Letting Go Into Unlimited Abundance

Today?s Quotes:

?Abundance is a process of letting go; that which is empty can receive.?
? Braynt Mcgill

?Dada, if you do not make it empty, how are you going to fill it up again??
? Maharajji

?? become nothing, and He?ll turn you into everything.?
? Rumi

?If you think you are big, you become small.  If you know you are nothing, you become unlimited.?
? Sadhguru

?The longer you can linger in that field of infinite possibilities as an awareness?aware that you are aware in this endless black space?without putting your attention on your body, on things, or on people, places, and time, the longer you invest your energy into the unknown, the more you are going to create a new experience or new possibilities in your life.  It?s the law.?
? "Becoming Supernatural" by Dr. Joe Dispenza

?Come to Nothing, find everything.?
? J.C. Amberchele

Bonus Quotes:

?By allowing ourselves to relax, we begin to naturally fall into a state of subtle gratitude and humility.  Similarly, relaxation fills us with strong feelings of peaceful resignation, of momentarily not seeking or wanting anything.  In such a comfortable state of not trying, ironically, we become the human definition of natural wealth, and are much more capable of receiving what we desire.?
? Relax More, Try Less: The Easy Path to Abundance by Tim Grimes

Definition of Awareness from Michael Langford:  "When you wake up from sleep, awareness is that consciousness that woke up from sleep.  Thoughts come and go.  The background of awareness does not come and go.  The background of awareness is continuous during all of your waking hours until you go back to sleep again.  Awareness is you, your consciousness, just your awareness that is looking through your eyes right now.  The words awareness, consciousness, attention, observing, watching, looking, seeing all have the same meaning here.  Awareness is that which is conscious of thought or conscious of the absence of thought. Both when there are thoughts and when there are no thoughts the background of awareness is aware. "

Today?s Practice:

Try the meditation I share from Michael Langford?s, ?The Direct Means to Eternal Bliss? called the ?Abandon Release Method?(pg. 72) of letting go of everything except for your awareness.  Stay as that formless, bodiless, timeless awareness, today.  Be in the world as That, today, watching the appearance of the body in the world.   And from that Awareness, you'll watch the appearance of the Christ, of Love, of infinite  abundance. 

I Love you,

Breathe In The Light

This short but powerful meditation is inspired by Ram Dass' book, Paths to God, in which he shares the way that Muktananda would meditate on his spiritual guru, Nityananda. 

Today's Quotes:

?Whether you worship Christ, Krishna, Kali, or Allah, you actually worship the one Light that is also in you, since It pervades all things.? ? Anandamayi Ma 

"God is in all men, but not all men are in God. This is why we suffer." - Ramakrishna 

Today's Practice:

Imagine God or your favorite spiritual messenger is seated in front of you.  Breathe them into your heart.  Breathe in their Light. Breathe in the Love that they are.  Become aware of this Love filling your entire being.  And then move, speak, and act from this Love.  Keep returning to this felt-Love.  Let It be your new baseline.  Be this Light, today and always.  

I Love you, 
Nik
[email protected]

p.s. This Light makes the body relax and at the same time, sit or stand up straighter.  It makes it sway with a smile on its face.  It makes it want to do Go(o)d deeds for 'others'.  It makes that body love everyone.

The Case of the Stolen Car - How to Practice the Presence of God

In today's bonus episode I share a listener's email about her stolen car and how she used the situation as an invitation to practice Love.  I also share a similar personal experience from 2018 and a recent, anger provoking one from this past weekend.  

Today's Quote:

"You have to ask yourself the question, "who am I?"   This investigation will lead in the end to the discovery of something within you which is behind the mind. Solve that great problem and you will solve all other problems." - Ramana Maharshi 

If you treat every seeming problem as an opportunity to 'let go', as an opportunity to practice abiding in Truth, then that Truth will be expressed as a solution. Some way, some how, every time, you remember that it's all Go(o)d, and then, It Is. 

I Love you and I'm with you, 
Nik

p.s. Got Go(o)d News? Got an example of how this Love is moving in your life? Email me and I'll share, here! Let's keep each other inspired!  [email protected]

Breathing Life Into Your New Life

Today's Quote:

"To be conscious of the breath means that no thoughts can be allowed, because thoughts will distract your attention. Buddha never says, "Stop thinking." He says, "Breathe consciously." Automatically, thinking will stop; you cannot both think and breathe consciously. When a thought comes into your mind, your attention is withdrawn from the breathing. A single thought and you have become unconscious of the breathing process.

Buddha used this technique. It is a simple one, but a very vital one. He would say to his bhikkhus, his monks, "Do whatsoever you are doing, but do not forget a simple thing: remember the incoming and the outgoing breath. Move with it, flow with it."

The more you try to do it, the more you endeavor to do it, the more conscious you will become. It is arduous, it is difficult, but once you can do it, you will have become a different person, a different being in a different world." - Osho 

Today's Practice:

Allow everything that happens today to happen in the flow of your breath.  Stay conscious of your breathing today.  Don't forget to feel for it.  Make it primary, and everything else secondary.  It's your anchor.  It's always here.  Always now.  Just as God Is.  Just as Love is.  Just as you are.  You are breathing life into your new life. Trust this. 
Smile. 
Give thanks. 

I Love you, 
Nik

We Have Everything We Need

Cue "Everything We Need" by Kanye West ... for real, play this song before or after catching up with me, to catch up with and Be Love. 

