Intermingling Souls &
The Soul’s Expressive Elements
(Part 7: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)
The quintessence of Jesus’ teachings has withstood the vicissitudes of time and reveal how we become a divine human soul, as he is. Listening throughout the ages, we hear enlightened souls echoing in parts and pieces similitudes of his words regarding this divine transformation.
The word pictures Jesus Christ painted; the narrow path, the narrow gate, the mustard seed, new birth, the two commandments, the washing of the word, I am the way, truth and life, the truth sanctifies, and many more, when interlaced provide us with enigmatic counsel to the way into our Father’s bosom, thus oneness with him. The Spirit of Truth, who flows from the Father, details and explains these truths through our experiences, quite meditations and progressive soul journey. It’s by following the truths these word pictures portray and the instructions of the Spirit of Truth that our soul is prepared and transformed to receive and give divine love, thus to be united to the Father. In this joining, we ascend to immortality.
Because Jesus’ soul is an extension of the Father’s divinity, it’s through a brotherly oneness with his soul, whether directly or through one connected to him, that we are connected to the Father and dwell together as one within the divine consciousness. In this synergistic connection, one soul is joined to the other and oneness is established. We step into “the kingdom of God” and the Kingdom moves into us.
Being of divine love, Jesus is readily available to connect with us (like an open door); however, our soul has to be prepared to receive and give this kind of love. To be intermingled at this depth with divine love means we give divine love. Because of our corrupted soul state, we’re called to embark upon a transformative journey to accomplish this union, like a bride preparing to marry her groom. We are “called” because love is always a choice. We can experience divine love externally, but for it to be a part of us so that it enters our soul and flows through us, we have to be a soul that can receive and give this love.
Jesus Christ brought to us the incredible potential to be divine love, and then he taught us how to be transformed that we may actualize this potential and become a divine human soul.
Intermingling of Souls
Being a part of a collective human soul, we can connect to specific souls on a variety of levels. To connect to Jesus, a pure soul, in a oneness so that he is in us and we in him, thus we are a part of the Father, is the deepest of connections that is fashioned in and by love.
In sincere love, our souls can intermingle in such a way that creates an inseparable bond. A sincere love contains only pure desires and intentions, though unlike divine love, its expressions aren’t yet perfect. But it’s a step along the journey prior to divine love. This love always seeks unity and unity is created when this love is given and received by both parties. It forms an unbreakable bond that even death can’t sever. Through my beloved brother John, I understood how two souls fashioned in this way remain linked across dimensions, and how impactful this cross-dimensional bond can be.
Further, for this type of intermingling of souls we must personally know the other person; not an image of them like a movie star, not abstractly like an ideal spouse, or not in theory like how we might conceptualize them to be. We know them personally and intimately like we would in a marriage or a close friendship. Finally, when this bond is established, we care about what and whom they care about. It’s through these types of soul connections that divine love spreads soul to soul.
Because our soul is bound by the self-determined consciousness, we go through a transformation that enables us to unite to the divine consciousness of our Father. It’s a process of shedding one consciousness and obtaining another, that manifests a new soul, a divine soul. And because we are a living entity with individuality, the transformation our soul undergoes is a metamorphosis like a worm to a butterfly.
The detachment of our soul from a self-determined consciousness (death to self) is done while we are alive or we would cease to exist and loose all individuality. To continue to live as a soul, an alternate framework of soul has to be fashioned while the old framework slowly fades. The new is built along with the old, and when the new is ready the old is totally removed, like the butterfly analogy. Another example, as our soul is compared to a temple, is of a church that rebuilt their sanctuary this way. They built the new sanctuary around the old one and when the new one was ready, they tore the old one down. This way they could continue on with their services. Our soul goes through a similar process. A new soul is built alongside our old soul so we maintain our individuality, yet become a new creation, a new soul. Since soul consists of the construct of truths we hold, this process entails building a new framework of truth within us and when the fullness of our time comes, then the old one is fully removed.
The soul experience of this imperfect mortality serves many purposes. However, we aren’t intended to stay in this soul condition as Jesus so adamantly teaches. We are to seek to become a new creation rising up out of the ashes of our self-driven soul, ashes being a key word.
Soul’s Expressive Elements
The soul is beautifully complex and yet simple. Here is one perspective of an aspect of the soul that I’m learning according to my purposes. The soul is comprised of seven expressive elements. These elements create a sensory interpretation of the truths we hold. The output is our emanating spirit or our individualized energetic formation (aura). The interworking of all these elements manifests our consciousness. A divine soul projects the fulfilled promise of immortality represented by the energetic vibration of the seven colors of the rainbow (ROYGBIV).
The seven expressive elements of our soul:
- Judgment. Our evaluative capacity to make a decision.
- Time. Our perceptual location in the time and space dimension.
- Emotions. Our affective expression of our assimilated truths.
- Desire. Our creative intention or response to our current awareness.
- Words. Our cognitive expression of our assimilate truths.
- Perception. Our level of comprehension based on level of awareness.
- Will. Our internal combustion to create.
Each element is integrated and affects the others. These seven elements are self-driven or divinely driven. We begin our soul journey with them self-driven and darkened. When we embark upon the path of metamorphosis, they become divinely driven as they are lit by the eternal fire.
These seven elements fuse together to create our spirit. Thus, our spirit can be of the dark or of the light. Our spirit’s energy resides upon a continuum of love. The highest form of love is divine love, eternal light. The lowest form of love is the absence of love, which wears the multifaceted visage of fear, outer darkness. Where we reside upon this continuum depends upon the truths we possess and our ability to express them. The less truth, the less love (more fear). The more truth, the more love. Our journey is one of moving out of the dark and into the eternal light. We regenerate in soul, spirit and body from the inside out and the metamorphosis begins with the development of divine desire along the narrow path.
