Cosmic Carpenter

1. God is all things, including the carpenter or creator of our cosmos.

2. The Cosmos is comprised of billions of galaxies, which we all share.

3. And it’s growing…it’s an ongoing project. We help it grow.

4. Fact: Light travels at 186,000 miles per second.

5. Do you understand how fast that is?

6. Examples: If we could travel the speed of light, it would take -

· 1 ¼ seconds to reach the moon.

· 8 minutes to reach the sun.

· 4 hours to reach the nearest star.

· 100,000 + years, never leaving the Milky Way

· 2,000,000 + years to reach the nearest galaxy

7. There are over 200 billion galaxies within the observable universe, each containing 100 billion suns.

8. What about the unobservable universe? Astronomers recently indicated that there was far more matter to the universe that we realized or could see…simply because much of it is a gas… nitrogen.

9. Wherever we look in the starry sky, we are literally looking at the past and its future may have already happened.

· We think we are looking at 2 stars next to each other, but we are actually seeing each of them as it was when their light set out on its journey (186,000 miles per second) to us.

· The nearest star is 4 hours away or 4 hours into the past when we gaze on it.

· We can gaze at a star that no longer exists because it’s future has not reached us yet. It could have been destroyed several hundred years ago in the explosion of a supernova, but being thousands of light years away, we would not see the explosion for a thousand light years into the future.

· The Crab Nebula is the remains of a supernova explosion observed by Chinese astronomers in 1054 A.D., but the actual explosion took place 3,000 B.C.

10. Questions:

· Where does it end? Or does it?

· And what holds it all together? "Dharma"? Eternal Laws? Universal Laws? Physical Laws? Spiritual Laws? God?

· Do space and time limit the universe? Limit God? Or is God limitless?

Hindu scriptures say: "The vast cosmos is one thought of God. That is as long as our universe lasts…one thought".

God and Nature

The Hindus have names for the different aspects of God. Because they realize God is in everything, both animate and inanimate, they have over 1,000 names. Once a year, they celebrate the 1,000 names of God by lighting 1,000 candles.

They realize, like many other traditions, that God is All, from the tree, to the little mouse, to the gentle doe, to humans. They realize that these living things are not just God’s creations, but manifestations of God. They are each expressions of God.

Reluctantly, I admit even spiders and snakes, are expressions of God. Everything is!

I know you realize this and I’m only telling you something you already know. God (Mother-Father God, Universal Intelligence, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.) who is in heaven and in our hearts, manifests in all living and non-living things, from the stone to the earth.

But why is the deer or the snake here, on this plane, in this solar system, on this planet?

Like us, they are expressions of God. Each one is God in action. They are expressions of God’s goodness, abundance, joy, and love.

I’m going to pick on trees…because we have so many of them. The tree blesses us with oxygen, shades us from the hot summer sun, and provides a kaleidoscope of summer and fall colors.

The tree, like all of God’s creatures, communicates with us, giving us important spiritual messages. The tree subtly tells us about the cycles of life and death. In spring it shows us birth, in summer how to live life to the fullest, and in fall how to withdraw into the death of winter…repeating the cycle…and in spring there is rebirth, again!!! Life anew…

We too are part of this cycle. I know you know.

You see God has left these great spiritual truths, these messages, for us to behold. God’s left them all in and about Nature. We only have to quiet ourselves and observe them. We’ve got to take the time.

When was the last time you hugged a tree or sat on a rock to meditate?

The only difference between the tree and us is that we have choice. We can choose how we express God. The tree, like most vegetation and lower life forms, is mostly preprogrammed. We are not!

Let me tell you what happened shortly after we came home. Between the hot water heater and well pump not running, I took time to sit in my recliner to catch my breath. Suddenly, a huge black bird swooped down from the nearby pine trees, landed on the windowsill across from my chair and began to deliberately peck on the window, trying to get my attention. Can you imagine that?

He was calling me away from my troubles; drawing me back to nature, back to God.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m not with God, when I forget God, my life goes down the spiral of tribulation. Have you every noticed?

