incubator – noun - an enclosed apparatus providing a controlled environment for the care and protection of premature or unusually small babies. • an apparatus used to hatch eggs or grow microorganisms under controlled conditions. North American a place, especially with support staff and equipment, made available at low rent to new small businesses. At night, peering into the observable universe with shooting stars and galaxies fully arrayed, I often wonder at the other planets, like earth, that must surely abound with life, also populating this infinite space. Sure that the encounter with extraterrestrial life will be accomplished as the beacons humanity rockets towards the outer limits announce our existence. Yet, recently, my guidance is leading me to another possibility. One that is strangely unnerving but has its own logic. That is; we here on earth, are actually the vanguard of life in this universe. We are the first step, and as such, the only sentient, conscious life that has been so accomplished by this magnificent universal life form so far. Ok, let’s focus on this question for a moment. What if the sentient life we are experiencing is the first, fully formed universal life, and we are actually existing within a virtual first cause test tube world, the first life, the advanced life, the incubator of all potential universal life? What if we are really at the beginning of universal time, and we are the evolutionary offspring of a dynamic, living growing universal beingness. An offspring created via controlled evolution, fully equipped with the desire and capability to explore and inhabit the universe. Although we may shutter at the fate of exiting and future life under this scenario, that is, life in the hands of what appears to be, at best, a toddler humanity, a first step is for us to understand our place in this cosmic universal life intention. I have been meditating on this very concept, and while sitting and meditating on my back deck this morning, I could sense the very life energy growing and expanding our existence, always creating, fostering, and supporting life: pushing us forward; never ceasing. The poem below titled New Life, I believe was an initial inspired response to these ruminations. Continue reading

Let us, each today, reaffirm our worthiness, allowing nothing to act as an impediment to the securing of our rightful beingness – the attainment of our genuine, authentic existence. OUR WORTHINESS We are each worthy of living, thriving, being – created to soar, to reach beyond mere existence and touch the heavens – fully capable of transcendence, clarity, and ascendancy – with our full potential waiting to be revealed and unleashed into vibrant being – released and forgiven, without guilt or shame, cherished by universal grace and understanding. We are, each and every one, worthy to be, to love, to express, to touch our genuine, authentic selves, our life given natural purpose, a perfect expression of Godliness, a marvel, a wonder, and integral facet of an evolving and expanding oneness, a life-ness always in the process of becoming. No one, nothing, no thought of guilt or shame, sin or turmoil, has the right or capability of impeding our rightful beingness, our destiny with joy, peace, love, and happiness – our heaven on earth.

We are the physical missionaries of God in this world, the keepers of existence as we know and experience it now. Through our purposeful, mindful action, we are the creators of heaven, and I am afraid, the stokers of a very intense and fiery hell on earth. We are the soft tentacles of God. Let us, today, realize that we must hold fast to the vision of a more worthy being, molding this worthy vision in our hearts, our souls, and in our every single thought: knowing that even one positive thought or gesture will nudge all of us forward.

It is not what we see that hampers our spiritual progress, it is the antiquated lenses we peer through, ground by our years of well meaning indoctrination, tinted by our concepts and supposed truths, distorted by even our epiphanies and peak experiences, producing a cataract generating conglomeration, fogging even the most obvious insights.

OUR EARNEST EFFORT We are mobile creatures in search of our origin, our primal essence, the first cause of our very existence; this search ignites our creative center, as we conjure gods, rulers, myths, magic, wizards, and/or shamans to interpret our place, our possible situation; perhaps to connect with our creator, to return to where we originated, once more. This molten force of will has formed a conjoined intention, given life to this distant, passionate pursuit; overwhelming, unwieldy, forging a consciousness of human longing, a continual cry for our lost place, our desire to be spiritually comforted by our universal, ancestral Mother – Father – the formulator of our beingness. From this earnest effort, we, humankind, manifested a presence, a conscious response, the hoped for overseer, a gentle, engaged strength – a God – a tangible consciousness, a combined soul evolved through and by conflicting views, this presence finds being, and provides love, peace, joy, and happiness – our combined intention.

Although God communicates with us through our own language, expressing in the terms and idioms and icons we most understand: perhaps God’s language, is the first language of sincere expression, primarily vibrational, emotional, intentional as the note below conveys; and we – if we really listen with our full hearts, are capable of translating this communication into our own words and symbols. Perhaps, our literal brainware has been engineered to translate this God message, and does so, if we will intently listen, with faith, for its song. Continue reading

OUR RUMBLE Like a strong, purposeful current, let us approach life with energy, vitality, fully aware of our destination, well able to clear the way when required, or on occasion, flow over, around, or through. Today, let the intention of this current, wake us, ready to flow forward, winding and twisting, pounding when necessary, as our rumble hastens our progress, establishes our momentum. And when our activity proves sufficient, our rest warranted, allow for placid, peaceful moments to solidify the divine connection that fosters our flow, expands our awareness; awakening, as tranquil is mirrored from and through our very being to all adjoining existence.

