This is Esther Hicks as Abraham in the original Secret movie (before they were edited out) with a little bit of Michael Beckwith towards the end — on the stream of well being that sustains us.  Just beautiful!

Got Snow?

img_0300-3

That’s our official reading for how much is on the ground as of this morning out here in unincorporated Renton, Washington where the snow plows have gone missing! Maybe we could borrow one from Seattle’s “fleet” of 27. :)

We and all the animals are snuggled indoors. It’s a White Christmas for sure and perhaps the only one I will ever see again in the Seattle area. This December will surely go down as an unforgettable one. Pacific Northwest readers of my blog – I know you understand and the rest of you probably wonder what the big deal is about. :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Love, Bethie

Bob.

This is Bob formerly known as Allie. The girl cat that we discovered is a boy cat!
Isn’t he handsome? And it’s official, Bob is as white as snow. Yes, the Seattle
area has had enough snow to determine that. I won’t bemoan our fate though,
I know some of you have much more snow. Nevermind that I’ve been snow
bound for a week straight – nope I’m not going to whine. Much. :))
Love, Bethie

I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the
very thing I look at, and experience the kind of consciousness it has;
I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of
entering other focal points of consciousness, love; you may give it
any name you like. Love says “I am everything”. Wisdom says “I am
nothing”. Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time
and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I
express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.

I cannot lose
anything that
belongs to me by
Divine Right.
I am under
grace and not
under law.

I’ve always believed that Source/God/Universe is not neutral. My background as a former nurse really has provided proof positive of that for this ‘show me’ girl. The body is so lovingly aligned with balance or what is known as homeostasis. There is nothing neutral about that and so it seems to me that everything in nature is orchestrated to seek balance. What else causes that except a loving, benevolent Universe that has our back. Frankly I’m not sure how I reconcile that with the Law of Attraction which Abraham states is neutral. For one, the so called neutral LOA does not account for the existence of absolute divine grace. So it would seem that there are other factors that surpass neutral laws.

I was so excited to actually run across a quote from one of Seth’s deleted sessions stating that God is not neutral. I include it below. Note that Ruburt is the name and male gender that Seth assigned Jane Roberts. Love, Bethie

Seth: “To begin with, a few comments about some thoughts of Ruburt’s.

He is quite correct: the universe is not neutral.

In the terms in which you understand the word, there is a God.

Obviously I am not speaking of a personification of a Superperson.

For that matter, in the terms of your language, and intellectual
concepts, you will probably have to take it for granted that you
cannot understand the nature of such a God.

You will know God’s actions, however, through the manifestations of
the universe.

That God is not simply neutral energy, for example.

The universe is supportive.

There is a force, if you prefer, that actively loves each individual,
each consciousness, and actively works to help that consciousness
attain the fulfillment inherent in its nature.

Despite all misinterpretations, therefore, the universe is caring, and
so is nature.

The impetus toward creativity is a loving one, and the natural
processes in both body and mind as lovingly directed.

The body even lovingly seeks to follow its own nature, and is lovingly
directed to do so…

…I realize you are not living in an ideal world, but we are giving
that world ideas that can vastly increase peoples’ understanding.”

Deleted session, August 20, 1977

When you are present in this moment,
you break the continuity of your story, of past and future.

Then true intelligence arises, and also LOVE.

The only way that LOVE can come into your life is not through form,
but through the inner spaciousness that is presence.

LOVE has no form. The world can only change from within.

Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Amidst the World
