Maurice Nicoll Said...



Maurice Nicoll said that Christ did not become born a perfect man.
He had to find the way...
through his temptations...
mechanics.
As each of us find the way...
our unique and connected way...
we will  also be able to Serve.  
How else could Christ and all 
other beautiful Conscious Beings 
help us relate to our human godly part?

All the Soarings of My Mind...




All the soarings of my mind begin in my blood.
The only journey is the one within.
Spring has returned. 
The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Love consists in this, 
that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.
Live your questions now, 
and perhaps even without knowing it, 
you will live along some distant day into your answers.
Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses 
who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.
If your daily life seems poor, 
do not blame it; 
blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; 
for the Creator, there is no poverty.
Everything is blooming most recklessly; 
if it were voices instead of colors, 
there would be an unbelievable shrieking 
into the heart of the night.
This is the miracle that happens 
every time to those who really love: 
the more they give, 
the more they possess.
I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

Marsilio Ficino...




Marsilio Ficino talks about "divine frenzy" 
and the gifts of poetry from the gods.  
It is just this openness to let them in, 
to hear their words ... this is the true WAY.

I Was Going Through a Difficult Time...



I was going through a difficult time a while ago...
very low... and something came to me, 
a new way of looking at it and working with it.  
I "spoke" to this other part of me 
and said something to the effect that "I" am going to move forward...
and if this (other part of myself) wants to come along...then fine. 
But it needs to stay to the side.. And that was so helpful. 
I wasn't denying it, but offering it another way.

Bach Used to Write ...



Bach used to write "to the greater glory of God" 
in the margins of his music ... 
he never forgot to be grateful for his immense gifts ... 
He never forgot that the divine was working through him. 
I have been pondering on the power of gratitude to heal, 
to destroy identification, 
to make us more open to the beautiful flow of divine energy
which grace can supply. 
Stepping aside from one's preoccupations, 
one's manic efforts to "do" everything, 
we are given the gift of a larger perspective ... 
Then we see more through the eyes of the gods, as Bach did. 
If we step aside from our struggles, 
the higher can work its magic through us. 
Every one of the Conscious Beings we study shows us this ... 
shows us the results of this ... in the beauty of their verifications, 
their art, their eliminations. 
We have their gifts to dip into and each time, 
we are given both the gifts of their hearts and souls, 
and the encouragement to follow a similar path, 
the one WE make of our lives.

Let Your Soul...




Let your soul stand cool
before a million Universes.

Ouspensky explains...


Ouspensky explains 
that the gospels contain and speak about awakening - 
but - not how to do it.
It takes that special invisible force of C influence 
to continually enter us, our hearts our minds, 
and a special coming together of souls to make a school 
and to FIX that special state more.
