The End of Fear. #GMweekends

You forget Love and experience fear on account of the body.  The body IS fear.  Fear is having a body-- thinking about it, shielding it, having a vested interest in its survival. Remembering Love, you don't ignore the body, you just feel and know Love where the body is seen, where it is experienced.  You experience the body as Love.  You know only Love is there and that ends your belief in the body (as separate from God), and its fear, and its world.   That’s the real meaning of ‘the end of the world.’ Only God is, and for now, it is appearing as that body reading this message. In today's episode, in response to a listener's question, I summarize some of my favorite methods for "replacing fear with Love". Also check out this episode (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/go-o-d-mornings-with-curlynikki/id1570144628  ) for another, more tactile practice to instantaneously become aware of Love, even while fear is visiting. I Love you and I'm with you! Nik ▶▶ Support the show! https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings Today's Quotes: "Fear comes when there is a second." -Brihadaranyaka Upanishad "It's not happiness and peace that comes and goes. It's sickness, suffering and confusion that comes and goes. Many people mistakenly think peace and happiness comes and goes. They have a brief experience of peace or joy and then they think' they lost it'.  Happiness and peace is your permanent nature. It never changes. It does not fade or 'go away'.  What 'goes away' is your attention on your true nature and when you do that, other things arise, like sickness, doubt, worry, fear, suffering, anger, overwhelm.  -Lisa Natoli via IG @lisanatoli Meditations inspired by A Course in Miracles

Quiet Mind = Fulfilled Desire #GMweekends

Listen for the place inside that feels like, ‘I have’, instead of ‘I want’, by: Hearing the thought/desire  Immediately shifting to feeling Silent-Love View every desire today as an alarm reminding you to BE Love, again.  Reminding you to RELAX, again.  To lower your shoulders, again. To smile, again.  In this way, each desire is immediately dissolved in Love— the formless essence of both the thought and material form.  Love is the formless essence of everything, including you, and when you’re aware as That, you lack nothing. You are already whole and when you’re conscious of It, you project a wholly and holy abundant world. As desire disappears, fulfillment appears. Be still in This. Trust. Smile. I Love you!

Consciousness is mind at rest." -Rupert Spira "When the mind becomes still, the world begins to disappear (becomes unreal)." -Robert Adams "You're looking for beauty outside of yourself. You have to learn that you are the beauty. You are the joy. You are the flowers that you enjoy so much. You are the trees and the ocean and the sky and the mountains. It's all coming from you.  If you really realize that you are that, would you run around seeking things? Everything that you want is within you. You are that. Even relationships. You look for relationship with someone so they can make you happy, so you can enjoy their company, so you can love them, so you can be with them. But I can assure you that within yourself is a greater love, a greater joy, a greater peace than you can ever find anywhere else. True. You've got it all. There is nothing, no thing that you need from the outside. And nothing can ever happen to you, because there is no one to make it happen, except yourself." -Robert Adams in a talk June 1991 "The soul is perfect; what can you improve? You have everything; what is there to gratify? Aum will seek out the man of contemplation; Reveal to him the wonder of great secrets." –The Book of Ashes, Dadaji “If you want to see God, kill desires. ... When you have a desire for something, don't act on it and it will go away. If you desire to drink this cup of tea, don't, and the desire for it will go away.” -Maharajji

There's No Such Thing As Peace of Mind #GMweekends

There’s no such thing as peace of mind. But there is a Peace beyond the mind. A Peace that temporarily appears as the mind, while simultaneously, eternally remaining as Itself. A Peace that inner chanting brings attention to. A Peace that doesn't have to be practiced. A Peace that doesn't need a name. A Peace that appears as the best version of you. A Peace that appears as all things. Pause. Smile. Radiate Peace. A lot can happen in a month. Watch.

Becoming a GoOD Receiver #GMweekends

Pray for peace, you are tuning you radio to the peace station. Pray for beauty, you tune your radio to the beauty station. More things are wrought by prayer than the world dreams of: We don" know the power of prayers. Don't we say, "You want it, you got it!" It is literally true; if you really want it sincerely, you get it.  Real want, sincere want, honest want is prayer.

Negative Thoughts: How to Stop Them #GMweekends

A meditation to help you IMMEDIATELY surrender negative thoughts. It's useful not just during 'formal' meditation, but in every moment you find yourself fearful or worried.   You shift from being aware of being 'you', to being aware AS the Christ Light that you truly are.  You shift out of your mind, and into the mind that was in Christ.  Into the no-mind of the Buddha.  How does that mind sound?  Is it thinking about your troubles, your past, your future? Or is It silent... steady?  How does It feel?    Stay (t)here.    I Love you, Nik [email protected] Support the show! ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings _________________________________ Today's Quotes: "Constantly have this mind among yourselves which was in Christ Jesus." -Philippians 2:5-11 "Just as a lamp in a windless place does not flicker, so the disciplined mind of a yogi remains steady in meditation on the Self." -Bhagavad Gita "People come to me to ask for blessings, they don't understand the knowledge that one is not the body, but the consciousness within, is the blessing." -Nisargadatta Maharaj "Having realized that I am with, and yet beyond the world, I became free from all desire and fear. I did not reason out that I should be free, I found myself free, unexpectedly, without the least effort.  Spontaneity became a way of life, the real became natural and the natural became real. And above all, infinite affection, love, dark and quiet, radiating in all directions, embracing all, making all interesting and beautiful, significant and auspicious." -Nisargadatta Maharaj Support the show

My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God #GMweekend

Assume, just for today, that the sound of your heart beating is the presence of God with you. That every time you stop,  listen, and feel for the heart beating, you know that God is (t)here. You know that God is in the silence of the listening. You know that God is beating that heart. You know that God is that heart. You know that God is both being ‘you’, and beyond ‘you’. And because you know This, because you feel This, your new chapter begins. I Love you and I'm with you! Nik GoOD Mornings merch: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings Today's Quotes: My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God "Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love.  It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength.  I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving Arms. Each heartbeat calls His Name, and every one is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him. Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. Father, my heart is beating in the Peace the Heart of Love created.  It is there and only there that I can be at home.'  - Lesson 267 "In proportion as you are listening (to Silence), you are consciously aware of the presence of God, the power. the reality, the joy, the Spirit, the life, and the wisdom of God... Recognizing your Self as Consciousness, and adopting the listening ear, the attitude of consciousness, you become the child of God that is joint-heir to all the heavenly riches." -Joel Goldsmith (Consciousness is What I Am)

‘Home’ and ‘You’ Are the Same Thing #GMweekends

Today's Practice: Every time you find that place inside that is forever still, you are Home. You are in Heaven.  You can turn any moment into heaven by, 'going into your heart cave' as Ram Dass would say.  Go into your heart cave before you go into your office tomorrow.  Don't leave your heart cave.  Realize you ARE the heart cave, itself. I Love you and I'm with you,  Nik [email protected]    “Rumi says, ‘The one who brought me here must take me home.’ Who is the one who brought you here? That Grace is calling you home.

The Only Realization Needed: 'Thank you, Father, I Already Am.' #GMweekend

Today, every time you notice a thought about something desired, something missing... something needed, inwardly repeat- 'thank you Father, I already Am.' And then feel the shoulders relax, the face smile, the whole being relax, and melt. This 'pulls the chair out from beneath the mind' and you fall into Loving Remembrance, Joyful Realization.  You already, always have been That.  Keep feeling It, and you'll see It.   I Love you, Nik [email protected] Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings "The only realization needed: 'thank you, Father, I already Am." -Joel Goldsmith "Pulling out the chair Beneath the mind And watching you fall upon God-- "What else is there for Hafiz to do That is any fun in this world. " -Hafiz translated by Daniel Ladinsky "The object of our love is Love Itself." -Ram Dass "The greatest work there is for you to do, My Beloved, is to do nothing. Only let the Glory of God shine through the human vessel. Learn to let the spirit flow through all you do and say. Why need you be tense, or eager, or anxious as to how you can serve? Why should you ever watch for opportunity to serve Me? If you will relax, at all times, if you will dwell in the Center of your being, and rest in the consciousness of the Divine Presence you shall make no false moves nor mistakes. How sweet should be this thought to you, that you need take no active part aside from the still knowing that your Father has control over all situations and where ever you are at this moment, and where you shall go and what you shall do through the day is all controlled by the Father under the law of Divine love. So rest, relax, be very still, that you may have the surety of this guidance through all the hours of the day before you." -Eva Bell Werber. Voice of the Master

This Feeling is More Real Than the Scene at Hand #GMweekends

Pretend you're standing in front of a window with a clear view out at a mountainous  forest.  It's a gorgeous day. The colors are vibrant and crisp.  Now, shift your attention to your reflection in the window.  The view is still there, but now it's in the background, and your reflection is in the foreground. Even if there was a war outside your window, it would be no more difficult to become aware of your reflection... of your innate Peace, that's also present.  No matter what's on view (and it is constantly changing!), don't lose sight of your Self. Don't forget Love.  Don't make the view and its alternating,  alluring beautiful and terrifying images more important than your awareness of Love.  Truly, only Love is here.  And you are That.  Feel It.  Be It.  I Love you, Nik [email protected] Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings Today's Quote: "At every moment, we are free to allow experience to veil our innate Peace or to remain transparent to it.

You Have to Feel the Invisible to Do the Impossible #GMweekends

Today's Quotes: "You have to see the invisible in order to do the impossible." - Dr. Michael Beckwith "The universe is saying: Allow me to flow through you unrestricted and you will see the greatest magic you have ever seen." - Klaus Joehle "Praying for a change in your life, well maybe it's gon' come tonight." - Kanye West Today's Practice: In your journal write, "The moment I feel Love, I Am ___________." The 'blank' is your desired reality.  Trust that when you are consciously feeling Love, you are Love, and that Love will take the form of that desired reality or something even more in alignment than you can presently imagine.   Don't be attached to outcomes, just trust that It will provide. It always has and It always will, and now, the process is conscious. Keep relaxing into Love, today. Keep breathing into Love, today.  Allowing It to flow unrestricted, absolutely nothing is impossible, and with Love, "everything is achieved." - Neem Karoli Baba Support the show!: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings

What I Want Also Wants Me #GMweekends

Know that Love is here.  Know that everything is changing.  Know that It, what's meant for you, is happening! And there's nothing you or anyone can do to stop It. It's all flowing from you, and that flow sounds like silence and feels like relaxation, like Love.  Step into your destiny by resting in and AS this Love. “When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.” - Shams-i Tabrizi “There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in fullness;....and, to know, rather consists in opening out a way where the imprisoned splendor may escape, then in effecting entry for a light supposed to be without.” -Robert Browning

Relaxation is who you are.” -Chinese Proverb  “St. Teresa of Avila wrote: 'All difficulties in prayer can be traced to one cause: praying as if God were absent.' This is the conviction that we bring with us from early childhood and apply to everyday life and to our lives in general. It gets stronger as we grow up, unless we are touched by the Gospel and begin the spiritual journey. This journey is a process of dismantling the monumental illusion that God is distant or absent.” -Thomas Keating, Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit "You are so near that I cannot see You.  Like a fool I keep looking around."  -Rumi

Take a Vacation from Yourself #GMweekends

Take a vacation from yourself by being your Self.  Bask in the sun of the Self and immediately know everything AS that One.  As Love.  You're not trying to practice or trying to remember this, you immediately feel and know Love here, there, and everywhere.   When you scroll IG, you know that where the phone, the hand, the feed, and the profiles appear to be, only Love is.  Where the world is, including the body you call 'you' appears to be, know only Love is (t)here.  Here, everything is holy.  Everything is sacred.  Every day is a miracle. Every day is vacation.  Every day is Saturday.  This is an immediate recognition.  An instant retreat.  Stay here.

How To Give It To God and Let It Go #GMfaves

What's got you worried today? Speak it into the Silence. That's how you surrender it. That's how you give it to God-- you give it to the Silence. And then you just keep hearing the Silence, you keep listening to the Silence, the same way you were listening to the words of your worry, you listen to the Beauty of the Silence, you become the Beautiful Silence.

Bow down to the water with which you will take a shower. During these occasions of bowing down, you will have a pure resolve to see the same Consciousness in everything whether with form or without. While doing so, you are in fact remembering God." -Amma "Dead promises must resurrect. The dry bones must come to life. He's breathing over the dead area. One breath. One touch.

No Doubt #GMfaves

The way you have no doubt that you're alive? You have to have THAT kind of faith that God is providing for you. Can you have no doubt about that? No doubt that you're being guided? No doubt you're being sheltered, protected? When you get quiet, when you 'be still and know' that you're aware,  that you're alive, you're simultaneously acknowledging  the presence of God. The aliveness and the  presence of God are One. The "I Am" and the presence of God are One. Your presence is His. In that moment, just as you don't doubt that you're alive, you also don't doubt that you're being carried. I Love you and I'm with you, Nik ******God is afoot!

The Force is With You #GMfaves

You don't have to force your way into this Silence. You don't have to force your way into this Love. You don't have to force a manifestation. R E L A X, into the Force. That tension you were feeling was the false force, this Stillness that you've softened into, this Love, is THE Force. It's God. And God isn't a He, She, or It.

