Manifesting Divine Energy

Manifesting Divine Energy

 

All my being (body, mind and soul) is yoked by divine energy that vibrates from the eternal Source of life within. It’s the vibration of vitality, regeneration, love, and eternal life.  

~ Awakened Divine Self

All is energy. Matter is the illusion. When we awaken to this higher plane of understanding, our understanding expands expotentially.

Energy’s vibrations are shaped by our state of consciousness. Our shadow-self (directed by a self-directed consciousness) exudes a low frequency energy that eventually breaks down (i.e., death) because of its disharmonious thought-forms. The Divine Self (directed by the divine consciousness) exudes divine energy that eternally expands (i.e., life) because of its harmonious thought-forms. This latter energy frequency is formed by the unhindered and unceasing divine love flowing between the Creator and the soul (in a giving and receiving relationship), and the soul and Creation (again in a giving and receiving relationship). These aren’t just ethereal thoughts I’m sharing, but the very genesis of eternal life. 

Various soul conditions manifest this divine energy within our mind, body and soul. Below I share four significant ones.

1. The soul’s singular desire to seek the “the Kingdom of Heaven”.

When the soul desires above all else to seek the reign of the divine consciousness in all of its being (“to seek the kingdom of heaven” and the Lord and Mastery of the Christ consciousness in the soul, mind and body), then the soul is awakened into a state of oneness. In this desire, the soul willingly lets go of all other contrary pursuits for this high calling so that the sublime oneness it possesses in the spiritual plane may manifest upon the plane of the senses. Through this union, divine energy manifests in the soul, mind and body which bring these three into life (immortality).

2. The soul singularly follows the Master Teacher within.

When the soul exalts the Master Teacher within (the Christ consciousness) as its foremost teacher then it is able to learn and grow in all the ways necessary to prepare its soul, mind and body for the expression of the Divine Self. The inner Teacher utilizes everything in the soul’s reality to instruct and teach, thus the soul is a student of all in humility and mindfulness. If the soul exalts anything or anyone outside of itself above this inner Teacher, it stifles the soul’s ability to gain and develop the necessary thought-forms required to express the Divine Self and manifest this higher energy of eternal life.

3. The soul’s release of the shadow-self.

The purpose of the shadow-self is to create an understanding of divine love; which is accomplished by the soul learning from all of the shadow-self’s “imperfections”. Once the purpose of the shadow-self is finished (signified by the soul’s consuming desire for divine love to motivate every desire, thought and action), then the shadow-self and its self-directed consciousness are consumed by the rising light of the Divine Self (divine consciousness) within. The shadow-self fades as the Divine Self finds expression in the mind and body through the portal of the prepared soul.

Because this transmutation occurs within the soul’s consciousness, the soul intimately experiences every gyration and “earthquake” of this letting go and renewal process. The soul enters a place of “non-being” (i.e., selflessness, emptiness) as all it once knew is stripped away and it awaits its new garments of divinity. It encounters the battle between the self-directed will and the divine will as one reign is usurped by another. It witnesses the victories of the sovereign Spirit as it makes its home in the soul.

During this metamorphosis, the lower frequency energy of the shadow-self is transmuted into the higher frequency of the Divine Self. This higher energy within the soul, mind and body brings forth immortality into all the soul’s being and expression (resurrection). Divine love can only be expressed by the Divine Self. Thus, as the Divine Self finds expression through the soul, mind and body so does divine love find expression in Creation. In its expression, divine energy flows into Creation.

4. The soul resurrects into the Divine Consciousness (Christ consciousness).

The soul engages the Christ consciousness through diligent meditation, prayer, and heeding the Spirit’s instruction until the divine consciousness becomes the soul’s permanent resident. As this higher consciousness lifts the soul, it lifts all of creation with it, for what is done in divine love is done for all.

 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” John 12:32

Once the soul awakens to this higher consciousness, the soul becomes filled with divine energy that flows into its mind and body, yoking the three in unity. The soul then ceases to function by the self-directed consciousness (which is bound to the plane of the senses), and instead operates from this higher dimension that is sovereign over the senses. Thus all of Creation is lifted into one harmonious whole with the Creator.

Divine love comes through the Divine Self. Its energy is the vibration that creates life (immortality) and awakens the soul from its dream and into the glorious eternal present of the eternal presence.

The Anointing

 

The Anointing

Anointing = the possession of the subconsciousness by the divine consciousness (Christ consciousness). 

Our anointing is the inner work of our Creator. He is pouring himself into and through us, and into creation in order to manifest himself. Our anointing follows the preparatory work of our soul that creates a deep awareness of the nature of divine love that in turn creates an all-consuming desire to give this love to all always. This desire is authenticated within our soul by situations in which we previously withdrew our love but now we desire to be an outlet of divine love.

