A NEW SANTA CLAUS PARADIGM

 

There is no such thing
as giving or withholding,
goodness or badness.

In the inward life,
unworthiness is unknown.
Punishment is nil.

All children receive
unconditional care, love.
All needs are supplied.

No one seeks outside
of self for a single thing.
Not a lack exists.

Spiritually,
the divine Kingdom pervades.
Sharing is the norm.
 


 

The Old, Outworn Santa Clause Paradigm

“Santa Claus is said to make lists of children throughout
the world, categorizing them according to their behavior (“good”
and “bad,” or “naughty” and “nice”) and to deliver presents,
including toys and candy, to all of the well-behaved children in
the world and coal to all the misbehaved children on the single
night of Christmas Eve.”
1

 



Open your eyes and see the good that you now have,
and then keep alert and alive to recognize each new
manifestation as it comes to you. Speak with devotion
to the Father and thank Him for all the good things
of life. He is with you always.
Paramahansa Yogananda

“BP” IS BE PRESENT

What does “BP” mean?
A British Petroleum?
A baked potato?

“BP” for most means
a measure of blood pressure
of health or dis-ease.

Discerned by spirit,
“BP” is this ongoing,
ever present-ness.

Remove all the clocks.
Where is the past or future?
Now, this instant reigns.

Sow your bag of seeds
in the soil of aliveness.
“BP”—Be Present!
 


 

There is a simple practice by which a considerable
measure of peace—a quiet poise and an unruffled calm—
can be achieved, if persisted in day in and day out.
It is by developing a consciousness of nowness,
a state of todayness. This state of nowness is
achieved by consciously training ourselves to
live only in this minute. …Our responsibility is
only for this day and for this moment. Whatever
demand is made upon us, let us fulfill it this moment.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Practicing the Presence

 

That which a person continuously dwells upon,
that which he embraces in his consciousness,
is that with which he ultimately becomes one.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Practicing the Presence

SPIRITUAL EQUALITY

 
 

 

We are all born of
the one, universal Self.
All truly equal.

Yet each unique gift
adds its shining dimension
to the whole spectrum.

We don’t gain, attain
divine nature, mind, soul, life.
Simply realize it.
 
 


 

Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least [or greater]
of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
A master teaching by the Master Jesus, Matthew 25:40

HYACINTHS TO FEED YOUR SOUL

 

 

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft

two loaves alone are left.
Sell one, and with the dole
buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.

LEAVES AND TREE—ONE BODY

 

Leaves turning, falling.
Summer’s dryness takes its toll.
Nature’s transitions.

 

Leaf in its beauty
is the tree’s inward light shown.
Source in its wholeness.

 

Two life expressions.
An inner, outer body.
Inseparable.

 

Mystery of two.
An inner Self, outer self.
Indivisible.

CONSCIOUSLY, CONSTANTLY PRACTICE THE PRESENCE

 
 

The sages, seers, saints
teach the “practice” is within.
Spring of Life inborn.

Travel no distance.
Holy temple a breath near.
Sit, rest, close your eyes.

Quiet communion
awakens ancient Wisdom.
Sustenance absorbed.

Desire earnestly
to feel, hear, know God’s presence.
Joyous face to face.

Peace of heart assured.
Loving Parent by your side.
Link of trust certain.

Mystical life lived,
handed down by the Masters.
Graced path to Heaven.

 


 

The degree of spiritual consciousness, which we attain,
can be measured by the extent to which we relinquish
our dependence on the external world of form and place
our faith and confidence in something greater than ourselves,
in the Infinite Invisible, which can surmount any and every
obstacle. It is an awareness of the grace of God.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Practicing the Presence


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• The Lotus Pool

• Pray Ceaselessly

SPIRITUAL SMALLNESS

 

Definitions abound.
Small is tiny is teensy.
Small is miniscule and under-sized.
Small is even said to be lesser
in magnitude and extent.
But rise above such diminutive concepts
and itty-bitty appearances.
Let the limited, outward picture fool us not.
Small is anything but unimportant and insignificant!

 

Small is its own natural tune and vision.
Small is unassuming, the last in line.
Small is humility.
Small inflates not its own self.
Small can be a small quantity … perhaps.
Small in “size” is equal in every way.
Small is large of heart.
Small’s greatness is its continuous generosity.
Small is an interior beauty.
Small is a masterpiece in its own right.

 

Small is self-emptied of me, my, and mine.
Small desires not.
Small covets not.
Small can be quite unnoticed.
Small cultivates not numbers of admirers or applause.
Small shouts not from the rooftops for validation.
Small seeks the Light secretly, sacredly.

 

Small wants what is.
Small says, “Yes.”
Small resists not, opposes not.
Small is acceptance.
Small is this moment of presence.
Small is the ultimate freedom.

 

Small includes.
Small encircles.
Small expands into the Universe.
Small says, “I see you as me.
We are of identical Essence.”
Small, big all the same One.
Small embraces the True and Real.

 

Small is stillness and silence.
Small is surrendered receptivity.
Small can hear the ever-continuous, wee Voice.
Small is a state of divine Consciousness.
Small is much more than small.
Spiritually, small is vast and infinite!

 

Only a person who has passed through the gate
of humility can ascend to the heights of the spirit.
Rudolf Steiner

There is something in humility,
which strangely exalts the heart.
Saint Augustine

Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
Confucius

…Humility and meekness are indeed spiritual powers.
Swami Sivananda

SPIRITUAL QUIESCENCE

 

 

Energy ebbs, builds.
Rushing rivers burst their seams.
Downhill they fast plunge.

 

Waters of land merge
in awaiting ocean arms.
Two meet in the one.

 

Seamless power meets.
Currents collide in uplift.
Head-on surge settles.

 

Winds calm, surface stills.
A moment of perfect rest.
One quiet ensues.

 

 
 

My heart is tuned to the quietness that
the stillness of nature inspires.
Hazrat Inayat Khan, founder of the mystical
Sufi Order in the West in 1914

UNCOMMON SENSE

Human, divine spheres
radically different.
Two levels of sight.

One is visible,
the other invisible.
Take the leap and soar.

One is the finite.
The other is infinite.
Restless or restfilled.

One futures, regrets,
other is full of deep peace.
Tap the inward Source.

Physical senses
say appearance is concrete.
Life is by effort.

Senses of spirit
draw from hidden water, bread.
Intangible Grail.

Uncommon sense frees
us from fear, limits, lack, ills.
Outside props left, gone.

All shadows recede.
Behold real vistas—stunning!
Earth is Heaven seen.

 


Common sense is the message to fit in and look
like everyone else. Be the norm. Be practical.
Be rational and realistic.

Uncommon sense is the vision to walk
your own way, alone if need be, appearing
ouwardly as your unseen Self directs.
Awaken to infinite choice.


Other Spiritual Offerings:

• It’s All Your Choice

• Choose Your Fork Of The Path

• Casting Outward, Casting Inward

• Self-Creation

• Inner Climate

• In-Put And Out-Put

FILLED-FULL-MENT

I am filled fully
in measure to what I give.
Spirit tells us so.

Lighted Self I am
when little self is no more.
Spirit tells us so.

I am robed with love
the moment love enfolds you.
Spirit tells us so.

Of equal fineness,
we’re divine transparencies
in All filled-full-ment.

 


In this age, spiritual power and the nature of its
working have been discovered. As we continue to
learn more and more about spiritual power, we will
prepare ourselves to be worthy instruments for its flow—
not so much for your good or mine but that
the entire world may be embraced in divine Love.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Awakening Mystical Consciousness
