“We spiritually mirror the image of the Source – we do not physically mirror the image of the Source.”

Created in his image?

One of the greatest books handed down to us from over 20 centuries ago clearly states that humankind was created in the image of the Source. Naturally, it has been assumed since the early beginnings of this world religion that humankind is the physical manifestation of the Source; hence, we look like the Source in our physical bodies. If we mirror the Creator’s image – then the Creator has all the physical features that humankind possesses including arms, legs, eyes, and so forth.

A spiritual or physical image? 

However, this appears to be a straightforward and superficial interpretation of those words found in that renowned manuscript. Rather than humankind mirroring the physical image of the Source, when we seek to understand the metaphysical meaning of this statement, it is clear that humankind mirrors the spiritual image of the Source.

Overlooking the  Kingdom 

Since early times, we have accepted the idea that the Source embodies all the physical features that humankind has. The literature and artwork from these earlier times depicted an omnipotent Source with a long flowing beard, overlooking His kingdom, and clutching a long wooden staff. While our ancestors and many of us still accept this physical rendition of our Creator as true…in this modern era, some question this image and others turn their backs upon this idea as just folly.

We challenge an ancient concept

And rightfully so, while we attempt to grasp the concept that one person can be all knowledgeable and all powerful, we also have to attempt to understand that the Omnipotent One is not of our physical or temporal world, instead, somewhere out there. Somewhere out there – not seen or experienced by our physical senses, rather, only in the realm of our spiritual senses.

Spiritual manifestation and not physical manifestation

A spiritual image of humankind to the Source is far removed from a physical image of humankind to the Source. The findings of modern-day scientists help us to arrive at the conclusion that humankind is the spiritual manifestation and not the physical manifestation of the Source. When we consider the creation of the universe, surely, we must be a spiritual image of the Source. Scientists have discovered a vast web of energy which permeates every nook and cranny within the universe. And it appears that each and every one of us is the remnant of this primordial energy which was created at the exact moment that the universe appeared out of nothingness at the hand of an all powerful and all knowledgeable Source.

We are primordial energy

We all are that original energy housed in a physical body, nothing more and nothing less. This being the case, we have a divine and eternal connection to the Source and hence, a connection to all the power that exists within the spiritual realm to manifest what we truly set our minds upon.

Active creators…not passive observers

If there is any doubt that we can manifest our wants and desires in this physical world by our spiritual energy, one only needs to look at the results from recent experiments to understand all possibilities occur at our finger tips. The pioneers of quantum physics have found that we are creators in this universe and not just idle observers. As creative participants, we have control over our results – accordingly, we must take full responsibility for our past, present, and future results.

Every possibility exists at every moment

It is also conjectured that we exist within multiple universes – multiple universes exist so that every possibility exists at the same moment and every thought, every word, and every action that you make can affect the outcome of your life. When we strip away the sinew, the bones, and the tissue, then and only then do we experience the true mirror image of the Source that we possess.

Our true Self is not bone and tissue

The essence of the Source cannot be bound or found in sinew and bone and tissue. Rather, a mirror image of the Source is one which holds love in our hearts, compassion in our words, and courage in our actions.

We are the mirror image of the Source

Humankind is the spiritual manifestation of the Source and not the physical manifestation of the Source. As such, we can live a life that mirrors the spiritual characteristics which we understand the Source’s qualities. We can be loving, we can be forgiving, we can be compassionate, we can be understanding, we can be fearless, and we can be creators. Rejoice that you have been created in the spiritual image of the Source. Accept how your life changes for the better when you mirror the spiritual image of the Source. Strive with your utmost ability to mirror the spiritual image of the Source to enjoy a truly fulfilled life.

“Happiness manifests from within – happiness does not manifest from without.”

Big, new, shiny things can’t fill the void

In our modern-day world, it is common for many to believe that acquiring as many physical objects as possible, big ones, shiny ones, and costly ones will ultimately bring them true and lasting happiness in their life. While they pursue these objects to a near feverish pitch, they never realize that acquiring these objects alone can never fill the void of unhappiness that they suffer from.

Do not depend upon things to manifest long-lasting happiness

Their state of mind and thus, their vibratory state should not depend upon the material goods that they have or have not accumulated to the present moment. In fact, happiness in our present physical form can never be sustained by the acquisition of physical objects. Rather, it is the pursuit of living in the moment in the presence of positive thoughts and positive feelings which can manifest true happiness.

Live in the moment 

Our benevolent Source has given each and every one of us the choice as to how we live in the moment; we can focus upon positive thoughts and positive feelings which manifest a positive vibratory state that ultimately results in true happiness.

We create our own prison walls…that can’t be seen 

Or, we can focus upon negative thoughts and feelings which manifest a negative state that can only create prison walls to keep our unhappiness locked-in and our happiness locked-out. Both states can never exist in the same physical space and at the same temporal moment. And fortunately, happiness is stronger than unhappiness and unhappiness will always be conquered by happiness.

There is a bridge between the visible and invisible worlds 

There exists within us an invisible world and there exists without us a visible world. Faith in the invisible world holds much promise for us as we visualize lofty dreams and magnificent goals, peace and tranquility, happiness and joy. Belief in the outer world holds little promise for us and can manifest as crushed dreams and vanquished goals, unrest and disharmony, sadness and despair.

We control our inner world 

Yet, it is our control over our inner world which creates an outer world of happiness and the division of the two can manifest as one if we use the power of the Source as a bridge between the two.

Where are you building your castle? 

