This Week’s Quotation:
The holy spirit does not have to be caused to come, as if by some special dispensation something should be released from God as a bolt of lightning to flash into the earth; for the holy spirit is everywhere at all times present. The holy spirit is seeking those forms through which it may manifest on earth, and the outpouring of the holy spirit always comes when the forms through which it may appear are provided. It is not required that a certain period of time shall pass, that individuals must wait for some certain date or reach some certain age, but only that the forms through which the holy spirit may appear shall be provided in accordance with the Law. Then the holy spirit pours out of heaven into the world and is made manifest on earth. Wheresoever human beings allow themselves to come to point, in balance, with respect to the spirit of love and the spirit of truth, and the spirit of life, so that, being obedient to the Law, such individuals open themselves in full response to the living God, then, in that moment, the outpouring of the holy spirit IS a reality on earth.~ lloyd Arthur Meeker
The Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
I have reported elsewhere how the Attunement practice was developed out of the Christian culture of America in the 1930s, ‘40s, and ’50s. The passage above reflects that background, familiar to some and less familiar to others.
If it is familiar to you, I urge you not to jump to the conclusion that the Christian terminology means exactly what it means in a more traditional context. And if it is not familiar to you, consider what the words mean relative to the process of Attunement and not as a matter of belief or dogma.
With fresh eyes, what is being said? I have chosen this quotation because it gives the practitioner profound insight into the Attunement process. Firstly, what is the outpouring of the holy spirit? It is the empowerment of the individual by the creative powers that animate the human experience. It is opening to and responding to those creative powers that bring love to the heart, truth to the mind, and life to the body. And it is not one homogeneous creative stream. It is threefold.
The process by which this happens is the second part of the profound message here—the Law. This is not a human law. It is not a religious law. It is the foundational principle behind the human experience. This Law is spiritual science that is as consistent as gravity. When we respond to the ever-available creative power of the universe, it flows through us. And if you don’t respond, it doesn’t flow.
Because we are conscious beings by nature, our response has to be conscious. Even though there is an innate, unconscious response by the physical body, that is limited and inadequate for human health and fulfillment at all levels without an open mind and heart.
Holy spirit… Yes, the source of our being is holy, not because it is religious, but because life is holy. And it is spirit. The origin of that word is breath. It is the universal breath, animating our human experience.
Welcome holy spirit. Let it in. Attune to it. And let it flow through you into the world.
