About Randolph Ek

My name is Dr. Randolph Ek, Mpsy.D. I started life as one of five children of an alcoholic father. The physical and mental abuse nearly destroyed my life. In fact my self-destructive behavior nearly landed me in prison. I eventually was guided to an alcohol/drug counselor and he directed me to a rehabilitation center. Since that time I have spent more than thirty years devoted to helping people find their ultimate potential.

We can blame our negative, spiraling life on victimization but until we accept responsibility the power we need is beyond us. When we accept our part in our lives and surrender to a higher power, which I choose to call God, intervention is immediate. God allows us to realize our true power. We are all made in God’s Image and Likeness and have all the power of the universe at our disposal.

We are not victims; we are volunteers and once we believe this truth our lives become limitless. God wants us all to have our heart’s desire and he will deliver whatever we continually think about good or bad. Unless I start my day off powerless and humble I cannot make the spiritual connection required to tap into God’s limitless power.

God loves mankind and refuses to leave anyone behind. We can go willingly or we can be dragged to salvation. Pain is merely a symptom of spiritual separation mind, body and spirit. Realize, your individual limited resources, seek help, join others in their quest for spiritual understanding. Realize that all religions are right, yet they are also incomplete.

Wish

Do you wish for things? Of course you do. We all do. A wish without action toward receiving it is a setup for depression. Wish according to Dictionary.com is to want; desire; long for.  We are treated with dreams or wishes in order for our spiritual-self to express to us it’s longing. When we wish we must follow it with action in the direction of the wish or desire. To wish and do nothing usually plummets us into negative feelings, which lead to negative mind sets and low self-esteem.

When we follow our wishes with action, even if we don’t achieve our wishes, we are normally given more information in the process to reenergize ourselves and promote even more action. When a motivated individual moves toward their wishes they seem to get all they need in order to achieve their goals. People who follow wishes with nothing never know the great feeling we get when we achieve results. I have both failed and succeeded in my wishful activity and because I love the feeling of success I am continually being given new intuitive thought.

We are made in the image and likeness of God and our wishes open us up to our need to conceive and meet wishful objectives. I have had sixty jobs in seven different careers. I tell people I was born with “WHY” tattooed on the inside of my forehead. I am continually driven to think, manifest and receive admiration from God. When I live out my spiritual heritage I am gratified with self-esteem and confidence. I know I am capable both from my successes and my failures as they are all part of the same whole. If you want to know what you wish for remember…

Your Life is PERFECT!

Substance

What is substance? According to Dictionary.com substance is that of which a thing consists; physical matter or material; form and substance. I have read several articles with the idea that if God can exist without origin then the universe can also exist without origin. This is not a very thorough argument in that if the universe has always been, where did the intelligence behind the substance come from. There is a cyclic pattern in all that exists from birth to death back to birth. This is all in conjunction with a Power Greater than Ourselves I choose to call God, that is continually creating and re-creating.

In our human existence, lying in our core, exists a power, “a chip off the old block,” born in the image and likeness of God. Of all God’s creatures we are the only true creators, if we are open to God’s energy to move through us. We are not the actual creators but merely the co-creators. Because we are made in the image and likeness of God, we are capable of unlimited great things. When we link our minds to God’s mind we not only unlock our abilities but we expand our imagination. Mankind is continually reinventing our preconceived limits.

We have been given tremendous substance to work with and there is enough form and substance on our planet to provide all of us with everything we can imagine. The more we pray and meditate, the more we align ourselves with God. The more we become spiritually motivated we can manifest substance into dreams. When we look back fifty years we will be amazed at what we manifested and how most of it was beyond our imagination at any earlier time. My greatest manifestations came at the direction of intuition or God. If you want to know how you can manifest substance into your dreams remember…

Omnism

I recently found a word that fairly describes my spiritual faith. The word is Omnism. According to the Urban Dictionary, Omnism is the belief in the validity of all religions. I am a metaphysical minister and not a member of any religion. I find truth in all religions and what they decide that separates them is also what I find that alienates me from them.  I believe in a Master of the universe. I call that Master God. I believe God to be unconditional love or grace. I don’t believe that God has any favorites or is going to leave any of his seven-plus billion children behind, no matter how many lives it takes.

If God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent then he understands that in our physical self we are fallible. When we surrender ourselves to God and learn, through meditation and prayer, to follow God’s guidance. When I am separated from God I am merely an animal. Science is also right in many of its aspects and I can no more separate myself from science than I can from any or all of man’s religions. We need to connect with God both vertically and horizontally. We must pray and meditate and share our ideas about God and life with others.