The castles we build on the inside lead to true happiness – the castles we build on the outside do not lead to true happiness. As we envision our spiritual castles, created from hope and faith and gratitude, we begin to view happiness and the manifestation of happiness in its true light. Happiness is the supreme form of freedom. Happiness is the supreme form of lightness.

Happiness is love…love is happiness

Happiness is the supreme form of love. When we begin to understand what happiness brings to our physical life, we surround our Self with happiness, we surround our Self with harmony, we surround our Self with the Source, and we experience what life is like from the Creator’s view of the universe.  As we enjoy happiness, more happiness will be drawn to us since like attracts like.

Happiness manifests from within…not from without

If you do not focus upon happiness, you cannot attain happiness. If you do not act towards happiness you cannot attain happiness. If you do not decide upon happiness, you cannot attain happiness. However, it is an eventuality to manifest happiness from within and it all begins with your thoughts and your feelings. When you focus upon, act towards, and decide to be happy in your life, and it does not depend upon your material possessions, you will become happy.

“Leverage your actions with Positive Expectancy.”

Do the ‘right things’ to achieve success

Most believe that they do everything that they can possible do ‘right’ by thinking, talking, and doing the ‘right’ things. And, no doubt, they are correct in their assumptions that doing the ‘right’ things will manifest what is ‘right’ for them, after all, like vibrations attract like vibrations and unlike vibrations repel unlike vibrations, this is a Natural Law of the universe.

Tap into Positive Expectancy 

However, they also may overlook a valuable resource at their fingertips which can seal the deal in a more fulfilling and more efficient way. This resource, which is innate in all of us, it merely needs to be tapped into to receive and enjoy the full benefit is – Positive Expectancy.

Leverage your present success to achieve future success

In real estate investing, the toughest property to purchase is your first property. Once you have that first property bought and it runs smoothly every month, it is then easier to purchase a second and then a third and fourth and so on and so on. This process is made easier since the wise real estate investor leverages one property to buy the next and then leverages the next to buy the next and so on and so on. They make use of what they have achieved, buying brick and mortar in this case, to reach their next goal with less effort than they required to reach their initial goal.

Learn from your first success

And so it is when you attempt to reach that first goal based upon your knowledge and application of the Natural Laws of the universe. You have the belief and the faith in your ability to achieve your goal with the guidance of the Source, however, you also have the Law of Positive Expectancy on your side.

Don’t worry how to achieve your goal 

The critical part of achieving any goal is to think, say, and do what you know you should do to accomplish your goal. What you know you should do is passed along to us by the Source through each cell in our physical body. The sum total of our cells surrounding our souls are forever receiving and either accepting or rejecting what is needed to be done to achieve our goals.

What is ‘enough?’

Although it is ‘enough’ to think and say and do, you can leverage these by having Positive Expectancy. Compare this idea of utilizing Positive Expectancy for reaching your goals and not using it to the petrol you buy for your automobile: both 91 and 95 octane petrol will start your automobile and carry you along to your final destination, being either for work or for pleasure. While both work to insure that you reach that final destination you have in mind, the 95 octane petrol has more power in it that 91. And so it is with Positive Expectancy, this is the extra power to get you where you want to go faster and more efficiently.

Positive Expectancy is the fuel to achieve success

Thinking, talking, and doing what you need and have to do will attract the same back to you – this is the Law. Still, to add extra power to the means of accomplishing your goal is achieved by Positive Expectancy – this is also the Law.

What is the greatest source of love?

4. Love is prayer

(Osho’s Fourth New Commandment)

We commit self-arson 

The world is aflame with the negative energy that is created by envy, jealously, hatred, and fear. Our thoughts, words, and deeds provide the kindling for us to commit acts of arson upon our minds and our souls, and as we relinquish our minds and souls to a blazing pyre, we suffer spiritually, emotionally, and physically from our acts.

header19This is the scenario we face when we read the newspaper, watch the television, or listen to the news…it is of little wonder that we also face a myriad of diseases created by the ills we commonly share in our modern day life. Yet, it does not have to be the norm…these black clouds of negativity can be the exception if we return to the love of the Source, the one who loves each of us regardless of our gender, intellect, location or age. How?

Our sacred connection to the Source

Prayer is the sacred connection between the Source and yourself. It is a selfish act that flushes the negative out of your life and replaces it with the positive in your life. You are given free will to make the decision to surround yourself with positive energy or to surround yourself with negative energy…both forms of energy cannot coexist at the same time and in the same space. These possibilities present themselves to you, but in the end, it is your choice which one you live your life by.  We must lead our souls and minds down the pathway of love in order to find the love that exists at every turn and bend in our journey of life.

No need to pray on bended knees 

Many believe they need to be upon bended knees in order to initiate and experience the sacred connection between themselves and the Source, this is not the case. It is not about being in a hallowed building that houses the relics from the past or the symbols of piety…it’s the feelings that you hold inside for the Source. Words alone cannot and do not hold the answers to your prayers, you must experience the love within before it can manifest without. Hence, prayer can occur within when walking through a forest, strolling along an urban avenue, or looking into the eyes of your love.

Prayer is love and love is prayer 

Prayer creates the love that purifies, the love that sanctifies, the love that amplifies. Love is all and all is love when manifested by prayer. Prayer manifests the emotion of love that attracts and thrives on love; the thoughts of love that sustains love; and the acts of love that  retains love.

Our prayers are of love, our prayers are from love, our prayers are with love…why are we unable to see the obvious in this life. We see hate and not love. We see greed and not love. Put aside the hate and invite the love, the love that manifests as we pray of joy and purpose in this life.
