Goodbye My Old Friend

background-1782882_640

Goodbye My Old Friend

My inner child speaks in rhythmic refrain
As I proclaim my freedom from death’s reign:

My old friend it’s time to let you go.

You stood as my hope and comfort from life’s pain
As thoughts of you flooded my mind like drowning rain.

You promised to set me free from unbearable afflictions
To take me through the consummate transition.

To steal me away in the night into endless sleep
To send me through the gates of eternal peace.

You promised to take me to a distant land
Far from the cries of suffering I could hardly stand.

“This will be your eternal home
When I come to take you as my own.”

Your proclamations of my end
Came as a voice of a much needed friend.

When life seemed kind you stood quietly waiting
For bound in time my joy was fleeting.

Again, I welcomed your coming as life tore me in pieces.
Your darkening touch would save me from taunting curses.

Thankfully you didn’t answer this mistaken call
For you were but a part of my illusionary fall.

Unwavering you stood as savior in my dream of suffering
The one to lay me to rest and end all my struggling.

When fear was my enemy, you were my friend,
My surety that his torments would eventually end.

Embracing you made me feel fearless and strong
But now I see my foolishness and wrong.

So I give up the illusion of you.

My hope in you disguised my true liberation.
Joyous life and peace hid behind your empty deliberations.
How could you – nothingness – offer me redemption?

Disguised in empty promises, you came as a friend
Offering something new and wonderful in the end.

Phantom whispers of release, freedom and joy
But you were but a thief to steal, kill and destroy

So I gave up the illusion of you and chose One who is true.

This One guarded my soul while I dreamt of you.
Now his divine love is my only truth.
His love fails me not and feeling its strength

It’s all I desire, so I let you go for the True.

In His open heart resides my eternal peace.
There is no delay in his timeless gifts of grace.
They, as He, are forever present within the holy place.

He stood beyond the narrow gate.
In a Light so bright it brought me to a new fate.

His love beckons me out of the illusion of you.
My heart rejoices at his call I now hear as true
And his voice steadily leads me into eternal youth.

No longer through a barren land do I roam.
Today, in this present moment, I am home.

So, I leave you in the place of forgotten dreams
And empty my mind of your endless games.

I take back the treasure I so easily gave away in vain.
Goodbye old imaginary friend, your loss is my eternal gain.

The Journey’s End

sunlight-166733_640

As we accept the bountiful gift of emergence, we become the Altar of Truth and its radiant Light. The gate of Heaven stands open for all to enter into the divine love of God.

As we look back on our prodigal journey, we see its perfection. We didn’t know its end, though we felt its call. Every step, struggle, pain, disappointment and what we thought we lacked drove us up the mountain of Truth until we found what we were seeking and our journey’s end. The Spirit of Truth was our most brilliant guide, who for not one step left our side. From the vision at the mountain top, we see our journey was the most loving path we could have walked. Its end is the beginning of awakening into divine love, which we give to all through emergence. We are beyond grateful.

In the present moment of a timeless mind, we only experience divine love as our present moment unfolds in the perfection for the highest good for all. Divine love fulfills every need perfectly rebuilding, restoring and renewing. Where there once dwelt illusions of lack, loss, compromise and sacrifice, they fade in the dawning Light of our awakened soul. All that were bound are now revealed as limitless and free.

Now we begin a new journey unfolding through emergence.

Freeing the Mind

 

bodensee-2789294_640

As we awaken to the Laws of Truth, our Mind is set free.

As we marvel at the shining pillar of Truth upon the Holy Altar, our mind’s eye is filled with a joyous sparkle as we realize our mind is freed from the reign of darkness. In the undeniable Light of Truth, the dreaming mind loses all power to continue to create an illusionary reality.

Whatever thoughts the mind believes even if they aren’t of Truth, it projects and creates. Thoughts are strengthened by laws that support them, whether the lower laws of the dream or the Laws of Truth. The more deeply rooted a law, the more definitively it’s believed and expressed, therefore the more difficult it is to uproot. For example, the lower law that all must die is deeply engrained into the dream’s thought-system, it’s strongly believed and therefore consistently expressed.

