Topic: Working With Spirit (More is Really Less)
January 10, 2015







Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE - Wisdom for Your Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. We've got a very relevant topic today: "Working With Spirit" - otherwise known as "More Is Really Less". But before we get to the topic, just a few announcements. If you haven't heard already there is the Valentine's Day Spirit of Love Cruise. Starting from Los Angeles we'll be sailing on the Mexican Rivera from February 14 until the 21. That is a week-long Spirit of Love Cruise. Come join us, learn about Soul Mate Relationships. You don't need to be in a relationship, come find your soul mate relationship. And also we're going to be celebrating Hans' birthday during this cruise, so come join us sailing down the Mexican Riviera.

Hans:
Re-tweet our tweet?

Alfred:
Yes. It's call re-tweeting.

Hans:
I have no idea what you just said.

Alfred:
Yes. Re-tweeting Hans.

Hans:
Thank you.

Alfred:
You actually have sent out some tweets, Hans. Hans does tweet on occasion.

Hans:
Yes. I have. I do tweet but I didn't know you could forward tweets.

Alfred:
Yes, you can forward tweets. It's called "re-tweeting" - and you can forward Facebook Posts which is called "sharing". 

Hans:
Aaahhh...

Alfred:
I think these are actually going to be in the Dictionary if they're not in there already. Re-tweeting. Can you imaging seeing re-tweeting in the Dictionary, Hans?

Hans:
(Laughing) No, I can't.

Alfred:
(Laughing)

Hans:
Not from my generation, we can't.

Alfred:
What's the name of that bird that copies other birds? A Mockingbird?

Hans:
Myna bird... Well besides Parrots.

Alfred:
Yes. So I guess that's the original version of re-tweeting. The bird that copies other birds. (Laughing)

Hans:
Very good.

Alfred:
So off to our topic for today "Working With Spirit" - otherwise known as "More is Really Less". Hans, as you know, people are normally stressed out and we're trained in this world to do more and more. Why don't you talk about the possibility that you can do more by doing less?

Hans:
Well it's so true, isn't it? You know, I mentioned a little bit ago about my generation... We were not trained, neither the media or magazines or anything to be fearful, we weren't trained that we're not enough unless we have more, we were not trained in such a way that we were taught to devalue ourself by looking at people who suddenly are successful, therefore better then we are. None of this happened. And if you go to peaceful and calm countries, you will find it doesn't happen there either. So what we need to look at is: What disturbs our ease, what disturbs our peace? For many of us, it's watching television. For many of us, it's being so involved with our work that we become what we're doing. 

This is a really big issue, folks. Because so many people I know, their entire life, in one form or another, revolves around their work. And what they don't realize is that one day, whether they like it or they don't, it goes away completely. And if you haven't set a strong foundation of love for yourself, possibilities for yourself, possibilities in  your life, then you are left dangling in the wind basically. So before that happens, we try to teach you is that the less you follow this constant  harangue of news...is remember news organizations are not only there to report what appears to be news, they're there to manufacture the news. All the pundent shows are nothing more than someone else's opinion. That's it. And we tend to buy into the fear. And so, as Alfred was saying, less...the less fear, the less worrisome you are, the lighter and the higher you go. Alfred, how did that work for you?

Alfred:
Well that was a really tricky one to get into the habit of realizing by doing less you're actually doing more. And quite simply put, by being peaceful, you can more easily find the flow, that we've talked about previously, the energy that supports your life. You can find what things you're being guided "to" if you're not listening to your mind. You can actually listen to energy, you can listen to vibration, you can listen to your Guidance. Because they're on the Other Side working on your behalf. And you basically have two choices - do what you think is correct, which creates a disconnect energy from the Other Side - or be peaceful and listen to what the Other Side is doing on your behalf. So you can actually get more done by doing less.

Hans:
Yes. That's the key. And it doesn't mean, children, that you should not be responsible for what you put yourself in charge of - your family, your children, your spouse. It doesn't mean you shouldn't be responsible to your job. What it means is all of that is an add-on to your life. You are the source of everything else that you are part of. So you have to keep that source in very, very good condition. Not to worry, not to do things that disturb your ease, to go for walks, to watch sweet fun movies. Saw a movie the other night called "Love Absolutely" and it was a wonderful fun film. I recommend it to all of you. And just having an awareness that you're already enough and that nothing out there, all those ads, all that stuff that they talk about, none of that will ever make you better. And folks that includes going from making $30,000 a year to making $300,000 a year will not make you better than you already are. Because all of that is an illusion. The houses, the cars, all of this is an illusion. It's something that you've created.

There are two things here, you can create a luxury lifestyle simply because you love the sense of it. You love a beautiful car, you love a beautiful house. That's fine. Because that's what you do, that's not who you are. But if you acquire these things to be better, to show that you are someone, to say look at me I've made it, then you've lost the entire game. And you have to dig deep inside of your heart and say do I really need this. Do I need this dress? I have some dear clients who I'm very fond of who have turned their work into their everything. Totally. Everything. They are totally stressed out all the time because their handlers, their managers, don't live up to their expectations of what is needed and they are fearful, and they become angry and disillusioned. None of it is important. And you say, well Hans you just can't walk away from your job you've had for 25 years. That's very true. But you can change your expectations. Lower your expectations. Alfred, you went through that didn't you?

Alfred:
Yes, because most of the time when we have expectations, they're from a human perspective - what we think we should have in our life, what other people have told us we should have in our life, what the media tells us we should have in our life, what our neighbors have in their lives. Those expectations take us away, distract us from the real reasons that we came here. And that's a real mind-bender is to realize that, on purpose, you don't remember why you came here. However, those on the Other Side do remember why you came here, they do remember what you wanted to experience, and by trusting, having faith, believing that there is this structure in the Universe, they can guide you by listening, by getting in touch with the flow, by doing the inner work, they can guide you to that which you wished to experience. Anything else, anything human, will take you away, will separate you from that. So that's another way to understand how to work with Spirit is by letting go of the human aspect of expectations, what your humanness believes you should have in your life. You get in touch with the Other Side in order for them to guide you “to” that which you truly wish to experience for this lifetime.

