    The clock tells time, but its hands also show that times goes nowhere -- even though it takes a hundred parts in constant movement to impart that truth. The force "to do" what is Right and True comes to us only as we free ourselves from those forces draining us of our power to perfect the moment. We can dream our lives away -- always trying to make ourselves into what we imagine is "right and...

    Part I: Some come upon the truth of things only once they've run aground on the reefs of remorse; others long for anchorage in what endures only after the winds of fortune slack off, leaving their sails full of emptiness. But the Wise seek the Truth of themselves aright; they search moment to moment within the tides of their everyday affairs, and never look back to see if their wish to kn...

    Part I: We cannot control the way the world turns. We cannot change day into night. We cannot keep what is not ours, and we cannot hide these facts from ourselves no matter how hard we try. But what we are given to do, and that turns out to be the one power of ours truly capable of transforming our experience of life, is that we can choose the internal company we keep.

    Part 1 The only real resolution to any conflict in (our) consciousness is its release into a level of being above it; one that -- though invisible to the "realms and their inhabitants" below it, we know exists for this simple reason: there must always be a kingdom -- perceived or not -- into which whatever is released... Is released. Part 1 The true evolution of consciousness is...

    Don't try to be free -- for this sets you against any movement of life that doesn't line up with your ideas about the nature of freedom. Better than trying to be free, learn instead to freely explore all of your moments. For instance, be free to wonder about your worries instead of feverishly working to resolve them according to your present ideas about a worry-free life. Then perhaps y...

    The spiritual search for the "old nature" set against you... isn't a "snipe hunt." The source of human misery is not a myth; so that if you've yet to see the beast of self-centeredness, if you don't recognize this creature for what it is -- and where -- it lurks within you... then at least learn to look for its tracks. That way, you might one day trace them back to its dark lair, where lie a...

    Gluttony -- of any shape or form -- is not just the unbridled pursuit and inevitable surrender of oneself over to some physical pleasure, however embraced. Far from it: gluttony is the unappeasable longing of an unconscious nature whose favorite "food" -- when all is said and done -- is pain. How so?

    Whenever we will do the best we can -- give the very most that we have to give -- even though our action may be very far from "perfect" -- nevertheless, that action is our part of entering into a celestial perfection to be realized in no other way. It is only by consciously enduring our own imperfections that we are given eyes to see that, all along, Love itself has been our guide and master.

    What is commonly called the "evolution of consciousness" is one and the same as a ceaseless revelation of a limitless awareness within each of us. With this idea in mind, being "self-realized" is inseparable from our willingness to instrument this awareness... regardless of what it may reveal. This means the possibilities of (our) consciousness extend as far...

    Part 1 There may come a time when it feels as though love has abandoned us... Or, that it is so far above us as to be out of reach; nevertheless, of this you may be assured: love is always with us; it never leaves us: it can't...

    Our inner work is not to control or try to unite our mind but to become increasingly aware of the need for transcending its experience. Once it is realized that what we call our life, based in each passing, vagrant sense of "I", is no more our own than is the sound of the wind the possession of the ear that hears it, then we begin to awaken to the great spiritual truth: "My Father and I are...

    When it comes to being free, there is no such thing as the "next best thing." Therefore, it is the far wiser soul that agrees to "die" to her imagined freedom, than it is to live as a fool who realizes, too late, that he traded his soul for a servitude made comfortable by compromise.

    If only some great law required those who are ever speaking critically about the work of others to assume a portion of that same work -- in order to make it better -- then the world would know a sweet new order of silence, and those who "do" in life would no longer have to bear the bitter sound of those who won't.

    Closing our eyes to where we may be in the wrong in that moment of any strained relationship does not make what is wrong within us any less of a burden to bear, but it does ensure that wherever we go we will find ourselves "bumping" into others and, for our pride-induced blindness, continuing to blame them for what we have refused to see.

    True strength of character is not just calculated by how well we manage to carry some sizable load under challenging conditions, but is perhaps better measured by our ability to remain kind and light-spirited . . . even when we're sure that we can't bear the weight of one more ounce of life.

    We must do more than just try to remember that nothing disturbs our peace of mind without first having gained our consent to enjoin us in that conflict; we must learn to fight for ourselves, to boldly reject any negative state that would rule us -- or else accept the lot of victim and wear his mantle of woe.

