BEHIND THE APPEARANCE BEHOLD THE LIGHT

 

Dim light casts shadows.
Clouds enshroud and veil the sun.
Dark seems a power.

Is the sun’s light gone?
When clouds open or depart,
was that darkness real?

Dark moments include
grief, pain, failure, fear, envy.
Behind is the sun.

In the light of day,
Light did not dispel darkness.
It shows its absence.

Reach for the light of
spiritual discernment.
Where light is, Light is.
 


 


 

Those who on earth attain valiant victory over
darkness will bask in the light and glory of a tangible
peace and inner happiness.
Paramahansa Yogananda
 

Everything has its basis in the invisible appearing
visibly and tangibly. …creation is an act of an
invisible principle visibly manifest.
Joel S. Goldsmith

SPIRITUAL GUARDIANSHIP

The watchful shepherd,
ever vigilant in care,
tender of each sheep.

Tao, Allah, Krishna, Christ, I.
All Divine Presence.

 


 

You are a part of the Eternal Life. Awaken and expand

yourself ceases to be limited to the little body.

HEAVEN’S REALM IS WITHIN YOU

 

    “We may go to a teacher or to a book for guidance and help along the way, but we cannot go to a teacher or to a book for God. For that, we have to go to our own Soul, to the innermost depths of our own being. No man, woman, or book can reveal God to us. All any one of them can do is to show us the path along which we may travel until we get back into the kingdom of our own being, the kingdom of our own Soul, and there find God.

    “It is like the disciple who went to his master and asked, ‘Please, Master, show me God. Let me know God. Let me stand in God’s presence.’

    “Over and over he made this appeal to his master, but the wise master did nothing about it except smile and say, ‘Yes, in time, in time, in time.’

    “Then one day the master felt that the time had come, so he said to his disciple, ‘I am going to take you to our secret and sacred temple. There are three rooms in this temple, but I can take you into the first one only. After that you will have to proceed by yourself. If you find the way, ultimately you will find God. If not, it will have to be another time.’

    “The disciple found himself alone in a room that was empty except for a golden statue of the Jehovah God, but after he became accustomed to the feel of this room, he sensed that something was wrong. ‘No, this is not it. There is too heavy an atmosphere here. I shall have to go further.’

    “So he found his way into the next room, and after entering this second room, he began to breathe more freely. But as before, when he familiarized himself with the surroundings, he saw that he was once more in an empty room except for a crystal statue of the Jehovah God. He felt the lightness of the crystal; he felt the lightness of the atmosphere of the room, and said to himself, ‘This is more like it.’ But after a while he realized that this, too, was not It.

    “With that, he began to search for the entrance to the third room, and when he discovered it, he found himself in an empty room, a completely empty room. There was nobody there but himself.”

Joel S. Goldsmith, an excerpt from “The World Is New,” pages 87-88.

GOING VERTICAL

 

Leaps of consciousness
appear to hit in a flash.
Behind is the work.

Day-by-day progress
is to be present, aware,
seeing all as One.

Instantaneous
illumination happens.
Saul was struck down blind.

Lifted vertical
comes when we least expect it.
Light made Saul a Paul!

 


 

My own state of consciousness permeates
every externalized part of my experience.
It cannot be otherwise.
 


 

What we do take with us as we leave this plane
is every bit of good that we have brought into
active expression in our life and every bit of
spiritual enlightenment we have gained.
Joel S. Goldsmith

Gracious presence flying free.
Over water glides.

Bird seen inwardly

Harmony beneath.

These Truth messengers
all are outward our inward.
Spirit revealed as.

 


 

Nature is the essence of Love, as are we.
Sacred ground of heaven.

 


 

When you are present you can sense the spirit—
the one consciousness in every creature—
and love it as yourself.
Eckhart Tolle

A GREAT SECRET OF ALL AGES

There is nothing of greater importance
in all this world to do than to
rest peacefully and enter
the inner sanctuary,
then
be quiet
be still
be silent
be empty enough
to experience
the Divine Presence
and hear the Voice within.
This is the eternal pearl,
the only comfort, answer, and
fulfillment you will ever require.

 


 

The transcendental “Word,” in its true origin
and essence, is only ever spoken and heard within
the silence of your own being. And, only
you can realize this for yourself, such that
you alone, through your own effort and
dedication, can enter the Promised Land.
A Moses can lead you almost there,
but you alone must enter on your own.


