It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

Marianne Williamson is the author of A Return to Love.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Mysticism. The Light of an Idea. by Stuart Dean and John Van Auken.

The following are two Cayce affirmations for living by the light of loving oneness.

“Let that light be within me in such measures that I, as a child of God, may realize His love for man. May I live that, then, in my life day by day.” –262-129

“Our Father, through the love that Thou hast manifested in the world through Thy son, the Christ, make us more aware of ‘God is Love.'” –262-43

We can get in touch with our God-made ideal.

That peace that gives understanding.

Seeing in others then that thou would worship in the Father; for the prayer was, ‘May they be one, even as Thou and I are one’, for, as given, a spiritual insight brings the seeing of the best in each life.

There is good in all, for they are of the Father, and have been bought with the price…! Be patient, and see the glory of God! See in others something as may be glorified by Him, and see in self that you would consecrate to Him.

Your daily acts, your words, your speech — these will bring that understanding, and the realization of the ideal being manifest in you, as well as in others.”

In the early years at A.R.E. many of us worked very hard and still do to set and live by an ideal.

Just imagine what the effect would be to set loving oneness with God and others as your material, mental, and spiritual ideal, as the standard by which to measure yourself. Try it for a few months. You’ll be amazed at the change in your life, and what others say about the new you!

The great truths are simple, but as we know, they are not simple to apply each day. Yet, living by an ideal is a transformative experience worth the effort. It is very helpful to have your ideal stated in a little mantra or affirmation that you can say within your heart and mind throughout the day.

Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records: The Book of Life

Kevin J. Todeschi – 1998 – Body, Mind & Spirit – 181 pages
the readings frequently advised individuals to set an ideal — a purposeful, positive intent against which they could measure their potential thoughts

Psalm 139:8

If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.

We Christians need to allow Jesus Christ to be bigger than Christianity.

As Jesus said (or the Christ spirit with whom Jesus made himself one), “Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and they shall become one flock, one shepherd,” John 10:16.

Jesus said that he taught and did what he was guided to do from God, the Father, within him. And before leaving us to become completely one with God, Jesus informed us that the “Comforter,” the “Spirit of Truth,” would come to us and guide us.

Of course, not only Christians have to let go of religious elitism. Jews, Moslems, and others have contingents that believe their faith is the only true faith, and all must swear allegiance to their doctrines.

As difficult as it may be, Christians, Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus, and other religious groups are going to have to allow God to be the God of all people, and open their own hearts to all people.

As the psalmist observed, God is everywhere and creator of everyone:

“Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there. If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there thy hand leads me, and thy right hand holds me,” Psalm 139:7-10.

Cayce often quoted the passage: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord,” Deut. 6:4 & Mark 12:29.


(I really needed to look away from the darkness, which is all around us, for a spell. So I turned to listening, instead. Surely the darkness was there, too. Listen to “Pirate Jenny.”)

    The lights went down and here comes Judy out those doors, you know those Carnegie Hall doors.

    It’s goin’ to be a long time gone.
    Appears to be a long time,
    Yes, a long, long, log time
    Before the dawn.
    Turn, turn any corner.
    Hear, you must hear what the people say,
    You know there’s something that’s goin’ on here,
    That surely, surely, surely won’t stand the light of day.
    And it appears to be a long,
    Such a long, long, long time before the dawn.
    Speak out, you got to speak out against
    The madness, you got to speak your mind,
    If you dare.
    But don’t try to get you rself elected.
    If you do you had better cut your hair.
    ‘Cause it appears to be a long time,
    Before the dawn.
    It’s been a long time comin’,
    It’s been a long time gone.
    But you know, the darkest hour,
    Is always just before the dawn.
    And it appears to be a long time,
    Such a long, long, long time before the dawn.

    The View From the Left

    By the way, all these Republicans are merely saying to declare victory and wrap this up.

    Because they know what everyone knows – this will be a substantive policy victory that sets them up well for future fights on spending.

    Democrats basically came almost 100% of the way to their side on that, now offering $38 billion in budget cuts in the 2011 fiscal year.

    That’s a real policy shift to austerity at a time when fiscal stimulus is actually still necessary.

    Republicans can take that sure policy victory and move on to the next fight, or sit around trying to impose a social agenda and take a political hit that could change the policy implications.

    The choice is clear for anyone with enough reason – and since Michele Bachmann agrees, I guess unreason as well.

    (David Dayen is my go-to guy when I want to see what the left is up to.)

