Your Salvation

Your salvation is up to you. It is not outside of you. It is not contingent on events in the world or what others do or don't do for you, as if they acted differently or said something you want to hear, everything would be okay. Your salvation depends on how you see yourself and your relationship with God --- how you see, whether you remember, the oneness that is Now and has always been. Whether you acknowledge and KNOW that Christ is waiting to be remembered and reborn within you. That you are His most holy and blessed child, sinless and perfect like Him, as He created you from Himself. Rejoice, for your salvation is up to you and eternally established in Him. Nothing "outside" of you can change this.

Knowledge Versus Truth


Knowledge is learning of the world. We acquire knowledge. Truth is what we know --- because we are One with Him. It is not learned. It is revealed and remembered.

The Journey of Self

To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. That does not mean being smart or being well educated. You can be these things and not have the wisdom that comes from observing and witnessing yourself in your surroundings, in your relationships with others, in your relationship with Life, and especially in your relationship with Him. The relationship with the Self is the relationship with Him. To know thyself opens the Kingdom of Heaven, and you cannot find any answers outside of your Self. The journey of knowing thyself is one of immense joy, awe, glory, and gratitude.

The River Of Life


Allow the River of Life to carry you effortlessly, without resistance, and enjoy every sight and experience brought to you. You never know what the next bend in the River will bring and that's the fun of it. If you try to control where you go by fighting the current, you end up bloodied when you smash into the rocks.

There Is No Separation

When we have a hard time saying goodbye to someone ---- whether that be for a short or extended period, a lifetime for someone whom we will not see again, or for someone who has died --- we are feeling the great sadness we have over our belief that we are separate from God. Every time we feel this sadness, we are recreating this moment when we believed that we were no longer One with Him. When we realize this is a false belief, not only is His Presence always there, but we live in a sea of Unity. And we know that we can never be separate from any part of Him. We are eternal and One, and separation and death are only appearances in this false world. We are not physical bodies that appear to be separate and appear to be "born" and go back to dust. Through the power of your thought and the knowing and joy that comes from your recognition of your Self as part of the Kingdom, you can connect with anyone who is "apart" from you, either by "distance" or "death."

God Can Only ...

God can take you, reveal to you, only as far as you ALLOW Him. He will not override the free Will that He gave to you. You can be in the world but not of it. You can do greater things than Jesus --- he told you so! How willing are you to release what is false inside of you, the false beliefs you have about yourself, God, and your relationship to God? Are you afraid of your own divinity, of your own holiness? Don't be afraid to face what is false inside of you. It doesn't really exist. It only exists through the power of the belief you give to it. You are not this temporary personality which has an identity tied to the world or certain family or relationship dynamics and which is doomed to go back to dust --- what a sad existence that would be if it were true. As you withdraw these false beliefs, you recognize that you are as God created you, which is who you have always been, because you are One with Him. When you release what is false, only God remains.

What Is Sin?

By definition, whatever is Truth is always Truth. It is Changeless. If you believe in sin as real, then it is changeless, and there can never be forgiveness or penance. Under this belief system, you can never come back to God. Therein lays the unspoken dilemma of most religions. When you see that there is not a universally accepted definition of what sin is, then you can open to the Truth that sin is arbitrary and changing. Sin exists only within the eyes of the beholder as that person moves through this illusion. Thus sin is only part of the dream.

Punishing Yourself

When you want someone to get their comeuppance or get what they have coming to them, you really are saying you want them punished. This is a projection of how you feel about yourself, that you should be punished. Why would you think that you should be punished? Because you believe that you have sinned against God. Compassion starts with yourself. You cannot see a world of gentleness and beauty, of holiness and Love, unless you first see that in your Self.

Why Should You Forgive?

If you cannot find motivation in forgiveness to benefit the other person, then find the motivation to forgive in order to release yourself. When you don't forgive, you believe that you are punishing the other person and that you are the jailer who keeps them in prison. But that is false. By not forgiving, you act as your own jailer. Your peace and joy can serve as your motivation. Not forgiving someone gives you a false peace and joy, a falsity that you give justification to by "making them suffer for their words or actions (sins)." Forgiveness brings you true peace and joy, God's peace and joy. This is a complete release which frees you.

Only Out Of Love

You know the saying that what doesn't kill you will make you stronger? Know that if God has given you a "trial" to bring you closer to Him, it will not kill you, or you would not have been given it. These trials, these circumstances, these opportunities, are not meant to punish you, for God is a God of Love, not punishment. These opportunities are given out of Love so that you can shed false beliefs you have about yourself and so that you can see how much strength and faith you truly have. When you see this, it helps you to remember Him.

It Is What It Is

The expression "it is what it is" does not mean you sit in hopelessness and depression. It means that you accept and surrender to everything, even what appears to be horrific or bad, knowing that nothing is outside of God. From this place of surrender, you can take the right action. And taking action is very important, because we must combine prayer and communion with God, combine sending out Light, with demonstrable action. You are God's hands and feet and you must use those if you want the world to change.

How Do You Gain More Love?

Logic would tell you that when something is taken from you, you "lose" it, but this is a view by a world which believes in differences and appears separate. A vision of Oneness shows us that Creation expands when we give out of Love, because we were created out of Love, by Love. Love gives fully without hesitation, knowing that it is giving to Itself. As more Love is expressed, God knows Himself, Herself, at ever deepening levels.

