Sunday message by Rev. Pat Bessey based on the book E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout
Oh my word we had a fabulous turnout for our community meeting in spite of it being a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Our intention for this meeting was to look at our mission statement and to see what we could do going forward to make it active within our community. Here are the questions that were asked of the group to discuss.
- What would you see Unity of Greater Portland doing in order to fulfill the vision and mission we have…
- With no limitations, what bold step would you see Unity of Greater Portland taking next…
- If you could have one wish granted for Unity of Greater Portland…What would it be and why?
- What would be happening in Unity of Greater Portland for you to say we were living into our mission…
The group was asked to hold these questions in prayer and we would have another meeting at a later date to take the process to the next level of discernment. I am asking you to do this as well and if you would like to answer the questions and send your responses to me we will incorporate them into the information we have already gathered from yesterday’s responses. You will be hearing more about this in the future.
The talk on Sunday was the second in the series based on the book E Squared...it was on the first experiment The Dude Abides Principle. The principle is “There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities.” Right out of the book this is what the author Pam Grout says about this experiment: “This experiment will prove to you once and for all that there is a loving, abundant, totally hip force in the universe. Some people call it God. You can call is prana, “the all there is” or “Cosmo Kramer”…it doesn’t matter use whatever name works for you.”
Here is what Wayne Dyer had to say on his Facebook page about the first experiment: I did the first experiment in E-Squared the last two days and guess what it worked. I am going to try all 9. I read the book last week and ordered a case to give to family and friends.
To do this experiment properly you must set aside any skepticism you might have. You don’t have to forever but for 48 hours…it will be for just two days. Be curious enough to expect the dude to show up in living color…expect it with your whole heart…expect it with every ounce of your soul…
So if you don’t hear from the Field of Infinite Possibilities within 48 hours feel free to write it off…well this didn’t work…so much for that!
Here is the experiment: Ask the Field of Infinite possibilities to make its presence known… ask for a blessing! Below you will find the Lab Report Sheet for you to document the results.
Lab Report Sheet
The Principle: The Dude Abides Principle
The Theory: There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities. And it’s yours for the asking.
The Question: Does the field of infinite possibilities (FP) exist?
The Hypothesis: If there’s a 24/7 energy force equally available to everyone, I can access it at any time simply by paying attention. Furthermore, if I ask the force for a blessing, giving it a specific time frame and clear instructions, it’ll send me a gift and say “My pleasure.”
Time Required: 48 hours
Deadline for Receiving Gift:
The Approach: I hate to break it to ya, FP, but folks are starting to talk. They’re starting to wonder, “Is this guy for real?” I mean, really, like it’d be so much skin off your chin to come down here and call off this crazy hide-and-seek thing you’ve been playing. I’m giving you exactly 48 hours to make your presence known, I want a thumbs-up, a clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence.
So I will close with my results of this experiment that I did this week…
On Thursday at 11 a.m. I started this experiment… at 3:47 Thursday afternoon I got an email from a former coaching client that hadn’t coached with me in over two years asking if she could start working with me again… I immediately remembered this experiment… there was a blessing.
Then it doesn’t stop there… Thursday evening I got a very clear message from my dad how proud he is of me… that he is always with me… another blessing.
There is more… I needed an opening story for this talk and in my inbox this morning was the story which fit perfectly with today’s experiment. This was all within the 48 hours.
I so want to hear your experiences with The Dude Abides Principle so if you feel inclined please send me your results.
Don’t miss next Sunday, when we will be looking at the Volkswagen Jetta Principle.
Have a spectacular Fourth of July!
You are a blessing in my life,