"We begin after the storm inside..." - Anthony Clemons (from "Everything We Need")

Reflect on the feeling of Freedom.  
Then drop the word and stay with that wordless Go(o)d feeling... the presence of Freedom. The "I Am" that I Am, the "I Am" that you are.
Feel It, and know It to be all things.  
The more you practice being aware of It, the more you love It, the more you trust It, thank It, sing to It, smile to It... the more you'll see It showing up as everything you need and more. 
Smile. 
Breathe. 
Don't leave this knowing, today.
Don't forget God, today.    
Be Love, now to be free, now.  

I Love you, 
Nik

You Didn't Come This Far To Only Come This Far

Today's Quotes:

"You didn't come this far to only come this far." - Unknown 

"How to get rid of the lower self: The blossom vanishes of itself as the fruit grows, so will your lower self vanish as the divine grows in you.??Ramakrishna

"What is happening to you is nothing less than death and rebirth. What is dying is the entire way in which you understood ?who you are? and ?how it all is.? What is being reborn is the child of the Spirit for whom things all are new. This process of attending an ego that is dying at the same time as you are going through a birth process is awesome. Be gentle and honor him (self) who is dying as well as him (Self) who is being born."- Ram Dass, 'Be Here Now'

Bonus Quote:

"When you have started on the path to God, proceed, do not stop. He will take care of you."  
- Neem Karoli Baba

Today's Practice:

The one that didn't want to get out of bed this morning? The one that's uninspired and not excited about a new week... don't try to fix that one. Don't try to change that one.  See through that one.  Feel through that one, to the real One, to the Truth, to Love.  

When you stay aware of the real One, a new concept of 'you' is born.  A doper version of 'you' is born.  That's the discomfort you're feeling.  Expect it.  Give thanks for it. Breathe through it. Smile through it. You remembered what you are and your new life is here. 

I Love you,

"I will forgive, and this will disappear."

Today's Quotes:

"These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its form.  These are the words with which temptation ends, and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more. These are the words which end the dream of sin, and rid the mind of fear.   These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world.

Shall we not learn to say these words when we are tempted to believe that pain is real, and death becomes our choice instead of life?  Shall we not learn to say these words when we have understood their power to release all minds from bondage?  These are words which give you power over all events that seem to have been given power over you. ?You see them rightly when you hold these words in full awareness, and do not forget these words apply to everything you see or any brother looks upon amiss." - A Course in Miracles Lesson 193

"All the negatives of your life are like riding down the road spiked with nails.  Every day is another road, and the way you ride down that road is to realize one divine life without opposite.  I am looking at a road that is not there." - Herb Fitch

"You see the world
And you try to dissolve it.
But the master has no need to
He is without desire. 
For though he sees,
He sees nothing."
-The Ashtavakra Gita, Heart of Awareness

"Every appearance that comes to us from morning to night, or from night to morning, regarding the human scene needs treatment... Do not be satisfied to accept even a good human appearance, but translate that, too, into the spiritually real of which the good is but the form." - Joel Goldsmith

Today's Practice:

Keep remembering, 

"I will forgive, and this will disappear."  

I will feel Love, and this will disappear. 

I will know 'only Love is here', and this will disappear. 

I will know 'only God is here', and this will disappear. 

I will forgive my misperception of God's presence, and this will disappear. 

Keep forgiving yourself for judging by appearances.  Keep forgiving yourself for believing in this world.  You forgive the instant you remember God... the moment you pause and feel for the Silent-Love. Forgiveness is allowing the Love you are to flow into the scene... into the world appearance.  Feeling Love while moving through the world disappears problems. Love is the solution you've been looking for.  It is the miracle.  And It is you.  Which means It's here, now.  Smile :)  

I Love you,

The Past Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Repeat: ?This box is now too small for the person I?ve become.  I?m giving myself permission to live a bigger life that includes sudden miracles, and unexpected blessings.  I deserve this newfound state of freedom where my soul is unobstructed.  I am open, willing, and ready to let my spirit explore the endless ways in which I can be happy and at peace.  I am putting this box aside. I?ve outgrown my past.? 
- via IG @lawofattractionlive 

?Destroy your house, and with the treasure hidden in it,
You will be able to build thousands of houses. 
The treasure lies under it; there?s no help for it;
Hesitate not to pull it down; do not tarry!? 
- Rumi

"In My Father?s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.? 
- John 14: 2-6

**This "I" = the impersonal, invisible Christ = Love  = Awareness = your true Self**

When you're feeling Love, that's "putting the box aside", that's, "destroying your house", that's knowing that where you are, He is, and that He is you. This Love is risen and conscious as Itself where you appear to be, and the forecast is sunny with a GO(O)D chance of sudden miracles! Let's go! 
 
