“Balance is so very important for people on the spiritual path. Many people I have observed on the path focus so intently on spiritual growth that they ignore the needs of their bodies; experience out of control emotions; and operate from the ego mind. We are here to ground the energy of Spirit into our body, emotions and mind as well as to evolve the soul.”

“Mastery is an inner process of transformation from the inside out. Your outer world is the external out-picturing of your internal thoughts, feelings and attitudes. If you want to change your outer world, you have to change your inner one first. There is no other way.”

“Don't Take on Other People's Problems! Human beings are inherently powerful Creators which means that we create stuff and attract stuff into our life to learn from every day. This is fine for without our stuff, we wouldn't grow. But when we get involved with another person's stuff, watch out! It often is very easy for us to adopt and claim another individual's stuff for our own.”

“A lot of people know that their lives don't function very well but they don't know what is wrong. If you fall into this category, buy a notebook that can fit into your coat or purse and jot down every thought that you have about yourself, said and unsaid, for one month. At the end of the month, read what you have jotted down. What most people find is that most of their negative thoughts fall into several categories, and these are the areas that they need to work with.”

“When people in a crisis learn that they create every aspect of their lives, they often recoil in shock and horror. Everything that we experience is created by ourselves but not necessarily by our conscious minds. Most of our life experiences are created unconsciously either by the subconscious mind or the super-conscious mind or soul. Part of the spiritual growth process involves taking conscious control over the areas of our lives that are on automatic pilot.”

“Each day I try to focus on three things. I try to see everything I experience as something that I created in order to grow spiritually from. I also try to see the Christ/Love/Light/Spirit within everyone. And I often ask myself, how can I serve the people I encounter each day. Living in the now is also important to me.”

“Mastery is largely about taking responsibility for and becoming more aware and conscious about every aspect of their lives. Part of the spiritual growth process involves taking conscious control over the areas of our lives that are on automatic pilot.”

“Mastery in many ways is the art of making good, wise and prudent choices. When masters don't like what they are creating externally, they look at and revise their internal choices. Masters know that they create their life and they take and assume responsibility for their life and co-creations, and choose a different reality when they don't like their current one.”

“Two of our greatest gifts are our time and energy and what we do with that time and energy is important. When we choose to focus our time and energy on personal and spiritual growth then the universe supports us in this endeavor via the Law of Attraction. Eventually as long as we maintain a strong focus on personal and spiritual growth, we develop a force field around us that magnetizes and energizes the process. The time and energy we dedicate to personal and spiritual growth becomes magnified a billion-fold by Spirit so that the process of personal and spiritual growth becomes effortless in many ways.”
