The Compass of Unconditional Love

The Compass of Unconditional Love

 

In the land of the unreal, the real is a dream.

In the land of the real, the unreal is a dream. 

Wake me from my dream that I may live my dream

To be Unconditional Love.

 

 

The Choice

The Choice exists for our soul, because love is a choice. The Choice is between life or death; to live upon the rock or the shifting sands, to possess the divine consciousness or the self-directed consciousness, and to give and receive unconditional divine love or conditioned human love. These are all the same choice.

Divine love consists of many beautiful characteristics that give it its expression. Some I listed in my post Light Catchers: It’s always 1. longsuffering 2. kind and gentle 3. humble and confident 4. courageous and without fear 5. honoring of all 6. constant, consuming, and all-encompassing 7. healing and forgiving 8. giving and nurturing 9. merciful 10. trustworthy, honest, and faithful 11. abundant 12. of divine judgment. It loves perfectly at all times to all entities of creation. It excludes no one or nothing. This love moves through us from its Source. It isn’t self-generated. It is the Light; the power of our Source and Center, our Creator.

Therefore, to grow in the awareness of the characteristics of divine love is to begin to know our Creator. Otherwise, we hold a false image and reside in a darkened mind. Thus, to choose this love is to choose to connect to Him; for he is found in this love. Thus, this love with each of its attributes is our compass down the path of enlightenment and into oneness with the Light.

Unconditional Love

Lately, one particular characteristic of this love has been highlighted in my journey; its unconditional nature. It’s given and received without condition; a trait unknown in the shifting sands of conditioned human love. It’s unwavering, constant, consistent, and unfailing. It’s always present in harmony, purity, and perfection. It’s a rock. Thus, its unconditional nature serves as an important part of our life compass.

Though, unconditional love is given and received without condition, because it’s love the recipient must receive it and the giver must choose to give it. In this choice to give and receive is where all the conditions reside in conditional love. We judge ourselves worthy or not to receive it, and we judge others worthy or not to give it to; both for a myriad of reasons. When we possess faith in unconditional love we skip this judgment and reside as an open fount while maintaining honor, integrity, and purity of intent.

This pivot point of choice is where our voyaging becomes much more difficult. Once we choose unconditional love, a multitude of conditions from our soul surface to teach us what this choice means. Along this leg of our journey, our choice is refined into one of integrity and sincerity.

Choosing unconditional love elucidates the areas of our soul’s difficulties extending back to our childhood. Our pains, betrayals, hurts, wounds, fear, and all their protective gear; our judgments, self-righteousness, pride, ego, isolation, anger, selfishness, are unearthed and exposed. Our protective gear forms a multi-layered barrier around our soul center; the outlet of love. This heart-wall stands like Jericho and prohibits us from a sincere choice to give unconditional love because we chose our protective gear instead.

Yet, as we continue to grow in awareness, we gain new perspectives that reframe these painful areas. For example, we no longer see past decisions that led to pain or harm to others and ourselves in disdain, but we realize it was part of our shadow self presenting opportunities to grow by. In the lucidity of truth that comes to us in layer upon layer, we find a release for our walled-in difficulties, and assimilate the wisdom they provided to our eternal spirit mind. As these hurts are loosed, the protective gear falls away, and our soul opens to receive and give love in faith. Our self-imposed conditions are consumed by the awareness that this divine love is needed to heal and restore our soul and all those we’ve impacted along the way, thus we come to desire it above all else.

Inner to Outer Love

Through this exposition of our souls, we come to realize we give what we have; whether in faith or substance. A divine love isn’t self-consumed or self-generated. It flows from the Source through us to others. It is received into our soul, and then it is given from our soul. Thus, if we don’t desire or understand the need for an internal love, honor, and respect for our own soul then we can’t progress in giving it to others, for it flows through us and to others. The internal love we possess is the love we express.

Thus, the degree of love we have toward ourselves is the degree of love we have toward others. If we claim to have a love for others and not ourselves, we have not love, but attachment. If we claim to have a love for ourselves and not for others, we have not love, but disillusioned ego.

This inner love is one of the hardest lessons we face. Our shadow self challenges us with personal weaknesses to teach us how to receive a love without condition for ourselves. This is part of its purpose. But we get hung up on the conditions instead of realizing they are present to teach us about unconditional love.

To love without condition is understood when there are conditions to overcome. The more conditions, the more expansive our understanding of this love becomes. Thus, in the midst of imperfections, weaknesses, and afflictions, and all sorts of conditions, we are able to learn of this divine love’s magnificence, depth and vastness. How it covers, heals, and restores. We are given ample opportunities to learn of this divine love, thus the nature of our Creator that we may sincerely choose oneness with him, as a part of his divine consciousness.

Faith Then Substance

Again, the ability to give unconditional divine love in substance is gained through a oneness with the divine consciousness, when we no longer reside in the reflection of our shadow self, but as our true divine self. Because faith precedes substance, the Spirit of Truth crafts a living faith in divine love, which the substance fills our soul at our awakening. Experiencing our shadow self creates the faith that leads to the manifestation of our true divine self.

Importance of Faith

The growing awareness of this love driven by our CHOICE create neuro-pathways of the ways of God within our eternal spirit mind of our true self. This is the formation of our faith. These prepare us for the inflow of the energy of the divine consciousness. If our understandings and desires are in contradiction to this consciousness, there is no synergistic fit, for love is a choice. It’s like two magnets repelling one another instead of pulling toward each other. A sincere longing for this divine love with all its attributes creates an inlet and outlet for the divine consciousness to flow through our soul to others.

As the awareness of unconditional love grows in our own soul, then we are able to extend it to others in faith, which again precedes the substance. If we are unwilling to give this unconditional love, then the door to our soul remains closed. However, even in this state, if we continue to seek truth and divine love; our unwillingness will change to willingness as we learn divine love with all its characteristics is the answer and fulfillment to all we seek. Unconditional divine love is eternal life, immortality, power, harmony, freedom, peace, joy and rest for our souls and streams of living water for others through us.

Unearthing Our Shadow Side

Old woman young girl

Unearthing Our Shadow Side

 

A mind connected to the light; perceives the light. Until we connect, all we see are illusions in the dark.

The view into our soul from the inner chamber isn’t all pleasantries. But as we align to the perspective of truth, all we see, including our shadow side (false fabricated self) is encapsulated in divine love.

From the inner chamber, we begin to see ourselves raw and real. As our awareness increases so does our vision of our current soul state. As an observer of our own soul, we witness the depths of our struggles, afflictions, depravities, brokenness, frailties and illusions of our soul. These can throw us into states of sadness, frustrations, and even hopelessness. However, as we continue to seek to expand in the awareness of truth and divine love, we begin to realize that they are serving a purpose; to prepare us to receive and give divine love.

