What Do You Really Know?

I trust in the love within me.
I teach, model and inspire the Love within me.
I trust and free myself and others to be the Love We Are.
I am open and willing to allow the Light and Love within to guide my life.

Good Friday
Often this is the time of Greatest Work for Us to do for ourselves! (See Below)

Are you judging?
Are you accusing?
Do you ever know what really is true?
Are you totally responsible for what you think, do and say ?

What you judge, you find in yourself.
When you judge, you are afraid.
Where you accuse, you will be seeking defense.
How you attack, you will fear being attacked.

Yes, we are taught to judge, criticize, accuse and attack others and ourselves.
We learn to discern, discriminate and be selective and picky.
We trust we must find and create what is best for ourselves.
We eventually become responsible for what we create, attract and experience.

Pay attention to what feeds you.
Notice what draws your attention.
Recognize what you talk and think about.
Realize what you worry about and focus on.

Live on path and on purpose to notice any deceit in your life.
Where you are deceiving, pretending or covering up is your vulnerability.
When you feel out of control or a victim of anything or anyone is your weakness.
Life may surprise, upset or frighten you because you are forgetting to honor your whole self.

Everything is a lesson.
Everyone is a teacher.
Each one we encounter is seeking healing.
All things work together for Good.

Forgiveness erases the past.
Love lights our way.
Healing is why we are here.
All things are in our own best interest.

We can choose to trust fear and follow to more fearful experiences.
We can choose  to trust love and forgiveness  and experience more loving experiences.
We can listen with our heart for the fun, safe and easy path or listen with our head for the serious. Fearful and difficult path.
We can choose.

Trusting in the power of forgiveness and Love,

Getting Free
(By Setting Others Free)
It is not unusual for us human beings to secretly wish and hope that the people we’re close to don’t become too magnificent. We don’t really want these significant others to be too free or too powerful or too creative or too successful or to dream too wild a dream. We actually prefer that they stay small, “manageable”, non-threatening, tame. After all, we don’t want to be made to feel uncomfortable or inadequate or diminished or challenged by the boldness and joyfulness with which someone else lives his or her life.
But, until we are willing and actively desire that the key people in our lives be totally free and powerful, we cannot be free and powerful ourselves. So, here is an affirmation-prayer that may help us begin freeing others, so that we can begin to free ourselves.

I, _____(your name)_____ want you, _____(his or her name)_____, to be the highest, clearest, most powerful expression of God that you can be. I would not limit you in any way, knowing that only as I encourage you to expand, explore and grow, can I myself be free. So I fully support you in being and expressing all that you are.
I want you to go where you feel called to go, to speak and act as you feel guided, and to express yourself in whatever ways seem right. There is nothing I do not want you to do, for I know that all movement is contained within God and always leads us to Him.

I am at peace with whatever decisions and choices you make, no matter how they may seem to affect me. Since I know that God loves and supports me perfectly, I know that however you choose to be with me must be a manifestation of that divine love and support. Because I trust God, I trust you. And because I trust you, I trust myself.

So, be free, be powerful, be unlimited. And know that I, _________, want you, _________, to be the highest, clearest, most powerful expression of God that you can be. I fully support you in being all that you are.
