The more we progress on the spiritual path the more we realize that for every step we take to accomplish our goals, God and the Universe will take two. This can be tested and proven in our world. For this reason the great ones throughout time have employed us to simply do our best and not worry about the outcome, especially if the situation looks very difficult.
If we are truly and sincerely doing our best in our endevours, and don’t look back, just keep working on the task, without fear or worry, the Universe will step in and bring just the right people, ideas, and circumstances into play to help us along.
Doing our best not only includes all our outside efforts along the way to our goal, it also refers to going within and meditating and keeping our mind on the magic and beauty of this world. This part of doing our best helps us to move beyond our ego based thoughts ideas and methods. It also helps us experience more peace in order to allow the rest, the providence, divine action to occur.
Once I get the lesson the karma is transcended
As I get the message this changes the dream
When I really get it I will be one
It’s peace and love do you really hear me?
I created this you created that
All for the lesson you and I are one
I want to understand I must dive deeper
To the all knowing place the knowledge of the dream
When the knowledge comes it floods like an ocean
It’s new it’s magical life will be different
I see the flower garden I see the blue land
When I come back It’s a whole new dream!
In my favorite Deep Space Nine episode, the main character is a man who is an african american novelist. He is writing about the adventures of a nation on a tremendous space ship of which the captain is a black man. Everyone he shops the story to loves the story, but feels it is unrealistic that this black man is the captain. Inspite or this, our hero, the novelist, refuses to change the main character’s race, insisting that this man and these people are real. In his mind they have become real to him. He later passes out in sheer frustration as he is arguing about it. To his surprise, he awakens as the captain of this great starship, being told “You have traveled the road of the prophets!”
I have found that when I write poems, or a book, whatever the subject matter is, shows up in my world and becomes my life. All that concentration, editing, thinking, etc. attracts similar situations in my life for me to live out. I have had the same thing occur when I watch a lot of movies of a certain type. This way of moving into a new world by immersing our mind in it is “the road of the prophets.” It is a wonderful secret on the meditation path. We become what we think about, speak about, and focus our minds on.
If you have a life you want to experience, Throw yourself in that type of atmosphere. Dive into it totally. Build on it more and more, and don’t stop. Make it real in your mind and in your world. You will be surprised at the results.
Quite often Mr. Ambrister would say this just prior to meditation. “If Thy eye be single thy whole being will be filled with light.” In time I began to realize that this statement is quite true.
When our focus is on the oneness and beauty of the Universe, and our attention is collected in the eyebrow center during the meditation process, our mind is off the cares of the world and our vision becomes single, focused, no longer scattered. At this point we move into a state of oneness, feeling at one with everyone and everything. During this experience we can at times see and feel light throughout our entire body.
This process brings about healing and changes in body, mind, and soul. Sometimes curing ailments of the body, and other times helping us to see situations with a whole new perspective. At times we can even feel ourselves being one with the light, feeling a strength power and sense of peace that is beyond description.
Again we can move into this state by a combination of seeing and looking for the good in all situations, and by practicing the meditation.
