The physical-spiritual connection and delusions

It is so important that one develops a strong spiritual connection to the challenging physical reality one exists in right now on this Earth! Spiritual strength comes from this connection with this resistant substance that challenges us and brings out more of what we are capable spiritually. We need to be focused on the hard reality that this physical substance provides. Spiritually what we put our energy into becomes real to some degree. The problem is that if what we put our energy into spiritually does not align well with the physical reality we are all spiritually connected to, then it takes a lot of extra energy into it to support it! The more delusional a belief, the more energy is wasted supporting that belief and the less one is able to maintain a strong grip on the hard reality we are part of. People who are quite delusional in what they believe spiritually can be quite confident in their beliefs especially if they are part of a group or organization that helps support that delusional belief.

In times of crisis is when beliefs(spiritual theories) get really challenged as to how well they actually work. Those who train their body hard doing exercises that improve the physical-spiritual connection require spiritual theories that really enhance their connection to reality in order to do them and do them safely! Doing spiritual crisis style training helps one to get a stronger spiritual connection to reality so that one will be drawn to spiritual theories that really work well in our reality. Actions and results count a lot in this challenging reality we are part of. Those who actually do the hard work required to become strong and aware spiritually can become really confident spiritually as a result of how well their training works and how well they know they can perform in a crisis situation. People who are delusional can project a lot of confidence and be quite arrogant, but are very reliable when really challenged and the bubble they created to protect their delusion is threatened.
This world is heading toward a crisis, since we are not facing reality well enough in a technological age that demand so much more out of us spiritually than any previous period in our history on this Earth! We need to advance a lot more spiritually so that we develop the spiritual maturity(grip on reality)required to effectively deal with the serious problems that exist in this world. When scientific advancement gets ahead of our spiritual maturity to handle it, we must advance further spiritually or we will be in deep trouble. We really need to develop more rational, reality based spiritual theories that help us to better cope with the intense challenges that now exist on this Earth. We really need to become a lot less delusional spiritually.

Life can bring out the most in you and those one attracts to you!

Even really positive relationships can be quite challenging since one has to invest an awful lot of oneself into them to get the most out of them for both parties involved. . It is the challenging side of life that helps us grow the most spiritually. Challenging relationships that do not work out that well can teach us a lot and help us really appreciate the positive ones we are able to develop later. It is good to have expectations that do not preclude the positive. Unrealistic expectations either too positive or too negative do not serve us well. Having a balanced spiritual view of reality is so important. Our spiritual programming can always be improved on so that we will attract better people into our lives.

It is important to work hard to prepare oneself for the challenges that come with life. Pitfalls do exist that one can be aware of so as to avoid them. Often hard lessons are part of life, we need to learn from them and become deeper spiritually as a result. The people who become the strongest spiritually will have the hardest lessons and learn an awful lot from them. It is positive to be able to handle really big challenges, since this world has so many of them that need to be positively addressed. One can connect with people who have really serious spiritual problems and actually help them to spiritually grow and heal from them. But, one can only help those that are open to being helped. Also one has to be open to being helped oneself spiritually in order to be able to help someone else do so. People with really deep psychological/spiritual problems can be extremely hard to heal. But, that is the challenge that this world we live in presents us with. If we are going to heal the serious underlying spiritual problems that exist in this world we also are going to have to be good at helping people dealing with serious spiritual problems heal, including ourselves. Life is rough and requires a continuous effort to heal from its challenges and become healthier physically and spiritually as a result.

More spiritual maturity/seriousness is needed in today’s very challenging world.

Life is very serious especial these days and it is so important that people mobilize more of their spiritual energy in areas that are serious in nature. Game playing of all kinds predominate in a world that has a lot of spiritual energy that is used for frivolous pursuits. One can train oneself to transform more of ones energy to be serious in nature, so that one can make really positive things not only happen in your life, but in this world that has so many serious problems. One can enjoy being serious because one should get pleasure out of seriously contributing what one has to offer to making this world a better place to exist in. Having too many people making excuses for not utilizing a very serious amount of their energy to overcoming the challenges in their life and the world around them, will not help this world to handle the serious problems that come with this highly technological age we live in. Seriousness comes with maturity, a quality that is badly needed in today’s world.

