It's something that's so easy for us to forget, these concepts such as we read in our sacred morning readings or in some of our best books, materials. What the greatest teachers teach. This concept that there is something, there is this thing, God, that is love, and because it is love, it loves us.
And I could be in a temple, I could be in a fundamental Church a, new thought Center, and we could say that same thing, and it's still interpreted by people differently. If we say God loves us, it sounds almost very fundamental. Christian, the Lord loves us, although you also hear other things about the Lord, not liking us in some traditions.
I mean, that's the way it is, but it's one of the most common laws and important laws. God is but love and therefore. So am I made in God's image and so on, is there is God and God is only love, it's not something that can be loved once in a while, God and it's only love. And then immediately we can easily put into our minds, our version of what love is and then sort of fit God into that mold, okay, what is love while I love my partner or my children, so that's love.
God is love of God will fit that mold. It's really, really impossible with a human mind to understand such a profoundly spiritual concept, as to what God is. The closest we can come is a feeling and the one we most best can attribute is love. We could say it's actually bliss, but bliss kind of hangs out where love can actually take action.
Bliss mostly just hangs out. So there's the passive aspect of God, the bliss but then there's the active aspect of God into the world, into my life, into me, even creating me. God, you asserted love. Wow, I'm so much love, this is just so cool, I think I'll share this love. And on that day, we were born.
We How you doing, me, I'm great. How about you? I just feel so loving and that amazing. We all just now, we're all feeling blissful and loving just like God because we're made in God's image. But somewhere along the line, without getting into the details of the history into our minds crept a tiny mad idea, an insane notion that there could be life without God, and if God is love, and you can have life outside of God, Amen, you can have life outside of love.
And that's where the material world came from, it was birth by us, God created... I mean, just only loved... So though there's a universe we'll have to use for lack of a better phrase, or term. God created a dimension called heaven. But really, it is what God is. But let's just use it for now.
There's this concept of a dimension of love but dimensions even in quantum physics, we understand as we're learning, even in sciences, Astros that dimensions overlap. It's not like there's a dimension over there. And then one over there somewhere else. They're sort of super imposed one over another, which is also difficult to imagine.
We still in our minds, go. You mean like layers, like this, or layers like this from left to right, or... It's really hard to understand what does it mean to have dimensions super imposed? It means that right here is one dimension, and then right here is the next dimension. And then right here is another one after that, and the next in the next inning.
Well, they're all right here, but you can't necessarily have two things exist in exactly the same space at exactly the same time, but you can because they're not actually in the same time, nor are they. Are they in exactly the same place in terms of measurement? So that's why it's laws that override standard laws.
Right here is God's world, and that people go... Oh yeah, you're right. Oh, look about her fly. Oh, it is God's world. That's not the one because the butterfly will get caught in a spider web and it'll be destroyed by the spider and that's not heaven, that's why we're hearing that when heaven is the lion will lie with the lamp.
Meaning, you don't have the stuff that you see in this material world, there's not a candidate out there that will be the heaven candidate versus the hell candidate. There's not an ecosystem that is the heaven one versus the hall one. There isn't the health system or health-ness of our systems.
That is heaven versus how it doesn't happen that way. There's this absolute frequency of love and it's right here, but what we've done is we've put the analogy of... I've used for many years as an overhead projector. Now, if you're old enough, like me, to know what that is, then you'll catch on, but if you're younger, you may not remember these, but this box with a project or kind of a light in it and it hits a...
Marian goes up onto the screen, like a projector, but instead of a project, or showing film you put slides on the glass and it shows you that because of the mirror. Okay, now that pure light is heaven imagine that overhead projector pop it on bone, the light of God. Now, look at the screen. What do you see light.
Nice, there you go, but imagine nice. That light had a feeling, just pretend a feeling... Did that light, what if that light, what if you were living in darkness, you were trapped in your other electricity went off, you're living the middle of nowhere, you can't find any there's no light in you don't know her.
The flash lights are dark mistakes darkest suddenly doesn't feel very good. As soon as there is even the smallest amount of let you find a flashlight of match pool, thank God, look at how grateful you are to have any amount of light, try to imagine that times of billion and make it a feeling when you see the light on that screen the light of God.
Wow, you know, that's just amazing. Okay, so how is that an analogy of life now take a slide that just has a little black speck on it, and lay it over the light. And then imagine you have a slide for every hurt, you've ever experienced. And on those slides, there's just some sort of smudge that represents your limited beliefs, your limited experiences, your illnesses.
