“What you SEEK outside is not what you PERCEIVE outside.

But what you perceive outside IS what you seek outside.

You seek outside for peace and order,

 but are you at peace or orderly inside?

But you perceive peace and order outside

 BECAUSE you are with Peace and Order inside.”

“Has your marriage to another saved you from destruction?

Or have you been saved from the destruction of marriage to another?”

“That which you call your ‘soul mate’ is an aspect of yourself

to whom you lie,

and in turn lies to you.

 

This is why the ‘two of YOU’ get along.”

"You would not resist the undoing of the ego-thought system

unless you first thought you are an ego.

 

And you must resist the undoing of the ego-thought system

to think you are not an ego."

"You are not afraid OF. You are just afraid.

 

You are full of fear. And you have not the slightest idea even why this is.

 

Yet you protect it, being your sacred cow.

 

And with such a mind you think you can love?"

 

Oh, you love all right - you love your fear.

 

And teach it to your offspring, your 'friends' and your family.

 

Only an idiot would think such madness."

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

 

“The self-proclaimed teachers of God are those

who have failed to apply the principles of a spiritual discipline.

 

In doing so they compromise their own integrity by

interpreting, memorizing and repeating concepts.

 

They then convince themselves this is application.

 

AND SO THEY ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE

EGO

AND THE BODY

AND SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP

spiritual.

The teachers of God are not self-appointed.

Anyone who claims to be a teacher of God

is NOT

a teacher of God.

 

Desert Spirit

 

**************************** 

 

A teacher of God confide in their mind,

 have confidence within their mind

because they discovered or learned or experienced that the mind, their mind,

is not governed by the laws the mind has made up.”

Mother earth does not attempt to change humans.

She makes the adjustments within herself

and humans suffer the consequences of these changes.

“There is a vast amount of difference between

what you THINK ABOUT something,

and your DIRECT EXPERIENCE WITH something.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

“Your beliefs about my direct experiences

will keep you from directly experiencing

what you think are my beliefs.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

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

 

“When you look at and hear my words,

do you see and hear His Words

speaking to you through them?

For then you have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.”
