Wait, Maybe the Answer is Looking for You? (part 2)

I promised to write an answer, a sequel to the piece called “Wait, Maybe the Answer is Looking for You?”.  An answer which addresses the plight of the soul today.

I am very excited about writing and sharing answers to soul questions and yet, this morning, instead of sitting down and getting right into the article I promised you, I felt unfocused and distracted.

Enter stage right:  EGO, Maya, distraction,  a trip to the post  office, a meander around Facebook, tidying up my desk, sore muscles from yesterday’s work out.  All, seemingly keeping me away from doing what I really wanted to do, which was to keep my promise and write the post!

However, ‘do not despair’ I heard my Self say, for as always, the deeper Self was busy preparing me to present you with something very special!  Apparently, the whole day was an incubation period for what I would finally share.

True to its title~What if  the Answer is Looking for You? (part 2),   I am delighted to share with you what I found, or rather what found me!  It  is a piece of writing that came into my possession over 15 years ago, written by my son, Jesse.  I had planned to mail it to him with the package I sent him; but first I wanted to read it.  Much to my surprise and delight, I found that he was writing about the journey of the soul! As he listened from deep inside, past the babbling of the mind and beyond the chatter and clatter of the world, his soul shone through~

He wrote this piece when he was twenty-something, in the language of the soul~ poetic, vivid, peaceful, and clear.  Through it, peace finds him and presents a solution for the plight of ‘the patient soul’.

I share it with you, to beckon you closer to your inner world of peace.

And so, I present to you, my first guest blogger~Jesse D’Alessio~ poet laureate of my heart!

“Waking up in a hotel, after a long day of travel, I awoke to peace of mind, tranquility, and focus. 

I heard my Self say: Peace of Mind, Tranquility, and Focus.

And so I took a deep breath,                                                                                            Relaxed my shoulders and straightened my spine, and                                           

With both feet planted firmly on the ground, I began to follow the flow that was coursing through my veins.

Life is here and now,                                                                                                              Vivid and fresh,                                                                                                                      Made to be taken and loved and felt.

This is your experience, this is your time, now is the foreseen moment.                    This is your time to experience the physical body,                                                              To experience the physical dimension.                                                                                For when I speak of you,                                                                                                              I am speaking of all of you.

What is more central to your existence than your Soul?                                               Your Soul is your core, your base and your foundation.                                                                It is everything you have been and                                                                      Is where everything you learn in this life will be remembered.

How often we forget our patient souls.                                                                          Caught up in the mental and the physical,                                                                            We spend hours listening to the elevator music of our restless minds.

True tranquility and relaxation cannot be approached                                                 Until the incessant babbling of the mind is allowed to finish                                  Allowed to finish, or asked to stop.

I once read that we have several aspects to our minds.                                                   The most obvious is the active mind,                                                                                  The mind that thinks and plans and calculates.                                                            This is the mind that is closest to the front and the first we consult.   This outermost mind is a dynamic, creative entity that spends countless                             Hours processing, interpreting, and                                                       Feeling all of the stimulation of our daily lives.                                                            Sights and sounds, smells and sensations, language and music.

This outermost mind is most active when we access it.                                          However, when we are no longer using it,                                                                  Perhaps absorbed by a rhythmic, monotonous task                                                           Or while sitting still, a second mind emerges.                                                     This is that mind that starts you singing the last song you heard on the radio             Or that repeats to itself the last advertising jingle you picked up.

How many times have you heard this second mind,                                                  Suddenly say to itself: Nabisco,ding?                                                                                      Or some other equally pointless melody devised by advertising companies to entertain your second mind? 

How often have you desired to sit still and contemplate?                                                  To simply be silent,                                                                                                                  Only to hear a song playing over and over,                                                                   Behind the now silenced active mind?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Moving past this second mind,                                                                                              This second barrier                                                                            Is essential if we wish to access the deeper core of our being.

The human brain is stronger than any computer ever created by man.                                            The memory,                                                                                                                      The power of memorization,                                                                                          The mother board of our psyche                                                                                     Is a truly awesome, mystifying force. 

Such complexity to the human brain.                                                                                  Yet still much further into the depths of you,                                                              Lies You, the ever present Soul.                                                                                              The core of your existence,                                                                                                    The most ‘you’ part of you.                                                                              For it is the soul that will live on when your physical body ceases to move.        When the atoms of your physical self are reunited with those of the earth,                          It is your soul that will be continuing the journey.

If you should succeed to be 100 years old,                                                                                You might feel that you had lived a full, long life,                                                             But how many hundreds or thousands of years will the soul live?                                    How much more constant, eternal is your soul?                                                                 You, the soul is the part of you that will go on and on.

Still we are distracted by the physical body.                                                                              We are preoccupied by the second mind,                                                                       Which is shielding us from our subconscious.   

And how much more profound than our subconscious is the Living Soul?              Peace, Tranquility, and Focus                                                                                                 The Realms of the Soul. 

