“Your connection to the Source can help your Self and others as well.”

Your connection with the Source tears down boundaries and limitations 

The Source provides each of us with the innate ability and the natural means to live a fully connected life where we our physical health, our material wealth, and our spiritual Self can prosper without limits or boundaries. While our awareness permits us to live a fulfilling connected life, there are those family members and loved ones who may not be aware of the benefits that such a life provides to a committed follower of the Source and the Natural Laws.

Live by example to help those around you

Even though we want to help those around us who are less fortunate in life, rather than preach about the many physical, materially, and spiritual benefits that we can receive from the Source, it is our living by example that will do the most benefit to those around us who are not enjoying physical health, material wealth, or a spiritual Self.

Your being unwell doesn’t help those who are unwell

If a loved one or a relative is sick, you cannot help that sick person by being sick yourself. No matter how unwell you may become in response to another’s sickness, your reaction to another’s illness will never help them escape nor your Self from the negative vibratory state that you both will inhabit at that particular moment. A person, who is sick, is sick by their own thoughts, their own beliefs, and their own actions. Somehow and for some reason they have severed their connection to the Source and they need to regain that connection to regain and maintain good health. Once you truly accept the idea that their sickness cannot get better by your sickness, there are things that can you do to truly help an unwell person.

Illness perpetuates illness

When we look at how most people react to a loved one’s sickness it is little wonder that the sickness continues to thrive and choke the life out from the ill person. Most will feel pity for the person and their thoughts, beliefs, and actions help support the negative vibratory state that surrounds the ill person. I’m not saying that you should be callous and uncaring for an ill person, especially when that person is a loved one, however, there is a great deal of difference between feeling pity for a sick person and felling empathy.

Envision good health to create a positive vibratory state 

Instead of feeling pity, which maintains and sustains negative energy and continued illness, be a role model of good health to help your sick family member or friend to feel better, this act in and of itself will aid in reconnecting an unwell person to the Source. When you are in the presence of the person, envision them enjoying good health, envision them smiling, and enjoying life in a positive vibrational state. When you think and speak of them in their absence, again, only think positive, happy thoughts. In the end, your positive thoughts, beliefs, and actions can only result in the same for the ill person and when you emit positive energy, negative energy cannot exist in the same time and space.

You can escape from your unpleasant present

If a loved one or family member is poor, you cannot help that person out of poverty no matter how poor you become. They are existing within a realm of negative energy and your lack of abundance cannot help their lack of abundance, it can only prolong and sustain the lack of abundance that both of you share. A person, who is poor, is poor by their own thoughts, their own beliefs, and their own actions. Somehow and for some reason they have severed their connection to the Source and they need to regain that connection to escape from their present unpleasant situation and attain a life of abundance which each of us is entitled to from the Source.

Your lack of abundance won’t help others who suffer from a lack of abundance 

Accept that your lack of abundance can never help another’s lack of abundance and rather than wallow in poverty and want, help that person reconnect with the Source which is the only way to escape from lack and a negative vibratory state. How we react to another’s poverty can help them escape or keep them shackled where there are at the unpleasant present.

Don’t offer pity…offer thoughts, feelings, words, and acts of abundance 

Rather than give the poor person money, which is given out of pity and further supports and sustains a negative state, be a role-model of abundance and positive energy which the person can then emulate in their own life. In their presence, do not offer pity…offer abundance instead by your thoughts, your beliefs, and your actions. By witnessing and being surrounded by positive thoughts, beliefs, and actions, an impoverished person’s thoughts, beliefs, and actions can no longer compete with or occupy the same environment either mentally or physically as what is found throughout your positive vibrational state.

Take full responsibility for your present vibratory state 

If a loved one or a family member is spiritually unwell or poor, your accompanying them in an equally unwell or poor spiritual state cannot and will not ever help them escape from this cycle of negative being. Do not take the blame for them and do not see your Self as selfish when you focus upon your spirituality; it is when you focus upon your spiritual growth and the results you achieve which ultimately can be a beacon of possibility for others. After all, they and they alone must take full responsibility for their spiritual illness and poorness and they alone must provide the opportunity to allow their present unpleasant state to manifest a state of spiritual wellness and abundance.

