A Wonderful Sunday To You!

"Our Lord and our God,
You are indeed the source of our life in Christ Jesus. Of what then could we boast? And yet, we seek constantly to lord it over each other. Even in the darkest questions, those in which the information available to us is scant, we assume that we know enough to dismiss those who disagree with us with a curt 'He doesn't get it.' We laugh, we criticize, and we talk about each other in ways that demean, in ways that give evidence of the pathetic attempt to elevate ourselves above all others. Forgive us our sin. And drive us to the cross. For beneath the cross, the ground is completely level. There is no room for boasting unless it be that boasting in the Lord whose power was made complete in weakness. For he alone is worthy of our praise, our veneration, our adoration, and the complete devotion of our hearts and our minds.
It is in his name that we pray.
Amen

Pennies

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the
sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is
the first time I've ever heard this twist on the story.
Gives you something to think about.

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband
were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's
employer's home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about
the weekend.. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home
on
the waterway, and cars costing more than her house

The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was
delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very
wealthy live. The husband's employer was quite generous
as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene
knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in
this
kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself
immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive
 restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly
ahead
of Arlene and her husband.

 He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for
a long, silent moment.

 Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There
was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny
that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts

Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the
penny.

He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as
 if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need
did
 this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take
the
 time to stop and pick it up?

 Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her.
 Finally, she could stand it no longer. She casually
 mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection,
and
 asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.

 A smile crept across the man's face as he reached
 into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to
 see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point
of
 this?

 'Look at it.' He said. 'Read what it
 says.' She read the words '  United States of
 America  '

 'No, not that; read further.'
 'One cent?'

 'No, keep reading.'
 'In God we Trust?' 'Yes!'

 'And?'

 'And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy,
 even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin I see that
 inscription. It is written on every single  United States
 coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message
 right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to
 pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my
 trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a
 response to God; that I do trust in Him..

 For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were
 gold. I think it is God's way of starting a
conversation
 with me. Lucky for me , God is patient and pennies are
 plentiful!

 When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the
 sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized t hat I
 had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I
 cannot change.]

 I read the words, 'In God We Trust,' and had
 to laugh... Yes, God, I get the message.

 It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number
 of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are
 plentiful!

 And, God is patient..

 The best mathematical equation I have ever seen:
 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given

 That's the whole gospel message simply stated.

 Take 60 seconds give this a shot! Let's just see
 if Satan stops this one.

 All you do is -

 1.. Simply say a small prayer for the person who sent
 you this, (Father God bless this person in whatever it is
 that you know he or she may be needing this day.)
 2. Then send it on to five other people. Within hours
 five people have prayed for you, and you caused a
multitude
 of people to pray to God for other people ....

Redeeming Insult


    "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a
    tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, don't stand against an
    evil person. If someone hits you on the right cheek, then
    turn and let him hit the other cheek too."

                            -- Matthew 5:38-39 (ERV)

KEY THOUGHT:
Jesus' words draw us to the values of our Heavenly Father. Rather thanpassively accepting evil, we are to overcome evil with good. We are to work redemption in the face of mistreatment like the suffering servantin Isaiah who suffers, serves, and redeems in the face of attack and
ridicule. Jesus reminds us that we are to redeem rather than to try to get even. A slap on the cheek in Jesus' day was more a social insult than a physical injury. In our day, we seldom slap someone on the cheek to embarrass or humiliate that person. Instead, we shoot them a
"zinger," cut them down sarcastically, or tell a joke at their expense. This is out of bounds for believers. Such talk does not accomplish the redemption God has called us to share with others.


TODAY'S PRAYER:
Holy and patient Father, please strengthen me so that I will look for ways to redeem those who shame and humiliate me. I know that vengeance will only poison my heart and alienate me from the insulting party.
Give me grace to react with kindness even toward those who are unkind to me. In the name of the one who did not rebuke his accusers I pray.
Amen.

God is Saying to Us Today:

We believe: “If I can just love others, they will love me.. Then I will be lovable, and I can love me.”

 

The reverse of this is that so many people hate themselves because they feel there is not another whom love them. This is a sickness – it’s when people are truly “lovesick” because the truth is, other people do love them, but it doesn’t matter. No matter how many people profess their love for them, it is not enough.

