One of the greatest gifts God can bestow upon us is the gift of being able to exercise non-reaction. This is one of the most challenging gifts to master. To be able to see something you dislike and not react. To be able to hear something you dislike and not react. To be able to read something you dislike and not react. To be able to not react when someone does something you do not like. I consider all of the above tests given to me to overcome my lower self. The part of me that is less than the God within me; the Spirit that I AM. In these times, I stop and breath deeply so as to invite the Holy Spirit into my being to cleanse the negativity that tries to take hold of and disturb my core. I call out Jesus’ name and invite him into my being to wash me clean. I call upon Mother Mary to flood me with her Unconditional Love. And then I relax and realize that I AM More than the emotion of negativity. I AM Pure Love and love is what I choose to emanate.
The majority of God's people have been so caught up in complaining, and arguing their point of view that they have been cleverly distracted from God's work. There is less light being poured into this world when we are pulled into chaos. Deliberate? We must get back on track swiftly.
Prayers are beams of light that flood forth into the heart of our Creator. The stronger the will of the prayerful the more powerful the beam of light, thus the more effective the answer. When many pray in unison the beam of light is magnified; the results are bountiful. Many have prayed for the salvation of our brothers and sisters, our world and ourselves. Our Creator has heard our cries. Our Creator is answering as we live and breathe. Be aware of the shift that is taking place before your eyes. We are rising upward into the Light of God. Are you ready?
The greatest gift one could ever receive is the gift of Oneness with God. To be one with God is to be whole. To be one with God is to attain divine power, divine wisdom, divine love, divine purity, divine truth and vision, divine peace and divine freedom. Your divinity awaits you.
God calls out to us in pure love and light and tells us, "I am the light that lights your path on this earth. Always and in every moment of your waking life here on this planet look to me for your answers, for the answers I give you are permanent and follow my laws, whereas, the laws of this planet, that you have made up to satisfy a false god, are untrue, unreal and fleeting."
There is no other than Love. Love is all there is. Love is God. Love is you and all of your brothers and sisters and each should be seen in love by you, for if you are not able, or willing, to see love in all than you will forever live in a lower sense of self which does not know true love nor wants to accept love from God. God is all there is and you are all there is for you are one with God and all of life. Express that love in any way you choose to, this is your right and your free will. It does not matter the form it takes. All that matters is that you express it that God might give you more to express and give you the abundant life that you so desire. Make it a habit to express love to all that you encounter throughout the day and when something comes up that disturbs you do not react but, instead, give it your love and walk away if you must in order to stop yourself from falling prey to the lesser part of yourself.
As you go about your day remember, "As I walk in this world the Light of God emanates from me purifying all that I pass, healing all that I pass, loving all that I pass, harmonizing all that I pass. All that I pass, whether people, animals, plants, places or the elementals, the Light of God that shines through me affects all, therefore, my mind is pure and my heart is pure, for as I think, feel and do, I qualify God's Light. And as pure as my heart and mind are that is how pure God's Light will be and how effective it will be as I walk."
When you find yourself seeking the approval of others, whether it be the approval, or recognition, of a parent, a spouse, a friend, an employer, a coworker etc., realize that it is a false desire. The true desire that is hidden beneath this false desire of approval is the true desire to be one with God. It is God's love we ultimately all seek on a deeper level of our being. We, as humans, have perverted this true desire into seeking recognition and approval in this world. So, when you catch yourself doing, saying, thinking or being something that is in line with seeking approval from that which is outside of God remind yourself that it is untrue, remind yourself that it is God you seek, and then realize that you do not need to do anything in order to receive God's unconditional love. He adores you, for he sees you as you truly are.
Happy Martin Luther King Day to you and your loved ones. Martin Luther King is a symbol of equal rights, of freedom, not just for blacks but for all people of this world - no matter the color of their skin. He preached equal rights for the blacks but on a deeper level he preached freedom of the mind. Freedom to think the thoughts of the part of ourselves that is of God. Thinking from the point of view of God is where true freedom lies. When we freely think from God and get rid of the beam in our own eyes then we can truly see each other as children of God and not what we are on the outside, which has no baring on our true identity. Martin Luther King saw this and he knew this on every level of his being. He was the Light of God as we ALL are. Freedom to think will truly set us free, will truly strip us of all thoughts of inequality. No one can set us free but ourselves. No one can make us feel equal but ourselves. We must not rely on others to free us of our imagined problems or we will bind ourselves to them. We were all born free and equal, and we are all free and equal now. God offers us freedom. It is our choice to accept it. Together, let's set ourselves free from all of our problems, all of our hate, anger, jealousy, envy, pride and all negative emotions towards ourselves and each other. When we do this we will understand what true equality is from the point of view of God.
