“Every individual is the center of a system of emanation.”
Novalis (1772-1801, pseudonym of early German Romantic Georg Philipp Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg, poet, author, philosopher, and scientist)
“Imitation is not inspiration, and inspiration only can give birth to a work of art. The least of man's original emanation is better than the best of borrowed thought.”
Albert Pinkham Ryder (1847-1917, American modernist painter, best known for poetic and moody allegorical works and seascapes, as well as for his eccentric personality)
“Speech emanating from a pure heart and mind of learned men and scholars are naturally pure just like water of a river.”
Yajur Veda (est. 1200-1000 BCE, the Veda of prose mantras, one of the four scriptures of Hinduism; and an ancient Vedic Sanskit text, a compilation of ritual offering said by a priest)
“Every effort for progress, for enlightenment, for science, for religious, political, and economic liberty emanates from the minority, and not from the mass.”
Emma Goldman (1869-1940, radical feminist and anarchist; early advocate of free speech, birth control women’s quality and independence and union organization; participated in social political movements from the Russian Revolution to the Spanish Civil War)
“The centre of every home must be the shrine room! the fragrance of flower and incense, emanating from this must pervade the home and purify it.”
Sri Sathya Sai Baba (1926-2011, Indian guru and philanthropist)
“How have I been able to live so outside Nature without identifying myself with it? Everything lives, moves, everything corresponds; the magnetic rays, emanating either from myself or from others, cross the limitless chain of creative things unimpeded; it is a transparent network that covers the world, and its slender threads communicate themselves by degrees to the planet and stars. Captive now upon earth, I commune with the chorus of the stars who share in my joys and sorrows.”
Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855, French Romantic writer, poet, essayist, and translator who greatly influenced the Symbolists and Surrealists)
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” – Psalm 23:5, Holy Bible
Emanating from a Loving Source and flowing with a pure heart creates a joyful, inspired, creative, and meaningful life. To be connected in, to feel, to love, and to honor oneself and others is freedom.
When we emit light-infused energy we can organically facilitate healing to ourselves and to others. We are that intimately and divinely connected.
When I was a child my elementary school presented the film, “Brian’s Song.” It was a 1971 movie based upon the true story of Brian Piccolo, the football player stricken terminal cancer, starring James Caan and Billy Dee Williams. It beautifully told the journey of the cross-racial friendship between Piccolo and his Chicago Bears running teammate, Gales Sayers.
My mother had died of cancer that year, so my emotions were naturally very raw. If a school were showing a movie today, teachers would send notes home asking permission for each student to attend. Also a caring and compassionate teacher would have done her and his best to keep me away and back to help out with a project. But back then no one believed that children grieved like everyone else.
As I watched, at ten years of age, grief hit me hard and I wept until a lot of hte audience cried with me. Two of my closest friends must have notified the teachers, because eventually they escorted me from the auditorium.
All of us from one degree or another are transmitters and/or receivers. We emit and receive information through signals, vibrations, thoughts, and feelings from others and from our environments.
We all have the intuitive abilities and sensitivities to discern, neutralize, synthesize or emanate the energy that surrounds us. Like our bodies and perspectives, our psychic abilities are unique and custom-made, and a lot depends on how we listen and connect in. That’s why the more we know ourselves the better our connection with the nuances of truth and Truth.
I believe as we evolve and become more hearted-centered, more conscious and aware, and more unified our extraordinary capabilities will deepen and expand as we choose to use these gifts to be in service to each other and to our world.
Our cups do runneth over. We only have to acknowledge and allow the Love the flow freely through.
Stay in tune, my friends! And Peace be still.
