Do You First ...?

How often do you determine what your response will be to a situation by first judging it instead of letting it be what it is and letting Him heal it? Miracles happen when judgment is not present.

Your Holiness ...

Not only are you a part of the Light, you are the Light. The Light emanates from you as an inseparable part of Him. You are the center of the Light, of the Love, that goes forth from you and blesses the world. Your holiness blesses the world. Don't think of yourself in any other way.

Always

Always is God's Love. God's Love is always. When you are depressed, His Love is always. When you are joyful, His Love is always. When you are in the midst of tragedy or in a great celebration, always is His Love. Your situation or experiences do not alter the fact that His Love is always. Love is always there, regardless of your situation or experiences. Situations and experiences are temporary --- they change constantly. But what never changes is His Love. Absence of change equals His Love equals eternal. Heaven and earth shall fade away, but His Love will remain.

You Are That 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.

Who Is The Living God

The Living God is not the God of theology, not a benevolent but distant ruler. The Living God is the God of Love, comprehensible only through experience, not intellect. You cannot understand God --- you live Him, breathe him, be One with Him, in every fiber of your being and essence. You cannot understand that which you are. You can only be that which you are, which is Love. The Living God is your life force as well as your Beloved.

Projection Versus Love

When you project, you push something away that you don't want and that you fear. When you see with vision, you join with what calls you to remember your wholeness, which is Love.

Try It Another Way

You will continue to be presented with the same set of circumstances until you learn to react in a different way. This is not to punish you. This is to bring you the peace of God. Always remember, you do not know what is best for you. Allow God to lead and this will always take you to His joy, peace, and Love.

Stay In That Space

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 bodies in this dream, 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.

Seeing Falsely

Imagine that you are blind. When you meet someone for the first time, you can't see them. You can't see their body, thus you can't make a judgment about them based on how they look. Our judgments are based on how the body appears and how that fits in with our past experiences and our belief system. If you can't see the person, you can really "see" who they are with a vision that is not of the eyes.

Demonstrate ....

Demonstrate only Love, and Love is all that will be brought to you. Because most people do not understand that we are One, they think they can do to others without it affecting them. Because they see themselves as separate and through the eyes of the ego, they believe they have to take from or control others to be safe. But safety comes from knowing your Unity and your relationship with God. If you want more Love in your life, demonstrate it.

What Does God Is One Mean?

When we say that God is One, that does not mean that there is one God, although that is certainly true. God is One means that God is whole or complete, all that exists. And that means that you are inseparable from God, that you live and have your Being in Him. Is God sinful? Can you be sinful if you are inseparable from Him? Can you believe that you are sinful --- you can believe anything --- but not be sinful? Can a thought leave its Source? For you are God's Love thought.

What Is Behind Appearances?

Faith shows you what is behind appearances. As the appearance of the world and its false systems crumble into chaos, as the complete non functionality and insanity of an ego created and driven world is revealed, it takes an increasing amount of faith to stay out of fear. And this is how it is designed at this critical time for your faith must be strengthened. How easy is it to have faith when everything is going well? Will you have faith in Him even when the appearance gets really ugly? For when you do, you will be shown the real world He created, His eternal Kingdom, not in some distant place called Heaven, but right here, right now, within you and all that you see. Because the appearance was just that, an appearance.

How Do You Know The Now?

When you are fully engrossed in something and have great joy in it, you lose track of time and you are immersed in what you are doing. This is a semblance of living in the Now. Your thoughts are not in the past or the future, which they always are when you think with your ego mind. There is no fear in the Now.

Pray Without Ceasing

When we are told to pray without ceasing, this does not necessarily mean that we are constantly saying a prayer in our thoughts. This is not practical as we move through the world. But what is possible is to constantly keep our attention on God. To remember Him and to continually call in His Presence is the highest form of prayer, because it is communion. You can do this in every moment, even when you are doing tasks or talking to someone. The more you do this, the greater will your peace be.

Faith

What Do You Want To Be Permanent?

Do you notice how everything in the world has a cycle of life and death and renewal, of impermanence? Change is the only constant. Many people want things to be permanent --- their youth, their power, their position, their relationships --- but this is not living life, this believing in and attaching to something that is temporary and false. Only He is permanent. Only His Love is permanent. This permanence, this changelessness, underlies everything we see that is impermanent. Only by recognizing and not being attached to the impermanent can we recognize and know our Oneness with the permanent.

How You Are Polished

A diamond does not become a diamond without a huge amount of pressure and heat that is created by the earth. Similarly, your process of coming home to Him is not without "pressure" and "heat". There are times on this journey when we are releasing false beliefs, and these times can feel very hard. Even after the diamond is formed, it is still rough. This is when the polishing takes place, and a tremendous amount of friction is needed for that. So that you can be made into a perfect clarity and brilliant diamond which reflects Light in an infinite fashion, you too must be polished. This polishing is done by other rough diamonds, often someone you are close to. As they polish you, you polish them through the friction of your relationship.