As we move toward the light, we begin to face these aspects of ourselves that we’ve spent years running and hiding from. All that we’ve held in our soul is exposed. In the darkness of unawareness, these traits remain hidden or sketchily seen, though their pain can be intensely experienced. Thus, we go through life creating disharmonious ripple effects and clueless as to why. Thus, to see is a blessing, though it may not feel like it initially … or even for awhile.

What do we do when these adverse and painful reflections are exposed? The multifaceted qualities of co-dependency, damaging control, fear, criticalness, self-pity, victimization, self-doubt, ego, pride, greed, lust, selfishness, guilt, shame, degraded self-value, and so on?

We can either view our shadow side with despondency and hopelessness or as a means to grow in the awareness of divine love. The latter builds the constructs of truth that prepares us for the inflow of the divine consciousness.

We see these attributes for what they are because we are seeing their contrast; what our soul expression would be in divine love. We see what we see for our instruction; for our soul’s sake, others and as a part of our Creator’s workmanship in us. As we seek what we are to learn from these challenging traits, we grow in the awareness of truth and divine love. In time, we learn that everything in our lives is serving our highest good as we surrender from our rebellion.

Acknowledgment, Letting Go, and Building Truth

When we see the attributes of our shadow side from a perspective of growth, we acknowledge, let go, and enable truth to expand into our awareness.

  1. Acknowledgement. To receive new constructs of divine love, we first acknowledge and confess the ones not of divine love. This requires honesty and transparency with our inner and outer reflections. Blame, complaining, denial, and suppression, all block the learning that is purposed in these imperfections. We each have what we have to learn what we need to about divine love.
  1. Letting Go. Once we acknowledge the attribute, we desire to let it go. To utterly and completely forsake it. Much of our expanding awareness is a process of letting go. This level of letting go is an onion peeling process. We have a trait because it helped us in some way. Our anger, control, pride, withdrawal, or denial served to protect us in our youth when we didn’t know what else to do with what was handed to us. We are challenged as we mature to let go of our childish ways and embrace the ways of divine love. This doesn’t mean instant change by any means. It means a desire to sincerely let go of this trait that blocks divine love; because this desire to let go opens the pathways for truth to start building in its place. So the questions arise: Do we truly desire to let go of this attribute? Or does it feel empowering at times? Does it help us “survive”? Does fear keep us holding onto it? Over time as our awareness expands to the nature of divine love, we gain a sincere desire to want to let go of all that hinders this love.
  1. Building Truth: When we acknowledge and desire to let go, we are enabling the Spirit of Truth to mercifully build truth within our soul; the truth about the nature of divine love. Over time, bit by bit, as we embrace the truth instead of the lie, the footholds of these counter mindsets start to loosen. The more thoughts and beliefs we have supporting the lies, the more blinding the lies. The more thoughts and beliefs we have around the truth, the more lucid the truth. So we seek to cultivate truth and not the lie.

He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Proverbs 28:13

Deliverance

What follows from this process is very individual and purposeful.

After we’ve gone through this process, these challenging attributes often continue to linger.  To alter these deeply seeded habitual perspectives and responses is the work of the Spirit of Truth within us. We are our Creator’s workmanship. Often these traits linger, because they assist in the building of the truth. They keep us seeking, asking, praying, and going deeper, instead of lounging in the complacency of ignorance. Therefore, above all we are called to trust in his workmanship in us and not our own or what we think should be happening.

A particular “weakness” facilitates a deeper trust in our Source and Center. It empowers us to put our pride aside and possess a sincere humility. It teaches us the faithfulness of divine love in the midst of unfaithfulness. Weaknesses serve our growing awareness. There are many purposes to our lingering imperfections.

Over time as we expand our awareness, the weakness may be no longer needed, thus it’s removed. Regardless of the outcome, our purpose is to expand our awareness. Thus whatever we face is there for our instruction. When we focus on this purpose, we are focused on the light and we grow. If we succumb to self-pity or blame, we are focused on the dark and that stifles our heightening awareness. Our imperfections serve to teach us.

We are learning what a soul governed by a self-directed will, versus a divine all-knowing will manifests. When we face our dark shadows, we begin to see the illusions we constructed. With a self-directed consciousness we make constant erroneous judgments. These create a reality of illusions, which we translate into our truth, our reality, our life. Our harsh judgments about our imperfections make it a thousand times harder. When we look from the perspective that all is for our growth and we aren’t meant to be perfect, then our judgments lessen. Our judgments feed our fear and our fear our judgments. As the fear dissipates in the awareness of a divine love, our imperfections, struggles, hardships, and afflictions begin to serve us according to their intended purpose.

The Spirit of Truth is always present to teach us through everything we face. As we open our ears as a willing student to learn from whatever we may encounter in or outside of ourselves, for one is the reflection of the other, we become prepared for a oneness with our Creator, which is our deliverance and eternal rest. Only our Creator knows when our schooling is complete. As long as we are in our school uniforms, the self-directed consciousness, we are to learn, and our imperfections are part of the curriculum.

As we’re drawn toward the light, our illusions fade and we see all is working for our highest good.

Our Sacred Inner Chamber

spiritual-awakening-earthOur Sacred Inner Chamber

 

In a stillness of mind and quietness of spirit, we enter the inner chamber of our soul.

This inner place is one of our greatest discoveries of our mortal lives because it’s where we encounter the light of our Source and Center that guides us into himself.

The Sacred Inner Chamber

The inner chamber of our soul is the place that sits on the edge of our personal reality and the realm of unlimited divine potentials, the realm of our Creator. It’s the center and beginning of our soul. It’s the place before creation; creation of any thought, emotion, desire, feeling, word, movement or action. Thus, it’s a sacred space of innocence and purity.

If we imagine our soul as a temple, this place is the innermost part, the most holy and sacred portion of our being. Because it’s a place before anything we create, it’s untainted by error. In this purity, we are able to encounter the sacred light of our Creator.

Our temporary self-directed consciousness prohibits an open door connection to this sacred light. Yet, though we can’t connect in substance, we can connect through our spirit. It’s like speaking through a door, versus face to face. The substance of the light is the power of divine love and the governance of the divine consciousness. Thus in this self-directed state, we experience the love through the medium of faith versus substance, and the divine consciousness in concept versus actuality. But this self-directed experience is essential in preparing us for receiving the substance. Life comes through a darkened womb under a veil of flesh before entering the light and coming face to face.

