Discovering the Key to Letting Go and Letting God

7/17/2019
More
Let’s go deeply inside the phrase ‘let go and let God,’ a much-loved phrase in which there’s more than meets the eye…“Letting go” means to let go of the limited ego, with its narrow understanding, its preconceived ideas and its demanding self-will. It means letting go of our suspicions and misconceptions, our fears and lack of trust…It means letting go of the tightly held attitude that says, in so many words, “Life must go exactly according to my plan”… The ultimate aim of “letting God” is...

Mastering the Art of Stepping into Leadership

7/16/2019
More
When it comes to mastering leadership, we have many conflicting attitudes. First of all, we envy leadership when we encounter it in others…We reactivate our dormant reactions towards anyone in authority, dragging obsolete problems out of hiding and making an enemy of anyone who is a leader in the truest sense of the word… In our envy of the leaders, we want to become the leader. But this undeveloped, childish part—which overshadows the parts that are more developed—doesn’t want to accept...

Reading Between the Lines of the Lord’s Prayer

7/16/2019
More
Within the lines of the Lord's Prayer is everything—yes, everything—we need to live a glorious life. This is what makes the Lord’s Prayer the most beautiful of all prayers. OUR FATHER As we say these words softly inside ourselves, we can meditate on how this must apply to everyone, even those we don’t happen to like…In fact, we can only call ourselves children of God if we’re willing to open the gates to all the creeps and crapheads in our world. Either no one’s in this flock or everyone...

What’s the Real Spiritual Meaning of Crisis?

7/15/2019
More
In whatever form it shows up, crisis is always attempting to break down old structures that are based on negativity and wrong thinking. It shakes loose ingrained habits and breaks up frozen energy patterns so new growth can happen. Indeed, the tearing down process is painful, but without it, transformation is unthinkable. This is the meaning of crisis. Change is an inevitable fact of life; where there’s life, there’s never-ending change. Full stop. But when we live in fear and negativity,...

Process of Meditation to Connect Three Voices: The Ego, the Lower Self and the Higher Self

7/14/2019
More
To get started, we need to understand the three fundamental layers of the personality that must be involved in the process of meditation for it to be truly effective. The three levels are: 1) the ego, with our ability to think and take action, 2) the destructive inner child, with its hidden ignorance and omnipotence, and immature demands and destructiveness, and 3) the Higher Self, with its superior wisdom, courage and love that allows for a more balanced and complete outlook on...

Uncloaking the Three Principles of Evil: Separation, Materialism and Confusion

7/13/2019
More
For people walking a path of self-discovery—whether through therapy, spiritual counseling or the like—the work tends to concentrate on waking up our own inner being, bringing all our inner obstacles into our awareness so we can transform them. This is important and necessary work. We need to get to know our Lower Self and how it operates if we want make another choice. For we are basically a big electromagnetic field that always follows the like-attracts-like rule. Bottom line: we need some...

The Right and Wrong Way to Think Positively

7/12/2019
More
There is a subject of great dispute: positive thinking. As many believe, it is indeed essential for anyone who wants to mature spiritually. Unfortunately, it is often wrongly understood and therefore applied in the wrong way, for there is a wrong way to think positively. One of the fundamental building blocks of any spiritual path is developing clean and sound thoughts…Unclean thoughts then build disharmonious creations that lead, eventually, to impacting our destiny… It’s always so...

Two Rebellious Reactions to Authority

7/10/2019
More
We face our first conflict with authority at a very young age. Parents, siblings, relatives and later teachers all represent authority whose job is seemingly to say No…So there’s a barrier between the child and the adult in charge…On one hand, the child wants the parent’s love, and on the other, the child rebels against being restricted…Authority, then, is the hostile force of an enemy locking us behind prison bars and causing frustration… The child then develops an impatient longing to...

