Go Within, So You Won’t Have to Go Without…
A constant state of Love is the ultimate goal. That is when you’ve allowed pure Divine Energy to fully flow through your system. Keep striving to be a clear conductor of the Light. No ego-based filtering, just pure transmission. The Body and Mind are the receivers and transmitters of Divine Love. They must be clean and finely tuned.
In times of drastic change, the learners inherit the future. They are equipped to live in a world that no longer exists. -Eric Hoffer
You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates the same people you do. 😄 ~Author Anne Lamott
It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a sick society. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
Seeing beyond the Body to the Interconnected, Multidimensional Soul – Chapter 21, A Course in Miracles:
The blind become accustomed to their world by their adjustments to it. They think they know their way about in it. They learned it, not through joyous lessons, but through the stern necessity of limits they believed they could not overcome. And still believing this, they hold those lessons dear, and cling to them because they cannot see. They do not understand the lessons keep them blind. This they do not believe. And so they keep the world they learned to ‘see’ in their imagination, believing that their choice or nothing. They hate the world they learned through pain. And everything they think is in it serves to remind them they are incomplete and bitterly deprived. Thus they define their life and where they live, adjusting to it as they think they must, afraid to lose the little they have. And so it is with all who see the body as all they have and all their brothers have. They try to reach other, and they fail and fail again. And they adjust to loneliness, believing that to keep the body is to save the little that they have.”
Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates the spirit that laws of humanity do not alter its course. ~ Khalil Gibran
One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time…. ~ André Gide
Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it. ~ Ernest Holmes
Seeing with the Mind:
It is not seeing with the eye but seeing with the mind that gives us a basis for belief, and in this way science and religion are one. We are now entering an age when we the hold the power of life in our hands, and if it is to be used properly it must be a world dominated by love. What we must have in the world today is a chain reaction of the human spirit. If we can feel the vision and if we can act on it, if we can transmit this vision to others and persuade everyone that living in terms of the spirit is the only answer, then we can change the face of the world.” ~ Dr. Donald Hatch Andrews, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University – circa 1970 (from the book, The Superbeings by John Randolph Price)
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
The brain gives the heart its sight. The heart gives the brain its vision.
There is only One and thus every truth that becomes your state of consciousness serves to lift the whole.” ~ Marilyn Raffaele
The World is a Mirror of our Collective Consciousness:
If you follow the thread of scientific reason on human consciousness all the way to its essence, you eventually arrive at the revelation that we create reality, and that the world at large is a macrocosmic representation of the experiences of the individual. Everything conscious and unconscious that lives and breathes within the self, is mirrored as fractals in our collective experience. In this way we share each other’s pain, and in this way we contribute to each other’s greatness. Observation of the world in this light is a diagnosis of the individual. The sicknesses manifest in our shared reality are to be found within the mind and spirit of all people. When we grasp this as the true nature of reality, the path to a better world suddenly appears. The healing of the one is the healing of the whole. The way is clear now.” ~ Dylan Charles
God is not found in the soul by adding anything, but by a process of subtraction.” ~Meister Eckhart
Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know ~ Pema Chodron, Tibetan Buddhist Teacher
Recovery is reciprocal: heal yourself, heal the world; heal the world, heal yourself. Once you’re dedicated to improving your own health and the health of the earth and all her creatures, the Spirit world will rally behind you to support your commitment.” ~ Shaman and Healer, Alberto Villoldo
Einstein on the imperative of Unity Consciousness:
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in space and time. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
~ Albert Einstein
Through becoming less (in the ego’s perception), you in fact undergo an expansion and make room for Being to come forward. True power, who you are beyond form, can then shine through the apparently weakened form. This is what Jesus means when he says ‘Deny Yourself’ or ‘Turn the other cheek’.” ~Eckhart Tolle
Wishing All of You Much Success on the Path to Divine Inner Awareness, Joy, and Peace in the New Year!
