    WEEK 3 QUESTION:

    ACCEPTING OUR PREMISE FROM LAST WEEK'S SESSION THAT THE ENTIRE COSMOS DEPENDS UPON YOU, DEVELOP A STRATEGY THAT ALLOWS YOU TO INCREASE YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND USE OF THE MERCURIAL RELEASES OF DIVINE INSPIRATION DISCUSSED IN HEARTSTREAM #15.

    Am I a week ahead or are many in the class a week behind? I am going to make the bold move of posting my response to the question first, now that I have transcended the” fear” of what others may think. I say this in good humor knowing that someone has to break the ice.

    From the description, a Mercurial release of divine inspiration sounds like a very powerful and profound release that has “planetary and cosmic effect”. This sounds like a lot more than the everyday angelic promptings so I will need to concentrate on increasing my understanding of what a Mercurial release actually is. Obviously, a lot more is happening on inner levels than we realize. A couple paragraphs later in the Heartstream Clare de Lis gives us a key. She states that “to feel the light of the heart of your Presence fully engulfing your being”. When this God essence fills your feeling world the wisdom of the heart springs forth. This gives us a starting point in devising the strategy. It shouldn’t surprise us that again the heart is the doorway through which we make the connection with the Mindful Ones and our own Divine Presence.

    Personally, my strategy is to try to listen to the heart throughout the day as much as conditions allow. Even though you are busy, maintain a space of stillness; just know that it is there. I recall a quote from Mary Baker Eddy: “God is heard when the senses are silent.” We can minimize intrusions and noise by turning down TV’s, turning off radios and protecting that inner space. I think this allows your I Am presence and the angels to get through to you with their guidance and promptings. We all offer our prayers and decrees and often speak to the masters. We also need to give time for listening. If our days are too hectic, then, after the sun goes down a sense of peace settles in across the land. (or it should!) You can compare this to the opening of the band waves in radio transmissions. After the sun goes down you can receive those distant stations and they have to turn the power down. My point is, when its quiet it is easier to make the connection. A true adept would be able to maintain the connection throughout a stormy day.

    So my strategy is to start out small and allow the spiritual roots to get established.
    Listening, quiet spaces, recognizing telepathic communications within the heart; all these are stepping stones. Whenever I am ready and if there is a purpose the Mercurial inspiration will come with just the right intensity and in a manner that suits the situation.

    Wow! Thanks, Robert for your insight into the term 'mercurial releases of divine inspiration'. I concur with your comments on maintaining our heart-attentiveness by creating spaces of stillness throughout our day as well as turning off electronics in order to be a better 'receiver'. In fact, I just decided that I no longer require cable tv in my home environment and I am noticing a much more peaceful vibration that is conducive to meditation and co-creativity. I am finding out how delightful
    silence and stillness can be.

    As Beloved Omraam says in The Path of Stillness:

    "Noise holds human beings down in the lower psychic regions. It prevents them from entering a subtle world in which movement becomes easier, vision clearer and thought more creative...silence is always a sign of perfection...the more adult a person becomes, the more clearly he perceives that noise is an obstacle to work whereas silence is a factor that is conducive to inspiration."

    Mercurial---quick, changeable, sudden, unpredictable. The (Divine)inspirations that may come to us if we keep ourselves in a state of 'listening.'

    I remember mother once saying that she was in a constant state of listening. It is a learned habit. It is a fact that there is constant noise all around us most of the time.
    Until there is a weather change, I sit outside in the morning and talk to the sun. I send out my silver cord to connect.

    Also, (something new) Alpha, during the recent Swedish conference asked us to connect with him for one minute each day. He discoursed for exactly one minute. This is added training for me. Also as we look for an introspective environment, I sit with my son outside on the river bank and teach him all that we are learning in this class. In a sense it is a review. We practice visuals with our Third eye. We are training ourselves to be ready for Mercurial inspiration. This is my current strategy. It will probably change as I get better. Also I am under the sign of Mercury.

    Hi Constance - I can see you and your son sitting near the riverbank connecting with the sun - what a wonderful image of a mother and son doing it together! Thanks for the concept of connecting with Alpha for one minute - just because we may be unable to physically receive the suns rays (because of clouds or fog) - we can still connect with Alpha/Omega, how comforting it is to realize this.
