Your Infinite Potential

Posted by Admin on October 1, 2012

by Owen K Waters

Today, we are just beginning to appreciate the enormous scale of Creation. In the Middle Ages, most people worked the land. They rarely ventured far away from their place of birth, so their concept of the world was quite small. Likewise, their concept of God the Creator was small in scale. To them, God was an all-powerful, wise, elderly, human-like figure who lived somewhere above them.

People, at the time, didn’t realize the massive size of the planet upon which they stood. To them, most of their universe could be seen from the top of the nearest hill. Today, with cosmology and the Hubble telescope to help us, our view of the size of the universe has been stretched farther and farther.

What we have learned, since the Middle Ages, includes these realizations:

1. The Earth is not the center of the universe. Apparently, when this was discovered, it came as quite a shock.

2. The Earth is round. This was excellent news at the time: No more worrying that you might take to sea and row off the edge of the world!

3. The Earth travels around the Sun. This means that, while modern-day life on Earth may seem to be expensive at times, it does come with the added bonus, once a year, of a free trip around the Sun!

4. The Sun is over a million times bigger than the Earth.

5. There are 200 billion other suns in our own galaxy.

6. There are well over 100 billion galaxies in the universe.

7. As big as the universe is, in order for God to be everywhere, God has to be bigger still.

When you view God as Infinite Being, the All That Is, or the Absolute, you have a sense of scale that still encompasses all of Creation, no matter how far the universe stretches. The infinity of Infinite Being encompasses all of space. The Creator aspect of Infinite Being created all of space within its consciousness.

The question is, where does the individual fit into this enormous scale of Creation?

The deeper into your own consciousness you explore, the more you become aware that the All is One. That the infinite possibilities are all expressions of the One. Beneath all expression is just the One, and the One is Infinite Being.

In the ‘All is One’ ultimate reality, you are a viewpoint of the One. Nothing can be truly separate from the One. It can only be another facet of the One.

Regardless of how huge the universe is, you are fully connected to the Creator of the stars, the planets, and all of life. We are examples of the infinite variety which is Creation and each one of us is an essential part of the whole.

If it were somehow possible for you to disappear from the universe – and it isn’t – then Creation would be infinity minus one, and that is no longer infinity. You have always existed and, in whatever form that suits you at the time, you always will.

Because people are an expression of Infinite Being, the potential within each and every one of us is infinite. There are no limits to what you will become in your journey back to your original spiritual home. And, there need be no limits in the life that you are now living.

A world that encourages all of its people to develop their full potential will be more supportive, creative and productive. Everyone will benefit.

Just think of your true human potential this way;

Infinite Being, infinite potential.

The Lightworker Objective

Posted by Admin on July 2, 2012

http://www.infinitebeing.com/1201/lightworker.htm

by Owen Waters

We are in the midst of a revolution in consciousness which is affecting everyone. Even the most staunch traditionalists in society are being dragged into a vortex of ever-increasing change.

The 80-20 rule states that 80% of any change is typically caused by 20% of the people. The 20% consists of the leading thinkers of the day.

In spiritual matters, these leading-edge people are sometimes called lightworkers or old souls, indicating that they have learned more from their experiences through many incarnations. This advanced learning is stored as wisdom in their souls and they benefit from it consciously through intuitive inner guidance.

Today’s leading-edge thinkers planned ahead to be incarnate at this time in history to help make the essential positive changes in society possible. Social science has now begun to recognize them as a major group in today’s society.

More than 1 in 5 adults have made a shift

A survey in the 1990’s by researchers Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson found that 26 percent of American adults had become what they termed Cultural Creatives. Over fifty million Americans now fit the definition of a newly emerging type of humanity that has made a comprehensive upward shift in worldview, values and way of life. In Europe, a 1997 survey conducted in fifteen European countries showed figures that are very similar to the United States.

So, in a social setting the term ‘leading-edge thinker’ actually applies to more than 20% of the people today. Most of them don’t think of themselves as leading edge, nor do they typically realize how many other people are just like them.

The term ‘lightworker’ is synonymous with ‘spiritual seeker.’ You may or may not think of yourself a lightworker but, if you’re reading this, then you fit the definition perfectly.