Hans:
Absolutely. I know so many people, my friends, with incredible wealth. Wealth that would shock you. I don't know one of them who's happy. You always hear this and say well how can this be true? So many people believe that more is better. More is better. But it isn't. Hugging your kitty or your dog or your spouse, sitting by a lake, going for a walk in the park, this is better. And if you turn your income over to the Spirit, one way or the other they will help you to get through. Everyone has had a huge sense of loss during this recession which is now beginning to wind down. When I was asked back in 2008, 2009 how long would this last, the Spirit said until 2015. And everybody looked at me and they said oh no, that would never happen, never go that long, that's longer than the Great Depression. And I said it is. This is the Great Recession. And here we are now, we're getting ready to go into 2015, things are turning around, they have turned around, we have a good stock market, gas prices have come down...that while that's very good news for so many people, you also children, must remember all the people now who are loosing their jobs, who are suffering, the restaurants that cater to the oil rig workers, all of this was based on $80 oil. Well, we don't have that anymore. So the big companies have to adjust themselves and unfortunately who gets hurt is always it's the working person. So let our hearts go out to those people, knowing that in time it will turn around for them and God loves them so. Okay? So for everything you have, sometimes you have to give up. That's normally what happens. Alfred, what was your biggest, kind of throwing Alfred a curve ball here, what was your biggest surprise when you gave up some of the control and the dynamics of the changes you were making. What was that sense? What was that fear?

Alfred:
Well first of all so many of us are taught that you get what you negotiate, you get what you manipulate, you get what you control, and that's a very human aspect of looking at things. It's a very stressful, low vibration way of looking at things and so many of us were very successful at being like that. Being successful in human terms. However many of us know when you're stressed out of your mind trying to control your life, you're pretty much miserable. And that was the big revelation to me to say if I'm so successful why am I so stinking miserable and stressed out of my mind? If you look at that in a different way, if you look at it as surrendering your problems in a spiritual sense, you are no longer putting energy towards those things that are causing you problems and that was one of the most massive, life-changing revelations was the more you work on your problems, the more you put energy towards those problems, the more you give your problems away to the Other Side and let go of them, all of a sudden this spiritual sense, they disappear.

Hans:
Alright, listen, this is so critical what you just said. I can hear people saying yes Alfred but how do you find the courage to let go?

Alfred:
It's like everything else we tell you about. Try it. Just try it. The worst case scenario is you go back to the way that you were. Try it for a month, try it for a couple of weeks.

Hans:
Where do people go to look for the courage?

Alfred:
I think we have a couple of topics that are like $3 or $4 for Spiritual Courage, actually. Think we did that a couple of months ago.

Hans:
Yes. It's so important the way you're wording this because people give lip service sometimes to an idea that they have, or a belief system that they think they believe in, but when it comes time to actually let go, the fear comes up about what if I fail, what if it isn't true, what if what I'm practicing really isn't real? And all this fear comes up. That's why I like this book so much with Jerry Jampolsky when he said “face the fear and do it anyway”. So that's kind of what you're saying right now is face the fear and do it anyway.

Alfred:
I think it was Eleanor Roosevelt who said “you must do the thing you think you can't do”.

Hans:
Absolutely. Always, always. Because what you will find is the power of you thinking you can't do it is the power that motivates you to the successful completion of that task.

Alfred:
So it's all about where you place your energy, where you place your focus. The reality is where you place your energy and focus is what is prevalent in your life. And by not placing energy, by surrendering those problems in your life...I cannot tell you the massive life-shift to place your attention on what is going good in your life which is gratefulness and letting go of those things in my life that weren't working and within months which weren't working disappeared. And it just shocked me. And all of a sudden the things that were working were working really, really good.

Hans:
Yes. 

Alfred:
And was disappeared was the stress. All of a sudden the energy to work on the things that weren't working wasn't needed, the stress that weren't working wasn't needed, and all of a sudden you're in this happy, blissful state of being grateful for that which is working and your entire life changes.

Hans:
Yes, it does because you've been living in a capsule of fear.

Alfred:
Yes. So what we're telling you is change your perspective about how to go about life. Really.

Hans:
You know folks, you've heard me say, and I repeat this every once in awhile, and I'll say to you: Don't tell me what you want to do. I'm not interested in what you want to do. Now doesn't that sound cruel? But it isn't. You've used the word "want" which is a disconnect energy. But if you say: This is what I'm going to do. I'll sit there and talk to you all night long. Because that a positive energy to a positive thought. So when you talk about what I want to do, you're actually saying: I'm not certain...it'd be nice...gee I hope, and all of that is a disconnect energy. And what we want you all to understand is: Yes, you can. Anything you can put your mind to, you can do. Yes, sometimes you say oh my goodness, how long is it going to take me; I've been working on this forever. Sometimes we get in front of our own energy time. But I have seen the most remarkable things anyone can imagine in my career from people who started behind, who had nothing, no money, nothing. And become these incredible painters, entrepreneurs, poets, writers, you name it. Because they got "I want to" out of their way and got the "I'm going to" into its place and you all can do the same. Don't let society pull you down. Don't allow that. 

All those pretty girls you see in those magazines, all those muscular men you see in those magazines, all those big houses...all disappear. All of it disappears. The only thing that remains is your soul. And if you are blessed with say more than some others, thank Spirit every day, try not to create problems for yourself. There are others who may try to cause you problems. It's none of your concern. You find peace and bliss. Okay? Yes, Alfred, any more on this particular subject you want to talk about?

Alfred:
No, that's about it.

Hans:

Alrighty, that will complete the lesson for today.

Topic: New Year's Intentions
January 4, 2015








Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR LIFE - Wisdom for Your Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. Before we get onto the topic for today "New Year's Intentions", some Announcements - the big event that's coming up is February - the week of Valentine's Day. We're going to be sailing from Los Angeles down to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta on the "Love Cruise". If you're looking for that special person in your life, looking to re-ignite that passion in your life, join Hans King and several other spiritual practitioners to learn about preparing yourself, and readying yourself, and finding your soul mate. That's the "Love Cruise" happening the week of February 14 which happens to be when Hans will have his birthday. So come and join us on the "Love Cruise" and celebrate Hans King's birthday. And of course you can find out more about what's happening on Facebook, Twitter and our Event Calendar. And we really appreciate it when you "like" us and "follow" us on Facebook and Twitter and especially we appreciate when you "share" what we're going on Facebook and Re-tweet what we're doing on Twitter. We do no traditional advertising so we rely on you to share the word on what we're doing and recommend us to your friends. If Hans King has touched your life, we'd appreciate if you'd just pass that along to other people because that's how we get the word out.

Hans:
Listen real quick...just something real quick Alfred. I wanted to thank everyone who, after watching my Video for the New Year's on Facebook, the comments that came in, just hundreds of them, I think there were like 1500 in one 12 hour period or something, I just want to say thank you all so much, it makes and old heart feel very young and again bless you all for those.

