Recently I’ve started to read my metaphysical texts again, usually in the early mornings. It has been a long-time habit of mine, but with this year’s unpleasant (to say the least) personal COVID (and now MAC) experience there wasn’t much desire on my part. Waking up every morning in misery and pain didn’t inspire me to grab a book and dig into higher concepts. Trust me, I should have!
The truth always heals, practice is the key. I’ve known for a long time that thinking and feeling is causative, for all of us. Each person creates their own experience, may it be happiness or pain, their immediate world.
So, after months of discomfort, struggling, doctor’s appointments, therapy and soul searching, I reached out to what I know is the real healer: Truth, the Truth of how Mind works. The Truth about Universal Laws. I finally started to study again on a regular basis.
This morning I picked up a skinny booklet by Neville, a writer from the early 50’s. The booklet is called “Feeling is the Secret”. He talks about our feelings and their effects. Here are some excerpts:
“The world, and all within it, is man’s conditioned consciousness objectified. Consciousness is the cause as well as the substance of the entire world.”
“Be careful of your moods and feelings, for there is an unbroken connection between your feelings and your visible world. Your body is an emotional filter and bears the unmistakable marks of your prevalent emotions.”
“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify.”
Think about those 3 simple paragraphs.
What I’ve learned over the years: There is only one Mind. Much has been said about consciousness and the subconscious, one being the 'awaken state' and one being the 'latent state' of Mind. Make no mistake; they are one and the same, with two different functions.
Our awareness takes in all of the outside impressions, the imprints of our five senses. The subconscious, however, takes these imprints and transform them into our experience.
Our minds have the capacity to reason and feel. Both must be in sync in order to produce a positive experience. So, the question “How do I feel today?” should be carefully examined and answered honestly.
However, whatever we think will not have a positive manifestation unless we keep our feelings on the right side. Right feeling gives birth to right ideas and right experiences. Right feeling, or love, is the mother of all creation and appreciation is the treasure chest of the heart!
I appreciate you!