Speaking Mistruth

When you speak a mistruth or you are generally not true to yourself, there is no need for anyone else to judge you. Regardless of whether you realize it at a conscious level, you are already judging yourself. If you didn't already have a lot of self judgment that was manifesting, you wouldn't be speaking mistruths or be untrue to yourself.

Belief Versus Certainty

In Heaven there is only certainty. There is no purpose for belief or faith. When you have belief, it is belief in something, something that appears "separate" from you. In the Kingdom of God there is only Oneness, nothing separate from you.

You Are ....

You are what you eat, think, see, and do. If you eat unhealthy junk food or heavily processed foods, you are polluting His Temple and He cannot shine through you. If you constantly think poisonous thoughts, you cannot hear Him speaking to you, nor can you reflect His thoughts and His Love to those you encounter. If you see a world of evil and believe that this is truly how it is an not an appearance, this reflects how you feel about yourself. If you commit acts that are harmful to others, you are really committing those acts on yourself.

Love May Condemn ....

You can be angry at someone's act without being angry at the person. Jesus was angry at what the moneychangers were doing, not at the individuals, because he saw them as part of himself, as we are all One. Love may condemn an act, not a person.

Who Is Inside You?

There is a Jesus inside you. You are the Christ. Rejoice, for there is nothing you have to do "outside" of you to be this Presence. All you have to do is release that which is false and covers up your recognition of this Presence.

What Jesus Said

"Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do." What does this statement that Jesus made on the cross tell us? It may appear that he is imploring God to forgive the crucifiers, but God is Love, and Love looks past. Forgiveness was automatic. And Jesus had no need to "voice" something when his communion with God was wordless. That statement was said so that it would be recorded and we could learn from it. "For they know not what they do." All of the evil in this world is created by individuals who have an unknowing or ignorance of their Oneness with Him. What this tells us is that the words and the actions of someone must be seen as separate from the true essence of who they are.

Grieving And Authenticity

There are many men, and some women, who are afraid of or resistant to crying. They do not want to be seen a vulnerable, as society says they should be strong, especially the men. Strength comes from knowing who you are, and you cannot know this when you do not express your full range of emotions. In the Kingdom there is only joy, but as we make our way to full recognition of the Kingdom, we exist in this dream world where it is important to grieve when a person or an animal you love dies. It is also important to grieve when you leave something where you have invested a lot of yourself, such as a relationship or a job. When we grieve, we are not vulnerable, we are powerful. A man or a woman who does not let society dictate how they should feel and what they should express is authentic. Authenticity means we are completely open, and when we are open, God can express through us. When we allow ourselves to grieve, we are alive. If we stuff our grief or sadness, it doesn't go away. It is still in there, affecting every thing you do and clogging your vessel so you can't see the joy of the Kingdom.

In Your Own Mind

Let's start a new acronym called I.Y.O.M. --- In Your Own Mind. You are a failure in your own mind. You are not a lovable person or capable of loving in your own mind. You are sinful in your own mind. You can't get anything right in your own mind. You are separate from God and He is angry with you in your own mind. ONLY I.Y.O.M.

What Others Choose To Do

Why get angry over someone's choices? You can't control or change them, nor would you want to. When we try to control, we are coming from fear. Respect and Love for Him means honoring the choices others make, even if you think they are foolish, because we are all One. When someone makes a choice, even if you think it is foolish, you then have the ability to show how God works through you. Do you have a reaction to that foolish choice? What good will this do? Whether you talk with the person about their choice is something you allow God to guide you in for each situation. But if you do talk with a person, come from His peace and His Love, and respect that this person has the right to make their own choices.

How Does God See You?



What would it be like if every time you saw someone, even someone you see often, you knew nothing about them? You had formed no opinions or beliefs about them, because you had no past with them. Could you really see them for who they are, not who you "see" through your beliefs? This is how God sees you every time. He sees no false past, no dream images, only the holiness shining through you in the Now.

Who Leads?

Let God lead you. Don't make assumptions or have preconceived notions, because then you are trying to lead God. It is our beliefs ---especially our belief that we know --- that blocks us from hearing God's voice and allowing Him to lead. You do not know what is best for you. When you finally accept that and surrender, then you will have the peace that passes understanding.

The Purpose Of Your Relationships

You know the feeling of joy and anticipation that comes from being in or anticipating a new romantic relationship? Every time you feel this, you are feeling the desire and anticipation of coming back to God and our divine relationship with Him. Human relationships are only the conduit for us to remember our relationship with Him. When we are in a relationship and we don't move to a higher level of seeing the divine in our partner, the relationship will likely fail, because it is ego/body based. Then you go from relationship to relationship, always being disillusioned and looking for that eternal factor but never finding it, because you are looking to the ego, not God. The ego only enters into a relationship to get something. When we see the relationship from a divine perspective, we want to give, not get.
