Our Intimate Companion

Our most intimate companion is the very Spirit of God.

The holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, is the very Spirit of God, thus why it is holy. It’s God manifesting his unformed essence into our eternal and internal soul companion. At God’s first thought of us, His Spirit is eternally a part of us. It’s the most beautiful changeless intimacy between us and our holy Source, that we often intimately call Father. He is our guarantee that we will awaken and experience the changeless Truth that we are the expressed Self of God.

In the dream of our embryonic Self, this Spirit manifests himself to us as our ever-present Teacher. The Spirit is the essence of divine love, thus can never and would never separate himself from us. When we still our minds to seek for Truth beyond the relative truth of our sleeping minds, we encounter his lessons. (Learning and listening to the Spirit is greatly facilitated with a pen and paper. He uses the flow of concentrated thought to unfold deep truths to us.)

The Spirit bridges our dreaming mind and our true Mind. He reveals Truth to us until our dreams are translated into a reality of Truth. Through an extremely individualized teaching of a singular Truth, he teaches us deliberately, systematically and logically beginning with where we are at in our beliefs. Though the Truth is absolute and singular, his instruction, counsel and guidance are customized to each one of us because we each start in a belief system of relative truth in which no two belief systems are the same. As the one true Teacher of us all, he takes our endless array of belief systems and transitions them into the one harmonious Truth.

As we invest our time daily and consistently into the Spirit’s instruction, he constructs a thought-system of Truth that replaces our thought-system of illusions. It’s a slow, methodical process because the dream thought-system is totally counter to the one of Truth. Our consistent investment of time is necessary for Truth to build percept upon percept. Being opposite systems and possessors of a free will, it takes diligence on our part to embrace the Truth and replace the lies we held in its place.

As we receive the words of Truth, they possess a sovereignty and light that enables our minds to perceive that what we are learning is Truth. The Truth builds perfectly and logically, which removes doubt of whether what we are learning is indeed the Truth. Truth’s perfection is undeniable. The Spirit as our Teacher gives us what no other teacher can through this individualized instruction, but what others, who are traversing their own path of enlightenment, can deepen and confirm as they learn the same Truth.

Our instruction leads us to a knowing of our inseparable oneness with this Spirit. This Spirit’s endless capacity to give unconditional love is revealed to us throughout our journey, which teaches us the nature of divine love, thus what is our true nature. Divine love encompasses all the spirit attributes and is the character of God that defines everything in Creation. It is synonymous with absolute Truth, so as we learn of one we learn of the other. (This increasing awareness of divine love is another witness that we are learning the Truth.)

The instruction from our Teacher prepares us for our journey through the borderland, which is the mental in-between place between our dreaming mind and our true Mind. It’s the place of our transformation. We traverse through an internal metamorphosis that is accomplished by universal forgiveness. The work of this ubiquitous forgiveness wipes out the dream and all it’s contents, and replaces it with our right and true Mind’s Truth, thoughts and manifestations. As we let go of all we once thought as real and true, our minds take a deep plunge into Truth and its Light dissolves the lingering beliefs of the dream’s thought-system. Our mind disengages from the dream until all dreams fade in the dawning Light of Truth.

As we awaken, just as the one divine Mind is our mind, God’s Spirit is our Spirit. There is no separation between what we experience as our spirit and the Spirit of God. Yet, our spirit, in conjunction with our individualized soul, serves the special purpose of translating the Spirit of God and its attributes into an experiential reality of endless expressions of ever-present peace, joy, holiness, abundance, freedom, creativity, vitality, beauty, and divine love.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  3. When you accept Jesus, as your Savior a miracle occurs in your heart. This miracle is the re-creation of your human spirit which experiences death through, Adam, and Eve’s original sin.
    This miracle is so outstanding because it produces a lifting of all sin, off of your shoulders, and a wonderful explosion of power from God inside your now recreated human spirit.
    You regain what Adam and Eve lost. The heavenly enlivened human spirit, which is “ZOE” Life.
    The quickening or rebirth of your spirit. “It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing”.
    The flesh includes the mind.
    Anyone who has experience the miracle of being born again will never be the same again, because it is the true beginning of greater love, the greater love of God in your heart, all provide for by taking hold of Jesus as the Lord of your life. This is the true born again experience.

