Light Up As Thy Son


Light Up As Thy Son

Be at one with God’s pure dawning,
As Light unfolds Her Way:
Remove all self, see Christ so shine!
Reflect, rejoice, and pray.

That light of Truth glows everywhere –
There is no dark to see.
I feel at rest, for this I know,
Wrong thinking cannot be.

Breathe deep and feel Love fill your heart,
For God is in control,
And every action plays its part
In proving life in Soul.

So, listen in, and let God’s thought
Be just what flows as me.
For then whatever Mind has planned
Is done immediately!

Dear Father-Mother Love, my All,
You do what needs be done!
I feel all pressure lifting off:
And light up as Thy Son!

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Isaiah 60:1,19

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

“The eyes of your spirit allow revelation-light to enter into your being. If your heart is unclouded, the light floods in! Matthew 6:22 The Passion Translation

I Am The Proof


I AM THE PROOF

This mortal body is not me,
Indeed it simply cannot be!
Matter clearly cannot define
What is eternal and divine.

And as the sun dispels all mist,
It’s clear that matter can’t exist –
Never could be in God’s own thought –
For what He made is Spirit wrought!
Sin, Sickness, Death, just disappear!
All is God: and I am His heir.

Everything shines with Love’s own light,
In eagerness of Life’s pure might.

“ME” is truly Mind Expressed:
Mind my motion, and my rest.

Divine the Body which is One:
For Man in Christ is God’s own Son.

Dear Father, I am one with Thee.
PERFECT IMMORTALITY!

I am the proof of what You see!

 

“I and my Father are one.” John 10:30

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God”
Romans 8:16

Love giveth to the least spiritual idea might, immortality, and goodness, which shine through all as the blossom shines through the bud. SH 518:19-21

Eve’s Dream

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The serpent smiled and said, “Do let me in:
Once in your thought I’ll get under your skin!
We can be good friends, just trust what I say –
You’re free to choose: Let me show you the way.
Simply just listen: temptation’s no trick:
In less than a second my nice thought will stick!
All you need do is just talk here with me,
I’ll tell you the truth about every tree.
I know what you want, – to be like a god,
To be much more than just raised from the sod.
The God that you love has sold you quite short;
You need to know evil to win my support.
Just disobey Him, – the apple do eat:
You will find it delicious, – an absolute treat!
The both of you will become very wise,
Strange just one mouthful will open your eyes!”

I spared him a thought, what he said seemed true:
It took just the one for his lies to pour through.

That little word “Just”, – temptation’s best friend.
Don’t be fooled! Don’t listen. Don’t dare descend!
Suggesting that sin is easy to do
Just makes an assumption error is true!
The Eve dream is false, for how can we fall
When our God is infinite, All-in-all.
We can’t be tempted, – don’t let error win:
The answer so simple. Don’t be took in!

God made us perfect, wake up from Eve’s dream!
In infinite Love there is no weak seam.
At one with the Father no one can fall.
There is nothing can tempt; God’s Love is ALL.

The favourite words of error may be “if”, “when”, “just”, “compare”. They don’t exist in Principle, where “Only”, “Now” and “All” reign supreme. There is nothing to tempt man, forever at one with God, nor could man, in His image and likeness, ever be tempted.

Jonah

Jonah

Now God I’ve made a habit of obedience to You,
But this last thing You’ve asked of me is not what I will do.
For Nineveh as You have said is such a rotten place,
It’s hardly right I should go there and show my honest face!
Now just this once I’m going to think about someone called “me”,
So, You look out for Nineveh, while I’ll be off to sea!

So off I went to Joppa, paid my ticket, got on boat,
Set sail to go to Tarshish with a big lump in my throat!
I’d hoped He hadn’t seen me, but the chance was pretty slim,
There’s not a lot, if anything, gets past Almighty Him!
The boat set sail, so far so good; I’m going to get some kip.
While I’m asleep and out of sight, I’m safe inside this ship.

But then a mighty tempest broke fast against the vessel,
Worthy men sweat hard and long against this unfair wrestle.
They cried in fear unto their gods to rescue them from death,
And cast forth all their wares and goods with their remaining breath.
I am awoke by pleas and shouts, and then they cast them lots,
The situation’s urgent as we’re doing fifty knots!

I do confess, when they do ask, the whole thing’s down to me;
I didn’t listen to my God and now I’m all at sea!
“I tell you, just cast me now into the boiling water”,
But first, they tried to save us all: still seemed certain slaughter!
The sea got worse, it beat them back, the whole thing very odd.
They took me up and cast me forth. The sea went calm. Thank God!

I fell into the deep grey sea, their boat back under sail.
My life at risk, I’m sinking fast when swallowed by this whale!
Like some bad dream I’m still alive, quaking like a jelly:
God provided shelter in this fish’s bulging belly!
I pray and pray, for I have sinned, I truly do repent.
For three long days and nights I pray. Its time that is well spent.

