We are all on the journey; life itself is a journey. No one is settled here; we are all passing onward, and therefore it is not true to say, that if we are taking a spiritual journey we have to break our settled life; there is no one living a settled life here; all are unsettled, all are on their way. Only, by taking the spiritual journey you are taking another way, one which is easier, better and more pleasant.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

There is not anything one should not be ready to tolerate, and there is nobody whom one should not forgive.

Never doubt those whom you trust; never hate those whom you love; never cast down those whom you once raise in your estimation.

Wish to make friends with everyone you meet; make an effort to gain the friendship of those you find difficult; become indifferent to them only if you cannot succeed in your effort.

Never wish to break the friendship once made.

The mind that is more involved in earthly cares and attachments cannot let the soul be in the light.

The tendency of the soul is to go to the highest spheres, to which it belongs; that is its nature.

Yet, the soul cannot rise from the lower regions until it has left behind all earthly longings and attachments.

If the mind is not much attached to the earthly life and has gathered up the satisfaction of its deeds, it enjoys heaven; if the contrary is the case, then it experiences hell.

Friendship, in reality is more sacred than any other connection in the world.

Friendship is not done for a return, where measure is given for measure.

Friendship is just like recreation after the toil of the day. One can speak or be with someone who is different from all others in life.

The unselfish friend is the pure one, and it is such a friendship that will last; but a selfish friendship will vanish.

For the law of beneficence teaches this: that goodness is worth while which can withstand even badness; that kindness is valuable which can withstand tyranny.

Health depends upon the balance between activity and repose in the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch;

and every sense, in the normal condition of health, must be able to express itself and to respond.

Yet, know too that the senses need more time for repose than for activity.

But, tiredness is due to three causes: loss of energy which is the chief reason, and besides this excess of activity of mind and of body. One generally knows tiredness to be caused by excess of bodily activity, but one is apt to overlook the fact that excess of activity of mind also causes tiredness.

Health is harmony.

Harmony is tone and rhythm.

Tone is the energy; circulation. Rhythm is the regularity; the beat.

In physical terms the lack of circulation means congestion and no energy, the lack of regularity means out of rhythm.

These two conditions attract illness and are the cause of illness.

As well, inharmony of the physical or the mental will and do act upon the other.

As ye should surely treat the body with love and adornment as well tune the mind to be steady and still.

In reality every man is a world within himself.

God created the earth and then created the heavens.

This creation which is around us is first impressed upon the mind, and then the mind creates its own world, its own heaven.

It is the creation of mind, a higher world, yet within ourselves; and this world may be heaven , or it may be the opposite.

Heaven is the vision of fulfilled desire, and hell the shadow of a soul on fire, the desire is the source of heaven and its fulfillment.

At the same time it is mental fire and disappointment, or worry, or anxiety, or torture that is the shadow of the soul on fire.

Self-pity is the worst poverty.

There is so much in the world that we can pity and which it would be right for us to take pity upon, but if we have no time free from our own self we cannot give our mind to others in the world.

Life is one long journey, and the further behind we have left our self, the further we have progressed towards the goal. Verily when the false self is lost the true self is discovered.

Monday, June 22, 2009

All things, together, are searching and working for the universial Truth of what it seeks. This Truth is our purpose. This purpose is the understanding of the self.

Be ye mindful of the those things that are not to be separated in thought as mine and yours. For we are of the same in spirit, yet individual in soul. My heart is of your heart in spirit and my Truth is also of yours. Together we seek inward for the true self; our Eternal Father God and our Eternal Mother Nature.

Hold on to nothing.

Give to all everything.

Take only when offered, given or from established abundunce.

Respond and relfect with graditude, thankfulness and appreciation.

Saturday, June 20, 2009

It is right to share the work with the servant, however humble it may seem; for there is nothing in life too humble to do.

If a man can do a certain thing, he need not leave it to a poor man to do because he is higher in position. It is necessary to take help; but it is right to do everything that comes in life, regardless of one's riches, power, or position.

Each individual composes the music of his own life. If he injures another, he brings disharmony. When his sphere is disturbed, he is disturbed himself, and there is a discord in the melody of his life.

Whether conscious of it or not, your thoughts are affected for the better by the joy or gratitude of another, and your power and vitality increase thereby, and the music of your life grows more in harmony.