What Do You Possess?

You do not possess anything of this world. You are only the vessel through which these things come and go. If you believe that you "own" things of the world, the less you will have. If you know that you are only a vessel, the more that can pass through you. You receive to then bless. What you do possess are the gifts of the Kingdom --- His peace, His joy, and His Love.

What Is Permanent?

If you only had a short time to live, how would you spend it? Would you spend it with your loved ones? These relationships are all that is real in the world. These encounters between God and in God are written as a permanent record of Love. Love is the only thing you take from this dream into Heaven. So why don't you live now as if it is your last day?

A Collective Illusion

Many people believe that judgment is more credible if two people, or even a whole group of people, hold the same view. All judgment is illusory, for it sees differences that do not exist. Judgment is based on perception, which goes back to the beliefs held by the perceiver. And we all have different beliefs, some changing moment by moment. Truth does not have to reveal itself. It is self evident and Changeless. A group of people share judgment out of fear. They falsely believe that fear can be alleviated through a group confirmation. Judgment (illusion) can never be turned into Truth, regardless of how many people share in that belief.

Pray From ...

Pray from knowledge, not lack. For instance, instead of praying to feel His Presence, say a prayer of gratitude that you are One with Him and He is present with you always. Instead of praying to receive abundance, say a prayer of gratitude that His abundance is fully with you because you are One with Him and these are the gifts of your inheritance. You might say that you don't have abundance --- your car is breaking down or you have lost your job. But you do have that abundance --- it is your recognition of this Truth that will create a physical manifestation of the abundance. As you say prayers of gratitude, feel that gratitude and joy in all parts of your Being. Feeling it versus thinking it puts it in a God space where it can manifest.

Are There Different Kinds Of Love?

When you think of love, many think of a romantic love or the love given by parents. Human or ego based love is always conditional, relying on expectations and appearances. But anything variable like this is not Love. Divine Love is Truth, which means that there are no exceptions. It appears that there can be different kinds of Love, but this is only an appearance. Divine Love is all that exists because God is all that exists.

Forgiven First

Nothing can be understood until it is first forgiven. This allows it to be seen through the eyes of God. Actually, God does not need to forgive us because He does not see sin in us --- He only sees Love, which is all that exists --- He only sees Himself. But because we live in a world of duality where it appears that we can sin and do things against His Will, we must see with forgiveness so we can be lifted into a Divine consciousness where we only see Love. When you want to judge someone or something, including yourself, forgive it first. The judgment will dissipate and the harshness is taken away, revealing the holiness and Love that was always there.

Unconditional


Think closely what it means when we say that God's Love is unconditional. This means without conditions. Nothing is required of you. There is nothing you need to do to earn that Love. Nothing you have to say, do, think, or believe in --- you have that Love, are that Love, by virtue of your Oneness with Him. You were created by Love to be the object of that Love, and you are that Love as well. All else is false.

Forgive Them Father

"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.

Angry At The Act Or Person?

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.

Looking For Love In All The Worng Places

You know that song about looking for love in all the wrong places? Well, that is what the vast majority of people are doing. They look for it in a relationship, in their career, medicators like food or addictive substances, etc. You do not have to go looking for Love. You have it! It is you! When you look inside yourself, you find Love, because that is where God is. Your task is simply to release everything that covers up your recognition of this.

Flavors of God

One of the joys of living in this dream is that you meet and form relationships, minor or lifelong, with so many expressions of God, of your Self. There is only God, only the One that exists, but in this world God reveals Himself in an infinite number of ways. When you see the Oneness, you have great gratitude and appreciation for the number of personalities and flavors. It is you seeing your Self and rejoicing in that.

How Do You Change ...?


How do you change something about yourself? Let's say you get jealous easily. When you condemn yourself for being jealous and you try not to be jealous, you are only giving the jealousy more power by fighting against it. But what if you just witness and sit with your jealousy? It may not feel good, but you are not running from it nor giving it power. You are bringing it to the present moment where God exists. You are being okay with it and with yourself. And in doing this, you transform it.

Relationships As Manna


Many people flee from difficult relationships, whether that be with a spouse, a significant other, a friend, a boss, etc. But these relationships are meant to show us something about ourselves that will provide a large leap forward on our path back to God. If we can stay present in these relationships, we can see the gift that the other person is providing to us. They give us a mirror into ourselves, a mirror into false beliefs that we would rather not look at. But these false beliefs are what creates the barrier between us and God. When you are able to bless this person for the gift they have given you and you are able to see God working through them, you have really arrived. If you flee from these relationships, you will encounter similar situations time and time again until you have mastered the lesson that these relationships bring.

Shadow Parts

The paradox is that your shadow parts --- those parts you consider evil and hate --- can't be transformed until you recognize them at a conscious level. You are whole, complete, filled with the one Light of God, so these shadow parts don't really exist, but as long as you suppress them, they exist through your belief. You think that by pushing them into a dark corner of your psyche, they are taken care of and have gone away, but the paradox is that they "won't go away" until you recognize your belief in them by bringing that belief to the surface.
