Effortless Devine Dancing- Notes from the last Waiara gathering
Here are a few notes from our last Sunday fellowship gathering
Simple please . . . .
When all our meetings are over and we are humble, that would be the time the Lord Sends us revival. Peter Robertson
The closer one approaches to God the simpler one becomes
St Teresa of Avila
1 CORINTHIANS 2:2 AMP
for I made the decision to know nothing [that is, to forego philosophical or theological discussions regarding inconsequential things and opinions while] among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified [and the meaning of His redemptive, substitutionary death and His resurrection].”
Importance of our Focus upon HIS nature and keep it simple
A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life.
A king cares not for the crown on his head if he already wears one upon his heart
Matthew 11:28-30 | MSG
28“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill–fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly
The art of letting go is allowing time fall down around you and being present.
We think our control keeps us safe, but it actually keeps us bound.
When you come to the place where he is all you have, you will find that he is all you need! He is more than enough. Toby Powers
Psalm 46:10 MSG
Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.””
Contemplation is a sudden gift of awareness, an awakening to the Real within all that is real. A vivid awareness of infinite Being at the roots of our own limited being."
The Monk Manifesto
I commit to finding moments each day for silence and solitude, to make space for another voice to be heard, and to resist a culture of noise and constant stimulation.
I commit to radical acts of hospitality by welcoming the stranger both without and within. I recognize that when I make space inside my heart for the unclaimed parts of myself, I cultivate compassion and the ability to accept those places in others.
I commit to cultivating community by finding kindred spirits along the path, soul friends with whom I can share my deepest longings, and mentors who can offer guidance and wisdom for the journey.
I commit to cultivating awareness of my kinship with creation and a healthy asceticism by discerning my use of energy and things, letting go of what does not help nature to flourish.
I commit to bringing myself fully present to the work I do, whether paid or unpaid, holding a heart of gratitude for the ability to express my gifts in the world in meaningful ways.
I commit to rhythms of rest and renewal through the regular practice of Sabbath and resist a culture of busyness that measures my worth by what I do.
I commit to a lifetime of ongoing conversion and transformation, recognizing that I am always on a journey with both gifts and limitations.
“… have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.
“Better one handful with tranquillity
than two handfuls with toil
and chasing after the wind.”
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.“
2 Timothy 3:1-5 MSG
“Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people.”
2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5 AMP
“But understand this, that in the last days dangerous times [of great stress and trouble] will come [difficult days that will be hard to bear]. For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane, [and they will be] unloving [devoid of natural human affection, calloused and inhumane], irreconcilable, malicious gossips, devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral], brutal, haters of good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of [sensual] pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of [outward] godliness (religion), although they have denied its power [for their conduct nullifies their claim of faith]. Avoid such people and keep far away from them.”
2 PETER 3:14-18 AMP
“So, beloved, since you are looking forward to these things, be diligent and make every effort to be found by Him [at His return] spotless and blameless, in peace [that is, inwardly calm with a sense of spiritual well-being and confidence, having lived a life of obedience to Him]. And consider the patience of our Lord [His delay in judging and avenging wrongs] as salvation [that is, allowing time for more to be saved]; just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given to him [by God], speaking about these things as he does in all of his letters. In which there are some things that are difficult to understand, which the untaught and unstable [who have fallen into error] twist and misinterpret, just as they do the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. Therefore, [let me warn you] beloved, knowing these things beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men [who distort doctrine] and fall from your own steadfastness [of mind, knowledge, truth, and faith], but grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor, majesty, splendor), both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.”
As we go through the door that is in heaven— we have been invited to “come up here”—we must see Him more clearly on His throne. True faith is not a formula. It is the simple recognition of Jesus—who He is and where He sits above all rule, authority, and dominion.
True spiritual maturity could be summed up by how close we are to the Lord and how well we abide in Him. If we abide in Him, we will sit with Him on His throne in the heavenly places. That is the highest seat of authority. From the place of abiding in Him, we can “do all things through Christ” (see Philippians 4:13). Rick Joyner
Wade Taylor True SONSHIP
As a result, I was given a vision concerning true Sonship, which involves coming to the end of our self-life, and the giving of our bodies to become a present day expression of the life and ministry of Jesus.
These “sons” should have become invisible, so the life of Jesus could manifest through them. Instead, they came with the intention of governing the universe for God. This resulted in a lasting reproach on the term “sons of God.”
The past Sonship movement failed, because they sought a position instead of a relationship.
Time to be the donkey that carries his presence into our communities.
No one saw the donkey as Jesus road into Jerusalem
Invisibility is the key and security in Him
