Renewing the Mind

wave-2754904_640

As we meld into the divine Mind, we experience a natural, logical and systematic integration. The divine Mind (mind of Christ) isn’t a spiritualized idea beyond our attainment, but about becoming who we truly are and always have been. It isn’t fantastical or magical, but a real metamorphosis of our mind, giving it ability to process divine thought. It’s growing in soundness of mind through a transformation into the spiritual realm (thought-system) of abundance. Divine thoughts conveyed through this mind are able to translate the reality around us into eternal peace, harmony, and joy.

The source of what we see is our mind.

As an immortal fractal of the divine Mind, our mind is like an open gate to the one divine Mind. In this, we are each the creative consciousness center of reality. True vision comes from the divine Mind and has the ability to transform our reality from things to fear, into a reality of peace and harmony. Vision shapes energy into the reality of forms we experience. What we see begins with what we see within. What we see within defines our thoughts. Our thoughts and the energy they project shape our reality and all our experiences. Thus, true transformation begins with perceiving the Truth which then our thoughts and the beliefs support. Transformation through our thought life is how we engage the divine mind we all share and embrace its power to transform us from the inside out.

Because our thoughts create our reality, other people and situations appear as we inwardly perceive them. They are reflections of our thoughts and thought energy. What we experience does not often appear immediately correlated to our thoughts, but it is a result of thought energy. For example, if we cater to fearful thoughts in one area, we’ll create fearful experiences in other areas. This connection often goes unrecognized to the sleeping mind as it doesn’t clearly see how it is creating its reality. We are the source of the fear energy thus we are the ones creating situations to fear. The reality follows our thoughts. Our reality isn’t separate from us, it is a projection of our minds. By the renewing of our minds, our realty can be greatly altered. If the reality was the cause of our experiences and not our thoughts, we would be in inescapable bondage.

  • If we complain (projecting thoughts of dissatisfaction), we continually create situations to complain about.
  • If we rush (projecting thoughts of lack of time), we create situations where we never have enough time.
  • If we are unforgiving with anyone (projecting thoughts of guilt), we suffer from a poor and degrading image of ourself.
  • If we think in lack whether physically, emotionally or spiritually, we experience lack.
  • If we hold fearful thoughts, we create fearful situations.
  • If we extend hurtful thoughts, we create things that induce hurt.
  • If we think we are vulnerable, we create harm and suffering.
  • If we condemn, we create reflections that induce more judgment.
  • If we have attack thoughts, we create a reality that attacks us.
  • If we are dishonest, our reality is dishonest with us.
  • If we have a taking mentality, then our reality takes from us.

Mindful Spirit-Led Practice

Our reality and our experiences change through the renewing of our mind. A prayerful, spirit-led practice retrains and reorients our mind to see differently, therefore create a different reality. As we daily sit with the Spirit of Truth, our minds receive divine thoughts. Throughout our day, the Spirit will bring these divine thoughts to our awareness as it retrains our minds according to Truth. As these divine thoughts come to mind, we are able to replace contrary thoughts with Truth.

When we complain about our present moment, it’s because we fear what it might bring. By being lead by the Spirit, we learn to rest in emergence where divine thoughts can be conveyed and experienced rather than harboring fearful thoughts about what we experience or perceive. Initially this rest is difficult because fearful thoughts have owned our mind. Yet, the present moment is where we experience the expressed love of God. When we rest in the present rather than complain, we become consciously aware of God’s love which drives out all fear from our thoughts. When there is no fear in our thoughts, then we will not create anything to fear in our reality.

As the Spirit connects us to the divine Mind, our mind is transformed and able to convey divine thoughts. God’s divine thoughts begin to flow through us, and in this our reality starts to become one of unalterable peace, invulnerability, harmony and joy.


 

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

~ Romans 12:2

Metamorphic Rumblings

Angel Wings

As we gaze into the Sacred Looking Glass, the living light from the Holy Altar illuminates our mind transforming our thoughts into liquid gold. We enter a metamorphosis marked by the rumblings of transformation as our mind methodically becomes united with the four pillars of the Altar of Truth (Divine Self, Timelessness, Law of Love, Emergence).

Truth begins to illuminate our mind to such a depth and degree that it transforms us from the false image of our self into expressions of our true Self, an immortal fractal of the divine Mind. Up to this point we understood concepts of Truth (the purpose of our prodigal journey), but now we become reflections of Truth. During this metamorphosis, light invades the darkness, truth consumes the lies, divine love drives out fear, forgiveness replaces judgment, and perceptions of illusions become knowledge of Truth.

