May I suggest that you forget the purpose of the world as the past has created it. Otherwise the future will be just like the past. Nothing but a series of depressing dreams in which all idols fail you, one by one. Where disappointment is everywhere. To change this and open up a road to hope and to release you from what had appeared to be an endless circle of despair requires just that you decide that you do not know the purpose of the world. That you have given it goals it did not have and so you try and decide what the purpose of the world has to be. You have chosen your dreams, for they are largely what you would wish for. Your idols do, largely, what you would wish from them. You have the power to ascribe to them, then pursue them vainly in your dream because you want their power as your own. Yet what are dreams but a mind asleep. Can an illusion succeed in making real the world it projects outside itself? Your path to peace can only be that of surrender to the pathway you chose for yourself on the day of your birth. May I wish you a week of tranquil surrender my friend. Your life is truly special!
As you project, so you shall perceive. The world you see is what you gave to it, nothing more than that. But though it is no more than that, it is not less. So to you it is important. It is the witness to your state of mind, the projection of your inward condition. As a man thinks, so shall he perceive. Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. Perception is a result, not a cause! May I wish you a week of clear vision and a clear mind my friend!
Who can understand a double concept, such as "weakened power" or "hateful love"? Power cannot oppose. For opposition would weaken it, and weakened power is a contradiction in ideas. Weak strength is meaningless, and power used to weaken is employed to limit. And therefore it must be limited and weak, because that is its purpose. Rejoice in your power my friend for it is limitless, accept nothing that will limit or detract from the wholeness that is you. You are powerful!
When you get to a place in the road where the fork is apparent you cannot continue as before. You must go either one way or the other. If you attempt to continue along the old path it will take you nowhere. The whole purpose of journeying this far was to make a decision about which branch you should follow and the pathway which brought you here is no longer important. Having reached this far you c
annot make the wrong decision, although you can delay. There is no part of your journey which seems to offer greater understanding of the futile than to stand where the road branches and not decide which way to go. Your intuition and understanding of your pathway has brought you here, does it not follow that it will guide you to take the right pathway? May I wish you a life filled with higher trust my friend.
It is the sharing of the evil dreams of hate and malice, sin and suffering, of pain and loss and bitterness and death that gives them reality. Unshared they can only be meaningless. The fear is gone from them, simply because you did not give them your support. Where there is no fear there can exist only love for there are only these two alternatives. Where there is only love, fear cannot exist. Where there is fear, love will struggle to take hold. Whichever you choose to share becomes all that you have. You have the one you choose to accept. This week I wish for you to share only love my friend.
Much as your ego would limit your perception of those around you to merely the physical so the Holy Spirit would show you the great rays of light shining forth from them. So unlimited that they reach to the heavens. It is this shift from blindness to vision that is the Holy Instant. Once you understand what this shift entails and what this understanding can bring, so you will become willing to se
e it as permanent. Once you can accept this as the true perception of the world we live in, it is converted into knowledge brought to you by the spirit that lives within, your spirit. By choosing to see the light within another you become open to the beautiful light that exists deep within yourself. May you, today and every day, illuminate the world with your own beautiful light my friend. You are beautiful!

