A brief repose

Due to life and all that it can bring at times, I will be away from my blog for a bit. Hopefully I'll post a thought here or there in the next couple of weeks , but nothing daily for a bit. I'll miss your sweet thoughts while I'm away but look forward to getting back in touch soon.

quiet time

Find time every day to be in a quiet space with God. It can be anywhere including outside. Spending even just a few minutes each day gives you enough experience with God to be able to call on his calming spirit at any time.

Choose peace

A line in A Course In Miracles states, "I can choose peace, rather than this." What a simple statement. Let this be what comes into your mind any time you are in a situation that causes unrest. It won't change what happened but it will put you in a frame of mind that will handle it in a peaceful manner.

an agent of God

Choosing peace instead of unrest allows us to become agents of God. It's a call to action instead of being a way to just wallow in self-pity as to why uncomfortable things are happening to us.
We need to remember that peace and God are one. It is only our thoughts that can give us the illusion that we are separated from God for we never really are.

button pushers

The people who push our buttons the most are the best teachers we have. They show us exactly where we need to do the most work in the arena of being instruments of peace.

who is in control?

When we are faced with a stressful situation or confrontation we need to take a breath and repeat this part of the prayer in our mind "Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace". If it is peace we desire, it is peace we must be.

inner peace

Even when there are forces around us that are negative we can keep our inner peace. We can ask that our center of peace be protected from negative speaking, or things that might happen around us. This way we also remain peaceful and spread a feeling of peace.

thy peace

"Thy peace" is the peace of God. This is the key to spiritual solutions. Having God's peace. Sharing God's peace. Exemplifying God's peace.

saint francis

The rest of the book is focused on the famous prayer by St Francis of Assisi. Lets refresh our memories of it.

Lord, make me and instrument of thy peace
Where there is hatred, let me so love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.

slowing down

Easy words today. Slow down in order to feel the higher vibrations. Put away being flustered and impatient. Unless it's life threatening, you have time to wait.

"Be still and know that I am God"
Holy Bible

nobility is about personal progression

We measure our spiritual growth by how much better we are now than we used to be, not by how much better we are than someone else. We all have the ability to grow and we all have something to teach each other. For spiritual growth we want to teach of things like love, peace, and forgiveness. These are eternal. Put ego aside that wants to teach winning, being right, strong and at the top of the heap.
Spirit over ego. Caring for others over getting ahead.

"When you judge another person you do not define them. You merely define yourself as someone who needs to judge."

Wayne W. Dyer

don't fight your problems

Today's reading took some thought. We must not resist evil. If we push against it, it validates it. It gives it power and goes against the knowledge of there only being one power, good. Wayne says "... bring the spirit of God to all perceived evil and that alone will transform it into good".
When we fight against things it creates a counter force. Gives credence to that which we don't want. The focus needs to remain on the desired outcome and that will disintegrate the problem. We need to always work within the power of good and it will bring light to our lives. "the very presence of light nullifies all the darkness".

Conclusion: use the only one power. God that is good.

no lack in God's law

There is no lack in God's law. He offers us all that he has. He tells us that all things are possible. We need to have the confidence to move forward toward what we want to accomplish and do so with the understanding that God will help it to unfold as we move through it. It is that simple. What more do we want God to do?

Friday, June 12, 2009

harmony is natural

God is always good. Mind is good and evil. Mind- as the captain controls body- which is the boat. Mind engaged stays connected to God. Mind as idyll will be subjected to the possibility of falling into evil. Since we are connected to god by spirit our natural state is with him and therefor harmonious. At this conscious level we have no limitations. We will be able to manage life. We will find our divinity and realize the ability to remove illusion from our lives.