The anointing at this deep creative level of our being is experienced on the conscious level as stages of movement into a higher consciousness. We advance through these levels by A) receiving relevant instruction from the Spirit within, B) desiring to follow the instruction with all our being (desire creates an open door for the Spirit of God to work freely in us), and C) our circumstances providing a means to integrate the instructions into our consciousness.

Conscious Examples of the Anointing:

We become aware that every occurrence in our life serves the purpose of manifesting divine love by presenting us opportunities to give this love. Thus where we perceive a lack of divine love, we consciously exude it.

We exalt ALL in equanimity and as we do we lift all into this higher consciousness and exalt the Creator who is all in all.

We experience the methodical dissolution of the shadow self (become self-less) and all it has manifested (i.e., personalities, past and future imaginations, current reality, purposes, desires, expectations, limitations, etc.) as it is supplanted by the one Divine Self, which was hidden beneath our lower self. We desire to manifest the Divine Self and no longer a contrived separate self.

We cease to perceive life in separation and begin to see oneness in all things. Thus, we no longer consider our Creator as separate from us (or anything else), but an integral part of us as there is only one Divine consciousness that fills all in all.

We perceive that the creative power moves from within us out; thus all transformation and regeneration comes through our soul, which when self-less is an open door to the divine consciousness.

We perceive that through our connection to the divine consciousness we have access to all knowledge and wisdom. These flow into our awareness through the mechanisms of remembrance and intuition.

We constantly experience adjustments in our thoughts as our mind now serves the Christ consciousness and no longer the self-directed consciousness of the lower self. Thus, our decisions and actions change accordingly.

We creatively rise above the limitations of time and space into the realm of the eternal present.

These and many others are transitions we experience on a conscious level during our sacred anointing of the Spirit. As this eternal presence expands in our soul, we are delivered into the kingdom of the Christ consciousness and we become living expressions of divine truth and love.

Because the transition is happening in our consciousness (which is a creative mechanism), as we shift from one created reality to another we are constantly experiencing the sensational exchange from the land of illusions to the kingdom of the Christ consciousness. Thus we go through the mental gyrations of letting go of one and engaging of the other, which create struggles or battles in our mind and soul. As we are changing inwardly in our awareness, the residual outward manifestations of the lower self counter what we are experiencing inwardly, thus a battle is felt within our soul between what is within and what we perceive without.

To facilitate our transition, the Spirit instructs us to focus on the transformative nature of divine love and not on the world of senses. As we do, the creations of the lower self subside and the manifestations of the Divine Self find creative space to take form. During this transition, we are called to greater times of A) meditation, B) prayer in which the desires of our Creator are made manifest through his consciousness in us, C) reflective thought that opens up our conscious understanding to facilitate our transformation, and D) listening to the Spirit for instruction and counsel which guide us into the manifestation of the divine consciousness.

Though we experience these disruptions, the work is the Creator’s, for we are his perfect workmanship from beginning to end. However, as we’ve experienced the challenges of transformation, we also will experience the ever-expanding glories of eternal growth, and the latter far outweighs the former.

Divine gratitude (gratitude for the divine truth as known through the lens of divine love) is a significant tool in this transformation. Because this is the work of consciousness, what we focus on expands. When we are sincerely grateful for the elements of divinity that we perceive in truth and spirit, then those elements expand and become manifest in our reality; as the outer is a reflection of the inner. When this creative act is consistently done it facilitates the manifestation of the divine consciousness into our expressed reality.

This anointing is the manifestation of our soul as an eternal outlet to the Spirit of God. It creates an ever-expanding beauty, abundance, harmony, sublime oneness, divine love and joy that touches every part of creation from within us. It is the freedom and victory in all things for us and for all.

Draped in the Divine Consciousness

Draped in the Divine Consciousness

 

We are each a phase of our Creator’s consciousness, thus a phase of each others’ consciousness.

Each aspect of “our world” (each living his/her simulated reality of his/her consciousness), every detail, situation, relationship, and personality is being used to create divine love in creation, thus making creation an expression of our Creator, who is love. In other words, our Creator is working through our consciousnesses to create divine love; thus integrate himself as the underling nature and power of Creation.

Divine love consists of many attributes. Some of its most beautifully profound characteristics are those that can not be understood except through the perspective of a perceived separation; divine love is merciful, transformative, unchanging, consistent, unwavering, constant, healing, regenerative, redemptive, uplifting, honoring, gentle, kind, giving, abundant, faithful, nurturing, comforting, unfailing, holy, and humble.

perceived state of separation manifests a lower state of consciousness, which is initially unaware of divine love. This state enables an understanding of these attributes of divine love. Thus, this “lower” consciousness is used by our Creator, thus a phase of his consciousness, to manifest the fullness of divine love in Creation.

