False Perceptions

Have your ever thought about your ability to think falsehoods? Like, I believe a giant green hairy dragon with ten tentacles is outside my door. Of course, most of us would not believe there is or even could be such a thing outside our doors. Yet we can construct anything our imaginations can contrive. And we all do, on a daily basis. All of us are constructing falsehoods every day!

"Not me!" you say. "I am not a liar,"  or "I am a realist." Well let's think it through a little further. What is your perception of your fellow man? Pick someone who really disgusts you or at least mildly annoys you and analyze your perception of this person. Is she a perfectly created child of the universe, beautifully and wonderfully made? Is he made of the same spirit of good that made you? Anyone being honest enough with themselves can admit they have had far from angelic thoughts about what a person is made of when that person annoys or disgusts. And who wouldn't be quick to admit such a person is a devil of some sort?

Maybe at that moment of disgust, she appears to be made of some sort of garbage not suitable for mankind. And now we get to the point. "He appears to be made of some sort of garbage..." Appears to whom? To you of course and anyone else who would agree with you. Is not this appearance simply a false thought, for does it not contradict the truth that one human being is made from the same spirit as another, even if they don't always act that way? You need not accept this philosophy. But you can investigate its validity by applying the following suggestion.

 The suggestion is this: Try a different perception next time you entertain a thought about someone that they are anything less than perfect. Forget about the person for a moment and address only the thought you have about the person. Acknowledge that your opinion at the moment is your perception. Then, treat it as a false perception, like the giant green hairy dragon. Take this treatment more than once. Instead of focusing on the person who annoys, treat the thought about that person as a false perception. False perceptions, of course, are false. They have no substance in reality. Allow the perception to disappear. It will, with practice, disappear.

Then note the results of applying this treatment to yourself. You may find it has some effect, maybe more effect than going over and over in your mind what the annoying person has done or is continuing to do. Perhaps that person changes, or you change. Or maybe, just maybe, the whole darn problem disappears.

Perhaps into the nothingness from which it came!

Infinite Soul Wisdom: Life is so Simple

Life is so Simple

Inside is all the power of the Universe. Inside where? Inside you. If this is so, why are we not all gods going around ruling everyone and everything? Wouldn't that cause the ultimate in conflict? The answer is simple. Isn't conflict what we have now all over our world? . There are not two worlds, a spiritual and a materiel, a hell and a heaven, a heaven and an earth. There is one world. Perceptions by our human minds are what seems to confuse the matter. As a matter of fact, matter is confusing, it is pliable, changeable, temporary. The power of the Universe is permanent though we perceive changing forms. The actual energy is never created or destroyed. These changing forms are not reality when perceived as changing. This is a perceived reality that assuages the human ego.

Allow ourselves to be confirmed in the fact that no human power makes the sun and stars shine, rotates the earth, grows trees. This is all we need to unleash the incredible power we are holding back from within ourselves that will move the mountain of pain, misery, grief, despair and all the wars, illnesses and destruction which accompany them.

Life is so simple. Get quiet. Look inside. In there, no matter what we think, is always all the power of the universe. All we need do is let is come out as in the words of Emerson: "Open out a way to let the imprisoned splendor escape."

What is a golden rule?

Love your neighbor as yourself is the beginning of God consciousness. The consciousness of our true being. Our bodies, minds, and skills are tools Infinite Wisdom works through. This is how we make peace. Not by perceiving so-called problems and trying to fix them through human means or prayer; but by claiming the one power, the only power that makes us one. So we get back to how I treat you/me affects us all.

A recent inquiry about God Consciousness

Q: How would you define consciousness? Is god our actual consciousness? Trying to understand this..

A: It is as easy and as difficult to understand as it might be for a fish to understand water. Water is everywhere keeping the fish alive, in fact, it is the fish's very breath of life that permeates his whole being. Yet the fish may not be consciously aware of the water, sort of like taking the water for granted but much more than that.

God is the water and you are the fish. To become conscious of this is to no longer search for consciousness or its meaning, because it already is, and already has been here always whether we understand it or not.

The thing is, I glory in it. I revel in it. I sing and dance and live as joy, happy and free, taking pure delight in each moment of my connection to the water.

I drink the consciousness the all-power of the universe. I savor its ambrosia as it easily satisfies my soul's thirst, and I give myself permission to share this joy with everyone I meet.

Thank you so much for asking. Now write your own answer.

Is this all there is?

We have five senses and a mind. There is more going on than our five senses and our mind can sense and conceive. This is obvious to the logical mind, but to the human ego this is an offensive concept. After all, we are the most superior being on the planet so we must have the complete ability to sense, perceive and understand all things to their fullest. Actually, we do, but not in the human sense. Our human abilities are limited. Fortunately, we are a creation of an unlimited universe. Let's propose that there is some way to connect to this sense of the unlimited universe, this complete knowing. This 'all-truth'. Let us further suppose this way is accessible to us somehow some way despite our limited senses and mind.

Since most of us are not aware of such a connection, it is possible the connection is not attained through any of our human abilities.

With this in mind, let us get quiet and alone with our own thoughts. Let us treat our thoughts gently, not analyzing or judging them, but calmly observing them like we would a crowd of people passing by on a New York city sidewalk while we sat on a stoop and watched. Unattached, not drawing conclusions. Allowing thoughts of judgment to go past along with the changing crowd.

Let us try this repeatedly on a daily basis. The object is to give our human sense and our mind a break. We have sensed, analyzed and determined long enough. Know let us put those skills (albeit well-developed ones) aside and look for another way to perceive, a new way, perhaps indescribable with thoughts or words, but a way, nonetheless by which we may connect to infinite consciousness, infinite knowledge, all the truth beyond what our human senses have known.

Infinite Soul Wisdom

Infinite Soul Wisdom is one person's experience with the Infinite Way, just as Joel Goldsmith describe's all of his experiences with the Infinite Way. Yet it is for us to discover our own.. Our true soul's are infinite, and we can consciously connect to our true souls and, therefore, to infinite wisdom. Infinite wisdom is as accessible to you as air. Like air, it is invisible to human senses and the human mind. Yet it is everywhere and for everyone. There is only one place to look for infinite wisdom, and that place is available to everyone here and now. That place is inside your own being. Look inside for the truth of who you are. There may be many layers to unpeel, but it is worth the effort, for in the center of your being is pure love, wholeness, pure health, pure joy and...infinite wisdom.
