The Way of the Child




"Ojai Christmas"  by Sandy Jones 




From William Samuel's Unpublished Private Journal -   1982       

The Child's Way and the Holy Spirit are the same 

The Child’s Way is the Way of the Holy Sprit.

The Child’s Way is the Christ Light’s Way.

The experience of the Holy Spirit is the point at which one touches the Chid’s path.  The experience of being “born again” (which one FEELS and KNOWS is unique and wonderful, unlike anything that has happened in his life before) is the birth of the subjective idea wherein one is becoming acquainted with the INTERNAL nature of Being and the Universe. 

The study of subjectivism is the external school of the Child, though I don’t know a single metaphysics in the world (except for original Christianity and Original Taoism) which knows of the significance of the Child within us.

Granted, theology certainly speaks of the Soul of Man and its importance, but somewhere the Soul’s identity as the Child of God--which is the Child one IS--was lost and is no longer taught. 

Perhaps the return of this idea constitutes what Jesus spoke of as the Comforter that comes following.   If so, these words come to hail the Comforter which comes to do all things. Whatever may be the case, there is no doubt in my mind that this work heralds the beginning of the blossoming of the Tree of Life, the final flowering, the Seed of which will be the Chosen, the plucked and taken away into another time and space.  There become the New Planting for the next Pulse of Light, somewhere else in Godhead. 

Those who perceive this Idea will become part of the new community of Correspondents whose efforts will become dramatically synergistic to their own amazement and take place ABOVE the battles that will rage full fledged around them.  These Children will take no sides. They will battle neither for the right nor the left,  neither for the right nor the wrong, nor even for the good against the evil, knowing a higher Good that transcends even as it encompasses all human concepts. They will be cognizant of the reasons for the worlds struggles, but as they live  in the world and until the seed corn is gathered by God Himself they will continue to Love God with all their hearts and minds and they will love all mankind as themselves, constantly acting in their behalf for Good.

ABOUT SHORTAGES, CATASTROPHES,




Artwork "Cat On Red" by Sandy Jones 

Celestial Song 




NOTES FROM WOODSONG   By William Samuel 



ABOUT SHORTAGES, CATASTROPHES, FLOODS, CRIME, GRITS 
AND A WORLD GENERALLY GOING MAD

If we expect the end of human problems, global problems, problems in nature or from cosmic reaches, the end begins here and now with the Awareness viewing these words.  One does not arrive at the end of catastrophes, shortages, wars—personal or global—while waiting for OTHERS to discover the truth WITH us.  No!  If we wait for others to discover and live the truth with us, we wait in vain past the midnight hour.  ALONE, all alone, we begin right here and do the job for our world OURSELF!  As Awareness, we do this ourself.  The Millennial Peace begins with YOU reader.  The heralded Era lies in you hands of comprehension—not a government’s, not in many working in organizational concert.  The onus is yours to act on here and now!  So, we get at it!……not we, but I.  “I” get busy and return to the beginning.  I return to the primal Christ light that observes and understands the perfection before it.  I do.  Not my others.  Others see this example perhaps and as an added thing may go and do likewise.  But, the perception of others perceiving and beginning to live the Truth comes as intellectual confirmation and really isn’t important, for even when we see the world still destroying beliefs and dreams of misplaced value, we understand THAT appearance too—and understand why it is good.  Not bad—good!

The tangible Millennium yet to be seen in space-time awaits ones UNDERSTANDING what is before the eyes.  There is no need to change ANYTHING but there is the divine command to UNDERSTAND everything.  Where does that start if not HERE as I-awareness?  With others? No. With I.  We, as the wisdom and comprehension of God, look for the perfect reason undergirding every appearance.  “EVERY appearance?  Aren’t some of them illusion and dream?”  EVERY APPEARANCE.  The dream has its reason for appearing too, else how would one know gentle dreamlessness?

There are those who come to us asking.  What do we tell them?  That THIS Awareness reading these words is the Christ life, finally come to set all things straight.  “Even the affairs of the world?”  ESPECIALLY  the affairs of the world!  “How?”  By understanding appearances within Awareness and the perfect reason for their existence. 

We end the fixation with personal affairs to tend the world scene, the WHOLE scene!  The grand librarian LaoTse wrote, Understand the All, the Whole, and that alone…Be the stream of the UNIVERSE--- the sage takes care of ALL men and abandons no one.  He takes care of ALL things and abandons NOTHIING.  This, he said, is called ‘Following the Light.’

Again, that keeper of words who wrote so few, said, “Understand Virtue (perfection) in yourself and Virtue will be real…comprehend virtue in the universe and virtue will be everywhere!”  Who is to do this if not this one whom you call I?  Someone else?  There is no one else.  Someone out there?  There are none out there.  ALL are within This Awareness being I.

“The world is a perfect vessel that cannot be improved.”  Yes, yes—but how this flouts the scientific, judgmental opinion that sees everything going straight to hell!  How many times LaoTse must have been asked,  “If all is perfect, master, then what are we to DO?”  His answer again and again, “Non-action is All-action.”