You Must Not Break Down So Easily #GMfaves

In moments when you feel pressed, close your eyes, and let the Word(s), 'I can of my own self do nothing' direct you to the Nothing inside. Look at It. Hear It. Feel It. The No Thing that does Everything. Right in that Place that you're attending to now, that you're actually being now, is where you must come back to often during the day. You must retreat here for at least 1-2 minutes every hour. This is how you keep from breaking down. This is how you keep letting go. This is how Love lifts you. I Love you, Nik ******God is afoot!

You might not be able to see the sun/Son yet, or hear It, but you can feel It, you can feel Him, while you look out at the seeming others and know, they're Him, which means they're perfect.

And this whole world is springing from it." - Rumi "The whole universe is full of this voice, if you can but open your (inner) ear and listen to it. The most important facts that should be understood about the Sound Current are that it is God Himself and that it is now within every human being. It is the Supreme Creator, manifested and manifesting. It is not only an emanation of God, but it is God Himself. God is not static. He is superlatively dynamic, and the Sound Current is His dynamic energy and intelligent life force in a continuous process of manifestation. It is the omnipresent form of God which flows into and through everything from the highest to the lowest, and surrounds and pervades everything in the universe. "The Audible Life Stream is the everlasting form of the Lord, and is always within every one of us," says the Master Sawan Singh. But while the Holy Word is within each one of us, we cannot hear its melodies or see its light because we are spiritually deaf and blind. It is to this fact that Jesus referred when he said. "They seeing see not; and hearing they hear not." (Matthew 13:13) - Shah Niaz via Yoga and the Bible "If there is no thought, there is no me, and if there is no me, there is neither thought nor desire nor fear. The whole intent and purpose of self-inquiry is to focus the attention intensely and ceaselessly on the sense of I so that the spurious imposter me and it's identifications are exposed as nonexistent." -Ramesh Balsakar

What Is Yours Will Know Your Face. #GMfaves

It's all here, always now, the storm and the rainbow, but the purpose of your experience is to live moment to seeming moment, in and AS this Love. That's what you're missing. As often as you notice you forget to consult with Me, to listen for Me before acting, you forget to be this Love. If you could just Love more, you would see more of what's already Here.

We Are Going to Live This Day Different #GMfaves

You're back! But you have to keep coming back. In the midst of your day, in the midst of that impulse to scroll your phone, in the midst of your worry sessions, you must surrender to this process that's unfolding, that's happening to you.

It's the growth happening in Here. Fix your eyes, Here. Even when you're seeing what's around you, it's like you're looking inside. You're feeling inside. You're hearing inside.

We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening.  Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed." - Alice Walker, Living by the Word "God did not bring you to this wilderness to leave you.  But to lead you to a better life." -via IG @LaurenFortenberry "Something really beautiful happens when you're in the middle of your pain and you choose to surrender everything to God." -via IG @goforspiritual "We're not pretending to be joyful or hiding behind rose-colored glasses  we're smiling faithfully and truthfully in every season because we know Him and His way of working in the unseen." -@wildflowerpages via IG "When we fix our eyes on God and watch Him work, the Lord will help us not to be shaken or unsettled." -Karen Ehman

Love is the Sure Proof That Your Prayers Have Touched God #GMfaves

God responds to your prayers in many ways, the first response being Joy and inner Peace.  His Peace. Today I share about my current read/listen, 'Autobiography of a Yogi', and how we're divine roomies in "this place where every thought and breath starts", where every prayer is expressed and answered.  In this place where you practice being Love until Love is all that's left.

Great Things Shall Be Required of You #GMfaves

"Step out onto the path of service, but remember-do not fail to take the time each day for a loving worship and adoration of the King of your life. Then shall you be fitted and worthy for the work which you are to do." -Eva Bell Werber, Voice of the Master Today, every time you're troubled by a thought, remember where that thought is taking place. It's taking place in the ocean of Love. Hear this Silence. Feel this Love. And you'll see that even that disturbing thought, its essence is Love. And because you recognize it, it turns back into Love, it turns back into silence, where it becomes a more beautiful thought. One that says, "you're not upset, you just forgot that you're submerged in Love," or "how can I serve you", or "how can I help this one"?

Practice: Cool Head, Warm Heart #GMweekends

When the heart is warm with Love, the head is automatically cool.    Your response is chill. Your thoughts are chill. Sometimes, it's like they're saying- "Thank you for giving me this Love as a reminder of Your presence. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, this moment, to remember you." And you can take as many of these moments as  you need during the day. Every time you close your eyes and go within, that's the Sabbath. That's true rest. That's the absence of desire (aka the feeling of lack), and the presence of all things GoOD. I Love you, Nik [email protected] ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings ******God is afoot!

Your eyes, I found them everywhere All I want is to sing to you The song that no one has heard All my life has lead me to A heart as wide as the world Shree Raam Jai Raam Jai Jai Raam“ “No matter how turbulent the situation, Lord Shiva’s head and inner realm remains peaceful. Though the head is cool, the heart is always warm with compassion for the world. What we need is a cool head and a warm heart. But what we see in the world today is the very opposite: most people are hot-headed and cold-hearted. Everyone’s head is heated up by worldly thoughts, and the heart has become frosty with selfishness. If our head is cool, we can face the most adverse circumstances peacefully and turn it to our advantage." -Amma 2017 via @Sherenevismaya on IG "We must have one purpose alone: to seek the realization of His presence, His power, and His grace. When we emerge from these periods, usually we find that the “things” are added unto us: whatever knowledge we need to carry on our business, whatever physical strength or moral support." -Joel Goldsmith, 'A Parenthesis in Eternity' "A life built upon Sabbath is contented because in rhythms of rest we discover our time is full of the holiness of God." -Shelly Miller

Love Will Come Through #GMfaves

The tears you cry are not because you're lost, they're because you're found. You are found in Him. Love sees you, and you cry when you look away.

Can you feel Love moving through you? Nothing else is needed.

The things you've been waiting for begin tapping you on the shoulder like, 'where have you been? I've been here!' But you were lost in thought.

Let's Get Lifted | A Powerfully Simple Way to Meditate #GMfavorite

If you lie down, Love will raise you up... you will rise in Love, in Freedom, in Victory. Try meditating in corpse pose, today. Try surrendering, today. Try saying 'yes' to Loving Silence, today. Stop trying and do, today. Stop doing and BE, today. There's a place inside (and out) that's already surrendering, no matter the position the body is in. There's a place inside (and out) that's already Silent-Love, no matter the state the mind is in. Be That, today and always. I Love you, Nik [email protected]  Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings __________________________________________ Today's Quotes: "The silence is another way of saying to keep your mind stayed on God all the time.  God is the silence and you are that.  Feel the silence right now.  You can feel it.  It's a thing of beauty.  You know when you're getting into the true silence, you begin to become happier, and happier, and happier for no reason.  It makes no difference what's going on in the world.  The world is in one place and you're in another place.  In the deep silence you are identifying with the substratum of creation.  Always remember to go into the silence.  A sage is always in the silence.  A sage may be talking, listening, partaking of activities, but to the sage there's only silence." -Robert Adams "I have never known Truth to fail, never known any 'problem' that didn't vanish, once I was wholly honest with Omnipresent Awareness.  Do not just declare words, as if reciting a formula, but absolutely admit Love is pure, single, unadulterated-- thus unchallenged, unopposed Authority." -Aiken "To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders." -Lao Tzu "Whatever happens, hold onto God's feet without loosening the grip even slightly." -Amma

Love is the Miracle and It Becomes the Miracle #GMfaves

But you have to keep feeling the Miracle instead of the resistance. You have to keep feeling where you are instead of where you were, instead of where you are afraid you might end up. Knowing that where you are now is only an appearance. You're Home, now. You're in God, now, but because you can't see, you see an office, you see an apartment you don't want to be in anymore... but that only appears to be (t)here, that body only appears to be (t)here, the thoughts only appear to be (t)here. Love is Here and the Miracle happens POWERFULLY when you know/feel this, Now. and Now, and Now, and Now. :) It's a feeling You're chanting/recognizing... now, and now, and now, and now.

Once you have God, you have everything you need. You no longer have 'needs'. You just 'have'. You just 'are'. Because God is where you are.

Someone asked me over the weekend what my main mantra is, and what their mantra should be.  This is my answer. ❤️ Note: the most powerful mantra is the one you chant and keep chanting.  The one that helps you keep recognizing the unbroken mantra of Silent-Love that's always, already here.

You're going to look back and appreciate these days. These apparent 'slow' or 'no momentum' days. So relax into that Gratitude, now. Relax back into Love, now.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go(d) #GMfaves

The more often you remember 'Love appearing as this', the more Love moves to the foreground, and 'this' moves to the background.

Affirm: I will not react to appearances today, I will see through them #GMfaves

My life depends on me being Love, because when I'm being Love, I can see through appearances, and when I can see through appearances, they change.  This is how you see yourself out of any situation you have outgrown.  Not through resistance. When the resistance comes up, immediately see through it, too!  See through every thought, through every emotion, through every person, place, and thing, to the REAL.  And let the REAL manifest and define Itself.  Note: The REAL feels like the feeling of Love in and as that body.  And you can sense It even when the body is discordant.

Let's Have an Out-of-Body Experience #GMweekend

The title is kind of a misnomer, because you aren't actually 'in' the body to begin with.  You're simply aware of the body... aware of the sense of having a body.  But what is it that's aware? What's aware of these words right now?  What's aware of the questions your mind is throwing out right now? This awareness is what you've been looking for, and It's actually what you're looking with.  This awareness is the way 'out' of ordinariness and into the extraordinary.   Let's open the door, together.

After it has taken root in good soil, it still must grow.  We are not yet in peace, for this peace is a process of becoming, a work that we accomplish—or rather that we allow to be accomplished—within us. Nowhere else will it be found, and no one can sell or rent it to us. There may well appear merchants of happiness with pacifiers that can calm the troubles of our days and nights for a while. But there are no merchants of beatitude. There is only a Presence that is to be discovered, and allowed to grow, in the very core of ourselves." -Leloup, Jean-Yves.

There is really only one problem-- distraction. #GMfaves

'If riches increase, set not your heart on them."* When opportunities come, when all the doors are thrown open,  because of how you've opened yourself to Grace, set not your heart on them. Keep your heart Here. Remembering that God is your provider, not what He has turned into, what he seems to become. The riches don't provide, the opportunities don't provide, they appear because of Him. Because of This... that you're hearing in abundance, that you're feeling in abundance.

My Feelings Are Not God, God is God. #GMfaves

If things in your life aren't going good right now... good. Things always get worse before they get better. Like any renovation or spring cleaning you've ever witnessed, dust gets stirred up, things get pulled out, stuff gets thrown away... sorted. Space is made. Be thankful for this Space. Even though It looks empty. He'll make It full again. It already is, but your eyes can't see. Trust. And bear witness. I Love you, Nik p.s. Love isn't a feeling, It's beyond.

Your Hard Work and GoOD Deeds Are Never Wasted. Proceed.

Why are you so tired, when 'I' perform(s) that which is given you to do? It's My responsibility, My battle, not yours. That's My meeting. That's My commute. That's Me stirring in you. Love stirring.

This leads to tension. One way or the other, take a direction and regain your footing. Have you noticed that you usually doubt the things that are positive in your life? You don't doubt negative things so much. You doubt a person's honesty, and you believe in his dishonesty. When someone is angry with you, you have no doubt about his anger. But when someone says he loves you, a doubt creeps in: Does he really love me? When you are depressed, do you ever think: Am I really depressed? No, you accept your depression as a fact. Yet when you are happy, you doubt: Am I really happy; is this what I really wanted? You doubt your capability, but never your weakness. Look at this tendency to doubt the positive things in your life. Doubt the negative and put your trust in the positive. Put doubt in its proper place and doubt the doubts." -Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, A Note to a Sincere Seeker "There is a breakthrough breaking through.

This is What You Came For #GMweekends

You came for the Real not the fake. You came for the Kingdom, not the symbols of It.  While you are truly blessed by worldly success, you're more blessed and excited because you know (you are) the Source of it.

