Since we are all one, connected within the greater energy field, we affect each other through our thoughts, beliefs and intentions. This affecting and influencing occurs whether we are aware of it or not. However, when we let go of our own will and allow the divine, organizing intelligence of the universe guide the process we create the opportunity for significant and transformative change to occur.

While we may not manifest for another person, we can send them healing energy, which they can receive as long as they wish for the healing themselves. We would be playing god if we attempted to apply our will on another, even if for their good. However, we can take full responsibility to clear any thought or condition in us that may be interfering with the life of another. When we heal ourselves, anyone nearby is soothed and comforted by the loving, non-judgmental presence and attention of a healthy being. Those with high vibrations have a healing affect on those around them – rising tides lift all boats.

It’s like the sun that shines without intent or will or plan, thoroughly and constantly. By being itself, the sun warms with its light, never withholding or warming only certain things. Rather, the sun emanates in all directions all the time, and things grow. When we realize we are a soul/mind that is infinite and connected to every other soul/mind and connected to source, we know there are no limits and all things are possible.

Matter and mind are two aspects of the same thing – the outside and inside of matter, respectively. Each little speck of matter throughout the universe is both a speck of matter and a speck of mind. We can impose our will on the creative potential of matter or simply let the mind within that matter speak for itself and reveal the truth of what it contains within. The greatest opportunity we have is to simply hold clear space free of limiting conditioned thinking where the future is entirely free to manifest just as it desires in all its grandeur, splendid and absolute perfection.

When we return to the truth of who we really are, we manifest our lives with intent – purposely and consciously. It’s a choice – meditation quiets conditioned thinking and prayer sets intentions, reprogramming the software that runs “me” and “my” experience. Along the path of enlightenment, we first experience God outside ourselves, then within ourselves until eventually we experience God working through us and finally God working as us. We realize we are God masquerading as our self. The Bhagavad Gita says, “He lives in wisdom who sees himself in all and all in him. He is forever free who has broken out of the ego cage of I and mine.”

Give up the sense of a separate self and gain everything.
