Daily Light: April 2012

Monday, April 30, 2012
Comparison serves no purpose except to keep you feeling separate from God. There will always be someone smarter than you, better looking than you, richer, more accomplished, more spiritual, younger than you. But these are all appearances. When you compare, you place your faith in what is false. In God, comparisons become meaningless, for we are One. Oneness means no differences --- there is nothing to compare. It is all God. Is one love better than another love? There is just one Love, and you are a part of that Love.

No Limits
In anything you want to get accomplished, place no limitations on the top end. If it is a venture or project you want to happen, don't say it has to look this way or that way, especially don't say that it can't accomplish a certain level. When you believe there are limitations, you have just limited it. God is infinite, and what can be achieved when you get out of the way (which is placing no limitations) is also infinite. Your task is simply to feel the great joy you will have when this venture becomes very successful, AS IF it has already occurred. How this "looks" is not up to you. Be in the joy as if it has already happened and you don't have to worry about the details. The joy is the fertilizer that turns the acorn into a great oak tree.

Dreamer of the Dream
When you realize that you are in a dream and that you are the dreamer of this dream, then you can begin to awaken from the dream.
Thursday, April 26, 2012
If you are worried about something, move from your head to your heart. Fear comes from your mind, and fear thoughts are not of God. When you move to the language, thoughts, and feelings of your heart, this is where God resides, and fear is not possible. In your heart you live fully in the moment, always knowing the answer, and this dissolves fear, because your fear is always about a "future" what if scenario.

Everyone You Encounter
There are no accidental meetings. You draw to you everyone you encounter, whether that is a very "minor" passing on the street or a lifelong relationship. All of these encounters have the purpose of helping you to remember who you really are. As you see your Self (for there is only the One), as you see God, this spurs your remembrance. In this dream you have agreed with everyone you encounter to serve this role for them, as they serve this role for you. There is no other purpose than remembrance. You may think there are other purposes, such as interacting with someone to make money, to provide a worldly service, to be your spouse, etc. but those are only appearances. These are only the forms or the vehicles used to interact with that other person so that each of you can remember that you are Love and that you were created by God out of Love. This is true whether another person exhibits love or "anger/hate" at you, because hate, which is the appearance of the absence of Love, can be a form which is equally as good a teacher as its opposite. The form or vehicle has no meaning other than to help you remember. When you see this with true vision, you experience great gratitude and joy, because you realize what is being done for you, and you know that only Unity exists

No Exceptions With God
There are no exceptions when we speak of God. Either He is always working with and through you to create what you have chosen, or He is not. Either He always has your highest good, even when circumstances appear to be the complete opposite, or He doesn't. Either He is All, and you are One with Him, or you are completely separate from Him. Either He is Love, and He loves you unconditionally throughout eternity, regardless of anything you think or do, or He is not Love.

Look in the Mirror
If you don't like your life, look no further than the mirror. Do not blame any individuals or groups. You create, with God as He expresses through you, what happens to you. You are One with Him, and you have His creative power. You can use that power to create "good" or "bad." If you don't like what is happening in your life, you are using that creative power to create something you do not like, although you are probably not doing that consciously. What limiting beliefs about yourself run underneath the surface like a computer virus? The extent that these limiting or negative beliefs have power over you is the extent that "bad" circumstances will manifest in your life, and the opposite with positive beliefs is true. God gives you free Will as to how His creative power is used, and because he is All, what you believe is put in motion and created through the whole body of Christ. Do not take this post as shaming you if your life is difficult. Everyone walking this Earth, with the exception of maybe a handful of people, is working through their negative belief system, whether they realize it or not. But what must be understood is that the person in the mirror is the one fully responsible. Let there be no doubt. When you try to say that is not true, you are only delaying getting out of hell.

Prison Cell of Your Own Making
The Bible talks about people who lived to 900 or 1000 years old. Our society thinks that 100 years is old now. You have the body of Christ. You are eternal! God expresses through you. Do you not think that you can live as long as you choose? Your physical body is created by your spirit, just as Jesus created a new body when he resurrected. The reason our physical bodies decay is because we BELIEVE in limitations and that decay, death, is possible. What you believe in creates your experience. Remember, there are no limitations. You are One with God who is eternal and endless. When you speak of God, you don't speak of limitations, so don't do it when you speak of yourself and others. Don't think or speak about yourself in reference to a limitation as this reinforces something which is false. Temporarily, you may be sick or handicapped,, but this is something you are just experiencing, not who you are. This applies to every limitation you think about yourself, such as thinking you are not smart, not confident, not capable, not lovable, not pretty. You do this to keep yourself in a prison cell of your own making. Are you afraid of your own divinity?

True Joy
Recognize what brings you joy. Joy does not go away. It is not the excitement that ebbs and flows with the toys and trinkets of the world. That is ego based. True joy comes from God. True joy comes when we are just who we are, not some false identity that we pretend to be in this false world. True joy is natural --- it is our birthright. There is nothing we have to do to feel it except stop pretending to be something false. When we are a clear vessel for God, joy arises naturally, because we give selflessly, without taking away from ourself. We are powered by an endless Source, our Father. This is what Love does --- it gives of Itself endlessly. It is very simple. Recognize what gives you true joy and then do more of that.

You can move mountains. It is a matter of faith.

Ego Strategies
When you begin to give up all the ego games, strategies, and defenses, all of the ways that you try to control situations or people, you look back and you 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.

What Will You Defend to Your Death?
You are so comfortable in your strong opinions and beliefs. It makes you feel good to be so righteous. It doesn't matter what you would go to war over in order to defend "what you know is right." Do you know that these beliefs are not allowing Him in so that He can really show you who He is?

