A.T.O.N.E.M.E.N.T: A Time Of Noticing Every Misdeed Eventually Needs Tuning

~ "The beginning of atonement is the sense of its necessity." ~—Lord Byron



Atonement is essentially coming to the realization that all things are one, hence; at-one-ment. Whenever we start to feel disconnected from the one true source, there’s only one thing that can happen; delusion. Somehow or another, we convince ourselves that we are separate from all that is and that everything that happens to us has nothing to do with this truth. Sadly enough, there are countless people who live their lives this way constantly feeling like a victim of circumstance. If we truly stop to take a look at the condition of our lives, we will see that everything is divinely and rightly ordered according to the higher purpose of each individual. I know it may not seem this way at first glance but if you look deeper just beneath the fa├žade of your troubles, you will find a vein of wisdom coursing through your elaborate life plan. Sometimes it helps to look in hindsight and remember those times when we thought all was lost but some how miraculously we were able to see ourselves through by trusting in the divine. Thus far, every fearful situation I’ve experienced has ultimately turned out to be my greatest impetus…

A.L.I.G.N.M.E.N.T.

Discipline #3 A.L.I.G.N.M.E.N.T:A Law In Getting Natural Movement Easily Not Tragically

~ True freedom is where an individual’s thoughts and actions are in alignment with that which is true, correct, and of honor - no matter the personal price. ~

—Bryant H. McGill

Have you gotten out of alignment with your true purpose in life? Could your life use a re-balancing? Well, according to a quote from Brian Tracy, just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. But how do we know when we’ve gotten out of balance and a re-alignment is necessary? It’s really very simple. Ask yourself: Is your life flowing easily and effortlessly or do you continuously struggle to make life happen. Do you allow life to takes its natural course? Are you constantly struggling to make ends meet? Then quite naturally you are not in alignment with the law of abundance which says there is more than enough to go around and each person can have as much as their soul desires without having to take from another. Are you in resistance or reliance? If you are in resistance, then by the very nature of your struggle, you will continue to experience more resistance. Whatever we resist persist. By being in total reliance on God source, we know that we never have to resist the flow of the Universe because it is happening in perfect synchronicity.

The Universe doesn’t need our help to function perfectly. It can do that all by itself. So it doesn’t need our input or involvement. All we need to do is align ourselves with its divine perfection and the course of our lives will naturally begin to flow with ease and grace. The planetary bodies are perfectly aligned within the solar system in order to allow just the right amount of energy and gravitational pull from the Sun. There is no resistance in the Universe and when there is, the results are catastrophic. Planetary bodies collide and get off course ultimately resulting in their re-alignment in some form or another. As spiritual beings, we too often get off course but it doesn’t have to take a catastrophic event or an Earth-shattering experience in order to bring us back into alignment. All we have to do is take an honest assessment of our lives and ask ourselves: Have I truly gotten out of alignment with my highest calling? If the answer is no, then by all means, stay in the flow. But if by chance you happened to answer yes to this question, well then now would be the perfect time for you to start anew by recommitting yourself to your highest purpose. Make a decision right here and right now to re-align yourself with higher principles and resolve yourself to a life of ease and non-resistance. The interesting thing about making this decision is that the very moment we decide to seek balance in our lives, the Universe will miraculously begin to orchestrate the entire galaxy to serve the purpose of our ideas. When we are in total alignment, the Universe will aid and abet us by conspiring on our behalves...

A.C.T.I.O.N.

Discipline #2 A.C.T.I.O.N: A Continuous Tendency Involving Ones Nerve

~ A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided. ~

—Anthony Robbins

Action is the opposite of inertia. Whenever something is inert, it is inactive. On a subatomic level, nothing is inactive and everything is always in motion. Nothing is ever truly at rest. The nature of our physical make-up is designed through the process of molecules being constantly in vibration. The whole concept of physical matter is nothing more than the culmination of vibrating stuff. Atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons and quarks are forever interacting on the subatomic level in order to generate energy. Energy is always in motion. In fact, it can never “not be” in motion. As energetic beings, humans are also too, forever in motion, not so much in a physical or literal sense, but in an energetic sense. This means that we are always in a state of action as opposed to a state of complete rest. That being the case, it would behoove us to know this basic aspect of beingness in order to determine how this principle can best serve our purpose.

The greatest action any person can ever take is one of mental action. Thought generates energy. Energy generates momentum and momentum generates motion. In The Master Key System written by Charles F. Haanel he says, “Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power.” Once things are set in motion on the mental plane, it’s simply a matter of time before they begin to materialize on the physical plane. In fact; nothing is ever created on the physical plane without first being created on the finer levels of existence. Scientifically, thought generated by the mind produces a subtle, etheric energy which vibrates at the level of pure, unadulterated substance. This substance then goes forth into the realm of all ideas where it picks up the momentum of manifestation. Given the proper amount of sustenance, these thoughts will eventually materialize into form.

Discipline #1 A.C.C.E.P.T.A.N.C.E

A Cool Collected Eased Perspective Towards Any New Challenging Encounter

~ The quickest way to change your attitude toward pain is to accept the fact that everything that happens to us has been designed for our spiritual growth. ~

—M. Scott Peck

Something divine occurs the moment we realize that life is unfolding in the exact way that it should even if we can’t see the wisdom in its unfoldment. Back of every situation is a unique plan carrying out itself to perfection. And while it’s often difficult to see what this plan actually is, this doesn’t negate the fact that everything, absolutely everything, happens according to certain laws and principles. We call them, spiritual principles or universal laws and everything is governed in one way or the other by these laws and rules. Mohandas Ghandi said; “There is an orderliness in the Universe, there is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is no blind law; for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings.” The difficulty of living as human beings is that we have become so unaware of these laws and therefore fail to make the association whenever something occurs in our lives that we are displeased with. Through what I like to call “cognitive disassociation,” which is merely another way of saying amnesia, we have forgotten how everything is related in one way or another by the intricate tapestry of cause and effect. This means that for every action there is an equal reaction and with each and every act we commit, we can most assuredly expect a complimentary result. But, unless we are able to trace all of our actions back to the moment of inception, it becomes virtually impossible for us to connect the dots and see the correlation of events in our lives today. Be that as it may, the fact remains, how everything we’ve ever done up to this point in our lives carries with it a residual energy. This means that nothing goes unaddressed and every occurrence has to be met with an outcome. There is no such thing as an unwarranted act or a senseless act because everything contains within it a justification on some level. However, in most cases the reasoning eludes us and we fail to see the logic behind many of life's most important lessons…
