1. Practise Relaxation of the mind to allow subconscious activity to calm prior to Meditation.
2. Practise Meditation by simple reference to your personal affirmations and sources of inspiration
3. Balance input or ‘feeding’ the mind with material of others with attention to the expression of the creative ideas and concepts born of your own thought.
4. Remember the magic of the term ‘balance’ as an aid in assessing values of everything.
5. Beyond all complex intellectual activity there resides an innate faculty that is invaluable and termed ‘common sense’.
6. The innermost wisdom within us all always is our retreat when suffering a troubled mind.
7.  Mind without emotional support remains sterile.

When beginning to question ourselves we seek to be aware of the extent of our knowledge and feel confident to dip into that pool of knowledge we already possess.
When it comes to deeper issues rather than mere practical ones, we are less sure of ourselves. Most of us have not taken time to make a study of human nature and psychology that reveals that we have different layers and degrees of conscious awareness other than the two we are in the habit of describing as states of being “asleep” or “awake” and it is understandably the latter that is our main concern here as the realms of unconsciousness demand much deeper study.
So when we are in what we consider is our normal state of consciousness or wakefulness we are selective and free to choose to focus upon whatever we wish whether it is a mundane task or a serious intellectual study. So there is potential for great differences between us as individuals in our natural inclinations when combined with the power of free will and choice.
Whatever we choose as our focus to study; whatever we choose to consciously think about; we are increasing our self confidence as our knowledge and interest grows and most importantly our direct experiences in applying what we know. This is the hardest of all but is assisted by our ability to prioritise and to concentrate with perhaps the added vital ingredient for success – to add enjoyment to whatever we are doing.
Our first discipline then is to become aware of our thought processes, to understand them and to then learn to channel them as we harness them to our ultimate life aim or aims.
Consciousness expands beyond just being aware, to a deliberate exploration and development of our human mind and its talents and capacities. Our journeying from a degree of enquiry to certainties and from certainties to further paths.  These in turn promise us a degree of wisdom – that allows us to live at peace within our own being.
It is experience that is our teacher as it is our intuition that points the way.
That somewhat misunderstood and mysterious faculty we call our ‘conscience’ is that part of our intelligence that saves us from dangerous or impulsive choices and we must consider as our ever present friend that reminds us to be aware.
Expansion of our awareness develops ever widening sensitivity towards nature and other people so that our personal consciousness or intelligence comes to embrace a wider and wider sphere…and to fulfil the limitless potential of human consciousness to embrace Life itself.

In celebrating at Christmas the birth of Jesus, we are reminded to search out His direct teachings and contemplate their importance and the truths they reveal. It is ours to open our minds to the profound messages that we comprehend and aspire to develop our own nature towards a greatness beyond our present human growth.

………..

“A new religion will be given out yet it will be but a facet of the old. There is but one Religion, as there is but One God. Truth Itself is infinitely greater than can ever be mirrored in all the teachings, the philosophies, the religions of the world. Each of them catches and reflects as it were, one beam of he Light. Whether the reflection is a true one or not, depends upon the purity of the mirror.”

Master Jesus

“And know that I am with you always; yea, to the end of time.”

Master Jesus..

Life is precious.
Life lived in refinement is progress.
Man’s cultural life must be inspired by Beauty, his intellectual life by Truth, his spiritual life by Selflessness
Man’s technological progress is legitimate only when used in the service of a goal for a simpler, healthier, happier natural life for all to live in freedom within the Law.
We have inherited the freedom to work for and achieve human ideals.
We must honour those who have made this good fortune possible and choose well our actions.
We must remain true to the classic values that we know are right – from cleanliness, purity and goodness to the greatest and noblest qualities a human being can express and that we recognize as capabilities that may be emulated within ourselves.
It will encourage our confidence in seeking the survival of spiritual values in human culture and withstand negative trends and influences if we remember that the light of a single candle flame can reduce darkness and can in fact be the source of a proliferation of a thousand candle flames more to bring Light to the world.

Happy Christmas!

