True Cause And Effect

God is Cause, and you are His effect, His Love effect. There is no other cause and effect, but you believe this world to be real, you believe in another cause and effect. You see the events that happen and the people that come into your life as the cause, and you are the effect --- you are subject to the random experiences and people you encounter. You are subject (the effect) to the whims of the dreamer (the Cause), but you fail to recognize that you are the dreamer. All that happens to you is by your choices you make at a spirit level which is hard for an ego personality mind to grasp when "negative" things happen. What is meant by the world passing away and the Kingdom of God is within you? Simply that nothing exists but you and God, that He is the only Cause and you (the one Sonship of which we are all One) are His Effect in Creation.

Thoughts Inconsistent With Love

As we return to Him, we will have those times when our thoughts are not consistent with Love. Know that these are actually times of great growth as what doesn't serve us is brought to the surface to be released. Remember, you cannot have a mountaintop without the corresponding valley. So do not judge yourself for these thoughts arising. If we condemn ourselves for these thoughts, it leads to a negative downward spiral of additional thoughts that only delay our progress.

Being Successful

Are you successful in the world, successful in God, or both? We create through the power of our thought and belief. The more you see, believe and know that something will happen as if it is already happening, even if it has not yet happened or manifested, the quicker it will manifest. You can use this power for "good" purposes or for "bad" purposes. There are many people who are adept at using this power to be successful in the world but who do not know their Oneness with and do not have God in their heart. Hitler was "successful" and fell in this category. Then you have the opposite end with Jesus, who was "successful" in God. You can be successful as the world measures success and still be successful in God. In fact, if you are successful in God, you can be successful in bringing great abundance to yourself, some attributes of which are measured in worldly terms such as wealth or right use of power.

Our Understanding Of God HAs Evolved

As our ability to understand has evolved, God has revealed more of His true nature. For instance, in the Old Testament God is not referred to as a Father in terms of a parent and child. He is referred to as a father of a nation, similar to a distant king. During the Old Testament times, many gods were worshipped, and the first step that had to take place was the move to worship the one God. The Ten Commandments were necessary to have people understand a basic moral code, but they were at a place in their understanding where this code had to be transmitted almost as rules to be followed. This went hand in hand with the belief that God was distant and would punish His people if the rules were not followed. Jesus brought us to a new level of God revealing Himself, as we learned through Jesus that God is Love, God is One, God is All, we are His children, and the Kingdom is within us --- we are never separate from Him. Now, we are in times where our understanding is evolving into an even deeper level of God revealing Himself to us. The Christ is awakening in us as the Christ awakened in Jesus.

Living From An Open Heart

What does it mean to live from an open heart? An open heart allows you to see as God sees --- without judgment and through eyes of forgiveness as Love looks past. It allows you to be vulnerable yet powerful. An open heart is the vehicle through which you heal, because if you allow yourself to be vulnerable and are hurt by someone, only through the perspective of an open heart can you raise your consciousness to see above the actions or words of that person. An open heart loves all and sees only Unity. An open heart means gentleness and kindness --- you cannot live with an open heart and intentionally hurt another. It means expansiveness of your Being, not contraction. It means unlimited joy --- God's joy. It takes a strong Will and intention to live from an open heart in this world, and it is not only possible, it is essential if you want to survive and thrive in these difficult times.

Being Alone Versus Being Lonely

There is a great difference between being alone and being lonely. If you don't know yourself, you don't know Him, and you are always lonely. These are the people who must constantly be doing something or be with somebody. If you know yourself and know Him, you are never lonely, regardless of whether you are alone or with people.

If You Want To Help The World ....

If you want to help the world, then increase the Light that you put into the world. How do you do this? By working on yourself. By releasing false beliefs you have about yourself and God, you make your physical cover more transparent and this allows more of your Light, God's Light, to shine through. Know thyself! Does this mean that you can't be of service to others in the way the world recognizes it, such as feeding the homeless, etc? Of course not. As you become more of a vessel for God, you will truly be His hands and feet and He will direct you in the service that you do.

