“Gratitude is the absence of resistance; resistance is the absence of gratitude.”

Resistance is a negative vibratory state 

Resistance is a vibrational state of being that manifests from negative feelings such as envy, jealousy, and fury. When one inhabits this unenviable state of being, they lack true connection with the Source and with their Self, in fact, this state is diametrically opposed to the Source and to their Self since we naturally inhabit a positive vibratory state where we think, say, and do good things which then manifest our wants and desires.

Gratitude is a positive vibratory state

Expressing gratitude to the Source every day for your life, no matter how good or how bad you may perceive your life at the present moment, inhibits the flow of resistance that you may face when your life is not as you truly want it to be.

Gratitude is seeing your life through the eyes of the Source

Expressing your gratitude regularly results in experiencing your life through the Source. You cannot become closer to the Source than when you express gratitude, in essence, you are living this physical life seeing things through the eyes of the Source. As such, you are at work and see all the wonderful things about those around you; you are in a traffic jam and see all the wonderful things about your commute; and you are home with your family and see all the wonderful things about your family.

Your awareness creates Source-like experiences in your life 

While others may see aggressive, untrustworthy colleagues, or dangerous and noisy roads, or an irresponsible teenager listening to loud music, you only see the good in those people and things surrounding you in business and social situations. This is truly experiencing a Source-like existence. And with this elevated sense of awareness of the wonderful things that abound in and around your life, your positive vibrational state can only attract more abundance and more happiness as you create a natural barrier which blocks out lack and sorrow from your Self.

Gratitude is not inhabiting a state of want or lack     

While gratitude is a positive thought, word, and action, some may believe to the contrary that gratitude is a state of being in want or lack, in other words, they still have not achieved what they have focused their attention upon and are still striving for that elusive goal. They think that they are still fighting an uphill battle to achieve what they want to achieve. This perception of gratitude is erroneous and this type of thinking can only lead you down a path that is incongruent with your goal. If you believe that gratitude accompanies lack, then you are in a negative vibrational state which can only lead to more lack and this forms a natural barrier to keep you in your unpleasant present – this is a Natural law.

Be sincerely grateful for what you have, where you are, and who you are 

Expressing gratitude simply means that you are truly joyous of what you have in your life at the present moment; this does not mean that you are do not want to achieve more in the future, far from it since we are meant to achieve more and continually expand as the universe itself does. So, if you have an old car and are truly grateful for it, or you live in a small home on the wrong side of town and are truly grateful for it, or if you have a job which just does not provide enough income for the goals you want to achieve but are truly grateful for it anyway, you will surely put all these things behind you since your expression of true gratefulness can only manifest as a positive vibratory state where all that you think, say, and do reflects your inner state of being.

Our inner state creates our vibratory state…cultivate it wisely

Our inner state of being is what manifests our goals and we cannot escape what state we are in even if that state cannot be detected by those around us. Carefully cultivate the state of being you desire since your decisions then manifest as your thoughts, words, and actions which are congruent with that state of being and ultimately your results.

You have complete control of your vibratory state 

Gratitude is the absence of resistance while resistance is the absence of gratitude. Both states cannot coexist within the same cosmic time or within the same physical space. Your feelings and your thoughts, and your feelings and your thoughts alone, determine if the state you inhabit is one of gratitude or one of resistance.

“Your experiences equal your thoughts.”

There are no limits imposed upon us because of our age, gender, or location

Whether young or old, female or male, rich or poor, we all have the means to achieve and receive what we desire from life. Still, there are some who would disagree with the idea that the Source does not limit possibilities for all of our species, rather, they believe that age, gender, and location prejudice their opportunities to reach the level of success they want from this earthly life.

Our minds manifest our desires

There are no earthly prejudices that can stand in the way of one’s success, however, even though we can freely access the means to manifest our desires, each and every experience that we manifest in our life is a result of the thoughts that we hold in our minds. As a result of this fact, there cannot possibly be anyone or anything that creates roadblocks to success except those which are Self-imposed.

