We Are the Wayseers, A Guest Post By Michael Hopkins

EyeNote from Michael Hopkins: This was written yesterday, 27 September 2014, at my kitchen table, a place I am often nourished by creativity, and published for the first time on my blog (http://mnhopkins.blogspot.se) today. At first, four lines came to me and as the day progressed, I added more until the final product you see here today. If you wish to read more of my poems, please click on Poem Hunters.

We are the Wayseers
We come from all generations
All lands
All races
For, we are the Wayseers

We appear to the world as sheep
Yet, we have the eyes of the eagle
The heart of the lion
We are resilient
We are strong
We are patient
We follow not the dictates of politicians, priests or money changers
We only hold dear the words of the Prophets
The Saints of all ages
And
Those who serve the Good
For, they were the Wayseers before our arrival upon this Earth
As we will be the Wayseers for those yet to come

For, you see us not
Yet, we see you clearly and compassionately
With a vision that is crystal clear
For, we are the Wayseers

Sometimes we see the road so far ahead
That we miss seeing events so near at hand
For, we are the Wayseers
Demeaned
Discredited
Shunned
By those of dim vision who see and hear so little
Lost in false images of non-reality
For, we are the Wayseers

Undetoured by those of weakness and dim vision
We fight not with weapons
Nor fists
Not even with words
For, we listen quietly to That Which Is the Essence of All
That forms worlds yet to come
For, we are the Wayseers

We stay the course
We sacrifice
We endure
We show the way toward sanity
and
A brighter future
For, we are the Wayseers

We travel lightly and  joyfully
Sharing with all the gifts we have been given
For, we are the Wayseers

Though rarely seen
We always see the road ahead
Always knowing the way
So that others may follow safely
For, we are the Wayseers

Come join us
And Then, many more can and very willingly
Say,
“We are the Wayseers.”

Man with a Plan

He was a teacher of Life, with a capital L—the important stuff. Oh, he loved his family, even had a profession and friends, but only a few wanted to hang with him. He was from another world and sometimes things got spooky, like when he knew what they were thinking. It took courage to stay with him, and a desire to see beyond what they could see with their physical eyes.

Life was hard, but he didn’t seem to care. He wouldn’t listen to their rants and he kept talking about love and forgiveness, beauty and joy. “Let me show you,” he’d say, and they’d sit together in a circle around a fire and listen to his stories. He seemed to be asking them to ignore the problems they had, to live and think in a whole new way, to express thanks to God for everything, even their suffering. Someone always stomped off when he talked of giving thanks for their suffering. “I will not!” they’d shout. “If God loved us, these things wouldn’t happen!”

“This world,” he would say with a sweep of his arm, “is not the real world. This is only a play, created by all of your thoughts. Only those who believe in this world are born here, for we are what we think, what we believe. How could you be born elsewhere when this is what you believe?”

“Close your eyes for a moment,” he’d say. He told them stories, which unfolded in their minds’ eyes. “Love and peace are gifts of your Father. Once you open your minds and hearts to what I am showing you, you will go and show others and they will go and show others. My work is your work. This is how the world will be healed of war.”

“The world will be healed of war?” one man asked, astonished. “How is that possible?”

“Love is irresistible and magical. It spreads in waves and when the wave hits, hearts and minds are made anew. Does this answer your question?” he’d ask.

“It is an answer, but I’m not sure I believe it.”

“Stay with me,” the beautiful, glowing man said, smiling. “And you will see it.”

We humans are “indispensable to the wholeness of being,” quoted from Richard Leviton

Ever wonder if you matter? Of if you, specifically, make a difference for our world?

Richard LevitonPlease enjoy this quote from THE IMAGINATION OF PENTECOST: Rudolf Steiner & Contemporary Spirituality by Richard Leviton:

“In [Rudolf] Steiner’s theory of knowledge, the human, in the act of knowing, of attaining knowledge, actually participates in the creation of the world, contributing something indispensable to the wholeness of being. Cognition [of supersensible worlds] is world generative and through the pure moral impulses it produces, it is equally world restorative.”

Paraphrased from THE COURSE OF MY LIFE by Rudolf Steiner, pages 239-241

Jiddu Krishnamurti, His Life and Work, An Overview, A Guest Post By Michael Brine

By Michael Brine

In today’s world, would this be a voice crying in the wilderness?

Krishnamurti was born in Madanapalle, a small town in South India, on May 11, 1895. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr. Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr. Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophical Society had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a worldwide organization called the Order of the Star in the East was formed and the young Krishnamurti was made its head.

In 1929, however, Krishnamurti renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order with its huge following, and returned the money and property that had been donated for this work. From then on, for nearly sixty years until his death on 17th February 1986, he travelled throughout the world talking to individuals and large audiences about the need for a radical change in mankind.

