God's Joy = Your 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 by what they do or say. That is Your joy and is your inheritance from Him.

A Different Kind Of Love

God's Love is sweet. It is not a harsh love that comes from a parent who also punishes --- this is how our ego minds see it based on our own personal experiences in childhood and how harshly we judge ourselves. His Love has no conditions because we were created to be loved and we are One with Him. His Love is pure joy and gentleness, with a hint of mischief and humor mixed in. There is nothing you can do, nothing you can say, or nothing you can think which would stop Him from loving you.

What If We Step Back From Our Belief System?

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.

G.I.A. --- God In Action

When you give to others, do you do it because you think this meets the expectations of your family or maybe society? Do you think this is what God wants from you? Do you do it because this makes you feel better about yourself, maybe that you are needed. Is there any motive? If there is any motive, then giving "takes away" from you. You know this state when you don't take care of yourself. You give but there is nothing to replenish. When you give from this place, resentment can build in you. When you give simply because you want to, you have an endless supply in which to give. This type of giving is spontaneous and filled with joy. It springs up in you, directly supplied by God, as you are the clear vessel through which He spreads Love. This type of giving is what you like to do, because this is what you were created to do. we create through the giving of what we are --- Love. As you give from a joy filled center, you are like a fountain with an endless supply of water. The more you give, the more you have to give. The act of giving is what creates more to give. This is G.I.A. --- God In Action. You are Self less, not self full.

Your Beliefs Versus Other's Beliefs

The more you live in fear, the greater your intolerance of other's beliefs of how they come back to God. The more you live in Love, the greater your tolerance of other's beliefs, because you are centered in God, and He is All. When you are at peace with who you are and your relationship with Him, why would you need to attack another person's beliefs? Beliefs are like roots of the tree, but we all originate from one Trunk, as nothing is separate from God. Recognize the one Trunk and then you will appreciate the many roots. And when you rise high enough in your perspective, you will see one forest and everything "individual" will disappear.

What Are You Truly Seeing?

You see what you want to see. Your eyes bring to you what fits within your judgment system. That is, you see what will bring you joy, even if that "joy" means sin and suffering --- many want to remain a victim. Getting your wish fulfilled by seeing what you want to see is what brings you joy, regardless of the content, because that is safe. Because everyone has beliefs and judgments that are unique to them, everyone "sees" something different. In order to see beyond appearances, beyond "good" and "bad," we must suspend those judgments and rise to a higher perspective than our individual beliefs. When we do that, we have affirmed Unity and there we find God.

Giving Up This World

We are meant to be in this world but not of it. This doesn't mean we can't enjoy the trinkets of this world, but we can't be attached to them or put them before God. 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 lies behind the appearance of this world are joy, peace, Love, and especially God.

Are There Any Bad Experiences?

Don't regret any experiences you have had. Even if it looks otherwise, everything serves a purpose. You would not be the person you are and have the spiritual awareness you have without these experiences. It is said that if you cut open a cocoon to let the butterfly out, the butterfly will die. It has to go through the difficult process of breaking through the cocoon to be what it is meant to be. The same is for you.

Do You See Love Everywhere?

Love surrounds you. It is calling to you, "see me here, see me there." The wind whispers your name. The trees and blades of grass bend toward you in Love, telling you that you are a part of that same Love, telling you that you are holy and reflect His glory. The birds sing your praises. This is all for you! You only need to listen. You only need to look. You only need to trust. Under the falseness that is this world, under the static and activity of what you have to do live in the world, this Love is there. It will always call to you, for you are its Beloved.

How Can Love Be Free?

A relationship without expectations is a divine one. When there are no expectations, no unconscious burdens, there can be true Love. For Love is only true if it is free, and to be free, it must not have strings attached. That is why our Love for God is free. He does not require that we love Him. We choose that, and that is why the Love we have for Him, and the Love He has for us, is so beautiful and holy.

Will You Continue To Project Blame?

Through self observation of your reactions and how you interact in your relationships, how you try to control situations, you can learn a great deal about who you really are. And this path will lead to great peace and joy. To know thyself is to know God. Are you willing to take a good look at yourself and take responsibility for what you put into the world, or will you continue to act like a victim and project blame outside of you, especially at others and at God?

