July 29, 2020 - "QUICKENED OF SPIRIT!"

“The Divine Spirit does not reside in any
except the joyful heart”

  —  The Talmud

“Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is ended.” Revelation 15:1
 
"When one is quickened of Spirit, one's true thoughts are set to work and the subconscious states of error are broken up and dissolved." Charles Fillmore, Atom Smashing Power of Mind 76

"The Creator laid down a law as fundamental as the law of gravity: no one is forced to evolve; only those who choose to inherit the powers of creation will do so. The Law of Freedom is inherent in the nature of reality."  Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Revelation: Our Crisis is a Birth 190

"Hatred and kindness, taking and giving, correction and instruction, life and death, these eight things are tools of reform. However, only the one who abides by the great change and who does not stand in its way can use them." The Book of Chuang Tzu, Martin Palmer, et. al. 123-4

 
"To be truly healed and quickened by the life more abundant, one must forget the past, and the limitations of the past, and offer every thought, every ounce of energy to Spirit, to be used in bringing God's kingdom of light and love and order and beauty and health into the earth, into the lives of all people." Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters 53

"John perceives now within the soul of Man, or that known as the collective unconscious, the souls of individual men are purified and tested on seven levels of consciousness." Edgar Cayce, The Revelation: A Commentary 189

"To obtain satori (enlightenment), one must let go of the ego. To receive everything, one must open one's hands and give."  Taisen Deshimaru, Zen To Go, Jon Winokur 119

"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. While life itself is ever presenting opportunities for growth and development, we are not cognizant of this until the soul is quickened." Elizabeth Sand Turner, Be Ye Transformed, 251

“The first act of awe, when man was struck with the beauty or wonder of Nature, was the first spiritual experience.” Henryk Skolimowski

"After this I looked, and the temple of the tent of witness in heaven was opened,...” Revelation 15:5

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

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. 

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: “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!

“Sense perceptions can be and often are false and deceptive, however real they may appear to us. Where there is realization outside the senses, it is infallible.

"Another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to the one who sat on the cloud, 'Use your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.'” Revelation 14:15

"Is there some hidden cause that makes things as they are, whether they wish or not? Or is it just that everything moves and turns because it has no choice?" The Book of Chuang Tzu, Martin Palmer, et. al. 117

"In reality God is working out through His offspring that which He has conceived to be the ideal creation and life. But He has given us the power that He is, just as any wise father gives his son full freedom to become the son he feels sure that son will be." Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters 109
