A new perspective

I recently read a book titled “The Moses Code”.  I had read it many months ago, went to see a screening of the movie based on the book (which left half the book out, like most movies do) but didn’t really take it to heart.  I reread it and THIS time, paid attention.  If you haven’t read it, it’s basically a re-interpretation of Moses’ words “I am that I am.”   I’ve never read the Bible, so I don’t know what the biblical interpretation of that would be, but  the author has basically added a comma, so it reads “I am that, I am”.  This is to mean that every person is connected to EVERY other person.  It means we all have the same human capabilities, characteristics, traits and emotions, both the good AND the bad. 

This is a helpful way of looking at things when you are faced with a certain person that “rubs you the wrong way”.  We all have those in our lives, don’t we!  If you are able to think to yourself “I am that, I am” or “I have those capabilites within me as well”, you are able to gain a greater sense of empathy towards that person.  It helps you commect with the person, and if you take the time, you can get a better understanding of why they are behaving the way they are (most of the time, it’s NOT just to piss you off!)  thus diminishing the urge to reach out and strangle them.  This works… I have tried it.  Works almost better than imagining that person wearing pink fuzzy bunny ears and hopping up and down.

It is also supposed to be helpful manifesting something you want but don’t yet have.  This concept was introduced in the book “The Secret”, but in “The Moses Code”, instead of just fixating or meditating on what you want, you imagine actually becoming part of what you want, be it a career, an object like a car or a new wardrobe (I am that ________, I am) – anything you can possibly imagine!  That may sound silly to some, but personally I think it is worth a shot.  I have noticed that the universe provides in many mysterious ways, and this could be just another way to enrich our already abundant lives.  I have not tried this method of manifestation yet, because I have so much already.  But once I decide that there is something else that I want, I’ll give it a go and let you know how it turns out.  Who knows – we do plan on going househunting at some point 🙂

Just my thoughts for the day.  Wishing you all a great day full of happiness!
