You Answer

You Answer
O savior I ask
Why do at times still I feel lost
I really thought I had it all
Is my head too big
Am I egoing you out
You are all I got
Yet at times I feel real less
Sometimes I feel forgot
In a whirlwind wind of misactions
Maybe I thought wrong
When i came to you
I thought all my needs were gone
Must I know all you gave me
I still need yet not abuse
I am so thankful and grcious
For you, my family and YOU.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 328

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 328
Marianne Williamson
Learning to replace the ego with God's will for our lives helps us to understand the order God would give to our lives.

I choose the second place to gain the first.

What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside down until we listen to the Voice for God. It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God's creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss and death. This is not what our Father wills for us, nor is there any second to His Will. To join with His is but to find our own. And since our will is His, it is to Him that we must go to recognize our will.

There is no will but Yours. And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me be. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will which You, my Father, gave as part of me.

Quote of the Day
"If we go for God, all that is not authentically ourselves will drop. Go for the light and darkness will disappear. Focus on Christ means focus on the goodness and power that lie latent within us, in order to invoke them into realization and expression."

— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Free Tuition

Free Tuition!
While the majority of those graduating college this year will spend the next five to 10 years struggling to pay for the average $20,000 in student-loan debt, senior Joy Lekar is financially focused on something bigger. "My husband and I just got preapproved for a house because we have no debt," Lekar says. "We just got married last year and now we're going to have a house. It's awesome."
Hailing from a middle-class background, Lekar chalks up her financial success to one simple fact: She doesn't pay tuition. Neither does her husband nor any of her 1,300-plus classmates. At College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Mo., every student is proof that higher education doesn't have to come with a price tag.
One of a handful of "work colleges," -- institutions that require students to incorporate work as part of the educational curriculum -- College of the Ozarks provides full scholarships to all students who make it in, and free room and board as well for every student willing to give up summer break. Students enrolled there jokingly refer to it as "Hard Work U."
Instead of hiring outside contractors to manage school-owned facilities, students attending College of the Ozarks each pitch in 15 to 20 hours per week in positions ranging from computer-lab technician to hog-farm worker and receive a grade for their performance and work ethic. College of the Ozarks president Dr. Jerry Davis says that student labor at the school cuts tuition costs by about 25 percent. The rest is subsidized by the school's $300 million endowment as well as by revenue generated from businesses owned by College of the Ozarks, such as the student-run hotel and conference center.
"Students who don't need to be in debt wind up in debt each year," Davis says. "Institutions are partly to blame. Colleges and universities aren't known for controlling their costs. The government is certainly a problem, too."
Davis point out that allocating more money for loans instead of scholarships and work-study funding means we should not be surprised by the continued rise of tuition and subsequent debt.
Where are other free schools?
As more families scramble for financial aid, schools such as College of the Ozarks beg the question, why aren't more schools free, or at least cheaper? Instead of fine-tuning the financial-aid system, could a different business model reduce student debt faster? That depends, says Ken Redd, director of research and policy analysis for the National Association of College and University Business Officers. While free-tuition models might work for schools with nine-figure endowments, most institutions, especially those that rely on public funds, simply don't have the money.
"While the listed tuition price is expensive, it's still far below the actual cost that institutions bear for educating each student," Redd says. He cites a study by the Washington, D.C.-based think tank The Delta Project showing that among public undergrad institutions, tuition accounts for only 51 percent of each student's total cost. At private schools, it accounts for 65 percent and in both cases, the rest is subsidized by school funds.

"Higher education has to pay the cost for providing new technology to students and faculty, health insurance increases every year, and states are cutting their appropriations," says Redd. "Colleges and universities try to keep costs down, but there's just no other choice than to pass those cuts on to students." Redd adds that while institutions as a whole can certainly do more to control costs through sharing resources with neighboring institutions, pushing more online classes, invoking hiring freezes and directing financial-aid funds to lower- and middle-class families, tuition will still increase, especially as markets continue to tank.
Where education and business meet
Instead of relying solely on an endowment, a possible alternative is to increase the tie between education and business. "You could certainly support a university out of the earnings of a Google or an ExxonMobil," says Dr. George Campbell, president of The Cooper Union, a New York City-based engineering college that offers free tuition for all students.
"If you could get the CEO of one of these companies to say 'OK, we would like to support a higher-education institution,' that could work. Alternately, you could get a higher-education institution to develop a business that would generate enough profit to support the academic infrastructure."
To support its 1,000 students and $50 million yearly operating budget, The Cooper Union takes the latter approach. The school's real-estate holdings include an array of residential and retail outfits throughout New York City, the most famous of which is the Chrysler Building, and generate approximately $23 million to $24 million in rental income each year, roughly half the amount required to fund free tuition for all students. The rest is made up in annual fundraising, which accounts for approximately $22 million each year, and the remainder comes from the school's $607 million endowment.
The problem with applying this business model to other schools is that it requires initial startup funds and then years for universities to build up revenue streams in the millions. It requires a different student mindset.
"Many students from a well-to-do background are looking for a traditional college experience, a pretty campus, a relaxed ivory-tower environment with climbing walls and swimming pools and facilities that we don't have," Campbell says. "We attract kids who need free tuition and that's in part because we're a no-frills kind of college."
Instead of focusing on offering free rides, Dr. Michelle Cooper, president of the Institute for Higher Education Policy, a Washington D.C.-based education think tank, says that schools can get the biggest bang for their buck by turning their funds over to students who need them most. "For students whose families can pay for them to go to college, the free-tuition model is not going to be a good investment," Cooper notes. "Over the next decade, we want to see colleges restrain their costs as much as possible and hold low- and middle-income families harmless from rising tuition costs."
To do that will require a combined effort from everyone involved in the financial-aid process.
"It's not as simple as making a new business model," Cooper says. "There are over 3,000 institutions in this country and they all have unique finance policies. When we peel this onion, we have to think about the federal government's role, the state's role, the institution's role and the family's role."

