Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month

Greetings Everyone!

I hope you've all have had your end of year festivities in a responsible manner to yourself and each other. Those that party hearty and those that rather reflect on the year that has gone by. Before you commence your "New Year's Resolution" take a highlights only mental inventory of those you should forgive. Especially if you were at fault no matter the reasons. Come to an internal spiritual consensus to do better just like New Year resolutions are all about.

My "New Year Resolution" has been simple and constant for the last few years out of simplicities sake. It is "To do the best I can and to be very well for it". It's no fuss and no muss of half hearted measures and broken resolutions as 3 months into the new year. Many shoot for the moon with ambitious New Year Resolutions only to break them giving yourselves a dosage of grief and guilt. Whereby if your trying to lose weight only a carton of ice cream will give you peace. Or so you think and thus the spiral downward into remorse begins a refreshed cycle of heartache. I say catch yourself before you leap down such a black hole and try something closer to Earth within your grasp. Baby steps rather then Moonshots will yield steady progress over time if indeed you are sincere with accomplishment.

Tonight's trio of original "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements are in the series # 1060-1062. On the topics of: Change, Reincarnation, and Spirit. Taking in the view of the Meta beyond the confines of this little sandbox we call the Earth and Humanity. Even though you may disagree with some of my statements or conclusions may it nonetheless expand your perceptions of your spiritual inheritance with God.

Namaste my spiritual siblings and have a Happy New Year!

----------------------------------------------------------

Change:

1060) When times are good people will refuse to change or improve their modality of living or thinking. They become complacent and seek not to alter anything of consequence in their lives. Fearing it would cause a risk of loss in lifestyle in regards to prosperity be it material or otherwise. However when things are difficult and if necessary near a boiling point. Then change is ripe in the air and changes that matter are practical to pursue. There will always be people who seek to stand still out of habit. They shall be the first wave of souls to be left behind in the past with hardly a promise for tomorrow. Change is constant and so should we be for the right reasons and for the highest good in each of us especially at no one's misfortune.  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Reincarnation:

1061) When any soul comes to life as a (im)mortal being in this physical Creation. They are a Infinite piece of God come to this universe. So as to live, to love, to grow, and to create by having a near opportunity to experience this side of Creation most of all. All souls are ageless spiritual beings of eternity where time has no bearing on existence. However every soul will seek out a physical experience in order to feel time and separation so as to be one with a duality consciousness. All hardships soon become kindling to the evolution of every soul that is incarnated. Not to forsake its own previous spiritual memories as the minor gods or angels in paradise. But to fulfill such tendencies to experience a quasi mortal entity in conjunction with their eternal soul in tandem.

This is all to recall our Source as the Creator himself become alive through us right Now! By returning from every hardship as a catalyst to propel our combined divinity forward. So we may remember through growth and to love Creation at this level of incarnated detail. God(dess) comes through us so we may experience the sublime and the mundane in union. Our experiences becomes a macro kaleidoscope for God the Creator to sift through our thoughts and emotions as himself. To be truly the "I am, that I am". 

We are the souls forging ahead by living, experiencing, and loving for both ourselves and for God(dess) through us. We as mortal beings have never left the womb of our Creator. God(dess) is pregnant with us as life itself. Where an inception of life and birth are a constant developmental reality filled with high praise to our Maker.

When it is our time to return to the fullest realization of paradise by mortal death. We do so being hopefully wiser and rather gentler souls than when we came with ourselves and each other. If not, there are many more opportunities to experience another aspect of life within Creation. Amen.                                                ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Spirit:

1062) Where we as people live as citizens to a sovereign nation within this world that have predefined borders. We as immortal souls from the realms of Spirit have no such border to contend with in our infinite ethereal sojourns. We as the Holy Spirits given mortal form as physical people have our limitations. However when we die to this version of ourselves we become so much more with faculties of the minor gods if we so choose to be again.

To traverse Creation which is a never ending nonlinear distortion as a spiraling life. Traveling to dimensions where time and space do not exist nor shall ever exist in truth. We become one again with the Absolute Creator the "God of gods" rediscovering our inheritance from the frame of mind of the Angels. God is Infinite and so are we in the "Holy Spirit" by being made in his Image and Likeness as souls without borders in paradise. Amen.                                              ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

---------------------------------------------------------

Be yourself, and be what God intended. ---Unknown.

Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this Earth. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time. ---Shirley Chisholm.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. ---Socrates.

