Willingness To Let Go

“To forgive is to feel
the compassion, gentleness,
tenderness, and caring
that is always within our hearts,
no matter how the world may seem
at the moment.

Forgiveness is the way to a place
of inner peace and happiness,
the way to our soul.

That place of peace
is always available to us,
always ready to welcome us in.

Through forgiveness,
we receive all that our hearts
could ever want.
We are released from
our fear, anger, and pain
to experience oneness
with each other
and our spiritual Source.


— Gerald G. Jampolsky
Forgiveness:
The Greatest Healer Of All

The Enlightened Life

The real value of reading many authors who may even be writing on similar subject matters is that each of them has an individually unique understanding and thereby an individually unique way of explaining what they have learned. As I was reading a different book from one of my favorite authors, Gerald G. Jampolsky, in Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer Of All, I found this golden nugget of wisdom expressed in a way that I had not before experienced. I hope you injoy his perspective. The first line was enough to inspire me!

“It can be helpful to think of the ego as having a belief system of its own. If we want, we can accept its beliefs or seek other ways of looking at the world. Of course, we have to remember that our egos are part of who we are. The greater our ability to recognize our fearful ego, the freer we are to choose a more loving and peaceful life.”

He goes on to say that the ego’s thought system foundation is fear, guilt, and blame. All of that is fear in different forms. And, if we followed the ego’s thought system as our guiding principles, we would always be in a state of conflict. I might also add another “c” word, contempt. It is easy enough to find these guiding principles at work all around us, and it is a good clue as to what portion of us is in charge.

Dr. Jampolsky also indicates that the ego, based on the information just presented, creates the belief within the ego that nobody deserves forgiveness, including ourselves. He states that our egos are very clever, and based on these beliefs, create all manner of havoc in our lives.

Yet, the good news is in the quote above. “The greater our ability to recognize our fearful ego, the freer we are to choose a more loving and peaceful life.”

We are always in charge. We can allow our ego to rule or be the manager of it instead. Either way, we are in charge and in our choosing.

I choose a more loving and peaceful life by spreading the joy that comes from awareness and the power of choice.

Just Let Go Of The Oars

“We would like you to understand that as you begin to approach your world in terms of vibration rather than action, and in terms of thought rather than in terms of time and space and distance, your ability to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be will be much more efficient.

The Current will carry you… just let go of the oars.

When you are no longer paddling against the Current–when you release your oars and relax into your own natural Well-Being–the Current, which is ever moving in the direction of that which you have become and all that you want, will carry you toward your desires.

The belief that there is something to overcome automatically points you upstream. Understanding that all you desire is easily attainable by you automatically points you downstream. And once you understand that, you are practicing the Art of Allowing your natural Well-Being to flow to you and you to it… and that is the Art of Allowing yourself to be the You that life has caused you to become.”


— Abraham, Esther Hicks
The Astonishing Power of Emotions

To me, as Abraham calls it–the Art of Allowing–is the most powerful thing I have ever learned. I make use of that knowledge every single day now. The Art of Allowing is love to me. It is unconditional love. And in this quote above, it is unconditionally loving ourselves by coming to know–to know in our knower, as my previous pastor used to say.

It is coming into our knowing. It is trust. It is an unshakable belief. It is controlling without any need to control. It is being in charge by virtue of our ultimate choosing. When we love ourselves enough to allow and to flow with All-That-Is, we have no use for oars.

Rock Your Personal World

“It turns out that it is not possible
to separate anything from anything, though,
because at the core of all of those things
is you and the way you feel.
As you focus upon one unpleasant
or unwanted aspect of life,
it bleeds over into all other aspects.

Can you see, in looking back,
that there were opportunities
to look for positive aspects,
but because you were fixated
upon negative aspects,
those became your dominant experience?

Focus upon what you do want,
become a Vibrational Match
to what you do want,
train your point of attraction
to what you do want–
and watch your personal world become that.”


— Abraham, Esther Hicks

Meant To Be

“How did we come up with the notion
that life is not okay just the way it is,
or that it won’t be okay the way it will be?

Who said that the way life

naturally unfolds is not all right?

The answer is, fear says so.

Everything will be okay
as soon as you are okay with everything.
And that’s the only time everything will be okay.”

— Michael A. Singer

I’ve heard people say, “it was meant to be,” and I’ve also heard them say, “it was not meant to be,” as if we are not in control of our own lives and our own environment. I was thinking a bit about this and wrote down these notes:

If it was not meant to be, it would not have happened. Sometimes we ask why? This is not the best question. A better question would be, what can I learn from this? or what is this here to teach me?

And here’s something even better. It is. And now that it is, it is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to see what we can learn. It is an opportunity to learn how to flow with life. It is an opportunity to change our perspective. It is an opportunity to love and let go of fear. It is an opportunity to allow us to experience more joy.

Playing In The Mud

“Anything you desire,
the Universe can find a way to let it happen
within the context of people’s natural, joyful desires.
It must be, for this is a joy-based Universe.

And so, as you watch children

playing in the mud and having great joy in it,
you might not enjoy playing in the mud, but they do.

And so, there’s somebody enjoying
doing something you don’t want to do.
And that pretty much applies to everything.
There’s someone who would enjoy doing every thing

that you don’t want to do.

And if it really came down to where there was
really not one person willing to do that thing,
you would develop another way of approaching it.

There are a lot of things that were in your history
that you no longer participate in.
You left them behind
because no one wanted to do them.”

— Abraham, Esther Hicks

The Guest House

“This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.”


— Rumi

Learning To Trust

“Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved.”

― William P. Young

In the last few years, I have learned a good deal about trust. Abraham, Esther Hicks might call that allowing rather than trust, and that is fine with me because trust is allowing and allowing is trust. Particularly in the last three years, I have made some decisions that required me to trust the outcome and to trust in those I was dealing with. So far, everything has worked out better than I might have anticipated.

There are signs I’ve had on my wall for several years and have even moved from place to place. Actually, there are three signs, and they are shown in the image here. Things are always working out for me is great because it requires trust to have this come to pass. What is My job and How is God’s job also keeps me in trust, especially when I am willing to relinquish control (my ego) and allow myself the benefit and liberation of not needing to know the exact outcome, yet know deep down that whatever it is will always be working out for me. And the third sign, Enjoy the unfolding is also about trust and allowing and also to be present here and now and enjoy the journey which always contains learning.

It is fascinating to me that these three signs not only have been with me for a while but that I now see them as all focused on trust and allowing. It is obvious now how much I have needed to learn more about trust, trusting, and allowing without needing to know all the details. It is also important to recognize that these signs have been active reminders in steering me toward my bliss, my joy, building more confidence in the magic of trust.

Learning to trust in several big decisions and their results have also taught me to trust hundreds of smaller decisions and situations. I stand amazed at how much I have learned about trusting the decision and the outcome no matter what it is in so short a time. This brings more joy, peace, and appreciation with every act of faith.
