MAKING DECISIONS

Having to make decisions can be awful.  We go round and round in our minds, not quite knowing which set of factors should he given greater weight.  Sometimes reason competes with gut instinct, which only seems to make matters worse. But what if we could place all our…

YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS

You have a choice.  Someone can surround you with sand.  Someone can even throw sand in your face.  But no one can make you build your house on sand unless you choose to.  You can always build your house on rock.  You are at cause where…

Marianne Williamson on MYSTICAL POWER

Mystical power neither originates from nor acts upon the material realm.  It is the sustaining energy of the world beyond – beyond body, argument, reasons or personality.  Mystical power in relationships comes not from improving our “people skills” but from developing our “soul skills.”  In order…

POWER OF OUR MIND

We’d like to be risen in consciousness, but we’re down here in the thought forms that dominate this planet, and we say, “When these conditions change, then I’ll believe it and I’ll rise up.”  But our job is to use the power of our mind. A Course in Miracles…

LIFE IS GOOD

The universe is sending you the right everything.  You won’t realize this until you fully show up in the situation the way it is.  In other words, whatever the circumstance, if you assume that the circumstance is perfect, then you live fully within that circumstance.  How can I be…

A MIRACLE WORKER

A miracle worker is an artist of the soul.  There’s no higher art than living a good life.  An artist informs the world of what’s available behind the masks we all wear.  That’s what we’re all here to do.  The reason so many of us are…

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…

We are Unique

WE ARE UNIQUE

The Holy Spirit accepts people unconditionally.  To the ego, this is an outrageous thought, because unconditional love is the death of the ego.  How will people grow if we all go around just accepting each other as we are all the time?  Accepting people as they are has the…

Angels

MARIANNE WILLIAMSON ON ANGELS

Angels are the thoughts of God.  They are the bearers of breakthrough, the mystical helmet.  They deliver the mind to profound understanding.    ~ Marianne Williamson (Illuminata)   Angels are very active in the Bible and are used by God as messengers, warriors, and servants. The word “angel”…

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL

There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children.   ~ Marianne Williamson ~ Raising children is not easy, if you’re doing a good job. They need limits. They have no choice…

CONSEQUENCES

It’s not just that God said we should love one another.  He also created the universe in such a way that, in time, we are sure to learn to do just that.  If everything we do has a consequence, if everything we do comes back to…

ARE YOU ACHIEVING SUCCESS?

Success means we go to sleep at night knowing that our talents and abilities were used in a way that served others. ~ Marianne Williamson  ~ “We’re all programmed to have the ability to be empathetic,” says Dr. Barry Wiser, a clinical psychologist practicing in southwestern…

A MIRACLE

The ego would have us born with great potential, and die with great potential.  In between, there is ever-increasing suffering.  A miracle frees us to live fully in the present, to release our power and to claim our glory.  The Son of God is risen to…

A FORCE OF NATURE

It doesn’t matter what religion we are. It doesn’t matter what doctrine we ascribe to. It doesn’t matter what people say. What matters is that we open our inner eyes and see the beauty of the risen One in every heart and every leaf. The Christ…

Helping

SERVING THE WORLD

The more we allow our internal world to be illumined, the more our external world will take on meaning.  Through meditation and prayer, our nervous systems become prepared for the task of a more powerful external existence. People who love will usher in the new, illumined…

DO WHAT YOU LOVE

Do what you love.  Do what makes your heart sing.  And never do it for the money.  Don’t go to work to make money.  Go to work to spread joy.  Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven, and the Maserati will get here when it’s supposed…

Spirituality

BECOMING MORE SPIRITUAL

We receive principle in different ways at different ages.  We receive principle in different ways given our experiences.   But principle itself is really very simple.  And so we we’re talking about these basics and I am reminded once again that all spiritual teaching is basics.  As I’ve said…

THE PERFECT YOU

When Michelangelo was asked how he created a piece of sculpture, he answered that the statue already existed within the marble.  God Himself had created the Pieta, David, Moses.  Michelangelo’s job, as he saw it, was to get rid of the excess marble that surrounded God’s creation.  So it is with…

Universe

LUMINOSITY

The universe works with a more varied palette than do the venues of power and influence acknowledged by the world.  The universe is like an infinitely powerful computer, registering a spark of willingness on anyone’s part to receive the light and then impart it to others.  As we pray and…

GOD’S WILL IS OUR HAPPINESS

God’s will is that we be happy now.  In asking that God’s will be done, we are instructing our minds to focus on the beauty in life, to see all the reasons to celebrate instead of mourn.  Usually we figure out what we think would make…

OUR ILLUSIONS

Dropping our illusions is a healing in itself.  Within each of us there is a core – our essence, our true being.  That is the place of God who is within us.  Finding that essence is our return to God.  It is the purpose of our…

Growth

GROWTH – MARIANNE WILLIAMSON

Sometimes people think that calling on God means inviting a force into our lives that will make everything rosy.  The truth is, it means inviting everything into our lives that will force us to grow – and growth can be messy.  The purpose of life is…

Pretty girl

Marianne Williamson on OUR LIGHT TO SHINE

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”  Actually, who are you…

OUR CAPACITY TO LOVE

“Do not look to the god of sickness for healing but only to the God of love,” says the Course, “for healing is the acknowledgement of Him.”  In the traditional Western medical model, a healer’s job is to attack disease.  But if the consciousness of attack…
