Free will or determinism?

Many societies regard free will as a human right, where we are free to determine our destiny. But there are some that feel everything is predetermined by unknown causes, where our birth to death is already set and there is nothing to do about it other than enjoy the ride in between! Which is reality – free will or determinism?

Another dimension 

Evidence is that things are determined about us before we are even born into this incarnation. Our DNA, genes and cell memories are programmed determining our physical characteristics like sex, eye color, etc. Since we are born with programming of our DNA and genes, it’s possible that the time of  our birth and perhaps even the time of our physical death are also predetermined by some unknown causes.

Yet, the unknown causes of these programs could actually be our own choices as souls with the help of the Great Principle and Unconditional Love! If we can make choices in one dimension then according to the Law of Analogy, we can in other dimensions.

This dimension 

 After birth we are mentally and emotionally conditioned by the collective human subconscious by our families, environment and society at large. We are conditioned because of the naïveté of our individual consciousness. We are ignorant about how this works….. how we co-create our dualistic, human reality ….. about how we’ve made it with Unconditional Love with the help of our Father.

The Great Principle is the Creator and IT also backs us up as we use our will to shape conditions for outcomes in Universal Laws like Attraction, Cause and Effect, Polarity, Gender, Rhythm. But in that creation we can get lost in the collective human subconsciousness.

Yet we are very capable of knowing ourselves and living in the present moment unattached  ….. observe ourselves uninvolved in past emotional attachments and conditioning. We can learn to elevate our consciousness and recognize temptations like fear, anger, and envy ….. then release them before we cycle in them again. 

What it takes ….

This process of overcoming our mental naïveté  requires courage and a higher level of consciousness. I say courage because we usually observe things about ourselves that are not pretty!

I was surprised when I realized that I carried conditioning of anger unnoticed, because I am a relatively calm person. When any temptation of anger crops-up  now I release it and the fear behind it or redirect the anger for positive motivation. Then I surrender to Unconditional Love.

The ego would feel very justified to feed on negative emotional energies like anger, fear and envy. Yet our Real Self, which is the spark of the Eternal within, inspires us to reach for higher levels of consciousness like courage, compassion and goodwill. These emotions are ours in the present moment when we willingly choose them!

Release and surrender ….

When we train ourselves and strengthen our will to choose higher levels of consciousness we are on the cutting edge of mental mastery and physical reality. We attract more of the same uplifting energies and destroy negative impulses within ourselves ….. and hence we co-create a more harmonious reality. 

And when we add to our conscious practice contact with the Great Field of Universal Life Energy, we are contacting all Power and Harmony to help. That Harmony burns away fear, negative programing and conditioning bit by bit.

What’s it about …..

We can view our destiny from both perspectives  – free will choices and determinism.We are born with certain characteristics, DNA and genes. Our preprogramming and egotistic conditioning can block us from our True Self and harmonious reality. Yet ….. by developing our mental awareness and free will we can recognize and release egotistic conditioning as in determinism. And with that same free will we can choose to manifest higher levels of consciousness aligned with the FourSquare …. Strength, Intelligence, Truth and Love.  

To learn how to easily recognize and remove blocks to higher levels of consciousness consider:

Potent Pratice – Self Analysis! 

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“Analysis of Fear, its nature and causes, is one of the vital points in Mental Science, because in Fear is comprehended the entire problem of all the negative. When you overcome that, you kill at a blow the hydra-headed monster which leers out in the thousand and one ills and diseases of Body, Mind and Emotions.”

With hatred comes ….. spiritual opportunity

For those of us that are conscious of being on our spiritual journey, we realize that these are dangerous times. Not necessarily because of unrest and violence ….. or even of sickness and physical death from a virus ….. though they are real physical dangers  …. the danger lies in being seduced by frustration, fear and hatred ….. of getting mentally and emotionally lost in the collective subconscious ego.

Deliberate, impersonal attitude ….. caring motivation

You’ve heard that song that goes, “I can’t get no satisfaction!”…. That frustration has become very public. Frustration is like the match that has ignited a wildfire of hatred! The narcissistic ego has gotten frustrated with conditions ….. conditions of restrictions with the virus ….. and conditions of restrictions in society ….. blaming others has ignited a wildfire of hatred.

And that wildfire is greedy …. spreading ….. jumping …. fanning more problems. Motivated by hatred, the infantile ego makes demands and feels entitled to express its frustration with rebellion and violence ….. without consideration of others ….. or consequences!