I am finishing the final editing of what will be the introductory book of a three part FINDING GOD ON THE TRAIN – NOTES ON ENLIGHTENMENT series, this first book titled THE CRYSTAL PATH. I believe this is the best approach for my nearly eight-hundred-page Finding God On The Train writing effort: simply more readable and publishable. Continue reading

Much of my spiritual life is spent listening, and then it is occupied with interpreting and understanding what is being conveyed. At times, there appears to be a theme or concept connecting what I am inspired to write and record. In late March, I received the Meditation Guidance below titled New Ground. NEW GROUND We attach ourselves to the function of things, to the sequence of things, to the process followed, the ritual required, hoping to find structure, concreteness, an order where only fluid change exists – eternity, where only impermanence abides; today let us release our grasp and allow the fiction of control to ease, moving toward looser, more spontaneous paradigms; mindful, aware, stretching each moment by truly being in it, engaged and ultimately unscripted, a free range being, without role, egoless, forsaking the comfortable for new ground, virgin, fertile - requiring the shedding of repetitive being.

OUR DETERMINATION The strength of existence lies in determination, the ability and willingness to continue onward, forward without delay or hesitation, with a sense of hope for what may only be a dim notion, a hunch, an inspiration calling us towards a greater and more potent good; beckoning us.

Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. Mathew 21:22. So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24. Much of New Thought is based on these two quixotic and revolutionary quotes offered by Jesus of Nazaeth, that without question demonstrate his clear and profound comprehension of the very essence of our relationship with God. I believe Jesus would read the guidance I post below, titled Our Tender Grasp, and be in agreement. Continue reading

MANEUVERABILITY The essence of success is maneuverability, making adjustments as needed or desired, shifting course to avoid pitfalls or negative consequences, taking full advantage of positive currents or momentum, open to every advantage, aware of potential possibilities or oversights, hands steady on the wheel, mind strategically fixed on the destination, fully knowing what is intended, with clarity or purpose and performance; keenly transfixed. This maneuverability often is the deciding factor in the overcoming of diversity, the unexpected, the setback, the uncharted delay – assisting with an attitude prepared for counter response and correction – able to think creatively under pressure, to maintain emotional balance, unafraid of risk or consequence, locked and loaded for success – with the face and soul of a living hero, capable and courageous.

The only criterion, in my opinion, for a successful spiritual quest is the ability to foster and maintain an ongoing personal connection/ relationship with the divine. God, I believe, does not care what vehicle we use in order to arrive at this connection, only that we do. So we can chant, pray, sing, meditate, dance, bow, kneel, bounce, be mindful – the method, or path, chosen is not the sole determiner of spiritual success. Only the connection, and this actual connection, again in my opinion, can be accomplished through words, music, dreams, inspirations, voices, signs, signals, visions, imaginings, or the arts – here again, I believe, God is fully flexible, ready, and surely able to communicate in whatever way will best foster this ongoing, personal relationship. With this connection actuated, the poem/note offered below serves as a reminder that we may now be ready to move forward, to ignite our true, authentic passion, to offer our unique contribution, to let our soulful voices, resound.

JOIN US AT OUR MAIN LOCATION www.FindingGodOnTheTrain.com Connect on Twitter @GodOnTheTrain Facebook www.facebook.com/GodOnTheTrain I have been sorting through the poems, affirmative thoughts, and notes I have recorded and published on the blog. Of course, there are many that were written, and then hastily forgotten, failing to catch my notice. The affirmative thought below, that I have now titled Hollow Warrior, seemed to travel through time to grab my attention this morning, carrying a message that startled me, taking my breath away. Perhaps, today, I feel like a hollow warrior, waking each morning to continue a fight that only appears to... Continue reading

BE EXPANSIVE Allow the fresh ideas to flow today, opening your consciousness to the vast possibilities of this existence, be expansive, shun the limitations real or perceived, welcome the inspiration, the input, the guidance available to enhance your efforts, being bold in this exploration, brainstorming with the fullness of infinite intelligence – know you are the conduit for the creative energy of God: so let this force that propels all beingness incite your imagination, let it set flame to your wonder, embolden your claim to magnificence, let it breathe the breath of the everlasting into your perspective; as you grasp the throttle - the thrust of life stretching to soar unhindered.

