    God-power

    What virtues associated with God-Power have you discerned in your reflection and contemplation since the first class on January 25th? What aspects of God-power do you bring forth consciously in your life and how do you do this? What artistic forms call forth specific virtues of God-power for you: a song, a part of nature, a creative activity? Do you have any useful resources or teachings to share?

    Although English is not my native tonque, I will do my best to express my toughts and feelings as best as possible.
    In exploring the Virtues I perceive the enlightened Will as one of the virtues associated with the quality of God-Power or God-Strenght.
    Will or Will power I consider to be more of a quality.
    The enligthened Will, the will in contact with and enlightened by the I AM that I AM, I consider to be a virtue.
    This virtue is attuned to serve life in all levels, it is subservient. (Is this the right word?)
    Within the Eternal Now the I AM but also the Whole can be felt and all that is in it. And within the Whole the enlightened will can attune to the Need of the Hour, to all that is required in the given moment. It is able to attune to what people essentially might need, what spiritual attitude is needed, courses to take, what to give in the present moment — for the growth and well being of all.
    In a small but also grand scale it steers the course and sets the sail in an enligthened way.
    So I believe this virtue nurtures life profoundly and at the same time it gives God-direction as well.
    I myself make contact with it discribed as above and by listening and sensitizing myself to it.
    Then I take time for things to unfold.

    The Virtues (as an angelic choir) I experience as a great propelling force.

    Thank you for this beautiful insight. Your English is superb! You have captured so superbly a thought that I was also attempting to materialize in terms of identifying how certain aspects of God-power work in conjunction with other virtues. Your enlightened will steers the course toward meeting the Need of the Hour, which might be mercy or persistence or tolerance. So it is like a continual undercurrent that constantly keeping us attuned. This is wonderful and thank you so much for your contribution!

    Maybe it is best to rephrace the question in ‘What virtues do flow forth from God-Power’. They are not necessarily to be associated with, but do flow forth from God Power.
    They are states of Being and the first one (to my awareness) that does flow forth is Self Consciousness — being aware of one Self in the light of God, in the Strenght of God. Being anchored in I AM Consciousness. It is the power to Know oneself and to say I AM. It is the ability to anchor yourself as Above, so below.
    I believe this is the first virtue given to us by God. We simply cannot transcend ourselves if we do not have Self Awareness, Self Consciousness in God. It flows forth very naturally out of God's Power when you are in contact with this Power.

    I didn't see it as a virtue before. I called it Self-awareness, God Reality etc. But now I see it as one of the twelve virtues of God Power.

    What I believe to be a virtue as well is the Courage to Start — or to start all over.
    I experience this too as a state of being born out of God-Power.
    It gives God direction and at the same time it’s very supportive as well.
    As if God is saying:
    'I AM the same yesterday and today and tomorrow.
    And therefore you can build on me — and start all over again, anytime, anyhow'.
    So what's more encouraging to experience than this. To me it feels like a state of God-Dominion that, again, steers the course and sets the sail.
