Independence Day – venice class – Jul 2, 2013

Get clear on the fact that YOU are not an independent person. You are totally dependent on the Life Principle! The problem is thinking that you are independent, that you are separate, that you are on your own, that you are stranded, abandoned . . . and it’s up to you. That’s the problem!

We have turned being independent into a virtue. Yes, we are independent from the British. But, in a more fundamental sense, get clear that you and I are NOT independent of the Life Source.

You are totally dependent on the Life Force . . . the Life Principle. You only exist because The Entirety is being Itself — and it is looking like You. Don’t strive for independence. And, whenever there is a symptom in your experience of, “Oh wow, I’m feeling stranded. I’m feeling alone. I’m feeling like I can’t do this,” bust yourself. Do not believe yourself in those moments.

That is called having a "shift of perception," a shift of understanding about what is going on. You will find yourself having more optimism, more hope, renewed vigor, more inspired living, more faith, more gusto, more clarity . . . and less of the "I’m-just-doing-time" mindset.

Your Real Pre-Existing Condition – venice class – Jun 11, 2013

You are the specific and unique Self-expression of God. You are only here because Something is being you. That Something is The All, The Infinite, The Oneness in infinite individuation. You and I and all of us are specific individuations of the unity of that Oneness. This is your real pre-existing always-existing condition. Your real DNA is G-O-D. LOVE. When you sense into that for even just a dab of a moment, you start feeling loved. This is healing.
