Everyone has a story about their favorite teacher. The person who inspired them perhaps recognized a quality or talent in them that they didn't even know they had.
Dedicated teachers make all the difference in the classroom. They encourage students to believe anything is within their grasp and most importantly they help them to reach their goals. Here at Playing For Change Foundation we are fortunate to have all our programs staffed by “favorite” teachers.
As part of our technology expansion initiative we are creating an online portal of Teacher Resources and Curriculum. It not only will provide services but strengthen connections between our programs all over the world. It will allow teachers to do what they love. Teach!
It is our way of thanking them, supporting them and helping our kids reach their goals.
There is no requirement for you to do anything. You can just live your life. If you are smart, you will not pay too much attention to the picture of "reality" coming in constantly from the Internet and all the other outlets describing the world for us. It is very important that you realize that those stories about the world provide a very limited and biased view of the world. They come from a place where people believe you should know all of the unwanted things going on so you can protect yourself from them or fight them. Focusing energy on all the bad news only gives it more power to control our decisions and beliefs about the world.
The point of The Gaia Game Alliance is to spread the awareness that "resistance is futile" and hope and positive expectation are the only way you can contribute to positive change. This Alliance hopes to bring together a growing number of people who strive to replace the unwanted elements of the currently accepted world view with a view consistently filled with hope, love and appreciation. These are the antidotes to the fear, anxiety and distrust that is promoted by the "news media" view of the world.
So, are you helping? We urge you to give it a shot. You will undoubtedly find your days more enjoyable with less stress. The stress of contemporary life is almost entirely due to our constant exposure to pain and suffering in the world around us. There is no denying that it exists but it is not the predominant reality of the planet. Also there are always multiple ways of looking at any situation. You can see a problem and feel bad or you can begin to create a solution and send your hope and love to raise the spirits of those who are suffering. The key is to place your attention on an image that is "healed" and a reality that is wanted.
With enough "belief" anything is possible. Jesus could heal the sick not because he was any more divine than you or I but because he knew that consciousness determines reality. He was able to project such a doubt free "belief" in their "wellness" with the energy he projected at the individual and those witnessing the healing that "reality" was altered right before their eyes. It was considered a miracle only because what happened did not fit with what most people believed was possible.
To gain in your ability to reshape the world around you, the most important realization you must arrive at is that "consciousness" creates reality. Whatever you think and believe the world to be it will be. As you begin to realize that your thinking is the cause of the physical form you find in your world, you will begin to increase your power to shape the world to be inline with your hopes and dreams. As we said earlier, you have no obligation to do anything but you do have a great opportunity. With a little practice and determination you will become a very powerful and "intentional" Designer of Reality.
Please sign up for our PositiVibes Newsletter - if we can organize our combined intentions a bit we can greatly increase our ability to shape "collective consciousness" which creates the generally accepted shape of reality from one moment to the next. There is also a book, The Edge of Creation, that expands on these ideas and gives examples of ways to take your personal future in new and more wanted directions. Get the book from Amazon.
Mining the moment for something that feels good, something to appreciate, something to savor, something to take in, that’s what your moments are about. They’re not about justifying your existence. It’s justified. You exist. It’s not about proving your worthiness. It’s done. You’re worthy. It’s not about achieving success. You never get it done.
It’s about “How much can this moment deliver to me?” And some of you like them fast, some of you like them slow. No one’s taking score. You get to choose. The only measurement is between my desire and my allowing. And your emotions tell you everything about that.
It is the position of the Positivibes Network that consciousness creates reality. When an idea/inspiration pops into your mind and is given power by the emotion of desire/wanting it becomes a prayer or request to ones God Self to fulfill. There is no qualification of right or wrong, deserved or undeserved. The request will always be fulfilled if the intention is pure. By that we mean the intention must be un-conflicted. In other words, if you are requesting but in the same moment doubting that your request is going to be fulfilled, that doubt actually sends a request in for exactly what you don't want. This is why you must be clear in your faith and belief to get all that you want.
