Qualities, Truth and Blue Jays

Posted by Whiz on September 21, 2010

So many discoveries and awareness’s unfolding to my thought. I decided to make up a list of right identity qualities that I know are mine as an expression of God.

As I sat and looked at all those qualities I realized that they are all present in the infinitude of One Mind, One Cause, One Creator. Why am I making lists? To highlight them to keep them upper most in my thought.

As I look around and see beauty all around me, I am so grateful. I listen within and hear… I must be more accepting of my innate abilities within as already here, present, now. This Principle of man was dawning upon my thought and unfolding as ideas, qualities, that are not born of persons, but are from God. Yes, we express them, but we don’t invent them.

I then went back over all of the qualities words I had written down, again, listening within, and with a quiet connection with my source, asking myself what do these words really mean?

I thought of the story of the prodigal son, remembering the words the father spoke to the older brother when he expressed jealousy at the father’s special favor and joy with the prodigal’s return, saying to the elder, “son thou art ever with me, all that I have is thine.”

Could it be simply a matter that I too need to “look up, and see….the fields are already white for harvest”? Instead of asking for more of these qualities to be expressed in me, was my Father saying that I needed to “look up”? It’s already mine because as our Father/Mother/God tells us, “All that I have is thine.”

Blue jays have been showing up many, many times recently. I found it interesting to learn from a book called, Animal Speak, that blue jay comes to remind us to “pay attention”, “wake up to your innate abilities”, “no more pretending”.

I realize that there is a yearning to know a dimension of love that I have not been aware of before. I am realizing that it’s showing up for me now. It is actually Love’s own awareness that’s asserting itself in my life.

A writer in a Christian Sentinel magazine shared a testimony of healing of a long-standing ailment. In her testimony, she shared her reading of one of Mary Baker Eddy’s sayings, “No, no, love’s not like that” when told of some human situation going on.

We know that good is made up of beauty, love, harmony, creativity. When we fully realize this truth, we are better able to reject any claim of non-good that tries to show up. We can say to it, “no, no, harmony isn’t like that”, “good isn’t like that.”

The workers at the mint become so familiar with the genuine dollar bills that the counterfeit bills stand out clearly and enables the alert worker to immediately spot the counterfeits, and then reject them. So can we also be better at recognizing the counterfeit thoughts and reject them as we become more familiar with Truth, with good. As we understand the true qualities of goodness, those counterfeit pictures stand out clearly to our thought, and we say “No, no, good’s not like that”, and we simply don’t allow the counterfeit in.

This is how we “stand porter at the door of thought….” and express our higher awareness’s of good and is like a light that bursts through the darkness and moves away from fear.

Hello, I’m back!

Posted by Whiz on August 31, 2010

It feels almost like a lifetime ago that I last wrote in this blog.  I apologize for the unannounced leave of absence.  Many travels, inward and outward have gone on since last April.  I will recap some even if not in chronological order.

Last week a friend and I visited the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC.  While I have not visited for many years, I loved revisiting and seeing it through the new eyes of the friend who had not ever been there.  It’s such a magnificent place filled with beauty, magic, and tranquility, that it’s difficult not to get transported back in time with thoughts of having lived there in a life of splendor and grandeur in a former life.  Yes, I can well imagine sitting around that dining room table with 40+ of my closest friends and family enjoying an intimate Christmas dinner.

The special feature of this visit was the beautiful floral display made up of thousands of blooms arranged and modeled after a stained-glass window.  Walking around the edges of the garden while taking in the distant mountains and hillsides, I was filled with a sense of peace and wonder, and then viewing the gardens from above standing on the vine-covered balcony overlooking the design, it was truly uplifting.

I found that I had not taken as many pictures as I thought, so  I shall return for more….so grateful that I purchased an annual pass and can make the hour and half trip back there often!

And I shall return with more regularity to this blog to write about more of my travels, discoveries, and many more inspirations.  Thank you for visiting and sharing the adventure.