I love you and I'm with you in This Place where the past is not and never was,

How to Get Rid of Fear (#StopInTheNameOfLove)

Today's Quotes:

"He who has realized one's own Self, he does not get afraid of anybody."- Swamii Lakshmanjoo

?Q: How to get rid of fear?
A: What is fear?  It is only a thought.  If there is anything besides the Self there is reason to fear.  Who sees the second (anything external)? First the ego arises and sees objects as external.  If the ego dose not rise, the Self alone exists and there is no second (nothing external).  For anything external to oneself implies the seer within.  Seeking it there will arise no doubt, no fear?not only fear, all other thoughts centered around thee ego will disappear along with it.?
 ? Ramana Maharshi 

"This is the supreme meditation, this is the supreme worship: the continuous and unbroken awareness of the indwelling presence, inner light or consciousness." - Yoga Vasistha  

?Fear thou not, for I Am with thee; be not dismayed; for I Am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness?? 
? Isaiah 41: 10-14 

?But he said onto them, ?It is I, be not afraid.? 
? John 6:20

Today's Practice:

When you notice fear, stop. Pause. And try the Abhaya Mudra, and become aware of the Love, the Peace, that announces Itself within you.  Stay in this Peace. It's the 'I Am' that knows no fear, It is the same 'I Am' that is going before you to smooth the crooked places and prepare mansions.  Don't forget to feel This.  Make your felt remembrance of This primary, like there is no secondary.  (spoiler: 'cause there isn't)

I love you,

The Loving Consciousness Method

"1. Shut your eyes. 

2. Notice your consciousness (*that which wakes up in the morning and remains aware until you go to sleep.  Consciousness is not any of the things or experiences perceived, It is that which is aware of the things or experiences.  It is also aware of the absence of things or experiences.) 

3. Love your consciousness (*with the same Love, the same feeling we felt for a loved one*).

4. Turn your attention away from the world, body and thoughts and towards loving your consciousness.

Every time you notice you are thinking, turn your attention away from thought, and back towards loving your consciousness.  Love your consciousness, not your thoughts."

and/or 

"1. Shut your eyes. 

2. Notice that you are aware. (Awareness = Consciousness = Attention = Love)

3. Love that awareness. 

4. Cherish that awareness. 

Every time you notice a thought, turn your attention away from the thought, and continue loving your awareness.  Do not love your thoughts.  Love your awareness.?

When the Saints Come Marching In

Today's Quotes:

"The eyes of a saint are always concentrated on the supreme Self.  The minute he is aware of himself, sainthood is lost.?- Maharajji , Neem Karoli Baba 

"Please examine where your attention is at this moment.  You are listening to me. That is the focus of your attention. You are also peripherally aware of your surroundings, other people, and so on. Furthermore, there may be some mind activity around what you are hearing, some mental activity.  Yet there is no need for any of this to absorb all your attention.  See if you can be in touch with your inner body at the same time.  Keep some of your attention within.  Don?t let it all out." 
? Eckhart Tolle

"Why do you consider nonessentials so important? Most people concentrate on breakfast, lunch, and dinner, work social activities, and so on.  Make your life more simple and put your whole mind on the Lord." 
? Yogananada 

?Whatever outer work you must do, do it; but train your mind in such a way that in your subconscious mind you remember God.? 
- Maharajji , Neem Karoli Baba 

Today's Practice:
Consciously try to simplify your life. Your wardrobe. Your hair styles. Your food choices.  And watch Love further simplify your life, clearing the road, creating a new path, a new lane for you to thrive in.  A lane just for you, to win in, while remembering and being Love.

?Whoever works for God, his work will be done by itself."

Today's Quote:

"I Am doing everything
I have been doing everything
I will keep doing everything."
-God 

The I Am 'IS' doing everything... :) 

?Whoever works for God, his work will be done by itself." 
- Neem Karoli Baba 

Excerpt read from 'A Course in Miracles Made Easy' by Alan Cohen

"I sought Him.  I found Him as myself. My voice rang forth a call for Him.  I myself gave the response.  I gazed everywhere and saw myself.  I give and talk to myself, love and serve myself; for, there is none but I." - Swami Ramdas, Divine Life

Today's Practice:

Look around and FEEL only God.  Practice feeling God where you appear to be and where you see others.  Practice knowing that you're only ever talking to God, you're only ever seeing God, you're only ever serving God in the form of your sister, brother, mother, father, employee, and employer.  You're only ever working for God.  And that work does itself.

Put Me In Your Right Ear When You're in the Room With 'Them'

If you're physically safe and able to, play this one when you find yourself in the room with your moody and/or argumentative partner.  Play this when that familiar strong energy (that label frustration, anger, lack of appreciation, or jealousy) has come up in you and you're ready to see through it. 

Just keep one ear bud in and hit play.  See through this moment.  See through the anger.  See through them to the Love that's truly there.  
You are That.  
They are That. 
All of this is That. 
The moment you recognize this, even for a split second, you've won.  

If you want to see something different, you have to BE different, first.  To see your reflection change, you have to change, first.  This isn't about 'them'.  It never has been.  Choose Love in a moment like this for the first time, and you'll consciously BE this Love, forever.  

Welcome to your new life.  Welcome to the Go(o)d Life. 

I Love you and I'm with you, 
Nik

Be Honest With Yourself - A Morning Practice

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today's Quote AND Practice:

'Be honest with your Self'  by Robert Adams 

"How do you arrive at the Self?
Well here is another interesting way of getting to that.
If you get up in the morning, if you feel a little depressed or out of sorts, if you do this, you will start to laugh at yourself and you will feel better.
It will make you happy all day.
And here's what you do.

As soon as you get up say to yourself,
"I am not my arms, I am not my legs, I am not my torso,
I am not my head, I am not my bones, I am not my blood,
I am none of these things.
For most of these things are functioning without my knowledge.
My heart beats, I didn't tell it to beat.
I have to go to the bathroom,
I didn't give my body permission to go to the bathroom.
The body wants to eat, it gets hungry.
I never told my body to be hungry.
It appears as if I have nothing to do with my body at all".

