True test of being human is just Being.
Human existence w/needs, concerns & desires while still choosing to be connected to the Divine.
So what do I mean by Being? So consider for a moment that at every moment we choose to BE who we say we are. So here’s an example of what happened today. Life is not working the way that I want it to right now. The economy is slow & business has dropped of significantly. Bill are adding up & employees need to be paid.
I have a choice of who I am going to be in this circumstance. I can be angry and blame the whole thing on a bad economy. Upset that there is nothing I can do about it. This is perfectly fine and many people would agree with me, but at the end of the day I would be angry, upset, a victim of my circumstances and nothing has happened to improve the situation.
I can choose to be peaceful, in action to change my circumstances, and connected to the power of the Divine (God, source, the universe – call it what you will).
The first option gives me an upset stomach, a nervous twitch & anxiety attacks, all the while feeling disempowered. The second option gives me peace, power and the complete feeling that everything will be alright. No upset stomach & my cardiogram still shows normal.
I choose to BE who I say I am. I get to live another day at peace with my circumstances (I didn’t say ignore my responsibilities) but knowing that I am not a victim to them and the money to pay the bills just gets generated.
So who do you choose to BE?
Peace I leave you, My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”.
— John 14:27
This was my mother’s possibility for the world. After she quoted these words last Saturday, I saw her world transform. People came from NY, DC and even Ecuador to be with her. They all shared how they have been touched by her. How her way of being was imprinted in their souls and the magic she caused in their lives
She released her bottle full of angers, recentments and caused our world to transform before our eyes.
Last night my mother passed away in peace as the example of these words. Her last wish was that our family carry on her legacy of being United in Peace.
We are here on this earth if only for this moment – so make your moment matter and be the cause of transformation in your world.
My peace I give to you

Almost surreal – like the pirate ship in Peter Pan. I can just picture Captain Hook standing on the deck and Peter Pan flying in from the right.
“..Now, when you have so much happiness, peace, wisdom, and joy that you spend your life sharing it with everyone else, no matter what your predicament, that’s enlightenment. You have become a master.
When your life is no longer about you, has nothing to do with you, but is about everyone else whose life you touch, you have become a master.
In the end, that is why you came here. You did not come here to somehow ‘get better,’ or to ‘work on your stuff.’ Consider the possibility that all the work you will ever need to do is finished. All you have to do now is know that.
…Enlightenment, when it is all said and done, has nothing to do with what you do with your body or your mind. It has to do with what you do with your soul.
Now that’s a wonderful insight. Just the way you put that opens up the space for clarity. Nice.
Thank you. I want to share that if you simply love everyone whose life you touch endlessly, unconditionally, with nothing needed or wanted in return, you have become enlightened and you have shown everyone how they may be enlightened as well. As fast as any other system that exists, like that.”
– Neale Donald Walsch – Tomorrow’s God
Now that thanksgiving is approaching, reading this statement makes me aware what thanksgiving is about for me. Giving without expecting anything in return – just giving – does wonders in fulfilling our souls. But giving to your loved ones is easy – you love them already. I am taking on giving to others outside of my circle.
I give to you of myself, so that you may be yourself – and by doing so, you allow me to create myself – thank you.
