What’s wrong with being a people pleaser? I love treating others as I would like to be treated. But if people pleasing is motivated by fear and/or a need for others to like and validate me, then I am coming from the wrong place. There is nothing wrong with being a people pleaser, but it should be about the joy of giving, not a sacrifice that is motivated by the need to get.

Choose Peace

“Teaching is done in many ways, above all by example. Teaching should be healing, because it is the sharing of ideas and the recognition that to share ideas is to strengthen them. I cannot forget my need to teach what I have learned, which arose in me because I learned it. I call upon you to teach what you have learned, because by so doing you can depend on it.” ~ ACIM (5-IV-5)

Have what I need...

Separation or Joining: Each moment offers us a choice of whether to separate or join. That is the only choice we have faced before and the only choice we will ever face. Unfortunately, we do not remember the pain of separation or the bliss of joining. That is why we have come to this place together, to help each other remember. ~ Paul Ferrini

Our 30 Day Commitment to Peace Starts Today October 1, 2014 October 1, 2014

I have started a FaceBook Page for A 30 Day Commitment to Peace, IF it feels right for you, please ask to JOIN and I will add you, it is invitation only, we are committing to reading the following and many other things to Shift our thinking. We will be creating our own Commitment to Peace statements as well for next week, more information about this is at the bottom of this writing.

Our Readings and Statements for Our 30 day Commitment to Peace

The following is Our Truth Statement for the next 30 days please read daily, at least once in the morning and once in the evening and as many times as needed during the day:

I am the dreamer of this dream and the world that I see is a manifestation of my thoughts and feelings.

This world has no other cause, and I have had enough of pain, suffering and death.

I will choose Love instead of fear – Peace instead of conflict.

I will no longer look on disaster and catastrophe.

I will no longer look on myself and others as if we were bodies.

I will look on myself and others as if we were immortal beings of Light eternally joined in a world of light.

AND Each day of the 30 day Commitment to the Peace, we commit to awakening to Truth by reading the following:

1. It is Love that I fear more than anything.

It is IN the Love of God that my separate personal identity (the self with the small s), and my little make-believe world will disappear.

Yes, my defenses would keep this Love from penetrating, and my defenses are strong, but not that strong.

2.The world that I see is only dreaming and I am the dreamer of this world.

It has nothing to do with God. Nor does it have any real effect on the safe and certain changelessness of Reality.

There is “Peace” far beyond understanding, to be found in that changelessness.

I will close my eyes and let my awareness take root in the changeless.

This world, which never was, will disappear in that eternal Peace.

3. This seemingly live experience is as easy or as hard as I want to make it.

And I am the only one who could possibly deprive myself of anything.

Love is all there IS – what I don’t give IS what I deprive myself of.

4. I have experienced the power of my mind. I know I have.

I thought it one moment, and the next moment it came to pass.

And I knew, or at least suspected, that this was the result of my mind.

And IF it was the result of my mind, then the question would have to be, “is my mind just a little powerful some of the time, or is it all Powerful ALL of the time?”

5. The quantum guys are pretty sure that wave-like patterns of energy behave differently depending on who is looking – the observer has an effect on that which is being observed.

Is this the power of my mind?

Is this why things, situations and events sometimes seem to manifest and change in response to my thinking?

But how could this be if the world that I see is separate, apart and outside of me?

Of course, if it is all just dreaming, then I could understand.

The world that I see is not outside of me. Cause and effect are not apart.

I am literally looking at my own thoughts and feelings. Which would explain why I can only see it if I believe it.

6. It doesn’t really exist. It’s just a projection of my mind. There is no world. Wow!

That’s a game changing realization. Is there a me, or am I just an image in the dream?

Am I the dreamer of the dream making the mistake of identifying with one of the images in my dream? And what about the others?

If I am the dreamer of the dream, then they are just projections of my mind. There is only me, and I am the only cause of the world that I see.

