“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.

Spiritual Connection

Just between life and death

Timeless void before the sacrosanct journey

It all comes back to me

 

I can say the words

I can hum the songs

Which passed many centuries

 

I can see the sights

I can touch the forms

Things that have gone before

 

I can smell the fragrance

I can taste the sweetness

Objects long turned to dust

 

I can sense the love

I can re-experience the connection

We shared in the past

 

Feeling mellow; a reader recently bought a copy of my poetry book: Ethereal Presence, Volume II

“Thoughts are things; words are your thoughts articulated; and your actions set your thoughts and words in motion.”

We are energy, and our wants and desires must be in accord with our vibrational energy

We are powerful energy forces as well as powerful energy sources that are fully capable of creating what we desire by achieving and maintaining a vibrational state that is in accord with those wants. However, most are not aware of the miraculous potential of the universal energy and our reliance upon the universal Laws that were freely provided to us and for us by a truly benevolent Source.

All things originate from spiritual energy 

All things originate as spiritual energy before they ever become physical reality. While all things are energy, they are uncontrolled energy which permeates every nook and cranny of the universe and we need to harness this unbridled energy to achieve our goals. It is the interface between your life thoughts and your life experience alone which create things in your spiritual world and your physical world.

We are the creators within our spiritual realm 

Others cannot create within your spiritual realm or your physical realm, this is not to say that they may or may not influence you and your thoughts and you may or may not influence their thoughts. Nevertheless, while you may be part of a complex universal equation that manifests all people, things, and situations to produce your goal or someone else’s goal, still, you and you alone are responsible for your results.

We must sustain our wants over universal timelessness 

In the end, it is your powerful and emotional thoughts that are maintained in the present and sustained over cosmic timelessness which result in a positive vibrational state that creates your results. And the reverse is also true: it is your weak and unemotional thoughts which can only result in a negative vibrational state and then you remain in the same state no matter how hard you try to escape since like vibrations attract like and unlike vibrations repel unlike.

Negative vibrations manifest negative results 

As you enter and remain in this negative state in the present, your thoughts then have you reflect upon your past to support your vibrational state; it is then your thoughts that have you look ahead to your future and it is with these past and future thoughts which substantiate and proliferate your past, your present, and your future vibrational state.

Your words create your results 

The words that you use to express your thoughts to your Self and to those around you are the results of the thoughts that you hold within your Self. You can put on a bold front, you can be persuasive, and you can be strong when you articulate your thoughts through your words. However, if you hold any doubts; no matter how insignificant they may seem to you, about your chances of accomplishing your goals, no matter how hard you try to convince your Self and those around you with your words, you will be unable to achieve what you set your thoughts upon. This must be the case since when we express doubt, lack faith, and little belief, we cling to negative expectancy and negative expectancy manifests as a negative vibrational state which can hold or drive our goals away from their fruition. It is crucial to your accomplishing the goals you set that your thoughts and your words are congruent, or they have little opportunity to be realized.

Your actions manifest from your vibratory state 

Your actions are what indicate whether you have been in a positive or negative vibratory state with the thoughts that you hold within your Self and the words that you articulate to your Self and those around you. While most believe that their actions are fully responsible for the achievement of their goals, they errantly make this decision since they are unaware that their actions are the least effective and efficient means to goal achievement.

Success results from your internal guidance system 

Success, however you define it, is not about how hard or how long you work, rather, it is about how and what you do with the inner guidance system provided by the Source. Your actions should and must be about what you do and how you do it due to the vibrational state that you find your Self occupying in the present moment and should not be influenced by the occurrences that occupied the past nor about the possibilities that may occupy the future.

There is no universal judgment 

A positive vibratory state enjoyed fully at the moment sets in motion all the people, things, and situations required by the Universal Laws to manifest your goals. And since there is no universal judgment of what you love or what you fear, the resultant motion from the integration of your thoughts and your words will unconditionally manifest that which is in perfect harmony with your thoughts and your words regardless if the outcome is viewed as good or bad to the holder of those thoughts and words.

