Magic Unicorns by DV Read by Debra Yvonne Simmons Please bring the Spirit with you.
Thankful: Think about the people and things you feel grateful for.
As a Whole Christ Consciousness we have much to be thankful for. Even if you come from the most sordid circumstance, you are breathing. You have value. You have purpose, if only to be able to tell Christ that all the bad things he thought could happen to him have no lasting effect. Write down what you are thankful for. Find it in your own way. Is it in nature? Music, show, or something you read? Find that happy place and recognize it. Add to it regularly and lock it in your memory by tapping your third eye (the spot between the eye brows).
Coming from a place of gratitude opens many doors.
Wish Upon a Star: Make a wish and expect the very best.
I have heard it said that you want to dream your dream but do not put expectations on how you will get there or the time needed to do so. Desires are important. They keep us moving forward. There is so much that humanity is going to be blessed with that we cannot even begin to imagine it. And yet we must. The imagination of humanity is powerful and not to be underestimated. It also will be allowed to be manifested in every minute detail. May I suggest that we imagine positives for all?!!!!
You Are Gifted: You are very intelligent and talented.
There you have it. If you ever heard or thought otherwise, let it go! We are not made from a cookie cutter. We all learn and experience differently and your means of expression are important to the world whether anyone “gets it” or not. You may be known by millions or only to yourself, but have no doubt of your value and importance to humanity and All That IS.
Love Heals Fear: The power of your love can help bullies and angry people to be less afraid.
Start with yourself. Love yourself. And love your enemy. It takes away their sting and no one can touch your spirit. No one can give it up or crush it but you. Do not look for places to be aggressive, even with a bully. Just stand in your own truth, whatever that is for you. I only recently heard in my heart that Jesus did not know fear. He dwelled in the knowledge of Christ, his Father. Jesus shares that with us. We are a part of Christ as a son is part of a father and unlike the world where we separate, there is no broken union between Father and Son. Urtext ACIM teaches that Love is Power. Let the Holy Spirit teach you this and share the Love of the Father for the Son.
Be grateful for all of it, because it has a purpose.
Wish for your heart’s desire. Just do not put expectations on how or when it will be manifest.
Know your value. Your are capable and important to the Whole, have no doubt.
Love heals fear. Stand in your own power. Love you and love others so that it comes back to fill you.
Do not misunderstand me here. I am not suggesting all is wonderful out there as far as personal circumstances go. I know this is not the case and will not be for many. Remember you are not your body. You are not your story. You are not the story Christ sent you here to live out. You are Divine and you have a role in a plan that will bless the Whole of Christ, which we are. Whether here or on the other side of the veil, you are cherished and wonderful.
You will find people who will support a troubled story however you want to define it. But you have the power to heal you and in so doing to heal others. This is my witness, in Jesus name, Amen.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste
From Angels and Ancestors Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray read by Debra Yvonne Simmons
Sage, Be Devoted and Committed
Take note of what you understand today. This will open the door for greater understanding to come. The human consciousness is always in need of those who are willing to express their understanding of life. It is an internal journey and even if you only keep a private journal that allows you to express yourself, you are becoming more aware of you.
Stag, Trust and Thrive
Stag is king of the forest in Celtic tradition. Even though he is hunted he is courageous and a leader. Sure-footed and gentle are the characteristics of the deer. The stag also holds his head up high, steady and sure in his own skin and place in the world. This card represents fertility and sexuality. Do not be afraid of these components of living in a linear sense. Life is meant to be savored. Find out what that means to you and embrace it.
Knight, Be Brave and Honest
Be brave and honest. You can only be the best of who you are today, and this is an environment of change. Meditation, nature walks, writing, music, and prayer can help you identify what you value and desire to protect and defend. Do not let others tell you what those things are. And then embrace them and the vulnerability that comes from being in this time and place.
Protection Guardian, Drop Your Shields
Drop your walls of shame, resistance, and fear. You are here to feel good and to be happy. Embrace the moment and the blessings in it. As you do this, you will build an awareness of how it feels that you may store in your physical and mental memory for times when the tide turns. Remember that there are guardians, angels around you, protecting you so that you may be what you were meant to be. Joy is your natural state. Embrace it.
Be attentive and constructive as you engage with life. What you learn blesses all of us. You have great value.
