    “Let us offer prayers and blessings
    for all people and all nations of the Earth.
    Let us bless that, though intense, this will also become a time
    of conscious awakening and healing for everyone.
    We know, from the lessons of history,
    that great difficulties, disasters and challenging times
    also can strengthen and unify us by dissolving the differences
    that appear to divide us.

    Calamities often strengthen us internally,
    making us more deeply aware of the highest values of life.
    Troubling times encourage us to work together,
    to genuinely care for each other.
    Such events make us more aware of our collective strength
    when we work together as one united human family.
    May we grow in unity, love and understanding.

    The Lord’s Blessings be upon
    all people and nations affected at this time.
    May governments and all helpers move in an inspired,
    co-operative and harmonious way,
    so that collectively we are able to put right
    whatever needs to be put right within our capacity.
    Our prayer is that this disease comes to an end soon.
    We believe, trust, know this will happen.

    This is a prayer for our entire world and its leaders.
    We pray that the greater, higher Truth which dwells inside us all
    raises us up in conscious awareness of our true nature and Being
    so that we become more kind, more open,
    more loving, wise, peaceful and powerful in the Truth we are.
    May we live fully in the joy of our real nature
    in accordance with the will of the Supreme God Almighty.”

    Enlightening times deserve good rhymes

    Entertaining lines...sweeping through minds
    Leading not to a place...but..to a state..of grace
    Be Flexible, In Body and Mind... Be Wise and Prize What You Find... Be Clear, No Fear to Blind... Be Nice, Think Twice, Be Kind

    *Beautiful Guided Meditation With Mooji*: A Peaceful Life Is Priceless

    "This powerful and intimate guided silent sitting was recorded for us while Moojibaba is in self-quarantine, inviting us all to sit with him in the room of Being.

    “I’m only guiding you, your attention, back to your natural state of stillness. A peaceful life is priceless, a peaceful mind is priceless. Here peace and contentment go together.

    Effortlessly at rest, no striving to be somewhere else or to be in any other state, and notice that your entire being is enjoying this rest. The more that you allow this sort of shutting down, the more you will love it. Your life, responding to this, becomes very harmonious, very silent, very happy.”

    Oh, thanks for this Wind

    Quote I've never heard of anybody who "awakens" in their comfort zone
    Quote And this is an invitation to go "deeper" because if you don't you "suffer" ... UNNECESSARILY !
    If I might suggest, in exploring what is being pointed at here, please leave your "thinking" at the door eh ?

    Why ? Because it's so absolutely true, I'd say, that your "Conceptual Mind" is like the "surface of the ocean" whereas what you really are is more like the "stillness of the depths of the ocean" eh ?

    Ah, for those of us that are temporarily "locked down", I'd suggest that perhaps this period of seeming "global distress" can be utilised for a moment of "reflection", if you feel so inclined, so as to take a peek "under the hood" (so-to-say) of our everyday surface "identity" ... to turn one's attention upon itself to look for the apparent subject, the unquestioned belief in the Reality of the "I" thought eh ?


    Or perhaps you were not Aware that such Introspection is even possible and that furthermore it can be the most precious use of your "free" time because it reveals directly in immediate experience the "I" as being merely an object to your true nature which is Awareness eh ?

    And what's more, you don't have to "cough up a single dime" to do it !!!

    "In this touching talk, Mooji addresses the growing concerns we face as a human race in the light of the coronavirus pandemic. He offers great encouragement on the topic of fear, and shares guidance on how to stay true and wake up in this time of crisis."

    “I see that this time, challenging as it is,
    is also offering us a new path; a path of Grace.
    Life is offering us an opportunity to go within.
    The love of God serves every living being.
    So Grace is here to guide us through difficult times.

    I pray from my heart that each one will grow inwardly.
    That we come to a higher level of life in the true sense.
    That we see with more a unitive sense that we are one family,
    living together with greater love and understanding.
    Bless you, bless you, each and every one.”

    ~ Mooji

    How Do I Handle the Fear That I'm Feeling?

    In this video, Eckhart answers how we transcend any fearful thoughts we might have about losing our job, money, getting sick, or the fear of something happening to a loved one. He also shows us how we can turn our attention away from any fearful thinking and focus on the inner body and deepening into the present moment. Subscribe to find greater fulfillment in life:

    acknowledge that you feel it, allow your self to feel it; realize that there is no action needed and it is (as usual) a reaction based on limited data sets.
    (this fit's most "fear" situations faced by 1st world man)
    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.

    Oh, for those of us who already have an interest in so-called "self-realisation", here's an excellent "Pointer" from Paul Hedderman in which I'd say he very clearly illuminates why the outward-looking-self (our normal mode of everyday-living) will never "get it" ... but as soon as your "attention" is reversed it can happen that "you" suddenly see "what you're not" and I agree with Paul when he says :

    Quote It's the seeing of what I'm not ... that's what I am


    Indeed, you can "live your life fully" but it's not from the position of the "illusory self", instead, it's AS what you ARE, not as what you appear to be !!!

