Move towards the light of Love, Peace, Success and Prosperity (in that order) to find true happiness in life!
We all seek security. Know that security is made up of three factors – Continuity, Stability and Growth! Continuity is the Spiritual factor, Stability is the metaphysical factor and growth is the Physical factor. To be secure we Must have all Three! Any two without the other one leads to insecurity.
I want you to imagine that life is a skipping rope. A skipping rope has the three factors of life within it. Growth is represented by pulling the rope tight an inclining it from leftt to right so it looks like a road going up a hill. Stability is represented by the opposite – fluctuations. If we grab the rope at both ends and wiggle it it looks like waves coming in from the sea. These waves have a high point and a low point. if the waves are tiny it is a calm day. if the waves are big it is a rough day. Where the waves bottom out it is often below zero. Zero is the tipping point for crisis in our lives. So is we are not growing and have big fluctuations we will be dipping in and out of crisis all the rime. If we do have growth then eventually even our lowest points will grow above the crisis point and we will have a form of stability called fluctuations.
The real danger is in lack of continuity. Lack of continuity is basically a break in the skipping rope! A broken skipping rope can’t be played with and has to be knotted together to continue. The lack of continuity is the worse of all crisis’ because most of the rope drops to the ground (zero).
So the formula for success (security) lays in getting continuity, stability and growth going – in that order! Once you have continuity you can focus on the stability. Once you have continuity and stability you can focus on growth and then everything comes together!
Spiritual law works on Continuity. I remember when I first started out I was on a really tight budget. I started “paying myself first” and Gifting to others in token sums (invoking the token)of 10 cents (to others) and 50 cents(to myself) Then one Tuesday I was feeling really grouchy/irritated – nothing seemed to be going right, my returns from gifting had dried up and then I realised that I hadn’t hadn’t paid myself first, nor paid others in the form of gifting, the previous week. So all the returns had stopped. I made a commitment right then and there to return to gifting to myself and others on the coming Thursday (pay day) and all the returns opened up and started coming in again! I didn’t even have to do the giftings to get the past returns, simply commit back to them! This is the importance of the the two forms of gifting in the spiritual world! And the importance of commitment!
Now I talked about two forms of gifting. What are these two forms? Well they are simply gifting to yourself first and gifting to others secondly. What is gifting to yourself? Paying yourself the first portion of all incomes. I’ll repeat that. The first form of gifting is “Paying yourself the first portion of all incomes (including goods and services)”. Your payments to yourself are then accumulated and put into a family bank (not a family trust – a family trust is metaphysical, not spiritual). The money in the family bank is repeatedly used, rotated around to build and grow. Once it reaches a certain point it becomes self-feeding and produces incomes far beyond the input into it. It literally becomes a money, goods and service tree for yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren down through the generations.That is why it is important to start with the continuity first. Starting here is like putting a spring on the skipping rope so it does wear out and break! It is also the equivelent of “starting at the top and working down”
If you start the two giftings at the same time them you have started on the stability too! Giftings are always returned to you multiplied, so from the returns your gift 10% to yourself and another 10% to giftings to others and you still have 80% left to increase your lifestyle! So that is 10%, 10% and 80%, basically the Pereto Principle (the 20/80 rule) applied to your own life!
Once these two are going THEN you can start applying growth to you life! When you reach a certain stage you will become permanetly empowered. Empowered means you get external energy (spiritual, metaphysical and physical) applied to your life. Em is a prefix that means “from without” – literally power added to us from outside of ourselves, but the source of the initial spark must come from within – like striking a match to light a candle, to see the light-switch on the wall, to open the curtains and let the sunshine in! The candle, the electric lights and the sun are all forms of more powerful empowerment!
