I wrote on this topic several years ago, and you can read that here.
Yet, I continue to catch myself in little moments where, whether I’m saying anything aloud or not, internally, I’m sensing a little argument going on. In WildFit, Eric Edmeades calls it the little conversation between the “food angel” and the “food devil.” I don’t believe in a devil, so I don’t use those terms, but I do catch my mind chatter–as I’m a mindful type–so I pick up on the inner turmoil of fussing, finding fault (with myself more than others), arguing, criticizing, and negative self talk.
I know, that in all of my inner chatter, what I’m actually doing is plucking the strings of the Unified Field. Ha!
Something is manifesting while I’m having this inner conversation. I may not know it yet, but I’m becoming aware of what is already going to be!
I’m learning that I never “get anywhere” positive with myself when I’m always beating myself up–mentally.
I’m not perfect. No one is. But I am doing the best I can. And thrilled if you acknowledge my growth.
I’ve been aware of my intentions, yet ignoring my Source whom always walks within me.
Mixed signals (frequencies, vibes, etc.)
Arguing with myself (and allowing that rambling internal dialog), limits me (limits my intentions) and puts me in a flux state, vibrationally speaking. It sends out negative vibes too, and probably even shows up on my face. (I’ve never had a good “poker face.”) I’m not perfect. Nor do I think anyone is. Yet, for some reason, I still hold myself to some “high standard.” Ugh. It’s also got to be a drag on my Energy.
Thus, I’ll restate my intentions as:
My daily mission: to consistently and joyfully mind my Energy, pluck the strings of the Unified Field of what I want to manifest in my reality, manage the contrast between things that frustrate me (like a pebble in my shoe), which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual yet earthbound experience, and reach for better feeling thoughts to allow my body to breathe and BE more in a state of ease, remaining open to receive ALL of the divine blessings Omniscience wants to give me.
I want to always walk by faith. I always want to BE conscious in every present moment. I’ve glimpsed it, so I know that we walk in the light and are never alone.
Be in God’s Energy. Sense the Presence of Omniscience. Blessed BE.
Thoughts on Limitless Creator Source God Divine Infinite Intelligence
I attended a Mind Body Spirit expo in Sarasota and met a Tibetan Monk who studied under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (you may have heard of him, as he’s written many books).
I was drawn to the monks’ energy, presence, and humility. I attended his talk, which was well received. And I bought two of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s CDs, so I could listen and discover new and deeper spiritual understandings.
I bought, “Eight Steps to Happiness” and “How to Solve Our Human Problems” and I have finally, completed my study of each set. Then, for Christmas, I gave my son and daughter-in-law the “Eight Steps…” and my dad the “…Human Problems” CDs. For more information about the monk I met, and where he practices, visit the Kadampa Meditation Center here.
I watched the movie Grounded, and gave several copies of it away too! (Click on the word Grounded to watch it on YouTube). The importance of earthing and grounding really resonate with me, not just for health and vitality, but to honestly connect with our Earth too! Nature can explain our Limitless Creator Source so beautifully, even so a child can understand.
I went to a special meeting at the Dao temple. At the time, I felt disconcerted about the stealthy way I had been invited. I had not been given much information with which to make an educated decision about going. Had I not been in my head so much, questioning everything, I may have simply relaxed, appreciated, and enjoyed the service more.
I prefer to know a little bit about a religion / faith before attending, bowing, or worshiping.
I was told the Daoist ceremony was only a ceremonial blessing (receiving Dao), however I came away with a birth certificate!
As I feel our Limitless Creator Source is in all and through all–thus, can pervade any tradition or affiliation, I can always enjoy and stay open to receive all the good things of God and not judge them, versus people who find it difficult to attend other faiths because they are locked into one way.
Spiral thought: I invited a friend (who is an Energy Medicine doc) to attend the Dao ceremony with me at Shien Deh Temple and she had not known the temple was there (about 45 minutes to an hour drive from where she lived)! She was sooo excited to come to know of it, and shocked really, to learn of it through me! ❤️🦋🌀🙏☯️
What is really going on?
All any of us are really doing is ascribing human attributes onto a Creator we cannot (yet, if ever) fully understand.
How does a Buddhist monk, the natural practice of Grounding, and a Daoist ceremony tie together?
These are just a few of the new experiences I’ve had, which bolster my belief that God is vast and expansive. Much too vast for humans with limited intellect to comprehend.
I am all about Connecting to an Ever-Living Limitless God, who will use Buddha, Jesus Christ, or my dog (yes well sort of, whatever it takes) to reach us, to meet people “where they are” and bring them back to knowing their true essence, “who they really are.” I do not believe there is only ONE way. I have never believed that. I have never condemned another based on a religious belief.
Hedging my bets?
Some might say that I hedged my spiritual bets years ago by being “saved” or “born again,” because I was baptized twice (one of those times in the ocean–it was beautiful, and once in church), and now, blessed with a birth certificate from the Dao temple.
