Your beliefs


It is your beliefs that stop you from experiencng Others As They Really Are. It is your bliefs that stop you from experiencing Yourself As You Really Are. And it is your beliefs that stop you from experiencing God As I Am really.

The Invitation



It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

There is no victim

What you think, what you say and what you do creates the experience that you call "you" and the conditions and circumstances of your life.
If you think that you are a victim, say that you are a victim and act as if you are a victim, you will experience yourself as a victim inspite of the fact that you are not.

Seeking


Seeking the face of God in everthing, everyone, everywhere, all the time, and seeing his hand in every happening - that is contemplation in the heart of the world

Make the change


You are the first cause, and you are the first effect. You are the last cause and the last effect. So, inside of you is the only place that change can be made.

Thought, word and deed


As you believe, so will it be done unto you. That is because what you believe, you will think. What you think, you will say. What you say, you will do. Thought, word and deed arise out of pure Consciousness