The Only Thing of Real Value is Love Itself #GMweekends

When I sit down in the morning to chant, I'm sitting down to feel Love. When I' sitting down to record for you, I'm sitting down to feel Love. When I'm doing yoga or breathing exercises, I'm doing it to feel Love. When I'm doing any spiritual practice, ever, I'm only doing it as a way to feel Love. The practices will "get you in the room with Christ. But only Love will keep you (t)here."* Everything I do, I do for Love... to remember It, to feel It, to know It as my Self. I Love you, Nik SUPPORT THE SHOW! ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings ________________________________ Today's Quotes: "The most subtle aspect of my teaching is Love. The circle around that subtle point, in order to realize it, is the spiritual practices such as meditation, repetition of the name of the Lord, talking with good people, directing the mind away from harmful thoughts, and so on. In themselves, these spiritual practices are of no value. The only thing of real value is Love itself." -Satya Sai Baba "The true mystic is not a devotee lost in ecstatic communion with the One, or a reclusive saint who avoids others. The true mystic lives alongside other people- coming and going, eating and sleeping, buying and selling, marrying and chatting-- but not for a moment does he forget God." -Abus Sa'id lbn Abi-l-Khayr "The yogi medicine puts you in a room with Christ.  But it can’t keep you there. The only thing that can keep you there is love."* -Maharajji "Q: I have been practicing japa and meditation for a long time, but there is not enough progress. Amma: You should also love God. Without love no amount of japa and meditation will bear fruit. When your love for God becomes very strong, all the bad vasanas (mental tendencies) within you will automatically drop away. Rowing a boat against the current is difficult, but if there is a sail it becomes easy. Love for God is like a sail that helps the boat go forward. When two lovers are sitting together, they won't like it when anyone comes near them. A real sadhak has the same attitude. He doesn't like anything that isn't related to God. Living with the thought of God always in his mind, he can't bear any obstacles that come between himself and God. Compared to his love for God, everything else is worthless to him. Son, one should have true lakshya bodha (one-pointed focus on the goal). Only then can one's sadhana (spiritual practices) become deep. When someone sets out with a strong desire to reach a certain place, no obstacle can stop him. If he misses the bus, he will take a taxi. But if he lacks interest, he may decide to go home if he misses the bus, thinking he can try again the next day. Children, without intensity in sadhana it is difficult to reach the goal. Before you sow the seed you have to prepare the land, clearing it of grass and weeds. Otherwise it is difficult for the seeds to sprout. In the same way, we can enjoy the bliss of the Self only if we clear the mind of all external things and direct it to God." -Amma

How to Stop Feeling Overwhelmed #GMweekends

God has sent (t)His Love for us to follow out of the illusion. So don't let anything distract you from this Love. Not yourself, not your thoughts, or anyone else. Nothing is worth it. Nothing, this No Thing, this Silence is worth it. It's worth your attention. It made you worthy. It made you Holy. It has given you a Purpose. And right now It looks like whatever you are called to do 'today'. The pressure is not on you, the Presence is on you.* Affirm: The Presence is on me, in me, for me. And then just do it.

It was extraordinarily powerful, as if the whole universe had become silent. Then a tear came down his cheek. We were in awe. After a couple of minutes, his eyes half opened and, with great emotion, he quietly said, 'He lost himself in love, that's how he meditated. He was one with all beings. He loved everyone, even the people who crucified him. He never died. He is the atman [soul]. He lives in the hearts of all. He lost himself in love." -Krishna Das  "God is in me, God is with me.

The Key of Life #GMweekends

Affirm: What I Don't Have Now, I Don't Need Now #GMweekends

'All you need is Love', and you have that, now. You are Love, now, beyond the form, and the formless, aware of both, causing both, appearances. Walking like both a king, and a servant. Let us run.

There is power, but also softness. There is firmness, but also flexibility. The being is like solid emptiness. Immeasurable. Weightless. Yet more solid than a mountain. Lighter than space. Full yet empty. Sublime." -Mooji "Dear friends, I want you to hear this: what is said of Jesus is said of you. I know this can be hard to affirm.  You are the beloved daughter or son of God. Can you believe it? Can you hear it not only in your head through your physical ears but in your gut, hear it so that your whole life can be turned around? Go to the scriptures and read: "I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have written your name in the palm of my hand from all eternity.  I have molded you in the depths of the earth and knitted you in your mother's womb. I love you. I embrace you. You are mine and I am yours and you belong to me." You have to hear this, because if you can hear this divine voice speak to you from all eternity, then your life will become more and more the life of the beloved, because that is who you are." -Henri Nouwen via IG @claremsf "Just wake up and say, "I don't care" for a minute.  Drop the desire and say, "I don't want this", the next second something comes up in you, and that is a smile. -Sri Sri Ravi Shankar "When a cat falls out of a tree, it lets go of itself. The cat becomes completely relaxed, and lands lightly on the ground. But if a cat were about to fall out of a tree and suddenly make up its mind that it didn't want to fall, it would become tense and rigid, and would be just a bag of broken bones upon landing.  In the same way, it is the philosophy of the Tao that we are all falling off a tree, at every moment of our lives. As a matter of fact, the moment we were born, we were kicked off a precipice, and we are falling, and there is nothing that can stop it.  So instead of living in a state of chronic tension, and clinging to all sorts of things that are actually falling with us because the whole world is impermanent, be like a cat." - Alan Watts

It shall burn out all dross of the mortal mind, smallness of nature, meanness of spirit, vindictiveness, jealousy. It shall burn out all carelessness of your habits, in the outer realms of your being. My Law and My Order can then function perfectly in your life. Then and then only will you be a worthy vessel for the inflow of My Spirit. Then and then only can My Spirit flow through you to other of My children. Likewise shall all disease be burned from the physical body, that nothing shall interfere with My Plan for your life. As the sigh of your spirit disturbs the flame and makes the candle drip, so the faintest wavering of your feet from the path of attainment causes a less steady burning of My Flame in your heart, and My Work goes on in imperfection. Oh, My Beloved, how necessary that you live with the eye single, to the high purpose of your calling. But you have many helpers. No soul who enters the path is left to walk alone. So go on, day by day, with the light and assurance of My Love in your face. Mighty Ones whom you see not, are by your side.

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties... #GMfaves

Love is appearing as a European retreat right now, but I'll be back with new episodes on Jan 8th! I love you! I am you!  ****** Chanting keeps my eyes on God.  My 'I' in, and AS God.  I chant Ram, Ram, Ram all throughout the day as often as I can remember (60%-75% of my waking hours-- aloud when I'm alone, silently when I'm with others).  When I'm hearing the Sound (sounds like a high pitch 'eeeeee', here), I stop chanting and just Hear. Sometimes I continue to chant Ram WHILE hearing the Sound at the same time. Whether I'm chanting or hearing, I'm KNOWING by feeling that I'm not here as this body, as this scene, as this moment, I'm here as Love.  I'm here as the Sound. I'm here as Light.  The Sound, the Name breaks my belief in the world, in my problems, in myself. This is a 24/7 365 practice. It must go on constantly. It is your rope. Your lifeline. Keep climbing and don't let go!      Check out this excerpt on mantras from Polishing the Mirror by Ram Dass- "Keep repeating your mantra consciously until it has become a strong habit. Go for a walk and say the mantra all the time you are walking. Notice everything but keep the mantra going. Keep realizing that being with God is your focus… and therefore everything you see is part of God. Maharajji said, “The best form in which to worship God is all forms.” Everyone you meet is Ram who has come to teach you something. Mantra is remembering that place in the heart – Ram, Ram, Ram. Say it, mouth it, think it, feel it in your heart. You are continually meeting and merging into perfection. The Divine is present in the soul of all living beings and in the Universe."

You never know what's right around the corner." -@SisterCody via IG "I want to speak to the hidden people for a moment...I don't find it coincidental that many of God's servants were found in the most unconventional & ambiguous places. They weren't found in Synagogues, or popular gather places but fields, deserts, at home, mangers, or at work. The settings we find them I'm sure are strategic in that they develop certain skills, and traits that would translate to their callings but also I can't help but think because it was one of the last places men would look for where a move of God would come from next. He often tucked them away, but in plain sight but hidden. Where everyone could see, but could not yet SEE. What a mystery of the Gospel. If you feel hidden, do not despise your present status. If you are busy wondering when God is going to do the things you've heard & envisioned -be patient. The time is coming sooner than you thought. And you'll look back at this 'hidden' time of consecration & private development with longing. When God 'reveals' you, He wants to make sure you have the capacity in character, to remain where He calls. It's not your gifts that will sustain you, but your character. That's what's being carefully curated, carefully molded, privately developed, and carefully grown. Do not despise this time. The hidden time is protection. This time + the lessons are invaluable, and it will be the key to being able to remain & go higher. "For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light." - Mark 4:22 - @prophetess.maggie via IG "Waiting is just a gift of time in disguise - a time to pray wrapped up in a ribbon of patience - because is the Lord ever late? -Ann Voskamp via IG @worshipblog "Don't try to stop thinking, let it happen. Just recognize that which is not thinking." -Adyashanti

The Gravity Of God's Love #GMfaves

Love is appearing as a European retreat right now, but I'll be back with new episodes on Jan 8th! I love you! I am you!  ****** Like those burglar alarms that make no noise, that aren't audible to the trespasser, but sound somewhere else... when I feel invaded by thought, I close my eyes and I Hear. I hear this Silence sounding, and in that Emptiness, in that Quiet Space, help gets deployed, problems get solved, the right people show up. This Silence is the helper. It is the Comforter. It is Love. If you could just stop leaving this Love, if you could just stop forgetting to hear this Love, you'd start seeing changes. You'd start seeing yourself as Love, knowing only Love Is here, only this Weight, that has no form, that has no shape, that has no 'weight', is here. But here where you are, It's experienced as a Joyful Gravity, pulling what's for you, Destiny, into Your orbit. I Love you, Nik Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings __________________________________________ Today's Quotes: “For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” -2 Corinthians 4:17 NLT "Your struggles are not because you didn't pray the right way or because you didn't pray enough, or because you have weak faith or insufficient intercessors. It is because God is using you in ways that you may not understand now, but one day you will. One day you will see how God used your affliction to prepare you for an incomparable weight of glory." -@Therealsweetspot Derrika Danielle "A million speak of love, yet how few know, True love is not to lose remembrance even for an instant." -Kabir "I used to think that in order to abide in Christ, I had to read my bible every day, pray everyday, and share my faith every single day. My abiding  was depending on me doing something, but this is just wrong. Abiding in Christ is not another work that needs to be performed, but it's a reality to live in. In the same way that one lives in a house, and only need not leave in order to remain in the house, you are in Christ.  And abiding in Hm is simply the decision to not walk away." -@Jkjoe via IG

The WORD Made Flesh #GMfaves

Love is appearing as a European retreat right now, but I'll be back with new episodes on Jan 8th! I love you! I am you!  You can call off the search. (T)here is no other Voice but this One. There is no other Silence. There is no other God. There is no other awakening experience. When your mind is telling you that you're not 'there' yet, you're hearing it from 'there'. This is It. You're hearing THE Voice. You are the Voice. This Silence is what you are. This silence is what I Am (is). Affirm that, 'This Silence is what I Am." The first few times with words, and then drop the words. Your whole being is singing, SHREEMing, 'I Am' without words... being the silence I Am, being the Love I Am, being That, I Am. (Exodus 3:14)      Meditation excerpt from the 'Little Book of Life and Death' by Douglas Harding "There is no instrument other than deep meditation that can detect the presence of that almighty Grace within. Still the body, withdraw the energy from the senses into the brain, calm the heart: Christ will be there; you will feel the divine joy of the Infinite Christ." -Yogananda Reading from, 'Voice of the Masters' by Eva Bell Werber

"Blessed Is He Who Came Into Being Before He Came Into Being." #GMweekends

"Everyday I say to myself, today I will begin." - St. Anthony of the Desert Today, we begin.  This very moment, we begin... remembering that we ARE what's appearing as this moment, we are the substratum of the Now, we are the  Christ.  We celebrate the birth of Jesus today, the birth of the awareness of the Christ among us, and now, the birth of our awareness of the Christ within us. Repeat this mantra by Herb Fitch, "I am not man or woman, I live the day as I, Spirit", and notice how you're already, effortlessly detached from the body.   There's some space (t)here, naturally.  You, as Awareness, don't have to try to detangle your Self from the body, you already are the witness.  You already are Love.  Be That, by feeling It and remembering to feel It all day.  "Blessed is he who came into being before he came into being."

What You Call the 'Christmas Spirit' Is Your True Nature #GMweekends

You’re feeling absolutely fantastic this morning! But not for the reason you think. You don’t feel good because it’s Christmas Eve. You don’t feel good because you know what’s under the tree, or even because you’re off work or have no professional Zoom meetings tomorrow (likely for a whole week!), or that your favorite food is being prepared, or that your playlist is FIRE and the Temptations are going in on ‘Silent Night’. All of these things may very well seem to be happening, but they’re not causing that quiet-Joy you’re aware of. You’re just presently in alignment... allowing yourself to feel good, to experience God. You’re currently BEing your true Self! This is your natural state— one of uncaused joy, ease, love, relaxation and peace. What people call ‘The Christmas Spirit’ is your original nature, and you can feel this way even on your first day back to work, if you give yourself permission. God didn’t come closer this morning, and It won’t get further away next week. We just changed the way we are living in this moment. And now we must keep living this way... remembering to recognize that the Light is ALWAYS on inside. That we are this Light. If you can stop waiting for special occasions to remember this background Joy, to feel Go(o)d, to be yourSelf, your life will change drastically from the inside out and very rapidly. I promise you. #MerryChristmas With you in and AS Christhood, @curlynikki Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings ________________________________________ Today's Quotes: "We all think of the Lord when troubled, never when at peace.

