Spiritual Faith

by Owen K Waters

With spiritual faith, your heart and mind open up and guide you in your search for personal truth. Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

sunsetoverseaFaith may sound like a form of belief, but belief is actually a fixation upon a version of the truth. When a belief becomes rigid, seeking and growth are not possible. For example, the biggest challenge facing quantum physics today is the enormous shift that is required from previous beliefs about the nature of reality. Researchers have to shift to a new view where time, space and physicality are liberated from the constraints which people previously believed that they had.

If you believe that you exist in a fixed location in space and that time must always pass you by like clockwork, think again. Subatomic particles do not share your beliefs about time and space. They take a much more liberated view. Subatomic particles pop in and out of physical manifestation millions of times per second, just when and where they feel like it. Their disregard for time is perplexing, to say the least, as they respond immediately to events in their future and even time travel backwards to alter their past when it suits them.

Now, we can all identify with the idea of creating a different future based on decisions that we make now, but creating a different past? Well, that’s what subatomic particles do, right there in the lab. As a result, in the mathematics of quantum physics today, one of the necessary tools is negative time – the ability of a particle to send a message into its past in order to change its own history.

Subatomic particles are friendly by nature. When they bump into another particle that they take a liking to, and they seem to like all of them, they become friends and carry on communicating with each other, for ever. The fact that they may become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate.

The speed of their communications comes as a surprise. Einstein said that nothing exceeds the speed of light, but apparently subatomic particles weren’t listening when he said that. They communicate over huge distances virtually instantly. If there is a limit to the speed of transmitted thought, then that speed of thought has to be millions of times faster than the speed of light.

Subatomic particles, by their very freedom, serve to remind us of our true potential as conscious beings in a conscious universe. We are limited only by our personal collection of beliefs, our belief system. We also share our part of a larger, societal belief system, the consensus reality.

Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

With spiritual faith – an open heart and an open mind – we can discover more about today’s New Reality and what it means to humanity. Discovering more about life expands our view of reality and evolves our belief systems.

Besides, and this is what really counts, it’s fun!

Do You See Beauty?

by Dreama Vance

Do you see the beauty in life?

Is your heart filled with the glory that shines from living life with joy?

Does peace reside in your heart?

I-Love-LifeI LOVE LIFE!

Yes, it is true that most of us would rather be alive than not, but I am talking about loving LIFE… Life that is bigger than us… Life that runs like a river through everything that we are.

Life that burns as a passion within us. Life that expresses as Nature in every harvest of bounty; in every color of sunset. Life that swirls through the spirals of galaxies and carries the tiny bee on his wings from flower to flower.

This love of Life goes deep into the spirit. It encompasses in a very real way all that is.

It explores new levels of consciousness and carries us to new ways of being.

This love of Life vibrates throughout our being.

Are you living in this joy? Do you see the beauty? Can you recall at least two times this week when you were “zinged” by Cupid’s arrow of Joy or Love of Life?

If this is not happening in your experience at least once or twice a week, then are you Living Life?

Awareness and awakening are happening all the time! Take part! Change your life so that you may experience a heart bursting with this joy and love of life.

It IS possible.

I know because I have been experiencing this for several years now. It is a byproduct of growth. How do you get there? It is the result of two important keys:

1. The willingness to listen, and

2. The determination to change.

These are not necessarily easy, but they are simple.

Many people do not have the ability to hear words of wisdom. At an advanced retreat on Qigong, I almost fell out of my seat laughing when my Chinese teacher jokingly said, “…except for Americans, you can’t tell them anything. They all think they know everything.” I am not so sure it is just Americans, since I have found his words to be true of many.

It takes an intention to come to any teaching with your cup empty. In other words, you must come with the intention to listen and to open your heart to hear the deeper meaning.

One of my favorite spiritual teachers said he never worried about his teachings being too advanced in his books because the ideas would simply fly over the heads of those not ready to hear.

Have you ever picked up a spiritual book, or even any book that challenges the status quo, read a bit and put it down because you thought the writer was an idiot? Then some time later you picked up the book again, devoured it and thought the writer was brilliant?

This has to do with our ability to hear or to listen to what another has to say. We must have the intention to open up to new and different ways of hearing and seeing. At a deeper level we must be willing to grow our beliefs and change.

The determination to change requires action. The type of action is determined by the direction you choose to go.

The choice is always yours…

Choose to Love Life!