Blame no one for your past, present, or future

If you do not enjoy the level of health that you desire in this life, you are fully responsible for the level of health that you are experiencing at this moment, in the past, and in the future. Your vibrational state equals your state of health. Hence, blame cannot be leveled at anyone or anything else; you are the originator of all your thoughts and you thereof, are the one held responsible for the maintenance of good health and prevention of ill health. As such, contracting a disease has everything to do with your thoughts and nothing to do with the illness; surviving a disease has nothing to do with the illness and has everything to do with your thoughts.

Our prophecy becomes our reality

Self-prophecy becomes Self-reality when those who are in an unhealthy state of vibration listen to and accept that which is told to them by professionals. If you are enjoying good health at the moment, then you have occupied a vibrational state that is positive and have attracted good health and have repelled ill health. There are no limitations or prejudices that stand in your way since the positive state that you enjoy supersedes all the other conditions that you can possible face in your life’s journey here at this state of being.

Your vibrational state creates lack or want…it’s your choice

If you are occupying an unpleasant present where all you are able to attract is lack and poverty, you must take full responsibility that your financial experiences are the results of your thoughts. Your thoughts and your thoughts alone create lack and want in the past, the present, and the future; lack can only result from a continuous occupation of a state of the same and there can be no progress away from this state since your experiences can only result from the vibrational state that you occupy.

Change your vibrational state to change your results 

You must change your vibrational state to change your results. If you have experienced abundance in the past, as well as the present, then if you maintain the identical vibrational state, you can only enjoy more of the same in the future.

Defeat is only temporary…accept it as such and not as an end itself

Frequently, we experience delay when we set goals and they do not manifest upon our Self-imposed schedule, however, it is at this time that we must be strong and not accept defeat, it is only temporary. We must have an open heart as well as an open mind to accept the delays that manifest when we plan our big goals. If we feel fear, we can only manifest lack; if we feel gratitude we manifest plenty in our lives. In the end, your experience of abundance rests solely upon your thoughts of abundance – it is the Law.

Disconnect from the Source manifests negative experiences in life

If you feel isolated, alone, and without support of and for your earthly goals, it sounds like you have experienced disconnect from the Source. A lack of belief in the power of the Laws and the Source manifests as negative experiences in life; it can only be so. These negatives include fear, jealousy, envy, sadness, and can only result in earthly experiences that are identical in nature.

Harmony and alignment create the life you deserve to live 

You cannot possibly expect to receive anything different than what vibrational state you occupy and emit to the universe. Your spiritual well-being cannot and will not change unless you change your thoughts from nonspiritual thoughts to spiritual thoughts. If you have experienced deep joy and fulfillment in your life, no doubt, you have experienced complete harmony and alignment with your Self and the Source. This powerful relationship and wonderful connection to and with your spiritual Self and the benevolent One, can only experience more of the same in the future as well as your past and your present. A spiritual Self is a life of joy, happiness, and fulfillment which cannot be equaled by any bright, shiny, and costly item found on a shelf.

Fill your mind daily with thoughts of gratitude, joy, and belief

Our experiences can only manifest from our thoughts; rely upon the Source to guide you to your personal path of achievement and you can reciprocate this rewarding experience when you fill your mind with thoughts of gratitude and belief. Your life will be a full, gratifying experience that results from the thoughts that you hold in your heart.

“The paradigms formed in your past occupy your present to form your future.”

Unrewarding, unfulfilling, and unsatisfying…

Sadly, a large percentage of us will work our entire lives in jobs which are unrewarding, stay in relationships which are unfulfilling, and accumulate objects which are unsatisfying. While most are aware of the quandary that envelops their lives, nonetheless, they have little understanding of what they can do or how they can do it to escape from their unpleasant present. They simply fail to realize that the paradigms which have formed over their lifetime have tremendous influence over what they think, what they say, and what they do.

The past, rightfully or wrongly, can influence your present and future. 

The paradigms that have formed over your past, either rightly or wrongly, determine where you end up in the future. The Source not only created a connective web between each and every object large and small, but, also created a connective web between each and every one of the billions and trillions of cells in our bodies. Hence, each and every cell within your physical body records and saves every occurrence that happens in your life.

