This morning, while letting the dogs play at the dog park, I stopped to sit and enjoy the fantastic weather and watch the dogs play. Across the grass from me was a trash can, and it was so interesting to watch people come to the can, gingerly holding a bag, throw it in and walk away with a visible sign of relief!

At one point I started smiling, and then it turned into laughter. I don’t like carrying around a bag of fresh dog poo either. I know that feeling of relief when I finally get around the course to a trash can and can let go of it. But that’s not why I was laughing.

I was remembering a workshop I attended in the early ‘80’s led by the actress, Gloria Manon, called “Break Through Drama.” It was the first workshop I’d ever taken of its type, so it had extra impact. At one point I was sort of embarrassed/amused by a term Gloria used – she called our old beliefs, (the ones we were hanging on to regardless of how they were working in our lives) “precious turds.”

As I sat on that bench in the park, I could see how gingerly each person held their bag of precious turds. They did anything to prevent from dropping them, all the while, trying not to touch them! They stopped to talk to people along the path, and tried to ignore that they even had them.

You see where I’m going with this? Isn’t this what we do with our lives? We have all sorts of interesting crap we’ve picked up over the years, and mostly we try to ignore it. Occasionally we remember, and then do everything we can to avoid it. Once we allow ourselves to let go of it, however, Wow – what a relief!!

Here’s something else I noticed – if a person doesn’t see that their dog has pooed – everyone around tells them and then watches them to make sure they clean it up! This seems to be what’s happening in the collective consciousness at the moment. The success of Debbie Ford’s Shadow Work, and the work of others, shows us that we might as well consciously participate!! Enrolling in Science of Mind courses is a good way to examine your beliefs as well. We can all use a good consciousness cleanse!!

Here’s to feeling a great relief!!


I recognize the powerful Presence of Divine Love. It is absolutely everywhere, including within me. It is the air I breathe, the things I touch, taste, smell, hear and see. It is all there is.

This Presence works for me, by working through me, according to my dominant beliefs. Knowing this Truth, I hereby declare I have released all that does not serve me. My mind is now filled with thoughts of beauty, peace, wisdom, health, wealth and creativity. My mind is filled with Divine Thoughts.
I focus on God, the Good, and as I do this, my life begins to reflect this Good.

What a relief this is. I have let go of worry, doubt and fear. I have accepted Christ Consciousness as my own. I know the Truth, and this Truth has set me free.

With a grateful heart, I release these words, knowing that I have already embodied them, and this too is good, very good. And so it is.

I watched an interesting video on YouTube today. It is called “16: Moment”

As I watched, it evoked memories – many different memories. Suddenly I realized it would do that for anyone watching, yet each person would have a different experience of it. Each person would be attracted by different moments in the film, and even if we were attracted to the same moments we would have a different experience of them. The memories that were evoked would be different. This is how we give meaning to things we see in present time – by what we know about things through our memories.

This is the way life works. We are all experiencing a different reality. We are experiencing the same story, but with different content because of the value we have given our memories of our experiences – especially the first time we did anything. We are born, raised from childhood to adulthood, get dressed, fall in love, fall out of love, have jobs, wash dishes, have colds, make love, have arguments, etc. Our lives are basically the same. Jesus, Buddha and Hitler all did the same things. However the meaning we give these experiences is different.

Our lives are made up of little moments. The more I study the Science of Mind, I realize how important each little moment is. It is like our little moments are beads strung on our timeline. Hmm, I just thought of a rosary. Did you know that the rosary has four sets of "Mysteries of the Rosary" - Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious? What if we are the Universes rosary? How would we be prayed? What are our mysteries? OK, I’m getting a little out there – but really, what are the moments of our timeline like? It’s up to us. Are we creating knots or beautiful, translucent beads. (Even sorrow can be beautiful.)

Make some beautiful memories with your little moments today.


We live in an infinite Field of creative potentiality. This Field is God. It has no beginning and no end. No boundaries. It is absolutely everywhere. Within It are both Love and Law. Love points the way to various possibilities and Law makes those possibilities real.
Today I choose to let go of yesterday and see each moment as brand new. This moment right now is fresh and unconditioned by my past. This moment is expanding into the next moment and the next, and I feel the preciousness of all of them.

My eyes are open to see a new reality. My mind is clear. My heart is pure. I choose to experience Love and Light and Joy. I choose to experience the Wisdom within me. I choose a Divine Reality that continually makes all things new. I come to this Reality with the wonder of a child, feeling loved and blessed.

My life is a string of beautiful moments. I am so grateful for this. So grateful to have the awareness to choose wisely. So grateful to be aware of the Power within my word, and grateful for my embodiment of Truth.

I release these words into that Infinite Field, knowing they are so, and so it is.