There's the loss of a child. There's the such and such when I was a kid There's such and such, nobody liked me in school. There's my parents said. There's my own physical limitations, illnesses, money issues, the job I lost. Add a different slide with a difference smudge anywhere on the slide.
Just put a smudge here and there. Keep adding slides for everything that's ever been a traumatic or less than God-like experience. In a matter of time, the screen will go dark again. Won't it? And at the very least, it'll be very obscure, the light. You know, you might still see traces of it here.
And that's life on earth. Everything we see is made up of overlays. I actually think we're seeing things and we're not even the science of vision. I vision can tell you this, but they just don't get the feeling of the metaphysics behind it, they just go. No, it's just factually what you're seeing is not actually there.
I mean, how do they not get that? Do you you get it, what you just said. Well, yes, what you're seeing is not actually there. That's so cool, why I don't know why that doesn't add up to anything to them. What you're seeing is an illusion what you're seeing is gathering information into your eyeball going into your brain and then your brain will determine what you think...
You see, and it will determine what you see based on what when always the past your eyes are incapable of telling you which is why so many mystics and masters, gurus, and such in history, a yogis I should say. I tell you, your eyes and your senses lie to you. So you have a spiritual self, and you have a material self.
The material self is just trying to get by and it uses senses to get by. None of this is actually here. But if I feel my way through, you know. My eyes will tell me something. Now, if I have met nice people, and in my experience, mostly it's males or females or blacks or whites or this race of this thing or whatever people that live in this town or that to whatever my experiences have been...
Are going to be the ones that my receptors and my brain allow me to have. Again, it almost never allows new experiences. And in medical science, they'll say your brain is trying to conserve energy by summarizing everything you see, now by telling you it's the same as you want, saw before, and you never get to have a new experience if somebody can walk in the door and they could be divinely ordained by God to walk up to you say hello and change your day, but your brain's gonna go short circuit in a little twitches, like What's going on here.
This is not within my systems. And it's got a panic and it'll have to come up with, Okay, we don't panic. You're doing this inside nobody's really seeing it usually lets you live in Sedona, but most of the time it's contained inside so inside there's this panic and it's like, "What is this? And then the brain's gonna go...
Controlled by the ego the brain's gonna say don't panic. I'll take care of this. Oh, you must be so nice and such a good friend to be able to take care of this for me. I got it covered, which it doesn't, it's not out for your good, but the ego is gonna say, I got you covered. What it's gonna do is say, "You know, I understand that they seemed a little unique seemed a little nicer than some, but after all, they are men.
It is a man in front of you, and you know it may have done before or women or this race or that height or this body type. The brain has programs and your ego never wants you to respond or experience anything outside of the programs it gave us... And then we become addicted to the programs. There's actually a chemistry to that, which I talked about last Friday on a Friday night free things that go out over the internet so you can go look it up, but it becomes a chemistry even even the chemistry in my body, will not accept something that is in the moment.
No love. And all of us have had at least one miraculous moment that bends our mind that makes us go. There's something wrong with this, this can't be true. No, it could be anything, it could be. You think you have a lot, wintry numbers and you look at it and you go, "No way, you go into the...
It can't be, rather than, of course or a healing if a doctor says, I guess what that thing you had it's gone. You know, there's a part of us that thinks are you sure instead of... Yeah, so of course if it doesn't exist in God, how could it exist in me if I made a God's image. There's a part of us that is so addicted and used to the other.
It's almost like we are living it's beyond almost, it's because we are living in constant post-trauma of life. The trauma of thinking we separated from God the trauma that we think we separated from each other. If we're separate, how can I trust any of you think about it, if we're separate? Well, I don't trust strangers but I trust my family for how long everybody is on borrowed time.
If you still have an ego mind. So God is asking us listen as much as you can, try to make your life decent. It isn't going to work, at some point, you know, things go wrong, and you're gonna be hurt again. So why don't you eventually just consider trusting the only thing you can trust, which is God in us trust, the trust worthy parts in each other, don't put trust in the ego-based parts of each other.
How could that go? Well, learn to find the light of God in each other. Mainly that comes through love and forgiveness, 'cause I can't actually just sit there and stare at you until I see the light of you. To a degree you can, but not ultimately and not as easily as practicing love and forgiveness, because then I don't have to like try...
What happens is my mind gets rewired and it becomes a natural process if I go on the programming and the wiring of my previous brain my biology neurology, et cetera, is not going to allow me to experience God on earth, and some people even the most well-intended or still waiting for God on Earth, to be somebody like Jesus returning and making everything okay.