In the subconscious’ perversion of love ….. the criminal becomes the victim ….. the police become the criminal aggressors instead of the protectors in the eyes of self-righteousness. Having been born of ignorance, pride and impatience, the subconscious ego feeds its own imperfections, causing havoc.

Fighting against hatred or being sympathetic feeds hatred

Shortcomings within the ego can be seduced by the false empowerment of hatred ….  and can be tempted to join the bandwagon! Yes, we should fight ….. we should fight for what we love ….. with a sense of calm, sincere Love. 

Hatred is challenge ….  and it can become a catalyst to align with our Inner freedom, strength and Unconditional Love. Love is the Great Harmonizer ….. strong, wise and compassionate. 

Fight for what we Love

We can be Lighthearted ….. give the gift of a smile for the stranger we pass. Do acts of kindness. Be sincere and motivated by love rather than fear. This is living a conscious heart. Mind and Love are aligned.

Being in the present moment and conscious of Presence ….. of being One with the Great Field of Universal Life Energy ….. and manifesting FourSquare qualities in all that we do  …… we attract more of the same energies  contributing to not only our own health and happiness, but everyone’s.

Healing and growth …

Can spring from knowing ourselves …. the good, the bad, the ugly. Self-analysis as taught in Lesson 12 of the 27 Lesson in Science of Being is a wonderful practice ….. especially for emotional, social challenging conditions like those we face today.

Recognizing our individual shortcomings can give us an inner sense of integrity and diminished defensiveness, and therefore, we are emotionally less vulnerable and more likely to actively construct a progress reality.

Consciously expand and rise up ….

A society’s fall can come from moral decay within. The infantile ego drives on the cynical drama of hatred. The subconscious ego ….. perverts  love ….. abuses ….. social freedom and progressive intents with moral decay, lacking the ability to reason or use common sense.

Face the challenge

We are challenged to live a conscious and compassionate life! A few Beings manifesting compassionate and loving attitudes and actions out weighs, so to speak, multitudes of infantile egos and hatred. 

It’s an opportunity to set our spiritual will ….. choose to be focused in our sincerity and intent to establish Harmony within ….. to FourSquare things ….. set things right

The more we are Sincere and use our spiritual will to align with Truth ….. put Truth into our thinking, attitudes and behaviors ….. the more Spiritual we are.

There are 2 questions we can ask ourselves to simplify things

Photo by Jack Winbow on Pexels.com

One thought leads to other thoughts, leading to heightened emotions in stressful situations. Self-Analysis is one of the most beneficial practices on a spiritual journey because we are going deeper within conscious awareness to observe manifested mind …. come to understand ourselves ….. and be on the leading edge of  creating our own destiny.

The human subconscious ego doesn’t like to release any thought ….. it wants to follow the story ….. and thrives on drama! Our Higher Self always allows Love to lead ….. and we are able to consciously do this too.

There are 2 questions we can ask ourselves to simplify things:

#1 Is this thought beneficial?     

  •  Is it optimistic? Uplighting? Dismal? Oppressive?
  • Constructive? Leading to opportunities for happiness?
  • Inspiring? Encouraging? Insightful?

#2 – Where does this thought lead?

  • Does it lead to more negative, unhelpful thoughts …. possibility creating some harmful, fearful effects?
  • Or lead to more positive, useful thoughts that can create positive, constructive effects in reality? Is it calming, giving an insightful perspective ….?
  • Does it lead to negative feelings, attitudes, or moods?  Leading to anxiety, worry, jealousy ….. ?
  • Or to uplifting, joyful attitudes? Does have an atmosphere of humor? Enjoyment, confidence, happiness ….?

Such as …

Harsh judgment is a red flag …. a danger …. because of where it can lead. If I am tempted to judge someone as treating me unjustly, I focus inward rather than outward towards the other person.

It’s about what I will allow and my intent to create a happy reality for myself …. and others. I intent to start a positive cause …. get out ahead of any negative temptation.

I come to consciously realize that …. it was an unhelpful thought …. and it could very easily lead to more unhelpful thoughts ….. and emotions like resentment, revenge and even hatred.

Such judgment comes from fear ….. draws from fear within the subconscious ego.

I say to myself, “I reject inner thoughts of harsh judgment. Negative judgments are powerless to infect any other thoughts of fear!”

