Origin of Certain Thoughts (Part II)
Continued from "Origin of Certain Thoughts, Part I"
If you haven't experienced any near misses, you may have at least heard or read about them. When people describe their near misses, they say things such as "The bullet missed my heart by just a few inches," or "I was only a few feet away from the car that crashed into the crowd," or "Had I not turned around, I would have been killed." Are these misses luck, coincidence, or some power at work? I think you know the answer.
And how about the meeting you forgot to attend. As long as the meeting went well, you probably would not think much of it. But what if a fire engulfed the building where the meeting took place and many people were hurt or killed? Chances are that you would realize you would have been in that fire too, and that forgetting the meeting probably saved your life. How do you think it happened that you forgot?
What about those random events we call luck or coincidence? If the so-called lucky break or coincidence involves meeting someone who gives you the break, then you should know that your guide and the other person's guide may have worked hard to get the two of you together. Our guides have a responsibility to remind us of certain things or help bring about certain events that would not have happened without their assistance.
Remember, they have the blueprint of your life in their possession, and they are constantly checking to make sure nothing is missed.
How about that sudden illness that prevented you from attending the party of the year? Yes, the one you were so disappointed to miss. Have you considered that something disastrous might have happened to you had you gone to that party? What does the inconvenience and discomfort of minor illness matter when something so much more important is at stake?
This example shows that we can be helped and protected by things which are generally not considered to be good, such as illness. And it shows that there may be some truth to the adage "Every disappointment is a blessing." Guess who may have contributed to this blessing in disguise? You guessed right. Your guide will do whatever is necessary to protect you from negative experiences you don't need to attain your goal in this incarnation.
Perhaps you had a grandfather like Mr. Rich, who discovered the artificial gene that cured many diseases, became wealthy, and left a fortune to your dad and subsequently to you. Do you know who guided Mr. Rich through the discovery process? This illustration shows that we benefit not only from the direct assistance of our own guide but also from other people's guides, at least indirectly. But let's not lose sight of the primary goal: the cure of disease.
Grandpa Rich may have been a renowned scientist or medical doctor here on earth in another life and on the other side, and may have made this discovery available on earth with the help of many scientists and other cosmic forces from the other side. To accomplish this, he was probably reminded of the processes, directed, and guided by forces from the other side. And since nothing comes from the other side without passing by our guide, there is no doubt that Grandpa Rich's guide played a major role in this case.
If you are at the bottom of the economic ladder, one of the so-called less fortunate among us, it may seem that you cannot lift yourself up financially no matter what you do. You may wonder if you have a guide and why he or she has not helped you achieve some financial success.
I suspect that you already know part of the answer to this question. Financial success may be important to you now, but it wasn't that important to you on the other side when you chose your goal, with perfect knowledge and information at your disposal. Your guide knows this. How can you learn what it is like to do without the things you long for unless you experience doing without? How else can you learn what it feels like to sleep in the cold or go hungry without experiencing it? And remember the earlier discussion about cosmic responsibilities. By now you should be convinced that no matter what your circumstances, you are no less valued or important than a billionaire.
We're all on different paths. You may have already experienced a life of wealth and plenty in the past and decided to use this incarnation to learn about existence at the other end, filled with wants and extreme financial hardship.
You have chosen to have specific experiences in this life, to reach a specific goal. These experiences are always for your good. Perhaps attaining financial success in this life would cause you to deviate from the path you're supposed to be on through this life. It is part of your guide's responsibility to ensure that you remain on your path, even if it means guiding you away from financial freedom. Isn't that the reason for having a guide, someone objective enough to help you stay on the path you've chosen for yourself? Be assured that your guide is working hard to prevent you from deviating from the goal you've chosen for this incarnation.
So the next time a great idea comes to you or you achieve success, no matter what represents success to you, don't take all the credit. It may not be entirely of your own making. Show your gratitude by using some of that success to help others.

