To be alive and not to know yourself is to believe that you are really dead. For what is life except to be yourself…? ~ A Course in Miracles


I think many of us postpone our dreams (and our happiness) until later. It could be when “I have the perfect partner, the bank account, the big house, etc., etc.”

That often turns into many years—or maybe never. Why? Often it’s because we are scared to death to be ourselves, to believe in ourselves.

Sound familiar? That was certainly me for too much of my life.


This hesitation to be yourselves, to trust yourselves, often seems to “come with the territory” when you chose to incarnate into physical form.

That certainly is a huge part of the challenges you all face in your earthly lives.

But it need not be so. In fact, part of your mission in life is to move through and beyond all your hangups like this.

We’d like to briefly explain how we, in the world of Spirit, see you.

As we’ve said many times over the years, there is no difference between you and God—or you and the divine energy that created you. You are one. The difference, the separation you think you see, does not exist. It’s not real. Only God is real.

That means virtually every perception or image you’ve ever created and held of yourself does not exist. It’s not who you are. It’s literally a figment of your imagination.

It’s time to rid yourselves of all your illusions, of all that is unreal in your lives. The reality, as we (and God) see you is you are wise and powerful far beyond what your human minds can ever imagine.

Your only purpose in your physical lifetimes is to reclaim your wisdom and your power—to make them part of your daily lives, to be fully aware and accepting of them in every waking moment. Then you will fully realize life is only about living your dreams and being yourself.

You owe that to yourselves. You owe that to your sisters and brothers. You owe that to us. You owe that to God.

In this video, Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives, Richard Williams, also known as Prince Ea, gives us some great incentives to—well—just be ourselves and live our dreams. I don’t agree with all he says, but he gives an inspiring talk.
