I used to spend so much of my time asking God to protect me from all that I fear…dangers, temptations, enemies. Today I am awakened to the fact that whatever faces me, no matter what it is, is a lesson for me to grow. My life is not a game of chance and nothing happens to me by chance. All happens for a purpose. And if I were to think of good and bad as reality, all that happens to me would be for my good.
Today I have a new thought…a new mind; and I am a new creature. I come forth with a self fully prepared to embrace all the challenges the day brings. Embracing my challenges means I accept them, will learn from them and will allow the experiences to advance me towards my root. My root is god-like.
Inspirational Verses – Arts
Sometimes Art says it louder
The words I cannot speak
Sometimes Art shows it better
The beauty I haven’t seen
Sometimes Art touches me with affection
And embraces me with such warmth
I will extend this love to you
That I can only do through Art
My Spiritual Awakening
For me to become spiritually awakened, I have to let go aspects of me. The butterfly will never emerge if there is no letting go of the caterpillar. In like manner, I will not achieve my final state without letting go of my present state. I must let go the thoughts I presently hold. I must change my conduct. I must change my view of the world. I must seek to become the advanced consciousness. If I am afraid of letting go … scared of embracing that which appears new, there will be no transformation of my present state and I will never be truly free.
My spiritual awakening is an evolutionary journey towards the higher governing principle. It is the completeness I seek. It is that which will make me whole.
The path is paved with many challenges and sacrifices. I must detach myself from the material to allow for the expansion of my immaterial. I must allow my taste for the world to slowly fade. I hate having to let go. There are things I hold dear. But I come to realize that there is no compromise.
In the process of discovering who I truly am, I have to first descend before I can ascend. I must come to terms with the beastly me that was: the selfish or religious me that I am; and the cosmic me that I wish to become.
It may take me months
It may take me years
It really doesn’t matter; because it is an awakening from fear, an awakening from the unknown, an awakening from unhealthy living an embracing of the all.
My spiritual awakening ignites in me responsibility and the freedom of self control. But not without discomfort and pain. And not without loneliness and lack. I embrace the discomfort, the pain, the loneliness and the lack; because they allow me the opportunity to reflect, to consider and to question.
Inspirational Verses – I Seek To Know
I seek not just to be known
But to know
That which will transform me into the highest sense of being
Where all selfish greed, glory, desire and gain have died
And what shines forth is a unified me
The blossom of oneness
My hurt is not as important as our hurt
And my joy fades as I resolutely aspire after our joy
I realize that the entire cosmos is built not only on one law but many laws. Fundamental to all these laws are governing mathematical principles. The cosmos provides numerous mathematical principles that I may employ to give me my desired result.
Two plus four gives me six.
But so does three plus three
And one plus five
The truth is
I must actively combine factors to achieve what I desire
I must act
For the cosmos to react
There Is One Human Race
There is only one human race.
We are one
Coming forth from One
Sharing the substance of One
Connected to each other by that One
What ever we do to one
We do to ourselves
When we mistrust one
We mistrust ourselves
When we get angry at one
We are angry at our selves
And when we refuse to communicate with one
We have numbed an aspect of ourselves.
Our Emotions Are A Part Of Our Humanity
Asking someone to get rid of an emotion is unrealistic.
Our emotional components contribute to making us human.
We cannot get rid of hate and still have love.
For who knows the point at which love ceases to be love and becomes hate?
We cannot get rid of fear and still have courage.
For who knows the point at which courage ceases to be courage and becomes fear?
There is no way under the sun that we can get rid of our emotions and still be human.
What can be suggested however, is that these emotions are channeled in such ways that they build , enrich and empower the all.
And even then,
Sometimes to build first requires a tearing down.
And a rebirth can only take place if there was death.
The bottom line is therefore;
May all our conduct be guided by the Christ – that spirit of reason that emerges from the higher governing principle. If our action is guided by the Christ, the health and well being of the all is guaranteed.
On The Origin Of The World
Which is more plausible,
To believe that at some point in time nothing existed; and something came forth from nothing?
Or to believe that something always existed and all things came forth from that ‘something’?
To believe that whatever this self perpetuating ‘thing’ is, there is an internal logic by which it operates?
Or to believe that everything came forth as the result of randomness …that which is not governed by any internal logic?
To believe that because I do not know all, all does not exists?
Or to recognize the superiority of all over who I am?
My wisdom is not judged by how much I speak
Neither am I considered wise because my clothes are neat
The consideration I give to others is more a measure
And the extension of inner peace without a feeling of pressure

I will not worry about the problems I can solve and the challenges I can face up to.
But neither will I worry about the problems I cannot solve or the challenges I cannot face up to.
Worry never makes a burden lighter
It adds to challenging situation by reducing the amplitude of my vibration hence hindering me from excelling or being successful
It also causes my body to deteriorate

What does personal responsibility means to me?
It means hard work
Keeping my words
Living within my means
In the absence of personal responsibility
I feel vulnerable
I have difficulty pursuing my dreams and my goals
I am like a door on a hinge
Any road takes me to where I want to go.