The Mirror of Truth
James 1:23-24Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like?Standing, gazing ahead An image of Truth has been placed before me There, a reflection of myself.So vivid, and so clear Every detail has been meticulously captured It sickens me to think it must be me.
What Is The Spiritual Path?
For many years of my life, I thought the spiritual path had something to do with following one of the major world religions or pursuing an Eastern practice. I even thought it had something to do with morality and ethics.

Thank You Lord, Most Graciously
There are moments in the believer's life when the Spirit of the living God gets in us and gives birth to thanksgiving and holy reflection. Moments when we really comprehend how good God is and how good He has been.
Spiritual Intelligence: How It Benefits A Person
In one forum, one participant posted this query:I think quite a few of us believe in the inadequacy of traditional science being unable to explain our universe, being unable to explain how to have a positive attitude, and how to live. We believe that possibly, there are no accidents, and the life we are living in is our choice.
Heroes and Heroines - Contemplating Conscious Evolution

Kundalini and Going Where Were Supposed To Go
In the early 90's I had a spontaneous Kundalini Awakening after a near death experience, which I wrote about in a different article. Here's what happened next.
The Pizza Parable
Behold, a certain young maiden did often times and at strange hours greatly desire a pizza. This would often happen in the second or the third watch, when home delivery was not available.
It is my personal view that the reason we call things that we don't understand "miracles" is because we are trying to understand them within a very limited framework. This framework is that of our beliefs which have been based largely on scientific inquiry and also exclusively on the use of our intellect or rational mind.
A Life That Is Purpose Driven
I started reading the book "The Purpose Driven Life" about 45 days ago. This book is written by Rick Warren.
Our Virtual Reality Reality
In earlier articles entitled "We Are Not Our Personalities", "Eliminating the Past" and "Fallacies About the Inner Child" I discuss how, employing a powerful new healing modality called the Mind Resonance Process(TM) (MRP), what we call memories, child ego states (i.e.
How Psychic Are You?
To find out how psychic you are, try answering the following questions.? Have you been attracted to the occult ever since you were a child?? Do you often complete other people's sentences for them?? Do you always buy the perfect birthday gift or Christmas present even though they haven't told you what they wanted?? Have you ever thought about something that you wanted and then miraculously had it pop into your life the next day? This could be something very simple such as the desire for a certain kind of Chinese food or a pair of shoes.
The Emptiness That Binds The Universe
What is the opportunity here? What is the benefit of this difficulty? What is the gift? ~ Marc AllenIt's strange--behind the terror and confusion of the world, behind the frustration of things not working out for us or anyone else, and behind the unending battles of struggle--there is an inner joy, a radiance that shines in the heart, an awareness that exists forever. One day, when we have all packed up our toys and gone home, we will look back on these days of earth as a marvelous adventure.
Moksha - Salvation Hinduism... Highlights Concept and the Path
Is it not true that only after gaining Enlightenment (Self-Realization) that one can reach the stage of Moksha (Salvation).Moksha is that ephemeral truth of life without which human beings cannot sustain themselves.
You Are What You Think
One of the first things you will find that God will start to do with you if you have decided to enter into a true sanctification process with Him is to try and put right thinking into your thought process.What you choose to think about and dwell on in this life will make or break you as to what type of person you will end up becoming in this life.
Our God of More than Enough
There is no shortage in the abundance of blessings we are promised as God's children. We should expect to receive from Him if we believe the promises He's given us in His Word.
The Meaning of Life
Recently I was watching a re-run of "Everybody Loves Raymond". This particular episode was about a life long question we all ask.
The Magic of Tarot Card Reading
The magic of the tarot was obvious to me the first time that someone confirmed that my tarot card reading was accurate. Of course, the first time that I did a tarot reading for someone else I really had no reason to believe that the reading I was about to give could be so revealing.
There is no incident in the life of Moses which I consider more epochal than this one; the encounter with the Red Sea. Here was a man who was faced with a great dilemma.
Choose Life or Death
No one, not even God can make us choose the right things. He gave us the freedom of choice where our own lives are concerned.
