Here’s another magnificent quote from one of my most favourite books, the Aquarian Gospel. Hope it inspires you too:
‘I would not stay the flow of your great streams of thought; but I would turn them to the channel of the soul.’
What I love about it is that it refers to the openness and expansiveness that is characteristic of alignment with your Soul.
At the moment I am finding myself extremely challenged at a level of personal safety and quickly I go into constricted mode, blocking my flow of energies of life and success. So I’m doing lots of meditation to help myself keep expansive. I have a brilliant toning done by Thomas Hubel, a spiritual teacher based in Germany, which really clears away much of emotional garbage. I’ll post his web details soon.
Here’s a deeply moving quote from the Aquarian Gospel.
‘But man has something in his Soul, a something that will tear the veil apart that he may see the world of real things. We call this something spirit consciousness; it sleeps in every Soul … it gets activated when the will of man throws wide the door through holy thought’.
‘God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one.’
I read this piece by Osho last night and loved it. For me attaining the high road of love is achieved by fully embracing all levels.
‘The lowest level of love is sex – it is physical – and the highest refinement of love is compassion. Sex is below love, compassion above love; love is exactly in the middle.
Very few people know what love is. 99% of people unfortunately think sexuality is love – it is not. Sexuality is very animal; it certainly has the potential of growing into love, but it is not actually love, only a potential.If you become aware and alert, meditative, then sex can be transformed into love. And if your meditativeness becomes total and absolute, love can be transformed into compassion. Sex is the seed, love is the flower and compassion is the fragrance.
Buddha has defined compassion as ‘love plus meditation’. When your love is not just a desire for the other, when you love is not only a need, when you love is a sharing when your love is not that of a beggar but an emperor, when your love is not asking for something in return but is ready only to give – to give for the sheer joy of giving – then add meditation to it and the pure fragrance is released. That is compassion; compassion is the highest phenomenon.’
I forgive everyone who has ever hurt or harmed me, consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.
I OFFER THEM GRACE
I ask forgiveness for everything I have ever done to hurt or harm another consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.
I ASK FOR GRACE
I forgive myself for everything I have ever done to hurt or harm another consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.
I ACCEPT GRACE
I AM FREE. ALL CHAINS AND RESTRICTIONS FALL FROM ME. AND I STAND IN MY FULL POWER AS A MASTER.
Thanks to Laa’iqah Ebrahim for sending this to me!
These are my favourite thoughts this week. I have written them, spoken them and contemplated them. In fact I have tried to draw them into me, deeply, making them part of my very cellular make up. Hope you get as much mileage from them as I do!
‘I follow my feet, and tune into right action’
‘Right action comes from the flow of life’ Thomas Hubel
‘I awaken the God within me – infinite intelligence, power and love.’
‘Life is creative, miraculously helpful’
‘Who I am is enough to create an ideal set of circumstances’
As I grapple with life, sometimes up, sometimes down, I hold fast to these core thoughts. And they help me. Like a little anchor in the seas of growth, change and craziness, sometimes they keep my head above water, other times they make me fly!
‘Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of it – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place where you can get frayed and crazy. The hub of calmness, that’s your heart, that’s where God lives within you, where you will always find peace.’
So love this quote. Hope it inspires you too! “When we live our life contrary to the inner guidance of our Soul, our actions often have a disharmonious effect upon ourselves, others and the Earth. This is why the evolution of individual human consciousness is intimately linked with the future of this planet. In light of this, the crisis of all physical illness, emotional imbalance and planetary upheaval has but one ultimate purpose: to provide an opportunity that will motivate us to realign our body, mind and emotions with the infinite love, wisdom and healing of our Soul. Therefore, whenever we gather the courage to do whatever it takes to end the war within, we contribute directly and immediately to our own healing and transformation as well as to the peace that our world cries out for.” – John-Michael
