Understanding The Universal Law of Compensation

''The wings of Time are black and white, Pied with morning and with night. Mountain tall and ocean deep Trembling balance duly keep.'' — Ralph Waldo Emerson This stanza from 'Compensation' conveys the idea that time is a blend of contrasting experiences, marked by both light and darkness. The phrase "wings of Time" symbolizes the passage of time, which encompasses both positive (morning) and negative (night) aspects. The mention of "Mountain tall and ocean deep" suggests the vast and varied dimensions of existence. The imagery of "Trembling balance duly keep" underscores the delicate equilibrium that is maintained despite these opposing forces. Overall, the stanza highlights the duality and balance inherent in the passage of time and the world's diverse experiences. _____ ''The Universe always seeks to balance itself, in fact, it demands it.''  — Michael Corthell None of us can avoid the consequen

The Power of Optimism: How to Stay Positive During Hard Times

"Lemons symbolize the unexpected hurdles we encounter. But those who possess the power to transform them into lemonade hold the key to unlocking limitless possibilities." by Michael Corthell You have your positive mindset, and things have been going pretty well, but then things 'seemingly' start to take a turn for the negative. We've all experienced days when it seems that there's nothing but problem after problem. Days like these threaten our strong, positive mindsets and may, if not dealt with immediately, stop us from moving forward. We may even tell ourselves that we should have seen it coming. Maybe we did see it coming but didn't want to believe it. This can cause guilt. What do we do? The first thing is we accept these negatives as inevitable and don't panic. Then, we get back to basics. Understand: Everything happens for a reason and is temporary. Happiness in life is dependent on your approach to life, not what happens to you

Enthusiasm Amplified: Your Key to Unstoppable Success!

"Zeal is the fire that ignites our inner spirit." by Michael Corthell Being enthusiastic about life is an essential requirement for leading a joyful, happy, and fulfilled existence. Enthusiastic individuals are universally appealing; their vibrant energy is contagious. We naturally gravitate towards those who exude passion, inspiration, and determination because they are effective doers who motivate and uplift us. ''Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.''    —Dale Carnegie Positive enthusiasm stands as your most valuable asset. It surpasses the value of power, wealth, or influence because it not only encompasses them but also brings forth even greater rewards. Merge this positive enthusiasm with faith and proactive initiative, and you're poised to revolutionize the world! Do you aspire to cultivate greater enthusiasm? Wondering about the pivotal approach to i

How to Cultivate an Abundance Mindset to Attract Riches

Manifesting and The Universal Law of Consciousness Part One

''What we feel strongly such as love or hate determines what we manifest, and what we manifest is our reality.'' Michael Corthell The Law of Consciousness states that the world and everything within it are the external manifestations of our conditioned consciousness. In other words, our consciousness is the underlying cause and substance of our reality. Therefore, if we want to understand the nature of reality and create our desired life, we must first understand and master the Law of Consciousness. To understand and use the Law of Consciousness effectively, you need to understand the relationship between your conscious and subconscious minds. The conscious mind is personal and selective, while the subconscious mind is impersonal and non-selective. This means that the conscious mind is the realm of effects, while the subconscious mind is the realm of causes. You have the innate ability to create anything you want by influencing your subconscious mind. You do this wheth

ESSAY: Consciousness is the Only Reality, Therefore All Consciousness is God

  '' Quantum theory, a branch of physics that deals with the behavior of matter at the atomic and subatomic level, provides some intriguing evidence to support the view that consciousness and God are one and the same.'' Michael Corthell Consciousness is the awareness of one's own existence and the ability to experience the world. It is what allows you to know that you are a sentient being with thoughts, feelings, and experiences. God is the supreme being or creator of the universe. God is often described as being all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present. Some people believe that consciousness and God are one and the same. This view is supported by the fact that consciousness is the only thing that we know for sure exists. Everything else, including the physical world, could be an illusion. Quantum theory, a branch of physics that deals with the behavior of matter at the atomic and subatomic levels, provides some intriguing evidence to support the view that consci

God in the Grasshopper

  "Grasshopper's leap, a fleeting sweep, in nature's rhythm, secrets seep. Life's vibrant pulse, in bounds, it keeps." by Michael Corthell In the Summer of 1962, I was 9 years old. We lived in Boise Idaho. On a sunny, warm day in June. I was playing in the sideyard and two police officers came to our front door. They spoke to my mother. After they left I went to see why they were there. My mother was crying. She said the policemen came to tell her that my grandfather had died. We didn't have a phone. I don't remember how long I sat with my Mom but after a while, I went back out to play in the yard thinking about my grandfather and his death. I had just seen him a few months before when we took a trip back east to visit him and my grandmother on their farm in New Hampshire. As I sat on the dusty lawn I noticed a dead dried grasshopper. I picked it up and like I do now marveled at the workmanship that went into the creation of its body. As I was doing that
