The Eternal Reality / Through Your Child’s Eyes / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Play Preparation) 

To know of the Eternal Reality,
silence your thoughts.

Reality can be perceived
through a clear and peaceful mind.
Deep Meditation and Prayer
enables us
to reveal what is truly
Real.

“. . . when thou Prayest,
enter into thy closet
and when thou has shut thy door,
Pray to thy Father
which is in secret.”

Matthew 6:5-6

Whenever we are thinking,
we are not mentally at the place
where we are thinking.
Our thoughts
take us to another
time and place.

When we confront this
web of illusion
we call Life and living,
we come closer to the boundaries
of Spiritual awareness.
And
we realize more and more
that explanations of the Infinite
cannot be attained using
finite means.

Within the illusion of physical reality,
it is not possible
using its own internal methods and concepts
to fully understand it.
By accessing a higher level of awareness,
beyond the boundaries of
‘physical illusion’,
we escape constraints imposed upon us
by the finite physical World.

           A more complete picture.

You,
like the Infinite from which you came,
are part of an Eternal reality.
And,
like
the Eternal void,
every Child of God
is filled with Infinite Love
and Infinite possibilities.

My Dear Friends,
experience deep meditation
and Prayer
as a profound silence
beyond all words, thoughts, feelings, and sensations
“The still point of the turning World,”
as T. S. Eliot called it.

Philosophers and poets and sages
throughout all of our Human history,
have valued the experience
of being in touch
with the source
of their Consciousness.

        To another time and place.

Those in times passed
gained access to Spiritual Dimensions
by deep meditation and Prayer,
to a perspective beyond the physical.
And,
they attained a more complete picture
of reality.
The Human Being
is an amazing, brilliantly designed
Spiritual Organism,
capable of stunning and amazing feats
of conscious expansion.

Many
attest to the Miracles of Meditation
and Prayer,
and how it has changed
their lives.

“I gotta take a little time,
A little time to think things over.
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older.
Now this mountain I must climb.
Feels like a World upon my shoulders,
And through the clouds I see Love shine.
It keeps me warm as Life grows colder.
In my Life there’s been heartache and pain.
I don’t know if I can face it again.
Can’t stop now,
I’ve traveled so far.

To change this lonely Life
I wanna know what Love is
I want you to show me.”
Mick Jones
play song

To perceive this moment,
be a part of the reality
revealed
through your Love.

Walk in Nature
with your Lord.
Look to the Light.
There you are!
Beautiful.
Your Love is so Beautiful.
It is the Light
that shines in your
Heart.

Goodnight.

See the World through your child’s eyes

When our children talk to us, or present us with challenging behavior, our natural instinct is to dive in and fix problems – or fix our children.

We talk too much, and we become autobiographical.

Everything we say is from our own point of view. Our natural reactions are rarely understanding – yet that is what our children need from us.

If our children are experiencing emotions that are ‘inconvenient’ to us and that may be challenging, the most effective thing we can do is respond to their distress with emotional first-aid.

When we enter a child’s World and empathically reflect their feelings, they regulate their emotions more quickly, they feel safer, and they also understand that what they are experiencing is normal.

When I Don’t Know, Is Knowing / The Art of Now / Important Dates

Image

The answers
to many of Life’s questions
have become so evident,
that they became
obscure.

star

          How near the Truth is.

Some evenings
find us
staring at a Star,
wondering
who we are,
seeking answers from
Afar,
never knowing
how near the Truth is
to where we are.

butterfly-and-red-flfower-b

     More than the most beautiful.

Faith
is not just Believing.
It is without a doubt,
knowing.

 Jesus said to them,
Truly I say to you, if you have Faith,
and do not doubt,
you shall not only do what was done to the fig tree,
but even if you say to this mountain,
‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’
it shall happen.
And all things you ask in prayer,
Believing,
you shall receive.”
– Matthew 21:20–22

Faith,
My Dear Friends,
is beyond believing.
It is not just believing,
but,
when I don’t know,
is knowing.

Faith
is more than
the most beautiful
element of Creation,
it is Creation.
Faith
is what Dreams
may Come.

mt-reflection

     A reflection of His Faith.

Faith
is the Miracle
of knowing.
And Faith
is the Miracle of knowing
that everything is
a Gift,
and that every Gift
is from God.

It is knowing that the Life
gifted to us from God,
is an Act of Faith
in us.

interior-b

Without Faith
nothing,
and no one,
would exist.

