What Is The Invisible Force of the Universe
I was working on revisions for the second edition of TRIBES when I came upon a phrase "the invisible force of the universe" and knew I was talking about God. In fact, it occurred to me that the word God is the code word for that marvelous phrase.
I started working with this phrase "the invisible force of the universe" and watched how I became clearer: God is vibration and energy. You see, force is energy. It is vibration. It just happens to be the greatest energy and vibration. The highest vibration and energy. God, the invisible force of the universe is the highest vibration and energy of all vibration and energy.
The thing that impressed me was how clear it felt when I thought about making contact with the invisible force of the universe, which I can abbreviate and call IFU, pronounced IF-U.
As yet, I am not sure I am really ready to call God IFU, but I am ready to think about the invisible force of the universe when I think about God. It surely helps me move more clearly beyond what my traditions had taught... God being some guy up in the sky with a beard.
I had moved beyond the anthropomorphic god years ago, but I had not been able to talk intelligently about it. Oh, sure I had gone to the Universal Mind place and the God Mind and even spiritual consciousness and Consciousness. But these did not quite make the discussion clear. Yes, these were part of my growth... I found these along my path as I grew. Right now, I cannot say which came first or which is the most recent. Frankly I think that does not matter. What matters, if anything matters, is that these are among the things that got me to here.
So let me pause for a moment to consider "the invisible force of the universe." Force. Vibrations. Energy. The invisible force. Vibrations are invisible. I cannot see them with the physical eye although I can see them with my mind's eye. The same is so for energy. While I cannot see energy with my physical eye, I can see it with my mind's eye. Inner vision. Inner vision allows me to see vibrations and energy. Inner vision allows me to see vibrations and energy as they move.
With my inner vision, I can see the vibrations of love move in front of me and all around me. Although you may be on the other side of the planet or the other side of the country, I can see the energy of love move into your space where you are. I can see the vibrations of love surrounding you and filling your space.
Where you are and where I am, the invisible force of the universe is. There is no difference in what I knew before and what I know now. Just the words are different. And the words help me to see the connection clearer.
Still, God, the invisible force of the universe is everywhere present. The vibration of the universe is everywhere present. It is omnipresent. The invisible force of the universe is everywhere present and is therefore all the knowledge there is. It is all the power there is. It is all the love there is. There is no place where the invisible force of the universe is not.
I know this may seem overly simplistic. But when I can relate to the vibration and the energy of the universe as vibration and energy then I know that I know. Not only do I know that I know, I am always connected and I am always in contact vibration to vibration, energy to energy.
I am vibration and energy. I speak vibration and energy. I speak to vibration and energy. One simple flow. All that is is vibration and energy, the invisible force of the universe.
I pick up my pen and I pick up vibration and energy. I gently strike the keyboard of my computer and find that I am touching vibration and energy. I look out my window and I look with vibration and energy. I see the cars go by and I see vibration and energy. I see the people go by and I see vibration and energy, the invisible force of the universe.
I call your name and I release vibrations and energy. Do you hear me? Yes, well the vibration through which I called your name is the vibration in which you are operating. No, I called your name through a vibration different from the one in which you are operating. I can call your name by my thought of you. I can call your name by speaking it. I may speak directly to you; I may speak to you through the ethers.
When I think about how wonderful and how marvelous you are, I unleash high vibrations of you and your name. But if I think of you as the scum of the earth, I unleash very low vibrations of you and your name. Even as I write this, I can feel the difference in me. And what I can feel is the shift from a higher to a lower vibration. So I prefer to think about how great and wonderful and beautiful you are. I do this as much for me as I do for you.
I noticed how good that felt when the vibration I released was high and how low that felt when I unleashed a low vibration. In that one action I realized how much I am always thinking about myself. Even when I am thinking about you I am thinking about me. In that one instance, it became clear to me how illness and disease occur and how healing happens.
What I just learned is that illness and disease occur when the body houses the lower vibrations. When low vibrations occupy the body, illness and disease form. The lower vibrations block the flow of life and love through the body.
A quick test comes to mind. Think about a person, one who is significant to you. Now pay attention to what body part responds.
Okay, let's try it again. Think of that person and release the highest vibration possible for you. What body part feels the thrill? If you dare, unleash the lowest vibration possible to see what body part feels the pain. Go back quickly to the highest vibration and stay with it.
Okay, another quick test. This is for you if you experience pain or dis-ease anywhere in your body. Put your attention on a body part where there is pain. Now ask, what person do I associate with the pain? Someone will come to mind. Who is that person? Yes, it can be a group of people. For now, let's deal with one person, even if that one person represents the group. You can always go back and focus on the entire group.
Very quickly, release the highest vibrations you know to that person. See love energy flowing to the person. See love energy filling him or her and flowing through the person. Observe the energy. Notice how soft and billowy it is. How comforting it is. See a broad and genuine smile come across the person's face and observe the joy that abounds. See the person delight in the joy of the moment. Now see the person become the energy. Watch for a while as the energy returns to you. This is the invisible force of the universe with you and with the other and you are one. You see you are one. Just stay with this energy and vibration... with your awareness of it.
