Suspended

A Love Poem (Tanka Form)

Warm days are waning,
And seagulls flirt with the sea,
We lean to earth’s edge,
As our desire suspends us,
We drift beyond time and space.

Article ~ I CALIBURN LOVE

July 30, 2015 Article ~ Originally written for a writing prompt to #MakeWiseHistory 
(see prompt *guidelines at end of this article)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
**NOTE: "Caliburn" is Archaic speech for Excalibur

**I CALIBURN LOVE

LOVE,  How Can I Define it?

LOVE  How Can Love be Defined, what is it’s worth?
Love is a word which has nearly lost it’s meaning for many. Because love is a word which has been misused, it has been used to manipulate & people even attach the word to things. But true love is unconditional, and it’s made up of so many things; for this reason, it is nearly impossible to explain love is in words. Yet love’s value is far above all else in this world, love is the unseen in us which gives life.
    But how can we know what love is, how can we teach love? We can speak of our expressions and acts of love, we can even speak of how love makes us feel, but Love itself seems indefinable with words alone. For “love” encompasses every aspect of our being. Therefore, love itself can only truly be defined by one’s actions, it can be observed, “what we do for the sake of love”. For to love someone, is to unconditionally surrender our self-defenses; it is to sacrifice our own needs and pride at times, for the sake of another, sometimes even at the risk of our own well being.

It is written that a man named Jesus once said to his disciples, “There is no greater love then this; that one lay down their life for their friends.” 
~: New International Bible :~

**I CALIBURN BE LOVE
(Tanka style poetry)

I trounce you darkness,
Put my sword to your cold heart,
Your hatred shall not rule me,
For I am the power of light,
I Caliburn be love.

“I Caliburn Be Love” Tanka Style Poetry &Article

We all need love. Scientific studies have proven that, those who are shown love thrive and those who are deprived of it wither & in some cases one can even die when deprived of love. It is only love, which can fully open our heart to experience the best of life. Without love there would be no passion in life. It is love which takes us to heights of ecstasy; and love can also plunge us to the very depths of agony. But even though sometimes love can bring us the greatest pain in life, we cling to it; for love is the very essence of our soul, love is that which makes us human. To put love into words, I believe that the following biblical text defines the essence of love best:


"The Way of Love"
If I speak in the language of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the ability to prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge of the universe, if I have all faith enough that I can remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I sacrifice my body in order to boast; but do not have love, I receive no benefit.
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. Love is not glad about injustice, but it rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all that is positive, love brings hope to every circumstance, and love enables us to endure all things. Everything else in this world will pass away, but love last forever…
~: New International Bible 1st Corinthians 13 :~

In conclusion, my opinion of love is this: Anything which does not fit the above text, ("The Way of Love") is NOT love. For I believe that, love is the sustenance of our being, it is the light and life within us, and it is our legacy in this world, to be passed on for generations to come. Our love transcends the physical it is the sacred part of our-self made eternal. Therefore, the love we share with others is the only thing we have to give, which lasts beyond the life we live.

CHRONIC PAIN, the pain of Fibromyalgia is like being crucified daily, but unlike crucifixion, no one can see your suffering... Your ability to live life freely has been robbed & that is the sword thrust in you! ... But, death does not come to relieve... Then there are times when the pain disappears, just long enough to remind you what it is like to live free... Then again! ...the Banshee comes screaming, sadistic bitch! This is my life, Dolly S.J.

DON’T BE WORRIED ABOUT THESE KINKY BOOTS!

Clarification is a good thing! 
about the topic, “Submissive – Dominate Intimacy” Couples Role Playing

I often present somewhat controversial subjects on my profile page; such as the current offering on “submissive/dominant” sexual intimacy. Whatever subject I share, I always try to present all subjects in as unbiased manner as possible. Therefore, sometimes I’m sure some people may think my life must be pretty weird or kinky. The truth is, I am a free spirited person, but I actually live a very simple, ordinary lifestyle. However, I strive to share subjects which I hope are going to make people think beyond what they already know from personal experience. I try to present topics which are interesting, stimulating, & informative. Therefore, so far I have shared a wide range of topics; from the practical, science, fun, funny, & even supernatural phenomenon.
     
