Summer 2014 Prayer Circle Archives

September 24, 2014

“After this I looked, 
and the temple of the tent of witness in heaven was opened...
and no one could enter the temple
until the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended."

Revelation 15: 5, 8
 

"The followers of the Lamb have had a glimpse of the transcendent joy that can be theirs as they are faithful and true... the comforter proceeds to illustrate the battle that is constantly going on in the spiritual life of the initiate." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"It cannot be emphasized often enough that we draw spiritual tests to ourself by the very intensity of our desire to know God and to be worthy of Him." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed

"The success of teachers and healers and leaders lies in their being able and willing to bear witness to the Christ ideas active in the consciousness of those whom the Father draws to them, and not in their telling what they personally can do or have done." Myrtle Fillmore, Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters

"Be still and witness the salvation of the Lord. You doubtless fully know that this stillness in the secret place of the Most High is not mental torpor, but a quiet tranquillity that holds itself in an equipoise of spiritual security." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 
"He told them of the Comforter which should be in them and which should teach them all things, revealing the 'deep things of God' to them and showing them things to come. In other words he told these simple worldly-ignorant men how they might find the kingdom of heaven within themselves, the kingdom of love, of power, of life." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth


"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;" John 14:16

"The doors of heaven open for warriors who rejoice to have a battle like this thrust on them by chance." The Bhagavad-Gita, 2:32

"Now courage without love, generosity without frugality, and leadership by pushing oneself ahead of others are fatal. For love wins all battles and is the strongest defense. Heaven gives love to save and protect." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 67

We have glimpsed the possibility for living in Heaven and we find that we still have elements of our consciousness that require cleansing and purifying. We persevere and are filled with a realization of peace, wholeness and abundance; we are patient and live in a calm peace of mind and body; we forgive, releasing all who have harmed us in any way and we release our selves. This is the good fight, the battle of the spiritual warrior.

Here and now we are surrounded and enfolded in the light and the love of God; we are open and receptive to the infinite, eternal, unlimited presence and power that God is and we are full filled; we send out an awareness of this presence and power of light and love to all those with whom we pray. We fill the whole world with peace, wholeness and abundance.

Please remember to affirm with us, "I am a radiating center of God light and love; mighty to attract my good and to radiate good to others!."

“the voice I heard
was like the sound of harpers playing on their harps,
and they sing a new song before the throne
"

Revelation 14: 2,3


"This group is comprised of any and all individuals who are wholly dedicated in their way of thinking and behavior to living the life of Truth and thus are worthy to stand before the throne." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"As the shining forth of the sun brings out the wealth of meadows, the beauty and fragrance of the rose, or the full corn to the husk, so shall the shining divinity of each of us call forth wealth, peace, health, and love where all had seemed a wilderness of sorrow." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"The essence of your body is good and of true substance. When you sift your consciousness of all but the real and true, the body becomes full of light." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 
"All that is not God is no thing, has no existence -- is simply the nightmare. If we walk on this white line where we refuse to see or acknowledge anything but God, then all else disappears." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth


"The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light;" Matthew 6:22

"I am the great ritual chant, the meter of sacred song, the most sacred month of the year, the spring blooming with flowers." The Bhagavad-Gita, 10:35

"Yield and remain whole. Bend and remain straight. Be low and become filled. Be worn out and become renewed. Have little and receive. Have much and be confused." Lao Tse,Tao te Ching 22

Today we remember to sing a new song of peace, wholeness and abundance. We refrain from thinking, feeling and speaking words of lack or limitation, sickness or dis-ease, conflict or hatred. If we relapse into the old patterns, we quickly remember to affirm a double portion of peace, wholeness and abundance.

In this now moment, we are  surrounded and enfolded by the light and love of God; we are clear channels for God light and love; we radiate God light and love into our world blessing all those around us as we bless our selves.

Please remember to affirm with us, "I am a radiating center of God light and love; mighty to attract my good and to radiate good to others!."

“If any one has an ear, let him hear:
If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes;
if any one slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain.
Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints."

