A Spiritual Wellness Coach is a teacher that helps you change the things that you do not want about your life by changing your perspectives and the way you relate on a deeper level. Instead of simply examining and basing judgement on your behaviors and habits, they delve into your deep rooted beliefs and your connection with your INNER. They show you how to work with the laws of the universe to get what you actually want out of life instead of just accepting whatever comes your way.
Spiritual Wellness Coaches are people who live by spiritual principles and not the just every day logic and societal conventions. They know how to make miracles happen, and they help others live happy, fulfilling lives based on the practices that have worked for them. Many people might confuse Spiritual Wellness Coaches with religious leaders, but these are two very different things. You don’t have to be religious to work with a Spiritual Wellness Coach – you just have to be open to deepening your connection with the nonphysical part of yourself, your INNER.
Understanding yourself and your world around you from a spiritual perspective can help you lead a more meaningful life. You may discover that you have a profound purpose and that all of the events in your life have been orchestrated to bring you to your true path. Working with a Spiritual Wellness Coach can reveal your life purpose to you and help you clear out any energetic blocks to living the life that you were always meant to live. A Spiritual Wellness Coach can help you find who you really are and heal your old wounds so that you can move into a better, brighter future.
With Spiritual Wellness Coach, you will be able to change gears from being a victim of circumstances to taking responsibility for your own life. They can help you redefine your focus, away from any negative energy and its effects to positive energy. They understand that as a man thinketh so is he, and so can help you shift thinking from despair to appreciation.
You may have lost a loved one, or you may be struggling through divorce, or you may even be experiencing a mid-life crisis, and yet not feel comfortable talking to anyone, be it friends and family members, about these issues due to a fear of judgment and ridicule. But such barriers don’t exist between you and Spiritual Wellness Coach. They will assist you in a private setting where you can unleash how you feel deep down inside so as to make room for growth and healing.
On matters relating to fundamental life issues, it’s much more rewarding to work with professionals who are in congruence with your sense of spirituality. With a Spiritual Wellness Coach, you will be in a comfortable position to talk about life in a more meaningful way, and you will feel safe and secure when opening up to them. Rather than judgements, concerns, or mocking comments, you will only successfully induce a deepening of your faith and improved sense of spirituality when opening up to Spiritual Wellness Coach.
Mistakes are just one of the ways that we learn, and your he keeps that in mind. Nobody mocks a child for falling down when learning to walk, and your coach will not mock you for your mistakes or imperfections. He would rather focus on helping you map out your next steps in life.
Sometimes we are so carried away in the chaos of the ‘external’ and in the drama that it brings around our own little corner of life, that we tend to see our world from a distorted perspective. We are packed with negative views but we do not know it and so go ahead to victimize ourselves through justifying our negative views of our lives. Sometimes it get so bad that we even blame the universe for our misfortunes. The good news is Spiritual Wellness Coach can work with you to discover your spiritual and energetic hindrances to becoming your true happy self. There’s solution to every problem if only we would search for it till we find it.
We all have our own spiritual beliefs which we want to keep intact despite the coaching. Before engaging the services of a Spiritual Coach therefore, you may want to find out first if he is on the same spiritual “page” as you. For example, if you are of one religious group, it might be hard to connect with another from a different religious belief, as you may not get the most out of the coaching experience when you and your coach do not share the same belief system, particularly in cases where certain beliefs and practices within your own religion are very important to you.
In many cases however, many people are still not certain about who they really are spiritually and are looking to find themselves in that respect. Working with a Coach can reveal your inner belief and bring your ideas about spirituality to the surface. Your Spiritual Wellness Coach can help you get clear on who you are and which forms of spirituality you connect with best. They can help you implement new spiritual practices that allow your soul to blossom and keep you connected to your divine inner wisdom.
Yet another essential virtue in coach-client relationships is Trust. But Trust must be developed. You may want to ask deep questions with a view to testing the answers that you get and ensuring that even though they are new to you, they still align with your INNER. Over time, you might come to trust your coach based on the alignment and relaxation that his quality of services brings to your being. And if you do not come to this point soon enough, then maybe you have not found the right coach and need to move on. There is no bargaining the fact that your perfect Spiritual Wellness Coach will be someone you can feel comfortable with when discussing your deepest aspirations.
