Power and significance is achieved when humans work directly with Nature intelligence in conscious ways to establish balance. We can begin to do this by being attentive to the impressions registered in our surrounding environment. We may not realize that we are subject to such impressions, but we are on some level of consciousness. The ideal is to make such impressions conscious and to reorient the registration of these impacts from an emotional reactivity to the development of a mental responsiveness to spiritual impression – of Spirit grounded into Matter. Sensitivity to spiritual impression has to do with developing an awareness of relationships. It acknowledges through feeling that all things in life are interconnected, intermingling, ever exchanging energies, that nurtures from the point of connection or malnutures from the point of disconnection.
As we become more sensitive to relationships and contacts, something wonderful begins to happen to us. The cloud of inertia over the human brain begins to lift and an awareness of “something more” pervades our consciousness. We recognize that we are lacking in potency and direction with self, others, and estranged from Nature realities. With this dawning awareness of relationship, the crystallized barrier that has been erected over eons to protect the interests of the separated self begins to crack, increasing our capacity to respond to the need of our environment with a spontaneous outflow of a loving heart and an intelligent mind.
Developing sensitivity to spiritual impression is the challenge of the path of spiritual development because silence must be cultivated. Silence is the key to impression because it directs attention of the listener away from the demands of the ego complex or centralized self and inward to the voice of the Soul. There is tremendous power cultivated from an inward focus towards the Soul when there is an impersonal attitude, one of observer. It is from that inward point that we realize that ideas are energy currents available to all minds attuned to those currents. When like minds come together with purpose of human progress and intent for right human relationships ideas bearing solutions to the world’s problems are anchored.
We live in a world where the allures of consumerism are the strongest. We have also in a period of history where science is exploring the outer world governed by natural laws. With this in mind, we are beckoned to conscious participation with the whole of life, in absorption into the imparted truths, so that they become a part of our consciousness.
Everyday we wield energy through our thoughts, words and actions. Let us becomes modes of expression or relaying channels and not delaying points of self-interest in the divine flow.