It’s through this inner space the Spirit of Truth speaks to us from the divine realm beyond us. His voice echoes throughout our being calling attention to himself to draw us into his truth that he may lead and guide us. It’s here in our inner chamber where his spirit fashions us to be the temple of his divine consciousness. It’s where we are closest to absolute truth and divine love.

Mindful Meditations

As a spiritual practice, we can engage in mindful meditations that serve to connect us to this inner chamber. In stilling our mind and quieting our spirit, we put aside all the distractions and attune our inner perceptions to this inner sanctuary. With pure intentions of heart and mind, and a willingness to listen and grow in the awareness of truth and love, we find entrance into this sacred place.

In this space we sit as an observer; a place beyond and before our thoughts, emotions, and all we manifest. We offer up what is on our minds, what is consuming our thoughts, what we are obsessing about, or what is happening in our reality. We step back and take the place of an observer and open ourselves up to to learn what we are intended to about divine love from these happenings. From this vantage point, we witness the rest of our soul thus life from a higher perspective that enables us to gain insight into our personal stories. Because of this lucid perspective, wisdom finds an entrance into our awareness so that it can instruct and enlighten our path. We attune our inner ear and sit as a student to the Spirit of Truth, and he instructs us about the experiences of our lives in order to illuminate us in the ways of divine truth and love.

Growing Awareness

When we begin our mindful meditations, it takes practice in quieting our minds from the noisy hubbub of life; the more drama and complexity the more noise. Thus, why those on the path of enlightenment choose a life of simplicity. It helps them to reside in this place of enlightenment. It takes time to discern the noise from the Voice of Truth. It’s like learning a new language, a language of the Spirit. So we are required to be patient and dedicated.

Once we find an inner stillness, we can begin to attune to the truth seeping into our awareness. The truth comes like a little light in our darkness. It reveals the nature of harmony, life, love, and truth for our soul, the collective human soul, and all of creation. As we continue our daily meditations, our discernment between the truth and the noise grows increasingly more distinct. In my personal practice, writing is a great facilitator to my inner ear. Sometimes the reflections come through my mind to the paper. Sometimes it’s as if the words flow right from the Spirit of Truth through my pen and I learn and listen as I write. Sometimes, I just listen and record later.

As we diligently cultivate entering into this inner chamber, our ability to hear the truth enhances. The trickles of truth slowly build a new foundation in our soul that enables us to receive more truth. Truth builds. Thus, we grow in awareness as we receive the truth in faith bit by bit.

The droplets entering into our awareness continue to expand until they become a thriving stream. At this point, we find ourselves stopping in this inner sanctuary throughout the day. This frequent engagement is an indication that our lives are transitioning from pivoting around something outside of us, (job, family, spouse, children, pain, parents, self-worth, etc.) to our true center, the place of engagement with our Source and Center. When this becomes our center, the divine light has found a continuous pathway through the spirit into our present awareness. Our thoughts begin to shift according to our new center and we fully engage the journey of enlightenment. Finally, when we transition from growing in awareness from this light to becoming the light, we’ve obtained oneness.

Awareness is a continual expansion of truth and divine love that builds new constructs of belief and thought. These new beliefs and thoughts provide the framework for the inflow of the divine consciousness. It’s the building of our inner temple to receive the spirit of divinity. The occurrence of this inflow happens at the discretion of our Creator, because his consciousness will transform the entire human soul as one, for we are all connected. Until this day of our awakening, we grow in awareness to obtain a divine desire for this light, to make the choice to receive this divine consciousness in love and totality, and to develop a framework of constructs of truth within our soul that his divine consciousness can manifest through.

Therefore, the purpose of of this part of the journey isn’t to self-perfect, because a self-directed consciousness isn’t constructed to, but to grow in awareness of absolute truth and divine love that allows us to connect to the divine consciousness that perfects us. However, the awareness itself does bring about various changes in us.

Oneness

In the day of awakening, when we transform into a divine soul, our inner chamber is filled with the substance of the light; the governing divine consciousness of divine love. Instead of growing in awareness of the light, we become the light. Our gained understanding of the nature of divine love and our desire to give it to all without reservation is the carrier of this light through our soul and into our reality, which the light regenerates in immortal harmony. When we are one with this light, every aspect of our soul is consumed by it, and all our energetic vibrations resonate according to divine love. Thus, the light governs every aspect of our experiential reality from our soul out to the ends of creation and we are one with the Source and Center, our Creator.

Seeing Our Liquid Reflections

 

Liquid Reflections by Emily Mort

 

This profoundly intriguing and creative photograph, Liquid Reflections, by Emily Mort reflects a more accurate depiction of our reality.

Do you see your soul’s reflection? It’s all around you; in your body, relationships, circumstances, choices, words, and reactions. All of these are shaped by the little ripple effects you create with each energetic pulse of your soul.

In the post, Reflective Reality, I touched upon this dynamic of our experiential reality. For me this is quite a paradigm shift from what I grew up with, but as this perspective settles in, it opens up a world of understanding and insight into my personal life and “my world”, which interplays with the world at large. This reorientation of how we view our reality is one gained along the yellow brick road into InLIGHTInMenT.

This paradigm reveals our self-creating nature that is inherent to us simply being. We are constantly creating from within our soul out. Our constant energetic motion is creating the motion picture of our lives. We don’t effort. We just create. The effort comes in trying to create what we want instead of what we don’t want, which is where our training ground resides.

Energetic Vibrations

Our reality consists of energy. It’s fluid, in constant motion, and reactive to our soul’s output as a pool of water reacts to energetic vibrations. The water studies by Dr. Emoto show this dynamic in the most astonishing ways. These studies began my process of reframing how I saw my reality and the impact I had upon it. Hard surfaces cast illusions of solidity that blind us to our full effect on our perceived reality. We, from the inside out, are constantly altering its reflection. We are continuously modifying our reality with every vibration we send out from our soul with our beliefs, reoccurring thoughts, emotions, words and actions. In this, our reality reflects back to us our truth; what we hold as truth, not the Truth. However, as we begin to embrace this new paradigm of thought, we begin to align more to the Truth, which is the journey to becoming “enlightened”.

Thus, our seemingly static reality of hard surfaces is actually like a pool of water and our soul is the fount. The drops of water of our spirit fall from our soul into the space around us and create ripple effects; in our body, relationships, circumstances, present surroundings and in the collective human soul. What is happening on the outside is determined by what is happening on the inside. At the same time, the drops from others’ souls are creating ripple effects that impact our soul for they conjecture up a response from us. In this interplay, our consciousness in a constant state of change. Therefore, at any one time, our reality is reflecting and impacting our current soul state. But we must be slow to judge and steady to observe and learn; for often our reality isn’t reflecting what we first assume. A listening ear to the counsel of the Spirit of Truth enlightens us to the language of our reality.

