Rosicrucian Reflections #3

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

“Let your imagination have full sway. Build it up until it is filled daily and hourly with the pictures that the lessons of the past and the trials of today suggest to your consciousness. Then analyze these imaginary things, select the best and take them into the laboratory of your creative powers. Let the Devine consciousness flowing through you reconstruct them, radiate them, and bring them to pass in your life and in the lives of those around you, thus adding to the world the assets of the future and the beautiful things of human evolution.”

– H. Spencer Lewis

Meditation

Each life upon this earthly plane

Knows beginning and knows ending.

Each turn of the yearly wheel as well

Brings birth and death.

Each breath I take reminds me, too,

That I must die each moment

So as to bring a blessed newness

To the next breath that I take.

For if each outbreath ends in death,

Each inbreath sees me born anew,

And present to that moment.

 

The Blessing

Throughout the flow of passing seasons,

You have shared your Light with me.

No middle-person have I required

to walk the path with you.

For in my heart

You dwell forever,

Not in some mansion high,

And the blessings that you give to me

Come from deep inside.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Spiritual Treatments #8

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

“Your vibe attracts you tribe”

 

Use these treatments as prayer or affirmation. If used as prayer, feel the words as originating from your heart and going to the place inside you that God resides. If used as affirmation, pay close attention to the words and truly believe what you are reading. If you don’t believe in God, substitute the word God for anything you choose, and tweak the words to make them work for you. These treatments are from Ernest Holmes’ book ’34 spiritual Treatments.’

 

“God is my courage! God is my strength! God is the inner confidence and conviction of my being and life. I have nothing to fear. God governs thoroughly, absolutely and completely, every detail and situation that presents itself to me. There is nothing to doubt, no confusion to confuse, and no block to block. The Mighty Spirit of Truth dissolves all excuses of resistance or rejection. A Supreme Intelligence guards and guides my life always. Devine Intelligence in me assures me that evil, error, falsity, of whatever name or nature, has no power, principle, process or procedure. The Universal Mind has decreed that I shall have courage, dominion and strength,  — and it can never be taken away. In this courage and dominion I live and have my being forever. For the Lord my God is with me whithersoever I go. This I know right down to the foundations of my being. Steadfast in Thee, O courage of God, I rise in Thy strength, and all is well.”

 

May God bless and protect you and…

Words To Live By #7 ‘If’ For Girls

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“Your vibe attracts your tribe”

 

I posted the poem ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling on October 15, 2019. I think it is a wonderful poem. Written for his son in 1895, it offers great advice that can be used by anyone.

I came across ‘If For Girls’, a complimentary poem for Kipling’s ‘If’, by American writer J. P. McEvoy. This is a wonderful addition to this series of blogs, especially in todays world where women are becoming more empowered than ever; and it’s about time! Women and men can use this advice, so let’s celebrate the Divine Feminine.

Dedicated to my mother Sylvia Patricia, and my love, Erin.

 

“If you can hear the whispering about you

And never yield to deal in whispers, too;

If you can bravely smile when loved ones doubt you

And never doubt, in turn, what loved ones do;

If you can keep a sweet and gentle spirit

In spite of fame or fortune, rank or place,

And though you win your goal or only near it,

Can win with poise or lose with equal grace;

 

If you can meet with Unbelief, believing,

And hallow in your heart, a simple creed,

If you can meet Deception, undeceiving,

And learn to look to God for all you need;

If you can be what girls should be to mothers:

Chums in joy and comrades in distress,

And be unto others as you’d have the others

Be unto you — no more, and yet no less;

 

If you can keep within your heart the power

To say that firm, unconquerable “No,”

If you can brave a present shadowed hour

Rather than to build a future woe;

If you can love, yet not let loving master,

But keep yourself within you own self’s clasp,

And not let dreaming lead you to disaster

Nor Pity’s fascination loose you grasp;

 

If you can lock your heart on confidences

Nor ever needlessly in turn confide;

If you can put behind you all pretenses

Of mock humility or foolish pride;

If you can keep the simple, homely virtue

Of walking right with God — then have no fear

That anything in all the world can hurt you —

And — which is more — you’ll be a Woman dear.”

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

Essene Meditations And Blessings #1

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find.”

 

“Your vibe attracts your tribe.”

 

These Meditations and Blessings found in the book ‘Essene Book of Meditations and Blessings’, by Danaan Parry, were inspired by the Essenes. The Essenes were peaceful people living in spiritual communities in the Middle East over 2,000 years ago. They lived in harmony with the Earth and seasonal cycles and developed physical communions for each day of the week.

The discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947, in a series of caves near the Dead Sea, brought to new light the wisdom-teachings of the Essene communities that existed in the deserts of the Middle East.

These spiritual communities were dedicated to preserving the ancient teachings and to  preparing the way for the new age of Pisces, when Christ energy would flood the world. They lived in simple harmony with all of nature, following the spiritual wisdom of their inner voices, which the Buddhists call “living one’s dharma.”

Their spiritual practices allowed them to absorb and channel the vibrations and healing powers of the plants, the sun, and the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water, for their own nourishment and for the healing of the earth itself. We have much to learn from these simple folk.

-Essene Book of Meditations and Blessings

 

I’d like to share these Meditations and Blessings in a new weekly series to be posted every Wednesday. I hope you enjoy and take them to heart.

 

Meditation

As I enter the sacred temple

of inner knowing,

I purify my being

to prepare myself for the initiation

that I have longed to find.

I cleanse my mind and heart

as I strip away

whatever stands between

my Spirit and the source of All.

I make myself ready.

And I wait.

And it will come to me.

 

The Blessing

Ancient is the one in me

that the spirit of this season,

with its quite murmur,

calls.

Beyond, beneath the outer me,

my wise old seer

looks out upon the dance with compassion,

with a smile. And the ancient one waits

for the young one to knock upon the door.

And both of them

are me.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

“Your vibe attracts your tribe.”

 

“We can work, study, laugh and have fun, dance, sing, and enjoy many different experiences. These are a wonderful part of life, but they are not central to why we are here. The opportunity to choose good over evil is precisely why we are here. Not one of us would say “I want to choose evil.” We all want to choose the right. However, the choice of good over evil is not always easy, because evil frequently lurks behind smiling eyes.”

-Neil L. Andersen, Elder Mormon

 

“It is a metaphysical fact that for each minute of time we spend in thoughts of unfavorable impressions, unkind criticism, or hate toward any person, there will be hours of physical and mental suffering as a reaction. The first thing to do then, in considering the relief of any mental or physical condition is to analyze your mental self over a period of time preceding the condition and discover what thoughts , attitudes, and conditions of mind you have held or expressed, and immediately eliminate this attitude by reversing you opinions and thoughts, and holding thoughts of love and kindness instead. In other words, the poison from the mind that has been eating at the very heart of every cell in your body must be eliminated before any treatment can be given to relieve the ultimate and outer manifestations. Any other process is merely treating the outer manifestations as though giving them a drug to nullify the senses without removing the actual cause.”