Once these qualities of divine love are received into the soul, then the consciousness of separation (which creates a separate “self”) is no longer necessary and can no longer exist.  In the consummation of this love, the soul awakens, as if from a dream, to its oneness with the Creator that has always been. It recognizes the divine consciousness within that has been manifesting itself through the use of the “lower” consciousness by creating an awareness of divine love. As this awareness grows in the soul, the soul methodically begins to express the divine consciousness by reflecting the Divine Self through its individuality. The divine love, now consciously known in the soul, removes all aspects of separation and brings the soul into a conscious state of oneness. In this awareness, the Creator manifests an expressed created form of his uncreated form.

The formation of divine love in creation is the Christ consciousness; a consciousness that manifests divine love and truth in a myriad of expressions. It’s the connection between the created and the uncreated (God’s infinite potential).

We are all a part of the divine consciousness, and always have been as divine love is manifested through our “lower” consciousness. It’s imperfection served to create a perfection beyond perfection or an ever-expansive perfection. Our soul’s journey serves to teach us of the many characteristics of divine love and then to awaken us to what has always been. We awaken as we perceive divine love and as our thoughts are renewed by this love (through the instruction of the Teacher within, prayer, meditation, and other spiritual practices that lift our consciousness into the Christ consciousness), which create this love in our experiential reality. Thus, we transition into a substantive oneness with the Divine Consciousness.

Our concept of a separate self shadows (hides) the open door to the Christ consciousness; the door which resides in the inner chamber of our soul. As we awaken to divine love, our lower self, which is created by the lower consciousness, dissolves to reveal the eternally open door (oneness) to the Christ consciousness. In this awareness, the Divine Self expands. Through the transformation of our mind (as it begins to serve the Divine consciousness), we experience the expression of the Divine Self or oneness. We perceive we are a phase or expression of the Divine Self, an expression of the Christ consciousness where all are united as one. I am a phase of you and you are are phase of me because we are all expressions of the divine consciousness.

In this dissolution of self; separation ends. Our eye becomes singular as his eye. It becomes full of light thus manifests the light.

In every phase of consciousness we experience, our Creator is working to manifest a reflection of himself; divine love. This understanding brings reconciliation, purpose, peace and meaning to all our phases of awareness. 

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Phil 2:13

The more we perceive of truth the more beautiful it becomes to us (one way we know we are aligning to truth). I see this expanding beauty in all that I’m perceiving and it drapes me in garments of praise. How grateful I am for the teachings of the Teacher within.

You are Powerful in Divine Love

You are Powerful in Divine Love

 

As I share what I received today, I desire the Spirit of Truth to reveal to you what I am seeing with my mind’s eye, which I feel words are insufficient to express. May you be enlightened in these thoughts that are living waters to our soul.

Back Story

For a season, we needed to forget.

As divine beings we needed to forget our oneness with the divine consciousness (Spirit of Christ) to learn a myriad of lessons in divine love so that we could divinely love. Learning these lessons in a simulated, experiential reality enable us to be truly one with our Creator and an expression of our Creator, whose defining attribute is divine love. Like an embryo in the womb, we are in creation before creation.

We entered the shadow lands (darkness) at our created soul’s birth. It was a state of consciousness absent of the “light” (awareness of divine love and divine truth). As our soul travels through this darkness and into the light (the path of enlightenment), we learn through the contrasts created between the darkness of unawareness and the light of divine love (summation of all the divine attributes). Through these contrasts we are able to experience the many layers and characteristics of divine love, so that our soul comprehends its depth of beauty in order to give and receive it. And once we begin to enter its light, we can do no other than become it.

Thus, our journey entails awakening to what is.

Awakening to the Divine Self Within

Jesus Christ revealed our true state through his state – a Son of God; a divine immortal being who is one with God. He demonstrated to us what is within us by showing us what was within him, the Christ Spirit, which is the divine consciousness of the Creator (Father). The Spirit in him, the Christ Spirit (the expressed Spirit of God in creation), is the same Spirit in us – which we are born unaware of but are called to awaken to through an inward journey of the soul. Our journey entails awakening to this Spirit within and as we do, we remember all we have always been. There is no separation in God, he is One and he is all in all. And as we remember our oneness our divine power to create grows.

 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:12

Jesus Christ entered the physical realm so that we could become aware of his existence. Once his physical body departed, we could become aware of his true nature as Spirit which is outside the time and space dimension created by the mortal mind. The Christ in him is able to reveal himself to us from within us; spirit to spirit. In this understanding we comprehend that his Spirit is always with us. The Christ Spirit in him is able to be known within us and thus reveal that we are also a part of the Christ Spirit. Focusing on his spirit’s physical manifestation keeps the time and space dimension around his spirit active in your mind (creating the illusion of separation) until you transcend and realize the higher dimensions of his eternal present and oneness.

