Its been a few months since I have posted anything here. And since life itself is a journey of lessons to be learnt, here is a brief summary of some of the things I had to rethink related to this world we live in.
Jesus teaches - Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
The concept/principle here is taken from the Hermetic teachings - As above so below, as within, so without...on earth as it is in heaven.
The Hermetic teachings are that this reality we see as a physical Maniest reality is only 1-3% of our total reality. The other 97-99% of our total reality is in the Unmanifest, the unseen, the subconscious part of us.
This is something I have been pondering quite a bit.
And what is coming to me is that it is in this Unmanifest part of me that I create my Manifest outer reality. I create this reality by the things I think, the words I speak, the dreams I dream etc.
I then conclude the following. If my outer world is a mess, or in a state of chaos, it is because my Inner reality is in a chaotic state.
I know we dont live in a perfect world. Many people are unemployed, in a state of poverty, in undesired relationships etc....
How do we then sort our lives out? Are you all familiar with the Law of attraction form "The Secret"?
In order for me to sort out my messed up life, I have to go and dig deep within. Look at my emotional baggage. I need to resolve the emotional scars, the hurts, the bitterness, anger and resentments I have accumulated over the years, and forgive and release.
It is a form of spiritual House-cleaning.
I had to sit down and ponder all these hurts and scars. I would visualise each one a s a black balloon, with the issue written on it. Then I would release it and allow it to blow away with the wind.
Once it is gone I would allow myself to feel how it feels to be free from that issue/hurt.
I was contemplating Anger issues recently. How would I deal with a temper that is destructive in my reationships and my life?
I have to accept that within me there is Light as well as Darkness. I am capable of both Goodness as well as Evil. But my challenge lies in being able to control these forces for good within me.
What came to me was that I was to visualize my Anger/Temper as a Monster..Wild and destructive. Then I would speak to this monster and tell it that it is part of me, and we cannot live a good life while this monster is running amok. I cannot exist without it and it cannot exist without me. We have to agree to begin living and working together in harmony and peace and channel that anger into something that we can both benefit from. To continue allowing Anger to run wild, will just destroy not only itself but me too.
Therin lies a powerful Key - the Union of Opposits - Good and Evil/Darkness and Light/Masculine and Feminine energies within united as One...
And in embracing my own inner darkness lovingly, I unite these opposits in Me and I become One.
Jesus prays - Father Make us One just as YOU are One...
This is my prayer too - God make me One just as You are One...
In the Oneness of my duality - my two-fold existence, a new reality dawns for me that transcends this illusion of division and seperateness. This is a powerful way of living. It is Life as we are suppose to live it. In a state of Harmony within.
How do I tell those people in my life about this? Not everyone is ready to receive it. But at least they get to hear it, and hopefully one day the penny will drop...
