If God(Spirit) is, then I am. I cannot say, "I am yesterday," and I cannot say, "I am tomorrow." All I can say is "If God is, I am."
Joel Goldsmith
God as man(women), in man, is man.
Science of Mind
As we go along in this often times bizarre world we find ourselves searching for something but not quite knowing what that something is. There are times when we feel we know what we are searching for but for many of us these times are relatively few compared to the times we dont know what we are looking for. Spirit will keep gnawing at us until we heed Its call to discover who we are and what we are meant to be doing in this life.If we ignore this prompting I am afraid that we will suffer in many ways and not even be aware as to why.If on the other hand we do surrender to Spirit and look within to find our true selves we will find our lives filled with much meaning and this in turn will bring us much happines and joy and all good things into our lives. We need to be aware that we dont let our search become one of looking at outside forces and things other than what is inside us already. We are made perfect for the job we were put here to do so looking outside ourselves will only bring disappointment and heartache.Look within and know that you and Spirit are One now and always.Mayyour jurney be one filled with much happiness and love. I bless your hearts!

"Let us, by our thinking and living, speed thinking when the oneness of mankind(humankind) will be not only theorized but practiced."
Our bodies are One with teh Whole Body of the universe. Seeds, plants, cabbages, and kings are all made out of the same substance.
Science of Mind
Its true friends. No matter what your beliefs, your skin color, your nationality etc we are All made from the same source. It doesnt matter what you name it:Spirit, God, Allah, Buddha, etc. If one will just lay aside their pre-conditioned beliefs , their prejudices, their fears etc and really think about it Im sure most of you would have to agree.
So being made from the same source would make us all brothers and sisters wouldn't it? So why dont we all start right now to treat each other as if this was true now and always?
My hope is that each one of you will have the most wonderful week ahead filled with lots of love, peace, and happiness. Hugs to all of you!

"Men(and women) have lingered too long in the dark places; truth is calling us into the light.
The unfoldment of these inner and finer forces through man is what we call his evolution.
Science of Mind
My hope and prayer is that each one of you on your own individual journey will quickly find the light that makes your pathway bright. May the "dark" places be quickly dissolved as you find the light that always burns brightly within your soul.

On the first page of the book One by Richard Bach lies this quote. "I gave my life to become the person I am right now. Was it worth it? I think that says it all so Ill not add anything to it. Just think about that little sentence and see how it applies to your own life. Hugs to all of you my fellow human beings and friends. Bless all your hearts!

Just ask any money manager the fastest way for someone to make money and they will tell you to put your money into some kind of vehicle which will draw compound interest. For when your money works like that it will grow at the fastest rate possible.
So if one wants to deposit into this life or creative mind more peace, more love, more kindness, and more of every good thing one has to give then be assured that Spirit will bring all of these good things back into your own personal experience with compound interest. Or to state it more simply life returns back to one what they sow into their own lives. Of course Spirit does not discriminate so if one sows disharmony, hate, prejudice, or any other negative thing it too is returned back to them with compound interest. So be careful what you sow along the way and may all your days and nights be filled with much love , peace, and goodness. I leave you now with the following quotes:
"Begin now to deposit joy,peace, and good humor;busy your mind with these things; then the subconscious mind will give you compound interest."---The Miracle of Your Mind
See with perfect clearness and never become discouraged nor overcome by a sense of limititation.--Science of Mind

If only we could all learn how to see clearly the whole truth of how life really is. But we all color our visions according to what we have been told and what we have accepted as truth from an early age on into adulthood. Some of us never take the time to question what we believe, we just spend our entire lives doing what we have always done. This isn't either right or wrong its just that maybe we wernt meant to live our lives the way we were brought up to be. I dunno! But Im so glad that at some point I was able to question my own beliefs and was able to reach my own conclusions. I may be wrong but at least I think I did it the right way. And I suppose thats the only thing that really counts.Its just that I think we all sometimes accept things as being the way they are and thats it when in reality we could change the "bad" things with a newer vision. I will leave you with the hope s of a wonderrful weekend for all of you and the following quotes.
"It is your destiny to see as God(Spirit) sees, to know as God knows, to feel as God feels."
Meister Eckhart
Let us learn to see as God must, with a perfect vision.

