Episode Date
I Am Risen
551

An emotion only lasts 90 seconds,
and if you can wake up during those 90 seconds and remember,
'I'm not upset...
I'm aware of this upset,
I'm aware of this emotion,
I'm aware of this wave,
conscious breathing is my anchor',
then that'll be the beginning. 
A new way to live in the world.
Rumi said, 'absorbed in this world you've made it your burden.
Rise above this world, there's another vision."
Every time you breathe and feel your way through an emotion, you have risen.
Feel the sun/Son in your Heart and know, "I Am risen."
The I Am is the healing and it's flowing through and from You.   
Thank You.
Thank God, for Love.   

I Love you,
Nik

Find God - The Highest Meditation #GMweekends
749

Here's Your One-Second Mood Reset--

Close your eyes.
Find God.
Open your eyes.
See God.

Know that that feeling is now appearing as the world.

God is always in front of you.
Waving at you.
Walking by you.
Talking to you.

God is always right where you are, appearing as you and as everything on display.

It's never hidden.

This is the highest meditation.
To Look and Love.

To Look

and

Love.

To Look,
and not let the appearance of the world make you forget to feel Love.   
 
I Love you,
nikki@curlynikki.com

Today's Quotes-  

"...and the greatest gift God can give is His own experience. 
Every object, every creature, every man, woman and child, 
has a soul and it is the destiny of all, 
to see as God sees, to know as God knows, 
to feel as God feels, to Be as God is."
-Meister Eckhart  

"The Life Force that perpetuates your heartbeat and maintains and sustains all the other organs and functions of your body is not physical, but it is spiritual... is not temporal, but is eternal.  And once that basic truth has been established in your consciousness, you will experience the dissolution of all fear, the healing of all diseases, and the resolution of all conflicts.  This is the supernal activity of the Word being made flesh... this is the sacred process of Divine Grace being established on earth as it is in Heaven."
-Don Mardak 

"The highest meditation is to think of nothing. If you can remain without thought, great power will come."
-Swami Vivekananda

- @SaraLandon via IG

"Choose pure love for yourself again and again. Choose pure love for others again and again. Choose to see the pure love that is the truth of every moment again and again.

'Whatever you ask in My Name, will be given to you.'
351

Whatever you ask in Love's Name
(while feeling Love,
feeling Love while the words come from that Love,
addressing that Love,
like you're speaking directly to that inner experience of felt-Love),
will be given to you.

Read that again.
That's how I pray. 
Sometimes I ask that Love for what I want.
But mostly I just listen to It...
And It gives me what It wants.
This Silence that is everything. 

This alert-listening to the felt-Love is the most powerful prayer.
It moves mountains.
It helps you to see they were never truly (t)here.
Only Love is.

I Love you,
Nik

"I pray that the Lord would meet you in your sadness today. In all of your disappointments, in all that you don't have understanding in, in every area that you desperately long for healing in.  May He meet you there and remind you that you don't have to seek for Peace and Comfort elsewhere. That you can have endless Peace and  Comfort in His Presence. "

"The way up is by bowing down. If you wish to reach Krishna then become truly humble. Though please remember: don't think less of yourself, but think of yourself less."

Today's Quotes:   

"Your path is more difficult because your calling is higher. Make it happen. Shock everyone."
- @Raghunathyogi via IG

"Stop thinking in terms of a God who will do something for a person. There is no such thing. There is no such thing as a God who will heal me or you or your patient or your student. That is going back to paganism. God is the impersonal life of all being, but God is spirit, and so your entire consciousness must be on the nature of the kingdom of God: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, the nature of spiritual grace, the nature of the gift of God. Then when you are absent from the body, when you are absent from taking any thought about the externalized forms, “the bridegroom cometh.” The eternal mistake is trying to connect a spiritual God with a material universe when “My kingdom is not of this world.” Do not try to make a spiritual God maintain a human body or a human home or a human purse or a human business, and in the moment ye “think not” about persons, things or conditions, and continue to abide with me—continue to abide in the Word—spiritual harmony comes and it brings the out picturing of harmonious human conditions."
-Goldsmith, Joel S.. Consciousness Transformed (pp. 457-458) Kindle 
    
"Imagine a thread pulling you toward the ceiling."
-Sacinanand Swami , The Living Name 

"I know you and I have a relationship, I may not always feel it but please  don't take this personally, It's just my mind. I can't help that I am weak. Only You can help me..."

Affirm: "I will forgive, and this will disappear." #GMfavorites
700

Keep remembering,

"I will forgive, and this will disappear." 

I will feel Love, and this will disappear.

I will know 'only Love is here', and this will disappear.

I will know 'only God is here', and this will disappear.

I will forgive my misperception of God's presence, and this will disappear.

Keep forgiving yourself for judging by appearances.  Keep forgiving yourself for believing in this world.  You forgive the instant you remember God... the moment you pause and feel for the Silent-Love. Forgiveness is allowing the Love you are to flow into the scene... into the world appearance.  Feeling Love while moving through the world disappears problems. Love is the solution you've been looking for.  It is the miracle.  And It is you.  Which means It's here, now.  Smile :) 

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quotes:

"These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its form.  These are the words with which temptation ends, and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more. These are the words which end the dream of sin, and rid the mind of fear.   These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world.

Shall we not learn to say these words when we are tempted to believe that pain is real, and death becomes our choice instead of life?  Shall we not learn to say these words when we have understood their power to release all minds from bondage?  These are words which give you power over all events that seem to have been given power over you. ⁴You see them rightly when you hold these words in full awareness, and do not forget these words apply to everything you see or any brother looks upon amiss." - A Course in Miracles Lesson 193

"All the negatives of your life are like riding down the road spiked with nails.  Every day is another road, and the way you ride down that road is to realize one divine life without opposite.  I am looking at a road that is not there." - Herb Fitch

"You see the world
And you try to dissolve it.
But the master has no need to
He is without desire.
For though he sees,
He sees nothing."
-The Ashtavakra Gita, Heart of Awareness

"Every appearance that comes to us from morning to night, or from night to morning, regarding the human scene needs treatment... Do not be satisfied to accept even a good human appearance, but translate that, too, into the spiritually real of which the good is but the form." - Joel Goldsmith

Today's Quotes:   
"The next time you feel intimidated by the prospect of making a choice and you don’t feel anything in your heart one way or the other, just keep quiet, but without waiting for something to appear. You are going to have to bear some discomfort for a bit because something inside will not want to experience that feeling of not knowing. Something wants to go, but just sit with that uneasiness. Remain as awareness itself. Then, at some point, everything will calm down. A kind of recognition rather than a decision may enter your heart. The way forward may clearly manifest, and you simply move in a certain direction."
-Mooji, "Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space: What You Are Before You Became"

"Ask 'Am I aware?' And then stay there."*

DAILY Online Group Meditation - The Power of Silence
237

To support your regular practice of Silence, I'm offering a new option for daily morning meditation. It's free, and all you need is the Spotify Live app, and to follow me (@CurlyNikki) there.

I'll be online for at least an hour beginning at 6:30am ET each morning. You can use this time  to meditate (on the Silence), to journal (while noticing the Silence),  to set your intentions for the day  (including to not forget the Silence), or just to know that you're not alone.  'I Am' with you. The I Am, the Silence, is in the midst of you... and It's greater than you... going before you to prepare mansions and smooth your way. 

Also, you can ask questions in the chat box so other GoOD Friends and myself can answer them. But mostly, we'll just hold each other and the world in Silence. Thank you Felicia, Sylvia, and Amie for sitting with me, today!

Come sit with us tomorrow. Take time to sit with God- the Truth appearing as the Silence, and change your life. 

I Love you,
Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com

Remember: You have to see through everything, to receive the best of everything.
380

Ravi Shankar said the best form of prayer is, 'being silent and knowing that the Divinity is taking care of everything'. 
But first It reveals to you that there is no 'everything'. 
That there is nothing here but It.
Nothing here but God.
Nothing here but Love.
Unlocated, undivided, formless. 
And once you're able to see past the form, to see through everything, you're given the best of everything.
You have to see through it all to receive the best of it all.

-Yogananda

Today's Quotes:

"Books and learning, yoga and meditation and illumination-- all are but dust compared with Love." 
- Vivekananda 

"Friend, if you've never really met the Secret One, 
what is the source of your self-confidence?
Stop all this flirtation using words. 
Love does not happen with words. 
Don't lie to yourself about the holy 
books and what they say. 
The love I talk of is not in the 
books. 
Who has wanted it has it. " 
- Kabir

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." 
- Albert Einstein

"As Namdev, the great 13th-century poet-saint, wrote, he had perfect knowledge of the Vedas (ancient Indian scriptures) and all of the schools of Indian philosophy; he had accomplished the goal of the yogis; he had himself experienced the joy of merging in the formless God; but he’d transcended all of these experiences through the grace of the saints, to find that “the secret is the Lord’s Love.” 
- Krishna Das, Chants of a Lifetime 

"The effort through mental means to become spiritual is wasted effort. The attempt to understand spiritual things with the five senses or the intellect is useless. Developing a sense of receptivity; learning to silence the senses and gaining the ability to listen for “the still, small voice” – this is the Way. Human thoughts – even good ones – will not help."
-Joel Goldsmith, Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture 

Today's Practice:
Fulfilled prayer happens when you are FILLED FULLY... fully feeling God's Love where you are.  Don't pray for happiness or peace.  Don't pray for dream solutions and dream stuff.  Drop everything and you'll find only Love.  Drop even good thoughts and words and you'll find only God.  And then God will fulfill Itself. 

I Love you,

Do Not Fear, I Am With You.
305

Love is whispering in your ear,
not with words,
but with a soothing Feeling,
"Don't be afraid, have courage.
Feel My Love and keep going.
I Am guiding you.
I Am  showing you how to trust.
I Am teaching you how to breathe.

B R E A T H E.

...how to be aware that you're breathing.
When you're aware of your breathing, you're aware of Me.
When you're aware of your breathing, you're aware of Me being 'you'.
You're aware of My Grace.
Every time you feel afraid today, come back to Me.
Come back to your Self, back to your breath, and stop leaving.
That's when things get good.

I Love you,

You're no longer repeating the same old patterns. The more you open your heart and mind, the more you tell the Universe: "I'm ready for new and elevated fulfillment." The flow that is required for these changes to take place has been set. Which is why you're beginning to experience major shifts. This is your revolution of a lifetime.

When You're Anxious or Worried, Be Patient.
453

The moment you remember what you are,
the moment you shift your identity from being the person that's worrying,
to being the Love that the worried person is happening in,
the Love that they came from,
you've initiated the change.
You've initiated the healing.
That's the key that opens the door.
That's the Love that guides your steps through that door and into the room with Christ,
where there is no darkness,
where there is no 'you',
only the pure Light of God.
The sound of Love.
RamRamRam.

"When you're anxious or worried, be patient. The key of patience opens the door of happiness. "

"Just drop everything and become aware of this inner presence. This inner presence is all that you have to work with, and it is all that matters."
-Herb Fitch

"The moment your mind starts worrying, know that at that moment, your mind has wandered away from Him. Bring it back to Him and watch your worries melt away."
-Geetima via IG

"Your suffering serves no other purpose than as an impetus for your awakening. It is meant to reveal your ignorance, so that you can transcend it."
-Zen Thinking

"Go direct to the Christ. Christ I Am, here, there, and everywhere... Christ fills this room, Christ fills this entire threatened area. Then wait, wait to feel the One Christ Presence.  Because Christ is everywhere and only Christ fills all space and time, the drought or flood is not there. Christ is there. When Christ within is real to you, Christ will manifest out there as peace, serenity, the end of the problem."
-Herb Fitch, Maui Talks  

"Perfect calmness is when you do not change. No matter what you see, no matter what is going on around you, you stay relaxed: peaceful. You may say this is impossible to do; on the contrary, it’s not. You can make yourself this way for this is your true state to begin with. Perfect calmness, perfect happiness, perfect peace."

Today's Quotes: 

*"Divine Mother, when I am stressed remind me: only one thing is needed."
-Yogananda       

"Divine life can be summed up in two words: Detach- Attach. Detach from the world, attach to the Lord. "
-Swami Sivananda 

"The Silent Voice of reason."
-@ThePresenceofAwareness via IG

"I cannot imagine how religious people can live satisfied without the practice of the presence of God. For my part, I keep myself retired with Him in the fund or center of my soul as much as I can, and while I am so with Him, I fear nothing, but the least turning from Him is insupportable."
-Brother Lawrence

"Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Though man's ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful.
-Lahiri Mahasaya 

"I have found a way to live in the presence of the Lord
And It's all in the Name. 
Hare Ram Ram Ram
Sita Ram Ram Ram." 
-Krishna Das, from the song- 'God is Real' 

"Something deeper and greater than yourself will flow out into visible expression. It, then will do what we interpret as healing work, although actually what appears as healing work will be the dissolution of material sense. When there is no material sense there is no personal sense of "I" to sin, to be sick, or to be poor... when there is no longer any personal "I ", what is left? GOD! God, the Father, appearing as God, the Son, in all of God's glory."

Negative Thoughts: How to Stop Them #GMweekends
464

A meditation to help you IMMEDIATELY surrender negative thoughts. It's useful not just during 'formal' meditation, but in every moment you find yourself fearful or worried.   You shift from being aware of being 'you', to being aware AS the Christ Light that you truly are.  You shift out of your mind, and into the mind that was in Christ.  Into the no-mind of the Buddha.  How does that mind sound?  Is it thinking about your troubles, your past, your future? Or is It silent... steady?  How does It feel?   

Stay (t)here.

-Nisargadatta Maharaj 

"Having realized that I am with, and yet beyond the world, I became free from all desire and fear. I did not reason out that I should be free, I found myself free, unexpectedly, without the least effort.  Spontaneity became a way of life, the real became natural and the natural became real. And above all, infinite affection, love, dark and quiet, radiating in all directions, embracing all, making all interesting and beautiful, significant and auspicious."

"I am merely a guest born in this world, to know the secrets that lie beyond it."

"In every moment you only have one real choice: to be aware of the Self or to identify with the body and the mind."
-Annamalai Swami

"Remembering what you are, when what you are not is present."
-Amrit ji  

"You can either hold your focus on the movie, or you can hold it on reality, which is you."
-Peter Stoughton

"Don't focus on the visible, don't believe the visible, don't look for Perfection in the visible.
Focus your attention within, in Silence and wait, for the revelation to tell you what is really Here.  First become aware of Divine Perfection in the invisible and you will soon see it manifested."
-Octavia Williams 

“The world is new to every soul when Love has entered in. When you let that energy rise up, when you let the Christ in.  There is now a presence, invisible of course, but nevertheless real that goes before you not only to make the crooked places straight but to prepare mansions for you. There is a presence within you that is a protective influence, a guiding influence, a maintaining and a sustaining influence - it is as if you had a silent partner. Not only a silent partner, an invisible partner. The world may look at you and say ‘how have you done this’ or ‘how have you accomplished this’, or ‘what is it that brings you this Peace within and without?’ And to the world you can’t answer - inwardly you smile in the realization ‘yes it’s true— out there you can’t see it but I have a silent and invisible partner. It is a presence.’ The natural man imbued with this presence is a new individual.”

I Am Nothing But God
377

"The day my mother died, I wrote in my journal, "A serious misfortune of my life has arrived." I suffered for more than one year after the passing away of my mother. But one night, in the highlands of Vietnam, I was sleeping in the hut in my hermitage. I dreamed of my mother. I saw myself sitting with her, and we were having a wonderful talk. She looked young and beautiful, her hair flowing down. It was so pleasant to sit there and talk to her as if she had never died. When I woke up, it was about two in the morning, and I felt very strongly that I had never lost my mother. The impression that my mother was still with me was very clear. I understood then that the idea of having lost my mother was just an idea. It was obvious in that moment that my mother is always alive in me.

I opened the door and went outside. The entire hillside was bathed in moonlight. It was a hill covered with tea plants, and my hut was set behind the temple halfway up. Walking slowly in the moonlight through the rows of tea plants, I noticed my mother was still with me. She was the moonlight caressing me as she had done so often, very tender, very sweet... wonderful! Each time my feet touched the earth I knew my mother was there with me. I knew this body was not mine but a living continuation of my mother and my father and my grandparents and great-grandparents. Of all my ancestors. Those feet that I saw as "my" feet were actually "our" feet. Together my mother and I were leaving footprints in the damp soil.

From that moment on, the idea that I had lost my mother no longer existed. All I had to do was look at the palm of my hand, feel the breeze on my face or the earth under my feet to remember that my mother is always with me, available at any time."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Who is with you right now? Who did you forget is looking out through your eyes with you?  Experiencing your life with you?  When you feel them, you're also feeling your Self, and you're also feeling Go(o)d. There's only One and It can't go anywhere.

What if you stopped placing your faith in words, the bad ones and the good ones, and started placing your faith in God's Word? His silent Promise. The promise that 'if the light is in your Heart you will find your way Home.'  Knowing that on the way Home, you'll find your solutions, your love, your success, you'll find your happiness, your joy your health. But the greatness of these pale in comparison to the brilliance, the comforts of Home.

Today's Quotes:

"Does the sun know night?
Does it even know day?
You can worship the sun,
you can dry your clothes in the sun,
but this is not the sun's job. 
It only shines. 
The Self is like this."
-Mooji 

"It will do us no good to sit back and plead, “O God, when are you going to act in my life?” Let us rather realize, “God is good. God’s part is done. Thank you, God, that this principle is and has been available throughout all time. Now show me what I must do in order to avail myself of this principle, this love, this life, this immortal body.” When we have reached that state of readiness, we have begun traveling the road which leads to spiritual consciousness."
-Goldsmith, Joel S.. Practicing the Presence (pp. 20-21). Acropolis Books, Inc.

"The letter of truth is made up of statements, quotations, and words, none of which, alone, is power. The only power is God Itself. It is very much as if the shades on the windows were drawn, and we sat all afternoon talking about sunlight: what it is, what it will do, and how to avail ourselves of it. Then, after several hours, someone very skeptically remarked, “But, it’s still dark here. After all this talking about light, it is still dark.” Yes, it is still dark, and dark it will remain until we roll up the shades. So it is that we can talk about truth; we can read truth; we can study truth; we can hear about truth and never once feel the light, never once feel the presence and power of God, unless and until we take the final step of opening consciousness to the very presence of God. When truth comes to our conscious awareness from within our own being, we have gone from the letter to the Spirit. That is the most important phase of the activity of truth in consciousness."

Today's Quotes:

"Keep the Lord's name as constant as breathing."
-Sai Baba 

"If you give yourself one complete minute of focused presence, to simply stop; even to listen to your heart beating, it will take you out of your head and introduce you to the moment which is complete in itself. It is not on the way to another moment. It is not a bridge to another opportunity. It is the timeless perfection. So stop and sink into this timeless moment."
-Mooji

"I have also given you the password, Love. When you come to barriers across your way, use the word freely and forcefully and nothing shall hinder your progress. You will be shown flowers of attainment which will bloom for you as you do well the tasks of the day, as you live largely and freely as a child of the Father who holds all good in His hands for you."

Vision of Love #GMweekend
391

Everything you see is sacred.
Everything you taste is sacred.
Everything you smell is sacred.
Everything you hear and touch,
sacred.
Hafiz said, 'everything you do is sacred."
In this Silence we practice, you are sacred.
And in this sacredness there's nothing but Grace.
Receive It by staying open to It, by feeling It...
by giving It.
The more you give, the more you have.

I Love you,

It's Time to Return Home to Your Self, and Never Leave.
312

Dick Gregory said, "When we are born, we have one thing to do.  All raindrops have one job... to work its way back Home to the river, to the stream, to the ocean. When you come here, the only thing you have to do is work your way back Home."

But wait-- while that raindrop was making its way back home, it was already, always water! It was water while it was appearing as the cloud, it was water as it fell to the ground, it was water as it mixed with mud, it was water as it merged with The Water, The Ocean.  It was water all along the journey.  It didn't need to meditate to become water. It didn't have to pray, practice, or fast to become water.  It just had to realize 'I Am Water'... and feel the presence of it Self.  Remembering that you're God while appearing to be human, will make the journey back Home a blessed one.

I Love you,
Nik

Living FROM Your Worth, Not For It.
327

"How scary it is to admit to yourself that you want to live a different kind of life."*
But you're doing just that.
Living from your Worth,
from the feeling of your Peace,
from your Freedom,
from God's Love.
You ARE God's Love, and your life is blooming as you feel It, consciously. 

TRUST DEEPER.

The Prayer I Pray Every Morning - It'll Change Your Life.
351

Herb Fitch said, 'the mind that is stayed on God is the Power, and the mind that is not stayed, is strayed. So you're either one or the other, stayed or strayed.

Which are you? If you're 'stayed', you can hear the Silence in the noisiest of rooms. You can feel Love even though fear seems to be present. That's my prayer--
"Let me remember to listen for You all day, to feel You all day. Please give me the strength to stay my mind on You, no matter what comes."

That's our only intention,
to know the Silence,
to stay as the Silence,
to live as the Silence.

Miracles are born of Silence.

________________________________

Today's Quotes:

"Begin by reversing your own beliefs about yourself. Reverse the belief that you exist as an effect of something, as an image, a reflection, or an idea. You exist as the very presence of God, the allness of God, individually manifest here for the glory of God. Begin now! Instead of looking for some law that is miraculously going to make you healthy, wealthy, and wise, be that law. Forget about mortal mind, and see that everything that comes within range of your vision is appearance. Right where the false appearance is, right there, is reality, the universe of God, perfect, entire, complete, and only awaiting your recognition: “I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”  All that is real of me is the Christ. Anything else—that which is visible to sense—is but my limited view of the Christ which I am."
Goldsmith, Joel. The World is New (pp. 42-43). Acropolis Books. Kindle Edition. 

"I  carry the atmosphere of my being with me, and it blesses not only me, but all who come within range of my consciousness. They must be blessed even if they touch my coat, because I am permeated with the atmosphere of God. God is my mind, my Soul, and the substance of my body, the law of my body. There is nothing to me but God, and if anyone sees me as less, he is seeing what his own vision has created. Here where I am, there is only God; and that is all I see in anyone."
Goldsmith, Joel. The World is New (p. 40). Acropolis Books. Kindle Edition. 

