"Everyday I say to myself, today I will begin." - St. Anthony of the Desert Today, we begin.  This very moment, we begin... remembering that we ARE what's appearing as this moment, we are the substratum of the Now, we are the  Christ.  We celebrate the birth of Jesus today, the birth of the awareness of the Christ among us, and now, the birth of our awareness of the Christ within us.  Repeat this mantra by Herb Fitch, "I am not man or woman, I live the day as I, Spirit", and notice how you're already, effortlessly detached from the body.   There's some space (t)here, naturally.  You, as Awareness, don't have to try to detangle your Self from the body, you already are the witness.  You already are Love.  Be That, by feeling It and remembering to feel It all day.  "Blessed is he who came into being before he came into being."

You're feeling absolutely fantastic this morning! But not for the reason you think. You don't feel good because it's Christmas Eve. You don't feel good because you know what's under the tree, or even because you're off work or have no professional Zoom meetings tomorrow (likely for a whole week!), or that your favorite food is being prepared, or that your playlist is FIRE and the Temptations are going in on ‘Silent Night'.All of these things may very well seem to be happening, but they're not causing that quiet-Joy you're aware of. You're just presently in alignment... allowing yourself to feel good, to experience God. You're currently BEing your true Self! This is your natural state— one of uncaused joy, ease, love, relaxation and peace. What people call ‘The Christmas Spirit' is your original nature, and you can feel this way even on your first day back to work, if you give yourself permission.God didn't come closer this morning, and It won't get further away next week. We just changed the way we are living in this moment. And now we must keep living this way... remembering to recognize that the Light is ALWAYS on inside. That we are this Light.If you can stop waiting for special occasions to remember this background Joy, to feel Go(o)d, to be yourSelf, your life will change drastically from the inside out and very rapidly. I promise you. #MerryChristmasWith you in and AS Christhood,@curlynikki▶▶LOVE CHARGING STATION, Live, Daily, Group Practice-  6:30am ET (and Forum!)https://forum.curlynikki.com/▶▶Join our new forum, GoOD Friends and enter the Mala Giveaway!Support the show:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings________________________________________Today's Quotes:"We all think of the Lord when troubled,never when at peace.But if we held our faith during peace,there would be no trouble."-Kabir Ke Dohe via IG“This is the supreme meditation, this is the supreme worship: the continuous and unbroken awareness of the indwelling presence, inner light or consciousness.

It opens.I've been knocking from the inside.”-Rumi"In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look and learn, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either that key or the door to open, except yourself."-J. Krishnamurti"The key is to be in a state of permanent connectedness with your inner body - to feel it all times. This will rapidly deepen and transform your life."-Eckhart Tolle."Real death is death of the ego.Real birth is to dwell in one's natural state."-Ramana Paravidyopanishad "Your mind will tell you go somewhere else, go do this and go do that, keep searching, keep looking. It will never tell you there's nothing to look for. It will never tell you there's nothing to do. It will never tell you just be yourself, awaken.It will put you through all kinds of trials and tribulations. It will even make you believe that the more you suffer, the greater the value. But if you're wise, you will simply observe, and watch your mind telling you all these things. You will not fight, because your mind will always win.You will simply dissolve your mind through observation, through becoming the witness, or by asking "to whom do these thoughts come?" And the mind will grow weaker. But it will really fight you. It will cause you to observe many dastardly things in this world, and perhaps some upheavals in your life also. To make you believe in your mind and its power. I guess that's what Jesus meant when he said "Get thee behind me Satan!"In other words his mind was trying to tell him things are wrong, you're wasting your time. So he named his mind Satan. And told it "don't bother me, don't come up with all these things: I don't believe in you, you're a liar." That's exactly what you must do. Let the mind show us the worst. Allow the ego to do what it wants.But you be the observer, the witness. Hold on tight to the 'I. And follow the I thread to the heart. And you'll start laughing for you'll come to the conclusion, there never was a mind, there never was an I, there never was an ego, there never were problems, there never was a world, there never was a personal God, there never was karma, there's no such thing as enlightenment, there's no such thing as awakening.

Nowhere else will it be found, and no one can sell or rent it to us. There may well appear merchants of happiness with pacifiers that can calm the troubles of our days and nights for a while.

And you will not try to choose in what ways one has to come out, what means have to be adopted, and which door is the right door. These things are irrelevant when the house is on fire. When you know what attachment is, the house is on fire. You can put it aside.  There is no need to ask how. It is absolutely a fire, a hell. You can jump out of it. This sutra says: 'Toss attachment for body aside, realizing I am everywhere.'  And the moment you toss aside the attachment, you will realize you are everywhere. Because of this attachment you feel you are limited by the body. It is not the body which is limiting you; it is your attachment to it. It is not the body which is making a barrier between you and the reality; it is your attachment to it. Once you know what the attachment is not there, there is no body to you.

There is a phenomenal amount of energy which supports you because the whole life process - from a microbe to a worm, to an insect, to a bird, to an animal, to a tree, to a plant - every one of them is living with this intention: they want to be something more than what they are right now. That intention creates a kind of consecration of its own, it creates a certain sacredness of its own. If you allow the planet to be just the way it was, and if you simply sit here or sleep, you will find the whole place will become like a consecrated space...This is the reason why yogis always withdrew into forests and mountain caves.  Because just sitting there, the intention of nature is crystal clear to you. The main thing is to grow beyond all limitations which are restricting you right now. That intention is being expressed by every grain of soil out there - don't miss it!

