PLUS Doing Just a bit of Humbling
This has been nagging at me for several days and finally is screaming at me to be written . . .
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2nd Chronicles 7:14
Depending upon which historian we want to believe, this was written somewhere between 2500 and 5000 years ago to and for Jews and subject to various interpretation by different scholars as to somewhat minor details.
Bridging the first gap of somewhere between 500 to 3000 years B.C. (or, if you prefer, before the Christian era) to around 2000 years ago . . .
“Today, if you will hear his voice, says the Holy Spirit and humble yourselves not as in the rebellion . . .” written to those Jews who interpreted that Y’shua (or one of the several other Hebraic variations of the name many historians attribute to the anglicized “Jesus”) had come on the scene as a human being and fulfilled the Jewish prophesies of the Messiah …and adopted by many Gentile Christians (3rd and 4th chapters of the New Testament book Hebrews).
NOW, bridging the gap to the present day …many of us, whether A to Z, including, but not limited to Baha’i, Christian, Jew, Hindu, Muslim all the way to Zoroastrian believe we hear the voice of the Holy Spirit saying that we who call ourselves I AM are the “people called by My name” …and just for a bit of historical perspective, the same I AM who spoke to Moses out of a burning bush and said that this name I AM was the name Moses should tell the Children of Israel was the name to be used as a memorial for all generations forever …and an event notably cited by Muhammad in the Qur’an (as dictated by the angel Gabriel who was sent to Muhammad by I AM according to the traditions of Islam).
It was this same I AM according to a quote attributed to Jesus, “Before there was an Abraham, I AM,” which according to another quote attributed to Jesus were not his words, but rather I AM speaking through him.
Let’s ask a few questions: Is it possible that the modern version (today) of the rebellion referenced in Hebrews which speaks of the grumbling and resistance to the dictates of I AM in their trek out of Egypt and which led to wandering around in the desert for forty years – is the grumbling and arguing over whether the ancient texts are allegorical or historical fact …why can’t it be both? …or how about neither?
Is it possible that those of us who are speaking I AM are not saying it, but rather allowing I AM to say it through us, just as I AM spoke through Jesus? John 8:58 …it seems that the religious of many stripes want to pick up stones to throw at us for allowing I AM to speak through us …John 8:59
That’s it and if there is any doubt as to Brad Cullen’s position …I AM! May I suggest that, if it rankles you, you take it up with I AM …because it isn’t “I” that is saying it. Is all this based on allegory or historic fact? Neither, it is what I am hearing today and being instructed today to write …final question, does it matter?

I was awakened abruptly one morning, several days ago, hearing the word “premise.” To me the word meant a basic understanding …such as: some people have the premise that church attendance is a good thing.
Later that same day, I was writing something for a YOU WITHOUT LIMITS presentation in the Caribbean Island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis; and the word came back to me and that my life had been changed dramatically when I had adopted a particular premise.
This premise came from an insight I had received from putting three separate quotes attributed to Jesus, which I had read in a Greek New Testament, together: (1) “What you have heard me say and the things you have seen me do …anyone can do and say if they believe in me.” (2) “Nothing shall be impossible for any individual who believes enough.” (3) “The things you have seen me do and the words you have heard me speak were not mine. They are the works and words of the ONE who lives in me.”
How I wrote that for the presentation was: “What Jesus said about what he said was that he didn’t say it.” I told them that a new perspective about something could begin if they re-read those words several times until they hit them over the head.
What I’m saying here is that looking at (adopting the perspective of) all three quotes through the prism of (3) above, turned me into a worker of miracles because “I” was no longer trying to do anything. I was relying upon the same CREATIVE POWER upon which Jesus was relying and it wasn’t “his,” per se,’ nor is it “my” per se’ …I was freed from this trap of the ego-driven, “my” ministry; and it changed everything for me.
Some have called this personal ego-driven, self-interest ministry by anyone, “The Great Lie” …an interesting point of view!
That’s the premise. It was the catalyst that caused me to refuse to any longer stand behind a pulpit and say things to people who sat on pews listening to powerless men spout platitudes and wonder why they didn’t do or say anything that the ONE who spoke through Jesus had said all of us could and would do if we believed enough.
Believing enough isn’t to be worn as a badge of honor, sitting on a pew listening to another fellow, powerless human wearing the badge of “her” or “his” personal and powerless ministry; …believing enough means “simply” allowing the same I AM that spoke through Jesus (“before there was an Abraham, I AM”) to speak through YOU …and the beginning of operating in the presence and power of I AM is being open to I AM speaking and doing instead of “i” doing anything …first as a premise then actively desiring and pursuing it to happen …UNTIL it does.
You can either reject all this on the basis that it is blatantly imperious …or you can begin by simply accepting it as a different perspective and look at it that way and that your point of view is different …and that’s perfectly okay.
This, however, is the premise behind YOU WITHOUT LIMITS …small groups exploring ways to help one another go beyond former, self-imposed limiting beliefs.

