I LIKE YOU!

This morning John walked into the café and sat down at a corner table and started loudly talking to himself.

My Syrian friend, Tony, turned to me. “He’s crazy.”

“You have voices in your head too,” I replied.

“What do you mean?”

SELF-TALK

When we worry, question our decisions, or wonder about what we’re doing then we’re engaging in negative self-talk. The first discipline, the first disciple of Jesus, was Simon. The name ‘Simon’ means, from Hebrew, “He who has heard/hears.” (Wikipedia). What we hear comes from outside us. It comes from our parents, siblings, teachers, and the internet and TV. Often, if you listen closely to your self-talk you’ll hear your father or mother criticizing you.

WE CREATE OUR LIVES

Then what happens is we repeat out loud what we’ve been saying to ourselves. Those vibrations go out and create reality around us. When we have the discipline of hearing what we choose, we listen to the good, the true and the beautiful. Since we are creators of ourselves, our lives become good, true and beautiful.

CHOOSE WHAT YOU LISTEN TO

You can choose what you want to see, what you listen to, and what life you want. Consider not watching the news, not listening to people who say how bad life is; also you can stop paying attention to your internal self-talk. What you don’t pay attention to will fade away.

  •       You are a good person, a fantastic human being. Right now, wrap your hands around    yourself and say, “I like myself.” “I like myself!”
  •       You create your reality by the stories you hear, the words you repeat internally, and       the things you say. Liking yourself is a good place to start.

I LIKE YOU!

I like myself and I like you.

 

NOTHING MATTERS!

 

AT THE ZERO POINT NOTHING MATTERS

On first blush this seems to be the most negative statement any person can pronounce, but to the mystic and the quantum physicist it’s the truth. While the literal minded person may say, “How can something come from nothing? That’s impossible,” the quantum physicist says at the nothingness of the zero point there is infinite energy. The mystic says enlightenment is the state of being empty, and only in repose do we understand this mystery. What does repose mean?

REPOSE IS NECESSARY

Repose is generally considered to be the state of inactivity or rest. In complete rest, in total repose, nothing  does materialize. Sufi mystic Hazrat Inyayat Khan explains that the spiritual path begins with oneself because it is in living in communication with yourself that the life of God is to be found. In his book The Inner Life, he says “When the lips are closed, then the heart begins to speak; when the heart is silent, then the soul blazes up, raising its flame which illuminates the whole life.” Really, from inactivity activity arises. 

BE THANKFUL

If you are in a restful stage of life, then be thankful. This is an opportunity. Your soul will blaze up. If for an instant you can rest without being attached to the idea that this is a negative place, then something beautiful will materialize. Just realize if you feel like “Nothing matters,” then you are in a beautiful place. You matter!

Dramatic but Quiet

I’ve been reading a bit of Neville Goddard, better known as just Neville. He was one of the quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field in the 1930 and 40s. He lectured and wrote short books about consciousness and man’s relationship to the world. In Your Faith Is Your Fortune, he talks about the 12 disciples of Jesus and investigates the concept that the Bible, especially the New Testament, is figurative and not strictly literal. A figurative description is metaphoric. That is, for instance, in the phrase he “kicked the bucket” we understand the person is not really kicking a bucket, he has died.

A METAPHORICAL LIFE

 

 

Interpreting life metaphorically

The word “metaphor” is defined as a trope or figure of speech in which an implied comparison is made between two unlike things that actually have something in common. We commonly make these comparisons, for instance, a person’s essence is “like” the seed within a fruit. Metaphorically a person’s soul, their essence, resides deep within the outer meat of their personality.

Interpreting Literally or Psychologically

We are not literally a piece of fruit. Well, actually, I may be wrong. A lot of people don’t drop far from the tree. I live in Sherwood Forest, Northridge, California. That is, the San Fernando Valley. Quite a few people grow up here, get old, and die here. They never travel, see the sights and kiss the blarney stone. In fact, their personality is so strong it keeps the essence, the soul from developing.

The 4th Way

The 4th Way.

The first way is the way of the fakir, who controls his body. The second way is the way of the saint who disciplines his emotions. The third way is that of the disciplined mind, the philosopher. The Fourth way is the way of the sly man, who uses his reactions, his life, and his world to change his understanding. He uses his reality to understand by metaphor what his soul is and how it works.

A Handbook for Higher Consciousness

This is important because the New Testament is not simply a record of the trials and tribulations of Jesus. Rather, it is a handbook to higher consciousness. For the reader who can see the Bible as figurative and not literal, it holds specific instructions for manifesting the life you desire.

