Deeper Levels of Understanding
Submitted by : Lora Mendel
never give you the knowing of the spirit, except
as you feel it within yourselves.
It is the feeling, the knowing -- THAT DEEP KNOWING,
that awareness, that wholeness,
when one no longer cares for 'things',
there is a completeness that gives freedom
(by Dr Murdo MacDonald-Bayne)
There is so much truth that speaks to one's soul.
Learn to find inspiration in Nature,
in whatever brings Harmony to one's inner being.
Intellectual knowledge in itself is limited
in its way and is relative to the thinker.
example, if several people read a passage
from their holy scriptures, it usually results in
having varied interpretations of those words.
Why? Mainly because each person is at a
different level of soul development.
No one is either right or wrong.
We are simply at various stages of
So I feel it is more important for the individual
to seek out what is personally helpful to
them at that moment, to find the knowledge
and understanding that will make them
grow strong inwardly and bring peace and
love into their heart as they go through
their daily life.
I think also we need to realize that the spiritual
work goes on in and around us whether we
are in a physical body or not. Keeping the
physical shell is not the goal of being here
since it is only temporary at best, whereas
living in Spirit is 'Being' now, living in endless
consciousness and awareness.
Most people will say that the material form is the real
because we see it and can confirm it
by our physical senses. Yet in a matter
of seconds a physical form can be dissipated,
its elements dissolved into the ether of space
from whence it arose.
Why cling to what is so changeful and fleeting?
Is that the kind of truth one can build upon for an eternity?
As well, the senses of hearing, sight and smell, etc.,
which we use and trust implicitly are very
limited in range. It is only logical to ask,
what lies beyond that range?
Science has yet to discover the meaning and essence of
Too long have the majority been kept confined to a
regulated path of knowledge of the spirit
and most have followed blindly, accepting
what is placed before them without
truly understanding so that
"Seeing, they do not perceive"
has become the norm.
It then becomes a belief but
we do not truly know the why of it.
A time will come when we must hold these
prevalent beliefs up to the light and
consider what they are and how
they have helped or hindered our development.
We must become conscious of what is in the mind,
of what it is made up, and when we better
understand how and what we are thinking
we will arrive at the cause of our
misconceptions and free ourselves from
the burdens of the past, the effects we
are so constantly reacting to without
essential to take that path which leads
inwardly for all too often we are
distracted and only seek outwardly
for ways to deal with life, with the end
result that we are merely dealing with
effects and have not yet understood the
cause. We need to learn more about the
Spiritual Laws of Life, and we can start
today, here and now,
by knowing the cause of our thinking.
Allow the God centre within you
to be revealed in your thoughts, your actions,
and the Love you send to all.
