Knowing that we’re doing the best we can and learning more to do better is the key to loving, forgiving, and trusting each other and ourselves. This is a great example of how we consciously and unconsciously shape energy into reality. By changing what we think and feel, how we act and react to ourselves and each other, we exercise the power to change ourselves and the world for the better. And we do it without guns and knives or at great expense in material resources and lives.
For thoughts on forgiveness, read The Healing Power of Forgiveness. It describes my personal experience with forgiveness after changing what I thought about my parents during meditation in the mid 1980’s. It was an amazing experience!
Excerpt from We Create Our Own Reality:
The challenge of being and creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape energy, money included, into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk and talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act that makes falling part of learning how to stand.
Remember: thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. Create a great day!

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Instead of money, power and privilege, would love, truth and joy be a better measure of success? One set of values isolates us in the material world of separation, scarcity, and competition when we use it as our primary measure of success. The other establishes our oneness as well as our individuality and acknowledges our role in creation itself. Values like love, truth, and joy encourage us to live for the love of Being and Creation, instead of running from the fear of suffering and death. They inspire us to find and express what we like most about ourselves and ALL That Is, instead of justifying ruthlessness, cruelty, and manipulation for the sake of short-term, personal survival.
In life and business, how often do we ask: is what I’m doing worthy of my highest ideals? Do my actions improve the quality of life or undermine it? Do they improve humanity’s chances for survival or threaten it?
How we define ourselves and the world around us forms our intent, which, in turn, forms our reality, whether by fault or default, intentionally or unintentionally. If we don’t take responsibility for choosing our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings. If that is so, how can we afford not to question them?
Should a meaningful “education” include learning to do for ourselves what others will not or cannot do for us?
What do we want most for our children, ourselves and the world?
What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow?
What works best and makes us happiest?
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Shouldn’t we look for them?
