Who Will Teach Us?


Man was created to worship.
In the limitations of human frailty, we use religion to introduce tranquility into the soul.
In the eternal abundance of the soul, the spiritualist understands that human intellect (in wisdom) and the soul (in virtue) travel the same path to enlightenment.
The problems with "morality and ethics" in the world today are actually problems of guidance in the practical application of wisdom and knowledge. It's one thing to read it, another thing to live it.
There is a distinct difference between Wisdom and knowledge...between what our minds are able to comprehend of eternal things versus what we are able to comprehend of the temporal things within the earth. Who will teach us these things and guide us in this way? Just as there exists in close proximity the heaven and the earth, we find ourselves entangled in the temporary, changing things of life as well as the eternal, omnipotent things of God. Who will teach the children the difference? We are a confused society. Every single one of us should be a Master Teacher. Every teacher must have a teacher. Every human needs a teacher to guide the inherent inner Philosopher. Much of what we see manifesting in the streets is misguided philosophy. Misguided philosophy is a tool used by the 10% to keep the rest of us under control. Just open your eyes and take a GOOD look around. Who will teach us? Where are the great Prophets and Philosophers of old? Who will guide us to the infinite light of God? The mind must be prepared for enlightenment. It's not something one just wakes up to, as many wish for unfortunately. The path towards enlightenment, or to the highest self, is first a matter of conversion. A former teacher once told me on the subject of servitude, that I was "convinced, but not converted." Many of us, for example, are convinced that there exists a true and living God, but we are not converted to a way of life that exemplifies God. Who will teach us this? Religion is mysticism without pure, irresistible proof; Spirituality is the journey through the infinite internal void. Who will stand before us and guide us through such terrain? Someone has to teach the masses that the tools to life are hidden in the allegory of life. That's why I love the Wizard of Oz so much...it is truly one of the greatest allegorical satires of all time. Truly, if one can find and follow the yellow brick road, one can find and follow his/her Divine purpose.
I summon the Divinely inspired Master Teachers of this world and beyond.
We are servants and we introduce tranquility into the soul. We live by and teach TRUTH, because the God-joy of Wisdom is sensed in truth...yes, you feel it when you hear it. Who will train the masses which feeling to follow? For the absence of truth also evokes emotion that can mimic the aforementioned joy within the untrained, unlearned, unenlightened soul.
I summon the Divinely inspired Master Teachers of this world and beyond.
Truth begets truth. In truth may be achieved the happiness for which the joy in truth is sought. We are all seekers. EACH ONE, TEACH ONE, in as much as is humanly possible.
May the Force (of God & God's Nature) be with you always.

Peace Be Unto You.

"Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
acting with no expectations, 
leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue"

  • Change into loose,comfy clothing so that your sitting is not restricted in any way
  • Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed
  • Sit comfy on the ground, with your legs outstretched or crossed
  • Close your eyes and concentrate on relaxing each part of your body
  • Begin at the tips of your toes and envision the blood flowing throughout your body to the top of  your head, the Crown Chakra (Sanskrit) or your Ori (Yoruba).
  • Once you are focused on your blood flow, tune in to your breathing pattern.
  • Breathe in through your nose (if possible) and out through your mouth, making an "Ohhh"or "Ahhh"sound as you exhale.
  • Once your breathing is regulated, channel your attention towards your thoughts and feelings. Let them roam free for a while in your mind, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Next, capture your thoughts and move them to the outer space of your mind. This is called "Clear Your Canvas" meditation. 
  • Expeditiously push all thoughts that race for the center of your mind to the outer edges, far left/far right,etc.
  • Try to focus on your clear canvas, that is, the pure space in the center of your mind, entertaining no thoughts that try to invade that space.
  • Keeping calm and still, continue this exercise for 2 to 5 minutes. 
  • Once you reach your calm space, envision your inner Teacher. See yourself in this capacity. Feel your inner peace and tranquility. Speak affirmations to yourself. "I am Wise. I am infinite love. I have all the tools I need to be my best."
  • Give Thanks.
