Romantic Love
You know that Love which you feel so strongly in the early part of a romantic relationship --- it is consistently there and it gives you great joy, like it is the greatest thing in your life? This is a recreation of your Love for Him. At a subconscious level you believe this other person fills the longing you have and ends the journey or search to come back to God's Love. No one recognizes this is what they are searching for. If they did, they would know that a relationship based with one person that is based on human love cannot be a substitute. But this is why so many people go from relationship to relationship. They believe that the "next" one will bring them what they want. They do not realize that is God they want. Human ego love will always disappoint --- that is why after the newness has worn off, they are disappointed and they blame the other person for not giving then what they want. You can find Divine Love through this other person if both people commit themselves to working through the ego disappointments and games. Underneath this falseness, within this other person, is God and His Love.

What You Give is What You Receive
By what you give, you choose to receive. You cannot give hatred without saying you should receive hatred back. When you give Love, you are saying that you are worthy of receiving Love. We acknowledge how we see ourselves by giving that, because you can only give when you have something to give. You must have Love in order to give it. And because you are Love, you have it to give in all instances.

You Will See ...
You will see what you think brings you joy. For some, this is innocence and Love. For others, this is pain, sin, and suffering. If it is these three that you believe will bring you joy, God continually brings you experiences and people that can awaken you and show you how distorted your belief system and thinking have become.

Your Power
Don't say what can't be done. Say what can be done. Jesus said we will do greater things than him. Was he not telling the Truth? If he can raise the dead, you can do anything you want through the power of your belief.

It is All One
There is nothing outside of you. Every flower that blooms and joyously gives it fragrance and beauty to the world blooms for you and in you. Every bird that sings a song of joy sings for you and sings within you. Every ray of sunshine, wherever it warms in the world, warms you and reflects the Light within you, the Light of your Father. Every act of Love blesses you and is created by you, because you are One with Him.

Every Time I Think of You ...
The following lyrics from the song by the Babys say it all. "Every time I think of you, it always turns out good." Every time you think of Him, it will always turn out good, so why don't you think of Him in every moment? He thinks of you, He is with you, in every moment.
Emotional Reaction
When you have an emotional reaction to something, like you get really angry, go beneath the surface. There is a progression of beliefs that are behind the reaction. It is not a surface belief like "he did this to me" that you want. Keep going and uncover the base belief around this. It will be something, something false, that you believe about yourself and likely about your relationship with God. If you never dig deep into those emotional reactions, you will continue having the same reactions to the same situations, which has been defined as insanity.

Of Service
If you are to be of service, let it happen naturally. God will place you in those situations where you are needed most. A smile or a hello to a stranger is as important as feeding the homeless.

Truth cannot be learned. It cannot be debated --- that is people's perception of what Truth is, not Truth itself. Truth is self evident. It can only be recognized.
He is All
When you have anger, or resentment, or bitterness, or anything that seems the opposite of His peace, it feels as if He is not present. This is completely false. It feels as if He is not present, because you self judge these "non peaceful" feelings. It is your self judgment which appears to cut you off from God, not the anger of the bitterness itself. He is All and He is present within All, including your "negative" feelings and thoughts. Don't fight against or self judge that which you don't like. Know that He is already there in the middle of it.

Your Expectations
Your expectations may be keeping you angry. Release the expectations and everything is a gift. Release the expectations and all your grievances go.

Recreating Yourself
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 the 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 has active antenna which help it to 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 to those who encounter you when you have become a new vessel through which He moves and shines.

When you truly want peace in your life, then you will have it. But you have to want the peace of God above all else.

In The Present
Grievances are time based. They exist only in the past with what happened, or in the future with what you think will happen. In the present moment grievances do not exist. For a grievance that has already happened, when you bring this to the present moment, not only is the power and effect taken away from it, it no longer exists, because there is nothing to be remembered in the Now. This is how you heal large grievances that have had a traumatic effect on you. Think of them not as happening in the "past," but think of them as happening right now, in the present moment. In the present moment is where God is found and all healing occurs, instantaneously.

