The tree of humanity has one seed, God, the Supreme Soul, who stays eternally full of all divine qualities that are originally ours.
As children of the one Seed, all souls are spiritually related. By making a subtle shift from an outer, material consciousness to an inner, spiritual consciousness, we once again realise our true selves and God, and move towards our nature of peace, respect and love.
The process begins at the personal level and will eventually lead to a shift from a world torn apart by anger, dependency, arrogance, greed and lust to a kinder, gentler world with only the finest in human virtues – happiness, love, peace and purity.

Cultivating Your Inner Diamond
The world, as a world...has lost its ideal. Man may not have the same
idea. Man-all men-may have the same ideal!...that can only come with
all having the one ideal; not the one idea, but "Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thine heart, thy neighbor as thyself!"
This [is] the whole law, this [is] the whole answer to the world, to
each and every soul. That is the answer to the world conditions as they

of increasing inner knowing and expanding. It is an innate
aspect of being human. While spirituality is our core essence

faculties and intelligence. When we are more actively
engaged with our inner evolution, we
open ourselves to gifts of the Soul whose life comes from
attentive connection with the Spirit in Nature and in the aspiration for a Higher Power. Grace Bestowed!
When the Soul leads, spiritual ideals enter the mind
and we guided to cultivate a personal masterpiece. Spiritual
ideals shape our very lives, our experiences,
and even inspires who we are becoming. In-spiriting is
a motivating pattern that guides our lives and can provide
our inner call. When we are in its motivating influence
the intention of the ideal activates every cell in the
creating shifts on multiple levels. Since mind is the builder
through focused attention, we are led by the spirit we
are entertaining. We either live by the luminous light
of Love, Wisdom and Intelligence of the Spirit in Nature
or we fall sway to the
default pattern of the Archontic dark
of fear and ignorance. Connecting
with the Spirit in Nature is the fastest and only true path
to Beauty, as She is our most immediate and immanent Source.

necessitates frequent activity
in our lives - one in which we are challenged, encouraged,
even prodded to cultivate our "inner diamond." Everyone
works with ideals, even if it is unconscious. This makes
it ever important to be conscious of what we are building
within ourselves because ultimately we'll
have the chance to meet it. We might choose a quality or
attribute that is currently missing or lacking in our own
life in our relationships with others.

Seven Hearts of Consciousness
vs. Religion = Knowing vs. Faith
term religion is quite inadequate to describe the reciprocal
bond and accessible intimacy between mankind and the Creator.
The term religion is a term of falsehood and exile produced
our disconnect, and the expelling of the Divine feminine
(Sheckina) as a byproduct of our building collective
egos. In place of this bond we build "foreign God"
paradigms that serve our cultural collective and individual
egos, fetishes of control and power. These virtual/ synthetic
gods are projections of mankinds deficiencies and serve the
ego's dysfunction. Instead humanity should focus on the
that they are gifted with the spiritual technology for correcting
themselves to draw intimately closer to all.

It is love that quickens the heart or self of another and love

It is the same process and comes with the expansion of heart.

situation. We hold gratitude for the benefits we have received
when we confront, up close, the enormous pain others
forced to endure. Perhaps ones heart does not automatically
leap forth to respond because it is trapped in the
life of conditional love operating in assumptions. There
is more trust with the head, rather than trust of
the heart, which is solely a defense mechansism for
lack of spiritual discrimination. However, I believe
since humanity has been resonating

many techniques and methods for developing spiritual compassion,
all of which can be useful under different circumstances and for
different purposes. The simplest one is to pause and reflect
how it would be to be in the other person's mind and body: what
would it feel like to be him/her? Another arises from nurturing
a personal relationship with a person you care for. We can cultivate
compassion for different people and circumstances. We can generate
compassion for ourselves. We can generate compassion for Nature.
Humans are part of Nature. We can generate compassion for those we oppose. This does
not mean that we are to compromise integrity or our position on
certain matters. There is no compassion for those who are a
threat to our sovereign conscience and connection with Nature,
the problem is approached with dispassionate action.

