silent communication

Silent Communication with God and Each Other

“I perceive, by your letter, you are in doubt about the grace which passes interiorly from heart to heart. We notice an illustration of this in the woman who touched our Lord, when He said: ‘I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.’ In a similar manner, without words, one heart may communicate grace to another heart, a God imparts grace to the soul. But if the soul is not in a state to receive it, the grace of the interior is not communicated. …

“God would teach you, my dear child, there is a silence of the soul through which He operates, filling it with he unction of grace, to be diffused on other hearts who are in a state of receptivity, often more efficacious than words to replenish the soul.” ~Madam Guyon

Sharing Grace

There are primarily two ways that we get spiritual energy or light, also called grace. It can come directly from God to us through the spiritual sun. So the spiritual sun is acting as an intermediary. The other method is to give and receive light from others.

When we take in grace light from the spiritual sun, we end some of it back out to others. We can also send it out into the world in general to help heal and awaken it. The world can’t transform without energy.

We can also share energy with other beings. Not just people, but animals and plants as well. Go up to a tree, for example, and send it some of your light. Then silently ask it to share some of its energy with you. It the tree is low in energy, or has been hurt by people, it may choose to not share energy with you. It has that right. Don’t get angry about it. Just bless the tree and move on to another. When other being do share energy with you, thank them. That light contains knowledge and helps you learn and grow. The energy you send back does the same.

Eventually, we will reach a stage where energy/grace flows freely from all being to all other beings. Then we will all transform together. Continue reading “Silent Communication with God and Each Other”

Illumining Light Shining on All and Changing All

“I am light illumining all. I am light happy in my brothers and sisters. I came down to the world of mortals because of the spirit in what descended and came from the innocent Sophia. I came and delivered . . . and went . . . that which he once had. I gave him some of the living water, which strips him of chaos in uttermost darkness, in the whole abyss, which is corporeal and psychical thought. All these I put on. And I stripped him of inferior thought and clothed him in shining light: knowledge of the thought of fatherhood.

“I delivered him to those who give robes—Yammon, Elasso, Amenai—and they covered him with a robe from the robes of the light; I delivered him to the baptizers and they baptized him—Micheus, Michar, Mnesinous—and they immersed him in the spring of the water of life.” ~Three Forms of First Thought

Illumining Light

The illumining light is illumining all. It is shining on all of existence and changing it. But with us humans, it behaves differently. Only we can choose to resist, ignore, or embrace that light. Those who resist it will absorb little, if any. Therefore, they will not experience any spiritual growth or increase in level of consciousness. Those who ignore it will still absorb some, but at a slow rate. It will work in them, but they will have little control over it. The ones who embrace it absorb the most. They will experience the greatest spiritual growth possible. Likewise, they will raise their consciousness level faster than the others. So thinking that we should just sit back and let whatever happens happen—the philosophy of a piece of driftwood—is not the best approach to spiritual growth.

Down to Mortals

This illumining light does come down to “mortals”. That is to say, it comes from higher dimensions down to the third dimension of matter and mortality. Those who embrace this light and use it to grow can climb out of the abyss of matter and become truly immortal. Yes, we have immortal souls and spirits. But we are not immortal unless we awaken and unite with those spiritual faculties. Again, we have to work to make this happen. Driftwood rarely lands in the right port.

Grace and Light brings Enlightenment

“The Grace of God in a soul is like a candle in a lantern or in a glass vessel; for it enlightens, and brightens, and shines through, the vessel, that is, the righteous man. And it manifests itself to the man who has it within him, if he be observant of himself. And it manifests itself through him, to other men, in virtues and in good examples. This flash of divine grace inwardly stirs and moves a man with swiftness, and this swift movement is the first thing which makes us see. Of this swift movement of God there springs from the side of man the second thing, which is a gathering together of all inward and outward powers in the unity of the spirit, in the bonds of love.” ~John of Ruysbroeck

Grace of God

Whether you call it Grace, Manna, or Light, this power that comes from God does indeed enlighten one. It does this by awakening the dormant spirit and soul. It then continues to do it by nourishing them as material food nourishes our physical body.

It sounds like a catch twenty-two, however, when Ruysbroeck says that grace manifests to the one who already has it within him. I believe that what he means is that grace comes to the one who is ready for it. Grace comes to the one who is willing to receive it and use it wisely.

Sharing Grace

When we have manages to get the Grace of God within us, and have awakened our own spiritual faculties, it is important to share that with others. Ruysbroeck indicates that this is done by being virtuous and showing good example. That is certainly a part of it, but it isn’t the only way. When a person is ill, we can send them healing energy just by thinking about it. They don’t even have to know we have done it. Likewise, we can send that Light or Grace out to others imbedded with positive thoughts like love, peace, and harmony. Such directed Light can counter a surprising amount of negativity in the world.

Grace Grows Swiftly to Raise Consciousness Higher

“Inpouring grace grows swiftly in power, as the strength of the sun grows with the passing of the year. The Presence of God now stands over the soul’s supreme summits, in the zenith: the transcendent fact of the illuminated consciousness. His power and love shine perpetually upon the heart, ‘giving more than we can take, demanding more than we can pay’; and inducing in the soul upon which the mighty energy is playing, a strange unrest, part anguish and part joy. This is the second phase of the ecstatic period, and give rise to that which Ruysbroeck, and after him Tauler, have called the ‘storm of love’; a wild longing for union which stretches to the utmost the self’s powers of response. And expresses itself in violent efforts, impassioned ascents towards the Spirit that cries without ceasing to our spirit: ‘Pay your debt! Love the Love that has loved you from Eternity.’” ~Evelyn Underhill

Grace Grows Swiftly

Grace grows swiftly today even more than it did when Ms. Underhill wrote the quote. I am not sure that she intended to relate the growth to the sun, but comparing it with the growing strength of the sun, but it is appropriate to do so. In fact, it is the birth of the Sun of Righteousness as described by the prophet Malachi that is bringing that greater flow of grace to us. It is that Sun of Righteousness which is the “Presence of God” that Underhill speaks of. While God is everywhere, His Presence is more concentrated in the Light of the Spiritual Sun, that Light which is also called “Grace”.