But too many people do "outside" service in order to be recognized for it and without working on themselves. When others can see your Light, your service is exponentially more powerful, and this is often as simple as being in someone's presence who need your Light to help them remember. Your Light helps to awaken His Presence within them, and this is why we are all here.

Comparison

Comparison is a defense used by the ego to attempt (unsuccessfully) to cover its feelings of inferiority. When the world is seen through the ego, it is one of differences. There are those people who have "more" --- better looks, better education, more money, more intelligence, more spiritually evolved --- and there are those who have "less." The ego makes itself feel better and more safe by comparing itself to those who have "less", which makes it feel superior. Of course, comparison is not of God because all is One and only in this false world do differences appear.

The Appearance Of The World Is A Projection

The appearance of evil, conflict, attack, and judgment in this world all comes from a belief in separation from God that has been projected out, individually and collectively. Once the belief in separation has been released, the appearance of the world will match the Kingdom of Heaven. Each person in the world has the responsibility to release their individual belief in separation, creating a point of Light that will join with other points in the web of Light and awaken all of humanity. But it starts with you.

Glimpses Of Truth

All you know is not all you are. Many people just know this world, this ego based dream of separation, as their only reality. Even when they are given glimpses of Truth, and everyone is given glimpses in a form that works well for them, they make the mistake of assuming that these glimpses may be at best rare exceptions, and at worst the glimpses didn't really occur. Hold strong on to your glimpses, because these are one of the foundations of your faith. These glimpses are not exceptions or rare occurences ---- these are all that exist. You just need the eyes to see. It is easy to be deceived by appearances in the w orld, but these glimpses are your Truth.

You Can't Think God

Reason and logic are important on this path as confirmation of what you have experienced. You can't think God. You have to experience your Oneness with Him. It is helpful to allow the ego and brain to understand Oneness, but it can only go so far as these are created from a belief in separation, a belief in limits, and God is unlimited.

Is Faith Outside Of You?

Faith is not something that is increased by things such as miracles or divine coincidences happening outside of you. Because you are One with God, your faith is complete. As you release your false beliefs, you uncover these things which are blocking you from seeing that your faith has always been there. It is not the miracles which increase your faith. It is your complete faith which creates and brings you the miracles in your life. The more evident this reality becomes, the greater the number of miracles and divine happenings which you bring to yourself. Your faith will be tested, not because you are being punished, but so that you will see how strong your faith truly is.

The Universe

Astrophysicists struggle with the parts of the universe they know are there but they can't see. They call these parts dark matter and dark energy. But they see these things as separate.

You can't get a unified and workable model of the universe if you are seeing things as separate, like the observable universe as separate from dark matter and dark energy. It is all dark energy --- it is all God. Just as an ocean is all water, there are areas in the ocean which are warmer of different shades of color, but it is still all water. You can also think of it as a continuum of the same energy. There may be points on the continuum that appear (the observable universe), but there is no separation.

Everything is vibration. We are all part of the God frequency. The points on the continuum or areas of the ocean which appear different are the observable parts of the universe which are vibrating and have more density. But again these areas are still contained within one larger vibratory field. Physicists are trying to develop instrumentation which measures this dark energy by seeing it pass through particles and have light emitted, but maybe they should be developing instrumentation that measures extremely sensitive vibration instead of light. Light is just a form of vibration, but they need to go to the level above that where there would be no light created because it is a higher form of vibration.

Unlearning

We cannot learn our way back to God. For we are One with Him and He is ALL. Oneness goes beyond learning and perception. Truth is self evident --- it is known, not something to be perceived. Truth is God. Truth is you. You know thyself, not perceive thyself, although the vast majority of people live in a perception of who they think they are, not who they really are. The way back to God in our remembrance (for we have never left Him) is to unlearn. We must recognize what is false, what is of the world, and not of Him, and then this reveals Him.

When Do You Become Fearful Or Anxious?

Do you notice how you only become fearful or anxious when you are thinking about something in the past (often guilt associated with this as well) 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 the 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."