Imaginations vs. Truth

When we begin to see our reality in this way, we see that most of our memories consist of our imaginations about our reality, versus the truth. This can be a liberating realization for it can help us to let go of situations we need to let go of that have enslaved us because we held them as a truth instead of an imagination. The brick laying process of the road of enlightenment is the diligent progression of our soul aligning to the Source and Center, thus the Truth, and away from our illusions we call truth.

We grow in wisdom and understanding as we learn from the ripple effects we create. We need not fear them, but learn from them. We learn to listen to what our reality is telling us and teaching us, which starts to become utterly fascinating as we develop this listening ear of mindful awareness. We learn not to be afraid to hear what it has to say knowing this experience isn’t about our perfection but learning in imperfection what we can’t in perfection. From this growing awareness, we obtain a faith in the divine love of our Creator and are able to stop blaming and being the victim; both of which inhibit our learning. Instead, we become students of our reality whose purpose is to teach us the ways of love through its imperfections. We learn through trial and error that only expressions of an unconditional love for all create truly desirous ripple effects, and this leads us to our ultimate choice.

The Ultimate Choice

With a self-creating nature, we choose what we will create. Thus, this reality presents us a choice; to choose to create a self-determined reality or a divine reality; to choose to create dark or light. It seems like an obvious answer but how many times do we do or want to do what we know we shouldn’t? How often do we find ourselves fearful of what God will do with our lives if we “trust” him? How hard is it to let go of control?

Initially, it may seem freeing to maintain control in a self-determined reality; to choose what we want, but it is our ultimate bondage because along with that choice comes the self-determined consciousness, where we judge good or bad, and that can only create darkness, or what is contrary to the ultimate good; for we don’t know as we ought to know. To choose to be totally governed by the divine consciousness that is always beyond us is our true freedom for in it we can only create according to the highest good as every expression is rooted in divine love and immortal harmony. It’s freedom from suffering, pain, fear, damaging control, and every other undesirable quality; and isn’t this the true freedom we desire? When we come to understand this choice, thus both sides of the decision, the choice becomes clear.

We are here to learn so that we can make a sincere informed choice in love for divine love as a self-creating creation. To make this choice wholeheartedly, in understanding, with no hesitation, wavering or turning back requires a certain level of awareness; one that our reality is constantly trying to enlighten us with. In all our learning, we are enabled to make the ultimate choice: to give up all choice that is counter to divine love, thus become totally governed by the divine consciousness. Thus, our hope isn’t in our ability to self-perfect, but in the unfailing nature of the divine love of our Creator to manifest our choice for oneness that brings to life our eternal expressions of divine potentials that take us into perfection beyond perfection.

Thank you Emily for sharing your gift with us.

The Path of Enlightenment

The Path of Enlightenment

 

When we connect to the Source and Center of all and embrace the divine truth and love it offers us, then we begin our journey to becoming enlightened. A path of enlightenment is one into a divine soul state.

It’s often assumed that a truly enlightened soul state is reserved for a chosen few. But it is only this belief that keeps it so. True enlightenment is available to every soul; for it is the eternal soul state for every soul. Truth is owned by no one, and is available to every one.

Enlightenment is an awareness of the truth, light, in such a way that it continuously alters our state of consciousness, thus our creative potentials. Light is awareness of what is true and real. Darkness is blindness by what is false and unreal. Enlightenment comes from being connected through the spirit to the Source and Center, our Creator. It is a soul state of heightened and expanding awareness of truth and divine love. It’s having the eternal light of life turned on in our inner soul’s perception, instead of stumbling around in the darkness of illusions.

Becoming Enlightened

As I begin to see the light among the shadows in my own journey, the understanding of an enlightened soul state grows more lucid. It’s a condition in which souls possess a certain amount of truths that define their being, others, the creation around them, and their Source. It’s a heightened and expanding state of awareness, as the soul is being set free from the illusions. It’s a path of seeking, following and embracing the truths in faith that are presented from the Source of Creation.

As certain truths become personal beliefs, which is the struggle of our soul journey, then inner peace, centeredness, calmness, and insightfulness are manifested; truths surrounding such concepts as present-mindedness, energetic vibrations, and soul responsibility, and the complementary dynamics of love and ego, real and unreal, truth and illusion, oneness and separation, life and death, perfect cause and self will, spiritual and material, light and dark, individuality and conformity, judgment and compassion, humility and confidence, responsiveness and creativeness, true self and false self, and so on.

We all possess the potential to journey the path of an enlightened soul. It’s found through a doorway in our soul that connects us to the divine consciousness of the Source, Creator and divine Father. It grows by a sincere desire that creates responsive actions in us that lead ever closer to the Source and Center. The closer we are to the Source the more enlightened we become as we move away from a mindset dwelling in outer darkness; which has very little awareness of truth, to a mindset governed by the principles of truth; light.

Those who learn how to access this realm of truth are on the path of enlightenment; which consists of endless gradients of growth and expression, as it is a path that never ends. How people access this inner place varies and it’s related to their individuality, personality and background. Though there are similarities such as; stillness of mind, quieted spirit, being receptive to listening, learning, and embracing the truth perceived, and a sincere desire to become that truth. Those who develop this connection reveal similar core truths; truths like the ones I mentioned above.

Our individuality is expressed in the facilitators that help us to enter this soulful place of connection to our Source; such as the varieties of meditation, melodic movement, music, nature, writing, journaling, supplemental reading, and guided practices. We borrow and share ideas from one another discovering what assists our own personal connection. The goal among all these variables is the same; to connect to the Voice of Truth that is beyond us and yet heard from within us. All these modalities of connection serve to extinguish all exterior voices that tell us, who we are, who we should be, or what we should do. They provide an ability to focus on the one Voice of Truth that flows from our loving Creator, a Voice we’ve all heard whether we realize it or not.

Enlightened souls spend amble time cultivating this connection to the light, thus how they become enlightened. They follow its leading and embrace the truth offered as they push through their own illusions and lies. In a humility, transparency of soul, and willingness to learn, they allow the truth to continuously evolve their beliefs setting them free from static constructs that prohibit soul growth. They allow this Voice of Truth to continuously bring them into a clearer and heightened perspective in all things. Their continuous movement away from judgment, control, fear, criticism, complaining, unforgiveness, ego, pride, arrogance, vengeance, greed, jealously, self-pity, and apathy, creates an expanding soul state of love, of which the entire human soul benefits from. They serve us all in the most profound way.

