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.

Hanging out with Christ
It’s a tough call. If I found myself sitting in a boat, in rough water, and then I saw Christ Jesus walking by on the water, I don’t know if I’d risk walking on the water to be with Christ. Would I sit in the boat? The safety of the boat is already precarious, bobbing and thrashing in st

Simultaneous contrast
Have you ever looked at paint samples? Those dinky squares of colors in paint stores? You decide on teal green and take a gallon home to paint a room. Once on the wall, you want to gag. Returning to the store and paint samples, you select another color with caution. Deciding on emerald green,
