Once upon a time, in a far far away land called Earth were living beings of divine energy who had forgotten their very nature and who believed that their life was not only conditional but more so, outsourced.
Rounding the corner on October and heading into November with a renewed sense of who we are and what we are accomplishing during this time puts us into a week where we will be best served by relaxing into the call of our own authenticity as new aspects of the Eternal Greatness that we are lands here and shows itself in tangible outward manifestations. We have entered a time where the Divine is now invited to open us up to greater capacity; to broader vistas of empowerment psychologically, physically, and spiritually.
Our real existence is as Spirit, and only in the degree that we perceive our real existence as Spirit, do we drop the false sense of life as material. Then we see that the structural life of man, animal, and plant is but the false sense of existence; that our concern for the so-called necessities of material living has been unnecessary; that although the beauties we behold all hint at God's creation, they are not that spiritual and perfect creation; that the sick, aging, dying appearances are not at all a part of real life.
One of the greatest gifts in this transformational era involves recognizing and accepting your growing Inner Knowing as a new blossom in the garden of consciousness here on earth. During the last thirty years, cosmic energies of various origins have been activating the massive transformation of consciousness that is presently redefining life on Earth.
There have been times when I was angry at God. Angry because things weren't going the way I wanted and no amount of prayer seemed to be able to fix that. I felt like God wasn't listening. Maybe God didn't care. Maybe God was punishing me.
Today is Transcendence Tuesday, a day of discovery! I want each of you to take this Tuesday, this place of new beginning, and become reverent and present with each "thing" you do today. Become full (of your own graces) on this gorgeous October day.For me October brings a familiar quiet, as I enter a space between the worlds and become more introspective. I bet you all do too.
It would be great to report that the Universe is now totally on your side and offering you carte blanche this week. However, this is not the case since October is asking us to find our direct relation to Inner Truth, Autonomy, and Spiritual Power. Like most of you, I will use this week to continue my faithful practice of being a hybrid seedling of Divinity that is actively neutralizing any shadow aspects that are surfacing for healing and resolution.
We are intelligent beings living in an intelligent universe that responds to our mental states, and insofar as we learn to control those mental states, we shall automatically control our environment. This is what is meant by the practical application of the principles of Science of Mind to the problems of everyday living. This is what is meant by demonstration.
Ok, time to role play . . . . imagine for just a few moments that you ARE the one creator . . you know, the mind of God that created all things. . . breathe this feeling in. . . take a mental moment to slip into the shoes of the One that wanted to experience its essence outside of itself. . . So you set about the joy of creating a new reality with the intention that you are going to hang out there, in every imaginable form, for trillions and trillions of years.
This is a week of golden opportunity mixing with sharp challenges. Adventure and change are the theme so be ready to experiment with flow and to depend on your instinctual spiritual Self as a guide when things don't feel quite right. As the cosmos stir and dance wildly over our heads conjuring prominent energy patterns of a higher psychic atmosphere we will need to find the balance point within that anchors the security to face any adventure or challenge.
Energy fluxes are times of tension for the physical body. They push the physical body to greater limits while stretching the spiritual body to awaken. The etheric body (first level of the energy field) has no issues with these changes and thus feels no stress or discomfort in any way. It is the physical body that has the job of handling the extremes so that the spiritual body can continue to expand its awakening.
It is interesting to work with students who are coming to the Science of Mind teachings for the first time. Their questions are penetrating as they try to wrap their rational minds around the concepts of infinity, eternality, and states of consciousness which are beyond the dualities of good and evil.
The universe is shining along a vast spectrum of wavelengths right now, so indulge - dive in to recognize all the hints, clues, and revelations are providing you direction for defining yourself at the latest, Newest levels. The goal this week is to take the initiative and be the cause for your own creations. It's a time to remake yourself, find new solutions and projects, even if it ends up not working out it's ok, what matters is you make an effort.
Often times much of our time and energy is spent searching for the center of the maze -- the center of ourselves. A lifetime can be spent running frantically around the periphery of Self, not realizing that the hedges we can't see over and that keep us hemmed in, are self made. They are constructs of the mind. We're not aware that if we want to get to the center, we have to sometimes question the way the arrows are pointing.
When you look up at the clear sky at night, you may easily realize a truth at once utterly simple and extraordinarily profound. What is it that you see? The moon, planets, stars, the luminous band of the Milky Way, perhaps a comet or even the neighboring Andromeda Galaxy two million light years away. Yes, but if you simplify even more, what do you see? Objects floating in space. So what does the universe consist of? Objects and space.