Now getting back to my current topic, I think it is very important to mention at I realize there’s always a huge risk of misconception or misunderstanding with controversial topics that I present online. So I want to clarify a couple things about this month’s current topic because of the intimate nature of it. It is important that you realize I DO NOT, support any practice or behavior, which is physically or emotionally harmful to anyone.

The current subject “Submissive – Dominant Intimacy” is about sexual role playing between consenting adult partners, it is sensual sex play which does no harm; it is for the purpose of stimulating healthy passion & excitement usually in long-term relationships. Healthy, consensual, sex play or role playing, between couples often helps to keep things fresh, which encourages ongoing desire between partners. It is extremely important to maintain sexual intimacy between partners of any age. Because human touch & emotional acceptance is as important to human health as is food, water & sleep.

What is “Submissive – Dominant” couples role playing?
1.)    It is ‘Not’ “Sadomasochism,” Sadomasochism is a practice which involves potentially dangerous behaviors such as: physical beatings, gagging, choking, touchier, forced sexual situations & practices which cause extreme emotional humiliation to a partner. Also, heavy bondage & restraint equipment is used, with which a person is unable to free them self on their own.
2.)    Submissive – Dominant role-play, is a situation means one person is in charge & the other surrenders to their instruction. Usually,  partners use costume such as sexy lingerie such as bustiers, & thongs etc, is set in a special, sexy room at home, or somewhere new, & (per agreement between partners) may use blindfolds, masks, “soft restraints” (such as cloth ties) sexual toys, (such as ticklers, soft paddles, fur cuffs, vibrators etc) whatever is comfortable for both partners. A partner is never restrained in such a way they cannot get free if needed. The intensity of interaction is always seductive, exploitative, teasing, pleasing & never harms or frightens. There is always a “safe word” which means STOP NOW; the reason for this is because sexual verbalization can often be confusing in the heat of passion.
3.)    The Dominate partner gives verbal/non-verbal direction & asserts what I refer to it as “compassionate control,” this requires being in tune with their partner’s comfort level/needs. The Submissive partner maintains an attitude of surrender during their entire intimate encounter. Both roles requires being in tune with your partner. This is why S & D, works best with committed or long term relationships.

4.)    It is not unusual for couples to switch who is the dominant from time to time.

Many couples participate in some version of sensual play, it is part of healthy interaction between them, it keeps things fresh & even often improves a couples ability to communicate more openly & honestly with each other. The key is trying new things sexually, which both partners are comfortable with & this of course, requires open verbal communication. Sensual play usually starts before entering the bedroom, it isn't just "sexual" in nature, but it is intimacy. Sharing quiet, private moments, cuddling on the sofa to watch a movie, laughing & talking about interests, a touch or hug in passing, cooking together, loving words spoken over the phone on a lunch break & never, forget to say "I love you," it doesn't always have to be in words, but those words are very important! These exchanges are the things which prepare the mind for more deeply intimate interaction later.

Statistics show that couples with an open intimate relationship, tend to remain monogamous & in long-term relationships.

If you have any questions about the current topic, please feel free to ask me! Also, please comment, your input on this subject is important. Thank you!

POEM - ON CHANTILLY LACE

A "Tribute Poem" to my love, following this article


Tea & Petit Fours "On Chantilly Lace"

People who know me well, know that I live with a disabling illness, which makes my immune system very sensitive. Today I woke up feeling so bad I couldn't get out of bed. I was suffering with terrible bout of hay fever. Much to my delight Mick showed up with lots of love & adoration; he brought me a box of my favorite French Petit Fours & my favorite tea. Mick kissed me on the cheek & told me I was beautiful, I knew he really meant it too, when he stood up he pulled his phone out of his pocket & took my picture, LOL! 
     Mick always seems to see me through the eyes of his love! Because of this amazing man's love & affection, my life is filled to the brim with happiness. I truly am blessed beyond measure! It is because of him that I have the confidence to share the following with you... Mick's photo of me, "NOT at my best!" So, excuse the puffy eyes, no makeup, hair a mess, & my PJ's,... (it's all for the arts & the love of my muse) by the way, don't expect to see many photos of me like this, LOL!
    When a woman feels less then able to meet life head on, & her love sees her only as beautiful; she needs nothing more to bring her bouncing back to her confident best self. When someone is down, a sincere expression of love is always the best boost for one's hope & confidence.

