So many things in life seem frustrating and hard to deal with until we know how they work. The first time I sat in front of a computer many years ago, I did not even know how to turn it on. I learned to drive on a stick shift and it was almost magical when I stopped leap-frogging and killing the engine at intersections. That moment when it all become a naturally integrated movement of hands and feet was wonderful. People move from being a good cook to a chef after they learn how various elements affect each other; why dough rises etc. It is the inner workings of anything that we need to know if we want to fully utilize the power of it. Yes, we can drive a car without knowing how the engine runs, but we will never be a mechanic.
In a similar way, we can use the power of positive thinking to feel a little more in charge of our immediate experience, but until we understand why it works we will be busy getting parking places in crowded lots and not much more. It is the moment we get the astonishing truth that our mind is somehow linked to the universal creative process, all the time, that we begin to feel the ever present flow of Intelligence shaping itself into our best ideas, that we truly become conscious of how much we have to do with what we experience.
Religion used to be all about faith in an unseen power. Modern spirituality is about co-creating with an inherent power, the power of Mind, awareness, consciousness, perception. So much of it is about shifting mental gears so that we are thinking in a more cheerfully expectant manner. That has everything to do with how we see ourselves, how we think of God and what is possible. There are classes offered to learn more about how this all works.