Spiritual Coaches know that there are two sides to life, the material and the spiritual. They understand that the material is only a reflection of the spiritual; that the spiritual is the cause where material is the effect. They understand that just as you can work hard in the material to make money so you can use the money to get what you want in the material, so also can you work hard in the spiritual by practice of principle to release what you want in the spiritual which then manifests in the material as the blessing that you seek. They know what principle to practice in order to gain what benefit in line with the universal law that whatever you sow, that exactly you shall reap.
When you do find the perfect coach with whom you are in agreement, the effect of your working together will be phenomenal for both of you. The power of mastermind, which says that where you could do a thousand things on your own, the two of you working together shall do ten thousand things, will come to play.
Life coaching really does change lives. You just come to some point in life where everything appears to stand still and you don’t know which direction to go. Some aspects of your life that used to bring you happiness go to sleep. Of course, you may know the immediate cause of such change or what you did not do quite right that resulted in your ill luck, but working so hard to revert this cause does not change your situation, despite your efforts. This is where a Spiritual Wellness Coach comes in, to be your confidant, mentor and mastermind whose little finger of help can pull you out of your situation and position you to attract even greater ‘blessings’.
In the physics of mechanics, you can link three systems together so power can be transmitted from one to another as exemplified in the gear system of vehicle engine. As long as all three teethed, round metal plates have their teeth aligned to each other, and soaked in oil to eliminate possible friction among metals that constantly rub against one another, the three separate but interconnected sub-systems will work smoothly together as one effective gear system. As it is in science, so it is with the larger universe and with human body, mind and spirit; and the spiritual wellness coach is the ‘engineer’ that understands how these things work.
When any one of these three, the body, mind and spirit, works out of harmony with the other two, friction is created. Just as metal rubbing against metal results in wear, noise and heat, in the case of body, mind and spirit, misalignment manifests as sickness, diseases, organ malfunction and similar experiences. Heat could manifest in your situation as misfortune and instability in relationship, finances, business, etc. So, while you are seeing the actual situation and experiences as your real problem, the spiritual wellness coach sees beyond the immediate cause; he knows that any alternative s to fixing these issues, order than working on re-aligning the three facets of body, mind and spirit, would only amount to a temporary fix, which will not bring the joy and peace that you seek.
As the fluid in the mechanics example play such an important role in the working of the gear system and the gear system will not work outside of the gear oil environment, so is nature in the body, mind and spirit ‘system’. Man cannot isolate himself from nature, by his beliefs and habits, and expected to attract prosperity. As the oil has all the properties necessary to prolong the life of the entire mechanical system as well as provide the most conducive atmosphere to manifest its full potentials, so is nature the custodian of all that human requires to function optimally.
Have you ever experienced the joy of completion of a project, particularly an artistry project like casting or painting? If you have not, then perhaps you have looked at a piece of another man’s artwork with so much admiration that caused you to consider the great imaginations on the part of the artist to bring that artwork to life. Have you marveled about the pure choices of color, and the artistic skill behind every single stroke of brush or the artistic tool used in the artwork? Now bring all of that imagination to bear in the possibility that just as this artwork is the finished work of an artist with so much intuition and robust imaginative faculties, and as the different crafts from buildings on the ground, to buildings swimming in the waters, to buildings flying in the air are finished artworks of great inventors, so is our own very earth with its vast resources of oceans, mountains, deserts, forests, wild life, and so on the artistic finished work of some very creative artist.
This beautiful artwork of His is called Nature. But the artist of our world has been called by different names by different religions, but for the purpose of reference, let’s just call that creator God. Nature is the Art of God. Like a baby takes after its parents, so has Nature taken after its Creator. In fact, the creator is fully reflected in His work of Nature. When you see His work, you have seen him. When you feel his work, you have felt him. When you appreciate his work, you have appreciated him. We may not have to seek Him beyond His work of Nature. He is alive is his works. He is alive in Nature. This is vital piece of information for the spiritual wellness coach.
