The word “within” is unnecessary. The kingdom of heaven is you. – ACIM
We are God’s own creation, within and without. All that we see, experience and are, is God’s stuff. If we can buy this idea, then what can we be afraid of? We’re here on a grand adventure that takes us all the way home. And we get closer to the Truth when we can banish fear and become love. That’s when the adventure can truly begin!
Teach only love, for that is what you are. – ACIM
Teaching something in the Course’s lingo means to model and exhibit that quality. Teaching love means to become love, which is our very essence. And when we ‘do’ that, we awaken the love-filled center of the ‘other’. The torch of love is thus passed on limitlessly. Turns out, that’s our only real purpose here on earth, to teach love, to become it.
Just laugh. – Papaji
Life means for us to just be happy. And what better way to be happy than by just laughing? Laughing boosts our immune system, relieves pain, reduces depression and lengthens our lives! More importantly while we’re laughing, we’re not generating thoughts and therefore are fully present in the here and now!
You need offer only undivided attention. Everything else will be given you. – ACIM
We’re distracted by our creations that surround us. While it can be fun and games, it’s also a house of cards, it’ll eventually all come crashing down. So how do we seek and become the permanent, that which always is? How do we come back home? By only seeking and putting our constant attention on that which is, here and now.
Start by being in love and end in becoming love. – Osho
Becoming love must be our only goal. Might sound preposterous in the wake of life as we live it on this planet! What about making a living and safety for my family, you might ask? Here’s the thing, if God exists and if we have even an ounce of faith in his providence then we must do only what matters. Only love matters. We must become love.
Resign now as your own teacher. – ACIM
We think we know what’s going on. And we act as though we know what to do with our lives. The truth is that we have no real clue. We live in an illusory maze of a world. We must give up all pretense of knowing and become like children so that we can get back to safety, at home, with our divine parent. Our divine teacher is ever available to help us when we’re ready.
All power is within you. Stand up and express the divinity within you. – Vivekananda
We are children of the Divine! Breathe in and fully comprehend what this means. We are children of the Divine, bears repeating. We’re invulnerable and eternally safe from any harm whatsoever. Let’s throw off the coat of fear and rise-up in the powerful exuberance of a son and daughter of God!