 

First, they don’t believe you. They think you are trying to manipulate them – trying to get something. (How could you love them for what they truly are? No. the re must be mistake. You must want something! Now what do you want?)

 

They sit around trying to figure out how anyone could love actually love them. So they don’t believe you, and embark on a campaign to make you prove it. You have to prove your love for them. To do this, they may ask you to start altering your behavior.

 

Second, if they finally come to a place where they can believe you love them, they begin to worry about how long they can keep your love. So, in order to hold onto your love, they start altering their behavior..

 

Thus, two people literally lose themselves in a relationship. They get into the relationship hoping to find themselves, and they lose themselves instead.

 

The losing of Self in a relationship is what causes most of the bitterness in couplings.

 

Two people join together in a partnership hoping that the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts, only to find that it’s less. They feel less than when they are single. Less capable, less able, less exciting, less attractive, less joyful, less content.

 

Relationships were never meant to be this way. Yet this is how they are experienced by more people that you could ever know.

 

Why? Why?

 

Because people have lost touch with (if they ever were in tough with) the purpose of the relationships.

 

When you lose sight of each other as sacred souls on a sacred journey, then you cannot see the purpose, the reason, behind all relationships.

 

The soul has come to the body, and the body to life, for the purpose of evolution. You are evolving and you are becoming. And you are using your relationship with everything to decide what you are becoming.

 

This is the what you came here to do. This is the Joy of creating Self. Of knowing Self. Of becoming, consciously, what you wish to be. It is what is meant by being Self conscious.

 

You are here in the in the relative world so that you might have the tools with which to know and experience Who You Really Are. Who You Are is who you create yourself to be in relationship to all the rest of it.

 

Your personal relationships are the most important elements in the process. Your personal relationships are therefore Holy ground. They have virtually nothing to do with the other, yet, because they involve another, they have everything to do with the other.

 

This is a divine dichotomy. This is the closed circle. So it is not such a radical teaching to say, “Blessed are the Self-centered, for they shall know God.” It might not be a bad goal in your life to know the highest part of your Self, and to stay centered in that.

 

Your first relationship, therefore, must be with your Self.

 

You must first see your Self as worthy before you can see another as worthy. You must first see your Self as blessed before you can see another as blessed. You must first know Your self to be holy before you can acknowledge holiness in another.

 

If you put the cart before the horse – as most religions ask you to do – and acknowledge another as holy before you acknowledge yourself, you will one day resent it. If there is one thing none of you can tolerate, is someone being holier than thou. Yet your religions force you to call others holier than thou. And so you do it – for a while. Then you crucify them.

 

You have crucified (in one way or another) all of My teachers, not just One. And you did so not because they were holier than thou, but because you made them out to be.

 

My teachers have all come with the same message. Not “I am holier than thou, “ but “You are as holy as am I.”

 

This is the message you have not been able to hear; this is the truth you have not been able to accept. And this is why you have never truly, purely fallen in love with your Self.

 

And so I tell you this: Be now and forever centered upon your Self. Look to see what you are being, doing, and having in any given moment, not what’s going on with another.

 

It is not the action of another, but in your re-action that your salvation will be found.

 

I believe some of us may respond with: I know better, but somehow it sounds as though we should not mind what others do to us in relationships. They can do anything, and so long as we hold our equilibrium, keep our Self centered, and all that good stuff, nothing can touch us. But others do tough us. Their actions do sometimes hurt us. It is when the hurt comes into relationships that I don’t know what to do. It’s all very well to say “stand aside from it; cause it means nothing,” but that’s easier said than done. I do get hurt by the words and actions of others in relationships.”

 

God responds: The day will come when you will not. That will be the day on which you realize – and actualize – the true meaning of relationships; the reason for them.

 

It is because you have forgotten this that you react the way you do. But that is alright. That is part of the growth process. It is part of evolution. It is Soul Work you are up to in relationship, yet there is a grand understanding, a grand remembering. Until you remember this – and remember then also how to use relationship as a tool in the creation of Self – you must work at the level at which you are. The level of understanding, the level of willingness, the level of remembrance.

 

And so there are things you can do when you react with pain and hurt to what another is being, saying or doing. The first is to admit honestly to yourself and to another exactly how you are feeling. This many of you are afraid to do, because you think it will make you “look bad.” Somewhere, deep inside of you, you realize that it probably is ridiculous for you to “feel that way.” It probably is small of you. You are “bigger than that.” But you can’t help it. You still feel that way.

