Science has now shown us what the ancients have known: We live, move, and have our being in the Field of Energy that permeates all creation. We impress this Field with our thoughts and feelings, which create our own vibration. We bring back to ourselves that same vibration in the form of experience. Simply put, if we change our vibration, we change our lives.
In the book Spiritual Science, based on the work of Emma Curtis Hopkins and edited by Ruth Miller, we are informed about “looking for the fixed Good” in everything. Students who study spiritual science are sometimes confused by this statement. For instance, they think it infers that we should look at a tragic accident or event, and just feel it is “all good,” or we should look for the silver lining in everything. This is not what looking for the “fixed Good” means.
Here is an explanation that works for me. Looking for the fixed Good means that beyond the experience, beyond the world of form where everything is occurring is a Good, the Energy that has never been touched by that experience. It is the Quantum Field which is constantly taking the world of our thoughts and feelings and making them so. If we can, in every instance, keep our mind focused on the fixed Good. energy has to transform. The more we can do this, the more we affect not just our world, but the world.
“As the work of psychiatrist David Hawkins demonstrates, people who are operating at a state of consciousness focused on love and unity affect millions of others simply by being aware.” (from “The Spiritual Science of Emma Curtis Hopkins” edited by Ruth Miller)
Let me give an example from my own life without going into details. I am experiencing a personal experience that could promote me to focus on the negative in some of the people involved. If I do that, according this principle, I will promote the negative in my experience and the experience of the whole. Yes, I do affect the whole. So, my job as a spiritual being is to focus on the “fixed Good” in everyone, to focus on their true essence, not what they are displaying.
This makes total sense to me, and I have already proven that it works in other situations in my life. I am grateful to be able to work on this Principle. What’s the alternative? Living a life of complaining and negativity doesn’t help me or anyone else.
Ernest Holmes once wrote, “One alone in Consciousness with the Infinite constitutes a complete majority.” I invite us all to trust ourselves and our influence on the world. Let us just try it. Remember it doesn’t mean condoning bad behavior, being a doormat, or not taking action in the world of form; it simply means remembering that beyond bad behavior, Love is the true essence of everything and staying fixed in consciousness on that will eventually bring it forward.
Love and Aloha,