People who have an arrogant spiritual attitude will tend to get violent when their arrogant energy is challenged! The addictive/repressed type energy that makes people arrogant can be utilized in a positive serious way to enable them to develop a lot further spiritually and to become healthier in body and mind as a result. One develops a lot further spiritually when one develops an attitude that one can always seriously improve spiritually. When one becomes really advance spiritually, due to really intense spiritual-physical training and improved spiritual theories, one does not have to hold on to a self righteous attitude within oneself. One will automatically connect with what is important/serious and healthy spiritually when the energy around you triggers it. Ones intuition when it is working well will tune one into the important/serious spiritual understanding and energy required to ensure that positive spiritual energy is upheld even when challenged. People and circumstance will often be intimidating in a world that has so many serious problems that are rooted in the spiritual.

Addictive delusionary beliefs are like feel good drugs that have harmful side affects

Why is the Earth so messed up spiritually?  When delusionary(fantasy type) beliefs that do not interface well with the physical reality we exist in dominate over rational practical spiritual theories(theories can be questioned and improved on), then the spiritual climate that exists on the Earth will feel the detrimental affects.  In the advanced technological age we now exist in, it is so important that we improve on the spiritual theories we rely on, and cut down on the degree in which we are delusional in our spiritual understandings!  The serious problems that exist in this world require people that have the emotional maturity to handle them!  Some people are not going to let go of their spiritual delusions that come with a lot of the traditional religious/spiritual ideologies that dominate this planet at this time.  I feel they are willing to harm the quality of life they have with these ineffective delusionary beliefs and even die earlier than they should bringing these beliefs with them into their next life.  Effective guiding spiritual theories can enable one to handle reality so much better and to have a strong enough grip on reality to do what it takes to live a healthier lifestyle and to become better at contributing to improving the spiritual state this world is in.

We live in a world were so many people overindulge themselves in so many way and dull their spiritual senses as a result.  When we owns too many possessions or focuses too much on our physical desires we pay a price spiritually.   We have so many things in this world that can take our focus away from the spiritual and harm our ability to get the most out of ourselves.  Spiritual delusions actually are an indulgence that handicaps our spiritual effectiveness, but do tend to have a pleasant drug like affect to them!  The challenging resistant physical reality we exist in with its cycles is not escapable, because it has all the components needed to get the most out of us spiritually!  You will not escape this challenging physical reality by dying,  the cycle of life and death is unending.  As we face continuous challenges in the cycles we go through within this life, so will we face continuous challenges in the cycles we face in future lives. Those who are really strong and aware spiritually are able to see this physical reality in a very positive light and embrace the challenging aspects of it.  We can not transform our planet into a really great place to exist on, without have quite a different spiritual approach than what now predominates here right now.

We need to be guided by spiritual theories that interface really well with the physical reality we exist in right now, so that we will become good at handling the challenges/problems that exist here.  Pain and hardship come with taking on big challenges in life.  The people who achieve the most are those who overcome the most and that do not give up when faced with adversity and discomfort.    We can not transform this world spiritually into a better place to exist on, if we can not tuned into spiritually/emotionally the painful problems that exist here and be thus motivated to do what it takes to find remedies for these problems.   We do not get any spiritual results in this life or any future life if we do not do the required work to earn them!  The spiritual is a uniting force within us that works best when we use all our capabilities.  Working hard will not be very effective if one does not use ones mind really well to figure out(research) what is likely to bring about the best results.

The importance of being grounded in this “insane” world

So many spiritual beliefs(theories)that dominate on this planet tend to tune people out quite a bit spiritually from the very challenging physical reality all that are reading this are a vital part of.  We are incarnated in a physical reality that can really test how well our spiritual beliefs/theories really work.  So many spiritual beliefs/theories tend to sort of slander this physical reality or discredit its value and prefer fantasy type beliefs that envision a better type reality that is easier to handle as an afterlife/existence.  People often have spiritual beliefs or theories that distract or remove their focus away from the important challenges that this world offers us as a means to help us grow further spiritually and give us a serious purpose to help us get the most out of what positive value we can develop and contribute to making this world a better place to exist in.

