Actually, love does pay the rent

The Beatles said that all you need is love. Skeptics might respond that love doesn’t pay the rent. To that, I say hell yes it does!

Love isn’t something limited to a romantic relationship. We aren’t talking just about holding hands and walking into the sunset (though that kind of love is nice too). We’re talking about love as a guiding force in everything you do.

At work, respond to challenges lovingly, patiently, and with care. Who do you think will have more success? The negative, selfish person or the one lifting everyone’s mood with kindness and presence while solving every problem and handling every challenge without any stress, struggle or conflict? Love wins easily. There is no competition.

Nothing is more practical and effective as a guiding force than love. What is the alternative? Egoic manipulation, competition and attack? This will ultimately end relationships, isolate you, and remove opportunity from your life.

Love—the energy of creation—is the source of all value. Here you are unstoppable. Love is all you need, and it even pays the rent.

Awaken to love and forget what you are not

Awaken to love and discover that you are not vulnerable, not afraid, not desperate, not lacking or in need of anything. You are not too much, not too little, not right and not wrong.

You are not an imperfect body, nor a bank account, nor any of your possessions. On the deepest level, you are neither attractive nor ugly—because your identity is in the beauty of your truth.

Awakened to love, you are not depressed, not bored, not anxious and not tired. You are not lazy and not ambitious. You are not particularly talented or unique—yet perfectly capable of doing something that everyone will recognize as beautiful and perfect.

Awaken to love and forget what you are not. There is nothing you need to do except choose the loving response with 100% faith in every situation and circumstance. Choose the loving response with your partner, with your kids, with your parents and family. Now watch your relationships heal. Choose the loving response in your work and watch your earnings grow and stress dissolve. Choose the loving response even when others are trying to teach you a lesson or diminish you in some way. Watch the problem dissolve.

Love is seeing past what is unreal to recognize the same truth in others that you recognize in yourself. Communicate in an honest way that makes this dimension real, not all the mind-chatter on the surface. Forgive, accept, open your mind, open your heart, serve and create. Feel your energy shift in love.

We are what is sometimes call the "second coming" of Jesus Christ

Some are waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ—the man worshiped as spirit made flesh. But what can they possibly be waiting for?

Jesus was a man who recognized his formless soul as his eternal identity. Millions of us around the world have also recognized the same truth he taught. I believe that this collective awakening we are experiencing is the second coming and that the word “antichrist” or “devil” is just another word for ego. The “second coming” happens when the majority of people transcend ego and live in truth.

Eckhart Tolle writes, “If Christ were to return tomorrow in some externalized form, what could he or she possibly say to you other than this: I am the truth, divine presence, eternal life within you, here and now.”

I Am is the most powerful, profound religious or spiritual statement because it removes time and conditions—recognizing the eternal and formless as what is real. “I am” is awareness of the eternal soul within you here and now.

Eternity does not mean that time goes on forever. It means that time isn’t real—that only the now is. What humans call time is only the movement of form in the eternal present. All form is unstable, impermanent, ultimately meaningless and unreal. Now we sense that which is real—the realm where words and perception fall short.

In John 8:58, Jesus declared, “Before Abraham was born, I am!” We are the soul, the timeless essence. There is something invisible within us that is life, that makes us human, that connects us with all other forms of life and removes all differences. The energy of this realm is love. In love, you are divine, and you are eternal.

Today we can celebrate the second coming that is us.

Outer success flows from inner abundance.

So much of our attention is usually focused on what we think we are lacking. Minds racing and bodies stressed, we wonder “How will I ever get there? Why is it taking so long? What’s wrong with me? Why is the world against me?”

Ambitions are wonderful. We naturally want to strive toward our full potential in life and of course this includes external success. But this urge can no longer overshadow the fact that everything real is already ours and, to access it, we need only look within.

The longing, the striving, the sacrificing, the sickness and fear inside—it only exists when we get ahead of ourselves. We strive for external success before becoming aware of the perfectly complete internal dimension.

Everything we most deeply desire is experienced within: a feeling, happiness, love, beauty, bliss, safety, wisdom, peace, inspiration, excitement, and fun. Other people and particular life situations can help you get there, but the source of these energies is always within.
The ultimate destination you seek is what you already have inside. This can be accessed now by undoing perspectives and thought systems that have blocked it. This requires an unshakable desire for truth and honesty as well as a bit of practice.

Perhaps the priorities have been all wrong. Rather than seeking externally as the source of what we desire internally, now we learn to access it all internally and then effortlessly extend it externally. Outer success flows from inner abundance.

Give up the ego and sacrifice nothing.

Even as the world today is entirely dominated by ego, most people don’t really know what it is. The ego disguises itself by convincing you that it is you and you are it. Only by looking at what the ego really is can you recognize that it is not you.

According to the ego’s self-serving thought system, you are nothing more than your fearful and selfish thoughts. Fear everyone and everything. Look out for yourself. Be normal, fit in, yet somehow show that you are special and unique. Fear the world’s institutions, which you believe have real power.