"The emotion that overpowers you for a minute and passes away the next instant, that cannot be called Love.  That is Love which ever remains kindled and enlivened in this body all the twenty-four hours.  Everyone takes the Name of Love but none truly recognizes its essence.  That which endures all the twenty-four hours, that is Love."
-Kabir

The More you Practice THIS, The More Your Life Changes
615

In the Adi Lila, Krishna said, "cleanse and decorate your body because you consider it Mine."
Not yours. 
I consider that 'Love is here, and only Love is here',
and where Nikki seems to be here, that's the illusion.
And it's only an illusion because one day, Nikki won't be here.
But 'I'  still will be,
because 'I' can't go anywhere.
'I' didn't come here, so 'I' can't leave here.
'I Am' what is known as 'Here'.
Hereness is Me.

That's what you have to consider.
That's what you have to practice.
Everything has to remind you of That.
Everything has to be your mirror.
Everything has to be God.
There's no room for anything else.
No room for imperfections.
Today you're going to look out and see imperfections.
Your thoughts are going to inform you of many. 
And your work is to stay woke enough to hear every report of an imperfection,
to see every seeming imperfection,
and to hear Go(o)d where it appears to be.
To feel Go(o)d where it appears to be.

It's that simple.
You see the imperfection and you know God.
You feel THIS (Love) that you're feeling right now, while you're looking at it,
and then what you're looking at changes.
Even if you can't detect it in that moment,
it has changed.
Your gaze is healing this world.
Because your gaze is silent.
Because your gaze is steady.
Because your gaze is God's. 

I Love you,
Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com

Today's Quotes:

"A person trying to play me plays themself."
-Prince

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
-Henry David Thoreau 

"Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it."
-Rumi

"But listen to me. For one moment quit being sad. Hear blessings dropping their blossoms all around you."
-Rumi

"It’s you who must come to the place where the human brain is not in the way. And behold, when you come to that secret place, the light and the power which always are present, even now, sweep aside the veil of your human sense, and then they reveal to you the perfection of Heaven where the imperfection of human thought had seemed to be."

Spend All of Your Time With God, and God Will Take Care of You
544

You spend time with God by listening.
Think of that image of Dolores from Disney's 'Encanto', with her hand up to her ear. That.
Just listening. 
This listening is continuous,
that's mediation.
When you're listening you're not thinking,
that's meditation.
And then in the quiet listening,
Love is felt.
You hear God's silence, and then you feel God's Love.
You're gifted His Peace, 
and then you notice that that too, is continuous!
No matter what comes (or goes), this Peace stands.
All you have to do is remember to listen for the feeling of Peace,
and then that Peace dissolves everything that isn't Peace...
help comes,
because God is.

I Love you,
Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com


Today's Quotes: 

"...continuous reaching toward the center of our being, will eventually result in the experience of the Christ. In that moment, we discover the mystery of spiritual living: We do not have to take thought for what we shall eat, what we shall drink, or wherewithal we shall be clothed; we do not have to plan; we do not have to struggle. only Christ can live our life for us, and we meet the Christ within ourselves in meditation. The degree to which we attain the experience or activity of the Christ, the presence of the Spirit of God in us, determines the degree of individual unfoldment."
-by Joel S. Goldsmith via Practicing the Presence, Chapter 7 

"I am the spaces between my thoughts."
-via @daytohaveaday via IG

“If a man wants to be used by God, he cannot spend all of his time with people.”

Whenever you're not glowing today, catch your Self, and Glow #GMFavorites
463

Right now, as you read these words, simply shift from not-glowing to Glowing. 
It may feel like someone turned on the Light, inside.
Like you're more alert, more present, more confident... activated. 

You owe it to your Self to be consistent in This.
You owe it to your Self to be disciplined about This.
You owe It to your Self to stay focused on This. *

This Glow is how the body feels when you're being your Self. 
It's the 'light of Your Grace'.
It's the only purpose.

Whenever you're not glowing today, catch your Self, and Glow.

You are Bigger Than Your Problems #GMFavorites
614

You are bigger than the fear.
You are bigger than the anxiety.
You are the Love that the problems,  the fear, and the anxiety seem to come and go in.
You are being the Love, consciously now, appearing as Joy, solutions, and miracles, Now.

With you in and AS Love,
Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com

Today's Quotes:

"There is no order of difficulty in miracles.

To God, every moment is a new beginning. And God is held back by nothing. God would never say, "I could help you, but you messed up badly so I can’t.”

Neither does He say, “I could give you a great life, but your parents were dysfunctional so my hands are tied." Limits do not stand before the limitlessness of God; it is only limits to our faith, not inherent limits in our circumstances, that would keep us from experiencing miracles.

Every situation provides us the chance to live with broader, more audacious faith that all things are possible. God is bigger than any limited circumstance in our past; God is bigger than any limits that the world is showing us now. Limitations exist only as a challenge to us to mature spiritually, to realize that through the grace of God we are bigger than our problems.

There is no order of difficulty in miracles. When we pray to God to dissolve the messes that we have created, His spirit enters our minds. It then turns us into the people we need to be in order to make all things right."
-Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

"You're here to do wonders but you must  be patient with yourself. Patience is an attitude of mind characterized by poise, inner calmness, and quiet endurance in the face of trying conditions. It is perfected only in those who have an unwavering knowing in the inner God (Good)."

When I Remember God, God Takes Care of Everything #GMFavorites
436

Repeat, feelingly: 
"I know all the power I need to live a successful life is within me.
I relax my entire body.
I cast all burdens on the Christ. (aka Love, Source, God, etc)
I go free.
I claim and feel the Peace of God flooding my mind, heart, and whole being.
I know the quiet mind gets its problems solved.
I am at Peace."
-Unknown author

The Hollow Bamboo Game  by Ram Dass

A quiet mind is all you need.  All else will happen rightly once your mind is quiet."
-Nisargardatta Maharaj  
      
"When I remember God, He takes care of everything." 
-Maharajji aka Neem Kaorli Baba 

Today's Practice:
1. Become like a hollow bamboo... an empty reed... a flute... 
2. Become aware of the emptiness, the space and silence within you-- hollow bamboos don't think. 
3. Notice the fullness of Love in the emptiness. 
4. Know this Love as God. As your true Self.  As the solution to every problem.  

I Love you and I'm with you,

All Power is Within You #GMFavorites
457

"Since the Kingdom of God is within me, all power is within me." - Joel Goldsmith (Invisible Supply)

Bonus Quote:

"Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time.  In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God. Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, “protective” clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the “right” people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers.

All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. They are songs of praise to the ego. Do not put your faith in the worthless. It will not sustain you.

Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances. 
- ACIM Lesson 50

Today's Practice:

Every time you notice worry thoughts today, let go of them by immediately remembering the mantra, "all power is within me", allowing the words to guide you back to the Peace, the Love, Power, Itself. Use this mantra to help you FEEL through to the Truth of every moment.  Only Love is here.  There can't be a problem AND Love.  There are no problems in the Kingdom.  There's only God, only Love, only the One.  Relax your shoulders as you're reading these words and know that you are the Kingdom.  You are safe. All is well.  

Bonus Practice:

Take out a cute notebook and pen and write down everything in your life that is not power.    Keep adding to that list until you can see and know and FEEL that Love is the only Power and that all seeming other powers dissolve in the presence of this Love.  Love is truly all we need. Let's stay plugged in, today.

THE 24-HOUR KINGDOM CHALLENGE! #GMFavorites
306

“What if the doctor told you that you have 24 hours to live and the one thing that could save you, is that for the next 24 hours you have to get into the Kingdom and stay there? If you were told you cannot move into doubt, depression, worry, or fear for more than 5 minutes… it would be a challenge to you, but you would surely give it your best effort.

If getting into Joy was a life or death situation, you would find you could do it.  You would shift immediately into Gratitude.” – Lisa Natoli 

“Know this: When you say, ‘I’, the true meaning of ‘I’ is Joy, It is Happiness, It is Life—and It’s also the witnessing of Life.” - Mooji

You Have No Idea How Good Things Actually Are Right Now #GMFavorites
488

“Do not despair in any situation. Have faith NOT in the capacity of friends and family to help you out, but in the capacity of God. God will show you the right path.” 
– Pandit Shriram Sharma 

"You have no idea how good things actually are right now.  You just haven’t reached that moment in time that the gift is revealed.  

In full faith believe that your beautiful destiny is unfolding on this beam of God Light you can feel.  It’s coming into view in proportion that you can stay aware of It.  It’s rearranging your life, dropping the ish, and replacing it with sugar, effortlessly. " 
-Note from my phone, Sept 2018

“Much prayer—much power.  Little prayer—little power.  No prayer-- …” – Toure Roberts

Today’s Practice:

Every time you're in the midst of needing someone to respond to you or do something for you, remember in that moment that you don't need anything but God.  That remembrance is the true miracle that shows up as the seeming material one. Rest. Abide. Trust in this Love.

Breathing Life Into Your New Life #GMFavorites
350

"To be conscious of the breath means that no thoughts can be allowed, because thoughts will distract your attention. Buddha never says, "Stop thinking." He says, "Breathe consciously." Automatically, thinking will stop; you cannot both think and breathe consciously. When a thought comes into your mind, your attention is withdrawn from the breathing. A single thought and you have become unconscious of the breathing process.

Buddha used this technique. It is a simple one, but a very vital one. He would say to his bhikkhus, his monks, "Do whatsoever you are doing, but do not forget a simple thing: remember the incoming and the outgoing breath. Move with it, flow with it."

The more you try to do it, the more you endeavor to do it, the more conscious you will become. It is arduous, it is difficult, but once you can do it, you will have become a different person, a different being in a different world." - Osho 

Today's Practice:

Allow everything that happens today to happen in the flow of your breath.  Stay conscious of your breathing today.  Don't forget to feel for it.  Make it primary, and everything else secondary.  It's your anchor.  It's always here.  Always now.  Just as God Is.  Just as Love is.  Just as you are.  You are breathing life into your new life. Trust this. 
Smile. 
Give thanks. 

I Love you,

Chant the Name, Change your life. #GMFavorites
505

Do a new thing, today.
Chant the Name.
Change your life.

I Love you and I'm with you,
 Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com

Today's Quotes:

"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
-Isaiah 43:18-19

"It takes very, very, VERY, good karma for a person even to want to know God."
-Yogananda

"Any work you do while keeping constant remembrance of god is of the same value as meditation. To constantly remember God is not your habit.  To cultivate it, japa (repeating a mantra or name of  God) is the prescription."
-Amma

"When I am with you, everything is prayer."
Rumi

It's like the subatomic texture of the universe, the dark matter that connects everything. When you tune in to that flow, you will feel it in your own heart—not your physical heart or your emotional heart, but your spiritual heart, the place you point to in your chest when you say, ‘I am’.”
-Ram Dass

The Kingdom Isn't Far Away #GMFavorites
526

"The Kingdom of God is spread upon the earth, and men do not see it.'* The Kingdom isn't far away.  The Kingdom is right here and right now. The challenge of Jesus' message is that it constantly asks of us: Can you see it? Can you see the Kingdom right now? Right in the midst of this very moment in the midst of this very life that often seems mundane and ordinary-- can you see eternity? Have you allowed yourself and your world to be rendered transparent to the underlying divinity that shines through it?   - from Adyashanti's, 'Resurrecting Jesus' 
*The Gospel of St. Thomas 113

"By and by your consciousness will become more and more centered in the eyes. You will just be aware; there will be no thinking.  Eyes cannot think. When the whole consciousness is centered in the eyes, the mind has no energy left for thinking.  There is no mind-- only the eyes exist-- so there is no thinking." - Osho

Today's Practice:
Take a few moments to notice that when you're not blinking, you're not thinking.  And notice what you FEEL in that pause.  Love.  Become a transparency for that Love to shine through, for the Kingdom to reach out and through and touch others.  Text someone a message of gratitude, today.  Be Love, today, and remember that the Kingdom is not only where you reside, It's what you are.

Practice: Cool Head, Warm Heart #GMFavorites
467

When the heart is warm with Love, the head is automatically cool.   
Your response is chill.
Your thoughts are chill.
Sometimes, it's like they're saying- 
"Thank you for giving me this Love as a reminder of Your presence.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity, this moment, to remember you."

And you can take as many of these moments as  you need during the day. 
Every time you close your eyes and go within,
that's the Sabbath.
That's true rest.
That's the absence of desire (aka the feeling of lack),
and the presence of all things Go(o)d.

I Love you,
Nik

Staying Connected to Your Soul #GMFavorites
387

As you read these words, shift from that weak signal to having ALL your bars. A strong connection feels like Love, radiating. It feels like a straighter spine. A smiling face. Belly breaths. It feels like... Home. Welcome back :) 

READ THAT JOEL GOLDSMITH QUOTE! xx

I Love you,
Nik
nikki@curlynikki.com

Today's Quotes:

"Hope, expectancy, and what the world calls faith—this all has to do with a future tense. God has no way of operating except now, a continuing now. “Now is the appointed time,” and this takes away from us the false sense of faith that God will meet our rent on the first of the month. 

It helps us to realize that God does not operate in the future, because that takes away from us the false sense of expectancy and the false sense of faith it gives us. “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” so omnipresent I is a continuing experience, but not one that begins tomorrow. If faith has anything to do with anything beyond this moment it is not faith at all. You may say that you will not have fruit on your fruit trees until next month; but I say to you—if the law is not operating in your trees now, there never will be fruit. It is only the operation of the nowness that brings fruit in its season. It is what is happening in the tree now that determines the fruit to be on the tree. So it is, that which is taking place in our consciousness now determines the fruitage in our bodies, in our pocketbook, in our family, in our life—next week, next month, next year. "
- Joel Goldsmith 'Consciousness Transformed' (pp. 114-116). Acropolis Books, Inc..

"This life is about finding a way to be in the world that connects you to your Soul."
-Ram Dass 

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, love, but the greatest of these is Love."
-1 Corinthians 13:13

"The present moment is the only moment available to us and it is the door to all moments."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

This Love and God Are Not Different #GMFavorites

“This love and life are not different. 
This love and God are not different. 
This love and consciousness are not different. 
This love and the Absolute are not different.”
— Mooji, White Fire: Spiritual Insights and Teachings of Advaita Zen Master 

“I AM come here within you to be your life everlasting. I AM to resurrect you out of any tomb into which you may have fallen: the tomb of sin, the tomb of disease, the tomb of poverty, the tomb of unhappiness. Into whatever tomb you have fallen, I, your Christ-self, am here to resurrect you, to bring you back to the Father’s house so that you will “die” to that flesh and blood and bone belief, and actually witness your Self as you are, the Christ, the perfect son of God, the perfect offspring of the perfect Substance, Life, and Being.”
— The Altitude of Prayer by Joel S. Goldsmith

"He is the wisest who seeks God.  He is the most successful who has found God."
- Yogananda  

Bonus Quote:
“I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.”
— Rumi

Today's Practice:

Be the Love, watch the body.

Releasing Resistance to Love #GMFavorites
332

"I release all inner resistance and doubt.  I trust my inner power." - Louise Hay

Today, when you notice that familiar resistance to feeling Love, don't force It... simply invite It in.  It's a light intention.  A gentle turning toward and recognizing.  And in the instant you remember to turn, you are immediately aware of It, as It. Love wasn't covering Its face, we were covering ours.  Let's take our hands down from over our eyes, and  look... feel. 

There, Love is! 

I Love you,
Nik

“You must remember that the Name represents God within you. So you repeat any Name you hold dear and fill yourself with Divine ecstasy. This is the easiest and best method by which you can purify yourself. Think of God and you become the image of God. Take the holy Name and you become holy.

"After no great lapse of time I had the feeling that the prayer had, so to speak, by its own action passed from my lips to my heart. Further there came into my heart and precious warmth.

The prayer brought sweetness into my heart and made me unaware of everything else."

Don't Be the Worker, Be the Watcher
302

Becoming the Witnessing Consciousness is a very subtle shift,  that in the beginning brings about very subtle changes... so subtle you won't notice them until people start bringing them to your attention.

"You look happier."
"You look younger."
"You're so easy to talk to you, I love your energy."

But It's God's Light they're feeling.
It's God they're seeing.
It's God they're hearing.
And they don't know.
You know. 
You know what Is,
You have what Is.
You're aware of what Is, aware of God,
between the space of where you are and where you want to be,
trusting that as long as you continue to practice feeling Go(o)d, the work you're doing, the work you're watching, becomes your path. 

I Love you,

Affirm: I will not react to appearances today, I will see through them. #GMFavorites
768

My life depends on me being Love, because when I'm being Love, I can see through appearances, and when I can see through appearances, they change.  

This is how you see yourself out of any situation you have outgrown.  Not through resistance. When the resistance comes up, immediately see through it, too!  See through every thought, through every emotion, through every person, place, and thing, to the REAL.  And let the REAL manifest and define Itself.  

Note: The REAL feels like the feeling of Love in and as that body.  And you can sense It even when the body is discordant. 

I Love you and I'm with you!
Nik

Quotes: 

"The two worse feelings in the world  are not having a job and having a job."
-Unknown via IG

" In wealth is the fear of poverty, in knowledge the fear of ignorance, in beauty the fear of age, in fame the fear of backbiters, in success the fear of jealousy, even in body is the fear of death. Everything in this earth is fraught with fear. He alone is fearless who has given up everything."
-Swami Vivekananda

"Do not try to control matter.  Know it does not exist. You control it by knowing it does not exist." 
-Herb Fitch

"Being never came into being because It is eternal.  Therefore nothing in the three-dimensional world ever came into being. It came into appearing. "
-Bob Pilato 

"In 2022, I resolve not to react to appearances, but to see through them."

Knowing that only God exists is the deepest rest possible
405

A short and powerful meditation on the 'I' that you are, and how knowing It, is the deepest, most regenerative rest possible.  When you know that only It is here, there's nothing left to think or worry about because whatever you're thinking or worrying about, isn't there... where it appears to be Love is. Bliss is.  The Bliss that you're sitting in right now.  The spacious and loving 'I' that you'll be walking through later. Feel This and be free.

And here's a bonus activity from Wayne Dyer:

"Think of the five words -- "I am that I am." In your mind, place a comma after the word "that." Let "that" represent for you what you would like to manifest, or become as a person. I can't stress this enough -- write down on paper precisely what that represents for you. Whatever constitutes your wish, write it down and in your mind, call it "that." For example, "that" could mean your perfect health or abundance or a specific job or a happy, loving partnership. Write it down and be specific. And as you close your eyes in meditation, let your inner mantra be "I am that." For example, "I am perfect health," "I am abundance," "I am in possession of the job I seek."   

You take it a step further and let 'that' be... THAT... the All  that is being everything and nothing.  And then let THAT become what It's destined to be. That's trust. Surrender.

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quotes:    

"Who am I ?
Feel your reality
in the stillness, 
in the quietness, 
where there is no mind, 
no thought, no words, 
who are you then?
You just are. 
I Am. I Am. 
I Am not this. I Am not that. 
I Am. 
I Am that which has always been, I Am that which will always be, 
I Am That I Am. "
-Robert Adams       

"I  exist’ is the only permanent self-evident experience of everyone. Nothing else is so self-evident as ‘I am’. (…) So to do self-enquiry and be that ‘I am’ is the only thing to do. ‘I am’ is reality. I am this or that is unreal. I am is truth, another name for Self."

You Have to Feel the Invisible to Do the Impossible #GMFavorites
890

Today's Quotes:

"You have to see the invisible in order to do the impossible." - Dr. Michael Beckwith

"The universe is saying: Allow me to flow through you unrestricted and you will see the greatest magic you have ever seen." - Klaus Joehle 

"Praying for a change in your life, well maybe it's gon' come tonight." - Kanye West 

Today's Practice:

In your journal write, "The moment I feel Love, I Am ___________." The 'blank' is your desired reality.  Trust that when you are consciously feeling Love, you are Love, and that Love will take the form of that desired reality or something even more in alignment than you can presently imagine.    Don't be attached to outcomes, just trust that It will provide. It always has and It always will, and now, the process is conscious. 

Keep relaxing into Love, today. Keep breathing into Love, today.  Allowing It to flow unrestricted, absolutely nothing is impossible, and with Love, "everything is achieved." - Neem Karoli Baba

You do not heal 'from' trauma. You find healing 'in' the trauma. #GMFavorites
461

When you find and hold Love
before,
during,
and after
the Cross you've been given to bear,
you find that not only are you healed but that you can heal.
That your Presence Itself is healing.
Because It is everything.
And It is perfect. 

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quotes: 

"You do not heal 'from' trauma.
You simply come to know yourself
as Life Itself.

And you turn towards the wounded place.
And you flush it with attention,
which is love.

And maybe the wound will always be with you.
Maybe you will always walk with the hurt.
But now, you hold it. It doesn't hold you.
You are the container, not the contained.

It doesn't control you any longer, the wound.
Because it is drenched in awareness now.
Drenched in You.
Loved by You.
Even celebrated by You.

You do not heal 'from' trauma.
You find healing 'in' the trauma.
You find yourself at trauma's sacred core.
The One who is always present.
The One who can bear
even the most intense feeling states.
And survive.
The Indestructible One.
The Infinite One.
The Powerful One.
You."
- Jeff Foster

"To love is human
To feel  pain is human
But to feel love despite the pain is pure angel."
-Rumi 

"A boy came one time and asked, “Maharajji, did Jesus really get angry?” As soon as Maharajji heard the word “Jesus,” tears came to his eyes. He was sitting up when the question was asked, and he leaned over on his elbow and tapped his heart three times with tears coming down from his eyes. There was total silence for a moment. Maharajji had brought the reality of Christ into everyone’s consciousness, and he said, “Christ never got angry. When he was crucified he felt only love. Christ was never attached to anything; he even gave away his own body.” And at that point everyone was crying—we had gone through the complete Passion of Christ. And all of a sudden he sat up and said, “The mind can travel a million miles in the blink of an eye—Buddha said that.”
-Maharajji

Affirm: I Am fed from within #GMFavorites
491

Let's take a moment to feel the truth of our existence, the source of our sustenance,  the peace of the One that is meditating in us.  He chants in me.  She's the Silence in you.  It's the Love we are, and It feeds us. 

"I am fed from within.  Don’t change your outer way of living but inwardly know where and what Source is.  Break this attachment to the outer world.  Break the belief that you’re dependent on man for justice, or for loans, or for forgiveness, or for your support.  It takes a while to break your attachment to the outer world,  but you can do it if you can remember the word, 'Now'.

