On the Radio...
I have come to the frightening conclusion.... that I am the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration;
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.
The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
~ Winston Churchill
From Onions to Pearls quotes (by Satyam Nadeem)
You no longer need to be the doer.
It's already handled.
Forget all intentional efforts.
You can't screw up.
You can't lose out.
You are not responsible for saving the world.
You can't make a wrong choice.
You will accomplish your destiny.
You are enlightened at your core essence.
It really doesn't matter whether you are awakened or not.
You can't be a victim.
You have no enemies out there. Only Source!
You can forget about bad "karma". It's over and never existed!
No mystery of what you will be in your next life. there is no you!
You don't have to worry about the purpose of life.
With infinite wisdom, Source has laid out the design of your life.
Witnessing life in choiceless awareness is the most fun, relaxed,
peaceful, satisfying, and exciting in every way possible.
Since Source is the only doer, that lets you off the hook as God's little helper.
By the end of the journey, no matter what you did or didn't do,
achieved or did not achieve, the ultimate outcome is
still the same--at rest again in Source.
No matter how difficult you may perceive your life situation,
it is always in perfect balance of freedom to limitation.
It is no better or worse off than anyone else's just different, that's all!
What we have taken so seriously all our lives is really not serious at all.
You are perfect exactly as you are right now.
In fact, everything is exactly the way it should be,
and nothing needs to be fixed or changed.
Don't take the world and its darkness so seriously --it is not as real as it feigns to be. It is only a creation and it is being re-created out of absolutely nothing at every moment. The only thing real about it is its purpose of being --that you should purify it.

Treatment for the week by Ernest Holmes
I now accept that the life of Spirit is my life. The infinite richness of Spirit is mine to enjoy. The vital good health, the wisdom, the peace, and all the good things which proceed from Spirit, I now claim. The act of accepting them is my right and privilege, and I exercise it intelligently and in full faith.
Life now sings through me in radiant ecstasy. And so it is.
