The Way It Is: Make Your Own Golden Age

By Gregg Sanderson

Last month we talked about the many places where we pick up our B.S. (Belief Systems) and now we’ll figure out what we can do about changing them for the better.


The core belief of the Force we call BOB is: Thought propelled by feeling literally creates your world. Your B.S. shapes the feeling and filters the thought, so what you create perfectly reflects your consciousness. In other words, anything you believe works as you believe it will.

That paragraph can be elaborated into a year’s worth of columns—and so it will. Let’s get started.

BOB is our name for the multi-dimensional life force—the Being Of Bliss. Three dimensions of BOB that we’ll deal with are Intelligence, Feeling, and Stuff (substance). Surely there are others of which we probably can’t even conceive, but these will serve us in this particular Space/Time adventure.

The Intelligence of BOB directs the creation of everything out of Its “stuff,” powered by the only feeling It knows—Love. Now, follow this closely.


BOB is the substance and intelligence of the Universe, and everything in it (including us) is a part of BOB. But if the only emotion is Love, what’s with all the other crap we have to deal with?

Wrap your mind around this:

As the Space/Time adventure progressed, BOB added more and more of Its attributes to each successive creation: rocks, trees, bugs, fish, lizards, birds, dinosaurs, monkeys, puppies and people.

When It got to people, It added free will and volition, and the people developed a code of living that sounded good, but led them astray. Mythology calls it the “Tree of Knowledge of good and evil.”

Their code said they should never be or do wrong and everything about them had to be approved by everybody else. I call it the RACE Trap. “RACE” is an acronym that stands for “Righteousness and Approval Complicate Everything.”

Remember that because getting beyond it is the key to happiness.

The RACE Trap makes love conditional, and in the absence of love we got those other emotions which we describe above as “…all the other crap we have to deal with.” Think of it as emotional clouds that block, but don’t extinguish, the “sunshine” of love.

Eons of RACE programming have imbedded it into our collective consciousness, thus the myriad of complications, all of which entertain BOB.

Yes, ENTERTAIN. |ˌentərˈtān| verb [ trans. ] 1. provide (someone) with amusement or enjoyment.

Now you may say, “What’s so entertaining about eons of wars, killing, and atrocities galore?” People watch movies and TV shows about wars, killing, and atrocities, and call that entertainment, don’t they?

Why then should BOB not be entertained as It expresses through each of us, regardless of the individual dramas we create. With the perspective of BOB, our personal disasters are but an infinitesimal pixel on Its Infinite TV screen of experience.

Yet BOB, through you and me, still likes a happy ending, so it’s all set up for us. All we need to do is get through the RACE Trap of righteousness and approval and back to true love.

The good news is there’s a way to do exactly that which we can do ourselves. The bad news is you’ll have to wait until next month to find out more, since I’ve used up my space this time.

Happy 2013!