The two categories of Cultural Creatives identified by Ray and Anderson fit exactly into the consciousness patterns of lower and upper fourth density. While our physical bodies are currently located in upper third density, our minds are free to soar through heart-centered fourth density and into fifth-density soul consciousness.

When a person moves from the third-density function of developing basic intellect into lower fourth density, their worldview expands and they become more aware of the needs of society. They take into account the local and global effects of their own actions and the actions of others that they support. Environmental, organic and peace-making concerns all come under this frequency band of consciousness.

Then, as outlined in my book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, when people move from lower to upper fourth-density consciousness they pass through the gateway of the heart. This brings them into the first level of spiritual awareness and they become more concerned with inner development and enlightenment.

Leading thinkers are simply people whose normal frequency of consciousness is higher than average. The higher your frequency, the greater your awareness and the greater your ability to lead change by showing others how to resolve the challenges in life.

Freedom from control issues

Two popular issues today are control issues and self-empowerment. People who were raised to feel the need to be in control are now recognizing that this was just another form of fear which has no substance in reality.

Reality comes from your soul’s intuitive guidance because, at a soul level, you see everything that you need to succeed and achieve your purpose in life.

The opposite side of the same coin is the issue of self-empowerment, which is learned by people who break free of control by others and establish their own sense of inner strength and self-dependence.

The issue of self-empowerment is being explored at a societal level as well as an individual level. Every person who begins to realize that they are being deliberately disempowered and turns off the fear-inducing news broadcasts leads the world another step towards liberty from the chains that are designed to bind people to a life of servitude. Thanks to the awakening of lightworkers and leading thinkers, the world is waking up to a whole new standard of personal power and dignity.

Lightworkers often choose to experience major challenges in their lives, not because they need the experience, because they have mastered those challenges in previous incarnations. Instead, lightworkers choose to experience challenges because other people need leading thinkers to show them how to resolve these issues. The more the leading-edge people succeed in resolving these issues, the easier it becomes for the rest to follow.

There is a global mind atmosphere or ‘mind belt’ of human consciousness around the planet. You are subconsciously linked with the mind belt 24 hours a day. It affects you and you affect it. Your contribution to the mental and spiritual health of the world is made every second of every day.

The Lightworker Objective is to be a pioneer in the advancement of consciousness, often adopting certain challenges in order to work through them and, by doing so, creating a pattern in the mind belt to make it easier for others to follow.

If you are currently working through a major life challenge and feel as though you’re going round in circles and getting nowhere, STOP and look for the gift in that challenge.

The gift is that, by loving yourself and others more, you can rise above the challenge and become more of who you really are. Then, the experience changes from one of challenge to one of self-empowerment.

Real strength does not lie anywhere in the outside world. It lies within you. Once you find that inner power, you rise above any limitation and stand as a self-realized leading thinker in a world desperate for spiritual freedom.

Enlightenment Now – Lesson 1

Posted by Admin on February 6, 2012

by Owen Waters

Welcome to the 7-part course, Enlightenment Now!

Enlightenment is a goal of all people, whether they realize it or not! If it’s not a conscious goal, then it’s an unconscious goal because enlightenment is something we are designed to achieve along the way to the ultimate stage of fulfillment.

The meaning of the word enlightenment is, literally, to add light to something. By adding light to your understanding of the nature of reality, you can gain an uncanny ability to master the challenges of life.

Once a person realizes that there is a spiritual dimension to reality, life’s mysteries are more easily explained. The workings of the universe are, in essence, simplicity itself. In fact, when you come to understand how this reality was created, it all boils down to one big, “Aha!”

Once you know the basic spiritual principles, life becomes remarkably easy because then it all makes sense! These basic principles add to your existing knowledge and your existing faith in the spiritual dimension of life.

As a dedicated spiritual researcher, I have come to realize that a new version of the science of metaphysics is needed as the bridge that will bring spirituality and science together. Let’s face it, the division between science and spirituality has gone on far too long. Today, people are becoming more enlightened and they expect spiritual teachings to explain the mysteries of the cosmos, just as they expect science to explain a lot more than just nuts-and-bolts materialism!

