- "Traditionally, religion has looked on the world
of natural science as opposed to the world of Spirit, but paradoxically,
today, it is the world of science that is unwittingly preparing human thought
for this breakthrough, by uncovering the ephemeral nature of matter at
it's basic levels, and showing the relationship between mind and matter.
This makes it easier to concieve of a mental or a transcendent reality.
Thought is more prepared to consider the spiritual foundations of theology,
and eventually to connect with the creative governing intelligence of the
universe, that we call God." Mindpower and The Spiritual Dimension"

- We are all aware of the many trials and tribulations
that our world is presently experiencing. Evil, in the form of pollution,
crime, hatred, greed, and moral decline, seems to be increasing in proportion
to the current materialistic outlook. It would seem then that the remedy
for these ills is not more materialism, but a looking away from matter
towards Spirit, towards the true nature of our relationship to the Infinite
Source of All Being. This wouldn't mean that we ignore our present basic
material needs but when we turn to the "Divine Mind", the Collective
Conciousness, or Spirit (God), whatever term one wants to use, then, and
only then will we find true, practical and lasting solutions which would
benefit everyone involved. I've seen this principle demonstrated and therefore
know it to be true.
- Einstein once said that anyone studying physics long
enough is inevitably led into metaphysics.
- The original Webster's Dictionary defines metaphysics
as the science of the principles and causes of all things existing; hence,
the science of mind or intelligence.
- Christ was the greatest metaphysician. Through his miracles
he proved the supremacy of Spirit over matter. He showed us by His works
that there are spiritual laws, which are above material laws, that govern
the universe , and when understood, they can be demonstrated as dependable,
practical and absolute.
- Quantum physics has come to the realization that , basically,
there is no matter. It is believed that the seeming reality of our material
world is nothing more than the extension or manifestation of our thinking.
Thought produces energy and energy produces mass. Several great religions
have acknowledged this concept all along. Now, physics is coming to the
- Sir James Jeans wrote "We live in a gossamer universe;
pattern, plan and design are there in abundance, but solid substance is
rare." "Even the elements of the atom itself are only waves of
energy void of solid substance. The particles of the atom have no more
tangible substance than a thought or a feeling. Gradually matter as a
solid thing, has vanished from our concept of the universe - replaced by
a basic atomic unit, composed of space and non material charges of energy.
This non material nature of the atom is a most essential point in relating
the physical universe to the Spiritual Dimension." "The Spiritual
Dimension"....by Ann Beals
- Many people, including myself, at times, see modern technology
as a threat to our freedom and even our health. Everything that man seems
to create can be used for good or evil purposes. So, it really isn't the
technology that is the problem but it is the thinking behind it. Maybe
instead of dreading, fretting, and worrying...and perhaps creating the
very reality we fear, we should try and view certain technological developements,
such as frequency medicine, computors, cellphones, security cameras, television,
micropchips....even the ability to control the weather, as a step toward
overcoming the seeming limitations of the material world. When we see a
trend towards using these technologies for nefarious purposes, each and
everyone of us can always turn to the One Supreme Intelligence for harmonious
- A friend once said to me, "Piece by piece, everything
human beings have trusted is being revealed as completely untrustworthy:
governments (services), finance (capital), industries (goods), schools,
media, entertainment, medicine, etc. Everything with which we use to organize
socially and politically is being stripped of value and rendered useless
for anything but control through intimidation, coercion and indoctrination.
We will have nothing upon which to rely for self preservation or social
and political identity. Everything that humanity has willed into being
is being used to ensnare us into consenting to slavery. We can not "will"
this situation away. We can only surrender to God.
- We can only empty our will to God's will, to God's Love
and allow God's love to transform us. Once we are transformed with God
at the concious center of our lives, the world and it's affairs will be
transformed by the energy of love, which is infinite and always there.
- So , this is our task: to surrender our will, to allow
God's love to fill us and overflow into our world. This and this alone
is how the world is changed. "
- It is clear to me that our world needs a different approach.
This approach, that many are recommending, is not some ethereal head in
the clouds type of approach but it is the same potent and loving approach
demonstrated by Christ Jesus. He certainly wasn't wishy washy in his methods.
He commanded the waves to be still and the storm to cease. He did cast
out the money changers in the temple. He raised the dead. He healed withered
limbs, fed the five thousand with only a few loaves and fishes, turned
water into wine and passed through angry crowds unseen. He said "I
of mine own self can do nothing, it is the Father in heaven that doeth
the works"....and again, promised that we could do the same. The
same power that was available to Him, is available to all mankind throughout
all eternity. I believe this was one of Christ's most profound teachings
to humanity. Many feel that Christ's crucifixion was not an example of
defeat but that his resurrection was the supreme demonstration of the unreality
of matter. He proved that Life is eternal and doesn't depend on material
- There is concern today that because we are seemingly
composed of energy or certain types of frequencies, that our true nature
can be manipulated ( through energy weapons), by those who wish to control.
If we take a step back for a moment and look at this objectively, we will
perhaps come to the conclusion that the seeming "powers that be"
are trying to create fear and that it is really only the fear itself that
we have to fear. Fear closes us off to our connection to God. God is spiritual.
He is all good and he encompasses ALL. "In Him we live and move and
Have our being". The Bible says we are made in His image and likeness.
Therefore, we are also spiritual. Spirit is the opposite of matter. The
two are totally separate. One cannot affect the other. In fact, if Spirit
( God ) is ALL then, like physics is now saying, there is no matter. Therefore,
even energy is a form of thought. Ultimately material energy has no power
over our true being....once we realize this. And this can translate into
protection here and now. God/Good is the only power in control...but we
have to acknowledge this, feel it and know it before we can see it becoming
evident in our experience.
- I would like to close with several paragraphs from "The
Spiritual Dimension" by Ann Beals
- " I began my search during the gentle world of the
fifties - a world that has since given way to revolutionary changes. A
new society has emerged, one that has shattered the values and ethics of
the past, overturned educational and cultural patterns, changed business,
government and economy. While we recognize that many of these changes
threaten the future of humanity, there appears to be no solutions to them.
There are no simple or immediate answers to the complex problems we face.
But this does not mean there are no answers. In time we will discover
that an understanding of the structure and content of the spiritual dimension
will provide answers to those problems that are beyond the realm of science
and technology. The discovery of this spiritual dimension marks the end
of one age and the beginning of another. This new age will meld together
science and religion into one harmonious whole, and transform the world
conciousness. It will fulfill the prophecy of John in Revelation, when
he wrote of the coming of a "new heaven and a new earth".
- "I thought of this "new heaven and new earth
early one morning as I waited for the sun to rise. Outside my window there
was only the silent night. The winds whispered. The clouds drifted by.
Nothing seemed to change. Then a soft light began to dawn, outlining
various forms in deep shades of gray. The first rays of the dawn brought
an iridescent glow to everything. Then the sun rose, revealing a landscape
that was beautiful, complete, perfect in every detail - and yet so hidden
in the darkness a short time ago. The change was effortless. In this
transformation, the dawn had not created a thing. It had only brought
to light that which already existed. As I watched this transformation,
I thought, "How so like the coming of this earth's Spiritual Age."
