This Month's Theme: Divine Providence: Are You Receptive?

Leave a comment

Enthusiasm keeps us steadfast during those “I don’t feel like it” moments.  We can’t be half-hearted about enlightenment—meditating, praying, chanting, visioning seven days in a row and then stopping for another month. When we are sincerely enthusiastic, whether our day’s meditation flowered into blossoms of bliss or not, we remain loyal to our practice.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

The overflowing good of God blesses every area of my life!

Power, Order and Wisdom!  POW! I have it all!

My relationships are a soulful celebration of joy and unconditional love!

The energy of pure spirit renews and restores my body temple!

I feel sense and accept the grace of God upon me!

All praise and glory is to God!

Gratefully I let it be!  And so it is!  Amen

Enthusiasm is our passport from the surface to depths of awakened consciousness. Consider the etymology of the Greek word en + Theos, which means “inspired or possessed by God.”  When we are overtaken by an awareness of this Great Something that breathes our breath, walks through our feet, loves through our heart, communes with Itself in our soul, how can we not enthusiastically, passionately be on fire to enter the holy of holies and taste the ecstasies of awakened consciousness?

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Love is streaming live through every area of my life!

The dynamic potential within me manifests as all needs met!

I am free to be all that God created me to be.

Vim, vigor and vitality are the fuel I run on!  I am super charged!

I am giddy with gratitude and glad surprise!

It is done!  It is so!  So be it!  Amen!

In the arc of evolutionary progress, we have so much to be grateful for, especially the luxury of time to participate in spiritual practices, to take classes, to do yoga, and much more. Perhaps more than at any other point in our lifetime, we must take full advantage of this time to pray for the world, to send out vibrational energies of universal peace, justice, kindness, and wisdom. This is how, together, we create a world that works for everyone.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Everything I want, hope for and desire is already within me!

I am a divine dispenser of cosmic good; giving and receiving in God!

My explorations in excellence reveal the Spiritual gifts within me!

I am here as an advocate and architect of a kind and just society!

Soul to soul connections are the essence of all my relations!

I stand in gratitude for this word made manifest!

So be it! Amen!

Have you ever examined that for which you affirmatively pray? Does it include an expansion of consciousness, an increasing depth of wisdom, compassion, forgiveness of self and others, generosity, the discovery of your innate gifts? Constantly tinkering with what we believe are our human imperfections can overtake our lives. We begin fussing over teeth that television ads insist aren’t white enough, bodies that aren’t thin, muscular, or attractive enough. When we look at our world and how many of our brothers and sisters must devote most of their waking hours to daily subsistence, we can catch that having the time for meditation and prayer is a blessed, sacred luxury. Let us not waste this blessing or take it for granted!

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

I am one with the presence of God almighty!

A new world is emerging in my playful, prayerful consciousness!

My high intention and deep conviction propels me forward with ease by grace!

The spiritual supply within me transcends any seeming limitations!

Health and wholeness are my divine birthright fully expressed!

Everyday I have more and more to be grateful for!

And so it is! Amen.

In India, Persia, and the Yoruba culture of Nigeria, “Baba” is a term of respect used for a father or wise man. What affectionate energy the word Baba emits, reminding us of the cosmic fatherhood principle as Source, Protector, Upholder. How comforting it is to know that although Baba’s love would prefer to prevent us form erring or being hurt, its wisdom allows us to find our own way so that we may grow and evolve.
Let us meditate upon Baba’s qualities of love and wisdom until we can feel them flowing in our own hearts. Let us express them towards our children and all who cross our path.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Gratitude is my attitude of choice and the activity of my consciousness!

And so be it! Amen!

Each of us has been designed and birthed from Spirit’s template of divine perfection.
The key teaching here being that our true nature, implanted within us from Source, is perfectly divine. And while our human nature is noble and precious, it is also perfectly imperfect. Our challenge is that we have been taught to feel unacceptable to ourselves until we live up to our own or others’ definitions of what it means to be humanly perfect.
Or perhaps if we aren’t manifesting the material things in our lives that we feel represent success, we are failures. Nothing is more untrue from a spiritual point of view.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

The evidence of God is everywhere in my life!

My unlimited potential meets every demand in new and expanded ways!

Wholeness is the activity of my consciousness and the natural expression of my Being!

The creative genius of the universe expresses through me! I am an artist of the soul!

This word is the law of my life lived in God!

Gratefully I let it be! And so it is! Amen

It is the feminine energy that will bring a level of sanity to our current state of world affairs, transforming the energies of bigotry, elitism, and sexism into their opposites. Let us remember that each of us possess both feminine and masculine energies, and that by honoring and developing them both, by extension we contribute to a world of wholeness.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Gratefully I pray and stay in God consciousness!
My soul forces and spiritual senses are activated right here, right now!
The vitalizing energy of pure Spirit transforms my body temple and the body of my affairs!
Triumphant peace and transcendent freedom express in, through, around and about me!
BAM! It is already done! Blessed and multiplied!
And so it is! Amen!