An amazing transformation can overcome you at this stage of your intent! I am no longer tempted to fear. Love is freed from the walls of the ego and attracts all that can assist me. I focus consciousness on positive, constructive thoughts and cohere thoughts with uplifting emotions and attitudes ….

Love becomes a motivating power …. an magnet attracting more of the same energies. It is living. the Law of Love ,,,, the Law of Attraction.

Yet there is a deeper value in Self-Analysis.

Why wouldn’t we get what we want so badly?

Photo PSLB 

Most of us believe if we were beautiful, thin or rich then we would be acceptable, be liked, be loved ….  and be happy …. we would get that ideal partner ….. that perfect job, etc. So we might start trying to improve outward, on the physical plane…. but still we may not start to improve inward, on the mental and emotional planes to harmonize our thoughts and attitudes.

Eventually we may give up ….

thinking it’s too complicated …. because even when we do the physical work and put positive, uplifting thoughts in our subconscious …. we still may not get what we want so badly!.

And we wonder why? …. Something in the subconscious opposes it …. beliefs …. criticisms …. thoughts …. emotions …. energies that have grown unnoticed …. and in conflict with our goals.

Universal Life Energy can purify the subconscious ….

and eliminate conflicted, negative energies in the subconscious. Therefore, visualize and realize Universal Life Energy purifying the Solar Plexus, the seat of the subconscious … and remember that there also are all the latent, pure qualities of the Superconsciousness within the subconscious.

The above practice in Science of Being is known as the FERTILIZATION EXERCISE. We are adding to Truth in our own subconscious. That positive, empowering thought will eventually, if not immediately, return to our consciousness and …. our reality with the help of the Great Law. 

When we purify the fertile ground of the subconscious …. the power of our Imagination and the Law of Attraction can attract those positive, like energies to manifest in our reality, instead of attracting negative energies.

Aligning with the Law of Life, of Mind, of Truth, of Love to create your Happiness!


Photo PSLB

WE are all governed by Law and …. our alignment with Law, Universal Law …. is the key to our Happiness. So this entry is a simple reminder for myself and all of You that are here and Now to take the opportunity to become conscious, alert and engaged in creating our own happiness!

According to Universal Law …. there are only degrees of ‘good!’

LIFE, MIND, TRUTH, LOVE, SPIRIT IS ALL IN ALL ….

This is called the Law of Spirit or Unity in Science of Being.

When we are in harmony with the Law of Life, Law of Mind, Law of Truth, Law of Love and Law Of Spirit … each one as important as the other and balanced with the others …. we establish harmony in the moment and are creating a cause for our future moments.  

Law of Life

The Law of Life is doing our duty at the right moment … being enthusiastic, energetic, strong …. realizing that we are One and inseparable with All Life.

Law of Mind

The Law of Mind is the call to be Self Conscious, aware of living in multiple dimensions …. conscious of living in the visible world of Matter and the invisible universe of Spirit.

Realize we are One with Cosmic Consciousness … aware of levels of mind, emotions, behaviors …. of Superconsciousness, Consciousness and subconsciousness within us.

Organize our day, yet not get fixed or caught up in detail.

Law of Truth

The Law of Truth is to always be honest and say what we mean, keeping our promises. Being sincere.

We should look at the big picture, simplify our life without getting drowned in details. Always accurate without assuming.

Stand for Truth in our life. Create within and manifest Truth in our reality. And realize we are One with All Truth …. All Law.

Law of Love

Living the Law of Love is to meet everyone and every situation with Love leading us. That is …. love impersonally and as unconditionally as possible …. without living in past personal histories.

Live manifesting Love from our Hearts, our Seat of Love. For more link Conscious Heart Practice.

The Law of Love is The Law of Attraction. We attract those energies of what we put out with our thoughts, attitudes and behaviors …. hence conscious FourSquare, loving intents add to our betterment and others.

And when we realize we are One with All Love …. we are One with the Soul of the Universe.

Law of Spirit

The Law of Spirit is the Law of Unity …. realize the best we can that we are One with each other … One with All Beings …. and One with the Infinite Universe, One with Universal Life Energy. Cosmic Intelligence, The Great Law and Infinite Love, also known as the FourSquare

In the hope You express Universal Law in every moment, PortiaSLB

It’s is a simple fight ….


2020 Photo copyright: PSLB

It’s is a simple fight ….between the subconscious and our Higher Self.

Always fight for what you Love. That is the simplest thing.

Fight for what is FourSquare rather than against what we think is evil or negative.

