Greetings friends the world over! Is God overbearing and arrogant when He desires we pray that His will be done in our lives? It may surprise you that God’s will is more about your overall well being and welfare, than it is about His own self-glorification. In this post, I want to show you that’s indeed the case when Jesus taught us to pray “Thy Will be Done.” (Matt.6:10; Vs. 5-13) 

Two Perspective to Life – “Solitary” and “Triune”

There are two ways to look at this prayer: we can look at it from a “solitary” perspective and conclude God is a solitary Being who is self-obsessed, insensitive, self-loving, and concerned only about Himself in His egocentric world. On the other hand, we can view it through the prism of His Trinitarian nature of Love, through the “Triune” perspective and ask, why is it that He desires His will to be influential in all we do? Two different perspectives, with two different conclusions – obviously! “God is Love,” (1John 4:8) so it’s impossible for God to be self-serving and self-loving, because Love is outgoing, self-giving, and wants the best for others. He is Love because He is “Triune” and not “solitary” in His existence as God. From eternity the Father, Son, and Spirit have treasured their relationship in self-giving, self-sacrificing Love for each other that they are considered One in substance of Love, not three. Stephen Seamonds says this in his book, Ministry in the Image of God, “The Trinity find their unique identities by focusing not on themselves, but on one another.”  That, in a nutshell, is a peek into God’s will for each of us.

God Reveals His Love for Mankind by Sacrificing the Son He Loved from Eternity – Bom Jesus do Monte, Portugal, (Wiki Commons)

“Thy will be done” is quoted from the prayer Jesus taught His disciples known as the “Lord’s Prayer.” If there’s anything impossible for humans, it would be adopting and living by these four powerful words. Why, because of the energy of the human will. Since his fall from Adam, man has been a “solitary” being, and his energy is always self-centered. God is a “Triune” Being, and His energy is motivated by self-giving Love. So naturally, man’s will and God’s will  will always be at odds with each other. Man was not made to exist in “solitary” existence, but God exist as a “Triune” Being. (Gen.1:26-27) Adam had sold man to this way of life that has brought all the heartaches, suffering and deprivation.

With God All Things Are Possible

Nevertheless, Jesus utters these encouraging words, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matt.19:26) The context in which these words were spoken refers to Jesus’ encounter with a rich man and the supposed impossibility of the rich entering God’s Kingdom. However, the principle applies in every facet of living and life itself, including God’s will, not just idolized materialism. Those who find the secret of living by these words, “Thy Will be done,” will find rest, peace, joy, purpose, and success in this life and the life of eternity to come. For by having the Father’s divine will accomplished is really the lavishing of His Love upon us. His will will always be His Love. Paul revealed the secret: “And I have been crucified with The Messiah, and from then on I myself have not been living, but The Messiah is living in me, and this that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of The Son of God, he who has loved us and has given himself for us.” (Gal. 2:20, Aramaic Bible) What has been crucified is our “solitary life” and given up for dead for a life of faith. The human body is now the “temple” for the Spirit in which to exercise the Love and faith of Jesus in the “Triune Life.” (1Cor.3:16; 6:19) There is nothing wrong with the ‘human body’ of itself, it is the engine which runs it, be it the “solitary life” or the “Triune Life,” which determines how the body lives and functions. Jesus glorified our humanity, or human body, making it immortal, in His resurrection. (1 Cor.15:42-44) And if it is Jesus who lives in us, then the life we live is most assuredly the “Triune Life” of God, for Jesus is no less Triune God as the Father and the Spirit. Jesus, the second Adam, is the One who makes all things possible for and in man.

The secret of Paul tells us how God’s “Triune” collaborative Loving way works: He gives us His Son who came as the prophesied Immanuel, lived, died as our Savior, was resurrected, and ascended to heaven, so that we can live vicariously in His now perfect glorious life (both God and deified human) for our salvation in this life, and the one to come in His spiritual realm. God accepts this substitutionary reality in His Son which makes it possible for man to do His will. There is no other way! This is the “Triune Life!”

License to Sin?

Does this mean we can do no wrong? Does this give us the license to live in careless abandon? No, our human body still exists in its fallen state from Adam and will trespass, but we don’t have a rebellious but a compliant heart. (Rom. 7:18-25). In Christ we exist in the “saved condition” in the Spirit’s power, not the “sin condition.” Now we are living the “Triune Life” in Christ, not the “solitary life” in ourselves, for the old self is crucified and “dead” remember. Man’s propensity to sin is no excuse to live licentiously, but to enlighten man of his need for a permanent Mediator in Christ. Jesus cleanses our hearts in the washing of the water of His Word that flows in us. (John 7:38-39) That’s why in the same Lord’s Prayer, Jesus taught us to pray for forgiveness daily – “forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matt.6:12, NASB) It is a process that will take a lifetime.