The Poem below is dedicated to the man I love ~ (This photo of me was taken by Mick Manning)

On Chantilly Lace

Today he brought me tea and Petit Fours,
Then bending down, he whispered in my ear,
Saying, “You’re so beautiful today my dear;”
©
As I sat up in bed pushing back, my untidy hair,
With a blush and shy smile, my eyes began to tear,
I think that, “This man’s love... it truly is so rare;”
©
His love's like Chantilly lace, is precious and so fair,
Nothing do I cherish more then, this love we share,
Thought of life without him, is more then I can bear.

DON'T JUDGE - You don't know!

WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU MEET, COULD FILL A VAST OCEAN...

HUMAN MORALITY: A short Article & Music Video collection.


Especially online, we cannot know what a person has been through in life! Everyone has had joys & tragedies, good & bad experiences, successes & failures, love, heartbreak; in this we have no choice... But it is the hardest parts of life which build strong character in us, in this we do have a choice... We can allow the hard things to mold us into a bitter, angry person, OR we can allow those things to make us a strong, more compassionate & loving person.
   The import thing  about living a good & honest life is, that a person learns above all, to 'not' judge others. Appearances are often deceiving, it is not how a person looks, the tone of their skin, how they dress or even how someone expresses their self creatively; these are not the marks of the quality of a person's character. Instead it is the way someone  treats others which speaks of who they are as a person.
    When we look at another person we certainly cannot tell what a person has been through. In addition, we do not even know what good that a person contributes to this world. For in most cases, the most honest, compassionate, kind, & giving people remain true unsung champions of mankind... What these heroes give to the world, is usually given quietly, in private, without receiving any accolades.
    It is human nature to be somewhat judgemental, but the next time you meet someone & feel that desire to judge because of what you think you see... PAUSE, REWIND, & REFLECT, on 'your own' imperfections, then wait,,, It is important that all of us give time for a person to prove who they really are, It is  important to look for the inside to shine through, to look for a person's true spirit their character & that takes time. Don't be narrow minded, or you just could miss out on being blessed by the love others want & have to share with you.

I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!

It is my belief that the greatest purpose in life which we all serve, is to bring hope to others. How we bring hope to others, is by honestly & openly sharing our triumphs over adversities in life; it is these experiences which are our miracles!

Read why I believe in miracles & link to one of my Facebook friend's miracle story.
By, Dolly S.J. Piper


PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR MIRACLE STORY IN THE COMMENT SECTION, Thank you!


THE LIVING WATER PRINCIPAL 

A story about sharing "faith & hope" from the Bible NASB 
(Read the "Living Water Principal" Bible story below my personal article)

Read my personal article below this photo & link
READ ABOUT MY FACEBOOK FRIEND’S MIRACLE BIRTHS (see her picture below). Link Here, to read her Facebook post

Biblical Miracles Do Still Happen Today

By definition a “miracle” simply put, is an event or experience, which defies scientific, medical or other common explanations.

Why do I believe in miracles? 

Because I have experienced them in my life; for example: When medical treatment failed to help me. Through prayer I have been instantly healed of:

1. Over twenty years ago I was diagnosed with a severe liver condition, which I was told will kill me if I did not get medical treatment to correct the problem. So I did get treatment, but the medical treatment failed to correct the problem. Yet with prayer & faith I continue to defy that diagnosis. I am not only still alive but also I continue to live a generally healthy life, still without any of the signs or symptoms of liver failure.
2. In 1980 after being told that I was going to die because there was nothing else the doctors could do to help me, after two people prayed together with me & I was instantly healed of terminal abdominal cancer & epilepsy.

3. in 1993 I was in an accident which broke my back & almost severed my spinal cord in my neck. I was told by doctors "not to get my hopes up too high," but possibly with intensive physical therapy, I might be able to recover from being bed fast to use a wheelchair. After prayer I began to recover quickly within six months I could walk again using a walker for support, within two years I no longer even needed the walker & within four years, I was able to power walk a mile in seven minutes!

3. Several of my family members have had similar experiences with instantaneous healing of terminal cancer & other illnesses. Also, following a simple prayer, my mother instantaneously recovered from a massive stroke. Mom left the hospital healed of all signs & symptoms of the physical damage from that stroke. Following that stroke, mom lived a happy, healthy life until she passed 5 years later when she was 86 years old.

