Rosicrucian Reflections #59 “True humility is not a sign of passivity. It is not a submission to the forces that oppose the essential needs of life, of self. Neither is humility an indication of personal weakness. The humble person realizes that there is no singleness to life. We are not isolated beings any more than a healthy cell is in a multicellular organism. Intelligent restraint so evident in humbleness is recognition of that Greater Self that must be served. This Greater Self is not an abstract, esoteric concept, or, a mere ideal. If humanity is a living social organism, then each human is a cell in that organism, the Greater Self. Aggression exercised solely for the needs of the Individual Self is a malignancy that can destroy the totality upon which all humanity depends. No aggression can advance us so far personally that we no longer need that sympathy and compassion which humility engenders.”

Essene Meditations And Blessings #61

Meditation

And now the life-force in me,

as in all beings,

Cries out to know itself

Apart from the Mother.

My life,

The uniqueness of that which I am,

Calls to me to experience,

For it is only in the full freedom

Of my own experiencing

That I gain the wisdom of my connectedness

With all that is.

For I am the one

And I am also the many.

The Blessing

As I experience the new life in me

Bursting its bounds,

I ask to be made more clearly aware

Of my part in the plan,

That I may prepare myself

To become the fullest expression and channel

For peace.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #58

Meditation

There is a force in me,

Pushing, pushing,

Beginning its outbreath

After a long sleep.

Sacred darkness slowly yields

To newborn light.

As I move outward

From the stillpoint of outer death

To share my new-found breath of life

With all,

I shall never forgert

The inbreath of the Mother

That nurtured me

Through the winter’s night.

The Blessing

I ask that the Light,

The Creative Force of the universe,

Breath the cleansing outbreath of spirit

Into my heart and my deeds.

I rejoice in this time of promise,

Of new stirrings

Of the rebirth of the lotus

Which will one day

Open fully to God.

Weekly Meditation #55

The Shining Path

The pathway of life shines before me into the perfect day. I walk the pathway of the soul to the gate of good. I enter into the fulfillment of my desires. Nothing need be added and nothing can be taken from the All Good which is forever expressing itself in me. Daily I receive its great blessings and my soul rejoices forevermore. I am now entered into my good.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #57

Meditation

As the clear winter water

Nourishes the seed within the earth,

So the water of my new-found awareness

Of who I truly am.

This awareness

Has not yet fully matured,

And I rest content

In the arms of the unfolding universe,

Which will reveal all wisdom

In its time.

The Power of the unmanifest

Even now works within my spiritual heart,

And I am at peace.

The Blessing

Deeper in me than my beliefs

Lives the place

Of my Natural Knowing.

I will use this winter’s stillness

To strip away beliefs

That hide the still-small-voice

Of my inner knowing.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #56

Meditation

The promise, the prophecy, is within me.

That which I have waited for is now present.

No longer need I fear.

Within me shines

The first glimmering of the Light,

And I am filled with the awareness

That the fulfilling of the prophesy

Is not a thing apart from me;

It is me.

As the first small rays of the sun

Return to my world,

I, too, return slowly to the world of form.

I humbly accept the mantle of that which I AM.

As I merge my light

With the light of all the beings of Light,

I surrender to my own divinity.

The Blessing

Life, you are a profound expression of Love.

The gentle, quiet expansion

Of the winter-mother’s love

Fills me with inner joy.

I bow before the purity of this love

Which nourishes without attachment.

Pagan Prayer #6

Morning

Today is a day to focus on positivity. Positive energy attracts positive energy and repels negative energy. I can bring more positive things into my life by letting go of negative thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes about myself and others. I especially need to let go of negative thoughts and feelings about myself. I don’t have to force anything – I just need to let them go.

Evening

I know that I did my best today to focus on being positive in thought, word, and action. I can rest tonight knowing that good things can come into my life because I have the power to make them manifest.

Pagan Prayer #5

Morning

Today is a day to focus on abundance – the abundance I already have in my life and the abundance I wish to create. As I look at the abundance of life on this earth, I know that I am at the center of a creative, evolving universe that will always provide abundantly. I immerse myself in the productive, fertile process of abundance in all of its aspects.

Evening

I know that I did my best today to focus on abundance. I can rest tonight knowing that I am part of an abundant universe, and I cannot help but be a part of it.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #54

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 toward 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 their 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.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #53

Meditation

From the calm place

At my spiritual center

I have touched the wisdom

Of the earth in winter.

Regeneration streams

From the holy earth to me,

And I am full.

I now gather to me the lessons

Which will empower me

To channel this life-giving earth force

For the good of all beings.

The Blessing

The winter’s journey

To the source of inner creativity

Now turns and guides me slowly

Toward outward manifestation.

Depth will be fullfilled

In expansion

As I contemplate

My dharmic path of service.

I give thanks for the Mother’s gifts

Which have brought me to this.
