MODERATIONAgain and again the Master would be seen to discourage his disciples from
depending on him, for this would prevent them from contacting the inner Source.
He was often heard to say, "Three things there are that when too close are
harmful, when too far are useless and are best kept at middle distance:
fire, the government and the guru."Anthony de Mello, S.J.MORSEL: The more faithfully you listen to the voice within you, the
better you hear what is sounding outside of you.Dag Hammarskjoldv v v* This is made possible in part by Scott Reeves.Create A Beauty-Full Life, One Day At A Time!
Love, Respect, Cherish and Support 'All' Life!Minister Baba Kundi Ma'at-ShambhalaMeditation for this 2002-05-31"Human beings still need the material, tangible aspect of religion. But the day they endeavor to awaken within them certain subtle centers - those the Hindu philosophy refers to as chakras - they will gain a higher understanding of things, which will allow them to leave behind the external forms. Indeed, these forms will begin to appear far less alive, intense and powerful than what they are living inwardly and they will even reach a point where they no longer need their temples or churches.
The countless religious buildings dotted all over the world have their purpose. Thanks to the fervour of all the faithful who have prayed there over the centuries, the churches and temples are impregnated with a sacred atmosphere. But even the finest basilicas or most splendid cathedrals cannot compare with a human body that has been purified, blessed and has become a true temple. When a human being has made his body a temple and prays in his own temple, the Lord listens and answers his prayers."Omraam Mikhaël AïvanhovEVERYTHING CARRIES A PRICEGood Morning MOTHER-FATHER GODDESS/GOD. Thank YOU for allowing me the honor and privilege of sharing in another Beauty-Filled day of creation, I AM truly blessed.In life everything has a price, that is the Divine Law which is connected to reciprocity which is giving and receiving, the exchange of energy/reaping and sowing. We must be conscious of this Divine law because it is at work all of the time.If we want the best out of life we must give the best to life. The quality of our offering is of the utmost importance, not the quantity. The gift that is given should not gain major focus, the energy (thought, purpose, feeling and intent) behind the gift is of the utmost importance.When we do something for another we should want to do it from our heart. We should feel what we are doing from the very depths of our soul. The motivating energy behind our feelings should and must be Love. That is what makes it a quality offering. We may think that the price some have to pay is to great but that is not so. The greater the price the greater the reward. Example, A lady gives her life for something she believes in and we say it isn't fair because we feel that the price was to great. We believe it served her no good to die for it. We believe she could have done something else and still be alive. We feel that, and say that, because we do not truly understand two very important things.(1) We are Eternal Beings/We are Spirit.(2) The Law of ReciprocityEvery action be it external (giving), or internal (thinking) is guaranteed to receive a corresponding re-action. There must be and always is balance. So from this point in time let us always be conscious of our every action knowing that it will draw back to us a corresponding re-action of like energy and intent, and be assured that it will be multiplied many times over.Minister Baba Kundi Ma'at-ShambhalaCopyright © 2002