Revelation 13: 9-10


"In this chapter we are being warned in metaphysical terns of the dangers that continue to confront us on the spiritual path... We have to live in the world. Our need is to ensure that we are not of the world," Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"It must be that the old molds of the mortal mind and the ideas that belong to it need to be remodeled, and the remedy is 'Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.'  Keep on praying for faith, because it is through prayer that you develop all your wonderful qualities of soul." Myrtle Fillmore, Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters

"The relative truth is constantly changing, but the absolute Truth endures; and what is true today always was and always will be true." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 
"This matter of trusting the Christ within to do all things for us, realizing that we are one with Him and that to Him is given all power, is not something which comes to any of us spontaneously. It comes by persistent effort on our part. We begin by determining that we will trust Him as our present deliverance, as our health, our riches, our wisdom, our all, and we keep on by a labored effort, until we form a kind of spiritual habit. " H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth


"I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33

"All this universe, deluded by the qualities inherent in nature, fails to know that I am beyond them and unchanging." The Bhagavad-Gita, 7:13

"Those who know others are wise. Those who know themselves are enlightened. Those who overcome others require force. Those who overcome themselves need strength. Those who are content are wealthy. Those who persevere have will power. Those who do not lose their center endure. Those who die but maintain their power live eternally." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 33

Living life on a metaphysical, spiritual, basis requires love, tolerance, patience, and forgiveness for our selves and all others. The world is filled with trials and tribulations and can be a hellish place, "but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." We can choose to live in Heaven now; we can know the infinite, unlimited, eternal goodness of God in this now moment for God is: I am.

We remember to be pure expressions of God's great good today and all ways. We center ourselves in the awareness of the Divine as the source of our being. We keep this awareness foremost as we go through our days. We release any impatient, unloving thoughts or feelings that we may have and remember to for-give. To give love for what ever is received this day.


Please remember to affirm with us, "I am a holy perfect, sinless, child of God shining in the reflection of God Love!."

“...the dragon... pursued the woman..
But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle
that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness,
to the place where she is to be nourished
for a time, and times and half a time."

Revelation 12:13,14


"Here we are told that when we come to the point where we can meditate, enter the silence, and become conscious of these processes within us, then the child or new state of consciousness is lifted up out of the reach of the old state." J. Sig Paulson, Revelation: the Book of Unity

"This statement can be interpreted as a reference to the necessity for working with statements of Truth long enough that they have become thoroughly embedded in the mind." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"Philosophy teaches that all that was ever known exists in the world of ideas. When we are able to rise in to this realm, we shall know all things. But, in order to rise into it we must learn to forget the false sense of the body," Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"Prayer, communion with God within, realization, awakens spiritual consciousness and develops true spiritual character... Pray with persistence and pray with understanding. Be instant in prayer; and never allow anything to keep you from having your daily quiet hour of communion with God, your own indwelling Father." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 
"... certain wrong or false beliefs held by us are really the causes of all sorts of trouble, physical, moral and financial... we can by a persistent effort of the will change our beliefs, and by this means alone, entirely change our troublesome circumstances and bodily conditions." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth


"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied." Matthew 5:6

"Focus your mind on me, let your understanding enter me; then you will dwell in me without doubt," The Bhagavad-Gita, 12:8

"When the wise hear the Way, they practice it diligently. When the mediocre hear of the Way, they doubt it. When the foolish hear of the Way, they laugh out loud. If it were not laughed at, it would not be the Way." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 41

We are awakening to our spiritual consciousness. The old beliefs and habits are falling away. The new is growing within us and bringing a greater level of satisfaction with life and living. We nurture this new life with persistent applications of prayer and meditation in the awareness of this spiritual consciousness growing within us.

Invest your self in a time of being holy (whole.) One with God and one with all of creation through Christ: our infinite power and potential for being, we realize our salvation in consciousness and in manifestation.


Please remember to affirm with us, "I am a holy perfect, sinless, child of God shining in the reflection of God Love!."

“'Now the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Christ have come,

for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down...'"

