MORE INSPIRING READINGS FOR MINISTERS
Stand By This Faith
Stand by this faith. Work for it and sacrifice for it.
There is nothing in all the world so important as to be loyal to this faith
which has placed before us the loftiest ideals,
Which has comforted us in sorrow, strengthened us for noble duty and made
the world beautiful.
Do not demand immediate results but rejoice that we are worthy to be entrusted
with this great message,
That you are strong enough to work for a great true principle without counting
Go on finding ever new applications of these truths and new enjoyments in
their contemplation, always trusting in the one God which ever lives and
-From Olympia Brown, as seen in Singing the Living Tradition, the Unitarian
II Cor. 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the
new law; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but
the spirit giveth life.
A Person Will Worship Something
A person will worship something-- have no doubt about that.
We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts
-- but it will out.
That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our
lives, and character.
Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are
worshipping we are becoming.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
A Lifelong Sharing
Love cannot remain by itself -- it has no meaning.
Love has to be put into action and that action is service.
Whatever form we are,
able or disabled,
rich or poor,
it is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing,
a lifelong sharing of love with others.
To Be of Use
I want to be with people who submerge in the task,
Who go into the fields to harvest and work in a row and pass the bags
Who stand in the line and haul in their places,
Who are not parlor generals and field deserters but move in a common rhythm
when the food must come in or the fire be put out.
The work of the world is common as mud. Botched, it smears the hands,
crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done has a shape that satisfies, clean and
Greek amphoras for wine or oil, Hopi vases that held corn, are put in museums
but you know they were made to be used.
The pitcher cries for water to carry and a person for work that is real.
People say, what is the sense of our small effort. They cannot see
that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time.
A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions.
Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that.
No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless.
There's too much work to do.
A Galactic Fairy Tale
by Michael Lightweaver, firstname.lastname@example.org
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there were all of these little
light beings just hanging out enjoying life in that joyful & timeless
dimension. And then one day a very large, magnificent angel came to them.
He had a very serious look on his face. He was looking for volunteers for
a very important cosmic mission.
"We have this small - but very special - planet out at the edge of the Alcyon
galaxy called Gaia. It is quite unique like a beautiful garden and it is
teeming with hundreds of thousands of different life forms. It has been something
of an experimental station in the galaxy and it has a most interesting humanoid
life form that incorporates the very highest and lowest frequencies known
in the cosmos. It is in fact the very epitome of dualism. On the one hand
it is an incredibly beautiful life form and is capable of carrying the highest
frequencies of love, light & joy known throughout the whole Universe.
On the other hand it is capable of carrying the densest and darkest frequencies
the cosmos has ever experienced - frequencies which the rest of creation
evolved beyond eons ago.
Here is the current situation. Within the domain of time, this planet goes
through periodic cosmic cycles. It is now coming to the end of two major
cycles - a 2,000 year long age of Pisces and the 25,000 year long cosmic
year in its journey around Alcyon, the central sun of the milky way galaxy.
With the completion of this cycle, many things are coming to an end and many
things are about to begin. But most importantly, the planet is experiencing
an infusion of light that is dramatically increasing it's frequency. As during
any major time of transition, there will be a certain amount of turbulence.
Some of this will be geological, for Gaia herself is a living planet and
is also evolving. But much of it also involves the hominoid species that
dominates the planet.
This will not be a particularly easy time for the species - especially for
those who are sleeping and those who are vibrating at the lowest frequencies.
As the frequency changes it will create insecurity which in turn will create
The first era of evolution on this planet was the physical era and the key
word was survival. The second era, which is now ending, was the mental era
and the key word was logic. The third era, which is now beginning, is the
era of the heart and the key word is love. This is the highest frequency.
Those who currently hold the reign of power on the planet are of the old
order of the physical & mental. To the extent that they can make a graceful
transition to a heart centered and divinely guided life, it will be an easy
transition. To the extent that they are unable to do this, they will experience
So this is the current situation of Gaia. The reason I am here is to seek
volunteers who would be willing to incarnate in humanoid form on the planet
at this time to help make this an easy and smooth transition. We have sent
prophets and teachers in the past. Very often they were brutally persecuted
or killed. In other instances they were set up as "gods" to be worshiped
and these humanoids built elaborate religions and rituals around them and
used these religions to control each other. They did everything except follow
the simple teachings that were offered.