As we meld with the divine Mind and rest in emergence, we gain victory over the lingering illusions in our mind. Illusions exist because our beliefs support them. Thoughts, energetic projections of our beliefs, extend out from us and give shape to the reality we perceive. In emergence, we stop catering to illusions. The past no longer determines our present moment or future, and we no longer seek to control or govern our future. Emergence is a present-minded state of being that allows our thoughts to become divine, which create reflections of eternal peace and joy.

In emergence, we no longer pay attention to the forms of reality originally created by our discordant thought energy. Instead, we attune inwardly to the energetic vibrations of Truth, which extend gratitude outward. We no longer appease our fears through the multitude of idols established to protect and defend ourselves. Instead, we turn to the Truth within by which we create nothing to fear. As we rest in emergence, the divine Will moves through us in ways beyond our conscious awareness and fashions our present moment in the perfection of peace and harmony for all.

As our mind shifts from dreaming to waking (from illusion to Truth), we experience metamorphic rumblings signifying our transformation. Our mind experiences an energetic confrontation of our two opposing belief systems that manifest as rumblings in our emotional and physical sensory experiences as it tries to decipher its truth:

Is our truth what we perceive with our bodily senses even though it counters what we’ve been taught by the Spirit OR is our truth the revelations we’ve received from the Spirit of Truth despite what we see? 

These metamorphic rumblings result from our mind’s struggle between the apparent truth of the perceived reality and the teachings of peace revealed by the Spirit of Truth. It’s a “David and Goliath battle” between the core beliefs of these two opposing thought-systems; most significantly that love is conditional (unkind) verses love is unconditional (kind), thus it’s a “war in heaven, the realm of love”.

Because of these rumblings our beliefs come head to head in which only one belief system remains standing. Despite the illusion’s taunting, our faith, which has been perfected in Truth, overcomes the illusion. No matter now real and powerful the illusion appears, faith enables us to rest in emergence (the divine orchestration of our present moment in accordance for the best interests of all).

These rumblings fill our sensory experiences to cause us to engage our will so we transition from one spiritual realm (thought-system), to the other. They require us to push into Truth in a way we otherwise couldn’t, but in a way that is necessary for the metamorphosis of our mind, from which all of reality is manifested. As we rest in emergence instead of running to our idols, these rumblings serve to awaken our mind. It transitions from creating a dream where we suffer the effects of giving and receiving conditional love, to unveiling the Real where our true Self only gives and receives unconditional love. For a mind that has abided in darkness where love was unkind and created endless witnesses to this belief, the mind is seemingly at war within itself as it questions and tests its true beliefs.

These rumblings are a powerful and deceptive tactic that appear to affect the wellbeing of ourself and others. Striking at the very heart of our belief system, they taunt and tempt us to find peace in idols. These illusions are physically experienced, therefore the only way they are overcome is through divine emergence. The Truth we hold is able to defeat the apparent realness of these strong delusions and replace them with reflections of peace.

Our mind resists letting go of what it currently believes. The mind learned to believe that what it sees is true, yet its has been taught by the Spirit that what it sees actually violates Truth (i.e. fear, suffering, pain, lack, death, decay). It’s a very difficult transition for the mind. However, the blessed gift of emergence, where the mind is fully given over to divine Truth, assures that we will no longer create a reality according to our old belief system. All we once thought, believed and held onto erroneously as truth is released, cut off, and purged.

All things become new.


 

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith. ~ 1 John 5:4

A Meaningful Reflection

Happiness

Our true meaning is contained in the meaning of God.

God’s meaning is our meaning. We give expression to Truth and Divine Love (the Spirit essence of God) in ever expanding fractal components (where the meaning of the whole abides in each part). In this, God is all in all. We accomplish this expression through the Law of Giving or Creating Gain/Eternal Growth, which manifests eternal Life.

Many have searched for their own personal meaning, which encompasses the desire and search for purpose, value and significance. However, true meaning can’t be found in a reality of illusions and dreams; where what we physically see isn’t Truth, but images created by our thoughts cast upon the screen of our sleeping mind.

