Man's Eternal Quest

The following excerpt is from the book Man's Eternal Quest, by Paramahansa Yogananda.

Page 209, paragraph 2:

"Learn to live in this world as a son of God. Death holds terror for man because he has left God out of his life. All painful things frighten us, because we love the world without understanding its mystery and purpose. But when we behold everything as God, we have nothing to fear. We are constantly "born" in life as well as death. The word "death" is a great misnomer, for there is no death; when you are tired of life, you simply take off the overcoat of flesh and go back to the astral world."

I'm sitting here at my desk thinking about Thanksgiving, and what it really means.

We all know the history and surface meaning of Thanksgiving, but as is typical of me I have to peel away that surface layer and see what's underneath. And when I do, I see something that is very forward-looking rather than backward-looking.

People tend to give thanks for that which they have already received, but what we are saying with our energy when giving thanks has as much to do with the future as the past.

When we express gratitude, our energy is saying, "Yes, life is good. Yes, abundance is part of my experience, my reality." And, perhaps most importantly, "I am open to further gifts and abundance." Basically, gratitude is our way of saying, "Yes, more of this please!"

So as you gather around the dinner table on Thanksgiving and say a prayer of thankfulness, know that the universe is paying attention. Know that more abundance is moving steadily toward you. Know that your gratitude is being heard and responded to. More is on the way.

And THAT is something to be grateful for!

Happy Thanksgiving,

Living In Brilliance

"Heaven? Does it exist? Of course, it does. Not as a geographical place, but that state of being where you know yourself to be One with All That Is and you live in that brilliance. So each time you spend time with another one and you acknowledge their story—because everyone you meet has a story—you lay up treasure in heaven where the moth does not eat it and the rust can not get at it, and they are brilliant jewels; brilliant because it is light, the divine light of you."

-Jeshua ben Joseph, through Judith Coates:

A Trance Of Prosperity

The following Kris excerpt is from the Reality By Design radio show on November 13th, 2008.
You can read the rest of this and other transcripts at the Kris Chronicles website:

KRIS: In terms of the economy, you may not notice that you can easily slip into the worries and the fear mongering that is propagated by the media, by the banks, financial institutions of other kinds, your neighbors, your parents, your children and everybody else, as if - if you did not worry about the economy as it is now, it would fall apart. But it may be precisely because you all worry so much that it already is falling apart, and it cannot avoid that situation. How can it avoid literally being flushed down the toilet? We would have used the older English expression but the toilet is sufficient. And why does it do that? Because it has to conform to your attitudes, your expectations what you concentrate upon and so on and so forth. It reflects your attitude, your consciousness, your trance, period. If you collectively shifted that trance state to one of prosperity, then overnight the economy would seem to stabilize and literally fix itself. You cannot fix the economy by pumping in seven hundred million, or billion, or trillion dollars, expecting that it will, by that action, stabilize, if you do not fix the minds of those who are generating the economy in the first place. Do you follow?

RICHARD: Absolutely. The market is really a reflection of the psychology of the people involved with it.

KRIS: Indeed. It cannot be otherwise. So our simple observation to everyone that can hear us now, that can hear us later, or that may never hear our physical voice is to change the channel. Not this channel, of course.


MARK: Don’t touch that dial.

KRIS: As the saying goes, put the remote down and step away from the television. Thus if you change the channel of the trance that you are in, collectively, then the economy will reflect your new perspective. It must abide by your perceptions. It cannot do otherwise. So it is not the government’s fault. It is not the fault of the shysters and the crooks. Everyone plays a part. And it is a reflection of your need to understand yourselves and how you do this. The time is long past to blame others for what you concentrate upon. The media is simply reflecting back to you your own fears on the subject matter. And it is an enabler, as you enable the media. So you are indeed in a triple bind. And you can step out of the hamster wheel simply by stopping what you are doing and begin to concentrate on prosperity.

