How to Understand God (HUG)

The monthly focus is a written excerpt taken from one of Jim and Brian’s talks, with a link to listen to the entire talk. In holding to a one-pointed focus on Spirit, each month we post a new written excerpt by either Jim or Brian. The worldwide monthly focus on Spirit helps us collectively deepen our understanding of God.



Monthly Focus ~ 

There’s really no work other than to keep refocusing our attention back in the Loving. Even that wonderful acronym we have, that L-A-F, “LAF!” Love, Accept, and Forgive is just another tool to help us refocus our attention back in the Loving. That’s all it is. There’s no magic in these words or acronyms or any of it. The magic is you. It really is you, but you’ve got to focus into the truth of who you are to really wake up and know that through your experience.


Full Excerpt ~ Brian Yeakey

Look into those dark areas inside and that Light of who you are, which is that Loving that God is, automatically begins to go into those areas, into the judgments, the fear, the unworthiness, the whatever – just by looking.

Yes, you’ll feel uncomfortable for a moment because you’re going to be confronting that fear that is keeping you in separation. But, then remember fear is just darkness. What is darkness, but unknown. People say, “I want to get rid of my karma. I want to get it cleared, get liberated.”

Well, what’s karma? It’s unknown, dark, and fearful. You mean all I’ve got to do then is look at my karma and then I’ll get free? Yes, but you’ve got to keep looking until it is free. You don’t just look and turn away. That’s playing chicken – that’s right! Who’s more scared? 

And that’s fine, you’ll look a little at a time, look a little more and a little more because eventually, you’ll realize the fear really has no power over you. It’s just that you believed it did and you’ve given it power through your belief. Well, eventually you’ll realize that, and you’ll get comfortable then looking at your fear, looking at your unworthiness or whatever words that you would use to describe whatever that is going on inside of you. That’s all you have to do. 

Sure, you can go ahead and say, “I love you. I forgive you. I love myself. I forgive myself. I accept myself just the way I am.” Use all of that. But if the power is not in the words, it is not in those words, you are the power that you give those words. The words just are there to assist you in moving that Divine Living Loving Essence that you are into all of the experience. That’s all they are.

There’s no magic in any prayer, the LAF acronym or anything. All they are is projections or tools that the Light of Love that we are can use to shine our Divine Essence into all experience. That’s what’s really going on.


Monthly Focus “going Home work” ~

  2. Listen to the guided meditation by Brian Yeakey titled: LIVING YOUR TRUTH 03/10/2013  
  3. Journal daily: 

“Look into those dark areas inside,” and write down all the things that make you feel uncomfortable, fearful, and unworthy inside.

Now, the magic is you…but you’ve got to focus into the truth of who you are to really wake up and know that through your experience.” So, focus at the seat of the soul, and move into “that Divine Living Loving Essence that you are,” and bring that Light of Loving into those dark areas inside you.

Lastly, journal your experience!
