Through the Door of Life

“The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26

The time is upon us when our collective consciousness transforms, so that we as a creation no longer pass through the door of death but the door of life, ending the illusion and awakening into the real. We awaken to the truth that death is only an illusion allowing the reality of eternal life to fade in all around us.

The foundational lie upholding this illusion is that Death, not God, rules all. Death has the final word in every life by proclaiming: “Thou shalt die!” Who can escape? Its will is unassailable, exalting itself above God’s will that none should die. (John 3:16) But death goes further and stands in the holy place presenting itself as our savior.

Most of us equate death with a release from suffering. We believe death frees us from the travails of illness and pain, ushering us into a place of peace and comfort. It promises to take away our unbearable burdens, worries, guilt and fears. Death is so deceptive and its call as savior so strong that some take their own life that death may save them now.

Let’s be clear, death is not a savior. The way out of suffering, fear and all other illusions isn’t through one’s belief in death’s offerings of peace and comfort. To desire death in any way, shape or form is to choose to put our will and faith in an illusion; for desiring death as a means to escape from any type of suffering sustains the illusion that both death and suffering are real. Release from this illusionary dream isn’t by being separate from our bodies (which include the reality that surrounds them). Our bodies simply reflect our beliefs. They can reflect the illusion of finiteness and death or the Truth of immortality and life. It’s our state of consciousness that shapes energy into its reflective substance and form. What we hold as truth in our minds manifests in our reality. What we believe determines whether we sleep in an illusionary dream of death or awaken to eternal life.

We subconsciously accept that we enter eternal life through death. It’s the ultimate deception because in eternal life the concept of anything dying… ever… isn’t true. Ever. We awaken from this illusion of death and suffering as our faith realigns to this Truth: death is not real. One milestone of this passage of faith is that we no longer desire or put faith in the promised comforts of death in any of its many forms, but instead give our faith to Truth. As we choose to believe death is not real and that God is our only comfort and savior, we awaken and perceive the eternally open door into the Kingdom. This door to life, which is our eternal and ever-present oneness with the divine love of God, remains hidden beneath the dream of death.

As our faith aligns to the Truth of eternal life, we encounter the temptation of death anytime we believe we are not, right now, in God’s perfect care. We are faced with a choice: we can give our faith to Truth or let it remain in the illusion. As the Spirit aligns us to Truth and we put our faith in that Truth, we trust in God’s perfect care and that his divine love never fails. We let go of the idea that death or anything else rescues us from suffering. We realize belief in death or any of its forms only keeps us bound in an illusionary reality.

This awareness reveals that the reality of eternal life, peace, joy, and immortal harmony is ever-present. As we begin to perceive beyond the illusion of death, an awareness of our oneness with God reveals the Kingdom of God is at hand, dissolving the illusion. As we perceive the Kingdom within, we perceive it without. It’s always been, but the illusion of death has hidden it.

Therefore, our escape from the illusion and into life is found in awareness of our oneness with God, not death. The Spirit of God is the eternal living energy of divine love, which extends to all and gives His life to all. Being a part of God’s eternal life we could never die. If we believe in death, we choose the illusion. If we believe in God’s eternal life, we choose Truth. We can’t choose both.

Eternal and unfailing divine love is the Spirit of the Father; the Savior that Jesus Christ extended into creation. In the illusion, death stands as a savior. As we become aware of our oneness with the Spirit of the Father and let go of death’s illusion by no longer putting our faith in it, we begin reflecting eternal life and shine in the likeness of the Father. As the Spirit expels illusionary thoughts of death, our mind becomes a sanctuary (the holy place) for the holy thoughts of God. Our will is joined to God’s and in this oneness our desires of eternal life are manifested. This transformation is a rebirth, from the dream-like “reality” of the finite, into the true reality of the infinite.

Life is But a Dream

A quick reminder … The perfection of Truth is always beyond our finite understanding. Therefore, what we proclaim is always according to our present awareness as we progress out of darkness and ever-deeper into the Light of eternal Truth. As we attune our internal ears and eyes to the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit aligns our understanding and beliefs to Truth. This awareness of progressive understanding is the humility that enables us to continue to learn and grow as a divine being.

We are as God created us and nothing can change that; we are holy, sacred, pure, good and most importantly through this embryonic state we become perfection beyond perfection, which is our ability to ever expand in oneness with God. It’s only in our self-made, illusionary reality (which our senses convince us is real), do we imagine we are limited and separate (cut-off) from God in any way.

Separation from God is impossible because divine love is all-inclusive. Therefore, we must be recipients of his love and are destined to be expressions of his love. In this, we see suffering could never be his eternal will and instead suffering is our creation because we mistakenly believe we are separate from his love. This false belief constructs an illusionary reality that we experience as real because of our physical senses, which are also a part of the illusion. If we trust and put our faith in our senses we remain bound in unawareness. Because we hear, see, taste, smell, and feel we assume what they “tell” us is truth, yet even in this dream how often have our senses misled us. Our true eternal state is perpetual peace, abundance, joy, love, and all the attributes God fashioned in us as a part of Himself.

If we believe suffering is of God, then we make him a sufferer, something he is not. This false image of God enslaves us to suffering. God is eternal and his reality contains nothing of finite characteristics. Only in the darkened dream of illusions can we create such a false image. Jesus Christ came to dispel such illusions not reinforce them – removing sickness, lying thought-forms (aka demons), and even death. He came giving abundant life and proclaiming the “Kingdom of God is at hand”.

However everything serves a divine purpose even this dream. In this dream we experience an illusionary absence of love that we may desire to choose love of our own free will. It affords us this Divine Choice – a choice to be what we are: at one with God’s loving attributes, holy and of his likeness. It provides us a liberty of will that creates a capacity to outpour and extend his divine love. This free-will Choice establishes in us the divine quality of love that makes it what it is – unconditional and freely given. Love gives because it wants to give (an element of “choice”). By choosing the true image of God, in accordance with divine love, we are now empowered to dissolve suffering from our reality because we awaken to the truth that we were always one with this love. In consciously making the Divine Choice, our love of God and all of creation is sincere and not “robotic”, which pure love can never be.

In this dream we live our illusions. Just like a night dream, our reality isn’t actually real, it only seems real. Our illusions are confined to a finite, temporary dream state of consciousness. In our night dreams, we create all we perceive – every character, situation, etc., and we do the same with this “reality.” Science is finally catching up with this aspect of reality that truth-seekers have known for centuries: life is but a dream.

We awaken as we stop putting faith, trust and belief in what our external senses perceive and put them in the internal Voice of God that only speaks peace, love, and eternal life to us. In this realignment of faith (awakening), we begin to release the finite concepts we “created” of sin, evil, guilt, fear, shame, separation, condemnation, suffering, lack, etc. As we go through this transition we struggle and go through many ups and downs as the depth of our illusions are unearthed so we may be liberated into the Truth. To believe in what you internally hear from the Spirit and not what you outwardly see with your eyes is challenging. To believe that our perceived suffering isn’t real is extremely difficult, but it’s how we move out of the illusion and into the Truth. If we persist we are carried in the arms of transformative grace through this transition, and we cannot fail because divine love never fails.

What we believe we create. As we cease to believe in the massive illusion we’ve created, and instead put our faith in Truth, then we will manifest the Kingdom of God as our reality.
