1. Stay Humble, I could be wrong…..

 

2. In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong. ~ Paulo Coelho

 

3. I am doing this to myself. Everything I experience I have asked for and received as per my request. Yet, everything that happens is carefully planned by one whose only purpose is my good – even what seem to be the bad things that happen. How I see and experience the stuff that happens is what I am doing to myself, and I may or may not be making the best choices. Which is why I am learning to choose again – to make better choices in how I see and react to the stuff that seems to happen.

 

4. This is a hospital and we are here for one reason – the healing of our sick split mind. Another way to say it is that this is a school and we are here to learn. Learning and healing are the same thing when it comes to correcting a mind that is momentarily mad with guilt. One other thing – when we meet another it is our self that we meet. There is no mind that is not our mind, and all of our mind must learn and accept a healing. That is why there is a plan, and a curriculum has been established.\\

 

5. “We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.” ― Hermann Hesse

Within you

Good Morning Precious One, many already know, I am traveling for 10 days… although I am still “gathering the evidence each morning” I thought I would re-post an entire blog today from Jacob Glass, if you don’t know Jacob yet, you might want to check him out, he by far has been my greatest teacher… I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jacob, he kicked my spiritual BS ass… 

HUMBLE, HUMBLE, HUMBLE by Jacob Glass

 
“Prayer is a way to true humility . . .  Humility brings peace because it does not claim that you
must rule the universe, nor judge all things as you would have them be.” 
– A Course in Miracles

Humility is not humiliation. These are two very different things which seem to be very confused in our current culture in much the same way that confidence and arrogance get confused. To be humble in the right sense is to recognize that “of myself I can do nothing” while at the same time recognizing that by our willingness miraculous things can be accomplished through us, by that Greater Power. 
 
This is why I love the teachings of the Tao te Ching. It is a path of endless humility, and therefore a path of endless peace and serenity. It is truly the extreme opposite of the ego-dominated world systems which are all about being special, standing out from the crowd, competing against others in order to WIN something, which only leads to more competition in order to keep your  name out there.
 
 Everything we strive and struggle to get, we will usually have to struggle and strive to keep and maintain.  What we had to “get” we usually have to “keep.”  This is why I love the Course lesson of “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.” This is a way of saying, I only want what has been given me by the Grace of God – I only want what is MY Divine Inheritance, not what the person next to me has – that is just an appearance anyhow. 
 

My most frequent daily prayer is extremely simple, and it is this: “Lord, make joyful use of me today. You know how to do it best – I do not. I’ll be busy choosing happiness, so you know where to find me and how to best use me. Go for it.”
 
This is a RADICAL shift in the way we approach our daily life. It IS the recognition that we are not here to get, nor to sacrifice. We are here to extend, to create, to enjoy. But as we say, it often takes great effort to arrive at effortlessness. And the effort is all of our mental work as we increase our willingness to ALLOW Life to work rather than “making” it work. We take control of guiding our minds to the downstream thoughts rather than fighting and swimming against the current. We learn how to truly RELAX and LET GO  – and in the letting go, we are at last opening to receive what has already been given. We are no longer trying to control the universe nor decide what “should” or “shouldn’t” be happening. We let God BE God, and we let ourselves be the Child of God. 
 
If you want a day free of stressful thinking and suffering today, practice true humility throughout the day. To be humble, is to let go of defensiveness, let go of impressing anyone, let go of what others think or say about you, let go of protecting what you think you have or have accomplished. You simply show up, prepared, on time, doing what you said you would do, with a good attitude. And all the rest you leave to God to handle as you watch the miracles of Grace unfold before and through you. Pretty good gig, actually.