God gave us a precious tool, our Minds. Sometimes we use them and sometimes we don’t. For some of us, the scale is tipped towards the "don’t". I’m probably most culpable with some of the dumb stuff I do… like filling the hot water heater without closing the pressure valve. Did you know that the pressure valve can act just like an open faucet? Let’s not go there…

Now, just as God answers our prayers through us, so does God create through us. There is no instruction manual, or is there? Maybe we’ve just misplaced it?

What will we create? How will we create? With good or bad intentions? Is it our responsibility! Well, we better care or our world will go to pot real fast!

Do we use our your minds to express God in a positive, loving way? Or in a negative or even thoughtless way?

The Hindu Upanishads and Yoga Sutras of Pantijala tell us we create our reality with our thoughts? This is a universal law!

So what do you think about most of the time? Is that what you are creating for yourself?

It’s incumbent upon each of us to take inventory of our thoughts. If they are negative, hurting, it’s our responsibility to change them to positive, loving thoughts.

Not only are we expressions of God, but also through our lives, our living, we create God…we expand God. It’s our choice. Choose wisely.

Going to God

Story - When I was working for the Federal Government, they sent me to a special 2-week executive course in Denver, Colorado. The classes lasted from 8AM to 8/9PM and were held in the windowless basement of this downtown hotel. The environment was depressing, though the food good. In any case, during the weekend I decided to visit my parents in California, figuring it was just a short hop from Colorado to California. I didn’t have the Course Director’s permission and I guess I got a little too comfortable and took too many liberties. So I caught the next flight for LA, California. I spent a great weekend with them. Except my Monday flight back was canceled do to inclement weather. I tried real hard to find another flight, but I couldn’t get back to Denver, to the course until Tuesday afternoon, losing one and a half days of training. I was a nervous wreck because the instructors and course Director were so stern and regimented. I new there would be trouble.

When I got back the course Director hauled me into her office, lectured me, then kicked me out. They wouldn’t let me finish the week.

Now I felt real bad because my command had spent a lot of money (in the thousands) for me to get this training. I didn’t know what they would do to me…maybe I would even lose my job.

That Tuesday evening I cried for hours in my hotel room, I cried to God and eventually fell asleep with tears running down my face.

But when I awoke everything seemed different. I felt calm, as though I had a solution to my problem. Not knowing why, I was compelled to call the Deputy Director that I worked for back in NJ and came clean. I told him what happened and offered to reimburse them for the course costs and travel moneys.

To my surprise, he laughed!!!! And told me don’t worry about it. If it were him, he probably would have done the same thing… To me, it was a miracle. God and my employer forgave me.

Why? How did this happen?

Well, I got just a little too comfortable when things were going right for me. I wasn’t praying or meditating. My ego was in full control or I should say, out-of-control. The results were a huge error in judgment that could have cost me my job, to say the least about embarrassing my employer and myself.

Solution: I’m going to tell the end of my story in one sentence. I’ll ask you to go over that sentence with me several times, and then I’ll simply let you absorb the solution into your own thinking, knowing that this is the way that Jesus and other great prophets would have done it.

To solve my problem, first I went to God in prayer and meditation, affirming to myself that God would help me, until I was convinced that God was in charge and already helping. And then I did exactly what I was led to do without modification of any kind. Almost instantaneous to that telephone call to my Deputy Director, my problem was solved! Praise God. Thank you Mother-Father God. Amen.

Summary: Here is the sentence to sum it all up –

"In the secret place of my mind I thanked God for the answer until I was told what to do and did it".

I’ll say it again: "In the secret place of my mind I thanked God for the answer until I was told what to do and did it".

I’ll say it one last time: "In the secret place of my mind I thanked God for the answer until I was told what to do and did it".

Questions:

1. When there is a problem, who should to the praying? The answer is the person with the problem. However, others can help the person in the center of a troublesome event by praying for or with them because that will help the person except the help of God. You can’t or probably won’t except the help of God if you’re looking outside yourself to other people to help. That is why we say go to God first!

2. How do you know your answer is from God? You’ll feel an enormous sense of a burden being lifted. What God suggests you do as the answer will not be painful or embarrassing. God’s answers are couched in love. You will feel relief and you will just know it’s the right solution or answer.

Challenge: Think you can learn to do that? Of course you can. We both can. And we all will catch on to this esoteric methodology one day and indeed will experience heaven while here on earth. But remember, go to God first!

