Via the process of expansion of knowledge, we listen to a teacher or study books--both methods enable us to absorb the concepts of others, run them through our potential for understanding, and arrive at a conclusion of what we think we comprehend of that being presented.
With that in mind, let's proceed with the "ramblings and rumblings" within this book and use them as food for thought--the basic premise being: If we were created in the Image and Likeness of THE SPIRIT behind that Creative Energy we call God, how do we go about gaining understanding that enables us to utilize ITS first creative act whereby we, as Images, do what IT does?
This book is in the form of a study guide intended to stimulate an in-depth "second look" at your own rationale regarding the relationship that exists between THE SPIRIT and yourself as the "Ultimate Act of Creation" existing within ITS Creative Energy. It is from there that we receive our abilities to be Creators made in the Image and Likeness of God which, in turn, have made of That Place a sea of differences that bespeak of all that we have done within THE FATHER'S DOMAIN (Heaven). Each action contains the Natures of both THE SPIRIT and IT'S Images.
AN ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH A RELATIONSHIP?
Clues as to whether or not your present experiences bespeak of a positive pattern of choice are:
l. You are happier and more content with the circumstances of your life
2 You are now able to look at the lives of others and the total universe with the point of view that "Hey! Everyone is, in spite of appearances, doing just fine," with the understanding that they too will eventually recall to mind the ultimate reality behind their experiences on earth--not to remain here forever- -but to return to that Home from whence they came.
The first step requires that you call upon your "Awareness of the Oneness" we share with THE SPIRIT so that you can image ITS Nature within that place known as the Creative Energy of The Father... for this is the source of His Tools that we "use" during the creation of our own manifestations.
It all starts with your becoming open to the possibility of change that will enable you to become as one likened unto the pebble and its relationship to the encircling ripples radiating out from the center
These creative principles will, when applied, eliminate all the dilemmas that are currently stifling higher creativity within today's world whether of a personal, national, or universal nature.
Let us consider one of the current concepts that certainly appears as a valid premise on our behalf. Larry Dossey, M.D. draws our attention to Michael Talbot's "The Holographic Universe:"
"Holography is one of the most profoundly exciting ideas to emerge from science in this century. Many who discover it are deeply moved, believing it to be a rare bridge between many areas of human endeavor--science, philosophy, spirituality, and healing. We desperately need new models of reality to fire the imagination of what is possible and to give us new visions of our place in the cosmos as a wake-up call to wonder, an adventure in ideas"
How do we define Truth and that which conforms to law?
"For everyone that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest that they are wrought in God." John 3:20-2l
Remember, "light" speaks both of energy and vibration that are components of the Spiritual Nature of those created in the Image and Likeness and that spills over into their physical reality whereby the light of understanding enables us to "see clearly" and make correct choices.
We are referring to the implication that we must do something with our present concept of Truth for only through the quality of the finished product will we "know the Truth that sets one free." Such actions beget Wisdom (proof that you know what you're talking about). Thoughts and words in and of themselves are as causes that motivate, but the deeds (effects) reveal the character of our choices.
The Ultimate Truth reveals itself by way of our involvement in creative activity and that which has motivated us to be Creators. In other words, if Truth is indeed inherent within our creations, the results will reap benefits that speak of THE SPIRIT of that Creative Energy we call God. When they do not, then should we pray "more and more of Thee and less and less of me!"
Read on with pen in hand, for your thoughts become your reality when presented by way of spiritual, mental, and scientific processes
Which current concept of your own do your feel deserves deeper consideration as to its validity?
Having created a thought that reveals "you" as a Cause, what action, as an Effect, will you now strive to manifest as an Image of THE SPIRIT?
As you create answers to the above questions, remember those "assurances" given unto you -- image their purpose! Think this not as mockery! Yet be "meek and humble of heart!" Seek ye first the ultimate character -- LOVE.
