Trust In The Non Tangible

This week, I have been pondering the idea of trust. Why is it sometimes difficult to allow the benevolent energy within life to guide and take care of us, or our loved ones? Is it because it is invisible, non tangible? It is hard to argue that there is not an Intelligence and energy behind and guiding nature. Seasons come and go, the sun sets and rises each day, whether we see it or not. Birds, fish and animals seem to know when to migrate, hibernate or grow thicker coats. Tiny acorns grow into mighty oak trees. When Hiroshima was bombed, scientists believed it would be 10-20 years before anything would grow. Ten days later a flower bloomed within a crater.
Like nature there is an invisible energy living through us. Our physical bodies functions pretty well without our help. We don’t need to think about making our heart beat. Without effort, our lungs provide us with air, cuts and bones heal, and our immune system keeps us healthy when we cooperate… for as long as we are meant to live.
Within our MIND, beneath our busy, worried thinking and need to control, this same Intelligence and energy is there to guide us. This invisible power shows up as insight, moments of clarity, and new ways of seeing.
It seems easy to trust an invisible power to run our bodily functions. It seems easy to trust the invisible power behind a money transfer when we bank online and press the “confirm” button.
The next time you catch yourself in worried or fearful thinking, why not trust…that although you may not know what to do, something deep within you does.

Understanding Brings Freedom….The Secret Lies Within  

A Simple Sioux Parable ~ The Creator gathered all of Creation and said; “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality.”

The eagle said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.” The salmon said, “give it to me, I  will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.” The Creator said, “No. They will go there, too.” The buffalo said, “If you give it to me, I will bury it on the Great Plains.” The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.” Grandmother Mole, who lived in the breast of Mother Earth, and who had no physical eyes but saw with spiritual eyes, said “put it inside of them, that is the last place they will look.” And the Creator said, “It is done.”

This story seems simple and silly, but how many of us have spent years seeking happiness and well being by looking outside of ourselves….using relationships, our careers….loftier goals and more doing to arrive at a sense of being enough. The idea that what we are looking for is within us, seems too simple. But just like the principle or truth of gravity (that works whether we understand it or not), our experience of reality is created within each of us with our innate resources of Mind, Thought and Consciousness.  Each and every moment, 100% of the time, our Mind is constantly creating new scenes with feeling and meaning. Understanding this paradigm brings freedom. I always and can only ever experience my life from the inside-out.

Seeing Beyond The Illusion to Make Your Mind Matter….

I believe we all want to experience peace of mind and happiness. In spite of this desire, it can often seem like what happens outside of us makes this impossible. We often feel like victims of life and our circumstances. For many individuals, feeling constantly stressed and anxious has become the “norm”….but it doesn’t have to be.

Once we come to “understand” the part we play in creating our experience of life, we “see” how we innocently misuse our creative gifts. Innate health, wellness and wisdom are within all of us, and so are the tools to access them. We are born with them. They are our natural default setting. We all have an internal GPS available to guide us back to this innate state of well-being. With this understanding we can experience ourselves, relationships and live from a more peaceful, joyful and purposeful state of mind. The upcoming Make Your Mind Matter program is meant to facilitate the understanding of how the three universal principles of thought, consciousness and Mind are always at work within us, within everyone who is alive. Outside circumstances, people and events do not create our experience of life….that is only an illusion.
