It is a fact of spiritual life that every time we make an effort to reach God in whatever manner, we are the beneficiaries of the energy of the Holy Spirit.
The amount of radiance we reflect depends on the intensity and sincerity of our effort, the state of our spiritual growth and our capacity to receive the light.
Fr. Maximos from Gifts of the Desert – Kyriacos C. Markides
If I would have given into someone else’s version of God then I would have done nothing to improve my situation. The notion that “if it was meant to be, it will be”, is a pacifying, yet harmful quote, that many spiritualists use to soften the blow of anger.
God is not passive. He is relentless, and He will put in your heart a need for answers. The intensity of what bothers your soul is often his voice trying to take you from the limited vision of mankind to the full view of the best life he would like to offer you.
He is above any pastor, any bishop, any prophet, any church, any cleverly crafted sermon or multi-meaning verse. He is the master of his craft and the author of your forever.
Inner peace is only found through action. Fear may darken the trail, but the light of peace stands at the end of such a journey —-waiting with truth.
To attain true inner freedom, you must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them… Once you’ve made the commitment to free yourself of the scared person inside, you will notice that there is a clear decision point at which your growth takes place.
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
Outer peace can only be manifested through inner peace for what goes on within us will manifest outwardly. It’s important to take some time each day to go within to befriend our inner self.
If you want to tell anything to God, tell it to the wind. Listen to your inner Being. Only in the stillness of the depths of your Soul can you know God. Find the small voice within. Everything you experience is remembered, every answer is found within. Only in the silence can the answers be heard. If you talk to to your angels, the messages are carried directly to God. Voice your prayers out loud to the Universe, choose your words carefully, open your heart, the angels are there. So, continue to talk to my angels, listen to my BEING, engage my inner wisdom, find stillness, affirm, open my heart and trust.
My life is a mirror. Every person in my life is a reflection of some part of me. The people I love reflect the loving aspects of myself. The people I dislike reflect those parts of myself that need healing. Every experience in life is an opportunity for growth and healing. The people in my life are really mirrors of me. This affords me the opportunity to grow and to change.
Louise L. Hay
Sometimes we lose our place, our way.
We lose the vision to see,
the insight to understand,
the voice to speak out for truth,
the will to do what needs to be done.
When we are thus diminished –
and if we have the heart to hear –
our bodies will tell us.
our body’s language
we can move towards
the state of perfect health…
for which we are born.
Life is an extraordinary tapestry. Our needs, wishes and prayers are carefully woven into this tapestry; with each breath and every step we weave the threads. How we choose to incorporate Life’s offerings into our tapestry is always up to us. When we open our hearts and minds to the undeniable support of the Divine Energy at work in every aspect of our lives, miracles do happen. On those occasions when we are in communion with our Divine Souls, even the simplest acts of creation, like the sun rising in the east or a bird sailing in the sky, testify that everyday a miracle is waiting to be born.
Love is energy. It is the supreme energy, the highest power that exists. Love is so supreme, so high, that one refers to it as God. Love is God, but it is also one’s True Nature. It is the centre of our Being for it does not exist apart from us. We, however, have lost our centre. We have acquired the notion that love is to be found outside ourselves, and so we go out searching for that which lies within us. We go begging for that which we already have. We are kings and queens but have mistaken ourselves to be beggars.
The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses.