The Purpose Of Everything In This World

The purpose of everything in this world --- our experiences, objects, people, nature, etc --- is not what the vast majority use these things for. The vast majority uses them to support a false identity of themselves, an ego identity that is not based on a divine nature. So the ego looks at something or someone and asks what it can get to support its identity --- what can this educational degree or job do for me, what adulation or false power or what affirmation of victimhood can I get from this relationship, etc. With the ego it is always about what it can get, because it needs to constantly reaffirm a false self. With our true self it is about what can be given to the whole, for Love gives, without conditions. The purpose of everything in this world then becomes one of forgiveness, for the world is badly in need of that as the collective ego appearance of the world is one of projected guilt and blame. When we see that the true purpose of this experience is one of forgiveness, which allows us to return to a recognition of our divinity and Oneness with God, to return to Love, then we no longer participate in the collective projection of guilt, and everything and everyone becomes a blessing to help us remember who we are.

What Does It Mean To Be Like A Child In Order To Enter Heaven?

When Jesus said that only those who were like little children would enter heaven, he was referring to innocence and non judgment. Judgment is the biggest attribute of the ego. When we judge, we cannot see the Unity of all that is. If you come from judgment, come from the ego, you will not "see" heaven. Heaven is within, but our judgment cuts us off from recognizing this. When we judge others, we are really judging ourselves. We are not to become like little children in a physical state but rather our mental state. When we see from Unity, we see with wonder, innocence, gratitude, and awe. These are attributes of how a child looks at the world until they are "taught" by adults to judge and to see the world as a cruel place. Each of us can return to that innocence and that wonder, opening the doors of heaven.

What Is The Beginning Of Wisdom?

To know thyself is the beginning of 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 God. The relationship with the Self is the relationship with God. 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.

How Do You Get The Peace Of God?

Are you willing to be wrong about something because you want peace above all else? Being right or wrong, becoming mad and seeing injustices, these are of the ego. Peace is of God. You must be willing to be wrong in all situations and with all people if you truly desire peace --- in other words you have to give up having to be right. The peace of God comes from rising above an ego perspective, allowing you to see that "right" and "wrong" are irrelevant because only unity, only God, exists.

How You See Yourself Is How You See God

If you see God as judgmental and punishing (or even withholding favor as that is two sides of the same coin), you will fear Him. The extent to which you see Him as judgmental and fearful is the extent to which you judge yourself and fear yourself, for if you judge your Self, you cannot know your Self as Love, and fear IS the absence of Love. Fear is the absence of Love, but Love is all that exists, and God is all that exists (of which you are inseparable), so fear is truly only an appearance that is dissolved when Love is recognized. The extent to which you recognize yourself as Love is the extent to which you will recognize your divinity and Oneness with God and All that is.

Living In Truth

This world has become characterized by an absence of Truth. Individuals have turned their face so far away from God, from their Oneness, that they think Truth doesn't matter. Truth is who you are! If you don't live in Truth, you deny who you are. But we can only go so far from the center, individually and collectively, before we snap back like a rubber band. We are approaching that snap back point. It goes farther than telling the Truth to yourself and others, although this is critical. If you don't take personal responsibility for your actions, your words, and even your thoughts, you have no grounding in reality, and this means that you will continue to do more of the same. Your power comes from your living in Truth. Do not give your power to those who don't live in Truth, which is many of the "leaders" of this world. When you live in Truth, more Truth will come to you. Others who live the same way will come into your life, and it will be a God filled life, full of abundance, joy, peace, and His Love.

Are You A Victim Or A Warrior?


There are only two ways of operating in the world and reacting to the experiences and circumstances life brings you. A victim believes they are always entitled to something. They believe they are separate from everything and what happens to them is random and that they can do nothing about it. They act "put out" and complain that this person, group, or even the government is doing something to them and is the cause of their misery. In order to elicit pity, they make others well aware of how they've been victimized, and this is how they create their identity. Many give their power away, believing that someone or something outside of them should and will take care of them, never lie to them, etc. By putting responsibility fully outside of themselves, they never have to take it.

A warrior takes full responsibility for their life. Warriors realize that they are part of a whole and that their life circumstances are created by a combination of their choices and also the choices of others which they have no control over. Even though they are affected by things outside their control, they recognize they have a choice in how they react to what happens to them. This recognition is where true power lies. They make the best of "bad" situations, not blaming others or groups but determining the best course of action to deal with the experience they are in. They don't try to elicit pity for their situation, but rather these are the people who are still spreading joy and love in the midst of adverse circumstances. They love life and others because they know that everything is One.

Difference Between Judgment And Discernment

Love makes discernments, not judgments. A discernment would say that it is not in your highest good to be around a certain person but that God expresses through them as God expresses through you and everyone else. When you judge someone, you are saying that they are not "good enough" in some form. You are not acknowledging the Christ in that person. Judgments are always created from seeing differences and putting those differences in a hierarchy where is one is better than another. If judgment is present, unity cannot be seen.

