+ "Like the bee gathering honey from the different flowers, the wise perscon accepts the essence of the different scriptures and sees only the good in all religions." - Mahatma Gandhi
+ ďHumanity stands at a crossroads between horror and hope. In choosing hope, we must seed a new consciousness, a radically fresh approach to life drawing its inspiration from perennial spiritual and moral insights, intuition and experience. We call this new awareness interspiritual, implying not the homogenization of religion, but the recovering of the shared mystic heart beating in the center of the worldís deepest spiritual traditions.Ē -- Brother Wayne Teasdale in The Mystic Heart
+ To base a religious philosophy on questions instead of answers increases the likelihood of wonder and amazement. -- Lawrence Kushner
+ "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." Ė Albert Einstein
The sages of the ages all tell us that we are intimate and intricately connected to our source, to each other, to everything. We are blessed today with wisdom from many, many sources including but not limited to the great wisdom traditions of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism.
+ The core message of all of the sages of the ages is always the Perennial Philosophy, or Mysticism. Aldous Huxley was one of the great teachers of the Perennial Philosophy. He wrote a comprehensive and illuminating book called The Perennial Philosophy in the 1940s. In an introduction to a translation of the BHAGAVAD GITA, he wrote a brief summary of his ideas.
(The following is a section I wrote recently on the heavenly attribute of Wisdom for THE AMAZING JOURNEY which explores each of the 12 spiritual practices and 9 heavenly attributes which are promoted here.)
You have been practicing discernment and you have become wise. People are seeking you out now. They see heaven in you and they want and need what you are enjoying in abundance. Love is making you wise. Love is connecting you to so much wisdom.
Keep going. Keep growing. Keep expanding your awareness of the great variety of possibilities. You are in heaven and you are wise. We are all in heaven and the wise realize it, live it, enjoy it fully.
Seek more wisdom every day. Seek it and share it. I give it to you freely. ďSeek and you will find.Ē
Now you know. You know what heaven is. You are here and you know it. You have found it. You have made it yours and you know you want to share this joy with everyone. The wise know that the abundance of Love is for every one and must be shared freely, offered fully, given and received faithfully.
The wise know that heaven is here and we are creating a more heavenly earth. It takes wisdom to know how to do this. It takes wisdom to know that it can be done and is Godís will. Godís will be done. Heaven on earth. This is our mission, our responsibility, our joy, our purpose, our prayer.
MAKE IT SO.
It is Godís will that no one is left behind when abundance is so freely given. It is Godís will that the gift of joy is given freely to every one.
It is Godís will that everyone becomes wise. It is Godís will that the beauty of everything is revealed to all Ö including the beauty of YOU. It is Godís will that everyone realizes and receives the unconditional, unlimited, uniting LOVE which is at the heart of creation and is pervasive, reaching every atom and every quark. It is Godís will that the truth be known, the truth which sets us free, the truth of abundance, joy, wisdom, beauty, love, peace, justice and freedom. It is Godís will that the peace of heaven is realized everywhere. It is Godís will that everyone is treated with justice, wrongs righted, broken relationships reconciled, enemies become friends. It is Godís will that we all enjoy and use the gift of freedom to set every one free.
The wise know this. The wise act. The wise make it so. Use the wisdom God gives to you freely and abundantly. Use it to bring everyone to the heavenly feast which is set before us all right now, right here.
