The night after presenting a seminar on the 3 Principles, I had a dream that began quite gruesomely but ended with a lovely feeling. What I realized in the end, is what makes it important to share.
In the dream, I was riding my bicycle alone, but other people were walking and biking alongside me. As we entered below a long bridge, a helicopter behind us, also entered below the bridge so we were forced to scatter to make room for it. I thought this must be part of an air show or a PR event.
It soon became evident that the helicopter had mistakenly entered under the bridge because the pilot had lost control and had no choice. Once it made it through the bridge, I could see that a man had become tethered to the helicopter and then it began to rise again with the tethered man dangling by one leg like a rag doll. The Helicopter then lowered itself and the man, as others rushed to the scene to release the man who had been twisting around and around as you can imagine, since he was suspended by a rope around his ankle. I remember seeing red which I suspected was blood. I then landed in an area where people were shooting at one another and I was shown where to take cover, in someone’s home until it was safe to leave.
Then I woke up and realized that I did not feel fear, or horror or anything, other than curiosity, while the dream was taking place. So I became curious about that. It was so gruesome why did I not get affected by it? I did remember having one feeling though; I recalled feeling fondness for the first responders and the human spirit behind that noble cause.
It then occurred to me that we all come from a formless, spiritual energy that was always here, it was here before us, and it will be here after us. As I see it now, we ARE that formless spiritual energy getting to have a temporary human experience here on planet earth. We can play here or fight here, worry or get angry; there are a variety of choices. The most important thing is that we have the free will to choose from a smorgasbord like no other, here on earth, in every second of our time here.
In that moment I SAW how ridiculous it is to spend any of my short time in fear or anger or disappointment or judgment. I don’t have to, no one forces me to; it’s just me choosing to use the divine power of Mind, Thought and Consciousness for my personal human journey here on earth the way I choose. It is my choice how I use these 3 Principles that give me my personal human experience.
I also realize that this moment will not last, but what a delicious taste! I know that by looking in a certain direction, I’ll have more luscious tastes. That direction is before the contamination of our personal thinking, in pure consciousness.