4). THERE HAS BEEN TIMES I HAVE BEEN IN SUCH FINANCIAL DISTRESS, that I did not even know how I could make ends meet for even my basic human needs like food & shelter… But, through prayer in faith, I have received unexpected substantial amounts of money to help me get by; or sometimes without asking, I have been given food, clothing or other resources I needed. In addition, even in times when jobs were few, I have been offered the best employment opportunities. The point is, I have never had to go without for long; no matter what the circumstances may have been!

For those who believe in miracles & have prayed for a miracle, but not received it, there is always the question in their minds “Why didn’t I get the miracle I prayed for?” Is it lack of faith, am I a bad person & being punished, or am I unworthy for some other reason? I do not think either of those answers is correct. So following here’s my take on a possible “why” answer to that question:

"ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE & DO NOT DOUBT” this means “faith” in the Creator’s ability & desire to give what you’re praying for, (Mark 9:21-23 NASB). I'm impressed to “re-enforce your faith in miracles” based on this scripture & the following understanding on why your past prayers for a miracle may not have been fulfilled yet.

Our Creator does NOT live in a box! Therefore, to "receive a miracle" we must be able to think "outside of the box" what I mean by this is; have "no expectations" as to “HOW” our Creator will answer your prayers for a miracle. Having expectations as to "how" a miracle request is answered, can often limit your ability to receive that blessing. Just "Ask & you will receive" (Mathew 21;20-22 NASB); this is the key for opening the door for your miracle! Don't prevent the Creator's ability to give you what you're asking for, by limiting the way in which you think our Creator is going to give you what you’re praying for. Keep an open mind! (Before you pray, read below some of the alternative ways your prayers may be answered) then, BE BLESSED & RECEIVE YOUR MIRACLE NOW!

OUR PRAYERS MAY BE ANSWERED IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS WE MAY HAVE NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED

IN SEEMINGLY HOPELESS SITUATIONS:

1). Following prayer, in addition to instantaneous physical healing, people have received miraculous physical healing through traditional medical treatment, & new or innovative medicine such as holistic treatment as well.

2). Following prayer, those who are having extremely bad financial problems; have received large sums of money from surprise inheritances, free contests, or other unexpected sources. Others have even been offered employment or business opportunities which came from unexpected resources. Families have been given free cars, homes, food, clothing, or had their needs met by other unexpected sources.

3). Following prayer, people have been reunited with family members which have been missing for years, or people who thought they were alone & had no living family members; have been contacted by family the didn’t even know they had.

4). After prayer, women who have been unable to conceive children have given birth, have been given a family member’s child to raise, or become able to adopt children unexpectedly.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOUR NEED IS, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF ITERATIVE WAYS YOUR NEED CAN BE MET, often in many ways you may not ever even think of. If a need is met by any unexpected means, that is your miracle!

Miracles are ‘not’ based on being perfect, good, or religious, miracles are based only on “having Faith!”

It is my belief that the greatest purpose in life which we all serve, is to bring hope to others.



"Living Water Principal" Bible story
Conversation With a Samaritan Woman

4:4 But he had to pass through Samaria. 4:5 Now he came to a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the plot of land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 4:6 Jacob’s well was there, so Jesus, since he was tired from the journey, sat right down beside the well. It was about noon.
4:7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me some water to drink.” 4:8 (For his disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies.) 4:9 So the Samaritan woman said to him, “How can you – a Jew – ask me, a Samaritan woman, for water to drink?” (For Jews use nothing in common with Samaritans.) 
4:10 Jesus answered her, “If you had known the gift of God and who it is who said to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 4:11 “Sir,” the woman said to him, “you have no bucket and the well is deep; where then do you get this living water? 4:12 Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.”

4:13 Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again. 4:14 But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in Hima fountain of water springing up  to eternal life.” 4:15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come hereto draw  water.” 4:16 He said to her, “Go call your husband and come back here.” 4:17 The woman replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “Right you are when you said, ‘I have no husband,’ 4:18 for you have had five husbands, and the man you are living with now is not your husband. This you said truthfully!”