Our cells download our daily occurrences, and then influence our thoughts, words, and deeds

So, if you wanted to lose weight in the past and failed, that is recorded. If you wanted to earn more monthly income and failed, that is recorded. If you wanted to find a meaningful relationship with a person and failed, that is recorded. Then when you are faced in the future with wanting to lose weight, make enough money to be financially independent, or find a meaningful relationship, your cells download the information found in your past thoughts, words, and actions in the form a paradigm which is consistent with your past experiences. It is of little wonder that many of us are unable to break away from our unpleasant present to achieve a wonderful future.

How can we break away from our unwanted paradigms? 

The first step to break away from the errant paradigms which control our lives is awareness. We should constantly monitor how the past affects our present thoughts, words, and actions. When attempting to change from our unpleasant present, it is imperative that we realize the past is the past and the present is what changes our future. Our future is malleable if we allow the Source to guide us each and every step of the way in our journey to happiness, health, and wealth.

Focus upon your present goal and not your past failure 

The next step to change old paradigms is to relax and focus your full attention upon your goals. Be aware that your present state cannot be changed when you are in a state of agitation, stress, or turmoil.

Relax…stress cannot and does not help you achieve your goals

Stress or anxiety about your present unpleasant situation blocks the connection between you and the Source. On the other hand, the deep positive feelings of relaxation create a strong and vital connection between you and the Source. When overwhelmed by a negative paradigm, breathe deeply and feel the positive energy that accompanies relaxation. As you deeply inhale and exhale, allow the universe to provide all that you are entitled to receive from our benevolent Source.

Expressing gratitude is greater for goal achievement than feeling anxiety 

Now, express sincere gratitude to the Source no matter what your present unpleasant is, it is the sure way to dismantle old paradigms and create new ones. When you fully accept the present and that you are truly grateful for all that you have and experience at the moment, the universe opens the floodgates of abundance to and for you. You see, with this positive attitude, the negatives are taken away and replaced by contentment which manifests true peace that helps to enrich your life as no physical object can.

Faith and belief can manifest new paradigms in your life

Finally, new paradigms can be formed by the positive feelings which are accompanied by faith and belief. When in this state of mind, you attract positive energy and repel negative energy. As you repel negative energy you overwrite negative paradigms with new positive paradigms.

You can create a new life for yourself

You are fully capable of reprogramming your past and present unsuccessful paradigms into future successful paradigms. It takes awareness, relaxation, gratitude, faith, and belief to connect with the Source to manifest magnificent changes in your life.

“True happiness manifests from negotiation with your Self; true happiness does not manifest from competition with others.”

The new mentality 

The new mentality appears to be one where a person must win at all costs and without any regard for ethics or the wrongdoings to humankind or the environment. The media plays this one up where you are Number 1 when you beat the competition down and stand like a triumphant gladiator over a bloodied opponent in the Roman Coliseum. However, this selfish; ME at all cost attitude, can only produce ephemeral happiness and not true happiness which is sustained over a person’s lifetime.

photo-1462040015891-7c792246b10eAre you living your life by negotiation or competition? 

A person can live their life through negotiation or competition: the former being in a positive state of vibration while the latter in a negative state of vibration. In a competitive mindset, a person always must outdo their colleagues, their neighbors, their own family members. The act of beating another person is tied to and reflected by the winner’s perception of self-worth: they rationalize if I can own bigger, costlier, and rarer objects than you, then I am worth more to my Self and worth more than your Self.

Your self-esteem can be battered or bolstered  

So, when you discover that a friend or colleague has a smaller house, your esteem soars but when you find a friend or colleague with a bigger house your self-esteem takes a dive. And that goes for the model of your car, your watch, your vacations, and any of your earthly possessions. When you base your life and your self-worth upon material goods, you’ll never have the biggest, best, or brightest toy.

Negotiation manifests a higher sense of awareness 

True happiness comes when you are constantly in negotiation with your Self. Negotiation focuses upon the awareness of your thoughts, words, and actions at the very moment. As you monitor your thoughts, words, and actions along the Continuum of Awareness, you are striving to be the best you can and the best for humankind. You negotiate your current state of mind to be in a higher state of awareness.

