We Are Bigger on the Inside

We Are Bigger on the Inside

Inner space is so much more interesting because outer space is so empty.  Theodore Sturgeon

Science shows us that our bodies are actually more space than anything else. Dive deeply into the center of our own atoms and all we find is empty space, proportionately vaster than that between the planets of our solar system. What is at the Center of all that space?

The ancient mystics taught the practice of the Presence of the ONE in everything. The early Christian theologians knew that “God is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.”

This becomes the intuitive realization of the Omnipresence of the Infinite Reality, right where we are. When you take that centering breath and go within to the sanctuary at the core of your being—there you find infinity—there you find the Presence of the Infinite ONE. We are bigger on the inside than we are on the outside.

Spiritual Contemplation: Practice taking that centering breath that takes you deep into the heart of your core. Be still. From your center, stretch your inner awareness out as far as you can in every direction. Notice that there are no edges or barriers that cause you to stop. You can go now into Infinity. What do you discover there?

Affirmation: I breathe into my Center, and there I find the vast Infinite Reality of the ONE.

How Big Is Your God?

How Big Is Your God?

The Power that holds a grain of sand in place is the same Power that holds the planets in their places. There is nothing big or little or hard or easy as far as the Power is concerned. It is the same Power working in and upon everything. This is the Power we use.  Ernest Holmes

All spiritual faiths and traditions agree that for our idea of God to come even close to the reality of the Infinite Presence, we must see It as omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. This means the form from which everything is created is infinite in power and intelligence. It is big enough to hold and manage the creation of a vast and seemingly infinite Universe. It has the intelligence and wisdom to know how to design cells that divide and multiply to become a baby’s fingernails and eyelashes. It is present in the smallest quark and photon while showing Its majesty in the beauty of the mountains.

Spirit, the infinite ONE, doesn’t differentiate between big and little. It shows up in the smallest to largest of all things. Nothing is too big for Spirit to create. This is the same creative power that moves through you. Nothing is too big for Life so you can focus on a molehill of Abundance, or on a mountain of Abundance. God doesn’t know anything about big or little. The Universe has the wisdom, power, and presence to become anything through you.

Spiritual Contemplation: How big is your God? Is it big enough to handle everything in your life?

Affirmation: Spirit doesn’t know big or little, mountain or molehill. I trust in the bigness of my God!

Infinite Abundance

Infinite Abundance

The universe is abundant, unlimited in every respect; if it were not unlimited it would have depleted itself long, long ago. . . . Instead, what do we find? The fish in the ocean lay so many eggs that if they all hatched, the waters would overflow all the lowlands. The stars in the heavens are beyond counting. The grains of sand on the beaches are innumerable. The leaves on the trees continue to multiply. Nature is lavish, abundant, extravagant.     Ernest Holmes

Have you ever tried to count the number of leaves on a tree? Now multiply that by all the trees in your neighborhood—in your state—in the entire U.S. and all across the globe. Now look into the heavens at night and try to count the stars that you can see. Beyond those are billions more in the Milky Way, and beyond that, trillions of galaxies, each with billions of stars.

How many grains of sand are on a beach? How many on all the beaches in the world? How many drops of water in a pond? Now imagine all the drops in the ocean. Everywhere you look, you can SEE the abundance of our Universe. Trust that what you see is a reflection of a powerful Spiritual Truth. The Universe is Infinite Abundance.

Spiritual Contemplation: How do you best see abundance in the Universe? Are you looking for it?

Affirmation: I live in an Infinitely Abundant Universe. I see the Abundance of Life and Spirit.

Ink It—Don’t Just Think It

January It is named after the Roman god of doors and gates, beginnings and endings—Janus. , He is depicted with a double-faced head, each face looking in opposite directions, and is remembered at the beginning of important events in a person’s life such as marriage or a birth.
