One of the many moments when I just knew….

One of the many moments when I just knew….

I was twenty years old when a friend invited me to Unity Church in Greenville, South Carolina. For the first time in my life, I heard someone say, “You are God’s beloved child with whom God is well pleased.” I cried all day and all night after hearing that. I decided that day to stop dying, at least in the way I had been mentally treating myself. Someone actually found me lovable:

God loved me. I knew this, but no one had ever said it to me. I had lived my whole life trying to prove that God did not make a mistake when I was created, and I would live long enough to understand that there is a big difference between making a mistake and being one. When all the people who surround you have an outdated, constricted version of God, you start to deny your natural intuition after a while.

I am so grateful to Don Bliss for thinking enough of me to introduce me to a place that practiced a true connection to God. This was the start of true bliss for me and was a key factor in my being found. Knowing that I was God’s beloved with whom God was well pleased stopped the cycle I was living every day of wanting to die rather than live. I know had I not found this way of living, I would not have found a way to live.

Twenty years of waiting to be validated and recognized is a very long time.

Breaking Patterns That No Longer Work

We will always have one common thread on our journey: who we are being and what we are becoming. Those who continue to repeat everything will have the same everything they say they no longer want. Do you have any repetitive patterns in your life? If so, what are they? Where did these patterns begin, and what actions…

Why is Change Hard?

Why is Change Hard?

We often are determined to make change hard. I once saw a couple that was having major problems because the wife did not want to clean the house and the husband did not think it was his job. Except for this one thing, they told me, they were very happy. I said to them, “You…

The Kingdom is Yours

The Kingdom is Yours

Being angry and disconnected from the Creator who gave you life is like having a parent who, unbeknownst to you, is very, very rich. You have denied yourself a relationship with this parent all your life, and one day you realize that you could have inherited amazing riches had you been willing to open your…
