A Vision For Global Love, Peace And Understanding

Greetings, fellow travelers. I’m so excited about the dawning of 2008. I want to share with you my biggest learning from 2007. I can hardly imagine what empowering groundwork is continuing to be laid as I live into living from nonresistance. Joy is unlimited as we live from nonresistance! That I do know clearly! My intention for 2008 is to continue to open to the Confidence, Trust, Life and Love embodied in the spiritual teaching of nonresistance. Resistance and nonresistance are Energy and simply bring more of the same to us. Confidence is Energy and brings more Confidence. Love is Energy and brings more Love. Every moment is Choice. Every moment is Consciousness. What Life do we want to live? I love this question because it embodies Empowerment. Consciously or unconsciously we create our lives! A question that has enthralled me lately is, “What happened to the pantheistic view that flourished thousands of years ago that stated, “God is everything!” A few months ago this understanding just unfolded in me right before my very surprised eyes. It’s astonishing how a personal understanding unfolds. I was astonished to find out that this viewpoint existed thousands of years ago! I’m writing a book on the evolution of my understanding. I know it is my life work now. The pantheistic view broadens and deepens my understanding of my longheld beliefs “Everything is working together for Good” and “God is the only Presence and Power in the Universe.” I realized today God is constantly evolving. God as Spirit, with no beginning and no end, is changeless and yet constantly changing! What I further understand is that whatever we focus on we have made our God! We have made our focus the center of our attention and, therefore, the experience of our lives. I find it fascinating that in our human understanding we ever thought God existed separate from our experience. That seems very strange to me! God is Spirit and Spirit is everywhere present for all time and all eternity! I see ideas like war, fear, illness as expressions of our limited understanding of who we are and what God is. These ideas are contained in a much wider deeper expression of God that says our true nature is Wellness, Wholeness, Joy, Love. For centuries we have defined ourselves by limited ideas. We have defined God by these limited ideas. We have defined our experience by these ideas! I want to consciously create a worldview where everyone and everything is honored as a “thin place!” That means address everyone and everything as Love and Joy! That Truth already exists! That Consciousness already exists in the Universe, as the Universe! As we define our lives by this Consciousness we bring more Love and Joy into expression. I’m sure the pantheistic view got "ditched” because it didn’t seem to address the existence of what humans define as evil. We now know there is a direct cause~effect relationship between thoughts and manifestation. The Abraham teachings say, “The Universe is abundant with everything that you want. It’s not testing you. It’s benevolently providing for you. But you are the orchestrator. You are the definer, and you do it through your joyous anticipation. If there is an emotion that you are wanting to foster, that you think would serve you very, very well, it is positive expectation. It is excited anticipation.”

This beautiful quote is a card carrying example of aligning with the “thin place” of Spirit that is the underlying Principle of every manifestation. Joy and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Joy is the highest expression of the Unitive worldview, knowing there is only one Presence and Power in the world. Fear is an expression of forgetting our oneness with Spirit. Fascinatingly fear calls us back to Oneness because fear is contained in Oneness! I see the whole spectrum of our experience as our understanding of God in manifestation. We experience and create consciousness or unconsciousness. That’s why nonresistance is so important. Nonresistance expresses our understanding that we are confident and capable, that God is present in every moment, every detail, and that all is well. Another Abraham quote that illuminates the necessity of nonresistance is, “It is contrast that puts the Eternalness in Eternity. Your own valuable, personal new desire is always born from contrast. That new desire is then heard and answered by Source Energy. Thus, the glorious expansion of the Universe.” “It’s not your work to make things happen. It’s your work to dream it and let it happen. Law of Attraction will make it happen. In your joy, you create something, and then you maintain your vibrational harmony with it, and the Universe must find a way to bring it about. That’s the promise of Law of Attraction.”

All the Abraham quotes show very clearly we live from the inside out. What I further understand from all these teachings is it’s quite a different process to define something as evil rather than simply saying, “Thank you for the contrast. I see I don’t want that in my life. I choose Peace, Love, Joy, Harmony and I will harmonize my feelings and thoughts to create the reality I do want.” It occurs to me right now that what we define as evil is simply unhappiness in all its many forms. We’ve become unconscious yet again and we believe we’re disconnected from Source and we focus on that as our reality. Again and again by our choices we can bring ourselves back to Consciousness, Love, Awareness, Peace. That’s why I am so excited to be alive today. We live in such a precious world. We are the caretakers. We are the significators. That’s one reason I love EFT so much. EFT helps us directly rewire our brains so we can heal our past and move more lovingly, vibrantly, consciously into our present and future. When we live from the Whole Truth about ourselves we are unstoppable. Through prayer, meditation, Sufi dancing, or any other contemplative practice we can align with Spirit. The Universe recognizes us as unique and beautiful expressions of Itself. That’s why there are so many ways to the Truth. We live in an extraordinarily abundant Universe. There is an infinite variety of Good we can express and appreciate! That’s why there are so many “thin places”, an infinite variety of Mother Nature’s incomparable beauty embodied as Her mountains, oceans, and forests. We also have been gifted with the most accessible “thin place” embodied as our very own life. This precious “thin place” is always only a thought away. Rev. Sallye reminds us, “When we’re openhearted we feel blessed. When our hearts are closed we feel stressed.” Our bodies always let us know whether we’re connected or disconnected. Our bodies are precious “thin places” to treasure as our avenue for connection with Spirit. I love all these “thin places” we’ve been gifted with by the Universe. I feel the totality of who I am in all these holy places. I imagine you do too! I look forward to being the best of who I am unfolding into conscious awareness each moment. Blessings to you fellow traveler, as we cocreate a world expressing our highest visions of global Love, Peace, Joy, and Understanding. I wish you the Fulfillment of all of your holiest dreams. Thank you, Universe, for the All Good! I love you!!! Peace!!! Namaste!!!!!!
