As many well know, Jesus the Christ came here to bless and teach us many good things, among these being:

That we are not alone,

That we are pure and perfect beings born with free will,

That we are here to share Truth and Universal Love,

That by the power of our mind we can see a better way,

That by faith, we cannot be attacked,

That by forgiveness we find peace and happiness again, and

That we are truly loved!

Thus, in despair or happiness, we can inwardly affirm that,

“I Am Loved.”  And so we are.

From the heart wishing all: A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

“Love cannot be described; it can only be felt.”

~Paramahansa Yogananda, Founder of SRF

(Self Realization Fellowship Church of all Religions)

 Though our gifted poets and artists in  the word have often done a great job of describing the effects of true love, still each of us must ultimately find our own path to love and express it fully in the world.

Some of us find love early in life, are able to recognize it and basically live a happy and meaningful life, thus evolving our self and the world with every breath we take.

While some of us are destined to search a longtime for love’s presence, often suffering dearly in the process.

Love’s Mysteries

Yet, the path of true love will never fail its relentless seeker, who has now become a master teacher…first unto itself. And so, at long last, love is finally revealed to its devout student and all of its wondrous mysteries heretofore hidden beneath its mighty wings!

Of course, the very first mystery revealed is that love was there all the time, as it was Love who created us and not humanity who seemly created it! Thus the heart is truly opened. As we began to unravel this great mystery, we are able to see the world’s ancient illusions about love, the ultimate source of all our pain and suffering.

Thus we resolve to choose love and not settle for love’s illusions, which generally revolve around having world power and material wealth. And so the journey continues…often through fallow fields of empty hearts reaching out for love and friendship yet bound by its own fears.

A True Heart Never Travels Alone

Of course, with love being sufficient unto itself, a true heart never travels alone. Now open to expressions of true love found in beautiful music, dance, wisdom of the ages, nature’s magnificent abundance and real friends on love’s path, the true heart is never a lonely hunter. Thus it offers to all it meets, the way to real love, ever-new joy and inner peace.

Love’s Attributes

So what is love exactly? Though love cannot be described, as love is not of our material world, we can appreciate love’s attributes. Thus, where inner peace resides in our hearts, there is love. Where our primal need to take and store has significantly transformed to our need to share with others, there love is. Where we neither want nor need anything from our friends, save the truth, there love is. And where we are truly happy all (or most) of the time, there love is and has been there all the time. And so it is!

So, Dear Reader here is wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day.

Do keep the faith and remember you are truly loved by the greatest lover of them all…our Beloved Creator.

 “Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.”

 ~ A Course in Miracles

At present, viewer interest in zombies, vampires, werewolves and other such terrifying images seemly abound on primetime television and in our theatres these days. Unlike the scary movies of yesteryear where evil was clearly delineated and ultimately destroyed, today’s fearsome creatures not only look human but some are imbued with the ability to fall in love and create lasting relationships. How strange is that? Or is it!

Ever wonder what our fascination with the macabre really is about? Or why we are frightened of such and avoid it like the plague? Or why we are sometimes drawn to such imagery?

Of course, most of us generally find the supernatural quite entertaining, a pause from our daily routine and nothing much more. For many, make-believe fear can be a lot of fun as long as it is contained in a scary movie, a thrilling carnival ride or during Halloween. And so we brush it off at the end of it.

Yet, for those of us who are more sensitive, inquisitive or intuitively believe in the supernatural, a scary movie tends to haunt us long after the show is over. And so we anxiously begin to wonder.

So begins that which oft-turns out to be a lifelong search for the truth. Yet, we are far from recognizing the initiation of this ancient quest at the moment. If we are anxious enough and become dedicated enough, we are ultimately led to discern the truth from illusions and the real learning begins. Once open to truth, though not yet proficient with it, sometimes a person will walk up with a strange message, one you will hear and even accept but let it register far in the recesses of your mind.

Stranger at an Art Show

Years ago, while suffering from, yet another, unrequited love interest, one day a stranger at an exclusive art show I was attending walks up to me and begins addressing my situation, though rather indirectly. Recently, I had written my love ideal a heartfelt letter seeking his attention and understanding. Sadly, the letter was on its way containing his very heartless answer. I would receive it the next day.