“For I Know The Plans I Have For You…”

Our “solitary” perspective of Him is unfounded. When He commands us to do His will for our lives, He has more than our best interest in mind. To prove it, He did not spare His Son to make His Loving will for us possible. And our best life comes because His Love motivates all our thoughts and deeds. The prophet Jeremiah quotes God’s attitude toward us in this fashion, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer.29:11) Again, I realize these words were spoken in the context of Israel’s captivity, but that’s how God’s Love always is to anyone who desires to do His will, not just for Israel!

Life of Needs

When we think about what “His plans are to prosper us,” we often don’t regard this as “His will” being done in our lives. We think in a “solitary” mode that He is trying to withhold something from us, perhaps our freedom of expression. If we fail to see life through the prism of the “Triune” nature of God’s Tri-Personal Love, we will be imprisoned in our “solitary” ways that’s driven by “fear” and “need” – not Love and abundance. Our choices in life will always depend upon how we define freedom for ourselves, isn’t it? All our life-choices is about being free from the problems and trials of life, that’s why we “need” this and that stuff. And we don’t want God’s will impinging upon us. So we are always thinking about what we “need,” or our perceived “need,” that will give us freedom and peace of mind. But the very act of resisting God’s will which will produce the true freedom we seek, we have defied at our own expense. Our “needs” can be material things, money, or whatever it may be. Money is a big dynamic in attaining economic and social freedoms. However, material stuff and money will not free us completely because they don’t give us true authentic freedom. Only God’s Love expressed in the “Triune” life can deliver true freedom. Man’s fear expressed in his “solitary” ways enslaves him.

Destiny and Gifts

With the “Triune Life” comes gifts and blessings. God has endowed each and every one of us with a calling to live out our destiny in His Love. To achieve that, He has given us gifts to realize and reach our destinies. But we must be careful not to convert our God-given “life gift” into a “life of needs” for our own selfish objectives. Never turn your gift into an ATM machine for your own “needs,” but rather to the service of God. When it comes to gifts, many people forget God is the sovereign Giver of gifts. “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.” (Rom.12:6a; see also Luk.11:13; Jam.1:17) We have taken life and our inborn abilities for granted, our faith is entirely humanistic and earth-bound. The believer must resign himself to this fact about the origin of our talents and abilities. When we surrender our gifts to Jesus, as Abraham did with Isaac, He will hand our gifts back to us consecrated, so we will prosper fittingly in His Love – as “Triune” persons, not “solitary” individuals.

Our gifts, like God’s Love, is for the purpose of enriching others, not ourselves through our “needs.” Have you ever seen a tree feeding on its own fruits, cannibalizing itself? No, fruits are for others to come and enjoy and glorify the Gardener who planted it. So it is with our providential gifts and destinies. The Bible says, Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” (Prov.11.25, ESV)  Jesus said, “I am the Vine (tree) and you are the branches, and My Father is the Gardener.” (John 15:5,1) The Spirit is the sap which flows through the tree to the branches which produce “good” fruits. This story of the vine and the branches Jesus told his disciples before His crucifixion is the depiction of the “Triune” life we have in Him.

Jesus further said this about human “needs,” “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?… So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness (the “Triune” life)), and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matt.6:25-34, emphasis added) Jesus is differentiating the “Triune Life” from the “solitary life.”

The “life-gift” we have comes through the flow of the Holy Spirit who has been given as the primary gift to be with us “forever.” (John 14:15-18). He is the deposit of God’s Love in the believer. (Rom. 5:5) He is the “creative life” (gift and calling) of Jesus in us empowering us to live the “Triune” life. Man’s only connection to Jesus is through his God-given “life-gift” (creative life) which is based on love, not on needs which are fear-based.

Life of “Needs” or Life of “Gifts”

The “life-gift” we have in and through the flow of the Spirit will always be the “creative life” (miraculous life) in Jesus from the Father. One (“Triune” life) is empowering while the other (“solitary” life) is disempowering. One is superabundance while the other is lack and deprivation. No matter how “good” our intentions, how noble our acts, it is our will which determines its foregone conclusion – whether it’s abundance or want. Many times it’s just a vicious cycle formed out of repetition which becomes habit. Each time you face a need and let fear instead of Love dominate the situation, fear becomes the dominant force in your life. Fear finds strength in the self-will of the “solitary” life. God’s will always summon Love into the life of the believer to look to Him for answers. (Psa.37:5) And the answers will always be out of His abundance, not your need. Love is another word for abundance. Fear is another word for need and deprivation.

Our “Thought-Life”

Just as we compensate for gravity to live on this earth, so must we compensate for God’s Love in our thought-life, to live in His Love-based will, and not our fear-based human will. (read my post “It’s The Thought That Counts” posted 03/18/2014) It has been scientifically proven that our thinking transmit thought waves which radiates energy, both good and bad, depending upon one’s thoughts. Before science discovered this, Paul made reference to it calling the devil the “prince of the power in the air.” (Eph.2:2) He uses the ‘airwaves’ to broadcast his attitudes (thoughts) to unsuspecting humans. But the Spirit lives in us to control our thoughts and the impulses from the world around us.

