You were brought forth by the Light. This Light induced life into the tiny aqueous embryonic physical form. From the unity of Light and that host form a being was created. You were created.
At some point in our early lives many of us loose our memory of the Light. Rather our awareness is diverted and we are restricted by a reality that wants us to respond to its ever-persistent demands and expectations. In simple terms, we forego the wisdom of God, the Light, for satisfaction of self-serving desires.
Wondering in the dark causes loneliness and a sense that something is missing. And so, many come to a point in their lives where they eventually search for truth and in doing so acknowledge the Light, and recognize its divine power. When initially entering this new awareness, folks begin to see into the flawed conventional reality of self. They begin to view this reality from an objective point of view, much as if who they are is playing on a theatre screen, and they are the detached viewer.
In entering this transitional point many folks claim to see the self from a distant and removed vantage point. They realize that a powerful attraction, something beyond conventional reality is drawing them toward it. Something of a divine transpersonal nature is pulling them away from their pursuits of self-indulging wants and cravings.
Worldly desires become more and more meaningless during this transitional period.
Followers of the Light realize that the magnetic force of divine wisdom is redirecting their awareness and that they are part of Something that is Ultimate and Wise.
Once this recognition is acknowledged then what is to be done next? How does one immerse one’s self in this new reality? How do those who have entered this brink, evolve into the Divine Self and share in Divine Consciousness. The answer is: we must first be clear about our intention, then remain faithful and attentive to that intention.
I’m not speaking of intentions that are based on firstly satisfying self-gratifying expectations, wants and desire. I’m not referring to intentions that are pinpointed to getting a new Bentley or affording a wardrobe overhaul.
Intentions that emanate directly from self-serving worldly cravings are rooted in the idea that we lack something and will thusly be happy once we get whatever we believe is missing.
Those desires are seeded and propagated in a reality that restricts both self-awareness and our spiritual transformation. I am speaking of intentions that call forth love, happiness, and the fullness of life. These intentions will bring forth into our lives everything that is required to nurture, develop and support their wellbeing.
In asking that God guide you and ingratiate you with fullness, willingly release your worldly appetites. Ask that God take control of your daily comings and goings. Ask that you experience Love, and it is love that you shall receive. Ask that you be happy and you will be given the where-with-all and guidance to be a happy being. Ask that you experience a life of fullness and you will enjoy the abundant flow of love and happiness that comes your way. “Ask and you shall receive.” Ask, then allow God to do His thing. Get out of the way. Ask to receive the Light and you shall be the Light of the world. Don¤¤
Treasures of the Light
Last Sunday at The Center for Happy Beings, the theme of our talk was fear. We spoke of how we involve fear in our everyday lives, and also how fear can take control our behavior and the direction of our lives. We looked at how to transcend our fears, and get beyond the hurt that fear has caused us. Then we participated in a guided meditation where we silently and individually returned to a critically fearful place in our past, and allowed the fearful emotions to dissipate and then diminish. It was a great day for the Light. Each Sunday morning is an adventure in finding new treasures of the Light. db¤
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis - Martha Beck
From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
An age is called "dark," not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it. ~James Michener
Even a thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us.- Nietzsche

What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside of the frame.
It is a paradox of life that some of the best people we ever meet are those who have suffered a great deal. Their lives are like still waters that run very deep. There's a quality of inner goodness that has been wrought through all the pain.-
