True (Truth)  Leadership

True (Truth) Leadership

All of us can help our society by holding ourselves to high standards. This does not mean holding someone accountable for what he or she said twenty-five years ago. This is unnatural and spiritually wrong. Who among us doesn’t have issues we have needed to forgive and asked to be forgiven from twenty-five years ago?

These types of issues cause an insanity that saps our energy because they bring up the feeling (from a deep layer of the emotional body) that we do not deserve to be forgiven. It costs all of us the ability to believe that life moves forward rather than backward. And when we as a society are part of the process by publicly seeing people put down because of something they said more than twenty-five years ago, we are all zapped at our core because it feeds our own feeling that we are unforgivable and cannot move forward.

That we are such an unforgiving society prevents many would-be great leaders from stepping up. We pick people to run our world whom we want to have a flawless past, so they can help humanity with its issues. Does this make sense? Wouldn’t you want a global leader who has walked through shadows, pain, challenges of life, and other problems and has proved how to do it so that he or she will not be separate from the rest of humanity? Are we naive enough to believe that a person whom we create to be separate from us by having a flawless resume’ is going to have empathy and solutions to problems that he or she is separate from?

Resume’s do not make leaders—life does. True leaders move us forward, not backward. We have problems like obesity (the slow death of the self), profanity (the slow death of energy), murdering our own (the slow and immediate death of humanity), and addiction, which takes away our present and our presents, or spiritual gifts (slow suicide), yet we are often fixated on something someone said one-quarter of a century ago.

Please, dear God, let us have our knowing becoming our growing and finally our showing.

God is a Principle

God is a Principle

God does not sit in the sky occasionally changing and re-arranging the clouds for more comfort. He doesn’t have a notepad and pen taking notes on what you and I are doing or not doing- Quite the contrary- God the Higher Power is our Collective Creative Consciousness.. The I AM of everything! 

Communication with God is Personal

Communication with God is Personal

People sometimes ask me, “How do you know when God is speaking to you? Can you really hear that voice?” These are timeless questions. Being a seeker and an observer, over the years I’ve found three discernible methods that God has used to get through to my sometimes thick head and heart. There have been…

Inherent Love

Inherent Love

My life was always instructive, though at times painful, I have lived long enough to realize that my family members could never have loved me any more than they loved themselves. Their definition of love was simply not enough to fit in my definition. Because of their lack of love, I had to discover true…

New Paradigm

New Paradigm

Sometimes it seems that out of fear and insecurity, a number of traditional philosophies do not want us to understand how easy it is for us to manifest our desires. The original sacred texts clearly taught us that we were here to live a life of miracles and magic and share our original message with…