There are only two forms of energy we can radiate out from us: Love and fear. When it is Love, we attract God in our petitions. When it is Fear, we repel Him and the enemy steps into our lives. CS Lewis said, “We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.”

Fear will respond to a need and say: “I must have it.” “I can’t live without it.” “I’m addicted to it.”

On the other hand, Love will respond to Love and say, “I can live without it.” “I never feel, ‘I must have it.’” “I’m not addicted to it.”

Love has no needs! Love is abundance!

Love (God) responds to Love, not need. Abundance responds to Love, not fear. Fear is lack and is founded upon man’s self-will. Love is another word for superabundance. Fear is another word for utter deprivation. Of course, we are talking of a holistic abundance which embraces both the physical and spiritual realms. So, do you see now why Jesus wants the Father’s His will to be done in our lives?

God tells us this through wise King Solomon, “Commit to the Lord (Love) whatever you do (your will for His), and He will establish your plans. The Lord works out everything to its proper end- even the wicked (fearful) for a day of disaster.” (Prov.16:3-4, emphasis added)


Until we meet again in my next post, may the blessing of the God who ceaselessly expresses Himself in His dependable Triune Love, be with you today and give you strength for authentic creative Triune Living as a Bula man-river.*

Greetings once more friends everywhere!

I hope you can find this site as a place you can find rest and peace from a stressful and sometimes excessively demanding world out there. I had obtained this explanation for the title of my post, “The saying “a penny for your thoughts” is an English idiom simply asking what someone is thinking. Though no payment actually changes hands, the phrase has become a regular part of the English vernacular.” ( You may have also heard the expression, to offer “my two pennies (or cents) worth.” It has similar nuance of offering one’s opinion in a matter. The idiom seem to imply one’s thoughts is not valued a whole lot, but it’s given and taken for what’s it worth. Contrary to this opinion, I would argue your thoughts are vital and has much to do with how we will live a meaningful life. To put it another way, it’s your thought that counts! Let’s talk about the true value of our thoughts and how they affect our future and that of our loved ones.

Paul tells us, “We demolish arguments (thoughts) and every pretension (attitude) that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient (in Love) to Christ.” (2Cor.10:5). This passage tells we are to reject bad thoughts, while trying to keep the good ones. Jesus gives us the right words and thoughts for living. He said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matt.11:29) “Learn from Me” means to be reeducated in our thought process. Sometimes, it is hard to shut out the world and be able to spend some quality time with Him and imbibe on His Word and His thoughts. The reason for this is obvious – our minds and thoughts are still locked into the sway of this malevolent world with all its hectic pace and insidious manipulation. As a result our thoughts have a negative impact upon us. So let’s talk about an important Godly attribute man has been given that can help us find rest and peace in our lives – through our thoughts and thinking process.

Divine Spark, 012215

The Human Mind – Having the Divine Spark Which Gives Human Intelligence (Wiki Commons)

“As He Thinks…So Is He”

It was wise King Solomon who said, you are what you think. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he (Prov. 23:7a). James Allen, author of the book As a Man Thinketh, writes that “…humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt. It’s the wise man, it’s he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, that makes the wind and storm of the soul obey him.” The life that’s mixed with malevolence and seeks competition, domination, and rivalry whose mind is generated by inconsistent and incomplete thinking and comes at the behest of man’s “lone wolf” thinking. Thoughts lead to action.

Thirty Thousand Thoughts a Day

The average person has over thirty thousand thoughts a day, according to Dr. Caroline Leaf, in her book, Who Switched Off My Brain. Thoughts are words in muted rather than spoken form. Words forms the picture of life we will live in our realities. Thoughts are actions in muted in muted form. That’s why your words and actions which originate in your thoughts are important for they form the foundation of your reality. Of all the species of life God has created upon our earth, only man is replicated in God’s likeness with the divine capacity to think and act upon his thoughts. (Gen.1:26-27) Animals and other created species don’t think. God created them with instincts to ‘behave’ in a fixed and predictable manner. The function of the human mind is fundamentally spiritual in its activity and setup, rather than a purely physical brain function. Thoughts are unseen and exist in the realm of the spiritual. Jesus is the foundation and source of all wholesome and cleansing knowledge. Jesus, the Personified Word of God, is the Instructor, as His Word the Bible, is the instruction manual that comes with God’s ‘product’ called human beings. However, we are not robots, we are His children and He deeply Loves each one of us, so much so He did not spare His Son in order to save us.

