Be Ye Therefore Perfect

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

“And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

“And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

“Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

“For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same?

“And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so?

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 5:38-48

Rosicrucian Reflections #26

 

 

“In practical living Illumination follows both Intuition and Idealism. Our intuition helps us to form a series of steps to climb. Each step in turn is an ideal; each ideal is more advanced, and more satisfying to our highest psychic self. An ideal may start with health, with personal well-being. Then it may advance to a consideration of the welfare of others, the service of society and then gradually broaden with greater understanding. The idealism prepares the consciousness for Illumination.”

Essene Meditations And Blessings #27

 

 

Meditation

A wave of the ocean glides over the sea

And crashes upon the shore.

My body dances over the meadow

And joyfully leaps into the air.

Is the wave not still one with the ocean?

Am I not one with All?

Can I separate myself from my Source?

When that wellspring flows deep within me

And not on some distant mountain?

 

The Blessing

This is the season of searching outside me,

To discover the teachers who know.

But deep within me I must remember

“When the student is ready

The teacher appears.”

When I ask the right questions

Answers always are there

For my teachers are everywhere.

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.

Science Of Mind #1

 

 

We have been given the ability to initiate a new chain of causation. There is but One Mind and we use it. The laws of nature are universal, but our use of them is individual and personal. Our thought is operated on by a universal Creativity that is infinite in Its capacity to accomplish. Thus, in taking thought we do not force anything; we merely decide what thought to follow, knowing that the result is automatic. Spirit is forever unfolding Its own nature. In the physical universe It does so independently of our thought; in our personal lives It must do Its renewing activity through our thinking. To the degree that out thinking accords with the original Nature, the same harmony will operate in our affairs that already operates in that larger world that we experience but neither create nor control.

Everything is continually being re-created. Spirit is forever making all things new. Today is the time to prove to ourselves that It knows how to bring the right things to pass for us. Let us confidently affirm the Divine Presence and actually believe that It is guiding us as we consciously bring a problem we are facing into our thought, not as a problem, but as though we were receiving the answer, saying:

I believe that Divine Intelligence, which is the Mind of God, is guiding, guarding, and directing my thoughts and actions. I believe that God already knows the answer to this particular problem; therefor, I am letting go of the problem and I am listening to the answer as though it were sure. The answer to this problem exists in the Mind of God and is revealed to my mind now. Something in me does know what to do. I joyfully accept Its guidance. I am open to new ideas, new hopes, and new asperations. This which so recently seemed a problem no longer exists, for the Mind of God, which knows the answer, is quietly flowing through my thought and feeling. Great peace and joy come over me as I accept this answer from the Giver of all life.

Selections From the World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #15 Islam

 

 

O Lord, whatever share of this world

You could give me,

Give it to your enemies:

Whatever share of the next world

You want to give to me –

Give it to your friends.

You are enough for me.

 

O God, my whole concern and desire in the world,

Is that I should always remember you

Above all things of this world,

And that in the next

I should meet with you alone.

That is why I always pray: “Your will be done.”

 

O my Lord,

if I worship you

from fear of hell, burn me in hell.

 

If I worship you

from hope of Paradise, bar me from its gates

 

But if I worship you

for yourself alone, grant me then the beauty  of your face.

Rabi`a

Rosicrucian Reflections #25

 

 

“As long as we continue to ignore our divine side and the Divine Wisdom and highly specialized faculties and abilities we have, as long as we refuse to use them or exercise them, we will remain in all of our mental and worldly affairs, nothing more than creatures of the animal kingdom. Religions say we should put our faith in God, but as Rosicrucians, we say that we should put our faith in the Divine Consciousness, the Divine Wisdom and the Divine Powers that we all possess and which reside within each of us and remain more or less undeveloped in all human beings.”

Essene Meditations And Blessings #26

 

 

Meditation

I enter into the season of the sun,

And the Sun within me responds in kind.

My heart tells me

To build my castles high

With love and clarity.

My soul tells me

To bring the Plan to earth.

My mind tells me

To bring perfection to my work.

There is much to do

and I am equal to the task.

 

The Blessing

Many are the ways to share

That mystery that is me,

And the greatest of these is Love.

To love one another, truly,

Without expectation of gain,

Is to transform the world.

I am learning to move

Beyond possession and manipulation

and into the awareness of lovingness,

Where I need ask for naught

And simply share my love.

Daily Meditation #23

 

 

No Condemnation

There is no condemnation in me nor operating through me. I am free from the belief or thought of others. I walk my own way, immune to all suggestions of condemnation. The only thoughts that enter my mentality are those that I allow to enter. I do not, and cannot, receive adverse thoughts. Only those thoughts which are helpful and life-giving find entrance to my house. There is no condemnation.

Spiritual Treatments #31

 

 

Divine Principle Abundantly Supplies All That I Desire

The ever responsiveness of Divine Principle assures me of my security. I know that whatever I need is always made manifest. My prosperity is not limited by things because I know the consciousness  is the creative power. I am aware of an infinite capacity to receive and an infinite capacity to express. I know that God Mind in me is right knowing. No concepts of limitation can interfere with my abundance. Definiteness does not create limitation because each idea that I complete and demonstrate is superseded by a new idea which I complete and demonstrate. Forms of expression are steps in an ever progressing consciousness of abundance. I have no fear of limitation because it can never be anything but a thought. Since I control that which I think, I cannot be in bondage to any thought. The Intelligence within me which chooses the idea is the same Intelligence that releases it as a completed cycle. Divine Principle expresses abundance in me at all times.
