The Seven Main Aspects of God: #7 - Principle
This week we conclude our journey through Emmet Fox's "The Seven Main Aspects of God", with a look at God as Principle- Absolute, Unchanged, Unchanging, Unchangeable. We align ourselves with this ever-dependable Source, meeting each of our human obstables with the aspect of Divinity which will be most helpful in any given moment or situation.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #6 - Spirit
We are told that "God is Spirit" - Omnipresence, Omniscience, Omnipotence - all Knowing, all Power, everywhere present. Learning to trust Spirit, instead of the outer-based evidence of our eyes, ears, nose, fingers, etc., can be very challenging. This, however, is how we learn to recognized the Kingdom of the Heavens in our midst.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #5 - Soul (Individuality)
We are the Divine Life of the Univers expressing, AND we are also fully human, with personalities which encompass the sum total of our consciousness and our subconsconsciousness. Our journey is one of integration and awareness, learning to bring our spirituality into ever-greater expression through our humanity. Like many things along the spiritual journey, it's not easy.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #4 - Intelligence (Wisdom - Intuition)
On Mother's Day, we invest a bit of time to the concept that EVERYONE - regardless of gender - is an expression of the creative, nurturing energy of the Universe. So Happy Mother's Day to YOU! Continuing with Emmet Fox's essay around the Seven Main Aspects of God, we look at what he terms "Intelligence", which is really wisdom.... intuition... the truly Divine Intelligence which is expressing as each one of us.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #3 - Love
Love is what we are. Love is what holds us together. Love is how we are to show up in the world. It's not necessarily what we think of first when we think of love, but it's what we are here to be.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #2 - Truth
Continuing our exploration of Emmet Fox's essay around the Seve Main Aspects of God, today we look at Truth: relative truth (aka "facts") and Absolute Truth. Facts - relative truth - changes. Absolute Truth is unchanged, unchanging, unchangeable. It is eternal, and we can count on it. We know Truth - Principle - Law - God is good-without-opposite. So our work is to know Truth wherever there seem to be "errors". Master Teacher Jesus taught that we should know the Truth and the Truth will make us free.
The Seven Main Aspects of God: #1- Life
New Thought teacher and writer Emmet Fox one of Nita's first spiritual teachers, through his book, The Sermon on the Mount. His writing is clear, it is concise, and his priority was always to teach how we put our New Thought principles into action in our day-to-day lives. If we are That-Which-is-Sometimes-Called-God in expression at the point we are (and we are!), then it will be very helpful to know what "That" is. Since God is indefineable, infinite, unlimited, and unable to be named or labeled, we can look at some of the main attributes within Spirit for guidance. Our first focal point is Life: God is Life.
Easter - White Stone Meditation
On Easter, we celebrate the rising of consciousness into the eternal Christ. There is no death! We honor our brother, Jesus, who did the work of leading us into this higher expression of Truth, and we allow ourselves to listen. What is ours to do?
Palm Sunday - Meditation for Peace (with gongs)
Today, we honored Jesus' entry to Jerusalem with a meditation for peace. Our good friend, Teri Wilder, was with us today, and provided the opening gong sequence.
Whatever the obstacles or challenges in our lives, there is a path of overcoming. When we are able to put aside our human fears, worries, doubts, concerns, and all of the other mental games which keep us from our Good, we are able to perceive that Omnipresence of Infinite Good. We are able to rest, and know that all is well.
