See God in All

2 Apr

 

I will tell you something. The great Masters of wisdom, such as Morya and Saint Germain and the others, seldom—I say, seldom—appear to students of the light and hardly at all to the masses, because they are aware of the law of karma governing these appearances and most of the students are not.

If you gaze upon the face of any of your contemporaries and you do not see God there, you have desecrated their temple and your own. Did you ever stop to think about that?

If you do not see God in man and in yourself, you are desecrating the temple of the living God. And, as you go up the ladder of attainment, if you take the name of Jesus Christ in vain and you lightly turn against him or against Master Morya or Mother Mary or any of the great ones, named or unnamed, your karma becomes great.

This is the reason behind the Masters’ withdrawal from the appearance world. They withdraw solely because they do not wish to involve you in a karmic sequence, for they know that if you see one of them and reject them or refuse to do what they say, it becomes an even greater karma. Do you see the point?

So they withdraw from the earth, from the visible realm into the spiritual realm. “And a cloud received him out of their sight.” So it is with everyone who is raised from the dead. Do you see, then, what a great deal of depth there is in the teachings, in the banner of Maitreya, the banner of hope, in the banner of the ages?

When people come to hear the Great White Brotherhood’s teachings, they come to see a man. Yet there is far more than the mere man in the teachings; there is the making of the whole man that is you, every one of you. The greatest desecration in all of life is that we do not permit ourselves to properly esteem or love ourselves as the handiwork of God.

“Until Seventy Times Seven”

We are the handiwork of God. Because we dropped a few stitches here and there, the garment may appear to have nubs or holes or be imperfectly woven. This is not so, because in the crucible of experience, in the molding and making of a man, his experiences are practical ones. When they happen to us, we are able to understand what has happened to others. If they had never happened to us, we might not be able to understand another’s reaction.

I do not say that we should do evil that good may come. That is wrong. But in the course of our struggle toward the light, in trying to reach God, if we should make a few mistakes, we ought to allow it in ourselves and in others.

This question was raised, you know, when the Master Jesus was on earth. The apostles asked, because they had a sense of self-righteousness too, “How oft shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Seven times, Master?”

They thought that seven was the magic number. Jesus turned to them and said, “I say not unto thee until seven times, but until seventy times seven,” showing the infinity of forgiveness toward us and toward others.

The road to a certain place is no doubt paved with the best of intentions, so that we all from time to time may find ourselves in a lesser state than we would want. No matter how badly we want to attain the kingdom of God within us, it may not materialize just the way we wanted, and oh, we wanted it to be so perfect! It is so perfect, but somehow everyone else seems to realize a little bit more of it than we do.

You Need the Master

So we think in terms of meeting the master. That is, we equate meeting the master with overcoming all things. Well, you see, when you meet the master, you meet him because you need help. That’s the whole thing. A lot of people think that they’re going to meet the master because they’re so perfect, but you meet the master because you need the master.

This excerpt from the lecture, Meeting Your Inner Master, by Mark Prophet was given on December 31, 1971, at the Class of the Solar Light, held in Colorado Springs, Colorado and published in the 2000 Pearls of Wisdom Vol. 43 No. 28. thesummitlighthouse.org

The Science of the Spoken Word: Advanced Prayer

26 Nov

Advanced Prayer

The Science of the Spoken Word is the flagship spiritual practice taught by the masters via The Summit Lighthouse. It is an ancient science, practiced in the temples of Lemuria and Atlantis as well as in religious and mystery school traditions.

The Science of the Spoken Word could be considered the “big sister” of prayer. Prayer is a form of supplication to the Godhead. Practitioners of the Science of the Spoken Word primarily use an advanced form of prayer called “decrees.” A definition of “decree”:

Decree (n.): a foreordaining will, an edict or fiat, a foreordaining of events. To decree (vb.): to decide, to declare, to command or enjoin; to determine or order; to ordain.
The decree is the most powerful of all applications to the Godhead. It is the command of the sona or daughter of God made in the name of the I AM Presence and the Christ for the will of the Almighty to come into manifestation as above, so below. It is the means whereby the kingdom of God becomes a reality here and now through the power of the spoken Word. It may be short or long and usually is marked by a formal preamble and a closing, or acceptance.[1]

Decrees come in many types and forms. There are decrees for each of the seven rays, the secret rays and the ruby ray. Decree content ranges from making contact with one’s divine self to invoking God’s will in politics, ecology, education and the economy. A specific subset is that of judgment decrees, as explained in the previous unit.

