Animals Are A Reflection

How we treat our animals, individually and collectively as a society, is a reflection of what we feel about ourselves. Do we mistreat them? Do we honor them if we have killed them for meat? Do we hurt or kill them for pleasure? For if we cannot see God reflected in the innocence, purity, and pure love of our animals, how can we begin to see Him in ourselves and our fellow human beings? Animals are messengers to you, both your pets and those in the wild. There is much to learn from the reflection they offer.

Aware And Awake

When you bring awareness to an issue, you are bringing God's Light to it. This transforms it, transmutes it, takes the power away from it, and heals it. Awareness is simply an observation and a recognition of why you react the way you do --- in all situations or in specific situations. Being fully aware and fully awake are the same thing. When you fully understand what is the trigger which makes you react a certain way, then you no longer have need of that reaction.

"Sin" and Problems

See with the vision of Christ, see all of your brothers and sisters as sinless, and all of your "problems" will go away. You will see "sin" or sinlessness in others to the extent you see it or don't see it in yourself. All "sin" and allroblems" disappear in His Kingdom. His Kingdom is one of Love, joy, and Unity. Since All is One, either everything is "sin" or everything is sinless. God is All -- He is "sin"?

His Will

One of the greatest discoveries you can make is that your will does not make you happy unless it aligns with His Will. Most people THINK they know what makes them happy, but they are forming this belief through a very narrow and completely false lens. The more we surrender and we acknowledge that we don't have the full picture, the more we can feel His Presence, peace, and joy.

Forgiveness And Letting Go Of Self Judgment

How do we forgive others? First, we practice on ourselves. Think of something that you have thought of before and for which you have condemned yourself. After you feel that self judgment, ask for God's help so that the counterpart to that judgment, the forgiveness and Love that is contained within you, can come to the surface. It is inaccurate to say that this forgiveness and Love is contained within you --- it is the essence of who you are, but it may feel like only a small part of you. Allow that forgiveness and Love to cleanse the judgment --- there is no conquering, as this is not a contest. When we place our focus on what we are, the forgiveness and Love, everything false (the judgment) falls away. Remember, this feeling of forgiveness. Your memory and ability to pull it up again is contained in the feeling, not the thought. The more you work with this and continue to bring it up, the greater the presence will be for you. Eventually, no self judgment will remain.

"Fixing" Someone

You can't "fix" anyone. They can only "fix" themselves. If you have a need to "fix" someone, then you need to "fix" yourself, or rather how you view yourself because you believe that you are not whole or good enough. When you see yourself as One with everything, a different colored and different shape wave in the Ocean that is God, then you don't see differences that need to be fixed.

How To See Love

If you withdraw judgment from everything, you see only neutrality. Neutrality allows that object or person to be what they really are, which is Love.

What Is In Your Power In Your Relationships?

What is in your power? What can you "control?" You certainly can't make someone like you. You can't make them love or forgive you even if you are very close to them and you want it very badly. You can't even make God love you, although He does unconditionally and eternally beyond all measure of understanding. What is fully in your power is the ability to love and forgive, always! This you can do, regardless of how much the other person has hurt you, regardless of your circumstances, regardless of anything.

This is a great power, the power that can move mountains and create miracles. This is the reality of who you are. The more you recognize this and practice it, the more you will LIVE it --- and what others "do" to you will have little bearing. This is where the peace of God lies.

Zero Point

When your mind is daydreaming, when it is empty, this is your natural state. From this zero point does Creation emerge. This may feel scary at first, especially because the ego fears that, but it is what brings you peace, the peace of God.

Your Self And God

The discovery of your Self is the discovery of God. They are one and the same. Just as you see a reflection of yourself in a mirror, you must see yourself in Life, how you interact in your relationships, how you react to your experiences. It is this introspection and observation which leads to Self awareness, which is awareness of Him. And this is a process, a journey, that never ends.

What Is Of This World

What is of this world will pass away. What is of this world will turn to dust. What is of this world can never give meaning to you. You are not of this world. Anything of this world is not eternal. You are eternal.

We Are All Different, But ...

The differences you see are to be appreciated, not judged. They reflect the richness of God in form. But differences are only an appearance. When you take away the appearance, you are left with Unity, with God.

Sinful Self Portrait

Is it possible that this sinful self portrait you have created is not true? That this guilt you have assigned to yourself, this belief that He judges you and will punish you, is not true? For this is badly what you desire --- to know that He does not see you the way you see yourself, that He loves His or Her most holy child whom He created? Did God create sin? Of course not! He created only sinless perfection, purity and holiness, as part of Himself, or Herself. Your sinful imaginings and false beliefs, this false world where you see yourself committing these sinful acts --- have never been and will never be true.