The meaning of the word metaphysics is the study of the nature of that which is beyond the physical. It is a science that deals with the mundane as well as with higher consciousness. Spirituality focuses on higher consciousness, but often relies on faith alone, without the support of the knowledge provided by metaphysics.

My focus has always been on the spiritual aspects of metaphysics so, in 2005, I decided to put the two words together and began using the term, spiritual metaphysics. This gives definition to a field of study that brings the light of understanding to spirituality and goes beyond basic metaphysics.

An all-inclusive definition of Spiritual Metaphysics has to include the ultimate consciousness which is behind all of Creation:

Spiritual Metaphysics defines the nature of reality based upon the all-pervasive consciousness which is behind Creation and all of its manifestations.

In this 7-week course, we will look closely at the all-pervasive consciousness which is behind Creation. We will see how Creation was achieved and learn new ways to apply this knowledge to our own lives.

We will see why change is so rampant in the world today, why everything seems to be speeding up, and how to apply that insight into gaining mastery of the emerging New Reality.

Next week, we will examine the cosmic scale of Creation and see what that means to our perception of the nature of God. Now that humanity has abandoned the idea that the Earth is the center of the universe, we are ready to appreciate the vastness of Creation and therefore the scale of its Creator. More importantly, we will also see why, paradoxically, we are actually closer to the presence of God than ever.

Until next week…

Believing is Seeing

Posted by Admin on January 31, 2012

by Owen Waters

Today’s massive, ongoing Shift in consciousness is a shift from intellectual awareness to holistic awareness.

Intellectual awareness is a function of the solar plexus chakra, where mental ability is developed in a linear direction. Examples of linear thought include the performing of arithmetic and the operating of machinery. In this mode of consciousness, people have learned to develop a rigid discipline of “seeing is believing” in order to find what works and what doesn’t.

With holistic awareness, the heart chakra is developed, allowing issues of separation to be resolved and integrated. Holistic awareness means that mind, body & spirit are seen as closely related facets of the human being. This heart-centered awareness is a viewpoint of integration or wholeness which heals the fears and discords that come with solar plexus consciousness.

There is a paradox with moving from linear intellect to heart-centered consciousness. While the intellectual phase of consciousness may say that “Seeing is believing,” the holistic phase requires quite the reverse. In holistic consciousness, opposites are often both true as they are seen as opposite sides of the same coin or as polar opposites of the same issue.

Awareness that is limited to the intellect is subject to issues of separation; of us versus them, of struggling for resources that are perceived as scarce instead of solving the problem of their scarcity. Holistic awareness includes the idea that consciousness creates realities, that something must be created in consciousness – “believed” – before they can become a reality.

So, in holistic consciousness, “Believing is seeing” becomes a statement of truth, even though it is the opposite of “Seeing is believing.” Instead, it adds the understanding that reality is created by consciousness. We are not merely observers of what is. We create what is.

Traditionally, people have entered a realm of holistic, heart-centered awareness when they pass on from this life. In the afterlife, their task is to heal the fears and hates of their physical lives and transform them into love and forgiveness, thus integrating themselves with others, rather than feeling separate from them.

Today, due to The Shift, more and more people are embracing holistic, heart-centered consciousness while still alive in physical bodies. As the heart is also the gateway to spiritual consciousness, this global movement is producing a revolution in spiritual unfoldment.

Spiritual consciousness is flowering in the global consciousness of humanity as The Shift progresses. Today’s pioneers in consciousness are people just like yourself. They are exploring the new territory of unconditional love and experiencing a reunion with their own inner, spiritual connections.

The higher aspect of heart-centered consciousness is fully connected to your inner being, or soul. Your inner being is fully connected to the consciousness of the universe and to that which created the universe. Infinite Being is within each of us. We are Infinite Being.

The daily focus that we apply to our five senses and their connection to the outside world is just like performing a part in a play. We act out the part of being us, along the general theme of the type of events that we planned for this life. We ride along through the journey of this life, gaining the type of experiences that we planned to gain.

When you open up to your heart, and through that, reconnect to your own spiritual source, then you have become a part of the very future of humanity.

The Shift is heading towards a world where unconditional love and acceptance is normal, where strife is relegated to the distant past, where the true potential of human beings can express itself in the daily joy of being all that you are.

