Rosemary of February

Walk confidently carrying your dawn with you. Within you is the dawn, within you is the light, within you is the freedom, therefore with eye turned inward you are safe. …And the far reaching of the Light you trust in is boundless, and unknown to you as you sit here in this hour, in this century, in this universe.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 140

You must not trouble yourself with whys and wherefores because it is a waste of time.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 141

Every individual has within themselves a great part to play. Let no one think he or she is too small, too insignificant. For the power of the kingdom of heaven, when you make way for it to pour though as a channel in the stillness of disciplined and controlled emotion, cannot be measured. There is nothing too great, nor nothing too small for the part you play.

Everyone has a divine spark and it is realized for the most part, but also forgotten often.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 147

Bring this light within you into your eyes and hands and feet; into your comings and goings; into every small effort, for the more you use it the more wonderful will be your reward.

The quiet effort is toward awareness, keeping cool and unruffled in perfect faith, in celestial stillness – in your daily lives.

No one faces reality with more profound awareness than the person who looks upon it with the eyes of compassion that see through the wrong to the invincible right brooding near, waiting to be used, to pour out itself in abundant joy. “Of myself I can do nothing.” Abide in the Creator’s presence and bring this peace nearer than the despair of the world.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 148

Selflessness is a more-of-God-ness.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 150

There is a strange place in the thick realm between the hearing of the word and the assimilation of it – the acting upon it.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 151

You always loved the truth and it is strong stuff. We are trying to say that the beautiful, childlike thing to do is exquisitely joyful – hold yourself in a listening attitude and be artists in the Creator. [Or, in other words, be as a brush held in the hand of the Almighty to create art in the world.]
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 152

Deep Creek 1973 W Govier 001

Here you stand. It is the moment for you to realize that when you open to receive the spirit of the mind of the Creator, you let into this maelstrom of feeling a north wind to cool the heat and clear the skies and to know that you can be a means of bringing sanity and lifting hope.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 152

In the galaxy of thoughts that makes your mind you have the imagination of the seeing eye, the eye that perceives the invisible. Keep a childlike hopeful knowledge of the unseen goodness and a surety that the divine principle can be reached. Remember that though you may be very small outwardly you can be as the universe – your mind is limitless. Realize your cosmic powers and take time to be a channel for the infinite Spirit to pour through in this great war against the darkness, inertia, and savagery. As you walk your way and go about your daily lives, be measureless, be timeless, be eternal. Thus will you begin at this time, at this place, to fulfill the prophecy, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 153

You have never been failed when you have wholeheartedly opened up to receive the Spirit that abides within you; opened to receive it into your mind, into your heart by transmuting all untoward emotions through it.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 155

All that is asked is an awareness of the Creator’s awareness of you, of the immense love of the Spirit for you. There is no “must” nor effort in this, for once the heart is touched by an awareness of the Creator it is comforted, reassured, and content.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 125

You acquire a strength which will not fail, through the use of your daily companionship with the One who walks with you, whose strength you use, whose power is yours for the asking, whose mightiness is illumination and whose gentleness can make you great.

So peace be unto your hearts and great stillness and calm. Seek this creative peace within; here there is no struggle. Here are beauty and truth and protection and joy in abundance. Here is order, and here, locked away, is the divine plan. When you dissolve and become still, holy (wholly?) in that oneness with the infinite holiness, the divine plan comes to pass and you are free. You are challenged out there; in here the challenge is defeated. Seek and worship the Creator.

You are a distinct portion of the essence of the Creator; and contain part of the Creator in yourself. Epictetus, A.D. 50

There is nothing wrong with the human race except destructive emotions
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 128

When you close your eyes and turn to the silence of the divine darkness you will have a sense of spaciousness without boundary, the timelessness of the joyous instant and the light of a new day.

“Meditation is the clarifier of a beclouded mind.” The Tibetan Doctrine
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 129

The thing expected of you, through your final realization of all that has been told to you, is to use your imagination so that you will not allow any separation from the Spirit by withdrawing into forgetfulness…. That does not mean that you are to think of nothing else – it is an attitude of mind. Bring everything to the high quality of spirit. Do not take thoughts and problems down into the gloom of materialism nor of negative and despairing solutions.

Hidden Valley Park, Santa Rosa-13

If you say, “I have no life except with the spirit within me”, you wear the garment (spirit) through the sordid traffic of the world. And if it is unseen that does not matter to you.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 130
You can cleanse the body and cleanse the mind by the bright discipline of entertaining light (where “entertaining” means to “hold present”).
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 131

Within this center of infinite quiet and peace lies resolution to action that is born of love and wisdom. Whenever challenged by the horrors or irritations of human living, you know that through the mind you can touch all that is august, deathless beauty and immortality.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 134

What do you desire above all, above all? Perfect peace of mind, integrity, order, the victory of goodness, honor, joy and eternal love, free from human sentimentality and emotionalism; the high clean impersonal rightness. Well all these are for your asking, not praying, for your accepting and realizing and wanting.

