Offering ongoing support for spiritual awakening and living in the moment

Inspiration for Today

“When you are able to step out of the ego’s point of view, you can feel the love, wonderment, awe, and gratitude of your soul for this life. This is why it is so important to learn to move beyond the false self—because your life can be experienced as a blessing, as a precious gift. It is possible even in this moment—right now—to feel this, simply by stopping to notice the love, joy, awe, and gratitude that are here right now. Are you willing to take a moment to do that? What might prevent you from doing that? Isn’t it only a thought that would prevent this? Notice that thought, if it is there, and then turn away from it and turn your attention to the experience of this sweet moment. Stay with this experience long enough to feel the subtle happiness of your true self. Can you feel it, even just a little? The more you allow yourself to feel this, the more it becomes your reality.”

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.”
Special Price for The Jesus Trilogy

Video and Notes About the Heart and Nondual Teachings

Watch a 90-minute interview of Gina speaking about the role of the heart in nondual teachings with Grace Bubeck, living-from-love.com (90 min.)

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MIND AND HEART IN AWAKENING

Here are some notes I made before the interview with Grace Bubeck regarding the role of the heart in nondual spiritual teachings:

One of the problems with talking about the heart is that we need to define what we mean by heart. It is so often thought to be feelings, or emotions. But “follow your heart” doesn’t mean follow your feelings, such as your anger, jealousy, hatred, guilt, or sadness. As everyone intuitively knows, following your heart means following the feelings that come from your deepest Self: feelings of joy, love, peace. And yet, we talk about a broken heart. However, the broken heart is not the spiritual heart but refers to the human heart and human feelings, for the spiritual heart is not affected by the events in life.

Opening the heart is opening the spiritual heart. When the spiritual heart opens, you feel joyful, relaxed, at peace, loving, content, at one with life. This happens to everyone, sometimes many times a day or, for some, only occasionally. After awakening, when that awakening includes the heart, then the heart is open much of the time. Instead of being an occasional experience, it is more of one’s ongoing experience. In short, when you awaken, your heart opens; and when your heart opens, you awaken (at least momentarily). Awakeness and the heart are the same thing. Devotional practices are a means of opening the heart before awakening and getting to know what that experience is like. After awakening, devotional practices are a natural celebration of an already open heart.
