1. We are all One (of One, of God, divine, interconnected).
Nothing can exist outside of God or be “non-God.” To be non-God, where would it come from; what would it be made of? This is perhaps the most basic, most obvious truth. It’s easy to deduce with the slightest contemplation, leading to the obvious conclusion, espoused by many religions, that there has only ever been, and therefore could only ever be, One God. All that is seen, and all that is unseen, is pure God. Every grain of sand, the vacuums of space, every thought, every one of us, is pure God.
2. Thoughts become things (we are creators).
Literally, our thoughts, being pure God for the prior truth, have an energy and a “life force” all their own. Our thoughts are “alive,” aware, and active. This is not to imply they have humanlike characteristics, just as we don’t generally ascribe such characteristics to a zebra or a rose (even though both are pure God), but our thoughts have their own brand of awareness and their own characteristics and properties of consciousness. Within time and space, one such property is that our thoughts immediately, “intelligently,” seek to be physically manifested. Seen through the prism of time: God becomes consciousness, becomes awareness, becomes thought, becomes matter—such transformations neither diminish “It,” nor make “It” any less God.
3. Life (consciousness, God, energy; we ourselves) is eternal.
We are the creators of this illusory dimension of time (Einstein himself called it relative), so we must exist “before” it and we will exist “after” it. Granted, this may again stretch those who rely exclusively upon their physical senses to interpret reality. But doesn’t our mere essence, our mere existence, being clearly independent of our physical bodies make this obvious—evidenced by the nocturnal dream state, countless near-death and out-of-body reports, and our stream of waking consciousness, none of which can logically be the product of our cells, atoms, and molecules)? And if our awareness is independent of our body, it must then be independent of space and therefore independent of time. (Time is simply an attribute, or a measure, of space; they are one and the same, like an X and Y axis that creates a plane. Without time, you cannot have space, and vice versa.)
4. There is only Love (there is only God).
Similar to, if not the same as, the first truth, this phraseology allows us to introduce the concept of love. Mustn’t some form of love— divine love, undoubtedly far beyond what we practice as human love—be the motivation and reason behind all reality? Without love, which is a form of caring, why bother creating worlds and developing consciousness? Furthermore, when it comes to infinite Divine Intelligence, or the Creator of all “things,” could there possibly exist even the tiniest pocket in reality that was forgotten, tainted, or “mis-created” into anything that wasn’t full of divine love? This brings us to the next truth.
5. It’s all good (everything is exactly as it “should” be).
Again, similar to prior truths above, yet stated in this way, this absolute allows for another concept to be addressed: “chance.” In Divine Mind, even while all things remain possible, with infinite possibilities for expansion into unimaginable realms, in the deepest sense, ultimate outcomes, such as growing, learning, and remaining One with Divine Mind after the adventure, were not left to chance. There’s no possibility for mistake, accident, should have, maybe, or hope so because the general potentials for development were all seen and understood at a higher level before our adventure began.
As an analogy, while there may be an infinite number of roads to Rome, none of them change Rome. And just because to us, from our extremely limited perspectives, it seems that bad things happen, in the grandest scheme of things this becomes an impossible conclusion. Further, taking into account that we are pure God, pure energy, eternal, living in an adventure-dream world of our own creation, no matter what happens in this adventure we all return to our celestial source, wiser, whole, enriched, and all-powerful. The only conclusion is that “it’s” truly all good.
These truths of being are not meant to be an all-inclusive list, as each of these truths could have a number of spin-offs, such as those offered in the parentheses, but the list is sufficient to obtain a solid grasp on the nature of our reality and to begin applying our power to fantastic effect. I’d also like to point out that of these truths, only one has a variable: Thoughts Become Things… And look who’s thinking now.
