Excellence is a habit.
What if Jesus didn’t have special powers? What if he was the great example instead of the great exception? What if as he said, “Greater things than this shall you do also,” and we all have access to the same power he used? Well, we do!

We access that power by moving way beyond our comfort zones and trusting ourSelves, the part that Jesus trusted. We can’t discover new oceans unless we have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

There are no mistakes only opportunities to grow and learn. Every day, every minute – this minute, right now – is an opportunity to grow deeper into relationship with ourSelves. Excellence is a habit.

“Everyone has got to die, but I have always believed an exception would be made in my case.” – William Saroyan

In the story of Lazarus, Jesus asks his followers to roll the stone aside. The stone is a metaphor. He did not ask God to do it, because as in our own case, it is we who have put the blocks to grace in place and it is we who must remove them…with God’s help. As Emerson advised, it is we who must get our bloated nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits. Grace and blessings are always everywhere present, no matter the appearance. Haven’t you experienced that? In the midst of a traffic jam, a terrible bit of news (and there’s so much bad news lately) the calm feeling of the peace that passeth understanding? For a moment our egos were gone and only the empty/fullness of spirit remained.

My hope last week was that I might see the humor in our national condition this week. I do not. There’s plenty of humor out there, but not in the reality of our national condition. In fact as he does everyday, even every minute, the President of the United States – God it disgusts and pains me to use that title for Trump – made it worse in his remarks yesterday, actually saying he was grateful to Putin for expelling our diplomats because we wanted to reduce our payroll. Can you imagine? Grateful? Reduce our payroll? Those diplomats will not be off the payroll, they will be re-assigned.
I’m sure today his zombie followers will be telling us it was just a joke…. Speaking of zombie Republicans, a Washington Post survey reported that 50% of Republicans would be OK if their Master ‘postponed’ the 2020 election. More proof that the Republican Party has become the cult of Trump.

Little deaths prevent big deaths. Imagine if trees never shed their leaves, or if waves never turned over, or if clouds never dumped their rain and disappeared? Cells die everyday. That’s how the body lives. Resisting this process we suffer and shrivel up. We must let what’s growing underneath make its way to becoming the new skin of our lives.

Clinging to chaos – wanting to change, resist or fight it, is a burdensome mistake simply because we are not at peace. It would be one thing if our constant resisting and fighting made us happy, but it doesn’t. Yet we go on pretending that faulting others and seeing ourselves as innocent victims works for us. If we forgive instead of fighting, we are bringing our ego perceptions to our spiritual reality.

We are saying for Selfish reasons, I let this perceived ‘sin’ go and instead choose to experience it with mySelf, not because God tells me to, or because it is wonderful, noble and holy, but because I will feel better and the world will seem to work better, too.

Friday (not so funny) Funnies

I’m sad, disappointed and annoyed with myself because I feel the need to talk about our Nation, Trump and the Republicans. Perhaps next week I’ll be able to see the humor in what’s happening to us….

Trump and the Republicans were elected. Many people who had their doubts about him and his friends voted for them, nonetheless – 55% of college educated white women voted for him; many well-to-do successful people voted for him. It wasn’t just, as much of the media keep saying, the economically deprived and emotionally disenfranchised.

What do these people think now? Do they think it’s all just ‘political,’ a witch hunt, just business as usual, that it will all work out? The true believers believe that. So do those that do not see that the Republican Party has become a cult with Trump as its deity.

Was Hillary really so bad, as bad as Trump? Was it really necessary for the Republicans to choose Party over Nation, stonewall everything Obama did and denigrate the Office of President? That’s how this began and brought us to where we are now.

Each day more of what was there all along is revealed. Is it clear yet that American Democracy faces an existential threat…from within? If more proof is needed, check out Trump’s demagoguery at the rally in West Virginia last night. Is he inviting his partisan true believers, as he invited the Russians durning the campaign, to get involved? Is he inviting them to take matters into their own hands? And, I know this is extreme, but does he want to be the last elected President of the United States?

