Energy, Accidents and Attraction

I saw something the other night on the deaths in Sedona and it prompted this post.

7 principles in Huna I would like to share…..

  1. The world is what you think it is—– Your mind is key, your thoughts are what shape your world.
  2. There are no limits—- Energy is unlimited, you are unlimited, the world is unlimited.
  3. Energy flows where attention goes—- Your attention will guide your energy, there is no need to manipulate it.
  4. Now is the moment of power—- This moment  is the most powerful, your present is related to your past & future.
  5. To love is to be happy with—Love and happiness are intertwined, when you find one the other will follow.
  6. All power comes from within—- Power is within you, not outside of you.
  7. There is always another way to do everything.—Be flexible, if something doesn’t work try something else.

Simple down to earth principles I learned from Serge King decades ago and they still apply.

I also want to share an observation that will seem paradoxical ….. cause and effect exist,  and accidents do happen.

I remember listening to Stephen and Ondrea Levine speak in Santa Fe many years ago. Many new age people were there and one person asked Stephen about cancer and the concept that we create our own reality and so we are creating our disease.  I was delighted to hear their answer. It resonated with me and was akin to what the channel had said about this issue. You are not to blame for your illness, you did not create it.  He said how un-compassionate this idea was.

Can you imagine sitting with a loved one, dying before your eyes and saying you did this, your thoughts did this. What a sad misconception. Forces of environment, genetics and karma are at play and your thoughts may be apart of this but there are larger forces at work than you may be aware of or even able to imagine.

This holds true for the idea of there are no accidents too. I remember reading a woman whose cat had jumped into a neighbors car, been driven across town and jumped out when the neighbor stopped the car.  This woman was devastated because so many well meaning friends consoled her with ” well everything happens for a reason” and ” there are no accidents.”  Sometimes accidents do happen. They are random and unexpected and yes there may be a lesson in it but it is still an accident. This cat never wanted to be separated from its home and family , he was just curious and wanted a warm stop to sleep.

So please be gentle with yourselves and each other. People often was to simplify that which is complex and to to make complex that which is simple.
