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…

Being

Are you a human being or a human doing? Do you know enough about yourself to be comfortable with you? Can you just be? Being according to Dictionary.com is the fact of existing, conscious; moral existence; substance of nature.  Many of us have been brought up with so much negative browbeating that we spend our days contemplating what we need to do instead of learning to be who we are. I have done nearly three hundred personal inventories and most of what I have examined has been thoughts, feelings and behaviors not kindred to who I am.

I know today what my personality is according to dozens of personality assessments. According to the Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test I am an ENTP; Extravert (59%) (over introversion); Intuitive (44%) (over sensing); Thinking (50%) (over Feeling); Perceiving (6%) (over judging). You can test yourself at http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality. Some personality assessments have pages of science that provides us with our nature. Being is not what we have been taught to be, it is what we were meant to be. Our DNA is who we are, it is our being.

Being is a rich form of living. It comes with self-confidence, self-acceptance and incredible freedom to be without the constant need for acceptance. When you know who you are you merely need to be that and try to be the best you can be. When you are basing who you need to be on who you were meant to be you can’t help but be successful. You are you! You are not who others think you should be. You can’t build a skyscraper on a residential foundation. You will never meet your potential if you never take the time to find your being. The best way to start being is through remembering…

Allegiance

Are you allegiant? Allegiance, according to Dictionary.com is the loyalty or devotion of a citizen to his or her government or of a subject to his or her sovereign, or devotion to some person, group, cause, etc. Are you fully devoted to this country? Although you may not agree with the past or current leadership are you still devoted to a country that allows diversity? This country has been bouncing from extremes since it’s inception. If we don’t keep our allegiance to the United States primary, allegiance to anything else is of no value. Freedom must first be developed and solidified before allegiance to lesser causes can be accessed.

I am first allegiant to God and all that God has blessed me with including my wife and family. Secondly I am allegiant to my country for which I have been so blessed. With the freedom I have been given as a citizen of The United States I have true opportunity many people around the world do not have. The more I take time to count my blessings, the more allegiance I profess to my country. I love the United States. I may not love what happens in this country but I know that if I stand for what is right eventually God will intervene and provide what is best and right for us all.

We all have an opinion! If we did not live in a free country we would not be able to share our opinion without fallout. I am free to make mistakes and in the process I learn what I need to learn and my life continues to unfold. I served in the United States Air Force and the Montana Army National Guard. I have been on boards and committees. I have served at many levels according the needs and talents I could provide. Allegiance is not proven till service is rendered. As a recovering addict, I found it easy to talk and service not so easy. If you want to know if you are truly allegiant remember…

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…
