METRON 2-18-18 – Re-Imagining Your Life and Making Next-Level Thinking a Reality – Part V

Today’s Notes:
I – “Once you were alienated from God and were enemies IN YOUR MINDS because of your evil behavior.”
(Colossians 1:21 – NIV)

II – “And you, being once estranged and ENEMIES IN COMPREHENSION…”
(Colossians 1:21 – CLV)

III – “And so you…at one time people having been alienated away (being estranged; being rendered as belonging to another; = having been put out of the family) and enemies (or: hated ones) by the DIVIDED THOUGHTS (in the DUALISTIC PERCEPTIONS and things going through the mind in every direction)…”
(Colossians 1:21 – JMNT)

IV – “One of the greatest life lessons I’ve learned has been to dream new dreams. When a dream is fulfilled, it shouldn’t become a straitjacket, constricting a person’s evolution and progress. Instead, it should be a stepping-stone to the next thing. When a dream shatters, you should pick up the pieces and create a new one. It won’t be the same as the broken one, but you can hope it will be as vibrant and as exciting.” ― Jai Pausch

V – “In Daniel 1:4 it records that Daniel had understanding of science. The word ‘science’ in Hebrew (#4093) means: Consciousness. Daniel understood the importance of maintaining a God-consciousness. He understood the vital importance of the awareness, and sowing the seed of the Word into the ground of his heart awareness. The key for Daniel was that he would not eat of the king’s meat nor drink of the king’s drink; instead he ate ‘pulse’ which is that which comes from a seed. In other words, he would only eat of the incorruptible seed of the Word. He would only drink ‘water’ which depicts that which was within him, or the ‘Spirit of the Word’. The 3 Hebrew boys that were thrown into the fiery furnace which was heated up 7 times hotter than ever before, had the awareness that the fire was a ‘NON-POWER’ unto them. Why? Because they, along with Daniel, knew the importance of the conscious awareness of the ‘Spirit of the Word’ as opposed to the ‘letter of the word’. What is the difference, some may ask? The ‘Spirit of the Word’ is that which comes from the inside, and the ‘letter of the word’ is that which one merely reads from a book. While I do believe in both, yet one can read the scriptures and receive absolutely no spiritual awakening or quickening whatsoever. It was the ‘Spirit of the Word’ which Daniel and his friends partook of, digested and received in their heart awareness. They had the awareness of one BODY, therefore their bodies were not burned. They had the awareness of, or were CLOTHED with the Oneness of God, therefore their clothes did not smell of smoke (religious ideas and concepts). Then lastly, they had the awareness that they were the glory of God manifestly, therefore their hair (glory) was not even singed. The heart awareness of one body, one righteousness and one glory, is more than enough to reign and have dominion in every aspect of life.” — Kay Fairchild

VI – “Getting to the next level always requires ending something, leaving it behind, and moving on. Growth demands that we move on. Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.” — Henry Cloud

VII – “Those of us who went to school 20 or 30 years ago were taught that the brain is hardwired, meaning that by the time we’re adults, we have a certain number of brain cells that are arranged in fixed patterns or neural circuits, and that as we get older, we lose some of those circuits. We thought that we would inevitably turn out like our parents in many ways, because we could only use the same neural patterns that we genetically inherited from them.
Neuroscientists now say that was a mistake. The great news is, each of us is a work in progress, throughout our life. Every time we have a thought, different areas of our brain surge with electrical current and release a mob of neurochemicals that are too numerous to name. Thanks to functional brain scanning technology, we can now see that our every thought and experience causes our brain cells, or neurons, to connect and disconnect in ever-changing patterns and sequences. In fact, we have a natural ability called neuroplasticity, which means that is we learn new knowledge and have new experiences; we can develop new networks or circuits of neurons, and literally change our mind.” — Dr. Joe Dispenza
