So much has been written about this thing called inner peace and bliss throughout all the centuries.
It can be summed up in this:
Being in control of your emotions!
 
 

Does that mean you go through life like the sphinx? Cold as stone? A burning volcano never erupting? Emotionless? Not at all. Does it mean that you are unmovable? Choosing the emotions that run through you consciously aware? That you operate from choice? Absolutely! Something to strive for! Emotion is essential to us or else man would be inert and passive. Emotion is what stimulates all our thoughts and brings about action. It is like the gasoline that fuels your engine. But it will be a serious mistake to add petroleum to your diesel motor or vice versa. 

You could learn more about this in Empower Thyself if you wish where we talk more about the cycle of human processes and the stimuli behind all thought processes Empower Thyself 

When we work with the emotional side of our character we can strengthen our virtues and eliminate our vices. The system of Universal Hermetic Ray Kabbalah is where you can learn more about all these virtues and vices and how to recognise them in yourself . Universal Hermetic Ray Kabbalah 

Annie Besant writes that “Emotion is not a simple or primary state of consciousness, but is made up by the interaction of the two aspects of the Self – Desire and Intellect.” 

Desire – and here I am using it to digress. As many more reports are flooding in from all over the world in response to recent attacks on the lineage and leaders of the MMS, I am sickened to my stomach by the manipulation and conniving that is becoming more apparent and all for the illusion of glory, fame and fortune. Is it justified to destroy others because you don’t like the results of what you personally put in place? Does it justify the course of action for publicity sake? How do you sleep at night if all that is driving you is to fulfil your own questionable desires? Using others by misrepresenting the truth. By scheming and plotting. Manipulating media for ulterior motives. Desires employed to separate and destroy. 

Now, we are not talking about those desires that takes us to higher planes. Desires that edge us on to become more than we have ever been. To heal and overcome. No, I am talking here about the vices of desiring anything and everything that others have. Covetousness. Jealousy. Desires to possess and shun. Those things that make us the victims of our own lack of goodness. The things that create dependency. That makes us malicious and on the prowl of destroying what is good and beautiful. Attraction and Repulsion – the two forms of desire. 

In dealing with the ethics of emotions and desire we have to note then their similarities and differences. Emotion has been defined as desire infused with Intellect. Emotion which has the essence of attraction can be called LOVE. Associated with objects that brings pleasure, that brings togetherness. In the true sense of the word Love is not an emotion but a force of the Universe. Attracting and integrating energy. The force behind the form. 

It has been distorted to be so much that it is not, this thing called love. Probably because of the choices made to infuse it with intellect or not. It’s true nature is to unite. So much unity has come from these and other vile allegations thrown out into the world. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge all those around the world that has come together in love. I respect you whether you have publicly responded or to me in person. I know it is so hard to stand in open transparency because of the judgment and opinions that it comes with. I know candid speaking makes one the target of many things. I have become an overnight skilled professional at speaking my mind lol. I know it is so hard because we are flooded by so much that can distract our attention from the task at hand. 

But let’s get back to emotions. Emotion from the essence of repulsion is termed HATE. VICE. Disintegrating energy in the Universe. Energy that has pain at its core and therefore desiring to repel, separate and destroy. Where there is hate the temporary victor (victim) will scream vindictiveness, treachery and revenge. Hate is not of Self, it is not a force but it is from form, thus matter. 

Love manifests as self-sacrifice, benevolence, protection, confidence, gratitude and reverence. Love is from Spirit and therefore Life. Yes in the Modern Mystery School International we teach that you are an eternal being, you are spirit in the flesh. As an eternal being I am at the cause of threatening everything that operates from the flesh side of Life! 

Hate, revenge, rejection on the other hand manifests as self-aggrandisement, scorn and the desire for mutual injury. But then again what starts out as the virtue of love-emotion has been proven time and time again to be at the core of hate-emotions. It all boils down to the intention of the actions. Contempt for the honour of another. Selfish grasping at personal pleasure at the cost of social honour and decency. Destroying what is sacred and revered. Lack of respect for self and others. 

