Drawn into the Light
Practicing the truth brings us to a higher spiritual frequency, which is the ability to give and receive divine love. 1 John 1:6-7 When we obtain a certain frequency, we are a prepared soul to receive the fullness of God according to the measure intended for our created being. Abiding in the fullness of God is eternally abiding in divine love. It is a phenomenon that we witnessed in Christ Jesus, a likeness we will one day reflect as we are drawn into the light.
This spirit ascension begins with seeking the truth from the spirit of perfection, God. In a world of lies, we must seek the truth, for lies blind us to the truth. But once we start to experience its transcendence power, we become drawn to it as a moth to a light. Even a flicker in our life can be impactful, it can set us on a course of a sojourner ever reaching for a higher reality, one in which we function in accordance to the mind of God, and no longer the mind of mankind.
If we don’t or cease practicing the truth, we can’t ascend, for ascension comes with a transformation of our mind by the words of the Divine spoken as an inner counselor, like words coming from a pure conscience. New thoughts create new perspectives, and new perspectives create new actions coming out a point of perfection, His light, within us. It all starts with words of truth, which bring understanding, which recreates us. His Truth lifts us above the influences of the lower realm, where the primal mind of mankind dwells. Thus, our creative powers grow ever more in alignment with the divine nature of God, and in this, beautiful present moments manifest in our lives.
Therefore, to move into a higher frequency is a combination of letting go of unrighteousness and practicing truth. We let go of those things that anchor us to a lower mind (mind of rebellion), like lusts, addictions, and cares of the world as defined by mankind’s wisdom and ways. Instead, we practice in all sincerity (void of hypocrisy, backbiting, judging) divine love, doing the right thing, humility, gentleness, meekness, kindness, trust in God, mercy, forgiveness, God’s wisdom, honor, and purity, in our lives and to those around us. We pursue what makes peace, harmony and unity with the spirit of God, not strife and separation. To learn each of these traits is a continual experiential apprenticeship under the Spirit of Truth. It is a journey requiring diligence, steadfastness, patience, and perseverance. Yet, in this back and forth of letting go and practicing truth, our minds/spirits wind upward as an ascending staircase away from being governed by the realm of the mind of mankind, thus serving its base ways, to a higher realm of the spirit of God.
God’s spirit is very powerful, yet very gentle. If we are doing what is contrary to His spirit, it keeps a insurmountable gap between Him and us, though His spirit is always close at hand. 1 Peter 3:12 Our acts of rebellion easily distance us from abiding in the spirit of truth, thus an aspect of the gentleness of His Spirit. The moment we desire to practice truth in all sincerity, His spirit is receptive to our desire to connect. Thus, we have to draw near to Him, then He will to us. Zech 1:3 We draw near by honestly desiring to live in accordance to His righteousness and truth, which is reflected in our choices for righteousness. If we want to meet with Him, we must be willing to travel on His paths, and do so.
At the beginning of our journey, we aren’t even sure where the light is, because we are in total darkness in our minds. The darkness comes from all the lies we think are true. We are seeking around trying to find truth, the ways of God, and not fully aware of what to expect. And as our expectations can be misleading, we have to set them aside and be open to anyway He chooses to reveal Himself to us. But for those seeking, God’s spirit will start to pull them gently toward Himself by words of truth spoken to their soul. His words become like a little light ever increasing, like a match, to a candle, to a flashlight, and so on. His words spoken to our spirits, that can be hard to discern in our blindness, help us to see the next step to take to be in alignment to His will and nature. We walk step by step and rarely leaps and bounds, for understanding is built layer upon layer. This path can be trying at times when it is hard to see what is His will in our present circumstance, but if we continue to seek, He will build the constructs of our mind to “see” the understanding we need. If we desire to know His will for a situation, we will know as we are able to receive, and when we need to know it. So focus on what you are learning today, for it will lead to tomorrow’s answers.
As we practice the truth, then our light expands because in our current understanding (light) we are able to receive more transformative understanding. Our spiritual evolution continues as long as we continue to seek and practice what we learn. Over time, our mind is networked with His understanding, thus we are transformed in our inner life and our outside reality to reflect His divine nature.
For those drawn into the light, they are ever growing in a life of righteousness and divine love. These are those truly of God. The Overseer of their soul, who they continually sought and clung to, establishes a foundation of thanksgiving, honor, glory, wisdom, power, might and blessing in their lives. Upon this foundation the presence of God resides, His very temple, the soul of a transcended created being of His workmanship.
If we want God to draw near to us, we need to draw near to the truth of divine love by seeking it, practicing it, and living by it. This is how we meet God, and start to “see” Him.
