What a trickster time is!

“For what is time without a past and future?  It has taken time to misguide you so completely, but

it takes no time at all to be what you are. Begin to practice the Holy Spirit’s use of time as a

teaching aid to happiness and peace.  Take this very instant, now, and think of it as all there is of

time.  Nothing can reach you here out of the past, and it is here that you are completely absolved,

completely free and wholly without condemnation.  From this holy instant wherein holiness was

born again you will go forth in time without fear and with no sense of change with time.” 

The above quote is from A Course In Miracles, Chapter 15. The Holy Instant, Section I. The Two Uses of Time, p.9. 2-7.

And what are you?  The ego is a trickster, it uses time to age us (we think we are bodies); heap regrets and guilt; plant the seeds of self doubt and or grandiosity; keep us in fear of the future by reminding us of the dreaded past and we are suffocated by grievances we have promised never to overlook or forgive.  The ego doesn’t know what you are!

But to know who you are, chose to use the Holy Spirit’s practice of accepting the holy instant as soon as you become upset and remember “God Is” present at this very moment – your mind is free.  Sometimes when I am aggravated, beyond words I repeat “God Is” quickly, about 10 to 20 times!  It shifts me from the ego to the Holy Spirit, from Hell to Heaven.  Does it last – no!  But gradually, little by little, I have Faith that I am ascending the ladder and One Day, One Fine Day,  I will reach True Perception and the Real World.

My New Year’s Promise:  To use the Holy Instant and remember when upset, to STOP and take that very instant and think of it as being “Out of Time”- no past, no future, just God Is, God Is, God Is!  This is what the Course calls the Atonement: Remembering that the “seeming” separation from God is an illusion!  Not True!

When I remember God Is, I cannot think of hurting myself because I want to be in the Holy Instant, In Peace where eventually I will reach the Real World of True Perception.

Bless you in 2017 and for that matter – for eternity!

Suicide is not for you!

Suicide is NOT for you but Inner Peace IS!

If you think suicide is a way out – think again. You do not know the Magnificence you are.

You are not who you think you are.

You may not know it but you are the Light of the World. Do you laugh? Well, its true.

Find the light in you and never suffer a thought of suicide.

Robin Williams did not know who he was. If he did he would not be gone from this world.

Did you see the Light in Robin Williams? It is also in you.

He did not realize it was there within. But you can.

It is there.

Waiting.

Find it.

Perhaps you have health problems, depression or an addiction?

It may seem strange to look at problems or addictions as gifts but they are life’s lessons so consider them gifts and learn something on the journey. A gift can also be a challenge. Take the challenge as a gift to help you grow into the depths of your soul.

Who runs your life? We live in a dualistic world and have a dualistic mind. It contains both aspects of: “good” and “bad.” Remember the cartoon of Donald Duck with an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other? He was conflicted over which one to listen to. We knew which one was the voice of Truth or love as we hoped Donald would follow the love within.

What I have learned on this life journey so far is: the ego is not my friend.

Do I listen to it? Yes. It is one of two voices or thought systems.

Do I follow it? No.

I go within and ask “How can I see this situation differently?” I want peace and if I listen closely I will get a thought or something happens that reminds me what the peace is

The ego mind does not care we if live or die. It does want your attention and will try to distract you from reaching the other voice or thought system.

We have a split mind. You can listen to the ego or to the voice of truth within.

Love is your identity. Listen to guidance from your Higher Self and follow it and have faith, believe in it. By taking charge of your beautiful Mind, you take the ego’s power away.

This is the wisdom taught by many psychological and spiritual practices, Buddhism, A Course In Miracles or Alcoholics Anonymous to name a few.

The ego cannot change the love that is within you. It will try. It cannot succeed because LOVE is eternal. You may not feel loving but that does not mean it is not there.

You need to will TO find it.

You are in charge when you remember LOVE is who you are.

You are already really healed, whole and innocent!

You may not realize it now but that is your TRUTH.