Delusional spiritual beliefs  can be intoxicating like an addictive drug that puts one into a “feel good” state that has not been earned by doing the hard work in order to make one really healthy spiritually and physically and capable of contributing something of real value to a world full of so many serious problems that are not being properly addressed.  Permissiveness, over indulgence, and the desire for  instant gratification tends to weaken people spiritually and make them less responsible and disciplined and unable to carry a reasonable amount of the burden of transforming this world into a place we can really  be proud to be part of.  So many people desire to escape from this world spiritually rather than directly face their responsibilities to do their part to address the really messed up conditions that exist here that are rooted in the spiritual.

We can not adequately address the serious problems that exist on this planet if we can not handle the emotions and pain connected with them.  The truth is often quite painful, but the pain is worth the price of gaining the spiritual strength that enables one to handle more of the truth and thus enable one to be able to be a lot more constructive at finding and implementing solutions to serious problems existing here on this Earth.  The stronger and more aware one is spiritually the more one can handle the painful/challenging side of life.  Pain can really test how grounded one is spiritually.  The spiritual is powered by emotions, and the people who are the most effective are the ones who can not only handle really intense and difficult emotions, but channel these emotions to make really positive things happen in this world.  When one can really feel the emotions related to a extremely difficult situation or serious problem, one can do a lot spiritually to transform the situation.  Meditating on difficult emotions enables one to not only transform these emotions in a positive way, but impact the source of these emotions in a positive way.  Prayer/meditation can be used to help people in trouble provided one has a good spiritual connection with them and what their challenges are.  But, one can only help people who desire that help and are open to improving on the inadequate spiritual beliefs/theories that contributed to their problems.

One can train oneself to become able to handle really intense spiritual-spiritual states.  Challenging spiritual/emotional states always have an impact on oneself physically due to the stress involved.  Intense physical exercise when combined with intense meditative breathing techniques can condition oneself spiritually and physically to be able to handle extremely difficult(torturous)spiritual states.  People who exercise hard often refer to their exercise sessions as torture.  I have blog posts on the dumbbell swing exercise I do for 6 nonstop minutes that I developed in order to help me handle the most intense and difficult emotional/spiritual states possible without adversely affecting my health!  When one becomes really strong and grounded spiritually it becomes a lot easier to resist harmful temptations and to do what is healthy in ones life when it comes to diet and exercise.  One can develop the ability/intuition to find the diet and nutritional supplements that help you to handle pushing yourself extremely hard physically and spiritually.   One can develop the spiritual theories and mindset that can help one to handle extreme spiritual and physical states and still be able to sense intuitively what one can safely get away with.  One has to be able to become very vigilant(aware) and careful when one is pushing the edge an awful lot spiritually and physically.

Also required in order to handle this challenging physical world we are such a vital part of is the ability to function spiritually in a very low energy state.  In a low energy state the spirit becomes a lot more sensitive and aware spiritually.  In order to have a great deal of spiritual control over oneself, one needs to be able to adjust ones energy to the requirements of the situation you find yourself in.  Also when you push yourself very hard doing things that require a lot of energy one needs to be able to rest and recover which is best done spiritually in a love energy state.  Healing from an illness often requires that one not eat much and lower ones blood sugar quite a bit. In times of crisis one often needs to go from high energy state to low energy state quickly based on the situation.  Sometimes it is best to sort of disappear from the scene and let others take over while you recover and evaluate what you need to do next while in a very aware/sensitive low energy spiritual state .  I use slow intense meditative walking with short quick steps, shoulder movement and rapid breathing to enhance my ability to function in a low energy state spiritually.  I find meditative walking help my stationary type meditation work so much better.  I have blog posts on this site dealing with all forms of meditation.  Here is a link to one of them:   https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

I have developed spiritual theories and techniques through a really intense spiritual focus over a lifetime especially over the last 30 years.  I am almost 65 years old, so it has taken me a lot of time to get where I am at now.  My spiritual theories and techniques have helped me develop an astrology system that has a great deal of spiritual understanding represented in its formulation!

Just “being” is not enough spiritually!

