March Thoughts for the Day

March 31, 2019

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

In every moment of life,
you are choosing between
what is here and what is not here.

If you choose rightly, 
your choice is to feel what arises,
to soften into it, to hold it gently,
to allow undoing to unfold.

You choose to experience
the whole of your life exactly as it is,
knowing all is well and everything
always turns out all right.

For in the end, this is a pledge
one makes to themselves,
to be entirely here for you, 
something you more than likely
have never done before, 
but it is a decision to truly be here
for the unfolding of life,
to gently receive it, recognizing that it is all GIFT,
no matter what.

It is a lesson in trust
and the extremely humbling recognition that
you are the doer of nothing
except how you choose to experience
the isness of what is.

It is ultimately the recognition
that LIGHT has no opposite,
it has no alternative
except in the manufactured imaginings
of a mind which chooses
to delude itself.

So that is your assignment.

Can you be very brave today
and welcome all of life,
all of your experience, exactly as it is,
without avoiding, resisting,
manipulating, arguing
or medicating yourself
with mind numbing and life negating
activities---such as excessive eating,
television, exercise or frenzied busyness?

Can you practice psychological
and emotional sobriety
by being with what is as it is
no matter what the inner or outer world reveals?

Then tell me about your day.

Prayer for the Day

I choose to live
an authentic life.

Amen

Thought for the Day

To be enamored by the mind,
caught up in thoughts and thinking,
binds you and blinds you
in a false prison
of your own making.

The prison door stands wide open,
yet you cling to the bars of your cell
in darkness screaming,
"Help me! Help me! Help me!"

"I am so lost! I am so miserable!
I feel so tormented!"

Dearest child, the LIGHT has come.
Walk out of the door
of the mind and enter the cave of the heart.

We are waiting for you.

***

Prayer for the Day

To stop doing what you have
always done requires the skill
of seeing clearly what you are doing,
what you have always done
for as long as you can remember,
and to know unequivocally
that it does not work.

Clear Seeing flooding the inner landscape
I head straight for the prison door.

It is the cave of the heart for me!

Amen

March 29, 2019

Thought for the Day

When you refuse to forgive a brother,
when you see not the LIGHT in him,
you are hating a part of yourself
and therefore denying the Father access
to His own inner altar within you,
for what He created
is forever part of Him.

***

Prayer for the Day

How could I have been so blind
my entire life?

And yet, steeped in ignorance,
believed I actually understood,
thought that I could see.

Can I forgive myself for this?

For I KNOW my Father SEES it not.

Then why do I find self forgiveness
the most difficult lesson of all?

Grace, I beg thee, show me how.

For I would KNOW the FREEDOM
which is offered me
and live as an extension
of the very HEART of God.

Amen

March 28, 2019

Thought for the Day

You are not saved from anything.

How can the unREAL be anything
other than meaningless?

Remember this?

You cannot make the meaningless
meaningful and ever transcend it.

For you see what you are not
from what you are.

You cannot see what you are
from what you are not.

My child, you are saved
for glory, a glory which is your birthright, 
established before
the foundations of the earth.

***

Prayer for the Day

In the stillness I rest
in the Everlasting Arms
of peace.

Amen

March 27, 2019

Thought for the Day

Your Father sees no stain upon you,
it is only you who do.

And this stain which you perceive
upon you is the one thing
which prevents you from seeing
the only thing which truly matters
in this life: to know your Father, or Source.

It is an intimacy beyond
human comprehension and a love
unlike anything this world has ever
or could ever know.

Any devotion less than this is a waste
of precious time and resources.

Dearest child, LOVE created you
like Itself.

And LOVE, if it be real,
holds no record of wrong.

Is it not time to come Home
to your Self?

***

Prayer for the Day

Precious Love...
take me Home.

Amen

March 26, 2019

Thought for the Day

If you do not gain anything else
from your time here on earth,
then let this be your own true take away:

There is no distance
between you and God.

There never has been
nor could there ever be.

***

Prayer for the Day

LOVE created me
like Itself; unchanged,
unchanging, unchangeable.

And there you have it.

Amen

March 25, 2019

Thought for the Day

Beloved child, you cannot hide your glory,
even from yourself;
for God has given it to you
and there is nothing which you can do
to hide its LIGHT, which shines effulgently
from the holy of holies within you
in everlasting peace and sublimity.

***

Prayer for the Day

I am Thine.

Forever and forever
only God.

