Merely being conscious of our freedom of individual choices can be very uplifting and freeing.
Attitudes like those listed above are very simple choices that supports our spiritual process. It’s not just about making our life more pleasant and enjoyable, but it’s also …… about moving out of the compulsive ego that imprisons us in limiting and unhappy fallout.
Our choices determine consequences and shapes our reality.
With FourSquare choices that are Enthusiastic, Intelligent, True and Loving, we form a positive armor and eliminate the pain of mistakes.

“The wiser we become, the more harmonious we become, and the more useful we are to ourselves and to others. Wisdom governs justice and includes Love. Wise people are fundamentally kind people. Wisdom never forgets anything, but never resents anything.”
Eugene Fersen, Pearls of Wisdom, Teachings by Eugene Fersen, Volume I, page 134.
When those of us on our spiritual journey consciously close our day…… we are still seeking Light.
We are still in pursuit of adopting the positive that benefits not only ourselves, but indeed for the benefit of all mankind ….. spiritual commitment that transcends the ordinary ego and worldly, to that which is of true value for spiritual progress.
As earthly night approaches consider adapting these effective evening routines that not only set the tone for our evening rest and rejuvenation, but also for the dawning of the day to come.
Make it your intent to feel good before sleep
Your emotions help determine the process of continuous creation in your reality ….. so an evening practice that helps you feel good, do good and Be good before bed bleeds into the night, the next morning and into your reality.
Set aside some wind down time ….. about 30 minutes before bed.
From Silence enter a few minutes of Meditation as described in Lesson 19 of 27 Lessons in Science of Being to “wipe away the discordant films which obscure expression of the Soul’s higher qualities:”
“Drown your Conscious Self in the crystal Light of your Inner Self, allowing it to dissolve from you the irritating crust of disharmonious memories and experiences….Understand it as the Inexhaustible Spring of its manifestations in you as Life, Mind, Law (Truth) and Love.”
Be a Channel for Healing
We do not have to be fully enlightened beings to be a channel for transmitting Universal Life Energy as in this practice to help heal the world: Giving Healing Energy to the World.
As you project it out to others and the world, the Universal Power flows from one being to another, connecting everyone and everything, and generating an increasingly stronger flow of the healing fire! Yet, remember do not use your own will power, rather the Will of the Eternal will do what is harmonious.
Declarations of Truth
This practice is of prime importance to me as it elevates all of my being, aligning with Truth and Love before drifting off to sleep. I am in a happy place mentally and emotionally, and I sleep very well and am refreshed in the mornings.
While lying in bed taking the Star Position and just before drifting off to sleep make these Declarations of Truth from the spark of Unconditional Love in your Heart as shared by The Teacher, Svetozar:
“Father, Thou art inspiring me on the Spiritual Plane.
Thou art guiding me on the mental plane.
Thou art sustaining and protecting me on the material plane.
I am Thy individualized projection into Thy own Eternal substance.
Indissolubly connected with Thee, manifesting all Thy qualities and Powers.” Thank You.
Avoid excessiveness and techno
Avoid large meals or excessive workouts in the evenings. If your body is still dealing with digesting lots of food or your muscles still experiencing tension, the mind stays active too!
Scrolling the newsfeed or reading messages on our smart devices before sleep keeps our brains alert. Shutting down smart devices, computers and televisions early evening helps eliminate blue light that interferes with the production of melatonin, a sleep hormone.
I have found that if I sit at my computer screen and write into the night that have a difficult time getting my brain to calm down and relax. The thinking mind takes over and just wants to think some more! I have to turn off the computer early evening, then I begin to align with the natural approaching night cycle.
But if you do find your mind racing when in bed there are some things you can do:
1) Focus on your breathing. Placing your right hand on your chest over your heart and the other cupped up consciously receiving Universal Life Energy. Breathe in and exhale slowly. Continue slow breathing as you allow relaxing.
