Kraft der Gedanken

Achte auf deine Gefühle. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Gedanken. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Handlungen. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Bedürfnisse. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Sei bei dir. Und der Rest kommt von alleine.

Achte auf deine Gedanken (aus: Zeit zu Leben)

Zitat von der Seite Zeit zu Leben (Download April 2013)

„Der Schüler fragt seinen Meister, der beim Volk und den Königen für seine Weitsichtigkeit und Weisheit bekannt ist: ‚Meister, was hilft mir dabei, glücklich zu sein? Was hilft mir dabei, meinen Weg zu gehen, voller Kraft und Stärke? Was bringt mir Wohlstand, Liebe, Sicherheit und inneren Frieden?‘ Und der Meister sagt: ‚Achte auf deine Gefühle. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Gedanken. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Handlungen. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Achte auf deine Bedürfnisse. Ohne sie zu bewerten. Jeden Tag. Sei bei dir. Und der Rest kommt von alleine.‘“

Marianne Williamson über die Kraft der Gedanken

Aus: Rückkehr zur Liebe: Harmonie, Lebenssinn und Glück durch "Ein Kurs in Wundern" von Marianne Williamson
Originaltitel: Return To Love. Originalverlag: HarperCollins Publishers
Aus dem Englischen von Susanne Kahn-Ackermann, ISBN: 978-3-442-12209-7, Verlag: Goldmann

Seite 250: „Es ist Gottes Wille, das wir jetzt glücklich sind. Mit unserer Bitte, dass Gottes Wille geschehen möge, weisen wir unseren Geist an, sich auf die Schönheit im Leben zu konzentrieren und all die Gründe zum Feiern statt zum Trauern zu sehen.

…das Glücklichsein hängt nicht von äußeren Umständen ab. Es gibt Menschen, die alle Gründe dieser Welt haben, glücklich zu sein, und es doch nicht sind. Und es gibt Menschen, die echte Probleme haben und doch glücklich sind. Der Schlüssel zum Glück liegt in der Entscheidung, glücklich zu sein.“

Seite 251: „Sie können sich auf das konzentrieren, was in Ihrem Leben nicht stimmt, oder auf das, was stimmt. Und worauf Sie sich konzentrieren, davon bekommen Sie mehr. Schöpfung ist eine Erweiterung des Gedankens. Richten Sie Ihre Gedanken auf den Mangel, und Sie bekommen Mangel. Richten Sie Ihre Gedanken auf die Fülle, und Sie bekommen Fülle.“ Auch: „Wir müssen mit unseren negativen Gefühlen in Kontakt kommen, aber nur, um sie loszulassen und die Liebe zu fühlen, die dahinter existiert.“

Byron Katie THE WORK - wie man mit belastenden Gedanken umgehen kann

"The Work of Byron Katie" ist ein Weg, jene Gedanken zu identifizieren und zu hinterfragen, die alles Leiden in der Welt verursachen. Es ist ein Weg, der zu innerem Frieden und zu Frieden mit der Welt führt. Jede/r mit einem offenen Geist kann "The Work" machen.

"The Work" von Byron Katie ist eine einfache Methode, um belastende Gedanken und Gefühle (das heißt: Konstruktionen der eigenen Wirklichkeit) anhand einer Reihe von Fragen zu überprüfen. Die Beantwortung dieser Fragen (ohne Rechtfertigung und Verteidigung) führt rasch zu einem wohltuenden Perspektivenwechsel sowie zu hilfreichen Einsichten. "The Work" kann wesentlich dazu beitragen, dass das Leben und Handeln authentischer und erfüllter wird.

Einerseits leiden wir oft an negativen Glaubenssätzen (also Gedanken, die wir für sehr wahr halten) über uns selbst, unsere Partner, unseren Beruf, das Leben, die Welt usw. und andererseits an einer Entfremdung von unseren ureigensten Gefühlen und Bedürfnissen.

Dr. Sepp Fennes (Beratung + Training) schreibt eine kurze Anleitung zu "The Work". Diese habe ich leicht adaptiert:

Schritt 1:
Belastende Gedanken erkennen und aufschreiben
Jedes belastende Gefühl wird von belastenden Gedanken verursacht. Daher identifizieren wir zunächst die belastenden Gedanken und schreiben sie auf, um sie mit den Fragen von "The Work" überprüfen zu können.
Beispiel: Er/sie respektiert mich nicht.

Schritt 2:
Folgende Fragen dazu bewusst und langsam beantworten
(Stell Dir eine Frage, werde still, schließe die Augen, falls das für dich passt, und lausche der Antwort aus Deinem Inneren):

1. Ist das wahr: Er/sie respektiert mich nicht?
Als Antwort gilt nur "Ja" oder "Nein", ohne jede Rechtfertigung oder Begründung. Bei "Ja" gehe zur Frage 2, bei "Nein" gehe gleich zur Frage 3.