Amen

March 24, 2019

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

The problem is not that
you know too little,
yet you believe that this is so.

And because you do believe this,
you are always seeking to understand,
that you may know even more.

The problem is that you know too much!

Baba said, "An ounce of direct experience
is worth a ton of theory."

And Jesus said:

"Truly I tell you, unless you change
and become like little children,
you will not know the Kingdom of Heaven."

Matthew 18:1 NIV

Thus, your assignment today
is to be very aware of when you think
you understand anything,
when you think you know,
when you believe that you are right.

This is the time to practice
the Texas two-step:

Step 1: The humble recognition
that you do not know,
that the greatest enemy to awakening
is the "I know" mind.

Nothing is ever as it appears to be
and there is always more happening
than what you could possibly see.

Step 2: Ask for help. Your inner guide
will gladly help you, if you make
a sincere request for assistance.

Help has never nor could it ever
be denied to one who truly wants it.

This is all. Mighty is the power you wield
when this is embraced
as a prescription for life
and not simply a Sunday practice.

***

Prayer for the Day

I must decrease. He must increase.

Live Thou through me
as me.

Amen

March 23, 2019

Thought for the Day

This world lives in a mesmeric trance
of condemnation, judgment
and self interest which is as delusional
as it is fear-based.

So deep the blindness that
we have almost entirely
forgotten about the LIGHT.

But what was the Will of God
to give you is yours forever.

Disobeying the Will of God is meaningless;
it is the belief that it is possible to abide in a world
of inner darkness which is separate from your Source, 
beholding a world in which you see no light.

It is meaningful only to the clearly insane.

Be willing to leave this vain imagining
by the wayside.

You need it not for it has not helped you.

Be confident that
you have not, nor could you ever
lose your True Identity.

For the Father hath declared,
"Thou are forever my Beloved Child,
the extension of My holy Self!"

***

Prayer for the Day

His Will is mine,
now and forever.

Amen

March 22, 2019

Thought for the Day

Have you ever considered
that the reason the mind gives you
so much grief is because you have not yet decided,
not yet truly picked a side?

You would rather try to stand
in the illusion of a gap
and play games with the mind
in a futile attempt to try to have both worlds.

Battling with the mind
and calling it 'spiritual inquiry'
is you engaging with distraction
and using it to remain on the fence.

And that running hither thither and yon,
asking every tom, dick and harry
for the answer you seek to your dilemma
when you have the answer
tied safely around your neck?

Do you know what you are doing,
what that's all it about?

It must be recognized as nothing more
than a delay mechanism
on the part of the false "i'
in a futile attempt to preserve
its dominion as the presiding "you."

***

Prayer for the Day

To the spiritual ego
it seems pretty brutal
to have someone SEE THROUGH YOU
so clearly day after day.

Yet I am not so ignorant
that I cannot see
that it is LOVE
daring me to look upon
what I denied because it was the truth.

Even if I am not exactly
jumping up and down and wildly grateful
for all of this, still I am grateful
and offer sincere and humble thanks.

Amen

March 21, 2019

Thought for the Day

Since the LIGHT can never
nor has it ever been extinguished,
you just might want to ask yourself
why you are not experiencing it.

Kind of a pink elephant in the room
type of question, is it not?

***

Prayer for the Day

Let me not take a single step,
nor utter a single word,
or even make a simple gesture,
unless I am feeling myself
basking in the sunlight of the spirit.

Amen

March 20, 2019

Thought for the Day

"This is all just bullshit
and anything I say or do
just adds to the storyline."

This statement is just a thought.

It doesn't mean anything
other than the meaning
which you give it.

But when you choose to believe it,
(and you must see that
no one is putting a loaded gun
to your head and saying,
"Believe this thought m----- f----,
or I'm gonna shoot you,")
it circumvents you from doing
what has been asked of you.

You have failed to see
that a simple, menial task
was actually a cleverly disguised opportunity
for you to get over yourself
and overcome you.

***

Prayer for the Day

The moment I entertain any thought,
any whatsoever, I go trippin'
down the freeway of delusion---
whose entire journey
and destination is the b-movie
so endearingly entitled,
"What Is Not Happening,"
in which I get to play the lead.

Help me to stay glued
to the Here and Now,
and tell the mind to take a long walk
on a short pier.

Note to mind:

You may have been helpful
getting me here,
but you have definitely outlived
your usefulness.

Take a break. You've earned it.

Spirit has this.

Amen

March 19, 2019

Thought for the Day

You've had it all wrong.

