Revelations by Swami Nityananda

Let us allow ourselves to relish the true freedom of nonattachment:  allowing to fall away all pettiness, smallness of mind or heart, all rivalry, all competitiveness, all jealousy. Let us compete with one another only to see who can be more loving, more kind, thoughtful, considerate, caring, filled with ease and grace. The prize is infinite love, awarded by infinite love, the recognition that none is any better or worse than anyone else, that all are invited to the divine dance of the Lord! Let us enjoy the infinite oceans of mercy, kindness, and compassion that are available to all of us the moment we allow ourselves to recognize we are precious, we are cherished, we are nurtured, we are loved, we are blessed, we are adored, we are forgiven—and so is everyone else! 
 
Let us allow ourselves to be so pure in heart that we see God in all beings, including ourselves! Let us purify our consciousness, our vision, so that we are able to see with divine sight, recognizing and celebrating unity everywhere. Let us be equal to all—equal to all circumstances, all beings, one with all in pure love. Let us say yes to the divine invitation to realize the Beloved of our heart, the Beloved of our being, the pure life and light that shine forth in gladness and in all human conditions. Let us feel ourselves held in the hands of infinite Love, and let us share that Love with all, in the ways perfect for each one to receive. 
 
Let us be joyful peacemakers, internally and externally. Let us realize that as we integrate all the aspects of ourselves, as we unite ourselves with pure love, with oneness, we are also able to make peace with the world. Our consciousness of oneness goes forth, opening the way before us, guiding our every step to be of joyful service, to recognize that every being we meet is a child of God. We, too, are children of God! We are all invited to dance in the court of the Beloved, to heal all human-created divisions within ourselves and within our world. We are invited to sit down at the banquet of the Kingdom, side by side with everyone—including Jesus's favorite dinner companions, who wouldn't be invited to most dinner tables.
 
Uniting ourselves with our spiritual ideal, we may surmount whatever obstacles come our way. By the grace of the Infinite, we will rise above even the greatest sorrow, even the greatest challenges and misunderstandings. When we encounter incomprehension, we may ask, When was the last time we ourselves did not understand fully? Perhaps only five minutes ago! As we expand our own awareness, we are ever more able to allow others room to do the same. We remain steadfast in our path of unfolding spiritual perfection, able to realize that each moment on the path is perfect, even as we strive for and realize ever more beautiful perfection. And so we, and all we see before us, are divinity in this form, oneness expressing itself in the manyness, and the Kingdom of Heaven is within us and among us, yearning to be realized and claimed.
 
Let us follow in the pathway of the great teacher, entering the holy city. Let us allow all our energies to be united in following our spiritual path and ideal. Let us triumph in peace and glory, in goodness and light, in silence and Stillness. Let us allow divine love to be of total service through us, leading us step by step toward the ultimate fulfillment of our destiny, uniting ourselves with our deepest joy, our highest gladness. Whatever triumphs, whatever challenges, whatever resurrections our journey entails, it is divine love walking through us in the eternal light. It is eternal life expressing itself through us, every moment, every heartbeat, every step. 

Revelations by Swami Nityananda

Let us realize the peace that passeth understanding, the peace that we find within, the peace that flows forth from prayer and meditation and Self-realization, the peace that allows us to truly be of service, knowing that the divine is the only doer. When we come into contact with that peace, we inherit the earth. We are one with all that is. We realize that there is only one will, ever—divine will—and that divine will expresses fully and freely in earth as in heaven. When we are one with divine will, one with divine love, then there is no separation between earth and heaven. There is no human-created wall, border, or boundary that can withstand eternal Love. There is only Love.

Letting go of judgment, anger, and attachment, letting go of grasping and aversion, we may enter into the court of righteousness, joy, and freedom. We may dance and sing and make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Letting go of hunger for temporary satisfactions, we may be filled eternally with that grace which satisfies every hunger—first on an inner level, and then guiding us to whatever outer nourishment will best nourish and strengthen the body-temple. Let us ask ourselves, For what am I truly hungry? Am I pursuing righteousness, which satisfies lasting hunger? Or am I allowing myself to be distracted by passing treats or fancies? Let us allow ourselves to be filled with the plenitude of Oneness, the abundance of pure love and light, which bring lasting joy and clarity.

