CHEERFULNESS

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

Cheerfulness

Is never allowed to be dormant

Among children

In whose currents it

Freely flows

When it erupts

Like sunbursts

That all other cosmic bodies

Gladly accept

As life blessings.

 

[Writ. 09 Oct. 1987, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

 

REFLECTION

A person who is truly in the Path of Light, in thought and in practice, will naturally turn out to be cheerful. If a person refuses, consciously or unconsciously, to release dense energy blockages from within, then higher Light cannot flow down the lower self as much as it should, thus causing a state of ‘grim and determined’ mood.

As a social activist of long standing, I had deep scorn for fellow activist leaders who were ‘grim and determined’. They turned out to be fanatical hardliners, and were defenders of social tenets as stiff dogma. When they spoke before the public, they discoursed in the ‘brimstone and fire’ manner, lacking humor and life.

 

Strive to release dense energies from within you, caused by very long conditions of psychological disorder that you may have possessed for so many lives, so as to effectively let higher Light flow through you. There are meditation tools available to achieve results.

Do not be imposing your presence upon a guru of the Teaching by stubbornly sticking on to your dense states of disordered selves. Being so, you will lack the cheerfulness that is expected of any worker of Light, and will dogmatize the Teaching as well as make a cult out of the founding Master of the group or teachings represented by your guru.

REFLECTIONS ABOUT WORK February 19, 2014

REFLECTIONS ABOUT WORK

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

There can be

no savoring the foods

offered by Terra

without working hard for their generation;

 

no consumption of bounties

in torrential showers

without striving

for their production;

 

no recital of flowery

words about justice

without active contention

for their fruition;

 

no pleasant rest

of mind and body

without processing by

the sweatshops of labour;

 

no blissful state

of realized utopias

without rendering sufferings

from waylaid obstacles.

[Writ. 27 Sept, 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]

 

REFLECTION

The poem was largely my crafting of the virtue of labor in the poetic form. At the time of my writing this piece, I was largely enamored to the labor theory of value, which I hold on to this day.

Any spiritual Aspirant ought to realize the wisdom behind labor as way to reproducing in the self the power of creation of the Prime Creator. Being thus a reproduction of such divine powers, each of us is a co-creator of the Almighty in the lower dimensions of reality.

Being so, we strive to enact co-creation in the realm of practice. We were sent here for a higher purpose, so we maximize our presence in the dense spheres to labor as a sublime expression of the powers of creation. Even our sojourning the Path is a matter of engaging in work—in spiritual work—as we put into practice the principles of higher mysteries.

As we move on in our journey living highly productive lives, so does Divine grace come forth, showering us with blessings. Till finally one becomes Self-realized, a process that is itself brought forth by a combination of our efforts (25%), our guru’s intervention programs (25%), and divine grace (50%).

ON CRAFTING THE FUTURE February 11, 2014

ON CRAFTING THE FUTURE

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

What is

the promising denouement

of aspirations for betterment

by all the Earth’s dispossessed

if not that

the fidelity

to the visions

they’ve conceived

can unfold

in their nonpassive

creation.

 

Yes, the future

has shapes and forms

that can be exquisitely

crafted.

 

[Writ. 27 Sept. 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]

 

REFLECTION

As a youth I was attracted strongly to humanist, Enlightenment ideas about progress and the possibilities of recreating worlds. From the Eastern masters did I learn more recondite thoughts about progress and the continuous growth of the Spirit in daily life, thus ensuring a better future for us all individually and collectively as humans.

Along the mystical Path did I grasp the knowledge that even the Earth itself—endowed as it is with higher intelligence—is capable of uprooting itself from eons of stasis and propelling itself to a higher dimension. That sublime intelligence is Gaia, the divine being that had made Earth as her material vehicle.

What we are today is what we have made of ourselves based on accretions of experiences from diverse embodiments. We can choose the Negative Path, or the laggard’s way of stasis, or the Positive Path of ascension back to the Godhead. The decision about what Path to take is ours to make, our future then expectedly a product about that decision and the compass of our sojourns.

The future, in other words, is not a fixed condition of life that an external intelligence has assigned for us. We are free will beings, free to chart the contours of our “what-can-be” from the momentary context of the “what-is”.

ASPIRATION February 4, 2014

ASPIRATION

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

O! Aspiration!

You majestic road

To where all are brought

To fate’s myriad conclusions,

 

You are beheld

As a plane in Pythagoras’ universe

Contained in Euclid’s space

A foot away to grasp in an instance.

 

Yet how come that you,

In each one’ pathway

Seem millions of miles away,

Far beyond anyone’s reach?

 

O! Aspiration!

Please don’t appear as any

Unconquerable chimera

To willful beings

To the willful.

 

[Writ. 26 May 1988, Proj.8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

REFLECTION

This poetic piece is about building one’s life based on dreams or goals. “A man with a dream cannot be denied,” thundered a former labor leader in the USA who shifted later on to network marketing—he did succeed in the latter though he was denied by potential markets or sponsored distributors hundreds of times before his new business matured.

Having turned into a human development practitioner during my professional career, I did realize the profound wisdom of propelling yourself to achieving higher levels of “self-actualization” (using Maslow’s term) with your chief dream as your empowering propellant.

In the Path of self-realization, it is important to engage in pursuits of “right livelihood” (Buddha’s maxim), this being a 3rd Ray work of perfecting your craft. Such craft or profession will aid you in meeting your needs to be able to fulfill your highest goals of spiritual liberation.

Go ahead and build dreams in your daily life. Set goals, identify the means or strategies to attain those goals, and ensure that they tie up with your very long term goal of self-realization.
