Truth

White Eagle: ‘Truth is like a shining jewel that has many facets. Souls who have uncovered truth within themselves do not say: ‘I have the only truth’ but ‘I see the truth through my facet, but truth has many facets along which its rays travel. What is true to me may not be true for my siblings.’. That’s why we need to walk our path of service with tolerance, ready to observe and appreciate the truth that shines through every soul’s facets. At the core of truth lies the discovery that its central pivot is love, tolerance and an understanding that other people have their own truth as much as we have ours. Let these things be the keynotes of your service on the Earth plane.’

Default What Is Hope?

When things go wrong, as they sometime will,
The optimist thinks: ‘They’ll come right again!’,
While the pessimist grumbles: ‘It’ll only get worse!’
And as our thoughts and beliefs create our earthly reality,
Both forecasts duly come true.
Each one nodes sagely: ‘I told you so!’
That’s why when times are hard, positive thinkers
Think: ‘They will get better and become easier again.’
Though it may take time, they invariably do.

From ‘What Is Hope?’

‘Do not believe anything simply because you have heard it, or because it is spoken and rumoured by many, or because it is found written in religious books, or because it emanates from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find after observation and analysis that anything agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to the good and benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it.’ The legend of the Buddha, ca. 563 – 483 BCE.

The figure of the Buddha is a metaphor for human souls in their awakened and enlightened state. His last words to his disciples are the most poignant ones, as valid now as they were then: ‘Go and work out your own salvation, with diligence.’

Default Looking Forward

Looking Forward To The Time When . . .

• Everybody accepts that humankind’s inner Highest Self is more important than its small earthly self and the ego.

• We all realise the significance of our race and our whole world.

• Everybody is aware that we are as much part of God and as God is part of us.

• We all know in our hearts, minds and souls that prejudices are pointless and harmful.

• People’s inner worth is valued rather than their race, creed or colour.

• Because we realise that we are all one with the Universe and each other, there is peace in our world.

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
Because each one of us is special, we are all different.
Refuse to set your goals by what other people think of as important.
You alone and your inner guidance know what is best for you.
To find out what is right or wrong for you, at any given time,
Listen carefully within and follow the advice you receive.
Don’t take for granted the things that are closest to your heart.
Be thankful for them, but refuse to cling to them.
Believing that without them your life would be meaningless is utter folly.
Only the higher and highest aspects of life have lasting and eternal value.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers – live it now.
Refuse to dwell unduly in the past or in the future,
But live consciously one day at a time,
So you can benefit from every single moment of your present lifetime.
No matter what it may bring to you, never give up.
A fragile thread connects us all with each other, and
For as long we have something to give and share with others,
Our earthly existence is worth living.
Things are only over when we stop trying,
So do not be afraid of taking risks.
They are life’s way of teaching us to be brave.

From ‘Life’s Journey’

Did you know that we all view everything that is in our earthly existence somewhat differently from everybody else? There are as many variations as there are souls, including those on the other side of the veil of consciousness that to this day separates our two worlds. This is because every human soul is an individual spark of the Divine and no two of us are exactly alike. No two people have exactly the same Karma, i.e. having gone through the same experiences, or have reached the same evolutionary level. Each one of the twelve Sun signs of the zodiac also reflects a different attitude towards life and all it contains.

It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
So don’t be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit, it’s so easy to quit.
It’s the keeping-your chin-up that’s hard.

It’s easy to cry that you’re beaten – and die;
It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight –
Why that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
All broken and battered and scarred,
Just have one more try – it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.

From: ‘The Quitter’ by Robert W. Service
‘Rhymes of a Rolling Stone’

From ‘Waking Up From The Dark Night Of The Soul’

From this heart, nothing but love.
From these hands, nothing but healing.
From this mouth, nothing but kindness.
From this mind, nothing but silence.

‘Kindness in words creates confidence. In thinking it creates profoundness and in giving it creates love.’ Lao Tzu

‘Words have the power to destroy and heal, and words that are true and kind can make our world a better place.’ The Buddha