So yes Blank page
I wrote on your divine page.

Black Panther

O bold black panther
You stand calmly with you own
Yet live alone in a world disowned
Where are you now
The light needs you
Yet you scan the darkness alone
Being hunted voraciously sometimes by your own
Are you number one the FBI's list
Why are many rotting in the wake
Some never found in the hot cake
Time now for US to team up
Time now for us to team up
Stand strong in your deep dark skin
We are more now, more than ever before
O bold black panther
Thank You for standing so strong

Young Man

To no one especially when they act
Similar to youngns they wack
Grow up and grow like a leaf
Filtering the light of God

Grow from strong roots

Internally looking for Eternity

Internally looking for Eternity
As I close my eyes
My heart stills
Then I look into eternity
Realizing everything and anything lies here
Inspiration to focus
I dream to live in pure abundance
Living physically to get metaphysically stronger
I want it so bad
To get it done
But I am smarter now just living easily
It is time, time now to get it going
Like a calm river I am always flowing
So dont dam me
Just because you dont understand me
Impossible is nothing
As I close my eyes and look internally into eternity

Hope (Poem)

Hope is a good thing
Maybe the best of things
For without Hope one can dream not
Yet with Hope one can dream everything
So dream on so we can both hope.

Living in Miami, FL. USA

So instead of being limited in my visits to Miami, the universe has made it possible for me to live, work, school and/ or expand my awareness in the beautifulness of Miami. I thank God for this not only because I was asking for change but he/she is always constantly letting me know that IT is real. I want to stay in awareness instead of letting anxiousness, nervousness, or anger creep up into my emotional fields.

So I made a library to continue my "studies". Miami has a lot of libraries so one can get a good book in any area here as their is a whole Miami-dade library system and they are all connected kind of like us once one chooses to be aware of it.

I am going to keep on blogging on "Life Examined- The thinkers thoughts". So keep up and pray up to stay up. Life is a gift guys and gals/ my peeps. SO take any hardship as a gateway to a much needed lesson that you must learn. Stop fighting - your arms to short to box with God, besides you are really just fighting yourself.

O yea that jet poem was on a plane as i always wanted to be on the mile high club. ; )

Righteously Jetting

I am flying right through the sky Y'all
Ready to buy evrything in the sky mall
So much good cool things in it
Things that come from the Holy Spirit
Pretty Girls givin' me all their digits
Ima call them one day while I'm cascading all these riches
I am as rich now as Solomon is but it aint through wishes
Using this God given wisdom just like he did w/ his
SO listen close to my words kids
For it is God and not Vickens who speaks
God seriously loves us eternally, infinitely
So what are you choosing to let go to get on wit him
I dare not say I am as perfect as his son did
Yet I know where my vision is
So let and watch me fly high in my honda personal jet
As I stay greened collecting the finest gems, diamonds and begets
Then cashing 'em in cause its so much more worth it
TO give back while they saying he musta deserved it

1 love Vickens M.

Haitian Sugar Plant

Ayitian Sugar Plant
I went to Haiti and thought
What can I give back to my strong people who fought
For Freedom and Justice they sought
Then dissimated Napoleans army
I guess I'll go back to my roots
And do what the French orginally sought to use
So I opened up a Haitien Sugar Plant
While giving many jobs so they too can afford to buy into me
But how will they catch up with the rest of the world
If they are just planting sugar cane seeds for me and the rest of the world
So I brought in some of the worlds greatest teachers
Then opened a school in Miamis' Lil' Haiti
So now I am not the only one going back to giving back
So now these Haitiens aren't only teaching me
But teaching the rest of the world how we can all BE
I am going back to Mother Africa like an outsourcing company
God its so cool to really see these dreams
I guess it has always been my destiny to manifest
To bless this great world with what has been inside my chest

