The great spiritual author Alan Watts had a wonderful image. He said when a boat goes through the water, it leaves a wake in the water as it passes through. The way we understand things psychologically would be that the wake actually creates the boat, that the past is what creates the present moment. But of course, we know that the wake isn’t creating the boat; the boat is creating the wake. It’s the present moment that is creating the past. The present moment is what’s knifing through the water and the wake is just the recording of the present moment moving farther and farther into the past.
A long time ago I read in my research that darkness is the highest vibration, higher than the light. This notion confused me at the time and kept me questioning the true meaning. Of course, I formulated my own opinion in trying to understand what it meant. Then one day I got a glimpse of understanding on the matter. Years of research and personal experimentation led me to the black light of consciousness.
Spirituality is a very important and integral component of health care. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked in modern day medical practice. A review of researched literature reveals that there are at least 15 separate definitions of spirituality derived from the realms of psychiatry, sociology, philosophy, theology, and physics. Spirituality is generally recognized as a basic or inherent quality of all humans, and has been conceptualized as that part of self that represents the highest values in life, motivating the individual to search for meaning and purpose. An individual’s spirituality is at the very cornerstone of health and well-being because it facilitates the holistic integration of mind, body and spirit. Spirit is often described as the aspect of an individual that compels the pursuit of such virtues as love, truth, compassion, and wisdom. Although many associate spirit or spirituality with religion, the concepts are not synonymous. A person can and often does have a spiritual dimension to life that is not expressed in or related to religions doctrine.
Beliefs create our reality. They may be your interpretation of who you are or your interpretation of what others think of you. Beliefs are manifested in the conscious and subconscious mind. The mind must be free of certain beliefs before insight can occur. A quality of this insight is that one acquires the ability to live in the present moment and see the ‘whole’, rather than the ‘parts’.
In today’s societies it is fashionable to be in pursuit of enlightenment. There is an incredible amount of diversity available today, and most seekers are scattered not knowing where to look next, but always searching for the missing key. Of course, it is OK to study all the systems you would like. That is your free will, and there is certainly some value to it.
The “Mirroring Theory” states that what is presented before you is your own reflection. The law of parsimony states that what we create within us is always mirrored outside of us and reflected back to us. As well as the physiological law of paramagnetism states, “you attract to you what you are giving off.”
