TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – Here’s a tip that is time-sensitive, so if you’re interested be sure to act quickly….
Janet Bray Attwood, best-selling author of The Passion Test, is holding a free tele-seminar on Aug. 30th titled Passionate Life – Awakening the Healer Within. It will include some of the leading healers of our time and will serve as an introduction to an event she is hosting in San Diego in Sept. (go here for more details on that).
# 2 – Experience Gangaji on Thursday, September 6th at noon PDT, 3:00 pm EDT, for “LIVING Enlightenment: The Keys to Discovering Lasting Fulfillment in Daily Life.”
During this virtual satsang you will:
* Recognize and unravel your limiting definitions of what life should look like
* Discover the capacity of your heart to embrace life’s high peeks and its valleys
* Redefine and expand your concept of “enlightenment”
* Connect to your most primal, ever-present innocence of being
According to Gangaji, it’s possible to break free from the idealizations distracting you from the radical fulfillment living within you, just waiting to be expressed. And when you anchor into the essence of who you are, a meaningful, loving, responsible, and fulfilled life becomes immediately available to you.

Key Lesson: Who you really are can’t be threatened by some seemingly dark moment in life any more than the sun trembles because a cold wind is blowing somewhere on earth.
Release Yourself From Dark Inner States
Dark inner states win their victory over us because we believe in them. More to the point, we believe in the illusions they create within us without seeing that these same mistaken beliefs then shape the structure of our reality.
No one is saying that our various dark inner states aren’t real, and those who claim otherwise deceive themselves and whomever they try to guide. Such darkness is a reality, including the shadowy creatures dwelling within it. But the key to understand here is that this reality called darkness is itself but an effect of a far and away Greater Reality: the Light.
Darkness, in whatever form we experience it — from a simple black, starless night, to a depressed thought or feeling — only exists in the absence of light. And the more clearly we can see the truth of this principle, regardless of the world in which it’s expressed, the greater our potential to realize its power.
The true solution for bringing an end to unconscious suffering now rests in our hands. The power needed to release ourselves from our unhappy moments is in the light of our new understanding as to how dark states keep us in the dark. In other words, to know the truth of them is our triumph over them. Now we must take these truths into action.
In summary, you’ll find below a short list of seven special lights. Learning to call upon the new understanding they contain and reveal is all the help you need to dismiss any dark inner states:
No negative state has the right to reside within you, and can only dwell therein if it tricks you into lending it a dark room in which to stay.
The Light is all the might you need to successfully turn away any dark inner visitor.
Your true wish to understand a negative state initiates the entrance of that specialized Light you need to make this same wish come true.
We suffer what we do, as we do, only through our unconscious consent, so the first step in freeing ourselves from unseen sorrow is to deliberately bring ourselves into conscious awareness of its dark presence within us.
Never accept the presence of any suffering state for the reasons it provides.
It is possible to understand any negative state out of existence!
Your created nature is a blend of shadows and the light that creates them, but your True Nature, your original essence, is a Light that has no shadows.

# 6 – And I love that last point by Guy, so I decided to use it as today’s quote. After all, we can’t be reminded of our True Nature too often…
