The world is not as it seems and it is changing rapidly each day. Seeking the truth is a lifelong endeavor. This unique experience with COVID-19 is a psychological war we are all involved generating positive and negative energies. Positive thoughts are of love , compassion, helping others, being grateful and appreciative for the opportunity to have this experience; On the other hand negative thoughts are filled with fear, anger, greed, hate and thinking only of yourself. This is our school and the reason we are here; to learn the ways of love and wisdom. We are essentially learning how to love and play well with each others.
It is not the world that needs work. It is not the others that need change. The only area that needs work is ourselves. We all have free-will to work, to hope, to dream and to walk that spiritual path in our own way. There are many paths leading to the same destination and the best teacher is the love and wisdom within.
There are many lessons that can be taken from COVID-19 pandemic, but perhaps the first and foremost is the lesson of love. Love is the greatest and most powerful emotion; difficult to understand, much less describe. Perhaps it can be explained as divine energy radiating in all things. It is said, love conquers all and some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. We are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. We can see how easy it is to control the masses through media and how we are taking part, and involved in a psychological warfare of fear.
From a spiritual perspective, it can be used as a catalyst for those to decide who they really are, positive or negative. Ask yourself, are you living in fear, despair and hate or in love and compassion while helping others cope? People of all walks of life, regardless of belief system including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, are all one people living on earth to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Perhaps this is our time to unite and support one another instead of spewing hate and discontent. We have all heard of patience and lack of; this is the time for calm and patience and not let the unruly mind take control, and certainly not to believe everything you hear.
Love is what our ancient teachers have been trying to convey to us for centuries. The ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu said “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself” while Buddha tells us “When you see yourself in others, it is impossible to hurt anyone else.” Krishna said “to Me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to Me than another.” and of course Jesus tells us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
There are 7.7 billion of us on this planet and within each is a Divine Power waiting to be awaken. Most disregard this concept simply because it is not something the five senses nor scientific evidence can detect. Our emotions, feelings and thoughts create our reality more than we will ever realized until now. Consider the COVID-19 as a humanity reset and now is the time to practice Love. Consider we are all one and how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating and generating the global consciousness. We have free-will to choose love or fear.
God just sent us all to our rooms!!! We are living in a historical moment that is providing many lessons and one lesson should be the world is not as it seems and our physical and spiritual worlds are inseparable. Another lesson is how easy it is to control the masses through media. We are all taking part and involved in a psychological warfare. Call it good vs evil, or positive vs negative, we are all pawns in a game of chess. The COVID-19 is a tool being used for control. It does not matter what religion or political party you are affiliated with, this affects humanity as a whole all over the world.
It is not the pandemic that will define us, but how we treat each other. Will we define humanity through love and compassion, or allow the pandemic to define us with fear and hate. What we think is what we become. It is a personal choice for each to decide to trust that there is something greater than ourselves; or allow the negative emotions take control. God works in mysterious ways and may even work through those we believe are unworthy.
From a spiritual perspective, it can be used as a catalyst for those to decide who they really are, or what they want to be, either positive or negative. Ask yourself, are you living in fear, despair and hate or in love and compassion while helping others. People of all walks of life, regardless of belief system including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, we are all one people living on earth to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Perhaps this is our time to unite and support one another instead of living in fear, spewing hate and discontent.
God dwells in each of us, closer than your heartbeat also known as Infinite Intelligence; All you have to do is pause, take a breath and smell the roses. Slow the mind and connect in your own way. Contemplation, meditation and prayer can provide the gateway to reach the divine.
The COVID-19 has slowed people down all over the world and we can see Mother Earth heal before our very eyes. The streets of Italy has all but ceased, but Italians aren’t letting fear of this pandemic keep them from one of the simplest joys in life, music. During this same time Air pollution has dropped in Italy and other places in Europe.
In China carbon dioxide levels have dropped drastically showing show Mother Earth is repairing herself because businesses, cars and planes are minimizing the pollutants they create.
Water in Venice canals goes crystal clear amidst coronavirus lockdown
These are just a few examples how the earth is healing since God sent us to our room in a very short time.
