If anyone has a great sense of self, it’s my Step Mom, Dede. She is the most loving, accepting woman I know. My dad was very lucky to have found her.
Yesterday, I talked about how Truth is Real. Real things have these qualities: they are good; they are true; they are harmonious; they are beautiful; they are perfect; and they are loving. If they don’t have all of those qualities, they are not real. They are, in fact, unreal.
Unreal things lack substance, substance being goodness itself. You can easily distinguish what is not real and turn your mind and your self away from it. an example: Dede is real. She has all the qualities that make something real. Some of our current politicians are not real, and need to be turned away from. You can fill in the names yourself, I’m quite sure.
One of the clues that help you to decide if a thing is real or unreal is this: real things never change, while unreal things change. Truth Itself is changeless. 2 x 2=4 is a changeless truth. It is true now and will always be true. What’s really cool about this is that once you know a particular truth, nobody can fool you about any other answer. For example, if I said that 2 x 2 = 6, you’d know immediately it was untrue, unreal, wouldn’t you? Like that.
Mistakes (error) is not real. You can turn away from mistakes and think something better in their place. If you currently think you are too heavy, and you recognize that it can change, you know immediately it’s not real. So, turn your thinking away from “too heavy” and think instead “I am my perfect size.” Your mind has been waiting years for you to get this one. It would be thrilled to give you “perfect size” if you’ll just keep thinking it……until YOU are convinced it’s true.
