“Surrender What? Surrender Your Agenda!”

A Fellow Student Who attends many Cosmos Tree Events wrote some brilliant rap lyrics that many of us at Cosmos Tree regularly sing out loud as reminders of a Key Teaching brought forward by Dr. Lane, the Founder and Director of Cosmos Tree. These brilliant and catchy rap lyrics are “Surrender What? Surrender Your Agenda! Surrender What? Surrender Your Agenda!”

This is what we all need to do, according to the Teachings that Dr. Lane brings forward.

Up until now, I have run my agenda, which is anything other than being Present – the Focus inside mySelf as Spirit. By choosing to go with and persist in thoughts and feelings instead of being Present with Spirit, I create karma/negativity. I’ve done so in order to keep mySelf company with “chatter”, which I allow to mask the fear of getting quiet inside mySelf. I’ve run my agenda by “trying to figure things out” in order to control people and situations instead of being entirely Present – to focus inside yourSelf as Spirit – and from There Allowing the Real Solutions in perfect timing (versus “my timing”).

As Dr. Lane explains in the Video/DVD and TV Series Understanding The Spirit You Are, whenever we are miserable, we are doing one thing: “control”!

Run your agenda and you’re creating karma, which separates you from the Spirit you are, from your True Self. You are also responsible for those creations.

So how do we give up trying to control things and Allow the real “control”, Which comes from our Choice to be Present – to take moment-to-momentsteps to be clearer inside ourSelves and to focus there.

Start by using some important Tools brought
forward by Dr. Lane!

The Most Important Tool is Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High, as Dr. Lane has Taught me. As written in a blog titled “The Meditation Transformation”, available on costmostree.org, over and over again I have observed people who attend Meditation for very short periods of time – once or twice in a month – I am always struck by the transformation. They seem much more Peaceful.

I Know this is so because so much has been “taken” from them in this Process. As the second part of that blog’s title states of Meditation: “A Miracle In A Month.” Indeed It is. See cosmostree.org for locations and times. Once you attend one Meditation you are given what you need to do It at home.

One is the Two-Part Release Technique. Whenever negativity comes up, stop and call in the Light Of The Most High like this: For the Highest Good Lord, God, send me Your Light! For the Highest Good Lord, God, please take anything that separates me from the Spirit I am!” Tell yourSelf, “(your name), it’s OK to let it go!”  In my case, I Surrender the fear and do so as often as necessary. 

Tools For Living Free, a double-sided educational publication available by going to cosmostree.org at “Resources” features easy-to-follow Step-by-Step exercises that are often versions of the Two-Part Release. A Baker’s Dozen: Tools For Daily Living, Dr. Lane’s latest Book, is another Tool filled with exercises to help you let go of negativity/your agenda.

Next is to Trust. You do this by Co-Creating what you want with the Lord, God for the Highest Good and then Trusting, Allowing and Receiving. The Process is one of “effortless effort”, as Dr. Lane frequently Teaches. When you Co-Create as described below, you may indeed need to take “outer action” but you do it Neutrally, without attaching to results/running your agenda!

To Co-Create with the Lord, God, call in the Light Of The Most High as instructed for the Two-Part Release Technique. Then ask the Lord, God for what you want like this: “For the Highest Good Lord, God, please [fill in what you want; in my case, for a particular relationship where someone has been angry at me to now be easy and effortless (instead of building a case against this person inside mySelf or coming up with what I “think” is going on, which is always based on ignorance.)”

The Key in Co-Creation is to Surrender my agenda and just Receive. Let go! Allow and Receive!

I did This the other day when I needed money for rent. Up until now, I would run my agenda: figure out how I’m going to get it; worry about getting it or not getting it; think about when it will come in or why it hasn’t already. And build up a lot of pressure inside mySelf.

I did none of this agenda-building. I simply Co-Created my preference for the Highest Good, which was for a person or company to sign up now for one of the consulting packages I offer, the cost of which pretty much equals what I need for rent. I chose to Trust. I chose to be agenda-free by Co Creating with Spirit as described above and Allowing Spirit’s Agenda, Which is the Only Real One anyway!