Honor yourself. Hold your head high. You are not here by accident. Your value is not questioned.
Decide for yourself what you value and defend. Give your whole heart and know that being true to yourself and your being is benefitting all of humanity.
You are protected. Guardian angels stand as sentinels to see that you fulfill all that you came here to do. Let go of fear, shame, and resistance. You are and that is awesome.
These words can be challenging for many in the world today. Torn families, sexual abuse and betrayals can leave you feeling less than worthy. You come from God. Make no mistake that He finds you less than perfect. Mistakes by yourself or others are just that, mistakes. Observe them, feel the emotion they bring and then let them go. Do not hold onto errors as an identity. You are of royalty and magnificence. Do not forget this.
I pray this serves to lift and enlighten.
In Jesus name, for the Whole of Christ, Amen.
Please bring a prayer and the Holy Spirit with you. Text is bold type, my comments *asterixed*.
To “change your mind” means to place it at the disposal of True authority. The miracle is thus a sign that the mind has elected to be guided by Christ in HIS service.
*Remember authority is claiming what you believe. Christ is the essence of our true selves. Christ is the True Authority and we are guided by the Holy Spirit to serve Christ in ourselves and what appears to be others (appears because while they appear separate, they are truly a part of Christ and thus a part of each of us).
*Jesus teaches us this without acknowledging that Christ is the one that put guilt, conflict, and fear within our subconscious in the first place by believing in separation which leads to duality, scarcity, and hierarchy. Because he never experienced any of those things except in body, which he did not put above spirit or mind.
*Jesus, as firstborn of Christ in spirit, does not acknowledge those things in his mind and heart. He has no way to relate to them. He was and is still One, still Whole, in complete connection with Christ and each of us.
*That is what makes him the one who can direct the Atonement. His confidence in being one with Christ, the god of this world is sure. He has accepted the Atonement for himself. But Jesus is not Whole, any more than Christ is, without all of us. Just as God is not Whole without Christ.
*His knowledge of being in Christ is complete. He does not have the similar struggles that you and I do, because that experience never came to him at his birth or creation. His struggle was having patience with all of us and the suffering we are willing to experience instead of acknowledging who we truly are and receiving God’s blessings and abundance.
*The rest of us each have the confusion in different degrees. We do not need to judge anyone for this. It comes from the error of Christ that he could separate from God which is an impossibility.
*Again, the reason that Jesus is not as affected by this is because he was the first of Christ’s thoughts or creations. He is affected by it because he manifested in flesh and blood as we did, so he would die in the flesh. This is my belief and understanding and it is significant. (I know this is not the normal teaching about Jesus, but I have this belief for a lot of good reasons which, I apologize, are too lengthy to go into here.)
*It is not deliverance of death that Jesus wants to free us from, because death is an impossibility to begin with. Rather he seeks to grant us deliverance from the belief in death. Which is a transition in the mind. And this is all geared to waking Christ up from his dream of separation from His Father.
The abundance of Christ is the natural result of choosing to follow him.
*God wants to bless His Son. That is each of us, wherever we are. Abundance, of all sorts, is our heritage.
P.S. The reason you have been late recently (for work) because you were taking dictation is merely because you didn’t remember to ask me when to stop.
*It appears that Jesus is trying to get her to acknowledge his significant role here. His position in birth is significant to this linear space and time. And his role should not be under-estimated. Even if it has been confused over time.
This is an example of the “indiscriminate or uncontrolled” miracle-working we already spoke of. It is well-meant but ill-advised.
*It seems within the linear time frame Jesus really needs to lead us. He is Christ’s Chief Ambassador, if you will. His confidence in his connection with deity is so solid that he has already accepted and taken part in the Atonement. Again, this is why he leads us in it. And please understand we are united, equally as Christ, God’s Son.
I prompted that call from Jack (taxi man – couldn’t pick HS up, etc.) to show you that this is not necessary. Also, the other man needed the money more today.
*Can you hear and see Jesus’ compassion and awareness of all of his brothers?
Note that you managed to fill your scribal role with no interruptions and were also on time.
*Note the clarity of his observations.
Note also that you closed the book & put it aside WITHOUT consulting me.
*She is a scribe after all, taking dictation. Was she not willing to listen to Jesus or bring him into the equation? Remember that these words were coming into her mind via her own voice. There was a reluctance on the part of Helen to take credit for what she wrote, but it also appears there was a reluctance for her to give credit to the one who gave the words to her.
