In the Silence, by Jack Fowler

In the silence there is peace
In the silence there is unspoken joy
In the silence there’s relief
From a world full of chaos and noise.
So, I wait for these precious moments
When I hear all, that could never be said
And right here in this Holy silence:
I find God…..
I find myself.

Finding Your Spiritual Nature
There are so many ways to understand and find your spiritual-ness: The part of you that is directly associated with ALL There Is. But today, I will speak of only a few. I will share how you can find yourself…the All That Is at any moment during the day.

You may be saying, “I’m looking for something. I want to live a meaningful life. I want to live more spiritually.”

But what does that really mean to you? How could you define it if you had to? In his book, “Start Now! A Book of Soul and Spiritual Exercises,” Rudolph Steiner shares these ideas:

1. Not judging others
2. Being positive all the time
3. Loving everyone
4. Loving yourself

It seems like you can start out doing very well working with these principles, but within an hour or two, some one will make a statement, or do something to tick you off, and you have gone off into hateful mode.

It isn’t really your fault. You are just too ingrained in the worldly experience. I will share with you touch stones you can use everyday. Or something you can use as a focused thought for your meditations. If you use these ideas and exercises as small ways of connecting with spiritual thinking, then you become more Soul-Strong.

  • Right Thinking~~

    For one hour be aware of your thoughts. Recognize how to separate your thoughts into two phases or parts: (1)essential or (2)non-essential; (1)truth from (2)opinion. Try to listen with a discerning ear: don’t allow yourself to agree or be swayed to criticize. Listening becomes a tool to witness, and know what is important and what is nonsense.

  • Right Judgment~~

    Do not make decisions quickly. Take your time to hear every point of view, and see every need involved in the decision. Don’t do something just because it is attractive or exciting, but because you have determined it to be correct and meaningful.

  • Right Word~~

    Don’t jump into a conversation because everyone else is talking. This could open you up to saying something that has no meaning, or worse, has a negative meaning. It is not what you put into your mouth that defiles you, but what comes out of your mouth. Listen to the conversation, do not engage is crosstalk, but evaluate your stand, and only when you feel comfortable with your words and ideas, then speak.

  • Right Deed~~

    Always look at how you act with and for others. Be sure your actions come from the place in your self that is of God. Think of how your actions will affect the outcome of your experience.

  • Right Standpoint~~

    As you live your life, access it by way of nature and the simple order of living. If your stand point is cluttered with confusion and debris, only chaos will result.

  • Right Striving~~

    Only do what is within your power to achieve, but always strive to for the highest good. Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements says: Always do your best.

  • Right Memory~~

    Look at your past experiences (even if done incompletely or in error) as a way to do it better the next time. Always learn from your experience as well as others’ experiences.

    Remember these focus thoughts:
    When you know All That Is, you access all energy, all frequency, all vibration.

    Feel the energy around your body. Imagine how it connects and recognizes what ever is next to it (another person, a table, a chair, the wall). See the energy connect with all other things and people just within your space.

    It is just like that in the whole world. We are secretly all connected. The secret is now out. You are informed and empowered.

    Meditative Thought~~~~
    There is a tendency in human nature to look to the external world for fulfillment. Fulfillment can only be found within. That which is merely external is powerless to satisfy the inner spirit. By reversing the searchlight of your senses, and focusing your attention on that which is Real, you will undergo a permanent shift in consciousness. This will re-qualify your entire experience.

    My life is a living invitation for Divine Source to express! Beaming with joy and love, I am a blessing where ever I go! All my needs are met naturally with ease, grace and dignity! Dynamic, harmonizing energy vitalizes my body temple! I become Divine through my sacred YES! Gratefully I let it be! And so it is.

    Blessings to you all — M

  • Earthquakes, Triangle of Life, and Your Intuition

    Several years ago I posted an article I received as a forward from my sister-in-law. I thought it was interesting about things to do during an earthquake. (If you are interested in the original post, CLICK HERE.) It had to do with the Triangle of Life which is basically leaning up against something like a bed, large table or other structure. It has been construed that it meant to do this instead of drop, cover and hold on. Somehow, this particular blog has gotten a large amount of attention, because of the earthquake in the Philippines recently. And I felt I should address a few things concerning it.

    I always feel that being aware and informed ahead of time is always the best case scenario. Being in the Midwest USA, we were never taught as kids about procedure to address earthquake safety. So the article my sister-in-law, who lives in California (prone to many earthquakes) I thought was important to look into.

    As I investigate earthquakes, one thing becomes very apparent to me: location. By this I mean several things, such as the part of the world the earthquake happens (Japan, Europe, North America, etc.); where is your location in relation to the quake activity (how many miles away, are you at the direct epicenter, etc.); the type of building are you located in (high rise apartment, office skyscraper, country home, barn, etc.) Also, the building codes used for your country, and the level of mismanagement possible during construction. So you begin to see that one situation does not react the same as another.

    Also, looking at the second level in my home, our bed is only six inches off the ground, so there is no way anyone could hide under it. All the tables and bureaus are antiques and there is only an inch or two between the bottom of the furniture and the floor. There literally is no place to hide.

    If an earthquake happened during the night, I would never be able to hide under something, or even have the time or ability to run downstairs and out the door. So my first thought would be the Triangle of Life – to lean against an inside wall or even the bed or dresser. And the only reason I would think of that is because I read the article about it.

    Another point that is so very important here is the awareness of Intuition. I have worked with intuition and psychic gifts for over 30 years. I teach people to have the ability to be aware of their intuition too. The more you honor and use that innate gift that all people have (similar to animals with instinct) then you can intuitively respond in the correct way during any crisis. ( Article: Intuition vs. Instinct ) Being open to your Higher Self – your Spirit Being – through intuition is paramount. The gift is given to us to use in trying times, times when we cannot logically assess situations, such as during earthquakes.

    So, I believe that there are different ways to address safety during an earthquake dependent on your location, and your ability to maneuver, etc. Your intuition will assist you in making those decisions in a split instant, so you can make the most of your circumstance. (For instance, as brought up by a reader to the first post, it does not make sense to run out of an office building in a large metro city, with skyscrapers all around you that have large glass windows. This would make hurling glass shards that might be more dangerous than being inside the building. – but then, you should use your intuitive judgment to make that decision.)

    Through meditation and connecting with your inner self, you will gain the ability to know your circumstance and act accordingly.

    My blessings to you all…M/
