Protecting Ourselves With Fear

Tweet Whenever we use any of these words: Don’t…  Not…  No…  we are protecting ourselves with fear.  Other words such as:  Aren’t, doesn’t, isn’t…, wouldn’t, couldn’t, and shouldn’t, etc. are also creating limitations as the mind isn’t capable of processing these words because they also include the word “not.”  Lester Levenson explains to us, “If I say the word table, you get a picture of a table.  If I say the words, “not table,” you’ll still get an image of a table”.  Catch yourself “Don’t-ing… Not-ing… and No-ing…,” as these words are blind spots to the mind.  These limiting words …

What’s Good? / What’s Bad?

Tweet We all have so much information on both sides of this question.  “Good / Bad?”, “Naughty / Nice?”, “Happy / Sad?”  As children we began seeing things in opposites.  Actually, this is our seeing things in duality.  Our basic nature is happiness and love.  So therefore it is suggested that we are all good and all deserving to be happy.  And yet many of us don’t believe this.  We’re afraid to have goodness, everything nice, and our always being happy.  We have fears, lots of fears about having abundance.  So in reality we are pushing abundance away from us.  …