*According to the three people who worked closest with her on this project she had this strain on her relationship with Jesus to the end. In a video with Bill, Judy, and Ken shortly after her death Bill tells the story of how she asked Jesus why he did not help her, and his reply was “because you were ashamed of me”.
*She was a brilliant woman of academia and professionalism. That was her “role” here in the flesh. It seemed to get in the way of her relationship with Jesus, and others, on a personal level. Jesus is doing his best to give her all the opportunity for growth that she is willing to receive.
Ask “Is that all?”
add the following:
These notes are serving, among other things, to replace the “handwriting on the wall” which you once saw next to your own altar, which read “You have been weighed in the balance & found wanting.”
*Jesus was aware of all the components of her life. As he is of ours. This has to do with his position as first “born” of Christ. He has observed all of what Christ has manifested and he has retained a memory of it. He had this same ability while on earth in the flesh as Jesus, of Nazareth. (Recall him telling the woman at the well of her personal history?)
Scribes MUST learn Christ-control, to replace their former habits, which DID produce scarcity rather than abundance.
*Learning Christ-control rather than false-ego control will bless our lives. Many are doing so all around the world. Whether they use his name or not, it is being connected to the divine within them and then following their inner guidance. You might call it intuition, gut, or a hunch. Scribes, or those who speak to bear witness of Christ in whatever capacity or under whatever name must have this connection.
From errors of this kind, the sense of deprivation IS inevitable, but very easily corrected.
*When we unite with the Holy Spirit and trust His guidance, we reach greater heights in things that matter to us in all areas of our lives. This is how we correct errors of this kind.
*This kind being ““indiscriminate or uncontrolled” miracle-working”, I am thinking that this is when we try to take the reins before we are ready. It appears that Jesus needs to be the director, at least for a time. Perhaps until we are willing and able to accept the Atonement for ourselves and know that we are connected to our Father, Christ, and that we have inherited all that the Father has. As has He.
*This text was not easy to comment on because of what it brought to mind. Prayer and days, making sure my mind was clear and hearing what I was to write. I had a lot of rewrites on this. These are deep and traditionally different understandings of Jesus and Christ. It can even sound scary, but only to those who are focused on the body and vengeance for themselves.

Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid
The Grail Knight; romance, illusion, seeking the sacred
Humanity will seek for the sacred till it is found. You cannot hold it in your hand and give it to another person. You have to desire it for yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to show you where it is. He will show you that it is you in God, where you have always been.
The illusion is what we see because we believe that the body is who we are. When we seek to recognize the spiritual component of ourselves and each other we are given a clearer understanding of who we are.
Romance. Ah, romance. Is it illusion or is it more real than we currently believe? I suspect that it is a part of the illusion that gives us a glimpse of what is real and sacred. A bit of our true selves, in fact. I will not elaborate because it is a stretch from where we are today, but I do have reasonable reason to suspect this may be the case from many sources. 😉
The Eagle; spirit, integrity, connection to the angelic realm
The eagle flies over the storm and so he is not caught up in it. To escape the illusion we live in we have to be willing to reach for a higher truth than our senses are able to give us. We must use all of our resources. We must trust ourselves and use our intuition. We must know our addicted and frightened inner voice from the voice of Spirit that guides us to truth one small step at a time. He will not take us faster than we are willing. He will not lead us into fear.
I do suspect there may be spirits that would lead us into fear if we gave them the opportunity but that is where integrity comes in. And a sincere heart that reaches for truth wherever it finds it and applies it in everyday life. You will be warned when danger is near so do not ignore those promptings, hunches, or warnings.
We are all in this together and there is more to life than the eye of humanity can see. One small step at a time with the guidance of the Holy Spirit will lead you safely where you want to go.
And YES, angels await your request for assistance and guidance. Sometimes they can step in. More often they wait for our invitation.
The Hawk; omens, messages
Are you mindful? Are you aware? Do you keep your eyes and ears open for inspiration, guidance, warnings? This is the second card to remind us to be alert.
Nature is willing to lend a hand to the divine to communicate with those who are caught in the illusion. There are many signs in nature. It will speak to you in any of its many forms if you will but listen.
