When The Roof Falls In!

Have you ever experienced a time in your life that felt like the roof fell in?  Did everything seem to change for the worse almost overnight?

We are great believers in luck or fortune; we hear it every day.  “I had a run of bad luck, I experienced a reversal of fortune, I just can’t catch a break”.  Is  my destiny out there somewhere beyond my control?  Does the Goddess Fortuna really spin her wheel; are you a helpless pawn of Fortune?

No, my friends.  That is the song of the lost and helpless and it brings nothing but sorrow, decay and waste.  Yes, life does seem to take turns for the worse one day and then look rosy the next.  Why?

Life is merely a mirror of our Mind.  What we think, speak and decide to do each day is the cause of our life experience.  As our thinking, our moods, our impulses and our actions ebb and flow from day to day they are planting the seeds of our future in the soil of our subconscious or subjective minds.   Our conscious thought programs the subconscious mind. Thus our reality is created.

When the roof falls in on your life you can always trace the cause to something that you did or neglected to do, perhaps years before, that has brought this about.  Everything that you think, speak and choose is cause.  Cause always produces effects, for good or ill.

The great secret to life is to learn to manage cause.  When you learn to do this you will automatically manage the effects or events of your life.  Always work on the level of cause and effect takes care of itself.

A simple example is hitting a baseball in the back yard with your son or daughter.  You notice that you are facing a large picture window 30 yards away but you hit the ball anyway.   Well, you hit a home run!  Problem is, the home run shattered the large picture window which will cost several hundred dollars to repair.  You caused this to happen, it was not Fortune, luck or fate.  You saw the window and decided to say, oh what the heck, and hit the ball anyway.  The cause was hitting the ball where you knew you could break a window and the effect was the broken window.

So it is with everything in your life.  To get off of this wheel, trace your problem or difficulty back to its genesis and then change the cause.  Think a new thought, speak a new word and get a new result.

In 2004 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which came as quite a shock and a surprise because I felt just great.  Thank God I had to take an insurance blood test which caught the problem in time.  But why prostate cancer?  What is cancer? It is not an infection or a contagious disease.  It is simply the body turning on itself and beginning to eat itself alive.  Scary isn’t it?

Medical science is beginning to understand what we in Religious Science have known for many years.  Where you are holding chronic anger, sorrow, fear, feelings of inferiority, that part of the body will be the one attacked by cancer.

Prostate for a man is the site of sexuality, procreation, elimination and intimate relationships.  For a woman it might be breasts or the cervical area.  I have been a serial monogamist in that I have been married more times than I care to share here today.  This caused me great pain, financial lack and feelings of inferiority  because I did not sustain a lifelong marriage as I was taught to do.  This sorrow, sadness and sense of loss was the cause of this cancer.

I am celebrating my 17th anniversary with my dear wife, Susan and earnestly pray that her sparkling blue eyes are the last thing I see on this Earth.  I apparently have learned a great lesson that will profit my soul in future experiences. Thus the cancer has never returned.  Yes, I was physically healed by a team of magnificent physicians whose hands and skill were the hands of God, but without my healing of my lifelong relationship issues, the cancer would have soon returned.

You and I are the ultimate creators and healers in our lives; using the power that the Creator has given.  We all have that power; every single person on this planet can do what I have done and billions before me have done.  It is your birthright but so few understand it or use it.

They look outside for the answers but they have been within you and I all of our lives.  This innate power is the Kingdom of Heaven.  As the Master said: “Look not up there or over there but look within”.

When the roof falls in in your world, go within!  There lies the answer and the cure.  From the effect, the wreckage, the rubble; trace back like pulling yarn on a sweater…. back, back, back until you see the cause.  Remove that cause and rebuild the roof of your life…. it is simple but not easy.  Get going right now!

God’s Update System according to Rev. Dore’

Even though we are only 3 months from 2016 as I write this, there is still a hot debate over evolution.  There are many millions, if not billions, who simply reject the entire idea that species evolve as conditions change and designs prove their efficacy or are rejected by natural selection. I know its true! I can see evolution’s work every day in my back yard!

When I look out my back windows or sit out on my Lanai overlooking our lovely pond surrounded with Maple trees (yes we do have maple trees) I can see our Florida Squirrels scampering up and down the trees doing what squirrels do everywhere.  Where Northern or Western Squirrels have big, magnificent bushy tails, their Florida cousins have skinny little tails that have more in common with a rat than the squirrels I knew in California.

