MOMENT BY MOMENTS OF GRACE

789px-Work_life_balance_rat_race

No longer a rat
in the race to rush, conquer,
revved in high-paced gear.

Fuel tank exhausted.
Constant over extension.
Collapsed in a heap.

Life brings its choices.
Externally driven mode?
Let the herd dash by?

800px-Costa_Rican_Cowboys

Sane picks are options.
Life gives us what we create.
Quiet paths are there.

Busy mind, thoughts, words
no longer have dominance.
Uncluttered, free space.

Grace comes in silence.
Spiritual certainty
smoothes all rough edges.

Whatever the need,
Grace is daily abundance.
Let Grace take your hand.
 



Grace is safety, affluence, timeliness, guidance,
peace, and Divinity’s eternal Presence.
Grace makes a world of difference—from doing to being.
Grace is the allness in the moment.
Grace’s signature is secreted within all life,
but the door must be consciously opened
by each one in an act of trust.
Live out from the basis of being Grace,
rather than seeking Grace.
Rest in the Grace of still water.

800px-Lech_da_Pertan_y_Fermedes_sun_Mastlé
 

Silence and seclusion are the secrets of success.
In this modern life of activity, there is only one way
to separate yourself from its ceaseless demands:
get away from it once in a while.
Paramahansa Yogananda, beloved spiritual Master

“DIVINE DESTINY”

As human beings, we have completely missed the mark
because most of the activities of human beings were
not intended for us, and in our ignorance of our
divine destiny, we went into something quite
unrelated to that destiny.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Beyond Words and Thoughts
 


Hidden inside you
is a clear, soul directive
for your unique gift.

Solely given you.
Divine work placed in your heart.
Destiny’s guidebook.

Listen and receive.
Your true, entrusted calling.
You’re Spirit’s prime choice!

 


 

If we are in the wrong [profession],
it will not be long before we will be
moved into the right [profession].
Joel S. Goldsmith, Beyond Words and Thoughts
 


 
412px-Poster-sized_portrait_of_Barack_Obama_OrigRes

Barack Obama is a perfect example of “divine destiny.”
Who but Barack Obama could ever have been the first
African-American President of the United States?
It was his destiny alone. And he has fulfilled
that divine destiny, elected to this highest
office as a two-term president.


 

Waiting
John Burroughs, writer and poet

Serene, I fold my hands and wait,

Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;

I rave no more ‘gainst time or fate,

For lo! my own shall come to me.



I stay my haste, I make delays,

For what avails this eager pace?

I stand amid the eternal ways,

And what is mine shall know my face.



Asleep, awake, by night or day,

The friends I seek are seeking me;

No wind can drive my bark astray,

Nor change the tide of destiny.



What matter if I stand alone?

I wait with joy the coming years;

My heart shall reap where it hath sown,

And garner up its fruit of tears.

The waters know their own and draw

The brook that springs in yonder height;

So flows the good with equal law

Unto the soul of pure delight.



The stars come nightly to the sky;

The tidal wave unto the sea;

Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,

Can keep my own away from me.

BEAUTY BENEATH SKIN

 
479px-Elder_native_Alaskan_woman_1979_FWS

A wrinkle a day
keeps vanity far away.
What else can we say?

Beauty beneath skin.
The glow forever lasting.
One-of-a-kind chin.

Judge not the surface.
Beauty arises inside.
You take it with you.

Walk with confidence.
Flowing Grace exemplified.
Inward loveliness.

You were born gorgeous.
No mortal life alters Truth.
Exquisite presence.

800px-Jakar_tshechu,_school_children_(15226200413)

 


 

Spiritual consciousness brings astral perception
of the wisdom and beauty that is behind
all material phenomena.
Paramahansa Yogananda, illuminated guru and teacher

 

Life has a bright side and a dark side, for the world
of relativity is composed of light and shadows….
Look only for the good in everything, that you
absorb the quality of beauty.
Paramahansa Yogananda

HEALING PRESENCE

 

Strain and striving gone.
All the swords have been laid down.
Peace of holy Earth.

When all resistance
has fled your inner country.
Healing spreads outward.

Your clearness is felt
from your calm emanations.
Not from words spoken.

Simple of being.
Bending low to wash their feet.
Love only, love, love…

 
497px-GA_da_Lodi_Lavatorio_1500_Gallerie_dell'Accademia_Venecia

 


 

The first task is to heal our self internally, by resting
in and communing with the ever-available, heavenward
Presence. Only in this way does our outer experience
actually transform. In the degree that a person is
healed inwardly does that individual share healing
with those who come within range of their tranquil,
illumined consciousness.

