If you attempt to move back into an experience of yesterday, even if that experience was pleasurable, you may find it gone. And if you persist in your attempt to recapture that, you experience frustration and, very often, pain and confusion. Many people encounter great difficulty in attempting to live somewhere other than now.

The spiritual person is always open to receive the flow of energy from Spirit and move in whatever way is indicated, freely and in love.

When you separate yourself and alienate yourself, it can be more difficult to maintain a positive focus. Your mind and emotions can start playing strange trips against you, and you may find yourself expressing a more negative point of view. When that starts happening (and you'll see the signs when you start complaining, gossiping, backbiting, etc.), it's time to do something to change it.

John-Roger, DSS
Jesus said, "I didn't come to destroy the law, I came to fulfill it." He fulfilled it, and he also said, "Since I fulfilled it, you do it now by grace. You don't have to fulfill the law anymore." It's like giving you a bank credit card that somebody else pays. And there is no limit on the charge.

John-Roger, DSS
Service is an expression of loving in action, with no demand for or expectation of a reward (monetary or otherwise). Service is its own reward. Along with that expression there are often side effects, known as joy and upliftment.

John-Roger, DSS
The ideal of living love is to be unconditionally loving all the time, everywhere. That doesn't mean that you need to be gushy or emotional. But it does mean being unconditional regardless of any outward appearance. Your inner response from your true self, the core of your being, to any situation, is one of loving unconditionally.

John-Roger, DSS
Spiritual exercise is not just about chanting a tone. It's also about focusing on what you would find uplifting, beautiful, and nurturing. You can focus your mind on something you truly love. That might be someone. It might be something you like to hear such as music or something you visualize like a beautiful place.

John Morton, DSS
Progression is infinite. When you think things are going great and you've "got a handle" on your life, keep in mind that it's not going to become static at that particular point. It may continue getting better and better as you continue lifting up in your awareness of Spirit, but it won't stay the same. If you try to hang onto something in exactly the form it now is, you'll lose it.

The consciousness spiritual people express is not to be abused, but it certainly is to be used. Often when you talk with a spiritual person, you can feel their Light and love and joy lifting you, giving you a clearer perception of your situation. Your enthusiasm builds as your consciousness lifts, and you go on your way refreshed and recharged.

John-Roger, DSS
You can look forward to pleasurable things and nice sensations in the future, but claim your happiness now.
