“You are the source of spiritual power in your life.”
Greg Mooers, partner at Bridge2Bliss, has developed a technique that accelerates spiritual and psychological evolution and revolutionizes the science of counseling using quantum physics principles. He has used this technique to train entrepreneurs, psychologists, ministers, Olympic Gold Medalists, and Academy and Emmy Award winning celebrities. Greg spent more than 15,000 hours in silent meditation during his eight years as a monk. During that time, he also studied the most inspiring contributors throughout history and how they were able to motivate others, people like Mother Teresa, who was motivated by Compassion, Martin Luther King, who was motivated by Brotherhood, and Gandhi, who was motivated by Peaceful Liberation. What is it for you? Is it Loyalty, Honesty, or Freedom? Greg’s three-step program will reveal what is motivating you and show you how to use quantum physics principles to create a rewarding career and fulfilling relationships.
Q. What experiences put you on your spiritual path?
A. My path started when I was four years old and had a bad flu. My temperature was up around 105 degrees and I was hallucinating. The room was closing in on me and I felt terrified. My mother, who was involved in metaphysics, was a very nurturing woman. She put a cold towel on my head and left me to rest on my bed. Somehow the cold spread throughout my entire body and I ended up freezing and having nightmares. My mother came back in and I was sitting up on the bed with my legs crossed. She tried to lay me down and my legs went straight up in the air because I was so cold and rigid. She was talking to me and I could hear her, but I couldn’t respond. So she started whispering in my ear, “Greg, just say to yourself, ‘I dwell in Christ Consciousness.’” I had no idea what these words meant, but as I said them, I felt my body warm up and thaw out. The faces and images I had been seeing disappeared. After this experience, I never felt that level of fear again.
Years later, I ended up going to Sunday school and they were talking about Christ on the cross. I thought, Oh yeah, Christ, my buddy. I grew up in New Jersey in a tough neighborhood. Kids would bully me and I would use my affirmation, “I dwell in Christ Consciousness.” Every time I used it, I felt protected and at peace. I got confirmation that I have a very personal, very close relationship with Christ. But my spiritual path is nonexclusive. I don’t believe one way is better than another.
Q. What advice would you give someone just starting his or her spiritual path?
A. Kill the Buddha. Every scripture tells us that God—the kingdom of heaven—is within. We are God. If you own this power, then “greater things than this shall ye do.” I’ve always said, “If these aren’t God’s hands, then God doesn’t have hands.” I don’t see any invisible hands coming down from the clouds and cleaning things up. If people aren’t going to take responsibility for humanity, then there is no God. So if you come across anything that you make greater than yourself, kill it. That’s what “Kill the Buddha” means.
You are the source of spiritual power in your life. If you are giving power to something outside you, then that is the outside-in model. We are finally willing to own that this is an inside-out game. Look at Gandhi. He liberated his nation from one of the most powerful empires on the planet. He didn’t do it by using some reasonable method of force. He had no army. What he had was spiritual power—the virtue of peaceful liberation that he was relentlessly willing to stand by. It was as if invisible forces were assisting him.
