grace! (how sweet the sound)
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see. "
Newton penned these words around the
time he experienced an ‘awakening’.
He had been the captain of a slave ship. During a violent
storm at sea, he experienced a shift in consciousness. Soon
after, he renounced slave running for an altogether different
way of life.
are really inner transformations. How does this happen? What
makes a Daniel Elsberg decide to risk career and personal
freedom to publish a disturbing classified account of America’s
darker reasons for engaging in the Vietnam War?
What causes any whistle blower to take the sometime life threatening
risk of revealing truths that would otherwise never see the
light of day? It is, in short, the higher mind at work.
or focused intention is a way for the universal to operate
on the level of a well placed, well crafted thought put to
its highest use. The Transcendentalists spoke of the “over
soul”, a kind of unifying principle. There is a commonality
in experience. Making contact with the source of that commonality,
is to share some of its attributes, namely, the shaping of
higher thoughts. Higher thoughts vibrate at a different frequency
that tends to lift up the atmosphere of general thought. Grace
is the constant movement in all sentient beings towards a
higher expression of itself. In times of great troubles, many
minds converge with thoughts of peace and solution. These
deeply felt longings are what’s at work especially now,
in the time we live. We can re-create
what we have created. The complexity of what we have created
can be worked with and set to balance.
with these thoughts and realizations that I offer the following
“idea”, craving for implementation.
Whether you choose
to believe it or not, events around the attacks of September
11, 2001 are clouded in darkness. Voices that have asked for
a deeper and more thorough look into the causes and details
of this event have raised many unanswered questions and largely
been ignored by the press and dominant thought in the public
mind. Yet the questions keep coming through the crevices that
are afforded to them at the moment.
Suppose there is some truth to the thought that Government
knowingly permitted the attacks to happen and even embellished
them in order to achieve what it thought was the highest good
of those they represent? If true, then there would be momentous
consequences for the acts and directions this country has
taken since then. If true, the only way to reset the course,
would be to manifest a complete and honest account of what
happened. South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation policy
is a working model for how this can work.
help the possibility of truth unraveling in this country,
a pointed and well crafted prayer designed to function for
the highest good, is put forth, with a plan
to implement it.
that we are all intimately connected by our common inheritance
of shared life on one planet and that our common shared higher
intelligence governs life in both seen and unseen ways, and
being that this common ancestry has its roots in cosmic intelligence
or mind, and being that we therefore incarnate with this shared
higher intelligence, we share its creative power as well.
We are imbued with this creativity and its commonality.
voice, individual manifestation and aspiration for this cosmic
intelligence, I claim the highest thought of calling forth
truth telling on an unprecedented scale in the minds and hearts
in high levels of government and other individuals. I call
forth the energizing of personal courage where it matters
the most to catalyze this movement of truth telling on a grand
scale. I know that truth telling is at the foundation of healthy
individual as well as a healthy societal life. I know that
what has gone astray can be righted by a personal and public,
fearless embrace of the truth, with safety for the truth teller..
The deepest space in the heart of all people knows this to
be true and wants it revealed without delay. The refined and
subtle physics for this is already in place and happening
at this moment.
For this I give my deepest and profoundest
I release this prayer this intention this shared spark of
light into the creative mind running through us all and through
all of life. Happily, I know the glory of its fulfillment
is accomplished already in ways unimaginable and realizable.
so it is.
