The Essence of Life

I was struck by the beauty of the night sky last night. I wondered how anyone could believe that all life–us, the world, our galaxy, the universe–was not fashioned by some magnificent being, some creative force. And, no matter what we humans do to each other and our planet, the Creator must be a force of good because only goodness can radiate such beauty in the face of humanity’s destructive, egocentric actions. As I have aged, I see beauty everywhere: the sky, a tree, a leaf, a dragonfly or a rock, birds and other critters. Beauty is everywhere because it is the essence of all living things on Earth.

And children, even in apartments where their lives are full of stress, play, laugh and learn the fine art of negotiation. Boys will be boys and say things like, “My light saber has more power than yours,” and in response: “It does not! I challenge you to a sword fight!” I’ve watched their plastic-sword fights, which are usually quite short because something else soon catches their attention. I have seen girls with their heads together. “I can’t believe she talked to him,” plotting some sort of payback. Sometimes kids said hi and came along for part of my walk. They told me about themselves, what was on their minds and I tried to offer a  kind word or two. Our own beauty is in learning who we are and why we are here. Our inner beauty is always present, waiting only for us to knock on its door.

I thought about our Creator (Him/ Her/ Spirit/ Light Within) as I looked at the sky last night and wondered how He feels when our hearts swell with love for Him/Her. Having endlessly broadcast Love in our direction, it’s got to be pretty wonderful when it’s finally returned. There really are only two ways to live, two worlds, and we get to choose: See the beauty and feel the Love, or separate and feel the pain and struggle. We, on this planet, are the sheep who got lost and who the Master comes after so that not even one beloved lamb is lost.

A Pipe Ceremony and Blessings for the New Year, A Guest Post by Kim P of Afternoon Storm

A beautiful ceremony to say goodbye to the old year and bless the new one, from my friend, Kim P., of the blog, Afternoon Storm. Thanks, Kim!

Every year at our home we do a little pipe ceremony just before 12:00 on New Year’s Eve. Often it is just my hubby and I, but sometimes our two kids (who are 19 and 22 now) have joined in. I use my pipe to create sacred space and we light a candle. Then we do four rounds of prayers.

The first is to identify the “things” we want to let go of from the old year.

In the second round of prayers, we each speak the names of the new patterns, beliefs or relationships that we would like to bring into our lives.

With the third round, we say the names of people we know or love to whom we want to send loving energy.

With the fourth round, we say prayers for the planet. It feels like a really good way to end the year and welcome in the new year.

The Power of Prayer, a Guest Post from Oscar, the 11:11 Progress Group

Prayer art “Today there are a lot of people in this world who are working for the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven. Few among them enjoy the fame and glory of being considered among ‘the great men and women of history’. However, those who work tirelessly, and their motivation does not lie in their being accepted by the masses, achieve great spiritual progress for themselves. Those who live the Will of the Father are contributing to the creation of the realities that His will desires to create.

“Some of you believe that you need to be in a position of greater influence in order to be able to guide others towards better goals. Let me tell you that the best way to appeal to the human soul is through the presence of the Thought Adjuster. Focus your intent directly on the hearts of those you wish to influence. Let your Thought Adjuster be the one that establishes contact with the divine presence in others, expressing your wishes with the highest measure of truth, beauty, and goodness. Every effort you make in this fashion will never be wasted.

Remember the power of prayer, because through the circuit of the Father you can reach any creature in the universe, even if this connection may not be direct, or even conscious, for any of the parties involved. God is present inside you – in each and every one of you – and through His presence in you, you can reach any other personal being in existence.

“How do you think our Father works in this world? Does He show up at United Nations meetings to tell you what you need to do? The Father speaks directly to the hearts and the minds of His creatures. Then, it is up to them to decide what path they will take. In this world, you can likewise work in this fashion, with your love for your peers, and your desire to create a better world through prayer.

“All of you who work in your respective communities, and circles of influence, know that you are not impotent when the time comes to promote the changes you want to see in this world. Live the very change you wish to see, and project your love and your positive energy to those who lead you – the ones you have elected to express your collective decisions. Work with your hands, but remember that your prayers and your love can reach all the way to Paradise itself, and know that you have the support and the power of the Creator Father of all beings and things.”