As we engage and learn from him in this higher and yet deeper dimension, we begin to realize that we have always been one with this Christ Spirit, for it is the Spirit of God that flows through us all. We realize his voice is the voice we have heard all of our lives, even before we were aware of whose voice it was. It is the singular voice of God that is made manifest through our divine self. This voice is the creative power of God, which finds expression through our beings.

When we are aligned to divine love, God employs his creative power to manifest divine love through us. As we awaken to the Christ within, we realize the extensive power we possess in divine love. Outside of divine love, our creative power is very confined. Though we experience a creative power in the illusionary state of separation, it is extremely limited and bounded and ends in non-existence (death). But within the consciousness of divine love, our limits are only to the extent of our current awareness; which is always expanding (eternal). We are powerful beyond our current comprehension to create our reality, for our power in divine love is ever increasing and always will be; for divine love desires to continually manifest and expand itself.

“And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13 

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” John 15:7 

As God’s power to create resides within his words, our power is contained within our thoughts and beliefs and the words that express them. And as all is energy, our thoughts and words shape, move and direct this energy, which gives form to our physical experience. When our thoughts and words are supportive of divine love, then our ability to create is only limited by our present awareness. As we awaken, we remember.

As we remember, our ability to be the creative hand of God expands.

Birth of Oneness

Birth of Oneness

 

In a magnificent array of unique splendor, I am You, You are Me, and We are He when we are true to our Divine Self.

Our true divine selves are all connected by one Spirit; so that the “I” in all of us is one with each other and one with the Spirit of God, thus our true-self is the Divine Self. Our beliefs coming into alignment with this truth is the birth of Oneness among us.

This one unifying Spirit is the Christ Spirit, which is the expressed Spirit of God within the human soul. It is only the belief in our false-selves (a belief of self based on a separation from each other and from God) that creates a reality of separation and all the attributes it manifests. As we let go of our false-selves (a conglomeration of lies and illusions) by the active renewing of our minds in truth so that all that remains is our Divine Self, we find a harmonious connection to all in Creation.

We are each creators of “our world” by the current state of our consciousness. As we are so is the experience of “our world.” The attributes we live within we experience without. I’ve come to see this very plainly in my life. Though the mirror reflection can be hard to see because of my erroneous beliefs, it is by seeing that I learn what is of truth and what isn’t so that I have a choice to let go of one and embrace the another. This awakening process is the journey of a life-seeking soul.

As we embrace the divine attributes of the Divine Self through prayer, meditation, living faith, divine trust and belief then they methodically become our expressed reality. This is a very long process in my experience and estimation, but for those whose first desire is to seek the divine righteousness and the Kingdom of God it is the path of life. Beliefs are not easily changed, it is what makes them beliefs. But through a constant absorption of the counsels and instructions of the Spirit of Truth that flows through our Divine Self within, these beliefs slowly change to align to the Truth; and in time manifest abundant life.

(We’ve all heard these counsels and instructions all our lives, it is only coming to recognize the Source, thus their Voice, as well as the distinction between our false-self and Divine Self that enables us to tune into them.)

As we embrace the divine attributes through cultivating a disciplined mind to the mind of Christ (again our Divine Self mind), we find these attributes always existed within our true-self. So, it is a process of awakening or growing in awareness of our true state that has been hidden in the shadows of our false-self. During the process of renewing our minds, we relentlessly put off or reject any thoughts contrary to the expression of these divine attributes until our mind is in service to the Christ Spirit within (the life force of our Divine Self).

Because our sovereign God governs our Divine Self which is one with him (as it is his expressed nature through our individualized souls), if both you and I are living within the consciousness of this true-self, then we find harmony. If we are believing and thus acting in the conditions and traits of our false-self then we experience disharmony in a myriad of ways.

All is in a constant flow of energy determined by our state of consciousness. As our consciousness changes so does the flow of energy thus the formation of our reality or “our world.” And because energy is in a constant flow, small changes in our consciousness affect our reality. Nothing is permanent or fixed. All is fluid and changeable, which is good news for us.

As creators of our reality, we are under the absolute sovereignty of our Creator; thus regardless of our current state (false or true), all is under his sovereign determination, also comforting news. Everything is being used for our highest good and as we spend time upon this path, we come to see this in the smallest of details. As our lives come into alignment to our Divine Self, then we create a reality of abundant life, love, peace and joy. It is unawareness and rebellion to this Spirit that creates anything else.

The trials in our lives that create the suffering of our souls exist to humble us so that we desire to acquiesce all we are to the Christ Spirit, the “I” within us, who is constantly desiring to guide us along the paths of life. It is through these trying and humbling experiences that we learn that by singularly abiding within the consciousness of our Divine Self that we experience abundant life, truth and all we truly desire.

