How we envision God affects our spiritual effectiveness on this Earth

I feel as one become more tuned in spiritually how you picture God will change. We need to feel more empowered spiritually in this world in order to become more responsible here for the spiritual state this world is in! The vision of an all powerful autocratic God just does not help us advance enough further spiritually which we badly need to do in order to positively transform a world that badly need to be! We have to see us as the front line spirits that have an awful lot of impact on the world we exist in and then develop ourselves to perform our role better! We have to see our physical universe as being very vital to us spiritually in order to put enough of our spiritual energy into improving the part of this universe we now exist in! Every united component of our reality has a spirit and so the physical universe as a whole must have one. I believe we as advanced individual spirits must nurture both the physical world we live in and the spirit that maintains it in order to make things work well spiritually here. But, we can only properly nurture that which we really appreciate the value of and that we understand really well!

Being individual front line spirits we are able to use the unique abilities we can develop spiritually to make quite a difference in the universe we are part of! Being incarnated in a physical body in a challenging physical world enables us to develop really great guiding spiritual theories and training techniques that can greatly increase our spiritual capabilities to impact the universe we are part of. When we make ourselves a lot less important in this world by making God play too strong a role we really weaken our spiritual effectiveness. When God is envisioned as so powerful that only God is considered eternal, this really weakens us! But, when we see us as eternal advanced individual spirits that play an extremely important role in how our universe and its spirit(God) functions, we really empower ourselves and enable us to value the need to make the effort to develop further so that we can play this vital role. We have made such advances in recent centuries in the areas of science and technology in this world and need to now do the same in the spiritual area. We can not do this if we do not see how much we are capable of spiritually and belittle the power we have in this universe! We can do really amazing things spiritually in this challenging physical world when we function as advanced individual spirits with the collective oneness that can come from getting a lot more out of ourselves spiritually as separate advanced individual spirits.

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.

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!

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!

Spiritual development of human beings, not that of non-humans(animals)

My spiritual focus is very much into improving this world spiritually. This has to be done by improving on the spiritual beliefs and techniques of the human inhabitants on this planet. Some people connect better with animals than human beings. We need to learn to do better at connecting with our fellow human beings. Animals just reflect the spiritual energy they are exposed to. Human beings are capable of so much more spiritually. But often human beings behave not much different than animals. People often project human characteristics onto animals. Animals are a lot tougher than humans realize in handling what ever life sends their way. Humans often project onto the world what they would like to believe to be true. A lot of human beings are not that solidly connected to reality, so as to be really sensitive to other human beings. They often prefer to relate to pets over human beings since pets easily respond to what spiritual energy they project onto them. Some people like to believe all life forms are on the same level spiritually. But, the truth is that some life forms(like human beings) are capable of achieving amazing things spiritually. But, the human race will not advance a lot further spiritually, if it denigrates any effort by anyone trying to perform on a higher(more competent) level spiritually than others. Some people are just better than others in certain areas due to their hard work and potential. We need more people to work hard at improving in the spiritual area on this planet. Being on the same spiritual level of animals(non-humans)is not going to do much to improve the really messed up spiritual conditions on this planet.

In order to do the really intense spiritual-physical training I developed and do, one must have guiding spiritual beliefs(theories)that enable one to handle a the very heavy dose of reality it spiritually connects one with.  Human being are able to push themselves extremely hard spiritually and gain a lot of understanding of how the spiritual works on a very complex level.  We can do amazing things to transform the world we exist in in a positive way provided we advance a lot further in our understanding of the spiritually.  Our pets will gain from our advances through the type of spiritual energy we feed them!

We need more spiritual expertise on this planet, and need the media to be more of a factor in helping this happen!!!

I am in #Houston trying to get my very unique and valuable spiritual beliefs and techniques to the public. I have always been unfairly discriminated against for being “differently or uniquely abled” in this world. The media tends to be locked into a certain mind-set that screens out people like me and deems me as not worthy of accessing the real freedom of speech that only being on the public airways can provide. The media is controlled by certain interests(often interested in maintaining the “status quo” that help finance them). The religious/spiritual status quo is also hard to go up against with authoritarian religions that think they are connected perfectly with perfect divine/spiritual sources also are interested in not allowing an innovative/creative spiritual type person like me get in a position to “rock the boat”.

 

I have spiritual beliefs that are geared to help those with the most challenging of spiritual/psychological/emotional problems and to help deal with the serious problems in this world that are so emotional/spiritually charged! The spiritual is powered by the emotions and a person with true spiritual expertise is able to handle the whole spectrum of emotions in a positive way. People sometimes glorify certain emotions and give them and overly positive spin, while demonizing others. But, all emotions exist for a purpose and can be of great value when directed in a constructive positive way.

 

My beliefs are designed to help people handle the roughest physical/spiritual states a person can face in this very challenging physical reality we exist in. They are not beliefs that devalue the importance of this physical reality we exist in and the challenges it poses to us spiritually. A spirit can not be strong or function really well without being in a challenging environment. Tough spiritual training techniques(like the ones I have developed and train myself with)help one to become able to handle extremely tough physical/spiritual states, so that one will be able to better perform spiritually in the field(real life). Good training is suppose to prepare one to have the professional skills to be able to better contribute in ones field of expertise to others who can benefit from it, and to making the world a better place by so doing.