Why would you not perceive it as release from your suffering to learn that you are free? To acclaim the truth, your truth, instead of looking upon it as the enemy? Why would you see a path that is so easy, so clearly marked that it is impossible to lose your direction, as thorny, boulder strewn and far too difficult to follow? Until you can realise you give up nothing where there is love, until yo
u realise where there is love there is no loss, you will always have regrets about the pathway you have chosen. You will not see the many gains your chosen pathway has offered to you. Even though you have allowed yourself to become blind to them, they are there. In your choice you have effected their cause. If their cause has been effected then they must be present. Open your eyes and particularly your heart to the miracles your chosen pathway will bring you. May your day be one full of miracles my friend.
Your perception selects and creates the world you choose to see. What you seek, you are far more likely to find than that which you would prefer to overlook. The quiet, still word of spirit within is not completely drowned out by the raucous screams and senseless ravings of the ego for those who would choose to hear it. Perception is your choice it is not fact. What you choose to hear and the sigh
ts you choose to see define entirely what or who you are. Perception is a witness to the ego's desire to show you these things, but never reality, and yet it can show you the conditions in which your awareness of reality is possible. Reality needs no cooperation from you to be itself. But your awareness of it needs your help, because it is your choice. Today my friend, let me walk with you as we each try to understand our reality and hear the gentle voice within.
The opposite of illusion cannot be disillusionment for it is truth. Only the ego, for which truth means nothing, sees these as real alternatives and different. But in truth they are the same and bring misery in equal parts whilst at the same time seeming to offer relief from the other. An illusion brings only pain and suffering hidden in the darkness of the cloaks that conceal its nothingness. Yet these cloaks of darkness hide those who seek illusion and keep them hidden from the joy of truth. Truth is the opposite of illusion because it offers you joy. What else but joy could be the opposite of misery? May I wish you a weekend filled with truth and joy my friend!
Without cause there can be no effect and yet surely without effects there can be no cause. Without the father there can be no son, this is the way of things and yet without the son there can be no fatherhood. That which you have looked at and regarded in a fixed way is but a part of an eternal circle, without cause nor effect. In every circle traveled there is no beginning nor end and whether you
 travel forward or backwards the journey will take you back to the only sure point, and that is where you stand. How you got there is a matter of perspective. If you ask the opinion of another, their understanding of the circumstances may well be different to yours and requires acceptance without judgement to see the complete picture. May I wish you a day without judgement and filled with total acceptance my friend.
In quietness all things are answered and every problem is quietly resolved. In conflict there can be no answer nor resolution, for the purpose of conflict is to make no resolution possible. What would be the right answer for you may not be the right answer for your brother. We expect there to always be an answer but with so many souls, each on their own path, it must be clear that we can answer no
thing at all. But if the source, spirit, God gave you the problem, there must be a solution! But in your state of mind, constrained by the limits of time and dimension, solution is impossible. So it follows there must be a way to reach another state of mind in which the answer is already formed. Such is the Holy Instant and it is here that all your problems should be brought, and left. Here is where they belong, as their answer is already there. Where the answer can be found, then all problems are easily resolved. It is pointless to try and solve a problem where there can be no answer. Find true peace, go within, find The Holy Instant and in that moment, removed from the constraints of time and conflict you will find your true answer. God bless you my friend and may peace be with you.

If you did not feel guilt you could not attack another, as condemnation is the root of attack. To attack another is to perceive them as unworthy of love and deserving of punishment. But herein lies the dilemma of the human soul, for the soul that judges will perceive itself as separate from the soul that it attacks, furthering the very denial of the single source of love from which we all emanate. This is an insanity which you have allowed to obscure your understanding of the truth and the love of the universe. May I wish you a day of love and free from conflict my friend.
The memory of your own spirit will come to your quietened mind. It cannot join where there is conflict, as a mind at war with itself will not remember true eternal gentleness. The way of war is not the way of love, war is not possible unless the belief in victory is cherished. For conflict or war to exist within you, you must believe that your ego has the power to be victorious. Why else would you identify with it. Quieten your mind and focus only on that love within, for therein can exist nothing else. I wish you a day filled with love and eternal peace my friend.
Would you dare to imagine what life could be like with no cares, no worries, nothing to disturb you and merely exist in perfect calm all the time? This is exactly what time is intended for, to learn to achieve that peace, always, and nothing more. Your teacher, life, cannot achieve its teaching aim, be satisfied, until peace constitutes all your learning. Peace has not fulfilled its purpose in you
r life until you are consistently learning only of peace. You may wish to replace peace with love to comprehend this understanding. When you have understood this simple truth you will no longer need further learning or further time in which to learn and you will truly be existing in the moment. I wish you a moment without time, only peace, my friend.
Nothing can give meaning where there is no meaning. Truth needs no defence merely to make it true. An illusion can have no witness and therefore no effect. Forgiveness is your only function here and will serve to bring you the joy you have created your world as an illusion to deny for you. You may choose not to see the role that forgiveness plays in ending all beliefs that rise from the mists of your guilt. Yet that guilt is used as your own tool to symbolise the separation from love that perpetuates that guilt. Break that vicious circle and bring yourself back to the safe harbour that is love, where all things are love and all is real. May I wish you a guiltless weekend my friend.
There is no time nor place where love can be absent. In love, nothing can be feared, for there can be no gap in the wholeness of a true and complete love. Fear and therefore hatred can have no place where love is present as there can be no gap in the completeness of a true love. Those who choose to see fear are certain to understand not what love means. May your day be filled with love my friend.
We constantly blame the world, our life, the kids, the wife and a thousand other conditions and people for the way we are and what we perceive to be our failings in life. We justify this by saying that without cause there can be no effect. Yet without effect there is no cause. Without you as the parent, your son or daughter could not be, yet is it not your son who gives you parenthood. Look at your lives through different eyes and from a different perspective and see just how different you can make it. Chicken and egg, or cause and effect, either way it is the perfect circle, do you have the courage to look at things differently?
To truly forgive is merely to remember only the loving thoughts you gave to others, and in return, those afforded to you. Everything else is forgotten. May your day be filled with forgiveness my friend!
The love in you inhabits not a body and yet it is within you and so it must follow that You are not within a body. What is within you cannot be outside and it must also follow that you cannot be apart from that which is at the very centre of your being. What gives you life cannot be housed in death. Seek only love and therein you will find your peace. Have a peaceful day my friend.

