Create Your Life On Purpose-God and the Law of Attraction
I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY
My Disclaimer- What I am about to write is what I believe. It is not an invitation for an argument or designed to antagonise anybody. It is my expression of truth as I know it. I’m sure it will continue to expand as I evolve and grow more deeply into the Love of God. If what is read brings any offence, it is unintentional and therefore rests upon the shoulders of the one who has been offended. If you don’t like it, or it upsets you, don’t read my stuff. Go write your own stuff.
If you read this and have questions, I’d love to answer them. But I am not going to answer accusations or attacks-should any come, because those people are not looking to understand where I’m coming from, they are simply wanting a platform to outshout me. Well, I won’t shout back, I’ll just hit ‘delete’, so spare us all, please. Yes, just covering myself here. Lol
A LONG time ago (and people like to argue about how long, because in majoring on the minors, they can be distracted from the whole point!)… anyway, as I said, a long time ago, the Universe came into being…
It’s All a Set Up
A certain ‘person’, who many of us that like him affectionately term God, set up the way things should be. The entire creation exuded forth from God’s essence as ‘the work of his hands’ like a potter with his clay. (We humans also came forth from God, bearing his likeness even to the point of sharing in his function of consciousness but like a baby, developed a capacity to hold an individual state of consciousness.) And that which came through his creation bears his characteristics. And they are CONSISTENT characteristics. These traits are known to scholars as the Natural Laws of Science. They are referred to by lovers of God as the nature of God.
In Proverbs 3:19-20 it says,
By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
Thru understanding, He set the heavens in place,
Thru knowledge the mountains were formed and
The clouds let drop their dew.
I love how in the French version, the meanings of wisdom, understanding and knowledge are more fully clarified. For one thing, the word ‘knowledge’ is la science.
Let me state this here:
God and Science have never been and never will be in enmity to each other. The religious bollocks that are threatened by Science do not know this Creator God. They serve a man-made one who is riddled with contradictions and so can easily topple… and hence feels threat just like any other fragile ego.
God set everything up to flow and function within his laws of construction… the natural order of things.
Unfortunately, it has taken Science and technology some time to catch up to these ‘laws’ and get around to inventing machinery that can “SEE” these invisible laws in greater fullness. So Science was being touted as the be all and end all of truth but it was always a very limited view, being restricted by what could be measured and somehow seen. The instruments were not around that could see what was beyond humankind’s capacity to view with a naked eye.
Today, we have far superior equipment and science is now bearing out spiritual truths and discovering that the very things they had known, such as ‘energy’, were actually references to God by another name and make sense inside an even more amazing and vast context.
The Purpose of Symbolism and Myth and the Power of Metaphor
So, to recap, God created everything, seen and unseen according to his Wisdom, Understanding and [Science]. One example of God’s perfectly imperfect precision is reflected in the galaxies and planetary orbits. Did you know that a day is not actually 24 hours long? It fluctuates all year. Mankind just rounded it off at an average that could be easily measured for management purposes. Nothing wrong with that, but TIME is not God’s invention. That’s why it can be changed whenever a dude in an office decides it’s a good idea. However, all the fancy workings in the world couldn’t get it worked out so well, so the time managers have to ‘bodgey the books’ every four years and add a day to bring things into balance.
Lol-I love that! Creative accounting.
Here’s the thing, Biblical language is often symbolic. Jesus spoke in parables. The Old Testament stories are written as a ‘type’ or metaphor-so it says in the New Testament. It was never about proving it literally or figuratively true-another distraction-but simply to get a desired point across. I know some Bible fundamentalists may hate this, but it doesn’t actually matter if the Garden of Eden is literally true or not, and to get caught up in such arguments is a total waste of time, coz it completely obscures the whole point!
The accounts presented are for us to understand something about ourselves and our connection with God that will lead us into liberty. Fighting over fact will never do that. Freedom is FELT. It is experienced. It is known. Just like God. If we read with an open heart, see God’s wisdom, understand its application and how to use the laws to apply it, we will be able to create in like fashion.
By wisdom a house is built
By understanding, it is established
By knowledge it’s rooms are filled
With rare and beautiful treasures’.
We are given access to the very same tools with which to create our little world inside God’s big world. And that, in my opinion, is why we are here.
God’s Mould and Our PlayDough-co-labourers together with God
Everything-absolutely EVERYTHING- owes its existence to God, or ENERGY.
In him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28
It is God in us who causes us to will and to do according to his good purpose. Phil 2:13
What scientists didn’t get that the meta-physicians and lovers of God did, is that Energy is an Intelligence and it LOVES. By our definition of the word-IT IS GOOD. It is ONLY good. Where we do not see what we consider to be good, we are witnessing the effects of the delusion of a separated consciousness. After 1000s of years of such delusion, the planet is reeling. Humanity is interacting with creation-in every way, a symbiotic relationship.
