I Form A New Concept Of God

The Power of Life within you is a spiritual power, able to bring to you permanent peace, increasing happiness and joy, and greater material abundance. These things that have made man miserable can be eliminated through the conscious use of this Power. God could not visit fear or hate or impoverishment upon us, because God transcends these things. The world needs a new concept of God; a new idea must be born in the minds of people everywhere about the nature of God and their relationship to this Divine Creative Spirit.

The only thing that can bring love, joy, peace, and prosperity to the world is a direct experience of the Invisible. We must sense the immediate presence of Life. With simplicity and directness, we must sense that the Spirit is at the center of our own lives. We must learn to recognize that It is at the center of all people and working in human affairs. While it is true that the Power of God is always within us, it is not true that we have always realized Its presence . To realize this is to be able to make conscious use of it, to direct It, for ourselves and for others.

I rely on my Inner Power to work with me in creating the kind of life I deeply desire. I know that within myself I can find the guidance I seek and the strength I need. With Love in my heart, knowing that I am unbound and unlimited, I accept myself as a happy, healthy, strong, and successful person right here and now.

Rosicrucian Reflections #87

“To be whole and free is to live and manifest on the material and immaterial planes in harmony with the spiritual laws that govern all that there is. It then becomes our duty and responsibility to transmit and reflect in our daily lives, and to our utmost ability, the highest vibrations of the universe and of our Creator.”

– Dr. Lonnie Edwards

Sorrow Flees From Me

As the great joy of life comes into my soul, flooding me with its wondrous light, all sorrow and sadness flee from me. I do not grieve, for nothing is lost or gone from me. My own cannot be kept from me. My own knows me and follows me wherever I go. I am filled with the joy of living and the great peace that comes to all who believe, I am made glad forevermore.

Buddha’s Quotes #38

“On a long journey of human life, faith is the best of companions; it is the best refreshment on the journey; and it is the greatest property. We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

Science Of Mind #58

I Keep My Thought Clear

We are surrounded by a receptive and creative medium that receives our thought and acts upon it. there is nothing harder than keeping the thought straight, and nothing else so desirable. It is not easy in our contacts with the daily world to keep our thoughts so clear that we never become unpoised, that we never accept anything we do not wish to accept, and that we always control the intellect so the emotions do not respond unless the intellect says to respond. But whenever we can do this, our destiny will be in our own hands, backed by an immutable Power. But before we do this, we must relate and harmonize ourselves with the Infinite. We oppose It when we admit that anything opposes us. We deny it when we admit that good is denied to us.

When we find ourselves in discordant conditions, we should never say, “Oh, what’s the use?” Rather, we should say, “There is Something in me that is greater than this condition and It can dissolve it.” We have the privilege and power to do this, and if we use this ability properly, it will produce wonderful results. Remember that the cause of everything is and idea and that the thought is the mold in which our tangible experience is cast.

I have the power to live the life of good. my thought reflects the good that I desire. I am conscious of the focus of my thinking, and my own is manifesting itself to me now. There is nothing kin me that can hinder it from entering and taking possession of my Soul. M y own is now expressed.

Spiritual Teachings #9 Rishi-Sufi

Ask a Question

The Pain of the lover for the Beloved

     The Sufi’s deep longing for union became a poetic ‘pain’. Pain is the longing of the ‘lover’ to rejoin the ‘Beloved’. Pain represents the friction and struggle that comes from having to live in this transient world with an ageing body, all the while longing for union with one’s own vast God-consciousness which transcends the trivialities of this world. Uncertainty and insecurity of every arising moment and day, not knowing how the mind will unfold in its search of the path is also the source of this pain. This is a pain without a cure. The Sufi would rather die than live without the pain of that longing for union. It is a joyful pain, the pain of being alive, the pain of being in love with, but separated from, the Beloved.

The Beloved is indeed the goal, the lover is the veil,

The Beloved is indeed immortal, the lover’s life must fail. – Rumi

There is no hindrance between the Beloved and the lover,

You are yourself the veil in-between; remove the cover. – Hafiz

O Lord

My painful nagging is that your pain will not fade.

He who bears the pain of the Friend would become immortal

in the love and grace of His Fellowship. – Ansari

I have fallen in an ocean and I see no shore.

I am afflicted with a pain that has no cure. – Attar

I have inherited a pain from the Friend,

Which I will not exchange for a hundred thousand cures.

– Rumi

Rosicrucian Reflections #86

“The Rosicrucian realizes that at any moment, at any time of day, we can turn our thoughts inward and immediately contact the mind and consciousness of God. We realize that we do not have to be in a church to pray. We realize that we can talk with God on a hilltop, under a tree, in a canoe, in an automobile, in the cellar of our house, in the garret, or in the corner of our bedroom. God is not reached by turning our thoughts outward to some point in the heavens but by turning our thoughts inward to the temple within where the consciousness of God is always ready to respond and give help.”

Essene Meditations And Blessings #87

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.

Weekly Meditation #85

Out Of The Depths Of Life

Out of the deep places of my life my soul has cried to the divine and the divine has answered. Out of the turmoil and struggle and strife I have come to God, and God has heard me and understood. I shall nevermore be sad, for I have found what the soul craves – the inner life and love of the All Good. The divine has heard.