Be not afraid of love, for it can heal all sorrow, wipe away all tears and awaken you from the dream of pain of your own creation that you perceive as being your own reality. Reality is free of all pain. Reality is love and only one love, your love, my love, the love of all, the love of the universe; the love of God. It is time to awaken from your dream my friend.

Our world, as we perceive it, cannot have been created by spirit, because the world is not as we see it. Spirit can create only the eternal, and yet all that we see is finite and therefore perishable, so there must be another understanding beyond that which we perceive as being real. What, then, is the world that awaits our perception when we choose to become open and see it?
Remember that your ego has a purpose, just as does our spirit. The ego's purpose is fear because only the fearful can be egotistic. The logic of our ego is as perfect as is that of our spirit because we have the means to live in either as we elect. Remember that both are part of you as indeed we are of them.
Knowledge is not the motivation for learning, peace is! Peace is the prerequisite for knowledge because those who are in conflict cannot be peaceful and peace is the condition of knowledge. Knowledge will only be yours when you can truly achieve peace. We have work to do my friend!

In a state of forgiveness will you find peace. Forgiveness requires that you quietly do nothing. It doesn't try and twist your reality to conform to some preconceived condition, it merely accepts, waits and judges not. To live with no ability to forgive leaves only to judge and must therefore justify your failure to forgive. He who would forgive himself has learned to welcome truth exactly as it is. May your day be one of self forgiveness my friend
Anger always involves a projection of your own weakness. Anger cannot occur unless you believe you have been attacked and so your retaliation with anger is therefore justified and you therefore see yourself as without blame for your anger. This is as irrational a premise as the one which will inevitably follow that your brother is somehow worthy of your attack and anger rather than love. If you start with an unsound premise an unsound conclusion is the only outcome. In truth you cannot be attacked unless you believe you are worthy of that anger. Ultimately you are responsible for what you believe. May your day today be one of self belief my friend.

Forgive the length of this article but I hope you have time to read it to the end.

Another chapter has closed in the never ending story of a tragedy. I can tell you what the chapter was but the tragedy is one that most are fortunately unable to comprehend. The chapter ended with the sad demise of PC David Rathband, (one of the victims of Roald Moat in his post prison release rampage) at his own hand. Those who knew David (and I was not fortunate enough to be in that number) will be wringing their hands about what they could have done to have prevented this ending of his chapter. But the problem runs far beyond their understanding of his “Problem”. There will be many now who will condemn him for his “Selfish” actions in taking his own life through the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but it is often they who may have had within their grasp the opportunity to have prevented it. The signs were there in David’s case as he separated himself from those who loved him and then in his published Twitter posts with his brother and in interviews with respected journalists.
The tragedy’s prevention, and thousands more like it, rest in the hands of us, you and me, society and it’s ridiculous phobia of any illness which involves the mind. If someone presents themselves with a badly broken arm we will all rush to our phones to call for help, and so we should. But if someone presents themselves with a badly broken mind, few will understand what is happening and fewer will offer help other than telling them to pull themselves together. There is a bigger history of people dying from mental illness than there is of a broken arm and yet we offer far more assistance to the latter. In this latest chapter the threads go back so far and yet are all related and lead to this perhaps inevitable conclusion. Roald Moat told his doctors and his imprisoners not to release him as he was likely to kill and yet he was released and self fulfilled his own prophecy. I do not excuse his actions but who would rationally excuse those who had the opportunity to help him and so prevent what followed and will yet follow still? Those who he has left behind will be riddled with their own guilt and it will affect them throughout their own lives and we hope in not the same fashion as David, but who could ignore the possibility?
A solitary figure in the coffee shop taking perhaps a little longer over their coffee; a solitary figure on a bridge over a river, railway or road; an old man sat on a park bench; a successful high flying business man always on the go, putting together million pound deals; the party goer always the life and soul of ever party that they can get to. These are all people who could be at a point in their lives where a hand on their shoulder or even a smile of friendship would be enough to break the endless cycle of mental health issues which continue unabated in our society daily. Maybe not as high profile as Roald Moat and now David Rathband but the same tragedy is being played out daily in your community, in your family or just on the train to work every morning. We as a society owe it to ourselves to do our bit to break this endless cycle of tragedy. I am not talking about forcing help upon an unwilling recipient, merely taking time to sit and say “It looks like you are struggling, how can I help you?”. You have a heart and an intellect, use both; the intellect to see and read the signs, the heart to offer your love to a soul who will be feeling unloved or unlovable. Let the doctors deal with the medicine, we all have the ability to reverse the tragedy of any impending disaster if we chose to.
Put your hand on your heart and feel it’s beat, it is there, we none of us do enough with it, let’s make a change.....

