Turn The Attention
To what cannot change.
Excellent quotes from this author
whose life changed at Edgar Cayce Institute
Around 1970, she became interested in reincarnation.
She had become friends with well-known occultist author Jess Stearn,
who suggested that the vivid detail in her many historical novels
was actually subconscious recollection of previous lives.
She agreed to be hypnotized and undergo "past life regression"
to disprove reincarnation.
However, according to Stearn's book,
The Search for a Soul - Taylor Caldwell's Psychic Lives (1973),
Caldwell instead began to recall her own past lives -
eleven in all,
including one on "lost" continent of Lemuria.
A Taylor Caldwell link worth the read...
even though it still comes in ways that appear to be external.
When we see fruit on the trees,
we are seeing the fruitage of an invisible life,
an invisible activity,
an invisible unfoldment appearing visibly.
As we lead the spiritual life,
looking to no man,
seeking nothing in the outer plane,
but living in continual rapport with the Life-stream,
our experience will unfold as the fruit appears on the tree,
as an externalization of an inward Grace.”
~Joel S Goldsmith
from Chapter 10 -
"REALITY AND ILLUSION".
A PARENTHESIS IN ETERNITY
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life,
clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river,
was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits,
and yielded her fruit every month:
and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
John 1:16 (KJV)
16 And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Infinite Invisible Source of All Life and Its Activity,
we are continually fed fresh manna from above every day.
Peace and be still a little while,
and see how far you rise above the world
when you release your mind from chains
and let it seek the level where it finds itself at home.
It will be grateful to be free a while.
It knows where it belongs.
But free its wings,
and it will fly in sureness and in joy to join its holy purpose.
Let it rest in its Creator,
there to be restored to sanity, to freedom,
and to love.
Give it ten minutes rest three times today.
And when your eyes are opened afterwards,
you will not value anything you see
as much as when you looked at it before.
Your whole perspective on the world will shift
by just a little every time
you let your mind escape its chains.
The world is not where it belongs.
And you belong where it would be
and where it goes to rest
when you release it from the world.
Your Guide is sure.
Open your mind to Him.
Be still and rest.
Protect your mind throughout the day as well.
And when you think you see some value
in an aspect or an image of the world,
refuse to lay this chain upon your mind
and tell yourself with quiet certainty:
This will not tempt me to delay myself.
The world I see has nothing that I want.
Spontaneity is the ‘essence’ of Being-in-the-flow of Life.
It requires total Trust that Life will ‘Live’ you Perfectly
in every moment.
It says you ‘know’ from deep in your Heart [the God-SELF],
not just intellectually that Life is unfolding perfectly
no matter ‘how’ it shows up.
that you are ‘not’ in the way, ‘not’ demanding, ‘not’ trying to control
or yearning for outcomes
but see yourself [you God-SELF] an unattached unicity …
an ever changing tapestry within
the changeless-ness of Consciousness Awareness
expressing and experiencing
IT SELF ‘as’ YOU.
because when you Live ‘as’ this Conscious Awareness
you are fearless,
nothing ‘sticks’ to you,
you have no expectations
and you are not trying to promote
any identity that is dear to you.
shows up continuously
and there is the natural joyful and playful wonder
that all new-born life experiences.
when you live spontaneously
where no baggage colors each moment.
and always a ribbon of Gratitude
wraps around each new experience.
and you are always in exactly the right place
at the perfect moment …
if only for a happy glance with another.
always fall into place as doors open everywhere
for the God you Are to extend
IT SELF to the world ‘of’ IT SELF.