God undivided

Because of God's nature he cannot be good and evil. He isn't there one day and gone the next. He is always good and always there. I feel like I'm just repeating myself but we are the one's that get in the way.
Good is created by God. Evil or bad is created by mortal beings separating ourselves from God putting ourselves in Satan's influence.

being spirit

Today is to the point. We walk around hoping to be more spiritual human beings. We say things to ourselves like "I wish I felt more spiritual" or if we are feeling very spiritual we might say "Well I'm certainly more spiritual than that person". This is our ego talking.
It's not about feeling spiritual. We are spirit. Period. We may reside within a mortal body and have feelings, but it doesn't matter if we feel it or not. We are spiritual because we are spirits at our center. All we need to do is keep this in our awareness and be who we are.

tapping into power

Today's reading puts forth the idea that God's power doesn't come over us, but rather it is the only power in the universe and we need to tap into it. And that evil occurs when we are not tapped in. That if we can grab hold of this concept then we will always want to tap in so we will not be part of creating evil around us.
Of course unless everyone in the world is tapped in, we will always deal with evil things. There will be less evil though if those of us who realize this will get up every morning and make a commitment to be dialed into to God energy. Just think if everyday just one more person dialed in. And then one more and one more. Pretty soon the high frequency energy would raise greatly and evil would start to diminish.
My own personal belief is that the the evil comes from Satan. But I agree that Satan only has power if we hand it over to him. I believe that if we are connected to God and his power that Satan is powerless and only one power can exist.

Thursday, June 4, 2009


Today's reading is short and sweet. God doesn't punish. It is our lack of connection that brings about unwanted or evil things. God doesn't do it to us, we bring it on ourselves.
My personal take on this is when we shut ourselves off from God, Satan has a hay day. We leave ourselves open to his influence and the influence of our own ego.
Bad combination!

a willing God

Today we need to know that God is always there, willing to support and send us what we need if we will just tap into him. The stronger we will connect the stronger we will become. It's that simple. God wants for us to have all that he has. He is there waiting.
I have to wonder sometimes if God feels frustration the same way we do. I know how hard it is to watch my own children making choices that take them away from the divine and struggle so. It is so hard for me to watch and I get frustrated that they just don't, or don't want to see it for themselves. Can you imagine having a whole world full of children and seeing them stray daily? Almost too much to comprehend.
One caution. God always being there doesn't mean we never taste of things that are hard or live forever because we keep asking and taping in. It means that we can have the ability to keep ourselves as spiritually strong as possible and feel blessed at all times. Even in hardship if we will find the all important growth it will bring lives.


Just wanted to take a moment to say welcome and thank you to those who leave comments on my blog. It helps me to condense and write about what I'm reading so I can better put it into practice. Your comments also help me to know of truth. Thank you for coming along for the ride.

love and prayer

Today's reading is one I spend a lot of personal time with. Instead of getting caught in the vicious claws of low energy feelings like hate, and anger towards those who hurt or annoy us in some way, we need to learn to love and pray for them.
We have all had a time when someone directs something negative at us and we have the choice to choose kindness or unkindness. You will find remarkable outcomes if you can respond with love and prayers for these people.
In the morning when I have my morning prayers I pray for all those in the world who are suffering. That they might feel Gods love for them. I also pray for all those who are doing evil that they too will feel Gods love through another person so they will hunger after it and have a softening of their hearts to be able to turn away from their evil doing. How else will they ever have a desire to do good if they are not feeling the love of those around them? I would rather pray to keep someone here on earth as a changed individual than pray that they die just because it is easier to get them out of the way.
Choose love and prayer.

mortal, make room for spiritual

Today's reading is about making a choice to stop trying to solve your problems with just your mortal self. Why struggle along alone when you can stop and tap into the divine at anytime? When you yield your mortal self over to the divine, the field of energy is increased and you make room for spirit.
Wayne relates a story about a woman who is diagnosed with cancer and given only a few months to live. She tells no one and takes herself to the woods of northern Minnesota. There she disconnects from the cancer and connects to the divine. She never goes back to the doctors and is still alive 9 years later.
This connection can be this powerful.

