Blossoming of Truth

Blossoming of Truth

Within A Soul

 

 

 

A blossom opens with mathematical precision, and so does truth within our soul, which in turn causes our soul to blossom. Both are beautiful reflections of our Creator’s handiwork.

Truth is truth, but how truths become a part of our particular soul is an individual process, like each unique blossom that opens in its perfect timing, manner, and reflection. Like a blossom, the blooming process of truth isn’t random, but flows in calculated perfection that testifies to the work of the Spirit of Truth and Love within us.

Because truth is love’s counterpart, it can only be assimilated to our soul when our experiences teach us about love. If a “truth” doesn’t move us closer to love in some way, it isn’t truth. When we learn this “secret” of truth, then we realize everything in our reality is there to teach us in some way … about love.

Words that are understood, though significantly important and powerful, are only a reflection of what a soul has experienced. Without the experience, words are empty and fleeting to our soul, thus we are unable to “grasp” them. This is especially true with truths of the spirit that lie beneath their physical reflections. But with the correlating experiences, words, whether ours or another’s, become expressions of our soul that solidify our learning and growth, and enable us to share our growth with others.

As different as we are in our individuality that is sown from the interworking of our heritage, culture, and experiences, so too is our personal inner blossoming of truth. Though truth is constructed in perfection for each one of us, how that precision manifests varies for each one of us. Thus, how we articulate what we learn varies. Different symbols and representations of truth mean different things to different people. The same word and connections between words hold different meanings to different people. The words that we share mean one thing to us and something else to the listener. It’s incredible to see the different angles of truth that can come from a written or spoken statement.

One truth can be expressed and taught in a multitude of ways. One truth can hold many levels and connections to other truths that enhances its understanding. But when we gain a truth, then we are able to “perceive it” in the articulations of others, though their experience of learning and how they articulate it varies from ours.

Though our experiences and how we speak of truths can differ, the spirit of unity works among us in amazing ways. As everything teaches us in our reality, so do another’s words .. but in accordance to our experiences. Thus, we don’t necessary gain what they intended to share by communicating. When we are open, we gain what is needed for us at our particular level of development. In being open to learning, we receive what the Spirit of Truth gives to us through another’s words knowing it may be different than what the communicator received and was trying to express. The amount of overlap of understanding with others varies greatly. We need not judge or compare our blooming process with theirs for it will always differ to varying degrees, but we only need to receive with thanksgiving what was intended for us and received by others.

When we are open to learn, we receive what we need when we need it in a precision that creates a solid foundation of expanding truth, thus love, upon which our souls continue to mature.

In the varying expressions of truth, we see the perfection of the unifying nature of love. Love, the result of truths sown in a soul, is what joins us. Though our reception and articulation of truth varies, the love it produces unifies.

Truth serves love. If we put how we learn or how we express our truth above love, then we’ve forfeited truth and love.

Losing Gravity

Losing Gravity

Apple tree flowers in spring

When we start to be governed by above (which is from within), the elements of this world start to lose their pull upon us. In this, our soul evolves to a higher form that is able to give and receive a purer and transcendent love.

No more do the illusions of the world direct our soul. But divine love’s breath of life blowing from within from a higher realm where love reigns. Our soul finds new expressions as it defies the gravity of the world.

With the binding ties loosed, our soul exudes truer expressions of love that quell fear, judgment, shame, lack, guilt, pride, defenses, insignificance, unworthiness and every other illusion of a finite and darkened mind.

Divine love sets us free from elements of the earthen realm that once bound us to a limited travailing existence. It lifts us up to places we’ve never been and reestablishes us as new creations that in turn makes all things new.

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.
