Is it for YOU?
Starting out with the appropriate question is the better way for US. When looking for better approaches to life rather than or, at least BEFORE listening to or buying personal development programs from success gurus or other external expert advice, take several DEEP breaths, get calm and ASK: IS THIS FOR ME?
I’m going to share what simply asking before I went to bed one night brought me upon awakening, which was BOTH the appropriate question AND the appropriate answer, FOR ME!
Is it for you? That is for you to determine, but here goes:
What is the number one priority? That, for me, IS the appropriate question! Followed by the appropriate answer, FOR ME, which was and is, seek first, listen, hear and follow; getting then follows automatically.
When I put my focus on getting and come seeking, listening and hearing to that end (getting) the answers will always be accompanied by interference, static and a garbled message.
Effort and discipline with the conscious part of the mind, when focused only upon the number one priority, creates the setup to get what is the better good for me, AUTOMATICALLY.
I heard, “Stop putting the cart in front of the horse.” Focus, INSTEAD, on the priority of putting the superconscious part of the mind of this body I occupy in the position of control. The reason, again, for me, is that for me it is confirmed that the superconscious part is ALWAYS receiving from I AM that, I AM. What anyone else gets is for them, I’m merely sharing.
I’m hearing, “Let your discipline and effort be applied only after receiving instructions from the Leader, not the conscious part of the mind. Use the conscious part of the mind to focus on putting the superconscious in charge, then listen, hear and follow with the conscious part with whatever effort and discipline is required to follow the Leader’s instructions and things are set up to flow automatically.
This all came as a result of my asking, “What is the appropriate question for me?” The appropriate question AND answer came AUTOMATICALLY! That’s the better way for me.

The Conscious Part of the Mind. . .
…makes it complicated, putting layers and layers of seeming inviolate laws and/or principles, call them what you will, which can be swept away quickly and easily when and if we are willing to let them go in favor of the TRUTH, which is interpreted differently by each of us and which no man or woman can effectively articulate.
The above paragraph when digested (I humbly suggest you read it over a few more times, because the TRUTH is hidden there) contains the WHOLE, SIMPLE TRUTH.
Each of the myriad branches of philosophy, religion and science are systems and each having its own particular and peculiar dogma purporting to be the truth or the pathway to the truth.
What makes things complicated is that each of the myriad systems contains a miniscule slice of the truth, the proponents of each proclaiming that their system is the only truth and refusing to acknowledge the others as having any part of the truth.
Meanwhile, God, the Universe, Great Spirit, etc, call HER/HIM/IT what you will sees and IS the WHOLE TRUTH and that is what is So Simple!
My peculiar dogma is that to fully understand what is being said here takes dialogue among participants in a small group. Would you care to participate?
If you are willing to accept, even as a remote possibility, that the foregoing may contain some small speck of the truth, then our small group, you and I, can get started.
Just click on reply and let’s have some dialogue so that I can be fed the truth as it comes through your filter and vice versa.
Let the magic of two different slices of truth seeping into one another’s being begin, who knows, it could grow into three, four or even a few more slices and thus beginning to see, in parts, that there is a WHOLE which cannot be seen, but can be revered and even accessed.

I’m not going to get into the entire e-mail exchange because it will take YOU off the track of YOU.
The man, informing me he was a pastor, wrote this after a member of his church, a woman, had told him that my book, Being Jesus, had impacted her thinking. He was reacting to the title and hadn’t read the book and, therefore, was missing the point which is explained in the introduction and repeated a few times throughout.
I suggested the man read the book and then comment. He replied, “I thank God there is a way out from the law of sin and death through Jesus Christ, (Romans, chapters 7 & 8) and not through you.”
I replied that there are myriad ways to interpret that particular passage and that I could only tell him how Jesus, who is alive in me, is telling me how to interpret it for me.
I continued telling him I was free to share that interpretation with him and would, if he wanted, if he would also promise to use it only as his introduction to inviting the living Jesus-the-Christ to live in him and tell him personally how it ought to be interpreted for him.
His response was to call me a “sheep stealer” and a “conman.” I never heard from the man again, but the memory apparently lingers, I just woke up from a dream – in which I was speaking to a church congregation making the same offer I had made to the man in the e-mail.
Jesus told me in the 1990s to stop accepting or attempting to prompt invitations to speak in churches. There might be a time in the future when it would be okay. There were several reasons for that, but he wanted me to be all things to all men and women, no matter what their religion, and I was to stop referring to myself as a Christian because the term meant too many different things to too many different people to communicate anything meaningful to anyone.
Therefore, the dream was a bit unsettling, to put it mildly. That was about an hour ago and it took me several minutes to shake off the fog of sleep and the unsettled feeling.
“What now?” I asked and got to write this and make the same offer no matter what you believe about Jesus or anything or anybody else, to answer any questions.
Get your answers directly from the Source, I AM a willing vessel to share, but I AM instructed to share only what is given to me for me.
Why get anything second hand when you can have your own burning bush experience? Then you can share what you are getting for you with me! I’d love to hear it.