I reach back to September of 2011 to feature below a previously unpublished note titled Envision Life. I feel this is a practice that I need to master. Honestly, even after studying the greats of New Thought mind control - Mulford, Atkinson, Wattles, Larson, Neville, Troward, and Holmes, to name but a few, I feel my talents in this area are but remedial. Many of us roll our eyes at the thought of actually envisioning and attracting into our lives what we want through strong intention and faith. At the same time, we marvel at the greats who have done just that to improve the world and enrich their own lives. On the flip side, how many of us spend our waking hours in constant contemplation of scarcity, lack, suffering, and loss, only to be taken down by our own focus. It is time to use our cocreative powers to envision a better life for ourselves and humankind. Yes, if you think this is brainwashing you are correct, but I assure the skeptic, after a true assessment of our errant thought patterns, our brains may truly benefit from a scrubbing. Chapter Eleven of Finding God On The Train – The Book , offered on the left hand sidebar of the blog as it is written, titled Mind Control Approaches and Techniques covers the art of envisioning in-depth. So, let us use our thoughts to sculpt and improve our lives. To grab reality and mold it in our favor. Continue reading

“It’s a sure thing.” This is a phrase that often makes me chuckle, for all the times I have heard it used in business, only to discover it was anything but a “sure thing.” We human beings are created to be innately suspicious, it is the quality most likely to have ensured our continued existence. A sure thing is what we least expect, and the use of it often makes us think of the mountebank preparing to fleece us. Continue reading

After months of reading modern philosophy to support my own theory of God Consciousness, I have been drawn back to explore the rationality of the message of Finding God On The Train, perhaps to provide it with a more coherent and understandable framework. Two key terms – being and beingness – are at the core of what I believe I am tasked to convey. First, you and me and all sentient existence provide the essence of what I would refer to as - “conscious being,” that is, each individuated being to some degree has been provided some actual awareness: with us human beings having, thanks to our language capability and our expandable brains, the most refined and defined capacity.

This morning, while meditating and attempting to focus my mind, which was fixated on all the projects and efforts I have yet to complete or finish, I began to shuffle through the images and impressions of the year, and a question captured my attention; simply put the question asked: Have you grown this year?

The note below titled Pilot Light is one of my favorite Holiday messages. Perhaps, the true meaning of enlightenment is not experiencing “the light,” but instead, being the light itself. Hopefully, this holiday season will find our lights, both individually and collectively, shining bright. Continue reading

Is the true gift of Christmas one of possibility, one of the potential to be so much more than we now manifest in our often struggling human race? The note below proclaims this to be so, offering us three gifts, that if properly received would truly bring us all great joy. Continue reading

The existence of a Universal God Consciousness has a basis in reality, and is supported by the theoretical and research work of both the scientific and metaphysical communities - and as a result, is considered tenable by leading experts in the study of human consciousness. To prove the validity of my hypothesis – the existence of a Universal God Consciousness - we will need to travel through time and harness the support of philosophers, scientists and the mystics alike, thus presenting theoretical, experiential, and research support from psychology, physics, biology, philosophy, theology, along with metaphysics – which may enable and allow us, using a Rumi phrase, “to peak beneath the skirt of God.” This is our mission – so where do we start. I will offer what my train guidance has revealed to date, along with the theory I have developed to support my hypothesis, but first, we must understand what human thought, aggregated and categorized as philosophy, science, metaphysics, and the arts, has to say about God consciousness.

Life itself is a cycle of becoming, then being, then shedding what must be let go to make way for what may be waiting on the path ahead. This cycle exists within each sentient entity and, I believe, is the very fabric of nature from the minute to the magnificent – this cyclic force propels us forward to greater growth and potentials.

The message of Finding God On The Train has centered on the ability of each one of us to connect with God directly and personally; tapping into what we might envision as an eternal broadcast, set to connect with whomever breaks through and listens - much like the communication we earthlings rocket into distant space, hoping to connect with whom or whatever. In reality, I believe this consciousness based, prevailing message, is more personally tailored to the individual listener. The Quakers have actually centered their faith and worship around this concept of a direct personal connection with God. I do feel this is, and may remain, a point of contention and confusion with many of our more mature religious orientations. So with this post, I offer some additional guidance in hopes of aiding those who are actively in pursuit of the “still small voice,” by amplifying some of the subtleties of this interaction, at least based on my personal guidance received over the first-half of this October 2016. First, as conveyed by this Affirmative Thought below, we must understand our own sweet spot: Continue reading
