This week's quote:
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense." Rumi
 
This Week's Affirmation
"I am patient and paying attention and though I find that much is hidden from plain view, there is plenty being revealed."
 
 
Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
 

   
I Live in the Oneness of Spirit
Spirit is all there is, there is no other. In this consciousness of scared Oneness, I grateful recognize that I am an individualized expression of the Creator and Sustainer of all life.
 
Knowing the One Life permeates through all there is, I am alive with Its presence. Spirit expresses in, as, and through me. That which God is I am. I am grateful for this unity with the infinite which supports all areas of my life as I embrace the wisdom of the Universal Mind. Easily, effectively, and intelligently making wise choices that lead me to an expanded awareness of who I am. I welcome the effects of these choices as they show up in my life as love, peace, and harmony. I freely move forward in my spiritual evolution in joy and wellbeing. The past is the past I am in this now moment of bliss.
 
Grateful for this Truth of my being, I release my word to Law and allow it to be. I live in the oneness of Spirit with each breath I take. I have faith it is done now. And so it is. Amen.
Rev. Maryum Morse

The Good Thought
 
Going with the Flow
 
"When you are grateful - when you can see what you have - you unlock blessings to flow in your life."
Suze Orman
 
"When you are grateful - when you can see what you have - you unlock blessings to flow in your life.."
Victoria Osteen
 
" Just do you. Go with the flow and with your life because that's you experiencing life. You being yourself is you doing your purpose, so the more we get out of the mindset of thinking there's a certain way to go about things, the more free we become.."
Keke Palmer


    
 
  
 
 

 
 
Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
 
I am pulling a card  from the Archangel Power Tarot   for today's wisdom


 
 
 
Eight of Raphael
 
"There is something better waiting for you! Do what you know is right for you. A spiritual quest."
 
"There is something better waiting for you! The ways in which you've evolved have you convinced that there must be more to life (and there is!). The inward search for answers is rewarded at this time. It's time to leave the past behind and embrace a brand new you. This choice is not forced upon you, but it is of your making.
 
Your past experiences have been very important in helping you understand who you are. Be grateful for what you've learned, and build upon it! A relocation or change in your job or relationships is possible at this time.
 
Additional meaning: A journey. A spiritual quest. Doing what you know is right for you. A change of interests.
 
JUST A THOUGHT (or two) ABOUT THIS CARD:
What stands out from this card is: "something better waiting"
 
Here's why:
Whenever the 8 shows up it is a signal that balance and abundance are a'coming your way. Something has broken in the current situation - Something has been signaling inside of your deeper and quieter place within your mind that change is here. Now. To deal with.
 
The best part about this card is that it is being ushered forth with the angelic helper Archangel Raphael which means: the supreme healer in the angelic realm and chief role is to support, heal, and guide in matters involving health - meaning "God heals".
 
So this means that with the appearance of this card, though your world may have blown up into a unrecognizable hot mess, that underneath all this disruption lies the gold - the Solution to your problem that had you in bondage.
 
Even though we humans (as the years advance) don't exactly like changes, this kind of change will result in a Ka-ching. Meaning you will find your coffers added to. You will find that what your soul has been longing for that you never even spoke aloud to anyone, now your circumstances will support a revamping of your life circumstance in a way that will feel as if you have unseen hands guiding you to right where you need to be.
 
This is the time that messages within your meetings and comings and goings, will contain an element of improvement. You'll meet the right connections leading to you inexorably towards what will truly make you happy.
How awesome is that?
 
So as pictured on the face of this card, you are journeying up a path with support by your side and even though the way seems dimly lit, there is inner light guiding you on your way.
 
Fear not, you are protected.

Here's an affirmation to help anchor this idea:

"I am courageous even though things are unknown to me."

 
And so it is
Namaste & Peace -

What Brother Ernie said:


Lesson 6
We must learn to trust in the law of growth

If we think we can guide our brother aright while our own feet still walk in darkness we are mistaken. We must first clarify our own vision, then we shall become as lights lighting the way for others.
 
But can we teach a lesson we have not learned?
 
Can we give that which we do not possess?
 
To suppose so is hypocrisy, a thing to be shunned.
 
Jesus tears the mantle of unreality from the shoulders of hypocrisy, winnowing from the soul of sham and shallowness its last shred of illusion.
 
Pearls and Swine
The sacredness of Truth is given value by the teaching that we should not cast pearls before swine.
 
Spiritual truths cannot be taught to those who will not accept them. The wisdom of this world is foolishness to a greater wisdom; and the wisdom of Spirit is often overlooked by human foolishness.
 
