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" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