Why is gifting so important spiritually? Because that is the way spiritual law works – “As you sow, so shall you reap multiplied – thirty, fifty and 100 fold!” But to sow we have to plant. To plant we have to do it right. No good just scattering seed on the gravel banks of the river, on on the sandy desert surface. The ground has to be prepared. And the spiritual sowing is companion planting – two types of seed at once that synergise with each other to give a far greater return. Gifts always have to be offered and accepted. If they are not offered and accepted they simply become losses on your part. So if you say, ” here have this” it is not a gift, it is a loss on your part and a gain of the receivers part – a typical physical win/lose situation. But if you offer the gift and it is accepted it becomes a win/win situation because they have won by getting something gifted to them and you have won by the getting a return (as you sow, so shall you reap!) You don’t have to worry about your returns from them (the receiver) because it will be returned to you from somewhere else! If they try and return it to you straight away, it’s probably because they are into physical trading and want to “pay you back”. With people like this, don’t offer them a second gift unless it is done anonymously.
I did this with a friend a long time ago. I had been trying to tell them about the power of gifting, but she was into trading, So one time I dropped a gift off to her through her letter box, unsigned, anonymous. She phoned me up that night and told me the good news of receiving the gift and then accused me of giving it to her. Uh-oh, I thought, here goes a gift being demoted into a trade. So i denied giving it to her and cast out to God to help me. No sooner was the prayer/request made than there was a knock on the door at her place and she hung up the phone to answer the door. About a minute later she returned to the phone and said, “My apologies, it wasn’t you. That was the lady upstairs and she saw a man in a yellow jacket get out of a car and put in into my letterbox!” At that stage I didn’t even have a car, so that was my gift/return protected. But then she had a problem; she had received money and couldn’t pay it pack to the gifter. So after a couple of weeks she passed it forward, she made a gift to someone else. From that I was able to get her to ask for confirmation of the return of the gift, which she received and saw the power of gifting for the first time, and from that point on she was converted to gifting! So she moved up from the physical level (of trading) to the metaphysical level if gifting to others. Sadly, however, she never made the spiritual transition to gifting to her self first!
So to recap. the spiritual level of gifting is gifting to yourself first, the metaphysical level of gifting is gifting to others and the physical level is that of trading with others (no gifting at all).
Spiritual Gifting to self
Metaphysical Gifting to others
Physical Trading with others
Physical represents growth, metaphysical represents stability and Spiritual represents continuity. On the spiritual level continuity is far more important than amounts which is why we can start of with miniscule amounts of effort but still reap huge amounts – “invoking the token” One such invoking of the token has come down in history to us through the teaching of Jesus. It is the “widows mite” the widows token. Jesus was pointing out what she was doing and showing how, spiritually, it had far more power than the giving of mere excesses by the rich men (that they had to point out by (literally) “blowing their own trumpets.”) What made the gift so powerful was the commitment of the poor widow as opposed to the flaunting of the rich men. Commit, commit, commit is the spiritual afformation!
So if you want security then start at the top and start paying yourself the first portion of all your incomes. What example do we have spiritually to follow? Why God of course. God loves Himself first (agape love), then man. So He pays Himself first and then others (us) secondly. We are made in the image of God, so we always have to love ourselves first and then others! “As above, so below”
Always start at the top and work down, much like a cloud raining down on the land (there is no effort on the part of the rain, it falls under the influence of gravity!)
I hope this is of help to you,
Mentors Wanted! I am ready for my task in this world and am ready to expand my consciousness to achieve my task. To do this i need mentors to help me.
Did you know that consistency is a spiritual attribute? Not many people recognise this fact but once you’ve seen it you’ll see it everywhere. God is consistent within each of the three planes and within all of them. God consistently sends us “manifestations” (Spiritual Masters) about every 500 to 1,000 years. Every manifestation brings with him a new set of social laws and takes us to a higher level of Love. So the Love is always consistent, only the social rules change to fit the age the people live in. Each new set of rules unites a bigger portion of the population. We live in an new age where the whole world is going to be united into one national – “the earth is but one country, mankind it’s citizens“.
One thing that God consistently teaches is that we are here for one lifetime only. Only one manifestation teaches about reincarnation and that is Krishna. “Why does Krishna teach about reincarnation and none of the other messengers do?” I used to wonder. Then one day I was told to read the Hindu writings and as I read it became clear to me that the reincarnation that Krishns talks about is a totally different kind from the ones that reincarnationists talk about. Reincarnationists talk about leaving the body at the end of life and being reborn back to earth to live life over and over again.This effectively removes god from the picture so they “never” have to face a reckoning.
God says we are born onto earth to learn lessons and we only need 70 odd years to achieve that and once we die we lose our free-will forever and enter the next world at the stage we progressed to in this life. I’ll repeat that phrase, “we enter the next world at the stage we progressed to in this life.” If we end up far from God at the point of death then that is where we enter the next world. The feeling we get when we get there and recognise that in 70 short years we could have been far, far closer to God than we are is what is called “hell” Because there is no way we can undo that station in the next world. What we could have achieved in this world in 70 years may take a million years in the next world because we can’t promote ourselves any closer to god in the next world, only in this one. The feeling of “heaven” is when we get to the next world and realise that we have done as much as we can to get close to God and there is nothing more we could have done to move closer – that is heaven. Heaven and hell are states of beingness, not places of existence. These states of Beingness are also achieveable in this world. To reach hell simply do nothing! To reach heaven we have to always seek out the truth – everyday of our lives!
So there is no coming back to this earth to live your life again! So what sort of reincarnation is Krishna talking about. Know that we sleep one third of out lifetimes. Why is that? Because in that third we are actually in the next world. So we spend two thirds of our life in this world and one third in the spiritual world. When we awaken we are cast out of the spiritual world into this one. This is called an incarnation at the point to conception in the womb and a re-incarnation every time there after. And it happens every 24 hours, every day, not at the end of our earthly living! So the teachings of Krishna are consistent with the teaching of all the other manifestations! (Like Jesus, Muhamed, Budha, Zoroaster, Moses etc)
mankind is always looking for differences, but spiritual people are always looking for consistencies, because God is One, Man is one and all the Manifestations agree. If all things are involved in all things, how can they be inconsistent (not different, inconsistent)
An apple and a walnut may be different but they are both manifestations of trees, which is the bigger consistency. So things can be different and consistent.
All the laws of the universe have different manifestations on the different levels but are always the same law! So the law of attraction states “opposites attract” on the physical level. On the metaphysical level the same law states that “like attracts like” – the complete oposite to the physical level, Yet it is consistent on each of these levels. On the Spiritual level the law of attraction states “Love attracts all except the human heart that chooses to turn away” because we have free will to turn towards Love or to turn away from it, in this world (only).
So the spiritual person works on Consistency, stability and Growth to achieve a divine civilisation (heaven), the metaphysical person works on growth, and stability whilst the physical person works only on growth. Can you see the difference in the states? Only the top spiritual state combines to give security. And that is the underlying urge of every man, woman and child on earth!
Hhhmmmmmmmm, I’ve been mulling things over for a few days and I’ve come to the conclusion that the vast majority of mankind is stupid. not because we were born stupid but because we were trained to be stupid as children and have not yet changed our schooling. “when i was a child I thought like a child, acted like a child …. and now i am an adult i do exactly the same thing I did as a child!” Why? BecauseI have never become self- determining. That is what Christ wants us to do – to become self-determining. To become self determining we must look at all our thoughts and put them to a test – is this a true thought that will make my life better or is this a false thought that will make my life worse? If it is a good thought then we confirm it and keep it. If it is a bad thought then we throw it out and replace it with a stronger good (truthful) thought. We can’t just throw a negative thought out without replacing it with a positive thought. Jesus spoke about an evil spirit going for a walk and coming back to find 17 had taken it’s place. Every negative thought leaves an empty spot that has to be filled by something good, otherwise it is going to be filled by another negative (nature abhors a vacuum and like attracts like!)
