SELF STUDY

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.

March 2020 — LOVE YOURSELF

By JIM GORDON & BRIAN YEAKEY

Monthly Focus ~

KISS ~ KEEP IT SIMPLE SOUL

You want to make it simple where it’s not a lot of work? Just love yourself.

Keep your meditations simple and keep your life simple – the simpler, the better. Realize that you are soul, you are not any of these other components.

 

Full Excerpt ~ Brian Yeakey

You want to make it simple where it’s not a lot of work? Just love yourself. 

All the stuff we’ve created that stands between us and God is simply because we’re not loving ourselves. As soon as you love yourself, it dissolves all the stuff and the door just swings wide open and God comes rushing in. That’s the simplicity of this Pathway and this journey.

So instead of trying to forgive everybody and everything and all the situations and circumstance in your life that is creating all your trauma and drama, just love yourself.

You love yourself; all that other will dissolve.

 

Full Excerpt ~ Jim Gordon

Keep your meditations simple and keep your life simple – the simpler, the better. Realize that you are soul, you are not any of these other components.

You know, it’s so funny, and I still go through this in my life today. When I think of myself, there’s so many different parts of myself that I can get caught up in and think of. And I have to ever, kind of, pull myself up and say, “No, I am soul,” until I can really, truly know, in that moment, “there I am. That’s me. Okay, that’s me. I am soul. am not all this other.”

Because it’s easy in this physical body– you go, “I.” And it’s like the mind, the emotions, it’s “I, I”.

No! I. I am the Loving. I am the soul. I am the Spirit. I am the Divine. And all these other things are just instruments of my experience.

It takes time to come to that. It’s a wonderful place and an interesting place to live in, I.

I learned it as a child – me, myself and I. Me and myself are these components here that are of the physical nature. I am the one living it. I am the Truth. I am the only component that really has Life, Love, Joy, Peace to it. Me and myself, they are just here to give me experience in the world and to understand myself better. But, ultimately, all that leads me back into the fulfillment of the I that I Am.
