In the dream consciousness we believe we are separated from unshakable peace, eternal beauty, holiness, unaltered joy, abundance within and without, limitlessness freedom, invincible vitality, undisturbed rest, unconditional love, and eternal life, which are all attributes of Truth. In this dream of separation from Truth, we strive for a pale likeness of these attributes through our mis-creations of vain imaginings (idols of empty promises) which we mistakenly believe can produce these spiritual attributes for us. These attributes are our utmost desires and we make great sacrifices as we try to obtain them through our upside down and disoriented sub-desires.
As we awaken, where we once strove for these attributes of Truth, we now rest and experience them through the creative God act of emergence.
Along the path of enlightenment, the Light of Truth fills our minds and we come to know that we already possess all these attributes in the eternal present moment. This eternal present is beyond the shadowlands of the dream that is trapped in a repeating past and all its falsity. As we awaken, we recognize these attributes comprise our true nature as one created in the likeness of God’s Self. In already possessing them, they manifest through a state of rest, not striving. Why strive for what we already possess? Instead, we simply are who we truly are. We only need a deep knowing that we are these attributes. In this state of being, our minds serve eternal Truth. In this Illumination, our minds become a creative outlet for the Truth which flows from the supra-conscious, which is the mind of the Divine Self (the Christ).
Our now illuminated mind can convey the divine thoughts of the supra-conscious that manifest these attributes into reality. Like a shining star, as we rest, the supra-conscious of God’s Self shines through us and morphs our reality into one that reflects the Truth we know. This state of being is our mind’s creative state of emergence.
In emergence, we deny/release (universal forgiveness) the illusion and give ourselves to the Truth, which we’ve learned to perceive beyond the illusion with our inner spiritual eye. In this creative shift, we no longer create from the storehouse of the sub-conscious of mistaken creations, vain imaginings, troubled memories, or a regretful past. As our mind no longer draws from this darkened place of unawareness, all it manifested falls away like an old tattered garment (the “great falling away”), and the magnificent creations of the supra-conscious take its place.
In this state of being, we no longer give concern to the past or the future. Our present moment no longer is an effect of the past, it emerges from our eternal Source of Truth that isn’t tied to a past of illusions. Further, we let go of self-determined expectations and open up to the perfect unfoldment of a reality that far exceeds our expectations. We don’t need to toil for anything. We already possess all our desires, so we can simply be and rest as all we are emerges through our now divine mind of oneness. We are not the limited body we once believed, striving for all we thought was lacking. We are magnificent, eternal, holy and ever-expanding expressions of God’s Self. The supra-conscious recreates our body/reality so that we are consumed and surrounded by the atmosphere of eternity.
Emergence is a state of being, a state of rest, a creative state in which the divine mind creates through our mind, as one. It’s a present-mindedness. When Truth is given a creative outlet through us, its emergence creates an experience of ever-present joy. We never know what will emerge in terms of perceptual reality, but it will possess the attributes of Truth. It’s an experience of beautiful surprises and unlimited joy.
