Dominion

Genesis 1:26-28 in the KJV of the Holy Bible states, “And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish in the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, of God created he him; male and female, created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Dominion, according to Dictionary.com is the power or right of governing and controlling; sovereign authority, rule, control. This is the essence of our responsibility of our planet. We should be constantly evaluating the health of our planet and making changes in any way possible to keep dominion over its health and welfare. If the environmental issues we face are not our cause, and are of natural or God caused, then we need only to do our best. We must constantly be monitoring our planet as it is the only one we will ever have. Our scientists may be looking for another home for us but no one reading this would live through the trip.

We must save our air, land, water, animals, plants, insects, birds, fish and anything that has life from extinction. Life is God and to allow anything on this planet to extinguish knowing there is a possibility we may in any way be responsible is disrespectful of God. To allow death is to cause death and we are held responsible to the degree we are aware of our part. There is a balance between the environmental terrorists and the greedy business person. The answer to all of life’s riddles are somewhere between the far left and far right. If you want to know how to have more dominion remember…

Comparison

A major issue I find with most of my clients is that they compare themselves to others. Compare, according to dictionary.com, means to examine in order to note similarities and differences; to consider or describe as similar. Most people are not aware enough of their own personality to know what they should be comparing. Twentieth century management use to say, “Find your flaws and conquer them.” Twenty-first century management says, “Find your strengths and hire out your weaknesses.

There are seven and a half billion people on the planet. It is believed that since the first human showed up on earth there have been two hundred and five billion people. Of those billions of people, no two of them have had the same DNA. We are all individual and unique. We share personality traits but we are each distinct. When I have no one to compare myself to I am able to move about in total freedom. I can learn to let instead of make. I can relax and find intuitive thought.

When I am not comparing myself to others I am free to be my ultimate self. I am able to reach my ultimate potential. When I am learning what is my natural self, the self God graced me with, I can relax and move forward with faith and confidence. When I even slightly compare myself with others I see flaws that don’t actually exist. Matthew 7:1&2 of The Holy Bible (KJV) says, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” If I want to know where I need to stop comparison I only need to remember…

Present

When I was playing golf today it occurred to me that I often play golf without actually being present. Golf is a game that requires extensive focus and to stay focused one must be totally present. Present according to Dictionary.com is being, existing, or occurring at this time or now; current; immediately. The mind can only focus on one thing at a time. When I have other things on my mind, my mind switches from one thing to another trying to solve all that it is given. When I stay focused on my golf game everything feels perfect and my game becomes satisfactory.

When I began in my quest for recovery I had so many unresolved issues I was lucky to isolate a few, let alone one. When I inventory my life and look for unresolved issues I dissolve my need to think about my past and am free to be in the present.  Today, I need to work persistently in staying in the now. Even when I am not plagued by my past, I have to work hard at being here, now. God can guide me with intuition but intuition only comes when I am in the now so if I am focused on yesterday or tomorrow I am going it alone.

Being present is my primary goal in life. When I am present God is available. God is always available, so when I am focused, intuition, inspiration and insight is also available. Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Imagination is a form of intuition and intuition can become a working part of the mind once we realize where it comes from and know that it is only in the now. God is present in the present. God knows that the present is the start of everything. If you want to know how to stay in the presence remember…

Godliness

Genesis 2:7 of the Holy Bible (KJV), it is stated, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” This declares that we are a piece of God. We are his breath. We are at one with him and without him we have no life. Life is being Godly. When I hear the word Christian I think Christ like and yet I have never met a Christian I would consider Christ like. So, becoming is probably the best we humans will ever achieve in trying to be Christ like or God like. Godliness therefore, is a practice more than a destination.

I practice living within a set of principles relating to God or Love. Patience, tolerance, helpfulness, gratitude, compassion, etc. are examples of spiritual principles. Giving one’s best in following spiritual principle is Godliness. When we fall victim of our human condition or Ego we lose sight of our Godliness and fail or sin. I prefer sin to be a stumble more than a fall. As soon as I recognize my separation from God I am alerted by pain and I immediately return to oneness and am brought back into the Garden of Eden and am surrounded with God’s love.

I may not be able to stay spiritually focused constantly, but God provided pain as a symptom of Godlessness. The longer I am free from all my addictions, the better I can stay focused on God and eventually meld God into all my human existence Through constant prayer and meditation I am guided by God to develop new spiritual habits that override my human habits. I learn to trust in God to show me how to find his way for me, which is my ultimate potential. If you want to learn how to find your personal map to the Garden of Eden remember…
