Entering the realm of Spirit

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Psalms 106 recalls the story of when Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt. They crossed the Red Sea and passed over into the land of Sinai. From here the children were to move into the Promised Land and take it over. To live in this new realm required destruction of what was already there. The children dawdled and took 40 years to do so.

If we view this mentally, it’s similar to moving our consciousness into a new realm and destroying anything unlike God.

The world is full of beliefs. Tomorrow will come with more beliefs, however, we have the might of God to help us live in the world and yet destroy false expectations, convictions, and inventions. The purpose of life is to have and serve one God, Love.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “The realm of the real is Spirit.”

Mexican-Shaman-e1347234920515In Ecclesiastes 9, we can read about a God of mercy who bestows wisdom on us all.

Moving into the realm of Spirit is quite a challenge to us human beings on earth, however, God helps us. The destruction of human beliefs doesn’t have to be destructive but can be constructive.

I can rid myself of the belief that tomorrows tragedy will occur every day after. I can expect God to take the reins and smooth out the surprises that come my way.

The power of Spirit leads us all in a way we understand to overcome the beliefs that obstruct us from entering the consciousness of Love. The realm of Spirit is ours to enter and enjoy.

Are we thinking?
The activity of thinking comes in many disguises. Thinking can be quiet, loud, scary, peaceful, progressive, or a completely thoughtless exercise. Some thinking isn’t thinking at all. Examples of thoughtless thinking: A mental rehearsal of the day’s activities. A repetition of the

Human minds aren't judging us as much as we think
It’s important to feel good about our self. When we don’t feel good about our self, our level of self-consciousness is so weighty it takes all the fun out of life. The enormous scope of what it takes for a person to feel good about themselves is mind-boggling. I’ve met people who feel go