I find most of my horizontal spirituality from memberships in several twelve step groups. It seems that my addictions point out my character defects or spiritual roadblocks. It seems easy to find solace in stuffing my spiritual void with pleasure or physical comfort. The problem with using pleasure to replace God is that not only does the pleasure not fill the void but it actually increases it. The farther away from God I get, the higher price I pay as my spiritual discomfort increases. God will never stop loving us, which may get pretty painful. If you want to know if you are an Omnism stand back from your life and remember…

Routine

All successful people develop routines. A routine, according to Dictionary.com, is regular, unvarying, habitual, unimaginative, or rote procedure; an unvarying and constantly repeated formula, as of speech or action; convenient or predictable response. When I worked as an instructor for Smith Systems vehicle driving education it was my duty to drill basic driving skills into drivers into a routine. Each seven seconds a driver would look out fifteen seconds worth of distance, scan back to mirrors, scan all mirrors and back to fifteen seconds of distance. This would keep a driver constantly aware of current information allowing new information preference to response.

I have symptoms of ADHD. I have a hard time staying focused, especially if I don’t have passion for the procedure. Passion should have priority in a person’s life and everything else should be routine. When I have a routine in my life I am less stressed and more available. When I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is relieve myself and read from seven motivational daily readers. This routine has turned into a very positive habit. When I start my day with positive affirmation my day runs smooth and dependable. I can get more done when my focus is not spread too thin. Routine has changed my life and allowed me to live with those character defects that are attached to my DNA.

Positive routines develop positive habits and positive habits develop positive lives. When one is living one’s life guided by spiritual principles, one is within God’s grace and walks hand in hand with the Creator. We are made in God’s image and likeness and when the procedures in our lives are turned over to habits through routines we are present to focus our passion on our dreams, plans and goals. There are things in everyone’s lives that are unpopular and difficult to accomplish but routines help significantly. If you want to know what in your life should be prioritized and established in routines remember…

Sacred

Is your life sacred? We see almost half of all the marriages in our society fail. Could it be that our relationships, in fact all our lives, are not sacred? Sacred according to Dicionary.com is connection with God or dedicated to a religious purpose and so deserving veneration. Since the government got involved in marriages, they have been on a continuous downward spiral. I agree with separation of church and government but it seems that church cannot be involved in state but state can be involved in church.

Marriage should only be important in the eyes of God. You can call whatever other partner commitment people may join into anything else but marriage. You can offer the same governmental subsidies to all partnerships but marriage should remain sacred. When marriages were sacred they lasted. They may have been difficult, but they lasted. If we would return to the church’s concept of marriage we would return to equal respect, which is the center of a successful marriage.

My marriage is only a small part of my sacred life. When I think of how God might admire the conduct of my life my life goes well. When I move in a negative direction it is usually because I move faster than God. A sacred life is a life moving slowly and methodically with constant intuitive spiritual communication. My life is not mine it it God’s and I must treat it with love and respect. I am blessed with a wonderful marriage because when I make a mistake I ask for forgiveness from God and the person I offended. If you want to know if your life is sacred remember…

Ready

In the work that I do, there are many scientific stages to accomplish before freedom and sanity return. The most overlooked step by many professionals or novices; is the individual ready. In the book Alcoholics Anonymous they utilize the infamous Twelve Steps. Most sponsors start their people on step one, yet on page thirty in the book it is stated, “We learned that we had to fully concede to our innermost selves that we were alcoholics. This is the first step in recovery. The delusion that we are like other people, or presently may be, has to be smashed.” Are your prospects ready to go to any lengths?

I refuse to work with people who remain in denial to their illness. Our truth is our truth even if it isn’t the truth. There is only one truth in the Universe and that is God. As long as we are not ready to concede that we are at best secondary to God then we cannot expect any long lasting effect from the arduous efforts to recover from any addiction. Addiction is the word I use for anything I put between God and myself, blocking the sunlight of the spirit. I must be ready, even if only slightly, to surrender all my worldly efforts to a loving and graceful God. If my ideas of God are fear based I may not be able to surrender, while if my ideas of God are love based I instinctually surrender.

When I was in the military I thought a lot about what it would be like to surrender to an enemy and in some cases suicide may have been easier. I had a similar idea about God. Until I was assured that God was not the fearful God of my youth, but a loving and forgiving God, I was unable to surrender to God. This was when I was truly ready. Even with my ongoing readiness, I suffer with denial and delusion. Once I became aware, I have had to surrender to lesser addictions including cigarettes, cigars, anger, sex, gambling, thought and most recently food. In every aspect of my recovery, being ready was the most important one. So if you want to know if you have any addictions you need to become ready to surrender, remember…

Stamina

Do you have sufficient stamina? Are you capable of following through with your dreams? Dictionary.com defines stamina as strength of physical constitution; power to endure disease, fatigue, privation, etc. When things are hard people tend to lose their stamina. They tend to lose their focus, their desire, their dreams. Failure is caused by a loss of stamina. The loss of stamina is normally a byproduct of a fuzzy dream, poor plans or a lack of support. We must remember that God put over seven and a half billion on the planet for a reason and I believe that reason is so that we can all help each other be the best we were meant to be.