 


Given our spiritual inheritance, the primary soul work
of a lifetime is to experience, firsthand, that
there is absolutely nothing that requires a feather’s
weight of healing. There are no flaws in the Great
Architect’s creative perfection! From the beginning,
all life has been an impeccable, immaculate conception
throughout the entire Universe.

SPIRITUAL SELECTIVITY

1024px-Cornucopia_of_fruit_and_vegetables_wedding_banquet_(cropped)

Life is a banquet.
Choices tantalize senses.
Growth means refinements.

Habits, patterns change.
Release the outlived, past ways.
Lighten the old load.

Let things fall away.
Fresh wine must have clean bottles.
The old taints the new.

Rebirth each moment.
Mind-body gives way to Soul.
Move beyond small self.

Purer life awaits.
“Foods” with much finer texture
to cleanse, purify.

More rarified air
of the one and only Life.
Spirit with Spirit.

New affinities.
All our choices reflect back.
Be transparent, shine!

…most people do not seek for a way of life, which is a radical departure from the conventional human mode of living; and therefore, except among those who follow the mystical path,
little, or perhaps more correctly, nothing is known of the …

[wherein he gives a glimpse of the spiritual way of living].

THE LINEAGE OF FATHERHOOD

750px-Zonsopkomst_Weegje2

Father Sun shining,
the glory of fatherhood.
Above is below.

Father and child one.
Sometimes joyous, heartbreaking.
Earth tests our strength, trust.

Fatherhood sacred
whether a letdown, success.
The two remain One.

Blesssed Fatherhood,
expressing, experiencing.
Love still reigns supreme.

Eternal Father,
thank you for your constant care.
Infinite Father.

419px-Travels_in_Europe_and_America_(1903)_(14593461590)


We assure you that the Great White Spirit is a God
of infinite love and tenderness. And every child of God
is ordained to go through experiences on earth, which will
bring it into that happiness and peace for which it longs
. . . Trust enables you to ‘let go and let God.’ Trust
yourself as a child of God – loved, lovable and lovely.
No matter what has happened in your life, nothing can
destroy that love of the Father-Mother for you.

THE PRECISION WORKERS

So simple is the earth we tread,
So quick with love and life her frame;
Ten thousand years have dawned and fled,
and still her magic is the same.
Stopford A. Brooke, The Earth and Man

599px-The_Blue_Marble


The following ode is dedicated to all of us who have significant astrological placements, such as the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or a collection of planets in one of the productive, methodical, pragmatic Earth signs—Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The renowned astrologer, Marc Edmund Jones, described the Earth signs as “The Tribes of Diligence.” In an enlightened summation, he wrote: “The meaning of earth as both an element of the ancient alchemists and a broad generalization of human character may be summed up as pure self realization.”

Let us rejoice that we are here on Earth to learn the lessons of unassuming service and the joy of earthly incarnation. Within your own birth chart, the Earth signs may or may not be of highlighted significance, but we all have these signs placed around the wheel of the chart, as the sign on three “cusps” or possibly as an “intercepted” sign within the degrees of a given house.

free_chart2
 


The smaller tasks, some might say the lowly tasks,
the ones that require focused persistence,
perhaps without getting much or no credit or recognition.
We who work behind the scenes,
often quietly and with great efficiency,
with an eye to detail and procedural correctness,
with the knowing of how to spell tricky words,
or where to put the comma,
the placement of a garden pot,
which makes it easier to water,
as well as aesthetically pleasing,
or the determination to finish
a complicated project at work.

Generally practical and organized,
we work with gladness!

We who enjoy the simple, the unremarkable activities—
all in their designated and proper order.
These routines and rhythms that many others may eschew
as dull, tedious, boring, at too slow a pace
for those of a more fiery, or cerebral, or dreamy nature.

But we who encompass a more earthy sensibility
like things and life and companionships that are trustworthy,
things we hope to count on in a pinch,
things and situations that are tangible and reasonably certain.
The semi-colons do go where they belong, you know!

And then the Universe utters a great, loud Voice:
“Ha, ha, ha. Life is about change!
Chapters flow from one into another,
sometimes gently, sometimes abruptly,
sometimes with a crash that will bring you to your knees.
So it is wise to accept the moment,
embrace the Now,
as it comes along…
as it is…
Be nimble.
Welcome this day of life in its variability,
its nuances, its spontaneity,
its opportunities to cultivate non-attachment.”

