Every now and then it’s worth remembering that everything is ‘living’, even those things we may consider inanimate. Rocks, stones, wooden man-made objects, buildings, furniture, metal etc. Because everything is made from the same stuff; atoms and molecules. And the smallest particles of all are those which comprise ‘thought’. Because thoughts are ‘things’ too. When we have a thought then, we add to the stuff of the universe and EVERYTHING changes. That’s how powerful we are! As a result, we do need to think carefully and make every thought count. Love and Light to all.
So, here’s the thing. When I’m asked “How are you Paul?” I invariably answer, “Always good!”. This response is perplexing to many and I sometimes get a good shellacking from the ‘boss’ for making what appears to be a ridiculous and improbable comment. But the fact remains, there is an aspect of each one of us that sits above the vicissitudes of everyday life and it is attainable by everyone who seeks it. In my blog yesterday, I spoke about ‘acting as if’ to attain ones preferred reality and my almost automatic response (“always good”) dovetails beautifully with this concept. What I’m saying is simply this. If there’s a problem, ignore it, because whatever we ‘shine our Light’ on will invariably grow. Knowing this, we need to choose our targets for illumination carefully and in this way, we not only shine the Light, but create more of it. Much needed in our world today. Love and Light to all.
Just recently, I’ve witnessed first hand the power of Metaphysics. We could simply call it ‘positive thinking’ of course, but it’s so much more than this in reality. Metaphysics, or ‘The Art of Acting As If’, requires not just positive thought but actual BELIEF that ones goal has ALREADY be accomplished and that’s where the ‘acting as if’ kicks in. I fully understand how really frightening this is for many people and the natural reaction is to say to oneself, “Dearie me! If I say that, I’ll really jinx it and what if it doesn’t happen?” It’s human nature to be cautious and even think the worst, or take a ‘wait and see’ approach to all challenges. But the mathematically precise universe responds to every positive and negative belief with equal enthusiasm! HAHAHA! Universe: “You want to wait? OK, we’ll wait. You believe it to BE? Great! So BE it! It’s really that simple, scary as it may sound. So, let’s give it a go now! Just ‘ACT AS IF’ and make that phone call. Visit that person. Clear up the misunderstanding etc. Since time doesn’t exist, everything has already happened anyway. So go on! ACT AS IF! Courage. xxxx :-)
“My religion is kindness,
A good mind. A good heart.
These are the most important things.”
The Dalai Lama
In this modern world, there’s a lot of pressure on all of us. The world situation, work, family, study, relationships. We live with a mountain of concerns and sometimes it appears insurmountable! We are tempted to say “I’M NOT”, but please resist these words at all costs! Instead, let’s proclaim loud and clear our “I AM” list. And when we say ‘I AM’, see these letters twenty feet high and blazing golden in the morning sun! And let’s not let our perceived ‘truths’ get in the way either, because ‘belief precedes reality’. Go on! Make it rich and beautiful and heroic, uplifting and super positive.
When we say “We are One”, do we actually believe it? Intrinsically, I know and accept that our beliefs create our reality, but can we honestly assist in the creation of ‘Oneness’ if we actually think, Sure! We are One, except for those guys, or that religion, or the other thing, can we? Makes no sense! And if we say “Embrace All That Is”, surely it must be absolute? As our personal ‘Game of Life’ unfolds and individually and collectively we seek to manifest a loving and peaceful world, let’s include everyone in our thoughts, friends and foes alike. Because like it or not, that’s Oneness.
