Don't Have an Answer?
When a direction or an answer to a predicament or situation does not present itself, do you push to find one? Or do you trust that you have given it to Him and that He will show you the answer at the right time? This is called faith.

Greatest Error
The greatest error you can make is to be untruthful with yourself.

Looking Past
You can choose to be offended by something, or you can choose to not be. The key is that it is your choice. It doesn't depend on what the other person said or did. You can see it as the most "horrific" thing in the world, but you have the power of choice in terms of how you react to it. Why would you not want to be offended? It does not bring you His peace, nor His power. The powerful are those who are able to look past --- look past the offense, look past the betrayal, look past the harsh words. For when we look past what is only an appearance, we see God within everything and everyone.

Loving Not Judging
You can't transform the world by judging an individual, group, or nation. This includes judgment of yourself. The appearance of this world is a dream, actually a nightmare of greed, selfishness, and chaos, created because of judgment. God is Love. We return to that Love, we see past this dream to see Him in everything and everyone, by loving. We can only transform the world by loving, not by judging.

Faith is not something that is increased by things such as miracles or divine coincidences happening outside of you. Because you are One with God, your faith is complete. As you release your false beliefs, you uncover these things which are blocking you from seeing that your faith has always been there. It is not the miracles which increase your faith. It is your complete faith which creates and brings you the miracles in your life. The more evident this reality becomes, the greater the number of miracles and divine happenings which you bring to yourself. Your faith will be tested, not because you are being punished, but so that you will see how strong your faith truly is.
Specialness sees differences. Specialness thinks that God favors one person or group over another. Specialness is associated with sin as opposed to forgiveness.

Healing only happens within Unity, as you are united in purpose with God. Healing always brings things together. Healing begins first with the mind and then affects the body. Jesus was able to physically heal those who were already consistent in thought with the Kingdom.

Love Is Who You Are
You are Love. You can no more not give of yourself endlessly than a snake cannot shed its skin.
Friday, August 24, 2012
Be Action Based
Be action based, not results based. Follow the actions that God gives to you. Don't do something with expectations of the results, because you may be surprised and/or disappointed. We do not have a large enough perspective to know why He is asking us to take a certain action. We may think we know, but this is ego arrogance. All we can know for certain is that He has asked us to take a certain action, and we know that He always has our highest good. And that is true obedience.

Being Grateful
If you are having a hard time being grateful, then think of another situation you could be in that would be much worse, like an illness of a loved one, loss of your job or house, etc. You can always be grateful for where you are at. You can always be grateful for being alive and for God giving you life.

One Decision
You are a mirror for everyone you encounter. Is the reflection dirty, or is it spotless? Your mirror is a reflection of Him. It is always perfectly clean, perfectly pure, but it may be covered with dirt. This dirt is easily removable, if you are willing. But you have to drop all false beliefs you have about yourself, about others, and about your relationship with Him. Is it more important to you t o be "right," to hold the anger, resentment, and bitterness, to continue being seen as a victim, or is His peace more important? Don't try to muddle the choice. It is very black and white. You have to be willing to give it ALL up. He has actually made it very easy to reach Him. One decision is all you have to make.

What Do You Want to Change?
You do not have the power to change anything related to your experiences unless you change the belief system and thoughts which are creating those experiences.
Monday, August 20, 2012
Be Passionate
Be passionate about something. This doesn't include making money. Having that as your primary reason doesn't work anymore. Be passionate about a venture, a project, a cause --- be passionate about being alive! When you do that, great abundance will come to you. This will include not only financial abundance but so much more --- the fruits of the Spirit --- Love, peace, and joy. And these are what you truly long for.
Wonder surrounds you, everywhere. You only have to look and listen. Stop being preoccupied with things that don't matter and are not real. Take a walk in nature and really listen, be absorbed, in what is around you.