4:19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I see that you are a prophet. 4:20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you people say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.” 4:21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 4:22 You people worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because salvation is from the Jews. 4:23 But a time is coming – and now is here  – when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers. 4:24 God is spirit,  and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 4:25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever he comes, he will tell us everything.” 4:26 Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am he.”

 foot note:LATIN To mediate for, released, loosed, unloosed, unloosened, unbound, “paid in full” 
"SHE MEDIATES IN PRAYER" 

 INTERCEDER PERSOLUTIS

 With sorrows struck, feme sought for sleep,
Yet, she could not, she didst only weep;
With furrowed brow in dark of night,
Embattled fights by angel's aerial;
As a vigilant conciliates in prayer,
Feme pleas to mend rare paladin,
But solus, canst she burden part?
For only one, dost hold that heart,
And, heal that warrior’s scars of fray;
For 'tis grace, alone his sting is bought;
Tho in siege feme is bent thy willow bough,
And 'tis for Persolutis, *יהוה soldier is restored

Increase Your Level of Productivity & Creative Energy


Alpha State Meditation for Relaxation

MID-DAY MEDITATION




Afternoon "Meditation for relaxation" in "Alpha state." This leads you to your Circle of Light, mid-afternoon. This practice will reduce your need for long hours of sleep each day (24 hours). This also increases your evening energy level; as you are also aligning Chakra energies on your way into Alpha state. Therefore you attain the "Ideal energy state" for "Circle of Light" experience.

Alpha state is: Alpha waves are a type of brain wave that occur when a person is relaxed, but still awake. Alpha waves typically occur when you are falling asleep, as you pass from wakefulness into sleep (from wake into stage 1 sleep). However, when you are meditating you are suspending at that level, not allowing yourself to actually going into sleep. Some people may refer to this as a "Power Nap". Though, this is "not a sleep replacement" many people find that their need for sleep reduces by 1 - 2 hours at first, & over time; many people have a decrease in needed sleep by as much as 4 hours each day. 
THE BENEFITS: A Higher level of Productivity & Creative Energy. The purpose for this is NOT so you can add more tasks to your day or work longer hours! 
EFFECTS: are #1. Give you the Very Best Quality of Life #2. Increase the Quality of your Productiveness during Working Hours #3. Increase your energy & enjoyment in Free time hours. Life Key for "Health, Balance & Happiness"
PEACE, LOVE, & LIGHT, Dolly (~8[{

ALPHA STATE MEDITATION ~ Learning the Process
This is an "Advanced Level Meditation," for Relaxation 
(for the beginner in "Basic Meditation" see links below A.S.M. instructional section)

INTRODUCTION ~ A.S.M. process requires an advanced understanding of & experience with meditation.
[1]A.S.M. begins much in the same way as [2]S.F.M. As it is, all meditation begins with a period of relaxing. However, as A.S.M. is focused on the “relaxing in its-self.” A.S.M. is for the purpose of achieving body and mind stress release for restoring full body and mind energies. Therefore, A.S.M. works much in the same way as getting a full night’s sleep. However, he difference between sleeping and A.S.M. is that one suspends their mind at the state prior to going into full sleep. In addition, there is a difference between A.S.M. for relaxation and the short relaxation period in preparation for S.F.M. The difference between the two, being that A.S.M. is a deeper form of relaxation, which lasts for an extended period (20 – 30 minutes), and ones mind is not allowed  to continue to ascend into a “spiritually seeking” level. Nevertheless, there have been times when I have allowed my mind to continue to ascend into a higher spiritual state; this of course is not disallowed!  In fact, I have found that when I do continue to a spiritually focused level from A.S.M. I have achieved a deeper spiritual experience. However, if one does not have the time required for a spiritual ascension because you need to return to work this is not advised.

THE PURPOSE
A.S.M. works much in the same way as getting a full night’s sleep in a very short period of time. This form of meditation is focused on ultimate relaxation of ones body and mind, for the purpose of restoring body and mind energy to their fully rested state. Ideally A.S.M. is done mid-day, this will increase ones levels physical strength, creativity, and productivity to their maximum ideal capacity. With A.S.M. the goal for its benefits is preventing body and mind exhaustion during our most active period of the day. Therefore, ones quality of life becomes much greater. Better quality of life, results in overall spiritual, mental and physical health. In addition, A.S.M. helps one to maintain a life balance. In addition, you will increase strength to command your spiritual, mental, & physical being. Therefore, as a result one may extend ones physical life. NOTE: A.S.M. is one of the main [3]Life Keys.

