Don't Fall Into Old Patterns

If you are thinking positively with joy and love around an upcoming experience or opportunity and it doesn't happen, don't let that lead you back into an old belief that you are being punished and that you are not worthy. Know that you are entitled to goodness and that there are an infinite number of experiences and opportunities coming your way as you float down the River of Life, in the flow of God. When something doesn't happen, it is because you are not ready or because there is something even greater coming.

What Love Wants

What does Love want to do? Love wants to give joy to others. Ask yourself in every interaction if this is what you are doing. What is your intent? If it is not to give joy, why is it not?

All That Exists

Good is all that exists, because God is ALL that exists. When the appearance of evil is taken away, when the power of the belief in it is withdrawn, good is all that is left, because it was the only thing there to start with.

Regrets

Don't have regrets about anything in the past, because it keeps you in the past, not the present moment. A regret means that you are not accepting of what happened as part of your highest good, and often there is guilt attached to regrets. Guilt cuts you off from God. You may say that if you could do it over again, you would do it a different way, but this is not a regret. Saying you would have done it a different way is empowering, because you have learned, without guilt or self judgment, how to better honor who you truly are.

God Or The World

When you release things of the world, you release them because you no longer cherish them and because you no longer fear them. You see them for what they are --- nothing in relation to what God can give you. No one in a sane mind would ever turn back to the things of the world when they have experienced God, His Love, and His gifts. This doesn't mean you can't enjoy the things of the world --- it just means that you cannot make these things your god.

Do You Believe You Are Guilty?

The world you see is a by product of our projection, individually and collectively, of guilt and self judgment. Do you see that as long as you think an individual, a group, or a nation is "right" or "wrong," you are still living in this false world, not His Kingdom? You, as part of the one Sonship of God, are not guilty, but if you continue to see the world from this perspective, you believe that you are guilty. When you drop this, you rise above the current perspective you have to see the Unity that exists. In Unity, there are no differences, no distinctions, no absolutes of "right" or "wrong," and judgment is impossible. "Right" or "wrong" becomes individualized to you in each moment, each decision, as you make decisions which affirm your divinity and Oneness. So a rapist or murderer is not making choices which affirms their divinity, but their action does not make them any less divine than you or Jesus. They are just far away from recognizing their divinity or they would not make the choices they do. When we recognize our divinity, we recognize our Oneness, and we make choices which affirm that and do no harm to anyone, because everyone is a part of you.

Meaning Of Unconditional

God's Love is unconditional. "Without conditions" means that you don't have to do anything to earn His Love. And there is nothing you can do to lose His Love.

God Of Love Or Punishment?

If you have any doubts about whether God will bless you, then you believe that He is a punishing God. There is no in between. Either He is a God of Love or a God of punishment. I can assure you that He is a God of Love, but you must believe you are deserving of that Love and abundance --- you must know that you are not sinful --- in order to receive the gifts of the Kingdom.

Are You Really Surrendering It?

If there is something that you wish God would take, maybe you have a disease or you are in a lot of pain, or you have depression or are angry all the time, you must surrender it versus asking Him to take it. If you are asking Him to take it, it is still your will. If you surrender it to Him, you are saying that His Will be done, even if that means you still have that condition. When you surrender something to Him, you fully release, without any strings attached, control over it. And you trust in full faith that He has your highest good.

But It Appears That Way

You are on a journey of remembrance, but you are already at the destination, for you never left it. You never separated from God. It is really hard for us to grasp that we are not separate and what that means because we live in a world where everything appears separate. But appearances are not reality. It is simply our beliefs, really just our belief that we have sinned, that needs to be released and we will know Heaven and God's Presence within us instantly.

First, know that you are not sinful and God is not separate from you. Second, witness your false beliefs as they present themselves to you in many encounters and situations. Many of these beliefs may not initially be associated with God. They may go back to beliefs that were ingrained since childhood about your worth, traumas you have experienced, etc. As you start to pay attention to these false messages that run like a computer virus in your head, you can unwind them to the source and eventually release them fully. For this is what you came here to do. But you have to be diligent and you have to want this more than anything else. And you have to be willing to work through the emotional attachments --- fear, guilt, shame, anger, etc --- that are intertwined with these false beliefs.