I believe we all have the ability to know, and connect with our Source, and in our quiet moments, Creator can speak to us–and we can FEEL it. This is the reason I love meditation.
I don’t feel that any one person’s Connection to the Divine, or Infinite Intelligence is stronger than anyone else’s CAN be (with much mindfulness and meditation / prayer / acknowledging Spirit), though with practice, the person may connect quicker. But the invitation is the same for ALL. As we are ALL children of the Limitless Omni-Everything Creator.
Everything is Energy
Each of us pulsate Source Energy at different frequencies. And Everything in the universe vibrates–yes, all physical atoms are vortices of energy, constantly spinning/vibrating, each emanating a unique energy signature. (Read any physics books by Niels Bohr.)
I have intimately struggled with so-called “religious beliefs” because of my RLDS upbringing, Native American ancestry (my mother and my maternal grandmother had healing gifts), and close Baptist friend I sang with (in different churches) when we were young.
I believe our bodies are our temple and we do not need a church or temple building in which to come to know or worship God
I do not believe in dogma, it can be a guide but can also be misused if taken too seriously or followed rigidly
I do not believe in statues or icons (but open to understand they may be used as a reminder)
I know books translated into many languages can have errors and that words do not always convey intentions or the intended thoughts
I think killing people (especially in the name of any religion) is ludicrous, immoral, and irreverent
I have written about my beliefs along the way, but I don’t think I’ve ever written it out quite this cut and dry before.
I do believe God has a GREAT sense of humor and most of us (definitely me) take ourselves way too seriously! No one has the Mind of God.
I think Omni-potent God created us to show himself without ego. If God showed us himself He would be in EGO.
Think of it this way, I wrote a book and it has a picture of me on the back cover. In that photo, I am showing you my ego self, as the author. If instead, I show you only the front cover of the book (of what I created), I am not in ego, I am just celebrating my creation!
God celebrates His creation of each of us – everyday!
So, I tend to hold teachers, preachers, evangelists, and the like to a higher standard, because I hold myself in such a place of integrity (because of my beliefs of our Limitless Omniscient Source). However, this year, I’ve learned that because I hold myself to such a high standard/integrity, it very well might be a limiting belief, and causes me to feel bad when others let me down.
Why do I feel people should be perfect?
Why put anyone on a pedestal?
I’ve said many times, “Christians should be held to a higher standard.” And every time I’ve felt that way, it’s caused me to feel bad, anxious, irritated, frustrated, angry, etc.
I choose to let go of that limiting belief.
Letting go to feel better
Now, I replace thoughts about someone’s lack of “integrity,” with thoughts like, “everyone is doing the best they can” and “nobody’s perfect,” so I can radiate compassion, unconditional love, and bloom in the knowing that we are ALL “God’s children.”
Ah, that feels so much better! And my only job is to reach for these kinds of better feeling thoughts, in any moment of the day, when I begin to judge someone’s vibes, facial features, body language, words, tone, or actions.
We Are All Connected. OM
Many blessings to you in ALL ways.
A bit about me:
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, available on Amazon.
My previous post was about living a joyous life in balance. Ah, bliss. And it should be so easy, right? Eh, well not exactly.
People limit themselves everyday. We fuss, nag, find fault, argue, criticize, and blah, blah, blah… So, why do I censor or limit myself in conversations? Isn’t it obvious?
I limit my words, uh many times even my thoughts, because someone was critical of me in the past. Maybe a parent, teacher, coach, boss, or authority figure – that is unimportant. It doesn’t matter whom. The point is – we humans like to limit things. We like to label things. People will tell you, “don’t worry or care what people think”… but then mysteriously those same folks – usually within the same conversation – will say something that carries the essence of, “be careful, don’t say too much, don’t tell him or her this or that.”
I give you this fact. Many people have good intentions. They want to protect you somehow. Protect you from saying too much so you won’t get into trouble. Hmm. But isn’t that their problem?
Censoring myself, limits me and puts me in a flux state, vibrationally speaking.
I get nervous. I get flustered. My face may even get red. I end up with a mindful of clutter!
Yet, all I can ever truly be – is myself. Like me or not. Care or not.
I make mistakes, I learn, I fall, I get up, I cry, I love, I give, I receive. I am vulnerable. I am not superwoman – and I don’t really think anyone else is superman or superwoman either.
If I, being of noble purpose, believe I have something to share, begin to open my mouth but then my mind jumps to thoughts like, “Oh, they don’t want to know, they don’t care” that’s enough to stop me dead in my tracks. Why? Because no one wants to be judged or condemned. We all want to be liked! If we didn’t want people to like us, we’d never go out, we’d never join with others in any social situation. We’d sit alone day! Ha! But then a strange thing would happen. The ones we thought would judge us would be the very ones who would say, “come on, get out and be a joiner”! Do you get the irony in this?