Beyond the physical beauty, Nature also bears and carries the breath and the life of its creator. Hence its ability to cater for all that the Creator has bestowed it with; to give life, to heal, to preserve, to repair, to co-create with its creator. This living part gives the beautiful Nature the additional, perhaps the more important responsibility, of being mother to everything that its artistic look carry, from the petals of the flowers to waters of the earth. With this responsibility therefore comes the term Mother Nature.
God is an orderly God. Mother Nature being the artwork of God reflects that orderliness of Him. This orderliness is achieved in the practice of Laws and Principles put in place by Him, and enforced by Mother Nature as inspired on it by its creator. In other words, Mother Nature now also acts as a God’s system of government. This system of government ensures that one does not reap where he has not sown. The system ensures everyone who breaks a Law is made to pays for it, while it is ensured that everyone who keeps a Principle gets the reward for it. The system ensures that in the end, the world is a place, an orderly place where everyone gets not necessarily what he wants or prays for, but what he deserves.
But Nature is much more that a physical artwork of God. Nature has and carries life. It carries the breath of its creator. Nature is a living soul. This is why it is able to supply life to all of its inhabitants, for everything in nature carries life. As Nature receives and enjoys life from God, so also does everything in Nature receive and enjoy life from Nature.
This is one of the angles from which environmentalists see Nature. As a living soul that is being bled to death by the greed of man, through the speedy to deplete Nature of its natural resources.
Fundamentally, a paradigm shift is being propagated that man should not be in a rush to deplete the earth of all the natural resources that it took Nature billions of years to prepare and put in place. We should stop seeing the works of Nature on earth as our inheritance from past generations, which we have the liberty to exploit. Rather we should begin to see Nature as inheritance we have borrowed from our children and the future generations. It is believed that this singular shift in mindset will generate harmony
For instance, lovers of Nature believe that man is putting the earth under so much pressure in terms of waste generation, ozone layer destruction, deforestation, depletion of the mineral resources all over the globe, etc. As Nature is no longer able to heal itself as fast as these injuries are inflicted opon it, Mother Nature is literally crying. However, even man is not spared in the consequences of the harm that it has caused to Mother Nature.
Following the law that matter can neither be created nor destroyed, whatever man has enjoyed in one area from civilization derived from the depletion of natural resources, he suffers in another area in the form of natural disaster such as typhoon, erosion, volcanic eruption, climate change, and many other side effects that affect man’s health and mortality on earth are. As action and reactions are equal and opposite, so are the effects suffered by man proportional to the destruction of this beautiful piece of art by God.
Midlife Crisis Therapy is solution for Midlife crisis, which is the transition era between the old you that is dependent on education and whatever comes and the new you that will be dependent on knowledge and therefore can influence to a large extent what does come your way. Because of this significance, midlife crisis therapy is much deeper than the mere external phenomenon of medication or seeing talking to someone as an end instead of seeing it as means to an end.
If you recall that changes (in your situation) that results from the external (third party influence) affecting the internal (changing your inner) is only temporary, but that changes that originate from the INNER to affect your external are permanent, you will definitely want to pursue a midlife crisis therapy that will not only end your crisis, but will also bring back in multiple folds all the good things that you may have lost during the crisis. To this end, while other solutions may exist to deal with midlife crisis, our spiritual approach to midlife crisis therapy presents both solution and opportunity to be start again as a better you.
By the Law of Relativity which states that nothing is what it is until you relate it to something else, you may not understand or even need to experience midlife crises therapy unless you have first experienced some highs in your life as explained above. Only after you have tasted happiness would you know what midlife crisis is when it comes. If you have never experienced the ‘highs’, you cannot experience the ‘lows’ and may therefore never understand the meaning of, or require midlife crisis therapy.
Midlife crisis therapy is something you understand and appreciate when you are born into a world and into circumstances that were not determined by you, at least as we understand it for now; to parents that you did not choose to be borne by. You grow up in whatever environment you find yourself, and try to make the best use of whatever comes your way. Whatever your environment provides, whether rich or poor, good or bad, healthy or otherwise, you learn to live by it.