    Our sensations of life have nothing in common with sensitivity to life. The former is born of unconscious reactions as they cascade and then disappear in time, while the latter is related to True Conscience and is as timeless as the eternal wisdom it helps to bear. Learning to discern the difference between these two states of our being is a pre-requisite to our realization of Real Life.

    The main reason we can't hear God telling us that whatever we need to be happy and whole is already with us – right where we are – is because our ears are filled with the sound of wind born of always being in a rush to get yet somewhere else where we hope our pain will be left behind us.

    It is impossible to hear the "Voice of Heaven" -- to be in any level of communication with real conscience -- and to be talking to yourself at the same time.

    Part 1 If you can't give the whole of your attention to someone -- or anything, for that matter -- then you can't listen. If you can't listen, you can't possibly hear the whole story. And if you can't hear the whole story, then it's impossible to understand your role in its telling. Part 2 There are no lazy hearts or minds in heaven.

    If we could hear the sun's voice as it heralds dawn, or know the secret meaning of the bird song that greets this first light, then we would hear the same testament that our own heart tells us with each beat: Begin again! What was -- is no more! To know the Truth of this is to be assured that God's Will (Itself) confirms that who we were a moment ago is not who we may be Now... If we will on...

    Part 1 It is virtually impossible to consciously bear the unpleasant manifestation of any other human being until we have awakened to the same manifestation in ourselves, and learned to consciously suffer it. In other words, we can only bear in someone else what we have learned to bear in ourselves... which means none can be truly compassionate until we know what it means to suffer oursel...

    Part I: It isn't until the mind is touched by something it cannot imagine that, for the deftness of this quieting embrace, it gives up its childish pursuits and learns to wait in receptive repose.

    The surface of anything is always the first to erode, be it paint on a house or some pleasure from a meal. The shallowness of self is inherent in the temporary forces that create it, so that its degradation is built into its very structure. Only the Essential --- hidden deep within us --- may escape the relentless wear and tear of life, and develop beyond being destroyed.

    The gentle strains of great and noble truths pass through the soul in every fleeting moment; and had we but a wish to hear, coupled with the will to be silent for a spell, we would soon detect the sound of our own eternity, sounding out in that silence to which we then would hold so dear.

    Part I: When you realize that the only way to overcome your adversary of the hour is by disappearing to it, then you will begin to rightly value the idea of being no one... You will start to see your own nothingness not as a state of self to be feared, but as a seat of True Power Part II: The only power that one has over a fire once he has started it is to stop feeding it.

    No one knows half as much as they pretend to, and -- because of life's uncertainties -- the other half of what they know only holds up half the time. Do the math: at best, these people are only 25% certain 25% of the time, which means the rest of their life is spent fearing you may discover their secret self-doubt. Set yourself free of all those who would tell you what you should be doing with...

    Clinging to a handful of anxious, worried thoughts that promise to protect you from what they point to as needing to be feared, is like wrapping your arms around the anchor of a sinking ship because it's all that's left on deck for you to hang on to.

    Higher Understanding affirms each moment for it is, by nature, one with a living and intelligent universe that wills the endless creation it expresses. While ignorance denies each moment, for it dwells in a dark little world of its own -- apart from all that it sees -- fearing that whatever it sees unfolding before it may turn out to be its undoing.

    Just as the physical eye can't see itself other than through a reflection, you cannot see your "self" other than by gazing upon some mental image of your own creation. So, when "seeing" yourself as a failure in your mind's eye, just remember in that same moment it isn't you who made that picture, and that...

    Part 1 The more perfect the reflection, the less difference there is between the perceived and the perceiver. It is the absence of this distinction that the divided mind, the false self, fears above all else... for its very sense of existence depends upon feeling apart from all that it sees. Part 2 The love that you uncover in your heart for God is as un-measurable as God's love its...

    Part 1 It's not the moment that's unsteady; it's our present level of self: a shack made of sticks that's shaken by any unexpected wind... and that fears its own shuddering. Part 2 The real reason why "familiarity breeds contempt" is because the wish that life remains constant, and knowable flies directly in the face of celestial laws that say nothing in existence remains the same.

    Until we stop trying, in vain, to fill the empty moments of our lives with all of the distractions we pursue to quell that ache, we will never see, let alone realize this same sense of emptiness -- that we now resist -- is full of Light, a Living Awareness that neither fears nor wants for anything outside of its own Native Wholeness.
