So relating to a topic that's come up a little bit. And this morning, one of you approached me and asked me to address this topic a little bit I've talked about this a little bit before the topic of faith or the topic of trust. We have to make it clear that trust and faith are kind of similar topics in a sense, you could say "What can we trust in like most people are thinking...
Well, I trust God. Okay, well that's a good affirmation. Some of us, but not all of us, say, "I trust myself." I mean, some of us go... "No, no man, no way after the things I've created in my life." But most of us don't trust everyone else. Most of us can say, "We trust God," you know, maybe all of us, hopefully all of us, but certainly most of us, and a lot of us trust ourselves, but some not, but almost none of us really can say we trust every other person, every single one of them.
And what we do is we start to use what's called discernment and we justify it. Well, "Now you can't trust everyone Michael, that's a bit nnaïve" So it gets a little bit tricky, because without this concept of faith, you can't trust and without trust, you will not see healthy results in your life.
In other words, we've all learned to justify the fact that we have what we call discernment, but decision that some people can't be trusted and we think, "Well if I build up enough case against them then other people will agree that they can't be trusted and then I don't feel so bad.
So they are a jerk, a burning Greek. They can't be trusted. You have a whole group to say, you know how men are, you know how this person is you know, that type of all these, but they're just judgments again. Imagine that God is saying, and it is And Jesus taught us this too, when he says, "Don't say you love God and hate your neighbor by hate your neighbor you can cope.
I don't this or really hate them, I just don't trust them as far as I could throw them. But that still means the same thing. So use that example that you can't say that you love God while still distrust in any single human being and that sounds kind of harsh. You're telling us Yes I am. He says that, Through people you're having your relationship with God because God isn't like here right now, you're not having a conversation with God, you're not sitting there going, God, you know, and having a dialogue, you want some tea, it's not sitting there, people
are... So, to know how we're doing with God, you will learn that by how we do with each other and that seems like a really screw way to test. That's a terrible litmus test. You we go. Well, God you don't understand that that's unfair. People are messed up. I love you but don't use people as the barometer so to speak.
The measure of how I love God 'cause I love God, but people are messed up and we're learning and God tried to tell us this and many generations, and through many profits, you know, that our relationship with God is actually mirrored in others. And most of us can't accept and believe that. Alright, that's too much to believe.
Then let's try this. The three relationships you can have or with God-self and others, if you don't believe that your relationship with God is being reflected through others then how about at least accepting that your relationship with yourself, your opinion of yourself are going to be reflected in your relationships with the other people? Some people still would say no, 'cause I like myself, it's just people I don't like, but you can't keep getting away with that.
Well, you can try but do we wanna go with out or do we wanna actually hear the truth. And the truth is we have to learn to have faith and it'll sound kind of fundamental Christian in the Lord, but I wanna have faith in God. All right, but do you see that? Can you measure that faith? Well, yeah, I pray to God and I trust God.
Yeah, but when things don't happen, you still get met, so that faith isn't really that long lasting so be honest about it. So maybe that one is too invisible for me to check out how about my relationship with myself? We have to have faith in a relationship with God and faith with self and faith with others, but clearly there are things we can't trust and what we have to learn to do is know the difference.
You're not asked to trust untrustworthy things you're asked to trust in the trustworthy parts of people and that's your out. All you have to do is learn to recognize. I may not be able to get it to materialize right now in this moment, but I have faith that every single human being has a spark of God.
I may not get to see it, I may not know how to bring it out of them, and who is incapable me instead of going Well, if only they would behave in a way that I like, then I would see the divinity. Well, that's not divinity. That's controlled again, very you. Let's just say everybody's annoying, just start there instead of going.
Well, most people, I like enough to start working on the ones I don't just start with everybody's annoying at one point or another. Are our beautiful people, they play their music to like it's always gonna be something. So start there. Everybody potentially can be annoying. We know that, but can you accept...
And I'm saying to start there, not to be negative, I'm saying start there, because then I say... Now, I've hit bottom and I can't go any lower. Once I said, Everybody's annoying, you can't go much further than that. So now from here, it's only up and from here, I am going to also work on affirming that even though people can be annoying, it's not so annoying that I cannot affirm the light in them.
I just call it annoying, it's just, it's off, it's something I don't know how to wrap my mind around no matter who it is, or what they've done, and people on earth have done some horrible things, but it's a fact that if someone could have brought out of that person perfect, pure light of God, they could not have done the things they did.
It's impossible for someone to bring out their light and then act hurt fully it's impossible. So what happens is, instead of choosing which people do like not like that's just human, see it "own it" and then choose to let that go try something else. Anybody can sit there and pick who they like and don't like.