Alfred:
So over to our "New Year's Intentions" topic, I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Happy New Year everyone. I hope that you had a joyous and happy holiday season. And from our house to you, the best for this coming year. You know so many times I hear people talk about their New Year's Resolutions rather than their New Year's Intentions. I have a feeling inside of me that New Year's Resolutions sort of bind us. And then at the end of the year we punish ourself and are disappointed with ourself for not having lived up to those Resolutions. Folks, don't do that. Why don't we change that to "New Year's Intentions"? My intention in this coming year is to have an experience of the following - something like that. So that you give yourself the opportunity to allow Spirit to come in and work with you with those intentions rather than literally making sort of a demand from the Spirit by New Year's Resolutions - I'm going to do this and I'm going to do that. Folks, you don't know what the New Year holds for you. You don't know what the energies are for this year or where you're going. But, there is a divine flow of energy between you and Spirit that if you say: I would like the experience of...my intentions are the following... I'd like the experience of these intentions. Then you give Spirit an opportunity or a chance to begin to open a series of doors for you that those experiences, in one fashion or another, can be brought to you. And by the end of the year, you look back and say: Wow, look what happened. And you're not so bound by that narrow parameter that you've given yourself on your Resolutions. So I want you to change your Resolutions to Intentions. What do you think, Alfred?

Alfred:
The way I like to look at Resolutions is “I have this Resolution”, is “I'm going to do this”. And as we know, when you use the word "I" you isolate yourself through your humanness. Intention is “I am working with the universe, I have the intention, put the energy forth, have the vibration of this happening in my life and if it is for my highest good or whichever shape or form is for my highest good, then I agree to work with Spirit in order to create that, manifest that into my life”. So the big difference from my point of view is Resolutions about what "you" as an individual human can do, but intentions follow spiritual principles of course - are you working "with" the universe for your highest good? 

Hans:
Absolutely, Alfred. You know folks, this is a wonderful time of the year to begin anew. To set those Intentions. To try new things, to open ourself up to all kinds of new possibilities. We must not go backwards to go forwards. That wonderful song that Dionne Warwick sang about 40 years ago and she said: And a fool will loose tomorrow reaching back for yesterday. “Let all of those things that have been go". If there was love, pull them forward. If there was a teaching that you felt really helped you, pull it forward. Let the rest go. Clear a space in your heart and in your head for Spirit to present you with wonderful new opportunities. And since you are in charge of the type of opportunities you would like to see happen, then their job is to follow through with those doors that I talk about. Doors being of course, opportunities. People call them "windows of opportunities", I call them "doors of opportunities". It doesn't make any difference, same thing. 

But sometimes we get caught in the guilt of not living up to our New Year's Resolutions and we think: Ooop, there I didn't do it again this year. Oh, you know can't hold it. Shame on me. Don't do any of that. If you did have New Year's Resolutions last year and they didn't happen, laugh at it, giggle at it, poke fun at it. Don't punish yourself. Don't say: Well, I'm not strong enough, or I can't do it. No, no, no. This year we're going to wipe the slate clean. We're going to say: Okay, my intention in this coming year is to feel the following. And one of the Intentions that I say that I feel is very helpful for me, is I say: In this coming year, I would like to feel and have the intention of feeling love. And since love comes in many forms you open yourself up to all kinds of wonderful new things. It can be a lover, a loved one, it could be an animal, it could be bliss, it could be flowers. This is all kinds of wonderful forms of love. And in your Intentions include that one. Let love into your life in all of its form and you will find how peaceful you become in this New Year. Alright, Alfred, when did you start realizing that Intentions and Resolutions or however you want to call it, were completely different?

Alfred:
Again, a lot of it has to do with your opinion of what you think you would like in your life because us, as humans, on purpose, by design, don't know what we wanted in our life, we don't know, we don't remember what we asked to experience before we came here.

Hans:
No, that's correct.

Alfred:
Okay. It's through the inner search that we can connect who we truly are in order to feel and become aware of that which is for our highest good. Resolutions are all about what our humanness thinks we should do.

Hans:
Exactly.

Alfred:
Quit smoking, you know, things like that.

Hans:
My resolution is I'm going to loose 10 pounds.

Alfred:
Okay. Intentions, so much focus on the spiritual principles of working with the Other Side, of surrendering what possibilities you might imagine, trusting that the Other Side has your best interest at heart, believing that they know what you asked for, having faith that what arrives is according to your highest good, and then being grateful that which arrives, that which is in your life, that which may  not be in your life, regardless of whether you understand it or not. All of these are spiritual principles and Intentions lead us down that direction and as we've been saying time and time and time again, the simplest changes such as changing your perception about something can lead to the greatest life changes. So what we're talking about now is the perception difference between Resolutions and Intentions.

Hans:
Yes, absolutely. In your New Year's Intentions, say something like this: My intention is to love myself more this year than last year. My intention is to be kind to myself. My intention is not to find fault in myself. My intention is to find love. And again folks, remember that love comes in many, many different forms and expressions. So, let's change Resolutions to Intentions and watch how much changes between now and next New Year's. I think you'll be absolutely surprised.

Alfred:
And that's a wonderful point Hans, is Resolutions really focus on human aspects.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Okay. And Intentions really also touch on aspects of abundance, such as the abundance of love, the abundance of family, the abundance of friendship, the abundance of joy, the abundance of peace, harmony. All of those aspects you can have the intention to have in your life. So again when you're looking at your New Year's Intentions, look at it from a spiritual perspective. Look at it as if to say: If I was a spiritual being, what would be in my life all the time? I'd be connected, I'd have a high vibration, I'd pay attention to my Guidance, I'd go with the flow. All of those can be in your Intentions.

Hans:

Thank you Alfred, that's beautiful. Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today because I understand we have quite a few questions today.

GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show

Topic: Holiday Peacefulness
December 28, 2014






Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE - Wisdom for Your Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. We are continuing on our theme of "Holiday Peacefulness". That's actually the topic - "Holiday Peacefulness". How do you have peace and joy during the holidays and keep that peace and joy throughout the rest of the year? But before we jump into our topic, we have a couple of Announcements. Again, Hans Christian King will be doing an "Evening with Hans" at the Agape Center in Los Angeles, January 18. We'll get that up on the website as soon as we can. We're just waiting for a link from Agape to tell you about registration and exactly when it's going to be. But set the date aside. If you are in Los Angeles, or near Los Angeles, that Sunday, January 18, consider coming to see Hans Christian King talk at the Agape International Spiritual Center. And also, join us for the "Spirit of Love Cruise" that's leaving Los Angeles going to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. There will be Hans Christian King himself talking about "Spiritual Relationships” and “Soul Mate Relationships". Plus a lot of other people who are going to be discussing how to find your soul mate. So if you're looking for that special person, this will be the week of Valentine's Day. You can find our more about the "Spirit of Love Cruise" by going to HansKing.com and under Spiritual Community, check out our Event Calendar. So if you're looking for that special soul mate, join us for the "Spirit of Love Cruise" Valentine's weekend.

