Think, “What direction is evolution headed in?” And strive to consciously move yourself in that direction. Answering this question is not too far removed, if at all, from asking, “How can I be more like Jesus?” Jesus represents a Cosmically Conscious human being, one who was aware of the Infinite Goodness of the universe and the eternity of all life. Because he unconditionally trusted in God and the Goodness of the universe, he transcended the fear of death and shared an empowering, liberating, and awakening message to many people.
His way of living – perhaps most strongly characterized with the words Loving and Fearless – is a way that we too can live. Gradually, we can increase our love for ourselves, for people, for animals, plants, Mother Nature, for all of Life and All that Is. So too, as we love more and more, we let go of judgments and any sense of separation. What we choose to love very much becomes a part of us, and we begin to realize our unity with All that Is. Jesus realized the Oneness of Creation and so transcended all fear and any sense of world attachment. As he said, “Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
When we solely live “in the world,” denying our spiritual nature, we live with an attachment to the physical world that we perceive with the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. However, if we tune into the spiritual dimension, as Jesus did, we’ll also connect more with our higher abilities like seeing with spiritual eyes, trusting our intuition, healing, and perceiving life energies and vibrations. We all possess faculties beyond the five physical senses. However, unless we believe that we do possess these faculties, we will not discover them. Just like suddenly realizing all sorts of meaningful coincidences occurring in your life, the first step to experiencing more of them is to believe that they are more than mere coincidences and that an Unseen Power just might be at play. Entertaining the possibility is the first step to opening up to the treasures within all of us. Our beliefs are incredible powerful. They will either help us or hurt us, for “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7)