Many decrees were dictated by the ascended hosts, directly to the messengers or in dictations. In those types of decrees, the master places certain thought patterns and keys to his causal body in the decree that invoke a response from him when it is given by a student.

Following the preamble of a decree, students pause to make personal spoken calls to the master or masters to whom the decree is addressed. These calls, like the decree itself, are given in the name of the student’s I AM Presence and Christ Self, with a request to adjust the directives given by the students to the will of God. This step assures that decreeing does not become karma-making by trying to impose one’s human will on specific situations.

When properly practiced, this science of decreeing truly makes the student an effective co-worker of the Great White Brotherhood.

Multiplication Factors

Decrees are usually given in sets of three. The repetition intensifies and amplifies the action. In decree sessions, decrees are often given 36, 40 or even 144 times to make maximum use of this strengthening of the sound wave that is being created.

Decrees may be given by oneself or in a group. In a group setting, the power of decrees is squared by the number of people present. A decree given by one person has the power of one. Given by nine people, it has the power of 81.

The ascended masters have released a number of dispensations that further multiply the effect of decrees. For instance, every decree uttered is automatically multiplied by the ascended hosts by the power of 10,000 times 10,000. This means that one decree spoken once by a devotee may benefit one hundred million people.

Specific masters have offered other dispensations. For instance, the Ascended Master Omri Tas has committed to multiplying every recitation of 15 minutes of solid violet flame decrees by the power of ten.

These multiplication factors explain why, though student numbers are relatively small compared to the world population, the ascended masters can bring about tremendous change through their students’ practice of this science.

Resources

SSW cover

The Science of the Spoken Word is a vast, comprehensive science.  For an in-depth study of the science of decreeing, see the book The Science of the Spoken Word by Mark and Elizabeth Prophet.

Decrees themselves may be found in the Summit Lighthouse decree book (Prayers, Meditations and Dynamic Decrees for Personal and World Transformation), as well as in smaller decree booklets released over the years. Numerous CDs and downloadable decrees are available from the Summit Lighthouse bookstore, ranging from beginner to advanced decrees.

Forgive Yourself and Create Abundance

6 Sep

Self-forgiveness is a great birth.

…It is the state of being that arises

from our willingness to accept, with-

out judgement, all of who are, our

seeming shortcomings as well as

our innate glory.

-Robin Casarjian

I have met people now and then who say, “I just can’t forgive myself for this terrible thing I did.”   They’ll even say, “I know God has forgiven me.  But I just can’t forgive myself.”  If you feel you have done something unforgivable or you have misused another’s funds or spent fund unwisely, please don’t hesitate to turn to God for forgiveness and be willing to set things right.

When we cannot ask for forgiveness or receive it, in reality that means we are too proud to accept a gift from God.  We want to do it all on our own, But, in fact, we all need God.

Perhaps you acted selfishly or out of a desire for material things that you really didn’t need.  It doesn’t matter.  Don’t walk around with a sense of guilt, thinking “I am in debt. Woe is me because I have bought these things that I don’t need.  I’ve invested unwisely. I’ve wasted money God gave me.  Now look at the mess I’ve made of my life.”  Whatever mess you may have made of your finances, accept God’s forgiveness, affirm the worthiness of God, and affirm yourself as the mirror image of God.

Affirmation:

In the name of my I AM Presence,

I claim the worthiness of God, and

myself as the mirror image of God!

Remember, you are made in the image and likeness of God.  Your soul is meant to be a giant mirror of God.   Keep the mirror polished.  Look in the mirror and see God’s face smiling at you—and return that smile.  Every time something threatens to cloud the mirror–you feel a sense of injustice, you become annoyed, something unexpectedly pops up out of your unconscious–keep on polishing the mirror so you can be a more perfect reflection of God.

Speak to any force, within or without, that nags at you and tries to put you down and say:  “My God has forgiven me.  I accept that forgiveness and I forgive myself.  I am so grateful God has given me another opportunity that I will forgive all the wrongs that anyone has ever done to me or will ever do to me!”

Affirmation:

I AM forgiveness acting here,

Casting out all doubt and fear,

Setting men forever free

With wings of cosmic victory.