If God made us in His image to have a mind like His, and the fund of knowledge in His Son to tell us how live, then He is as near to us as the many thoughts we think with our God-given minds.  -All we have to do is utilize our freedoms and choose the right thoughts which reflect Him – for there are also false and destructive thoughts. Yes, freedom is divine and originate with God and is the flip-side of His Love. We use it to make deliberate and wise decisions. This in itself is a miraculous activity we live through each day without fully appreciating His unseen Loving hand  upon us. The ability to think and reason and exercise our liberties then be conscious of our actions is proof of the presence of Jesus and the Spirit in our lives. Our thoughts underlie all our actions and interactions with each other. The purpose of the human mind is to be a “factory” for thoughts to create concepts and ideas which conform to the image of Christ. (Rom.8:29; 2Cor.10:5) They can be good and bad thoughts, happy and sad ones, loving and fearful, living and deathly ones. The Spirit of God is the life-energy which envelopes our universe and all life forms upon this earth. Nothing can exist outside of God’s life-giving energy. The Spirit is the ‘divine spark’ which give the mind of man his intellectual and spiritual faculties.

Thoughts Create Forms to be Acted On

Of all the thoughts the mind receives through internal and external stimuli, enters the factory of the mind which processes them to create concepts and ideas to be decided and acted upon. The work of transformation begins with the flow of Jesus’ Person in His Triunity with the Father and the Spirit, and His Words (the Bible) in man’s thought processes. The Bible compares man to a riverbed with the Spirit as its living waters which cover him and so help control his thought process. (John 7:37-39) There’s “living waters” as there is “deathly waters.” Where the Bulumanriver** (Unbeliever) has “deathly waters” flowing through him, he process thoughts through the spirit of fear, self-interest and independence. The Bulamanriver* (Believer) has “living waters” of the Spirit flowing through him. His thoughts are processed by love, self-giving and interdependence. The “deadly waters” of the river of fear produce one result – lack and deprivation, and ultimately death. The “living waters” of the Spirit give us the power to channel our thoughts and actions in love, with one result: to live creatively and abundantly, both now and into eternity, with the Triune God.

The Thought behind the Thought

So how do we take these many conscious thoughts that enter and influence our minds at a rate that boggles the mind and make sense of them? It’s not as hard as  one might imagine. The human mind is first and foremost a filtering device. Everyone possesses two mindsets: one manages the conscious thought while the second manages the subconscious thought. Our subconscious mind is associated with and inspires the human conscience. That is how God made the mind to function, and it is well researched in scientific circles. The subconscious mind is the underlying thought process which governs all the conscious thoughts. So what a person is thinking in his conscious thoughts is automatically filtered through his subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is the sponsoring thought that governs his conscious thoughts. It’s the ‘factory’ that collects all your thought data and creates “form” out of them to be acted upon.

Bulamanriver (Believer) vs Bulumanriver (Unbeliever)!

It’s not uncommon to find the conscious and subconscious thoughts encounter disagreement. This happens because the subconscious is filtering the conscious thoughts based upon what it believes to be true and secures everything about him/her. When differences occur, the conscious thought always loses the battle to the subconscious mind. For example, the Bulumanriver,** (unbeliever) with the river of fear flowing in him, will have his subconscious mind (sponsoring thought) lead inevitably to create actions that produce self-centeredness, greed, anxiety and ultimately lack and death. No matter how many “good intentions” his conscious thought might have, the subconscious mind will not allow him to achieve them in a true lasting way that produces genuine good. It will always invent a negative form upon which to base his choices. The subconscious mind consistently champions the day for it governs the thirty thousand thoughts that enter our head. As G. K. Chesterton said, “It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It is that they can’t see the problem.” Albert Einstein said no problem gets resolved by ignoring what created it in the first place – the heart of man. (Jer.17:9) Consequently, your outer life (conscious) reflects your inner beliefs (subconscious) about you. (Matt.15:16-20)

Subconscious Like ‘Gravity’

Think about the law of gravity. We grow up discovering how to compensate for it as we learn to live within the limitations it allows us. All our acts and movements are done to compensate for it, so much so we give it no second thought. We live with gravity without giving conscious thought to it. We take gravity for granted, and becomes second nature to us. When we are up on a high elevation, we automatically find something to hang onto for we are well aware what gravity is capable of doing to us. In a real sense, our mind has its own “gravity” – it’s our subconscious mind. Our conscious thoughts, all thirty thousand of them, have to compensate for this “gravitational” pull of our subconscious mind and what it is telling us to do with our thoughts. It happens in our minds involuntarily like we have grown accustomed to physical gravity. We gravitate to our subconscious-sponsored thought unconsciously – that’s why we sometimes wonder why our plans don’t turn out the way we imagined. In other words, if there is a clash of thoughts between the conscious and the subconscious, the subconscious will win every time.