Our Creator’s home within this Creation is within our Divine Self; for it is his expressed Spirit in a magnificent array of individualities. Thus, it is through an inner soulful exploration that we “find” him; and an outward expression of divine attributes (especially divine love) that we experience him. Let us be persistent to seek to be true to our Divine Self and to the Divine Self in others and in doing so find harmony, life, love and joy within and without.

Moving into the Light

Moving into the Light:

A Life-Giving Reality

 

Here are some of my contemplations of late that are so powerful and life-giving I had to share them with you. This exposition is brief as I’m in the middle of a lot of transitions with my move, but if you are ready, it will resonate deeply and spark further instruction from the Spirit. If not, it serves as a future signpost as to where you are headed as you continue to seek in truth and spirit.

All is consciousness. There is only God’s consciousness.

Any thought that there is separation from his divine consciousness is a lie; for separation in divine love (the core attribute of the divine consciousness) is impossible. However, since all is consciousness, if the lie is believed, then the mind creates an illusionary reality around that lie. As a result, we experience and live the illusion instead of the truth. This is the manifestation of the “darkness”.

To dwell in the light is to see God’s reflection (the divine consciousness) in every pixel of reality; in all inanimate and animate objects, people and situations. When we perceive our reality in this way, then our reality reflects back to us the divine consciousness because it is flowing through our consciousness, thus we are manifesting it.

In this perception of light, we believe thus experience a reality that comforts, supports and helps us. We no longer disdain ourselves, others, or anything of our reality but begin to infuse every aspect of our reality with the attributes of the divine consciousness, thus it begins to reflect those qualities. We believe thus experience our reality and all it contains is for us and not against us. We believe thus experience the “I” in us is for us and not against us. Small alternations in our beliefs alter our experience, and our new experience enhances our belief; one feeds the other. The more we see our reality supporting us the more it does and this in turn increases our belief. By this cyclical pattern, our beliefs thus consciousness change and begin to grow in the light.

The initial step into the light is one of a living faith; a faith crafted in us by the Spirit of Truth. We believe what we don’t yet see. When this faith is matured, it begins the initial creation of a reality of light.

Like a seed, the darkness is our starting point. But when our season of growth comes, we begin to grow toward the light, then we grow in the light. The darkness is a necessary part of our journey, but our life is in the light.

In this dynamic, we begin to perceive the divine consciousness working in every detail. When the eye is full of light, so is our whole reality…

“If therefore your eye is good (clear) your whole body is full of light.” Matthew 6:22

In this shift of consciousness from darkness to light, our reality begins to bless us and we leave the desert and enter the fertile land where life grows.

Standing at the Gates

Standing at the Gates

 

A new thought, a new reality.
A divine thought, a divine reality.
In the realm of our thoughts lies the power of God.

To enter the Kingdom of Heaven (the divine consciousness), the soul relinquishes control of its reality to the Divine governance and trusts it implicitly, like a child.

In divine gratitude, the soul lets go of all and desires to witness the Creator’s workmanship in every aspect of soul, mind, spirit and body (our body is the reality,”our world”; which we each create through our consciousness). Sinking into this deep trust and letting go of all control thus fear, an eternal light begins to shine within. Subsequently, the mind detaches from the past and future, and rides the moments of the eternal present. In a state of eternal rest, the soul observes the workmanship of the Creator through its own consciousness.

The Creator’s sovereignty, which is grounded in divine love, is my greatest comfort. This sovereignty expresses itself through our consciousness; for ours is a drop of His. It’s through our consciousness of our divine-self that we know Him. It’s through this consciousness that we express Him. What can possibly concern us when we truly believe this is true?

We know our Creator through and by his divine attributes. Thus, these attributes that define his Spirit are my inspiration and the fulfillment of every hope in a perfection of an ever-expanding beauty and abundance. My heart rejoices in his bountiful, endless, and ever-expanding gift of his Spirit that flows through me as I desire to let go of all contrary to it, and desire to give this Spirit abundantly and without hesitation to All. All is You. You are All. 

These beautifully rich divine attributes are my soul’s daily meditation until all is revealed as one: I give and receive in endless joy and gratitude of my divine-self (the true part of my likeness that has lived in the shadows of my illusionary false-self that I thought was me), the divine Spirit (the Christ Spirit); a Spirit of infinite strength, power, vitality, divine love, honor, truth, sovereignty, loving kindness, gentleness, wisdom, equanimity, magnanimity, grace (mercy and forgiveness), humility, liberty (carefreeness of spirit), tranquility, present-mindedness (eternal present), oneness,  mindfulness, harmony and abundance. The place of God; the I in me.

