GOD’S GARDEN

 

 

In morning’s soft light,
the garden hushed, freshly dewed,
my caretaking starts.

Came the inner Voice.
“This is My Eden Garden.
With your heart love it.

Here, you work for Me.
Your service is holy watch.
This is sacred ground.

Each bee, leaf, rose, task
your mission creates beauty.
The small becomes great.”

 

 


 

Except the Beloved build the garden,
they labor in vain that build it.
They who labor as holy gardeners
build it as instruments of love.
Zane’s version of Psalm 127

 

One soul can help the whole world…
The service is here beside you, and waiting in your
own heart every day. The greatest service that anyone
can give is continually to think aright—continually
to send forth love, to forgive.
White Eagle, beloved spiritual teacher

THE “FATHER” CONSCIOUSNESS

 

What is “the Father?”
The Father is universal Consciousness;
the Substance of all form; divine Mind
acting as your mind and manifesting as
limitless ideas; immortal Life appearing
as the harmonious individual life.

Seek everything in life from the kingdom within.
Draw your good from the infinity of your own
being. Touch that center, the kingdom within,
and let the Father reveal your heritage.
This is to live by Grace.

Joel S. Goldsmith, The Heart of Mysticism

SPIRITUAL WAITING

 

Go down to Egypt.
There you shed more to wait, wait.
Alone in the dark.

One plateau to next,
the hard, hushed, hidden, holy
un-selfed-ness time.

Weightless, the light grows.
Inner vision sees God’s form.
Our eternal form.

 



 

The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation.
When everything is lost, and all seems darkness,
then comes the new life and all that is needed.
Joseph Campbell

God, who is everywhere, never leaves us. Yet He seems
sometimes to be present, sometimes absent. If we
do not know Him well, we do not realize that He
may be more present to us when he is absent
than when He is present.
Thomas Merton

The Abyss was the place of transformation for
the mystics. In its depths shone the
illumination of the ‘divine dark,’ where
divinity revealed itself. …[One] of the
great mystics, St. John of the Cross, speaks
of the ‘secret stair’ by which one descends
in the dark night to meet the Beloved—the way
the soul journeys into union with God. But
prior to that union of ecstatic rapture with
the Beloved comes the Dark Night of the Soul,
that painful period of privation when one
feels imprisoned in The Abyss.
Linda Schierse Leonard

Only those willing to walk through the dark night
will be able to see the beauty of the moon
and the brilliance of the stars.
Archbishop Socrates Vilegas

WHEN JUDGMENTS CEASE

 

 

Misty mountain peaks.
Rarified air, pristine view.
Vast landscape stretches.

What is there to judge
of black, white, bad, good, wrong, right
at high altitudes?

Worldly life, status,
awards, money, big car, house.
What fleeting value…

Judge not self, others.
Let go remarks, reviews, blame.
Silent mountains speak.

 

 


 

Drop the titles. You don’t need to call yourselves
lamas or roshis. Drop the costumes.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun,
the Moon, and the Truth.
The Buddha

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?
White Eagle, Further Steps on a Spiritual Path

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”
