Changing Your Reality

Changing Your Reality

The direction of life is from duality to unity: Today I want to belong. I want to feel safe and at home. I want to be aware of what its like simply to be, without defenses or desires. I will appreciate the flow of life for what it is–my own true self.

I will notice those moments of intimacy with myself, when I feel that I am is enough to sustain me forever. I will lie on the grass looking at the sky, feeling myself at one with nature, expanding until my being fades into the infinite.

The fragmented mind cannot get me to unity, but I have to use it along the way: What does unity really mean to me? What experiences of oneness can I look back upon?

Today I will remember the difference between being at one with myself and being scattered. I will find my center, my peace, my ability to go with the flow. The thoughts and desires that drive me are not the ultimate reality. They are just a way to get myself back to oneness.

I will remember that thoughts come and go like leaves in the wind, but the core of consciousness is forever. My goal is to live from that core.

I am living in many dimensions at once; the appearance of being trapped in time and space is an illusion: Today I will experience myself beyond limitations.

In the same way I will experience love as a light that begins in my heart and spreads out as far as my awareness can reach; as images arise in my mind, I will send love and light in their direction.

, I put my soul in His care, and feel blessed that in this gigazmic multiverse, I am loved by a God that carries me through the darkest nights and delivers me to the new day's dawn. I am here to love according to the teachings of a man who trusted in God even upon the Cross. I can comprehend no higher love. I can have faith in God because of His Love. And I can show compassion towards all - as He demonstrated for us.

In this there is eternal joy, for the world is a dangerous place, but the love we feel is our 'comfort'.

I believe the human heart beats with the passion of our creator, pulsing across all dimensions, and that when we let that passion in us be felt towards one another, we alter the course of events throughout time and space. It is all about LOVE, for each and every one of us, no matter how we must discover it. And it is to our great benefit, when we believe in LOVE. - for the alternative is not to be trusted, not to feel the beauty of living, and not to be enjoyed.

Well, there are quite a few who don't like it here, awfully much,... I suppose Jesus himself found the place a bit on the unfriendly side,... particularly those last 24 hrs. But, perhaps our celebration of living has been misdirected just a tad. Zee, your quest is a worthy and admittedly 'rocky' one. But, after living nearly 64 years myself, I haven't met anyone whose had it truly 'easy', but I have met those who weren't required to do much, or grow much, or change much, or experience the broad spectrum of emotional passions, much - either, and they don't share much* ( at least not agony and the ecstasy aspects of our earth bound living,... ) But, I am human, and have only human understandings of things. When I put my faith in the Unmoved Mover [ as God has sometimes been called ] I release my expectations to know much of anything in this vast cosmos, and settle in for all the love I can experience on all levels of our spiritual manifestation. I pray that when I talk with my Lord, He understands my every flaw with more exactitude than the electrons in an atom. I pray that He sets me on course to fulfill a loving cup for our humanity and all the mysteries of life. I pray that whatever I do is in His control to be used for goodness sake. I let God. - I can do nothing more than my best. I love as much as possible. I serve a Loving Lord. All else is beyond me. Only God is God. And when I close my eyes at night, I put my soul in His care, and feel blessed that in t