BE Wings

BE Wings
You are who you think you are
You see who you want to BE
But what you want to BE doesn't even want to BE itself
So who am I?
One has has to ask themselves
Who can I BE if I really see myself
JESUS was the son of GOD and grew into himself to the fullest
He rarely questioned himself yet was a fool the foolish
People just realize that you need real savings more than a beating heart
Cause once that heart stops pumping you lose heart plus self plus life
Then one can rule the bottomworld with the stingy angel of the dark
That once was but is here negatively unpositively in ones mind
Telling you that you too can't be o so divine
Cause he can't BE, he cant see the greatness
He can't spread wings like love highly unlikely
So what are you to BE or not
Positively living like one should BE or not

With the universe producing and directing for me
I make music for your soul with these poems
So now you have no choice but to listen to me quotes
I been told you God is real
So where you gonna go and how do you feel
Positive and great things are only what I deal
Businesses that are for-benefit while making mad profit for the reals
Prophesing I am so hear me like we are stuck together in a coffin
And realize you too can BE as great as my Word

Something tells me this cant be how to'd or wiki'd
So take it as it comes man
Be glad you are a part of me son
And get up and out your hood
For its good weather all the time here
Chillin in Cabo and England dear
Doing business with people also on a mission
Visiting where saint Teresa was with her vision
One day people will be screaming my name
While I am jewelizing their brains
On some real ish I can't take credit for this
But what backs me up can back you up too in bliss

Above emotions

Above Emotions

To gain control of emotions
Is to not fear Love
To not fear the down ones
Will help keep one above

Love is so sweet
Fear is dispersing to your feet
Walk over it unlookingly
Because your love is for me is so deep

For beauty is more than any can see

This too shall pass

This too shall pass while smiling said the poor man
This too shall pass while crying said the rich man
What defines you defiantly not me said V
But arent we all one said the g
Surely we are said Big G
God bless all the children
So let peace begin with them
Then one day they can teach US
This too shall pass said the one living
So true said the one dying
Please pass on this message said he to she
That through all the trials and tribulations
Everything will eventually pass

Happiness (poem)

I wish I could make you happy
Now I realize my happiness was never enough for you
For me yours makes me smile
Joyousosity can be had through all trials
So realize where my happiness lies
From the great debaters
To the usual haters
You too can find what makes you tick
Dick Cheney was happy being secong in charge
Of americas happiness I am not charged of
Of this world I am not to live part of
So where am I to be apart of
Gods Sons relived through me
Give me a kiss and I'll show you some postive ish
Then we shall speak while Being unselfish

Some poems from myself to you w/ video

Better than thinking,
Better than speaking,
O how I love to meditate in prayer.
O How I love blessings,
Dont you.
Why curse myself?
Life can be better if,
I bless rather then curse.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 305

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 305
Marianne Williamson Listen In
Close this window

Seeing through the eyes of the ego, we doom ourselves to a lack of inner peace. With this lesson, we claim the loving vision of the world that leads inevitably to inner peace.

There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.

Who uses but Christ's vision finds a peace so deep and quiet, undisturbable and wholly changeless, that the world contains no counterpart. Comparisons are still before this peace. And all the world departs in silence as this peace envelops it, and gently carries it to truth, no more to be the home of fear. For love has come, and healed the world by giving it Christ's peace.

Father, the peace of Christ is given us, because it is Your Will that we be saved. Help us today but to accept Your gift, and judge it not. For it has come to us to save us from our judgment on ourselves.

Quote of the Day
"God is all that is good. He creates only love, therefore he did not create sickness. Sickness is an illusion and does not actually exist. It is part of our worldly dream, our self-created nightmare. Our prayer to God is that He awaken us from the dream."

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.

Time is not an enemy unless you try to kill it.

If television shows continue the way they're going, the public will soon be demanding longer commercials.

He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Giant oak trees started out as little nuts that held their ground.

To disagree, one doesn't have to be disagreeable.

Nature is the art of God.

A truly contented person enjoys the scenery along a detour.

We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors--we borrow it from our children.

No brook is too little to seek the sea.

Joy is not in what we's in what we are.

An obstacle may be either a stepping stone or a stumbling block.

Gentleness and kind persuasion win where force and bluster fail.

The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.

The best thing you can spend on your children is time.

Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 293 w/ my reflections.

It takes mental effort to deny the darkness and emotional effort to embrace the light. With this lesson, we do both.

All fear is past and only love is here.

All fear is past, because its source is gone, and all its thoughts gone with it. Love remains the only present state, whose Source is here forever and forever. Can the world seem bright and clear and safe and welcoming, with all my past mistakes oppressing it, and showing me distorted forms of fear? Yet in the present love is obvious, and its effects apparent. All the world shines in reflection of its holy light, and I perceive a world forgiven at last.

Father, let not Your holy world escape my sight today. Nor let my ears be deaf to all the hymns of gratitude the world is singing underneath the sounds of fear. There is a real world which the present holds safe from all past mistakes. And I would see only this world before my eyes today.

Quote of the Day

"We do not always know at the time why the Holy Spirit directs us as He does. The miracle worker's function is merely to follow instructions in a desire to serve God. Our compensation, materially and emotionally, will arrive in God's own time and way."

— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
My Reflections:  The world can be a scary place. It may seem like we have to do this or that just to continue living in our own homes. Parents telling us this or that while we can tell they are not even really happy. Who did they listen to one has to ask themselves and if I listen to them will it be an old voice in their head I am really listening to.  To me it would make sense to get on the path of the "being" that set this whole thing in motion because if hhe smart enough to make a living cell we call earth, how come he cant tell me the best way to go about living my own life.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 291

While we often think that we can only be at peace if certain circumstances change, with this exercise we claim peace as a constant. Finding peace within ourselves, situations around us automatically become more peaceful.

This is a day of stillness and of peace.

Christ's vision looks through me today. His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace, and offers this same vision to the world. And I accept this vision in its name, both for myself and for the world as well. What loveliness we look upon today! What holiness we see surrounding us! And it is given us to recognize it is a holiness in which we share; it is the Holiness of God Himself.

This day my mind is quiet, to receive the Thoughts You offer me. And I accept what comes from You, instead of from myself. I do not know the way to You. But You are wholly certain. Father, guide Your Son along the quiet path that leads to You. Let my forgiveness be complete, and let the memory of You return to me.

Quote of the Day

"We're afraid to leave things in God's hands because we don't know what He'll do with them. We're afraid He'll lose our file. If we're going to set any goal, let us set the goal of being healed of the belief that God is fear instead of love."

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 288

All of us have things in our past that we are ashamed of, and our greatest hope is that others will see past those mistakes to the person who we are now. With this lesson, we instruct ourselves to give that same mercy to others that we might receive it for ourselves.

Let me forget my brother's past today.

This is the thought that leads the way to You, and brings me to my goal. I cannot come to You without my brother. And to know my Source, I first must recognize what You created one with me. My brother's is the hand that leads me on the way to You. His sins are in the past along with mine, and I am saved because the past is gone. Let me not cherish it within my heart, or I will lose the way to walk to You. My brother is my savior. Let me not attack the savior You have given me. But let me honor him who bears Your Name, and so remember that It is my own.

Forgive me, then, today. And you will know you have forgiven me if you behold your brother in the light of holiness. He cannot be less holy than can I, and you can not be holier than he.

Quote of the Day

"The miracle worker's goal in every circumstance is peace of mind."

The Realm of Consciousness

by Eckhart Tolle

How easy it is for people to become trapped in their conceptual prisons. The human mind, in its desire to know, understand and control, mistakes its opinions and viewpoints for the truth. It says: this is how it is.

VIEWPOINTS - You have to be larger than thought to realise that however you interpret your life or someone else's life or behaviour, however you judge any situation, it is no more than a viewpoint, one of many possible perspectives. It is no more than a bundle of thoughts. But reality is one unified whole, in which all things are interwoven, where nothing exists in and by itself.

INNER SPACE - The realm of consciousness is much vaster than thought can grasp. When you no longer believe everything you think, you step out of thought and see clearly that the thinker is not who you are. The mind exists in a state of not enough and so is always greedy for more. When you are identified with mind, you get bored and restless very easily. When you feel bored, you can satisfy the mind's hunger by picking up a magazine, making a phone call, switching on the TV, surfing the web or going shopping. Or you can stay bored and restless and observe what it feels like to be bored and restless. As you bring awareness to the feeling, there is suddenly some space and stillness around it, as it were.

A little at first, but as the sense of inner space grows, the feeling of boredom will begin to diminish in intensity and significance. So even boredom can teach you who you are and who you are not. You discover that a bored person is not who you are. Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not yours, not personal. They are conditions of the human mind.

DYSFUNCTIONAL CONCEPTS - Prejudice of any kind implies that you are identified with the thinking mind. It means you don't see the other human being anymore, but only your own concept of that human being. To reduce the aliveness of another human being to a concept is already a form of violence. Thinking that is not rooted in awareness becomes self-serving and dysfunctional. Cleverness devoid of wisdom is extremely dangerous and destructive. That is the current state of most of humanity.

TRANSCENDING THOUGHT - The next step in human evolution is to transcend thought. It doesn't mean not to think anymore, but simply not to be completely identified with thought, possessed by thought.

Feel the energy of your inner body. Feel the life that you are, the life that animates the body. The body then becomes a doorway, so to speak, into a deeper sense of aliveness underneath the fluctuating emotions and underneath your thinking.

ALIVENESS - There is an aliveness in you that you can feel with your entire being, not just in the head. Every cell is alive in that presence in which you don't need to think. Yet, in that state, if thought is required for some practical purpose, it is there. The mind can still operate, and it operates beautifully when the greater intelligence that you are uses it and expresses itself through it.

AWARE PRESENCE - You may have overlooked that brief periods in which you are "conscious without thought" are already occurring naturally and spontaneously in your life. You may be engaged in some manual activity or walking across the room or waiting at the airline counter and be so completely present that the usual mental static of thought subsides and is replaced by an aware presence. Your perceptions become crystal clear, unclouded by thought.

