Remembering Infinity: Vision for a New Earth


Why not envision a world where everything works in perfect harmony?

Why not envision a world where everything exists in perfect harmony?

Over the past few months, I’ve written quite a bit about nature and creation, as well as our individual and collective abilities to bring about positive change. I’ve also written about many of the things I intend to experience in the days, months, and years ahead. What I suppose I haven’t done is develop or share a clear picture of the kinds of “Earth Changes” I expect to see.

In the Light of new understanding, I’ve learned that to create the kind of future we wish to see, each of us must first fix our intentions firmly in mind. The more we’re able to envision it, invest feeling into it, and take whatever actions we can to help bring it into being, the sooner we’ll be able to actually experience it.

Unfortunately, far too many people still seem to be under the influence of archaic and fear-driven ways of thinking. They seem to have succumbed to those whose agenda calls for negativity, separation, and control. They insist that our future is troubled—and that change will only be brought about through a litany of catastrophic, “doom and gloom” events. While I certainly respect their Free Will choice to focus on such drama, that’s not the future I’m investing in. Not in my reality! To the contrary—I prefer to see our transition into the future as a remarkably smooth one.

In my vision for a New Earth, all of mankind has been gently, but firmly awakened to its own Divine Nature. People feel more and more connected to and guided by their own “Higher” senses of Purpose. They’ve started peacefully and gracefully becoming all they truly wish to be. As a butterfly emerges from the dark confines of its cocoon and stretches in the warm, spring sunshine, we too have begun to unfold ourselves—free and perfect expressions of Life itself.

With a speed that few would have ever thought possible, the fresh breeze of positive change has swept through our homes, communities, nations, and world. The true agendas of those who once ruled through violence, fear, manipulation, and power have been completely exposed for the world to see. Those responsible have resigned—or been peacefully removed from office. They’ve been replaced by incorruptible souls who’ve stepped forward to lead us with transparency, integrity, and honor.

The inalienable rights of all have been restored and are respected by all—for none wishes to bring harm or ill will upon any of his or her fellow beings. Through this enlightened renaissance, all have embraced a new paradigm—one in which everyone works together for the common good. We’ve cultivated a fresh, new environment where mutual respect, understanding, and acceptance are the new hallmarks for Humanity.

Suddenly free to express itself in its Divine Sovereignty, Humanity has flourished. With so many people suddenly “in tune” with the Universal Flow of creative energy, an expansive sense of Unity and the open exchange of ideas have inspired quantum leaps forward in the sciences, arts, and technology. These advancements have allowed us to quickly and easily overcome many of the challenges and limitations that have suppressed the Human Spirit for far too long.

In this vision, we live in harmony with ourselves, one another, and the Earth. Our advanced knowledge and abilities have allowed us to heal our minds and bodies, cleanse our lands and oceans, and purify our air and water. Finally able to tap into and utilize “free energy”, this non-polluting and unlimited source of power has revolutionized our transportation, industrial, and economic systems. True balance has been restored to Nature, our global climate is pleasant, and the seasons are mild. We now enjoy an abundance of health, food, and resources—for our entire population. No longer driven by the need to simply survive, accumulate wealth and power, or abide by self-imposed limitations, each individual is free to realize his or her own potential and explore our newly restored Earth.

As one, our focus has shifted back to the things that are truly important—our relationships, our planet, and our place and purpose within the Cosmos. On this New Earth, we have a renewed appreciation for all the beauty, bounty, and diversity of Life that surrounds us. We are held in awe at the transformation that has taken place, seemingly right before our very eyes—and we find ourselves filled with Joy, Love, and Gratitude for all that has transpired.

If that’s the kind of world you’d like to experience too, by all means embrace it!   We can all share it—and we do have the power to make it happen. All it takes is one thought, one moment, and one deed at a time. To use a favorite and oft-quoted aphorism, I would assert that “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

So are you still with me? Good.

Let’s do this!

Remembering Infinity: Co-creating Our Future


Do we really create our own future and change our world by changing our own “energy” and thoughts?  Why yes, we do!

