The Awareness of Presence




 

The Awareness of Presence

Silence is not merely the absence of internal and external noise.
Within the stillness arises our awareness of presence.

We can feel presence in an empty cathedral, 
or standing in a mountain forest, 
or in an open meadow at sunset
as the stars begin twinkling 
while the echo of whip-o-will
dances across the woodland valley. …

In the Celtic lands, these are called thin places…
The silence brings us into a stillness where we are able to become aware
of the presence of eternity all around us. An awareness of seeing that everything is
connected, everything is interwoven, and everything belongs. 

Silence brings us to our senses, and stillness brings us home.

He leads me beside the still waters,
He restores my soul. 
~ Psalm 23:2

High recognitions . . . the “why” behind the suffering… over which humanity moans today.

“Only the knowledge of repeated earthly lives sheds light on and explains
the “why” behind the abundant suffering and apparent injustices,
over which humanity moans today. Blind faith and doubts of the infallible
justice of God only increase the burden of guilt that each one carries.
He who wants to find salvation must recognize the truth.
There is no other way.”

– Roselis von Sass
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

“Today the event at the Pentecost recurs.
A yearly recurrence.
May we open ourselves enough to experience it
as Jesus’ disciples did:
THE OUTPOURING OF POWER BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
FOR THE RENEWAL OF CREATION”

~ Edmund Mezue.

This room, the holy of holies, is a sanctuary of light.”

#High recognitions . . . What we call our destiny

16406522_1567305529950920_7644962476926915069_n

“What we call our destiny is truly our character
and that character can be altered.
The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes
does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny.
One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background.
All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us.
We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

~ Anaïs Nin (shared by Éva Patus)

“If you use your mind, time and energy to cause harm to anyone,
the pendulum will sooner or later move in your direction.
Spiritually you will be held accountable for what you do.”

Valkyrie derives from Old Norse
and it means “Chooser of the slain.”
Valkyries brought the souls
of those who died bravely in battle to Valhalla.
They were also known as Swan Maidens.
