I Lift Up My Cup of Acceptance

We lift up our cup of acceptance to the Divine Bounty when we think affirmatively and give thanks to the giver of all life. Daily we should practice affirming that our cup is filled and running over, always remembering that what we affirm for ourselves we must affirm for others. Living and letting live, giving and receiving, loving and being loved, our cup of acceptance will be filled from the horn of God’s Abundance.

I am living in the continual expectancy that every good thing in my experience shall be multiplied. There is neither doubt nor uncertainty in my mind. Every detail is transformed into an affirmation, every negation into an acceptance, every no into a yes. I know that the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life. I have complete confidence in this Spirit. I know that I am beloved and needed. I feel at home with God.

Today is filled with blessing for myself and others. The past is gone and I gladly loose it and let it go. The present is filled with peace and joy and the future with hope. Gratefully I accept of the Divine Love and Givingness and gladly extend them to everyone I meet. I am made whole with the Wholeness of the Spirit. Gently, but with complete certainty, I am guided into right action and successful accomplishment of all good desires. This I accept. This I experience.

Spiritual Essays #2

The Eight Fundamental Truths of Existence

1. All knowing is a rediscovery

All knowing is a kind of discovery. It is becoming aware of what is already present in the universe. Our knowing does not create it. We simply become aware of what is already present, which may happen through effort or by chance. It is the same as in a journey where you may not yet know the destination, and you may not have yet reached it, but it has always been there whether you reach there or not.

2. All creation is a mere repetition

All creation is a mere repetition, reproduction or imitation of what already exists or what can possibly exist within the framework of the universe. There is nothing that you can create anew, which is not already present in the universe in some state. Just because you chanced upon it, created it or invented it does not mean that it was not existing before. You cannot think, conceive, create, change or manipulate anything which is not already present in the universe in some form as reality, a potentiality or possibility.

3. All knowledge is self-existing

Knowledge does not arise because of the mind or the senses. Knowledge exists independent of the mind. The mind may know it, not know it or know it imprecisely. That knowing does not alter the universal reality. It is the same with the world. The world did not come into existence when you were born or opened your eyes. It was there before and it will also be there after you are gone.

4. Free will is an illusion

Just because you have the freedom to make decisions and choices, it does not mean that you have a free will. Your free will arises from your mind which in turn is bound to the laws of Nature. Even the choices which are available to you are preexisting. Then, where is the true freedom to think or choose beyond those limitations, without the constraints imposed upon you?

5. Infinity is just a number

Infinity is just a number or a condition which we cannot count, measure or ascertain its beginning or end in our present circumstances. It is infinity for us due to the limitations in our scientific advancement, but not necessarily for the universe or some other intelligence which is superior to ours. Perhaps someday we will find the limits of infinity, just as we can measure the distance between the earth and the sun today, which was inconceivable a few centuries ago.

6. The universe represents order in chaos

Life can be driven neither by chaos nor by a rigid framework of rules and constraints. The universe offers the finest example of balance between the two. It is a fluidly stable system, built in a fluidly unstable environment whereby it can effectively and efficiently harness the power of order as well as chaos. We are afraid of chaos and uncertainty. However, just as the universe, we can keep our minds open and flexible to take advantage of the possibilities and opportunities life offers to us.

7. Knowledge is known through intelligence

Knowledge is known or put to use by intelligence. In us, the mind (manas) and the body constitute the repository of knowledge. We use it with the help of intelligence (buddhi). Hence, the wise ones say that intelligence is superior to knowledge. Just as our bodies, the universe also possesses supreme intelligence with which it puts to use all this knowledge and gives shape to things. Its presence is evident in the intelligent order, structure and function of the universe. The Upanishads validate it saying that God or Brahman is pure intelligence (prajnanam brahma).

8. Suffering is inevitable and unavoidable

Knowledge without intelligence represents the state of ignorance and delusion. Not being able to discern right knowledge, causes, solutions, methods and approaches or the right way to deal with problems and situations, this is the state of ignorance which according to many philosophers and enlightened masters leads to suffering. Ignorance can never fully be resolved with our limited faculties. Therefore, our suffering can never fully be resolved. However, we can purify and brighten our intelligence to cultivate right awareness and discernment (prajna).

Rosicrucian reflections #39

“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 #40

Meditation

As the wave of summer’s glory

Reaches crest

And then flows on,

I gain perspective

On my doing-nature.

A half-turn of the wheel ago

Saw me emerging from winter,

With visions, plans, and dreams.

