Well, certainly one person's truth may not be the same for another at any given time but rest assured there is a greater Truth "out there" just waiting for us to gather it in and accept it as the One Truth. I firmly believe this truth is the one that tells us we are ALL one in spirit and will one day arrive at this truth in our consciousness. It may be hard to see at times and you have every right to disagree with my way of thinking but to me it doesnt change any thing really. Here is a quote from Christian D. Larson from his book Pathway of Roses: "The states of mind will always be true so long as the mind thinks the truth---- thinks the truth that man (woman and children) is in the divine perfection of his (their) real spiritual being." And also from the Science of Mind Textbook pg 142: When we understand the Law, we learn to consciously embody what we wish, and think of this only, and then we are drawn silently toward it. My personal hope and desire is that each of us quickly learn to accept this Truth and begin living our lives as One race--human beings! May all of you be safe and have a most wonderful week ahead.

Have you ever felt out of place, alone in a crazy world, misunderstood by most people, or just experienced a vague feeling that something is missing or out of place? Have you ever felt that life is something greater or more supreme than you yourself are? Have you ever felt you are just not in the right place but at the same time you don't know where it is you are supposed to be? I believe most of us have experienced one of these feelings or something very similiar to that at one time or another. Believe me, I know I have felt that way many a time. And its not so much a "bad" feeling as it is one of restlessness or just not knowing which way to turn next. At any rate its not a very "good" feeling to experience but I have found that when I am in the midst of one of these periods it has always made me stop and take a long honest look at myself. And by doing that I believe I have used those times to grow spiritually and realize who I really am. Even tho I may still have doubts from time to time I believe that all of us as human beings are exactly where we are meant to be at every precious moment. It may not seem like it and it may not be much fun at times but it is a necessary step in ones evolution of self and mind. I truly believe with all my heart and soul we are all "ONE". We come from the same Source and will return to that Source when the time is right. I further believe we are always "connected" to our Source which then makes all of us connected. As Isha Upanishad speaks to Spirit: "Source of life for all creatures, spread your light and subdue your dazzling splendor so that I may see your blessed self. Even that very Self am I!" And from the Science of Mind page 28:We shall never encompass God (Spirit), and yet we shall always be in God and of God! I bid all of you a good night and hope and pray that tomorrow's sunrise will find you happy, loved, safe, and feeling great!

Just like the biblical story of the Prodigal Son we must all learn to find our way back home if we are to live this life fully and attain enlightenment to some degree. By going back home of course I don't mean we shall all go back to where we were born in this world. The home I speak of is our "Spiritual" home. And this home also is not to be confused with any religious teachings of a home somewhere "out there" above us far away in the etheral expanses of outer space. Again please dont get me wrong; if you believe in a home in Heaven or anywhere with your God that is ok by me. But for this essay that is not the "home" I am speaking of. The one I speak of is the one that lies deep within our souls that is oft times hidden or obscured from our immediate view as human beings.And no wonder it becomes clouded what with all the "junk" we deal with on a regular basis. Most of us get so caught up in our daily lives( jobs, children,spouses,debts, etc etc) it really takes an effort to turn ones attention to their inner home. But when we do discover we have made it back home toour center we find all is well. Therein lies all the answers we seek, all teh love and peace we desire, and the complete stillness that tells us everything is ok andf that we are exactly where we are supposed to be.As Joel S. Goldsmith puts it:"Each one has to find himself (herself) to be the law of life unto his or her own being---the kingdom of his her own being." Another quote I really love is found in the Science of Mind page 127--When we know our oneness with God (Spirit) and Law, what a great burden is removed. My sincerest hope is that each one of you beautiful people will soon find your way back home if you have not already arrived. Peace and love I leave with you. Bless all you gentle souls.

I truly believe that inside each of us there lies an unlimited potential that few of us ever truly realize we have, let alone use that potential for greatness. As human beings it is so easy to look at others and see the great things they accomplish and thus they soon become our "heroes". Don't get me wrong, I think all of us need a hero or two in our lives. Maybe these heros are just ordinary people who we depend upon to help keep us sane at times. These heros come disguised as family members, friends, artists, authors, sports stars, and yes I believe even those we may call foes can really be a hero at times. I classify anyone who helps me along in this world to grow and to learn as one of my heros. I have so many untold heros that have written books for me to read, that have taken a moment to say hello and how are ya, that have turned their back on me and forced me to do the thing for myself, heros who have allowed me to be a small part of their lives, heros who have overcome great odds and accomplished much good while leaving me with hope for myself in accomplishing things I previously thought unattainable.Yes, Ive been fortunate, my life has been filled with heros of all kinds, some that never even considered themselves a hero.I would have us all realize that at any given time we may be a hero to someone without even knowing it. So instead of looking at all the heros out there and saying I wish I could do something grand, look inside, dig down deep, find that unlimited potential for good, and let Spirit lead you on to becoming someones hero if only for a fleeting second. We are all the Light that shines from infinity and thus beyond. I leave you gentle souls with this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:"Insist on yourself; never imitate......Every great man(and woman) is unique."