Then the only purpose of our life here on earth, if there be any, is the successful attainment of life's demands. But, our true life has quite different demands from those with which we are familiar. It does not want the joy experienced by this individual self only; it desires joy from all around.

It does not wish for a momentary peace, but for one that is everlasting. It does not desire to love a beloved held in the arms of mortality. It needs a beloved to be always before it. It does not want to be loved only for today and perhaps not tomorrow. It wishes to float in the ocean of love.

Seek God as your love, lover and beloved, his treasure, his possession, his honor, his joy, his peace; and this attainment in its perfection alone fulfills all demands of life both here and hereafter.

Religion is the unswerving progress in the right direction towards the ideal, which fulfills the life's purpose of every soul.

Religion means duty. The duty of every individual is religion.

Every soul is born for a certain purpose, and the light of that purpose is kindled in his soul. Everyone has the right to his own path, and should not compare the principles of others with his own, but should allow freedom of thought to everyone, since he himself is a freethinker.

Religion is the path that leads man towards the attainment of his ideal, worldly as well as heavenly.

Hold thee the God-ideal, so you might use it as a lift by which to raise yourself to the eternal goal.

The divine thought is the compass by which one steers the ship to the shores of immortality.

Leave thee not a single stone unturned that shines of truth and wisdom. Be ye deliberate in the journey, seek for divine testament and worldly confirmation.

There are moral principles one differing from the other, which are like separate drops coming out of the fountain.

But when we look at the stream, we find there is but one stream.

There are many moral principles, taught to mankind by various teachers, by many traditions, just as many drops fall from one fountain; but there is one stream that is at the source of all, and that is love.

It is love that gives birth to hope, patience, endurance, forgiveness, tolerance, and to all moral principles. All deeds of kindness and beneficence take root in the soil of the loving heart. Generosity, charity, adaptability, an accommodating nature, even renunciation, are the offspring of love alone.

The mind and body are vehicles. Through the mind and body man experiences life more fully, more clearly; but they are not happiness in themselves, nor does what is experienced through them give the real happiness.

For real happiness be ye not alienated from life, it is not the going away from the living that brings understanding. Be ye among the crowd, be in the midst of life, and yet do not be attached to it.

I wandered in the pursuit of my own self;

I was the traveler, and I am the destination.

There is One Path, the annihilation of the false ego in the real,

which raises the mortal to immortality, in which resides all perfection.

When man writes, he inscribes characters upon rock, leaf, paper, wood or steel;

when God writes, the characters He writes are living creatures.

It is when the eye of the soul is opened and the sight is keen that you can read the divine law in the manuscript of nature;

There is One Brotherhood, the human brotherhood which unites the children of earth indiscriminately in the Brotherhood of God.

Free yourself from national, racial, and religious boundaries, unite yourself in the human brotherhood, which is devoid of the differences and distinctions.

Free yourself from biased judgment on others based on class, caste, creed, race, nation, or religion.

Unite ourselves as the universal brotherhood.

The sense of justice is awakened in a perfectly sober mind; that is, one which is free from the intoxication of youth, strength, power, possession, command, birth, or rank.

So be ye with forethought of profit without contribution, for every such unremitting of surplus or prosper spreads a cover over the sense of justice within.

The desire for knowledge can be traced in all living beings, in the lower creation as well as in mankind.

The knowledge gained from the outer world is the knowledge of the cover of all things, not of the spirit of all things.

So ye will begin by knowing thyself;

It is the after-effect of this attainment that will give one keen sight into outside things, into the spirit of outward things.

Although this world remains amazing, wondrous and miraculous, still, it is only elementary in His power.

So then, it is by choice, He should see only from within - with senses and emotion, with love and nurture, with mind and soul;

while we witness creation so he might see, again and again.

And, with this blessing, our life is its own reward.

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Awaken from the sleep of complacency; fulfill the desire of Truth through knowledge and faith.

First is the purpose of life.

When the desire to live brings one in touch with one's real life, a life which is not subject to death, then truth and the purpose of that desire is accomplished.

Know too that every moment in this life has its mission; every moment in this life is an opportunity.

Those who saw the person and knew Him recognized Him in whatever form or guise;

those who could only see the coat went astray.
