As we head steadfast to the year 2012, the age of aquarius or age of awareness, I notice the blend of science and spirituality becoming more apparent in mainstream society. Media outlets geared towards the average Joe now host an increasing number of movies, books, TV shows and the like around the subject of the unseen power of the human thinking potential.
How much power do our thoughts really have? If one would agree that we are energy beings housed in physical, flesh bodies then one might also agree that each individual energy being is connected to a much larger universal energy that thinks (has intelligence). These deeply held thoughts become beliefs which in turn spurs creation. If this is true then our thoughts are as powerful as we believe them to be. In this light, our beliefs may very well be the most valuable thing that we own.
All of the great masters and ancient teachers through the ages have illustrated this fact using various forms of language, prayers, mantras, sacred books, initiations, miracles, symbolism, parables, formal and informal schools, etc. All in an effort to help guide us to use our internal energy center of feelings and emotions that likewise interact with our beliefs, thereby creating and expanding life.
If you would like to focus your energy on feeling joyous and peaceful which in turn creates joy and peace then here are 4 Schools of Thought for you to consider:
The Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) - is dedicated to helping people experience the fullness of who they are as spiritual beings. MSIA was founded by John-Roger in 1968. MSIA provides a variety of tools and techniques that allow you to experience your soul. As your awareness expands a greater sense of peace, abundance and love emerges. You will find more information at their website msia.org.
The Option Institute - is a not-for-profit educational organization founded in 1983 by Barry and Samahria Kaufman. The Option Institute trains individuals to deal more effectively with day-to-day challenges and aid you to scale the heights if your personal summit. The Option Institute believes in experiential training versus conventional lectures and seminars, in an effort to make the student an active learner and participant rather than just an observer. Their website is option.org.
The Great School of Natural Science (GSNS) - it's aim is to teach the student to live a life here on earth, in such a manner as to achieve more proficiency in all that he does; to solve his daily problems with greater wisdom and facility; and thus to gain more joy, pleasure and contentment. GSNS was founded by John E. Richardson and Florence Huntley in 1897. Through instruction and personal experience one discovers that as an individual intelligence, she has the independent power to conform her life to the Constructive or the Destructive Principle and Process of Nature, whichever she elects. More information can be found at gsns.org.
The Avatar Course - the mission of Avatar in the world is to catalyze the integration of belief systems. When we perceive that the only difference between us is our beliefs and that beliefs can be created of discreated with ease, the right and wrong game will wind down, a co-create game will unfold, and world peace will ensue. The Avatar Course was created by Harry Palmer in 1987. All course information can be found at AvatarEPC.com. The Avatar Course opens a window to the inner workings of your own consciousness.
None of these schools of thought subscribe to any particular religious group or church, therefore all with an open mind are welcomed. In closing I will leave you with these 3 questions to ponder.
Are we what we think?
Are the beliefs you hold helpful or harmful?
What do you REALLY believe?