Alone In A Crowd

Alone In A Crowd

by Owen Waters

The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays are often a time of gathering together for friends and relatives. The holidays can also be a time when spiritually-aware people feel a certain aloneness, even in the midst of a crowd.

It helps to know what can cause such a sense of loneliness, and why it affects spiritually-aware people more so than others. Your outer personality is designed to focus upon the five senses and upon the experience of the outside world which those senses deliver. As it says on our home page at InfiniteBeing.com,

“Just as each snowflake is unique, so is each person. Your primary purpose in life is to experience life from one individual, unique point of view. You are an expression of Infinite Being as it experiences itself from all possible viewpoints.”

Your purpose here on Earth is to experience being an individual, and that is exactly why a sense of isolation can occur, especially during the holidays. Because we are all connected within, we need to take a moment to go beyond the separated appearance of a room full of individuals and recall the inner connection that we share with the people around us.

Recalling that inner connection is not hard. At night, in the deepest level of sleep, you reconnect with your soul family and thrill at the union you all share. Soul families consist of people who resonate to the same ‘musical’ tone of consciousness as each other. Each person has a signature tone of consciousness which represents who they are.

When you meet people in your soul family at night, you know them by the unique signature tone of consciousness that radiates from them. It doesn’t matter how their spiritual body appears to your sense of spiritual vision, you know them by how their unique consciousness signal, their ‘signature tone,’ feels to you.

Each person belongs to a primary group of soul mates which, typically, numbers somewhere around eight souls. This primary group vibrates in close harmony with other groups which, in turn, vibrate in close harmony with still more groups. The number of people in an extended soul family can easily stretch to two thousand or more individuals. Among these, especially the closer ones, are the people that you interact with in meaningful ways as you pass through life on Earth together. In fact, you plan your life as a soul before you begin your life so that you can arrange to meet significant friends who will help you through significant events and experiences in that life.

Part of your consciousness lives with the pure essence of your soul family all the time, not just at night when the main focus of your attention rises through the spirit realms to meet them. It is your awareness of that soul family-connected part of yourself which makes you yearn for the close community that you experience in those other realms of consciousness.

The holidays are a good time to remember that, no matter how different people appear to each other through their surface personalities, deep down we are all one.

Feel the connection. Feel the love that binds all of life in this universe together, and remember that, in the ultimate reality,

“We are all Infinite Being.”

The Joy of Spirituality

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Joy of Spirituality
by Owen Waters

Spiritual joy is a subtle excitement.

Compared to the excitements of the day-to-day, outer world, some people would liken spiritual joy to an inner peace.

According to physics, there are two types of excitement. One type increases activity, such as increasing the volume of a sound. The other type – the one we are referring to here – raises the frequency.

Spiritual excitement is the experience of a higher frequency of consciousness than normal.

A great example of this natural spirituality is, actually, dolphins. They have a high IQ, live totally in the Now, and they haven’t even read Eckhart Tolle’s book!

They’re so much fun to be around because they already possess fourth-density consciousness. The very same fourth-density consciousness into which the human race is evolving.

When you meet dolphins in the wild, out in the ocean, and they turn their attention towards you, something changes. All of a sudden, you’re not sure if you’re dreaming or awake. This is your first big hint that dolphins think and function in fourth-density instead of the usual third-density of human consciousness. Humans visit fourth-density consciousness mostly at night when they enter the dream state.

Dream state, fourth density, dolphins, joy, happiness – it’s all connected. Dolphins do not go around looking somber and sincere. They do, however, jump for joy at every possible opportunity. And they live in the Now.

So, if dolphins exist in fourth-density consciousness, and that is where we are headed, then why not learn from the ready-made example that performs summersaults before us? It’s not just a playful attitude. It’s an example of a pure, fourth-density flow of consciousness.

It is no accident that following your inner joy brings you to experiences that are in tune with your intended destiny in this life. Destiny is something that you plan at the level of soul consciousness (fifth density) before you are born. Your destiny is simply a plan for the issues that you wish to address in this particular lifetime.

You can stick to the plan and unfold your destiny beautifully, or you can wander off-track like people sometimes do and waste opportunities for learning from experiences which could have been yours.