Our Need for the Divine Feminine and the Great Dark Cloud, A Guest Post from Michael Brine

By Michael Brine
wild.brine621@gmail.com
http:www.missionignition.net/btb

We have created an unbalanced world because we allow rule by dominant male energy, which so often ignores the nurturing and compassionate energy of feminine energy and the Divine Feminine.We have also given our power to some of the most divisive religions imaginable. By all means, enjoy your own religious/spiritual beliefs but when we attempt to impose these beliefs on others–often creating war in doing so–we cross a line we should not cross. Each soul born on earth is born to choose his or her own walk. We only have to look at the Middle East to see this sad situation at its worst. However, it also exists within our own societies and grows less subtle each day.

Regarding the issue of living in a harmonious word, we also need ask ourselves if it is necessary to kill other life forms to satisfy our appetites. As I leave these ideas with you, I include below an important message from The Aquarian Passion Play.

Thank you ,
Michael Brine

The Planetary Deadline  from The Aquarian Passion Play

“If we could look down from outer space upon the Earth with clairvoyant vision we would see the auric field of the planet as a murky ball of seething mist and fog. We might stand aghast at beholding this great dark cloud of subtle matter, which would evidence itself to be of a density and thickness that indicated not only impenetrability but also those conditions that are unfavourable to life and which make all things appear unclear and distorted.

Thus it would be appreciated that there is a pressing need for change and global decontamination, for preparation for all those upon Earth who would be ready to weather well the approaching purificatory storm and, moreover, who would take advantage of it. The effects of the cumulative and harmful thought-patterns and attitudes of humanity are pervasive worldwide, and are sorely evident today not only in the lives of mankind, but also upon the physical planet.

Man has generally treated the Earth with gross disrespect for far too long. He has regarded his home together with its mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms most carelessly, and has repeatedly demonstrated an attitude of negligence that expresses the erroneous view that the resources of the planet are for his own selfish use and exploitation alone. Humanity, as a whole, has completely overlooked the fact that Mother Earth – Gaia – is a spiritual being, engaged in her own evolutionary development, and lovingly endeavours to provide a perfectly balanced environment for the peaceful and harmonious existence of multifarious life-forms, including human beings.”

Faith or Fear? A Guest Post by Mike Hopkins

By M.N. Hopkins

This inspirational poem was written by Mike Hopkins in 1998, before a lecture. He included it in a series of inspirational writings that were published in 2002. He put it into poetic form and republished it recently on his blog, http://mnhopkins.blogspot.se.

 

fear-or-faithFaith renews

Faith restores 

Faith opens the doorway to one’s heart 

And one’s freedom from fear 

For where there is faith 

There is love, 

And where there is love

Fear cannot exist. 

So

Go in faith 

And you open a gateway 

To a new kind of living. 

One 

That many have dreamed about 

For countless centuries

A Precipice and Changes in Consciousness, a Guest Submission from Michael Brine

From Michael Brine

Dear Readers,

woman at precipiceI have attached three selections from the book, Through the Looking Glass, by Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf, Part Two. I hope they will help you to better understand the times in which we live.

“Humanity sits poised at a precipice; in front of us is an undeterminable pathway, behind us is the shell of a decaying age. We are at the crossroads of our experience; already actions, as well as thinking processes, are being set which will determine the nature of a new and extraordinary destiny. Our survival as a thinking species and, as well, all living things upon the Earth, now hangs in the mercy of the Winds of Change . . . winds that no longer blow quiet warnings; rather they carry with them a somewhat foreboding message and always deliver a swift altering of our contrived reality through extremely volatile occurrences.

The Division Bell has rung and marks and denotes the polarities of consciousness as we experience conflicts within ourselves, our thoughts, moral values and the everyday dealing with a society that seems to suffer from a total absence of value and ethics. Society as a whole is drawn into the spin, created of a controlled media.”

“Disease and Pharmaceutical/Allopathic Medical Corruption: Many corrupt corporate demigods, who have plundered an unsuspecting world, sometimes defenseless third world populations, have created an entire generation of peoples addicted to their chemical dependencies, “Drugs for Health,” thus enslaving them, creating predictable life spans.

Finally, a quote from the section: “History Rewritten: Human Evolution and Starseed Movement: There will be a series of explorations revealing our true relation to those who come from the stars. At first these discoveries will be opposed by organized religions who will then embrace them in the face of proven scientific evidence. This will cause a further breaking down in the influence of traditional religious doctrines. The revealing of ancient documents and artifacts will be proof that the Nazarene’s influence upon mankind was far more involved and known amongst the world’s people than previously perceived.”