2) Gently acknowledge what you are grateful for.
I avoid evening reviews because I’ve found that thinking about the past can keep me circling in thoughts about how I could have done better. Guilt, regret and self condemnation can subtly creep in primarily because the ego recognizes the Law of Polarity as opposite pairs. Those energies are not helpful for creating your reality, especially before going to sleep.
Whereas, focusing on gratitude lifts our emotions, keeping us in the moment and reconnecting with happiness within that is already there.
3) Try some soothing sounds to drift off to, like gentle nature sounds.
IN the hope You find these practices help You align with your Inner, True Self, PortiaSLB
The subconscious ego can hold us in frustration, lack, and unhappy times, yet a simple decision to rise above it can change everything and our reality can transform.
We are the creators of our reality …. with our attitudes, thoughts and behaviors. Your greatest asset for creating a happy life is yourself ….. your Inner spiritual will and Authentic Self. Remember that the Eternal is always within You, endlessly working for your happiness. You only need to allow it ….. allow all the uplifting Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love to be in your consciousness and life.
And remember that everything …..everything we think, decide, or do returns to us! And this is also what we attract more of.
Here are some simple ways to create happy days …..
Do an attitude check! If you start with an uplifting attitude it can stay with you throughout your day, motivating positive thoughts and behaviors. So consider telling yourself that today is full of happy potential ….. it’s an awesome day! Smile! You are activating the Law of Attraction!
Paint visualizations in your mind of your Happiness ….. what makes you happy and feel it as if it is right at this moment. Know for certain and write it, say it, be in that energy now. This is what you attract and create.
Have an attitude of gratitude. View challenges as opportunities to learn from and improve your well-being. And learn from your mistakes rather than circling in them.
Throughout the day allow yourself to be in the present moment. Accept the moment as it is. See the good in it. That simple decision can change your brain’s neurochemistry to a positive direction. Obsessive worry or constantly thinking the same thoughts, especially of the past, can keep us stuck in that frequency.
Dance ,,,,, exercise, eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep. When you feel good on one level it manifests in other levels ….. so if we eat healthy, exercise and get plenty of rejuvenating sleep it benefits our attitudes and behaviors to feel good and be happy!
Clear the clutter …… a simple environment helps release you from past energies, attitudes and memories, opening paths before you with fresh, uplifting energies.
Make the decision to listen to your Heart and be lead by Love.Live FourSquare – be enthusiastic, wise, accurate and loving in all that you do. It’ll build your self-esteem, confidence and attract more feel good opportunities for successes.
According to sacred numerology, the energies of a number 5 year will mean lots of energy, activities and change for us all. There are strong indications of prosperity for the masses economically, but it may take a while.
Five is the number of humanity …. related to our five fingers and senses. It is symbolized by the pentagram, which is also the shape the human form takes when stretched out, as in the Star Exercise.
This is significant because the Star Exercise is the easiest physical means of contacting Source …. connecting us with All Energy, Intelligence, Law and Love in a balanced condition …. and balance will be essential this year!
1234 5 6789
This is a pivotal year and it could mean a turning point for us all. Five means as an individual you will have to consider 2 different paths since humanity mentally perceives duality ….. the human or the spiritual road.
We can focus on the outer, social and political world, connecting ourselves to the mass subconscious desires and fears …. or …. focus on our inner life, developing our conscious awareness and connection to our Inner, True Self. And our choice will determine the direction of the following years in the 9-year cycle.
The 2 paths
The outer world, the masses, is looking for freedom and social justice this year …. and though it may seem forced upon us, we seek freedom unconsciously.
The true freedom we are all looking for is inner freedom …. freedom from discontent, restlessness, and anger within our individual subconscious and in the collective, mass subconscious.
Though 5 represents change …. it also represents fear of change ….
Change is wanted now by the masses …. fast tracked. There are restless and nervous energies in the air. The fast pace makes it difficult to obtain balance and perspective. And less opportunities to learn from the changes.