Set aside your ego to attain your goals 

You set aside your ego to attain your goals with your life’s journey while encapsulating faith, gratitude, compassion, and ethics. You fully understand that your results occur within cosmic timelessness. You place your faith and belief in the Source to align all the circumstances, persons, and objects that are required to achieve your goal and ultimately your happiness.

How to create positive energy

Your thoughts create the flow of positive energy which effortlessly manifests goals for you, hence, no worry, no fear, no envy, no jealousy, no competition.

Material possessions are temporary, your soul is permanent 

In the end, no matter how many material possessions you accumulate in your life, you will not have a minute longer on Earth, you will not be better than anyone else, and you will not have greater happiness. The noted French philosopher Voltaire wrote ‘Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.’ You can instantly achieve the dizzying heights of an eagle and be free of negative thoughts and negative vibrations when you make the decision to be in constant negotiation with your Self and not to be in constant competition with others.

“Thoughts are things; things that are offered freely, directly, and solely to us from the Source.”

thoughtsCosmic timelessness and thoughts

Since that single moment of cosmic timelessness, the Source has created millions upon millions of different and exotic creatures throughout our earthly home. In the process of creating this multitude of life forms, humankind stands out as one given a truly miraculous gift – thought. While we are granted thought from a benevolent Creator, most do not understand or believe in the power and the application of thought to receive what is freely, directly, and solely offered to us by the Source.

How can we receive our sacred gift? 

In order to receive this gift from the Source, you must separate the purity of spiritual thought from the white noise of physical thought. That is to say, the sacred abounds in thoughts of love, faith, gratitude and compassion while the secular abounds in thoughts of jealousy, envy, greed, and fear.

Thoughts and achievement 

The benefit of thought comes freely from the Source. Regardless of our age, location, gender, or education – we all have an equal opportunity to freely receive and openly act upon thought. Science has identified a universal web or net of energy which we can all tap into to achieve our desires, hence, the Creator provides both the thought and the means to achieve the thought. However, it is not idle thought, it is clear and specific thought of what we want which leads us on the path to achieve that which we truly desire.

Don’t let others control your thoughts 

Even though we have the best of intentions to apply our thoughts to achieve our goals, all too often we allow others to stop our thoughts before they even begin to grow. Still, abundance permeates the universe – it is a Law. There is no limit to what we can freely receive from the Source except the limitations we place upon the Law. We simply do not know what heights we can achieve until we attempt to achieve them.

How do we receive thoughts?

Since the Source is in, around, and of us, we directly receive our thoughts from the One. All you need to do is sit quietly and listen to your lungs expelling your warm breath and your heart pumping your pure blood to comprehend this miracle and as your body functions independently of you, you begin to hear the inner music that is playing within your soul.

Does our DNA contain divinity?

Perhaps, the divine arrangement is nestled away in our DNA; what more efficient and effective place to harbor the sacred connection with the universe than within each and every cell of our earthly bodies. The answers to our most sacred thoughts are stored deep within each and every one of us…we only need to accept what is directly sent to us and through us from the benevolent Source.

Our thoughts make us unique

At this point in time, science suggests that humankind is the only creature on earth that has benefited from the thoughts that are provided to us and for us from the Source. Since each of us has the ability to share concepts, ideas, and messages with others of our species, surely, the main purpose of the gift is to endorse and promote the greatness of the Source.

Share our gift with others or live with limitations?

However, although we are given this special and sacred gift, we also have the choice to live a spiritual life and pass along the divine message that exists and permeates universal timelessness or to close our minds and our hearts and live a life bound by earthly limitations.

Accept our most prized possession

We need to accept and express our thoughts with great care since we are the recipients chosen to freely, directly, and solely receive the most prized of possessions throughout the universe. At the end of the day, use your gift wisely to express gratitude to the originator of all thought.

“You are not a drop in the ocean; you are the ocean, hence, you have the power of the ocean to manifest your dreams, your desires, your destiny.”

oceanaJust a drop in the ocean? 