Seeking true meaning among illusions causes us to endlessly search for meaning where it isn’t found. It sends us on endless attempts to try to fill that void with finite imaginings whose fleeting fulfillment leave us empty and feeling meaningless. In this confusion of what is Truth and what is illusion, we apply erroneous meaning to the reality around us, and as a result we blind ourselves to Truth. We sought for what can only be found in an awakened state. So if you are feeling this reality is meaningless in itself, you are right. This acknowledgement can be a step toward finding the highest meaning you could possibly possess, the meaning you possess right NOW and always have.

The meaning of the embryonic sleep, the dream, is to perceive in darkness what we can’t in the Light. The embryonic sleep’s purpose is to reveal God to us, and to know our true Self, which is God’s Self, in a way not possible in the Light, because in the Light we and God are indistinguishable to our conscious experience.

The only meaning of the darkness is to know our true Self, which isn’t the false image we created of ourselves in our dream. If we seek meaning among the images of our false self we remain lost in the darkness of sleep. The deep knowing that we are created by God, and yet the apparent disconnect from being God’s magnificent expression is present to prompt us to seek beyond the illusions for our true meaning, thus our true Self.

As a fractal component, containing the whole in the part, we had to see beyond ourself to our Creator so we could truly know our true Self thus our Creator. The only way to see beyond our Self, who is the Self of God, is by a reality of contrast to that Self. Otherwise we would not perceive God and though we would be created in perfection, we would not contain the meaning and fullness of God’s expression. We would not perceive divine love’s sovereignty over us and through us, thus we would be unable to experience joy from intimacy with of God. This knowing of God’s Self as our own, in oneness, comes through the contrast of darkness, and allows us to fully partake of the divine Mind. In the awareness of our shared divine Mind, we eternally expand and grow, i.e. possess eternal Life.

Our true meaning is to give God expression.

Without creation God remains unformed and uncreated. To give God expression we need to be one Mind with Him, thus recognize we are a fractal component of the one Mind and not a separate “perfected” mind, which we would have been without this temporary dream state. As a fractal component, we possess all the characteristics of the whole, and we eternally expand through fractal multiplication. The union of the Spirit of Truth (God) and our individualized soul (consciousness center), expresses our and God’s shared meaning and purpose; to eternally extend creation in Truth and Divine love.

Do you see how valuable, precious and sacred you are? Whether you see it now or not, you are, NOW. This Truth can’t be altered as your true meaning can’t be altered because it is one with God’s. To become aware of your true meaning, you have to look beyond the illusion, which is reality as you currently perceive it. You have to remove all the meaning you applied to it in error and seek its true meaning, and in doing so you find your own. If you hold onto the meaningless as meaningful, you stay asleep. If you embrace this Truth, you will see yourself and all your reality in a new Light, one that leads to eternal Life, and has meaning beyond what you ever imagined.

Invincible

arrangement-4420041_640

Our perception determines our experiences in the dream. What and how we perceive with our mind’s eye, we create in the dream reality. It’s a “reality” that reflects our thoughts back to us, and our thoughts are our experience; emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Our reality reflects the meaning we give to it.

For true forgiveness (release from all pain and suffering), to occur within us in all its healing power, we need to see that we can’t be harmed or cause harm. The present moment always allows a release from pain by welcoming divine love’s creation of perfect harmony and peace that sends us onto a new trajectory. However, with blindness to this ever-present gift we needlessly “choose” to stay in our pain and suffering. When the ability to harm and cause pain is real to us, it’s difficult to truly forgive ourselves and others, but when we see it as a faulty perception of our minds, we find a deep release whereby we cease to create harm and pain. Can the Self of God (our true Self) be harmed or cause harm? No, and as we awaken out of the reality of pain we created in error, we experience our true Self and this Truth.

What we believe we experience. Who we believe we are, we experience. The meaning we choose to apply, we experience. In this dream reality, we experience our thoughts, not Truth, unless our thoughts are of Truth. We are the only ones that subject ourselves, emotions, bodies and reality to pain which we do by our free will choice. We can make another choice.

To see ourselves as invulnerable and invincible is to choose to see our true Self as revealed by the Spirit of Truth, otherwise we are holding onto an illusion we’ve made real to our mind thus experience in our reality.

The Truth sets us free. In the awareness of Truth there is only divine love in which there is no pain or suffering. When we rest in the emergence of divine love in the present moment, we cease to create harm and pain and in its place we create harmony and peace. As we awaken, we experience a reality that increasingly reflects this Truth.

Love is Light.
