The inner spirits of my thoughts
I send you musical greetings from the inner space of my mind to your melodically tranquil inner space and may our inner space duet blend beautifully with the symphony of the universal orchestration.
A message for the president,
You are at the top because you live in the penthouse of your mind, You arrived there by using an elevated thought. We'll help keep you grounded so that you remain focus. So far you seem to be keeping your promise.
I think of the human mind as being a very large apartment house, with many floors, some people live on the first floor, second floor and so forth. A person can move to a higher floor by using an elevated thought. No one can move to a higher level, without this elevation. There are those that live in the penthouse, and there are many others who are striving to elevate themselves to that level. I have always tried to visualize myself as living in the penthouse of my mental realm, and have always, hopefully, maintained an elevated thought.
We live in a world of appearances created by the human mind, which uses the material senses as its instrument of perception. Therefore, we see the world through the limiting faculties of these senses not realizing that we have been imprisoned by them. So, we live our entire lives in this prison world not knowing that there is another world existing beyond the cognizance of these senses which is more real and has a more lasting quality to it. There are many people who are aware of this deception, and are trying very diligently to see beyond the cognizance of these material senses.
One of the things that I have discovered is that there are two different types of diamonds; one of them is material and the other is spiritual. When the material diamond is dug out of the ground it isn't visable to naked mind. The material must then be removed to reveal the diamond itself. So, it is with the spiritual diamond which is hidden from view by many material beliefs that we depend on to understand the truth. But this isn't possible until we've eliminated the material one by one in order to discover the spiritual diamond that can guide us towards he truth. Some people spend their entire lives in pursuit of acquiring the material diamond and ignoring the spiritual one. There is nothing wrong with the acquisition of the material diamond if one pays some attention to the spiritual one. For myself, I have learned that if I solely pursue the spiritual diamond, somewhere along the way I would have acquired the material one. Thus, the spiritual path is the path of all good deeds; which can only happen by being conscious.
True quality is not based on race, religion, physicality or materiality of any kind. It's nature is mental and spiritual. A person who belongs to any one of the many churches cannot say because they belong to a church that they are an individual of quality. People of different races, cannot say because I belong to this race of people I am a quality person. Race has nothing to do with the quality of the individual. Money does not beget quality, it only begets that which is material. And quality is not material its derivative is truthfulness. We develop our qualities from having gone through many experiences. The so called beauty of the physical form does not mean you have quality. So I must repeat my beginning statement, “ True quality is mental and spiritual and can only be evaluated from that standpoint.”
At one time in my life I was throwing some pebbles and stones in the water, and I noticed that even the smallest stone created some ripples in the water. It reminded me of the contributions made by people in their endeavor to help the world. Some people felt that because their contribution was small, that it wasn't doing much. But they don't realize that what they are doing is crating a ripple effect, a small one maybe, but still a ripple. And if you consider a million small ripples, then what we are talking about here is a tidal wave. We have heard it said before that in unity there is strength. There is no question in my mind that if a great number of people, individually do a small bit, a great power has been created for good. Therefore, if the president wants our participation to help bring the change we seek, I say we should look into it ...for this idea represent a ladder awaiting our mental footsteps to climb it.
