Submission

People don’t tend to be very submissive. People seem to believe that being submissive is a form of weakness and yet until we become submissive to God or some other altruistic  deity, we are all actually totally powerless. Submissive, according to Dictionary.com is an inclination or readiness to submit or yield to the authority of another; unresistingly or humbly obedient. I have learned to be submissive to God and in the process I don’t have to be submissive to anyone else. I find all my power in my relationship with God and we are self-sufficient.

We all know internally that we are limited. This awareness creates fearfulness. Our fear blocks our oneness with God and we manifest fear in all that we do. When we accept our need for God and become submissive to that power we become love and we manifest love in all that we do. The more complete our submissiveness the more complete our manifestation of love. When we become constantly submissive, our lives take on a new direction. We become constantly intuitive.

When intuition is a constant state of awareness we make good decisions. Even though our decisions may seem in error, our faith keeps us out of the way and we allow life to run on life’s terms. All our actions seem to lead us into new directions. These new directions take us to places that put us in a position of being of maximum service to God and our fellows. When we are submissive to God we are equal to all the lives on the planet; we treat all life with love, dignity and respect and we become one. To help us to become submissive we merely need to remember…

Reflection

A great life is a life drenched in reflection. Reflection finds flaws and strengths and allows us to make logical, conscious changes in order to be of maximum service to God and all of humankind. Great decisions are necessary in achieving our ultimate potential and to improve on our decision making skills we must stay reflective. Reflection according to Dictionary.com is a fixing of the thoughts on something; careful consideration. Merely looking at ourselves and doing so with contemplative reflection is the difference between eating a meal and enjoying a feast. If I merely take an inventory of my life, the information at first glance may be deceptive, while honest reflection separates the wheat from the chaff.

Before my life was transformed, I made the same mistakes over and over again, banking on my luck changing. I am not sure how I expected things to change as I never made any changes. Now I live in constant reflection, opening my mind to new information. Much of the information I was brought up to believe as facts, has been proven to be false. Physics, nutrition, social values, morality and even politics have changed dramatically. If I didn’t reflect on my behavior, driven by my beliefs, molded by what I believed to be facts, I would not change my behavior. As a metaphysical psychologist, most of my time is utilized in helping people realize their faulty thinking and changing their thoughts and actions.

Live, reflect, change, repeat. This seems to be the way I live my life. With sixty jobs and seven careers, a failed marriage, years of substance abuse and treating people with a lack of respect I have had a lot of reflecting to do. This reflection has served me well. So well that I never subside in my practice of questioning most of my behavior. I don’t view my reflection with any consternation, I view it with wonder and awe. All any of us know is based on what we may have believed to be the truth but the truth changes so often there is always a need to oversee our daily lives. I cannot live in automatic. I must stay live a conscious life. To know what we may need to reflect on remember…

Average

Do you judge your life against averages? Do you judge yourself by the success and failures of others? Are you seeking to fulfill someone else’s dreams and ambitions?  Do you even have a clue to who your true self is? Average according to Dictionary.com is a quantity, rating, or the like that represents or approximates an arithmetic mean; a typical amount, rate, degree, etc.; norm. I remember thirty-seven years ago when I would have given anything to be average or normal and today it is the last thing I would ever want for me, my family, my friends or my clients. Actually I wouldn’t wish average or normal on anyone on the planet.

Average is an unreal vision as it is figured by adding everyone together and dividing it by the number of participants. When I am living “of the world,” or non-spiritual, it is all I have to compare to. When I initiate a spiritual life through humility, prayer and meditation, I find an inner calling that is personally chosen for only me. I am currently aware of my inner calling and live it to the max daily. I don’t try to understand it. I don’t try to develope it.  I don’t try to understand it. I just live it. I evaluate the external input of my environment and adjust accordingly.

Average is not a benchmark yet we have developed it as a way to evaluate our education, rewards, punishments, morality, etc. We are letting our society develop our morality, instead of our morality develop our society. We all know right and wrong as long as we are communicating with God. We know what we should and shouldn’t do before we ask anyone their opinions. We tend to associate the person we ask for an opinion with the opinion we are looking for. A spiritual life has no room for averages. We are all made individually and have a special calling. If you want to know what your calling is remember…

Apprehension

Apprehension according to Dictionary.com is anticipation of adversity or misfortune; suspicion or fear of future trouble or evil. If you live your life with apprehension you are not really living. If perfection is your aim, you will never hit the bullseye.  As perfection is of God, making it a spiritual component of life, apprehension is not compatible as it is a component of fear or not God. When one spends sufficient time in the practice of prayer and meditation, one finds faith and confidence, which dissolves apprehension.

If we are performing with any level of apprehension, we cannot compete with people who are moving with faith and confidence. Apprehension, by its nature, slows us down and makes us susceptible to all the traps that fear creates. One can find a degree of confidence in many ways including experience and great support, but nothing is better in building confidence than a spiritual connection with God. We were made in God’s image and likeness so the more perfect we visualize God the more perfection we are capable of.

I have heard people say that a certain amount of fear is good. I cannot agree with this statement. Although a certain amount of apprehension is normal to the human condition it is not acceptable. The more fearless you make your life the more you will achieve. Although I know that I will suffer apprehension on occasion, it will never be acceptable for me. I am constantly trying to improve my confidence with continued personal inventories and constant prayer and meditation to get the insight only faith can deliver. If you want to know where to find your apprehension remember…