To those of you who know me and are aware of my beliefs know that I subscribe to the idea that all of us ( humans, animals, and plants) are one and that we all come from the same source which I perfer to call Spirit or God. This post may seem to belie those beliefs but I will try to explain.
This past weekend has been filled with much anger for me on the inside.Being a human I totally accept all of my human emotions and embrace them even if they happen to be of a negative nature.I am not being hypocritical when I say we all should be quick to forgive one another and free ourselves of the negative emotions we sometimes have to deal with. I know I will get over this latest "hurt" and will be able to forgive the person who managed to bring these emotions into my life.
Without going into great detail Ill explain what happened. My beautiful wife came home from work last friday with tears in her eyes due to the fact that one of her managers at work had falsely accused her of things that just wer not true. I spent all weekend having to deal with my anger because this manager was not coming back to work until today. So this morning I went to face him with his actions andf immediately he got defensive and we both got angry. I admit I was mad and maybe I was wrong but nobody I mean nobody is going to mistreat my beautiful wife without having to answer to me. She is the most beautiful soul in the world and would never do anything wrong to another person.As a matter of fact even with this manager's actions toward her she tried to talk me out of saying anything at all to him. She was willing to just drop it and let it go but this time I felt I had to stand up for what was right. I must say I did manage to push this guys buttons enough this morning for him to call the police to come escort me out of the store. So having had my say and letting him know he is alittle back stabbing weasel I left before the cops got there.Kinda like the Charlie Daniels song Easy Rider!
Anyway, I can now put this episode to rest and hopefully in a few days forgiv e this guy and just let it all go. I know my wife and I's greater good is coming about because of these circumstances and I have no doubts that the law of karma will bring to him his just rewards some day.Im glad I dont feel I have to do anything else Ill gladly leave it up to lifes own laws.
So even if I happen to have to deal with one of lifes "pricks" from time to time I still believe we are all one even if I dont agree with anothers actions. I sure hope all of you had a better weekend than I did! And I hope your dealings with any "pricks" are few and far between. Hav e a great day. Hugs to you all!

"When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye
"I turned to look but it was gone, I cannot put my finger on it now
"The child is grown the dreams are gone and I have become comfortably numb.
I use the lyrics from an old Pink Floyd(one of my favorite bands of all time,you really should check out there wonderful old songs) for todays thoughts that have been rummaging thru my mind. I can remember all the things I dreamed of doing when I was a lad and had not yet become jaded by the collective consciousness of the world. There was nothing I couldnt do, all I had do was declare what it was I was going to do with myself as I grew into an adult. I was blessed to have wonderful parents that never told me I couldnt do anything I wanted.I was going to be an astronaut but probably after I had retired from being a pro baseball player.Oh how i can sweetly recall those dreams. What happened?
As I entered high school things begin to change. My interest changed alright but I also began to lose sight of my dreams.The next thing I knew I was out of school and working to make money to live on.Mydreams of the "big" things somehow got lost in the shuffle of working and trying to find my way.I spent many years kinda "lost" or just getting by. Little by little the nagging feeling that I had lost my dreams of my youth kept haunting me.I suppose that is why I loved the song by Pink Floyd. It kinda summed up my life.
But thankfully at a still young age I managed to reach back into the depths of my mind and find some of those old dreams. Of course the pro baseball career and the astronaut things was no longer an option so I decided on making new dreams come true. During this time I began to feel a tug from the ONE SPIRIT that makes up all of us.It has taken me down several paths, some hard some easier but all of them enlightening in their own way.
One thing for sure was that this calling sure got me out of the comfortably numb state(there is hardly ever a dull moment following Spirits guiding words) I had lapsed into.But at times even these days as I read of all the bs in this world the awful things we do to each other etc I start to drift back into that state as kind of a protection. Thats when I have to dig deep and again start believing in my dreams of a world of all people living in peace and living as one. And with a lot of help from my friends such as yourself I will keep on dreaming.I hope you all have the most wonderful weekend posible.Hugs to each one of you!