Four Stages of Forgiveness
from the Past
does not matter whether you are a theist or atheist, what
matters is sincerity, forgiveness, and compassion.
Holiness the Dalai Lama
Forego-leave it alone
2. Forbear-abstain from punishing
3. Forget-avert from memory, refuse to dwell
4. Forgive-abandon the debt
four stages of forgiveness is a practice in retention.
When we forego something, we refuse through choice not
out of denial to eliminate the mind from wrapping around
the object of our attention or obsession. We leave it
alone. When we forbear we take no part in punishing
or blaming self or others, and we no longer need to
defend our hearts or be overly suspicious of people,
because we have learned to take self-responsibility.
When we forget or use retentive memory in our refusal
to dwell on things that offers no solution for change
or that self-limits, we choose to avert our memory to
more constructive ends. When we forgive, we let go of
the resentment of injury done to us and we forgive ourselves
and others. We literally abandon retribution and the
weight of debt. We free ourselves from the grievance
story of the past as we discharge the emotional binding,
although we can recall our memories when needed. Moving
on allows our awareness to be present and our grievance
story to reflect our honorable choice to forgive.

many conveniences that are so often taken for granted. A flip
of a switch provides illumination. A turn of a knob provides
heat for cooking. A turn of a handle provides fresh water
from a faucet. A flush of a toilet provides sanitation and
convenience. We used to light candles for illumination. We
used to build fires for cooking. We used to transport water
from outside to sources to our abodes. We used to use chamber
pots and outhouses. So much for technology.

without the afore said physical gifts or live in a civilization

you do the following. Close your eyes and picture all the
wonderful things you possess; spiritual, physical, and material
that are simple in nature, but that which make you whole.
Then picture yourself without them..
Gratitude is the conscious
recognition of those basic things we are blessed with yet
take for granted. One way we thank our Higher Power for
these gifts is to treat our body as the temple it is so
we can continue our journey to ascension.

The Gentle Art of Blessing
Receiving Nature's Grace
comes from Living in the Flow
journey to Divine Grace is entirely personal. It emanates from
deep desire, often as a need for help, as life no longer seems
to be working with us. We feel trapped and whatever we do through
the ego creates painful outcomes.
The conflict in our lives tells us that we are not in alignment
with our Essential Self...that we have side stepped the Spirit in Nature and thus,
are out of flow with Divine rhythm. Yet, our invocation is heard and our indwelling higher force that fills us with a special strength of Grace guides us to right process. Grace asks us to surrender our egoic will to the higher
of Spiritual alignment so that we may attune to Singularity - the undivided
stream of Source. Such surrendering in Trust of
rather than the ego-will-to-be-done, uplifts the personality into
reorientation towards material Soul awareness. Our inner strength surfaces
into conviction and correction towards right process. From a different
vector of perception, we
see with renewed awareness how struggles are
guideposts that point where we are out of alignment and to make the necessary adjustments for a better life.
Grace or direct impulse received from Spirit acts mystically
in our Soul.
This gift of blessed influence transforms our whole being at the
most radical level. While Grace is always available to us, we
not always appropriate it. We must invoke it and accept to receive
it in the instant of our asking. In the winds of change we find our true direction. I tell
story of Grace below.
afternoon, I took a jog to clear my head and rethink my life

misusing my divine endowments and wanted to change my life, but
needed a jump-start to move forward by

while invoking Spirits help from the core of my being. I surrendered
my personal will and the response I received was felt as a strong
stream of directed loving force that suddenly filled me while
quickening my consciousness, heightening
my self awareness and sense of participation with the Universe—I
experienced a direct communion with a Higher Power. The sluice
gates of my Soul
opened and Grace amazingly poured in overwhelming me with beneficent
power. I was made whole from my conflict and inner resistances,
the humble Grace of Higher Power flowed into me and directed me
towards right action.
later, as I struggled on the path of aligned focus towards
gnosis of spiritual matters and feeling an anxious quickening
of participation in Earth's correction, I questioned my
energy. Was I courageous enough to carry out the inner
message of my Soul in defending the good, the beautiful,
and the True?
Would anyone hear me? What was I to do and how was I to
achieve this fiery inner calling? I felt wholly
of such an abundant and divine favor that had taken possession
of me. I began to struggle with how and why I was chosen
become a recipient for Spirit's work. I wondered how I was