While doing whatever one is doing— seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving, sleeping, breathing or talking— one should realize one’s essential nature as pure consciousness. Thus does one attain liberation.”  - The Yoga Vasistha

I Am the Voice of the Sound #GMfaves

Remember who you are when you're in that airport, or doing that last minute shopping trip. When you find yourself in line, find this Peace in that line. Find your smile in that line. Remember (t)His truth in that line, and It will relax your shoulders, It will relax your stomach, It will relax that belief that you're the one standing in that line. That line is happening in you. That store is happening in you, and then you are the Light of that store. Keep catching yourself, and letting yourself go. Catching yourself, and letting yourself go. Catching yourself believing in the world, catching yourself believing in others, catching yourself in fear, catching yourself in worry, catching yourself pretending to be what you're not. You are the Light of the world. You are Amazing Grace. How sweet, Your Sound.

In Its brilliance let the shadow of your karmas fade.  The NAAM help you steer through this ocean of life and death." -Kabir "I Am the Light of the world," declared Jesus (John 8:12), but he also said, 'you are the Light of the world. (Matthew 5:I4). A paradox? Or, perhaps, insight into the essential unity between Christ and creation that forms the foundation of the mystical life? The light that shines in us is the light of Christ shining through us. This is not something we have to make happen; it is something we must allow to happen. Not something we achieve, something we receive. Yet to bask in that Christ-light within, we need to open ourselves to receive it.

This Will RAPIDLY Transform Your Life #GMfaves

Like Rumi said, you've been knocking on this door, chanting your mantras, practicing your breathing, reading scripture, sitting for meditation, you've been knocking, praying, ceaselessly, and finally, the door opens... and you see that you've been knocking from the inside. You're already inside, in Here in Him with me, we're here together, as One. And the world is new. I Love you, Nik [email protected] Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings ________________________________________ Today's Quotes: “I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.” -Rumi "In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look and learn, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either that key or the door to open, except yourself." -J. Krishnamurti "The key is to be in a state of permanent connectedness with your inner body - to feel it all times. This will rapidly deepen and transform your life." -Eckhart Tolle. "Real death is death of the ego. Real birth is to dwell in one's natural state." -Ramana Paravidyopanishad "Your mind will tell you go somewhere else, go do this and go do that, keep searching, keep looking. It will never tell you there's nothing to look for. It will never tell you there's nothing to do. It will never tell you just be yourself, awaken. It will put you through all kinds of trials and tribulations. It will even make you believe that the more you suffer, the greater the value. But if you're wise, you will simply observe, and watch your mind telling you all these things. You will not fight, because your mind will always win. You will simply dissolve your mind through observation, through becoming the witness, or by asking "to whom do these thoughts come?" And the mind will grow weaker. But it will really fight you. It will cause you to observe many dastardly things in this world, and perhaps some upheavals in your life also. To make you believe in your mind and its power. I guess that's what Jesus meant when he said "Get thee behind me Satan!" In other words his mind was trying to tell him things are wrong, you're wasting your time. So he named his mind Satan. And told it "don't bother me, don't come up with all these things: I don't believe in you, you're a liar." That's exactly what you must do. Let the mind show us the worst. Allow the ego to do what it wants. But you be the observer, the witness. Hold on tight to the 'I. And follow the I thread to the heart. And you'll start laughing for you'll come to the conclusion, there never was a mind, there never was an I, there never was an ego, there never were problems, there never was a world, there never was a personal God, there never was karma, there's no such thing as enlightenment, there's no such thing as awakening. You are already That.  So be it." -Robert Adams Support the show Beginning Aug 7, 2023 - 'GoOD Mornings with CurlyNikki' will host pre and post roll ads within the back catalogue.

That it is your right and your heritage." -Seth "There is a book that is not written, it's just unfolding. It's like we are each actors without a script and everything you do, God has written and you are just finding as we go. You have to learn how to read this book, to read the language of the life force and the deeper Self. It really brings you back into the reality of true existence. Sensing life and listening to the needs of each unfolding moment, empty of mind and fully present in the heart." -Mooji "Every decision you make is not a decision about what to do...

All that is True is in the heart. I am still among movement I am happy among sadness I am love among anger I am light among darkness I am life among death I am but of a moment. Yet ultimately there is no moment, There is no I.

Can we skip to the GoOD Part #GMFaves

Although you can't skip to the part of the day where you're already done with everything, you can skip to that feeling. You can stream this feeling even while you're at the office today. While you're at the store, you can BE 'Saturday'. You can be Sunday morning. You don't have to be Monday. You don't have to be tired... the 'character' you're playing is, your character can NOT, today, but You can. You can be Love. You can be infinitely Patient, even when they're not, because You are Faith, You are Life. And You trust your Self. You're no longer imitating that character. Taking on their fears and their personality traits, the way they speak. You are the Silent One. The Ageless One, the Faceless One, the Fearless One, the Still One. Remember? :) Welcome Back. I Love you, Nik [email protected] p.s. the GoOD part is always this part!!!! It's always NOW! p.p.s. Maharajji chanting the Name , Ram.  Today's Quotes: "It was God's word that made us; is it any wonder that His Word should sustain us?" -Charles Spurgeon via @WorshipBlog  "Don't copy the behavior and customers of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." -Romans 12:2 "All the complexities of the human condition can be rendered null and void if you touch the hem of the Christ Robe in your meditations. Fear, conflict, pain, sorrow, and emotional turmoil can all be dissolved in a moment of God-contact." -Don Mardak  "A moment with the beloved and the river changes its course." -Anandamayi Ma  "Stillness is the only thing in this world that has no form. But then, it is not really a thing, and it is not of this world." -Eckhart Tolle "He who utters the Name of God while walking gets the merit of a sacrifice at every step. His body becomes a place of pilgrimage. He who repeats God's Name while working always finds perfect peace. He who utters the Name of God while eating gets the merit of a fast even though he has taken his meals. Even if one were to give in charity the whole earth encircled by the seas it would not equal the merit of repeating the Name. By the power of the Name one will know what cannot be known, One will see what cannot be seen, One will speak what cannot be spoken, One will meet what cannot be met. Tuka says, Incalculable is the gain that comes from repeating the Name of God." -Sant Tukaram

One Who is Everywhere is Joyous, One Who is Nowhere is Free. #GMweekend

Rock and sway between these two mantras today- 'I am nowhere'. 'I am everywhere'.  They're both true.  The moment you make the felt-connection with Love, you are beyond the body.  You are no longer attached to it.  You're free and that freedom feels like Joy.  You are everywhere, and nowhere.  You are everyone and no one.   You are the invisible,  formless, boundless Love appearing as the  countless visible forms.  And because you know This, because you ARE This, that body smiles.  Love is felt as its very being.  I Love you, Nik [email protected] ************************ To claim your free gift, leave a review on Apple Podcasts, screenshot it and send it to me at [email protected]!  Join us on Patreon to support the show, and tune into and participate in live video Q&As with me!  Support the show Today's Quotes: "When we know who we are, we're everybody and we're free."  -Krishna Das "Toss attachment for body aside, realizing I am everywhere.  One who is everywhere is joyous." -Osho, The Book of Secrets (On letting go of attachment)  "You will not ask “how.” If your house is on fire you will not ask anyone, you will not go seeking a master to ask how to come out of it. If the house is on fire you will simply get out of it. You will not lose a single moment. You will not search for the teacher, you will not consult the scriptures. And you will not try to choose in what ways one has to come out, what means have to be adopted, and which door is the right door. These things are irrelevant when the house is on fire. When you know what attachment is, the house is on fire. You can put it aside.  There is no need to ask how. It is absolutely a fire, a hell. You can jump out of it. This sutra says: 'Toss attachment for body aside, realizing I am everywhere.'  And the moment you toss aside the attachment, you will realize you are everywhere. Because of this attachment you feel you are limited by the body. It is not the body which is limiting you; it is your attachment to it. It is not the body which is making a barrier between you and the reality; it is your attachment to it. Once you know what the attachment is not there, there is no body to you. Rather, the whole existence becomes your body; your body becomes a part of the total existence. Then it is not separate." -Osho. The Book of Secrets (p. 929). Osho International. Kindle Edition.

If everything in your life seems to be changing, let it. #GMfaves

God is saying-- It was from Me, all of it. So soften, into this moment, into that 'good' or 'bad' mood. And receive the Love that I AM (is) constantly Giving, Vibrating, Ringing. Singing.

You Will Soon See That It Was GoOD #GMfaves

If tears have been flowing more than usual lately, then know that you're closer than usual, closer than you used to be , closer to your breakthrough. Those tears that fall are watering your harvest, a heavy one. The tears must be. They must fall.

The Only Real Gratitude #GMfaves

Imagine you have a direct line to God up to your right ear what do you hear? Prayer. Without words. True prayer. The one where you listen to God listening, the one where you hear God hearing you feel, 'thank you Father, I Am.' Happy Thanksgiving, I Love you, Nik [email protected] "In prayer, I do not go to God to have certain things brought about for tomorrow or for Thanksgiving or for Christmas. I don't do that, I go to God in this way. 'Today, tomorrow and all time to come, God, I belong to Thee. Map out my days.'  And then, I sit in complete silence, in complete quietness, as if I really and truly had a telephone receiver at my ear and were trying to hear somebody at the other end. It isn't so much that I expect to hear a voice, although I sometimes do." -Joel S Goldsmith "Only those who understand that God is their own consciousness and that from this individual, yet infinite, consciousness flow all things can really know the true sense of gratitude. The only real gratitude is that which is felt for the gift of spiritual discernment." -Joel S Goldsmith "Dan Rather, CBS anchor, once asked Mother Teresa what she said during her prayers. She answered, "I listen." So Dan turned the question and asked, "Well then, what does God say?"  Mother Teresa smiled with confidence and answered, "He listens." For an instant, Dan didn't know what to say. "And if you don't understand that," Mother Teresa added, "I can't explain it to you." -Via ServiceSpace "Maybe the soul is tired because all it needs is more time with the Lord; Maybe the heart is tired because it has been fed with all- the wrong things." -@worshipblog via IG Cory Asbury "I want to reach for God the way I reach for my phone. When I'm bored,  when I'm uncomfortable,  when I need answers or entertainment. When I'm lonely and need someone to talk to." @worshipblog via IG Cory Asbury "If He holds the universe He is holding your world together." -@worshipblog "You could go all through the balance of your career without a treatment, without a lesson, without reading a book, and find greater harmony, greater peace, greater health,  than you have ever known, just with the simple realization of, 'Thank you, Father, I Am.  I Am'. Not will be and not shall be, but I Am.  Not ought to be and not deserve to be. Just, "Thank you, Father, I am! -Joel S. Goldsmith

Miracles Are Your Calling #GMweekends

Every time you become aware of a worry thought about tomorrow or next week, pause and pray. Pause by listening for Silence instead of to the worry thought.  Remember that you're not thinking that worry thought.  That thought isn't yours.  You're simply listening to it... and you can choose to believe it or not.  You can choose to claim it or not.  You can choose to listen to Silence instead! And you pray by recognizing and feeling Go(o)d in the Silence.  You pray by repeating (hearing or becoming aware of) the above mantra, the truth that it isn't you that must face these problems, but God in you.  You pray by remembering that God in you has no problems, knows no problems, sees no problems. You pray by reaching and feeling for even 2% of the Love that is fully present in and AS that moment and by watching your experience of the moment and the seeming moment itself, shift. The awareness to pause and pray is the miracle, and it manifests as such. I Love you, Nik ▶▶Join our new forum, GoOD Friends and enter the Mala Giveaway!

It Doesn't Take Time, It Takes Alignment #GMweekends

And it doesn't matter how long you're in 'alignment', but how often you return Here. How frequently you find yourself not wanting, not seeking, but settled, in Silence, in Stillness, In God. Not settling in life, not being 'content' with the way things are, but seeing through the way things are. Being contentment Itself. Aligning and settling your sight, your ear, on what's actually Here. Now. And Now. and Now.

But so are you, you just haven't realized it yet." -Eckhart Tolle "Settle yourself in solitude and you will come upon God in yourself." -St. Teresa of Avila "Heaven is this moment Hell is the burning desire for this moment to be different." -Jeff Foster "Now is where Love breathes." -Rumi "Can you go a week without wanting?" -@JiteshVaswani via IG "To have finally dealt  with suffering is to consume it into yourself. Which means you have to, with eyes open, be able to keep your heart open in hell... And what it involves is bearing the unbearable. And who you really are can do it. So that who you think you are has to die in the process." -Ram Dass “Many misunderstandings and false beliefs about Christ will clear if you realize that there is no past or future in Christ. To say that Christ was or will be is a contradiction in terms. Jesus was. He was a man who lived two thousand years ago and realized divine presence, his true nature. And so he said: “Before Abraham was, I am.” He did not say: “I already existed before Abraham was born.” That would have meant that he was still within the dimension of time and form identity. The words I am used in a sentence that starts in the past tense indicate a radical shift, a discontinuity in the temporal dimension. It is a Zen-like statement of great profundity. Jesus attempted to convey directly, not through discursive thought, the meaning of presence, of self-realization. He had gone beyond the consciousness dimension governed by time, into the realm of the timeless. The dimension of eternity had come into this world. Eternity, of course, does not mean endless time, but no time. Thus, the man Jesus became Christ, a vehicle for pure consciousness. And what is God’s self-definition in the Bible? Did God say, “I have always been, and I always will be?” Of course not. That would have given reality to past and future. God said: “I AM THAT I AM.” No time here, just presence.” - Excerpt From, 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle and Now... And NOW :) I Love youuuu!   Support the show

Put Your Thoughts on Transparency Mode #GMweekends

Never hold a thought, never drop the Thread. Watch and listen to your mind.  Notice when it's doing what it does.  Notice its judgements, criticisms, projections, conclusions.  Don't react. Don't respond. Don't try to stop them.  Just notice.  And then notice what else is present.  Listen to the Silence that the thoughts are coming and going in.  Feel that Silence... Joy, Love... the Bliss of the Self.  When you feel this Bliss, It puts the thoughts on transparency mode (like your noise canceling headphones).  Now you're no longer hypnotized by thinking...

