Be yourself and only yourself.
Be careful what you allow
into your body and into your space.
Even the food you put into your body
is crucial to your well-being
and to your sense of Self.
Take care of yourself.

   

When you awaken, you are no longer for or against anything. You have transcended judgment. Life is accepted fully and so too is death. Joy is accepted fully and so too is pain. You are so deeply grounded in the moment of now, that you no longer get caught in the movements of the mind and its world of thought and emotion.

      
Almost all of the decisions and choices we make at the level of mind are motivated at a deep unconscious level by fear and the illusion of separation. Develop the art of looking deeply to see whether the choice you are making is being driven or motivated by fear.  If it is, then you are going further into the mindís world of illusion. You are going further away from the truth of who you are. You are going further away from the place where life is abundant. You are going further into separation. Do not let fear lead you astray. Find that still and silent place within where love abides. Know that the essence of your Being is Love. Let the silent voice of love be your guide.
  
How does silence find its way out of that noisy, chattering mind? That endless maze of thought, concept, opinion, belief? How does perfect silence and pure consciousness find its way out of that maze? Very simply: Bring yourself present with something thatís HERE, in the moment. Then youíll be HERE again. Who is HERE again? I AM.
   

The ego is often deeply involved in the desire to help others. If you do not want your ego to be involved in this way, do not be available for others unless you really want to be available. Do not feel that you should be available. Don't sacrifice yourself in any way. Don't go against your true feelings. Don't carry the cross for anyone else. Make sure that there's no sense that helping others makes you a better person or that it will gain you easy access into Heaven.  Don't be a martyr.

     

We are on a journey of becoming that which we already are.
That is the impossible paradox of our lives.

If you have a belief that the people who love you will leave you,
then sure enough, it will happen. Over and over again. So you had
better become aware of your unconscious beliefs. They are creating
your experience of life. They are based on your past experiences,
and mostly they are formed in your early childhood. As long as these
beliefs remain unconscious, there is no way to be released from them.

   

If you really want to help, then help others to be more present. Help others
to free themselves from the past. Help others to take responsibility
for themselves. Help them to see how they are creating their own suffering.
Every now and then, you will encounter innocent ones who are suffering
through no fault of their own, particularly animals and children.
Do not hesitate! Help them.

   

When you learn to take responsibility for yourselves, then you will
start taking responsibility for the planet. The planet is being destroyed
by your abandonment of responsibility. You assume that you own the
planet. And ownership confers upon you the right to do as you like.
You do not own this beautiful planet. You are simply a guest here.
