Theme for the Week of April 18:
Consciousness Creates Reality
“We believe that the manifest universe is the body of God.”
– Ernest Holmes
Are you enjoying the themes so far this year? Please let me know what you think! While I’m committed to joining other spiritual communities in this quest of #TheGlobalVision – #AWorldThatWorksForEveryone, I want to make sure that we are discussing and thinking about how these themes and ideas fit into our own lives, how we can live happier, more productive lives because of them. Let me know what you want to hear more of, if you’re not getting what you want from this blog!
Take this week, for instance. Do you still see God as the “Old Man in the Sky?” It’s not as uncommon as you think. Plenty of people have been raised to see God as far-off, distant, judgmental and to-be-feared so as not to displease Him. And, oh yes, God is definitely a “Him.”
Not so much … really! First of all the Judiac-Christian Bible, if that is your holy book of reference, must depict God as male due to the patriarchal nature of those societies. Yet to think that God is physically male is to negate the fact that anything we believe as God must not have actually corporeal form, even though we’ve been taught to see God as such.
If we go back to the consciousness of Oneness (that we are all made of the same “stuff”), then that means God is that same stuff, too. So whatever we see around us is a manifestation of God-stuff. Or, as Holmes put it, “the body of God.” So, our consciousness creates reality. Say WHAT?!?
Yep, and I know that brings up a LOT of different emotions. Over the next week on the Facebook® page of Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation we’ll be discussing how to increase our awareness of “God made manifest” within us and all those around us. How will that look and how will that help us have a life more worth living?
Well, if our consciousness creates reality – meaning that we are cause to the effect in our lives – how can we have more of what we want; and, conversely, less of what we do NOT want? How can we deal with seemingly impossible choices or disastrous events? We’ll include all of that and more. Intrigued? I am! So please join me daily and let’s get to the bottom of this!
In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,
