The most important part of prayer is what we feel, not what we say. We
spend a great deal of time telling God what we think should be done,
and not enough time waiting in the stillness for God to tell us what to

Attachment to being right creates suffering. When you have a choice to
be right or to be kind, choose kindness, and watch your suffering
Wayne Dyer, Everyday Wisdom
There is a distance between believing the Truth and embodying that
Truth. We may know that we are children of God with divine capacities,
but until we act on that belief, it remains a foggy awareness. Using
spiritual practices moves us from believing in God to becoming aware of
the reality of God moving in and through us.
– Mary Manin Morrissey
Some people fear that trusting their intuition will lead them to do
things that are purely selfish, irresponsible, or hurtful to others. In
reality, the opposite is true. Since intuition is connected to our
souls and to the universal intelligence, it is always guiding us to our
own highest good and the greater good for all concerned.
When we follow our intuition, we sometimes behave in new and different
ways, and others may sometimes be temporarily disappointed or upset.
For example, if you are a very giving person who has always tried to
please and care for others, your intuition may push you to learn to say
“no” when you really don’t want to do something, and to set better
boundaries with people. At first, this might upset someone. In the long
run, however, you and everyone else you relate to will be healthier and
happier because of this change.

Release all judgment from your manifestation practice. The universal
law is not a dual energy. It does not operate on the same dualism that
works here on the earth plane. It does not discriminate or work on a
good/bad, right/wrong basis. There is just one energy that permeates
all things, and everything is a part of that power.
– Wayne Dyer, Manifest Your Destiny
Know the connection between manifesting your heart’s desire and
unconditional love. Unconditional love is the energy of the universe,
it is what God is, and, therefore, what you are as well. Without your
connection to this love, you lose your connection to the creative
process. You cannot attract to yourself that which you are already
connected to if you have short-circuited the connection. The presence
of unconditional love is in all things that your wish to attract as
well as in you. Keep it honestly, and you keep your ability to “know
that ye are a god.” Lose it, and you lose your godliness. It is that

Scarcity is an important teacher. Every perception of lack in your
surroundings mirrors an inner feeling of unworthiness that must be
brought into conscious awareness. The experience of scarcity is not God
punishing you. It is you showing yourself a belief that needs to be

Forgiveness remains the only path that leads out of hell. Whether we’re
forgiving our parents, someone else, or ourselves, the laws of mind
remain the same: As we love, we shall be released from pain, and as we
deny love, we shall remain in pain.
– Marianne Williamson
You reshape the world by reshaping yourself. The question is not how to change others, but how to change yourself.
– Gary Zukav & Linda Francis, The Heart of the Soul
When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I
am in the heart of God.” And think not you can direct the course of
love, for love directs your course.
– Kahlil Gibran
Souls don’t have races or sexes or religions. They are beyond artificial divisions.

GRANDFATHER’S PRAYER FOR TODAY.
My Creator, help me find time today to be quiet and listen to voice within me, knowing also it is you talking to me.
When we recognize… Who or What we really are
and thus know who our Brothers and Sisters are
we will realize
that judging Anybody in any way
is absolutely without Meaning.
For in the Presence of Knowledge
all Judgement is completely eliminated.
The Presence of Knowledge… enables
Recognition to replace Perception.
Complete Recognition of Who or What we really are
is Absolutely Astounding.
WE ALL ARE THE INFINITE SELF IN DIFFERENT ROLES
Why on earth do you think we’re allowed so many mistakes?
Because God loves us.
Why do you allow your children so many mistakes? You knew they had to
make them. Why did you show them how to do it better? Because you knew
how to correct their mistakes so they didn’t have to do it over and
If you do that to your children, then would not God do that to us? He
does do it to us. We’re allowed the choices of mistakes until hell
won’t have it. And since hell won’t have it, heaven will.
– John-Roger, from “God Is” (article)
Dear ones, whatever or whoever you perceive the divine power that rules
the Universe to be, your perceptions are often flawed. You generally
ascribe to this divine power (let’s call it God to simplify our
conversation) qualities and characteristics that are–we think your term
is–anthropomorphic. That is, you view non-human beings as having human
traits. And that simply is not the case.
In the matter we’re discussing today, the view of most humans (at least
those who believe in God or a god) is God is on our side and against
our enemies. Therefore, you pray to him/her/it for victory to you and
defeat to your enemy.
Can you see how flawed such an attitude is? If God created all that is,
if God is all that is, then how can God take up your cause and rail
against your enemy’s cause? It ain’t gonna happen, dear ones! God does
not take sides.
In fact, it’s impossible for God to take sides. How could he/she/it–who
is, after all, ALL that is–partition itself and favor one part over
another? That is utterly impossible. And that view is utterly human.
The only way a human could pray to God for victory in battle (which
obviously means defeat for the other side) is because he/she has a
limited, anthropomorphic, and just plain distorted, idea of what God
When it comes to war, God doesn’t care who wins, who loses. Those are human struggles and God takes no part in them.
What God does do, however, is to allow all humans to play their game,
whether the game be making love or making war. Games are supposed to be
fun. However, and we don’t need to remind you of this, your games are
often anything but fun for you. And that’s okay with God.
God loves you all unconditionally and eternally. You are loved. Period. And “you” means all of you–you and your enemy.
God loves you so very much he/she/it is willing to allow you total
freedom to play out your life game any way you choose. You are all free
to create whatever reality you want. But you will not get it done in
this lifetime, or in any other. In fact, you will never finish creating
You are eternal beings of light. Growth is your game. You’re destined
to play the game forever. And God doesn’t care how you play it. That’s
because you are God. And you get to do it your way.
No matter how terrible or tragic any event appears from your human
perspective, it’s all part of the game. And in the “end,” you all win
when you remember who you are. When you remember you’re creating the
world you’re experiencing, because you are God, every one of you.
And you’ll all make it Home–you and your enemy. You are your enemy. Your enemy is you.
– Chief Joseph
