The Miraculous Mechanics of Manifestation
Just because the mechanics of manifestation are indeed of a miraculous nature doesn’t mean they need to be mysterious, and they most certainly are not. In this chapter we’re going to move into the heart of the book by looking at an overview of what actually happens that brings about all change. This is where we will first peer behind the curtains of time and space to appreciate that virtually all of the invisible mechanics that bring about change are mechanics we program from our side of the curtains. In other words, we’ll see that the Universe (or “life’s magic”), taking its cue from our conscious thoughts, words, and actions, literally grabs the baton and runs, performing innumerable, incalculable, and mind-numbing “miracles” that eventually turn our thoughts into things.
The Greatest Secret
When I was creating this material, I thought: what better place to begin a talk on the miraculous mechanics of manifestation than with the very first manifestation ever, the jungles of time and space? Don’t you wonder how they all came about? Don’t they boggle your mind? Don’t you wonder at the intelligence and brilliance that had to have measured out all the details— the spectacular beauty, the impossible perfection, and the infinite vastness? Did you know that modern-day scientists estimate that there are more than one hundred billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy alone! And further, they conservatively estimate there are at least 100 billion more galaxies! That’s ten sextillion stars or more, not even counting planets. Yet, on this floating space emerald that we call home, scientists also estimate that there are at least one hundred million different species inhabiting air, land, and sea—of which humans are just one. Every crack, crevice, nook, and cranny on this planet is teeming with life! Did you know that there are microorganisms that thrive in hot lava pits? Did you know that there are whales off the eastern coast of Canada that communicate by song to whales 2,000 miles away in the Caribbean Sea? Did you know that there is a bird (the Arctic Tern) that takes off every year from Siberia at the onset of winter to fly 8,000 miles away to warmer weather in Australia, doing much of its flying while it sleeps? And in our own backyards, parks, and gardens there are caterpillars that fall asleep only to wake up as butterflies! Isn’t it amazing? Don’t you wonder how it all came about? Have you considered what kind of mind could have fathomed the details? I used to ask myself these questions when I’d take a break from writing, kicking pinecones around my backyard for my dogs while pondering, to the point that my brain would sometimes ache. And then one day, as if struck by lightning, I got the answer. It gave me total peace. I’ll never have to ask those questions again.