If Jesus returned to morrow, he would still have no thing he could do for you, other than asking you to still wear the mind of Christ. Which means a mind of love and forgiveness. In other words, they can't give you that mind, they can only tell you how to stop being anything but that mind by letting go of judgment by letting go of fear, the compulsion to that, there's something this world has to offer.
Basically, think about the middle path, middle path there's two middle path. Most people are on any path but the middle path, it's true, it's true, they're just on any path? But, so I was doing meditation. But gosh, I haven't meditated weeks, 'cause I met a new person and we've just been so busy.
You are not having a relationship you are having a distraction and it was created not by God, but by your ego, that doesn't want you getting closer to God. You could call it the temple and Christian on the terminology or the ego in other terminologies, but there's a part of us that wants to wake up and a part that does not and the part that wants to wake up seeks the metal path on earth, the middle path is called balance.
Yes, meditate, but also spend time with your kids and spend time here and there. But Melanie balance, that's only gonna help you have a better life on earth, even then the ballet, the middle life, called balance. Well, balance will only help you a little to have a better life on Earth, it isn't gonna give you the better life called Heaven, that middle path is God.
So right down the center, the path of God, now don't let the head get involved going well. So God would be that I only read the Bible, let's say, versus any other book. No, it's not stringent like that. 'cause I can read the Bible from a completely fair based addictive nature, and I can sit by a stream and be in the center of God.
So it's not the what, it's the how that I find the metal path of God. So the middle path of God however, does mean a commitment to my spiritual path. It does mean I'm doing something to to take out the parts of me that are not love to heal them, to dismantle stuff in my life, that's a distraction whatever it happens to be.
If someone said to you, "Okay we're gonna give you a new job and it's gonna pay you three times the money you're making now. Oh my God, that's great. I was praying for that. It was affirming, I was even using law of attraction and golden candles on all kinds of things to make this hope that's great, it's perfect timing perfectly alignment with spiritual creation.
Okay Cool now now all of a sudden you find if they haven't called you back, yet, so you call them all... No, we're still working on, it's gonna be a few more weeks and then a couple months goes by and another couple of months try to listen. This is supposed to be a miraculous God center thing that I'm doing.
But did you notice that somewhere in there, I got hooked, and now I'm waiting for it to happen, and you're not telling me You're not giving my my answer. Yeah, but be patient because if you push it too hard, the job won't be yours. Oh, I'm sorry, now I'm a little child, I'm sorry, Mommy, Daddy.
I just was wanting food, 'cause I'm hungry. Stop asking we'll get you your food. Okay, and now you're suffering. Is that making sense? I got hooked, and I'm actually suffering now. I'm the type that's gonna go way to say. Hold it. Wow, what was that? I got hooked into someone telling me, they're gonna give me something I listen.
This is Michael, and you were telling me about that job, remember, Okay, I'm just checking, it now. I'm not saying you call him and say, "How dare you and yelling. Hey, and hang up. I'm saying you could be loving, and tactful just checking it. It's been a while, and I thought kind of it was gonna be a couple of weeks, which is what they told me, but I won't push that and...
And it's been several months now you know, and so, I've got some other things I'm interested in doing. So what I thought I would do and listen to the words I thought I would call you one last time. That's how I would put it, although I wouldn't emphasize the words like that, I just thought I check one last time on this job to see if that was gonna happen.
So I'll hope to hear back from you from to by tomorrow. And if not, I'll know that it's not working out. Click now. Some people, God, why would you do that? You're risking the loss of that whole thing. Now I already am lost. Not what I lose the job. I am already lost when I let you hook me into thinking my happiness was coming and you were gonna give it to me, you just dangling this thing.
Secondly, if you're the type it would dangle a new possibility and not get back to me, in that amount of time. Do I even want to work for you even if I want, even if it tells me one make three times as much. So I'm the type guys. I'm just the type that would do that. And not all of us are some of us.
We have such little-ness inside we'll take any little bait but we have to learn Holden Ter to absolutely hold Center. And I'm the type that I'll say. Well, let's... It's not opening up, so I'll just knock things over just to see if anything's coming out of this is a big, nice, beautiful plans about what you're gonna give me, but it isn't happening, so I'll throw the flat plans in the fire at least I get a heat from a marshmallow or something out of the plans, the turn it to turn it and element but I'm not gonna get hacked.
So this world is nothing and offers us. Nothing sounds kind of harsh, but it doesn't mean denying here. We believe we're here because there's these seeming layers of dimensionality. Heaven means no dimensions no overhead slides, obscuring the light of God, the metal path even while on earth means that I'm not allowing things to obscure that light and instead the light of God can beam down this world will not be the pure light of God, but it can reflect it.
