    In the highest parts of our consciousness, there is a living relationship whose meaning is inseparable from the world that it sees and experiences. There is no need to "take thought" in order to know that we are alive. To think for ourselves properly means to be aware of our reactions to the world, and to not allow those reactions to run wild on their own...

    There is a difference between thinking about a moment, and being in a kind of relationship with the moment in which there is awareness of ourselves as we actually are. The present moment provides us with the opportunity to see that our experience of an event is not separate from the event that we are experiencing. Awareness of this fact puts an end to blaming the outside world for our experience of life.

    How much time and energy and breath would we save if we were aware of the part of us that wants to speak before it starts speaking? Much of the talking that we do is brought about by an unconscious nature that compels us to speak so that it can experience more of itself. By observing ourselves we can catch the anxious part of us that demands we say something in order to relieve the pressure.

    Wanting to be free of anything because it troubles you is a form of ambition, because the assumption behind the ambition is that I have the power and the authority to shut this down. And you have neither power nor authority - what you have is a small gift from God that will allow you to see what ambition does to tear apart your soul.

    The touch of God often comes in the form of a disturbance, which is meant to bring us into presence where we can be a part of real life and change. But if you hear these three words you'll know that you've been handed off to negativity instead, where real change is impossible!

    The divine expresses its infinite being in every creature he makes. If I can see that expression and attend to it, I am then the conscious reflection of that creation. I know an aspect not just of myself in that moment, but of the divine itself. And in this way I become self-realized.

    When you start to understand that there is a nature within that has no interest in "doing the good" then a real and right struggle begins within you, and now instead of hating yourself for your weakness, you know what your work is.

    Try to catch the part of yourself that can't wait to pick up negativity and then learn how to set it down before you get caught up in its momentum. You will find that to set it down requires that you first set yourself down.

    If you wish to enter into a new relationship with life you must be willing to challenge the voices of ""I can't"" or ""I won't"" or ""I don't"" when they appear in your mind. This is the only way you will ever have the possibility of discovering that those voices are not really you.