I extend my gratitude to these souls and the truths they share; which I only understood as I connected to the Source myself. Their souls create beautiful and powerful ripple effects into the overall awareness of the collective human soul. We honor them and ourselves not by holding them in isolation as an elite group, but by coming along side of them and embarking upon our own journey of enlightenment. Not to copy their path, but to discover our own through our unique individuality. The greatest gift we can give to our Creator, ourselves, those we love, and all of creation is to journey this path of the peacemakers into divine truth and love.

Living Light

Living Light

 

The past 14 years, to the day, I’ve been Stirring the Deep; seeking the true eternal light. During the last seven years, I’ve shared some of the teachings and instructions from the Spirit of Truth, as I received them.

This last series; Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality (categorized under Mysteries Revealed), shares the quintessential understandings of my soul journey from the darkness into the eternal light. The journey from the false fabricated self to the true divine self, from the simulated to the real; from the dark womb to the light of day, from the self-directed consciousness to the divine consciousness; from false images of our Creator to a personal perspective through an intimate engagement.

Where my soul journey will go now, only God knows. I feel I’m stepping into a new frontier of the soul. Through a continual increasing awareness, the perception of my reality is altering ever so slightly. I sit as an observer of my soul watching and listening, while I follow a leading beyond me yet within me. In this changing season, my blog is gaining a new reflection, symbolic of what I’m experiencing; an increasing light among the shadows.

Along with this new frontier, I’ve noticed a change in my perception of time in relation to my soul’s development. It is becoming real-time so that the journey is more present oriented. It’s feels like a transition from a past and future mindset to a present mindset.

The past resides as an instructional memory and the future as something impossible to comprehend as a force much higher than my being is constructing it. Every thought seems to create the next reflection, as the time lapse of the unreal is dissipating.

In this state of mind, the soul manifests its growth in real-time instead of learning by reflecting on past events, and hoping it can act according to what it has learned in the future, which it wasn’t able to fully do. The past and future mindset encases the soul like a shell and keeps it from residing in the present moment; the real. As, this shell cracks, also representing the false self, the present becomes the soul’s dwelling place. It is no longer like a seed bound in a shell with hopes of growth, but diligently matures like a plant slowly and steadily rising out of the earth.

Journal Reflections of Living in the Light

The shadows of the mind fade as a dim light breaks forth. The heart lightens at the awakening rays. The soul swells with the realization that divine love has always enfolded it; but it was unknown by a mind cast in the shadows of death; shadows that clouded its perspective to believe otherwise. In this reception of love, it senses it can begin to truly love, without condition.

The soul expands with the substance of its desires, hopes, and prayers as its oneness with the Creator is actualized and realized; which becomes one in the same act. Each cell tingles as it responds to the gentle inflow of the loving light. They take on new formations; beautiful crystalline shapes revealing the magnificence of their Creator. Joy dances across the lips. Eyes twinkle with eternal light. Divine love tenderly enraptures the heart. All as the Creator establishes a oneness with this soul prepared as His dwelling place.

The soul begins to stand tall in the outpouring of the Creator’s mercies and grace that lift it out of its sleep state and into a higher echelon of being. Immortal harmony takes up its governance. The eternal light of the highest good takes over the once darkened perceptions, thoughts, emotions, words, expressions and actions. The soul transcends the mortal mind and steps upon the threshold of immortality. As the soul mind meticulously infuses with light, the soul is set free. Every soul element flows in unison with divinity and creates a melodic harmony of inner peace that resonates throughout the soul. The soul is one, united to the One, in oneness. Out of the pit of darkness it arises as the chords of death break away, and new roots of eternal life take their place.

The soul chose to love. Love responded.

Thy Light Has Come

Thy Light Has Come

The Journey of a Soul of the Internal Light

(Part 12: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)

 

The chord is cut. Thy light has come.

No longer is the soul bound to the shadows of darkness, but has entered the light of day.

 

Possessing the divine consciousness as well as being a part of the collective human soul, Jesus Christ, brought the potential for us to be connected to the divine consciousness. And, as he taught, we must be “born again” to become a part of this consciousness (the Kingdom of God).

For our soul to be divine, we embark upon a soul journey to prepare our soul for a oneness with the divine consciousness. There are many analogies that speak to this transition that all reveal different aspects of our journey. The analogies, whether of a marriage, a metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly, or a seed maturing into a tree, build our awareness of the journey our soul goes through, thus guiding us on the paths we are called to traverse. One illustration full of symbolism is the birth of a child, thus Jesus’ reference to it. It’s a deep and rich analogy intended to guide us on the path to immortality.

Spiritual Womb

Our reality and our Creator’s reality are co-existing in a simulated state of separation. As we experience a self-determined existence, His spirit of love hovers over us as a loving Father. Thus, the erratic self-will resides within perfect cause. Everything is working for our highest good, for our Father loves us all.

The preparatory process we go through to become a divine soul is much like an embryo growing in a womb. Our divine soul grows in a spiritual womb that resides in a hidden and holy place untouched by the self-directed consciousness. This place lays dormant within us until we are connected to (fertilized by) our Father’s divine love through a sincere longing for this love. This desire compels us to connect through our spirit to his spirit. It’s through the spirit because his dimension lies just beyond this one so it’s only through the spirit that we can connect to him.

Like an umbilical chord, through this spirit connection to the divine consciousness, we gain the nourishment required for our divine self to start to form. In this connection, the mishaps of our self-directed consciousness start serving our highest good through the lessons and experiences it presents us. Through our increasing awareness, absolute truth and divine love become known in this sacred place in our soul, and a likeness of a divine soul begins to grow within. It’s within this holy place that the divine consciousness will flow into and regenerate our reality.

As these understandings of divine truth and love flow from the spirit realm, they structure the narrow way that becomes the long and winding road to freedom.

Along this narrow path of purifying truth, a soul element, which is beyond our soul yet can be a part of our soul becomes knit into our soul; the soul element of divine desire. Desire is the one aspect of our being that can be purified while we are still separate in a self-made soul, because desire exists beyond us, as well as being a part of us.