That's how to understand the role of this world when you say... But is it real or is it not real? How much realness is there? How much should I get involved? It's fairly simple balance now the truth but respect the illusion, the truth is this is not... We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto. This, we're having a bad dream, and we're out in the world on this place called Oz and behind the curtain is this psychopath part of ourselves that hates ourselves that load ourself.
There's a part of us that has self-loathing there's a part of us that wants to be in limited consciousness because it thinks if I'm in limited consciousness limited means there's less fuel in the tank, I can always pull to the cassation, and get filled up. That's the logic of it, Because limited consciousness never wants us to realize the tank cannot be empty.
It can only ever be full and I need nothing from this world, not from any person or from anything I am as God created me and I choose and I will to be the Christ, owner that's who I am, but better. Go get some gas in the tank which sounds like a contradiction and it is now I know that there's no car, there is no tank, there's no station that's gonna give me fuel.
I know that it as a reality while I'm on Earth, there's games, we have to play. So as much as it may sound, like a contradiction, go get your check-ups and deal with the stuff of this world. Just remember in the back of your mind, it has no real power over us. That's all we're asked to play the game to be "in the world, but not of the world, that's all, and it's so delicate.
That's the middle path. Again, there's the god middle path just stay committed to knowing the truth of God, but the human middle path balance, balance such as nothing. In this world of really offers me anything. Now, that doesn't just mean I play along carelessly because of balance. I don't do that because of balance, I say, "Well I don't really need anything I don't need anybody, but it's nice to share some time with you, relationship or whatever it happens to be.
I don't need anything but if I'm gonna have a job, I'll have one that resonates with me. I don't go and do things in bits anymore, I don't go and have another meal go and get another job, go and get your twentieth life mate. I don't know how you can have ten of them. When one of them turned out to not be your life, maybe you're not a great judge on that sort of thing, you know, just, you know, I found the one and only.
Again, on how can they be? Oh, I don't only ever again, that doesn't make sense. So everybody out grabbing these things grasping you know it, but is talking about that grasping grasping clawing for something, it's really if you think about it is very sad that people would be so empty that they would grasp.
Now, we grasp and then look at what happens when you lose a job, how much you can feel hurt rejected betrayed et cetera, a partner hurt betrayed rejected et cetera. Look at the feelings we have now. Technically, we are told, If you use those feelings as a barometer there's one thing you can get out of those emotions that you're feeling, the lesson of exactly how much you were invested in thinking that that thing had value.
If I cry a little, it means I possibly had a little belief that that thing had value. If I cry tremendously, and I cry I'm just using that as a metaphor. I mean it could be like I'm just catatonic in bed, I can't move 'cause I'm so lost emotionally. It just tells you that, it's how much you were invested in that thing.
Now, I'm not saying become cold, not at all, but I'm saying use it as a barometer. Look at the things in life that have made you feel paralyzed emotionally crippled and so on, and so on. It just tells us it's a great objective way to say, Wow, that my feelings are normal, as a human being to be sad and so on.
But here, let me look at the test make a print out of how crazy I got, and loss, shame, guilt, betrayal or whatever, and that tells me how lost I was, how invested I got tells me how much I was invested in the intensity of the emotions, tells me, the investment I had that you were gonna be my answer. And that's kind of weird because you think you're only upset because someone left you and you're not, you're upset because they're not what you thought they were, and what you thought they were, is what you hoped they were and what you hope they work was something
that fills you something that complete you and they are not... It's best to just retire everyone from such things and find yourself. I can find myself and share with others. I'm not saying don't have relations but one comes from center and one goes looking for Center which you cannot find in another person.
It doesn't even make any sense if I'm standing here and here is my center, how could you be standing there and be my center as soon as I go to you, I've just lost my center. It's right here, any leaning to the right, to the left, forward backwards, up. Anything other than right here is just another distraction.
When you hear people talk like this, it can almost be a little bit deflating like, "Well why even live? Everything in the world is just an illusion, that's right and everything in this world is just another distraction correct. I wouldn't, I tell this to my five-year-olds if I had children, like that now...
Hey kids, guess what? Nothing matters. There's no point to anything, it's all an illusion. I wouldn't do that because you have to respect the illusion of where people are at. I've been teaching for many years I haven't always been able to say this, you know I think some of it comes from when you get old, you just don't care anymore, so you just play and then if somebody ever call you on you can claim it.
