One day on the subway in Philadelphia, a friend and EYE were discussing the concept of the glass half empty or half full. I noticed a young man across from us paying attention to our conversation. When I said “There is no spoon” (a line from the Matrix) the guy across from us said “What spoon and what glass are you talking about?” This of course became a teaching moment.l
Visualize a glass of water in front of you that is half full of water. Ask yourself the question “Is the glass half full or half empty?” The answer to the question will determine your outlook on life. Whether you know it or not, consciousness shapes reality. Your reality is the objectification of your state of consciousness. If you see the glass as half empty then you have a pessimistic, negative outlook on life. If you see the glass as half full you have an optimistic , positive outlook on life. If you see the glass as an illusion, and God as the only REALITY then you have the mind of a mystic. Your mind state and what you believe and view as real have a direct effect on your experience.
Research shows, from several projects, that placebo medicine can have a healing effect on people in a study if they believe it is real medicine.
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” “As above, so below”. “On earth as it is in heaven.” As above, and as it is in heaven , refer to consciousness, belief, and the spiritual plane. So below, and on earth refer to the physical plane of existence.
Before anything can manifest on earth, the physical plane, it must first exist on the spiritual plane in the world of ideas and belief. “ The Kingdom of heaven is within.” Within refers to your consciousness. It is not a physical place. “On earth as it is in heaven” means that which is first conceived by the mind’s eye, can be manifested here on the earth. Therefore we have the metaphysical concept “Thoughts are forms.” So I ask you is the glass half empty or half full? Just by believing and affirming in your state of consciousness that the glass is half full, you will begin to produce more abundance in your life. “My cup runneth over.”

All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.
An unprecedented event: a beloved world religious leader proposes a way to lead an ethical, happy, and spiritual life beyond religion and offers a program of mental training for cultivating key human values
Ten years ago, in his best-selling Ethics for a New Millennium, His Holiness the Dalai Lama first proposed an approach to ethics based on universal rather than religious principles. Now, in Beyond Religion, the Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way.

Today we are going to enter into one of my favorite subjects: the Science of Mind. My mother was into christian metaphysics, so eye was raised on a steady diet of Ernest Holmes, Joel Goldsmith, Mary Baker Eddy, and Neville. This science is most important for all people regardless of what their religion is because it deals with one of mans most important possessions: the mind. As a child eye was taught that the power of God was within ME. Eye was never taught to believe in a mystery God that was up in heaven somewhere, outside of my SELF.
” The world, and all within it, is mans consciousness objectified. Consciousness is the cause as well as the substance of the entire world. Consciousness in the ONE and only reality.” – Neville, Resurrection page 46
The ONENESS of Consciousness manifest a dual nature on this plane of existence. The two divisions of Consciousness are the conscious mind, and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind is masculine. The subconscious mind is feminine. The subconscious mind is the womb of creation the gives birth to our reality based on the impressions it receives from the conscious mind. “I do not change the condition of a people until they first change that which is within themselves.” That which must be changed inside a person to change there outer experience is the subconscious mind. Man transmits ideas to the subconscious mind through feelings and repetition. A feeling must be felt over and over again until it is impressed on the subconscious mind. When it is impressed on the subconscious mind, it will be manifest of the physical plane. In order to change our reality we must first learn to control our thoughts and feelings which create patterns on the subconscious mind. In a short lecture to a few close friends eye once explained the idea of the virgin birth/immaculate conception. Immaculate conception takes place when you have an idea or desire you want to manifest on the physical plane, and by assuming the feeling of what it would feel like when the idea/desire is manifest you create the seed that is planted into the womb of the subconscious mind. In time(which is an illusion) this seed-idea-thought form- will be born on the physical plane in the form of a virgin birth. Feeling a thing AS IF IT ALREADY EXIST is the KEY!!! Magic is the ability/power to take a thought form and make it manifest on the physical plane.
“Imagination is the beginning of the growth of all forms, and faith is the substance out of which they are formed. By imagination, that which exist in latency or is asleep within the deep of consciousness is awakened and given form.” – Neville “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The soul of man is masculine, and is related to the conscious mind. The spirit of man is feminine and is related to the subconsciousness. One tantric key for manifestation is for the soul(conscious mind) to make love with the spirit(subconscious mind), thus giving birth to a new reality. All things exist on the spirit plane before they manifest on the physical plane. We use the conscious mind to access the spirit through prayer and meditation. By faith it is done to you. Belief creates reality. When you develop the power within yourself to believe in things that are unseen, regardless of outer appearance, these things that you believe in will manifest. In the Quran God has said “This is the book for those who believe in the unseen.” Our beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) has said “pray to Allah with faith that Allah will answer your prayer.” In the Quran God has said “I answer the prayer of those who believe in Me.” The sufi says “pray to Allah with the feeling that your prayer has already been answered.” FEELING & BELIEF are the keys of manifestation.
please leave a comment, or ask a question. there is much much moor that could be said on this topic.
