“… Only the eternal can be loved, for love does not die. What is of God is His forever, and you are of God. Would He allow Himself to suffer? And would He offer His Son anything that is not acceptable to Him? If you will accept yourself as God created you, you will be incapable of suffering. Yet to do this you must acknowledge Him as your Creator. This is not because you will be punished otherwise. It is merely because your acknowledgment of your Father is the acknowledgment of yourself as you are. Your Father created you wholly without sin, wholly without pain and wholly without suffering of any kind. If you deny Him you bring sin, pain and suffering into your own mind because of the power He gave it. Your mind is capable of creating worlds, but it can also deny what it creates because it is free…”

Temperence, Balance and Patience

A Happy Heart and Soul

Temperence means to have restraint in what you do; to do things in moderation.

I normally suggest doing the opposite since most of us are trapped in resistance, holding back from what life truly has to offer. This constant denial of your true nature can only hold for so long until it manifests in overindulgence in other areas.

How do you feel after you’re left with the emptiness from a day of excess (spent too much money…

Nothing can ever divide us
not even your fear or indifference
for I am patient
free from the shackles of time
waiting for you to awaken
and call My name

The Path Is Sure And Brightly Lit

One Light of Being™

InvocationDear Holy Spirit, I take pause this moment and once again come to you with my mind full of error.  So often I come to you after listening to the voice of the ego and following it down the dark road into illusions.  Only when there is darkness all around and I feel afraid and alone, sick or in need do I remember to come to you.   I forget that I should make no decisions by myself, without Your help. 

It is apparent that I have chosen wrongly because I’m not full of joy and love.   So do I take this moment to ask for Your help.  I no longer want to harbor illusions, which reflect the mad ideas of separation and sin.  I want only to rest in our Father, secure in His loving embrace.  I want only to know Him and share Him forever.   You’ve shown…