Can You Really Judge?

You can only judge something you see as separate from you, for it takes two things to make judgment possible, the person judging and the object of that judgment. You only judge something "outside" of you when you have self judgment for you project that judgment out. Since we are One (God is all that exists) and there is no separation, judgment is impossible. Your belief that you can be separate creates a belief that you can judge. In Oneness "inside" and "outside" become the same as separation and judgment dissolve into the nothingness from which they arose. Start with the acceptance and knowledge that there is only Oneness --- one field of undifferentiated energy which science has already proven --- and use that to see how you have fooled yourself and to see what cannot possibly exist. The logic is irrefutable because Truth is self evident. And when judgment falls away, so must fear, anger, guilt, shame, etc. They never existed outside of the belief you gave them because only Love exists.

You May Believe ....

You may 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 someone has agreed to take on in order that they might remember, and they might help others to remember, who they really are. What a blessing you are providing to others and others are providing to you as we go about these interactions.

That Which You Give Power To

That which you fear and give power to --- your hatred, fear, anger, shame, and guilt --- becomes stronger simply by your belief in it. A belief can't be released until it is recognized.

You Are Not ....

You are not that long term illness or the physical disability you are experiencing. You are not the depression that you have to deal with. You are not the anger that has been rising up in you. These are temporary conditions you are experiencing. You are not any of these things, and neither are you defined by them. They are not who you are.

Going "Back"

All paths lead back to recognition of the One --- it is only recognition because we can't go back to something we never left. Sometimes it appears that someone is going away from God, but that may be path that takes a more circuitous route. All paths are contained within the One because only the One exists.

Demand From Yourself

Demand truth, accountability, and personal responsibility from yourself before you demand it from others. You cannot know Him without these being part of who you are. If you are lying to yourself or not taking responsibility for your actions, you are trying to hide this from God. Of course, you cannot hide anything from God, but the part of you that does not honor Truth in all ways believes that it can hide things from Him.

What Is Outside The Will Of God?

Can we do something outside the Will of God? Since God is One, He is all that exists, and we are part of that Oneness. His Will cannot be separate from Him or the Oneness either. If you do something that you "think" is outside His Will, is it truly outside His Will, or does it just appear that way, similar to a play on the stage that might appear real if you temporarily get immersed in it? Can you ever describe what His Will is?

Why Forgiveness Is Important

Why is it important for you to forgive everyone you hold grievances against? Because it is in your self interest. When you forgive them, you forgive yourself, for we are One. The sins that you see in others are the sins which you believe are within you.

To Lead A Joy Filled Life ....

God will give you hints or paths to follow for your emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual healing which will bring you closer to Him. But you can't guarantee that you won't have to go through pain to get to His peace and joy. A big part of healing is releasing control to Him. So can you release control and accept what happens, knowing that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel and that He always has your highest good? This is true faith. You are in a prison cell of your own making. If you don't have faith in His Love and path for you and you don't take the hints, then you can only look at yourself when your life is not filled with joy.

Love In Action

God, who is Love, created us out of Love so that He could experience Himself, Herself as Love. We are both the object of His Love and that Love. The noun Love becomes the verb Love as Love becomes manifest in this world.

What Guilt Does

Guilt casts a heavy shadow over your recognition of your Oneness with God. God awaits you in that Oneness, but you cannot know His Presence if you believe you have sinned, thus separating yourself from Him. You can't be separate from Him, but this is what you can believe.

God Is With You

Whether you are feeling weary, excited, scared, joyful, or guilty, God is with you through All. Consciousness never sleeps and never stops the expression of Love.

The Tiniest Thought

What you consider to be your tiniest thought has an impact far beyond anything you can imagine. You affect the world with every thought you have because everything exists as thought. You were created by God as a Love thought. Your thoughts are either Love or fear based --- there is no in between. That is why you must be aware of your thoughts.