The thought that for everything you give in this world you will always get something in return, something that is not within you, loses you your true awareness of the universe and more importantly of your own identity. You are aware of this inconsistency and yet you blame your body and your earthly existence for this oversight. You displace your guilt for this lack of foresight from your spirit to your to your body and your earthly existence. Your body does nothing that is not instructed and nothing in your material world happens that your spirit has not granted permission. Deferring guilt does not deal with it, accepting your role in your own circumstances will atone and allow your progress. May your day be filled with progress my friend

Your anger arises only from judgement of another. Judgement is an instrument of your own fear. To judge another is to give in to your fear and therefore live without love, for the two conditions cannot co-exist in your life at the same time. To live in fear denies you your true heritage of a life in peace and therefore living in a state of love. Let go of your anger and therefore fear's toxic grip, deny fear it's purchase upon your life and live only in love, in this way you will find your peace. Have a peaceful day my friend.

Sometimes, By Holding On Too Tight, You End Up Losing What You Were Trying So Hard To Save.
Soap, For Example.

To acknowledge that another has injured you in some way and yet forgive them is a paradox that normal reason cannot reconcile. By offering forgiveness you are maintaining that your brother's transgression deserves no forgiveness. By forgiving you grant your brother mercy and yet in doing so maintain the proof that they are not innocent and therefore accused. Whoever truly forgives is truly healed and in that healing lies the proof that he has truly pardoned without trace of condemnation of anything or any one. May I wish you a day filled with true healing my friend.

What waits for us in certainty beyond the veil is not your concern. We have barely started our journey towards our eventual return to the spirit world. Our lives in this world are our only concern and should occupy all of our attention. It is when we fight our purpose that life seems to endlessly kick us in the face. Accept your purpose and life becomes serene and simple once more. May your day be serene and simple my friend!

The means to meet and understand your lesson in this life comes from the same source as does the lesson itself. The Universe provides you with both the lesson and the need. Any perceived inconsistency in those two facts comes not from the Universe but from within you. Give in to the Universe and trust that all is well for you and peace will be yours. Have a peaceful day my friend.

The universe and the state for which you aim is total forgiveness. Your goal is not to live with fear but to escape from guilt and to recognise that all things must first be forgiven and then understood. May your day be without fear my friend.

If you are willing to recognise your problems, you will see that they have no power over you. Your one central problem has already been answered. The answer to finding your peace is in recognising this one problem and understanding that it has already been solved. From that moment peace is yours and you are free from all conflict. Have a peaceful day my friend.

An Australian nurse who worked in palliative care recorded the top things that dying patients regretted in their lives during their final months.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

"This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called 'comfort' of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again."

Live with no regrets my friend.

You impose limits on your true nature of infinite being. Then you get displeased to be only a limited creature. Then you begin spiritual practices to transcend these non-existing limits. But if your practice itself implies the existence of these limits, how could they allow you to transcend them.

I've noticed that when something "bad" happens to someone we like, we call it "unfortunate." But when it happens to someone we don't like, we call it "karma."

Your aim should be to unlearn the belief that you are constantly under attack. You make some attempts at kindness and forgiveness and yet often is it withdrawn and turned to attack if not returned by lavish thanks and external gratitude. Thus you perceive those gifts bestowed upon you as loans at best or an illusion to cheat you of your defence at worst. Deny your strength and weakness must become salvation to you.

‎"You know you are in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
Dr Seuss

True happiness is caused by nothing. True happiness is causeless. Has it ever occurred to you that if something causes your happiness, you will become possessive of that thing. You will become anxious, lest you lose it. If you ask the mystic why he or she is happy, the answer will be, ‘why not?’