I AM calling in full power

For forgiveness every hour;

To all life in every place

I flood forth forgiving grace. (3x)

Creative Abundance

4 Sep

creative abundance001

Abundance is more than money.  Abundance is the flow of energy that comes to us from the universal source of life as both spiritual and material prosperity.  Abundance is love and Wisdom, talents and virtues, money and material goods–whatever we need to fulfill our life’s purpose.  Energy should be flowing freely to us and through us to materialize abundance.  If we are not experiencing that flow of abundance, we have to ask ourselves why.

What is it within us or around us that is blocking prosperity?  What is blocking the Flow of God’s energy to us?  Saint Germain, who is an expert in the spiritual and physical transformation known as alchemy, writes:  “How long will you spend your energy struggling to eke out a bare existence from nature’s cupboard, which to some seem bare indeed, when all your needs can be met by mastering the cosmic laws that Jesus and other great teachers have demonstrated by their own love?..With you–as with God–all things are possible.”

 

Be Grateful For Everything that Happens to You

If the only prayer you say in your 

whole life is “thank you,” that would suffice.

-Meister Eckhart

There is an inherent law of mind

that we increase whatever we praise.

The whole of creation responds to praise and it glad.

-Charles Fillmore

Praise God for the joy and beauty of his creation–not the least of which is the beauty of your own soul. Continually thank God for what you are and what you have and you will see how your abundance will increase.

Affirmations:

Let God be magnified! (Ps.70:40)

Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (Ps. 35:27)

Be grateful to God for everything that happens to you.  Everything–the negatives, the positives, the karma, the calamities–because they are teachers, they are lessons.  And if things aren’t going right, praise God for letting them go wrong to remind you that there is some adjustment you have to make in order to get on with your spiritual progress.

We are all on the path of initiation. Earth is a schoolroom, and we are intended to graduate from that schoolroom.  The lessons we learn along life’s way are what propel us from one grade to the next. Yet isn’t it true that we have all faced situations in life where we couldn’t see a single reason why we should praise God?  It is important to realize that anything coming at you–whether it’s Mars or a Mack truck, whether it’s your mother-in-law or your manager–is energy coming your way.  Bless the messenger who delivers that bundle of energy and then take the energy out of the seemingly negative matrix.  Reclaim it and transmute it into something positive.

Don’t wait until you have your full and final victory over life’s challenges to be happy, to rejoice, to give praise and blessings to life.  praising God and being grateful every day is a key to the victory of your soul.

Affirmations:

Lord, I do give thee thanks for the

abundance that is mine.

In the name I AM THAT I AM,

I AM expanding this day all that I have

that is of God–through love, through

praise, through thanksgiving!

Praise God in everyone you meet.  Try and give everyone you meet a positive spin.  Give yourself the assignment to find something wonderful about every person you meet–then tell it to them.  That something may be just what they need to lift them out of the doldrums or to dispel the sense that there is nothing really special about them.  There is something special about everyone, and you can help them see what it is.

“This day, O Lord I will give a positive spin to everyone you send me.”  When you tell that to God, you’re going to have the world beating a path to your doorway, because there are so many people who need that positive spin.  I love all of you who read and contribute to my blog.  You are the light!

Mission Possible

21 Aug

Lifetime after lifetime we have desired to return to the state of love and wholeness that we knew in “Eden.”  Through many ups and downs along the way, we’ve done lots of great things and made tremendous spiritual progress.  Though it takes some effort, paradise can be regained once we understand and apply the knowledge of communing with the I AM Presence.  As Ascended Master El Morya says, “The trek upward is worth the inconvenience!”

chart-of-your-divine-self0011.jpg

As the Aquarian age dawns, there is a great spiritual awakening taking place on earth.  It has been prophesied as an age of freedom, peace and enlightenment, a time of technological progress combined with spiritual development.  It can be a time when the spirit of cooperation becomes the basis of every relationship–cooperation between God and humanity, and between people everywhere.  This age gives us an ideal opportunity to accelerate spirituality and realize our divine mission so that we can unite as a powerful force for planetary healing and change.  This is the time to tune in to our missions and go for it!  However, this may sometimes be easier said than done.

When our souls first descended into matter, our mission were crystal clear.  We knew exactly what we needed to do.  Today that sense of mission may be vague or incomplete.  And the experience of Spirit’s constant presence may have diminished.  Whether conscious of it or not, the soul retains the memory of its mission and its oneness with the Divine.  She remembers a freedom of movement and consciousness not normally experienced in the physical world.