For example, a person may have a long-held belief that it is wrong to be rich. Perhaps his idea of money stems from his mistaken understanding of a passage from the Bible which states, “For the love of money is a (not ‘the’) root of all kinds of evil; for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves with many sorrows” (1 Tim. 6:10, NKJV). His belief and idea about money is soldered into his subconscious mind – ‘money is evil.’ That’s how the Bulumanriver** (Unbeliever) thinks in his fear-based thought process. Yet, in his conscious thoughts, he plans many lavish and grand things for him and his family. However, in order to achieve those ambitions, he needs ‘money.’ So, there is a clash of minds. What’s being pursued by his conscious mind, his subconscious (sponsoring) mindset is telling him it will be something ill-gotten, because of his beliefs about money. I’m not saying the Bulumanriver** (Unbeliever) will not achieve his aims, he can, but he does it battling his conscience, and he will not acquire them in a truly abundant way. His conscience is seared and only the Spirit can change him through repentance and forgiveness. I will not mention the stress and anxiety that accompanies him. But, O the joy that could have accompanied him, if only! I hope we have our own bearings about money focused in the proper way – through the Bulamanriver* (Believer). This happens not only with money, but every other aspect of life.

God is the richest Person in the universe, He declares, “The gold is Mine, and the silver is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills, the fowls and the wild beasts are Mine, the earth and its fullness and all that dwell in it” (Hag. 2:8; Ps. 24:1; Ps. 50:10-11). Yet He is Spirit and does not need to be defined by them to prove His super-abundance. He declares Himself super abundant in His Love – in His Triune Being of Love. So, if riches are not evil because they are God’s creation, our thoughts about them ought to change. If we fail to control our thoughts and channel them in a constructive way, then our fear-based environment will control us. It’s that simple.

“The Gold is Mine,” Says the Lord. “Mojave Nugget” California’s Largest Nugget, 156 ounces (Wiki Commons)

Money is not Evil, Man Is!

Money is not evil by itself – it’s the wrong use of money that’s evil. It starts in out thought process. The bottom line on money is this: if money is a defense, and it is, and Jesus is our true defense, then money and Jesus are one and the same. (Psa.118:14) Money becomes something virtuous for it is used to reflect Jesus. It is to reflect Him in us in a self-giving rather than self-centered way. He is reflected in us through the right thoughts of money in our subconscious mind. We don’t adore money but Jesus, our true defense (Eccl. 7:11-12). It would be pointless to have as much money as you would like if it cannot protect or defend you. True defense comes from Jesus, not money. Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matt.6:24) Therefore, money and all material things are supposed to help attract us to Christ, not draw us away from Him. He must sit on the throne of our lives, not any material stuff, most of all, not money. Ultimately, Love is the true source of all abundance.

Of what use are material things in the spiritual realm and regime of God? One day all material riches will be of no value, because the only valuable thing that will remain is God’s Love in his spiritual kingdom. God’s Love is another word for super abundance. Think about it, how did money or riches came to be. It was created by man’s thoughts. Man created the economic system of goods and service with currencies (money) to keep it turning. Who gave man his thoughts? It is fashioned after the mind of God to make choices about how man will live life. (Gen.1:26-27) So, the ability to think and make choices is the gift of God’s Love. He calls us to amend our ways out from a self-centered orbit, to His Love-centered universe. All material riches of the earth was created by God who is Love.


Let me now share how the believer controls his thought process. For the Bulamanriver* (Believer), Love is the spiritual “gravity” in our thought environment. We don’t learn to live within Love’s spiritual gravity as quickly as we do with physical gravity. Living within Love’s spiritual gravity is a process of thought and thought forms. On the physical level, we learn very quickly that we need a chair to break our fall when we sit, but we fail to equate the Spirit’s Love in our hearts as the spiritual gravity that will bring true success.

Love Is the ‘Champion of the Subconscious Mind

The Bula man-river’s* sponsoring (subconscious) thought is God’s Love. Love is the subconscious mindset that should govern all our thoughts. Love is the super-abundant thought-process – it is the factory where thoughts are the raw material which create forms for decision-making and acted upon. Therefore, the sponsoring thought through which all our conscious thought are sifted always ends with joy, peace, abundance and Love. Jesus said, “Those who have – more will be given; those who don’t – what they have will be taken” (Matt. 13:12 emphasis added). He is speaking of our underlying philosophy about life that’s welded to our subconscious mind. Abundance (Love) breeds plenty, while lack (fear) breeds scarcity. The subconscious-sponsoring thought of God’s divine Love is the sieve that filters all our conscious thoughts to produce one inevitable form – abundance. The subconscious mindset determines if your thoughts (seeds) fall on “good and rich ground” or “stony and poor ground.” Love is to our thought environment what gravity is to our physical environment. No matter how high we aim, our foot will rest ultimately on the ground of our sponsoring thought (subconscious mind).

