The All-That-Is and all that has happened and will happen within it is someone’s dream.

It is your dream.

You are the dreamer.

I am the dreamer.

I am you and you are me.

We are the dreamer.

All of us dream the dream together.

Together, we are The One Who Is All.

There need not be fear or sadness surrounding death. It’s the perfectly beautiful shedding of the body and release of the soul.

All Are One

The cells of your body are to you as the waves are to the ocean, as you are to all that is.

Separateness is an illusion.

I had just formally renounced Christianity, citing an inability to believe in a God who would create humans only to sentence the majority of them to an eternity of pain and suffering – among other issues I have with traditional Christian beliefs. I knew in my heart that love was the most important thing in this world, and the only thing worth pursuing. I was reading everything I could find on eastern and pagan religions, and searching for anything else that emphasized respect for the natural world and love. I was trying to fill the void that leaving my religion of 30+ years had left. One by one I tried to fit myself into each of them, but for one reason or another, none of them felt right.

Then one day when I was desperately searching the internet for something else to try, I heard a still, small voice say:

Stop looking everywhere else; everything you need is inside you.

And that’s where I found peace. I instinctively knew this was my answer. I don’t need to be part of an organized religion or belief system. I can simply choose to walk in love and compassion toward all things, and listen to the Source (the Divine, the Great Spirit, my higher self, or whatever else people may call it) for guidance. So I’ve been doing this for the past 6 months or so – watching for synchronicity, reading books that have jumped out at me, trusting my intuition. And I have found a greater peace than I have ever known. My life is full of the joy of Being and I am growing in compassion toward all things. This is my Path.

I am frightened by the power I feel when I am angry. I know that I have the potential to do tremendous harm – emotionally, spiritually, and physically – if I were to harness the power available to me. For this reason, I have made it a priority to learn how to control my anger.

I truly wish to do no harm.

The study of zen practices has helped so much in learning how to control my emotions, and I am currently listening to an audiobook by Deepak Chopra entitled “The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire” which has some wonderful exercises for letting go of anger, along with tools to help understand our inherent power in the universe.

I am learning how to harness all the power in the universe to focus on love, compassion, and healing.  This is my intention. This is what I desire. This is living in love with all things. This is who I will be.

I will be the embodiment of love and compassion.

Your beliefs serve you up until the point at which you cease to believe in them. The power comes not from the belief system itself, but from the energy you put into believing.

All paths are The Path; all ways are The Way.

The power is in your mind. It always has been. You are the creator of your life.

Of all the many things in this Universe,
trees are absolutely my favorite.
They are the bearers of ages of wisdom.
I’m convinced that if one spends enough time listening to trees,
they could know everything.

I am part of one great organism.
I choose to be a healthy cell instead of a cancerous growth,
sharing my energy with all who need it and being replenished
by the healthy cells around me.

Everything you touch, you affect.
Everything that touches you affects you.

I receive power from the earth.
Strong, enduring, full of health.
I breathe in and out, feeling the pulse of life.

I shift my focus to the sky
and am reminded of Spirit.
I am daily renewed
as the sun and moon are renewed.

I give my energy to all things
and receive energy freely from them.
It is a continuous cycle,
repeating always.

As all things are part of me
and I am all things.
I am restored.

I am at peace with all.

This is not just who I am, it’s who I want to be.