Universal Laws – Dharma

Universe is a "unity" that –

· holds everywhere

· source of all law

· another aspect of Universal Intelligence, God

"Unity of life" makes the universe a friendly place if we understand the rules.

· Don’t need to travel to the moon to get a moon rock. Just pick up any rock on planet earth…both are made up of the same atoms just as our bodies are made up of the same atoms.

· Life is not unique to only this planet. If life is here, it is elsewhere. Why? Our planet is not independent of the rest of the universe.

Each level of our being, each dimension, has its laws. We just need to learn and follow them.

Too often we mix the laws, applying physical laws to the spiritual dimension, expecting certain results. For example:

· Stand in front of a moving train, challenging the Universe or God to save. What’s wrong?

· Searching for Joy by pursuing materialism. What’s wrong?

The earth and sun follows laws, performing great gymnastic, dancing feats –

· Earth spins on its axis, making a complete revolution every 24 hours.

· Earth orbits the sun every year, traveling 600,000,000 miles.

· Sun travels through the Milky Way for some unknown destination without ever hitting another star or planet. (Accident or Law?)

In all this great complexity, there is great harmony.

· Every cosmos, galaxy quasar, quark, black hole, sun, moon, planet, dust moves harmoniously, within a fixed cosmic order.

· What applies to the earth and our sun, also applies to other planets and their suns.

The slightest dis-equalibrium could destroy everything. Why doesn’t it?

· Universal Intelligence, God, says everything must obey the laws

· That is a condition of existence.

Law of Love

Jesus the Christed One, St. Francis of Assisi, Teresa of Avila, Mahatma Gandhi, and many more enlightened beings have practiced this Law.

They have used it to transform darkness into light within themselves and within others. They have transformed everything - negative thoughts, emotions, and memories into positive qualities. They have transformed their personalities; thus, realizing their higher, God selves.

The transformation took years and didn’t happen just overnight.

They learned the paradox of love: "It is in giving love that we receive love". They exercised their will and learned to love others, unconditionally, more than themselves, beginning with those nearest them. Their love was not divisive; they expected nothing in return.

Do you love those around you more than yourself? Without expectations?

This is real love and not easy to achieve. It takes a lot of work over a long period of time.

How is it developed? We put our own egos aside and feel the unity between others and ourselves. When others suffer, we feel compassion and try to help; when others are joyful, we feel their joy; when others are sorrowful, we feel and share their sorrow so that they are not alone.

We learn not to be provoked by negativity in others, but to show understanding, patience and respect with every test. We realize that they are only acting out of fear. Overtime, love grows until the recipient realizes we are incapable of hurting them. They feel our trust and loyalty. They feel safe and secure, enough to let our love in and to start their own process of self-transformation. Thus, we send light into darkness!

All of this is possible because we recognize the underlying unity of life, realizing God is everywhere, in everyone and everything, from the butterfly to the baby, from the rock to the flower, from a chicken to a man… God is in everything!

Meditation – Gold Light of God

Make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes. I want everyone to take in a deep breath, in, in, in, and hold it, hold it. Ok. Now slowly exhale. Let it all out…

With my guidance, we are going to take 5 more deep breaths and on the 5th breath you will silently count backwards with me, from 5-1. When you reach 1, you will be in your alpha level, comfortably, deeply asleep and you will not be able to open your eyes, though you could open them at any time.

Remember, on the 5th breath you will enter an alpha state of sleep.

Now close your eyes. Good.

· One (1), Breathe in, in, in, hold, and out, out, out, relaxing deeply, letting go of all physical tension, relaxing your muscles from the tip of your head to your toes.

· Two (2), Breathe in, in, in, breathing in healing light, hold it… hold…exhale…exhale, releasing body toxins.

· Three (3), Breathe in all the way, now exhale out, out, letting go of all your worries and problems.

· Four(4), Breathe in, in…breathing in love and healing light into your heart, and out, out, out, sending love into the universe.

· Five (5), When I count backwards from 5 to 1, take in a really deep breath and hold it... until I tell you to exhale.

Inhale, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Hold…Exhale completely, totally relaxed and asleep. Continue breathing. You are Deep…Deep…Asleep…at an Alpha level. You will remain Deep Asleep until I awaken you…You will find this experience restful, enriching, transforming and healing. The Deeper you go, the greater the benefit to you.