Now, am I and my Father one.  Now, do I draw upon the Kingdom of God within me.  Now, do I seek living waters within myself, the bread of life, the staff of life within myself.  No longer do I seek from 'man whose breath is in his nostrils', but now I know my attunement is the secret of the spiritual life.  Turning within a hundred times a day just for a momentary remembrance, 'thank you Father, the Kingdom is within me', 100 times a day.  Just smiling at the remembrance that now you are one with the infinite, the entire infinite is flowing forth into your experience."
-Joel Goldsmith 

"To go within means to come out of thinking. And when you come out of thought, you are within.  When you find the moment of rest from thought, you are in Consciousness.  
-Herb Fitch

THIS Automatically Dissolves Negative Beliefs #GMFavorites
452

"The 'problem' with most people who believe in God, is that they also believe in the devil.  That's believing in two powers rather than only one!"
-Gil Michaels 

"'...error is not real and it has no power.'  That is an incomplete statement because error does have power until it comes into contact with an illumined consciousness.  We should first complete the sentence by saying, 'error is not power in the presence of an illumined consciousness.'  Illumined consciousness is of course not human consciousness with knowledge.  You must bring the actual presence of God into the situation.  Harmony begins to come into your experience only as you attain the actual realized presence of God or spirit of God.  You can sum up the evils of the world in the words 'temporal power'.  Nothing happens to the errors that come into your experience until you have attained the realization of the presence of God-- then temporal power is dissolved as darkness is dissolved in the presence of light. Which means that evil or error of any nature is not power in the  presence of the realized presence of God." 
-Joel Goldsmith

"Faith is the greatest thing Jesus wanted us to learn: not blind faith in mere words, but faith born of the experience of his inner presence." 
-Swami Kriyananda 

Today's Practice:
Catch yourself believing in secondary powers.  Every time a thought is noticed about the inherent power of dollars or the media, immediately turn to the felt-presence of Love.  That's it.  You don't have to replace the thought or change the belief.  Just feel Love, and watch as every unnecessary belief is dissolved on sight.  This Love doesn't bring you into alignment, it IS alignment.  The moment you feel It, you're being your Self.  The moment you feel It, you're back on the Throne... it's Go(o)d here :) 

I Love you,

If Life is But a Dream, How Can We Wake Up? #GMFavorites
914

Today's Quote: "Past karmas can't be settled one by one. They get settled all at once, in a single moment, when you realize that all of this is a dream. When you realize that you didn't do anything you think you did." - @ImmortalTalks via IG

Today's Practice: Set your phone timer to go off once an hour on the hour to remind yourself that this is all like a dream. To remember to remember to hold the thread of Truth. To feel for the essence of Love in every seeming moment.  Only Love is here. Only Love is real.  Today's practice is to live lucidly, aware that "life is but a dream."  And to smile to that dream : )

Bonus quotes: Ramana Maharshi on the nature of reality-
‘The world should be considered like a dream.' - from Who Am I?
'Waking is long and a dream short; other than this there is no difference.' - from Who Am I?
'The present waking state is no more than a dream.' - from Talks 244
'The so-called waking state is itself an illusion.'- from Talks 199

Nisargadatta Maharaj on the nature of reality- 
"The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs be done."

Hardships Often Prepare Ordinary People for an Extraordinary Destiny. #GMFavorites
694

A quick review of different 'doors' or practices to keep you in Love this week, to get you through and beyond your hardships to the Go(o)d that awaits.
The Go(o)d you deserve.
The Go(o)d you ARE.
The Go(o)d that IS.

The only one I forgot to mention (that helped me TREMENDOUSLY) was:

1. Notice when you're worrying about something
2. Remember that you don't feel bad because what you're worrying about is true (or will come true), you feel bad because it's NOT TRUE. It's false. And that's the only reason you feel 'off'... because God doesn't agree with you on that subject.  When you and God differ on a topic, you get a sign. And that sign is 'worry', or 'fear'.
3. Feel the relief in that remembrance and feel Go(o)d again.  Now you and God agree!
4. And watch what happens :)

Finally, a seed to be planted-

“Your own concepts have created "walls" and so you need a "door." But when there are no concepts, there are no walls.”
-Ravi Shankar

Nik

Chanting is the Fast Pass at Disney World #GMFavorites
593

DM's with my Go(o)d friend, Ganesh Das, on IG last week inspired today's episode. Chant and proceed :)

"Nik: I had a mini revelation a few weeks ago that because we found God's Love, it’s like we can’t help but be in line… we are in cue for Home. But unless we are actively chanting, the line doesn't move very much lol. When we chant, it starts moving again 😂

Not sure if that makes sense to anyone but me, but yeah... Things move when I’m doing my 16 rounds.  Stagnation is felt otherwise, inside and out.

Ganesh Das: 🤯 That’s it!! Perfect visual representation. Wow. Chanting is the the Fast Pass at Disney World 🤣"

"If we don't fill our mind with prayer, it will fill itself with anxieties, worries, temptation, resentment, and unwelcome memories." - Unknown via IG

Chanting is the Fast Pass for our world, for this level of Consciousness.  Silently, inwardly, calling on God, that's how we pray, that's how we move. We fill our minds and hearts with Love and have the time of our lives!

I Love you and I'm with you,

How I Let Go of Anger #GMFavorites
799

Today's Quotes: 

"When God loves people He afflicts them.  If they endure with fortitude, He chooses them." - Rumi

"If only you can go through difficult times with inner Grace, every situation you face will be an opportunity to enhance your life." -Sadhguru 

"Don't stop believing, hold on to the feeling."- Journey, 1988

Today's Practice: The next time you're angry,  shift from being the one who is angry, to being the One that is aware that anger has come.  It's a simple (not easy, lol) shift that happens the moment you become aware of Silence, or Love, or your mantra.  You go from being angry to being the Loving Awareness of anger. Cut on some music, take a shower, change the scene (switch rooms) if you can...pause, breathe, smile.  And then let Love move that body into right action.  Let Love heal everything, because It is everything.

Today's Quotes-  

"Never confuse outer symbols for reality.  Know them for what they are.  Always turn within where Reality dwells allowing the living soul of you to speak for you the Truth. 

Always know that the Life Force which lives you is your guide and you will never confuse reality for that which is unreal.  

Always do you have access to the holy shrine within you. Come now to that shrine, let us be still together."
-Eva Bell Werber from 'In His Presence' 

"When formerly answering my mail or phone calls, if a student said, “I have a cold,” or “I need a job,” or “Business is bad,” or “I have family trouble,” I would reply that I would take care of it, assuming they knew and understood that I was going to take care of a spiritual realization. However, since I discovered that they were perfectly willing to stay in the attitude of problems and demonstrations, I stopped that practice about a year ago [circa 1963]. It is a form of metaphysics I do not understand. All I can do is try to lift you into a spiritual consciousness where you become aware of the presence of the Christ. I can do nothing about those other things.
-Joel Goldsmith, 1964 London Class

Come to Life - Unfold Your True Purpose #GMFavorites
531

"You've got to be centered in God, that's your number one priority.  That's all you've got to do at all times- to be centered in God and everything must come your way, it's a law.  Spirit draws unto Itself.  Spirit will employ you because Spirit is you. But if you're not Spirit or if you disclaim being Spirit or if you act like a human and not Spirit, how can Spirit serve?"
-Herb Fitch

"Your Heart knows the way. Run in that direction."
- Rumi

"Things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow Them."
- Deepak Chopra

"There's so much peace in knowing that you will not miss out on what's meant for you."
-unknown on IG

The Kanye West song I mentioned, 'Come to Life' from Donda (track 22).

Today's Practice:
Take out your notebook and write down your 'thing'.  That thing you can't stop talking about. That thing you would do for free.  And start doing some form of it today.  Begin unfolding your Soul's purpose.  Come to Life. Come to Love. Tell Divine Love, tell God that you're ready.

Say, "I'm ready."

I love you,
Nik

When you turn from your problems to My Presence,

But now you're about to see It.
You're walking right into It.

Today's Quotes: 

"My child. Your mind leaps from problems to problems to problems, tangling your thoughts in anxious knots.  When you think like that, you leave Me out of your worldview and your mind becomes darkened. Though I yearn to help, I will not violate your freedom. I stand silently in the background of your mind, waiting for you to remember that I am with you. 
When you turn from your problems to My Presence, your load is immediately lighter.  Circumstances may not have changed, but we carry your burdens together. Your compulsion to "fix" everything gives way to a deep, satisfying connection with Me. Together we can handle whatever this day brings.    
-Sarah Young, "Jesus Calling"

"Whatever action we are doing, we should be sure to keep the thought of God alive within. Whenever we sit or get up, we should prostrate in that place. It is good to cultivate the habit of considering our pen, books, clothes, vessels, and the tools of our job as imbued with divine presence and use them with care and respect. This will help keep the thought of God alive throughout our body, mind, and atmosphere."

Whatever Happens Around You Now, Will Be A Passing Cloud
341

See through your clouds all week.
This idea of a week, even a short one, is a cloud.
Going back to work tomorrow,  a cloud.
Are you going to meet it with fatigue, annoyance, avoidance?
Or can you meet it with His smile in your heart,
and a smile on your face?
Facing your clouds and seeing through them is how you qualify for God's calling on your life.

-Amma via @Ramdasbatchelder via IG 

“When you are free of your identity and your person, nothing more needs to be learned. It's like another power, a great presence, flowing through this body and it doesn't seem strange. The less there is of you, the more you are. What a paradox! You without you are the real You. You without your person are the face of God.
Your life doesn't get more complex, more sophisticated, more learned. You are not becoming a great scholar. It is so simple, there is a presence, wisdom, love, unlimited. A peace, unbreakable, alive, without end. Not a person. And yet you feel it inside, 'I don't do anything, I simply am.'”

The God Who Stays
495

Simply thinking, 'the Presence goes before me’,  is not enough.
You have to listen for that Presence,
feel for It.
In the feeling of It, It has already 'gone before you to make the crooked places straight',
It's healing what's behind you,
and It's where and what you are presently, performing miracles.
When you stay with Him.
He stays with you.
In you.
As you.
Consciously.

Today's Quotes:    

“God is compassion. He is waiting at the door of every heart. He is an uninvited guest everywhere, because whether you call Him or not, He is there. Whether you are a believer or a nonbeliever, He is within you uninvited. Behind every form, behind everything, God is hiding. He beautifies things and makes them what they are. He is the hidden formula of life. But He won’t reveal Himself to you. You won’t feel Him unless you call Him. Prayer is the invitation. You must invoke Him through prayer and meditation. Chanting, singing and repeating the mantra are invitations, asking God to reveal Himself.”
-Amma 

"The Presence does go before you, and It “makes the crooked places straight”—if you have the conscious awareness of the Presence. There are persons all over the world declaring, “The Presence goes before me,” and It does not do a single thing for them. No, no, the Presence does not go before you just because you declare some words, nor is God consciously present with you just because you declare It.

God is an experience. God must be experienced, and we experience God through our meditation. I am not saying meditation is the only way to have the experience. There are people on earth who have never meditated who have a conscious awareness of the presence of God all the time. But those who have not had the experience of the presence of God have not lived, and if they have not experienced the presence of God, it is because they have not specifically known the truth and then gone to the source where God is to be found.

Do you understand now what I mean when I point out there must be discipline and a declaration or statement of truth, a realization of truth, and yet, in the same breath, I say that when you get to the point of prayer or treatment, you do not need words or thoughts? Let this be clear to you. Do not hesitate about it, because it is very important."

-Joel S. Goldsmith: The Only Freedom. Chapter Six; The Discipline of Knowing The Truth; Practice Is Essential; Kindle: location pp 99

"We've been together for a while now
We're growing stronger everyday now
It feels so good and there's no doubt
I will stay with you as each morning brings the sunrise
And the flowers bloom in springtime
On my love you can rely
And I'll stay with you

Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arise
I will stay by your side
I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you."

Love comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant, and is still.
391

This Holy Silence is God saying;

"There is no problem...
that mind that is so heavy? It isn't even there,
because I'm there.
I'm here.
Hear Me.
Listen to Me."

And in that listening your shoulders come down,
your breath deepens,
lengthens,
your stomach goes soft,
your jaw relaxes,
you become aware of the weight of your phone in your hand,
and even though that face may not be smiling just yet,
your Heart Is.
And that's the 'upleveling'.

Today's Quotes:   

"The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still."
-ACIM

"Become so still you can hear the blood flowing through your veins."
-Mira

"Now when an emotional upset starts, it may start out of a thought process, but then it starts to involve all of the body — the adrenaline and all kinds of chemical reactions. Then often, one of the ways out of it is to work with the body.  For example, running or movement. Taking a walk. Doing things which start to release the energy, the kind of chemical buildup. Because you get that kind of nervous energy when you are emotionally upset. Then there is meditation–quieting down and allowing yourself to see how lost you’ve gotten. I mean on the deeper devotional path, there is the offering of the emotion to God.  Saying, “Here, You take it.  I offer it to You.”  There is appreciating your humanity. “Yea, here I am. I’m human. I just lost it again.  Ah so!” There’s the Ah so — Right? “Okay. Once more. Boy, am I hung up.” These are all spiritual techniques. See, it’s the upleveling. It’s the ability to see it without denying it. Not saying, “I’m not really upset.” “I am upset. Far out. Here we are again.” It’s like talking with God and saying “Oh, look at how deliciously human I am.” Not to milk it.  Not to keep feeding it, but not to push it away. That’s the quickest way through. To acknowledge it, allow it, and then use body energy to keep working out the chemical stuff that’s built up and the tension in the body that’s been built up. And then get on with it and just keep letting go, letting go, letting go. Sometimes music does it. There are a lot of techniques that do it."
-Ram Dass

“God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one”
-Rumi 

"Gain this consciousness of God’s presence and you have the whole secret of success in every walk of life.

Enter Into the Unknowing
586

That which sees the waves of unknowing and the waves of knowing, the waves of doubt, and the waves of clarity, is beyond both.
That, you are. 
 Like kneeling over a disturbed lake,
trying to see your reflection through the waves,
you can see something,
you can see a distortion,
but as the waves calm down,
as the lake goes still again,
there you are.
When the mind is still,
like it is right now,
more aware of silence than anything else,
there you are
(t)here, God is.

Today's Quotes:   

"When you feel pulled into two different directions,
surrender into the not knowing. 
It's okay to not know what direction to go in
when you feel this conflict.
It's your heart teling you to release control, 
to make space and allow spirit to lead you through."
-@JessicaDelmar_ via IG

"I entered into unknowing and remained there, knowing nothing.
This place transcends all thought. I had no idea where I was, but when I found myself there (without knowing where there was) I suddenly understood sublime things, ineffable things."
-St John of the Cross     

"This is what you are to do: lift your heart up to the Lord, with a gentle stirring of love desiring him for his own sake and not for his gifts. Center all your attention and desire on him and let this be the sole concern of your mind and heart. Do all in your power to forget everything else, keeping your thoughts and desires free from involvement with any of God's creatures or their affairs whether in general or particular. Perhaps this will seem like an irresponsible attitude, but I tell you, let them all be; pay no attention to them.
...
And so diligently persevere until you feel the joy in it. For in the beginning it is usual to feel nothing but a kind of darkness about your mind, or as it were, a cloud of unknowing. You will seem to know nothing and to feel nothing except a naked intent toward God in the depths of your being. Try as you might, this darkness and this cloud will remain between you and your God. You will feel frustrated, for your mind will be unable to grasp him, and your heart will not relish the delight of his love. But learn to be at home in this darkness. Return to it as often as you can, letting your spirit cry out to him who you love. For if, in this life, you hope to feel and see God as he is in himself it must be within this darkness and this cloud. But if you strive to fix your love on him forgetting all else, which is the work of contemplation I have urged you to begin, I am confident that God in his goodness will bring you to a deep experience of himself."

Find Go(o)d in the Space Between
360

God isn't revealed in the words,
you feel Him in     the       s p a c  e      between them.
Then you grab hold of that wordless feeling, the 'I Am",
and you keep feeling It throughout the words,
throughout all the noise of the world,
feeling the Kingdom while experiencing the world.
That's inner freedom.
The only freedom.
And then It appears to become evident as your outer freedom.

Clean Your Heart and God Will Move In
543

Watch your thoughts and watch yourself watching the thoughts.
Watch your mantra, and watch yourself watching the mantra.
Your mantra cleans up the inside,
and because in the Kingdom there is no inside or outside,
it cleans up what appears to be the outside for you, too.
It cleans up your relationships,
it cleans up your career,
it cleans up how you relate to your children,
it cleans up how you relate to your Self.
But it all begins with how you relate to your thoughts in this moment.
Assume responsibility for your practice, for your life,
until you realize that the responsibility is God's.
And that you do what you can, until Grace kicks in.
Until the Holy Spirit flows in,
and the blocks are cleared,
and the path is open,
and your success is established.

I Love you,
Nik

“Christ may make His home in your hearts”
-Ephesians 3:17

"If you clear the cobwebs of material sense from the darkest corners of your mind, you will be preparing a place for the inflow of the Holy Spirit. As that Divine Presence then establishes Itself as the Primal Force in your soul and consciousness, It will go before you to lighten all burdens of the human condition that have been restricting your progress on the path to mystical illumination. 
So, take every opportunity to retire often to the inner sanctum of your being, where this cleansing process can occur and then, allow this hallowed Presence to work Its magic in your ongoing life unfoldment."

Today's Quotes:   

"You have to meet God in this life. Don't let this life go by and miss discovering the Supreme One."
-Mooji 

"It is an insult to your Self to be born, live, and die without knowing the answer to the mystery of why you were sent here as a human being in the first place. To forget God is to miss the whole point of existence. Learn to feel God, and to enjoy Him."
-Yogananda 

"All objective experience- thoughts, images, feelings, sensations and perceptions- appears and disappears, but knowing or being aware remains present throughout all changing experience, just as a screen remains present throughout all movies."
-Rupert Spira

"If I pick a rose without you, 
it becomes a thorn in my hand. 
If I am the thorn, 
 I become a rose in your hand."
-Rumi 

"Don't worry about whether you are making progress or not... just keep your attention on the Self twenty-four hours a day.  Meditation is not something that should be done in a particular position at a particular time, It is an awareness and an attitude that must persist throughout the day."
-Annamalai Swami

You Don't Have to Carry Everything You've Been Through
409

How do you put down imaginary baggage?
You just know there isn't any.
And your shoulders come down,
and you sigh a breath of relief.
You sigh your way into a deeper relaxation.
Into a deeper trust.

You Are Closer To Your Victory Than You Are To Where You Came From
367

The moment you step onto God's escalator, going up,
like at the airport,
you loosen your grip on your baggage,
you relax a bit,
you can rest.
Even though at times it feels like you're taking two steps forward and one step back,
doubting,
believing,
doubting,
believing,
you're still rising.
You're still going up.
Everything is happening, the good and the bad, while you're continuing the inevitable ascent,
back to the Home you never left.

"Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit." When we have learned not to resist evil, not to fight it, and not to try to get God to fight it for us, we will not have to labor for our good: we will receive it by Grace.  Our very acknowledgment of the unreal and illusory nature of the discords of this world is the spiritual power."

The Creator is Hidden in the Creation
351

As you learn to let go of thinking even as the thinking is happening,
shifting the attention out of the mind,
and down into the silence of the Heart, 
the looking becomes Loving. 
And in that Loving vision,
everything is perfect. 
That's God's vision,
the original vision for your life.

Everything, the good and the bad brought you to this moment,

You have to trust that you're growing into all that you're destined to be.

“And He said to them…. “for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."
-Matthew 17:20

“When you recognize her beauty, the eye applauds, the heart stands in an ovation, and the tongue when she is near is on its best behavior, it speaks more like light. What does light talk about? I asked a plant that once, It said, “I am not sure, but it makes me grow.” 
–Thomas Aquinas, “Love Poems from God”, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

"Ask yourself, "during this silent time in the Presence, did I fear anything or anyone?" Your answer will certainly be, 'No'. This is your true state of Being. Accept no other."
-Allen White 

'The Inner Light is beyond praise and blame; like space it knows no boundaries, yet it is even here, within us, ever retaining its serentiy and fullness.  It is only when you hunt for it that you lose it; you cannot take hold of it, but equally you cannot get rid of it, and while you can do neither, it goes on its own way."

This Love is Building Your New Life
300

As long as you don't forget that you're actually Love,
that you're the underlying pattern,
the building blocks and the glue of all of creation,
then your foundation is strong, and you can build higher.

It's like you're in the trenches and you're building,
and you can't really see what you're building,
but you just keep trusting,
and you just keep listening for Silence,
and you just keep feeling for Love.
Every time you feel this Love,
every time this Love touches you,
that's another brick.
That's another level.
This Love is building your new Home,
It's building your new life.
Keep going.

I Love you,

A New Day is Dawning
411

The moment you touch His Peace,
the mind dissolves,
and you're back where the sun never sets.
You're back where there is no suffering.
You're back where there is no 'you',
and none of your problems,
and none of your limitations.
Just the Christ.
And you'll watch the Christ manifest Itself where you appear to be.
It fulfills Itself where you appear to be.
It serves and heals others where you appear to be.
It lives where you appear to be,
right now, It lives.
God lives.
Thank God,

"The new day is at hand, the birds are awakening, the air is soft and sweet, and for you also a new day is dawning. You feel that you have lived, have loved, have rejoiced and sorrowed; but I say to you, that which has seemed of such importance was only as the threads of silken web drawing ing you up to Me. Your life shall unfold. You are, as it were, but at the beginning of that which never began. The page lies fresh and white before you even as does the new day. Old things shall rule you no more. Old ways shall tempt you no more. You shall go on and up the sunlit lit path with Me. If at times you seem to be back again and the old familiar ways seem to take possession of you, only turn within and know that the One who dwells on the throne of your heart is after all that which is eternal. As you do your work, as you meet My children on the path, you will be love-filled and understanding, for it shall be the Christ in you who sees and works. All things shall be done with Me and by Me, and all your day shall be made a thing of beauty. Never shall you want, and never shall you lack, for I know not either state. When we function as ONE you cannot experience that which I do not know."

