How wonderful to experience the mind of Oneness, however brief or temporary it seems in this world of time and distance apart. The One true mind has all true thought already accomplished, and for all. I need not effort to think if I open to oneness. I need not fear time, or the seeming lack of it, when I accept eternal now. The truth in all Love is the truth in me, now. This is always true, but for my awareness of It, may seem to lack. This Love. This Oneness. This attraction of like to like, Love to Itself, perhaps even from cell to cell and on through time, to our awareness of self, selves. Thinking we are bodies, then knowing our truth in Spirit.
I am present to my
process of purification.
I allow a shift in perception
when I ask for peace and
pardon the past to free my Self.
It has been my pleasure to have a relationship with Holy Spirit, especially during the past two years. On the 25th of June I will celebrate two years of unemployment. Me and millions of other people. A tragedy.
I have moments when I am down. But not many, for you see I have a partner who is closer to me than my skin; Who wraps me in so much love that the neighbor who was faced with cancer found comfort in our presence. We drove her to and sat through doctor appointments. We held her hand following the colonoscopy which brought grim news. We celebrated with her when the surgeon announced the cancer was completely removed in the surgery. She has a partner, too!
There is much talk right now about disasters and other scary stuff. It can be easy to get pulled into this, especially since there seems to be so much evidence to prove that life is scary. If you live on this planet you have seen pictures of the gulf oil spill. Living near the gulf, I am bombarded with information about it. Much of this information invites me to join in grievances against the oil companies, the governor, the president or just about anyone who is available to be a target for the fear so many are experiencing right now. The human experience is about projection, and the bigger the fear the more quickly we project.
When you are full of gratitude, you are appreciative, open and give your full attention to what you are grateful for. Your system of values gives it great importance in your mind.
The dictionary defines gratitude as an appreciative awareness and thankfulness. Gratitude encompasses acceptance, appreciation and love. What you value highly is agreeable and satisfying to you.
The opposite of gratitude is rejection… not valuing… a turning away from… excluding… not accepting or opposing. What we don’t value, appreciate and accept, we turn away from… We avoid it and take our attention away from it. We reject it from our awareness.
I was in the midst of taking the Pathways of Light Relationship Enhancement Counseling Training when I realized that I had not been truly listening to others. For me, this course turned out to be much more than it appeared. Maybe I was ready to receive what this course had to give.
What else is there, but to listen? To listen to the word of God, Who is my very Self and to listen to God’s word in another. Dare I speak to a brother without having heard from him first? What shall I say if I have not first heard? And what is it that I am to hear? Why it is the Voice for God speaking through my brother.
“What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple appeared from nowhere — and then told you they were ‘ascended masters’ who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of advanced forgiveness?” (From ‘The Disappearance of the Universe’)
It’s 3:25 am. This is the first night that I didn’t take a Zanax since my 27 year old son, Kevin, died ten days ago. I never took Zanax before he died. They’re unbelievable, these little pills. I slept 8 straight hours each night without waking or even remembering any dreams the next morning. I didn’t take one tonight. I’ve got one on my dresser right now but I’ve decided to stay up. Kevin is talking to me.
In the world of form, I am a general contractor. These past few years, business has been very good. In fact, until this fall I can’t remember a single day when I didn’t have work for my company. I had plenty of money and was able to spend it without concern for the future. A couple of months ago business seemed to have just dried up and my efforts to secure new projects were failing.
I was recently sitting in a bus heading downtown. Part of the route was alongside a large park just outside of the city. I always make sure I sit on the side of the bus that looks onto the park, so I can enjoy looking at the trees. On this day, the weather was cold and dreary, but the sky was clear. I had spent some time that morning studying and reflecting on material from Joel Wright’s new book, The Mirror On Still Water, as I had been for several days.
Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ — This means all who are reading this, even those who aren’t (as funny as that sounds) because we are all equal members of the One Family of God! I know that my purpose in this “dream world of illusions” is to remember in each and every moment Who my Heavenly Father/Mother really Is on earth as in Heaven — God the Father; God the Mother; God of all Creation; God of Love, Gentleness, Mercy, Joy, Peace, Innocence, God of all that is Eternal!
I have built walls of
limitations for myself.
I have done such a good job,
that I see myself sitting
in quite a solid tower.
I’ve been dallying in new areas of opportunity in this heartfelt desire to be of service. After ordination I was looking forward to helping others in need of listening, compassion, and help in making them aware of the small, still voice of Wisdom that is within. To date, I haven’t really had much of a calling from others to do that and I couldn’t figure out why! “Holy Spirit, what’s the deal? You know how much I want to do this work, so what’s the hang-up?”
Italians have an inexhaustible ability to forgive and let it go. If you do it right, it’s blessed and godly. If you do it wrong, it’s just for lack of applying yourself and you let it slide.
The operation to remove the tumor did not go well. The pleasantly plump anesthesiologist with an equally pleasant voice asked me to think of something nice before I went under. That of course made me think of the boys and I awoke from the anesthesia coughing and vomiting on my need to hold my children in my arms again. Plus, they found more cancer. My sentinel gland was completely saturated with cancer as was the capillary leading from the tumor to my lymph node area along the top half of my right breast. It wasn’t clear how much the cancer had spread. I stayed in the hospital for an additional four days for further observation, and before I went home, I was told I would have to come back for a second operation in two weeks. The possibility of a single or double mastectomy was on the horizon if they couldn’t cut out all the cancer during the second operation. My sons were 5 and 6 ½. I was beyond shock. There was no propensity for breast cancer in my family. I finished breast feeding not even 4 years ago; I was healthy; I felt absolutely fine; this couldn’t be.
