September 30, 2020 - "SPIRIT WITHIN!"

"The spirit is the true self.”
  — Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain." Revelation 20:1
 
"The developing soul meets many situations in mind that require superior wisdom to handle. Helps of a limited character may be had from without, but the final and only safe guide is the Spirit within,." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind 111

"...how can the illusion of separation of humanity from God be overcome quickly enough to save the world? The solution is we must realize the union of humanity and God, unmistakably, for all who have eyes to see and ears to hear." Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Revelation: Our Crisis is a Birth 230

"Even in chaos, the ancient ones were centred, for they were one with their generation and followed the paths of simplicity and silence... yin and yang were in harmony... all this was perfect Oneness." The Book of Chuang Tzu, Martin Palmer, et. al. 133-4
 
"Our real source of help in every need is the Holy Spirit within; and as we keep poised in Spirit, we find ways to reach others in Spirit and call out the best in them and to understand them in a wonderful new way." Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters 169

"These conditions, all man-made, are now themselves eliminated and all creatures, mental forms and patterns, not formed by Divine Will are purged."  Edgar Cayce, The Revelation: A Commentary 199

"Once in a while it really hits people that they don't have to experience the world in the way they have been told to." Alan Keightley, Zen To Go, Jon Winokur 127

"Now we have gained a more sustained realization of Christ; we feel His peace more often and for longer periods." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed, 266-7

“I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.” Kahlil Gibran

"Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it; from his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. ” Revelation 20:11

"A year of Revelation and a clear 2020 vision" is the theme for this year. In these unprecedented times we live in, we are presented with an unprecedented opportunity for the realization of a New Heaven.

The sixth vision (chapters 19 & 20) witnesses to the glory of transcending the physical/sensory level of appearances. "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God." We live in balance in all aspects of self.

All parts of our selves come into alignment with the Holy Spirit, the whole spirit of God in action in us. The Christ Mind is actuated, our growth toward conscious awareness of Heaven is opened. We are being prepared for the final overcoming and the realization of our unity with Good Orderly Direction (God).

Written in a code decipherable only by those who are seeking enlightenment, the Book of Revelation is probably the most misunderstood book in the Bible. John first sought to provide words of comfort to the Christians of his day suffering persecutions that good would ultimately prevail. Secondly, and most importantly for us, he was laying out a road map of the spiritual journey for those who truly desire to live in a conscious awareness of Heaven as an ever present reality. 

Couched in symbolic language in order to allow it to pass by his Roman jailers, John provided a metaphysical framework for understanding the Divine in earthly terms; parables, metaphors, analogies and symbolical language paint a picture of an ultimate reality, God & Heaven, that cannot be adequately conveyed by mere words. Metaphysics provides frameworks for understanding the absolute in relative terms.

Thank you for accompanying us on this journey of self-discovery!

Please affirm with us: “The Christ Mind is my mind; I rise above all obstacles to realize Heaven on Earth!"
 
Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God!

For so it is and so it shall be, Amen!

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

"All people and all institutions have been deluded and weakened through following a course of self-gratification."  Edgar Cayce, The Revelation: A Commentary 195

"If your mind is empty it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few." Shunryu Suzuki, Zen To Go, Jon Winokur 125

"The language is poetic, and in a spiritual sense it relates the many realizations that come to mind regarding the futility of giving our loyalty and devotion to earthly things." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed, 259

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Buddha

"Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, 'So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more;'” Revelation 18:21

"A year of Revelation and a clear 2020 vision" is the theme for this year. In these unprecedented times we live in, we are presented with an unprecedented opportunity for the realization of a New Heaven.

Chapters 15 - 18 reveals the fifth of the seven visions: the seven angels with the seven plagues and the seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God are poured out; the judgment on the great harlot (Babylon/Rome); the unreality of the beast is revealed ('is not'); the fall of Babylon (Rome/the confusion of mental/sense consciousness) is reported.

We are nearly victorious in arising above the limitations of sensory experience. The darkness of sense consciousness calls for worry, doubt and fear of the future, guilt, blame and shame for the past. And, with our realization of the unreality of these 'beasts', we are able to rise above and find peace, love and joy living in a conscious awareness of the light of Spirit: the God-Mind; here and now!

Written in a code decipherable only by those who are seeking enlightenment, the Book of Revelation is probably the most misunderstood book in the Bible. John first sought to provide words of comfort to the Christians of his day suffering persecutions that good would ultimately prevail. Secondly, and most importantly for us, he was laying out a road map of the spiritual journey for those who truly desire to live in a conscious awareness of Heaven as an ever present reality. 

Couched in symbolic language in order to allow it to pass by his Roman jailers, John provided a metaphysical framework for understanding the Divine in earthly terms; parables, metaphors, analogies and symbolical language paint a picture of an ultimate reality, God & Heaven, that cannot be adequately conveyed by mere words. Metaphysics provides frameworks for understanding the absolute in relative terms.

Opened in the Realization of our Spiritual Reality, we are ready to express this awareness of peace in the midst of the judgement and the woes.


Thank you for accompanying us on this journey of self-discovery!

Please affirm with us: “The Light of Spirit guides my way; I Am Whole and Complete, just as I am, here and now!"
 
Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God!


For so it is and so it shall be, Amen!

The fourth of seven visions is revealed in chapters 12-14; The woman, the child and the dragon; the lamb and the hundred and forty-four thousand, two beasts, three angels and the reaping of the earth's harvest are the symbols presented in this vision. Our purified soul is prepared to give birth to the Christ level of awareness and, sense consciousness wants to consume this new awareness for its material pleasures. Higher consciousness prevails and expands its awareness of our unlimited potential and reaps (realizes) the blessings of peace, wholeness and abundance.

Written in a code decipherable only by those who are seeking enlightenment, the Book of Revelation is probably the most misunderstood book in the Bible. John first sought to provide words of comfort to the Christians of his day suffering persecutions that good would ultimately prevail. Secondly, and most importantly for us, he was laying out a road map of the spiritual journey for those who truly desire to live in a conscious awareness of Heaven as an ever present reality.

Please affirm with us: “I am Spirit guided in realizing peace, wholeness and abundance in unity!"
 
Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God!

For so it is and so it shall be, Amen!