Hans:
Oh folks, I thought I would share something with you about the "Love Cruise". The "Love Cruise" will actually be the day before my birthday! And we can all have a grand time on my birthday together. I was told to say this by a dear client of mine. (Hans laughing) She said don't you forget to tell them it's your birthday. So my birthday is February 15. The Cruise leaves on the 14th, so many blessings of love and light.

Alfred:
So for our topic "Holiday Peacefulness", we all know holidays are a great time to face the hard choices of participating in family drama, or living in a space of non-judgment and unconditional love. So Hans, can you tell people how to look at family members and just love them just the way they are?

Hans:
One of the things, Alfred, that I recommend that people do is remember the excess mind chatter on this particular subject. And so before you go into an event where the people are present, you need to be very still. Sit down, be very still. And say: I choose this day not to listen to my mind chatter. I choose this day to no longer be wounded, to be hurt by past memories with this family. I choose to take today and turn my life around by accepting them just as they are. Not reacting to anything that is said, just blessing them. You don't have to say that out loud. But you don't have to respond to anything that's said either. You can always say: I choose to be peaceful. It will make them crazy. But it's very contagious actually, Alfred.

Alfred:
Okay. So Hans can you tell people how to let go of the need to fix family members? We really love our family, we want them to be as happy as we are, but what are the ways we could just let the family members be?

Hans:
What if you found out guys, all of you, what if you found out that there wasn't anything wrong? What if you found out it was your perception that was making the other person wrong? The other person doesn't think they're wrong. You do. So what if you just loved them and accept them? You may not agree with their behavior, my friends. But having no judgment is offering love, basically. So if you just love your family, with no judgment, don't try to fix anyone. Be that light you want to see in the world. Be that change you want to see in your family. And you'll be amazed when people say: You don't seem to be angry anymore. Say: No, I'm not. And they will say: Well how did you do that? I found love in my heart for everyone. And that's hard to do, my friends, because we have so many memories of who did what to who and when and who can sit next to who and who shouldn't be invited... All that stuff is humanness. All that stuff, all the anger is all humanness. That's the absence of God in your thinking. That's the absence of Spirit in your actions. Because the truth of the matter is none of them are wrong. It's your perception of what went on that caused you to have a judgment. But what you can't do is sit inside of them and listen to what they say about you and that they think you have a judgment. So by simply putting love in the place of judgment, and acceptance in the place of anger, all of the pain begins to dissipate. 

I had a dear lady client that I had known for over 25 years and she hadn't been home to see her family in 20. And she had all of these reasons about what her brother and sister did to her, what her father and mother did to her, and she had magnified this so out of true proportions that she never went back to the family and every year she didn't go back she reminded herself of why she wasn't going and she built it and she built it and she built it. And Spirit said to her: This year you're going back. We request that you go back with no judgment and only love in your heart. She said: They'll tear me to shreds. And Guidance said to her: No, only you can do that. They will not tear you to shreds. She went and she called me before she got on the plane in San Francisco, she was going to New Jersey, she called me, she said: I'll never make this. And I said: Go. She went. And she said before she went into the room she did the exercise that we gave her and she said when she went in people ran up to her and hugged her. Her mother cried, her father cried, brother and sister cried, they loved on her. We have missed you so. Where have you been? What did we do that ever made you so upset? She said: I never would have believed it. Even when Hans, you told me, I couldn't bring myself to believe it. I had caused all of the pain in my own heart. Folks, when you go to be with friends and people that you think there's a problem with, put love in your heart, put Spirit in your actions, you'll be amazed at what happens.

Alfred:
And this is what we want to get to is all of these inner peace practices. Start them during the holidays - non-judgment, letting go of the past, being an example of your beliefs, going within. All of these things we've been talking about, start them during the holidays but apply them to everybody. And that's really difficult. But if you can do them with your family...

Hans:
You can do it with anybody.

Alfred:
...you can do it with anybody. That's the point. Don't just do non-judgment, letting go of your past during the holidays. Let's talk about doing this...

Hans:
Let this be the platform for the rest of your life.

Alfred:
Exactly, for the rest of the year...

Hans:
Or for the rest of your life.

Alfred:
This is the way to give yourself the greatest gift possible - inner joy, happiness and peace, all year round. What do you think about that Hans?

Hans:
I think it's perfect because it's true. And what I'm trying to teach you tonight is our perceptions become oftentimes our worst enemies. Our perceptions become anger, fear, doubt, judgment. Our perceptions are nothing more than a filter that we have put in front of us so that we don't get hurt and we view through that. I remember, if all of you remember, the movie "Auntie Mame" for instance, with Rosalind Russell. What a fun, wonderful Christmas movie. In fact I'm going to watch it tomorrow as I do every holiday. But they decided to make it into a movie and for reasons unknown to anyone, they decided not to use Rosalind Russell but they decided to use Lucy. Now an incredible actress of her own and there's no doubt whatsoever. But she insisted, absolutely insisted, that they shoot her through gauze. And it was fuzzy and cloudy and my dear friend Hal King was the make-up artist for her for over 25 years. And he said they made it almost impossible to almost see her. That's what her perception said she wasn't good enough the way she was. She wasn't perfect. So she needed to shoot that through the gauze. 

What I'm saying to you is you do not need any filter between you and love. You already are love. You are already the best you will ever be for God. For those of you who are alone this year, and there are millions of you, this is an opportunity to remind yourself that in fact you are not alone. In fact your god doesn't love anyone more than you as you hear me say each week. Find something to do that makes you smile. Back in the day Alfred used to say: Go find a flower and just look at it. There's such beauty in the flower. It doesn't have to demonstrate who it is, it radiates who it is. And if you're alone, it's a terrible word, I don't like that word, but if you're not with someone or a group, a family, that's the opportunity of a lifetime that a lot of spiritual people miss. The value of being by yourself during major events in your life so that you can look in that mirror. You know I used to give workshops about 25 years ago, and I would hand everybody who came to the workshop a mirror. And one of the exercises was I want you to look in this mirror and then tell me who you see. Do you know that most people, my dear friends, could not do it. And that was our opening round, that really scared them. Most people could not tell me who they saw in that mirror until one little old lady in one class said it all. Every bit of 80, and she had followed me for many, many years, and she looked in the mirror, she held it up to her face on the side, and she says: Hans, I see love. And I said: Margaret, that's the answer. I see love. Folks, when you go to that mirror before you go anywhere, or present yourself for an interview for a job, before you go home to the family that's all screaming and hollering at each other, go look in the mirror and present yourself Love. That is who you are. It doesn't matter what anybody else sees or anybody else thinks. So, in the moment, when you have it, Alfred likes to refer to it as a dysfunctional organization - your family, find the joy and the humor in who they are and the love in who you are by loving them anyway. Okay?