The progress of our soul is like a perfect poem. It has an Infinite idea which once realized makes all movements full of memory and joy. ---Rabindranath Tagore.

To us, our house was not unsentient matter - it had a heart, and a soul, and eyes to see us with; and approvals and solicitude's and deep sympathies; it was of us, and we were in its confidence and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benediction. ---Mark Twain.

Public Health & Safety Concept: "Pharmaceutical Addiction Responsibility Fund"

Hello All,

Prescription medications when they serve their purpose are a welcome balm of healing to our healthcare system in America. Healing and treating an array of symptoms that patients so dearly need for the care of any magnitude of ailments. However when such a pharmacology of medications gets abused by patients and ancillary individuals the society as a whole suffers. While researching the topic of prescription drug abuse in America I came across a litany of statistics. I read somewhere that Americans are 5% of the global population say around 311 million, but prescriptions are written like we are 20% of the global population. Pain Killers are the real scourge in America being excessively used. For instance more addicts die from over doses of pain killers than they do of Heroin and Cocaine combined in America.

This hasn't gone unnoticed by the trade association of the pharmaceutical industry known as PhRMA. This trade group is very concerned about these societal trends where they are vigorously engaged in community education with local community partners nationally. So says such a web page entry citing crucial data points right here. PhRMA on Prescription Drug Abuse (Link)

What I'm proposing with tonight's public health and safety societal conceptual design initiative goes much further. Than mere placing their pharmaceutical toe in the American society waters by means of community and education out reach. To share the pain (pun intended) of the mortality rate and for the living addicts getting high from their manufactured medications nationally. Meaning to establish a good faith public health trust fund of sorts available to these aforementioned community local partners. Such as drug rehab clinics and hospitals perhaps even narcotics anonymous groups. Drug Courts across America helping to staff and run them, especially by hiring more public defenders on their municipal payrolls. Aid Narcotic Vice Police squad departments with additional resources be it with awarded grants for equipment and additional personnel. Besides help the affected police departments with the disposal incineration costs of destroying seized prescription medications. Since twice a year nationally the DEA (Drug Enforcment Agency) paid by tax payers foots the bill to promote the "Prescription Drug Take-Back Day". I'll quote from their opening paragraph from November 5th of this year on their event press release. DEA Press Release (Link)

"NOV 05 (WASHINGTON) - On its ninth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on September 27, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and 4,076 of its national, tribal, and community law enforcement partners collected 617,150 pounds (309 tons) of unwanted prescription drugs at 5,495 sites.  This brought the total amount of drugs collected in four years to 4,823,251 pounds, or 2,411 tons.  (A breakdown of this ninth Take-Back Day’s results by state can be seen here.)"

I recall back in the 1980's during the Reagan Presidential Administration years. When cocaine when hitting the streets across America for the very first time. That eventually American military advisers a.k.a. special forces were sent to Columbia to combat the co-ca plant production. By training the Colombian National Army in dealing with this mess in their own backyard. I'm sure the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) got involved by forging partnerships of all sorts. (ie Iran-Contra Affair ring a bell?)

My point is the "War on Drugs" being a catchy phrase having mediocre success nationally in these past few decades. I hear nothing now about a war on drugs although Mexcio is practically in a civil war. With 6 major drug cartels just south of our American border. The pharmaceutical industry be it domestically is just sitting pretty making billions of dollars in profits. Some of which I suppose are from illicit uses of the medications they themselves have manufactured. I bet they have those internal numbers somewhere in accounting departments in each company. I'm not stating to declare a war on the pharmaceutical industry that is plain lubricious. However they are helping that this societal public health and safety dysfunction to continue even if indirectly. Time to pony up a few billion of dollars every year into the aforementioned Public Health & Safety Trust Fund.

I wonder if there are any unseen or unheard of policy research papers from think tanks. Exploring how culpable the pharmaceutical industry is with the prescription drug abuse? Stopping production is not what I'm advocating altougth stricter quality control distribution standards wouldn't hurt. Thankfully here in the State of Florida our recently reelected State Attorney General "Lady Pam Bondi". Spearheaded a couple years back a prescription drug database which several other States also are now using. That tracks medications between physicians, pain clinics, pharmacies, and hospitals avoiding previous abuses by addicts. Since only a couple years ago Florida was notoriously known as the Pill Mill Capitol of the country. That title no longer applies thanks to this statewide prescription drug database and Statewide Law Enforcment efforts. Here's such a finding from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) from this past July 4th 2014. Prescription Pain Killer Abuses Plummet in Florida (Link) 