There are those who believe within their very soul that they are merely a singular drop in the ocean of life. And since they are just one of the billions upon billions of nameless souls being carried this way and that by the tides and currents, feel they are inconsequential in the overall scheme of the universe.

A sacred connection exists

Little do they realize that our benevolent Source has created a sacred connection between everything and everyone within this ocean of life. As such, they possess the means to participate in the creation of their dreams, their desires, and their destiny.

The inseparable becomes the separable

The qualities of the entire ocean are bound within each single drop regardless of its size, origin, or location. It must be so since every drop consists of the same elements as the collective, and if the ocean is divine, so must the drops of the ocean be divine. The sacred divinity of the whole knows only connection, not separation. However, when we lack faith and belief in this divinity, the inseparable becomes separable.

Divinity exists within every drop in the ocean 

There is a divine connection that permeates every corner of the universe. It is our feelings and our thoughts that interface with this divinity that manifest our wants and needs. We must acknowledge that it is our feelings and our thoughts and only our feelings and our thoughts of gratitude, faith, belief, and plenty that sets the universal good in motion to create our wants and needs. Since our feelings and our thoughts are congruous with our desires, we receive the good from the Source.

A wedge between our sacred connection

We must also acknowledge that it is our feelings and our thoughts and only our feelings and our thoughts of fear, envy, jealousy, and envy that drive a wedge into this sacred connection. Since our feelings and our thoughts are incongruous with our desires, we cannot receive the good from the Source.

Reality manifests from your sacred connection 

The wise ancients wrote of a sacrosanct connection in life and the numinous power that awaits each one who bears unwavering faith. There is unlimited universal power that resonates throughout this sacred connection and it supports a fulfilled life of accomplishment for each and every person; this is the natural right of humankind. Still, our modern-day world has a misconception of the connection that in the end, was, is, and will be the way to a divine life. The Source would not provide each and every one of us with our own unique dreams, desires, and destiny if these were not accompanied by the means of achievement. Believe unquestionably in the power of the ultimate connection between each drop within the ocean of life to manifest your highest reality.

“What is Plan B?”

whatEarning money on a book he didn’t write

In today’s world, it is unsettling to discover that many are promoting spiritual commercialism as a means to achieve one’s goals in life. Oh, they don’t package and promote it under that moniker, rather, they conceal it under a myriad of claims including working with the Natural Laws to change your life to one of abundance and worldly wealth and fame. Just the other day one guru openly admitted, and proudly sorry to say, that he had earned in excess of $100,000 on a self-help book he didn’t even write. Isn’t there something disturbing about this revelation? Surely, on the visceral level, we understand that their books and their seminars and their DVD’s and their podcasts and their movies have nothing to do with spirituality and enlightenment. Rather, the focus is to funnel money into their bank accounts and not spirituality into our souls.

“So, what is Plan B?”

If we recognize the falsities that abound before us, we must also realize the need to have a plan to find inner peace as well as achieve what we want in life and what the Source rightly provides to and for us. Currently, the collective consciousness focuses upon material wealth, then physical health, and lastly our spiritual Self. If we imagine our life as a three-sided triangle, our lives have been inverted at a great cost of spiritual, emotional, and societal ills for all of humankind. That being said, we need to place our most prized possession, our spirituality as first, our overall health second, and our material wealth last.

Live in the now

Each of us can begin the road to spiritual recovery if we joyfully live in the now,  gratefully accept where we are right now, and genuinely have 100% faith and belief in the Source right now. You see, we must attain our spiritual Self before we can truly gain material wealth that will sustain our lives for the future. If we focus upon bigger homes, shinier cars, and costlier goods at the cost of spirituality, the novelty soon wears off, we become disillusioned and want even bigger and shinier and costlier toys. So to speak, we’re always chasing our tail. Shift your emphasis in life off of material goods and onto spirituality; feel the warmth of the sun, hear the sweet singing of the birds, experience complete peace with your relationship to the Source. Receive inner strength and guidance and the rest will come naturally.

Is it really spirituality?