Alfred:
And Lord knows if you can learn to be just pure love around your family, which the majority of old souls have "interesting" families, if you can do that, then you can be love with anyone.

Hans:
Something in that wonderful thing that was written by Anonymous - somewhere in there he or she writes "If you can keep your head when everything and everyone else around you is loosing theirs... " And I thought, yeah. If you can do that, you just found your peace. And folks, when you find your love, you find your peace. 

Alfred:
So the holidays are just a wonderful opportunity to...

Hans:
All around, yes.

Alfred:
...practice love, practice patience, unconditional love, non-judgment - the basics. To practice them with your family...

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
...and then continue to practice them for the rest of the year. That's what we're telling you is the way inner peace and happiness.

Hans:

Alfred, you brought something up a little bit ago that I think is really important for everybody to hear and then I came in and sort of expounded on it a little. Folks, what we're teaching you today should not be a once a year occurrence. It should be "always". Starting with I am this and I will be this and this is how I'm going to operate out for the rest of this year and the rest of my life. So use the catalyst of the holidays perhaps to broaden your understanding a little here and  then carry that throughout the year and throughout your life. I want to take this opportunity to say to everyone, look forward to this New Year. Be ever so grateful of the one you just had. For many of you many prayers that you had prayed for, did come true. For many of you, some of your worst fears came true. However, remember now that it's done. That was then, this is now. And make a promise to yourself to discover more of who you are. Learn to spend a little more time with yourself. Learn to be less judgmental, especially towards people who don't live up to decent expectations that you have, like friendship and warmth and love. Have no judgment of them because you don't know who they actually are. Even though they could be your sister, your brother, your mother, your father, you don't know inside of them who they really are. Bless them. Ask Spirit to bring them everything they need to discover who they are and to make their life of value. Okay, Alfred I think that will conclude the topic for today.

Topic: Family and Friends During the Holidays – Handling Differences
December 22, 2014






Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE - Wisdom for Your  Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan Learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. We have a heck of a topic today "Family and Friends During the Holidays - Handling Differences". But before we get into the topic, just a couple of announcements. We will be in Los Angeles for an Evening with Hans King, January 18 at the Agape International Spiritual Center. That's Reverend Michael Beckwith's place. Hans will be talking about "Walking Between Two Worlds". Again, that's January 18. Also coming up in February is the "Love Cruise". We'll be taking you on a one week cruise to the Mexican Rivera - starting in Los Angeles, going down Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta. During that time, not only Hans, but other people will be talking about "Relationships" - "Soul Mate Relationships". And for you guys, there's going to be single women. So if you're looking for a relationship, man or a woman, come aboard the Love Cruise. For more information of course, you can see our Event Calendar.

Hans:
Have we become a Dating Service now?

Alfred:
Wouldn't that be cool? In spiritual relationships... 

Hans: (Laughing)

Alfred: It's got to start somewhere.

Hans:
It does. 

Alfred:
You can, of course, find our more about us and what's going on in the Event Calender on HansKing.com. Under HansKing.com, Spiritual Community, under Event Calender. Or you ought to "like" us on Facebook, get our Announcements and get Daily Quotes from Hans King. And of course we sincerely appreciate when you "share" our Daily Quotes or anything that we're doing on Facebook or re-tweet us on Twitter. It's really up to you to help us spread the word. We do no traditional advertising and sincerely appreciate when you help us get the word out about what we're doing, trying to be of service to others.

Hans:
I would like to reach out to every single person who listens to our show, who is a member of our show, and send them Holiday Greetings and Best Wishes. I want to thank every single person who's listening today for all the kindness, the generosity of Spirit, of resources, that have been sent to us to help us to continue to do our show. I wish you so much love and happiness at this Holiday Time and remember what I always try to teach you: Is you are very important to Spirit, no matter where you make think you are at this time. Alfred?

Alfred:
And I want to wish everyone an absolutely wonderful, loving and peaceful, internally peaceful, Holiday Season and an absolutely prosperous, wonderful, loving, spiritual 2015. Thank you all for being here with us. Thank you all for "sharing" and re-tweeting that which we do. We can't tell you how much it really means to us that you love and are willing to "share" that, which we do, our service, in order to help us reach out to help more people. Thank you all.

So our topic for today "Family and Friends During the Holidays". How do we handle those differences? Hans, why don't we talk about dealing with family members and friends who may not be on a spiritual path. How do you talk about things?

Hans:
First of all, you don't point out how wrong they are. Remember, they're entitled to be where they are, and they're entitled to have their opinions. And it's not our job, it's not your job folks, to try to change them. Mahatma Gandhi once said: Be the change you want to see in the world. So that's what's important. Do not debate your truth. Do not try to convince anybody of your truth. If someone were to say to you: How did you get where you are? How did you become so peaceful? That's another matter. Explain it as best you can without coming from a place that says I am correct and you are wrong. Explain who you are and how you arrived at your peace, and it's from that place that they have an opportunity to grow. Not by lecturing them. Now, if somebody is ragging on you and saying:  You know what are you talking about? You don't know what you're talking about. You know here's the right way and all that... Remember what I've taught you all these years. Well, what do we say: Not my problem. That's they key. And trying to say: Not my problem, without having some guilt attached to it. Right, Alfred?

Alfred:
Yes, because they are family and that's the real issue is how can we spiritual speakers talk to them? Be there for family members, listen to our brothers and sisters, our parents point of view, and still love them knowing they are on a different path than what we're at. And one of the most basic, fundamental, life-changing lessons is "have no opinion"...

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
... "have no judgment".

Hans:
In other words, Alfred, I think what we're both trying to say is: Don't make them wrong. Let them have their own belief system. Do not argue your point. Say: Well, I love you and bless you where you are. This will drive them crazy for one thing. But it's very important that you're only there folks to help someone who asks to be helped. That's all. But you're going to have people out there in your family and in your daily life, your friends for instance, who basically are angry, who basically don't understand your point of view, or may be a little jealous of your position, or just who don't get you or just can't see you...and that could be a mother and a father or a brother..could be a best friend sometimes. But remember something, they're entitled to their opinion and it is not our job to change anyone. Let your light shine that others might see you and where you are and there will be people who would like to be part of that light. But getting confrontational, arguing with people, trying to help, wanting them to see your point of view - that is not your problem. That is their problem. Okay? Alfred, you can remember back when during the holidays, there were family gatherings. Remember some of the dysfunction during those times?

