One of the incredible gifts of getting a little glimpse into the understanding of the
Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought, is the realization of how we create every moment of our entire experience of life from the inside out.
Our human system somehow generates within each of us, with no conscious effort on our part, a nonstop stream of thoughts appearing in our head, some
of which we notice, and many of which we don’t. And whenever we happen to somehow innocently make the choice on which thoughts to believe and which thoughts to ignore, the attention to any of those thoughts leads to our feelings, creating the felt and
believed experience of every moment of our life. And however we think and feel, is how we make the moment-to-moment choices of how we respond, and act, and behave.
And what’s completely amazing about this is that we’re not the ones running the show. We’re NOT in control of any of the process
of having thoughts continually appearing in our head, even though we may often “think” we are.
Instead, we are inexplicably miraculous bits of stardust, temporarily turned into human form, with a heart that beats for us, lungs that breathe for us, a regenerative system that
repairs our wounds and protects us from bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins, and parasites. And then there’s the fact that our body is continually re-generating itself, with a mostly entirely new body every 7-10 years, every cell dying and being replaced.
They say that about 60% of our body weight is water, and that we’re made up of the vibrating energy of atoms that are mostly empty space.
We are literally freaking miracles walking around in human form, believing, with the power of thought, that we’re in control of everything we do, and can be in control of everything we experience, when we are actually in control of very
little, if anything at all.
I don’t know why
we keep dismissing or forgetting the miracle of our life, and why we keep thinking that it’s up to us to control everything in our lives. But it’s not something we can ever know the true reason for. It’s just something that happens with the
power of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought, as we frequently get caught up in and obsess over the crazy little stories that appear in our head that we innocently believe.
And maybe that’s what we ARE here for… to have a roller coaster of experience that we wouldn’t be able to have
if we were always completely aware of the miracle that we are. My husband had an insight for himself that we are simply the nerve-endings for universal consciousness… providing, in our human form, an experience that couldn’t otherwise be experienced
by the “allness and nothingness” that is the Universal Mind that created us.
So what I’m pointing to here, is remembering to be grateful for all that we are and all that we can experience, remembering to be grateful especially for what we have learned so far.
We can often get into the trap of looking for the next issue to deal with, as soon as the latest problem gets
solved, with very little appreciation for having solved the previous problem at all. Once any problem is solved, we don’t have to think about it anymore, and so we have a tendency to jump into a bunch of thinking about whatever is the next problem on
our list, getting all caught up in it and creating tons of busy, unhelpful thinking about it. It’s kind of like we suddenly have some empty space in our head after solving the problem, and because we don’t like the feeling of the empty space, we
look for other stuff to fill it.
The funny paradox is that
the longer and more often we remain in a space of gratitude for all that we are, for all that we have, and for all the insights we’ve received, and trials we’ve gotten through, and problems that have been solved… the more we get insights
and clarity for any of the new problems that will invariably appear. Problems don't get solved because we continuously and diligently and obsessively think about them. Problems get solved when a little space opens in our mind, allowing for new insights to
There will always be problems. That’s
the nature of life, and the nature of our thinking. But in a space of gratitude, we see those problems with a greater view, accessing some of the limitless number of other perspectives that otherwise wouldn’t be available to us when we’re so desperately,
myopically trying to “solve” the next problem.
Every single day, I continually forget about and take for granted what my own insights have given me. I “forget” that I realized the truth of the fact that every single thought I have ever had and ever will have is completely made
up by the human being that my soul happens to inhabit.
I “forget” that I realized the truth of how we are all connected, how we are all just the impersonal unconditional energy of love in human form.
I “forget” that I realized that no one can ever be broken and that we are whole and perfect and amazing exactly as
we are no matter in what form or state or behaviour.
I “forget” that I’ve seen that every one of us will be perfectly fine no matter what happens, even if we die.
I “forget” that I saw and felt something incredible that is so much more amazing than the trivial little insignificant stuff that occupies my thoughts each
BUT, despite all of my “forgetting”,
my innate wellbeing keeps rising back to the surface, as it was designed to do. And so I remember again, and I gently remind myself to just let go of whatever I’m obsessing over, and relax into appreciation of everything exactly as it is. No need to
change, just a moment to “be”, and a moment to do whatever occurs to me next.
I get lost all the time in my incredibly believable and compelling thinking, but I also keep remembering to look here, within, toward the miracle of life. I know that this is where all the answers are.