Today's Quotes:   

"Sit up tall and focus on what you can hear, and focus on the objects you can see by becoming aware of your present reality...Evoke the picture of a mountain in your mind. Look at its beauty, its peaks, valleys, and vegetation. It’s starting to rain, then raining harder. A torrent of water hits the mountain, but it remains undisturbed. Now bring your body into the image. Your head is the mountain’s peak, your shoulders and arms its sides, your torso the middle, and your legs the firm base. Even though the rain of your life circumstances is hitting you, you remain peaceful like the mountain that remains stable in any weather. The mountain is unaffected by passing clouds, so you are not affected by passing emotions and thoughts..."
-Sacinananda Swami

"Though struck by torrents of water, the mountain does not shake but rather becomes beautiful, being washed of dirt.  Similarly, a devotee, afflicted by the pains caused by his body, mind or other entities, is not disturbed because his mind is absorbed in the Supreme Lord."
-Srila Thakura via The Mountain Meditation

"Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river."
-Lao Tzu

SONG: "Higher Than the Mountains" (I reside)
Slow down
And give your mind a rest
Calm down
And do your best
Become one in the eyes of love
Seeking god above
It's all inside, it's all inside

I'm higher than the mountains
Higher than the mountains
Ooh higher than the mountain
Slow down, down low
You make me high, oooo"

Today's Quotes:   
"Dear you,
You who always have
so many things to do
so many places to be
your mind spinning like
fan blades at high speed
each moment always a blur
because you’re never still.
I know you’re tired.
I also know it’s not your fault.
The constant brain-buzz is like
a swarm of bees threatening
to sting if you close your eyes.
You’ve forgotten something again.
You need to prepare for that or else.
You should have done that differently.
What if you closed your eyes?
Would the world fall
apart without you?
Or would your mind
become the open sky
flock of thoughts
flying across the sunrise
as you just watched and smiled."
- by Kaveri Patel via Daily Meditation

"Life is found only in the present moment. I think we should have a holiday to celebrate this fact. We have holidays for so many important occasions - Christmas, New Year's, Mother's Day, Father’s Day, even Earth Day - why not celebrate a day when we can live happily in the present moment all day long? I would like to declare today ”Today’s Day”, a day dedicated to touching the Earth, touching the sky, touching the trees, and touching the Peace that is available in the present moment.

You Are Retiring From Your Past
410

Make an effort to hear the Silence now, and later you'll enjoy a pension.*
Later this Silence will just be (t)here without you having to work for It.
This Love will just flow to you,
to the new you,
to the retired you.

The one that Love is retiring  from that unhealthy job,
from that toxic relationship,
or from that version of you that didn't feel confident,
that version of you that didn't feel Go(o)d.
You're retiring form being that one, and you're stepping into this new life where all you know is God,
and the things of God,
and the people of God,
and the service of God.

Your whole life is changing.
Right now, as you read these words,
relaxing your shoulders,
feeling Go(o)d,
you're changing your whole life.
 
Keep holding God with both hands today,
and know God is holding you, too,
retiring, returning you to Hisself.

Today's Quotes:  

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” 
–Socrates

"You must always fix the mind on the Lord. Initially, you have to make some effort.  Later you enjoy a pension."*
-Ramakrishna 

"Do your work with one hand and hold onto God with the other. when you finish yor work, you will hold God with both hands."**
-Ramakrishna 

"It is normal to experience a silent pause, a limbo space, between the old you and who you are becoming. Some call this the void,  It may feel a little empty, because you are shedding  yet another layer of who you once were while finding your foot ing for what is next. It can be so subtle that you may not even notice it. Except for the feeling that something is off, something has changed.  What used to resonate and excite you may feel a bit duller. But this  is because your consciousness is expanding and you are being nudged-- there is more out there! So much more that will move your soul. Only you don't know where to look just yet.  And that is okay.  It is in the pause, where you are recalibrating. Coming back to your center. Quieting the noise... The truth of who you are is beyond any human concept beyond language. Beyond thought.  And only you can feel It for yourself."

Today's Quotes:

“People try to get away from it all—to the country, to the beach, to the mountains. You always wish that you could too. Which is idiotic: you can get away from it anytime you like. By going within. Nowhere you can go is more peaceful—more free of interruptions—than your own soul.”

"When you begin to sit still and you look upon the mind, the thoughts, you witness the thoughts, you watch the thoughts, the mind slows down.

Unalloyed happiness comes when the mind is inactive."

May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
384

Every time I remember that God is with me,
I know the world is for me, 
from Me. 

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
- Lao Tzu

Affirm: 'God goes with me wherever I go", and feel into this meditation from 'A Course in Miracles': 

"Today’s idea will eventually overcome completely the sense of loneliness and abandonment all the separated ones experience. Depression is an inevitable consequence of separation. ³So are anxiety, worry, a deep sense of helplessness, misery, suffering and intense fear of loss.

The separated ones have invented many “cures” for what they believe to be “the ills of the world.” But the one thing they do not do is to question the reality of the problem. Yet its effects cannot be cured because the problem is not real. The idea for today has the power to end all this foolishness forever. And foolishness it is, despite the serious and tragic forms it may take.

Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the world. It will cure all sorrow and pain and fear and loss because it will heal the mind that thought these things were real, and suffered out of its allegiance to them.

You can never be deprived of your perfect holiness because its Source goes with you wherever you go. You can never suffer because the Source of all joy goes with you wherever you go. You can never be alone because the Source of all life goes with you wherever you go. Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go.

We understand that you do not believe all this. How could you, when the truth is hidden deep within, under a heavy cloud of insane thoughts, dense and obscuring, yet representing all you see? Today we will make our first real attempt to get past this dark and heavy cloud, and to go through it to the light beyond.

There will be only one long practice period today. In the morning, as soon as you get up if possible, sit quietly for some three to five minutes, with your eyes closed. At the beginning of the practice period, repeat today’s idea very slowly. Then make no effort to think of anything. Try, instead, to get a sense of turning inward, past all the idle thoughts of the world. Try to enter very deeply into your own mind, keeping it clear of any thoughts that might divert your attention.

From time to time, you may repeat the idea if you find it helpful. But most of all, try to sink down and inward, away from the world and all the foolish thoughts of the world. You are trying to reach past all these things. You are trying to leave appearances and approach reality.

It is quite possible to reach God. In fact it is very easy, because it is the most natural thing in the world. You might even say it is the only natural thing in the world. The way will open, if you believe that it is possible. This exercise can bring very startling results even the first time it is attempted, and sooner or later it is always successful. But it will never fail completely, and instant success is possible.

Throughout the day use today’s idea often, repeating it very slowly, preferably with eyes closed. Think of what you are saying; what the words mean. Concentrate on the holiness that they imply about you; on the unfailing companionship that is yours; on the complete protection that surrounds you.

You can indeed afford to laugh at fear thoughts, remembering that God goes with you wherever you go."
-ACIM, Lesson 41

“Meditate unceasingly, that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. Cease being a prisoner of the body; using the secret key of Kriya, learn to escape into Spirit.“

"There's simply no polite way to tell people that they've dedicated their lives to an illusion."

"All is illusion except the name of God.”

“My thoughts are not me
But my thoughts make me feel like I am them
If I believe in them I start to feel, “I am having a bad day today “
A thought cannot have a bad day, 
It’s just the believer in the thought that can have a bad day.
But the believer in a thought is also a kind of thought…  The most dangerous thought actually, because nobody suspects it is a thought. We all think it is us.

If You Call to God, God Will Call Back to You.
241

But you don't even have to call.
Because there's no need to call someone you're in the room with,
you just turn to them,
and smile,
and mouth, "I Love you".

Today's Quotes:  

Every breath is God saying, "I love you."
-Prem  Rawat 

"Be yourself. Do not react to the world. Do not ever react to your own body.  Do not even react to your own thoughts. Learn to become the witness. Learn to be quiet."
-Robert Adams 

"Your job is to invoke the name of God. Not to react to the situation.  If you react to the situation, the situation will become amplified totally out of proportion.  Your feelings and your emotions will get worse as time goes by and you will have a lot of work to do to get back on the path. It makes no difference what the situation is.  It makes no difference how things appear.  It makes no difference what the world tells you. This is between you and God. If you call to God, God will call you back to you."

Today's Quotes:

"You see the flesh or recognize the spirit.  There is no compromise between the two. If one is real the other must be false, for what is real denies its opposite. There is no choice in vision but this one. What you decide in this determines all you see and think is real and hold as true. On this one choice does all your world depend, for here have you established what you are, as flesh or spirit in your own belief. If you choose flesh, you never will escape the body as your own reality, for you have chosen that you want it so. But choose the spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more except to heal and comfort and to bless."
-A Course in Miracles, Lesson 31

"I am a voice throughout time, spoken by few, and unheard by many. At times lost or forgotten, later recovered, but I persist eternally, for I am Truth. And Truth is That which never changes.  Attend to me, for I am consciousness in all matter."

Those aren't your problems, they're MINE.
450

It's like a switch get's flipped from me seeing my 11-year-old,
to feeling the Christ where I see my 11-year-old.
It happens just that fast.
But it's not me.
God is remembering in me,
God is pulling the veil back like,
"See, that's not your child she's Mine,
that's not your house, that's Mine,
these aren't your problems, they're Mine,
that's not your health, not your body , it's Mine.
That's not you breathing, that's Me.
And the weight gets lifted,
and the Silence gets louder,
and the Love gets stronger,
and there's only Gratitude.

"The flower doesn’t know it is giving fragrance. Does it even say, “I want to give a nice smell. Here is a nice person. I want to be extra nice to him?” A candle doesn’t know it is giving light. It doesn’t worry you, “Look. I’m wasting my time; I’m melting away. Come and read something with my light.” Does the candle ask you that? No, it is just there, the same as a Karma Yogi. Because of his very presence, people enjoy the light; people enjoy the smell, and people get the benefit."

Today's Quotes: 

"Regard the sensations of life as an endless parade.  You are Awareness seated at the reviewing stand, and the parade of sensations, actions, and thoughts is passing before you. This perspective will keep you from getting caught up in any particular entry..."
-Bob Pilato

"The finest emotion of which we are capable of is the mystic emotion... here in lies the germ of all art and all true science.  Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear, is a dead man... This knowledge, this feeling... this is the core of the true religious sentiment.  In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men."
-Albert Einstein via The Supreme Awakening I (highly recommended book of awakening stories by Craig Pearson, PhD)

"Mystic comes from the Greek word 'to close'; your eyes, your ears, presumably to dive within and experience the 'germ of all art and true science'."
-Craig Pearson, The Supreme Awakening 

"It takes a special kind of commitment to do what you're doing. To commit to the growth of your mind, the health of your body, the expansion of your soul, and the fruition of your purpose.  One step at a time because that next step may be the one that helps you round the corner on something big in your life.  At times it's hard to keep the momentum, but you always seem to find a way to get it going. No matter what. And that's where progress lies. That's where your commitment to your Self becomes your Truth.

When You Forget You're the Watcher, You Become the Thinker
269

There's no 'you' watching anything. There's just watching, always, already.  In each moment we practice waking up from the dream of being the thinker, into a truer reality of being the formless Watching.

You watch the anger,

you watch the breath.
And when you watch your Self,
You know God.

There’s only God.

Going Up... on a Thursday.
545

It’s only up from here. Trust.

I used to sing this song at church growing up— 'through it all, I learned to trust in Jesus, I learned to trust in God. Through it all, I learned to depend upon His word."

His Word, which was in the beginning, and IS now;

It's what you're hearing right now,
this Loving-Silence IS His Word.

And you're learning to listen for this vibrating Silence, through it all-- 
through all the noise,
through all the challenges,
like a rope, it's pulling you up and out of the chaos. 

You're learning to trust what's on the other end of that rope.
Trusting that It's pulling you to safety,
that It's pulling you to the recognition that you were never in a well of suffering.
That there was no well,
just the belief in one,
the dream of one,
just like the dream of 'you'.
And you wake up back on the throne,
you wake up back at His feet.

I Love you,

I Can See Your Halo
542

I can see your smile.   
You can feel your smile.
But behind closed eyes, there are no eyes.
There is no smile,
no face, 
no body.
There's just the ENERGY of that smile.
There's only Love.
The Love that you're either sharing, or expressing a need for in every seeming moment.
And now you know where to get It from.
You know that you are It.
You don't have to seek It.
You don't have to beg for It.
You don't have to chase It.
You don't have to earn It.
No one can take It from you.
No one can give It to you.
No one can withhold It from you.
You don't fall in Love.
You are Love.
You fell into your own Love.
Into your own Silence,
and you found God.
You found your Halo.
And I can feel It.

Joy starts with YOU – not with your relationships, job, or money.
426

If the work you do today does not bring you Joy, your work is to bring Joy to it.
Feel this river of Joy while you work.
The river of Joy was already there,
and then It seems to appear as you doing work.
So today, for the first time,
you're remembering the river while you work,
feeling the river while you work,
being the river while you watch the work.

Wherever you are, wherever you go, you bring the Joy.
You bring the party.
You don't go somewhere to have fun.
'I' is the fun!
You become aware of the Joy (of the 'I') in that place,
beyond the appearance of that place,
and so you can become aware of Joy in any place,
including your workplace.

I Love you ,

"Whistle while you twerk." - The Yin Yang Twins 

"In this life, we learn how to flow with the river, and stop fighting with the rocks."
-Lauren London 

"Flow of Grace." - Krishna Das 

"When we no longer search for the peace that the world can give, but seek only "my peace," the gates of consciousness open to admit the spiritual light which becomes the life of our being and our body. Many people desire spiritual power in order to enjoy more harmonious experiences. Their purpose in seeking God usually is to enjoy more and better earthly things, to catch larger fish in their nets bigger fish, better fish. But the basis of our work is to "leave your nets," to leave this search for more and better human good and open consciousness to the spiritual realities. Then the things which come to us in the outer world are the fruits of an inward grace. Grace can only be attained by a state of inner silence, a state of inner awareness and receptivity; therefore it is necessary for us to prepare ourselves for the experience of receiving that grace. This is the whole purpose of meditation."

Hardships Often Prepare Ordinary People for an Extraordinary Destiny.
694

A quick review of different 'doors' or practices to keep you in Love this week, to get you through and beyond your hardships to the Go(o)d that awaits.
The Go(o)d you deserve.
The Go(o)d you ARE.
The Go(o)d that IS. 

The only one I forgot to mention (that helped me TREMENDOUSLY) was:

1. Notice when you're worrying about something
2. Remember that you don't feel bad because what you're worrying about is true (or will come true), you feel bad because it's NOT TRUE. It's false. And that's the only reason you feel 'off'... because God doesn't agree with you on that subject.  When you and God differ on a topic, you get a sign. And that sign is 'worry', or 'fear'. 
3. Feel the relief in that remembrance and feel Go(o)d again.  Now you and God agree!
4. And watch what happens :)

Finally, a seed to be planted-

“Your own concepts have created "walls" and so you need a "door." But when there are no concepts, there are no walls.”
-Ravi Shankar

Today's Quotes:

*inspired by Abraham Hicks 

"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny."
-C S Lewis 

"Don't run away, run inward."
-Rumi

"People come to me and ask why God created this suffering world. "Why is there so much suffering if God is compassion?" Yes, God is compassion. Therefore, there is so much suffering. Unless you pass through suffering, you will not reach the ultimate ecstasy. It is a basic training. Unhappiness is a basic training for the ultimate flowering of happiness. Every suffering is a Buddha seed.

How can you reach ecstasy if you have not known agony? If you reach the world of ecstasy without knowing what agony is, you will not be able to recognize it. The recognition is impossible. Only through darkness can light be recognized. You may be living in light, but if you don't know darkness, you cannot know that you are living in light. A fish in the sea cannot know that the sea exists. Only if the fish is thrown out of the sea, does it come to recognize the sea. If it is thrown back into the sea again, the fish will be totally different and the sea will be totally different to the fish. Now the fish will be able to recognize it. The world is just a training ground. You must be thrown deeply into matter."
-Osho 

"The God to whom we pray remains with us all the time, disguised, hidden behind every person and object we encounter, but it takes an enormous amount of full attention to open our eyes and hearts to the simple truth that the Divine and Love are in absolutely everything, everywhere."

The More you Practice THIS, The More Your Life Changes
615

In the Adi Lila, Krishna said, "cleanse and decorate your body because you consider it Mine."
Not yours. 
I consider that 'Love is here, and only Love is here',
and where Nikki seems to be here, that's the illusion.
And it's only an illusion because one day, Nikki won't be here.
But 'I'  still will be,
because 'I' can't go anywhere.
'I' didn't come here, so 'I' can't leave here.
'I Am' what is known as 'Here'.
Hereness is Me.

That's what you have to consider.
That's what you have to practice.
Everything has to remind you of That.
Everything has to be your mirror.
Everything has to be God.
There's no room for anything else.
No room for imperfections.
Today you're going to look out and see imperfections.
Your thoughts are going to inform you of many. 
And your work is to stay woke enough to hear every report of an imperfection,
to see every seeming imperfection,
and to hear Go(o)d where it appears to be.
To feel Go(o)d where it appears to be.

It's that simple.
You see the imperfection and you know God.
You feel THIS (Love) that you're feeling right now, while you're looking at it,
and then what you're looking at changes.
Even if you can't detect it in that moment,
it has changed.
Your gaze is healing this world.
Because your gaze is silent.
Because your gaze is steady.
Because your gaze is God's. 

I Love you,
Nik

Spend All of Your Time With God, and God Will Take Care of You
544

You spend time with God by listening.
Think of that image of Dolores from Disney's 'Encanto', with her hand up to her ear. That.
Just listening. 
This listening is continuous,
that's mediation.
When you're listening you're not thinking,
that's meditation.
And then in the quiet listening,
Love is felt.
You hear God's silence, and then you feel God's Love.
You're gifted His Peace, 
and then you notice that that too, is continuous!
No matter what comes (or goes), this Peace stands.
All you have to do is remember to listen for the feeling of Peace,
and then that Peace dissolves everything that isn't Peace...
help comes,
because God is.

I Love you,

Today's Quotes: 

"...continuous reaching toward the center of our being, will eventually result in the experience of the Christ. In that moment, we discover the mystery of spiritual living: We do not have to take thought for what we shall eat, what we shall drink, or wherewithal we shall be clothed; we do not have to plan; we do not have to struggle. only Christ can live our life for us, and we meet the Christ within ourselves in meditation. The degree to which we attain the experience or activity of the Christ, the presence of the Spirit of God in us, determines the degree of individual unfoldment."

Remember your darkest hour
With dawn still far away
Remember the way that you longed for morning's light
And think of yourself as a candle in the night
Make believe this is the first day
Everything all brand new
Make believe that the sun is your own lucky star
And then understand the kind of gift you are

The gift you are
Like the very first breath of Spring
The gift you are
All the joy that love can bring
The gift you are
All of our dreams come true
The gift you are
The gift of you
You are the promise of all the ages
You are the Prodigal Son
You are the vision of prophets and sages
You are the only one
Dream of a bright tomorrow
Know that your dream will come true
Carry your dream in a sparkling crystal jar
Then you will know the kind of gift you are

The gift you are
Like the very first breath of Springtime
The gift you are
All the joy that love can bring
The gift you are
All of our dreams come true, yes they do
The gift you are
The gift of you
The gift you are
The gift of you"
-John Denver, 'The Gift You Are' 

(Never heard that song before, and only know of John Denver, but while trying to brainstorm a title along the lines of 'you are a gift', AFTER recording, AFTER editing, AFTER uploading, I  bumped into these lyrics and swooned! Serendipity at its finest.) 

"If you feel drained, tired or pulled in multiple directions, it's time to pause and breathe. Choose yourself for the rest of the month. Choose your happiness and purpose. Every person around you benefits from you being your highest self- give yourself what you need to thrive."
-@SylvesterMcNutt via IG 

"It's in the Silence where you will receive the message."
-Robert Adams 

"Where Truth is (and there is nowhere It is not), there is no problem at all. Where there 'appears' to be a problem, believe me, if you start' with Truth only, you will suddenly discover there is no problem, for a problem only could be where Truth is not."
-Aiken

I Woke Up Like This
558

You are now a conscious expression of the All Attractive One,
the Powerful One, the Opulent One. 
This is why you feel Go(o)d for no reason.
This is why people are attracted to you. 
This is why your life is changing.
This is real Beauty.
And you finally woke up to It.

"My child, you ask for service. Verily shall it be given. All about you shall you find it. You so little realize the Great Power flowing through you. You are like a mighty dynamo, and more and more shall you see miracles rise up as you pass on your way. Only Love much, bless, and give thanks, and know you serve Me day by day as I see fit. You cry out for light and understanding, and you cry not in vain. Great truths shall be revealed to you; listen for My Voice, that these things shall not pass you by. You often feel a need to find Me in ceremonies, monies, in rituals. I feel a crying-out in your soul for some way to contact Me. But listen carefully and ponder much on this-a truth which many lose, and which keeps them from the companionship with Me which otherwise they might have. It is this: In simple ways and by simple means is the best contact made between man and his Maker. You need not seek out places where altar fires burn, or go through deeply impressive ceremonies. Light the altar fires in the throne room of your heart and there shall you find Me, and know Me, through the simple everyday things in life, all about you. Yes, I AM even now in the gentle breeze you hear through the rustling leaves. I AM in the shaft of sunlight slanting across the grass. I AM in the fragrance of the flowers, in the starry sky and the soft moonlight. Learn to know Me through these simple, lovely things of My Creation, and never shall you have need to seek Me out in complex ways. So blest art thou to hear My Voice in the inner thoughts and recesses of your soul, My child, as I bring you these truths. You can serve Me well, for they are as a foundation stone for a life lived in My Service."

For once He asked me to join Him on a walk
through this world, and we gazed into every heart on this earth,

And sometimes when we passed
a soul in worship 
God too would kneel down.
I have come to learn: God adores His creation."

Today's Quotes: 

"You do not heal 'from' trauma.
You simply come to know yourself
as Life Itself.

And you turn towards the wounded place.
And you flush it with attention,
which is love.

And maybe the wound will always be with you.
Maybe you will always walk with the hurt.
But now, you hold it. It doesn't hold you.
You are the container, not the contained.

It doesn't control you any longer, the wound.
Because it is drenched in awareness now.
Drenched in You.
Loved by You.
Even celebrated by You.

You do not heal 'from' trauma.
You find healing 'in' the trauma.
You find yourself at trauma's sacred core.
The One who is always present.
The One who can bear
even the most intense feeling states.
And survive.
The Indestructible One.
The Infinite One.
The Powerful One.
You."
- Jeff Foster

"To love is human
To feel  pain is human
But to feel love despite the pain is pure angel."
-Rumi 

"A boy came one time and asked, “Maharajji, did Jesus really get angry?” As soon as Maharajji heard the word “Jesus,” tears came to his eyes. He was sitting up when the question was asked, and he leaned over on his elbow and tapped his heart three times with tears coming down from his eyes. There was total silence for a moment. Maharajji had brought the reality of Christ into everyone’s consciousness, and he said, “Christ never got angry. When he was crucified he felt only love. Christ was never attached to anything; he even gave away his own body.” And at that point everyone was crying—we had gone through the complete Passion of Christ. And all of a sudden he sat up and said, “The mind can travel a million miles in the blink of an eye—Buddha said that.”