My intent with this column is to get us thinking outside the proverbial “Box” we have been conditioned to believe, by presenting the thoughts of those who I have learned to respect. Whether or not you choose to consider these ideas is your choice, of course.

Comments are certainly welcome, including critics, either here or at my e-mail address: wild.brine62I@gmail.com.  Other writings  by and materials from Michael Brine maybe viewed  at.missionignition.net/btb and here at: https://notesalongthepath.com/?s=Michael+Brine&submit=Search

Fertile Imagination or Reality?

From Michael Brine
wild.brine621@gmail.com

In his book, The Silent Road, by Major Wellesley Tudor Pole, c.1960, he wrote the following as his ‘Forward.’ In view of my more recent revelations relating to Off Worlders (Aliens, if you must!), it seems timely to quote this remarkable man once again, with whom I had the privilege of working, all too briefly, in 1961/62.

Wellesley Tudor Pole circa 1965

Wellesley Tudor Pole circa 1965

“Recognition of the truth or value of the supernatural experiences recorded in this book cannot be communicated by the author to his readers.

Awareness of reality must inevitably be reached interiorly. For this reason I have no desire to bring conviction to those who may regard what I have written as being incredible or the product of a fertile imagination. It is well, however, to remind ourselves occasionally that in almost every field of research the so called fantasies of yesterday often become the facts of today. The horizons of the mind are not fixed: they are expanding ceaselessly. Therefore it is suggested that what I have recorded should be read with a mind free from preconceived ideas or set opinions. The search for Truth is a personal and solitary adventure. All we can do is to share ideas with one another, in the hope that by doing so, the light of understanding may bring us a little nearer to Reality. In the long run it is through silence, and not through speech, that Revelation is received.”

~W.T.P., London, SW1, England, 1960

P.S. – Tudor Pole worked with the King and Churchill during the 2nd WW. It was he who started the Silent Minute in which the whole British Nation would stop at 9:00 each night before the news and send out prayers for peace. After the war, while questioning some of the German Gestapo Officers, one was asked, “Why do you think Germany lost the war?” His reply: “You had something we could not defeat – Your Silent Minute!”

Interesting.

Why Does Evil Exist? A Guest Post from Paramahansa Yogananda

The problem of evil in human lives has always perplexed me. Paramahansa Yogananda writes extensively on, “The Role of Satan in God’s Creation.” I will periodically post more of his East/West teachings here. Quoted from: The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You, By Paramahansa Yogananda

“An ideal existence is not impossible, but it is for a different time and realm reserved for those who have graduated from the learning assignments of earth life. For the ordinary man in his present stage of evolution, a life without difficulties would be of little value. No lessons of growth would be learned, no transformations of inflexible natures into Godly consciousness, no compelling incentives to seek and know one’s Maker.”

An Intro to “Secrets of the Ancient World”

cayce bookI’ve been reading SECRETS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD by Little and Van Auken. While most of Edgar Cayce’s (the Sleeping Prophet) readings were about healing for those who asked him for help, sometimes in explaining what was going on with them, information came about other subjects such as Creation and the fall from heaven.

While in a trance state, Cayce described the five root races. When spiritual, free-will companions of the Creator grew curious about the rest of creation, they projected themselves into a denser world and became the first root race. The second root race occurred when these fluid beings created humanoid forms, which they occupied.

Over millions of years, these humans lost more of their connection to the Creator and could no longer come and go out of the forms they created. They retained some of their spiritual powers, but used them mostly for selfish reasons. They created ‘things,’ thought-projections in animal/human and plant/human forms, to be their slaves. This period coincides with the origins of Atlantis, about 200,000 B.C. and they were the third root race.

The Intelligence that spoke through Cayce, says that Creation consisted of Continue reading

The Winds of Change, A Guest Post by Michael Brine

“Today man stands at the decisive crossroads of his fate.”
Major Wellesley Tudor Pole – 1960

By Michael Brine
wild.brine621@gmail.com

The “Winds of Change” are blowing across this world of ours and it is because of an awareness of this that I have chosen to write these articles over the last several years. I am fully aware that there are those who may question my ideas, or that I touch on sensitive issues relating to their faiths, perhaps creating some discomfort. No insults intended. Happily, I also know from responses I’ve had, that there are a good many who are supportive and even intrigued by some of the insights penned. This, of course, is encouraging.

