MASTERS OF FLIGHT

800px-canadiangeeseflyinginvformation

Look up, hear the geese.
One single, flight formation.
Behold it with awe.

The front bird’s efforts
smooth the glide path for others
to fly with less work.

The lead position
is the current “Master” bird.
It charts the true course.

Each bird takes its turn.
Evolutionary grace.
Each elevated.

 



A vast cosmos of the different forces of nature
is tied together by God’s directing power. Everything
works in mutual harmony with the Divine Plan.
Paramahansa Yogananda, illumined Master and beloved teacher


Every object and event in nature is a masterful
stroke of the Great Painter.
Paramahansa Yogananda

“THE THUNDER OF SILENCE”—A FREE E-BOOK

title-thunder-1

Each one of us has to “die” within our own consciousness
to the old person, so that the new person can be born.
No person ever dies after spiritual illumination is
attained. We can, at this moment, commune with any
of the great, illumined Souls. There is within each
of us the transcendental Consciousness, which is the
Christ, the Spirit of God in us. God IS, and God is
available to all who can acknowledge that God IS. So
instead of praying up to God, let us be so silent within
ourselves that we can hear the still, small Voice.
An excerpt from The Thunder of Silence by Joel Goldsmith

As noted on the back cover of many of Joel S. Goldsmith’s books, this short biographical sketch appears about this internationally recognized, modern-day mystic:

Joel S. Goldsmith (March 10, 1892 — June 17, 1964), a
monumental teacher of practical mysticism, devoted
most of his life to the discovery and teaching of
spiritual principles, that he defined and called “The
Infinite Way.” In 1947, after the publication of his
seminal book, The Infinite Way, Joel traveled throughout
the world for many years as a spiritual teacher and
healer. Although his message was neither organized
nor advertised, students of The Infinite Way have
multiplied as individuals from around the world share
his spiritual wisdom. He is the author of more than
thirty books, most of which continue to remain in
lively demand and which are highly praised by the
current spiritual luminaries.

Joel Goldsmith has opened a door in my soul. He has
helped me immeasurably in my search for peace.
Marianne Williamson, author of The Gift of Change

A new generation of mature seekers, receptive to spiritual
truth, is now discovering Joel Goldsmith’s teachings,
which have lost none of their relevance, aliveness and
power. I foresee that those teachings will reach and
impact even more people in the 21st century than during
his lifetime. Joel Goldsmith’s inspired and profoundly
inspiring books represent a vital contribution to the
spiritual awakening of humanity.
Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

I have an 8×10 picture of Joel Goldsmith on my writing
table. I feel his presence with me every day – I
consider Joel to be one of my most important teachers.
His wisdom guides me in all of my work.
Dr. Wayne Dyer, Ph.D., author of The Power of Intention

Joel Goldsmith is the ultimate teacher of spiritual wisdom.
Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., author of Love is Letting Go of Fear

 


During December, I compiled a summarized or synoptic version of the book, The Thunder of Silence, that has been posted on the Infinite Way Hub website and is available to download as a free e-book. This book, originally published in 1961, was one of four or five books that Joel noted were among his most important spiritual contributions.

Here is the introduction I wrote for the book synopsis:

The following is an abbreviated format, chapter by chapter, of the principles and key spiritual concepts that Joel outlines in this book. Consider them the highlighted pearls of truth. Some of the sentences and short paragraphs are the exact wording, as they appear in the text. Others have been slightly shortened, condensed, or rearranged. With a specific topic, like healing, the segments of it mentioned throughout a chapter have been brought together. Some of the statements that contain the personal pronoun, “I,” were changed from pronouns like “we” or “you” so that these sentences can be read and used like a quieting thought, much like a peaceful prayer of affirmation and truth—thoughts to use while the mind slows its pace, deepens, and enters the receptive state of Silence at the center of being. In such profound stillness, the rumblings of thunder are heard.

What is apart then?

A thought vibrates each silk strand.
Whose need unanswered?

Infinite supply.
Endowed with Divine knowing.
Our birthright is peace.

Let calm conviction
govern, guide your heart, thoughts, deeds.
The Web fills all space.

Celebrate freedom

Wake up to the Light.

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.

 
img_1610
 


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.
Chris Maser, all-around wonderful husband and visionary