Our souls have been evolving as long as they have been sojourning in the material universe.  When we first descended into matter, we were still very much aware of the Presence of God with us.  As long as we maintained the connection with the I AM Presence, everything was fine.  But after thousands of years of evolution, souls adapted more and more to the denser vibrations of matter.  This resulted in a loss of memory of our origin, our home of light, and of the true nature of ourselves as spiritual beings.  perceptions became clouded, and many lost sight of their source and the mission they came to accomplish.

And so we went forth to be the manifestation of our Father-Mother God, sons and daughters who could put on more and more of those spheres of light which we call God consciousness.  So it is in this God consciousness that we live and move and have our being.  This we must not forget…  As surely as we are here and now; we are still in that (Great) Central Sun.  We are in the beginning and we are in the ending.  We do not have to get anywhere–we have to know who we are now.  This absolute immaculate concept of our identity is the foundation of every quest and pursuit.

-Elizabeth Clare Prophet

Many experiences in the material world serve to reawaken within us the memory of the soul’s calling.  They remind us that there is a sacred purpose to life on earth and a divine mission to accomplish. Some already know their mission and are working to fulfill it.  Others are still searching and seem to be waiting for the true mission to begin.  Often a single lifetime will be devoted to fulfilling only a portion of the mission.

The soul is destined for such a great and noble good…

The soul must always hurry to this goal, that it can by every

available means come to the eternal good that is

God–for it is for that the soul was created

-Meister Eckhart

We are all emissaries of God.  It is our reason for coming to earth.  Each one has a special role to play in serving life, whether it’s doing a particular job or imparting an essential virtue.  We all hold points of light, points of identity as representatives of God.  The key is discovering the meaning of life on earth and our special mission to make contact with our highest spiritual self, the I AM Presence.  We are still connected to our I AM Presence, just as we were when we descended into matter.  Answers to question like “Who am I?”  and “Why was I born?” can be found by meditating on the I AM Presence.

“There is absolutely no limit to what you can know and do if you will but bend the knee before your own God Presence, I AM Presence.  Know, then, that keeping the commandments and obeying the laws of God are prerequisites to your receiving the dispensations of God.  Yet, we shun no one. And we help, to the fullest extend of the laws of God, all who will simply look up to the sun of their I AM Presence and say O God, help me!  This all you need to say.  It is sufficient prayer.  It allows the angels to enter your life and turn things around and set things right and direct you on your course to accomplish the mission that God has anointed you to in this hour.”

-Archangel Raphael

The Creation of Twin Flames

16 Aug

twin_flames_wa

It really is true that we all have a match that was made in heaven!  Our perpetual search for that perfect love here on earth stems from the experience of original wholeness and bliss that we knew with out twin flame in Spirit.  In the beginning, we were created whole–alpha and omega, male and female.  As an aid to understanding, the newly created Spirit-spark, or I AM Presence, can be visualized as a sphere of light, a whirling T’ai Chi containing the same masculine and feminine polarity as the Creator.  The two halves of this whole are twin flames united in Spirit as one.

twin flames creation writing

While still in Spirit, the I AM presence of these twin flames traveled within the Great Central Sun, which is composed of spheres of light containing infinite attributes of God’s consciousness.  As the I AM Presence journeyed through each of these spheres, it gathered around itself skeins of light resembling those of the Great Central Sun.  According to the divine blueprint stamped on its fiery core, the Presence magnetized to itself the divine attributes and virtues that would serve as focuses for the soul’s future initiations in the matter world. The light-energy of these attributes formed the colored rings of the Causal Body, depicted here.

casual body

After the Causal Body was formed, the twin flames separated into two identical spheres, as alpha and omega polarities, for the purpose of moving into matter.  Each consisted of an Individualized I AM Presence surrounded by the Causal Body.

chart-of-your-divine-self0011.jpg

Yet each half of the whole shared the identical divine blueprint that was impressed upon the white fire core of the Spirit-spark when it was first created.  In essence, this is how we were created in Spirit with our twin flames, our “other half.”

Because our twin flames share an identical divine blueprint, they also shared a common mission.  Even though they would later pursue divergent paths of creativity, the electronic patterns of their identity remained the same.  The identity that we began to form with our twin flame as we cycled through the Great central Sun formed the basis for the unique gifts that we now offer to the world.  Thus began the journey of life with the beloved at our side.

