Holy Hangover Batman! The Gathering at 7 Oaks was a personal milestone for me. Seldom in my life can I recall feeling such great success at my own endeavors. Being with colleagues and fellow students some of whom were in the original MIchael Group aka Messages from Michael – vis-a-vie Chelsea Quinn-Yarbro, granted me a place in the constellation of the Michael Universe that was only a glimmer for me before.
My muse, or True Play as Michael would characterize it, has always been the pursuit of levity! If I ain’t laughing, I’m sinking!
Some recent channeling I received explained more about the nature of prayer, its function, what it does for us, and how with repetition, it can move your mind and emotions into an attitude where action becomes more immediate and more effective.
About Prayer: Or call it focused intention.
Prayer is talking to myself! Oh yes, I might believe that I am being listened too by whatever one calls God, no matter if you refer to it as: Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Spirit, Universe, TAO, or Source. But if I speak my invocation aloud; my intended target might be God, but it is my own hearing which is the first receiver!
This article is in response to a submission by a reader.
The subject expressed nostalgia for the “good old days.” In my opinion, they exposed the negative pole of the Emotional Center, sentimentality about the a past that people espouse and seem to yearn for.
In a conversation with a friend of mine, she mentioned that while reading a couple of my recent newsletters, she determined that their short length was a hint that something had happened to me. Her actual words were “what have you done with my Cocconi?” The implication, of course, that since I am better known for my verbosity, than my brevity, something was amiss with me. I’m taking the 5th! No not a fifth of tequila (though it sounds tempting); nor the fifth amendment – where I withhold from you in fear of being self incriminating; but the 5th Internal Monad.(IM)..aka “review of life task.”
Recently my Priest friend Richard and I had a lengthy discussion. He introduced me to a method of study that caused my mind to light-up with the implications. Thoughts and images began reshuffled in my mind while new ideas were formed to fill in the gaps. He contrasted the notions of thin narrative versus that of a thick narrative.
Can you believe it?
Seldom does anyone question the hard “truths” of science…except when a new theory comes along to replace them.
In the book Job KJV 12:7 to 12:13 it states:
7) But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 8) Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 9) Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? 10) In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. 12) With the ancient is wisdom; and in length in days understanding. 13) With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
For thousands of years, Man has sought understanding and power. Their most immediate point of reference has been Nature. And its most visible mirrors have been the lives and behavior of animals.
