i believe that there is such a thing as collective frequencies, similar to how your chi escapes your body, and collects in your surroundings. look to the thought patterns of religious fanatics and groups. because they think of a god not as an intelligent, allpowerful entity, then they are easily controlled by such a god, which grows stronger with every thought, as an idea pattern come to life from overactive imaginations. and to point to zen and subjects such as chi gong, which is about balance, for me. but some say it is a religion based on achieving enlightenment. wich is a situational, perceived view of something. say it is but an anomaly, but that just means we dont know what it is. or are there real spirit beings out there that can transcend the physical existance and reside in ones mind? how should i treat such a creature, if it exists? well i tell you. they do exist in my mind. i dont want you to accept this concept as truth, simply because i said it nice. really look at the idea of chi waves and frequencies, collecting on our surrounding.
Nobody can be self-sufficient in the world. That much is impossible. But you can become who you are which is self-sufficiency in it's true sense. That is what I consider the evidence of a higher power, and that higher power is You.
Perhaps ' the essence of a higher power " is always YOU ......perhaps you are always with yourself in your journey of your choice by your will in your world ...........the higher power is you , and you are nothingness so the higher power is not an existence but is nothingness ...............all existence are leading into nothingness and nothingness is higher power not somethingness .