That “inscrutable answer” can be comprehended now.  Listen softly.  The attempt to balance, heal, secure or correct the world scene is shadow play—sheer foolishness that has become so futile a child can see its headlong plunge into chaos, carnage.  BUT TO COMPRENEND WHY THE SCENE BEFORE THE EYES IS PERFECT JUST AS IT IS is to BEHOLD the scene healed, balanced, righted and secure.  Immediately!  NOW!  Without wait and without effort; without the horrendous human struggle that avails nothing but disquiet. 

We comprehend, we understand, we know.  This is the non-action that is ALL action.  This is the wisdom that appears to the eye as the healing of the nations.  We want the Millennial Peace that brings the end of sin, sickness, disease and death?  Then we BE it!  Nothing less will do.  We BE it consciously!  We gird up our loins and BE it—then DO what that being demands!  These words are just such a doing. 

The attempt to heal a situation, personal or worldwide, is primarily the old sense of self at work.  Ah, but to UNERSTAND old-self at work is Self at work, Self’s comprehension of Self.  To UNDERSTAND personal or worldwide inequities is Self’s comprehension of Self.  Self’s comprehension of Self perceives the reasons for, thence the END of, self and its inequities, individual or worldwide.  This is the ‘way’ of enlightenment.  “This is called Following the Light.”  This is the healing of the nations.

REFRESHING WATER CLOSE BY

If people give me smiles because I smile at them, I suspect there are some who can give a cool drink of water too, should I need it.  Just as the tree along the river bank, I receive from within; I receive from without—inside and outside the same. 

 I remember my first journey across a desert.  When things began to seem hopeless, when the first hints of anguish began to appear, someone always appeared with water—cool, refreshing water—respite from thirst and discouragement.

So it is, there is always an oasis near us—within/without us—being all there is TO us.  Sometimes that refreshing aspect of Selfhood appears an inner glimmer along the pathway of inner search.  But as often as not, its confirmation comes as someone who, while appearing ‘out there,’ is PLAINLY another view of the Selfhood-I-Am, capable of showing us the tangible water we thirst for—clear water, clean water, undistorted and healing water.

About Love - A Personal Letter



"Autumn Afternoon"  by Sandy Jones 


A Personal Letter about Love 
From William Samuel  to Sandy Jones  - 
Written 1986

This letter, along with many other personal letters sent to me from William Samuel, can be found in my book "Barefoot at Heart-The Alchemy of Love and the Power of Light" - I joyfully share it here with all of you. It's quite special and brimming with liberating brilliance. Certainly written to the heart of each and all of us.   -   Sandy Jones 



Dear Sandy, 

There are many new things to write, Sandy. They all have to do with life and love, enthusiasm and childlikeness. They have to do with simplicity and tenderness, gentleness and the fact of Already.  The new words have nothing to do with problems, or paradoxes, intellectualism or personality. 

Furthermore, they are difficult to write, they are difficult to say, because the old nature of us misconstrues, distorts and attempts to turn them into something ugly. So, I hesitate. 

The day is coming when these things will be listened to without so much askance  and without such violent reaction. The fact is Reality is real, Reality is perfect, Reality is all. Transcendent Reality being all there is to the consciousness presently reading these words.

One may say that at this moment consciousness seems to be filled with problems. But the believing that this is so merely gives authority to the seeming. We do not deny the seeming, we leave it, we let it alone and the power goes out of it.   If the bird appears to eat a cricket, so what? Isness still Is, Perfection is still Perfect, All is still All, this Identity being us is still God’s Self Identification and nothing we say or believe, or do not say, or fail to understand, can alter this Fact one iota.  

Strange as it may seem, there is a violent reaction within us when we finally get down to Reality Itself.  You see, the old nature struggles vehemently to maintain its position. For most of us it requires a good stiff kick to alter our old opinions. But new light comes from the altered view, never from the old position.

Sandy, you are a monumental and perfect you. Because perfection Itself is being all you are.  There are many wonders in store for you and yours, as you go about the happy business of just being.

Now, you are an artist, and you will know the wisdom of running off with uninhibited, unbound feeling you see as Love. Now, it is tempered by the intellect, but Love is the leader. Hidden at the center of this feeling and barely noticed, is a sense of peace, tranquillity, serenity, a very gentle joy. It is the absence of elation the absence of discomfort. Oh but it is the transcendent presence of that which is being all sensation, all feeling.  Now when you find this center, you will be delighted, for you will know that you have found another aspect of the Infinite Identity you are.

This is the happiness that nothing can take from us.  This is the Peace that does not ebb and flow between serenity and sadness.

When next you ride up the valley where your special place is, rest for a time under one of your oaks, sit loose and feel whatever comes to be felt.  Listen, listen to the heart and you will hear it and you will be refreshed.  

Who ever you think of at that time, think of love and feel the love you feel for that love is real and it is unbound and understands all things.  God the Simple Truth is Love. 

