Metaphysically speaking a Divine Idea is behind the creation of everyone and everything. Many people interpret the scriptures as a literal manifestation and that is fine, however perhaps it should be considered also as ideation, the creating of new ideas and thoughts in the human mind. Consider Genesis as representation of origin, the beginning. Genesis as the first book of the Bible describes the beginning;
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
The very first verse has God(Creator) creating heavens, not one heaven but plural heavens. God is that consciousness which resides in each and everyone. Heavens metaphysically represent the ideas in mind and the Earth is the metaphysical manifestation of those ideas. In the beginning the Earth was void without form and dark then God said let there be light and there was light. When we are faced with any situation it is the beginning there may be a void as to how to solve a situation. With human intelligence we are gifted with the ability to call forth the light.
“God is mind, and all God’s works are created in mind as perfect ideas”stated Charles Fillmore.This statement is very important and is in alignment with the metaphysical principle “thoughts in mind create in kind”. What a great concept! It has been said wherever the attention of the mind goes, that’s where the power goes, propelling the perceived intention to fruition. The mind can create a motivating factor from nothing and a stimulus to achieve the desired result. It seems such a simple concept, yet our present society may have complicated it collectively. Television programming has a great influence and often the news appears to be primarily negative, planting thoughts of fear, anger and poverty in the minds of those that watch it. Race consciousness is molded in part by mass communication. Based the outward projections of the conscious mind we formulate opinions, perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, and ideas. Lack of discernment in the awareness of what we feed our mind subjects many to the probability that what we hear on the news is being imprinted in our subconscious. The subconscious does not process thoughts, it is called memory and doesn’t know right from wrong. This is another reason it is not good to go to bed with the television on. Without consciously paying attention to what you are watching and hearing it is possible to pick up subliminal messages that may imprint negative thoughts into the mind. Often the subconscious has stored valuable memory that can aid in healing. It is important to note the subconscious vault holds a wealth of information. Dr. Brian Weiss is a leading expert in past last regression therapy. The regression process has the ability to relax the mind, thereby allowing memories to surface for processing and ultimately healing many symptoms. The mind is powerful!
It is written that whatever is pure, good and happy we should think on these things. This would serve to establish a foundation of good thoughts in mind that would be hard to penetrate with negativity.