Alfred:
Oh, I'm sure there's so many people out there who remember, or still are going through, who can show up, who's not allowed to show up, and for those people who are showing up, who can sit next to who, who can sit across from who, who has to be separated from who, and actually having a serious discussion about that.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Yes.

Hans:
You know Alfred, when you first told me that, I have to tell you, I've never had that experience. I was absolutely shocked that your family couldn't let so-and-so sit across from so-and-so and they couldn't invite so-and-so or so-and-so wouldn't come. I was absolutely amazed. And I still am to this day that that is how people would treat this holiday.

Alfred:
But I think a lot of our listeners want to hear about how do you relate to relatives and friends that say and act in ways that are simply not truth - spiritual truth? How do you get along. Especially during the Holidays?

Hans:
Then basically you don't discuss it. If they wish to push you and they want to be confrontational, your job is to say: I love you and I respect your opinion. That's it. Do not engage them in the conversation because they are looking to pick a fight. They want their point of view to triumph. And the only way it can is if you agree to it. And if there's no place in you to agree to it, they will give up. Alfred, you have a wonderful statement that you say to people sometimes: I love you anyway.

Alfred:
Yes...

Hans:
There's a lot of power in that statement.

Alfred:
...and that's the thing to do is to just be love, Is just to be caring, is just to be helpful, is just to be there and be helpful, be caring, be loving, be as Hans was saying, inside yourself, be that example. But just not discuss this stuff. You show the example and be the example of what you believe. As much as possible, love everyone, care about everyone, try not to have an opinion. Just smile, just be peaceful regardless of what's going on, who's arguing about what, who's talking about who, your job is to stay peaceful.

Hans:
You just brought up one very important thing, Alfred. People will try to engage you about other people. You, yourself know this in your own family. And they will try to engage you - do you hear what so-and-so did? Can you believe that so-and-so did this or said this about some... Do not engage in gossip about others,  children. Because what they will say about others, they will say about you. Back away from it and always say to Spirit: Please bless them. Help them to find their way. Help them to find their light that is best for them. That's what I do folks. And folks I have wonderful clients out there, and you know who you are, who have terrible relationships with a family member. Sometimes that family member has the appearance they're trying to hurt you, trying to take something away from you. Many times because a parent or parents have died, there's an estate and oh my God, nothing tears a family up more than an estate and the rivalry that goes on. Even though you may be the most loving, caring, kind person, there may be somebody in your family who feels it's necessary to attack you and hurt you. That usually comes from a very sad and jealous place inside of themselves. But meanwhile, the appearance is they have the power to really hurt you emotionally. Always remember, no matter how hard it may be in that moment to say to Spirit: Bless that person, help them please, show them where they need to be, and let  the light shine on the subject we are engaged with, that we are involved with. Add the power of the light to it. Sometimes you don't see results right away. But over time, Spirit will bring the light, for sure. Remember light always follows darkness...always, okay? So use this as a time to rejoice the power within you and let the light of the Godforce, the light of Spirit to shine upon you. So this is an important time to learn to be peaceful in the appearance of craziness, in the appearance of dysfunction. You know this, right Alfred?

Alfred:
Yes, is not to believe what is going around, not to believe what other people say, not to fall into the trap of getting sucked into "drama". What someone supposedly did, what someone supposedly said, your job as a spiritual soul, is to be "peaceful", is not to have anything that's going on around you knock you off your center. Again one of the most basic teachings we've been going over, especially on this show, is what someone else says or does is not your problem.

Hans:
Is not your problem ever...

Alfred:
...it's if what someone else says or does, does knock you off your center, that is your problem.

Hans:
Absolutely Alfred, that's correct. What someone thinks about you is none of your business, but what you think of what they think of you should be very much your concern.

Alfred:
Or anyone...or your cousin, or your parents, or your uncles, or your aunts or your friends...

Hans:
Yes, it doesn't matter who it is. Exactly...

Alfred:
...whatever anybody says or does...

Hans:
...has nothing to do with you.

Alfred:
...about anybody else. It doesn't even have to do with you, it could be your brother's in a fight with an uncle, it's your mother says something about your cousin...

Hans:
Exactly. You know Alfred, a while back I was talking to a dear lady and she said to me: You know Hans, my mother said this and that about me and only the other day she said: Well, I was right, you're never going to amount to anything. And she said: This has wounded me so badly. And I said: Why? She said: Because of what she said. I said: But what she said has nothing to do with you. She said: Well, certainly, it was directed at me. I said: No, it wasn't. This was not a statement of who you are, angel. This is a statement of where she's at. No, they're two different things. Separate yourself from somebody's else's rage, separate yourself from somebody else's anger or opinion. It has nothing children, listen again, this has nothing to do with who you are. And there are times when it appears that God doesn't see us, God doesn't hear us, the Spirit has abandoned us when these people run amok and start hurting us. But therein is the lesson that you chose to learn. That lesson was to learn to rise above the appearance of the difficulty of the sadness. To be better than to be identified with that sort of behavior. Because again, as Alfred and I are pointing out to you, it has utterly nothing to do with you.

Alfred:
And notice what we're talking about here. Is we're talking about very basic spiritual principles. What we're saying is: Treat your family, treat your friends like the way you treat anybody else.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
The issue that we've seen year after year after year is people think well, they're family, these spiritual principles don't apply to them. Of course they're going to love me. Of course they're going to care. I don't understand why they're being mean. And that's where you get yourself in trouble...

Hans:
That's exactly true. You get yourself in trouble.

Alfred:
...is you apply these basic principles to your family and friends just like you do to  anybody else.

Hans:
You want to talk at this normal level. You want to be involved with them at the new level you've found. But they can't hear you, folks. They can't see who you are. So don't try. If somebody comes out from the shadows and said: I don't exactly know what you're talking about, but it feels good in my heart. Would you mind explaining a little to me? Absolutely, go for it. You can help anybody who asked to be helped. But if somebody has a judgment and then says: Help me.  Don't bother with them. Don't bother with them folks, move on. Let your light shine. Let your light show you the way. Because there is no relationship on earth that is more precious to you than you to you. That's the gift that God gave you. Because inside of each and every one of you lies the power of the Godforce, lies the power of the Spirit - you are connected at that level - always. And the only thing that can bring you down is your own consciousness. That's all. 

