With the Growth of the Inner World...

           
Sir Francis Bernard Dicksee

With the growth of the inner world, 
we also have the growth of the instinctive center. 
It can be a protector of the soul; 
it can also act as denying force.  
A conscious man/woman 
must have a well-developed instinctive center 
or they will be eaten alive. 
A conscious school 
must also have a well-developed intelligent safety system; 
otherwise tramp and crime will destroy the mechanisms.

I Ask Myself...



I ask myself are these words I speak, 
these actions I take, 
these thoughts I have serving the higher. 
To remember to ask of myself this question 
in the moment is to allow the higher to enter. 
To be able to answer the question means I have to hold presence, 
and be in presence to know where the answer is coming from. 
Is it directing me either further into sleep 
or guarding me and keeping me in the light?

The First Thing We Need to Understand...


The first thing we need to understand 
is that the plan of God is in motion, 
and it will happen with or without us. 
We are not needed for the fulfillment of God's plan.

The Awareness That Sleep...




The awareness that sleep 
makes us more vulnerable to accidents 
is surely a very strong alarm clock!

There is That Magical...Quiet Moment...



John William Waterhouse

There is that magical...quiet moment...
right as I wake up that is quiet...peaceful.... 
and essentially, without any I's.  
I use it to say "thank you" to God 
for allowing me to be alive on this day.