Heat and humidity and bushy tails just don’t work in Florida so our squirrels have evolved with just the remnant of the usual tail.  Our crows don’t call the way every other crow calls.  Our birds have long legs for wading in water. Everything adapts to a new environment or dies.

Why the argument?  Well the Creationists believe that if evolution is fact, then God is negated.  Why?  Could not God, who creates all things, have created the system of evolution? What if evolution is God’s update system, rather like our periodic updates to our computers and tablets? Science and God are not antithetical but are rather complementary.

Let’s agree on one thing: if indeed there is a God, He or She is not stupid.  God certainly did not create the world as it is portrayed in the ancient Sumerian myth that we call Genesis.  But that does not mean that God does not exist.

I absolutely know that there is a First Cause, a Divine Mind, a Creator of all that exists because the Universe is just too well engineered and planned to be random.  DNA is one of the greatest engineering feats of all time.

Could we do that?  We can manipulate DNA but we can not design it. We, with all our science and all our technology, cannot even get to Mars much less the stars.  This will undoubtedly change as it becomes a priority and moves to the top to the human “to do” list.

We can manipulate that which is already created by the Creator but we do not and can not create.  God will still have a job and a place in our hearts as long as there are things to create and people to use them, enjoy them and cherish them.

Yes, Evolution is a fact and so is God.  God is the author of Evolution, it is Her update and regeneration system. Without it the Earth would by this time be a barren ball of dust, devoid of life.  Life, evolution and the Universe are not zero-sum games.

Think well, speak well and do well.  This is really the secret of life

It’s all in your Mind!

click on the audio link above (speakers on!)

Picture a psychiatrist’s couch with you reclining upon it while you attempt to describe your problems and emotional issues to your therapist.  After you finish the “50 minute hour” with the Doctor he looks at you and tells you that all your problems are really all in your mind.  He or She is absolutely right.  $225 later you may feel a bit better for having shared your feelings but the solution still lies with you.

It’s all in your mind!  Of course it is.  Your entire life is in your mind.  Your whole existence is in your mind.  Your body is just the mobile device to transport the mind.  You are your mind!   This is obvious to some but many more of us really believe that the body is who and what we are.  Even more of us confuse the brain with the mind. They most certainly are not the same.

The brain is an organ of the body, an electro-chemical organic processor and bodily interface for the mind.  So where is the mind?  Science currently is operating on the theory that it exists in every cell of our body.  In other words, the mind is the sum of our parts.  Metaphysics and theology tend to see the mind  like an aura or magnetic field around the body.  This is what cerulean photography captures when auras are photographed. 

If you haven’t seen your aura yet, or don’t even know that you have one, get it photographed when the opportunity presents itself.  You will be amazed at what you can learn about yourself by understanding the energy that you project through the electro-magnetic  field that we call an aura.  Every human projects this energy every second of their lives.  This is the shadow of the human mind.

The Mind to me is the Divine Spark, the Divinity within each human.  It is that part that knows that it knows.  It is the self aware part of the human experience. It is the imagination which is unique to humanity; the part of us that has been called the proof of God’s existence.  It is what allows you and I to be able to escape the bonds of environment, the shackles of precedent, custom or the “way it has always been”.  If we can see it in our mind’s eye, we can create it in form. All thanks to our imagination; perhaps our greatest gift from the Creator.

Imagination is that part of us that can take a mental trip to stars and galaxies never before seen by humankind.  It is that part of the builder that sees the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge long before the first hammer rang or the first girder was welded in place.  It is that part of us that sees a world where character, not appearance, is the sole measure of a human.  Imagination is the part of us that sees every child safe, loved,  going to school, not one hungry and all humanity safe and happy.

Without the fears, ideas, dreams, plans that are “all in our mind” nothing ever comes into form in the “real world” of stuff and things.  Not one thing was ever created in the Cosmos or on Earth without first appearing in some sentient being’s mind.  In truth, all human life takes place in the mind, aided by the organic computer that we call the brain.

Your therapist was right, it is all in your mind but that does not mean that it isn’t real.  There is nothing more real that what is in your mind.  Your thoughts and emotions are the building blocks of your life!  In truth you are your Mind.   When we in Religious Science say that your mind is the Mind of God, your love is the Love of God, your life is the Life of God; this is what we mean:  We are all expressions of God, part and parcel of the great Divine Mind, the Universal Intelligence, the Great I Am which we call God. God and each of us are truly one.

If you can conceive it, believe it and see it already done, you can experience it.

Until we are together again…walk in Light and Love each and every day.