Some medical issue that God causes you to blurt. But I wasn't always able to say, quite the same things. The world is changing and people are becoming more accustomed to understanding and believing that it is in fact possible. And in fact, it's a fact that the world offers us nothing. You could sit in the old days, and read a little loud, loud to or booting is great, like the world is nothing within the nothingness of, The nothing man, that's deep.
People could go well, because you were safely distance 'cause it was just some abstract Eastern poem of some time. Now we're going, "You're kidding. It's actually becoming my reality because I've lived in, I'm not reading it in a pocket book is... Sort from late or whatever. I'm not actually understanding it, I've not been there.
I now know it. Don't think it read it. I now know it. I understand, yeah, it's a little amazing, but it is the truth, of God. And that's part of the dismantling of the world, we want now by us becoming more accustomed to hearing it, speaking it, experiencing it. The world is changing, and I'm just me like out there.
The world is changing in our consciousness. There is a world of God and it's got overlays and the overlays are starting to get pulled off because we used to go... I can't take off any overlays. I can't even see them, it's too dark. Well, let's then close our eyes and stop trying to see in the dark as I just close our eyes.
And let's just start imagining where some of the overlays came from. Well, I don't even know what that means. Okay, we'll close your eyes. And when you ask yourself, "I have been examples of some betrayals you've ever had. Well, how's that can help? No, no, no, just relax. Just a little self-inventory.
Can you name some betrayals you've ever had. Well, yeah, here's one, here's one. And as you start to confront them, Look at them, feel them, process them. You don't realize it, but overlays are being taken off the overhead. Okay, keep your eyes closed, keep your eyes close, okay, I am what else you got? Any kind of hurts unexpected traumas while there was this...
And then here comes some tears. And then there was also this and this didn't expect that. Any losses processing, processing site and more layers, and more layers and Morales. And at some point our guide, which can be really ourselves, it could be any healer, but it is also the Divine Mother Holy Spirit of God that's doing this process with us and at some point she says "Now honey, you man, I have you open your eyes.
Well, why it's always so dark? Can't see anyway just open them and you open them and you realize I can see that's called being born again. I can see what happened. Did somebody find a light somebody found the lights, didn't they. No, you took off the darkness the light was already there, and that's what healing does it just get the stuff out of the way, everything is just a mind-perception, it's just an illusion.
It has no real power over us, but we think it does is a quote from A Course in Miracles, this is an insane world. Do not underestimate the extent of its insanity there is no... No area of perception that is untouched by this insanity. When you are in darkness you will perceive that darkness everywhere. It's hard not to just here's a story attempt to to judge me, but hanging that when the Y-T-K thing came and people were living in fear, Carly, the whole world is gonna shut down, and we just won't even have anything anymore.
It's just... We all just sit around in the dark, not knowing what to do for ever. So, that was the theory. But with the computers going haywire at The Midnight 2012 mini-22k was... And it occurred to me and then I went over and was visiting my kids, they were at their mom's house, they were a little at the time, and I went over and said, "Hey guys, sounds, it going well.
Yeah, don't you realize this is... And the lights and everything is gonna go. Oh, you kidding Okay, well do you wanna stay here with you guys? Yeah, dead hang out, okay. And we sit waiting for the world to end, and they're all sitting around just with their mom on the couch waiting and you know, I just got up, I'm gonna go the bathroom, or quick and go the men get something to drink or whatever and midnight comes in, all the power be goes out, the first thing one power goes out in darkness.
The second thing I remember hearing, "Oh my God, yes, started screaming. I go up the stairs. And what's going on? Yeah, it happened. The roles come doing it... All the lights went out, they didn't know I had gone to the breaker. And it was great because they help me without realizing it. I could hear them going five or we...
I don't know what I don't know what this is helpful here, to one. All you have to do is believe something and it starts meaning something I sort of got, I pay for the therapy now I do. It must not have been easy to have me as a dad, but... So the course goes on to say, When you strive for anything in this world and the belief that it will bring you peace, you belittle yourself when you think something in this world can fill you you're already affirming your little-ness to get that.
When you choose such your choices, your evaluation of yourself choose little-ness and you will not have Peace for you will have already judged yourself unworthy of it, as soon as you believe that you are less than divine you're setting up the stage for all the things that will confirm it. Okay, and that includes when I get hooked into something like a person that then betrays me and oh my God you...
How could you do this to me? And I thought You weren't perfect and you're gonna be My Something forever, et cetera. I need to stop for a second and, go. It's not just they did and it's not just for giving what they did. I get that work on that, that's fine, but remember there's something else.