THE PREPARATION FOR A.S.M.
BEGINNERS, be sure to have a small alarm near by (a simple beep is fine), set it for 20 minutes. In the beginning of learning A.S.M. relaxation, it is common to fall asleep; until you have learned where your relaxation to sleep threshold is located. Do not be concerned if you should fall asleep, you will not be able to go into a deep sleep because your alarm will wake you.
   Ideally, allow 30 minutes from begin & complete of A.S.M. meditation. If you are at work, ideally you are allowed a 1 hour lunch beak, so that you can eat following you A.S.M. relaxation. One should not eat prior to A.S.M. although juice & water is good. This is because, during A.S.M. meditation, your digestion process will slow down, similar to when you’re sleeping. Therefore, a meal in your stomach could cause stomach distress later. Also, digestion requires a high use of energy so your body would be unable to fully relax.

1.) CLOTHING – (When at home), nudity is good for this process. Otherwise, wear very loose, comfortable clothing such as an ‘unbelted’ Caftan or robe (no underwear with elastic, wiring or corded ties that bind). When at work wear as comfortable of clothing as possible, removing shoes, jackets & hats as they tend to restrict the body & become distracting.
2.) ENVIRONMENT – No phones/cell phones, pagers, computers, doorbells, pets, children or people who require immediate care & attention. BEST SETTING: Choose a peaceful/quiet, secure setting, slightly dim lighting is preferable (closed blinds/curtains). If you are in an outdoor setting you should be in a covered or shaded area. If in a somewhat public area; try to choose a secure space, which is generally free of foot traffic, without distracting noise & activity such as construction or high street traffic. (Music & Headphones are not advised). Remember, although you will not be sleeping you should be in a place which you could be comfortable sleeping.

THE A.S.M. PROCESS
FOR THOSE EXPERIENCED IN MEDITATION – (The process of basic meditation is not covered here).
1.)    Begin with closed eyes mental image focused meditation process.
2.)    As you progress you are doing a quick alignment check of your Chakra center (red to blue) carrying your [4]focus point with you through each level up into blue Chakra level. *See Chakra System illustrated function below footnotes
3.)    Providing you did not find any level out of balance continue to progress to blue making sure you pause & hold at blue
4.)    If you should need balance at one of your lower levels of energy, for now that level is where you will rest for today, this is where you will remain for approximately 10 minutes, staying on your focus point.
1.)    If you are at blue you are now within your full circle of light, this is where you will remain for approximately 10 – 12 minutes. Staying on your focal point.
2.)  Finally release your focus point, allowing yourself to return to fully environment aware.
3.)    Now, time to eat, socialize & return to work!


NOTE: The standard for this process is 30 minutes total time; approx. 7 – 10 minutes to prepare, get into rest state, 10 – 12 minutes in Alpha & the remainder of 30 minute period to return to environment aware state. 



[1] ABBREVIATION: “A.S.M.” Alpha State Meditation (is a meditation for achieving relaxation).
[2] ABBREVIATION: “S.F.M.”  Spiritual Focus Meditation (is a meditation which is focused on getting in touch with your spiritual self.
[3] DEFINITION: Life Key, an aid to obtaining positive life attributes such as strength of character, divine knowledge & wisdom, achieving spontaneous body or mind healing, gaining spiritual or physical abilities etc.
[4]  DEFINITION: a “Focus Point” is a fixed mental image. Here this is used to control ones ability to prevent their mind from wandering or becoming distracted. In addition, in this case it assists one in maintaining a set direction toward ones meditative purpose, allowing one to sustain a semi-conscious state when reaching the desired level for meditation.

THE ULTIMATE CREATIVE FORCE

Have you ever wondered what holds everything together?




