We can’t stop others from being defensive by telling people not to be defensive.
But, we can choose not to be defensive even in the presence of people who are seemingly defensive.
When we are sure of what we are defensive about, that is righteousness.
But, when we begin to question our defensiveness and the surety of our defensiveness, that is clarity and the doorway to expansion, wisdom and compassion which includes the embrace of self and others.

When love is mutual and you and your partner
are surrendered to each other emotionally,
sex is uplifting and sacred.
But when communication in your relationship
becomes careless and shoddy,
when time is not taken for one-to-one intimacy,
your relationship becomes a shell
in which you both hide.
Energy and commitment disappear from your union,
and sex becomes an act of physical betrayal.
It is not surprising then that one or both of you
may look outside the relationship for satisfaction.
Infidelity is a symptom of your emotional disconnection
from each other.
Unfortunately, it involves another person in the dynamics
and makes it more difficult
for healing and reconciliation to take place.
- Paul Ferrini
When you refuse to move when you are supposed to
Life throws you situations just so you can move.
Really, it’s nothing personal.
It is just the way it works so that you could get moving along with Life, freely.
easier said than done
doesn’t mean it can’t be done
would you sit there
easier said than done
move towards being done?

We are made beautiful and wonderful.
Yet unconsciousness makes us feel otherwise.
But that does not,
take away what we are made of.

Both Christ and Anti-Christ
live within the mind of every man and woman.
Christ is the collective Spirit,
the force for love and joining.
Anti-Christ is the collective ego,
the force of fear and separation.
Christ liberates. Anti-Christ binds.
Christ trusts his brother and sets him free
to make mistakes and learn from them.
Anti-Christ distrust his brother’s motives,
seeks to influence his choice
and lives in constant fear of betrayal.
Christ offers salvation to all right now.
Anti-Christ preaches salvation only to a chosen few.
Christ preaches the message of divine love
and the potential of creating heaven on earth.
Anti-Christ preaches divine retribution,
the imminent end of the world,
and happiness only in the afterlife.
Christ is the voice of love.
Anti-Christ is the voice of fear.

A true Master is not one who always believe he is accurate about everything.
A true Master is one who sees and acknowledges the error within him, makes peace with it, and the world altogether.

Often, people are seeking to what or how much they can take from something, someone or a situation;
rather than what or how much they can offer to something, someone or a situation.
They say it is for a higher objective, a bigger picture.
They have failed to see what is in front of them.
