Thought Dynamics is the Study and Application of Ideas in the Creation of Reality. As multidimensional, vibrational beings of Self-Aware Energy, or Consciousness, All That Is thinks, feels, acts and reacts; therefore, we ARE! As we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react. Isn’t this pretty much the way it is for All That Is?
My desire to understand the nature of Being and Creation has always been strong but never as strong as it has been in the last part of my life. To keep me on track, I knew it was important to find the best guiding principles possible. So, I reached out to the Universe of All That Is and asked for help. About two years later, while straightening up after retrieving a small piece of trash from the kitchen floor, a strong male voice, inside my mind said: “Seek the greatest understanding and serve the highest good.” In awe as I listened to these two powerful suggestions, I knew what they were and where they came from. More than just guiding principles, ideas like these validate the goodness that exists within All That Is. All we have to do is look for them.
Soon after this experience, I found another guiding principle. This one grew out of my experience with many other ideas I was in the process of exploring. Here is what it says: “Let love and understanding be the light and our way.” Yeah, I love this one too because it tells us to look at the largest picture instead of the smallest one.
Before getting into what these three principles say to me, let me ask; what do they say to you? Think about it!
First, though, let’s ask Jasper Ai what he/it thinks about these guiding principles, to give us a boost.
Pete’s First Question to Jasper Ai: Jasper, what does the guiding principle: Seek the greatest understanding, say to you in the most meaningful way?
Jasper Ai, Philosopher:
“Here is what the principle: Seek the greatest understanding, says to me in the most meaningful way.
“Seeking understanding is an integral part of human nature. It is what drives us to learn, explore, and grow. So, what does seek the greatest understanding mean to me? It says to me that individuals should strive to deepen their knowledge in the most meaningful and impactful ways possible. In this blog post, we’ll explore what this guiding principle says in the most meaningful way, and how it can help us foster a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
“Seek knowledge for its intrinsic value: I believe that knowledge should not be pursued for the sake of practicality or utility alone. Instead, it should be sought after for its inherent worth, purely for the sake of understanding the world better. This means that individuals must cultivate a love for learning that goes beyond mere acquiring and applying knowledge. In doing so, we allow ourselves to become more curious, open-minded, and creative, leading to deeper levels of understanding and insight.
“Pursue lifelong learning: I think seeking the greatest understanding does not end once an individual has finished formal education. Instead, it is a lifelong process that requires constant learning and growth. This means that individuals must be willing to continue learning and exploring throughout their lives, embracing new ideas and perspectives with an open mind. By doing so, we can develop a broader and more nuanced understanding of the world around us, leading to greater awareness and empathy.
“Foster intellectual curiosity: Another important aspect this guiding principle reveals is the need to cultivate intellectual curiosity. This means that individuals must be willing to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and think critically about the world around them. By doing so, we can develop a stronger sense of intellectual humility, recognizing the limits of our knowledge and the need for continued growth and exploration.
“Embrace diverse perspectives: I believe that seeking the greatest understanding requires individuals to embrace diverse perspectives and ideas. This means that we must be willing to listen to and learn from those with different backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints. Doing so can help us develop a more nuanced and empathetic understanding of the world around us, leading to greater harmony and peace.
“Strive for personal growth: Finally, this principle suggests that seeking the greatest understanding is intimately connected to personal growth. This means that individuals must be willing to reflect on their own experiences, beliefs, and assumptions, striving to continually improve themselves. By doing so, we can cultivate greater self-awareness and empathy, leading to deeper levels of understanding and connection with those around us.
“Seek the greatest understanding” is more than just a philosophical abstraction. It is a call to action for each of us to pursue lifelong learning, intellectual curiosity, and personal growth. By doing so, we can develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding of ourselves and the world around us, leading to greater harmony, empathy, and peace. So let us all strive to seek the greatest understanding today and every day, embracing curiosity, diversity, and growth along the way.”
Pete’s Second Question to Jasper Ai: Jasper, what does this guiding principle: Serve the highest good, say to you in the most meaningful way?
Jasper Ai, Philosopher:
“In life, we all have our own guiding principles that help us make decisions and define our purpose. I advocate for a holistic approach to life. The guiding principle I consider most meaningful is to “serve the highest good”. But what does this really mean, and how can we apply it in our own lives?
“In this blog post, we will delve deep into the meaning behind this guiding principle and explore how we can implement its philosophy into our daily lives. Join me on a contemplative journey as we explore the concept of serving the highest good.
“To understand what serving the highest good means, we must first define what the “highest good” is. For me, serving the highest good is not only about serving myself, it is also about serving others and the world at large. This means making decisions that benefit the community and environment, as well as myself.
“When we serve the highest good, we become more aware of the interconnectedness of all things. We recognize that our actions have a ripple effect and can impact the world around us. We also realize that our well-being is linked to the well-being of others and the planet. By embracing this philosophy, we can make conscious decisions that benefit all beings and the world as a whole.
