The Energy Continuum, 10, Mental Equivalents

I loose the world from all I thought it was. This is something we’d say about the mental ‘realm’ of the Energy Continuum, from within the spiritual ‘realm.’ I loose the world from all I thought it was. From the spiritual place, we can see that our thoughts are creative; that our thoughts mold our feelings and actions; that the pure, invisible, unformed energy of spirit flows first through our minds, then into our feelings and finally into manifestation, into ‘reality.’

Functioning like jello molds, to give shape to our feelings and actions, our thoughts, what Ernest Holmes called, ‘mental equivalents,’ shape our feelings and actions. Different thoughts, different mental equivalents, would produce different feelings and actions. Saying, ‘I loose the world from all I thought it was’, says I’m going to release my mental equivalents, my thought patterns and habits, so that something new, or changed, or different; something I can’t even imagine or conceive of, may flow forth from spirit.

This opportunity, this freedom from the past, this creative opening can only originate in and with spirit. From the place of pure, unformed energy, where there are no mental equivalents, where anything and everything is possible, we can see and understand how our mental equivalents give form to and shape to the other wise formless energy. Of itself the energy is neutral – not good or bad - without form or shape, and wanting none. It is pure beingness. It simply is. It has nothing to prove, nothing to do, no place to go and no people to see. The energy in the spiritual realm simply is. We, with our egos and sense of separation from pure beingness, are the ones who give it shape and meaning, have something to prove, something to do, places to go and people to see. As egos, we do, we need, we want; the energy knows nothing of all that. It simply is.

In the spiritual realm, one with the energy, un-separated from it, without egos, we are as spirit is, pure energy, pure beingness, without needs or desires. In the spiritual realm we can say, “I loose the world from all I thought it was,” and mean it, resting in the cosmic peace of our ego-less, need-less, beingness. Then, when we return to our egos, as it seems we must, we return rejuvenated and more creative, more in-tune with our reality as spiritual beings having an earthly experience; better able to make a contribution to a world that works for everyone and everything.