What was I thinking what was happening inside of me that made me not just hope you were something I needed you to be that something. Oh my God, wow. That's when I need to forget, forgive myself and apologize to myself. Man, I am so sorry I was putting you in an assignment that already confirms your little, your inadequate you're limited and there's somebody that will fulfill you and it can only go poorly.
That's why Buda was saying, It's only and badly at the end because they will leave, they will die something's gonna happen to end this little thing, you've got going on this false fulfillment and it can't go well. So I don't think you should call everybody that you know and say Listen.
Gosh, Silly me. I made myself think you were a friend, or a partner, I thought you were my kids. Or it's all an illusion. I think we need to really just stop talking because you're just tempting me to believe. I have friends. I think that's not necessary. But what I do need to do is understand it in here, it's still true just 'cause I'm not gonna tell you it doesn't mean it's not true, it's just not appropriate because we don't have a human brains that will understand that yet, but we are learning to understand more
and more. If you had a person versus say, 00 years ago, or whenever else more and more people today would be able to hear you even though it's still going to be tough to hear you say, I can see that there's a lot of addictions and illusions in my life, and I'm gonna start cutting back on some things, so I may start spending some more personal time and I apologize if that's an imposition on our relationship.
I know that's not easy but I'm telling you, more people would understand it today than they would have years ago because the concept of us working on ourselves the concept of us making our middle path, of balance a priority is becoming a bit more common, I think. Yeah, so this is the direction we're going and I'm gonna share one last quote from A Course in Miracles.
Do not despair, then because of limitations. You are in a limited world, created from a limited mind but you're not a limited mind you're an unlimited you just don't get to see that yet 'cause you don't own the unlimited self if you own the unlimited itself, you would see an unlimited universe.
The more you own your little-ness more that's the world you're gonna see. So don't despair, because of these limitations, it is your function to eventually escape from them, but not to be without them right now. You're in the world, you're gonna see these things, they just don't have to control you the way they once did.
If you would, if you would be heard by those who suffer you must speak their language. This is very important if you're going to be able to get connection from people in this world, you're still gonna need to have a little bit of limited consciousness. In other words, you're gonna still need to have a little bit of humanist to you, even though you're glorious divine unlimited being, it's not that bad a thing to think that you still also have issues here and there because you know there are other people with those
issues and they need you to speak their language. So if you would be a Savior, you must understand what it is that needs to be escaped from all the help you can accept will be provided and not one need you have, will not be met. So everything we need to help ourselves and or others is right here. And even though we say Okay, Michael saying there's a spiritual world and then there's an earthly world, a material world.
One is unlimited one is limited one is heaven one is Earth one of them is this thing called Heaven, it's the perfect light love of God, the other has all these overlays true. Don't shame yourself. However, for having some of those midges because that one much called betrayal that you've had and you wish you were completely gone till your work on it, it's healing, you're doing a great job, but don't shame yourself for having it because that's how you can talk to other people in this world, becoming a miracle worker" to them.
'cause you've had the same overlay, that Dave got. It's okay, we grow and we grow. Yes, and the slides, come off, that's right, but don't make it an obsession because then it becomes a much called obsessing on perfection. You just add another judgment, to yourself. So, all we can do is walk the path, walk the middle path of balance and walk the middle path of dedication to God know the truth that it's all a distraction, this world, everything here.
I don't care what it is. The way people look at your health, everything is a distraction, there's negative distractions, which is hurtful behaviors positive one, seemingly positive one, which is all about I'm going to be look at me I'm amazing I look younger than I did yesterday. And that's still a distraction.
You don't have a body, you don't even have a body, it's just what your brain believes it needs to see in front of you when you think you need to see somebody, who looks terrible, that's what you're gonna see when you think you need it. For some reason, your belief systems are about seeing people that are better looking than you and your opinion, better fitness or whatever, that's what you're gonna see.
Everything out here just materializes, to show us how we're feeling, what we're feeling inside, so it's not going... You're not gonna be without this stuff. We're in this world, but don't be of the world. You will escape the affects these things have these things have but they're still gonna be there.
But you've escaped their effect on you. You don't have to say God. I still see people when I miss, I thought I was spiritual. They'll still be there, but you don't judge them as much. You'll still have a job and not judge it as much. The world will still be there for a while. While my consciousness is changing, and then when enough of us have shifted our consciousness, we will have an unconscious discussion.
Are we ready at... No, in the corner somewhere? No, I mean a little bit more time, okay, let's all continue incarnation and looking at people without judging people and let's not judge our circumstances and not judge poverty nor prosperity. Let's hold the center hole, the sander we check in again, unconscious conversation.