Krishnamurti is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and spiritual teachers of all time. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual’s search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt and sorrow. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind, and pointed out the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and spiritual quality.

Krishnamurti belonged to no religious organization, sect or country, nor did he subscribe to any school of political or ideological thought. On the contrary, he maintained that these are the very factors that divide human beings and bring about conflict and war. He reminded his listeners again and again that we are all human beings first, not Hindus, Muslims or Christians, and that we each are like the rest of humanity—not different from one another. He asked that we tread lightly on this earth without destroying ourselves or the environment. He communicated to his listeners a deep sense of respect for nature. His teachings transcend manmade belief systems, nationalistic sentiment and sectarianism. At the same time, they gave new meaning and direction to mankind’s search for truth. His teaching, besides being relevant to the modern age, is timeless and universal.

Krishnamurti spoke not as a guru but as a friend, and his talks and discussions are based not on tradition-based knowledge but on his own insights into the human mind and his vision of the sacred, so he always communicates a sense of freshness and directness although the essence of his message remained unchanged over the years. When he addressed large audiences, people felt that Krishnamurti was talking to each of them personally, addressing his or her particular problem. In his private interviews, he was a compassionate teacher, listening attentively to the man or women who came to him in sorrow, and encouraging them to heal themselves through their own understanding. Religious schools found that his words threw new light on traditional concepts. Krishnamurti took on the challenge of modern scientists and psychologists and went with them step-by-step to discuss their theories and sometimes enabled them to discern the limitations of those theories. If ever there was a message that needs to be heard in today’s world, it is his.

I lived and worked in Malaysia for several years in the late 1950s, during my banking career. Along with several others, we founded a Lodge of the Theosophical Society in that country, and I can say without reservation that we held Krishnamurti in the highest regard.

Servers of the Divine Plan, A Guest Post from Michael Brine

From Michael Brine 

I am attaching two quotes today, the first from the Servers of the Divine Plan, called “The Aquarian Passion Play,” 2nd Edition, which was published in 1999. This group was located in the western regions of Australia in the 1990’s but they have disappeared, or perhaps more correctly, departed. Who they really were I’ll leave to you, but their wisdom says it all – at least to me.

Second is a quote from the wise man, Kahlil Gibran. It is not from his book, THE PROPHET, but another of his books which, at the moment, I cannot remember. Almost 79! Enjoy. 🙂

Aquarius“Many Servers who have incarnated primarily to aid in humanity’s transition at this time are just now, today, becoming aware of the close attendance of a vast array of Cosmic Intelligences who are hidden to most, the exalted ranks to which they inherently belong. As vague yet familiar senses begin to form within their minds in accord with a predetermined and revolutionary process of remembrance that is presently being accelerated throughout the world, these Servers are beginning to consciously feel a sense of enormous purpose and urgency in their lives. Their necessarily imposed veil of forgetfulness is being lifted today by unseen hands, and their memories and higher spiritual faculties are returning to them. The Servers are reawakening in preparation for the execution of a grand and noble work, the ramifications of which bear universal significance. They are beginning to recall the purpose of their duty to humanity and to planet Earth, and are remembering that they are an essential part of a vast collective effort, and a tremendously important task, the scope of which stretches back across millions of years and a myriad of past incarnations upon Earth and elsewhere, all geared toward the now imminent and conclusive glory. In their partial remembrance thus far, the Servers are perceiving with great felicity that they are about to realize the grand consummation of a vital phase of the Divine Plan for Earth, the solar system and beyond, the result of which shall cast life-enhancing reverberations throughout the universe –  Past and Future.”

~The Aquarian Passion Play

Kahlil Gibran“I tell you that the children of yesteryear are walking in the funeral of the era which they created for themselves. They are putting a rotting rope that may break soon and cause them to drop into a forgotten abyss. I say that they are living in homes with weak foundations. As the storm blows – and it is about to blow – their homes will fall upon their heads and thus become their tombs. I say that all their thoughts, their sayings, their quarrels, their compositions, their books and all their works are nothing but chains dragging them because they are too weak to pull the load – but the children of tomorrow are the ones called by life, and they follow it with steady steps and heads high. They are the dawn of the new frontiers; no smoke will veil their eyes and no jingle of chains will drown out their voices. They are few in number but the difference is as a grain of wheat and a stack of hay. No one knows them but they know each other. They are like the summits, which can see and hear each other – not the caves, which cannot hear or see. They are the seed dropped by the hand of God in the field, breaking through its pod and waving its sapling leaves before the face of the sun. It shall grow into a mighty tree, its roots in the heart of the Earth and its branches high in the sky.”

