From the Archives: Praise to Raise
|My bounty is a boundless as the sea,|
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
~ William Shakespeare ~
Creator Source does not require praise - this is an ego-mind's rationale - the ego-mind is always threatened by its fear of Creator Source, for it believes itself to be separate and therefore in competition, as well as at risk for punishment. The phrase, "All praise and Glory to Creator Source" is to assist in re-aligning our feeling of Authentic Self with that of Creator Source, from Which we have never been separated to begin with, to achieve the re-realization that we are One with Creator Source. "Praise to Raise" is the idea. When we bless or praise anything, it activates or raises the true creative process that causes an increase - abundance and prosperity.
All sacred texts urge us to surrender unto our Divine Inheritance by accepting the Truth of our own individualized Divinity, and therefore, unlimited access to All. When we give praise and glory, we are giving it to our Self, we are acknowledging our own Divine Manifestation, our own Glory as co-creators with Source, not some separate ego-imagined Deity - ego is misappropriating our Divine gift of imagination in such cases.
When we raise vibration through glorifying and praising, we are lifting ourselves up out of the lower kingdoms into the higher, and "all things will be drawn to us" i.e., we are accepting the directive to have dominion over our own kingdom, our Mind. This raising of vibration feels wonderful, and is the real cause for all healing of mind and then body. Anyone who has ever received applause from an audience while on a stage knows of the ecstatic, invigorating energy that is being transferred from the audience's praise, sent out like waves to wash gratitude and love over you. This ecstatic energy is our natural way of Being, and is glorious in its glory! Praise to Raise is applauding our Creator and everyone, including ourselves, who are an integral and inseparable part of the Universe. It is giving back what is always being freely given; it is staying in open connection with our Divine Source, which is what makes us alive.
Why do you think the Risen are called just that?
