material expressions of what is. Pain and pleasure are psychological expressions of what is. Compassion and love
are spiritual expressions of what is.
When the material, psychological, and spiritual dimensions are brought into balance, life becomes whole, and this union brings feelings of comfort and security.
Only if you feel sure of your place in the universe can you begin
to face the fact that you are surrounded by creation and destruction as they constantly play themselves out. You cannot defeat entropy as a physical force, but you can rise to a level of realization that is not touched by entropy.
At the deepest level, intelligence is immune to decay. Your cells come and go, yet your body’s knowledge of how to make a cell survives and gets passed on generation after generation. The evolutionary intelligence that DNA embodies has many levels, and our task as humans is to experience every level and make each a part of ourselves.
In the midst of change, there are five realizations that entropy cannot touch. They are expressed in every spiritual tradition and form the core of personal evolution age after age: I am Spirit;
this moment is as it should be; uncertainty is part of the overall order of things; change is infused with non-change; entropy holds no threat because it is under the control of infinite organizing power.
These realizations are crucial because they allow a person to rise above the world of duality, which is inevitably caught up in the battle of creation and destruction.
