Day 178/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.
I'm truly fascinated by the way that we humans defer to religion and spirituality for any phenomena that we don't yet understand. How did that come about? That we needed an explanation so we made up this mysterious and mystical method for explaining the unexplainable. Until of course, it can be explained.
Today Sarah speaks of Grace. Ask and it is given. The notion that there is a saint or a God figure waiting to hear your prayer and your request is heard.
My cynical mind prefers the physics of these matters. With more information available of the structure of spacetime, the dynamics are there for all to experience in our physical reality.
Yet it's still more exciting and "spiritual" to defer to a mystic.
I guess it doesn't matter much where the answers come from. I prefer the concept of becoming an engineer of the field or the vacuum.
When I was introduced to the law of attraction some decades ago I was curious and fascinated by this phenomena. Having been indoctrinated into religion early I'm all about understanding the physics of these occurrences.
My experiences with spirituality have been that it's too easy to pass everything off as spiritual, instead of looking for the evidence of its existence.
When I heard the stories about Jesus healing the sick I wanted to know how he did it. I never believed that he was some supernatural being. If he could do it then any human can do it, and they can.
I learned to trust myself and my ability to learn things that most people think is impossible. Energy healing is much more well known today, yet still people think it's some kind of magic because they can't see it with their own eyes.
You know we can't see the colours in white light with our eyes until it's shone through a prism. The same is true for energy healing. We can't see it with our own eyes, but with a special camera, the energy system that we are working with is very visible.
Whether you call on a disembodied being or the field directly, the same process occurs to bring you that which you ask for.
Trust life and life will provide for you exactly what you are aligned with. Without going into a physics lesson, that's it in a nutshell.
The law of attraction is less spiritual than it is an expression of the physics of spacetime.
What we ask for (provided we are on its wavelength) we will receive. The trick is getting onto the wavelength of the things you want. Even if it's as simple as the kids cleaning up after them, the day running smoothly, energy for early evening.
We can engineer all these daily comforts simply by asking and allowing the field to do the rest. It's not magic, it's energy and information.
366 days Towards Self-Mastery
When I considered my New Year's intentions for 2020 I had just one: To allow my heart to love what it loved...and let it lead me. (If not now, then when?)
I've spent months working on integrating my life. To live life more fully with my home life, my interests, my work, my responsibilities, all coming together, all connected. I want to give each the attention that they desire and need, and still have time and energy for the others. That means living and working from the heart.
As I was clearing out my bookshelf over the Christmas break I discovered Simple Abundance. I set it aside to explore it on New Year's Day as I lazed through another delicious day of nothingness. Sarah, the author, says this book is about living in grace. Living in grace I realised, is about Self-Mastery.
My thirst for understanding the human condition has driven me all my life, and hand-in-hand with self-mastery it has been a life-long goal. And seeing as I love to write, that living in grace is about self-mastery, and I love a bit of a challenge, then if I am truly going to let my heart lead, I really don't have any other choice. So scary as it feels, I'm starting out on a daily mission of leaning into the suggestions of this daybook and making a daily post to keep me accountable. If not now, then when?
I'm Josie. You can find out a little more about me here.
