Session nr 15 of 10 November 2015 (this is not a session; I just gave it a number for the chronology on the website.)
Note Wivine: I met many people in my life and during my travels and I read a lot. There's a truth that I met regularly in some books and among some ethnic groups. What follows is an excerpt from one of these books that expresses this truth in its own ways; a truth that I put little by little in practice through meditation and my Energy work. It is only now that I understand the full range; now that I have the ability, like some of my companions, to be able or allowed to work with the Pure Energy of my indwelling God Fragment.
It is only 8 years ago that I came in contact with the Urantia book through internet and in recent weeks I was wondering why so late? Then this text came back under my eyes in response. I first had to read other books and learn to work with the energy of the universe to follow the path that was mine. The Urantia book gave me then a broader cosmology in which my life experiences, my Energy work and my thirst for knowledge could be framed to proceed to the next steps of my progression.
THE HERITAGE OF MAN,
Silence is power, for when we reach the place of silence in mind, we have reached the place of power – the place where all is one, the one power –
Diffused power is noise. Concentrated power is silence. When, through meditation, we have brought all of our forces into one point, we have contacted God in silence, we are one with Him and hence one with all power.
This is the heritage of man. “I and The Father are one.”
There is but one way to be one with the power of God and that is consciously to contact God. This cannot be done in the without, for God manifests from within.
Only as we turn from the without to the silence of the within can we hope to make conscious union with God. We will realize that His power is for us to use and we will use it all times. Then we will know that we are one with this power.
Then man will learn to let go of self-delusions and vanities. He will realize his ignorance and littleness. Then will he be prepared to learn.
He will realize that the proud cannot be taught. He will know that only the humble one can perceive the Truth. His feet will feel the firm rock, he will no longer stumble, he will be poised in decision.
To realize that God is the only power, substance, and intelligence may be confusing at first.
When man does realize the true nature of God and brings Him forth into active expression, he will use this power at all times. He will know that he consciously contacts His power at all times – when he eats, when he runs, when he breathes, or when he does the great work before Him.
Man has not learned to do the greater works of God because he has not realized the greatness of God’s power and has not known that God’s power is for man’s use.
God does not hear us through our loud and vain repetitions or our much speaking. We must seek God through the invisible connection which we have within ourselves. When The Father within is worshipped in Spirit and Truth, He hears the calls of that soul which sincerely opens to Him. The one who makes the connection with The Father in secret will feel the power flowing through him as the fulfillment of every desire.
For he that sees The Father in the secret place of his own soul and there abides, him The Father will reward openly.
See how often Jesus disclosed his individual contact with The Father. See how he constantly held himself in conscious communication with God within. See how he talked with Him as though he were personally present. See how powerful this secret inner relation made him. He recognized that God does not speak in the fire, the earthquake, or great wind, but in the still, small voice – the still, small voice deep in our own souls.
When man learns this, he will become poised. He will learn to think things through. Old ideas will drop away, new ideas will be adjusted. He will soon find the ease and efficiency of system. He will learn at last to take all the questions that perplex him into this silent hour. There he may not solve them but he will become familiar with them.
Then he will not need to go hurrying and battling through the day and feel that his purpose has been defeated.
