Developing Your Spiritual Wisdom

Dragon's Eye symbol Koch

My dear light­work­ers, this is Broth­er Thomas of the Sev­enth Ray speak­ing to you today about the top­ic of Spir­i­tu­al Wis­dom. The Dragon’s Eye sym­bol we share with you in the graph­ic above rep­re­sents the deci­sions we make each day between good and evil. The abil­i­ty to choose well is the very def­i­n­i­tion of what it means to be a spir­i­tu­al­ly wise mys­tic.

We are con­cerned about a way of think­ing that is becom­ing more promi­nent on your plan­et. This way of look­ing at the world says one idea is just as wor­thy and valu­able as anoth­er. It argues that, since the cap­i­tal ‘T truth of any mat­ter can­not be ful­ly known, then it fol­lows that all ideas are lit­tle more than com­pet­i­tive thoughts of equal val­ue. Mys­tics should nev­er fall for this type of non­sense. Though you may appear wise to your friends, it is not a sign of spir­i­tu­al advance­ment to believe this way. Just as light is ordered into a spec­trum of fre­quen­cies rang­ing from low to high, so it is with the wor­thi­ness of ideas. Some thoughts and actions are nobler than oth­ers. The very work of a mys­tic is to devel­op an infal­li­ble sen­si­tiv­i­ty that reli­ably ascer­tains those thoughts, words, and activ­i­ties lead­ing to ascen­sion ver­sus those that do not. How might we do this?

Our actions are dri­ven by our egoic nature or the Spark of the Divine. As we devel­op the art­form of con­sult­ing with Source, we ascend on the God-Con­tin­u­um.

It is Spiritual Wisdom to Develop the Art of Harmlessness

The first rule we ask you to adopt is, “Do no harm!” Mys­tics per­fect the art of harm­less­ness! We say harm­less­ness is an art because it takes great skill to learn how to accept all peo­ples apart from their ways of think­ing. Even we, in our loca­tion on the God-Con­tin­u­um, must con­tin­u­ous­ly look for ways of guid­ing our stu­dents with­out inflict­ing judg­ment or harm to the phys­i­cal, men­tal, emo­tion­al, or spir­i­tu­al bod­ies. As we guide you in your lessons, we too must per­fect our ways of lov­ing you while, at the same time, show­ing you the unwor­thi­ness of many of the things you say and do. Like you, we first devel­oped these skills while liv­ing on the earth.

Do not wor­ry if harm­less­ness is a hard les­son for you to mas­ter. It was for us too! Look to the Spir­i­tus Lumine (Divine Light) to show you how to avoid those actions which involve cru­el­ty, judg­ment, belit­tling, mock­ing, or threat­en­ing oth­ers. Remem­ber, it is one thing to judge or weigh the qual­i­ty of a thought or action and anoth­er to judge the human who thinks or acts in less advanced ways.

It is Spiritual Wisdom to Develop Impeccable Honesty

Anoth­er thing mys­tics must do is devel­op an impec­ca­ble sense of hon­esty. Like harm­less­ness, hon­esty and truth­ful­ness are art­forms.  The more truth­ful we become, the more we real­ize that there is more to do. In your world, one is thought an hon­est per­son even when they lie mul­ti­ple times each day. Some in your cul­ture believe dis­hon­esties are nec­es­sary – per­haps even desir­able. The truth is, humans lie because they do not have faith that Source will pro­vide or pro­tect them should they tell the truth. My dear friends, we promise that you will be more hon­est if, every time you are dis­hon­est, you require your­self to cor­rect your mis­take and admit your dis­hon­esty!

To start devel­op­ing this hon­esty art­form, deter­mine to tell the fac­tu­al truth in all things or say noth­ing at all! Telling the truth is a giant step towards ascen­sion – it means we are trust­ing Source no mat­ter the out­come.

If you don’t know the answer to some­thing, don’t make one up as though you do. Admit to the bound­aries of your knowl­edge. When you for­get to do some­thing, tell the truth and admit it. If you are run­ning late to an appoint­ment, acknowl­edge your for­get­ful­ness or mis­judg­ment about the time and ask for for­give­ness. Should you be asked to do some­thing you don’t want to do, speak plain­ly and say, “I would rather not do that.” Don’t make up a con­trived rea­son! Strive to be truth­ful about who you are and what you have done. Don’t exag­ger­ate nor false­ly dimin­ish your abil­i­ties. But most impor­tant­ly, if you have been dis­hon­est, go and make things as right as you can. Right­ing past wrongs and mak­ing per­son­al amends helps one to ascend on the God-Con­tin­u­um.

We are not advo­cat­ing a gra­tu­itous or rad­i­cal hon­esty that harms your­self or oth­ers. It is a form of spir­i­tu­al wis­dom to use your pre­rog­a­tive as a Spir­i­tu­al Sov­er­eign to decide whether or not to tell peo­ple your per­son­al opin­ions and thoughts. How­ev­er, if you choose to share your thoughts and feel­ings, do so with gen­tle­ness, respect, hon­esty, and hum­ble­ness.

It is Spiritual Wisdom to Consult with the Divine

As we stat­ed to you in a recent post enti­tled The Law of Sur­ren­der, ascen­sion is very much relat­ed to sub­li­mat­ing the egoic human will to that of the Divine. This too is a form of spir­i­tu­al wis­dom. Learn­ing to fol­low the Divine-Spark with­in us is also an art form. Like the vesi­ca pisces, the mys­tic strives to main­tain a con­scious­ness anchored between heav­en and earth. We stay cen­tered. Our crown chakra opens to the heav­ens and our root chakra goes deep into Moth­er Earth. As we mys­tics devel­op our abil­i­ties to com­mu­ni­cate with Source-Con­scious­ness, we make deci­sions which move us for­ward on the God-Con­tin­u­um. Nat­u­ral­ly, we have help in this regard because the Uni­verse is always try­ing to get our atten­tion to help us out. To learn more, we encour­age you to read our book chap­ter: Spir­i­tu­al Pings.

In the end, The Divine gives Spir­i­tu­al Wis­dom to all seek­ing its guid­ance. The mes­sages we receive from Source comes from those on the God-Con­tin­u­um that are infi­nite­ly wis­er than we. To become wise, we must refine our ways of com­muning with the Divine and heed­ing its advice.
