Be a frequency holder

Even if you achieve your outer purpose, it will never satisfy you if you haven’t found your inner purpose, which is awakening, being present, being in alignment with life. True power comes out of the presence; it is the presence. Some people are called upon to do great things externally in this world by creating some new structure that reflects their awakening consciousness. Other people, whom I call the frequency holders, are not called to go out into the world and create great big things externally. Their purpose is to let consciousness flow into whatever they do – to do everything in a sacred manner.
To do everything in a sacred manner means to do everything fully in the state of presence.

Whatever you do, whatever you’re working with, whether it’s manual work or talking to people or buying or selling, every little thing encompasses the power and simplicity of presence. Those people, also, their state of consciousness spreads not only to everybody they come into contact with, but also on an unseen level it changes the collective consciousness.

Ultimately, every great endeavor consists of many little steps. You pick up the phone and you talk to somebody. There’s a voice on the other end and you say what you have to say. This is how I perceive my life. I don’t see myself as “Oh, I’m doing this great thing because I’m going to give this talk, now everybody’s going to be transformed.” If I had all these thoughts, I would live in stress because immediately the mind would say, “What if it’s not going to be inspiring and they are not transformed?” So the reality is there is only each present moment: You are called to give a talk. You get out of a building and into a car. You look out of the window. You arrive at the venue. You sit in the chair; you wait; you step out onto the stage. Every movement is simple. There is only that.

~ Eckhart Tolle


Carl Sagan ~ Look at that dot

Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

The importance of spiritual progress

Today, man is possessed of such power that he can travel in space and may soon reach other planets. On the other hand, such achievements if not coupled with spiritual progress will bring in their wake man’s destruction upon this earth.

The Kingdom of the Father is already here

Meditation reveals that stillness and peace is the heart of everything. We detach from the world, quiet our mind and return home to the Love of God, into the radical openness of awareness. The ego creates the illusion of linear time, of ups and downs, pleasant and unpleasant experiences, the illusion of separation. But the Eternal Silence and Oneness is deeper than this transitory play of waves. In every moment you can return home into the wholeness of life. In every moment the ocean of existence welcomes you: like a loving father, like a loving mother. Come home, you beloved wave of the Ocean, you beloved being, you Child of the highest Heaven. Everything is waiting for you, everything is inviting you, every beauty of creation is calling you into the eternal love affair with the Creator. The moment of our greatest fulfillment and realization of our True Self is always here and now.

You do not have to do something. Let go of the illusion that enlightenment, your great love or success awaits you in the future. Love, success and enlightenment are already here. The present moment is your doorway into heaven.  The imperfection of this world reveals the Divine Perfection. What an amazing paradox! Listen to the Truth that is written in the Gospel of Thomas:

His (Christs) disciples said to him: On what day will the kingdom come? It will not come while people watch for it; they will not say: Look, here it is, or: Look, there it is; but the Kingdom of the Father is already spread out over the earth, and men do not see it. Saying #113

You can be one of those beings – the salt and light of the earth – who awake from the dream of separation and see with the awakened eyes of the Spirit the Kingdom that is already here. Beauty is here. Mystery is here. Truth is here. Love is here. Give yourself the permission to live with this awake presence, wherever you go and whoever you meet. You can be that embodiment of oneness. You can be that window into infinity.  You can be this messenger of the almighty force of love, light and goodness. Give yourself and all of creation the gift of your awakening. It is not your job to fix the world or other people. Your only job is to remove the blocks to the awareness of loves presence within your own mind. What greater success does the world have to offer? Be in peace and the whole world is healed. Be in love and everything will fall into place. Be still and the gentle voice of the Spirit will guide you. Intelligent Infinity – or “the Father”, as Jesus said –  will show you the Way.
