“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, 
which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail 
to keep a man in everlasting ignorance that principle is 
contempt prior to investigation.”

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
We must become acquainted with our emotional household: 
we must see our feelings as they actually are,
not as we assume they are.
This breaks their hypnotic and damaging hold on us.
What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.
Maintaining my spiritual condition is like working out every day, planning for the marathon, swimming laps, jogging. It’s staying in good shape spiritually, and that requires prayer and meditation. The single most important way for me to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power is to pray and meditate. I am as powerless over alcohol as I am to turn back the waves of the sea; no human force had the power to overcome my alcoholism. Now I am able to breathe the air of joy, happiness and wisdom. I have the power to love and react to events around me with the eyes of a faith in things that are not readily apparent. My daily reprieve means that, no matter how difficult or painful things appear today, I can draw on the power of the program to stay liberated from my cunning, baffling and powerful illness.

The mind is a magnet and we attract that with which we identify the self. 
In order to get the most out of life we must learn consciously to change
many of our habitual thought patterns. 
This is not easy, for our old thought patterns cling to us with great tenacity, 
but, being thought patterns, they can be reversed. 
If you are filled with fear, refill yourself with faith, for faith always overcomes fear.
Ernest Holmes

When I got here it  was a hell of a lot better
than that TV I sat in front of all day.

Everyone needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play in and pray in,
where Nature may heal and cheer and give
strength to body and soul alike.
Every tree and plant in the meadow seemed to be dancing, 
those which average eyes would see as fixed and still.
ACIM Workbook Lesson 326 Insights
“I am forever an Effect of God.”
As I go through my day, let me remember that “I am forever an Effect of God.” This thought reminds me that I am still as God created me. Nothing has changed. Illusions of individuality cannot change the Truth of what we all are.
I open my mind to the Holy Spirit today and ask that the Light of Truth shine away all the false ideas I have been holding on to. I am willing to follow God’s plan of awakening. I am willing to let my mind be healed today. Let me apply this remembering to every circumstance I encounter in the dream today. I choose to let today be a day of mind healing. I choose to remember that “I am forever an Effect of God.” I choose to be happy instead of right.
The world is transformed when forgiveness is complete, when all illusions have been let go. This transformed world is seen for an instant and then disappears as we awaken in the Heaven that is our Home. Once again we see that forgiveness is the key to release from insane dreams of separation, suffering, pain, loss and death.
The Holy Spirit eagerly awaits our gifts of fear and guilt, judgment and grievances. To Him they are gifts, because when we turn them over to Him, He can exchange them with the gift of Christ’s vision, of peace and happiness and Love. This is His purpose. Our gifts of judgment, guilt and fear He recognizes as illusions and thus to Him their only purpose is that they are an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to give us His blessing in return. He is a Friend indeed. He takes our gifts of pain and transforms them with His Love to gifts of blessing.
Today I dedicate to practicing giving all my thoughts to Him so that I may receive His blessings, which shine on me and show me my Self. His blessings reveal the truth in me and all my brothers. And so I gladly give my gifts of illusions and receive the truth. Thus I will remember, “I am forever an Effect of God.”

The Resurrection of Jesus, and His Ever-Living Presence 
Resurrection has been well understood by accomplished yogis of India since the dawn of the highest ages. Jesus himself was a realized yogi: one who knew and had mastered the spiritual science of life and death, God-communion and God-union, one who knew the method of liberation from delusion into the kingdom of God. Jesus showed throughout his life and death his power of complete mastery over his body and mind and the oft-recalcitrant forces of nature. We understand resurrection in its true sense when we comprehend the yoga science that clearly defines the underlying principles by which Jesus resurrected his crucified body into the freedom and light of God….
No other science has detailed the descent of the individualized consciousness of God as the soul into man and its evolutionary and spiritual ascent back into Spirit. In this modern age, Kriya Yoga has been brought forward after being lost in the dark ages, as a definite method to hasten the spiritual evolution of human consciousness and open the inner cerebrospinal pathway of ascension, releasing the soul through the spiritual eye into the kingdom of the Holy Ghost, the Christ Consciousness, and the Cosmic Consciousness of God the Father.
