Part I

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

"In your study of Sacred Words,

does He teach you to memorize passages?

And then send them to others?

What kind of Teacher would do that?

For in doing so you make Him a very poor Teacher.

Does He say to you,

'Send him this passage, and then this one,

and then that one on that page,

and maybe he will ‘get’ it'?

Is that what He is saying to your mind?

For that is what your actions reveal."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"If you do not have your own wisdom to impart

you will send out long passages - quoted things –

because you have no mind of your own.

If you memorize and quote the Wise to get your point across,

then you are a thief. You steal His Words,

claim Them as your own,

and then offer Them to others,

thinking you are ‘teaching’ something."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

1.      In order to go beyond concepts application is essential.

2.      To go beyond the concept that ‘ the Course goes beyond concepts ’ one must apply.

3.      To go beyond the concept of ‘One must apply’ requires an experience

through which one is Given the Opportunity

to exercise the right use of one’s mind’s power.

4.      To ‘not see error’ is to have made the correction of error within oneself.

5.      To extend the experience of the correction of error within oneself

is NOT projection of error but Revelation of its correction.

6.      To apply the seeing of no error is to reveal one’s own experience

with the correction of error.

7.      The correction and extending of healed perception will be a threat TO

those who are unhealed,

just as a recovered alcoholic is threatening to an active alcoholic.

8.      Intervention into the unhealed will produce violence, terror,

reaction and resistance in the unhealed that will result

in the condemnation OF what is offered in the intervention.

Give your money to the poor and follow Me

and I will make you fishers of men

must imply those who ask for donations from you must be

the poor to whom you are Asked to give your money."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"Who authorized the donation requestors to ask you for money,

so that they might make telling you about God their livelihood?

They travel about, speaking to you about God, about Jesus,

about the Holy Spirit. And you pay for it. Why?

Will THEY pay YOU, who are bound to a job, to do the same thing?"

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The debt you owe your brother

in not a donation to the so-called

'spiritual communities' that make you

dependent on them. "

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"If it is Written, Love your enemies

and Satan is your enemy,

then you must love Satan."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"He who points our errors he perceives in you is not projecting.

He is revealing to you what you have failed to see.

This makes him your savior and you owe him deep gratitude."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"One's FIRST PRIORITY is the removal of blocks,

within oneself. This you cannot do because

you have forgotten how you made them.

And you know not where they are

because you have hidden them.

So Spirit sends a brother to you to assist you in this task. "

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

" ' I have blocked your email ' " is not the right use of your mind power.

He who lives and applies Principles of Truth

would never say or do such a thing."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"A major obstacle, a major block, an iron

curtain of seeming impenetrable power,

a most deceptive illusion your mind will ever have

to penetrate in this lifetime is

organized religion.

It is on the planet for one purpose - to keep you from discoverying the

Divine Potential within you

and Its Purpose you have come to fulfill on this plane."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

" ' Free will ' is reckless and undisciplined ego/self-reliance.

' Free will ' is what believers rely on to justify their arrogant refusal to follow Guidance.

' Free will ' is a defense against the truth freely used to exercise this privilege."

Desert Spirit

*****************************************************************

Love your enemies

means the enemies INSIDE you,

not OUTSIDE you.

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"To perceive another attacking you is proof you lack Vision.

Otherwise you would see it is a Challenge Spirit is proposing you accept

to overcome your desire to be a victim."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"Your pitiful world is one that

surrounds you with what you call ‘ like-minded ’ beings,

and reject anyone who threatens your peace ’."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The deceived do not know that they are,

and refuse to question the possibility."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"If in the Final Analysis the Question that

must be answered is,

What was your contribution?,

what will your answer be?

For it cannot be self-defined."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"Do not waste time wasting time,

and do not waste my time."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

PART II

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Supposedly it was written that Jesus said,

Father forgive THEM, for they know not what they do

and not,

  Father forgive me for pissing them off.

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The Universe is Arrogant. 

It challenges our pride and brings us to humility.

The wise understand this and are never humiliated by it."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The greatest tragedy of your earthly journey will be that

 you will come to the end of your time on this plane

and not even realize you never saw my spirit,

because you never saw your own."

 Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"I am not here to tell you how to use your power.

 I am here to show you how you use your power."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The complacent accept what they are unwilling to change."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"Do you think you can ask God to help you but not change yourselves

 by taking upon the inner journey of healing and correction of the mind?

God is like a fine set of clothes -

if you think you will look good wearing them while you have not even bathed,

you are not going to be allowed to wear the fine clothing.

You will be expected to bathe first."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"If it is written, Resist not evil,  then that which we do not resist

becomes the very thing that provides protection from it.

We are therefore not protected FROM it

but protected BY it."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The tragedy of life is being filled with a Music that no one can hear."

Desert Spirit

 

*********************************************************

"I represent Love, or Its absence.

If I am seen as Love's absence, I will be feared.

Who, then, will teach me of Love?

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

DEFINITIONS OF FEAR

1. My active refusal to rightly use my power for healing.

2. The acceptance of my power to do WITH me and TO me what I dislike,

 over which I think I have no control.

3. My desire applied to my refusal to reclaim my power for Joy's use."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"There are many worlds, many vibrations, many dimensions.

Limit not your imagination to such a small opinion of yourself,

that you might begin to see the Depth of your own Being."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"How might I learn I am free of all the iniquities of this level,

this dimension, this plane of time, space and distance?

Would I but ask a single question:

Were I to pass from here in this hour,

might I leave without sorrow,

regret, without a longing, without a sense of fear and loss?

For only then can I say I am truly a being of light,

no longer a prisoner of darkness."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"The symbol of the cross is the unification of the spirit mind and body.

The vertical plane, the path of the spirit mind,

intersects the horizontal plane in its rise to Oneness.

The horizontal plane, the physical level, is where this is defined.

Vertical plane/horizontal plane intersection brings into alighment

the spiritual mind and the physical body.

The perfected integration of the two planes is the balance of polarities,

the equalization of positive and negative energies.

This balancing of the two is termed 'peace'."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"How much greater is the service that asks one

to be the Cheetah's meal?

And who will remember this when one feels

one HAS become the Cheetah's meal?"

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"Spiritual ego is very difficult to undo.

Avoid the pitfalls of the unhealed healer."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"If the impossible is possible, then so must be its undoing."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

" 'I am a student' is not a student,

and uses such a premise to avoid true apprenticeship.

'I am a teacher' is a hoax pretending to not be."

Desert Spirit

*********************************************************

"One cannot enter the Boundless UNTIL

one has penetrated one's own barriers."
