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”

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 3.27.14 March 27, 2014

1. “I’d rather let my spirit fly free, than be caged by religion. Become a Buddha not a Buddhist; become a Christ not a Christian. One implies an awakened state of consciousness, the other a dogmatic approach to life.”God” is too big for one religion. Love & quantum physics are my religion. At one level, all religious traditions have the same aim—to transform the individual into a positive being. I love Jesus, I love Shiva, I love Krishna, I love Buddha. All rivers lead to the same ocean. “I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us.” ~ John Lennon

 

2. Relationship works best when you recognize that it is just you doing a dance with yourself. The more you give, the more you get, and the only thing that can be lacking is the love you fail to give. The more angry and upset you get, the more angry and upset the other gets. The more loving and peaceful you get the more loving and peaceful the other gets. And what you see in the other you strengthen in yourself because that is what you are focusing on.  And I am always in relation with the self. so, which self am I relating to? the small ‘s’ self or the Authentic ‘S’ Self?

 

3. Today, practice stepping back from a situation where you are deeply attached, where your heart races or your palms are sweating up a storm. Think about how trivial this incident is from the broad perspective of your True and Authentic Self. It really does not matter all that much. Go within. Allow Faith to move your Spirit in the direction you WANT not the direction you fear…

 

4. The romance has died and the promise of special love has crashed and burned. It always does. Now that same relationship that had the purpose of supporting the ego becomes a major force in undoing the ego. Learning and forgiveness opportunities abound. Now, instead of the relationship teaching you that you are separate and special, you can learn that you are one. As you recognize the all-inclusive oneness of love, your relationship becomes a phenomenal teaching accomplishment.

 

Love it Save it

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 3.17.14 March 17, 2014

1. “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~ Audrey Hepburn  … Laughing infuses every single cell in our body with Love.

 

2. Sometimes your only available transportation is a Leap of Faith. ~ Margaret Shepard

 

3. To love is to recognize yourself in another. ~ Eckhart Tolle

 

4. Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs. ~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

 

5. “I’ve heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts because they’re afraid that without them they wouldn’t be activists for peace. “If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all? My answer is  “Because that’s what Love does.” To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what’s right is insane. As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become. As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day wiith drool running down her chin. My experience is the opposite. Love is action.” ~ Byron Katie

 

6. When you say, I enjoy doing this or that, it is really a misperception. It makes it appear that the joy comes from what you do, but that is not the case. Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you. The misperception that joy comes from what you do is normal, and it is also dangerous, because it creates the belief that joy is something that can be derived from something else, such as an activity or thing. You then look to the world to bring you joy, happiness. But it cannot do that. This is why many people live in constant frustration. The world is not giving them what they think they need. ~  Eckhart Tolle

Let your Light Shine

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 2.4.14 February 4, 2014

1. “Knowledge is learning something new every day.  Wisdom is letting go of something every day” ~ Zen Saying

2. The Infinite me already contains everything I need to navigate through life, because I am One with Universal energy. In fact, I am Universal Energy… ~ Anita Moorjani

3. “What would happen if you moved and responded with less concern about what others will think? What if you let your actions speak for themselves? What would it be like to live your truth without excusing, defending, explaining, or justifying your thoughts or actions to others?” ~ Byron Katie

4. Love Without Conditions: When you love without conditions, you support the freedom of others to choose their own way, even when you disagree with them. You trust God’s plan for their awakening. You know that they can never make a mistake that will cut them off from God’s love or from yours. From Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

5. Relationship can be the fast track to our awakening. Our buttons get pushed and our stuff comes up. Our “stuff” is anything that is not Love, which are the blocks to the awareness of Love. And in relationship we project a lot of our “stuff” onto him or her. Lots of opportunities to look at, forgive and release our stuff – stuff that could have remained hidden for a long time otherwise.

6. If I would have someone believe that they have hurt me, I am laying a guilt trip on them that can only perpetuate karmic links of attack and counter attack. This is not the way to be free. I know that no one hurt me.  I am responsible for my experiences and my reactions – no one else.

7. Relationship works best when I recognize that it is just me doing a dance with myself. The more I give, the more I get, and the only thing lacking is what I fail to give. The more angry and upset I get, the more angry and upset the other gets. The more loving and peaceful I get the more loving and peaceful the other gets. And what I see in the other is what I see and strengthen in myself.

Be Kind even if you disagree...

1. “There are no new stressful thoughts. They’re all recycled.” – Byron Katie

 

2. It’s time to stop trying to get from another person what we are unwilling to give ourselves.

 

3. It is not death that sets us free. It is only the truth that will set us free. Killing the body will not heal the mind that makes the mistake of identifying with an illusion. That mind will simply make another illusion with which to identify.

 

4. We cannot pray our way out of a problems that we continue to “behave” our way into.  Become can be vigilant that we do not write with one hand and then erase it with the other. Affirm then stand firm.

 

5. Today We Affirm:  Life is to be savored and enjoyed! I am lining up with my highest good and adjusting my attitude as I tune to JOY. I allow happy experiences to flow on my path this week as I focus on laughing away all fear thoughts while I walk with ease through the open doors.

 

Peace of mind is internal

1. “There is a morning inside you waiting to burst open into light.” ~ Rumi

 

2. “You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” ~ Marianne Williamson 

 

3. “Listening for Truth: You are responsible for what you believe, even if you choose to believe what others tell you. So don’t be afraid to question the authority of others. No one knows better than you do what you truly need.” ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. “I have simply stopped arguing with reality. How do I know the wind should blow? It’s blowing. How do I know this is the highest order? It’s happening. Arguing with ‘what is’ is like teaching a cat to bark. It’s not very fulfilling. I am my friend and no longer confused. The way I know that reality is good is that when I argue the point I experience tension, fear and frustration. I lose – not sometimes, but 100% of the time. It just doesn’t feel natural inside: no balance, no connection. I want reality to change? Hopeless. Let me change my thinking. Some of us mentally argue with ‘what is.’ Others of us attempt to control and change ‘what is,’ and then tell ourselves and others that we actually had something to do with any apparent change that took place. This leaves no connection or room for God in my life. In the peaceful experience of no opposition to God, I remain aware of my nature: clear, vibrant, a friend, a listener. This is the time. This is the place. This is the vastness. Right here is paradise. Always. Always. Who cares if you’re enlightened forever? Can you just get it in this moment, now?”- Katie

 

5. Throw everything away, forget about it all. Relax a little bit, give life a chance to flow its own way, unassisted by your mind and effort. Stop directing the river’s flow! Actually, being what you are is the simplest. What is difficult is to stop being what you are not. Because we wish to keep hold of our attachments. Freedom is to be free of attachments and the main attachment is to the ‘I’-self. Leave your existence to existence, stop caring for yourself so much and let the Universe care for you; it is the best mother. There has to be some trust, not just belief, because trust is intimate… ~ Mooji