We should not forget that Jesus was an illumined soul; he saw clearly that which we only look for. This is why he spoke as one having authority. Since he was able to prove his wisdom by his works we shall do well to accept his teaching.
We cannot see reality until our eyes are open; until the light of eternal Truth has struck deeply into OUR own souls.
 
There is neither strain, concentration, nor any particular effort of the will needed in doing this, but there must be a careful weeding out of negative thoughts; and there should be a great sense of joy and thanksgiving, and an enthusiastic acceptancy as we wait for the certain harvest.

Food for Thought...

What is the Meaning of Life?
This earthly world is a place of spiritual training for the soul and spiritual development is the purpose and meaning of human life. God (Buddha) created the Great Cosmos with the objectives of "progress" and "harmony," and these are the guidelines for the evolution of the human soul. God (Buddha) has created the system of reincarnation between this world and the Spirit World (Real World) so that we can cultivate infinite experience and walk ever closer to God (Buddha).
 
"You are born on this Earth once every few hundred or few thousand years so that you may work with many types of people in new circumstances to refine your soul further. Life on this Earth is not necessarily filled with good experiences, but before you were born, you all knew this."
  From the book: Invincible Thinking
 
Human beings are children of God (Buddha)
Humans are spiritual beings that possess eternal life and go through countless reincarnations. The human soul was created by branching off from God (Buddha), so a Divine nature or Buddha-nature dwells in every soul. Hence all human beings are children of God (Buddha).
 
The mind is everything
Humans are spiritual beings and the mind is our essence. We are undergoing spiritual training to polish our mind and return to the Spirit World with a higher state of mind and level of awareness. Everything is subject to the cause of law and effect so when we change our thoughts and our state of mind, our human relationships, health and financial circumstances change too. The causes of pain and suffering do not lie with others or the outside world but are actually created by ourselves. Therefore, we need to reflect on our thoughts and deeds and correct them through our own effort.
 
Life is a Workbook of Problems to be Solved
Everyone experiences troubles and hardships as a part of living in this world. We all would like to avoid them if possible. However, in the process of solving our problems in life, the soul acquires various experiences and learns many different lessons. These experiences and lessons are nourishment for the soul's growth.
 
The world is a ground for spiritual training
This earthly world is a training place for our souls, because we go through experiences we would not be able to go through whilst living in the Spirit World. Life in the Spirit World is strictly governed by "The Laws of Vibration", therefore, only souls that share the same wavelength can reside in the same realm. Although the heavenly world, from which we reincarnate, is a wonderful world overflowing with love, harmony and happiness, it does not provide the soul with many opportunities for progress. It is when a soul is placed in adverse circumstances that it can discipline itself, correct its misguided tendencies and make progress. That is why we periodically reincarnate to the earthly world, where people, whose wavelengths do not match, can gather together and refine their souls. The earthly world is also a place where we can encounter great souls whom we would never meet in the Real World.
 
A soul draws up a Life Plan before it is born
Human souls draw up a life plan before being reincarnated on earth. We decide in advance on the best environment for our own spiritual development, on such things as the country where we will be born, our language, family environment, financial circumstances, religion, education and occupation. We are confronted with human relationships and various troubles on earth but all these things are what we have planned for ourselves. Accordingly, when human relationships are at the root of our suffering, it is ourselves who decided to set these problems in our life plan. Sometimes people think that a husband and wife are not well-suited but, from a spiritual perspective, in fact it is the best possible pairing for their spiritual development. Couples are born promised to one another in order that they may learn a lot from their mutual differences.
 
Suffering, hardships and difficulties are opportunities for growth
Once we are aware that "life is a workbook" there is no longer any need to lament "why do I have to be put through this?" when confronted with difficulties and hardships. Instead, since these are opportunities for learning, we come to ask ourselves what it is that we can learn from them. Suffering is an opportunity to reflect on the mistakes of our own mind and to reform ourselves. At such times it is important to have knowledge of the Truth - the teachings which represent God's (Buddha's) mind, and to practice self-reflection. The scriptures of God's (Buddha's) Truth are reference books given to us by God (Buddha) for solving "the workbook known as life." The learning distilled from the experience of overcoming suffering becomes "wisdom." Increased enlightenment is actually the purpose of life. Knowing that "life is a workbook" is the first step towards enlightenment as we can understand that the difficulties and hardships of this world are not substantial but are opportunities for our personal growth. In this way, even in suffering, hardship and difficulties we can find the seeds of happiness.
