When Enough People Find a Spiritual Epiphany, Will Heaven Come?

An old theory exists called the “The 100th Monkey Theory.” Basically, the Hundredth Monkey phenomenon is the purported paranormal spurt in a learning curve that happens when enough individuals share the same idea. If large enough numbers of people think, or learn the same thing, a kind of nonlinear process occurs where everyone learns it everywhere else, even without direct exposure. Or so the theory goes. Ideas are in the ethers, as it were, and are picked up by a psychic osmosis.

So, if this theory stands, then if enough people are seeking spiritual truth, then eventually the entire world will also find it. Will this be what Jesus called heaven on earth? And is this what the spiritual speed-up is all about?

(An Aside: I have totally quit thinking about dieting, obviously, and began to focus on what is important, and interestingly enough, the less time I think about food, the better I do. Just an FYI for the thousands who are worrying that I might not reach my goal. I do have a rigorous yoga workout tomorrow morning and a long hike on Saturday scheduled. Maybe the combination of the two will be enough to reach my intended goal of 12 pounds. We’ll see.)

Maybe if enough people lose weight, we’ll all lose weight. I like that idea. You know the idea of a circuitous route to our world’s worst problems are actually in this 100th monkey theory. It’s all around us every day.

Just 10 years ago, it would have been completely taboo for a country singer to be involved in a human rights campaign or a HIV-related fundraiser. But now the taboo has been lifted by a community of like-minded thinkers who have raised the awareness of many. These particular people just happen to be the writers and the producers of films and television shows that are infiltrating the smaller minds of people who would never be exposed to things like interracial marriage, gay rights, GLBT families, and even things like stem cell research. All of these things were looked at as Satanic in years past. But now we look at all of them as something to be moving toward in the near future.

I was surprised to see that marijuana was on the platform of so many states’ ballots. I don’t know why I was so surprised. I know many people who use marijuana illegally. I know plenty more who use alcohol in a worse way. Why not legalize pot and get some of this crime off of the streets and protect the users from tainted and possibly fatal drugs, when the government could be regulating it? In a world where everything this is copacetic, nothing really seems impossible to the mind that believes all things are in divine order and in balance.

I am reminded of the story in the bible where Peter has a dream about food being placed before him that is not in the Jewish Law. Peter questions God about being able to eat it. God say something like, “All creatures are lawful.” I can’t remember the exact scripture and don’t feel like looking it up. I’m sure there are bible scholars saying…. GEEZ, really. But, the gist is: That God wanted Peter to preach to the Gentiles. He used the idea that the law was created to keep the children safe from impurity. But the law is meant for children. Not adults in spirit. So, can we live by the dictums created by lawgivers who were trying to protect us from things we couldn’t see? The problem is that we still have to protect the children. I suppose that is why so many religions exist today.

I remember a time in my personal life when I thought homosexuality was a sin. I am thankful for that thought, because it kept me from practicing this belief during a time in NYC when AIDS was being spread rampantly and with knowledge. I probably would be dead right now, had I not been so caught up in the belief that I was a sinner. This law was a very high fence to keep me from harm and death. I’m a better person to have grown up through that law and see a bigger picture now—to see God all in All.

If you haven’t read “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle, definitely give it a read. It’s a beautiful book that will change your way of thinking.

Essential Tools for a Creative New Year

Everyone seems to want to put the past year behind him/her and begin the New Year with gusto and a set of new goals. In past years, I would take the last week of December and the first week of January off, sit on the beach and write in a journal, reflecting on the desire for change and praying about what I would like to create in my life for the next year.

With this prayer I would set intentions. The dictionary defines intention as “an aim or a plan.” I think that is exactly what our subconscious needs to move us forward and bring us powerful energy from the ethers. Even the Christian and Jewish Bible says in Proverbs 29:18 that “People without a vision will perish!”

I believe God understands the nature of human brains. To plan in our minds and then to create after we have come up with a solid plan is the sign of a good builder. This is a significant way to begin anything, even an idea for a new business or an new outlook on life. Start with a great blueprint.

Everything in life takes a good plan in mind to express in your life as solid matter.

Vision boards are a good way to express dreams or desires for a new way of living. To create a vision board, simply find an old corkboard or a blank poster board. What I do is cut out pictures from magazines that represent my dreams. If I can’t find a picture, I will look on the Internet for one or type out the word in a bold font and print it out to go somewhere on the board. Basically, just begin a large collage of the pictures and words you want to manifest in the near future.

Then place the vision board somewhere prominent in your bedroom, so that you can see it every day. I would make it a point to say a prayer or meditate by the vision board everyday.

For instance, before my last book was ever published, I made a vision board of the mock-up cover and all the places I wanted to travel with the book. I put a picture of Oprah on it. Pictures of New York and Los Angeles bookstores where prominently spaced in the center. A copy of my first check from the book was also on the vision board to represent prosperity. I made a check out for a million dollars and put it on the vision board. All these things are perfectly fine to dream about.

So what, if all of the dreams don’t come true. At least you are moving forward with your vision and your dream. At one point about a year after the book was published, it was time to take down that board and replace it with a new vision of what my next plan was. I prayerfully asked what my next move would be. And set out to make plans to be prosperous mind, body and spirit as God led me.

You see, I don’t look at monetary reciprocity as the only means of success. Sometimes, you just have to do what’s on your heart and trust that the money will follow. This blog, for instance, is purely a vision from my heart. I write every day with no expectation of finance. I came up with the idea of “FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU” and I feel like a business will be created around that name. I’m not sure exactly what that is. It may be a set of books, workbooks, vision boards, etc. Who knows, really?

I feel God led me to write, and this is what I am to do today. I have been doing this for almost two years with only one person sending me $25 last week as a thank you present. The money was truly unexpected and a pleasant surprise. Someone from my church sent the money as a tithe from her heart because she said that the blog helped her. That thought gave me the idea to incorporate the name into a ministry or a business. You must open your arms to prosperity and the opportunities for prosperity for money to flow in your life.

See if you can take one step forward today in creating your new dream.
