There is an unseen essential that is intrinsic, universal and guiding everyone who listens. There is an invisible hand at work in the making of beautiful lives. Uncommon success is found on the spiritual plane; you can't get there through common convention or following others. Hard work is not enough; many work slavishly-hard for little reward. Intelligence is insufficient; there are so many educated and brilliant people who have failed utterly and completely. Goodness is not enough; think of how many meek and good souls are tilled into the earth like manure by demigods to fertilize their crops of great fortune. There is something more — it is the unseen essential, and everyone has access to it. The unseen essential is understood as many things by many people. Scientists, philosophers, and theologians are ever reaching to understand, describe and commune with the unseen essential. Why do some people prosper and joyfully thrive, while others languish in abject misery? How do some escape poverty and poor environments? Why do some who come from amazingly supportive backgrounds still fail? It is the unseen essential that makes the difference.

There is a Sun shining in your soul
   in the solar system of your solar plexus
Nothing can eclipse
   your divine appointment of light

Spiritual. Transcendental. Serenity. Prayer. Mystical. Consciousness. Faith. These are words we have all heard, but what do they mean in "real" life? These words seem nonsensical to some people. Beyond our current understanding is a grand fullness which is the unseen essential. The unseen essential is everything yet described, which science feverishly works daily to uncover. If you don't believe in God, then the God concept is simply a great placeholder for everything unexplained and that we don't know, which is exponentially more than what we do know. The unseen essential can be felt in your bones, in your teeth and the hair on your neck. It whispers in the hollows of your chest and gut. The unseen essential is the enormity of mystery in every element of you; from your physiology to your psychology — it is all which is perplexingly, indescribably and awe-inspiringly — you. Beyond the narrow sliver of the electromagnetic spectrum that our crude instruments can detect and "sense," there is a vast circular continuum of greater unknowns awaiting our discovery. We know there is more so we are open to more, and this is a good attitude of openness for both science and spirituality. Like the mysteries of the deep ocean or space, there are mysteries in the depths of consciousness. Mysticism and her metaphors reach to understand the enigma of self and universe; like poetry — spirituality bridges the gap between the forms and the formless, for spirituality can pull cogent meaning from the veiled truths beyond our perception. Spirituality strives to touch those unknown forms the mind cannot yet grasp. Each person is a vast territory of undiscovered mystery as nebulous and uncharted as the deepest oceans and expanses of space. Life itself is a universe of mystery. Only an open mind and heart can receive knowledge of the great mysteries of life and self. You can hear the whispers if you are open to hear and if you listen closely.

Inner cosmos
   let me fall into your soul
Lost in your mystery
   vast noble being
You are my galaxy,
   let me touch each star

In the inconceivably vast and humbling unknown called "everything," is a supreme inter-communication called, spirituality. The laws of life are written into every atom, molecule, and heartbeat. The clues to the great mystery are all around us! To understand the mysteries of life, you must look around and within. You will see patterns everywhere; patterns that seem to manifest themselves over and over again. These patterns exist intertwined within nature and man, bridging the gap between the enigma of self and the entire universe itself. You see them in spiraling galaxies and Mandelbrot fractals, and the logarithmic swirls of fossilized Ammonoidea — growing from the unknown to atoms, to molecules to solar systems, to galaxies to the furthest expanses of the universe, with origins and destinations unknown; just like us in birth and death. You see them in the similarities between tree branches, rivers and blood veins, the patterns of fingerprints like endoplasmic reticulum, or a black opal's play of fire like the nebula of a supernova. Moon shots are like protoplasmic lurches, while simple thoughts and observations of the nature around us take us beyond the unknown. The clues to the great mystery are all around us and deep within us. We are all immersed in the sweet law of unfolding mystery called life. There is a way to flow and cooperate with universal laws that can be beautiful and kind. When we are in sync with this flow, its power moves us like a mighty yet gentle guiding hand. The flow of spiritual connectedness and oneness with life will dwell in you if your heart and mind is open and innocent. If you are pure in intention and in alignment with beauty and love, in body and mind, the highest levels of your spiritual self will subsume your weaknesses. Spirituality will take you like love; it seduces you from contemplation to completeness.

Into the abyss,
  of the deepest heart I dive
And hold my breath 'til death,
  to stay alive.

As you open your heart to wisdom you will begin to see the unseen essential. There is something divine, mystical, magical, and unexplainable in the universe that is listening and responding to each of us. Something is reflecting our thoughts back to us in obvious and not so obvious ways. Spirituality is like a thin-thin thread, which if delicately followed guides us from darkness to light; from poverty to abundance, and from destruction to safety. The unseen essential can be described in many ways and comes in many forms, but is always preceded by virtue. Godliness. Opulence. Cleanliness. Love. Integrity. Who you are; that is, who you choose to be — your identity, works in your life like an invisible hand. It works for who you really are, not for who you seem to be. This invisible hand guides, protects and gives passage to the beautiful hearts and humble servants of good. But, the invisible hand will not allow the impure to pass. If your life is a miserable disaster, you might want to consider that it's because you are doing something wrong. If you lack understanding then call upon your Higher Power and ask, "please, reveal to me my own deceptions." For the vile human pigs in life; the sloppy, disheveled, uncaring dregs, the ungrateful, and especially for the vicious, negative emotional peasants — there will only continue to be the hard and painful lessons you so desperately need. The invisible hand will hold you in your wretched place until your last breath — unless you evolve. If you are cruel and ignorant the invisible fist will pound you into oblivion until you submit, humble yourself and soften your hard heart.

Your life is always a perfect reflection of your state of heart and mind, and of your truest identity. There is a different world on the other side of your present attitude. You can only access the beautiful world through faith by truthfully embracing beauty and caring. Be open to others; give people a chance. Be open to yourself; give yourself a chance. When you are open and loving you become the solution to every problem we have in the world. The unseen essential awaits your enlightened heart's ascension to love.