Perhaps the quarantine is a way for us to take time and reflect how our presence affects not only those around us but the planet as a whole. We have come to a pivotal moment in our spiritual evolution human. We have been sent to our room for a reason; to contemplate how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating our reality, especially doing psychological warfare. Are your creating a reality of Love, compassion and helping others, taking care of Mother Earth or hate, greed and control of others, while destroying the planet for profit. Only you will find the answers; look within your for the answers, Infinite Intelligences is right there all you have to do is listen. You are the only one than make those decisions.
There are groups that are working on consciousness and healing practices. One such group is called Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI). It is an international group of scientists, health practitioners, innovators, educators, and artists, who forward the transdisciplinary science and real-world application of consciousness and healing practices. Unfortunately you will see it in the mainstream media any time soon, but it is the new medical frontier; self healing.
Another pioneer was the late Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California. She confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains.
Dr Joe Dispenza, is another researcher who healed himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back after being told he would never walk again. Through meditation, visualizations and his belief system, after nine and a half weeks after the accident, he got up and walked, without having any body cast or any surgeries.
Self healing is available to all. It is a process of bringing balance to the body, mind and spirit. It starts being aware of our thoughts, emotions and actions. Over time negative thoughts adversely affects our relationships; our spiritual evolution; and our health. Excessive negative thoughts can lead to severe anxiety or clinical depression, rebellion, and in extreme cases lead to self-harm or even harming others. We are all human but just by being mindful and aware of your thought will begin to bring you into balance. Consider Dr. Hunt’s discover of the Bio field and how that interacts with your emotions and health, perhaps called the Holy spirit by religions. Think and focus your intention on healing during meditation and study Dr Dispenza programs that are available on youtube. Integrate food in your diet that will help your body heal.
Until funding is allocated to mainstream research you will find small groups like CHI working with and understanding energy healing. It starts with you by balancing the entire body, mind and spirit until energy healing becomes mainstream.
As we increase our understanding of our true nature, we begin to realize there is a Source, a Universal Intelligence of pure divine energy, that connects us all. Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information, both putative and subtle, that regulates the homeodynamic function of living organisms and may play a substantial role in understanding and guiding health processes.” Science also tells us that the heart electromagnetic energy field be detected and measured several feet from the body.
More recently, Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains., all you have to do is realize the power within you.
The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while while Taoist refer to chi or qi and the Dao or the way. Hindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The words is virya, and it means vitality, or life energy.
Consider all the different labels of this divine energy by science and religion the same. When we realize we are co-creators by our thoughts, emotions and actions then the healing process can begin.
We are all subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during recurring negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We know the Law of Karma, we reap what we sow. The body is affected by bacteria, virus and an array of toxins in our foods and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing. Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.
Chakras are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages in these energy centers and connect to the quantum field. Energy flows with love. When we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others and are mindful of our thoughts, emotions and actions, the healing process will begin. Prayer, meditation, contemplation and gratitude is part of the healing process.
Jesus message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe his message of love and enlightenment and look within ourselves to find the answers. In John 14:12 when Jesus said “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
To know yourself may be the most important aspect of any spiritual journey. Our lives are so connected to families, friends and our jobs, living in the physical world of media, religion, governments, corporations, banks and education. We are living it everyday, all day, week after week, month after month, year after year. Then one day there is a feeling, “is this it”, and a desire to want to “know the truth”. Who are we really, why are we here, where are we going. It becomes a lifetime endeavor of seeking the truth and to know our true-selves.
Self awareness can simply be aware of your thoughts, emotions and actions moment by moment and understanding the world around you. Realizing we live in the inseparable physical and metaphysical worlds and the world is not as it seems can be helpful. There is a vibrating constant energetic motion within all things, we can call Universal Intelligence, or God.
According to the Law of One, the mind must be known to itself and this is perhaps the most demanding part of self awareness. If the mind knows itself then the most important aspect of of self awareness has occurred as consciousness is the microcosm of the Oneness. In other words, the macrocosmic intelligence which guides the birth and processes of the universe is reflected on a microcosmic scale in each individual being. As energetic beings, we are radiating positive and negative energy by our thoughts, emotions and actions, creating our reality with all its distortions and confusion. Our goal is to learn and have balance between love and wisdom.
Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas “When you (plur.) make the two one and make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below, and that you might make the male and the female be one and the same, so that the male might not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye and a hand in place of a hand and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image – then you will enter [the kingdom].”