Be a billboard of positive energy to others around you 

While they must move the mountain to gain a spiritual life, you can help them by being a billboard of spirituality for your family and friends. Others will notice as you set your goals based upon the non-physical world rather than the physical world. Others will notice when you measure the accomplishment of your goals based upon cosmic timelessness and not upon human time. Others will notice when you harbor no fear, jealousy, or envy and they will notice when you show love, compassion, and joy for the physical world that you exist within.

Positive energy attracts positive words, actions, feelings, and thoughts

In the end, being connected to the Source can help you enjoy a fulfilling life and it can help others enjoy a fulfilling life as well. There is something very assuring and therefore very appealing about a person who manifests a strong connection with the Source. The positive aura that follows this person as they go about their daily routines does not go unnoticed as others are drawn to the positive vibratory state which envelops such a soul. Being connected to the Source is the best you can do for your Self and for others.

“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.

“Love the process not the product.”

Attaining success is as precise as any mathematical formula 

Achieving one’s desires is made possible by the fact that Natural Laws exist in the universe and they are as precise as any mathematical formula. As well, each and every one is under the influence of these Laws; there are no exclusions due to gender, location, age, or sex. And as a result of these immutable Laws, there are several time-proven techniques that help us to achieve what we set our hearts and souls upon.

Visualization helps us achieve success 

Many use visualization of either their goal’s features or benefits to arrive at what they set their sights upon. As we focus upon features, it is easier to reach goals when we add our five senses to our sessions. Touch, taste, sound, sight, and smell are the jet fuel that accelerates the process and supports us in our journey of physical and spiritual achievements. However, some find that they are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with fully opening-up and using their complete sensory facilities as a focus of their visualization sessions. If you have tried this technique and have come to the conclusion that it is not for you there is another means available to you; focus your attention upon the benefits of achieving your goal for your Self and for your family.

Focus upon enjoying the benefits, not the features of your goal 

There is a shift in your focus as you dwell upon the benefits and not the features of the goal. Hence, rather than focusing upon that genuine calf leather seats and unique paint job of your new sports car, you focus upon the pride of ownership or your reduced carbon footprint by owning such a unique automobile. Also, a better job provides more money available to send your child to a prestigious college; more retirement income provides more freedom to travel and see the world; and more education provides a more fulfilling life.

Still haven’t attracted success? 

While these two techniques stand under the scrutiny of time and practice, they also provide a workable framework to achieve our goals, still, there are some who have tried these and have not been successful at reaching their goals. They witness others around them achieving their goals and then they feel frustrated, resentment, pity, envy, and other feelings which eventually lead them to giving-up all together and staying in their unpleasant present for perhaps their entire lifetime.

Awareness helps to achieve what you want in life

They have abandoned their goals and have embraced a negative vibratory state, this is a very unfulfilling way to live life since the Source openly provides the means to achieve what we desire, it is our awareness that helps us to achieve what we want and to identify alternate roads to the journey’s end.

Focus upon the process and not the product

There is yet another alternative to achieving your goals and that is to focus upon the process and not the features or benefits of the product. What I mean is that rather than focus upon a new job, or more income, or more goods – which focus upon the product or your end goal, focus upon the process of making those daily steps to your goal and not the end goal itself. For example, you are aware that your company is closing and you will need to find a new job. However, you never earned that college degree or your skills need to be updated since you’ve worked at the same job and at the same company for years.

Be proactive in life  

Rather than waiting for the inevitable and feeling fear and anxiety as most would in this position, be proactive and immediately find a school or program that will get you to the next level to be employable. When you have found that ideal course or degree, then focus upon the here and now and enjoy each moment. Enjoy the positive energy in the classroom with your classmates; enjoy the test of learning new skills; enjoy the grade that you earn from your mid-term test.

Live each moment of the journey and not just for the finish line

With this technique, you set the goal and do not revisit it every day or every hour. You enjoy each moment as it is and there is no pressure upon hitting that end goal since it is not your immediate focus.

What you want and what you achieve can manifest a negative state 

It appears to me that the problems start when you set the goal and then things aren’t progressing as you want and you notice there is a big gap between what you want and where you are. Then the negative feelings set in and this can only result in being in a negative vibratory state which can never bring you closer to your end goal no matter how hard you try to visualize the end product or the many benefits that accompany your greatest want.

