Becoming A Divine Vessel (Summary)

Posted by sibbia on July 12, 2007

The Becoming a Divine Vessel series was presented with the goal of providing us the means to express the divine force inside us on a regular basis.

It is a five step program that is as simple or as complex as we choose to make it.  Any one step can bring great change into our lives if we focus on it with diligent attention.  As a group, they encompass the spiritual Laws necessary to bring us closer to God and reflect God’s light and power into the world.

It is also important to note that these Laws are not only a foundation for spiritual success; they are key to our material success and manifestation as well.  When we realize the Divine plan for our life is whole and perfect, we are content to accept only that which is God’s will for us.  This frees us from envy, fear, worry and doubt, and this freedom opens the channels for the abundant, Universal supply to flow to and through us. 

To review, the five steps that were given to us are:
 
1. Listen to the Quiet Voice — Seek God’s guidance.  Trust in more than your mind and your senses.  Allow the answer, idea, or help you need to come to you.  Expect it without fear or worry and it will be so.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. – Psalm 32:8
 
2.  Learn to Nurture — Make caring and kindness part of your nature.  Start in small ways and expand on it.  Dedicate yourself to caring for something from thought to finish, remembering you reap what you sow.
 
3.  Be Creative — A hallmark of God’s nature, creation.  Develop creativity as you would a muscle.  Train it exercise it, and use it daily so that it will be there to serve you when you really need it.
 
4.  Establish Order — Refuse to let chaos rule in your thoughts or your surroundings.  Pay strict attention to your thoughts, words, and the things you allow to influence you — your surroundings, choice of books, music, movies, etc.
 
5.  Forgiveness — Let go and let God.  Reconcile yourself with the things of your past.  Hold no resentment or ill will towards another being.  Instead send forth love so that love may return to you.

May these words help to guide you along your path!

The Divine in me recognizes and celebrates the Divine in you,

Becoming A Divine Vessel (Part Four)

Establish Order

It is a scientific fact that everything tends toward entropy. Rare is the student who successfully completes a course in thermodynamics without being able to tell you that entropy never decreases – it increases or, at best, remains the same. This is essential information for studying and predicting the behavior of many systems — and a completely man made phenomena.

“I shall never believe that God plays dice with the world,” said Albert Einstein and the author agrees with him. In fact, there’s no evidence to suggest it.

Nature is a complex, balanced system with built in checks and balances and a high degree of order. If examined, one will find symmetry in plants, species whose survival depends on another, and patterns throughout nature.

To bring ourselves closer to God and express the divine force inside us, we should also create order, and the place to start is in our own lives.

As Within, So Without

In many ways our external environment is nothing but a reflection of the state of our mind and heart. Turbulent, violent or conflicting emotions, scattered thoughts, half finished plans and abandoned goals all find a physical means to express themselves in our life. Prayer, meditation, conscious breathing… all techniques that promote stillness and reduce mental clutter are helpful but not complete by themselves.

As Without, So Within

To clear our mind and clear the way for blessings, we should clear up the physical space around us. Invite divine order into your life as you bring order to the space around you. Make a special point to clear out spaces that haven’t been touched for some time — closets, attics, basements, and garages. Remove things you no longer want or use, give them away if possible (and practical), throw them away otherwise. While you do this repeat to yourself that you are clearing the way for your blessings to flow into your life. Be sure to recognize and acknowledge them as they come. Now give thanks and enjoy the benefits of the energy that can now flow freely around you!
