We Are ALL Part of Universal Energy

Letting Go, BEing in the Flow – The Law of Disattachment

“Always without desire we must be found,
If its deep mystery we would sound;
But if desire always within us be,
Its outer fringe is all that we shall see.”

Lao-Tzu Tao Te Ching (J. Legge, translator) 1891

Ancient martial arts masters taught the Law of Disattachment. When you hold desire, you restrict the flow of energy. It is as if you are trying to force energy to exhibit or appear a certain way. We often use force to create a “desired” outcome, right? To truly BE in the flow of universal energy is to let go of all desire because desire impedes the flow of universal energy. We need to learn to exist simply in a state of BEing that allows universal energy to move in us and through us and back out to the greater universal field. Then all things move in harmony and synchronicity.

Have you ever thought of somebody only to have them call you the next minute? That is a synchronicity. How did it happen. In that moment, you were both in a state of allowing or simply BEing.

Disattachment is a fundamental teaching of Buddha. He recognized that only when we let go of our inner desires and seek outwardly that which is good for all, thereby including that which is also in our own better interests because we individually are part of the greater ALL, then in that state do we truly reflect enlightment – we are all ONE.

When you create an attachment to something mentally and emotionally, it is like creating a string to a thing that is now attached to you and you have to carry it with you until you can cut the string and let it go. Rather, practice being an observer of all things including your own thoughts and emotions – don’t attach to them, just let them come, observe them and let them leave. You have less strings to cut and less baggage to carry.

Strings can also act like tourniquets on your energy field, cutting off the flow of energy in your body. You might have heard of these as stuck emotions. This is often seen in the field of massage therapy. A massage therapist working on a person might release one of these stuck emotions and for no reason the person will start to cry or laugh.

To understand the deep mysteries, we must first start practicing how to release and let go and get in the flow….BEcome ONE with the universe – that includes everybody and everything (animate and inanimate) around you.

Namaste

The Great Universal Design – What is My Purpose?

It is a time of year that naturally draws us to reflection – to look upon the past year, successes, failures – and to plan the upcoming year, 3 years, 5 years and beyond.

Many people live day-to-day.  Actually “live” might not be the right word – “exist” might be a better word.  They just exist day-to-day with little forethought as to what they want their lives to be like.  They exist day-to-day, meeting the challenges and demands of the day, without a plan to propel them or project them into the life of their dreams.  Most people are afraid to dream.  Dreams don’t come true, that is why they are dreams.

If you could dream a dream – what would your life look like?  What would you want your life to be like?  How would you want to live?  What would you want to be doing?  How would your life have an impact on the lives of others?

Let’s dream….shall we?

The biggest question ever asked is “What is my Purpose?” followed by “Why am I here?”

Two very good questions to ask.  Both relate to your dream life.  After all, why exactly are you here?  Is it to eat, work, sleep, play, rush to and fro, get things, attend events, hang out with friends or is it more?…..Much MORE??

The very essence of your Purpose for being here is simply TO BE.  In this state of BEing, you are in a state of allowing – a state of non-competition or non-competitiveness.  In this state of BEing, all things flow smoothly and effortlessly gently as waves creating a ripple effect throughout all of creation because everything is interconnected.  When we try to force something to go a certain way or get something we think we absolutely must have, we set up contraction or restriction to allowing.  We choke it off and cut off the flow.  Allowing and BEing are like the life’s blood of all that is.  Gain, strife, envy, contraction, restriction stop or restrict the flow of universal energy, the allowing, the BEing that flows through all things.

When we live our life on Purpose in a state of Allowing, we allow the flow of univeral life blood to flow through us and reach out to everyone and everything that our lives are meant to touch.  Our lives are not meant to be shallow, barely substantive existences but rather our lives are meant to be exuberant, vigorous, expansive life energies that have a positive, exhilarating effect on the lives of everything around us.

Let’s dream…what is your dream…do you feel your Purpose…can you move into a state of allowing…let your dream become your reality!

MetaTranspiration

I awoke this morning and the air was cool and filled with mist. The fog was so dense the droplets collected on the windows. As the air became more saturated, the rain began to fall. As the rain fell, the mist dissipated only to grow dense again as the sun beat down through the clouds evaporating the water and filling the air once more.

