"In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy."
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi ~ 1937 Nobel Prize - Medicine
"Nothing can be taught to a man, but it is possible to help him find the answer within himself."
Plenty of Energy for Everyone!
According to the most ancient texts on the planet -The Vedas-the Universe itself goes through births and deaths, 'Cycles of Brahman', the in and out breath of God.
Galaxies are born and die. Suns die and are born everyday, every moment in our Uni - Verse (Song of One). 100,000 people die everyday and a few more are born everyday on our planet. Our Sun -Star has burned continually for billions of years and will for billions more. Our little planet is the size of a pea compared to a basketball for a Sun. Only a small, small amount of the Sun's rays that are coming off the Sun ever touch the Earth...and then only one half of our planet at a time! (The other half is in nighttime of course.)
Yet, that tiny amount of Sun Rays that reach our planet is so much, so overwhelmingly much energy that it easily triggers the whole planet into overflowing with green abundance everywhere! When left alone Nature produces an overwhelming effervescing explosion of greenery. I was recently in Peru at the headwaters of the Amazon River. The jungle was a wall of green, a continually buzzing powerhouse of amazing amounts of life and energy. I felt overwhelmed going into it, so many layers and depths of Life pouring forth from everywhere. I was participating in Ayahuasca Ceremonies with Shamans and the spirits of the jungle were literally coming alive for me!
Inside A "Wall of Teeming Green"
And look at the profusion of people on Earth. We even call it the 'population explosion'. Where does all this energy come from? Obviously there is no shortage of energy anywhere. Animal, plants, people, suns, galaxies and very likely universes are being created in abundance everywhere all the time.
Thought and Intelligence create the physical Universe. Thought & Consciousness can be measured today with EEG machines at hospitals. There are electromagnetic energies coming through the brain and spinal column. These energies, these thoughts, this Consciousness is what creates in the material world. We have to first think of something before we can create it. And God -Source - Large Intelligence has to first think of Galaxies, Stars, Planets, plants, animals and human beings before they get created.
And humans are created as pieces of the Divine Intelligence, we are 'sparks', 'chips' off the Old Block. We have within us the ability to think, create, consciously be Aware. So how we think, what we think, becomes our reality. We create the world around us by our thoughts. Because the thought comes first, it is the 'blueprint' that is then 'fleshed out'.
Where does 'Shortage', Lack, come from?
From our thoughts. When we as individuals and the collective believes things like--
It's a 'dog eat dog' world
The early bird gets the worm
No Pain, No Gain
Only the strong survive
The best revenge is Success
Get them before they get you
Life's a bitch then you die
Money will solve all my problems
There's only so much available and I have to get mine before others do
There's only so much oil in the ground
They're not making any more land
All the good men are taken
When we believe that there is a 'shortage' of energy, of 'stuff', of cars, of oil, of men to marry, of truthful women, of food, of water, of time, of love, of...energy.
Then so it becomes.
Because - Be Cause and you will know that it is so be cause we think it so.
And when 'leaders' - those who have the power to influence how others think, international bankers, governments, owners of our media, push and promote these beliefs of shortage then it becomes a collective reality because each mind out there that watches TV and gets 'programmed' as to what to believe, be interested in, how things are, absorbs the programming and then projects it on their physical world around them. A neat trick! on how to control and manage whole civilizations from behind the scenes.
"Hurry, Hurry, Hurry...sale only lasts 2 days! When (the Cars, the clothes, the X) are gone, they're gone!" "Don't miss your chance!". "Final Closeout!" etc.
"Only 2 positions available!" "If you snooze you lose!"
This programming of our collective is deeply imprinted in the minds of most. That we have to compete, fight, go to 'war' for resources. War only comes from having to 'fight' over artificially 'scarce' resources. If there is plenty for everyone why fight? Men wouldn't have to strategize and fight over who gets the woman. Women wouldn't have to manipulate and fight over who gets the man. We wouldn't have wars for who gets to have the oil etc.
War never works --
-The 'War on Drugs' -- which is the biggest failure of any government program ever implemented, has created more people having their lives destroyed by drugs than ever. Our prison population has skyrocketed from 300,000 in 1984 to 1.5 million today!, mainly because of our drug program. What if there was a cabinet post that the head of got paid by how many people he successfully 'cured' of drug habits? If prisons are being built by corporations in a 'growth industry' obviously their motivating factor is to have more inmates! Not less, they get paid more if more people are put in jail. And when corporations hire lobbyists in Congress they pass bills that help them create more criminals! Like the "war on drugs".
If pro and con are opposite, what is the opposite of Progress?
-The 'War between the Sexes' -- which causes massive emotional pain, distrust and outright violence between men and women is obviously not working.
-The 'War on Cancer' -- is an utter failure with billions of dollars wasted away in laboratories. There is more cancer today than ever.
'War' never works. Because 'What you fight you feed'.
In an argument, if one side refuses to argue and follows Jesus's advice and 'Turns the other cheek', then there can be no 'war', no battle can get started. It truly 'takes two to tango'.
Some wise words from a master:
A man of peace is not a pacifist
a man of peace is simply a pool of silence.
He pulsates a new kind of energy into the world,
he sings a new kind of song.
