Birthing The Miracle

“There is no false appearance but will fade, if you request a miracle instead.” ~ ACIM Ch30, VIII:6:5

“There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not “harder” or “bigger” than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal.”~ ACIM:Ch1,I, I,1.

These quotes from A Course In Miracles  inspired me to ask Jesus if he had any message as I sat down to write the blog about creating miracles that I posted last week...

“Dear One, the apparent order of difficulty in miracles comes alone from the perspective that life in the dual world is for Real. In effect this world you know as your own, is not Real, it is a projection of thoughts and ideas and emotions, and in tangible form it presides upon your bodies and your minds.

If, for example, there were no True Reality this dual world would not exist. This world exists only because of the True Reality that exists behind and within it all. Reality is changeless and formless. And allows the potential for form and change to be manifest.

If you were to examine the ways that you proceed with your life, you would notice that there is only a series of ideas and thoughts that flow through your mind continually.    They are what assist in the manifestation of this world and its response to your individual mind/body construct. And so your impulse to change that world is one that is important to understand and important to embrace from within the realm that it is Real (non-dual).

Within duality, there is form and motion and all the things of manifestation’s life.

In the Real world there is none of this. Not even a heavenly realm.

The Real World, is not a world at all, it is this Formless, Changeless, Untouchable and Untouched Reality that makes all of the manifest world possible.

The ‘place’ where these apparently two different realities: your dual projection and the untouchable Truth interface is not an interface at all in the physical sense, it is in the perceptual transformation of the dual into the non dual Truth… it is in residing as the non dual Truth while presiding over a body. If you hold this Non-dual Truth to be your reality, then the malleability of this dual world is within your grasp. Grasp is a poor word for there can be no grasping energy in this interaction. There can be only the realization that All is One, from this perspective there is no emotion of lack or little ness or not enough-ness. There is only complete wholeness, confidence, assurance and Love.

Love is foremost and love is what holds this experiential matrix of human life together.

You see as you create a reality of love or hate or animosity or frustration and your neighbor does the same, in an ever changing panoply of moments that cycle through a life, there is only Love that holds it together… your neighbor’s reality and yours are forever intertwined as they are the same One that you are. They preside over their body; it’s their first language so to speak. You may, as time goes on, learn the next language of the True Self. As you learn this second language, the language of Love not hate, the language of Unity not separation, as this becomes fluent, then the miracle of relationship with this world changes. You are then in an identity where you preside over the choosing, the projection and thus the movie you both live within is changed. As the movie of your life, and your neighbor’s life changes, the world is transformed.

Lift your sights and all is different. In realities of choice, such as you live within, you are bound to choose, and when you choose the Miracle, the way of being that is coursing forth into the consciousness of humans now, there is a potential for the out picturing of the human reality to be changed, to be uplifted. To be transformed. Not in an instantaneous way but in a gradual way. As subtle shifts in perspective and morals take form, the world is gently and unerringly changed. As your perspective lifts from ideas of ‘impossible’ to the realization of ‘possibility’ then it is a golden day that is ahead.

The Miracle as you know it and have experienced it, is not to be poo pooed as impossible, or chalked up as a fairy tale. So much is possible for the human who knows it is not a human at all! We who live entrenched in old ideas of lack, end up becoming lack luster. We who live in the reality of possibility and potential find that our world presents possibilities to us.

In sharing these words, it is hoped that you will find in these lines, something of that eternal knowing, that like a long handle on a sticky valve, gives the leverage that allows movement where there was no movement before.

Hold forth in True form, True understanding and True Light bearing, for you are the Self. You are that which is never born, never dies, never ever was touched by what has happened to the body or this world. The essential Awareness that occurs in your life, is the True you. The True and only I/ You… Whole and Complete. No injury can touch or consume it, except if you allow yourself to believe it can (for you are not just your body).

You are the power and the glory that is possible on this Earth, and for that reason you are presented with the power to heal, the power to transform, the power to create, as the True Self embodied in this life. You know the challenges well, you have researched them well enough!

Now is the time to research the aspects of your creator-ship that are Holy, that are Whole.

