Everything that comes from love is a miracle. Purification is the undoing of anything within you that is not love—which of course is the experience of learning to love yourself. To find the love within requires quiet and stillness. You... Continue reading

Yesterday I wrote that perfect love is the best way to undo the ego. Most people believe that it is necessary or even desirable to have some ego, but I have found that the ego offers nothing of value. Ego... Continue reading

Eckhart Tolle refers to the emotional side of ego as the pain body. The pain body is the out-of-control emotional energy that sometimes arises within us during conflict, stress, or times of great fear. It takes over the body and... Continue reading

Illusions end when they are seen. To see an illusion is not to dissect it until it is understood by the mind; rather, to silently observe the mind and body from the perspective of your true identity. The unobserved mind... Continue reading

We spend much of our lives searching for that perfect match—the one who fits us, gets us, and likes us for who we are. The normal approach is to start with a wish-list—a set of standards, characteristics and ideals—and then... Continue reading

The ego is vicious at worst and suspicious at best. The unobserved mind knows nothing other than the punishment of either attack or separation. This is its range. Look from the realm of consciousness and notice that I have acted... Continue reading

To see another person as only a means to get something is to commit a tragic error—to choose lack rather than abundance. We want abundance in love, friendship, and enjoyable moments with someone. We want to be respected and understood.... Continue reading

As Eckhart Tolle often reminds us, words are like a sign-post…pointing beyond itself to some greater truth or knowing. When you try to get a dog to look at something, you may point at it. The dog doesn’t know to... Continue reading