STATE OF KNOWING - To the mind, all this is not significant because it has more important things to think about. It is also not memorable and that's why you may have overlooked that it is already happening. The truth is that it is the most significant thing that can happen to you. It is the beginning of a shift from thinking to aware presence. Become at ease with the state of not knowing.

BEYOND THE MIND - This takes you beyond mind because the mind is always trying to conclude and interpret. It is afraid of not knowing. So, when you can be at ease with not knowing, you have already gone beyond the mind. A deeper knowing that is non-conceptual then arises out of that state.

MASTERY - Artistic creation, sports, dance, teaching, counseling - mastery in any field of endeavour implies that the thinking mind is either no longer involved at all or at least is taking second place. A power and intelligence greater than you and yet one with you in essence takes over. There is no decision-making process anymore; spontaneous right action happens and you are not doing it. Mastery of life is the opposite of control. You become aligned with the greater consciousness. It acts, speaks, does the works.


Go with the flow and grow

So hello everyone...its is truly a blessing to be here and after 23 years only now am I finally coming to realizations on this thing we call life.

I have been learning a lot recently, more than my years in school, elementary, middle, high school and even college. Life is meant to be easy and yet we complicating by wanting more than we truly need. (i.e. our financial mess that is affecting the whole world.) In these time it is better to let go of what you have been taught and start fresh learning a new. Life will get better for not only you, but us all since we have to realize where we have been going wrong if we want to change what has been happening to us. I know we all want to feel like individuals and make our own life but if you truly dont care for your neighbor how are you truly going to care for yourself.

Instead of looking at what others have think " God Blessed you with that and if I needed that I would have been born with it". Instead of trying so hard to "fix" your outer appearance aim to find your inner knowing and you will automatically feel a lot better about yourself. I guarantee it like meineke. We have so much more to be thankful for than not so everyday write a least 5 things you are thankful for in a notebook as a way to help you realize this fact. Do different things if you want different results. If it did not work last year why would it work now.

Look inside and dont be afraid of what you will find because you will only be better and a stronger being. Starting looking into your feelings instead of denying them. Start being more gracious and thankful because you really never had to exist and life truly is a gift. So know that you have purpose here and God just would like for us to live it.

So my fellow being let us pray and meditate for eachother, why, beacause we are all one. What affects you may have an effect on me.

God Bless and let us co-create grerat things with God instead of against Tao.

Go with the flow and grow, I promise.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 285

By accepting our holiness, we remember who we really are. As our thoughts then reflect that remembrance, they are returned to us in peace and joy. With this exercise, we remind ourselves to stay in conscious contact with the holiness within.

My holiness shines bright and clear today.

Today I wake with joy, expecting but the happy things of God to come to me. I ask but them to come, and realize my invitation will be answered by the thoughts to which it has been sent by me. And I will ask for only joyous things the instant I accept my holiness. For what would be the use of pain to me, what purpose would my suffering fulfill, and how would grief and loss avail me if insanity departs from me today, and I accept my holiness instead?

Father, my holiness is Yours. Let me rejoice in it, and through forgiveness be restored to sanity. Your Son is still as You created him. My holiness is part of me, and also part of You. And what can alter Holiness Itself?

Awakening the Healer Within

   Awakening the Healer Within   

by Deepak Chopra

In my experience as a physician, over several decades, I have come to realize that a person's internal state of well-being really influences the outcome of illness. If you are feeling safe, loved, and the people around you are supportive, then your body is more likely to self-regulate. Self-regulation is an important part of the healing process. We all have a healing response built into our biology. This healing response is the restoration of homeostasis.

 Homeostasis is a state of dynamic, non-change in the midst of change. This means that in a healthier person, thousands of biological parameters remain within a certain range no matter what is happening in the environment. These biological parameters include everything from blood sugar levels to hormone levels to body temperature regulation to regulation of the immune system. It is now known that stress disrupts homeostasis and the experience of centered awareness and the giving and receiving of love restore homeostasis.

As I have indicated, disruption of homeostasis is the beginning of disease and the restoration of homeostasis is the healing response. Therefore, no matter what illness you are facing, the most important thing you can do is to move from a place of fear to a place of love and safety. In breast cancer in particular there is research to show that women in support groups have a much healthier outcome then women who feel lonely and afraid.
Today, the precise biological pathways through which love heals are even being mapped out by scientists. In particular, an internal state of euphoria induced by the experience of love causes the secretion of neurochemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, opiates, oxytocin, and vasopressin. These chemicals are not only antidepressants; they also modulate the activity of the immune system and are referred to as immuno-regulators.

Therefore, have confidence in your own healing power, awaken the healer within you, and surround yourself with loving and caring people and have a one-pointed intention that you will heal yourself. The mechanism through which intention orchestrates biological response is a mysterious phenomenon. But there is no doubt that intention influences our biology.
Through meditation, for example, one can learn to lower heart rate and blood pressure and eliminate the stress response. When intention is introduced before meditation it works in a precise manner by evoking very specific biological phenomena. According to wisdom traditions, intention has infinite organizing power.