This Spirit finds its home among the framework of truth the Spirit of Truth knits into the soul along its soulful journey of enlightenment and awakening. This temple of divine glory produces the Kingdom of Heaven on earth through the thoughts it manifests. The Creator lifts up the soul out of the deep humility he created within it and pours out His divine thoughts. Through this open gate, the Creator’s power is manifested in the soul and in the world.

Time Of Transition

Time of Transition

 

It’s been awhile since I wrote. I’m going through a multitude of transitions including a move across the country. Though I haven’t been writing, I’ve been in a constant learning mode (The spirit realm is never stagnant when we are attuned to it), and the transitions outwardly are accompanied by revelations within. God willing, it’s my desire to resume writing in the next months as all settles. But my silence in words isn’t a silence of thoughts toward you; I think of you all often.

I’m continuously learning the depth of how all is created by and through our consciousness. As we begin to perceive that the creative power of our Creator thus of ourselves resides in our consciousness and in the realm of our thoughts, new depths of understanding begin to open up to us. In this understanding, we learn to great extents and in great detail how our inner state creates our outer state. The Spirit of our divine self (the Spirit of Christ) and the thoughts that support it is our place of transformation. In this place, we exchange a nature and mind of separation for one of oneness.

Thus, our “battles” are never against anything outside of us (flesh and blood), but they are always in the realm of our thoughts. Thus, if we go inwardly we will find victory. When we keep our thoughts supportive of the divine spirit, then our reality manifests what we truly desire in the ways of peace, harmony and loving kindness. When our thoughts support the nature of our false-self, then our reality will bear its reflection. For example, complaining creates lack and sincere gratitude creates abundance. As we sincerely love others with the nature of the higher love of divinity, then we receive this love. How we are inwardly is what we experience outwardly. In these dynamics and many more like them, we see how significant the gift of the Spirit of Divinity (the Spirit of Christ) is to our lives and to those around us. By this Spirit, we are able to live in these truths and manifest a desired reality for all. It is by grace and faith that a sublime oneness with this Spirit is made manifest and this experiential oneness is the destined end to our journey through mortality.

I’ve been going through my own inner David (our divine-self and its spirit of faith) and Goliath (our false-self and its illusions) battles. I sense this is part of breaking free of the latter and moving into the substance of the former. Victory comes as the eye of our soul is filled with light (when we perceive all in truth). Thus, as we focus on the Spirit of divinity within our divine-self and reject all contrary thoughts, then the darkness of the false-self begins to fade. Though we go through the experience of the battle because all is consciousness, the “battle” is our Creator’s. Thus no true battle at all, yet in our transformation this is our experience. If others are facing this same challenge, be encouraged you are not alone, and the victory already exists. It resides in the eternal present. We are already one with our Creator and his perfect divine spirit. All thoughts of separation are part of the illusions cast by the self-determined consciousness that we make “real” by our belief in them.

There is an endless supply of strength and grace in our present moment, for our Creator’s divine love can’t be distant; even in a simulated state (dream-state) of consciousness. May we all learn to continuously draw upon this supply and be steadfast in putting off anything contrary to the beautiful attributes of divinity. May we know thus fully trust we are his workmanship and all is of his perfect orchestration according to his infinite wisdom.

Transcendent Creativity

Transcendent Creativity

 

As the soul transcends into a sublime oneness, its expressed creativity takes on a new energetic landscape.

Conduit of Creativity

In complete oneness, the soul functions as the conduit for the divine will to manifest the Creator’s divine attributes in creation. In this unity, the soul’s desires and the Creator’s will flow as one; as the Creator works through the soul’s desires. Thus, the soul’s role is to desire, and the Creator’s role is to do.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.  

John 15:7

Desire is the one soul element that can be purified while the soul is still a part of its false-self. (For example, the soul can desire to perfectly love though it doesn’t have the ability to do so in its current state of consciousness.) Desire resides beyond the soul and yet a part of it because it is a pre-creative state. Thus, along the soul’s journey through the wilderness, it’s the desires of the soul that are purified, which prepare the way for the divine-self. Because desires pave the way for what is created, it is also the aspect of soul where its awakening begins. (The Portal of Divine Desire)

When the soul’s desire comes into alignment with the Creator’s will, then the creative words of the soul begin to flow from the divine consciousness. Through these words the divine potentials of immortal harmony are manifested in creation; beginning with actualization of the divine-self and then abundant life created through that self. The soul asks and speaks according to its desire and the Creator works his will to fulfill the desire of the soul. As the desires of the soul grow more beautiful, so does the soul’s reality.

