Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about the quiescence of the soul.
What do I mean by this? So much of who and what you are becoming develops in the quiet moments of living -- those times when you stop and reflect on the lessons of life: the love that was shared between friends, the forgiveness and mercy shown to those who are less developed in their thinking, and ultimately the time you spend in quiet contemplation and meditation in communion with the Creator and the Indwelling Spirit. These my friends are the growth moments of the soul -- a time to slow down and feed the soul child by allowing the quiescence to bring together all of the survival value experiences of life to settle into the emergence of transcendent personality.
“Self-mastery can only be achieved in the quiet reflection of past mistakes and lessons learned, while at the same time, your mind and your thoughts shift in contemplation of new ways to approach old problems. There is no better way that one can accelerate soul growth and progress forward than to set aside time to go into this quiescence of mind and sort out the meanings of life. It should be as natural and needful as going to the well to hydrate the body, for it truly does feed the soul.
“Have you become to busy in life? Do you feel that you have lost that special connection you once had with God because you let the world and life circumstances control you instead of you controlling the circumstances? The Universal Father has not gone anywhere and His love for you is constant and affectionate. He is waiting for you to open the door to your heart by making space for Him in your mind through the quiescence of being present in the moment and turning off all the distractions of material living.
“Go there right now, my friends, to this quiescent zone where only you and the Creator are. No words need be spoken -- just ‘be’ in the moment with God and let His parental love for you wash over you to nourish your soul and give rest to your mind. Drink it all in and give to God all your worries and anxieties; your hopes and dreams; your thanks and gratitude for the life He has given you to experience love and to share that love with others. Retreat my friends, into this quiet place and into this space where the soul lives and breathes, for to live life without it is to really have no life at all.
“Wherever you find yourself, you can go into this quiescence and be one in the moment with God and reconnect yourself to the source of all life. There you will find the strength and the courage to complete your life mission and to discover the astonishment, the truth, the beauty, and the goodness of all the things God has created for you to experience as you make your way home to your final embrace.