    • Mishai, thank you for sharing these words straight from your soul. They filled me with joy. 😇

  4. “As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” (Rom. 8:14)

    “They are known as gods unto whom the word of God comes.” When one has rent the veil of unbelief, overcoming the hardness of his heart, and has opened his eyes so that they are no longer half closed in blindness, “that he might have eyes to see,” then he will be prepared to “be taught of God,” and will no longer be just a plodding, grubby mortal with his vision focused only upon the earth and the things and conditions thereof. He will have opened up his soul, through faith, to the extent that God’s minute instructions and powerful, loving wisdom will direct him in every act of his life. And his life will become powerful! He will begin to do the WORKS which Christ did — and then GO ON TO THE GREATER WORKS! This is the eternal promise of God to those who truly believe, not just profess to believe.

    The attaining of this divine contact with God contains the power promised — the power to “be born of the Spirit” not just in words or in self-righteous phrases or in false acclamations, But in ACTUAL FACT! And that one “will be able to come and go as the wind and no one will know from whence he came or whither he goeth!” This is the power Christ had and used as he disappeared out of the midst of those who sought to lay hold of him upon various occasions, seeking to force their wills upon Him. And this is the power He used as He walked upon the Sea of Galilee.

    “And he who is thankful in ALL THINGS shall be made glorious!” To be made glorious one would have developed the Song of Praising love and gratitude until his whole being would have fulfilled all the laws of righteousness. He would have filled the measure of his own Spiritual pattern and would be born of the Spirit and receive the almost incomprehensible power thereof. And from there on his growth would be much more speedy and perfect than the slow maturing of an infant born of the flesh. He would be able also to step across ages and eons of plodding as “his mind and lips would lose the power to hurt and wound!” And so his voice would be heard among the Gods because he would be admitted into their presence as a member of their divine, progressive glory……

  5. “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war…and he had a name written, which no man knew, but he himself” (Rev. 19:11-12).

    It sounds beautiful — our Lord and Captain has this wonderful name and it is just His, a secret name, a title so important, a treasure so valuable that it is not to be shared with any other. But that is not the portrait the Holy Spirit is painting! You see, this “unknown name” is just the reason this great battle of chapter nineteen is about to take place — because He has a name, or a nature, that mankind does not know! No one but those who are part of His many-membered body, made one in Him, know the full and true nature of God’s Christ.

    There is a great symbolic battle described in Ezekiel, chapters thirty-eight and thirty-nine. In this battle the Lord comes forth and fights against Gog and Magog and gains the victory. The Lord then explains the purpose of His great triumph, saying, “So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel” (Eze. 39:7). If, then, we are going to consider the revelation that the Lord is riding into battle bearing a name that no man knows but He Himself, we shall be obliged to recognize that that is not a good thing — it is a bad thing that His name is not known! The “names” of God and Christ are never mere empty designations. They are expressions of the divine nature and character. The fact that no one has known them and still does not know them except Christ Himself means more than the names are secret. It means rather that no one knows them in their own personal experience. In other words, no human being outside of Christ experientially shares these divine qualities and attributes in the divine nature of Jesus which are represented by His name. For example, men may hear the name “Christ,” but if they have never personally experienced the “anointing” which we have received of Him, they really don’t have the foggiest notion what the name “the Christ” is about!

    Therefore, the great truth that the Holy Spirit would make real to us today is that the wonderful purpose of the battle, is that HIS NAME SHOULD BE KNOWN! His name is His nature, and I am certain that every reader of these lines is aware that men in general, and believers in particular, are abysmally ignorant of the true nature of our Lord Jesus Christ! The deepest desire of our Lord is that the seed of God in every man should germinate and spring forth, producing the life and image of God in man…

  6. The new name is the new nature of the resurrection power and glory of our ascended Lord. It is not the name Jesus, or Lord, or Christ, or even the name The Word of God. As members of His body we have within ourselves the conscious experience of the reality, power, and authority of all those names and many more. But none of these are His new name! None of them are the secret name that no man knows but He Himself! It is the name or nature of the resurrected, ascended, glorified, enthroned Lord Jesus Christ in the heavens of the Spirit! Many would settle for the name of Jesus which means Saviour, and that is a glorious name, but it is not the name that no man knows but Him, for millions have experienced Him in that name which has been called upon them. This secret name that none of us has fully experienced yet is the name that Paul yearned to know within himself when he cried, “Oh! that I might know Him in the power of His resurrection, and in the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; if by any means I might attain to the resurrection out from among the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:10-14). Can it be made any plainer? We have experienced Christ in many of His names, putting on more and more of His nature and character, but that name which is THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION, ASCENSION, GLORIFICATION, AND ENTRHONEMENT — that full redemption in spirit, soul, and body — we do not yet fully know that name! We will know it when we ride with Him upon the white horses! And when that great battle is ended “all shall (fully) know Him, from the least of them, to the greatest.”