You go further.
You say to yourself, "How about the world? I am not the world.
The world didn't exist a few moments ago when I was asleep.
Now that I am awake I think about the body, the world, God, work, food, bathroom.
All these things happen when I wake up.
Well if I'm not those things, who am I"?
Who is the 'I' that is experiencing all this? I don't know".

Be honest with yourself.
Don't say, "Oh the 'I' is consciousness".
That's the worst thing you can ever do.
Is to memorize certain words or phraseologies
and use them at your own time.
When you ask the question,
"Then who is experiencing the body?
Who is experiencing the world?"
Be honest with yourself and say, "I don't know? "It's a mystery".

Well then to whom is it a mystery to?
To me.
It therefore seems that if everything is a mystery to me...
'Me', 'me', 'me'.
If I got rid of the 'me', there would be no mystery.
Now how do I get rid of the 'me'?
Who is the 'me'? The 'me' is another word for 'I'.
I believe that everything is a mystery.
I have nothing to do with my body or the world".

So you get back to 'I'.
"Who is this 'I'? I don't know "It's a mystery".
There is the mystery again".
So I'll ask again, "For whom is the mystery for? For me.
Who am I? I don't know "It's a mystery".
For whom is the mystery for?"
As you keep talking to yourself this way,
something wonderful is going to happen.

Your question will begin to slow down and you will feel yourself becoming happy. 
You may even start laughing at yourself.
And your mind will become quieter and quieter and quieter.  
You will begin to feel enormous joy."

I love the You that's appearing as 'you', 
Nik

This is How We're Moving Today

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today?s Quotes: 

?To desire any thing or any person is to remain on the wheel of human existence.  What you really should want, and all you can legitimately try to demonstrate, is a greater awareness of the Christ.  If you had the realization of God?s presence, you would have infinite good; but when you seek a demonstration of something other than the presence of God, you are merely trying to demonstrate limitation, and you will succeed in doing just that.? 
? Joel Goldsmith  

?If there is Love in your heart it will guide you through life.  Love has its own intelligence.? 
? Sadhguru 

?Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.?
? Nisargadatta Maharaj

Move as the more confident, lovingly aligned ?you? today, until you see that in essence, there is no ?you?, only Love.  Only Love is here.

This Is The First Day of Your Dream Life

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today's Quote:

?The root of evil is in the illusion that we are bodies.  This, if any, is the original sin.? 
-Swami Vivekananda 

"When we come to Earth
They call it a birth
When we leave, 
They say we die. 

But we really don't come, 
And we really don't go. 
We just dream our lives
But why?

To awaken as Bliss
From all of this, 
Joyous that all is
'I'"
Ron's Memories (via a review section under a book on Amazon)

Today's Practice:

Keep attention beyond the senses, beyond the dream, on the 'I Am'.  It sounds like silence and feels like Bliss.  Stay aware as That.  Stay aware that the dream is a dream.  And allow this awareness to shift the dream.  When you're aware as Bliss, the body feels It, the body is a manifestation of It, and the old storylines are dead. 'History has ended'.  And you're watching that body move and BE in a new and powerful way.  Don't judge by appearances today or ever again.  Know your Self as Bliss and watch the beautiful dream unfold in its own 'time'.  

I Love you!

"Your Faith is Your Fortune"

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today's Quotes:

"The more you let your thoughts dwell on Him, the more you will find yourself improving in health, body and mind."
- Sri Anandamayi Ma

" You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."
- Isaiah 26:3

?Thy God whom thou servest continually; he will deliver thee.  -Daniel 6:16

The story of Daniel is the story of every man. It is recorded that Daniel, while locked in the lions' den, turned his back upon the hungry beasts; and with his vision turned toward the light coming from above he prayed to the one and only God. The lions who were purposely starved for the feast, remained powerless less to hurt the prophet.

Daniel's faith in God was so great that it finally brought about his freedom and his appointment to a high office in the government of his country. This story was written for you to instruct you in the art of freeing yourself from any problem or prison in the world. Most of us on finding ourselves in the lions' den would be concerned only with the lions, we would not be thinking of any other problem in the whole wide world but that of lions; yet we are told that Daniel turned his back upon them and looked toward the light that was God. If we could follow the example of Daniel while threatened with any dire disaster such as lions, poverty or sickness, if, like Daniel, we could remove our attention to the light that is God, our solutions would be similarly simple.

For example, if you were imprisoned, no man would need to tell you that what you should desire is freedom. Freedom or rather the desire to be free would be automatic. The same would be true if you found yourself sick or in debt or in any other predicament. Lions represent seemingly unsoluble situations of a threatening nature. Every problem automatically  produces its solution in the form of a desire to be free from the problem. Therefore, turn your back upon your problem and focus your attention  upon the desired solution by already feeling yourself to be that which you desire. Continue in this belief, and you will find that your prison wall will disappear as you begin to express that which you have become conscious of being.?
? Your Faith Is Your Fortune by Neville Goddard

Today's practice:

Stay focused on the Light, today.  And let It guide you to the felt-remembrance that you're the Light, Daniel, the lion, and the den.  There's nothing to fear. It's all Go(o)d.  Only Love is here. 

