ONE GOD WHO IS FATHER OF ALL

ONE GOD WHO IS FATHER OF ALL: –

GOD, who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in man-made churches, temples or mosques. Nor does he need anything that we can supply by working for him, since it is he himself who gives life and breath and everything else to everyone. God is actually not far from anyone of us; as someone has said, ‘In him we live and move and exist.’

There is but ONE GOD. He is all that is. He is the Creator of all things and He is all-pervasive. He is without fear and without enmity. He is timeless, un- born and self-existent. He is the Enlightener and He can be realized by grace of Himself alone. He was in the beginning; He was in all ages. The True One is, was, and shall forever be. He is one, He is the first. He is all that is. Eternal Truth is His Name. He is the creator of all. Fearing naught, striking fear in naught; timeless is His image. Not begotten, He is self-existent. He was in the beginning; He is through all ages; He shall be the One who lives forever. Beyond thought, no thinking can conceive Him. How true it is that God has no favorites, but that in every nation those who are God fearing and do what is right are acceptable for him.”

The One God is the Father of all, we are all his Children.

The One God is the cause of all causes; knowledge and wisdom are His Gifts to us. He is not far, He is not near, and He is with us all. Praise the Lord with abiding love. If I can unite in myself, in my own spiritual life, the thought of the East and the West, of the Greek and Latin Fathers, I will create in myself a reunion of the divided Churches, temples & mosques and from that unity in myself can come the exterior and visible unity of these places of worship. For, if we want to bring together East and West, we cannot do it by imposing one upon the other.

Our religious traditions at their most authentic should free us to find traces of GOD in all things. GOD loves all manner of our being in the world and has made all things in harmony. As in our inner work, so our communal work for justice and peace is futile if we insist on the primacy of one form of being human over another, of one religion over others, or by choosing a mono-cul- tural path toward Joy for all beings that share this planet. God loves our infinite diversity and has choreographed an ordered dance of different stars. GOD IS ONLY ONE, HE IS OMNI-PRESENT, OMNI-SCIENT, OMNI-POTENT, OMNI BENEVOLENT, AND OMNI-TRUTH.

DETACHMENT

DETACHMENT: –

Your need power to remain free from the influence of others. Detachment is this power. If you cannot remain detached from influences, you will not be able to keep your thoughts under control. From there it will be a down-ward spiral until all trace of inner well-being is lost. The first step in detach- ment is to understand who you are as a spiritual entity. This allows you to detach yourself from your physical identity, and its world of limited thoughts and feelings and attach instead to your spiritual personality, the being of inner peace and power. A normal day will be filled with challenges to this detachment. On the one side will be your spiritual awareness, but on the other side will be the attraction towards human beings and material world. Detachment is not a question of becoming separate from the later, but of simply remaining conscience of yourself as a spiritual being whilst being in the world and playing your part. Detachment simply means to keep yourself centered in your spirituality.

How to Develop Detachment?

“We need to reach a state in which, while we are living in this world, we are detached from it. We need to realize that all the possessions of this world are transitory. They are an illusion.”

“If we can get to a state where we can control our desires, then we will find that our life will move in harmony with its environment, our mind will be at peace, and we will be able to make tremendous strides towards the ultimate aim of our life, which is to know our real self and to be one with God.”

“Being content does not mean inaction. We must still do our work in the world. We must still try to earn an honest livelihood. We must still do our best in whatever field we are placed. We must still do our best to provide for our families. The difference is that we do so with a spirit of detachment. We do our work but are not attached to the results.”

“Let us not think that this is the real world. Let us recognize that this is the world of Maya, the world of illusion. But even though we are in this world of illusion, this is a grand opportunity that God has given for us to recognize our- selves. Let us know that each one of us has been created by the hand of God, has been created by God. That realization we will only have as we go within and experience the divine Light and Sound of God.”

WILL POWER AND SELF CONTROL

WILL POWER AND SELF CONTROL: –

Self-control is a matter of balance. The mid-brain region governs desire. The prefrontal cortex governs control. We work that will power muscle everyday – and like any muscle, it often goes weak. Also like a muscle, however will power can be strengthened and growing number of researchers, using brain scans, virtual reality and more are learning what kind of psychic exercises it takes to get us in shape. Much of that research hasn’t made it into popular con- sciousness yet, but the more scientists publish, the more we all learn.

Our brain operates at three levels: I will, I won’t and I want. For many of us, the I want part wins. It is easy to call lot of this as addiction, particularly when drugs, alcohol or behaviors like gambling are involved. But that can be superficial. Addiction is not always easy to define, but it might best be described as knowing that substance or behavior is wrecking your life and yet being unable to stop. Failure of will is more about behaviors that are compromising your life – making it less healthy or prosperous than it could be – yet can not quite be controlled even though you try.

