Tree of Life – Level 1, Lesson 2: Blessing 1
A blessing is the movement of power, force, energy and life. It may be given in two ways: either by the laying on of hands or by prayer. When giving a blessing, you find out what the person needs. You make a mental image of that need.
If you are with a person, lay your hands on him and you draw the power, force, energy and life down within him filling that form or image. Then the blessing has been accomplished.
When you are blessing someone who is not present with you, you see the particular need of the person and you make a mental image of that need and you fill that need within that person with power, force and energy and then you know that need has been fulfilled. Drawing the power, force and energy within that pattern gives the life to that pattern so it will manifest.
There are many different types of blessings which fulfill the needs of man outwardly or inwardly, such as a blessing of strength. When giving a blessing of strength, you see the person strong, you draw the power, force, energy and life to that person and your thinking of seeing him strong is what determines that blessing because through your thoughts, you set up the pattern which is to be filled. The pattern was you seeing that person strong. You’re seeing the person strong is the making of the pattern. Then you consciously drawing the power, force, energy and life to him is the fulfilling of the pattern which then will manifest.
There are many people in the religious field who make a statement which is well-known, which is “May the Lord bless you.” The reality of this for this to take place when you say “May the Lord bless you,” you see that being done and it is done.
Giving a blessing isn’t some religious jargon; it isn’t just words. It is real; things take place. The real spiritual world is a world of movement, a world of action, real action, real movement. For when Jesus laid his hands on a person and said, “Be thou blessed,” they were really blessed in the highest sense, and he gave unto all of God’s children this function.
For you to give blessings, you must KNOW.
The power of God is seen by seeing this world. This world we live in is real. It came about by God seeing this world and filling that form with power, force, energy and life, and this world came into existence, and His pattern and way of doing things is the way and pattern for man to do things.
If you know God is real, then you can give a real blessing. If God is a mental concept or some nice idea to you, please tear up your shingle and go home for you are doing nobody any good.
Every man should be a servant of God, for either you are serving God, or you are serving you, yourself, and your petty little desires, which in the Bible is called Beelzebub.
A priest is one whose whole life, inwardly and outwardly, is a conscious movement of service to God and his whole life is a giving of blessings to his fellow man bringing him closer to the Creator.
Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree
Discussing things as they’re said to be.
One monk said, now listen, you two,
There’s rumors about, that just can’t be true.
That man descended from our noble race,
Why the very idea is a disgrace.
No monk ever deserted his wife,
Starved her babies and ruined her life,
And you’ve never known a mother monk,
To leave her babies with others to bunk,
Or pass them along from one to another,
‘Til they scarcely know who’s their mother.
And another thing you’ll never see,
Monks build a fence around a coconut tree,
Forbidding all other monks a taste,
Even while coconuts go to waste,
Why if I’d build a fence around this tree
Starvation would force you to steal from me.
Here’s another thing a monk won’t do,
Go out at night and get on a stew,
Use a gun, or a club, or a knife,
To take some other monkey’s life,
Yes, man descended, that we clearly see,
But, my brothers, not from our family tree.
