If we face a situation without any intention, free from fear and desire, this openness paves the way for an intuition that will lead to a decision or an action in total harmony with that situation. Such a decision may bring about an apparent change, but this change is not an escape from or an avoidance of the situation; it doesn’t originate from the person; it emanates from intelligence.

I desire to hear such a speech from the President of the United States to the nations of the world. Life is like football 🙂 Maybe the americans should elect Al Pacino.
Either we heal as a team or we are going to crumble. Inch by inch play by play till we’re finished. We are in hell right now, gentlemen believe me and we can stay here and get the shit kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell. One inch, at a time. Now I can’t do it for you […]On this team, we fight for that inch On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us to pieces for that inch. We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch. Cause we know when we add up all those inches that’s going to make the fucking difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING[…]I’ll tell you this in any fight it is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch. And I know if I am going to have any life anymore it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch because that is what LIVING is. The six inches in front of your face.
Now I can’t make you do it. You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes. Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. You are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when it comes down to it, you are gonna do the same thing for him. That’s a team, gentlemen and either we heal now, as a team, or we will die as individuals. That’s football guys. That’s all it is.
Now, whattaya gonna do?

“God is ever flowing through me as perfect Life. I am a manifestation of the energy, the love, the peace, and the power of Spirit.”
Daily Wisdom from Dr. Ernest Holmes – Oct. 16
I Am a Manifestation of Spirit
“I commune with the invisible Presence within me until there comes a certainty that is beyond hope, something that enables me to see the future as clear-eyed as I see the past. I have the joy of knowing I will live forever. I am aware of the Divine within me. Peace, quiet, and confidence flow through my thought. I know that inspiration and guidance are mine. I permit myself to be moved upon by Divine Intelligence.
Laying aside every sense of burden or false responsibility, loosing all fear and uncertainty from my thought, I enter into my kingdom of good today. I know that this kingdom is accessible to all. I see through all apparent contradictions to the one Perfect Being in every person. I see through all confusion to the one Divine Presence at the center of everything. God’s world is not a world of illusion, but of realities. All that exists is for the purpose of expressing Life. This includes everything—a tree, a rose, my own physical body.
Nothing can be excluded from this omnipresence. It is this Presence that Moses communed with through the burning bush, the Divine Flame that surrounded the bush with an aura of light and color. This flame of Divinity penetrates everything. God is ever flowing through me as perfect Life. I am a manifestation of the energy, the love, the peace, and the power of Spirit.”