So this time we are trying a different approach. No more prophets, saviors
& avatars that they can use to create religions. This time we are sending
in thousands - actually hundreds of thousands - of ordinary light beings
with only two assignments:
1) Stay in your heart. Regardless of what happens, stay in your heart.
2) Remember who you are, why you are here and what this is all about.
Now that seems easy enough, right? Unfortunately, No! As I have said, duality
has reached its peak on this planet. This species has perfected the illusion
of good and evil. The greatest challenge you will experience is to remember
Who You Really Are, Why You Are Here and What This Is Really All About. When
you remember, you will be able to stay in your heart, regardless of external
So how will you know when you are forgetting? It is easy. Watch your judgments.
The moment you notice that you are in a place of judgment you will know that
you have forgotten Who You Really Are, Why You Are Here and What This Is
Really All About. That will be your signal.
Now here is the challenge. Life on this planet will require a great deal
of discernment - wise evaluation of what is true, what is appropriate and
what is for the highest good, both for yourself and for the planet. In many
ways discernment is similar to judgment. However, you will know when you
are in judgment and when you have moved out of your heart when you are in
a place of blame.
We know how challenging that this planet can be. We know how very real the
illusions on this planet appear to be. We understand the incredible density
of this dimension and the pressure you will face. But if you survive this
mission - and it is a voluntary one - you will evolve at hyperspeed.
We also should say that we know that some of you who will go to this planet
as starseeds will never germinate - never awaken to the remembrance of who
you really are. Some of you will awaken and begin to shine, only to be choked
down by the opinions and prevailing thoughtforms around you. Others will
awaken and remain awake and your light will become a source of inspiration
and remembrance for many.
You will incarnate all over the planet; in every culture, every race, every
country, every religion. But you will be different. You will never quite
fit in. As you awaken you will realize that your true family isn't those
of your own race, culture, religion, country or even your biological family.
It is your cosmic family - those who have come as you have come - on assignment
to assist in ways large and small in the current transition.
True brotherhood and globalization in its highest form will come only in
remembering Who You Really Are, Why You Are Here and What This Is Really
All About. It will come as you return to the true temple of Divine Presence,
your heart, where this remembrance takes place and from which you are called
to serve the world.
So, are your ready? Good!
Oh, and by the way, there are a couple of other minor things I should
Because of the density, you can't operate in that dimension without a space
suit. This is a biological suit that actually changes over time. There are
many things we could tell you about this but our orientation time is short
so I think you can just jump in and experience it. You should be forewarned,
however. There will be a danger that if you forget who you really are, you
may think you ARE your space suit instead of the fact that it is simply your
vehicle in that dimension. Once there, you will notice that there is an infinite
variety of space suits and a great deal of attention given to these. However,
in spite of the infinite variety, because this a planet of duality, they
all fall into two basic categories called 'genders.' Again, we really don't
have time to go into this now. But you will find your relationship with your
own space suit to be most instructive and interesting.
The other little thing is this. In order to operate in that dimension, you
will also receive a microchip called a 'personality.' This is like an identity
imprint that, along with your space suit, will essentially make you different
from everyone else. This will allow you to participate in the hologram there
- something they call 'consensus reality.' Once again, there will be a real
danger that you will become so engrossed in the holographic personality dramas
that you will forget who you really are and actually think that you ARE your
personality. I know it sounds rather unbelievable right now, but once you
Again, there is so much more we could tell you by way of orientation, but
we think you can learn the rest experientially 'on site.' The only thing
that is important is to remember Who You Really Are, Why You Are Here and
What This Is Really All About. If you can do that, everything else will work
out fine. But take note: So few really DO remember this they stand out as
'different' and others called them 'Enlightened' or 'Awakened' and similar
terms. Strange isn't it?
Well, Good Luck & Bon Voyage!!!
