We go within the temple of the body-mind to meet the voice of truth, the soul self that is our finest teacher and most loving friend.
In this calm, peaceful silence are our dreams of life and the means of making them come true. Step by step in this adventure in consciousness, we master our emotions, illuminate our minds, heal our bodies and evolve into the self-actualized beings that we wish to be.
It is a journey walked alone, in the silence and its attunement to the divine within us and all things.
Even in the darkest moments of our lives
this inner light guides us, like a lantern,
onto a path leading up the mountain of
wisdom and higher consciousness.
The climb up the mountain path may be rugged
but with each step our perceptions widen and
the beauty and truth in us and in all that is.
While exploring this higher road, allow your body and mind to relax into these words and images and we will take a brief journey.
Remember a time of great happiness, peace and joy in your life. Now hold these memories and feelings in mind for just a few moments. Notice how your heart opens and your body relaxes.
If you choose to do so, you
can live in this consciousness more of the time
and take a higher road through life, one that
begins with inner peace and leads to joy and
perfect freedom. You can step onto the path
of peace during meditation, while enjoying nature's
beauty, and in doing what you love to do.
When we are calm and clear,
we respond to the world with the centeredness
and balance of our natural, core state. By remembering
how this state of mind feels, we can return
to it at any time.
In this peacefulness lies our ability to access
infinite wisdom. With the benefit of the soul's
universal awareness, which many call the spirit
and some call higher mind, we make wise choices
based on our personal and collective good. We
become more aware and conscious of what is best
for us and others.
Becoming more aware and seeking our highest
good draws us into attunement with our inborn
desire for wholeness. We discover more elegant
ways to express and live our lives. When we
are ready to do so, we walk away from addictions
which ease our emptiness and sustain us temporarily,
but never fill us up or allow us to stand on
Free of stress, distraction and fear, we fill
with gratitude and open up to an energetic force
that loves us more than anything else. Its radiant
light magnifies the soul's finest qualities.
These blossom into our life work: a destined
path of service to self and others. Shifting
from ego-based reality to intentional living,
we let go of old patterns and consciously replace
them with spiritual ideals and expectations.
Walking up the mountain of consciousness, we
stumble over rocks and pebbles and at times
feel as if we have lost our way. Yet as we climb,
determined to proceed, the rising perspective
expands our horizons and we see more clearly.
It becomes easier to leave behind what hurts
us to pursue what makes us finer.
Each step up the mountain path expands our understanding,
acceptance and tolerance of the slow and gradual
but certain evolution of consciousness.
We surmount complex challenges with growing
ease, making wise, sensible choices that benefit
us and everyone else.
With faith in life's ultimate goodness, we surrender
to the greater good and abandon our fruitless
attempts to control the people and events in
our lives. We turn inward and master ourselves.
The outer world changes accordingly.
Right away and over time, radiant light fills our lives and we begin to blossom. Our gifts and talents converge and our unique paths of destiny spin themselves out before us. We are home in a joyful world of our own making. It is created by and through love, the fabric of the universe.
In this new millennium, quantum physics is proving what mystics and prophets have always known to be true: that there is a Creative Force in this universe which, out of love, enables us to freely express our thoughts, emotions, beliefs and attitudes in any way we see fit.
Our thoughts, as deeds, become "crimes or miracles," as Edgar Cayce, the great psychic and holistic healer, explained nearly a century ago. It is up to us to choose the low road or the high road. We make conscious choices, knowing that deep, lasting lessons come out of personal choice and our experiential paths of discovery, and not fear or coercion by external forces.
In this new age of enlightenment, ancient myths and superstition are losing power and disappearing into the pages of history.