Why Flubbing on Perfection is the Way to Find Joy

7/9/2019
More
Whether we realize it or not, we associate a joyful life with a life of perfection. We can’t enjoy life if we’re not perfect—or so we think—nor can we enjoy our neighbors or our lovers or our situation in life. So let’s pause right here because this is one of humanity’s biggest bonehead beliefs. Essentially, we demand perfection, and that’s just not what’s happening… It’s time to connect the dots between how our need for perfection alienates us from our true selves, which in turn hoses up...

Articulating the Power of the Word

7/8/2019
More
In the beginning was the word. Words, in fact, are the blueprint necessary for building any structure…Nothing in creation can exist unless a word has been spoken, known, held, believed in and committed to… Holy Scripture starts by postulating that in the beginning was—or actually is—the word. The word is eternal; it will always be. It is from God’s spoken word that all creation came into being, including our personalities…So what do we do with this truth? Well, for one thing, we can become...

Bringing Ourselves to Order, Inside and Out

7/7/2019
More
Orderliness is directly connected with divine harmony and, like so many things, there is both an inner version and an outer version; there’s also a divine version, order, and a corresponding distortion, disorder. In the grand scheme of things, inner order is what we experience when we are fully conscious and there is no more unconscious material left in our soul…Any lack of awareness is an indication of disorder somewhere in our soul. When we’re not aware, we’re not in truth; things slip...

Basking in Grace and Not Building on Deficit

7/7/2019
More
There’s an obstacle many face. It’s the tendency for people to build on deficit. This is intrinsically linked to this belief in an empty, poor, ungiving world…Whenever we stack positive beliefs on top of negative ones we are only half-aware of, we are building on deficit. So if we secretly believe we are unlovable or unacceptable, despite our surface behaviors to the contrary, we’re building on deficit… The trouble with building on deficit is that it appears to work, at least for a while....

Unwinding Humanity’s Relationship with Time

7/6/2019
More
Imagine we live in a great big house that has one room we don’t use, so it becomes a room for storage. We push a few things into it helter-skelter and if we had to tidy it up at that point, it wouldn’t take too long. Imagine over time we let things pile up until that room’s filled to the brim. We’re lazy and don’t want to hassle with sorting things and putting them away as we go. Now we’ve got a tougher job on our hands. It’s just like this with the time we have at our disposal… If we have...

Preparing for Reincarnation: Every Life Counts

7/5/2019
More
We each have a Book of Life and everything gets written down in it, for everything in every life counts. As such, every incarnation is meticulously planned by carefully following the information contained in our “general ledger”… Be careful about comparing, judging and generalizing. Our view is very limited, seeing just one life at a time, and at that, what we see is still even more limited…So whenever we’re inclined to say that our life is too difficult to bear or that someone else has it...

Debunking the Curious Superstition of Pessimism

7/4/2019
More
We humans are a superstitious lot. There is one insidious form of superstition—pessimism—that is the hidden culprit behind many of our disappointments in life… It all starts with an inner attitude that goes something like this: “If I believe that something good may happen, I will be disappointed because I will chase it away with my believing in it. Maybe it’s a safer bet to believe that nothing good will happen to me.” This is the game we play with ourselves… At some point, this playful...

Exploring the Spiritual Nature of Political Systems

7/3/2019
More
We’re about to discover, by reviewing the spiritual nature of political systems found on this planet—monarchy and feudalism, socialism and communism, and capitalistic democracy—that each has a divine origin plus a handful of distortions….We’ll also see how each of them—in their divine and distorted ways—lives in each one of us… In its original divine nature, capitalistic democracy is about total freedom of expression and abundance as it accrues from personal investment. At the same time,...

Privacy and Secrecy: A Boost or Bust for Finding Closeness

7/1/2019
More
We all have needs: real, legitimate, have-a-right-to-have-them needs. One of these needs is for closeness. Another need, it turns out, is to have privacy. It’s not hard to imagine that these two can be tricky to weave together. Privacy, then, is not a nice-to-have, but a need-to-have. Being oblivious to this reality, we may find ourselves alone and then immediately set about cluttering up our inner landscape with noise So where does secrecy come in? Take apart any secrets and we’ll find the...
