“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” – The Bible (John 1:1, NIV)
That quote from The Bible has inspired many, including me, to wonder “what is the Word that is God”? That question has been like a kōan for me, like “ What is the sound of one hand clapping?” Searching for that “Word” has led me to many spiritual teachings and the Unified Field.
We looked at the main attributes of the Divine last week and the 25 qualities of the Unified Field, and we can draw the conclusion that these are the Words that are God. Though still there is the Divine Mystery of what is “THE Word?”
Esther and Jerry Hicks have discovered in their work with the Teachings of Abraham, that our Source, God, is Vibration, and when we are aligned with this Vibration of our Creator we feel Good. When we feel Good, we attract our Good. Could it be this simple? I believe it is.
So we may draw the conclusion that the “ Word” is Vibration. Movement and Frequencies are Vibrations. Magnetic resonance is a Vibration. The permutations of Frequencies, Magnetism and Vibrations are infinite as our Source, God, is infinite. This is why a favorite melody or song can lift us to a higher state of being. Many spiritual traditions have studied and learned about specific sound Vibrations that heal through the human energy fields: Tibetan Bells, crystal bowls, tuning forks, pianos, guitars and flutes, to name a few. Vibration.
How do these concepts relate to Us and our Lives? Appreciation, Gratitude and Thankfulness are Vibrations that align us with our Divine Source. These qualities are the same Frequency or Vibration as Love. Since Love is the most potent Vibration of Life, we can feel aligned with God through the practice of Appreciation.
I love the Hicks’ expression of having a “rampage of Appreciation.” Often the word “rampage” might be used in a more negative connotation. In my own life, rampages of Appreciation have lifted me out of some very difficult circumstances. One Word of Love and Appreciation can turn us to the direction of our Good.
As you work with your own Spiritual Prosperity, find songs, music, symbols, movements, foods, activities, Art, books or movies that never fail to uplift you with your own unique preferences. Included here is one song that always uplifts me and makes me appreciate my life, The Divine and nature: Morning Has Broken, by Cat Stevens. My favorite lyrics are, “Praise for them springing fresh from the Word,” and “…Eden saw play.” Yes, it is time for us to play.
Appreciate, Love, Sing, Dance or Play. You will be aligned with your Creator and attract your Good.
Flowers never fail to uplift me. Today the photos are of cultivated and wild flowers in Idaho and Wyoming. Petunias are very popular in this part of the world. Their fragrance is so sweet and vivid colors are stunning. The wild ones here are growing at 9,600 feet by God’s Grace. So lovely.