 Let us not put the body and mind on autopilot                                                               Only to wander the earth adrift.                                                                                                Let us live for the soul, with the mind and through the body.                                     A triplicity of spirit, mind, and body, combined…                                                           Interlocked and interwoven.

Such a wonder,                                                                                                                                Such an ingenious design.                                                                                                            Such a gift is life,                                                                                                                          That it might be lived to the fullest.                                                                                            Spirit, mind, and body.                                                                                                            Triplicity in One.

Goddesses Have Divine Virtues!

Girl and the Sky“The Father sits here and explains about devotion and knowledge”.                                                         Murli:  1/1/2016

Spiritual Children:  Have you understood how there cannot be true fulfillment through devotion and that it is only through ‘this knowledge’ that ordinary human beings are made into deities?”

You may be asking what is meant by knowledge in this context and how does it differ from devotion?  What kind of knowledge comes from the Father/Mother of all and is infused with the transformational magic of changing ordinary human beings into deities.  The Beloved Parent/Friend gives us ordinary humans, caught in the web of thinking we are the roles we play, the recognition of the Self.  The Beloved finds us and helps us to recognize the One, as He/She is.  The Beloved also gives the knowledge of the beginning, middle and end of the world cycle.

Again, you may be asking how can I recognize the One who comes to create the new world through this knowledge?  The Father, Teacher, and Guide comes with a gift to assist us to connect with Him/Her in the Supreme Abode, the abode of all souls, the abode of silence.  This gift comes in the form of Meditation…Raja Yoga Meditation.

As we connect with the One and get on this One’s incorporeal wavelength, we begin the process of purification of the karmas of our past and present and imbibe that One’s virtues and characteristics.  Nice tradeoff!!!

Presetly we are living in the “kingdom of Maya” where we are all sufferring from anger, lust, greed, ego, and attachment.  The One comes from on high, out of mercy and love, to  teach us and restore our original purity.  In essence, the incorporeal Beloved descends to establish a new world of purity, peace, and happiness through the power of Raja Yoga (union with the One).

“Although Maya is very powerful, there is hope.  Even those who have become completly degraded have to be uplifted. ” (murli)

 Since the Beloved is incognito, the human souls who are destined to help in the establishment of the new world, reveal the One to others and share the knowledge they have been given.  Brahma (who becomes Narayan, a deity, in his next life) and Saraswati ( becomes the deity Lakshmi, in her next life) have the distinction of being the first and best students of the One.  They are the roots and trunk of the human world tree.  Saraswati, in this life, is also called Mamma.  “She would tell everybody that we are just instruments of God and that One is getting the things done through us.  So, we should remain detached observers.   She was an embodiment of  sweetness, humility, truth, maturity, seriousness, tolerance, and cheerfulness.  Her presence transformed the vicious attitude and sufferings of others. She also had a natural disinterest towards wordly affairs and would tell everyone to live as though it were their last moment!  She would also say that an ‘effort-maker’ is one who understands the lessons of the Highest on High and translates them into practical life immediately.” from Mateshwari Jagadamba Saraswati by B.K. Surendran, from Bangalore.

“The Goddess Lakshmi has a nose, ears, and a mouth, etc. because she is also a human being.  However she has divine virtues and this is why she is called a deity (goddess).

How did she become such a beautiful deity?

It is only by remembering Alpha (the One) that one becomes a god-like deity from a human being.

Alpha is said to be the highest.  People point upwards with their finger to indicate Alpha.  Alpha is also said to be One.  

There is just one God and all the rest are children.  

This One gives you knowledge and makes you His children…It is of Him that it is said: ‘Even if you turned a whole ocean into ink, a forest into pens, and the earth into paper, this knowledge would not run out.’  

Hand over all your burdens and bondages to the Father, and become Light.” (murli)

It is possible that you will understand some of this knowledge.   Some of you will instantly have faith, whereas others won’t.

Hope is kept for everyone.  If not now, then you will definitely understand in the future.

One has to keep hoping for the souls of the world.  To keep hope in them means to have an interest in serving them.

“This knowledge and divine virtues have to be imbibed.” (murli)

 

 

 

 

 

Lightness and Magic Are Real

The deepest untruth has been to go down the road, so far, into the depths of matter that I forgot who you and I are!  

This turning away from the lightness and magic of our unlimited nature is the deepest lie.

The deepest lie is being pulled into the claws of Maya, the Grand Illusionist, and believing that this body is center stage and that you and I, the living souls, are distant and removed, waiting in the wings somewhere.

For this I apologize, for forgetting how close we are to You~  How we truly are: incorporeal, unlimited, loveful, merciful, beyond the five senses, lost in love, creative, the ultimate magicians.

Let us hold hands and circle the globe in our minds with our love and benevolence.  It can be done.  It will be done.  It is done.  The world and our souls will be made new and pristine once again. Bright and Beautiful as it was in the Beginning, So it Shall Be, Once Again.
