How to Let Go of Judgment – How do we make this shift of mind from following the ego and aligning with all its judgments to having a clear Christ-like mind? The Holy Spirit’s practical, moment to moment guidance is the answer. Each time we follow the Spirit’s specific directions, it helps to wash away our separate sense of self, and our lives begin to take on an ease and a flow. You start to feel empowered and more and more like you are not in the world. Other themes in this talk include: Awakening and taking responsibility for our state of mind.
All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
Enjoy this rich talk that will help you gain an understanding of where our problems really lie: in the mind and nowhere else. All of our guilt, fear, and rage is all in the mind not out in the world. Accepting this is not only a time saver but your ticket to true freedom and peace of mind. Other topics include inspiring accounts of the lives of mystics such as Ghandi, William Whitson, and Living Miracles’ minister Frances Xu.

Everything is falling apart. This world of images that you see is a projection of attack thoughts; an attempt to dilute the guilt you feel from the belief that you’ve attacked God during the separation. Forgiveness is the great unifier and it is essential that you allow the darkness to come up for forgiveness and receive the correction. The Holy Spirit uses contrast experiences to bring this unconscious darkness into awareness. At the core of this healing is the purifying of desire—you have to want to see. This is part of the dismantling process, which is horrific to the ego, but the Holy Spirit rejoices at this as it means that you are literally coming closer and closer to the light of truth!
Let your sleeping mind be reminded of the very important awareness that you are complete and healed and whole, and let nothing convince you otherwise. If you reacting to a situation in the world by feeling upset, you are reacting to something that is already over and gone. Only false interpretation is upsetting, and you have the power to accept the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world instead.