We find that prayer is essential to happiness, for righteous prayer sets the law of the Spirit of life in motion for our good.

As a youngster growing up in America's heartland of western Kentucky I was raised in a traditional church with all the theories and beliefs of those who had founded the church and subscribed to those beliefs. I must say this teaching did give me a solid foundation of the ways I could shape my life.But even at such an early age I never felt quite comfortable with all the teachings.It just seemed a little close minded to think my church was the only one that was "right" and that the rest of the world was wrong in any of their beliefs.
And therein became the reason I quit my church as a teenager and began to think for myself in spiritual terms.Like I said the teachings I had adhered to that felt right I held onto, those beliefs included treating each other as one, doing the golden rule, being honest, and other solid core beliefs which I still hold onto even today.
But I knew somehow that Spirit and spirituality was something greater than just going to church every sunday and believing in a certain way and hoping that someday I would be able to get to Heaven after I died.Those feelings awoke inside of me a fervert wanting to find out what the "truth" really was.Well, let me tell ya Im now 56 years old and Im still learning everyday some new truths and having to let go of some of the old ones. But I find this road of discovery Im on is the most wonderful amazing thing I could have ever hoped for.
One thing I did learn quickly was that God or Spirit was not limited to being Inside the church and trapped within those walls.Since I stopped going to church as a teen Ive found a lot more of God outside of those walls. Dont get me wrong, I have nothing against anyone belonging to a certain church or having their own beliefs.But I do feel sorry for those who think that God is just located withing church walls and cant be found anywhere else.
These past years have flown by for me. Ive learned to see Spirit everywhere I look.On the morning grass glistening as sparkling dew,in the tiny hummingbird sipping nectar from the feeder,in the laughter of children at play, in the warm smile from a "stranger" I meet on the streets, and most importantly I see Spirit in the eyes of every person I see.I admit it is sometimes tough to see God in the middle of something disturbing such as war or poverty or any number of man made woes. But I truly do believe if we look hard enoughwe will see Spirit in all. I love you folks and my hope is that today and every day from now on will be the best ever for you and yours. I'll leave you with the following thoughts:
"In my soul there is a temple, a shrine, amosque, a church that dissolves, that dissolves in God."--Rabia
It is useless, as well as foolish, to make any attempts to cover this Principal(SPIRIT), or hold It as a vested right of any religious sect or order.--Science of Mind

I sure hope all you folks had a tremendous weekend and are now ready to begin a brand new week. May all of you be excited about all the possibilities that now lie dormant in the new week ahead. Its a brand new day, one that has never been lived in before, and it sits there like an empty canvas just waiting for you to add your own personal colors and touches to each new day. I also realize that many of you will find yourself facing situations that may be filled with unpleasant choices one has to make. And my hope for you is that you will be able to look past the outward appearances of these "tough" situations and get through them as quickly and easily as possible.Please remember that no matter what is going on in your life you have at your disposal all the new "brushes & colors" that you need to repaint your own new and improved masterpiece.
You know, I've been called a dreamer by many and a fool by some for the way I look at life. And you know what, it really doesn't bother me much how I am perceived by folks as long as they respect my decisions as much as I respect theirs. I would be quick to say that my beliefs are not meant for everyone at this moment.I know my life and my beliefs are my personal choices and that it doesn't make them either right or wrong. And Im sure in the future I will still rethink my views and change some of them from time to time. As I continue to live and experience new people new ideas and new beliefs I know I am still far from becoming my complete "real self".
It has been said there is a thin line between being a dreamer and being a fool.I like to think of myself as a dreamer but its ok if you or anyone else thinks of me as a fool. I believe in unity of all people,I keep an open mind and I accept you and everyone else just as they are.I may not agree(hell, I may even really hate) with some of your actions or beliefs. But I do believe you and I and everyone else is a part of each other. And if this is true then every action I do toward you Im doing it to myself as well.I believe in unconditional love and I believe there is truly a possibility that one day all of us will have learned to live in total love peace, and harmony on this one planet.Again I readily admit to being a dreamer but as the late great John Lennon once said "but Im not the only one, and I hope that one day you will join us and the world will live as one". Take care my fellow friends and neighbors and may this new week be the best one for you ever!
I now leave you with a quote from one of my favorite authors: "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundation unde them.--Henry David Thoreau