Usually, after about 30 – 40 years of living, studying and learning from your environment via both informal and formal education, and putting to the best possible use the resources that are available to you, you are rewarded with some level of success in whatever endeavor you have chosen to take up to make a living and manifest your dreams by. At some point during this pursuit, and against the backdrop that you are emerging from a life of financial struggles, you will feel that things have finally worked out fine and you will become happy. Your business will do well, your marriage will be great, your relationship with people will be awesome, you will respected and given your place in your community. During this period, you have no need at all for midlife crisis therapy.
But like the bad times, the good times also don’t last forever as there always comes a time in man’s life when things go wrong and his magical powers to make things happen appear to have been taken from him. There is a point where he invokes his powers but his powers fails him. He does the same thing that has always brought him a particular kind of result over the years but gets no results. He tries harder in the ways that he knows to get results, but he is disappointed. Eventually, he comes to the realization that something has shifted (in the spirit). In the world, this era is referred to as Midlife Crises. Whether he is ready for it or not, it’s time for Spiritual Transformation, time to put away the old spiritual self and begin the process of taking on a new and higher spirituality! Hence he needs to know about midlife crises therapy.
Just as in formal education, you have grades from primary school through university and you graduate from one grade to a higher one after your capacity to excel in the higher has been developed via examinations and the various tests and activities leading to it, so also in the spiritual there’s no limit to what your spirit can achieve as long as you mind has developed the capacity and virtues to control on one hand, and withstand on the other hand, the challenges that come with the new ‘position’.
However, the decision to move on from your comfort zone is not entirely yours to make. Since it’s only nature (you may also call it universe) that understands the big picture and the exact direction you should in order to fit in the big picture, it’s nature that determines when it’s time to take away your current comfort so you can move on. Taking away your current comfort results in midlife crisis. The thing that you have to do, not to avoid midlife crisis because it is necessary but to learn as much as you can from it while it lasts and to convert its apparent setbacks to opportunities for yourself, is contained in the midlife crisis therapy.
So, when nature’s ready to promote you, it does not come down to your current spiritual level to hand you your reward, instead it invites you to come up to the higher level where your reward is waiting. This spiritual movement to a higher level is called spiritual transformation. The process sheds from you those old ‘things’ that you no longer need in the new life you are coming into. You are metamorphosed from the old you into a new you. With midlife crisis therapy, you will still achieve this goal of nature.
During this process which could last a couple of years, you are working at very low capacity like a computer being upgraded or a child undergoing teething. The replacements going on inside of you does not allow you to operate at full capacity. Your spiritual energy level is barely enough to support your everyday operations and therefore your works, your business, your marriage, and other personal endeavors suffer.
During this midlife crisis therapy, things appear to deteriorate. If you had plenty before, at this time you will have very little. If your business was booming before, it will experience doom in this period. Put straight, you practically ‘suffer’ during this period that the universe is building your capacity for the new position and greater things you are coming into, in line with your life purpose and the virtues that you need to develop towards its attainment.
After this ‘dry’ season and the application of midlife crisis therapy of course comes the rain, and things will not only work well for you again, you will actually recover all that you lost in the season of transformation as you enter your season on plenty as this kind of suffering is only temporary.
As the law exists so the breaking of it can separate the criminal minded from the ‘good’ ones, so also do principles exist so the keeping of it can filter and reward the ‘good’ ones from the poor. A principle is a Spiritual law. Nature will find anyone who keeps a principle and separate him from the society of those who do not observe the principle. Keepers of principle are separated from the default state of everyone else and rewarded with equivalent benefits of principle observed. This is the only provision to becoming prosperous. Those who know this practice it and get results. Those who don’t practice it perish in ignorance.
Wealth gotten through any other means order than via practice of principle is not genuine wealth, and must be suffered for. It is either you pay the price for wealth, fame, success and achievement before you enjoy it or you force your way into apparent prosperity now and then pay the price later, in suffering. The resultant suffering is not only commensurate with the pre ‘cheating’ but comes with interest as well. This kind of suffering can take a long time indeed to complete.
A perspective of midlife crisis therapy could look at patient’s lifestyle and beliefs with a view to determining if he has been reaping where he had not sowed. If this is the case, then he must learn, as first step in the midlife crisis therapy, that his crisis may only be a way of paying back what he has borrowed in cheating nature by cheating others. As simple as this may sound, this understanding would not only help to put him in a better position to take responsibility for his situation but will also set off the healing process right away.
