It’s back to school time; Fall is coming and football season is upon us. Meanwhile, my oldest daughter is entering into her final semester of college, and I am feeling a bit nostalgic. And truth be told, a little older now as well. It is hard to believe that 30-years have almost past since my senior year in college.
I received an electrical engineering degree from Clemson University in 1987. Today it costs about $30,000 a year to attend Clemson, and it was worth all that and more to me. Clemson taught me so much about electricity and helped prepare me for so much in life by teaching me how to learn.
During my sophomore year, I took an introductory circuits class and we learned the most basic of all circuits – the flashlight. Flashlights are comprised of:
1) A power source – the batteries (V = volts)
2) Conductors – the metal material that conducts the electrical current from the power source to and from the filament (I = current)
3) The lamp or filament (the light bulb) (R = resistance)
4) A switch to start or stop the flow of electrical current
Today it would cost me over $30,000 to get to the point in college where I would learn about the flashlight. The following is a simplified circuit diagram of a flashlight:
In addition to forming the foundation for understanding more complex, circuits, the flashlight also provided me a framework in which to explain God and the spiritual energy that animates life and the universe.
In a flashlight, the power source is typically a battery. A battery provides the voltage – the electromagnetic force that causes the electrons to flow through the circuit. In life, we have a higher power that is the source and force behind all there is. This higher power is God. Like the metal conductors in the flashlight, we conduct energy as well. We are conductors of the flow of divine energy that emanate from God. Our light is more than a bulb, it is our soul’s expression of the divine expressing through us.

To join is free and you will receive access to my e-book – Why Less Is More – The Simple Science of How to Get More Energy Out of Your Life. A prime mover converts energy from one form into another and does work in the process. That is what we do! We take the energy of God and then convert this into our life’s work.
Namaste — from my light to yours!
