POLITICAL INDIFFERENCE

“If you want to maintain a spiritual attitude, you must remember, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.” You must learn to stay as much as you can in the atmosphere of the Christ. It is all right to be a good citizen and decide whom you would like to see elected and then go out and vote for him [or her]. But don’t let it trouble you if he doesn’t get elected or if it looks at the last minute as though he might be defeated. That is not your problem at all. If you are on this [spiritual] path, you are in the world but not of it. On this path it really doesn’t make any difference to you who gets elected, or if no one gets elected. You, if you are depending on spiritual security, on spiritual consciousness, on the presence of God, will be safe no matter who is president or dictator; you will be safe whether there are atomic bombs or not. After all, you can’t take the responsibility for the rest of the world….

Your problem is individually—you. And that’s not selfishness. The only reason why you are important and why it is necessary to keep this spiritual integrity is because one on this path provides safety, security and power for thousands. Your keeping your mind off of the human problems of the world and stayed on the spiritual things, may be affecting tens of thousands of people….”

Joel S. Goldsmith, Consciousness in Transition,
pages 160-1

CHOICE, CHOOSE, CHOSEN, CONSEQUENCE

Aqua waters shine.
Warm, pure, soft sand joys my feet.
Inviting ocean.

I’m captivated.
Bird calls break into silence.
Gentle wave movement.

All that is here is
this pristine moment of peace.
Fresh, vital, perfect.

The past hour is gone.
Memory stirs it—or not.
Thoughts hold on—or not.

Sunset is far off.
Time forward doesn’t exist.
Why include it here?

Put everything down
but this exquisite second.
Otherwise, it’s lost.

Constant choice arrives.
What you choose you encounter.
Chosen options sprout.

The universe is
an interactive system.
Your impact is known.


 

Choosing to be in divine alignment
is the purest refinement.
Chris Maser

SPIRITUAL UN-LEARNING

 

On the mystic path
there is so much to un-learn
about “human-ness”:

Prayer is silence,
not telling, asking, seeking
but a listening.

Affluent life is
giving, serving, sending out,
sharing the rich flow.

Un-forgiveness binds
us first to self-punishment.
Forgiving frees both.

Un-see falsities.
Judge not any appearance.
Thin, fat, young, old, poor.

Outward searches gain
a fleeting satisfaction,
soon to quest again.

Divine origins
means nothing needs to be gained.
Sit in awe, breathe, rest.

Fulfillment of life
is to realize fullness now.
Inward completeness.

None are left out in
the spiritual picture.
Love is the bequest.

Light already is.
Grace is the continuity.
Wake up, re-learn Truth.

Mystics throughout time
are entrusted with clear sight.
Un-real human “dream.”

The process involves
the degree of remembrance
of our Home, sweet Home.

 


 

Awake, earth is heaven!
Arise, see with true eyes
the spiritual universe.
 

Opening to the divine Reality merely brings
to light that which already is.
Spiritual re-learning attained!

THE ONENESS OF CAUSE-EFFECT

 

One relationship—
inseparability—
links cause with effect.

Cause is the substance
of each effect created,
concurrent as one.

A cause and effect
co-exist in the same place
Not here, beyond there.

A loving act moves
an effect of love outward—
the same sent, received.

Where a problem is
the answer resides also.
Seek them not apart.

Thoughts that challenge you
include the perfect answer.
One coincident.

A seed holds the tree
concealed within its body.
Completeness they are.

You sharing a coin
into someone’s outreached hand—
single giver, gift.

A caterpillar
molts into a chrysalis.
Butterfly appears.

The stages are there
eternally together
all joined in one place.

Simultaneous
effect resides in the cause.
Creation lives here.

Succession can’t be
other than what causes it.
Pause, ponder oneness.

 


 

God, as creative principle, is the cause of
its manifested being appearing as effect.
Joel S. Goldsmith

SPIRITUAL GROUND

Wherever we are at this particular moment we are
because of our readiness for that particular step.
…We are where we are because of our developed or
undeveloped state of consciousness. We will never
be in any other place or any other position than
where we are, except through the development and
unfoldment of our spiritual consciousness. Therefore,
instead of looking back with regret, instead of looking
forward with wishes, desirous to be somewhere else
and doing something else, let us again get back on
spiritual ground. Let us here and now, at this very
moment, begin to acknowledge that the place whereon
I stand is holy ground. …The moment you make the
recognition you are on holy ground, you are in
and of holy spiritual consciousness.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Rising in Consciousness, pages 219-220

 

The only use of knowledge of the past is
to equip us for the present. The present contains
all that there is. It is holy ground; for it is
the past, and it is the future.
Alfred North Whitehead

 
 

Through life, I want to walk gently. I
want to treat all of life—the earth and its people
—with reverence. I want to remove my shoes in the
presence of holy ground. As much as possible, I
want to walk in peace…
Steve Goodier

 
 

Wherever a dancer stands is holy ground.
Martha Graham

 

Tread softly! All the earth is holy ground.
Christina Rossetti

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.

 


 

Genius is eternal patience.
Michelangelo

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

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

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.
