Nature is always changing, just at different rates of speed.
We are the ones who often attempt to hold things in sameness.
Another person is not obligated to play a role that we design for them.
And we are not obligated to play the roles that others may design for us.
Many times the actions we choose have a negative or oppositional impulse. “I don’t want things to be this way, so I will do this to change it. I don’t want that to happen, so I will do such and such.”
Examples: I don’t want to be late. I don’t want them to be angry with me. I don’t want to lose my job. I can’t stand a messy house. I don’t want to get sick. I don’t want to fail. I don’t want to get fat. I don’t want to run out of gas. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to go hungry, lose friends, lose money, be cheated, look bad, do something stupid, make a bad choice… The list is endless.
So our actions often come from a negative impulse. This is natural, but it is also possible to act from positive impulses. The more our actions come from these, the more happiness and satisfaction we have. Continue reading
When we look out into our world and focus on that which we see there, we are contributing to the expansion of the universe. We are therefore playing an important, vibrant role in the agenda of the universe.
• Difference tones in sound (called combination tones in german).
• The universe is constantly expanding; the agenda of the universe is to expand.
• We as humans have self-awareness and abstract thought ability.
• Our thoughts are forms, thought forms, that have an existence.
• We are god-like, in that we, like The Creator, are creators.
When we look out into our world, everything we focus on is producing a 3rd thought form. There is ourselves, there is the object or concept we are focused on, and there is a third concept which is created by the combination of the two.
In sound frequency when two notes are sounded, a third note is heard
(if it is within our hearing range). Continue reading
• What is it that determines our futures?
• Why is it that some affirmations or visualizations work and some don’t?
• What determines if someone will have a spontaneous healing?
The next moment will be determined by a close match to the present experience. If the visualization or imagining you are doing is profound enough to affect your entire energy imprint (a fully embodied, with every fiber of my being experience), the experiences that become your future will be a close match to that purposely created now.
This is why affirmations have a potential to work well. If they help us go into a state where our now moment is more to our liking, then our future moments will also be more to our liking.
If they don’t give us a with every fiber of my being experience but instead give us a partial experience that is closer to what we want, then our future moments will reflect just that. We will be closer to what we would like but not actually there yet.
Sorry about that, but it cannot be avoided.

Although we may understand that thinking negative thoughts only brings us down even more, sometimes it can be difficult to change that. Afterall, trying to improve something takes effort, desire and will. If we are unhappy, it can seem impossible to shift to being more positive. So here is something that is not so hard to do, but can make a profound difference and bring relief.
I was reminded recently that there are both easy and difficult ways to accomplish things. A story my friend Jim told me about moving a large rock is a good illustration of how working with the universal energies can make things so much easier than just doing things on our own.
Jim was working at a retreat center whose mission was recording the teachings of the world’s elders. They wanted to get videos of these elders while they were still able to pass on their knowledge and wisdom. When the elders came to the center, workshops and opportunities to meet with them were also offered. Continue reading
A friend of mine recently was having trouble with her daughter-in-law. There were all kinds of accusations about my friend not helping enough, not doing things with the grandchildren, etc., none of which were actually true, and which were obviously excuses or ways to rationalize a deeper agenda. My friend was at her wit’s end about how to best handle this.
When we are emotionally mired in a situation ourselves it can be hard to get any nice, clear guidance about how to handle it. Our emotions can plug up the pathways through which good guidance would normally come to us. Continue reading
