As a preface, you know this applies equally to both men and women; all of these threads do....

You already have all you need to bring home the trophy but for those looking to kick the extra point after scoring as an exultation of the win, the following two meditations are suggested (from the 2nd Testament, sometimes called the New Testament):

1) The wedding at Cana. You are there sitting at the table. Mary, speaking to her Son, notes that the wedding reception has run out of wine to which He replies along the lines of why are you telling me this because my time has not yet come. She doesn't respond but instead calls the waiter and tells him to do whatever He says. Her Son proceeds to turn water into wine. After a while they get up and leave, He beginning His ministry (His time had now come!).

Meditate first on the mother's relationship with her Son, like she 'knows' that He will answer/respond to her implied request and He in turn does not refuse his mother. To meditate, find a quiet, private place without chance of interruption or disturbance. Get relaxed and comfortable. Say a spontaneous prayer for assistance. Read the passage. Dwell mentally on that relationship for 10-20 minutes. If your mind wanders, bring it back. If related thoughts arise, follow them. Say a spontaneous prayer of thanksgiving.

The next time for meditation do it again...and again...until you 'feel' there is nothing left. Then see if anything else appeals to you in this passage, and if so, go with it. For example, "do whatever He tells you" just might be also speaking to us ... for example.

2) The Prodigal Son. Do as above only the focus here is on the father. Realize that the son, given the time and audience when told, greatly-hugely insulted his father, his family, his friends, relatives, town and indeed the entire Jewish people in leaving them, rejecting everything about them, living without morals, ethics, even with pigs which represented the dirtiest of all animals. Ponder the father, how he waited, hoped, patiently looked each day and finally how he reacted to this son when seeing him approaching from afar in complete and utter filth.

Ponder the ring which was in those days the sign of family, heredity, etc. That wayward son who had repented had reacquired INHERITance of the family name while the son who remained received 'all' the father had to give. FOCUS ON THE FATHER.

When you feel there is nothing left you can do as above and follow other things like the attitude of the father toward the other son, ie. prostrating himself on the ground and begging him to not feel hurt, or anything else. KNOW THAT THE FATHER REPRESENTS OUR ALL POWERFUL CREATOR! Can you handle that? Our God Himself the definition of Meekness and Humility? The Eternal One who created space and time and us, unimaginably so full of LOVE for us that he pleads to us to TRUST Him? Meditate and meditate.

Somewhere amongst these two, sometime, somehow, you will likely receive a gift of Contemplation. When it occurs, don't question it, don't think about it, don't try and make it last, don't anything other than just let go of everything and give yourself to it, in totem, COMPLETELY, just looking, feeling, enjoying the gift and when it's over, then give a deep THANK YOU!

OK, it's all yours, guys and gals, to not only inherit the earth but to fly like an eagle, no, to soar like you just can't imagine. Once received and repeated, you've acquired the promised protection alluded to in one line of Part B in an earlier thread. There's a word for it that doesn't come to mind but it's a misinterpretation of this, the real meaning. The word is rapture.

There comes a time when the words 'extraordinary' and 'discrimination' and 'discernment' and the like come to mind; they need to be addressed, as well as the words 'coverup' and 'credibility' and 'conspiracy' and 'reputation' and 'hierarchy' or chain of command. These play a great role in disseminating or hiding truth, agendas, decision-making and the like. There's also the issue of an open mind: some individuals will instinctively dismiss anything that:

1- has the words Jew or Jewish or Hebrew in it
2- has the name Jesus or Christ in it
3- if video, is delivered by someone wearing a collar or dressed in a particular way
4- has the words 'Born Again' or Evangelical or Catholic or ANY 'institutional' identifier
5- sounds scientific or 'not' scientific
6- has the name Mary or phrase "Virgin Mary" or "Blessed Mary"

We begin with this:

"...
Little ones, do not look for answers, look to be the mouthpiece of God the Father.  Be the person who shall speak the Truth among those who may challenge you, direct questions to you, or even confront you.  Be the mouthpiece and set the example of Truth.  What you hear from them is that to which you must respond from God's Heart as His mouthpiece.  You have been blessed from Heaven above to be able to do this.  There are many people who are confused, including many priests.  Your confidence in God, your leadership and your ambience will speak to them as you guide them.

You have many petitions in your hearts, and I take them.  I have many petitions in my Heart, too.  I ask you to take them and join me in prayer.

I love you.  I am proud, as a humble servant of God, to walk in the Way that my Son allows as He has formed the Path.  I bless you; and I take all your petitions to my most Immaculate Heart where they are safe, and I shall present them all to the most adorable One, my Child, your Savior.

Peace.
..."

(To be continued)

Inspirations are all around us, if we look. Do you know the rock opera 'Tommy' by The Who? The last place anyone would look for an inspirational meditation ... but ...

"Listening to you,
I get the music.
Gazing at you,
I get the heat.
Following you,
I climb the mountains.
I get excitement at your feet.

Right behind you,
I see the millions.
On you,
I see the glory.
From you,
I get opinions.
From you,
I get the story."

See what I mean?

 Marshall Masters' web site www.yowusa.com is a chain-linked fence filled with accumulated information and thought from well over a decade. I just 'found' and read an article he wrote back in 2012 on this very same subject, meek shall inherit, and I MUST ask you to read it because once again, he's condensed very much into a little space. Not all will agree with all that's said but ... so what!?!

Here it is:

http://yowusa.com/humanity/2012/humanity-2012-02a/1.shtml

and here I am, slightly outside of the two profiles and still pointing to the words of someone else:

Song: Going Home
Artist: Leonard Cohen
Album: Old Ideas

Refrain:

Going home without my sorrow
Going home sometime tomorrow
Going home to where it's better
Than before

Going home without my burden
Going home behind the curtain
Going home without the costume
That I wore

Out of that particular context, the most sorrowful sight in this world is the human who talks the love but lives the hate, albeit in very subtle ways, regardless of self-proclaimed spiritual posture. Survival, life, comes down to what we have spoken of, the honest and sincere practice of living love in a childlike (as previously discussed) way .. something to meditate on.