The money came in. It came in because I also Allowed the Flow of Spirit/Spirit’s Agenda and I Received it. And because it was for the Highest Good. It was a Gift from God. The Receiving was an Inner Receiving, Which was a quiet, beautiful resting and relaxing into mySelf and choosing to stay There. No self-agenda. No “thing”, as Dr. Lane explains in the InValuable Tools For Living Free titled “DoNothing. Do No “thing.”It was the “effortless effort” of which Dr. Lane speaks  often.

The antidote to agenda-building is simply do nothing. In order to “do nothing” we all need to make the “effort” although the “effort”, as Dr. Lane Teaches, is “effortless effort” by Co-Creating what we want with the Lord, God, for the Highest Good (see above for instructions), then Let Go! Trust, Allow and Receive!

In other words, I Do Nothing but get quiet inside mySelf and Receive!

Are You Playing The “Numberless Game”? If Not, Start Now!

In the Video/DVD entitled “The ‘False Self vs. True Self’Game” from the Series “Understanding The Spirit You Are” by Dr. Roger B. Lane, the Founder/Director of Cosmos Tree and My Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Lane says:

“We may find ourSelves doing what I call the numberless game which is there are 99 people who do this in that way and yet my Inner Truth is I need to do the very same thing according to the Integrity of my Truth, Which is different so that the numbers don’t add up. As a matter of fact, they may be against me. …”

Let me give you an example! The holidays have just ended and, thanks to the Gift of Loving Service Given to me by Dr. Lane, I spent much of it hosting/attending every Offering at the Cosmos Tree Center: Meditations and/or Sunday Programs on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year’s, New Year’s Eve.

When I first started hosting on holidays, I was afraid to tell my family that I wouldn’t be joining them for Thanksgiving. What would they think? Say? Even “do”? As Dr. Lane has pointed out, I was attached to the opinions of others, in this case, millions of others in the form of the societal “norm” that holiday equals in-person family time, no matter my preference otherwise.   

I hosted two Meditations on Thanksgiving so I essentially spent the day at the Cosmos Tree Center; this year, this single day of Growth And Upliftment was one of the best days of my life. I was in Joy! I was In Celebration! What a Gift! All I did was show up! And commit and recommit as needed to being There!

That first year that I spent Thanksgiving at the Center, I Learned how to work this numberless” situation – and others – Spiritually. Here’s how: call in the Light Of The Most High inside yourSelf: “For the Highest Good Lord, God, send me Your Light!’ For the Highest Good Lord, God, please [fill in what you want; for instance, to be at the Center and also for everything with my family to work out easily and effortlessly, etc.] That first year, my favorite family members “just happened” to be in my neighborhood the next day and we got together!

You can also direct your basic selves – the part of you that brings forward your karmic patterns and that loves to “belong” or, as Dr. Lane has said, to play “the numbers game” – like this: “Basics, come present! I need your cooperation and energy to [direct them into the action you prefer; for instance, host/attend Meditation at the Center on Thanksgiving and be in Joy and Peace as we do This!] Thank you and let’s keep up the great work doing This!”

You can also use the Two-Part Release Technique by calling in the Light Of The Most High as noted above; then say, “For the Highest Good Lord, God, please take any fear from me!” and tell yourSelf, “(your name) it’s OK to let it go!”

Most importantly, as Dr. Lane Teaches in the Video/DVD, there is only one “… Number that really counts – the Integer, the One, the Spirit that we are – That’s What counts and That is What I Honor and Walk with when I stay in My Integrity.”

Please use one of the many Tools For Living Free, a double-sided educational publication, made available at cosmostree.org under “Resources”. Start with #16 titled “Being Present In The Moment”; read it and do the exercises often! Please note, too, that while this Tool will help you Lift and Grow and is therefore very important in your Spiritual Growth, to be Truly Present with Spirit/The Integer/In Integrity, you need to request and be Given Initiation Into The Sound Current, a Precious Gift Given by My Teacher/the Lord, God. Through Initiation, you have direct access to the Spirit you are/The Lord, God. For more information, please feel free to visit spiritcentral.org at Initiation.