Hey everybody ready. Oh yeah, yeah, any day. Oh, we're ready. And in that split second the world disappears, and we're home but we don't go home like two of us and leave a few more. Bless you. We're a collective consciousness. So as long as there's some overlay in our collective not just my personal overlays but the collective consciousness has it too.
And as long as there's still one piece, like Yogananda that as long as they're still one thing needing heeled, I will come back. You know, he didn't say... "Oh I'm feeling pretty yogi. I'm pretty mystical and people are gonna love my quotes for a long time, that really sets me up in the high standards of spiritual teachers, so I just feel really good about myself.
I'm gonna go now. You know, I have a mantra that I leave you all with which is, it sucks to be you. And gone, you know, instead can you imagine what it takes for a master like that to say? And I'll be back and I'll be back and I'll be back until we all go. I mean, humans go. Why do I have to come back? It's that fall.
Why should I come back? Because they won't heal. I think it is true, that's the human consciousness and imagine being so enlightened, who's to them, we can talk about... Well, it's not our fault. Who are... They were one collective. As long as any one part of us is still hurt enough or hurting enough, we have to come back and play the game and it's okay, that's not always easy man, there's days that I think...
Oh, let's send a "let's just go. There are, there are days like that and... But I know the truth, and if God appeared to me at any moment, even in the toughest moments Michael, yes, you can ascend now because you've really done a great job. Thank you, thank you, and you, you really have a good part, you really do mean well, you have good intentions, and good integrity, thank you God so you can ascend now.
Okay, I'll take you up on that. I would, I'd be really tired go, "Yeah okay, then God I know God well enough to know God would say, "But you know Michael, I would really appreciate it if you could come back and help a few more people I'd be like, Oh. Seriously, like you hadn't yet.
Hello, was ready to go. And now you put in a little... I know God, God knows me and I know that God would know that there's no way it's not possible that I could say no to that, and I hope that that's in all over hearts that we'd rather not turn anybody away that's in need and we practice that in our day-to-day lives and it changes the world.
Random acts of kindness, helps bring the spiritual world instead of just the material world, the material world, comes from material minds, it's the limited world that comes from limited minds. How proud do I want to be about my limited world that we've created? There's an unlimited world I can create how by getting in my unlimited mind, and that's by forgiving the one mind that is limiting and judgmental, and shifting into unlimited and forgiving.
And then I start to see a different world, and that happens in moments of epiphanies and enlightenment. And then it also happens gradually and steadily. Sometimes it'll be little blips and sometimes there's an overall feeling that things are shifting inside. However it comes to us. Make sure you give thanks because there are far more things on this earth that will try to get you off center than there are things to bring you on to center.
That's the design of the place you are out-numbered you are absolutely outnumbered. That's a fact because that's how this world was created. A fear-based place, to make you always be outnumbered you can't fight the world with the same mind that created the world. All we can do is I'm gonna shift my allegiances to the center path make God my priority, which is spirituality, my priority and I will not deter from that.
Love, forgiveness, peace, joy. I forgot again it may pray again call upon the mind of Christ and there are so many deep things and I'll close with this. So many deep things we can learn from all this you could say, and it's so hard to put into words sometimes, but you can imagine saying, "Okay man, all upon Christ, you could even say your angels, if you like, but let's just say from them, you can call upon Christ Jesus, who manifest and became the Christ that you're becoming as Christ too, but you
call up on the Holy Spirit. But let's use Jesus, as an example. He's a teacher that represents awakening. Okay, so we're going to call upon Him. We still have the tendency to say this is... I would love for you to come here and speak to me. I'd love to have a vision, 'cause I've heard people have them.
So, let me have one of those. And Jesus is like... Got it, so sad. That you want me to appear to you and I, it's Jesus in my white robe, again after two thousand years, now, but now it's me again, and just coming to say whatever it is that you think is gonna change your life. Hello, beloved. Yes, say something else, that's cool.
B in the heart and mind of that Christ that I am. Oh, oh, that's so amazing. See you having a conversation. And the truth is, if you could ask Jesus not what you want, but what it wants. This person known as "Jesus historically would say, to you. I'd like to play a game with you, instead of you calling on me and me appearing in the form you want telling you the things you wanna hear from me.
I have another idea, why don't we... Let me be invisible. So you have to come to me now watch what happens if you have to come to me that means you have to start being more like me, so by not appearing to people I'm actually causing them to have to become like me to see me, and that does more than me appearing to them where they're at and they make no change or effort to shift.
