This Week’s Quotation:
The first step is the development of poise, and in poise is found peace, and out of peace comes true power. Such a person is aglow with radiant charm, and that charming personality must be used wisely to uplift and serve mankind, else it will be fastened upon by some human leech who would defile the purity of such life expression. Therefore the next step is the development of that peculiar ability to radiate light, love, and life freely, and give the bread of life to all who seek, and yet maintain that pure reserve through which nothing but the pure can penetrate.~ Lloyd Arthur Meeker
Poise, Peace, and Power
Hmm. Aglow with radiant charm. Personality. Who wouldn’t want that?
But of course, this passage addresses an experience that goes way beyond any middle school concept of being attractive.
From the perspective of the Attunement process, it is good to know that there is a higher purpose for our personhood. Our personhood can be lit up by divine light, warmed by the highest love, and activated by the vigor of life. And when it is, we bring those qualities to the people around us.
Isn’t there joy in that process? Of course, in the world in which we live, there might be people who reject us for the light we shine. Or who try to take advantage of our love. Someone might be so entrenched in the doldrums of their existence that they don’t want any part of the dynamism we bring.
But still, my experience is that at least some people welcome these qualities and welcome me when I bring them. That is a joy. And then, we have the opportunity to share the magic of reciprocity and the Attunement process.
The alternative is not good. Cover your light? Cut off your love? Stop being animated by life?
Martin Luther King, Jr. said that “Hate is too big of a burden to bear. I have decided to love.”
I say, “Darkness and ignorance is too heavy a burden to bear. Death is too great a burden to bear.”
I choose life. And I embrace Lloyd Arthur Meeker’s formula that leads to the generation of life energy.
Poise. Peace. Power.
