My Dear Friends:
I hope you all had beautiful fulfilling Thanksgiving. (or should I say full-feeling?)

Realizing the time of year, it would seem this message would concern "thanksgiving": that is certainly  a basic and fundamental consideration in spiritual growth.  We should learn to be thankful for all things  _ including the difficulties, which are
"opportunities for growth".  " In all things give thanks." ( 1 Thess:5:18 )  The first step however, is to consistently give thanks for all that we have, everything that makes life a little better, a little easier, more enjoyable.  An attitude of gratitude is truly thanksgiving.

My message for November however is that which came to me to write :
" The Truth Shall Set You Free. "  So here it is: along with Rudyard Kipling's poem,
" If, " which is so appropriate.

I am thankful to all of you for being there, for being you.  I am thankful for the responses of appreciation, the letters and calls that I have received from many of you.  I am thankful to be who I am, and thankful for the guidance and support I receive in so many ways.

I know the message enclosed is not for all of you, but there are some who will find it meaningful and helpful now, and others may find it will apply in the future.  Many times I find the messages are as much for me as for anyone else - maybe more so - but then they are shared.  If you find one part in this message that strikes a responsive cord, then my purpose is served, and all are blessed.
I bless you all, I love you.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard  Kipling


" In all these things give Praise. In all things find joy.  Each step ot the ladder leads upward.  Each rung has its purpose of going closer to your goal."
Received by Hazel, Oct. 13, 1978


Wouldn't it be nice to be free from fear? Free from any concern of what people might think of us; free from any concern about success or failure; free from any hurt, any reaction, to what others may say about us or do to us; free from any dread of poverty or inadequacy; free from any fear of loss? Wouldn't that be nice?...to be entirely without these burdens? NICE? It would be beautiful! It would be the "peace of God which passeth all understanding." (Phil.4:7) It would be total freedom!  

Let's look at a common example and see if we can understand what is going on - what's happening: 

Some one tells someone else something about you that hurts you, demeans you, that makes you appear inferior to that which you are....So what's happening? How do you react?


You may withdraw into yourself and cry hurt tears of frustration. You may churn inside with anger. You may speak out vehemently or angrily to gain recognition of your efforts and worth. You may reciprocate by issuing cutting, demeaning remarks about the person(s) who would put you down - "them which despitefully use you."
(Luke 7:28) 


You can smile to yourself knowingly because, you know the truth of yourself, your motives, and your actions. You know that he who would despitefully use you is but expressing from his state of consciousness and cannot do otherwise. His words have no power except that you give power to them. You may know you need prove nothing; in time then the reality of your being will be recognized. In Spirit your fruits are already established. 

Do you see that with the path of acceptance, of release, of non-reaction, you are free? You are free of the burden of fearing what others might think, say, or do to you or about you. Can you imagine the feeling of beautiful peaceful freedom you would have if you could release all concern for what others might think about you?

Stop here a moment......THINK......think about that!

It doesn't matter what others say or do or think concerning you. It really does not! So long as you know - AND GOD KNOWS! Who are you trying to please?

Consider these things : these may help you to understand what is taking place and help you
release a persecutor.  In releasing him, you also release yourself:

1. If something derogatory was said about you - and you did not hear it nor know of it; it would not then affect your thoughts or actions. You could then continue in positive activities and harmonies and would project energies of that nature. If you hear the remark but can forgive it, transcend it, the same truth of your being is projected. Those who heard the demeaning statement about you, may then observe your harmony and feel your wholesome radiations and know they had heard a falsehood and know you as you are. "By their fruits you shall know them." (Matt. 7:16-20) They are subsequently, also, recognizing the nature of him who would broadcast lies about you; they see "his fruits" as well. And by the fruits is the tree known. 

