What are the Ten Promises?

The Bible gives us the ten commandments. Did you know that there were also ten promises? No one ever told me about these. I heard Yogi Bhagan’s lecture recently from August 6, 1991 and I want to share these Promises of God with you. They were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

First Commandment
Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.
First Promise
Thou shall conquer the Earth. If the Lord God Creator is pleased with thee, all creation shall be thy servant.

Second Commandment
Thou shall not take the Name of the Lord in vain.
Second Promisetenpromises
Thou shall never be polluted.

Third  Commandment
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Third Promise
Thou shall live in peace and rest.

Fourth Commandment
Honor thy father and thy mother.
Fourth Promise
Thy identity shall be perfect. Heavenly Father, Motherly Earth.

Fifth Commandment
Thou shalt not kill.
Fifth Promise (Longevity Promise)
When thou shall Spiritually develop in yourself non-killing instincts, Mother Nature shall protect you and take care of you.

Sixth Commandment
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Sixth Promise
Thy purity shall be granted.

Seventh  Commandment
Love thy neighbor.
Seventh Promise
And the entire neighborhood shall love thee.

Eighth Commandment
Thou shalt not steal.
Eighth Promise
All shall belong to thee

Ninth Commandment
Thou shalt not bear false witness.
Ninth Promise
The power to witness My Creation shall be thine.

Tenth Commandment
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife nor thy neighbor’s goods (belongings).

The Universe shall never question thy will and all good shall come to thee. The real wife  of God is the creation – the creation will never question thy will.

These promises give a new perspective to the commandments. They change everything, don’t they?

The Quality of our Experience is Determined by the Quality of our Attention

You may have heard the saying “Energy flows where attention goes” or “Thoughts become things” and “You get what you think about, whether you want it or not”.  All three of these statements are from different disciplines. And they all point to the same aspect of this world we live in – what you squality of our experienceee and feel depends on what you place your focus on.

When I took Level 1, I hadn’t thought much about physics. I had manifested many amazing things in my life – things that couldn’t be explained by the way the man-made world “normally” worked.   But it had been largely unconscious manifestations.  An elderly Indian gentlemen once told me emphatically what good karma I had – I think he was right.

During my Level 1 class there was talk about physics and I was intrigued. I am a learner by nature so I started learning about quantum physics. Over about eight years, as I developed my own practices, I came to understand more and more how magical this world is – how magical we are.

Quantum physicists will tell you that particles are essentially probability waves. They only stop “waving” and become a single entity when we observe them.  When we put our attention on them. Just think about what that means. When you put your attention on something, that particle stops being all possible things and becomes that one thing you are observing.

And it doesn’t matter if this is in your minds eye or in front of you. Now that’s magical.
So what are you thinking about?

Row Your Boat

Such a simple little song that was so fun to sing all together, in rounds, over and over.
Just thinking of rounds, I realized that this simple song is actually the quick guide to successful living on this planet. Let me break it down for you….
Row, row, row
– the repetition gives away the importance of this. We must take action, and more action.
Your boat – the key being ‘your’. You have absolute control over where you go in your own boat. But there’s no way you can row someone else’s – maybe steer a little – but at what cost to your own song?
Gently – this word should be underlined a few times. Always gentle with yourself. You are the most important person in your world.
Down the stream – not upstream or against the current, not across the flow – always with the flow.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily – Yes. This means more joy than action. Joy in action.
Life is but a dream – this is not a metaphor. It’s really all a dream. And we each create our own dream as we see fit.

So what is the recipe for success by rowing? How do I dream heaven on earth? I take responsibility for my own boat, rowing with the flow, full of joy and laughter and totally aware that this dream that is my life is my own creation.
