FORESTS AS OUR SPIRITUAL INHERITANCE

 

NATURE designed a forest as an experiment in unpredictability.
We are trying to design a regulated forest. Nature designed
a forest of long-term trends. We are trying to design a
forest with short-term absolutes. Nature designed a forest
with diversity. We are designing a forest with simplistic
uniformity. Nature designed a forest of interrelated
processes. We are trying to design a forest based on
isolated products. Nature designed a forest in which all
elements are neutral. We are designing a forest in which
we perceive some elements to be good, others bad. Nature
designed a forest to be a flexible, timeless continuum of
species. We are designing a forest to be a rigid, time-
constrained monoculture. Nature designed a forest over
a landscape. We are trying to design a forest on each acre.
Nature designed a forest to be self-sustaining and self-
repairing. We are designing a forest to require increasing
external subsidies—fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.

Nature designed forests of the Pacific Northwest
to live 500 to 1,200 years. We are designing a forest that
may seldom live 100 years. Nature designed forests of the
Pacific Northwest to be unique in the world, with twenty-five
species of conifers, the longest lived and the largest of their
genera anywhere. We are designing a forest based largely
on a single-species, short rotation.

Our dream—a sustainable forest—must be bold
enough to allow change not only in the forest but also
in our thinking because the land is not to be conquered but
is to be nurtured. We must also understand, accept, and
remember that the world is always in a state of becoming,
in a state of change, so nothing is ever ‘finished.’ Thus,
if we try to hold things constant, like yesterday’s timber
values projected into tomorrow’s forests, then it is like
driving through life looking in the rearview mirror.
Today’s decisions will design and sustain or destroy
the forests of tomorrow.

Now, more than ever, we must recognize that we are part
of the human family and trust and respect each other as if
human dignity truly were the philosophical cornerstone of
society. We must also recognize and accept that we have
one ecosystem that simultaneously produces a multitude of
products. And we, as individuals and generations, as
societies and nations, are both inseparable products of
and tenants of that system, custodians for those who follow.
Chris Maser, words from the classic book, The Redesigned Forest

SPIRITUAL SWITCH

 

It’s nothing contrived.
It’s not an imitation
to seek, race after.

The entire Network
is already functioning
from the beginning.

Our personal switch,
accessed in meditation.
Splendid Light that lights!

Light in each atom.
Light shining out in service.
Radiant Spirit!

 


 

When you are in a spiritual place, you really feel
you are in the light. You close your eyes and
meditate on spiritual sun-light; you wander in
your meditation in gardens of indescribable beauty;
then you come back to what you call reality. But
it is the vision you enjoyed when meditating that
was real; for that is your true life, the life of
spirit. What you come back to is illusion. Do you
realize that your physical world is illusory? That
in reality, it is built of light and that your
physical body is composed of light?

WORDS UN-EARTHED

 

 

Words on a book page.
Words spoken express outward.
Words in the mind cling.

 

These words are merely words.

 

Words taken within
are seeds planted in dark soil.
Consciousness sprouts Truths.

 

These words are Words of real substance.

 

Words grow in silence.
Words from Spirit feed, nourish.
Awareness deepens.

 

These Words are wisdom, the pearls unto our Heart.

 

Within your consciousness are the Words
direct from Divine Source that reawaken and
unite you to your true Self—the one who lives
in this world but who is not of it. Only in the
quiet and stillness of transparency do you
receive the infinity of your OWN words.
Herein is the mystical Union.

A spiritual adventure to embrace!

 


 

We must let imagery and poetry have their way with us,
and not try to confine ourselves to the literal meaning
of words. Let us be free from the limitations of
made-up words and made-up prayers and accept the
poetry and the imagery of the Soul, accept our
freedom in God—not lose it by trying to analyze
and dissect every word.
Joel S. Goldsmith, beloved teacher and author on the Path of Consciousness

COSMIC PEARLS

 

 

There’s no cosmic pearls
to quest for around the globe.
They reside within.

 
 


 

This is the period in history when the Father’s grace
is being revealed on earth as it is in heaven.
This is the period which is the foundation for
all spiritual ages to come. This is the period
in which the nature of spiritual power is being
revealed to the world. This is the most thrilling
period of spiritual discovery ever recorded in
history. Those who are part of this revelation
of the spiritual age are blessed beyond
measure and degree.
Joel S. Goldsmith, The Contemplative Life, page 192

THE GUSTS IN LIFE

 

Gusts are normal events.
High-speed winds surprise at times.
Where did that come from?

Gusts come in money.
They arrive as health issues.
Gusts can tear apart.

Sudden bursts bring joy,
like the birth of a baby.
Bright, fresh heights are reached.

Resist not and bend.
Swift winds blow out old for new.
React with welcome.

 

 


 

For most people, their spiritual teacher is their suffering,
because eventually the suffering brings about awakening.

Whenever anything negative happens to you,
there is a deep lesson concealed within it,
although you may not see it at the time.
both quotes by Eckhart Tolle, author of “The New Earth”

SPIRIT-WARD!

 

Birds sing their love songs.
Grasses wave in air’s caress.
Flowers spread gladness.

Seek not for a thing.
Wholeness is a given state.
Rest in clouds’ greetings.

What can be added
when rainbows speak of promised,
Divine watchfulness.