    Human beings have the highest functioning brains of all living creatures on earth. Our brain has evolved to the point that we understand more about ourselves and the world around us. However, even with all of the advancement in science and other educational fields, human beings still seem to have many of the same dilemmas we have always faced. Our human nature still seems to ask the same questions such as, "What is the purpose of life?", "Where did we come from & why are we here on earth?" Why is it that we as human beings still have such a sense that there is more to ourselves then meets the eye. What is it about us that causes us to seem to have a need for faith, hope and even a drive toward worshiping something greater then ourselves? This leads to another question, "Why is it that only humans display these characteristics, desires, or needs?" One might think the answers might simply be "It's just because we have a higher functioning brain," or "It is just a part of world wide cultures passed from generation to generation." But, I believe there is much more to it then these. 
    In particular, because of the developments in Physics and medical science, especially in the past 25 years, we have discovered more about the function of all living creatures, this world, our universe and beyond. We now understand that there really is much more to everything than meets the eye. Especially with the advancement of scientific studies at a molecular level such as studies in regard to DNA and String Theory; we know now what complex beings we really are. We know that our body is made up of many parts and systems, including a complex energy system. We also know more about our body's ability to heal it's self, therefore the medical approach to healing has changed dramatically. Because of all of these scientific advancements of our generation, we are becoming more aware of how interconnected all things are, it is becoming much more clear to us now, then ever before, that system, upon, system, our world and all life in it is much more symbiotic in sustaining life then we realized. Hopefully, the following articles in regard to the "Ultimate Creative Force" may aid in answering some of those questions more clearly. The following articles will attempt to explain  UCF, the effect of  UCF on us as individuals and the world as a whole, how and why a unified symbiotic connection is made through UCF.

After writing my first article on "Ultimate Creative Force" (below) I found this video; not by chance I think, for it confirmed the knowledge I had been given through spirit.

This video explains Quantum Consciousness, science theory about the "soul/consciousness" of human beings
We  utilize UCF through our higher consciousness



UCF Article 1 [A]
It Is What It Is” The Theory of Ultimate Creative Force, shall be presented here from a non-religious and/or a non-theistic perspective.  

THE THEORY: [1] There is an Ultimate Creative Force (in short, “UCF”); is responsible for everything that exists. In addition, science has been in the process of proving and supporting this theory nearly since the beginning of science as we know it today. In particular, without giving name to it, scientific research has been proving the existence of UCF since the discovery of mathematical formulas which confirm universal Laws of Physics and String Theory [2] In addition this Creative Force seems to be innately within the very fiber of everything which exists, it is Quanta (except perhaps, A-biotic matter, or dead matter within our universe). Due to the fact that UCF conforms to or is perhaps the cause of our Laws of Physics, [4] UCF is made up of pure, infinite, energy [5] therefore it is rational to conclude that UCF governs all living matter within our plain of existence and perhaps all that is beyond our plain of existence as well (ie. other dimensions). Hence, this theory's tag the “Ultimate Creative Force," in short UCF Theory.
    Within the framework of presenting the concept of UCF, I will provide some scientific reference links and videos which support UCF theory.
Understanding & Defining UCF:  [A] Is UCF a living being? The simple answer to this question is “NO”, not in the sense that human beings define “a living being,” that would imply UCF to be god like. UCF should be instead examined from a scientific point of view. Therefore, it should be considered to be an infinite, eternal, elemental, force. Some of the properties of UCF is that this “infinitely existing,” an ever present force within our pain of existence, and is most likely a part of other dimensions as well. Therefore it is reasonable to conclude that UCF must exist outside of the boundaries of time; yet it also works within what we define as the "dimension of time." In addition, UCF adheres to or possibly creates all of our commonly known laws of physics. [B] Does UCF have consciousness? Scientifically speaking it is indeterminable as to whether or not UCF has a sense of consciousness, however it does not appear to have a sense of consciousness. Therefore, one would have to conclude that UCF has no intent, no motive, or agenda behind it’s natural behaviors. To put it in simple terms UCF is an energy source which exists in all matter, extending beyond a subatomic level, (see String Theory references) UCF appears to possibly be the energy source which binds all matter together.


