SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 237

This is the daily exploration for Wednesday, August 24, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF HEAVENLINESS


+ Continuing with the 12 styles of the Mandala process, we are exploring the style of Imagination.

+ Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
 – Voltaire

+ We are not human doings.  We are human beings.  Most of us can think of plenty we can do and sooner or later deeds become imperative.  But we must always find a way to prioritize being over doing.  Even beyond being human beings, we are heavenly beings.  We can realize our heavenly identity when we open a channel to our heavenly guide or guides.  This requires that we take time to dream, to envision, to imagine, to let go of our agenda and allow God’s agenda in.  We will change.  We will be transformed.  We will reveal heaven.  We will display compassion.
+ The 12 styles of Mandala: Creating An Authentic Spiritual Path: An InterSpiritual Process by Edward Bastian are listed in SE206.

+ The 7 steps of InterSpiritual Meditation by Edward Bastian are listed in SE21 and SE213.  They are described fully in his book, InterSpiritual Meditation.

+ To get inspired and illuminated by Ed Bastian, I invite you to set aside some time for these videos:  Seven Steps of InterSpiritual Meditation (11 minutes) | 15 minute introduction to InterSpiritual Meditation and the Mandala Process | 2 hour lecture & conversation
