What I see as virtues of God Mastery —

♦ Inner Certainty —
You may call it Faith. Although it is not gained by acceptance, but by the sure knowing within.

♦ Personal use of the Power of the Spoken Word —
I do'nt mean the use of the prayerbook and decrees here, but your own creative expression and personal styling of the Power of the Spoken Word, whenever you are inspired or empowered to do so. I belief it can be expressed by each one of us in a variety of personal but also intimate ways, in words, writings, affirmations, poems, songs, prayers, rituals etc.

♦ The practice of Oneness with the I AM principle —
Hard to translate this. To me it is the awareness of Oneness with my own God-Source and the conscious choice to return to this Oneness, over and over again, despite difficulties, problems, struggles etc. To rise above limitations.

♦ The Conscious Awareness of an ever expanding feeling of responsibility —

♦ The ability to feel and experience and express your inner wealth and resources —
Especially in all those moments when you Know yourself as God Knows you.

All are states of being to me in which I am growing towards God-Mastery, every day of my life.

Another virtue that leads towards God Mastery (I belief) is

♦ Inner drive —
It is the drive and strive to know yourself as God knows you.
And there is no ending in knowing yourself as God knows you.
It is the drive to know the inner depths and spiritual heights of your being and the totality of who you are in God.
And it is the drive to give voice to these depths and heights, to become more consciously aware of your Self and Selfhood in God.

Students’ offerings regarding the virtues flowing forth through God-mastery during the class on March 28th included: attunement, calm, commitment, constancy, detachment, detail-consciousness, discipline, focus, harmony, humility, insight, introspection, mindfulness, patience, peace, self-discipline, surrender, wakefulness.

A key concept that Beloved Jesus shared through David during the class was gaining mastery through understanding of self: “Man, woman, know thyself.” Jolijt posted above the questions that students reflected on during the class. Some responses were:
*Recognizing when I am reacting to a situation, then standing aside and evaluating an appropriate response.
*I look within to see if what I am doing is with positive intentionality.
*Being willing to step outside my comfort zone to allow new or different thoughts and feelings to enter my awareness for my consideration moving to higher spaces.
*Surrender, becoming a vessel through the discipline of the practice of music.
*I ask to be shown a higher way when I am feeling stuck and I then receive divine guidance.
*Knowing that God is the doer: letting go and letting God.
*Learn to walk on the "water."
*I have noticed the painful areas of my reacting with self-harshness/criticism and determining to discover how to have more self-love in order to grow in love for others.
*Living in countries, places where people live joyously without much by way of material goods, has taught me to seek the true values in life.
*Accepting constructive criticism from others.
Thanks, Dee and Jolijt, for your postings above about God-mastery. It is beautiful to see your spirits reflected through your words.

There is another spiritual virtue of God-Mastery I would like to mention:

♦ It is the state of Listening Receptivity —

I see it as an attitude of life that can begin to enfold itself in moments of recreation. When there is no time pressure, when you have a sense of well-being, of contentment, of openness and surrender to life. It can easily feel like a flower that opens itself. The practice and continuation of this state of being can lead towards listening receptivity.
This receptivity I belief is most important in growing towards God-Mastery. And I belief we all practice it in some way or the other. When you choose to do so it can become a buddhic state of being that will grow and encompass more and more while practicing it. It aligns and tunes in to the inner world as well to the outer world. Both will coincide as one within this receptive state and opposites and discrepancy dissolve.
What I feel is that during this inner receptivity your thinking and giving words to it will stop the process. You are simply receptive and receiving. Of course you need the thinkingprocess and the giving of words to increase your conscious awareness afterwards. But it is the awareness of listening receptivity as a natural state of being that is to be achieved, little by little, that will eventually lead towards God Mastery.

My impression: As a state of being it comes close to or is identical with what Mother Mary calls — Listening Grace.

This is the last virtue I would like to ad here:

♦ The virtue of Transformation —

(or Reversing, is this a better word?)

To me it is the ability to transform, to change, to remodel, to reverse — yourself and your perspectives. Especially during difficult moments, dire moments and circumstances where it’s not easy to keep on keeping on.
The word I like to use to transform and widen my perspective, to rise above it, is the word ‘despite’.
Despite of . . . certain situations, despite of . . . problems, despite the difficulties I face — there is always Life itself and all of its fullness that surrounds everything. And within it there is always a way and there are always everwidening perspectives. And often very soon, I start to feel the flow of Life and the Joy of living and the fullness of my own life again.

It’s a very simple way, but to me it is a way to re-create my Oneness and inner connection in moments when I feel separated, disconnected or alone. As soon as I turn to the Light, despite of . . . etc., I am filled again, my vision expands and darkness turns into Light.

I am not sure how to convey this in English. But I hope it will be good enough.
