Satan, according to the Oxford dictionary, actually means wicked. So,“Get thee behind me satan!” actually means, “Get thee behind me wicked (thought)!”
The word wicked has many meaning, but they all lead to a common representation. Wicked means to twist (the truth) to make trouble, to be hurtful by degeneracy, vicious, intending to give pain. So definitely not well intended! Note the word vicious. Vicious is the opposite of Virtuous – we can be in a vicious cycle (which nearly everyone has experienced) or a Virtuous cycle (which far fewer experience a virtuous cycle because it involves commitment!) If we translate “Get thee behind me satan” into modern English we can use it very easily to repel evil thoughts from others and from our our mind. I simply say, “This is not my though and I refuse to accept it!”
You see all thoughts, be they good or evil, are thrown at us by the universe and we have to judge them ourselves, to either accept them as our own or to reject them. If we just let everything into our mind we can receive thoughts from the highest level (God, Pure Love) or the lowest level of evil.
There is a multiple motivational saying JIJO, QIQO, which means
Junk In Junk Out
Quality In Quality Out
We are all gardeners in this life and we are asked to grow good foods and crops. This takes commitment and effort, but you’ll never see a gardener or farmer complaining as reaping time!
It takes absolutely no effort to sow thistles – they sow themselves. But come reaping time you’ll hear people complaining long and loud that the thistles hate them. In fact the thistles don’t hate us. They don’t even know we exist! Nor do our crops love us. Again, they don’t even know we exist!
But we know they exist and the pleasure or pain they give us is the direct result of the actions we have taken previously! This is covered by the Law of Sowing and Reaping (also known as the Law of Karma).
To help us get rid of old inner thoughts I have written a book called “Mind Gardens” (ISBN. 0-473-02826-3) which I offer to you in PDF form. Simply email me asking for a copy and I will gift it to you obligation free. No advertising or add on paid offers – it is a gift from me to you and my gain is that it adds to my virtuous cycle!
To cleanse our minds of past negative thoughts is the first step to spiritual cleanliness. Once our inner mind is clean we put a watchman at the gate who takes care of 99% of thoughts entering our mind. The 1% he can’t handle it is referred to us. This means that our mind power is no longer spent “fighting fires” and we can spend the free time creating “Virtuous Cycles.”
We use the virtuous cycles to create a divine civilisation on earth, as always beginning with ourselves – “as within so without.”
As children (aged 0 to 7 years) we absorb everything we hear without discrimination (judging) and, if we are lucky, we grow up with only pure thoughts in our mind. But very few are so lucky.
Jesus said that as adults we must cleanse our minds of the negative thoughts implanted by others (Parents, friends, teachers enemies, media etc.) to give us a clean foundation of which to build our spiritual adult selves! “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a Man, I put away childish things.” This means that we move from being controlled by others to controlling ourselves!
How can we build a lasting house whose foundations are sand (negative thoughts which lead to negative actions)? We can’t! So we have to build a concrete base for our internal Spiritual Kingdom of Love. Usually this involves being “Reborn.” That is to say it involves turning our own internal radio receiver to Love, away from negative thoughts of evil (“man left to his own devices is inclined towards evil”.
Again, another definition, this time from wikipedia;
The terms known as virtuous cycle and vicious cycle refer to complex chains of events which reinforce themselves through a feedback loop. A virtuous circle has favourable results, while a vicious circle has detrimental results.
Both circles are complexes of events with no tendency towards equilibrium(at least in the short run). Both systems of events have feedback loops in which each repeat of the cycle reinforces the previous one (positive/negative). These cycles will continue in the direction of their momentum until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle. End of quote.
Let’s look at how the cycles start. Every vicious cycle starts very easily by us simply doing nothing! It takes no effort to fall into a deep hole and a lot of effort to get out of that hole! It takes no effort to leave our land to sow itself to thistles and lots of weeds. These pests simply germinate on the wind!
This is why we are asked to cleanse our mind of childish (self-destructive) thoughts and replace them with Manly (Self-building) thoughts. Self building thoughts don’t just happen – they have to be committed too and acted upon! Commitment is possibly the least favoured word of this New Age! Lol!
Building a virtuous cycle means putting a fence up around the hole, or filling it in, and then building foundations for a new Multi-storied house! Again, building the foundations is the longest and hardest part! Everything that is easy to do (falling into a hole) becomes harder and harder to live with. Everything that is hard to do (building foundations) becomes easier and easier to live with!