With you in and AS this Love, 
Nik

How to "Become Like a Child" and Live in the Kingdom

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

"Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven is within you, I think if he lived nowadays, instead of 'kingdom' he would have said, 'dimension'.  And 'heaven' refers to a sense of vastness of spaciousness.  So if we retranslate the words of Jesus into more modern terms, it would be 'the dimension of spaciousness is within you." - Eckhart Tolle

"Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 18:3

"A child and a Sage (janani) are similar in a way.  Incidents interest a child only so long as they last. It ceases to think of them after they have passed away. So then, it is apparent that they do not leave any impression on the child and it is not affected by them mentally.  So it is with a Sage." - Ramana Maharshi 

"Whatever happened, had to happen.  Don't sit and think: "I could have done this or that.' It is of no use.  Move on. " Ravi Shankar

Stay here, in the Kingdom, and Love will make you a King, protecting you so that you may protect and heal 'others', all while knowing that nothing is actually happening. Only Love is here.

Life Changes When You Understand This

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today's Quote:

"You cannot be changed, ?you? must be exchanged." - Mooji

"When we struggle to change ourselves we, in fact, only continue the patterns of self judgement and aggression.  We keep the war against ourselves alive." - Jack Kornfield 

Today's Practice:
Don't try to fix yourself.  Watch yourself.  Observe yourself, and the real Self steps in.  Love changes you.  Love heals you. Love replaces you.  And then you'll watch and observe healthier lifestyle choices as a natural side effect of conscious Oneness (alignment) with this Love.  

Love is moving you. 
Love is announcing itself in you. 
Love is choosing through you. 
It's using you. 
It's being you. 
When you feel Love, you automatically get out of the way.  You are automatically replaced and only Love is left. 

I Love you, 
Nik

The Transforming Power of 'NOW'

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Catch yourself when you're aware of thoughts that sound like, "things will be better, tomorrow", or "I'll be good after today...let me just get through today".  That's the same as saying, "I'm not good now... I can't feel good, I can't feel the presence of God, until tomorrow, until later."  And you know that's not true, you can only be aware of and AS God, now.  

When you become aware of thoughts like this, especially on days like these, when you're racing to the end of office hours, trying to get to your weekend, stop. Catch yourself breathing.  Feel for your heartbeat. Feel for God where you are and watch your world take on Love's image. Don't put off your felt-oneness with Love another second.   There is no other second. There is no 'tomorrow'.  When it seems to arrive, it'll be 'now', too.  Feeling Go(o)d now ensures that your future 'nows' will be Love.  I pray a sweet little prayer in this episode. Pray it with me.    

With you in and AS this Love,
Nik

You Can't Ride Two Horses at the Same Time

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

In every moment, you're either remembering God, or you're not.  You're either feeling Love, or you're not.  Keep riding the feeling of Love and watch the view change. 

?If you close our eyes, you will see that after your thoughts, behind your mind, behind your identity, there?s something there.  There?s a Presence.  We like to call that Presence, me, ?I am there.? And if you close your eyes, you will see that it?s like a person in the room.  The room isn?t empty.  There?s ?somebody? in the room?we call it ?me?. That?s your life energy.  That?s the very thing that?s alive inside you.  And this aliveness is what some people call Consciousness, and what some have called God.  It?s permanently switched on and It wasn?t born when the body was born.  It?s always happy.  It doesn?t need anything more to become happy.  But Maya doesn?t let us look at this ?something?, since it?s a delusion that the physical world is ultimate reality. 

So Naam (mantra or repetition of God?s names) is saying, ?don?t look at the material world, there?s something behind the material world.  Focus on that.  Focus on where the material world came from.?  Naam Simran is constantly reminding us, ?don?t get lost in the game.? And you notice that this game is very easy to get lost in.  Why? Because Maya is a very tasty wine.  We are drinking this wine all the time, we are swimming in this wine.  And every now and then, we remember a bit of Naam and we get out of the system, but then we forget and we go back in the system, and then we remember again.  Over and over.  This is why Naam Simran is a 24 hour practice.  24 hours a day what you?re meditating on is, ?This is not real. This is not reality. Ram Naam is the real reality, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru?that which is behind Maya is the reality, Maya itself is not the reality.? - @nanak.naam

God's Hand Has Always Been on You

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

'The Sure Presence' by Eva Bell Werber via In His Presence (1946)

"All about you is seeming reality.  It is so much easier to dwell in this confusion of mind than it is to rest back in the quiet garden of spirit.  You must constantly exercise and practice the Presence until of all things, It is the most real. 

Watch carefully for directions.  Keep your soul atuned for My voice.  It is subtle, low, and sweet, yet with what great sureness can It guide you. It will clarify the things which seem to confound you and over which you seem of yourself to have no control.  You will know then that the way you walk is the way I choose for you and that which before seemed so real will fade away in the light of My truth and wisdom.  

Rest now for a moment in My arms of love. Feel the tender touch of My hand upon your head, then go forth to bear My radiance to all your world. "

Stay in conscious remembrance of God's hand... of this Love, today and always, and watch miracles become the norm.  

With you in and AS this Love,

Negative Emotions Are Actually a Go(o)d Sign!

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today, focus on the emotion, not the reason for it. 

1. Look at it, with your inner eyes. Is it big? Small? What shape is it? What color is it? How far up from the ground is it? How far down from the ceiling is it? Is it rough or smooth? Is it transparent or cloudy? etc.  Even if your eyes are closed, look at it, unblinking, fully alert, like in this episode.  
2. Listen to it-- not for words or for a story about why it has come.  It's silent. You're silent. Listen to the silence in and around it.  Be the silence.  
3. Feel it fully without any need for context, explanation, or label. 