Your future manifests from your present thoughts, words, and actions 

Your internal guidance system is initiated by your thoughts, sustained by your words, and accomplished by your actions. Be aware that you are constantly creating your future based upon your thoughts, words, and actions from the past and your thoughts, words and actions from the present.

“Success does not occur from filling a void of want, rather, success occurs from filling a void with spiritual feelings.”

I want more of this and more of that 

When most are asked if they want to have larger savings, bigger homes, and newer vehicles then they presently have, they will surely respond with a resounding Yes! Then when asked how they go about pursuing a larger bank account, a bigger home, and a newer vehicle, they will no doubt say that they constantly think about wanting more money, wanting a bigger home, and wanting a newer vehicle. With this type of thinking it is not such a big surprise that most have not achieved what they want and instead remain the same with little money, small homes, and old cars.

You cannot receive your wants when in a  negative state of vibration 

This is because when they are thinking about wanting more of any material good, in reality they are asking the Source from a position of want which manifests as negative vibrations which can only lead to negative results seeing that like vibrations attract like vibrations and repel unlike vibrations – this is the Law. Hence, there can certainly be no change in these different areas of their lives.

Do not attempt to fill a void with “things”

Many go out and attempt to change their lives by purchasing things that they long for. They buy these goods from a feeling of want and lack and in a sense they need these various material goods to fill a void. The problem is that filling a void with a request from their want something since there is lack of something does little to fill the void.

You are more than just “things”

The approach of wanting something to make the grade, to impress friends and relatives, or to validate your Self worth can only lead to a negative vibrational state which brings along more misery to you since buying goods when you are not able to then leads to fear of paying the bills when the month-end approaches.

Buying “things” can lead to a vicious cycle of wanting more and more

Then you realize there is a poor economy, you fear losing your job, and this invites even more negative vibrations and more of the same month in and month out, year in and year out. When you buy goods to fill a void, you are operating within a vicious cycle since once you have the new home, vehicle, watch, purse or whatever it is that you believe will fill the void in your life, there is always another thing that you must have, hence, you never succeed at filling the void since once it is filled with one new object there is always more that you want.

“Things” are ephemeral 

Even if you can achieve all of your material goals and regardless of how much money you have in the bank, how large your home is, or how exotic your car is, even though you may have these material trappings today, they are merely ephemeral and you will still feel a void in your life which you rationalize can be filled only by the next hot item or costly thing. Since the root of the problem is that disharmony still exists in your life, it cannot be filled by material goods no matter how large, expensive, or exclusive.

Disharmony in your life maintains your problems, not solve them 

I am not saying that you should avoid having material goals such as larger bank accounts, bigger homes, and newer vehicles, you are here to experience a life that the Source offers to you and part of that life includes unlimited spiritual growth and expansion of material goods as well.

How can we escape from a negative vibrational state? 

However, I am saying that your focus of buying material goods to fill a void creates a negative state of vibration that you cannot escape from and unless you approach your life and the accumulation of material goods in another, more satisfying way you will not feel a long lasting fulfilling life of peace and tranquility that each and every one of us deserves and is offered freely and willingly by the Source no matter where we live, where we work, what our education is, or what our gender.

A positive vibrational state opens the doors to success 

It is easy to move from a negative vibrational state to a positive vibrational state, and in the end your spiritual feelings of peace and tranquility can manifest all the material trappings, in any form that is desired, to you and you will not experience a void that must be filled by the latest trendy or costly object.

Change your thoughts, words, and actions 

When you change your thoughts, you change your words, and when you change your words, you change your actions and when you change your actions you change your future. Think of your spirituality: your spiritual feelings must fill the void first and then you can set material goals not from want but from abundance and joy.

Your soul is full of love, compassion, and joy

Fill your soul with feelings, thoughts, words, and actions of love, compassion, and joy to receive more love, compassion, and joy. Once your soul has experienced this higher state of being, a positive connection between you and the Source, this vibrational state opens the floodgates to having material wealth, and it does not matter if we have a bad economy or there is other foreboding news ahead of you.

