Working With The Law

Working With The Law

What we dwell on defines the course of our thinking and our lives. When we dwell on thoughts of “my bad luck” or “I’ll never find a good job” or “I hate…”, put simply, when we focus on the negative, we invite in exactly what we are trying to avoid! This is the Law of Unintended Consequences demonstrated and being a law, the converse is true as well, so when we dwell on thoughts of abundance, peace, kindness, love, and serenity, we attract those qualities into our lives.

Dwelling on hate or its cousin resentment is 100 per cent effective in shutting us off from the sunlight of the Spirit, their only purpose to produce more hate and resentment. Remember the analogy of one bad apple? Apples used to be placed in a barrel filled with pure water to preserve them through the winter. If a single apple in the barrel began to rot, the rest of the apples became tainted, inedible. Hate, resentment, “poor me” thinking has the same effect on our consciousness, tainting every aspect of our lives. Though we need to watch consistently for all negativity and limitation thinking, hate and resentment are particularly destructive.

To be clear: jobs are lost and found, money comes and goes and there are bad intentioned people in the world, our health issues will increase as we age (and one of them will be the last one) what matters is how we address our thoughts when they surface in our consciousness, do we dwell on the low or seek the high? Do we seek God’s will or wallow in the negative? By choosing love, kindness, patience and tolerance as our course this law will open the door of undreamt-of possibilities, often from completely unexpected sources, a fountainhead of miracles revealed, living at raised levels of consciousness, peace of heart and mind realized. So again, the choice is always ours. Choose wisely and make the law work for you.

Consider: to quit smoking see yourself free of cigarettes, not as someone “trying” to quit. You have either quit or you haven’t, trying is destined to fail for who wants to “try” hard things like quitting smoking when there are easy things like smoking. If we are persistent in the changed approach soon the smoke free “new man” (or woman) you have built in your consciousness will emerge and you will be free of cigarettes. You did not quit smoking; you simply outgrew it.

Smoking Bacon Avocado Cheeseburgers

We have decided to make a change in our life, like quitting smoking. We throw away our cigarettes (or smoke them up) and announce to the world we are now a non-smoker. What changed? If I just polished off a bacon avocado cheeseburger (with fries of course) and then announce I am a vegan, am I? If we have a room full of exercise equipment or paid up gym membership does it mean we are physically fit? The principle is demonstration versus intention. Our intentions may be noble, but nothing happens until we take action and follow through. The question is: what course of action should we follow to be successful.

Change is a process; the new man is not born in a day. Wayne Dyer writes in The Power Of Intention: When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. Embracing this spiritual truth, we learn to think from the end. Consider: to quit smoking see yourself free of cigarettes, not as someone “trying” to quit. You have either quit or you haven’t, trying is destined to fail for who wants to “try” hard things like quitting smoking when there are easy things like smoking. If we are persistent in the changed approach soon the smoke free “new man” (or woman) you have built in your consciousness will emerge and you will be free of cigarettes. You did not quit smoking; you simply outgrew it. Think of it this way: when children we did not know that the last time we played hide and seek or made mud pies or built a fort was the last time, it just was. We could have made more pies or forts or organized a round of hide and seek, but we didn’t and we didn’t think about it, it just happened, part of our natural progression in thought and action, without conscious thought or plan on our part.

If getting physically fit is the goal, avoid making “deals” with yourself or picking a time or date to start. Instead, before the first sit-up or minute on the elliptical, start by seeing yourself exercising in your mind’s eye, visualize yourself exercising daily, throughout the day. Soon the urge to exercise will become overwhelming. The thoughts of “it’s hard”, “where will I find the time” and the like gone, just like the mud pies.

Train yourself to think from the end. Like any new activity, at first it will feel clumsy and unfamiliar. If you persist, it will become second nature, like riding a bike. Intention is the vision; you must provide the conditions within your consciousness for the ultimate success of your demonstration.

Oh, and there is nothing wrong with the occasional bacon avocado cheeseburger, with fries of course, after all, they are the food of the Gods.

What’s In Your Mind?

What’s In Your Mind?

We are constantly building up or tearing down our mental structure by the things we ingest: books, magazines, newspapers, social media and conversations of all stripes. Then there is the unconscious ingestion of messaging via television broadcasts of sports, news, talk shows, sitcoms, dramas, movies, history and learning, “reality” shows (I always wonder whose “reality” those programs are based on) and of course, infomercials and commercials.


All input affects, colors, our thinking and world view. We choose the type of structure, materials and practices that compose and build our consciousness, usually without much thought or discernment on our part. Consider: would we knowingly use defective building materials or stand for shoddy workmanship in our home? Haphazard repairs done to our vehicle or place our life knowingly in the hands of a questionable physician? Our consciousness or soul if you prefer, is more precious than any home or vehicle repair or even bodily health, for the structure we dwell in, the car we drive, even our body is a temporary construct, while our consciousness is eternal.

So, beginning today, take a moment and consider your mental diet, but do not rush off willy-nilly making changes or taking vows, we have all done this in the past when “deciding” to lose weight, eat better or begin an exercise regimen and though our motives were sound, we placed unrealistic expectations on ourselves virtually guaranteeing failure. As our awareness grows, we quietly and gently in prayer and meditation ask to be shown what changes and action should be taken, asking the Miraculous for guidance and the needed power to carry them out.