We live in a world that has so many serious problems, we do not need people completely lacking in empathy for the plight of others..  We need people who see the importance of contributing to improving the conditions of the world, not people just content to just exist here.  One can not truly have empathy for others with problems  in this world and not feel compelled to contribute in what ever way one can to improve the conditions that exist in this world.  We can not help everyone, but we should do our part to improve the conditions in this world so that less people are being adversely affected by them.   Those who are satisfied with just “being” and being in a disconnected blissful state, and that are not into doing anything to contribute to making this world a better place, are the ones that devalue the importance of the physical reality we  exist in along with those that are really struggling to deal with the serious problems that exist here.

Emotions power the spiritual, and really spiritually developed people can handle the toughest and most challenging emotions that this world and its problems create.  People who tune out this reality, so that they can just “be”, are the ones that need to have or create a strong spiritual bubble to protect them from the challenging reality that exists outside themselves in a world that to most so obviously has so many serious problems that really need to be addressed!  The more capable one becomes spiritually the more aware one becomes to the problems of this world and those adversely affected by them.  Those who are the best trained spiritually have the least need to have or create a protected bubble to any degree shielding them from reality and those that are so strongly affected by this reality.  A blissful cut-off state tends to strengthen  delusional tendencies and weakens ones ability to handle or relate to the intense pain that comes with the serious problems that  exists in this world, and therefore to see no spiritual need to act in some way to improve the really unhealthy conditions that exist here.  The more one can handle pain, the more of the truth one can handle spiritually.  Solving serious problems requires an ability to tune into the truth spiritually really really  hard.

People who are fighting spiritually to maintain a protective “bubble” to some degree will find the need to cut off any conversation with others that threaten that bubble.  People who are really capable spiritually can handle strong emotions  of all kinds really well and do not cut off conversations with others because they can not handle these intense emotions and the problems often associated with them.  People that have these protective “bubbles” will tend to be controlling and authoritarian in order not to deal with that which challenges their escapist(cut-off) state of being they desire to stay in.  Those who defend the value of those who have protective bubbles will only do so if they have one themselves.  Otherwise they would see how unhealthy it is spiritually for themselves and the others they impact in this world.

Those spiritual people that tend to break the bubbles that make people less effective at improving the conditions that exist in this world will really collide strongly with those who are protective of these bubbles.  But we can not advance further spiritually in this world if we keep feeling a need to protect those spiritually who have these protective bubbles inside themselves which prevent them from seeing more of reality and the need to grow further spiritually in order to handle it better.

Autocratic beliefs prefered over understanding spiritual complexity

The reason our society is so messed up spiritually is that we do not have a high level of understanding of the spiritual here.  It is so much easier to just believe things from autocratic spiritual/religious sources without questioning, than to have to do the intense thinking about which spiritual theories would work the best at focusing our attention and efforts on the serious problems(hunger/malnutrition, violence, abuse, ignorance,  etc.) that exist in this world.  I strongly believe that the spiritual theories that enable us to handle the most intense and often painful challenges of life in a positive way are the ones that will be closest to the truth.  Having extremely challenging and effective spiritual-physical training techniques is needed to build up ones ability to handle life’s challenges at their most intense.  One can not push oneself extremely hard if one is lock into spiritual  beliefs that focus ones attention away from the indispensable value of physical reality we now exist in to our spirit’s well being.  Life is cyclic and we tend to be victims of habit.  In order to improve ourselves and the world around us we must stop repeating the same cycles over and over again, but make the necessary tough spiritual changes that ensure we have better cycles in the future and by so doing also contribute to enhancing the cycles that happen on a bigger scale in the reality us!

Delusions are very prevalent in this world.  We all are deluded to some degree in that no one is going to have a complete grip on what is true.  When one does not understand the spiritual very well, one can easily mistake spiritual phenomena for physical phenomena which can contribute to mental problems and harmful delusions.  Being weak spiritually due to ineffective spiritual theories/beliefs along with the misinterpretation of reality that come with them, can lead to irrational behavior often triggered by spiritual phenomena one is unable to understand or appropriately deal with.  Not all spiritual energy or influences are positive, just like not all people one connects with are a positive influence on you spiritually.  Often people who are psychic(extra sensitive in some way spiritually)will hear voices or have visions.  These voices or visions can get people into trouble if they are not positive in nature and they do not clearly understand their spiritual(non-material)nature!  Most people when they have dreams in their sleep do not mistake these dreams for things they experience in their waking reality.  Dreams are very spiritual in nature.  For people who do not clearly recognize the difference between the dream/spiritual consciousness and waking physical consciousness, reality can be misread with harmful consequences resulting in their lives.

