Some Thoughts about Manifestation

"For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23: 7)

"The kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17: 21)
Two days ago I noticed a friend had a picture of himself, and some friends, on his journals. I thought one of his friends looked like John Lennon.

That evening, I pondered over the "kingdom of God" which is a real place that exists within. A while back I had a vision where I was shown how to live in that space within myself that is my God-presence. We all have this space within us. The God space is the one "I" in all. Thus, it is this One that is experiencing life as Enocia." Connecting to the one, universal "I" is the equivalent of connecting to electricity. Everyone has access to electricity, but in this reality you have to pay for the privilege. Similarly, everyone has access to the one universal "I" but unlike electricity, the universal "I" is free. You simply have to know how to connect. Another way to connect is by simply realising that there is only One in infinite manifestations.

As I live within the inner space, whatever I create is coming from oneness. There is the experience of oneness where the thought of the thing is the thing itself. Put another way, if you can think it, it already exists. If I think about a man with a red pen, it is the same as a man with a red pen. Sooner or later I’m going to see a man with a red pen.

The problem with the thought as thing is that if your thoughts manifest instantly, you don’t want to be tossed about from pillar to post because of your thoughts. Take last week as an example. I had been chatting about politics on the web with a few friends, nothing serious, just having a laugh. I went into town with the intention of going somewhere so I got on the bus going to my destination. The bus driver changed his mind and terminated elsewhere. I decided I would use the opportunity to visit the local bookshop. When I had finished in there, on my way out I bumped into a Member of Parliament, a former member of the Labour cabinet. All because of our political discussion.

As you can see, the universe is like a computer that accepts my thoughts and reflects them back as thoughts of experiences, whether it's what I want or not. This can make life seem chaotic. I could try and think as little as possible but that is impractical. Why? Because I am a writer and I express myself in words. It is therefore important that my thoughts don’t hurt others. How can I achieve this? By realising the nature of reality, which is all is One; all is Love; Love is the only Cause. Thus, all thought-forms, tangible or intangible, are Love; and Love never hurts.

For instance, I have had grit in my eye and have felt no pain because I knew the grit to be Love. I can chop onions and not expect my eyes to stream because I know onions are Love in manifestation. I can bang my head against a brick wall, accidentally of course, and not hurt because I know the wall is Love.

Yesterday, I woke up with a sense of excitement that I was going to have a lovely surprise. That old eighties song by Tiffany called I Think We're Alone Now popped in my head. The chorus goes:

Running just as fast as we can
holdin' on to one another's hand
tryin' to get away into the night
and then you put your arms around me
and we tumble to the ground
and then you say

I think we're alone now
there doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now
the beating of our hearts is the only sound
The song was going round and round in my head. Why this song and why now?

Later after I'd finished writing I headed off into town. I had no idea where I was going. Maybe, I should go to a bookshop, my favourite pastime. In my mind's eye, I saw myself in a specialist bookshop based in a health clinic. I once thought about working there as a healer. When I want to keep up to date with the many forms of therapies, it's a useful place to go and collect information. OK, that's obviously where I need to be. I arrived at the bookshop and picked up a book. I can't now recall the title. I opened a page at random and saw a chapter about someone called Drunvalo Melchizedek, who is supposed to have some kind of Melchizedek consciousness. Hmmm! Interesting. I put the book back on the shelf. On the same shelf was a book by Drunvalo Melchizedek called Living in the Heart. I decided to have a browse. Drunvalo was writing about the space within, the Kingdom of God, that he calls the "sacred heart." In one chapter, Drunvalo discusses the difference between creating with Mind and with the sacred heart. Mind creates a polarity. Thus, if you wish to experience peace, Mind will create both peace and war because that is its nature. The sacred heart is a place of unity that connects all in oneness.

At the end of the book, Drunvalo quotes the last lines from John Lennon's song Imagine:

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
As I waited for my bus I was in awe of how I had attracted everything I had been thinking about: the space within me, John Lennon. No wonder I had that Tiffany song in my head, it was to do with the heart: "the beating of our hearts is the only sound." I looked across the road and saw a chess shop. My friend, who has the picture of the John Lennon look-alike on his journals, works in a chess shop. Could this be the same shop? I crossed over to check but it wasn't.

Later I went to catch my bus home. When I am in town, I usually need 3 or 4 buses, depending on my connections. The first bus arrived as soon as I arrived at the bus stop which took me part of the journey. When I arrived at another station, my next bus arrived. When I got off that bus, my other bus was standing at the stop as if it was waiting for me. Usually, I don't bother with the last bus as it's only about 10 minutes walk home from there. But this time, the last bus was right behind us.

This is what happens when I am connected to the one "I." There is no need for me to think about anything, everything is done automatically. The Intelligence within meets all needs perfectly.

All is One; all is Love.

With love,
