EXCERPTS FROM ACCEPTANCE: YOUR POWER TO BE FREE

THE SOUL: We have fallen asleep and it is time to awaken to God's grace in us.

THE FEAR OF DEATH: If you don't know how to enjoy life now, you won't be very good at it later, either. It takes practice!

HOPE: Hope is an exercise in accepting and knowing God's presence.

INDIVIDUALITY: Know this, accept this: You are an individual. When you are an individual and you act as yourself, you may not be popular for a time. Because you are different, others may not always understand your uniqueness, but this difference is the key to your greatness.

PATIENCE: Patience is something everyone has, until it comes time to wait.

PRAYER: Prayer is the recognition that we are not our own power.

WORDS: When the tide seems to be the strongest against you, it may be the most perfect opportunity to prove the power that aids you. It is possibly your perfect opportunity to find out where your greatest powers lie. God within you will always answer.

CHANGE: When you can accept that change is best and also for your highest good, then you can begin to live more effectively, and calmly. Then you will be able to concentrate on things that really matter, instead of on the transitory thoughts that rumble through your mind.

ENVIRONMENT: The basic problem with Earth is that we have been seduced into falling out of love.

FORGIVENESS: Forgiveness frees a person from mental bondage. When we are not forgiving in our hearts, we too easily become mind-slaves to persons and circumstances in our lives.

THE GRAND ILLUSION: There are many illusions that will pop up as trials in life... but when we have learned to recognize them in their true light and accept them as stepping stones to a better self, they lose their power to hold us back.

TRIALS OF LIFE: Life is a series of lessons, or as some people would say, a series of trails. I view them as resistance placed in the way to prove the soul's worth.

THE DESERT: Our minds and bodies are out of control because we are still trying to approach life from the outside in. The outer can never be satisfied nor controlled. In the outer world more is never enough.

UNDERSTANDING: Understand that every obstacle, every setback you have ever experienced in the past has been a perfect opportunity for you to rise above yourself in your thinking.