To take it a step further, if your "pure" intent is combined with others, the power to create an altered reality becomes even greater. This is the power of an event like the annual Unity World Day of Prayer. By bringing a large number of people into alignment with the idea of realizing a more peaceful and loving world, the power of that energy is magnified and can send a wave of healing power through all of Creation. Shifting world consciousness away from prevailing beliefs in lack, limitation and separation if like altering the course of a huge ship at sea but each loving positive wave of energy that hits it will help improve it's direction.
Here is the Unity message for this Day of Prayer:
World Day of Prayer
I AM A HEALING PRESENCE.
A gentle yet powerful message from Spirit within is continually calling on me to accept all that I can be. Today I unite in mind and heart with others celebrating Unity World Day of Prayer by affirming these words:
Aligning my mind and heart with the mind and heart of God, I center myself in Pure Being. In a state of spiritual realization, I remember I can never be broken, limited, or unworthy. Courageously, I rise into my true spiritual nature in this moment of healing. I heal the whole of me as I accept that I am brave. I am bright. I am beautiful.
My self-regard and self-respect are not mere platitudes but rather essential stances from which I support healing in the world.
Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.—Philippians 4:9
Resistance is Futile ... A great way to recognize the truth of this concept is to
think of “resistance training” for the body:
Resistance training (often known
training or weight training) is anything that places resistance on the body and
requires the body to create an internal tension to counter the force.
The truth is that when you are “resisting” anything, you are
adding to its strength.Just like
resistance training for the body strengthens the muscles receiving the
resistance, so resisting a person or situation you do not like actually adds to
its strength.If we apply this idea to
things going on in our world it is easy to see that we may be approaching
situation in a way that will be less likely to generate the result that we
The case of Donald Trump is a perfect example.For this discussion it does not matter
whether you are for or against him except in how those feelings inspire you to
act.The strength of Donald Trump is
that with all of the controversy he consistently puts forward a vision of
success and improvement.It makes no
difference if what he says is “true” or not.It is the directing of energy that is important – he is a master at controlling
the story line.What so many fail to
realize is that “truth” is a matter of perception and belief which are not
necessarily based in “truth”.The
biggest problem for Donald Trump right now is that he has allowed himself to
get caught up in the resistance – he is fighting back. This will be his
undoing.If he could just choose to
ignore all the resistance the balance of energy would stay on his side but he simply
does not realize it - he feels a need to defend himself. Resistance is futile.
So what should those who have been investing so much energy
in resisting Donald Trump do?They must
create a story that inspires people to believe in a better future.Resisting Donald Trump only strengthens him.This is the real reason Hillary Clinton failed
to beat Mr. Trump in the election – she never adequately developed “her” story
for a better future.She was all about
opposing Trump.She fell into the trap
of a “fear” based campaign that made her unappealing to many voters.Hope always sells more than dread.Here is what the Democratic Party must do if
they are to shift the momentum in new directions: they must start painting a
picture of the world they want.They
must stop fighting Trump and begin to show us a clear and better vision of the
future.A fighter is not needed.A fighter will only give the current reality
the opposition it needs to stay in power.Change the channel. Create a new and improved narrative and the old
stories will get played out.Resistance
is futile.Hope and positive expectation
are the key to getting where you want to go.
This message is from Unity, a non-denominational Spiritual organization working to inspire and uplift Spirits around the planet. A "World Day of Prayer" can alter the future. Consider adding your PositiVibes to the day.
World Day of Prayer is just three days away. Have you made plans to join Unity for uplifting music, prayer, and meditation as we heal ourselves, our communities, and our world?
The theme for 2018 is “Courage to Heal.” We’ll be guided by the affirmation: I am a healing presence.
This year is especially meaningful as it marks 25 years of joining hearts and minds in prayer during World Day of Prayer.
It will mean so much if you can consider making a special contribution to Unity in honor of this milestone celebration of the power of affirmative prayer. As you know, our prayer ministry is supported by the generosity of friends like you who believe in the power of prayer to change lives.
