OVER-flow


Are you overflowing with the Spirit yet?

We are living at a time of great spiritual awakening and renewal brought about by the “pouring out” of the Spirit on all people. This is facilitated by the many individuals worldwide who are turning increasingly toward a deeper, inner-rooted spirituality, the practice of which produces a profound spiritual transformation in individuals, be it in the lives of the practitioners themselves or in the lives of people around them who are touched.

Scripture says our lives should be overflowing with the grace, goodness, and blessings of the Spirit of God — the promises richly described in the 23rd Psalm. It is the natural result of living an authentic spiritual life that refreshes and restores the human soul to its pristine divine nature.

My cup overflows. (Psalm 23:5)

Like a tiny kitten snugly cuddled up inside the containment of a cup or bowl, our lives are contained in and by the cup of God’s bountiful, singular Being-ness.  Phot image of kitten inside cup. Our inherent and pre-existing oneness with God assures us of this truth unconditionally. We are limited only by the human beliefs we have consciously or unconsciously accepted and embraced in the course of the human condition and by reason of our human experience of life, our humanhood.

Let your life be filled then with the infinite grace and the perfect good of the Lord. Let yourself overflow freely and endlessly from that cup of infinite Being, in which we live and move and have our being. So, tip your cup through contemplation and meditation. That way, you place yourself in a position whereby you can be filled to overflow.

A life filled with good is one that undoubtedly meets your personal needs sufficiently and comfortably. However, until and unless your life overflows with surplus good, you have nothing from which and with which to share.

Remember now: Only by the overflowing of the God’s Spirit within us, can we detect and tell we are indeed FULL of God and FILLED with His Spirit.

Overflow today and be full-filled.

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of contemporary mysticism. His understanding of the mystical life is rooted in over 30 years of study, practice, unfoldment, realization and experience, in the course of which he has received the gifts of spiritual discernment and transmission. His teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in a student through the process and alchemy of mystical transformation. Marc facilitates the mystical teachings under the style of Contemplative Pathways, enabling others to embark on the spiritual journey by learning the Truth teaching and living its principles. He has been conducting classes and meditation meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area in a classroom, lecture, workshop or group practice setting, for over fifteen years. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism. His approach to the mystical life is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, spiritually transreligious, and definitively unitive and nondualistic. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring and spiritual healing practice. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness now occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work presently focuses on individual and collective spiritual transformation and healing through the practice of contemplation or meditation, as the vehicle for transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. He remains firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination.