Because it’s the Creator’s role “to do”, after the soul offers up its deepest desires it enters into its most potently creative state, which is a profound rest that is cradled by living faith, divine trust, and belief.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 

Philippians 4:6 

In this state, the soul completely relinquishes the fulfillment of its desires to the Creator’s workmanship. This letting go is one of the most important aspects of the soul’s desire and its corresponding request. It’s an emotional atmosphere where the energetic powers of faith, trust and belief are potent and active. In this rest, these three creative qualities (faith, trust and belief) become heightened so that the energetic level of the soul finds a connection to the energy of divine creativity. This synergy enables the flow of the divine will through the soul and into its reality. The soul isn’t self-directing the means, manner, timing, and the specific outcomes along the way as it did in the self-determined consciousness, but instead it has become an outlet through which the divine will of divine love is accomplished. Meanwhile, the soul resides in the spontaneous flow of the present moment synched to the inner compass of the Spirit.

Requests in Grace

Transcendent or divine creativity requires a soul state of grace that is void of all retribution. As grace is a state of heart, so is retribution. One desires absolute healing and the other desires suffering.

Because the will of the Creator is abundant life for all, which is accomplished by grace flowing through the soul, in divine creativity the soul desires to give grace (alleviating all suffering) to all, always and in all circumstances. This desired intention of the soul enables  divine grace to flow into creation, which in turns enables any particular expression of divine creativity. Where the words of life from the Spirit cleanse and purify the soul (manifesting the Christ spirit within), the grace given between individual souls enables them to walk in that life. (Symbolized in Jesus washing the disciples feet.)

As I mentioned in previous posts, grace is the power in divine love that enables the soul to walk according to its divine longings. When the soul offers grace to another, then it’s received into its own soul. Through this dynamic, grace and love spread throughout creation and create the foundation for every creative act. Thus, the sincere desire of the soul entails this grace being a part of every circumstance, every heart, and every part of creation.

Requests in Retribution

When the soul desires divine grace, it desires nothing of retribution; which comes in many forms. If a soul desires retribution for another’s error (sin), it not only keeps grace from another’s life, but from its own. Thus, the divine creative energy can’t flow through this soul because the soul is counter to it. Thus, the Spirit of Truth instills truth in the soul that manifests a desire to give unconditional love.

“For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Matthew 7:2

Part of the truth that the soul receives from the Spirit that negates retribution is the awareness of the soul’s current condition. When the soul sees that it is all that it judges; it ceases to judge and instead has mercy. One common area where retribution resides is in the dynamic of a bully and a victim; a dynamic that comes in many shapes and forms. As all begins with thoughts, thinking self-deprecating thoughts and thinking deprecating thoughts of another creates “bullying”. Receiving these thoughts as truth from the self or another creates “being the victim”. The false-self is full of both. However, there is a deeper dynamic occuring: a victim is an inner bully, and a bully is an inner victim. And so it is with much of this reflective reality.

As long as the soul believes it is only one or the other, then an active contrary spirit resides hidden within the soul. Without the revealing of both within the soul, one stays active, which prohibits divine creativity. As the soul realizes it is both and “confesses and forsakes” both, it negates the separatist mentality that created a justified retribution. What is revealed can be healed. What is hidden festers.

And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:12

Once all is revealed, then the soul desires grace for all, and transcendent creativity can flow. These counterpart dynamics are why the Spirit creates a humble atmosphere in a seeking soul. In humility, the soul is willing and able to see itself in the dynamics of its life – and learn. And in learning, its desires shift to be in accordance with the divine will.

The transformative path of the soul removes all retribution from the soul so that divine grace can flow and cover all. Without the soul “washing the feet” of those around it in grace, then grace would be withheld from creation. We are abundantly covered in grace from within, and as we desire to give it, we find that something beautiful and new begins to be created upon the landscape of the earth.

“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

John 13:14

The Regenerating Life

The Regenerating Life

 

Out of the depths, the Oneness that always was, encounters the mind of the soul.

Hidden beneath the thick vapor of the self-directed mind, the oneness shared between the soul and its Creator resides as the divine-self. As this Oneness begins to surface in the mind of the soul, the mirage of the false-self begins to fade and the soul awakens to a divinely directed life. As the divine consciousness becomes the soul’s conscience experience, the real that always was manifests.

The Creator expresses himself in Creation through the soul that is formed to be a conduit of his Spirit. Thus, the soul knows and experiences him through its divine-self and the projected reality this self creates. The Creator is the “I” of the soul. There is no separation between the soul’s existence and his eternal life, for without him there is no soul.

Awakening to the Divine-Self Within

As the soul lets go of its self-will, its divine-self rises to the surface from the depths where it remained hidden beneath the drama and noise of the false-self. In this awakening, the soul is renewed bit by bit as it throws off every self-directed thought as untrue. These false thoughts fall away like empty shells as they’ve been stripped of all their power held by belief and emotion. All the elements of the soul’s reality once created by these thoughts; its fabricated personality, contrived appearances, and its reality cloaked with the likeness of decay and death, begin to fade.