As the holiday season winds down, I notice that a lot of people I know are sick with severe colds. As Dr. Lane Teaches, colds come from “being cold to yourSelf.”

How to Stay Neutral In Stressful Situations

I think most would agree my life right now seems “stressful”. I’m eight months pregnant with my fourth child; just sold and packed up my house; and moved my family into my parents’ home while we wait to close on the new home we purchased. Did I mention that my brother and his family of four are also living with my parents while he waits to close on his new home? That’s 6 adults, 5 toddlers, a dog and baby on the way… It’s been hectic to say the least!

I’d like to share a few tips on how I use the Tools available through Cosmos Tree to remain Neutral through this situation. Tools that you too can use to find Neutrality in your life:

The Meditation Transformation: A Miracle In A Month

I’ve been hosting Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High at the Cosmos Tree Home Center for many years; and on a regular basis I see Souls transformed – and transformed in such short periods of time that I Know it’s truly a Miracle.

Knowing: How To Listen To Your True Self!

What do I do when I don’t know what to do about a situation? I turn inside mySelf to the greatest resource and comfort that there is, the Soul within. Maybe there is a relationship in my life that I have chosen to be troubled over. I might be worried about money or a health condition of a loved one. Up until recent years, my instinct and immediate response has been to follow the concern down the rabbit hole and chew on all the negative scenarios that could possibly unfold until I am sufficiently tied up in knots. At times I’ve had restless nights of sleep, obsessively returning thoughts paired with ravenous emotions that eat at me. Through my choices into this negativity I thwart my ability to see solutions, observe things objectively and have a Spiritual Perspective on life.

The True Role Of A Parent

In the Fall of 2008, I began participating in Cosmos Tree Meditations and studying with Founder and Director, Dr. Roger B. Lane. At the time, I was married but did not have any children. I had no idea how much I did not know about mySelf or about being a parent. Before having children, I was certain that my own experience with my parents and the babysitting jobs I held throughout my life were preparation enough to raise my own. Blessedly for me, by the time I did have children I had a foundation of The Teachings that inform Cosmos Tree, Which every day assist me in being the best parent I can be by Teaching me how to be the Spirit that I am.

How To Make A “Difficult” Choice: Choosing With Spirit

Recently, I was faced with a “difficult” choice. I learned through using the Tools available to me from Cosmos Tree and its Founder, Dr. Roger B. Lane, that I exercise my power by choosing. Really, we all have power. I’d like to share why the choice seemed “difficult” and what it meant for me to take control of the situation and be in my power.

How To Live A Vibrant Life!

Can’t get over the hump, cross that first bridge you are staring down, let go of the end of the rope you’ve tethered yourself to for staying in the shallows? Many of us wonder when our dull lives become the lives we envisioned ourselves leading. We make resolutions – empty promises – gripe about the blockades in our way and feel somehow disempowered and disenfranchised from the life, the excitement, the fulfillment and the peace that we really want. How do we move from stuck to living a vibrant life that beats true to the drum of our innermost heart?

Why Meditate?

When people learn that I have a devoted, daily Meditation practice they look at me with an expression that melds interest, desire, repulsion and recognition. It is like they are shocked because, after all, I look so normal. How could someone Spiritual be shopping at Barney’s New York and be jovial at cocktail parties? I’m often quizzed about this ancient art and am asked again and again, “Why Meditate?”

Visiting Cosmos Tree

“The environment at Cosmos Tree is one of love and acceptance. There is a professionalism with which I am greeted that is gentle and reassuring for what I need to do in a new activity, in an unknown place. I am encouraged to “leave my cares and concerns” while removing my shoes and to “enter into a state of quiet and receptivity”. I know I am in a Sacred Space.