Go your way, step by step. Now is the appointed time to do your part; and your part, as you well know, cannot be done with righteous and breathless rectitude, but by being receptive so that you can be used as a channel, which is part of being a temple of the Spirit. It is the antithesis of noise and dubious fame; be the silent ones, anointed with rod and staff and the scallop shell of quiet and the promise of truth.

Many people would be impatient if you should tell them that creative action, action based upon spiritual premises, is born in complete stillness, the stillness the inventor and scientist know in the laboratory. Not necessarily the stillness which is merely noiselessness alone but this intense quiet of drawing upon the source of inspiration.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 135

Those who go still further within themselves for the answer will find a timeless wisdom and inspiration to be translated into the human need of the moment. [Being still is “not movement, and, it is “still further” moving beyond the present progress.]
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 135

Do not belittle yourself, for this spiritual concept within you is deathless and all powerful, measureless. Therefore when you look through your eyes at immensities know that that which you hold within is more powerful.

The ignorant are awed by show, the wise are awed by what is not seen, by thought. Hold the concept which encompasses more universes than you are yet aware of and through complete humility of self and your service of faith you will become as yeast in the sodden world of materialism. Though your personal lives seem constricted and humble, it dos not matter.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 136

This infinite power is only revealed by the denial of self in the true sense and the glorifying of the Light within.

This spiritual concept within you is deathless and all powerful, measureless (beyond what is seen in all of nature). …. The wise are awed by what is not seen, by thought….. through the complete humility of self and your service of faith you will become as yeast in the sodden world of materialism. Though your personal lives seem constricted and humble it does not matter.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 136

This infinite power is only revealed by the denial of self in the true sense and the glorifying of the Light within.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 136

Use this indwelling spirit! The Creator moves in you now through limitless space. Cast off your mooring from the land of fear and doubt; leave the prisons of despair and melancholy and set sail on a guided journey where the stars are in their appointed places and the voyage is true and beautiful and safe.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 137

Be alert, industrious in the habit of being in His presence. All that is asked of you is to be gloriously happy. Because of your intent you are being filled with healing, vitalizing, sustaining truth and eternal love. You will astonish yourself and if you can see the simplicity of this – the victory is yours.

Watch your every response and thought and bring to yourself a day, even a fraction of a day, when you have kept His presence; for this is the good news of which the prophets spoke, this is what it is all about.

Easter wonders

Do not strain nor make a mountain of your heaviness of spirit; keep the balance, for when down in the heavy flesh the subtle body tempts the soul with a sense of defeat. Then is the time to lift up gaily and press on.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 100

Another secret is to fill your reservoirs with light in times of well-being, so that when unease to the body or mind steals in like a thief you have the defense of the sword of the spirit (your inner self) which is light indeed.

All is contained in the present, eternal, moment. There is no measured time at this place, no future, neither is there a past. I am in the eternal moment, the limitless, infinite, now. My spirit is deathless, immortal, and through it I am in touch with all wisdom, all beauty, and all goodness. In this eternal now I rest sustained, supported, and comforted.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 90

Lift you spirits high. It is so true that it is not a question of fighting but rather a need of lifting…. Will you succeed the first time? I do not know. Does it matter? Lift your spirit and you will hear the guiding voice and know the joy that is fulfilling.

Keep awareness, like a finger touching a spot. Keep awareness of the presence in one-ness with the inner you; to be aware of the Creator all about you and in every activity of your daily life.
Turn to the light. Turn to it; stretch out the finger of your mind and touch this light. Touch it. Touch it all through the day and it will clear the mind of vain imagining, of fearful thoughts. Touch with your mind this high state, this high spirit, this light where you are!

“The perfection of the soul consists not in speaking, nor in thinking much on the Creator, but in loving the Creator sufficiently.” Miguel de Molinas, 1640-1967

You are not asked to examine your faults for longer than it takes to be aware of them.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 95

All rests in feelings and emotions of the heart; they are like great living currents – hot waters and cold waters, boiling liquid emotion or iced and frozen secret feeling. How resentment freezes itself and keeps fresh and alive in ice!
All is feeling – terrible, stark, animal feeling. Transmute it with love, for love changes emotion to another state; it melts ice and changes fire to cool peace of thought.
Your gentleness will make you great. Be on guard and watch the temptation of judgment. Fill yourself with the guardianship of love itself and walk among men and women who have their own burdens. You will help release them; and by so much kindness you will bring the kingdom of heaven nearer.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 98

You will learn to rest in vigilance…. You will begin to see the importance of this vigil; how concentrated, how powerful, how impersonal and how stern it is. …Sins are the veils and chains and heaviness that keep your feet in swamps… Fight the good fight and be shriven of all non-essentials. Catch the idle moment and retrieve it to everlasting glory and joy.
Vigilance to the presence of the Creator each and every moment is our salvation. So go you way, perfect in intent.
