“Universal Power Over Problems”
Problems are thought energies, and, as such, are subject to change when greater energy is applied to them. Problems originate in the thought energies of a person’s mind. Whatever problems you have had, or are currently having, are a direct result of thought energies in your mind.
Far back in time, ancient yogis correctly reasoned and intuitively discerned that there had to be one original energy in the universe from which all other energies came. They also correctly concluded that the greater energy—which they called prana—had power over all of the lesser energies.
The yogis further considered that the human mind level of energy is, therefore, subject to the ultimate energy, or prana. Prana exists within its lesser creations, and therefore is close at hand to exert an influence. This means that if the pranic energy can influence the problem level of a person’s thought energy, the problem will be solved, resolved or, most likely, outgrown. Outgrowing a problem simply means that you will rise to a higher level of consciousness, where these problems can be viewed from a higher vantage point of mind, which will make it more apparent as to what to do to remove them from your life.
Contacting pranic energy comes from contacting God within yourself. God is universal power. As such, the Spirit that is God is—and has—power over prana. Spirit and prana are two sides of the same universal coin, or manifestation of God’s Presence. Contact God and you contact the higher pranic power necessary to have power over your problems.
Keep in mind that all problems are temporary. Some may last for years, but they are still temporary. The only thing that is lasting is God. Why? Because God is the ultimate truth and the ultimate power. When you turn over your problems to God, you turn them over to the ultimate, absolute, most powerful presence in the universe. God’s eternal power is greater than any temporary problem you may be having, or will ever have.
When one is having a problem, the human inclination is to try to intellectualize or “reason it out.” When reason fails and the problem remains, then there definitely should be a turning over of the problem to the higher power of God. Even more preferable is to turn your entire life over to God, so that God’s higher power may reduce the number of problems in your life, by handling things in your life before they even have the opportunity of becoming problems in the first place. Remember that God’s Presence will far outlive, through eternity, any and all temporary problems in your life.
Not only is every problem you may have temporary, the amount of energy that it contains is very small when compared to the energy contained within infinity. Contact the God pranic Presence within you, and you contact infinite energy power. Never for a moment doubt the power of infinite energy to heal your problems. Imagine the vastness of the oceans versus one droplet of water. That does not even begin to compare with the power of infinite energy when brought to bear on the smallness of the problem energy within your mind. Because you are a creation of the infinite, live in the infinite, and have the infinite living in you, all the power of the infinite to heal your problem energy is yours!
When thinking about problem energies in your mind, think of them as darkened energies—black in a clear sky of your mind. Think that the clearness in the sky of your mind is originating from one infinite and eternal light that is both within you and at the same time infinitely surrounding you. Imagine that this light is the true beingness of your spiritual reality, and that in and through this light, you are—on an infinite and eternal level—forever one with God’s Presence.
In your meditation, visualize that the true God-light of your beingness is sublimating and transforming the dark problem energy in your mind into light. This is an inner alchemical transforming process that God’s Presence as a higher light power will do for you. You will begin to see your problem neutralize itself, and/or you may receive intuitive guidance as to how to cooperate with God on a physical level to resolve it.
No doubt about it, when you are in the midst of a problem, it is very hard to declare it an illusion. And yet, ultimately that is what it is! A problem is a passing temporary illusion of reality. By not thinking in this way, you give it a sense of permanency and thus power over you. If, on the other hand, you look at it as an illusion, you diminish its power over you.
Just realize that the only permanent and lasting reality is the Presence of God’s universal power within you, that can evolve you in consciousness far beyond the illusion of any problem. Problems come and go, while reality remains an eternal constant. Identify with God’s reality, and the illusions of a temporary problem will disappear from your life.