But that's called Control. I'm still discerning what I think is healthy and not healthy. I'm gonna go one step further. We can say to ourselves, I'm gonna go one step further, I'm going to do the spiritual thing and say, although people can act annoying and so, all beings have a spirit Spark.
God presence inside of them and I'm going to do what I can to see it, when I can't see it. It's called losing faith. Yeah, the faith is not just this thing we think have faith in the Lord. 'cause if you could see God right now, and say, "Okay God, let me make sure I got this. I'm supposed to have faith in you, I promise you, God would not say Yes, God would say Yes and you will demonstrate that in your faith with each other and then you'll go with...
That's not bar 'cause people are... And they lost it again. God is saying, You cannot tell me You have faith in me if you don't have faith in each other. Well, that's not true because people behave no way to minute if you have faith in me, God, then you'll have faith that I created every one with light in them, don't, don't mess with me or God's gonna go.
You know, I know you better than you know yourself, and I know what tactics you're gonna play here. Yeah, but constantly. And I'm telling you, this is God, God's gonna say, I'm telling you, if you really do have faith then you would say God is this weird then no matter how people act, it doesn't change the fact that God put light in them, if you really trust God, then you'll be able to say that that's how perfect is is that's how simple this is.
Now, if I have faith that God is God is I am we are, that's the law. God is love, that means I am love. And I would feel more of that if it weren't for others as to become God, as I am. And we are. And you can say you're still allowed and encouraged to say, Yeah, but gosh, you know people, I just say it, get it out and then come back to the truth.
People are annoying people can be hurtful isn't that weird that people can be so hurtful but still in others? There is a perfect light. I am determined to see that light when Helen shuck man, wrote of course in miracles, and started, you know, channeling of course of miracles, she, she was going to work again, she was part of a very prestigious board in a hospital in New York and, and she was, you know, off to the meeting, she's whether friend and she said, "Oh God, you know what I hate these meetings, I hate these meetings, everybody's just always yelling and judging.
And now it's a hospital. So one group will say, "Well we want a motion that we could a raise, we want to get people... We want to get grants for our wing of the hospital. Someone else will say, "Well what makes you think you should get it? We should get it. We've been here longer yes, but our disease is worse than your disease.
And they just fight. She said, "I hate it. See, it's okay to start with that. However, she said, "There's got to be another way besides the bickering and the ego stuff. And that means like the whole universe froze waiting for it. Way for it. A human's almost ready for a miracle. She said There must be another way it's still not happening at the miracle is postal universe.
All the angels go home and there's this like Wow, freezes to create something new. If we stay the course. Her friend or partner said, I think you're right, and I am determined to find that other way with you, in that moment, the miracle came about because two people, two or more gathered with one holy purpose to find the presence of God, even though it wasn't there.
Now, you have to understand, it's when we're communicating, we still have issues. And they still had issues, they didn't walk in and go. Hi everyone, guess what, we prayed. And so, something amazing, an amazing is gonna happen. You're all gonna be nicer. That's not what happened, what happened was, they went in and everybody was still annoying, but they responded differently.
Someone would say. Well, I want a motion that we get you know, great for our wing you know what they did, they go: You're probably right. Why don't we try... And look into that, they're like... So really, nobody's ever been validated then they would say, "Well okay, well thank you then somebody else does.
Well, they get it. We should get it. You're right. Well, I wonder if there's a way that we can get you a race to or a grant to validation not ego-validation, but validation, love and support. I've done this many times, but you know, it's not always gonna be just like you say, some initial words and everything just goes peachy, it might, but sometimes people still will behave the way people be at the body.
If you go in here. I was praying on the way in, hoping for a miracle. But apparently you... People are undeserving, then that means you lost faith in them again, do you see what I mean, by that? You're not holding the truth that they have good in them, if somebody has the guts to bring it out, but people don't have the guts now, if you don't have the guts to pull it out of them if you don't have the where-with-all what it means is nothing bad, it just means you're hurt, it's all it means you reacted, you ticked me off now, I reacted and I didn't
maintain that thing I was praying for, but you know why, 'cause I'm too raw. I'm too triggered I'm not healed, enough to handle this. If that happens to you own it, going it. I wish I could have just one there a little bit longer, just see it and then know that you can do better next time.
All the stuff that we used to hear, and preach, and recite from Bible and so forth, that's all gone. 'cause if you can't live in, it's all worthless. The words are just absolutely worthless if you don't live them, which is why Jesus made that point that I've come to fulfill this material not to talk about it.
People talk about these things all the time, "Have faith in the Lord and the Lord says, "Have faith in each other and we have a rebuttal. Well now because people are messed up and God says really then you don't have faith in me. Like you said, you did see how that... Amazing that is. No, no, I think it's easier to just say the words, "I have faith in the Lord do I think it's easy to say but think about this, this is spiritual work, this is light work, so it's not as easy as...
