Greetings,
Through my studies with The Wonders I've become so much more aware of myself and how easy it can be, if I choose, to learn more about myself. Everytime I get angry with someone, or with something that someone else has done, I now look inside to what part of me would have done that too. The annoyances in life are signals to go deeper and ask myself what is it about that annoyance that I do to myself. I usually see that it's a part of myself that I've chosen to deny - at least up until then. Now I look for it in all my interactions. When someone is reluctant to speak to me, it's because a part of me is reluctant to speak. When someone is angry, it's because a part of me is angry too. When someone is denying a part of themself, I can now see how I too am denying that part of myself. When someone is refusing help it's because I too am refusing help. And on it goes...

And all this is very dynamic too. As I choose differently, my existence changes (1st statement) and with it so too do those I interact and reflect with. Even family relationships, which don't just go away so easily as others, change with my choices. As I've expressed more of who I really am, I am finding that they are more open with me and the relationships, which haven't always been easy ones for me, are getting easier and more relaxed. I've even noticed how those who no longer reflect me and whom I no longer reflect will just go away. They may not totally disappear, because that part of me hasn't totally changed, but they diminish in prominence. Friendships shift, relationships shift, colleagues shift...

The fourth statement is a great way to get to know yourself. Just observe those around you, don't judge, and ask yourself what part of you are you seeing in them and in their behaviour. Once you've observed it in others you are seeing it in yourelf. You can then decide if you like it or not and, if you want, you can choose differently.

Love, Jim

Looking into the mirror physically also. For me that can be hard sometimes, it's like I don't really like to face all things in myself. Wich is ofcourse being relfected back to me in others.

And another thing, the concept about god. The belief is in many cases that there is something greater then ourselfes, called god. Or angels for that matter, but the point is that if That Wich You Are Is That Wich I Am, And That Wich I Am Is That Wich You Are... then the great thing called god is you, or rather to turn it around what you percieve (if you do so) about yourself as being only a mind-ego personality is in fact an illusion. In actual fact that wich we are is limitless wich ties in to the statement I Am Limitless, My Choices Reflect My Limitlessness. Then what's left? Is the ego not me? Ofcourse as The Wonders and common sense sais, all parts are included into the totality. I think it could br rather silly if I can go that far to exclude the ego and mind from the totality. I am light I have no fear scenario. But including those parts who see themselfes as limited, another part of me chose to create those limits in a limitless fashion. Many times I feel when chatting with new age mindset type of people is that they talk about love but fail to see that they are that love and not only that, but that there is no greaet power since all is simply energy.. all is love.. period. Love is love.. And here comes All That I Am Is Love, All That You Are Is Love.

I have realized another thing also. It's that I have judged other people as not being able to understand what I have inside me or what I present, but after exploring this statement a little deeper.. That wich you are is.. I realize that that is just my judgement for what's in me is in others. It must be a fear of judgement from others that is causing this belief thatI'm separated to the point that people would not be able to understand me and add to that that I AM diffirent, wich has reinforced or created the possibility for me to precive this about myself.

Joy and wonder