This is a waste of time. There’s nobody in here but me. What’s this all about?” Right on cue, there’s your roommate. You may have a clear intention to be quiet inside, but your roommate won’t cooperate. And it’s not just when you try to be quiet. It has something to say about everything you look at: “I like it. I don’t like it. This is good. That’s bad.” It just talks and talks. You don’t generally notice because you don’t step back from it. You’re so close that you don’t realize that you’re actually hypnotized into listening to it. Basically, you’re not alone in there. There are two distinct aspects of your inner being. The first is you, the awareness, the witness, the center of your willful intentions; and the other is that which you watch. The problem is, the part that you watch never shuts up.

You are a Candle. And at Night a Candle Stands and Burns.

Rumi says, "Listen, Stand up in prayer during the night, For you are a candle, And at night, A candle stands and burns." And when you believe in this world (as something separate or other than God), it is the night. It is the Kali Yuga. And in the Kali Upanishad it says to go from night to day, to go from ignorance to enlightenment, you stand and chant. You stand and sing. You stand and praise, in the dark, in the storm. You stand knowing, God is Here. Love is Here. The Dawn is Here. Even when we can't see It, we feel It. We thank It.

Notice." -Byron Katie "Eternal Awareness, you are the only Presence.  Your sacred name is I Am.  Your perfection is just a realization away.  As consciousness unfolds, give now your Grace and forgive unawareness. Let the mind be an avenue of Awareness-- free of belief.

Either to show off, prove yourself or to provide. Just for a moment imagine there is no one to appreciate your achievements nor to support your ambition and you will find your self to be calm and free. " -Ravi Shankar "If meditation is anything, it is a deep and profound willingness to listen. That's what Silence is about. Don't try to be silent. That's trying to impose control. Instead, just listen. But listening is a humble thing. Listen. You know, because the mind wants to come in there and it wants to hear its own voice. So meditation is an embodied form of listening." -Adyashanti "Nothing can stop what God is about to do in your life." - @NeilVermillion "This feels like the way because it is." -@SourceMessages  Support the show Beginning Aug 7, 2023 - 'GoOD Mornings with CurlyNikki' will host pre and post roll ads within the back catalogue.

Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig. Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. No rhetoric, no tremolos, no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, completely unencumbered.” -Aldous Huxley "God, I rest in You. I wait patiently for you to flood my awareness with the Love that You are. I look past the illusions of lack, limitation and sin the mind sees, and acknowledge that You alone exist.

This is the Missing Piece #GMweekends

Esther Hicks said, 'the way you get the missing piece, is by not focusing on the piece that's missing.' Instead of focusing on your intention, focus on the Peace you have. Focus on Love. Focus on Presence. You focus on on what you already have an abundance of,  like the Name. Every time you notice an intention , notice the Name, chant the Name of God, your chosen one, and in that moment you become the Chosen One, again.

There is a phenomenal amount of energy which supports you because the whole life process - from a microbe to a worm, to an insect, to a bird, to an animal, to a tree, to a plant - every one of them is living with this intention: they want to be something more than what they are right now. That intention creates a kind of consecration of its own, it creates a certain sacredness of its own. If you allow the planet to be just the way it was, and if you simply sit here or sleep, you will find the whole place will become like a consecrated space... This is the reason why yogis always withdrew into forests and mountain caves.  Because just sitting there, the intention of nature is crystal clear to you. The main thing is to grow beyond all limitations which are restricting you right now. That intention is being expressed by every grain of soil out there - don't miss it! If you become without intention, you will feel the intention of the Existence. When you become one with that, you travel so much more easily in that direction." -Sadhguru The Name I chant is Ram.   Support the show Beginning Aug 7, 2023 - 'GoOD Mornings with CurlyNikki' will host pre and post roll ads within the back catalogue.

Let God Happen #GMweekends

What you usually do is you 'stop' letting yourself be Loved by God because you're angry, or frustrated, or stressed. You don 't have time to let God love you. You say, 'I'm too busy trying to get this done', or, 'I'm trying to get there from here...' Start noticing moments like these and close your eyes on them and say, 'Let it happen.' Let God happen.

The transition to our realized Christhood changes our life from one of getting to one of letting. we let that mind be in us which was also in Christ Jesus: we let "the imprisoned splendor escape."  The whole purpose of our life changes as this enlightened awareness lifts consciousness. the kingdom is within not outside to get.  Through meditation we enter that kingdom and let it flow out from our conscious oneness with god. we are then a blessing to all we meet. we are no longer in bondage to getting: we are released into the joy of letting.

Next Time You Feel Lonely... #GMweekends

Instead of avoiding or trying to cover the Silence by reaching for creature comforts today (idle chatter, unnecessary busyness, etc), reach for the Comforter in the Silence.  Sit in the big Quiet and feel for the Love inside.  Touching this place inside is the end of loneliness.  It's the end of fear.  It's the end of your perceived separation from God, from your Self.   Reach for the Comforter, and smile, and then go about your Sunday in and AS Love.

To avoid loneliness, he creates all kinds of relationships, friendships, organizations, political parties, religions and what not. But the basic thing is that he is very much afraid of being lonely. Loneliness is a black hole, a darkness, a frightening negative state almost like death … as if you are being swallowed by death itself. To avoid it, you run out and fall into anybody, just to hold somebody’s hand, to feel that you are not lonely… Nothing hurts more than loneliness. But the trouble is, any relationship that arises out of the fear of being lonely is not going to be a blissful experience, because the other is also joining you out of fear. You both call it love. You are both deceiving yourself and the other. It is simply fear, and fear can never be the source of love. Only those who love are absolutely fearless; only those who love are able to be alone, joyously, whose need for the other has disappeared, who are sufficient unto themselves… The day you decide that all these efforts are failures, that your loneliness has remained untouched by all your efforts, that is a great moment of understanding. Then only one thing remains: to see whether loneliness is such a thing that you should be afraid of, or if it is just your nature. Then rather than running out and away, you close your eyes and go in. Suddenly the night is over, and a new dawn … The loneliness transforms into aloneness. Aloneness is your nature. You were born alone, you will die alone. And you are living alone without understanding it, without being fully aware of it. You misunderstand aloneness as loneliness; it is simply a misunderstanding. You are sufficient unto yourself.” ― Osho "Fear can be an indication that we are letting go of false comforts to find the true comfort in the silence.  Fear can be a sign that we are becoming aware of our unnecessary busyness, the loneliness we feel, the needs we usually ignore, including our need for peace, and quiet.  Fear emerge as our substitutes for the Love in the silence no longer work, and only silence is present." - Dr. Bruce Davis

We Have Begun Our Real Journey #GMweekends

Can you hear the Silence, while the crying is (t)here? While the heaviness is (t)here, can you be Light? It doesn't push the heaviness away. When you wake up in the heaviness, you actually bring it closer. Because you feel safe, you can bring it closer, you can hold it, because God is holding you. And because you know God is holding you, you can finally release it. Release the fear. It's not who you are. Release the past. It's not where you are. Release yourself. It's not really here.

One can even take it with one after leaving the body. It is not a worldly kind of wealth.  If you take one piece from a worldly treasure, then it will always be one piece less.

Affirm: "I refuse to do something about nothing." #GMweekends

Original airdate- Nov 2022 God consciousness is always acting, never reacting. It's always recalibrating, restoring you to this new version of you. This new version of you doesn't have the old desires, the old wants. This new version of you is content, is fulfilled, is full. If you already had the relationship, if you already had the house, if you already had that number in your bank account, You wouldn't be affirming it right now. You wouldn't be thinking about it right now. You wouldn't be needing it right now. You'd be silent right now. That's the sound of answered prayer. That's how you sound when you don't want anything, when you don't need anything. That's how you sound when you are one with God. Listen. That's how you sound when you know who you are. That's how you sound when you know God is. This is what a smile sounds like. Affirm to yourself- My life changes now. I am at the beginning of a new journey. I'm sitting up taller. I'm feeling love.

At that moment, what sort of face did you carry? Make that experience and expression the baseline of your life.  You should not come below that high that you already know. You can only exist above that benchmark. Make the high point of your life the base for the future! The tools for transformation are there. You are at the right time in history. This is a great time for blossoming into your fullest. When I am here, you should not aspire for the mundane. Your goal should be nothing less than the Ultimate." -Sadhguru  Before outer conditions can change, your reaction to them must stop, for it is your reaction that perpetuates them by giving truth to the lie.  Refuse to do something about nothing. Reacting to thoughts about the material world is like a hypnotized stage subject swinging at an imaginary opponent.  The secret to non-reaction is in remembering that you are already infinite God-consciousness.  We are to let thoughts pass out of us and thus uncondition our mind. As they are passing out, don't pull them back by thinking about them. The only reaction you should have is to omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence; that reaction being awe and gratitude that you are one with all that is.

You will light up your heart and light up the room.” -Neale Donald Walsch “When you are in readiness, you are in wakefulness. A smile can take you there. A simple smile.

It's All in the Name #GMweekends

Even though the Name may sound like, 'Hare Krishna', or 'Hare Rama', or 'Yahweh', or 'Abba', It's basically saying: 'There's nothing to fear here.' 'This is illusion.' 'This is maya.' 'Only God is here.' 'Only Love is here.' 'You're safe.' 'I'm with you.' 'I'm protecting you.' 'I'm healing you.' 'I'm growing you.' 'I'm prospering you.' 'I'm blessing you.' All of that, is implied, as you chant, as you catch this Beat, and feel this Rhythm. It's all in the Name. It's all in the Name.

You sing like a rooster in your earth-colored shape. Your heart hears and, no longer frantic, begins to dance." - Rumi "Where the pictures on the screen of the mind no longer disturb. That is enlightenment." -Anu Mullick Koul "Out of the four problems of material existence, namely the food problem, the shelter problem, the fear problem and the mating problem, the fear problem gives us more trouble than the others. Yet all fear is vanished as soon as there is the sound of the Lord, represented by His holy name. We can take advantage of these sounds and be free from all threatening problems of material existence." -Srila Prabhupada "The transcendental Presence must become a living experience, permeating our consciousness, flowing through us to the extent that the fingers tingle with It, and the toes. It is a reality, even though the human mind cannot understand It, the human eyes cannot see It, and the human ears cannot hear It. It is so real that when It happens we know It, and there are no questions." - Joel Goldsmith "And if hardship approaches, you then say: You are what I will use to blossom" -Hashim Y. A. " The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness. The instant you are willing to do this there is indeed nothing to fear." -A Course in Miracles "Once a dog came to the ashram to beg for food, Anandamayi Ma placed some food close to wooden tigers that were so realistically painted that they appear as real tigers. The dog obviously was in a quandary. He was eager to eat the food but fear of the tigers kept him from touching it. Anandamayi Ma there upon remarked that the dog found himself in the position of most human beings who are held captive by their imaginary fears.  Fear is unreal and it appears only in imagination; abide in Self to stay fearless." -Sri Anandamavi Ma Support the show Beginning Aug 7, 2023 - 'GoOD Mornings with CurlyNikki' will host pre and post roll ads within the back catalogue.

As you sit there everything stops, absolutely stops. Your mind is so still and quiet that you can hear dust particles floating in the air. Suddenly you are falling, and falling, and falling. There is no ground below or sky overhead, just a crushing thunderous silence, racing faster and faster. You suddenly realize that it’s going to kill you, rip you limb from limb and explode your lungs into dust. There’s no way out, no possible means of survival. And so you do the only thing there is to do. Surrender.  All goes blank and empty, more empty than limitless space.  Prior to life and death, you blink out of (or is it into?) existence.

With our hearts open, the voice of the stillness inside us speaks clearly to trust this love, our true guide and employer. People who are tested in their work are being challenged in their belief in how present the silence is and how much it provides and cares for them. The struggle for survival is moved by the fear that we are all alone and the world is against us. The love in the quiet reminds us that we live in God’s midst, which is full of purpose and meaning and caring. It is through living in the monastery without walls that our worries about survival give way to trust in the silence. The sacred moments melt our fears, giving way to a practical life full of the joyous essence. We are each called to a work that gives fulfillment. Fulfilling work separate from a life full of silence is not possible. We are called to work for the silence, in the silence, with the silence, and feel the love of the silence working through us." -Dr. Bruce Davis,  Monastery Without Walls: Daily Life in the Silence The deeper the self realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.

