"There is nothing to hold your negative feelings in place other than your thinking."

Thinking can be a powerful and wonderful tool.

Thinking allowed, thinking aloud:

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

The gate to life is awareness, and the narrow road is our attention span.

We are easily distracted, even by our own good intentions!

Very few people seem to be interested into the workings of their own mind. We tend to be creatures of habit with a strong tendency to bully ourselves and to pretend towards others.

So Jesus told them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

Caesar's world is the realm of our finite person -- what we perceive based on our five senses, and process in our brain; born from below, this is all we know.

Through study, meditation and prayer we develop spiritual discernment. By embracing the teachings of Jesus Christ we sacrifice our old boundaries and understandings.

The plans of the diligent bring plenty, as surely as haste leads to poverty [burnout].

Being busy is the way of the world; and there is a time for everything.

The slavery of Egypt is the squirrel cage of our compulsive thinking; interestingly, we seem too intimidated to deeply consider how and why we suffer.

What we call 'normal' in 'this world' is quite dysfunctional from a more spiritual perspective.

in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

Our natural state is a joyful empty mind, sensitive towards God/Life/Love's presence.

I invite you to risk a little openness and curiosity: to safely explore the universal nature of our mind; to playfully discover where we can regain precious mental energies in our day-to-day operations.

Christ can do more in 2 minutes than our person in 24 hours!

Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not panic or be terrified by them.

Following Jesus, we don't run away but face our own circumstances!

We pray for our enemies, we forgive never-endingly, we love our neighbor as ourselves; yet something in us resists and fights for its old familiarity.

Radical openness, refreshing humility and our devotion to the truth are our most powerful and gentle allies in fighting the good fight in our own household, in our own mind.

Not for any selfish purpose, but to naturally glorify God on Earth.

I invite you to consider that I can help you in ways you don't know yet.

If you feel resentment I encourage you not to hide, but to please prove me wrong.

Greetings from 11th Street in Pacific Grove, California.
