PEACE and ALOHA!
Welcome sweet ones, it gives us great pleasure to be with you in this month of August as you move into the Solar Eclipse passage on August 21st. Having passed through the 08-08 Lion’s Gateway and received the deepest levels of Divine Love through the Vortex of the Goddess that you are able to feel and experience in this Now, you are ready to accelerate your service work, your mission upon this sacred earth….
Spurious things have no value, whether they be bric-a-brac or men.
It is all-important that we be real; that we harbour no wish to appear other than what
we are; that we simulate no virtue, assume no excellency, adopt no disguise. The
hypocrite thinks he can hoodwink the world and the eternal law of the world. There is
but one person that he hoodwinks, and that is himself, and for that the law of the
world inflicts its righteous penalty. There is an old theory that the excessively wicked are
annihilated. I think to be a pretender is to come as near to annihilation as a man can get, for
there is a sense in which a man is gone, and in his place there is but a mirage of shams.
Constant judging is exhausting. As I let go the need to judge, I let go the need of others telling me what I should or shouldn’t do, and what I should or shouldn’t be.

Intention aligns me to the Creative Force that draws from me, like water from a well, the depths of self expression.
Whenever we notice the presence of our awareness – that thing inside that is having an experience right now – we are touching our enlightenment. Self-recognition is the starting place of enlightenment, of freedom.
The might of meekness!
The man who conquers another by force is strong; the man who conquers himself by Meekness is mighty. He who conquers another by force will himself likewise be conquered; he who conquers himself by Meekness will never be overthrown, for the human cannot overcome the divine. The meek man is triumphant in defeat. Socrates lives the more by being put to death; in the crucified Jesus the risen Christ is revealed; and Stephen, in receiving his stoning, defies the hurting power of stones. That which is real cannot be destroyed, but only that which is unreal. When a man finds that within him which is real, which is constant, abiding, changeless, and eternal, he enters into that Reality, and becomes meek. All the powers of darkness will come against him, but they will do him no hurt, and will at last depart from him.
In the silence of this new day,
I come to ask for PEACE, WISDOM, and STRENGTH.
Today, I wish to look at the world
With eyes beaming with love.
To be understanding, meek, and wise.
To see your children beyond appearances
As You see them yourself.
Close my ears to all calumny.
The law which punishes us is the law which preserves us.
When in their ignorance men would destroy themselves, its everlasting arms are thrown about them in loving, albeit sometimes painful, protection. Every pain we suffer brings us nearer to the knowledge of the Divine Wisdom. Every blessedness we enjoy speaks to us of the perfection of the Great Law, and of the fullness of bliss that shall be man’s when he has come to his heritage of divine knowledge. We progress by learning, and we learn, up to a certain point, by suffering. When the heart is mellowed by love, the law of love is perceived in all its wonderful kindness; when wisdom is acquired, peace is assured. We cannot alter the law of things, which is of sublime perfection, but we can alter ourselves so as to comprehend more and more of that perfection, and make its grandeur ours.
The silent, calm people will manifest a more enduring form of success than those who are noisy and restless.
When a man exchanges coppers for silver, and silver for gold, he does not thereby give up the use of money; he exchanges a heavy mass for one that is lighter and smaller but more valuable. So when a man exchanges hurry for deliberation, and deliberation for calmness, he does not give up effort, he merely exchanges a diffusive and more or less ineffective energy for a more highly concentrated, effective, and valuable form. Yet even the crudest forms of effort are necessary at first, for without them to begin with the higher forms could not be acquired. The child must crawl before it can walk; it must babble before it can talk; it must talk before it can compose. Man begins in weakness and ends in strength, but from beginning to end he advances by the efforts he makes, by the exertion he puts forth.
In order to achieve the higher forms of success, a man must give up anxiety, hurry, and fussiness.
Pressing forward persistently along a given way is sure to lead to a destination that is definitely associated with that way. Frequent going aside, or turning back, will render effort fruitless; no destination will be reached; success will remain afar off. Effort, and the more effort, and then effort again, is the keynote of success. As the simple old saying has it: “If at first you don’t succeed, Try again.” All the precepts of successful business men are precepts of doing; all the precepts of the wise teachers are precepts of doing. To cease to do is to cease to be of any use in the economy of life. Doing means effort, exertion.