People with mental illness are extremes, but we all are deluded to some degree in how well we read the reality we exist in and separate clearly that which is spiritual in nature from that which is physical.  Often people with strong delusions have an arrogant disregard for the value of the physical side of reality they live in right now, and the need to listen to others that have a more reliable grip on what is happening in it.  Being too locked inside oneself and not getting enough outside feedback is a good way to become delusional about the reality one exists in.  One can not take the physical reality we exist in lightly or those that can help one to get a better grip on it.  Having an overly permissive view of reality can lead to one to not being critical enough as to what is real and what is not as to what is really happening in ones life and what is happening in the very important bigger world around you.

A really clear separation does not always occur between the spiritual and the physical, since spiritual phenomena can be visual at times and appear to be physical.  Those who are well tuned in spiritually as a result of their training and the spiritual theories they accept will sense the difference.  Those are out of balance spiritually will tend to believe things  about the physical world around them without enough serious proof of their validity.  People often get a distorted view of reality that overly demonizes certain sections of our society and is too ready to think the worst of them.  Conspiracy theories are always being created by unreliable sources and then get a life of themselves on the spiritual level.  Beliefs do tend to manifest themselves on the spiritual level and often can be intoxicating to those who are susceptible to them due to their lack of proper spiritual attunement/balance.

All kinds of strange beliefs exist that can distract one from this challenging physical reality we exist in here as spirits.  All beliefs that discredit our responsibility for the state our physical world is in, and that it is up to us to work hard to improve the condition it is in, will tend to disconnect us from reality and thus are harmful.  A belief in aliens that come in UFO’s and have impacted our world positively in the past or will so in the future is one of these distracting beliefs that harm our ability to value and get the most out of ourselves so we can fix the serious problems that exist in this world.  People can readily misinterpret visual spiritual phenomena in a way to support what they really desire to believe..  Human being have done amazing things in the past and can do really amazing things in the future with out the aid of aliens coming on UFO’s from places beyond this Earth.   Most spirits may have had past lives on places other than this Earth, but once they are biologically part of this Earth through birth here, they are no longer alien!

This challenging physical reality we now exist in is where we prove how good our spiritual beliefs and techniques really are.  We prove our spiritual capabilities by how well we are able to contribute what we have of value to making this challenging physical world we exist in a better(more healthy)place to exist in.  How well we perform in this life will directly transfer to how well we are able to perform in the challenging lives we have in the future.