Love-emotion is shown in compassion, generosity, forgiveness, trust and respect. The virtuous man (or woman) is thrown into conflict with evil and even the righteous may suffer temporarily, but that inner peace can’t be destroyed and more virtue grows from that. The outer misery is not due to the virtue of love but only to the circumstances which oppose its practice!
I for one, but so many others, have been the recipient of much of this projection of the hate-emotion and evil even while serving the living and the dying.So I must be doing something that evil doesn’t like. Holding the hand of a sister or brother dying. Serving another that wishes to overcome their pain and suffering by standing up and moving out of victimhood. What is not a crime these days? 

Hate-emotion will yield the fruits of fear, cowardice, attack and revolt. Even when it is veiled amid a mass of lies, falsities and deceit, no matter if it stems from pain or hurt – more anguish and misery will always be the end result. 

Miss Helen Taylor said: “That for the man who dies for the sake of truth, death is easier than life with falsehood. It is easier for the righteous man to die as a martyr than to live as a hypocrite”. I will stand in open transparency and have nothing to hide, neither my mistakes nor imperfections. I have nothing that I am fearful to read about myself in a public tabloid. Feel free to publish more lies, rumours and allegations with or without basis. Ask me and I will share my greatest humiliations, there are but a few. 

A parting note to address Intellect. Emotion should be the impulse to action but not the director of the movie. Intellect should always be the guiding force. Strong emotion as the impulse directed by reason and intellect makes the wise man/woman. 

Thanks to the extended training I have had in my life and especially since joining the MMS I have no attachment to this physical form life, reputation or public image. My words and deeds and actions will speak for itself. 

Will yours? Will it hold up against the scrutiny of private investigators? Will it hold up in a court of law? Will it hold up at the throne of God? 

I pray that you will all find the peace and joy in your life today. I hold only love in my heart for every soul, even those misguided, and I hold the firm belief that your greatest pain will become your greatest strength if you just get out of your own way. 

I have no animosity towards anyone for their opinions or judgments. No time to waste on it either. I have work to do! 

May you all have bliss today. May you all find inner peace always!

Living a miraculous life in challenging times

Without a doubt this qualifies as an exceptionally challenging time with Covid-19 sweeping across the world. Causing separation, isolation from loved ones & looming economic disaster.

Let's talk about miracles?

Miracles exist and we don't have to look very far to see them. Nature abounds in miracles. Spirit speaks to us in the language of miracles all the time. The cycles of the Moon. The pause between the in and out breath. A gentle wind rustling the leaves   and caressing your skin.

Then again we are too busy most of the time to even notice! 

Most humans are so caught up in survival or accumulation of wealth that they are barely aware of Spirit.

We have lost touch with our true identity & Spirit is trying to reach us in the only way that can force us to listen - our mortality! Did this pandemic come at just the right time to catch our attention? To give us time to stop and breathe and connect! It's time to  go back to Being instead of Doing?

WE ARE ETERNAL BEINGS! We come from the Infinite Cosmos.

We are Creator Gods expressing our divinity in this physical form. We have forgotten this - the greatest secret of all now revealed. We are being forced to STOP, to REMEMBER. To reconnect with our true self. Death to the old patterns and rebirth to the new. Time to contemplate how we are creating our reality. Time to reconvene with our Higher Self. We are indeed God expressing God!

There are no victims on Planet Earth!

We have been given the gift of Life. We are so much more than just the physical body. We are ALL things and when we can fully embody this, we will remember that we are all One. We create our destiny. At a spiritual level all illness, dis-ease, pain, sickness are the language of Spirit telling us where we are out of alignment. What needs to be brought into balance & harmony with who we are? What needs to change? Time to consider that all thought is acted upon, so let's re-direct the fear and panic out there. Let's grow, create and be positive. Be the change we want to see. Stop the evil and take back control. Be Light workers restoring Light to everything.

Evil is just LIVE spelled backwards

Time to reverse the roles! Take your POWER back. It is your birthright. When God is expressed there is beauty, love, goodness, wisdom & power. When we claim our power back we can change the course of history! Bring about Shamballah! Living Life ALIVE! Being in JOY!

