UNDERSTANDING THE EGO

The Ego, however, is not who you really are.  The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing.  Your social mask thrives on approval.  It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.   …

Holy Spirit

THIRD EYE

Love isn’t seen with the physical eyes or heard with physical ears.  The physical senses can’t perceive it; it’s perceived through another kind of vision.  Metaphysicians call it the Third Eye, esoteric Christians call it the vision of the Holy Spirit, and others call it the…

Divine Mind

DIVINE MIND

Just like a sunbeam can’t separate itself from the sun, and a wave can’t separate itself from the ocean, we can’t separate ourselves from one another. We are all part of a vast sea of love, one indivisible divine mind. ~ Marianne Williamson ~ My mind…

SEE ONESELF CLEARLY

“In asking for miracles, we are seeking a practical goal: a return to inner peace. We’re not asking for something outside us to change, but for something inside us to change. We’re looking for a softer orientation to life.” The only thing missing in any situation…

Power

AUTHENTIC AND POWERFUL

We are looking not so much for more ground to conquer, but for a truer ground of being on which to stand inside ourselves.  The most positive breakthroughs of our times are internal.  The drama of personal actualization is rarely reported in the mainstream press, except…

Inner voice

INNER VOICE

We do well to listen to this Inner Voice, for it tells us of a life wonderful in its scope; of a love beyond our fondest dreams.   ~The Science of Mind “Never focus your attention on what the world has to say about you. Rather turn…

Love everyone

LOVE EVERYONE

Ultimately, the choice to love each other is the only choice for a survivable future.  The meek shall inherit the earth because everyone else will have died on their swords.  Every time we open our hearts, we create the space for a global alternative.      ~ Marianne Williamson…

Worried Girl

WHY DO WE WORRY SO MUCH?

When most people worry, they feel less anxious. Running over the problem in your head distracts you from your emotions and makes you feel like you’re getting something accomplished. Focusing on worst case scenarios won’t keep bad things from happening. It will only keep you from…

Be Your Best

You, yourself, are the arbiter of your own destiny.   ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins Lewis Carroll said: If you don’t know where you are going, then any road will get you there.   It is important to take time to examine and discuss the details of every aspect…

Beauty

TRUE BEAUTY

It’s not the face, but the expressions on it.  It’s not the voice, but what you say.  It’s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it.  You are beautiful.”  ~ Stephanie Meyer (The Host)  ~ True beauty shines through. It…

Decisions

CHOICES IN LIFE

Spiritualism

ILLUMINED MIND

Spiritual practice heals us, bringing down light to the regions of our darkness.  We need more than brilliant analysis; we need a miracle.  The human mind can’t give us that, but the human mind isn’t all we’ve got.  The human mind contains a spark of divinity,…

EVERYTHING IS NEW AGAIN

It is hard to let old beliefs go.  They are familiar.  We are comfortable with them and have spent years building systems and developing habits that depend on them.  Like a man who has worn eyeglasses so long that he forgets he has them on, we…

SOUL JOURNEY

The way of peace is a soul journey.  If you can live from the level of your soul, you are doing something very special.  The important thing is how much consciousness you add to the whole of human existence, for that is how eternity expresses itself,…

Liberty and Freedom

LIBERTY AND FREEDOM

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you…

Integrity

FLY ABOVE IT

Always seek less turbulent skies. Hurt.  Fly above it. Betrayal.  Fly above it. Anger.  Fly above it. You are the one who is flying the plane. ~ Marianne Williamson ~ We all create our own energy. Our future can be what we think it will be,…

Bo Lozoff on Change

ECKHART TOLLE on CREATING SPACE

When you are full of problems, there is no room for anything new to enter, no room for a solution.  So whenever you can, make some room, create some space, so that you find the life underneath your life situation.      ~ Eckhart Tolle (The Power of…

LIVE IN THE PRESENT

Always say “Yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to something that already is? What could be more insane that to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? ~Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now:…
