#Inner #Voice: 2015-02-28

Five clues to hearing your inner voice.
1. There is never an argument or a debate.
2. There is soft speech, never loud speech.
3. There is no pressure or demands to listen.
4. There is never lecturing from your inner voice.

5. There is intimation and a whisper that is easily ignored in favor of following your “knowing mind” aka ego.

#Communication #Influence: 2015-02-27

You can’t control how people talk to you, but you can influence it by how you respond.
You can’t change how people talk to you, but you can change how you respond to it.
You can’t change how people talk to you, but you can often improve it by responding with kindness.
You can’t change how people talk to you, but you can make the most of it by acting like a good example.

You can’t change how people talk to you, but you can change how you process it with your mind and heart.

#Joke #Sarcasm: 2015-02-25

You say you were only kidding, but your victim was not laughing.
You say you were only kidding, but you were boosting your petty ego by making fun of someone else.
You say you were only kidding, but trying to shame another to gain pride for yourself is no laughing matter.
You say you were only kidding, but your sarcasm did not lighten the mood and it was painful for your victim.

You say you were only kidding, but trying to make someone else feel inferior so you can feel superior is no joke.

#Conscience #Integrity: 2015-02-24

When you see your conscience coming from others, then, if you have any sense of self left, you want to resist or change them.
When you see your conscience coming from some individual, then, if you are at all alive, you want to resist or change him or her.
When you see your conscience coming from yourself, then, if you have a genuine sense of self, you want to listen and follow it.
When you see your conscience coming from within, then, if you are at all spiritual, you want to listen and devote yourself to it.

Trying to change or fix your conscience in society, groups, or others will never work or bring you the integrity and peace that comes only from following within.

Tell yourself that each little task is a privilege, because you are alive to do it.
Tell yourself that each little task is easy and enjoyable, because it is simple to do.

Tell yourself that each little task is a privilege, because not everyone alive can do them.

#Fear #Stupid: 2015-02-16

If you are afraid to do anything stupid, then you won’t do anything—and that is stupid.

#Believe #Story: 2015-02-15

Why do you believe that your babbling self-talk constitutes the story of your life?
Why do you believe that some noises in your head constitute the story of your life?
Why do you believe that some images in your head constitute the story of your life?
Why do you believe that some looping feelings in your head constitute the story of your life?

Why do you believe that some looping memories in your head constitute the story of your life?

#Story #None: 2015-02-14

The story you think you are in is not a story.
The story you think you are in does not exist.
The story you suffer for is just a delusion.
The story you plan and plot for is just a dream.

The story you live and die for has never existed except as imagination and deception.

#Gold #Bad #Eyes: 2015-02-13

Gold dust is bad when on your eyes and fame and fortune are bad when on your heart.
Gold dust is bad when on your eyes and superiority and pride are bad when on your heart.
Gold dust is bad when on your eyes and trying and pretending are bad when on your heart.
Gold dust is bad when on your eyes and privilege and entitlement are bad when on your heart.

Gold dust is bad when on your eyes and attachment and claiming are bad when on your heart.

#Results #Effort #Work: 2015-02-12

Being given work does not mean also being given any results from that work.
Find your joy in the work you were given to do, not in any results from that work.
Always know that results are independent of effort, but no effort assures no results.
The person who can work happily with no results is the child of God.

Work with joy and accept all results with gratitude.

#Work #Results #Right: 2015-02-11

The work is not the results and the results are not the work.
Work is one gift and results are a second and separate gift.
You have the right to do the work you were given; but, you have no right to any results from that work until those results are given.
Be grateful for the work you were given, and be thankful for any results that come from the work you were given to do.

You have the right to the work you have, but you have no right to any results from that work.

#Oneness #Unity #God: 2015-02-10

Is God in everything? No, but everything is in God such that you can find God everywhere since all creation floats on His power.
Is everything one? No, but God is the One source such that you can find Him as the One sustaining force of everything.
Is everyone God? No, but everyone lives in God such that God can be found around everyone.
Can anyone become God? No, but everyone can live in God and share in His Spirit so that we become part of and one with God’s Kingdom.

Can we become everything as one? No, but a pure heart can be aware of the One Power that sustains and hosts all; thereby, a pure heart can share in the oneness of all things through the oneness of God sustaining all.

#Know #Do #Be: 2015-02-09

No one has ever done anything.
No one has ever been anything.
No one has ever changed anything.

No one has ever controlled anything.

#State of #Mind #Better: 2015-02-08

The state of mind that criticizes is not a better state of mind than the state of mind that is criticized.
The state of mind that persecutes is not a better state of mind than the state of mind that is persecuted.
The state of mind that suppresses is not a better state of mind than the state of mind that is suppressed.
The state of mind that punishes and tortures is not a better state of mind than the state of mind that is punished and tortured.

The state of mind that damns and condemns is not a better state of mind than the state of mind that is damned and condemned.

How is your whining palliative?
How is your whining profitable?
How is your whining productive?

How is your whining preventative?

How is your whining going to cheer me up?
How is your whining going to lift my spirits?

We have tired to tame and overcome human nature with right law, but it has always failed.
We have tired to tame and overcome human nature with right belief, but it has always failed.

#Know #Be #Nothing: 2015-02-04

The best you can know is nothing.
The best you can do is nothing.
The best you can be is nothing.
Empty of knowing, you can be a useful host for knowing.
Empty of doing, you can be a useful host for doing.

Empty of being, you can be a useful host for the One Being.

#Home #Direction: 2015-02-03

Ego is not the direction home.
Pride is not the direction home.
Shame is not the direction home.
Self-talk is not the direction home.

Self-esteem is not the direction home.

#Believe #Self: 2015-02-02

Why do you believe that your babbling self-talk constitutes a self?
Why do you believe that some noises in your head constitute a self?
Why do you believe that some images in your head constitute a self?
Why do you believe that some looping feelings in your head constitute a self?

Why do you believe that some looping memories in your head constitute a self?

#Self #None: 2015-02-01

The self you think of is not a self.
The self you think of does not exist.
The self you suffer for is just a delusion.
The self you plan and plot for is just a dream.

The self you live and die for has never lived nor can it die.

#Talk #About #Yourself: 2015-01-31

The only person you can talk about is yourself.
The only person you have ever talked about is yourself.
“Yourself” in the above two lines is your ego, not your true self.
You see, hear, and speak only ego unless you are a little child or enlightened.

Likewise, others are always talking about their own egos as if they were talking about others or life.