And so we have a choice of simply doing nothing with our lives and falling into continuous crisis (vicious cycles.) Or doing something with our lives and building a Divine Civilisation (this is the second high Goal in everyone’s life, with the first goal being connection to God/Love!)
Life is not complicated. It is actually very simple. But sorting the simple out of the blizzard of “facts” in this world is not an easy process. Never, ever confuse Simple with easy!
But once we find the simplicities of Life and start to build them, life does become easier and easier over time!
Thank you, Lord!

We have two choices in life – Win/Lose or Win/Win. We can choose either one – of our own free will, although we are born into the win/lose situation of the physical world!
To choose the Win/Win situation we have to transform ourselves from the physical to the spiritual plane. How do we do this? We can’t – by ourselves! It is impossible for man to transform himself from the win/lose to the Win/Win situation because it is not up to man to make this transformation! Only LOVE can do this! So how do we get to transform? We have to ask to be transformed! So it’s not really hard – except for stubborn, ignorant, know-it-all people! And I do believe i was one of those before I got so down that i had nothing to lose by asking!
So if you are down, down, down to the point of self destruction and want a change in your life, you are reading the right article! All you have to do is ask out aloud for a meeting with Love (I Am – the knowable essence of God). This will be heard even if you say it in a whisper in a raging storm! The universe is all ears and is waiting for you to ask!
You see the connection with Love is 100% voluntary of our part – even though it is our living destiny. We have free will so that the choice is 100% voluntary! We can turn towards Love or turn away from Love – the choice is entirely ours!
So let’s say you have asked and been answered (all askings will be answered!) You change your position in the world by entering the spiritual realm. The main difference is the Win/Win situation instead of the win/lose situation. Karma becomes the spiritual persons friend because we are taught how to use it to advantage instead of just suffering from it in the physical world. In the spiritual world there is a way to stop the negative returns of the law of sowing and reaping that doesn’t exist in the physical world – forgiveness!
The moment we are “Reborn” (connected to Love) we are forgiven all past negative karma! And from that point on we can bring ourselves to account each day and use the power of self-forgiveness to wipe karmic debt from our lives!
An example of how Win/Win works in the spiritual world. We’ll use a dollar coin as an example. In the physical world everything is based on trading or losing (giving it away or having it taken from us). So if a man gives you a dollar in the physical world he is probably trying to put you into a position of debt – “you owe me!”
In the spiritual world everything is based on GIFTING, so instead of saying, “Here, have this $1” we say, “please accept this gift from me” and wait for their reply. If they say, “no” then we put the $1 back in our pocket and look for someone else who will accept our gift. If they say, “yes” then we give them the gift in the knowledge that we both have won! How? By the law of sowing and reaping – ” As you sow (gift), so you shall reap multiplied.” Multiplied, of course, means it will be retuurned to you in a bigger quantity that you gifted! So gifting is like a form of spiritual banking! The more(times) you gift the greater will be your returns. And what is the return rate? “30, 50 and 100 fold“. There are complicated mathematics at work here but basically it means that for every $1 you gift (in either money, goods or services) you will be returned a minimum of $1.20, $2 or $5! And more as time progresses and the return system compounds!
The law of sowing and reaping promises that “they who have(the use of the higher laws) shall be given more(Win/Win) whilst they that have not shall be taken away from(win/lose or lose/lose!)” If you are one of the haves this is very nice, but if you are one of the have nots it makes life, how shall I say this – awkward, complicated and troublesome!
So the obvious solution is to start gifting. You can do this on the physical plane without actually connecting to Love. And you will get positive results from gifting on the physical plane, but the physical law of win/lose still applies to all your other aspects of life because you haven’t connected to Love itself. To connect with love itself means that you become empowered! In all aspects of your life! You move into a Win/Win situation in every aspect of life!
So there you have it – the two choices of win/lose or Win/Win. The choice is yours, do with it what you will! But are half a dozen words spoken out aloud too much to ask for, if it means that you will move from the physical to the spiritual plane? from the win/lose situation of life to the Win/Win? No! So go ahead and ask! What have you got to loose? Nothing! What have you got to gain? Lots and lots and lots! Especially Love and Empowerment!
May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
