I Pray All Is Well With Everyone…And Your Hearts And Minds Are Full Of Love, Joy, And Compassion…For Everyone, Everywhere…All Over The World! And If That Be Sincere And True For Each And Every One Of Us…Then Those Higher Qualities Will Naturally Radiate From Our Beings – The Spirit Of Love And Light Dominating Every Thought And Action Of Our Existence! However…If It Be Not True, And Many Claim Falsely…Then Just As Well Will A Deceptive Spirit Reveal One’s Corrupted Character In Every Thought And Action Of Their Existence! This Is Certain In All Aspects Of Life…Be It Personal, Professional, Social – Or Governmental – As Is Constantly Proven In This Country And The World…OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! The Sincere Individuals Filled With Love, Joy, And Compassion For Everyone…Will Come To Experience An Expansion Of Love, Light, And Consciousness Beyond Their Own Comprehension…Representing Their Own “Mighty I AM Presence” – For The Benefit Of Themselves And The Collective; While The Deceptive Spirits – Those Ones Exhibiting A Lack Of Those Higher Qualities For Any Of The Children Of The Living God, But Yet Claim Otherwise; And Instead Choose The Darkness Of Hate, Immorality, Injustice, And Corruption…Will Come To Rue The Day That They Misrepresented Their Life Stream – Their “Mighty I AM Presence”! Amen…
Give Thanks And Praises For Love And Life…
And Y’all Be Love…
“This is the Spirit of Infinite Wisdom, and in the degree that we open ourselves to it does the highest wisdom manifest itself to and through us. We can in this way go to the very heart of the universe itself and find the mysteries hidden to the majority of mankind,—hidden to them, though not hidden of themselves.
In order for the highest wisdom and insight we must have absolute confidence in the Divine guiding us, but not through the channel of some one else. And why should we go to another for knowledge and wisdom? With God is no respect of persons. Why should we seek these things second hand? Why should we thus stultify our own innate powers? Why should we not go direct to the Infinite Source itself? “If any man lack wisdom let him ask of God.” “Before they call I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”
When we thus go directly to the Infinite Source itself we are no longer slaves to personalities, institutions, or books. We should always keep ourselves open to suggestions of truth from these agencies. We should always regard them as agencies, however, and never as sources. We should never recognize them as masters, but simply as teachers.
With Browning, we must recognize the great fact that “Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise from outward things, whate’er you may believe. There is an inmost centre in us all, where truth abides in fullness.”
There is no more important injunction in all the world, nor one with a deeper interior meaning, than “To thine own self be true.” In other words, be true to your own soul, for it is through your own soul that the voice of God speaks to you.
This is the interior guide. This is the light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world. This is conscience. This is intuition. This is the voice of the higher self, the voice of the soul, the voice of God. ” Thou shalt hear a voice behind thee, saying: This is the way, walk ye in it.”
When Elijah was on the mountain it was after the various physical commotions and manifestations that he heard the “still, small voice,” the voice of his own soul, through which the Infinite God was speaking. If we will but follow this voice of intuition, it will speak ever more clearly and more plainly, until by and by it will be absolute and unerring in its guidance.
The great trouble with us is that we do not listen to and do not follow this voice within our own souls, and so we become as a house divided against itself. We are pulled this way and that, and we are never certain of anything.
But some one says, “May it not be dangerous for us to act always upon our intuitions? Suppose we should have an intuition to do harm to some one? “
We need not be afraid of this, however, for the voice of the soul, this voice of God speaking through the soul, will never direct one to do harm to another, nor to do anything that is not in accordance with the highest standards of right, and truth, and justice. And if you at any time have a prompting of this kind, know that it is not the voice of intuition; it is some characteristic of your lower self that is prompting you.
Reason is not to be set aside, but it is to be continually illumined by this higher spiritual perception, and in the degree that it is thus illumined will it become an agent of light and power.
When one becomes thoroughly individualized he enters into the realm of all knowledge and wisdom; and to be individualized is to recognize no power outside of the Infinite Power that is back of all.
When one recognizes this great fact and opens himself to this Spirit of Infinite Wisdom, he then enters upon the road to the true education, and mysteries that before were closed now reveal themselves to him. This must indeed be the foundation of all true education, this evolving from within, this evolving of what has been involved by the Infinite Power.
All things that it is valuable for us to know will come to us if we will but open ourselves to the voice of this Infinite Spirit. It is thus that we become seers and have the power of seeing into the very heart of things.
There are no new stars, there are no new laws or forces, but we can so open ourselves to this Spirit of Infinite Wisdom that we can discover and recognize those that have not been known before; and in this way they become new to us. When in this way we come into a knowledge of truth we no longer need facts that are continually changing. We can then enter into the quiet of our own interior selves. We can open the window and look out, and thus gather the facts as we choose. This is true wisdom.
“Wisdom is the knowledge of God.” Wisdom comes by intuition. It far transcends knowledge. Great knowledge, knowledge of many things, may be had by virtue simply of a very retentive memory. It comes by tuition. But wisdom far transcends knowledge, in that knowledge is a mere incident of this deeper wisdom.
All about us we see men in the religious world, in the world of science, in the political, in the social world, who through intellectual pride are so wrapped in their own conceits and prejudices that larger and later revelations of truth can find no entrance to them; and instead of growing and expanding, they are becoming dwarfed and stunted, and still more incapable of receiving truth.
Instead of actively aiding in the progress of the world, they are as so many dead sticks in the way that would retard the wheels of progress. This, however, they can never do. Such always in time get bruised, broken, and left behind, while God’s triumphal car of truth moves steadily onward.
Amusing is the man who voluntarily closes himself to truth because, forsooth, it does not come through conventional, or orthodox, or heretofore accepted channels; or because it may not be in full accord with, or possibly may be opposed to, established usages or beliefs. On the contrary:
“Let there be many windows in your soul, that all the glory of the universe may beautify it. Not the narrow pane of one poor creed can catch the radiant rays that shine from countless sources. Tear away the blinds of superstition: let the light pour through fair windows, broad as truth itself and high as heaven. Tune your ear to all the worldless music of the stars and to the voice of nature, and your heart shall turn to truth and goodness as the plant turns to the sun. A thousand unseen hands reach down to help you to their peace-crowned heights, and all the forces of the firmament shall fortify your strength. Be not afraid to thrust aside half-truths and grasp the whole.”” (In Tune With the Infinite, by Ralph Waldo Trine, 1910)