Persisting in God's Love, Change is Here

Even if the world is not smiling back at you yet,
you FEEL its smile,
you FEEL the changes beneath the surface,
you FEEL the Go(o)d behind the scene,
pervading the scene,
appearing AS the scene.
You know the Secret.
You're in on the Secret,
and that's why you smile.
Persisting in His Love,
swaying,
looking, and not letting the appearance of the world make you forget to feel His Love.   
That's the real change. 
And only from here do you see the 'outer' one.

Today's Quotes:

"For I AM the 4th Dimension. I AM the dimension where all karmic law is broken, shattered, never to raise its head again. Where I AM, even in the midst of the appearance of war, there is peace; in the midst of the appearance of lack there is abundance. Where I AM, there is no depression. Where I AM, there are no broken bones. Where I AM, there are no germs. Where I AM there is no death, because I AM Life Itself. Such a realm has existed before Time was invented by the mind of man. We are walking in a realm, a realm called I, a realm of Spirit which man calls God and this Spiritual Realm is waiting patiently, just beyond the periphery of every man's consciousness, waiting for him to expand, to open up. And that's the meaning of Rebirth.

As your consciousness expands to become aware of this invisible kingdom around you, it enters into your consciousness; and its name is I. It is infinite. It is present. I stand here NOW, the perfect invisible Kingdom, waiting for anyone who has the vision, the understanding, the courage, the desire to serve truth instead of concept. And so we open up. We open out a way for that imprisoned splendor. And when you do, then you receive your signs very quickly, for I AM quick, sharp, powerful. The moment you turn to I, I rushes to you. And then you find power is not in the mind. Power is not in the sword. Power is not in the bomb. Power is not in the human planning and scheming. Power is simply in the receptivity to I. That's your new philosopher stone. I in the midst of you can do all things. Nothing is impossible to I."

After a few minutes, he had a blissful expression on his face and a tear trickled down his cheek. He opened his eyes and said, “He lost himself in Love.” Try the meditation of losing yourself in love.."

Chanting is the Fast Pass at Disney World
593

DM's with my Go(o)d friend, Ganesh Das, on IG last week inspired today's episode. Chant and proceed :)

"Nik: I had a mini revelation a few weeks ago that because we found God's Love, it’s like we can’t help but be in line… we are in cue for Home. But unless we are actively chanting, the line doesn't move very much lol. When we chant, it starts moving again 😂

Not sure if that makes sense to anyone but me, but yeah... Things move when I’m doing my 16 rounds.  Stagnation is felt otherwise, inside and out. 

Ganesh Das: 🤯 That’s it!! Perfect visual representation. Wow. Chanting is the the Fast Pass at Disney World 🤣"

"If we don't fill our mind with prayer, it will fill itself with anxieties, worries, temptation, resentment, and unwelcome memories." - Unknown via IG

Chanting is the Fast Pass for our world, for this level of Consciousness.  Silently, inwardly, calling on God, that's how we pray, that's how we move. We fill our minds and hearts with Love and have the time of our lives!

Today's Quotes-  

"...and the greatest gift God can give is His own experience. 
Every object, every creature, every man, woman and child,

to feel as God feels, to Be as God is."

"The Life Force that perpetuates your heartbeat and maintains and sustains all the other organs and functions of your body is not physical, but it is spiritual... is not temporal, but is eternal.  And once that basic truth has been established in your consciousness, you will experience the dissolution of all fear, the healing of all diseases, and the resolution of all conflicts.  This is the supernal activity of the Word being made flesh... this is the sacred process of Divine Grace being established on earth as it is in Heaven."

Today's Quotes-  

"Never confuse outer symbols for reality.  Know them for what they are.  Always turn within where Reality dwells allowing the living soul of you to speak for you the Truth. 

Always know that the Life Force which lives you is your guide and you will never confuse reality for that which is unreal.  

Always do you have access to the holy shrine within you. Come now to that shrine, let us be still together."
-Eva Bell Werber from 'In His Presence' 

"When formerly answering my mail or phone calls, if a student said, “I have a cold,” or “I need a job,” or “Business is bad,” or “I have family trouble,” I would reply that I would take care of it, assuming they knew and understood that I was going to take care of a spiritual realization. However, since I discovered that they were perfectly willing to stay in the attitude of problems and demonstrations, I stopped that practice about a year ago [circa 1963]. It is a form of metaphysics I do not understand. All I can do is try to lift you into a spiritual consciousness where you become aware of the presence of the Christ. I can do nothing about those other things.

Controlling Your Anger - Are You Up for THIS Challenge?
515

"If you circumambulated every holy shrine in the world ten times, it would not get you to heaven as quick as controlling your anger."
-Kabir 

And we control our anger by letting it go.
And we're letting it go by feeling what's also (t)here, 
allowing what's also (t)here to take us deeper into our Self, 
into the silent Unknown,
that becomes the Known blessings.

I challenge you to plant seeds of Peace in chaotic moments, and watch your whole life flower.

Fulfillment of desire is the natural consequence of abiding in and AS This Place. 

You're Home, Here.

You're God's, Now.

Today's Quotes:

"Shake off the story that you have to grind yourself into dust every day. Putting space in your life and letting go of what doesn't matter will give you the energy to focus deeply on what does." -@HeyCoryAllen on IG

"Fulfillment of desire is a natural consequence of knowing the Self.   For example, the Kena Upanishad points out that, "thorough the Self one gains strength" (atmana vindate viryam).  The Sanskrit word for strength is viryam, which also means 'vitality', or 'energy'.  When the Self is realized through direct experience, the individual enjoys a state of contentment in which desires are no longer experienced as unfulfilled needs that cling to the heart. Then whatever the individual might require for the maintenance of life will be produced through the creative power of his or her own nature. The Mundaka Upanishad explains how desires are fulfilled in an effortless manner for one who knows the self:

'Whatever world a man of purified nature sees clearly in his mind,
and whatever desires he desires, that world and those desires he wins.
He who knows Brahman dwelling in the secret place, in the field of the transcendent, wins all desires together with Brahman, the all-knowing.'

The Katha Upanishad expresses the same idea:

'This imperishable indeed is Brahman.
This imperishable indeed is the Supreme.
For one who truly knows this Imperishable,
whatever he desires, is his.'"
-Excerpt from  'Upanishads' (A New Translation) Vernon Katz and Thomas Egenes

There's No Such Thing As Peace of Mind
677

There’s no such thing as peace of mind. 

But there is a Peace beyond the mind.

A Peace that temporarily appears as the mind, while simultaneously, eternally remaining as Itself. 

A Peace that inner chanting brings attention to. 

A Peace that doesn't have to be practiced.

A Peace that doesn't need a name.

A Peace that appears as the best version of you.

A Peace that appears as all things.

Pause.

Smile.

Radiate Peace.

A lot can happen in a month. Watch.

Today's Quotes:

"No prayer is complete without presence."
-Rumi 

"By sincere prayer you put yourself in a receptive mood. You become good receiver. You tune your heart radio. Prayer is a form of tuning. Once you tune your heart through prayer, you get all the cosmic things Whatever you pray for, you get. Pray for peace, you are tuning you radio to the peace station. Pray for beauty, you tune your radio to the beauty station.
More things are wrought by prayer than the world dreams of: We don" know the power of prayers. Don't we say, "You want it, you got it!" It is literally true; if you really want it sincerely, you get it.  Real want, sincere want, honest want is prayer. Through that sincere prayer, you tune your heart to God."

"Sit quietly
and listen for a voice that will say be more silent.
As that happens your Soul starts to revive."
-Rumi 

"When the divine joy comes, immediately my breath is still and I am lifted into the Spirit. I feel the bliss of a thousand sleeps rolled into one, and yet I don't lose my ordinary awareness. This is universally the experience of those who go deep in the superconscious state. When the profound ecstasy of God falls over you, the body becomes still, the breath ceases to flow, and the thoughts are quiet - banished, every one, by the magic command of the soul. Then you drink of God's bliss and experience an intoxication of joy that not a thousands draughts of wine could give you."

I saw it, I say,  written on all creatures, animate and inanimate, rational or not, all bore this name of Goodness. I saw it even on the chair I was using as a kneeler. I understood then that all these creatures have of good and all the services and helps that we receive from each of them are a blessing that we owe to the Goodness of our God, who has communicated to them something of his infinite Goodness, so that we may meet it in everything and everywhere."

You're giving yourself this experience right now,

As you read these words, you're relaxing your shoulders.
You're feeling the weight of your phone in your hand,
you're feeling your inner 'yes'. 
When you feel, 'yes', for life, no matter how It's showing up,
It'll start showing up, and showing out!
It'll finally start giving what it was supposed to have gave.
Trust It. Trust your Self.

The Most Productive Thing You Can Do Today
496

For me, productivity means how often I'm consciously radiating Love during the day.
How often I'm resting as Love.
Not the body resting on the couch or in the bed,
but how often I'm resting as the witness of the body,
witnessing the mind,
being simultaneously aware of being Nikki AND Love,
hearing thoughts while hearing the Silence,
hearing the world while feeling the Silence.
Feeling the Kingdom. Feeling Go(o)d.
 
That's how I define productivity. 
Because from this place, Nikki appears to be very productive.
When I'm rooted in this power, Nikki gets stuff done.
The weeks fly by and they would be labeled as productive in the traditional sense, but only because I AM productive in  My sense, in My way, as we define It in our Language.
The unsounded One.

Today's Quotes: 
"If you can only learn to rely on the Self. How do you learn to rely on the Self? By trusting life. Trusting life just the way it is. I'm not saying to trust certain people, or to trust certain conditions, certain situations. I'm saying just to trust life. To trust life you go beyond people, places and things. You trust the substratum of all existence. You trust Consciousness. In other words, you feel and believe in your heart that there is a power that knows the way. You came out of it. So you're That also. For you are It. You are that power yourself. And you feel good about it. This is what I mean when I say, trust the power that knows the way."

Today's Quotes:

"There is no order of difficulty in miracles.

To God, every moment is a new beginning. And God is held back by nothing. God would never say, "I could help you, but you messed up badly so I can’t.”

Neither does He say, “I could give you a great life, but your parents were dysfunctional so my hands are tied." Limits do not stand before the limitlessness of God; it is only limits to our faith, not inherent limits in our circumstances, that would keep us from experiencing miracles.

Every situation provides us the chance to live with broader, more audacious faith that all things are possible. God is bigger than any limited circumstance in our past; God is bigger than any limits that the world is showing us now. Limitations exist only as a challenge to us to mature spiritually, to realize that through the grace of God we are bigger than our problems.

There is no order of difficulty in miracles. When we pray to God to dissolve the messes that we have created, His spirit enters our minds. It then turns us into the people we need to be in order to make all things right."
-Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

"You're here to do wonders but you must  be patient with yourself. Patience is an attitude of mind characterized by poise, inner calmness, and quiet endurance in the face of trying conditions. It is perfected only in those who have an unwavering knowing in the inner God (Good)."

"Be fearless. Whatever it is that you fear, take your mind away from it and leave it to Me. Have faith in Me and you will be free at once."
-Mahavatar Babaji 

"As long as there are thoughts there will be fear."
-Ramana Maharshi 

"Think of Me until all thoughts are dissolved."
-Bhagavad Gita 

"The technique of the witness is to merely sit with the fear and be aware of it before it becomes so consuming that there’s no space left. The image I usually use is that of a picture frame and a painting of a gray cloud against a blue sky. But the picture frame is a little too small. So you bend the canvas around to frame it. But in doing so you lost all the blue sky. So you end up with just a framed gray cloud. It fills the entire frame.

So when you say, 'I’m afraid,' or, 'I’m depressed,' if you enlarged the frame so that just a little blue space shows, you would say, ‘ah, a cloud.’ That is what the witness is. The witness is that tiny little blue over in the corner that leads you to say, ‘ah, fear.’"

It's only after you've broken through your shell that it hits you: you're responding differently, you're smiling deeply, money is flowing to  you more easily, your relationships are improving or ending, the lens in which you view your experience is adapting to your upgrades. This will be one of the biggest chapters to your evolution. One shift at a time is altering your entire world.
-Pedro de Santos via IG @sourcemessages

"They can't see how beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that.”
-Naya Rivera

"Love is the cure, for your pain will keep giving birth to more pain until your eyes constantly exhale love as effortlessly as your body yields its scent."
-Rumi (via Daniel Ladinsky's 'Love Poems from God')

"One day He did not leave after kissing me."
-Rabia  (via Daniel Ladinsky's 'Love Poems from God')

"Sing my tongue; sing my hand; sing my feet, my knee, my loins, my whole body. 
Indeed I am His choir."
-St. Thomas Aquinas  (via Daniel Ladinsky's 'Love Poems from God')

The Password Is Love
331

As you read these words, listen for your heart beating.
And as you read this line, become aware of your breath.
And as you read this line, become aware of Love,
no matter how subtle,
no matter how Light,
in your hands, in your feet, in your chest.
You're feeling the password right now.
I'm sharing It with you right now.   
But it's not a word. 
It's a feeling. A Go(o)d one.
And when you're aware of It, you gain access to the eternal silence beyond the heart beating, to the  blissful stillness beyond the breath, to the Love beyond thoughts. 
Give this password to every inner and outer barrier today. 
Feel Love.
And go beyond.

"Keep the Lord's name as constant as breathing."
-Sai Baba 

"If you give yourself one complete minute of focused presence, to simply stop; even to listen to your heart beating, it will take you out of your head and introduce you to the moment which is complete in itself. It is not on the way to another moment. It is not a bridge to another opportunity. It is the timeless perfection. So stop and sink into this timeless moment."
-Mooji

"I have also given you the password, Love. When you come to barriers across your way, use the word freely and forcefully and nothing shall hinder your progress. You will be shown flowers of attainment which will bloom for you as you do well the tasks of the day, as you live largely and freely as a child of the Father who holds all good in His hands for you."

If you thus overcome this sorrow of samsara (birth and death), you will live here on earth itself like a god, like Brahma or Vishnu!

No Doubt
722

The way you have no doubt that you're alive?
You have to have THAT kind of faith that God is providing for you.
Can you have no doubt about that?
No doubt that you're being guided?
No doubt you're being sheltered, protected?

When you get quiet,
when you 'be still and know' that you're aware,  that you're alive,
you're simultaneously acknowledging  the presence of God.
The aliveness and the  presence of God are One.
 The "I Am" and the presence of God are One.
Your presence is His.

In that moment, just as you don't doubt that you're alive,
you also don't doubt that you're being carried.

I Love you and I'm with you,

In the presence of God your mind is silent.

Your True prayer, the one behind the words--
to be happy,
to give love,
to be loved,
to be Love.
He's not asking you to do anything but trust.
Give this silence, this stillness your attention,

And in the end,
which is the beginning,
you'll see that there never was a path to contentment,
or steps made on it,
or breaths taken in it.
or persons met along it.
There's no one here to recognize Love;
to practice It, or to turn toward It.
Only Love is here.
And that's the final Truth.

Practice: Cool Head, Warm Heart
467

When the heart is warm with Love, the head is automatically cool.   
Your response is chill.
Your thoughts are chill.
Sometimes, it's like they're saying- 
"Thank you for giving me this Love as a reminder of Your presence.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity, this moment, to remember you."

And you can take as many of these moments as  you need during the day. 
Every time you close your eyes and go within,
that's the Sabbath.
That's true rest.
That's the absence of desire (aka the feeling of lack),
and the presence of all things Go(o)d.

Heart As Wide As The World by Krishna Das

“Holding me in your arms’ vast embrace
Only love shining in endless space
All I need is to be with you
All my prayers have been heard
All I want is to rest inside
Your heart as wide as the world

I looked away
Your beauty too much to bear
Where could I run?
Your eyes,
I found them everywhere
All I want is to sing to you
The song that no one has heard
All my life has lead me to
A heart as wide as the world

Shree Raam Jai Raam Jai Jai Raam“

“No matter how turbulent the situation, Lord Shiva’s head and inner realm remains peaceful. Though the head is cool, the heart is always warm with compassion for the world. What we need is a cool head and a warm heart. But what we see in the world today is the very opposite: most people are hot-headed and cold-hearted. Everyone’s head is heated up by worldly thoughts, and the heart has become frosty with selfishness. If our head is cool, we can face the most adverse circumstances peacefully and turn it to our advantage."
-Amma 2017 via @Sherenevismaya on IG 

"We must have one purpose alone: to seek the realization of His presence, His power, and His grace. When we emerge from these periods, usually we find that the “things” are added unto us: whatever knowledge we need to carry on our business, whatever physical strength or moral support."
-Joel Goldsmith, 'A Parenthesis in Eternity'

Love Will Deliver You, Expeditiously.

The whole world is your Self.
When you start feeling this Truth, you recognize that you can't make a wrong decision.
Rumi said whether you look to your right, or to your left, God is there, your Self is there.
Whether you go to the right or to the left, you're going to end up where you're supposed to be.
You're going to end up as who you're supposed to be.
Stop confusing yourself.
Stop listening to that little voice inside, the one of doubt and confusion,
 and start listening to the Divine One.
The Silent One.
The Real You.
It knows The Way.
It knows that every way is The Way,
and It'll deliver you, expeditiously.

Great Things Shall Be Required of You
493

"Step out onto the path of service, but remember-do not fail to take the time each day for a loving worship and adoration of the King of your life. Then shall you be fitted and worthy for the work which you are to do."
-Eva Bell Werber, Voice of the Master

Today, every time you're troubled by a thought, remember where that thought is taking place.
It's taking place in the ocean of Love.
Hear this Silence.
Feel this Love.
And you'll see that even that disturbing thought,
its essence is Love.
And because you recognize it,
it turns back into Love,
it turns back into silence,
where it becomes a more beautiful thought.
One that says,
"you're not upset, you just forgot that you're submerged in Love,"
or
"how can I serve you",
or
"how can I help this one"?
These are the thoughts you have when you recognize that God is in you and you are in God.
This is the new you.
The God you.

All you need is love, love

There's nothin' you can know that isn't known
Nothin' you can see that isn't shown
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be

We have to experience Love more than we're experiencing the world, and that's what changes the world.

Every time you hear the word 'war',
PAUSE
and remember, 'only Love is here.'
And allow these words to guide you back to the silent Awareness of Love.
You've been practicing for this very moment,
to see that you can remember,
to see that you have the courage to look through appearances,
to not judge by appearances,
to know that God is in the midst of you,
is in you,
is being you,
and everyone else.

I Love you and I'm with you,
Nik

Today's Quotes: 

"This sky. This sky where we live is no place to lose your wings, so 
love
love
love."
-Hafiz 

"It wasn’t for pleasure or pastime that Scripture reveals that “one with God is a majority,” or that even “two or more gathered together in my name,” or that “ten righteous men can save a city.” We don’t have to wait for three billion people to learn this truth to save the world. A little handful of us can uphold this I, can live with this I up here, face the world with It always, and watch the evils of this world dissolve in the consciousness of personal enemies, national enemies, international enemies. But somebody must hold up the banner of I. Somebody must admit the I that is knocking at the door of this whole world, seeking entrance. Now, let us go beyond this room; let us go beyond each of us individually, and let us remember that this I, of which I have been talking, is God. The I is knocking at the door of this entire world at this minute and begging to be admitted, and all we have to do, a little of us, a group of us—is to open this world to the presence of I. Open the door and say, “Father come in, for in Thy presence, there is no warfare; in Thy presence is peace; in Thy presence is fulfillment.” And, open the door of your consciousness, open the door of this universe, and admit God. For this world is suffering from only one thing: the absence of God."
-'The Government of Eden' by Joel Goldsmith 

"Even when you let go of His hand, He's still holding yours."

God Cannot Be Explained. God Can Only Be Lived.
344

You don't have to pray for God's presence, ever.
You never have to ask Love to come to you or reveal Itself to you.
It appears as the darkness behind closed eyes.
It's appearing as the sound and feel of your heart beating.
It's appearing as the hands holding that phone, reading these words.
The presence of your breath is the presence of God.
And the presence of God is the presence of everything.
You are this presence.
Aware of the shoulders relaxing.
Aware of the face smiling,
Aware of the body swaying.   
Self Aware. 
 
I Love you,

"You don't have to be concerned about demonstrating anything after tonight. You do not have to take thought, or give yourself a treatment for supply.  From now on, your treatment is: "I and the Father are one, and all that the Father hath is mine."
-Joel Goldsmith
 
"God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self realized, it is already your true and natural state.  Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being.  For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way."
-Sri Ramana Maharshi

“God cannot be explained, He cannot be argued about, He cannot be theorized, nor can He be discussed and understood. God can only be lived.  Therefore, the GOAL is to realize the Reality and attain the “I am God” state in human form.”
-Meher Baba, God Speaks 

"God is everywhere and does everything. God is within us and knows everything. God is without us and sees everything. God is beyond us and IS everything.
God alone IS."

"Silence is not a thing to find-- It is a place inside me."
566

Our only practice is keeping Loving-Silence, the presence of God, in the foreground of our experience. 
Hearing This first.
Seeing This first.
Noticing This first.
Being This first,
then being human,
then being a mom, sister, friend, a husband.
Being Love first, 
because It makes you a better mom, sister, friend or husband.

Silence is not hiding from you.
You can't find It.
You can't earn It.
you don't have to understand It.
You just have to STOP,
and listen to It...
listen for It...
just like you're listening now...
just like you're relaxing your shoulders now...
just like you're smiling now :)
 
Don't talk to God today.
Just listen. 
Feel It (the Silence). 
Hear It (the Silence).
Trust It (the Silence).
Then, watch It :)

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quotes:

"Any attempt to find peace is throwing  a stone into a calm lake.  Peace is already here. You just disturb it by running outside. When you don't make any attempt there is no mind, but when you try to make any attempt, there rises the mind which is going to disturb you."
-Papaji

"Silence is not a thing to find-- It is a place inside me.
I can go there and visit whenever and wherever I want."
-'The Boy Who Searched for Silence' by Andrew Newman

"Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside. Silence doesn't mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside.  If you're truly silent, then no natter what situation you find yourself in you can enjoy the silence."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Today's Quote:   

"The true beginning of prayer is warmth of the heart, which scorches (compulsions and disorders), fills the heart with the joy and delight of unshakable love and strengthens it with sure conviction." (St. Gregory of Sinai) This state is so deeply blissful and satisfying that the Christian tantric masters say it is one and the same as heaven, a heaven in the heart. "
-Dr. James Hughes Reho, 'Tantric Jesus'

The gravest error man can make is 'man on earth and God in heaven. Me here, God there.' In our lifetime we have all made that error and we perpetuated it in many ways.  Every moment of fear, every doubt, every lack, every limitation comes from 'me here, God there'... never in the same place."