The trees have always shared so much with me. Their falling leaves told me a new day would come. Their strength and sturdiness told me I could weather the storms. Their roots told me I was connected to a whole that was bigger than I understood. Did they say these things with words? Of course not. It was said through a sensing, a feeling.
Your witness may come from the waters or from stones, or clouds. Perhaps your pets or the wild animals in your neighborhood. Let your mind be free and listen with the heart of a child; innocent and open to believing.
There is risk in action, is there not? There is risk in “thinking outside the box”. What will others think or say? Yet, what is the risk of not acting? Atrophy is death. Of which there is no such thing in reality but we can convince ourselves that there is.
Being “in the moment” is a risk. Being “present”. Feeling what is going on inside of us right now. Knowing what we are thinking, is it my thoughts or someone else’s. Do I want that thought to be a part of me or can I just let it breeze right on by and claim only what I truly want to identify with?
Being aware of all our senses; touch, smell, sight, taste, hearing, sensing/intuition, that gut feeling, a sixth sense that opens up another world to us. Isn’t that what we want. A world that is safe and magical. A world that has abundance for all of its inhabitants. Will you take the risk?
You are not mistaken in the idea that there is something more to being than what you understand right now. Do not be afraid to ask questions and expand your view.
You have assistance. Ask for help from the divine in whatever terminology works for you. And do not forget to fly above the storm. Do not get caught in the web of human trauma, or pleasure for that matter. Know that there is one truth for all and only in backing up and looking at the bigger picture can we begin to see it.
You came here to act and action demands risk. Walk in faith. Not fear. You come from God/the Divine/All that IS. Your light of courage will bless the world. Even when it seems your world is crumbling. And just because you may be doing well, understand that we are One and if one of us suffer, we all do. Thank you for being here and taking the risk. You are loved.
I pray this serves to lift and strengthen you.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
We are connected one to another. Jesus is a part of this connection. We witness for each other as The Son of God.
You took a lot of notes on “Those who are ashamed of Me before men, them will I be ashamed of before God.” This was rather carefully clarified, even though the quotation is not quite right, but it doesn’t matter.
*King James Version reads: Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
*Remember that these are not the direct words of Jesus but the translation many years later and translation has to go through the translators view of the world. Do not get riled up over the verbiage “adulterous and sinful generation”. It is only referring to the fact that we do not know who we are as children of God/Christ.
*Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.
The important thing is that elsewhere in the Bible it also says “Those who represent (or plead for) Me to men will be represented (or pleaded for) BY Me before God.”
(Note: This quotation is also not the correct Biblical phrasing, but it IS what it means.)
Note that one who represents also “witnesses for.” The quotation thus means that you represent or “witness for” the authority in whom you believe.
*We understood last time that we are the authors of what we believe in and it is logical that this is what we live by.
Your witnessing DEMONSTRATES your belief, and thus strengthens it.
*Witnessing is portrayed in your existence. What you think, how you behave, how you speak, how you treat others, what you choose to do with your time, etc..
I assure you that I will “witness for” anyone who lets me, and to whatever extent he himself permits it.
*This Jesus can say because he knows of our “being”; our creation in Christ.
Those who witness for me are expressing, thru their miracles, that they have abandoned deprivation in favor of the abundance they have learned BELONGS to them.
*I cherish this as a promise. Today at 63 I am not serving the community in ways that I have done in the past. I would like to help those who cannot help themselves, but even there I have no desire to rush out, because I know that any action on my part brings out jealousy or self-recrimination on behalf of others and I do not desire that.
*Even in having friends or associates, it is so clear to me the pull and push that occurs as we are invited to enter into someone else’s agenda and made-up world. As you get older, no one is “alone” and “free”, it is not unlike that of when you are a child. If there is family or other organizations they belong to you become entangled in their agenda and assumptions, as well.
*I have found that I have greater peace and sense of connection with creation when I am in a meditative state of prayer and study.
*This issue will not be resolved until Christ is acknowledged and recognized. Whether we call him by that name or not. Even amongst believers fear directs behavior toward one another and not the recognition of Christ in each other and ourselves.
*The Miracle of seeing Christ where ever you go and in whom ever you encounter is a gift we give to one another as it honors the Oneness and Wholeness that we are.
Text is in bold. My comments are *’d. Please invite the Holy Spirit to this review. I am using the 2003 edition from Hungary. I share as I am guided by the Spirit at this time in my life with the intent to lift humanity out of chaos.
