The past 14 years, to the day, I’ve been Stirring the Deep; seeking the true eternal light. During the last seven years, I’ve shared some of the teachings and instructions from the Spirit of Truth, as I received them.
This last series; Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality (categorized under Mysteries Revealed), shares the quintessential understandings of my soul journey from the darkness into the eternal light. The journey from the false fabricated self to the true divine self, from the simulated to the real; from the dark womb to the light of day, from the self-directed consciousness to the divine consciousness; from false images of our Creator to a personal perspective through an intimate engagement.
Where my soul journey will go now, only God knows. I feel I’m stepping into a new frontier of the soul. Through a continual increasing awareness, the perception of my reality is altering ever so slightly. I sit as an observer of my soul watching and listening, while I follow a leading beyond me yet within me. In this changing season, my blog is gaining a new reflection, symbolic of what I’m experiencing; an increasing light among the shadows.
Along with this new frontier, I’ve noticed a change in my perception of time in relation to my soul’s development. It is becoming real-time so that the journey is more present oriented. It’s feels like a transition from a past and future mindset to a present mindset.
The past resides as an instructional memory and the future as something impossible to comprehend as a force much higher than my being is constructing it. Every thought seems to create the next reflection, as the time lapse of the unreal is dissipating.
In this state of mind, the soul manifests its growth in real-time instead of learning by reflecting on past events, and hoping it can act according to what it has learned in the future, which it wasn’t able to fully do. The past and future mindset encases the soul like a shell and keeps it from residing in the present moment; the real. As, this shell cracks, also representing the false self, the present becomes the soul’s dwelling place. It is no longer like a seed bound in a shell with hopes of growth, but diligently matures like a plant slowly and steadily rising out of the earth.
Journal Reflections of Living in the Light
The shadows of the mind fade as a dim light breaks forth. The heart lightens at the awakening rays. The soul swells with the realization that divine love has always enfolded it; but it was unknown by a mind cast in the shadows of death; shadows that clouded its perspective to believe otherwise. In this reception of love, it senses it can begin to truly love, without condition.
The soul expands with the substance of its desires, hopes, and prayers as its oneness with the Creator is actualized and realized; which becomes one in the same act. Each cell tingles as it responds to the gentle inflow of the loving light. They take on new formations; beautiful crystalline shapes revealing the magnificence of their Creator. Joy dances across the lips. Eyes twinkle with eternal light. Divine love tenderly enraptures the heart. All the Creator possesses is established in oneness with the soul prepared as His dwelling place.
The soul begins to stand tall in the outpouring of the Creator’s mercies and grace that lift it out of its sleep state and into a higher echelon of being. Immortal harmony takes up its governance. The eternal light of the highest good takes over the once darkened perceptions, thoughts, emotions, words, expressions and actions. The soul transcends the mortal mind and steps upon the threshold of immortality. As the soul mind meticulously infuses with light, the soul is set free. Every soul element flows in unison with divinity and creates a melodic harmony of inner peace that resonates throughout the soul. The soul is one, united to the One, in oneness. Out of the pit of darkness it arises as the chords of death break away, and new roots of eternal life take their place.
The soul chose to love. Love responded.

Past, future, present. All to do with time. We must learn to live in the eternal…present…for in reality time ceases when we realize we are living in the eternal. While many think we are humans having a spiritual experience, in reality we are the same spiritual beings we come to earth with and while here we are spirit having a human experience. We move without interruption through our alloted “time”, our spirit being blinded for awhile to learn discipline, be corrected and become be obedient to the will of our Father. In reality we never stepped out of eternal life, we were just put on a change of course. God has a plan to give us more than we had before coming to this journey and we must learn obedience in order to be responsible for the “greater” gift of life. The scriptures say God is creating a “new” creation man. To be given a new resurrected body that our spirit can also inhabit we must be conditioned and that is the purpose of suffering this valley of the shadow of death experience.
So, yes we will recognize there is nothing but the now as it is in the eternal..for we should not be anxious about the things of tomorrow for God will bring what is needed to each of us as He wishes. If we live in the now we live in peace for there really is no tomorrow…spiritually speaking.
Living life simply is living life without trying to figure out the future for we don’t know what we shall be but we know we will be like Him when we are “resurrected” unto life…in the present tense.
Love your article, it is simple, direct and without ego, which is what has always kept me visiting. When we learn to share and speak as you have learned to do, without a lot of legality, we have learned to speak in the present without having to “prove” anything.

Hi Sonny, as we grow along our journey, we begin to let go of trying to control everything as we desire God’s perfection and will to be governing us versus what is in accordance with our limited understanding and expectations. Yet, he instills his desires in us and leads us by those desires. There is a freedom and uncertainty in this … but when we come to this place of letting go we know it is where we are meant to be, for its all part of our learning and growth. And this goes along with your comment about responsibility. When we let go to flow in his will instead of forcing our own, we become more responsible with what we’ve been given. In the past months I’ve truly come to know that you don’t know what the future holds and yet at the same time it is always growing out of this present moment.

And as you mention about “our uncertainty” it is over powered by our developed faith and trust in knowing and believing without a doubt that our Father will “with certainty” cancel out our “uncertainty.” There is deep down sub conscious knowing that regardless of our weaknesses, if we remain steadfast we will be made whole. It is His promise for all people so when we realize, as you say, it is for all, it leaves little room for self elevation in our own eyes or in the eyes of another. Truth can only bring a humble attitude toward any and all things. This is because truth levels the playing field for everyone, and not just for some. When we lovingly and truthfully realize all means “all”, we begin to realize we can never again condemn another and place them in a different love than that we ourselves want and expect. We will never love in any meaningful way regardless of how many times we say the word as long as we would see another deprived of God’s love and have an attitude that another will never gain or deserve His love. God makes it very clear that:
. “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive
But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.”
These are very truthful and revealing verses in the bible and although they are self explanatory there are those who will say all does not mean all but all means only some. Look at every instance of “all” in the above verses and the only one who is excepted is God Himself.
When we understand that God will not leave not one out of His plan for life without end , it is only then can we love as one as we should. All other views are as fragmented and divisive as our inability see all without prejudiced as not entitled as we ourselves are.
When we let go, we know and trust that we will be delivered because of the promise and it is not anything good or evil we have done. Just as Jacob and Esau’s end was secure before being yet born so will ours. We will be corrected for doing wrong as they did but His mercy is greater than any fault, this is by His predetermined design and will.
We come to the place where we not only trust in out destination, we “know” it, not because of any merit found within but it is just by coming to understand His promised outcome for us “all”.

I’m always in deep appreciation that you so generously share your life with us, Rachel. You’re so articulate. I fully resonate with you, but I’m unable to put it into words that are so perfect. 💗
