Spiritual Treatments #17

These treatments are from Ernest Holmes’ book ’34 Spiritual Treatments. Use them 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.

 

 

Divine Intelligence In Action

“I now let the Divine Intelligence guide and direct me. I let the Light within flow through me. Divine Mind makes no mistakes, impels, propels, and compels me into my right place and into right action. No thought pattern of the past has any power to obstruct right action. No belief of limitation can bind me. I am free – always about the Father’s business. Always in my right place – governed by Divine Intelligence and Wisdom. Every thought, every impulse, and every feeling is a manifestation of this Christ Mind within me. It is the mind of health, strength, vitality, and love. Therefore, I manifest and glorify the Father within. It is the mind of beauty – eternal youth conscious of its own divinity and its infinite power. I am that right now; and so I let good, the great law of Mind operate upon my word, bringing it into perfect manifestation. I thank thee Father, that it is so right now.”

Daily Meditation #8

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

 

“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.”

 

The Circle Is Complete.

The universal circle of love is complete. It comprehends all, includes all, and binds all together with cords of everlasting unity. I cannot depart from its presence or wander from its care. Divine love is complete within me. The love of God binds me to itself and will not let me go. Divine love lives within my heart, and journeys through life with me eternally. I sit in the presence of eternal love and learn the wondrous things it tells me, for it is God. Love sits within me.

-Ernest Holmes

Words To Wake Us Up #5

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

“Your life has an inner purpose and an outer purpose. Inner purpose concerns being and is primary. Outer purpose concerns doing and is secondary.

The true or primary purpose of your life cannot be found in the outer level. It does not concern what you do but what you are – that is to say, your state of consciousness.

Action, although necessary, is only a secondary factor in manifesting our external reality. The primary factor in creation is consciousness. No matter how active we are, how much effort we make, our state of consciousness creates our world, and if there is no change on that inner level, no amount of action will make any difference. We would only re-create modified versions of the same world again and again, a world that is an external reflection of the ego.”

-Eckhart Tolle

“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.

“The purifying Presence of Devine Love in me keeps me at peace. God through love gave Himself to His manifest world. That same love manifests my perfect expression. Devine Love permits no disintegrating force to operate in my consciousness. Hatred and resentment have no place in me. My unified Self is perfect in understanding. I am not subject to prejudice of any kind – racial, national, nor personal. My understanding of man’s basic unity in God permits no prejudices. I can choose freely the things and experiences which I like. I can reject with equal ease any experiences which I do not desire. It is not necessary that I like everything because I do not hate anything. I cultivate those experiences which I like and which are beneficial to my unfoldment. I intensify that which is desirable. That which I love reaches the greatest intensity of all because I am unified with that which I love. This keeps me emotionally stabilized and at peace.”

Giving

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

-Winston Churchill

 

There are many ways to give. You can give a concert, a party, or give up on someone. You can give someone the shaft, the bird, or you can give ’em the ol’ Robert Bell – which, I’m told, means leaving a text or instant message conversation without ending it. By the way…stop doing that! You can do all those things, but I’m talking about giving. From the old English Giefan. Being big hearted, altruistic, benevolent, and bounteous. I’m talking generosity here, largess, being open handed. Give voluntarily, and without expecting compensation, bestow good upon someone.

According to the Buddhist tradition the ideal conditions of giving are: to give a pure gift, with pure intentions to a pure recipient. This quote from the buddha perfectly sums up the way we should live: “The way to happiness is: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, give much. Fill your life with love. Do as you would be done by.” And this: “Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy; while giving, the mind of the giver is made peaceful; and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted.”

The Bible encourages giving as long as it is voluntary and with the right motive. God doesn’t like giving when it it is done to impress people, to receive something in return, or to try to buy salvation. Jesus said: “There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.” God loves a cheerful giver.

Remember, no one has ever become poor by giving, so find what gift the universe has bestowed upon you… and give it away. As Tony Robbins, master motivational speaker says: “The secret of living is giving.”

If you have nothing else to give, give kindness. True kindness is in the act of giving, without expecting something in return..

