We are One Flesh

We are One Flesh

space

Last week, this truth awakened me to a new depth of profound porportions that will forever change my perspective of myself and others.

Separation is an illusion.

There is no separation between you and me. You are the expression of me given your heritage, experiences, and perceptions.

Each one of us is a different potential lived out that could have been our own.

 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover him, And not hide yourself from your own flesh?  Isaiah 58:7

What I do to you, I do to myself.

What I do to myself, I do to you.

What we do to ourselves and others, we do to our Creator.

These aren’t theoretical statements, but the reality in which we function.

When we change, it changes how we perceive, respond and treat others.

All are connected.

Separateness is an illusion.

When we judge, we keep the illusion alive.

 “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12

May this truth be a guiding light within our soul,

And may our utmost desire be to do all in pure love and for love.

Let all that you do be done with love. 1 Corinthians 16:14

Entering the Present & Presence

 Erasing Time

Entering into the Present

& Presence of our Father

 

 

Light at end of the tunnel. Hope metaphor.

 

Within our present moment is the door to our divine Father. It’s in the present that we find a connection to him. It’s in the present where we are able to hear his intimate counsels to our heart.

When we step out of the present and dwell in the past or the future, we lose our connection. These are in the realm of the unreal, and he doesn’t exist in the unreal. His dwelling place is the eternal present. To meet with his spirit that is where we must go.

At first this place seems fleeting to us, like trying to grasp water with our hand. But as we learn to enter through this door and listen, it becomes a frequented watering hole for our soul until it becomes our home.

Through a stillness in our soul in the quiet of the day we enter this place and his counsels remold us. His truths enfolded in love replace our once held beliefs and truths that robbed us from the love and its collection of fulfilled promises we desired. As his love works upon our soul instilling truths where there once were lies, we find freedom from our self-judgments, which releases us from our past. And we find freedom from fear, which releases us from our future. Without judgment of the past and fear of the future to bind us to what isn’t real, we too begin to find our home in the eternal present until one day it is all we know. And, time that once held us captive to the unreal is erased.

The Perfect Gift Exchange

The Perfect Gift Exchange

 

Tree Soul

Soul Tree 

by Angela Wales Rocket

 

There is no greater or more cherished gift for ourselves or for our divine Father than for us to freely, willingly, and desirously give him our “free” will to govern. He accepts it under no other terms. In a joyful release of this gift, an immortal bond of love is established between us and the Spiritual Parent of our souls. From this immortal choice, we eternally expand by his divine harmony.

Our will is the power to control our actions, impulses and emotions. Possessing control of our will is like being a dormant seed in the ground. Our soul remains encased by a hard shell of confinement as our governance of will is fraught with limitations and illusions. These create a perceived separation from love that lead to pain, suffering, guilt, fear, judgment, pride, and decay. Our Father’s will for us is boundless as it flows from the perfection of love and truth. In his governance, we become a tree of life of abundant growth. In his magnificent rays of eternal light our souls expand branch by branch.

With our Father’s divine love guiding every movement, our finite soul that was encased in a tiny shell of limitation breaks open and starts to grow into a magnificent tree of eternal life. As our roots of understanding reach beyond the limitations of this earthly realm into the consciousness of our Father, they drink in his truth and divine love. Over time this nourishment cracks open our shelled soul bound by the confinements of our will as it takes on his will of divine truth and love. In time, we witness growth pushing out of the soil. Our external reality is changed in ways we long hoped for during our seemingly endless days of cultivation. But as the seedling sprouts, those days of traversing the wilderness of our soul as we sought for his living waters to flow through our dendritic roots pale in comparison to the glories that his loving husbandry creates through us.

We are soul. Our soul determines all that our spirit, mind and body reflect. God is soul. In the connection of our souls is where our oneness is fashioned. His soul through a metamorphic oneness with ours becomes the progenitor of all that we are; spirit, mind and body. We open up the door of our soul and welcome him home when we realize there is no greater gift; none more desirable and precious than for his will to consume our own at a depth in which we experience his will as our own. In this oneness, every transgressive potentiality is extinguished and we find the fulfillment of all our hopes and all his promises.

Uniquely Arrayed

Uniquely Arrayed

 

Snowflake background

 

Each one of our personal relationships with our Creator is as unique as each snowflake that dances upon this earthen realm.

Though our Creator is unchanging and constant because his very essence is truth and perfect love, our individual relationships with him vary as much as the legendary uniqueness of snowflakes. Like snowflakes, the basic elements that construct our relationships may be similar, but how they are expressed through the interaction of our individuality and his nature creates a distinctiveness of its own particular beauty and glory. Thus, we each wear the expressions of the nature of our relationship to our Creator. And as our relationship deepens, expands and grows so does our uniqueness because his love fosters growth, honor and freedom in the expressions of our individuality.

Our individuality expands through an increasing pure love in our lives. Love releases us from the fears, judgments and pride that bind us to conformity. It expands our personality as it flows in and through it, where as all that is contrary to love stifles us. It is love that develops our individuality, and through love we find our truest expressions.

Not only is our individuality expressed in our relationship, but also our Creator radiants a unique expression through each relationship. Thus, our intimate connections with him reflect his unlimited expressions of his nature and characteristics. This gift is our personal sacred treasure as it is his.

In this awareness, we begin to perceive the infinite value that each one of us possesses. When we perceive this value, we begin to see others and ourselves arrayed in this boundless worth … as beautiful snowflakes.

Transforming Connection

Transforming Connection

The uppermost place is encountered in our innermost place.

To connect to “above” is found by connecting deep within. This connection moves us into and through a beautiful transformation of our soul. When we are ready through the infusion of truth and love, we make our final severance from the foundations that we use to traverse upon and our soul experiences a metamorphosis.

This higher or inner connection grants us new perspectives as light starts to fill what was darkened by illusion. Fear, judgments, and pride begin to fall away as a purity of love not seen before, yet was always there, takes their place in our humble abodes. By the workings of this love, we experience a welcomed harmony forming within. In the movement of change, our bodies, which are the expressions of our souls, reflect an increasing radiance as love’s light starts to fill us from within.

With increasing clarity, the eyes of our soul begin to see our Father as he truly is, and as a result we start to see ourselves as we truly are – beloved, cherished and precious in his sight as he is to us. We are the beautiful workmanship of his loving hands. In this awareness, our judgments of our souls’ progressions and others’ fade. We each uniquely experience the journey of a soul who is born in darkness and is moving into the light. Though unique, the creative force of change is the same, divine love enfolding truth. As we honor ourselves and others’ stages of transformation guided by our Father’s all-knowing hand, we learn, inspire, and grow and in this our love expands within and without.

Never Alone

Never Alone

The Whispers of our Spiritual Parent

Our Spiritual Parent, the origin and home of our souls, has been talking to us our entire lives. I’ve heard his quiet whispering for as long as I can remember. Telling me I shouldn’t go that way or I should go this way. Sometimes I listened, often I didn’t. Others’ voices seemed more compelling, even though deep down I knew better. He was the one who truly knew best and always led me with a pure love. Sometimes I got so use to tuning him out, it was hard to hear. But, he has always been with me and leading me in what was best for my soul and others.

His whispers into our soul’s ear is evidence to his constant, unchanging, perfect and pure love having always been with us. We were never left alone no matter where we were or the condition of our soul. Nothing can separate us from his love. We are his beloved offspring regardless of our soul condition, and his endless loving whispers remind of us of this truth of who we truly are and his love for us.

I’m going through some changes. They are such that it makes it difficult to write because the foundation from what I write from is shifting. I’m usually very consistent in my posting, so I wanted you to know.