    Without fear - John Butler

    "In the present moment, there's no fear. Try it for yourself, and feel the peaceful joy. You don't need faith - it's a simple, straightforward demonstration of what's provided. Just be present to feel the comfort and safety of 'everlasting arms', and the love of God surpassing anything that ever comes from man."

    I am listening to readings from Neville Goddard.



    I am seriously working on the ideals of creating a beautiful life.

    Quote https://biblehub.com/philippians/4-8.htm
    Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Finally. Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. Philippians 3:1
    I think that this opportunity gifted is take hold of some new principles. It is not enough for god to watch creation. In the depths of our soul is god. Can we work with that to change the paradigm of the old illusion? This is the perfect impetus for us to take responsibility for living the good news. This is simply that everything we experience is really truly maya and just a state of "mind". The good news is that everything is happening amazingly fast so we don't have to wait for the imagination to appear in front of our eyes.

    There are principles that work IN ANY WAY WE CHOOSE with Free Will. We really have free will! Free will means there must be infinite possibilities or one would be forced to choose the same thing as other ones. There has to be a way to make infinite possibility to be freed into materialization. Or it would not be "free". We have now arrived at the end of an age. The new age is our own possibility imagined. The kink we have been given is IMO the clarion call. What happens if people make the ideals they thought impossibly good be their constant prayer. All day long "thinking" on THESE wonderful imaginings makes it happen in real time. This is free will as we always asked... This eclipses trying to think about how all this ever happened. It is all a story in Maya. We can work with this principle and think of everything we ever dreamed.

    God made us natural and we have a natural kind of story. It is natural to have change and it is natural as humans to be responsible for conceiving the story as we like. We have bodies but we are soul and body in one if we so choose. This makes everything so much more amazing. It is a relationship with the Unknown God that changes us SUPER NATURALLY in a direction of imagining the best. When we truly feel beloved by that larger love, we can love more. This is all a natural experience to work with LOVE and thrive. Love makes it all easy because we feel super natural and LOVE says yes, YOU ARE more beautiful and more beautiful.
    Be super natural, it's the new baseline for us as HUMAN on a new earth.

    Every one who decides can be the one to imagine everything here and see it come into view sooner than we ever thought. Know however, you will see yourself so the golden rule is the way.

    I am listening to readings from Neville Goddard.



    I am seriously working on the ideals of creating a beautiful life.

    Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Finally. Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. Philippians 3:1
    I think that this opportunity gifted is take hold of some new principles. It is not enough for god to watch creation. In the depths of our soul is god. Can we work with that to change the paradigm of the old illusion? This is the perfect impetus for us to take responsibility for living the good news. This is simply that everything we experience is really truly maya and just a state of "mind". The good news is that everything is happening amazingly fast so we don't have to wait for the imagination to appear in front of our eyes.

    There are principles that work IN ANY WAY WE CHOOSE with Free Will. We really have free will! Free will means there must be infinite possibilities or one would be forced to choose the same thing as other ones. There has to be a way to make infinite possibility to be freed into materialization. Or it would not be "free". We have now arrived at the end of an age. The new age is our own possibility imagined. The kink we have been given is IMO the clarion call. What happens if people make the ideals they thought impossibly good be their constant prayer. All day long "thinking" on THESE wonderful imaginings makes it happen in real time. This is free will as we always asked... This eclipses trying to think about how all this ever happened. It is all a story in Maya. We can work with this principle and think of everything we ever dreamed.

    God made us natural and we have a natural kind of story. It is natural to have change and it is natural as humans to be responsible for conceiving the story as we like. We have bodies but we are soul and body in one if we so choose. This makes everything so much more amazing. It is a relationship with the Unknown God that changes us SUPER NATURALLY in a direction of imagining the best. When we truly feel beloved by that larger love, we can love more. This is all a natural experience to work with LOVE and thrive. Love makes it all easy because we feel super natural and LOVE says yes, YOU ARE more beautiful and more beautiful.
    Be super natural, it's the new baseline for us as HUMAN on a new earth.

    Every one who decides can be the one to imagine everything here and see it come into view sooner than we ever thought. Know however, you will see yourself so the golden rule is the way.

    I discovered him last year, his teachings are so profound and beautiful. And there are actually nowadays quite some people/teacher who filter through his work and make it accessible to many people. I like the energy of Brian, whose channel you found. Also Brian’s Interview with Mr 2020 is excellent, I think 2020 touches on very fine nuances in Nevilles work, one can see that he put it to use in real life with himself and many people he worked with.

    Cheers!
