You did not say as you made the decision to come forth into this physical
environment, "I'll go, but get all the kinks worked out before I get there." You did not say, "I want world peace,
which means everybody's happy, I want all economies to be running smoothly, and I want all disease off the face of the earth,
then I'll go."
You said, "Let me at it. I will enjoy this contrast, and I
will learn to find my vibrational place within it. And I will attract to me, from this well-stocked kitchen, that's
got some of everything, I will attract the ingredients that I choose to make the pie that I will call my life."
You didn't say, "Fix it, and then I'll go,"
nor did you say to any other person, "You have to be a certain way so that I can flow my Energy of love to you." You said,
"I have the capacity to love, and I have the ability to choose positive aspects over negative aspects. I don't care how many
negative aspects you choose to show me. I am a lover."
And when you discover that, you are liberated. When you believe
that they've got to get it all perfect in order for you to feel good, you're in big trouble, because there's somebody not
doing something to please you, around every corner. And the more you focus upon it, the more of them will show up to show
you that they're doing something that does not please you, you see.
Workshop Transcript 3/12/94
March 19, the Abraham-Hicks San Antonio office received so many queries regarding the USA/Iraq confrontation that they
decided to post excerpts from their 3/8/03 workshop in San Francisco. In this brief excerpt, Abraham addresses the issues
-- on War, etc.
The longer article is on the web site (see link below).
It is our promise to you, that if mass consciousness were not involved
nothing could ever escalate to be something that is played out on the world stage. It would play out in the parking lot. But
the more people get involved in it, then the more energy is around it, and then, the more large the events must come about.
When your Twin Towers were struck by airplanes on 9/11, it was a huge
culmination of energies that had been going on for a long time. But when you think about it, it was a very small representation;
it certainly was not a world war; it certainly was not a world event. It was proportionate to the energies that had been stirred.
But now, as a result of all of the attention that's been offered to
it, it is becoming a bigger energy. And it could not amass that energy, if there were not millions of people that are getting
collectively involved with it. In other words, it's just a parking lot brawl that got bigger -- that's all it is.
So, that's why, the two statements that we made earlier, we really
want you to hear both of them. One: there will always be war, whether it's in a parking lot, or it will be as big as you choose
to participate within and give power to it. But second: Well-being is always the dominant Energy. And so, you speak it in
terms like, "The pendulum is swinging." And we say, don't make someone else's parking lot brawl about you.
Don't become involved in it. Don't let them bring you into it. Don't
let them make you use it as your excuse to deny the Energy. If you are really wanting to bring your government to the place
that it cannot wage war, then don't get involved in it and add your Energy to it, you see. It is so wonderful when you realize
that you can be joyful without anybody else ever figuring it out. And that the majority of people, when they focus upon their
own experiences, do live in joy.
We would make the parking lot brawl, no matter how big it seems, a
non-issue to our vibrational experience. And if everyone would do it, there wouldn't be enough Energy for George Bush or Saddam
to have a war. They'd be having a parking lot brawl.

Poem: "I Am There"
By James Dillet Freeman
Poet of the Unity Church)
Do you need Me? I am there.
You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by.
hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel Me, yet I am the power at work in your hands.
I am at work,
though you do not understand My ways.
I am at work, though you do not recognize My works.
I am not strange visions.
I am not mysteries.
Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know Me as I am,
and then but as a feeling
and a faith.
Yet I am there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer.
When you need Me, I am there.
Even if you deny Me, I am
Even when you feel most alone, I am there.
Even in your fears, I am there.
Even in your pain, I am there.
I am there when you pray and when you do not pray.
I am in you, and you are in Me.
Only in your mind can you feel
separate from Me,
for only in your mind are the mists of "yours" and "mine."
Yet only with your mind can you
know Me and experience Me.
Empty your heart of empty fears.
When you get yourself out of the way, I am there.
can of yourself do nothing, but I can do all.
And I am in all.
Though you may not see the good, good is there, for
I am there.
I am there because I have to be, because I am.
Only in Me does the world have meaning;
out of Me does the world take form;
only because of Me does the world go forward.
I am the law on which the
movement of the stars
and the growth of living cells are founded.
I am the love that is the law's fulfilling.
I am assurance.
I am peace.
I am oneness.
I am the law that you can live by.
I am the love that you can
I am your assurance. I am your peace. I am one with you.
Though you fail to find Me, I do not
Though your faith in Me is unsure, My faith in you never wavers,
because I know you, because I love
Beloved, I am there.
A copy of "I Am There" is now on the moon... carried there on the
Apollo XV voyage by Astronaut James B. Irwin, and left on the
moon for future space voyagers.

a bottomless ocean
floating first on the surface
beginning to trust
my body warmly supported
rippling with the waves
breeze playing softly over my face
ears filled with watery silence
yet alive with mysterious
seeming somehow to come from within me
feeling timeless, poised like an invisible thread
between all I feel,
and know, and remember
and the depths of all I do not know
yet, somehow, feel I remember
a deep breath
and I submerge
filtered sunlight echoing
an altered universe
magically strange and unknown
it has always been here
unaffected by the surface changes
still and quiet, a world unto itself
one with the surface, connected
flip side of the same coin
I effortlessly glide
deeper into the warmth
darker and quieter,
yet a glance upward still reveals
the dancing light, reassuring
always there, welcoming
waiting to light my way
even deeper now
closer to something
waiting, calling to me
calling me home
after a long busy day of make believe
when I realize I am tired
and happy to give my games a rest
ever deeper now
warmth surrounding me thickly
no need to relieve my lungs
like being back in the
the deep darkness a comfort
filled with such expectation
and safety, content to wait
and dream of days
such splendid plans
and innocent trust
nothing to do
but just be
no end to the depths
thick and warm, yet expansive
illuminated without need for light
any thoughts at all
gentle invisible currents
outside of time
impossible to feel
I begin or end
no need for dreams
no need for desire or dread
silence inside and out
yet the fluid, mysterious
music of the universe
streams through me
like sunlight through a flower petal
yet filled with everything
and nothing all at once
like the surprise of a rainbow
after the most terrible dark storm
and yet so,
like the unadulterated peace
of baby at Mother's breast
separation unknown, unimagined
only THIS moment
one, by one, by one at a time
how could I have forgotten?
a bottomless ocean
