"Sparkles" By Sandy Jones Art Work
Thank you for the call, dear friend, Zeke.
Jeremiah spoke of the Mystery as arriving “Line upon line,” a reference to the last letter of the old Hebrew alphabet, which came to be believed to have special power. He added “precept upon precept.” It has come that way for me, Zeke. I do not believe it comes to anyone otherwise. There may be “road to Damascus” enlightenments, but those events are not UNDERSTOOD or CONFIRMED quickly. Understanding comes “precept upon precept.” Yours will come more quickly now because you are willing to get the veil out of the way—and to Do what you will be given to do.
Listen carefully: Get yourself a notebook and begin a journal. There is a “flow” from the Ineffable Beyond Name into our
conscious/unconscious awareness, and from there into tangibility. We move into that flow as we clothe our Glimpse with words. That flow is continual, constant, ever-flowing—from non-Movement into tangibility and the world's movement.
The purpose of the journal is to consciously become the very point where the Ineffable becomes tangible in the world, that is, to unblock the Flow and allow it to move through our CONSCIOUS awareness again—just as it did when we were children.
This is not a religious approach, Zeke, because because the flow of Glimpses from Godhead pertains to EVERYTHING good, true and wonderful. Beauty, wonder, form, color, tenderness, the fragrances of flowers, the beauty of children and mountains and June bugs, excitement, enthusiasm, FEELINGS of love and awe, and especially memories of the grand events of our lives are all part of the Flow.
Mark a section of your journal “GLIMPSES” and begin making a list of the notable Glimpses you have had in your life.
Glimpses of what? Nothing complex here. Just THINK BACK and remember the joyful, moving, significant moments. When you first fell in love. When you got your first bicycle. Any of the special, meaningful events you remember. LIST them. It isn't necessary to write in detail about them. At this time, just LIST THEM. Such as (some of mine):
- Military school and homesickness.
- The little girl, Barbara.
- The picnic and the cow's soulful eyes.
- The man screaming in the church.
- Walking to meet Mom in the evening.
At the moment, it seems I'm asking you to recall memories, and in a way, I am, but we'll call them GLIMPSES later, as you will see. This is a meaningful exercise, Zeke. Just do it. Pay particular attention to the sensations, feelings, moods and memories that come, AND KNOW THIS: As those things “come into consciousness,” Something very healing to the BODY is coming with them.
Will you do this, Zeke? Set up a specific time, early in the morning and again in the afternoon or evening, each day. Not long. You set the time. Ten or fifteen minutes MINIMUM. Some days, when the Flow is really coming, STAY WITH IT. In a year or two (for you, how about a month or two?) you will be surprised and delighted to find that the Flow is CONSTANT and that you can actually do what the prophet said: “Whatsoever things are good and true .... think on these things.”
You have just begun. I assure you, that Child LIVES, Zeke. Everything you felt as a kid, you can and WILL feel again! “Prove me now, herewith...!” the Child within will lead you to all things else. Then, you will have the opportunity to do the same for many others, even as now I do for you.
Hang in there, man. We have a lot to do for our world!
