El Morya's Quips
I wrote a few more quips the other day that the Master would like me to share. This is from El Morya now.
He says, “Repudiate unreality by absorbing Truth.” When we absorb Truth, it allows us to put all else aside, because in order to really absorb Truth, with a capital T, we have to repudiate unreality.
He also says, “Consciousness transmits light.” I think we have to have awareness or consciousness in order to emit, transmit, transfer, emanate light. When we are conscious, we are lit up in God's eternal Presence. When we are lit first, we can transmit light.
El Morya says, “Replenish your inner sanctum through prayer.” Prayer allows us to have the rejuvenation of our soul, our hearts and the innermost part of our beings. True prayer nurtures us as much as it nurtures those for whom we pray or situations that we pray for. In this replenishing of our inner sanctum, we are rejuvenated through spiritual light. We are comforted by the Holy Spirit. We receive the divine resources to go through our day. That's why prayer is excellent early in the morning before we engage in our daily work, so that we have that reservoir within our inner sanctum of light. We've replenished our light by connecting and reconnecting with God—God within us, God all around us—through prayer and through meditation so that our day is fully charged with joy, radiance and light.
Those three came on January 6, just two days ago on the Epiphany, and then yesterday I wrote a few more from El Morya:
“True religion unites all peoples.” I think that we've seen in this most recent part of Earth's history—actually for quite some time—that unfortunately religions divide people. Or people allow their concept of religion, the doctrine and dogma of it, to divide them. Yet true religion unites all peoples.
He says, “Every heritage leads back to God.” When we look at our roots, where we came from, no matter where our origin was upon this Earth—or even beyond this Earth—all of that leads back to God. Knowing this, we can have true brother/sisterhood and engage with others by revering who they are as also part of this cosmic heritage and lineage, which all goes back to the Source, to God.
He says, “True beauty is soul deep.” We've all heard, “Beauty is only skin deep.” He is saying true beauty is soul deep. So outer beauty may be skin deep; true beauty originates from the depth of our souls.
“Live every day as if it is your first.” We've heard, “Live every day as if it is your last.” With that concept there's the sense that your demise is near, your end is near. There may be a little fear there and you think, “I've got to do everything I possibly can do before I expire.” A shift in consciousness allows us to say, “Live every day as if it is your first.” It's as if you've awakened, like the Buddha. You're now awake. You've just awakened to consciousness. You are aware that you are alive, that you're a being. And if you live every day as if it's your first, there's a lot of self-discovery that has to occur. There's a lot of newness and freshness. You're not going to engage in things that are old and decrepit and outmoded, because when you're in the mode of experiencing all of the firsts that you've ever accomplished, it's exciting; it's wonderful. It's like your first love, your first kiss, your first girlfriend/boyfriend. You are in an ecstatic state. So live every day as if it's your first. Bring that freshness, that newness into play so that you can give your best to the planet and you can be your brightest, your most joyous, your most loving.
He says, “Respond to all with love and understanding.” This may seem fairly simplistic and trite. However, when we really understand it and when we love all, we respond with love and understanding. We have to have the respect and reverence that allows us to listen, to truly hear, to assimilate. By attempting to understand others, “seeking first to understand,” as Steven Covey has said, I believe that our communications will be more in alignment with truth, with higher communication.
Morya says, “Virtue raises all in its sails.” I'm seeing the image of a great clipper ship with the sails billowing out from the winds. The virtue is what raises all in its sails. It lifts us up. It powers our ship—the ship of Selfhood—on our path of light. Those who are virtuous are those who are the true leaders of humanity. They become the helmsmen and the captains of the ship and lead many to the shores of reality, to the confluence of the river of life.
He says, “Sail with the Source each second.” When we sail with God, the Eternal, each second we are mindful of God's direction, God's compass, God's purpose and mission, because every trek that we sail upon has a purpose, has a mission. When we sail with the Source each second, then we are involved in that purpose, that mission, that goal. And knowing our purpose gives us the oomph to move forward and to assist the Source, God, in this great divine plan.
Finally, the last one I wrote down yesterday is, “If seconds are seconds, then firsts are now.” I had to think about this. We have names for different segments of time—we have days, hours, seconds. Why aren't they called firsts? The Master is kind of quipping with us and saying if seconds are second, then firsts are now. So the firsts are many, many points of the eternal Now that can be experienced first and foremost in our lives; they're not secondary. We put the eternal Now and living in our Presence first in our life, and we don't watch the hours, the minutes, the seconds. We are in a timeless state of being in the eternal Now. We put God first, and therefore we live in that sacred space of the immortal Now.
That's what I'd like to share with you today and I'll return the service now to Alice Tucker, who can maybe play a final song. I'd recommend something very joyous, possibly “Hail to the Chief” to El Morya for blessing us with these quips today.
Thank you so much. Bless you. Have a fantastic day. Bye-bye.
