Love knows no guilt

What we perceived as guilt is anything done without love. By projecting guilt, we take a loveless act and attempt to create an identity from it. So, rather than correcting lovelessness, guilt only attempts to assure its continuation.

Guilt, which is rooted in fear, is a strange concept of the ego designed only to make ego real. Any decision to make guilt real is a decision against love. 

If you wish to correct lovelessness, then you can only do so by shining love. Guilt-making teaches nothing helpful and serves no useful purpose. Be love. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Every miracle is but the end of an illusion. (A Course in Miracles)

“In the goal of truth, which you accepted, must all illusions end.”

An illusion is any belief that there is value in something other than love. Faith in anything that is not love is error. The correction of error and the end of illusion is always an expression of love. A miracle is any expression of love. Miracles are easy because love is your natural state.

To express love is to maintain an open mind and open heart. Love gives and creates in a way that is truly helpful and requires no sacrifice. Love sees past ego, instantly forgives, and gently corrects error without any doing. Love is accepting, patient, eternal and unconditional. Love is entirely within you and is only lacking if illusion remains.

There is nothing other than love that you want. The energy of love, which flows abundantly from within you in the absence of illusion, is your identity. Love is what you are. Nothing else about you, your life, your story, or your situation means anything. Be love and you are complete. Your job is only to dispel illusions of the mind wherever they exist. Be love.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Error can be corrected, and wrong made right. (A Course in Miracles)

Forgiveness is seeing wrong as merely error—as ultimately correctable and unreal.

If wrongs are correctable, then it is our job to correct. Correction is not possible through attack or punishment, and this becomes self-evident when we consider what sin is.

Sin is where love is not. Error is anything done without love. The correction to lack of love is, therefore, perfect love. Perfect love shines the light of truth on error—exposing the illusion and instantly dispelling it.

When truth has been brought to light, error instantly loses its power and allure. With the light of understanding comes the need for complete forgiveness. We forgive ourselves, we forgive our brothers and sisters.

Anything less than total forgiveness is an attempt to make error real. Non-forgiveness would have us cling to a story and create false identities based on the ego’s need to judge, shame, blame and play victim. This is the real error because here you have forgotten about love.

Today we begin to recognize all error as a cry for loving correction. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Darkness cannot recognize light. Only light can recognize light. (Eckhart Tolle)

“Egos are drawn to bigger egos.” -Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now

Ego and spirit cannot communicate. Ego cannot recognize spirit or, if it does, considers it insignificant. An enlightened person identified with spirit, on the other hand, is easily capable of perceiving ego wherever it exists—though may be completely unsuccessful in effectively communicating with it.

No argument can convince an ego to relinquish control over a person or institution. That would be its death, and no entity chooses its own death. The only appropriate response to ego is, therefore, no response at all. No response can change anything for the better. More likely, to respond to ego is merely to activate ego in you by making it real.

Consciousness exists in every being—though a thick ego can appear to block it. It is our job, as teachers of the light, to connect with all beings within the realm of light, consciousness, spirit—which is experienced as the energy of love. You can’t go through an ego to connect in love, but you can go around it.

Giving love in unexpected ways and unconditionally to all without expectation of receiving anything is the only way to shine your light. This renders ego hopeless and unleashes all true power. Anything less than this is just honoring your ego. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

I am.

Consciousness is eternal, which does not mean endless time; rather, no time. All of the universe is here now, where it has always been and always will be.
Movement and change, expansion and contraction is only a playful dance that is taking place in the eternal now. There is joy and pain, birth and death, struggle and triumph, gains and losses, and I am attached to none of it because none of it means anything.

We evolve to the next level as we dis-identify with thought form become aware of ourselves as the conscious observer behind the mind. Here we are one, we are invulnerable, we are at peace, we are the source of energy, the source of love, and we are eternal.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

What we think we want is not what we need.

Fortunes are made by those willing and able to give people what they think they want. We are easily sold junk food, meaningless distractions, temporary escape and unaffordable luxuries that make us fatter, sicker, less brilliant, less happy and less free. This stuff is easy to sell because the ego is buying and the ego is insane.

But if you truly love your brothers and sisters—I mean you deeply want to heal, to inspire, to open new possibilities, to help people end suffering and realize their potential—even if you know exactly how to do it, your mission becomes almost impossible because nobody seems willing to buy what they truly need.