How To Know God

You cannot know God if you are not present. This means being present with yourself and being present in the Now.

When we are present with ourselves, we don't run from ourselves -- we must accept ourselves as we are, all of the emotions such as anger and grief, the insecurities, the fear, the judgment, the guilt, etc. Only by fully feeling our emotions and by accepting what we see as "negative," can we transform these and see who we really are, which is Light, which is Love, which is God.


When we accept and don't try to hide or run from our emotions, we stay in the moment. The Now heals them, because God is present only in the Now. The Now dissolves the illusion of time, that there is a "past" and "future." We believe that there is a past, because all of our "negative" emotions and judgments are created from a past.

All of these go away in the present moment, for God is there, and when the Presence of God is recognized within you, you are acknowledging your Oneness with Him and ALL that is. You have no problems, no past, no future, when you are in the Now.

What Does Withholding Love Do To You?

So you don't love fully because you are afraid of being hurt. This is your way of being in control. This love can be withheld from another person, God, or from even something you have created, like a new business or project, as you may believe that this creation is too good to be true or you don't deserve it.

When you hold back your love from another person, you are not living in the present moment. You are living in the future, saying "what if" that person leaves me or hurts me. So by limiting the love you give, you limit the love you can receive back. You believe that this "limited" love is a more "safe" way, but limited love has another definition --- hell. If you fully give your love now, you may be hurt, or you may not be --- but you will be living an authentic and joy filled life.


IF your love is rejected, you may be hurt and you may experience grief, but your capacity to love will only be increased through this experience. We are afraid to love God fully because we believe that we have sinned against Him and he will punish us, which is completely false. But He loves us and wants for us to return His Love with eternal patience, for that is why He is Love. And each of us will return to Him and that Love --- of that there is complete certainty.

Is It Missing?

Just because you don't see the sun at night doesn't mean it is not there. Just because you don't feel the Love of God doesn't mean that it is not there.

God Is ...


Why are there so many versions of God --- God is this, or God is that? He cannot be limited by versions or distinctions. His essence is not debatable for Truth is self evident. It is time for us to return to the one trunk from which all branches spread, the "I AM," which contains all versions, all paths.

Do You Imprison Yourself?

When you begin to give up all the ego games and strategies and defenses, all of the ways you try to control situations or people, you look back and see how you have imprisoned yourself and cut off your peace and joy. You lived in hell, but you don't know it is that until you have stepped out of it, at least temporarily, and looked back. For His peace and joy can only come from being free, and you are only free when you have released that which is false and which blocks your recognition of your Oneness with Him.

The Power Of Your ....

If you think Life is hard and unjust, then this is what will be brought to you. If you think Life is a grand adventure of joy and Love, then this is what will be brought to you. The power of your beliefs creates your reality.

Someone Else's Choices

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.

Drop The Need To ....

If you always have a cause which you feel strongly about and about which you always have to be talking and convincing others, you are delaying your path. Jesus said you need to be like a little child to enter Heaven. Have you ever seen a little child that has a cause (other than having fun)?

Prayer

When we pray, we pray from a state of perception. You pray for something that you perceive you lack. When we fully remember our Oneness, the need for prayer disappears, because there is nothing you lack or nothing "outside" of you. Communion with God, not prayer, is present in the Oneness.

How Do You Change What Is Brought To You?

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, then you will demonstrate that, and you will have more of that. How do you change what is brought to you? Change your beliefs.

Why Do You Believe You Are Separate From God?

It is not your actions or your thoughts or your experiences which makes you believe you are separate from God. it is your self judgment and guilt around those things which creates the belief in separation. Someone might say that they could then murder or rape someone as long as they don't have self judgment or guilt. But if you had no self judgment or guilt, you would fully know your Oneness, and you would never come from actions or a view that was not Love. You would never hurt someone else as you know that you would be doing this to yourself.

When "evil" is committed, it is done by an individual who has tremendous self judgment, and they believe at some level that they are taking their anger and self judgment and "getting rid of it" by this act. This is false, as you cannot project away anything, for we are not separate, we are One. As God, shared Himself to create us, we can only share --- we cannot project it on to a person or group and get rid of it. After the "evil" is committed, the perpetrator has tremendous guilt, even though it may be well hidden from their conscious mind, and this is the case with self judgment.
