Be Yourself

Everyone has experienced what he would call a sense of being transported beyond himself.  It is a sense of actual escape from limitations.  “Transportation” entails a sudden unawareness of the body and a joining of yourself and something else in which your mind enlarges to encompass it.  It becomes a part of you as you unite with it.  And both become whole as neither is perceived as separate.

What really happens is that you have given up the illusion of a limited awareness and lost your fear of union.  The love that instantly replaces it extends to what has freed you and unites with it.  And while this lasts, you are not uncertain of your identity and would not limit it.  You have escaped from fear to peace, asking no questions of reality but merely accepting it.  You have accepted this instead of the body and have let yourself be one with something beyond it simply by not letting your mind be limited by it.

This can occur regardless of the physical distance which seems to be between you and what you join.  Time is not relevant; it can occur with something past present, or anticipated.  You joined it without reservation because you love it and would be with it.  And so you rush to meet it, letting your limits melt away, suspending all the “laws” your body obeys and gently setting them aside.

There is no violence at all in this escape.  In these instants of release from physical restrictions, you experience peace and joy, the lack of awareness of the body, and the questioning whether or not all this is possible.

It is possible because you want it.  The sudden expansion of the self which takes place with your desire for it is the irresistible appeal the holy instant (awakening) holds.  It calls to you to be yourself within its safe embrace.  Come to this place of refuge where you can be yourself in peace.

A Healthy Mind

Health is not of the body.  To be healthy is to have a healthy mind.  The mind of God created life.  God's mind is infinite yet unchanging.  Man identifies himself with the condition of his body.  The body is finite and cannot experience God.  Only the mind can be used to gain knowledge of God.  
This is how the Holy Spirit communicates. 

The ego sees a division in Creation. The ego tries desperately to protect it's existence.  It is in a constant state of fear.  It is fighting for it's survival. It fears death.  

God's creation is whole, created in His likeness. To see yourself deprived of His goodness in not clear seeing.  The ego is insane and unreal.  The mind of man created the ego, not God.  God is all love and joy.  Any pain man experiences is because he does not see himself whole.  By directing your attention inwards you can gain access to the mind of God.  Your wholeness is your divinity. And when you merge with it the illusion of the ego falls away.

The Best Thing In You

Break out of your shell.  The world desperately needs your art!  All the suffering your harbour has served you on your path.  Anchor yourself in the present, and the best thing in you will come forth from your suffering.

Totally Other

Society connects to social media, hi-tech devices, and virtual reality as a way to connect with others.  Today's world is consumed by the trickiest hi-tech gadgets and the fastest downloads.  Noise from all these worldly things only distract us from our purpose.  
We are a know-it-all society and instant pleasures are a download away.  What the eyes see, man can not resist.  We think we are in touch with reality, but we are out of sync with the sacred. Sacredness is totally other than the pleasures of this world.

Links To My Presence

Come to Me with empty hands and an open heart, ready to receive abundant blessings.  I know the depth and breadth of your neediness.  Your life-path has been difficult, draining you of strength.  Come to Me for nurture.  Let me fill you up with My Presence: I in you, and you in Me.
My Power flows most freely into weak ones aware of their need for Me.  Faltering steps of dependence are not a lack of faith; they are links to My Presence.