What we think we want is the stuff of ego. Sure, there are endless rationalizations about why this or that will make us happy—but in the end it never works. We know those deeper needs are real, but the ego will never allow them to be met.

The question then becomes: is it possible to sell people what they think they want and then deliver what they truly need? Perhaps this is a question to be taken very seriously by all true healers. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Too often, we project unreal images of ourselves and then we get frustrated when people fail to understand us. On social media, we show only our most fabulous selves—images that aren’t totally honest because there are deeper truths and needs which remain unexpressed and unfulfilled. We have grown accustom to showing only our surface selves while our true selves remain hidden, undervalued, never even seen.

Let’s try something different. My nonprofit foundation created a free mobile app that makes meeting the right person easier than fate. Just download “I am by Infobeing” on App Store or Google Play and sign in. Then enter statements describing who you want to meet and the app matches you.

“I am by Infobeing” is conscious social media without ads and without ego. Come with an open heart and mind—willing to extend your love and to trust. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Essence The essence of everything that ever has been and ever will be is eternally present, in an unmanifested state of oneness and perfection. (Eckhart Tolle)

To understand this statement is to awaken to consciousness and to become free from the dream. What we perceive as concrete reality is the manifested. This is the dimension of reality that you can touch, feel, and observe. The manifested is constantly changing, shifting, and unstable. But to understand reality is to understand both the manifested and the unmanifested—and to understand that it is one.

Let’s break this quote down:

“The essence of everything”

Within all matter—the building blocks that make up all things, atoms, molecules, energy—there is a certain aliveness; an essence which, when observed from the soul, is perceived as beauty.

“that ever has been and ever will be”

That same aliveness, which is beyond the realm of perception, flows through and is contained within everything eternally.

“is eternally present”

While form is constantly changing, the essence was never “not there” and nothing is ever lost (it only changes form).

“in an unmanifested state of oneness and perfection.”

The unmanifested is the realm beyond science and observation. This is the void from which we came and to which we return. This is essence, the unmanifested, consciousness, spirit, God—eternally one, beyond threat, and perfect.

The mind cannot grasp this, but your being can. Ponder only this: you know that you came from nothing and will return to nothing. Perhaps this nothingness—the unmanifested—deserves to be taken more seriously. Go deeper than the mind. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The mind can neither recognize nor create beauty. (Eckhart Tolle)

Beauty can only be experienced or created in the absence of thought. Daily meditation and awareness of consciousness creates gaps between thoughts. The larger these gaps become, the more capable we become of experiencing not only beauty, but love, positive energy and inspiration.

What is beauty but total surrender to the present moment. Fully-present, even a leafless tree blowing in the January wind becomes an object of great beauty. In this awakened state, all of life becomes art.

In addition, anything created from this state of being contains within it a beauty that is instantly recognizable to others who are perceiving with presence. That which is created with the mind, however, may only occupy other minds or, at best, distract the mind from its worried thoughts by drawing us into an imagined reality. The mind creates that which is shallow and temporary while the heart’s creations are timeless.

The fundamental challenge of our time is to create gaps between thought. As Leonard Cohen once said, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Gaps of thought are the crack through which all joy, bliss, and beauty may enter and connect directly with your spirit. We continue tomorrow and each day after that. 294

Find out for yourself

The mind tells you that it is reasonable. To make up your mind, you require proof in the form of facts and solid evidence. So you do more research, ask more questions, engage in more debates, but all the while you become increasingly unsure of anything. What a waste of time and energy. Here you are stuck.

It is impossible to know something without doing it or trying it. Led by the so-called “rational” mind, you are taken only to a state of paralysis. If you wish to go beyond paralysis—to have a real breakthrough, to really transform your life—then just ignore your worried thoughts and find out for yourself.

Want to find out what enlightenment is? Try it for yourself. Do you have a dream or fantasy? Something you always wanted to try? Find out exactly what that thing is by doing it. Want to learn to love or trust? Then love and trust. Want to forgive? Then forgive. You don’t need to feed your mind any reasons. In fact, you don’t need to take your thoughts seriously at all.

To know is to do. There is no true knowing beyond direct experience. Be honest and open about who you are and what you want. Say yes to new opportunities as they arise or, better yet, take the lead. Forget about reasons and rationalizations—they only lead to stagnation. Just open your mind, open your heart, and find out for yourself. If something is coming to you—it doesn’t matter whether you planned it previously or not—it is coming to you for a reason. Do not resist your curriculum. Try it. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