2. One who would speak falsely about you - demean you - does so, generally, because of his own
sense of inferiority, inadequacy, and insecurity. By putting down others, he purposes to raise his own image - both in himself and in the minds of others. Such a one will demean others as well, for that is
the consciousness of him. Those who, knowing him for what he is, would still heed his words, do so because they share in his sense of personal inadequacy and will share the "put down" as a boost to
their own ego. Know this...and release them to their path of being. This is in the nature of
forgiveness; "Forgive them who would despitefully use you." By releasing them, you also release yourself from their patterns that you have taken on by your resistance (expressed or contained).
By this releasing, you clear the channel and allow you own positive patterns to express what you are.

3. "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." (Matt. 6:12)
Our thoughts precede all words, all actions that come into the outward appearance. Any negative expression was first generated within by negative thoughts. These negative thoughts, whether or not they are brought out into expression or appearance, are the "depts" spoken of in the Lord's Prayer. They are depts of judgment. It is these "depts" that we must forgive in others, so that our "depts"
may likewise be forgiven. 

4. If you would fight back, if you argue in your defense, you tend to give energy to the lie. There
are several "truths" (cliques, if you will) that relate here:

TRUTH NEEDS NO DEFENSE - Truth speaks for itself! 
("What you are speaks so loudly - I cannot hear what is being said.")
" NOTE: This works on both sides.

RESIST NOT EVIL! (Matt.5:39) A bullet has a lot of energy when fired. If the bullet runs into the resistance of a target there are destructive consequences. If the bullet meets no such resistance, its energy is gradually dissipated and it falls harmlessly to earth. The demeaning words, the "chop" is a bullet that is destructive only when it meets resistance.  

5. If you would fight back by chopping the one who chopped you; in what way are you better than he? 

6. If you feel compelled not to speak out; so as not to propitiate anger or argument, but then bottle up the hurt or the anger within yourself - what then? You are then holding the poisons of reaction, the poisons of ego fear within yourself and these poisons contaminate the thought processes and also the physical system and manifest in a reinforcement, as a justification, of the fears and anxieties; and may also appear as physical disabilities, headaches and tensions.

YOU CAN RELEASE!                                                                                                                          YOU CAN BE FREE!                                                                                                                              YOU CAN HAVE PEACE!
You can let go!      I would see you free, at peace,joyful - all of you.
And any negative image you have of yourself.

Now reconsider, all that has been said, from this viewpoint: The one who speaks in a derogatory manner about you may be yourself (your ego self). You unknowingly HOPE to prove the opposite      of those negative things you might say about yourself. Your higher Self WILL NOT resist, will not condemn you, not judge you, but accepts you where you are and awaits your own recognition of     your true wholeness.



LET GO OF OTHERS; RELEASE THEM TO BE WHAT THEY ARE - they will not be         otherwise - unless they wish to change. When one would speak out against you, you can say to yourself, "OK! He can only do what it is his present nature to do."


"Forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34) This is the basis of compassion, the framework, the doorway for release, the foundation for "love thine enemies (Matt.5:44), the pathway of freedom. 
Similar understandings may be realized, regarding reaction or release, and freedom through the practice of these truths spoken of here, relative to all those other fears noted in the beginning of this mesage; relative to any fears you may experience. All fears may be transcended, released! TRY IT!

     LET GO!           PRACTICE IT!           MEDITATE ON IT!       YOU WILL KNOW PEACE.....

"Peace I leave with you,   my peace I give unto you;   not as the world giveth,   give I unto you.        Let not your heart be troubled,  neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)


Meditation Quickies - to ponder:
Hazel, Oct. 12, 1978:  "The time is now.   The place is you.  The experience is love."

Nov. 18, 1978:  "Sunsets can be beautiful. But so also is the sunrise of a new day.                                                                                                                                                                                Although  we often do not open our eyes soon enough to enjoy its beginning."

RECOMMENDED READING - There are 2 books that are excellent in explaining interpersonal relationships: how we unknowingly contribute to the difficulties we experience in these relationships, and how we can do something about it:

1. "A New Guide to Rational Living" by Drs. Ellis & Harper.

2. "The Art Of Selfishness" by David Seabury