I don’t know how but suddenly I end up on dry land.
The last few days have certainly not gone as I had planned!
The word of God comes once again, and this time I agree.
And I preach this simple message. Repent and you’ll be free!
I should have known that God is All and His word is the best.
In strict obedience is peace: in Love there is true rest!

[Oh delightful paradox! In compliance we do find
Only then is freedom found when we know One Mind.]

Look On Us

Look on us

“And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said “Look on us.”

Not the look of worthless pity gave they,
That makes more miserable a man already Satan-bound;
Nor of contempt, the “I am better than thou”, –
The hurried steps to leave alone as found.
NO! Here an active deed of unselfed love.
Peter saw him, and spiritually discerned with surest gaze
The perfect man, whole, complete, a fellow child of God.

“Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee:
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk”

And he saw too, lifted up by Peter’s knowing praise
To see himself as whole indeed, no longer to live
Upon the alms of man, but in the freedom of the Lord!

“And he leaping up stood, and walked….
Walking and leaping and praising God.”

So too for us; may we so leap to see:
To walk with God, is Love’s reality.

Elijah and the Still Small Voice

Elijah and the still small voice

My life in danger, to this cave I have fled:
My God has provided and given me bread;
For foes seek my life to take it away,
So, scared to go out, and affrightened, I stay.

“What doest thou here, Elijah?” rings in thought
“Is this hiding what service to God has now brought?”
But the enemy’s strong, too strong for just me:
“Go forth and stand forward: My message you’ll see!”

A great and strong wind gusts with power and might;
It blows down huge rocks from their mountainous height.
They crash to the ground, and their impact is clear,
But deep down I know that the Lord is not there.

An earthquake shatters the rocks all around
And chasms appear in the trembling ground.
The power is awesome as I stand and stare,
But the message remains: the Lord is not there.

A fire bursts forth, and with flame the land lit:
The landscape burns bright, and rocks blister and split.
There seems no escape from this heat everywhere,
But once more this knowledge: the Lord is not there.

A strange calm replaces the forces that raged:
An infinite stillness that time never aged.
My fears fall away, for a voice sure yet small
Says clearly within me. “Fear not. God is All”.

Let quietness and stillness be my assured choice,
For only in listening can I hear God’s voice:
No matter what challenge attacks, gives alarm,
I know now so clearly, with God, there’s no harm.

God says: “I am Soul, omnipotent All,
I hold you secure: and you never can fall.
The tender touch of My infinite power
Is always besides you. I’m with you each hour.”

And just like both Moses and Joseph before,
God now directs me that I do that much more.
His radiant glory enlightens my way,
I must now go forward. I cannot just stay.

Oh, show me dear Father this way I must go,
To share with Thy children the Love all must know, –
For it’s only through Love we can express Soul:
To understand Life, is to fulfill Life’s role.

“My soul shall be joyful in my God” Isaiah 61:10
“The very circumstance, which your suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel entertained unawares” S&H 574:27-30

I Dreamed a Dream

I dreamed a dream

The readiness of Joseph, something to sing about…..

“I dreamed this dream, magicians bold,
Do tell me what it meant?”
And out of all the wisest men,
There was no answer sent.

Now Joseph never lost his faith,
The Lord stayed by him true;
Two years unjustly imprisoned,-
No bitterness he knew.

When the need for Joseph came,
Mentally he was ready.
Oh, what a lesson for mankind!
His spirit had kept steady.

At last he came out of prison,
Was shaved and clothed afresh.
He knew that God was his Father:
They saw him as just flesh.

“I dreamed a dream O mortal man
And I wondered what it means?
There is no one here can help me,
Can you interpret dreams?”

And there he stood before Pharoah,
Did he feel strange or odd?
His reply came straight from the heart:
“My standing is of God.”

And with the Spirit Joseph spoke;
The dream it was revealed:
For with God’s wisdom all was clear,
And harmony was sealed.

Oh Holy Spirit wash me through,
True humbleness please find:
In patient trust, when I let go,
I see unfolding Mind.

Oh Let me learn from Joseph’s love,
With understanding true,
To be awake is not to dream,
It is to be with You.

Love is Everything

Love is everything

 

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”. Matt 22:39

O Lord my God let love for Thee
Take over all my being,
Let recognition of true self
Just flood through all I’m seeing.

In gratitude for God’s great Love
I find my life in You.
And thus I find Your Love o’erflows,
In everything I do.

©2017 Ken G Cooper Taken from my book “Unlock Potential – With Love”.

In God’s dear Love where we belong,
Her Love is gentle, His Love strong.
It does not matter where we are –
Whether here or very far,
Boundless Mind protects us all;
For wisdom covers every call.
Listen, feel, Love’s infinite touch:
God loves us all, so very much.

When we love, we find Love……….when we find Love, we love more…………