Of course, such communiqué would have sent me spiraling into depression. Thus, having to take a sick day off work to mope around watching classic romantic movies on television or go on a mad shopping spree. Well, this did not happen! Owing, no doubt, to this strange conversation and the unusual person talking to me, thankfully I was saved from such devastation though deeply hurt nonetheless.

Besides being one of the artists whose work was on display, my messenger was also psychic but never said so. He then proceeds to give me a reading though it didn’t seem like it. Given that this event was held on a Sunday afternoon in a fashionable home offering a lovely buffet, with plates of good food and champagne flutes in hand we chatted comfortably. Among other things he said something that rarely surfaces for me, probably because it’s difficult to narrate.

Nonetheless, I’ll try. Basically, he said that the people we see walking around are not really as they seem; that our outer bodies are merely a casing. That inside this casing we bounce as we walk and look quite different, some even look like monsters or strange animals and others more angelic… It would take me years of learning to understand how to apply his message.

A Business Associate’s Recent Betrayal

Some say that our most difficult relationships often teach us our greatest lessons. This is basic a truth and I have found that the clarity always appears after I practice forgiveness. I have been avoiding this person for months and really hoped not to see her. Of course, we have a business contract, so we have to see each other occasionally. The other day I decided to give her a friendly hug. After feeling the warm vibration through her hand resting gently on my back, I resolved that she could not be as bad as I thought.

Wrong! Girlfriend screwed up again.

Feeling hurt and betrayed, I became angrier at myself for opening my heart to this person, again, and trusting her again to do the right thing without a lot of hassle! Sadly, I had to realize that I just cannot trust this person, which hurt. So I began wrestling with exactly how I am supposed to relate to this person in my heart and mind.

Being a very passionate person, I’ve finally learned how being angry at others actually hurts me deeply. So I don’t do that anymore, which is not always easy but I manage. Knowing that this is a very angry person who projects her deeply held anger when she can and obviously not willing to change her ways after being told, here again I wonder about having to be on guard, withhold my humanity or kind thoughts about her. These questions kept haunting me.

Finally I Really Get It

While this person is incapable of a sustainable affection for others, she, as with most narcissists, according to the experts, can appear warm and compassionate at times. As long as it is in her best interest, that is! Thus, it is best to expect nothing from her! And yes, do be on guard when dealing with her. This is okay. This is not hating but accepting how this person behaves and treat accordingly. Yes God loves her but remains silent owing to the misuse of her free will.

Ultimately we learn that those who love God, feels it and gladly shares it with others. While those who willfully reject God’s love secretly fear God and the love He shares with all of us. Herein is the real difference. And so, those who allow anger and hatred to fester in their hearts ultimately block God’s Love and the living joy it truly brings.

The Zombies Among Us

Simply put, the zombies among us are those dead to the living joy within them. Actually, they look quite normal. Some are average people like our colleagues, our managers and supervisors at work, our so-called friends and such; while others are prominent people and even politicians in our government, whose inner characteristics range from acute selfishness and greed to unbridled contempt for humanity. With no respect for the truth, they will lie and cheat at the drop of a hat, and even steal from their own grandmother. Yet life and love is ever near.

According to A Course in Miracles, only love is real. Thus love never hurts, which has to mean that it is what we have made of love that truly hurts us.

In truth, it is the lack of love flowing through our minds and hearts that is the lot of the miserable. This, in reality, translates to the indolent known as zombies, the insatiable known as vampires, and the vicious known as werewolves who walk this earth wanting yet dead to the love and joy within. Which is a divine gift meant to give life, a life more abundant than ever before.

And so we are each destined to awaken to the Eternal Life within us. And so it is. Keep the faith.

If you are reading this, you woke up this morning

Your favorite café was open

A child’s innocent smile warmed your heart

The bus was on time

Someone picked up your trash

Your iPhone works

A friend told you the truth

The street lamps came on at day’s end

Someone is praying for you

Think on these things and be grateful!
