Whether that’s at home with family, at work, picking up your car from the impound or a loved one from the hospital, the universe directed you there. I think we can take solace in that. We might feel alone in our path, but our paths were not forged with us alone in mind – we are all one, and we are all where we should be.

There is a vast secret that many have known throughout the ages. Thousands of us are awakening to discover it for ourselves. This powerful knowledge, when applied, is enough to transform our planet into the peace on earth we all say that we want. It even transforms my life–and yours, too.
It’s simple. Too simple, some will say. Yet, in all its simplicity, it is difficult to comprehend intellectually, and far more difficult to BECOME this secret every day.
At first, as with any new idea, the automatic response is, “That’s nonsense.” As we begin to practice this secret we begin to hope it is so. This is followed by an attitude of “Let’s see if it can be done.” Then it IS done. “Why wasn’t this done long ago”
Here’s the key concept, developed in my own words:
There is only one God–one Energy Field, one Great Spirit, Allah, Power for Good, in all creation. This Power is Love, which delights in individualizing Itself in many forms, the most diverse, the better. We can use this Power. My ongoing thoughts and attitudes produce my environment.
All ancient wisdoms taught that God is All There Is, in different words. In every religion, God, or Love, expresses Truth. In all religions, philosophies–yes, even science–this One offers Himself/Herself/Itself in different ways. There is no separation between all the religions! There can be no separation between races, nations and neighborhoods, for Energy, or God, does not separate, cannot divide. God creates by uniting.
As I realize this more each day, I continue to expand my circle of love to include more and more people and ideas, no matter how weird or destructive. “He closed his circle to keep me out, but I expand my circle to bring him in,” is an old, true quote. We have an assignment, folks. We are here to create heaven on earth, wherever we are in our daily lives.
There is no separation. We are all made of “star stuff.” We are all One. Why not give unity consciousness a chance and get about our business?
Does life just “happen to you”? It’s easy to sit back and watch events unfold. If you don’t exert your creative power in life, life will express randomly in your experience-the world of Victim Consciousness. You can make life happen on your terms, but you must make a commitment. “What? No, way,” you say. “I came up here to escape commitments and the daily grind.” Lots of people seem to believe that if they make a commitment, they will have to do something that they don’t want to do, right? Not true!
Here’s a better way of understanding commitment. Commitment is a way of choosing what you want to do and focusing your power to make it happen. It is one of the most effective techniques you can use in making your life happen on your terms.
I define commitment as the focusing of my personal power. And what is personal power? That amount of universal energy which I can access at any given moment.
You can access your personal power and create the world you want!

Know Yourself as Eternal, Non-changing and Absolute
As we walk through life we see the constant change around us as everything follows its natural life cycle. Our body is no exception; it is constantly changing growing and evolving. Yet the person within the body, that silent witness to all we experience, has an eternal quality of something much greater and more permanent that who or what we think we are.
In our quite moments when we are walking or sitting with nature, our feelings reach out and connect and touch a deeper layer of our heart and soul. We become in union with that hidden force that orders the whole of creation. We can be one with this field of love, this presence of the divine, which is within us and surrounding us in each moment of our lives.
All we need to do is just be present and our awareness will naturally settle and become one with its divine nature. We leave behind our physical nature and connect with that presence of love that underlies the physical. We connect with our true Self the silent witness to our life and experiences.
That which was never born can never die. Our true self is the eternal continuum of life itself. What happens in our life is here just for a few moments; we are connected to the whole of life. We can choose any experience we wish to have in each moment, just by choosing that experience with the next breath we take.
You have come to earth for a divine purpose, to have an experience and to create your dreams with your imagination. Next time you are out in nature take the time to reflect on what your dream is? What you have chosen to create in this lifetime. Ask yourself what your true nature is? Like any plant in the garden we are all unique. We have come into this world with a specific DNA a blue print for life. A rose can only grow into a rose, a daisy a daisy. What is your nature?
We surround ourselves with a loving nurturing atmosphere. We are here to grow and develop jus t like the plants in the garden. We have been allocated a life cycle, just like the plants. This is not a dress rehearsal it is life itself.
What is your dream? What is your passion? What difference do you want to create and express in this lifetime? We are all different we all have a different nature and a different dream to live.
We are not here to copy anyone, we are here to express our nature and live our dream and be the finest example of who and what we wish to create in this lifetime.
So next time you are feeling connected to your soul and at peace with the whole Universe. Allow your higher Self to guide you, on your path to your true destiny. Dream your dream, and live your life expressing your joy and blossoming into your full nature.

We all have times when we just don’t think we can do it.
As you practice believing in yourself, the most important thing is to never give up.
You’ll inevitably encounter obstacles, but it’s how you react to them that matters.
