THE GUEST HOUSE

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

The Person Walking Past You!

Have you ever stopped and looked at the people around you? At a store, on a bus, on the sidewalk, in the car driving past you, in a restaruant, etc???

The other day I was standing in line at the grocery store. I was contemplating things in my life when I noticed, I mean really noticed the people standing in front of me. At first glance I saw a fat unkept ugly man in a scooter. Standing next to him was, I assume, his wife who, once again at first glance, I saw a hard scruffy unkept woman. I watched both of them for a few moments, with all my assumptions flying. Then I began to study the womans eyes, cheek bones, jaw! Slowly I saw, deep beneath the surface, a softness I had not seen before. I let myself look at her open. Her eyes were once soft. Her smile once real. I saw the beauty in her. the coarse jaw line was now a story of her life. Her eyes still had a reminesence of good times.

I then looked at him. A man struggling to understand why he was where he was in his life. Hating the chair that bound him and yet he knew what had brought him to that point. He was once strong with dreams of a future much different than the one he found himself in. As he moved slowly to put the items up by the cashier, I saw the woman ignore his struggles as she watched him lift the items one by one. I saw 2 people who were enourmously sad.

My view of this image caused me to look around and see the movements of the people moving around me. The cashier who couldnt wait to get off work, the man behind me impatient to be next in line and leave, 2 women sharing peeks of their babies with each other. The tired woman reading her list to see if she got everything. oh the views were endless.  What did I see in me? where was I at in my life? I appreciated the moments shown to me. We live our lives oblivious to the people surrounding us and yet, how sad life would be without them. I find myself looking closer to home and today I see my family differently, softer, more attuned to the actions in our lives.

Be kind to each other for the person walking past you could be you some day!3007611185_d5eb9d5421

The Power Of Words

Words are the power of consciousness…….into the heart of another’s subconscious……..

What is the meaning of our words? How do we use them? Are they uplifting or demeaning to others.

Do we share them to snare others power into our own? Nothing is sharper than a 2 edged s-word!

We can choose to slay our fellow-man with the blood thirsty vengeance of our s-worded tongue or

sooth the savage beast within our own self and speak words of kind forgiving growth.

A double-edged s-word moves like a rushing hot volcano of lava through the very core of one,

scarring hopes and beliefs. Too many times we rush to spew our heated words into another, to try and strip the others power.

Nothing good ever comes from one telling another what they percieve their faults to be.

~

Lay down the s-word……….

Guarding our tongues with tender encouragement gives light to the other and spiritual growth.

Nothing speaks louder than a pleasant smile, a hug, a hand to help.

Love truly is the greatest gift God gave us. There is no fight in it. timthumb

Gods grace holds us in our struggles.

You are Loved, I am Loved.

(now look at the other person, they werent so bad after all)!

Morning Is A New Birth

Ever noticed how life has a funny way of changing us? No one ever stays motionless. No matter where we are within ourselves the universe will always move around us, giving us the tools needed to teach us. Life isn’t about holding still and finding that comfy spot we knew as children, Life is growth. Even if we fail in life’s experiences, we are changing, only to begin again.

Rise in the morning and life has a plan for us. Every second, every thought, every movement, will change our life experience for our day and when we lay down at night we reset and life opens a new page. Life isn’t about what we lost. It’s about what we have gained.

My Thoughts before I close this day:

Did I do any good in my world today?

Did I make my wrongs right?

Am I stronger because of it?

Was I true to me?

Thank You God for teaching me about me!

BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL!

FOREWORD
The time has arrived when the knowledge of our material world will give way to an ushering in of the Spiritual World that will bring enlightenment to all those who desire sincerely to know the truth about all things in order for truth to grow and become manifested within each and every soul upon this earth.

I, Mother Mary, believing that man was created by the Great Spirit out of love and nature, was placed by the Creator in man’s pathway to chastise man when he becomes disobedient or to reward him with abundance when he learns to become a true Son of God.

The problems of food, shelter and lon­gevity are more conscientiously felt by those persons who have tasted the bitter cup of life than by those residing in more mech­anized surroundings. This, however, I believe, is a blessing in disguise, for those who live simple, thoughtful lives do not have to unlearn so many things in order to reap the Creator’s abundance in nature’s storehouse.

I, Mother Mary, feel that many danger­ous misconceptions, such as in the misguided use of true knowledge for purposes of aggression, are hampering man’s current efforts to master space. Unless a definite change is made before it is too late, nature will carry out its God-given mission and destroy mankind. If, on the other hand, man realizes that he is the receiver of knowledge, nature will provide sufficient for all the needs of mankind, with a wealth of leisure and abundance beyond the concept of mortal man.

Therefore, to accomplish this most desirable state of affairs, it will be necessary to combine actively the relearning of ancient laws under the guidance of the truly Holy and Wise Ones.

The Bridge of Brotherhood can be built only with the stones of true faith, love and patience of selfless individuals with the Holy Wise Ones whom the Great Spirit chooses.

When man has learned from bitter ex­periences that moderation in all things is desirable and he tempers his own desires in the oil of compassion for his fellowman, then truly has the seed fallen upon fertile soil.

The seed of the Father’s love was planted in the mind of man when he was created. It needed only tears of compassion for his fellowman to fertilize, cause germination and bear the fruit of understanding of the source of all wherein man becomes in truth one with all and all with one.

As it is quoted in all of the Sacred Teachings throughout the world, our Heavenly Father asks that all those who seek him must be honest with themselves, setting aside worldly experiences, humbly asking within themselves for the Father’s guidance and becoming, thereby, as a little child.

Many nations have achieved a measure of greatness and then declined because they had forgotten the importance of true spiritual wisdom and the showing of proper re­spect for those rare individuals who were and are blessed by our Creator to act as the receivers of it.

That is the reason why the truly Holy Men have been hesitant in showing them­selves, for they cannot force knowledge upon individuals or governments. They’ can offer it only under circumstances that would tend to guarantee its perfect use for the true betterment of mankind.

They will not be a party to special favors for the individual or nation wherein advantage is sought or implied. Mankind should function as one family with duties assigned and responsibilities equally shared before true spiritual progress is possible. Only then will man have the opportunity of learning the true history of civilization and also what is necessary to manifest the Father’s abundance in effectually solving the problems facing each nation and individual today.

I, Mother Mary, have the following special message for the mothers of the world: “Are you not the Temples consecrated for the ultimate perfection of all humanity? Dedicate yourselves truly with love and understanding that the Rays of All-abiding Love may be emanated. Pray, listening care­fully for guidance and the way will be made as clear as crystal—”

Brothers, it is my wish to serve, if only in a small way, realizing that the Creator of all bringing his lost children together so that He can improve them in order to make one true, harmonious family on this earth; and to accomplish that ob­jective He will cause all of His worlds to serve each other. Did He not create them from one substance?

Through an Indian this manuscript reached my possession. I feel it is truth and in my way of believing serving unattached waiting for guidance from the Great Spirit of all good.
Amen Amen Amen

To change any of the wording of this manuscript would lose its true mission therefore it is left just as it was written and if Echa Tah Echa Nah, The Great White Chief, deems it necessary in the near future where I can serve in this way I am ready. In publishing this book the author’s purpose is to tell of his experiences, wording the text just as it is found in the man­uscript, leaving some things out as intuitive guidance directs through a feeling that comes over my entire being.