Let us unite ourselves with our spiritual ideal, and then there is no divorce! Let us marry ourselves to infinite Love, and then our human relationships will express that joyous oneness. Let us be espoused to infinite Love, and then all our human relationships will be visible as a spiritual path—a way to help us be of ever greater service with all whom we meet, all whom we encounter in any way in our lives. Are we willing to let fall away unforgivingness, of ourselves and others? Are we willing to let ourselves be healed, renewed, blessed, so that we might be one with first love? Are we willing to let our every breath be Love breathing through us? Say yes, and Love itself will transform us from within—and our lives and worlds will also be transformed.

Let us allow ourselves to relish the true freedom of nonattachment: allowing to fall away all pettiness, smallness of mind or heart, all rivalry, all competitiveness, all jealousy. Let us compete with one another only to see who can be more loving, more kind, thoughtful, considerate, caring, filled with ease and grace. The prize is infinite love, awarded by infinite love, the recognition that none is any better or worse than anyone else, that all are invited to the divine dance of the Lord! Let us enjoy the infinite oceans of mercy, kindness, and compassion that are available to all of us the moment we allow ourselves to recognize we are precious, we are cherished, we are nurtured, we are loved, we are blessed, we are adored, we are forgiven—and so is everyone else

Revelations by Swami Nityananda

REVELATIONS by Swami Nityananda

Let us enter gladly into the sacred presence of the Sermon on the Mount, summit of inspiration. Jesus, Jeshua, pours forth truth itself, a shining river of light that washes away all pretense, all limitation, all darkness, all fear. Entering into inspiration itself, we, too, may be made new. We, too, may cultivate the consciousness to be one with the outpourings of sacred illumination expressed by Jesus. We may even cultivate the consciousness to touch directly that river of grace, that river of divinity, that river of pure knowingness, pure beingness, which longs to express through each one of us. Will you let yourself be washed clean, made new, lifted up? Will you allow divine light and love and peace and truth to shine through you? Will you allow yourself to receive the sacred presence of inspiration, to be filled with grace, to allow the divine breath to breathe through you, to express the infinite Spirit that is always one with you? Say yes, and your every step will lead you higher, ever higher toward the summit of inspiration.

Letting go of all limitation, all that binds us, we may allow ourselves to be the fullness, the completeness, the perfection of Heaven. We are invited to realize the Infinite, that we may also realize that all we encounter in this realm is embraced by the Infinite—nay, is one with the Infinite. We are oneness, journeying through duality back to oneness, and when we realize that, then even this realm, this madly beautiful world, is a blessing, Oneness itself, an expression of infinite grace, light, peace, hope, wonder, awe, magnificence. The whole journey to healing is wholeness itself. The whole journey to creativity is inspiration itself. The whole journey to union is Love itself. Let go of all concepts, all constrictions, all suffering, and be free. Let go of the illusion of separateness, and rejoice in serving divinity in all. Let us walk hand in hand, side by side, every step of the way to Heaven, and let us rejoice that we are in Heaven all along.

Mourning lasts for the night, and joy comes in the morning. We sing with the Psalmist, rejoicing that even grief shares its gifts with us. We find ourselves stronger, wiser, renewed, more grateful, more aware of the blessings infinite grace pours down upon us. We find steadiness and healing in the light and love that are always available to us. We honor and celebrate and give thanks for the infinite gifts we have been given, even as we welcome new light dawning on the horizon. We look upon all experiences as our gracious teachers. We allow sorrow to be transmuted into compassion. We allow pain to be a guide, to help us expand and respond more perfectly and beautifully as divine love calls us to respond, to ourselves and to all we meet. We rejoice and give thanks that all the gifts we have been given are to be shared, blessed, and multiplied. Let us be more grateful, more joyful, more loving, more of service, more welcoming, more expansive, more kind. Let us bathe in the light of infinite Love, and let us rest in the arms of Comfort itself.
