What Gives Us Hope / 7 Things Mentally Healthy People Tell Themselves / Sept. 4: Classes Resume

“You see it as YOU are.”

Scientists have discovered
the Mirror of their own minds
inside the tiny atom.
They found
that the existence and behavior of particles

depends on the intent of the scientist.

What science now tells us,
is that WE
define Reality itself,
and Mankind can tell a new story
about what it really means
to be Human.

“You do not see
the World
as it is.

You see it
as YOU are.”

Anais Nin

Our Consciousness
makes all of the things
that were,
and are
and will ever be.

“Many scientists
who are still part of the scientific mainstream
are no longer afraid to openly state
that consciousness/awareness could,
in addition to space, time, matter and energy,
be a fundamental element of the world –
perhaps even more fundamental than space and time.
It may be a mistake to ban the Spirit from Nature.
It is even questioned as to whether matter
should be considered a fundamental
element of the Universe.”

Jeremy Hayward (Nuclear physicist)

If we happen to be Immortal,
then it must be
a form of consciousness that,
in some way,
survives death.

                   As YOU are.

My Dear Friends,
if consciousness is a non-physical entity,
then it
(“YOU and I”)
by the Grace of God
will survive death.

”Consciousness is a process
lying outside the laws that govern
the material World,
and it is just this immunity from the quantum rules
that allows the mind to turn possibility into actuality.”
That is,
consciousness emanates into the physical World
from the brain
and the Spiritual world interacts
with biological evolution.”
Nick Herbert (physicist)

Waiting just inside your Beautiful Heart.

You are,
like your Father,
the One you came from,
not through.
And as a Child of God,
YOU are a Creator,
and your Hopes and Dreams
can become your adventures,
and become real.

you are laced with doubt,
just look about!
This unreal World
was made very real,
by the likes and dislikes
of you and I.
everything in it
was preceded by
a conscious thought.

do not cry.

the mind of Mankind
can make
whatever it imagines.
And that gives us

What is painful
to remember,
we can choose
to forgive and
The past is of great importance,
but it no longer
defines the future.

we have the
to give and Love and live
and forgive.

                    WE define Reality.

Oh yes,
can end
from the start,
make even more
devastating weapons,
create more suffering and grief,
more, much more,
and deep regret.

We have
the power.

let us not forget,
we are both
Creator and Created,
and our Dreams and Imaginings
can be made more
than real.

And God said:
It is a five word description
of the mirror
we call Life.

My Dear Friends,

also empowers us,
enables us,
to turn our fascination
with the power to Create,
into Love.

Waiting just inside
your Beautiful Heart
is our Tomorrow,
a day we can share,
a Love
that can last
Forever and ever.

                          If we walk together.

we walk together
OUR Creator,

this World
will not fall down
upon us.

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me.
I will hold your people in my Heart.”
Daniel L. Schutte

is a World
without Love.
And beyond lonely
is none.
No one –
a savage discontent
with existence,
a mirror of reality
with no reflection.

My Dear Friends,
we can
Light up
the Day
with Laughter,
create Joy and Love
that lasts longer
than ever after.

“Your Love is always there.
No sea could ever divide
The Love we share.
It’s always there.
Clear as the morning air,
As sure as winds keep blowing,
Love will be always there.”
Marti Webb

Each fragment
of our Sacred Being
is on a voyage of Creation,
a journey
of its own.

The Truth,
the reality of our Being,
is in our hands,
living in our Hearts,
in a reflection
of God’s Love.

We are both Creator and Created.

When we look into that marvelous mirror
called Life,
what appears there
speaks most intimately
of you as Creator.
After all,
we are the Children
of God.

Which leads
to a profound revelation:
if you desire,
if you have Faith,

YOU may take
complete control of your thoughts,
your feelings, your desires,
and Reality itself.

Truly I tell you,
if you have Faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’
and it will move.”

Matthew 17:20

God beckons you
to emerge from the dark cave
of denial and ignorance

and become the Master
of your Life.

       Emerge from the dark cave.

The true Nature
of Reality
lies deeply embedded
our Dreams and Hopes,
our Music and Poetry and Prayers,
our works of fiction
called Life,

yours and ours.

are quietly Sacred.
Our Prayers
enable us
to feel the very Fabric
of our Being,
to connect with a Consciousness
we have never felt,
never seen.

is simply talking
with God.

Discover the Beautiful Nature
of your Reality.
It lies in the World
of the unseen,
deeply embedded
in a work of Divine Art
you know of
as the Human


 Our Prayers enable us.

7 Things Mentally Healthy People
Tell Themselves
read more


  1. “I am a lovable.” No child is born who is not Lovable. Look at any newborn. That button nose and those tiny fingers and toes are meant to engage adult’s protective and loving feelings. You were no different. The adults around you when you were small may have been too wounded, too ill or to overwhelmed to love you but that is on them. You were and are — just by the fact of your existence — a lovable person.
  2. “I am capable.” From the time they take their first breath, Humans are wired to learn, to adapt, and to grow. You have been learning and growing every minute. You may not have been taught all you need to know to manage your feelings or to take care of yourself. You may have learned unusual behaviors or in order to survive. But you are never too old to learn new skills. Anything you’ve learned that is not helpful or healthy can be unlearned.
  3. Most other people are Lovable and capable, too.” It’s crucial not to let negative or painful experiences with a few negative or toxic individuals color our opinion of everyone. The majority of people in the world do mean well and are doing the best they can. Once we’re adults, we can choose who we want to surround ourselves with. We can seek out the people who are living lives that are decent, warm and contributing good to the world.
  4. “Success comes from doing.”  It’s been proven over and over again by researchers: Feeling good comes from doing good things. Positive self-esteem is the outcome, not the prerequisite, for being successful in relationships, school, work, sports, hobbies —  just about anything. We all have a choice whether we wait to feel better or we do the things that we know will help us become better.
  5. “Challenges are opportunities.” Life isn’t always easy or fair. How we meet challenges and obstacles is a choice. Healthy people find ways to engage with a problem and look for ways to solve it. They refuse to let their fears keep them from trying something new, even if it is difficult. Stretching ourselves outside of our comfort zones is what helps us grow. Mentally healthy people also recognize that sometimes the opportunity hidden inside a challenge is the opportunity to say “no.” Not all problems are worth solving. Not all problems can be “solved” as they are defined.
  6. “It is only Human to make mistakes”  : Mentally healthy people know that a mistake is not the reason to give up. It is an opportunity to learn and try again. Willingness to acknowledge and fix our errors is a mark of strength. Cultivating the courage to be imperfect is central to being willing to try again.
  7. “I have what it takes to cope with change — and to make changes.” Change is inevitable in life. Mentally healthy people believe in their ability to cope and to adapt to changes. They aren’t unrealistic. They don’t deny the seriousness of a problem. They do acknowledge when a situation is very difficult. They don’t criticize themselves for not wanting to deal with whatever it is they have to deal with. But they have a deep seated belief that if they do tackle the problem, they will eventually find a solution or a way around it.
