I am an Essene Christian ( read as Esoteric rather then Exoteric) referencing the teachings of Dr Stylianos Atteshlis (aka Daskalos)
“No pain lasts for ever and no joy lasts forever …if this were not so then our purpose (as Human Beings) within the Divine Plan would not exist.
Or as the ancient wisdom of the ICHING says the same ….”The corresponding side of peace is Stagnation…..it is the tension on the string of the violin that allows it to make beautiful music” ( or not so beautiful as the case may be )
ad as the DAILy Word to-day said
What would it be to awaken to a day devoted to gratitude, a day of thankfulness for what was and yet will be? Grateful for this life in which we have been feeling our way toward the truth.
(PHOTO BY GORAN HORVAT)
“feeling our way toward the truth.” is what we Humans are …in the Divine Plan
“Wholeheartedly”To Whom? To What? “Absoltute Infinite Beingness” ( aka “God” “everlasting Love, Life , and Mercy )
A poem about sufficiency
If you want what
the material world offers
You are an employee.
I you want the unseen
You’re not living you Truth.
Both wishes are foolish
But you will be
forgiven for forgetting
what you really want
Is Loves confusing JOY!
In the evening, before retiring , when the egoism’s are tired of themselves and won’t interfere with your True Self ( Soul , which never get tired ) as a Soul , and nothing else, quietly review the days activities , start to finish, as you do ask the following questions ….and by prepared for the honest Soul-full replies !
What did I think or feel that I should not have thought or felt?
What did I not think or feel that I should have thought or felt?
What did I say that I should not have said?
What did I not say that I should have said?
What did I do that I should not have done?
What did I not do that I should have done?
My bodies ( yes plural) are, as Joshua Emmanuel reminded us, IS the entrance / gateway / to “The Kingdoms of the Heaven within”. And although it is not “mine” but rather the Archangels of the Elements …but,.they allow me to call it “mine”.!
In return “my bodies” are an opportunity for me to show my GREATFULNESS to the Archangels, the Holy Spirit and the Logos ( and all within the Divine Plan ) by treating it with Loving respect ….making their work easier. ( not to m...
In return “my bodies” are an opportunity for me to show my GREATFULNESS to the Archangels, the Holy Spirit and the Logos ( and all within the Divine Plan ) by treating it with Loving respect ….making their work easier. ( not to mention the internal work I must / shall / be doing to open to “fuller” conscious awareness ).
The ‘Situation Analysis’ aspect of my cast ICHING Hexagram this morning expresses my Intention to-day and every day …not random intentions / acts / initially…but,…… it will progress into random acts kindness as well, naturally, if I stay on course with it.

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.
By making each day a “I promise to love and serve” and following it up with mediation, contemplation, introspection at the end of the day to check that I have or again “promise to myself”, that I will make the necessary adjustment and corrections where and as required.
By “promising to myself” I take full responsibility of my thoughts, desires, words and action, , by full, head-on recall, and then checking and acknowledging if they were harmonious and , once again promising...
By “promising to myself” I take full responsibility of my thoughts, desires, words and action, , by full, head-on recall, and then checking and acknowledging if they were harmonious and , once again promising to myself, to make corrections as required. ( BUT not done in a masochistic way….only with responsible intentions.) It is a never ending process of refining and knowing my true Self …not my temporary present – day self .
This, which can be found on to-days BLOG at Gratefulness.org
Words, spoken out loud or as thoughts along, are all the emanation of Mind. Mind is Holy, it is a Divine Gift, it has the potential to beauty or pain. By practicing honest introspection of all thought and words at the end of each day one can see for oneself what as what wrt “wholeheartedness”. and make the necessary changes.
That end of the day “Intension” practice is what cause the evolution into what one can honestly call “Whole heartedness”.

As a Researcher of Truth the 3 promises …..3) To make good use of the Divine Gifts of thought and word at all times, in all places and under all circumstances.
I AM a Human BE-ing, I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing,I AM a Human BE-ing no matter what else happen to me!
Peace is present …alway and all times.. There is a name given to it “The Kingdom of Heaven within you” It is a matter of awareness of that state of Presence and BE-ing it. BE-ing enquires vigilance and sincerity ( As in the parable of the 5 Wise and 5 Unwise Birdes maids )
Another tradition the ICHING identifies a way of entering that presence , The kingdom of Heaven.
The ICHING calls it “expansion”

