There’s a phrase that says “when one door closes, another door opens.” The image conjures up a sense that somehow you are at the mercy of a string of corridors – much like a maze – and the success of your path will be determined by someone (or something) either allowing admittance into certain areas or flatly refusing your petition.
However, this may not at all be the case. What if we were to discover that the doors were something we could open and close ourselves – or better yet, they were all simply illusions?
Modern day consciousness research is unraveling the boundaries of the soul and discovering we truly are beyond time and space. Decades of tests with random number generators have indicated that people do indeed have influence over matter using only the power of the mind (which is also complemented by the ‘observer effect’ in quantum mechanics).
Additional studies have concluded we also have influence over events in the “unseen” future – and paradoxically – the already-observed (yet sometimes seeming randomly-generated) past. Results in other fields, such as remote viewing, distant mental healing, and other intention experiments, are yielding the same results:
We are boundless with creative control.
On a fundamental level, these studies give us a glimpse of the universal truth that we are eternal and beyond time and space. Consequently, our eternal self is indestructible, as further demonstrated by a basic law of physics: energy never dies, it simply transforms.
What this suggests is that on some level, the energy of consciousness – your consciousness – has permeated the universe since the very beginning and has had a hand in all of creation. Though you may only occupy a physical body for a measly 70 or 80 years on average, the energy of your consciousness has already surpassed that one lifetime by several eons. When somebody says, “You’re an old soul,” they were not lying!
Your energy, your consciousness, your eternal self, has participated in the birth of galaxies. You witnessed the rise of the dinosaurs and the fall of ancient races. Where will you be tomorrow?
This dimension which houses a momentary existence is but a small room in a much larger mansion – an eternal mansion which you have spent greater spans of your existence living in. Deep down, you know what that greater mansion is like – loving, peaceful, boundless….
Now wait, aren’t we boundless? Yes. Are we not also loving and peaceful? I believe that is what we are striving for.
When studies show our effects beyond time and space, it leaves us to wonder: perhaps we don’t live in a mansion created for us, but one created by us. Since our intentions can transcend physical factors, then what must we fear when our final moments on earth come?
In the theater of life, once the stage lights go down, the house lights go up and we return to the real world of eternity, where we have always been. When one door closes, another door opens. And through the power of our eternal consciousness, we are the true gatekeepers and architects of the journey. Always have been, always will be.
You were – from the very beginning – born perfect for everything and will be for eternity.
