THE LIFE BEAUTIFUL

 
800px-Lohaghat,_Uttarakhand,_India_Himalayan_Range_November_2013

Earth, Air, Fire, Water.
Nature displays vast splendor.
Open your senses.

The jumping spider
this morn joined us for breakfast.
Swifts flew down chimney.

The morning light shone
on golden sunflowers near.
Joy leaps in our hearts.

Creative Spirit
unites and maintains all form.
One Reality.

The material and the spiritual are but two parts
of one universe and one truth.

MEDITATE ON THE WORD “IN”

 
450px-Vairochana_copper_statue_2_CAC

An INsightful word.
INfinite, INvisible.
IN the true Light realm.

IN me is my Soul.
Dwell IN the small, quiet Voice.
Power is withIN.

IN the holy place,
the INner secret is found.
Sow IN the Spirit.

All needs fulfilled IN.
Rest back IN confident peace.
Fly up IN release.

Because most people nowadays are constantly buffeted
by external stimuli, they literally don’t know how to go within.
…We aren’t encouraged to adopt a subjective view of life—
about our own feelings, about feelings between others,
or about a sense of something greater than oneself.
…We’ve lost the language for understanding and
discussing abstract, philosophical realms.
Shelley von Strunckel, renowned astrologer

 

IN equals ONE.
INdivisible
INseparable
INspired
INvocation
IllumINation
NumINous.
Zane Maser, a shININg INtrovert

 

My destiny is in my own hands.
Mary Burmeister, master practioner of the ancient art of Jun Shin Jyutsu

 

Seek spiritual riches within. What you are is much greater
than anything or anyone else you have ever yearned for.
Paramahansa Yogananda

 


1in_god_we_trust

Even the paper currency issued by the Treasury of the
United States pays high tribute to the importance
of “IN” with “IN God We Trust.”

LIVE FREELY

 
800px-Au_marché_-_oeufs

This season it’s red.
The Stock Market is dropping!
Eggs are good to eat.

What is “yes” today,
tomorrow the fad says “no.”
Keep updated or lose!

Life races by that soon.
Sleep walk and miss big event!
Yet the Cosmos IS.

Feel from your true heart.
Chart the North Star course for you.
Internal compass.

Live freely, boldly.
Guru nods confirmation.
Worms are churning soil.

510px-H.H._Pujya_Swami_Chidanand_Saraswatiji

 

In remarkable ways over the past week, real strides have manifested in the momentum to attain true freedom of rights for millions of individuals—“electrifying paradigm shifts,” as Jim Sher put it. Astrologically, the signature of Uranus in Aries is evident—both planet and sign indicate individuality and self-realization. Uranus is currently aligning in powerful ways with both Venus and Jupiter in the generous Fire sign of Leo, while the Moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius also joined this liberating, equalizing trio.

Included among these astounding changes that have elevated the collective consciousness have been the taking down of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina State House building, as well as a national movement to generally remove this flag; and the two Supreme Court decisions (from an extremely conservative group of judges), one that upholds the Obamacare health-insurance subsidies for millions of people, and secondly, the outstanding ruling that gives national legality to gay marriage across the United States. This is a week that will continue to resound in jubilant, far-reaching ways on Earth and in Heaven!

Look up. Look up and follow the Divine North Star! Its Light guides and shines equally on ALL life.

Always point the needle of your attention toward the
North Pole of spiritual joy. Then no one can
ever disturb your equilibrium.
Paramahansa Yogananda, spiritual Master

SPIRITUAL ENDOWMENT

 
DSCN0534

The web of Spirit
links us in unitedness.
Outer mirages fade.

Joined we stand.
One Coat is the many coats.
Your smile is my smile.

True sharing, no needs.
From the Center, supplies come.
Real love gives freedom.

Not higher, lower.
Creation is Self-complete.
Contented cats nap.

Bodhi sunning

 

No-one can form any idea of the grandeur and beauty
of the infinite scheme. There is no such thing in all creation
as splendid isolation; no separation between any form of life,
but all is blended in one harmonious whole.
White Eagle, Earth Healer

 

…I am all orders of being,
the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence,
the lift, and the falling away.
What is, and what isn’t….
Rumi

“THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING”

 
800px-Sky-Sun-Clouds-Bird-1483

From formless to form.
Over stuffed with too muchness.
Clouds darken the Sun.

Without thoughts and words.
In the heart of communion.
The mind rests at last.

Abide in empty wait.
All saints enter dark for dawn.
From nothing clouds part.

 

220px-Saint_Francis_statue_in_garden

The Cloud of Unknowing—a well-known classic of Christian mystical literature—was written anonymously (though the author is considered to have been a monk) sometime in the latter part of the 14th century. It remains a living work for contemplative study and prayer.

Those who are able—in self-forgetting—to reach the higher dimension of Divine Revelation, where all there is to know is already known, glean its jewels of spiritual wisdom. While in the still and silent space of meditation, one moves from the false to the true, from the unreal to the real to experience directly the nature of God and to hear God’s thoughts. The consciousness of the One constitutes the consciousness of all.

Here are a few quotes from a translated version of this spiritual guidebook:

…when I say “darkness” I mean a lack of knowing,
just as whatever you do know or have forgotten is dark
to you, because you do not see it in your spiritual eyes.
For this reason, that which is between you and
your God is termed, not a cloud of the air,
but a cloud of unknowing.

Let that meek (quiet) darkness be your whole mind
and like a mirror to you. For I want your thought of self
to be as naked and simple as your thought
of God, so that you may be with God in spirit without
fragmentation and scattering of your mind.

Because it is not what you are nor what you
have been that God looks at with his merciful eyes,
but what you desire to be….

FLUENT EASE

702px-Little_Gray_Mouse_-_Running_Fast_(58)

Patterns keep us stuck.
The fast, “do”-ing treadmill stress.
Hair flying, what for?

The breath goes in, out.
Space for Presence to show up.
The breath slows, softly.

Sweet heart leads the Way.
Measured steps, move mindfully.
Life is effortless.

 
 
800px-The_Heart_of_Santorini_(3601801484)

All life is one; yesterday, today, tomorrow –
all is a perfect sequence, perfect law and order.
The life you are living today is the result
of how you lived yesterday; and as you live today
in your innermost being, so your future may be.
White Eagle, The Gentle Brother

THE SOUL’S PRAYER

 
454px-Portrait_of_'A_medicine_man,_Navajo'_Wellcome_V0038478

O, Great Spirit, who art in us.
Blessedness be your name.
Your Kingdom here.
Your will is done on earth,
in our hearts as in Yours.

Thank you for our spiritual bread.
And forgive us our human lapses,
as we act with kindness to others’ mistakes.

Help us to recall our true Oneness.
Deliver us into Your Light.
For this is Your High Realm.
With its power,
and its glory,
now and eternally.

Amen. Amen. Amen.

SACRED RIVERS

799px-Pandion_haliaetus_2355

Osprey hunting fish.
Rocks smoothed by river’s tumble.
All senses engaged.

River eternal.
Flowing tales and history.
Secrets secreted.

From land to ocean.
One Body links Earth life.
Walk light, holy places.

Heavenly Nature expressed.
 

Zum Baden meist zu kalt, ansonsten sehr imponierendes Gewässer

When you embrace the bounteous
privilege and miracle of rivers,
you stand with Angels.
Zane Maser
 

The natural world is the greatest source of excitement;

The greatest source of so much in life

Feminine softness.
Glorious quiet, still, peace.

Emptied, open, Truth reveals.
Nothing to get, learn.

Stars twinkle messages.
Light responds in every cell.
Nothing to desire.

Live now completely fulfilled.

THE STRAIGHT PATH

800px-Encroached
 

God made the straight Path.
We make it rough, hard, or smooth.
Our Path reveals us.

God gave sun and clouds.
Summer’s heat, winter’s coldness.
The Light is constant.

Accept all life’s gifts.
Open your heart to recall.
God made the straight Path.
 

Straight_path_through_Gapton_Marshes_-_geograph.org.uk_-_674249
 

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 7:14 (KJV)
 

I will go before thee,
and make the crooked places straight….
Isaiah 45:2 (KJV)
