“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.

“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.
