Although Consciousness Can Perceive...


Although consciousness can perceive the agony and the ecstasy 
it blesses us by seeing the beauty and the potential beauty 
in all the worlds it lives in from man to beast. 
From flower to rock 
and up and away into the starry skies.

In Our Work...

In our work we are told that the lower does not see the higher 
and therefore calls it a miracle 
which it indeed must be to the lower world.

Conscious acts come from a place of unconditional love 
and are often misunderstood by lower worlds.  
As Mervyn would say:
 ‘ the body does not represent the soul, it misrepresents the soul'.

There is That In Me...

There is that in me—
I do not know what it is—
but I know it is in me.

Wrench'd and sweaty—
calm and cool then my body becomes,
I sleep—
I sleep long.

I do not know it—
it is without name—
it is a word unsaid,
It is not in any dictionary, utterance, symbol.

Something it swings on more than the earth I swing on,
To it the creation is the friend whose embracing awakes me.

Perhaps I might tell more. 
Outlines! I plead for my brothers and sisters.

Do you see O my brothers and sisters?
It is not chaos or death—
it is form, union, plan—
it is eternal life—
it is Happiness.

I'm Working On...

I'm Working on feeling Soul gratitude 
for all of the dark nights, 
the moments others reflect my rough edges.
As these create the cracks in my exterior, 
allowing the Light into my Soul. 
And this is how inner world evolution occurs.

To Keep the Hydrogen Up...

To keep the hydrogen up is certainly a wonderful aim 
and to have an open heart 
is a wonderful foundation for the work. 
I personally don't have the being 
to use every friction I have as a gem. 
I still have dark nights of the soul 
where I feel little or no connection with God! 
It is so wonderful that it is possible to transform all that.

The Work Allows Us...

Arthur Hughes

The Work allows us to begin to see so much more clearly ...
And so with an open heart, 
we also learn to suspend our judgement i's. 
In dealing with those in sleep 
I find that a non-judgmental listening ear is key, 
and a lightness of spirit. 
I always feel this from other students 
as a special balm, 
and I know that it allows me to open up more, to see more clearly.

From Deep Within Me...

From deep within me, 
and sometimes from behind me ... 
a light shines. 
This light of life, 
which shines upon things and people, 
and makes me aware that the
creature is nothing but an instrument of that light.
~Mervyn Brady