Florida gained notoriety after 2007 because of the proliferation of pain clinics in the state that were prescribing large quantities of drugs for pain with little medical justification and were being used primarily by persons abusing or diverting opioid analgesics, benzodiazepines, and muscle relaxants (2). In 2010, Florida was also home to 98 of the 100 U. S. physicians who dispensed the highest quantities of oxycodone directly from their offices. In response, Florida enacted several measures to address prescribing that was inconsistent with best practices. The Florida legislature required that pain clinics treating pain with controlled substances register with the state by January 4, 2010. In February 2010, the Drug Enforcement Administration and various Florida law enforcement agencies began to work together in Operation Pill Nation (3). Pain clinic regulations were further expanded later in 2010. In February 2011, law enforcement conducted statewide raids, resulting in numerous arrests, seizures of assets, and pain clinic closures. In July of that year, coinciding with a public health emergency declaration by the Florida Surgeon General, the state legislature prohibited physician dispensing of schedule II or III drugs from their offices and activated regional strike forces to address the emergency. Mandatory dispenser reporting to the newly established prescription drug monitoring program began in September 2011. Finally, in 2012, the legislature expanded regulation of wholesale drug distributors and created the Statewide Task Force on Prescription Drug Abuse and Newborns.

About less than half of the States in our Union are each utilizing such a strict prescription drug database as a safeguard measure. Paid wholly by tax payers, don't you think the pharmaceutical industry should have some economic skin in helping States fund such initiatives? Or is the community education and local partnerships enough of a responsibility for them as a form of accountability?

Here's a national map from the mortality rates from the year 1999 and 2010 in comparison. Tracking this national drug epidemic courtesy of "Healthy Americans.org" posted last year in October 2013. Link to the National Map Comparison

Prescription Drug Abuse: Strategies to Stop the Epidemic finds that 28 states and Washington, D.C. scored six or less out of 10 possible indicators of promising strategies to help curb prescription drug abuse. Two states, New Mexico and Vermont, got the highest score, receiving all 10 possible indicators, while South Dakota scored the lowest with two out of 10.
According to the report, prescription drug abuse has quickly become a top public health concern, as the number of drug overdose deaths - a majority of which are from prescription drugs - doubled in 29 states since 1999. The rates quadrupled in four of these states and tripled in 10 more of these states.
Prescription drug related deaths now outnumber those from heroin and cocaine combined, and drug overdose deaths exceed motor vehicle-related deaths in 29 states and Washington, D.C. Misuse and abuse of prescription drugs costs the country an estimated $53.4 billion a year in lost productivity, medical costs and criminal justice costs, and currently only one in 10 Americans with a substance abuse disorder receives treatment.

So my concept or requested initiative is that the pharmaceutical industry show a combined fortitude nationally. Be it through their trade association of PhRMA or other corporate institutions domestically. By placing their combined leadership and custodial responsibility to rather be a great healer. Versus an indirect benefactor financially from the sales of these illicitly used medications. To share in the burden Uncle Sam is dealing from Nationally down to our local streets. Now that States like Florida are better safeguarded from abuses by unscrupulous physicians and pain clinics writing red flag prescriptions.The drug addicts I hear on a minority basis are holding up pharmacies directly in robberies just to get their fix. So the dilemma continues from one source in distribution to another unfortunately.

Do consider how the Pharmaceutical Industry needs to be held to the highest possible standard in our health care concerns. Just as the government is in combating these efforts from the misguided end users abusing themselves and our society. However keep in mind this concept initiative can easily apply to Small Firearms Manufacturers and the Pornography Industry in America. Both are indirectly financially profiting from citizens being victimized from gun violence and sexual assaults. They should be held to a higher standard economically since the tax payer is again holding the bag once more.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "Perfection Is Purely Spiritual And Excellence Is For Mortals Alone"

Hello All,

I'm squeezing in my end of the year blog posts to sync up with my monthly routine for my readers here at "Atrayo's Oracle". Typically two "Jewels of Truth" statements from my recent material and the trio of my older works. With at least one monthly "Gem of Opportunity" of an innovative conceptual design offered up as a solution for society as a whole. That's the format I've been trying to follow for the last year or so here on this blog site. Cross-posting my material here at Google's Blogger to my other incarnations of "Atrayo's Oracle". Be it Tumblr, Beliefnet, Temple Illuminatus, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and sometimes Linkedin. I try to cultivate a readership within various sources of social media on the cheap. Thankfully its worked for my web analytic tool highlights readers Internationally. The hits may be modest in the low thousands, however I'm grateful for every sincere set of eyeballs. No matter if this is your first time here or if your a regular reader across any of my several venues.