3 Steps To Freedom

3 Steps To Freedom

The world provides a myriad of answers and solutions to the problems and challenges in our lives.  Watch TV, listen to the radio, social media or click on any of the spam messages in your in-box and an “answer” can be found for what is troubling you, usually all that is required is PayPal, a credit card or bank routing number. This secular basis of living provides unlimited answers to life’s questions, the real question is how effective are they? If freedom is just a click or phone call away, why is the world still bedeviled?  Living on the Spiritual Basis, we have a new set of tools for addressing the conditions troubling us: We treat them spiritually. OK, so what does that mean and how do we do it? Glad you asked:

First: Do not package your concerns. General prayers are better than none but provide only general answers and solutions. Be specific. Take the time to write down and separate out the things that are troubling you. What do you want removed from your life and what do you want to come into your life. Be specific.

Second: Now that you have your list, address each item separately. Consider your concern in the light of your spiritual knowledge. Claim the Great Creative Life Force, as you understand it, will address this concern, in its own time, in its own way in the perfect form for you. Avoid visualizing how you think things should progress for this is outlining and is counterproductive, visualize only the power working in your life, providing, healing, creating, doing for you what you cannot do for yourself.

Third: When finished close with a simple prayer/affirmation thanking God, as you understand Him, for knowing Him better. Do not allow yourself to become tense or demanding in these sessions, for this only retards progress. Do not speak about your specific prayers with anyone, for this is between you and the universe, so keep it private. Do however remain open and accountable to your spiritual guides and teachers, relating the action you are taking, just keeping the wording of the prayers private. Do not look impatiently for signs of progress. Faith is trust; trust is faith, Trust in the Miraculous, for miracles are our birthright.

Follow these directions for 30 days. If you are persistent and consistent in your demonstration some remarkable changes will be taking place in your life. Few, if any, will be in the manner or following the script we would have written, but they will be exactly what we need, at precisely the moment needed, arriving typically without fanfare. We will have begun to intuitively know what to do and how to do it with the needed strength, if we remain consistent and willing.

After 30 days feel free to share this method and what happened to you in a general way with any you think ready to step out in faith, but it is imperative that you keep the specifics of your list and prayer private, encased in the secret place of your heart where no one but you and the Miraculous have access.

Misery Daydreaming

Misery Daydreaming

Everyone daydreams, of what do you dream? One of the foundational truths is: thoughts are causative, the thoughts we entertain will find out picturing in our lives. Now, I know what you are thinking, cool, I will think about having robust health, a boatload of money, healthy happy relationships or stopping smoking and poof, problem solved. Unfortunately, wistfully dreaming about something without a basis for generating the change in conditions is destructive and counterproductive. Consider: many who want to stop smoking don’t dream of being smoke free but instead focus on how hard it will be to quit. If lacking financial abundance, they don’t dream of following their heart’s desire, money and abundance coming by virtue of doing what they love, but on the reasons why they have not followed their heart (too old, too young, need schooling, what will people think, etc.). If experiencing poor health, they do not focus on good health, free of the restrictions ill health has placed on them, instead they dwell on their “ailments” various symptoms while never missing an opportunity to talk about “their” condition, even with strangers. When thinking of others, they daydream typically about past negative encounters, imagining all the things they should have said and done differently, dwelling on how they will do better next time, even fantasizing to the point of rehearsing whole future conversations in their minds eye. Oh, and God forbid they stop and consider the part they played, their side of the street.

So if you wish to be miserable, here lies the recipe: Dwell on getting even with those who have hurt you (real or imagined), for dreaming of revenge slams the door of serenity, instilling resentment as your constant companion. Focus on every medical condition you hear about and wonder if perhaps you have some of the symptoms, Googling a must here. Never waste an opportunity to join any discussion dealing with conspiracy theories, especially online, for later when alone this will provide great negative daydreaming fodder. Watch and read everything you can dealing with end of world scenarios and daydream anxiously on how you will cope or die as a result. Spend time ruminating on what is missing in your life and how it will never happen. Above all, dream darkly; as soon as the slightest ray of sunshine tries to enter your thoughts snuff it out, for the world really is a hard, sharp place.

Conversely when freedom and happiness are uppermost in our mind, we adopt the path of Living on the Spiritual Basis. Having recognized the power of thought, both for good and ill, we chose freedom over fear and limitation, choosing the course of our lives by rejecting and resisting the Adversary Fear, reaping the harvest of peace of heart and mind. Though we have no control over the thoughts which float up from our subconscious, we choose the dreams we dwell on, so our choice is simple, will we stand in the light, free from the bondage of self or dream darkly, wrapped in anger, limitation, fear, pain and resentment? The Miraculous nature of our heritage leaves the choice in our hands, choose wisely.

Quantum Food For Thought

Quantum Food For Thought

Is anything really beyond the purview of the Miraculous? Money? Healing? Peace of mind? Love? Serenity? Anything? Spiritual teachers and Religions have been teaching for thousands of years that the avenues of delivery of the things we require, materially and Spiritually, are unlimited, but there is only one source, God. This “truth” has been related in a myriad of ways, but just for a moment let’s set aside any religious or spiritual conceptions concerning Divine Mind. In the last few decades science, particularly physics and quantum mechanics have discovered some interesting things. For instance, at the most basic levels of existence, the sub-atomic, there are infinitesimally small particles which demonstrate “intelligence” (quantum enigma) in the way they react when observed.


Now these particles (Quarks, Gluons and a couple dozen more, give or take) comprise all matter, from quasars to the mayfly, grains of sand to super massive black holes, you and me. Additionally, these particles, the matrix of all matter, are entangled at the quantum level in ways which defy the physical laws that govern our existence, yet they make up all that we touch, feel and see! What if embodied in these particles, the observed “intelligence,” this Universal Creative Life Force was, for lack of a better term, the mind of God? Then “God” is not only everywhere but is everything. That everything and everyone are extensions of Divine Mind, the Universal Creative Life Force. Sounds kinda spiritual. Just a thought, can’t prove it any more than I can “see” a Quark, but it does give one pause to ponder, food for thought, in a good way.
