What You Hide From God


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.

How You Become Happy


Happiness comes when we no longer strive to be happy. It is the striving, the desire to be something or have something different, which blocks your awareness of the natural happiness or joy that has always been there.

For we are part of God --- He expresses through us, and He comes to know Himself/Herself as Love through having our Being in Him. God is perfect .... so we are as well.

What is the definition of perfection? Can a piece of artwork be perfect? We are each beautiful landscapes on the canvas of Life. Our belief that we are not perfect --- as we are --- stems from a misconception of who we are. It is our self judgment which creates a false belief in us that we are not already perfect.

Of course, we can "improve" ourselves by being more kind, more compassionate, more loving, but this does not take away the truth that we are still One with God and All that is, regardless of our words, actions, or thoughts. The paradox is that we can recognize ourselves as perfect while recognizing that we want to be more loving etc. Some people have trouble with the paradox as they want to go to one end or the other with it, but staying in the paradox is how we grow, because our very existence here is a paradox (human/spirit).

Accept who you are ... NOW ... in this moment. And accept others as they are. For when you accept ALL, you are confirming Truth and Unity with God, not illusion. When you judge yourself or others as not good enough, you are saying that God is not good enough. Which one do you want to affirm, because it is a choice between Heaven and hell?

Why You Are On This Earth


You are put on this Earth to love. Or rather you have chosen to come into this reality to love. for this is how God comes to know Himself, Herself.

We are all reflections of Him, clear vessels through which He works. As we get out of the way, we become more like Him, like our true Self. For He is Love, as are we.

We move and have our Being in Him as we interact in the world from Love. As we meet God and give Love to every person, every animal, every atom, we remember who we are and this brings great joy to us/Him/all Creation.

Are You Being Judged?

Someone else's judgment of you only bothers you because there is a part of you that believes it could be true. When you judge yourself, you are not sure of who you are. When you drop the judgment of yourself, judgment by others will have no effect on you.

God does not judge us except as His most holy child, for we are a part of Him. Why would God judge a part of Himself? As Love, He/She can only love. All else --- judgment, fear, shame, guilt, etc -- are only appearances held up by the power of the belief behind it. When the belief is dropped, all that remains is Love/God/You.

Muddy To Clear

Picture a jar of clear water with a layer of mud at the bottom. This is what you look like before you start your healing journey back to God.

It appears on the surface that everything is clean and okay, but there is that deep layer of muck. What happens on the journey is you become like a blender, and all of the water becomes muddy.

This unhealthy water is the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing that goes on. You cannot stay in this state, just like you cannot drink polluted water for too long.

Love is the filter. Love filters out all of the muck, all of the impurities, leaving a jar that only has clean water in it. Then you have become a clear vessel through which Love can act.

Still Small Voice

That small still voice inside of you is actually not that small. That is who you are.

As you listen to that voice more frequently, it becomes larger and more present to you. That loud voice you hear now, your ego, progressively becomes smaller until it becomes as quiet as that small still voice is currently. Then you are residing fully in the peace that passes all understanding.

A Guiltless World

The thread that runs through this world is guilt, whether that be in our one on one personal relationships, group or nation dynamics, our structures and organizations we have set up such as courts, police, etc. Think about how often you project, how you blame or judge (this is seeing guilt) someone or something, even if you consider it "minor," even if it is only a thought in your head.

What would a guiltless world look like? It would --- would is not the right word as it is not hypothetical --- it is one of unending beauty and gentleness. This is the Kingdom of Love. This is what exists behind the false appearance we call the world.

When Jesus talked about Heaven on Earth and Heaven within you (one and the same), a guiltless world is what he was referring to. Jesus came here and offered himself in a great act of compassion to show us that we are not guilty, that sin does not exist for we have never separated from God, that we are Love, that we are eternal and "death" has no power over us.

Guilt, fear, and judgment are three legs on the same stool. When you remove one leg, the whole stool falls, revealing what was truly there --- God's Kingdom of Love.

Your Only Certainty

There is a certainty, not a belief, behind who you are. This certainty comes from God --- it is that simple. Beliefs change --- God/You does not.

You are One with Him and He is your identity. Your identity does not come from what your job is, ho much money you have, how smart you are, how you look, where you went to school, etc. Don't look to anything outside of yourself for confirmation of who you are. That is a foundation built on sand, because how much money you have, how you look, what your job is --- those can all change quickly.

Where God Is ...

Where He is present, guilt cannot be. Where He is present, self judgment cannot be. Where He is present, fear cannot be. Since He is One and all that exists, guilt, self judgment, and fear cannot exist.

We think these things exist, but like a mirage, they are only an appearance. Appearances are not real. They only seem real because we give the power of our belief to them, and anything we give the power of our belief to becomes our God.

We experience self judgment, guilt, and fear, but we are not these things. When we realize they have no power over us, we can drop them and live in the glory of God's Kingdom.

Be Cleansed

Fear is nothing more than ignorance of who you really are. It arises when we keep God out.

For when God's Light and the awareness of Truth shines onto your fear, it dissolves. It was based on what was false and what was created in your mind, in your thoughts, which kept you hidden from Him.

Do you fear showing Him and are you ashamed of what you have hidden from Him, or do you fear that you have kept something from Him and He may punish you for that --- or both? Fear creates completely irrational and delusional thinking.