We grow from the study of particulars to comprehend the whole. This applies to the understanding and expression of our emotions, with the comprehensive, mysterious and all important emotion of love.
So as we know the nature of our personal focus of love and its familiar expression, we expand to consider and embrace all manner of its other qualities. In this we are aided in understanding and respecting traditional astrological properties related to the heavenly spheres and zodiacal energies and to the different types of personality and character of other people we meet along life’s way.
In the course of our lives we should welcome opportunity to learn of their approach and perhaps share some insight into their attitude and understanding of love.
…………
We observe the Aries type of love – in its courage and valiant expression in action
Taurean love that is stable and possessive and strong to claim its own
The restless love of Gemini associated with need to communicate through speech and writing
Cancer’s love is kindness that creates and secures a home base to nurture others
Leo’s love that is a magnanimous power and radiation of an inherent sense of rulership
Virgo with talents tuned towards and demanding excellence in self and in others
Libra’s love equates with harmony and balance in emotional expression in partnership
Scorpio loves with an intensity few can match in depth of feeling and its search for truth
Sagittarius seeks to demonstrate spontaneity of love associated with a freedom of body and mind
Capricorn with its capacity to work hard and persevere fulfils a natural desire to help others
Aquarius breaks free of any formula for love, seeking beyond personality to a wider sense of oneness
And we have Pisces love that is humble enough to demonstrate true self sacrifice and to love without bounds
……………..
We know that the quality of Love itself cannot be analysed. Yet we know that as there are different types of love so there are differing degrees of human capacity to experience and to radiate this wonderful quality that at its finest can be described as the Great Love that has given life to our whole world and beyond.

We are born as individuals to certain parents – in a particular society and culture – in our ‘mother country’ or geographic location.
Here we live as an atom in that beloved nation, culture , society and family.

In gratitude we appreciate the good and try to address the evils, offering our loyalties and talents to the soul of our nation – a nation that in turn will aim to contribute to the wider universal world of all mankind.

The laws of evolution and growth encourage us all to expand and grow in consciousness towards eventual comprehension both of the internal realms of our own psyche and mental environment as well as the vast cosmic spheres of life outside our limited individuality.
Consciousness is the Experiencing and we are the Experiencer, functioning with a mixture and often a blend of sensation, emotion, thought and soul that constitute the ‘I’.
It is within the enduring and eternal aspect of the ‘I’, that we call the soul that resides the intelligence that blends all of our life experiences to arrive at a degree of wisdom. Here reside the true guideposts to help us learn and grow towards our finest capacity and expression as human beings.

AWAKENING……

We need an Awakening, an increased awareness of the life and potential of human existence, both physically and spiritually. At this present time we have ‘lost the plot’ and must regain harmony and balance in our way of life, individually and socially. Chaos rules when we have no law and moral values to contain the physical and mental disease that increasingly becomes a symptom of chaos.
We must find a way to return to natural law or the spiritual law that directs evolution and in application to human life, will return us to nobility and true progress.
The destruction of our present civilization is prophesized and is motivating many to re-evaluate our present ways and circumstances and to seek and overall remedy. All have arrived at the need to curb the destructive influences, not only of political terrorism but of impurities of heart and mind reflected in our music and arts that were once the tonic for human psyche.
Can each of find a degree of courage required to stand up and employ our true intelligence and be prepared to curb the darkness and negative state around us? This we could do by expressing the need for health not only in body but in the creations that come from the minds of those in positions to remain loyal to the enduring values of culture but who choose to promote the dark side with its inherent ugliness and violence. Our ‘entertainments’ have become perverse.
To ensure that we have the option to continue life on this planet we must all make effort to avoid giving life to the evils and put our enthusiasm into positive channels.
If we cannot succeed now it may be that the dire predictions that travel swiftly along the invisible links of the Web of communication may be realized.

AUTISM IN CHILDREN ON THE INCREASE
A warning by a senior research scientist from MIT warns that a huge 50% of children born in the U.S. will suffer with autism by the year 2025. Present statistics show one in every 68 children in the U.S is born with autism.
One wonders what possible factor can cause such an increase of this disease and the culprit is generally cited as the company Monsanto that sells and distributes the popularly used Round-Up herbicide containing glyphosate a toxic weedkiller.
Glyphosate in the food supply is a factor in disease of Alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiovascular disease, nutrional deficiencies and autism in children.
Mothers should read the work of Stephanie Seneff, PhD a research biologist with many published articles pointing to this problem as well as GMO’s as a major contributor to neurological disease in children, once rare but now prevalent in the community.

LOVE PHASES

Gentle the heart and inner life
Where once were feelings riotous
And life light dims when once was bright
As dawn pursues its path to night….

(So quiet the life when age does reign)

Lofty ideals are proof of youth
Followed by waves of constant change
In adult years the waves grow calm
Gentler feelings provide fine balm ….

(For human tragedy and pain)

Yet in the grey and subtler times
As brightness dims and so our eyes
Still inner yearning bursts anew
Aspiring flame of spirit true….

(Anticipating joys ahead)

How fear we all, yet can’t recall
Or see life states beyond earth’s veil
The veil ,which thins, as on we go
Towards a strange, mysterious fate….

(Yet known to those who’ve gone before)

All who’ve lived, loved and gone this way
All those who’ve lived, known night and day
And gloom and joy and pleasures sweet
And ups and downs all souls repeat….

(As human life returns, renews)

Find love remains — our soul endures!
…………