What is most detrimental to humankind; a doctrine that manipulates the masses for profit and control or spirituality built upon false pretenses in exchange for monetary profits? We must see through this false spirituality and pursue true spirituality to achieve a meaningful, healthy, and prosperous life which goes far beyond expensive or exclusive or exotic goods.

“Spirituality is the key to unlocking life’s treasure chest of riches.”

buddhaheadsWhat are the true riches in life?

The true riches in life cannot be locked away within a high-level security bank vault nor hidden within an old wooden chest and buried deep beneath the glistening sands of a deserted island. Rather, the true riches in life are willingly provided to each and every one of us by a benevolent Source and securely harbored deep within our very souls. Others cannot take our most prized possession unless we allow them to do so and our most sacred gift cannot be accessed until the time when we have developed a level of awareness which allows us to do so.

The Continuum of Awareness

How we view and therefore respond to the experiences in our lives can be placed upon a Continuum of Awareness which runs from the secular quadrant of physicality to the sacred quadrant of meta-physicality. As you inhabit the realm of meta-physicality you are closer to the Source and the closer you are to physicality the farther away you are from the Source. Your position on the Continuum of Awareness dictates your thoughts, your words, your actions, and ultimately your treasures.

Un-Source-like                                                                        Source-like

_______________________________________________________________________

Physicality (looking)                                                 Meta-physicality (seeing)

Looking vs. Seeing

Considering physicality, we look at a door as a wooden or metal object that keeps out the winter cold, protects our possessions, or allows entrance into our home. As we look upon it with our five senses it appears to be what it is and no more than that. Or we look at our job as a means to pay our bills. We can’t wait until payday or the week-end or the next vacation because we feel trapped in an unpleasant situation with no seemingly way out. This is the lowest level of awareness and is viewed as un-Source-like since we are only looking and therefore believing in what our eyes are allowing us to look at before us. There is little faith at this level since the outer world dictates our thoughts, our words, our actions, and our treasures. With this mindset, how can a person possibly be granted the true riches in life that are provided to us by a benevolent Creator?

In contrast, meta-physicality is the highest level of awareness as we see a door which signifies an opening for personal growth, ends a relationship so we can move forward, or provides a path to the future. At this level, the door is not just a wooden or metal structure; instead, it is a conduit to new experiences as the inner eye sees the opportunities on a much deeper and Source-like level of awareness. Or we see our job not as a method to meet our monthly commitments but as a means to benefit humanity, a way to uplift shattered souls, or a path to change the future. No longer are we bound by the outer world as our strength and perception of possibilities are unlimited by our faith and vision as we inhabit the realm of meta-physicality.

How do we raise our level of awareness?

How can we raise our awareness to enter and remain in a Source-like state? Begin the process by seeing your world through the lens of love, gratitude, faith, compassion, and belief. Seeing events and objects in your life with these positives allow you to receive and to retain the riches from the Source. Seeing life on a deeper level of awareness provides you with a better understanding of why things happen and how to react and cope with things that land on our doorstep. Seeing creates a stronger and more peaceful you…as the world around you spins out of control you are not drawn into the malaise since you possess a deeper level of awareness. Seeing helps you to constantly monitor your position on the Continuum of Awareness as well as remain or return to the realm of meta-physicality.

The intangibles of faith and belief and tranquility cannot be achieved or sustained by the restrictions of physicality. It is only through meta-physicality that we accumulate our lasting treasures in life.

The only moment you have is this moment.

9. Die each moment so that you can be new each moment. 

(Osho’s Ninth New Commandment)

There is but one moment

Many look forward to a future of wealth, prestige, and good health; some look to the past when they had wealth, prestige and good health; and the rest never look at the present moment for wealth, prestige, and good health. However, you can never live in a past moment….you can never live in a future moment. All you have is this moment…the one that just began and the one that just ended.

header15A truly wondrous moment

We live in a truly marvelous moment: one that gives us the sweet songs of the birds, the harmonious rush of the mountain streams, and the gentle whir of the four winds. These natural phenomena are what we should be aware of and what we should express gratitude for…they open our souls to the spiritual, the intense wow from the depths of our very existence. The now.

