A Spiritual Philosophy for Modern Living
ESTABLISHING A PARTNERSHIP OF BODY AND SOUL
There are so many thoughts, so many Ideas, about our humanity....
about our Spirituality that I would like to share with you,
To begin with we are fortunate to be living in an Age of expanding knowledge
about both our human-ness and about our Spirituality.
We are most fortunate to be living in a time when most of us can engage in open discussion about our Spiritual views. It is also a time when we are being given new Choices of Ideas.
And many wonder which way should we go as the Planet teeters on the brink of another world wide conflict between and among brothers and sisters of ancient lineage? Many despair of there being a Spiritual Idea that can cope with the unhappy energy, increasingly at work in the lives of people all over the Planet.
The question seems to be resolving itself within at least, three choices....
1-Should we all adopt the fatalistic humanistic attitude of 'dog eat dog'....the biggest and meanest dog wins and exercises control over the beliefs and actions of those it controls.
2-Should we continue with the organized religions of the day, endorsing the various man-made 'belief systems', continuing to pit one religion against another. Or reinforce the remnants and ritual of older, even ancient religions that have given mankind certain guidance over the ages?
3-Or should we see that religions, current or ancient have barely kept the Idea of God alive on this Planet while continuing to add to the millions and millions of people killed or brutalized, all in the name of variously defined human Gods.
In the Name of God,
the Great Supreme 'I AM' Consciousness and Director of the Universe
isn't it time to put aside old human interpretations that produce nothing but bloodshed and division among God's children and start looking for Spiritual Concepts and Ideals that better describe the 'One Universal Truth and Cosmic Godness' that pervades all Life....
Isn't humanity ready for Ideas and Ideals that present a more
compassionate and productive view of Man and His God....
Isn't it time to be done with 'human control', bloodshed, pain and
ISN'T IT ABOUT TIME TO ASK OURSELVES
'WHAT ONE HUMAN QUALITY IS NEEDED ON EARTH TODAY MORE THAN
ANY OTHER ?' AND WOULD THERE BE ANY DEBATE IF WE ANSWERED
Endless warring appears to be an acceptable 'way of life' for many people all over the Planet....perhaps because in many places in the world the average man or woman has little to say about anything. Or people think they have little responsibility for the killing that defines 'war', however or wherever it exists.
However, today, there are many who wish for and who are praying and decreeing for an end to warring, in any form, among the peoples of the Planet.
And before more bombs and pestilence are let loose on the world, many are voting, instead, for spreading Simple and Compassionate Ideas of Brotherhood, Peace and Freedom among the people and Nations as being the only Road to ending wars.
I would suggest that most religious and political philosophies do not promote, do not come enfolded in enough Christed Energy to encourage either Compassion or Brotherhood. And I ask 'where is the Spiritual Teaching that encourages us or even wants us to find out
WHO WE REALLY ARE, EACH ONE OF US, BODY AND SOUL?'
Where is the Teaching that helps us understand how it has to be that 'under the skin' we are all One Energy....One Consciousness?
Where is the Information that describes the 'Consciousness of each one of us' as a Small 'Spark of Individuated Christed God Energy'? Where is the Spiritual Information that tells the human-us that the Eternal Part of the Partnership of Body and Soul, the Part of us that never dies, is 'a Spark of Christ Light, a 'Spark of Godness' embodied in the human garment?
There is so much lacking in our Understanding of ourselves that it is no wonder that the Idea of Brotherhood is hard to accept. But the question is 'why wouldn't we want to accept it'....except, perhaps, those who 'make a living....who have job security'....by mankind's inability to live peacefully ....whether as individuals, families, or as nations?
But, for those of us who opt for Freedom and for Peace, it becomes a question of how to upgrade and improve what is good in our personal and national lives, while eliminating or changing what is not. And do it while keeping 'our eye' focused on God's Divine Plan for mankind and on our own 'Transcendent Goal of attaining Christed Soul hood'....which can only flower in a Climate of Freedom and Peace, a climate which has to begin within us.
'Christhood' only flowers as we care about 'God' and all of God's People.
Looking back, we can see that in the past, if we have been 'religious' within a particular philosophy, we have been encouraged or forced to assign more or less complete responsibility for the direction of our lives, physical and Spiritual, to ecclesiastical authority....we, then, often having little choice or in other cases, taking little human responsibility, Body or Soul, for our actions, praying to 'God in His Heaven' to take care of us, and then blaming 'God' when we felt we weren't taken care of.
