SPIRITUAL IMMERSION

 

When we are immersed in the Spirit, it means we are:

Self-sufficient,

Self-complete,

Self-graced.

When you are immersed in the Divine, which is your true, inner Self, you are already ALL that you are. No outward thing, experience, situation, condition, locality, or person can add any measure to your intrinsic wholeness. Your inward fullness is already present. You can share all of life’s joyous wonders together, of course, but each one’s individual Light shines forth from within.

As well, there is always an inverse relationship between the material and spiritual realms. The more you are in the mind-set of “me,” “my,” and “mine,” the more you are earthbound in a personal sense of self, feeling that the responsibility for your life is entirely on your shoulders. The more your consciousness is an expression of the “I am that I am,” the more you are spiritually immersed and boundlessly love-filled.
 


 

In Hinduism, OM or AUM is a sacred sound and
spiritual symbol (pratima) referring to Atman (which
signifies the soul or self within) and Brahman (which
is the ultimate reality; entirety of the universe; the
supreme, divine spirit; cosmic principles, truth). This
syllable is among the most important symbols in
Hinduism and is often found at the beginning and
the end of chapters in the Vedas, the Upanishads,
and other Hindu texts.

A DIVINE VISITATION

 

A little house finch
came to perch on our rolled blind.
Squatted, it peers in.

Dusk is drawing near.
This seems a safe bird haven.
Sacred moment shared.

Feathered and human
are the same Divine Being
appearing as Life.

 


 

No experience can come to you except as the unfolding
of your own consciousness, and once you realize that
all is God, unfolding and disclosing itself, the experiences
you attract to yourself are on the level of this realization.
Joel S. Goldsmith, The Invisible Nature of Your Life

with the evolutionary achievement of a bird. If I
had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.

“Cool Facts” about the House Finch (Haemorhous mexicanus):

• The House Finch was originally a bird of the western United
States and Mexico. In 1940 a small number of finches were
turned loose on Long Island, New York, after failed attempts
to sell them as cage birds (“Hollywood finches”). They
quickly started breeding and spread across almost all of
the eastern United States and southern Canada within the
next 50 years.

• The total House Finch population across North America is staggering. Scientists estimate between 267 million and 1.4 billion individuals.

• House Finches were introduced to Oahu from San Francisco
sometime before 1870. They had become abundant on all the
major Hawaiian Islands by 1901.

• The red of a male House Finch comes from pigments
contained in its food during molt (birds can’t make bright
red or yellow colors directly). So the more pigment in the
food, the redder the male. This is why people sometimes
see orange or yellowish male House Finches. Females prefer
to mate with the reddest male they can find, perhaps raising
the chances they get a capable mate who can do his part in
feeding the nestlings.

• House Finches feed their nestlings exclusively plant foods,
a fairly rare occurrence in the bird world. Many birds that
are vegetarians as adults still find animal foods to keep
their fast-growing young supplied with protein.

• The oldest known House Finch was a female, and at least
11 years, 7 months old when she was recaptured and
released during banding operations in New York in 1985, the
same state where she had been banded in 1973.

PERPETUAL INSEPARABILITY

 

Always the sun shines.
Sunbeams stream from the center.
Visually one.

The water, ice cube—
same substance, different form.
Ocean of oneness.

A tree and a branch—
same body, different parts.
Forest unity.

A single factor
creates unification.
LOVE, Love, love it is.


 


 

On the lotus leaf of your life is trembling the dewdrop
of God’s consciousness. Realize that! Find the
connection between the dewdrop and its Infinite
Source and you shall find Him.
Paramahansa Yogananda, spiritual Master and loved teacher

SPIRITUAL SURRENDER

A well can’t be filled
from above, outside its walls
but from underground.

When we walk the Path
the personal sense of self
is surrendered, cleansed.

To seek mastery,
to be an empty vessel,
go sit at the well.

New water comes from
within—pure, clear, infinite.
Emptied we are filled.
 


 

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said,
“rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
John 7:38, New International Version

• Choose Your Fork Of The Path

GOD’S GARDEN

 

 

In morning’s soft light,
the garden hushed, freshly dewed,
my caretaking starts.

Came the inner Voice.
“This is My Eden Garden.
With your heart love it.

Here, you work for Me.
Your service is holy watch.
This is sacred ground.

Each bee, leaf, rose, task
your mission creates beauty.
The small becomes great.”

 

 


 

Except the Beloved build the garden,
they labor in vain that build it.
They who labor as holy gardeners
build it as instruments of love.
Zane’s version of Psalm 127

 

One soul can help the whole world…
The service is here beside you, and waiting in your
own heart every day. The greatest service that anyone
can give is continually to think aright—continually
to send forth love, to forgive.
White Eagle, beloved spiritual teacher

THE “FATHER” CONSCIOUSNESS

 

What is “the Father?”
The Father is universal Consciousness;
the Substance of all form; divine Mind
acting as your mind and manifesting as
limitless ideas; immortal Life appearing
as the harmonious individual life.

Seek everything in life from the kingdom within.
Draw your good from the infinity of your own
being. Touch that center, the kingdom within,
and let the Father reveal your heritage.
This is to live by Grace.

Joel S. Goldsmith, The Heart of Mysticism

SPIRITUAL WAITING

 

Go down to Egypt.
There you shed more to wait, wait.
Alone in the dark.

One plateau to next,
the hard, hushed, hidden, holy
un-selfed-ness time.

Weightless, the light grows.
Inner vision sees God’s form.
Our eternal form.

 



 

The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation.
When everything is lost, and all seems darkness,
then comes the new life and all that is needed.
Joseph Campbell

God, who is everywhere, never leaves us. Yet He seems
sometimes to be present, sometimes absent. If we
do not know Him well, we do not realize that He
may be more present to us when he is absent
than when He is present.
Thomas Merton

The Abyss was the place of transformation for
the mystics. In its depths shone the
illumination of the ‘divine dark,’ where
divinity revealed itself. …[One] of the
great mystics, St. John of the Cross, speaks
of the ‘secret stair’ by which one descends
in the dark night to meet the Beloved—the way
the soul journeys into union with God. But
prior to that union of ecstatic rapture with
the Beloved comes the Dark Night of the Soul,
that painful period of privation when one
feels imprisoned in The Abyss.
Linda Schierse Leonard

Only those willing to walk through the dark night
will be able to see the beauty of the moon
and the brilliance of the stars.
Archbishop Socrates Vilegas

WHEN JUDGMENTS CEASE

 

 

Misty mountain peaks.
Rarified air, pristine view.
Vast landscape stretches.

What is there to judge
of black, white, bad, good, wrong, right
at high altitudes?

Worldly life, status,
awards, money, big car, house.
What fleeting value…

Judge not self, others.
Let go remarks, reviews, blame.
Silent mountains speak.

 

 


 

Drop the titles. You don’t need to call yourselves
lamas or roshis. Drop the costumes.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun,
the Moon, and the Truth.
The Buddha
