There is no power outside myself.


Once admit that there is any Power outside yourself, however beneficent you may conceive it to be, and you have sown the seed which must sooner or later bear the fruit of "Fear" which is the entire ruin of Life, Love and Liberty. (Thomas Troward) 

Therefore the power is inside, which is where I am and what I am as well.

There is no power outside myself. There is no room for fearful thoughts, I turn away from them and they do not exist. I am an immortal being so therefore there is no time for fear, anxiety and worry and doubt, now and forever now. There is only the experience of my being here and now.

I’m a child of God, a son of the infinite. I’m illumined and inspired. I’m happy, joyous, and free. One with God is a majority, and if God be for me, who on earth can be against me?

Source always is here.


Life with all its limitless possibilities is a continual outflow from the Infinite toward which I may turn in any direction that I desire.

    This is so because Source is impersonal and leaves me free to go on any pathway —  Source is not concerned or worried about my choice of pathways, which I am mentally and emotionally interpreting as moving  toward or away from Source. When I mentally, emotionally move away from Source, I will feel some kind of less-than-good sensation. I cannot actually move away from Source in reality — because Reality Is All There Is — but I can think as if I can. I sometimes forget about my natural, eternal and irreversible freedom that allows me to freely think and move into experience as I so desire.  Sometimes, I misinterpret my choice when I listen to and accept — and believe — ego-mind’s declaration that Source has abandoned me and therefore I am “all alone” or “lost”. I have somehow temporarily forgotten that no matter where I think or feel I am, Source always is here.

Unsolvable Awe of The Mystery of Life


When I am aligned with Source, or as some say, connected with Source, then I enter what is called the Kingdom of Source, or the Realm of Source, or simply, Source. I discover — or more accurately, remember — that I have inherited this kingdom and everything in it, without requirements, without chores or assignments or duties or tests, without question.

In this experiential realm of eternal newness I can discern and feel my inextricable beingness, or nowness, with the infinity of all there is, and only is, which gives rise to the indescribable feeling of Everlasting Peace, the inexplicable understanding of Neverending Knowing, and the delectable, Unsolvable Awe of The Mystery of Life.

Life is a Spiral

The Risen ask us to contemplate a spiral as we journey through this book. The spiral is an ancient emblem of life, transcendence, and eternity, running deep through all earthly cultures. It evokes deep relaxation and calm. It is revealed as a living symbol throughout Nature ~ in pinecones, the petals and seed heads of flowers, the arrangement of leaves on a stem; water spinning in a whirlpool, the shell of a snail, the winds circling the earth; the horns of a goat, the coils of a snake, and even a head of cauliflower. Stars, galaxies, and people dance in waves of living spirals. Spirals are found throughout our body ~ in the proportions of its components, in our fingerprints, in the movement of the blood as it travels through us, and in the pattern of the hair on our heads. The very strands of our DNA intertwine in an animated spiral.

Life is also a spiral ~ a sacred relationship of matter, time, and space that leads to a continual transcendence of them. Life’s presence and actions are its own evidence ~ of itself and of its immortality. The center of life’s spiral is the center of the Self as it moves through eternity, never the same at any moment, yet never losing the essential spirit of its Origin. Life is the Original Spirit. The spiral often seems to be a maze, an icon of the life journey of a human being, seemingly struggling alone along an unknown path, while trying to discover its center. Many of us will spend a lifetime worrying about whether we are journeying toward or away from the center.

For those of us still earth-embodied, our spiral path will change. In fact, it simply cannot exist without change, for the spiral of all life is a process. Upon our transition to places of existence beyond this planet, our journey will transmute into a new and more intensely living motif. We will each begin this transition in our own unique way, and then we will awaken as a Risen One into a new world. Instead of continuing to manifest as a seemingly isolated island encircled by a sea of unforgiving loneliness, a new life-spiral and a new way of being will emerge. As these new beings, we will rejoin all whom we have ever loved and who have loved us, including many old and new friends and lovers. We will emerge as an integral part of an infinitely spiraling community of like-minded others, to dwell in ever-present joy, learning, service, and love.

- From The Risen: Dialogues of Love, Grief & Survival Beyond Death -

What, then, is Authentic Self?


What, then, is Authentic Self? The ancient dictum “Know Thyself” is the eternal, and private, open-ended answer. Once the question has been raised, the answer can be revealed only as truth reveals itself through our individualized Self of Authorship and its various states of conscious awareness, and as we become aware of the awareness. These states of awareness are experientially known through vibratory sensation, which is feeling.

Authentic Self will inevitably recognize the feeling of its pathless truth in its various states, thereby recognizing Itself as an eternal, immortal individualization as It moves inwardly from any felt point of “now,” and forever now, forever onward.

True alignment is tuning myself to the frequency of my Authentic Self. Upon alignment, everything is drawn back into correct placement relative to me. To the degree I allow this placement of the unlimited intelligence of the Universe — which is focused only on Harmony — I become a cooperative component of this Greatest of Harmonia Vitiae. (The Harmony of Life.) Put briefly, alignment is ceasing to include the idea of limitations in my conception of the working of the All-Creating Spirit.

Curious, unbiased and unafraid.


Curious, Unbiased and Unafraid. 

“Unbiased” is like sitting in the middle of a seesaw, perfectly balanced with no anxiety or concerns ... just quiet yet alert, observing with curiosity. Bias or judgment is like moving to one of the ends of the seesaw which then automatically activates an experience of polarity. Now, there is one-and-the-other, instead of just one. I can continue to remain curious; I could feel new feelings — perhaps even anxiety or some other form of fear. The shifting energies of polarity can be particularly useful, like walking around an interesting three-dimensional sculpture and seeing and feeling the contrast and diversity from different perceptual attitudes and stances. There is no need to bring anxiety, worries or concerns with me as I ponder the play and movement of the art of life and living. I can move back to the middle of the seesaw with this new experience’s information which will shift me into yet another dimensional awareness, totally different from where I was. This shifting is also rising. The middle of the seesaw, the unbiased state or attitude of non-judgement, is being — it is life; moving to a polarized position is doing — which is living. Thus, I can see and participate in the universe as a function similar to the interplay of wave and particle; wave, and then particle; life, living, life, living, being, doing, being, doing; resting and playing, resting and playing, and rising, happily ever after.