Focus upon features or benefits?

Focusing upon features works for some, focusing upon benefits works for others, however, there are some who cannot achieve their goals with either of these proven techniques. For whatever reason, they are unable to effectively use these techniques and rather than give-up and face an unfulfilled life, there is a viable alternative to help you achieve your goals.

Focus upon each moment of the process and not the joy of the product

Focus upon the process and not the product; focus upon each joyous moment as you progress to your goal. Focus upon the little victories as you take the next step in your journey. And as your focus remains upon the process and not the end product, in time you will overcome and succeed where you once believed that there was no hope to attain the lofty heights you had imagined.

“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.

“Healthy thoughts manifest a healthy body; unhealthy thoughts manifest an unhealthy body.”

nss2erzqwgw-freestocks-org (1)Damocles’ sword hangs over our modern world

Medical knowledge and practices in our modern-day era far exceed what our medical knowledge and practices were in yesterday’s world. Yet, in spite of these vast differences, it is safe to say that we are witnessing a greater number of illnesses and a wider range of sicknesses than ever before throughout our history. We truly have Damocles’ sword hanging over our collective heads.

Our thoughts manifest consequences upon our mental and physical well-being

Daily, we see the consequences of our thoughts and our practices upon our health and physical bodies: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and hypertension are just a few of the most serious threats to shorten our earthly lives as well as fill them with pain and suffering.

Prescription drugs…are they the pathway to achieving good health?  

In 2015, it is estimated that over 4.8 billion prescriptions were filled in America alone. While the focus of our present healthcare system is upon medicinal healing, we appear to ignore our focus upon spiritual healing. Yet, there are two important tenants of the quantum universe which can lead to enjoying good health:

  • all objects, big and small, are connected within a field of energy, and hence, we all are energy which vibrates at various frequencies
  • we are creators, not observers in the universe and as such, our focus helps to manifest that which we set our attention upon

We are vibrational energy…how can our ills be cured?

Since we are all Vibrational Energy which is interconnected and we are creators in the quantum universe, our spirituality is inseparable from our physiology and our physiology is inseparable from our spirituality. However, we spend vast amounts of money in an attempt to cure our physiological Self and chose to ignore the vibrational causes within our spiritual Self which manifest a wide array of illnesses.

Seek vibrational ills and cures

As we run to fill a prescription for this and another prescription for that, we appear to be unaware that our physicality is the manifestation of our spirituality. Since the universe responds to our emotions, it is imperative that we look for vibrational causes and not medicinal cures.

Negativity and disharmony leads to blocked energy pathways which manifest poor health 

Negative thoughts and feelings block the free flow of energy which manifests an unhealthy body while positive thoughts and feelings allow the free flow of energy which manifests a healthy body. However, it is not just negative thoughts and feelings which attract illnesses to us; it is our feelings of isolation. Being disconnected from others, albeit, beasts or beings, results in disharmony of the Self. This disharmony then manifests as a wide range of illnesses within our lives.

Be responsible for your own ills and cures 

While we are responsible to our Self for our own health and well-being, most are unaware of the responsibility given to us by a benevolent Creator.

Spiritual awareness is a natural pathway to good health

Awareness of your spiritual Self can bring changes to your life and provide an escape from your present unpleasant situation to a healthy future. In the end, our focus and our thoughts reveal a new world to each of us; this is a cardinal rule of quantum physics.

“We are the integral pieces of a miraculous universal jigsaw puzzle, assembled by the Source and sustained by the Natural Laws.”

moonEverything created out of nothing

In a moment, the Source created the most miraculous jigsaw puzzle known to humankind along with the glue to hold the miracle together throughout cosmic timelessness. In an instant before where matter, energy, and space did not exist; matter, energy, and space were created simultaneously by an intelligent entity outside of this realm of existence. Hence, a good number of today’s scientific community believes with a degree of certainty in the ‘creatio ex nihilio’ from a Creator who is not composed of comprehensible matter or space.

