How Do You Know?
How do you know for certain that something is going to happen, like a new job or the coming together of a venture? You are creating it! It is up to you. This is your dream. If you don't know, truly know, that you can make it happen, then you don't believe in the power of the creative force that you have from your Oneness with God. Which is basically saying that you have some doubts that you are One with Him.

Punishing God or God of Love?
You can look at something you are experiencing as punishment, or you can look at it as an opportunity to grow stronger in your faith and grow closer to Him. The former goes hand in hand with the belief that God is a punishing God; the latter goes hand in hand with a God who is Love.
Without You
Without YOU, creation cannot unfold.

What Jesus Did
You create your outer circumstances through your thought and beliefs, just as Jesus did. The only difference is that when Jesus thought something, it manifested immediately, because he knew his Oneness to the fullest extent. Many people do not believe that their thought creates their outer circumstances, because there is a time delay to that happening, so the two are never associated. If they could see what truly happens, they would be very diligent on not allowing negative thoughts.

Acceptance of yourself automatically translates into acceptance of others.

Honor All Paths
We must honor all paths. There are certain paths that may speak to you more and you may practice certain rituals or prayers of that path. But even when it appears that a person, group, or religion is not on the path to God, this is only an appearance. We are all on the path, a path of remembrance, to God because God is All and we are One with Him. We cannot, not be on a path to Him. Now maybe someone or a group appears to be on a path that is going in the wrong direction, away from Him (going "backward" to go "forward"), but that is not for us to judge. We don't have a high enough perspective. He has All and He is taking care of All, bringing everyone to Him in His timing and in the way best suited for them to drop false beliefs and return to Love. Because in the end all paths or branches merge into the trunk of Love, as He is Love.

Angry at the Act
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.
How To Feel True Joy
Joy comes from blessing others. This does not mean that it comes from you. It comes from Him. If it comes from you, one of several things will happen. You cannot bless or give endlessly, because you are not giving from an endless source. You may have resentment or bitterness around the giving, because you may feel an obligation to do it, like this is what God wants you to do. And you may be giving to be recognized for it, which is an ego need. When you truly get out of the way and become a clear vessel through which He can bless and give to others, you can do this without end, and you derive the greatest joy, because it is His joy.

Love Surrounds You
Love surrounds you. It is calling to you, "see me here, see me there." The wind whispers your name. The trees and blades of grass bend toward you in Love, telling you that you are a part of that same Love, telling you that you are holy and part of His glory. The birds sing your praises. This is all for you! You only need to listen. You only need to look. You only need to trust. Under the falseness that is this world, under the static and activity of what you have to do to live in this world, this Love is there. It will always call to you, for you are its Beloved.

Love That is Free of Expectations
A relationship without expectations is a divine one. When there are no expectations, no unconscious burdens, there can be true Love. For Love is only true if it is free, and to be free, it must have no strings attached. That is why our Love for God is free. He does not require that we Love Him. We choose to love Him out of our free will, and that is why the Love we have for Him, and the Love he has for us, is so beautiful and holy.

Being Hurt by Someone You Love
When you are hurt by a loved one, I can tell you that it is a gift for you to better see who you are, and this is the case. But this is really hard to hear when you are in the pain. Allow yourself to feel the pain, but in order to come out of it, you must move to a higher perspective. In the end, all that matters and what should drive you is your peace and joy. And if you stay in the resentment, bitterness, and anger, not giving them to Him and allowing yourself to heal, you will not have that peace and joy. Remember, it is not about punishing the other person. It is about what is best for you, and what is best for you is also what is best for the other person, because we are One. When you release the negative emotions, you free up yourself and that other person. Maybe you don't want to free up that other person, but you will never have His peace and joy if you don't.

Who Leads
A strong mind can be of great value if we do not allow it to lead. Allow Spirit to lead, and when you need the mind, you pick it up like you would when you need to use a hammer. You use it and put it back down. Why is it important to let Spirit lead? Because this is where your peace and joy lie! The other way does not lead to this same outcome.