~Kahlil Gibran

The Laws of Spirit, a Guest Post from Dan Millman

The Laws of SpiritBy Dan Millman

From The Laws of Spirit:

The Law of Balance – Finding the Middle Way

If gravity is the glue that holds the universe together, balance is the key that unlocks its secrets. Balance applies to our body, mind and emotions, to all levels of our being. It reminds us that anything we do, we can overdo or under do. If the pendulum of our lives or habits swings too far to one side, it will inevitably swing to the other. You apply the Law of Balance by noticing your imbalances. The Law of Balance assures us that those who give freely, in the spirit of love and generosity, receive in abundance.

The Law of Choices – Reclaiming Our Power

We are both burdened and blessed by the great responsibility of free will – the power of choice. Our future destiny is determined, in large part, by the choices we make now. We cannot always control our circumstances, but we can and do choose our responses to whatever arises. Reclaiming the power of choice, we find the courage to live fully in the world. You can make choices through your heart and intuitive wisdom, or through fears, reactions and habits.

The Law of Process – Taking Life Step-by-Step

Process transforms any journey into a series of small steps, taken one by one, to reach any goal. Process transcends time, teaches patience, rests on a solid foundation of careful preparation, and embodies trust in our unfolding potential. The road to happiness is always full of changes along the way of life. Reach one goal, and you only create another, the journey never ends. When discipline and patience join forces, they become a persistence to carry intentions to completion.

The Law of Presence – Living in the Moment

Time is a paradox, stretching between a “past and future” that have no reality except in our own minds. The idea of time is a convention of thought and language, a social agreement. Here is the deeper truth, “We have only this Moment.” You can think and visualize the past and future, but you only can live in the present moment.

The Law of Compassion – Awakening Our Humanity

The Universe does not judge us, it only provides consequences, lessons and opportunities to balance and learn through the Law of Cause and Effect. Compassion is the recognition that we are each doing the best we can within the limits of our current beliefs and capacities. The more loving-kindness and forgiveness you give to yourself, the more you can give to others.

The Law of Faith – Trusting in Spirit

Faith is our direct link to Universal Wisdom, reminding us that we know more than we have heard or read or studied, that we have only to look, listen, and trust the love and wisdom of the Universal Spirit working through us all. Faith does not require a belief in a religion; it’s about trusting the love and intelligence, and Spirit working through you and all creation. As you live in the Light of this Law, it will transform your perception and experience. You will find lessons and opportunities in every challenge.

The Law of Expectation – Expanding Our Reality

Energy follows thought. We move toward, but beyond, what we can imagine. What we assume, expect, or believe creates and colors our experience. By expanding our deepest beliefs about what is possible, we change our experience of life. Any expectation will attract the evidence of your assumption. Replace self-defeating doubts with new beliefs based on clear intention and conscious awareness. Focus on positive outcomes and on our powerful human potential. What we focus on expands and gives energy.

The Law of Integrity – Living Our Truth

Integrity means living and acting in alignment with spiritual law and with our highest vision, despite impulses to the contrary. From the heart of integrity, we recognize, accept and express our authentic interior reality, inspiring others not with words, but by our example. Give conscious awareness to your heart’s highest wisdom, our internal reality, rather than indulge in random impulses or desires. Integrity means being integrated, knowing and being ourselves, so that our actions are consistent with our highest intentions. It is acknowledging our weaknesses and drawing on our inner strengths.

The Law of Action – Moving Into Life

No matter what we feel or know, no matter what out potential gifts or talents, only action brings them to life. Many of us understand concepts such as commitment, courage and love, but we truly know only when we can act on them. Doing leads to understanding, and action turns knowledge to wisdom. The Law of Action teaches us to overcome both inertia and impatience by acting out of courage, clear intention, and commitment. Every law contains the seeds of its opposite; there is a time of action and the action of inaction.

The Law of Cycles – Dancing to Nature’s Song

The world of nature moves in rhythms, patterns and cycles, the passing of the seasons, the movement of the stars, the ebb and flow if the tides. The seasons do not push one another, neither do clouds race the wind across the sky. All things happen in their own time, rising and falling and rising like ocean waves, in the circles of time. The natural world dances to the music of change. Like seeds and cycles, so go our lives. You have to end one cycle in order to begin another. Nature teaches everything works together at the right time, without resistance.

The Law of Surrender – Embracing a Higher Will

Surrender means accepting this moment, this body, and this life with open arms. Surrender involves getting out of our own way and living in accord with a higher will, expressed as the wisdom of the heart. Far more than passive acceptance, surrender uses every challenge as a means of spiritual growth and expanded awareness. Learn to surrender by shifting your perspective, shifting your energy and attention from the desire of a smaller will to the wisdom of a Higher Will. Be like water, flowing and flexible, to blend with life’s forces, rather than struggling against them. The more you let go of attachments, the more you expand into greater freedom and peace.