2. Kann ich mit absoluter Sicherheit wissen, dass das wahr ist: Er/sie respektiert mich nicht?
Antwort: Wieder nur "Ja" oder "Nein".

3. Wie reagiere ich (körperlich, emotionell, verhaltensmäßig), wenn ich denke: Er/sie respektiert mich nicht?

Unterfrage: Wessen Angelegenheit ist es, wenn er/sie mich nicht respektiert?
Bin ich in meiner Angelegenheit / der Angelegenheit des anderen / einer göttlichen Angelegenheit?

4. Wer bin ich (körperlich, emotionell, verhaltensmäßig) ohne den Gedanken: Er/sie respektiert mich nicht?

Schritt 3:
Den Gedanken umkehren und dazu konkrete Beispiele für die Umkehrungen finden

Umkehrung ins Gegenteil: Er/sie respektiert mich.

Umkehrung auf den anderen: Ich respektiere ihn/sie nicht.

Ich-Umkehrung: Ich respektiere mich nicht.

Frage Dich bei jeder Umkehrung:
Kann das auch wahr sein? Oder ist es vielleicht sogar wahrer als der belastende Gedanke?
Wenn ja, welche konkreten Beispiele findest Du dafür?

Schritt 4:
Still werden und nachspüren.

Bei „The Work" geht es immer um das Hinschauen, das geistige Offenwerden für die Wirklichkeit jenseits unserer gedanklichen Hypothesen über sie. Es geht nie um Anklage oder Schuldzuweisung, weder zur eigenen Person noch zu anderen.

Sei sanft mit Dir! Es ist ein Anfang.

Byron Katie THE WORK - Alleinsein mit den eigenen Gedanken

(gefunden auf Facebook im Juni 2016)

"Being alone most of the time is not a bad thing when you love your thoughts. And it's not a bad thing to be alone when you don't love your thoughts and have inquiry, because you're dealing with your thoughts. Love those. You don't have to go out into the world to love people. Love your thoughts. Question them until you understand them. For me, you know, I names that love. I'm no longer at war with what I think. I understand. So, also, time alone gives you time. It can even give you a career in questioning your thoughts about you, us, the world, yourself, as you understand you to be. And good you are not invited out much and you don't have to be invited. You can go alone. And wherever you go, you're going to go with your mind. So, you're never alone."

Eine „paradoxe Frage“ zum Jahresbeginn

(erhalten per Mail Anfang 2015) Statt den üblichen Neujahrswünschen stelle ich heute eine interessante Frage in den Raum: „Was müsstest du tun oder denken, um dich in diesem Jahr immer wieder schlecht zu fühlen?“ Stelle dir diese Frage und beantworte sie aufrichtig! Vielleicht gibt dir diese Antwort eine Idee, was du in diesem Jahr tun oder lassen möchtest. Anmerkung: Oder geh noch weiter, stell dir diese Frage jeden Tag nach dem Aufwachen.

Ein wichtiges Buch zum Thema, denn unsere Wortwahl zeigt unsere Gedanken.

Vorwort

Negative Wörter haben wir Menschen erfunden. Ich behaupte aber, dass es für jedes lieblose Wort mindestes EIN Synonym gibt, das die Essenz des Begriffs — die Kernaussage - positiv trifft. Selbstverständlich kommt bei einigen Umwandlungen auch der Humor nicht zu kurz! Würden wir uns öfter einer positiveren, kreativeren und sanfteren Sprache bedienen, könnten wir uns damit einigen Kummer und viel Arger ersparen - denn Worte sind mächtig! Im Johannes-Evangelium heißt es im Zusammenhang mit der Erschaffung der Welt: »Am Anfang war das Wort, und das Wort war bei Gott, und das Wort war Gott.« Durch Worte geben wir unserer Schöpferkraft Ausdruck. Wir bewirken damit Ereignisse in unserem Umfeld und damit auch unsere Lebensumstände.

Auf den Punkt gebracht bedeutet das, dass wir unsere ureigenste Wirklichkeit ebenso negativ erleben, wie wir sie mit negativen Aussagen beschreiben!