 

There is only one thing you can do. You must honor your feelings. For honoring your feelings means honoring your Self. And you must love your neighbor as you love yourself. How can you expect to understand and honor the feelings of another if you cannot honor the feelings within your Self?

 

The first question in any interactive process with another is: now Who Am I, and Who Do I want to Be in relationship to that?

 

Often you do not remember Who You Are, and do not know who You Want to Be until you try out a few ways of being. That is why honoring your truest feelings are so important.

 

If you are feeling a negative feeling, simply having that feeling is frequently all that is needed to step away from it. It when you have the anger, have the upset, have the disgust, have the rage, own the feeling of wanting to “hurt back” that you can disown these first feelings as “not Who You Want to Be.”

 

The Master is one who has lived though enough such experiences to know in advance what his/her final choices are. The Master does not need to “try out” anything. The Master has worn these clothes before and know they do not fit. And since the Master’s life is devoted to the constant realization of Self as one knows oneself to be, such ill fitting feelings would never be entertained.

 

This is why the Master is imperturbable in the face of what others might call calamity. A master blesses calamity, for the Master knows that from the seeds of disaster (and all experience) comes the growth of Self. And the Master’s second life purpose is always growth. For once one has fully Self Realized, there is nothing left to do except to do more of that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Many Form; One Correction

 

It is not difficult to understand the reasons why you do not ask the Holy Spirit to solve all problems for you. He has not greater difficulty in resolving some than others. Every problem is the same to Him, because each one is solved in just the same respect and through the same approach. The aspects that need solving do not change, whatever form the problem seems to take. A problem can appear in many forms, and it will do so while the problem lasts. It will recur and then recur again and yet again, until it has been answered for all time and will not rise again in any form. And only then are you truly released from it.

 

The Holy Spirit offers you release from every problem that you think you have. They are the same to Him because each one regardless of the form it seem to take, is a demand that someone suffer loss and make a sacrifice that you might gain. And when the situation is worked out so no one loses is the problem gone, because it was an error in perception that now has been corrected. One mistake is not more difficult for Him to bring to truth than is another.  For there is but one mistake; the whole idea that loss is possible, and could result in gain for anyone. If this were true, then God would be unfair; sin would be possible, attack be justified and vengeance fair.

 

This one mistake, in any form, has one correction. There is no loss; to think there is, is a mistake. You have no problems, though you think you have. And yet you could not think so if you saw them vanish one by one, without regard to size, complexity, or place and time, or any attribute which you perceive that makes each one seem different from the rest.  Think not the limits you impose on what you see can limit God in any way.

 

The miracle of justice can correct all errors. Every problem is an error. It does injustice to the Son of God, and therefore is not true. The Holy Spirit does not evaluate injustice as great or small, or more or less. They have no properties to Him. They are mistakes from which the Son of God is suffering, but needlessly. And so He takes the thorns and nails away. He does not pause to judge whether the hurt be large or little. He makes but one judgment; that to hurt God’s Son must be unfair and therefore is not so.

 

You who believe it safe to give but some mistakes to be corrected while you keep others to yourself, remember this: Justice is total. There is no such thing as partial justice. If the Son of God is guilty then he is condemned, and he deserves no mercy from the God of justice. But ask not God to punish him because you find him guilty and would have him die. God offers you the means to see his innocence. Would it be fair to punish him because you will not look at what is there to see? Each time you keep a problem for yourself to solve, or judge that is one that has no resolution, you have made it great, and past the hope of healing. You deny the miracle of justice can be fair.

 

If God is just, then there can be no problems that justice cannot solve. But you believe that some injustice are fair and good, and necessary to preserve yourself. It is the problems that you think are great and cannot be resolved. For there are those you want to suffer loss, and no one whom you wish to be preserved from sacrifice entirely. Consider once again your special function. One is given to you to see his perfect sinlessness. And you will ask no sacrifice of him because you could not will he suffer loss. The miracle of justice you call forth will rest on you as surely as on him. Nor will the Holy Spirit be content until it is received by everyone. For what you give to Him is everyone’s, and by your giving it can He ensure that everyone receives it equally.

