Merriam Webster defines Faith as ‘the strong belief or trust in something.’ My meditations and the spiritual books I’ve read made me realize that faith has the following four stages.
1. The Conception Stage
In the conception phase, faith exists as an idea. An individual conceives an idea, believes in it, but does nothing about it.
2. The Devotion Stage
In this stage, an individual invests in his idea. For example, if you want to be a famous musician, you enter the devotion phase when you start spending most of your time singing and recording music, and if you wish to be a businessman, you enter the devotion phase when you invest money in your business idea.
Investing in your ideas means you have faith in them. Many individuals have beautiful ideas, but they fail to execute them because they don’t invest in them. They fear wasting their resources hence showing that they don’t have faith in their ideas.
3. The Trials Stage
Here, you face obstacles you can’t imagine overcoming. This stage tests your faith in yourself, your idea, and the Creator. You need great amounts of faith to pass this stage.
In the trials stage, you need to remember that your willpower is stronger than any obstacle and that it’s always darkest before dawn.
4. The Generation Stage
Finally, in this stage, your faith pays off, and wonderful things begin occurring in your life because you get what you wanted.
Strive to know where you are in the phases of faith, and work on ascending to the higher stages. I love you all. May the Creator’s grace and love be with you.

Is God a Good Spirit?
N/B – I use the terms, ‘God,’ and I also use ‘his’ to refer to God, because they are the most common terms used in reference to The Creator/Infinite Intelligence/Source Energy.
All ancient cultures that believed in God’s existence intuitively believed God was a good spirit. For instance, the Yoruba in Africa, believed God was good and he wanted them to be happy and successful. Besides this, ancient Greeks knew Zeus was ever good.
It’s perplexing how cultures that lived thousands of miles away from each other concluded that God is good.
Besides ancient cultures, organized religions, which consider themselves more advanced, also believe God is good even though they disagree on various aspects of God. For instance, although Christians believe in I God in 3 Divine Persons (The Holy Trinity) while Muslims only believe in 1 God in 1 person, they both believe God is good.
But is God really good?
The fact that ‘primitive’ ancient cultures and organized religions believed God was good forced me to meditate on God to discover if this Spirit is really good. I then discovered that ancient cultures and organized religions believed God was good because they realized that The Creator provided for everything it created. I agree with their argument because my love for wildlife enlightened me that The Creator abundantly provides for every creature.
Besides this, God is good because he designed the universe to encourage goodness. For instance, he designed us to love good folks and dislike wicked individuals, and for this reason, politicians always have to act good for us to elect them. Also, it’s easier to be happy and to attain inner peace if one is virtuous.
Moreover, The Creator is good because he encourages goodness by designing good thoughts to have good effects on our immune system while he discourages wickedness by programming bad thoughts and emotions to have a negative effect on our immune system.
However, suffering has made the society to doubt God’s goodness. The society can’t understand how a good God can create a world where people suffer 24/7. The society is unaware that suffering is man-made because factors such as poverty existed after industrialization. Poverty never existed in ancient times because ancient folks valued kindness and helped each other. For instance, African communities shared food, water, and other natural resources hence preventing the possibility of poverty. However, high levels of greed in the modern world have resulted in some people taking more than enough hence causing poverty.
Besides poverty, many natural disasters that cause suffering occur as a result of human activities. For instance, deforestation encourages flooding while mining and dam building trigger earthquakes.
Therefore, suffering can’t be used to argue against God’s goodness because it’s man-made.
Moreover, if God was bad, he could have created us to suffer 24/7. He could have created a world with little water, food, and oxygen despite programming us to need these things. Furthermore, he could have squeezed all the world’s population in a few acres, and designed natural disasters to happen all the time.
But if you take a closer look at the world, you’ll realize that all these things (land, water, air, and food) are in abundance. Land only appears scarce because some people took more than enough while food appears scarce because modern society commercialized it.
God is a good God, and no one can argue against this. He’s always willing to provide for us because he exists in us. He gave us free will to do whatever we want, and he allowed us to enjoy everything in the physical world for a short period. Trust him, meditate on him 24/7, be virtuous, and surrender to the flow of life, and you’ll see his goodness

The Modern Society and the 3rd Dimension of Consciousness
‘Dimensions are not places or locations. They are levels of consciousness that vibrate at a certain rate.’ – Vidya Frazier, Awakening to the Fifth Dimension
Human beings are designed to reside in three major dimensions of consciousness: the 3rd, 4th, and 5th dimension.
In the 3rd dimension, the ego controls people’s thoughts and actions, while the 4th dimension is the gateway to the 5th and other higher dimensions where love rules. Life becomes better if you ascend to the 4th and 5th dimensions because the manifestation of desires is easier in these dimensions. Besides this, you easily find solutions to problems and you automatically lose interest in the past and the future if you ascend to these dimensions.
Most individuals in
The modern society is thus suffering because we dwell in the 3rd dimension of consciousness. We experience lack, anxiety, stress, fear, jealousy, hate and other negative states of mind because this dimension disconnects us from our Higher Selves. It also prevents us from perceiving higher worlds, and knowing fundamental truths that can make us live a joyous life.
For most of our problems to end, we have to leave the 3rd dimension and ascend to the 4th and 5th dimensions because these dimensions strengthen our connection with Infinite Intelligence/God hence enabling us to access higher knowledge essential for seeing things clearly. Furthermore, these dimensions enable us to live from our hearts and respect everybody because they make us feel a sense of oneness with everything. We also get what we want quickly in these dimensions because our bodies vibrate at a higher rate.
The modern society can leave the 3rd dimension of consciousness if people practice surrendering by believing that whatever is happening is leading them to a better version of themselves. Also, it can leave this dimension if people release negative emotions, love their neighbors unconditionally, and learn to forgive.
That being said, strive to leave the 3rd dimension and you’ll change your life and the society forever, because people will wonder how you can be joyous and peaceful in this world, and they will copy your way of life and eventually ascend to higher dimensions.
Thanks for Reading.