There Is Nothing More Holy Than ......

There is nothing more holy than reclaiming lost parts of yourself. This is why the words whole and holy derive from the same root. The reclamation process appears as both an emotional and spiritual process, although they are actually the same because God is Love and we come back to Him through the emotions.

We cannot be fully authentic and whole unless we have reintegrated with those parts we temporarily disassociated with. Often a child who has undergone some type of traumatic experience such as sexual or physical abuse, or even a child who did not feel loved by his or her parents, will dissociate in order to survive. The guilt, shame, anger, fear, grief, etc cannot be safely felt and expressed at that time and that five year old or eight year old or thirteen year old is "left behind."

When that person is an adult, the child with unresolved emotional issues is calling greatly for attention and love, and you often see their uncontrolled anger, grief, etc coming to the surface sideways like boiling water spilling over the top of a pot. That person is frozen emotionally at a younger age. This child is looking to reintegrate and become whole through proper expression of these original emotions and through the adult self coming back to nurture and love him or her.

Similarly, we have disassociated with spiritual aspects of ourselves. Because we believe we have sinned against God, we have unsuccessfully tried to shield ourselves from feeling the guilt and the fear that God will punish us. We are here at this time to work through these false beliefs, and we primarily do that through our relationships with others, as they act as mirrors for us.

The amazing thing is that as we work on our emotional reintegration, we are also working on our spiritual reintegration --- there is only one becoming whole. And the "adult self" that nurtures the left behind child is God.

If I Only Had This, I Would Be Happy

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".

Conflict Only Becomes Conflict ....

Conflict only becomes conflict when you allow it to be. It is just an experience or a circumstance, and if you don't allow it to become conflict by the way you react to it, then it won't become conflict. There is nothing inherently "good" or "bad" in our experiences here as everything is of God. Every experience, every relationship can be holy if we see it that way. The problem lies in that we apply our belief system, a belief system that is unique to each of us, to form a judgment about each experience we have. So we categorize and view things as good or bad based on a very distorted lens. What if that lens is taken away? What if we had no past? Then maybe we would see things the way they really are. Maybe we would see God behind all experiences, behind all appearances. It is not what we experience that matters. It is how we see it and what our reaction to it is. Are you brave enough to drop your judgments?

Stand Up For Your Truth, Not Your Beliefs

There is a difference. We have beliefs, because we live in this false world. Your beliefs change, but your truth, the Truth, never changes. There is one absolute Truth, and that is self evident. If it can be argued about or can change, that is perception, not Truth. Sometimes it may appear that your belief aligns with the Truth, but take a closer look. Don't use a belief as an excuse not to look at the Truth, because there are times when you don't want to face the Truth.

Is It Possible To Shut God Out?

You are what you eat. You are what you say. You are what you think. You can be a clear vessel for God to the extent that these things are not clogging the vessel. When you eat junk food or a lot of sugar or drink a lot of alcohol, that clogs your vessel. When you say hurtful words, especially speak things that are not true on purpose, when you are trying to demean someone else or have power over them with your words, that clogs your vessel. When you think negative thoughts, when you think hateful thoughts, jealousy, resentment, irritation, pride, or self pity, when you think that you are not lovable or capable or One with God, that clogs your Divine vessel. Of course, you cannot really shut God out, because you are One with Him, but you can BELIEVE you have shut Him out, and that prevents you from feeling His Presence.

How The Spiritual Search Is Used To Avoid God

What are you searching for? What are you using to avoid God? For those always on a search, always looking to something outside of them to "save" them, they avoid being still. They believe that if they are still, God will catch up to them, and He will see their "sins", punishing them. People use money, fame, good looks, athletics, education, politics, and many other "forms" as their search. They even use the "spiritual journey" as their search to avoid God. The spiritual journey is one of the most deceiving forms and one of the hardest for someone to see their true motives, because they have told themselves that they are really looking for God. In reality, searching for God through all kinds of "spiritual" forms is how they justify and avoid really finding Him.

How Can We Give Something Away Without Losing It?

To give something you must possess it. Everyone agrees on that. But in the ego's eyes, giving it away means losing it, because it sees separation. True vision tells us that giving it means keeping it and increasing it. That is the law of Creation. God created us through an extension of Himself. When you give something, you are giving to yourself, for we are all One.

Can You Live A Joy Filled Life 24/7?

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. To believe otherwise is to believe something not real, and there are a large number of people who do 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 it's likely 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.

