It was a sunny afternoon. The atmosphere felt pretty heavy due to the general human vibration of a continuous “diet” of worries, anxieties and stresses of the “modern” life. Despite that heaviness, Nature was very welcoming with its colorful beauty and its therapeutic scents in the park where Mathias, the wise tree; resides.
Raysha and Ananda wanted to speak with Mathias, but Raysha wasn’t able to hear him. Then, Raysha heard a voice: “ Wait. I will be right there soon,” and along with that voice she had a vision of beings of light reunited in a circle. It seemed like a council. A being of light flew to the middle of the circle to share something to the group, and then went back to his former place while another being of light shared in the middle of the circle in turn.
Mathias: “Welcome friends! I was in a council. Mathias feels very refreshed after one of those.”
Ananda: A council? What for?
Mathias: To maintain the balance on Earth. Some people are only destroying some parts of the Earth.
Ananda: Who is the leader of that council?
Mathias: Everyone shares.
Ananda: oh! No leader… interesting. That is unheard of in our society of human beings…I have a question related to that friend….
I have realized that God is conceived as a human idea only, which comes from the way that we have created this society. There is a government and there are people in a hierarchy. There is a leader and followers underneath. It seems to me that humans have arranged the same idea for the Divine. There is God and other “governors” underneath with their representatives on Earth…. Angels, archangels, saints, etc. Isn’t this correct?
Mathias: Friend; Mathias just came from a council and you asked if there was someone who was the leader. Mathias told you that it was a sharing. That is what you mean in your question?
Ananda: I refer to the human idiosyncrasy. God is the king, the father. He is the one who decides and manages things and underneath him there are people who “represent” him. A human form to follow. The point here is not about the existence of God. That is not the point. I am just referring to our human vision towards that which only projects a belief based on what is known to humans.
Mathias: About that human vision, you could speak better than Mathias.
Mathias will only say that the one which you call God is a fantastic being.
Ananda: A being….
Mathias: Fantastic being, my friend!
Ananda: But now, there is no being which I call God.
Mathias: The way you conceived God before and the way you conceive God now has changed…only in your mind and your heart; but essentially it remains the same.
Ananda: That is an interesting answer. Mathias does not truly answer my question but Mathias allows me to experience and open myself to discover through my own changes.
You let me go with my ideas of the moment, and even though I may have asked the same question before in a different way, your answer is not the same now… I could see that an authoritative answer such as : “God is this” will only limit my own discovery; then I could say that God is a discovery…
Mathias: Which you will discover according to your location…
Mathias: The way your consciousness is situated to observe. Your perception goes according to that.
There is a painting. Many people will look at it in a different way according to their location.
Ananda: Then, even though those are different locations, none of them is wrong… but humans are always trying to convince others about the righteousness of their own perceptions, their own locations.
Mathias: Why Mathias should try to change you? To beautify you but not to change you.
Ananda: Mathias you helped me to know myself as a being…
Mathias: Mathias only helped with a snip here and a snip there to beautify that small growing plant who is now a shrub. Mathias did not change your essence.
Ananda: Interesting way that you have to interact. It is definitely not human…
Mathias: Which is neither good nor bad, only different…
Ananda: yes… only different, my friend!
Sharing a very interesting article written by Satinder Bhalla. It is about those mental conceptual structures that we use as supports and call them “truth.”
We are used to look at life from that perspective. Because it is only one perspective, our “unlimited vision” is hindered.
As we are finding out, it is important to become open to different points of view, different visions for that will give us a greater “picture” of what is. Then, through many viewpoints, we could clear the corrosion in our minds, that is our dogmatic way of looking at things which creates a mental block which does not allow us to go over our own mental limits.
Spirituality resembles in this as being like a well-trained athlete. Life is training us. We are finding our limits through this training, our mental limits; that is. Until we “open up” we will be stuck in that position. Stagnation brings a “bad” smell….Everything moves, changes, flows in harmony.. that is…remains alive… 🙂
Enjoy the training!

Nothing has meaning except the meaning we give to it.
Nothing has any meaning except what is written on our walls of the Palace of Possibilities.
What do we do when we find something about which nothing is written on those walls? How can we make sense when the walls are empty on the subject?
Simple. We invent a meaning that most closely matches the “truth” that is already written on our walls.
That “meaning” is probably fictitious, of course, but that does not prevent us from doing so. It is a human need to make sense of the world around us and we always do so to fit our beliefs.
When children do this, we call that fantasy. But when adults, do it, we call that reality.
If there is no reference to follow, we simply create it, using what is already written on our walls, a meaning that could fit.
What happens when new information is in direct opposition to what is already in those walls? Here, we introduce our final “trick.” It is an internal dialogue which provides instant objection to any new information that may conflict with our “truth” about the existing world.
What is written on your walls is there to help you navigate a world that is often uncertain.
It helps you make “smart” decisions. It helps you to avoid danger and reinforces your view of what is valuable in this world. … It is there to keep you safe.
We rely on the support of our “truths” much stronger than what we think, and that becomes more obvious when we are directly challenged.
A first-class way to challenge the scripture on the walls of someone, is by the use of affirmations.
This technique has been around for decades as a tool for personal improvement. From the most popular assumptions of “positive thinking”, “mind over matter”, or “what you think is what you are.”
In general, a goal is decided; something like losing weight, earning more money, or anything else you can think of, and then we design a statement that assumes that your goal has become a reality.
If properly designed, an affirmation enters into direct conflict with the Scripture on your walls. It asserts a reality that not only is not still true, but also extends the limits of your belief about what is possible. More importantly, it also produces new “tricks,” which bring valuable information about your emotional structure.
The trick is to overcome the old “tricks”, to enter a new reality.
