Ever worry about what people will think?


Ever worry about what others will think?


This is something that I’ve dealt with for some time, but lately I feel I’m making progress with it.


In my high school years, I adopted the attitude “I don’t care what people think”.  This human attitude is not necessarily loving or spiritual.


Instead, I’ve begun to realize God (Spirit, Life, and Truth) is the only seer, thinker, doer, and be-er.


God is Love 24/7.  God is knowing love, thinking love, being love – all the time!


Spirit is the only cause and creator, and we reflect Him/Her.  This reflection of Spirit is called man (and woman and child).  So, we only have to think, feel and see what Spirit, Love, God is thinking, feeling, and seeing.  Just like an image in a mirror.


We don’t need to worry about human opinions.


For me, this really zaps the fear or worry about what others might be thinking.  Because if it’s not happening with God and His creation then it’s not happening in reality.


And who wants to be involved in unreality?


Spending time worrying or thinking about what others might be thinking is kind of like deciding to live in a dream instead of living awake.


Now when I’m in conversation with others or thinking about someone, I see what Love is seeing and knowing about them.  Focusing on the higher self in everyone frees me.  It denies that I, or anyone, has a “self” separate from God.


We get to see our real identity – in ourselves and everyone.  Though it may take some mental discipline at first, it gets easier with practice!


Have fun with it!  ❤

What is my purpose?


What is my purpose?  Why I am here?


I think we have all had these questions.  And I know that satisfying answers can be found spiritually.


I am here to glorify God.  A friend shared with me an old Hebrew definition of the word “glory” – The reality of God’s presence coming to light.

Each of us represents the divine in a unique way.  We have spiritual qualities, talents and skills that are manifested individually.  No two snowflakes are the same and no two people are the same either.  Just like numbers.  Each one is valuable and needed.


Some might be good at math or science, business or the arts.  Some are analytical while others are more conceptual.  Each one of us is shining forth unique skills and talents of God.  And just as God isn’t limited, so we aren’t limited.


Though we might have a set of skills that we incline towards, we are also able to listen to and understand one another; appreciate another’s perspective or hardship; have the ability to live in another’s shoes, even if just for a moment.  This signifies another set of qualities: patience, compassion, humility, and love.  We all have the ability and capacity to express them.


Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is really the essential guide for living.  It includes such important lessons as – go two miles with whoever asks, not just one; love everyone and not just your friends; expand your sense of love and life; expand who you allow into your circle; pray humbly and meekly; be sincere.


These are important life lessons.  They change the question ‘what do I do?’ to ‘how should I do it?’  ‘How should I think, live, laugh, and love?’  Freely, joyfully, and fully without reservation or hesitation.


All we have to do today is express God.  In fact, we can cross off anything else on our to-do list. Or, at least, write next to it ‘how will I do this?’


Our job is to be.  It’s a beautiful and lovely job, and is so spiritual.


Enjoy being you today.  Share your unique qualities, ideas, and experiences.