This is surrender.  This is letting it go.  This negative energy has only come because it's ready to be seen through, to be dropped.  Sitting with it this way is the ascension, it's the level up. It then reveals the Love it was made of.  And you stay in the Love.  You stay as the Love.  And you repeat this process every time more of the 'past' comes up to be released.  Keep rising.  Keep releasing.  Keep rising.  I'm with you. 

I love you, 
Nik

Walking AS Love with Rupert Spira

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

One of my favorite spiritual messengers, Rupert Spira, penned a DELICIOUS poem at the top of the year, and he gave me his blessing to share it with you! 

Lockdown Nights in Oxford by Rupert Spira, author of Being Myself

 "Last night I walked the streets of Oxford with Kabir
The night before it was Jesus
And the night before, Rumi visited, uninvited!

Every night a different companion but always the same Friend
Why go anywhere when the Beloved always comes to you?

I pointed out the smiling houses to Kabir
(Have you noticed that houses have a face?)
?It is I who am smiling?, he said.

?I am happy to see you?, I said to Atmananda the next night
?You are happiness itself?, he replied.

I stood outside a chapel
And listened to a choir with Brother Lawrence
?Our love for God is God?s love for us?, he said.

And the next night, Meister Eckhart,
?There is a huge silence inside each of us
That beckons us into itself?
?Know nothing?, Socrates said the following night
?Be everything?, added Parmenides.

I showed Plotinus the gardens
But he said, ?I see only one thing?
I talked with the Buddha
But he remained silent
I was silent with Moses
But he started to sing

I uttered the word ?I?
But Balyani held his hand to my mouth
I asked Huang Po if he could hear the stream
?There is only the hearing?, he said.

I found William Blake naked in the park
?Do you see how, through perception, the infinite gives birth to itself??
he asked

?He?s right?, Ramana said,
?The universe is born every moment
Through the portal I Am?
And later, when I suggested we rest,
?I am always at rest?, he smiled

?Thine this universal frame,
Thus wondrous fair,
Thyself how wondrous then??
Milton asked ecstatically as we looked at the sky

?Everything shines with being?, Wordsworth said
I offered Jesus a drink
?I am the water of life?, he said.

I walked in silence with Francis
?My silence is my question?, I said
?My silence is my answer?, he replied
I walked alone one night
With the world for my Friend

The next night I found Hafiz drunk on a bench
?Come taste this wine!? he called
Shams came to join us
?I am looking for the Friend?, he sighed.

?I love these night-time walks?, I said to Anandamaya Ma
?Love only love?, she said
I listened to barking dogs with Abinavagupta
?Know only knowing?, he said
?I am??
?Shhh! Don?t add anything to it?,
Sri Nisargadatta exclaimed.

I danced down the street with Mozart
I prayed in every step with Bach
I leaned with Primo Levi against a wall
Watching friends and lovers and strangers
?Each of us?, he said ?bears the imprint
Of a friend met along the way;
In each the trace of each?

Yeats joined us
?There are no strangers here?, he said
?Only friends we haven?t yet met?
And Rembrandt agreed
?If you look at anyone for long enough?, he said
They will eventually become your friend?

I watched the sun set with Shelley one night
?The One remains, the many change and pass?, he said
And then, as the moon arose,
?Heaven?s light forever shines, Earth?s shadows fly;
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of Eternity,
Until Death tramples it to fragments. Die,
If thou wouldst be with that which thou dost seek!?

And last night Ru

How to Change the Game

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Today's Quote:

"The most important spiritual growth doesn't happen when you're meditating or on a yoga mat. It happens in the midst of conflict-- when you're frustrated, angry, or scared and you're doing the same old thing, and then suddenly you realize you have a choice to do it differently." - Anonymous from IG

Today's Practice:

Make the choice to be woke in the game.  Know that Love is the essence of every scene, of every situation, of every character,  even yours.  Feel Love and watch the game change.  

I love you,

The Hidden Perfume

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends!

Remembering God is our main business, and that remembrance handles all of our other business!  So all of the senses must be employed toward that end.

Up next, the sense of smell.   Allow a fragrant oil (I like Jasmine Absolute in Jojoba Oilfrom Whole Foods) to jog your memory to reach for God, to stay tapped into Love.  Or light an incense to help you stay aware of the Light in your heart.  Let the worldly perfume guide you to your inner, "hidden perfume".  Do what it takes to BE who you are.

Today's Quote:

"You contain within your innermost being many qualities of which you are unaware.  These are like unto beautiful bottles of rare perfume which you have put away in closets and forgotten."-   excerpted from Journey with the Master by Eva Bell Werber (The Hidden Perfume)

The Magic of Finding Your Soul

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

In this bonus episode, I share the power of listening to today's full length episode (Beyond Time), while walking.  The contrast of your body being in motion, and the still Center that you are, is apparent, if you know where and how to look!

Today's Quotes:

"Here's the trick-- the magic of finding your soul and filling your heart: Once you find space, peer intently into it as if it was a thick fog, and you're waiting to see what will come out of it. Look into the depth and breadth of every space, and pay close attention to not only what you see, but also to what you feel.  That's right, find your Eufeeling (Love) in the space between two objects.  It will melt your heart. -  Frank Kinslow, The Kinslow System

"Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it." - Ram Dass

"God plus mind is man. Man minus mind is God."