As saying the words. I have faith in the Lord, I trust the Lord and yet if God's gonna turn it back on us, we're immediately gonna hit the mud driving a hundred miles an hour all of a sudden everything sobers up, and we go. Oh my God, you mean with each other? Yes, that's right. Even yes, yes, even them.
Yeah, but no them to all of them, yeah. But you know what, they've done yet. No exceptions, any body that we would ever try to justify as being undeserving of our trust and faith. Not in their humanness, 'cause they're not human, they just seem like it for now. There's a spirit spark in them but as soon as we lose that faith as soon as we think one person's undeserving all it has done.
Is confirmed that there is a part in us that we still judge and find undeserving. I think everybody's deserving of love and peace and happiness except control freaks you've just affirmed that that's how harsh you are, on your thoughts about yourself as a control-free God you poor thing, you all right, what do you mean a mile? Right? Yeah, I'm fine.
Well, 'cause you just affirmed that. Control freaks, are undeserving of level. They are. Oh, sorry to hear that, are you all right? They're gonna think you're nuts. But you know what I'm saying, there, 'cause you've just said unwilling to forgive anybody of anything which means all parts of myself, except that one.
My God, you see what I'm saying. It confirms there's a part in you that you think is so dark and undeserving. I don't think that yes, you do was confirmed when you pointed it out in another. Look at the words, pointed it out, outwards in another, it's called projection. I pointed it out in them that didn't mean it wasn't in me, I tried to just get it out of me by putting it on another person.
So, the concept in that cures this concept of faith and trust sound so sublime I trust in the Lord, but it becomes a psychological process, it becomes something that, demands things of us in a gentle way, demand meaning it just reflects the law, to us. Like the super saying There is no other... So what we're seeing in our world, is all coming from inside of ourselves.
If you love it confirms you're loving yourself more forgive it shows your forgiving yourself more, see patience. Oh, it's kind of cool. That means that, as I look into the world, I can see how I treat myself inside the things I don't like and the things I don't want to look at out there. Those are secrets, that I have inside parts of me I don't want to look at.
So this isn't all easy, obviously, but it is a necessity. It can be easy. The only thing that makes it not seem easy is our resistance because deep down, we know that deep down, we know that as I see others I see myself. That's where that came from. Judge, and you are already judged and people went, you know what that means? That means if I judge I'm not judging someone who...
That means God's looking at me going. Oh, you are in so much trouble when you get all you know, and that's not what it means. Look at the wording, judge, you're judged means as soon as I judge you, it confirms I have already judged myself. That's what it means. It's more like a psychological process.
Judge, "and you shall doesn't mean boom and the wrath of the Lord is upon you. It means more like... Oh, poor thing, you know, Judge in or judge. It's that it's a poor thing. 'cause as soon as you judge you confirmed that you don't like yourself in one area or another. What would you like to do about that.
I would like to forgive, I would love to be more patient with myself in that area. How can we do that, how can we make you feel safe enough to work on that area of judgment about yourself? What is it? Is it your past? You're failed parenting somewhere. Is it behavior, is it? Oh, I said naughty things somewhere along the line.
What would you like to do about that. You don't just go, God forgive it now done. Let's look at that like a process it with it, it could be a thing or it can be a pattern, a thing like, Well, I once said such and such but it can also be a pattern. I have this tendency to get angry when now let's do we want to work on the thing, the reaction or the pattern of anger, and then take the pattern of anger look behind that, it behind that insecurity.
So I could just say I yelled at someone or I can say I have this tendency toward anger I want to forgive myself for yelling, but also the anger that caused me to yell then... Gosh, underneath the anger. I'm a bit insecure. So when people, whatever it happens to be when people say, "you know, you're not an attractive person, that's when I flat.
It's not the anger, it's the insecurity. Really well. So why do you think that. And being able to look at ourselves and say, "Wow I and learn to evaluate my day based on how I looked whatever could go wrong my friends at to evil. But at least you're still good looking at. Okay, so my report card.
But you're cute. Oh, well then, okay. Your parents are, you know, whatever they do to all your other siblings, but they thought you were pretty... So now it became a thing for you. That's my safety. So you have to be willing to breathe and say take a piece of paper, write it down, everything is based on my looks burn it and say good bye to it and then don't brush your hair today.
Go out, look however you look. Just that one time. I'm not saying always 'cause then you might tempt us to be scared and then I have to forgive you. No one, okay. But I'm saying, you can you find balance you can you go out without hearing what you look like? It's okay to look nice, but I'm saying the attachment to it, put it to the test now and then.