Do we really co-create our own future and change our world by changing our own “energy” and thoughts? Why yes, we do!

Over the past few years, one of the things that has fascinated me is the concept that we create (and collectively co-create) our own future through a process that some call the “Law of Attraction”. This simply means that we attract future situations and conditions to us through our thoughts, intentions, and actions. Hmmmm. I know. Some of you may think that sounds an awful lot like New Age “mumbo-jumbo”—and I can certainly understand why you may not be entirely convinced.

But let’s look at it this way. Every day when you get up, you think about what you need to do. There are personal needs, then work, school, and chores—or perhaps you’re on vacation and decide to relax and see some of the sights.  Once you’ve thought about these things and made plans, don’t you just do them?  Don’t the things you do and the decisions you make have a direct impact on what “happens” to you during your day?  You may certainly correct me if I’m wrong, but by thinking about and then acting upon your intentions, you create a significant part of your own future experience!   I know we don’t tend to think much about it, but we create our future, just like that—every day of the week.

This aspect of creation is generally accepted by most people of course but, believe it or not, it’s also a very limited way of thinking.  Most people wouldn’t argue the fact that we can create some aspects of our future through our Free Will choices and actions, but that’s exactly where their vision ends.

The more I study and learn about metaphysics, the more I find that we affect our world and our environment in very subtle ways—ways many of us can’t even begin to imagine or understand. In a previous post, “On Beads and Timelines”, I wrote about how we subtly shift ourselves through a variety of different timelines, thereby creating countless future possibilities through the personal choices we make. We also attract to us, on a quantum (sub-atomic) level, those very conditions we need to progress and grow spiritually—and I’m pleased to suggest that this may just be the beginning!

What I’ve been observing lately is that, as my attitude and personal energy changes in either a “positive” or “negative” way, this somehow affects the world around me in a similar manner. As I change myself from within, I eventually see these changes reflected externally—and these changes seem to be occurring more and more quickly as I gain confidence in the process. When I choose to be more calm and happy, for example, I notice those around me seem to be much more calm and happy. When I’m in such a state of mind, I experience much less drama, discord, and outright conflict. I also know that things are much more apt to go smoothly and well. Drawing from several years of similar experiences and observations, I’m certain that we not only affect one another energetically, we also change our immediate surroundings—and, in a cumulative and collective way, our entire world.

So as we begin this bright, shining New Year, I’ve already set my intentions to work with others and experience a world that is filled with Gratitude, Peace, and Love. Why not think about and begin consciously co-creating the future you wish to see in 2015—and beyond? All you have to do is begin with yourself. Like ripples on a pond, your energy will project outward—blending with the energy of others to create the change you would like to see.

There’s no better time to start than right now. There’s a fresh New Year at hand and the sky’s the limit! Wait…let me rephrase that. There’s a fresh New Year at hand and there are no limits!

May you and your loved ones enjoy countless blessings not just today and throughout the New Year, but always!

Remembering Infinity: If You Don’t Mind…


Age (and every other limitation you can think of) is a case of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it just doesn’t matter!

Age (and every other limitation you can think of) is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it just doesn’t matter!

There’s a familiar philosophical saying that states, “Where attention goes, energy flows”. A similar quote by noted psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Jung states, “What you resist, persists.” To me, these perceptive sayings are two similar ways of saying the same thing—they simply mean that the more we focus on something, the stronger it grows and the longer it will remain in our consciousness. Whether they’re aches and pains, negative thoughts, or allergies and illness, the more thought and attention we give them, the greater will be their affect upon us.

I’m sure you’ve all had those days—the ones where you get up in the morning and you just feel “off” somehow? You may have even gone to bed early and slept well, but when it came to getting up you just weren’t feeling the enthusiasm you needed to actually get up and carry on with the day. Sometimes, you might succumb to the feeling, shut off the alarm, call in sick to work, and pull the covers back over your head. Other days you might just shake it off, get up, and get on with it—often finding that your weariness was just a temporary feeling.