The narrow path is an arduous and euphoric journey of the Spirit of Truth teaching, instructing, prompting, impressing, convicting, encouraging, and training our soul in the ways of truth and divine love as the soul element of divine desire takes form. This element enables us to connect to the divine consciousness; thus no more separation, no more “death”. As I’ve mentioned, desire is what our soul wants to create; reactively or intentionally. Divine desire is a desire for only what is divine, thus of God’s desires for us as his creation. All contrary desires fade away as this element of soul is created. (This phase is symbolized in the number 40; days, weeks, years, time of trial and preparation)

When we gain the fullness of the soul element of divine desire, we come to “full term”. We are ready to leave the watery darkness and enter into the reality of light because through the creative element of divine desire we receive the divine consciousness that transforms and governs the remaining soul elements.

As we come full term, we begin our journey through the birth canal, which is symbolic of pushing through this reality’s atmosphere of separation. It’s tumultuous, trying, tiring and painful, as our previous reality governed by our self-driven consciousness is seen without blinders and is stripped away; which feels like a slow death. We are pressed and squeezed, constricted and suffocating, as the elements of our soul entrapped by the self-made will begin to break away as we move into our divine self. As we pass through the atmosphere we witness the layers of depravity that we created, our soul swells and breaks, as we continue to let go of all that we have been, until only a shell of the false self remains. It’s an unsettled and uprooted place of being caught between two realities, where we aren’t a part of this reality or the next. (Symbolic of the number 5; 5 layers of atmosphere)

As we pass over the infinite chasm between the shadow and the real, our frailty and dependence upon the love of our Father reaches its climax. We come to a point where all our hope and faith resides upon the One who taught us throughout the journey, the beloved Spirit of Truth, and nothing of what we see, because all we see is falling away as the new comes forth. Only in this pure faith crafted in us by the Spirit of Truth do we have the wings to pass over this chasm.

Nearing the doorway of the veil of flesh, we see a glimmer of light. It’s in this doorway that we encounter Jesus’ outreaching divine love that gives us entry into the Father’s bosom.

Once we pass through the doorway, the spiritual chord is cut. It’s the chord that connects our soul to our self-determined consciousness, thus it’s the root of this consciousness. It’s what keeps us waking up day after day in this dream-state (womb-state); whether in this life or in the next. When it’s cut, the dream is over. It’s similar to the umbilical chord being cut at our physical birth. We no longer wake up in the womb, are fed in the womb, or attached to the womb. We no longer abide in darkness or grow in darkness. We are released into the world of light to continue our growth in its blissful radiance.

As the divine consciousness enters our soul, its fire-like nature severs the old root of our fabricated self and establishes itself as the new root bringing to life our divine self. This severance is a “death” or end to our false fabricated self, and it is life to our true divine self. After the severance during a transitory period, the false self fades away as an illusionary dream, and our true self awakens as a dawning day. (Symbolic of the number of 3; resurrection period) We shine ever brighter as the divine seven elements of the kaleidoscopic rainbow soul of divinity are manifested. It’s a resurrection of our divine soul coming forth from the holy place it’s been crafted in as it’s infused with the divine consciousness. Its divine energy regenerates our reality from the shadow to the real, from the dark to the light. In this, our reflective reality of the self-determined consciousness diminishes as a new reflection of a divine soul begins to shine. It’s our end and our beginning. It’s the awakening out of the dream-state and into the reality of our Father’s divine love.

Arise and Shine

Arise and Shine

Or

Be Shined Upon

 

(Part 11: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)

 

Deep in our soul, his voice calls to us … Wake Up.

The dream is over.

Our soul is in a very deep sleep. This sleep state commenced with the First Parents. As their offspring, we are born into this state. We’ve never been awake.

In this deep sleep, we are under the governance of the self-determined consciousness similar to when we are dreaming, we experience another state of consciousness. This consciousness is separate from the divine consciousness, which is the only true consciousness. Thus, this self-directed consciousness is a “simulated” state much like a dream. It’s unreal and temporary, yet extremely purposeful in creating our divine souls. It’s a state of consciousness before we are truly alive, that’s why we die.

“Dream” Consciousness

When we have a night dream, we enter another state of mind that while we are experiencing it, it can be just as real as our waking consciousness. One reason we dream is to reveal that we are living in a type of dream state.

God is absolute truth and love. In him, there is no absence of these attributes. Thus to be able to choose love and his governing sovereignty, we entered a simulated state of the absence of these attributes so that we may choose them; the soul state of the self-directed consciousness. Because true separation is impossible in divine love, it’s a simulated separation, thus like a dream.

As I mentioned in my last post, when the necessary potentials are fulfilled to bring in the divine consciousness, we will awaken out of this dream and into the only true consciousness, the divine consciousness.

Awakening

For the collective human soul to awaken, the root of creation first awakens, the similitude of the First Parents. Then, all that was created from this original source follows. Thus, as the divine consciousness awakens the root by entering the soul equivalence of the First Parents, it begins to awaken the entire human soul. This resurrection is the soul waking up out of the deep sleep, a likeness of death, where it was governed by the self-directed consciousness, and the soul becoming conscious as it’s governed by the only true consciousness; the divine consciousness.

We awaken by love into love, for God is love. However, some will awaken by the internal light; the divine consciousness flowing through their soul. Others will awaken to the external light; the divine consciousness that flows from those with the internal light.

Awakening to the Internal Light

All the souls prepared by the Spirit of Truth awaken from within by the entrance of the divine consciousness into their souls. Thus, in their soul resurrection, they will reflect the characteristics of the Father.

These souls gained the awareness of their non-repairable depravity as an individual governed by a self-directed consciousness. While traversing this soul journey through this simulated state and heeding the instructions of the Spirit of Truth, an alternate framework of a soul, one of truth and divine love, was crafted within them. This alternate soul is housed within their false fabricated self, which encases this transformed soul like a shell. Their awakening is like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon.

They learned of their inherent lack of righteousness and goodness, and therefore sought and desired to have the only true righteousness of the Father as their own down to every infinitesimal thought. They’ve gone through the transformative preparation that constructed this alternate soul framework, which functions in accordance to the divine consciousness. It was a soul journey of gaining heightened awareness, divine desire, deep repentance (letting go of self-directed consciousness), faith in divine love, and refined patience. Because the Spirit of Truth’s preparation of their souls, they are able to receive the divine consciousness into their soul at their awakening. These will be revealed as the sons/daughters of the Father, for they will reflect his attributes, which together yield divine love.

Awakening to the External Light

Those who awaken to the divine consciousness outside of them are the ones who have not yet gone through this transformative preparation. Therefore, there is no place for the divine consciousness to enter into their soul. They are like a caterpillar waking up from a deep sleep.

However, in contrast to the divine consciousness and the divine love coming from those who possess the internal light, they will be made aware of their true soul condition. In this awareness, they will begin the journey of becoming a transformed soul, assisted by those with the internal light.

