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.
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.
