What Is the Holy Spirit

What Is the Holy Spirit and How Can I Hear His Voice?

 

The Holy Spirit can be referred to as the still, small voice within the mind or the intuition that guides us. It’s like a presence that we can sense whenever we get still enough to tune in and listen inwardly.

You need the Holy Spirit’s help to see things as they are, to see clearly without projection, judgment, and interpretation. As soon as the ego judges somebody else as lacking, it always compares and tells you, “Well, you are not that way; you are beyond that.” This promotes inequality, division, and separation. You need to ask the Holy Spirit to start cleaning the filter you are seeing through because that is the only hope you have of truly not judging. Once you tap into that help, it is delightful. Every moment without a filter is delightful. But if there is a concept or a judgment involved, then it is better to just pause, introspect, and become aware of what that filter is. You can cultivate a willingness to question every value and every concept you hold. When you catch yourself judging or thinking that you know something, I advise you to exercise what I call, “stop, drop, and roll.” You first pause your running thoughts and your reactions; you stop! And second, you exercise your willingness to drop it. And third, you roll with the Spirit’s guidance. When your filter starts clearing.

When your filter starts clearing and the more intuitive and less judging you become, the more you reap the emotional benefits. You can tell by how you feel: you’re more stable, you’re calmer, and this is how you know you’re headed in the right direction. This develops into acceptance and a receptive mind, an open mind, a mind that doesn’t “already know.” Then the miracle within can happen.

The world encourages opinions; that’s normal, but opinions block the experience of peace. Opinions do not have anything to do with truth or reality. The “I-don’t-know” state is humble.

In the Zen tradition, it is called beginner’s mind. It is a great experience to wake up every day and feel like you don’t know anything. It’s a beautiful feeling to not have an opinion but to be open to be shown.

 

This Moment Is Your Miracle brings you tools to reverse all fearful thoughts and beliefs. Using these tools makes it possible to find the complete sense of freedom and peace you’ve always been yearning for.

New video by Tom Campbell on YouTube

The MBT QM Experiments: What are the Issues, What is the Significance?
Tom Campbell answers the most pressing questions regarding his experiments. Richard Feynman, one of the great theoretical physicists said, “Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. “Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.” I cannot say that Tom Campbell’s MBT quantum mechanics experiments are undisciplined, perhaps they are irreverent, but they are certainly original. His approach to deriving quantum mechanics from first principles, thus explaining the “why” of it as well as the computational "how", challenges current beliefs of quantum physics. Understanding (or not) what quantum physics implies about the nature of reality reminds us of another quote attributed to Richard Feynman: “Shut up and calculate”, which suggests that while the math of quantum mechanics is good at delivering the right answers, it offers no insight whatsoever into the seemingly unfathomable mystery of a quantum reality. Tom Campbell’s MBT theory is taking the first step toward solving that mystery. Campbell challenges the traditional assumption that entanglement between particles and detectors somehow preserves the which-way information, even though the math dutifully produces the right answer. In this video, Campbell discusses the connection between math and physical reality, and explains why computing the right answer does not necessarily imply that one has the correct understanding. At present, quantum mechanics is a computational science, it is logical only in the sense that QM math is self-consistent. It is decidedly not logical in the sense that all other basic sciences are logical – that it is derivable from well understood first principles. Campbell plans to change that by deriving quantum theory from the first principles of MBT consciousness theory – an idea that seems plausible once one understands that consciousness is fundamental while all else is derived therefrom. From the research Tom and his colleagues have conducted, it appears there are no experiments that define what the facts really are on this particular disagreement about the collection of which-way information. That is why the experiments Tom has designed need to be conducted – to establish the truth. Theory is nothing but conjecture until an experiment is conducted to confirm or deny it. Campbell, in this video freely discusses his own uncertainty, explaining that he does not have all the answers and could be working from an incorrect assumption. Certainty is not the nature of good science, or good scientists. It is possible that conducting these experiments may solve the deep mystery Feynman knew still existed at the root quantum mechanics. We shall see.

Unconditional Gratitude – radio conversation with Marc Courtenay Nov. 15, 2018

Marc Courtenay

Tomorrow  November 15, 2018 at 8:30 AM (Pacific Time) the topic of conversation will be “Unconditional Gratitude” when I will again be the guest on Marc Courtenay’s radio show “Finding Happiness and Good Health in Today’s Word” on (KCUP-1230 AM and BOSS 100.7 FM Radio in Newport, Oregon) and streaming on the web. You can listen live or via the archives of Marc’s shows after the show. We’ll talk about how to practice gratitude that isn’t contingent on specific circumstances, and how this helps us heal the gap we imagine between true Peace and our (failed) expectations of what we think the world should deliver to us.  We’ll “turn it around” – to borrow from Byron Katie’s sage advice – and share ways to train our minds to see that real abundance (our unchanging identity) is for giving away, and not something we need to acquire or worry about losing. Here are some possible questions we may explore:

  • How can we give what we don’t (believe we) have?
  • When is giving the same as receiving?
  • When is giving different from receiving?
  • How are gratitude and patience related in truth?
  • Why do we resist and actually sabotage peace by making conditions and demands of circumstances … and how do we remedy that?

How to Find Love Within

"All we need to do is go within to find the answer of love." 
~
David Hoffmeister in his book This Moment is Your Miracle

Enjoy this excerpt from This Moment is Your Miracle in which renowned A Course in Miracles teacher David Hoffmeister shares about how to find love within:

There is an answer that is so deep that it can bring truth and healing to everyone and to this whole world. We have been searching for it everywhere, except in the only place we could truly find it: within. This moment extends all the way to eternity. It is the now that extends peacefully and is forever and ever. It is infinite happiness without end, without limit. It is untouched by fear, guilt, or suffering of any kind. It is untouched by anything but love. There is so much appreciation when experiencing something for the first time. There is no comparison. For in the ever-unfolding now, we are always brand new. We can just bask in it, fully merge with it. There are no past references to it, for it doesn’t fit on the timeline. It’s just a happy sense of soaring way beyond time and space, like an ongoing meditation. This ever-present miracle of now is our doorway within. It is our doorway Home. It is an experience of something ever-new. It’s a happy feeling, one that makes you want to sing to the world. It’s very beautiful and very simple too. It’s having the allowance to merge when you are watching a flower, a butterfly, or a bird singing in the tree; it’s a contentment like, “Ah yes, thank you; let me be whole.”

This is what Saint Francis was talking about: just communing. The allowance that everything is perfect. We can really allow ourselves to smell the roses. It is through the doorway of the present moment that we are truly able to hear the deep messages of love coming from within. They are boundless and eternal, for the voice of the inner guide is always speaking to us of our true identity and of our oneness with everyone and everything. But in order to hear it, we need to walk through the doorway and invite this deeply loving guide into our minds and lives. David Hoffmeister, This Moment is Your Miracle (TMIYM)
