Emit Your Own Frequency

Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.

Barbara Marciniak

 

My friend, Koreen shared this on Facebook a few weeks ago and I completely connected with it.  

 

Nothing can disturb your calm, nothing can break through your wall of peace unless you let it.  That lesson took me many years to incorporate into my being.  When you learn to emit your own frequency

Frequency

You’ll find that those who vibrate on a lower level can’t reach you.  A challenging thing to do when those around you do their best to bring you down to their level.  Stay positive.  Continue pushing forward.  Keep reflecting your spirituality.  When someone brings you down:
You’re not doing it right.  Or
Does anything else to lower you to their level,

Lift them up with a:
Yes But.

How do you do that you may ask?
Give them a:
Yes, but this works for me.

Or a:
Yes, but what if you look at it this way?

There is no RIGHT way to do ANYTHING.  It’s what works for YOU.  

By shifting the conversation from negative to positive, you’re also changing the frequency of both parties.  The more you do this, the less friction you will encounter not only with this particular party but with everyone around you.

 

Emit your own positive frequency and see what happens.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

I’ve discussed Quantum Science at Wisdom and Life a few times previously.  I’ve always had a fascination for the topic, having read Michio Kaku:
Hyperspace
Parallel Worlds

 

Trespassing on Einstein’s Lawn By Amanda Gefter is another book I’ve read. I wrote a column here about the book called Ethereal Physics

 

And I am now reading:
Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs

 

Last Monday night I watched Particle Fever at the behest of a frequent library patron.  So why am I writing about Quantum Science at a spiritual blog, you may ask?  I am completely fascinated by the subject.  Parallel Worlds, Dark Matter, Carl Sagan, Einstein.  How can someone NOT be interested in science, in The Big Bang, in where we came from?  And I also believe that Science and Spirituality can cohabitate quite nicely.  And If you’ve been following Wisdom and Life for any length of time, you’ll know that I sometimes detour from the spiritual.  

 

In fact, I’ve written about that here too.  It was Einstein who said:
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; or you can live as if everything is a miracle.”  Einstein and Miracles

 

Nothing would make me happier than to do what Amanda Gefter did in her book Trespassing on Einstein’s Lawn:
Getting to talk with some of the physicists from Particle Fever, from Trespassing… talking to Michio Kaku.  That would be my physics heaven.

 

See? While I have a rock solid belief in God, I also make room for Quantum Science, The many worlds theory fascinates me as well.

 

And now that I’ve read so many books and seen several documentaries on the subject, I can say that I’m beginning to understand a bit more.  And as I continue to read more from the subject, I’m understanding more all the time.  The funny thing is that while I was going to school, physics did not interest me IN THE LEAST.

 

Now I can’t get enough of it.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Sacred Spaces and Meditation

A couple weeks ago, I went to a meditation seminar with my friend Glenn.

We share many of the same philosophies on life and I ALWAYS enjoy when we do things together.  It’s challenging for me to go out at night though, because the LAST thing I want to do after work is to turn around and go out again.  If I have no other plans however, I make an exception for a few of my friends:
Jason
Julie
Cathy
And Glenn.

 

I’m so happy that I went with Glenn because as is usually the case with the seminars I attend with him, I learned something. I meditate regularly as can be seen from the previous link.  Writing is one form or meditation for me.  I sometimes write so furiously that I get into The Flow.  That’s where I love to be.

 

Okay.  So what did I learn from the meditation seminar:
I learned that I don’t have a sacred space where I meditate.  

 

Those of us who practice meditation SHOULD create a place where we are only devoted to that practice.  It’s something I need to work on.  So what IS a sacred place?  And how can we create one?

 

Sacred places are where we feel spiritual.  Whatever creates that feeling in you, if you are spiritually religious, you could create a religious space:
Pictures of saints
Religious talismans

 

Whatever it takes to help you slip deeper into your meditation practice.  I HAVE been using my writing area.  Since writing IS ONE form of meditation that I do, my writing desk served me well.  However, after leaving that seminar I realize there are many things missing from my space and I need to change that.  I’ll be working on making those changes over the coming weeks.

 

Where do you meditate?
Do you have a specific place?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Love Wins –Review

Love Wins, by Rob Bell is the book where I first discovered the phrase universalist.  Love wins perfectly describes my worldview, that there is no Hell.  Mr Bell asks:
–How can a loving God forsake ANYONE?
–If God created every living thing and if God Loves us all, how could he forsake anyone?
Love Wins

 

It’s one of the challenges I have with organized religion and why I stayed away from the church. And it’s why I joined SUUS.

 

–Love Wins is Rob Bell’s call to love each other and see our similarities instead of our differences.
–Love Wins is Rob Bell’s attempt to show that God is all loving.