Let me be clear. These “insights” are not just mine; they are shared by many others around the world. This realisation is because of the new element we are able to use in this ‘modern’ world we now share – the Internet! In the past, many of us felt we were operating in isolation, but the internet has brought us all together and with the happy awareness that we are not alone in our understanding.

The old ways no longer serve us. We must be open to change. Like it or not, change is happening. Its intensity will only be increasing as we move forward into this new awareness that is lighting the path now unfolding before us. The litter we are leaving behind must be seen for what it was, and the damage it has done to the human psyche. Control through fear can only exist in darkness. A new light dawns. A new awareness is being felt. The darkness is fading, and a new dawn is spreading its Light across the world. Hope is being replaced by a new inward surge of understanding and an inner awareness that is beyond words: Love.

It all boils down to awareness – awareness – awareness! Searching for a clearer path and knowing has been an interesting journey for me. Opportunities came and went, and like a dog I would sniff the air, put my nose to the ground and follow a particular scent, check it out, piss on the odd tree, and then move on–or not. It all boiled down to awareness!

I now realise that there is no room for me to distrust or to give my power to fear; instead, I have compassion for how much unawareness there is–part of the sad conditioning of sick civilisations that are in need of undressing. By this I mean, throwing away our soiled clothes, spreading our arms, and welcoming the breeze of Love that can now begin to caress us in a warm embrace. We have to trust enough to risk undressing, exposing our vulnerabilities with AWARENESS! Until we can do this, mistrust will continue to be the influence and we will bow our heads and weep.

We only have to look at Syria or Iran and their pathetic leaders to see the seeds of distrust once again sickening their people, as well as humanity as a whole, into another ocean of despair. Once again, we see the religions mankind–and I mean ‘mankind’–has created, purposely gaining control through fear. Once again history repeats itself, and we have learned nothing, OR have we? Those beautiful and special Messengers of the past that have blessed humanity have had their messages of Love so disembowelled to satisfy a lust for power by men that it has divided us from each other–sadly, so very successfully. Satan himself couldn’t have done a better job!

Well, now wait – listen — there is a “Cleansing” about to take place the likes of which we have never seen on this Earth before. In the meantime those who are waking up and have garnered a degree of awareness must sit on the sidelines and watch in sadness once again, as in Syria and Iran, but also sadly at times, even within more individual situations. The amputations of the heart casts a shadow of fear over the human family.

Be prepared. The storm IS coming, and when it has unleashed its fury, it will pass; then there will be a silence across the lands and oceans, the likes of which have never been experienced before. Then – slowly — there will be a slight breeze that will begin to caress us – and like a quiet whisper we will begin to hear its gentle voice – and our awakening to a new dawn will hopefully begin. A new Sun will begin to bathe us in its fresh and gentle light.

In the meantime we must trust who we are and find peace within ourselves, for you are me and I you, and the embrace will go out to enfold us all after the storm. Storms are for cleansing – remember how fresh the air is after one? Remember?

To Find Our Way Home, a Guest Post from 11:11 Progress Group

Michigan, US of A, April 22, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Vital Ingredients.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: The message for today is about the importance of developing a spiritual map for the afterlife, and the main ingredients needed to assure your transition for the continuance of identity and spiritual continuity. There are far too many on Urantia [Earth] that are passing through without a map — believing in nothing and finding bewilderment, fear, and darkness when the transitions come. This is not what Christ Michael wants for you. He wants you to know the way, know the truth, and have life everlasting, and so we are here, your teachers, to enlighten you, that you may know, and those in your circles may know through you, the way home.

1. The first ingredient is to recognize the Source, the Creator Father, The Almighty Upholder, the Creator of all life in the grand universe and beyond, and understand the sovereignty of God as universal, all wise, everywhere present, all powerful, and eternal.

2. The second ingredient is to understand the paradox of God:

a. God is furthest from you: Man being created in an imperfect state, most unlike God, but created to learn, grow, and gain experiential wisdom, to become godlike through the ascension process — to learn how to love.

b. God is closest to you: Through the agency of the Indwelling Spirit, a fragment of divinity that lives and works in your mind, teaching, leading, coordinating, and piloting you through life, giving as much love and assistance as your free will may allow to ‘spiritize’ your mind and your thinking for the development of your soul — the embodiment and essence of who you really are — the survivable vessel for your continuing life on the mansion worlds (the hereafter).