Research the Miracle potential of your life. Allow the Miracle to occur, allow the fullness of who you are to out picture into your world. It has been said that it is no greater miracle to create a button or a castle, allow these to be your watchwords for the coming days, the coming weeks, the coming times,

for your thoughts are possibly the most potent force on your Earth

and for this reason we call forth you who read this to be empowered,

to bring forth your vision of yourself as ONE God, Whole, Holy, Unborn and Untouched, Unconcerned and unwilling (unable) to be drawn down by any manifestation in the physical world within it.

Lift yourself to this One True Reality in thought word and deed and all is drawn forth from higher realms of manifestation for your use… your work… for your out picturing.

We thank you for listening, for reading, for holding this in your heart as you observe yourself throughout your day. The Miracle awaits your birthing of her.

Good Day.”

Creating Miracles… the I AM and the I AIN’T!

  • A quote from
  • A Course In Miracles… from the Manual For Teachers 22:1

Healing and Atonement are not related; they are identical. There is no order of difficulty in miracles because there are no degrees of Atonement. It is the one complete concept possible in this world, because it is the source of a wholly unified perception.”

  • “I am willing to do this the miracle way.” 
  • That’s what I have been saying lately. I’ve had a busy and miracle-filled summer, my son got married in my backyard, I put my house on the market, found and bought a new house in a new state, and hosted a retreat weekend. At each turn and transition I flowed with it, and when I noticed myself slogging, or thinking something was going to be hard, I would say out loud:
  • “I am willing to do this the miracle way.” 
  • To say this phrase it is like a window opening up into a stuffy situation. I immediately feel a sense of possibility and movement. In saying I am WILLING to do this the miracle way,  am inviting the whole of creation to be on my team, and that brings with it a host of potentials I cannot even yet imagine. My willingness was fluid, I was even keeled and steady all summer, I was not caught up in anything that appeared and that needed to be dealt with. (Except the time I drank a Pina Colada and the massive refined sugar load hijacked my equanimity and I became irritated!) For the most part, I was the person I have been wanting to be all my life.
  • So I wanted to share this miracle inviting formula so you might play around with it a bit yourself.
  • A few miracle-assisting rules of thumb have been gleaned from this summer:
  • * Keep your vibration high, your attitude light and visit the Lightfield if you can! I have been going to the Lightfield several times a week and it is a huge gift to my higher Self, my equanimity and my inspired mind!    Or Listen to some spiritual music or your favorite teacher, or someone like Abraham Hicks, or Dr Joe Dispenza. Avoid the mass media. Get out in nature. Relax and have fun!
  • * Ask for help when you need help.There is no need to suffer in silence alone.  “I am willing to do this, (see / experience this) the miracle way.”
  • Miracles can come from anywhere because they are literally everywhere by definition. When I get miraculous help, what gets done, received and resolved is far beyond what I’d hoped for. Jesus told Hetty once:

“you as for crusts of bread when I would give you the whole loaf.”

  • * Follow through with bold inspired thoughts. Notice new thoughts and ideas, and don’t discount them as impossible.
  • When the idea of inviting people to help me unpack dropped into my mind, it scared me, I thought it was a bit presumptuous. In the spirit of Miracles are everywhere, I was empowered to do it anyway…
  • When I invited friends to an Unpacking Party the day after I moved at my new home, 10 people showed up. The house got put in order to the extent of even hanging up my tv and getting me a Netflix account! The house was blessed and seeded with the energy of my friends, with good food, with the community and connections they created and most of all with the love they all brought. Without the miracle attitude, I would have buckled down and done it myself,  but with the miracle attitude, it was so much lighter and easier and way more fun.
  • * You don’t have to know how your request will birth a miracle! It’s best to be completely open to all potentials when you ask. You need to be able to recognize a miracle when it happens, if you have an idea what it has to look like, you may completely miss it.
  • * The miracle is the I AM in action,
  •                                    the slogging human is the I AIN’T in action.
  •   Know the difference!  Recognize when you need to say the phrase  “I am willing to do this the miracle way”  and be able to say it with lightness, possiblity, wonder and vision.
  • *With the knowing that this is a non-dual, world appearing as duality miracles become natural.

    And thus are miracles as natural as fear and agony appeared to be before the choice for holiness was made. For in that choice are false distinctions gone, illusory alternatives laid by and nothing left to interfere with truth.” ACIM Ch 31, VIII,5:6-7

  • It is in remembrance of our True situation here, that our lives are blessed with miracles. We are all One life, One body, One human, all pretending to be otherwise. The I AM is who we are, the I AIN’T is who we have been. Miracles come as we step aside and allow the I AM to bring miracles into our lives.
  • May you be blessed with the capacity to receive and become the Miracle of Love that you are.
  • Blessings~ Hope / Freedom

A Vision On The River Path

I was walking along the river path on a sunny afternoon, looking ahead at four people and their dogs walking ahead of me.

