4 Guideposts on the Path

4 Guideposts on the Path

These four focal points are a summation of centuries of spiritual wisdom and thought. They can help us shift your focus toward the Good, and liberate us from self-limiting patterns of behavior. Meditating on them can help us move forward on the path.

These are four very powerful statements. Read them here:

1. The Present Moment is the Point of Power.
All you have is the present moment–the present thought. All you have to heal is the present thought. All you have to do is focus on the present moment. The future does not exist. (It is just a thought in your mind. The past does not exist. (It is just a thought in your mind.) This is why the present moment is the point of power.

2. You Are the Cause.
The outer world is not the cause. Past events are not the cause. You are the cause. Your present thoughts are what you demonstrate. This means that today is not mortgaged in the sense that today is not the result of what happened yesterday or of outside events. Rather today is unfolding right now because of the way you are thinking right now. That is why all you have to heal is the present thought.

3. No Accusation.
Not only is there nowhere to go and nothing to do, it is important to focus on the fact that each being or form is a Divine creation and has its own integrity and to do everything in one’s power to nurture it and call it forth. This is the true service. This is the true focus on the Good.

Accusation and criticism are heavy burdens to the being who carries these belief patterns. When a being drops accusation and criticism, the Spirit/soul is set free in all its glory.

4. The Eternal Now.
The future becomes the prison of past conditioning because we allow it to become so. If the present thought is right, there is never any need to worry about the future.

There is no future out there waiting for us. There is only the Eternal Now. The Present Moment is the Point of Power. Future and Past do not exist. All you have to do is heal the present thought.

Having been raised in a generation that was trained to plan for the future. I see to many younger people living in the "moment" who are spending like fools ,with no thought to their future, I am seeing a lot of self indulgent ,entitled youth, and the future does seem a worry.