Are You Happy?
If you are not happy with your life, you can change that instantly. It is how you look at your circumstances or situation, not the circumstances themselves, which allows your God given joy to be revealed. The joy is always there --- you block it with how you see things, with false beliefs.

Are You Angry?
When it is time for you to view someone you hold grievances against with a higher vision of Oneness, it will happen. Until then you may be very angry with them.
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Be a Giver
As you walk through the world, be a giver of forgiveness. You might ask why forgiveness is needed when the strangers you encounter haven't done anything to you, but we are One, and there are no strangers. Everyone you encounter believes, very few at a conscious level, that they have sinned against God. Thus they are in need of forgiveness. Because we are One, as you forgive them, you offer forgiveness to your Self.

Are you allowing your natural feelings to arise or are you feeling what you think you should feel? If you are feeling what you think you should feel, this is originating from thought and is not a true feeling. For example, let's say that you are mad at a friend who you feel has betrayed you, and you find out that person has terminal cancer. Do you think that you can't be mad and you should have compassion? And if you don't feel that way, you are a "bad" person? This is where a lot of falsehoods intersect. First, self judgment is what cuts us off from God. So do not judge how you are feeling. If you are still feeling mad, honor that. Now, you may want to change that as it is does not bring you peace, but you can't change the anger by stuffing it or saying that it is inappropriate to feel it. Once you have accepted and honored that feeling of anger, then you can give it to God. This may not be the end of the anger, but you are allowing it to pass through you without resistance. When you have finally processed the anger and forgiven, then the compassion for this person will arise in you naturally, not forced by your thought that you should be feeling something.

The more hardened someone is in their belief system, the less they will see the magic, wonder, innocence, and reality of God's Kingdom, and the more they will judge others for their beliefs.
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Love is gentle, forgiving, accepting. Judgment is harsh, unforgiving, and not accepting.

Hearing God
Don't be embarrassed to tell someone that God has told you something or given you guidance. Hearing God and feeling His Presence and Love as guiding you is normal. Most people in the world do not believe this, and they discredit people who claim to know God in an intimate way, because they don't think this is possible and they fear a direct connection with God.

Toddlers are shown flash cards or other educational materials so they can have a head start in school. You are only "successful" in school if you get good grades, which enables you to get in to a "good" college, which then enables you to get a "good" job. When you have a good job, you can make a lot of money, and you can buy all kinds of nice things, take vacations, etc. When you have everything you could possibly want, you must be happy, or so it is said. All of these steps, all of society geared toward this, so we can be happy. What does this give us? It gives us families that are not together --- we lack community. Communities foster a remembrance of God --- "where two are gathered in His name." A community is not just a family. It is groups of families and friends who have chosen to closely live and work together, reflecting the wholeness that we are. The Native American and other indigenous cultures lived together in communities. They lacked for nothing for they realized that there was nothing they needed to achieve or gain to be happy. They knew that their happiness was intrinsic to who they were as an individual and also as part of the community, and their happiness was also reflected back to them through their relationships with others in the community and with their Creator. On this Easter, where we are joined with our families, we need to reflect on the importance of a community.

In Nature
It is important to be out in nature as much as possible. He expresses through everything, and when we are in nature, we are more easily reminded of His Kingdom. If you can walk in the woods at least several times a week, you will see from a totally different perspective, but keep the cell phone in the car.

When you surrender, you no longer fight against what you don't like. It is this acceptance of your situation, as is, that creates the opening for the situation to change.
Thursday, April 5, 2012
All beliefs are limiting, even those you see as "positive" beliefs. When we believe in something, we believe in some thing. This some thing, is defined by some type of boundaries or parameters. God is limitless, outside of boundaries, outside of time and space. We evolve from believing in God to knowing our Oneness with Him.

A Puzzle
When you buy a puzzle, you see the end vision of what it can be by looking at the box, but then you dump it out and you have to get there by putting all of the pieces together. Every time you put another piece in place, it makes it easier for the next piece because there are fewer pieces left and you are starting to see the image on the box. Similarly, when you are given a vision of something grand by God, you see what is possible --- you see the completed image. You don't know yet what the pieces are or how they fit together, but you know that God will give you all of the pieces. As you begin to put them in place, the direction you need to go, the pieces you need next, are revealed to you, and you can really see the finished product coming together. Know that when you are given a vision, it is always possible, even if you have no idea how you will get there, which is the case for most people. Trust that all of the pieces will be given at the appropriate time, for a piece of the puzzle cannot go into place until the pieces around it are in place

Vision of Christ
See with the vision of Christ, see all of your brothers and sisters as sinless, and all of your "problems" will go away. For the "sin" and the "problems" disappear in His Kingdom.

Are you successful in the world, successful in God, or both? We create through the power of our thought and belief. The more you see, believe, and know that something will happen AS IF it has already happened, even if it has not happened or manifested, the quicker it will manifest. You can use this power for "good" purposes or for "bad" purposes. There are many people who are adept at using this power to be successful in the world but who do not know their Oneness with and do not have God in their heart. Hitler was "successful" and fell into this category. Then you have the opposite end with Jesus, who was "successful" in God. You can be successful as the world measures success and still be successful in God. In fact, if you are successful in God, you can be successful in bringing great abundance to yourself, some attributes of which are measured in wordly terms such as wealth or right use of power.

Light of God
Just like lampposts that are strung along a dark road, there are those putting their Light into the world by coming to a remembrance of their Oneness with God. They are illuminating a path for others to follow by creating a web or a sea of Light and by helping others to remember that each of us is one of those Lights