The need for balance in ones spiritual training

One can do a really high energy aerobic exercise with the focus on breathing more than required so that an intense meditative/spiritual state becomes part of the exercise. An aerobic exercise with an upper body emphasis works best, in which one breaths extra rapidly, and does neck/head movements that massage the neck enabling the brain to get extra blood flow so that one can push harder than one normally can do. My barbarian dumbbell swing exercise in which I swing the 20 lb dumbbell with two hands from between my legs to over and behind my head does a good job at that. I do bend my arms a little using my arms a lot to lift the dumbbell. I find one can put oneself into an extremely intense and difficult spiritual/physical doing this. I breath in and out 6 to 8 times with each swing and do this for 8 minutes very intensely.I move my head down when lifting the dumbbell (over head) and move my head down when bringing the dumbbell down, massaging my neck and bringing more blood to the brain! I also open and close my mouth intensely while breathing without closing on the teeth which helps to release tension in that area of the head and the head in general.I use to do it longer with less intensity, but as I got more fit, the intensity went up and the duration went down. Quieting the mind during a good portion of this exercise will help one to better increase its intensity while being careful to read your body so you do not do anything to hurt/injure yourself. The more intense you exercise the more careful one needs to be!! One can search for the right exercise for you that fits the same requirements as the dumbbell swing exercise does for me. Studies are showing that really intense cardiovascular exercise of more intensity and shorter duration can be very effective provided one is fit enough to do them. So one has to start with less intensity, more duration and a lighter dumbbell, and gradually increase the the intensity as you get more fit, while shortening the duration and finding the best dumbbell weight for your needs. This high energy exercise will build up your individual spiritual energy strength. In my astrology system the individually focused connections to the top of the birth chart get stronger when you do this type of exercise.
One needs a balance between a really high energy meditative exercise like the one mentioned above along with a slow meditative exercise that slows down ones energy so as to develop more sensitivity and awareness of the universal spiritual energy that exists beyond ones individual self. I developed the meditative walk for that reason. One walks with the legs spread a little farther apart than normal with short steps while breathing in with one step and out with the next. You look upward to a degree while massaging your neck by raising your shoulders higher than one would do in a normal walk. As mentioned in above paragraph the massaging of the neck by ones shoulders brings more blood flow to the head helping one to push oneself harder than one could normally do. One can increase the intensity of this exercise by shortening ones steps even more and by breathing in and out with each step, but this is a really advanced technique when done well and one must work up to it. It can takes years to get really good at this. When doing this exercise one should try to quiet the mind a good portion of the time, since one can focus harder and reach a stronger spiritual state when doing this. One can also focus on the side to side motion and how carefully one moves ones feet when doing this exercise. In my astrology system the universally(beyond ones individual self) connections to the bottom of the birth chart are strengthened by this exercise.
The physical/spiritual health gotten from doing both exercises is needed in order to create the degree of spiritual/physical oneness that is required in order to gain a stronger connection to reality/God so one will be better able to contribute positively spiritually and physically to this physical world one now exists in. One does best to have this balance between handling high and low energy states. Being overly hyper active or overly complacent or quiet/subdued and sensitive will limits ones effectiveness and ability to be in control of oneself spiritually. Being out of control or ineffective spiritually can lead to a lot of serious problems in ones life. This world has a lot of problems rooted in the spiritual that are the result of people being out of control or ineffective spiritually. Being effective spiritually involves handling ones emotions and desires well, so that one can better control and direct ones actions and communications toward positive results in this world.
In order to handle really intense and challenging exercise one has to have spiritual beliefs that enable one to handle the very difficult(can feel quite torturous) spiritual/physical states these exercises create. One needs to develop the ability to put all of ones spiritual focus into the present and not have escapist type spiritual beliefs sabotaging this effort. I have blogs on spiritual beliefs I designed to help one deal with the challenging type spiritual exercises and the spiritual state and the heavy dose of reality they connect one with. The truth often is painful, and ones ability to be able to handle more of the challenging/painful side of life helps one to better connect with more of what is true spiritually, and also to those who are dealing with the serious problems of the world that only can be properly dealt with by have a closer connect to reality and the often painful truths that come with it!! Having a good diet with nutritional supplements also helps one to handle a really challenging spiritual/physical training program!

It is up to the inhabitants of this planet to make a positive difference here!

So often people look for or expect help from the “outside” to somehow change the conditions on this planet for them or provide them with a better place to exist in after they die. But, why should they deserve a better place to exist in if they are not willing to do the really hard work required in order to make the changes required in order to improve the conditions they now have in their life as individuals and as part of a bigger society?
What has happened in the past or what people want to believe happened in the past has a strong impact on what people expect to happen in the future and how it will come about. People who believe most of humanities past achievements especially in ancient times were mainly the result of the help of “ancient astronauts” or that only certain “special” individuals born with a “special” connection with God have provided us regular human inhabitants of this Earth with special knowledge to help us understand how things work spiritually, will tend not to be so willing to do the work required to achieve amazing things themselves in order to make a real difference in the physical/spiritual knowledge/conditions that exist on this planet.
Our spiritual progress on this planet is being held back by “autocratic type” spiritual beliefs from “special” sources that supposively give us the “Truth” that can not be questioned or improved on. This sets up a spiritual status quo that is very hard to change on this planet, and since the spiritual underlies everything, really limits what progress we can make on this planet. And we do need to progress a lot further on this planet if we are to advert quite negative consequences in its future. Amazing things may have been achieve by ancient civilizations, but these advance civilizations of the past did not survive in their advanced state. They may have been as advanced spiritually as we are now, but that may have not been good enough spiritually to ensure their survival in an advanced state. I believe the amazing things achieved by these ancient civilizations(pyramids etc., that scientists have a hard time figuring out) were made by the native inhabitants that existed there, without any need for outside intervention! I believe human being have been very capable for quite some time on this planet.
I believe we, the individual spirits that are incarnated on this Earth, are the prime spiritual forces that are responsible for creating the conditions that exist here. Our Universe has a universal spirit that underlies it and provides it with the necessary degree of unity required for it to function adequately. God, the universal spirit, just makes sure that the challenging physical reality we exist in is able to serve us well provided we do the required work to understand it and to perform well in it! God makes us earn whatever results we achieve here.
I feel that we, the incarnated inhabitants of this planet, are the ones with the spiritual power here. That any positive change that occurs here will be up to us. I believe God will only help those who do the required work to deserve/earn God’s help. I see God as existing in order for us to have a physical reality that enables us to exist. That if individual spirits like us did not exist, God would not exist. That a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship exists with each requiring each other in order to exist and perform their important roles.
The main point I am trying to make is that it is up to us and our efforts individually and collectively to make a positive difference on this planet physically and spiritually. We do not need to depend on outside forces to do it for us. We do need to learn more of how this universe functions both physically and spiritually and do the hard work required to tune into the Universal Spirit(God)in order to help us do this.

