The Child Within Us Lives - Artwork by Alex B. Jones



This Light of Life Within Ourself - by William Samuel
Who is that Child, my friend, if it isn't the one buried beneath the adulthood of yourself? We look for the Child and the Child stirs to tell us It lives. We reach for the Child and the Child comes running into our gut to respond and say, “I am come!” We begin to see small wonders again, the way we saw them as children. We acknowledge these wonders as gifts from God and lo, they come more frequently. We gird up our loins and dare tell others of the gentle Child within them, and our wonders increase and grow apace. We thank God for the Child of Life by telling our subjective selfhood of the Child they are. Imperceptibly, bit by bit, we let the inner Child lead us to the right hand and to the left. Imperceptibly, our reliance on external authority gives way to the Light of Life within ourselves, and we quarrel no longer with any man. Then we see the Child in all men, even the arrogant and scornful, even the feeble and sick. As we look for the Child in ourselves, we see It in all men and see them coming alive as well. THIS is to give God what is God's. - William Samuel











 


 Starlight Night - By Sandy Jones



The Mind of God

Time cannot touch that which is forever and real. There are aspects of Life that are absolute, always here, real and true. There is a vast and infinite field of Beauty where time does not exist. It is Here, the Living Presence behind all things. We can live in that open, unbound place right here in this world. It's in our Heart. When we find this sweet field, we are no longer afraid of anything, not a thing, not anymore. We are free. We are free to find and live the Illumined visions the Benevolent Heart that the mystic has known from the beginning. Now, when we look into the night sky we know we are looking into the Mind of God. And this Mind of God isn't separate from the one that looks into the night sky.

Spinning Wonders 


Picture in the Mind's eye a spinning top. You know those tops we played with as little children. Do they still have those? The joy of making that top go. We'd get it going full speed, fast, faster and faster, the colors blend into one and then it would whirl fast enough to be all on its own, steady, quiet, moving stillness humming along. It would go so fast, you could hardly see it moving. This Life we are is like a fast, spinning top wherein the stillness and the movement are one. And Jesus, the master metaphysician said : "If they ask You : 'What is the sign of your Father in You ?, say to them : 'It is movement and rest. It seems so amazing to exist and be part of this joyful magic of God's Infinite Being. Godhead is the Eternal Fact. The universe of tangibility is Its Self-confirmation following in time. It is all moving, spinning so fast that it stands still. Stillness, being the Light, the silent Isness at rest, single and only - and not going anywhere. God the One and Only That is - Infinite, invisible and undetectable while always here. We Live the holy Stillness as a world of time and matter. Tangibility is the delineation of Infinity. We are the Infinite Light of Wonders, beyond time, our true self rests in itself, in perfect stillness.

It's Always Something 

We often hear "it's always something" and we consider that a term of distress. But when I think about that, it seems to be a remarkably joyful statement really. It actually points back to Realty and the Eternal Light that Is Here, unseen, unknown, but always here. This intangible, unknowable, invisible Light of Godhead reveals Its Self as this world of "always something." Life is the visible evidence of that Infinite Unseen Light of Reality. The Ineffable, Intangible Principle of God the All in All is this inseparable two that are One. We are the Living proof that God, the Unseen Isness Is always Here. It is woven into every fiber of our Being. The Infinite Light of the Intangible Mystery makes Its Self evident, blending the warp and woof of Its Self, creating this holy Tapestry of this Life we see and know. We are Here because God is All That Is - thus "there's always something." . That's It, It's all here, all at once, the tranquility which is effortlessly available is our own soulful Joy of knowing this Infinite Presence of our Real-Identity. Always something, something just like this. Knowing our Real Identity, we can Live the Truth and be the Joyful Experience of this Omniscient, All Inclusive Light of Life. See It - and Live again as the two that are One. The two that are One becomes three, the Holy Trinity - It's Always Something.







 Wild Flower Meadow 




The Divine Imprint 


We have the Divine Imprint within us, the seed of the holy Child. When we open our heart to Life we will grow into the flourishing beauty that we are meant to be. We are here in the garden of God's mystical world, where Something Wonderful brings the rain, blooms the trees and shines the light of the Sun. We are living the Joy of God's Nature, being the holy garden that God Is. We can, if we choose to, let this Divine Imprint within us commune with the Presence of the Infinite Silence and It's Living Intelligence. The essential nature of a seed is not afraid to bloom. It gives of itself, reaching outward into nothing, while pushing deeper into the darkness of the soil. It doesn't fear the unknown. It is receiving from all directions, everything it needs in order to be the fullness of Itself. We each have the holy seed of our Original Identity within us. Life will open us and spark the flame that will enliven the seed of our Self. Our Original Nature will begin to grow. We are here to Live, to blossom into the full and fruitful bounty of this divine Child we are. When the heart is willing, everything rushes in providing us with all that is needed to bring us into bloom. As we live wide open to the wild magic of this holy garden, we come alive to thrive in the Meadow, now, in this sublime moment of our own being, living the Divine Imprint already present in the heart

Begin Here 


Watch and see the mystical and marvelous gifts this Light of Life will disclose to you. Revelations abound. We know God is the One, the All and Only Presence Here. We see this, and then we claim what is ours, we claim our divine heritage - and dare to Live this holy Child of God we are. Put it to the test, see what happens. We are the Self-knowing Awareness of God's Infinite Mind. What we do with This Light of Truth is up to each of us. We can choose to pretend to be separate and apart from God. We can pretend to be the struggling separate lost soul that needs to find Its Self through anguish and suffering and a long climb to return to God. Or we can choose to be, to see, to Live this Unbound Joy of God's Light - because we are, in fact, living It already. Begin Here with the Light of this Awareness we already are. Be true to yourself, prove it for yourself by living It. Accept this pure, carefree Joy of the holy Child you are. Start with What Is already yours. Here. Do this and see what happens, see the divine marvels that unfold, watch how Love blooms. You'll be amazed as you live this ongoing Lightness of your very own Heart, to feel the sweet livingness of Life's Presence as the very Self you See and Be.






 


Within the Holy Light



Living Beauty 

Divine Intelligence moves the tides, sprouts the seeds, spins the planets in perfect harmony. All things are aligned aright within this Living Mind of God. Everything that lives and grows and blooms is here within the holy Light of all that is. The ebb and flow of the sea, waves ever reaching to touch the shore, the wind that blows and swirls the happy spirit of our soul. Under the starry night sky we are pulled closer, feeling the magnetic source of luminosity rising into daylight, the morning sun to dawn in the opalescent beauty of infinite Love. And you being you, float sweetly, easily into the living beauty of this cosmic ocean, the One Divine Being and Its silent sea of holy knowing. Gently moving with God's eternal joy, we know nothing is ever lost. Our pure, pristine nature feels the balance existing in the quiet simple language of grace and beauty - as It shows us the way -
