Rosicrucian Reflections #33

 

 

“A young man came to a sage one day and asked, “Sire, what must I do to become wise?” The sage vouchsafed no answer. The youth after repeating his question a number of times, with a like result, at last left him, to return the next day with the same question. Again no answer was given and the youth returned on the third day, still repeat- ing his question, “Sire, what must I do to become wise?” Finally the’sage turned and went down to a near-by river. He entered the water, bidding the youth follow him. Upon arriving at a sufficient depth the sage took the young man by the shoulders and held him under the water, despite his struggles to free himself. At last, however, he released him and when the youth had regained his breath the sage questioned him: “Son, when you were under the water what did you most desire?” “The youth answered without hesitation, “Air, air! I wanted air!” “Would you not rather have had riches, pleasure, power or love, my son? Did you not think of any of these?” queried the sage. “No, sire! I wanted air and thought only of air,” came the instant response. “Then,” said the sage, “to become wise you must desire wisdom with as great intensity as you just now desired air. You must struggle for it, to the exclusion of every other aim in life. It must be your one and only aspiration, by day and by night. If you seek wisdom with that fervor, my son, you will surely beeome wise.”
― Max Heindel, The Rosicrucian cosmo-conception, or, Mystic Christianity : an elementary treatise upon man’s past evolution, present constitution and future development.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #34

 

 

Meditation

Sweet,

Is the breath of nature

In my life,

Fragrant

Is the warm wind off the meadow

Where I lie.

All this is given to me.

But in my striving

For the illusory acquisitions

Of the world,

Are these treasures lost to me?

Simple joy is mine

If I but slow my pace.

 

The Blessing

There on the lush rolling land

stands a stone,

Placed by human will

And pointed to the sky.

Its base is set to earth,

Its edges smoothed

By the years.

Much like that standing stone am I,

a channel

From the Father to the Mother,

A connector

Of the oceans of cosmic and earthly love.

This task I joyfully embrace.

Friendship of the Spirit and of Man

The friendship of the spirit and of man is mine now and forever. Even now I see the countless numbers of friends coming and going around me. I enter into this friendship and this companionship with gladness and rejoicing. I receive my friends.

My Thought is Inspired By the Most High

We should believe that God is the invisible Partner in our lives and affirm that Divine Love goes before us and prepares the way. We should permit ourselves to be guided for there is Something within us, deep at the center of our being, which knows what we ought to do and how we ought to do it.

I am listening to the Divine Presence and permitting It to direct my path. Thoughts and ideas will come to me and I shall be led to follow through on them in my everyday life. I shall be impelled into right action. I know how to meet every situation in calm trust and with the complete conviction that Divine Intelligence is guiding me. I wish to do only that which is constructive and life-giving; therefore, I know that everything I do will prosper. Everything I touch will be quickened into a newness of life and action. Every constructive purpose in my life will be fulfilled.

I have a deep sense of inner calm, a complete assurance that all is well. The same Intelligence that governs the planets in their course is now acting as a Law of Good in my personal experience and in the experience of everyone around me. I do thank God for this increase that is mine. I do accept Divine guidance. I do believe that I am in silent partnership with all the Power, all the Presence, and all the Love there is. I place my life entirely and completely under the protection and guidance of this Power, and I rest in complete assurance that everything I do will prosper.

Words to Live By #15

 

 

Peace and Enlightenment

Let prosperity come,

let the soul and the body be nourished,

let the rulers reign justly over their land,

let peace and gentleness,

knowledge and Godliness always prevail,

let happiness and goodness be found

throughout the world,

let the rain arrive in time

and the earth give ample harvest,

let fairness and freedom replace fear,

let the generations continue to be fertile

and let poverty come to an end,

let every man and woman

live one hundred healthy years.

OM PEACE PEACE PEACE.

Rosicrucian Reflections #32

 

 

“As mystics throughout time have found, the road to discovery, to peace and enlightenment is a journey into Self. There is more to our conscious being than we realize and it is from within that we find the keys that unlock our inner wisdom. It is from within that we can connect with the source of knowledge that lies beyond the limits of our five senses.”

– Rosicrucian Manuscript

 

 

“Knowing others is wisdom. Knowing yourself is enlightenment.”

Essene Meditations and Blessings #33

 

 

Meditation

I live now

At the apex of the solar year,

Drenched in warmth

And outer power.

I bathe

In the cleansing water of the Mother,

Naked and unashamed.

I need no garment

To separate me

From the waters of the Spirit,

For my flesh and spirit are united,

And wholeness flows through me.

 

The Blessing

In this time of outward activity,

Of creation on the physical plane,

I ask to remember

That the wheel is ever-turning,

And I am propelled

Toward my inner nature

Even as I celebrate

My outer nature.

For in the fullness of light

Rest the seeds of night,

And in darkness

The seeds of day.

Beauty

I behold the beautiful and the pleasant. My eyes see only that which is beautiful to look upon. I will not see anything else or believe in anything else. I know that beauty has entered into my life, and will always remain there. I see only the beautiful.

Science of Mind #7

 

 

I experience the creativity of faith

Faith acts like a law, because it is a law. It is the law of mind in action. When we realize this we no longer feel that we must have faith in ourselves as isolated beings, but, rather, that as human beings we are included in the great Law of Life. Then we can rest in complete confidence that our words , spoken in this faith, are the presence and the power and the activity of the Spirit in us. All effort to make things happen or to concentrate the mind is put aside, and with quiet childlike acceptance we make known our requests with thanksgiving. We are One with God. Nothing can separate us from the Source.

Letting our faith be of God’s Presence and Power we can each say: All that I am, and all that I do, is the Divine Presence expressing Itself through me. The thoughts I think and the words I speak are Life and Truth because God speaks them through me. Of myself I give no authority to my prayer, but the child of God in me knows that the authority of the Almighty brings to pass the words that I speak.

I speak the word of health for my body, my feelings, and my thoughts, knowing that the Father within is the Power that brings this wholeness into complete being. I speak the word of Divine Guidance, and the Wisdom of  the universe wells up as a beacon to lead me into paths of right-use-ness, to make straight and clear my everyday paths. I speak the word of joy, and the Father within frees me from loneliness and sadness. I speak the word of peace to the world and know that the Peace of God reaches into the hearts and minds of the people of all nations.

Words to Wake Us Up #7

 

 

“One day I will be free of the ego.”

Who is talking?

The ego.

“To become free of the ego is not really a big job,

but a very small one.

All you need to do is be aware of your thoughts and emotions –

as they happen.

This is not really a ‘doing’, but a ‘seeing’.

In that sense it is true that there is nothing

you can do to become free of the ego.

When that shift happens,

which is the shift from thinking to awareness,

an intelligence far greater than the ego’s cleverness

begins to operate in your life.”

-Eckhart Tolle
