Ask: Your recent articles about death have not been very comforting...

Some of your answers about death lately have not been particularly comforting…would you tell someone who just lost a loved one that they will never see them again?
            I can see where the personal thought system (ego) in your mind would not find what I wrote about death to be comforting. It would like to be real and eternal and I stripped that idea away. Stripping away the personal thought system’s cherished wishes is what I do! I am a teacher of Truth, not a minister or therapist, so I do not teach to comfort personal selves. Instead, I teach minds the way to release themselves from guilt and fear so that they can be aware of Truth and be at peace. This indeed will make the personal thought system in your mind uncomfortable, but if you understand the forgiveness that I teach it will set you free.
“Undermining the ego's thought system must be perceived as painful, even though this is anything but true. Babies scream in rage if you take away a knife or scissors, although th…

Ask: What happens to the spirits/souls of psychopaths?

In the tri-union of mind, body, spirit, what happens to the spirits/souls of psychopaths? Those defined as “individuals who are often intelligent and highly charismatic, but display a chronic inability to feel guilt, remorse, or anxiety about any of their actions.”             My understanding is that a psychopath also cannot genuinely feel or display love, either. Yet, our essence is essentially the energy of love. Can you explain? – DL
            There are no souls or individual spirits. There is only one Truth (Spirit) and It is universal. It is the same in every seemingly-individual mind. It is all that is real and eternal in any mind. Everything else is false and falls away. The body, the mind, and Spirit (Truth) do not form a union. Mind is the aspect of Truth through which Truth knows Itself.  They are one and the same. The body and its thought system (ego/personal thought system) are ideas in the mind. They are a mistaken identity.  They are an illusion. They are completely ap…

Ask: "My holiness" isn't working...

I have a family member who's had a rough time of it for quite a while.  He got married, quickly had 2 children, then the marriage went sour and now he is dealing with a narcissistic ex-wife who seems determined to make his life a misery and a job that takes up most of his time. I get upset about the situation he's in and sometimes cry over his situation.  I think "There is nothing my holiness cannot do..." but it doesn't seem to work.  Then I get angry that this whole story is appearing and become impatient that he's not changing.  I'm furious with his ex-wife too. – SD
            It is your belief that what is appearing is real and true that is making you unhappy. If you are willing to be aware of your Holiness, or the Truth (God) within you, then this awareness will lift you out of your fixed belief in the world as reality. But this is not going to change the world. It will change your relationship to the world.             The universe of form is the …

Ask: It makes me sad to think I will never see my loved ones again...

If what you say about death is true it makes me sad to think that I will never see my loved ones again. This is how I have coped with their deaths… (December 7, 2012)
            What you are actually feeling is fear of lack of Love (God; Truth). True Love is your Being and is always within you. But because the personal thought system (ego) is the denial of your Being it teaches you to look outward for its version of “love” (attachment). One place it teaches you to look for love is in the specialness of others. When they pass away it tells you that you have lost love. To deal with your pain it then tells you that you can hope to find this love again after you “die”. As usual, it does not address the actual source of your pain: your perception that Love is outside of you. It also does not address your pain now. Instead it tells you to hope to find relief for your current pain in a future that never arrives. Is it really comforting to think that Love comes and goes with passing forms? D…