The moment exists for each of us 

However, you must be aware of these things, you must be awake that they exist within you and without you. Each of us has the sacred moment in our soul: we need not be religious, we need not be old or young, male or female. There is no prejudice, there is no exclusion of a single soul based upon their gender, age, location, intellect, health or wealth. The moment is innate within each of us, and it is our responsibility to find that moment, live that moment, be grateful for that moment.

Our role in the moment

Each of us is equal in the eyes of the moment, hence, we are the moment, and if we do not acknowledge the wonder of the moment, it is not complete…the universe is missing a piece of itself because we are the universe. We are unaware of the moment but we cannot separate our soul from the universe any more than our blood can separate itself from our heart;  our breath can separate itself from our lungs; or our thought can separate itself from our minds.

Each moment dies a quick death 

This moment exists only once, and as each moment dies, we must accept the next wondrous moment. We must fully live this moment as our last moment,after all, this all there is in life.  Do not focus upon happiness and joy in the future, it can never be experienced in the future because once it stops being the future, it becomes the past.

Every new moment brings wonder 

As we die this moment, this allows the next to be born. As a newborn child arrives in the physical world, full of awe, wonder, amazement…we must also see, feel, experience our new moment with awe, wonder, and amazement. Our new moment allows us to embrace what is ours; do not keep it hidden…out of our focus, out of our awareness, out of our consciousness.

Gladfully surrender each wondrous moment to live the next, and as the death of this moment occurs, feel grateful that you have the next new moment to feel the wonder of life surging through your heart, lungs, and mind.

What is life?

2. The only God is life itself

(Osho’s Second New Commandment)

Misguided love 

It appears that we in this modern era have turned our love of the Source to the love of things and science. The focus of our affection and adoration has turned from a caring, compassionate entity to cold, inanimate objects of steel and gold. However, it is our new found love that has left us deeply scarred and longing for what we know is the pathway to joy and a meaningful life.

We pass with only our souls  

header16Many believe that they can find true happiness from owning the latest purse, watch, car, or mobile phone. They rush out and attempt to find their lost identity in a particular model of phone or purse, spurred on by a feeling of emptiness and want. That new purchase may temporarily fill their needs, however, it can never fill them long term…all new goods soon become out of date, old, not ‘in’ anymore and then the carousel of buying to feel whole starts again with a new one of this or a new one of that. We can never take any of our physical possessions with us when we pass to the next level of existence.

Science is not the answer 

Then there are others who rationalize that science can fill their needs, answer all of their questions about life, our reason, and our purpose to be here in our present physical manifestation. They reason that only the seen, those objects that can be measured, and quantified are the ‘real’ things in life. The unseen is not real, it is a canon of fiction and fallacy that poets write about, lover’s dream about, singers sing about, and religious people pray about. However, this idea loses it shine when analyzed critically, after all, we cannot see electricity or gravity but we enjoy the benefits from these two great forces of nature each and every day of our lives. Science may help you live more days, but in the end even this miracle no longer can keep you alive.

Nature is crested by a loving Source 

The rest of us have a firm belief that there is a wondrous power in nature, a strong force, a timeless energy that has been present since the universe was formed billions of years ago. That force is life itself, and it comes in all shapes and sizes, in all places and at all times. How can we not marvel at a clear blue mountain stream or a stand of stately sequoia trees…both testaments to the oneness of nature, the miraculous plan from our Creator. And nestled in amongst those beautiful moments of nature, we find humankind; our life a miracle, a planned miracle, a marvelous product created by the Source. The belief in a force other than yourself provides long term joy and meaning to this life and those that follow.

Things and formulas cannot fill the hole that exists within your soul, these things can only temporarily mask the emptiness that exists within, they can never truly satisfy a person for long in this life.

Worship life

We should worship life; it is a miracle in whatever form it takes… an eagle, a flower or a human life. Every minute that your hearts beats or you take a breath of air, it is an amazing miracle and we should express our deepest gratitude to feel joy and purpose in our life. Life is the Source…it was, it is, and it will be.