According to the ego, happiness will come in the future when you are successful, respected, rich, famous, and when you get all the people around you to do what they are supposed to do. Happiness requires that you withhold truth, manipulate, lie—do whatever it takes. Set goals. Reach toward your destination. Work harder. Fight for it. Stand up for yourself. The story of your past defines you. Trust only yourself, even as you continue to blow with the wind.

The ego is nothing more than an insane, desperate and confused mind racing—a tree without roots or a ship without a rudder. Most people don’t know that it is possible to let all of this go while sacrificing nothing. Sacrifice is only to be found in ego, not beyond it. This sacrifice causes many problems—physical suffering, illness, conflict, fear, exhaustion, depression and others. This is the body’s reaction to the ego’s insane, panicked thoughts.

The ego’s selfish drive to seek happiness at any cost is the cause of human misery, poverty, war and environmental disaster. This sick thought system would have us sacrifice other humans, the planet, our own health and anything or anyone that gets in the way of our thoughts. While they may pretend, no person has ever found true and lasting happiness this way. This is insanity and it is time for change.

Let go of ego and gain everything. You can enjoy life now, in the present moment, if you align with the awareness that you are consciousness, you are love, here, now. Here we are, right? Honor the present moment—where all the universe exists and always has—by being honest, open, and accepting. Without ego, it is easy to live here now and eternally.

Unless you create, you are unfulfilled. (A Course in Miracles)

“The ego’s whole thought system blocks extension, and thus blocks your only function. It therefore blocks your joy, so that you perceive yourself as unfulfilled.”

Unfulfilled, now you are incorrectly instructed by the world that getting will fulfill you. You believe that happiness can be found in consumption. Buy. Have. Take.

This thought system requires a great deal of sacrifice: long hours at work or worse—borrow, beg or steal. Now you no longer have the time, energy, or inspiration to create. The sacrifices you have been told will save you become the cause of deep, persistent unfulfillment which is only relieved temporarily by meaningless distractions.

From the ego, we cannot create. Instead, we merely make from a place that is ambitious but uninspired, manipulative, calculative, and incapable of delivering much value.

Everything of worth flows from the dimension of spirit. In spirit, you can easily create and extend truth, beauty and love. A total escape from ego is required to reach your creative potential, to fulfill your life purpose, and to experience lasting peace and happiness.

Go more deeply into the now by going more deeply into the inner-body. (Eckhart Tolle)

Today’s lesson may seem unexciting to the mind, but to your state of being it is everything. To remain conscious of the inner body is to remain spiritually rooted. Like a strong tree with deep roots, “no matter what happens on the outside, nothing can shake you anymore.” To use another common metaphor; you remain at the center of the wheel. The spokes go around and around, but right at the center you are still.

With attention on the inner body, your consciousness no longer gets lost to the drama of the mind and to the chaos of the external world. You remain in peace, calm, content. You feel good even if waiting in line, or sitting in traffic, or dealing with a challenging situation.

Eckhart Tolle explains, “Do not give all your attention away to the mind or to the outer world.” If you can keep some attention on the inner body, you will experience “permanent connectedness with being.”

Furthermore, “There is infinitely more intelligence in being than in the mind.” The body is where you access the realm of inspiration and intuition. Go within to experience the energy of love. Here, you are guided by a higher intelligence. Here, you are fully-present and anchored in the now—in being.

Negative emotions only arise when your attention leaves the inner body. All negative emotions are rooted in fear. Perhaps this fear, this agony and discontent, is your soul screaming out for attention—calling you away from the thought-dominated state and back to inner body awareness. Go within—to where you can enjoy life right now and always.

Men have learned to so easily back away from our truths



Men have been convinced to hide our truths about our wants, needs, and desires. We withhold honesty all the time because we are told that our truths are somehow wrong.

This makes it impossible for us to enjoy life. Rather than openly being who we are, we choose to suppress it. When this fails, we lie, we cheat, we do whatever it takes to be who we truly are and to fulfill our real needs in secret.

The problem is that secrets and lies are always eventually exposed. Dishonesty is the cause of crisis, because crisis is exactly what happens when the truth exposes a lie.
There is nothing wrong with us to begin with and nothing we need to hide. Every person has a right to be who he or she is. If you feel this message, check out my eBook called The Switch.

Transformation is through the body, not away from it. (Eckhart Tolle)

To place focus on the energy field within your body is to practice present moment awareness. Take a moment to feel the subtle energies and emotions deep within your body. Close your eyes and just feel it.

Perhaps after some time, you may become overwhelmed by the power of the energy you feel. With complete focus on the way your inner body feels, you were probably not thinking about the past or future. You were here, now.

The body is our learning device. Through it, we sense the world around us, we feel love, experience pleasure, we sense our state of health, our positive and negative emotions, and our energy levels. Our inner body is probably our greatest spiritual teacher.

Today, make peace with the body. Go into it. Become aware of it. Enjoy it. Have faith in what it is telling you. Keep moving toward an experience of inner peace, of perfect energy, and of perfect love.

By following your intuition and acting according to your inspiration, you will naturally align with truth—which is experienced as a state of continually feeling good and enjoying life all the time.


“The fact is that no one has ever become enlightened through denying or fighting the body, or through an out-of-the-body experience.”
