PATIENCE EQUALS TRANQUILITY

It is in giving patience
that we receive patience.
What flows out, flows in.

Some individuals are born with an innately
calmer temperament. Others are not.

Some are more stable, steady, even-keeled, unflappable, imperturbable. Others are not.

Thus, a state of effortless patience is more
inherent for some than for others.

I am of the “others are not” disposition.
My husband is of the ilk of the unflustered.
He is, for the most part, a rock of
levelheaded tranquility.

For some of us, it’s very much an
evolutionary journey of perseverance to
acquire and, as a consequence, respond
with the spiritual quality of patience.
Then, we’ve arrived at the pristine
headwaters of equability!

I am learning that outward patience—
the effect—begins initially with inner
patience—the cause—towards myself.
Everything that I am and you are affects the
sender but is also a gentle or harsh wave
felt as it spreads throughout the universe.

When the unruffled waters of patience
are inwardly peaceful, I then have utter
patience with you—the receiver.

In this sense, I reap the initial blessing
and gift of patience, because I am in
self-governance of myself. And, you
are secondarily the recipient of my calmness.
Harmony has circulated within and without.
The more I am patient, the more you and you
and you and the world settles into a greater
degree of balance and accord. The same
result occurs when any person is at peace.

But, it begins, first and foremost,
inside of my self-home in the realization
that there is no such thing as any outer
influence but only what I accept and therefore
self-create within the confines of my mind
and beliefs. In other words, someone or
something or some condition or some location
or some event doesn’t “do it to me.” I do
it always unto myself! I’ve done it to me!

Patience is a practice of continual
self-awareness wherein the reflex movement
of frustration, irritability, and impatience
are caught before I have an outburst of
energy directed at unsuspecting you.
Emotionally, it may likely cast you
backwards by surprise!

St. Teresa of Avila wisely knew that,
“The gift of patience is patience.” It’s
a simple thing but not always easy to
demonstrate, especially if, in our formative
years of “conditioning” at home, there was
a parent or other significant person who
modeled impatience a good deal of the time,
sometimes in the form of an unspoken or
spoken motto of “get it right the first
time!” Later, the inner work begins to
re-condition and transform our self, moving
the inherent choice and power from
external sources to the interiority of Self.

Still another remarkable outcome in this
feedback loop of awareness and conscious
self-conditioning
is that it again begins
within me. The patience I am treating you
with is the patience I am originally treating
myself with. I am not inwardly trouncing
myself or losing it with unconscious reactivity
shown as annoyance, anger, or fear. This is
love given twice.

Patience is the natural abiding
state when the mind becomes quiet, the heart
slows its pace, and the whole mind-body system
settles into comfort, safety, relaxation, and
true rest. Be still. Be still. Be still
and reside in Self-mastery.

The ultimate of patience derives from
unconditional love—a love that does not find
fault, try to change, compare, make lesser than,
make fun of, criticize, condemn, or judge even me.
Love is really another name for peace, which
rests upon the inner foundation of patience.

 


 

Be completely humble and gentle;
be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Ephesians 4:2

At the end of the way is freedom.
Till then, patience.
Buddha

THE FULLNESS OF AN EMPTY ROOM

 

“Perhaps you know the story that is told in two different ways. One is an ancient Hebrew teaching and the other an ancient Hindu teaching, but the story is the same in both cases. There was a disciple who went to his master and asked, ‘Please, Master, show me God. Let me know God; let me be in God’s presence.’ Over and over he appealed to his master, but the wise master did nothing about it except smile and say, ‘Yes, 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 only take you into the first. After that, you are on your own. If you find the way, you will ultimately 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 Jehovah God. And after the disciple got accustomed to the idea of this room, the feel of it, he felt something wrong. He said, ‘No, this isn’t it. The atmosphere is too heavy here. I will have to go further.’

So, he found his way into the next room. After entering the second room, he commenced to breathe more freely. As he got accustomed to the surroundings, he saw that again he was in an empty room, except for a statue of Jehovah God made of crystal. He felt the lightness of that crystal; he felt the lightness of the atmosphere of the room, and he said, ‘This is more like it!’ But after a while, he realized that even though this was more like it, it wasn’t it.

“So began the search for the entrance to the third room. You know he found it, and you also know what he found. He found himself in an empty room—completely empty. There was nobody there but He!”

Joel S. Goldsmith, Rising in Consciousness, pages 106-7

ALL LIFE IS EQUAL


Tiny grains of sand.
Billowing clouds sweeping by.
All life is equal.


Children play, laugh, run.
Grandparents beam their great joy.
All life is valued.


Horses running free.
Snow leopards grace mountain heights.
Each precious life lived.


Gender, race, creed, age.
Each a blessing of their own.
No life less, greater.


Dragonflies circling.
Shaded in the arms of trees.
All life is Spirit.


Trusting hands reach out.
Let us be kind guardians
for other’s viewpoints.


Flower faces glow
Sun’s golden, glimmering light.
Let us take it in.


The way forward calls.
Life embraced in unity.
Bees drinking nectar.

 



Within each of us there is a gift. As
[St.] Paul tells us there is only one spirit
that animates us all, but that spirit
brings itself forth in different ways.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Rising in Consciousness


Now—in this minute—you are living,
for you cannot live yesterday and you
cannot live tomorrow. The only possible
thing you can do is live here and now
this minute. And, of course, tomorrow in
your experience will really be now also.
Otherwise it won’t be at all. It has to be
now. It is all a continuous now, now—
now! This minute is now. Next minute
will be now. It’s all—now!
Joel S. Goldsmith, Rising in Consciousness


What will you choose now? To consciously
live in the state of awareness of equality,
as though all life matters?

