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.
The 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.
Just like the way the sun can melt a 10,000 year old glacier in Glacier National Park so can unconditional love melt and change the frozen misconceptions of the subconscious.
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.
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!