    Senior Republican pessimistic on budget bargain
    By James Politi in Washington

    Published: April 4 2011

    A staunch conservative, Mr Sessions believes the Simpson-Bowles fiscal commission did not go far enough in reining in long-term deficits and has been advocating a tough line in the current battle over discretionary spending in the 2011 budget.

    Critics argue that this more adversarial stance may be an obstacle to any bipartisan deal,

    especially in contrast to the more consensus-seeking position adopted by his predecessor, Judd Gregg, the former New Hampshire senator.

    These reports are inaccurate.

    Congressman Pence has made no statement concerning the ongoing negotiations and remains committed to the Pence Amendment and will continue to work with colleagues to include this measure in any final legislation.”

    ‘The Case of the Missing Birth Certificate’

    Has best-selling author Jerome Corsi cracked it wide open?

    Posted: April 07, 2011

    (My guess is that Obama was born in Hawaii, but doesn’t want us to see long-form as it was amended owing to young Barack being adopted by stepfather Lolo Soetoro. So Obama is “naturalized” not natural-born.)

    Hawaii senator wonders what Obama’s concealing

    ‘Why would anyone spend millions not to make that information public?’

    Posted: April 05, 2011

    Slom wrote Abercrombie, asking what happened with Dr. Neal Palafox, a well-respected physician picked to replace Chiyome Fukino, who had served as guardian of Barack Obama’s birth certificate when she was head of the department.

    Abercrombie responded in a letter, saying little more than, “I will comment if and when appropriate.”

    The blogosphere at the time was rife with speculation that Abercrombie dispatched Palafox as health director because he was unable to produce evidence supporting Abercrombie’s repeated claims Obama was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center.

    And while Slom did not respond to WND requests for reaction to Abercrombie’s terse letter, the state senator has said he would be happy to use the Palafox case if it would permit him to open up to the public any birth records the Hawaii health department has on Obama.

    “If Palafox serves as a shoehorn to get for the public any Obama birth records the Hawaii Department of Health has, I am all for doing so,” he said.

    “I don’t understand why Obama has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep all his records from the public – not just his Hawaii birth records, but his passport records and his school records.

    All Obama’s records should be public, including any Hawaii birth records that exist.”

  16. blessedistruth Says:

    Just because Hawaii not in possession of long-form, doesn’t mean it never existed. Could be “missing.”

    For you are with me;
    Your rod and Your staff – they comfort me.
    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You anoint my head with oil;

    I’ve been praying a lot, about this, and other things.

    I see a man with the same wound where Jesus was pierced in His side.

    Not Jesus, a man. I don’t see his face, just the wound, which looks like mine, except its located where Jesus was pierced.

    The piercing of Jesus’ side is another connection between Jesus, the “last Adam,” and the first Adam.

    •Genesis 2:21–24
    •John 19:34

    Augustin ((saint , John E.. Rotelle – 2002 – Bible – 539 pages

    For the first Adam was made into a living soul, the last Adam into a life-giving spirit (1 Cor 15:46).

    St. Ambrose — Commentary on St. Luke

    “There came forth water and blood, poured out for the life of the world.

    This life of the world is the rib of Christ, the rib of the second Adam.

    For the first Adam was made into a living soul, the last Adam into a life-giving spirit, the last Adam is Christ; the rib of Christ is the life of the Church.

    From His side water flowed and blood.”

  28. blessedistruth Says:

    On this subject, Saint Paul tells us, “What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory.

    It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a physical body, it is raised a spiritual body.

    If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body.

    Thus it is written, ‘The first man, Adam, became a living being’; the last Adam (Jesus) became a life-giving spirit.

    But it is not the spiritual that is first, but the physical, and then the spiritual.

    The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven.” [1 Cor. 15:42-7]

    The man from Heaven does not live by the same rules as the man of dust. The man of Heaven no longer feels hunger or thirst.

    He no longer gets tired or needs to sleep. He no longer experiences day or night, warmth or cold.

    He no longer sheds tears for he continuously enjoys the beatific vision of God.

    Death shall have been conquered through the Sacred Blood of Jesus Christ. With death shall depart suffering and pain.

    In eternal life, those who have persevered to the end, they shall all enjoy the fulness of life as it was meant to be enjoyed.

    They shall be counted among the living, all sharing the same Father, the living God. May His Holy Name be glorified and praised forever!

    For “He is God not of the dead, but of the living.” [Lk. 20:38]

    “Everybody should put their birth certificate on the table and not worry about it,” she said.

    “It doesn’t have to be a toxic issue. Put your birth certificate in, end of story. We have a lot bigger fish to fry than this.”
