Victoria Elizabethaan - Think Big Life Coach CentreAre you desirous of a spiritual change?  Cosmic spirituality is not about religion. Cosmic spirituality is not about fortune telling. Cosmic spirituality will not put you in touch with any of the gods or their rituals, traditions or rules. Cosmic spirituality is not about secular , religious or intellectual social networking. Cosmic spirituality is here to assist you in developing the richer and more advanced inner human qualities that are necessary for you to function as an independent adult spirit being who conducts all affairs according to reason and responsibility. Cosmic spirituality teaches you how to extend this mature adult Cosmic consciousness into community living in a spirit of oneness. Cosmic spirituality seeks to bring individuals together who have been awakened or who are at that stage where the spirit is demanding the awakened experience.

Do I love me?

How can I say I love me?

When the thoughts I hold hurts me so

I seldom feed my mind with goodness

Or allow my true self to grow

 

I walk the road of negligence

And act as if I do not care

I lie, I cheat and make believe

And plunge me in despair

 

How can I say I love me?

When facing the truth I do not do

I smoke, I drink, and give my body

All the things that aren’t food

 

I seldom take the time to reflect

Even though I have much to regret

I laugh, I smile , walk on a high

While my spirit keeps asking ‘Is this a lie?’

 

How can I say I love me?

When I have made no plan

To take myself from hopeless misery

Take on that mission for which I should stand

In My Moment Of Silence

In my moment of silence

I hear my heart beat

The sounds of the birds

The rustling in the wind

In my moment of silence

I face only me

My thoughts

My actions

The words I need to speak

In my moment of silence

When I sit to muse

I slowly change my vibration to whatever I chose

It is in my moment of silence that my spirit becomes

All that manifests themselves in what I do or need to get done

What about me?

The job is calling

I must go and see

If someone is late they might need me

 

Did my child just scream?

Is he reaching for me?

A diaper to change?

A bottle of feed?

 

The Laundry is piling

This isn’t right

My daughter’s graduation is tonight

 

I forgot my groceries are at the end

I have no money left to spend

 

My clothes are out of fashion

What do I do now?

They can’t be worn to the function

And my daughter is late for the prom

 

It is then that I stopped …

I began to see

My busy life did not include the real me

 

No Grace

No virtues

No goodness to achieve

No knowledge

No wisdom to make me complete

 

I raised my hand and I cried, ‘Stop Now!’

I am here for more than all that

I am here to become

Evolution

Meditation

Having areas in which to make personal improvement makes life exciting.

Those inner qualities I need to cultivate,

The physical posture I try to maintain,

My health, I falter, but regain

The thought process I sought although through pain

The relationships I seek to build cause my emotion to strain

And embracing loss sometimes leaves me drained.

Outside of the opportunities posed by the need for improvement

Life loses its luster

I am bored

I have an excuse to be complacent

My Little Gem For Success

Meditation Exercises

If I approach a difficult task as if it were easy, the likelihood of failure is rather very high. This is because I would not have sent the correct signal to my emotional (or lower) mind so it can make the necessary preparation that would guarantee my success.

 But if I, by reason and responsibility, embrace the fact that the challenge I face is a difficult one. The correct signal would be sent to my emotional mind. My emotional mind would be better able to make the necessary preparation needed for my success.

 My emotional mind provides me with the willpower, desire and motivation to succeed. Willpower and motivation must be directly proportional to, or exceed that needed for the task at hand. I cannot move a mountain with the willpower and motivation to move a mound.

My Health Pledge

Cosmic Spirituality

I seek to make me healthier

By being aware of all the organs of my body

By knowing how each organs functions

By understanding the steps I must take to optimize their function

By refraining from engagement in any activity that will impede their function

 

I seek to make me healthier

By being aware of what I eat

By doing the necessary research about what I eat

By reading the labels attached to what I eat

By refraining from eating what tastes good but is not good

 

I seek to make me healthier

By engaging in daily exercise

By standing more and sitting less

By walking more and driving less

By not just going to the gym to be a part of the ‘in thing’ but seeking out the exercises that are necessary for my specific body

 

I seek to make me healthier

By taking the necessary steps that will ensure my spiritual evolution

By not just following, I will ask ‘Why?’

By recognizing my inadequacies and embracing change

By seeking, searching, researching, evaluating, considering and reflecting

 

I seek to make me healthier by embracing positive relationships

By enriching and empowering others

By saying sorry when I should

By fostering a forgiving spirit

By offering a smile when it is needed and being a strong support in times of grief.

 Don’t Assume

 

Don’t Assume

Don’t Assume

Don’t Assume

 

Let’s be fair

Check the facts

Get it clear

 

Make the move

Before you roof

Or you lose

 

An angry outburst

May make things worse

So do your search

 

Be diligent in time

It is worth the while

And you will smile

 

When it becomes clear

That the friend you hold dear

Never cast you a snare

Self-Control

Meditation Exercises

I am governed by my intentions

Not my moods

 I control my attitudes by the thoughts I brood

I never said my behavior was because of you

 Oh shoot!

 Virtue and blessings are not innate

 I must play by the rule

 I laugh and cry

 And I wonder why

 Two plus two equals four

 And five plus four gives me nine.

