativity, innovation, and answers are produced.

How You See It Brings Understanding And Peace

Instead of seeing that person as attacking you, can you see them as asking for or calling for Love, calling for Union, and this is the only way they know how to express it? And can you not react?
Yes, it is difficult to do this when you feel blamed and attacked, but this is how you make huge strides in your path back to God.

We Must Find Meaning


We must find the true meaning of our creation and why we are here. Technology, money, and materialism have become our gods. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the things of the world --- the question is how do we use them. They have replaced the only thing that will give us true joy, which is living and having our being in Him. Because nothing of this world can replace the longing and Love we have for Him and which we feel at a deep level, we unsuccessfully try to up the ante and we become obsessed with the latest gadget, with a bigger house, with needing to accumulate more money when someone already has more than they could ever use. We can only drive one car at a time, sleep in one house, wear one pair of clothes.

Is there any question why drug and alcohol use and addiction is rampant, why many people are depressed and suicide is skyrocketing? Our spirits have to be nourished and no phone or drink can do that. Many are afraid to be still, because if they slow down for even a moment, this hopelessness will become apparent. Do you spend all your spare time surfing the Internet or playing games on your phone? Or do you spend it trying to connect and commune with Him?

Why The World Appears Like A Mess

The world we see is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. It is a composite of each of our individual self judgments. That is why the world's appearance is such a mess. Many people believe that they have sinned against God, and it is this harsh self judgment which collectively gives the appearance of evil, hatred, chaos, greed, and all that is NOT God. Each of us has personal responsibility in this, because we are One. To change the appearance of the world, change yourself, or rather change how you see yourself. When you know that you are His holy Son or Daughter, that you are One with Him, like Him in all respects, then the angels and all of Heaven will sing your praises. For you have become a vessel of Light through which He can bring His Light to others. When enough have done this, this world will truly reflect Heaven on Earth. For His Kingdom has always been here --- it just needs to be revealed through your Light, His Light, which are one and the same.

If Only I Had ...

If only I had this amount of money, I would be happy. If only my family would pay me attention, I would be happy. If only I had a soulmate, I would be happy. If only I had a body that looked like a model, I would be happy. If only she would change, I would be happy. If only I had a new car, a new house, ... if only, if only. Wow, happiness can be found in a lot of places --- except in you. "If only" may come, but by then you will be on to the next "if only". If this is your pattern, this is your defense and wall you put up against finding God within.

Greater Joy

When you recognize that you have joy in doing a certain thing and you continue to do that, you are given increasingly more opportunities by the Universe to do that. Joy begets more joy. And along with that joy comes great abundance.

Praying Without Ceasing

When we are told to pray without ceasing, this does not necessarily mean that we are constantly saying a prayer in our thoughts. This is not practical as we move through the world. But what is possible is to constantly keep our attention on God. To remember Him and to continually call in His Presence is the highest form of prayer, because it is communion. You can do this in every moment, even when you are doing tasks or talking to someone. The more you do this, the greater will your peace be.

You Are Whole

There are these parts of you that you have cut off from yourself. You hide them, because you fear them. You hide them, because you fear others seeing that side of you, and you especially fear God seeing this part of you. These shadow parts, these childhood parts that are frozen at the time of abuse, are calling to be loved and integrated. There is nothing to fear from them --- they are a part of you. They love you, and you love them. If you suppress them, you are not whole emotionally. Do you often react like an eight year old having a temper tantrum? Do you operate in the world as if no one loves you, just like your five year old felt? Don't be afraid. God is with you always.

Like Little Children

Jesus said to become like little children. Little children are humble. They are innocent. They live in the moment, not thinking of the past or worrying about the future. They find joy in the most simple of things, and they laugh all the time. Those who are like little children can know God.

Be Open

Faith without logic is like being in a boat without any means of propulsion except your hands as oars. You must remain open to God expanding your awareness and understanding. If you remain fixed in your beliefs, He cannot take you higher on the mountain.

Reborn In Him

Remember that you will always be presented with circumstances, experiences, or relationships that make you feel uncomfortable, especially in the times that we are now. These are meant to help you grow, for you to see what is holding you back in terms of false beliefs about yourself and God. These are gifts that have been brought to you to help you see past appearances. When you are reborn, it is not an easy process. The birth canal squeezes you and sometimes you move so slowly it seems that you are not making any progress. But you are, and He is with you through every trial, as you are being reborn in Him.

Universal Operating System 101

When you are grateful, "good" things happen. When you focus on the negative, "bad" things happen. This is basic universal operating system 101. You can always find something, no matter how small, to be grateful for. Start there.

Be Still And Know That I Am God


"Be still and know that I am God." Stillness is an absence of thought, the thought that comes from your mind. Have you ever witnessed your thoughts and how crazy they can become? How they jump around from subject to subject with complete randomness? How they are always based in the past (what happened) or the future (what will happen), never the present moment. Something this random and chaotic can not come from God. Within stillness there is thought. This is the thought that comes from God. This is the thought that comes through as our intuition, our gut feel, our hunches, our knowing. This thought arises naturally without effort, without fear. But it can only arise when it is not crowded out by the other type of thought. For the vast majority, the thought from their mind is there 99.999% of the time. This creates a situation where one places validity on these thoughts --- kind of like the idea that if there is smoke, there must be fire. But these thoughts are not valid. Only the ones from God are, and an amazing thing happens once you start to realize this --- more of the God thoughts come in. As you withdraw belief in what is not real, it begins to fade away. Be still and know that I am God cannot be any more clear. It is not written as a parable, but rather it is a simple instruction through which you can change your life.
