"Do not come here to steal Wisdom.

And do not steal Wisdom from Scripture and make it your own.

But go to the inner rooms of your dysentery

and find out what a thief you are."

 

Desert Spirit

"Anticipation is a curse.

It defines an outcome according to fear's direction.

Fear, then, is anticipation's maker."

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

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

 

"You want a nemesis.

You want a friend.

This is not the problem.

The problem is you want."

"Perhaps Jesus will tell you the truth about his life on this plane

 

when you stop listening to the experts."

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

"Since you are only interested in being entertained,

the Wise will use that medium to reveal the truth to you.

Will you recognize it?

Or will it continue to be merely entertainment for you?”

 

 Desert Spirit

 

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

 

“Why do you continue to look here?

Why do you continue to come here?

What do you want now?

What do you expect to get this time?

Why do you continue to seek outside yourself?

Or were you Sent here? And if so, for what reason?

Do not tell me. Find out within yourself.” 

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

 DIET means you want 'it' to die.

 

But you gave and continue to give life TO 'it'.

 

"Give yourself a mental enema.

 

Then you will not need a 'diet'."

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

“In the era of the open-minded,

 there will no longer be a need for belief systems.

Then, traditional religion, as well as the so-called 

spiritual communities will die out,

like a useless product.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

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

 

“What I experience seems to be greater than what I think.

And I think of great experiences.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

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

 

 

Corporations of the man-made world are

 more concerned about how your health will affect their business,

 rather than how their business has affected your health.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 “ ' NO FEAR ' is a condition

attempting to prove its non-existence." 

Desert Spirit

 

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

“ ' New Year Resolutions ' are for the lazy and irresponsible

who have not resolved their past conflicts." 

Desert Spirit

 

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

“Your present is not working for you

because your past is working against you

making for you a miserable future."

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

 

He said, "Life is short. Fear is your enemy."

 

I said, "So, what do you propose we do about it?"

 

He said, "Face it. Rise above it. Go beyond it. Defeat it."

 

I said, "Then, is it the enemy?"

“In the world of bodies, happiness is an idea.

It is not actual.

It is not real.

It is an idea.

 

In fact, it is the combined compromises

you have accepted for your life.”

 

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

“You are threatened by the person who you think is trying to

take away your happiness, your peace, your freedom.

 

And, given the opportunity, you would kill that person.”

 

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

"There are two very important principles that must

 be exercised in the recovery process -

 

 the first is INTERACTION WITH ANOTHER SICK PERSON.

 

In AA it is said differently -

"Contact with another alcoholic."

 

The second is UNCONDITIONAL SERVICE TO OTHERS."

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

"The known is the practical that produces

only an impractical outcome."  

Desert Spirit

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

"To Ask for what you think you want or need

is to INCREASE what you think you do not have."

Desert Spirit

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

" Christmas Spirit -

to serve Spirit by accepting the task of true gift giving."

David Ringlein

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

" Give what you need and you will never want."

Desert Spirit

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

" Eternity in Heaven is a Gift, not a goal."

Desert Spirit

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

"I who am beyond death live to kill." 

David R.

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

"Who shall save us from the well-intended,

those who want to 'save' us?"

 Desert Spirit 

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

 "If 'Jesus' is 'the way' and those who label themselves 'Christians'

are a result of that way, I shall find another way."

 Desert Spirit

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

 "What avatar would be so arrogant and so self-indulgent

that he would expect others to claim him their king and leader?"

 Desert Spirit

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

 "There is no saving what never was." 

David R.

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

"You say you do not want to hear what I have to say.

And your body follows what your mind tells it.

Yet this is the proof you HAVE heard it.

Now what will you do with it? "

Desert Spirit

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

"What has entered your mind will never leave it,

until you address it by name."

Desert Spirit

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

"If it is being promoted for entertainment

or personal gain,

it is false." 

Desert Spirit

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

"To question the motivation behind what you believe

will reveal the fact that you do not know.

Therefore what you believe is based on ignorance,

not faith or trust.

This makes the 'believing mind' the ignorant mind.

'Believers' will ignore this truth.

And the ignorant DO have faith and trust in

their ignorance."

Desert Spirit

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

" 'Believers' are followers who do not know.

They are also leaders

 who mislead the believing follower.

They are the unhealed healers."

Desert Spirit

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

"Be not content with your littleness.

And content not yourself with the idea you are not."

Desert Spirit