Preparing For Mission Planet Earth

14 Aug

Far from being created as exact replicas of one another, each I AM Presence was endowed by the creator with the potential to manifest individuality and creativity.  Each of is was given a special mission as well as everything we would need to succeed in carrying it out.  Here’s how we were individualized for this mission.  While the essence of each I AM Presence is the same, God imprinted upon the fiery core of each one a unique divine blueprint.  This spiritual blueprint can be compared to the pattern that was imprinted on the DNA of our cells when we were conceived by our earthly parents.  Just as this earthly blueprint determined the color of our hair and eyes and whether we would be short or tall, so our spiritual blueprint holds the keys to fulfilling our unique destiny in life.  It contains our divine plan– the purpose of being for which we were created.

This doesn’t mean that our fates are predestined.  God provided the matrix, the pattern.  Once we descended into matter, it would be up to us to fill in the outline using our free will, which God also gave us so that we could be co-creators in the universe.  The masterpieces we produce, the healing arts we practice or the causes of justice we espouse would be entirely up to our individual creativity.

This is one way that God continually transcends himself and expands his identity.  The more we fulfill our inner potential through our own creations, the more the Spirit-matter cosmos expands.  The Father-Mother God gives birth to Spirit-sparks and endows them with the seeds of light and energy that they will need in order to go out and express their individuality.  Anyone who is a parent understands the responsibility and risk inherent in such a venture.  We bring children into the world and give them love and direction, but it is ultimately up to them what they make of themselves when they leave home and go out on their own.

What we are is God’s gift to us.

What we become is our gift to God.

Cosmic Beginnings

13 Aug

What is the purpose of life?  From time immemorial, people have asked this question.  Attempts to answer it have filled volumes of philosophical and theological texts.   The ascended masters have given us invaluable keys to understanding  this cosmic mystery–keys that can open doors to fulfilling our soul’s longing for oneness with spirit.  Understanding our divine origin can give us profound insight into our reason for being.  This knowledge, placed within us when we were formed, can help us to unlock the secrets of our individual destiny.  It also reveals our true nature as spiritual beings with tremendous light-energy at our disposal.

Who hasn’t looked up into the sky on a clear night and wondered at the mysteries of the universe?  It’s easy to feel insignificant in the face of such immensity.  Yet, on the contrary, the heavens hold the secret of the magnitude of our beings.  The ascended masters have given us a beautiful vision of the connectedness of all life and the supreme importance of each individual to the divine whole.

Scientific inquiry alone will not uncover the master plan and our place in it.  While modern science has begun to corroborate certain elements of ancient creation theories–like those of Hinduism and mystical Judaism–we can only begin to unravel the mystery of being by going to the place within us where God dwells.  Here we can discover our unique mission that can help change the world for the better and accelerate our own soul evolution. Both the blueprint for the mission and the light-energy we need to carry it out were placed within us when we were first created.  So the first step to understanding this innate potential is to go back to the source, our divine parents.

billions of life streams

Father-Mother God Gives Birth to Billions of Sons and Daughters!

In the center of the universe lies the hub of all physical-spiritual creation–the Great Central Sun, the principal source of the energy that sustains atoms, cells and man.   Out from this spiritual sun have come solar systems, galaxies and billions of sons and daughters of God.  In this blog, “God” refers not to an anthropomorphic being but to an omnipresent Spirit of light, love and power that pervades the universe and is the source of all life.  Spirit is the masculine polarity of the Godhead.  In order for creation to occur, the feminine polarity must also be present.  Therefore the Creator is of necessity, both Father and Mother.  And so our divine parents are referred to as the Father-Mother God.

In the beginning, God sounded the Word that sparked creation.  When he said, “Let there be light,” and there was light, the Father-Mother God expanded the light by giving birth to individual Spirit-sparks.  each of these sparks was an exact replica of the energy of God’s being.  This energy is in perfect polarity–plus and minus, yin and yang, masculine and feminine, alpha and omega.  This is how we were created in the beginning as pure energy in the image and likeness of God.  By creating us, God could multiply his love and light.

chart-of-your-divine-self0011.jpg

Another name for the Spirit-spark is the I AM Presence.  This is derived from the sacred name of God that was given to Moses out of the burning bush on Mount Sinai.  When Moses asked God what his name was so that he could tell the people of Israel, God answered, “I AM THAT I AM”  And so the Presence of God that was individualized for each of us is the same essence as the great I AM THAT I AM that is God.  Our I AM Presence is an energy field of God consciousness that hovers above us and nourishes our bodies, minds and souls.  It is fed by the light from the Great Central Sun.