It finally seems as if Congress is aware of the threat and is taking a few appropriate actions. But will the Republican dominated Congress be able to finally choose Nation over Party and take all the actions necessary to save the Republic?

Looking with the ego, I see a world in chaos. Looking with mySelf, I see the same world without the chaos. It is not a threat to mySelf, but only to myself. I’m safe, healthy and creative as long as stay with mySelf. The very instant I take the chaos seriously – want to change it, resist or fight it – I’m with the ego, and have made the chaos real.

Willingness to be in the world, but not of the world, enables me to look at the ego’s chaos and illusions and deal with them without feeling threatened, in a charge neutral fashion. It’s a question of identity. Who am I really? A spiritual being having and earthly experience, or an earthly being having a spiritual experience? It’s my choice.

Vision or Judgment is our choice, one or the other, but not both. Our experience is of both alternating in time, now judging, now not judging. Yet both are interpretations. Looking with ego, I see a world in chaos. But looking with mySelf, I see a mistaken interpretation. I breathe deeply, center myself and receive a Vision of a greater reality beyond my interpretations. I realize that I, and you, but mistake interpretation for truth. Yet a mistake is not a sin, and reality has not been taken from its throne by our mistakes.

Keeping Campaign Promises

Posted by on Jul 28, 2017 in News | Comments Off on Keeping Campaign Promises

 

Keeping Campaign Promises

Keeping campaign promises is usually a good thing, even a rare thing.

But what if the winner was elected by a minority, not a majority? And what if many of those that voted for the winner were angry, fearful and unknowledgeable?
What if in fact, the majority voted for someone and something else?
Would keeping campaign promises to the angry, frightened ignorant minority be best for the majority?

As the current President of the United States and his minions go about their work, they often justify the pain and disruption they’re causing by saying they’re keeping their campaign promises. Those that support democracy but didn’t vote for this Administration are supposed to be respectful of that and even supportive.

Normally, that would be correct. But the way this Administration was elected and what it is doing is not normal, nor even in the best interests of the majority of voters in the United States of America.

The other candidate won the election by nearly 3,000,000 votes. 49% of those eligible to vote, didn’t. That means that the Administration now keeping its campaign promises is keeping its promises to approximately 25% of the electorate, many of whom voted from fear, anger and ignorance.

Do we want these campaign promises to be kept? Are they good for the Nation and the world? This is still a democracy. Make your voice heard. Tell your Congress person. Get organized and vote for a change in the mid-term election.

What do you really want?
The things we really want outside us are usually stepping stones to feelings we want inside us.
What do you really want to feel most of the time?
Since thought is creative, we’re constantly creating all the time…usually limitations and reasons we can’t have what we want, inside or outside.
Give up grievances, complaining, blaming and negative thinking. Be mindful. When you catch yourself with that kind of thinking, stop, no guilt, and substitute the vision of the feelings you really want.
It takes practice. It’s replacing a habit that’s holding you back with a habit that will propel you forward. Try it. Mindfulness is a muscle. Each time you use it, it grows stronger.

When you experience yourself a victim of something outside yourself, believing that your change of mood is due to anything other than the power of your mind, you not only deny your mind’s power to upset you, you also deny its power to make you peaceful.

Perhaps

I have no neutral thoughts. My feelings of victimization come, not from the world but from a belief in my mind. My Self and salvation are not in the world but in my mind. If I decide someone, some group or something is trying to harm me, I will respond accordingly. I react to my interpretations as if the were true. But they are in my mind. An insane person thinks the world they see is real and does not doubt it. Nor, can they be swayed by facts or questioning their thoughts. But perhaps, just perhaps, they and I are wrong, that there is Something within that knows better and can free us from our delusional thinking.

What would it feel like to be responsible for your own happiness?
Conditional relationships are difficult. They require lots of effort, as in “I will be happy if you just give me what I need.” Here, my happiness is dependent on you. I’ve given my power to you.
What if I keep my power and am responsible for my own happiness, no matter what? How good would that be?
