In a stillness of mind and quietness of spirit, we enter the inner chamber of our soul.
This inner place is one of our greatest discoveries of our mortal lives because it’s where we encounter the light of our Source and Center that guides us into himself.
The Sacred Inner Chamber
The inner chamber of our soul is the place that sits on the edge of our personal reality and the realm of unlimited divine potentials, the realm of our Creator. It’s the center and beginning of our soul. It’s the place before creation; creation of any thought, emotion, desire, feeling, word, movement or action. Thus, it’s a sacred space of innocence and purity.
If we imagine our soul as a temple, this place is the innermost part, the most holy and sacred portion of our being. Because it’s a place before anything we create, it’s untainted by error. In this purity, we are able to encounter the sacred light of our Creator.
Our temporary self-directed consciousness prohibits an open door connection to this sacred light. Yet, though we can’t connect in substance, we can connect through our spirit. It’s like speaking through a door, versus face to face. The substance of the light is the power of divine love and the governance of the divine consciousness. Thus in this self-directed state, we experience the love through the medium of faith versus substance, and the divine consciousness in concept versus actuality. But this self-directed experience is essential in preparing us for receiving the substance. Life comes through a darkened womb under a veil of flesh before entering the light and coming face to face.
It’s through this inner space the Spirit of Truth speaks to us from the divine realm beyond us. His voice echoes throughout our being calling attention to himself to draw us into his truth that he may lead and guide us. It’s here in our inner chamber where his spirit fashions us to be the temple of his divine consciousness. It’s where we are closest to absolute truth and divine love.
As a spiritual practice, we can engage in mindful meditations that serve to connect us to this inner chamber. In stilling our mind and quieting our spirit, we put aside all the distractions and attune our inner perceptions to this inner sanctuary. With pure intentions of heart and mind, and a willingness to listen and grow in the awareness of truth and love, we find entrance into this sacred place.
In this space we sit as an observer; a place beyond and before our thoughts, emotions, and all we manifest. We offer up what is on our minds, what is consuming our thoughts, what we are obsessing about, or what is happening in our reality. We step back and take the place of an observer and open ourselves up to to learn what we are intended to about divine love from these happenings. From this vantage point, we witness the rest of our soul thus life from a higher perspective that enables us to gain insight into our personal stories. Because of this lucid perspective, wisdom finds an entrance into our awareness so that it can instruct and enlighten our path. We attune our inner ear and sit as a student to the Spirit of Truth, and he instructs us about the experiences of our lives in order to illuminate us in the ways of divine truth and love.
When we begin our mindful meditations, it takes practice in quieting our minds from the noisy hubbub of life; the more drama and complexity the more noise. Thus, why those on the path of enlightenment choose a life of simplicity. It helps them to reside in this place of enlightenment. It takes time to discern the noise from the Voice of Truth. It’s like learning a new language, a language of the Spirit. So we are required to be patient and dedicated.
Once we find an inner stillness, we can begin to attune to the truth seeping into our awareness. The truth comes like a little light in our darkness. It reveals the nature of harmony, life, love, and truth for our soul, the collective human soul, and all of creation. As we continue our daily meditations, our discernment between the truth and the noise grows increasingly more distinct. In my personal practice, writing is a great facilitator to my inner ear. Sometimes the reflections come through my mind to the paper. Sometimes it’s as if the words flow right from the Spirit of Truth through my pen and I learn and listen as I write. Sometimes, I just listen and record later.
As we diligently cultivate entering into this inner chamber, our ability to hear the truth enhances. The trickles of truth slowly build a new foundation in our soul that enables us to receive more truth. Truth builds. Thus, we grow in awareness as we receive the truth in faith bit by bit.
The droplets entering into our awareness continue to expand until they become a thriving stream. At this point, we find ourselves stopping in this inner sanctuary throughout the day. This frequent engagement is an indication that our lives are transitioning from pivoting around something outside of us, (job, family, spouse, children, pain, parents, self-worth, etc.) to our true center, the place of engagement with our Source and Center. When this becomes our center, the divine light has found a continuous pathway through the spirit into our present awareness. Our thoughts begin to shift according to our new center and we fully engage the journey of enlightenment. Finally, when we transition from growing in awareness from this light to becoming the light, we’ve obtained oneness.
Awareness is a continual expansion of truth and divine love that builds new constructs of belief and thought. These new beliefs and thoughts provide the framework for the inflow of the divine consciousness. It’s the building of our inner temple to receive the spirit of divinity. The occurrence of this inflow happens at the discretion of our Creator, because his consciousness will transform the entire human soul as one, for we are all connected. Until this day of our awakening, we grow in awareness to obtain a divine desire for this light, to make the choice to receive this divine consciousness in love and totality, and to develop a framework of constructs of truth within our soul that his divine consciousness can manifest through.
Therefore, the purpose of of this part of the journey isn’t to self-perfect, because a self-directed consciousness isn’t constructed to, but to grow in awareness of absolute truth and divine love that allows us to connect to the divine consciousness that perfects us. However, the awareness itself does bring about various changes in us.
In the day of awakening, when we transform into a divine soul, our inner chamber is filled with the substance of the light; the governing divine consciousness of divine love. Instead of growing in awareness of the light, we become the light. Our gained understanding of the nature of divine love and our desire to give it to all without reservation is the carrier of this light through our soul and into our reality, which the light regenerates in immortal harmony. When we are one with this light, every aspect of our soul is consumed by it, and all our energetic vibrations resonate according to divine love. Thus, the light governs every aspect of our experiential reality from our soul out to the ends of creation and we are one with the Source and Center, our Creator.
