“You must build up by faithful daily exercise, the true Love consciousness, and all the rest of spiritual development will follow upon that. Love will heal you. Love will illumine you.”
“This extraordinary Power, Mystical Teachings Of Jesus though I have rightly called it, is nevertheless very real, no mere imaginary abstraction, but actually the most practical thing there is. The existence of this Power is already well known to thousands of people in the world today, and has been known to certain enlightened souls for tens of thousands of years. This Power is really no less than the primal Power of Being, and to discover that Power is the Divine birthright of all people. It is your right and your privilege to make your contact with this Power, and to allow it to work through your body, mind, and estate, so that you need no longer grovel upon the ground amid limitations and difficulties, but can soar up on wings like an eagle to the realm of dominion and joy.” ~Emmet Fox
This is the truth that the great mystics of the past Jesus, Buddha Gita, knew and embodied. It is also true of the mystics in the new thought movement. People like Emmet Fox, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Emerson and Holmes to name a few and it is still true of the mystics today which are many ordinary people like you and me that just quietly go along with their day embodying love being unconditionally loving to themselves and others. Knowing the truth is that love/God/Spirit is everywhere present in everyone and every situation despite what we might perceive. A mystic knows this presence and experiences love in all things. A mystic experiences this in their heart and soul not just knowing about it in their intellect. It’s the principle of our existence. We need love in order to thrive and it is our inherent nature to be loving. Love is an intention, our true power, what inspires us and what evolves us to a higher consciousness. Having the desire, the intention to put love first in our life vs. focusing on what is problem is when miracles happen. Where does the emotion of love live? In our heart.
I had the good fortune to attend a conference a few years ago and one of the speakers was a man named Dr. Budri Rickhi who is head of psychiatry at the University of Calgary. This man, though a bit of an anomaly in the medical world and with his colleagues even though he is highly esteemed they see him as a bit out there. He himself is a mystic, he meditates an hour each morning and evening and he is one of the most tuned in loving human beings I have ever met. Being in his presence you know you are in the presence of the Divine.
The title of his talk was; Is the cranial brain the only brain in the body?