This means that intention can orchestrate an infinity of space-time events in order to fulfill the intended outcome. In fact, a frequently-used term in the field of biology is teleology. Teleology was an old-fashioned term which is now being used frequently to explain certain mechanisms in evolution. Many scientists feel that intended outcomes influence their own biological mechanisms even in evolution (in other words, evolution is purpose-driven.) In any case, do not underestimate the power of intention. Think of it as electricity or electromagnetism and learn to harness it.

Heart-Centered Consciousness

Heart-Centered Consciousness

by Owen Waters

Unconditional Love

The purpose of being human, as we shift into the New Reality, is to learn about heart-centered consciousness. The universe is, by its very design, filled with the love of the Original Creator. Universal love is the aspect of Original Consciousness which holds Creation together. In the Original Creation, Infinite Being divided its consciousness into two complementary aspects - thought and feeling - and then set them into motion.

The love of the Original Creator forms the very fabric of space. No material thing and no part of "empty" space is devoid of that love. Universal love is literally everywhere. However, the human condition is only affected by this love when it is channeled into the human realm through its use by humans.

We are here on Earth to learn how to translate universal love into human form. Once universal love has been transformed through the consciousness of any individual human being, it enters the global mind atmosphere of Earth. We all share constant access to this global mind. While we initiate thoughts and feelings on our own, we also receive thoughts and feelings from the global mind. We sometimes alter these by our own thought, sometimes not, and then pass them back into the global mind. In an unconscious way, but not consciously, people are fully telepathic as they receive and transmit thoughts and feelings from and to the global mind atmosphere.

When a person experiences heart-centered consciousness, they radiate a type of consciousness which is very different to basic emotion. Heart-centered consciousness is a state of unconditional love. It is not a product of emotional like or dislike. Once started, nothing in physical reality affects the flow of unconditional love. It is something that just is, regardless of the circumstances.

Unconditional love is something that flows through your heart when you reach up above day-to-day consciousness, then open your heart and just allow it. This heart-centered consciousness always sees the elegant solution to the sorrows that can arise from basic human emotions.

Unconditional love allows, accepts and supports. It is not something you try to do. It just flows when you allow it to enter your heart and take your consciousness above the cares of daily reality and into an expanded vista of awareness.

Each time you radiate unconditional love into the global mind atmosphere, you upgrade the entire human experience, taking humanity yet one more step into the unfolding New Reality.

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 281

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 281
Marianne Williamson Listen In
When you realize that thought is the level of cause, you begin to think differently. Not worrying or fretting or overanalyzing a matter, but thinking the thoughts of God. What would God think about a situation or circumstance? You may not know, but as you study and reflect, you begin to think with God. By thinking with God, your thoughts are no longer hurtful to you or others. Your thoughts become an expression of the love of God.

I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.

Father, Your Son is perfect. When I think that I am hurt in any way, it is because I have forgotten who I am, and that I am as You created me. Your Thoughts can only bring me happiness. If ever I am sad or hurt or ill, I have forgotten what You think, and put my little meaningless ideas in place of where Your Thoughts belong, and where they are. I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts. The Thoughts I think with You can only bless. The Thoughts I think with You alone are true.

I will not hurt myself today. For I am far beyond all pain. My Father placed me safe in Heaven, watching over me. And I would not attack the Son He loves, for what He loves is also mine to love.

Quote of the Day
"There's no more potent way to thank God for your gifts, or to increase them, than by sharing them. You will be given as much power in the world as you are willing to use on His behalf."

A Course in Miracles, Lesson 278

These have been very helpful for my transformation or my remeber of the roots of my existence. Please read and be self helped.

Listen In
Understanding our freedom is acknowledging that we are not bound. We are not bound by a body, because we have a spirit. We are not bound by fear, because we reside in God's love. Our father is free, and we are free. In this lesson, we exercise our right to the freedom of God. If I am bound, my Father is not free.If I accept that I am prisoner within a body, in a world in which all things that seem to live appear to die, then is my Father prisoner with me. And this do I believe, when I maintain the laws the world obeys must I obey; the frailties and the sins which I perceive are real, and cannot be escaped. If I am bound in any way, I do not know my Father nor my Self. And I am lost to all reality. For truth is free, and what is bound is not a part of truth.Father, I ask for nothing but the truth. I have had many foolish thoughts about myself and my creation, and have brought a dream of fear into my mind. Today, I would not dream. I choose the way to You instead of madness and instead of fear. For truth is safe, and only love is sure.When we're working solely for money, our motivation is getting rather than giving. The miraculous transformation here is a shift from a sales mentality to a service mentality. Until we make this shift, we're operating from ego and concentrating on the things of this world rather than on love.Quote of the Day"When we're working solely for money, our motivation is getting rather than giving.