The accepting of the fore-going will help midlife crisis patient looking for midlife crisis therapy, to commence true search for the genesis of his problem instead of doing the more common thing of laying the blame on spiritual “enemies”. He begins to ask questions that challenges his current beliefs. He knocks hard on new doors. He seeks knowledge. He searches deep and earnestly for connection with powers that can return him to status quo. He becomes spiritual. Ultimately, he finds that which he seeks. He comes to a higher knowledge and gains midlife crises therapy that molds him into a ‘new creature’. He is a new being with new goals and vision, having developed the virtues of perseverance, hardwork, patience, faith, and having now connected in new synchronicity with his inner-self in the search that lead to his awakening. He becomes ‘born again’.
No man can become truly ‘conscious’ of spirituality unless he first passes through this Spiritual Transformation – midlife crises therapy. No man may be said to have lived a fulfilled life and developed the right virtues for heavenly splendor without having experienced the spiritual rebirth that results from midlife crises therapy. Therefore, even though this awakening era in a man’s life appear to be the most vulnerable part of his life when his life practically collapses on him, it is actually the most significant era of his stay on earth, without which he would only have existed but not lived.
Unfortunately, this is the point at which many get discouraged and give up on life. Out of ignorance, they refuse to continue the journey from the point where their old power disappears onto the point where their new power lies. They fight against circumstances without while all the time carrying and clinging to the very the cause within them that the situation was met to rid.
How many of these people that have given up on life are we able to support, even in our own midlife crises therapy journey? How many are we able to sow a seed of knowledge and courage in, to help them take the next step in their life journey and prevent them from making their current ‘bus-stop’ their final destination? Despite our own burden, we must consciously be our brothers’ keeper. This will be a true demonstration of the love on which everything else in creation rests.
The whole essence of midlife crisis is to expand your INNER for the next level – results in your own growth and evolves you to the new you that aligns you with your purpose.
Now growth does not come from outside in. It comes from inside out. This means that any growth attained externally, by laying of hands or similar ‘miracles’ is both temporary and ultimately detrimental. The only true way to change the image is to change the object of reflection. Any other way that appears to change the image while not modifying the object to get it to reflect the desired modification, is only an illusion and offers only temporary solution.
To awaken simply means that you have successfully channeled enough energy to your mind to make it vibrate at a higher frequency than you currently are. At this new frequency, it is resonating and ‘seeing’ what was hidden to the old frequency, giving you access to a new level of knowledge that you were not aware of.
With this knowledge, ignorance begins to disappear. Although things around you may not begin to change instantly to reflect your new inner state, you will begin to feel happiness inside of you as the light of this knowledge begins to shine on the darkness of ignorance which was the hiding place for worry, fear, anxiety and all the negative children of midlife crisis within you, giving you the POWER to do on a new level, things that you could not do. As you continue to exercise this new ability to do, the knowledge knowledge with which you do them is saved for you in unearthed vessel to which you alone have the key to access. This knowledge base is called WISDOM.
The more you draw from your wisdom, the more you are able to do. This builds your FAITH and complete reliability in the orderliness and Trustworthiness of the universe. The confidence and peace that comes with this kind of faith will attract PROSPERITY to you, which means the recovery of all that you may have lost during your midlife crisis
But how do you come to AWAKENING? Not everyone who experiences midlife crisis comes out of it. Some are never awakened and therefore remain in the crisis all their lives. Some, out of not understanding the real reason of midlife crisis, actually give up in suicide. Some accuse people around them of “evil powers” against them and lose focus on the goal of re-birth to wage unending spiritual wars against these perceived enemies.
To attain awakening, practice principle. This is the first, and maybe the only step that you need to consciously take by yourself in order to come out of your situation. As you practice principle, your spiritual side will be awakened and will help you to take it from that point.
But again, how do you practice principles? What are principles by the way? Can you practice principles on your current beliefs and get results for it? On what foundation must principle be practiced in order to get the results mentioned above? These are questions that you get deepANSER to only f you ask. To ask questions, complete this FORM.