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Today's Quotes: 

"When you know who you truly are, there is an abiding alive sense of peace.  You could call it joy because that's what joy is: vibrantly alive peace.  It is the joy of knowing yourself as the very life essence before life takes on form.  That is the joy of Being-- of being who you truly are." 
-Eckhart Tolle 

"God plus mind is man. Man minus mind is God." - Anonymous 

"Let it burn." - Usher 

Today's Practice:

Like a windshield ? ?Simply noticing is like being the clear glass on a car windshield.  The clear glass windshield simply provides the view.  The clear glass never comments on the view.  When driving down the street, does a clear glass windshield ever say, ?I would prefer another scene.  Choose somewhere else to drive, please!?? A clear glass windshield never adds to or complicates what comes into its field of view by also thinking about the view.  The clear glass doesn?t project judgment or story on the view, and see only that. In other words, things can be seen as they really are.  Simple noticing is the same?it is the pure, raw awareness of perceiving. Clear awareness is silent seeing. Right now, look out at the scene like a clean, clear windshield.?- excerpt from Peter Francis Dzubian?s , 'Simply Notice'

This God Feeling Becomes Your Good Life

Join our free community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Your manifesto... your mantra... your re-birth:

I am so thankful that I am now consciously aware of my Inner Power.  This natural feeling of Love is my constant reminder of who walks with me.  I fear nothing.  I am Loved, confident, and free.  When I feel this current of inner Bliss, I am feeling God's infinite Wealth flowing to me now, and forever.

Use this one, or write your own and read it in front of the mirror until you tap into that Go(o)d feeling, and then try to stay feeling It for as long as you can.  Keep remembering It. Keep remembering that  your good rides in on this feeling.  This God feeling becomes your good life.

This Feeling is More Real Than the Scene at Hand

Today's Quotes: 

"At every moment, we are free to allow experience to veil our innate Peace or to remain transparent to it. " - Rupert Spira 

Today's Practice:

Pretend you're standing in front of a window with a clear view out at a mountainous  forest.  It's a gorgeous day. The colors are vibrant and crisp.  Now, shift your attention to your reflection in the window.  The view is still there, but now it's in the background, and your reflection is in the foreground. Even if there was a war outside your window, it would be no more difficult to become aware of your reflection... of your innate Peace, that's also present.  No matter what's on view (and it is constantly changing!), don't lose sight of your Self. Don't forget Love.  Don't make the view and its alternating,  alluring beautiful and terrifying images more important than your awareness of Love.  Truly, only Love is here.  And you are That.  Feel It.  Be It.  

I love you,

Live in Your Bigger Body

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Today's Meditation is a reading from Brian Tom O'Connor's Awareness Games.

Today's Quotes:

"In other words, the background is what objects appear in, silence is what sound appears in, mind is what thoughts appear in, space is what the body appears in, "I" is what "me" appears in, and now is what time appears in. "
- Brian Tom O'Connor via Awareness Games

"You are confused, because you believe that you are in the world.  Not the world in you.  Who came first-- you or your parents?  You imagine that you were born at a certain tine and place, that you have a father and a mother, a body and a name.  This is your sin and your calamity."
-Nisargadatta Maharaj

"Before Abraham was, I Am."
- John 8:48-59

Today's Practice:

1. Notice your whole, entire body.
2. Imagine that you have a bigger body that surrounds your entire body. 
3. Be that bigger body.

Live from and AS the bigger body, witnessing the regular body, its thoughts, and its world from this expanded (and more natural) perspective.  This is very similar to the practice from the panning out episode-- just approached from a different angle!  Get back, or hover above, or pan out, or live in the bigger body, or live as the spiritual body--- do what it takes to continuously recognize that you are more than that body! 

I love you!

The Great Shift

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Today's Quotes:

"Where you focus makes all the difference. Shift your focus and everything changes in an instant.  It doesn't matter for how long or how hard you have been asking (for what you want).  Things can change in the next second, the next minute, the next day or the next week... once you live these truths." - Richard Dotts 

"Think of God alone. Dismiss every thought from your mind.  You will see God before you and all your problems will be solved." - Shivapuri Baba

Today's Practice:

If 'letting go' is too heavy of a lift, try letting it be... or better still, shifting, from the disturbing thought to something else.  It's as simple as moving your attention from your hand to your breath.  In truth, there's nothing to let go of, and no one (t)here to do the letting go.  There's only Love. Only Light.  Shift into the Light. Stay (t)here. 

I love you,

Listen to This One When You'd Rather Stay In Bed

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Let's tap into true rest-- the place inside that is never drained, the place inside where you are always, already at rest, and blissfully so.

Excerpt from A Course in Miracles Lesson 109--

"We ask for rest today, and quietness unshaken by the world?s appearances. We ask for peace and stillness, in the midst of all the turmoil born of clashing dreams. We ask for safety and for happiness, although we seem to look on danger and on sorrow. And we have the thought that will answer our asking with what we request.

?I rest in God.? This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. ?I rest in God.? This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is. Here is the end of suffering for all the world, and everyone who ever came and yet will come to linger for a while. ?Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize himself.

?I rest in God.? Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem that it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate your rest remains completely undisturbed. Yours is the rest of truth. Appearances cannot intrude on you. You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God. They will not hear another voice than yours because you gave your voice to God, and now you rest in Him and let Him speak through you.  Continue here.