MUSICAL CONSCIOUSNESS

 
 

Divine music heard
for persons on that wavelength.
Timeless transcribers.

 

Melodies float through
in pure, original states.
Masterpiece received.

 

In silence, tuned in,
compositions can be earthed
for those receptive.

 

Some are so aware
who can embody rich sounds,
their own true note caught.

 



If you don’t go within,
you go without.
If you are empty of self,
you’re full of Self.
When you are free of desire,
you realize and experience
that everything is.
You have opened to the state
of consciousness wherein
everything already IS.
Divine Consciousness IS.

SPIRITUALLY INEXPRESSIBLE


Some inner moments
can be inexpressible,
beyond what words tell.


Insightful silence.
Let it percolate inward.
Keep the sacred close.


Jewels are secret.
Many misunderstand Truth.
Higher realms too pure.


Wisdom is Spirit,
the Light of revelation
at inmost Center.

 



Every spiritual impulse that takes place
in the consciousness of a master is felt
in the consciousness of all those who are
attuned to the Spirit. …Never can there
be freedom on earth until there is
spiritual freedom in the individual.
Never will one be free until freedom
first is felt in the Soul.
Joel S. Goldsmith, an illumined soul

LISTEN—YOUR HEART LEADS YOU TRUE

 

Let yourself be silently drawn
by the strange pull of
what you really love.
Rumi, 13th century Persian mystic

 

Your heart has to be your guide.
If you are sincere, you will know
where to go and what to do. If you
are working out of your ego, you will
find fault with everything. I can tell
you this much, everyone is in their
right place. There are no mistakes.
None have been made. None
are being made.

Those people who are with certain
gurus belong right where they are,
for the time being. Turn within
and your heart will tell
you where to go.
Robert Adams, disciple of Ramana Maharshi

IN TRUTH ALL GODLINGS

A goblet is created from glass, yet it is
simply glass formed. It never becomes
anything other than glass. Thus, the
expression of the goblet is always united
and indivisible from its original state
—not two separate substances but at
all times one.

 

A star appears to be an isolated entity in its spacious surroundings, yet eternally its context is the stellar background within which the embrace of the sky holds it.

 

A branch extends from the tree’s
trunk, nonetheless
its aliveness and
fruitfulness is in
its connectivity to
the whole seen and
unseen system of
the tree.
 

 

A wave surges up, expressing a unique, individual moment in the ocean’s ever-changing ebb and flow and then settles back into the entirety of the global waters, forever joined with that body.

 

A majestic mountain peak is thrust upwards, creating a focalized masterpiece of beauty that still rests within the context of the landscape, its parental bedrock of materials, and the forces of nature wherein lies its creation and structure—one vast panorama.

 

The multiplicity of individual manifestations and expressions throughout the universe—every appearance of what seems to be a singularity—is in truth all godlings within the one divine, spiritual Presence in whose Consciousness the collective godling family is eternally unified.

 


 

Every natural object is a conductor of divinity
and only by coming in contact with them… may we
be filled with the Holy Ghost.
John Muir, naturalist and mystic

 

All life is one, though it has
a diversity of manifestations. All law is one,
but it is applicable and operative in a variety
of ways. There is not one law for matter and
another for mind, not one for the material and
visible and another for the spiritual and invisible.
There is the same law throughout.
James Allen, beloved British mystic

 


This post is dedicated to my dad, who today would have been 102 years old! Another post, “For the Love of Dad” was written in his remembrance for an incredibly gentle soul who graced my life and is eternally present with me and in my heart.

THE DIVINE CHAPTER

States, stages we pass through.
The soul unfolds freshly born.
Layers left behind.

Forward, backward steps,
detours, scrapped knees, hills traversed.
Clouds, rain, gold sun rays.

Always does the seed
of full divinity wait,
ever receptive.

Soil damp, fertile.
Hidden does new life break free.
The start, end assured.


In the presence of Spirit, earth is revealed as heaven,
for they never were different or separate.


 


To bring forth music or art, something more than
an understanding of the principles of painting or
music is necessary, and that something more is
called soul. Without a soul, a painter is not
an artist, nor a musician a musician.
Joel S. Goldsmith, master mystic and teacher

 

In deep meditation, when one shuts out the land
of finitude and matter, the realm of Eternity, the
vast heavenly kingdom of God’s omniscience, is
found to lie tier upon tier in endless vistas
before the inner vision.
Paramahansa Yogananda, revered master
and teacher of the East and West

NOW IS NON-COMPARATIVE


When there’s only now,
what’s there to compare it with?
Presence is what is.


A mother swallow
feeding her newly hatched chicks
only knows this now.


Pear blossoms open
to absorb spring’s light, clear air.
Raindrops nourish now.


Alive is this breath.
A heartbeat is this full pulse.
Not the last, next one.


The entirety
of eternality flows
right now forever.


Live in present tense.
Now is all that can arrive.
Instant by instant.

 


A seashell never becomes a red rose, a mourning dove,
a snow leopard, or a rainbow. A moment never becomes
anything other than it is.

 


Be happy for this moment.
This moment is your life.
Omar Khayyam

Wherever you are be all there.
Jim Elliot
