PRAYER IS…

 

For most, prayer is
an asking, pleading up, out.
Please, please God do this…

Prayer isn’t mind act,
conjuring a great wish list,
or desperation.

Prayer is inside.
Quiet rest on sacred ground.
Beyond busy thought.

Prayer is clearness.
Free from small self, head, ego.
Uncluttered enough.

It’s receptiveness,
and it reverses the flow.
Living through Spirit.

Solitude inward.
Outer dependencies gone.
Emptied yet filled, whole.

No thing left to want.
No self seeking its own gain.
Not served but serving.

Light of Grace reveals
darkness no real existence.
Cloudless, perfect sky.


 


It is the mind that parades and vaunts itself.
Let the mind be still, and “at an hour when ye think not,”
behold the Experience [of God].
Joel S. Goldsmith, illumined Master and beloved teacher

UNIVERSALITY

Garden of Eden—
that wondrous, grand melting pot.
Soul-wise same eyes ours.

What is true of you,
the universality,
is same truth of me.

Realness exists in
each part of Divinity.
Cats, dogs, birds, life lived.

The light inside you,
your spiritual nature
is mine shining too.

The love you send forth
raises the whole wide world.
Blessedness received.

An invisible
thread from one to another.
A Circle Golden.

“NO ANXIETIES”

 
 

“That’s what happens when you have no anxieties…”

The imagination of Charles Schultz gave us the immortal
Snoopy cartoon. He created a wee bird named “Woodstock,”
who lives in the mastery of Being-ness—resting in absolute
peace in the still, deep Silence. Woodstock is a living
example of the Ancient Wisdom of all trust in
the infinite, invisible reality of Divinity.
This bird Master resides in the precious,
present moment…

 


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• Slow Down!

• Are You Able To Be Quiet?

• Peace

• Spiritual Silence

• Silence Is Power

THE NEED IS KNOWN BEFOREHAND

new-roof

The Source is the source for every possible need.

Last year, we received an influx of revenue from a source outside of our normal channel of income. It felt like a great, good gift! We were grateful!

This year, we had to have a new roof put on our home. It was a more expensive re-roofing project than would have been normal, because we had to have plywood put on the roof before the new shingles could be nailed down. Though our gutters were in very good shape, we had to have some minor work done on them after the new roof was completed.

Together, these were a large, costly renovation. But, as the Source would have it, knowing our need in advance, it turned out that we paid only a wee bit more than a hundred dollars from our usual account. In essence, this is what our new, lovely roof cost us out of pocket!

If we trust in the presence of the Divine as our Source for all that we may possibly need—when the need arises in the current moment—is there a single thing to fret or be anxious about? If we live by faith, will the crocked place inevitably be made straight for us, as we approach that part of our path?

Yesterday, I saw a homeless man counting the cans and bottles he had collected from the streets, which he put into a couple of large plastic bags. A very cold wind was blowing, and he only had on a flimsy outer jacket. His reddish-looking hands were bare and dirty from counting his treasures.

Out of nowhere, a lady on a bike appeared. She stopped, called “Sir” to the man to get his attention, and then asked if he had a pair of gloves for his hands. He sheepishly replied, “No.” “Would you like this pair of gloves?” she inquired. “Yes, thank you, I sure would.”

And she rode away down the street, disappearing as quickly as she had arrived. Was this kind man’s need known before he even dreamed he might have a warm pair of gloves to wear while he scoured the streets for the coins the recycled cans and bottles would eventually reap?

If you look back over some of the amazing events and experiences in your life, can you recall the magical, mysterious moments when the exact thing, or person, or book, or directions showed up at the precise time of need?

Yes, absolutely, Divinity does work its wonders in perfect ways before we even have a glimmer of the needs that will arise. Trust, trust, and relax…

When we are at one with our true identity,
Spirit joyously smoothes the path in
a beautiful and harmonious manner.

SPIRITUAL OCEAN

800px-circular_diffraction_ripples_at_point_reyes_lighthouse

Consider the sea.
Wave upon wave upon wave.
The great Soul body.

What the ocean is,
its life, power, strength, rhythm
is what the wave is.

Each wave is a part,
not apart from the vast whole.
Inseparable.

Each wave a neighbor
to the next across the breadth.
Each wave in context.

The ocean and wave.
Spiritual Family.
No start, no ending.

The ocean in calm,
living continuity.
What else can there be?

• “One Body”

• The Fabric Of Oneness

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.

“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.

CALM CONVICTION

 
600px-dew_on_spider_web_luc_viatour

If the Universe
is one, whole Web related,
What is apart then?

Who can be lonely?
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
from worldly dependencies.
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.