Fight using the FourSquare …. being FourSquare.  Love leads us when we are FourSquare. Fight with All Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love.  It will always raise us up.

The subconscious holds on to the pass and grows both negative and positive thoughts and energies …. growing them into beliefs and stubborn, fixed self-righteousness.

The subconscious will doubt we can do a thing …. try to discourage us and make us feel pressured and rushed. Deny that any negative has any power over you because ….

Without a doubt you can handle what is before you.

Have Faith that there is a way to rise above any challenge  because there is nothing Universal Law puts before us that we cannot do. And …. You have all the Power of the Universal backing You. 

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

Inner Gender balance practices; It’s not only about sex; The Law of Gender, Part 3

Antonio Mora_Dreaming Bridges_signature

When someone pushes our buttons …. and we automatically react with impatience, anger, jealously and verbally or physically attack …. it’s more about us than it is them! When we exhibit crippling anxiety, never-ending worry, or feel like we don’t belong in this world, like I have felt …. then it’s most likely due to conditioning ….. and our genders have become out of balance.

We are 2 Genders

Physically we manifest the Law of Gender as being man or woman in our present state of consciousness, but on the mental plane we express both genders …. the male Self-consciousness and the female Sub-consciousness. And this is what we are to work out …. to bring our 2 genders into harmony ….. to round out our character out, making us strong, independent, successful and happy beings. 

Fundamentally our mental/emotional Male gender expresses as enthusiasm, intelligence, self reliance …. and our Female mental/emotional expresses as gentleness, intuition, patience and love. 

Consider these practices below that I have found very beneficial in my own journey to blend and harmonize the mental feminine and masculine genders. The goal is …. to elevate the frequency of the feminine mental subconsciousness to be …. conscious of Love. 

Balancing Practices

1. See the best

I always had an aversion towards positive thinking in my early years. I had gotten comfortable and in a habit with choosing fear and used to focusing on negativity like worry, loneliness, resentment, depression and sadness.

All that negative energy can keep us frozen and acting like a victim, rather than being in the moment. Yet …. in essence fearful emotions and thinking are opportunities to align with Love within ourselves.

Thus …. go out of your comfort zone …. and make a conscious effort …. to see the best in the moment.  Acknowledge the best in yourself and see the best in others, especially during challenging conditions.

We must dare to act and create our happiness …. by aligning with positive energy. Think goodwill, generous, caring thoughts ….. that can grow into goodwill, generous, caring behaviors.

We are negating fear and stepping towards Love, our inner emotional feminine gender, and attracting more positive energy.

2. In the moment

Our most beneficial and useful tool to balance our genders to counteract and release conditioning is to be conscious! Aware. conscious and, in the moment.

Being conscious is guarding the entry to the subconscious! Without more negative thoughts entering the subconscious, it raises in frequency bit by bit …. and any latent positive energies in the subconscious gestate …. to return to our consciousness and reality. 

3. Breathe Light & Universal Life Energy

Universal Life Energy harmonizes and balances our inner genders.

A simple, yet very powerful mental gender balancing exercise:

A uneasy thought, flows. Be conscious, mindful. Acknowledge it and let it continue to flow from you, visually blowing it out as dark smoke, exhaling. Breathe in deeply the Light of Universal Life Energy and let It permeate your body, brain and mind, being mindful, conscious and grateful for your authentic power to consciously choose Love and release fear. 

Universal Life Energy is the first physical manifestation of the Eternal and naturally balances our genders, mind and love, heart and brain, masculine and feminine qualities.

Other exercises to contact the Force: the Star Exercise and the Mental Contact.

4. Meditation

In meditation we can release our attachment to negative emotional memories in the subconscious ego. We can receive inspirations to embrace enthusiasm for the present and create opportunities for our happiness.

 5. Nature

Be outside in nature as often as your Higher Self inspires you. Let your body and aura naturally synchronize with that of the earth’s frequencies and that of the universe. The trees, plants and air all emit harmonizing energies and help you synchronize your own inner masculine and feminine energies and chakras. 

When we are around other people our auras and energies interact, push and pull on each other; we manipulate each other. So being in nature we can naturally re-balance our feminine and masculine energies that flow in our body and aura.

We are all on our spiritual journey and have opportunities to grow and raise our consciousness to include Love. Yet, we have to each make our own efforts, as do I. I’ve had help in spiritual teachers. And, so do You! Your great teacher is your Higher Self. Listen.

