Listen, here’s the good news and the bad news. As I was saying over on the 2012 Scenario Discussion Group. (Oh, you’re not on it? Well, be there or be square. That’s where the action’s happening or going to be happening real soon.)….
The good news is: “The path starts at the trailing edge of the leading foot.”
The bad news is: “There is no path. There is only the next step.”
Don’t know what to do? I got it. Get to work.
Don’t know where the money will come from? I got it. Get to work.
There is no path. There is only the next step.
This is hard-nosed permission giving. I don’t have time to look good. I don’t have time to be right. I don’t have time to furnish footnotes or give credit where credit is due.
Don’t like what I’m saying? I got it. Get off it, get over it, and get on with it.
Wanna be successful in what you want to do? Give up needing to get credit. Let someone else have the credit if they want it. You do the work.
What was it Jesus said? If you claim the credit, you have your reward. Seek none from him.
What was it Krishna said? We have the right to the work but not to the fruits of the work.
Give up hoping for reward. What comes to us from doing the work is our reward. What comes to us? Oh, happiness, fulfilment, full self-expression, love, being touched beyond our capacity to hold it in. Need more?

There are three laws we need to pay attention to now:
(1) The Law of Attraction.
(2) The Law of Free Will.
(3) The Law of Karma.
All of those will be speeding up and our use of them will be becoming more effective, quicker, starting yesterday. (I got that we took yesterday off. OK, but time off ends today.)
(1) The Law of Attraction.
Like attracts like. Worry attracts something to worry about. Fear attracts something to be afraid of.
Love attracts love. Forgiveness attracts forgiveness. The desire to help and serve attracts the means to help and serve.
Start using the Law of Attraction intelligently. It’s our greatest tool.
(2) The Law of Free Will.
The galactics and the interdimensional beings (that is my new code word for people who don’t live at this moment in a physical body; that is, spirits, and especially the ascended masters) will not intervene in your life without you asking for it. You must ask for what you want and need. So start asking.
Want to create an airlift to Japan? Start asking for help. Need money to feed that poor family around the corner from you? Start asking for help. Want to start a blogsite devoted to ending pandemics, weather warfare or poverty? Start asking for help.
Start using the Law of Free Will intelligently.
(3) The Law of Karma
What you sow you reap. Well, for heaven’s sake, start sowing the seeds you want to reap. You want help for yourself? Start helping others. You want an airlift to Japan? Start working on an airlift to Japan. You want to get better from illness? Start helping others to get better from illness.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you because that is the way the world operates: what you do unto others is in fact what is done unto you.
Start using the Law of Karma intelligently.

Like it or not, this universe was designed. It is a place that works according to laws. People are born. People age. People appear to die, even if they don’t. They reincarnate. They use bodies. Those bodies have DNA and RNA. On and on the design of life goes and design elements of life operate.
You are a spirit in a machine. The spirit is not a fixture per se but it operates by using fixtures. Yes, it’s true that make-believe separations in Spirit were made and, if you stretch things, you could consider that separation to be itself a fixture. OK, I concede the point.
But material things are for sure fixtures.
Your body is a fixture. Thoughts are fixtures. Feelings are fixtures. But YOU are not a fixture and the only thing in the whole wide world that isn’t. Start using fixtures intelligently.
OK, you’re still here reading this article. You should be getting to work. What are you doing sitting there still reading!!! Get real. Get down to it!!! Get to work!
If you can’t start an airlift to Japan by tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., I want to see you opening a blogsite and writing about something. Those who can’t organize themselves organize others. (Just kidding.) Where is that emoticon when I need it….
Work does not need to be physical. Work does not need to be mental. Work does not need to be emotional.
Work can be spiritual.
As Sri Ramakrishna said, and Krishna said before him, there is no one in the world that is not active or who can be inactive for a moment. Breathing is activity. Wanting is activity. Feeding ourselves, sleeping, daydreaming is activity.
Activity cannot be avoided for a moment. Don’t even think that you can be dead and not active. Guess what? The dead are active.
Stop waiting for the last trump. The last trump comes on Dec. 21, 2012. For sure you won’t miss it. On that day the dead (i.e., the unenlightened) will rise (i.e., become enlightened). That will be the last day of mortality (i.e., unenlightenment). You don’t need to set your clock for it. You cannot miss it so get to work.
There’s a world to build. Start building.
There is only activity that contributes to a world that works for everyone and activity that does not. Start acting intelligently.
To him that hath not, even what remains will be taken away. To him that hath, even more will be added. (Figure it out!)
I ask for more brains, a bigger heart, and more energy. I want it yesterday. I expect it by special delivery – No! Hold it! Fedex.
I want no excuses from my spirit team (not like I’d get any). If I have forgotten to ask for something that’s important for me to have to get to work, I ask that my team supply the deficiency.
