At our beginning on earth we come as pure, clean canvasses. As our own artist, we fill up our canvas with impressions from living. Some impressions we retain because they are beautiful to the inner eye, our conscience. Ideally, other aspects we refine until the entire canvas is a completely balanced, beautiful, inspiring masterpiece.
The blank canvas was clear, but by our good deeds and expanded consciousness the completed masterpiece is radiant.
1. The Golden Rule: Treat others as we would like to be treated. This means to harm no one by words, deeds, or even thoughts. Thought vibrations travel between us over unseen pathways, as the law of this universe is that for every action there is a comparable reaction. When we initiate good acts, our reward is that good experiences happen to us.
Initiate an evil or negative thought, word, or deed, and the reward will bounce back as an unhappy or painful event. Like for like. In this light, if we keep a positive attitude and help as opportunity arises, we will feel good in the moment and set the stage for further positive happenings.
2. Meditation: A still body helps quiet our mind. In the quiet of meditation we come to observe an inner vibration apart from our physical sense of hearing, and apart from our thoughts. Tuning in to this always present, constant, self-sustaining vibration calms us even more.
The peace attained by observing this inner sound allows our mind to become very calm. Then we are able to listen to our inner voice of conscience which knows right from wrong, and what is for the highest good of all concerned in our present dilemma.
By following the golden rule and meditating, we set the stage for our balanced development, and add to the beauty of the masterpiece of our lives that we are creating.
Why do we visit earth?
As immortal souls we enter these bodies
Filled with vibrant energy
Growing in lovingness
Experiencing our harmonious place in creation.
Then, sliding out
We rejoin our Creator-Sustainer once again
Able to enjoy the fullness of our eternal home
We ventured from as babes.
