“Thy will be done, my Lord. Because you know the weakness in the heart of your children, and you assign each of them only the burden they can bear.

Please allow it to be courageous and pure; please make it capable of surviving the snares of the world.”

“The problem with holiness is that once we look into the face of it we are no longer capable of taking that which is odious and filthy and somehow pretending that it’s translucent and clean. In other words, we have to do one of the most revolting things possible; we have to face ourselves.”

“The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking, of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure intelligence can grasp.”

Henri Poincaré (1854-1912, French mathematician, one of greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists of the at the end of the 19th century, engineer, and a philosopher of science)

Meditation

“The problem with holiness is that once we look into the face of it we are no longer capable of taking that which is odious and filthy and somehow pretending that it’s translucent and clean. In other words, we have to do one of the most revolting things possible; we have to face ourselves.”

Ascension and our personal awakenings allow for purification of unwanted thoughts and heavy energetic baggage.

It’s good practice to check in, every once in a while, for clarification of what makes us tick and why we may think and believe in the ways we do.

It’s also a good habit to develop disciplines in self-examination, because then over time the self-probing will become less traumatic, but rather routine and innocuous.

Some spiritual inclinations may of course include meditation, walking, deep breathing, journaling, and prayer.  But whatever platform we choose that diving board will allow us to jump from, connect in, and to dive through to what is being inspired from within and without.

Spiritual disciplines can facilitate the purification process and initiate the deep drilling and letting go of those influences that can clog the mind, spirit, and body.

We are discovering that we are no longer victims, wrestling with egoistic energies and self-possessed patterns.  Little by little, we are purging the pain and launching new trains of higher-minded vibrations; reminding ourselves that thoughts are not who we are, but the surround-sound to the virtual reality game that we no longer want to play.

It’s a new day and our lives are amazing wondrous voyages.

With Love, Tonya
