The Miracle of Creation

The spontaneity of life is an expression of essences interacting effortlessly.  The miracle of Creation is continuous, and all life shares in the Divinity of its Source, for nothing comes into existence except by Divine ordinance.  Once the sacredness of life is revealed, there follows the knowingness of what is meant by the phrase, “Gloria in Excelsis Deo!”

Be Resolute

Be resolute on the level of absolutely no reservation.  Avoid the lure of the astral realms.  Beware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing, for they are attracted to the devotee who is making significant progress.  Do not accept anyone into your life who does not pass the calibratable level of Truth.  Keep your spiritual goal ever in awareness, no matter what the activity.  Dedicate all endeavors to God.  Remember the true nature of God and avoid any teachings that state otherwise.

With Humility

In Reality, everything is spontaneously manifesting the inherent destiny of its essence; it doesn’t need any external help to do this.  With humility, one can relinquish the ego’s self-appointed role as savior of the world and surrender it straight to God.  The world that the ego pictures is a projection of its own illusions and arbitrary positionalities.  No such world exists.

Inner Peace

With the experience of inner peace comes great strength. An energy field of total peace is unassailable. The person who has found inner peace can no longer be intimidated, controlled, manipulated, or pro­grammed. In this state, we are invulnerable to the threats of the world and have, therefore, mastered earthly life. When the state of peace has become established, ordinary human suffering is no longer possible because the very basis of that vulnerability has been totally relinquished.

Effect of Positive Feelings

It is obvious that higher states of consciousness have profound effect on our relationships, because one of the laws of consciousness is like goes to like. Our inner states are actually radiated to others. We can positively affect others even when we are not physically with them. Feelings are energy and all energy gives off a vibration. We are like sending and receiving stations. The less negativity we are holding, the more aware we can be of what others are really holding about us. The more we love, the more we find ourselves surrounded by love. The replacement of a negative feeling by a higher one accounts for the many miracles one can experience in the course of life. These become more frequent as one continues to surrender.

As we surrender, life becomes more and more effortless. There is a constant increase in happiness and pleasure, which requires less and less from the outer world to be experienced. There is a diminution of needs and expectations of others. We stop looking ‘out there” for what we now experience as coming from within ourselves. We let go of the illusion that others are the source of our happiness. Instead of looking to get from others, we now look to give.