Without exertion nothing can be accomplished.
Be still, my soul, and know that peace is thine. Be steadfast, heart, and know that strength divine Belongs to thee; cease from thy turmoil, mind, and thou the Everlasting Rest shalt find. If a man would have peace, let him exercise the spirit of peace; if he would find Love, let him dwell in the spirit of Love; if he would escape suffering, let him cease to inflict it; if he would do noble things for humanity, let him cease to do ignoble things for himself. If he will but quarry the mine of his own soul, he shall find there all the materials for building whatsoever he will, and he shall find there also the Central Rock on which to build in safety.
By curbing his tongue, a man gains possession of his mind. The fool babbles, gossips, argues, and bandies words. He glories in the fact that he has had the last word, and has silenced his opponent. He exults in his own folly, is ever on the defensive, and wastes his energies in unprofitable channels. He is like a gardener who continues to dig and plant in unproductive soil. The wise man avoids idle words, gossips, vain argument, and self-defence. He is content to appear defeated; rejoices when he is defeated; knowing that, having found and removed another error in himself, he has thereby become wiser. Blessed is he who does not strive for the last word. — James Allen
The true silence is not merely a silent tongue; it is a silent mind. To merely hold one’s tongue, and yet to carry about a disturbed and rankling mind, is no remedy for weakness, and no source of power. Silentness, to be powerful, must envelop the whole mind, must permeate every chamber of the heart; it must be the silence of peace. To this broad, deep, abiding silentness a man attains only in the measure that he conquers himself. — James Allen
When I am in harmony with the Creative Force, I am aligned with what I am here to be. I am then present in what I do with clarity and focus, awareness and mindfulness.
Every thought you produce, anything you say, any action you do, it bears your signature. You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending Light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are transforming and continuing in a different form at any moment.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Let a man realize that life in its totality proceeds from the mind, and lo, the way of blessedness is opened up to him! For he will then discover that he possesses the power to rule his mind and to fashion it in accordance with his Ideal.
So will he elect to strongly and steadfastly walk those pathways of thought and action which are altogether excellent; to him life will become beautiful and sacred; and, sooner or later, he will put to flight all evil, confusion, and suffering; for it is impossible for a man to fall short of liberation, enlightenment, and peace, who guards with unwearying diligence the gateway of his heart.
Gates open wide. Boat launched ocean. Star guides boat. Star reflects fish in ocean. Fisherman sails. Fishing of man.
The life of an adept moves like a boat in a river. The boat moves as per the currents of the river. The adept moves as per the currents of the time. The river joins the ocean; likewise, the adept’s life joins the greater life. When the river joins the ocean, it opens wide forming deltas. Also, the life of an adept grows far wider before joining the great life. He becomes a planetary worker influencing many lives in all parts of the globe. His life becomes unlimited. His travel also becomes eternal and unlimited. The distant stars form the guide. The Great Bear, the Pleiades and Sirius keep guiding the adept. The stars are reflected on Earth as the Hierarchy. The Hierarchy of the Masters of Wisdom keeps guiding. The hunter turned king. The king turned saint. The saint joins the Hierarchy. Hereafter, he has only one work. It is fishing the souls. He sails in life and keeps fishing the souls to restore them to the path. The saint becomes the fisherman. He is a fisher of men.
When a man’s soul is clouded with selfishness in any or every form, he loses the power of spiritual discrimination and confuses the temporal with the eternal.
Men cling to and gratify the flesh as though it were going to last forever, and though they try to forget the nearness and inevitability of its dissolution, the dread of death and of loss of all that they cling to clouds their happiest hours and the chilling shadow of their own selfishness follows them like a remorseless spectre.
And with the accumulation of temporal comforts and luxuries, the divinity within men is drugged, and they sink deeper and deeper into materiality, into the perishable life of the senses; and where there is sufficient intellect, theories concerning the immortality of the flesh come to be regarded as infallible truths.
I breathe in Aloha and I breathe out Aloha. I stay focused on ALOHA, and deepen ever more into Aloha for Aloha is all there is.

When warmth, love and compassion springs from a place of unbounded energy and intelligence, then it is intense and authentic.
I am connected to something far greater when I reside in stillness and in silence.
