Words to Wake Us Up #6

 

 

“It is said that before entering the sea

a river trembles with fear.

 

She looks back at the path she has traveled,

from the peaks of the mountains,

the long winding road crossing forests and villages.

 

And in front of her,

she sees an ocean so vast,

that to enter

there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.

 

But there is no other way.

The river can not go back.

 

Nobody can go back.

To go back is impossible in existence.

 

The river needs to take the risk

of entering the ocean,

because only then will fear disappear,

because that’s where the river will know

it’s not about disappearing into the ocean,

but of becoming the ocean.”

-Khalil Gibran

Rosicrucian Reflections #30

 

 

“First of all, we must be in harmony with ourselves; we must come to accept ourselves. The best way to achieve this is to never compare ourselves with others, because the moment we do, we then judge ourselves inferior or esteem ourselves as superior, resulting in either an inferiority complex or an inflated ego. In both cases the result is a state of disharmony. To avoid this, it is best to begin with the principle that each of us is a unique being and that this uniqueness gives us our worth in God’s view, as well as in the eyes of humanity. Therefore, we should hold to our own standard, comparing ourselves only to ourselves—this being the key to our spiritual evolution.”

I Am at Home in the Universe

This meditation may be considered an all-inclusive prayer because it includes ourselves and others. It is truly doing unto others that which we would like them to do unto us, and it establishes a unity between ourselves and those around us, a feeling that we all are some part of the kingdom of Good. This all-inclusive prayer, then, is one that expands our consciousness of the true self and at the same time blesses all others.

Believing that there is a Divine Presence closer to me than my very breath, that I live in perfect Spirit, that the Good around and the God within me is one God, I say: My Father, which art in heaven within me, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, now, and I accept it. And, looking about me, I say to all people: Your Father, which is in your heaven within you, hallowed be His name, for you are One with Him forevermore. There is One Life, that Life is God, that Life is Perfect, that Life is your life now.

Looking upon the circumstances that surround me, I bless them, even as Jesus blessed the bread and broke it. Even as the loaves and fishes multiplied in the outstretched and upturned hand of his love, so I know that everything in my experience that is good is multiplied and increased. Even as I feel the increase pressing into my own experience, I give it out that I may feed and bless and multiply the good of others, who are some part of me because God is in them and in me, and we are in each other.

Rosicrucian Reflections #29

 

 

“The mystic uses their intuition a great deal, and endeavors to see into the future and to look beyond appearances. She or he reads others’ souls and hearts. A mystic does everything they can to rise up above suffering and despair; they go past the clouds and so glimpse the Sun; being both on their own and connected to the great All, they never forget that to accomplish great things we must be able to do small ones perfectly. The mystic knows that duty well carried out is an act of love and of service; and that for the service to have its full meaning, it must be selfless. It must be a gift of oneself to others, joyously agreed to, and not undergone as a great sacrifice. Love and giving should not be likened to suffering and renunciation, quite the reverse: were this the case, it would no longer be a question of love, but of masochistic behavior. True service only gives rise to good feelings, and expects nothing in return.”

Essene Meditations and Blessings #30

 

 

Meditation

There is a wholeness of my being

That I have come to know.

My life is the sum

Of my body, mind, and spirit

And more.

For I am immersed in a cosmic ocean of Life

Which connects my life with All,

and I am All.

 

The Blessing

Awareness

Of the richness of my life

Draws forth in me a yearning

To share my gifts with all,

And the greatest of these is Peace.

To work actively for peace

Within my life

And to bring that peace

To those I know

Is to make real

My spirituality.

Science Of Mind #4

 

 

To be effective, prayer must be affirmative, but it is not enough merely to affirm the presence of God. We must add to this realization the thought that Divine Intelligence is acting in and through us now. Prayer is not a wishful or wistful longing, nor is it an escape from objective reality. To become lost in our prayers might give us an unconscious desire to escape the activities of life. Therefore, we affirm that Divine Intelligence not only knows what to do, but also impels us to act on Its Knowing.

I hand my life and affairs over to Divine Intelligence, to the Power that knows how to do everything. I do this in the complete conviction that I receive only good into my experience. I know there is nothing in me that can doubt either the Divine Goodness or the operation of Its Law in my affairs. I believe that everything necessary to the fulfillment of every good desire is now in full operation, that all the circumstances in my life are tending to bring it about.

If there is anything I ought to do about this, I accept the action and know that I receive guidance and am impelled to act intelligently. Therefore, I have a complete sense of ease and assurance. I look forward joyfully as I anticipate the good that is to come into my life. I believe that all who are now praying with me will receive the answer to their desires from the same Source. My faith goes out to them even as their faith reaches back to me. For I believe that out of the great Good in which we live there will surely come to all of us an answer to our particular need.

let the soul and the body be nourished,

let the rulers reign justly over the land,

let peace and gentleness, knowledge and

let the rain arrive in time and the earth give

ample harvest,

let fairness and freedom replace fear,

let the generations continue to be fertile and

let poverty come to an end,

let every man live one hundred hearty years.

Selections From The World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #17 Voices of The First World

 

 

I Am The Wind

I am the wind that breathes upon the sea,

I am the wave on the ocean,

I am the murmur of leaves rustling,

I am the rays of the sun,

I am the beam of the moon and stars,

I am the power of trees growing,

I am the bud breaking into blossom,

I am the movement of the salmon swimming,

I am the courage of the wild boar fighting,

I am the speed of the stag running,

I am the strength of the ox pulling the plough,

I am the size of the mighty oak tree,

And I am the thoughts of all people

Who praise my beauty and grace.

Daily Meditation # 24

 

 

“Never belong to a crowd: never belong to a nation: never  belong to a religion: never belong to a race. Belong to the whole existence. Why limit yourself to small things, when the whole existence is available?”

-Osho

 

No Bad Habits

I have no vicious or bad habits. Every desire of my thought and heart is satisfied in the truth. I do not long for anything or feel the lack of anything. I am complete within myself; I am perfect within myself; I am happy and satisfied within myself. I am one with all life within me. I am free.
