Thought for the Day

You have a very special assignment
given you today, one
which will prove most helpful
to both yourself and all the earth
if you take the mission to heart
and practice with sincerity.

It goes as follows...

Whenever you encounter
struggle, unhappiness, dissatisfaction,
someone who is upset or has a tone,
(It does not matter if you experience
this within or see it in someone else.)
hit the pause button immediately,
consciously open your heart,
make gentle eye contact
and repeat the following:

"Your are entirely wrong about yourself.
You are Beloved of God
and also of me."

This is all.

But what a mighty GIFT
you lay upon the altar of the world!

***

Prayer for the Day

Today, I receive the LOVE of GOD.

I drink it in deeply
and let the healing begin.

Today, I offer the LOVE
of GOD.

May the world begin to heal.

May all beings be free.

Amen

Thought for the Day

What does it mean to search for Truth?

With ruthless honesty
it means to boldly and fiercely
search out and uproot
everything within you that
interferes with Truth.

Truth cannot be lost.

Truth cannot be searched for.

Truth cannot be found.

Why?

Because Truth merely IS.

And in ITS ISNESS,
wherever you are it is always there---
for IT is within you.

Truth can only be recognized
or unrecognized.

Under each cornerstone of fear
upon which you have built
your entire sense of self and its belief system
the Truth remains unhidden.

And the more you become willing
to LOOK directly at fear,
you see that it cannot be located,
being entirely unreal,
and the more Real and Substantial
what it was hiding becomes to you.

***

Prayer for the Day

Help me be very brave;
and help me cultivate a certain veracity
toward the willingness to be honest with myself
and look deeply at every experience
and each and every meaning that I give to it,
dear Lord of all that is.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

Your practice, should you accept it.
is to stay away from the mind today.

Each time you catch yourself
going there....tempted to engage
and participate in the madness,
drop it like a hot potato.

Be unwilling to allow the mind
to rain upon your parade.

Be faithful guardian of your peace.

For this is the day that
the Lord hath made!

***

Prayer for the Day

Fill me with your joy, oh Lord,
let me be the standard bearer
of Thy peace.

Thought for the Day

Be willing to open every door
which life presents to you today;
be it an afflictive emotion such as
fear, anger or guilt, a grievance, or that of
 intrapersonal or interpersonal conflict.

Let the LIGHT come streaming it.

There can be nothing which remains
hidden in God's Temple.

No one can fail to find God
if he does not close the door to Him
upon himself by refusing to face
his experience....every experience...
 with the deepest tenderness,
kindness, compassion and forgiveness.

Allow the LIGHT to come and heal you,
my sweet child.

For this is the doorway
which is clearly marked, "Come NOW! 
This way to everlasting PEACE and FREEDOM!"

***

Prayer for the Day

Father, I welcome your Presence
into every experience
I have today, be it perceived
as inner or outer.

Let Thy LIGHT come!

Amen

December 6, 2019

Thought for the Day

The imagined or impostor self
has interpreted the separation
as the means which you have made
to sever communication...
communion...CONSCIOUS CONTACT 
or UNION...with GOD.

But the Holy Spirit, your inner teacher,
interprets the separation
as the means to reestablish these
within your awareness.

They could not be broken,
but they most certainly have been made
obscure to you by you.

He knows that you are not separate from God,
that you could never be.

But the very power which you made
to crucify yourselves and your brothers
and sisters, can be turned around
and used for the purpose of the restoration
of the Temple in your awareness....
located in the silent depths within.

This is what waking up means.---
it's about finding your way HOME again.

***

Prayer for the Day

I am ready to remember everything.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Anytime you try to define
what you think will make you happy
in this life, you have created
a false idol, a graven image.

You have made a mockery of yourself
and thus the truth.

And you know what?

It is the human destiny of every idol
to disappoint, fail, and eventually
crumble into dust.

December 3, 2019

Thought for the Day

You cannot have both guilt and innocence,
for each is total. This means that
the presence of one entirely cancels out
the presence of the other.

Thus, the idea of anyone possessing both
is entirely meaningless.

Be willing to hit the pause button
each time that guilt is being experienced,
regardless of whether it is perceived
within or without, and sincerely ask yourself
the following question:

"Which one is true, guilt or innocence?"

To be sure, only one of these
actually has meaning which is true.

***

Prayer for the Day

I truly have come to know
that the belief in the reality of guilt
is the cause of 100% of this world's suffering.

Sure, the body can experience
pain, but only the mind
can suffer.

And the mind which knows
its innocence is free.

Hear then my most fervent prayer:

May all beings know such freedom.