First Judging It
How often do you determine what your response will be to a situation by first judging it instead of letting it be what it is and letting Him heal it?
Saturday, August 18, 2012
Non Judgment
It is a false belief that judgment is powerful. Judgment shows weakness. When you judge, when you believe that you are "better" than an individual or group, you are not secure in who you truly are, which is a part of Him. For if you know that you are One with God, you will also know that everyone and everything is also One with Him, and thus One with you. Non judgment is powerful, because it acknowledges who you are. Out of non judgment arises great peace and joy, for these are the inherent attributes of Oneness. These are the gifts of the Kingdom.

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, August 16, 2012
Without Fear
Do you know what it feels like to see the world and make decisions without fear? When the clouds of fear have parted and the Sun of Truth strongly shines through that very first time, you will remember who you are, you will remember that you are Love. Nothing will ever be the same. You will no longer be able to tolerate a fear based, completely false, existence.
Love is revealed as Itself or as a contrast to Itself. If a terrorist renounces violence, Love is revealed. If that terrorist continues violence, Love is revealed as a contrast to that violence.

The Purpose
If the purpose is for you to return in your recognition to Oneness with God, which it is, then the means have been given to you for that purpose, even if you don't recognize the means.

All of God
There is nothing inherently "bad," for everything is of God. It is how it is used that is "right" or "wrong." Does someone use alcohol or work or the internet to not be present, to escape, to numb the pain, to turn their face from Him?

How the Laws Work
When Jesus said "with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again," he was not talking about being punished. This is how the body of God and its laws operate. Because we are One, that which is done by you is done to you. This includes your thoughts, words, and actions. If you say an unkind word, or cheat, or lie, at some point the same will come back to you. If you treat everyone with respect and say a kind word to everyone you encounter, and you take actions which benefit others, the same will come back to you. This coming back, like a boomerang, rarely happens immediately and by the same person, so many do not understand the law, because they do not see the correlation. If someone does understand the law, they would realize how important it is to try and be pure in their thoughts, words, and actions.

When you feel His Presence within and around you, you can be doing any activity, having any experience, or doing nothing. You don't prefer one thing over another. You just want Him, and because He is in everything and everyone, you can experience Him in everything and everyone.
Saturday, August 11, 2012
Why Were You Created?
Why were you created? So that you could be the object of His Love
Friday, August 10, 2012
His Peace
You can feel the peace of God everywhere, because it is not about physical location, although there may be a physical place where you feel His Presence more. You can feel His peace anywhere, because the peace is inside of you.

Being a Blessing
With everyone you meet, ask how you can be a blessing to that person. Ask yourself silently while meeting and talking with them. Even if that person is attacking or blaming you, ask God how you can respond so that you will be a blessing of Love to yourself and that person.

Our Highest Good
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.

Love Endures
Love endures. When it is all finished, when Heaven and earth pass away, Love will be there.
Monday, August 6, 2012
What Has Meaning?
When we speak of the world having no meaning, it is not enough to want to get out of it in the sense that you are not attached to things of the world. You also have to desire something that does have meaning, something that does have value. You have to want above all else God's Kingdom and the peace, Love, and joy that comes with that.
Sunday, August 5, 2012
Giving Love
Receiving Love is nice, but what you really want to do is give Love. This is where your true joy, the joy of God lies. Every time you love, you reenact Creation. For we were created so that God could love us. When you love, you are experiencing His Love, His joy.

Let God
Let God do the heavy lifting. Actually, let Him do all the lifting. The belief that you can do anything of yourself is false and actually impedes what you want to achieve.

In Every Moment
In every moment you make a choice. You can choose anger, conflict, and the need to be right, which comes from your ego, or you can choose that you don't want any of those, which is the choice from your true Self.
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
God does not change. He is Changeless. How we have viewed Him, and what we were capable of understanding about Him, has changed. So in the Old Testament He is a God of justice, of punishment, because this was what was needed to draw people away from idol worship to worship of the One God. But as Jesus told us, God is Love. This is not a human parental love that is conditional. It is an unconditional Love --- Love that has no conditions and which does not include judgment or punishment.