 Why can’t my behavior yield the result I think

 And six plus six stretches beyond twelve

 To fill the hole I created in the sink

 Ha ha

 I must play by the rule

 True laws are built on equations!

 I will not be fooled.

 Introspection

Meditation exercises

If I rely only on what I taste and feel

On what I hear smell or see

If I rely only on what looks right or wrong

On what my socialization says

Or the gathering throng

If I never pause, reflect and ask myself ‘why?’

Seek, search, contend and analyze

How will I grow?

Surpassing my inadequacies

Reach into the deepest depths

And extend into the heights of limited stretches.

If I do not stop to introspect

I would confer on myself narrow mindedness.

I Am More Than A Bag of Feelings

Meditation Exercises

I will not allow myself to be governed by the lower mind.

Life is not just about what looks good to me

Neither is it just about the beauty I see.

Life is more than my sensational touch

Sweet smell

Or that which enters my ear in a rush

Yes

I am a feeling being

And that’s neat

But feelings … most times … is void of the truth I seek

I will allow my higher mind to tell me how

Its rational thought to guide my ‘now’.

‘I AM Sorry’

 I say ‘I am sorry’

I say ‘I am sorry’ to free my spirit

I say ‘I am sorry’ to maintain the health of my body

When I refuse to say ‘I am sorry’ I imprison myself

A spirit that is imprisoned cannot soar

Cannot evolve

Can be heard screaming for that liberation

A body that is imprisoned

Is unable to adequately eliminates its waste

Suffers toxic build up

Erodes and degenerates

Free Yourself

 

I pop in and out of what is commonly and loosely called existence

As I do so,

May determination floats on every breath I take

The determination to love and to give

For it is as I love and give

That I myself am loved and given

The determination to forgive

For it is as I forgive

That I myself am forgiven and my spirit is made free

The determination to care and to share

For as I care and share in the spirit of community

My spirit expands

Traversing heights and depths

And as I do so

I become like gods

Knowing

Perceiving

Sensing

Reasoning

The heights and depths

The here and now

The beginning and the end

How did I Speak to you

 

How did I speak to you?

Was I mean?

Did I make you feel dignity or make you retreat?

How did I speak to you?

Was I loud?

Did I make you feel embarrassed when you stood in that crowd?

Did my words injure instead of heal?

Did they knock you down,

Causing you to kneel?

How did I speak to you?

Did I make you  scrape the floor?

As I relish in selfish glory and my ego soar?

Did I make you search for worth while I bask in your hurt?

Or make you feel like you were nothing but dirt?

How did I speak to you?

Did I smile a smile of ‘I got you there!’

While you looked at me helplessly in despair?

How did I speak to you?

Was I mean?

Did I imprison you

Or make you feel free?

Become Like Divine Mind

If you do not evolve into the higher mind, you cannot appreciate the expanse of Divine Mind; for like is known by like.
Extend your spirit beyond the boundary of your finite body, and make yourself evolve to the likeness of that which is – that greatness which is beyond all measure.  Rise above all time and embrace your own  eternity. Then you will appreciate Divine Mind.

 Believe that for you too nothing is impossible. Think that you too, you are immortal. Grasp all things in your thought, so that you become every craft and science.  Find your home in the haunts of every living creature. Make yourself higher than all heights and lower than all depths. Bring together in you the seemingly opposing poles of your emotional components – love and hate, courage and fear, heat and cold, dryness and fluidity. Then you will appreciate Divine Mind.

 

Think that you are everywhere at once, on land and sea. Extend yourself into the heavens. Think that you are not yet begotten, that you are in the womb, that you are young, that you are old, that you have died, and that you are in the world beyond the grave. Grasp in your thought all of this at once, all times and places, all depth and height, all substances and emotions and all magnitudes together. Then you can appreciate Divine Mind.

But if you confine the true self within the body, and abase yourself, and say “I am nothing, I know nothing, I can do nothing; I am afraid of earth and sea, I cannot mount the heavens; I do not know who I am, I do not know where I am from, I do not know what I shall be, neither do I know where I am going;” then how can you become like Divine Mind.

Let It Flow

 

Close your eyes.

Let your mind expand.

Allow no fear of death or darkness to interrupt its journey.

Let your mind merge with Mind.

Let it flow

Let it flow out upon the great circle of consciousness.

Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration,

Let it flow and grasp the Cycle of Eternity.

Let it flow

Let it flow

Let it Flow

(An Adaptation of Hermes Trismegistus)

When I Get Angry

I have come to realize that no one makes me angry

I get angry because I am me

I get angry because I am unique

 

Whenever I get angry I ask myself ‘why?’

The revelations are astonishing when they come to my eyes.

 

I found my anger was not tied to what was done

My anger stemmed from the fact that I did not have the time and wanted to run

I found that my anger was not linked to what was said

I am reminded of my past or a book I have read

My anger is not linked to his smile

It was my perception of it as guile

My anger is not tied to what I just heard

It was my interpretation of the word

My anger is not tied to the look on her face

It is my personality, it is my taste

My anger is not tied to the size of the crowd

It’s just that I would rather not deal with it now

 

The revelation has caused me to think

I need not blame anyone or anything when I am on the brink

What I should be doing instead

Let the energy flow, but not in a way that neighbors dread.