A portal of clear sight opened up somehow and I became aware of the ONE, the substrate of existence… or That which holds everything… and the ONEness that is behind/within/around everything became perceptible.

All the forms walking ahead of me were just mirage-like  hollow shells, filled with and walking within this Oneness.

I could see how this world is projected, how the people and their movement were just like a holographic movie on the screen of the Oneness that we are.

As I contemplated this portal of clarity, I realized that it is only occurring in this present moment of now, there is no past, no future, there is just what is being apparently projected right now.

So walking along the path, on that sunny afternoon, I could there is no actual movement occurring. Nothing Real was actually moving. And that the things that were moving were like a mirage.

I love these visions, outside of the usual 3D perspective, they stay with me and help me to remember who I Truly Am. I am that substrate, or that screen that the movie is projected upon.

So what happens on the screen doesn’t actually limit me or even touch me in any way. It doesn’t affect me and cannot hurt me. I am not the body.

How I see the world makes all the difference, my knowledge of who I am is like a portal of clarity that is available to me. It needs no experience to make it real. (Check out www.shiningworld.com for resources to study this profound knowledge of Vedanta.)

When I hold my vision steady on what is behind it all, My Self the One, everything is delightfully different.

I asked if there was anything to add to this…

Beloved Ones, as the human is embraced into this Oneness there is a shift that comes to all in its indoctrination within this Unified and Holy perspective.

Not seeing through the One’s eyes, one is separated and isolated and alone.

As the vision is cultivated of the One, the understanding is embraced and the actions thus formed within the human life are of a different quality and order,

and with this we embrace all of life in a unique and loving manner… fully  whole, fully filled, fully of the great generic and Holy Divine order of life,

there is so much grace that may fill ones’s mind in this knowing.

Enjoy the vision , and walk with the presence of that One.

Namaste!  Happy Summer Solstice.

Jesus’ Easter Message 2018

Dear Ones, It is with great joy that I greet you on this blessed day. Our work upon this Earth is no different than in days and years past, and yet it has a different flavor in its way. You see these times upon this Earth are what all have been waiting for. These times are the times of pivotal and lasting change that will become the hallmark of your time, in that the whole of life will be oriented in a way counter to its focus in the past. In Truth, there is no work to be done in the outer world, as much as in the inner realms of your own most sacred and blessed Self. The human family is asked in these times to become the Self that is their True Self, the Self that knows itself to be divine, that is present to the realization that All Is One here. If this minute and monumental shift is made within each, the rest of the manifestation shall take care of itself easily, naturally and with great speed.

It is not that things are wrong, and that the human family has been misguided, it is that the energy and frequency of the Earth are now ready to accommodate this shift that those of you on the spiritual path have been readying yourself for. The time is now. The Earth is ready, like a dog crouching to jump across a stream of swiftly running water, the Earth has awaited this time, as have you, and it is now upon us to leap! Not in a way of fear and trepidation but in a way of celebration and joyful relief. We have made the journey to this time and place in human history and this is a great benefit to us all. For the Earth, our treasured hostess and source of physical life, is present to this shift and leading us upon the new road. The Earth is shaking and shifting, and cleansing and clearing, wiping clean and building up, and our job is to stay with her, to tend to each other and the work at hand, from the realization that she is like a ship amidst the vast ocean of this universe, and she is ours to tend to and Love, as we would a ship we rely upon in the middle of a vast ocean. Keep her ship shape, make sure she is well repaired and cared for, inspect her systems, to see they are operating well, and above all tend your mates upon the ship, your fellow travelers upon this journey of life upon Earth.

It has been said that “All is One”, and this is True. It will not be a sensed feeling unless the actions to fulfill its Truth are made manifest first. So you must act and then your heart and your soul and your willing hands will feel the tender kindness of that decision from the clarity of Unity. Upon Easter, and upon the brink of a new era upon this earth, there is only the task you find yourself tending to right now to concern yourself with. As the focus is upon the Unity of all life, and upon the brotherhood and sisterhood of manKIND, then the systems and great creative force that animates and empowers all life and all action will be the organizing power behind this great change. One vast centralizing government is not required in the halls of man, for there is the natural and innate power within all that is the conduit to this energy and opportunity of life. The first and most important step is to see the Self in the other and the other in yourSelf; Simple, powerful, and important for the human birthing to the new era being brought forth now upon this Earth and in our Solar System.

