Inspiration for Today

“There isn’t anything wrong with the ego’s desires. It is natural to have an ego and to have such desires. There is also nothing wrong with pursuing these desires. Doing so provides experiences and the many lessons that come with having those experiences, and ultimately the truth about egoic desires is discovered. It just would be a mistake to assume that getting what the ego wants is the purpose of your life or of life in general. That is much too shortsighted a view and overlooks a much grander purpose.”

Noticing as a Spiritual Practice

Noticing is a profound spiritual practice in itself because it gets us in touch with what is noticing and experiencing life, with Consciousness, our true self. Consciousness notices; it is what witnesses and experiences life. It is who we are. Whenever we do what our being naturally does, we align with it. For instance, if we say something compassionate to ourselves or to someone else, we align with our true nature because our true nature is compassionate. Or if we accept ourselves or someone else, we align with our true nature because our true nature is accepting. Or if we notice our experience and fully experience it, we align with our true nature because our true nature is what is aware and experiencing life.
 
Buddhists call this practice of noticing, mindfulness. Being mindful means being aware of our present moment experience, including our thoughts, feelings, intuitions, internal experiences, bodily sensations, sounds, sights, and other sensory input. In any moment, a lot is going on, and it’s all in flux. So there’s always plenty to notice in our present moment experience. The present moment is alive with activity and experience.
 
What notices and discerns is the true self. The true self is the consciousness that makes it possible to experience life. This Consciousness is a great mystery because it can only be described by how it is experienced, since it isn’t a thing apart from everything else. The wisdom traditions say that this Consciousness is all-pervading and behind and within all creation, although it isn’t important that you believe that.
 

How Do You Know It's Jesus?

Here is a question I get asked a lot in regard to my latest book, The Jesus Trilogy: “How do you know you were receiving dictation directly from Jesus?”
 
The short answer is that I don’t know for sure. No one can ever really know who is communicating with them from other dimensions. The being who dictated The Jesus Trilogy to me identified himself as Jesus, but since con men exist even on nonphysical planes, someone’s word is not always trustworthy. However, the sincerity and devotion to Truth of the one receiving the communication does matter: Like attracts like. An egoic nature will attract manipulative entities. When the egoic nature is purified, higher beings begin to transmit more and more through us, whether we are aware of that or not. Furthermore, someone who is developed spiritually “feels” and may even see the energy of the being s/he is communicating with and, with practice, can discern the level of that entity from such subtle experiences.
 
Another short answer I like to give is: “The proof is in the pudding,” meaning that the truth of a communication can be determined by observing its effects: Does it help you live a more loving, peaceful, and compassionate life, all values that Jesus and religions in general espouse? Or to put it as Jesus once said: “By their fruits you will know them.”
 

Just Released: The Jesus Trilogy

the jesus trilogyJust released: The Jesus Trilogy. The three small books by Jesus that have been dictated to Gina over the last year are available now in one volume called The Jesus Trilogy. In this trilogy are three jewels, each shining in its own way and illuminating the same truth: You are not only human but divine, and you are meant to flourish and love one another. In words that are for today, Jesus speaks intimately and directly to the reader of the secrets to peace, love, and happiness. He explains the deepest of all mysteries: who you are and how you can live as he taught long ago. The three books in The Jesus Trilogy include Choice and Will, Love and Surrender, and Beliefs, Emotions, and the Creation of Reality.
 
Choice and Will explores the complex, mysterious, and important question of who or what chooses. The question is important because our choices shape our reality and determine our experience of it.
 
Love and Surrender explains the role that surrender plays in releasing us from bondage to our conditioning. Surrender is the “miracle” that occurs when we are finally able to let go and let things be as they are.
 
Beliefs, Emotions, and the Creation of Reality explores the exciting arena of creation. It explains how beliefs determine our internal reality and, consequently, our external reality and how to move beyond limiting beliefs.
 
From the Introduction to The Jesus Trilogy: “Choice and will are what make it possible to move out of the negative and limiting beliefs of the false self, which prevent or curtail the possibility of living a fuller, happier, and more loving life. Love and surrender are what are necessary to be in the Heart—in one’s divine Essence—and to live from there rather than from a more contracted ego-bound state of consciousness. Surrender is the mysterious thing that happens when one lets go of, or gives up, the perspective and beliefs of the false self for the true self. It is the miracle I have spoken of in other works of mine.”