Peace can knock over our lives and all the walls we erect to protect ourselves from it. Peace can be very gentle, like waves lapping at the shore. But the power of peace can be frightening, at least in the beginning, for those who become aware how separate their lives have been from the presence in the silence.

You have the right; it's your inner domain. But instead of finding silence, you're going to listen to incessant chatter: “Why am I doing this? I have more important things to do. This is a waste of time. There's nobody in here but me. What's this all about?”Right on cue, there's your roommate. You may have a clear intention to be quiet inside, but your roommate won't cooperate. And it's not just when you try to be quiet. It has something to say about everything you look at: “I like it. I don't like it. This is good. That's bad.” It just talks and talks. You don't generally notice because you don't step back from it. You're so close that you don't realize that you're actually hypnotized into listening to it. Basically, you're not alone in there. There are two distinct aspects of your inner being. The first is you, the awareness, the witness, the center of your willful intentions; and the other is that which you watch. The problem is, the part that you watch never shuts up. If you could get rid of that part, even for a moment, the peace and serenity would be the nicest vacation you've ever had."-Singer, Michael A.. The Untethered Soul (p. 17)Support the show

So that who you think you are has to die in the process."-Ram Dass “Many misunderstandings and false beliefs about Christ will clear if you realize that there is no past or future in Christ. To say that Christ was or will be is a contradiction in terms. Jesus was. He was a man who lived two thousand years ago and realized divine presence, his true nature. And so he said: “Before Abraham was, I am.” He did not say: “I already existed before Abraham was born.” That would have meant that he was still within the dimension of time and form identity. The words I am used in a sentence that starts in the past tense indicate a radical shift, a discontinuity in the temporal dimension. It is a Zen-like statement of great profundity. Jesus attempted to convey directly, not through discursive thought, the meaning of presence, of self-realization. He had gone beyond the consciousness dimension governed by time, into the realm of the timeless. The dimension of eternity had come into this world. Eternity, of course, does not mean endless time, but no time. Thus, the man Jesus became Christ, a vehicle for pure consciousness. And what is God's self-definition in the Bible? Did God say, “I have always been, and I always will be?” Of course not. That would have given reality to past and future. God said: “I AM THAT I AM.” No time here, just presence.”- Excerpt From, 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle and Now...And NOW :) I Love youuuu!  Support the show

"Similarly," he continued, "and this is just tour hundred thousand dollars of worldly treasure, But inside us, at the third eye center, there is a limitless wonderful treasure and for that we are to devote all our time.  This treasure never decreases. One can even take it with one after leaving the body. It is not a worldly kind of wealth.  If you take one piece from a worldly treasure, then it will always be one piece less.

The transition to our realized Christhood changes our life from one of getting to one of letting. we let that mind be in us which was also in Christ Jesus: we let "the imprisoned splendor escape."  The whole purpose of our life changes as this enlightened awareness lifts consciousness. the kingdom is within not outside to get.  Through meditation we enter that kingdom and let it flow out from our conscious oneness with god. we are then a blessing to all we meet. we are no longer in bondage to getting: we are released into the joy of letting. "-A message for the ages - Joel Goldsmith " As you sit with me in the space of deliberate influence I will highlight the direction I have intended for you to travel. I will guide you clearly and precisely as you allow the influence of my spirit to make its mark, without resistance or opposition. I know sometimes you resist unknowingly and unintentionally. I know sometimes you resist, not because you want to resist my will, but because you do not recognize what I am saying. You do not recognize my voice, ways, or timing so you unintentionally resist what I'm giving you.Understand as you walk with me and continue to abide with me, all of these interactions will become more and more familiar as they happen more and more frequently. You will recognize My signature, and will see it clearly without question, and will do so from a greater distance. And with this capacity to discern more quickly and more accurately, you will be poised to cooperate with me more and more, operating with less and less confusion and misunderstanding, and more and more clarity and precision with the wisdom, discernment, and understanding I have given you."-Neil Vermillion, Daily Newsletter  @neilvermillion via IG "If you are irritated byevery rub, how willyou be polished?"- RumiSupport the show

At that moment, what sort of face did you carry? Make that experience and expression the baseline of your life.  You should not come below that high that you already know. You can only exist above that benchmark. Make the high point of your life the base for the future! The tools for transformation are there. You are at the right time in history. This is a great time for blossoming into your fullest. When I am here, you should not aspire for the mundane. Your goal should be nothing less than the Ultimate."-Sadhguru Before outer conditions can change, your reaction to them must stop, for it is your reaction that perpetuates them by giving truth to the lie.  Refuse to do something about nothing. Reacting to thoughts about the material world is like a hypnotized stage subject swinging at an imaginary opponent.  The secret to non-reaction is in remembering that you are already infinite God-consciousness.  We are to let thoughts pass out of us and thus uncondition our mind. As they are passing out, don't pull them back by thinking about them. The only reaction you should have is to omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence; that reaction being awe and gratitude that you are one with all that is. God-consciousness is always acting, never reacting."-Joel Goldsmith "Fear says 'what if'Faith says 'even if'"-@prayerteam via IG "WHENEVER HE LOOKS AT YOUGod sees nothing in us that He has not given,Everything is empty until He placeswhat He wishes into it.The soul is like an uninhabited worldthat comes to life only whenGod lays His headagainst us.The delight a child can knowtossing a ball into the air,my Lord confessed He experienceswhenever He looks at you.God sees nothing in usthat He has not given."-St. Thomas Aquinas, Love Poems From God by Daniel Ladinsky“Smiling can be a deliberate, intentioned act.

You will light up your heart and light up the room.”-Neale Donald Walsch“When you are in readiness, you are in wakefulness. A smile can take you there. A simple smile.