There are not many unique solutions to the problems of the world but a single solution to all problems including and not limited to midlife Crisis Therapy. The single solution to all problems is to be spiritual. To be means that one is in harmonic operation with Nature and therefore able to woo Nature to guide, support, and harness its resources to manifest his desires. This way, one can explore multiple avenues to work simultaneously to accomplish for him that same thing that ‘the other man’ is struggling to achieve, all by himself.
To be spiritual means that one has total trust in Nature to complete its own part of the principle equation that he keeps; knowing for certain that one will reap the benefits of the keeping of principle. This complete trust that nature will do its own part at the most appropriate time it deems fit is called Faith. Thus faith is part of the requirements for midlife crisis therapy.
To be spiritual for midlife crisis therapy, one must be confident of the powers that he has accumulated inside of him. When one has knowledge, and meditates on the knowledge till he has a good understanding of it and can apply it to life situation, that knowledge becomes power. The more one accumulates and meditates on the right knowledge, the more power he gains. This is the power that instills confidence; the power that radiates calmness in the face of trouble; the power that sets one apart from another.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
After the heaven and the earth were created, and while the earth was still completely empty and before anything else on earth was created, there already existed darkness as revealed above. Darkness already existed on earth in its default state. While there is record of creation of light, there’s no record of creation of darkness; darkness was already part of earth from the beginning, even before the spirit of God began to move upon the face of the waters of earth. Also, in the course of creation, there was no killing or elimination of the darkness at any point; only separation of the territories darkness from the territories of Light.
Now, in the language of the bible, spirit (of God) refers to Life, Light represents Good and darkness means Evil. So darkness which means evil was part of earth from the beginning. It was from the point of creation of Light that God began to separate Evil from Good, and naturally began the project of ‘Light relegating darkness to the background and taking over the earth. So, darkness (evil) is the default state of things, and really does not require to be created as it already existed by default as revealed in Gen 1:2 above. While it takes effort (works) to create and maintain light, the default state of darkness does not require effort, so he that is down needs fear no fall.
As governments of the world have put laws and regulations in place for sanity and safety of all its citizens, so that whoever keeps the laws does not attract any punishment to himself but shall enjoy the full rights and privileges of citizenship, so it is with spiritual laws. If you will obey principle (spiritual law), you will enjoy all the rights and privileges reserved for only the ‘good’ ones by the spiritual government of the universe, which we have termed Nature. These rights and privileges come to human in the form of Health, Wealth and Joy.
On the contrary, just as those who disregard the laws and regulations of governments, whether in ignorance or deliberately, are locked away in prison and deprived of the good things of life, so also does the Universe throw out of the realm and frequency of enjoyment, anyone who has not followed spiritual laws and regulations in their dealings and relationships with ‘co-citizens’ of the universe. This ugly state of isolation from the good offerings of Mother Nature is what man refers to as Suffering.
Therefore, evil is a necessary check. Evil is the law enforcement agent of disobedience to spiritual laws, while the state of suffering is the spiritual prison. However, just as darkness was not created but only a default state of things in the material, so evil was not created but the default state of things in the spiritual. Yes, darkness and light exist but only light requires creation. Darkness is only the absence of light, not another creation. When light appears, darkness simply disappears. This means to change a situation all you have to work on is the light. Increase the intensity of your light or reduce its intensity according to the condition you desire to achieve.
Evil is only an agent to bring about (temporary) discomfort as consequence for working against spiritual law. Unless nature is using its elements such as wind, water, fire or earth directly to deliver this punitive measures, evil cannot be delivered by a stranger with whom one may never come in contact, but by a relation or friend with whom one is constantly in contact. So, next time evil comes your way, do not blame your friend or relation that nature used, but take responsibly for attracting the evil; just like a prisoner should not blame the prison or the victim that reported his crime to the police for his woes, but blame himself for committing the crime in the first place.
Now we see that evil is not that bad. As the law abiding citizen would go about his duty on a daily basis without fear of harassment even in the mist of law enforcing agents, so should men who work by principle not be afraid of evil in the same world that his neighbor thinks is most unfair and full of evil.