Do not believe that you can either bring about the flow of God or prevent its flow. It is already full and complete within your being, awaiting your recognition of your fullness in Christ. Though your sins be scarlet, you are white as snow. Only do not go back; do not sin again; do not go back to the belief of a sense of separation from God. Do not go back to seeking your good from outside because after you have learned that the kingdom of God is within you and that you must let it flow up from the within to the without, if you then again go seeking it without, you create a deeper sense of separation than you ever had before. Do not do it! Do not go back! Do not go back! "Go, and sin no more." Do not go back to being hurt because somebody is not doing for you what you think he should: forgiving you, co-operating with you, or recognizing your virtues. Do not go back to that! Loose him! Forgive him and let him go! You are alone with your God. You are alone in your God-being.

It does not come to you by your striving, by your efforts, by your thought-taking: it comes to you from the depths of your being, in stillness, in quietness, and in confidence. You are not to try to achieve a healing. You are to be still and let the still small voice take over. You are to let the Spirit descend upon you. Rest. Rest, right now, in the midst of the disease, lack, discord, or inharmony that is disturbing you. Rest; relax! "My grace is sufficient for thee. I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

I was in Norway - don't remember which church in Norway - and then after the lecture boys and girls gathered around me and said "I like your lecture" and I say "What did you like about the lecture?" "And he said, "You said that life is bliss, and we heard in church that life is misfortune and you must suffer." "And we're afraid to go to church because we're sad to hear that life suffers, and you have to suffer." I said life is happiness. You just have to enjoy it. But I told you how to enjoy. If you are not connected to the creative intelligence, which is within you, you will suffer. I said the teaching of the church is not that you must suffer, but the teaching of the Church is that if you don't study the kingdom of heaven within you will surely suffer. (laugh) So better research the kingdom of heaven within then tell the church people that they are right and now start enjoying life. I said the doctrine is fine but you have to understand the doctrine. If you don't know the kingdom of heaven, you shall suffer. Many young boys and girls started meditation and became happy. Just a message that life is bliss and there is no need for suffering. This information is just so uplifting……. the kingdom of heaven within." -Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Audio, 1964 "I am using words just to create silent gaps.  The words are secondary; the silences between those words are primary. This is simply a device to give you a glimpse of meditation. And once you know that it is possible for you, you have traveled fare in the direction of your own being."  -Osho  "Being "in the gap- can be disorienting + even scary.  Nothing to hold on to, no sense of direction, not even a hint of what choices possibilities might lie ahead.  But it was just this state of pure potential that existed before the universe was created.  Relax into the no-thingness; fall into this silence between the words.. watch the gap between the outgoing and incoming breathing, and treasure each empty moment of the experience.  Something sacred is about to be born.  -Osho  "The river that flows in you also flows in me." -Kabir

"Am I here, or is He here?" "What is 'here'?'  Love.

Prayer is the remembrance of the Divine Name. The Kingdom is come, the Will is done, when the Name is remembered." -Jay Matthews via Quora  "When God wishes to help, He lets us weep.  Wherever water flows life nourishes.  Wherever tears fall, Divine mercy is shown." -Rumi "Nothing can make you happy until Nothing can make you happy." -Jeff Foster  "The Light of God surrounds you, The Love of God enfolds you, The Power of God protects you, The presence of God watches over you, Where ever you are God is, And all is well." -Ray Rarmilo via FB "I am pleased with you, My Child.  Allow yourself to become fully aware of My pleasure shining upon you. You don't have to perform well in order to receive My Love. In fact, a performance focus will pull you away from Me, toward some sort of Pharisaism. This can be a subtle form of idolatry: worshiping your own good works. It can also be a source of deep discouragement when your works don't measure up to your expectations.Shift your focus from your performance to My radiant Presence. The Light of My Love shines on you continually, regardless of your feelings or behavior. Your responsibility is to be receptive to this unconditional Love.  Thankfulness and trust are your primary receptors. Thank Me for everything; trust in Me at all times. These simple disciplines will keep you open to My loving Presence. - @jesuscalling.daily via IG  "Where we see waves we have a God who makes highways. Where we see dead ends, we have a God who makes a Red Sea Road. The brave trust Him unwaveringly and know that it's okay if things feel kinda unsteady when your heart's fixed on Him because: Faith feels like waves. And your heart takes a deep breath, smiles wide, takes its own wild leap of faith and believes: The brave ignore waves." -Ann Voskamp "I  was a black ant, on a black stone, on a dark night, but God has found me." -Sufi Proverb

Affirm: I Am a Star #GMweekends

What sound does a Star make? Ask yourself this question and listen to the silence that follows. Every time you're noticing thoughts today, pause, and come back Here. To the Scintillating-Silence. Hear your Light. Feel your Light. When you dissolve thoughts in this Light, you're dissolving the problem. Whatever it was you were thinking about is also clearing-- the sky of your mind is clearing, revealing the twinkling Star, the Sun, that you are, that I Am.    With you in and AS the Shining, Nik [email protected] p.s.  How I weathered the (inner and outer) storm- 1. Prioritized meditation and silent sitting  2. Limited access to me- reduced meetings, phone calls, text messages, excessive news watching, and went inside myself ("Worldly people go outwards but you go inwards like the tortoise withdrawing in his shell." - Neem Karoli Baba) 3. Whenever fear or doubt would arise, I'd immediately retreat if I could, to hear God's voice, the voice of Silence, over my own.  4. Trusted that everything would be okay no matter what, and that whether the storm appeared to hit our home or not, the practice, the work was the same-- to open my heart.  5. Smiled and help others find theirs. “My challenge to you as fellow pilgrims on the journey, is to cultivate the stability of living on two planes of consciousness simultaneously—as Christ said, ‘In the world but not of the world,’ to be fully passionately involved in life and also be totally equanimous and centered. This is not an either/or, it’s a both/and.”   - Ram Dass Support the show: ▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings _________________________________ Today's Quotes:  "As the depth of Love increases, the intensity of fear slowly decreases." -Amma "Pray to God for the power to remain aware of the Self in all conditions and circumstances." -Anandamayi Ma "When you go within yourself-- I don't care what the trouble is-- and Christ arises, awakens, it says to the storm within you, 'Peace, Be Still,' and there is a great Calm.

How I Get Through My Dark Nights #GMweekends

SEASON 3 begins Aug 7!!! First, I remember that it doesn't matter what the body is feeling or what the mind is thinking-- I Am Love and Love is unfolding where I Am.  Then, I wait to feel this Love.  And because I'm now feeling Love, I'm no longer matching the energy of the moment.  I'm not generating a false or fake joy, but turning back toward the inner Light, the subtle Joy, the Love that IS.  And I keep feeling the Light, holding this Love, through the situation, through the anxiety, through the worry... until it's seen that only the Light is real.  The eyes see the appearance but I'm no longer judging by the appearance.  I'm no longer fooled by it.  I'm seeing it... but I'm feeling Love at the same time.  And I know that Only Love is Here. As you move through your dark nights, it's important to remember that you aren't seeking God. You aren't seeking the Light.  You don't want Freedom or happiness or Love.   YOU ARE THAT.  You want them because of the false perception that you think you are separate from That, from God.  Freedom is the essence of who you are.  Relax, recognize, and stay feeling this Truth, inside.  And this Truth becomes your outer circumstances. "He is a real man who does not let go his hold on the Self-state while he is attending to whatever problems come of their own accord and without desire." - Ramana Maharshi, Padamalai pg. 250 "Self-knowledge, or knowledge of Truth is not had by resorting to teachers, scriptures, or good deeds.  It is attained only by means of enquiry inspired by those who have awareness of the inner Light.  One's inner Light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner Light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia.  Whatever sorrows there may be that seem to be difficult to overcome are easily crossed over with the help of the boat of wisdom (the inner Light).  He who is devoid of this wisdom is bothered even by minor difficulties.  The effort and the energy that are directed by the people in worldly activities should first be directed in the gaining of this wisdom.  Wisdom or the inner Light is like the legendary precious stone which bestows on its owner whatever he wishes to have." - The Yoga Vasistha Rhonda Ross' poem mentioned in this episode.  Support the show Beginning Aug 7, 2023 - 'GoOD Mornings with CurlyNikki' will host pre and post roll ads within the back catalogue.

I Am Risen #GMfaves

An emotion only lasts 90 seconds, and if you can wake up during those 90 seconds and remember, 'I'm not upset... I'm aware of this upset, I'm aware of this emotion, I'm aware of this wave, conscious breathing is my anchor', then that'll be the beginning. A new way to live in the world. Rumi said, 'absorbed in this world you've made it your burden. Rise above this world, there's another vision." Every time you breathe and feel your way through an emotion, you have risen.

'Whatever you ask in My Name, will be given to you.' #GMfaves

Whatever you ask in Love's Name (while feeling Love, feeling Love while the words come from that Love, addressing that Love, like you're speaking directly to that inner experience of felt-Love), will be given to you. Read that again. That's how I pray. Sometimes I ask that Love for what I want. But mostly I just listen to It... And It gives me what It wants. This Silence that is everything.

Make it happen. Shock everyone."- @Raghunathyogi via IG"Stop thinking in terms of a God who will do something for a person. There is no such thing. There is no such thing as a God who will heal me or you or your patient or your student. That is going back to paganism. God is the impersonal life of all being, but God is spirit, and so your entire consciousness must be on the nature of the kingdom of God: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, the nature of spiritual grace, the nature of the gift of God. Then when you are absent from the body, when you are absent from taking any thought about the externalized forms, “the bridegroom cometh.” The eternal mistake is trying to connect a spiritual God with a material universe when “My kingdom is not of this world.” Do not try to make a spiritual God maintain a human body or a human home or a human purse or a human business, and in the moment ye “think not” about persons, things or conditions, and continue to abide with me—continue to abide in the Word—spiritual harmony comes and it brings the out picturing of harmonious human conditions."-Goldsmith, Joel S..

Notice that when you're caught in a thought train,you're not aware of Love.But when you become aware of Love, you're no longer caught.You see that you were never caught.You were never in the train...you were watching it.Watching this life unfold.Watching 'the more' unfold from Here,(w)here you're Reigning,and Resting.I Love you,[email protected]   p.s.

There may be some of you who are at a point in life where you feel like what you see is it. Like there is nothing past what you see now, but God says "there's more." Hang in there and keep seeking God because what you see now isn't all that there is or will be, there's more!!

The Foundation for All Abundance #GMweekends

"Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance."-Eckhart TolleCeaselessly acknowledging God by feeling Love, and knowing this Love as the source of 'the good that is already in your life', is the foundation for all abundance. Today we practice remembering that this feeling of God, our Joy is the foreground of our experience, not the background.  We eat joyfully, drive joyfully, breathe in Joy, walk in Joy... we do everything we normally do on a Sunday morning, but with conscious Joy.  We do all of it as if we  are existing  and moving in and through a Joy bubble... feeling this same Joy within and without.  The more we remember to feel this all-pervasive Joy, the more our life changes. The instant you feel Joy is the instant the changes begin.“Whoever works for God, his work will be done by itself.”-Neem Karoli Baba aka  Maharajji "For one who sees Me everywhere, and everything in Me; I am never lost to Him, and he is never lost to Me."-Sri Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)   "Wherever you concentrate, and on whatever centre, there must be a you to concentrate, and that is what you must concentrate on."-Ramana Maharshi"A fully Krishna (God) Conscious person, although situated in this material world, does not see anything but Krishna."-Unknown*Krishna is the God of Love in Hinduism"I Am so often not recognized. Life is a thing so taken for granted. Blessed art thou that thou dost love, recognize, and adore the Power indwelling.  For I blend with your body, I thrill through your veins, I think through your mind, and love through your heart center, even as I am the One who thrills through every other being of My creation...This is your lesson for the day.

How to Let Go of Resentments and Be Love #GMweekends

Pause in the midst of a familiar train of thought about who or what is bothering you.  Scan your body.  Let go of the tension you find. Letting go of the tension on the inside is the healing.  You'll begin to experience a constant, conscious Peace inside, and harmony outside until you see that there is no inside and outside. Only Peace. Only Harmony, Only this Love.REMEMBER: Feeling Love is the 'let go'.  When you keep feeling Love, you keep letting go into Love. And when only Love is left, what appears can only be in the image of that Love.  You realize life is really GoOD.  I Love you,[email protected] the show!:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings_________________________________Today's Quotes:"Tonight, give thanks to those who have done you wrong.