 

Think, then, how great your own release will be when you are willing to receive correction for all your problems. You will not keep one, for pain in any form you will not want. And you will see each little hurt resolved before the Holy Spirit’s gentle sight. For all of them are little in His sight, and worth no more than just a sigh before they disappear, to be forever undone and unremembered. What seemed once to be a special problem, a mistake without a remedy, or an affliction without a cure, has been transformed into a universal blessing. Sacrifice is gone. And in its place the Love of God can be remembered, and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss. God cannot be remembered until justice is loved instead of feared. He cannot be unjust to anyone or anything, because He knows that everything that is belongs to Him, and will forever be as He created it.

 

For us repeat fourteen times each day the following:

 

“I am not a body. I am free.

For I am still as God created me.”

 

“I trust my brothers, who are one with me.”

 

“No one but is my brother. I am blessed

With oneness with the universe and God.

My Father, one Creator of the whole

That is my Self, forever one with me.”

 

“I am not a body. I am free.

For I am still as God created me.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The Lesson of Love

The relationship of anger to attack is obvious, but the relationship of anger to fear is not always so apparent. Anger always involves projection of separation, which must ultimately be accepted as one’s own responsibility, rather than being blamed on another. Anger cannot occur unless you believe that you have been attacked, that your attack is justified in return, and that you are in no way responsible for it. Given these three wholly irrational premises, the equally irrational conclusion that a brother is worthy of attack rather than of love must follow. What can be expected from an insane premises except an insane conclusion? The way to undo an insane conclusion is to consider the sanity of the premise on which it rests. You cannot be attacked, attack has no justification, and you are responsible for what you believe.

 

Your resurrection is your reawakening. I am the model for rebirth, but rebirth itself is merely the dawning on your mind of what is already in it. God placed it there himself.

 

I am sorry when you my children do not share my decision to hear only one Voice. I elected, for your sake and mine, to demonstrate that the most outrageous assault, as judged by the ego, does not matter. As the world judges these things, but not as God knows them, I was betrayed, abandoned, beaten, torn, and finally killed. It was clear that this was only because of the projection of others onto me, since I had not harmed anyone and had healed many.

 

Your projection will always hurt you. It reinforces your belief in your own split mind, and its only purpose is to keep the separation going. It is solely a device of the ego to make you feel different from your brothers and separate from them. The ego justifies this on the grounds that it makes you seem “better” than they are, thus attack are inevitably related, because projection is always a means to justifying attack.

 

We have learned, however, that there is an alternative to projection. Every ability of the ego has a better use, because its abilities are directed by the mind, which has a better Voice. The Holy Spirit extends and the ego projects. As their goals are opposed, so is the result.

 

The Holy Spirit begins by perceiving you as perfect. Knowing this perfection is shared He recognizes it in others, thus strengthening it in both. Instead of anger this arouses love for both, because it establishes inclusion. Perceiving equality, the Holy Spirit perceives equal needs. This invites Atonement automatically, because Atonement is the one need in this world that is universal. To perceive yourself this way is the only way in which you can find happiness in the world. This is because it is the acknowledgement that you are not in this world, for the world is unhappy. Begin by relinquishing attack! Seek the Holy Spirit now to find peace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Truth about Energy Explained

 

All of life is a vibration. That which you call life (you could just as easily call it God) is pure energy. That energy is vibrating constantly, always, it is moving in waves. The waves vibrate at different speeds, producing differing degrees of density, or light. This, in turn, produces what you would call different “effects” in the physical world – actually, different physical objects. Yet while the objects are different and discreet, the energy which produces them is exactly the same.

 

An example: You use the air between your living room and dining room. It was a good use of imagery that just popped right out of you. An inspiration.

 

From guess where.

 

Yes, I gave it to you.  Now you said that there was no specific place between those two physical locations where the “air of the living room” stopped and the “air of the dining room” began. And that is true. Yet there is a place where the “air of the living room” become less dense. That is, it dissipates, become “thinner.” So, too, the “air in the dining room.” The further from the dining room you go, the less you smell dinner!