Religious Freedom and my right to make a living in the area of my expertise

My focus is very much in the spiritual area in everything I do.  I am “differently abled” in a way that make me able to be very creative in the spiritual area.  My astrology system, along with my dumbbell swing(similar to Barbarian swings), my meditative walking,  and other meditative exercises/techniques I have developed and use are all spiritual in their focus.  To me I see no difference between the word “spiritual” and the word “religious”.   They both focus in the same area!   Often people who use astrology or psychic ability have to claim it to be for entertainment purposes only in order to protect themselves legally.  It is true that often entertainment can have quite a positive spiritual impact.  But, the type of spiritual advice I give (with the aid of my astrology system at times)can be very serious and effective at times provided the person is open to my spiritual approach which is very much focused on helping individuals improve on their spiritual  ideas/programming so as to be best able to handle the intense challenges/problems they face and this world faces.  All my spiritual/religious beliefs/ideas I have accepted or have developed are of the type designed to maximizes an individual’s ability to better handle reality at its most intense.  I believe the spiritual/religious beliefs that work the best in helping us perform in our current very challenging reality we exist in will be the ones closest to the truth.

My spiritual focus is very much oriented toward improving the spiritual/physical conditions that exist in this world, so I have a very strong focus on  causes that work toward that goal.  So that is why I am part of the “Starfish Foundation” and put a lot of my spiritual and other energy into it.  People of other religions who are open to further improving on their spiritual beliefs will get along well with me.  Those who feel no need to always be working on trying to improve spiritually through improving on their practices/training and beliefs will be incompatible with me.  I need to work with people who sincerely are always looking for ways to improve on how they function and how effective they can contribute in the area they are capable in.  My focus on spiritual development is important since spiritual change must first start in the individual before positive change can be made spiritually collectively in this world.  The spiritual “status quo” is the enemy of positive spiritual change and to being able to improve on our way of handling the serious problems in the world that are rooted in the spiritual and very much impacted by the spiritual/emotional maturity/development of the individual people that compose our collective society.

I feel I represent someone who really tests how much the belief in Religious Freedom is really valued in the United States of America, and in other countries that claim a similar belief.  I have the right to make a living in the area I am good at even though I am so unique compared to most other people when it comes to my capabilities.  We need to start working harder in this country in using more of the human resources we have available.  Uniquely/”differently abled” individuals should be prized not discouraged or put in positions where they have no constructive ways to develop and contribute to this world.  We live in a society that often likes to overly “blame the victim” for its own inadequacies.  Often the people in leadership blame those that are not that capable of helping themselves rather than showing true leadership and working to change the conditions that they are able to, that are holding people back from living in a more responsible an.d productive way.  We can transform this world into a better place to exist in spiritually, and we can make a lot better use of our human resources.  We need to change the spiritual state of this world, so that we have a spiritual environment here that create a higher percentage of spiritually/emotionally healthy individuals and less spiritually/emotionally unhealthy criminal types.
