The paradox: Though we live, move and have our being in Divine Intelligence, we may live our entire lives not consciously knowing it!
We learn through the light and dark sides of life, the human species travels the path of least resistance…meaning, we seek comfort and avoid pain.
It is a basic human principle.
The subconscious has been programmed negatively. Through the eons we have operated from the fight or flight response, always looking for protection and safety.
Though Divine Intelligence (DI) operates every cell, organ, muscle, tissue in our body, we may not recognize it. Scientist share a plethora of information about how life exists sans Divine Power.
Divine Intelligence orchestrates our lives for soul growth.
Though every event and person we meet is set up and orchestrated by DI we may wonder why such events or people are in our lives when the consequences are painful.
Even though many of us may not know Divine Intelligence first hand, it is the Source of our growth, development…everything.
Many of us know DI in the surge of positive energy in prayer/meditation/contemplation/inspiration, a sunset/sunrise, through family, friends, beloveds, the joy of a child, celebrated work, a creation, or a warm smile from a passer by.
The mystery of Divine Intelligence also places people in our lives to mirror our inner worlds. People who can trigger our issues, problems, denials, hidden agendas are gifts from DI. Until we get this, we live in an uninformed matrix. They are as significant as our beloveds.
On the other hand, we have soul mates, everywhere, who mirror both the light, beauty and dark within us. These blessed comrades are able to do so without judgment or accusation. The more we discover our soul, the more we attract those who reflect our growing seed of Divinity.
The Physical Body is the Mediator
The concurrent feelings and emotions we feel from events, people, animals, dreams, work, play; every aspect of life are messengers. These emotions (energy in motion) are reflected in our bodies . The body holds all the answers.
It is the troubleshooter between our hidden shadow selves deep in the subconscious and our conscious mind. The body takes all the hits from our hidden unacknowledged selves.
Not only does the body house our soul, it is the mediator between our inner and outer worlds. A clarion call is sent out moment by moment to lead us onward and upward, whether through darkness or light, both are equally valuable.
Our physical bodies respond in like to the emotions that are triggered.
Hormones are the control center of our physical and mental wellbeing. The feelings we feel are chemical reactions in the body. The feel good hormones are:
- Serotonin is the happy hormone regulating mood, preventing depression. Exercise, eating, particular carbohydrates, and sunlight secrete this hormone.
- Endorphins – reduce anxiety, sensitivity to pain, exercise is a benefit.
- Dopamine – creates mental alertness, concentration, memory, attention. Bad moods are a sign of a lack of dopamine. Protein is a benefit.
- Phenylethamine is the brain love hormone and is contained in cocoa beans. Why we love chocolate!
- Ghrelin reduces stress and is released when we are hungry. Good idea to not eat too much as this hormone relaxes.
- Oxytocin – the love drug hormone, the touch hormone, is stimulated in birth, sex, breast feeding. The “in love” hormone develops attachment to the other.
The three major feel bad hormones are adrenaline, cortisol, and norepinephrine secreted by the adrenal glands when we feel under attack.
…And the #1 alleviator to release all the beneficial hormones is our outlook on life, our perceptions, how we see the occurrences in our lives. The human is constantly scanning to remain in the state of homeostasis.
If we know, if we get it, if we are awakened, our responses to stimuli increasingly is met with wisdom, no need for the roller coaster ride.
Our Belief System and Perceptions dictate our well being.
Besides meditation our belief system, perceptions, opinion, awareness predicts our state of balance and peace.
If the trigger is joy we feel a lift, an easiness in breathing, a warm glow in the heart, a rush of endorphins, a flush of satisfaction; the feel good hormones are activated.
It we feel attacked, fearful, intimidated, embarrassed, we set off cortisol . Our system tightens and shuts down for escape, the sympathetic nervous system prepares us for flight to safety, or if no where to go fight.
So…if we do not move into a higher awareness, it is simple to understand the need for all the addictions and defense mechanisms to soothe ourselves in a protective response.
Yet, if we awaken to Divine Intelligence, if we acknowledge all of the above, that DI operates everything in our lives, physically, mentally, spiritually, every crack and cranny, we begin to self actualize and become the fullest potential we were meant to be.
The English poet William Blake wrote:
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.”
We must realize our world is what we choose to see. The more we open our eyes to truth, the more we allow the Life Force to bless and lift our life. As we step through the cobwebs of control and self righteousness, wisdom is our guide beckoning us onward through intuition and inspiration.
As we see through the illusion of control, recognize our emotions as teacher, the power of intention, self deception and denial, the mirrors of life, when we can honestly look at ourselves and not play the victim, martyr, child, etc. we lighten up, or move into in-light-in-me, (enlightenment).
Our minds are open to the understanding it’s task is to serve the heart, the seat of Divine Intelligence, it must listen to the Inner Voice – how DI communicates to us, we recognize and acknowledge there is nothing but the Divine and it’s Intelligence is us.
Joseph Sieber Benner, a Lutheran minister, wrote the book, “The Impersonal Life” in 1914. He penned his work Anonymous because he did not believe the people of his parish or time would understand the profound nature of his writings.
Elvis Presley discovered the Impersonal Life which he carried everywhere he went.
The words spoke so simply and directly to him he gave volumes of the book away. Elvis had all that life could offer materially, yet knew the words of The Impersonal Life were his real treasure, where he found the Light he was so hungry for.
Sadly, he was unable to make the leap and needed drugs to bridge the gap of his material and spiritual worlds. One of the addictions so many of us employ to relieve the pain of not being WHOLE.
Please enjoy a video of key concepts in The Impersonal Life:
We hear it everywhere, it is the time of awakening, enlightenment, empowerment, our planet is taking a transformational leap into higher consciousness. We are at the junction in time, where if we so choose, may be transformed in the twinkling of an eye. We must let go of yesterday and tomorrow to live in the eternal NOW of grace and heart. We must be doers of the Word and not just hearers.
Blessings to one and all!
To our Impersonal Lives,