May we live to see
the end of all suffering on this planet.

Dearest world....

I am here for you.

Amen

December 2, 2019

Thought for the Day

Why give imagined power
and feigned meaning
to that which can neither keep you safe,
nor make you somehow unsafe?

Your dreams do not protect you.

Nor can they attack you
or those you care about.

They can do nothing because
they are nothing.

All they can do is show you fear.

To keep obscure and unclear
is to keep fearful.

Without the protection of
obscurity and hiddenness,
only love and light remain.

Here is the only meaning
which is unequivocally true.

My darling....
Choose only to stand and move,
to live and be in light,
and everything else will naturally disappear
of its own accord.

***

Prayer for the Day

Can't touch this.

December 1, 2019

Thought for the Day

There is no form of darkness
which the LIGHT of LOVE cannot dispel,
unless it is allowed to remain hidden
from LOVE'S infinite grace
and healing power.

What is kept from LOVE,
what is hidden from LIGHT,
cannot be healed.

The stuff hidden from sight,
hidden from LOVE'S kindly beneficence,
is guarded mightily
by the sentinels of darkness---
the fierce protectors of the ego's secret lair.

Their singular function
is to keep the darkness hidden
so you will not see.

Yet you are the one
who made these guardians.

You made them from nothing
so they are nothing and therefore,
entirely meaningless.

How does one actively fear
what has no more reality than a mirage
rising from the desert floor?

"The quiet light in which
the Holy Spirit dwells within you
is merely perfect openness in which
nothing is hidden and therefore
nothing is fearful."

Jesus, A Course In Miracles

Prayer for the Day

The sentinels of fear
have been exchanged
for the sentinels of peace.

Thou art my hiding place.

Thought for the Day

"The journey that we undertake
together is the exchange of dark for light,
of ignorance for understanding."

Jesus, A Course In Miracles

Nothing...absolutely nothing....
which is clearly understood can be fearful.

For it is only while something
remains shrouded in darkness
and ignorance that it can seem frightening.

This causes you to shrink in terror
into further darkness.

Only that which remains hidden
can terrify, and not because
it is actually frightening,
but because it is hidden.

Be bold.

Be brave.

Turn into the wind
of what scares you and SEE.

Be curious.

Be faithful to the truth!

Be faithful to yourself!

You deserve it!

THERE IS NO SUCH THING
AS HIDDEN VALUE.

To hide is to keep apart,
which means to keep separate.

What is hidden cannot be loved
and therefore, it has to be feared.

***

Prayer for the Day

"Self-mastery is the key to freedom."
Baba

Thank you for the wisdom
and the grace
which has helped me
master the fear that has been
the great squanderer of my peace
and happiness in this life.

This truly is self-mastery.

This truly is FREEDOM,
and this heart cannot help but bow
in humbleness of heart
and gratitude
for the most amazing
of GIFTS.

Amen

November 29, 2019

Thought for the Day

Our inheritance is the Kingdom
of Heaven, given unto us in our creation.

Do not try to steal this birthright
from anyone, or you will experience
guilt as a certain consequence.

Anytime you offer FREEDOM to anyone
or anything anywhere, you are giving it to yourself.

The activity of selfing
is the inevitable consequence
of failure to see changeless innocence NOW.

Instead of examining thoughts,
evaluating actions and analyzing dream content
as though they were real, simply notice
that selfing is happening again.

This is an indication
you have failed to behold innocence
or this simply wouldn't be happening;
you would not be experiencing
judgment, guilt, pain and suffering.

Precious child, you have allowed yourself
to unravel, in your mind, far 
from your Home in True North.

Do not waste more time evaluating
your dream content.

Turn around and return! Look! Come Home!

Be free NOW!

***

Prayer for the Day

I drink deeply from the cup
of innocence.

Thank you for the gift
of eternal freedom and boundless joy.

Thank you for the eternal sanctity 
of my HOME in Thee, O God.

Amen

Thought for the Day
To celebrate Thanksgiving.)

In lieu of a thought, you are given
an assignment today.

Get out your mala or your rosary beads
and repeat the following as a mantra 108 times:

THERE CAN BE NO OPPOSITION
TO THE WILL OF GOD.

Whenever you think you are experiencing
the conflict of afflictive emotions
and troubling thoughts,
it is a safe bet that you are giving
the meaningless meaning
which it does not have.

Return to your mantra
and begin again.

The universe is so accommodating,
that you get as many do-overs
as you choose to have.

Is this not wonderful?

***

Prayer for the Day

NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING

So what is there to be unhappy about?

