Everything is Connected to Everything Else

Everything is Connected to Everything Else

In the physical world, we have many different ways of acquiring information: Newspapers, books, television, radio, cell phone conversations, shortwave radios–all these ways of tapping into various kinds of information, and many more, are readily available to us.

You can simply tune in to them with your sensory apparatus–look, listen, feel, smell, taste the environment around you. But if you want to tap in to the information at the level of the soul, you need a different way to get the information.

We don’t normally have our attention in that unseen dimension, but everything that’s happening in the visible world has its roots there. Everything is connected with everything else. In the spiritual world, those connections become visible. But in the physical world, we only glimpse the connections in the clues given to us through coincidence.

As our attention creates energy, intention brings about the transformation of that energy. Attention and intention are the most powerful tools of the spiritually adept. They are the triggers for attracting both a certain kind of energy and a certain kind of information.

So the more attention you put on coincidences, the more you attract other coincidences, which will help you clarify their meaning. Putting your attention on the coincidence attracts the energy, and then asking the question, “What does it mean?” attracts the information.

The answer might come as a certain insight, or intuitive feeling, or an encounter, or a new relationship. The more attention you put on coincidences and the more you inquire into their significance, the more often the coincidences occur and the more clearly their meaning comes into view.

"But in the physical world, we only glimpse the connections in the clues given to us through coincidence."
Yes, but there is no coincidence! We THINK situations are coincidental, that is a term we use. We pick up on the connections when we are tuned in, ready and open for them.

cont.....Marlene C's comment grabbed my attention.She says.." I feel the connection of the seen with the unseen and I understand the power of thought waves yet I must be sabotaging myself at critical junctures because nothing happens." A previous blog was concerned with surrender which comes from submission.But submit and surrender to what? Here,Dot A's comment hit on the subject...mainly about the wilingness to understand and learn..She says..." all things work for the good for those who believe" .That is what God says .It is not about believing in self but believing in submission and surrender to His leading.It is then that things DO happen....maybe not what we want but rather what is good and needed.And we understand .If we do not believe then we rely on SELF.

Some Blogs generate inclination and more diverse comments than others and this topic is one of those.It shows how diverse and different we can be.Who we are stimulates the responses we make.Many reasons make up our personalities and characters right back to when we were first born.The responsiblities parents have are more than just being providers of the physical needs.The examples parents set with their own characters and personalities will affect their offspring.But even the contact with others also leaves it's mark.And such contact here by commenting will have some sort of impact on some who read them.The comments indicate a bit of ourselves.Some comments are open -ended,some are subjective of the commentors view while others are more about "self".
A previous blog was more concerned with " choice".That is something we all do ALL THE TIME .The choices we make are the result of WHO we are.Deepak says.." we don't normaly have our attention on the unseen dimension but all that happens has it's roots there."Unfortunately,for so many,the realisation of that evades them so they don't recognise who they are themselves.But who we are is indicated by our words and actions.The " roots" of those actions are form the unseen dimension....the spirit which controls our thoughts from where the actions orginate.

Dot A.- Were you reading my mind? I feel like I could have written your comment but I believe you articulated it better than the randomness floating around in my head. Thank you.
