A Guide

Use what Jesus and the prophets and mystics did and said only as a guide to bring you into full remembrance, here and Now. You are in holy Communion with God in the one holy moment, and you can know that now. Do not delay any further, for this delays your joy, and do not live in the past, using it as a defense against experiencing what is Now.

Love Is ....

Love is infinite expansiveness. If you place limits on Love and its possibilities, you can't recognize it for what it is. Miracles are possible because of our Oneness with God, and they are only considered miracles in this false world, because in Heaven they are the natural order. If you expect limits, you will get limits. Anything is possible with God, and anything is possible with you because you are One with Him. It is our belief in limitation and separation that prevents us from seeing the infinite expansiveness.

Of This World

What is of this world will pass away. What is of this world will turn to dust. You can enjoy the things of this world, but they can never give meaning to you or you will be lost and in fear. You are not of this world. Anything of this world is not eternal. You are eternal.

Remember Why You Are Here

If you want to be known by the world for something --- a great lawyer, a spiritual authority, a great chef, even the negative --- a victim --- if you want to have that label or need that identity, you are not free. Freedom comes from knowing our Oneness with God, knowing that we play roles in this false world ONLY so that we can remember that Oneness and come back to His Love. This is your identity. When you operate in the world with this understanding, you see no separation, you have no fear, and you can create anything you want, because we are truly Co-creators with God. You recognize that you have always had the full gifts of the Kingdom.

WHO Would You Be?

What if you lived in a culture where you didn't have to achieve something, where you were honored simply for who you are, not what your position is, not what you have done, and not what family you were born into? How different would that be if you could give up striving? WHO would you be if you gave all that up? God is not reached through effort and achievement. God is recognized as within when what is falsely believed falls away.

What Your Partner Does For You

People get angry or depressed when they believe that their partner is not giving them what they need or want. But in reality they are not getting what they need from themselves, and they are projecting this on to their partner. If they never see this pattern, they will go from relationship to relationship, always projecting, and never willing to take a look at who they are and what they are projecting. Your spouse or friend is giving you a great gift, a mirror in which you can see yourself and realize what false beliefs you hold that need to be released.

Accept As Is

Accept everything as is. This especially includes those times when you are not centered in God, when you have judgment of yourself and others. Why would you accept something you are trying to change? Because when you accept it, you are doing so from a non judgmental space, your true Self. Paradoxically, this brings you to the place you wanted to be.

An Endless 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.

Stay Gray

Do you notice how when you view a situation or an encounter with someone, you want to make it clear cut what happened? You want to see everything in black and white, because this helps you to understand it and to feel safe. But in this dream of separation we are experiencing, everything is gray. Nothing is clear cut. We can view the situation from innumerable perspectives and angles, depending on the premise we start with. Stay in that open space of not knowing, and this leads to God.

Look Past


You must look past appearances. Appearances are constantly changing. What is Real does not change and is eternal. Behind all appearances is God, and because you are not separate from Him, you are eternally changeless. You are both the flow and the water in the River of Life. The flow is constantly shifting ( you have the appearance of change in this reality), but the water is always the water.

See And Be Willing

The tools for healing --- psychological, physical, mental, and spiritual --- are always there, always. If you feel that they are not there, you are not paying attention or refusing to see them. Drop the idea that it has to look a certain way. Healing can come in many forms, and God will provide the form that works best for you. But you have to open your eyes and be willing to see it. If you are not willing to follow through with the tools He gives you, then don't complain when your life circumstances don't change.

Reflected Back To You

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. This is especially true at this time for blame and judgment. Not liking how it feels is the impetus for you to change in how you interact with and treat others.

Worry And Doubt

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.

Judgment By Others

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.

Alone Versus Lonely

When you are in constant communion with Him, you can be alone but not lonely. When you don't feel His Presence, you will be lonely whether you are alone or with people.

Being Present

You cannot know God if you are not present. This means being present with yourself and being present in the Now. When we are present with ourselves, we don't run from ourselves -- we must accept ourselves as we are, all of the emotions such as anger and grief, the insecurities, the fear, the judgment, the guilt, etc. Only by fully feeling our emotions and by accepting what we see as "negative," can we transform these and see who we really are, which is Light, which is Love, which is God. When we accept and don't try to hide or run from them, we stay in the moment. The Now heals them, because God is present only in the Now. The Now dissolves the illusion of time, that there is a "past" and "future." We believe that there is a past, because all of our "negative" emotions and judgments are created from a past. All of these go away in the present moment, for God is there, and when the Presence of God is recognized within you, you are acknowledging your Oneness with Him and ALL that is. You have no problems, no past, no future, when you are in the Now.