 

Now the air in the house is the same air. There is no “separate air in the dining room. Yet the air in the dining room sure seems as though it is different air. But it is not. It is all the same air seeming different. In the living room you smell the fireplace, in the dining room you smell the dinner. You might even go into one room and say, “Wes, it’s stuffy. Let’s get some air in here,” as if there was no air at all. And yet, of course, there’s plenty of air. What you are wanting to do is change its characteristics.

 

So you bring in some of the air from outside. Yet that is the same air, too. There is only one air, moving in, around, and through everything.

 

Like the air in your house, the energy of life – what we’ll call the “Soul of God” – takes on different characteristics as it surrounds different physical objects. Indeed, the energy coalesces in a particular way to form those objects.

 

As particles of energy join together to form physical matter, they become very concentrated. Mashed up. Pushed together. They begin to “look like,” even “feel like,” distinct units. That is, they begin to seem “separate,” “different.” From all the other energy. Yet this is all the same energy behaving differently which makes it possible for That Which Is All to manifest as That Which is Many.

 

Your scientists are already discovering that the building blocks of all of life are the same.

 

They brought back rocks from the moon and found the same stuff they find in trees. They take apart a tree and find the same stuff they find in you.

 

I tell you this: We are all the same stuff. The same energy, coalesend, compressed in different ways to crate different forms and different matter.

 

Nothing “matters” in and of itself. That is, nothing can become matter all by itself. Jesus Christ said, “Without the Father, I am nothing. “The Father of all is pure thought. This is the energy of life. This is what you have chosen to call Absolute Love. This is the God and the Goddess, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. It is the All-in-All, the Unmoved Mover, the Prime Source. It is that which you have sought to understand from the beginning of time. The Great Mystery, the Endless Enigma, the eternal truth.

 

NOTE; FROM MING: THIS MORNING I SENT YOU A HEALING PRAYER / MEDITATION. THIS WILL HELP YOU IN MANY WAYS. READ IT.

 

Gods Message continues:

 

“My dearest Children,

 

I Have always been in your hearts. I am only glad when you can actually feel Me there.

 

I Am always with you and We shall never be separated, ever, because that is not possible.

 

Some of you feel so terribly alone and feel you are fighting the battles all by yourselves.

 

That’s because you have left Me, My child. You have abandoned your awareness of Me. Yet, where there is awareness of Me, you shall never be alone.”

 

So often you said you are fighting a losing battle and you are fighting it all by yourself.

 

What is the battle?

 

(we may answer: It was a figure of speech.)

 

God continues: I think not. I believe it was a real indicator of how you – and so many people really think of life.

 

You have it in your head that it’s a “battle” – that there is some kind of struggle going on here.

 

(We may say: Well it feels that way to me sometimes.)

 

God continues: It is not that way inherently, and it doesn’t have to seem that way, ever.

 

(We may say here: You’ll forgive me, but that’s hard for me to believe.”

 

 

God continues:

 

Which is exactly why it hasn’t been your reality. For you will make real what you believe is real. Yet I tell you this: Your life was never meant to be a struggle, and doesn’t have to be, now or ever.

 

I have given you the tools with which to create the grandest reality. You have simply chosen not to use them. Or, to be more accurate, you have misused them.

 

The tools I am referring to here are the tools of creation. Do you know what they are?

 

(Some of us  may respond: Thought, word and action.

 

God continues:  Good. You were born with the creative powers of the universe at the tip of your tongue.

 

That is a statement of astonishing implications. As is this truth: “As thou believed, so be it done unto you.

 

Remember, “The beginning is God. Action is God creating – or experienced.

 

From Your Father, God.

An Oath of Betrayal


    Again Peter said that it was not true. A short time later,
    some people were standing near Peter. The people said, "We
    know you are one of those people that followed Jesus. You are
    from Galilee, the same as Jesus." Then Peter began to curse.
    He said strongly, "I promise to God that I don't know this
    man you are talking about!" After Peter said this, the
    rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered what
    Jesus told him: "Before the rooster crows twice, you will say
    three times that you don't know me." Then Peter was very sad
    and began to cry.

