conscious wellbeing for ourselves & our world
A deluded mind is hell.
the mind is the country of the Buddhas.
When the mind creates the idea of the mind.

For some unknown reason, this makes me think of the spill in the Gulf:
Forgiveness is the means by which we will remember. Through forgiveness the thinking of the world is reversed. The forgiven world becomes the gate of Heaven, because by its mercy we can at last forgive ourselves. Holding no-one prisoner to guilt, we become free. Acknowledging Christ in all our brothers, we recognise His Presence in ourselves. Forgetting all our misperceptions, and with…Continue

Consider that all human beings have within them the same essence of consciousness, and that the process of creativity and genius are attributes of human consciousness. Therefore, genius is a potential that lives within you and every other human being. Many people never get acquainted with this inner world of their personal…Continue

Sin is defined as lack of love (Text, p. 11). Since love is all there is, sin in the sight of the Holy Spirit is a mistake to be corrected, rather than an evil to be punished. Our sense of inadequacy, weakness and incompletion comes from the strong investment in the scarcity principle that governs the whole world of illusions. From that point of view, we seek in others what we feel is wanting in ourselves. We love another in order to get something ourselves. That, in…Continue

Once upon a time there lived a well-intentioned man. This man was sitting in his garden one afternoon when he noticed a newly formed caterpillar’s cocoon. After studying the cocoon for several days and observing no apparent changes, a small opening began to appear in the cocoon’s thick protective shell.
Later that evening, the man saw a butterfly beginning to emerge…Continue

Every time you hear something is “incurable,” know that they have not yet discovered a cure it and you must go within to find your own solution. Know there is an Intelligence greater.
The sun is always shining. Even though clouds many come along and obscure the sun for awhile, the sun is always shining. The sun…Continue

What is this thing called forgiveness? It is so personal.
Perhaps it is the movement from having a broken heart ... to having a mending one.
From the video: "To forgive is to set a prisoner free…
Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach - how you look at things....
Not everybody can be a painter - and there is no need also. If everybody is a painter the world will be very ugly; it will be difficult to live! And not everybody can be a dancer, and there is no need. But everybody can be creative.
Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely…

No mind, no form, I only exist;
Now ceased all will and thought;
The final end of Nature's dance,
I am it whom I have sought.
A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;
Beyond both knower and known;
A rest immense I enjoy at last;
I face the One alone.
I have crossed the secret ways of life,
I have become the Goal.
The Truth immutable is revealed;
I am the way, the God-Soul.
My spirit aware of all the…Continue
