03-22-17 Toward a Rapid Awakening
Description: Your spiritual awakening can be relatively rapid, and two of the fastest ways are through silence and relationship. Spending time in silent prayer or meditation is a great way to stir up everything up in the mind that was unconscious. And relationships (not just romantic) will also mirror everything in your unconscious so you can see all those thoughts and forgive them.
It still may take some time for your grievances and attack thoughts to come up fully into awareness, but your progress depends solely on your willingness and desire to know the truth. Do you really want to experience nothing but the truth? And are you willing to let everything up that was hidden up into awareness that it may be released? Thankfully, the blocks that seem to be in your way are not real, and so this awakening need not be a struggle. Each illusion will gently dissolve each time you join with Spirit in your heart, and you will rejoice in the awareness of What You Are!

03-08-17 Love is Our Source
The goal of spiritual practice is to be in the flow of presence, to be tuned into Spirit. Decision-making becomes simple and easy when this is the case, for we can ride the intuitive flow of our heart and trust in our Spirit-Given destiny.
The ego, on the other hand, is the attempt to think apart from God. As long as we are invested in the world of form, the experience of flow escapes us. True forgiveness is necessary to see the world in a unified way so that our vision is clear. We can become just as invested in peace of mind as we were in specific outcomes that the world is always seen from this higher perception.
Who is our source? Love is our Source. When we accept that, everything changes.

02-22-17 Awakening Through Desire
The speed of our awakening is not determined by anything but our DESIRE to go Home. Surrendering to Spirit will always be interpreted by the ego as a sacrifice of power, yet in truth we are being restored to the full power of the Son of God that we are. When we completely surrender and say yes to Spirit’s Plan for our life, we can literally move mountains. The ego will put up any roadblocks possible to deter us from saying yes to Spirit’s Plan, yet Spirit will never give up on us. We will continue to be guided past each of the ego’s roadblocks and led safely Home. While we still seem to be in this world, our only function is forgiveness and peace will be our reward.

02-08-17 Let Spirit Decide
Description: The goal of spiritual practice is to be in the flow of Presence, to be tuned into Spirit, and wiling to listen to and follow the intuitive flow. Decision-making becomes very simple and easy when we let Spirit be in charge. As it says in A Course in Miracles, “When you have learned how to decide with God, all decisions become as easy and as right as breathing. There is no effort, and you will be led as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path in summer.” (T-14.IV.6.1,2). Enjoy your spiritual journey by allowing Spirit to make all decisions for you, rather than attempting to make some of them yourself. Only thus will peace be known as an authentic experience.