Revelation 12:10



"The devil is the totality of all the miscreations abroad in the race mind -- the race consciousness of negation that must be reckoned with. The dragon has been 'thrown down to the earth.' Now we face negation in the practical affairs of life. Now the new birth must be proved and we are confronted with the challenge of showing forth our new way of thinking in daily life and in the marketplace." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"We know what is true and what is false, and though we do not have the spiritual strength to expel all our error beliefs and they continue to plague us, we are never again completely duped by them." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed.

"What that revelation did to me at first was not apparent to the senses. But it held my mind up above the negation, and I began to claim my birthright and to act as though I believed myself the child of God, filled with His life." Myrtle Fillmore, Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters 

"To those who hunger after righteousness, this Christ principle is the elixir of eternal life; but those who are wedded to things material would better beware! The race is changing its vibrations to a higher rate, and the higher types of the race must keep the equipoise by unfolding spiritually or they will lose their hold." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 
"Where did the darkness go? It did not go anywhere because it was not; it did not exist. It was simply the lack of something, and when the lack was filled there was no longer any lack. So with all negations, with all that is not good, not light, not love, not health, not wholeness. They are each and every one the absence of the Real, and they are all annihilated or healed by letting in a Something, a real Substance which fills full the vacuum." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth


"You are the light of the world... Let you light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:14,16

"Many forms of sacrifice expand toward the infinite spirit; know that the source of them all is action, and you will be free." The Bhagavad-Gita, 4:33

"Can you embrace the One with your soul, and never depart from the Way?" Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 10

Spiritual growth is a conscious process. Growth means change and change brings about new challenges that we never anticipated. And, we have the tool of consciousness to meet whatever comes up before us to be met. What challenges are we meeting consciously now?

Invest your self in a time of being holy (whole.) One with God and one with all of creation through Christ: our infinite power and potential for being, we realize our salvation in consciousness and in manifestation.

Please remember to affirm with us, "I am a holy perfect, sinless, child of God shining in the reflection of God Love!."

“And a great portent appeared in heaven,
a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth,
in anguish for delivery."

Revelation 12:1-2

"The revelator's spectacular imagery refers to the new state of consciousness that is in the process of being born and to the old state of consciousness waiting to pounce on it... We have come to the point in spiritual consciousness that we are aware of what is happening within us and can see how this process works." J. Sig Paulson, Revelation: the Book of Unity

"Travail has been described as being useful but necessary suffering... when we are seeking to break with an old, ingrained condition and create a new life, necessary suffering must be endured if we are to bring about the desired new condition." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"Then, because the very Spirit of God is in man, I began to wake up, and the Spirit began to illumine my consciousness, and I saw that the life that is in us is the life of God." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"The new race that is now being born on this planet will develop these unused resources of the mind by realization, audible prayer, and thanksgiving and bring to the surface the riches of both the subconscious and the superconscious mind." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind
 
"You think you want better health, more love, a brighter, more cheerful home all your very own. In short you want less evil (or no evil) and more good in your life. This is only God pushing at the inner door of your being saying 'My child, let me in.'" H. Emilie Cady,Lessons in Truth


"Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." Matthew 7:7

"Men of discipline who strive see him present within themselves; but without self-mastery and reason, even those who strive fail to see." The Bhagavad-Gita: 15:11

"To give birth and to nourish, to give birth without taking possession, to act without obligation, to lead without dominating--- this is mystical power." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 10

We are in the process of giving birth to a new reality! Our lives, our bodies, our world, are growing and unfolding in divine order and divine timing. With growth comes travail: growth pains. Are we conscious of this growth within us and are we embracing the useful, necessary, suffering we are experiencing?

We now breathe into our minds, our hearts, our bodies, the conscious awareness of God life, love and power active in every thought, feeling and bodily sensation. We release the pain, the suffering, whatever dis-ease we may be experiencing. We acknowledge the activity of God in every cell of our being, every thought, every feeling, and we are cleansed and made whole, shining in the reflection of God love.