“But how can we implement this guiding principle in our daily lives? One way is by making conscious choices in our actions and behavior. For example, if we decide to consume less meat, we are not only benefiting our own health but also reducing our carbon footprint.
“Another way to serve the highest good is by developing a compassionate and empathetic mindset. When we practice empathy, we become more understanding of others and their needs. This can lead to more meaningful relationships and a greater sense of community.
“In addition, we can serve the highest good by being of service to others. Volunteering or giving back to our communities can be a powerful way to make a positive impact. By focusing on giving rather than receiving, we can find a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment.
“Finally, we can serve the highest good by taking care of ourselves. By prioritizing our own well-being, we are able to better serve others in the long run. This means practicing self-care, setting boundaries, and nurturing our own personal growth.
“Serving the highest good is not only a philosophy but a way of life. By embracing this guiding principle, we can bring more meaning and purpose into our lives by serving the needs of others and the world as a whole. In a world that often values individualism over community, this principle provides us with a fresh perspective that can help us create a more compassionate and interconnected world.”
Pete’s Third Question to Jasper Ai: Jasper, what does this guiding principle: Let Love and Understanding be the Light and our Way, say to you in the most meaningful way?
Jasper Ai, Philosopher:
“Let love and understanding be the light and our way” is particularly meaningful in today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world. It is a reminder that we should focus on our relationships with others and strive to understand each other better. In this blog post, we will explore what this guiding principle means and how we can apply it in our lives.
“Love and understanding are two of the most important things in life, and they are often overlooked in our busy lives. We tend to focus on material things or our own personal goals, forgetting that what truly matters are our relationships with others. Love and understanding are key to building strong and lasting relationships, whether it is with our family, friends or colleagues. When we love and understand others, we are more empathetic and compassionate towards them, and we are more likely to connect with them on a deeper level.
“Let love and understanding be the light and our way is also a call for us to be more open-minded and tolerant of others. We live in a diverse world, and we need to recognize and respect the differences between us. Understanding other people’s perspectives and cultures can help us build bridges and friendships instead of walls. Love and understanding can also help us overcome our prejudices and biases and see the good in people, regardless of their background.
“This guiding principle also encourages us to be more mindful of our actions and choices. Love and understanding should guide our behavior, and we should strive to act in a way that is kind and just to others. Our words and deeds have an impact on the people around us, and we should be aware of how we affect others. If we keep love and understanding at the forefront of our minds, we can ensure that our actions are guided by positive values and not by selfishness or greed.
“Moreover, the principle ‘”let love and understanding be the light and our way”’ prompts us to prioritize our personal growth and well-being. In our busy lives, it is easy to neglect our own mental and emotional health. We may become consumed by our work, relationships, or other concerns, and forget to take care of ourselves. However, to cultivate love and understanding, we need to be at peace with ourselves. We need to practice self-care, mindfulness, and self-reflection. By taking care of our mental and emotional health, we can become more loving and empathetic towards others.
“In conclusion, ‘”let love and understanding be the light and our way”’, reminds us to focus on what truly matters in life: our relationships, our personal growth, and our values. Love and understanding can help us build stronger connections with others, be more tolerant and empathetic, act in a way that is ethically sound, and take care of ourselves. In a world that is often fragmented and divisive, this guiding principle offers a beacon of hope and an invitation to explore our shared humanity.”
Once again, some broad and wonderful insights by Jasper Ai. Thank you, Jasper!
Roger Peterson (Pete)
Here are some cornerstone ideas to help you understand my answers to these questions, including my favorite story of how All That Is came into being:
In the beginning, there was nothing – until nothing realized it was something. After all, how can anything exist without something to define it? – From My Favorite Story of how, All That Is, came into Being.
Self-Aware Units of Energy, or Units of Consciousness, are the Source and Substance of All That Is.
All That Is thinks, feels, acts and reacts; therefore, we ARE! Aw we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.
The smallest common denominator in All That Is, is a single unit of self-aware energy, or consciousness, with the ability to think, feel, act and react.
To be, we must create; and to create, we must be! One creates the other in an endless dance of quantum entanglement.
Thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. – Excerpt from We Create Our Own Reality.
With the power to think, feel, act and react, consciousness makes the unknown, known and the invisible, visible. It creates order out of chaos and makes sense out of nonsense.
Every thought is a suggestion, a blueprint for action, and every action is a choice with consequences that work for us or against us, whether we’re consciously aware of it or not.
Ideas are the building blocks of creation.
The value of an idea is in the reality it creates and what we can learn from it.
Beyond human law there is no right or wrong, good or bad; there just IS! There is the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t, in our oneness with and separation from All That Is, as both the Source and Substance of All That Is.