He lives totally in a new way, his very way of
life is that of grace, that of prayer, that of compassion.
Whomever he touches , he creates more love-energy
The man of peace is creative.
He is not against war, because to be against any thing
is to be at war.
He is not against war, he simply understands why war exists
And out of that understanding he becomes peaceful.
Only when there are many people who are pools of peace,
silence and understanding,
will war disappear.
Zen--The Path of Paradox, vol II
God spoke to me a few years ago about how not to 'oppose' anything would allow the space of fluidity, miracles, flow.
Realized God Beings live in constant Abundance
Study or watch a Master, an enlightened being. There is no rush, no fear, no worry. You cannot connive them into feeling a 'shortage' of anything. They are connected with the Source of All, the One who created all the Stars, all the Gold, all the energy in the Uni Verse. They know they are children, or pieces, or connected to this Source and that this Source can provide for them at any time, whatever they need as long as they stay in contact with that Intelligence and follow It's promptings.
"All the Universe belongs to God"
"I have come to bring you Life, and more abundantly."
What if we individually and collectively believed things like:
I have all that I need
I have all the energy I need inside me
I easily, comfortably, enjoyably create and allow in to my life whatever I desire
Nothing can stop you from having your reality how you want it.
The collective reality may or may not change quickly or slowly. We may go through major wars and upheavals fighting for artificially created 'shortages' of resources. You cannot change the collective on that level...unless you change you first.
Plenty of Energy for you is immediately imminently possible in your life.
Clean your Self. Clean the pipes, the mind, the heart, your own belief system.
And start enjoying the effervescing cornucopia of unlimited Energy that is all around us.
Jews, Christians & Muslims!
A Family Squabble!
Solomon Temple Wall & Dome of the Rock - Mohammed's Ascension stone
Traveling in Israel years ago I remember walking beside the 'Wailing Wall' of the Jews up to the top of the Temple Mount where today stands the Mosque of the Dome of the Rock.
The 'Wailing Wall' is that part of Solomon's Temple that is still there and only orthodox jews are allowed in to worship here. It's been traditionally called the 'wailing wall' because of jews praying or 'wailing' here for the return of the temple and the glory of Israel.
Many of us see this picture of Jerusalem with the golden cupola building on the top of the Temple Mount and have no idea what it is, or we assume it's a jewish temple of some sort perhaps. I did.
It's not. It's the second holiest place for Islam. This is where according to their beliefs, Mohammed ascended, turned into light, just like Jesus, burned an imprint of his foot into a rock as he ascended up into the sky. The Mosque of the Dome of the Rock is built around the rock with Mohammed's footprint in it.
So as I'm walking up the walkway and looking over at the orthodox jews praying and placing their written prayers in the cracks of the wall, I stop. There are two young Israeli guards, one boy and one girl, with machine guns slung over their shoulders in my way. I look at their faces, they feel innocent, young, fresh in a way. It's hard for me to see the machine guns in their hands and reconcile it with the openness and friendliness on their faces.
I stop. I can see the last standing wall of Solomon's Temple, the holiest place for Jews. I see just in front of me The Dome of the Rock, the second holiest place for Muslims. Over to my left I know is Golgatha and the Empty Tomb that Jesus rose from, one of the holiest places for Christians, and over the hill behind the Mosque is the Garden of Gethsamane where Jesus prayed his last night on earth.
As I stand there with the Israeli guards I hear Spirit talking to me. And in an instant I 'see' more of the bigger picture.
Spirit (it felt like one of God's assistants-Angels-Helpers that was helping me) shows me that Abraham was the 'Father' of all 3 of these religions, Judaism, Christanity, and Islam. Abraham was the father of two sons, Isaac and Ishmael. Isaacs descendants became the Jews, and Ishmael's descendants became the Arabs. He fathered Isaac by Sarah. And at Sarah's request! (when she was barren, common practice on those days) fathered Ishmael by Hagar, Sarah's servant woman. Jesus, as a jew, came and tried to insert a 'new testament' with no success with the Jews, but it spawned a whole new religion amongst 'gentiles', the pagans in the Roman Empire.
I could feel the rivalry, the squabble between brothers and relatives!
The whole drama, the whole soap opera, the whole mess is just one big family drama! With brothers fighting to be right, to get the inheritance, to be most important.
Centuries of fighting, crusaders, Saladin (the Mohammedan fighter), Knights Templars, Greek Orthodox churches, the Coptic Church of Egypt, Massada (the massacre of Jews by Romans), Titus' plunder of the Jewish Temple, Mohammed speaking with the Angel Gabriel, Muslims conquering of lands, Christian missionaries, the Catholic Church 'conquistadoring' the Americas...on and on...the Drama of centuries of fighting and strife...
...all just a...
...Family rivalry, Family Squabble, that started way back.
It's no better than the Hatfields and McCoy's. The fight continues and no one knows why or what the orinal fight was about. Was is over a stolen pig or a stolen cow? Doesn't matter, get the guns, let's go get 'em.
We love Drama...We give awards for it..."And the winner of best Family Drama is....!"
But...is it worth the price?
Have we had enough?
Are we ready for something new?