Precise Natural Laws 

Let’s first examine a number of current scientific ideas which illustrate the presence and omnipotence of the Source and then the influence the benevolent Creator has upon the past, present, and future of humankind itself. Running parallel to the creation of the universe is the creation of the Natural Laws which are precise; in fact, they are so precise that there is little range between existence and extinction.

The perfect level of precision  for the universe to manifest

Scientific evidence supports the premise that the universe was created about 13.7 billion years ago and hence, brought about the fundamental laws of physics. At that moment, the universe could have been created or destroyed depending upon the rate of expansion. If the expanding energy was too slow, it would implode back into itself and if it was too fast, the universe would be ripped apart. The Source provided the perfect balance between being too slow and too fast which scientists have estimated at 10 to the power of 120…yes, place a decimal point and 120 zeroes after it to realize the level of precision required to create our universe.

Life exists due to exactness and not variance 

When considering our creation, we should also consider the influence of the relative distance between our Earth and the Sun, the Moon, and the other planets. If the Sun was too far away, we would experience the freezing conditions found on Uranus and if to close we experience the extreme heat found on Mercury and life would not exist. If the Moon was not at the precise distance that it is, it would crash into us. If our atmosphere was not just the correct combination of elements, if the tilt of the Earth altered, if our rotation was slower or faster, if our orbit was longer or shorter; or if our magnetic field differed – we would not exist today.

Albert Einstein’s view on our Creator

When we consider all the ifs it takes to create and sustain life on our terrestrial home, it is of little wonder that Albert Einstein wrote in his book, The World as I See It of the possibility of a supreme intelligence which is far superior to any description we may comprehend of the Creator. The fact that we exist is a miracle in and of itself and we exist with the choice to practice or ignore our spirituality and acknowledge the Creator of our universe, Self, and our lives.

Moses, Osho and the New Ten Commandments

According to the Book of Exodus in the Bible, Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt to escape persecution at the hands of the Pharaoh, Ramses. Having escaped evil, they set up their camp at the base of Mount Sinai. Moses ascended the sacred mountain and returned with two stone tablets that listed the Ten Commandments (Thou shall not murder; Thou shall not steal). These were laws to help guide Moses’ people to lead a ‘good’ life.

Now, let’s move ahead in time where we find the New Ten Commandments penned by  Osho (December. 11, 1931 – January 19, 1990), an Indian mystic, guru, writer, and spiritual teacher. Even all these years after his death, his works are followed by a large number of readers for their wonderful messages. Recently, I read Osho’s words on an ancient theme of how to live a ‘good’ life in modern times. Over the next few posts, I’ll include my ideas about the Ten New Laws of Life.

1. Obey no orders except those within.

(Osho’s First New Commandment)

Our intuition is our most valued gift 

stairwayOur inner self, or our intuition is a direct link to our Creator, and as such the ideas we receive from our inner being must be accepted as the truth, the one and only truth in our present physical manifestation. Since there can be only one truth, and that truth comes from within, we should not listen to what comes from without. It is our inner world, the unseen world of feelings and intuition that manifests a life of joy and plenty. However, many shun the unseen only for the seen as a pathway to happiness and success in life. That’s myopic.

Intuition is irrational, not logical 

Those who only believe what they see, which in turn is something that they can measure, identify, and therefore analyze with scientific accuracy have a difficult time in believing that intuition exists. This is not a reason to disbelieve. However, as Osho (2001) points out, “Intuition cannot be explained scientifically because the very phenomenon is unscientific. The very phenomenon of intuition is irrational.” We cannot see gravity…but it exists for our benefit. We must experience a leap of faith – because it cannot be measured is not a valid reason to think that it does not or cannot exist.

We cannot intellectualize intuition 

Our problem is that we feel intuition and then attempt to intellectualize it, to fill the gap between what we feel and what we cannot see, touch, or smell. Still, the higher can subsume the lower, but the lower cannot subsume the lower, and so it is with intuition…it can subsume intellect but intellect cannot subsume it. When we obey what is without and not within, we cannot reach our full potential in life, it is so because our present is not our future…our future is malleable if we follow what we know is the truth. Ultimately, if we obey what comes from within,  and not what comes from without, we have mastered the first of the new Laws of Life.