Bring the vibrancy of Life back into your existence!
You know best how to do this and what is required. Your innate wisdom knows what will serve you best and bring you JOY. 
Here are a couple of my personal bests:
  • GRATITUDE - for everything, the good, the bad & the ugly.
  • LAUGHTER - mostly at myself & at stupidity.
  • MUSIC - good harmonic vibrations, oldies of yesterday.
  • ANIMALS - my personal zoo, nothing better in life.
  • MOVEMENT - exercise & stretching, cleaning
  • GOOD FOOD - fruit, veggies and lots of smoothies
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING .........
  • WATER - to drink & to soak in. Wash your hands!

Stay safe and let's get through this healthier and stronger than ever before! Fiat Lux!

Creating Your Best Life with the Help of a Vision Board

How many of you have asked yourself the question “Is this all there is to this existence?” “There must be more to life than this?”

The Motto in the Modern Mystery School is “Know Thyself”, and there is an ancient system known as the Universal Hermetic Ray Kabbalah that allows us to learn more about ourselves and in so doing come into a deeper connection with our Life’s purpose.  In other words, those questions you might have been asking yourself are often answered.

One of the ways in which we might get a better picture of what we want out of life and what drives or motivates us , is to create a vision board and ask ourselves some of these very questions.  A similar techniques is used in the Kabbalah journey, where we set goals and visions to improve and become more aware of living life alive and consciously.

A Vision Board is a collection of images representing the life you dream of and helping you to manifest this goal. It is designed to open your mind to the endless possibilities of your imagination and to awaken you to creating exactly what you want.  Here are some suggestions about how to go about this Vision Board:

  1. Time: set aside some time to write down what you want from life. After you have asked yourself some questions. Meditate on some ideas and ask many questions to get the ball rolling and then write in no particular order all your ideas/dreams.
  2. Questions: Ask yourself what you would like to be. What you would like to do and what you want to have in your life, or from your life. Think about where you would like to be in 1 years’ time, 5 years’ time, Would you like to learn something new; improve on something that you feel you are lacking in; change some aspects of your nature? What would make life worth living and what would you regard as a great life?
  3. Expand : Elaborate on your ideas. Give it some context and detail, the more the better.

4. Categorise: You could divide your ideas, dreams , desires, wishes into several categories and make one or more boards depending on how detailed you wish to go. General details

  • Travel and adventure
  • Career
  • Health – physical, mental
  • Relationships – family, friends, children
  • Spiritual

Imagination is your best skill so use it and go BIG. There is no limit to your vision.

Find images that correspond to your ideas/dreams/visions using magazines from every and any sources.  You would be surprised as to what you can find when you are focusing in on your best ideas.  The internet is a good source, photos  and even drawings.  Clippings and stock phrases , inspirational words, you name it , anything goes.  If you are elaborating on your ideas remember to put a positive spin on it. And be mindful of your use of words (they are powerful). For example, “I want to lose weight” or “I choose to love and take care of my body and feed it only healthy options”

So now you have some plans and ideas to put together.  Once again the choices are endless and here are a few suggestions.  You can generate a computer vision board or select a poster and paste your images in a meaningful order.  Maybe start with a picture of yourself in the middle?  If no poster board is available then how about taping some A4 pages together or using a cork board or even a pizza box.

Use colour and make it vibrant and alive. 

You can even divide your categories into squares or slices as in a pizza. 

It is time to assemble your vision.  This board can provide you with a tangible point of focus and is a great tool for assisting you in bringing your ideas into reality. Take your time and contemplate what you are putting together, being mindful of your thoughts and words because they create your reality.  

Place your masterpiece in a position that you can see on a daily basis and focus on the images.  Allow yourself to create plans around your images and take action to make it come alive. 

So are you ready to take control of your best Life?  Then get creative.

The FACE in the MIRROR

People with good emotional health have awareness of themselves, they are aware of their thoughts, emotions and feelings. This does not mean a person with good emotional health is always happy! Not at all. Things happen in our lives that affect our mood. Emotional well-being requires a person to maintain a positive sense of self no matter the curve ball life throws at one. Therefore, being less reactive to life’s events and living with a sense of purpose will help stabilize the emotions.

 

Finding the person inside. I AM...

LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AGAIN

WHO ARE YOU?

WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?

 

Getting to Know Yourself means you are willing to STOP and become AWARE of what is PRESENT.

Are you awake and aware?

Do you want to be? Take the first step today and contact one of us for a LIFE ACTIVATION.