Faith requires absolute belief in principles, and it is ‘magical’ in its ability to make things happen. In mathematics, probability ranges from 0-1. When probability is 0, that event will not happen. When it is 0.9, it is very much likely to happen. But when it is 1, it is certain to happen. The chances of the event happening is not just likely but certain. In other words, we know for sure that the event will happen.
In the same vein, when belief becomes absolute, it seizes to be mere belief, it becomes Knowing, it becomes faith. If the belief is not absolute, that is if it is not 100%, then it is not faith and therefore will not possess the magical power of faith. Faith is knowing for certain that a benefit will come to pass, because you have made the necessary sacrifices, paid the appropriate price, observed and obeyed the requisite principle.
If you are not certain, then it would be a matter of probability. Even where that probability is as high as 0.999, the other part of 0.001 leaves room for doubt, fear, worry and anxiety. Faith has absolutely no room for any of these negative energies. These emotions, even in their minute forms, dilute faith and renders it powerless.
“But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”
Hope is good virtue but short lived. When you face disappointment or fail to meet a target today for example, hope is the assurance that all is not necessarily lost yet; the suggestion that that which you missed today can still be recovered tomorrow, so hope keeps you looking forward to a tomorrow that is better than your today. Without hope, there will be no excitement in life as you will give up every time something fails. However with hope, you put disappointments and failures behind you and try again with renewed vigor and expectations. But when you do finally meet the target that you hoped for, hope would have completed its job on that issue and would be of no more use. It dies. You will need to generate another hope for another issue.
Faith is great, stronger than hope; but again once it accomplishes its purpose, it dies concerning that purpose. Faith is not mere assurance of belief that some event will come to pass. That kind of assurance would be Hope. Faith is ‘knowing’ that a particular event will sure come to pass. That occurrence is guaranteed to happen because you have taken care of your own part of the work equation, and you have 100% trust that in its own time, Mother Nature will complete the equation to produce the result you desire and for which you have done your part. For example, when you plant a seed, you know for sure that it will germinate. That is faith. If you did not know for sure but had doubts as to whether it was a dead seed or if the ground was good enough to give it germination, then that would be Hope, not Faith.
A major difference between hope and faith would be that (spiritual) works precede Faith. If you had food for today but you are not sure where you food for tomorrow will come from, and then lock yourself in your room and eat your food today alone, and then go on to pray that God provides your food for tomorrow, you will be waiting for that tomorrow food in hope. It may come, it may not come. But even if it does not come, you still thank God and move your expectation to the next day and the next day and the next day. You simply keep hoping that your food for the next day will come someday. On the other hand, if you took the little food you had for today to share with another hungry person out of genuine concern for that person, then you would have done the requisite works part of faith on this particular matter and can therefore be definite that, having preceded faith with works your food for tomorrow shall come to you. All the same, after you get what you worked for, faith would have completed its work on that issue. You will need another faith for the next issue.
But love, the greatest of all, is the singular force that resolves all issues simultaneously and perpetually. Love is a spiritual force that that is eternal. As the ocean is the source of all waters and all waters will ultimately dry up without the ocean, and the sun is the source of all lights and all lights will ultimately quench without the sun, so is love the source of all principle and no principle will work where it is not practiced on the foundation of love.
Divine Love goes far beyond subjective emotions to become a state of being; At the elementary stage of love, it is some emotional reflection of concern, sympathy, empathy, pity and similar positive energies as influenced by mood and circumstances around you. At this initial stage, Love fluctuates and is very subjective. At the advance state of Love however, you proceed to maintain the aforementioned positive feeling on a perpetual basis and remain in that state constantly. Love at this stage emanates from the light inside of you as a result of deep knowledge and understanding, and therefore is no longer influenced by happenings and circumstances on the outside. You become like a pipe void of blockades, and which does not retain anything but allows free flow of nature through it. Because you have retained nothing to contaminate you but allow everything including negative energy such as anger, worry, anxiety, fear, to simply pass through you, there will be absolutely no room in your soul in this world and in the world to come for disease, poverty or sadness. You shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water….whatever you do you shall prosper. You will not need to pray for anything because your prayers are answered even before they are said. Mother Nature will be your friend and by that special privilege, all resources will be at your disposal and nothing shall be impossible for you. For you all the great promises of the holy books will be reality.