You can’t get it wrong
So really, you can’t get it wrong. Just be. Be yourself. Without limitations.
Labels and beliefs
Even my feeble attempt to list all the names (why must humans LABEL everything?) that humans ascribe to the LIMITLESS Filling-All-Space Creator I honor causes me to scratch my head, analyze, and scrutinize. How do I order this list? Ugh! My mind goes to a place of judgement… I know someone won’t like that I’m including names of: Mother Father, Allah, Buddha, or Zen. All this judgment and it feels so heavy. But God is love, and I almost can’t think of any other all consuming love (at least not in my human form) better than a mother or father (or grandparent) can give to a child – so for me, calling God as Mother Father feels so good, so comforting, so forgiving, and so full of grace. Ohh I am so saved. So loved. I am not perfect but I am so very, wholly, LOVED!
All the various beliefs we hold, many are so personal, so deeply entrenched within us, that putting the names into the same article, or list, will be judged, labeled, and so on! Go on, that’s fine. You’re not perfect either! But you are worthy. You are loved. 😉 Obviously human beings cannot agree, most cannot even discuss these Holy names for God – there is no consensus and certainly there are multitudes of faiths, religions, and many, many wars have been fought, with untold millions of lives lost due to the very notion / belief that one of these names, carry more importance, than the others. But names are only words. Words must be defined to carry any meaning to anyone. Period. If I AM (right now in the present moment) aware of, consciously tuned to:
The names of God
Jesus the Christ
Mother / Father
Blessed Being (each individual)
Ahura Mazda(Wise Lord)
Alpha and Omega
The Beginning and The End
The One Who Goes By Many Names
“There are many names for the source of knowledge—the Absolute, the Cosmic, God, the Divine Spirit, the Transcendent —yet the concept is one; it is the Universal Manifestation, the Spiritual Essence, that pervades all things. And, it is this entity, this Universal Oneness, that the mystic seeks to know.”
Why do we limit the Limitless, Ever-Living, Filling-ALL-Space, Creator God?
And then, why, would I EVER limit myself???
There are NO limitations!!!
There is good all around
Let us not lie to ourselves! There’s so much GOOD going on and I’m tuned in!
People are friendly. People smile. People are kind and do good things for each other.
I see beauty EVERYWHERE and everything is working together for our good! Everything occurs in perfect timing in accordance with the order of life, of God. We are all connectedin so many direct and subtle ways. How can anyone deny it? We live in a field of INFINITE possibilities. Get over your lack mentality.
Resonate, vibrate, tune yourself to the POWER and knowledge YOU are who you are meant to be. Quit resisting! Resisting your true beautiful, whole, powerful nature is the same as putting a clamp on a water hose. Just let God’s love and power flow through you always. 😉
I am a spiritual being having an earthly experience and so are YOU! Be real with yourself. I love to help others awaken. I’ve got so much to share!
Bloom where you’re planted. I am! Since I love teaching, sharing, and writing – here’s my expression. Each post is a bloom on the flower of my life.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth came to enlighten us. He came to show us that we’re energy. He showed us how to live in the full awareness of how to live in our wellness and wholeness. Be it now.
To be something means, you are “being.” You are a human being. Being means vibration, pulsing, activating, acting as if, and exercising your faith! Jesus did not look upon illness or dis-ease, He saw us in our whole (Holy) state of being. Go to the scriptures and read the miracles again. Jesus healed a man who had been born blind. It is written Jesus put mud on the man’s eyes. Then you know what? Jesus instructed the man to go to the river and wash! The blind man was healed by putting his faith into action. Yes, “your faith has made you whole.”
If you need encouragement and upliftment today quietly say to yourself or out loud with boldness…
With every breath, God
With every heartbeat, God
I am who and where God is
God is with me
I am never ever alone
Alone is a lie
Alone has been misrepresented
Alone has been ill-defined
I know God is with me
I align myself with Source
I Am Creative Energy
Then say with your most open heart: “Thank You” as a child says, thank you. God knows. For some beautiful worship check out:Rev. Michael Beckwith
My daily mission: to consistently and joyfully manage the contrast between things that frustrate me (like a pebble in my shoe), which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual yet earthbound experience, and reach for better feeling thoughts, keeping my body at ease, allowing myself to receive the divine blessings God has in store for me.
In other words: To be joyfully aware of LIMITLESS, Ever-Living, Filling-All-Space Creator in every present moment. To me, this is the sum total of living a blessed, blissful, joyous, and happy life – everyday no matter what the circumstances.
Always remember we walk by faith. Be conscious every present moment. We walk in the light and are never alone.
To those who question if God is Energy, I would ask them, “What is Spirit”?
What is the essence of God? Isn’t it enough to be thankful that we have mind enough to ponder that? To simply BE. Be in God’s Energy.
