Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World Excerpt from Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World

The Secrets Unfold with Riddles and Rhymes

We must be open to many levels of reality and ways of looking at reality. Theology, science, history, archeology, and psychology have all been trying to discover the truth about how life evolved and what life is. Science can prove many things about the evolution of our planet and the universe. There have been some good scientific experiments on spirit communication, and I hope that these experiments will continue. However, means of connecting with the world of the spirit cannot be enclosed in scientific theories and in the results of experiments. Spirit speaks to us in too many direct and personal ways that are not easy to test or evaluate. There are some spiritual experiences that go beyond our understanding, and these experiences cannot be fully tested. If you and I want to allow ourselves to merge with Divine Consciousness, we must allow ourselves to put logical thoughts to the side for the moment and listen to the language of the soul, which is very mystical and often poetic. While logic is a great tool, it is not the appropriate tool for every task imaginable. It is my impression that the spiritual secrets of the universe will not come to us through logical thinking. Riddles and rhymes take us into another level of consciousness, where we can perceive the ultimate truth.

Many life experiences help to take us out of our everyday thoughts and pave the way toward more spiritual realms. I can sit and weep watching the Disney movie Pocahontas. I can cry tears of joy watching Pooh's Heffalump Movie. These movies are for kids, but are we not all kids at heart? And if we become too sophisticated to enjoy a beautiful children's story, have we lost something? My daughter Jennifer is forty-two years old and a dedicated Disney fan: check out www.brokehoedown.com. She and our grandson have visited Disney parks around the world, and I am not sure if these trips are mostly for my grandson or my adult daughter. As a woman in my sixties, a trip to Walt Disney World takes me outside of myself and away from ordinary, everyday thoughts. Disney creates an environment where we can let our imaginations run free. Obviously Walt Disney World is not a spiritual site, but when I think about what it takes in order for most of us to let go of our structured thinking and our reasoning minds, the theme park is a great place to go to relax the mind. When I am at Walt Disney World, I get in touch with feelings of love and beauty. I feel empowered and feel that anything one can imagine is possible. It is odd, but Walt Disney's Tinkerbell may take me closer to the truth than many scientific theories can.

It is in letting go that we can receive from the world of the spirit. And that is why we receive many messages in riddles and rhymes: because these messages require us to venture outside our ordinary, everyday thoughts in order to understand them. Riddles and rhymes, stories and songs are great teachers.