Automatisch glauben wir dann tatsächlich, die Welt sei unserer Wortwahl entsprechend böse oder schlecht - was aber nicht bedeuten soll, dass ich menschliches Versagen im Umgang mit unserer Mutter Erde gutheiße. Vielmehr passiert es leider oft aufgrund negativer Wortwahl, dass wir das Gute nicht mehr sehen. Dasselbe passiert, wenn wir für eine Selbstbeschreibung negative Wörter verwenden, die uns klein, hilflos oder unwürdig erscheinen lassen. Aufgrund dessen ist es nur allzu logisch, dass wir uns klein, hilflos oder unwürdig - eben mies - fühlen. Mit Hilfe einer anderen Wortwahl würde sich unser in vielen Punkten negatives Selbstbild sofort zum Besseren verwandeln. Auch würden wir uns sehr rasch zurückerinnern, was wir im Kern unseres Wesens sind: Gottes Ebenbild. Worte haben Macht. Daher empfinde ich es als Privileg, mir der Wirksamkeit von Worten bewusst zu sein. Es ist wahrlich ein Unterschied, ob sich Mathilde als hässliche alte Schachtel bezeichnet ... oder als außergewöhnlich wertvolle Schatztruhe. Auch Heinrich müsste sich nicht als dreckiger Fettwanst fühlen. Anders formuliert würde er zum Beispiel mit dem Wertgefühl eines naturbelassenen Bombers durchs Leben spazieren.

Eine mögliche Schwierigkeit beim Verwandeln negativer Wörter ist das punktgenaue Treffen des Wortkerns. Ich kenne einige Personen, die mit dieser kreativen Beschäftigung zwar sehr viel Spaß haben, aber trotzdem manchmal in die Falle des Gegenteils tappen! Das wäre falsch. Die Essenz des negativen Wortes - die Kernaussage - muss in jedem Fall getroffen werden, wenn wir uns der Sprache der Optimisten bedienen möchten, weil andernfalls der Sinn verloren ginge.

Wenn du die Sprache der Optimisten benützt, verändert sich nicht die Wirklichkeit -sondern deine Sichtweise von der Wirklichkeit verwandelt sich und dein Selbstwertgefühl tankt auf. Worte sind mächtig! Ich erwähnte es schon.
Den Begriff »Gotteswörterbuch« als Metapher für die Sprache der Optimisten findest du erstmals in meinem Buch: »Erzählungen vom lieben Gott«. Darin ermuntert der liebe Gott seine Geschöpfe, statt sich in Selbstkritik, Groll, Verzweiflung oder Traurigkeit zu verlieren, die Sprache der Optimisten zu benützen.

Liebe Leserinnen und Leser, ich wünsche mir, dass ihr mithilfe dieses etwas anderen Wörterbuchs einen Hauch der vielen positiven Botschaften erahnt, die sich in negativen Worten verstecken, indem ihr den Vorhang beseitigt, der dieses Wunder vor euch verbirgt. Jedes lieblose Wort ist in seiner Essenz LIEBE - weil es nur EINE wahre Wirklichkeit gibt. Dies bestätigt uns auch der »Kurs in Wundern«: Es gibt nur zwei Sichtweisen von der Wirklichkeit: Liebe oder Angst. Da Angst aber nur eine Illusion des Egos ist, ist sie bedeutungslos für die einzig wahre Wirklichkeit, die es gibt: Liebe.

Damit du befreit auf die liebevolle Essenz negativer Wörter blicken kannst, verrate ich dir gerne einen simplen Trick: Schicke deinen Verstand auf Urlaub und schau mit den Augen eines Wesens, das nur Humor, Freude und Liebe kennt, auf scheinbar negative Eigenschaften und Verhaltensweisen. Auch Hauptwörter, die allgemein als »Schimpfwörter« bekannt sind, kannst du auf solche Weise transformieren. »ICH (!) gebe allem die Bedeutung, die es für mich hat.« Mit diesem Zitat aus dem »Kurs in Wundern« wünsche ich dir nun viel Freude mit diesem Büchlein. Bei einigen Wörtern hielt ich eine kurze Erklärung für notwendig, die das Erkennen der wahren Botschaft für dich noch leichter sichtbar macht.

An dieser Stelle danke ich meiner Freundin Doris für ihr großartiges Engagement. Sie stand mir in vielen gemeinsamen Wortumwandlungsstunden zur Seite.
Eure Christa Kössner

Schlechte Gedanken

Wer kennt sie nicht – Gedanken, die im Kopf kreisen, Gedanken, die man nicht denken mag – eine einfache Lösung aus wissenschaftlicher Sicht: in den Papierkorb damit. Der ORF schreibt: „Schlechte Gedanken in den Papierkorb!
Psychologen präsentieren ein vergleichsweise simples Rezept, um negative Gedanken aus dem Kopf zu verbannen: Man schreibe sie auf ein Blatt Papier - und werfe sie weg.“ Ganz ähnlich, wie manche Energetiker/innen vorgehen.

Werner Neuner schreibt zur Kraft der Gedankenfelder

Werner Neuner schreibt 2012: "Es ist auffallend, wie sehr die Verwirklichungskraft von Gedanken zugenommen hat. Und das gilt sowohl für die angstvollen Befürchtungen, als auch für die lebensbejahenden Impulse! ... Genauso, wie wir in unserem Gehirn angstvolle Inhalte aufbauen können, ist es uns möglich, diese ... durch mutige, kraftvolle und lebendige Bilder zu ersetzen. Die Wiederholungen von Inhalten bauen in unserem Gehirn tatsächlich biologische Masse auf, besonders dann, wenn diese Inhalte emotional und mit Bildern verknüpft sind. Und das ist die biologisch sichtbar gewordene Matrix unseres persönlichen Lebens!"