You have misunderstood the difference
between the horizontal axis
and the vertical one; the difference
between the long path
and the short path.

While you have tried again and again
to change how you relate to others,
to change how you relate to your world,
you have failed to see
that your only work in this life
has been that of learning how to
completely conquer yourself.

Ever submitting body, mind and spirit
to the living Christ within;
dying daily, the spiritual eye
ever on the inner LIGHT, until nothing
but that LOVE remains.

***

Prayer for the Day

Only Thee.

Amen

March 18, 2019

Thought for the Day

"What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?" I screamed,
exhausted, frustration being
a master piece of understatement.

"Your heart, my child, only that."

"What will you take from me?
What will I lose?"

"Only the LOVE you offer me freely,
which is no loss but only gain,"
said He.

"I am terrified," I spoke.

"Never in my life have I received something
which cost me nothing."

"Oh, I have paid, and paid dearly
many times over, for the meager crumbs
this world has offered me."

"Could you possibly understand
how distraught, how naked I feel,
to be asked to receive so great a GIFT
which costs me nothing,
save the willingness to open this heart
to You, to freely give it to You,
that it might be ravished in its entirety
by your LOVE for me?"

"I know...I know..." said He.

"But My laws forever and forever only give---
nothing short of EVERYTHING,
they cannot take."

"How simple is salvation, child."

"Look for it where it may be found,
my dear. In the heart....in your sweet heart."

***

Prayer for the Day

Thou art the Eternal Guest.

Be Thou the only Guest
of this heart.

March 17, 2019

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

Today's practice
is a practice in vigilance.

To every experience,
here is your calm and certain reply:

These thoughts are meaningless.

These feelings are meaningless.

This conflict is meaningless.

This uncertainty is meaningless.

You get the picture.

The mind is a meaning making machine,
and its interpretation
is always distorted---
not sometimes, nor even often,
always, my dear.

Yesterday you were told
that darkness is as total
as is LIGHT.

This is but another way of saying
that fear, the deluded fruit
of the "I know" mind,
is as total as is the Vision of LOVE.

Surely it is clear to you by now
that you will be given
what you most desire.

If you desire to be deluded,
you will be.

But if you desire to SEE, to truly SEE,
you will be granted VISION.

Sickness is separation.

And when you entertain
the noise between your ears
and your reactions,
you are sick and practicing separation.

Let your mantra be:

"Certainly there is more to this situation
than what I see."

Your mind cannot heal
its own distorted vision.

But if it can recognize that it is wrong,
deluded and unreliable
in its interpretations,
and asks for help,
help will indeed be given.

The invitation must come from you.

And whom you invite
through faith, will surely abide with you,
be it the Voice which speaks
for Truth or that of delusion.

***

Prayer for the Day

Be Thou the only One
Who rules this kingdom.

March 16, 2019

Thought for the Day

Can you dare to face every challenge
life presents you today
with tenderness and trust?

For in every single instant of life,
you both serve and are mastered by,
the kingdom to which
you have given
your faith.

One is this world, shrouded
in darkness, chaos, fear and uncertainty,
the other is LIGHT.

And no one can nor ever has
served two masters.

Darkness is as total
as is LIGHT.

You are not asked to find a way
to convince yourself
that the darkness you are seeing
isn't really there if that is what you are seeing.

But you are asked to look upon it
calmly and fearlessly
in recognition that it is meaningless,
for it is the LIGHT of Truth
to which you have given your heart
and sworn your allegiance.

***

Prayer for the Day

Dearest Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,
as we also have forgiven
those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
 but deliver us from
the blindness of ignorance.

For thine is the kingdom
and the power
and the glory
forever and ever.

Amen

March 15, 2019

Thought for the Day

What you experience as 'world,'
is a demonstration
of what you have placed
your faith in.

It is a perfect replica
of either your mind or that of spirit.

You have trusted your mind
for so long, and look
what that has gotten you!

Before you throw the baby
out with the bath water,
why not give spirit a whirl?

Judging what you do not know
nor ever truly tried to know
is the hallmark of insanity,
the zenith of ignorance.

Thou art my hiding place.

March 14, 2019

Thought for the Day

You are afraid of the Will of God,
which is just another way of saying
that you are afraid of waking up.

You fear awakening
because you believe that
the Will of God
is different than your own.

Because of this, you resist
awakening, for you believe that it
 might well force changes and possible losses
on your life and upon the lives of those
for whom you care.   This, the thinking mind,
deems entirely unacceptable.

