Have it your way

2 comments

I just spent a very busy and productive week in Florida and now I'm on a plane, flying above the clouds to Las Vegas to enjoy some much needed R & R. During the last few days, I have had some interesting conversations that generated the thoughts that are presently begging to be shared.

 

For instance, it has come to my attention that some of us believe that we can get correction from our Higher-selves after our egos have made a decision. As I have said before, both our Higher-selves and our egos are locked down positions. We, the soul, either turn to the right, or turn to the left, for input. And, the received data cannot be refuted by the opposing voice because, by our own determination, the opposing voice has been rendered silent by inattention.

 

It is not uncommon for one to make a determination based on his or her past experience, and thus belief system (from this life or another) and have that determination manipulate his or her present results. Is it so hard to realize there is no past. . . there is just the Law of Mentalism? The results you had in the past, just like the results you are having in the present, are simply the result of what you are thinking and believing.

 

Your thoughts create your reality, and only in the present. The quantum field is always neutral and now. In order for you to get anything out, you have to put that same thing in. For instance, if you are asking for something, the universe can only answer affirmatively. So, you can always know what you've asked for based on what you receive. There are no two ways about this.

 

Think of the universe as a chef in a fine restaurant, and yourself as a hungry patron. Whatever you have ordered, you will be served. We were created to order what we want, eat it, and determine how good it is to us, and for us. Through this process, we naturally make mistakes and ultimately corrections that lead us closer to the awareness of who we already are.

 

Generally speaking, the ego will have us order what is good or satisfying to us; things that add significance to a self that we think of as insignificant until or unless. On the other hand, our Higher-Selves always see us as whole, perfect and complete, and therefore, order what is good for us, allowing us to experience the fullest measure of our perfection.

 

Our Higher-selves have been begging us to learn, play, love and master this incredibly thoughtful game in which we are currently immersed, and I know we all think we have a handle on it. Well, maybe we do, but we'll only know that we do based on results. If we are still surprised by that with which we are confronted; if we still think that someone else's reality determines ours; if we still wonder what will be the outcome of this or that situation, we must roll up our sleeves. We still have some work to do.

 

The way this game is set up, you determine your outcome by who you say you are. If you are a successful player, you realize that you are part of a team, and that the part of you that remains in Spirit is the coach and guide. The plays are being called from an all-knowing place, and understanding that, you are happy to move as directed.

 

One of the most important things to remember is that your Higher-Self guides through the heart and the ego guides through the head. If you find yourself trying to strategize or figure something out, or, if you look to see how someone else has done it, and make a determination as to its value based on whether or not it works for him, you are using your head and thus, following the guidance of the ego.

 

If, however, you are moved in a direction, simply because you feel moved to move in that direction with no attached rhyme or reason, knowing, without knowing how, that something good is happening, you are following your heart. And, for this there is no roadmap so you are going to have to follow confidently, like a blind man with a trusted dog.

 

Wake up tomorrow morning and put in an order for the day (or life) you choose to have. There is nothing and nobody, on any realm that can block the Law of Mentalism. . . you really do get to have it your way. And yes, you do deserve it. No matter how much wrong you did to get here, with the awareness that as the image and likeness of God you cannot be more right, you actually have been playing the game as was intended by its Creator. And now, saying "Yes and Thank You," you can relax and enjoy.

Incredible post. Articles that have significant and savvy remarks are more agreeable,i need a dissertation at any rate to me. It’s fascinating to peruse what other individuals thought and how it identifies with them or their customers, as their point of view could help you later on.

    I spent the first weekend in March participating in the first of the bi-annual meetings of the Association of Transformational Leaders and I notice that I usually leave those three days with at least one great gem. This time it was the presentation of 'What the Bleep' contributor, Dr. Joe Despenza. I was fascinated as Dr. Despenza gave a scientific explanation for every Spiritual thing I have ever shared (with anyone willing to listen) since I arrived on this beautiful planet. Of course he spoke about how your thoughts create your reality and about how those thoughts become the nails that keep you safely locked in your own special coffin. He spoke about the Ascension Attitudes of Love, Praise and Gratitude and how they raise one's vibration and thus, transform his or her circumstances. He spoke about our need to re-identify, dying to the lower nature - survival identity - and identifying as pure, immaculate Spirit. Dr. Joe spoke of how we end up stuck in a feeling loop. He explains: Your brain monitors your chemical state, and the moment you feel any negative emotion, it's going to think more corresponding thoughts equal to how you feel. It fires and wires similar circuits over and over again, and if you turn on enough of those circuits, you keep producing that same level of mind. This reaffirms your identity with the same image and then the limbic brain produces the same neuropeptides in your forebrain which then signals the same hormones, and then you begin to feel even more of the same emotions which then influences you to think more of the same corresponding thoughts. It turns out that, as a result of playing and replaying our old, guilt-ridden, separated, special, stories, our cells get negatively programmed and we become addicted to certain chemicals that, as a result of our repeated emotional responses, are released into our blood streams. These programmed cells and chemicals begin controlling our behavior from the subconscious level, leaving us to act like robots, continuously creating and responding to the same situations the same ways. Can it possibly be that Science is finally proving God? Alhumdulilah!