As I watched this happen over and over I was reminded of Gen 3:6 “…there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”

Water and air are often used to equate with spirit. Just as the water cycle flows, so too the same cycle flows with spirit. Spirit moves through the universe through you and back into the universe. It is the same transpiration cycle – literally flowing through.

So often, we think of ourselves as being the physical flesh. But where is the mind? Is it the body? No. It’s separate and apart from the body. I’m often reminded of the little man in the machine. Our body is simply a very complex biophysical machine created to allow the manifestation of experience. Without the physical body, the spirit would have no way of comprehending the experience of existing. There would be no touch, taste, feel, smell or sight. There would be no sensation.

Do not think of yourself as your physical body. Think of yourself as a spiritual body experiencing the physical world through the physical body. Stand outside yourself and observe all things. Be an observer, analyze the experience but do not get drawn into it. Allow spirit to flow through you; engage in the process of MetaTranspiration.

Worldwide Peace Is Coming

You may have been hearing about a great universal shift that is coming.

Some are talking about it as a shift back towards the Divine Feminine, a balancing of universal energy away from the dominant male Yang back to the feminine Yin.

Along with that shift is a long anticipated prospect of worldwide peace.

But peace will not come the way some are envisioning.

There is a great social upheaval occurring globally as man crafts a global social economy. Peace does not come from men imposing will and design of peace upon the rest of mankind. Peace is a state of BEing that comes from within each and everyone of us. When each individual comes to realize Peace from within, then the world truly will be at peace.

This hearkens back to my earlier question of Development or Evolution?

Are we as humans developing into the fullness of spirit potential through the development of sound moral character and total outgoing unconditional love for others or are we evolving? Nature speaks the truth. It teaches development is the way offspring grow and mature to reach a similar identity as the adults from which they sprung. We are growing creative beings created by the Source of all that IS. We are to grow up into the fullness of Source. Just as human parents teach and guide their children to grow up to be responsible adults, our spiritual parent is waiting and watching, teaching and guiding each and every child to grow up to reach the fullness of our spirit potential to be responsible spiritual beings.

If every person in the world would simply make a personal commitment to love unconditionally everything and everyone that exists, peace would suddenly exist.

There are a number of prominent individuals promoting Peace Projects. Two such individuals are Deepak Chopra through his Alliance for a New Humanityand Masaru Emoto through his Emoto Peace Project.

So let me ask the question, “Are YOU at PEACE?” Is Peace a State of BEing that you reside in perpetually? Are you at peace when events occur in your daily life that could trigger upset and emotional discontent? What is your perspective and mindset about events as they occur? Have you developed a state of Conscious Awareness? Do you practice Letting Go?

When you can see events as they occur in your day-to-day life as an observer and not become attached to any emotions or outcome from those events, you are existing in a state of Conscious Awareness.

By not attaching to outcomes, whatever outcome occurs is okay. There is an acceptance that everything that IS has a reason for BEing. There is no emotional negativity attached to the event. Not attaching emotion helps to clear your emotional body; you begin paving the way to BEing in a state of continual Peace.

Peace is a mindset. The mind affects the body’s responses to stress. The body’s response releases chemicals that affect the mind and body. So, here too, we have the mind-body-spirit all working in cohesion.

What emotions elicit a peaceful mindset and state of BEing? Gratitude, joy, love, contentment, happiness are some of these high vibrational emotions that lead to peace. Can you list any others?

By keeping these emotions in the forefront of your thoughts, you create the cellular vibration that matches up with universal vibration. These emotions drive your WILL. As you exist in this higher vibrational state, your body will begin to crave to BE in this higher state continually. You create a state of peace.

Peace will come to the world. It will not come by the craftiness of man, by social engineering or the expunging of anti-peaceful or nonconforming individuals. Peace will finally come when each and every one – every person – embraces unconditional love and chooses to be at peace from within.

 

If you find this blog post of value, please feel free to tell your friends and family about it.

Letting Go

What is letting go? What does it mean to let go? What does letting go have to do with stress anyway?

