Your Deepest Fear…

Posted by sibbia on July 18, 2007

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

These are two lines from a poem by Marianne Williamson.  Her words are a perfect addendum to the post below.

You Are God!

Posted by sibbia on July 18, 2007

I’ll say it again, you are God.  How can I make such an audacious claim?  Many of us recognize that the divine force is part of everything and resides in us as well, and yet don’t seek out the realization of that perfect divinity.

They may accept Jesus Christ as the son of God, without realizing that we are all sons and daughters of God, or remembering that Jesus said that we were to go forth and create even bigger works (miracles).  To the average man, this is an impossible, ludicrous statement.  Yet I remind you that we are made in God’s image and likeness and we are all an expression of only one divine force.

We are as the waves on top of the ocean — made in its image and likeness but lacking its full power and realization until we merge back to the source from which we came.  When we focus on God and God-like behavior, we are beginning that process of reconnection, for we have been surely told, “draw closer to God, and God draws closer to you.”

The highest aim of this blog is to help us realize and express our divinity.  This is the answer to any question we face, and the supply to our every need.  Everything I write, design, create and photograph is meant to inspire the very best in our nature.  Sharing and providing service to others helps strengthen my commitment to bringing light into world (starting with myself).

The more we recognize our own divinity, the stronger our faith becomes.  Fears vanish and our lives become more harmonious as we transcend the ego and align ourselves with the divine.

Piercing the veil of illusion that makes us believe we are seperate individuals removes selfishness and competition from our hearts and we being to understand our collective power.

Is this some lofty, difficult goal?  No.  Must we run off to the mountain top to meditate for ten years, forsaking all worldly concerns?  No, for how would we be of any use to others then?  When faced with a challenge, a crisis, temptation, dilemma… say to yourself simply:

Only that which is true of God is true of me for God and I are one.

Let this thought guide you, ask what God would do in that situation and do your best to behave in the same manner.  In that instance, you have reached toward God and God reaches back toward you.

There is only one thought that comes through me to share with everyone today and that is:

You Are God!

I am the artist; I am the Creator, and my life is as divine as I make it. 

See it, believe it, achieve it.

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 Five)

Posted by sibbia on July 10, 2007

One of the conditions that block the expression of the divine force inside us is our failure to embrace one simple virtue — forgiveness.

Forgiveness:

1. To give up resentment of.

                   2. To cease to feel resentment against.

The idea of a forgiving God is clear in the Scripture, “Thou art a God of forgiveness, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, and abounding in loving kindness. And Thou did not forsake them.” (Nehemiah 9:17)

This idea of forgiveness as a Divine virtue transcends any particular religion. It can be seen everywhere. A Muslim starts a prayer with: “In the name of Allah most gracious most merciful.”

The need for forgiveness also lies outside of any spiritual venue — physical ailments, psychological disorders, and great loss of life have all been tied to a lack of forgiveness.

That said, forgiveness should be a daily practice. It can be extremely healing and transformative. Forgiveness is another method for establishing divine order and, as such, helps to release any blocks which stop the flow of good into your life. In securing the good (blessings) we expect to receive, we must remember that achieving true faith, becoming more successful, and finding our place in the world is not an act of force. It is a quiet determination and desire for good which is allowed to guide all our actions. Allow this desire for good (in other words, success and blessings in all aspects of life) to permeate your being. Send that desire forth, expecting it to return to you in countless ways. Now knowing that we are all connected and that we reap what we sow, how could we wish anything but success for another?

Realize that your “enemy” is God, that your “competition” is God, that you are God and bless everyone in every situation that crosses your path. Affirm that everyone and everything ultimately works for your own success as you desire only the best for others. Do this several times a day until it takes hold in your spirit and watch it unfold in your life.

This one practice is more important than the other four covered in the Becoming a Divine Vessel series. It is transformative and if you are new to the practice of active forgiveness, you may be shocked at how much you have to forgive — broken promises, past relationships, family conflicts, competitors, childhood trauma… forgive them all, let them go and embrace the abundance of love and light that now comes into your life.