Crazy Catch

Mysteries of the Universe

Mysteries of the Universe

by Owen Waters

The metaphysics of today is the physics of tomorrow. By studying spiritual metaphysics, you get a head start in understanding the mysteries of the universe.

For example, two hundred years ago, electricity was still a huge mystery. Back then, a few visionaries uncovered more and more information about the nature of electricity. Once it became possible to generate electricity, it powered the Industrial Revolution and then went on to produce the Electronics Era, which soon morphed into today's Information Revolution.

This enormous chain reaction of technological evolution was made possible by the original curiosity of just a handful of visionary mystics. Now, imagine what the mystic insights of today's world could do for tomorrow's world. For example, the next energy to be understood is etheric energy. A more subtle cousin to electricity, etheric energy is the life force that streams towards us from the Sun, energizing and motivating all forms of life.

The mastery of etheric energy will lead to far more wide-ranging advances than electricity ever did. Within etheric energy, lie the keys to powerful healing modalities, pollution-free energy, and many other valuable innovations. Just the advent of abundant, inexpensive energy will transform the world, eliminating poverty and much of today's third world suffering.

Etheric energy is life energy. It is the energy that passes from spiritual healer to patient. It is the vitality or life force contained within air, water and food. It is the mystery energy which powers the endless orbit of electrons in their atoms and planets around their suns.

Etheric energy has been known by many other names - prana, life energy, vital life force, chi or qi, orgone, universal life force, odic force, cold electricity, tachyon energy; the list goes on.

Cosmologists - scientists who study the structure of the universe - are actually already on the trail of etheric energy. They have detected its presence in the cosmos through its gravitational side-effects, but they haven't been able to see it, so they call it 'dark energy.' The existence of dark energy - and its related dark matter - is one of the great, unanswered mysteries of science today. According to the observed movements of galaxies, it is calculated that 23% of the universe consists of dark matter and 73% of the universe consists of dark energy.

The universe, it would seem, is filled with unseens. At least, to the limited capabilities of physical eyes. When a cosmologist stares at a clear, night sky, wondering where all the missing energy and matter is in the inky blackness of the depths of space, it would come as a surprise to them if they knew that a clairvoyant - a person who has developed the ability to see subtle energies - sees the same night sky very differently.

It may sound unconventional, even rebellious to tradition, to suggest that a scientist should ask a clairvoyant what they perceive, but it has been done before, and with breakthrough results. For example, in the mid 1800s, one of the top scientists of all time did exactly this. Carl von Reichenbach had heard that clairvoyants can see a subtle energy of which science was unaware. The fact that he, like most people, lacked clairvoyant vision did not deter him. Such a minor complication was not to be an obstacle to his curiosity and his desire to understand this new form of energy.

So, for his experiments, he hired a group of skilled clairvoyants to describe to him what they could see. He cataloged the appearance and behavior of etheric energy, which he called the 'odic force,' around substances such as magnets, crystals, wood and metals.

Today, a cosmologist could, if they dared to be that adventurous, ask a skilled clairvoyant what they see in the clear, night sky. The clairvoyant would report that they see the etheric energies that surge through the universe. To their subtle perception, etheric energy does not appear in the least bit dark. In fact, it glows brightly with the light of its own life energy. To them, the night sky is filled with a brilliant interplay of pure and magical, etheric light.

Etheric energy is one of the three fundamental types of energy in the universe. These three energies are electric, magnetic and etheric. Electric energy operates at a right angle to magnetic energy. The third energy of Creation, etheric energy, operates at yet another right angle to the other two.

Physical matter is made from electromagnetism, which is the interplay of electric and magnetic energies. Etheric matter is quasi-physical, i.e. solid only to the subtle senses, and it is made from etheromagnetism, which is the interplay of etheric and magnetic energies.

Etheric energy and etheric matter are the missing components in today's cosmology. Etheric energy is the mysterious 'dark energy' and etheric matter is the mysterious 'dark matter.' Knowing that it can be seen by the subtle senses certainly makes it a more immediate candidate for study and research.

Just the fact that 'dark' or etheric energy reveals its presence through its gravitational effects implies that its understanding could lead to control over gravity, and the introduction of weightless, high-speed flying vehicles.

The possibilities for research into this fledgling field are almost unlimited. For example, many of Nikola Tesla's experiments involved a strange new form of energy that he called 'cold electricity.' When his experiments are reviewed in the light that cold electricity is none other than etheric energy, then they begin to make a lot more sense. Etheric energy is the third energy of Creation. It is not a form of electricity. Etheric energy and electric energy share the common bond of interacting with magnetic energy. They bring to life the magnetic fabric of space when they intertwine with it to invoke physical electromagnetic energy and quasi-physical etheromagnetic energy.

Spiritual metaphysics provides a head start in understanding the mysteries of the universe. The sooner today's scientists search within for understanding, the sooner the world will see them emerge as the modern-day visionaries of science.

