Behold Peace

It can be said that nature is the healer. It is indeed natural to heal. It is indeed natural to have no need to heal. We can say that you have a self-cleaning physiology. As you live and move in the world, nature does not have to allow occlusions to the smooth flow of health.

One way to look at it is that happiness is health. It is not an absolute that health is a by-product of happiness, yet it is a good way to look at it, for it makes your securing happiness incumbent upon you.

Don't Walk into the Fire

Sometimes after a big disagreement, when the dust settles, you see that the issue wasn't important the way you thought it was. You may even look back and see that it wasn't important at all. It was really all about your ego fuming. You took whatever it was, a remark, an action, personally. You took it as inflammatory.

Think of what taking something personally means. It means you take words or actions as directed to you.

The Difference between Godwriting and Most Other Writing

The difference between Godwriting and most other writing is that in what I say, there is no ego. That is it. Without ego, words go to the heart of the matter which is Truth. Yes, more often than not, I come from a different angle than you do. I always come from the same one angle, beloveds. I do not jump around. Truth is without ego, and that's the whole story.

A God with ego would not be a God. Now let's talk about you.

As ego fades, Truth arises. As your perceived need for ego fades, Truth arises.

The End of Ego

You are all-important to Me. Why then, do you carry a need to be considered important? Importance, as you often desire it, is a placebo from the world. It doesn't really work. It is only a substitute for greatness.

You are meant to be great on your sojourn on Earth. You are here to be great. You are here to commit greatness no matter how small and no matter how unnoticed. You are not here, however, to be recognized as important.

You need not fame nor notoriety. You need not be noticed. You are the one who has to notice.

Guilt No More

Guilt is not honorable. It is a repeated appraisal. It is ego supreme. You punish yourself with guilt, as if punishment would erase error. Erase the concept of guilt. Erase the concept of sin, and guilt will evanesce.

Who are you to lend so much importance to what you see as error? In terms of the whole configuration of the universe, you cannot say with certainty what error is. You see only such a small part of life. Merely the twitch of a horse's tail.

Not Leaf Nor Lotus Flower

Being neutral is nothing more nor less than compassionate wisdom. All wisdom is compassionate, or it would not be wisdom.

Does taking things personally mean ego? I would say so. Part of taking personally is the thought: "How can they talk to me this way? Who do they think they are? Who do they think I am?" Yes, that looks like ego to Me.

Without ego interference, the thought more likely will be: "What's really going on here? And how do we progress from it?"

And always the answer is love, not ballooned love, but love as a willingness to understand and go on from there.

Another's View of the World

You are one who does not welcome resistance when it comes to you. No matter who gives it, you don't like it. And so now it is for you yourself to become resistanceless. When someone says something you don't like, or asks something of you that you feel is inconsiderate, even impertinent, adjourn your resistance, for resistance becomes like a dam that holds what you disfavor. So, then, unless you want to keep what perturbs you, why would you resist it?

Star Light, Star Bright

Why do you do the things you do? What are your actions for? What is it you want to accomplish? What is your motive? What is your intention? Why do you do as you do or not do? Consider this every once in a while so you are conscious of what you are really choosing.

Do you choose to appease your ego? Be alert, for following ego is a losing game. One such as you who is made for greatness must make choices bigger than the ones ego would have you make. Ego's whims are too small and fragmented. Self-serving does not serve even you. Make your choices for something bigger than ego.

Naked Truth

When you talk to Me, really talk to Me, your ego walks away. That is one of the beauties of talking to Me. You are not able to load yourself up with pretense when you appear before Me.

Your subterfuges leave, and there is you, and there is I, and We restate your life. We restate your take on life.

Naked were you born, and naked will you leave. Naked here does not mean unclothed. It means true, honest, real, unpretentious. You, without all the ruffles you have put around yourself, you, in your being.

Whose Ship You Sail

It is good for you to know that you don't have to bend to every circumstance that comes along. But that does not mean for you to be resolute. This is not a question of will. It is a question of coming from strength. Toss out all your ideas of weakness.

You are not a piece of wood that is buffeted up and down by the ocean. You are the ocean. The ocean does not resist what sails on it, but it doesn't flounder either.

The winds that blow are not the maker of you.

I am the Maker of you.
