Light is a fascinating subject. My first glimpses,
the first stirrings in my heart, were brought forth
by the receding evening light. I had been told that
meditation was very important, to sit and control
the mind, blank the mind and it didn't seem to
work for me. However, each evening when the sun
began its descent and the shadows danced so
mysteriously, so playfully, there was magic in the
air, a wonderful calmness in my heart, a familiar,
yet new sense of something very sweet, gentle and
joyful. A most majestic weeping willow across the
street faithfully joined me in what became a daily
experience. She gracefully waved her beautiful
arms in agreement, in confirmation of the
authenticity, of the reality and the sacredness of
these moments. There was a sense of being at
home, of belonging, of deep contentment and
gratitude in my heart. It was my "Happy Hour"
cocktail, the Beloved Father generously lavishing
upon His Beloved Child Its Beauty, His Splendor
in a display of Grace and Wonder. This is a
cherished memory that takes on more depth and
meaning as I make my ascent to the mountaintop.
It is so delightful to hear your bird stories! It is
proof that we each are the One and Only Child
being loved in a very special, unique way. Our
names truly are written '...in the palm of His
hand..' Such a love story!
At one point I found puppy dogs in the park to be
the messengers. I observed the happy puppy
wagging its tail and jumping again and again to
kiss his master! It was such a wonderful discovery
for me when I saw that there was no puppy doing
anything but it was Joy and Love appearing as
puppy, etc. etc... The Canada geese are just making
their way south at this time of year and they are
just absolutely spectacular. They fly in such
interesting formations... they are spreading Love
all over the sky and singing their gratitude to their
northern hosts as they make their way, together as
One to their Perfect destination and by golly, they
know where that is...yes, birds are amazing and I
guess even more so when they speak to you in
such a special way.
"Back to the non-intellectualizing Child... " you
say. Hmm, yes the Child is the feeling, loving
Heart, but I dare say the Child is also the
Equation, the Balance and the Heart does not bar
out or exclude the intellect. Isn't there a balancing
act going on there too? I can give heed to the
intellect, in fact I must give the intellect its place
and let it work in co-operation with the Heart to
reach agreement or I might be the childish child
rather than the Child-Child.
William Samuel was a very prolific writer
and he does not offend the intellect...what he says
makes sense... he unravels mysteries to satisfy
science as well as the Heart and that is the most
appealing thing to me. I can follow the Child, yes,
without having to leave the intellect outside.
To Thine Own Self Be True! The rarer the gem the
more precious is the stone. What can be more
precious than this One You are!!! God expressing
as unique, individual being. There is no other to
live the life that is yours. God has given it to you,
to no one else. You are God's precious, shining,
glimmering, one-of-a-kind jewel, a Pearl of Great
Price! Who can think your thoughts; who feels the
Joy, the Peace in your heart; who can speak your
protects your uniqueness. You cannot add
anything to the Perfection you already are. You are
ever living the mystery of Love, Light, Wonder in
every unconditioned, pristine, New moment.
Self-complete, Self-maintained, Self-sustained.
One priceless, unique gem!
The time has come to look in the mirror and see
Self, Beautiful, Powerful, all-inclusive, excluding
nothing and no one...ever expanding and
accepting more of Perfection that includes all the
imperfections....your Self is the " Full Spectrum
Including All!" The Self swims in a great Ocean of
Love, Light, Sweetness, in Allness.
... I can now appreciate and love the incredibly
beautiful Self that is God's expression in this
dimension, on this planet, right here, right now. I
am free to feel my feelings, to enjoy my human
relationships (images of Image), to participate in
all the activities that are given me to do (no
division between physical and spiritual
'all-inclusive')... I have no secrets to keep from
my-self....I am trying to give words to the Heart's
Song that is singing Itself.
The words from William Samuel that gave my
Heart real Hope were from a tape about journal
keeping. He said that I have 'my own Truth' and I
felt the test of this statement immediately when he
said that gone were the days of listening to others,
that only what my Heart responds to is my
Truth...that I have my own message... That rang
True, I felt it in my Heart, my Heart was in
agreement and I wanted to shout "YES, YES"!That
was the starting point. It helped me to know how
to listen to my heart. My heart talks to me in many
wondrous ways but it talks very directly and truly
through feeling. We have been led to deny too
many things, and especially the feelings. I now
cannot appreciate those feelings enough...they are
my Heart telling me True. I had been conditioned
to "be good" and to not feel or to not respect my
feelings Feeling is the key!
Images are the invitation to listen to the Heart.
Our purpose is not to try to change anything. Our
purpose is to understand the world and to love it.
... She has low self-esteem because she does not
know herself. She suffers from mistaken identity.
Self-image is at a low ebb when one identifies with
the ego-self, the little nothingness, powerless
image that is the pseudo-self.
As one begins to examine, to delve into one’s
identity " who am I; what am I..." and so
on…he/she begins to find new dimensions to
his/herself. Once the Heart of being is discovered,
the little self that relies on human belief, human
history, human experience, begins to fade away;
the world of intellectual judgment loses its grip.
This "low self-image" is seen for what it is, an
image, a show of the real Self that is the Truth, the
Reality of being.
The Truth of Being is found in the Heart, the
Heart is the Revelator, the place of Knowing, of
Truth, of Life. Unlock the Heart and you will find
all you ever wanted and more. I discover that God
is Life itself, the Life of me, the Life of everyone
and everything on this planet. God lives my life. I
have no life of my own. Of myself I am nothing.
God is all in all, as all. The Life of the grand elm
Tree, of the rosebud, is the same Life that is God.
The love you feel when the deer visit your front
lawn, the beauty, the "ahhhhh" feeling when you
look at the stars or sit by a bonfire, the love you
feel when you hear a baby laugh,are all coming
from this Child/Heart of God. And this is so for all
those considered to be your friends as well as your
I had better start paying attention. Do I want to be
throwing bombs at the Child/Heart of God? Do I
want to be condemning the Child of God, judging
Its activity, Its world as less than perfect? Do I
really have wisdom or intelligence or love of my
own? Where do I get all this from? Is God’s
perfect world to be ignored while I indulge in my
own judgment based on human experience? The
Heart will lead me to the Truth, to the Light of
Being. What I see out here is the image (mirror) of
what I am within. The ones out there proclaiming
my unworthiness are nothing but a mirror reflecting
back to me my own perception of who and what I I
am. When I accept the Truth of my Heart, my
world will reflect this Reality and war shall be no mo
re: tears will turn to joy, darkness to light, the perfect
pictures of Perfect Being, the Only One there IS.
Listen to the Heart. Do not be influenced by what
you see, hear, touch and smell. These are the
senses that tell you, falsely, that the planet is still,
that the earth is flat, that train tracks come
together in the distance, the senses that present a
mirage of water on the road, etc… The
Child/Heart is my true identity and it is there to
be acknowledged and to set me free. I have the key
to Self-Identity at its highest!! I need only to be
still, welcome and invite the Heart, ask for Its
advice and it will grow. I have nothing to fear for I
know that since the Child/Heart of God is my true
identity, nothing can be added to me and nothing
can be taken from me. I am already, here and now
God’s perfect child. The gold chain I look for
already is hanging around my neck.