 In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

A State of Mind

 A State of Mind

We should try to develop the love of Beauty, which is at the foundation of our being.”  Eugene Fersen

It’s amazing how the beauty and power of Alaska can be captured on an iPad! Yet, it is also amazing that there is so much beauty in this world to enjoy. It out weights the dross. And, everything, everything – says something about our earthly condition. It speaks to us in deep and profound ways and all we have to do is be conscious and aware of it.

The Law of Analogy is such a powerful law to help us understand ourselves and of great benefit for those on a conscious spiritual journey. The law Itself is beautiful.

Glacier MeltThe different states of water can be used to symbolize the different states of mind. The liquid state is like the lively, discriminating consciousness, while the frozen state is like the fixed ideas, beliefs and habitual behavioral patterns of subconsciousness.

The subconscious freezes and imprisons the beauty and Love of Mind, dominating our emotions and behaviors with traits like irritability, worry, guilt or greed if we let it. 

Being frozen is hell for us, because the Great Law says Life is constant vibration, change and gradual evolution.

Just like the way the sun can melt a 10,000 year old glacier in Glacier National Park so can unconditional Love of Universal Life Energy melt and change the frozen misconceptions of the subconscious. 

We may think we don’t like change, but everything else about us says that we do. That’s an analogy that can help us be courageous in challenging situations!

With Light and Love, Portia SLB

Do we really need a conscience?

Photo: PSLB

When two children accompanied their mom shopping they saw a popular miniature doll that they wanted because of the egg packaging it came in, saying it was so fun open. The mom told them no.  But when they all got home, the mom discovered the children had taken it anyway, having hidden it in their backpack …. unpaid

We all make mistakes

Some of us develop a conscience that hurts when we feel like we have done something wrong. The conscience is a process that kicks in thoughts and emotions of remorse that are in contrast to our moral values.

But here’s the thing …. some of us don’t have a conscience or at less don’t listen to our conscience. And our conscience is not necessarily based in reason, rather in conditioning of culture, civilization, religion, doctrine, and judicial laws.

As children we are usually conditioned in morals by family, society, and religion ….And as we grow our morals and conscience grow also ….  but …. so does the subconscious ego.  And subconscious desires can dominate reasoning and morals …. thus mistakes like shoplifting are made.

Are we conscious?

That question above …. that’s the question we have to ask ourselves. Are we conscious? ….And do we need a conscience?

Adults are more likely to feel like our conscience hurts when we’ve done something ‘wrong’ …. because we have been repeatedly conditioned in morals.  That process of conscience makes us feel remorse. Yet …. consider this …. would we need a conscience if we listened to and behaved according to our Real Self …. to our Superconsciousness?

Our Higher Self does not need a conscience. But ….. our conscious self does …. or at least, at this time in our development. The hurt our conscience inflicts on us can help us …. by pointing to a mistake …. to make us Conscious!

We can grow by learning from our mistakes …. when we are conscious. The subconscious ego doesn’t listen to the conscience because we would have to be conscious. And subconscious desires imprisons conscious reasoning and the conscience.

We have become busy shaking our heads side to side as in ‘no’ and as in confusion …. Fear dominates us so much of the time that our Conscious Self has become too busy to look up to our Higher Self.

We can so easily go berserk …. leaving behind common sense, logic and the good sense to listen to and follow our intuition …. the guidance of our Higher Self and Soul.

Yet there is hope ….

Reason and experience …. when supported by our Higher Self …. are the saving elements in our life.  

The FourSquare is The Great Principle …. as a standard we can use to ask ourselves questions  to awaken our consciousness …. Is our response Enthusiastic? Wise? Accurate? and Loving? And are we conscious, aware, alert in the moment …. observant without attachment?

And let’s remember friendship ….

Shouldn’t we learn to be friendly with ourselves, especially our Higher Selves ….. and with others? Consider ourselves with Love …. as being surrounded by the Eternal as Universal Life Energy, Wisdom, Truth, Love, Spirit in every moment …. indissolubly connected to the Great Principle …. and a ray of IT. Do we see qualities of ourselves in others? Do we see the Absolute twinkling brightly through the eyes of others?

That mom …. perhaps she had a conscience that hurt …. or …. she listened to her Higher Self and did what she could to harmonize the situation by encouraging her children to be conscious and experience the reasoning of the FourSquare. And by being those qualities herself.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB
