What is the best choice?
Posted by reverendjiam
We have three choices in life – to learn everything by ourselves or to learn everything by the experience of others, or a mixture (balance) of the two. Many people on the physical plane are into learning everything by themselves through there own experience. Unfortunately this is a painful experience, especially things like losing fingers, bankruptcy, marriage break-ups etc. These are things that are best studied in other people with the aim of avoiding them ourselves!
Then there are Good things to experience. Most people on the physical plane don’t seem to really want to experience the good things in life – things like being wealthy, happy, successful, peaceful and healthy (not in that order.) In these fields people tend to ignore the experiencing and go for second hand study of the experiences. Why is this? Because these five factors take work to achieve, but more than that they require us to move out of the physical into the metaphysical and Spiritual worlds. And for most people that is asking too much! Personally i believe that we should Practice the positive things in life and try to achieve them and study the negative things in life and try to avoid them! Practice the Positive and avoid the Negative! As the song says. “you’ve got to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative!” So that is the balance we should aim for!
I’ll tell you a secret: to achieve big things in life we need to move off the physical plane up into the metaphysical and spiritual planes. Why is this? Because of the laws. On the physical plane the laws consist of man’s rules and regulations. On the metaphysical plane (the brain’s plane) the laws consist of principles. On the Spiritual plane the laws consist of the higher laws of the universe – Providence, Grace and Justice. The difference between the levels is in the energy and numbers of laws.
On the physical level the numbers of laws is extremely large. And the energy on the physical level is extremely low – just 1. On the metaphysical level the numbers of laws (principles) in probably less than 500. And the energy level is 10. On the spiritual level the number of laws (higher laws) is less than 20 with the three “biggies,” all having energy levels of 100+! So the higher you go, the less the number of laws and the higher the energy levels. Which means each following level gets easier and easier to work! The main thing that stops people progressing is their “glass ceilings”. Glass ceilings are not actually ceiling at all, but barriers (perfect mirrors) that reflect their own experiences back at them. Until we can break through these barriers we cannot even see the the different levels. We actually have to experience the different levels for them to take a hold in our lives.
The physical levels beliefs systems consist of agnostic, atheist, religion and science. The metaphysical plane consists of science, principles and philosophy. The spiritual level consists of Spirituality, science, detachment and actions.
physical = agnostic, atheist, religion and science.
metaphysical = science, principles and philosophy.
spiritual = Spirituality, science, detachment and actions
If you imagine the above layout to be an ocean then the physical plane represents the sea surface – lots of waves, storms and very little life. Man lives his life in a small boat on the ocean surface – a very rough life indeed!
The metaphysical represents the sea under the surface, perhaps down to 1,000 metres when the ocean becomes pitch black. Here the sea teams with life and currents. Life and death are a daily part of events. But below the 1,000 metres mark the sea changes again with the pressure increasing (although in spiritual terms it is the opposite – the pressure actually decreases in the spiritual plane) the currents are a lot slower and life is far more rare at this depth.
In spiritual terms the depths of the ocean are the Beingness of spirituality. The pressure of the ocean can be compared to the energy level of 100+. The deeper into the ocean we dive the greater the pressure (energy level) becomes! It’s a pretty crude analogy, but a true one that can be expanded on with meditation, where you can change the rules of the ocean to reflect the rules of spirituality.
Personally I’d say the best choice by far is the spiritual choice. From this level you can look down and see the other levels exposed for what they are – levels of life we have to live but not get stuck in (Be detached from). Just as deep see fish rise to the surface at night time, so too can we descend to the physical and metaphysical planes when we really have too – but we don’t spend the majority of our lives there! We just do what we have to do without becoming attached to the level! I hope this is clear to you.
