Life's Little Truths - With Giant Results

. . .with giant results in reference to spirit and its Absolute Peace, Love, Joy, Wisdom

It is in moments when we forget ourselves that we are most truly ourselves.  And in being ourselves,  Joy is immediate.

Giving it away, I have it.
Trying to get it, I lose it.
To have all, give all
To have a lot, give a lot
To have a little, give a little.
"For in the measure that you measure out,
it shall be measured back to you"

The Mastery state emerges directly from surrender.  Mastery is not the ability to manipulate the world at will through mental machinations, though this may be a step.  Mastery, true Mastery, just IS;  it is a state of Be-ing-ness that is found to be present after one "drops through the cracks" of letting go of control - total release of control - and emerges on the other side as One With God.

When we fail our most treasured steps on the way, and we all will, immediately forgive yourself and others, make amends if called for, and go on your way, free.  There is NO unforgiving God.  That part is up to us.

LOVE is the answer.

Thoughts, anyone?

Beginning Thoughts

I offer this blog as a venue for myself and others to express freely our deepest spiritual beliefs and experiences, with the hope and purpose of uplifting others as they seek Truth, and of adding to the peace and love of the world. All I ask of those who may want to post is that we do so always with love and respect.

We live in a time when many millions of us are awakening to the realization of a Unity beyond our apparent separateness.  Throughout the ages, those who have plunged deeply into prayer or meditation have emerged to report experiencing a Love, a Wholeness beyond adequate human expression. The dogma and doctrines they may have held matter not..  At mountaintop consciousness, there are no differences.  All is Love.

As I write this, Japan is struggling to recover from a horrendous disaster, the Mideast is awakening  to claim its independence, wars rage on, people are suffering.  We have strayed far from our unified peaceful self.

Each of us has a choice. Add a clear pure drop into the inky blackness, or join in increasing it.  Our combined thoughts of peace create a powerful surge of healing or, conversely contribute to the suffering.  I am not the first to say it, but it bears repeating:  thoughts are things.  Now, even science is joining the mystics in realizing that thoughts do manifest their counterpart in the world.

We live at many levels, and I will be writing about those.  But for now, the powerful level of thought is uppermost in my heart.  I invite us all to hold for Japan the thought of rapid recovery and for the Mideast and all this troubled world, let us envision mutual understanding and reconciliation.

 May there be peace in your heart and peace in the world.
