Status Quo - Fact or Fiction?

Is there really such a thing as "staying the same?" After all, isn't that really what status quo implies? If you're at all familiar with nature, you realize that no two days are exactly alike. And since, as Wallace D. Wattles reminds us, "there is a thinking stuff from which all things are made and which, in it original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe," we are all connected with all that is anyway.

So if there is no static status quo, it would stand to reason that there are only two ways the thinking stuff of the universe can take us: toward creation or toward disintegration.

So, if we are always either creating or destroying, and we are aware of this, why wouldn't we intend creation?

If we're doing nothing, we are disintegrating. Dis: "do the opposite of" and Integrate: "to unite or combine." So disintegrate really means to break apart; to lose integrity. Gravity works against us if we are doing nothing. But science also tells us that bodies in motion have an effect on other bodies in motion. As long as we are in motion, we will be in creation mode.

Now all movement is not growth. Since we're learning there is no such thing as status quo, if we do nothing, we are still moving; just at a much slower pace. And the direction is due to gravity, which is down, toward density. All objects are in motion, but the slower the motion, the denser the object.

Wouldn't it stand to reason that the same would be true for our physical energy? The faster we move physically, the lighter we become. What about our thinking? The more energized and enlivening our thoughts, the lighter (more light-filled) we become. We use the term "dark" to imply when things are off (after all, have you ever heard of a "dark switch?" When you want to fill a room with light, you turn on the "light switch."). And the term "light" has several connotations which imply things like bright and not heavy.

Given a choice (which we ALWAYS have), why not choose light and creation?

Now apply this to your home, work, or school life. If we are "staying the same," we are actually disintegrating - breaking apart, losing integrity. We tell ourselves we want to maintain the "status quo," but the world around us is changing, growing, moving, learning, creating. If we say we want to take a year off, just chill and maintain, at the end of that year we will actually be 365 days behind because we were not intentionally creating.

Our minds cannot maintain positive and negative thoughts at the same time; one has to take precedence. And if we're not putting in the positive consciously, the space will fill with the negative or denser energy.

So, one way to maintain the energy and the motion is to get around other objects that are in motion. After all, objects in motion will remain in motion when they are influenced by other objects in motion.

Like-minded and like-hearted people are the same way. They are intentionally creating their outcomes and their futures. And they will remain in creation mode when they are around others who are also in creation mode.

That's the true definition of master mind groups.

The next one starts Thursday, May 13 in Fargo. And if that's not convenient for you, let's start another one. Virtual groups can form anywhere in the world. Let me know ( if you'd like to be part of these groups.

Creation or disintegration? It's up to you.

You got THAT right! It is an observable, physical fact that there are two states - growing and dying. Both can be so slow as to be not easily noticeable. But there are only the two - which is the basic theme of my blog.
