The Miraculous Way
“When the imagination and will power are in conflict, are antagonistic, it is always the imagination which wins, without any exception”. ~Emile Coue
Our normal, day-to-day functioning is focused on a linear world, linear time, linear space and forms. The mind and ways that go with this linear territory is a linear, rational and intellectual mind. Part and parcel of this linear perspective is the belief that the will has more weight and is better at getting anything done than the imagination and creative thinking. We are conditioned to function primarily, even exclusively from a rational approach and way of perceiving and navigating our world, which the intellectual mind wants to believe, is a rational world.
It is surprising how many still believe that will power is the one and only way to get things done. At the same time, scientists are sharing research findings that will-power alone will not give the same quality results. However, the part of the mind that is usually disregarded is the authentic mind. This is not to say that the intellectual mind is inauthentic, only that it is trained to function in this way. Often relinquished to the habituated conditioned intellectual mind is a more miraculous, exceptional and unlimited mind. This is the mind that is creative, generative and willing to go beyond reasonable thinking.
The Miracle mind does not make judgments that limit ones freedom of choice; it exists strictly on its own terms. While the rational mind does create experiences that correspond to its way of thinking, the ideal way is one where the rational and miraculous mind work together, in harmony with the heart and as allies.
