From Reverend David Phears – Sangha Center For Spiritual Living Huntington Beach California
How many of you feel that there is just too much love in the
world? Really – then how many of you would love to see more love expressed in
the world? Then have I got some good news for you – today is the beginning of
the era of love.
“The season of love begins today”
This whole month we’ll look at how we can see more love
showing up everywhere we look – not only in our lifetime but beginning right
here and right now.
After all to see the love that you want to experience, you
must realize that the experience of that love can and will only be experienced
by you. And you have everything; the ability and the tools to bring your
personal vision into your present experience.
Bottom line is that to experience this love = you and I have
to be the place where love happens. Because we are the only place where we can
ever truly experience the agape love of God.
“It’s an inside job”
And so this inner balance of love becomes a focal point of
contemplation. The key word here is balance, finding that place in your
everyday life flow to remember to go and be within. To choose from that place
of spiritual connection and enjoy the shift in your relationships as they
Today’s title is: Observation
For us to reach the pleasant, powerful prosperous state of
inner balance on a continuous basis – we must look at how we observe life
When my wife Michelle, and my daughter Davina and I are in
the airports or universal studios –however the Diaspora and mix of humanity is–
we people-watch, and in the process create positive scenarios about the lives
of the people we see. It’s fun and takes up the time but it doesn’t truly let us
in on the hearts of the folks; just our own observation/perceptions and conclusions.
Many people go through their own lives the same way in
reverse, they make choices, decisions and changes in alignment with what they
think other people are thinking about them. Living from the outside in.
Outside-in living is not natural. It might be the norm of
the herd, but living in reverse and expecting to arrive in a different place is
a set up for insanity and at worst a deep sense of intense separation.
Feeling separate is buying into an illusion. There can never
be anything separate form God, and God is all that there is, so it’s not the
reality of life that get’s in the way, it’s the un-clarity of the observation
that leads to a tainted conclusion and a rancid choice.
“Think before you stink”
S – separation
T – thinking
I – invariably infects
N – new
K – knowledge
All of this information – these spiritual tools – this
blessed philosophy is all about you – your inner life and getting clarity on
your best; your best life – best love best fun and best you.
These tools are like car wash… you drive up with the energy
of a thought that is worn, use and soiled, then run it through the spiritual
law with a wash of possibility, a scrub of determination, a rinse of gratitude,
some wax of highest good and you come out on the other side with clarity and
C – choose
L – love -
A – and
R – radiance
I – is
T – truly
Y – yours
I can see clearly; the fog of fear,
the smog of doubt and the mist of lack and limitation are gone. All that
remains in my life are love and all of the blessings that I can handle and
share – thank you God in me.
The essence of all life is god. This eternal ‘I am’ is all
that there is. This presence is the source and supply of all life. The external
weather itself is a product of this eternal energy. This energy is also within
me and all that I know and see – this energy – God – allows me to choose how to
deal with my inner weather, the climate of my daily living. Just like an
umbrella, sun screen or snow shoes does for external weather, I have the necessary
tools for thriving through any internal weather that shows up. I’ve got
headlights of faith to cut through any fog of fear and fresh breezes of
spiritual knowledge to dissipate any smog of doubt and windshield wipers of
love to erase all drops of lack and limitation. I am clear, yes I am clarity itself
right here and right now. Thank you God in me I let this thought fly free – and
so it is and so it is and so it is amen!
