The theme of this walk was strength. The meaning of the term strength depends on the context in which the word is found. The context I choose to use is “to support” or “frm up”. Strength is different from power. The meaning of the  word power in the English language also has several meanings depending on context. I prefer to reference the Spanish word power, “to be able”.

For a mystic, the internal spiritual reality for the meaning of strength is to support or to firm up the Divine energy. Strength is needed when the mystic is in a state of “quivering”. When the Divine energy is in a state of quivering, it is not a rod of white light; it is a quivering rod of light. When it is in this state, the mystic uses Divine strength to make the white light a powerful steady rod of Divine energy that is experienced as “absolute certainty.” The mystic is being made able (through Divine energy) to bring his internal state of spiritual reality to a level of being able to call forth from the internal state into the external world those purposes that are in alignment with the Divine field. In order to create in the external world, the Divine energy field brings results into existence through the clear vessel of the mystic.

That the strength and power of Divine energy are being channeled through a mystic verifies the Divine intent of the love field and has nothing to do with the power of the channel itself. A mystic is aware that any manifestations being created out of absolute certainty have nothing to do with the human personality or ego of the person who is a clear vessel.