Living your life on plan requires inner contact – regular meditation sessions – and the willingness to listen and respond appropriately to inner promptings.

That means putting regular meditation sessions first on your priority list of things to do every day. Once you get into those regular, inner-connection sessions, you will experience the joy of being in tune and on track with your life’s plan.

Inner joy is really a refined type of excitement.

It is also your birthright.

The Spiritual Age

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Spiritual Age
by Owen Waters

The Spiritual Age is not just another age to be documented in the pages of history books.

The Spiritual Age is a quantum leap in the evolution of humankind.

There are 12 distinct stages in the evolution of human consciousness. There is a lower tier of six material stages followed by a higher tier of six spiritual stages. Once a person shifts from the material tier into the spiritual tier of evolution, everything changes. The old rules no longer apply, and the ways of the new reality have to be understood and acted upon.

Imagine the radical change that a butterfly goes through in its transformation from an earthbound, limited chrysalis to the joyous freedom of a butterfly. Likewise, a radical transformation occurs when humans move into the spiritual stages of their evolution.

When you enter the realms of spiritual consciousness through the gateway of the heart, you begin to understand that love is more important than money, power, fame, or any of the other entrapments of material life.

Upon moving into the energy of unconditional love, it becomes clear that helping others is the key to success in life. Your viewpoint of life is expanded, just as the butterfly sees more from its position above the ground than it ever saw before while earthbound.

In the New Reality, success will be measured, not by money, but by the amount of joy in your life.

Once a person has gained an understanding of the expanded realm of the heart, they are able to move on to the next stages of spiritual consciousness. Inspiration starts to flow. Inner knowing comes to the fore. Intuition is your daily guide and helper as the wisdom of your soul comes forth to help you succeed at all your efforts in life.

With soul communion comes the blissful joy of spiritual consciousness. With that blissful joy comes inner peace and the lifting away of all the cares of the world. This is reality. This is the state that God always intended for you to discover so that you can live and love in the light of soul consciousness and become a fully-empowered spiritual being.

Your birthright is love, light, and the laughter that springs from spiritual joy.

Spiritual Growth

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

Spiritual Growth
by Owen Waters

Spiritual growth is the growing awareness of a higher level of consciousness.

A higher level of consciousness brings an expanded view of reality.

The more your view of reality expands, the more you are able to integrate any conflicting issues within yourself and claim the joy which is your natural birthright.

Soul-Based Safety

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

Soul-Based Safety
by Owen Waters

With your sense of intuition in good working order, you are never in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Last week, I pointed out that 2012 will come and go without any of the frantic disaster predictions coming true. I’ve never seen a prediction about massive disasters come true yet, and 2012 will be no exception.

On the other side of the coin, you do have to be aware that danger can lurk along anyone’s path through life, so caution is prudent. Every time you get in a car and drive, it won’t be you that’s causing the potential danger. It’ll be some unaware person who’s on the phone or texting instead of watching where they’re driving. Being aware of potential danger isn’t being fearful; it’s being sensibly cautious.

On a larger scale, it’s a no-brainer that, if you live in an earthquake zone or a hurricane zone, you will face such dangers on very rare occasions. If a natural disaster is about to affect your area, you can intuitively know about it soon enough to be prepared or even leave the area. Animals always know these things at least 3 days ahead, so it’s not hard for we humans to be similarly in tune with nature via our inner guidance.

Another no-brainer is that, because sea levels are beginning to rise, low-lying coastal homes will one day become uninhabitable. That day might be 30 years away or it might come sooner. Either way it pays to be open to intuitive warnings or senses of caution as such inner messages arise. There’s little point in moving away years ahead of time but, if you begin to get hunches to move somewhere else, that’s different. Then, you should investigate the possibilities, see how each option feels and act in line with your inner guidance. The ideal option for you will be the one that feels the most right to you.

The solution to personal safety and security has always been to be open to intuition from your soul consciousness. If you’re getting into your car and you get a sudden flash that you should take another route than the one you’d planned, then go with the hunch, even if it does make you late for work. The hunch might just be about avoiding traffic congestion or it might be a message for your safety. If it’s an urgent message, it will keep repeating itself.

The nature of such messages is subtle. They don’t loudly announce themselves like, “Ding! Incoming message!” They do quite the reverse.