Living from the God State

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Today's Quotes:

"There is a Power that will light your way to health, happiness, peace, and success if you will but turn toward that Light."
? Yogananda

?The light of the world comes and goes, it is unstable. The Light that is eternal can never be extinguished. By this Light you behold the outer light and everything in the universe; it is only because It shines ever within you, that you can perceive the outer light. Whatever appears to you in the universe is due solely to that great Light within you, and only because the Supreme Knowledge of the essence of things lies hidden in the depths of your being is it possible for you to acquire knowledge of any kind.?
? Ananadamayi Ma

"The Light inside, the Love inside of us, is always present.  It can't be anywhere else.  God lives inside of us as who we really are.  Not as "God": Some Other Thing.  As who we are.  Not somebody else. Not something else."
- Krishna Das, Chants of a Lifetime

"Waking State - Movie playing, lights off
Dream State- Movie playing, lights off
Deep Sleep- Movie not playing, lights off
Turiya- Movie playing, lights ON

Turiya is pure consciousness-- the background that underlies and pervades the three common states of consciousness (waking state, dreaming state, and dreamless deep sleep)."
--'Turiya, The God State' by Santata Gamana

Today's Practice:
Stay aware that you're aware.  Stay aware that you're in the movie theatre watching, with the lights on, so you won't be fully absorbed into the storyline.  Watch the movie of your life like Michael Jackson in THIS GIF.  The Light is here, and you are That.

How to Let Go of Resentments and Be Love

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with us!

Today's Quote:

"Tonight, give thanks to those who have done you wrong. They have unknowingly made you strong." 
- Unknown 

"Resentments. They all have their cheap little payoff, that little inner satisfaction. Let?s not pretend that it?s not there. There is a weird, quirky pleasure when we hang on to pain. It certainly satisfies our unconscious need for the alleviation of guilt through punishment. We get to feel miserable and rotten. The question then arises, ?But for how long??  
- David R. Hawkins

Today's Practice:

Pause in the midst of a familiar train of thought about who or what is bothering you.  Scan your body.  Let go of the tension you find. Letting go of the tension on the inside is the healing.  You'll begin to experience a constant, conscious Peace inside, and harmony outside until you see that there is no inside and outside. Only Peace. Only Harmony, Only this Love. 

REMEMBER: Feeling Love is the 'let go'.  When you keep feeling Love, you keep letting go into Love. And when only Love is left, what appears can only be in the image of that Love.  You realize life is really Go(o)d.

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with me!

Today's Quotes:

"Brahman is to be meditated upon as the source of all thought and life and action. He is the splendor in wealth, he is the light in the stars. He is all things.  

Let a man meditate upon Brahman as support, and he will be supported. Let him meditate upon Brahman as greatness, and he will be great.  Let him meditate upon Brahman as mind, and he will be endowed with intellectual power.  Let him meditate upon Brahman as adoration, and he will be adored.  Let him worship Brahman as Brahman, and he will become Brahman." 
- Taittiriya Upanishad translated by Swami Prabhavananda and Frederick Manchester 

"Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life." 
- Lahiri Mahasaya 

Brahman definition via WIKI- The ultimate reality underlying all phenomena.  Brahman connotes the highest Universal Principle, the Ultimate Reality in the universe. In major schools of Hindu philosophy, it is the material, efficient, formal and final cause of all that exists. It is the pervasive, infinite, eternal truth and bliss which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes.

Today's Practice:

Get into Love and feel and know It to be _______.  Then wear the feeling like a cloak and don't take it off ever haha.  If you keep It on, It becomes your life.

Abide Where Harmony Prevails- A Guided Meditation

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with me!

Today's Quotes: 

?We feel harassed physically, 
confused mentally, 
and weary for peace. 
This is how to relieve such a situation:

The program of Yoga, Self-Analysis and meditation?
a shifting of the focus of attention 
from the object to the subject, 
from the gross to the subtle,
from the outer to the inner, 
from matter to Spirit, 
from multiplicity to Oneness. 

Go daily into deep meditation. 
Dive deep beneath the waves of the mind
into the ocean of Being
where Oneness, Peace, 
and prefect Harmony prevails. 
Gradually learn to abide there.? 
?Srimati Margaret Coble, ?Self Abidance?

?The simple truth here is that your conscious attention, once focused on the inner feeling of yourself, will destroy whatever is false in that feeling.  Since emotion or unhappiness is the falsehood in you (because it turns to pain) it is gradually dissolved or destroyed.  What is left behind is the true?your joyous, natural, vibrant self, your happy body. This can never be annihilated because it alone is real in you.? ? from Barry Long?s book ?Only Fear Dies?

?Silence is the altar of Spirit.? -Yogananda

Today's Practice:

Abide in that place inside that is still, unmoving, effortlessly quiet, and Loving. Stay aware as that which isn't moving or talking when the body is moving and talking.  Keep returning to the hub, to the Center.  Breathe your way into the Center. Use a mala to help keep your attention in the Center instead of only in the world.  Do what it takes until your attention and the Center are recognized as One. 

I love you, 
Nik

THE 24-HOUR KINGDOM CHALLENGE!

Join our community of Go(o)d Friends to deep dive into today's practice with me!

?What if the doctor told you that you have 24 hours to live and the one thing that could save you, is that for the next 24 hours you have to get into the Kingdom and stay there? If you were told you cannot move into doubt, depression, worry, or fear for more than 5 minutes? it would be a challenge to you, but you would surely give it your best effort.

If getting into Joy was a life or death situation, you would find you could do it.  You would shift immediately into Gratitude.? ? Lisa Natoli 

?Know this: When you say, ?I?, the true meaning of ?I? is Joy, It is Happiness, It is Life?and It?s also the witnessing of Life.? - Mooji

I love you and I'm with you in Joy!
