The Creative Forces of the Universe

In 2013, Buddha taught me, in a mystical vision, two essential lessons on the spiritual path: the fundamental nature of reality and the keys to enlightenment.  I have written about them here and in my book, Mornings with the Masters: Mystical Journeys in a Postmodern World.  MWTM front cover

The other day, I was sharing with a client what Buddha taught me about the fundamental nature of reality:  that All Is Well.  As I shared this concept with the client, I was intuitively guided to say, “So, when we trust that All Is Well, we tap into the creative forces of the universe.”*

What I have personally discovered is that, as I believe, affirm in my head, and trust the truth that “All Is Well” even when I wasn’t previously feeling like it, and even when a situation does not have the appearance that all is well, that then, somehow, everything that I was previously worried about has worked out beautifully.  It literally is as though, when we affirm “All Is Well” as the fundamental nature of the Universe, we are saying, “Yes, this is Who God is and this is the Way God is showing up in the world and in my life, through a state of being in which All Is Well.”

For this to occur, we do need to relax and to feel and completely trust that, even though we may have no idea how all is well in the workings of a situation, really, truly All Is Well.

This is the very nature of God.  If we would like miracles to occur, then we need to trust that All Is Well, because when we trust that All Is Well, we are trusting God.  Nothing is more powerful than trusting God, because when we are trusting God, we are also loving God, and loving and accepting what God is creating in our lives, even when we feel afraid we may have messed up.

This is crucial:  even when we have felt afraid that we might have messed something up, we need to trust that, because of Who God is, All Is Well even so.  You see, it is never about us.  It is always about God.  And God is amazing!

We can actually experience God as this huge energy field in which All Is Well.  We can also experience God as a state of being of Perfect Peace.  We can also experience God as an infinite field of Unconditional Love. Further, we can experience God as a state of being in which all is Pure Bliss.

All of these divine qualities are part of God as the state of being in which All Is Well.  Peace, love, and joy or bliss are the energies that make up this quality of being in which All Is Well.  Does this sound heavenly?  Of course, for it is!

The good news is that we can live in this state of being of Perfect Peace, Unconditional Love, Pure Bliss, and continually experience the Truth that All Is Well, when we learn to let go of all else, and merely embrace and allow ourselves to be guided by this higher consciousness in which All Is Well.

And, as Buddha taught me so long ago, the way to get there is to let go of desire, attachment, and fear, and simply release ourselves into the beautifully loving, peaceful, blissful state in which All Is Well.

May it be so!

* I am aware of the helpful view expressed in the book “Power vs. Force” that true power is not forceful.  I believe this wording came to me because in English, the phrase “creative forces of the universe” sounds somehow more powerful, conveying that unlimited sense of power that is foundational to life. In no way does this connote force in the sense of taking away freedoms.  I believe that freedom and free will are part of the fundamental nature of this universe as well.

What better gift for the holidays than a gift leading us closer to truth?  Please consider these as possible gifts for your loved ones or for yourself:

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
