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

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering and Loss

“Inner peace can be reached
only when we practice forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the letting go of the past,
and is therefore the means
for correcting our misperceptions.

Through true forgiveness
we can stop the endless recycling of guilt
and look upon ourselves and others with Love.
Forgiveness releases all thoughts
that seem to separate us from each other.
Without the belief in separation,
we can accept our own healing
and extend healing Love to all those around us.
Healing results from the thought of unity.

Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss.”

Love Is Letting Go Of Fear

Happy Mother’s Day

I wanted to share a beautiful short poem from Hafiz for Mother’s Day and I found that I could not choose one or the other, so I offer both in celebration of all on this day. Injoy!

How Does It Feel To Be A Heart?

Once a young woman asked me,

“How does it feel to be a man?”
And I replied,

“My dear,
I am not so sure.”

Then she said,
“Well, aren’t you a man?”

And this time I replied,

“I view gender
As a beautiful animal
That people often take for a walk on a leash
And might enter in some odd contest
To try to win strange prizes.

My dear,
A better question for Hafiz
Would have been,

‘How does it feel to be a heart?’

For all I know is Love,
And I find my heart Infinite
And Everywhere!”

This is a question I ask of all Mothers today: How does it feel to be a heart? And to the following poem I can only think of a mother’s pure love and care and delight with Hafiz in the thought and feeling of such love.

Keeping Watch

“In the morning
When I began to wake,
It happened again–

That feeling
That You, Beloved,
Had stood over me all night
Keeping watch,

That feeling
That as soon as I began to stir

You put Your lips on my forehead
And lit a Holy Lamp
Inside my heart.”

Love Is Letting Go Of Fear

“There is no terror in the bang,
only in the anticipation of it.”


— Alfred Hitchcock

“Fear itself is not the impediment to your joyful life.
But, fear is pointing at the impediment to your joyful life.
And just as the feeling of fear is within you,
the impediment is within you also.”


— Abraham, Esther Hicks

“Fear always distorts our perception
and confuses us as to what is going on.
Love is the total absence of fear…
Love, then, is letting go of fear.”


— Gerald G. Jampolsky

The Neutral Zone

“Divesting meaning from memory…
This is how history can be healed.
It is being re-known.

To re-know the memory
is to release the ideas attached to it,
and gift it with neutrality, without bias.”


— Paul Selig

Albert Einstein so famously said many years ago, “The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” And, one of my favorite quotes of his is his enlightened definition of insanity which is doing the same things and expecting a different result.

I never realized until very recently how much our history affects our present. They say that if we don’t remember our history that we are doomed to repeat it, but the reality is that we repeat it and have been repeating it for hundreds if not thousands of generations. A truly perfect example of this history is continually taught from parent to child, and through media, and is so pervasive that we think it is a law. That example is right and wrong. Right and wrong are judgments. As we judge, so shall we reap. Yet we continue.

So Paul Selig, via his channeled books, shows the way to heal the past and to heal the present and to heal the future all at the same time. Cease judgment. Stop finding fault and instead see all as what it really is, events, circumstances, choices, and all are purely neutral until we insert judgment which then polarizes them and creates all manner of rules to deal with them, and punishment is the end result.

Yet this is all fear. Fear has one single purpose: To recreate itself. It must create more fear. The Law of Attraction will ensure it. However, there are two possibilities to transform this into joy. One is to see everything as neutral. It is what it is. It happened as it happened. What can I learn from this? What is this here to teach me? The other is to find appreciation, to share love, to spread joy, to express kindness. The Law of Attraction cannot do anything other than to compound those choices into more of the same, and even greater joys.

Anytime that you may be feeling low or down, do as I have and take a giant leap backward. Look at the image in this post. In this image, there is nothing to judge. There is no right and wrong. There is only what it is. There are not even any visible humans, though billions of them are down there. It is peaceful here. There is love here. There is joy here. There is awe and wonder here.

We have the power to heal ourselves and our land as we maintain our sanity, and our love and joy.

Good and Gooder

“Thou hast given so much to me,
give one thing more, –a grateful heart,
not thankful when it pleaseth me
as if Thy blessings had spare days,
but such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.”

— George Herbert

“He who thanks but with the lips,
thanks but in part;
the full, the true Thanksgiving,
comes from the heart.”

— J. A. Shedd

“As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget
that the highest appreciation
is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

— John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Becoming a grateful person requires practice, and it also requires letting go of anger, disappointment, complaining, and the like; however, I need not make a complete and immediate turnaround, as it is just fine with the little-at-a-time method of accomplishment.

As I’ve found in my life, the more that I am grateful, the less I find to be unhappy about. It is an accumulating process that overshadows, or rather, weeds out the need or desire to complain or be angry or unhappy. Even as some of those seemingly negative things pop up from time to time, they are so easily dealt with by finding what in them there is to learn from them and to be grateful for.

At first, it may seem strange that something that is making me angry or upset could have something in it that there is to be thankful for, but I have learned that it is in there somewhere.

As I widen my field to see a bigger picture of something I’ve tuned into that is upsetting to me on the surface, I cannot help but find something or even many things to be thankful for. The cause for anger or concern then becomes a source of celebration instead of a pity party. I really think that this was what Paul in the Bible was referring to when he said to be thankful for all things.

All experiences can be experienced as for the good of us or another if we only look at them with new eyes and learn to respond instead of reacting. It is the small picture; that is, focusing on the thing that is distressing to me, that keeps me upset. Heck, I may even find that by widening my field of vision that we can see myself in a previous time causing the same stress on someone else. A little patience goes a long way here.

My mother told us when we were very young to count to ten before responding when something makes you mad. Not bad advice, really, but even better, is to look for the benefit in all events, and then it becomes much easier to be thankful for all things. Once I start looking at every situation as a way to learn and grow regardless of how it causes me to feel at the moment, progress is imminent. I now absolutely believe there is a reward for me in every event or situation. As I change my judgments from seeing good and bad to seeing good and gooder, I find the joy that I really wanted all along.