So what made the difference between these two reactions to a less-than-stellar start to the day? You did! In the latter reaction, you looked past a limiting, negative feeling and chose to focus on the possibility that you could experience something better instead. By making the conscious choice to get up and embrace the day despite your initial feelings, you set your intent to look past these limitations and experience the day in a new and positive way.

There are lots of other times when this strategy is helpful as well. When things suddenly go wrong during the day, when we feel illness or pain, or when we’re feeling afraid, frustrated, and angry, we’re often tempted to surrender to the influence of these negative “triggers”. At such times it’s important to realize that we do have a choice. We can allow them to overcome us—or not. If we acknowledge them, accept them, appreciate them, and let them go, we may then consciously choose to look past them and focus instead on the things, already inside us, that we would rather acknowledge and bring forward—things like health, strength, calm, and comfort. When we make the right choice, often before we even realize it, the unpleasant thoughts or feelings will have passed and we’ll be right back on track.

I think of this principle often, but I can almost guarantee I’ll be reminded of it every year on my—or someone else’s birthday. Those are the occasions when some have a tendency to bemoan life and complain about getting another year older. Me? Nah. I don’t think so! I choose to embrace the day. I’m grateful to have experienced another 365 days of life on this wonderful earth of ours—and I’m looking forward to experiencing as many more as I possibly can before I move on to the next mysterious adventure that awaits.

As I frequently tell my family and anyone else who will listen, age (and every other limitation you can think of) is just a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it just doesn’t matter!

Remembering Infinity: Be the Fizz!


In the wonderful refreshment of life, why not be a “sparkler” and a “popper”?  Be the fizz!

In the wonderful refreshment of life, why not be a “sparkler” and a “popper”? Be the fizz!

Have you ever noticed the tiny bubbles in a glass of Champagne, sparkling cider, or any other “fizzy” drink, for that matter? There’s just something about those carbonated drinks that makes them so special and festive. They tickle your nose and taste buds as you drink, they move and sparkle in the light, and they bring a sense of joy to nearly any occasion—in fact, if you listen closely, you can almost hear them singing in the glass! Quite obviously, it’s the bubbles that make these drinks so uniquely uplifting.

I always enjoy the satisfying “pop” and fountain effect that occurs every time I wiggle the cork off a frosty, cold bottle of Champagne. Much to the delight of some and the dismay of others nearby, I often let the cork recklessly fly where it may—and I love to watch the foam build as I fill the glasses.

Some bubbles rise quickly to the surface, dissipating into the atmosphere with scarcely a moment’s hesitation or a ripple. Others are so full of life that they literally spring above the surface to pop and explode outward like tiny, pearlescent fireworks. Most, it seems, swirl and dance upward together—sometimes forming gracefully swaying “bubble Conga lines” or even merging playfully before they disappear. There are others too, that cling to the bottom of the glass, as if stubbornly refusing to join in the fun. It’s almost as if they’re afraid to let go and embrace the experience. Sadly, they neither grow, nor move, and eventually waste away—one invisible molecule at a time.

Of all of them, the bubbles I find most captivating are those that shine brilliantly as they rise. They reflect the light and offer something special—a magical “sparkle” to the glass.   Regardless of their individual qualities, there’s something wonderful about all of the bubbles—perhaps it’s their unpredictable movements, their lively energy, their effervescent spray, or the delightful tingle they leave behind. Whatever it is, there’s just something special about them that naturally contributes to a joyful and memorable experience.

In this wonderful refreshment we call life, I’ve decided to be a part of the “fizz”. I intend to be both a “sparkler” and a “popper”. I can see your “sparkle” too—but are you really letting it shine as brightly and brilliantly as you might? It’s easy. Just let go, share the experience with others, and enjoy the wild, unpredictable ride upward.

Cheers!

Remembering Infinity: The Gift of Now


The moment I’m standing in right now is my power!

The moment I’m standing in right now is my power!

In my last post, “Spirit Anchors”, I expressed some thoughts about the importance of letting old attachments to past experiences and feelings go in order to move forward in life. As I wrote about this, another important concept came to mind that I’ll be addressing today. That’s the idea that our greatest power lies in “The Now”.

