Invisible Power

“To believe in the things you can see and touch is no belief at all. But to believe in the unseen is both a triumph and a blessing.” Bob Proctor

We cannot account for the seen without having faith in the unseen. To believe in Life is to believe in the invisible.” SOM Text p 407

The emphasis in yesterday’s post and in this one, is not to suggest that we ignore or deny the evidence of our senses. Doing that will only create problems, because we believe we live in a material, sensory world, and need our senses to survive. We still have to wash our hands, brush our teeth, eat, drink, pee and poop and not ply in traffic. But the more we come to see our experiences here and the concept of ‘here’ - the world itself as somewhat arbitrary, as based upon consensus reality, as the products of our social, psychological conditioning, we can control and change them.

Like the wind, we can’t see the invisible spiritual essence of life, but we can see the results of a belief in it. Be still and know. When we turn our attention to the deepest, mos centered place within, we can sense Life’s invisible spiritual essence, our connection to it and our reality as It.

Just as it is possible to harvest the invisible power of the wind, so can we harvest the invisible power of spirit, and manifest it here, in the ego’s nightmare. Learning to center and keep our focus on what we want and what works for all concerned, instead of what we don’t want enables us to do that. We manifest what we dwell upon – spiritually, mentally and emotionally. As we develop our belief and reliance upon our spiritual reality, we experience more of it and are able to contribute to a world that works for everyone.