The lower laws of the dreaming mind contradict Truth, which is only possible in a dream. Established by erroneous past learning, lower laws only exist because the mind believes them. Their source is darkness, the absence of Truth, therefore they have no true source. Once the mind stops believing them, they lose power, and cease to create an illusionary reality.

Along our sacred journey, the Spirit of Truth methodically reveals to us the Laws of Truth, by which our divine Mind functions. These higher laws have always existed because their Source is ever-present Truth. However, until the soul began its prodigal journey to the Light, these Laws remained unknown. In its dream state, the soul believed a contradictory thought-system based on lower laws, which put the soul under an illusionary bondage that caused great suffering.

The function of the Spirit of Truth is to transform our belief system from the lower laws to the higher laws, which give expression to our true Self. This transition isn’t simple, because our false beliefs are deeply rooted with many “witnesses”.  These witnesses are faulty projections of the dreaming mind, but the sleeping soul doesn’t know that until it begins to receive revelation from the Spirit. Then it begins to question everything it once believed and with this openness of mind, it begins to grow in the awareness of Truth. The Spirit’s perfect and systematic instruction reveals an integrated thought-system based on the Laws of Truth. Because our mind can’t believe in two contradictory thought-systems, as our faith increases in the higher laws, our belief decreases in the lower laws. We remain under the Spirit’s perfect tutelage until our mind obtains an operational awareness of the thought-system of Truth in which we join in oneness with the Spirit and create according to the higher laws.

As our mind’s eye awakens to the singular Source of the Light of Life, the Altar of Truth, a monumental shift occurs in our mind. We clearly see the Laws of Truth extending from this true Source. Simultaneously, we see the lower laws are not of this Source. With our faith perfected in this Holy Light, our mind comprehensively denies the illusion its physical eyes behold because it plainly sees it has no source. In a quiet moment of infinite power, the mind makes a transformative shift at the root of its belief system, ending the continuous manifestations of illusions.

Upon our mind’s release, our deliberate and methodical integration into the higher laws of Truth commences. Through emergence, as our conscious awareness is joined with the supra-conscious (our shared Mind with God that is beyond our conscious awareness), we begin to create according to the Laws of Truth. Freed from the lower laws, our present moment trends upward as it is orchestrated for the highest good for all. As we rest, the supra-conscious in its quiet power unfolds the perfect present moment, like the gentle yet all-powerful ascent of light into the darkness. This power of emergence resides in the pre-creative space at the origin of our soul, beyond our awareness. We don’t know what the next moment will bring, but we know it will increasingly reflect our true Source, and this magnificent unfoldment is our eternal joy.

As the dream fades and Eternal Peace emerges, we experience ever-increasing favorable present moments because Peace emerges through us. The Laws of Truth create what the lower laws never could; a free Mind that creates peace on earth and good will to all.


The Laws of Truth in relation to the lower laws they override:

  • Law of Truth: Only Truth is real and nothing else exists; only in an illusion is Truth not expressed.
  • Law of Holy Birth: All must awaken into the true Self, all can not die.
  • Law of Life: Life is a multiplication of Truth, not a decent toward death.
  • Law of Holiness: All are holy as an extension of God’s holiness, only a false image can be unholy.
  • Law of One Source: Truth is of the one Source in the eternal present, not the past.
  • Law of Oneness: What is done for one is done for all, nothing is done in isolation or separation.
  • Law of One Will: Our will and God’s will are one in the same, our will cannot override God’s will.
  • Law of One Mind: Souls are united in one Mind, souls are not many separated minds.
  • Law of Love: Love is always good, and never tainted by fear.
  • Law of Extending Love: Love extends from endless joy, not from sacrifice, compromise or loss.
  • Law of Emergence: Only divine love is expressed in emergence, fear has no true source.
  • Law of Creation: The creative power of the soul is emergence, not effort through physical forms.
  • Law of Projection: Reality is projected from the mind, it is not separate and outside the self.
  • Law of the Eternal Present: Only the present moment exists, the past is not extended into the future.
  • Law of Giving: What you give you receive, there is only gain and never loss.