Now in today's climate of increasing Spirituality, we breathe in Energy that vibrates to a Higher Plan. And the Evolving Plan stresses that we participate more actively in our own adventure....that we take control of our Energy, Body and Soul and develop a personal relationship with that God Who is not only in His Heaven, but also placed within us a Spark of His Essence.
Modern Spiritual Thinking speaks of the 'Three-fold Flame of Godness' anchored within the physical body, which connects us, the Soul, directly to the next Higher Vibrational level of ourselves. This is our Holy Christ Self. This Christ Consciousness or Three-fold Mind of God defines the
THAT IS WHO WE REALLY ARE, AN IMMORTAL SOUL....
AN IMMORTAL BIT OF GODNESS....
Part of and connected to all Greater Godness within the Universe.
This New Teaching speaks of expanding that 'Soul Flame' anchored in the heart of our physical self, giving It Recognition....giving It a Voice, a Place in our Lives. In this way we, Body and Soul can connect more powerfully with the 'Greater Godness of the Universe', absorbing and expanding that Light of God.
And at last, we have more God-Power to solve, not only our personal physical 'problems' through raising our 'Perception of Godness' within these physical lives, but we have absorbed and accepted more of That Greater Power with which to solve the problems of humanity.
'When 'I AM' raised up, I raise everything and every one
and increase the 'Perception of personal and Universal Godness'.
Even now many of us are working to expand the Light, the 'Godness' within our lives as well as within the Life of the Nations we live in. And ending once and for all time, the seemingly unending conflicts on this planet, conflicts that were never supposed to have been here in the first place.
Even now we are learning about our 'Indwelling Christ Power', learning to protect the 'Purity of that Power'...learning to take responsibility for our own thoughts, feelings, actions and spoken words. Finally accepting what we can see with our own eyes, are the disastrous results of living any other way.
We are learning that in much of the 'blind faith' of the past, there has been no answer to the question of Peace or Freedom....that most of the old 'blind faith' leaves out the element of Spiritual Understanding and Realization of our True Identity....old blind faith fails to explain
WHO WE REALLY ARE AND WHAT OUR COSMIC NATURE AND PURPOSE IS,
ruling out growth, Body or Soul.
So for thousands of years, mankind has taken simple Cosmic Ideas and, not understanding them, or wanting to complicate them....has invented human ideas about Them...thus making the human being important. And, eventually we, the human being lost track of our True Purpose. And ever since mankind has sought to justify human existence within very limited human understanding.
But now we are being asked to Awaken to our Greater Reality, to awaken to a more profound Sense of our Spiritual Purpose....asked to give recognition to the HUMAN/SOUL PARTNERSHIP.
We are being asked to accept the Leadership of our Indwelling Christ Mind in the Person of our God Soul, the Representative of our I AM Presence on earth.
Finally, Body and Soul we are beginning to understand that no
matter who we are in our human personalities, SPIRITUALLY, EACH
ONE OF US IS A SPECIAL 'BIT OF 'I AM GODNESS', A CHRISTED SOUL,
WHO HAS COSMIC WORK TO DO HERE AND NOW,
So, this Web Site is dedicated to the Proposition that
WHO WE REALLY ARE IS A SPARK OF INFINITE,
AND EVER EVOLVING AND EXPANDING
'I AM GODNESS'.
THAT WE ARE MINIATURES OF THAT 'GREATEST I AM GODNESS '
AND THAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF AND INTENDED TO CREATE AFTER THE
OUR 'I AM FATHER/MOTHER' GOD.
THAT WE NOW MATRICULATE ON EARTH IN WHATEVER HUMAN FORM
WE HAVE CHOSEN.
AND THAT WE BECOME, 'BODY AND SOUL', WHAT WE
DECREE FOR OURSELVES TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE
BY OUR THOUGHTS, FEELINGS AND ACTIONS.
THAT THE FUTURE SPREADS OUT BEFORE US IN
GLORIOUS TECHNICOLOR AND ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES.
AND THAT WE HAVE BUT TO BEGIN TO
GLOW AND FLOW WITH OUR OWN 'SPECIAL UNIQUE SOUL ESSENCE'.
AND ALL ELSE IS ADDED UNTO!
