Forgiveness

Forgiveness comes naturally when you no longer want to be a victim. It is as if the sun breaks through the clouds and illuminates you and everything you see. You have simply moved to a higher perspective where Love sees past grievances, hurts, errors.

Seeing God

If you are having a particularly difficult time seeing God in a specific person or group, realize that you are resisting seeing God within yourself. That person or group is only acting as an angel, a mirror so that the resistance can be reflected back to you.

What Is True Joy?

Recognize what brings you joy. Joy does not go away. It is not the excitement that ebbs and flows with the toys and trinkets of the world. That is ego based. True joy comes from God. True joy comes when we are just who we are, not some false identity that we pretend to be in this false world. True joy is natural --- it is our birthright. There is nothing we have to do to feel it except stop pretending to be something false. When we are a clear vessel for God, joy arises naturally, because we give selflessly, without taking away from ourself. We are powered by an endless Source, by God. This is what Love does --- it gives of Itself endlessly. It is very simple. Recognize what gives you true joy and then do more of that.

Why Do You Deny Love?

You are Love. Thus you can only express Love, feel Love, and be Love. Because you fool yourself into believing that you are not Love does not change the fact that you are Love and that only Love exists.

A Masculine God?

In these statements, God is often referred to as "He." Does this offend you? Language should not be a barrier to God, Him, the Creator, The Divine, She, Great Spirit --- whatever you want to call "Him." Language is one level removed from God as we live and have our being in wordless communion with Him. The only barrier to God is when someone has a belief system that is set in stone and does not allow for Him to show you who He really is. Allow yourself to flow with the River of Life. A river changes course at times. Allow yourself this movement, which is only possible when you are not rigid in your beliefs that it has to be a certain way.

Is God Always Talking To Us?

In everything and everyone we encounter, without interruption, God gives us signals which show us what we need to do to move closer to Him. This encompasses what we need to do in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual areas. There are times when we go through difficult periods but we are able to see the ups and downs from a larger perspective of our full journey, and we know that he difficult period that we are in is temporary. As we learn to be aware of the signs He give us and we follow these with joy, even if we don't understand them, our life moves with great ease, the difficult periods become fewer, and the most amazing doors open to us. But when we are in a difficult period and unable to see this hard period from this larger perspective, we may have ignored and resisted the signs and paths He has presented to us. If we have resisted them, the signs become stronger --- He does not want you to go through a personal disaster for you to hear Him, but often this becomes the only way that He can get your attention. It is never too late. We can always move on the path that He has illumined, although it may initially seem like a scary choice. He will always provide the answers and the help. Life is meant to be easy and joyful --- we are the ones that make it difficult.

Things Not Seen

2 Corinthians 4:17 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." If you do not see Him, you are not seeing what is Real. You are seeing an appearance, something temporary which will pass away. You are watching a play on the stage and believing it is real, and this is where your fear comes from. When you know what is eternal and Real, which is God, then you know your safety is in Him and what happens in the world cannot affect you. You can be in the world but not of it.

How Can You Judge?

Do not make the mistake of judging others based on your belief system. You are but a tree in the forest and your view is only as that tree, not as the whole forest. With grace maybe your perspective will eventually expand to a higher view of the forest, but for now, your view is limited. You cannot even make an accurate assessment of yourself for God sees you in a completely different way than you judge yourself. Knowing that you do not have the perspective nor the capability of judging others brings you to great humility, and humility is of God. When you are humble, you truly can help others, because you are not coming from a space of judgment and you do not have an agenda. God can lead you in the moment as to what to say or do that is in the best interest of that person, yourself, and the whole.

Don't Be Part Of The Herd

The world tells you WHAT to think. You must separate yourself from that and learn HOW to think --- how to think on your own, free of other's beliefs, free of dogma, free of the collective and mass consciousness.

Created From Love By Love

You love your creations as yourself, because they were created out of Love, and they are a part of you, just as you are a part of God. God loves you as Himself and you were created so that there would be an object of His Love and He would know Himself as Love.

Resisting The World

When Jesus said to pay the Roman taxes, he was saying to observe the laws of the world as long as they do not interfere with the laws of God. When we fight with something in this false world, we become more enmeshed in the world, because we are giving power to our belief that the world is real by resisting something in it. If it is not real, why would you need to resist it?

