Spirituality and Self-Help

by Dr. Bobbie Stevens on December 6, 2010

Last week we saw a movie on DVD entitled The Answer Man. It was a good movie.  It was rated R due to some bad language, but it was most interesting.  It was about a man who wrote a self-help book entitled God and Me. His book had been very popular over many years, but he had become a recluse because he had been so bombarded with people wanting to ask him questions.  The public believed that he talked with God.  He felt that he had to protect himself, so no one knew where he lived, and he refused to speak or do book signings even though his agent kept urging him to make public appearances.

He had bought all kinds of books on personal growth and spirituality and was trying to get his questions answered, and he was trying to get the local book store to buy them back.  They couldn’t buy the books because they were going broke, but the owner discovered who he was, so he agreed to take some books if the author would answer some of his questions.  The author agreed and provided him with some very valuable insights.

Finally the author decided to do a book signing at the local book store to keep them in business.  He actually had decided to tell the people that he could not talk to God.  He wanted his life back, so in his talk he explained that his father had very ill and had passes away.  He was so devastated and had so many questions that he started writing his questions down.  As he continued his search for the answers to his questions some answers begin to come to him.  He wrote them down, and his agent saw them and believed they should put them in a book.  She believed that they could help others.  She was right it changed the lives of many people.

That is how his book God and Me came to be. When the people heard this they were very upset to find out that he too had questions just like they did.

The underlying message that I got from this movie is that we all can talk to God, just by becoming quite and listening or more accurately by developing our intuitive abilities.  Everything becomes so much clearer once we understand that God is not an old man with a long white beard sitting up in the sky, blessing some people and punishing others.  God is love, and the universe is governed by laws of nature or principles of life, which work the same for all of us.  This brings us to the first law of nature that we work with in the Unlimited Futures courses, which states that “Everything in existence is Love expressing intelligently through energy”.

Once we understand that everything on the physical level of life is energy, and that energy is being moved and formed by intelligence, we can begin to understand the nature of creation.  In our individual worlds it is our thoughts or deepest beliefs that move and form energy into our experiences.  There is simply a field of intelligence and all of us have some access to it.  How much access we have to it, depends on the density of the energy that makes up our minds and bodies.

We can refine the energy of our mind/body system by releasing the stress that keeps that energy dense or volatile.   That then makes it possible for us to settle down to a place of peace, stillness and silence.  This refines our energy to where we can merge our conscious awareness with universal intelligence (all knowledge).  At this point we begin to know our oneness with everything.  We begin to understand that “Everything in existence is Love expressing intelligently through energy”.  As we know ourselves as one with this wholeness we have opened the pathway to intuitively knowing.  We have developed our own ability to talk with God.

Many years ago I discovered a process for releasing stress, strengthening the nervous system and refining the energy that makes up our minds and bodies.  I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book on Personal Growth. I have also created a CD, DVD and a Companion Workbook to help you get started working with this process.

In addition we now have our Personal Growth and Development Core Course on DVDs, so one can experience the entire course in the comfort of your own home.  We have also prepared an introductory session of the course which you can download free. Be sure to check it out before leaving the site.