The more I talk, the more relaxed you are, going deeper and deeper into your mind…the more peace and clarity there is…and feelings of spiritually uplifting. With each breath, these feelings expand and intensify. And each time you meditate, you will go deeper, finding your own truth and inner peace. And each time you wake up, you will be ready to go back even deeper.

Now you are relaxed from the top of your head to the tips of your toes…resting peacefully in your special place where you feel the love, abundance, and joy God wants for you. You know that all that you seek is already within you. It is there all the time, and if you give it time, it will make itself known to you…for the Kingdom of Heaven is within you.

The more you meditate, the more God fills you with resolve…healing and loving, gentle and benevolent. Centered on God that rests within you, you can overcome your life fears or problems. The answers are all within you.

As you meditate, and enter the chamber of your higher consciousness, the answers come to you, one by one, with God’s hand guiding you. Put your ego aside, and surrender to God. Continue breathing.

Now, imagine that there is a bright golden light, like the sun, within your being, in the very center of your being. As you continue to breathe, feel the light begin to expand, gently, warm and soothing. Each breath makes the Light bigger, warmer, softer, and brighter. Feel the Peace that comes from the Light, from God. Feel the quiet that it brings to you. Let the Light permeate your entire being as you become aware of its pleasant feeling…the feeling you have when you are doing something that you like very much, that you have done many times and know very well. It isn’t important what the activity is, just that you have the feeling of calm sureness. Breathe into that feeling of Sureness. Allow it to mix with the Golden Light that fills your body until you feel that same feeling of confidence and capability in each part of you.

Feel it in your mind. Feel it in your neck and shoulders, in your back, your heart, your lungs, and in your stomach. Feel sure and confident even in your arms and legs, hands and feet. Let the gentle confidence softly warm and tingle your body. Feel your body glowing, golden and warm, with light, with God energy.

Continue to breath into this feeling and allow it to expand, even beyond your body as it glows into each situation and relationship in your life. Let the details of your situations be soft for now. Focus you attention and breath on supporting the Golden Light that surrounds you. Become accustomed to the feeling, to the idea that you can feel sure and calm and clear whenever you wish, just by awakening the Golden Light of God within you.

Continue breathing, and feel the Golden Light becoming one with each breath. Whenever you want to bring forth the feeling of sureness, of confidence and clarity, you simply have to breathe deeply and consciously. With each breath, you feel sure and confident, and your whole body tingles with its soft warmth, with the glowing golden, warm light of God within you…of God within you.

You are truly God’s child. God loves you and needs you. At this moment you are lifted up into God consciousness, you feel one with God, one with yourself, where there is only Light, Love and Life. Now rest, listen to the silence, to God…all is well in your life. Whatever you need…whatever you need… nothing is impossible with God. Nothing is impossible with God…

You will awaken as I count backwards from 10 to 1. But take your time. When I reach a count of 1 you will awaken, feeling fine.

10 – Get ready to wake up now, feeling just fine, but keep your eyes closed.

9 – Your mind is peaceful, clear and sharp.

8 – Your memory is perfect.

7 – You are slowly awakening.

6 – You feel good, your body healthy.

5 - You will have a good week… a cheerful, happy, confident, and positive outlook.

4 - Now, Gently stretch you toes and fingers, awakening slowly.

3 – Remembering, next time you meditate, hearing my voice, you will go deeper.

2 – You are almost awake.

1 - Child of God, now you are wide-awake…Feeling Love, Feeling Great! Open your eyes.

Let the details of your situations be soft for now. Focus you attention and breath on supporting the Golden Light that surrounds you. Become accustomed to the feeling of Peace and Love, to the idea that you can feel calming Peace and healing Love whenever you wish, just by awakening the Golden Light of God within you.

Continue breathing, and feel the Golden Light becoming one with each breath. Whenever you want to bring forth the feeling of Peace, of Love, you simply have to breathe deeply and consciously. With each breath, you feel the calm clarity of Peace and the healing tenderness of Love, and your whole body tingles with its soft warmth, with the glowing golden, warm light of God within you…of God within you.

You are truly God’s child. God loves you and needs you. God only wants Love, Joy and Abundance for you…Love, Joy and Abundance…