Just on that top topic. I teach, I say, "teach like this. I put on a decent shirt and do a top but all through the week I just wear a t-shirt usually swim trunks and put my hair in a pony. Tallahassee in a while. There's somebody that gets funny about it. Oh, I guess you're just kind of being casual today, like I'm not allowed to be a get people have actually been offended by how I look at when I just put my heart 'cause I don't think about it.
I do this to be respectful, I put on a decent shirt, but I don't really think about it that much. So people are gonna be funny, and you have to just go out. I see that that's a mirror of something to reflect to see in the release and then Be yourself, find balance anything that was an attachment that is only as long as you have money.
Some of us are brought up with success being that main point that proof that we're okay and we have to say, "I'm gonna trust and have faith that I'm a good person, no matter what my finances look like. Well, as long as your children like a no toss that out to nothing outside matters, what matters is the presence of God, I feel that I love for God as God, that love for God, as me, and that love for God in others, and it doesn't matter what I look like or how much money I have, but then that also means it doesn't matter what you look like or how
much money you have. There are so many times, everybody in this room has had at least one moment, where, where we saw how ridiculous it is to judge someone. You might a judge. So, by the way they look and then they prove to be an amazing person. We're loving more sharing more forgiving, and they have very little to give.
And you watched them give and then sat there going. Wow, I should be so kind. So we can't really discern by the world like that, but there's this concept of faith is this faith in things unseen. So, what we've learned from some program that came out in this world is faith. And forget that word instead, just think of it as this.
It's law of manifestation. All you need to do is set your mind to create something affirm that you're gonna get it and get it. That's their version of faith stuff. God tells us faith is, faith in things on seeing how we ended up creating programs, you know, multi-million dollar industries out of affirming and getting stuff as being an active face, I could only tell you that's just dysfunctional because it isn't about this very opposite.
God says, fate means having faith in things on seeing other people are saying, faith is getting stuff. Total opposites. But we don't want to exaggerate it and say faith in things unseen means that even when things are falling apart, you just go... Well, we, I guess at least I'll have faith in God, unseen God.
It's okay to have stuff. But have faith in your deservedly which is it's invisible have faith in your light and your deservedly. I can't see your desirability but I have faith in it. Now, I can manifest prosperity for you, I can manifest healing for you, but not because I have faith in the healing physical.
I had faith in your desirability. You see, the difference if you really... If we really want to understand the laws have gotten if we really wanna understand the power of faith truth, trust, it starts with everything, starts with "seek first the kingdom seek first the consciousness of God. When you see someone who's sick.
You don't just do like a "Boom, chuck-a-lucka-boom" and heal him it. You are healed, you know, here's a nerve that's all fine to do, but if I only do things to help you heal, it's still the world of doing. We say we're looking for being instead of doing to do that to get to the point of being instead of doing to accomplish to achieve that, it means I'm going to know the value of you as a person.
It is impossible for the God in you, to be sick. You brought your six self to the room that's okay. I'm not healthy, and you're sick. This is a human belief, that we have... We all have that. Someone can be sick. I don't shame you for... And I don't shame myself, I just acknowledge. Oh look, you appear sick.
But then shift into... Isn't that funny? So, you can appear to be sick and it's impossible, the real... You so my job is not to manipulate the physical... You into not being sick or even just trying to affirm it in some manipulative way but rather to know in my mind that when you come to me with an illness or lack of prosperity, issues or whatever it is when you come to me with something that doesn't reflect the presence of God, it means you're saying high there.
Would you give me a hand. Sure, what do you need an adjustment, or at a massage or a harbor? No, what do you need? I need someone to see who I really am. That's what they're saying. When someone comes to you and they act like a complete jerk selfish hurtful behavior. I know what it looks like. But you're supposed to be having faith in things unseen.
And that's a tall order. But they couldn't be in front of you if God didn't think it were possible for you. You go... Not this type of person at a line and occasional someone needing a few dollars in grocery line. It brought me a rude person. Be able to go inside your mind and go. Wow, good one.
Good one God, 'cause I know the rules are... You couldn't have put them in front of me, if I were not capable in at least attempting to go that direction. So fine. You can even say it with attitude. Fine! I'd really rather not have this type of person in front of me. You know, they wear the same cologne as my ex.
You just know, you really through that one at me, didn't you? They'll call on these to spell all over my nice dresser. So I used to smell it every day. So it's something that visceral, you can be all attitude around it and it's okay. God doesn't mind that God's just going and we...
They were the same alone, and even kinda look like them. And by the way, I wanna pick somebody to look just like your ex-gay but that's okay. And what are you gonna do about it. And you're allowed to say Not today. I refuse to see the light in another soul. There's no judgment, you're already judged by yourself, but God's gonna go Okay, we'll give you some time, we'll bring them around again next week.