Saying 22 of the Gospel states most vividly and fully the recurrent theme. Jesus sees infants being suckled. He tells his disciples that these infants are like those who enter the kingdom. “Shall we then,” they ask, “as children, enter the kingdom?” This prologue calls to mind, of course, the familiar saying from the canon: “Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
To know yourself is the same message Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Krishna and many others have been trying to tell us through the centuries. Lao Tzu tells us “Wisdom come from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened”. In the dialogue of the Savior Jesus said “Those who have truly found the Self within recognized that it exists everywhere.” Buddha added, “Everyone has recognized the self-ones essential nature. But few have realized it.”
We all have the divine gift of discernment, the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment. In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between the worldly and the spiritual.
Each individual is responsible for their own awakening by whatever means they deem appropriate. Spirituality is understanding and loving the One by loving yourself, loving others, nature and helping others. Meditation, contemplation and prayer, are the gateway to Infinite Intelligence. Being aware of your thoughts, emotions and actions, moment by moment, then analyze your own character, feelings, motives, and desires may be a good start to anyone’s self awareness.
Heart and mind are of gratitude, appreciation and love for the Oneness of the Creator. In meditation, choose to channel infinite love which does not fail. The more contact with this infinite love, the more infinite love is manifested, adding to being-ness, which the Creator shall see, bless and amplify. Be the love and light.
The basic fundamentals are taming the unruly mind and being mindful of our thoughts, speech and actions. While as much as possible, avoid destructive ways of thought, speech and actions while cultivating positive and constructive ways of thought, speech and actions. This requires taming the mind, by ridding it of confusion about reality and about behavioral cause and effect.
Buddha teachings are; Commit not anything negative at all; splendidly enact what is constructive; fully subdue your own mind.
Negative means something self-destructive, something that causes problems and unhappiness to others. Splendidly enact what is constructive means something that brings about positivity and happiness for all.
Meditation is the tool to fully subdue your mind. Meditation is a natural relaxation state of the mind. The proper way to meditate is just start, developing a practice over time. Do what works for you. Sitting in a chair or floor with good posture, close your eyes, take 5–10 slow deep breaths, following your breath. Your relaxing your mind so try not to think of anything. Just focus on a point in the front of eyes. You will find your thoughts drifting to problems just bring the focus back to the point in front of the eyes. The time you meditate is up to you.
The above describes the first step of Dzogchen,an esoteric tradition of teachings considered to be the highest and most definitive path to enlightenment by Tibetan Buddhism, known for the Rainbow Body. Buddha found enlightenment with the breath sitting under a tree. So with the will and wisdom, dzogchen becomes an incredibly profound and effective method for achieving enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. The fundamentals of Dzogchen meditation can be found here, and even may be the most powerful meditation technique.
Is it contradictory to accept reality and yet visualize for a better world? The acceptance of reality is just that, accepting what is currently occurring, visualization is for what is to come.
We worry constantly about what is happening, what may or may not happen. It is prudent to our own psychological well being as well as our spiritual growth to accept our reality as it comes to fruition, as this acceptance can bring peace to our psyche. I believe when we begin to accept reality as it is, it actually empowers us to change the reality of our world. Rather than looking at anything negative that we believe is our reality, if we find the love in it – the silver lining, then our reality begins to change. Our reality serves as a catalyst for our spiritual growth to teach us the ways of unconditional love. When we accept our reality, we begin to understand our purpose and role in this life.
Visualization through meditation is the practice of seeing and listening through the heart.
It’s one of the paths of making the mind and heart one. Studies have found that the human mind does not distinguish the difference between our own experience and that of which we experience through our eyes or dreams. Therefore; simply watching a program or playing a video game in which our body begins to react to our thoughts, our mind believes we are actually experiencing the event. The saying is we become what we think, our thoughts can and do create our reality. Every thought is a form of energy, we send that energy out into the world and it begins to manifest. Visualizing positive thoughts through the heart makes a direct connection to the mind increasing the intensity of our thoughts, sending positive energy out into our world and universe.
Visualization however, requires more than just the act of love through the heart and sight through the mind’s eye, it also requires a complete faith and trust of oneself.
