We believe we know everything about life and what it is. We believe we know everything about the world and how it works. Especially if we've reached a certain status in our lives we become increasingly haughty about what we think we know.
Einstein said: "The more I know, the more I know I don't know."
So deep knowledge really inspires humility.
Michael Jackson's 10 rules of success are among the finest YouTube has to offer. Those along with Quincy Jones words of remaining true to yourself will get you rolling any day.
"Be humble," Michael said, "simple and innocent like a baby."
That really coincidences with Denzel Washington, who at a graduate speech in Philadelphia said:
"May you put your slippers way under the bed at night, so that you have to get down on your knees in the morning and fetch them. While you are down there, thank God for his grace that he in the future will give you what is already yours!"
That last part is my favourite.
"Your hopes and dreams," Denzel says, "are promises. God gave you these to make sure you know that it is already yours. So make sure that around your deathbed the ghosts of your unfulfilled dreams don't linger about."
If we realize that our hopes and dreams are actually promises our Lord made of things to come, we act differently.
Like Quincy Jones said, we're never too old to achieve these dreams. You can become an attorney at 70. One of my mother's private singing students finished her church organist exams, receiving her degree at age 70. Another lady friend of my mom's got a bachelor's degree in art history at age 73. Grandma Moses started painting at 75 and became a successful painter at age 78. John Rowe was Britain's oldest ballet dancer at age 91. Günther Fiedler ran a 300 foot dash in 15,76 seconds at age 96. Johannes Heesters was still performing his hit role Danilo in the operetta "The Merry Widow" at age 103.
My mother Gun Kronzell had spent 60 years as a successful professional singer, vocal professor and theatrical director. At age 80, she still spoke of auditioning her Brünhilde for my boss at the opera house. So it is not so much how successful we become, but that we do not give up our dreams in the process.
What we believe defines us.
What we think comes true.
Your thoughts are your radar.
Accordingly, scientists found out in a laboratory that thoughts actually have weight.
Professor Mio Watanabe from the University of Tokio photographed the aura, thus proving its existence.
The scientific definition of the aura is a "Bio-Energetic Field" and it has a radius of roughly 4 or 5 feet. Like everything in the universe, our auras seem to be in vibration, many times a second. We fluctuate in and out of ourselves many times a second, which means we are constantly renewed along with our cells, who reconstruct a 100 % renewal of our entire body every seven years. How, then, can we remember anything, if we are renewed every second? Every electron in us seems to move.
The answer is the energy that binds us together, that holds everything together, the universe: our reality. Our spiritual energy. Our soul.
It's the only reality.
Theoretical starphysicist Michio Kaku from the University of New York has built a gigantic complex in Oregon that collides electrons, hoping to find higher scientific particles that define this spiritual existant energy.
This gets even more interesting once we realize that, actually, we don't exist at all. Most of any matter is mostly empty space. The atoms we consist of are, roughly speaking, cores with vibrating particles circling way off in their distance, every atom equivalent of a pea on a football field. Even the to us completely immobile stones actually consist of wildly vibrating matter.
What holds it together is energy.
God is the only solution to that equation. We call that energy God, but he or she or it ain't a bearded guy on a cloud or a chick that requires us to call her by a certain name or pray to him in a certain church. The conscious energy we call God is inside all of our eternal spiritual energy. All it requires is for us to live in harmony with every other existence.
Actually, no holy book is required for us to find God. The answer is inside our emotions, our spiritual energy, and it never left us, ever. In fact, it was the reason the holy books were written in the first place.
The holy books are only an interpretation of that force.
Yes, George Lucas knew what he was talking about.
We control our destiny. Actually, our energy does.
So direct your energy to a good source that will renew it and spread it around and make it better. That way, you will become part of something bigger.
What we do when we pray (regardless of faith) is send higher electrons, the kind Michio Kaku is researching, out to create a result.
Belief is actually hard work, not esoteric mumbo-jumbo. When you pray, you are sending out these higher electrons, again: the kind Michio Kaku aims to find, which can circumvent the particles of your choice, your loved ones, to protect them. So, yes, your angels protect your loved ones, but so do you ... with your own higher electrons. You are a working angel.
The better you are to others, the greater your happiness.
All truly successful people find that out sooner or later.
Einstein's discovery that minds control the motion of electrons, thus matter, is a revolution. It is time that we accept that spirit is the only reality and that we can affect reality with our thoughts. If we use our faith to benefit all involved the joy for us is as big as everyone involved. We are creators. Not only do we make love with each other to create children. We also make love to reality to create new emotional children of our own, so make sure your creations are good ones for all.
This knowledge also requires a huge sense of responsibility. It is a subtle, a very subtle, and sensitive process. Every thought counts.
Energy is never lost.
Sound waves never die.
Soul waves don't die either.
Be spiritually honest about what you send out.
Basically, what is good for all is good for all. Love and kindness is the key.
God is not of this world, so why would she require worldly tributes like taxes?
There is no strange key of religious ritual, no divine joy in a thousand repetitions, no secret code of superstition and certainly no sin in hot faithful sex. If it hurts no one and creates only love, it is a key to salvation. Make love, not war? Why not? Why do we sneer and laugh at sex and praise babies? That is like loving pastry but hating bakers. Pope Alexander VI, the Borgia pope and Lucrezia's Daddy, slept around more than anyone, but executed adulterers. Does that make sense?
Rubens painted naked women, Shakespeare wrote sonnets about them, Mozart wrote songs about them and Tschaikowsky devoted ballets to them. When you see a couple kissing and embracing on an open street, from now on, please think: "Make love, make babies, mate, you are the saving grace of the world, you are angels, you make faithful love and not war!"
When you see a beautiful individual, don't be afraid to regard that individual as beautiful, spiritually as well as physically. After all, it is life and la vita é bella, n'est pas?
You will still be able to be faithful and regard someone as beautiful.
If we would regard nudity as natural and beautiful, as it is, the yellow press would be out of jobs. No paparazzi would be able to sell scandalous photos of a nude starlet. Why would something be scandalous that is completely natural?
"Oh, my God, she's naked," would be like "Oh, my God, she's eating!"
We need to be decent, respectful, honourable, but we were all born naked, so, if you have a partner, straight, gay or otherwise, go to that partner now, tell that person you love him or her, make hot faithful love with that person, not hot angry war with anyone. Love comes in many shapes and sizes, if the love is good for all and respectful, it improves all mankind.
Remember to set your priorities straight. Things are not always what they seem.
You are and remain energy in motion.
Use that energy to everyone's benefit.
God? She will thank you for it.