Only Love.
Only Light.
Only Peace.
Only Joy.

Thank you for my life.

November 27, 2019

Thought for the Day

How do we dare to think we have the right
to judge and condemn
those whom God has blessed?

They that accuse
are merely demonstrating
that they do not understand....anything.

There is absolutely nothing
in the Mind of God
that does not shine with His effulgence,
that is not radiating with His holiness.

And there is nothing
but the Mind of God.

The Always + Everywhere
has no limits or boundaries,
no edges to its loving Presence.

As gentle as a snowflake,
yet as fierce and mighty
as a thunderbolt.

***

Prayer for the Day

Where can I be separated
from the LOVE of GOD?

These eyes now gaze upon the world
with such tenderness,
for Your LOVE has overtaken me.

How does one say thank you
for such a GIFT?

November 26, 2019

Thought for the Day

The burden of guilt is so heavy
and so damaging,
why would you pronounce a verdict
such as this upon anyone?

Yet you do it willy nilly all the time;
it matters not upon whom you project guilt;
anyone who does not do things
the way you want them done,
who does not react in ways
you deem right and demand that they do,
anyone who does not live his life
as you think he should be living it.

If you could but see that
it is your own guilt you are protecting
by projecting it, you would not waste
another instant, but turn with haste
toward the ONE within
Who only wants your happiness.

You would allow your precious heart
to be healed, that you may gaze again
upon your own perfection.

***

Prayer for the Day

Take then this heart
and heal it.

Amen

November 25, 2019

Thought for the Day

Have you ever suffered from a nagging sense 
that something was wrong
but you didn't have a. clue what it was?

At times, it was only a dim awareness,
nothing you could quite put your finger on.

At others, it shrieked madly inside of you,
careening off of every surface
like a lotto ball.

While at other times you could tuck it neatly
into the back of your mind
like a pair of socks you put away
in the chest of drawers.

Yet still it was there.

Even when you were not consciously
suffering under the weight of it,
you knew it was still there
and that you would find it instantly
if you dared to look.

And that's the point. You dared not look,
because when you did,
the haunting always always returns.

I felt it as a child.

I felt it as an adult.

And you know what I found?

Until we accept our true function.
we all suffer from the pain of uncertainty,
instability, aloneness, and a nagging
sense that something is missing,
that your life is somehow
not enough---that you were meant
for more, more of what
you are not certain, only that
you are supposed to be living a life
which is more fulfilled,
more happy and more free, and,
above all, filled with more love
than the life you now live.

So the million dollar question is,
what is my true function?

Each of us has the same function
and it is to live in such a way
that our lives radiate nothing other than
one vital message to the world.

What is that message?

You are as innocent as the day is long.
You are a radiant embodiment of God's LOVE.
You are precious and dear to me.
And I stand in reverence and grattude
for the GIFT that you changelessly are.

And you know what?

You cannot communicate a message
as holy as this unless you know that it
is the sacred inviolate truth
about yourself.

***

Prayer for the Day

I would have my entire being
be transformed
into a radiant example
of the love of God;
that I may share that love
with all who have denied God
as I once did.

Amen

November 24, 2019

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

The guiltless and the guilty
are totally incapable
of understanding each other.

Repeat this statement a few times
in order to let it sink in.

The guiltless and the guilty
are totally incapable
of understanding each other.

The mind which knows of its innocence
through direct experience with their inner teacher
sees only innocence.

While the mind which thinks it is guilty
perceives sameness in others, 
yet sees differences.

This quite effectively destroys
any possibility of communication,
connection, camaraderie----
and above all, it destroys opportunity----
for fellowship and fidelity
which arises in the hearts of those
who are carried in UNION
on the wings of LOVE.

A mantra is given you to work with today:

"Just like me."

For how would you choose
to KNOW yourself?

Are you innocent or are you guilty?

Everything in your mind
other than the Holy Spirit
is unreal, fantasy, make-believe, illusion.

What is not in constant contact
with GOD cannot be real.

So why do you confine your interactions
to the domain of the unreal?

And then, believing your own narrative,
miscreate a fantasy existence
which is peopled with fantasy characters
and fantasy experiences,
fantasy problems and fantasy grievances
which have no substance and no Reality
to anyone other than sick minds?

***

Prayer for the Day

I say, doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take
I say, doctor, to relieve this bellyache?

Yes, dear God, this mind is very sick
and in need of good medicine,
the medicine which arises
from a mind which has been returned
to its Source.

Take then my humble offering.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Look honestly at the sheer number
of thoughts and feelings
you experience each day,
the encounters, interactions,
conversations and experiences.