Negative Cycle

Your thoughts create self judgment, and your self judgment creates your thoughts. It goes both ways. Because you judge yourself, this produces a thought system that is not of God. When you operate in this false thought system, you judge yourself for the thoughts that arise. It is a negative cycle that feeds on itself. Only by knowing your Oneness and feeling His Presence within you, only by tapping into and receiving His thoughts (which are your true thoughts), can you break this cycle.

The "Cure"

A cure is not something which offsets another thing within the illusion. For instance, if you have cancer and you take chemo, "curing" the cancer, that may not really be the cure because you have not addressed the true reason for the cancer. This could be an illusory cure within the illusion itself. A true cure is when you are able to apply atonement to a situation, removing your guilt. Because when we feel guilty, we often punish ourselves through sickness. We also live in a very toxic world and we may become sick from things outside of our control, but looking at beliefs is very important when sickness arises. Our collective and individual belief in separation leads to a belief in a "body" which is then punished for being separate. This is why Jesus was crucified --- the belief was that by destroying his body, "sin" would be eliminated, but this whole reasoning is based on illusion and false beliefs. By changing our mind, our understanding of our Oneness with God, we are able to truly cure.

Having Regrets

Everything is as it should be. There are no mistakes. There may be some things that you would choose to do differently if you could do them again, but everything serves the purpose of awakening us to our divinity, even those experiences we deem "bad" and judge ourselves for. Knowing this, knowing that everything is contained within the body of God, why would you have regrets about anything?

The River of Life

Envision your journey through life as a River of Life that takes you to different scenery (experiences). You can float effortlessly on the River, or it can be a trying experience when you fight the current. 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 it takes us against the rocks on the side. These are not wasted experiences as we learn what is right for us through contrast, by taking the wrong current. If we learn from the "wrong" experiences, we come to a high path --- the path of no resistance. This is where we have abandoned any pretense of knowing what is best for us and we allow the main current, the God stream, to carry us without any effort on our part. In fact, after struggling for so long against what IS, we finally recognize that of ourself, we are nothing and that our effort impedes us floating effortlessly. This is called full surrender, and this is the only place you can find His joy and peace.

Falling Off Center

As we progress on the journey, we have numerous times when we fall off center and it appears and feels like our connection with God is lost. These times occur less frequently and are of shorter duration the farther we progress. If we let it be and we do not get into guilt or give any energy to agonizing over being off center, this will bring us out of this space more quickly, because we are not giving any energy to something that is not real.

What Is The Key To Life?

1 Corinthians 8:1a-3 "Knowledge puffs up, but Love edifies. And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him." --- The teachings of the world show us nothing about what true knowledge is --- they just puff us up with pride in what we know or what our degree is in. Even the teachings of the religious and spiritual books show us nothing unless we have and live the key to understand the true meaning beyond the interpretation the world and its experts give to them. And that key is Love. When we live in Love, from Love, as Love, we live in Unity and Oneness, for we are Love, as God is Love. Love gives meaning to everything we see and do. It gives meaning to our very existence. Love, not the teachings or perceptions of the world, equals true knowledge, true understanding.

What Grievances Do

A grievance clouds your recognition of your divinity. It keeps you in prison, not the other person. It negatively affects your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health. Would you keep something next to your body that gives you cancer? That is what a grievance does.

False Beliefs About The Spiritual Journey

Several mistakes that most people make on their spiritual journey is to believe that they have all the answers and that they are on a higher level of awareness than someone else. There is always another level of awareness and remembrance, for God is infinite. We are continually evolving. We all have the same knowing, for we are One. It is only your recognition and remembrance that may temporarily differ from another.

Technology --- Good Or Bad?

Technology, as with everything in the world, can be used to move us closer or farther away in our awareness of our Oneness with God. Technology can be used to create community that was not previously there, "when two are gathered in my name." But technology has become a god for many. It is used as a diversion to not be present in human to human relationships, to not be still ("be still and know that I am God"), etc. When you are bored or have free time, do you get on your phone or the internet to busy yourself? What if you spent that time connecting with God?

Expectations Equal?