Meditation of Oneness

sunset-2754909_640

In the stillness, this beautiful vision fills my being and touches all of creation.

Father of my true Self, you are my heart, you are the love I give. You are my mind, you are the divine thoughts I think. You are my vision, it’s your eye of Light and Truth by which I see. You are my voice, it’s your words of life I speak. You are my will, it’s your will as my own moving through me and creating. You are my eternal present moment, you fill all in all. You are my Source and your likeness emerges through me. We are One.

Father of Heaven joins with my waking soul, they are one. This oneness extends the vibration of life into all of creation like the sun touching all with its life-giving Spirit.

The Sacred Looking Glass

Reflection

As we move into the Light, we become the Light.

The false idea of our self covers our mind putting us into a deep sleep. Like a dense fog, this false image distorts all our thoughts, perceptions and ideas of what is true and what is real. When our source of truth is past learning, then we look to the world to tell us who we are and we believe it. It’s speaks numerous lies that we accept as our truth, that we are weak, frail, vulnerable, sinful, forgotten, abandoned, limited, unloved, unworthy, little, insignificant, finite, bound to the past, and the list goes on and on. Lost in this darkness, our minds construct a false image from which we project and perceive a reality reflecting similar traits. The voices of our illusions speak loudly, convincing us we are sick, bound to decay and death, victims of fear, and destined to suffer.

When we begin our sacred journey into Truth, all we once believed as truth becomes unraveled. As we sit in the power of stillness and go deep into the present moment, we hear the gentle Voice of the Spirit of Truth telling us we are nothing like the image of ourselves we imagined. As he breaks through our layers of darkness with revelations of Truth, he calls us out of the mist of meaninglessness and madness, and into the perfection and peace of our true Self.

As we listen to the Spirit of Truth, little by little we leave the lies of the illusion and advance toward the Light of our true Self. This Light is hidden in the darkness created by the fearful thoughts our false image creates. We continually run from our frightful false image and cover it with anything the world tells us is desirable and acceptable. The Spirit leads us right through these false coverings and our fears, giving us peace and strength to face our most challenging and seemingly unshakeable illusions. After persistence down this winding prodigal path forsaking all we once learned in exchange for the revelations of the Spirit, we begin to deeply comprehend the nature of our true Self. This awareness prepares us for the passage through the narrow gate, the borderland of universal forgiveness, through which all the illusions are stripped from our mind leaving the shining revelation of our true Self.

By giving divine gratitude we release the lingering distortions of our false self and joyfully accept the perfection of emergence, from which our true Self arises. All the voices of the illusion we once heard become distant echoes as our minds ascend to the reality of the Real. These voices which once told us who we were have no place or power in the Light of the True and Real.

As we approach the Altar of Truth, its Holy Light is like a sacred looking glass that reveals our true reflection for the first time. Lost in the darkness with no true mirror, we only saw ourself according to the reflection of our imagination. We believed ourselves to be all sorts of things and accepted those imaginings as true. Now, we marvel as we gaze into the face of Christ, which is the true face of every soul. In the Light we know we ARE the Light, and we become a looking glass for others to see their true Self. As each one looks upon their beautiful reflection, the Light of Truth expands into creation revealing what has always been but our sleeping minds could never perceive in the darkness: we are the glorious likeness of our Father.

As the Light of Life shines into creation, peace is restored to the souls which God created as His Self, His temple, His eternal joy, His ever-present love extended into eternity, and wholly one with Him. All fear is senseless and unreal in the divine presence of our true Self. From this moment of seeing our true reflection a new reality begins to emerge, one flowing from the divine thoughts of our true Self, who is the Self of God.


As the dreamer slept, the Christ came in one, because the one were many.

As the dreamer awakened, Christ came in many, because the many were one.
