Palm Sunday

This coming week, which started with Palm Sunday is referred to as both Holy Week and Passion Week. We are invited, as we consider the events revealed in the Bible, to also remember that these stories are OUR stories!! Jesus entrance into Jerusalem was a definite “in your face” affront to the church elite! So, too, the Indwelling Christ Spirit goes against every one of our worldly beliefs! By our attachment to these beliefs, we daily “crucify” the TRUTH that Jesus taught! But, Truth cannot die; it IS! Even as Jesus demonstrated that death is not real, thereby nullifying the original sin of the belief in separation, our indwelling Christ WILL rise above all of our failures. We are invited to take up the “cross” (our responsibility) of nullification of error thought and resurrect our own conscious realization of our oneness with God; with absolute Good, Unconditional Love and Eternal Life! THIS is the TRUE passion inside of us that is waiting to reveal itself!

Divine Selfhood

Ever asked yourself, “What am I doing here?!!” If so, do not feel like the Lone Ranger! To question is natural! Why ARE we–all of us–here? We each answer this question, to different degrees, based on what WE think the WORLD thinks we are!! Again! We each answer the question, to different degrees, based on what WE think the WORLD thinks we are!! Then, we go about trying to fill that role much as an actor onstage! Then, at some point, if we are lucky, we find Truth! We find that we really are sons and daughters of the most high!! And, the journey–the DASH–homeward begins!! And, where IS this illusive “home?” WITHIN!! Right where the Christ, Jesus, said it was! We are divine! We are sacred! We are here to do the work and BE the presence of the Most High!! We are to be the FRUITS of Spirit’s ideas of Self!! The masks fall off!! The stage and the script completely change!! We find ourselves standing in light!! Not speaking from a pre-written script, but from deep down in our hearts, Truth, as we know it!! And, behind the scenes, the One, I Am that I Am —smiles!

Luck In Your Largest Life

Ah, the luck o’ the Irish!! We celebrate it on St. Patrick’s Day, every year! We claim good luck with four-leaf clovers and rabbits’ feet and any number of other “good luck” charms. Our faith in these may, indeed, produce some form of luck. But, what–really–IS this thing we call luck? Chance? God doing us a favor? As Truth students we have learned that everything in the universe happens according to Divine Order and Divine Law! We have learned, also that everything must partake of the nature of its cause. In layman’s terms, our thoughts–those we hold, consistently, in mind–produce after their kind! OUR THOUGHTS PRODUCE OUR “LUCK!!” When we put our faith, our belief, in a luck based on happenstance or chance, we relinquish our power! This week, we are invited to reclaim that power and attract ALL the Good that we desire by being AWARE of and DISCIPLINING our thoughts! Others will look at us and call us lucky, but we will know the TRUTH!!

Glimpses of Awareness

The Bible tells us that there is but ONE Life in ALL. In this knowing, we might ask ourselves, “What are we doing with our “share?” Do we truly know what we re, in Truth? Are we AWARE of the awesome power that is at our disposal at any moment in time? Are we aware of the monumental responsibility, to ourselves and to the world, to USE this Life, Love, Intelligence and Power that we ARE to the highest of our present capability? God can only do for us as we allow Him to do THROUGH us. The good news is that, as we become more self-aware, as we become more open and receptive to Spirit, our own Soul intelligence will lead us to higher, more loving, more joy-filled, fulfilling expressions of the Divinity that we are! However, this awareness does not come all at once, but, rather, in little bits and pieces, little “Aha’s!” according to our ability to process and use them to the higher good of all! We are ALL on an adventure into the greatest, most wonderful mystery!! This week, we are invited to enjoy the discoveries and the treasures that await us!