There may be struggles for dominance with plenty of demands, but indications of irresponsibility. Laws and rules may be ignored to get what is wanted.
It will require commitment to visions and discipline to follow through patiently step-by-step in order to achieve goals …. because without them things may be unstable or can go in many different directions.
Having attitudes of deliberate flexibility and adaptability will help each of us successfully flow through humanity’s cycles of frustration, rebellion and struggle, then sudden rapid and even unexpected changes.
It’ll require courage and discipline
This new state of being will require courage and discipline …. and it will not be comfortable. Excitement and emotions will be operating during the play of growing pains.
If you’re not with the masses then you may feel like you might as well give up and join them. Everyone will be undergoing conditioning and programming for the new social framework, and individuality is little appreciated.
Balance will be required to be in this world, yet not of it.
For those of us that have spiritual aspirations …. be conscious and aware of your power of free will to choose! Consciousness is pivotal!
You can consciously choose to establish freedom within! Consider continually releasing low level emotions like frustrations, impatience, fear and hate.
Let Love lead you …. and when you do …. when you contact and allow the flow of Universal Life Energy you are allowing love, peace, and well-being …. then you are in the flow of the creative energies of the Universe.
Be willing and allow optimism with loving and hopeful intentions for yourself and others. It will be rewarding!
Look to your Higher Self for guidance. Your Superconsciousness is connected to your spiritual Heart and Love. And this will help you elevate your consciousness from scorn to courage and empowerment.
December 14, 2021 will be the 100 year anniversary of the founding of the Lightbearers. 12/14/2021 = 13. Thirteen has a sacred spiritual significance …. indicating tremendous powers of change and potential regeneration for something of spiritual value in the world!
We will have to choose – the spiritual or human path. It’s an all or nothing type of thing. This year is your opportunity to: Find your inner Courage to fight for Freedom, Strength and Happiness! And the wisdom of Science of Being can help you find your Inner Powers …. your Real Self. Yet, You will have to be willing.
In the hope You have a happy, healthy and successful 2021 year, PortiaSLB
“The more we improve our conscious self, under the direction of our Higher Self, the more we will invade and conquer our subconsciousness. Some day both subconsciousness and Superconsciousness will disappear and only perfect consciousness will be left. This will be the divine or cosmic consciousness. We should just try to develop our consciousness. Become conscious of Truth. To develop consciousness is only to become aware.”
The stage is dank and dark
The players desires rocket unforgiving flare
Forgetting the relevant line,
'Pride goes before a fall.'
They shout, 'I am holier-than-thou!'
While not even knowing
How things are truly going
Concern for self-gain
Sees the world as depriving
Blind to hearts' courage endowing.
Willingness to let go
No longer the victim
A sense of inner power becomes dictum
Championing of causes when allowing.
Many believe that pride is a ‘good’ quality and …
Though pride may seem supportive of us initially, pride blocks our expansion and is damaging. It lacks love and blocks us from freedom, happiness and our True Self. But, we have been programmed and conditioned to falsely identify with pride, feeling obligated to defend our positions, beliefs, and possessions. Yet there are ways to rise above it and regain our peace of mind.
To release pride …
It helps to realize how it works and how it gains a foothold of self-righteousness in us. Pride is a conditioned emotion based in the past ….. most likely when we were young and naive. And we tend to envisage this conditioning of pride into our decisions and choices without being conscious of it!
Pride displays defensiveness which implies fear and doubt that the object of pride is not strong enough to stand on its own merit and is open to question. A very prideful person, religious group or social movement is locked into a position or belief by fear, making it very difficult to advance or admit a mistake!
Focus may be on what is believed to be missing, with energies of disappointment, resentment, even anger and hatred, attracting more of the same energies. Anger, fear and hatred makes the prideful person feel that they are entitled to act-out, protest, become violent and even kill or maim those that don’t agree. And this also makes them vulnerable to counter-attack!
