Finding Grace in a Time of Chaos

October 30th, 2022

During this time of apparent social, political, and interpersonal chaos, so many are overwhelmed by this ongoing conflict not just about the whole mask/vaccine issue, but the almost endless argumentative and divisive exercises we engage in.

Part of the problem is human beings only see what’s in front of their faces. In this relative world we live, with the physiology we occupy, we are limited in perception and understanding. It’s like we only see less than a grain of sand in all the vast possible volume of sand in the whole world.

We live within boxes of beliefs and philosophies that become our truths, until we evolve beyond the capacity of one box and move into a new and more expanded box. Step by step, humans and the entire creation are inherently designed to grow and evolve. That’s the DNA of God’s creation. We sometimes fight against that because we get too comfortable living within our own box and resist change. And we think our box is the truth and others must surely be wrong if they are living in a different box. And sometimes we are just afraid to step into the evolutionary unknown.

But when we start to be pressed closer and closer to the edges of the box (as we are always naturally moving in that direction of continuing and relentless evolution, whether we are aware of it or not), the longer we resist allowing ourselves to step outside the old box and embrace the new expanding possibilities, the more we suffer. I love the old Star Trek line, “Resistance is futile!” Only in this case, evolution ultimately wins out and no amount of resistance will ever overcome that natural law of the creation.

Years ago, when I suddenly went through my own death process in a hospital following major surgery, I had the opportunity to experience a different kind of perception, one that transcended the only physical structures of perception I had known and lived with in my daily life. Once the body stopped running, so did any sense of the “normal” perception processes I was formerly familiar with. It was replaced with a new kind of perception as I moved forward deeper and deeper into the unfolding transitioning journey before me.

No longer bound by the old limited style of perception, I was able to experience an expanded field of creation, before unknown to me. One that I realized went way beyond, yet not separate from the more dense aspects of our worldly existence. (Like two sides of a coin, each side appearing to be distinctly different than the other. But turn the coin edgewise and notice that there is something in between the two sides that gives rise to, supports and sustains both sides—thus, the two sides uniquely exist but are inseparable from each other and from the underlying essence that both sides exist within.)

The ease and grace of this style of perception allowed me to understand how we are all eternally connected to one another and to every possible particle of the entire field of creation—from the most densely defined worldly existence to the finest most sublime beginning particles of the universe and beyond.

So while we are debating and arguing over personal opinions of whether to wear a mask, get vaccinated, or neither, as well as all the other seemingly endless points of contention we may have with one another, it can be helpful to realize that we are operating within a limited system of perception and understanding. Furthermore, the more we resist and cling to our boxes and demand that others live within our boxes, the more division and suffering we will experience.

Human evolution of consciousness is simply part of the blueprint of God’s design. It is the fuel that keeps the creation from becoming stagnant and dying—no matter what we may think or say about it! In reality, it is a perfect and beautiful design. So perhaps we can take a piece of popular biblical advise when engaging in conversation regarding opposing opinions, as we walk amid the landscape of an almost unlimited field of individual boxes: “Give Grace…”

    "I had a bad reaction from inadvertently breathing some vapors from the glue I was using to decorate a costume that I would be wearing in a play a couple of days later. My throat closed down and I could hardly speak. I felt terrible and had no energy. I couldn't imagine how on earth I would be able to perform, as I had many speaking lines to perform. After a session with Thomas, I quickly regained my energy and I was able to perform without difficulty. This really saved the day for me! Thanks, Thomas." -- JB, Actor, Fairfield, IA
    "I had chronic ankle pain due to working in an auto manufacturing plant and walking on concrete for most of my life. After a long-distance session, that actually took place while I was asleep, I woke up and had no pain in my ankles or anywhere else, for that matter. And, I was able to enjoy working outdoors all morning with my brother--all without a lick of pain. This really works." -- CF, Mechanic, Lexington, MO
    "I had a constant buzzing and ringing in my right ear that was driving me crazy. I always had to have a TV or radio on during the day and sleep with a fan on to mask the constant internal noise. I tried supplements that didn’t help and then visited an ENT physician and they really had no solution. Well, apparently our sessions have definitely had an impact. The buzzing has completely subsided and I only occasionally hear any ringing. This is such an amazing relief that it’s hard to express. Thanks again for your continued help and support, I couldn’t recommend the sessions highly enough. -- Best Regards, Tom R, Chicago
    (Thomas): During the group session, it became clear to me that there was some deep distress in Ken’s knees where I noticed the brilliant blue spectrums beginning to appear. During the session Ken said that he had briefly felt the pain in his knees intensify and then suddenly it was as if all the pain and discomfort he had been having just poured out through the bottom of his feet. That was it -- the pain was gone and never came back.
    "The self-treatments have helped me in healing some physical issues and I'm sleeping better than ever. I've also been trained by Thomas to use the Healing Spectrums in my work as a counselor and I seem to be able to 'tune in' more quickly to the core issues of my clients. This is really valuable to both me and my clients." -- Cheryl Bailey, Counselor, IA

    "Before the course, I was only sleeping for 2-3 hours a night, but since Thomas' course I'm sleeping unbelievably better! 8-9 hours every night. This technique is a true blessing." - Katherine, Counselor/Coach, NY
    “I have been very impressed by the strength of the energy when doing the self-treatments. Last night I was surprised how quickly I went from feeling restless to very relaxed with a short session. Thanks so much!” — Jill
    “After our session on Thursday I felt a smooth, blissful feeling for the next few hours. In general I continue to feel more settled, grounded and calm and I’m sleeping very deeply now.” — Mary