YOU WITHOUT LIMITS
As for the actual method of working, like all fundamental things, it is simplicity itself. All you have to do is stop thinking consciously and ask for help from the more powerful part of the mind and the more POWERFUL MIND, by whatever other title or name, about anything and, instead, follow instructions. What could be simpler?
What if you are unable to “download” any instructions? The answer is the same, STOP THINKING WITH THE CONSCIOUS PART OF THE MIND, ask for help from the more powerful part of your mind and the more POWERFUL MIND and just show up trusting and knowing that even if you cannot distinguish between the two or as yet do not believe in a separate “more POWERFUL MIND” …things will unfold simply and perfectly; again, that’s it!
It makes no difference what you deeply desire; improved health, finances, relationships, overcoming or getting beyond a perceived obstacle, whatever it is, just stop thinking about it, and breathe in CREATIVE POWER (a verb, NOT a noun) that is all you have to do.
I did exactly this in preparation for writing this; I had just gone through a little exercise I was given about eighteen months ago, by a group of ten advisors, which helps me bring the conscious part of the mind of this body I occupy in alignment with this unnamed CREATIVE POWER and from which/who (or whom) the exercise came in the first place …along with an admonishment to stop passing judgment on ANYTHING …a tall order for me!
The reason I bring up this latter issue (passing judgment) is that many, by passing judgment or coming to negative conclusions (an act of the conscious part of the mind), about the turn Brad Cullen writings and their publisher, SHS Publishing, have taken over these past several months and thus created an obstacle to receiving any benefits they could have received.
To emphasize this point, some of those who have been the most vocal in their negative conclusions, apparently forget a commandment of the Leader they say they follow who said, “Don’t Judge” and who also provided a clear and loving warning of the consequences of failing to follow this edict …that is, being themselves in danger of judgment.
In fairness, without judging, some may have been following their Leader, who for whatever reason, wants to either protect them from us or protect us from them …we don’t claim to know which and that is part of the fun of being free from judging.
Does YOU WITHOUT LIMITS have any benefit to you? You can start the most important exercise right NOW. Ask! If you get a “yes” please visit www.youwithoutlimits.life …if you get a “no” you are being directed elsewhere …save us both a lot of challenging moments and go wherever you are being directed and we’ll stay on the path we’ve been given.
Now then, if you would like to take a look at this particular path to see if it might be beneficial in helping you design the life you want, unless you are already living EXACTLY as you are meant to be living, consider the following:
All skyscrapers, highway bridges and other major building projects were first constructed in the minds of the architects and engineers who sketched and designed them. All engines and other complex mechanical devices were first built in the minds of their inventors.
The point in reviewing this truth is that, when we decide to change our lives into what we want them to be; we can relatively easily do this …by first designing them in our minds with the conscious part of our minds in alignment with the more powerful part of our minds and beyond that to the more POWERFUL MIND.
In other words, if we think we are victims of circumstances this is exactly what we have designed our lives to be …by default!
We formed YOU WITHOUT LIMITS for the specific purpose of helping us remember that we really can be extraordinarily creative beings when we learn ways to overcome self-imposed limitations …and the truth is that ALL limitations are self-imposed. Don’t even try to believe this is true, just follow along and it becomes a reality without having to change anything except what we allow the minds of these human bodies we occupy to think and say (period).
To get this down where we live …in the past, before I began putting this truth into practice, I allowed thoughts and words to escape my mouth such as, “I’m just not able to do that, I wish I could, but I cannot.”
Where I had to stop this insidious “wishing” monster, in its tracks, was at the point of examination. I’ve learned to stop it with a question: “Is this something I really want to do?”
STOP! Get this point and you get everything …why on earth do you want to wish for something when you have the power at your fingertips to CREATE? I’M about to impart a truth that too few are able to get because of their religious programming. I’m going to quote something Jesus said; forget what your religious programming or anti-religious thought processes have messed you up with about who/what Jesus is or was. Repeat this quote out loud and listen carefully as they become YOUR words:
“I, of myself, can do nothing, it is not I who have done the works you’ve seen, neither are the words you’ve heard me speak, mine. You can do everything you have seen me do and the same words of SPIRIT can flow through you as they have through me.”
Note: I have long made a practice of NOT cluttering up what I’m given to write with references. If, however, you are of a mindset which insists upon chapter and verse, I’ll be most happy to provide it.
YOU WITHOUT LIMITS is simply YOU with the realization of your connection to a far more powerful part of the mind encased in the body you occupy; connected with others in a small group setting, experiencing an expanded collective human mind …AND BEST OF ALL, connected with the more POWERFUL MIND which is beyond the ability of humans to fully comprehend, let alone articulate properly.
An important thought to consider …when we first began designing machines by which to fly …we believed they had to be filled with gas or made of extremely light weight materials. The takeoff weight of a 747 is now between 750,000 to a million lbs. depending upon configuration.
