1. Awakening is not possible without duality, for the Self is ever perfect and therefore beyond the concept of awakening. It is the mind that awakens to its own true nature as pure awareness, and the awakening of the Self does not always happen in one whack. It is meant to be like that. There is a gradual merging of the ego-mind with the heart-mind or pure Self through the yoga of knowledge, and this expresses as the harmony of being. The mind has to slowly adjust to the atmosphere of the Self. ~ Mooj
2. Things Fall Apart: Sometimes life comes in waves and each wave is a purification, a dissolution of attachments. Old boundaries, old roles, old beliefs and values, old images of self are altered or erased, and a new territory is mapped. The things that used to be so important to us cease to be so important. Everything appears to be different now. But something is not different. Something deep inside of us remains the same. Indeed, it comes into sharp focus now. That is where we must go to re-center and find direction. That is where we find the foundation on which we can rebuild our lives. ~ Paul Ferrini
3. In any moment, in any circumstance, a miracle will occur when we align ourselves with truth.
There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not harder or bigger than another. We are children of God, and God works miracles naturally. Miracles are built into the fabric of the universe, and we are entitled to them because of who we are..
Remembering who we are, we needn’t struggle today about anything. We can release all cares, all burden and all questions to God. We needn’t constrict our energy, but only relax into His loving arms. From there, every circumstance in our lives will be miraculously lifted to divine right order.
The more burdens we carry, the more temptation we experience to tighten, to worry, to control, to constrict. Yet today we can remember to do the opposite. We can remember that miracles will occur in whatever situations we release to God. Today let’s release them all. Amen ~ Marianne Williamson
4. People don’t realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind.