Watch What You Say
When you speak, say nothing which would offend anyone. If you cannot say something which you would have no regrets about if the whole world were able to hear it, say nothing.

Fear Leads to ...
When you have fear, it leads you to hold grievances against individuals, groups, and even nations.

In Oneness there are no choices or decisions to make, because everything is the same.

How Can You be Any Closer to God Than One With Him?

Jesus Healed
Jesus was able to heal those who believed. Because their thought/belief was in alignment with the Kingdom of God, those he healed were able to receive what he gave and the effect was complete. It was a round peg going in a round hole. When we believe that God has our highest good and that we can receive blessings, this is what will happen to us.

Of Service
Being of service may or may not mean that you are recognized by anybody for that service. In fact, if you are doing the service because you are looking for recognition, you are not really being of service. For true service is selfless. There can be no motive. If we are a completely clear vessel that God expresses through to bless the world, these acts of service bring us great joy, solely because this is who we are in relation to Him.

Are You Listening?
God is communicating with you all of the time, without exception. He is "inside" of you and you are in holy communion with Him, and He is "outside" of you. Everyone and everything that crosses your path has His message --- the way someone smiles at you, how the sun shines on you, the silence when walking in he woods, the hawk that flies across the road right in front of you. Most people are not "listening" to all of this because they think that just the obvious communications are from Him. But it is All! If it were only some of the time, He would not be One.

Clogging the Divine Vessel
You are what you eat. You are what you say. You are what you think. You can be a clear vessel for Him to the extent that these things are not clogging your vessel. When you eat junk food or a lot of sugar or drink a lot of alcohol, that clogs your vessel. When you say hurtful words, especially speak things that are not true on purpose, when you try to demean someone else or have power over them with your words, that clogs your vessel. When you think negative thoughts, when you think hateful thoughts, jealousy, resentment, irritation, pride, or self pity, when you think you are not lovable, or capable, or One with Him, that clogs your Divine vessel. Of course, you cannot really shut Him out, because you are One with Him, but you can BELIEVE you have shut Him out, and that prevents you from feeling His Presence.

Your Magnificence
If you have ever observed male wild turkeys, they often walk around with their feathers or fan out. They are not boasting. They are being who they are and making a statement about their magnificence. As you walk the world, be who you are. Make a statement about your magnificence, about your divinity and how God shines through you. This is not about ego boasting. You don't have to say a word. By your posture, your smile, the way you enter a room or greet someone, you can express His Love and kindness, and you can express your holiness and magnificence as He works through you.

It's Easy to Love Animals
It's easy to love animals --- they don't say hurtful things to you or get mad at you. The love you feel for them, and the love you feel back from them, can be the same with any person. It is a matter of desire. How badly do you want to see what is false --- in that other person and in you? For them, can you look past their hurtful words, their bitterness or anger, their betrayal, their lies, to see the Christ within? For you, can you look past the false you by realizing that your anger, your defenses, your quick reactions and judgments when you are accused, are not the Real you, who is also the Christ, who is Love? What you feel with animals can be felt with everyone and everything. How badly do you want to be the Real you?

What you call miracles are acts which run counter to the physics of the world as the world sees it. But look at the false premise you are starting with --- this world is real and physical laws are immutable. In Heaven, in the consciousness of the Kingdom which Jesus operated within, you can create whatever acts within the dream you want.

Being Reborn
Remember that you will always be presented with circumstances, experiences, and relationships that make you feel uncomfortable, especially in the times that we are now. These are meant to help you grow, for you to see what is holding you back in terms of false beliefs about yourself and God. These are gifts that have been brought to you to help you see past appearances. When you are reborn, it is not an easy process. The birth canal squeezes you and sometimes you mve so slowly it seems that you are not making any progress. But you are, and He is with you through every trial, as you are being reborn in Him.
