Again it seems I have left this segment of "Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month" to the very end. As the Summer heat wave grips the country if not certain parts of the world. I hope many of you are finding yourself well hydrated and protected from the intense rays of the sun.
Today's all original trio of "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements written originally back in early January 2010. Are on the topics of the "Kingdom of God, Source, and Achievement" in the series of #1009-1011.
As always enjoy them and may you find them insightful according to your own spiritual tradition in life.
1009) For those that seek the "Kingdom of God" in your own midst. First look within your being poised in silence where all is quiet in heart and mind. There while calm without stirring you shall within the fullest scope of harmony find yourselves in the gap between moments. This space between moments allows you to become enshrined in all things holy. Your awakening becomes true as a soul. There is no arrival, you just are who you are in essence. In finding yourself you encounter unity with all things in a stillness that is loud to all the senses.
A nexus begins to take form where thought and intention are one in your presence. What one wills becomes so in spirit. This is where eternity and infinity become realities of your own making in the stillness beyond the witness, but of the being within. You are at the intersection between Heaven and Earth in spirit. Who you are as a person means little to whom you are in divinity. Such an awareness forestalls all that is rational to the mortal mindset, and yet for the awakened soul it is as sweet as the morning dew. In being in such a realm you have arrived within the "Kingdom of God(dess)". This is your home and in all reality you have never left such a place. Only in your ego do you believe you are separate from the womb of Creation. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1010) We are the "Living Waters" of the Source we know as God. All things become nourished in our divine spirits. For this we give praise to God for such an all encompassing grace. These "Living Waters" is of the very same delta where the Angels drink and bathe in the "Rays of God". We are not shunned as foreigners from such a holy and sacred wonder known to us as God(dess). All beautiful souls are welcomed to stay awhile, although awhile is another word for eternity. All that belong to Heaven by means of the "Holy Spirit" within us all are entitled to rejoice in the splendor of the gods of Creation. We are all little deities in the making on the scale of the absolute. This is in part the meaning and truest essence of becoming in the Image and Likeness of our Creator, God.
Not all realize such a grace in this life, many more will fear it as heresy. Those not wanting of Heaven in its purest form can wait longer to enter the lesser realms of grace. As slivers or pieces of God we are Infinite aspects of the One. Reflections of Creation bound together as a whole body of Life. What one entity tears apart another will sew back into form. This is the cycle of life, not all is as chaotic as it seems dear child of Heaven. Take heed, allow your faith to become whole once more. We are mighty heirs to all things of wonder and grace. Denial of such a truth only delays our justice that is at hand, it does not erase it however. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1011) There are three pillars to achievement for the human condition. They are as follows: academics, athletics, and the arts. Where each one represents a sphere of influence in any society at large. All are outlets for personal growth to become attained for the greatest good of the many.
For example, Academics permits the robust development of the discerning mind. All things of the learned come into view allowing critical thought to become joined with reason and logic. Next comes development of the human form meaning the body by means of Athletics. This is where athletes perform for the masses and at times for their own self-mastery of all things of physical accomplishment. Taking great pride to best their own peers and for the truly renowned to become living legends in their own time. Next comes the Arts where the expressiveness of the Soul becomes paramount. No matter the medium selected art fashions the mortal world of form to its own devices. At the behest of the artist or their own tempest from within that can drive them to extremes if not weary enough. Artists of renown can help define and articulate the collective unconscious that stirs in the hearts and minds of the masses. The greatest of these become Oracles of their own age seeking to serve rather than to profit for personal gains alone.
These are the 3 circles of the mind, body, and soul in a steady progression in seeking to reach a state of excellence for the human condition. This becomes the path of the noble hearted expressing for a society what it could not otherwise do for itself on the scale of the macro. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Providence has hidden a charm in difficult undertakings which is appreciated only by those who dare to grapple with them. ---Anne-Sophie Swetchine.