Or next month or next year, but they will be back, because the day is you, that's okay, need some time, but remember we can also say "all right I'm going in. I'm gonna do what I can, I go into battle and the battle is with yourself, so in Word you go and you just said God be with me please, 'cause I can make light of it.
But some of them are very challenging tests, so I can say God, this man, this is really hard. This person reminds me of the one that did everything, hardly harm my children, they harmed my life, they ruling to me. I had to start from nothing raised my kids by myself, work three jobs to be able to do. I mean, there's stuff like that and nobody is telling you, it's supposed to be just easy.
Of course, it's challenging. But you're allowed to say Please be with me, help me. I know you're here but I don't see you in that person. Show me how to see you. And it doesn't mean that that person like literally and some city movie's gonna shake an old look falls to the ground and there's this being of radiant light with wings and a halo, and you go, "Oh my God, it worked.
The Easter. Looking for, hoping for is just a shift in feeling. I just even if... And it's gonna sound kind of harsh, but even if I just hate them a little less, something major has happened. So please just give yourself a break and go for just that just even if you feel a little less hurt. He anger, whatever it is that is already a miracle.
And my choice like out of a 100 percent of what I could have shifted if I only shift 00 percent that ten per cent is enough for a miracle, it's like that faith of a mustard set just that much faith. And I can shift everything, but I'll start there. And it's so amazing, because that one drop, is so potent and powerful, for that alone.
I can win the lottery for that alone. I could manifest healthier relationships. Now, if I do more than ten percent, God sky's the limit, but just that little bit can already bring me major shifts. But the problem is we don't have faith in either not either, we don't have faith. That that little shift was enough to add up to something.
So whenever you find yourself thinking when you find yourself, it's this called discernment, but be careful. Discernment to means my heads likely in the way that's different than inspiration, and how do you know when you're in the presence of God and whether you're discerning, properly, because when you're in God, you feel inspired the word "in spirit" you feel inspired, you feel up, you feel lifted you know when you sit there, just kind of with that from looking at people fault-finding.
It's complete egos, it's all it is, it's just the ego, just inside, it's the ego, it's devil, it's evil, it may sound exaggerated, to even call it evil, but that's what it is, it's of the ego, it's my failed thinking eval my... Well, thinking I'm not seeing clearly when I see someone, and find fault the opposite of faith is fault.
So, do you have faith in a person, can you see them and see good light in that person or do you say... Well, I would accept and you find fault. One is the tree of judgment that it sends us to hell meaning karmic life, and one of them is the Tree of Life, the one of forgiveness, that brings us home, to heaven and we make this choice every day.
So people have misinterpreted the whole concept of what faith is, it's only for God, and if I lack faith I'm a bad person. So please remember this. You are asked to have faith in every one, 'cause some of us think... Well, I'll just... Michael is saying, just only trust some people. No, it's not what I'm saying trust everyone, but I didn't say trust everything about everyone.
Trust the trustworthy parts. So if you ask me something of me, and you can tell that I'm coming from a place of inspiration and I bring you something that you've asked me to bring you, then you can trust that trustworthy part. If you ask something of me, no matter what it is, and I react with her anger, whatever it happens to be, you're not having to trust that untrustworthy part of me.
Do you see the difference? Look for God and trust the God when it's coming through when you don't see it, don't say, "Well now I have an excuse to not trust them. Your job is now to help me bring that part through, and you can only do as much as you can. So trust, the trust worthy parts of people trust the parts that seem loving and kind.
The other parts are not to be trusted, but they're not to be hated either. They're awaiting a miracle and you don't have to make them behave differently. All you have to do is a little secret in your mind a little process quietly in your mind. I see that they're not coming from God, God.
How would you help me to bring that part out? Do what you can. It comes out, or it doesn't... I'm gonna have faith. Did it happen if I did my job to affirm that it's there, even if you don't respond to it, that's just the way it is and I accept that I still did my work. I don't have to say Well you're a person that tends to steal money.
So do me a favor, hold my wallet. I'm gonna prove that you're a child of God, that's foolish and if you don't think that that's permitted in this thing, I'm describing the... Why did Jesus respond when he's told? Jump off the cliff and the angels will catch you? It's like he's saying, Yeah, they probably will.
But that's just kind of stupid, isn't it? Why do I need to do that? Why do I need to push to put things to the test, like that's ridiculous. So, he saying I could jump but why? So you can trust them, but you hold your wallet when you know they still... But why, why risk it why put them at risk? 'cause if they steal from you, they have more karma, you're harming them when you trust their untrustworthy parts.
So don't jump into a relationship like that, either not just off a clip Eton don't just leap into a relationship either this... And I've been lonely, for hours now. And we seem like we're hitting it off, and so on and so on, so maybe this will work out. No, no, no. And then blame them when it doesn't go well, just trust...
