We create that bad among ourselves. We create it; then we try to call it devil, Satan, or evil. But man creates it. There is no devil. Man creates the devil.
– Wallace Black Elk, Lakota

Judgment and love are opposites. From one come all the sorrows of the world. But from the other comes the peace of God.
– from A Course in Miracles

There will come a time when images have all gone by, and you will see you know not what you are. It is to this unsealed and open mind that truth returns, unhindered and unbound. Where concepts of the Self have been laid by is truth revealed exactly as it is.
– from A Course in Miracles

“Perception begins to change and the beauty of creation literally shines forth from all persons and objects…There are moments when suddenly all is still and the experience of the quality of All That Is takes place within an all-encompassing Presence…In the stillness of the Infinite Presence, the mind is silent as there is nothing that can be said; all speaks for itself with completeness and exactitude.
– David R. Hawkins

There is great freedom in the realization that I have a body and a mind, rather than I am my mind or body. Once the fear of death is transcended, life becomes a transformed experience because that particular fear underlies all others. Few people know what it is to live without fear – by beyond fear lies joy, as the meaning and purpose of existence becomes transparent. Once this realization occurs, life becomes effortless and the sources of suffering dissolve; suffering is only the price we pay for our attachments.
– David R. Hawkins

You’re not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.
– Wayne Dyer

Be wary of work motivated by guilt or spiritual pride. Do not try to save yourself by helping others. Do not try to save others when it is you yourself who needs to be saved. First, put things right in your own mind. Learn to forgive the past and honor yourself here and now. Learn to trust your gifts. When you are fully expressing who you are joyfully, your work will naturally extend to those who will benefit from it or from your personal example. This is God’s work. It requires no marketing. It has an agenda of its own.
– Paul Ferrini, The Silence of the Heart

Don’t look outside of yourself for answers. Don’t seek refuge in the ideas, opinions and advice of other people. Don’t go into your head and try to figure things out. Surrender all of that, and seek the place where love begins, in your own heart. It is your responsibility to reconnect with the Source of love when you need to. No one else can do it for you.
– Paul Ferrini, Return to the Garden

You ask yourself, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
– Marianne Williamson, A Year of Daily Wisdom

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
– Marianne Williamson, A Year of Daily Wisdom

Sooner or later, most people become aware of a deeper longing in their souls to understand and experience a connection with something that transcends their individuality and community – call it nature, spirit, or God.
– David Simon

The Presence of God is your Presence.
The Knowingness of God is your Knowingness
for God’s Mind is your Mind.
Your Life is a Self-Expression of God.
Your Life is perfect for God is perfect.
You are the Expression of Love
for God is Love expressed as You.
You are the Creative Force of the Universe
expressed as a Human Being
in order to enjoy your Creative Abilities.
Your Life is your Creation.

WE ARE HERE TO DISCOVER WHO OR WHAT WE REALLY ARE

– Cookie Break

The Physical Universe is the Body of God.
This Body or Physical Manifestation
is the Mirror or Reflection of the Mind of God.
The Physical Universe changes and renews
its Planets… Stars and Galaxies in the same way
as our Body changes and renews its Cells and Organs.
Mind needs something different than itself
in order to reach Self Realization.
So… only because we are Man
is it possible to realize that we are God.
God and Man… are each other’s Reflection.

Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed.
– Michael Pritchard

Telling the future by looking at the past assumes that conditions remain constant. This is like driving a car by looking in the rear view mirror…
– Herb Brody

The sooner you let go of a situation that isn’t working, the sooner one that WILL can COME IN!
– Bashar

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
– Lucille Ball

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are, if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.
– Joseph Campbell

The true depth and breadth of the heart is measured not only by what it can hold, but also by how willing it is to let go.
– Guy Finley

The Persistence of Perception makes us believe
that all Things are as we see them.
The World in which we live… however
is made of very fast vibrating Energy Force Fields
that give us the Impression of Solidity.
All Things are our Thought Energies
vibrating with many different Frequencies.
Our World is the Physical Reality of our Mind.
The World is a Multi-Complex of Energy Vibrations
in which all Realities take place.
Why did you choose the Reality you are in ?

THIS IS THE ONE YOU ARE LEARNING TO MASTER

– Cookie Break

Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
– Michael Jordan

Your ego doesn’t reject love. It merely provides you with excuses for why you should be skeptical of your divineness. Your ego is exceedingly polite in this matter. The polite background ego voice whispers that love is a high ideal – but one that is loaded with danger. There is a good chance you will get hurt, so you should proceed cautiously. It warns you to not give hurt, so you should proceed cautiously. It warns you to not give too much love because you may be taken advantage of. Because you are so special, it tells you, others want to take advantage of you. All of these ideas keep you in a state of fear – not panic, just fear. A steady stream of anxiety about giving and receiving love is enough to keep you under the influence of ego.
– Wayne Dyer, Your Sacred Self

In Tibetan, the word for body is ‘lu’, which means ‘something you leave behind’, like baggage. Each time we say ‘lu’, it reminds us that we are only travelers, taking temporary refuge in this life and this body.
– Sogyal Rinpoche

Responsible choices have loving and caring in them; personality choices often don’t.
– John-Roger with Paul Kaye, What’s It Like Being You?

How to Love Yourself…

1. Stop all criticism:
Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When you approve of yourself, your changes are positive.

2. Don’t scare yourself:
Stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts. It’s a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you pleasure (mine is yellow roses), and immediately switch your scary thought to a pleasure thought.

3. Be gentle and kind and patient:
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved.

4. Be kind to your mind:
Self-hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don’t hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change the thoughts.

5. Praise yourself:
Criticism breaks the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.

6. Support yourself:
Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends, and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.

7. Be loving to your negatives:
Acknowledge that you created them to fulfill a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill those needs. So. lovingly release the old negative patterns.

8. Take care of your body:
Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about exercise. What kind of exercise can you enjoy? Cherish and revere the temple you live in.

9. Mirror work:
Look into your own eyes often. Express this growing sense of love you have for yourself. Forgive yourself looking into the mirror. Talk to your parents looking into the mirror. Forgive them, too. At least once a day, say: “I love you, I really love you!”

10. LOVE YOURSELF – DO IT NOW!
Don’t wait until you get well or lose the weight, or get the new job, or find the new relationship. Begin NOW – do the best you can.