In addition to releasing the feelings and thoughts that limit us, I’ve often heard others suggest that we must “reclaim our power” in order to move on—as if we have somehow scattered our energy all over the Cosmos and it needs to be gathered again.

Whenever I consider the last notion, I have to laugh, for I imagine myself with an imaginary butterfly net in hand, frantically rushing about in an effort to chase down and recapture all my previously spent energy—just so I may somehow recycle it. It doesn’t have to be nearly that difficult—really! All that’s truly necessary is to realize that all the authority, all the energy, and all the power we need is right here, right nowin the miracle of the present moment.

The greatest beauty of the gift of “Now” is that we can change our minds, change our focus, and therefore change our future any time we wish—and every new “Now” moment presents us with the perfect opportunity to do so.

Me? I’ve decided to drop that useless butterfly net. I no longer waste my time trying to hunt down old, spent energy.  There’s plenty more fresh energy where that came from (see my related post, “Energetic Universe“)–and I’ve learned that the moment I’m standing in right now is my power. Everything I need to move forward is right here, ready to move with me and through me in a powerful, infinite flow. I know that all I have to do is step forward to engage it—not only in this moment, but the next, and the next, and the next…

Remembering Infinity: Energetic Universe

Sometimes it’s difficult to maintain a positive attitude—especially when things, from our limited perspective, don’t seem to be going our way. The steady bombardment of negative images and messages we receive, as well as endless demands for our time and attention, often leave us feeling tired, frustrated, and empty.

To make matters worse, we are sometimes reminded that stressors not only drain our energy when we are aware of them, they also drain us subconsciously—even when we are not actively engaged with or thinking about them! I suppose it’s a bit like those background systems that continue to draw electricity—even after we think we’ve turned off our computers and appliances. How then, is it possible to preserve our personal and “spiritual” energy? After all, we can’t just “unplug” ourselves from life and hope for the best—or can we? Believe it or not, in a way, we can.

Because our bodies depend upon us as much as we depend upon them, we should always make certain we are properly addressing our most basic physical needs first. Naturally, this requires that we receive adequate rest, sleep, and exercise. Of course, we should also take proper steps to maintain a healthy diet, seek appropriate medical care when it is needed, and properly manage our stress.

Where “spiritual” energy is concerned however, I’ve found it necessary to make some slight adjustments in my way of thinking. The first was to understand that the energy I always thought of as “mine” really isn’t. It all belongs to—and comes from, the “Universe”. I just borrow some of it for a short time and focus it on the things that are important to me. Once I accepted that concept, I quickly began to appreciate the fact that energy isn’t just abundant in the universe, it’s everywhere. This is because everything, at its most basic, quantum level, is made from energy—even our own human bodies. Clearly, I realized, there must be an infinite supply of it! To make the best use of this endless supply, we simply need to understand that we are only limited by our own thoughts and actions.

As I thought about this universal energy and how we use it, I also considered the fact that nature seeks balance in all things. Whenever something moves (take air or water for example), something always flows in to take its place. This is true for energetic processes as well. Therefore, as a person focuses his or her attention on something, an energetic flow begins to travel through them, from the infinite, universal supply. As this energy moves, new energy immediately flows in to replace it. There’s no need for anyone to concern themselves with altering, stopping, or adding to the flow just because they feel it may be “too little” or “too much”. They need only focus their attention, do what they feel is necessary in the moment, and let go—trusting that Universe will take over from there and resolve things in its own perfect way. It occurred to me that this may be one of the easiest ways to “unplug” ourselves—we simply do our best, detach ourselves from any expected outcome and let the Universe do all the “heavy lifting”.

With this in mind, I’ve chosen to embrace this process as my preferred method of spiritual “energy management”. I now think of it as a team effort, wherein I do what I feel guided to do, then I simply let go and let the Universe do the rest. With such a powerful, co-creative process at work, how could one not move forward with an expanding sense of grace, confidence, and ease?
