I recently sat in a circle with several souls expressing their gratitude and the miracles that had occurred in their lives. There was a lot of joy exuding from each, and yet challenges too. However, they seemed to see through the darkness to the light of their lives. Suddenly, a Knowing with a capital K came through me. This was eternity. We were alive and we would always be alive. Immortality was truly a state of consciousness. I was experiencing eternity.
In that moment, there was no time or space. The idea that Heaven or hell was within us came through with clarity. I can call this a moment of illumination. It was clear and I just knew that I Knew. Then, of course, I wanted to hang on to it. I wanted to try to explain it to everyone, but the words escaped me. It was a feeling and it could only be felt.
How does this affect me now? I just keep asking questions of myself. What of eternity? I believe that as I linger in the question, I will hear more and more of the answer. Is life then, just a series of questions that we seek to answer? They called Dr. Ernest Holmes, Philosopher, Mystic and Found of Science of Mind, the eternal question mark? From a young age, he asked questions about everything. Eventually, he came forward with the Science of Mind and Spirit Philosophy, which took the love from every answer he received from every philosopher and mystic through time.
I love sitting in the question and allowing the answer to come in mysterious ways and through synchronicities. Every answer to everything is here within each of us. We only have to ask and then just let the answer show up in people, places and things. Everything is unfolding for our highest and best journey. The Universe is for us. This is our evolution, and yes, life never ends. Consciousness is all there is and we get to experience life in any way we choose no matter what is going on in our outer world. In fact, really, our outer world is only a reflection of what we are thinking, what we believe. God creates by contemplation and we are always contemplating something. The whole Universe is based in this one theory. Science knows it. We do know it. Now it’s time to live it.
