Rosicrucian Reflections #14

 

 

“How should a mystic conduct oneself in everyday life? This question is both simple and complex. Being a mystic is to be aware of and shoulder one’s responsibilities in one’s family life, working life, and spiritual life. A thinking, active, responsible mystic does not feed on what is negative and unhealthy. A mystic does not make hasty judgements, and does not condemn without having tried to understand the why and the how of things and events. The mystics attitude is an open one, respecting everyone’s right to be different and to exercise freedom of expression. A mystic is able to give assistance, bring calm, and speak in a compassionate manner to whoever is in need. A mystic accepts philosophically – without becoming disenchanted – the tests that are experienced during one’s life: for a mystic is not exempt from lessons, we just find it a little bit easier to learn them.”

Rosicrucian Reflections #9

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

It is for ourselves that we forge a personal philosophy of life. It is within that we come to see, little by little, what must be changed within our own being. We must be aware of what is possible and what is not. We cannot change anyone else’s character, nor should we try to do so. Each person changes when a need for change is apparent to our own mind. When old ways don’t work anymore, something different must be tried, however reluctantly. A person begins to think more autonomously when the whim of society no longer brings pleasure. Everyone will reach this point at some time – in some incarnation.”

Words To Wake Us Up #2

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

“The truth is more complex than it seems and a good heart has more impact than anyone with a thousand words or actions.”

-Robin Sacredfire

 

“Researchers have proven, scientifically, that humans are all one people. The color of our ancestors’ skin and ultimately my skin and your skin is a consequence of ultraviolet light, of latitude and climate. Despite our recent sad conflicts here in the U.S. there really is no such thing as race. We are one species – each of us much, much more alike than different. We all come from Africa. We all are of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet, a Pale Blue Dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together.”

Spiritual Treatments #11

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

These treatments are from Ernest Holmes’ book ’34 Spiritual Treatments’. Use these treatments as prayer or affirmation. If used as prayer, feel the words as originating from your heart and going to the place inside you that God resides. If used as affirmation, pay close attention to the words and truly believe what you are reading. If you don’t believe in God, substitute the word God for anything you choose, and tweak the words to make them work for you.

 

“As I recognize that the Christ within me is the Christ within you it is as if to say: the Love, Life, Intelligence, Goodness and Peace of God within me, salutes the Love, Life, Intelligence, Goodness and Peace of God within you. I automatically dissolve in my consciousness and yours any thought of discord, any hint of the less than Good. In Christ we become brothers, branches on the same vine, partaking of the same Substance, one in the Spirit. Because I trust the Christ Self of every man, I trust life to bring me my highest good. Because I love the Christ  in every man, I love all men and that love returns to me enriched a thousandfold. As I unify with the Christ in every man I unify with all of Life and in that sense of Wholeness I find that I am whole and the thoughts with which I once contended have no power to disturb me. The Christ in me salutes the Christ in you and we are one. And so it is.”

Words To Live By #11 ‘After A while’

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

The poem ‘After A While’ by Veronica A. Shoffstall was first published in her college yearbook in 1971. Written about relationships from a woman’s perspective, I think we can all relate to this beautiful poem.

 

After A While

by Veronica A. Shoffstall

“After a while you learn the subtle difference

between holding a hand and chaining a soul

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning

and company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts

and presents aren’t promises

And you begin to accept your defeats

with your head up and your eyes ahead

with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child

and you learn to build all your roads on today

because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans

and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

 

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns

if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul

instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

 

And you learn that you really can endure

that you really are strong

and that you really do have worth

And you learn and you learn

with every goodbye you learn…”

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Words To Live By #10 ‘Dare To Be’

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

‘Dare To Be’ by American author Steve Maraboli teaches us that we don’t have to be at the mercy of our circumstances if we just have the audacity to dare.

 

“When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great, too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Essene Meditations And Blessings #4

 

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

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

And I contemplate

My dharmic path of service.

I give thanks for the Mother’s gifts

Which has brought me to this.
