Nurturing

2022-05-17T18:20:35-04:00October 31st, 2016|

When a little child is tired or not feeling quite well, what do you do?  You find her a cozy spot on the couch or in her bed and you lovingly tuck a soft blanket around her.  You stroke her hair and speak soothing words softly in her ear.  You [...]

In the Beginning

2016-10-30T07:02:44-04:00October 30th, 2016|

Start at the beginning.  Who are you?  Not a newborn baby.  We are going farther back than that.  Not a past life, and oh, yes, you do have those.  We are going back before the beginning of time.  Time occurs here in your earthly realm.  We are asking you to [...]

Up, Up, and Away

2016-10-29T06:11:33-04:00October 29th, 2016|

Picture a hot air balloon lifting into the sky.  Does it not fill you with wonder?  You stop and point and exclaim, even though man mastered the art of flying via machinery years ago.  What is it about balloons that is so magical to you?  They are big, beautiful, and [...]

Every One Alike

2016-10-28T06:58:58-04:00October 28th, 2016|

Snowflakes … each one of them is different.  This you learned in school.  You study the designs and you exclaim in wonder, “It is true!” but you are focusing on the outer form only, are you not?  And what of the inner make-up, the underlying aspects that give the snowflake [...]

Words

2016-10-27T07:21:47-04:00October 27th, 2016|

Do you ever wish to put your fingers in your ears when you know you are about to hear words you do not wish to hear?  Do you wish to cover or avert your eyes when words contrary to what you wish to read appear in your inbox or newspaper?  [...]

2016-10-26T07:02:30-04:00October 26th, 2016|

“Do I make a difference?” you ask, and the answer is yes.  By being present, you bring a vibration to each situation.  The question is, do you make a positive difference?  Does your presence bring healing, hope, assurance, peace, love?  Do you see how you can do this on a [...]

Treasure

2016-10-24T07:12:51-04:00October 24th, 2016|

You have been differentiating between human and soul in response to our teaching and your own awareness.  Two sides of one coin, as you understand it.  One side can experience pain or pleasure and every other emotion you can imagine.  The other, the soul, simply is.  Is what?  Love.  We [...]

Borrowed

2016-10-23T07:20:48-04:00October 23rd, 2016|

When you borrow a thing, you believe it belongs to the other, and you wish to have use of it.  Do you know that you really do not own anything?  And this is the source of many challenges.  There is only One Mind experiencing Itself.  Therefore, all are creations of [...]

Uncluttered

2016-10-22T06:37:01-04:00October 22nd, 2016|

Pay attention to how you feel. The soul is soft with no edges. It is spacious … so vast that it contains everything that is. The soul is patience, peace, allowing. Have a feel around the inside of you right now. Can you feel that spaciousness, that expansiveness filled with [...]

Opportunities

2016-10-21T07:15:45-04:00October 21st, 2016|

Desperation … it is the human who feels this clawing, urgent, fear-filled emotion.  The soul knows only peace.  If you are feeling that feet-to-the-fire-“I must do something” feeling, then you are out of balance.  Peace lies always within, and when you can breathe just enough to remember this, then you [...]

Still Life

2016-10-20T06:47:42-04:00October 20th, 2016|

“Is (s)he still breathing?” you ask, watching the chest rise and fall, and this you take as a sign of life.  It is a sign that the physical body is functioning, indeed—that the Life Force continues to animate the body—but the Life Force continues with or without the body. What [...]

In the Pauses

2016-10-19T07:56:27-04:00October 19th, 2016|

Why is a thing beneath you? Because you put it there. What if things that happened to you Gave you little care? The things that happen in your life Are there to give you pause -- To see what each effect Arises from each cause. They call it learning, how [...]

Expectations

2016-10-18T06:45:40-04:00October 18th, 2016|

Expect the best.  How often do you do this, especially in your relationships?  You become accustomed to others’ behaviors.  Those that rankle are often the ones you focus upon, wishing they would change.  So focused are you on what to you are felt as lower vibrations that you come to [...]

Perspective

2016-10-17T08:17:02-04:00October 17th, 2016|

So many viewpoints. So many clashing at this time. Oh, if you could release the grip you have on your viewpoint being right and the others’ being wrong, so much more peaceful would you be. Can you simply allow? Yes, discuss your position, but unclench the jaw, can you? You [...]

Rays

2016-10-16T08:02:43-04:00October 16th, 2016|

When you doubt if you can or will accomplish a thing, study your thoughts.  Your intentions carry far more importance than you may know.  What is your motive?  If it is to serve, to help, to heal, then set the highest intention and hold fast to it as you send [...]

Searching

2016-10-15T07:09:06-04:00October 15th, 2016|

“What was that name?”  “Where did I put that thing?”  Have you not had those moments?  Try as you might, the answers elude you.  And that is the problem:  you are trying, which puts you in the head.  Do you not realize that memories, names and such are not stored [...]

Surfing

2016-10-11T07:37:03-04:00October 11th, 2016|

Oh, that pang of fear when you know you have done something wrong.  Right away, by our using the word “wrong,” you know we refer to human perceptions.  For the soul there are only “learning opportunities.”  That oh so uncomfortable feeling that makes you want to run and hide and [...]

Guided Creation

2016-10-10T07:46:11-04:00October 10th, 2016|

You never know what you are capable of.  Most humans would complete this sentence with the words “until you try,” but we urge you to complete it with “until you allow yourself to be guided and simply do what you feel in your heart you are being led to do.”  [...]

Bumps

2016-10-09T10:48:15-04:00October 9th, 2016|

Just when you think you are doing fine and all is well, something comes along to knock you off balance.  Trust us that all is in perfect order always, but the peace you felt is forgotten for a moment.  But wait … it is still there.  This is just a [...]

Justifying

2016-10-08T07:24:10-04:00October 8th, 2016|

Why do you feel the need to justify things, to explain yourself?  Could it be, yet again, so that people approve of you?  Could it be so that others do not judge you?  What if you do not explain your actions or words?  What was your motive in doing or [...]

Team Player

2016-10-07T07:04:34-04:00October 7th, 2016|

What does it mean to be a team player?  It means you care more about the whole than any one individual, most especially the self.  Does this mean you must be self-sacrificing to be a team player?  There are no musts or shoulds, merely the question, “what will best serve [...]

Upstream

2016-10-06T06:34:31-04:00October 6th, 2016|

Salmon swim upstream, going against the flow, which appears to be the opposite of what we are always advising.  Yes, in most cases, it behooves you to flow and allow others to flow.  But what are the salmon doing?  They are following their deepest inner guidance.  They are exerting effort, [...]

Flowing

2016-10-04T07:56:22-04:00October 4th, 2016|

When you feel frustrated with another, when you feel anger and judgement, you are causing toxic blockages within yourself.  Why do these blockages occur?  For you are not allowing Life to flow as it will.  You are saying, in effect, “What I am witnessing is not right.  It should not [...]