Like a Jig-Saw Puzzle

It’s like a jigsaw puzzle where you have seen the picture of the end from the beginning outside the jig-saw box. The picture symbolizes your subconscious mind –  it’s the picture of God’s Love, and His personal gift and calling in your life. (Read my blog titled, “Gifts, Abilities, Destinies, posted on 1/10/2014) When you pick the right pieces (thoughts), they fall magically into place and the picture comes through. Unlike a jigsaw puzzle which has all the correct pieces in the box, we have all kinds of thoughts including ones that don’t fit the picture, enter our minds. Our subconscious mind assists us by filtering our thoughts to find the right pieces that fit the picture. When we have the right picture (subconscious mind enveloped in God’s Love), your brain is always on autopilot, picking the right pieces which fit the picture.

As I said earlier, it’s not as daunting as the number of thoughts that bombard our conscious minds each day, all 30,000 of them. Love puts your subconscious mind on autopilot to sieve through them. It happens at lighting-fast pace we are not even conscious of how this awesome miracle of the mind works. The question is what picture do you have? That’s the key! You must get the picture (subconscious Love mindset) right first. When your picture is Jesus, you will use only the right thoughts (jigsaw pieces) that fit into the picture, with the help of the Spirit. Then you form Godly decisions to be acted on based upon the process of His Love.

Five Senses Tools for Raw Material of Thought

Love-forms are the result of “creative thinking” which leads to “creative action” and materializes into “creative works” (Eph. 2:10). So forms materialize as plans and goals birthed in our thoughts. We perceive form through the five senses. The five senses do not create form. Only thoughts do, through the subconscious mindset that’s motivated by the Spirit’s Love. The five senses are tools of the mind factory, and thoughts are raw material you use to help create Love forms to enable you to live positive realities in life.

Do We Live Through Our Senses?

However, many of us do not, or seldom, live that way. We live principally through our senses. That’s to say, we let others do our thinking and create forms in our stead. We have allowed our inquisitiveness and imagination to be taken over by the glamour and appeal of the latest scandal, public frenzy, the captivating drama on our television – whether real or fiction, or the entertainment element plastered all over our media. Have we given our minds to other mediums such that we cannot think for ourselves? Our five senses ought to be disciplined to go where our Love-thoughts lead us, not the other way round. The senses are suppose to live in joyous excitement of the creative thought activity of the mind. Perhaps inadvertently or through ignorance we have become prisoners of our own making by letting our sensory responses lead us, instead of allowing our creative thinking dominate our lives.

The Word – Our Foundation

God thinks Trinitarianly and shares His Triune thought process with us by saying He knows our thoughts before we think them. (Psa.139:2) The Spirit’s thoughts of Love show us how we are to think and live as Bulamanrivers* (Believer) (1 Cor.13; Rom.12 & 13; Gal. 5; Col.3 & 4). It’s a way of living that produces creative forms on a consistent basis and never fails you because you are a river and the ecology of the “living waters” (Spirit) makes fertile and rich whatever, wherever, and whoever you flow through. And the river (man) does this consistently every single day. The river (man) comes as a new beginning each day—consistently. That is abundance as defined in the life of the Bulamanriver* (Believer) (1Cor.13:8, 13; John 7:37-39). If the Bible can be defined in one word, it is Love. (Matt.22:37-40). God’s Spirit is the divine Love deposited in believing humans. “God’s Love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” (Rom.5:5)

Therefore, the Bible is the groundwork of Love from which we create forms of thought that lead to greater benefits, and they come to us without apology because they are founded on the principles of God’s Love. The Bible says we should pay heed to the foundation upon which we build our lives – whether it is on shifting sand or on the solid Rock, Jesus Himself. (Matt.7:24-27) The foundation determines whether the structure will stand the test of time and remain secure well into the future. The Bible is the foundation of our thoughts for creating plans, desires, goals, and objectives – in one word, basic form of the Love of God. The Bible brings form and stability to our lives as long as Love is in our subconscious mindset and shapes our thought processes. Love is “creative action” because it is deliberately formed in the thought and acted out. To think like a Bulamanriver* (Believer) is to think like God. To think like God is to think Love in all its manifestation (1Cor.13:1-13; Rom.12 & 13; Gal.5; Col.3 & 4). Then we are to maintain this sound mind that comes consistently from the Spirit to keep our thoughts motivated by Love’s fruits. (2Tim.1:7)

Make Rich the “Valleys”

The river (man) exists to make the valleys fertile for the sustenance of all who depend on them. For the Bulamanriver* (Believer), the valleys represent the community of people with whom you come in contact daily. There is your family valley. Then there is your church valley. There is your neighbor, community, and village, valley. Furthermore, there is your work or occupation valley. Then there is your school valley, your national valley, and so forth. Each of these valleys requires different responses from you. Here is the crossover: we have a mind to think good thoughts that form “abundance,” or to think fearful thoughts that form “lack.” To think super “abundant” thoughts is our inheritance given us by the Creator, who is Love by nature. Lack is the place of fear, and to think in “lack” is to live in the river of fear, strife, rebellion, and greed—the Bulumanriver** (Unbeliever).