I pray this serves.

Grace Cards by Cheryl Richardson
Act: Charge forward. When we combine action with unwavering faith, the power of grace will meet our needs.
This one challenges me. I am wondering if action is really what needs to happen. I understand the concept of meditation also and stepping out of the acting world. Here is the counsel for this week. Act in faith and grace will meet our needs. One step at a time.
Vision: Pay attention. There are signs, symbols, and messages Divinely placed in our path to guide us in the right direction.
I did get some signs today. They suggested that I not be afraid to act as well. This life is still for experiencing. You have had challenges. Okay, but do not let that stop you from stepping out there and engaging with life again. Risk is less if your eyes are open and willing to embrace the moment.
Perception: See the past through the lens of grace. All that occurs is designed to support our spiritual evolution.
The lens of grace. Forgiveness, learning, I get it. It does get hard though to go out there when you get shot down on a regular basis. I almost feel like I can forgive best in my own head and heart all alone. People have been teachers to me throughout life. I have learned so much. And I do forgive in a healthier way now since I forgive Christ for the mistake that he had separated from God.
Soul: Practice good soul care. The quality of our outer life is always dependent on the quality of care we give our soul.
I wonder if sometimes the action that we need to take is to be kind to ourselves? This last card reminds me that we have a right and a responsibility to take care of ourselves. We do not have to excuse, justify, or explain to others why we are making the choices that we are, We simply have to quietly do as the Holy Spirit prompts us.
Act in faith.
According to the vision you have personally been given through those symbols and promptings that you recognize as coming from the Holy Spirit.
Have the lens of the forgiveness of the Son of God be your view upon the challenges that you have faced and even on the ones that you face today. It will clear a path as you move forward and give you comfort in the present.
Listen to the still small voice that guides you to know where you are safe and whole. That lets you know when you are going in the correct direction and when you are off base. Do not be swayed by the voices of peers or social norm. Just because millions may do it or think that way does not mean that it is right for you.
Act in unwavering faith and trust that the grace of God goes with you.
I pray this serves you.
In the name of Christ, Amen.
Animal Tarot Cards by RV
14 Balance Zebra
“By generating varying points of view, you can generate an extraordinary new idea! Compromise with others and collaborate to discover a better solution.”
We are diverse and unique with varying views, even though we, as a whole, are the One Christ.
We truly can bring the diversity together and create a new world for our children to experience.
One plus four is five suggesting some bumpy roads, but nothing that is not able to be worked out.
2 High Priestess Owl
“This is a time to pause and reflect, not to take action. Trust in your spiritual gifts, as nothing is hidden from your Divine intuition.”
Journaling is a wonderful way to clear out the cobwebs and see where you are emotionally. You will see when negativity is having too much influence. Make note of synchronicities and coincidences.
Put a “food for thought” passage on the back burner of your brain as you begin your day and reflect on any inspirational thoughts or ideas. Build your ability to trust your intuition by following it.
Two suggests a partnership, perhaps with our guides and guardian angels.
Seven of Winter, Magpie
“Caution will help you avoid the loss of valuables, including non-material resources (such as time or peace of mind). Be aware of the results of your actions, as well as what others might be doing behind your back.”
What about relationships? I know that the “in” thing is to just remove yourself from people. May I suggest that if you need to physically do so that you do not just “kick them to the curb” but that you Keep them in prayer and wish them well?
That being all connected is an interesting thing. We can never lose what is real and our belonging to one another as the Body of Christ is real. We can look at behavior or circumstance that we cannot accept as part of the illusion that will disappear when we truly understand who we are in God and as Christ.
In the meantime, you can trust that things may be tricky and you may not be able to get along with everyone. Healthy boundaries, while we acknowledge that we are One will be so helpful!
Seven suggests soul searching and possibly wanting more out of life. The illusion can make us feel that we are not all that we need to be or that we do not have all that we need to have and this is not the case. Be alert and then walk in confidence.
Queen of Summer, Swan
“This is a time of deep emotions and heightened intuition that you can trust completely. Be mindful you don’t ignore your own needs while caring for others.”
Here is our intuition again, as well as a caution to take care of ourselves while we show compassion and courtesy to others. Strong emotional intelligence can be graceful and beautiful. This may also remind us of the “ugly duckling” so that we do not judge ourselves too harshly and know what we have the potential to become.
