SPIRITUALLY ATTENDED

All divine Presence.
No matter what it looks like.
All divine Presence.

Tempests, tests, troubles
point us in the direction
of all hidden Truth.

Let the external
illusions dissolve to nil.
See as the Self sees.

Under the Bodhi,
Buddha’s vision pierced maya.
You, too, are Buddha.

 

All One. All God. All good.

 


 

If you need respite from inharmonies…
go to some peaceful place and stay
alone for awhile, listening to the soft
sounds of nature and of God within.
Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the Self-realized Ones

LIFE’S SPIRITUAL UPGRADES

At times shifts rumble
in the background for awhile.
Then, the unmasking.

Like a seed planted
underground gathering strength.
One day visible.

The seed has to die
to make room for the next stage.
Old life precedes new.

Be not in bondage
to “forms” whose intent is done.
Allow “death’s” process.

Courage is to face
each “desert” experience
with indifference.

Released from fears, doubts.
Ordeals viewed from high wisdom.
Blessings in disguise.

Welcome advanced states.
Un-prison those spent patterns.
Change brings lit signposts.

The emptying out
reveals opportunities,
spacious openings.

Rebirth first unseen.
Upgrade of growth now attained.
Awakened, stride free!

THE PURPOSE OF MEDITATION

“There is no other way to open our consciousness
to the realm of Soul than through meditation or
prayer, through contemplating the things of God.

. . .

“As we learn to listen to the “still small voice,”
the Spirit of God opens our consciousness to the
immediate awareness of spiritual good. We are
filled with the divine energies of Spirit; we are
illumined with the light of the Soul; we are
refreshed with the water of Life and fed with
the meat, which does not perish. This spiritual
food is never rationed to those who learn to meet
God within the temple of their being.

“To receive the grace of God, we must retire
from the world of sense. We must learn to silence
the material senses and have audience with God.
God must become to us a living reality, a divine
presence, a holy Spirit within; and this can only
be when we have learned to meditate, to pray,
and to contemplate God.

“[In such a way,] the wave is one with the ocean,
indivisible and inseparable from the whole ocean.
All that the ocean is, the wave is; and all the
power, all the energy, all the strength, all the
life, and all the substance of the ocean are
expressed in every wave. The wave has access
to all that lies beneath it, for the wave
really is the ocean, just as the ocean is the
wave…. There is no place where one wave comes
to an end and the next wave begins, so that the
oneness of the wave with the ocean includes the
oneness of every wave with every other wave.”

Joel S. Goldsmith, The Infinite Way, pages 92, 93, and 95

THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER—ONE

 

A neighbor used to tell us the exact number and
weight of tomatoes he’d grown in a season.

Some individuals attribute most causes to “TMB”
—too many birthdays.

Others seem fixated on every degree up and
down in temperature, checking the weather
station multiple times per day.

There is a known “normal” range of blood
pressure, and for good health we must keep
ourselves between the “good” numbers.

The American culture has been conditioned
to think that “thin is more beautiful,” and
so for many of us we agonize over every pound
upward as our jeans become snugger. And, we
rejoice as we drop to lower numbers on the
scale, considered a supreme victory.

Many personalize their sense of worth
by the dollars in the bank and/or invested, by
the cost and prestige of the car they drive,
and by the upscale reputation of the
neighborhood where they dwell.

Countless “numerical” examples could
be given to illustrate how the human world
and its perspectives revolve around figures,
scores, grades, data, statistics, records,
accounts, awards, wins and losses.

Numbers! Numbers!! Numbers are an over-riding
factor of control and evaluation in our global
society and in individual lives—if we allow
such external factors to reign over us and
tell us who we are.

Yet, do numbers actually have any inherent
value in and of themselves unless they are given
such value by consensus and conditioning?

One number absolutely does—the number ONE.

The central bio-physical, spiritual
principle of the universe is that every living
thing begins with one cell chemically combining
with another cell in the union of one.

Similarly, all computer languages originate
from ones and zeros. So, the foundational
feature of the universe is comprised of the
ones and zeros of the elementary particles
and electrons, which again combine one at
a time to form one, integrated system.

There may be 195 sovereign countries on
earth today, but there is only one globe, a
singular body in space in the one universe.