I Am Nothing But God #GMfaves

Who is with you right now? Who did you forget is looking out through your eyes with you?  Experiencing your life with you?  When you feel them, you're also feeling your Self, and you're also feeling GoOD. There's only One and It can't go anywhere."The day my mother died, I wrote in my journal, "A serious misfortune of my life has arrived." I suffered for more than one year after the passing away of my mother. But one night, in the highlands of Vietnam, I was sleeping in the hut in my hermitage. I dreamed of my mother. I saw myself sitting with her, and we were having a wonderful talk. She looked young and beautiful, her hair flowing down. It was so pleasant to sit there and talk to her as if she had never died. When I woke up, it was about two in the morning, and I felt very strongly that I had never lost my mother. The impression that my mother was still with me was very clear. I understood then that the idea of having lost my mother was just an idea. It was obvious in that moment that my mother is always alive in me.I opened the door and went outside. The entire hillside was bathed in moonlight. It was a hill covered with tea plants, and my hut was set behind the temple halfway up. Walking slowly in the moonlight through the rows of tea plants, I noticed my mother was still with me. She was the moonlight caressing me as she had done so often, very tender, very sweet... wonderful! Each time my feet touched the earth I knew my mother was there with me. I knew this body was not mine but a living continuation of my mother and my father and my grandparents and great-grandparents. Of all my ancestors. Those feet that I saw as "my" feet were actually "our" feet. Together my mother and I were leaving footprints in the damp soil.From that moment on, the idea that I had lost my mother no longer existed. All I had to do was look at the palm of my hand, feel the breeze on my face or the earth under my feet to remember that my mother is always with me, available at any time."-Thich Nhat Hanh I Love you,[email protected] the show:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmorningsBonus Quote:"More of Christ, less of me.More Joy.

God’s part is done. Thank you, God, that this principle is and has been available throughout all time. Now show me what I must do in order to avail myself of this principle, this love, this life, this immortal body.” When we have reached that state of readiness, we have begun traveling the road which leads to spiritual consciousness."-Goldsmith, Joel S.. Practicing the Presence (pp. 20-21). Acropolis Books, Inc."The letter of truth is made up of statements, quotations, and words, none of which, alone, is power. The only power is God Itself. It is very much as if the shades on the windows were drawn, and we sat all afternoon talking about sunlight: what it is, what it will do, and how to avail ourselves of it. Then, after several hours, someone very skeptically remarked, “But, it’s still dark here. After all this talking about light, it is still dark.” Yes, it is still dark, and dark it will remain until we roll up the shades. So it is that we can talk about truth; we can read truth; we can study truth; we can hear about truth and never once feel the light, never once feel the presence and power of God, unless and until we take the final step of opening consciousness to the very presence of God. When truth comes to our conscious awareness from within our own being, we have gone from the letter to the Spirit. That is the most important phase of the activity of truth in consciousness."-Goldsmith, Joel S.. Practicing the Presence (pp. 20-21). Acropolis Books, Inc.Support the show

Dick Gregory said, "When we are born, we have one thing to do.  All raindrops have one job... to work its way back Home to the river, to the stream, to the ocean. When you come here, the only thing you have to do is work your way back Home."But wait-- while that raindrop was making its way back home, it was already, always water! It was water while it was appearing as the cloud, it was water as it fell to the ground, it was water as it mixed with mud, it was water as it merged with The Water, The Ocean.  It was water all along the journey.  It didn't need to meditate to become water. It didn't have to pray, practice, or fast to become water.  It just had to realize 'I Am Water'... and feel the presence of it Self.  Remembering that you're God while appearing to be human, will make the journey back Home a blessed one.I Love you,[email protected]**********************Come sit with Me.Chant with Me.Pray for the continuous awareness of Love with Me,so that you may begin to see what you Feel,and trust what you See.This is a time to hang out in the Heart together, as One!Date: July 11Time: 7pm ETWhere: https://crowdcast.io/c/u385bopsqnpcCost: Included with Patreon membership! _________________________________________Today's Quotes:"It's time to return Home to yourself and never leave.

Time Is Never Lost – It is Rearranged #GMweekends

Every time you feel Peace, you're free.Every time you feel Peace, maya, the illusion, can't see you.Your old triggers can't find you.Your old karmas can't find you.You become invisible to them.Because you're so BRIGHT ...when you're like This."You blind everyone,even yourself.

Negative Thoughts: How to Stop Them #GMweekends

A meditation to help you IMMEDIATELY surrender negative thoughts. It's useful not just during 'formal' meditation, but in every moment you find yourself fearful or worried.   You shift from being aware of being 'you', to being aware AS the Christ Light that you truly are.  You shift out of your mind, and into the mind that was in Christ.  Into the no-mind of the Buddha.  How does that mind sound?  Is it thinking about your troubles, your past, your future? Or is It silent... steady?  How does It feel?   Stay (t)here.   I Love you,[email protected] the show!▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings_________________________________Today's Quotes: "Constantly have this mind among yourselves which was in Christ Jesus."-Philippians 2:5-11"Just as a lamp in a windless place does not flicker, so the disciplined mind of a yogi remains steady in meditation on the Self."-Bhagavad Gita "People come to me to ask for blessings, they don't understand the knowledge that one is not the body, but the consciousness within, is the blessing."-Nisargadatta Maharaj "Having realized that I am with, and yet beyond the world, I became free from all desire and fear. I did not reason out that I should be free, I found myself free, unexpectedly, without the least effort.  Spontaneity became a way of life, the real became natural and the natural became real.

All Power is Within You #GMweekends

"Since the Kingdom of God is within me, all power is within me." - Joel Goldsmith (Invisible Supply)Bonus Quote:"Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time.  In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God. Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, “protective” clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the “right” people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers.All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. They are songs of praise to the ego. Do not put your faith in the worthless. It will not sustain you.Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances. - ACIM Lesson 50Today's Practice:Every time you notice worry thoughts today, let go of them by immediately remembering the mantra, "all power is within me", allowing the words to guide you back to the Peace, the Love, Power, Itself. Use this mantra to help you FEEL through to the Truth of every moment.  Only Love is here.  There can't be a problem AND Love.  There are no problems in the Kingdom.  There's only God, only Love, only the One.  Relax your shoulders as you're reading these words and know that you are the Kingdom.  You are safe. All is well.  Bonus Practice:Take out a cute notebook and pen and write down everything in your life that is not power.    Keep adding to that list until you can see and know and FEEL that Love is the only Power and that all seeming other powers dissolve in the presence of this Love.  Love is truly all we need.

Don't Be the Worker, Be the Watcher #GMfaves

Knowing that only God exists is the deepest rest possible #GMweekend

A short and powerful meditation on the 'I' that you are, and how knowing It, is the deepest, most regenerative rest possible.  When you know that only It is here, there's nothing left to think or worry about because whatever you're thinking or worrying about, isn't there... where it appears to be Love is. Bliss is.  The Bliss that you're sitting in right now.  The spacious and loving 'I' that you'll be walking through later. Feel This and be free.And here's a bonus activity from Wayne Dyer:"Think of the five words -- "I am that I am." In your mind, place a comma after the word "that." Let "that" represent for you what you would like to manifest, or become as a person. I can't stress this enough -- write down on paper precisely what that represents for you. Whatever constitutes your wish, write it down and in your mind, call it "that." For example, "that" could mean your perfect health or abundance or a specific job or a happy, loving partnership. Write it down and be specific. And as you close your eyes in meditation, let your inner mantra be "I am that." For example, "I am perfect health," "I am abundance," "I am in possession of the job I seek."   You take it a step further and let 'that' be... THAT... the All  that is being everything and nothing.  And then let THAT become what It's destined to be. That's trust. Surrender.I Love you,[email protected] support the show!:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings_______________________Today's Quotes:    "Who am I ?Feel your realityin the stillness, in the quietness, where there is no mind, no thought, no words, who are you then?You just are. I Am. I Am. I Am not this. I Am not that. I Am. I Am that which has always been, I Am that which will always be, I Am That I Am. "-Robert Adams       "I  exist’ is the only permanent self-evident experience of everyone. Nothing else is so self-evident as ‘I am’. (…) So to do self-enquiry and be that ‘I am’ is the only thing to do. ‘I am’ is reality. I am this or that is unreal. I am is truth, another name for Self."-Ramana Maharshi "Deep rest is bliss, and bliss is the understanding that only God exists.  Knowing that only God exists is the deepest rest possible."-Ravi Shankar Support the show

Hardships Often Prepare Ordinary People for an Extraordinary Destiny. #GMfavorites

A quick review of different 'doors' or practices to keep you in Love this week, to get you through and beyond your hardships to the Go(o)d that awaits.The GoOD you deserve.The GoOD you ARE.The GoOD that IS.The only one I forgot to mention (that helped me TREMENDOUSLY) was:1. Notice when you're worrying about something2. Remember that you don't feel bad because what you're worrying about is true (or will come true), you feel bad because it's NOT TRUE. It's false. And that's the only reason you feel 'off'... because God doesn't agree with you on that subject.  When you and God differ on a topic, you get a sign. And that sign is 'worry', or 'fear'.3. Feel the relief in that remembrance and feel Go(o)d again.  Now you and God agree!4. And watch what happens :)Finally, a seed to be planted-“Your own concepts have created "walls" and so you need a "door."

The Secret to Fulfilling Your Deepest Desire #GMweekends

I Love you and I'm with you,NikSupport the show!▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmorningsToday's Quotes:"Books and learning, yoga and meditation and illumination-- all are but dust compared with Love." - Vivekananda "Friend, if you've never really met the Secret One, what is the source of your self-confidence?Stop all this flirtation using words. Love does not happen with words. Don't lie to yourself about the holy books and what they say. The love I talk of is not in the books. Who has wanted it has it. " - Kabir"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." - Albert Einstein"As Namdev, the great 13th-century poet-saint, wrote, he had perfect knowledge of the Vedas (ancient Indian scriptures) and all of the schools of Indian philosophy; he had accomplished the goal of the yogis; he had himself experienced the joy of merging in the formless God; but he’d transcended all of these experiences through the grace of the saints, to find that “the secret is the Lord’s Love.” - Krishna Das, Chants of a Lifetime "The effort through mental means to become spiritual is wasted effort. The attempt to understand spiritual things with the five senses or the intellect is useless. Developing a sense of receptivity; learning to silence the senses and gaining the ability to listen for “the still, small voice” – this is the Way. Human thoughts – even good ones – will not help."-Joel Goldsmith, Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture Today's Practice:Fulfilled prayer happens when you are FILLED FULLY... fully feeling God's Love where you are.  Don't pray for happiness or peace.  Don't pray for dream solutions and dream stuff.  Drop everything and you'll find only Love.  Drop even good thoughts and words and you'll find only God.  And then God will fulfill Itself. I Love you, [email protected] the show

The God Who Stays #GMfaves

Simply thinking, 'the Presence goes before me’,  is not enough.You have to listen for that Presence,feel for It.In the feeling of It, It has already 'gone before you to make the crooked places straight',It's healing what's behind you,and It's where and what you are presently, performing miracles.When you stay with Him.He stays with you.In you.As you.Consciously.I Love you,[email protected] the show!▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmorningsToday's Quotes:    “God is compassion. He is waiting at the door of every heart. He is an uninvited guest everywhere, because whether you call Him or not, He is there. Whether you are a believer or a nonbeliever, He is within you uninvited. Behind every form, behind everything, God is hiding. He beautifies things and makes them what they are. He is the hidden formula of life. But He won’t reveal Himself to you. You won’t feel Him unless you call Him. Prayer is the invitation. You must invoke Him through prayer and meditation. Chanting, singing and repeating the mantra are invitations, asking God to reveal Himself.”-Amma "The Presence does go before you, and It “makes the crooked places straight”—if you have the conscious awareness of the Presence. There are persons all over the world declaring, “The Presence goes before me,” and It does not do a single thing for them. No, no, the Presence does not go before you just because you declare some words, nor is God consciously present with you just because you declare It.God is an experience. God must be experienced, and we experience God through our meditation. I am not saying meditation is the only way to have the experience. There are people on earth who have never meditated who have a conscious awareness of the presence of God all the time. But those who have not had the experience of the presence of God have not lived, and if they have not experienced the presence of God, it is because they have not specifically known the truth and then gone to the source where God is to be found.Do you understand now what I mean when I point out there must be discipline and a declaration or statement of truth, a realization of truth, and yet, in the same breath, I say that when you get to the point of prayer or treatment, you do not need words or thoughts? Let this be clear to you. Do not hesitate about it, because it is very important."-Joel S. Goldsmith: The Only Freedom. Chapter Six; The Discipline of Knowing The Truth; Practice Is Essential; Kindle: location pp 99"We've been together for a while nowWe're growing stronger everyday nowIt feels so good and there's no doubtI will stay with you as each morning brings the sunriseAnd the flowers bloom in springtimeOn my love you can relyAnd I'll stay with youOh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downsOh I'll stay with you when no one else is aroundAnd when the dark clouds ariseI will stay by your sideI know we'll be alrightI will stay with you."-John Legend, Stay With You"The God Who Stays"-Matthew West "When you are faced with the Fact, thought does not operate."-J Krishnamurti, Meeting Life Support the show