Letting go is as simple as it sounds, but not as easy as it sounds. If you’re struggling to Let Go, you are hanging on.

Letting go is disconnecting from your thoughts and emotions. Most people relate their thoughts and feelings as to who they are. But you are not your thoughts and emotions. Your thoughts and emotions are expressions of the state of BEing you currently find yourself in. Your State of BEing can be controlled and changed at WILL. Will Power is the greatest Power in the Universe. As you WILL to change your thoughts and emotions and Choose to change your thoughts and emotions, you begin the process of Letting Go.

Holding onto thoughts and emotions creates tension in the body. The tension slowly builds over time creating chronic cellular stress. Tension restricts the flow of universal energy creating energy blockages. Letting Go of stored thoughts and emotions, old baggage, and becoming Present with the Moment, releases tension, eases constriction, creates fluidity in the body and allows energy to begin to flow more freely.

Found! Greatest Treasure on Earth…

“The first wealth is health.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The second wealth is FREEDOM. Without health, sickness prevails leading to misery and discontent. Without freedom, tyranny prevails leading to oppression and suppression of the spirit.

“Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…” (Matt 6:20) Civil Liberties are God-given liberties; they are not given by man and cannot be taken by man. Be wary of any person who claims to be the solution to problems. The only true solutions come from within oneself.

The man who governs himself has no need of a king or ruler over him. Self-governance comes from within. It comes from sound moral character. It comes from knowing what is right and doing it whether someone is there watching or not. We ~ all humans ~ are created in the image of the Creator ~ the ONE who is the Source of ALL. Just as you are to grow up humanly, physically, there is also a growing up spiritually ~ to grow into the fullness from which you were created. It is an inheritance. It is not something that you have received already; but it is something which you will receive and is yours to inherit, unless you choose to forfeit your inheritance.

Enlightenment is the realization that you and everything that exists comes from ONE Source, that your thoughts and actions affect ~ have an impact ~ positive or negative ~ on everything around you. If you despise another person, plant, animal or thing, you actually despise yourself. People who believe that they have to hurt or destroy others to bring into being a state of condition that they think to be true actually deny truth because in the hurt and destruction of others is destruction of self. Enlightenment holds all things as equal and the realization that all needs are provided by Source. Indeed, there is nothing that we truly need because Source has no need inherently.

An awakening and an awareness of truth is growing globally. A spiritual awakening is occurring as more people become aware of and re-connect back to Source. It is Source that will bring unification of mankind. It is Source that will usher in a period of peace and prosperity. It does not come from a man or a man-made government. It comes from within each and every one of us ~ as humans ~ letting go of prejudices and the need to feel in control of something outside of ourselves ~ to not favor one person or belief over another ~ but to accept everyone equally and to employ control of self. ALL humans are created EQUAL. We ALL have flesh and blood. We ALL need air to breathe. Without breath there is no life. We ALL have the same basic needs of food, clothing and shelter. No one of us is any greater than any other.

Enlightenment begins by connecting to Source, letting go of preconceived ideas or things you were taught by others, and being receptive to Truth as Source leads you into knowledge and wisdom that only comes from Source.

True FREEDOM comes from an individual’s ability to govern himself ~ his thoughts, his physical body, and his outward actions towards others. There is nothing ~ no thing ~ that a person can keep in his heart without it being known by Source. To harbor malcontent towards any other person is to harbor malcontent towards Source. Malcontent or ill-feelings towards any other human being is indicative of you not having forgiven. Forgiveness is elemental to healing. There is a universal symphony being played of which we are all a part. When we show outward and inward love and concern for all living things (the plant and animal kingdoms including the human kingdom), the orchestra plays a beautiful symphony. Emotions that do not lead to love and concern create dissonance and disharmony within the orchestra. The very fabric of the universe is affected. These are the vibrations that affect all of creation. Sound health means free from injury, damage, defect or disease. In its very definition, you can see that freedom is truly the second wealth.

