The Hidden Message in the Mechanical Pumpkin

posted by Guy Finley

Once during the Halloween season a friend and I decided to go to a restaurant for a meal. As we entered the small diner, we were startled by a wall-mounted mechanical pumpkin that jumped out at us while making spooky noises. It didn’t take long to discover that the pumpkin had an electric eye that caused it to automatically lunge from its hiding place whenever anyone came within a certain range. Once we knew its secret, what had been a scary moment for the two of us became a funny one. We laughed at ourselves, and, of course, everyone else who got scared by the “frightening phantom” that was no more than a mechanical toy.

It’s the same with our minds. A thought comes by and somehow sets off the mechanical responder within us. Until we understand that both the scary thought and the scared self it creates are just figments passing through our psychic system, we have no control over the initial scary situation, or the false self it creates to rescue us. But once we understand all this, we have a choice. When we realize that the “threat” never had any real power to hurt us, we are no longer compelled to produce an unconscious, automatic response of fear or anger.

(Video) I am the Vine and Ye are the Branches
Guy Finley explains that it's a dangerous path to say we are one with God, because we go into imagination that we are divine.  "I am the vine, ye are the branches." The branch exists because of the vine.  We are one with the Divine in as much that we are an expression of the Divine. [youtube]ht

No Greater Gift
It is given to us to choose in which of the infinite worlds we will dwell, and there is no greater gift, nor power, granted to any creature under the sun. To not know one's choice, or worse, to have abdicated this right, is to turn your life over to forces that oppose the possibility of rebirth.