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.--Oprah Winfrey
How often do you think about every time you breathe? If you are like me not very often. Its just that automatic thing the body does to keep itself alive. About the only time I am aware of my breath is when Im having trouble breathing through my nose at night. And on those occassions when I go and practice my inner meditations which I admit I dont do often enough. But if one will stop and think and realize that this one breath right now is all that stands betweeen you and so called death. Now is the only time breath is important.That should be a reminder to all of us that all we really have in this human life is the one eternal moment before us now. And that then begs the question "What am I going to do with this one precious moment?" I sincerely hope all of us (myself included) will use this moment to bring a little light, love, peace,a nd joy into our world by doing something nice for someone else. Be brave, aim high with your thoughts and may the sun shine down your way!

How easy it would be to remain in darkness for the rest of our lives. By that I mean to continue to live our lives in the "darkness" of trying to be what someone else tells us we should be. Its also easier to just say we have no power over our lives than it is to face our own deep inner realities and take a really unbiased look at who and what we are. AN old proverb I once read somewhere( I think it was a chinese proverb) says--"the hardest path, I have discovered, Is the one that leads me back to myself." Now I can believe that with no trouble. I know just how hard it is to take a completely honest look at myself. No one really likes to admit they are wrong or that they need help or that they will never be perfect or a million other things.Sometimes its so easier to live in the dark rather than shine ones inner light on their soul for an inspection. But I truly feel that finding the courage to shine ones inner light out into this troubled world is a worthwhile goal for all of us. May your love light shine brightly now and forever. I will leave you now with a quote from Plato who said,"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men(and women) are afraid of the light."

Just what do yo want to receive from this life? Do you really have the ability a nd drive to get what you want? Well, I believe that you do. If you are not it could be because you are not expecting the things to happen that would fulfill you as a human being. Its great to want a live filled with everything you desire coming true but its impossible to have that unless you have trained your mind to expect the best to happen. Many of us live with the thought that tomorrow will be the day when all my dreams come true b ut then we turn right around and find ourselves expecting something to come along and derail these desires. One cannot thhink negatively and then expect the positive to happen. Life just doesnt work that way. We must first expect the best keep our thoughts centered on the positive and have enough faith in the Universal Mind to complete teh circle and bring our desires into manifestion. So I would suggest that if your life isnt exactly the way you want it to be that you take a real close hard look at your everyday thoughts and inner beliefs and see what is keeping your greatest god from manifesting. I sincerely hope all of you can and will see your every desire and want come true.Peace and love to all!

Here comes the weekend my friends. I sure hope all of you will have a safe happy love filled weekend. Today I share a quote with you from Christian D. Larson from his work Pathway of Roses."Pure soul loves love because it is love, and must love." Another from the Science of Mind page 478--The essence of love, while elusive, prevades everything, fires the heart, stimulates the emotions, renews the soul, and proclaims theSpirit. And lastly here is an affirmation from the SOM magazine--I am the love of God. I love my life just the way it is. Love is the healing balm that makes all things new. I am love itself.

If we dont particularly like what we are seeing in our lives being made manifested maybe its time for us to take a serious look at what we are envisioning for ourselves. True there are many reasons why we see things as they are and there are many circumstances beyond our control that makes up our daily lives.But for all teh major things we desire we are our own designers whether we do it consciously or unconsciously. There are so many incipient things that are just now being made manifest by our unconscious mind. That is why we all need to take a close look at whatwe truly are telling ourselves every waking moment. When one gets tired of allowing life to happen to us as it wants and instead takes direction or vision for the kind of life they want, then one will find that inner peace and contentment. A higher vision is already within all of us, all we need do is call upon this vision to act as we would have it to do. Keep on smiling and try your absolute best to nurish this innate inner vision and watch your life change in so many great ways. The best wishes to all of you in your personal search. I leave you with a quote from Helen Keller--"The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision."

