Tao-of-GiraffeCatherine Ponder, The Prospering Power of Love

The Healing Power of Release:

In The Prophet, Kahlil Gilbran described the loving attitude of release in marriage: “Love one another, but make not a bond of love….let there be spaces in your togetherness…sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone…stand together yet not too near together.”

He described the loving attitude of release toward children in these words: “Your children are not your children, They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.  They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you….You may house their bodies but not their souls….You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.”

Nowhere is there more need for the expression of love as release than between husbands and wives, between parents and children.  We often try to bend others to our will, calling it love when it is really selfish possessiveness that binds instead of frees.  Then we wonder why others resist instead of accepting our “help.”

If you want to free yourself from all types of problems in mind, body and affairs, you must release others to find their good in their own way.  A clear channel is then opened for a great good to come to all involved.  Your own freedom and well-being depend upon such release, as do the freedom and well-being of your loved ones.

“I FULLY AND FREELY FORGIVE.  I CAST AWAY ALL JUDGEMENTS, RESENTMENTS AND CRITICISMS TO BE DISSOLVED AND HEALED.”

“THE PROSPERING TRUTH SETS ME FREE TO MEET MY RICH GOOD AND TO SHARE MY GOOD WITH OTHERS.”

angerLove Works a Healing Power, by Catherine Ponder:

“When we hold resentment toward another, we are bound to that person or condition by a cosmic link and forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and be free.

Since other people are children of God, there is really nothing to forgive.  They have not really failed us, or disappointed us, or let us down, or shamed us.  They may have stumbled while crossing our pathway, but they are children of God who had temporarily lost their way.  If they crossed our pathway it was because they needed and wanted our blessings.  They were unconsciously looking to us to be steadied and set right.

Our progress has not been hindered, no matter what they did or did not do.  They did not, they could not, keep our good from us.  They crossed our path by divine appointment, even though they seemed to hurt us for a little while.  When people bother us in any way, it is because their souls are trying to get our divine attention and our blessing.  When we give them that, they no longer bother us.  They fade out of our lives and find their good elsewhere.

A Sure Remedy For Resurrecting Health, Wealth and Happiness:

Deliberately practice the healing power of love through acts of forgiveness and release.  Charles Fillmore describes this as a “sure remedy” for resurrecting health, wealth and happiness.  Bless your problem, whatever it be, with a thought somewhat like this:

“I NOW RELEASE YOU AND BLESS YOU.  DIVINE LOVE IS ADJUSTING MY LIFE AND ITS PROBLEMS.  REALIZING THIS, I ABIDE IN PEACE.”

Every person who allies himself with the power of divine love creates a bit of heaven on earth.

Pearl-in-shell_square

From Soul Provider, Step 2, Detachment by Edward Beck:

Once upon a time there was a monk traveling down a road who had a pearl in his sack.  In the village through which he was traveling there was a man asleep who had a dream that there was a monk who had a pearl in his sack. 

When he awoke, he interpreted his dream to mean that he was to have that pearl.  So he ran to the road, found the monk, and said, “Give me the pearl.”  The monk said, “What pearl?”  And the man said, “I had a dream that you have a pearl in your sack.”  And the monk said, “As a matter of fact, I do” and he looked into his sack and there, between an old prayer book and a crusty piece of bread, was a pearl.

The monk took it out of his bag and held it in his hand, saying, “Do you mean this one?”  The man said, “That’s it!” for the pearl was a big as the monk’s fist.  The monk freely gave the pearl to the man, who snatched it and ran home. 

When he reached his house, he locked his door, pulled down his shades, put the pearl on a shelf, and sat and stared at it.  But the more he stared at it, the more confused, the more restless he became.  Until, finally, he could stand it no longer.  He ran back to the road, found the monk, and gave him back the pearl, saying “I don’t want it.”  And the monk said, “Well, then, what do you want?”  The man said, “I want the wealth that gave you the power to give the pearl away.

Yogananda - Live in the moment

 

“Day by day, as you learn to meditate, a new awakening will come…
The mist of silence and mystery which hangs over everything
will slowly vanish before the dawning light of your mental and devotional search for God.