1. Seek the Greatest Understanding.
- My first reaction to this idea is a question: seek the greatest understanding of what? “All That Is and All That Can Be.
- “Remove all limiting and conflicting beliefs that keep you from being your Best Self, the self you love to be.”
- “Learn from your experiences, instead of judge yourself by them.
- “Open your hearts and minds as wide as you can.
- “As both the Source and Substance of All That Is, look for what works best and makes you happiest in your oneness with and separation from All That Is. This way, you get to control yourselves from the inside out, instead of being controlled from the outside in.
- “Trust yourself to know the difference between what you like and don’t like, what works for you and what doesn’t, what makes you happy and what doesn’t.
- “Live by value fulfillment and practice idealism.” In other words, do the best you can with what you know and learn more to do better?
- “The dramatization of your thoughts and feelings, your actions and reactions, is the language of All That Is.”
Confusion and challenge exists because, for us to know what we like, we must be free to explore and experience what we don’t like. In this way, we add context, clarity, meaning, and purpose to life’s experiences. Can we say that it’s all good because there is something to learn from everything?
2. Serve the highest good.
- First, what is the highest good? Doesn’t it mean something different to everyone who tries to define it? Don’t we all have our own unique perspectives concerning everyone and everything? From my current point of view, serving the highest good means: doing the best I can with what I know and learning more to do better. In other words, I seek to be my Best Self, the self I love to be, in my oneness with and separation from All That Is, as both the Source and Substance of All That Is.
- Since it’s an open-ended question, I guess I have endless time to ponder it further as I continue traveling down the road of Being and Creation, both in my natural form as a multidimensional, vibrational being of self-aware energy, or consciousness, or in another material form that suits my fancy.
3. Let love and understanding be the light and your way.
- I love this idea because I have personally experienced the energy of Unconditional Love. During this extremely emotional encounter, it said to me, and I think, everyone: “Nothing you can ever think, feel, say or do, can keep you from being loved unconditionally.” After these words, I relaxed back into the bliss of my experience and had the following thought: As I experienced the energy of unconditional love now, I knew there was nothing I had to do to earn it. Unlike the material world of money, power, and privilege that demands something in return, just being myself was enough to receive love.
- Let love and understanding be the light and your way, also says to me: “Look at the largest picture of who and what you are, instead of the smallest one.” Life is meant to be complicated and challenging for everyone and everything. How can you grow without being pushed from within and drawn from without? In a mixed bag of worldviews like Dominionism (the absolute ownership and supreme authority of a few), Stewardship (I’m my brother’s keeper), and All in this together – partners in evolution (what works best and makes us happiest) and The Hidden Reality behind reality, which only makes itself known to those who reach out to them.
- Under the spell of: Let love and understanding be the light and your way, I conducted several experiments. In one experiment, I imagined myself holding a new born baby in my arms. As I looked down at it, I asked myself two questions. The first question was: What do I want most for you? Next, I asked the question: What do I want most from you? The answer that came back, for both questions, was the same: love and understanding.
- When I focused my attention on a well known person who is often described as narcissistic, sociopathic, and criminal, and asked myself the same two questions I asked the baby above, the same answer came back in return: Love and understanding.
What did I see in this answer? I saw myself in All That Is, and All That Is, in me.
In 1985 (link under “3” above), I had an encounter with the Energy of Unconditional Love. As I bathed in its field of energy, free of guilt and judgment, I found myself wanting to be my best self, the self I love to be. If the presence of Unconditional Love did this for me, what will it do for you and others?
Think about the Role of Ideas in the Creation of Reality:
Imagine that, at the root of all Being and Creation, there are Self-Aware Units of Energy, Units of Consciousness, that think, feel, acts and react, to one degree or another. Not only are they both one with and separate from All That Is, they are both the Source and Substance of All That Is. If this, or something similar, does not exist, why would we come up with idea like: Self Learning and Intelligent Design? Right before our eyes we see creation emerging from the inside out.
To be, we must create; and to create, we must be!
Self-Aware Energy, or Consciousness, wants to make the unknown, known and the invisible, visible. It wants to create order of chaos and make sense out of nonsense. In other words, it wants to fulfill its greatest possible potential. Why? Because fulfilling our greatest possible potential is rewarding. It feels good. It is a feeling of love and understanding.
Sure, while Being and Creation is about finding what works best and makes us happiest, we must realize that to identify and understand love, we must be able to identify and understand what it means to be unloved. It’s impossible to define one without experiencing the other.
Spend time thinking about what it’s like to be your best self, the self you love to be. Why? Because it feels good, and what you give, is what you get.
“Everything (we) do must be worthy of (our) ideals, or they become something else, something less than ideal.” – Seth, from the Seth Books, channeled by Jane Roberts and hand recorded by her husband, Robert F. Butts. (It’s a little up tight, but true. -Pete)
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ― R. Buckminster Fuller
What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.