We are called in our gifts to make rich our valleys. When we do, we likewise become rich too. The Bible says, “He who waters others will himself be watered.” (Prov.11:25, NASB) Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed himself. That’s how the law of Love works.

The Bible tells us “be you transformed by the renewing of your mind (your thoughts.)” (Rom. 12:2) Your thought is the key. Your thought is to be harmonized with the literal Word of God, and the Personified Word of God, Jesus. The Personified Word (Jesus) manifest Himself by living in us in the Spirit’s power, and His literal Word, the Bible, guides us with the Spirit’s inspiration. He miraculously creates circumstances for those who believe in the promises of His Word. Your actions will always follow the forms your thoughts create – whether for good or bad. You are to first “think abundantly good.” You have to “grow” to be abundant. You have to “increase” to be abundant. That’s Love. Love is abundance. Jesus said, “Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.” (Matt.5:48, The Message)

Fight the Good Fight

Paul said, “The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world. On the contrary, we have divine power to cast down imaginations [demolish evil thoughts and arguments] and every pretension [posturing thought] that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we bring captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Cor. 10:4-6 emphasis added). So Paul reveals an enemy who wants to change us from the Bulamanriver* (Believer) with the Spirit’s “living waters” and take us back to the Bulumanriver** (Unbeliever), the river of fear and want that we have renounced, disowned, and left behind. He says the battle lines have been drawn, and the enemy has been identified, so we have no doubt or misgivings about how, when, why, and where this battle is going to be fought – in our minds, for the controls of our thoughts!

I will close with this apt quote, “Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, either way you are right!” (Henry Ford) I certainly hope you will never undervalue your thoughts for pennies.

* The “Bulamanriver” is the metaphor describing the believer who is the union of man with the Love of the Triune God flowing in humans, making possible the “Triune Life” – the source of the miraculous life in man. “Bula” is a Fijian word which means “life.” To read the many facets of life of the Bulamanriver,* go to my website where you can order a copy of my Book.

** The Bulumanriver is metaphor for a non-believer. “Bulu” is Fijian word which means “burial” or “death.” This river produces want and death in the person. Bulumanriver is the union of man with his fallen, unsaved self who lives under the deception and sway of the devil. You can also read my blog post titled “Who is The Bulamanriver?”

Greetings once more friends everywhere! Let’s talk about meditation in this post.

Meditation and visualization is not some kind of mental gymnastics or spiritual workout. It’s the revelatory means by which the Spirit translates the reality of God in His Tri-Personal Being into human life. Vision is holding out our future in Christ and making it our reality today, so it influences our innermost being in how we think and act. Everything around us is always at work trying to disengage us from that reality. However, we have a friend in the Spirit who empowers us (Matt. 6:34; Rom. 15:13; John 16:8-11, 13-14).

God is Spirit and we are mortal, and living joyfully in His presence is a spiritual experience which affects all our physical and mental capacities (John 4:24). It is a life of joy that holds us captivated in His Love because it overwhelms us and is bigger than our mere human minds. So powerful is this life we are promised that even in our adversities the joy that undergirds our lives carries us through with hopeful expectation and living faith. This vision is about our shared future in Christ and how we fit into that picture as individuals with God-ordained gifts. If it doesn’t become our reality as much as it is God’s own reality for us, we will perish; slowly but surely we will perish (Prov. 29:18). The degree to which this promised life becomes our reality is the same measure of God’s realism in our lives. Vision and meditation help make our calling become reality in our lives. The pulse of our “life-gift” on earth, together with our “core-gift” of immortality, beats in unison with the one life we have in Christ and all mankind.

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle which comes together with the help of Visualization and Meditation (Wiki Commons)

Meditation Is Mediation

Vision is enhanced through meditation. To live a life of continuous miraculous manifestation calls for a reality which does not exist within the human mind, but in the life of Jesus in the heavenly courts. Regrettably, meditation is a lost art in today’s fast-paced world. We all seem to be going somewhere fast, but where we’re headed seems more an illusion than ever. In the final analysis, the gnawing question is always “what was it all for, and what tangible contribution has it made to my life?” I hope we can give an honest answer and realize that it was all a chasing after wind (Eccl. 1:14).

However, God holds out the promise of His Love to man: take it and live fully in this life, and forever in unbound joy in His presence. This is the life that’s truly life (1 Tim. 6:19; 4:8). We need to stop and reflect. Everything else is fleeting and of no value. Jesus asked, “What kind of a deal is it to get everything you want, and lose yourself?” (Matt. 16:26, The Message). We need to meditate on those words. Meditation is really the act of mediation. We are mediating for the dream-life which comes through miraculous events in the constant reality of our life, and finally takes us into God’s eternal presence. Think of how God has the power to create just by speaking His word into reality. That is what the Genesis account of creation tells us. This is an unreal world to our human intellect. It requires something more.

