Self-Mastery Poem

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

The thought of today can well become

   the lumber of your life tomorrow.

While an artisan is skilled in his craft,

   and whether it be of clay or with chisel,

   or in the use of brush and paint,

Yet man, as an artisan of his life

   knows little or nothing of his skill,

And in the acceptance of life,

   becomes less than that of the beggar’s bowl

   which is filled with all the trash thrown his way.

Let us not beggars be in life

   and take that which is of another man’s

   choosing or giving,

But let us find the rich rewards of our

   own seeking!

The victory of conquest is not found in

   climbing high mountains

   or conquering kingdoms,

But is the victory one attains over himself!

Neither shall he find the fruit of joy

   in bending others to his will

   or showing them the righteousness of his way,

But only that he becomes righteous

   in his own heart—

Remembering always that this righteousness

   is not dimmed by others’ troubles,

   nor of the ways of the world,

But adds only luster and brightness

   to all things.

It is written that in the Garden of Allah

   there are many kinds of fruits,

   nor are they hidden to those who seek,

Yet with all this that is to be seen,

   the brightest and sweetest fruits

   are often the most poisonous.

Yet the virtue of each fruit must, by necessity,

   be found through the eating,

For the poison is found only in its right season

   and in the way in which it is eaten.

And as it is thus consumed, each man finds,

   in his own way, its own antidote.

For it is also written that of Allah

   and all his gifts to man,

   that none becomes less nor more

   than the other.

India is a land of many kinds of people,

   both Buddhist and Mohammedan,

So why should a man be confined,

   except for the sake of his own beliefs

   to one or the other?

But if he reads and listens,

   he learns much of all things

   whether they are Buddhist or Mohammedan,

For in the eye of the Creator all things

   are equally important.

Whether they have different kinds of spires

   or steeples on their temples,

   or in the manner in which they stand

   before their altars,

It makes no difference to the one God.     
                                                          —Lao Tse

Timely Quote from Ernest L. Norman

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

This is from the Q and A section of a lecture given in 1961 by Ernest
Norman. Today we could substitute Al Qaeda, the Taliban, etc. for
Communism.

Student – “I was wondering if there is any danger of it [Communism] growing throughout the world?”

E.L. Norman – “You should be concerned only in this respect, in your
own personal way, because that is why we have Unarius. We want a
higher science of life; we want a higher understanding of life
because that puts us above the dimension of influences of Communism
or any other kind of ‘ism.’ If we understand what the Infinite is,
what our purpose is as regenerative entities of consciousness of the
Infinite, then we are above Communism; we do not have to subscribe
to any kind of a system. We are only subscribing to one system
itself and that is the life-giving principle of Infinity. Up until
now you have symbolized that as some configuration in a deistic
sense, but now, it is getting to the point where it is going to be
your own moral responsibility. Whether you say it is Communism or
whether it is any other particular ‘ism’ or ‘osm’ in the world,
you’re going to have to be selective on this basis–when you
understand or when you are beginning to understand the Infinite and
when you can sustain your evolution, you can put yourself above the
coercive or the dominating influences of these various dogmas or
ideologies, whatever they are, and in living above them, you
automatically become more creative. You can lend your hand, so to
speak, to others who are struggling through the same maze that you
went through, the same catacombs, the same labyrinth.”—from Tempus Invictus

Quote from Infinite Contact

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

“Life is infinite and you need not be emotionally concerned with the present moment because each moment is not valuable to you in terms of a long lifetime but only in the polarization derived and extracted from the various forms of expressive motion which are passing through these moments. For, in the future eons of time, your ability to live and function in a higher dimension or way of life will depend upon polarized abstractions of these experiences.”   –excerpted from the book Infinite Contact

Quote on Karmic Conditions

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

“There are no karmic conditions which cannot be healed when the person will realize it and when proper conditions of attunement are brought into play. There may be a thought pattern which may take you a while to wean yourself away from, but your true condition has been cancelled out immediately the moment you focus your mind upon it and realize what this psychic impingement is. It is cancelled because your super intelligence or the Infinite Mind Force comes into action, and with the aid of the savants or learned minds in the spiritual dimensions who are working with these things, these negations, they are instantly cancelled out. —Ernest Norman, Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation pg. 175, earlier editions

Quote from Ernest Norman

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

“We can never be healed from something, which we are subconsciously trying to hide from ourselves.  Only by bringing these fears out into the limelight of conscious objectivism, can we hope that the power of the superconsciousness or Christ-self can enter in and cancel them out.”

This was a quote from a reading given by Dr. Norman to a student.

Quote from Soulic Emancipation

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

“If you wish to become a part of this positive Brotherhood working for the benefit of humankind, here is where you should begin, in your own daily life.  It seems perhaps a small thing, a trivial matter, but it is not!  It is the small seed from whence great oaks shall grow.” —Soulic Emancipation, pg. 57

Song of Infinity

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Call me Infinity and I will come to you
in a thousand ways,
Call me Infinity and I will reign supreme
through all thy summer days,
Call me Infinity and I will bring you
winter’s cold and spring’s bright
blossom time,
I’ll hear your call from far away,
from far as the stars shall shine.
From life to life I’ll live with thee,
I’ll make thee bright and I’ll
make thee strong.

Though the winds may blow through the
winter’s snow,
Again you will hear my summer song,
for Infinity’s there—far beyond the
rainbow’s end,
Far beyond any time and place where
the song of the heart can send.

Infinity’s Voice is sung in countless ways,
It stretches from land to land, our planet’s
way round the sun and its long bright rays,
It reaches beyond where the galaxies shine,
or a universe’s endless space,
And it fills all the time and the spaces
in between,
And it binds with the time and its place.

So call me Infinity and with your heartthrob
I’ll send a beat and a tempo—
A long and endless song—a song that will
never end.

This poem is one that Uriel voices on the Light Through the Window CD.

Quote from Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

“You contain all the necessary ingredients of the Infinite Intelligence which can solve every one of your problems . . . There is nothing which remains unsolved or unsupported. You can tune into that vast tremendous power—that super intelligence within your own consciousness.” —Ernest L. Norman, Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation,  pg. 152

New Dawn

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

NEW DAWN

Now breaks a new and resplendent day

Not cluttered by the cares and woes of yesteryear

My heart doth sing the melody of love –

the song of creation

So carried by every breeze

across the meadow green.

To touch the heart of man

where ‘ere that he may be

To light the flame of life

Within the chalice of his soul.