Weiters schreibt Werner Neuner, dass es nicht empfehlenswert ist, unsere Angstbilder durch "positive Affirmationen" einfach zu überlagern. Das ist ein unnötiger Kraftaufwand!

"Der Weg für eine Klärung des persönlichen Matrixfeldes gelingt uns viel einfacher dadurch, dass wir in die neutrale Beobachterrolle gehen. Es geht dabei darum, die Angstgedanken und Emotionen anzuschauen, ohne sie zu bejahen oder innerlich zu bestätigen.

Das ist eine einfache Methode, die ich das "Erste Bewusstsein" nenne und die uns an die heile Matrix, die in uns selbst angelegt ist, heranführt. Durch die neutrale Beobachtung werden die Kräfte der Heilen Matrix frei. Die freigewordenen Impulse aus unserer heilen Matrix erzeugen Heilungsfelder."

Ronald Beesley - Über die Kraft der Gedanken (auf Englisch)

Ronald Beesley war der wunderbare Lehrer von Peter Goldman und auch meiner Lehrerin (ab 1984) Johanna.

Ronald Beesley (1903-1979) was a healer, clairvoyant, philosopher, writer and teacher. He gained international fame with his “Distant Colour Healing”, and the books “Yoga of the Inward Path” and “Visions of the Aquarian Age”.
He founded “White Lodge”, now “Centre of New Directions“, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent in England.