You see the difference, that's how profound the real spiritual path is. The divine plan for Humanities awaken. It has some pieces to it that humans do not hear about yet and do not understand yet. That's why I've sometimes announced these new dispensations. Where we're told the masters and so forth, aren't gonna come here as much as they used to...
Because we're supposed to go to them. Dispensations where you'd have a teacher here and there, that your religious teacher, you're a leader, whatever that gonna be, it's not happening like that any more. Instead of a few waking up, it's every one has to wake up. And one of the ways for that to happen is all of us in the trenches.
Like he was saying in that one quote Don't be so upset that you still have issues you're going to get past them, don't worry. About that, but while you're here, sometimes those issues, even if they're in your past, they give you a language to speak to other people with those kinds of issues.
In other words, even your wounds can be used by spirit for something profoundly powerful miraculous things you think are a little inconvenient. If only I could be over that such and such. You don't put it that way. Do you work on it. But while you still have shades of it, they're gonna be people you're gonna meet, that they wouldn't be able to hear anybody else but you in the light today.
Oh, that's been you on me too. You find people you meet people, it's called Bridging you connect with them and you bring them home because of that thing you try to get rid of. Yes, work on it, don't obsess and don't judge yourself for it if it's there, let spirit use it. Male, female, black, white.
You have teeth, you don't have to if you have kids, you don't have kids. Any one of these things makes you somehow unique for someone to hear you just... There's a frequency they pick up on and they can hear from you. Something that could not have heard from me. Alright, let's take a few centering breaths.
Setting aside the world and the stuff of the world setting, aside shallowness fear, worries, concerns and today's meditation to be like a experiential prayer. In this moment. Father, Mother, God I behold a world that I see every day with my eyes and my senses, normal world, the standard of what I see, every day I turn on the TV.
What kinds of things might I see? Just imagine the... You walk into a grocery store. What kinds of things do you see? Not just items, but interactions and people, people on the freeway people in hospitals or in schools look at the stuff that goes on in this world. Finding love of this world, the partnership and losing love all the stuff of this world.
There are people out there buying themselves with having to mow their lawns tie their shoes and so on. And just for a moment, be really vividly aware of how much work that is, how much effort just be aware of all the stuff of this world, fueling up cars, buying cars builds having to pay bills and not having funds, to pay them.
Sometimes, all the stuff, prepping dinner, try to add all that up, look at the stuff one person. Does it, multiply it, that they do every day, and multiply by nearly eight billion people just in one day and then allow the contrast to be clear, underneath all of that. There is this perfect peace of God that does nothing.
Perfectly self-sustaining in as a consciousness. Just even just try to imagine what that looks like or feels like underneath all the doing, try to feel or imagine the difference, the world that is versus the world that isn't look at the contrast. And then individualized the contrast and imagine every person out there mowing, and fueling and cooking and cleaning and Bill bang, all of the stuff.
Each one of them deep inside has the kingdom consciousness of God still peaceful still blissful deep inside unheard unseen UN-felt by them. Clearly, they're really missing out on something. And so, we're aware of all of this and we can now say, an affirm. I recognize that I see the people on Earth including myself getting caught up in the doing, and yet I know that underneath it all, there is a peace that surpasses understanding.
So, I am releasing every one for at least this moment, I am releasing everyone from my image of them doing because if my brain is used to seeing people in the doing mode, it will never be able to free them up to be who they really are. I forgive every one and I release every one from my opinions, my thoughts, my programs of them doing all programs of them doing...
I'm giving up to you Father-Mother God, help me to forgive myself for imprisoning everybody into an image of a human with limited being is as their consciousness. It's not true. So I release us all, and imagine, just imagine, what happens in the soul when we're quickened when we kind of leap out of the body that was zipped up around us acting and doing it's burst and all this light comes out.
And let's imagine that for the world it's called the Second Coming of Christ. The half to disappear. The kids have to go to college, so and so has to have babies, so and so must heal 'cause I don't want them to pass away and so on and so on. You know what, you just say it all of you know what, I know nothing but God does, so I surrender to God's mind, so that I can see everyone through God's mind, and I celebrate in advance that this is a very good thing.
Quietly, inside, we hear, and so it is... And then just softly and gradually come back to the room don't rush to that. Just very gently come back to the room, nicely done. Alright, how you feeling. Good. There's a DVD set, if you're interested, it's on our website, or in the bookstore here called spirit versus matter and it addresses things along these lines.
It has topics like the spiritual world versus the material world or The divine I am versus the ego. I am not has some topics along these lines. So if you can check that out if you like. Alright.
