—Spiritual Law on using the spirit power—
We have had many discussions in the past on the ways to use the "spiritual power."
But unfortunately, isn't it the reality that we are too preoccupied by the things of everyday life, that still yet, we fail to make any use of the “spirit power,” despite the knowledge and realization of its importance? What a waste of treasure!
At the risk of being repetitious, it is important for us to once again confirm the facts about the “spirit power,” and remind ourselves of what we specifically must do, in order to use the power ourselves. Let’s continue the discussion on the titled theme, as a continuation from the previous post.
“Those who live wisely are the ones who seek to turn all experiences into advantage to their souls, who do not try to flee from trial and temptation but seek to use the innermost strength to face difficulties, for it is in that spirit that character is evolved and strengthened.”
(p.103 Teachings of Silver Birch)
“Remember there is no difficulty or obstacle that crosses your path that is so strong that you cannot overcome it using the latent powers that you have within you. Even the difficulties that others place in your path can be swept aside if you will but allow all that is within you to rise and become the master.”
(p.113 Teachings of Silver Birch)
“If you would but allow that divinity which is within you to rise to the surface, if you would but learn the laws which are responsible for the full flowing of power and inspiration from higher spheres, you would begin to live as the Great Spirit intended that you should.”
(p.43 Wisdom of Silver Birch)
“Your world does not realize that everyone contains within his own being the power to conquer every disease, to master every difficulty. He possesses a reservoir of strength from which he can draw in moments of weakness. The kingdom of heaven is within.
How little is that understood! The way to contact that higher self is by living one’s life in accordance with the laws of the Great Spirit. But how many do it?”
(p.49 Teachings of Silver Birch)
“He showed that when he put it into operation the results were always forthcoming.
If you allow the Law to function, then the results must come.”
(p.52 Teachings of Silver Birch)
“You should all have perfect faith, because it is a faith born of knowledge. . . The power which envelops you, the power which supports and seeks to guide you and inspire you, is the power that emanates from the Great Spirit of all. That power can sustain you in all your trials and difficulties. That power can change your storms into sunshine, and bring you out the darkness of despair into the light of knowledge.”
(p.52-53 Teachings of Silver Birch)
“You have the greatest riches within yourselves. You are part of the Great Spirit.”
“May you all realize that you are never alone, but always encompassed around and about by a host of those who love you, who seek to guard and guide you and to help and inspire you.”
(p.52 Teachings of Silver Birch)
Life is spiritual power itself, and the spirit is the Great Spirit (God). Our true self is the spirit; therefore, we are parts of the Great Spirit (God).
Since “spiritual power” is the power of the Great Spirit (God), thus by simply “being alive” (to have life) we have the Great Spirit (God) and his power within. In this earthly world, only humans hold “sense of self”; and us human beings are the only ones on earth (individual spirits) equipped with the ability to understand the Great Spirit (God) through life and the operation of the natural Law.
Vitality, energy, vigor, encouragement, guidance, awareness, wisdom, enlightenment, inspirations. These are all “spiritual power” in operation, which we can receive directly from the higher spheres of the spirit world, once the required conditions are in order, says Silver Birch.
These “conditions” (spiritual law) are to learn the Spiritual Law correctly, and to live life in harmony with the Law. Practice daily meditations (brief sessions are fine), to tranquilize the mind. Open ourselves toward the spirit world, and be conscious of the spirit guides who are constantly watching over us, and communicate with them.
Practice these steps on daily basis, and we will start receiving wisdom, enlightenment, awareness, guidance and inspirations, whenever necessary, from higher spheres of the spirit world.
[Specific methods on using the innate power]
1. Acquire genuine knowledge of the Spiritual Law, such as “Silver Birch’s teachings.” Trust the Law and practice it in real life.
2. Have full trust (faith) in the Spiritual Law and the spirit guides.
3. Practice meditation (brief sessions are okay) to clear distractive thoughts, and attain calm and empty mind. In the tranquility, open ourselves toward the spirit world.
At times be conscious of the spirit guides, and talk to them.
4. Daily practicing of active faith in the Spiritual Law will raise the reception for spiritual guidance, enlightenment, inspirations and encouragements. They will come to us, in the quietness of meditation, or in little moments of everyday life.
Here is a metaphoric example to further explain the flow of this spirit power.
Rain and snow (spirit power) fall on Mount Fuji (spirit world).
=> Snowmelt and rain water (spirit power), through the underground water vein, flow through the spirit body of human beings on earth.
=> The spirit power, which is circulating the spirit body, spout out from the chakras, into the physical body, just like the spring water of Kakita-gawa springs (Kakita River in Shizuoka, Japan).
=> This “spring of spirit power” which comes through the chakras, become the flow of energy of life and latent force (qui), that circulate the physical body.
=> When time is ripe, comes suffering from series of trials and difficulties of life.
The experience of suffering awakens the spirit, and one learns the Spiritual Law.
=> Practice active faith in the Spiritual Law, and harmonize life with the Spiritual Law.
=> Long-atrophied Spirituality (divinity) comes alive, and one starts to exhibit altruistic behavior and other expressions of divinity.
=> The pipelines (water way) grow wider, which facilitate the inflow of the spirit power, and deepen communication with the spirit guides. One is able to use the spirit power from the true self within, to contact the guides, and begins to live life on earth along with his spirit guides, toward the purpose of this lifetime on earth. Guidance, support, encouragement and inspiration from higher spheres will be coming in, whenever necessary, as part of the functions of the Law.
1. We are eternal and indestructible souls, naturally connected with the spirit world, as the soul is originally divided and given to us by God.
2. Spirit power is similar to the movement of water from upstream (spirit world) to downstream (earthly world) through the waterway, via the gravitational force. The spirit power has its headspring in the spirit world; and unlike the wells of earth, which hold limited amount of water, the spirit power, which is power of God, is inexhaustible, and will never dry up.
3. Thoughts of worries, anxiety and fear are similar to the precipitation of calcium carbonate and silica deposits in hot springs, which clog the water way (“arteriosclerosis” of the pipeline), and block the outlet (chakra) of hot spring water. Meditation is like removing these mineral deposits.
4. For human beings on earth, heaven (spirit world) is found within our mind.
Our spiritual mind connects us directly to the higher spheres of the spirit world.
“Your world needs our message, the message of the spirit, the realization of the spirit truths, the knowledge that there are spiritual laws and guidance both from above and from within, so that in its perplexity it may learn where to turn to find comfort and guidance and help.”