They pop quietly into your awareness as an idea that your conscious mind didn’t generate. Your response will often be, “Where did that idea come from?” If the idea repeats itself two more times in the next few minutes, then you know you’re getting Ding’d big time!

Intuition works much more smoothly when you have adopted a habit of daily spiritual practices. Meditation, healing or world healing practices bring you spiritual growth by raising your frequency of consciousness. They open up your awareness to soul-based intuitive guidance and the sense of personal safety and security that this brings.

The World Healing Technique is particularly powerful and it is available online for all to see at:

The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness
by Owen Waters

Love is the saving grace of all of humanity. We contact this primal energy in our finest moments. From the moment a baby is born, it is enshrouded in the unselfish love of its mother. From the moment a person springs into action to protect others from peril, their own thoughts of survival are ‘overlighted’ by the love and caring that shines from their heart.

When a person looks back on their life, they see that one thing that mattered the most: Love. Pure, unadulterated, unconditional love.

It is the source of compassion. It is the energy of caring for others. It is the binding force which holds together the entire universe, and it flows through you whenever you simply allow it.

Love is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. It is through activation of the spiritual heart that we pass into a whole new world of expansion and joy. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we find peace, bliss, and continual inspiration. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we expand our view of life to see the issues that are important to the soul. We can then see how love can heal and how we can and should take the time to spread a little more love in the world every day, even if it is simply done in silent prayer for the well-being of others.

Let your heart open to love each and every day. When you are attuned to the natural flow of love throughout the universe, you then feel the natural flow of energy within your own being. Your senses of insight and timing develop to help you achieve more and to succeed easily at the tasks that are important to you.

The flow of love is critical to life. Without the all-pervasive love of the Creator which fills the universe, nothing would exist. For centuries, humankind has been playing a game where love and inner inspiration have been blocked off and ignored. Today, the tide is turning and people are opening up to this wonderful flow of natural energy.

Remember the love within, especially when outer circumstances seem dark. Remember that love is the gateway to the higher realms of consciousness where answers can be found to meet every challenge that life presents.

Tune into love. It will never let you down. Instead, it will set your spirit free to explore the realms of consciousness which offer greater vistas of awareness, greater peace of mind, and a sense of constant joy.

Reconnecting with Love

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

Reconnecting with Love
by Owen Waters

With the ups and downs of life, there can be times when your connection to a universe of love seems distant. The opposite of love is fear and it appears in many forms. All negative emotions including guilt and anger are expressions of fear and they can flourish in the absence of love.

Fortunately, fear has a simple antidote. Love dissolves fear, so you need to know how to bring its feeling back when it has temporarily gone away.

Gratitude is one type of expression of love which has enormous power. Gratitude is invoked when you mentally send love to those whom you appreciate. It becomes especially powerful when you send your gratitude to your concept of God the Creator for all the good things in your life and for life itself, because God will reciprocate with uplifting energies. That one step you take towards God really does bring a reaction of two steps towards you.

Gratitude takes you right out of your personal sphere of consciousness and into an expanded view of the universe.

In this way, it raises you far above the petty fears that still try to haunt people in the everyday world. Gratitude is one of the most beautiful secrets in spiritual life. It is an expression of love, and love flows through all forms of manifestation. Without love, life in the universe cannot exist. Love is the universal force of preservation which holds Creation in manifestation.

When you allow your heart to open to the universe’s flow of love, gratitude comes with that flow. Gratitude for being alive, for just existing, for just being in the flow of the adventure of life. Gratitude for the Sun that gives us life. Gratitude for the Creation of the Earth as our home in this great cosmos. Gratitude for the people that you love, and for those who share your journey through life.

Gratitude flows unimpeded from an open heart. When you allow it, gratitude will flow as freely as the sunshine, unobstructed by judgments or conditions.

Use the following affirmation and see what happens. Keep repeating it and, each time, think more about what the words mean.

The Gratitude Affirmation adds new meaning to the term, quality of life. It really works! Try it now.

Gratitude Affirmation

I am grateful for life
And all that I love
I am grateful for the Earth
And the Sun up above
I am grateful for my spirit
And my inner being
For the One that I express
And the joy of this feeling