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.

How Do You Change The Circumstances Of Your Life?

You reveal your beliefs through demonstration. If you believe in separation, then you will demonstrate that, and you will have more of that. If you believe in only Love and unlimited abundance from God, then you will demonstrate that, and you will have more of that. How do you change what is brought to you? Change your beliefs.

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. Only Truth is absolute, and perception is not Truth.

It Never Stops

Whether you are feeling weary, excited, scared, joyful, or guilty, God is with you through All. Consciousness has no beginning or ending and never stops the expression of Love. God never stops being in Holy Communion with you, regardless of what your body is doing or feeling, for you are One with Him. The essence you share with God, which is all that you really are, has never left its moment of creation. When you know this with certainty, fear is no longer possible.

What Does It Mean That God Has Our Highest Good?

When we say that God has our highest good, why can that be comforting to you? It means that we accept the circumstances of our life, even if they are difficult, because we know that we cannot see the whole picture. We are but a tree in the forest. We may prefer that these circumstances change, but we do not resist where we are at, because if we are present where we are at, we are with Him. Our only focus should be faith in Him that He is taking care of us, even if we do not understand why something is happening to us or when it will change. In fact, acknowledging that we do not understand leads to grace and humility throughout our life.

How You View .....

How you view individual situations and the world is a reflection of how you view yourself. All is One. There is nothing "external" to you. If you view things "negatively" then you have negative beliefs about yourself, and those are the colored glasses through which you see the world (which is you).

Where Does Your Abundance Come From?


You may be the richest person in the world, but you will not feel safe or satisfied unless you have a relationship with God and you know that He is your Source. If you believe this abundance comes from the world, this supply can and probably will change in an instant.

How Do You Stay Centered In God's Will?

Staying centered in God versus the ego is about your Will and what you set as your intention. It is also about doing what feels good to you. When you are centered in God and doing His Will, there is a lot of joy and peace present. Fear cannot enter. So simply following the peace and joy will keep you from straying off His center. This is God's peace and joy, which is different from the "joy" or excitement the ego experiences. When you live in the ego, you experience both ups and downs based on what happens to you, "outside" events, etc. This is a foundation of sand and you will always be thrown about like you are riding a roller coaster. The peace and joy of God is constant and can never "leave" you because you are One with it --- it is your birthright.

How Do We Reach Our Natural Joy?

Happiness comes when we no longer strive to be happy. It is the striving, the desire to be something or have something different, which blocks your awareness of the natural happiness or joy that has always been there.

Your self worth is not based on what you look like, how wealthy or smart you are, what kind of job you have, and even whether your spouse or significant other loves you. Your self worth is based on your relationship with God.

What Makes Your Heart Sing

Do only that which makes your heart sing, because when you stay centered in this, you stay centered in Him. If there is a practice, ritual, or prayer which was making your heart sing but has become rote, drop it. We cannot become attached to any practice or specific prayer, even if it is one that "appears" to take us toward Him. Because ultimately all of these vehicles which take you toward Him are still things of this world, and what is of this world will pass away. When something has become rote, this is to be celebrated, because you have moved to the next level of your recognition of your Oneness with Him, and He will bring you the next thing that will make your heart sing, increasing your joy to an even higher level.

How Is Your Holiness Determined?

Your holiness is not determined by what you say, what you do, how often you pray, how pious you are, how often you do service, etc. Your holiness is determined by Him. Your Oneness with God is your birthright of holiness, eternally.

Why Should You Withdraw Your Belief?

Don't fight against that which is false inside of you, as this gives it power. When you have false beliefs, like judgment, simply withdraw your belief from them, and you will be left with what is Real --- Love. How do you withdraw your belief? You must acknowledge that you don't understand. This is a place of surrender. Ironically, when you do this, then you open the space for truth to enter and you know the truth of your being.

Your Choice Is Simple

In every situation, in every encounter you have with another person, you are acting as a teacher. By your actions, or non actions, by your words or by your silence, you demonstrate what you believe. When you demonstrate, you are teaching the other person, and you are also teaching yourself, because you are confirming what you already believe. The other person is also teaching you and themselves in the same manner. You teach either Love (God's Kingdom) or fear (everything else). Do not be deceived by the myriads of forms that Love and fear can appear as. Your choice is simple --- Love or fear?