LOVE
To understand the power of love we must first consider how the world was made. Today, we hear a great deal about research into atomic energy and the splitting of the atom. This was considered at one time to be a world-shaking event, but when scientists had succeeded in splitting the so-called atom they merely found that they had separated one set of atomic particles from another.
This was surprising, but they then went still further, to discover that the world of atoms was really the foundation of energy—solar energy, atmospheric energy, magnetic energy and the reactions of matter to heat and cold. The more research is carried on into the atomic world, the more information is coming to light on the energising of light, life and form as we see it. That a thing is small does not necessarily mean that it lacks power, and we find that these great forces of atomic energy which exist in and surround our atmosphere, and of which our own bodies are composed, obey definite laws of attraction; in fact it has been discovered that the atomic world is made up of minute replicas of the universe—solar systems, stars, suns and moons. The pattern from the heavens is merely produced and reproduced, on a smaller and smaller scale into the infinitude of invisibility.
Now that is a very wonderful discovery, because we find that we have one central pattern reproducing itself at every level; physicists find, too, that these atoms function in obedience to set laws which control their behaviour. They seem almost able to think. They have very strong emanations and are able to change their polarities; in fact atomic research has brought us nearer to the revelation of God's handiwork than, perhaps, any other modern discovery. A world invisible, yet so powerful that it influences all that is visible.
The power of the atom lies in attraction, that is, it is able to attract to itself other bodies which gyrate around its centre. What is the power of the centre ? What is this force that forms such a powerful matrix?
Now when we undertake research into other forms of life, animal, vegetable or mineral, we find a similar energy, transformed, perhaps, into different functions. This same adhesion of form follows every pattern of creation, so the solar system, the earth, the atmosphere surrounding the earth, and all things contained within the earth, are powered by this silent force. Its origin is unknown to the scientists. All they know is that it is there.
In view of the speed with which planets move through space it is surprising that none of them collide, yet there they are, rotating and moving around their parent sun, all sequence, all law and order, perfect balance and perfect harmony. What power is being used ? What manifestation is taking place ? This sun, this power, this seed seems to have been sent forth into matter at different rates of vibration and it attracts to itself visible substance and shapes that substance into a basic pattern. This is the mystery that the Ancients referred to in the saying, "A seed has gone forth and will manifest". All the myriad forms of life that we know, and many which we do not know, are manifestations of this great, invisible force.
The seed energy, which is the reproduction of substance which sets its own matrix of repetition, has one parent. That parent reproduces itself within its own field of activity and produces abundance.
It may be difficult to grasp that one source of power, reproducing a basic form of life, eventually populated the earth with its myriad forms of life, the various species of plants, animals, birds and fish, but the seed was sent forth empowered with energy—energy of its own reproduction.
It is this rate of reproduction, the great life mystery of perpetual energy and movement, which astonishes research workers, not only in the atomic and biological fields, but in all other sources of nature.
We must go a little further in this study and try to understand exactly what takes place in substance. It is thought that the earth was first a seed of great energy. It rotated in space gathering to itself cosmic dust floating in the void, and gradually covered its external fire with a solidity of form.
Why does not the earth explode ? Why do not things fly off it? How is it that we can poise a most delicately balanced instrument when it is travelling through space at something like 72,000 miles an hour? There must be some force steadying it, providing the stability, and there must be some attraction which is holding it together as a unit.
The same thing applies to our bodies. A seed has gone forth and will attract to itself the substance of its character, and that character, or the substance which is attracted towards it, will be decided entirely by the vibrational rate —or shall we say the: developed consciousness—of the seed.
A seed of this nature can take on many forms. It can break down one form and build another. It can change from one sequence of conditions to another. That is, it is capable of transforming itself continuously and eternally.
Here we can begin to see what is meant by the Law of Attraction, like unto like, or, to quote the familiar old country saying, "Birds of a feather flock together". There is a silent, invisible force which operates like a magnet and draws invisible substance into form. Now the form of these things is decided entirely by the heart or centre from which the energy is radiating. That again is invisible, but what we do see is the substance, the outer form that it has attracted towards itself, just as the earth attracted cosmic dust to form its mineral or outer layer.
What is the position of human beings in this great, mysterious framework of energy and movement. Why is it that every form and body is entirely different from every other ? How is it that some are better developed than others and seem to live healthier lives ? What power of attraction is taking place in that inner core or centre, that can attract a refined body or substance so that it can mould from exterior elements something shapely and comely, and also maintain a vast reservoir of energy? What force, what power has been used ? Should this force or power deteriorate in any way the power of its attraction will not be able to hold on to substance. It will leave that particular element and change over to another, so this life force or energy must have a constant sequence for it to maintain its life.
We have used the word "life", which is only another word for this silent force, this power. How is it that some people are drawn to certain types of disease conditions? At what rate is force vibrating for these conditions to occur ? We know that the vibrational force within that life decides what it will attract. Lower this frequency and it will attract lower forms of substance. Raise the frequency and it attracts a higher form of substance. Here we have intelligence working; substance is subject to an influence which either draws it together or dissipates it.
Does the frequency of that life force oscillate to such a degree that it is not able to hold its stability ? Obviously, the answer is "Yes". It is not able so to maintain its rate of vibration as to hold a stable condition of continuity.
