Teachings From The Art Of Spiritual Peace Making

Stepping Forward in Power
What is power? To the world you created in your imagination, power is the ability to assert your will over another person or the environment itself. Everything in this world that claims to be true is actually the opposite of what is really true.   The world’s ideas of power is in reality the definition of powerlessness, simply because it is based upon a  false foundation: that you can decrease another person’s power and, in doing so, increase your own.   In reality, decreasing another person’s power is the same as decreasing your own.   Therefore, the opposite must also be true: increasing another person’s power increases yours.   Give everything to everything.   You are here to be truly happy, and that will only happen as you make others happy.   If you want love, give love and you will have love.  Give love with out discretion to everyone.

Prayers by Toni Carmine Salerno

Within my heart flows a river of love.
I am one with the eternal light of creation.
I manifest my dreams.
I create abundance in my life through love.

At the heart of all creation only love exists.
It stirs within my heart as it moves the earth and stars through the endless cycles.
All is interwoven with light. All is interconnected through love.

I love and accept myself as I am.
I love and accept the world as it is.
Deep in my heart I know,
that beyond my perceptions of good and bad, only love exists.

We pray for love to heal and guide us,
To illuminate our hearts and minds
So that we may all come to see and feel the sacred flame of light
We each hold within. For then we shall truly know beyond all doubt,
That only love is real, only love is eternal.

I may not have the power to change the world,
but I have the power to change my perception of it.

 

 

Concepts FromThe Course In Miracles

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing real exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent the one who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do because the one who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever he/she wishes, knowing the he/she  goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let him/her teach me to heal.

Conflict is an expression of fear.
Know first that this is fear.
Fear arises from lack of love.
The only remedy for lack of love is perfect love.
Perfect love is the atonement.

Teach only love for that is what you are.

You are the holy home of God.

Forgiveness offers me everything I want.
Today I have accepted this as true.
Today I have received the gifts of God.

If I defend myself I am attacked.
But in defenselessness I will be strong, and I will learn what my defenses hide.

By grace I live. By grace I am released.
By grace I give. By grace I will release.

Only my condemnation injures me.
Only my forgiveness sets me free.

I am not a body. I am free.
I am still as God created me.

Message From The Emissaries Of Light

There are two simple truths you need to accept if our are to move effortlessly into the New World, the world which is based on the laws of love. The first message is YOU ARE READY.   You are ready to release the fearful beliefs that have kept you bound to the concept of separation.  You are ready to accept the reality of love that is the foundation of your existence.   And you are ready to give love to everyone in every way, for that is the only way you will fully experience it for yourself.

The second message is YOU ARE HOLY.  Who you really are is beyond the scope of your imagination.   If you are one with the divine pulse of creation, then you are also one with the holiness of God.  When you realize this, when you begin to perceive this truth within everyone you meet, including yourself, then the world will change by itself.   You are holy, and that cannot change.   When you accept that you are ready, and that the truth in you is the very essence of holiness, then you will recognize the next teacher, The messenger of Love.   It is this teacher who will take you through the door of eternity, to the very seat of the soul.
