+ I like I AM affirmations. When you say I AM, you are connecting with the All in All, the Source, the Creative Process, the Mystery, the Oneness, the Unity, the Way, the Truth, the Life.  I often say "I am awake, aware and connected." ... and I AM! ... and YOU ARE! ... WE ARE ... GOD IS ...

The Church of I AM (CIA!) offers some very wise sayings about this essential affirmation. Here's One: "Those wise ones who see that the consciousness within themselves is the same consciousness within all conscious beings, attain eternal peace." -- Katha Upanishad

+ Wisdom a la Carte offers "How to Keep Your Awareness: Seven Steps to Staying Alert and Engaged" by Patricia Lapidus.

+ Envy is the obstacle Joseph Naft confronts this week in his series on Obstacles on the Way. Excerpt: "The source of envy, as with greed, is our inner lack, the hole at our center that erupts into feelings of inadequacy and self-rejection. That hole can only be filled from within, by the spirit. And a prime road toward that consists of spiritual practice: presence, meditation, and contemplative prayer."

+ Spiritual Literacy Blog offers "Top 10 Reasons Why Mindfulness Is Cool" by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat.  It begins: "In his blog at PsychologyToday.com, Jonathan Kaplan reviews some mindfulness basics. He quotes Jon Kabat-Zinn who defined it as 'nonjudgmental awareness,' adding that 'mindfulness allows us to recognize our own thoughts, feelings and behaviors as they arise without getting stuck in our usual automatic reactions.'"

Thanks for posting this. I love oneness, but it can be a hard road to get there. Affirming in the right way does help.

Yes, LOA books, it is indeed hard but it is ultimately the only way and worth the effort.