3. The third ingredient is to have faith and believe you are a child of this Creator Father. Having accepted this gift as sons and daughters, available to all, without condition, you are granted the right of eternal life if you so choose to take the grand adventure to become godlike and move ever inward, from life station to life station, learning, growing, and serving in the creation and becoming co-creators with God.

4. The fourth ingredient is to know where home is. Be confident and have the faith that all has been prepared for you — that your homecoming is anticipated and the way made clear for you to enter into your inheritance. Believe that when you breathe your last breath in this life, that your Indwelling Spirit (the keeper of your mind transcripts and experiences), and your Guardian Angel ( the keeper of your soul trust) will come together on the third day and awaken you in your new home on the mansion worlds — the training worlds of human ascension and progression.

These basic ingredients are needed to assure a smooth transition and a joyous reunion on the mansion worlds. Be therefore confident in your survival and enjoy your life on the worlds of time and space knowing this is only the beginning of an unending astonishing career of life and service in the creation.

Peace to you,
The Circle of Seven.

My Prayer Today is Simply, “Help me,” a Guest Post by Sharie at Sending Joy

Sharie from Sending Joy is the inspired author of many heartfelt posts; she helped me to heal my guilt–and others who’ve found themselves at her blog. This guest post sums up the essence of her messages for us.

Let’s take a quiet walk with God and allow our conversation to be a simple, ‘Help me.’

“Help me to see the world through Your eyes.”

“Help me to know the lesson here.”

“Help me to find peace in this.”

“Help me to see the miracles in all things.”

“Help me to recognize my Holiness.”

“Help me to see the Holiness in others.”

“Help me to see that all I search for is right inside of me.”

“Help me to see that all I fear is my own happiness.”

“Help me see that my lack of peace is my choice for war in some form.”

“Help me to not wage war with myself and others.”

“Help me to be grateful for everything, knowing every experience is here to help me in some way.”

“Help me to listen, hear and trust in You and Your Love and to see there really is nothing else.”

Each “help me” is a prayer to be used to serve you throughout your days. Then design your own “help me” prayers to fit your specific life’s needs and experiences. After each help me, don’t forget to take a quiet moment to walk with God and listen for His answer. And then say, “Thank you.”

Break the Chain of Self-Recrimination, A Guest Post from Lytske

Urantia, May 21, 2012
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson about Holding On”

Received by Lytske

The Beloved One: “Many mortals suffer in silence from low self-esteem. For others it is more in the open. It will be helpful for Me to shore you up, and assure you that these feelings will become redundant in the times to come. The Father in heaven has decreed that the times for renewal have begun, and this counts for everyone. No one is excluded from these times of self-correction. The Father prefers for you to live, rather than to just hold on. Our deceptively simple little lessons harbor many kernels of truth and guidance, which serve as ‘way-showers’ on the road to perfection, which is the purpose and goal of your existence. I desire that these lessons are to be published. These little gems can be read at random, being received one day at a time, to go forth to nourish and strengthen a day at a time.

“Such patterns of holding on, which are no longer useful to you, are best placed in the past, were they rightfully belong, so they don’t continue to poison your mind, encumber you and cramp your life-style. The zest for living is the most prized gift you can give yourself, and when you feel your spirits sagging, turn within to the Stillness and ask for My help. My help is freely available, but hardly anyone knows how to ask and take Me up on My offer. This needs to change, and is very easily done when you flex your faith and trust muscles. Yes, place your faith and trust in Me, so these muscles will grow stronger and will serve you well to overcome your mental handicaps, some of which were placed there from infancy on by your significant others, who were likewise laboring under the same mental handicaps.

“Please break this chain of self-abuse, and free yourselves from the limiting back-talk of your minds. It is no longer necessary to berate yourself. Everybody makes mistakes, but this is how humans learn. These mistakes shall serve you well as lessons by which to progress. Each day is another opportunity for start afresh. There really is no need to bring your old worn-out habits of thought into a fresh new present. Learn to live more consciously, so you can nip these unproductive thoughts about yourself or others in the bud. Please remember to hug yourself once a day and then know too, that I am embracing you, also. This is truly worthy of remembering, because you are all beloved children of the Most High God.