substance of all matter is mind

Every part of your body has an energy vibration but not intelligence. Your mind is intelligence and directs the body. Every organ clear down to your cells is created to respond to the divine intelligence that resides within it. The mind controls the whole body that was created by God. Your can direct it with you mind to do God's work.
All things are experienced in your mind. When you see yourself in God's mind you can raise yourself to God's energy field and draw from that energy. The ego is the one who directs the illusion that we are separate from God. We are not. We can draw from God's energy fields at all times. This unifying force is part of the whole universe. All matter, living or not. Keep directing your mind to be in harmony with the divine. When problems arise remember that the intelligence of your mind is attached to God's intelligence and work off of that energy.

spirit awareness

Todays reading was about practicing being aware of the spirit in our lives. How to invite this awareness by pondering it's presence around us at all times if we will just bring ourselves to it. Dr. Dyer suggests that when we are in the middle of feeling anxious, out of sorts or afraid, we should stop and ask to feel the spirit of our creator around us. It lies at the center of all things. Even those things that are physical like the building you are in. Did it not start with the mind of the individual who envisioned it? Is that mind not connected to the spiritual being of the person it belongs to? Was it not built by other people who are spiritual beings?
Everything around us resonates with spirit so when you are having a negative experience you can just take a moment to ponder the fact that you are surrounded by the spirit of the creator. Energy that is all loving, all knowing. Draw on that spirit. Bring it to your own awareness. Raise your own energy vibration with this knowledge.

For those of you that want to follow this blog I think I have it fixed. Please try again and let me know if you have an more problems. Thanks for your interest.


Today we switch gears a bit and talk about our potential. We look in the mirror and see a human being with flaws and limitations. We see what is there instead of looking for what is potentailly there. When we can see beyond the human form in front of us then we will be able to move to places we only dreamed of before.
I suggest that you start to see the spiritual being behind and in the center of your human form. It is there that you can truly progress and become the limitless being you really are. It is in the sight of eternal progression and inviting the spirit of the eternal creator to dwell within us that gives us our wings.
Look in the mirror again. This time envision the loving, spiritual being you want to be. Now connect to your creator and become that person. One step at a time. One day at a time. It's an eternal journey.

energy mind field

Today's reading is about the energy of our mind and our thoughts. When you start to pay attention to the thoughts that are roaming around in your head it can be a bit astonishing. We can be riddled with more negative thoughts than we realize. As with the way we act and speak affects others so do our thoughts. It is amazing how much things change when we get a handle on the commentary that takes place in our heads.
I started paying attention to this a few months ago when I realized that my mind chatter was getting out of hand. I had a thought comment on everything that was going on around me. Thought s an peoples driving skills or what someone else was talking about. Thoughts on peoples appearance or choice of landscaping. It's fine when the thought is complementary but when it is a criticism it does no good for me or them. What makes me superior? If I must have a thought if someone is driving badly then I have tried to change it to a prayer for every one's safety and that the person driving is all right. This way I'm offering support instead of just having a negative opinion.
How is the energy in your mind field today?

8 Beautiful Points

Mother Theresa has written eight beautiful ways to both forgive and contribute to create lovely energy. For today I will simply list them and let you soak them in. Enjoy!

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight. Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is all between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.

- Mother Theresa of Calcutta

Love energy

Todays reading is about love energy. Just a s fear can permeate a space so can love. There is nothing better than walking into a space that has been infused with love. The examples that Wanye Dyer uses in the book are two wonderful places, the chapel in Assisi, Italy where St Francis prayed every day and Machu Picchu, Peru. Both of these places can create such a feeling of peace and well being when you are in this space.
I have never had the priviledge to be in either of these places but I have had small experiences of walking through a space and feeling very peaceful. Most often it is unexpected and therefore a true gift.
The lesson here is that if we have spaces and places in our lives that seem to be full of negative or fear energy there is something we can do about it. We can start to change that space with our own energy. Our good and loving energy can change the space which in turn will effect the people that come into our space causing them to feel it and be able to use their own good and loving energy as well. IN no time the whole atmosphere can change around. What an uplifting thought.

