Manifesting a Divine Reflection
The Kingdom of God
Reality reflects the attributes that create it.
As the soul becomes united to the divine consciousness, its reflective reality begins to alter in beautiful and magnificent ways. As the soul is no longer self-determining anything, the divine attributes governed by the divine consciousness begin to methodically determine the soul’s expressions. The soul transitions from being a dormant and image bound creation into a living and divinely free creation.
Our reality assembles itself by conscious observation. Until we observe it, it remains waves of potential. In this simulated and projective nature of our reality, our state of consciousness determines what we see and our experience of reality. Thus to change our reality, our consciousness has to change, which is what Jesus Christ came preaching and teaching. The Kingdom of God, governance of the divine consciousness, comes from within. It comes through a change of spirit or consciousness (new birth), which alters the outward reflection or experiential reality, thus manifesting the Kingdom outwardly.
Formulation of Consciousness
Our core attributes defined by their relative truths that make up our soul’s foundation flow through seven expressive soul elements. The unique combination of each element defines our particular expression in any moment. Assimilating in various qualities and proportions, they interpret and create our conscious experience and shape our reflective reality in a vast array of expressions.
- 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.
- Desires. Our creative intention or response to our current awareness.
- Words. Our cognitive expression of our assimilated truths.
- Perception. Our level of comprehension based on level of awareness.
- Will. Our internal combustion to create.
Depending on our soul’s foundation, these elements can be self-driven or divinely driven. A divine soul projects the fulfilled promise of immortality represented by the energetic vibration of the seven colors of the rainbow (ROYGBIV).
Image Bound Creation
Images, physical or abstract, are a directive force in the self-determined consciousness’ creative process. Being image driven is why visioning or visualization is a popular technique in trying to change one’s life. However, within the self-determined consciousness, the soul is bound from creating the fullness of its desires. With a foundation of a lack of divine love and its corresponding attributes, the soul tries to create a reflective reality of desirable images; often images reflecting attributes counter to its foundational attributes. For example, it tries to create a loving family image out of a soul of fear and control, harmony in its relationships out of its disharmonious emotional expressions, and acceptance of self out of its inherent sense of rejection. So from the foundation of discordant attributes, the soul strives for the likeness of the “perfect” career, spouse, marriage, family, home life, lifestyle, physical appearance, and religious or spiritual appearance all defined by particular images that are pleasing to the soul. It doesn’t work. Though it may obtain aspects of the image, it experiences the attributes that manifested it; its discordant foundational attributes. To change the experiential reality, the foundational attributes have to change.
The experiential reality including the emotional atmosphere of the soul isn’t based on what the image seems to reflect or promise, but it’s based on how the soul goes about obtaining the image. Images themselves don’t produce the desired states that they appear to project. They are empty. There is nothing behind them; but the image itself and the soul’s desire for that image because of what it believes it will create in its life.
The experiential reality is crafted by the soul’s foundational attributes and what it does in pursuit of an image. As the self tries to gather a certain image from the world to be a part of its image, a “successful” career, often its emotional state is compromised; overworked, neglected, ignored, suppressed, withdrawn, dishonored, etc. The soul constantly forfeits its emotional wellbeing for obtainment of the images it desires. It’s driven by its core attributes of fear, control, false-judgment, conditional love, vindictiveness, anger, self-pity, self-righteousness, selfishness, and in the process of trying to obtain the image it creates its reality based on these attributes. Thus, the soul’s experiential reality contains these attributes, again whether it achieves aspects of the superficial image or not.
This outside in mentality creates a lifeless image-bound soul-life. This is why people can achieve the images and still feel empty. Thus, they pursue more images as the pursuit itself masks the void.
In this image mentality, the soul strives to connect to God through images. Through rituals, ceremonies, sacraments, and religious settings, the soul seeks a connection to God by obtaining the likeness of being connected to Him through manifesting images of what it thinks it means to be connect to God. Thus, the soul pursues the image of him, and in this illusion doesn’t possess the truth of him. This fundamental disconnect keeps the soul bound in darkness. When the soul seeks to know God in spirit and truth, it begins to step outside of this image bound mentality and finds the path of enlightenment, which begins its journey to becoming a divine soul.
During the soul’s transformation into a divine soul, the soul is led by the Spirit of Truth to let go of its empty images and to begin to live in faith from the divine attributes. This creates an undoing of its reality, because the soul built a life on images. As the soul lets go of the obtainment of the images and this manner of creating its reality, the images fall away as something far more glorious takes its place; a manifestation of the divine attributes.
Divinely Free Creation
The divine consciousness is driven and directed by the divine attributes (love, honor, compassion, humility, forgiveness, gentleness, integrity, equanimity, magnanimity, etc). Thus, the divine soul desires to express the divine attributes, versus obtaining some particular image, to fulfill its purpose and desires. It leaves the creation of its reflective reality to the Spirit’s craftsmanship through those attributes. The divine attributes are reflections of truth that manifest divine potentials in creation. The reflection or image is a by-product, not the driver. It grows out of the attributes. When a reality is created this way, it’s an abundant multi-dimensional living reality directed by the Spirit of God from within the soul. Because the soul isn’t determining the image or reflection but simply living by the attributes themselves, the soul becomes a witness to what the Spirit of God through the divine attributes manifests through its soul in its reflective reality, which creates a magnificent reflection of perfect cause in righteousness.
As the divine consciousness layers one moment of perfect cause upon another it creates ripple after ripple of harmony. This layering of each moment defined by the divine attributes manifests a beautifully rich and expansive experience of those divine attributes. Instead of possessing a lifeless two-dimensional likeness created by empty images, the soul experiences a living multi-dimensional divinely free reality. It’s infinite and limitless in its expressions as its governed by the Spirit of God.
In this the soul begins to interact with its reality in an authentic and living way. For example, when the soul creates by the divine attributes, it truly sees itself and others. In this perspective of light, it connects to others according to divine love. This transition feels like the heart opening up to be a fount of divine love. In this reality, the soul doesn’t have to sacrifice anything to get everything. The soul creates out of joy, harmony, divine love, and every magnificent divine attribute and this is what the soul experiences and its reality reflects.
