Remembering the Beloved

from Lalla to Nuruddin by Jaishree K. Odin

Heart is a fish: don’t leave it dry.

Irrigate it with the remembrance of God:

It will flourish then.

This self is a jewel: don’t lose it.

Lord is the Beloved:

He will thus be pleased.

     Through remembering God, the seeker focuses on the life-giving traits to illuminate the consciousness. The preoccupation with material reality is equivalent to associating with ignorance and darkness as true existence only belongs to God. Offering prayers regularly with sincerity opens up the heart, purifies the soul, and transforms one’s thoughts and actions. The negative thoughts are thus eliminated and the focus shifted to the positive thoughts. Only then do the seeds blossom into noble traits that manifest as compassion, love, caring, and selflessness, among others.

Rosicrucian Reflections #102

“The goal of the Rosicrucian student is to live mysticism and mysticism, by definition, is the practice of strengthening the bond that unites us with the God of our Heart. It is through this Cosmic Attunement, being of necessity harmonic and harmonious, that we can understand our origin, our nature, and the infinite powers that are conferred upon those who master it. You are therefore encouraged to expend every possible effort to live daily the harmonic rapport that unites you with the Divine so that, through conscious revelation and illumination, you become forever instruments of Cosmic Harmony and Universal Peace.”

-Christian Bernard

Essene Meditations and Blessings #102

Meditation

Slowly the balance shifts

From inner creativity

To outer manifestation.

Slowly my core of inner strength

Streams outward

Along my nervous system,

Bringing health and vitality

To the whole of my being.

The life in me prepares itself,

Strengthens itself

For the moment in the cycle

When it will overflow its bounds,

Surging towards a oneness

With all of life.

The Blessing

I evoke the forces of peace and harmony

and ask these forces

To prepare me as a channel

For the overlighting guidance.

My heart swells with thanksgiving

For a winter of inner preparation

Which will lead me to the first step

In becoming a channel for peace:

That of finding peace

Within my own being.

Weekly Meditation #101

Love Divine

Love divine within me, I am overpowered by your presence. I am speechless, for words cannot utter the things that you have revealed to me. Why do you love me so, and why clasp me so close to your eternal heart? Almighty presence, you have claimed me as your own. I will never again walk apart from you. The love of God is within me.

-Ernest Holmes

Nightly Spiritual Quote #27 Theosophical Society

“If a man approaches a fact in the world around him with a judgment arising from his previous experiences, he shuts himself off by this judgment from the quiet, complete effect which this fact can have on him. The learner must be able each moment to make himself a perfectly empty vessel into which the new world flows. Knowledge is received only in those moments in which every judgment, every criticism coming from ourselves, is silent. For example, when we meet a person, the question is not at all whether we are wiser than he. Even the most unreasoning child has something to reveal to the greatest sage. And if he approach the child with his prejudgment, be it ever so wise, he pushes his wisdom like a dulled glass in front of what the child ought to reveal to him.”
― Rudolph Steiner
