A New Earth

  1. 1. Wake Up World… a new earth is waiting! your participation is required… enjoy each moment! Dlane
  2. 2. You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge. P13     Life isn’t as serious as my mind makes it out to be. P33
  3. 3. The unconscious compulsion to enhance one’s identity through association with an object is built into the very structure of the egoic mind. P35 Whatever the ego seeks and gets attached to are substitutes for the Being that it cannot feel. P40
  4. 4. Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. P41 The ego isn’t wrong, it’s just unconscious. P42 Making yourself right and others wrong is one of the principal egoic mind patterns. P44
  5. 5. Nonreaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also dissolving the collective human ego. P62 Your greatest protection from deeply unconscious people is being conscious. P63 All that is required to become free of the ego is to be aware of it, since awareness and ego are incompatible. P78 Awareness is the power that is concealed within the present moment. P78
  6. 6. Spiritual realization is to see clearly that what I perceive, experience, think, or feel is ultimately not who I am, that I cannot find myself in all those things that continuously pass away. P78 The recognition of the false is already the rising of the real. P81 The ego doesn’t know that the source of all energy is within you, so it seeks it outside. P85
  7. 7. Whenever you feel superior or inferior to anyone, that’s the ego in you. P86
  8. 8. Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself. P90 When you let go of the belief that you should or need to know who you are, suddenly the confusion is gone. P90
  9. 9. The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you’re thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral which always is as it is. P96 Don’t seek happiness. Happiness is very elusive, but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing what is, rather than making up stories about it. Unhappiness covers up your natural state of well being and inner peace, the source of true happiness. P96
  10. 10. Awareness is the greatest agent for change. P99 (awareness = light) If there is awareness in you, you no longer need to believe in every thought you think. It’s an old thought, no more. Awareness means Presence, and only Presence can dissolve the unconscious past in you. P100
  11. 11. Mastery of life is not a question of control, but of finding a balance between human and Being. P104 Human is form. Being is formless. P105 Only beyond form, in Being, are you equal, and only when you find the formless dimension in yourself can there be true love in that relationship. P105
  12. 12. To love is to recognize yourself in another. P105 The longing for love that is in every child is the longing to be recognized, not on the level of form, but on the level of Being. P105 Love makes the world less worldly, less dense, more transparent to the divine dimension, the light of consciousness itself. P106
  13. 13. … those who do not attempt to appear more than they are but are simply themselves, stand out as remarkable and are the only ones who truly make a difference in this world. P108 Whatever they do becomes empowered because it is in alignment with the purpose of the whole. P108
  14. 14. You will be free to let go of your unhappiness the moment you recognize it as unintelligent. P112 You will be free to let go of your unhappiness the moment you recognize it as unintelligent. P112 Peace, after all, is the end of the ego. P115 And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. P109
  15. 15. The voice in the head has a life of its own. Most people are at the mercy of that voice; they are possessed by thought, by the mind. And since the mind is conditioned by the past, you are then forced to reenact the past again and again. P129 There is a generic term for all negative emotions: unhappiness. P136 It is only when memories, that is to say, thoughts about the past, take you over completely that they turn into a burden, turn problematic, and become part of your sense of self. Your personality, which is conditioned by the past, then becomes your prison. P140
  16. 16. We can learn not to keep situations or events alive in our minds, but to return our attention continuously to the pristine, timeless present moment…. Our very Presence then becomes our identity, rather than our thoughts and emotions. P141 This energy field of old but still very-much-alive emotion that lives in almost every human being is the pain-body. P142 It’s raw emotion looking for more emotion. The other person’s pain-body wants to awaken yours (push buttons) so that both pain-bodies can mutually energize each other. P148 Even if blame seems more than justified, as long as you blame others, you keep feeding the pain-body with your thoughts and remain trapped in your ego. P160
  17. 17. When it is recognized, it can no longer pretend to be you and live and renew itself through you. It is your conscious Presence that breaks the identification with the pain-body. P161 Emotion in itself is not unhappiness. Only emotion plus an unhappy story is unhappiness. P166 Unhappiness is created whenever you are out of alignment with the present moment, when the Now is denied in one way or another. P172 (with Pain-body and ego) You look at the present through the eyes of the emotional past within you. P173 This knowing (recognizing the pain-body) is all that is needed to break your identification with it. P183
  18. 18. Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance. P190 Whatever you think people are withholding from you – give it to them. Then, soon after you start giving, you will start receiving. You cannot receive what you don’t give. Outflow determines inflow. P191 Most people define themselves through the content of their lives (perception, experience, do, think, feel). Content absorbs most people’s attention entirely and it is what they identify with. Which takes up the inner space of consciousness. P193 To be in alignment with what is means to be in a relationship of inner nonresistance with what happens. …. When the basis for your actions is in inner alignment with the present moment, your actions become empowered by the intelligence of Life itself. P199 Only if you resist what happens are you at the mercy of what happens, and the world will determine your happiness or unhappiness. P200