Maintain a strong connection with the Source

If your connection to the Source is strong, you will not manifest negative things since you are in a positive state and sending positive vibrations out to the universe which can only result in the same being sent back to you.

Receive all while in a positive vibrational state 

Once you have achieved a positive vibrational state with the Source, you will receive all that you desire – and your want is not from a negative void of want, poverty, or lack. Rather, you are receiving from a positive state of abundance, joy, and love which results in a lasting sense of fulfillment and purpose to your life.

“The Source: enigma of our past, our present, and our future.”

Since the dawn of humankind…

Since the dawn of humankind, we have been in great wonder and awe of the Creator of our universe and everything that exists around us. While we have been perplexed by this all pervasive entity, the ancients viewed the Creator in many forms and an equal amount of legends emerge telling us of various capabilities and wondrous events.

The Source is beyond understanding with our five senses  

It is likely that the Source appears to be enigmatic in our collective eyes since we are unable to comprehend an entity that wields so much power and such immense intelligence, is beyond the grasp of our five senses, and does not exist within this time/space continuum as we understand other objects and entities do so.

There is no beginning and there is no end 

The first major hurdle to comprehend and overcome when we are attempting to accept the Source as the cause and effect of creation is the idea that there is no beginning and there is no ending. In the present physical existence humankind finds itself in, we are conditioned that everything has a start and everything has a finish. Our life has a beginning and our life has an ending; relationships begin and relationships end; seasons begin and seasons end; and friendships begin and friendships end.

Our conditioning has failed us 

This is what we expect and accept within this plane of existence and deem it impossible and improbable that something can have no beginning and no ending. However, we view the Source through the jaundiced eyes of our physical realm of existence although this entity does not adhere to our understanding and definition of human space, human volume, or human time.

From nothing came everything 

Another concern of many is that when the moment of creation occurred, in that nano-second in time, all physical and non-physical things were created in the same instant. As a result, all the thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people necessary to achieve our goals were created as well. This must be so since all things including thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people are energy, vibrational energy, and since energy can neither be created nor destroyed it merely takes on a different state than the present state that we see or understand at the present moment.

We are vibrational energy as everything is  

We believe that such things as thought and knowledge were not created at the sacred moment and all the while we also believe that physical bodies end our earthly existence and our future existence as well. Hence, while we have taken on a physical body, nonetheless, we are still part of the Source due to our vibrational energy and must return to the One when our earthy time has expired.  And the same can be said about thoughts, knowledge, experiences, and situations; even though they may have manifested as entities, they are still part of the primordial energy and must remain as such.

The Natural Laws are the grease that sustain and maintain the universe 

Next, there are those who are concerned that the universe does not maintain and sustain itself based upon precise Natural Laws that were created by the Source. There are a myriad of Laws that are concise as any mathematical formula which allow us to send rockets to the moon and satellites to distant stars while we plan and time each step in their journey within a fraction of a second to achieve success. These Laws hold together the universe, keep our planet in the correct orbit, and provide the proper atmosphere for us to live life here on Earth.

We can’t see the Natural Laws but we can see their effects 

Furthermore, we are unable to see gravity or magnetic fields, merely the effects of the Natural Laws, although they exist and can be proven scientifically. For example, when we throw a football or a baseball, we never doubt for a moment that it will eventually fall to earth as gravity takes over and pulls the ball to the ground. And when it comes to seeing the influence of the Natural laws, we do not even see the objects with our eyes as such, rather, we see objects as vibrational forces which we then transform into objects. Still, the continuance of the universe is not and never will be fate or luck or coincidence.

The Source is our benevolent care giver

Now, many are hard pressed to believe that the Source is a benevolent one when they witness such suffering and sadness on this earthly plane of existence. However, we are put through pain and pleasure as a true measure of our Self. We receive pleasure since we can accept it; and we receive pain since we can accept it. We are only given what we can endure, and we endure such trials as a means to grow past a problem we have faced in the past or we face in the present. If we were only given pleasure, would we grow as spiritual beings? If we were given only pain, would we grow as spiritual beings?