Tonight's "Jewels of Truth" statement is on the topic of Perfection. Which is very apropos due to the holiday craze at least here in some Western and certain Asian Eastern societies. Do remember chasing for perfection for people is a fallacy, much like a dog chasing its tail. Better yet pursue a sincere moderated action of excellence instead. You'll remain closer to sanity and hopefully avoiding the pitfalls of the ego to jump off the cliff's of despair. Enjoy your holidays no matter your religious faith with yourself and your Creator first. Followed rightfully so by your dear family and friends in this life. As the Lady "Suze Orman" likes to state; "People First, then Things and then Money".

Happy Holidays.

-------------------------------------------------------

Perfection:

1885) All perfection begins within from the spiritual vantage point alone. For all Earthly matters are prone to errors of all varieties and scales of wrong doing. Only excellence can be achieved amongst mortal people in every endeavor as an outlet for a truthful success. Perfection is a spiritual power as a self-directed motion afforded to all from the "Spirit of God" alone. To be perfect one must be pure of heart and of mind in solidarity with the divine in every manifestation. Short of this perfection becomes an ideal to reach for although falling short each time.

Life may seem ruled by chaos when observing worldly events. Yet within all sets of dynamics there is a paradox of order at work. Every system from the minuscule to the gigantic observes such a tenacity as a sublime truth. To proclaim only chaos as the only reality is to only speak a half-truth in conjecture. Every witness can only find perfection in the meta whole watching from a comfortable distance. Up close we miss the whole movement and begin to make unconscious assumptions in isolation of the required parts in motion. We miss the entire scale of the order of being often paying only heed to a narrow spectrum of the selective truth we adhere to overall.

Judging a thing a flaw when indeed it is excellent is more an error of discernment. When one sabotages the efficiency of the whole mechanism in play. Be mindful of the varied consequences when living your lives in conjunction with others. This will forestall the good you seek and of your neighbors goodness as well. Still do take actions when it is warranted for inaction is the death of many in spirit. Be not afraid to move out of instinct or out of choice when you will surely benefit from such a course of action. Otherwise you may very well become the walking dead as mindless or worse heartless people. Just so you can get by life without any trouble at all. This spells ruin in more ways than I can say of the human condition and of the living soul. Perfection is pure Spirit and excellence is purely secular in nature. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "A Heaven Like No Other"

Hello All,

This month I seem to be hesitant in keeping up to date this blog site with my original spiritual works. Perhaps the bah humbug spirit has struck me, however since I'm not the type of person to put up a Christmas tree, at least not since my youth. Many of the holiday festivities seem to pass me by when at home. Nonetheless I always make it a habit to give thanks in both the small and the greater occurrences in my life. Irrespective of a formalized religious traditions I keep God with all my mind, heart, and most of my actions.

Aside from this Holiday Season no matter the particular faith being celebrated. We are each stewards of the divine that we carry in our very souls. A divinity that has no bounds and overlaps into every sincere expression of our lives. One that binds us up together with God and whichever holy figure you choose to worship. Be it Savior, Saint, or Prophet all are welcome to be reflected upon equally in a deepening sense of a dear fulfillment of the spirit.

Today's "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statement was written earlier this month. Standing at #1882 in the series on the topic of Heaven. How my Angels within describe the paradise of the soul as I describe their views. Enjoy.

----------------------------------------------

Heaven:

1882) The afterlife no matter your religious persuasion in the world is a unique realm of immense glory filled possibilities. Not so much of the sheer amazing vista's perceived by every soul in heaven to be encountered. The array of heavenly lights as breathtaking as it is puts to shame all the combined art that has ever been created. No matter if it has been fashioned by every form of intelligent species within Creation itself. This splendor is natural beyond every contraption conceived and placed into any given form by the children of the cosmos.

Many have depicted heaven as a place of many mansions each as its own wondrous resort in practice. This is yet still a crude interpretation of such a pristine celestial paradise. Instead picture a natural fauna of a living rainforest within a shaded canopy of a bio-diversity of living souls each with their own habitat. An Eden like no other where everyone flourishes together in a united harmony in witness to God's inner beauty. Every scenery is alive not with make believe Imagined surroundings, but in a living self-aware purpose that is magnificent. This intelligence becomes a living life breathing aura in a meta sense we call God(dess). This celestial light is molded to our every whim as souls within heaven. Like a clay made of ethereal stuff ushered forth by our willful thoughts in themselves or in concert with the combined thoughts of many.