Giving is a natural response of love, the measure of a persons life is the effect they have on others. Give a piece of your heart, not a piece of your mind. Even if you’re weak you can still give. There is great power in giving as opposed to taking, so, make a donation if nothing else, it makes a difference. It benefits not only the recipient, but also the giver. We’ve all heard the expression ‘what goes around comes around. Open those channels of giving and the universe just may be obliged to return the favor.

We all have two hands. One to help ourselves, the second to help others. When all’s said and done, it doesn’t matter what you’ve accomplished or what you have, it matters who you’ve helped, what you’ve given. The great ones aren’t that way by what they have, but by what they give.

I joked earlier about the different ways of giving, but there are more ways to give than money. You can give love, you can give aide. You can help someone out, volunteer, or give someone your time. Just help your fellow human. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with helping our animal friends either.

Most philosophies and religions include a strong belief in giving back to the world, and it’s one of the most therapeutic things we can do for ourselves. A study from Northwestern University shows that people with a purpose sleep better, and it’s good for mental and physical health and longevity, and it’s even good for the genes, producing higher levels of antibody and antiviral genes.

Another study found that having a purpose like being philanthropic,or volunteering was linked to better cognitive function, and longer life in people from their thirties to their eighties. It also improved memory and executive function. It produced a more positive self-image in teens, not to mention less delinquency, and they transitioned into adulthood more easily, regardless of personality type.

An article in Mind Body magazine shows us five ways that giving is good for us:

1: It makes us feel better.

2: It’s good for our health.

3: It promotes cooperation and social connection.

4: It evokes gratitude.

5: It’s contagious.

So give until it hurts, and the next time you feel like giving someone the finger, turn it around and give ’em a smile.

Karma

“I saw that”

-Karma

 

I came across The Law of Karma in my spiritual quest, and after study, decided that what I’ve read about it makes sense. Karma ties in with reincarnation, the life you incarnate into is decided by the karma you have accumulated or paid off in previous lives. Karma is automatic and thereĀ  is no escape from it. It is absolute justice, there is no mercy; or for that matter, no wrath, although every debt must be paid to karma. There is no help from a higher source due to prayer. Karma is not really punishment or reward for good or bad, it’s just cause and effect. It acts as any other natural law.

One writer says of karma: “The good man doesn’t always reap his reward of good results, nor does the wicked man always suffer, not immediately, but eventually and inexorably.”

I’ve learned that there are two ways to look at karma. There is the fear based idea of karma, where you reap what you sow. That karma is the consequences, both good and bad, that are brought to you based on your actions, good and bad. In essence, you are judged for your actions. Or, you can look at karma based on love, where karma is a gift that brings lessons for your soul’s personal growth, and will continue to bring these lessons back around until you have learned them.

Newton’s third law states: ‘For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.’ That is karma. Good deeds bring good karma, bad deeds bring bad karma. It is the law of life and can never be altered. So, whatever you did, soon you will get it.

There are different schools of belief concerning karma. For example; the old school reincarnationists believe karma determines ones rebirth along the lines of desire and attraction. The soul’s character would attract it to rebirth according to its strongest desires, coming into life circumstances that give the greatest opportunity to work out those desires using suffering and the joys of life to grow as a better being.

The Hindu belief is that it is a great rewarder of good, and a great punisher of evil. One’s future state in the next incarnation depends on his goodness in previous lives.

Theosophists believe there is truth in each doctrine. That of the Hindu belief of the moral law of rewards and punishments, and the old school reincarnationists’s natural law idea.

There are three kinds of karma according to Hindu teachings. These are:

1- Samchita, or piled-up karma. Karma that is not yet worked out.

2- Prarabdha, or beginning karma. A persons destiny for that life.

3- Kriomana, the karma we are now making in this life by our current actions.

So, briefly, all unhappiness or pain is the result of some bad deed done in this, or some past life. And happiness, joy, and pleasure is the result of some good deed done in this or a previous life. Every soul will work out its karma and eventually reach God.

This quote gives us a good template to live our lives by: “There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind-are always attained by giving them to someone else.”

-Peyton Conway March
