Rosicrucian Reflections #22

 

 
“The mystic does everything they can to cultivate and maintain four primary virtues, and thus warrant being called a mystic: understanding, service, compassion, and love. These virtues all flow into one another, and end up merging into a perfect unity and forming one entity, thus moving us closer to the “Rose-Croix” state. But the road is long, and the ascent an arduous one, with its tests like so many stones on the path. Willpower, perseverance, and trust are three further virtues that need to be manifested, if we wish to achieve our spiritual elevation. We can do this together under the aegis of the sacred symbol of the Rose-Cross, and thanks to all the experiences – pleasant and unpleasant – that we have already lived through, and will continue to live through. This choice is ours, for we have our free will.”

Meditation

What is the source

From whence gushes the frenzied growth

All about me?

What overlighting presence

Guides the living things of earth

Toward the zenith of their life?

I, as one of these living things,

Marvel at the perfection

Of our unfolding.

Blessed am I

To be part of the plan.

 

The Blessing

My heart tells me

That the time of compromise

Has passed.

Now, the work I do

Must nourish me

And heal the earth

And free our common spirit.

I Keep The Promise

I keep the promise that I have made to myself. Never again will I tell myself that I am poor, sick, weak, or unhappy. I do not lie to myself anymore, but daily speak the truth to my inner soul, telling it that it is wonderful and marvelous; that it is one with the great cause of all life, truth, power and action. I whisper these things into my soul and it breaks forth into songs of joy with the realization of its limitless possibilities. I assure my soul.

I Use My Mind Aright

The indwelling Spirit is the real source of my mind. Within me God has placed his priceless gift of thought. When I think, God thinks, for God thinks by means of me. I am the divine Consciousness in action. My thinking is based on the good, the eternal and the true. I contemplate God’s Ideas. They are the substance of my soul and the source from which I draw. His heaven is my present environment, and His Love impels me to think rightly of myself and my fellow man. I let go of all that is untrue of God, and all false conditions eliminate themselves from my experience. God’s thought of me as His perfect expression is now my own thought of myself. I am good enough for God, so I am good enough to live with in peace and joy. My real self is divine. My mind is now established in this truth, and I use my thought to produce what I want.

Selections From The World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #11 – Hinduism

 

 

One Single Life

Then shall be ended here the Law of Pain.

Earth shall be made a home of Heaven’s light…

The superconscient beam shall touch men’s eyes

And the truth-conscious world come down to earth

Invading matter with the Spirits ray,

Awakening its silence to immortal thoughts,

Awakening the dumb heart to the living Word.

This mortal life shall house Eternities bliss,

The body’s self taste immortality.

 

O mind, grow full of eternal peace:

O word, cry out the immortal litany:

Built is the golden tower, the flame-child born.

 

The supermind shall claim the world for Light

And thrill with love of God the enamored heart

And place Light’s crown on Nature’s lifted head

And found Light’s reign on her unshaking base…

A soul shall wake in the Inconscient’s house;

The mind shall be God-vision’s tabernacle,

The body intuitions instrument,

And life a channel for God’s visible power…

 

 

The Spirit’s tops and Nature’s base shall draw

Near to the secret of their separate truth

And know each other as one deity.

The Spirit shall look out through Matter’s gaze

And Matter shall reveal the Spirit’s face.

Then man and superman shall be at one

And all the earth become a single life.

-Aurobindo, from Savitri

Rosicrucian Reflections # 21

 

 

“Never forget that every time we move onward, the whole of Humanity does so with us. Let us walk on into the life that is real, the one that is not limited to our own, nor to the time that we have in this incarnation; let us walk on into that infinite space where everything becomes possible. In the life that is “real,” we have unlimited access to a great universal power. Once we become aware of what this “real” life is, we are holding the key that gives access to all the answers we are looking for, as well as to happiness.”            -Rosicrucian manuscript

Meditation

Mother, in this season of the flowers

I bow to you in humble awe

The brilliant colors of my blossoms

Are growing now,

Soon to be fruit.

I feel the need to give to you

For all that you have given me,

And though the moment is not yet right

One day my fruit will yield its seed

To your sweet earth

 

The Blessing

In the joyful outbreath

Of this season of my growth,

It is difficult to remember

The cycles of my life.

But remember I will,

For it is the rhythm of my living/dying

That gives the meaning to my journey,

And it is the surrender

Of yesterday’s fruit

That allows the new seed to grow

To flower.

Daily Meditation #19

 

 

Freedom From Over-Sensitivity

My feelings cannot be hurt. No one wishes to harm me, and there is nothing in me that can believe in any separation from the All Good. I perceive that I am free from all people, and I cannot be harmed or mistreated. I have such a sense of unity with all that the circle is complete and perfect. I love my friends and they love me, and that love is in and of God and cannot be marred or hindered. I am filled with joy and love, forever.

Divine Intelligence Leads Me And Emphasizes My Greatest Opportunity

I depend upon Divine Intelligence so completely that it guides me consciously and unconsciously. Its directing power sustains right action whether I am asleep or awake. Divine Intelligence brings out my greatest good, and I put my best effort into each endeavor. Divine Intelligence leads me to my greatest opportunity, but I do not overlook the importance of any step in its fulfillment. Whatever is part of the expression of my opportunity I handle adequately no matter how trivial it may appear. I do not overlook the slightest opportunity for betterment and improvement. I know that my awareness of limitless power provides all avenues necessary for the complete expression of my talents. I am ready for each opportunity; I do not have to wait for a psychological moment or some specified time to act. My self-acceptance provides the right opportunity and the right time. Therefore, I do not postpone this self-acceptance. I accept now the fullness of God Life as my complete experience.

Selections From the World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #10 Taoism

 

 

To Know the Tao

meditate

and still the mind.

Knowledge comes with perseverance.

 

The Way is neither full nor empty;

a modest and quiet nature understands this.

The empty vessel, the uncarved block;

nothing is more mysterious.

 

When enlightenment arrives

don’t talk too much about it;

just live it in your own way.

With humility and depth, rewards come naturally.

The fragrance of blossoms soon passes;

the ripeness of fruit is gone in a twinkling.

Our time in this world is so short,

better to avoid regret:

Miss no opportunity to savor the ineffable.

 

Like a golden beacon signaling on a moonless night,

Tao guides our passage through this transitory realm.

In moments of darkness and pain

remember all is cyclical.

Sit quietly behind your wooden door:

Spring will come again.

-Loy Ching Yuen