The Bible puts it in these terms
19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.
I’ll cover more of this verse another time but my point is that as man evolves, the planet will be restored as well. Global warming will no longer exist the day that enough of humanity cease to believe it needs to. At present, much of the population feel we must ‘pay’ for our abuse of the planet and suffer global warming for it (consequences), but the more people that understand that our connection with God and each other and understanding our ability to use wisdom, understanding and knowledge in Love come together, the planet will respond.
It will manifest the healing of the imagined rift between God and man, which only exists in each individual’s thoughts that are somehow separate from God’s. The evidence of conscious connection with God is the confidence in GOD’s Goodness and it is this goodness that will ultimately fill all.
The Reason “Evil” Exists
To begin let me explain what evil is, in some of my terms.
Evil is that which is opposed to good, some say. But really, evil is better understood as misaligned with good. Or ‘m’aligned’. It is actually the separation from the flow of good. And it abides in the judgmental ego of mankind. The only reason that ego exists is because, in order to be considered truly free, humanity must have a representation of two options.
The Bible uses language like Life and Death, Blessings and Cursings, Love and Fear, Mercy and Judgment, Light and Dark. But these dichotomies are not opposing forces. There is no competition. No battle. Just as Light easily and instantly dispels darkness, so Love drives out fear and mercy triumphs over judgment. The supposed polarised force is actually the absence of acknowledgment of the only true power. And it is an absence that exists only in the mind of a person who chooses separation from all that is GOD. (col 1:21 Enemies in our minds… )Or more simply-chooses to align with something contrary to the Love of God. We can be aligned in one area and not in another. Be aligned in one moment and not in another. At whatever point we are, we create our lives from there.
18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. I John4:18
12 Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom,13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.James 2:12-14
(The law that gives freedom is Love and Grace, under which there is no judgment because all is made ‘right’ through being aligned with God Rom 5-8. Someone who is still showing judgement that condemns or demands some kind of punishment is demonstrating that they are still separate from grace in their thinking and hence still under man’s law and therefore will still experience judgment and a sense of condemnation from their own ego! Their own hearts condemn them, I John 3:19-20 not God, because they are not aligned to experience God’s goodness).
The whole earth is filled with His glory does not mean what some people think about slaying the ‘unrighteous’. We won’t need to-they will wipe themselves out! Anyone who isn’t aligned with Love, Mercy, Life, Grace etc, cuts themselves off from the flow that will keep them alive, so they will create circumstances of fear, judgement, death and law -to their own destruction. It’s not the wrath of God. God’s judgment means the restoration of creation to ‘rightness’. All things brought back into balance and to their original state. This is the true meaning of judgment. It is to make right but not by punishment and penalty, but by restoration.
And that’s why God reconciled himself to man through Jesus. So humanity could concede the possibility of being ONE with God again. Without the bloodshed, human thinking could not get free of its own condemnation and laws. God didn’t need the blood, people did.
Full Circle- Created in the Image of the Creator God.
And here’s the point. We, humanity as a whole, are creating the death, the cursing, the fearful situations, the condemnation and the judgment and even the disasters-not God. Humanity, who has been pointing the finger and blaming someone else since the beginning of time, has only itself to blame. It’s time to accept responsibility and live in the freedom we were born to!
How are we, who are grasshoppers in the land of giants, doing this? -By working the laws of established creation in ignorance. Instead of seeking to understand them and how we can align with all that is good and desirable and thereby create a beautiful life for ourselves we hold, en masse, to the notion of being helpless victims under constant threat of siege and annihilation that must fight and struggle for survival. It is Ego and the idea of being, or having, a separate identity that is fighting for control. But like all parasites, it brings death to its host.
The Bible proclaims the number of the Beast portrayed in Revelations as 666.
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a* man (footnote* or humanity’s number). That number is 666. Revelations 13:18
It’s the greatest scapegoat scam in human history, a ploy of Ego(separate consciousness) to preserve itself by keeping people in darkened, powerless thinking- imprisoned by their right to choose, whilst simultaneously losing sight of the choices available. Punishment is not God’s response to such as these. Illumination is. EPH 1:18 Wisdom, understanding and knowledge.
Demonstrated in those willing to live it ever more fully, as they grow in it.
Bottom line: It’s not a question of doing what God wants, but about aligning to your own heart’s desires and acquiring them through the established set up of wisdom, understanding, knowledge and love.
I believe that that IS God living in and through you, creating together with you AS ONE to build your life.