But if will power is illusive, it’s also trainable and cultivatable. The simple truth is that the brain evolved from the back to the front. The back is the wanting part. The front is the restraint part, and they are both with us all the time. The goal of the rising band of willpower researchers is to make peace between back and front.

Good Feelings: –

Good feelings for others are like ointments that can heal wounds and rees- tablish friendship and relationships. Good feelings are generated in the mind, are transmitted through your attitude and are reflected in your eyes and smile.Smiling opens the heart and a glance can make miracles happen.

Personal change: –

When you do not upset yourself thinking about how others must change and instead you concentrate on your own change, good things start to happen. First, you will feel better about yourself. Second, you will start to have positive feelings towards others and start to understand them. Third, others start having a more positive attitude towards you.

Staying Peaceful (Free from Desires): –

Desires cause peace to disappear. You think that acquiring things will make you feel secure, but the reality is that the more you have the more fear there usually is of losing it, and the further you are from peace. Desires are the cause of all conflicts. When you want something and cannot get it you become frustrated. Learning to be free from desires is learning how to stay peaceful.

BRAIN POWER

BRAIN WAVES: –

Scientists have known for years that brain activity can be measured in wave patterns. Broadly speaking, the brain generates four kinds of patterns:

1. Delta waves – Seen most often in sleep.

2. Theta waves – When you are daydreaming or catnapping.

3. Alpha waves – often observed when you are aware but relaxed, like during a massage or a long run.

4. Beta waves – These are the key one for cognitive processing.

By measuring these waves, the body wave device can determine when your concentration has peaked and therefore when you are primed to make an important decision.

So how exactly does the Body Wave device works?

The Technology is based on electro-encephalography (EEG), the study of how brain activity – from automatic impulses like breathing to active thoughts like what to have for dinner – excites neurons to emit brain waves. This electrical activity originates in the brain but is transported along the central nervous system. You can wear the body wave device on your arm or actually anywhere on the skin, which is highly sensitive to changes in the central nervous system. The sensors register the electrical charges that occur in your brain when you concentrate hard. The act of concentration necessitates the firing of neurons in careful synchrony. That synchrony produces a unique electrical signature that can be measured. When you stop concentrating the synchrony breaks and the signature changes. The Body Wave device then transmits this change through a simple receiver plugged in to a USB port. A computer can tell you, in real time, whether you have been focused or were pondering what to do this weekend.

DEALING WITH FEAR, ANXIETY AND WORRY

DEALING WITH FEAR, ANXIETY AND WORRY: –

In the course of lifetime many people will suffer from devastating degree of anxiety and worry severe enough to meet the criteria for the medical diagnosis of an anxiety disorder, that serve no useful purpose and do nothing but under- mine their happiness, and interfere with their ability to accomplish their goals.

Mental Effect: –

The human brain is equipped with an elaborate system designed to register the emotions of fear, anxiety and worry. This system mobilizes us to respond to danger by setting in motion a complex sequence of biochemical and physiological events. The adoptive side of worry is that it allows us to anticipate danger and take preventive action. But excessive anxiety and worry can have devastating effects on the mind and body, becoming the source of much emotional suffering and even physical illness. On mental level, chronic anxiety can impair judgment, increase irritability, and hinder one’s overall effectiveness.

Excessive fear, Anxiety and worry can cause depressed immune function, heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, fatigue, and muscle tension and pain. Scientists have recently discovered a gene that is linked to people who are prone to anxiety and negative thinking.

How to overcome Anxiety: –
1) 
In most severe cases of anxiety, medication can be useful part of the treatment regimen. 2) Working on improving our physical health through proper diet and exercise can also be helpful. 3) Cultivating compassion and deepening our connection with others can promote good mental hygiene and help combat anxiety states. 4) Cognitive intervention – This technique involves actively challenging the anxiety generating thoughts and replacing with well-reasoned positive thoughts and attitudes.

How to overcome Fear: –

There are many types of fear, 1) These kinds of fear are very genuine, based on valid reasons, fear of violence or fear of bloodshed for example. 2) Fear about the long-term negative consequences of our negative actions, fear of suffering, fear of our negative emotions such as hatred. 3) There are fears of our own mental creations like childish fears to scare away the child. 4) There are fears based on mental projection. This kind of fear is related to hatred. In dealing with fear, one need to first use one’s faculty of reasoning and try to discover whether there is a valid basis of your fear or not.

How to overcome worry about a variety of Day-to-Day problems: –

To reduce that kind of worry is to cultivate a thought – If the situation or problem is such that it can be remedied then there is no need to worry about it. – If there is no way out, no solution, no possibility of resolution, then also there is no pointing being worried about it, because you can not do anything about it anyway. Some type of anxiety may have biological roots like some people tend to get sweaty palms, and for this medical treatment may be useful. In any case the sincere motivation acts as an antidote to reduce fear and anxiety.
