Go To The Light

Go to the light
Whether its day
Whether its night

Weather the storm
Get beyond the norm
All is well, sit tight

Applied Metaphysics

It’s all good
And everything has it purpose
Although rarely understood
There is a message in the madness

When we work with wisdom
And seek to know
We find when answer
Behind the show

It is what it is
And it always was
Breathe deep
Go slow

That Was Then

Here we go again
That was now
And this is then
Life is no longer zen
We tumble and turn
Stumble and get burned
All for the sake
Of getting our turn
And what’s it for
It such a bore
Unless we rise up and fight
With all our might
To stay alive
Is one thing
To thrive
Quite another
People have passed
Both dead and alive
They had nothing
Else to give
But give I must
For it helps me live
And not confuse
What was now
And what was then

Dearest Friend

Dearest friend,

It’s been a while since I said hello. I’d say I miss you except that we know that we are always present every where. I am grateful for your presence. All is well.

You Need No One

You need no one to
Teach you, if the anointing
You receive is God’s.

God’s spirit is in
You and among you; listen
To intuition.

Trust the stillness, and
The voice within you will give
You all the answers.

As far as New Years Resolutions go, I have two. I initially wrote them down as lessons learned last year. When asked if I had any resolutions for this year they came out of my mouth as resolutions.
Here are two ideas I wish to live by: Be gentle (with myself and others); and, trust / listen to intuition (without hesitation or doubt).

I wrote them in my Dream Journal on December 27th. The gentle part was experiential and a result of what is working for me to get through periods of depression and perceived failure. The intuition aspect is just as much a result of experience as it is from a message that became clear with the help of a dream.

In the dream I began descending a cliff above water and soon hesitated. My intention was to make the vertical descent to the water below. In my youth I ascended and descended situations like this often as we sought out swimming holes in the foothills of the northern Appalachian Mountain Range.

Age has brought with it too much hesitancy and self doubt. During the night vision a number of kids began to run, climb and jump off the cliff into the water below. Frightened, I found myself stuck and just as fearful of going back as going forward.

Pure nonsense! How many times have I had ideas, taken a few steps toward the goal of accomplishing those ideas and stopped after only a few steps? Too many! Then it’s just a matter of time before I am surrounded by people doing just what I was afraid of doing. After that I get disgusted with myself and depressed for not pursuing my dreams.

It is time to be gentle and forgive myself for hesitating and dragging my feet. Now is the time for me to trust intuition without hesitation. These ideas are good and divinely inspired. They come from quiet contemplations and motivated meditations.

Why question what is good? Why care even about the result? As the great god Nike said, “Just Do It.”

Confirmation of all these thoughts came on New Year’s Day as I read from the Lamsa translation of the Eastern Aramaic Peshitta text (the Bible, y’all):

“And you also, if the anointing which you have received from him abides in you, you need no one to teach you; that same anointing which is of God will teach you all things; it is truth, and there is no lie in it; and even as I have taught you, abide in it.” – 1 John 2:27

Faith and Hope

Faith and hope = prayer.
Faith acknowledges God as source. The divine energy of God flows through us and all things. Hope acknowledges that we are mysteriously placed here in human form yet intuitively trust that we are born of and blessed with that divine energy – the spirit of God. We have faith and we hope; in other words, we pray that we might live a profound and practical life rooted in Spirit.
May we all experience an anointing of Spirit.

These Things and More

Originally posted on Almost Reverend:

We are called by a man who lifted himself up through Spirit. He set the highest standard. He set the standard for love, patience and compassion. He encouraged us and through his example he calls us to do as he did. He challenges us to do more than he did.

These are his words. It is not blasphemous to say I AM. We are prompted to not only pray and act in his name. We are to pray andact as he did.

And so I ask, do we believe in Jesus? Or, do we believe Jesus?

I am living my life like its golden

I am cleansing my soul,West Palm Beach Angel
purging the past,
being in the present,
while envisioning the future
perfect.

Living my life like its golden-
all I need to be is me.

Written on Thanksgiving morning. I was in my car driving to a Thanksgiving Gratitude service at Hillside International Chapel and Truth Center presented by the Barbara King School of Ministry, aka BKSM Movie Night. After completing the affirmative prayer / prose in notice the song playing on WCLK was “Living My Life Like Its Golden” and had to add another line to the prayer.

Happy Thanksgiving.
Love to all,

If I Testify Concerning Myself

When this blog began the thought was to share the struggles of going through the ‘eye of the needle’ called ministerial school. This may have been my will but when challenges to my psyche popped up, the writings that came to be published were (hopefully) more enlightened than desperate.
This morning’s reading brought me to John 5:30-31. Jesus is speaking and while defending himself says, “I do not seek my own will, but the will of him who sent me.” (Lamsa’s Aramaic Translation)
The next line is what brought on the thought that my Higher Power, the one I like to call God is (thankfully) more in charge of this blog than me.
“If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true.”
Allow me to take a step back and say, the brand of religion (and we have branded our religion, haven’t we?) that I am most comfortable with is called New Thought. In New Thought we are often warned about false appearances and that our more negative and nasty emotions and thoughts are not from God. If I were to share the pitfall rather than the penultimate, then I would be testifying concerning myself. These psychological predicaments are my creations they are other than what I believe God wills for us. Therefore, my testimony would not be true.
It is and has been my prayer that God’s will and strength are witnessed in these writings.
The taking on of any challenging goal will feel like trying to put a rope through the eye of a needle. Every dark thought and every defeating feeling is overcome by the grace and goodness of the Creator. I thank God that what I’ve been inspired share the experience of light at the end of the tunnel rather than the experience of the tunnel.