Please remember to affirm with us, "God is my life, I live God; God life, love and power are active within me now; I am a new creation blessing my world with peace, wholeness and abundance!."

“'Rise and measure the temple of God
and the altar and those who worship there,
but do not measure the court outside the temple;
leave that out...'
"

Revelation 11:1-2

"We have no difficulty in identifying the temple of God and the altar as being the mind of the individual when in spiritual consciousness... we are to devote our full attention to ensuring that the things we desire are in line with our spiritual goals, and that we use spiritual methods to attain these desires." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"Things are sometimes measured to find out not their size, but their true value... Those who are in the process of overcoming realize that... within them are the carnal mind, or the outer, personal self, and the innner or Christ consciousness of Truth," Charles Fillmore,Metaphysical Dictionary

"This inner world is the subjective, the real world, the intelligible world... Good sits enthroned there; Love sits enthroned there; Life sits enthroned there." Myrtle Fillmore,How to Let God Help You

 

"In order that we may hear this inner voice and may receive this highest form of teaching, which alone can open the eyes of our spiritual understanding, the mortal self must cease its clamoring even for Truth; the human intellect must become absolutely still, forgetting to argue or discuss." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth


"‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get." Matthew 7:1-2

"Without pride or delusion, the fault of attachment overcome, intent on the self within, their desires extinguished, freed from dualities, from joy and suffering, undeluded men reach that realm beyond change." The Bhagavad-Gita: 15:5

"The five colors blind the eyes; the five musical tones deafen the ears; the five flavors dull the taste. Racing and hunting madden the mind. Precious goods keep their owners on guard. Therefore the wise satisfy the inner self rather than external senses. They accept the one and reject the other." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 12

Relinquishing our attachment to outer people, places and things; cultivating our inner world, the spiritual world: God's temple, the altar and our soul thoughts and feelings that worship there; we experience what is real and true: God, good. love, life!

We release our desire for all the outer appearances that we believed were real. We open our minds to experience the infinite, unlimited, eternal existence which we call God, the Goodly One, the One Reality. We allow God's presence and power to be revealed in and through and as us. We are healed and made whole, in harmony with all that is, living an abundant and fulfilling existence.

Please affirm with us, "I am open, receptive and responsive to God's infinite spirit of love expressing in and through and as me!."

“And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it;
it was sweet as honey in my mouth,
but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.
"

Revelation 10:10

"This truly is the fulfilling of the mystery of God, the revealing of the secret of the bittersweet happiness that is God's goodwill for us all." Charles A. Neal, Revelation: The Road to Overcoming

"When the wonders of the spiritual realm are first disclosed to us we are enchanted... Yet when we learn more and discover that truth is contrary to many of our cherished opinions, what was once sweet becomes bitter." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed.

"We are no longer willing to accept the opinions of others... We begin to feel, rightly, that there must be a way of living that will keep us well and happy." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You


"Your mind, body, and affairs are the expression of your thoughts, so if you are not happy, change your mental habits." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind

 

"Denials bring freedom from bondage. And happiness comes when we can effectually deny the power of things to touch or trouble us." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth


"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matthew 6:21

"Mastering their senses, with equanimity toward everything, the reach me, rejoicing in the welfare of all creatures." The Bhagavad-Gita: 12:4

"To know harmony is to be in accord with the eternal. To know the eternal is to be enlightened." Lao Tse, Tao te Ching 55

The "bittersweet happiness" of enlightenment is to know that what we thought was real and would bring us happiness is not real and ultimately brings only pain and sorrow. What is real is God: good orderly direction; Divine Order, Divine Timing and Divine Guidance; unity, oneness, absorption into the infinite, which is true bliss.


We release all that we thought we knew and believed about what is real. We open our minds to experience the infinite, unlimited, eternal existence which we call God, the Good, the One Reality. We allow God's presence and power to be revealed in and through and as us. And we are healed and made whole, in harmony with all that is, living an abundant and fulfilling existence.

Please affirm with us, "I am open, receptive and responsive to God's infinite spirit of love expressing in and through and as me!."