When we love and appreciate ourselves, a social movement or religion, the opinion of others has no power over us. We no longer need to be right. We recognize our self-worth and Inner joy arises because of love and enjoyment.
We acknowledge any intrinsic problems as works in progress. And this invokes attitudes that problems can be worked out satisfactorily with the world.
So how do we let go?
Pride is a label …. nothing real ….. an illusion and tool of the subconscious ego to continue its control. It helps to remember that nothing has any meaning other than what we give to it! And it makes it easy to let go since it was an illusion to begin with.
Peace of mind naturally rises within us, because there is nothing to defend or be angry about. Each time we recognize pride and get ahead of it, it’s easier to release.
Release is a process of surrender …
We can give pride new meaning ….. and that is by viewing it as an opportunity to learn and grow ….. to surrender to Unconditional Love ….. and regain our peace of mind. We can reclaim our freedom from the burden of defensiveness, blame, arrogance, anger, vulnerability, fear and smug self-righteousness.
Attract what we want!
Our emotions are creative energies and with practice we can achieve our goals harmoniously by picturing them lovingly and allowing them, according to Universal Law rather than by our personal will.
We can deliberately create by deliberately choosing uplifting thoughts and emotions like appreciation, gratitude, optimism, compassion and Love. And with these energies we attract through the Law of Attraction and Love the necessary conditions and opportunities for success.
The greatest gift we can give ourselves is recognition and release of harmful attitudes like pridefulness, fear and self-righteousness ….. and surrender to Unconditional Love. This is surrender to Source, Universal Life Energy and allowing our True Self to Be.
In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB
“Every positive quality is the potential victim of this creeping poison [fear], which sows hatred, jealousy, distrust, anger, disease – every wrong and destructive element there is, physical, mental and emotional – in order to bar you from those things that you want and to bring into your life those things that you do no want.”
Eugene Fersen, Lesson 12 in 27 Lessons in Science of Being, page 260.
For more consider:
Recognize, Release and Surrender
One of the easiest ways to recognize pride within our own selves is to observe our thoughts when interacting with others.
As discussed in the pervious entry, we want to get to the bottom of the emotion that causes all the prideful thinking and struggle of defensiveness ….. by recognition, release and surrender.
To begin recognition: Take a deep breathe, relax, go silent and make the Mental Contact with Universal Life Energy first. …..
These are precarious times and precarious times call for a persistent fight to heal the world. I know more than one person that has died from the virus, but this virus circling the world now does not want to kill us. Rather it’s logical that it wants to survive and multiply. And it survives and multiplies when we lay down without a fight, or when we unwittingly pass it on.
The fight for healing
There are many courageous people on the front lines fighting for our freedom, strength and happiness during this challenging time. Not all of us can be or should be on the front lines. Yet, we all have our duties.
Many people are doing what they can, including the Lightbearers I know…. making masks, donating food…. observing social distancing….and lifting the spirits of others. And it seems it is our duty to be in the moment and keep or get ourselves healthy so that we might help others be healthy….our families, our communities…and our world.
Each of us can be a channel for healing in our own ways as we are inspired. You are invited to join the Lightbearers in Giving the Healing Energyto all humanity and the world. Anyone can do it with a sincere intention and surrender to the Great Principle, God. The Great Principle, God does the healing, while You become the Channel. The more that join in, the more healing Universal Life Energy will circle the world, spreading from one being to another according to Universal Law.
It is an expression of compassion… and compassion means we do what is FourSquare at the appropriate time and place… then leave it to Universal Law.
Should we be cautious?… yes, that’s wise. But to be afraid….no, that doesn’t help anyone, instead fear attracts even more fearful energies. And to doubt the existence of the problem is ignoring the facts….ignorance.
And have a sense of humor!
That reminds me …. should we have a sense of humor during these challenging times? Yes… a giggle, a chuckle, a laugh is a form of release and stress relief. And another good thing about it is that it can be contagious, passing from one to another offering uplifting energies.