                            -- Mark 14:70-72 (ERV)


KEY THOUGHT:
Peter swore that he didn't know Jesus. Then he heard the rooster crow
and he realized the bitter truth. Not once ... not twice ... but three
times he denied his Lord. The third time he even cursed and used an
oath to deny Jesus. How could he have done it? How could he have
slipped so far? Only minutes earlier he had been willing to draw a
sword and take on the armed group that had come to arrest Jesus. Where
had his courage, his conviction, and his commitment gone? We must
realize that none of us is strong enough to guarantee we won't fail or
abandon our Lord at times. However, the test we face involves two
parts. The first part is the pressure to sin. If we yield to that
temptation and sin, the second is to have the courage to recognize it
as sin, be convicted to the core of our hearts of that sin, and to
change our hearts and behavior to return to our deeply held allegiance
to the Lord.


TODAY'S PRAYER:
O Father, give me courage. I want to demonstrate my allegiance to you,
your Son, and your Kingdom no matter what my outward circumstances and
pressures may bring. But, dear Father, if I fail and sin, please help
me to have the courage to recognize it, to be emotionally convicted by
it, and to be spiritually committed to come home and show that it was
an exception to a life lived wholly for you. In Jesus' name I pray.
Amen.

Thank You Benjamin Wyatt

 

The Holy Spirit offers you release from every problem that you think you have. They are the same to Him because each one regardless of the form it seems to take, is a demand that someone suffer loss and make a sacrifice that you might gain. And when the situation is worked out so no one loses is the problem gone, because it was an error in perception that now has been corrected. One mistake is not more difficult for Him to bring to truth than is another. For there is but one mistake; the whole idea that loss is possible, and could result in gain for anyone. If this were true, then God would be unfair; sin would be possible, attack be justified and vengeance fair.

This one mistake, in any form, has one correction. There is no loss; to think there is, is a mistake. You have no problems, though you think you have. And yet you could not think so if you saw them vanish one by one, without regard to size, complexity, or place and time, or any attribute which you perceive that makes each one seem different from the rest. Think not the limits you impose on what you see can limit God in any way.

The miracle of justice can correct all errors. Every problem is an error. It does injustice to the Son of God, and therefore is not true. The Holy Spirit does not evaluate injustice as great or small, or more or less. They have no properties to Him. They are mistakes from which the Son of God is suffering, but needlessly. And so He takes the thorns and nails away. He does not pause to judge whether the hurt be large or little. He makes but one judgment; that to hurt God’s Son must be unfair and therefore is not so.

You who believe it safe to give but some mistakes to be corrected while you keep others to yourself, remember this: Justice is total. There is no such thing as partial justice. If the Son of God is guilty then he is condemned, and he deserves no mercy from the God of justice. But ask not God to punish him because you find him guilty and would have him die. God offers you the means to see his innocence. Would it be fair to punish him because you will not look at what is there to see? Each time you keep a problem for yourself to solve, or judge that is one that has no resolution, you have made it great, and past the hope of healing. You deny the miracle that justice can be fair.

If God is just, then there can be no problems that justice cannot solve. But you believe that some injustice are fair and good, and necessary to preserve yourself. It is the problems that you think are great and cannot be resolved. For there are those you want to suffer loss, and no one whom you wish to be preserved from sacrifice entirely. Consider once again your special function. One is given to you to see his perfect sinlessness. And you will ask no sacrifice of him because you could not will he suffer loss. The miracle of justice you call forth will rest on you as surely as on him. Nor will the Holy Spirit be content until it is received by everyone. For what you give to Him is everyone’s, and by your giving it can He ensure that everyone receives it equally.

Think, then, how great your own release will be when you are willing to receive correction for all your problems. You will not keep one, for pain in any form you will not want. And you will see each little hurt resolved before the Holy Spirit’s gentle sight. For all of them are little in His sight, and worth no more than just a sigh before they disappear, to be forever undone and unremembered. What seemed once to be a special problem, a mistake without a remedy, or an affliction without a cure, has been transformed into a universal blessing. Sacrifice is gone. And in its place the Love of God can be remembered, and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss. God cannot be remembered until justice is loved instead of feared. He cannot be unjust to anyone or anything, because He knows that everything that is belongs to Him, and will forever be as He created it.

 For us repeat fourteen times each day the following:

“I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.”

“I trust my brothers, who are one with me.”

“No one but is my brother. I am blessed
With oneness with the universe and God.
My Father, one Creator of the whole
That is my Self, forever one with me.”

“I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.”

As I always teach each of you -- for every problem, we encounter to find true resolution by and through the Holy Spirit, we must always remember that “One must go within in prayer or one will go without blessing and resolution.” Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you as one.