This Holy Silence is God saying;"There is no problem...that mind that is so heavy? It isn't even there,because I'm there.I'm here.Hear Me.Listen to Me."And in that listening your shoulders come down,your breath deepens,lengthens,your stomach goes soft,your jaw relaxes,you become aware of the weight of your phone in your hand,and even though that face may not be smiling just yet,your Heart Is.And that's the 'upleveling'.I Love you,[email protected] content every week:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmorningsGo(o)d Mornings merch:▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings_______________________Today's Quotes:   "The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still."-ACIM"Become so still you can hear the blood flowing through your veins."-Mira"Now when an emotional upset starts, it may start out of a thought process, but then it starts to involve all of the body — the adrenaline and all kinds of chemical reactions. Then often, one of the ways out of it is to work with the body.  For example, running or movement. Taking a walk. Doing things which start to release the energy, the kind of chemical buildup. Because you get that kind of nervous energy when you are emotionally upset. Then there is meditation–quieting down and allowing yourself to see how lost you’ve gotten. I mean on the deeper devotional path, there is the offering of the emotion to God.  Saying, “Here, You take it.  I offer it to You.”  There is appreciating your humanity. “Yea, here I am. I’m human. I just lost it again.  Ah so!” There’s the Ah so — Right? “Okay. Once more. Boy, am I hung up.” These are all spiritual techniques. See, it’s the upleveling. It’s the ability to see it without denying it. Not saying, “I’m not really upset.” “I am upset. Far out. Here we are again.” It’s like talking with God and saying “Oh, look at how deliciously human I am.” Not to milk it.  Not to keep feeding it, but not to push it away. That’s the quickest way through. To acknowledge it, allow it, and then use body energy to keep working out the chemical stuff that’s built up and the tension in the body that’s been built up. And then get on with it and just keep letting go, letting go, letting go. Sometimes music does it. There are a lot of techniques that do it."-Ram Dass“God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one”-Rumi "Gain this consciousness of God’s presence and you have the whole secret of success in every walk of life....It is our conscious union with God which enables us to live without taking thought and makes possible a life of complete abundance – by Grace."-Goldsmith, Joel S., The Infinite Way (Kindle Locations 1081-1089).

Enter Into the Unknowing #GMfaves

That which sees the waves of unknowing and the waves of knowing, the waves of doubt, and the waves of clarity, is beyond both.That, you are.  Like kneeling over a disturbed lake,trying to see your reflection through the waves,you can see something,you can see a distortion,but as the waves calm down,as the lake goes still again,there you are.When the mind is still,like it is right now,more aware of silence than anything else,there you are(t)here, God is.I love you,[email protected] help me keep the show ad free + Get Merch!▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings_______________________Today's Quotes:   "When you feel pulled into two different directions,surrender into the not knowing. It's okay to not know what direction to go inwhen you feel this conflict.It's your heart teling you to release control, to make space and allow spirit to lead you through."-@JessicaDelmar_ via IG"I entered into unknowing and remained there, knowing nothing.This place transcends all thought. I had no idea where I was, but when I found myself there (without knowing where there was) I suddenly understood sublime things, ineffable things."-St John of the Cross     "This is what you are to do: lift your heart up to the Lord, with a gentle stirring of love desiring him for his own sake and not for his gifts. Center all your attention and desire on him and let this be the sole concern of your mind and heart. Do all in your power to forget everything else, keeping your thoughts and desires free from involvement with any of God's creatures or their affairs whether in general or particular. Perhaps this will seem like an irresponsible attitude, but I tell you, let them all be; pay no attention to them....And so diligently persevere until you feel the joy in it. For in the beginning it is usual to feel nothing but a kind of darkness about your mind, or as it were, a cloud of unknowing. You will seem to know nothing and to feel nothing except a naked intent toward God in the depths of your being. Try as you might, this darkness and this cloud will remain between you and your God. You will feel frustrated, for your mind will be unable to grasp him, and your heart will not relish the delight of his love. But learn to be at home in this darkness. Return to it as often as you can, letting your spirit cry out to him who you love. For if, in this life, you hope to feel and see God as he is in himself it must be within this darkness and this cloud. But if you strive to fix your love on him forgetting all else, which is the work of contemplation I have urged you to begin, I am confident that God in his goodness will bring you to a deep experience of himself."-Excerpt from 'The Cloud of Unknowing'Support the show

Clean Your Heart and God Will Move In #GMfaves

Watch your thoughts and watch yourself watching the thoughts.Watch your mantra, and watch yourself watching the mantra.Your mantra cleans up the inside,and because in the Kingdom there is no inside or outside,it cleans up what appears to be the outside for you, too.It cleans up your relationships,it cleans up your career,it cleans up how you relate to your children,it cleans up how you relate to your Self.But it all begins with how you relate to your thoughts in this moment.Assume responsibility for your practice, for your life,until you realize that the responsibility is God's.And that you do what you can, until Grace kicks in.Until the Holy Spirit flows in,and the blocks are cleared,and the path is open,and your success is established.I Love you,Nikp.s.

You Are Retiring From Your Past #GMfaves

It can be so subtle that you may not even notice it. Except for the feeling that something is off, something has changed.  What used to resonate and excite you may feel a bit duller. But this  is because your consciousness is expanding and you are being nudged-- there is more out there! So much more that will move your soul. Only you don't know where to look just yet.  And that is okay.  It is in the pause, where you are recalibrating. Coming back to your center. Quieting the noise...

May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favor #GMfaves

*I'm in the Holy Land this week, returning with new episodes on May 10th! I love you and I'm with you!*    Every time I remember that God is with me,I know the world is for me, from Me. “To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”- Lao TzuAffirm: 'God goes with me wherever I go", and feel into this meditation from 'A Course in Miracles': "Today’s idea will eventually overcome completely the sense of loneliness and abandonment all the separated ones experience. Depression is an inevitable consequence of separation. ³So are anxiety, worry, a deep sense of helplessness, misery, suffering and intense fear of loss.The separated ones have invented many “cures” for what they believe to be “the ills of the world.” But the one thing they do not do is to question the reality of the problem. Yet its effects cannot be cured because the problem is not real. The idea for today has the power to end all this foolishness forever. And foolishness it is, despite the serious and tragic forms it may take.Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the world. It will cure all sorrow and pain and fear and loss because it will heal the mind that thought these things were real, and suffered out of its allegiance to them.You can never be deprived of your perfect holiness because its Source goes with you wherever you go. You can never suffer because the Source of all joy goes with you wherever you go. You can never be alone because the Source of all life goes with you wherever you go. Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go.We understand that you do not believe all this. How could you, when the truth is hidden deep within, under a heavy cloud of insane thoughts, dense and obscuring, yet representing all you see? Today we will make our first real attempt to get past this dark and heavy cloud, and to go through it to the light beyond.There will be only one long practice period today. In the morning, as soon as you get up if possible, sit quietly for some three to five minutes, with your eyes closed. At the beginning of the practice period, repeat today’s idea very slowly. Then make no effort to think of anything. Try, instead, to get a sense of turning inward, past all the idle thoughts of the world. Try to enter very deeply into your own mind, keeping it clear of any thoughts that might divert your attention.From time to time, you may repeat the idea if you find it helpful. But most of all, try to sink down and inward, away from the world and all the foolish thoughts of the world. You are trying to reach past all these things. You are trying to leave appearances and approach reality.It is quite possible to reach God. In fact it is very easy, because it is the most natural thing in the world. You might even say it is the only natural thing in the world. The way will open, if you believe that it is possible. This exercise can bring very startling results even the first time it is attempted, and sooner or later it is always successful. But it will never fail completely, and instant success is possible.Throughout the day use today’s idea often, repeating it very slowly, preferably with eyes closed. Think of what you are saying; what the words mean. Concentrate on the holiness that they imply about you; on the unfailing companionship that is yours; on the complete protection that surrounds you.You can indeed afford to laugh at fear thoughts, remembering that God goes with you wherever you go."-ACIM, Lesson 41I Love you,[email protected] the show

If one is real the other must be false, for what is real denies its opposite. There is no choice in vision but this one.

On this one choice does all your world depend, for here have you established what you are, as flesh or spirit in your own belief. If you choose flesh, you never will escape the body as your own reality, for you have chosen that you want it so. But choose the spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more except to heal and comfort and to bless."-A Course in Miracles, Lesson 31"I am a voice throughout time, spoken by few, and unheard by many.

Just the slightest turn toward the inside is a very big thing. #GMfaves

It’s only up from here. Trust.I used to sing this song at church growing up— 'through it all, I learned to trust in Jesus, I learned to trust in God. Through it all, I learned to depend upon His word."His Word, which was in the beginning, and IS now;It's what you're hearing right now,this Loving-Silence IS His Word.And you're learning to listen for this vibrating Silence, through it all-- through all the noise,through all the challenges,like a rope, it's pulling you up and out of the chaos. You're learning to trust what's on the other end of that rope.Trusting that It's pulling you to safety,that It's pulling you to the recognition that you were never in a well of suffering.That there was no well,just the belief in one,the dream of one,just like the dream of 'you'.And you wake up back on the throne,you wake up back at His feet.I Love you, [email protected]_______________________Today's Quotes:"…going up on a Tuesday.” -Drake"Now we're talking about a different end of the world than the bible has meant to most people.

Once this is realized, there is no room for misgivings."-Maharajji "Whistle while you twerk." - The Yin Yang Twins "In this life, we learn how to flow with the river, and stop fighting with the rocks."-Lauren London "Flow of Grace." - Krishna Das "When we no longer search for the peace that the world can give, but seek only "my peace," the gates of consciousness open to admit the spiritual light which becomes the life of our being and our body. Many people desire spiritual power in order to enjoy more harmonious experiences. Their purpose in seeking God usually is to enjoy more and better earthly things, to catch larger fish in their nets bigger fish, better fish. But the basis of our work is to "leave your nets," to leave this search for more and better human good and open consciousness to the spiritual realities. Then the things which come to us in the outer world are the fruits of an inward grace. Grace can only be attained by a state of inner silence, a state of inner awareness and receptivity; therefore it is necessary for us to prepare ourselves for the experience of receiving that grace. This is the whole purpose of meditation."-Joel Goldsmith, "The Art of Meditation" (Chapter 2, The Purpose)Support the show

So Krsna is teaching. Krsna is so kind. He's personally teaching. That is, perform yajña. He's personally chanting, dancing, Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Personally, He's teaching us, "Perform this yajña you rascal, and you'll get everything. You'll get everything." Now, where is the proof? The proof is this Krsna consciousness movement. We are simply chanting Hare Krsna maha-mantra and spending millions of rupees. Simply. What we are doing? We are not doing any business. We have not many professional men.But why we are getting ..? We are spending eight hundred thousand rupees per month. And we have got food, we have got milk. We are feeding others also, bringing food.

"You were assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved."To show 'others' how to B R E A T H E.To show 'them' how you let God breathe you,back into Calm,back into Center,back into your Power,where you know "I AM" is the only Power.Where you know the only assignment is to remember Love.To trust in Love.And to watch It dissolve every mountain,knowing there never was a mountain, only Love.I Love you,Nik [email protected] help me keep the show ad free + Get Merch!▶▶https://www.patreon.com/goodmornings________________________________Today's Quotes: "The instrument is blessed."-Sri Ramakrishna "You were assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved"-Unknown via FB"Bliss comes only from ourself and It is most intense when we are free from thoughts and perceptions."-Ramana Maharshi "I'm like air, you can't see me but I'm everywhere."-Maharajji Support the show

Persisting in God's Love, Change is Here #GMfaves

Even if the world is not smiling back at you yet,you FEEL its smile,you FEEL the changes beneath the surface,you FEEL the Go(o)d behind the scene,pervading the scene,appearing AS the scene.You know the Secret.You're in on the Secret,and that's why you smile.Persisting in His Love,swaying,looking, and not letting the appearance of the world make you forget to feel His Love.   That's the real change. And only from here do you see the 'outer' one.

I AM the dimension where all karmic law is broken, shattered, never to raise its head again. Where I AM, even in the midst of the appearance of war, there is peace; in the midst of the appearance of lack there is abundance. Where I AM, there is no depression. Where I AM, there are no broken bones. Where I AM, there are no germs. Where I AM there is no death, because I AM Life Itself. Such a realm has existed before Time was invented by the mind of man. We are walking in a realm, a realm called I, a realm of Spirit which man calls God and this Spiritual Realm is waiting patiently, just beyond the periphery of every man's consciousness, waiting for him to expand, to open up. And that's the meaning of Rebirth.As your consciousness expands to become aware of this invisible kingdom around you, it enters into your consciousness; and its name is I. It is infinite. It is present. I stand here NOW, the perfect invisible Kingdom, waiting for anyone who has the vision, the understanding, the courage, the desire to serve truth instead of concept. And so we open up. We open out a way for that imprisoned splendor. And when you do, then you receive your signs very quickly, for I AM quick, sharp, powerful. The moment you turn to I, I rushes to you. And then you find power is not in the mind. Power is not in the sword. Power is not in the bomb. Power is not in the human planning and scheming. Power is simply in the receptivity to I. That's your new philosopher stone. I in the midst of you can do all thing