But the Will of God is your will.

They are one and the same.

What could the belief that they are different
be other than the sickness 
of separation expressed?

And so you hide in darkness,
claiming that the light is not in you,
and because of this, you cannot gain access 
to the light of truth right NOW---
denying that it is both who and what
you already changelessly are.

***

Prayer for the Day

I give thanks for the LIGHT
which reveals
I already am
that which I seek.

Thought for the Day

Your liberation is certain
because it does not depend upon you,
it depends upon your
 Father's Word and promise.

His never fails, nor can it. Ever.

It is only yours which does.

Therefore, I implore, with all my heart,
that you place your certainty and trust
in Him and the power of what
He has to say about you,
not yourself.

This is how you gain direct access
to the fountain of grace,
which flows unceasingly on your behalf..

Who am I to know anything

Thought for the Day

Nothing can thwart or hamper
your progress in any way
other than that of believing your thoughts.

If you are to successfully
separate your sense of identity
from that of thoughts and thinking,
you must come to the realization
that no thought, none whatsoever,
is ever true.

***

Prayer for the Day

Garbage in and garbage out;
this is the mind's
singular task and preoccupation,
of which it is quite masterful.

So why even bother listening,
let alone take it seriously?

Acrimonious, sanctimonious,
a pompous and self-righteous ass
to boot...even when
it knows that it is wrong.

From henceforth
and forever more, only God.

Thought for the Day

Never, under any circumstances,
allow yourself
to forget these two things:

(1)

The Universe of LOVE has not stopped,
just because you do not see
or experience it.

(2)

Just because your eyes and heart
are closed, does not mean
that you have lost the ability to see.

***

It is given you, in any instant,
to say, "Yes, I want to remember
the glory of God," and mean it,
really and truly mean it, and you will be shown
all that has been kept for you
while you chose to see not.

Hear my "yes," oh Lord,

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

Today our work
is with the trust lesson.

Whenever fear, uncertainty,
the urge to judge or become
angry or frustrated arises,
calmly remind yourself
of at least one of these truths:

If I were not a part of God NOW,
His Will would not be unified.

Time is easily relinquished
when I remember that
neither beginnings nor endings
were created by Him.

You see the body, or you
recognize the spirit.

Only one is real,
and no one can, nor ever has,
seen two worlds.

The laws of the universe
do not permit any contradictions.

What holds for God, holds also for me
through all ways and all conditions.

Trust.

Infinity has no meaning
without me, nor I without it.

Practice sincerely, then tell me
how your day goes.

Is there a change?

***

Prayer for the Day

Fickleness is falling away
as I embrace the sanctity
of my eternal Home in God.

March 9, 2019

Thought for the Day

When you identify
with the personal self,
life is frightening.

There you are in your little dinghy,
clinging to the things
that make your little world
seem safe to you--- and out there,
in the water, is life,
and oh, how it can seem so unfair
at times, cruel even,
changing on little more
than a whim it seems,
setting out purposefully to terrify
and make things difficult for you---
fears of being alone, loss, uncertainty,
sickness, infirmity, aging
and death chasing you like
hungry ghosts.

Which kingdom are you
identified with?

Suffering is only possible
if you are identified
with the personal self
and its perceived kingdom
rather than with the ONE
who lives in GOD.

You, my dear child,
are part of GOD's definition
of Himself.

To be identified with mind and body
is truly to be lost, alone, afraid.

But how can this be?

How can you be separated
from Infinity
when Infinity has no end?

There is no boundary;
nothing sufficiently distinct
to not be Him, whose universe
is none other than Himself.

Can anything which is part of God
be lost to Him?

***

Prayer for the Day

May I lose myself
completely in Thee, oh God,
to be washed forever
on Thy boundless shore of LOVE.

Thought for the Day

The eternally glorified Self
is always with you,
yet you cannot and will not
KNOW It through direct experience
if you are not aligned
or attuned to the Divine within.

Where else, pray tell,
could the Kingdom of Heaven
actually be?

Prayer for the Day

Attuned completely
to the Kingdom of Heaven within,
I walk in this world,
but am not of it.

20 I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live; yet not I,
but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20 (KJV)

Thy Will be done as me.

Thought for the Day

No man can nor ever has
served two masters.

Mind or spirit are the only choices
you have available to you
in any given moment.

Observe today how quickly the mind
leaps to judgment---
everything is either right or wrong
based upon the mind's definition.

