Really Unlimited

    The term “unlimited” is very overused these days and is rarely, if ever, true when it is used. A cell phone service says “unlimited minute for just $55 a month!” but since the number of minutes in a month is limited, the number of minutes you can talk is limited also. You simply cannot talk for more minutes than there are in the month so it isn’t really unlimited. Likewise, the DVD rental service I use says I get to rent an unlimited number of video per month, but only one at a time. Well, getting only one at a time obviously does limit the number of DVDs I can get. Even if it were possible to get the video, watch the movie, and send it back all in one day and get a new video the next day, I would still be limited by the number of days in the month. In fact, the time it takes for them to mail me a DVD, for me to watch it, then mail it back is at least two days and probably three or four so while it sounds good in advertising to say unlimited, in actuality I can only get about ten videos a month at most.
    People and corporations that love to destroy the environment also love that word. They would say the supply of trees, coal, oil, fish, etc. is unlimited so we didn’t have to worry about using it up. We now know better as fishing grounds that used to be teaming with fish now have little and the oil supply is dwindling while the demand continues to increase. 
    There is really only one are where the word “unlimited” can be used honestly and that is in talking about God, the spiritual worlds and the spiritual beings that live there. A spirit can travel instantly from one location to another hundreds of light years away because a spirit is not restricted by space. Our spirit, like God, lives forever so it’s life is truly unlimited. And the divine knowledge that God shares with those spirits who serve Him is all the knowledge that is possible, so again is unlimited. 
    So, if you like getting things that are “unlimited” the only way you car truly do that is to awaken your soul and develop your spirit with the help of God.

Spiritual Symbols: Mist or Fog

    A mist or fog is often symbolic of the veil that hides the greatest spiritual truths from us: truths that we are not ready to understand or handle wisely. Fog and mist usually occurs in valleys, in the lower places. In this case, lower places represent the lower, more material dimensions of the universe. The mountains often stick out of the mist or fog and represent the spiritual dimensions where the knowledge is revealed. The mountain top can also represent the higher self which knows the truth that is hidden from the lower self, the ego. 
    Being in mist can also be negative, indicating one who is trapped in illusion and falsehood. It can also indicate confusion and indecision about the direction one needs to take or what steps you need to follow. To see the fog lifting or the mist evaporating is symbolic of making progress toward enlightenment and gaining the true knowledge, the Gnosis. 
    To dream that you are in a very thick fog indicates that you are trying to make decisions without sufficient knowledge or intuition. See the fog lift in your dream probably means you will receive intuitive insights to help you make the decision. It is important to remember that a real, physical mist or fog is lifted or dissolved by the heat and light of the sun, just as a spiritual fog is lifted with the help of the spiritual sun.

We Must be Conquerors

    Napoleon Bonaparte, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, and other conquerors were successful partly because they were willing to do whatever was necessary to get the job done and they were not willing to quit when the first attempt failed.
     For those of us who seek to be soldiers of God and enlightened individuals, we need the same attitude if we are to overcome the forces of darkness that aim to stop us and our own egos that fear they will loose power if they let our spiritual self surface. Of course, this is a very different kind of war, so we are not talking about sending thousands of soldiers off to fight and die for us while we get the glory and riches. In this war, we fight to save lives, not spend them, yet we must do it with the attitude that we would rather die than remain slaves of Satan. Only such a strong commitment can succeed. When we are alone though, it is difficult, if not impossible, to have such a strong commitment all the time. 
    Satan and his minions are happy to whisper doubts into our ears to convince us to give up. And, when they doesn’t work, they will go further and make us ill, cause us to loose our job, have a serious accident, or other difficulties to bring more doubt into our heads. That is why it is always best to work as part of a group. Whether it be a spiritual school , a church , or other group devoted to spiritual development, we all need it to give us strength and support when we have moments of doubt and periods when we need to be pushed out of our complacency and back into action.

Troublemakers and Innovators

    Is he an oddball or a unique talent? Is she a rebel or an innovator? Odd, unique, freakish, talented, strange, rebellious, innovative, creative: sometimes it’s hard to tell one from the other. And sometimes there is no difference, just a difference in perspective. 
    The same person who is considered a rebel, a troublemaker, a malcontent, by some is “a creative talent who can think outside the box” to others. Not that everyone who is odd, rebellious, ore freakish is really a unique talent waiting to be discovered, but very often those who are talented, creative and innovative are given those more negative labels instead. If you take a look at our history, you will see that many of the people who have brought about the greatest changes and the greatest advances socially, in religion, in business and in science have often been given one or more of those more negative labels early on in their careers. 
    Unfortunately, it is part of human nature that as we get older, we are less prone to support change, while the young tend to like change with little real analysis of how that change will benefit us. What we really need is a happy medium. We need to be willing to allow change when it is justified and beneficial while learning to reject change that will ultimately be destructive. 
    The problem is how to know the difference. The answer though is surprisingly easy: talk to God and the Beings of Light. They also know what changes are for the good and which ones are not. But if you won’t bother to learn how to communicate with them, you will just be guessing on your own.