God, plays with us his children in heaven like any parent would with a toddler child. The play is both instructive and totally entertaining beyond any theme park could ever provide. Like children with over glazed eyes in amazement we listen as God speaks in melodic tones absorbed into our hearty souls. We are almost as in a magical trance of the senses where our questions come not at the end of his discourses, but all throughout. Such is the timeless nature of heaven allowing answers to all questions to come instantaneously. Akin to a telepathic neural connection in a commune like pupils arena.

Newly arrived souls from Creation be it in the physical universe or elsewhere of such semi-lucent beings. Receive a nurturing orientation to recall themselves fully before total immersion in the drunk tank of (im)mortal life. Once such an assimilation is complete often referred to as the "Hour of Judgment" by the multitude of mortal faiths. This serves the purpose of gleaning an infinite constructive impact by a compassionate truth for the betterment of every entity in heaven. For those unfortunate to descend into hell see this very same practice as a raping to be tortured by the denizens of such a perdition. Twisting the truth into a warped abomination to heckle and punish its recent inhabitants. However in Heaven all is meant for enlightenment so as to understand from all perspectives. For every life you've directly or indirectly have touched as a person not to sit in judgment of you but to set you free by grace. Your soul always continues to live spiritually to what it had done prior to your mortal incarnation. Regarding your eternal interests and joys as angelic like beings by every pursuit Imaginable. Amen.                                           ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From: The Wayfarer of the Soul, Volume 2

Holiday Greetings,

Tis the Season as they say. I've just returned a couple of days ago from my 2 week family hometown visit in Miami, Florida. At least for the American "Thanksgiving" holiday traditional period. I'll see if I can make up the missed "Gem of Opportunity" innovative concept for this past November. By posting two this month, at least I'll see if I can make it so...

I've also recently compiled Volume 3 of the "Jewels of Truth" series in complete manuscript form. Meaning since I write all my material in long hand I painstakingly pieced together all 365 spiritual wisdom statements for my next volume. Besides I've just spell checked the document. What's left at least on my end before it becomes published or self-published via iUniverse.com. Is that I proof read the composition of the text one final time and then begin putting the book into an A-Z format for easy reading. Since each of my volumes aren't ever in chapter form more so an A-Z format akin to a reference guide.

Aside from that update regarding Volume 3. Today's reading from Volume 2 "The Wayfarer of the Soul" is on the topics of Metaphysics at least how it relates to Reincarnation. As always I channel this material from my Angels as a host of holy souls using automatic writing. I do my best to keep my human ego out of the equation as I channel in written form.

May you find the topic I'm exploring today intriguing in how I present it to you my global readers.

-----------------------------------------------------

Metaphysics:

Those of us who hold a strong belief in reincarnation usually tend to believe that it only corresponds to a past linear historical time period. Well it is more than just the past, it is also the present usually known as twin souls. Besides future incarnations of whatever order of life we become again in eternity.

Another incomplete perception is that a person believes that they are only related in a soul lineage to select individuals. This is not the case, we are related in terms of reincarnation and of oneness with God. For all living moments of the past, present, and future entities be it a speck of dust to other forms of life as souls. What this means is that you can not go ever beyond God nor yourself in the essence and substance of your soul. A soul has no borders in eternity it is both a localized phenomenon and a non-localized being as a living paradox. To awaken to this realization one begins to understand how to access the one holistic archive of life known as the "Mind of God(dess)". It is accessed via ones ethereal spirit using your intuitive faculties as if it were an open book. In turn one begins to assimilate this knowledge and wisdom with your other mortal five senses.

What can come forth is both awe inspiring or it can become horrific depending on what the person chooses to access by intention from the "Mind of God". It is both an inherent gift and a muscle to be developed like a skill. Such is the paradox into spiritual enlightenment as how many will evolve into ascended masters by grace. Or descended masters of horror by karma ushered by their personal intentions.

Fear not, all are cared for within the Holy Light. As they realize these realities by consistently discovering epiphanies with absolute love all around them. Much like a child in a wonderland of delight and grandeur. God welcomes all to reawaken by the graces of his promise of everlasting life, as an abundant journey back home to paradise. Amen.                                                              ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth: The Wayfarer of the Soul, Volume 2 pg. 107-108