The Only Thing of Real Value is Love Itself
322

When I sit down in the morning to chant, I'm sitting down to feel Love.
When I' sitting down to record for you, I'm sitting down to feel Love.
When I'm doing yoga or breathing exercises, I'm doing it to feel Love.
When I'm doing any spiritual practice, ever, I'm only doing it as a way to feel Love.
The practices will "get you in the room with Christ.
But only Love will keep you (t)here."*

Everything I do, I do for Love... to remember It, to feel It, to know It as my Self.

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quote:    

"The most subtle aspect of my teaching is Love. The circle around that subtle point, in order to realize it, is the spiritual practices such as meditation, repetition of the name of the Lord, talking with good people, directing the mind away from harmful thoughts, and so on. In themselves, these spiritual practices are of no value. The only thing of real value is Love itself."
-Satya Sai Baba 

"The true mystic is not a devotee lost in ecstatic communion with the One, or a reclusive saint who avoids others. The true mystic lives alongside other people- coming and going, eating and sleeping, buying and selling, marrying and chatting-- but not for a moment does he forget God."
-Abus Sa'id lbn Abi-l-Khayr 

"The yogi medicine puts you in a room with Christ.  But it can’t keep you there. The only thing that can keep you there is love."*
-Maharajji

"Q: I have been practicing japa and meditation for a long time, but there is not enough progress.

Amma: You should also love God. Without love no amount of japa and meditation will bear fruit. When your love for God becomes very strong, all the bad vasanas (mental tendencies) within you will automatically drop away. Rowing a boat against the current is difficult, but if there is a sail it becomes easy. Love for God is like a sail that helps the boat go forward.
When two lovers are sitting together, they won't like it when anyone comes near them. A real sadhak has the same attitude. He doesn't like anything that isn't related to God. Living with the thought of God always in his mind, he can't bear any obstacles that come between himself and God. Compared to his love for God, everything else is worthless to him.
Son, one should have true lakshya bodha (one-pointed focus on the goal). Only then can one's sadhana (spiritual practices) become deep. When someone sets out with a strong desire to reach a certain place, no obstacle can stop him. If he misses the bus, he will take a taxi. But if he lacks interest, he may decide to go home if he misses the bus, thinking he can try again the next day. Children, without intensity in sadhana it is difficult to reach the goal.
Before you sow the seed you have to prepare the land, clearing it of grass and weeds. Otherwise it is difficult for the seeds to sprout. In the same way, we can enjoy the bliss of the Self only if we clear the mind of all external things and direct it to God."
-Amma

This Ain't My First Rodeo
454

... you say to yourself as you face another day.  Think of everything, from your thoughts to challenging people, to the day's events and tasks like a bucking, mechanical bull turned to the 'expert af' setting,   Your work is to stay 'on'. To keep your balance. To not forget God, or as Hafiz calls It, the Friend.  No matter how wild the ride gets today, you feel the Friend's hand on your shoulder. You feel the Friend's kiss. 

How would you feel right now if the Friend leaned in and kissed you? Made It's Presence known. You'd be smiling. You'd be glowing. You wouldn't be worrying, or complaining, or distracted. You'd be full here. Fully now. Fully alive. Fully thankful. Fully ready for the rodeo.

Let's go!

I Love you!

Today's Quotes: 

"You've  been taught  to  practice  Presence.    I  ask  you  to  practice  the  Omnipresence.    The  presence  is everywhere  and  you  can  only  practice  it  everywhere.    You  cannot  practice  it  in  a  spot.    The moment  you  practice,  I  am  God  Here,  and  over  there  is  a  dictator,  over  there  is a congressman,  over  there  is  a  politician,  over  there  is  a  journalist;  but  here  am  I,  you're  not practicing  Omnipresence,  you're  practicing  self-glory,  self-indulgence,  self-righteousness;  and so  the  hardest  part  is  to  practice  the  every-where-ness  of  I.    And  that  includes  a  lot  of  places you'd rather not  see  I  in a  human mind.  And  so  you  rise  above  that  judgment  and  condemnation  and  limitation  and malpractice.  There  stands  I.    I  don't  care  what  form  or  shape  it  appears  in  human  sense,  there stands  I.    And  so  you  have  I  everywhere.    You're  opening  the  door  of  consciousness  to  I everywhere.    And  that's  why  justice  is  over  there  because  I  am  over  there.    That's  why  quality is  over  there,  because  I  am  over  there.   And  abundance  is  right  where  the  lack  is  because  I  am over there.   Always  you see  no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, because  all  there  is, is  I..."
-Herb Fitch, Mystical I Talk 1  

"All the money in the world is mine. Even the money in America."
-Maharajji 

"Now when God plays hide and seek and pretends that he is you and I, he does it so well that it takes him a long time to remember where and how he hid himself. But that's the whole fun of it - just what he wanted to do. He doesn't want to find himself too quickly, for that would spoil the game. That is why it is so difficult for you and me to find out that we are God in disguise, pretending not to be himself.
But when the game has gone on long enough, all of us will wake up, stop pretending, and remember that we are all one single Self - the God who is all that there is and who lives for ever and ever."

In the presence of God,
your freedom is,
your blessing is,

There are no ‘problems’,

To instantly feel the Breeze and Light of the solution.
And then to look out and watch whatever you thought was a ‘problem’ become a blessing,
a blessing bigger than you can imagine.

Close the Language Door & Open the Love Window

"There is some kiss we want with our whole lives,

the touch of Spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately it needs some wild darling!

At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come

and press its face against mine.

Breathe into me.

Close the language-door,

and open the love-window.

The moon won’t use  the door,

Today's Quotes:

“Love is the absence of separation. I don't love others. I am the others.  The sense of duality, which is a barrier to true love, must prevail so long as the apperception of truth has not occurred. Once individuality is surrendered, there is only total love.”
-Ramesh Balsekar (title quote)

There is no one who doesn't live in love. There are few who realize it.”

Happiness is only possible with true love."

"Hope, expectancy, and what the world calls faith—this all has to do with a future tense. God has no way of operating except now, a continuing now. “Now is the appointed time,” and this takes away from us the false sense of faith that God will meet our rent on the first of the month. 

It helps us to realize that God does not operate in the future, because that takes away from us the false sense of expectancy and the false sense of faith it gives us. “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” so omnipresent I is a continuing experience, but not one that begins tomorrow. If faith has anything to do with anything beyond this moment it is not faith at all. You may say that you will not have fruit on your fruit trees until next month; but I say to you—if the law is not operating in your trees now, there never will be fruit. It is only the operation of the nowness that brings fruit in its season. It is what is happening in the tree now that determines the fruit to be on the tree. So it is, that which is taking place in our consciousness now determines the fruitage in our bodies, in our pocketbook, in our family, in our life—next week, next month, next year. "
- Joel Goldsmith 'Consciousness Transformed' (pp. 114-116). Acropolis Books, Inc..

"This life is about finding a way to be in the world that connects you to your Soul."
-Ram Dass 

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, love, but the greatest of these is Love."
-1 Corinthians 13:13

"The present moment is the only moment available to us and it is the door to all moments."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Once you have God, you have everything you need. 
You no longer have 'needs'. 
You just 'have'. 
You just 'are'. 
Because God is where you are. 
And the first proof of God where you are,
is the Go(o)d feeling.
The Glow.
Love.   
Let It flow forth.

Today's Quotes:

Referenced Episode 235'Whenever you're not glowing today, catch your Self, and Glow'

"God has proven that when He is with me all the 'necessities of life" become unnecessary. In that consciousness you become more healthy than the average person, more joyous, more bountiful in every way. Don't seek little things; they will divert you from God. Start your experiment now: make life simple and be a king."
-Yogananda 

"To be able to realize that [God is your individual consciousness] enables you to sit back as comfortably, as joyously and confidently as a baby sitting on its mother’s lap...In this attitude and altitude you eventually hear your own consciousness saying to you, “I am your bread, I am your meat, I am your wine and your water. Fear not, I am with you. Be not afraid, it is I. I will never leave you.”
-Joel Goldsmith

“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
-John 6:35

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous."
-Isaiah 41:10

"As soon as you opened your mouth
And I heard your soft
Sounds,

I knew we would be
friends

The first time dear pilgrim,I heard
your laugh

I knew it would not take me long
To turn you back into
God."
- Hafiz via Daniel Ladinsky 

"(Upon meeting with Love) Even the beggar becomes a king, the lame persons are able to walk or even fly, the blind is able to see this universe, and many of the difficult writings of the destiny which are at the forehead of a person can be wiped out. Even the fundamental essence of a person or a personality or a being can be made to change." -Mukunda

Whenever you're not glowing today, catch your Self, and Glow
463

Right now, as you read these words, simply shift from not-glowing to Glowing. 
It may feel like someone turned on the Light, inside.
Like you're more alert, more present, more confident... activated. 

You owe it to your Self to be consistent in This.
You owe it to your Self to be disciplined about This.
You owe It to your Self to stay focused on This. *

This Glow is how the body feels when you're being your Self. 
It's the 'light of Your Grace'.
It's the only purpose.

Whenever you're not glowing today, catch your Self, and Glow.

I Love you,
Nik

Seeking the Silence behind your thoughts, today, and the Love behind your body, you arrive at your Self. 
When you seek the Eternal Day behind 'Monday', the Timelessness behind time, you arrive at your Self.
Nothing can touch you here.
No one can 'block' you here,

There's nothing but Love here,

This is What You Came For
467

You came for the Real not the fake. You came for the Kingdom, not the symbols of It.  While you are truly blessed by worldly success, you're more blessed and excited because you know (you are) the Source of it.

That's what keeps this Light on, here-- the Source of the miracles, the Source of the stuff, not the stuff. That's what gets me up every morning.  That's what inspires me to share each day. I'm grateful for the words that come, but the Silence they come from... I give all the praise, all the glory.  What will that Silence become in your life? Listen... and see :)  Watch what happens.

I Love you,

Negative Thoughts: How to Stop Them
464

A meditation to help you IMMEDIATELY surrender negative thoughts. It's useful not just during 'formal' meditation, but in every moment you find yourself fearful or worried.   You shift from being aware of being 'you', to being aware AS the Christ Light that you truly are.  You shift out of your mind, and into the mind that was in Christ.  Into the no-mind of the Buddha.  How does that mind sound?  Is it thinking about your troubles, your past, your future? Or is It silent... steady?  How does It feel?   

Stay (t)here.   

I Love you,
Nik

I did not reason out that I should be free, I found myself free, unexpectedly, without the least effort.  Spontaneity became a way of life, the real became natural and the natural became real.

Today's Quotes: 

"Recognizing that there is no person there that needs to be healed, will bring about the appearance of a healing."
-Joel Goldsmith 

"You see the flesh or recognize the spirit. 
There is no compromise between the two. If one is real the other must be false, for what is real denies its opposite. There is no choice in vision but this one. What you decide in this determines all you see and think is real and hold as true. On this one choice does all your world depend, for here have you established what you are, as flesh or spirit in your own belief. If you choose flesh, you never will escape the body as your own reality, for you have chosen that you want it so. But choose the spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more except to heal and comfort and to bless."
-A Course in Miracles, Lesson 31

“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.”
-Rumi

Nothing Real Can Be Threatened
568

This Peace we practice can't be threatened...
Can you find this Peace, inside?
It makes you smile with your whole being—
like your feet are smiling,
like your legs are smiling,
like your stomach is smiling,
like your heart is smiling,
like your hands are smiling,
like your cells are smiling.
Like you're smiling without smiling.
Like you're the True without the false.
Like you're the Peace beyond that body.
Like you're the Peace appearing AS that body. 
Just being Peace.
Just Peace.
Only Peace Is.

The End of Fear
610

You forget Love and experience fear on account of the body.  The body IS fear.  Fear is having a body-- thinking about it, shielding it, having a vested interest in its survival. Remembering Love, you don't ignore the body, you just feel and know Love where the body is seen, where it is experienced.  You experience the body as Love.  You know only Love is there and that ends your belief in the body (as separate from God), and its fear, and its world.   That’s the real meaning of ‘the end of the world.’ Only God is, and for now, it is appearing as that body reading this message.

In today's episode, in response to a listener's question, I summarize some of my favorite methods for "replacing fear with Love". Also check out this episode (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/go-o-d-mornings-with-curlynikki/id1570144628  ) for another, more tactile practice to instantaneously become aware of Love, even while fear is visiting.

Today's Quotes:

"Fear comes when there is a second."
-Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

"It's not happiness and peace that comes and goes. It's sickness, suffering and confusion that comes and goes.

Many people mistakenly think peace and happiness comes and goes. They have a brief experience of peace or joy and then they think' they lost it'.  Happiness and peace is your permanent nature. It never changes. It does not fade or 'go away'.  What 'goes away' is your attention on your true nature and when you do that, other things arise, like sickness, doubt, worry, fear, suffering, anger, overwhelm.

Quiet Mind = Fulfilled Desire
670

Listen for the place inside that feels like, ‘I have’, instead of ‘I want’, by:

1. Hearing the thought/desire
2. Immediately shifting to feeling Silent-Love

View every desire today as an alarm reminding you to BE Love, again.  Reminding you to RELAX, again.  To lower your shoulders, again. To smile, again.  In this way, each desire is immediately dissolved in Love— the formless essence of both the thought and material form.  Love is the formless essence of everything, including you, and when you’re aware as That, you lack nothing. You are already whole and when you’re conscious of It, you project a wholly and holy abundant world.

 As desire disappears, fulfillment appears. Be still in This. Trust. Smile.

I Love you!

Today's Quotes:

Episode mentioned- Love Is Your Preset

"Consciousness which is undivided imagines to itself desirable objects and runs after them.  
It is then known as the mind."
-The Yoga Vasistha 

"Mind is Consciousness in motion. Consciousness is mind at rest."
-Rupert Spira

"When the mind becomes still, the world begins to disappear (becomes unreal)."
-Robert Adams

"You're looking for beauty outside of yourself. You have to learn that you are the beauty. You are the joy. You are the flowers that you enjoy so much. You are the trees and the ocean and the sky and the mountains. It's all coming from you.  If you really realize that you are that, would you run around seeking things? Everything that you want is within you. You are that. Even relationships. You look for relationship with someone so they can make you happy, so you can enjoy their company, so you can love them, so you can be with them. But I can assure you that within yourself is a greater love, a greater joy, a greater peace than you can ever find anywhere else. True. You've got it all. There is nothing, no thing that you need from the outside. And nothing can ever happen to you, because there is no one to make it happen, except yourself."
-Robert Adams in a talk June 1991

"The soul is perfect; what can you improve? You have everything; what is there to gratify? Aum will seek out the man of contemplation; Reveal to him the wonder of great secrets."
–The Book of Ashes, Dadaji

“If you want to see God, kill desires. ... When you have a desire for something, don't act on it and it will go away. If you desire to drink this cup of tea, don't, and the desire for it will go away.”

694

"It is written on the gate of Heaven: Nothing in existence is more powerful than destiny.  And destiny brought you here, to this page, which is part of your ticket- as all things are- to return to God."
-Hafiz

1. Practice feeling the energy of your destiny in happiness.  It feels like Love .
2. Practice feeling the energy of your destiny in sadness.  It feels like Love.
3. Practice feeling the energy of your destiny in every step, in every breath, in every moment.  It feels like Love.
4. Look around at what Destiny built.  It feels like Love.

Thoughts change, emotions change, You don't.  Ceaseless-Love is your destiny.  It IS Destiny.  Feeling It is the path, being It is the destination.

Training Day: 'Looking at the Thorn and Seeing the Rose'
416

Today think of your life like one big obstacle course, like one big training field, where the Trainer, Love, is disguised as scary thoughts, needs, problems, and difficult people... It's disguised as your office, as everyone on your calls, today. God is disguised as your kids, as your partner, as your neighbor.  Can you keep the felt-Faith? Can you remember that it's all Go(o)d?  Can you feel and know Love, 24/7, no matter what? Even when what you want is not present? Can you feel Its Spiritual presence even in its material absence? 

When I was in my old life, wanting to live on the beach, I wasn't imagining the ocean.
I was listening for Silence and feeling Love, trusting that this Love would take shape in a way that would further reinforce my ability to practice this Love.
That It would become the environment that I most needed.
That It would become the people that I most needed to help me cultivate This,
to give me the strength and the focus to train even harder.   

Happy Training Day! Let's Go!

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Quotes:

“Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing. It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose, looking at the night and seeing the day. Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.”
-Shams Tabrizi

"Gradually we find ourselves in prayer while at work -- driving -- walking. Ultimately we achieve it even while conversing or while in a room where much talk goes on -- even while at the theatre and movies in the very midst of the performance. It all begins with practicing the listening ear. Learn to keep that right ear half cocked all the time. Never get so engrossed in what you are doing that you forget the listening ear. Do not be concerned with or about results. We have no more right to think about results than the beginner at the piano should be thinking of playing a concert. Constant receptivity to the Inner Self should be our aim. "
-Joel Goldsmith, Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture

"Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark."
-Rabindranath Tagore

"Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear."
-Isaiah 65:24

"This world is a camouflage, so what are you worried?"
-Maharajji

"The flute of the Infinite is played without ceasing, and its sound is Love."
-Kabir

"Only one whose heart is absorbed
In the ecstacy of Love all twenty four hours
Only he can be called a lover."

Let's Have an Out-of-Body Experience
669

The title is kind of a misnomer, because you aren't actually 'in' the body to begin with.  You're simply aware of the body... aware of the sense of having a body.  But what is it that's aware? What's aware of these words right now?  What's aware of the questions your mind is throwing out right now? This awareness is what you've been looking for, and It's actually what you're looking with.  This awareness is the way 'out' of ordinariness and into the extraordinary.   Let's open the door, together.

Whatever you need will just happen if you 'do' this...

Today we're staying focused on Exuberance until we see that there's not 'focus' AND 'exuberance'.  There's really only One.  Only Exuberance.  Only Exuberant-Focus. Silent, alert, attention... the feeling of staring without blinking, or listening for a very faint sound. This is your natural state and when you're being that, you feel Go(o)d, and then, "whatever you need will just happen."*

Your Entire Life is a Virtual Reality
454

Let's play a game where we pretend that you've had on a VR headset for DECADES and forgot, but today, you're remembering.  You're remembering what you are beyond this VR body and its senses, which are all, including your sense of smell, taste, and touch, even your thoughts and emotions, a part of the virtual reality.  The device you're reading this is on is VR. The little voice reading these words in your head... VR. The head itself... VR :)

Today, we'll feel into the space beyond the VR and be That.  We'll wake up from the belief in being that ‘Avatar’ to being what's beyond it.  And from that Loving space, aware of and AS the Formless, we’ll watch the form, your ‘Avatar’ live up to its true definition as 'the one who descends'. 

I Love you and I'm with you,

If I had waited on the big platforms and networks to green-light this show last year, to see it as a necessary idea, I'd still be waiting. If I had waited on the fear of launching alone, or the fear of failing, or the fear of feeling naked for sharing my Heart, or the fear of not feeling ready to subside before I could launch, I'd still be waiting.  I had to see the fear, feel the fear, and also, feel for Love.  And you have to do that, too!  Only the Love is real, and It's your North  Star.

This Love Meets Every Need
361

They say sometimes the worst place you can be is in your head.  In this short meditation, we get out of it, and into Love.  We put our troubles in a box and then put our Full Attention on Silence, noticing that this Full attention IS Silence!  This Full Attention is Presence.  It is Love.  And when we are being That, whatever trouble we placed in the box is solved. That it never was— only this Love is, and It meets every need. When we are feeling Love, aware of and AS  It, we are the solution. We are the miracle. And then, with Full Attention, we watch It unfold in time. 

I Love you,

God is Whole, God is Perfect, and God is You.
467

"One day Rumi arrives home.  He sees his son upset and asks the reason. His son replies 'nothing--' and upon his response, Rumi goes outside. He takes a wolf skin that's hanging on the door and puts it on.   He then raises his hands and starts howling, and when his son sees him, he begins to laugh. Rumi said, 'did you see son? This is how worldly trials are.  The wolf is a scary animal, but you didn't get scared when your father was behind it, and you laughed.  Just like that, know that your Lord is behind all your trials and trust Him.'"
-via @towardseternity via IG

Today, see every thought as Consciousness, as God, misperceived, unrecognized. See every thought like a wolf skin that's covering your awareness of God. 

Behind that fear of death, is the Love of God.

Behind that thought predicting that you're not going to get that promotion is the One that does the promoting. 

Behind that thought of 'you' is the real You, the Self, the 'I Am'.  Stay in touch with That,  feel That, and  watch your life change and become Light, Fun, Love.

More Quotes:

"Let us think of our mind as a door. Since God, Infinity, is omnipresent, the moment we open the door, this Infinity floods us, and we are under Grace... But we have a part to play: 'Lord I know you are knocking at the door of my consciousness, and I am opening my consciousness.  Take over my mind and body. Be my soul; be my life."
-Joel Goldsmith

"What is left when God is taken out of our consciousness? Fear, ignorance, superstition, desire. anxiety. concern, get, give me, help me, I, me, mine."
-Joel Goldsmith

"Treat everyone you meet like God in drag."

The Bridge to Better
502

What form does this inner Grace take?

First, It takes form as discernment. 

Then, It takes form as your best life.

It sounds like Silence... the Silence you’re noticing now, as you’re reading these words, and hearing them  inside. The sound of these words, your inner voice, can’t drown out the sound of Silence.

It feels like Love... the Love you feel as you smile now,  not just with your face, but with your Heart, your whole Being.

It’s felt-presence is the bridge from who you think you are, to what you came here to be. It’s the bridge to better living, true happiness, real abundance… it’s the bridge back to your Self.

