Thy Light Has Come
The Journey of a Soul of the Internal Light
(Part 12: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)
The chord is cut. Thy light has come.
No longer is the soul bound to the shadows of darkness, but has entered the light of day.
Possessing the divine consciousness as well as being a part of the collective human soul, Jesus Christ, brought the potential for us to be connected to the divine consciousness. And, as he taught, we must be “born again” to become a part of this consciousness (the Kingdom of God).
For our soul to be divine, we embark upon a soul journey to prepare our soul for a oneness with the divine consciousness. There are many analogies that speak to this transition that all reveal different aspects of our journey. The analogies, whether of a marriage, a metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly, or a seed maturing into a tree, build our awareness of the journey our soul goes through, thus guiding us on the paths we are called to traverse. One illustration full of symbolism is the birth of a child, thus Jesus’ reference to it. It’s a deep and rich analogy intended to guide us on the path to immortality.
Our reality and our Creator’s reality are co-existing in a simulated state of separation. As we experience a self-determined existence, His spirit of love hovers over us as a loving Father. Thus, the erratic self-will resides within perfect cause. Everything is working for our highest good, for our Father loves us all.
The preparatory process we go through to become a divine soul is much like an embryo growing in a womb. Our divine soul grows in a spiritual womb that resides in a hidden and holy place untouched by the self-directed consciousness. This place lays dormant within us until we are connected to (fertilized by) our Father’s divine love through a sincere longing for this love. This desire compels us to connect through our spirit to his spirit. It’s through the spirit because his dimension lies just beyond this one so it’s only through the spirit that we can connect to him.
Like an umbilical chord, through this spirit connection to the divine consciousness, we gain the nourishment required for our divine self to start to form. In this connection, the mishaps of our self-directed consciousness start serving our highest good through the lessons and experiences it presents us. Through our increasing awareness, absolute truth and divine love become known in this sacred place in our soul, and a likeness of a divine soul begins to grow within. It’s within this holy place that the divine consciousness will flow into and regenerate our reality.
As these understandings of divine truth and love flow from the spirit realm, they structure the narrow way that becomes the long and winding road to freedom.
Along this narrow path of purifying truth, a soul element, which is beyond our soul yet can be a part of our soul becomes knit into our soul; the soul element of divine desire. Desire is the one aspect of our being that can be purified while we are still separate in a self-made soul, because desire exists beyond us, as well as being a part of us.
The narrow path is an arduous and euphoric journey of the Spirit of Truth teaching, instructing, prompting, impressing, convicting, encouraging, and training our soul in the ways of truth and divine love as the soul element of divine desire takes form. This element enables us to connect to the divine consciousness; thus no more separation, no more “death”. As I’ve mentioned, desire is what our soul wants to create; reactively or intentionally. Divine desire is a desire for only what is divine, thus of God’s desires for us as his creation. All contrary desires fade away as this element of soul is created. (This phase is symbolized in the number 40; days, weeks, years, time of trial and preparation)
When we gain the fullness of the soul element of divine desire, we come to “full term”. We are ready to leave the watery darkness and enter into the reality of light because through the creative element of divine desire we receive the divine consciousness that transforms and governs the remaining soul elements.
As we come full term, we begin our journey through the birth canal, which is symbolic of pushing through this reality’s atmosphere of separation. It’s tumultuous, trying, tiring and painful, as our previous reality governed by our self-driven consciousness is seen without blinders and is stripped away; which feels like a slow death. We are pressed and squeezed, constricted and suffocating, as the elements of our soul entrapped by the self-made will begin to break away as we move into our divine self. As we pass through the atmosphere we witness the layers of depravity that we created, our soul swells and breaks, as we continue to let go of all that we have been, until only a shell of the false self remains. It’s an unsettled and uprooted place of being caught between two realities, where we aren’t a part of this reality or the next. (Symbolic of the number 5; 5 layers of atmosphere)
As we pass over the infinite chasm between the shadow and the real, our frailty and dependence upon the love of our Father reaches its climax. We come to a point where all our hope and faith resides upon the One who taught us throughout the journey, the beloved Spirit of Truth, and nothing of what we see, because all we see is falling away as the new comes forth. Only in this pure faith crafted in us by the Spirit of Truth do we have the wings to pass over this chasm.
Nearing the doorway of the veil of flesh, we see a glimmer of light. It’s in this doorway that we encounter Jesus’ outreaching divine love that gives us entry into the Father’s bosom.
Once we pass through the doorway, the spiritual chord is cut. It’s the chord that connects our soul to our self-determined consciousness, thus it’s the root of this consciousness. It’s what keeps us waking up day after day in this dream-state (womb-state); whether in this life or in the next. When it’s cut, the dream is over. It’s similar to the umbilical chord being cut at our physical birth. We no longer wake up in the womb, are fed in the womb, or attached to the womb. We no longer abide in darkness or grow in darkness. We are released into the world of light to continue our growth in its blissful radiance.
As the divine consciousness enters our soul, its fire-like nature severs the old root of our fabricated self and establishes itself as the new root bringing to life our divine self. This severance is a “death” or end to our false fabricated self, and it is life to our true divine self. After the severance during a transitory period, the false self fades away as an illusionary dream, and our true self awakens as a dawning day. (Symbolic of the number of 3; resurrection period) We shine ever brighter as the divine seven elements of the kaleidoscopic rainbow soul of divinity are manifested. It’s a resurrection of our divine soul coming forth from the holy place it’s been crafted in as it’s infused with the divine consciousness. Its divine energy regenerates our reality from the shadow to the real, from the dark to the light. In this, our reflective reality of the self-determined consciousness diminishes as a new reflection of a divine soul begins to shine. It’s our end and our beginning. It’s the awakening out of the dream-state and into the reality of our Father’s divine love.
