    No human being has any authority over you. Your life belongs to you and to you alone. No scowling face or irritated manner, no challenging posture or threatening tone has any power to make you feel nervous or anxious, frightened or angry. What this means is that if we are not living life completely on our own terms -- if there is anyone in our life that dominates us -- it isn't because life...

    Pretending -- to yourself, or around others -- that "all is well" is the unseen hell of the false self. On the other hand, the realization that all unfolds -- moment to moment -- in the only way that it can is not only the first step in awakening from this lower level of consciousness, but it is also one of the first steps out of the world of dreams, and into the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Part 1: (Your) True Self is a "match made in Heaven," even as (the) false self dwells in a kind of "hell" born of its ceaseless conflict with any moment that fails to match what it imagines it must have... in order to ensure its equally imagined life remains in place. Part 2: When we finally understand that we cannot "prove" ourselves in this world without having first compared...

    When it comes to our wish to make real changes in ourselves, good intentions cost (us) nothing... and that's why the road to hell is paved with useless coins. On the other hand, making a conscious effort to change -- in the moment that calls for it -- comes with the cost of seeing ourselves as we really are; this awareness shows us not only the possibility of being released from our worry an...

    The infinite possibilities of all that has been done for us, in the Worlds above us, is being held for us -- within us -- in this, and in every moment; to claim this Divine inheritance -- to realize our fulfillment in its timeless Goodness -- requires a single act of obedience on our part: the interior work of being fully present to what we already are.

    What we must learn to see -- whenever we start racing around to resolve some problem that we can't stop thinking about -- is that the faster our mind wants us to run after the freedom it imagines eludes it, the more of a captive we become -- held fast in the web of our own conceptual confusion.

    True Peace is not a time to come, any more than the Kingdom of Heaven is a place apart from our own Awakened Conscience. This means that any impatience we feel over what we perceive as prohibiting our peace from arriving must be a lie... As must also be the blame we heap upon those people or conditions we hold responsible for this delay.

Part II: His consciousness is his kingdom in which he may either strive to claim his ruling scepter or, failing to fulfill his Celestial calling to Freedom, accept his captivity and its inherent sorrow.

    Here is what the sincere seeker of truth must see if he or she would ever be free: Just as we have the creative power to manifest our desires, to turn thought into matter, so does the reverse hold true in the unseen world within ourselves. Desire also holds the power to transform the self held by that desire into the form of its nature...and no desire can ever be free.

    Hatred of anyone -- for any reason -- sets the mind and heart on fire, makes the blood boil, and causes the eyes to see red. In short, in case you don't recognize the signposts for the place they describe, be warned: hatred is hell.

    Our sense of self, the way we experience ourselves, is very much connected to the widely varying states of emotional energies that come into us and that seem to shape the nature of our individuality. But the fact of the matter is, there is no such separate self, at least not the way we presently experience it. There are just these ceaseless states of energy and the fleeting sense of self they...

    When we don't understand our negative states, when we have yet to realize how they trick us into doing their bidding, they have the power to make us jump through hoops like circus animals. It's not a pretty picture in which to see ourselves, but we must not turn our eyes away from these truths that are self-evident. When we are dominated by any negativity, be it some consuming fear or heated a...

    The biggest problem facing us as individuals is that we have all been caught up in the race of looking for relief. Our time would be spent far more profitably looking for strength. When caught in a fierce storm, why scramble to find a cave at the foot of the mountain when the same energy can be used to climb? There is a choice. You can tremble within the cave, or live above the tempests th...

    There was once a little creature, and it was on the branch of a mighty oak. This great oak was the father of the forest. The little creature was sitting there sighing, and from time to time crying a little bit, and finally the old oak couldn't take it anymore. "Little creature, what is wrong with you?" The little creature was surprised. He said, "Well, I'm not sure. I just can't make it all co...

    Almost every kind of unhappy feeling is the result of mistaking the partial for the whole. What this means is that when we don't see the whole picture, we are likely to act in a way that is self-defeating. One example of this would be that terrible sinking feeling that comes with learning too late, after you've become upset, that things weren't the way you were so sure they had been. That, in...

    Seeking and receiving approval from others is like sitting down hungry to an imaginary meal. You're invited to eat all you want, but no matter how much imaginary food is served, you can never get your fill. Your hunger remains. No fictional feast ever satisfies. But this fact isn't so apparent when it comes to our appetite for approval. We still look to others for our sense of self even thou...

    Nothing is more discontented than our lower nature, the false self. It is always unhappy with one thing or another. If there is one weed in a field of roses, you can bet that is what it will see. Since it has no real life of its own, it must endlessly create stimulating thoughts and feelings of one kind or another in order to give it the sensations of being alive. Like Sisyphus, the king of an...

    There is nothing wrong with being a successful human being. In fact, the purpose of your life is to win. But what if, in your quest for this victory, you were accidentally drawn into a compelling game in which, unknown to you, it was impossible to win no matter how well you performed or religiously followed the "rules?" Where, instead of finding the freedom to run as you wish, you found yours...

    Reality is very different from our distorted ideas about it. For instance, there are many parts of us that are secretly afraid that should we earnestly reexamine our ideas about life we'd just stir up some things better left alone. However, if we don't stir them up, we'll never find out that these things we're afraid of are nothing more than "ghosts" created by our own minds. The following sto...

    Why do we accept so much unhappiness in our lives today? If you think this supposition is untrue, ask yourself why people spend so much time seeking ways to distract themselves with empty pleasures? Or why so many people push themselves along one spiritual path after another, blindly hoping that something will happen to mitigate their sense of emptiness? To understand such questions we must...

First, to set the stage, a short question about human behavior: Have you ever noticed how -- whenever there is a secret going around among your close friends - you will do almost anything to learn its undisclosed nature?

    Fear is, and has always been, nothing but a self-limiting reaction that we cling to in the darkness of our present life-level, having mistaken it for a shield of self-protection. But no wrong reaction can keep you captive once you begin to see it for what it is. You can prove this powerful principle to yourself anytime you want. Just dare to proceed even while being afraid. But remember, your...

Virtually everyone will admit they want a spiritual life; for starters this just sounds like something that one should have! But probe a bit deeper and by default, in stages, you will hear various dec...