“Self-limiting thoughts are most unproductive and so are those old patterns you are hanging on to. Each day is to be enjoyed as the first day of a new beginning. The old has served to get you to where you are now. Don’t look back lest you fall into the pit of self-recrimination, for this habit is very destructive of your peace of mind – a boulder placed on the path to soul-growth. Let’s rejoice for this is the day the Lord has made with all its potentials and possibilities. Greet each day filled with the expectation that it is going to be a good one. Come to Me first in a mode of anticipation and allow Me to lift your spirits to were they belong, in the groove of an attitude of gratitude, which makes the whole day flow smoother. Try this and see how you like it when life flows smoother because you involve Me in it. Follow this train of thought and soon there will be a new habit in place, more helpful and hopeful to you as the old ‘holding on patterns’ of the past fade away.”

Divine Justice, a Guest Post Received by Lytske, 11:11 Progress Group

Urantia, May 4, 2012.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Divine Justice.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Be assured that I know how hesitant you are to even start typing, as this new subject frightens you somewhat. The reason for this is that you were raised in the belief of the wrath of God, and that God was a stern judge. These are puerile emotions which only humans indulge in. How wrong those teachings!

“Still it remains in those records of old. You recall how you had difficulty in believing all those legends you were spoon-fed. Remember how many stories in the bible made as little sense to you as to many others. Therefore, the time has come to shine a new light upon justice, specifically Divine Justice, so that honest and sincere souls may feel at ease about the ‘coming judgment’, rather than living in fear, and like the olden seer John the Baptist expressed it, ‘flee from the wrath to come’.

“Being well versed in the bible and now with the enlarged revelation of your text, the Urantia Book, it will become a lot easier for you to understand how Divine Justice operates, as all mortals are their own judge and jury, needing to forgive themselves and others, as God automatically forgives those who forgive all.

“Your studies will allow you to acquire a better understanding of how Divine Justice operates in the time-space creations. It is on all the peopled planets of space where such lessons are learned. Lessons create understanding and understanding leads to wisdom. Life is therefore precious and the lessons are chosen by the mortals themselves, whether they are conscious of their own choices or not. Irrespective, life is, it flows, and progresses, regardless of the choices you make.

“Sooner, more often later, the dawning comes that, yes, perhaps you could have made better choices, or behaved more appropriately, or not have acted impulsively, or said something thoughtlessly, which may have caused misery for self and or others, and such performance would hardly be seen as doing the will of God, but consider this…

“You will see now, dear one, how important that one prayer is: ‘Not my will be done but yours’. This is Divine Justice in its purest form. By doing His will, you will become more conscious of the fact that God does not judge at all, he only forgives. This is true justice, as everything is based on love. Even the universes with all the myriad planets are created from nothing but love.

“Such is the extent of Divine Justice that He allows each mortal to make up his or her own mind about how they will conduct themselves throughout their precious lives. Eventually they will see it God’s way and adhere to that one commandment to become perfect even as God is perfect. Such is the love of God that He patiently waits, allowing each child to return their love back to Him.

“The eternal truth remains that when you decide to do, and abide by, God’s will, which is the way with the most love in it, you will be in the flow of pure creation and be living by Divine Justice.”

Let’s Plug Into the Truth, a Guest Post from Sharie, Spirit Teacher

Flowing

By Sharie, Spirit Teacher
Sending Joy

“Today I will remember the power of my thoughts and choose Love.”

What stops peace is when we plug the flow of God’s Love with our muddy thoughts and judgments. It doesn’t mean that our peace no longer exists. It only means that we have plugged the flow of God’s loving energy with our fear. 

There was a time we knew all this. Long ago God first Created us as Spirit in His Likeness, before we re-created Him in ours.  And yet no matter how dense our misperceptions of ourselves and God, still He is as He always was—and, in God’s Eyes, so are We.

We can bring clarity and the pure stream of joy and understanding back into our conscious awareness by simply choosing Love instead of fear at all times. A Course In Miracles teaches that we are far too tolerant of our mind wanderings. We think our ego thoughts have the power and so we let them run rampant and cause us sadness, anxiety, sickness and insanity which translates into nature’s imbalance and the world’s suffering. We really don’t believe there is another way to live. And we certainly don’t have a clue as to how powerful our thoughts are. If God stood right in front of us and told us the truth, we wouldn’t believe Him. And yet this is exactly what He does as He speaks to the heart of each of us constantly answering our prayers for peace and happiness. These are the answers we ignore or refuse to hear because they aren’t coming in exactly the form that our ego’s expect and understand.

So let’s begin today to unplug from fear and plug into our truth and let our light shine and our peace and God’s abundant Love flow free.

Let’s surrender our preconceived ideas of what Happiness is and what Healing is.  Instead, let’s place all our trust in God.

And then let’s wait and see what happens.