    October 16, 2017 Today is Monday, the sixth day of this year's ten-day T.I.M.E. project, and I'm flying high (pun intended) from New York to Las Vegas, the second stop of this amazing adventure. On every one of the last five days I have spent with the talented, exciting, award winning South African Youth Choir (SAYC), I have spoken the word 'time,' and, even though I have been using it to speak about the project, this morning I'm musing over the physical phenomenon of time. Last weekend, I attended a gathering of transformational leaders in San Diego, and one of the speakers really held my attention as he spoke about things we can't live without, most of which we were all instantly in agreement with: air, water, food, sleep, but our collective interest was piqued when he added self-expression to the list. We all know that we were created as instruments, channels for God to express and extend through, but I must admit, it never occurred to me to think of the lack of self-expression as life-threatening. However, after a few minutes of pondering, it makes perfect sense. Expressing is like breathing, one absolutely must take in and put out. . . if we could hold our breath for too long, we would surely die. We all know people who, for one reason or another, are too afraid to share their feelings, their ideas or their talents . . . people who spend their lives spectating rather than participating. Now, wouldn't that be the same as not having an exhale follow an inhale? God/Life is always filling us up, and yes then, it would be imperative for us to keep emptying out, or, in other words, finding outlets for self-expression. Authorities are currently looking for a motive for the record-breaking slaughter that occurred in Las Vegas recently and it would certainly be a shame if this, and all of the similar acts of violence of recent times were somehow connected to a misguided longing for self-expression. But I digress. We have been taught that time is a real thing that is divided into three parts: past, present and future.However, those of us who have been paying attention know that in the illusion of time, there is only the present. When yesterday was happening, it was now, and by the time tomorrow happens it will be now. Based on the Law of Mentalism, we know we create our own realities with what we are thinking, however, thinking is a 'right now' phenomenon. If we are not allowing what we experience and learn from moment to moment, to inform and thus transform us, we are not really alive and we are not creating.. . . we are nailed into a coffin, trapped inside of the guilt of what we created some other time, in some other place. Emptying out or forgiving is a mandatory component of happiness. The way this spectacular game called 'LIFE' was laid out, time was introduced as a tool for learning and its resulting forgiving. It is necessary to know what doesn't work in order to choose what does, and we have all taken the time and done a pretty good job learning what will never work if we are to experience extraordinary living. Now, it is time for us to give all of that forth and put what we know into practice. As 'children of the light,' we have utilized a great deal of time, lifetime after lifetime, trying to come up with clever and not so clever ways to survive. And, that may have been relevant during times gone by, but we have spent enough time with survival as the end-game. It is time for us to get on with our Father's business. How, you might ask, do I know what I have to offer to life? My answer would be that it is not up to us to come up with that. If we are here on earth, our contribution has already been established, but we will never be able to access the necessary information using our heads. The data we require can only come from or through our hearts. When you have become sick and tired of coming up with your next brainstorm for survival, only to be dissatisfied and frustrated yet another time, you will cease and desist. You will recognize the need to partner with your Higher-Self. And, you will ask and follow the forth-coming guidance; which, by the way, can only be accessed through the excitement you feel in your heart. One of the things that I found interesting in last week's speaker's presentation was the notion of following your bliss. He suggested that one should strike out as though on a quest for happiness, and that excitement would be your clues. He said that in every moment, weigh your options and do only that which offers the greatest level of excitement, then spend time developing, mastering and experiencing whatever prompts the feeling. And, for heaven's sake, don't be too busy to notice. I loved hearing him say that to all of the receptive hearts in the room. It is definitely my philosophy and one that I know, after many years of experience, is phenomenally effective. As I have said thousands of times . . . "As above so below; as below, so above." If we realize that it is up to us to take care of the things we create, we should know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God takes care of what God creates. Be willing to allow that to be your experience. "Forget about what has happened; don't keep going over old history. Be alert; be present. I am about to do something brand new." (Isaiah 43:18-19) It is time for us to utilize the Law of Mentalism and the power of the present to allow something amazing to come through the channels we were created to be. It is time for us to discover, experience and be elevated by our own bliss. . . Yes and Thank You!
