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.

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.

Believing It Is True

“The thought that you think,
you think,
which attracts to it;
so you think it some more,
which attracts to it;
so you think it some more.

In other words,
when you have an expectation,
you’ve got a dominant thought going on,
and Law of Attraction is going to deliver that to you
again, and again and again.
And you say,
“The reason that I believe this,
is because it is true.”
And we say,
the reason that you believe it,
is because you’ve practiced the thought.

All that a belief is,
is a thought that you keep practicing.”


— Abraham, Esther Hicks

Spread some joy today by realizing that joy is your natural dominion and that the only roadblock is practicing a belief that this is not the case. Stop. Pivot. Choose again. Joy is your dominion.
