I absolutely agree with his little challenge, if we can call it that way.
My answer to his 3 questions would be – I am going towards it. I am almost there.
Love you all.

What a simple and clear way to asses our spiritual connection. For years my answer would have been no to all three. Now my answer is yes, yes, and yes! Many of my family and friend do not understand the peace and joy that I have in my life now. My income is less than $700 per month and though there are things that I would like to have, mostly books that I cannot afford, my needs are met and I am living a happy and fulfilled life. The Creator always has a way to meet my needs in the material world, and I am satisfied that as my spiritual life is blossoming, I will find a way to earn money in spite of my physical disabilities.

The answer is NO, I’m not tuned into the great cosmic computer. Now the question that must be answered is “how do I tune in?” without meditating, something very difficult for an overactive mind to do.

I feel I have always been “tuned in.” I was adopted but basically raised myself. I could never take religion seriously and now I know why.
My only problem is my husband of 33 1/2 years is the extreme opposite of me!! What a challenge in communication!!! He wants to be content and know all is well but he comes from a family of worriers.
He has looked into Buddhism but doesn’t spend the time to “get into it.” It could teach him to meditate and look inside himself to see the beautiful person he is.
I’ve read several books put out by Seth and Jane Roberts and felt they put into words what I was believing. I’m also reading Conversations with God books… on Home with God now… and can see the same teachings Seth and Jane were giving.
Like it says in “Home with God,” we ARE in heaven!!!!

In response to Cleo’s question of how to become “connected” without meditating, which she finds difficult, I’d like to share my experience with yoga.
My mind was also too overactive to meditate. And we all know that an overactive mind is a direct result of too much stress and too many unresolved past issues. These create constant mental-chatter and eventually anxiety, which will eventually manifest itself with physical symptoms. All of this negative “stuff” is really energy, which becomes trapped in our systems. (In addition to the overactive mind, I suffered from clinical depression, though I had almost completely recuperated from 5 years of being agoraphobic.)
Then I started doing yoga: one Ashtanga class and 2 gentle yoga classes each week. There is just something about putting your body into those yoga postures that forces the old, trapped emotional/psychic/spiritual energy OUT of your body (and out of your “soul” I believe). The natural consequence of this is that your mind slows down to the point of meditation becoming so effortless you won’t have to “work” at meditating. “Peace” just starts happening to you. Additionally, yoga cured my depression and the physical symptoms it created. Others in my yoga classes have experienced similar results.
I started to experience a shift after just 4 weeks. Humans are like onions, and shed “stuff” in layers. And it’s been a little up and down, as I have had to deal with the “stuff” that was being cast out of my system. I have continued to “shed” negative energies progressively as I have continued in my practice for 6 months now. I still have some mental-chatter I’d like to be rid of, but I am in a totally different place mentally, emotionally and physically than I was 6 months ago. And I credit this to doing yoga. I didn’t do a single other thing and finally after years of ineffective therapy I’m healed, happy and at spiritual peace. Maybe I was just “ready” for the benefits of yoga. Maybe you are too. Best wishes to you. Suzykat

Hello to All.
We are here in this planet for a very short time. we are all guests here. we must realize our true identity before we leave from this physical body. For six years i couldnot think about anything else, but this thing we call God. But one day after a long silence i finally got it. The moment you know who you are then you fine your relationships with God. I realized that that i am inside of this body which is nothing but emptiness. and this emptiness is outside us as well. Where everything is located in it. This is our real Identity. And the only thing that breaks this emptiness outside and inside is this physical body. Then you realize that everything that is located what you called outside is really inside of you. you will respect everything and everybody, the grass is growing within you, it is using your energy to grow, the sun. moon everything is working because of you. then you dont look for a God outside of yourself, because the outside does not exixt anymore. all is you. if you look to a person, you are looking to yourself in another form. But it is still you.
i hope All humanity will one day realize that this God is nothing but themseves. Then you will have control over everything in this universe.
Hope this day will come.
Love All of you.
Your humble brother which is yourself from Norway.