Pesky little potentate, the mind!

Observe without censorship
and above all, do so with kindness.

After you have allowed the mind
to rave and rant a bit, airing its discontent,
pause and say:

Nothing is happening here
other than stages of growth and change.

Think about it.

Rapists, murderers, confused presidents,
co-workers, children,
whatever.

Stages of growth and change.

Anything more or different
is the ego's interpretation of events.

And its contribution is neither
generous, healing or kind.

Everything, everything, everything
is unfolding exactly as it should.

Let me love my world today

or a universe composed of light.

This is the range of possibility;
the only seeming choice possible.

But in the end,
not a real choice at all.

I accept the omnipresence of truth---
this universe is composed of light,
and LOVE its singular expression.

May I serve only Thee.

Amen

Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing

Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing

....can separate you from
the LOVE of GOD.

Ever.

Prayer for the Day

If I gaze clumsily
at the beggar on the corner,
You are there.

If I look into the eyes
of the cashier at Whole Foods,
You are there.

If I listen to Donald Trump carry on
about something, still I see You
and only You.

Wherever I look, You are there.

I gaze into this heart,
regardless of what is happening,
You are there.

You are the LIGHT which nothing
can extinguish,
for everything yields
before Your Presence.

Thou art the Eye
which gazes through every eye,
the LOVE which streams
from every heart,
the PEACE which cradles everything
exactly as it is,
like a Mother which suckles
her precious child, adored more
even than Her own life.

God! God! Only God!

Amen

Thought for the Day

In the end, you must come
to a point of reckoning
with yourself.

You cannot be a victim
of anything except
your own misperceptions
of yourself.

And when you argue
with others about how difficult
the path to truth is,
you are playing the victim card
and wallowing in self-pity.

But all the while,
 you are already complete
in Him.

Change your seeing,
and you change your being.

Got it?

***

Prayer for the Day

Loud and clear.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

Friday evening, I had a very troubled
conversation with someone
who was suffering deeptly
and experienced great frustration
regarding how easy I make things sound,
yet how difficult they actually are.

And I sent everyone who was present
at the time the following quote
from Richard Rohr:

"I have never been separate
from God, nor can I be,
except in my mind."

The moral?

Stop listening to the mind!

To continue to listen to the mind
is a hugely defiant and arrogant act;
it argues for the reality of an experience
which is clearly impossible.

Yet once you believe it,
it becomes reality to you, though not real
in REALITY.

This is the only gift the mind
can offer you.

Your mind will always stand against
the truth of your Identity,
and when you believe it,
it produces an illusory experience
that you are what it tells you,
you are what you are not
and that you are where
you can never be---outside the glory
of the Father.

Why are you listening
to this nonsense?

Can you give the faith
that you are currently giving
to the ego mind of fear
to the TRUTH OF YOU?

The mind's thoughts, opinions
and beliefs simply do not matter.

But what faith you give to this,
you take away from That.

You are blind to your True Identity
until you accept that
TRUTH IS TRUE
AND ONLY TRUTH IS TRUE.

Nothing nothing nothing that the mind says
is or can be true.

How could you ever experience
truth directly
if you are unwilling to lay
aside the mask of mind
and accept that its input
is entirely bologna?

Every instant in which
you turn to your mind,
you turn away from Christ.

Every instant you believe that
you are the mask
and are therefore outside of Christ,
you argue for an experience
what cannot happen to anyone.

Period.

Who will ride herd on you
if you do not?

Or are you gonna keep on sitting
in your precious nest,
argue for an experience
which is not real and keep on crying out
for Reality to come rescue you
from what isn't?

Remember:

The only way out of an illusion
is to recognize, at long last,
that I was never in it in the first place.

This is your practice.

Be vigilant.

Truth awaits you.

***

Prayer for the Day

I am he whom the Father
glorified before
the foundations of the earth.

This is my only Reality.

This is the soul Identity
to which I attune
this heart unceasingly this day;
to which I bow in humble gratitude.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Your work is not to change
who you are, not to
fix who you are, nor even to heal it.

Your work is to SEE
Who you are already.

***

Prayer for the Day

There is an eternity of difference
between I believe
or even I want to believe
and that of I am.

In Thee and only Thee
I live and move
and have my Being.

Amen

God is the only light.

God is the only light.

God is the only light.

God is the only light.

***

Prayer for the Day

GOD is the LIGHT in which
I open these eyes which were blinded
by the darkness of ignorance
and at last truly SEE.

Amen