It seems as if in the human field, in the field of density that we occupy, are many layers of influences, just as in the upper atmosphere the air becomes thinner while nearer the earth it becomes denser. There are different layers, different strata, and each layer or stratum occupies a certain condition of substance and attraction. Whatever stream any life occupies within those different strata, so will it gather the substance of that stratum to it.
Now let us go back a little and try to discover what is the operating force or power by which each individual is able to control the rate of its own vibration. Many who have not studied this problem would say that there is no control, that we are just victims of passing conditions. The more we study the activation of life around us the more clearly we see that that is not true.
There is a key. There is some method by which each life can decide for itself the quality and rate of its own attraction. It seems that some element of free-will is inherent in every form of life. In some it is crude and is linked only to the instinctive force. In others it is more developed and begins to enter into the reasoning state, and when all these things have been explained there is still a potent force, a silent power, which influences the rate or degree of attraction. For the want of a better word, we may say that these levels or sequences of energy have a "common denominator". Some would say with a certain amount of truth, it is dominated by the law of survival; others, it is influenced by mortal mind; the scientists would quote the law of attraction; the biologist, the degree of intelligence inherent in the seed or germ. All would be right, but there is still something missing.
One scientist, who was also a philosopher, came right out with his discoveries and said that the only formula he could establish in the behaviour of all these different forms of rotating life was a "Silent X", which we have referred to, and he said he had come to the conclusion that it was some form of love. Scientists talking of love! He said that that really did not explain it. The word was very inadequate, but it was the basis through which all life operated and was controlled.
He had merely discovered what had already been known for many centuries to the adherents of early faiths and religions: that this power called love is the deciding factor in every issue in every world and in every form of creation.
Have any of you ever seen an electro-magnet working ? The operators let down a large ball of iron and magnetise it, and immediately all the scrap metal clings to it. They haul it up, and if they are loading a ship they suspend it over the hold, cut the current, and the metal falls away from the iron ball into the hold. The process is repeated— the current is switched on to attract and switched off to repel. This is an example of electricity being applied to a controlled magnetised field.
Now try and see that the core of every life is a constant magnetised or sensitised field. Therefore, according to the rate of that energy, so will the rate of attraction or repulsion operate.
To make this more interesting let us apply this question of love to the relations of the human family. The opposite polarity to love is hate. That is, if we switch off the attraction current we set up repulsion. If we can attract we can repel, but hate itself has a certain amount of the power of love, because it is fashioned from the same substances. It only means that we have changed the polarity. Hate, then, will attract on a lower level, a denser substance will be attracted towards human form and so will lower the quality of its adhesion, lower the quality of its own body.
So we see that love is not merely a plaything for human emotions; it is the soul of the universe, and we cannot have any form of creation without it.
Now love itself can function on many of the levels shown on our chart. Being a basic force it will energise the basic patterns and can, when used in its lowest form, exaggerate them out of proportion to the needs of the human life. That is, once love, which is a highly atomic, energised power, touches anything, it intensifies, magnifies and exhilarates it. It is almost like the wand in the story of Cinderella—whatever it touches it transforms.
I used to be fascinated by the story of how the pumpkin turned into the coach. Somehow I never thought it was impossible These fairy tales are not impossible. They have an element of truth. There really is a magic, there is a force which can change one thing into another, and this force is in us, a part of our spiritual heritage.
We can begin to see that when The Christ performed works of healing, a high intensification of spiritual power centred in the seed of pure love, was able to touch any form of life and transform it. A withered arm became whole. Conditions of leprosy were transformed by this powerful force re-energising its own centre, altering its rate of attraction and adhesion, and raising the life above the stratum which was drawing to itself impurities of a lower density which showed itself in the running sores of leprosy.
Try to bear in mind the intensity of such power. Think of the magic wand, if you like. It touches something and that thing is transformed. The human mind has a power which is constantly changing matter; an individual can reform its character, the body can alter its rate of vibration. The degree of change is decided by the quality of its motive, or whether the power of love is being used wisely, or unwisely.
I never like to hear anyone use the word "hate", because I know by personal experience what harm even using the word can do. I know what forces can be released through using the negative influences surrounding, not only the health of a person, but also his atmosphere and environment, employment and human relationships. We have this power in us constantly. We can use it selfishly or unselfishly, or, if we are wise, we shall not use it at all. We shall just try to be what it represents.
Sick people often say, "Oh, I hate this body of mine. I am sick of it. I despise it. It is always giving me pain and trouble. It is always hurting me. It is always tired". Until we can change this attitude the body will gradually lower its form so that it becomes worse instead of better. Let us make haste to realise that we have a magic touch, magic fingers, magic thoughts—I am using the word "magic" in a simple, natural sense—and that when we do realise that we can touch some pattern of creation, and by the intensity and quality of that invisible force raise the status of that condition. Then we can begin to see where creation begins and dissolution ends. We can create our bodies ugly, our minds ugly and our surroundings ugly, because the same magic touch, the same power may be used to produce a lower form, or to produce a life pattern properly understood.
The same use of that touch, that power, produces the ideal conditions, the perfect body, the perfect state of mind, the perfect environment. It depends upon the stratum or level on which we create, for love is creation. It is creation. It is the element by which creation takes on form.