Thought is the mental substance of the consciousness. When the soul’s consciousness begins to shift from the self-determined consciousness to the divine, it experiences a change in its thoughts. Slowly the thought matter alters from coming from the former consciousness to coming from the latter.

As the soul begins to awaken to its divine-self, it realizes this self was always its true essence; and the rest was imagination. With this awareness, the soul perceives it’s an extension of the Creator and always has been; any separation was an illusion.

During this transitory period, the soul ceases to focus on outward appearances that were constructed by the false-self, for they are passing away. Instead the soul centers on and operates from the internal divine frameworks of truth that begin to renew its mind with transformative grace, which in time transforms its reality into an expressively divine one.

The Elixir of Regeneration

The energetic substance of the divine-self is divine love. The unconditional and regenerating aspect of this love is grace. As the divine-self and the Creator are totally one; the soul is his expressive medium into creation. Because abundant divine grace is the heart of the Creator, the divine-self desires to extend this grace to all as well. As the soul gives divine grace, it receives it from the Source; like a fountainhead. In this outpouring, the soul’s heart is transformed into an open gate of the Creator’s unconditional love.

Bound to the illusion of the false-self, the soul abided in the ramifications (compensation or judgment) of its erroneous thinking. Grace manifests the right inherent in every wrong, thus judgment (penalty for error) is swallowed up in divine love. As the soul desires to give the substance of grace to all others, it receives grace and this grace transitions every other mental element (the content of its consciousness) into a divine element. Grace covers all and brings the bounty of goodness out of everything. In the face of grace, no error matters because grace is all-consuming. It’s the elixir of healing, renewal and regeneration.

The rising of the divine-self is the rising of the Christ spirit within the soul; a spirit of abundant divine grace. All that will be is present in the now. The Spirit is in the present in all omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience. It can’t be less than what it is. Thus, the soul awakens to what always was. As the soul gives thus receives grace, it rises to the Christ Spirit within; who was always within its midst.

Absolution

When the soul begins to perceive the Kingdom of God (divine consciousness) within, the soul identifies the absolute sovereignty of the Creator that was, is and always will be. He was always “in charge”, and the self-directed will that he gave the soul to operate in was an offshoot of his own. Thus, all that the soul created through its self-will was within his divine providence.

Everything that occurred during the soul’s journey through the wilderness of the false-self was meaningful and within the governance of the Creator’s perfect orchestration, thus ultimately the Creator’s responsibility. In this profound understanding into the depths of divine love, the soul experiences a complete liberation from the ramifications of all error. The soul fully relinquishes to the Creator all responsibility that it took upon itself which created endless cycles of inferiority, shame, guilt, and fear. At this release, these four core drivers of the false-self are systematically absolved.

A Divine Will

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.”

John 15:7-9

The will of the Creator that was once hidden beneath the vapor of the self-will rises to the top so that the prayer of the Christ, who is made manifest in the divine-self, is fulfilled; “Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven”.

Because the Creator’s will sovereignly governs the divine-self, as the divine-self asserts itself over the false-self, so does the Creator’s will over the self-will.

The Creator is beyond the soul and yet fully one with it as the divine-self. The soul is his body so that all he does is done through the soul in thought, belief, word and deed. Thus for grace to flow or any other character of the Creator, it must flow through the soul. This means the soul comes to desire the abundance of his divine attributes and nothing self-contrived.

Thus, the “Kingdom of God” (the divine consciousness) comes through the soul; again in thought, belief, word and deed. Once the soul forsakes the false-self thus all its strength found in its self-will, then the divine-self begins to rise and shine to bring forth the Kingdom.

As the Kingdom comes, the divine will is no longer a passive component but an active one to the consciousness of the soul. In this exchange of will-power, the soul is no longer a slave to the self-will, but free by the governance of the divine will.

In this flip, all is turned upside down and inside out as all is made wholly divine through grace. It’s a rise from weakness to true power. As the soul abides in the divine consciousness, divine truths manifest through the risen divine-self. The beauty and bounty of the divine attributes expressed through those truths bloom up in and around the soul casting a reflection of the Creator’s love. Where the soul came to know its unconquerable weaknesses; with this shift of wills, it operates by the one and true power found in divine love. The soul’s hunger and thirst to perfectly love that caused it to give up all for love is finally fulfilled with each moment growing more and more glorious.

This victory already exists in this present moment; as all was finished from the beginning. As the soul awakens to the truth of this victory (faith) found in the depths of its divine self (the manifestation of the internal Christ); the faith begins to manifest the victory through the grace inherent in the Christ.
