Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month

Hello All,

It is that time of the month which I share the segment I enjoy the most which is the trio of "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements. Always with an eclectic mix of interesting topics that lend it to the personal growth category of inner expression. These statements are also found in Volume 3 of the recently published "Jewels of Truth: The Journey of the Soul Continues".

Today's topics are in the numbered series #1081-1083 under the categories of: Love & Fear, Balance, and Perspectives at large. Those of you that have read Volume 3 and seen my posts of the "Jewels of Truth" series here at "Atrayo's Oracle". Will no doubt find a discrepancy or two in the grammar and change of a word or two in my presentations. I often enjoy tweaking each statement so what you read here on the blog may be spruced up differently than what is presented in each of my published volumes.

The famous singer or crooner "Tony Bennett" once stated during a "Tavis Smiley" interview on PBS. That when Mr. Bennett sings he often turns the phrase different with a new word or two in the song. In order to keep the singing interesting for himself during the performance. Well I in my own way as a writer I tweak my own automatic writing in the same manner to keep the discourse with our Angels interesting. So keep that in mind the next time you read a spiritual wisdom statement from my blog and in a published volume.

As always may you be expanded in your horizons by being exposed to notions you would not otherwise consider that you find beneficial.

Enjoy.

==============================

Love & Fear:

1081) In this life we can choose what will motivate us as a whole. Will it be Love or Fear that sets you apart in this lifetime? Karma has no hold on our souls greatest truth a love known as grace. Or a dying fear of sheer torment during this sojourn of our Earthly trek. When you choose poorly then you shall be preyed upon and easily manipulated by your peers via numerous tactics of fear and selfish whims at large. If again you chose wisely then keep on your guard using reason with an unconditional love expressed in moderation. Because a conditional love is flawed as a mixture of demands placed on it by the frail ego always. It has no place being called love in the absolute eyes of God(dess).

Good intentions may often follow a self-justified conditional loving response. However seldom on what you seek becomes what is truly intended in life. More often than not unintended consequences with shallow demands by a conditional love will reign supreme in heartache and mental anguish. An unconditional love on the other hand is harder to practice at first by upholding it. This is not a love without discipline or a backbone as do what you please. It is a bold true love that the romantics of legend and the spiritual saints have practiced with their own life's blood bolstered by convictions. Unconditional Love is divine and godly in faith as it is in a living practice by the secular and the spiritual domain. It is a paradoxical emotional phenomena as gentle and hard simultaneously for it mimics God as both the Constant and the Absolute. By being true to oneself and each other in this life we liberate ourselves in beauty. Love well and deeply, but not as a zealot. Just be as a living form of excellence for us mortals portraying paradoxically our perfection as souls in God's sublime "Holy Spirit". Amen.                                                  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo. 


Balance:

1082) There is a common paradoxical misperception we all face and by most accounts we get it backwards more often than not. What I'm speaking of is the balance of excellence through our physical mortality with all that we think, say, and do. This is in comparison to the perfection of our souls in the Image and Likeness of God as we stand in complete truth. Many with obsessive personalities seek the impossible with perfection in the living flesh. That we act by pursuing it with a folly akin to an eager dog chasing its tail out of habit. Instead I tell you; calm yourselves with patience and seek a gentle moderation by your sincere intentions and actions. Doing so affords you the space of not being your own worst taskmaster.

Otherwise just seek a form of excellence that is warranted by a robust common sense. A common sense that is reasonable and practical with form and action. This will lead you into a holistic pattern of balance without tipping the scales of Life in an unwanted direction. You must not find yourself wavering by being a punitive taskmaster seeking perfection. Then Stop and Breathe by starting over realizing that perfection is only found in the Divine Spirit in essence and not in the substance of mortal flesh of this world. Amen.                                               ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Perspectives:

1083) Those who share various perspectives as points of view irrespective of favoritism. Will be often one of the most considerate in analysis above all others. Having a shrewd foresight of past patterns, dynamics, and trends that may reappear once again under a different light. Sometimes people only judge what is within direct grasp omitting the most likely occurrence of another sort just around the bend. Usually getting stuck solely on short term gains whereby long term highlights or pitfalls are ignored at the peril of all.

It is when others begin to be vilified by doing the right thing out of a positive sense of dutiful intentions. That the hateful rhetoric drowns out any potential gains by making the righteous soul take an unbecoming detour. Sabotaging any gains and if indeed worthy as an ounce of prevention soon becomes apparent the pound of pain is on its way. Only after earning their keeps can the good actors be given the necessary authority and leeway to act without detractors. Attributing the benefit of all including the whiners that are often the first recipients of their justified fruits. Vindication is usually a bittersweet affair having a mighty "I Told You So!". To those who won't be dissuaded until all suffer just like themselves out of trial and error. Fools are often vain and fickle souls immature like a child not knowing what it wants to be pleased with in earnest.

It has always been the courageous to take the first set of risks until the path seems secure enough to be traveled by all. No matter if the others don't quite comprehend the gains to be achieved in results. It boils down to the classical "Fight or Flight" primal response in others. This is where the higher caliber astute souls distinguish themselves from the followers at large. Be this regarding the scale of individuals or up to entire nation States as a living ethos of being alive. The future always belongs to the brave and the bold in action. Be those actions justified at the time or way off base until a further elucidation can be gained of the greater truth as the difficulties in life become revealed for all to see.                               ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
