Congestion

Many of my clients are congested with guilt, resentments or sadness. When people are congested, their lives become unresponsive. Congestion according to Dictionary.com is overcrowding or clogging. Just like our veins can get congested with plaque or fatty deposits and stop the flow of blood to vital body parts our mind can get congested with negative information and past unresolved experiences. We must continue to inventory our life and resolve our past in order to dissolve life   Anything we fill ourselves up with that do not have their roots firmly buried in love, decreases or terminates our Life Source or God consciousness.

We are both human and spiritual and these two conditions both need our attention. Matthew 6:24 of the KJV Bible states, “No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” The Bible also describes God as jealous. God’s jealousy is more of a statement that describes our life when we separate ourselves from God. Earthly things and experiences that separate us from our Soul is what creates the congestion that I am discussing. In metaphysics the acronym SIN stands for Self-Inflicted Nonsense.

The solution to our spiritual congestion, or our sinful nature, is proper understanding God’s nature. We could never describe God, but I can guarantee you that God is grace, or unconditional love. Humans have a conscience or a piece of God in them. This conscience tries to guide us in right thoughts and behaviors . But when we fail to take the Soul’s advice, feelings that our behavior or thoughts have violated God ensue. These feeling will resolve when we are truly sorry for our thoughts or behaviors, as God neither has nor harbors resentments. If you want to keep from becoming congested, remember…

Nirvana

I remember years ago when I first heard the term nirvana many mental pictures formed, whereas, if I truly reached nirvana no pictures would form. Dictionary.com defines nirvana as in Buddhism, freedom from the endless cycle of personal reincarnations, with their consequent suffering, as a result of the extinction of individual passion, hatred and delusion: attained by the Arhat, as his goal but postponed by the Bodhisattva. As in Hinduism, salvation through the union of Atman and Brahma. I believe Nirvana as being the place in life where one has totally turned their life over to God and as the Bible declares, “Judge not.”

When I can see life as perfect, neither over reacting in a positive nor negative way. I have reached Nirvana. When I see that God is both the Yin and the Yang; both the positive and the negative, I need not believe that I know right nor wrong. I merely move away from the things that block me from God and move toward the things that unite me with God. My feelings are for me to communicate with God as they are merely love and fear. Love is God and fear is not God. When I react to these feeling instead of merely utilizing them to rebalance my life I block God’s guidance. In fact, I begin playing God.

I was told many years ago that with my personality I may never know serenity; the best I may accomplish is burnout. What my friend failed to recognize is that God is in charge of the universe and burnout usually leads to surrender and surrender opens the line of communication between us and God. When I tired of burnouts I surrendered and turned my will and my life over to the love and care of God. Even before I offered myself to God, God worked in my life. Like a loving parent God has never left me or failed me. When we become ready to transform from our human nature to our spiritual nature Nirvana awaits us. Just remember…

Attuned

Are you fully aware? Are you attuned? To which of the five senses are you loyal? I tell my clients you should not wait for your ship to come in at the airport. Attuned according to Dictionary.com is to bring into accord, harmony or sympathetic relationship; adjust. Merriam Webster proclaims attunement as to make aware or responsive. The primary attunement I am speaking is the attunement of our creator. God is available to us 24/7. God is always open for business. God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. What cuts us off to this Great Power is the lack of our attunement.

The program of Alcoholics Anonymous states that we seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand Him. You must find a God that you are comfortable with. Once this contact is made through prayer and meditation, it must be maintained through lifestyle and attunement. We must move from a conscious contact with God to a constant conscious contact with God. When I am constantly tuned into God I receive constant guidance. I can always tell you when my actions parallel God’s will for me as they are successful and painless. The majority of our society is on a collision course with disaster as we have lost our spiritual attunement and are distancing ourselves from God on a destructive path.

We are made in God’s image and likeness. We are saturated in spirit and yet we stay focused on our outer world. The Bible says, “We cannot serve God and mammon.” We must stay attuned to our spiritual self and quit trying to find our answers from external sources. I spent most of my life trying to invest in worldly knowledge. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” God wants us all to have our hearts desire so be attuned to your highest good for that is God’s will. You will find the answer when you remember…

Guidance

I have a manageability factor of one. I hate to be told what to do. Maybe the sixty jobs and seven careers I have had, may have something to do with this character defect. I don’t accept guidance until I am sure I am lost. Guidance according to Dictionary.com is the act or function of guiding; leadership; direction. Most of the guidance I was given before my current transformation directed me against my ultimate potential, therefore guiding me toward negative results. I eventually became self-sufficient and close-minded.

