Resonate.

The suitability of the word resonate in the context in which it is used in spiritual circles is profound, keeping in mind that everything is energy (spirit) in vibration.

Superficially anyway, a person resonating with the meaning of words implies a vibration of unison, of harmony; thus a oneness wherein the existence of the one…

Hope. (1)

Hope can be a positive state of mind, when it is maintained as a general attitude to life; or a grasping at straws, when it is aimed at a specific want or perceived need.

The former results in a degree of peace of mind and the latter in doubt and possibly disappointment.

The Buddha is…

Time and the Teacher.

“When the time is right the teacher arrives” is the saying but the “teacher” is information, and this information “arrives” by divers means; means such a book, a person, hearing, sight, neoption and so on, but we should not honour the means because to honour the means is to risk focusing on the means instead of the objective. For instance we can focus on the book,…

Co-creators of the Universe.

The Great Spirit created the universe, we are part of the Great Spirit ["one with God" is one expression], hence we are co-creators and we, therefore, created the universe* . . . . . and perhaps more!

* see also "We as Co-creators (with God.") in The Milk is White.…

Love – and that other.

There is love, the emotion, and there is that which is commonly termed love but which is actually an expression of selflessness manifesting as what appears to be love. Emotional love has degrees of self, ranging from extreme selfishness to human selflessness whilst what is commonly termed love, but is not love as such, is a spiritual state of being whose qualities…

Oddities and Aberrations.

According to the Cayce readings, when some of us spirits were in the process of getting enmeshed in the Earthly dimension we interfered with the structure of physical things by the use of our creative ability. 

The result of this was, for example, trees with arms and anatomically mixed animal forms some of which included…

Contentment – a metaphor.

When in life the sun appears not to shine on you, remember that above the clouds it shines day and night.

Universal Balance.

The universe is in a state of intricate balance, or harmony; that is why for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction [1]. The universe includes Earth.

The Buddha and the Atman.

The Buddha stated categorically that the atman does not exist [although this is adhered to only by the Theravada Buddhists] but I have never acquiesced with this.

However, not long ago I neopted that the moul is the sum total of a spirit’s experiences in many lives*. The atman is, generally speaking, synonymous with the…

Organization Exuding Perfection.

My response to posts in The Dream Garden at Gaia in a thread highlighting the fact that many people seem to have similar recurring dreams when they are young:

The Moul and Animal Instincts.

In the case of most animals the territorial instinct is confined to the physical environment whereas in humans this instinct extends to the abstract in that, in the moul, the “mental territory” of the ‘I’ exists. Hence, we find feelings to do with ‘invasion of my space’ – that is, feelings of possession or attachment.

This is…

The Reality.

Paradoxically, the Reality is so simple yet so complex. The ‘complexity’ is an illusion because the simplicity of the fact is made complex by the limitations of the mind [Moul].

The complexity arises from the vast number of the examples of the Reality in operation, and the simplicity from the simple reason/cause which is karma; it…

Non-attachment.

Non-attachment is that state of being where one is detached from something but where, at will, one can connect with it, assess one’s human feelings etcetera toward it, and then disconnect with it.                                                                                                                      …

Detaching from, but living, life.

The Buddhist monk is detached from worldly life by living in a monastery and, when outside the monastery, walking with bowed head whilst focusing on walking, or doing other simple things whilst always focusing on the now. The lay person, to achieve such detachment from what is going on around them in the microcosm and the macrocosm, has to rely upon acquiring the…

Invest in that knowledge which divests one of the vestments that are one’s Moul.

The Truth, the Reality.

The Truth, the Reality, is constant; it is only one’s perception of it which may vary until one arrives at it. 

Note:– Below are the opening paragraphs of Chapter 1 of The Milk Is White:

Jealousy.

Q: What is jealousy, what is its purpose and what are its antidotes?

A: Jealousy is an emotion, a creation of the mind, stemming from the “I”.

It has no purpose but it is a challenge. Like the mind it does not exist in Reality.

The…