MY HYPOTHESIS FOR “The Ultimate Creative Force” (UCF) being Infinite, Eternal, Inter-dimensional, & Ubiquitous by nature:
The nature of this Ultimate Force shall be defined here as being omnipotent, and omnipresent,  yet not being omniscient (which would imply a state of consciousness and intent & or agenda) yet in fact this force is responsible for creating everything living which exists  within our universe and beyond
(including mankind); however, perhaps not including non-living matter.
    Is this beginning to sound familiar? Of course, that would be understandable; because (loosely applied) one could say that UCF Theory very well could be the basis for all monotheistic religions. However, this is not what UCF is about at all. The difference between UCF and monotheistic religions is this [a] the theory of UCF, does not provide a doctrine as to how human beings should conduct their lives, because it is not a religion it is instead the concept of a physical elemental force (infinite energy). [b] Therefore, UCF can make no judgment in regard to the moral conduct of human beings nor does UCF demand adoration or worship because UCF is not a god. UCF is simply as its name implies “a force to be reckoned with.” Using videos and other scientific reference material I will present the supporting evidence for this theory; thereby also proving UCF Theory to be a fact based concept.

UCF Article 1 [B]
UCF & HOW IT MAY RELATE TO THE DEVELOPMENT RELIGION:
I am a LCSW with 30 years or more of experience in practical care in the mental health field. Therefore, when I consider the basic nature of human beings, it is my evaluation that religions have built entire theological doctrines around UCF because they did not understand what they were dealing with. Rational leads me to believe, that religions were chiefly formed because early in the formation of civilization, humans somehow recognized the actions and existence of UCF, but having limited knowledge, human beings could not comprehend it. Who can say what natural events took place which drove early humans to draw the conclusion that all these phenomena were somehow interconnected and that there was intent behind these events. Who can say why humans thought these phenomena must’ve been directed by some unseen being? Nevertheless, the concept of this mysterious unnamed force must have been so frightening and confusing that gods were created to reconcile the UCF in their minds. During the beginning of the development of religion, humans being so frightened and awestruck at the recognition of this powerful, seemingly uncontrollable force, that they probably thought it best to pay homage to it to avoid being struck down by it, therefore worship of the actions of UCF ensued through the worship of "gods".
    So then, why does religion still exist in the civilized world? Now that we humans have a greater understanding of nature & scientific concepts; why does religion still exist in the modern civilized world? I will address this issue in the following section.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGION

(Psychological Coping Mechanisms)
Human beings are geared to survive
    It has been my observation that human beings are prone toward worshiping something; I have begun to suspect that there may be something in our genetic structure which may predispose human beings to have an innate desire to worship. There is genetic research which indicates that “Genetic Memory” may be a part of our DNA (this may also include other animal species). Therefore, after several thousand years of humans following theistic or religious practices, it is reasonable to conclude that we may be predisposed. Therefore, even in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence which indicates that UCF is not god/gods, it is very possible that science may never shake civilization free from their gods and religious beliefs.  SEE REFERENCES:
     As far as mental health issues are concerned, I have noticed over the years that those individuals, with a religious belief system in place, tend to recover from trauma and personal loss more quickly and effectively. These individuals also seem more adept at forgiving themselves and others, thereby moving forward with their lives in a positive, productive manner. So, what is the key factor in this process, simply it is the “hope” factor. Hope allows us as humans to get up, dust ourselves off, and continue our lives even when there seems to be no resolve to an issue at the present. People, who have no sense of hope left in life, are those people who commit suicide or just emotionally give up and lay down to die.
    Another factor in maintaining hope for the religious minded is their access to extended emotional support; for example: their church community, Pastors and such. Finally, another factor in maintaining hope; is an individuals confidence and/or self esteem.
So, is having a religious belief system & community in place the only way humans can maintain a sense of hope? No, absolutely not! However, in counseling individuals without a religious belief system or religious community in place, the approach to assisting them with finding resources for maintaining hope, and good self-esteem is somewhat different. Nevertheless, the same principals in recovering from loss and trauma remain the same.

About upcoming related articles
     Following I will also present one or more articles in regard to how religious beliefs may relate to UCF Theory and “Other Dimensions” in regard to UCF. One of my coming articles will address such issues as Biblical documents which have raised some questions related to UCF. For example: In the Bible passage about “Moses encounter with the “Great I AM” & the fiery bush which was not consumed…” In this story, when Moses returned to his tribal encampment from Mt Sinai, it was reported that Moses face/body was glowing and his hair had turned white. This frightened his people so much, that Moses had to put a veil over his face until the glow faded away. So, what really did happen & whether or not the story its-self is true; how could a Documentarian in the time this passage was written, have come up with what is so accurately descriptive of what sounds like exposure to a highly charged electromagnetic field or possibly radioactive material?