When my life came crashing down, the realization of my self-guidance being the cause of all my failure, became evident. I leaned heavily on the guidance of positive people around me. It was apparent that they too had survived similar situations to mine. It was at that point my life began to improve. Eventually the guidance I was receiving was directing me more toward their way of life instead of my heart’s desire and dreams. I finally asked them where they got their guidance and most of them received their guidance from God.

I began praying and meditating daily, which has developed into constant conscious contact with God. I the process of developing a relationship with God I had to fire God as my custodian, constantly cleaning up my life, and rehired God as my scout. It is this change of relationship that taught me to accept guidance. I pay attention to my life and live in the NOW. In living in the now I “hear/see” God. I feel God nudge me if I don’t try to “make” my life and merely “let” it. If you want to find the source of perfect guidance remember…

Wholeness

What degree of wholeness are you? Wholeness, according to Dictionary.com, has many meanings. The definition I have chosen is pertaining to all aspects of human nature, especially one’s physical, intellectual and spiritual development. When I began my current journey I was beyond broken, I was shattered. I was buried in denial and had settled into believing I was right and the world was wrong. To protect my fragile ego, I would fight any opinion that didn’t conform to the imaginary world I lived in.

As I begin to see and understand my character defects I realize how different we all are and how much we are also so much alike. I also realize we are each already whole lacking understanding. We are all made in God’s image and likeness, yet resemble different aspects of God. The Bible says we should not judge and yet we do. It is our judgment and not each other that is flawed. I continue to evaluate my thinking process and all the people who have been a part of its manufacture looking for the judgment. When I remove my judgment, I see all mankind as perfect, which I am a part, improving my esteem.

Parents, schools, sundry religions; in fact all aspects of my material environment have been a part of creating my misunderstanding of my perfection and wholeness. Jesus said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” We all must find our truth and it must set us free or it is not our truth. I have found my truth and it has set me free. I also help others find their truth, although it may be dramatically different from mine. We must find our truth to become whole. If you want to know the best source of this truth remember…

Initiate

Everything in the physical universe initiated from something. In fact, if all the laws in the universe were to be combined into one law, it would be cause and effect. Initiate, according to Dictionary.com is to begin, set going, or originate. Everything, on a physical plane is initiated by something. And all that we know was initiated by God. God was not initiated. So all that God is, is, was and always will be. This is why all hope, faith and trust, must be in God and nothing else.

God is pure energy. God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent or present everywhere, knowing everything and having unlimited power. For us to achieve our ultimate potential we must open our minds to God’s mind. We must pray and meditate constantly in order to replace our selfish ideas and align our thoughts with God’s thoughts. We are made in God’s image and likeness, which is spirit. Spirit flows through us and empowers us. It is God’s power through us which allows us to initiate or manifest in our lives.

Everything on this planet that is not natural is made by man with materials we borrowed from either on or in the earth. The ideas were initiated by God through us. We can initiate negative by misusing God’s spirit but there is a price to be paid for this behavior, which we have all experienced. When my will is aligned with God I tend to initiate greatness and when I am not I initiate lack. The great thing about God is that although we may turn ourselves away from God, God never turns away from us. If you want to know what you need to initiate, remember…

Cognizance

As a metaphysical minister and a metaphysical psychologist I am constantly looking for cognizance. Most people lack cognizance at some level on at least a few areas of their lives. I can only know what I know and my Ego doesn’t want me to admit I am weak on any front. Cognizance, according to Dictionary.com is awareness, realization, knowledge, notice or perception. The more one knows about themselves the more chance one has in finding themselves. Many people have spent immeasurable amounts of time in molding us into who they thought we should be with little to no consideration to what we needed, in the name of love.