Compromise and balance among all persons is a real possibility!
Pause and reflect. Write and allow yourself freedom of expression to reveal your Divine intuition. Or find the outlet that allows you to be in touch with your inner self.
Know you are still in the world of illusion and it will appear that things can go awry. Be alert and give it your best, knowing that others are confused here also.
Building your recognition of and relationship to the inner you is a terrific goal in the lives that we live daily in the illusion. Knowing our potential and that great emotion can be dealt with in a dignified and royal manner is a thing of beauty.
Life will seem to get gangling at times. Introspection and perspective can help us maintain a sense of dignity and grace as we remember the gifts that we can uncover as we remember who and what we are.
I pray this serves,
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
I do not like to quarrel with people and I will not debate or defend what I know. I follow the Spirit to find the Whole Truth. I use to think I could speak about it, but today I do not know. There are a lot of people out there “beating around the bush” and maybe humanity needs that for a while longer. I do know that as long as we are willing to accept suffering on any plane we will not be ready to accept what we are. I will just quietly live my life and grow in understanding till I am shown that I need to do something else. Fast or slow, humanity will not change the outcome because God IS.
36. Wholeness is the perceptual content of the miracle. It thus corrects (or atones for) the faulty perception of lack.
We now turn to the fundamental distinction between miracles and projection.
The stimulus MUST precede the response, and must also (determine) (influence) the kind of response that is evoked.
*i. e. Law of Attraction, you must be in the correct alignment to receive your desires.
The relationships of S and R are extremely intimate.
(The behavioristic terminology is because this part deals with behavior.)
Behavior IS response, so that the question “response to what?” becomes crucial.
Stimuli of all kinds are identified thru perception. You perceive the stimulus and behave accordingly. It follows, then, that :
As ye perceive
So will ye behave
(Hs raises point that Biblical language is hardly behavioristic terminology. Answer: No, but they needn’t be OUT of accord with each other, either.)
*Jesus is asking her to give herself a chance to see the Bible language in a different persective.
*We really need to back out of our boxes as we categorize things and look at the big picture. We will find that many of the worlds various teachings say the same things in different ways.
Consider the Golden Rule again. You are asked to behave towards others as you would have them behave toward you. This means that the perception of both must be accurate, since the Golden Rule is the Order for appropriate behavior. You can’t behave appropriately unless you perceive accurately, because appropriate behavior DEPENDS on lack of level confusion. The presence of level confusion always results in variable reality testing, and hence variability in behavioral appropriateness.
*It can be difficult for humanity to see their world from one lens. We want to see school in this window, work, in this window, family in this window. What a journey with the Holy Spirit allows you to do is to look with spiritual eyes on everything. This is what Jesus is showing Helen.
All forms of self image debasement are FUNDAMENTAL perceptual distortions. They inevitably produce either self contempt or projection, and usually both.
*In other words, we are not seeing ourselves as the Son of God, that we are. (Debasement is the action or process of reducing the quality or value of something.)
Since you and your neighbor are equal members of the same family, as you perceive both, so will you behave toward both.
*This is interesting and perhaps speaks of the personal opinions of Helen. Certainly, in the human condition (past and present) there have been those who do not consider all of the human race from the same family. (Could we say he meant of the same species etc., in other words we would not “typically” associate with another human as we would a worm or a fish.)
*Then again, he is saying it as a matter of fact that you and your neighbor are equal members of the same family. Very powerful statement, I suspect. It is sad to reflect on how humanity has too often, not caught on to or respected this truth.
The way to perceive for Golden Rule behavior is to look out from the perception of your own holiness and perceive the holiness of others.
*Isn’t that beautiful! Holiness is Wholeness, being one with God. What an entirely different way to engage with the world! It is fairly new to me, but it is rather freeing! My sense of responsibility and boundaries have really altered. I am currently in the process of integrating this concept/truth into my day to day life.
*It does give me a sense of comfort and wellness that is beyond anything that I have had before. This is because I do not feel responsible for how other people’s lives go. I am responsible to myself and how I think, and I assist and share where I can, but I am learning that we all create the reality that we are believing. Hence, I want to spend my energies believing and experiencing the grace and glory of God. As well as His abundance and protection.
*It is a marvelous adventure!