Trust in the God and everyone. How do I know God? And everyone, don't trust until you have brought it out. You not, they don't trust until you have found a way to bring that forward. Samson Biblical, Old Testament Samson strong faith in that dude, the things he accomplished faith in God, he fights off armies of evil people because he had faith, but he was a Nazarene.
He was from this particular group Nazarene like Jesus was also from the Marines, but he was a Nazarene and the Nazarene had their hair cut long and sort of tapped into a point slightly in the back, it was a certain custom they had, but Samson was so attached to my hair. It's my hair that gives me this power.
What it meant was the fact that I'm a Nazarene gives me special privileges, but the symbol of being in a ring was the hair you follow. It wasn't actually where he went. I have a feeling my strength comes from my hair like that. What was that kind of like some bizarre dream you had and then you started believing it, was it his hair, it was the hair is a symbol of Benares.
He was saying, I am a Nazarene and that gives me straight and power great, 'cause the Nazarene were devoted to God, and God gives you power. The problem is, he forgot it was God, and it was the title Nazarene and the title Nazarene was proven in his hair cut, so when the enemy cuts his hair, he's like, "I have no power.
And it's a good example of us false power, and false things. The presence of God in me, gives me strength and gives me faith, the presence of my belief at the presence of God in you also gives me my faith to do what I do. Any of us I say, I. So, whether you're an athlete or whether you're a speaker, whether you're a mom, dad, the power comes from God, and we become supernatural versions, we become God, God is versions of all these characters moms, dads, and whomever Daniel put his faith in God, they throw him
in a lion's pit. The lions don't attack him. But it's not because He judges the lions, as evil and fends them off. Daniel was learning to love the hell out of them, the lions and the people he was choosing to not be hateful. Now peace, pilgrim. I don't know if you're familiar with peace pilgrim an amazing woman, you know her life.
50-60-70s, you know, she was known for wandering the countryside, the world. And just speaking about love, well, she had the same thing, the Daniela they said they taught... And of course, in Miracle" says that when you truly love enough, you're already a men to stuff. Still something's gonna happen now and again, but you don't have to fear because the love is so present, you don't have to be as worried about stuff.
Gold is attracted to you. Prosperity is attracted things might still happen, but it just doesn't happen as much and it doesn't affect you. The same one. Peace pilgrim can say, "Well she wanders the streets just on her feet, no money on her. She was a breasted for vagrancy now. And again, you could say, "Well wait, how could you arrest me? I'm doing God's work.
She said, "Okay cue me in front or back in. They would haul her in, and it would be like some Michael land an episode of, you know, so what of any number of his shows about God, they throw her in jail and when the jealous come to finally, you know, post-Valor whether somebody's gonna let her out, they would find her with all the women in the gel singing Holy songs.
And he was like, you know, like I'm much TV she'll like, "Oh you see this stuff. Ripens yes. But how could you get them to do that? Because she said when you see the good in people and she adds and there is good in people, then you can evoke it and you also won't be as afraid of people because you're so busy evoking good.
They start responding to it and that's immunity that's showing like I'm not trying to do on the outside, I'm holding presence, and it just happens to attract more good. I've shared recently just the number of years on tour working the way. If it hadn't been for God, there's no way that a body could have withstood what I was doing all these years, but God's presence and we need to manifest it in every way possible, every relationship, every job.
But remember that when stuff does happen, she goes to jail peace pilgrim Jesus is arrested and crucified and so on. These are nothing but tests. And this is important, a test of your faith you've heard the term. My test my faith is being tested, right. And we usually attribute that to God, God is testing my fate God's like, This is amongst you people, I already hold faith in who you are...
You don't... It's not actually God going. Who's on the list today who needs faith needs tested, who you've been naughty at Santa Claus that does that, that's not God, God can only see your goodness and if you wanna be like God, are close to God, then you have to be able to see only goodness, it doesn't mean, deny the behaviors.
But it means when people do miss behave learn to affirm they know not what they do. Jesus also said, be as wise as serpents but as gentle as doves it means you know, come on, see through the stuff, see the game, but don't buy into it. But see it. And if somebody is rushing up to harm you, you know, what can I do is look at that illusion that person's arm that I look at their beating them up is not fun that that's an illusion tackled the person and make them stop.
It's all right the next right thing, it's called righteous action, but righteous action means actions that come from right consciousness. Do I know if it's right, consciousness when you don't know... Do the next right thing, just do the next thing that seems to bring the most good possible.
And in some cases, that'll be restraining someone. And as I'm winding up on King David went through hell a dark night of the soul, a couple times in his lifetime, and to King David went through a period. There's a reason why he wrote Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, because he was going through hell, but he takes this whole thing.