We have become accustomed to the notion that we understand all that angers, saddens or gladdens our daily lives. This is but an illusion we create to mask the guilt we feel when we realise that our lives are anything but under our control. Rather than face our own shortcomings and insecurities we prefer instead to create and illusion and live that illusion, happy to deceive ourselves over our own fallibility. It is time to awaken from our slumber and clear the fog of illusion we have created for ourselves. Have a good day my friend.

Why would you not see it as a release from your current difficulties to know that your pathway will take you on a sure and certain path to peace of mind? Until you accept that you will lose nothing of importance to your journey when you let go and run with the wind, will you realise that you still have what was always important to you.

Gratitude is hard to understand and reconcile with our conscience. We are grateful that our lives are in some way blessed and yet we gauge that blessing by its very nature on the lack of blessing on others. Thus we are grateful for the suffering of another? Our gratitude should not be for what we have but to who gave it to us. Have a peaceful day my friend.

How willing are you to forgive those who would do you an injustice? How much do you desire peace instead of conflict? Forgiveness is the only route to peace. Forgive COMPLETELY and absolutely your transgressor and peace will be yours. Have a peaceful day my friend!

If you condemn another and judge them as unworthy of love and therefore worthy of punishment, you see yourself as separate from them. The illusion you hide behind is that you are separate from all others, when the truth is that all are connected and therefore one. Attack, condemn or punish another and you punish yourself. May your day be free from all thoughts of condemnation my friend.

Remember that you are not where you are by accident; chance plays no part in your life plan. Plan well my friend and learn what is there to be learnt in every situation.

No one attacks without an intent to cause hurt. When you attack in self defence you satisfy yourself of your safety because of your own cruelty and so you convince yourself that to hurt another brings us our own freedom. How easily and readily we deceive ourselves. May your day be truly filled with peace my friend.

Ask not for others to forgive your actions, but start by forgiving those who you see as having transgressed your own rules or wronged you. When you point a finger of accusation at another, remember, there are three more fingers in your own hand which point back towards you. When we can truly forgive, therein we will find our peace. Have a good day my friend.

Look around you and see a world full of miracles, then look inside and witness your very own miracle. The miracle of your life! Know that you have ultimate control over every thing that happens to you and therefore the ultimate ability to change it. If you would have your life be different, don't sit back and grumble or complain, stand up and take control and make today count. Have a good day my friend!

Your brother may transgress your own code of conduct, your standards, your vision of behaviour. Remember their own pathway or journey through life is critical to their own learning and this will provide their own standards and vision and the two are connected. It is your mutual journey to find acceptance and your own peace. Have a peaceful day my friend.

The energy of the universe is love and yet you show great anger at the circumstances you find yourself in day by day, hour by hour. If you attack love it will forever elude you, love is for sharing, the easiest way to find love is through love. Show love and love will find you for it is drawn to itself. Accept the universe, your universe, and you accept yourself. In this way, you love yourself and love will be drawn into your world. Allow love, the energy of the universe into your life today and start with yourself. Have a love filled day my friend.

You can only be healed when you yourself are healed. Once healed, the healing will go forth because that is it's nature. Healing takes place the moment it is offered and accepted. You cannot ask someone to get healing, but you can accept it for yourself and pass it to them. You cannot bestow upon a soul what you do not have yourself to give. May your day be full of love and light. Have a good day my friend!

Cast your mind back, cast your mind back to the start of a new relationship when the feeling of love is at it's most intense. When that feeling won't let you think of anything else, when you can't sleep, you don't eat and your heart chakra is working in overdrive. That is the minutest part of one per cent of the love that, individually, you are capable of. That is an awesome amount of energy! Use it well my friend! Have a good day.

Just because you love someone doesn't mean you have to be involved with them. Love is not a bandage to cover wounds.

Appearances deceive, but can be changed. Reality is changeless. Make it real today my friend. Have a good day!

Whether or not you are religious is determined not by who or what you believe in, but by the way you live your life. Have a good day my friend!

A message for 2012: ‘Thought is responsible for most of the suffering that we experience – and yet we can control our thoughts… – can’t we?’

It's the New Year and perhaps a time to reflect and evaluate where you are and where you are going. Do you spend too much time living in or looking at the past? Your business, your job, your car; do they bring the same value to your life today as they did yesterday. Do you maintain contact with people you no longer have anything in common with because of tradition or guilt. It's a new dawn on a new year, make it good!
