Words To Wake Us Up #2

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“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.”

-Bill Nye

Essene Meditations And Blessings #6

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

Meditation

Wherein lies the source of joy?

The inner peace of winter

Prepares me for the answer;

It shouts quietly to me,

“Do not seek happiness; seek rather

Your true nature,

Your true reason for being;

Seek your dharma.

Joy is the child of completeness,

Of living your dharma.”

At this time of new, small beginnings,

I feel the clarity of vision growing in me,

and I am pregnant with joy.

 

The Blessing

The silent stirring of the new life in me

Fills me with an inner strength.

The strength is good;

And it comes from a place

Deep inside my being

That has only been reached

In the depth of ego-death.

This power I trust;

This is the power

Of love and compassion

The world cries out for.

The veil of illusion

Lifts slowly and reveals.

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Daily Meditation #3

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

These daily meditations are excerpts from ‘Science Of mind’ by Ernest Holmes, published in 1926.

 

“These lessons are dedicated to that truth which frees man from himself and sets him on the pathway of a new experience, which enables him to see through the mist to the eternal and changeless reality.”

“Become quiet and composed. The body should be relaxed but the mentality should be active. Then, carefully read the meditation several times, phrase by phrase, endeavoring to realize the meaning of the words and trying to enter into the atmosphere of thought. After having done this, meditate upon the words, following the meditation until you feel a sense of realization.”

-Ernest Holmes

 

Majestic Calm

“The inner mind is still. The soul reflects the Most High. The spirit of man is divine source. In the great calm of the All Good, I rest in peace and security. My life is now reflecting the perfect whole. I am peace; I am calm. I am security and complete satisfaction. I am one with divine source. I am filled with peace.

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

“Today I turn each attempt into an accomplishment. I have “tried” long enough. My achievement is great because I refuse to compare myself with another. I “measure up” with God and forget human viewpoints. I re-investigate spirit every time I rediscover myself. There is a larger purpose to replace every tired condition in my life. I declare and know that each point of stagnation now vanishes as I start thinking in terms of solutions. I am not simply ready for life, or eager for life: I am living. I unlock every door that has ever housed fear or frustration. My only guests are confidence, expansion and demonstration. To have a larger life I am willing to be a finer person. As a changed environment follows changed reactions, I now release every “pet alibi” – stop all indulgence in self-pity and curb every unwholesome thought. All hesitation is ended. My mind is definite. I advance with success because I advance with faith.”

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