Love is not fickle, love does not blow warm one day and cold the next, love is consistently Its Self.  Love, love looks and Lives.   Love understands because love is understanding, love doesn’t condemn itself or anyone else.   Love is not guilty, love is not restrictive, it’s not bound, it’s not confined or contained, love is not beholden to any institution.  All institutions exist by virtue of the fact that love Is, if indeed they exist at all. Love is not bound by the institution of marriage at all.  Its silly for any of us, whether we appear to be in that institution or out of it, or a part of it or not a part of it, it is silly to believe  that that institution is capable of providing us happiness or depriving us of happiness  -- It simply can’t do it, not really, not when we see that Love, this Identity I am has the dominion.

Love, there is only one Love, Love is love, it has no opposite.  All Love is love, human love, personal love, sexual love, are all an aspect of infinite love which cannot be bound, cannot be circumscribed, cannot be confined, love, just simple love, whether we spell it with a capital letter or not, we mean the same Love, the very same Love, the very nature of being, the one that God is -- the God that is Love, the Love that is Identity, here as I, as all. 


Singleness reveals the gentle Simplicity of singleness, the mysteries answered.

I know what leads you, Sandy, and I trust you, you are important to us all. Bill

Human Government






Excerpt from


"The Child Within Us Lives! A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics"
by William Samuel

55
*****
BEING OPEN TO THE NEW



HUMAN GOVERNMENT
Totalitarian governments, right or left, disparage God. Why?


Because their control over church people is not complete. Exactly so, churchdom in the world unwittingly disparages the subjective idea because the people who truly find subjectivism cannot be controlled very well either. The subjectivist is as weird to the common man as the quantum physicist is to the ordinary scientist. Yet, subjectivism discovered and lived will eventually be as catalytic in the human experience and all of its institutions, and do as much for them, as the subjectivism of quantum has done (and will do) for the sciences.
Unchallenged religion, like unchallenged government, has led to racism, concentration camps and sycophantic, half-sleeping followers pushed into one holy war after another. Now, another Holy War looms, perhaps the last. Only the Child within us escapes the final oppression of exclusive externalism. “I alone am escaped to tell thee” are the words the suffering Job heard. (We might note that the marvel of the American system is the citizen's right to challenge external authority when it seems wrong to him—and this right is guaranteed to him in writing by his government!)
Church government, which generally considers itself superior to human government, would do well to let its lowly members challenge a few of their leaders and some of the church's ancient creeds and dogmas that have been clearly outgrown. The humanly ungovernable Child within us will be up and out one day very soon as linear time goes, and, when it is, every organization will be reorganized.
I doubt if words that tell of the Child within us could be published in the Soviet Union where external authority is supreme. I know these words I write could not be published by the individual in the Roman Catholic Church or the Christian Science Church without that individual being taken to task. But the Child within us is already free of human government, living and moving and having Its being in our heart of Hearts!
Now, the knowledge of the Child doesn't mean that we—as the rediscovered Child—don't vote or support our church and country. We don't withdraw from anything. It means more nearly that we are viewed as a peculiar people, not quite so governable by external authorities and their institutions. We will be taken to task by everyone who hears and fears our Self-discovery. The prophets saw this coming—as did Jesus. “Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely” (for the Child's sake).
The point being made here? That church governments anywhere in the world, including the United States, are just as dictatorial and demeaning, when they feel threatened, as any secular government has ever been.  The recognition of the Child within us is coming soon to challenge all exclusively objective modes of mind. The egocentric turf protectors, the priests, rabbis and ministers clutching their numbers, will bellow and shout and bring their houses down on their heads because the people they lead like sheep will perceive that the Child is indeed alive within themselves as it is in us. And exactly as the prophets said, “...great will be (the Child's) reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the prophets before you.”
Bottom line: It is natural for the objective world to try to hold to the status quo and to subdue the subjective idea if it can. Subjectivism has been put down successfully by churchdom many times before. It was a subjective uprising within Judaism that gave birth to Christianity. But what do the rabbis teach about the subjective idea today? That it is dangerous! Judaism warns the rabbis who would like to explore the deep things of God that subjectivism can safely be studied only with a proven prophet. And what do the organized Christian sects teach of subjectivism? See for yourself. Virtually nothing.

Now that the physical sciences are in the process of rediscovering metaphysics once more, in quantum mechanics, it remains to be seen what they will do with it; but if the past forty years are an indication, there seems little reason to doubt the prophets' prediction. Perhaps it is poetic justice that it may very well be the concretized egotism of mankind, led by its organizational leaders—ministers, rabbis, mullahs and priests who know nothing of subjectivism whatever—who, with their frightened, uneducated flocks, will appear to do the “devil's” final work of tearing down the houses whose foundations lie on objective sand.
Quantum information is arriving now. The world is being flooded with information that is certain to induce new modes of thought, if mankind is to survive the upheaval. The old things will certainly pass away. There will be a new heaven and earth to be seen with the eyes because it is here already, unseen.
The Child within us survives. Those of us who have found that Child will be non-judgmental onlookers, doing what we have been given to do to help our new world. And we will do it against great odds—successfully.