Fear Energy

Todays reading is about the energy transmitted through fear. Fear has a way of hanging around in the air and permeating the things around it. You experience this any time you go to a place where awful things have happened. I have experienced this twice in my life. The first time it happened was when I was at Dachau in Germany. I was 17 years old and the air around me in that place was dark and heavy. I actually felt like something had sunk into my body and was weighing me down as I walked through the camp. It was difficult for me and I didn't know at the time how to handle it. It took me a long while to shake it off of me.
The second time I experiences this was at the age of 42 in the tower or spire of the Salisbury Cathedral in England. As I was climbing the spiral staircase I was suddenly overcome with grief. A grief that I had never experienced before. It was so strong that I could go no further. I actually had to descend and could proceed no further. I wept and wept uncontrollably. Something terrible must have happened in that space.
It's very interesting for me to think about these things. It brings home the importance of keeping our own energy light and of a positive influence.

surrounding energy

Today's readings were on personal energy field and surrounding energy field. This is something that is so tangible if you pay attention. There are times when someone or a situation around us becomes negative or upsetting and the entire energy field around us becomes polluted. You can feel and almost taste it. It can become so thick in the air. When this happens it's important to pay attention to what is happening in your own body. To take your own internal pulse and make sure you are staying calm by slow steady breathing and relaxing your muscles. Remove yourself from the situation as quickly as possible and try to avoid these kinds of situations as much as possible.

We also need to remember how much we affect the energy around us and other peoples energy as well. It is our responsibility to keep a positive energy about us by having a countenance of love and respect . We can't get upset about the negative energies around us if we are not being the most that we can be to make sure the energy field is clean and clear.

Thanks for your comment "I am alive". It was nice to have you stop by. I have not seen this movie yet but it is on my list. (the list is very long and not enough hours in the day)

Energy Field

Today's reading was about both our individual energy space and our collective energy. Energy is a two way street. The energy of others effects us but our energy also effects others. It's important to be aware of how other peoples energy is effecting us but we have a larger responsibility to make sure that the energy we are sharing is one of a positive nature.

Be the change you want to see.

Other People's expectations

Don't get overwhelmed by other peoples expectations of what you should be doing. Your live is your own to do the things that bring joy and worth to you and your living. Choose things that are good and have meaning and those around you will see it's worth and feel the good. How can they not support that?

Live a great life with gusto and meaning!

Personal History

We all have a personal history. The important thing to remember is that no matter what has happened to us in the past, it has brought us to where we are and given us the experience we need to move forward. Some of us blame our past for holding us back in the present. Don't get stuch in this kind of cycle. embrace you past and love it rather than curse it. It has made you the person you are today. Now let it go and live today in the space of today with your eye pointed toward the future.

No matter what it was, your history is important!

boat wake

Today's reading was comparing our lives to a boat and it's wake. The wake is what is left following the boat but it doesn't drive the boat. So our past shouldn't drive our lives. We can learn from our past but should always be driven by what we want to create for our future.

Focus on the the things you really want in your life and move forward toward that goal in whatever manner you can today. Even if that step is very small it will still give you motion toward what you want to see happen.

Happy forward movement!

wow, it's been a really long time

I actually forgot I created this blog. How sad is that. I want to share the things that I am reading and my thoughts about them. I always have two books going at the same time. One for sheer pleasure and one to feed my soul. The books I want to talk about here are my soul books. Right now I'm reading "There's A Spiritual Solution To Every Problem" by Wayne Dyer. I've read several of his books and always enjoy them. I needed a boost in this department and I must say that my spirit has been lifted back in place. It is a blessing.

The topic of the section I'm reading now is about avoiding what you don't want. It helps me to keep fresh in my mind the work I need to do with my thoughts and beliefs. I get lazy about it when I stay away from the works that feed my soul.

I hope you (if there are any readers out there) are remembering to feed your soul with nourishing works of writing.
