Byron Katie on “After Life:

The woman interviewing me today asked if I believed in an afterlife. I said yes, completely, and no, completely. The afterlife is now, and everyone talks about believing in now until they see it as just another concept that isn’t true and eventually they begin to see that actually now is the afterlife that they always wondered about. She asked me why I believed in the afterlife and what is the afterlife, and it never ceases to amaze me that the obvious is not understood. Why do I believe in the afterlife? This moment is after the past and that makes this moment the only afterlife possible to “not” believe in, because that now is gone, and so is this one. Poof! Live, a slight of mind, until it’s not.
The afterlife is what happened after I brushed my teeth this morning.
This moment ends my whole life. Finally I am living in the afterlife.
You, as you believe you to be, have never been born, you are a mere ghost of your own imagination.
What to see and experience the after world? This is it! It happens in the afterlife. It’s happening now, it happens each moment. I call it heaven! Are you there yet?

see with your heart

Recent world events have greatly disturbed many.

There is an old expression, “adding fuel to the fire”. Rather than re-acting with negative comments, hate speech or taking sides around these heart-breaking events, let’s all join forces to do a meditation for world alignment It will take 15 minutes of your time, visualizing the countries in conflict and shine light, pure love and compassion down on them. Imagine a resolution as countries resolve their issues and begin to mend the fractures.

Let’s join friends in South Africa who sent this out to the global network inviting us to join them on Sunday 24th (their time 8 pm) for 15 mins.

Here in California, we are 9 hours behind. Please circulate and make this a word wide event. Calculate the time in your neck of the woods.

As Wayne Dyer said “One individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of pure love and reverence for all of life will counterbalance the negativity of many individuals who calibrate at a lower weakening level”.

The power of collective consciousness is awesome. Let’s all make a difference.

“To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.” ~ Pablo Neruda

There is no them. It’s just me, right? Yes and no. They are the rest of my mind. But how to heal their minds? The only way I know is via the healing of my mind. Mine becomes the healed mind in the barrel that heals the rest. Minds are joined – there is only the one mind. Ah yes, back to me again. I am that one mind. There is no them. ~ Thanks Benny….

DAMN IT!!! I wish there was someone to BLAME… LOL

To feel the love of people who we love is a fire that feeds our life. Pablo Neruda

The Love Seeker: The love seeker and the love giver live in different worlds. The love seeker doesn’t know how to love. She is so concerned with how much she is getting, she doesn’t realize she isn’t giving love at all. Forever counting and measuring, she goes into her head and closes down her heart. Yet until she offers love, she will be miserable. Until she gives without expectation of return, the love that comes back to her will never seem to be enough. ~  Paul Ferrini

do you love me

I call it the ‘grievance grind’ – it is when you get really pissed off and you mentally rehearse your justification for the grievance. You carefully choose every word to vengefully inflict guilt and pain on another, and you run it over and over again in your mind – the grievance grind. This is madness. You are hurting yourself – drinking poison hoping that someone else will die. For your own sake, try to get in touch with a little willingness to let it go. Pray for help. ~ Thanks Benny

Thought for Today on LISTEN & TRUST 8.1.14 August 1, 2014

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 3:06 pm

Listen and Trust: Let your Source be in charge. By Dr. Wayne Dyer 

If we’re honest with ourselves, every one of us can agree that we’re acquainted with the ego part that controls and manages our lives and eagerly attempts to do the same for others. Be they family, friends, co-workers, or even strangers, ego routinely accepts the job of edging God out and taking on the role of being the master manipulator. As we move in a different direction, we realize the pointlessness of attempting to control any individual or any situation. We recognize this need to practice interference as the power trip of our false self.

There was a time in my life, for instance, when I needed to be in charge of most social conversations. Having made the shift from control to trust means that I now flow with the conversational direction and opinions that are expressed. I’m content to sit back and observe, even as others take on the false-self role, as I view it. I can smile inwardly at some of my children’s choices in life even when I disagree. The shift from control to trust has increased my noninterference.

Beyond my personal interactions with friends and family, in a much larger sense I trust more and control less. In my heart I know that God writes the books, delivers the speeches, and builds the bridges. When trust replaces control, edging God out isn’t appealing. “All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen” may have been Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words, but I agree so completely that they could be my own. I absolutely trust the wisdom of the universe and its creative Source.

With trust, we acknowledge our own wisdom. We remember that we came from the same Source and, therefore, must be like what we came from. We can trust Source to guide us, rather than screw things up with ego’s demands for self-recognition and belief in our superiority. Trust lets us listen rather than take over. Listening allows us to comfortably sit back, knowing that the creative Source of everything is in charge instead of our puny little ego. Shifting from control to trust is so important for our life work.

In The Shift movie, I relate how I found the road that resonated with the calling of my soul. I did so by listening to what I was feeling deep within me, rather than what my ego was saying to me about how to capitalize on my fame by writing books to make more money. By trusting my inner excitement, I was able to make a big shift in my life, away from writing about psychology to writing about living life from a spiritual orientation. That shift away from the Ambition of ego, which tried to control my writing and speaking career, put me on the path of Meaning.

When you disengage from ego control, what is it that you trust? There are three markers to look for on this road. They are: trust in yourself, trust in others, and trust in the Source of being. Here’s a brief explanation of each of them:

Trust in yourself. This means hearing your soul speak in whatever way it does. Intuition is generally a reliable voice, in whatever form it expresses itself individually. Mahatma Gandhi explained his sense of it: “What is Truth? A difficult question; but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what the ‘voice within’ tells you.”

Trust in others. This means noninterference as much as possible. Everyone has the universe located in him or her; trusting others frees you from feeling obligated to interfere. In the words of Lao-tzu in the Tao Te Ching: “Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it? I do not believe it can be done.”

Trust in the Source of being. This means trusting the mystery of creation. The universal Source of all creation, invisible though it may be, guides you just as it guided your development in the womb. When you trust in Divine intelligence, you cooperate and invite the shift to Meaning.
