    Thought for the Day
    (Part I)

    When you recognize the anguish
    and suffering of a mind that is in conflict with itself,
    be not deceived by the ego's interpretation of it,
    for it is always wrong and its solutions
    will only serve to steer you deeper
    into the hell realm of its world.

    Mistaking the illusion of freedom
    and a conflict-free mind that arises
    each time you choose to tuck your tail in and run
    because the ego is sorely vexed
    is merely an attempt on your part
    to turn to magic and a dreamside solution.

    Anything that sets the ego on its heels
    should be lauded, not censured.

    And if you think that the ego screams less
    when you become aware of the nearness of God
    you've got another thought coming.

    And that is the problem, is it not,
    thinking?

    You can never outrun yourself.

    Thought for the Day
    (Part II)

    Return to the thoughts and practices
    of the previous two days and be you free,
    oh holy Son of God.

    War and peace abide within you
    because you have invited them both there.

    Free yourself by facing yourself,
    not by reacting and running away.

    Exiting center stage of your life
    in favor of a different stage
    will not successfully evict
    the tenant you now hope to eliminate.

    When and where has changing
    playmates, playthings and playpens
    ever really worked out for you
    or anyone else, for that matter?

    ***

    Prayer for the Day

    Help me, Lord,
    help me.

    For I can no longer abide
    this pain.

    Amen

    Thought for the Day
    (Happy Birthday Sharifa!)

    Sunday is practice day.

    Be very present to your life today.

    Notice how often boredom,
    unsatisfactoriness, anger, frustration,
    feeling unseen, unappreciated
    and therefore unhappy
    become your motivation to try to fix things,
    to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic,
    or to simply back off emotionally,
    shut down or walk away.

    Repeat the following mantra
    silently to yourself as you breathe deeply
    and move closer energetically to what is
    unfolding for you:

    "There is no place on God's green earth
    that is better than right here."

    This is all.

    You have spent your entire life
    trying to get out of what you could never be in
    in the first place, and trying to get into
    what you could never be out of.

    What a colossal waste of the precious NOW!

    Thought for the Day

    There are but three simple steps
    to leave content and return to context.

    (1) Realize that no one is capable
    of making you feel anything
    but you. Never ever lose sight of this. Own it.

    (2) Recognize that ego cannot get out of ego.
    How can a by-product of the mental process
    get you out of the mental process?

    (3) Remember that the only way
    out of an illusion is to recognize
    that you were never in it in the first place.
    It is not nor has it ever been you.

    Here is the prescription
    for dropping back into the spaciousness
    and isness of the present moment.

    Prayer for the Day

    Thought for the Day
    (Part I)

    Listen well, for here is a major cause
    of human misery.

    Every conversation in which you engage
    is seen by you as a means to make yourself special
    and to get your needs heard.

    Whenever and wherever
    two people enter into a relationship
    to find the love, belongingness
    and understanding for which their hearts
    have always yearned, neither of them
    is actually doing any listening to the other.

    Is it any wonder, then,
    that virtually all relationships
    are doomed to failure from the very start?

    The healing of your mind is commensurate
    to how willing you are to see
    that the soul purpose of all conversation
    is for you to begin listening to you
    and doing just that.

    Just that. No other agenda. Nothing else.

    There is absolutely no one on this planet
    who is in need of hearing what you have to say
    about anything whatsoever but you.

    ***

    Prayer for the Day

    Well, I feel sufficiently
    put in my place.

    It may be difficult to hear,
    but it is extremely liberating
    nonetheless.

    It's time for specialness
    to dry up and die on the vine.

    Amen

    Thought for the Day

    When you are coming from the perspective of ego
    or the separate self, there is no amount of attention,
    reassurance, validation, support or comfort
    anyone can offer you that will ever be enough
    to quell the self-doubt, the bottomless well
    of feelings that scream between your ears
    that you are unsupported, that you are not truly seen,
    and in truth, that you are deeply misunderstood.

    Ego never thinks that anyone ever
    really and truly listens to it.

    But when you are not coming from the perspective
    of ego or the separate self, you realize that
    it is no one's job to listen to you
    but yours. Because of this,
    you never seek these things
    from anyone else...
    ever.

    Prayer for the Day

    Ego, when clearly seen,
    is thoroughly repulsive in its neediness,
    its impassioned cries of victimhood,
    and it behaves like an obnoxious two-year old,
    believing itself to be the center
    of the universe, demanding to have
    its own way.

    How could anyone possibly
    find that attractive, like ever?

    I'm done.

    I'm not sure of where
    or how to go from here,
    and perhaps knowing that
    is entirely unimportant...
    only to know beyond all shadow of doubt
    that I'm done.

    Lead me to clear seeing,
    that I might bask forever
    in the light of the great I Am.

    Amen

    Thought for the Day
    (Part I)

    To the ego or separated self,
    the concept of inner and outer
    is very very important.

    So deeply do you protect your inner life,
    seeking but to insulate yourself---your innermost being
    from an outer world that would surely eat you alive
    if you were to let your guard down
    and give it the slightest wisp of a chance
    to hurt you, which it would most surely do,
    were you to be naked, vulnerable, tender, open,
    and deeply honest on purpose---and by thus,
    allow yourself to be truly seen and known
    and hated for all you fear yourself to be.

    It is difficult to accept at first
    that they are exactly the same thing---
    that there is no difference between
    inner and outer.

    So in the end, whether you are someone
    who always sees the problem as outside
    or one who sees the trouble within
    makes absolutely no difference
    to anyone whatsoever
    but you.

    Thought for the Day
    (Part II)

    Therefore, little one, hold on.
    Stop the presses.

    Listen carefully, for I SEE you---
    better than you can see yourself.
    And regardless of what you fear,
    I LOVE you completely.

    What if I were to tell you
    that never again do you have to waste
    a single instant of your time or an ounce of life force
    trying to figure things out
    either for yourself, or for anyone else in this life
    for that matter?

    That from here on out,
    your only duty is to greet every experience
    with an open heart and your loving
    attention?

    This is all, beloved one,
    for such it truly is.

    Prayer for the Day

    Thank you, thank you, thank you

    Thought for the Day
    (Part I)

    A new mantra is given you:

    "Catch and release."

    Is there ever an instant when a wave
    is not a part of the ocean?

    Is there ever a moment when
    thoughts, feelings and experiences
    can be seen as something other than
    passing movements within the vast expanse
    of consciousness itself against an endless
    backdrop of the eternal NOW? What is this need you seem to have
    to make such a big deal
    out of everything?

    What is is it supposed to be quietly observed;
    allowed to rise and then fall
    without your constant interference.

    LOOK at what you are doing
    to yourself.

    Thought for the Day
    (Part II)

    LOOK at what you are doing
    to this world!

    In what universe could this behavior
    be considered as environmentally
    conscious?

    LOVE, my dears,
    is the only way to TRUTH.

    ***

    Prayer for the Day

    I need to do a control-alt-delete;
    time for a total system reboot.

    I got so far out into the weeds
    of my crazy mind that I didn't even realize
    that I was lost---so attached to the belief
    that I was right.

    Here is my little willingness
    to practice catch and release.

    Amen