Now check your body part.
Okay. Let's move on.
In the beginning the invisible force of the universe set up two types of manifestation, the unseen and the seen. Yes, this is the same as "in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..." The heavens are the unseen, the earth is the seen.
Both the heavens and the earth are vibrational and they are energy, but they are manifestations at different vibrational levels. The heavens are of the higher vibrational levels while the earth, the lower energy levels. The vibrational levels of the heavens and the earth convey limitlessness and the limited. The unseen is unlimited; the seen is limited.
I think of the heavens as the unlimited unseen with no boundaries while the earth is the limited seen with boundaries. Boundaries define space.
As an example of the unlimited unseen and the limited seen, let me talk about myself. As I see it right now, my spiritual self is unlimited and unseen; my soul, which is made up of my mind, emotions and my will, is unlimited and unseen; while my physical self, the part I call my body is limited and seen. My body is limited to its shape and its parts.
By its interpretations of life, my soul created by body. My unseen soul brought forth my body. Now that I know my spiritual self, I am ready to let it re-created my soul and body. But that is getting ahead of my story.
Before I go there, I want to be really clear about the invisible force of the universe (IFU). As I said earlier, it is the unseen unlimited and the seen limited.
What is the invisible force of the universe about? What is this force about? A force is a cause. A force bears something. It manifests. More than this, a force maintains and sustains. It supports and endures. Also it conveys and transfers. Looks like I am talking about vibrations and energy.
A force that bears begets and delivers. It produces and shows; it manifests.
I know the invisible force of the universe is about manifesting. It is about bringing into being that which is. If it is that which is, then it already exists. It is.
The invisible force of the universe brings about that which is on the level of the unseen and unlimited. Then, it brings about that which is on the level of the unseen and limited to the level of the seen and limited.
What about the seen and limited? To find out more about it, I looked in the first few verses of the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very deep.
The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.
So the earth, which is the seen and limited had no form. It was an empty waste. The earth had no form and it was void of shape or design. Something appeared, but whatever it was seemed obscure. It seemed vague and uncertain. In other words, that what was there had immeasurable vibrancy.
Ooops! What is this? It had immeasurable vibrancy! That which was the earth, that is, seen and limited, was immeasurable. The last time I checked, that which is immeasurable is limitless. It has no limit. So far, the earth now instead of being limited is really limitless. Before it has form or design it is limitless.
So I am right back at vibrations. Vibrations without limit, form, shape or design. I could call this potential? This is a good word I use when I think about ability and power. I realize it is not fully expressed and not used. But I know something is there.
Now I have the earth which suggests something with form and design and limits that is actually formless, limitless and is waiting too be designed. Vibrations. The invisible force of the universe.
Let me move a bit further and look at the Spirit of God moving over the face of the waters. What do I have? The Spirit of God is the life of God. The liveliness of God; the liveliness of the invisible force of the universe. Again, energy and vibrations.
The energy of the invisible force of the universe moves over what appears and what appears is flowing and moving. In other words, waters constantly move.
So what is it about water? What about the waters? Water is a symbol for potential. Potential is unused ability. It is the power within something. Potential is something that can be used though, once it has form and purpose.
Water, which is potential, takes the shape of whatever form it is poured into. The shape and the form give it its purpose. Again it's about energy and vibrations. No matter which way I look, it is vibration and energy.
The next part I want to look at is the part where God said Let there be light and there was light. I am thinking about the invisible force of the universe vibrating and how it releases energy to form light. The invisible force of the universe acts upon itself to allow itself to manifest in different forms.
In my fairly recent observations I found that I act upon the universe when I speak and when I think. I call it speaking into the ethers. I speak and I unleash the energy and vibrations of words. I think and I release the vibrations and energy of words. God said is the same, at a vaster, greater degree. In other words, the invisible force of the universe unleashes the energy and vibration of words.
I have a question. How does God speak? How does the invisible force of the universe speak?
The invisible force of the universe speaks with every pulse of its being. IFU speaks in every moment through all that is. The invisible force of the universe is always speaking. It constantly speaks and as it speaks it acts upon itself. It acts upon itself because itself is all that is. The invisible force of the universe speaks in and through all that is. The invisible force of the universe speaks in every moment, it speaks its first utterance in every moment.
Every moment is the moment for the first utterance. Every moment is the moment to utter Let there be light. In the instance that I utter Let there be light I expect light to appear.
Every moment is the first moment for my first utterance. Every moment is the moment for my first breath. It is the moment for my first word. And my first word is Let there be light.
I speak in this moment and I think in this moment and as I think and speak I act upon that which is. I speak and the invisible force of the universe acts upon that which is through me. Through the words I speak and the words I think.
The thing is this: I have to be aware of the invisible force of the universe when I think and speak. I have to be aware of the invisible force of the universe in me, moving in and through me as me. With all my being, I embrace the invisible force of the universe. In and through my every cell I am aware of the invisible force of the universe. In and through my every thought and word, this invisible force flows and pulsates and moves to where I send it. I feel its power and I know its power.