The reason my life was almost destroyed by alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, food or anything else is a lack of cognizance. Worldly things can temporarily distract me from my discomfort. Discomfort is my conscience trying to guide me toward a Godly existence. When I spend sufficient time in prayer and meditation I am spared discomfort. This freedom allows me to separate myself from my unhealthy habits until cognizance becomes a constant mental habit. Today although I may be tempted to recoil from daily negativity, I have faith that God will deliver me.

Today I am cognizant that God will not fail me. I am constantly taking personal inventory to insure I never disregard my illness. It seems that when I neglect my spiritual connection I quickly slide back into worldly habits, even when I think I have resolved them. I cannot resolve my human self; I can merely stay cognizant of them and pray for God’s help in conquering them. As stated on page 85 of the book Alcoholics Anonymous, “All I have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of my spiritual condition.”  If I am to stay cognizant of my life I must remember…

Alienation

I have had a few clients who were so loyal to something that they alienated themselves from what they needed to grow. Alienation according to Dictionary.com is the state or experience of being isolated from a group or an activity to which one should belong or in which on should be involved.  Alienation normally occurs from believing something we were taught even though it never really worked for the person who taught it to us. Our parents alienated us from who we are as they tried lovingly to guide us down a path they had been sold on.

I normally don’t surrender a belief until I have seen the folly in following its direction. I was brought up by a father who was 100% Swedish. He had already broken from most Swedish traditions. He was, although, saddled with many ideas that he never questioned through loyalty to certain factions of his belief system. Once I hit my bottom and was awarded a new life with new opportunities I have let go of all my loyalties. I can’t sail toward lands unknown, if I never untie myself from the dock.

Everything I have been taught has been necessary for segments of my life but I am not willing to alienate myself from my ultimate potential by staying unwittingly loyal to anything other than God. I tell my clients never wait at the airport for your ship to come in! I pray daily for intuition. As I was created in God’s image and likeness, I am blessed with both conscious and intuition. I must learn to follow my intuition if I am to learn to trust in it. I can afford to alienate myself from anything other than God, therefore I must be willing to start my day with a clean slate, remembering…

Rituals

Religions, for millenniums, have found rituals to be a vital part of their existence. According to Dictionary.com, rituals are an established or prescribed procedure or ceremony for a religious or other rites. Jesus asked us to not prescribe to rituals and yet the all the world religions dictate rites and services. When all the world finds God’s grace to be their only ritual, we shall find the answer to our earthly treasure. As we are made in God’s image and likeness, practicing love toward every life on the planet is the only practical ritual.

We should practice the ritual of love with each other. We should practice the ritual of love with all living things on our planet. We should practice the ritual of love with our environment. We should practice the ritual of love toward God with every breath we take. I have been practicing constant, conscious contact with God. Although I have come up short of the love I am capable of, I just realize my human condition and return to the task at hand. Love is the ritual of discipline.

The gold, statues, intricate building, ceremonies and rites do not impress God. All God wants is our constant love and admiration. These rituals are performed around the world in almost every religion from the oldest to the youngest, from the richest to the poorest, from every corner of the planet. Rituals are a superstitious rite and as long as society continues to believe they are pleasing God with this waste of time the world will have to find the answer to its problems on its own. If you want to find a ritual that works for you remember…

Respond

Do you react or do you respond? According to Dictionary.com react is to act in response to an agent or influence, while respond is to react favorably. When I react I am normally doing so based on information acquired from past experiences, which may or may not be relevant.  When I respond I am normally doing so based on current information lacking past judgement. When I react I am normally living from my human nature and when I am responding I am normally living in my spiritual nature.

I would love to be able to live in the now constantly and learn to allow everything to be a new experience. When I am in learn mode I am open to anything and when I think I know I tend to react and not respond. I think the reason my Ego always thinks it knows is because it wants me to believe it is God. The funny thing is that when I live from my spiritual nature, knowing requires no argument. Reacting almost always promotes argument and responding is normally a statement based more in neutrality.

If I feel agitated it would be best to hold my tongue, although it is hard as my Ego wants to prove I am right. God owns the universe and doesn’t need to convince anyone of anything. When I can respond spiritually I need not say anything; in fact, I can usually humbly refrain from any further conversation. Any conversation I have while reacting is usually a conversation I will need to apologize for. I have learned to apologize but it is not a favorite pastime of mine so I continue to be better at responding. If you want to know where you can improve on your communication skills remember…