We thank you, and offer our great love and healing for those in difficulty, and say Namaste we ARE One. And so it is.                                                                       March 29, 2018

Jesus’ Easter Message from 2012, Re-Posted

I was asked to repost this message from 2012, enjoy! Happy Easter. Hope

Dear One, You are so funny, imagining that I am more busy today. Being Easter. More people at attention to my name and energy perhaps, but no I am no more busy today than usual. It is an interesting thing that the life that is lived as Jesus is thus, no more is there a concern with earthly limitations, and busy is an earthly limitation. Time limitation creates busy. OR perceived time limitation creates busy-ness, as though what is being done is not reason enough for doing it, and that judgment demands that it be done quickly to get it over with and thus the busy ensues. Everything that is possible to do on planet earth has an inherent opportunity within it. Each pastime, endeavor and work is meant to be in its own way and wisdom flows from its doing. So in busy-ness there is an assumption that the next thing is more worthy than THIS thing and hence the out of time aspect of life ensues. IT is not meant to be like that on earth. Earth is a place for choice and awareness of options, but to be sacrificing what is occurring right now, for a better something that will happen afterwards, which is what being busy is about, is not worth the trip to human body… Not worth the sacrifice of time and energy, the payment is too high for such a plan to be enacted… so there is my response to your innocent human idea of what Jesus might experience on Easter. Namaste. We speak in great love and amusement for you and the whole idea. (twinkle in his eye).
May I ask a question, or do you wish to simply proceed as usual?
Ask away.
Easter, Good Friday, the rock, the resurrection, your true body of flesh vs your spiritual body that is inter dimensional… Please tell me the story that your human life experienced at the “end” of it.
My oh my, dear one, you surprise me, never before interested in such things, but here goes. My life as a human was paid for dearly as the embodied Christ. The God as self-expression held itself within my body system and thus I was no longer subject to the laws of human flesh, this transcendence of human fleshly and bodily laws came at great sacrifice in apparent suffering as the body of Jesus was hung on the cross. My focus was solely upon the God that I am in that entire event, which was a herculean effort, and thus enabled the transcendence of the human laws. The body that I am and was, was laid down in the cave and rested. Post event the body was resurrected and thus the arisen self, the self fully embodied as the Christ transcended beyond re-entry to human life body in the old sense, subject to the old laws, or the laws that humans now subject themselves to, these laws could no longer touch me, for my focus held so strongly upon the divine, the father, the grace the spirit transported me to the realms of transcendent human spiritual life and thus the different experience of life on Earth ensued. A life on Earth now occurs for me that is both earthly and inter dimensionally strategic. I am no longer limited by Earth’s laws as YOU know and experience them, I am now experiencing life in an inter-dimensional transcendent way. It is so much simpler this way, and so much more is possible. You see life as a human is filled with the choices of focus and effort, and ways to be, the life as I now know it is filled with only the God that I am and know you to be. So I see only one thing as I look from these eyes. I know you as God, I know all things as God and thus it is much simpler.
For you the practice is to cultivate seeing and being the God that you truly are. The God that all are. The holy sacred self exists all around you, and as you see this, recognize this, know this and live this you transcend the earthly limitations of the body that you now inhabit. IT is like a golden staircase that you must travel. No one can do it for you, you must do it yourself. Of your own vision and will it is possible. It is available to all people of all faiths and ways, and is not simply the way and road to salvation it is what was envisioned for Man upon Earth from the start. And so the chance to return there, as I have done, is the message and work of my life. And so it is. I’ve left the light on… awaiting your arrival! Namaste we are ONE. And so it is.
I do these early in the morning, and today I lay back down and was thinking of Easter and the inherent energy of this day and the opportunity of the energy of this day, and I thought to ask…
Jesus what is the promise of the day Easter?
The promise of the day Easter, is the promise of each and every day, that the arisen Christ within you is manifest in form and function in your life. IT is that the world as you have known it, the world that has grasped you, and held you captive in so many ways, by your own focus and ideas of limitation and your definition of reality, these things have held you in ways that have hurt and harmed, and been the cause of much suffering, and what Easter holds for you and so many others is the chance to look beyond the physical “reality” to the potential created reality of heaven on Earth: the human opportunity to transcend the physical realm AS YOU KNOW AND EXPERIENCE it. In transcending what is meant is that your body is different as your focus becomes singular to God alone. As ALL THINGS in your sight become the GOD that you are and know, then the new world awakens within your cells, your sight: your reality is different. Your wisdom is Christ or God’s wisdom, and your thought is God’s thought. You needn’t be subject to your little self’s ideas or thoughts in the same way, and thus the day of Easter and the life of a Christ exhibit certain qualities that are available to all every day, but perhaps are a unified focus upon this day of Easter. So the invitation to see all , and know all as yourself, as the all-potent powerful present and manifest God self that you are, this is Easter’s gift and message. Rebirth to the new (yet truly old) reality of the Christ alive as you on Earth. Namaste we are one and so it is. I await YOUR presence here with me, and the celebration is NOW.

