Waiting Deep Within

abracad, · Categories: externally authored, purpose, wise words

By Dr. Stewart Bitkoff

An acorn fell from an oak tree and lay frightened on the meadow floor.  As he lay in this new environment, he remembered his past life, high on the branches. Many of his friends were still there and he longed for the hours of companionship, grand view of things and boasting about their future.

As time wore on, other acorns were lost to squirrels, some failed to mature and many fell to the earth.  These were hidden to each other by the fallen leaves and meadow debris.

Lying on the ground for weeks, our acorn thought all was lost. (more…)

I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish,
I didn't have time to pray. (more…)


The Train

abracad, · Categories: wise words

You're stranded at a deserted train station late at night, it's raining and it's cold. There's a waiting room to shelter, but you want and need to be home.

An old train pulls up. The carriage is filthy and stinking and the wheels make a terrible, almost unbearable, noise. But the train is heading for home.

If you wait, a nice, comfortable, modern homebound train might come along. Or it might not. What do you do? (more…)


What Lies on the Other Side?

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, 'Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.'

Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know.' (more…)


Candles of Love

abracad, · Categories: spirituality, wise words

Candles are often used as a metaphor for love. We each carry a candle (love) within us, but it's no use unless we allow it to shine outwards. Here are three such metaphors I've heard over the years from those much wiser than myself.

I. There's a large room with many people. Each carries a candle, but each shields his/her candle with their hands, keeping its light to themselves. Then these individuals remove their hands and the light from each candle is able to illuminate the entire room. Immediately, everyone benefits from the increased light. (more…)


Abundance Meditation

abracad, · Categories: abundance, self help, wise words

Meditation has long been an integral part of Eastern mysticism with the discipline enjoying growing popularity in the West as more people discover its benefits on both mind and body. Meditation can take a variety of forms but essentially involves withdrawing attention from the physical senses while trying to quieten the chattering noise of consciousness.

There has been much interest of late in the subject of abundance, indeed the self-help shelves are chock full of titles on the topic. The principle of abundance says the universe consists of plentiful supply just waiting to be claimed by those who ask.

This meditation combines the mental and physical benefits of an altered state with a training of the mind to promote abundance-attracting behavior. You can either memorize the words, repeating them internally to yourself, or read them onto a tape (changing "I" to "you") to be listened to at the appropriate time. (more…)


Self-Hypnosis for Psychic Development

abracad, · Categories: psychic development, wise words

This hypnosis begins with the assumption we all, as Spiritual beings temporarily clothed in human flesh, start out as psychic, in varying degrees. Over time this ability diminishes, or rather is conditioned out of us by the pressures of materialistic society.

The aim of the following is to use self-hypnosis to re-awaken our innate psychism by re-programming the subconscious. For a consistent and lasting effect the procedure will need repeating a number of times. (more…)


Wisdom of The Serenity Prayer

abracad, · Categories: spirituality, wise words

In just three lines, Reinhold Niebuhr's Serenity Prayer (as adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous) encapsulates a profound philosophy of life.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