The 12 Disciples are 12 Disciplines

Really, it never occurred to me until reading Neville that the 12 disciples of Christ meant the 12 disciplines of Higher Consciousness. For instance, the disciple who was later to be the named Peter, the Foundation, was called Simon. In Greek,  From Σιμων (Simon), the New Testament Greek form of the Hebrew name שִׁמְעוֹן (Shim’on) means “he has heard”. Thus, the first disciple of higher consciousness is hearing.  Neville says

“This faculty, when lifted to the level of a disciple, permits only such impressions to reach consciousness as those which his hearing has commanded him to let enter.”

So if you let yourself hear junk you have the consciousness described by the phrase “Garbage in, garbage out.” If you hear stupid, irrelevant stuff you may begin to regurgitate that junk. Your world becomes what you tall about.

You can Figure It Out  

Each of the 12 disciples, defined by their names, actually marks qualities necessary to reach higher consciousness. In fact, according to Neville, the New Testament shows a person how to change their lives and manifest Heaven, here and now. . . if only one can figure out it’s not literal, . . . meaning it is a representational allegory for consciousness, literally it is figurative.

The “Elements” of Thinking

As Above So Below

In Hermeticism “above” means the inside world, inside your mind, and “below” means the outside world, the world of the four elements of earth, air fire, water, and earth. This idea is pretty apparent when we speak of someone who is “grounded.” They feel “solid” to us. They are a “rock.” We talk about “air heads” and people who have “stormy” dispositions. Some people have the attributes of water. They are “cold” or have a “chilly” personality. Other’s are like the sun. They “glow” or they have a “fiery” personality.

HEAD-1

 

 

 

LIFE IS SIMPLE

But it’s not that simple. We are very complicated beings. Thought is greater, vaster, deeper and higher than the brain. The mind is  storehouse of all forms which a person has ever seen and all the thoughts they’ve ever had. The forms of a thought which the mind holds is reflected upon the brain, and made clear to the inner sense. There are visionary people who have conceptions of different colors of thoughts and imaginations and feelings. The color of a thought corresponds with the condition of the mind.

WHAT’S THE CONDITION OF YOUR MIND?

A thought connected with earthly gain, for instance money or property,  is of the earth element. A thought of love and affection represents the water element. One might say it flows or is magnetic. It is spreading out sympathy; a thought of revenge and destruction, hurt and harm represents fire as that element destroys; a thought of enthusiasm, courage, hope and aspiration represents air. To understand yourself, to know who you are, takes a little reflection on the condition of your mind. What element do you present to your friends and family? If you want, you can change that. If you combine fire and air, you can burn with enthusiastic intent.

THOUGHTS ARE ALSO EFFECTS

Your language represents your thoughts. The words you use determine how others respond to you, and this language can be easily read in your face and your form. It is your vibration. What direction are you going with your vibrations? Are you headed higher or lower? Are you moving right or left? Are you sailing or in the doldrums? Whatever direction you’re headed, you can change but you have to want change.

Ismi Azam

In the Western version of the stories of the Arabian Nights, Scheherazade stays alive night by night by telling tales to the sultan. Every kid knows the story of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves in which Ali Baba learns the secret to open the treasure cave by saying the words, “Open, Sesame.” Later in the story the merchant, Cassim gets stuck inside the cave because he forgets and chants the word “Barley.”

UNDERSTAND THE SECRET OF LIFE  

The Arabian Nights are full of archetypes and double meanings. It doesn’t occur to a child and sometimes grownups never understand the real secret of the treasure cave. Sesame in its ground form is a seasoning that comes from the sesame seed, and barley is a cereal grain. The mistake of Cassim hides the error of Ali Baba. The real secret is that “sesame,” is actually “Says Me.”

One stands before the secret of the treasure cave and causes the magical rock to slide open by saying “Open Says Me!” This is the way life works.

 

THE GOAL IS LOVE, HARMONY, AND BEAUTY

The Sufis are an organization of brothers and sisters who have looked deeply at reality. Their goal is a life directed toward the perfection of love, harmony and beauty. They say one comes to understand the mystery of all religions with the single word ‘Ismi Azam.’  Yet, the definition of what is a word is a bit different than our normal thought as Hazrat Inayat Khan says:

“By word is not meant which is audible only to the ears; by word is meant all that is conveyed to you, all that is expressed and comes to you as a revelation.”

Perhaps the word ‘Ismi Azam’ is similar to “Open Sesame.” Not sesame, but says me. Not ‘Ismi Azam,” but ‘It’s Me, I am,’  . . . Or as we have come to know God in our Bible, “I am that I am.”

 

BY ASKING QUESTIONS YOU OPEN YOURSELF TO REVELATION.

What is love to you? How does one act with the world to be in harmony? What is beautiful?

When you ask questions like these, you’re playing WISDOMGAME.
