Words to Wake Us Up #6

 

 

“It is said that before entering the sea

a river trembles with fear.

 

She looks back at the path she has traveled,

from the peaks of the mountains,

the long winding road crossing forests and villages.

 

And in front of her,

she sees an ocean so vast,

that to enter

there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.

 

But there is no other way.

The river can not go back.

 

Nobody can go back.

To go back is impossible in existence.

 

The river needs to take the risk

of entering the ocean,

because only then will fear disappear,

because that’s where the river will know

it’s not about disappearing into the ocean,

but of becoming the ocean.”

-Khalil Gibran

Rosicrucian Reflections #30

 

 

“First of all, we must be in harmony with ourselves; we must come to accept ourselves. The best way to achieve this is to never compare ourselves with others, because the moment we do, we then judge ourselves inferior or esteem ourselves as superior, resulting in either an inferiority complex or an inflated ego. In both cases the result is a state of disharmony. To avoid this, it is best to begin with the principle that each of us is a unique being and that this uniqueness gives us our worth in God’s view, as well as in the eyes of humanity. Therefore, we should hold to our own standard, comparing ourselves only to ourselves—this being the key to our spiritual evolution.”

Essene Meditations and Blessings #31

 

 

Meditation

It is my natural state

To be filled with joy,

A joy that knows from whence I came

And who I truly am.

My moods may swing from up and down

But behind this flows

My joy in life.

Depressed emotions draw to me

Only more of the same.

I leave low vibrations behind

As I dance in the warm sun

Of this day.

 

The Blessing

As the tree shares its gift of fruit,

So I, too share the gifts of me.

For in me

Is the facilitator

Of a more loving world;

In me is the catalyst

For a greater social awareness.

In me is the power of the Word,

And I share that gift with all.

Daily Meditation #28

 

 

The Time is Now

The time has come, the hour has struck. The power from within has come forth and is expressing through my word. I do not have to wait; today is the time. Today I enter into all truth; today I am completely saved and healed and made happy. Today I enter into my inheritance. Today the truth has made me free.

-Ernest Holmes

 

 

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual.”

Science of Mind #5

 

I Am at Home in the Universe

This meditation may be considered an all-inclusive prayer because it includes ourselves and others. It is truly doing unto others that which we would like them to do unto us, and it establishes a unity between ourselves and those around us, a feeling that we all are some part of the kingdom of Good. This all-inclusive prayer, then, is one that expands our consciousness of the true self and at the same time blesses all others.

Believing that there is a Divine Presence closer to me than my very breath, that I live in perfect Spirit, that the Good around and the God within me is one God, I say: My Father, which art in heaven within me, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, now, and I accept it. And, looking about me, I say to all people: Your Father, which is in your heaven within you, hallowed be His name, for you are One with Him forevermore. There is One Life, that Life is God, that Life is Perfect, that Life is your life now.

Looking upon the circumstances that surround me, I bless them, even as Jesus blessed the bread and broke it. Even as the loaves and fishes multiplied in the outstretched and upturned hand of his love, so I know that everything in my experience that is good is multiplied and increased. Even as I feel the increase pressing into my own experience, I give it out that I may feed and bless and multiply the good of others, who are some part of me because God is in them and in me, and we are in each other.

Selections From The World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #18 Taoism

 

 

Carrying Vitality and Consciousness

Carrying vitality and consciousness,

embracing them as one,

can you keep them from parting?

Concentrating energy,

making it supple,

can you be like an infant?

Purifying hidden perception,

can you make it flawless?

Loving the people, governing the nation,

can you be uncontrived?

As the gate of heaven opens and closes,

can you be impassive?

As understanding reaches everywhere,

can you be innocent?

Producing and developing,

producing without possessing,

doing without presuming,

growing without domineering:

this is called mysterious power.

Rosicrucian Reflections #29

 

 

“The mystic uses their intuition a great deal, and endeavors to see into the future and to look beyond appearances. She or he reads others’ souls and hearts. A mystic does everything they can to rise up above suffering and despair; they go past the clouds and so glimpse the Sun; being both on their own and connected to the great All, they never forget that to accomplish great things we must be able to do small ones perfectly. The mystic knows that duty well carried out is an act of love and of service; and that for the service to have its full meaning, it must be selfless. It must be a gift of oneself to others, joyously agreed to, and not undergone as a great sacrifice. Love and giving should not be likened to suffering and renunciation, quite the reverse: were this the case, it would no longer be a question of love, but of masochistic behavior. True service only gives rise to good feelings, and expects nothing in return.”

Essene Meditations and Blessings #30

 

 

Meditation

There is a wholeness of my being

That I have come to know.

My life is the sum

Of my body, mind, and spirit

And more.

For I am immersed in a cosmic ocean of Life

Which connects my life with All,

and I am All.

 

The Blessing

Awareness

Of the richness of my life

Draws forth in me a yearning

To share my gifts with all,

And the greatest of these is Peace.

To work actively for peace

Within my life

And to bring that peace

To those I know

Is to make real

My spirituality.

Daily Meditation #27

 

 

“There is a knowing in this universe that opens flowers in their time, that gives me strength to grow. The wisdom of this primal force is always mine to tap, for I am one with all, and all is mine to know.”

-Danaan Parry

 

There are no cares or burdens

The spirit has no responsibilities. Its work is already accomplished and its purposes are already fulfilled. The spirit knows no want or fear. It is complete within itself and lives by virtue of its own being. I am spirit and so cannot take on the fears of the world. My work is accomplished and my ways are made straight before me. The pathway of life is an endless road of eternal satisfaction and perfect joy. My life within me is complete and perfect, and has no cares or burdens. It is free spirit and cannot be bound. I rejoice in that freedom. I rejoice in freedom.