Where have the visions led me,

What plans have been realized?

What of my life? I ask.

What of today?

The Blessing

In this season of outer work,

My twofold task is clear.

My work is learning

And also teaching,

For I have much to share.

No false humility

Will block the rhythm of this cycle,

This flow of wisdom To me, through me.

The inbreath-outbreath finds me

Now learning, now teaching;

The cycle is complete.

Daily Meditation #37

Love Goes Out

The love of the All Good is within me and through me. That love goes out to meet all who come into my atmosphere. It radiates to all and flows through all. The love within me is divine love. The love within me is perfect.

“If a radical political alternative is not opened up… Then I think we are essentially going to amuse and entertain ourselves into extinction! Business as usual at this point is a death sentence on the human race.”

Author Kelly’s Book Blog Monday

Author Kelly’s Book Blog Monday

I’m excited to announce the release of my new book entitled ‘Everwhere: Litterbox’. A rollicking humorous romp through the alternate reality that is Everwhere.

This does have a little to do with the theme of my blog as I weave how we can use love and intention to manifest a better world for ourselves and indeed, for all beings, into the story line.

Trey Carpenter, the main protagonist of the story, is catapulted into and alternate universe where he must stop the evil influences of that world from starting an all out war. Deni, the love of Treys life and an almost perfect soul is in trouble back in the real world. Trey cannot return to help her until he completes the job that was thrust upon him by the forces of love.

In this trilogy I cover manifestation, using the power of love. I go deeper into spiritual teachings in each successive book, so it’s a good way to learn about spirituality while enjoying a funny tale.

If you enjoy this genre of book, or want to try it for the first time, then please check out the book on Amazon.

Here’s a link to the Kindle version and the paperback.

If you enjoy the book, please be sure to leave a review on Amazon or your Kindle reading device.

May God bless and protect you.

Science of Mind #14

The Spirit In Me is Perfect

Each of us is a spirit, but we don’t always recognize this greatest of all truths about ourselves. We don’t always consciously invite communion with the spirit or open all the doorways of our thought in complete acceptance. The Bible tells us to let that mind be in us that was in Jesus, which, of course, is the Mind of God and the invisible Guest in every person.

I know that this invisible Guest within me, the Angel of God’s Presence, is counseling me wisely, leading me unerringly, directing my thoughts and actions in harmony, in peace, in poise, in love, and in cooperation. And because God cannot fail, and because the Divine Presence within me is God as my real self, I know that there is Power flowing through my word of faith, which makes straight the way before me. I know that the great Giver of life is giving, through me, that gift which is gladly made, which returns multiplied and goes out again to increase its blessing and to multiply its own good as it blesses others.

I know there is a Presence that came with me when I entered this life, and I know that this same Presence will go with me when I leave this physical form, for It is the Presence of Eternal Life, the Life that cannot die. And so I have no fear of the past, the present, or the future, but I am living today as though God really were over all and through all. I feel this Presence as life, love, and goodness, and experience Its action as power and certainty. It is with me today, making my life whole and complete.

Spiritual Essays #1

Today we think about spiritualism in moderate terms. We aim to live holistically, trying to satisfy both our spiritual and material needs, accepting what is being given to us by Nature or God, and without subjecting ourselves to the extremities of pain and pleasure. This is more or less a compromise of sorts, what some people prefer to call as spiritual materialism, which does not guarantee liberation but gives you an ability to withstand the pressures of life with greater understanding and patience. In today’s world, you may consider yourself a spiritual person, if you go beyond the immediate needs and concerns of your mind and body and search for answers about your existence and your relationship with the world around you. You are spiritual, if you lead a contemplative life, without abandoning your social and family responsibilities. You are spiritual, if you believe that you are a spiritual entity and identify yourself primarily with your inner soul or self, instead of your mind and body.

Rosicrucian Reflections #38

“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 #39

Meditation

This day brings to me

The gift of glorious sun,

Of warmth

And light

And growth.

How mindlessly I go about the day,

Protected from this nourishment,

Unconscious of this joyful gift!

Surely I will find time

This day

To take the sun to me,

And surely will I find a way

To shine my light

With love.

The Blessing

The warmth of this day has filled me,

And how natural it is

To allow this warmth to radiate

Back into the world.

I smile at you,

And you are no stranger

To my heart.

I gaze at my own reflection

In the eyes of the other,

And there is no other,

Only our shared divinity.

The boundaries disappear.