To find the stamina I need to reach my goals I must start with a powerful dream. When I have had a dream for a while I am haunted with thoughts, which start my journey. I sit down and plan my approach. Even though my plans may change I cannot expect any success if I don’t start with a plan. When my plan is clear, I share it with others. I share my ideas and plans with others for two reasons. First I need input from another source of thought attributable from my friends. And secondly I look for as much help as I can find to guarantee my success.

Once I have a plan and a support group I begin my excursion with a logical time frame in order to know when I may need to change my plans in order to achieve my dream. We must never forget that God has a job description. God’s job is to answer prayers so I pray fervently throughout my junket in order to receive intuitive thought. I exploit any opportunity in order to increase my stamina and follow my dream to fruition. The final product I achieve will usually not be the exact snapshot of my original dream but it usually is beyond what I could have originally perceived. If you want to increase your stamina remember…

Perspective

It is interesting, how in our society, we can have a common experience with such varied perspective. The far left and the far right are so sure their perspective is correct that they are willing to exterminate each other. Perspective, according to Dictionary.com is the state of one’s ideas, the facts known to one, etc., in having a meaningful interrelationship. We must remember that in Zen Buddhism, it is said, “You don’t see the world as it is; you see it as you are.” I am guided by filters. The truth is that once we move away from our living in automatic we open ourselves to new information that will move us to the truth instead of our truth.

God isn’t a past experience or a future experience so we must not live in either of these perspectives. We must live in the now, open to spiritual inspiration. We cannot have a perception and allow ourselves to be guided by God. All my truths have allowed God’s generosity to bring me to my present and if I want to stay open to God’s grace I must live my truth, while staying open to new truth. It is faith in a power greater than myself that keeps me from relying on my own understanding. My past life, prior to finding my current relationship with my God, is a testament to my life and will in self-will.

My perspective today is based on a conception of God so large that it includes religion, science, history and most of all intuition. I continue to research all information that crosses my path. I do not look for God I try to gain perspective through my own experience, strength and hope. I have been blessed with a life that came to me. I used ideas, dreams, goals, wins, losses, success & failure to guide me toward my ideal life. God is constantly helping to mold my perspective and can only do it with my voluntary surrender. It is through surrender that my life has become great and not through any greatness on my part. If you want to gain new perspective remember…

Accountability

I have been saddened for some time now realizing the lack of accountability in the world. I have been an avid opponent to political correctness since its inception. Victimism is a lack of accountability. Accountability, according to Dictionary.com is the state of being accountable, liable, or answerable; or my definition of responsibility. Any part of my life I fail to be accountable for I stay powerless over. I don’t want to be powerful but I do want my life to be properly managed by God, and in this I must be accountable.

The more we hand our accountability over to others, the more power we give to whoever accepts our accountability. If I don’t accept accountability for my life, there is a good chance I will fail to rise above the adversity I face. We are made in God’s image and likeness and are required to be accountable for our actions. When I realize “I” failed, “I” and only “I”, can make the changes in my life that will lead me to my success. I would be farther ahead if, whenever I was part of a challenge, I always remained accountable no matter who was at fault.

We must quit looking at our government, our environment, our parents, our spouse, our friends or anyone other than ourselves in accepting accountability for our lives. It is good to be in partnership with others but we must never deny accountability for our part in the partnership. I often partner with others in an opportunity to achieve synergy or acquiring more together than we could have achieved separately. Equality means accountability. I inventory my life quite often and realize my accountability or lack of accountability by remembering…

Wrath

Have you been a victim of or instigator of wrath? Wrath according to Dictionary.com is strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger. The Bible uses the word wroth, which wrath finds its origin. All of our English language derives its origin from interpretation of languages. In my research and in my long following of Emmet Fox I find that the word wroth was used to describe God’s emotion, while God doesn’t have emotion as it is a human response to love and fear and God only knows love.

Wroth means God’s activity and not a word connected with anger, which is derived from fear. We are made in God’s image and likeness and are given free will. It is God’s will that we follow the plan we were given by God, which is embedded in our DNA. When we follow our Ego and move in a direction contrary to God’s will we resist God activity or wroth and anytime we resist God or universal energy there is resistance, therefore pain is involved. When we feel pain we may believe that this is punishment from God and actually it is merely God trying to draw us back into Its plan.

Wrath, according to our current vocabulary, is rage, rage is anger, anger is fear and God is not fear. Fear is the shadow created by our turning from the light or God. God is light. God is life. God is truth. God is love. God is intelligence. God is soul. God is spirit. God is principle. But God is not FEAR!!! It is this concept of God that is behind terrorism. It is this concept of God that has been behind every reprehensible act in our history. We must stop using wrath to dictate our understanding of God and get back to following God, which is found by remembering…
