[Metaphysical Mind] On the power and integrity of your Higher Power

Dear ULC,

The topic of today's Metaphysical Mind is one that I have recently begun to understand.

In the past I have thought of myself as my own Higher Power but now I am finally learning that God is a power much greater than myself.

Now when I am struggling or facing a difficult situation (usually due to a selfish desire for a positive outcome for me), I do my best to let go absolutely and turn the challenge over to my Higher Power.

This takes great trust, but who can I trust more than my Creator?

Hope you enjoy today's article:

Trust in the Power and Integrity of the Creator by Bill Bowles

Human-kind is generally concerned only with the material things of life. That is, all that has a direct effect on the comfort and well being of the individual. To ask someone if he or she believes in, or has experienced, some form of spiritual existence parallel to or perhaps preceding or succeeding the familiar material world would, in all probability, result in at best a vague acknowledgement coupled with a swift retreat into the world of the senses. 'That which I can SEE, HEAR, TASTE, SMELL or FEEL, this I understand for it is part of my every-day life. If these things cease, then surely I also cease.'

Any belief to the contrary, outside of, and even within the major religious groups, is held to be something which belongs to the realms of cranks and the unbalanced or even the insane. Yet recent work in the fields of Quantum and Metaphysics is laying before the NORMAL world, indisputable proof, which has for so long, been regarded as fantasy or the work of a disturbed mind, but must now be given credence amongst the findings of the scientific world.

Recognition and acceptance of various field theories are things which can no longer be ignored and must now become part of LIFE. Is there something in addition to and beyond just the five senses with which we are all so familiar?

The answer must be a resounding "YES!"

The ancient Sanskrit writings describe a 'primary substance' called Akasha which is said to be of microscopic fineness and exquisite delicacy.

That out of which Everything is Formed

It is not limited or confined in any way and is everywhere present. It is sensitive to the slightest vibration, physical or electro-magnetic, anywhere in the universe.

Let us examine and try to define this 'primary substance'. It is said to be without limitation and also to be everywhere present. This must mean it could be likened to an all pervading invisible mist. It is possessed of exquisite delicacy, which would indicate a benevolent sensitivity. It is of such a nature as to be sensitive to, or aware of, the slightest vibration anywhere. It is that out of which everything is formed. Bearing all this in mind one must also assume that 'Primary' indicates original or first, before all else and 'Substance' some form of, in this case, matter (energy) of immeasurable fineness.

We have then, something that reacts to and also registers any energy input anywhere at any time. We also find that the information registered during these energy vibrations is stored and is retrievable. Our thoughts and actions, in fact the actions of anything within this field of awareness from a rock lying on the ground to the most sophisticated examples of life, must be constituent parts of this primary substance. It is everywhere present, therefore must encompass all matter within its scope.

Surely then, this 'Akasha' can be referred to as a universal consciousness or mind.

The source of all that exists and therefore the source of all creation.

Thus we have an unchanging absolute in which we can place our confidence and trust. Something that has always existed, always will exist, out of which everything is formed and embraces all knowledge and wisdom.

The Creator

In Whom I Place My Trust