Now, remember, that's you and I, that's us going through divorces, and having sicknesses having loved ones die. It's like learning to affirm that even though stuff happens, he's saying, "Isn't it amazing that you are with me and that you're walking me down, right down the center into light and truth.
If I get distracted it's me that got distracted, and he says... But isn't it amazing that even when I'm in the midst of people that hate me, you've already set a table for me, you've already set it to like a feast. So it's kind of like saying I understand how life works, the world is constantly attest reflecting to us, our weakest points.
And they go after that waiting for us to react. One reason, 'cause the ego wants to destroy us but another reason is, it's reflecting my weak point so I can strengthen them. So even when people at their worst, I can make it into my best and that's called perception, I choose to see it this way.
These are tests forgive them, they don't know what they do, these are tests that they've been set up for they're blind to their lessons, they're blind to my lessons, but I for one I'm choosing to stay on track, I get it, I'm gonna just stay focused and do my work here I choose to wake up.
It's not easy because hurtful things and whatever the weakness is, it could be you pride yourself on being a good mom. That will be the thing that someone's gonna go after, including your own children, you have to know you're a good mom. You have to just know it in your. Even mistakes made. I re-centered myself, and I'm okay.
I am a good mom, not I was always... That's the past, I am, I am a good partner, I am a good whatever we are employer-employee or whatever I am and if I'm not... Let me re-calibrate again and become that thing. Learning to be the presence of God, not just see it in others, but learning to be that presence this world.
It's gonna put us to the test. But what do you do with tests? You're supposed to pass them, you don't go to the DM. Can I wanted the test so that I can fail it? It doesn't make sense. I want to not have a license, I take tests so that we pass them, we take tests so that we pass them and go to new levels.
I go and take tests in third grade, so I can go to fourth grade, eighth grade so I can go to ninth grade spiritual test that I can rise in consciousness, I can graduate from being a human being you doing to a human being from a human being to God and Goddess God, God is to the ones with God itself when there's no answers to my test other than Holly answers.
So to me, it's quite an amazing thing is just stay the course, watch yourself and remember that when people are doing things they are tests, and the test is, can you still affirm the presence of God? I'm not asking you to sit and make believe in your mind, okay? I saw that person physically attack another but I want a pretended.
They just ran at them and dropped flowers over there. That's kind of silly. It's kind of like just a denial, I'm saying don't pretend it didn't happen. I'm saying that we should say, despite it happening, not it didn't happen despite it happening or seeming to happen. Isn't it funny that that person has holiness inside of them.
I can't see it, but I know it's there. How do I know it's called faith? As soon as I couldn't see it, it becomes an act of faith to believe that it's still there. I don't wanna have any axial. Hes should do everybody does, but there'll be a day when you don't need an act of fate, anymore, 'cause there'll be a knowing this not a faith and things on, say, a knowing this, where the unseen becomes and then we're all free, it's all just all that stuff blows away.
We're such a legal-oriented society. Look at all the contracts and paperwork. Go to a doctor and you have to fill out so many papers you've become sick or just having to fill out all these papers, papers that protect them from your attacks. I think it's sad. If I were an MD, I would retire or quit because I wouldn't want everybody constantly attacking me and making me responsible for whatever isn't my thing.
People could walk in and say I've done that. You go to a dentist or you know, whatever. If they're trying to extract it tooth just give the tooth up, tell the tooth I'm good instead of afraid. You go to a chiropractor, they're gonna adjust your back, you can tend up... It's just not a good idea, it's better to just relax, let go, let them adjust your back.
Oh, but I'm scared. Okay, then tell him I'm scared, let me take a breath. I can't go ahead. Worse thing that can happen is they're gonna tell you. To go, but if they did, we're trusting in a child of God as being wholly and deserving of your trust, which means you would be one with God.
I know it sounds like a strange and analogy I use, but it's a point to be able to say, "you know, trust. So when you're a person, say like Elvis Presley you have all this money, who's your friends who can you trust to be your friends, are they there because of the fame the prestige, the money, the girls, what are they there for? I don't know, and you won't know sometimes.
Do your kids love you, just because there you're their mom or dad, is it just because you give them money or whatever it is, nobody's gonna know 'cause there's little attachments and little things involved conditions, it's called you're not gonna really ever be completely clear in this world of conditions.
Unconditional love means I'm gonna love you. Despite conditions unconditional love. We keep looking for it in people. And if you're a good person, if you're a good doctor, you're a good counselor if you're a good parent. I remember there was a couple of decent parents in my neighborhood, I tried to hang out at their house as much as I could.
