Let us be glad that you will see what you believe, and that it has been given you to change what you believe.
 
The learning of the world is built upon the concept of the self adjusted to the world’s reality.
 
Your concept of the world depends upon this concept of the self…To see a guilty world is but  the sign that your learning has been guided by the world, and you behold it as you see yourself.

 

The World according to you or the world according to me?

Did you ever wonder who set the standard for right and wrong? Who determines good and bad? If you were raised in a gypsy family and came home at the end of the day not having stolen anything, you would be bad. If you were raised in a middle class American white family and you came home having stolen something, you would be bad. Geez, someone is clearly wrong, right? But who? Depends on whose viewpoint you take.
 
If you did something that created a situation where someone got mad at you, are you wrong for doing that? What if that situation offered a catalyst for tremendous growth? Is the goal to make everyone happy? Oh, right, happy. Who determines criteria for happy? Sunny day, 72 degrees, lots of chocolate, everyone flattering you and bringing you presents? No? Fresh powder for perfect skiing, opportunities to help others? Oh dear, how can we consider almost 7 billion individuals on this planet? Surely there are truths of this world. Some things are clearly bad and others are good. Aren’t they?
 
But what? I had this conversation with someone years ago and I asked what was clearly wrong, across the board, in every situation was wrong. Death is often merciful, the government creates endless opportunities for mirroring the ego within us. What about torture, punishment? Our country insists those are necessary for inflicting justice. Hmm. So he finally came up with slavery. “Slavery is bad, wrong, no matter how you look at it,” he said. But what about for the slaver owner? Doubt they think it is wrong. And unless every single individual agrees that something is wrong, it is not a universal truth.                  (continued below)


An awesome book suggested to me by Janet Snyder is Dying to be Me by Anita Moorjani. A miraculous near death experience story takes you into the world beyond and the author describes this after body experience as the essence of unconditional love~ the core of everything I teach. It was refreshing and inspiring, but mostly affirming that the journey to god is the journey to find it within! I would definitely recommend it.
 
Mark your calendar for Dec 6th. If you live in the Sandpoint, Idaho area, you won’t want to miss this event. Janice Lindgren, coach and workshop leader, leads a first in Sandpoint. She is setting the scene for a Family Constellation workshop which is about restoring the flow of love in the family system. Having participated in a workshop with Janice during the 18-month Spiritual Vision Quest this last summer, I strongly recommend it. It is a group process that has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness, creating the opportunity to break free of destructive patterns we inherited energetically. For more information, contact Mary Jones maryj@nctv.com. Gardenia Center from 9am-4pm  $25.

Sept 30 marks the first day of the 2014 group of Spiritual Vision Questers and we wish them all a remarkable and transformative journey! Hold on for the experience of a lifetime!!
 

Thank you so much for your amazing support of our new novel, The Untidy Witness. The reviews are awesome and it was what we were hoping for~ offering an exciting and interesting novel while sharing much more at the same time. If you belong to a book club and are looking for something non-mainstream, check it out! Thank you all again so much!

So would we agree that there are no universal rights or wrongs? Is it wrong to drive down a one-way street opposite the flow of traffic? It is illegal and unsafe, but it is clearly possible and available. I saw someone do that just the other day, unaware. They were not bad or wrong, just unsafe and perhaps in need of correction for living in a group. But not bad.
 
Dishonoring someone is not kind, but it provides opportunities for creating boundaries and self-honor for the other. Being mean is an option, being self-centered is too. Couldn’t all of them simply be options on the infinite menu of possible ways to express Creation Energy?? You may be agreeing with me. But be careful. If you do, this means you don’t have a leg to stand on next time you judge someone or make them wrong or even judge yourself as wrong or bad because (in the words of my favorite singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco) whose world is it gonna be, the one according to you, or the one according to me?

Practicing non-judgment is not an easy thing. But here are some words of a zen master that offer a simple method (zen poetry!):
 
The Perfect Way is only difficult
 for those who pick and choose;
Do not like, do not dislike;
            All will then be clear.
 
Make a hair-breath difference
            And Heaven and Earth are set apart;
 
If you want the truth to stand clear before you,
            Never be for or against.
 
The struggle for or against
            Is the mind’s worst disease.
   Sen-ts’an
