Because the creative cause of every experience comes from the spiritual side of life, it may be invisible, but it is strong and it is solid. If a decision in any area of our life, large or small, seems difficult, that’s only because we’re listening too closely to the world; we’re listening to our intellect, instead of listening to our inner core. Spirit always speaks from intelligence and feeling. But its most valuable characteristic is simplicity. Whenever we have a choice to make, the best answer is almost always the least complicated one. Love works and fear doesn’t. Honesty works and deceit doesn’t. Generosity works and greed doesn’t. Peace works and anger doesn’t. Joy works and apathy doesn’t. Always, always, always.

The Truth WILL set you free!  Living spiritually from your center can be liberating and exciting when you know the Truth.  Conversely, it can be confusing and frustrating if we don’t have a healthy understanding of what the Absolute Truth really is. While ignorance of the Truth does not exempt us from the effects of the your misunderstanding of it, misinterpretation of what we think we know as true can create undesirable effects in our life that cause us grief and pain.  Join me as I share some Truths that will give you more clarity about how to live more harmoniously and joyfully.

The healthiest and most constructive way for us to live, mentally and spiritually, is be to look at every single part of this thing we call Life as a miraculous occurrence. But the miracles we should be focusing on are not those spectacular events that seem to occur outside of nature; there aren’t too many of those anyway. Instead, the miracle that most deserves our attention is the creative process itself, the process that nature itself uses, day in and day out, to create the world we see. It’s the perfectly natural combination of intelligence and physical laws that creates amazing things like thunderstorms and butterflies, and flowers and trees, and the laughter of a child. These ordinary miracles constantly remind us that life is beautiful and abundant and precious, just as it is.

The real joy of being up in the driver’s seat is not about being in charge or in control. The real joy is in the freedom to choose, the freedom to change our mind, the freedom to be spontaneous. It’s in the opportunity to choose our own direction in life. There’s nothing wrong with doing things with other people. That’s part of what we’re here to learn. We’re here to learn how to share, and how to love, and how to live together with other people while we learn from one another. We don’t need to be in charge of other people to be successful, but we do need to be in charge of ourselves. Our desires are no more or less important than anyone else’s, but no one will ever be as interested in our growth and our spiritual path as we are, nor should they be. We’re all here to walk our own path while learning how to live together.

Our fears are not bad…they’re just unnecessary. We all fear the same things. We’re afraid of being alone and unloved. We’re afraid of being helpless and dependent. We’re afraid that God might not be listening to us. Those are the kinds of fears that contort and restrict our Inner World, which affects what we are able to create in the Physical World. It’s time we cleaned these beliefs out, and focused on the things we all want, because we do all want the same things. We all want to be loved, and we want people to share our love. We all want to feel that our life has meaning, and that what we are doing is worthwhile. We all want to feel connected, with Life, with each other and with God. That sense of Oneness is the one and only foundation upon which our Inner World should rest.

Along life's journey I've learned people wear disguises to mask their true selves. Masks are acceptable during Halloween and masquerade parties where pretending is part of the fun. But maybe it's not so much fun when disguises cause pain, deception or disastrous experiences.
You don't know what you're dealing with when masked or disguised individuals come along. It's like the tip of an iceberg, where you only see the surface; beneath the surface is where the essence of the individual lies.

It's better to live where there is no hiding place: no masks, no disguises, open and vulnerable, yet confident and courageous. We should always strive to live authentically, both personally and professionally, living in a manner where "what you see is what you get" and "our True Colors are always shining through!

When we think about the possibility of living forever, even at the spiritual level, some people are scared to death. Because to some people, life has always been a struggle. For them, every day is painful. They have to make hard decisions that hurt them or other people. It forces them to give up things they love, and it traps them into doing things they detest. So the idea of going through similar experiences for another ten or twenty million years or so does not appeal to them, and understandably so. For people with that kind of outlook on life, the best thing they can do, as spiritual beings, is to somehow learn how to enjoy the little piece of life they’re living right now.

We have to realize what we’re doing when we tell other people that we are powerless in our life, which is what we're really saying when we say we’re a victim. Most of the time we use our sad story to get sympathy from others, or we use it to be right or to prove that we’ve been wronged. That may feel good in the short term, but sympathy can create a very unhealthy attitude for both parties. Because what it does is to solidify the idea in both people’s minds that the problem is more powerful than any solution they could come up with.

Many people feel powerless to make real change in their lives, so they manipulate the outside world in an effort to get what they want.

Meditation, Imagination and Intuition are power tools from within that can improve your health, ease your stress, eliminate your fears and add to your abundance when properly cultivated. Using these 3 super powers is about understanding and aligning yourself with the natural principles that govern the workings of our universe and learning to use these principles in the most conscious and creative way. They are free, easy and in your possession. And, they work when you work them

If we help someone out of a sense of obligation or guilt, it’s better than not helping them at all, at least for them. But what does it do to us? If we feel like we’re being manipulated or coerced into doing something nice for someone, even if it’s very subtle, it’s going to negatively affect the way we see that person. Instead of seeing them as someone who could use a hand, and providing a hand simply because we have a hand to give, we’re going to end up seeing them as helpless, or as a victim of circumstances who needs us. That’s a very different level of interaction. It’s out of balance. That’s why the Buddhists use the term “loving kindness,” as if it were one word. Because love for other people and love of ourselves is the foundation for sharing our mutual strengths in order to balance out our temporary individual weaknesses.