Prosperity is not a pretty word. It is not a word that belongs to the New Age. It is simply an expression of a different trance. A trance of prosperity means that everything flows freely without restriction, be that health, wealth, happiness or otherwise.

The Cutting Edge Of The Present Moment

The following passage from Q'ou was delivered by Carla Rueckert on Sept. 13, 2008.
You can read more of this transcript at the L/L Research website:

"The key to creating of the life a sacred journey is the attitude with which this journey is taken. We would suggest that the invocation of gratitude and thankfulness is a great key in bringing one’s day-to-day life into focus. For no matter whether that which faces one in any particular instance would be thought of by the world as a blessing or as a challenge, yet still, in essence, that which lies before you is the perfect gift for this moment, containing your service and your learning.

"There is a tendency to forget to invoke this gratitude when that which lies before one does not seem to be a blessing. And yet, we would suggest that there is wisdom in waiting those few seconds before you undertake a challenging duty in order that you may open your heart and mind to the realization of the full measure of your gratitude for the opportunity to be alive in the creation of the Father and to face this moment.

"In just this way does the discipline of the personality begin. It does not begin with meditation, although meditation is vital to a spiritual practice. Rather, it begins on the very surface of things, in the very smallest of chores and duties. It begins with the realization of the tremendous fortune that you have in coming to this moment just where you are, with just the people with whom you are and facing just exactly the blessings and challenges that you now face.

"There is an ecstasy which comes when the spirit is ready to be honed in its focus and dull care flies away; when the spirit gathers its feet under it and surges into a full and vertical existence within. The whole energy body begins to sing when this begins to happen. And where before there was a flat and pleasant landscape of things to do and people to see, now you are at the cutting edge of the present moment and anything is possible."

A Broken Arm, Wise Elders, and The Judging Mind

The following is from a session with Aaron on Nov. 4th, 2008.
You can read more of this and other transcripts at the Deep Spring website:

"I had an experience in a very long ago lifetime, when I was young in spirit. A younger and smaller boy in my village and I got into a fight. He had said rude things about my mother. I suppose this is a reason why young boys often fight. My father had died when I was young so my mother did manly labor, as it might be called, as well as taking care of the children and preparing food. She worked very hard to take care of our family. My father’s brothers helped her, but still she had to be strong and powerful, not soft and feminine as were many of the women in the village. So the boy had said, “She’s strong like a man,” and instead of taking that as a compliment, I took it as an insult and began to fight with him. I did not restrain myself, as would have been wise, so we got into a tussle and I was bigger. I pushed him and he fell in such a way that he broke his arm.

"Our village elders were very wise. They did not punish but tried to use our life situations for teaching. So after the immediate first aide was given, a splint was on the arm and a few days had passed so it was not so painful, they called us both. These elders first talked about what had happened, and then they said that what they felt would be an appropriate use of this situation—not punishment, an appropriate use of this situation—was that since the smaller boy could temporarily not help his mother and father by going out and doing farm work and heavy work, that for those 6 to 10 weeks until the arm was healed, I would go everyday to his home and do the heavy work that he always did. And he in turn would come to my house and help my mother every day. He would do everything that one could do with one arm. He would help her to tend the children, to stir the cooking pots, to carry a bucket of water, to keep the fire burning, to go out and pick berries and nuts and other kinds of food.

"So each of us spent the next 2 months doing this work, and of course we both gained deep insight into each other’s lives. I saw the reason for his statement about my mother; it was really not meant as an insult. Rather, it was a statement of his own concern because his mother was rather weak, frail, and dependent, and needed her children to take care of many things. I saw how that was for him. And he saw how it was for my mother, who had so much responsibility with a number of young children. I was the oldest. So he began to cherish her strength.

"When this time was over, we became best friends and throughout that life we were really closer than brothers, caring for each other. Both of us were far less prone to judgment, to the judging mind’s arising and to acting out the judging mind when it arose."

The Election, New Consciousness, and Reality TV at its Finest!