Any person that denies the civil liberties that every person is born with, given to them from the very Source that created them, denies Source and is opposed to it. Such a person would claim that no such liberties exist or hold those liberties as negative to their own agenda. Such a person seeks to be viewed as the source of all good things when, in fact, those “good things” only come through the destruction of others. This is NOT GOOD. True Source does not need to destroy to create. In truth, there is such an abundance in creation, that there is no need to take from one to give to another. Have you ever seen an ear of corn with only one kernel? Or a pomegranate with only one seed? Or a pine tree with only one pine cone containing only one seed? Absolutely NOT. The idea that one needs to take from a group others and distribute what was taken to some who currently do not have is antithesis to Source. To those who currently do not have, all they have to do is seek and they will find, knock and the door will open. There is never lack in truth and not in creation. To say that only a certain amount exists limits Source, limits creation. Source is like water, a well spring which forever flows and the more that flows the greater the abundance and fruitfulness

Take time today to think on these things. Take time to Connect to Source. Ask for Understanding. Ask to be shown Truth. Ask to recognize Truth when it is shown to you. Ask for guidance in every aspect of your life. Just as your human parents would never want to see harm come to you, so too, the very Source that created you seeks to finish the work which was begun in you. Lay hold of these treasures and value them above everything else except Source ~ Health, Freedom, Wisdom and Enlightenment.

Tao Te Ching
22

The partial becomes complete; the crooked, straight; the empty,
full; the worn out, new. He whose (desires) are few gets them; he
whose (desires) are many goes astray.

Therefore the sage holds in his embrace the one thing (of
humility), and manifests it to all the world. He is free from self-
display, and therefore he shines; from self-assertion, and therefore
he is distinguished; from self-boasting, and therefore his merit is
acknowledged; from self-complacency, and therefore he acquires
superiority. It is because he is thus free from striving that
therefore no one in the world is able to strive with him.
[emphasis mine]

That saying of the ancients that ‘the partial becomes complete’ was
not vainly spoken:–all real completion is comprehended under it.

I Will BE That I Will TO BE

Many people exist in a state of discontent. They aren’t happy with their job, the things they have, the car they drive, the house they live in, maybe even their spouse.

 

How many of you think that once you attract all the things you “think” you want, you will be happy?

 

How many of you are happy NOW? How many of you are content with your life just the way it is?

 

Do you find yourself wishing you had more than you do? You see someone with something that you’d like to have and wish you had it? When you find yourself in this state, you may actually be experiencing envy. Envy is a negative emotion. Maybe you don’t think you have envy. But when you see someone driving a new car that you’d like to have, and you say, “I wish that were me driving that car right now,” or “I really want to be driving that car right now,” you have envy. Maybe, it is the latest electronic game or a new HD TV and you really want to have it now.

 

Let’s look at the definition of envy to be really clear. Dictionary.com says that Envy is a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.

 

So, you see, if you are not careful, you may actually find yourself being envious.

 

Now, let’s say, you see someone driving a car you would really like to have and instead you say, “That person absolutely deserves to have that car. I’m looking forward to when I will have one too and will be grateful to receive it.”

 

In this instance, you are acknowledging that it is okay for the other person to have something you would like to have. You also acknowledge that you are content and have gratitude for what you will receive, and that you are now ready to receive it.

 

Why bring up this topic anyway? Because this is part of the Letting Go process. When you are in a state of always wanting more, you are not content. You are creating a maelstrom of emotional stress within your body as well. When you can exist in a state of contentment, you will be in a position where you will attract the things you desire. More correctly, you become “attract-ive” to those things.

 

When you have envy, you have feelings of lack. Lack does not exist in the Universe. There is only abundance. When you can Let Go of this “lack” way of thinking and feeling, all potential is within your reach. You become “attract-ive” to all that IS. Because you are not perceiving lack, the full potential of the Universe begins to become visible. You cannot realize the full potential of the Universe in an instant or you would become overwhelmed.

 

Let’s go back to Prayer for a moment. When You Ask for something in FAITH, you do so with a KNOWING that it will come to pass. If you don’t KNOW that it WILL BE, often times that prayer will go unanswered. It goes unanswered because You didn’t bring it into BEING. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Rom 11:1) Evidence is proof. Substance is real and tangible. Quantum physics has shown that when a person thinks of matter, matter – visible atoms – will appear in what is otherwise “dark space.” You can bring into BEING whatever you desire. But remember, things do not make one happy or content. Happiness and contentment are States of BEING. It comes from Within You not from Outside of You. When you are content, everything is possible.