 

How can someone like Gandhi be sent to eternal damnation simply because he isn’t Christian?  That’s what some would have you believe.  Does that make sense to you?  This is the thesis of Love Wins.  How is it that the ONLY people who are saved are those who are Christian?  If that’s the case, then tell me this:
Why in EVERY case of Near Death Experiences, (NDE) EVERYWHERE around the world do those who have had an NDE, speak of seeing a tunnel and a bright, all embracing light?

 

If ONLY a select few were saved and ONLY Christians, wouldn’t it stand to reason that ONLY Christians would see the “light?”

 

This isn’t what Jesus preached.  Jesus preached all encompassing love.  Man came in and mixed with religion.  I often wonder what Jesus thinks now, when he looks down and sees how his name is being used.

 

–It’s not Christian to hate.
–It’s not Christian to exclude.

 

Rob Bell Understands this, or so it seems from reading Love Wins.  Why not pick up a copy?  Read the book; then tell me you STILL believe only a select few are saved.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Memorial Day 2016

Let’s remember Memorial Day for what is supposed to be celebrated for:
Our veterans who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we enjoy.  NOT for the ubiquitous sales that have proliferated.

I think it is a shame that many of our sacred holidays have been commercialized.  Am I the only one?

 

And Happy Memorial Day?  I don’t think that’s an appropriate greeting.  There is nothing happy about veterans who are no longer with us.  Again, am I the only one who feels this way?

 

 

 

 

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

A Sense of Community –Universalism

I written previously about Universal Unitarianism. How I attended a church in Madison a few years ago and have recently returned to that same church.

FlamingChalice

 

The more I attend the more I realize how well I fit there. I love the sense of community I feel at Shoreline Universalist Unitarian Society. (SUUS) I’ve attended other churches throughout my childhood and adulthood:
Luthern
Catholic

 

Many in those two religions.  I never felt that I belonged in either religion.  It didn’t matter the church I attended.  I just never felt comfortable and it wasn’t for my lack of faith or the number of times I went.  As with people I meet, I’m a quick study.  I can usually tell within the first ten minutes if there is and will be a connection.  I’m typically spot on as well.  

 

From the moment I walked into SUUS, I was immediately put at ease.  It’s the sense of community that keeps me going back.  Shoreline is a small community and I’ve already made some HUGE connections there.  For the past three weeks I’ve been attending:
New to SUUS meetings, three in all and even before I went to these meetings I already knew I found my place of worship.

 

So how did I find it?

Every year in May SUUS puts on the Shoreline Spring Festival in Madison, Connecticut.  I’ve been a vendor there since the first year.  I had no idea what SUUS was when I started going and two years into the event I asked what the organization was.  When they told me I wanted to know more so in September of that second year I went to the church.  I knew right away that I found my home.  It’s that community that I’ve always been searching for and now that I’ve found it I’m not letting go.

 

Yesterday, (Sunday, May 22,) I became an OFFICIAL member having joined the church.  One of the things UUAs say is that there are more of us out there who don’t know they are UUA.  The most important factor for me in joining is the HUGE sense of community I feel at SUUS.  It’s the first place I felt welcomed from my first visit.  I invite all people local to Madison, Connecticut even just once.  I bet those of you with some of my sensibilities will also find it difficult to walk away.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

What Dreams May Come
Richard Matheson


WhatDreams

This is one book that MUST be read by EVERYONE on this journey we call life.  It will forever change your life and your perspective on death if you are open to it.

 

I read Richard Matheson’s What Dreams May Come originally in the early 1990s and the book had such an impact on me that it changed my entire perspective on Life and Death. There have not been too many books that have had such life altering experiences for me.  What Dreams May Come is on a very short list of such books. This book should be on EVERYONE’S shortlist of books to read in their lifetime.

 

To show what an impact What Dreams… has had on me simply click Richard Matheson to see how often I’ve discussed this book at Wisdom and Life.

 

A movie of the same name based on the book is available on DVD:
What Dreams May Come
and though I don’t usually recommend both book and movie, this is that rare exception where both can be viewed separately and neither one takes away anything from the other.

 

The book is based on years of research by the author.  In fact so much went into this book that there is an extensive bibliography in the back of What Dreams May Come.  Matheson says in his foreword that he doesn’t expect us as readers to read every book that he used, however he DOES say that if we chose to we’d come away with a new perspective just as I did.

 

The book begins with a knock on the door of someone.  Chris Neilson has passed and he has been communicating with a medium.  It is said medium who knocks on Chris’s brother’s door and insists on giving him the notes from said conversations.