The Law of Unity, Remembering Our Connection

We appear on Earth as separate beings with diverse destinies. As each separate raindrop is a part of the sea, so are we each a part of the ocean of Awareness, the Body of God. Find love and inner peace deep within the highest truth that we are all one Family. Leave behind the baggage of fear, envy and resentment. Fly aloft on wings of understanding, to enter the boundless Land of Compassion and Love.

The law of unity calls forth the Great Realization that we are One Being, One Consciousness, manifesting in different bodies, like leaves are part of the tree. Our world is on the cusp of a shift from competitive self-interest to open hearted cooperation in the interest of the Whole Body of Humanity. As Global Consciousness awakens, we find ourselves in the midst of a transition, and it will not be without difficulties. Unity is the completion of all the Laws of Spirit.

These Laws are wisdom deep within us, the alchemist’s keys to Love, Freedom, Joy and Fulfillment. Live the Universal Laws of Spirit and they will transform your life, a path into the Light, Unity with the Creator and all creation.

The Power of Prayer, a Guest Post from Oscar, the 11:11 Progress Group

Prayer art “Today there are a lot of people in this world who are working for the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven. Few among them enjoy the fame and glory of being considered among ‘the great men and women of history’. However, those who work tirelessly, and their motivation does not lie in their being accepted by the masses, achieve great spiritual progress for themselves. Those who live the Will of the Father are contributing to the creation of the realities that His will desires to create.

“Some of you believe that you need to be in a position of greater influence in order to be able to guide others towards better goals. Let me tell you that the best way to appeal to the human soul is through the presence of the Thought Adjuster. Focus your intent directly on the hearts of those you wish to influence. Let your Thought Adjuster be the one that establishes contact with the divine presence in others, expressing your wishes with the highest measure of truth, beauty, and goodness. Every effort you make in this fashion will never be wasted.

Remember the power of prayer, because through the circuit of the Father you can reach any creature in the universe, even if this connection may not be direct, or even conscious, for any of the parties involved. God is present inside you – in each and every one of you – and through His presence in you, you can reach any other personal being in existence.

“How do you think our Father works in this world? Does He show up at United Nations meetings to tell you what you need to do? The Father speaks directly to the hearts and the minds of His creatures. Then, it is up to them to decide what path they will take. In this world, you can likewise work in this fashion, with your love for your peers, and your desire to create a better world through prayer.

“All of you who work in your respective communities, and circles of influence, know that you are not impotent when the time comes to promote the changes you want to see in this world. Live the very change you wish to see, and project your love and your positive energy to those who lead you – the ones you have elected to express your collective decisions. Work with your hands, but remember that your prayers and your love can reach all the way to Paradise itself, and know that you have the support and the power of the Creator Father of all beings and things.”

Who Built the Pyramids and Why, Based on the Hopi Creation Story, a New YouTube Video from Tom Mills

Tom Mills Pic for YouTube videoTom Mills has recently released a video on YouTube called, Who Built the Pyramids and Why, Based on the Hopi Creation Story. The Hopi Creation Story tells us who built the pyramids and why, how the pyramids and many of the unexplained sites around the world relate to global warming, our melting polar ice caps and what their purpose was in the past.
Tom says the Hopi Creation Story is reinforced on murals painted around the world, many located on ancient pyramids and large stone monuments. He has written two interesting books, THE BOOK OF TRUTH and STONEHENGE IF THIS WAS EAST, linking the Hopi story with Egypt and other locations. They are available at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/thebookoftruth.
The Hopi Creation Story tells of the Creator and family members navigating the universe, coming across Earth, which was wobbling too much to be habitable. Huge stones (pyramids and stone monuments) were placed on Earth in different areas of the world, at different times, to balance it so that life could be created or maintained. The Hopis tell of the Creator’s willingness to return to Earth six times, to repopulate the world, after great endings caused by fire, ice and flood. We are living in the fourth world now, which Tom says is nearing its end, when the Orion star cluster comes into contact with the constellation of the Bull.
One of the most interesting ideas on the video is that the imbalance of our wobbling world was measured by the Creator as the weight of a feather. Tom suggests that if we understood the Hopi story, we would be busy building huge stone monuments, for balance, again. Says Tom, “The Earth is in a delicate balance and in our human hands.”
Tom mentions THE BOOK OF THE HOPI in the video. This image and description are COURTESY OF: http://books.google.com/
Book of the Hopi
In this strange and wonderful book, thirty elders of the ancient Hopi tribe of Northern Arizona — a people who regard themselves as the first inhabitants of America — freely reveal the Hopi worldview for the first time in written form. The Hopi kept this view a secret for countless centuries, and anthropologists have long struggled to understand it. Now they record their myths and legends, and the meaning of their religious rituals and ceremonies, as a gift to future generations. Here is a reassertion of a rhythm of life we have disastrously tried to ignore and instincts we have tragically repressed; and a reminder that we must attune ourselves to the need for inner change if we are to avert a cataclysmic rupture  between our minds and hearts.