42 – Forty-Two
I / Expansion
Whirlwinds and Thunder:
When the Superior Person encounters saintly behavior, he adopts it; when he encounters a fault within, he transforms it.
Progress in every endeavor.
You may cross to the far shore.
Get ready to ride a tide of accelerated growth toward self-actualization.
A joyful awareness of the best within you, coupled with an acceptance of your Shadow, will provide a greater repertoire, a much bolder vision, and new depth and clarity that will compel you to expand your horizons.
“Few things matter much and most things don’t matter at all”
( Daskalos , at the age of seven )
Mary the mother of Joshua Emanuel.
There would have had to be a presence powerful enough to be considered “True Humility” about her such that the oppressors of the teaching of her son didn’t want ( so should it be said “dare to”? ) to persecute and execute her as they did so many others.
This came to me this morning by way of the ICHING Hexagram Twenty-FivePlow your field for a field well-plowed, not for possible harvests.
Clear the wasteland for land well-cleared, not for potential rich fields.Such guileless enterprise can’t help but succeed.
and the other version of this is, of course, the British saying…….
” The road to hell is paved with good intentions ”
well worth the watching this TED . It encompassed the subject “how life should be” very well!
And You are welcome Carla N.
Your “PS” message is a wonderful example of what is often called “Blessings” ( but unfortunately all too often “Blessings” have become identified with “Religious “practices”” only )
But Blessings are Blessings . Anyone can emanate them …they can be written, spoken out loud or given in silence to strangers ….and this will become “connected” or “received” ...
But Blessings are Blessings . Anyone can emanate them …they can be written, spoken out loud or given in silence to strangers ….and this will become “connected” or “received” when that person/persons resonate at the frequency to which that Blessing was given out.
What better “Random act of Kindness” is there then a “Gentle Blessing”?
I use a particularly powerful source when giving written or spoken “Blessings” …below is but one example of that source below.
Blessing 301 “See Through Appearances”
( from 365 Blessings – by Pierre Pradervand )
More and more people are becoming aware that we live in a world of illusion – that the material world – and that beyond the veil of appearances there is the reality of such awesome beauty, harmony and depth that once one has tasted it, no human experience can even remotely compare with this true world.
I bless myself as love’s gentle smile on every living being.
My I have the depth spiritual insight that sees through all material appearances.
My I have the spiritual strength and clarity to discern the Divine beyond even the most horrendous human form / actions / re-actions ( etc. ect. )
May I understand that absolutely all that enters my life is Infinite Love and its infinite manifestation for the Godhead truly is All-in-all.
And as I rise rewarding and rejoice that I am Your radiant goodness and beauty in ecstatic expression for all those I meet.
And I turn your, “Greetings & wishes of rest & rejuvenation” to you Ten Fold , Carla N , and all others here as well!
Be Well Be Present
As the ancient wise ones taught,
“See that in your personality there is nothing like hatred, even a complaint, because, near the roots of the tree of hatred the serpent of complaint is coiled.
Yes Wiltrud //…that was an easy question to reply too!
We have come to the conclusion. What’s the Reality? Your Spirit Ego-Self, your I-ness, a human being in expression and God in nature (because, our nature is divine and our expression is human).
You are welcome Ron and Thank You for your song and thoughts here.
As a Essene Christian I pay particular attention to exercises which highlight the heart “centre” because it is central to our Being-ness, It is a touch point from which to serve humanity. Just before I read your note here I completed one of our exercises which Joshua Emmanuel had given specifically for serving humanity. I will share it here in words,, [ in brackets indicate time in minutes ]
relax, ……..… Take deep breaths… And feel being in your whole body.
[2; 00] This body is yours [but] not you,
Christ said “Your body is yours but it is not to you. The Holy Archangels and the Holy Spirit are sustaining it now. And they give you the right to use it as your own.
It is the temple of God…… and you’re Being Self. Ensure that this temple of God has [within it] congregations of Angelic elementals”…..[4:32]
Take away from this temple all human demons as elementals….Jealousy,… evil behavior,….. Weaknesses, unbridled desires and emotions, anger… and fear.
From this temple take away any evil or negative elementals you may find. [5;50]
Keep as a congregation in this temple, in your body [only] Human Angels, good elementals.
Create good elementals, only good elementals, in the light of love…….[6; 50]
In every temple there is a Holy of holies…..
Make your heart The Holy of holies…….. Of God.
In the Holy of holies there is the…. altar……. make it in your heart……. [8; 00]
On the altar there is the inextinguishable life light ..
.the Holy Archangels have lite it in your heart………….
You are in it…it is the pulse of life.
Now you will lite a second wick in the lamp of your heart [it is] your personality’s love to God and to all human beings around you…[ promise # 5 ]…[10; 00]
Do it now……………..
Live with these two flames of light in the lamp on the alter of your heart.
Love to God and love to all human beings..[11; 00]
They are two flames in one. [11; 30]
These two flames become as big like an ocean …pause.…showing you the way to him……….[12;20]
Don’t allow that flame to flicker…..
keep it straight and bright on the altar in your heart.
Keep it there always…………………… … long pause………..[13;26]
Take your time to feel more and more your material body again.