Trust the Source…express your gratitude 

We must trust the Source to give us what we need to grow and develop into more spiritual beings, therefore, do not question why you get doses of pain and pleasure. Rather, feel gratitude for the pain and pleasure you receive since these both forge a more spiritual being.

The Source exists within each of us, we are inseparable 

Finally, many are of the opinion that the Source is located in some far-away place and with little compassion for the human race or any other creature that inhabits the universe. However, the Source exists within and around each of us regardless of the place, our gender, age, or social rank. You cannot separate the inseparable, however, you can lose focus and awareness of the sacred connection which then leads us to believe that the Source is anything but benevolent.

Listen to your inner voice to guide you, to protect you

Each of us only has to listen to the voice deep within us to know if we are in harmony or disharmony with the Source. Harmony is about love and compassion and helping others while disharmony is about fear and hate and taking advantage of others. Each of us has that option and hence, free will to make choices. You have the choice to lead a life guided by spirituality or you have a choice to lead a life guided by physicality. Those choices which serve us best are those that put the Source first and then others next.

You have a choice to enjoy endless possibilities 

While the Source continues to be enigmatic in many people’s eyes, there are those who have a deep and solid connection who believe otherwise. The ones who hold the Source first live a life of boundless opportunities and joy while those who hold the physical plane of existence first live a life of fear and frustration never even realizing that they have the same opportunities to feel free and joyful in this physical realm of existence. The choice is yours.

“Life is not a miracle – it is a planned miracle.”

miracle3

Immutable Laws – not chance, luck or fate

The universe and each constituent part of the universe, however large or small, is bound by immutable laws, and as such, are not governed by fate or luck or just mere coincidence. The Source planned all that we experience within our spiritual realm and without our physical world to glorify the omnipresence and benevolence of the One.

Exacting laws, smallest balances, and finest ratios

The very existence of the Cosmos and everything that exists within this vast realm of space hangs in the balance of exacting laws, smallest balances, and finest ratios. Many leading scientists are of the belief that if the universe slows down by a nanosecond, it would implode; if the universe accelerates by a nanosecond, it would tear itself apart; and if the delicate balance of Earth’s atmosphere alters even slightly, most life on our planet as we know it would perish. Hence, when we consider the speed of the planets, the rate of expansion of the universe, the ratio of gases within the Earth’s atmosphere, we must ask ourselves how could each of the millions and millions of elements attain and sustain a perfect state of harmony and exactness within and between all the heavenly bodies if not for divine intervention of the Source?

Supreme Intelligence and The Laws 

The discoveries within new physics, from the likes of Max Planck, David Bohm, and John Wheeler and their ideas of quantum physics, is coming closer than ever to proving scientifically without any doubt that the Source exists and is the creator of the universe and life as we know it. Naturally, this finding will support what the founding legends of many ancient cultures and all formal religions have been espousing for centuries: if there is a beginning, there is a beginner. And intelligence, only supreme intelligence, can fine-tune the laws, the balances, and the ratios which create and sustain our cosmos and ourselves.

Our concepts may be holding us back from realizing the truth

While we are approaching a profound time in human history, there is a still an issue in many minds if the Source is indeed responsible for the planned creation of humankind and the cosmos. It appears that part of the problem is our concept of the Source. Over time immemorial, since the true physical manifestation of the Source is indefinable by our language and unimaginable in our minds, it is the ancient texts, the arts, and the media which are responsible for the anthropomorphism of the Source. Hence, it is of little wonder we are skeptical of our origins as we envision a grey-bearded man sitting on a throne as he benevolently surveys his kingdom.

We are a planned miracle

Enjoy inner peace with the knowledge that we are the product of a planned miracle, and as such, our future achievements in love and life do not rest upon luck or fate or chance.

“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.

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.
