You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You.

You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You.

Nothing seemed right.

What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean.

Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.

It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.

So- I've brought you a mirror.

Look at yourself and remember me.

A Blessing Meditation : Attraction of Money for Spiritual Purposes

A Blessing Meditation for the Attraction of Money for Spiritual Purposes

I. Alignment

This requires quieting the personality so that there is no obstruction to Soul union, for it is the Soul, the Self, that blesses.

Its three stages are:

Relax the bodyStill the emotions so they become as ‘quiet as a mountain lake’.Quiet the ‘monkey mind’ – if it leaps away bring it back to stillness to face the Soul.

II. Visualisation
See a beautiful meadow full of green grasses and flowers of all colours. It is a warm sunny day and the air is full of the perfume of the moist soil and vegetation. Feel the ground beneath your feet, the warm breeze on your skin and hear the sound of birdsong surrounding you. The sun is shining and bathing all in light.

Your attention is drawn to a bee working busily near to you. It flies from flower to flower, collecting nectar and pollen. You notice more and more bees. Their busy sound drones like a comforting perpetual ‘Om’.
You notice them working independently but together, as they each return to an active hive. Their gatherings of nectar are turned into honey. This golden liquid is for the sharing and sustaining of themselves and their community and others that feed on it. There is enough for all and the cycle of gathering and sharing is perpetual, joyful and harmonious.

III. Meditation
Having raised your centre of consciousness endeavour to think through and consider one of the following seed-thoughts:
‘Money is a symbol of divine substance and energy.’‘I appreciate money, blessing it and circulating it as a divine gift.’‘I will use money only for good, right, appropriate purposes.’

‘Breathe Out’ your ideas as formulated forms of thought into the great stream of mental substance which is ever playing upon the human consciousness.
Close with a careful consideration of your own responsibility to the Plan.Be practical and realistic and know that if you do not give, you may not ask, for you have no right to evoke that which you do not share.

Delmore:The Fear,The River,The Mind,


The mind is a city like London,
Smoky and populous: it is a capital
Like Rome, ruined and eternal,
Marked by the monuments which no one
Now remembers.
For the mind, like Rome, contains
Catacombs, aqueducts, amphitheatres, palaces,
Churches and equestrian statues, fallen, broken or soiled.
The mind possesses and is possessed by all the ruins
Of every haunted, hunted generation’s celebration.

"Call us what you will: we are made such by love."
We are such studs as dreams are made on, and
Our little lives are ruled by the gods, by
Pan, Piping of all, seeking to grasp or grasping
All of the grapes; and by the bow-and-arrow god,
Cupid, piercing the heart through, suddenly and forever.

Dusk we are, to dusk returning, after the burbing,
After the gold fall, the fallen ash, the bronze,
Scattered and rotten, after the white null statues which
Are winter, sleep, and nothingness: when
Will the houselights of the universe
Light up and blaze?
For it is not the sea
Which murmurs in a shell,
And it is not only heart, at harp o’clock,
It is the dread terror of the uncontrollable
Horses of the apocalypse, running in wild dread
Toward Arcturus—and returning as suddenly ...