Its great to realize that we are all born free in this world. I know some may disagree with that statement as it seems some of us are born into lives where we are not really free. But I truly believe that no matter ones circumstances they can attain complete freedom using the innate power of their minds. But then again freedom can be such a fragile thing for all of us. There are lots of folks right here in the USA who are born into freedom but because they harbor so many fears within their minds they cannot really be called free. Freedom does come with a cost as does anything worthwhile in this life. To be really free we must learn to let go of our inner fears and live life with a gusto and appreciation of all that this life has to offer. I will say I believe there are a few people in prisons who are really more free than some other folks simply because they have faced their fears headon and are now trying to get their life in order. Too many of us imprison our own minds with fears of destruction, lack of all kinds, ill health etc etc. To be free one must first die to the illusions of anything or anyone being better than they are. As Marianne Williamson puts it--"As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others." And from the Science of Mind Textbook--So man (women) must be created with the possibility of limitless freedom and let alone to discover themself. I also share with you the following affirmation from the SOM magazine--I am free to create a life of abundant good. I am free to live my life in joy. I am free to love unconditionally. Today, I choose freedom.
My most sincere hope is that each of you are living a life filled with much peace, joy, and freedom! Be safe my friends and keep on smiling!

Of all the things Ive lost I miss my mind the most! I use that saying quite often it seems ,why I dont know, but it just seems to fit so easily with me. Now I got to thinking that we as humans have the most wonderful capability of changing our minds to make it ANYTHING we want it to be.Just think about that for a moment or two. Its so amazing when we realize that this is not only possibile but true more oftten than not. As humans we tend to stick with what we know rather than change to some other thinking simply because its easier to remain where we are than to change our direction.Just for a moment think of all the amazing inventions that human minds have come up with. Why its mind boggling the things we now take for granted that only a few years ago were unheard of things. And these inventions came from minds that were opened up and changed rather than sticking to the status quo. Now you may argue that you are not an inventor but I would have to strongly disagree with ya on that one! You creat different things every moment with your mind. Granted the things you create may not be an invention that changes humanity but it does create things that change you. So Im thinking if we all have the same ability to create, why dont more of us use this power to make our minds one that we can use to help change the world in apositive way? Just think about it for a bit and se if you agree with what Im talking about.If this doesnt make any sense at all to you dont feel bad cause at times I dont really undrstand what Im saying any way.But with these thoughts in mind I leave you with a couple of borrowed items from very inspired writers. The first comes from the New Testament Romans 12:2 .... be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind... and the second comes fromthe Science of Mind Textbook page 486.."Instead of the old concepts of disease and failure, we are to inject those of liberty, freedom, health, harmony, and success."
Bless your hearts and your minds my friends. Be safe and may you really enjoy the weekend ahead.

This would seem to be easy for us to do--that is take responsibility for whatever we are experiencing in our lives-- but I have found it isn't always easy to do so. It can be real easy to accept responsibility when things are going the way we want them to but when things are happening that we consider negative that is when we tend to try and find something else to blame it on instead of accepting that responsibility also. I suppose it is human nature to place blame but I know from experience that never aids us in any way to correct the negative events in our lives.Even if things do happen that we have no control over we still have the ability to use our minds to overcome the negatives instead of trying our best to find someone or something else to blame. Its not easy admitting that our thoughts or actions are the problems we are facing but underneath all the why me poor old me feelings etc there lies within us the power and the ability to accept responsibility for our thoughts and our actions which will aid us in overcoming any thing negative in our lives no matter where they came from or why they happened at all. I use a quote from Les Brown who once said:"If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams." And from the Science of Mind comes the quote "THe One Infinite Life and Substance is the only Life and Substance in existence; and this Life and this Substance is my Life now." An affirmation I take from SOM magazine is this : Right now I take the time to feel what it is that Spirit would create through me. Today I say yes to me."

Hi friends. I sure hope all of you had a wonderful and safe new year's eve and that the year has started off exactly as you would have it do. Now that the holidays are over we can all once again get on with our daily lives but hopefully we can continue to carry with us the warmth and love the holiday season brought us. Today I will share with you a couple of thoughts on our being "ONE" The first is from Buddha--"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." The other quote comes from the Science of Mind textbook-- When we know our oneness with God and Law, what a great burden is removed.
I sincerely hope and pray that this year will be the best one ever for all of you. May God bless you and yours and may that ol sun keep shining down on your backdoor!
