Love is the truth.

There are no levels to truth; only the true and the false.

There are no conflicting truths; rather, all truth is one.

That which is false is nothing, has no value, and can only be considered error.

Nothing can be gained through attack, manipulation, or exploitation.

Anything obtained in dishonesty, while it may appear as gain in this world, ultimately will be lost and will cause great suffering.

Sin is where love is not. -A Course in Miracles

You cannot be faithful to two masters who ask conflicting things of you. (A Course in Miracles)

We cannot pick and choose reality for fantasy or truth for illusion. Attempt to keep fantasy real in any way and you remain lost in doubt and fear. Your reality becomes filled with endless unanswerable questions, “what if” scenarios, worries and regrets.

If spirit is real and you are spirit…if love is real and you are love…then why choose to keep some things hidden? Why not be the truth and live the truth? Be fully what you are. Love and you will be loved. Be honest and receive honesty. Offer help and receive help.

There is no lack in this world, only a belief in separation that keeps us isolated and struggling. We attack and steal from each other rather than creating true value by serving. We are hiding our truths, avoiding our bliss, doubting the very nature of what we are – and for what? Because that is what we have been taught by a world designed to enslave us.

The truth shall set you free. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

What is hidden has no value

Can safety be found in keeping truth to yourself and presenting falseness instead?

We may rationalize that presence, a calm smile and peaceful silence will be enough to inspire and transform others. It’s not and it doesn’t.

This choice to hide your faith, to be superficial or inauthentic, renders you powerless and your existence meaningless. No value can be found in falseness. Offer instead the gift of truth by teaching.

The world is spiritually ignorant and, for this reason alone, humanity is lost in the darkness of egoic insanity and suffering. If you have awakened through spiritual teachings, then share your wisdom. Unleash something of great value into a world crying for your help.

Your life is a total success

If you are reading these daily teachings, congratulations. You must have gone beyond spiritual ignorance; while the vast majority of people on this planet still suffer from this dreadful condition.

Spiritual ignorance means total identification with the constant stream of thinking, always rejecting what is, struggling to get to a “different now” which never arrives. This normal state of stress is only relieved temporarily when they fall below thought, perhaps with the help of substances or during sleep.

But the awakened person has learned how to rise above thought. We know how to access a state of perfect bliss, a feeling of aliveness that others experience only rarely and accidentally. Some must engage in extreme sports to turn off thought. Others might reach true happiness and aliveness only during sex or for a few seconds when observing great beauty.

The successful, or the spiritually awakened, have learned how to enter what Jesus referred to as the Kingdom of Heaven – an inner-state of heightened aliveness, effortless ease, perfect health, safety and peace. We probably aren’t able to stay there all the time, but it is always there – instantly accessible even when sitting in traffic or standing in line at the grocery store.

We who have awakened are called to teach others to free them from the stress, the suffering, and their need for anti-depressants and addictions. The world is filled with suffering. We know the cause and the antidote, which can be taught only through love. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Each moment, we are deciding between either the ego or spirit.

We did not make the ego, nor the fearful suffering that results from following its thought system. With great effort, the world has imposed upon us the ego and we have mastered this insane thought system.

We did not make spirit, nor did we invent the guiltlessness, freedom, peace and joy that flows from following its ways. With no effort, we are it, have been it, and will be the consciousness of spirit eternally.

The choice between the ego and spirit is the most fundamental decision any of us face, and we have free will to choose between the ego and spirit each moment. When we have properly learned what ego is and does, and then we compare it to what spirit is and does, the choice is as obvious as light from darkness and as love from fear. That is what we are doing here. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The heavy chains that bind you are nothing, not real, and not there at all.

To feel burdened and unfree because of a life situation, a job, a relationship, or for any reason at all is to falsely perceive what is not there. It would be impossible for anyone to take away your perfect freedom if you did not first make an agreement that allowed them to do so.

Free will is a choice about whether to be free. This is a choice made by you and by you alone. Others may attempt to manipulate you – putting you in chains for their own perceived gain. But the decision to make the chains real is entirely up to you.

What prevents us from living freely? Only fear. We fear future consequence and we fear letting go of the familiar. Others have certainly conspired to make the fears real, but these thoughts and emotions can never be more real than we agree to make them.

Today, we look in truth and see that there are no chains. We are free, perfect, and complete – just as we have been since the day we were born. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

This is an insane world, and do not underestimate the extent of its insanity. (A Course in Miracles)

“The logic of the world is totally insane and leads to nothing.” -A Course in Miracles

The hardest lesson we will ever learn is also the most simple and obvious: the lesson is that truth is true. Contrary to this, the world teaches that nothing is not nothing. The world offers endless, violent lessons about how to value nothing so that it eventually becomes something.

Whenever we do chase idols of the world, we ultimately end in failure. The world then teaches that it is you who have failed, not that the goal was impossible to begin with.

Our goal is not to make the unreal real; rather, to align ourselves only with that which is real. That which is real does not depend upon popular opinion, nor perception, nor convention and norms. Truth is independent of centralized institutions and their false claims on morality and authority.

Use the world’s egoic, unconscious violence to push you further into consciousness. Let the world reveal what ego is so that you can first know it and then transcend it.

We are creating a new future by looking into our hearts, putting our faith in truth, and then extending it outward in freedom. Let the noises of insanity escalate. Go inside, where it is always perfectly peaceful and joyous – then extend it to your brothers and sisters without holding back. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Failure is impossible.

That which is done with the energy of pure love cannot fail. Love, the energy of God and of creation, is an unstoppable force.

All failure is a decision not to love fully and unconditionally – a decision to quit, to give-up, to retreat into fear.

Success requires only that you align with love, be love, do the good works that love would have you do, and never stop. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