Alfred:
And one point I'd like to tell everyone... Well, what is that confusion, what is the feeling when you get confused to say: Well, they're my family. Of course they're supposed to love me. Of course they're supposed to support me. Of course they're supposed to be generous and loving and kind. And what happens to you in that internal conflict when they're not? What is going on here when you say: I don't understand this. They're supposed to be family and they're not. And so many of us get torn apart because something inside says: Well, they're supposed to be supportive and loving. How come they're tearing each other apart and being mean? 

Let me explain this in a very simple way. For those of you who are spiritual, you will find that inner deep “knowing” that your family and friends should be loving and caring and supportive and generous and always there. Okay? If they, themselves, are not spiritual, then it doesn't apply. However, what it does apply to is your family and friends in Spirit. They love you unconditionally. They are always there for you. They are there to support you and to guide you. And that is one of the hugest benefits of doing Automatic Writing is you form a relationship with those family and friends that you thought should always be there. And that's part of Intuitive Development is to get you a stronger relationship with those family and friends who are in Spirit and who understand: Yes, that's the way you're supposed to behave. You're always supposed to love everyone. You're always supposed to care. You're always supposed to be supportive. And that is what comes through when you form a relationship with your family and friends on the other side. Why? Because they're in Spirit. So if you have that instinct, and you're being torn apart, you have to realize the simple fact - those family members who are not spiritual, are not going to act that way.

Hans:
Alfred, do you remember any number of years ago when you finally heard the message that you are now giving others, for yourself and your family? Do you remember how things began to change?

Alfred:
Yes.

Hans:
When you stopped being hurt by actions from your family? 

Alfred:
Yes, and there's so many things that seem like basic spiritual teachings in this lesson, but if you go through and actually apply them, your life will change and these basic spiritual lessons of: Not my problem. Just be peaceful. Have no judgment of them. Just be loving. Be peaceful. This will change your life. I carried hell with me for 24 years about my family - how they abused me, how they abandoned me, how my life was ruined because of them. And then one day I woke up and said: Oh, that's not true. And all of a sudden, all that hate, that anger, that disappointment - dissolves.

Hans:
Absolutely.

Alfred:
Because it's not the truth. The truth is, it's not your problem, it's their problem.

Hans:
That is right. And kids, when you get that, and Alfred's about as thick-headed as you can get, sorry Alfred...

Alfred:
It's the truth.

Hans:

It's the truth. (Hans laughing) He's about as thick-headed as you can get and for him to get that... I watched his demeanor, I watched everything about him soften. And I watched the anger begin to dissolve. And I watched him have a resolve to not be hurt by this anymore. And folks, for all of you, there's going to be times when a mother or a father, a sister or a brother says and/or does things to you and deliberately intends to hurt you... It could even be a legal action, and deliberately intends to hurt you, defend yourself legally, but don't take it personally. That's the key. Don't let the statement of somebody else disturb your ease, disturb your peace, okay? Alrighty, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

So lots of reasons to follow what we're doing and lots of opportunities to see us. Hopefully we'll be teaching actually at Agape. We're working on that and we'll let you know as soon as we do. So the topic for this week's teaching is “The Law of Unconditional Love”. So without further ado I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Hello everybody. What a beautiful day today and we're so blessed to have God in our life. Today I want to talk about the Universal Law of Unconditional Love. This is a really difficult lesson because in our world, as we go through our daily lives doing all the things that we have put in motion to do, we come across situations, we come across people, circumstances, things, that just, may I say, just tick us off, make us upset, press our buttons...a friend says something that you thought was unkind, or a parent calls and tells you they were disappointed in you about something. And it's just really hard to just say: You know what, I love them, I bless them, I release my judgment of this. And folks, when we look at the news and hear all the things that are going on every day, it's hard to remember that we're in a world of illusion that has been created by mankind. There is no reality to what is going on. It's just different people's illusions of what should be. And of course when you turn on your television, what you have is a bunch of pundents, a bunch of people who surmise they know something, that they're going to tell you how it really is. But all it is is their opinion. Nothing more kids, nothing more. Simply their opinion. So the wonderful thing about unconditional love, if we put it in our heart, is that we begin to view life a bit differently. Okay? A bit differently. We say: Oh wait a minute, I'm not going there because I'm going to get a judgment in there and that's not what I want to do. That's not where I want to be. And so, when we learn to filter the appearance of reality, we stop being bothered and hurt by it. 

I had a friend who called me recently and she was very, very concerned because she thought I had said something. What she heard was that I was unhappy with her or displeased with her. And I had her go back and read the email that she sent me about her hurt. And I paused here for a moment. I said: Where you're saying this, where this is coming from, what is that for you? Did you hear me say those words? And she said: No, I didn't. But I thought the way you had written it was that you were displeased with me. I said: Well I'm a very big boy now and I'm capable of telling you if I'm displeased with you and I wasn't. But I wonder why you're coming from that place. Where in you, does what I was saying, turn into a condemnation? And so we sat down and we had a look at it. And what she saw was through her childhood, she had learned to view things a little bit askew because she couldn't figure out what was going on. And so her mind chatter simply made up what she perceives the reality might be. 

And there's an old saying that you have heard me say for many years that says: You see what you look for you know. And if you're slightly depressed, or there's a dark cloud hanging over you and you're walking around with it, you will see depressing things children. You will see it. If you're slightly depressed, nothing you're doing will seem like it fits, seem like it's real. But if you stop for a moment and you say: From this day forward, I'm deciding not to listen to anything but unconditional love. I'm going to give it and I'm going to be available for it. This brings up another problem. Because, Alfred, haven't you noticed that so many people find that maybe they're not good enough for unconditional love?

Alfred:
And it's really those aspects of mind chatter, of humanness, that take us away from our spiritual true selves. It's when we are as Spirit, expressing unconditional love as our natural state, but what really limits us is the mind chatter, the humanness of fear, of judgment, of doubt. Okay? It's those areas or basically any aspects of humanness that limit us from vibrating, from being as Spirit and from expressing unconditional love effortlessly.

Hans:
You know Alfred, in the Spirit there is no such thing as depression. There is only unconditional love, not conditional love. So we actually, Alfred, come from, our resource actually, is unconditional love.

Alfred:
Yes, it's our mind chatter, our humanness that puts conditions on the love. And the definition of unconditional is there is nothing. And that is true spirituality is there is no judgment, there is no opinion, there is no fear, there is no doubt. And it is by removing those things, by doing the inner work, that you're more able, more freely able, more effortlessly able to express unconditional love.

