We can learn a lot from nature! Ants, for instance; they always know their goal and work tirelessly toward accomplishing it. They work in harmony with each other. They work relentlessly, sometimes carrying seemingly impossible loads! We can learn from them! The common pencil can teach us lessons, also! It always makes a mark on its target. However, it is always guided by a hand. Sometimes it needs to be sharpened. Its mistakes can be erased! It is the pencil’s interior that does the work. Does this sound like Truth in action? WE, can know our goal of awakening to the Christ within, work tirelessly, in harmony with others on that path, releasing our mistakes, allowing the indwelling hand of God to guide us, sometimes “sharpening” us, until we – radiating the Christ, our True I AM – make our mark on the world!

Whether we realize it or not we ARE praying about everything; our thoughts, our words and our actions are forms of prayer. Whatever we attach energy to becomes a prayer. The problem is that, forgetting we are the Christ — one with all — we criticize this thing or that person and that prayer becomes OUR experience. Emerson wrote that, “Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.” Now, having lived the lesson of answered prayers of negativity, we can reclaim our Truth, and pray from the knowingness that we are the Christ, children of the Most High, and that all Good is ours this moment. All we have to do is claim, through prayer, giving praise and thanks, and be open to receiving.
We were told by Jesus that we are the “light of the world.” For sure, we are the light of our own world; of our own experiences. It is to this light that we are speaking when we refer to the Life-Fire! Every fire must have fuel to continue burning brightly. If we are to live the lives we wish to live, we must stoke the indwelling fire with thoughts and words of life, love, health and prosperity! We are invited, this week, to be conscious of how we are thinking, of those things we are secretly expecting, etc. Expect the best! Principle works!
Everybody makes mistakes. Most of the time, they are inconsequential. Some, however, can last a lifetime, causing both physical, mental and emotional pain. Enter the Cosmic Eraser! This spiritual tool of denial and release can free us from the errant illusions that we have created for ourselves; free us to shine forth in the Truth of our Being, as children of God, living from, and giving of, that strongest, highest, most peaceful and beautiful, of ourselves! This week, we are invited to take it out and use it on those old “not-good-enough,” “it’ll-never-happen-for-me” “I-just-can’t-forgive” thoughts! Time to set ourselves free!!
A prophet has a message! A priest informs and creates sacred space! And a king/queen reigns in wisdom! You, in this very moment, are your own prophet, priest and king! You are be bearer of the Good News, the creator of that space of receptivity and the executor of the gifts of Spirit. God’s creation is already perfect. The pain and suffering we experience exist only in mind. It was created by our fear of our own divinity! Faith — God’s gift, imparted to you — is already enough! We can and must make the decision to USE it to its fullest! We can accept this higher calling — prophet, priest and king/queen of our own consciousness — and live the Truth of our Being! In so doing, we will be working in partnership with the Most High, our success guaranteed!
Per Abraham (Esther & Jerry Hicks), “As you change the way you feel, you access the Energy that creates worlds.” We attract to ourselves those people, things and circumstances that are in harmony with our energy. If we are unsatisfied with our lives — more importantly, if we dwell in that dissatisfaction — we will continue to draw the same into our experience. However, if we will raise our energy, through visualizing those things we desire as being ours, NOW, and giving thanks NOW (Faith, the conviction of things not seen. –Heb. 11:1), we will be amazed at how efficiently Spirit works to increase our blessings!
The indwelling Christ of our Being shapes our world from the inside out: our “Christ Impact.” So many of us want to change the world, but we can only do that by changing OURSELVES! After all, you can’t give what you do not have. The sum of our thoughts — the ones we revisit and rehash — will manifest in our lives. Most of these thoughts, however, are based in Adam consciousness. It takes time and work and dedication to re-program our thoughts and raise them to that “heaven-on-earth” consciousness we all seek. Leaving all old resentments, fears, if-only’s and woulda-coulda-shoulda’s behind, we can then, and ONLY THEN, be the light that shines out into the world, lighting the way for others! And there will be a new heaven and a new earth, for us and for all!

The common cry, in today’s world seems to be, “I want it, and I want it now!” However, a field of daffodils, planted, one at a time over the span of may years by ONE woman, vividly shows the beauty that willingness, dedication and persistence will yield. The beauty had been in each buld, but it took some work to bring it into manifestation. We are encouraged, this week, to be aware that our thoughts — good and not-so-good — are like those bulbs, or like seeds, if you wish. When we plant them in consciousness and tend them consistently (re-thinking, repeatedly), they will bring forth first the blossom and then the fruit.
All roads lead to the light. We get to choose; the straight and narrow (Christ path), or the crooked, bumpy thorn-filled path (the scenic route)! How do we know how to choose? There are two ways; one through experience and the other through living the Truth that we are taught. Our life experiences will give the clues as to which path we’re on! Disharmony, illness, lack and limitation, etc., lie on the path of learning through experience. Health, abundance, peace and freedom, joy and harmony await on the Christ Path. This week, we are invited to live the Truth, watching every thought, word and action that they may be in harmony with our highest good.
We are chosen to be the Christ Presence in the world! (Eph. 1:4) However, our expression of this all-perfect Christ Presence that we are can only be as big as our idea/understanding. We are, in a way, like goldfish; they may range from a couple of inches to a foot or more in length–depending solely on the size of the pool in which they swim! We “swim” through life, in the manner and to the extent of the “pool” of consciousness we construct for ourselves! We are invited, this week to expand our ideas of self, of God, and of our divine relationship with the One, All-In-All.