There are now 446 individual essays and
poems on this SunnyCat site covering a large
diversity of topics. But, I wrote them one by
one over the course of 9 years—an illustration
of the cumulative effect and power of one
and of how much one actually counts.

The entire astrological birth chart is set
up on the basis of one number—the degree
of the Ascendant. All the signs and planets
are then arranged around the circular chart
according to that one and only number.

Altogether, this Principle of Oneness is
variously named as the Source, Life Eternal,
Divine Presence, the Great Mother, Buddha,
or God, to name a few.

By whatever term or concept, the sustaining
influence of the universe is One Being appearing
as infinite form, variety, and experience.

Rest assured, the One Creator is lovingly,
eternally sustaining Its One Creation in harmony,
beauty, and peace.

BE FREE OF FEAR

Fear takes over when
the imagined future lures.
Fear enters that space.

Our fright, fear delights.
The upper hand gained, fear laughs.
Fear feels the master.

Be not an effect
of fear’s dark games, threats, untruths.
Fear’s face is to shame.

We shift the power
by staying in the present.
Freedom is that close.

Fear can’t trespass now.
This moment is the center
of pure awareness.

Take not a concern.
Accept all that is present.
Unshackled, you’re free.

 


 

Be watchful of doing something prematurely
and unconsciously for the wrong reason
due to the wrong emotion.
Fear’s clever masks are many!

 


For a longer, “conversational” look at the nuances, tactics, and tyranny of fear, you can read all the “Conversations with Fear.” With knowledge of how fear actually operates, starting with the initial essay of “The Countries of the Mind,” you are free of fear’s vice grip and undermining influence. Be free of fear forever!


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• Eternity And The Banishment Of Fear

• Beware The Stinger Woman!  (the sabotaging, inner voice)

• Shrouded in “A Dark Night”

• Pain Body Attack!

• Change the Script

BEHIND THE APPEARANCE BEHOLD THE LIGHT

 

Dim light casts shadows.
Clouds enshroud and veil the sun.
Dark seems a power.

Is the sun’s light gone?
When clouds open or depart,
was that darkness real?

Dark moments include
grief, pain, failure, fear, envy.
Behind is the sun.

In the light of day,
Light did not dispel darkness.
It shows its absence.

Reach for the light of
spiritual discernment.
Where light is, Light is.
 


 


 

Those who on earth attain valiant victory over
darkness will bask in the light and glory of a tangible
peace and inner happiness.
Paramahansa Yogananda
 

Everything has its basis in the invisible appearing
visibly and tangibly. …creation is an act of an
invisible principle visibly manifest.
Joel S. Goldsmith

ever vigilant in care,

Tao, Allah, Krishna, Christ, I.
All Divine Presence.

HEAVEN’S REALM IS WITHIN YOU

 

    “We may go to a teacher or to a book for guidance and help along the way, but we cannot go to a teacher or to a book for God. For that, we have to go to our own Soul, to the innermost depths of our own being. No man, woman, or book can reveal God to us. All any one of them can do is to show us the path along which we may travel until we get back into the kingdom of our own being, the kingdom of our own Soul, and there find God.

    “It is like the disciple who went to his master and asked, ‘Please, Master, show me God. Let me know God. Let me stand in God’s presence.’

    “Over and over he made this appeal to his master, but the wise master did nothing about it except smile and say, ‘Yes, in time, 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 take you into the first one only. After that you will have to proceed by yourself. If you find the way, ultimately you will 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 the Jehovah God, but after he became accustomed to the feel of this room, he sensed that something was wrong. ‘No, this is not it. There is too heavy an atmosphere here. I shall have to go further.’

    “So he found his way into the next room, and after entering this second room, he began to breathe more freely. But as before, when he familiarized himself with the surroundings, he saw that he was once more in an empty room except for a crystal statue of the Jehovah God. He felt the lightness of the crystal; he felt the lightness of the atmosphere of the room, and said to himself, ‘This is more like it.’ But after a while he realized that this, too, was not It.

    “With that, he began to search for the entrance to the third room, and when he discovered it, he found himself in an empty room, a completely empty room. There was nobody there but himself.”

Joel S. Goldsmith, an excerpt from “The World Is New,” pages 87-88.
