Individually, each of us is a group: many components that make up a whole. We have three basic parts, body, mind, and spirit. We were designed to function as a whole. When all three are balanced we are complete within ourselves. As with any group, if one component doesn’t get used the other parts try to compensate for the missing one, we are still a group but, we are not as we were created to be. Intuitively we know something is missing and we look outside of the group hoping to be able to find something on the outside of us to fix the problem. Because we are incomplete, any attempt we make eventually turns out futile, and what we are left with, is an insatiable appetite for more.
Human beings in general make up a larger group, again, many components that make up a whole. In a group, there are no rich, poor, black, white, strong, weak, and there is no age or ethnicity. There are only individual components that make up the whole.
The people in the United States of American is a group within the human group, again, many components that make up a whole. The writers of the Constitution knew this and stated “we hold these truths to be self-evident”. I maintain we lost sight of those self-evident truths.
We look to the government to supply us with these truths and that is not its purpose. We as citizens and individuals have lost our connection to the group called, “we the people”. We have also lost our individual connection to our spirit(our we). We have so overdeveloped and allowed our minds to be our ultimate authority personally and socially that we are even afraid to talk about our spirits. This is not a religious issue.
Personally, I have found in my own life, I lost sight of spiritual principles, or maybe they were never shown to me without being attached to an organization, maybe I mixed up spirit with religion, I don’t know. What I find is that there are absolute truths that I can count on working each and every time, just like gravity. It has been my experience that if I sit quietly for a few minutes, ask my spirit to help me let go of my thoughts, listen as if my life depended on what I hear, it will bring me into the present. Then I can begin a conversation with whosoever is listening when I’m by myself, and ask a question, and I will receive an answer. I then have to take action on that answer.
Once I am connected and in the moment, I feel complete so I’m not in fear of you or any seeming problem that might appear in front of me. When I’m centered in being, I don’t need to “do” anything. My mind is free to be inspired by the spirit and unlimited possibilities exist from that place.
As a species, we human beings have just assumed we are mind-powered, that is, our minds control everything, but that is not the way we were intended to be. Intended by who? By our creator of course! We are spiritual beings, which means we are constantly being given inspiration, but we forgot how to listen, and we lost our connection to the source.
Like everything else in life, I find that there is a logical order form to reconnecting with our source:
1. accept, become aware that we temporarily lost our connection to our source
2. pause, stop all action and get quiet once we become aware
3. ask our creator (knowing never fail) what do we need to, be, see or do, here?
4. receive, what comes without judgement
5. take action, or not, depending on the inspiration we receive
No belief is necessary, only an open mind and the willingness to try it is required. It’s as simple as dropping something. You don’t have to believe it will fall, it just does, because it’s a truth, a principle. But no matter what path you are on these truths need to be applied now. It’s not a one time thing, it’s a way of life!