The Reflection of Holiness

In this world you can become a spotless mirror, in which the holiness of your Creator shines forth from you to all around you. You can reflect Heaven here. You need but leave the mirror clean and clear of all the images of hidden darkness you have drawn upon it. God will shine upon it Himself. Only the clear reflection of Himself can be perceived upon it.

Reflections are seen in light. In darkness they are obscure, and their meaning seems to lie only in shifting interpretations, rather than in themselves. The reflection of God needs no interpretation. It is clear. Clean the mirror, and the message that shines forth from what the mirror holds out for everyone to see, no one can fail to understand. It is the message that the Holy Spirit is holding to the mirror that is in him. He recognizes it because he has been taught his need for it, but knows not where to look to find it. Let him, then, see it in you and share it with you.

Could you but realize for a single instant the power of healing that the reflection of God, shining in you, can bring to all the world, you would not wait to make the mirror of your mind clean to receive the image of holiness that heals the world. The image of holiness that shines in your mind is not obscure, and will not change. Its meaning to those who look upon it is not obscure, for everyone perceives it as the same. All bring their different problems to its healing light, and all their problems find but healing there.

The response of holiness to any form of error is always the same. There is no contradiction in what holiness calls forth. Its one response in healing, without regard for what is brought to it. Those who have learned to offer only healing, because of the reflection of holiness in them, are ready at last for Heaven. There, holiness is not a reflection, but rather the actual condition of what was but reflected to them here. God is no image, and His creations, as part of Him, hold Him in them in truth. They do not merely reflect truth, but they are truth.

What Happens After Life?

Many have asked, “What happens when we depart the body?”

Gods answer is:

There comes a time in the evolution of every soul when the chief concern is no longer the survival of the physical body, but the growth of the spirit; no longer the attainment of worldly success, but the realization of Self.

You are tri-part being, made of body, mind and spirit. You will always be a tri-part being, not just while you are living on the Earth.

There are those who hypothesize that upon death the body and the mind are dropped. The body and the mind are not dropped. The body changes form, leaving its most dense part behind, but retaining always its outer shell. The mind (not to be confused with the brain) goes with you, too, joined with the spirit and the body as the one energy mass of three dimensions, or facets.

Should you choose to return to this experiencing opportunity that you call life on Earth, your divine self will once again separate its true dimensions into what you call body, mind and spirit. In truth you are all one energy, yet with three distinct characteristics.

As you undertake to inhabit a new physical body here on Earth, your ethereal body (as some of you have termed it) lowers is vibrations – slows itself from a vibration so rapid that it cannot even be seen, to a speed that produces mass and matter. This actual matter is the creation of pure thought by God and Yourselves.

Remember, while in the body if you think thoughts of illness or disease (or continuing anger, hatred and negativity), your body will translate these thoughts into physical form. People will see this negative, sick form and they will say, “what’s the matter?” They will not know how accurate their question is.

The soul watches this whole drama played out, year after year, month after month, day after day, moment after moment, and always holds the Truth about you. It never forgets the blueprint; the original plan; the first idea; the creative thoughts. Its job is to remind you – that is to literally re-mind you – so that you may remember once again Who You Are – and then choose Who You now Wish to Be.

In this way the cycle of creation and experience, imaging and fulfilling, knowing and growing into the unknown, continues, both now and even forever more.

We may ask God: When you say that my mind goes with me after death, does that mean my “personality” goes with me? Will I know in the afterlife who I was?

God responds: Yes…and who you have ever been. It will all be opened unto you – because then it will profit you to know. Knowing now, does not always in this moment does it profit you to know.

We question: With regards to this life, will there be an “accounting – a review – a tally taking?

God answers: There is no judgment in what you call the afterlife. You will not even be allowed to judge yourself (for you would surely give yourself a low score, given how judgmental and unforgiving you are in yourself in this life.

Nonetheless, while there will be no judgment in the afterlife, there will be opportunity to look again at all you have thought, said, and done here, and to decide if that is what you would choose again, based on Who You say You Are, and Who You Want to Be.

We say: There is an Eastern mystical teaching surrounding a doctrine called Karma Loca – according to this teaching, at the time of our death each person is given the opportunity to relive every thought ever entertained, every word ever spoken, every acA Wonderful Sunday To You!


