You Are To Teach Others - A Quotation from M.N. Hopkins



You are to teach others to not fear their own natural talents and to dare to live in a way that uplifts and heals not only themselves,  but all whom they touch with their light.

©  M.N. Hopkins

Note:    This is for all those of you who have been given the gift of light.  You know who you are.   Others may not or will not.   Be good, serve the good and do the best you can if you so will.  Freedom is nothing more than a choice.

An Artist As Defined by Omraam Mikheal Aivanhov



An Artist - the definition according to Initiatic Science

"Unfortunately these days, any kind of racket is called music, any kind of daub is called painting and any gibberish poetry. But what can we truly expect from such art? And yet, it is true that art will save the world. How can we tell a true artist if any oddball now seems to be elevated to the status of ‘artist’?

A true artist is an interpreter of philosophy, science and religion, because being an artist means realizing in the physical plane what the mind perceives as being right and true and what the heart feels is good, so that the higher world of the spirit may descend to manifest itself in matter. An artist, in the initiatic sense of the word, is someone who has been able to establish order and reason in his or her thoughts and introduce peace and love in his or her heart, and as such are able to bring beauty and harmony to everything they produce."

For And With The Divine Video Presentation - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



For And With The Divine Video is a creation by Sukie. Many, many thanks for the beautiful video. I am both grateful and honored that you think enough of my writings to make a video for me.
Below is the text for those who may wish to read it clearly:


FOR AND WITH THE DIVINE - A POEM BY M.N. HOPKINS

When faced with a dilema

There are two ways to go

Turn away from it

Or

Walk directly into the storm

The storm will last but a short while

And after

You will be

Enlivened and refreshed

Too many have been conditioned

To take the easy way

Devoid of conflict

Devoid of challenges

Devoid of Love

It is better

To accept one’s humanness

And

Participate in lifes ups and downs

By this way

A turnaround is possible

A turn away from

False beliefs

False educations

False conditioning

And

Embrace reality

With all it’s thorns and pitfalls

Travel through one’s life

With an air of expection

And

Open to all one meets

As one travels on one’s way

Walking alone

Or

Walking together

Walking always toward

The Promised Land

Of one’s own making

Find balance

Then

You will find Love

That Love that has always been with you

And

Within you

Accept your life as it is

Then

You are in a position of change

For the better

Be at peace

While you walk toward a destination that was the same

At your departure

As it is upon your arrival

Walk the human path

For that is the path

That is the shortest distance to the Divine

One does not walk away from

Or

Out of one’s humanity

To arrive in the Divine

Rather

One walks into one’s humanity

To be in the Divine

Then in balance

Human walks alongside

And

Together with the Divine

An union occurs within

One’s everyday reality

An union of Heaven and Earth

Not as no longer human as you have been taught

Rather

As more human

In this partnership

The human walks for and with

The Divine

Yes

For and with

The Divine

Note:
I began this poem a few days ago and spent this morning editing it. I am publishing it for the first time on my blog today, 19 June 2017. I do hope that it moves you to insights of your own making.

A Kahuna Prayer - The Wisdom Of Ancient Hawaii

A Kahuna Prayer for Wisdom, Clarity and Self-Love:


Take all that I say,
And toss away
Without a thought
All that does not
Strike within You
A Recognition.
For You do not learn Wisdom and Love
You only encounter
Catalysts to remember it.
For it is all
Within Yourself.

The Fire - The Wisdom of Omraam Mikheal Aivanhov




The Fire - that dissolves our inner tumors

"Be it in the physical, moral or intellectual plane, all human beings arrive on earth with shortcomings, flaws even. These disabilities may vary in severity, but they always have the same cause, which is that in their previous lives, these human beings have made mistakes that have accumulated, condensed and solidified like growths and now they are faced with matter that resists. So, what can be done? Well, they can use the process in reverse, in other words make these growths dissolve by subjecting them to the fire of the spirit in order to create something altogether purer and more harmonious.

If you want to transform yourself, remodel your temperament, your tendencies, your habits, your heredity even – you must call upon the celestial fire. Once you have attracted this fire within you, you will maintain it so that it dissolves your dark matter and then by using your thought you will work relentlessly to make new creations within you."