A Valentine From The Self

I wonder what the One SELF That We All Are might say in a Valentine to us?

It could be kind of hard actually, The Self and us all being already united as one,

there is no longing, no pining or divorce, because we, the Self are Love itself!

But just for the sake of duality, and playing the game of this magnificent projection

here is a message that our OneSelf might write to us on Valentine’s day… so here goes.

Roses are red, violets are blue,

you are in me and I am in you.

As One, we are bound for now and forever

There is no greater Union or tighter tether!

The Earth is our ship as we sail across time,

A delight and a joy as you remember you are Mine.

 Think of me as you walk,  think of me as you talk,

And especially remember my Love when you balk!

A wandering eye is not possible here

for I Am all you can see or can hear.

Be mine in the challenge as well as the sweet

and know that It, You and I are alway and ever complete.

For Awareness, Consciousness, the Self  there is no such thing as far

so open those chocolates, LOVE is who we are!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dear One,

Beholding the unity of all things is a great blessing.

Choosing to see only that fine thread of the origin and Source in all beings,

all creatures, and all material substance is what heals and what frees.

If you find yourself caught up in the world of change, of contrast

and of discordancy within it ~

look for that which animates and makes it all possible.

The beggar becomes a king, the smallest things become

beautiful and precious, and all that lies before you is made holy.

All it requires is your choice to see as you are seen ~

with Love and Unity as your only desire.

For you will see what you look for and the Kingdom of God, of Source…

is all One, never truly divided ~ only apparently so!

That is all.

The Substance Of Love

Love is the glue and mortar of Life. It holds and fills, binds and connects the Life that we are as the Source Of All. It is not something that comes and goes, it is steady and solid. If we notice this, there is an opportunity that is otherwise lost. It is the opportunity to align with Love and formulate a world that is in peaceful acknowledgement of its foundation in Love.

We offer a system to make this possible, so that you might cultivate the capacity to know this Love. By feeling around for Love within, one may feel the Heart is its source. Most things of this physical world seem to have a limitation in quantity, but of Love there is an endless supply, drawing ever from within its Divine Source in the Heart. Love need not be measured or parceled out stingily, there is no limit to its quantity. It is like a geyser, with an unending capacity to pour forth. Continue reading

Thanks-giving

Thanks-giving, Gratitude, Gr-atitude, Great-attitude or perhaps God’s-Real-Attitude.

What do we actually appreciate when we give Thanks at this time of year?

We honor the Earth for her bounty, the harvest that feeds and clothes us.

We honor our friends and family for their presence and enrichment of our lives.

We honor the world that we live within, the greater human family, the neighborhood,          the town, the state, the country, or the communal structure that we live as a part of.

We Thank God or the Creator or the Self That We All Are. The True Source of all.

We may stop there,  but there is one more step to take for True Gratitude and Thanks-giving. It is the remembrance that there is only One of us that sits at the table. Continue reading

What Is Liberty?

As I walked past my painting of the Statue of Liberty in my studio, I was struck with the question : What is Liberty?

Liberty is  many things including freedom. Freedom to do and be what we wish. There are different levels of freedom, sourced from different levels or frequencies of life. Understanding what they are helps us to uncover a deeper Truth.  The Unshakable Truth that True freedom and True Liberty that are built upon. Continue reading