“We are one” is a common phrase among brothers and sisters of light around the world.  In reality, this is precisely the case.  The I AM Presence of each one of us connects us to each other and to God.  Although God has multiplied his Presence billions of times over, he is still one undivided whole.  Since each of us bears an individual portion of God, so we are all united in that one Spirit.  Thus a web of light is woven between all people of light on earth.  Truly, we are never really alone, but part of the one manifestation of the Divine.

The I AM Presence that was with us at our creation is still with us–even though it may not always feel like it.  Our dense bodies are a far cry from the lightness of Spirit we experienced in the beginning. Because we have become so accustomed to the material existence, we often forget that we are enormously powerful spiritual beings living in these physical bodies.  What was once an effortless, natural state of being now takes work to even approximate.  One way to experience this lightness of Spirit is to sound the AUM.

The Capacity to Love

12 Jul

Alchemy of the heart book

When you get right down to it, there is nothing more important than increasing our capacity to love.  A disciple once asked Gautama Buddha, “Would it be true to say a part of our training is for the development of love and compassion?”  The Buddha replied, “No, it would not be true to say this.  It would be true to say that the whole of our training is for the development of love and compassion.”  The apostle John said essentially the same thing in his beautiful exposition on love:  “This is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another…He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”  If God is love and we were made in the image and likeness of God, as both Genesis and scriptures of the East tell us, then at our very core we too are love.  God created the universe so that we–and he–could experience more of the wonders of that love.

That is why most, if not all, of the critical issues in our life revolve around the innate need to give love and to receive love.  When we lament the lack of appreciation or respect or even self-esteem in our life, what we are really yearning for is love.  When we feel compelled to take those tortuous twists and turns through the labyrinth of life, painful as they may be, its because we’re trying to recapture the experience of divine love that is native to our soul.

The labyrinth takes us over the high peaks and into the deep chasms of our own inner terrain.  The landscape has been shaped by our karma–the consequences of the choices we have made in the past to love or not to love.  Each time time we come to a Y in the road, we again come face-to-face with the choice–to love or not to love, to open our heart and share our gifts or to shut down and pretend no one is home.  Since the journey is not always easy, at times we take the safer, lower road so we can catch our breath.  And sometimes we never make it back to the high road.  It’s understandable.  Maybe we were deeply hurt in this life or a past life and we don’t want to open our hearts and be rejected again.  Maybe we’re angry with others or even with God for the loss of a loved one.  Or maybe we feel guilty about our own shortcomings and have convinced ourselves that we don’t deserve to be loved.

In some cases, we unconsciously wall ourselves off.   We retreat into the castle of our heart and position layers upon layers of defenses around it so that no one will get too close to us and we won’t get to close to anyone else.  But these defenses keep us insulated from the very thing we crave–an intimate experience of giving and receiving love.  That’s when the universe conspires to wkae us up and get us back on the high road.  Mark L. Prophet, once said, “All experiences on earth are to teach us the meaning of love.  Everything that takes place for the education of the soul…is to teach it the meaning of love.  Because love is the power that shakes the universe and sounds one pure tone that gives to every man the freedom to embrace his own divine presence, his own divine plane.”

If we can embrace this truth–that all our experiences are designed to teach us how to give and receive more love–then suddenly the circumstance of our life make sense.  We are awakened to the need for a higher walk with love.  And the journey into those deep chasms and over those high peaks become a sacred trek.

                                                                                                                                        You knock at the door                                 

of reality, shake you

thought-wings, loosen your

shoulders, and open.

Rumi

How can I open my heart and freely share my love with others?  How can I empower my heart so I can fulfill my reason for being and soothe those who are in pain?   How can I heal my own heart from the pain of the past and expand my capacity to love?  How can I give to others and still find time to nurture myself?  How can I enter my heart to fan the inner fires of love.  How can I become a living transformer of love?

I AM the Light of the Heart

I AM the light of the heart

Shinning in the darkness of being

And Changing all into the golden treasury

Of the mind of Christ.

I AM projecting my love

Out into the world

To erase all error

And to break down all barriers.

I AM the power of infinite love,

Amplifying itself

Until it is victorious,

World without end!
