1. What you focus on will manifest. What you resist will persist because you are focusing on it. If you try to solve problems by focusing on them you will likely be perpetuating them. A good way to deal with problems is to trust in, and expect, a miracle. And then stop focusing on them. Trust is the operative factor. If there is something you need to do, you will be told and/or gently lead. Another way to deal with problems is to recognize that you have no problems.

 

2. We are manifesting things and experiences all of the time. That’s what dreamers do. Most of it is by default. Our fears, judgments, guilt and grievances have been a part of us for so long that we are not aware of what our minds are doing and manifesting. It takes some willingness and vigilance to become aware and to change these default settings. Some of these weeds must be pulled if we would experience gentler more loving dreams

 

3. Few people can grasp the Truth as it really is. They grasp it intellectually, but when it is grasped in the Heart or It grasps you in the Heart, then It grasps you so fully that there are no longer two. There is no ‘you’ and It, there is only Truth. Truth suffocates the ego.
The grip of God suffocates the ego. It cannot breathe, and merges into the One. ~ Mooji

 

4. Everything I GIVE, I GIVE to myself…  There is only One. And One is NOT TWO… Outside of me there is nothing. As I see another I see myself. Having rests on me giving. I am the only one that can deprive myself. Whatever I am experiencing I have asked for, and I am doing it to myself. And when I have had enough suffering I will learn to be patient, kind, gentle, merciful and forgiving…. And remember the ego is reading this stuff too, it will use this to induce GUILT, IF I AM RESPONSIBLE, I MUST BE GUILTY… NOPE, not one word of that is True, I am 100% responsible, and 100% INNOCENT at the same time… I CAN CHANGE MY MIND AT ANY TIME…

1. “There is nothing worth holding onto any longer that keeps your peace and happiness at arm’s length. Become committed – fully committed to the experience of happiness” The Way of Mastery

 

2. True Rewards:  

Spiritual actions have significant rewards, but these rewards do not come to those who seek them. The gifts of Spirit must be offered without ulterior motives or strings attached. They must be given for the benefit of others without thought of how they might benefit self.

Gifts that are given spontaneously and in good faith return to the giver many times over. One who gives in this way lacks nothing of value and does not accumulate possessions that he does not need. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

3. Sure sign of spiritual maturity:

Taking responsibility no longer feels like you are taking the blame.

 

4. No one can give if he is concerned with the result of giving.  ACIM

1. Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. – Mother Teresa

 

2. Wrinkles should only merely indicate where smiles have been. ~ Mark Twain  

 

3. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye. ~ H. Jackson Brown Jr

 

4. Completion: Don’t be surprised when people come to you with the expectation that you make them whole. It is a common occurrence. But don’t take the bait. You cannot complete another, nor can another complete you. You must know that you are already enough. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

1. “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why.” ~ Mark Twain 

 

2. “Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside. Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside. If you’re truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in you can enjoy the silence.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 

3. You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. ~ James Allen

 

4. Life cannot be against you, for you are Life Itself. Life can only seem to go against the ego’s projections, which are rarely in harmony with the Truth… ~ Mooji

 

5. You feel lost to yourself and ask for directions. I show you that which can never be lost, your own Self. You want a map, but I give you a mirror and tell you to look beyond the surface, but you ask: How does it work? ~ Mooji

1. We Affirm: I have a wonderful mind. I can choose the thoughts I want to think today and I can choose the way I want to feel – all by guiding my own Consciousness, the same way I would train a puppy. I am patient, kind and consistent with my mind today in guiding it to the thoughts that feel good when I think them. I love and appreciate my beautiful mind.

 

2. Love created me like itself. I am Love. And what else can I do with Love but give it away. This is why giving is much more natural for me than getting. If the motivation for all of my thinking, saying and doing is getting, then I will get into nothing but scarcity. I can only give to myself, and I can only gain by giving. And Love is all there is.

 

3.  “Your gift to the world is not what you buy or do. Your gift is your happiness.” ~ Alan Cohen 

 

4. I have been asked to offer some explanation for bad things that seem to happen – rape, torture, murder, accidents, sickness, etc. There are two ideas I want to take out of the picture right from the start: (Thanks Benny)
A) God has nothing to do with this mad dream you seem to be having – God neither causes nor allows suffering – God knows not of any of this. If God knew of this world then it would be real, and if this is a real place then we are all screwed. Since God does not know of this world there is the need for an intermediary between the mind of God and the dreaming, sleeping mind of His holy son (you) – call that the Holy Spirit or Christ mind. So you might ask, “how can it be that God knows not of this world?” And I would say to forget about God – there is a place of deep peace that you can experience in your own mind where you know nothing of this world. There is your answer. How else could you possibly reconcile God with this world? You would have to say that there is no God, or that God is cruel, or that he is stupid and powerless. The truth is that God is Love and reality is safe and sure and kind. 

B) The other idea that I am going to ask you to remove from your thinking is the idea that you can possibly understand anything on the basis of what seemed to have happened to ‘them.’ There is no ‘them.’ There is only you experiencing the results of your mind. Yes, I know – you do not think that I am offering much help because you still want to know why those terrible things happened to them. Okay, let’s just skim the surface of that, but then I am going to have to move on. If someone seems to have been murdered, for example – do you really know that a terrible thing happened to them? Maybe they went through a tunnel and Jesus greeted them and they are in a better place. Maybe they would have been worse off having to get old and sick and then die. Suppose a child gets raped – is it possible that that person was a rapist in a previous life and the resulting guilt demanded an experience of rape? All I am saying is that you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure out why this or that happened to them. You do not have the big picture.
Now we are ready to talk about this subject from the only perspective that may allow you to gain some helpful understanding – from the perspective of what you personally are experiencing. You are the dreamer of your dream and you are always and only experiencing the results of your mind. If bad things seem to happen to you it is the result of your own negative judgments, fear, grievances or guilt. All of these ‘so called’ bad things are as per decisions that you make. But you forget and don’t want to know this because ego is strengthened when it can play the part of victim. Never-the-less, the Holy Spirit uses everything that happens, even the bad stuff, on behalf of your learning and awakening. So when you look back on your adversity you will ultimately see it as a blessing. This teaching is offered not to make you feel guilty about bad things that seem to happen to you, but to empower you with the idea that all power in heaven and earth is given unto you – you are not a victim, and you can change your experience – you can choose again. I don’t want you to believe any of this – I want you to actually choose a different way of thinking, feeling and seeing so that you can experience for yourself the power of your mind to change your experience. 
Enough said – just a few finally words: you are not a body, and what seems to be happening to your body is not happening to you. This is all just dreaming and none of it has any effect on reality. There is no world. God is Love. Nothing real can be threatened, and reality is safe and sure and kind.

Faith: Sometimes you have to take the leap, and build your wings on the way…