In a world where old religious models are giving way to authentic spirituality, we have before us a blessed opportunity to redefine and revitalize the vision for our lives where our spiritual and social contracts are concerned. We have the opportunity to begin afresh with ourselves and in our relationships with others and our world. When we say, “Next week I’ll begin my spiritual practice,” or any other of our intensions, basically we are saying it probably won’t happen at all. That is the power of postponement. When We Say, “Today I am beginning to know my essence as love itself. Today I open my awareness and meet myself face-to- face,” this is the power of being in the now moment.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

With complete abandonment I fly into the realm of pure Spirit!

Therefore, my moment-to- moment living is a prayer in action!

My life burns with the fire and passion of divine love and perfect peace!

I am awake to the dynamic power of Spirit as my life!

As a divine center in the mind of God, I am divinely supplied and permanently

prospered!

I live and breathe the substance of well-being and the ecstasy of gratitude!

And So It Is! Now and Forever! Amen!

During these challenging times when our world family is facing and responding with positive activism in many forms to bring about social, cultural, educational and governmental change, we must trust that the Great Law of Life governing the universe will prevail. The wheels of divine justice may grind more slowly than we prefer, but they grind surely! So as we walk together in the days and months to come, let us continue to take a stand for change grounded in principle, and to trust the results according to Spirit’s divine right timing. May trust and peace rule in our hearts.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

My life is lived in touch with the Spirit of the living God!

The joy of being and the gift of right seeing are my everyday experience!

I have everything I need to set myself free!

Gratefully I let it be! So be it! Amen!

Today we celebrate Mother love, Mother nurturing, as exemplified by Mother Mary and the Great Mother of our initial conception. Mother Earth cradles us in her arms with the richness of the soil, feeds us from her rich resources of the green earth, illumines us with brilliant light, and sustains us with living waters. Implicit is a rich vibrant texture of living ready to explode into even more greatness as us! Divine Mother consciousness continually enfolds each of us in her bosom, fulfilling through perfect love the manifestation of the highest order of God’s perfect being.

It’s reported that there are over 60 million parrots in the United States alone, which is a substantially higher population than the number of recognized prophets gracing the entire planet. The truth is, prophet consciousness lives within each one of us waiting to emerge. From within our secret soul it patiently, ceaselessly prophesizes to us our life purpose, hoping we will hear its voice, wake up, and respond. The question is, which melody do you choose to attune to: the off-key voice of a parroting society, or the perfect pitch of the prophet within? Prophet or parrot—the choice is ours.

I am created in the image and likeness of God! Whole, complete and perfect!

All praise and glory is to God! So be it! Amen!

Setting empowered intentions begins with asking oneself what I call spiritually aerodynamic questions which assist in keeping ego out of the way and identifying what will enable us to move into the next level of awakening in consciousness. In other words, it’s not about creating an external wish list; it’s about introspecting, visioning, and identifying how e must inwardly expand in order to live our highest purpose, to deliver our gifts, talents and skills as a beneficiary presence on the planet. And then committing to honor what is revealed.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

My life is lived to the glory of the living God!

The fire of my hearts desire burns away all fear, doubt and worry!

I sizzle with the soulful sauce of transformation!

This is my life on God! And so it is! Amen!

As I contemplate current world events—which simply can’t be ignored or bypassed—these words of Jesus the Christ come to me, “Cut off from the vine, you can do nothing.”  How clearly he describes the connectivity of our world family, how what happens in the West vibrationally impacts the East, the North and South, and vice versa.  And yet we continue to create and believe in artificially created manmade borders. Nevertheless, there is good  news:  there being no separation between souls, compassion, love, peace and kindness boundlessly spread far beyond our prayer mat to all beings with whom we share the planet.  And that is why I encourage us all to pray like we’ve never prayed before, to love like we’ve never loved before as our gift, our blessing upon the world and all sentient beings.

What a joy it is to be free! And so it is! Amen!

Use this time to deepen your spiritual practice for it is then, as Thich Nhat Hanh informs us, “Love will enter our thoughts, our words, and our actions.”  Affirmative prayer, meditation—these are especially contributory to developing limitless love, goodwill, compassion and discernment.  Through prayer, the tendency to set anger and retaliation loose gives way to patience, forgiveness and loving-kindness. Then, whether the winds that begin to blow are revolutionary or evolutionary, we will stand in them with a healing peace radiating out from our being into the world.

This is the real me! And so I let it be!

The call to our collective heart and soul is this: to let go of reactive habit patterns and ground ourselves in trusting the fundamental goodness of the universe, the same goodness that lives within each one of us. Then, if our heart feels called to protest injustice, let it begin with prayer. If our mind feels called to take action by signing petitions, to marching in support of our world family, let us do that also, beginning with prayer. Prayer detoxes the heart of worry, fear, anxiety, and restores equanimity, leading to wisdom-guided, impactful action. It is prayer that speaks most meaningfully and clearly to the dilemmas and questions with which our world family is now dealing.

- Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

I am a shining example of the power and presence of God!

Joyfully I live these words of truth! So be it! Amen!