If we can think and talk constantly about politics, the latest news, celebrities, food, music, movies, the most popular shows and all the other things of this world then we should also, and more importantly, be thinking and talking constantly about God. Praying without ceasing is just that. And why is it more beneficial to think and talk constantly about God then about the madness in this world? Well, because when we pray without ceasing God works, God answers, God manifests, God rejoices, God fulfills desires, God loves, God lives, God has an outlet to bring the Kingdom of Heaven down to earth. Pray without ceasing.
When in doubt of what to think about or if you're just idling and waiting for something to happen think about God. Actually, God is the only subject worth thinking about. Everything else pales in comparison, for what else can you think about that will strengthen you at the very core of your being?
There are no random acts. God, the Universe, is organized. Things happen for a reason, therefore, if we desire to know the truth behind any given situation we must look for the cause and not at the effect. There are no secrets with God. All that you desire to know is readily available to you and must be revealed when asked. The key is to go within, ask, and then patiently wait for an answer. Do not ask your question in judgement of anyone or anything. The question must be asked from the heart and with love and understanding and must not be asked for the purpose of condemnation. God does not condemn nor judge and thus if we are to be like God, and shine our light, then we must not condemn nor judge. You will receive your answer and you will know that the answer you receive is the truth by the way it makes you feel, for when you are in the state of consciousness that Jesus attained then you have the clear understanding of how and why things happen and thus your heart will be set at ease.
If you are out of work, whether unemployed at the moment or retired, God would love for you to volunteer. Why? Because when you are active in the world you allow God to work through you more effectively. When you work with individuals, whether children, homeless, disabled, and/or animals, you become the light of the world for God. Through you, God uplifts others to greatness, thereby lifting you up as well. You are needed in this world. Have fun!
Everyone wants love and if we can be that love in the world then let's be it. Choose love.
Many ask, "How can I love those who do "wrong," those who hurt me and others, those who deliberately do harm etc.?" The answer is to love God first and foremost. When you love God you love yourself when you love yourself you are able to love others. God loves all equally no matter what they have done that we deem as wrong. When we learn to love God and ourselves and allow God to love us then we will understand fully how God loves all equally. It is only when we can say, as Jesus said, "I and my Father are One," that we can truly understand how and why God loves all without judgement. When we are able to say Jesus' words then all will be revealed to us.
When in need and feeling as if you have no one to turn to that can truly understand you, say, "Show me the way home to you, O Lord." Allow God to enter your heart fully and lead you to him. Let go and let God.
You are loved beyond belief and beyond what you can ever imagine. Know this truth as you go about your day and feel it within every cell of your mind and body. You are loved.
If ever you, or someone you know, feel it necessary to end your life because things are not going well and there seems to be no way out, I am here to tell you, Do Not Do It. Why? Because you are the Light Of God. You are the Light sent into this world to bring the Kingdom of Heaven down to Earth. You are an integral part of God's Divine Plan and to all of life itself. Ending life, whether it be your own or that of another, is a devastating loss to God and all of our brothers and sisters. God, and all of us, need you. Do your best to think on God and nothing else. Turn away from all that depresses you no matter what form it takes. Know that the way you are feeling is temporary and will gradually fade away as you turn towards, and seek out, the God within. The world can be a depressing place but know that it does not have to be that way. As we all begin to realize who we truly are, we can begin to take back this world and give it over to God. You are a part of this realization, you are important and you are loved.
We live in a beautiful world. Let's unmask more of that beauty by being the Light of God on earth.
No matter how out of control you may feel trust that you are always in control. The only reason you feel out of control is because you have given your power to someone or something else. You have blamed someone or something else for the situation you are in. The only way to regain control of any situation is to take back your power by taking the blame, by taking responsibility for your life. Once you say, "It's his/her fault. It's their fault," you have lost your power because now you are in a position where in order for you to be in control, or feel relieved or happy "she/he" and "they" must give that to you. You must wait for them to say, "I'm sorry," or "It's my fault." How many people want to take blame or responsibility? Very, very few. When you take responsibility you are now in a position to forgive, give up and let go of the issue or situation that has been haunting you, that has made you feel out of control. This is true freedom, for now you count on no one or no place for your happiness. You now count on yourself.