Now I feel a little bit funny about having done that, you know, 'cause I think they were probably like, "Oh God, again, but I had such a screwed up life it felt so relieving to go and be around nice people, you know. Now I feel a little bit awkward about it, looking back, and I have to forgive and heal that part and myself, thinking, "Oh I probably put too much pressure on those poor people, but those folks, they received gifts in heaven because they were there for me, just like you have been there for other people, but people...
It's a sad thing because we're broken inside, so when we find good we grab on to it. And that's a desperation we can all understand that. But if you're in a position like a famous star you don't know who your friends are. Position of parent, it's a role you're still playing a role and a spiritual leader.
It still, it's a role we play, and so it gets interesting 'cause people watch your every move, so make your moves as good as you can... And things like people. Hugo and hugs and I have shared with you so many times what a beautiful thing affection can be can be very healing, but if we're all too broken then that can become scary for some people.
Everyone's looking for love, but it's the love of God, but it's also the love of God in each other. So if you find a parent, if you're a kid and you find a parent, the neighborhood, that's nice, you tend to attach if you find a spiritual leader, that's a pretty decent person, you tend to attach a...
It's called transference not just project negatives, we also transfer the positives. You're so nice. And with that goes romanticism and fantasies and scary things and confusing things, it gets really messy. And when you're in a role like this one, you have a couple of choices and one of them can be.
That's it. No hugs, no smiles, no niceness. Let's keep it all business. And there's moments when I felt that tempted to do that which is also a temptation to be faithless to get what I just said there that you can't handle, you can't, so then you can go the other extreme. Let's just beach.
So trusting and loving, and then someone gets confused or upset or whatever. They saw two people. Hugger, is too much hugging and smiles at Unity or if I own or whatever, it gets weird for some people. So then you say, "Okay what do you do? And that's the ego, the ego wants you in a no-win situation, don't hug 'cause it could go badly.
Hug everyone 'cause that could go badly. So in other words, be confused. 'cause that's divided. We fall. And that's the goal of the ego. So you have to find what works for you. For me, I have to navigate and make micro adjustments as best I can and navigate. Is it okay to smile at okapi? Okay, to engage? When we have dances there was a group here yesterday and a visiting group from China and they had a dance at the end.
Beautiful, beautiful day and they're all dancing and doing this traditional Chinese thing they ask, everybody from the audience to pitch it and they look at me in the no. And they're respectfully lovingly. Michael "Come on, you're the only one. Not dancing with us, and this is a tradition, this is love, this is importance.
And no, no, no, because if I dance, somebody's gonna complain about it, and I live with that every day, somebody having some trip about something, but I have to find my own equilibrium. I did my best to be respectful and watch and smile and but not join it, in this particular case. So we have to all find out what works, but please respect my choices and what works and doesn't work and respect each other's choices.
They don't do they do to let lead to his home and just affirm the goodness of God. And with that, then we all felt permission to come out and dance a little bit more. Each in their time, each in the right moment to stick a few centering breaths. Just a brief moment of meditation is that all stuff aside, with each breath, centering more and more with each press let the sound of the music just gradually take you to a quieter and quieter and quieter place, in the heart.
And soul and then imagine thinking of one person that you like one person that's nice, a friend. So when you... Like right next to them pictures or challenge with someone, you dislike or a challenge to it. If you can't think of a specific person that you could just think of a type of person just be honest, a person you like a person, you don't like type of person, you like a type that you don't like observe them and ask yourself, what kinds of things you like about one and dislike about the other just be honest and name that described the person in your mind
all short attractive unattractive whatever it is, just name it and as it comes to mind and then come to grips with this, the fact that I even see you, whether I like you or don't like you, however, I describe you, the fact that I even see with my eyes means I'm not seeing you at all. I'm thinking that I'm seeing something I like, but it's an opinion I'm thinking I see something I don't like, but it's an opinion.
I think I see you as taller... Short. But it's an opinion, none of it's true even likable things. They're not true to see you. I have to let go of seeing I have to let go of my opinions, my thoughts, my assumptions, and even still it's best if it's not me that's trying, but instead I say to you Father-Mother God.
I am willing to give up what I think I see about this person, so that you can show me what you see. How do you see this person and that person, you show me Father-Mother God. How you would have me see them experience them. And let's all take a moment, let that change. Let the able... And he, unlike able let it disappear and let something beautiful emerge not just something appealing to eyes, it's something beautiful emerges light a feeling of love, holy presence almost all inspiring to see a person's goodness
give that just another half minute and then feel their gratitude. Even the people you like fill their gratitude for being let off the hook for having to three-frame into something you think you like or dislike just fill that all falling away and their gratitude for that they're grateful that you're allowing them to be not likeable and unlike, but rather, pure, holy light.
We set them free and we to give thanks for this whole experience, and we allow it to have permanent changes within us, and so it is... Take your time, take your time, integrate that. It's nice to feel good.