  19. 19. The decision to make the present moment into your friend is the end of the ego. P201 The stronger the ego, the more time takes over your life. Almost every thought you think is then concerned with the past or future, and your sense of self depends on the past for your identity and on the future for its fulfillment. P202 Nonresistance (surrender) is the key to the greatest power in the universe. P208 The joy of Being (not doing), which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form, possession, achievement, person, or event – through anything that happens. That joy cannot come to you – ever. It emanates from the formless dimension within you, from consciousness itself and thus is one with who you are. P214
  20. 20. If you are content with being nobody in particular, content not to stand out, you align yourself with the power of the universe. What looks like weakness to the ego is in fact the only true strength. P216 Presence is a state of inner spaciousness. … You are still, alert, open to what is. …When instead of reacting against a situation, you merge with it, the solution arises out of the situation itself. P238 Being aware of your breathing takes attention away from thinking and creates space (God within). P244 Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment – the key to all inner transformation. P246 Nonresistance, nonjudgment, and nonattachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living. P225
  21. 21. When I no longer confuse who I am with a temporary form of “me,” then the dimension of the limitless and the eternal – God – can express itself through “me” and guide “me.” P251 Thought is form. To be still is to be conscious without thought. …. When you are still, you are who you are beyond your temporal existence: consciousness – unconditioned, formless, eternal. P256 Inner purpose concerns Being and is primary. Outer purpose concerns doing and is secondary. …. Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. P258 Awakening is a shift in consciousness in which thinking and awareness is separate. P259 …. Presence: consciousness without thought.
  22. 22. You can invite Presence into your life, that is to say, make space. … You can either try to go on as if nothing has happened, or you can see its significance and recognize the arising of awareness as the most important thing that can happen to you. Opening yourself to the emerging consciousness and bringing its light into this world then becomes the primary purpose in your life. Einstein said consciousness is the mind of God. P261
  23. 23. The present moment is always small in the sense that it is always simple, but concealed within it lies the greatest power. P267 Through the present moment, you have access to the power of life itself, that which has traditionally been called “God.” P267 Jesus likes to draw our attention to nature because He sees a power at work in it that humans have lost touch with. It is the creative power of the universe. Jesus goes on to say that if God clothes simple flowers in such beauty, how much more will God clothe you. … when humans become aligned with the intelligence that underlies it, they will express the same impulse on a higher, more wondrous level. P268 Fulfilling your primary purpose is laying the foundation for a new reality, a new earth. Once that foundation is there, your external purpose becomes charged with spiritual power because your aims and intentions will be one with the evolutionary impulse of the universe. P265
  24. 24. As you become present and thereby total in what you do, your actions become charged with spiritual power. At first there may be no noticeable change in what you do – only the how changes. Your primary purpose is now to enable consciousness to flow into whatever you do. …. The field of awareness that arises between you becomes the primary purpose for the interaction. …. The human Being becomes more important than the things of this world. P269 The unconscious assumption behind all such action is that success is a future event, and that the end justifies the means. But the end and the means are one. And if the means didn’t contribute to human happiness, neither will the end. P271 What the future holds for you depends on your state of consciousness now. … When doing becomes infused with the timeless quality of Being, that is success. P272
  25. 25. But when we perceive without interpreting or mental labeling, which means without adding thought to our perceptions, we can actually still sense the deeper connectedness underneath our perception of seemingly separate things. P276 We become conscious participants in the creation of form. It is not we who create, but universal intelligence that creates through us. P289 The stronger the ego, the stronger the sense of separateness between people. P290 Awakened doing is the alignment of your outer purpose – what you do – with your inner purpose – awakening and staying awake. …. Not what you do, but how you do what you do determines whether you are fulfilling your destiny. And how you do what you do is determined by your state of consciousness. …. In any situation and in whatever you do, your state of consciousness is the primary factor; the situation and what you do is secondary. P294
  26. 26. On the new earth, enjoyment will replace wanting as the motivating power behind people’s actions. …. Joy is the dynamic aspect of Being. Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you. … there is the belief that joy is something that can be derived from something else such as an activity or thing. You then look to the world to bring your joy, happiness. But it cannot do that. This is why so many people live in constant frustration. The world is not giving them what they think they need. P298 Enthusiasm means there is deep enjoyment in what you do plus the added element of a goal or a vision that you work toward. When you add a goal to the enjoyment of what you do, the energy-field or vibrational frequency changes. … You will feel like an arrow that is moving toward the target – and enjoying the journey. P301
