Life is about remembering the Truth of who we are.  It’s about realizing the divinity of ALL life.  For most of us humans, this remembering feels like learning.  It feels like growth, change, and development.

Imagine the determination to develop that a single blade of grass has when it finds the strength to break through a cement sidewalk! We humans have within us that very same strength and power, plus much more!  

Is it possible to tap into my strength and power while complaining, criticizing and condemning?  No, of course not.

How often, instead of encouraging my own impulse to grow and develop, did I talk myself into remaining in the same familiar place? Thousands of times! 

How many times did I hold onto an outgrown opinion about myself or others?  Millions of times!

But no more!  Now, I’m interested in awakening to the Truth that sets me free, and that’s ALL I’m interested in.

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position. That is why Emerson said that foolish consistency was the hobgoblin of little minds… “

And, in the Manual for Teachers of A Course in Miracles we’re told that Honesty is consistency and that is the #2 characteristic of God’s teachers.

I love that. This is the kind of consistency that is deeply healing. I aspire to be consistently loving. I’m not there yet, but I soon will be.

Honesty does not apply only to what you say. The term actually means consistency. There is nothing you say that contradicts what you think or do; no thought opposes any other thought; no act belies your word; and no word lacks agreement with another. Such are the truly honest. At no level are they in conflict with themselves. Therefore it is impossible for them to be in conflict with anyone or anything.” ~ Manual for Teachers, Chapter 4

Each and every moment offers us the possibility of new development through learning and remembering. Today we can seize opportunity to listen to our inner voice and, like that determined blade of grass, break through the cement of our old thinking and outdated opinions. Yes!

God is for each of us, always with us! Believe it and we WILL see it. We CAN be truly masterful!

I AM a learner. I AM willing to access my potential and release the cement of old thinking right NOW!

Professional Trainings for Teachers, Counselors & Ministers 

If you think you might like to explore a spiritual career, then check out some of my programs like Finding Freedom From Fear and the trainings I offer.  I am offering two trainings in October.  They are each deeply healing, and they are both part of larger professional programs, but anyone can take them.

Right now there are SUPER Early Bird specials on my How to Lead & Create A Workshop training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free workshop, and then there’s my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive which is a great program for anyone interested in becoming a better listener, cultivating compassion or intuition.