Now we must go a little further and understand that this force within us is a waiting force. That is, in many of us it is almost untouched. We have not really used it. We have used something which we call "love", but we have never really used the true essence of love. We think we have, but what we have used is a very poor representation of it, a very low order of it.
We think we love our families. We think we love life and many other things, but there has not been the pure intensity. There has not been the full use of the power of creation, nor complete co-operation with the intelligent love forces of the creative life.
You cannot heal or help anyone or anything without love. People are either better or worse for meeting us, because our love force or its opposite is emanating from us continuously, night and day. It never stops. Radium can be seen to be throwing off scintillating particles of living substance night and day; the human body and the human life is doing the same.
So it is that the mind life, as well as the instinctive life is using a love force to manifest with, and according to the degree of the power used so will the creation be either complete or incomplete, inferiorly made or beautifully made, the only difference being in the quality of the love force being used to manifest that creation.
Now do not think we have to labour. Love does not labour. It attracts, and when the frequency of the love energy rises, all the lower substance of matter falls away from it, because it has no attraction.
What is the energy which forms the attraction in the first place ? It is the desire life. Whatever we desire will happen, but only at the level on which we intensify that desire. Is it for self? Is it for our own comfort? Is it for somebody else's good? Who is to say it is for their good, anyhow? We may be desiring something very wonderful for somebody, but he may not be ready for it.
So the desire force forms the framework of the attraction for substance. Our bodies are representative, our minds are representative of the quality of our life, and when we look at them in the glass we need not be particularly proud of them.
Well, this present life is for us to experiment with. It is not the beginning and the end of all things. It is the fringe of all creation, and the power manifesting through each individual is very much as in a kindergarten school. It is given that we may experiment and make mistakes, and eventually from these errors learn to use wisely what we are given. That applies to us. As St. Paul says that he has grown and "put away childish things", so should we have put away childish likes and dislikes, hates and all the subjective things which go to complicate life, because the invisible touch of this magic love force will transform whatever we think about, and we shall create it by merely thinking. We shall energise it by merely conceiving it.
Someone may say, "I did not conceive this particular life. Why have I this load of trouble and disappointments ?" But we have conceived it somewhere. The law cannot be wrong. We cannot have one law for one person and change that law for another. Law is absolute. It is constant. Therefore, love is the key which operates all the laws. Every law in the universe is operated by the law of love according to the degree of purity or impurity. It is very hard for the human mind to conceive this, because we have become so accustomed to the idea that we personally are the result of something else and not the result of ourselves. People blame parents, blame environment, blame conditions, in fact they go about blaming everything, without stopping to consider that they themselves are the final deciding factor, not environment, parents or conditions.
We can either intensify, that is, increase and improve, or we can degrade and lessen, by the same power. This magic touch can transform our lives when we begin to realise its potency, its effectiveness, its divinity, and we ask whence it has come. It is a part of the seed of creation transplanted from God into ourselves.
Now love must be completely free from desire or it cannot work. It can only work in a negative way if it is linked to desire. Desire is not intelligence. Desire does not reason. Desire is merely a sense. The mind, too, is not very good, because that builds up a desire life. It desires money, power, position and is full of covetousness, jealousy, envy, greed. Those things are in the mind life.
If we wish to create wisely we must eliminate all self desire. This means that the student on the path knows of these powers but never uses them for self. You do not need to use them. They will use themselves. The very fact that you are reading this, will cause the quality and essence of your love to radiate in the atmosphere. Even the temperature of a room can be lowered by hate or raised by love.
Another concrete example: if you are playing on a sensitive instrument, whatever harmony or discord is played upon that instrument will vibrate in the atmosphere and those vibrations can affect everyone within its influence, far beyond audible range.
Here we can see how necessary meditation is to eliminate the coarser qualities of human nature, because in eliminating them we are increasing the abundance of our love life. Realise that every sickness, illness, unhappiness and negative condition is, in some way, self-created by the use, wrongly or unwisely, selfishly or mistakenly, of the love force power with which we are endowed. If you think you are old, you will become old. If you think you are beaten, you are beaten. If you are despondent and have no friends, then you are despondent and lonely. If you feel that you have no future and the world is against you, it is against you—it is as simple as that—but if you begin slowly to regenerate the different life energies with spirituality and love, all that will change. It can change over night. We can call it re-birth. That is, a person is reborn into a higher state of radiating consciousness, and all the lower substance, which is disease and unhappiness, falls away because it is not being energised by a negative form of creation.
Now remember this magic touch. Whatever you think of, whatever you touch, you are transforming it, and if you wish to transform it into abundance think that this magic power is real. It is as real as the chair you are sitting on. Once you have discovered this, you have discovered the greatest secret of happiness that life can give you. You can eliminate the idea of death, because there is no death if love be present. When love has been neglected refill the spiritual vacuum with love-radiance, and the whole being becomes recharged with life. It is as easy as that.
By this you can understand the "miracles" and the acts of manifestation shown in the Christ Life. The Christ Spirit demonstrated the power of pure, unadulterated, selfless love and He said, candidly, what I do you can do also, meaning, provided you use the Law of Love to do it, not desire. That is the difficult thing, to separate the desire, the will, from the state of the Love Being.
Now I want you, when you have learned to meditate, to dwell, if you can, on this beautiful, invisible, creative power. Every touch, every word, every sound, every thought, every wish, is magnetised, intensified and energised by the transmission of your love rate, and on that will be decided—on that alone—the condition of your life, not only here, but also in the hereafter.

