This is the simplest transition of all. In aligning ourselves with principles we can find peace joy and happiness and here is one simple way to do it:
By continually practicing the following exercise we will have found the truth …by shifting our focus from the drudgery of having to obey rules or instructions that don’t make any sense, to realizing they are there for our benefit.
We do this (the exercise) by asking one simple question: How does this rule or instruction serve what is the best in and for me?
We are now free to follow the rule or instruction for the sake of expedience and obedience …knowing that it’s for our better good; and as the answer to the question is provided, whether instantly given or gradually revealed – any law begins to make sense …IT IS THERE FOR OUR OWN BETTER GOOD …and we are free to align ourselves to it expediently in peace, joy and happiness, as opposed to obedience because we think we have to obey, “or else” – a rather common somewhat conscious practice in many a religion and family households.
Any time we sense resistance and rebellion welling up inside about having to obey …merely flip the switch from the down position of obedience to the up position of expedience because the law is of benefit to us.
The beauty of practicing committed obedience even when there is no convenience or, to hammer the point home with redundance, convenient expedience is that we are now living in the LAW of FREEDOM …and by following this law, we begin to notice that many laws don’t even apply to us and, therefore, can be ignored just as if they didn’t exist …because they no longer do …and all because of expedience instead of obedience.

A well-known personal development personality makes an argument which is somewhat laughable; as in all arguments …the whole TRUTH tends to be “lost.”
First, both sides of the argument are offered, apparently unconsciously, by this same individual:
“The source of everything is within you – you don’t need to rely on anything or anybody else, including me! It’s time to take off the blinders and truly recognize that there is no “higher power” but your own. This is the first and most important step toward freedom…”
Sounds pretty convincing doesn’t it? This, the theme of her “page one,” …and the argument she poses is not without some validity. As with everything else in our crazy, 3rd dimension “reality,” however, it can be anywhere from 5% to 95% true.
Well, the truth of the foregoing depends upon an individual’s point of view; but let’s look at her “page two” which begins with this thought:
“Let’s take a second to fully understand how the law of attraction really works. The first stage of creation is thought. Before anything manifests into physical reality, there is always a concept, visualization or idea that is given energy through our thoughts. The Universe responds to the kind of energy you are giving off. It does not discriminate between good or bad – whatever the strongest vibration is, is what receives the focus.”
This sounds pretty convincing as well, does it not? Wait a minute …who/what is this “Universe” which responds to this “no greater power than your own” she posed on page one? In other words, what she seems to be saying, from my point of view, is that if we want to understand what she says we need to “fully understand,” then we had better make sure that this “no higher power but your own” is aligned with a power that is, according to her own words, greater than our own …and that is this Universe she mentions.
The fact is, again, from my perspective, she is makes a great point on the next page about how allowing negative emotions such as guilt, anger, fear, etc, to rule us we can sidetrack ourselves from being the creative beings we were designed to be. So then, if her point is so great as I’m saying, why, then, am I focusing on her own argument she is unconsciously making?
The answer to the foregoing question is quite simple and, again, from my perspective. So many purveyors of personal development and, from my point of view, she is one of the better ones, talk about “all the power you need is within you …and that it is the only power you need.” I’m not arguing against that position, what I’m trying to point out here, is that this particular writer I’m quoting is making the argument against her own position UNCONSCIOUSLY.
What Mark/Ryan and Doug/Brad have discovered for us …and are sharing with those who are open to hearing it, has to do with BOTH positions being true …and one way to harness BOTH is through something we introduced via the Brad Cullen book, Integration of the Mind © 2014 SHS Publishing Vancouver, Canada and the non-profit organization it spawned called, YOU WITHOUT LIMITS, through which we provide free small group workshops LIVE, either on-line or in-person.

What now? I just asked and was instructed to write the following: The point for me is to bring the conscious part of the mind of this body-bag I occupy under the control of the infinitely more powerful other-than-conscious part which I refer to as the super-conscious …that part which is connected to the INFINITE MIND, by whatever other term or name (period).
I refer to this part of “my” mind as MEGA-me because it works out the essential details of my life in their entirety, under the control of our SPIRIT-PARENT, again, by whatever other title or name and which revealed HER/HIM/IT- self as …I AM the very same entity which was revealed to that famous Jew, Moses, as the voice in a burning bush in the middle of the desert.
This is the same I AM which spoke through the mouth of Jesus; the very same I AM which caused the Angel Gabriel to visit and dictate the Qur’an to that famous Arab, Muhammad; the very same I AM which was the underlying spiritual impetus which brought about the necessary changes which have brought us to this point in the history of mankind.
MEGA-me keeps this body-bag I occupy in perfect health, with the proper amount of exercise and nutrition to have it breathing and functioning at the optimal balance so as not to be an obstacle to living in the presence and power of I AM.
Before this body-bag I occupy was in existence, I AM. Before Jesus, Moses and Muhammad and the others came into existence, I AM.
If you are reading this right now, and will release all judgment and every preconceived idea you have been taught by whatever religious group or culture you have adopted, you are of the same identity, yes, I AM.
The processes that have brought you to this point in your journey are for you.
The only part of the process that has brought me to this point and which I AM in me has to share are the words I was given to speak continuously as a means to bring the conscious part of the mind contained in this body-bag under the control of MEGA-me which is under the control of I AM:
“I AM in and of the will of God; YOUR presence and power are upon me. I have and want nothing else and no other thought or feeling shall have a permanent place in me …I AM!”
There are many who have gone before you and me for whom the spiritual impetus of their existence was I AM and if we get caught up in revering their physical manifestation, their human expression–appearance, as objects of religious worship …WE MISS THE POINT!
Who am “I” to say such a thing? “I’m” not saying this …I AM, who lives within these body-bags we occupy, is saying it. If you are ready to take your place in this marvelous destiny of I AM, declare it, NOW!
If you are not ready, don’t impede your progress by blaspheming against this truth …simply allow the seed to be planted so that you will take your rightful place when the time comes you can fully accept that before there was this body-bag you occupy …I AM.
“I” have been given this post script …this is not the ending …this segment is only midway of what is still to come.