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• Are You Able To Be Quiet?

• Meditative Quiet

• Self-Emptying Meditation

• Receptivity

• In Emptiness Is Spiritual Fulfillment

• The Temple Of Silence

• Spiritual Silence

THE LAW OF FORGIVENESS

 

Law of Forgiveness
means that forgive, forgiven
are synonymous.

A weight is put down
both for you and the other.
No longer burdened.

Law of Forgiveness
is release, freedom granted.
Holding chains dissolved.

One more big weight drops
within for one’s own missteps.
Unbind is unbound.

 


 

The spiritual effect of forgiveness is that it nullifies
an apparent, external effect and thus elevates us to a
higher consciousness above that of a so-called material
and mental sense of the world. Forgiveness resides in
the realm of Spirit, and it causes a whole different
rippling scenario of effects and consequences—peace of
mind and heart, generosity, gentleness, kindness,
compassion, contentment, and unconditional love.
Forgiveness is a glimpse into the spiritual universe,
of Grace become visible.

 

The person with a forgiving heart allows a perceived
something—no matter its minor to major degree—to
become its rightful nothing. Such an opened heart has
risen to the impersonal level of forgiveness that realizes
the Self of the other is the Self of me. It creates a vacuum,
a cleansed emptiness where something entirely new comes
in—the true Love that originated from the beginning.

MYSTICAL REVELATION

If you want to be unbound,
you must relinquish earthly traits and
values for heavenly truth and Grace.

You must release your dependence
on the visible world for the peace and
assurance of the Invisible; then, all
perception occurs through the
transparency of spiritual eyes.

You must sup of food that endures
from that which perishes.

You must dispense with multiple gods
and powers and the various human-created
“prisons” you are attached to in order
to realize your unity with the One Soul.

And, you must come out from behind
the mask of an enclosed, personal sense
of self to return to your divine
Identity and true Home.

Slowly, steadily, surely, with patience
and dedication, a transition occurs and the
sitting at the feet of a Master transforms into
you as the one who radiates serenity, wisdom,
forgiveness, understanding, comfort, and the
love that encompasses all equally within
the universal tapestry of Manifested Life.

 


 

…assume responsibility for your own mind,
both as to what goes into it and what comes out from
it. In this way, you determine the nature of your
entire experience because you learn how to avoid
accepting universal beliefs and how to avoid the
pitfall of coming under domination of the thinking
of others, individually or collectively. Thus, you
can learn how to go through life in control of your
own experience. …The only force or power there is,
is that which you yourself possess. You have within
yourself the Redeemer, the Savior, the Power
unto your own existence.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Spiritual Discernment: the Healing Consciousness

 

We must know the truth for the truth to make
us free. Everything comes through consciousness,
and if we are not conscious of God’s presence, we
do not have it. If we are not conscious of God’s
power, we do not have it. If we are not conscious
of God’s omniscience, we do not have it. Therefore,
anything that comes to us must come through
our own consciousness.
Joel S. Goldsmith, A Message for the Ages

SILENT PRAYER AND CHRISTMAS

 

Prayer in its highest sense is the prayer
of contact, of communion, in which no words
or thoughts pass from you to God, and there
may not even be words or thoughts passing
from God to you, but there will be an
awareness; there will be an inner sense of
peace. True prayer comes to its completeness
and its perfection when there are no desires
in the mind. True prayer comes to full bloom
when one has lost all sense of wanting
something in this feeling of communion,
resting in the Soul. It is just as if all
your wishes had been granted…. as if it
were Christmas morning at the tree. You
had received all your gifts and now just
have the feeling of “Thank you, everyone.”
Joel S. Goldsmith, illumined mystic of the West

• Your Own Christmas Day: Awaken!

SPIRITUAL AID

 

Master “J” taught us
to take no thought for our life,
to forego our nets.

Timeless the mystics
live from inward provision.
In advance, all known.

There is a rich stream
where manifest blessings are
a ceaseless flow out.

As the heart opens,
light is heaven’s Consciousness.
Divine endowment.

 


 

The soul cannot be confined within
man-made boundaries. Its nationality
is Spirit; its country is Omnipresence.
Paramahansa Yogananda