God is love. Where he is, love is. We are all treated equally according to his perfect divine love. We all go through this transformative process so that all can be united to him in divine love. This regeneration of the collective human soul will continue until God is all in all.

Deceptive Soul States

To awaken with the internal light, we are in a soul condition of desiring nothing of our self-directed consciousness and only his righteousness, which is the only true righteousness. Righteousness is creating perfect cause and effect, something only possible with the divine consciousness. And through this perfection, divine love is expressed.

Thus, the most deceptive self-determined state of mind we can possess is to believe we are good or righteousness in our current consciousness. If we believe this then we won’t be in the soul state of completely desiring to let go of the self-directed consciousness, thus our soul isn’t prepared to receive the governance of the divine consciousness, which comes in divine love, thus in accordance to our divine desire for it.

This self-righteous mentality greatly misleads those who possess it or desire to achieve it. (It’s the most cunning of states, what Eve succumbed to.) Good intentions of a self-directed consciousness may reflect a soul is learning, but they don’t produce truly good results. Only the divine consciousness creates immortal goodness, which is truly good for all. However, the sincere desire isn’t insignificant. This desire to love perfectly prepares our soul for the divine consciousness that allows us to give the divine love we long to give.

So though we grow in the desire to act in a pure divine love, any truly good results aren’t of us, but only by the mercy of God. The non self-righteousness person understands this truth.

Thus, a belief system in which we believe our current consciousness can progress into perfection keeps us infinitely separated from the divine consciousness. Instead, we must let go of our self-directed consciousness to be raised in the one true divine consciousness.

Another deceptive state is not sincerely caring if our consciousness is corrupt or not. Thus living without any true deep “repentance”. Again, without a true desire to change and/or not knowing what to change toward, there isn’t a sincere letting go of the self-directed consciousness. This divine consciousness is of love, thus it must be desired in its totality.

Both of these states and the variations of them, keep us holding onto the self-determined consciousness instead of desiring to “die” to it to obtain the divine consciousness. If we possess this soul state, then we’ll awaken to the light outside of us instead of in us.

This “simulated” consciousness serves to teach us that it’s faulty, and the only true life comes from a oneness with the divine consciousness. No matter how intelligent, advanced, loving or refined we become within its limitations, we can’t create immortal harmony in this dream-state because it’s disconnected from the divine consciousness. We have to be awakened.

The First Parents

The First Parents

Coming Full Circle

(Part 10: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)

 

Jesus Christ unveiled the potential of being connected to our Creator in a oneness so that the divine consciousness governs us and no longer our self-determined consciousness. He also teaches us the way to its fulfillment. This potential still resides as a potential. Thus, we remain in our faith. When this potential manifests, a new heavens and a new earth will form as one harmonious unit.

The manifestation of this potential’s fulfillment goes back to the beginning where it all started, the First Parents. As their offspring, we are extensions of their spirits. We are living the potentials of their original creation of the self-determined consciousness. When the potentials are fulfilled the circle of life will be complete, and the eternal light of life will be created within the human soul. Then, we will live out the potentials of the divine consciousness.

As a collective human soul; it took two to manifest the governance of the self-determined consciousness, and it takes two to manifest the governance of the divine consciousness. Though we all play a part, in this creation there are two who serve as the connection point to the Father in the likeness of First Parents. It’s the bookends of creation. They connect this realm of disharmony, where the self-directed consciousness governs, and the realm of harmony where the divine consciousness governs. Thus, they function like a gate. Therefore, there will be two who fulfill the final set of potentials completing the human soul journey. They will possess the relationship reflected in the First Parents: a certain relationship to one another, to the Father, and to creation.

This First Parent soul journey is symbolized in the two cherubimtwo olives trees, two anointed ones, two witnessestwo on the right and left hand of Christ, among other places. Their soul journey is written throughout the Bible in many types, forms, stories, and analogies.

Birthing a creation of divine human souls from two was and still is the Creator’s perfect design. Immortal harmony grows from one perfect seed, from one perfect point. This point of perfection is where the human soul realm and the realm of God meet; which is our point of origin. God is always beyond creation. So his realm of perfect unborn potentials of divine love and truth is always beyond his creations, which express those potentials. As a point, harmony is created. Following one star in the night sky keeps us on track. This singular touch point between this creation and God’s eternal realm enables perfect governance of this realm. As everything grows out from this singular point, everything is in harmony with it. This point of God connects to the origin of the soul. When he resides at our point of origin, we are in him and he is in us, which enables his perfect governance through our individuality.

As I shared in a recent comment, the kingdom of God comes within. God’s regenerative spirit (kingship) is coming within us, not outside of us. This is the only way immortal harmony and our individuality can exist. Right now his internal light does not govern us. We each have our own point of reference so we create disharmony; as we are our own “kings”. We are under his absolute governance, yet experiencing a soul state in which we are governed by our own self-directed consciousness, thus disharmony is created. When his kingdom comes within, he is governing within us as he does in Christ Jesus. This is how immortal harmony is created among so many individuals. This will create our oneness with him, with Christ Jesus, and with each other. This internal governance creates a oneness in which we bear the likeness of his spirit attributes, which all together can be summed up in divine love. Because he comes from within us and flows through us, his spirit expresses itself through our individuality. When Christ Jesus says when you see me, you see the Father; we see the likeness of the character of the Father through the individuality of Christ Jesus. Thus, God resides at our point of origin to create immortal harmony. And, his point of origin to the collective human soul is found in the likeness of the First parents from which we all came, and are connected to.

This collective human soul point resides in the divine love space between the First Parents, like the point in the middle of the infinity symbol. This point doesn’t reside in just one or the other, but in the space between them where their souls interconnect in divine love, for God is love. This is how God is in them and yet beyond them. This is how he can be in creation, yet beyond creation. This type of connection is a life-giving connection, as taught in a creation of a child. Through this point, his spirit flows to the rest of the human soul.

Initially, the First Parents “birthed” the opposite of this divine consciousness; the self-determined consciousness. This served to create divine desire so that the human soul could manifest a soul state that could partake of God’s Spirit. Therefore, they entered into a dream-state, which we are born into. We are living out the potentials they created in manifesting a self-directed consciousness as we traverse the wasteland of a self-determined will and experience all it created. In this awareness, divine desire is created in the collective human soul. We are all connected, what we do as one and for one, we do for all.