One thing most of us really need is to feel that we belong. Belong to something anything as long as we feel a connection with others in some way. There are very few peole who can enjoy this life while not having any connections with others. And I know from experience that whenever I feel seperated from everything it always causes me much needless pain and heartache.
Why do I or any of us let ourselves feel as if we are not a part of something bigger than we are? I wish I knew the answer to that one. But inwardly I am always aware that I am a part of EVERYTHING even if it doesnt seem that way at times.
And the beauty of belonging is that we are free to choose what we want to be connected with. Not that we always make the greatest decision in this area but we can always change at any time. Personally I feel a connection with all of humanity and all o f nature which I call Spirit.To me it is a very simple thing to feel. But like I said I have at times let life's troubles and hardships get in my way and I have lost sight of that "connection" But thankfully I have always been able to reconnect with my feelings and overcome the sensde of not belonging. It isn't always easy as a matter of fact there have been times when I've had to literally get on my hands and knees and crawl back to that spiritual awareness of my "oneness" with Spirit and with all life.
My wish for all of you beautiful people is that you can at this very moment feel your oneness with all of life. If this is not the case then I wish for you the ability to attain this feeling real soon.I surely hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend filled with much love, peace,and joy! I'll leave you with the following quotes
"Just sit there right now. Don't do a thing. Just rest. For your seperation from God is the hardest work in the world.---Hafiz

If we think of ourselves as being seperated from the Universe, we shall be limited by this thought, for it is a belief in seperation from God which binds and limits.---Science of Mind

And you say this world is filled with too much ugliness of an overpopulated planet. Well I must agree that we humans have sure messd up a lot of our planet's beauty in our quest for its raw materials and things we believe we must have in order to live a good life. Understandably there is much we need to do to once again restore our beautiful planet to its original state as much as possible.
But even among all this one must surely see all the beauty that is surropunding us everywhere we look.Even when we look at a natural disaster we can still see the beauty inherent.Here in Kentucky we just experienced the worst ice storm in over a hundred years. It totally shut down everything for weeks.No electricity phone servixce etc for many of us for well over 2 weeks. But in the throes of this agony I must admit that the ice that was clingling toevery tree bush power line etc was absolute breath taking.Such a wonder to look at even while we were suffering. One of the most beautiful things of the ice storm was how most folks came together and worked as one to help each other ouot in these trying times. Of course there were those selfish people who tried to take advantage of the storm to overcharge folks on the cleanup but all in all they were few compared to the many who worked unselfishly thru it all.
I think we must all begin to look at the planet as a living breathing entity that we need to take beter care of so our future generations will have some of the beauty left.And when we are experiencing "storms"in our personel lives may we all remember to look within and see the beauty even in the eye of the storm. I leave you with the following quotes.
Dear God. please reveal to us your sublime beauty that is everywhere, everywhere, so that we will never again feel frightened.
St. Francis of Assisi

Through my eyes, God sees the perfection of HIs Kingdom. I too, see perfection in all creation....the beauty of the Omnipresent God.

Being a perfect expression of the Infinite Spirit is an innate gift. We dont have to do anything to earn that its just the way it is! We could be nothing more nor nothing less than this perfect expression no matter how hard we may try.I agree that we sure dont always act like this Divine Expression but thats because we let ourselves get weighed down by all of life's have-tos and must-dos.Even when we dont necessarily feel like we are a divine being rest assured that we are still the same. God or Spirit in man as man is man or woman as the case may be.Just try to remember that no matter what our present circumstances happen to be we can still choose to rise above them and elect to express our true inner self which unlike our ego self is always perfect.
I will leave you with the following quotes:
Every act reveals God(Spirit) and expands His being.I know that may be hard to comprehend. All creatures are doing their best to help God in His Birth of Himself.
Meister Eckhart

In expressing Itself through us, It becomes more fully conscious of Its own Being.
Science of Mind
