1. The greatest enemy, whom with we most often struggle, is our own thinking.

 

2. If we want change, we must be willing to be uncomfortable.

 

3. Messages from Spirit: Don’t be surprised if Spirit addresses you when you get quiet. It would be more surprising if you were not addressed. Since Spirit doesn’t usually get many opportunities to get your attention, it usually takes advantage of the opportunities it gets. Messages from the Spirit are uplifting, inspiring, centering, encouraging. They do not complicate or confuse us, but simplify our lives and make straight our path. They make it easier for us to love ourselves and others. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. “The more you struggle to live, the less you live. Give up the notion that you must be sure of what you are doing. Instead, surrender to what is real within you, for that alone is sure….you are above everything distressing.” ~ Baruch Spinoza

1. If you’re alone in a room and you’re suffering, eventually it will dawn on you that you’re the one who’s causing it. Checkmate. ~ Bryon Katie

 

2. Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts. ~ Buddha

 

3. Is our personal spiritual quest selfish? Our mind is the only mind that we can be vigilant with – the only mind we can use to choose again. And yet, there is no self that is separate from all of us. Therefore, any progress that any one of us makes towards peace and love is beneficial to all of us. In fact, our own awakening is the greatest contribution any one of us can make for the good of all, including our loved ones. Accepting the atonement for our self is the way that I save the world. Thanks Benny

 

4. Can you live with all the ups and downs of the human experience and still be conscious of, and nurtured by, the truth of who you are?  YES! Awakening is not just for the sages of the past sitting on a mountaintop. It is for you. !~ Gangaji

 

5. What I resist has a tendency to persist because I am putting energy into it and perpetuating it by focusing on it. The more successful I am at just witnessing suffering and the sufferer, without identifying with any of it, the less urgency I feel about having to resist – and the more quickly it passes. Such is the power of acceptance and surrender.

1. The mind has a funny way of convincing us that if we worry about a problem long enough we’ll find a solution. Silly mind. Right now, you can decide to … Let Peace reign. ~ Cheryl Richardson 

 

2. It is not about self-improvement, or becoming a better version of who you think you are. It doesn’t work like that. Anything that you do to increase your value in your sight will set you back. Awakening demands the undoing of who you think you are – the annihilation of what use to be a separate being with personal interests. And this undoing is not something that you do.

 

3. Clarity doesn’t come out of the discussion.  Clarity comes out of the surrender to love. ~ Gangaji

 

4. Being fully present in each moment… such a profound lesson to be learned from dogs.

1. Surrender: You can’t have control if you want to live a life of Spirit. Spirituality requires surrender. You aren’t asked to surrender to someone else, nor are you asked to capitulate to your own ego. You are asked to surrender to the River that lies within you. The River is in charge. Your only choice is to fight its authority (an exhausting choice) or to accept it. Some people figure out right away 
that surrender is inevitable. For others, it takes years. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

2. “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”-Marcus Aurelius

 

3. This is a hospital where we have come to be healed of a mental illness called split mind (the idea of separation). We are here only for our healing. This is a school where we have come to learn and to undo the idea that we are a thing that we are not. We are here only to learn, and lessons are repeated over and over until we learn the Truth. And it is the Truth that will set US free.

 

4. If I defend myself I am attacked. By planning for the defense of a self that I am not, I are attacking the Self that I AM. And if I feel defensive about anything I have identified with a self that I am not.

The ego would convince us that we are a thing that we are not. In fact, the ego is the thing that I believe I am (which I am not).

1. Today I forgive and I am forgiven. I surrender to Spirit all shame, blame and guilt. I am washed clean in the Living Waters as I focus on the good in all creatures. My mistakes do not define me. I have a chance today to begin again. I will not punish myself nor anyone else. By the Grace of God (Good/Source/Creator), this is a day of renewal as I release all attack thoughts & replace them with gentle love. I am guided by Spirit to make good choices and I turn to the Presence within to meet all my needs. I am happy and free in the Peace of God today. Jacob Glass

 

2. Rather than letting our mind drift from past to future, we can stay ever in the now. Rather than looking only at the world around US, we can look to the light within. Rather than self-centered thoughts concerned only about getting and defending, we can extend Love and nurture Gratitude. Rather than always looking for external stimulation, be content with inner peace. While we are mindful of these things, the rest of our situations will self-correct as we sail into smooth and friendly waters.

 

3. We are already enough. we are as God/Source/Creator created US. Our worth has been established by our Source. We don’t need to justify, prove or improve anything. We don’t need external validation or Love. We ARE Love. There is no external. We are healed, whole and complete. We are enough.

 

4. There are only two emotions. If it is not Love, then it is fear. There are only these two. There are many different names for “fear”, i.e., jealousy, anger, guilt – but “fear” is at the core of all that is not Love. To create is to Love. Love is all there is. Love is all that was ever created. Love does not have an opposite called “fear”. Fear was never created. You, as a creation of God/Life/Creator, are an extension of Creations’ Love. If Love is not in our awareness we do not know that which we ARE, which is like being dead. Resurrection and healing is in order. What is not Love is a Call for Love, a shift in perception, which is simply our minds to be healed from our false beliefs.

 

5. A holy relationship is a relationship where two have entered into an agreement with each other and with the Holy Spirit to give their relationship over to Him for the purpose of healing and wholeness (as opposed to that other purpose of supporting a failing ego).  Thanks Benny, You Rock!!

1. “You are what exists before all stories. You are what remains when the story is understood.” ~ Byron Katie

2.”You surrender to a lot of things which are not worthy of you. I wish you could surrender to your Radiance… your Integrity… your beautiful human Grace.”  Yogi Bhajan

3. “Who am I without my story? New New New.” ~ Byron Katie

4. By BEING our Authentic Self, we allow change in our world that was not here before… While playing a “role” in our “stories of littleness and fear” it is not possible to do this… being aware of the temptation to see ourselves unfairly treated simply means to keep vigilant to the awareness of Truth and Loves presences in each moment… while re-membering if it is NOT Love, it’s a call for Love… not for the seeming “OTHER” but for ourselves… because everything I give, I give to myself… what I put out comes back to me like a boomerang… so IF I don’t like what I am getting, I can look at what I have been giving out into the world… not the situation but the Universe as a whole…

What we believe ourselves to be, we become...

What we believe ourselves to be, we become…

1. I won’t Let anyone rob me of my Joy, because I am giving it away…

This little Light of mine, I’m gonna LET it SHINE… 

 

2. “If you can solve your problem, then what is the use of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?” ~ Shantideva

 

3. “The words you speak become the house you live in.” ~ Hafiz

 

4. “Now that all your worry has proved such an unlucrative business, Why not find a better job.” ~ Hafiz

 

5. Each morning when I open my eyes, I think three things Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU… Then I set out to make the best use of this Gift of today…