Keep your true focus
neither to the right nor left.
Always Spirit-Ward!

 


 

There is a One-ness with all being and with nature,
and one is of the very substance and nature of all creation.
This is not being a part of nature or even a part of God but
rather being the very fabric of Life. One feels their self
of the essence of the sea, the actual rise and fall of
the waves, the ebb and flow of the tides.
Joel S. Goldsmith, masterful teacher and author

 

Concentrate on matter and you see everything
in terms of matter. But as soon as you lift up your
consciousness to the state of divine awareness, you see
the oceanic current of God’s light flowing behind all
matter. You see everything in terms of Spirit.
Paramahansa Yogananda, Master of Life

FOUR ASTROLOGICAL ELEMENTS

 

Fire, Earth, Air, Water—
all part of the complete Plan.
Rest… in their guidance.

Earthly perceptions
dictate outer sense of life.
Let the deeper call.

The elements are
one in spiritual sense.
One grand Element.

The Light finds the Light.
There are no detached pieces.
You are the whole Life.

Now, now this present eternity is all…

 


 

Outside the great Temple of the Sun at Heliopolis,
where Moses was a priest, there stood four great
obelisks representing the four great elements:
fire, earth, air and water. The priests would see
them every time they passed in and out, and
the location of the obelisks at the entry implied
that this knowledge was the portal to
the understanding of God.
From the book “Emmet Fox: The Modern Mystic”

 

There are four divisions into which human life is classed…
those coming under the earth signs, under air, under
fire, and under water. These influences play upon the
individual in the earth life in order to bring forth the
radiant powers of the spirit. The symbol of the cross
within the circle symbolizes the clear-cut divisions of
earth, air, fire and water under which people are born
during their various incarnations. Although seemingly
separated, the four elements interpenetrate and blend.
There must be this interpenetration of the influences.
Owing to these influences and those of the planets under
which you were born, your soul learns wisdom, love, and
power, the lessons of brotherhood, service, peace, and
love. …all these elements are introduced into life at
different steps on the spiral of evolution, on which
spiral the soul commences at the bottom and travels
in a circular direction onwards and upwards.
White Eagle, from an Inner Teaching

• Perambulating The Astrological Houses

THE LOTUS POOL

 

Shall we join near the
tranquil place of the Lotus?
Waters so still, calm.

Circling this center
of beauty, peace, harmony
are like-hearted ones.

All here work for the
Age when earth returns to its
full, golden Heaven.

 


You are on earth to extricate yourselves
from the bondage of the earth. …You are
needed; your service, true and pure, is so
vital at the present time.
wise words from White Eagle
 


Thy love shall chant
its own beatitude after
its own like working.
A child’s kiss set
on thy singing lips
shall make thee glad.
A poor man served by
thee will make thee rich.
A sick man helped
by thee will make
thee strong.
Thou shalt be served
thyself by every sense
of service which thou rendereth.
Elizabeth Browning
 


The Christ Festival—one of the annual, spiritual Festivals—
occurs today, when there is a great outpouring of
Divine Light and Love from the inner, higher level
of life. This Festival occurs every year on the day
when the Full Moon is in Sagittarius and the Sun is in
Gemini
. It is a sacred time of uniting with others who
walk and live the Spiritual Path and who work continuously
for the progress, evolution, and upliftment of humanity.
A New World is surely being birthed.

INNER COMPANION

Whichever name of
“God” expression resonates

Let it be for you
the sacred Truth of Life, Love.
present with you now.

Inner Companion
accompanies all your steps.
Trust your Companion.

In the end, this Guide
is the Divine Consciousness
as the One Maker.

 


All of human experience is a looking
to each other for something.
All of spiritual experience is a looking
to God for everything.
Joel S. Goldsmith, messenger for “The Infinite Way” path

 

You may think what is one life in countless lives?
What is one individual in countless numbers?
And yet, not a sparrow falls to the ground but
God knows it, and every hair of your head is numbered.
…two sayings of the wise Jesus, the Christed one.
…We are all in one vast life, one consciousness,
one divine mind, and everything is known to God,
because God is It; God is That. Thou art That.
White Eagle, spiritually illumined teacher

 

One Life and one Love surges through all as
One Infinite Divine Being. One Soul unites all
creation in Its embrace and is the Life of all creation.
Joel S. Goldsmith, beloved exemplar of Divine Consciousness

SELF-EFFECT

 

When I am angry,
stressed, sad, selfish, critical,
I’m miserable.

When I am peaceful,
joyful, helpful, accepting,
I’m relaxed, loving.

No one outwardly
controls my inner climate.
It is self-produced.

I alone send out,
setting effects in motion.
self-biography.

One day, in our growth
the Invisible flows through.
Self-biography.

 


You see the mystery lies in this. Nothing can happen
to you, except it happens through your consciousness.
There’s nothing taking place outside your consciousness,
and if New York is a good city, it’s because your
consciousness has opened itself to that. And if New
York is a bad city, your consciousness has opened
itself to that. … Everything that takes place or happens
in your life has to happen in and through your consciousness.
Joel S. Goldsmith, from his tape “Preparing the Soil for the Spiritual Seed”

 


Today, May 22, 2017, my dad would have been 99 years
old, so it is to him—with greatest love—that I
dedicate this haiku poem. “For the Love of Dad”
was written to honor his life and light.