Hans:
Absolutely. You know Alfred, for many years one of my primary teachings has been: What if you found out that nothing was wrong? Absolutely nothing. That all the pain comes out of your mind's perception of what is real. Not what is real. Because the only reality is love. The only true reality is God. And the unconditional love that you have from the Spirit World is unconditional at all times. So any time you say to me: Well God must not love me or why isn't God protecting me... All this, all of these things, come out of a place of conditional love which is what your mind programs you to see. 

You know I had one parent who said to her daughter: You know if you loved me you wouldn't treat me this way. Well that child grew up that way. She grew up thinking she wasn't capable of giving unconditional love. I said: No, that's just only your mother's perception of who you are and what you're doing and saying. If we all go back and we look at how our behavior from 20 or 30 years ago, we're not that same person. As we have grown, the Spirit has grown with us and brought us forward. But they keep pointing out to us unconditional love. Unconditional love. This is the key of life. Unconditional love. Not being offended by someone else's thoughts. Not offending somebody else by our thoughts. Any time we start to develop a negative thought, we need to stop for a moment and say: Wait a minute. I don't really know this person. I'm judging their behavior. But then, am I judging them as well? I don't know them. I don't know where they've come from. Native American peoples used to say: Judge no man unless you walk a mile in his moccasins. Very true. I taught you for years folks that who somebody is and their behavior are always two different things. 

Folks, spiritual opinion as given to me is: That all is perfect. All is in perfect right order. Nothing is wrong. But our mind chatter is so active in pointing out this individual, or that situation, and then trying to comprehend somebody else's thinking, which is of course totally impossible. Deal with your own emotion. Alfred used to say, back in the day, when he was beginning to develop himself... One of the things Spirit told him to do was if you want to see perfect and unconditional love, go look at a flower. Remember that Alfred?

Alfred:
Absolutely and it is the separation of your true self from that which limits you. It is functioning as who you truly are that opens you. It is removing the mind chatter that has to do with fear, with judgment, with opinion, that allows you to more freely express yourself as who you truly are - as a loving spirit. These are the paths that we try to help you with in order to be happy here, more blissful, more loving on a daily basis.

Hans:
Every time I see someone who I think is in a difficult situation, I always say to Spirit: Bless that person please. Surround them in pure white light. Help them to understand whatever lesson there may be in this for them. And bring all that they need to them that they might discover who they are and to see past this illusion for themselves. That's really, really important. I tell the story of a young lady that I met may years ago in Carmel, California and she had wanted, very badly, to design fabrics I think, some of you have heard this before, and every time she designed a fabric, it looked like a batik from Bali. And one day her grandmother, she was 17 then, sent her to see me and in the process of her reading I said: You know you have some connection with Bali. And she said: Funny enough,  you know I've always wanted to go there and she said: I'm not certain why. And I pointed out that she had some connection with artwork and she said: Well I like to do batiks and she said: I feel that there's some connection but I don't know what it is. And I said: Well you won't discover it until you go to Bali. Well she says: Well I have no money for that Hans. I think I have $600.00 in my savings account. Right now that isn't going to happen, but it could happen one day perhaps. 

Well the grandmother heard the reading. Because in those days I used to tape them. Anybody remember taping? And she heard that and when the grand daughter, for her 18th birthday, the grandmother gave her a ticket and a two week all expense paid trip to Bali. And the girl came to see me and what Spirit said to her was: Keep your eyes and your ears open with no perception of finding anything. Just go and be. Well she did and she still lives there today. She married an Australian boy. She began to design fabrics and her fabrics sell at Neiman Marcus...all the big stores, all around the world. And she's very famous. And she sent me an email once and she said: All I needed to do was be quiet and accept the unconditional love that God was giving me at that moment. And she said: That's what I've tried to give back. She went not knowing.

Alfred:
Isn't that one of the hardest lessons Hans? Is just not to “give” unconditional love but be wiling to “accept” unconditional love?

Hans:
That's what I was trying to say earlier Alfred. Absolutely. It's much easier to give than to receive. Because when we receive our little boy and our little girl inside us is saying: Uh, I wonder why they're giving me this. Do I deserve this? What are they up to? I didn't ask for this. And starts to go through a whole series of mind boggling mind chatter. When you just should say: Thank you. Oh my gosh this is wonderful! Have you ever had a little child, Alfred, give you a flower or give you a little painting that they have drawn for you? It's huge. It's huge.

Alfred:
Yes, it's not the size or the value of the present. It's that they gave it to you with love.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
And a lot of times you'll hear that about owners or cooks of restaurants is that they're not serving food, it's that they're serving love one plate at a time.

Hans:
Absolutely, absolutely. And that's what they're well known for is individual love. I knew a restaurant in Los Angeles and it's name was King's Foreign Hand and it was a very upscale oriental restaurant. Mr. King was a wonderful guy, he came from Hong Kong. But when you sat down, the owner would come to you and bring the chef and they would say: What are you looking to taste tonight? How are you feeling? What would you like us to do? They never had a menu. And they would create these incredible meals based on what somebody was feeling that night. That is unconditional love. And if there were a little more of it in this world we would all be better off. You see folks, unconditional love means you have no judgment. How's that for a tough one? 

I know some of the most beautiful people in this world who still suffer from judgment - the appearance of what's wrong. Nothing is wrong, it's our perception of what's going on. Alfred fought me on this one for quite a long time. I said: That's only your perception. And he would get...being a Sicilian, he would get very crabby. He says: No, I can see it's hurt... My dad was the same. He used to say to me: Where is my god? Why is my god letting this happen to these people? Filled with love, filled with compassion, but he couldn't understand pain. Okay? He couldn't understand pain. Alright Alfred I think that will be the lesson for today. I'll tell you one thing about the lesson of unconditional love Alfred, the reason I'm cutting this short a little bit today is because people are really thinking about what we're saying.

Alfred:
Yes, there was a lot in that lesson. There really was.

Hans:
There really was.

Alfred:
I mean it is not about loving. It is about allowing yourself to let go of judgment, let go of opinion, let go of fear, so that you can naturally be a loving soul, a loving spirit.

Hans:
That's right.

Alfred:
It's like if you're trying to be happy, don't try to make yourself happy.

Hans:
No.

Alfred:
It's you can make yourself by giving. Then you will find true happiness.

Hans:
Yes, absolutely.

Alfred:
Okay, so the lesson really has to do with is shedding those things, those mind chatters, those ways of being, those habits...

Hans:

Let me go back and talk about perception. We need to shed perception. Replace it with unconditional love. Even, Alfred, even if it doesn't mean any sense to you at the moment, as long as you begin to practice it, that's what you will begin to draw towards you and that really makes the Spirit smile.
