SPIRITUAL SMALLNESS

 

Definitions abound.
Small is tiny is teensy.
Small is miniscule and under-sized.
Small is even said to be lesser
in magnitude and extent.
But rise above such diminutive concepts
and itty-bitty appearances.
Let the limited, outward picture fool us not.
Small is anything but unimportant and insignificant!

 

Small is its own natural tune and vision.
Small is unassuming, the last in line.
Small is humility.
Small inflates not its own self.
Small can be a small quantity … perhaps.
Small in “size” is equal in every way.
Small is large of heart.
Small’s greatness is its continuous generosity.
Small is an interior beauty.
Small is a masterpiece in its own right.

 

Small is self-emptied of me, my, and mine.
Small desires not.
Small covets not.
Small can be quite unnoticed.
Small cultivates not numbers of admirers or applause.
Small shouts not from the rooftops for validation.
Small seeks the Light secretly, sacredly.

 

Small wants what is.
Small says, “Yes.”
Small resists not, opposes not.
Small is acceptance.
Small is this moment of presence.
Small is the ultimate freedom.

 

Small includes.
Small encircles.
Small expands into the Universe.
Small says, “I see you as me.
We are of identical Essence.”
Small, big all the same One.
Small embraces the True and Real.

 

Small is stillness and silence.
Small is surrendered receptivity.
Small can hear the ever-continuous, wee Voice.
Small is a state of divine Consciousness.
Small is much more than small.
Spiritually, small is vast and infinite!

 

Only a person who has passed through the gate
of humility can ascend to the heights of the spirit.
Rudolf Steiner

There is something in humility,
which strangely exalts the heart.
Saint Augustine

Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
Confucius

…Humility and meekness are indeed spiritual powers.
Swami Sivananda

SPIRITUAL QUIESCENCE

 

 

Energy ebbs, builds.
Rushing rivers burst their seams.
Downhill they fast plunge.

 

Waters of land merge
in awaiting ocean arms.
Two meet in the one.

 

Seamless power meets.
Currents collide in uplift.
Head-on surge settles.

 

Winds calm, surface stills.
A moment of perfect rest.
One quiet ensues.

 

 
 

My heart is tuned to the quietness that
the stillness of nature inspires.
Hazrat Inayat Khan, founder of the mystical
Sufi Order in the West in 1914

UNCOMMON SENSE

Human, divine spheres
radically different.
Two levels of sight.

One is visible,
the other invisible.
Take the leap and soar.

One is the finite.
The other is infinite.
Restless or restfilled.

One futures, regrets,
other is full of deep peace.
Tap the inward Source.

Physical senses
say appearance is concrete.
Life is by effort.

Senses of spirit
draw from hidden water, bread.
Intangible Grail.

Uncommon sense frees
us from fear, limits, lack, ills.
Outside props left, gone.

All shadows recede.
Behold real vistas—stunning!
Earth is Heaven seen.

 


Common sense is the message to fit in and look
like everyone else. Be the norm. Be practical.
Be rational and realistic.

Uncommon sense is the vision to walk
your own way, alone if need be, appearing
ouwardly as your unseen Self directs.
Awaken to infinite choice.


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• It’s All Your Choice

• Choose Your Fork Of The Path

• Casting Outward, Casting Inward

• Self-Creation

• Inner Climate

FILLED-FULL-MENT

I am filled fully
in measure to what I give.
Spirit tells us so.

Lighted Self I am
when little self is no more.
Spirit tells us so.

I am robed with love
the moment love enfolds you.
Spirit tells us so.

Of equal fineness,
we’re divine transparencies
in All filled-full-ment.

 


In this age, spiritual power and the nature of its
working have been discovered. As we continue to
learn more and more about spiritual power, we will
prepare ourselves to be worthy instruments for its flow—
not so much for your good or mine but that
the entire world may be embraced in divine Love.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Awakening Mystical Consciousness

ALWAYS ACCOMPANIED

 

Rest in easy peace.
Walk the Path accompanied.
The many are One.

I, the great secret.
The Holy Name in the heart.
I, always within.

Open and access
the living Water, Wisdom.
Our freedom assured.

 


 

One draws from the well without hindrance.
It is dependable. Supreme good fortune.
The well is there for all. No one is forbidden
to take water from it. No matter how many
come, all find what they need, for the well
is dependable. It has a spring and never runs
dry. Therefore, it is a great blessing to the
whole land. The same is true of the really
great man, whose inner wealth is inexhaustible;
the more that people draw from him, the
greater his wealth becomes.
The I Ching, Hexagram 48

EACH ONE

 

The each and the One,
individual and Whole.
The one Hand, same hand.

Why would we exclude?
Why would we be prejudiced?
Jilting you, jilts me.

Music in you, me.
We rise up, fall together.
One Note is the same.

You have your mission.
I have my call to service.
Light of each, one Light.
 


In the mirror of Thy divinity may we
behold ourselves as perfect.
Paramahansa Yogananda

SPREADING OF BLESSINGS: WALT WHITMAN

 

Two armies of men
in blue, gray coats in grave fight.
Quietly he came.

Paper, pencil, stamps,
little money of his own.
Listening to men.

Most at fear’s, death’s doors,
writing down their words for home.
Letters of heart sent.

True identity
he witnessed in each soldier,
each Lighted presence.

Whom, then, did he serve?
Emanations of Being.
Companioned with love.
 


 

Anything that you can see as true of another,
eventually you will see as the truth of yourself.
You are that other, and that other is you,
for there is only one Self.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Living the Illumined Life

A CHRIS MASER “PEARL”

 

We create a drama.
Then we dramatize it.
But if we’re present,
there can be no drama.
Chris Maser, co-author of Sustainability and
the Rights of Nature: An Introduction

 


 

A person does not improve; he does not become
more spiritual. He either sleeps on in mortality or awakens
to his Christhood. There is no progress; there is either
being asleep or being awake. Sometimes one person is
sleeping more lightly than others, and some are dead in
sleep, but it is still a sleep until the moment of
awakening, and then sleep is over, and the
awakening has come.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Living the Illumined Life

BUDDHA LIFE

 

Twenty-one, long years
from palace to Bodhi tree.
Each step a loss, gain.

No more suffering.
Human traces all removed.
Clarity remains.

Imparting of Truth.
Hungry, weary seekers drawn.
No words need spoken.

Love is what there is.
Universe vibrates as One.
Buddha life of Light.

 


 

When I, the personal self, is fully absent,
then I, the divine Self, is fully present.
Just such transparency is the Buddha life.