When a deeper understanding of etheric energy is achieved, society will reap many benefits, ranging from powerful healing machines and precise weather control to clean, unlimited energy and travel to the stars.

Marianne Williamson Listen In
We have completed a day of peace. We are now adding to that peace a day of love. Without fear and in that still place where the peace of God resides, we are face to face with his love. We dedicate this day to seeing and hearing with clarity. Let this day belong to love. Let this day belong to God in a wonderful surrender.

Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.

Father, today I would let all things be as You created them, and give Your Son the honor due his sinlessness; the love of brother to his brother and his Friend. Through this I am redeemed. Through this as well the truth will enter where illusions were, light will replace all darkness, and Your Son will know he is as You created him.

A special blessing comes to us today, from Him Who is our Father. Give this day to Him, and there will be no fear today, because the day is given unto love.

Changing Your Outer Reality

The Rebel

     Changing Your Outer Reality      

by Egan Sanders

THINK OF THE UNIVERSE AS A CIRCLE and that you are in the middle of it. Imagine that the vibrations of your consciousness move outward from you – like waves - and then return back to you as experiences and events. Our BETA - beliefs, emotions, thoughts and actions - are the vibrations that are moving out from us - the center of our circle - and then coming back. They are the literal mechanism of creation.

Until you are aware – consciously aware – of your beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and actions, your ability to shape your experience can be limited. The good news is that it is very easy to become aware. You simply observe yourself for nothing is hidden – unless you believe it is hidden.

Two people can be standing right next to each other and experience a completely different reality depending on their beliefs, emotions, and thoughts.

A belief is like a blueprint. It is the plan or pattern to which all the materials needed to flesh it out are drawn. The architect is you. All vibrations are self-perpetuating. Your beliefs are self-perpetuating. An optimist will see the positive and create those circumstances, while a pessimist will naturally vibrate with a critical viewpoint and see the negative in every situation. Two people can be standing right next to each other and experience a completely different reality depending on their beliefs, emotions, and thoughts.

This is the great power that each of us has been given. How are you using it? The universe is impartial. It does not tell you what to believe, think, or feel. If you have a negative thought or feeling, you have the choice to give yourself a positive alternative. In this age of transformation, many people are espousing the idea that we create our reality just with our thoughts. While this idea is valid, we also have to recognize that as human beings we are a package deal of beliefs, emotions, thoughts and actions.

If the goal of many people is to grow, expand, and express their unique potential, it inevitably compels us to work holistically – integrating all the aspects together to rediscover wholeness once again. Although it may seem a contradiction – the higher we reach in consciousness, the more we may encounter unresolved issues, feelings, or thoughts. Things come up to be healed – to reestablish wholeness.

Does it serve us to deny that which we truly feel or think? If we affirm something with a smile, but do not fully feel that it is possible, then the outward result will be mixed. Covering up feelings with positive thoughts may not get to the root of the issue. In fact, it may just build up a stronger charge, which may show up later in a more dramatic form.

Here is a conscious, holistic approach to changing your outer reality by observing and changing your inner reality. These questions are an easy way to first examine what you are putting out into the universe, and then giving yourself a positive alternative. Begin by taking something that is bothering you; a negative thought, an experience or a situation and use the following questions to gain more awareness of how you are using your creative power.

"What would I need to believe in order to be feeling this/experiencing this?"

"What emotion(s) does this belief generate within me? How does the belief make me feel physically? How does it affect my breath?"

"What thought(s) does this emotion(s) generate? What ideas, perspectives and viewpoints come up?"

"What action(s) would these thoughts generate? If I were a person believing, feeling and thinking in this particular way, how would this cause me to act?"

This is owning the belief. This is really looking at the effects it creates. All emotions, thoughts, and feelings are the effect of a belief. These questions may get you in touch with something you have hidden from yourself or bring up emotions that you may not even realize you had. This is step one – seeing what is.

Step two - give yourself a new choice. Ask yourself what would you truly prefer to experience? What is the positive alternative? Take the negative thought, experience, or situation that you used for the above questions, and change the belief to a positive one. Now ask yourself the following questions to align yourself with the positive reality.
"What would I need to believe in order to be experiencing this positive alternative?"

"What emotion(s) does this positive belief generate within me? How does the positive belief make me now feel - physically?"

"What thought(s) does this positive emotion(s) generate? What new ideas, perspectives and viewpoints come up?"

"What action(s) would these positive thoughts generate? If I were a person believing, feeling and thinking in this particular way, how would I act?" Who would you be?"

More than likely you will feel lighter and a greater sense of well being from looking at the positive alternative. If you then focus on the positive alternative, and consistently act the way a person would if they had that positive belief, you will then step into that version of reality.

Too often people do not even question reality or give themselves other possibilities. You hear a negative voice in your mind and surrender to it. Voices are really choices. The truth is you create yourself anew in each and every moment. In each moment you choose who you are and the universe automatically supports you in whatever choice you choose. When you believe - you are choosing your reality, and you always have a choice.
