I Am Surrounded by the Love of God
"I am surrounded by the Love of God."
- A Course in Miracles Lesson 264
"Stillness is the highest level of intensity. When there is stillness within you, your body, mind, and energies will be exuberantly intense."
Keep remembering that you are surrounded by the Love of God, until it is revealed that you are the Love that's doing the surrounding. You are the Love that pervades and appears as the body. You are the Love that the world appears to take place in. Be this Love, consciously.
I love you,
Walking AS Love with Rupert Spira
One of my favorite spiritual messengers, Rupert Spira, penned a DELICIOUS poem at the top of the year, and he gave me his blessing to share it with you!
Lockdown Nights in Oxford by Rupert Spira, author of Being Myself
"Last night I walked the streets of Oxford with Kabir
The night before it was Jesus
And the night before, Rumi visited, uninvited!
Every night a different companion but always the same Friend
Why go anywhere when the Beloved always comes to you?
I pointed out the smiling houses to Kabir
(Have you noticed that houses have a face?)
‘It is I who am smiling’, he said.
‘I am happy to see you’, I said to Atmananda the next night
‘You are happiness itself’, he replied.
I stood outside a chapel
And listened to a choir with Brother Lawrence
‘Our love for God is God’s love for us’, he said.
And the next night, Meister Eckhart,
‘There is a huge silence inside each of us
That beckons us into itself’
‘Know nothing’, Socrates said the following night
‘Be everything’, added Parmenides.
I showed Plotinus the gardens
But he said, ‘I see only one thing’
I talked with the Buddha
But he remained silent
I was silent with Moses
But he started to sing
I uttered the word ‘I’
But Balyani held his hand to my mouth
I asked Huang Po if he could hear the stream
‘There is only the hearing’, he said.
I found William Blake naked in the park
‘Do you see how, through perception, the infinite gives birth to itself?’
‘He’s right’, Ramana said,
‘The universe is born every moment
Through the portal I Am’
And later, when I suggested we rest,
‘I am always at rest’, he smiled
‘Thine this universal frame,
Thus wondrous fair,
Thyself how wondrous then?’
Milton asked ecstatically as we looked at the sky
‘Everything shines with being’, Wordsworth said
I offered Jesus a drink
‘I am the water of life’, he said.
I walked in silence with Francis
‘My silence is my question’, I said
‘My silence is my answer’, he replied
I walked alone one night
With the world for my Friend
The next night I found Hafiz drunk on a bench
‘Come taste this wine!’ he called
Shams came to join us
‘I am looking for the Friend’, he sighed.
‘I love these night-time walks’, I said to Anandamaya Ma
‘Love only love’, she said
I listened to barking dogs with Abinavagupta
‘Know only knowing’, he said
‘Shhh! Don’t add anything to it’,
Sri Nisargadatta exclaimed.
I danced down the street with Mozart
I prayed in every step with Bach
I leaned with Primo Levi against a wall
Watching friends and lovers and strangers
‘Each of us’, he said ‘bears the imprint
Of a friend met along the way;
In each the trace of each’
Yeats joined us
‘There are no strangers here’, he said
‘Only friends we haven’t yet met’
And Rembrandt agreed
‘If you look at anyone for long enough’, he said
They will eventually become your friend’
I watched the sun set with Shelley one night
‘The One remains, the many change and pass’, he said
And then, as the moon arose,
‘Heaven’s light forever shines, Earth’s shadows fly;
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of Eternity,
Until Death tramples it to fragments. Die,
If thou wouldst be with that which thou dost seek!’
And last night Rumi followed me home
‘Kiss the ground with every step’, he said
‘Good night’, I said, without words. 'We
How to Change the Game
"The most important spiritual growth doesn't happen when you're meditating or on a yoga mat. It happens in the midst of conflict-- when you're frustrated, angry, or scared and you're doing the same old thing, and then suddenly you realize you have a choice to do it differently." - Anonymous from IG
Make the choice to be woke in the game. Know that Love is the essence of every scene, of every situation, of every character, even yours. Feel Love and watch the game change.

The Hidden Perfume
Remembering God is our main business, and that remembrance handles all of our other business! So all of the senses must be employed toward that end.
Up next, the sense of smell. Allow a fragrant oil (I like Jasmine Absolute in Jojoba Oil from Whole Foods) to jog your memory to reach for God, to stay tapped into Love. Or light an incense to help you stay aware of the Light in your heart. Let the worldly perfume guide you to your inner, "hidden perfume". Do what it takes to BE who you are.
"You contain within your innermost being many qualities of which you are unaware. These are like unto beautiful bottles of rare perfume which you have put away in closets and forgotten."- excerpted from Journey with the Master by Eva Bell Werber (The Hidden Perfume)
How to Manifest What You Really Want
"Your work is to relax and allow. To relax and allow, no matter what." - Abraham Hicks
"Sit in meditation not to make something happen, but to stay out of the way of what is happening." - Dr. Michael Beckwith
Stop doing 'manifestation' practices today and relax into that place inside that is already, always relaxed. Allow Love to dissolve your desires. Allow your Go(o)d to come. Surrender to Love and trust It to become all that you need and more.

The Magic of Finding Your Soul
In this bonus episode, I share the power of listening to today's full length episode (Beyond Time), while walking. The contrast of your body being in motion, and the still Center that you are, is apparent, if you know where and how to look!
"Here's the trick-- the magic of finding your soul and filling your heart: Once you find space, peer intently into it as if it was a thick fog, and you're waiting to see what will come out of it. Look into the depth and breadth of every space, and pay close attention to not only what you see, but also to what you feel. That's right, find your Eufeeling (Love) in the space between two objects. It will melt your heart. - Frank Kinslow, The Kinslow System
"Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it." - Ram Dass