Oh yes, exactitude has its place,
as do the band of precision workers
who reliably show up to proofread a book manuscript,
or plant the row of peas and beans,
or supervise a new, unsure employee, for instance.

But, the carefree music still plays.
A surprise invitation turns up to join a friend
for lunch in half an hour.
The chance seeing of a notice asking for volunteers
to help feed and love the cats at the local animal shelter.

Precision, as it turns out, is living fully
in this moment, as it arrives.
With the proviso to happily keep
your feet connected with the Earth,
while you soar up into the Heavenly Realm—
in moments of glorious freedom!

800px-Dülmen,_Wildpark_--_2015_--_8871-7


The earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are the realists
of the zodiac. They represent practical matters and generally
take a concrete view of reality. Earth is about the material
world. It excels in measuring, planning and applying ideas in
ways meant to bring visible results. Earth is an element of
reliability, rather than imagination and risk. It is interested
in structures that endure, reputations built on performance
and pleasures of the body.
Jeff Jawer, greatly loved astrologer

INTO THE SILENCE

Daienin_Kannon
 

Into the Silence,
above thought, word to the Source.
Life’s true pictures seen.
 

Into the Silence,
we come face to face with God.
Peace is all there is.
 

Into the Silence,
harmonious Universe.
Earth is Heaven formed.

Silence is who we are.

INCLUSIVE UNITY

800px--conservationlands15_Social_Media_Takeover,_July_15th,_Wild_and_Scenic_Rivers_(19268678633)

It is all the One Life, One Landscape.
Notice, really stop yourself to pay attention to
a child, a cat, dog,
the dove pair in your garden,
the dew-dropped face of a flower,
the misty rain falling that feeds soil and vegetation,
the distinct rays of sunlight bursting
through patchy clouds,
the stars guarding the heavens,
the waxing Moon,
the birth of a new day—
all originating from the one Source,
one unending Circle.
Infinite expressions yet no underlying difference.
A Divine Self resides throughout
the entirety of Creation.

800px-Ocean_surface_wave

The individual wave takes form as it rises and crests,
yet with no beginning or end apart from the water,
then dissipates its energy into
the whole body of the ocean.

No thing exists in isolation or out of
relationship to the totality.
Accidents, randomness, and chaos are impossibilities.
The key to life is conscious awareness of the
one animating Light that governs precisely, perpetually—
behind the conditioned, false
appearance of external reality.
There is but one, pure, perfected, Spiritual Life.

From time to time, throughout time,
an individual with opened eyes
sees through the illusion that veils the inner Life.
Very few sainted ones of Self-Mastery have
walked the lands of earth.
These holy presences forever utter the same
revelation that life co-exists as One grand creative
panorama across all dimensions.
Harmonious Unity is all that exists.
It has always been present—now, eternal,
immortal, infinite, magnificent Life.

636px-Circle_of_Life_from_Ivana_Houserova

Notice, really stop yourself to notice,
with your mind serene,
your heart receptive,
your eyes gazing inward,
and behold the glorious Reality of Life…
 


The vision through which we see is the vision
that is given back to us…. Everything in this universe
is translated into its true worth by our inner awareness.
Joel S. Goldsmith, spiritual Master

EACH A DIVINE CHAPTER

800px-Marcos_Villodas,_Pohja_Nana;_open_book_Wellcome_L0021261

In your Book of Life
each chapter a milestone
for growth, greater sight.

Or not….

There are knee scrapers.
Sadness ‘til your heart will break.
Sickness that stops you.

These test…

Good fortune appears.
Excelling with light-speed ease.
You reach for your star.

Joyful….

The ups and the downs.
Detours, wrecks, smooth road ahead.
Take it all in stride.

Say yes….

Your life out-pictures
how you live on the inside.
With Light or dullness.

It shows….

Horizons summon.
The Higher step is a choice.
Write your next chapter.

Light guides….

800px-AnrakujiWP

 


The things to do are: the things that need doing,
that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems
to see need to be done. Then you will conceive your own
way of doing that which needs to be done — that no one else
has told you to do or how to do it. This will bring out the
real you that often gets buried inside a character that has
acquired a superficial array of behaviors induced or imposed
by others on the individual.
Buckminster Fuller, author of Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth
