IMMOVEABLE CENTER

400px-ablis_en_2012_76

Things all around shift.
People, conditions move out
of our time and life.

Doors close.

The upswing goes down.
Quiet vacuums purposeful.
Sorting what to keep.

Releasing the valueless.

Angst of aloneness.
Apparent loss seems endless.
Feeling deep darkness.

The well is dry.

Sitting still waiting.
Peace seeps into consciousness.
New water trickles.

Crocus snow clad.

800px-crocus_etruscus_in_snow

No egotism taint.
Spirit grasps us at right time.
When we are called.

Doors open.

The Soul’s taproot touched.
Immoveable Center felt.
In silence reap pure.

“DIS” IS OUT, “HARMONY” IS IN

800px-Rainbow10_-_NOAA

      In a spiritual Universe that is free of opposites of expression, like good or bad, there is no possibility whatsoever for the existence of states of consciousness like “dis-harmony” or other similar “dis” states, such as:

Dis-order — Dis-ruption — Dis-turbances
Dis-array — Dis-combobulations — Dis-asters
Dis-cord — Dis-crepancies — Dis-allowances
Dis-repair — Dis-equilibrium — Dis-satisfaction
Dis-comfort — Dis-content — Dis-may — Dis-tress
Dis-quiet — Dis-sonance — Dis-orientation
Dis-ability — Dis-ablement — Dis-ease
Dis-advantage — Dis-parate — Dis-similarities
Dis-putations — Dis-parity — Dis-couragement
Dis-enchantment — Dis-appointment
Dis-heartenment — Dis-illusionment — Dis-belief
Dis-engagement — Dis-allowment — Dis-ownment
Dis-inherit — Dis-enfranchisement — Dis-placements
Dis-connectedness — Dis-jointedness — Dis-location
Dis-like — Dis-paragement — Dis-agreements
Dis-pleasure — Dis-gruntlement — Dis-approval
Dis-dain — Dis-gust — Dis-obedience
Dis-missal — Dis-trust —Dis-honor
Dis-grace — Dis-favor

      In reality, there is only Harmony—a word that encompasses all spiritual qualities—and the existence of a harmonious Universe.

SOLITUDE’S GIFT

The following words describing how “solitude is indispensable” are by James Allan, the British mystic who had attained cosmic consciousness. The great, spiritual legacy he left us is contained in the few books he wrote. These words come from his book, “Byways of Blessedness,” contained within the Chapter Solitude. In the footsteps of James Allan—a sainted one who walked the Way of the Mystic—you will derive the most benefit when you take his words deeply into your heart and there let them permeate your inner being. These periodic moments of quiet contentment are the well of sustainment for the natural process of spiritual unfoldment. Within, your true Self awaits—in blessed moments of stillness and solitude.

“The pure life of the spirit cannot be found, but is lost, in the
life of the senses. The lower desires are ever clamorous for
more, and they afford no rest. The outward world of pleasure,
personal contact, and noisy activities is a sphere of wear and
tear, which necessitates the counterbalancing effect of solitude.

Just as the body requires rest for the recuperation of its forces,
so the spirit requires solitude for the renewal of its energies.
Solitude is as indispensable to spiritual welfare as sleep is to
bodily well-being. And pure thought, or meditation, which is
evoked in solitude, is to the spirit what activity is to the body.

As the body breaks down when deprived of the needful rest
and sleep, so do the spirits of men break down, being deprived
of the necessary silence and solitude. Man, as a spiritual being,
cannot be maintained in strength, uprightness, and peace
except that he periodically withdraw from the outer world of
perishable things and reach inwardly towards the abiding
and imperishable realities.”

FREELY GIVEN, FREELY GIVEN

1024px-Cornucopia_of_fruit_and_vegetables_wedding_banquet_(cropped)
 

Limitless Substance.
No grind, sweat, hectic gaining.
No thing to produce.

Plentiful cycle
comes to those of open heart.
Circulating free.

What is God’s is mine.
I freely share abundance.
What is mine is yours.

The lasting treasure
we garner is heavenly.
Let all desires go.

The moment I have realized God sitting in the
temple of every human body, the moment I stand
in reverence before every human being and see God
in him—that moment I am free from bondage,
everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
Swami Vivekananda, enlightened Master
 


Whatever it is that we bind, that is what is bound to us.
Whatever we loose, that is what is loosed.
Joel S. Goldsmith, loved teacher and illumined one

The Sermon on the Mount points up sharply
the two ways of life with no common meeting ground:
the ye-have-heard-it-said-by-them-from old-time-
way—the getting, achieving, struggling for survival way
[of the Old Testament]—and the I-say-unto-you way
—the letting, giving, and resting in My peace way.
Joel S. Goldsmith

We cannot live according to a human standard
[or code] of life and at the same time reap the
fruitage of the spiritual life.
Joel S. Goldsmith

HOPE, FAITH, LOVE

 
450px-john_the_baptist_at_church_in_guelph

The qualities of the Christ are those of love, wisdom,
strength, kindness, and so, with the incoming of that
Light into your body and your soul comes a desire to
give succor and joy to other people. This is the basis
of all Christmas greetings and Christmas gifts, the
feeling of gratitude. This is our message at Christmastide.
Feel for yourselves the hush, the holiness of this
spiritual baptism, this spiritual visitation. Never look
on the dark side. Never regard tragedy as tragedy!
Always know that behind the scenes of life is this wise,
loving Power bringing good and more good and more good,
bringing light out of darkness, bringing knowledge and
wisdom out of ignorance. Do not be pulled down by
darkness and ignorance. Hope! Faith! Love! These
three, but the greatest of all is … Love.
White Eagle, beloved teacher

White Eagle has spoken frequently to those who have lost loved ones from years past, but most especially to those of us who have had dear ones pass on this year. Here are some beautifully comforting words from him, as loving balm for our hearts:

Try to remember that your loved ones have only left
behind the darkness of earth—they themselves are
alive in the wonderful world of eternal life. They
come very close at Christmas time, bringing their
love to touch your heart. Picture a Temple built
out of light, in the center of which is a Christmas
tree shining with light. Here you can meet your
loved family and friends.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

 
400px-meditation_in_a_yoga_asana_with_namaste

Priorities straight.
Start new day inwardly still.
Cleared, waiting, peaceful.

Feel the “touch” of Grace.
Everything necessary
appears from Silence.

To proceed aright
needs a Divine Interlude.
Not your way but Mine.

All that is needed
comes to you at right moment
when first things come first.

You are blessed, upheld
as life flows from within out.
A raven brings food.

Now, act on your heart’s intents.

800px-corvus_corax_nps
 


As far as inner transformation is concerned,
there is nothing you can do about it.
You cannot transform yourself, and you
certainly cannot transform your partner
or anybody else. All you can do is create
a space for transformation to happen,
for grace and love to enter.
Eckhart Tolle, greatly revered spiritual teacher and author

“EDEN” CONSCIOUSNESS

800px-paradiso_terrestre

In the Garden we
know our true identity.
Naked is normal.

Herein, we live, move
in our pure, loving, perfect
state of One Spirit.

Good, bad thoughts surface.
Mind creates two—this and that.
Consciousness divides.

And the Divine Voice asks, “Who told
you that you were naked?”

Duality starts.
Naked is shameful; let’s hide.
Good, bad powers reign.

The world seems finite.
Competition drives us mad.
Opposites bring fear.

But our Soul whispers,
“devils are only thought traps.”
Unreal, powerless.

The Garden exists
as we return to center.
Dualism ceases.

One pure Universe
emanates from Consciousness.
Eden complete, whole.

And the Divine Voice praises, “Ah, yes,
you lifted out of your mind.”

 
800px-thomas_cole_the_garden_of_eden_amon_carter_museum


Material thinking is most often about constraints,
because it’s based on competition.
Spiritual thinking is about freedom,
because it’s based on Love, so
constraints are non-existent.

DIVINE INFLUENCE

 
800px-morning_mountains

This morn, I awoke
calmed, restored from the night’s sleep.
I heard a dove call.

All day, I open
to the Divine Influence.
Fed, inspired within.

This dusk, I realize
no one moment has been spent
from God’s attention.

Right now, just God IS.
Never once out of such care.
Bliss-felt harmony.

800px-sunrise_in_southeast_alaska_-_noaa

 


There is nowhere you have to go, nothing you have to do,
and nothing you have to be except exactly what you
are being right now, in order to experience
the bliss of the Divine.
You ARE the bliss of the Divine,
and you simply do not know it.
…Here is the central error of most human theology:
You think that one day you are going to meet God.
You imagine that you are one day going to get back
Home. You are not going to get back Home.
You never left Home.
Neale Donald Walsch, “Home with God In a Life That Never Ends”

LET IT ALL REST…

apple-heart-leaf

In this family-centered week of Thanksgiving in the United States, there is much to celebrate and to feel incredible gratitude for. In contrast, given the context of the aftermath of our recent national election, there are also agitated waters of heightened, intense feelings. The thought and emotional atmosphere is highly disturbed in our land, as well as in other parts of the world for various reasons.

As the small part I can play, I am turning within frequently to this prayer for ALL humanity. This puts the current, turbulent waters in the Hands and Heart of a Being much wiser than any of our own. By this way of “clearing,” we release our personal agendas and let it all rest within the broader picture of the evolutionary growth of Consciousness on this beautiful planet we ALL share. Letting it go, letting it be is a powerful mantra for right now and the days ahead.

I let go—into the Divine,
And I let it be—in the Divine.
Thus peace, harmony, love,
and Light reigns supreme
as the One Life.

Let goodwill and unity live on Earth,
beginning in the heart of each one of us.

Letting it go, letting it be.
Letting it go, letting it be.
Letting it go, letting it be.
Letting it go, letting it be.
Letting it go, letting it be.
 Letting it go, letting it be…

THE DIVINE FACE

800px-lantau_tian_tan_buddha

My neighbor is me.
Let us see our shared Oneness.
Keepers me to you.

Names writ in Heaven.
I AM every “she,” “he.”
Outward Spirit flows.

Clouds part and sun shines.
The true revealed as Christ’s face.
Rejoice in union.
 


That which a person continuously dwells upon,
that which he embraces in his consciousness, is that
with which he ultimately becomes one. It is that
continuous state of oneness which enabled the Master
to say, “Thou seest me, thou seest the Father that
sent me, for I and my Father are one.”
Joel S. Goldsmith, much loved teacher and illumined One