 

“The attitude of the praying mind is one of intense concentration. The feelings which are the motive power of all men, have been wrought up to a state of tension. The nerve-currents are all being carried up to the brain and there converted into thought-power. With each exertion, whether mental or emotional, there is an outgoing current of magnetism. There sets up a stress in the ether [universal energy]. The entire organism is subject to Self-Magnetization. The psychic atmosphere around the praying soul is throbbing with his thought-forces. The aura – the photosphere round each form is bathed in living light, sending forth waves of golden yellow color and scintillating with unimaginable splendor. The finer forces of the super-physical planes have been attracted to you. Your mind is opened to the influx of Divine Help. Receive it. It is yours for the asking.”

A.P. Mukerji, Yoga Lessons for Developing Spiritual Consciousness

Chap 15, p 126

 

“Now understand, once for ever, prayer is willing. It leads to the accomplishment of your aims on the spot…In this sphere Will is the basal power of influence. It draws all your finer forces into a focus towards the thing willed for. The result is that the thing is done…The Great Law operates always and everywhere…By prayer you come into rapport with the spiritually conscious side of yourself. You are a needle pointing to the magnet –- the more faith…you put into the task, the sooner you will adjust your forces, the quicker shall be the response; the more lasting and powerful the reaction. Here, then, you have all the switches and levers of energy and inspiration. Therefore pray ever and believe that your prayer shall ripen to fruition. Build up faith in the unseen and the invisible. The self in you is your guide, philosopher and friend. It is the  Rock of the Ages – the Eternal among the Transient – the Source of All-Power, Wisdom and Activity. Lean on it for it is Strength – Invincible Strength.”

A.P. Mukerji, Yoga Lessons for Developing Spiritual Consciousness

Chap 15, pp 128-129

 

“I have said, you are gods; and all of you are children of the most High (the Eternal, Source, Universe).” (Ps. 82:6)

 

“For in him, we live, and move, and have our being…For we are also his offspring.” (Acts 17:28). That is an incredible statement. You ARE because the Eternal (Source, God, Universe) IS. Without Him nothing would exist. Because He is Omnipresent, He is all and is IN all. Then He must be IN you and YOU IN HIM.

 

“We have assumed the existence of God, of an intelligent, creative Mind-power that is able to cause to be, and…to bring into existence mind-centers to be the expression of its own nature or, in other words, mind-centers through which this Universal Mind expresses itself.”

Hiram Butler, Science and Revelation, pp 85-86

 

The most powerful expression in the Universe is YHVH – I AM THAT I AM or I WILL BE THAT I WILL TO BE. (The literal rendering of this expression is the future tense, rather than the present.)

 

“But when we take the meaning of the word “Yahveh” as “I will be what I will to be,” it brings to us a potentiality, a power, all unknown to the world, even at the present time; for the name carries with it the thought that he who spoke the word and caused the world to form and to produce itself by the potency of that Infinite Mind, did so by the power of his will, and when we as creatures of earth muse much upon the signification of that name, the “I will,” and the second part of it, “to be what I will to be,” or “as I will to be,” we get a realization of that unlimited power, and a certainty that there is no power in the world, nay, in the universe, but the power of the will.

Since it is accepted by the Christian world that man is the offspring of the Almighty, it follows that man, being made in the image of God, has attributes similar to those of his Creator, his Father. When man’s will has been surrendered, yea, rather has been united to the Divine Will, then man and God become one, for the mind of man is nothing; it has no power of action without the will.

Man always does that which he wills to do, although sometimes there are found in the man two wills active at the same time—the will of the flesh, or the will arising from the impulses, desires, and passions, and a will that arises from the conclusions of the reasoning faculties. But whatever will controls the person, that the person is for the time being; for the will decides all that a person is.”