Pray From ....

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 these are the gifts of your inheritance. You might say that you don't have 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.

Ripples Of Love

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.

Two Most Dangerous Words In English Language

Two of the most dangerous words in the English language are "I know," unless you are saying I know that I don't know. How can you know the full picture, the complete perspective? Many people believe they know, but they are looking through a very narrow focus. It is kind of like thinking you are seeing a piece of peanut brittle when in fact you have your face pressed up to the bark of an enormous tree, part of an enormous forest. The more you realize that you don't know, the more you will understand, and the more He can work through you. Because to enter the Kingdom, we have to become like little children --- humble, innocent, loving, in the moment. The stronger you hold your beliefs, opinions, and judgments, the more you THINK you know, but the less you really do.

Meaningless Thought

Do you realize your mind is constantly at war with itself? It is always arguing, judging, telling you what you should or shouldn't do, always separating things into good and bad. Do you realize this is insanity? This is the type of argument that goes on in your head --- should we drive a Ford or Chevy across the lake (there is no bridge and the car cannot magically convert into a boat). You are debating and making choices that have no meaning whatsoever. And we have "created" a whole world with no meaning, because what is going on in our heads, the meaningless thoughts, get projected out and create the world we see. So we think that the role we play and the events that happen in this dream are real, and this obscures us from seeing what is really Real.

Choose

You must choose between what is valuable (Heaven), and what is valueless (the world). Don't be deceived there can be compromise on this, that you can choose most of Heaven and just a little bit of the world. If you choose even one thing of the world, you have chosen the world completely. This does not mean that you don't enjoy the experiences and material goods of this dream, but it does mean that you are not attached and that you know these things of the world are not real. It means that you place no gods before Him.

Joy Shows You Your Path

You know the right path for you by following what feels good to you. This does not mean what feels good to the body, for this is temporary. It means what triggers your innate joy, the joy that comes from being One with God and sharing His joy. You would think that following your joy would be easy and self evident. But in this dream our mind has become confused and lost, and many associate joy with being a victim, with judgment, with anger, etc. Also, many are afraid of joy, as if it is too good to be true, or they are afraid that God will take the joy away as punishment for having "sinned" against Him. Joy is innate, natural, and eternal. You can and are meant to feel it 24-7, because it is inherent in the Kingdom of God, of which you are a part.

Pure Joy

When you watch a hummingbird, you are watching pure joy. You know that this is what it is meant to be and do. It is said that if you try to cage a hummingbird, it will die. Our joy comes from loving. This is what we are and what we are meant to do. When we don't do this, we do not experience His joy, and we literally kill ourselves spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. It may take a lot longer than it does with a hummingbird, but we are putting ourselves in a cage and closing the door.

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.

They Are Fanatics

The great saints and prophets of past and those who walk the world awakened today are fanatics. They are not fanatics about who is or who is not going to Heaven. They are not fanatics about being successful in a career, whether their favorite sports team wins, which party has political power, whether they look good. They are not fanatical about anything that is related to judgment of a person, group, or nation, for their view of Unity raises them above the limited perspective of judgment. But they are fanatical in their Love and compassion. They apply these equally to all, without regard to someone's religion, looks, status, past or current experiences, actions, words, etc. This is what Love does and IS. This is what God does and IS.

See How Often You Judge

When you go walking through crowds at the mall or an airport, what do you see? What catches your attention is something that stands out in the way someone looks --- very tall, very short, very overweight, very good looking or ugly. Your attention is also drawn to someone doing a behavior that is generally very strange or not something that is done in public, like talking to oneself or picking your nose, etc. So what happens then --- you make a judgment about that person based on what? Based on what their body is doing, based on an appearance. Each of us is so accustomed to doing this that we think it is normal, but it is not. You are making a judgment about something that is not real, not the essence and true reality of who this person is, which is a part of God.

To Know Thyself

To know thyself is true wisdom. That does not mean being smart or being well educated. You can be these things and not have the wisdom that comes from observing and witnessing yourself in your surroundings, in your relationships with others, in your relationship with Life, and especially in your relationship with Him. The relationship with the Self is the relationship with Him. To know thyself opens the Kingdom of Heaven, and you cannot find any answers outside of your Self. The journey of knowing thyself is one of immense joy, awe, glory, and gratitude.

Your Own Redeemer Or Crucifier

Because you have free Will, you are your own redeemer or crucifier. Her Love redeems us, but many choose to act as their own crucifier. All of these thoughts and beliefs which you use to self judge and crucify yourself are not real. Only your relationship with Her and Her Love is Real.