The practices of Eastern religions require the mind to be “emptied.” However, in biblical meditation, instead of emptying the mind, the meditator fills his mind with the purpose and dreams of God for his life. The person mediates God’s purpose in his life through meditation, by pondering the different circumstances he’s encountered and those he thinks he will encounter in his life as a Bula man-river.* He meditates on how he will respond to these events, with the Spirit at his side giving counsel. Only then, in real life, will he respond harmoniously with his calling and dream-life. In meditation we often dwell on scriptures that relate to our circumstances, and we reinvigorate our “core-gift” (Holy Spirit) and how they relate to our present “life-gift” (gift and calling).

Living a life of faith can best be described as perplexing. Since we are Bula man-rivers,* called by God, chosen and Loved, we assume we are entitled to a life without obstacles and setbacks. However, our experiences tell us otherwise. For the journey can be bewildering and painful at times. Let’s be clear, His favor never leaves us for a moment. It’s a battle between two opposites. For many it comes as a surprise, but in our vision of God’s sovereignty, His unbound grace and Love, we will understand things are not what they seem. For truly, in such moments as when we may tire of waiting, He shows up at our side to comfort us, confirming His never-failing Love.

Listen to this dialog and see yourself in it. An enquirer asks, “What’s God going to say to my questions? I’m braced for the worst. I’ll climb to the lookout tower and scan the horizon. I’ll wait to see what God says, as to how he’ll answer my complaint. And then God answers, ‘Write the vision. Write it in big block letters so it can be read on the run. The vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming – it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait! It’s on its way. It will come right on time!” (Hab. 2:1-3, The Message). God’s reality for us has always been real to Him. It is for us to enter into His Triune reality and read the clear message in our vision of that reality. The vision arrives at different times and circumstances for different people as the Spirit moves them. The vision is one and always Jesus Christ. For He is the One our life must conform to if we are to enter God’s presence and live joyfully, and even now receive grace for living (Rom. 8:29; Ps. 16:11).

Joy is the elixir that comes from that ongoing vision of God’s Triune reality in us. In every time and age the revelation of Jesus as the Person in the Godhead who takes humanity back into the presence of the Godhead will always be a vision that brings life to those who are given the sight to “read and run with it.”

Your meditation life begins with you as a Bula man-river.* This is where Jesus is the life in you in the full-flowing river with miraculous powers. Meditate and visualize the ever-present reality of the Spirit flowing in the “living waters” in you. Both Jesus and Herald (Holy Spirit) are all you need to bring creativity and abundance. When you wake each morning, before engaging the world in all its malevolence, meditate about becoming the Bula man-river* that you are. Then meditate on the key features covered my book* of what the “flow” of the Bula man-river* does. C.H. Spurgeon called this meditation process “the machine in which the raw material of knowledge is converted to its best use.” That knowledge is your life in Jesus as a Bula man-river*, and in the flow from the life of the Spirit to your creative purpose and calling. Spurgeon points to people who know the Bible but know nothing of its power. The power to create your “life-gift” rests squarely upon the move of the Spirit. We must, with the help of the Spirit, ponder the words of life (Bible). We must keep falling back to the default mechanism of the Bula man-river* in our vision of greatness in Christ. We must always cultivate gratitude and solitude in our place of abundance.

Visualizing Your “Self” is Like Imagining Your Life as a House In the Dynamics of Life and Relationships with People and Things. (Wiki Commons)

Above all, be true to yourself as a Bula man-river* in God’s hands. Visualize yourself as a full-flowing river streaming peacefully with the self-assurance in your purpose to give life to all you meet every single day. Be passionate. Without passion, you don’t have energy, and without energy you have nothing. Sometimes you have to find the passion. It comes from inside you; it’s in the “living waters” that flow in you. Without vision, there is no passion and conviction. Passion means your dream-life holds an intense power over you. Conviction means the faith supplied by Herald, who gives us the will to put to action our vision (Phil. 2:13). It is only through personal vision and passionate conviction that psychological freedom is attained in any meaningful sense of the word!

Remember, the Love of God is so intense it takes hold of us and changes us – provided we let Him bring us into His triune existence as Bula man-rivers.* And so it is with joy, with prayer and patience, with faith and whatever we need to manifest “creative action” (Heb. 7:23-24; Rom. 8:26-27, 34). We have goals and motives, whether we choose to face them or not. By visualizing your goals you confront the truth of your desires in a way that makes it apparent and allows you to deal with any contradictions. If I have no vision, I am driven by contradictory and unconscious motives. If I have a vision, then I have the freedom to resolve these conflicts and to hone, modify, and improve my “life-gift” to become the effective Bula man-river* that I am already.