Thank you for visiting The PositiVibes Network.The more like minded people we can bring
together, the greater our ability to “imagineer” improved future realities for
The PositiVibes Network is a source of news and ideas that
are focused on transforming beliefs about the world we live in.We will spread the awareness that there is no
outside force directing reality.We are
GOD and we, individually and collectively are in charge.We are each the “designers” of our own unique
personal reality.People will come to
realize that whatever they “choose” to believe will be what they inevitably
experience as their reality.Reality is “created”
in consciousness.All that you
experience is created by you.Your
beliefs are likely greatly affected by the “news” being broadcast out on endless
channels decrying the horrors, pain and suffering filling the world.The sad truth is that those stories only help
create more of the same as they encourage fear and worry about the state of the
world.As you will discover, since you
are GOD, whatever you wish for (focus your attention on) will come to
pass.We must begin to tell more stories
of love and joy.More stories about a
world that evolving in positive directions every day.
So, that’s what we shall do.We shall take responsibility for the world we create in our mind and
strive to only energize those things we want to believe in.We shall stop “fighting” against realities we
don’t want and instead ignore them as much as possible while consciously
seeking out and praising the world that is as we wish it.
You are killing more of each other every day over your quarrels over religion than all other things put together, because you cannot even come to an agreement about what you think God says, or wants for you. On one side of the world God wants something different than the other. On one side of the room, in one side of your mind, God wants something different than on the other.
The power is within you. You are extensions of this powerful Source Energy. You are literally God expressing in this physical body. And so, as you are standing in a thought, or in a word, or in an action that feels good to you as you are standing there—then you are fully open and allowing all of that Divine Energy to flow through you. And in that moment you are all that you said you would be when you decided to come forth into this body. You are the extension of pure positive energy. You are in your full creative power. You are thriving. You are clear-minded. You are joyful. You are filled with love. You are who you are—you are allowing that which you really are.
Excerpted from Syracuse, NY on 9/30/00
Esther (Abraham and Jerry)
Here's the crazy thing: I have recently come to the realization that we are GOD. Each of us. In fact all conscious beings are GOD.
This needs some explanation obviously since most of us do not feel like we are GOD and may even believe that is a very presumptuous thing to say - might even get some entity mad at you. I point of fact though GOD is EVERYTHING - it is the unified field that quantum physics and the Albert Einsteins of the world have been trying to explain or define or quantify in some way. It is really so comprehensive that its totality is well beyond our ability to grasp. The magnitude of scope and diversity found in the known physical Universe is well beyond our ability to fully appreciate and absorb. According to Quantum Physics, that material Universe only makes up about 5% of what's out there and we have no real understanding of the rest of it.
If you were just one of the trillions of cells in your body you would not be able to comprehend the entire body BUT you would have no trouble doing what you were supposed to do and getting all you were supposed to get from your interaction with the rest of the body under normal circumstances. If the system gets out of balance due to some kind of stress then that can change but lets say all is working well and in balance. You are one individual cell doing your thing but you are also working in synergy with all of the other cells. You don't need to know anything about the responsibilities of other cells. On this level all runs smoothly and with proper maintenance and no serious physical or stress related damage all can run well for a long time. You don't even need to do much but stay out of the way - everything runs itself. You actually have a bio-computer brain doing the work when any supervision of all the cells and their activity is necessary.
Then there is YOU (or GOD). This highly sophisticated creature that you refer to as (your name here) is really just a material vehicle controlled by the REAL YOU which is pure consciousness. That's where we get to the GOD part. Like those trillions of individual cells in your physical body, you are an individualized bit of consciousness that makes up GOD. While those cells in your body are short lived, your bit of consciousness is eternal and an equal inseperable part of all that is on an energy level. Just as those cells are the body, your point of consciousness is GOD.
Here is our 21st Century material world, the best way to get a grasp of this is to use a computer model. The totality of GOD is an infinite "network" - a galactic Internet of infinite scale. Think of your physical self and that bio-computer "basic operating system" as on computer on that network. You are the network just as much as any other computer in the network is the network. As long as you have a good connection to the network you have access to the whole system. You just need to know that you have total access to the GOD network and learn how to control the system.