Expectations will bring you nothing but disappointment. Sure, you can expect the mail to be delivered or your son to take out the garbage, but I am talking about expectations you have around what your loved ones and friends should say, how they should act, etc. When we place expectations on someone close to us, we are giving that person a burden, sometimes a conscious one and sometimes an unconscious one. And people resent burdens. In effect, we are saying to them that they are not good enough as they are --- that they have to change or do something differently to meet our standard of acceptance. If you love me, you will ...
When a relationship is based on unspoken expectations, it is not authentic. It is not based on complete honesty which is what centers us in God. If you and this other person can get to the point where you can voice your expectations of each other, and you can voice how this make you feel in terms of resentment and being a burden, you are breaking down barriers. These barriers have prevented you from seeing each other for who you truly are. What you have been seeing is a false image each of you needs to be in each other's eyes, because your expectations of this other person serve as a crutch that you want in order to uphold and validate a false image you have of yourself. When you know your Oneness with Him, no outside validation is needed. You already have the Kingdom. In marriage, even the belief that your spouse should love you is an expectation that is false. It is a false construct that has arisen from society. Imagine the quality of the Love that can come from your spouse, not because you expect it, but because they want to give it, joyously and unconditionally. This Love is very close to the Love that God has for you and you for Him. An amazing thing happens when you have no expectations. Everything you receive is a gift! And you are so very grateful for these gifts which begin to spread to all areas of your life. How would it feel to be grateful for every aspect of your life from every experience you have to every person you encounter?

Judgment To More Judgment

You have a certain thought, action, or non action which you judge yourself for. For the vast majority of people, this judgment is unconscious. When you judge yourself, this makes you feel separate from God. Of course, we are One with Him, and nothing can change that, but our belief creates the appearance that we are separate. If we believe that we have done something to separate from God, we judge that, which leads to more perceived separation, more judgment. This all started with the one thought, action, or non action which we had and judged ourselves for. It doesn't matter what that was and to what degree --- it could have been something as simple as judging the fact that we didn't feel like going to the grocery because we were tired. Most people live in a continuous cycle of self judgment. The only way to stop this cycle is to witness your thoughts, recognize the self judgment, and bring His Presence in to your awareness. Where He is, Oneness is self evident, and self judgment does not exist.

Understanding God, Knowing God

Understanding God can only go so far if it is just in the head. The real journey starts when you become present in your body, allowing full expression of your emotions. Then you can know God, because you know Love, which is an emotion.

The Basics of Love

You can't love your neighbor as yourself if you don't love yourself first. You can't love yourself first if you believe you are sinful and that God is punishing and judgmental.

Bringing It To The Light

Because you have free Will, God cannot take something from you. You must offer it to Him and ask Him to take it. This means that you have to acknowledge and bring those things into the Light that you have tried to keep hidden ---- those thoughts you are ashamed of, your fears, your anger at someone, your anger at God, etc. You fear acknowledging these things as if you are an evil or sinful person for having them, but you are not evil or sinful --- you only THINK you are evil or sinful. Paradoxically, bringing forth that which you want to hide and are ashamed of is how you transform these things and the only way to know your holiness, to know that you are the Light.

Who Do You Make Your Devil?

Who or what do you make the devil in your life? What person, group, or organization, do you have to blame? For we project our belief that we are sinful on to someone or something because we don't want to face our own self judgment and belief we are sinful. So this is why the world appears as it does --- a collective projection of each person's blame and guilt. But we are holy because we are One and we have never left our Source --- God. Just as a ray of sunlight is not separate from the Sun and a thought cannot be separate from the mind which created it, we can never be separate from our Creator. But we believe we are separate because we believe we have sinned against God, leading to guilt, self judgment, and fear that He will punish us.

Perception

Perception is an accurate word. When we "perceive" something, we are viewing it and judging it through our belief system. Our belief system shapes and creates what we "see." Perception is not Truth. It is at least one step removed from Truth, because Truth cannot be perceived --- it just is. It is self evident, not up for debate. So when you see/perceive all of these things in the world, what is the Truth that is behind what you see?