Yes,
your existence
is a powerful statement
of Faith.
For Faith
becomes us.
It is us.

Our Faith in God
is a reflection
of His Faith
in His beautiful Creation.

yellow-one-flower-b

Without Faith nothing would exist.

We are so much more,
and in so being,
so much LESS,
than what we perceive ourselves to be.
Philosophers of the past were right,
our senses really do deceive us.

We have been told
our reality is made up of
physical material things
and that our world
is independently existing
and objective.
But quantum physics tell us
is that there is no true
“physicality”
in the Universe.

Atoms are made of focused vorticies
of energy – miniature tornadoes
constantly spinning and vibrating
and popping into and out of existence
billions of times each second.

sun-streaks-good-b

You are not alone in your thoughts and feelings.

If you observed
the composition of an atom
with a very powerful microscope,
you would see a small, invisible
tornado like vortex,
with a number of infinitely small energy vortices.
These make up the structure of the
atom.

And if you focused in much closer
on the structure of the atom,
you would see nothing,
you would observe a physical
void.

The atom has no physical structure.
Which means
that we have no physical structure.
What we think of as physical things
do not have any physical structure!

Atoms (and WE)
are made out of invisible energy,
not matter.

another-galaxy

Thought is real, physical is the Illusion.

The Universe
is not an assembly of physical parts.

Instead, our Universe
comes from a holistic entanglement
of immaterial energy waves.
This discovery stems from the work
of Albert Einstein, Max Planck,
and Werner Heisenberg,
and others.

And what does it mean
that our physical material reality
isn’t really physical at all?

It means,
My Dear Friends,
we are Spiritual Beings,
filled with energy.

And,
as observers,
we are involved with
the Creation of our own
reality.
Our minds
create the illusion
of physical reality.

Everything that exists is Thought.

Physicists now admit
that the Universe is
a “mental” construction
of consciousness.

“The stream of knowledge
is heading toward a non-mechanical reality;
the Universe begins to look
more like a great THOUGHT
than like a great machine.”
Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans

But we have Faith
in the illusion of our
physical being,
rather than
our real Spiritual selves.

“Mind no longer appears
to be an accidental intruder
into the realm of matter,
we ought rather hail it as the creator
and governor of the realm of matter.”

– R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature

Everything that exists
is Thought
in the mind of God.
Everything that is,
will and has ever existed,
is because of the thoughts
in the mind of our Father
in Heaven Above.

beach-and-moon-c

The Universe is a “mental” construction.

Life is much more complex
than we can ever imagine.
Our thoughts are limited
by being confined in a Human body.
We are unable to see
other realms and dimensions
of reality.
We are Spiritual Beings
in sufferance of having
a Human experience.

Everything
is a thought
from the mind of
God.

You,
My Precious Friend,
are not alone
in your thoughts and feelings.
For God is with you,
always.

b

A Flowering Future you have not dreamed of.

My Dear Parents,
place your Faith in God.
And put your Faith
in His Beautiful Creations,
His Blessed Gifts,
His Children
that come through us.

And your Faith
will blossom into the Beauty
of a Flowering Future
you have not dreamed of –
into Children of Faith
empowered by
the Holy Spirit.

rose-on-book

For the greater good of all Mankind.

Yes,
one day your Child grows
and is filled with Faith
and the Love of God,
and yours.

And will your Child
always uphold your Faith?
No.
You had a Human Child.
But remember,
you are Human too.
And Faith and Forgiveness
go hand in hand.
One is the Flower,
the other
the ground
in which it grows.

Without Faith
there is no Vision,
and no common Vision
for the greater good
of all Mankind.

Goodnight

“The function of prayer soren
is not to influence God,
but rather to change the nature
of the one who Prays.”

The Art of Now:
Six Steps to Living in the Moment

by Jay Dixit – Psychology Today

“We’re living in a world
that contributes in a major way
to mental fragmentation, disintegration,
distraction, decoherence,”
– B. Alan Wallace

1. To improve your performance, stop thinking about it (unselfconsciousness).

2. To avoid worrying about the future, focus on the present (savoring).

3. If you want a future with your significant other, inhabit the present (breathe).

4. To make the most of time, lose track of it (flow).

5. If something is bothering you, move toward it rather than away from it (acceptance).

6. Know that you don’t know (engagement).