LIFE'S POETRY

CONSCIOUSNESS is the purpose of life in all its variations, its themes, ideas, inventions, its exciting capacity to dream up new shapes and designs, to think out systems in mechanics, mathematics or different ways of doing things. Consciousness is the dream of God come true, intricate creative, never ending. Watch a flower growing, its adaption to climate, environment, its colour, its perfume, its very cleverness, and try to imagine who thought it out. It was no accident, I assure you. A mind somewhere in the Cosmos conceived its being, it enjoyed the pleasure in the mind of God, a sharing of creation in thought. Study the being of a tree—a green fountain of power pouring up to the skies, the shade, the shelter, the beauty, its flowers and fruit, and finally, itself—whole centuries of living, giving out that you may enjoy the loveliness of its growing peace and serenity: the myriad of leaves that have shared its sanctuary, lived in safety and fed from its bounty, come to birth and died in the leafy dome of a thought creation direct from the Mind of God. To a Cosmic soul was bequeathed the glory of designing a tree—observe the life systems, their support structures, the moss, the stones, the intricate way of surviving; their cycles, their rhythms, these are all areas of consciousness in action, each reproducing its kind— a blessing of procreation. Their sheer persistency to live, the joy of their play, the harmony of companionship, every minute detail, the thought design of consciousness. This precious commodity so easy to waste, even to deny its existence, or use it at sub-levels, when it contains the breath of the Gods, beaming out to order the substance of matter; so many wavelengths, so many dimensions, each more beautiful as it sows loveliness into the higher spheres of Grace, its very continuity assured in the spirit of eternity.
We are the threshold of our own dimension, we also have the gift of Grace to create, for no thing is made alike, each has the stamp of its origination, each bears the mark of the thought-wave that conceived its doing. Consciousness is creation—the fact of our existence ensures the Will of God in us—to what do we bend ourselves ?
What are our designs for the act of being; whether we care or not creation sets in motion the waves of matter. These respond like the stone in the pond, their waves lap on the shore of our time. We cannot cease to create for the vibrations of our own thoughts send ripples into the air which reach the ether of other stars, for life is communication—communication is life, consciousness is in the flow with all that is, seen and unseen.
It influences us, it influences others, for thought is the structure of things tocome, designs for the future, good or bad according to the mind thought of its participation. What is set in action by the wavelength of thought must return to the sender multiplied. These then, are blessings or otherwise that link us to thought destiny. These are the tools we forge to manipulate our lives. Can we forge new tools, that the engineering of our action is different? We can—we do, that is life, that is consciousness working and none can opt out.
The heart of all these conditious is eventually with the self. Life after life we wear out our primitive tools. Each new adventure into another planetary consciousness giving us the joy of creating anew. This is the wonder of eternity, the workshop of God in us. Each life is a substance of experience, to be better craftsmen, works of art within the self. Michaelangelo cried in despair that his perfect creation would escape him, yet in the moment of his greatest defeat, he produced the masterpieces that have made his works immortal.
We are all sculptors in some form or another; we build, we destroy, yet the masterpiece is slowly becoming. It takes much experience and many lost causes to learn the laws of creative behaviour. There are no failures, for these become the teaching to higher ways. They are the touchstone to strengthen our resolve; to acquire the patience, the courage, for all lives are not of the flesh, they are spiritual affairs growing with the density of the lesser consciousness to achieve the fulfillment of greater things.
To live, to be, is consciousness suffering the discipline of the will, the mind, the purpose of God. To suffer gladly is to enjoy more fully the success or failure, the fun of living with God within ourselves.

Macht der Gedanken

Hier möchte ich aus einem Buch zitieren, es ist online auf Deutsch abrufbar.

„Peace Pilgrim – Eine Pilgerin der Liebe“, Übersetzung aus dem Amerikanischen: Heidi Sörgel und Dr. Ulrich Lauther, © Aquamarin Verlag

Da wir durch Gedanken gestalten, müssen wir uns sehr energisch auf positive Gedanken konzentrieren. Wenn man glaubt, daß man etwas nicht kann, dann kann man es auch wirklich nicht. Aber wenn man glaubt, daß man es kann, dann wird man überrascht feststellen, daß man es tatsächlich kann. Es ist wichtig, daß wir unsere Gedanken ständig auf das bestmöglich Erreichbare in einer Situation lenken – auf das, was wir am liebsten eintreten sähen.

Ich habe einige „New Age“-Leute getroffen, die von der Prophezeiung einer Katastrophe gehört hatten und sich auch darauf konzentrierten. Wie schrecklich! Wir gestalten jeden Augenblick unseres Lebens durch unsere Gedanken, und wir sind auch an der Gestaltung unserer Umwelt beteiligt. Wenn du irgendeine Prophezeiung von einer Katastrophe hörst, so gibt es dafür einen Grund: Es geschieht, damit du dein ganzes Gewicht positiver Gedanken auf die andere Waagschale wirfst. Als es z.B. Dutzende von Vorhersagen gab, daß halb Kalifornien durch ein fürchterliches Erdbeben in das Meer abrutschen sollte, richtete ich es bewußt so ein, daß ich mich zu der Zeit in diesem Teil von Kalifornien aufhielt. Da war nicht einmal ein Zittern. Aber ich verpaßte einige meiner Freunde, die an die Ostküste gefahren waren –für alle Fälle.

Erinnerst du dich an die Stelle, wo es heißt, es wird Prophezeiungen geben, und sie werden nicht eintreten? Warum ist das so?Weil jede Prophezeiung nur eine Tendenz angibt. Man kann nie den Ausgang der Dinge vorhersagen, weil wir diese Vorhersage jederzeit in eine andere Richtung lenken können, in eine positive Richtung, wenn wir uns gemeinsam darum bemühen.

Jede gute Tat, jedes gute Wort, jeder gute Gedanke, schwingt immer weiter, ohne Ende. Das Böse bleibt nur bis es vom Guten überwunden wird, aber das Gute bleibt ewig.

Über Peace Pilgrim

Von 1953 bis 1981 war diese silberhaarige Frau, die mit Freuden ihrem Ruf folgte, eine Dienerin in dieser Welt. Während sie sich den Dörfern oder großen Städten näherte, brachte sie allen, die sie traf, eine Friedensbotschaft, die ganz einfach lautete: Wenn genug von uns inneren Frieden finden, dann werden unsere Institutionen friedlicher werden, und es wird keine Gelegenheit mehr zu einem Krieg geben.
