What is the Thing Itself?

March 28, 2016

Hi Everybody,

What is this Thing we call God?

I’m giving a talk about The Thing Itself next Sunday, April 2, 2016 at the Center for Spiritual Living West Georgia. If you’re in the area, please come.

No one really knows, but, from observation and experience, we can say:

  • The Thing Itself is the Intelligence that created and organized all there was, is and will be.
  • It is the Energy that life is.
  • It is the Spiritual substance that flows in us, as us and around us that makes us the unique and perfect beings that we are.

It is the Thing that spread Itself over every inch of the universe and the multiverses so that every place, thing and person is connected to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It does not abandon, forsake, or reject any of its creation including us; therefore, it is impossible for us to walk away from It.

Why would we want to? It is the Thing that appreciates and values us; that cherishes and honors us; that protects and nurtures us.

It is the Thing that gives us the freedom to decide how this particular life experience shall be: one of harmony, abundance and growth, or a different kind of experience.

Let us accept that what the Angels of All of Us have been telling us: this is a world of harmony, abundance and freedom; all we have to do is let this be so.

In the spirit of the Christmas Challenge: You are perfect just as you are, and I love you.

And so it is.

Open Doors

March 14, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Did you know that sometimes when you go through an open door, that it closes and won’t let you back in?

Wow! I didn’t know until recently that this is so most of the time.

It’s why that saying “Be careful what you wish for because you will get it and maybe, just maybe, it won’t be what you really wanted” came about.

As many of you know, several weeks ago, a door that I’d been seeking appeared, and I went through it.

That act has brought forth many challenges and lots of change. Feeling overwhelmed, and a feeling I can’t name because I don’t know its name, I thought about quitting and returning to how things used to be.

I know. At this point, many of you are hurting from laughing so much and so hard.  You find it hilarious that someone didn’t know that there’s no going back; there’s only going forward to the next door.

It isn’t that going through this door wasn’t the perfect choice for me; it was. I’ve grown a lot from making this choice.

It’s that when I look into a future that includes all these changes and more, I get scared. It’s going from certainty to uncertainty; and, like most of us, I hate being unsure.

So. It’s time to go to the angels.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

Wow! Are we ever so grateful that in times of uncertainty you are with us.

Man, what a relief to know that we are not alone and don’t have to figure everything out by ourselves.

We give thanks that we can depend on you to supply us with ideas, knowledge, energy, support, protection and nurturance.

Therefore, we can let go of the old and welcome the new.

We know you are for us and will accompany us as we investigate and explore the new.

There is a Power for Good in the Universe and all of us can use it for the good. We can use this good to bring forth the new.

And, you angels help us to use this Power.

Wow! Isn’t it great that this Power is available to all of us and all of us have angels to help us use it?

Simply realizing this gives me the courage to go on, to continue walking this new path.

Thank you for guiding me to know that all is well and will continue to be so.

And so it is.

Judgment the cause?

March 8, 2016

Hi Everyone,

How’s the Christmas Challenge coming? Anything fabulous showing up because you’re now in the habit of silently saying to everyone you meet: “You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.”?

I’ve noticed two things:

  • Life seems to flow with less struggle
  • And, I’ve become very aware of all my judgmental thinking.

The judgmental thinking has been a big “Wow”.

I stand in total amazement of the mental chatter that constantly goes through my mind that hasn’t a thing to do with acceptance or compassion.

People Feel
The thing is that even if you don’t voice those judgments, people feel them.

We actually feel now others really think about us; they don’t have to say a word.

People feel it when you are criticizing or failing to understand their view of a situation.

People consult with me when their life is in turmoil.  When we meet via telephone for a session with me, you and the angels, we ask to be taken to the source of the difficulty, and we are.

However, as I have dealt with my judgments and criticalness, a new cause or source has appeared.

New Cause
So, could your judgments of others be the reason your business isn’t getting off the ground, or you’re having career/employment problems, or you’re lonely?

To find out, I’m issuing a new challenge:

For the rest of this year, I offer only acceptance and compassion to all I meet. I immediately send my judgments, my criticisms, my doubts back to the nothingness from whence they came. I stand guard on my tongue, my thoughts and my feelings.

And, of course, there is no way I could even begin to do this without help from the angels.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

Thank you for causing us to see a possible cause of our suffering. Wow! What a revelation!

The cause is us.

So, as of right here and right now, we pledge to offer only acceptance and compassion to all we meet. We know that you stand with us and will guide us as we learn how to do this.

And, we know that you will first teach us to accept ourselves and to give ourselves compassion.

We are open to doing this. We are open to being an accepting, welcoming, compassionate people.

Wow!

Thank you for reminding us that there is a Power for Good in the Universe and all of us can use it to bring good into our own life.

Being accepting and compassionate brings good. It is a use of this Power for Good.

We give thanks that we know this and that you stand with us.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas Challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Lack is the Cause?

March 2, 2016
Hi Everyone,

What if “love of money” isn’t the cause? What if “lack of money” is the cause?

I was taught that love of money is the root of all evil. Yes, I know this is a misquote, but, it is the message most of us were taught.

Consider
Take a look at the problems in your life, in your family, in your community. How many of them would be solved if there were certain amounts of money at hand that one could freely use?

As you consider this possibility, sit with what you see, feel and are thinking for a moment or two.

How would things be if the money was at hand, right here and now, to freely use to ease situations and circumstances?

Take a moment or two to consider how things might change. Recognize the feelings and thoughts that come with this possibility. Which of these is habitual, what you think and feel automatically when you consider money as a problem solver?

Toxic money
I keep saying “freely use” because money that comes with:

  • Struggle
  • or charges like interest
  • or conditions like rules as to how and when it is to be used

creates a toxic situation or worsens an already toxic situation. Money that comes with the above conditions is called toxic money.

Assignment
Before we go to the angels and Mother/Father God about money, let us get clear about our willingness to admit that love of money—living in the overflow of all the good that comes come the Source (Mother/Father God)—might be exactly what is needed in our world at the moment.

For this next week, every time lack of money shows up in your life as a habitual thought or action, or as something you automatically think and feel, or as the only choice at the moment, immediately switch to thinking:

  • “I live in the overflow of all good. Lack, I don’t know how you got into my world, but you’re aren’t welcome here. Leave.”
  • “I love money. The more I receive, the more I can give. Yeah! Yeah! Fabulous!”
  • Allow yourself to feel joy, peace and ease.
  • And, allow yourself to recognize your hesitation and your negativity about doing this.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.
