I know how it works in ego land.
I demand something I think is rightfully mine, like a favor you cannot refuse me.
If you give me what I want, I win, you lose.
If you don’t, you are guilty of my disappointment and loss, while I am the wholly innocent victim of your cruelty. I win, you lose. …

God did not create the world. We are doing that, constantly, every moment again, without even realizing it.
We project our loveless thoughts immediately and unconsciously outside the mind, making it seem as if a horrible world exists outside of us …

Everything exists for us only when it is somehow thought, felt, imagined, or perceived in our mind. We usually think the world exists outside our mind, which is supposed to live as a brain in the body, but we do not have any independent evidence for that. …

I am not a victim of my past, unless I choose to let the ego run my mind — which is what I usually do because the ego does not want me to remember that I really have a choice in lending the power of my mind — the immeasurable strength of my belief — to either the fear of ego or the Love of God. …

It makes perfect sense to me that a non-dual spiritual teaching like “A Course in Miracles,” which tells me that “I am not a body,” does not make use of the body for meditation purposes. My body nevertheless reflects the peace of mind acquired during meditation by feeling relaxed and deeply at rest. …

The ego thrives by hiding an ugly truth from us: we need suffering and pain in order to sustain our belief in the separation from God – our Oneness in Heaven.
Our painful existence ‘proves’ that Heaven is an illusion, that God, if He exists, must be a very cruel person indeed. …

I still believe there is a meaning to life beyond mere physical existence. And I believe true happiness is not only possible but absolutely natural.
It cannot be achieved or found because in reality it is what we already and forever are. …

The mind creates a world of time and space but the mind does not live in time or space.
The mind is not a linear process, it doesn’t follow a path, it never changes. Change is the first illusion, and every form of fear depends on it. …

I think “Living in the Moment” is a state of mind that we are blissfully not aware of when we’re really in it. If we know we’re in it, we’re really out of it, because then we are divided in thought. …

We exist here by the grace of our thoughts.
We perceive only what we project on a deeper level of mind.
The power of mind makes it all seem totally real but it is not reality. …