In a divine soul state, united as male and female the First Parents represent the characteristics and likeness of God. As two parts of a whole, they represent the oneness of God in the divine love that exists between them; for God is love. The unity of their spirits as one represents his life-giving spirit. Because of the nature of their likeness to the Creator’s characteristics, through their point of connection in divine love, in which he can connect, his liquid light of life can enter and spread into the entire human soul.

As the final potentials of this journey are fulfilled, we regenerate into divine souls by the inflow of the Spirit of God through their regenerated soul. The divine consciousness is “birthed” into this realm, replacing the self-directed consciousness. Their souls reside as a singular purified prismatic soul connecting to the point of perfection in which the substance of divine love, thus divine consciousness, can flow into creation. As this Spirit is poured upon the children of the human soul and the creation they impact, all are regenerated into a harmonious whole. In this, God is all in all.

The Portal of Divine Desire

The Portal of Divine Desire

Rising out of the Ashes

(Part 9: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)

 

The soul element of divine desire is the gateway in our soul to the open door of Christ’s soul. Our doorway is opened once this desire is shaped into its fullness. In its fullness, it becomes a portal in our soul that the divine consciousness flows into and regenerates every other soul element until we are fully divine. It’s the connection point of our oneness with our eternal Father, for this desire comes into our being from beyond ourselves in the creative space of God. Thus, as our desires are aligned to his, oneness begins to form. Divine desire contains all the unborn divine potentials for a divine human soul. And within God is every unborn potential that expresses absolute truth and divine love.

Though the First Parents were perfect in their soul elements, they lacked this divine desire. The nature of this desire is born out of imperfection. To be intimately connected to God in a oneness with his governing sovereignty and divine love, a sincere desire for both, without any reservation, needed to be created in the human soul. This soul journey into a dream-like state where we experience a likeness of a soul state and corresponding reality absent of his divine love and divine consciousness serves the purpose to create this eternal portal. Love is a choice, thus first comes as a desire. And, the imperfections we experience create the awareness and the longing to be utterly consumed by his sovereignty. God can only exist where he is God, and God is love. Thus, we must desire not only a oneness in divine love, but also a full governance of his divine consciousness.

The Creation of Divine Desire

Our soul journey entails learning from the fabricated self, shedding it, and becoming a divine self. It’s one of increasing awareness, divine desire, letting go (repentance), faith in divine love, and refined patience. The analogies: a birth of a child, a bride and bridegroom, a metamorphosis of a butterfly, and a growing seed all reveal integral aspects of this transformative journey into a new creation.

Divine desire is birthed from the imperfection created by a single rebellious thought. Symbolized by the one erroneous thought of Eve that led to our current reality. This rebellious thought was used to create this necessary soul element. Living out this rebellious thought teaches us all what one little contrary thought can create. It teaches that apart from our Father’s governance in the most infinitesimal way, we create disharmony thus destruction. It teaches the extent that we need God’s governance; to the extent of possessing his divine consciousness. Thus, it teaches us the degree to which we need to let go of our self-made consciousness.

This contrary thought multiplied and spread to create the imperfect finite self, our false-fabricated self. It manifests the state in which all our seven soul elements are driven by our self-determined consciousness, thus it negates the possibility of harmony. All of us together, as reflective of the human soul, are expressions of the many potentials created by a self-directed consciousness. Likewise, we will all be expressions of the much more extensive potentials of the divine consciousness.

By traversing this soul journey, we are able to become a perfection beyond perfection infinite divine soul. By witnessing and suffering the corruption it created, we come to yearn for a divine consciousness. In response to this longing, God creates a oneness with our soul that transforms us into a limitless divine soul in which He can dwell. In a union with him, we become an ever-expanding soul, thus growing into perfection beyond perfection; for in him we are without limit.

Letting Go

Thus, the flipside of divine desire is a deep repentance. This depth of repentance means wanting to let go of everything of our selves and our reality that are contrary to the nature of divine love, thus we turn toward everything that is divine love. But the final letting go or dissolving of this self transpires when we become a new creation of his workmanship.

When we are mindful of the instructions of the Spirit of Truth, our disillusions about any “goodness” we may have begins to fade. Our awareness heightens to what our false fabricated self truly creates. Our awareness continues to increase until we despise even an infinitesimal quark of the self-directed consciousness. In this awareness, our desire for divine love is ignited, which expands into our desire for the divine consciousness. For along the way we learn, we can’t give divine love without the divine consciousness; they operate as one.

Because the Spirit of Truth brought us to this point of awareness, we also perceive our potential for a divine soul state of ever-expanding beauty. It’s a soul condition of while reflecting our individuality to the utmost; we are also reflecting God’s. To be our own god is the ultimate prison because of our limited finite mind. For God to be our God is the ultimate freedom because of our access to his limitless pool of divine potentials that can flow through us.

As divine desire comes into its fullness, we experience an all-consuming soul demolition of our fabricated self until there is a complete release of all aspiration of our expedient driving will or power. We become as ash. In this state, we feel weak and powerless in our self, for we’ve given up our ambitions to create anything from our self-determined consciousness.

In this growing contrast between the two soul states, divine desire is manifested and intensified. It’s a long and winding journey for our soul as we learn what is of this love and what isn’t. We see by contrasts. If we don’t fully perceive our depravity to our point of origin, we don’t fully desire with all our being the divinity of God. We can’t possess a full awareness of one, without the other.

Through it all, God is using everything for our highest good. In mercy, he creates the perfect balance to sustain us in this finite soul state, and yet allows this temporal reality to have its intended effect upon our soul; to create divine desire.

Through this transition state, our new soul reflection, which has been formed by the truths of divine love, struggles to come alive; pushing through the dirt of our false self. As our new soul comes forth, we feel the intensity like a plant breaking out of the soil, or a child coming out of the womb, or a butterfly out of a cocoon. But, the struggle is part of shedding the old so that the new may come forth. And through it all as we listen, we “hear” the deep meaning of the encouraging and enlightening messages of Christ: “Repent the kingdom is at hand”, “you must be born again”, “enter by the narrow gate”.

When we come to a place of utterly fully and completely wanting nothing of our fabricated self then we’ve let go of the false self. And this awareness creates the desire to be utterly, fully and completely consumed with the divine consciousness. In this cognizance, we desire for every soul element to be divine, thus our desire becomes divine. This depth of awareness prepares us to establish a oneness with God in love. Thus, the purpose of the experience of our fabricated self is fulfilled and it’s no longer needed. Though we desire nothing of it, we are immensely grateful for the lessons it taught us that we couldn’t have learned any other way. It enabled a true oneness with our divine Father; that otherwise couldn’t have happened. Yet, now it becomes dust in the wind and a new soul reflection, pure and divine, rises out of the ashes.