And in the hope this gives you a giggle….a dear and thoughtful friend with a great sense of humor delivered this beauty to my house – while observing social distancing I might add!

This tickled my funny bone! And I still smile about it. Yes, there is still a big demand for toilet tissue here in the USA because of hoarding, but as I understand it there is also shortages in many other countries too! Hoarding is a fearful and greedy trait….but having a chuckle over it can ease fear’s hold over us.
Have you noticed how people… and governments…. are communicating …and connecting?
If……there is a bright spot that is coming from this experience it is that….all of us…. all of the people…..and all of the countries….have gotten some understanding how we are all connected. That what one does can seriously affect another, that a chain reaction can occur, passing from one to another.
And if we all want to prosper, be healthy and happy then being conscious of our thoughts, attitudes and behaviors is of primary importance. And the core of them, the essence of them being FourSquare: All Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love, with Love being the leader in our intentions, will build to that happiness.
Cooperation between us is a great asset, while protest and complaining retards our improvement. Ignorance and procrastation retards us, while science and Faith takes us steps closer to understanding.
This can be a great opportunity for us to realize our connection not only to each other, but also to the Great All. That we are Strong, Wise, Free and Loving. And when we help our fellow man we are helping not only ourselves, but indeed the world.

“We must always bear in mind that our body is a statue moulded by our soul with the chisel of our thoughts, the Life Force of the Universe supplying both the material and the Energy which the soul needs to perform that work.”

There upon his finger sat a butterfly. Then a sudden Silence came upon him and
He could see the pillows of iridescent colors of its wings that danced in the sunshine.
It was a dance of Light intertwined with rich colors of Harmony.
There were visions of its transmutation from a hungry, short sighted, crawling creature then
Death as a caterpillar, to the freedom and flight of the exquisite being it is now.
In that silence his heart swelled up with appreciation of such a wondrous creature that
He could feel his self-striving to fulfill the universal destiny of all souls to
Dance in the rich colors of Harmony.
Our soul guides us in ways to construct happiness in our life, yet we are not normally conscious of our inner powers that shape the world. While we may feel “fine,” it keeps us stuck in a recycling hellish condition, circling over and over with the same thoughts and habits.
When we awaken to the greater qualities of our soul and unique character we rise to greater heights. And we naturally attract what is needed for our freedom, success and happiness in the earthly plane.
Looking to be conscious of and manifest your soul, lifting yourself out of feeling just “fine?” Consider:

“Mind alone, with its human tool of Will Power is not sufficient to push your Soul’s Individuality into expression…A greater Power, One which pervades all Planes equally and unites them through Its own Force of Attraction, is required.”

We may feel so busy in our home and work life there doesn’t seem enough time to meditate even though it feels like a virtuous thing to do. But if we experience relentless stress, worries or depression then we may consider finding a way out of the uncomfortable.
Yet part of us can still stubbornly resist what can help us discover our inner calm and strength. It’s a paradox that we may unconsciously let dominate us!
Consider this: even though we may believe we don’t have time for meditation, we do what is important to us don’t we?
Within the eye of the storm of our life is calm, and we can rest, recharge and rejuvenate our minds and hearts. We can reconnect with the tenderness in our hearts, even when our hearts have been broken.
Within each of us is the Universe. It’s very expansive Universal Life Energy … God…Om! With a few minutes a day meditation can help you face life’s challenges and appreciate the joys with strength, confidence, and uplifting energies.
And you will discover that you can Trust your Inner guru, your Higher Self. It will guide you to those insights you (your consciousness) are open to. And to those that are helpful and enlightening. You are protected in the Light of your Higher Self.
And there are many information resources available concerning meditation, including this website. The comment box below is available for questions.
How to get started? A simple 5 minute exercise calledRelaxation and Silence. The Universe supports You unconditionally.