 

This is where the book begins.  Through this manuscript, Chris attempts to reach out to his brother, doing his best to explain that there is indeed a survival after death, that the soul does carry on, that at some point, we can choose to return to earthly bodies. Yes!  I’m referring to reincarnation.

 

Ostensibly, in What Dreams May Come is where I first saw this topic and really delved deeply into it.  I’ve read this book several times; one of only a handful of books I’ve read more than once.  Each time I read it I come away with a deeper insight.

 

What Dreams May Come is a MUST read!
It is a book that MUST be read by ALL of humankind.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Detachment

Once more it is proven to me that we get things when we need them.

 

That God will ALWAYS provide.  It is now Thursday night and I hadn’t written anything for Monday’s column at Wisdom and Life.  Uh oh.  I thought.  It’s coming down to crunch time.  I need enough opportunity to have written a column and edit it so that when it goes live all the imperfections will be eradicated.  At lunch time as I left work, my friend Glenn walked into the library and said he wanted to thank me for my new found detachment.  That’s all I needed. And I had my topic. Since it is now Thursday night, I will have three full days to go through and edit.

Detach

 

Detachment you say?  Yes.  Read on:

 

 

 

 

 

Merriam Webster defines detachment as:

: lack of emotion or of personal interest
: the act or process of separating something from a larger thing
: a condition in which something has become separated from something else

 

When you look at the definition from a spiritual point of view a lack of attachment can aid you in relationships.  A sense of detachment can aid you in everything about your life. When you no longer stress over what MIGHT happen and simply understand that what is supposed to happen will, life will flow so much easier. It’s done so for me:

When you don’t expect anything from someone else and you understand that whatever happens is supposed to happen you can live your life with so much more ease.

 

The first definition above can seem a bit harsh when discussing a relationship. But

–If you can detach from any expectation
–If you can stop worrying about what someone else thinks or wants
–If you can think about your life and all your relationships as separate from yourself and let go of control, let go of the need to expect anything, you will ultimately find the exact relationship you’ve been looking for.

 

It’s not an easy concept to embrace or fulfill.  It takes constant vigilance, but once you arrive at that place. You find not only peace but also a sense that you’ve finally found your happy place.  No longer will you stress over:
–Will they call?
–Will they visit?
–Do they really like me or is it all a ploy to get something from me?

 

No longer will you stress over:
–Is this where I’m supposed to be?

 

Detachment takes all that away.

Detachment isn’t a bad thing when used in a spiritually motivated way.  It can help us all live a healthier spiritual life.  As I said above:
It’s not an easy undertaking, however. When you consider the alternative:
–Always expecting people to live as we live.
–Always expecting a response and when none is forthcoming getting anxious, dismayed, wondering why.

 

–Always stressing over life’s curveballs.
–Wondering what happened.
–Why you are in this particular position.

 

Wouldn’t life be easier, if you let go of all that anxiety?  You can.

Simply detach from any outcome and let whatever happens happen. It took me a long while to get to this point.  Now that I’ve arrived, there ain’t no way I’m going back; which is not to say I don’t still slip. I do. However, as I’m fond of saying at Wisdom and Life, now that I recognize the pattern of slipping it is that much easier to right myself. It DOES take constant vigilance, though.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Once a Week

Hard to believe when I began Wisdom and Life I wrote columns five days a week.  Keeping that pace wasn’t difficult in the beginning as Wisdom and Life was the only blog I wrote.  Now seven years after its inception, W&L is one of three blogs I maintain.  The other two being:
Scranton Page Turner
CJP Photo News

 

There is no way I could keep the pace of writing five columns a week for W&L, three columns a month for SPT and two columns a month for CJPPN.  I cut back gradually at W&L.  It was in January, 2011 that I cut back from five days a week to three days a week:
Monday
Wednesday
Friday.

 

Image from:

scissors

As I went back through Wisdom and Life to see where each cut back occurred, I found that they both happened in January.  

 

 

 

To three times:
January 2011.

 

To once a week:
January 2015

 

And it isn’t that I’m not writing as often because I now write three blogs.  I almost feel as if I’m writing more now then when I maintained only one blog five times a week.  I struggled both times I cut W&L, more so with the second cut because I enjoyed writing three times a week, however I knew I put too much pressure on myself to write something so often.  Now I’m much more relaxed and I don’t feel as stressed with W&L as I did before I cut back to once a week.

 

And the last thing I want is to feel stressed with something I love to do.  Cutting back was the best thing I could have done.  Not only was it the best thing, it was the RIGHT thing to do.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Innocent Man Forgives Police Officer

 

 

A recurring theme at Wisdom and life is forgiveness as can be seen from the number of columns in the previous link.  I will let this video do most of the work today.  Other than to say that holding onto resentment only hurts the person keeping the resentment.