And you know what?

Nothing you have ever thought,
felt or experienced
apart from God
has any reality whatsoever---
not even remotely.

Prayer for the Day

I need to shut up
and stay in my own lane.

My side of the palm, baby,
my side of the palm.

For I am doing more harm
than good in this world when I operate
as though I am "me."

I think I'm being wise and helpful
but I am clearly insane.

Certainly a well-meaning part
of the problem---
but most definitely not the solution.

How do I dane to think
I can help another when
my own house is not in order?

Let the focus today
be upon my relationship
with my inner guide.

Let me see as He sees
and nothing else.

And help me learn that silence
and love are the best
responses of all.

Thought for the Day

Anything....

Anything which you think
you understand
about God is not of God
and therefore has absolutely nothing
in common with truth.

Freely admit it.

You do not know at all.

You simply cannot trust the mind,
yet you bestow upon it such devotion
and unquestioning allegiance.

Why is this?

Faith is a step which is undertaken
wholeheartedly
in which you must leave "you" behind---
mind, body and world
are unable to gain access---
if you would enter into
the Sanctum Sanctorum,
the Holy of Holies.

November 20, 2019

Thought for the Day

The only condition for knowing God
is a guiltless mind.

And you know what?

It is His Will that you should know Him,
for to know Him is to know your Self.

Therefore, it stands to reason
that you must be guiltless.

Innocence must be the natural state.

Thus, to continue to feel guilt
for anything
is a willful proclamation
that you choose not to know God,
you choose not to know
your One True Self.

You choose, rather, to be an isolated,
miserable, lonely, limited
and frightened human being---
terrified of everything, exhausted
from having to work so hard
to keep the illusion propped up
and sufficiently defended.

You are saying that
you like your misery and prefer it
to an extraordinary life of freedom.

It's not wrong,
but darling, it's also not you.

Thought for the Day

Your function is to learn to remember
in each and every moment of this life
to decide to no longer be willing
to decide anything for yourself.

Just making an honest
and sincere commitment to this practice
is more than a full-time job.

Try this sincerely for one whole day
and you will find that
you have no time to spare
for either worry or that of
minding anyone else's business

This practice reflects the humble acceptance
that you know nothing.

And if you have truly accepted
that you do not know, how could you
be trusted to make the right decision
regarding anything?

Leave then all decisions
to the One Who Knows because
He speaks for God
and also for you.

Awaken to true
LOVE and Holiness!

This practice is how UNION
 is authentically
real eyes'd.

Cheat yourself no longer!

Rob not yourself
of the experience of irrepressible joy---
the fruit of living a thoroughly intoxicating
Spirit directed life!

Thought for the Day

How difficult can it be
to admit to yourself
that God is right about you
and that you have been
entirely wrong?

He created you out of Himself
and you still abide
within Him.

He knows you.

He knows you better than
you know yourself.

He knows who you are
and what you were made from.

He knows nothing which is
less than fully and completely
one with Him; part of His very Self,
 inseparably mixed, like water with water.

Yes, my dear,
that is just how holy you are!

Therefore, there can be
no one nor thing which does not possess 
this selfsame Holiness.

This means there is nothing
which is not worthy
of your complete love
and utter devotion
exactly as it is.

***

Prayer for the Day

What nobler mission, what more holy pursuit
than to totally and irrevocably commit oneself
to living as love in a loveless world?

A world which is mired in deception
and blinded by inner darkness,
choosing to see wrong rather than holiness?

What better use of time
than to bring light, and love
and mercy to a world
which has forgotten who it is?

So may I live
to my very last breath.

Amen

Thought for the Day

Sunday is practice day.

Today is a day in which
you will learn much about the nature
of true forgiveness.

Let's face it.

The world knows nothing
of forgiveness.

Stingily offered
with score card ever in hand,
it becomes the means
of proving you are better & more generous
than the next guy in your mind.

But today we freely admit
we know nothing of true forgiveness,
and so in each moment,
when tempted to see guilt anywhere
or feel it for anything, we begin
with the following prayer:

Father, I know not what
true forgiveness actually is.

Teach me about the nature
of true forgiveness
in order to restore what always was
to my unforgiving mind.

How can God break a barrier
which was never made?

But you see, my child,
when you release one that
you have made, it is gone.

Today I celebrate the freedom
of us all, with all of us, for all of us.

Thought for the Day

While you do battle with the mind
and feel bogged down with afflictive emotions,
mired in ego and character defects,
you would do well to remember this:

You cannot overcome an obstacle
which does not exist.

What God does not know
cannot be.