Do You Judge Yourself For Not Having More Compassion On Others?

If you wish you could have more compassion on others, start with compassion on yourself. This will lead you into the compassion on others that you want. We project and judge in others what we don't like and judge in ourselves, thus we must correct at the source --- our self judgment. Our self judgment can only be released through God's Love and knowing our Oneness. This is how we release all that is false --- our fear, our guilt, our shame, etc. When we recognize ourselves as the Light, we are able to share it like a fountain that has an endless source (God). Compassion is the basis of Love, and since God is Love and All that is, we automatically exhibit great compassion when we see that we are not separate from another,for there is no difference between the compassion we have on another and that we have for ourselves. But we must start with looking at ourselves and our own healing.

Truth Returns To A Mind That No Longer Deceives Itself

For we are not only have Truth, but we are Truth, as we are One with God. But we have blocked our recognition of this Truth through the power of our belief. We believe, falsely, that we are the identity or role we play in this dream. We believe, falsely, that we are separate from God. We believe, falsely, that we have sinned against God and that we will be punished for that. The degree to which you have released these false beliefs is the degree to which you will feel God's Presence within you, and the degree to which you will know Truth.

Can It Really Be That Simple To Reach God?

There is nothing you have to do, nothing you have to add, to reach God. What an immense relief and joy that is. You only have to take away that which is false --- addition through subtraction, or recognition of the whole sum through subtraction. It is our false beliefs --- about ourselves, about Him, about our relationship with Him and that we have sinned against Him, about others being separate from us --- that blocks the recognition of His Presence. He is closer to you than your breath because you are One with Him. Can it really be that simple to reach Him? Yes, it is that simple.

Why Do You Not Manifest Abundance In Your Life?

Do you believe that God favors you and has great abundance for you? That His Kingdom is available to you in all its riches --- peace, joy Love, and even material abundance? Because you are One with Him and His Kingdom and because He expresses through you, all of this is available to you, unlimited in magnitude. So why does this not manifest in your life? You believe these truths, but at another level, you counteract or dampen this belief by negative or limiting beliefs such as "I am not worthy" or "God is a punishing God." Many people are not aware of these limiting beliefs because they run underneath their conscious mind, similar to a computer virus in operation and effect. As they used to say in the Mission Impossible series, your task if you choose to accept it, is to uncover these subsurface limiting and negative beliefs and to release them. It's not really a mission impossible, as this is why you are here on Earth at this time, and you always have a choice, but this choice is pretty clear. You can continue doing the same thing you have been doing, which is insanity and a hellish existence when you have these false beliefs running through you, or you can be a warrior and uncover/release them to reveal your innate peace and joy along with the keys to the Kingdom.

You Are Stillness

Think of a deep lake that has wind whipped waves on the surface but is perfectly still at the bottom. This lake is you! As you move through the world and take care of life, it appears from an outside perspective that you are these frenetic waves, but deep within you is perfect stillness that you share with God.

Why Do We Need To Forgive God?

Forgive God. Yes, forgive Him for the false beliefs and concepts, the "sins" you have laid upon Him, the belief that He could be a punishing and judgmental God. For He is pure and holy unconditional Love, as are you, because you are One with Him. Your concept of God is a projection of how you see yourself. If you judge yourself, as the vast majority do at a severe but unconscious level, this is the lens through which you see the world and see God. The harsher your self judgment, the harsher you see His judgment and punishment. The greater you believe you have sinned, the greater you believe He will punish you for your sins. Do not be the product of false beliefs formed through "negative" experiences such as abuse or unloving parents. You are not that, although you may see yourself as that. You are Love. This is the message Jesus came to remind us of. God wishes only to enter into a Beloved relationship with you, but He cannot force this if you hold Him back, if you push Him away because you falsely believe you are not deserving of His Love or that He will punish you if you get too close to Him. It is time to drop these false ways of seeing and believing. It is time for you to take your rightful place as a Son or Daughter of God. Only His Love will satisfy you --- nothing of this world can do that. His Love will cleanse you of all false judgments you hold about yourself and carry you to the highest mountain of Love, where you will live in the Kingdom --- not in the future in some other place called Heaven, but right here, right now.

You Know That Person

That person in your life who has angered you most, who has betrayed you, who has judged you, who has not loved and abandoned you, is a savior to you. That person has God expressing through them. That person is God coming to you to show you His Love for you. That may be difficult for you to hear, but Love is not doing this to you to punish you. He wants you to find Him, to find your joy, and you can't feel that joy when it is blocked by anger, resentment, bitterness, hurt, etc.