The following excerpt is from a session with Tobias on November 1st, 2008.
Tobias is discussing the imminent election (which is now complete), and some of the effects afterward. You can read more of this and other transcripts at the Crimson Circle website:

"As you all know, it has been an intense, intense several months, but in particularly this last month. It will continue to be intense. And just when things seem to ease up a bit, when the stock comes back a little bit, when the news is quiet for a few days, it’s going to come again. There are going to be times that you wonder why these waves and waves of changes at every level are taking place. Just remember it’s about change occurring. It’s a natural process. It’s only when the humans panic and the humans point fingers, when humans accuse or the humans try to hold onto a very, very old way, which is not appropriate anymore, that the problems start to occur.

"Oh, the changes will still take place, naturally. The evolution of consciousness is well underway, that’s not going to change. There are those who are going to try to hold back, try to resist, and eventually, it will be very, very difficult for them, to the point where many will choose not to stay here on Earth. They’ll hang it up, so to speak, let go. I’m not talking jumping off of bridges or buildings, I’m talking about letting go of that life force energy that flows through the body, because they are difficult and challenging times. But they don’t have to be.

"You’re going to feel yet another change, a very monumental change coming – next week. Now, it’s part in part from these elections that are taking place. I’m not going to say whether it is ... who’s going to win, but I suppose we all already know. (laughter) It is about choosing – voting for and choosing – for a change and allowing it.

"It’s interesting that … again, we observe the energies from our position on Angel’s Peak. We observe how it’s not just the ones who are going to the voting places and moving the lever, but there is a whole … behind every voter we say, are ten or twenty other voters – consciousness from people in other places around the planet who are also participating. This is the first sizeable election of its kind that has had that kind of energy where it ties in more than just the one person who’s voting, but they are also feeling the consciousness of others of a similar vibration around the world. You could say this is the first truly global vote that’s ever taken place. Now they’re only going to count x number of million ballots, but behind every one of those is another ten, fifteen, maybe twenty ballots, cast by the consciousness of others around the world, others who have said, “We want change, we’re ready for change,” or the ones who have said, “We’re not so ready for change. We want to stay in some of the old patterns and ways.”

"So, watch not just on the day or the night of the election, but in the three days following. Watch how things move and change and evolve. Stand behind the short wall even if yours is crumbling down. (laughter) Get a little celestial cement, patch it up a bit stand behind that short wall and observe. Be an energy observer like we are from up here, or over here, wherever we happen to be. Stand back and watch the ebb and the flow, the movement.

"Watch how the energy will start to move at a very, very rapid pace, and then it stops suddenly, just like if you hit the brakes on your car. Well that is just the fear of other humans coming in, saying, “This is going too fast. We need to slow it down.” And then something happens to break that energy free once again, get it moving. But then it tends to be kind of wobbly and shaky, trying to find its place again, trying to go back to old concepts and old programming, but it doesn’t work.

"So when that energy of mass consciousness takes a deep breath, so to speak, it finds its new level. It finds its new balance in a new place. Very similar to what you’ve been going through. Very similar to you putting on the brakes when it’s going too fast. Very similar to you feeling that you’re totally out of balance and when you finally give up and let go, you rebalance yourself at a new place, at a new level.

"You’re going to see a vote of change taking place here this coming week. The results – the results in the three days, particularly the week afterwards – watch how it works. Be a monitor. Be an observer. Come over and join us for a little bit. Get out of the drama and watch what happens. It will be amazing, unprecedented, and in a way very, very beautiful.

"We’re looking forward to it over here. I already have my seat picked out (laughter), we’re gathering the others around, we’re baking cookies and brewing up some new wine so we can watch humanity – the show – for the next few days. Talk about reality TV! (laughter) This is it at its finest."

True Religion

"Live from the place of love, for that is the true religion; not conditional love that says you have to be of my religion, of my family, of my same language, of my country, of my workplace, etc., or even skin color, whatever; but the place of true expansive, unconditional love that accepts everyone, judges no one, and asks of yourself, "How would I like to be treated?"
