It’s not a bad idea to occasionally spend a little time thinking about things you take for granted. Plain everyday things.” – Evan Davis

Physical Inventory

In this session we’re going to assist our readers with doing something that businesses do all the time, taking a physical inventory. Unlike a business, however, we’re not going to put a price tag on what we’re counting, as that would actually be a very tough thing to do.

Do you have normal hands? Do you have the use of both of them? It’s okay if they don’t work perfectly or even if they aren’t completely normal, but if they do, then we have one thing to be grateful for, a big one. How about each of your fingers and thumbs, do they all work? If you’re missing one, we won’t count it. Do they bend at the joints and return back to being straight? If so, there’s another thing we can be happy and grateful about.

Do you have all your fingernails? Are they in reasonably good shape, too? Mark that down, too, if so. Are your hands covered with skin to protect them? Inside your hands, are your bones in reasonably good order? Can you grasp things with them? Do your “opposible thumbs oppose your fingers properly so that you can get a great grip on things you need to?

Are both hands fairly healthy and apparently free from infection? That would indicate that your immune system is working in that area of your body. Inside, do your cells in your hands seem to be getting the proper amount of nourishment and oxygen to function, and is it apparent that the cell’s waste is being carted off in the bloodstream, too?

Do your hands normally feel acceptably warm most of the time? Can you use them for hours at a time without wearing them out? Do your hands fit well inside gloves when you need them for protection from cold, germs, or chemicals? If you are bathing for awhile and they get all wrinkly, do they get smoother again after a short time?

Now, if you don’t have hands, perhaps you’ll want to substitute something else, this isn’t about hands- this topic- it’s about feeling gratitude for what we have. Hands are very useful implements, indeed. If you do have functioning hands, and you need to strongly tilt the balance in your favor between good and bad thoughts- you could list each thing you can do with your hands and how you feel about having the ability to do that. Maybe start with holding the hand of a baby. You ARE truly blessed, and the only thing that can hinder you from knowing it and feeling it is what you focus your attention on.

Vibrational Challenges

Let’s first talk about what we mean when we speak of vibration. If we pluck a guitar string, it moves back and forth very quickly, producing a certain sound which is dependent for it’s pitch on the diameter of the string, what it’s made of, and how tightly it is stretched. The sound emitting from its vibration will be in harmony with certain other musical sounds and will be out of harmony with many more.

If another musical sound is in harmony with the guitar string’s sound, the result sounds pleasant. If not, the result doesn’t sound like music, but rather- just noise. Now let’s remind folks that everything in the physical universe is made up of tiny things which also vibrate- and do so at almost unimaginably fast speeds, mainly because they are so tiny. Thought energy has a vibrational pitch to it as well, and we can divide the resulting output into two categories: Thoughts which are in harmony with what we desire, and thoughts that are not.

That’s pretty simple, so far. Now let’s add to that this element- that thoughts that aren’t in harmony with what we desire are still in harmony with something. What that would be is the things we don’t desire. Bad thoughts, thoughts that make us feel bad, are in harmony with the bad things we don’t desire to have or to have happen.

The way to determine whether or not what we are thinking is in line with what we want to happen, and not the the things we don’t want is very simple. All we need to do is realize if we feel good or bad at the moment. If we’re feeling bad, we need to switch it up and begin feeling good, pronto. How do we do that? We begin focusing our thoughts on those things that make us feel good about ourselves. We begin to take inventory of everything we have and have going for us and begin feeling happy and grateful for all of that.

The ability we have within our minds to create the best circumstances for our existence is truly unlimited because there is no limit to all that we have to be grateful for and that we are then in turn- feeling that gratitude. Next time we meet, we’ll show just how extensive our inventory of good things is. Bless you today, bless you in every way!

Blending the Physical and the Spiritual

We’ve been on the subject of perception and in this final installment, we’re going to make note of how perceptions blend the physical world we see and live in with our Spiritual thoughts, feelings, intonations- or, in short- our qualia. We have the benefit of a pretty good interface with the physical world, though our senses. They include the five senses most commonly referred to, but other senses, too- like our sense of balance, our sense of feeling degrees of hot and cold, and our sense of feeling acceleration.

All of the senses we named are a bridge to our physical world and our existence in it, and without them we’d really have a difficult time navigating through it. Just the same, we rely on our senses in a “balanced way” but not in the same way a dog’s senses are balanced They perceive things much differently than we do, and we often use their senses to supplement ours if they are better at a given task.

Virtually every form of life has some sense of the world around it, although that perception varies tremendously from our species or others, in many- maybe even most- cases. Each species has adapted differently since each has other parameters it must meet to thrive and survive. We, however, think of ourselves as seeing “the whole truth” but that’s a myth. We have very limited senses in almost every area. Why? That’s because it’s all we need. We have the gift of brain power which is exceptional.

At this point, let’s talk about that brain power. We have this Spiritual connection that we can explore and by “Spiritual”, we mean everything non-physical. Aside from the normal logic we can engage to understand what our senses tell us, we can do deep thinking. We can do expanded awareness thinking through meditation or yoga, too. We can center our thoughts through prayer or autosuggestion, as well. It is in this way that we differ from all other forms of life- as far as we know.

Lastly, we are creative beings, ourselves. What we lack, we can create. That’s different than manipulating our world like some animals learn to do in order to eat. We have the ability to perceive how the world is and then create how we want it to be for us. Let’s use that power more often, shall we?

Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves

How can I become far more creative than I am today?”
