Get thee behind me satan!

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

and

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!

The VIRTUOUS CYCLE part ONE (of 3)

This is a revealing of how to set up the Virtuous cycle for yourself. It is a detailed explanation, so it is going to take some time, hence the three parts (or maybe 4).

In Life there are always two choices. With the Virtuous cycle we have an opposite cycle too,  which is called the vicious cycle. We will look at this first because we have to know both sides of the story to actually Know the truth (“You will Know the truth and the truth will set you free!”  By knowing the negative side of things we can recognise those traits in ourselves (past or present) and (especially useful) in others. Why is this useful? Because we don’t have to experience the pain of the negative cycle to learn from it ourselves. We can simply see it manifest in other’s lives and avoid the actions (source) that caused the reactions! This is a far less painful way of learning.

As I said there are always (at least) two ways of doing things. One is to experience negative things ourselves – very painful! The second is to experience negative things through other people (far more detached.) The third way is to follow a master’s example and avoid the pain altogether! Much easier!

The vicious cycle starts with no, or bad. goals. Most people have with no goals. And spiritual law dictated that “man, left to his own devices, is inclined towards evil”  If you have no goals, then your life is more likely to drift into negative circumstances than positive circumstances. That is just the way of life. Like a boat upon the lake is more likely to drift into rocks than to the dock!

As you can see from the below diagram, no goals tends to create negative actions in life, which in turn plant bad seeds (bad goals definitely plant bad seeds!) Either way, bad seeds reap bad results! Bad results – Is that what we want in our lives? Methinks not! Lol!

So we don’t want the vicious/negative cycle in our lives, but many people suffer from this cycle, not because they are actually bad, but because they have no goals! Man left to his own (no) devices is inclined towards evil (negative results) So how do we avoid negative results in our own lives? The only positive (spiritual) way is to set up a system called the virtuous cycle.

In the virtuous cycle we become farmers of our own lives! In this cycle “Man, in the virtuous cycle, is destined towards peace and prosperity!” Notice the two elements – peace and prosperity(wealth). The two are inseparable in the spiritual realm, for we cannot ever be wholly peaceful without wealth (prosperity equals a continuous flow of energy) or peace (a detached state of bliss). The two must be balanced in all our lives. Spirituality is not about denial of the positives. Spirituality is about denial of the negatives and acceptance of the positives! There is a good definition of spirituality …

SPIRITUALITY IS ABOUT THE DENIAL OF THE NEGATIVES AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE POSITIVES!” J’iam

And the negative cycle is called the vicious cycle, whilst the positive cycle is called the Virtuous Cycle.  I don’t think I have to explain the vicious cycle any more with examples etc. It is important that we get onto the virtuous cycle because implementing the virtuous cycle deleted the vicious cycle entirely!

The Virtuous Cycle

The Virtuous cycle is the exact opposite of the vicious cycle, in that we deliberately plant good seeds by taking good actions, derived from setting good goals! Setting good goals by themselves is not the complete answer, but it is the beginning of the answer. Would you set out to sea with a captain who has no destination in mind? I certainly wouldn’t, but that is the way i worked when i was younger and inexperienced! After a few very hairy journeys and shipwrecks I decided to only get aboard with captains who offered me a definite destination! Lol! That is when i learned about the virtuous cycle.

As I said, you have to have the right goals*. But goals without actions are like standing on the dock without ever getting aboard a ship!

If we have good goals and then action those goals, then we are going to have good results come back to us! Simple as that! Good Goals and Good Actions plant good seeds in the spiritual world, which will return to you as a good crop (results/returns). Nothing complicated here, is there? The basic layout is simple. It’s the application that is difficult to know, as they go against the ways of man. It is the application of the virtuous I am introducing here today.

So I have shown you the two cycles thus far. It is important to know that there are two cycles, so we can deliberately choose one or the other (only an idiot would deliberately choose the vicious cycle, but there are idiots in the world and i have met a couple of them over the past 40 years of adulthood!

Know that in the spiritual cycle, all energy works on the principle of Gifting. If it is not based on gifting, it belongs to either the metaphysical or physical cycles. In the two lower realms gifting is replaced by trading/exchange.

For a gift to be made it has to Be offered and accepted. If an offer isn’t made and accepted then the object is simply given away. Why is this difference important? Because giving away is a win/lose situation, whilst Gifting is a Win/Win situation! How does this work. If I say “Here. have this!” and give it to you you have gained the object and I have lost it – win/lose. If I offer you the object and you accept it then you have won and I have won too. How does that work. By me offering it and you accepting, we set in motion the law of “Sowing and reaping” – “as you sow, so shall you reap MULTIPLIED, 30, 50, 100 fold“. So you have received the benefit of the gift, but i will receive that gift back multiplied! And that is guaranteed by the higher laws! So, how can I ever lose by gifting? I can’t! And that is why it is called the virtuous cycle. Virtue in the spiritual sense means morally pure (good).

Gifting, looked at in another way, is a form of spiritual investment! Are we not told, “if you want to be wealthy, then invest!” by bankers and capital managers? The same goes on the spiritual level too, except the investment is different (offer and acceptance)  and the returns are much higher! Lol!

So Giftings, in the form of an offer and an acceptance, equals returns to you from the higher laws of sowing and reaping (also called the law of Karma – sowing and reaping is western terminology, Karma is eastern).

Image

Gifting is the foundation of the laws of sowing and reaping. We can gift Cash, Goods, Services and LOVE. And we can get all of these gifts back in the same manner or transformed! So we can gift cash and get it back as goods multiplied. or we can gift goods and get it back as service multiplied. Or we can gift Love and get is back as any and all of the returns multiplied (Love is the strongest form of energy!)!

I think that is enough for today. Tomorrow we will look at HOW to implement the virtuous cycle – who to pay and how etc.

At the end of this mini course I will offer the whole thing as a booklet in the PDF format (free, as a gift from me to you! Lol!)