Every hateful thought has to be replaced by a stronger thought of Peace. Remember that hateful thoughts are like a dark room. Anyone can walk into a dark room and strike a match that will emanate light to every corner of the room. But no-one can walk into a light room and strike a dark match that will emanate darkness into every corner. The only way to make a room dark is to close all the doors and shut all the curtains. If you are in that dark room you have to strike a match that will show you where there is a candle you can light. The lit candle will in turn show you where the light switch is, then, after switching the lights on, you can see where the curtains and doors are, so you can open them to admit the sunlight! (step by easy step, each one being stronger than the last step)
The same goes with world Peace. The world is in darkness and the only match we can light is ourselves. Once that is lit we can light the candle of family and friends. Once they are lit they will light other candles and more and more illumination will spread through out the world, causing the rats of darkness to scurry back down into the earth and lighting up the whole planet. That is why the saying is “Think global, act local!” We cannot change the world but we can change ourselves. And once we have changed ourselves we will be able to change at least one person in our lifetime, probably two (or even more)! And each of those two will be able to change another two and so on and so forth – the sequence of numbers goes 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 etc. After ten steps there will be 1,024 people thinking and acting on Peace. Not much you may think, but another ten steps makes it over a million (1,048,576). Yet another ten steps equals over a billion people thinking of Peace!(1,073,742,824). It is only another 3 steps to include every man, woman and child in the world!
Have you heard of the theory of the 100th monkey? Apparently scientists starting feeding some monkeys sweet potatoes on an island to see what they would do. The potatoes were just dropped on the ground and got covered in dirt. One of the young monkeys started washing it’s potatoes and it in turn was copied by other young monkeys. The young monkeys then taught the older monkeys to wash their potatoes too and before you know it whole island’s monkeys were washing their potatoes as well.
So the scientists went to another island that had no communication with the first and dropped the potatoes there. They were amazed to see the monkeys immediately wash their potatoes! Somehow the act of washing had become part of the monkey consciousness (we are all connected). Since then research has shown that about 4% of any population needs to be doing an action in unison for it to become an active part of the consciousness. So the sequence goes 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 80%! There is a huge leap forward once that critical percentage is reached.
So what is the point of all this babbling? Only that world Peace is in your hands, brothers and sisters! In your hands. Change your thinking to that of Peace and light a match in your heart that will set aflame the matches of other hearts and start a chain reaction of “pass it forwards” until the world is ablaze with the light of Peace!
Move towards the light of Love, Peace, Success and Prosperity (in that order) to find true happiness in life!
My, what a silly title, there are seven “nots” in there! How can the brain make any sense of that. I know, lets remove a few “nots” – how about three? So now it reads, “I am not, not, not, not going to smoke!” Nope, no better! Well, let’s remove another three! Now it reads, “I am not going to smoke!” There that makes sense doesn’t it? (“no, I don’t understand it it at all, there are still two negatives in it . And i don’t understand double negatives. So I’ll get rid of one of them and that will be my goals, So now it reads, “I am going to smoke!”) Who is that speaking? “It’s me, the subconscious! Glad to meet you at last!” ?
So every time I set a double negative goal you remove one of the negatives and work towards that? “yes, well I speak a similar, but different, language from you and it gets lost in the translation!”
So how do I set goals that we both can achieve? “By using only single positives!” What do you mean by that? “well instead of setting the goal to Lose Weight, which is a double negative (the excess weight is seen by us as a negative) set the goal to BE SLIM, which is a single positive. Then we are both working on the same goal and we will succeed!”
Of course, because a house disunited will always lose! “There you go again, talking in double negatives! Say it so I can understand it!” Well a house united will always win? “Yes, that’s it, I easily understand that!”
So you have a sort of double negative dyslexia Mr subconscious? “Yes, now that you put it that way, I suppose I do. I also work in a different medium from you!” What do you mean by that? “Well you work in air and I work in water! The two of us together (the conscious and the subconscious) are like an iceberg. (90% of you (me) quietely sits in the water and 10% floats above the surface. You think that because you are above the surface, you are in control of everything. But you are not in control of the oceans currents at the moment, because you aren’t asking, or telling, the currents where to flow.” What do you mean by that? “Don’t you remember – “as you speak out of your mouth so it shall be!” Every time you think a thought and speak it goes out your mouth, into your ear and then comes to me. Then, I have to try to sort out the gobbedlygook double-speak out and try and make sense of that!”
“Don’t you know that I have two departments that have to be saying the same thing, to get anywhere? I have the speaking department and the seeing department, the sound and the light! Every time you speak it comes in through the ear and that has to be sorted, but also, every time you write or see something, well that has to be sorted too! When both departments say the same thing, then that is what I send out into the universe (the super-conscious) and that goes to God and that is what you attract!” Gosh, I didn’t know that Mr Subconscious, we better get something sorted out.
So we have spoken words that act like goals and written words and vision that also act like goals? “EXACTLY, now you’ve got it! HOORAY!”
Wow that is profound. So, how am I going to sort this problem out? It’s a huge one! “Exactly the same way you’d eat an elephant!” What, I can’t eat an elephant! “Not all at once, you can’t, but you can if you eat it one bite at a time! Why do you always have to be so impatient?” You’re right, and I’m sorry.
I can see I’m going to have to consult with you about what to say and write as goals. “Not just me, find experts who have already achieved what you want to do and copy them – that will save you years and years!” How can I tell who is an expert? “You will “know them by their deeds! A good tree can’t give bad fruit and a good tree can’t bear bad fruit” That;s right – wait a minute, how did you know that? “Your parents taught me when you were a child and you confirmed it as an adult by reading it over again, thinking about it and accepting it as a truth. So it has become a law (a rod) which I consult when trying to decipher your babble!” Ah, I see!
So where’s a good place to start learning? “As I said, start where you’re at and extend the search outwards. Who should always be the first port of call?” I don’t know! “God of course, silly! God should always be our first port of call when we need knowledge because He is the source of All Knowledge and has also given us the laws of Providence that say, “everything you need will be given to you“. And you need knowledge – and knowledge is a necessity ( a need) so ask God for the knowledge, in Good and Godly circumstances, and it will be given to you!”
Hey, wait a minute, why do I have to ask for knowledge in Good and Godly circumstances? “Because if you don’t you will still get the knowledge, but it may well be in negative circumstances like injuries or losses! My goodness, you are an early learner at this language thing! LOL!”
Okay, so I have to always ask God first for the knowledge. How will I know he has replied? “Ask him for a sign, a confirmation. You are allowed as many confirmations as you want until the knowledge makes the long journey of 350 millimetres (14 inches) from the head to the heart. This is when the knowledge becomes OURs and when the saying, “you will KNOW the truth and the truth will set you free!” becomes our reality!”
“Think back to when you were a child. When you were learning to walk did your Dad beat you with a four by two every time you fell over in trying? No, he picked you up, wiped away your tears and encouraged you to try again! And you knew it could be done because everyone around you was walking! So it is with God today, he is still your father, a loving, kind and compassionate dad. And he still will pick you up when you fall. But most of the people around you aren’t walking on their own two feet. Many are still crawling and some are walking as a three legged couple (that’s called co-dependency) but very few are walking independently with God.
Gosh you explain it well Mr Subconscious! “I always do when I have a listening ear!”
“and don’t go listening to those ” religious experts” most of their knowledge is 2,000 years old and God has moved on 734, 745 times (days) since then. Even Islam is 1,300 years old which is 474,500 days old. The spiritual teaching of these Two messengers still holds true, but their social laws have been replaced. Each day is like a lifetime to us and God’s revelation is continuous – (“The moving pen, having writ, moves on“) it doesn’t come in enormous blobs the way religion teaches and then stop! God reveals new revelations, new sets of laws every 700 to 1,000 years, and then refines it continuously every day thereafter – through His servants!
Look at the age we live in now. We have electricity, cars, iron boats, iron flying machines!, self propelling vehicles (cars etc) telephones, televisions, computers and the list of miracles goes on and on! Do you think man invented all these things? Of course not, God invents all good things and let man take the credit for them. By himself, man can only make tools of mass destruction! As i have always said, “In the beginning God wanted light, so he created the sun! In this new age he wanted electric light, so He created Edison (Edi-sun)!”
Instead of approaching religion, approach God directly. This is called the spiritual path! God loves you and listens to every word we say. It’s just that we don’t often speak directly too Him, so how are we ever going to hear Him speaking back to us? “
Wow, you’ve blown my mind Mr Subconscious. I thought the answer would be a simple one line wonder, but now I see it as a whole life time of expansion! “Now you’ve got it! We have to live the journey, not just aim at the end or pretend it’s never going to happen. “Be here now!” All we take with us is our deeds and our experiences. May as well make our deeds and experiences good ones!”
So let’s make that our major goal right now! I’ll go and get a pen and paper and I’ll write it down so we have both the affirmation and the written goals saying the same thing!
“At last we have unity!” And with unity we have power given to us (Em-powerment; em means “from without”). You see, life is simple. But simple doesn’t always mean easy. To make life easy we have to cut it up into bite sized chunks. Then life becomes simple AND easy!
Amen, Amen, Amen,
P.S. if you want knowledge come and join the Wholistic Peace and Prosperity family.
P.P.S. Its really simple, and easy to do over time (and if you don’t do it, the time will pass anyway, you’ll only be older and no further ahead!)
Today, 4th July, is my 21st re-birthday, the day on which i was reborn as a master and given a new name to mark it. I feel great today as I feel a long period of consolidation has passed and suddenly (after 21 years) I’ll become an “overnight success!” Yeehaaa!
I am seeing more and more that masters are born before their time to serve as they have to wait for the world to change so they can get a hearing ear! The world of today is a totally difference place from the world into which I was reborn. There were very few home computers in those days and windows 3.1 hadn’t been released yet. I remember buying my first computer for $2,000 and it had DOS and a 45 megabyte hard drive! We later compressed the herd drive and got it up to 75 megabytes! We thought we were the kings of the world. And then along came windows 3.1 and I had to buy a bigger computer (about 300 megabytes I think) at another $2,000! and so it progressed ever onwards and upwards (and outwards!). Out of all the windows versions there have only been 4 that really work well – 3.1, 95, 98 and XP. Many of the rest were absolute dogs! Woof, woof!
Why are we (the human race) addicted to change for the sake of change. This is simply called Fashion. There are many things in life that don’t need changing or can be done far simpler and cheaper. Many years ago I decided to try out hydroponic gardening. So I read many books and sought out lots of advice about gear etc. I kept on being told that I would definitly need two things 1) a pump to lift the water and 2) a metering device to replace the plant food. these two items cost $3,000 all together. yet i was only building an 18 square metre greenhouse! Then I found out the a years supply of food would only cost $28! Why buy a device for $1,500 to save money on $28 worth of food? Then It struck me what to do. Simply build the hydroponic piping as normal and then us two buckets for the containers. Put a hole in one bucket so it drips out over 24 hours and use the other as a collector at the bottom. Come into the greenhouse in the morning and empty the bottom bucket into the top one – Voila, problem solved, reducing costs by $3,000! And once a week I would throw the used nutrients onto the lawn and grow a wonderful lawn to boot!If it aint broke, don’t fix it! By the way the strawberries I grew were absolutely delicious!
So happy rebirthday J’iam and another 23 to come!
