Being REAL: Some of US think that being Spiritual means being positive, but being Spiritual means being Conscious and Aware. To Become Conscious is a much different thing than to become positive. To become Conscious and Aware, we must become Authentic. Authenticity (Real) includes feelings of both positive and negative. (being honest about where we are in the moment and not pretending)

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”

Healing takes place not because of the intervention of God, but through developing a state of consciousness in which sin, disease, and death have no reality, a consciousness which no longer battles any form of error and no longer tries to get rid of them. The art of Spiritual Healing. ~ Joel Goldsmith

You are the Universe

Both Sides of the Coin: In relationships, as in consciousness, both sides of the coin must be accepted as equal. One cannot move out of conflict with another until the experience of both people has been honored. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

Thoughts to Contemplate for Today 4.5.14 April 5, 2014

1. When we become anxious or stressed, our outer purpose has taken over, and we havr lost sight of our inner purpose. We have forgotten that our state of consciousness is primary, all else secondary.

 

2. EFFORTLESS JOY: We all seek to find love, to be happy, and to be successful. Yet we struggle because the very formula that we follow for a life of prosperity is completely flawed. Discover a new approach to life that alleviates suffering and guarantees effortless, abundant Joy.

1. “The Dance is about finding ways to let our essential nature guide our choices and our actions. It’s about honestly looking at the times when it is hard for us to remember and be guided by who we really are- the times when we are tired and hurt, frightened and angry. It’s about the places in this culture where it is easy to become confused about who we are – when we are dealing with money and sex and death and power.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer from THE DANCE

Ah yes, the places where we sink into unconsciousness. How to stay awake to what we are? Well, in part it helps to accept that human beings repeatedly go to sleep & wake up. Oh, I don’t mean to suggest that we can’t ever learn to be more frequently awake – only that trying “harder” won’t necessarily work, & may just stir the fears that make going unconscious likely. It is a steady, gentle practice finding our own way of coming back to center, of grounding & checking in with ourselves, of calming anxiety & letting ourselves BE here. Whether we pray or meditation, follow our breath or consciously move & ground our body. . . . or all of these and more. . . we can come home to ourselves a thousand times a day.

 

2. OUR MOST FRAGILE VULNERABILITY: If we are able to travel to the very center of our deepest vulnerability, around which we have built up many layers of defenses, and allow it to be there – without doing anything with it, something miraculous will happen. While it will smart initially, travelling to the center of our vulnerability and allowing it to be, will initiate a growth in stature within. When we realize we can give up our most cherished defenses, what we thought was going to flounder and die will actually rise up, much like a tightly-bound bud springing up into bloom at the first sight of Light and Love. So go there now. As we do so, our courage will be rewarded a thousandfold. And if you would like a hand with it, let me know.  Thanks Daniel.. 

 

3. The goal of our spiritual journey is not about being a successful human being having more serial adventures in space/time. It is about going beyond illusions – beyond that mistaken idea of being a separate mind contained in a body seemingly living in a world of opposites, separation and death. It’s about becoming aware of our Self as an infinite and eternal being.

 

4. Miracles transcend the body. They are sudden shifts into invisibility, away from the bodily level. That is why they heal. ACIM T-1 I.17