God already knows what you have tried to hide from Him, and there is nothing that would ever stop Him from loving you --- that is why it is called unconditional Love. So surrender your fears, your hidden thoughts and beliefs to Him, and be cleansed in His Love.

The Will of God

The Will of God does not change. It is Love. It is through His Will that you were created out of Love. His Will is All, thus your Will cannot be different from Him.

Because we live in a world of duality, the appearance of choices is available to us. That is where intention comes in. We can set our intention to align with the ego or with God. We have never "left" the Will of God, but it is our choice of intention, our choice for God, which reveals that we have never left.

It Isn't Too Good To Be True

You can hear God speaking to you, be in holy communion with Him, every moment. Your beliefs prevent you from experiencing this.

You may believe this is not possible, as God is far away in Heaven or you have to go through an intermediary --- a religious leader who is "closer" to Him --- to connect with God. You may believe you are not worthy --- why would God interact with you on such a close and personal basis --- there is no way you could be so holy. You may believe that God is to be feared, thus you use that as an excuse or rationalize that it is not possible. You may believe that it is just to good to be true, that there can not be an answer to all of yours and the world's problems.

It isn't to good to be true, and it is the answer to all of your "problems." Reach out to Him --- He waits in infinite patience because this is what Love does. Not only do you long for Him because you are Love, He longs for you.

Become God's Goo


Most people would not describe a caterpillar as a beautiful creature, but in God, all things are possible.

The caterpillar climbs a tree to go high (raises its God consciousness) before forming a cocoon. To recreate itself, it goes inside itself --- a cocoon gives you a protective barrier to literally recreate yourself. You must do the same to recreate yourself in His image.

The change that the caterpillar makes is literally at a DNA level. It becomes a liquid goo before reforming as a butterfly. Then before the butterfly takes flight, it must build strength by breaking out of the cocoon. This is the strength of your Will in wanting to come back to Him.

When the butterfly breaks through, it is not only beautiful, but it flies with grace, effortlessly. It flies high and low, showing the bond between Heaven and Earth. It also now has antenna which help it navigate the world --- it is in the world but not of it.

And it brings great pleasure to those who encounter it, just as you bring great pleasure, and Light and awakening, to those who encounter you when you have become a new vessel through which He moves and shines.

That Special Relationship

That person in your life who you often have friction with is a rough diamond for you, and you act as a rough diamond for them.

When the two of you interact, it is like two rough diamonds polishing each other. You and the other person have both asked for this gift from the other, and there is so much friction, because it takes a very hard surface to polish a diamond (like another diamond).

When a diamond has been polished, it is a clear vessel of reflection and light. When you have dropped false beliefs and been polished, you are a clear vessel of God, reflecting His Light.

Be grateful for that other person who pushes your buttons, who triggers you, for they are doing it from Love to help you have a greater awareness of the Love that you are.

If You Can't Hear God

If you are having trouble hearing God, you have to remove the static of the world. For a week turn off the TV and the radio and don't read the paper. Take a walk in the woods every day for that week, and you will begin to hear the real world, a world of Love.

There is man's world, a world of the ego where everything appears as separate, and God's Kingdom, which is the true world and one of Unity. When we are enmeshed in man's world, when we believe it is real, then it is less likely we can hear God and be aware of our Divine nature.

Everything is frequency and vibration. The vibration of man's world, is much lower --- heavy as in weighing us down --- depression, anxiety, darkness. The vibration of God's Kingdom is Light --- freeing, joyful, the peace that passes understanding.

The vibration of the natural and animal world is Light because it is part of God's Kingdom. The frequency coming from man's world --- the electronics, the placing of idols before him such as money or fame, is dark and dense. There is nothing wrong with having great financial abundance, but is that your identity versus having your identity in God? If you have great financial abundance, what do you do with it? Do you use it to help others?

When we know God's Kingdom, we recognize that we are One and we are Co-creators --- everything that happens to us individually and collectively is part of how we are fulfilling our roles as Co-creators here. We are not separate from anyone or anything, from any event or experience.

When we are enmeshed in man''s world, we believe that we can be victimized --- victims can't exist in God's Kingdom because we are collectively choosing as the One. In man's world, because we see ourselves as separate, we don't take responsibility for everything that happens and we try to fix things by blaming and judging others. We believe we are right and others are wrong. In God's Kingdom, "right" and "wrong" don't exist. It is only God having an experience of Himself/Herself through us, and no experience is better or more holy than another.

Man's world is one of fear. God's world is one of Love. You cannot straddle two worlds. Which will you choose?

Build It On Rock, Not Sand

Don't try to live up to the expectations of society or the world. Don't look to these places for your salvation. This is building your house upon the sand. This is building your house, your identity, on what is false.

Can you even say what you are trying to live up to --- does it even matter? What is false is false --- it doesn't reflect what is Real. Even if everyone and everything around you operates in the false, it doesn't change what is Real. It doesn't change what is within you, for that is Real.

You can "pretend" that you are something you are not, but it doesn't change Truth. Build your house, build your identity, on the rock that is God. Build it on your divinity, on your Oneness with Him and all that is, even when everything and everyone around you "appears" to tell you something different.
