When you affirm your rightness in the universe, you cooperate with others easily and automatically as part of your nature. You, being yourself, help others be themselves. You are not jealous of talents you do not possess, and so you can openheartedly encourage them in others. Because you recognize your own uniqueness you will not need to dominate others, nor cringe before them.
You must begin to trust yourself some time. I suggest you do it now. If you do not then, you will forever be looking to others to prove your merit to you, and you will never be satisfied. You will always be asking others what to do, and at the same time resenting them. It will seem to you that their experience is legitimate and yours counterfeit. You will feel shortchanged.
You will find yourself exaggerating the negative aspects of your life and the positive sides of other people’s experiences. You are a multidimensional personality. Trust the miracle of your being. Make no divisions between the physical and the spiritual in your lifetimes, for the spiritual speaks with a physical voice and the corporeal body, is the creation of the spirit.
Do not place the words of gurus, ministers, priests, scientists, psychologists, friends – or my words – higher than the feelings of your own being. You can learn much from others, but the deepest knowledge must come from within yourself. Your consciousness is creating a reality that no other can experience. It is unique and untranslatable. It has its own meaning and follows its own paths of becoming.
You share an existence with others who are experiencing their own journeys in their own ways. Be kind to yourself and your companions.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“How you define yourself and the world around you, forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
In other words, we create our reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves, and the world around us.
If we do not consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If our beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create our reality, how can we afford not to question them?
The more we love, understand and appreciate ourselves, the better we treat ourselves, and the world.
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
Affirm what you believe!