 

Science does not have all the answers, and often intrudes to much in areas that are spiritual in nature and not that easily dealt with with their scientific methods/techniques. The field of psychology is dominated by the spiritual, and the field of medicine is greatly affected by the spiritual. We need really badly to advance further in the spiritual area, so that we can keep science from dominating areas that should be the territory of those who have really advanced spiritual training. We need to advanced spiritually to the point that we all become “spiritually independent” and able to search for the best spiritual beliefs and techniques and not be controlled by authoritarian spiritual ideology dominated by “bigger than life” historical/mythological figures/individuals from the past. Being divided by differing spiritual ideologies/mythologies, has harmed our spiritual advancement on this planet, science does not have all these differing ideologies to deal with and is able to be a united field searching for the truth about our physical universe. The spiritual need to advance so it can take a similar approach as science while using effective spiritual methods to discover what works the best to effectively improve the spiritual conditions that exist on this planet and solve the serious problems that exist here to quite a degree that have their roots in the spiritual. So many problems could be better address in this world if people developed further spiritually so that their emotions and desires could better be harnessed to bring positive constructive results rather than tending to sabotage our attempted to improve the state this world is in.

Spirits that connect with us and give us guidance

My belief in the vital/indispensable connection of the physical and the spiritual, and the importance of having the parts of the brain that deals with the spiritual very well trained through physical-spiritual exercises affects what I believe, and in turn help me to value these extremely rough&challenging exercises enough to put myself through them.

We attract kindred spirits(who are between lives)our way that will attach themselves to us, until they find a new body that fills their need in their next life. A spirit requires the part of the brain that deals with the spiritual to enable it to function(operating on the proper level that it needs to function at). When incarnated in the type of body with the proper brain for its spiritual requirements, the spirit is able to do a lot on its own in the physical world it is part of and has responsibilities toward. But, when the body loses its ability to support the spirit’s needs(through its spiritual brain function), it must abandon the body(let it die) and find another way to gain the connection with the physical machinery(brain function)to keep operating spiritually. Since a new body to meet its needs will not be immediately available, the spirit will temporarily find a kindred spirit to attach to that will share the needed brain function with them required to maintain their continued existence. In return this spirit can give one guidance, but will not be able to take over the body that one has obtained ownership/command of through growing up with it and developing it.

There exists spirits that are kept in existence by being fed by the power of beliefs of groups of like believers. These spirits will be connected to a number of spirits with brains with advanced enough spiritual function to support them. God is the necessary universal spirit that keeps our physical reality functioning well and is automatically supported by the spiritual parts of the brains of all biological bodies that have such function. My beliefs have been developed as a result of deep well reasoned spiritual thinking helped with the spiritual strength and awareness that my intense physical-spiritual training has provided me with.

Nobody has a perfect spiritual connection with God, and will connect with God and other spirits on the level they are capable of based on their spiritual development.  So the guidance one gets will only be as good as what our spiritual development enables.  Our intuition will never be perfect, but can be improved with proper training and then help us to connect with better spiritual guidance from what ever spiritual source we are able to make a connection with.

Advancing spiritually is just not as simple as just eliminating meat.

I have not eaten meat for a very long time. Did eat some fish quite a while ago. I am pretty sure if I ate some lean meat for protein today that I would not suddenly lose all the spiritual strength and awareness I have developed through all the really hard physical-spiritual training I do.  In my experience, I do not find non-meat eaters overall that much more spiritual than meat eaters. Often people exaggerate the spiritual and physical benefits of certain diets over other ones. I do not automatically assume someone is not very spiritually advanced just because they eat meat, or assume some one is spiritually advanced just because they do not eat meat. I just do not find a lot of people on this planet that advanced spiritually.

 

I believe a really healthy diet with added vitamin-mineral supplements works well along with really intense meditative/spiritual and cardio(heart) exercises is very important to ones physical-spiritual well being. An ascetic calorie restricted diet with very small frequent meals can help one to get the really lean body type that makes one really strong and aware spiritually. We need more people that are willing to work hard to improve on their spiritual beliefs, and diet, so that they are able to do the really tough spiritual-physical training required in order to develop a great deal of spiritual expertise. It just is not as simple as just eliminating meat.

 

We need people in the various occupations that are required to make this planet function well for all. Not everyone needs to have the spiritual as their main focus or occupation. People can utilize the expertise of well trained(conditioned)spiritual professionals to help one keep on the right track spiritually while one focuses in an occupational field that ones innate capabilities are well suited to.

I was on a very austere calorie restricted diet when I posted this blog.  I made a lot  of spiritual progress on this extreme diet. but have gone off it to quite a degree since then and gained weight.  My current diet is still very strict, but with more calories and I feel works extremely well for what I am doing now spiritually.