Follow Your Joy
Out of your joy comes abundance. Or to put it another way, follow your joy, and abundance will come. When we follow our joy, not ego excitement but true inner joy, we are set on His track. Joy is how we know that we are going the right direction, and this makes it easy to make decisions. Because His Kingdom is one of peace, Love, joy, and abundance, when we follow our joy, abundance will automatically be there. This abundance encompasses the fruits of the spirit and those of this world, including financial and material abundance.

A Homeless Person
When you see a homeless person, do you judge that person's experience as inferior? Do you think that having guaranteed food and shelter is "better" than not? First, remember that nothing of this world is guaranteed. It will all fade away into dust. What is guaranteed is His Love, His abundance, and you must look to Him as the Source, not the world. So with the homeless person, how do you know that this is not the "best" experience for that person. Maybe this is what they have chosen at a level of Spirit to come back to Him. Maybe they recognize that the trinkets and trappings of the world act as an impediment to Him. Maybe they have appeared to you to show you this, to not have you become homeless, but to show you how to be in the world but not of it, not attached to anything. Then again, maybe not. What can be recognized here is that we do not have the high perspective to judge anyone's experience. This leads to humility, and humility leads to Him.

Who Are You?
Are you saturated in Him? Are you saturated in His Love? Do you feel Him all around and in you? Open to the miracle of who you are, your glory, your holiness, your divinity.

Need to Control
Everyone at some point has a need to control situations or people, some to a much greater extent than others. We try to control because we think this keeps us safe, but this is false. Safety is from God, not the world. When we try to control, we are trying to keep down our fear, but we actually have more fear in trying to do this. Look behind your motives and beliefs in wanting to control situations. It will tell you a lot about who you are and your relationship with Him. I will be on silent retreat and I will not be posting for a number of days. I send you all great blessings and Love during this time.

From Victim to Warrior
A victim is always looking to project blame outside themselves. It is never about them, except for their belief that they are being "crapped" upon by individuals, groups, the world, or God. A victim never takes personal responsibility. A spiritual warrior takes responsibility for their actions. Even if they have a bad reaction and hurt someone's feelings, they are not only willing to say they are sorry, they are willing to examine their motives, because they realize that they do not have His peace and joy if they act like a victim. They are willing to move beyond their limited view, even if this involves some pain, as they realize that there is a much broader perspective than the colored glasses they view the world through. When they have a bad reaction, a spiritual warrior asks for God's help in doing it different the next time. They are willing to confront their fear and need to control in order to move closer to Him, and as they do this, they are blessed with miracles of Love and His Grace as they move through the world. They are increasingly able to look past the words and actions of others, to understand the wounding and the reasons they may have spoken these words or done these actions, and to see the God within the other person. To move from a victim persona to one of a spiritual warrior is the greatest miracle that can occur in one's life on this Earth.

God is the "I AM." Don't place Him in a box by assigning certain qualities to Him, for He is All. If you say that He is one thing, then you are also saying that He is not the opposite. There is nothing He is not, or unity would not exist.

What is Real
Regardless of how rich and famous you are, it still comes down to finding joy and God's Love through your relationships
A Cause
If you always have a cause which you feel strongly about and about which you always have to be talking and convincing others, you may be 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)?

The Pathway to God
The emotions are the pathway to God, for God is Love. If your emotions are frozen from an earlier time, such as childhood, then you must bring them up to an adult level of expression.

God Accepts and Loves
God accepts and loves you unconditionally, without question. Can you not do that for yourself? If you don't love and accept yourself fully (and this is not for you to judge or shame yourself), who is correct --- you or Him?

Help "me'
Father, help "me" get out of the way so that I can become a clear vessel through which you move and have your Being. Allow me to be your hands, your eyes, your ears, and your mouth so that I may walk the world in your Grace. May your joy and peace and Love be spread with every word I say, with every smile I make, for I see you, and nothing else.

Give to Yourself
People get angry or depressed when they believe that their partner is not giving them what they need or want. But in reality they are not getting what they need from themselves, and they are projecting this on to their partner. If they never see this pattern, they will go from relationship to relationship, always projecting, and never willing to take a look at who they are and what they are projecting.