God is Saying to Us Today:

Many Form; One Correction

It is not difficult to understand the reasons why you do not ask the Holy Spirit to solve all problems for you. He has not greater difficulty in resolving some than others. Every problem is the same to Him, because each one is solved in just the same respect and through the same approach. The aspects that need solving do not change, whatever form the problem seems to take. A problem can appear in many forms, and it will do so while the problem lasts. It will recur and then recur again and yet again, until it has been answered for all time and will not rise again in any form. And only then are you truly released from it.

The Holy Spirit offers you release from every problem that you think you have. They are the same to Him because each one regardless of the form it seems to take, is a demand that someone suffer loss and make a sacrifice that you might gain. And when the situation is worked out so no one loses is the problem gone, because it was an error in perception that now has been corrected. One mistake is not more difficult for Him to bring to truth than is another. For there is but one mistake; the whole idea that loss is possible, and could result in gain for anyone. If this were true, then God would be unfair; sin would be possible, attack be justified and vengeance fair.

This one mistake, in any form, has one correction. There is no loss; to think there is, is a mistake. You have no problems, though you think you have. And yet you could not think so if you saw them vanish one by one, without regard to size, complexity, or place and time, or any attribute which you perceive that makes each one seem different from the rest.

PRAYER   Dear Father we thank you today for the work you are doing in our lives and in our nation.  We thank you Lord for exposing our sins and we repent today for the sins of greed and worship of money instead of you.  We know You are our provider.  We have been a blessed country because You have richly blessed us beyond all measure. We repent of the pride of self sufficiency and acknowledge that we are dependent upon You Lord for are daily needs.    Father we have made such a mess of the banking system that nobody knows how to fix it.  We ask for your guidance today.  Help our leaders look beyond themselves and their parties and do what is best for our country.  The problem Father is even if they want to do the right thing I don't think anybody can see how to rebuild what we've broken.   So order their steps Lord. Give them wisdom.    Expose all of the failures and sins to the light and let those who are responsible for this be dealt with justly. May those who were deceived by unscrupulous lenders  be restored.  May the consequences for this mess be shared fairly  so that those most responsible will share this burden and it won't be another burden thrust upon the taxpayers as the wealthy and greedy go free. We need the wisdom of Solomon to sort this out.    We need the wisdom that only comes from you.  So today we ask for our nation for wisdom and grace.  Lord let this not deteriorate into petty politics and bickering.  Father expose those who would seek to use this fiasco for political gain for who they are and expose their ploys.  Let the traps they set for others defeat them and every weapon they deploy backfire.   Thank you Father for hearing our prayers.  Thank you again for the assurance that even this situation is working together for our good because we love you and we are called according to your purpose. Father, we pray for physical healing for all those who needs it. We call for financial healing of our coutry and of each individual, we have prayed over those whom have sent in prayer requests and we ask you God to bring the miracles they seek into each their lives.   Thank you Father for hearing and answering our prayers.   In the precious name of Jesus Christ, Amen and Amen. 

 

The Totality of the Kingdom    

 

Whenever you deny a blessing to a brother you will feel deprived, because denial is as total as love. It is impossible to deny part of the Sonship as it is to love in part. Nor is it possible to love it totally at times. You cannot be totally committed sometimes. Denial has no power in itself, but you can give it power of your mind, whose power is without limit. If you use it to deny reality, reality is gone from you. Reality cannot be partly appreciated. That is why denying any part of it means you have lost the awareness of all of it. Yet denial is a defense, and so it is capable of being used positively as well as negatively.. Used negatively it will be destructive, because it will be used to attack.. But in the service of the Holy Spirit, it can help you recognize part of reality, and thus appreciate all of it. Mind in too powerful to be subject to exclusion. You will never be able to exclude yourself from your thoughts.

 

When a brother/sister acts insanely, he/she is offering you an opportunity to bless him/her. His/Her needs are yours. You need the blessing you can offer him/her. There is no way for you to have it except by giving it. This is the law of God, and there are no exceptions. What you deny you lack, not because it is lacking, but because you have denied it in another and are therefore not aware of it in yourself.. Every response you make is determined by what you think you are, and what you want to be is what you think you are. What you want to be then, then must determine every response you make.