Hiram Butler, Science and Revelation pp 90 – 91

 

Now, You see through a mirror darkly. It is not clear what you will be…or… what you are. You were created in the Image and Likeness of the Eternal. Your FULL POTENTIAL is yet to be realized. (ICor 13:12)

 

Realization of Full Potential

 

What gifts were you created with that will bring benefit to the rest of humanity? We were all created with gifts – “talents.” Some have more “talents” than others. But we have all been given something.

 

If you are not sure what your “talents” are, think back to when you were a child, what were you most naturally drawn to or what was it you really loved to do? Or maybe at this time in your life, you are drawn to doing something, you see a need in the world and you have a desire to contribute.

 

It is expected that we will DO something with that “talent” that will help others. When we do this, the purpose of all that is can reach its full expression; like the gears in a giant machine, if one isn’t working, the machine grinds to a halt. Or like the human body, when something doesn’t work correctly, the rest of the body has to bear the burden and will eventually cease to work. The body is a physical expression of your spirit. The body is a tool that the spirit uses in the “physical” world to express itself, its wishes and desires and creativity.

 

When you do not Respect your body, you are not respecting this tool that was given to you (the spirit) to make manifest what you desire. If you destroy, cause to breakdown, the tool that was given to you to manifest, it cannot manifest. This is why life can seem like a struggle, as if you are trying to force things into being what you want, rather than accepting what they are. Some people walk around in a constant state of anger, bitterness and resentment. They constantly ask, “Why did my life have to be like this?” “Why was I born into a family that…” “If only this could happen, my life would be different.”

 

“The mind which follows the rambling senses makes the Soul as helpless as the boat which the wind leads astray upon the waters.”
Bhagavad-Gita

 

Why? Why should any of those things matter? Does your family – other people outside of you – really make you who you are? Or do YOU make YOU WHO YOU ARE?

 

It really all starts in the mind. When we are small children, what we learn comes from outside of us. As we grow, we reach a point where we should begin asking ourselves – why do I believe what I believe? Do I believe it because someone said I should? Have I proven it to be so for myself? What is the Truth? If you Seek the TRUTH – the Truth will set you FREE.

 

When you are full of negativity, you are full of negative energy. You block the flow of your energy, your vital life force. It is dammed up inside of you. Your mental attitude creates constant emotional stress, triggering a constant cascade of chemical reactions that manifest as physical ailment – a state of being not at ease. This is why it is so CRITICAL that you learn to LET GO of negative emotions; exist in a state of being that is at equilibrium. It also vital that you learn how to release stored stress from your body, so your body can heal itself. When you do this, You are Releasing your energy, your vital life force; you are allowing it to flow. It can flow back out to the Universe and return to you like the ebb and flow of the tide of the ocean. When you remain connected to Source, your Attention is on your greater purpose. When you put your Attention on your Intention, it will become Manifest.

 

Happiness does not come from outside of you. It comes from within you. Happiness is a state of BEing. You are a human BEing. The full expression of who you are can be experienced when you Give of Yourself to Others. The eternal Law of Reciprocity will bring back to you more than what you Give. If you only ever take (seek things to make you happy), the Law of Reciprocity cannot work because there is flow in only one direction. Circulation is eternal. Flow is not stagnant and never goes in just one direction; it flows in a complete circuit, ever being.

 

If there is something you want in your life, practice giving it to others. It can only come back to you in an even greater expression of its fullness. The most common example of this is Love. If you want love, show others love. Most people do not understand what love really is. The world has confused it with many other emotions masquerading as love. Love is the outward expression of peace and joy and acceptance.

 

If you want others to respect you, show others respect. If you want others to listen to you, listen to others. Listening is not just hearing the words, it is coming to an understanding of what the other person is feeling or trying to express through words. If you want to be understood, try to understand others.

 

“Take the trouble to stop and think of the other person’s
feelings, his viewpoints, his desires and needs. Think more
of what the other fellow wants, and how he must feel”
— Maxwell Maltz

 

Finally, life is a journey. It is a journey that begins when you are born. There are seven stages of spiritual development – newborn, infant, child, teen, adult, middle-age and elder; the eighth stage is spirit. The end of the journey is the Return to the form from which you were created. Seek your full potential with your whole heart. Seek Truth. You will not be disappointed in your life’s journey.