"The purpose of meditation is to attain Divine Grace. Once this Grace has been attained in a measure, It takes over our experience and lives our lives, performs those things which are given us to do, and makes the crooked places straight.  We no longer live by bread alone, but by this inner Grace."
-Joel Goldsmith

"Once, M and Maharaji were traveling by horse-drawn carriage, M asked Maharaji about the wandering mind during meditation: “It won’t stand on one point; but many ideas come in. What do I do?” Then suddenly a small child ran across the road and the driver pulled the reins to stop the horse just in time to save the child. Maharaji said, “Like that,” pointing to the driver holding the reins. “As the mind will travel here, there, and all directions, you should always try to pull it to one point. You should center it with continuous practice, then automatically it will go to the one point on which you want to meditate. Ultimately, after years, the mind becomes quiet.”
-Excerpt from Miracle of Love: Stories about Neem Karoli Baba, compiled by Ram Dass

"Let go of your next thought.
Let go of your next thought.
Let go of your next thought.
Show me your suffering, now."

The Foundation for All Abundance
649

"Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance."
-Eckhart Tolle

Ceaselessly acknowledging God by feeling Love, and knowing this Love as the source of 'the good that is already in your life', is the foundation for all abundance. 

Today we practice remembering that this feeling of God, our Joy is the foreground of our experience, not the background.  We eat joyfully, drive joyfully, breathe in Joy, walk in Joy... we do everything we normally do on a Sunday morning, but with conscious Joy.  We do all of it as if we  are existing  and moving in and through a Joy bubble... feeling this same Joy within and without.  The more we remember to feel this all-pervasive Joy, the more our life changes. The instant you feel Joy is the instant the changes begin.

“Whoever works for God, his work will be done by itself.”
-Neem Karoli Baba aka  Maharajji 

"For one who sees Me everywhere, and everything in Me; I am never lost to Him, and he is never lost to Me."
-Sri Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)   

"Wherever you concentrate, and on whatever centre, there must be a you to concentrate, and that is what you must concentrate on."
-Ramana Maharshi

"A fully Krishna (God) Conscious person, although situated in this material world, does not see anything but Krishna."
-Unknown
*Krishna is the God of Love in Hinduism

"I Am so often not recognized. Life is a thing so taken for granted. Blessed art thou that thou dost love, recognize, and adore the Power indwelling.  For I blend with your body, I thrill through your veins, I think through your mind, and love through your heart center, even as I am the One who thrills through every other being of My creation...
This is your lesson for the day. Bow before Me in all whom you contact and you shall see miracles spring from the very dirt beneath your feet."
-Eva Bell Werber,  Voice of the Master

My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God
387

Assume, just for today, that the sound of your heart beating is the presence of God with you. 
That every time you stop,  listen, and feel for the heart beating, you know that God is (t)here. 
You know that God is in the silence of the listening.  
You know that God is beating that heart. 
You know that God is that heart. 
You know that God is both being ‘you’, and beyond ‘you’. 
And because you know This, because you feel This, 
your new chapter begins. 

My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God
"Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love.  It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength.  I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving Arms. Each heartbeat calls His Name, and every one is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him.
Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. Father, my heart is beating in the Peace the Heart of Love created.  It is there and only there that I can be at home.'  - Lesson 267

"In proportion as you are listening (to Silence), you are consciously aware of the presence of God, the power. the reality, the joy, the Spirit, the life, and the wisdom of God... Recognizing your Self as Consciousness, and adopting the listening ear, the attitude of consciousness, you become the child of God that is joint-heir to all the heavenly riches."

Affirm: I Am fed from within
491

Let's take a moment to feel the truth of our existence, the source of our sustenance,  the peace of the One that is meditating in us.  He chants in me.  She's the Silence in you.  It's the Love we are, and It feeds us. 

"I am fed from within.  Don’t change your outer way of living but inwardly know where and what Source is.  Break this attachment to the outer world.  Break the belief that you’re dependent on man for justice, or for loans, or for forgiveness, or for your support.  It takes a while to break your attachment to the outer world,  but you can do it if you can remember the word, 'Now'.

Now, am I and my Father one.  Now, do I draw upon the Kingdom of God within me.  Now, do I seek living waters within myself, the bread of life, the staff of life within myself.  No longer do I seek from 'man whose breath is in his nostrils', but now I know my attunement is the secret of the spiritual life.  Turning within a hundred times a day just for a momentary remembrance, 'thank you Father, the Kingdom is within me', 100 times a day.  Just smiling at the remembrance that now you are one with the infinite, the entire infinite is flowing forth into your experience."
-Joel Goldsmith 

"To go within means to come out of thinking. And when you come out of thought, you are within.  When you find the moment of rest from thought, you are in Consciousness.

The instant that you recognize the Unseen, you are free.
735

Today we give our attention to the Unseen, the Unchanging, the Invisible, Indivisible, Silent- Love that we are.  Learning to recognize and identify as This during our quiet moments together, we'll never lose our Self in the world, again.  We practice hearing the Unseen using mantra, and seeing and feeling It using the Headless Way Method.  

"The instant that you recognize the Unchanging, you are free."
-Mooji

"My daughter, there is a great realm, the realm of the unseen, where you shall more and more function. There you shall find your strength, your fullness of life, your work. This does not mean that you shall not also function on the side of the visible, but that first everything shall take place for you on that other, unseen, side. Your actions shall be directed from this unseen side. Such beauties, such love, such utter sweetness shall then fill your days that you will feel transported to a heavenly glory even while performing the humblest tasks. This realm is only found by the practicing of My Presence, and day by day, it shall grow more and more accessible to you."
-Eva Bell Werber, Quiet Talks with the Master

"Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent." 
- Rumi

"Wisdom presents itself to us during periods of silence, in the forms of ideas, insights, and clarity.  If you constantly avoid silence by looking at your phone, watching TV, and listening to music, you miss out on receiving the profound wisdom that could change your life."
-Hal Elrod 

"Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it.  Whoever has polished it more sees more-- more unseen forms become manifest to him." 
-Rumi 

"The eyes of a saint are always concentrated on the supreme self. The minute he is aware of himself, sainthood is lost." 
-Maharajji 

Spoiler Alert:The seen and the unseen are actually ONE. Only Love is here, manifest and un-manifest.

How to Hear God's Voice Over the Noise
435

Knowing the Truth where we see the false, hearing the Silence over the noise, feeling Love even while fear is felt... this is how we practice being our true Self. This is the 'healing consciousness' that unfolds as the Go(o)d life. 

"A spiritual healer is not a person who develops a technique of using truth to overcome error or of using treatment to overcome disease.  A spiritual healer is that state of consciousness which knows that God alone is the reality of all being, and that anything else is a state of hypnosis.  The recognition that he is dealing with a state of hypnosis, rather than with a person, place; or with a condition, is the healing consciousness.”
-Joel Goldsmith 

"Sickness is not cured by saying 'medicine', but by drinking it."
-Adi Shankara 

"The witness is both unreal and real.  The last remnant of the illusion, the first touch of the real.  To say: 'I  am only the witness' is both false and true, false because of the 'I am', true because of the witness.  It is better to say: 'there is witnessing'.  The moment you say, 'I am', the entire universe comes into being along with its creator."
-Nisargadatta Maharaj

Feeling Your Way to Heaven on Earth
681

"What is heaven? A silent and empty mind." -Mooji

"Good, God, Love are all the same thing. If the person keeps continuously thinking of any one of these, it will be enough."
-Ramana Maharshi

"Whatever happens to you has been waiting to happen since the beginning of time."
-Marcus Aruelius

"We seek to reach the goal with the ego, but the goal exists before the ego."
-Ramana Maharshi 

Your truest desire exists before you existed. You didn’t come up with It! And It’s not something that’s lacking, but something that Is!

Unfortunately, the way the ego is set up, you took the immanent nature of It, the promise of It, the already-hereness of It, and misinterpreted It as lack. You misperceive your abundance of Love as a lack of Love. Well, you did... but now you know!

So, if ego didn’t make the goal, and can’t reach the goal, how do you get to the goal? It’s the same as if you’re in Clearwater Beach, FL, and you want to go to Clearwater Beach, FL, what do you have to do? How can you get there? When you’re in Clearwater Beach, FL what do you need to do in order to be in Clearwater Beach, FL?

BE.

The fulfillment of the goal is here now, you have to just notice that. This Love is here now, we just have to feel It. We release tension and allow It, until we finally recognize we are It. And then It defines Itself.  

With you in and AS It,
Nik

How to Stop Thinking
457

You don't have to stop thinking.  You just have to feel Love. The thoughts dissolve in That.  And then the ones that come from That, are not only transparent (easy to see as thoughts) but supportive, productive, and impactful.  

Attachment to this felt-Love, keeping your attention on It... with It, is the effortless and simultaneous detachment from your limiting beliefs about this world. And when beliefs are dropped, in that space, a new world is experienced.  #ThyKingdomCome

“I have been asked many times, "How do you stop thinking?" And I have found one way. The minute I can look at any person or condition and know that it is neither good nor evil, my thought stops, and my mind becomes quiet. That is the end of it because then there are no thoughts left for me to think about it: I do not think good of it and I do not think evil of it. All I know is that it is, and then I am back at the center of my being where all power is. Our mind is restless only when we are thinking about things or persons, either in terms of good or evil, but the mind is at rest when we surrender all such concepts.”
-Joel Goldsmith

"This world is all attachment.  Yet you get worried because you are attached."
-Neem Karoli Baba 

"To observe Silence means to keep the mind fixed on Him."
-Anandamayi Ma

"You can't heal a man because man is what God is appearing as.  Feel Christ sitting in center of every one.  The practitioner's only duty is to feel a living Presence."

Your Story is About to Change.
550

In this moment you are deeply thankful to be able to be Love while things are rearranging,  
knowing that wherever you appear to be right now, is where you need to be. That you couldn't be anywhere else.  That your blessings are unfolding.  That the miracle is here.  That the miracle can be felt before It can be seen, but that It must be felt consistently, before It can be seen... before the scene can change. 

"You can't stop the mind from thinking because you didn't start it thinking."
-Adyashanti 

"Don't identity any thought as negative because it's just a thought. Who told you it's negative? It's just a thought. What's the problem? If you understand it's just a thought, it has no power. If you think it's a reality, then it destroys you."
-Sadhguru 

Note: Feeling the Loving Silence even when thoughts are present. 

"Even the feeling of the absence of God is His manifestation-- so that His Presence may be realized."

There's Peace in the Valley, Too.
481

God isn't just on the mountaintop, He's in the valley, too, and everywhere in between, and beyond.  God's Love, It's Peace, your innermost Self, can be felt even when you're in the valley of sadness. It can be felt on the pathless-path up the mountain, and once you reach the summit, you'll find that there isn't a 'you' feeling this Love, there's only Love. Only God.  And in and AS That, you abide.  

"Shiva lives on the mountain top of awareness. This world is in the valley.  Many old souls have been trying to climb this mountain in reverse gear.  Even if they climb and reach near Shiva, they roll back down to the valley because of their attachments.  Climbing this mountain is not as important as changing the orientation: Turn your back to the valley and face toward Shiva."
- @ImmortalTalks on IG

Shiva is your innermost Self and the alert snake, with its raised hood around His neck represents PEAK Loving Awareness, Shakti, Go(o)d Energy on TEN!  As you read these words feel your back straightening, your shoulders relaxing down and back, your face smiling, your energy rising, Love peaking.  There! There you are!  Stay (t)here.  This is Go(o)d Energy and when you're practicing feeling and being This, This is all you see. You see that there is no valley or mountaintop, there's only the Kingdom. Only Love is here.

The Only Realization Needed: 'Thank you, Father, I Already Am.'

Today, every time you notice a thought about something desired, something missing... something needed, inwardly repeat- 'thank you Father, I already Am.' And then feel the shoulders relax, the face smile, the whole being relax, and melt. This 'pulls the chair out from beneath the mind' and you fall into Loving Remembrance, Joyful Realization.  You already, always have been That.  Keep feeling It, and you'll see It.

"The object of our love is Love Itself."
-Ram Dass 

"The greatest work there is for you to do, My Beloved, is to do nothing. Only let the Glory of God shine through the human vessel. Learn to let the spirit flow through all you do and say. Why need you be tense, or eager, or anxious as to how you can serve? Why should you ever watch for opportunity to serve Me? If you will relax, at all times, if you will dwell in the Center of your being, and rest in the consciousness of the Divine Presence you shall make no false moves nor mistakes. How sweet should be this thought to you, that you need take no active part aside from the still knowing that your Father has control over all situations and where ever you are at this moment, and where you shall go and what you shall do through the day is all controlled by the Father under the law of Divine love. So rest, relax, be very still, that you may have the surety of this guidance through all the hours of the day before you."

“Evil may so shape events that Caesar will occupy a palace and Christ a cross, but one day that same Christ will rise up and split history into A.D. and B.C., so that even the life of Caesar must be dated by his name.”

That day is HERE. That time is NOW.
We are HERE NOW.
We are NOW HERE.
We are NOWHERE. 
We are LOVE. 
Only LOVE is.  

Today, I  answer a listener's question about finding Love in impossible moments, and shared the importance of ‘freezing and melting’, or being still and knowing 'only Love is here'... and trusting that It's carrying you into Its Light, into Its Shelter, into Its Government and Divine Grace.  God's got you. 

Today's Practice:
1. Freeze... eyes wide open, not blinking, and notice the silence (inner and outer) 
2. Melt... relax your shoulders, your stomach, your jaw, your belief in thoughts, your belief in appearances, your belief in the problem. There are no problems in the Kingdom.  
3. Hear inside, 'I got this" (The "I " of you, the "I " in the midst of you is "going before you to make the crooked places straight" (Isaiah 45:2) "It's the meat, the water, and the wine that the world knows not of" (John 4:32) ), and abide in That assurance.

When God Picks You
816

What to Expect: The Enlightenment Edition

"When the universe picks you, and you put on the magic glasses there's rules that go with them. You can never take them off... you never see things as they're supposed to be, you see things as they are."
-Dick Gregory 

"When I shut my eyes, I still see it (light) shimmering and shining, softer than soft, more tender than tender, finer than fine.  When the eyes are open, I see the blue rays all around.  Whenever I see anyone, I see first the blue light and then the person.  Whenever I see any thing, I see first the beautiful, subtle rays of Consciousness and then the thing itself.  Wherever my mind happens to turn, I see the world in the midst of this shining mass of Light. The way I see things, whether large or small, demonstrates the truth of the verses of Tukaram, which I have quoted before: "My eyes have been bathed with the lotion of the blue light, and I have been granted divine vision."
-Muktananda, Play of Consciousness             

"When you continually meditate on Divine Mother, you start to see her in everything. You see her in everybody, and people – their faces, bodies, colors and features – simply disappear. The first thing that comes in front of you is the form of Devi.  The first layer is Devi, Goddess, Energy, Divinity, whatever name you want to give, and the second layer is light. I see everybody as a light. Then the light disappears, and the third layer that I see is the actual human body. It wasn’t like this before; it’s not that it has been like this since I was born. This experience came about after my intense sadhana in the Himalayas. And the presence of the divine energy of Mother Divine is so real in my life that I really hope by the time you finish this book, that you would walk away with enough inspiration, as well as learning, to manifest the same in your life."
-Om Swami, from The Hidden Power of Gayatri Mantra: How to Realize Your Full Potential Through Daily Practice

Remember--
WHEN God picks you, don't get so lost in your worldly work and success that you forget Him, your innermost Self.  Stay aware of this felt-Love (in and AS the background), while enjoying the world (appearing as the foreground)!  Be "in the world but not of it". Write to me and tell me of your enlightening experiences!

There's a place inside (and out) that's already surrendering, no matter the position the body is in.

There's a place inside (and out) that's already Silent-Love, no matter the state the mind is in. 

Be That, today and always. 

"The silence is another way of saying to keep your mind stayed on God all the time.  God is the silence and you are that.  Feel the silence right now.  You can feel it.  It's a thing of beauty.  You know when you're getting into the true silence, you begin to become happier, and happier, and happier for no reason.  It makes no difference what's going on in the world.  The world is in one place and you're in another place.  In the deep silence you are identifying with the substratum of creation.  Always remember to go into the silence.  A sage is always in the silence.  A sage may be talking, listening, partaking of activities, but to the sage there's only silence."
-Robert Adams

"I have never known Truth to fail, never known any 'problem' that didn't vanish, once I was wholly honest with Omnipresent Awareness.  Do not just declare words, as if reciting a formula, but absolutely admit Love is pure, single, unadulterated-- thus unchallenged, unopposed Authority."
-Aiken

"To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders."
-Lao Tzu

"Whatever happens, hold onto God's feet without loosening the grip even slightly."
-Amma

“The only thing that we ever drop is a concept of body.  And as we stepped out of our infant body and our youth body into maturity, so we step out of a mortal sense of body into the spiritual demonstration and realization of body.  And that we can do, and do do here on this plane.  It is not necessary to die or make a transition to experience it.  We have experienced it here and now.  The Master says, “I can lay down my life, I can pick up my life.”[3]  And I will tell you that there are others who can step in or out of the mortal concept of body and life at will, here and now.  And it all comes about through attaining the revelation or realization within of true being.”
-Joel Goldsmith

Every Day is 1/11

"The key is to be in a state of permanent connectedness with your inner body, to feel it at all times, this will rapidly deepen and transform your life."
-Eckhart Tolle

"The moment you are in touch with your breath, the universe pours into you."
-netz.der.indra

"All your problems arise because you don't stand firm within your Self."
-Amma 

Today's Practice:
Every time you look down at your phone for a sign, look within and feel for the REAL sign.  When you're turned toward and feeling Love in and AS that body, you stop looking around and waiting for permission (like 1/11) to be your best self.  You stop looking for signs of success and you start watching that body step into and celebrate It.  You start watching this Love unfold as the Go(o)d Life. 

I Love you,

Affirm: I will not react to appearances today, I will see through them.
768

My life depends on me being Love, because when I'm being Love, I can see through appearances, and when I can see through appearances, they change.  

This is how you see yourself out of any situation you have outgrown.  Not through resistance. When the resistance comes up, immediately see through it, too!  See through every thought, through every emotion, through every person, place, and thing, to the REAL.  And let the REAL manifest and define Itself.  

Note: The REAL feels like the feeling of Love in and as that body.  And you can sense It even when the body is discordant. 

I Love you and I'm with you!

Quotes: 

"The two worse feelings in the world  are not having a job and having a job."
-Unknown via IG

" In wealth is the fear of poverty, in knowledge the fear of ignorance, in beauty the fear of age, in fame the fear of backbiters, in success the fear of jealousy, even in body is the fear of death. Everything in this earth is fraught with fear. He alone is fearless who has given up everything."
-Swami Vivekananda

"Do not try to control matter.  Know it does not exist. You control it by knowing it does not exist."

‘Home’ and ‘You’ Are the Same Thing

“Rumi says, ‘The one who brought me here must take me home.’ Who is the one who brought you here? That Grace is calling you home. Where is home, which direction is home? You and home are the same thing.”
-Mooji 

"It is foolish to think that we will enter heaven without entering into ourselves."
-St. Teresa of Avila

Today's Practice:
Every time you find that place inside that is forever still, you are Home. You are in Heaven.  You can turn any moment into heaven by, 'going into your heart cave' as Ram Dass would say.  Go into your heart cave before you go into your office tomorrow.  Don't leave your heart cave.  Realize you ARE the heart cave, itself.  

“Your homework is to stay home inside your heart.”

Nothing Will Interfere With God’s Plan for Your Life- "Don't Lose Sight"
497

"Just as a lamp in a windless place does not flicker, so the disciplined mind of a yogi remains steady in meditation on the Self."
-Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6:19

Self = God = Loving Awareness = What you truly are 

"As the golden flame of the candle burns steadily, without flicker or wavering, so shall My Flame burn ever more in your heart. It shall burn out all dross of the mortal mind, smallness of nature, meanness of spirit, vindictiveness, jealousy. It shall burn out all carelessness of your habits, in the outer realms of your being. My Law and My Order can then function perfectly in your life. Then and then only will you be a worthy vessel for the inflow of My Spirit. Then and then only can My Spirit flow through you to other of My children. Likewise shall all disease be burned from the physical body, that nothing shall interfere with My Plan for your life. As the sigh of your spirit disturbs the flame and makes the candle drip, so the faintest wavering of your feet from the path of attainment causes a less steady burning of My Flame in your heart, and My Work goes on in imperfection. Oh, My Beloved, how necessary that you live with the eye single, to the high purpose of your calling. But you have many helpers. No soul who enters the path is left to walk alone. So go on, day by day, with the light and assurance of My Love in your face. Mighty Ones whom you see not, are by your side. And the forces of darkness shall touch you not."
-Eva Bell Werber, ‘Quiet Talks the Master

"Dear God, help me to not lose sight of your presence when things are going well."
-Unknown

"Grace has the ability to change anything at any time."
-Ravi Shankar

Breathe and go with the flow of Grace. Even if you can't see it yet, everything is new. For now, just feel the Newness, even if you can only feel 5% of It.  Trust that It's carving out a niche for you. A holy space for you to continue to grow and begin to thrive in.  
Don't stop... you're (t)here. Just keep pausing and becoming still enough to notice the presence of God all around you.  God is here, smile.  Radiate Him.

"By reciting His name, everything is achieved. EVERYTHING." | Mantra 101

"We should always be confident that this chanting is not a vibration of this material world.  It is imported from the spiritual world.  It is completely spiritual."
- Narottama dasa Thakura

"Only God's name is real."
-Larry Brilliant
 
"It's all illusion except the name of the Lord."
-The Ramayana
 
"Rams' form left this world, Krishna's form left this world, but the Name stays.  By reciting His Name, everything is achieved. Everything is achieved." 
-Maharajji (Maharajji constantly chanted Ram all of his waking hours)

"Kalau nasty eva nasty eva na-sty eva gatir anyatha", or, "in this age, there is no other alternative, no other alternative, no other alternative than to chant the holy name of the Lord (Hare Krishna)." - Caitanya Mahaprabhu via Srila Prabhupada

"National duties, social duties, and humanitarian duties are obligatory only to those who are bereft of spiritual duties.  As soon as man takes his birth on earth, he has all these obligations to the great sages that left behind vast treasure houses of knowledge to guide him through life, to forefathers, family members, the government, and so forth and so on.  But as soon as one engages himself in the one single obligatory duty- the duty of spiritual perfection- then he automatically liquidates all other obligations without having to make separate efforts."

