You must always remember this. When hardships come, don't automatically ask God to deliver you from them. Perhaps it would be wiser to ask: What do I have to learn before I am delivered from this problem?
Your state of consciousness today is not the same as it used to be or as it will be in two weeks or a couple of years from now.
Youth are the leaders of tomorrow. Those who practice the Spiritual Exercises of Eck will know how to lead by the example of love instead of the methods of force and lies, which are the standards of leaders under the spell of the negative force.
A person with a golden heart is filled with love and likes to see something that he starts completed and done well.
Children have the wisdom of God and are closer to it than many people who have spent years in this world gaining all kinds of knowledge about the nature of religion. Children have it naturally.
Heaven isn?t a place, it?s a state of consciousness.
Life is a stream of happy and unhappy experiences, because that leads to Soul's purification. How do you get by in the dark times? Try to give love to someone, especially then.
People are usually too busy counting the things they don't have. They notice how much more money their neighbor has, how much further ahead in spiritual unfoldment someone else is, and so on. But if we stop to count our blessings, to realize how much we do have and be grateful for it, then the heart is kept open to love and all the gifts that love brings, including the possibility of healing.
The outflow that comes from giving of oneself opens the door to spiritual unfoldment while the attitude of taking locks it.
We are learning to work with intuition, which actually is Soul giving us gentle guidance to make our life better.
You can?t make yourself closer to God by hating someone else, whether you believe it?s righteous anger or not. The relationship between Soul?which is you?and God is one of love. And where there?s pure love, there is no room for anger of any kind.
A Seed for Contemplation: Creative people who cherish the gift of life often slip into the secret chambers of the creative mind. Their solutions are well-rounded, more sensible than those of people who rely solely upon reason as their mainstay. Gratitude unseals fountains of creativity, because a grateful person is relaxed. This allows him to take stock of his circumstances with an objective mind. A creative person often gets three-dimensional answers to his problems. ? ,
Contemplate sweetly on love, and the wisdom of God shall find you.
Herein, lies the key to love. Love builds bridges. Soul exists because God loves It. Soul equals Soul; no one Soul is greater than another. Experience the greatest love of all.
Life is trying to teach us one thing: to see the Eck, Holy Spirit, in the eyes of all we meet. This means that those who have the enlightenment, or work themselves into it, have the ability to know that the Spirit of God is always with them. From then on they find peace and contentment and accept themselves without apology.
Self-Realization. Soul recognition. The entering of Soul into the Soul Plane and there beholding Itself as pure Spirit. A state of seeing, knowing, and being.
The point of any religion should be this: how to open your heart to love.
We are personally responsible for our own state of consciousness. As Soul unfolds toward total freedom, It understands total responsibility must be accepted for every thought and action.
You know your general purpose is to become a Co-worker with God. So how do you identify your personal goal?
A solution exists for every challenge to our peace of mind. There is always a way, somehow. What holds us back from happiness is our lack of faith in the mighty power of the Holy Spirit to address our most humble needs.

Humanity starts at the level of the human consciousness and makes its deliberate way to the summit, which is God Consciousness.
Love does not come to those who seek it, but to those who give love. It is a binding force between souls who have nothing to give but themselves to one another.
So, for this is an imperfect universe. The perfection isn't here.
The quest for God is the quest for true happiness.
