We are One

What I Believe

The world happens through you not to you. It is a projection from your own mind. I believe in Karma or what comes around goes around. Said another way, “What you give, you receive”. So working from this imagine a foam upon the sea. This foam is made up of tiny bubbles and each of us is one of the bubbles. We can experience only what is within our bubble. If you think about this you’ll see what I speak of. When you look out into the world do you see yourself surrounded by a box or triangle? No. We see in circles or more accurately spheres. Just like Earth is a sphere so are we! Imagination allows us to see further, but this is not our “reality”. As we all learn early on, imagination is fantasy. It is also the tool we use to expand and move within our bubble.

Perhaps you have been told to look within and know thy self. The world outside your bubble is not you it is other self or simply other. The sea represents All there is or as many call it, God. The foam is temporary, coming and going with the tides. When our bubble breaks it rejoins the sea no worse the wear. So when I go with the flow… I take that quite literally. My bubble is mine and yours is yours, we cannot know each others bubble. This is the essence of ego mind. What I describe here is ego mind. There are two minds in a dualistic world, Ego and God or Spirit. If you wonder about the soul it is part of the ego mind, not God. The ego mind believes it is separate from God, but it is just a foam on the sea. Not separate at all. Any individual identity is of the ego, a bubble of foam. Since the Universe is a large place our bubbles can be quite large in relation to Earth or they can be as tiny as the room you occupy. It is still just a bubble. We each have a choice to make in this life. Are we the bubble or the sea? The choice arises often and the more we choose the sea the closer our experience moves in that direction. Ultimately though we all return to the sea since this is all there is, but not until we choose it (The Law of One/Free Will). The good news is we are One and Jesus (I am) has already chosen the sea.

Imagination Leads to Creation

In developing a Spiritual practice there are several tools that are instrumental in creating an open space for growth.  The one I use most is creative visualization and I recommend Shakti Gwain’s book with the same title.  I will summarize here so that you can get an idea of how to use this tool. 

By tapping into the power of the imagination and creating a vision of that which you desire, the door of creation is opened.  Say you need a new car and so you are visualizing the new car you are desiring, make the vision as real as you can by seeing the shiny gold paint and sleek styling, feeling the soft leather seats and firm steering wheel, and smelling the new car smell and the fresh air blowing in the window as you are driving down a deserted country road.  The more real you make the experience the stronger your emotion of joy becomes and the greater the probability of the experience manifesting.  Put no limits on the manifestation of this experience, simply hold the feeling of knowing that it is true.  Don’t forget to take the actions which will make it reality.  Remember, thoughts, words, and action!

The technique can be used for anything and for instance I used this method to assist my transition from male to female.  I still use it often by visualizing my body as I know it is.  I can feel my womb and visualize the rams horns which make up my internal sex organs; the coiled ovaries (the ram horns), the head of the ram (my uterus), and below this the mouth of the ram (my vagina)!  I visualize this as often as I remember and it helps to set up a schedule for meditation at least once a day.  Use this technique with every aspect of transition, voice, breasts, hair, face, etc. 

To energize the visualization place yourself in society interacting with others and if you are so inclined creative visualization works very well in loving relationships and sexual encounters.  How many times have you been making love and think of someone else?  What happens to this relationship down the road?  Be careful how you use visualization and intend that it be in the Highest and Best good of yourself, your partner and everyone everywhere. 

The secret to making this work is to ignore what appears to be true and know without a doubt that which is true!  Reason with yourself if you like and explain to yourself why you know this is true.  When you have a deep experience that pleases you greatly, use your memory to revisit this experience over and over.  These are each tools of the mind; imagination, perception, will, reason, memory and intuition.  Consider how you use these six tools of the mind and be aware of the possibilities!  If we only realized just how powerful we are in creating the life we desire, the world would be a much more joyous place.

Unity in Gender Diversity

Leave a comment »

What if?

What if no one had any gender at all?  We would still be exactly as we are now, but gender would not be a trait.  Sex would still exist.  We would still love one another and have intimate relationships, just without any gender attachments.  There would be no taboos or societal constructs as to moral behavior. 

There would be only one rule, Do no harm.  This is much like the Hippocratic oath, and since this is the only rule, easier to follow.  Another way to think of this rule is “do onto others as you would have done onto you”.  Yes, the Golden Rule is the only rule we need. 

Each person is treated like an equal, no matter what their age, sex, gender identity, race, nationality, abilities, health, religion, behavior, or intelligence.  Just imagine equality!  Complete equality, but also complete diversity.  No two people, animals, places or things are the same.  Some are similar but none are the same.  What would life be like?  Is this truly what we desire?  Why is this not the reality now? Or is it? 

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.” Albert Einstein 

The process of dreaming is how our lives are created.  Think back over all the dreams you have had.  Now consider which ones have manifest?  Did these dreams serve your highest good?  This may be why they have not manifest.  The dreams that are in the Highest and Best good of everyone are the ones that materialize.

 Nothing happens unless first we dream.” Carl Sanberg

I am inviting you to dream of the life you wish to be living right now.  Why aren’t you living it?  Consider the possibility that you are living the life of your dreams, only you have not been dreaming very big.  Let go and Let God.

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” Carl Sagan

Dream within A Dream

What is your vision?  I listened to a great talk last night by Jean Houston and what I learned is that it is our myth that creates our future.  Without a creative vision for how life can be more enjoyable for all then nothing changes or more accurately our past becomes our future because without new material the movie just repeats! 

This is the power of the movies, they provide us with a visual of a possible future or past.  Of course you know the past is no more permanent than the future, right?  Let’s save the time discussion for later.  All movies started as a written story first even if it was just the director doing a story board.  And of course the written story was only an idea to start with.  The process of creation is thoughts, words and action and this is how we get movies and our very lives! 

We see movies as fiction and our lives as reality which works for now, but someday this could be a way of creating reality.  We have seen this in the Sci-Fi movies like “Total Recall”, “The 6th Day” and “Star Trek”, I just love the holodeck!  There is a program online now called SecondLife and basically the user constructs their own version of reality and then lives within this reality chatting with friends all over the world, making things, sharing things, flying, teleporting, and all sorts of awesome and fun things.

Does this reality affect our physical reality?  From my experience it most certainly does.  I find it amazing how our worlds are interconnected and by using my imagination in SecondLife gives fuel to changes in my “first” life.  I hesitate to use the word “real” life here since I am not so sure that one life is any more real than the next. 

You may have heard the phrase, a dream within a dream, which is the title for a great Edgar Alan Poe poem, but this does describe life pretty well I think.  “The Matrix” movie illustrates this dream within a dream concept nicely too.  So how do we create our lives or is the question, “who is driving this bus?” more appropriate?  Remember that we each create our lives with thought, words and action, so Yes we are driving our own buses!  Another movie that illustrates this nicely is “What Dreams May Come”.  Where we get a glimpse of Heaven and what that is all about.  What would your Heaven look like?  The possibilities are infinite so let go today and dream a little dream within a dream, lol.