Can you change how things turn out by changing how you feel?
682

Today's Quotes:

"God
Disguised
As a myriad of things and
Playing a game
Of tag

Has kissed you and said,
"You're it---

I mean, you're Really IT!"

No
It does not matter
What you believe or feel

For something wonderful,

Major-league Wonderful
Is someday going
To
Happen. "
- Daniel Ladinsky, from 'You're It' in "The Gift, Poems by Hafiz"     

"I became conscious of being (feeling) it. 
I am still conscious of being it.
And I shall continue to be conscious of being it until that which I am conscious of being is perfectly expressed. "
-Neville Goddard

"By changing the way you feel you can change the way things turn out."
-Abraham Hicks

"Actually the only freedom you have is not to react to conditions and to turn within, to see the truth. Everything else is preordained. Whatever appears in your life is destined to be.  It is your reaction to what appears that matters to you, what's going to happen to you next." 
-Robert Adams

"The secret is to allow the world to show you what it will, and for you not to react to anything."
-Robert Adams

Today's Practice:
Every time you  see something disturbing today (a headline, an email, an annoying someone), or feel some inner upset, pause and remember, 'I'm It'.  You've been tagged.  You've been chosen to remember that things aren't as they appear.  You become the witness of the inner or outer disturbance AND witness to the Love that's also present.  Feel Love in that body while the disturbance appears to be (t)here.  This is the first and last step.  

Witness as Love smiles that face, relaxes that body, and stirs up Peace and calm-confidence.  This is what 'It' feels like.  When  you're feeling It, you're being It, and soon you'll be seeing the fruits of 'It' in and as the world.

Transform Your Life By Opening Your Heart With This Powerful Mantra
884

 Let's chant together --  "Aditya Hridyam Punyam Sarv Shatru Bena Shenam"

This Sanskrit mantra is from the Ramayana and it means, "All evil vanishes from those who keep the sun in their heart." I've shared it before in passing.  

In this case, 'evil' means something that distracts you from or makes you feel separate from Love.  This could be anything from thoughts, or your job, to an unhealthy relationship, or bad habits, etc.  And trust that whenever something falls away, something that is Go(o)d,  something that is of this Love, something in alignment with all that you are, falls in its place!  

While chanting (reading along with) the Sanskrit words, FEEL your intention to serve God... to be an instrument of Love.  Hold your heart, or namaskar, or sway... feel that as you speak the words you are in the presence of God. Would your mind wander into the past or future if you were sitting in the presence of God? Right.  Stay where your feet appear to be and chant this mantra while radiating Love, while feeling Him, while feeling your new life. 

I Love you,
Nik

How to Activate a Miracle - #HardReset
569

How to activate a miracle? Activate felt-Love by being the witness.  

Yesterday I flew out in the morning from Florida to Missouri to pick up the kiddos, with the intention of flying back to Florida on the same day.   I left at 8am and we were back by 10pm-- no delays, Go(o)d music, Go(o)d books, and cat naps all the way!  In the face of every seeming hiccup, I'd: 
 
1.  Notice it. 
2.  Close my eyes for a second and listen for the Silence. (#HardReset).
3. Notice what's noticing the Silence and the hiccup. 
4. Abide (t)here as the Loving-Still-Witness.
5. Remember that the hiccups only come to keep me aware as Love.  Hiccups are Grace, too.

We are home safe and I didn't even miss a recording for you!   

Keep hard resetting.  Love works.

I Love you,
Nik

Today's Reading--

"Be Still! Not as any stillness you have ever known before. The stillness which lies at the bottom of the ocean, eternally quiet, yet eternally vibrant and alive with infinite activity. Only by attaining this super-stillness can the full realization of former talks be attained. You must learn to keep this stillness, to retreat into it at any moment, whenever any confusion arises in your physical or mental world. Thus shall all difficulties solve themselves by My Power working through you. Learn to BE STILL instantly and watch God's Power work! In this potent stillness are all demonstrations made."

When I Remember God, God Takes Care of Everything
436

Repeat, feelingly:  
"I know all the power I need to live a successful life is within me.
I relax my entire body.
I cast all burdens on the Christ. (aka Love, Source, God, etc)
I go free.
I claim and feel the Peace of God flooding my mind, heart, and whole being.
I know the quiet mind gets its problems solved.
I am at Peace."

The Hollow Bamboo Game  by Ram Dass

A quiet mind is all you need.  All else will happen rightly once your mind is quiet."

2. Become aware of the emptiness, the space and silence within you-- hollow bamboos don't think. 
3. Notice the fullness of Love in the emptiness. 
4. Know this Love as God. As your true Self.  As the solution to every problem.

One Step to Your Best Year Yet

"Your outer journey may contain a million steps; your inner journey only has one: the step you are taking right now."
-Eckhart Tolle

The Only Step: FEEL LOVE. 

In feeling Love you automatically forgive, you naturally let go, you heal... you HAVE.   Love holds onto nothing but Love. Love carries nothing but Love.  Where Love is consciously, only Love manifests.  Remember this Love.  Feel this Love. Be this Love. Everything  that you think you want and need in 2022 is here, now.  It's now, here... just like your breath is, just like you are, just like God is.  Happy Now Here's Eve.

Today's Quotes:

"I live and move in and by the Holy Spirit.
I have Christ mind and vision.
I see God in everyone and everything, because I feel It in myself.
I am the child of a rich Father and I have come Home.
I let God live my life. "

"You have to want God the way a drowning man wants air." 
-Bhagavan Das 

"The Saint who is in this State, sees both the reality and the unreality, but he only accepts the reality."  
- Ramayana 

"Rather than seeing all the different forms of jewelry, see only gold." 
The Yoga Vasistha 

"Read a little,
meditate more,
think of God all the time."
-Yogananada 

Today's Goals and Practice:
1. Start with Love
2. Stay with Love 
3. End with Love

Read about Love, sing to Love, sit with Love, walk through Love, breathe in Love, meet only Love, be Love.  

When anxiety or any inner disturbance comes that seemingly distracts you from the truth of this Love, you (1) acknowledge it, (2) feel it, and (3) find Love in it.  You feel the disturbance at the same time as you feel the Love (see the Ramayana quote above).  You keep returning to Love like it's the only thing that matters, and It's the only thing that will.

'How do you do it? Be sad and still feel Love?'
511

(Some language ❤️)

Listener question via IG DMs-

"I listened to your podcast this morning (as I always do) and I can't find it... the love that is supposed to be there and wash over me.  All I feel is sadness, to the point where my heart aches all day and I want to curl up on my bed and just disappear.  I could just give up but there is a strand of something that keeps me here.  I keep writing, I keep listening.  How do you do it? Be sad and still feel love?" 

My written response- 

"I asked a similar question to Krishna Das while on retreat.  I was like, Love is here, BUT, so is my shit lol.  
He said, "it's not your shit." 
<insert mind blown emoji>
It's not your sadness. 
It's just sadness, 
rolling through awareness.
Rolling through Love.
Hold fast to Love.
This is the work. 
It's healing everything. 
Thank you for journeying with me."

They replied-

"Oh man!!! That really resonates with me Nikki."

In this episode I shared a few of my favorite permission slips (that I've shared in previous shows), like my 'greatest hits', lol... the practices I return to again and again when sadness comes to visit.  

Today's Quotes:

In English we say, "I  am sad", but in Spanish it translates as, "I have sadness", and in the Tibetan language it translates as, "sadness is here".  Can you feel the difference?"

Affirm: I Am Now in the Presence of God
533

 As Rumi said, "close your eyes, fall in Love, stay there", and get into this meditation on the presence of God.   When you remember Him, He comes. When you remember Love, only Love is (t)here.   

“I am within My world, yet am I not known. I am My world, yet must I stand silently by, while man, who was created to manifest Me, thinks that he himself is that which works and plays, loves, hates and carries on life.  Man takes unto himself that which I created for My pleasure, that which was to radiate beauty and joy, and makes of it an instrument to destroy; makes of it war, hate and ugliness. Where there is only one who sees Me behind the veil of mortal thinking and circumstance, that one who sees becomes as a chemical, purifying the very air he breathes.

You are blessed when you thus see and recognize Me. Every cell of your body shall be filled with light. All your contacts in the world about you shall be brought into peace and harmony. This is the only way that peace shall ever rule the world. This is the only way I shall ever bring forth My beauty and love to bless My creation. All that you do in any sense to reveal Me is bringing forth the inner light to lighten darkened places, is bringing the kingdom of heaven nearer at hand. Feel not that you do not work for Me. Only know Me, see Me, feel Me, and you shall give forth a power to all whom you contact and they shall be blessed because you passed their way.”
-Eva Bell Werber's Essay, "The Way of Peace" in Voice of the Master

Stress Is Only Fear
661

"I realize that stress is only fear.
I release all fear.
I am at peace.
I am safe and secure.
Freedom from stress is my divine right.
I let go of all tension.
I use my breath to relax.
I breathe deeply and peacefully.
I feel my muscles relax.
I flow with life easily and effortlessly.
All is well in my world."
-Joan Borysenko 

"When we have awareness of the silent side, abundance is increased in the active side." 
-Joel Goldsmith 

"If we take into our meditation the question, "what is God?" ultimately we shall be led to the secret of prayer, and when we have achieved correct prayer, meditation, or communion, we shall be led to a God-experience, which is a 'peace, be still' to any form of error that may ever touch us.  As a matter of fact, continuing in the God-experience will prevent about ninety-odd percent of the world's troubles ever touching us, and the little that may touch us will be quickly resolved."
-Joel Goldsmith 

Bonus Quotes:
"Your only focus is to be aware of Eufeeling.  Let me repeat that: Your only focus is to be aware of Eufeeling (Love/ the 'I Am'). 
-Frank Kinslow

Today's Practice: 
Every time you notice stressful thoughts about next week, or returning back to the office, use it as an alarm, a trigger to remember Love.  See these thoughts as Grace, natural built-in alerts to remind you to turn back toward Truth... back toward the Silence the thoughts came out of and will promptly return to.  You can either--

1. Go straight to the Silent-Love by feeling It in your feet, in your heart, or throughout and AS your Being.
or 
2. Go to a mantra like, Borysenko's, "I realize that stress is only fear. I release it and choose Peace".  You'll be so full of those words that there won't be any room for stress-inducing thoughts.  You'll be so full of Love, that there won't be any room for fear. 

Do what works. Be what works.  This Love works. It heals. It relieves you of the fear we call stress. It relieves you of the stress you call 'you'.  

I Love you,

Make Me An Instrument
687

"Transform me Lord, so that when people see me, they see you." 
-@HerTrueWorth via IG

St. Francis' Peace Prayer-
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offense, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Master, let me not seek as much
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love,
for it is in giving that one receives,
it is in self-forgetting that one finds,
it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,
it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.

"Francis, I know there is only one reason to be truly excited and this is when our Lord visits us in our hearts. But regarding Earthly news, I must tell you while many worry about wars and lack of food in the coming winter, my sisters are singing and bathing daily in the light within their hearts. I too had a dream. Someday Kings and Queens, the rich and powerful, people from all over the world, will be coming to Assisi not to judge you but to ask how they can join you on your path. What will you tell them? Will you ask them to throw their riches into the river? Will you tell them to give all their power away? Francis, are you ready for the world to be at your feet like the little birds in your garden? Imagine everyone with one prayer, one heart, asking “Lord make me an instrument!” 

Peace, Francis, peace—this is what you should teach! Let them keep their possessions. Let them keep their worldly power. Share with them the simple peace. This is enough. Tell them about the beauty of peace in every moment. Give them the simple steps that you and I know so well. Step by step, peace and more peace with everyone and everything. This will be a good beginning. Once they feel the peace, what do riches and power have to offer? Why would they chase after earthly comforts when they have life’s true treasure? Once they feel the peace inside what else is of value but wanting to serve one another? 

Everyone wants peace, Francis, but they do not know the source of this peace. You must teach them. Real peace comes only from a peaceful heart! And a peaceful heart comes from finding so much God inside that there is no room for anything else but peace."

-Davis, Bruce. The Love Letters of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi: The Journey of Two Great Saints, Soaked in Love, Who Changed The World (p. 6). Kindle Edition.

"Blessed Is He Who Came Into Being Before He Came Into Being."
439

"Everyday I say to myself, today I will begin." - St. Anthony of the Desert 

Today, we begin.  This very moment, we begin... remembering that we ARE what's appearing as this moment, we are the substratum of the Now, we are the  Christ.  We celebrate the birth of Jesus today, the birth of the awareness of the Christ among us, and now, the birth of our awareness of the Christ within us.  

Repeat this mantra by Herb Fitch, "I am not man or woman, I live the day as I, Spirit", and notice how you're already, effortlessly detached from the body.   There's some space (t)here, naturally.  You, as Awareness, don't have to try to detangle your Self from the body, you already are the witness.  You already are Love.  Be That, by feeling It and remembering to feel It all day.  "Blessed is he who came into being before he came into being." (Gospel of Thomas)

Reminder: What You Call the 'Christmas Spirit' Is Your True Nature
379

You’re feeling absolutely fantastic this morning! But not for the reason you think. You don’t feel good because it’s Christmas Eve. You don’t feel good because you know what’s under the tree, or even because you’re off work or have no professional Zoom meetings tomorrow (likely for a whole week!), or that your favorite food is being prepared, or that your playlist is FIRE and the Temptations are going in on ‘Silent Night’.

All of these things may very well seem to be happening, but they’re not causing that quiet-Joy you’re aware of. You’re just presently in alignment... allowing yourself to feel good, to experience God. You’re currently BEing your true Self! This is your natural state— one of uncaused joy, ease, love, relaxation and peace. What people call ‘The Christmas Spirit’ is your original nature, and you can feel this way even on your first day back to work, if you give yourself permission.

God didn’t come closer this morning, and It won’t get further away next week. We just changed the way we are living in this moment. And now we must keep living this way... remembering to recognize that the Light is ALWAYS on inside. That we are this Light.

If you can stop waiting for special occasions to remember this background Joy, to feel Go(o)d, to be yourSelf, your life will change drastically from the inside out and very rapidly. I promise you. #MerryChristmas

With you in and AS Christhood,
@curlynikki

Today's Quotes:

"We all think of the Lord when troubled,

never when at peace.

But if we held our faith during peace,

there would be no trouble."

-Kabir Ke Dohe via IG

“This is the supreme meditation, this is the supreme worship: the continuous and unbroken awareness of the indwelling presence, inner light or consciousness. While doing whatever one is doing— seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving, sleeping, breathing or talking— one should realize one’s essential nature as pure consciousness. Thus does one attain liberation.” 
- The Yoga Vasistha

THIS Automatically Dissolves Negative Beliefs
452

"The 'problem' with most people who believe in God, is that they also believe in the devil.  That's believing in two powers rather than only one!"
-Gil Michaels 

"'...error is not real and it has no power.'  That is an incomplete statement because error does have power until it comes into contact with an illumined consciousness.  We should first complete the sentence by saying, 'error is not power in the presence of an illumined consciousness.'  Illumined consciousness is of course not human consciousness with knowledge.  You must bring the actual presence of God into the situation.  Harmony begins to come into your experience only as you attain the actual realized presence of God or spirit of God.  You can sum up the evils of the world in the words 'temporal power'.  Nothing happens to the errors that come into your experience until you have attained the realization of the presence of God-- then temporal power is dissolved as darkness is dissolved in the presence of light. Which means that evil or error of any nature is not power in the  presence of the realized presence of God." 
-Joel Goldsmith

"Faith is the greatest thing Jesus wanted us to learn: not blind faith in mere words, but faith born of the experience of his inner presence." 
-Swami Kriyananda 

Today's Practice:
Catch yourself believing in secondary powers.  Every time a thought is noticed about the inherent power of dollars or the media, immediately turn to the felt-presence of Love.  That's it.  You don't have to replace the thought or change the belief.  Just feel Love, and watch as every unnecessary belief is dissolved on sight.  This Love doesn't bring you into alignment, it IS alignment.  The moment you feel It, you're being your Self.  The moment you feel It, you're back on the Throne... it's Go(o)d here :) 

I Love you,

Experience Love's Presence, Instantly!
413

"I can
see angels
sitting on your ears,

 Polishing trumpets,
replacing lute strings,
stretching new skins on the drums
and gathering wood for the evening’s fire.

They all danced last night
but you did not
hear Them."
-excerpt from 'I Can See Angels' by Hafiz 

"To be present for God’s touches, Francis found that having the right word turning over and over again on the tongue could make all the difference. The right word relaxed first the tongue, then it served to calm even the most troubled heart. Of course this wouldn’t happen automatically but with practice. Francis learned to find nourishment, safety, warmth, all from a few carefully chosen words that echoed in his head and heart. These words were both blanket and food for the soul. When the soul felt warm and fed, the body too would clearly feel better. In the most challenging times it was his mantra that poured consolation and guidance around his lonely heart. For Francis and many of the brothers, their mantra gained the power to seize and lift the moment. “Lord, Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ” again and again and again “Lord Jesus Christ.” Once while saying his mantra, Francis distinctly heard a high beautiful voice singing, “Hallelujah, hallelujah” in his chest. He kept repeating, “Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ” as he listened to the heavenly choir singing, “Hallelujah, Hallelujah” within him and felt their angelic voices filling the chambers of his heart. Francis looked around and seeing a brother next to him, he was surprised the brother did not also hear it."
-Dr. Bruce Davis, 'Simple Peace: Spiritual Life of Francis of Assisi (pp. 34-35). iUniverse. Kindle Edition. 

Bonus Quote:

"The Name comes through the heart and moves the lips and tongue.  The vibration is the holy name of Krsna.  When Krsna in the form of sound descends from (the) transcendental world into the heart, and from the heart, controlling every aspect of the nervous system, comes to the lips and tongue dancing there; that is krsna-nama."
-Srila Prabhupada 

Today's Practice:
Chant a name of God and know that God is present the moment you hear the Name.  God was always present, you just weren't.  But now you are.  

First you become aware of God as the Name, then as the vibration, and then, as the feeling of Love.  Then, abruptly stop the recitation and just BE LOVE.  Rest AS Love in the silence that was before, during, and after the repetition of the Name.  Identify with this Love.  And know that this Love is all there is. 

I Love you, 
Nik

"Follow the stream of Love you already know, no matter how small it is."
439

It's my ex-hubby's year to Love on the kids for the holidays, so after a tearful goodbye yesterday, I wanted to share how I still managed to lean into Love (this will be my first Christmas morning without them), and will continue to as I navigate this life thing.   

"Follow the stream of Love you already know, no matter how small it is." - St. Francis of Assisi

"As a drop of water poured into wine loses itself, and takes the color and savor of wine; or as a bar of iron, heated red-hot, becomes like fire itself, forgetting its own nature; or as the air, radiant with sun-beams, seems not so much to be illuminated as to be light itself; so in the saints all human affections melt away by some unspeakable transmutation into the will of God.  For how could God be all in all, if anything merely human remained in man?  The substance will endure, but in another beauty, a higher power, a greater glory."
― Bernard of Clairvaux, On Loving God

"Real enlightenment will annihilate you and subsequently turn you into God. The waters of surrender and the fire of awareness will merge, dissolving the ego into thin air and allowing the one unborn Consciousness, hiding behind “I,” to shine through you, as you.

Just because you were born, don’t assume that you are truly alive. Being born is what gives you the freedom to actually be alive—and euphorically dance and sing with the whole of creation—if you choose to."
-SantataGamana. Turiya - The God State: Beyond Kundalini, Kriya Yoga & all Spirituality (Real Yoga Book 5) (p. 18). Real Yoga 

Today's Practice:
Staying in touch with Love during the ups and downs of life is the purpose of this life.  Surrendering to (relaxing into) feeling this Love in every moment, even the sad ones (when the body is tense, stomach clenched, and breath shallow), while challenging, changes not only the quality of that moment but the future-nows as well. 

Permission slips I used yesterday included remembering that the Christ is born within us everyday, not just once a year. Every day is Christmas.  Everyday is a celebration once you remember this Love.  And then taking it a step further by seeing through days altogether.  Only Love is here and sometimes we call it Monday or Saturday, and every now and then, Christmas.  And that no matter where I appear to be, or where my kiddos appear to be, we are together in Love, always. That's where my Grandma is, too... and your departed loved ones, and God... One in this Place.  This Love.  

Finally, and obviously, taking a trip to Assisi, Italy is a permission slip to feel Love, too.  But I must highlight that this opportunity to go on silent retreat only unfolded in the last two weeks, the way the rest of the Go(o)d events in this life seem to happen-- through relaxation, not tension, through abiding in the calm before, during and after the storms of life.  I stay convinced that Life is dope, and it always proves  itself to be just that.  I'll be on silent retreat in St. Francis' (and St. Clare’s) home town, but not absent from here! New episodes will continue to go live erry'day, while I pray :)

I Love you, 
Nik

Hold Your Faith, Meet No Trouble
322

"We all think of the Lord when troubled, 
never when at peace. 
But if we held our faith during peace, 
there would be no trouble."
-Kabir Ke Dohe via IG

Bonus Quote:

"If we take into our meditation the question, "what is God?" ultimately we shall be led to the secret of prayer, and when we have achieved correct prayer, meditation, or communion, we shall be led to a God-experience, which is a 'peace, be still' to any form of error that may ever touch us.  As a matter of fact, continuing in the God-experience will prevent about ninety-odd percent of the world's troubles ever touching us, and the little that may touch us will be quickly resolved."
-Joel Goldsmith 

Today's Practice:

Moments of peace are the best time to practice Love.  Set the intention today to hold your heart in peace on this beautiful Sunday, so that when moments of chaos come, you don't have to effort.  You're already practicing Love. You're already Being Love. Nothing can shake you.  No thing can disturb you.  There is no trouble in the Kingdom.  And you are That. 

I Love you,

Unwrap Your Present
378

Because I feel Go(o)d now, I trust my future will be, too.

Repeat these words, feelingly:
The past is over. Only Go(o)d lies before me now.
Only Love lies before me now. 
Only Love is here. 
And I Am That. 

"The future is made up of only one substance and that is the present moment. By taking care of the present, you are doing everything you can to assure a good future." 
- Thich Nhat Hanh

"Our future is our present brought to light."
-Herb Fitch 
 
Keep returning to today's mantra, "only Go(o)d lies before me'.  Keep feeling the Love that it's pointing to. Don't live another second without feeling the Love it's pointing to.  Let life unfold in this feeling of Love, and it will unfold AS this feeling of Love. 

When you're feeling Love presently, It takes shape as your future-n