7. If I am going to assume my rightful place as ruler of my kingdom I am going to have to release all victim mentality.

I am going to have to stop blaming God for the bad stuff, and I am going to have to stop giving Him credit for the good that comes my way.

I am doing this to myself – the results of my mind.

I am forever grateful to God for the Love that I am and that continues to fill me every moment, and that joins me with all of creation.

And again we read the Commitment Statement:

I am the dreamer of the dream and the world that I see is a manifestation of my thoughts and feelings.

This world has no other cause, and I have had enough of pain, suffering and death.

I will choose love instead of fear – peace instead of conflict.

I will no longer look on disaster and catastrophe.

I will no longer look on myself and others as if we were bodies.

I will look on myself and others as if we were immortal beings of light eternally joined in a world of light.

We will be making our OWN statement for what we are WILLING to reduce by 50% this coming week so please be an observer of what you LET interfere with your Peace through out your day… and remember, we do NOT stop criticizing by criticizing ourselves, we do NOT stop blaming by blaming ourselves, we do not stop any behavior by focusing on it, we turn 180 degrees from it and start a new behavior, let that become our “habit” and lets see where that takes us… SO, we are going to observe over the next week what we LET interfere with our Peace… post it here (if you are willing) and Next week we will be making our own statements.. Example “I commit this week to reducing blame in my relationship by 50%” or “I commit this week to reducing criticism in my relationships (or at work or any specific or general area) by 50%” “I commit to reducing guilt in my life this week by 50%” and we are going to be specific on how… Example “I will give 10 times MORE appreciations statements than I will give criticisms” or “When I am feeling less than or fearful and start to blame, I will say something like hmmmmmmmmm, I WONDER what this is here to teach me”

1. Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.  ~ Lao Tzu

2. I do not wish to convert people from one organized religion to another. I have no interest in any of these organized religions. My interest is in Truth, the teachings of all Enlightened Ones. If at all there is any conversion, it should be from misery to happiness, from defilement to purity, from bondage to liberation, from ignorance to enlightenment. ~ S. N. Goenka ~

3. Unless we learn to face our own shadows, we will continue to see them in “others” because the world outside is only a reflection of the world inside

4. Everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die. It has nothing to do with dying. On the contrary, it has everything to do with choosing to be fully alive, loving and aware in this moment. Heaven is here, it is now, and it waits only on recognition and acceptance of what is, has been and will always be – an expansive awareness of union (Oneness) with all of creation.

5. Know that we have the power to make better choices: Love – not fear. Strength – not weakness. Light – not darkness. Life – not death. Spirit – not body/ego. Joy – not sorrow. Inclusive wholeness (oneness) – not separation. Forgiveness and innocence  – not guilt and grievances. AND experiencing the contrast is usually the way we learn to make better choices.

1. Trust does not micro-manage each incident, weighing and pondering what to accept or not. Trust knows the Big Picture, fully acknowledging the Mind from which its Self arises with a Heart felt in gratitude. Thanks Pamela

2. If we do not find love within ourselves, we will imagine it to be out there somewhere in the world or in relationships. All along, we are the Love that we seek, that everyone seeks, that everyone IS… Trusting that and being open to that will allow the Love to bubble up and flow and flowwwww and flowwwww….

 

3. I have searched the world over for the love of my life. I thought I had found it in her/him – and then in her/him – and then in her/him, only to have my heart broken again and again. Finally, after having given up the search, I found that she/he was with me all along. The Love of my Life was and is Love and Life itself – the miraculous, wonderful ever giving gifts of God/Source/Creator.

 

4. . Giving up our life for the sake of Divine Love does not mean that we make death welcome. It means that we give up our plan. We turn our will and life over to the Universal Power. Releasing our special relationship does not mean that we no longer Love and be with one another. It means that we turn our relationship over to Source and trust. We give up the idea of getting anything we thought we needed or wanted out of the relationship. This world is blessed by relationships that are used by the Divine Love for  it’s purpose. Thanks Benny for 2-4

 

Be in Love with your life
