Considerations on Discernment

1.    Unflinching self—honesty is the bases for discernment.

2.    Wait to speak, believe, and act. Breathe. Wait a minute.

3.    Unquestioned assumptions are potentially lethal.

4.    Discerning disciples ask: “Do I choose to energize this?”

5.    Discernment fuses intuition, experience and knowledge.

6.    Listen. Question. Evaluate. Choose. Then trust yourself.

7.    Non-critical laughter restores perspective.

8.    Wisdom never judges, but is always discriminating.

9.    Seek inside, not outside, to discern your truth.

10. Discernment reveals the lies behind prejudices.

11. Disciples seek mentors that “walk their talk.”

12. Self-judgments are projected onto others.

Considerations on Knowledge

1.    Knowledge obeys the spiritual law: “Seek and you shall find.”

2.    Knowledge provides the maps; we must make the journey.

3.    Knowledge illuminates the blindness of superstition.

4.    Myths and symbols depict dynamics, not fixed realities.

5.    A “beginner’s mind” is unbiased, and therefore teachable.

6.    Intelligence exists in every atom of life and can be contacted.

7.    Mind is a process, always interacting with other processes.

8.    Wisdom synthesizes the knowledge of mind, body and spirit.

9.    One who knows is free to say, “I don’t know” and learn more.

10.  Knowledge solves and creates mysteries simultaneously.

11. Science is God/Goddess revealed. All seekers are true scientists.

12. Knowledge prepares the vessels that revelation fills.

Considerations on Revelation

1.    Insight can arrive suddenly; integration takes time and effort.

2.    Wisdom fuses pragmatic knowledge and intuitive knowing.

3.    Truth, like flowing water, cannot be captured in a net.

4.    The universe reveals itself through each of its living parts.

5.    The heart can know a truth that the brain merely theorizes.

6.    Angels, teachers, and guides empower; they don’t dictate.

7.    Insight can be a sudden gift or the fruit of daily practice.

8.    Pride in the known and fear of the unknown block revelation.

9.    Messages are everywhere; pay attention and be grateful.

10. Be aware truth speaks universally; be aware of exclusive words.

11. Knowledge carefully builds; revelation suddenly reveals.

12. Snowflakes and sunsets are unique; so are revelations.
