You don’t have to save your country, your economic system, your house, your stuff, your religion, even your beliefs. You may wish to, but quite honestly these things are not eternal and the light within is where all of your power lies. It is where all if anyone ‘s power lies . That’s what you protect in your children, in yourself, in your spiritually-minded circle of friends.
Through that inner divinity we will determine what is needed on the other side not only for human survival, but for the evolutionary leap that we are undertaking…
~ Ida Lawrence in ‘The Warriors Way to Heaven on Earth’
When the I in me listens to the I in you, then the We in me speaks…
Be clear in our thoughts.
Clarity in thoughts leads to clarity in words and this in turn
leads to clarity in action…
Right or wrong,
Joy and sorrow,
These are of the mind only.
They are not yours.
It is not really you
Who acts or enjoys.
You are everywhere,
Forever and truly free,
The single witness of all things.
But if you see yourself as separate,
Then you are bound.
“I do this. I do that.”
The big black snake of selfishness
Has bitten you!
“I do nothing.”
This is the nectar of faith,
So drink and be happy!
Know you are one,
With the fire of this conviction, burn down the forest of ignorance.
~ Ashtavakra Gita – translation by Thomas Byrom
